Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Excellent crew."
Cons: "Gate agents were a little snippy."
Cons: "The Seattle gate agents never said which flight they were calling and since neighboring gates were boarding at the same time it was very confusing and rather chaotic."
Cons: "3 1/2 hr delay"
Pros: "Dinner was great"
Pros: "Crew and service was amazing"
Cons: "Paid $28 for internet and it didn’t work"
Pros: "Cabin crew and entire experience was phenomenal. Cannot recommend Delta more!"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Food could have been better, seat was uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew, food, flight."
Cons: "Could always use a wider seat. I just hate having my hips touching a stranger for the whole trip."
Cons: "Plane was late taking off. Crew did not provide water when requested. They were busy with beverages that they could sell at a cost."
Pros: "Crew very friendly and courteous"
Cons: "Would’ve been nicer to have lunch rather than breakfast"
Cons: "Best option across the pond"
Pros: "All the attention bestowed upon me"
Cons: "Seats hardly recline. Very difficult to sleep in this red eye flight."
Pros: "Some of the crew members talked loudly in the galley all night long. Mostly gossiping and complaining. We had the last seats next to the galley, so it was frustrating to not have quiet and be able to sleep. This was a flight run by Delta for Air France."
Cons: "The food was horrible."
Pros: "Lisa @ the Boston Delta check-in counter is AMAZING! She's super helpful and essentially saved our vacation! Her coworkers say she's the best and I couldn't agree more! Delta is very lucky to have someone like Lisa on their team!"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about! If I really head to be picky maybe the in-flight meals were smaller than I expected. But again, nothing that bothered me"
Cons: "Noise in cabin unable to sleep"
Cons: "I couldn’t sleep in a chair... wish I could"
Pros: "Great service. Smooth flight. Funny flight attendants. No issues boarding or deplaning."
Cons: "Food wasn’t great. What’s new?"
Pros: "Got to London on-time (early, actually) and safely. The in flight meal was okay. The leg room in comfort plus was great, the mobile app was awesome, and the staff (check-in, gate, cabin and flight deck) were professional and friendly all around."
Cons: "The leg room was great, but as a broad-shouldered guy, the width of the seat was miserable. Unfortunately, the Delta 767 doesn't offer any upgrade for a wider seat beyond Delta One, and my employer won't spring for that. Too bad there isn't a premium economy option. Also, the entertainment unit in the seat next to mine malfunctioned, which you wouldn't think would impact me that much except that because it was "seeing" touches randomly throughout the flight, the screen would turn on, off, brighter, dimmer, play random stuff, and just generally be as annoying as possible to everyone nearby throughout an overnight flight."
Pros: "I am always impressed by the Delta staff. Top notch."
Cons: "The entertainment screens have an (older) head phone jack that many people do not have. The headphones available for purchase by the airline are of very poor quality. I also am surprised that airlines (not just Delta) continue to provide such low quality food options on flights. I think consumers would pay more for better options."
Pros: "Fantastic Pilots and a great flight attendant."
Pros: "The plane left on time if not a bit early."
Cons: "With the exception of 1 really nice flight attendant all the others were extremely moody and not helpful. I didn’t see one of them smile through the whole flight like they were just going through the motions. I’ve worked in jobs where you have to deal with the general public but you have a job to do and must smile and do your best to be helpful. I felt intimidated to even ask for anything like I was wasting their time. I love flying Delta and this was my worst experience yet."
Pros: "The staff"
Pros: "Great service throughout. Friendly attendants and easy boarding/deboarding processes. Would fly international with them again in a heart beat."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding. Quick flight"
Cons: "Audio entertainment quite limited"
Pros: "Staff are nice, and helpful"
Cons: "Take far too long, efficiency is extremely poor, missed flight due to luggages being lost, requested vegetarian meal, when booking, confirmed at gate but didn't have me on the list for special meal. ECONOMY class has nooo room for a long flight...and no entertainment only 3 choices for western."
Pros: "Food good, wine OK"
Cons: "Discomfort bad"
Pros: "Space looked a bit cramped in business class but I was pleasantly surprised at the length of the flat bed and the additional foot well space once I'd reclined the seat."
Cons: "Need to fix the flickering lights in the JFK club lounge, the opposite of relaxing!"
Cons: "Price to get a little more space"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful."
Cons: "Food was terrible and check in can be more organized."
Pros: "I booked via Kayak using Virgin Atlantic shared out to Delta. Check was confusing as both airlines used different flight numbers. When I went to check in with Virgin Atlantic they told me to go to Delta. When I went to Delta they told me to go back to Virgin Atlantic. I wound up checking in with Virgin Atlantic. Everyone was very polite but check in was confusing. Everything else was wonderful. Cutomer service was great from beginning to end."
Cons: "Check in."
