Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was wonderful. Food and drinks was good."
Cons: "More movies in Russian language, or with English subtitles"
Pros: "Got to ride on a Boeing 747 Intercontinental!"
Cons: "It’s hard to give a good review when the first of three flights is an hour late. Made me and my wife run through Frankfurt airport to make my connection. Only made it by 2 minutes. Frankfurt security was super slow and no one cares."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable. Looked new."
Pros: "The crew was professional. The process of sharing information about gate changes was very well organized."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable. Seat pockets were torn and poorly designed. Electrical connections were not working. Choice of entertainment is limited. Food choice ran out before service came to the end of the plane."
Pros: "Even though it was economy class, I was able to sleep because it was very comfortable."
Cons: "Not sure, I slept the whole flight."
Pros: "More leg room"
Cons: "Leg room and bigger seats"
Pros: "Everything about the flight was perfect."
Cons: "Cannot get Lufthansa to issue miles for the flight, or for my Star Alliance flights on Swiss and United. Frankfort terminal transfer distance is very far, and too far if your flight transfer is less than 55 minutes!"
Cons: "I checked bags asking “is the baggage delivery fast at Frankfurt”. “Much taste than Edinburgh” was the reply (Edinburgh is reeeeaaaaallllly slow). Sadly Frankfurt too is slow."
Pros: "Staff were very nice. Flight arrived on time."
Cons: "App or website didn’t work for check in. Lines at the airport were very long. The flight was over booked so I didn’t get a seat until at the gate. Overall too much hassle. Food options in the plane were horrible for vegans/allergies"
Cons: "Flight late"
Pros: "Movie selection. Flight attendants very polite and friendly and helpful. Roomy upstairs with room to stretch and stand."
Cons: "Poor wine selection (one red one white) Flight attendants overserved alcohol to passenger in my area to point of slurring and not walking off plane. Food..bread hard and poor."
Cons: "The gate was changed a few times.. very hard if you have connecting flights"
Pros: "The crew onboard the flight was very friendly and accommodating! They did their best with what they had. I also like that there were diabetic and vegetarian meals offered, although the diabetic meals should ideally focus on lower carbohydrate totals. Fruits and breads can pack just as much sugar as sweets."
Cons: "Starting with the boarding area at LAX, there was some really high pitched siren that kept going off over and over which no one seemed to care to investigate or do anything about. It was very irritating, and seemed to put lots of passengers in a bad mood before the plane even started boarding. Then when they announced boarding was beginning, everyone got up and created massed around creating four chaotic lines. It was a mess. We left 45 min late, which caused us to run to make our connecting flight because the person at the gate never told us it was also going to be leaving late. The plane itself was extremely uncomfortable as well. I'm 5'8" tall and that's mostly torso. I fit easily in the back seat of my buddy's mini Cooper, and I could barely fit in the space without my legs hitting the seat in front of me. That was before the guy in front of me put his seat back and made it so I could barely reach under my seat. Then there was the control panel for my personal video monitor. The panel was located on the armrest in just the right spot where Everytime I put my hand down I accidentally pressed a button to call the flight attendant, or turn the video screen on off, which was really obnoxious when I was trying to sleep and kept accidentally turning on the bright screen which woke me up. The video monitors we're also touch compatible, but the screen was horrible about registering finger presses which led to the lady in the seat behind me smashing the screen as hard as she could repeatedly with her finger, which vibrated all the was through my headrest so I could feel it as if she were trying to get my attention. There was also no air flow above the seats... You simply had to rely on the flight attendant to set a temperature that the whole cabin enjoyed, or you had to suffer silently. Finally, the reading lights on the plane we're so high up that turning one on lit up all the seats around you as well, which meant you had to choose to either sit in the dark and not read, or turn on your light and read quietly while the people around you cursed your name while attempting to get some rest."
Pros: "Decent food."
Cons: "No onboard entertainment."
Pros: "Service was excellent. Late night flight was kept dark so we could rest - wonderful dinner menu, surprising for plane food."
Cons: "Flight was delayed so there was a bit of a chaos boarding but it has nothing to do with the service itself."
Pros: "great airport and ease of check in and quickness on boarding flight."

