Pros: "Everything excellent. Comfortable seats in business."

Cons: "Nothing good to say about this flight. The plane was old with no entertainment. The sits where very compact and not comfortable at all. The food was a sweet bread and water. The flight attendants were rushing and will take a while if you needed anything. I felt like I was taking a bus with graffiti all over the place."

Cons: "The cabin crew was racist. She told me to move back from an empty seat just because she wanted one of the guys ( from her country ) to set on it! Very rude and racist."

Pros: "Fabulous trip with friendly, helpful staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Good flights. Good prices."

Cons: "Crowded seating, wake-up for breakfast service two hours before arrival"

Cons: "It was announced I can choose between fish and chicken meal but when I requested for fish meal, I was told it’s finished. My seat was 21, and it surprised me. If something can be changed about that then your services would be much appreciated. Thank you."

Cons: "Business class was pretty empty but again I was not allowed to change my seat selection online. Pathetic check-in."

Pros: "quick and relaxed"

Pros: "Cabin crew very pleasant"
Cons: "Lost our bags, little sympathy from staff"

Pros: "The included snacks and the seats."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "The crew were pleasant"

Pros: "It was so easy to board and I had no inconvenience. It took 4 minutes from when I said goodbye to my family till when I was at the front of the gate."
Cons: "Nothing! It was all great!"

Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy! We ended up flying from Toronto to Paris then to Bordeaux. Lost my upgrade money for seats. Now have to deal with KLM for refund!"

Cons: "The bags where damaged from the staff"

Pros: "Free wee cake."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."

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"

Pros: "See review for previous leg of flight."
Cons: "See review for previous leg of flight."

Pros: "Good organization and nice staff"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Crew awesome"
Cons: "No all was great"

Pros: "Great equipment. Decent entertainment, sparsely filled cabin. Seat change to isle request before boarding readily made with no fuss. I noticed that passengers could actually make out pa announcements both at PDX and in flight. Doesn’t bother me anymore when I can’t but can be very concerning to anyone who rarely flies. Never understood going to the trouble of making announcements both pre-boarding & on-board pre-flight, that no one can even make out. That was not an issue here."
Cons: "Better lumbar support is always appreciated, adjustable lumbar would be very nice and could make or break an entire flight. No seat on any flight should ever be even the slightest ill repaired. Again, this equipmemt all seemed great. Lastly, since I prefer to always have a water, coke or coffe and or snack in front of me during entire flight, a bit of self serve (grab a water, coffee or snack yourself without having to make staff work a simple task would be nice on every flight. The flight from SEA-DUB was basically great and equipment is always of the utmost importantance."

Pros: "Very happy with my choice of this AE LIGUS Comfortabke seats and great crew Love it"

Pros: "Friendly boarding crew, the plane was bigger and more comfortable than many airlines use for such short flights"
Cons: "My luggage was mishandled and left in Dublin."

Pros: "It was a short flight but the flight attendants made the most of my trip. They were very accommodating"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "It was a short flight, but we had to walk literally a mile (I measured it with my fitbit) to get to the gate to board. Manchester security is frustrating...they follow different rules. Turns out you DO have to have your camera and ANY electronics (European converter, batteries, charging stations) placed outside your carry on. Only place that did it. And then they kept me in security for over an hour to have 3 different levels of security ask me the same questions over and over again. Don't know why they flagged me...maybe a false positive...as usual they won't tell you a damn thing. But the security guys weren't bad people..just been given their orders."

Cons: "I did not like how early I had to go through US preclearance before my flight...2 hours is ridiculous to have to wait at gate!"

Pros: "Very easy transit at Dublin. Staff very friendly and helpful. Immigration at Dublin for UK and for USA works great. One doesn’t have to wait in line for hours to get immigration and customs clearance at the destination after a long flight."

Cons: "I booked this in March and was seated 20 rows away from my wife who was on the same itenerary. Seats were cramped and uncomfortable and the food was terrible"

Pros: "Quick, short"
Cons: "Left late"

Pros: "plane staff asked passengers that if they did not have a plane to catch to allow those who did to deplane first."
Cons: "Very little information regarding the two hour delay. We heard that the plane was on the ground but there were no busses available to transport us to the plane."