Pros: "More seat room than expected for economy tickets. Good service, on time, polite staff"
Cons: "Duty free purchases not waiting for us at boarding like usual. Audio selection on entertainment was v poor"
Pros: "Delta has a pretty good entertainment system. Lots of movies to watch and the system works well."
Cons: "Seats are very tight and uncomfortable. The food was horrible. Tasted like a $1 frozen meal that was microwaved til mushy. It was chicken but I couldn't tell you more. And flight attendant helpfully described it as 'chicken'. Breakfast was a cold roll, a piece of cheese and some awful yogurt. This was the most unbearable 8.5 hours of my life."
Pros: "Crew were good, flight on time, free drinks"
Pros: "Thomas our steward was excellent."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Not anything"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the food selection was surprising delicious. The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "The leg room was much less than the last time I flew Virgin (booked via Delta) and made for an uncomfortable trip. Could not sleep as a result. If you're tall like me you'll need to book a higher seating category."
Pros: "Everything that British Airways tried to do to help us when Delta didn't want to take ownership for their screwups!"
Cons: "Not only did we miss our Delta connection but when Delta rebooked us on a British Airways flight they refused to help when British Airways could not access our tickets. they kept saying since it was Virigin Atlantic who we originally booked through that VA woulkd have to fix it, even thought Delta was the actual carrier and the ones that did the rebooking onto the British Airways flight"
Pros: "My Delta flight was a code share with Virgin Atlantic. A pleasant flight overall with my first impression being an airline with current popular music playing in the background and flight attendants cheerful. Since I was traveling alone, I opted to not purchase my seat prior to my flight date, instead I chose my aisle seat within 24 hours for free. I checked in my one bag and found out I had pre-checked so my security check went so smooth at the new terminal 2 at LAX. Looking forward to my flight back on June 15."
Cons: "Had a toddler behind me crying and screaming the last 40 minutes of landing into Heathrow because she couldn't sit on her mother's lap and made it quite unbareable for all of us in the vicinity. Wondering if there was an alternative way to handle the situation."
Pros: "Everything was just right"
Pros: "On my ticket it clearly indicate that I am entitled to 2 check in baggage. Delta completely refused to honor this. They said am only entitled 1 piece, and therefore I have to pay for the other luggage. I was forced to borough money from someone at the airport just so that I could board the flight."
Cons: "I am asking that my money be refunded. And next time delta should honor and respect agreements. And be more professional"
Pros: "The amount of movies to watch"
Cons: "Seating not enough room, couldn't use the overhead lights for 7 1/2 hour flight. Ridiculous."
Pros: "Everything was excellent."
Cons: "Cant get used to cookies and drink service on long haul flight. Do not care for salable food choices so packed a sandwich."
Cons: "The food was supposed to be hot chicken was served cold"
Pros: "Online check in was very good. Liked the ability to select free seats ahead of 24hr window. Liked being air side for the whole trip Detroit airport Terminal A was good. Free WiFi 50mb + awesome. Crew were friendly and efficient Will do this trip again."
Cons: "Seat always seem uncomfortable after 3hrs anywhere! And more leg room would always help. Food was OK liked the choice of 3 meals difficult to do quality food for 200+ but keep trying to improve"
Cons: "It was Delta not Virgin"
Pros: "The in-flight service was extremely good."
Cons: "The seat was slightly too short for me. If Delta provided a soft mattress cover, slimiler to that of Virgin Atlantic, then the flat bed would be far more comfortable."
Pros: "The crew were wonderful, efficient, and professional."
Cons: "On this Delta flight operated by Virgin Atlantic one of us was unable to check in or change our seats. You think you are getting Delta but everything must be done through VA. VA bag weights are less than Delta and the seat was incredibly cramped. We both had to sit with our legs bowed to the side as the seat ahead was so close. For nine hours we were cramped and could not sleep due to only be able to squeeze into one position. To get into the seat I put on leg in and then sat on the armrest and then brought my other leg up and then lowered my but into the seat. I am not even 6 feet tall and had this issue. So due to the difficult online check-in and seat selection and to the cramped seats we will never fly Virgin Atlantic again."
Pros: "Yes, Very good"
Cons: "I had paid for an upgrade to sit in the front of the cabin with extra legroom (row 14A). When I boarded a man sat it my seat. He had not paid for the upgrade, but the crew let him stay in my seat. I had asked him to social distance but he continued to sit right behind me bo matter which seat I moved to. He argued with the crew until they gave up and let him stay. They did not check his boarding pass or ask him to move to his assigned seat I found a different seat away from him but I don’t see the point in paying for extra legroom when the crew let’s people who haven’t paid for it sit it those seats. I felt harassed by the man and was very uncomfortable the whole flight. I am considering my next step, I think I should at least receive a refund for the upgrade I paid for."