Cons: "Boarding process was the worst I've seen. Seats were too small and no space compared to other flights I've flown on similar routes (British Airways London-Amman & Paris-Amman). No tv's, entertainment system. You could download their system but need to buy wifi to access it. Will try to avoid Lufthansa's short haul flights in the future."
Cons: "I called the airline and paid for a specific ticket so I could have an aisle seat. They confirmed it was an aisle but Inhad 30F which is a window seat! I'll be calling Lufthansa for a refund. p"
Pros: "The plane was clean, the temperature was fine during flight. They fed us dinner almost right after taking off. The staff was attentive and friendly"
Cons: "Almost was late for our flight, because it took us over 1 hour to pass the passport control at the Frankfurt airport. It was terribly organized and understaffed which caused other people to miss their flight. My husband and I ended up running to our gate like mad men and we were the last to board right before they closed the gate. Very stressful and frustrating!!! Other than that the flight was ok. We were surprised that we were served a dinner right after we took off, but the hot entree was bad, so we ended up asking the flight attendant bring us more bread so we filled up on that."

Pros: "The crew was very welcoming and attentive."
Cons: "That the price of the ticket dropped from when I originally purchased it by $500 and when I called for a refund of the difference I was told it could not be done. I also didn't like that we had to pay an additional cost for a seat selection. Selecting seats should be included."
Cons: "The seat that I paid for was taken from me by Lufthansa without explanation or a refund."

Cons: "The seat I was in (37 H) was awful, if felt much more cramped than the flight to Macedonia. I felt like I was crammed into a sardine can. The boarding process in Vienna was a joke; the economy seats were all boarded at once; in effect a mass of humanity all rushing toward the gate."
Pros: "Curious crew."
Pros: "Good entertainment choices."
Cons: "Seat could be more comfortable"
Pros: "It was better with the earache, plane felt cleaner, the crew was more friendly and attentive. Didn't feel as dark as the first flight."
Cons: "The Star Alliance flights aren't that cheap. Comparable price between Lufthansa, Swiss, SAS and Austrian. Lufthansa gives you food, and has friendly service. SAS gives you coffee and tea. On Austrian and Swiss I didn't get anything. For same price range and same alliance, that is a point I keep in mind. Now I mainly try to get onto Lufthansa flights (or Turkish Airlines which is my favorite). Even on Aegean, I got better food, and the magazine was better, plus there were some monitors to track the flight. Austrian feels cheaper than the others. That is the main point I didn't like."
Cons: "It was pretty cold on the plane, Entertainment , was not current on the movies selection."
Cons: "They overbooked the flight which delayed boarding but the flight was on time."
Cons: "We are late only 25 min (50% of flight - 50 min)"

Pros: "it was mess, so I cant say positive thing"
Cons: "Well, it was all messed up by kayak and priceline. I clearly stated in your search engine I want flight with checked baggage, for which you gave me results. What a unpleasant surprise at check-in to find out it was super expensive airticket with only 8 kg of carry on! You are confusing people on purpose, I cant believe your service! And I was loyal customer for years and years. Well, time for change."
Cons: "Caótica boarding Uncomfortable seats did not recline"
Pros: "Again as in previous flight very efficient professional and pleasant staff ."
Cons: "Seat reservation system didn't work ,reserved one seat and got another.Food portions were smallish .No internet over the Atlantic .While the multimedia service was phenomenal I guess there could have been a larger variety and more episodes would have been good as well ."
Cons: "THey denied me and I lost all tickets including back trips as well. Nobody helped me to change tickets, they just care about money and reselling my tickets to other passengers."
Pros: "Movie selection, crew was very polite"

I inquired about paying to change destination city and or seat to a premium seat (for the 9+ hour flight) when I recvd the reservations for the new flights that were made at the airport around 8am for flights that left at around noon and 3pm. I was told no better seat(s) was available. However, a half hour before the flight was boarded several announcements were made regarding all the upgrades that were available. Liars annoy me."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and fine. No problem with boarding etc"
Cons: "The seat comfort and closeness of the passengers is terrible. And makes for a stressful and painful flight."