Cons: "Very bumpy takeoff and landing"

Cons: "We tried to get a checked bag when checking it online but the site kept shutting down. When we got to the airport they told us it was $100 for each of our checked bags. They would not let us back away from the counter and check in online, even though it was only $45 online. The man who helped us was fine but his boss was rude and totally unhelpful. We will not fly Aer Lingus again if possible, which is sad because we are Irish and like the rest of the experience usually."

Pros: "Quick flight, great landing"
Cons: "Can believe they charge you for water."

Pros: "The crew was very pleasant. The food was actually good! The flight was exactly on time! And they didn’t loose my luggage! It was perfect"

Cons: "Was surprised that you had to pay for coffee or other drinks."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "At Frankfurt Main airport the check in counter had initially only one person and the lines were very long. After about 30 minutes they opened 2 more counters. We were waiting at the gate for the bus and the flight time had passed , but no announcement that the flight is delayed. finally we get on the plane and then we get an announcement that we the plane does not have clearance for another hour and half. The entertainment on board is very very old stuff, and shockingly the food is also bad and no vegetarian food."

Cons: "Delayed over 3 hours due to a mechanical problem"

Cons: "Plane"

Cons: "We were told we would revive a seat at the bulkhead with a bassinet. We did not."

Pros: "I haven't flown international in a while so enjoyed the free movies. The staff were good. We were given both pillows and blankets which was nice but kind of got in the way when not in use."
Cons: "Could have had better music choices. We are certain that when we booked the flight we chose seats but wasn't on any sites or emails we received. I really like an isle seat but did not have one."

Pros: "Got Shuffled off by British Airways onto them the seats were good and the plane was new model"
Cons: "Staff did not know how to behave when asking you a question, seemed upset and your comfort was none of there concern."

Pros: "The crew was really nice"
Cons: "I was put on probably the oldest plane they have. No outlets to charge phones, none of the headrest TVs worked, apparently you have to request vegetarian meal options in advance (news to me, these are standard on most other airlines). Would not fly again."

Pros: "Friendly staff. Made efforts to assure passengers there were arrangements made for them in Dublin due to our late departure."
Cons: "I rated food and entertainment as 1 star since there is no N/A option. Our short flight did not provide them."

Cons: "It was freezing cold in the airplane."

Pros: "Good in flight entertainment system. Lots of options."
Cons: "Be very aware of your seats proximity to the restrooms. I paid for the extra legroom seat that turned out to be where everyone waiting for the restroom stood. I felt very bad for the passenger who was seated directly across the aisle from the restroom door."

Pros: "Punctual and on time"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "Free movies"
Cons: "I was told I had three aisle seats back to back. When we got to our seats, we were one seat in from the aisle. They changed my original flight which had a 1 and 1/2 hrs layover to a flight that had a 20 and 1/2 hour layover and refused to pay for a hotel or meals for my family."

Pros: "good crew"

Cons: "Small seats but overall a comfortable quick flight"

Cons: "Had to cancel trip. Took many phone calls because the Internet service does not respond. Tried to change trip initially but they were unable to or not set up to work with British airways. Kayak should not use this company. I will never book with them again"

Pros: "Their hospitality was far beyond any other airlines."

Pros: "Some of the flight crew."
Cons: "Some of the flight crew. The arm rests don't go all the way up which makes it really hard when traveling with a toddler. This was the case on the short flight and the longer flight to LAX. Not a fan of the food. Most of the crew seemed preoccupied and grumpy."

Pros: "Both British airline and Aer Lingus service was 5star. and kayak did its job they made reservation super easy."

Cons: "Not enough variety in food. Should be one meat and one non meat style menu."

Cons: "Boarding was a disaster as my companion was selected for random search which held us up as there was no urgency to process us. Then there was no sign for where we should go since upper deck on 747 so we went in "economy" line as indicated on ticket and then was sent to correct line when we got to the front, wasting more time. The seatrs were the most uncomfortable I have ever beeon on for a long flight. I also paid extra to be in the exit row, to have people constantly congregating in front of us.The food was also mediocre."

Pros: "The rest area"
Cons: "The airport was cold and it should be warmer"

Pros: "The seats were bigger across the shoulder area and had more padding than some other budget airlines."
Cons: "Wish there was more elbow room in the seat. I am a big guy and I was having to squish myself so as to not interfere with my neighbor"

Pros: "Spacious business class seats, excellent meals"
Cons: "Lack of ventilation in cabin, and staff refusal to turn heaters down (in September), very limited entertainment options."