Cons: "Free wifi"
Cons: "Very nice crew and great food"
Pros: "Very friendly and responsive crew. Announcements from the Capitan and chief of flight attendants are very informative and comforting. Seat positions: very good leg room (even in economy)!"
Cons: "Newer airplane, as 747s are kind of outdated now, especially for long distance flights. But overall had good experience with KLM"
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: "KLM are our airline of choice. A great full-service carrier with impecable standards."
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Ran out of business class meal. Substituted a Econ class."
Pros: "The pilot and the crews were helpful about the transit. Pilot make up a lot of time."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, had to run to my next connection flight."
Pros: "Great airline"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Baggage checkin & flight boarding was slow & disorganized."
Pros: "Seats super comfy. Ended up with 3 seats to myself that formed a bed for the lap Uk to NZ. Very nice!"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Can’t think of anything"
Pros: "Seat was good"
Cons: "Depart on time (1 hour late), hostess put a laptop in the overhead, which fell out and hit me when the bin was opened"
Cons: "We were told they were holding our flight, we ran 3 terminals and they’d already left."
Pros: "The earphones for out two seats only worked intermittently, but the Purser, Lee-Ann handled it professionally and pleasantly. That was the only disappointment in an otherwise pleasant flight"
Cons: "The earphones could have worked!"
Pros: "Friendly staff, great service on board. Way better value and service compared to the tacky Irish competition flying the route. Delta all the way"
Cons: "My suitcase didn't come with the airline."
Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."
Pros: "Friendly hostesses"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours"
Pros: "Shirt flight but well catered, boarding was efficient and quick."
Cons: "Not lots of legroom but adequate for an hour long hop. It was cold on board and also had to board via steps from outside"
Pros: "She was cheerful and genuine. I have dietary restrictions but was unable to preorder a meal. She went out of her way to find an available meal for me. I also saw her bring other passengers extra snacks and drinks."
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Cons: "They have mabaged to lost my luggage"
Pros: "Fabulous trip with friendly, helpful staff"
Pros: "On both of my flights to New York City, I was amazed at how friendly and helpful the flight attendants were to the passengers. On my short flight from Basel to Amsterdam, a young French speaking girl was concerned about how to manage getting to her next gate. The flight attendants talked to her and arranged for someone to take her there. On my longer flight from Amsterdam to New York City, there was a customer who was in distress about missing a previous flight and not making it to her connecting flight in New York. One of the flight attendants reassured her until she stopped crying and calmed down. That same flight attendant was always so positive and cheerful in all she did. The rest of the crew was top notch. This was my best experience flying in such a long time. Well done, KLM crews of flights 1984 and 0645 on July 10!"
Cons: "Bag was lost"
Pros: "Clean airplane, friendly crew, no rush, nice snacks for a short one hour flight. Just generally a positive experience."
Pros: "Very little if any."
Cons: "Aircraft was not very clean,the staff seamed quite harsh at times when speaking to customers. The food was really quite poor but it was a short flight to be honest. Overall not as pleasant as the China Southern flights. I would not like to choose them again unless i had to."
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."
Cons: "OLD OLD plane with hard seats and tiny screens"
Pros: "Arriving more or less on time"
Cons: "Crew is awful. Disrespectful desinterested in customers find themselves very important. No service mentality whatsoever. No respectful airline would hire such arrogant self centered personalities in a service role"
Cons: "Long stop over at Schiphol. Too Long!!!!"
Pros: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes initially then a further 20 making it an hour late. Sitting at the gate there was then suddenly a last call to board the flight and a mad rush for everyone to get on. I appreciate that delays happen but the lack of communication ragardinh altered boarding times didn't make the situation any easier"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "The staff were friendly and all smiles. Seats were comfortable and we had a quick, smooth flight from Edinburgh to Amsterdam. The breakfast supplied was an egg and mayonnaise sandwich plus a drink, which seemed about right and very Dutch in character."
Cons: "It was rainy and necessary to walk outside to access the plane; the staff should give their customers a heads-up so that jackets can be donned. Additionally, the check-in queue seemed rather sluggish."
Pros: "Staff superb. They even surprised us with an exit row and a gift for my partners birthday! Amazing. Samantha and Dennis also took time to come and personally wish him a happy birthday. A lovely touch. This airline runs like clockwork. They are just great. The sandwich and stoop waffle are nice too."
Cons: "There is a bus to the plane, so that takes a bit of extra time but they are very well organized."
Pros: "Flight was efficient enough and staff were friendly."
Cons: "It was delayed quite a bit and more on-time updates would have been appeciated."
Pros: "Free wee cake."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Pros: "Professional, friendly service. Punctual, safe flight. Comfortable, spotless airplane."
Cons: "What is there not to like about KLM? I cannot find anything."
Pros: "Short, comfortable flight. Nothing special. Got us where we needed to be without incident."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet the min. characters."