Pros: "Like the overall KLM experience"
Cons: "Food could have had better quality and the stewardess served it all at once versus in the various courses."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful. Moved me up front in the plane so I could make my connection."
Cons: "Not having to walk outside in Edinbur4gh to board the flight."
Cons: "We were changed from KLM to Airiltalia without any information sent so only because I tried to check in did I find out the flight on KLM was cancelled and we were changed to Airitalia. The Airitalia flight was very mediocre."

Pros: "Lovely crew, very helpful"
Pros: "Seating is tight. The crew was great !"

Pros: "The attendants took great care of us. Super smooth flight."
Cons: "Boarding was very confusing. There was an area where they were checking people's bags or something near the gate and you didn't know if you needed to stop at it or continue. They didn't collect garbage before landing. Not only did we have to take our bags off the plane, we had to carry our garbage (drink cups/food served) to the front of the plane to throw out."
Pros: "Nice flight, nice crew, and a nice experience."
Pros: "Overall everything was ok."
Cons: "Not that I cared at the time but having been asked for a rating on “entertainment” - there was none. Cheap and cheerful really. No extras over the likes of RyanAir."

Pros: "Everything. A truly faultless experience!"
Pros: "Crew was courteous and polite! Entertainment system had some great movies at no additional cost."
Cons: "Poor communication between delta, KLM and Air France meant that I couldn’t check in online and get a digital boarding pass. Furthermore I couldn’t use the check-in kiosks because my name was listed as Reidmr instead of Reid, which meant that my boarding pass did not match my passport. Overall this caused unnecessary delays that were compounded by the fact that I couldn’t use my TSA precheck. My main problem on the plane was that I had to struggle to get water served to me. It’s always so dry on planes and I would have liked to be able to get more than one tiny glass of water at a time. Also, would have loved a window at my window seat. Plus no WIFI!?"
Pros: "Usual professional and friendly service from my airline of choice for most destinations."
Pros: "Wider seat than most business class"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"
Pros: "Eveything is well arranged"
Pros: "Airline staff good and professional"
Cons: "Nothing one can do, for a 6.2" guy, the metal bar that forms the shape for the pouch for magazines and such digs into knees, ESP if person in front adjusts seat back. Fold out table barely accommodates laptop."
Pros: "The very dirty plane was cleaned at Dar-es-salaam and became less dirty. The pilot kept us updated periodically through the flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "The plane was very dirty when we landed in Dar-es-salaam. The plane did get cleaned a little bit in Dar-es-salaam however I was still missing a pillow and blanket which I had to actively seek out. Seating was not very comfortable as there was a box attached to the leg of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to keep my feet at an uncomfortable angle through the long flight. I did not enjoy the food."
Cons: "Not only was there free food but they tried to sell you a bunch of stuff. Not a moments piece."
Cons: "Flight from Amsterdam was 2 hours late. Caused me to miss connection on train from London to Leeds which then cost me 124 pounds to rebook. No information was forthcoming at all at the airport and there were 3 different departure times given. Absolute chaos. The airline is a joke"
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Flight delayed."
Pros: "Extremely helpful and attentive. The crew volunteered to be on this flight from Madrid in the middle of the Covid pandemic"
Cons: "Best flight I’ve ever had. Need to have this many people on the plane every time"
Pros: "the seating was very uncomfortable i barely had any leg room"
Cons: "Dont go on economy its not good espically fir being the main airline for spain its not really that good compared to other airways for example british airways"
Pros: "Loved the wine hour, location, access to bikes and lovely breakfast buffet! Service was super friendly, too."
Cons: "I hate paying for water but I seem to do this all over town."
Pros: "Fell asleep and didn’t even realise. Finnair is very friendly and the staff are super nice. I was very thirsty and asked for two cups of water instead of one and the lady was not hesitant to give me two cups in quick succession. Very good air company"
Cons: "Nothing really too bad, you get what you expected. May of been nice to have a free sandwich as it’s a non stop flight - this is because Lufthansa has one stopover and offers a free sandwich and drink."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, food was surprisingly good."