Pros: "The cabin crew were amazing and the seats very comfortable, even in economy. I'm not a super comfortable flyer so I loved that the pilot would always warn when we were getting into turbulence. 2 thumbs up. I will fly Air France again"
Cons: "I'd appreciate a better selection of food and drinks, even if I have to pay for the drinks."

Pros: "Entertainment programs"
Cons: "New variety of food"

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "Both flights through Detroit were re-routed, our luggage was lost for 4 days."

Cons: "They made me check my carryon rolly which is allowed on every other plane in the world, which meant going all the way back into a chaos of hundreds of people to check in. Because I had a connecting flight to New York in London, the check in caused many problems...and everything inside soaking wet"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "No wifi on a 9 hour flight. Takes a long time to get another round of coffee."

Pros: "Boarding procedures and crew were top. Wines and beverages excellent and even in super economy water was served several times"
Cons: "The food could have been much better, should consider doing everything organic. As it was, the chicken in the meal was awful, the dessert terrible. The rice in the salad hard, almost uncooked. The only good quality food was the bread and the cheese"

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "In flight complimentary food and drink service could have been better."

Pros: "Air. France usual"
Cons: "No lights working on plane. Couldn't read or do work WiFi wasn't working either"

Cons: "Baggage took a while to reach baggage claim but maybe a bit impatient after a long day"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The plane (Boeing 777) is packed like a sardines can, with 10 narrow uncomfortable seats across in Economy Class. The crew didn't even bring water for an 1,5 hr into the flight! The plane was very hot, with very little air flowing through the salon. Food was bland for dinner and inedible for breakfast. The crew was barely there, and borderline rude when asked something."

Cons: "Tiny uncomfortable seats."

Pros: "Very nice stews. Food was A plus compared to US airlines AND included. Great list of movies etc."

Pros: "Good size plane. It didn’t end up being full so there was plenty of room to move around. Quick flight and easy."

Pros: "The airplane have great entertainment system. The cabin crew are very nice."

Cons: "People may think,that the delay of the flight has set my mood for this review but I can ensure it has most definitely not. With all the bad weather, I was already very happy to connect right on time in Paris. However, a long haul A380 flight with such a tight seat configurstion is almost embarrassing for an airline. The in flight entertainment is at a very poor level, not only with the screen being very small and outdated, many of the movies are only available in French and the international selection very limited. The food was not much of a delight, whereas the presentation was nice. However, in all the 7 h between the services, nobody came around with refreshments in a completely booked flight, neither was announced that a trolly would be set for self service in the galley. Lucky the ones who got up and found out about. In terms of amenities, again, the airline is lacking of originality and saves cost. Bottom line: you get from A to B, but there are so many better competitors in the market, which I shall definitely consider on my next travel."

Cons: "It was delayed. I missed my flight. Now I don’t have a bag. I am not sure when I get it back or if I have to go all the way back to the airport"

Cons: "Just a need to improve entertainment facilities (digital screen, Wi-Fi. ..)"

Pros: "Leg room is bigger than average, there is also a foot step which helps you to relax."
Cons: "There must be lice on the plane, either from the customer or on the seats. Got bitten 6 times on the leg and butt!!! And this is not the first time hearing same story, Air France definitely needs to disinfect the plane more thoroughly. Media center is outdated, touch screen isn’t working well, felt being punched in head every time when ppl behind you tries to touch the screen!"

Pros: "Good food. Although no Cappucino as in AF from Sanfransisco to Paris."
Cons: "No entertainment at al. Specifically, I could not lean my seat b/c of a mom with a baby behind me..."

Pros: "Usual efficient BA"
Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "Missed connection due to delays on previous flight"

Cons: "After sitting on the tarmac (I understand the delay) for 2 hours there was no water available for another hour past takeoff. And then it was only available for purchase. Really, a cup of free water is asking too much?"

Pros: "Good cabin crew and boarded direct from terminal via airbridge. Also good food in Club Europe for such a short flight."
Cons: "Slight 15 minute delay and miserly legroom in Club Europe - densification gone too far."

Cons: "cramped and very warm"

Pros: "I thought British Airways was a better airline. I hope they do better job to when I return back to my home next mointh!"

Pros: "The cabin crew were friendly and service was excellent"
Cons: "Keep the complementary snacks and drinks made the flight great after a long day"

Cons: "late on two occasions first one 20 mins second and the n an hour. Not told why. Then boarding passes had to be reissued with different seats ..whole thing a shambles"

Pros: "Got me there"
Cons: "Basic"

Cons: "M&S Food menu is limited as it is - they then also run out of most items and couldnt serve passengers on a 5 hour flight.."