Pros: "Short layover connecting from US flight and luggage transferred ok to destination. Food option not great but at least they didn't charge for it unlike some other airlines. No entertainment but to be expected on such a short flight."
Pros: "Flight crew on flight from Amsterdam to Cape Town were probably the most friendly and enthusiastic I've experienced and no, they were not all young. The plane was spotless throughout the flight. They were always coming around with water and juice and they genuinely seemed to care about all the passengers. The Flight back crew were just the opposite. More like the old lazy farts you get on the American carriers or BA or QF long haul. Whoo have been there for the long haul and should have stopped ages ago."
Cons: "The Entertainment images on the screens promoted Beauty and the Beast, Batman Lego movie but neither were on the system! Food quality was rubbish"
Cons: "Did not get the luggage from connecting flight from Amsterdan to Basel"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and accomodating, plane was clean and boarding amd disembarking was efficiently handled."
Cons: "55 minute delay was not welcome."
Pros: "leg room economy compared to KLM"
Cons: "full flight, no upgrade possible"
Pros: "We really liked the KLM people, from the check in crew to the flight attendants."
Pros: "Having exit aisle made a huge difference in comfort Crew were EXCELLENT"
Cons: "Food was not very good Tasteless and rubbery"
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: "Flight was delayed 4 hours. was not able to make connecting flight in Amsterdam. No flights from Amsterdam to final destination in the US. Lost one full day. Had to stay overnight. What a cluster mess. Will never fly with KLM airlines and would not recommend. Will spend a little extra money and fly on other airlines......very poor, disorganized, and horrendous flight experience. Buyer beware."
Pros: "Flight was delayed by over three hours."
"The plane was a bit dated and there isn’t much legroom."
"Did not see any way to order a vegan meal during the ticket purchase or checkin process. There were no vegan meal options offered on the plane making the trip a long hungry one. Other than that, the crew was very good and the flight was very smooth and on time."
"My flight was cancelled and I wasn’t even notified!!! Horrible service!"
"We get late flying from JFJ and we missed the conection in London."
Pros: "The flight wasn't crowded so I had a whole row of seats to myself."
Cons: "A less starchy/high carbohydrate meal. More green veg."
Cons: "Wasted 24+ hours and a bunch of money. The employees at Dallas did not stop me from boarding an international flight. When landing in London, they immediately turned me around stating, "You can't go on holiday". Cool, thanks. So 12 hours later, im sitting back in Dallas with a whole lot less planned. Thanks DFW! You the best."
Pros: "Food was tasty and plenty. Crew was attentive and professional. Even with a 20 minute delay for take off, we arrived on time."
Cons: "The leg room and seat width seem to be less than other planes. The monitor was very touchy and hard to make it respond"
Pros: "The crew was great, comfortable"
Cons: "I was on a long business trip heading back from India. The flight was delayed leaving India which would have made me miss my connection in London to Phx. Fortunately the flight from London to Phx was delayed (because it was delayed arriving into London) and I was able to make my connection. Especially when we had to take a bus from the plane to the terminal, there is no way I would have made my connection. While I know there are reasons for the delays, it is frustrating. After a long week of traveling and 21 hours of flying- ones patience does run out."
Pros: "Getting off. Entertainment system."
Cons: "The food. Working toilets. 10 abreast seating is too tight on 777. Avoid."
Cons: "Seats and screens, usb charging points"
Pros: "Good seat"
Cons: "Headset didn't work and no replacement"
Pros: "The crew skipped me for breakfast and i had to ask for food."
Cons: "The food was not very good. Bread rolls stale and inedible. The rest of the flight was good."
Pros: "The crew at the check in counter were very help and just outright awesome. Having missed my flight they were kind enough to find a seat for me on another flight. So I say Weldone to them"
Cons: "As I am tall the seats especially the middle seat was a nightmare espcially when people pullback their seats back. need more space to stretch your legs on long flights"
Cons: "Never got on the flight!! This was a Christmas gift & they took the money when booked it and told me they needed credit card verification 2hrs before departure! Terms and conditions doesn’t say I needed the credit card when checking-in! They also NEVER notified us that I was needing that information! The person who booked my flight is overseas!!! They are the worst at customer service. Still waiting to hear back from them! It’s the holidays and they are absolutely careless! I must add that when checking-in the agent was rude, unprofessional and even mocked me! ridiculous!"
Cons: "Pd for seat upgrade so I could have leg room as I injured piriformis. Gate agent wanted to seat 2 people together so took away my chosen seat. I explained but she lied and said person was in wheelchair. Got on board and took photos of young woman seated - not in wheelchair and was up walking. Agent lied and was nasty. Ruined entire trip as I was not able to move much or stretch my injured leg. Am still in pain as I type this review. Complained to AA. Agent was so nasty! Should not be allowed to work with passengers. Fire her!"