Pros: "Finnair cabin/seats, clean, quiet and comfortable airport in Helsinki"
Cons: "Not only the first flight got delayed for over 2 hours. I had to re-book the second - connecting - flight because of that. Now it made my layover instead of 1 h 45 m - 5 hours! Then the second flight got delayed!! So instead of 5 hours layover it was over 7 hours!!! Very inconvenient and upsetting experience. The only reason I booked these particular flights is because they were advertized as "the shortest trip" time on your website..."
Pros: "it was on time"
Cons: "it was a poor food choice again."
Cons: "Horrible complimentary food quality in economy class. Not enough options to purchase food/snack."
Cons: "elayed, bad and rood personal, bad food. I am last time use Finnair."
Cons: "Same as above. Seats very narrow. But enough leg room"
Pros: "Had the head rests that help gold you head when you try to sleep and they didnt speak on the overhead audio so that was awesome"
Cons: "Just long flight in general."
Pros: "Free movies, TV shows, ok seats (but hey, it's a plane), great meals and service, and a pillow, blanket and water for each person. I really enjoyed both flights with Finnair and would gladly pick them again!"
Pros: "good service in spite of rather crammed conditions and short flight, UK newspaper was available, plenty of leg room (biz class consisting of one row in the front:))) - the lucky 4 in that 1st row were the only ones to get food, and also drink for free, it seems... and yes, the flight was short and otherwise uneventful, I was the 1st to walk off the plane."
Cons: "The plane was a tiny oldish commuter jet with 2 seats on each side of the aisle. In "biz class" you still had to rub elbows with your neighbor, something other airlines with newer planes have sorted out, but allowing extra space between seats.... but overall, for a short flight (not much longer than an average subway commute in NYC), it really was not a huge deal...."
Cons: "Layover and delay we're extremely wrong and they booked me on a separate flight from my party."
Pros: "Given the choice I would hands down pick Finnair over a US based carrier the Europeans provide bigger seats and better service... Little things like hot towels, extra wine and chocolate after meals was truly appreciated..."
Cons: "Im an amateur traveler and I could have used a little more info at the gate and about getting to my connection I had no idea where it was and that you had to go through a passport line to catch the connection. Came close to missing my connection..."
Pros: "nonstop to Helsinki was great...I have done this route over 100 times and this was the first time non-stop. When you have 17-19 hours travel time in your head door to door and then it is 12 - you really appreciate the extra time. THANK YOU!"
Pros: "Airplane was nice."
Cons: "I paid $90 for economy comfort for my flight and did not get an economy comfort seat. I am very disappointed with Finnair in this. They will not refund my money at the airport and now I need to go through their home office for a refund. It was bad enough not having any extra leg room on a red eye when you are over 6 feet tall but now I have to jump through hoops to get my money back."
Cons: "Lack of snacks"
Cons: "Nice flight, nice crew"
Pros: "I loved the colors of the flight.light blue and green. Gave a peaceful ambience. The flight attendants were very courteous and smiling. Especially the women flight attendants. The food was excellent. It was interesting that the flight from Helsinki to Chicago served a Indian style dinner comprising of lentils, rice and chickpeas. I liked that too, though I prefer the meditarranean fare. I liked the boarding as they were very strict about families with children and gave them priority before other passengers."
Cons: "I did not find too many indian films which I would have liked, especially in a flight because Indian movies are 3 hours long and help to pass the time quickly :). I would have liked more variety in the Hollywood movies as well. They mostly had much older films and hardly any of the new releases while Emirates flight had lot many more new releases and oscar winning movies. They served the Indian amul cheese which is not worthy of serving on a flight, and they could have served some better cheese."
Cons: "They can't even tell me where the bag is supposed to be."
Pros: "many choices of films to watch was great too! Like that you served Finnish food!"
Pros: "рейсы точно по расписанию, без задержек, персонал внимателный"

Pros: "was on time. Small airport, convenient transit without passport control,"
Cons: "Small flight, longer flying time. Almost no service."
Pros: "The food was surprisingly pretty good"