Pros: "BA couldn't get our boarding passes to work no matter how many times they printed out new ones and we had to land into proper arrivals (though we were in transit in Heathrow) and tell five different groups of staff what was going on, even though it wasn't our problem but their computer glitch. One man at security was even rude to me, telling me not to just stand there. ( I had been told to stand there whilst they went and tried to remedy for the umpteenth time). When I showed him my disabled badge and said I would personally prefer NOT to be left standing for hours, he said 'so?'. It was a nightmare. It took hours and still wasn't sorted and in the end the immigration officers had to be called to the boarding area to allow us on the flight with non functioning boarding cards. It wasn't even our fault. REally upset about it."

Pros: "The staff are friendly and cheerful. No food or entertainment for the short donestic flight (as would be expected anywhere for a 50 min flight)"
Cons: "Boarding badly organised ... signs telling you where to queue are double sided and depending which side you see first direct you into the wrong lane... Left a bit late but arrived pretty much on time. Baggage didn't arrive after a 2 hour transfer and this is the third time in four times over the past few years. I strongly do not recommend BA as a domestic UK connection after an international arrival."

Pros: "Happy stewards"

Cons: "Everyone was terrible"

Cons: "Cabin luggage is too big for regional aircraft. Size limits need to be imposed more strictly."

Cons: "Boarding process was a bit chaotic. Announcement s needed to be clearer. Also all old movies on the IFE."

Pros: "Left/arrived on time"

Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "not a lot of leg room. Took a while to board."

Cons: "It was extremely hot on the plane. for the first 30 minutes there was no ac available and there was little to no help from the staff. I asked for water to cool myself down and ov waited about ten minutes to get it after hitting my help button multiple times. The flight attendants may have been overwhelmed with the requests as there were many just like me who struggled so they came off very rude. The plane was also not updated at all - not personal entertainment and once again, no ac/air for people to control."

Pros: "Quick boarding and landed earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "The air-con was too cold. The seats don't allow you to sleep as there's no where to rest your head against."

Cons: "Delayed flight, once on board the aircraft, further delays on the ground (at Glasgow) made up time in the air landed (not too far from our original landing time) only to be told we’re now being held on the ground (at Gatwick for at least another 20 minutes!) I flew with BA this morning and rated them excellent for everything! EJ you need to up your game!"

Pros: "It was very quick and arrived ahead of time."

Pros: "Crew were amazing arrived early"
Cons: "In flight entertainment"

Pros: "Roomy seats"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Pros: "The check in was very good and there were people about to ask if you needed help"

Cons: "long delays"

Pros: "Boarding was fast."
Cons: "Once on board, we were told there was going to be a 30 minute delay. It was hot as balls on the plane."

Cons: "It’s was late both out and return"

Cons: "Plane delayed and overbooked"

Cons: "The flight was delayed, normal easy jet flight, not expensive, short on space and just about ok on comfort. But, good flight times and reasonable cost. There was a very big man in my row, with his small wife, he just about fitted on,but I don't think of have accepted him sitting next to me."

Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent. The flight was very smooth."
Cons: "It was one of the best flights ive been on and would recommend easyjet."

Pros: "easy, no fuss boarding and flight"
Cons: "the queuing to have your bags scanned as you board your flight was confusing as there were 3 queues in the same space for flights leaving within 10 minutes of each other. Not a big deal, but someone explaining which queue to those at the back would have been helpful"

Pros: "Friendly crew."

Pros: "quick check in information given in good time regular messages about potential disruption friendly staff"
Cons: "some times cabin staff were a bit too business-like al few people skills would be good"

Cons: "Excellent flight, only issue was flight information from Captain was spoken too fast and it was hard to understand what was said...please ask them to slow down their speech on the in flight announcements, cabin staff were fine"

Cons: "No delays!"

Pros: "Efficient No Frills Value For Money"
Cons: "Cramped Seating"

Pros: "Professional crew"
Cons: "2-hour delay due to "crew welfare issues" Even after a 2-hour delay, they let more cabin baggage on board than was possible to stow in the lockers, resulting in rather chaotic scenes around transfer of baggage to the hold, and adding toi delay.. Entirely avoidable"

Pros: "Great service landed early both ways defo use again"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "No having to have hassle of traveling"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "quick flight staff excellent"
Cons: "Very. bumpy lots of turbulence I know that's not the airlines fault but you asked what I didn't like."