Pros: "Boarding from Dallas was very good but when landed in London there was no service provided to me as I requested. I asked for wheelchair and help claiming my luggage due to health problem but when I asked at the airplan gate if some body will help me the answer was wait over there with a rude way and ended by walking to the passport area and claiming my bags by my self, my bags was not there and I was going back and forth to follow directions been given to find my luggage. I was very exhausted and tired and asked people around me for help."
Cons: "There was no help at all especially from the British airway. Unlikely there was very rude answer by telling me if you need help you can hire somebody to help you at claiming bags area. This answer was not expected at all and I was very disoppointed as I made a request to have a wheelchair from London. This request was ignored in London. I was very tired and placed my self to a risk of injury because I hade recent surgery to my right shoulder. As a British air way and this was my first experience I will think carefully next time to use this service again. One of my luggage was damaged and this bag was new and this was my first time to use it they told me at customer service this just a scratch and there is no liability for this kind of damage. hopefully some body can investigate this and do something"
Pros: "Veggie Asian meal was great - curry."
Cons: "Freezing cold air conditioning. Seven hours siting in a fridge. Asked stewardess to turn it up. She didn't."
Pros: "The lady at the counter before we boarded switched our seats for us so our tickets could be together."
Cons: "The seats we had were exit seats right next to the bathroom and it was a night time flight. So 8 hours overnight of constant commotion and people walking by. The flight attendants were blatantly rude and would sit right in front of us and openly talk badly about the passengers. One of the flight attendants walked by and literally just grabbed my drink out of my hand and took it. There was only one flight attendant who was actually pleasant and polite to everyone and her name was Kate. The other flight attendants were just rude and abrasive to everyone and basically would mock people who did not speak English as their primary language. We were both treated okay but I was truly appalled with the way they spoke to some of the other passengers."
Pros: "I needed special assistance due to limit of mobility and I have been refused assistance twice"
Cons: "On the top of that my luggage was damaged"
Pros: "The help on getting on the plane and the pleasant staff on the flight"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Smooth flight, got in early."
Cons: "Breakfast was average. Could do better"
Pros: "Moved seats together, great plane and serviceN"
Cons: "Delay getting landing slot"
Pros: "An airplane is an airplane. Yes, they can be uncomfortable, but the cabin crew will really make or break a long flight. The crew on this flight was fantastic."
Cons: "Delaaayyyyyed due to a broken latch on the main cabin door. Scary."
Pros: "Easy checking with great Customer Care. Made my trip enjoyable. Will use again in July..."
Cons: "The in flight crew did not even attend the passenger properly or even did not satisfy the passengers with food what they supposed to deserve. I ultimately rate it poor airways and wish not to travel with BA."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine"
Cons: "I bought the tickets together, but was informed at the ticket counter that i had only purchased tickets—not boarding passes. Boarding passes needed to be purchased by paying extra if my husband and I wanted to sit next to each other. I tried calling the customer service line through kayak and waited on hold for a long time with no indication of wait time. When the gate agent arrived, we asked and were moved to seats next to each other right away. The ticket agent at initial check in was very abrasive and non-solution oriented. if what she was saying was true— that we only paid for tickets and had to pay extra for boarding passes together— that was never made clear during the booking process. It’s unlikely I’ll use kayak again unless I know for sure what I’m buying."
Cons: "I chose a package on the cheap flights that has a left hand side for choosing number of baggage which invariably inreases fare depending on the number of baggage and i choose 2 and paid for 2 baggage but the ticket came with 1 baggage and i contacted both by phone call, email and your website but did not get any fsvourable response. Had to pay again at the airport for the extra bag. This is highly unfair."
Pros: "Price, new plane, interactive system"
Pros: "The entertainment was good. Lots of choices. Food was about what I would expect for airline food."
Cons: "The seats were terrible. I don't know what it was about them, but I've never had a more uncomfortable flight. My husband had leg cramps for much of the flight and couldn't get comfortable. The rest of the flight was fine, but the uncomfortable seats were a huge minus. We'll probably try to avoid 787s from now on. The window-darkening system was annoying. They darkened the windows when it was dark outside and they darkened the cabin, so we couldn't look out the window. It was dark outside--why the need to darken the windows?? My husband requests window seats so he can look out the window."
Pros: "British Airway, as their partner, made everything perfect."
Cons: "Iberia never picks up the phone. American Airlines always says 'No' first, & sticks with their 'No' for about an hour before being willing to think of work 'round solutions. AA online check-in didn't work, There's always a 45+ minute wait by phone to get AA to answer.. Then the customer service line of Airlines @ LAX had 70+ people needing help, but only one person working. So it was an hour long wait, only to be told 'No' you can't fly. Yet once I walked over to British Airways, they found a way to get me to my destination. Airlines just does not have enough employees and doesn't care."