Cons: "Toilets were gross."
Pros: "Flight was not packed, plenty of overhead space and seamless boarding process getting on. Crew was attentive. Food not bad."
Cons: "Entertainment selection was very poor and I sat there bored. Plane seemed a little old."
Pros: "Friendly service, lots of movies, Marimekko design."
Cons: "Seats too close together front to back. If the person in front of you lies down the back of their seat is in your face."
Pros: "Finnair was tolerable for a 1.5 hours flight. I tried blueberry juice for the first time and quite liked it. There was no food on this flight."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about for the short leg."
Pros: "They waited with connection flight."
Cons: "Looks of people waiting for us. They really hated us. Luggage made it next day. No food on board."
Pros: "Great crew, very helpful and kind. Helped me stow my banjo in a closet instead of under the plane wich really was great because of its value to me...great food and entertainment options made the trip fly by...hah....kinda freaked out by the whole black glove thing but maybe it's sexy, not sure."

Cons: "Can't think of anything I didn't like"
Pros: "Plenty of food to eat. Snacks and lunch"

( The pizza was good the muffin was processed gross. ) I didn't eat all the items and still felt yucky from poor nutrition. A piece of fruit in place of muffin, dessert, crackers would help a lot."
Cons: "I have to use code-shared flight because of the schedule. Otherwise, always try to have pure Finnair flights. Get a better schedule!!!"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work. Special meal was terrible. No toiletry bag for such a long flight. Btw I paid extra for a bad seat."
Pros: "Friendly staff, frequent food, frequent drinks (including wine) included in price of fare."
Cons: "Boarding method. Should board people furthest from the front of coach first to avoid clogging of aisle."
Pros: "Food was good for airplane food."
Cons: "Plane only had screens for the movie in the center aisle and only every five rows or so."
Pros: "AA fly to/from Charlotte and if you are lucky you'll get a local NC crew, southern drawl included. The A330's are nice, even without Prem Economy the seating space is decent on the former USAir metal."
Cons: "The USB charge points do not work. Plus, the touch screens for the IFE require a lot of hard tapping on the screen, annoying for the people in the seat on which back the screen is placed."
Pros: "I was glad that it was a direct flight, and the crew was nice."
Cons: "The seats are too small, and there were two empty rows behind us, but the crew seemed to be using them to sleep and did not allow anyone back there. The monitors were in the aisle, and I could not see it well, and I was never offered any headphones, so I could not watch the in flight entertainment. Overall, the flight was pretty disappointing."
Pros: "could change to extra legroom on the day without extra charge"
Cons: "no individual entertainment console, and only certain seats had power outlets."
Pros: "Good flight, really good new A380 aircraft, smooth nearly all the way, usual small seating space as on All airlines"
Cons: "Routine airline food."
Pros: "Finnair is always a pleasure and Helsinki is an attractive and well-run airport."
Pros: "The plane was not full"
Cons: "I wish it truly were Finnair instead of American: The seat, the legroom, the fact that you have to pay 20% more to have the same rotten seat 12 rows further up front, the food that's barely fit for human consumption, the presence of 20 year old cathode screens that can't be watched but do prevent the cabin being dark, etc."
Cons: "Terribly uncomfortable seats, very dated entertainment options, bland food."
Pros: "Crew politeness"
Cons: "Food is only average and not enough good movies to watch"
Pros: "I loved the flight it was o. Time the flight crew was great"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "Finnair "outsourced" the flight to a Portuguese HiFly. Boarding: flight delayed for more than 1 hour, with passengers sitting all this time in the plane and waiting for all connection flights to arrive. As a result we arrived late for our connection flight. The Finnair people that met the passengers on exit form the plain did not provide any information how we should proceed next. We were left to figure it out by ourselves. Crew: The impression was that all the flight attendants from HiFly were untrained. The did not know what to do an how to do. They seemed lost on the plane. Comfort: Plane seemed to be re-purchased from some Arab airline. Food: bad Entertainment: v system was broken. Information system was showing wrong current time."