Pros: "I liked the price of my flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour and there was no update on the app to indicate it. A lot of time wasted waiting in the airport and a very late arrival in Manchester."

Cons: "40 min departure delay due to Stanstead airport unable to allocate the usual landing slot before we left Glasgow."

Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Almost 2hour delay"

Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Long lines, long delay, non comfortable seats, no entertainment"

Pros: "Speedy boarding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed from 2040 to 2230"

Pros: "NOTHINg"
Cons: "More than 60 min delay!!!!!!!!!"

Pros: "Boarding was quick, flight was smooth, captain kept us updated throughout the flight, cabin crew was friendly and polite."

Pros: "Staff were pleasant and the pilot did an excellent job in difficult weather conditions"
Cons: "The flight was not stocked with sufficient food and had run out of sandwiches by row 3. Considering food is purchased for an additional fee this is surely makes poor business sense aside from being frustrating for passengers on a 3 hour flight plus a delay. Flights were very expensive especially when factoring in that we had to pay to check a bag, to select seats and to purchase food and drink. Worked out as terrible value for money when compared with an Emirates flight to New Zealand."

Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Boarding was slow Seat was very uncomfortable, it is like they discriminate against tall people, leg space gets less and less by the year"

Pros: "The landing was hairy and I have never experienced a fish tail landing quite like it before."
Cons: "The landing was horrid and Im sure I lost £15 off the cashier for wine and cheddar crackers was like a magic trick gone wrong. Sort your float for each flight and stop making assumptions with short change and playing games."

Pros: "Flight was well organised and lef on time."
Cons: "Rating of one star for food was because we didn't have any and entertainment because understandably there wasn't any."

Pros: "Friendly staff, food ok"
Cons: "Shepherded into a small area with very few seats, and anyway, we were held in lanes like sheep! Seating on the plane - narrow and little space between rows. Had to wait quite a while for baggage to arrive."

Pros: "Staff were very helpful and friendly."
Cons: "The food wasn't that great but it was reasonably priced to not the end of the world"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Booked wrong date before confirmation came phoned to cancel was told I couldn't have a refund would never use easy jet again"

Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy. I was directed towards the rear if the plane so I didn't have to walk town the entire plane. I was offered to check my hand luggage in the hold for free"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Flight delay both outbound and return"

Cons: "It was appalling. 2 hour delay. Good reminder why I never fly them usually."

Pros: "Spacious seats for an airplane! And the takeoff and landing were so smooth."
Cons: "Being from the US, we weren't familiar with the boarding process (no gate # until almost time)- but that was our challenge, not anyone else's. we really enjoyed flying Easyjet."

Cons: "Easyjets own App cancelled my flight and the rescinded this cancellation. Thus I travelled to the airport and found it was cancelled again. Worse; initially no rescheduled flight for >5 days. Had to buy a seperate ticket to a different airport."

Cons: "Failing to check in before getting to the airport will result in them selling your already bought ticket to someone else. This happened to me and had to by a one-way ticket with British Airways at double the cost of the original return ticket from EasyAir. Did not even try to help."

Pros: "Short, quick flight that saved me a lot o time"
Cons: "Queuing on a stairwell in Belfast"

Pros: "Boarding was efficient when we eventually boarded, could have been more organised."
Cons: "No food left to purchase on a flight that was delayed by 90 minutes, gate staff allowed oversize bags onto aircraft causing issues for crew and passengers, could have been an easy £45 for EZY. No boutique service on flight."

Pros: "On time, welcoming crew on board"
Cons: "Request to put small handbag into half empty flight bag is just petty. If easyJet insist on checking customers through and then holding them in a pen, they should provide facilities/seating - we are not cattle but that is the impression given."

Pros: "Departed punctually in both directions. Just a 25 minute flight so there's not much more I can say."

Pros: "On time fantastic !"

Pros: "Very comfortable experience. Boarding was easy. Check in was convenient. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Nothing in particular to dislike."

Pros: "The crew were very friendly, attentive and helpful where possible."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 1 hour 30 minutes but there was almost no information about this other than the EasyJet app, even the airport boards provided misinformation. A last minute gate change brought upon a stampede, the flight was overbooked, and whilst not EasyJet's fault, 20 children on a midnight flight did not make for an enjoyable experience."

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Nothing"