Cons: "I've flown a lot, and I really couldn't believe how rude the flight attendants were on this flight. They seemed very inconvenienced by their job. I gave a snack pack back to a FA bc of my allergies and she snatched it out of my hand while walking by me without even looking at me...my husband's jaw dropped, he saw it too. It was unbelievable how rude they were."
Pros: "I gate checked in the stroller at LAX. When it was pretty much dumped in front of me at LHR with an unspecified apology, the sun hood was bent so it doesn't fold right anymore, there's scuff marks on the side, there's a part missing from the left wheel and it drags to one side now. Not happy. If I'd been told, we'll take this off you and damage it, I might have checked it normally. Our car seat was fine."
Cons: "Damaging our stroller. Food wasn't good either. A yogurt with various toppings apparently is a "Continental breakfast"."
Pros: "Was on time"
Pros: "Excellent friendly crew, was able to get rest on an overnight flight with my wife, good selection of movies."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "It was very cold, even with my vent closed and wearing a sweater. The food did not taste very good. One of the flight attendants (middle aged Caucasian male) was rude with an overall dismissive demeanor. For example, I requested water and he handed me a cup of warm water while giving everyone else around me a cup of ice with their beverage without being asked."
Pros: "Entertainment system in Economy is really good, big screens and also plug point and usb points for charging."
Cons: "Aisle is cramped so that you get nudged when trolley is being carted up and down. Food was pretty rubbish most of mine went to the bin (this is a terrible waste, rather not get served this and bring my own on board)."
Cons: "We boarded on time but were kept waiting 2 hours on the runway The entertainment system was broken so no screens worked the whole flight! Terrible,"
Cons: "Airline refused to honor ticket purchased through vayama. Kayak. American seems to be in some kind of work slowdown and they tried to make as many people as possible miss their flights. It was awful. I will never fly american again. Awful."
Pros: "Short flight times, lovely staff , food and wine ok, not so crowded so more space"
Pros: "Eventually we made it"
Cons: "Plane was delayed because a door wasn't working (old). Business class entertainment was a tablet that was collected an hour before we landed. Food was very bland."
Pros: "•Boarding was easy - small plane. •No crazy flight maneuvers, so I guess good pilots"
Cons: "•Cash only for drinks?! C'mon AA, it's 2017. •Charging for checked bags is greedy, I don't care if others do it, that's not a good excuse + Southwest doesn't charge. •Plane left 30 min late (and arrived 30 late), then had to sit on Tarmac waiting for a gate. •Placed us at the farthest bagged claim from our arrival gate (all bagge claims walking up to ours were empty), so thanks for thinking of the customer first there. •I reserved an aisle seat, they changed me to window without asking. Thanks. •Overall, there are too many other choices in airlines... I may just be one customer, but this is one less they'll have, as other major carriers haven't ever racked up this amount of annoyances in a single trip with me before."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and kept to schedule."
Cons: "AA staff at JFK airport were rude and unhelpful. Staff onboard the flight were excellent."
Pros: "The "very" new 777-200 was very comfortable, well-laid out. I usually skip or leave half of the in-flight food served, but this rates as one of the best meals, I've had in an airplane outside of business class. The in-flight entertainment/information service was decent, but perhaps because the plane was still in new condition."
Cons: "On this entire business trip, I booked with other companies, but ended up 5 flights operated by American Airlines. One cancellation, 4 delayed, 3 late arrivals. The last one was the most annoying. I will be avoiding AA in the future. The domestic crews are generally brusque and miserable. The international flight crews were more accommodating and pleasant, but most of them also seemed annoyed at passenger presence. Also, having to pay for a preferred seat on a half-empty airplane is simply unfair. By 24hrs before the flight, AA must have known there were plenty of empty seats."
Pros: "Boarding the plane from the back first saved longer queues. Unfortunately people cheat and the boarding officers don't send them back to the right queue. Toilets were clean. Staff excellent. I was glad all my flights were stuffed to the gunnels. Presumably that is best for the environment rather than lots of planes with fewer passengers in each."
Cons: "Passport control with new computer ID checks was fast. Baggage was slow coming. I booked through Netflights and they didn't book me a good seat. If I could have changed it myself they should have told me. On the way to Tampa on 3rd March I couldn't check in within 24 hours and had to wait half an hour while they changed our plane. BA used to do short science programmes which I loved. Shame these have finished."
Pros: "Flight attendant, Billy, on flight to Chicago encouraged everyone to help each other figure out how to manage close connection times due to a long delay leaving Charlottesville. He then arranged for folks with short times to move forward. We would never have made our connection without him. Gate agents also kept the door open for us as we dashed to our connecting flight and hustled us on board. Amazingly the ground crew also got our luggage transferred in the short 10 minutes we had. Thank you American!"