Pros: "I was feeling very comfortable, the hospitality was excellent, the flight was great Thanks very much on everyone"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed, flight crew was not very friendly, plane was extremely old and uncomfortable. In flight entertainment was not working for me and many other passengers. Food was very bland and took long to be served. Service and flight in general fell very very short of what I expected."
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!"
"My initial flight was cancelled without any warning. I found it out on the BA website and not on Kayak's. The whole trip was moved 2 days that created some inconveniences."
"London airport it very large, we had to take the train from our terminal to the main hub, then pass the security all over, and take the train to a different terminal."
Pros: "The crew saw I was travelling with my young son; baby and elderly parents. We were placed at the front of the crew and were kind enough to allow me to board first."
Cons: "Most passengers had to put cabin bags into the hold. These were taken at the gate, it would have been nicer to have had this notified by text or when checking in so the bags could have been left at the check in desk."
Pros: "Very good crew who were welcoming and attentive"
Cons: "We were placed at an international gate, had to wait for stairs (for the rear of the plane) and then a bus to the terminal. We arrived early but by the time we had waited for steps, bus etc, we were late!"
Pros: "Premium Economy was very comfortable"
Cons: "Food was delivered in a hurry just after we embarked A bit more relaxed would have been better"
Cons: "All good."
Pros: "Lovely staff"
Pros: "All crews are kind, friendly and excellent services, the handling of missed flight is good."
Cons: "The plane is too old lots of things falling apart, toilet door, tv screen and its remote control ect .."
Cons: "Nonexistent leg room. Made me check my carryon bag but did come to reclaim pretty quickly. Couldn’t even get water without a charge."
Cons: "Mostly good."
Pros: "Good seats at back of plane"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional, food was quite good as far as airlines go, chicken korma not bad at all."
Cons: "The premium economy seats are hard, and you really notice that on a long-haul flight. It was at least spacious and offered a reasonable degree of recline. WiFi was expensive and unreliable."
Cons: "I would have appreciated knowing ahead of time that 1) I was seated at the emergency exit, 2) that as a result, I would not be allowed to have my carry-on at my seat. Communication would have been appreciated."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Planes definitely don't give you much room, but this was a short flight."
Pros: "My first domestic flight with BA for years yet the service imo has got even slicker and better. From check-in to boarding to disembarking and all ahead of schedule, I doubt if I would fly domestically with anyone else."
Pros: "The modern plane and comfortable seats, fast boarding with little queue"
Cons: "The new strange self check in and baggage drop proceedure"
Pros: "Par from below the flight was great as always"
Cons: "CSD was rude and not nice to his fellow staff member in economy. Small delay but not a common thing"
Cons: "We had a carry on and were flying business class. They made us check in the bag but it was clear that it could fit. They said it was a busy flight so we had to give our bag up to check in. We arrived on the plane and there was plenty of space to put our luggage. It was not a friendly experience especially paying the premium to fly business. They were very direct and non forgiving. Crew on board were nice though!"
Cons: "Luggage did not follow me. Still without."
Pros: "Why have they destroyed this once great airline. Better choice of destinations and better prices and similar poor service from the Budget Airlines..Once I return I WILL NOT fly BA ever again."
Cons: "Paying top dollar for the fare and the being asked to pay for the food and drink which was hugely overpriced anyway. They are now an Expensive no-frills budget service airline."
Pros: "They may not always tell you everything, but they seem to think of their passengers first. I was worried about getting my bag out of the overhead bins which ended up three rows ahead of me. I thought I was going to have to exit the plane from the rear since that was how I entered and wondered how I would get my bag. Turns out this was not the case as everyone would exit from the front."
Cons: "Being seated at the rear of the plane. This was not the flight seat I chose and paid for at booking originally. Do not know what happened with that. I needed to make an international connection within an hour and half for boarding and was nearly the last off the plane. Made it just fine, but felt lucky airport seemed not so busy. I am not sure about pre-booking seats being worth it as my way home I did not seem to get any of them."
Pros: "On board entertainment was very good with movies, tv, games, etc. The flight was on-time. The food was good. No hassles regarding paying for a checked bag."