Pros: "Fantastic customer service - from lounge to arrival gate. Unlike BA this airline does recognize its frequent flyers and upgrades us often to business. I fly a lot - Executive Platinum - and this makes a huge difference."
Cons: "My connecting flight LHR to AMS was on BA and they really droped the ball compared to AA."
Pros: "I was in a seat in coach that was appalling. (28C?), one row behind the exit row seating. I am only 5' 8" but could not cross my legs. The guy to my left was KNITTING, so was constantly jogging my arm which I carefully had kept inside the armrest on my side. I will avoid flying in a BA 747 in future. Even Business is awful on those jets. I flew in Business once, and thought the head to tail layout was the worst I have experienced. I pulled down the joint divider and thought the person in the next bed was dead, he was lying there with his arms crossed over his chest! It's time to update the 747's or retire them."
Cons: "The pathetic little 4.5" times 3.5" screen in the seatback was a joke in today's environment."
Pros: "The flight arrived on time with my luggage, and although I booked through BA, for the first time ever, they managaged to get my special meal request correct."
Cons: "I order a vegetarian meal in the hope I will get something edible. This was the worst airline food I have ever had. The plane was old so the economy class seats were larger than normal. There was, however, no in-seat entertainment. On the upside, I'm glad I didn't fly business class. Compared to the standard set by other airlines, the seats appeared to be from the 80's."
Pros: "Crew friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Flatbed width tight"
Pros: "Good flight, but pretty jammed in."
Cons: "Coach seats were definitely not comfortable"
Pros: "Very nice crew"
Pros: "Boarding was on time and ran smoothly. In flight crew was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "We did not have dinner as we tried to get some sleep on this 6.5 hour overnight flight to London. The 767 was in a 2-3-2 configuration for economy plus and general economy. Thankfully they kept the temps cool to the point where we used our coats as additional blankets. I appreciated that the FA’s did not wake us for dinner and they closed my window shade at some point. They were 100% polite and helpful. That said, with the new Polaris Business Sears, UAL has eliminated the restrooms between Business and Economy. So it is a very long walk to the restrooms from Econ Plus and it appears that there are only 4 restrooms for about 120 passengers. Absurd. My family made do because we used the restrooms in the middle of the night when most people were sleeping but this would have been a nightmare after breakfast or with a small child. It appears that UAL has gone for profit over customer satisfaction."
Cons: "The queues at immigration in San Francisco were disgracefully long. it took us 3 hrs to get to our luggage. Advice to US govt to employ more immigration officers. Airlines should report on this"
Pros: "Leg room and entertainment current."
Cons: "Seats to recline further."
Pros: "Boarding Announcements Clean"
Cons: "Very cold Bathroom in back of plane"
Pros: "Getting a meal and drink"
Cons: "You need to spell out that when you purchase a BASIC ECONOMY fair, you will be charged for luggage and cannot change your seat. This isn't all spelled out in big bold letters when you buy on Kayak and the carrier treats you bottom of the class."
Pros: "Request for supply of earplugs was kindly met. Cabin crew were attentive and friendly. Food was some of the best I have ever eaten in Economy."
Cons: "Check-in staff at EWR were abrupt to the point of rudeness. Did not feel valued as a customer."
Pros: "lots of movies, surprisingly comfortable seat, awesome crew"
Cons: "all the on board meals had gluten :("
Pros: "The flight attendant in our section was amazing. She gave us tips for London and gave us some complimentary alcoholic drinks. She made the flight so much more enjoyable."
Cons: "The seat comfort was just ok. Neither my husband or I was able to get much sleep. The seats in coach are very tight and we couldn't really get comfortable."
Cons: "Movie selection wasn't very good, and the touch screens aren't sensitive enough, so I could feel the person behind me poking the screen really hard to make selections."
Pros: "Great price — easy flight. Had an entire row to myself, so I could stretch out."
Cons: "Food could of had a better selection but wasn’t the worst I’ve had"
Pros: "Flight was nice and empty"
Pros: "IT WAS UNEVENTFUL WHICH IS WHAT YOU WANT. CREW WAS VERY NICE AND NO CRYING YOUNGSTERS."
Pros: "1. Super friendly crew 2. Plenty of space in Economy Plus seats"
Cons: "1. Very average food 2. Continuous problems with the entertainment system during the whole flight"
Pros: "The plane was new"
Cons: "Flight was switched to United airlines so the confirmation number did not work and we could not check in on line. Food was the worst I have had on a flight."
Pros: "The controlled and orderly way when boarding."
Cons: "The staff from the desk was unfriendly. On boarding no one showed you where your seat is located. The food was dreadful. The same aweful pasta meal on the outbound journey was served again. During the flight I was feeling very unwell I asked the flight attendant our axeick bag which she brought, but I was told to go to the toilet. She did not return to enquire after my well being. I was in the toilet for 5 minutes. Very uncaring. The tea was cold when served"
Pros: "The crew were competent, friendly and helpful. The back of seat entertainment was very good, with a lot of new releases. When the flight was delayed the pilot did come around and speak to passengers, which I appreciated."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and we were not given any information about what was going on."
Cons: "Not much choice of good movies"
Pros: "TV and movie choices should be according to 2018 instead of1980. Also TV should be from running Era"
Cons: "board . The door was closed & we waited for 2 economy passengers - took an hour . mY experience - once the door is closed , it does not open until the plane reaches the destination ."
Cons: "Lufthansa as an agent is a mistake! I had to deal with them prior to flying to the US. I have never ever had to deal with such bad service in my entire life. United was great though and I highly recommend them."
Pros: "Despite sitting in the middle seat and being well over 6 feet, there was room."
Pros: "Decent flight, can’t complain, pretty much empty."
Cons: "laberithine process to get my boarding pass. Booked on Kayak with last minute on a Luthanasa flight operated by United. Basically had to call all three in order to get my boarding passes as the website didn’t work. Really confusing."
Pros: "Captain and crew were brilliant, kept passengers informed throughout as to the delays, as a result all passengers were patient and understanding. Not much more could have been done to improve the experience as the snow and conditions at Dublin airport were out of their hands."
Pros: "Entertainment and leg room brilliant!"
Cons: "Good was disgusting"
Pros: "Very nice people working and good service."
Pros: "The flight attendant was nice and helpful."
Cons: "There was not much legroom. Especially when the person in front of you reclines. The menu stated they had craft beers. They did not. The Entertainment system is very old. My iPhone 7 has a larger and better quality screen. Not to mention it is based on channels like a TV so when you turn the channel it changes the already playing channels. At least Delta has large touch screens so you can choose what you want to watch and watch it from the beginning. The flight was late and one of our bags did not make it on the flight. We were happy it was on the next flight."
Cons: "Delayed for so long! 5 hrs"
Pros: "Getting back to the UK"
Cons: "When booking with Lufthansa I don't then expect to be on a united airlines flight Terrible customer service and substandard old uncomfortable aircraft"
Pros: "Clean aircraft good entertainment, cockpit crew polite"
Cons: "The check in staff were unbelievably rude nearly looked and were abrupt and dismissive to a simple question. The cabin crew looked scruffy, and clearly had a lack of pride in their job and presentation. This is the first time I have ever flown United and I must say I would avoid flying with them again if possible, which is a shame and the aircraft and the entertainment on board were good"
Pros: "Pleased with all"
Pros: "The check in was good. The craft was clean."
Pros: "My television screen in front did not work. There were no images and the sound was very bad. So I could not listen to music either."
Cons: "The airline was generous with luggage allowances."
Pros: "Improve the food and be ahead of the best"
Pros: "Again could not fault staff and quality of flight services, luckily space to sleep so fantastic flight."
Pros: "Brisk, efficient cabin crew served food and drink quickly then left us alone to sleep."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 75 minutes "awaiting plane". 20 minute wait when finally arrived at Heathrow for steps down to bus to take us to terminal."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The staff had no meal for me despite me having ordered one. The entertainment system wasn't working and neither was the wifi to allow you to watch on your own device. Old planes with uncomfortable seats. Really poor airline."
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Food quality could be improved upon (less sugar and carbs, more fresh vegetables/fruits)"
Pros: "Crew were amazing, so friendly and helpful Entertainment system was so so good Landed early"
Cons: "Overnight wasn't the easiest flight in the seats Serving people coffee when others are probably trying to sleep probably wasn't the wisest idea either Pre flight queue system is just baffling"
Cons: "Was surprised to receive dinner and wished they had not served so we could have more quiet time."
Pros: "It got us from a to b but not much more to be said!"
Cons: "The idea of the entertainment system broadcast to your hand held device is fine - it didn't work for me though."
Cons: "Incorrect flight info . there was no lufthansa airplane it was a united flight 4 terminals away so i wasted my time n money n missed the flight. Nowhere did the reservation state the correct flight number and l the link went to ufthansa site yet couldnt check into a non existant flight. Kayak sucks. Not the airline"
Pros: "Efficient boarding. Friendly and helpful crew. Prompt baggage reclaim at Heathrow."
Cons: "Bland food, with no beef option in Business. And what happened to the ice cream sundaes? They've been thrown over for salted caramel gelato. Not nearly as good. The old three-class 767s are TERRIBLE for comfort in Business Class."
Pros: "Missing my connection due a security in Newark the plan was 2 h delay"
Cons: "I upgrade to premium economy. This gave me a seat with legroom -but one that did NOT RECLINE ... on a night flight. I am very unhappy. It was not made clear when I upgraded (must have been very small print). I feel ripped off"