Cons: "Small seating area. Paying extra for advance seat assignments."
Pros: "Good experience."
Cons: "Rude flight crew!"
Pros: "The subject says it all."
Pros: "That the flight was not bumpy and due to bad entertainment I had good views out the window"
Cons: "Tight seating, old airplane, a bit dirty, most info was in Spanish!? Could not hear overhead announcements,"
Pros: "Left and arrived on time! Comfortable aircraft"
Cons: "We had to cancel flight due to Hurricane Irma change of flights from London. BA refused to let us rebook or change flight. Poor poor customer service! I will never fly BA again!!"
Pros: "Food and service was great. Pilot made trip smooth"
Cons: "Boarding at edinburgh was confusing."
Cons: "Long wait in boarding - flight was delayed"
Pros: "I would have liked to have been offered water at least without a charge."
Pros: "I expected a wonderful experience with British Air but unfortunately our flight from Edinburgh was delayed , missed our connecting flight from Heathrow. We were put up in a hotel by BA and arrived st Heathrow to find our replacement BA flight was delayed because of fuel issues. Still sitting and waiting."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The boarding crew from Edinburgh did not allow me to bring my carry on despite it being very light and within size restriction. They said this was because the plane was already full with others' luggage and could not handle my bag for safety. Had to shove my things in a Tesco carrier bag and in my daughters small backpack on wheels. The backpack broke later as it was not made to carry more than a few books. And to top it off, the suitcase I was made to check never made it on my connecting flight to Chicago. I am still waiting for it to be delivered 36 hours later. This suitcase is virtually empty. Well, it's actually carrying a pair of sunglasses and my phone charger. totally inconvenienced and the crew saved the plane from being dangerously overloaded by an empty suitcase. Absolute nonsense."
Cons: "The queuing process was not efficient, the packing of people on a shuttle bus was dangerous with the number of people squashed onto the bus and then we had to wait on the bus for quite a while for the determination to be made that the flight was ready. Once on the flight, the hanging flap that separates the first class from economy, was loosely hanging and rattled fiercely and on lift-off swung back toward our faces. We had to pay 4 pounds for a coke and weird coffee. Then we had to circle London while we waited to land because of the IT mess in London."
Cons: "Had to pay for any food or drink."
Pros: "Going through immigration in Dublin and the flight over behind well managed"
Cons: "Security in Dublin is a bit disorgation going from the U.K. Into the US terminal. I lost my global entry card in the process and not much one could do with that process"
Cons: "We had to be transported by bus both when we boarded in Edinburgh and when we got off the plane at London Gatwick. Of course when we took another plane at Gatwick, we had to take a bus again. Very inefficient process. They actually close the gate 30 min before the flight time, for really. I think it's unnecessarily harsh. Crew were very friendly."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable. Reached 20 mins before time Leg space was ample."
Pros: "It was a short flight, so didn't need much."
Cons: "Charged for food, even water. Boarding pass had one gate, but flight actually boarded from a different gate. No one there to tell us, no announcement. Good thing I checked board. No entertainment system."
Pros: "Clean plane, efficient cabin crew, very slick boarding."
Cons: "Nothing to make it stand out from the other providers(Flybe, Ryanair, easyJet) as all complimentary offerings have disappeared."
Pros: "My mother is disabled and the crew were ALL so helpful and kind. Amazing!"
Cons: "Had to purchase even coffee, no complimentary anything."
Cons: "Air conditioning did not work in my section of the cabin The entertainment center felt like a 1960s generation VCR, esp the navigation and video quality. The selection was terrible. Food was terrible and unhealthy. Toilet seemed to have an air leak, extremely noisy air being sucked down sink. Aircraft appeared old and obsolete."
Pros: "Great crew and service"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Not only no space to get comfortable but the seats themselves are not comfortable. We had better constructed seats on the hopper from Edinburgh to London. It is unconscionable that long flights are so uncomfortable!"
Cons: "Little close on the connection"
Pros: "The flight was very good- nice that food was served even on a short flight- crew was very nice- everything was easy."
Cons: "Some passengers were allowed to drink excessively becoming very loud and continually bumping into aisle-seated passengers."
