Pros: "Great crew & good complimentary food"
Cons: "More seat pitch"

Cons: "Not having to go to a different, further away airport because I missed my connection. Not having my luggage go missing and not get delivered within 24 hours."

Cons: "You could have had my luggage arrive. Now I don’t know where it is"

Cons: "Delayed flight."

Pros: "3 - 2 seat arrangement and lots of leg room. Excellent boarding."
Cons: "Bread of sandwich was dry."

Pros: "It was a lovely easy flight, always lovely flying star alliance."
Cons: "Such a quick flight, everything was appropriate for that. Unsure exactly what would make it better"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew was polite and helpful. The wine was free and each seat had it's own screen with a good assortment of movies and TV shows."
Cons: "The food could be much better. Although coming from Sicily it's tough to compare."

Cons: "entertainment sound"

Cons: "45mn late"

Pros: "The food and service."

Cons: "I was asked to check my carry-on. I have used this carry-on more than 50x without an issue. I have even put it in the smaller compartments on smaller Bombardier jets. I don't have an issue with being asked to check luggage, but I resent being asked when others are allowed to take their carry-on onto to the plane without issue. Right in front of me while I was waiting for a baggage tag, others were being checked in with carry-on equal to mine and allowed to take it onto the plane. I can only surmise that my ticket limited me to one bag onto the plane, although they would not tell me this. This was not clear when I booked the ticket nor when I checked in on-line. I had a 40 minute connection in Zurich so was very concerned that my luggage would not make it. Luckily, it did make it to my next stop. Swiss Air seems to have different restrictions than other airlines which I have encountered before. I take ownership that I should be aware of a tickets restrictions but this was a multi-leg trip (5). However, I will tend to avoid Swiss air in the future, to avoid having to research their unique restrictions."

Pros: "Crew great service"
Cons: "Boarding was slow —delayed takeoff for nearly an hour"

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "I would have liked a better selection of movies and TV series and games"

Cons: "It was delayed"

Pros: "We did not get on any flight to NY!!!!"

Pros: "Not applicable"
Cons: "See above."

Cons: "Nasty passport control person at gate check in"

Pros: "Les hôtesses ont été super gentilles. Merci!!!"
Cons: "L’espace entre les sièges est très réduit"

Pros: "3"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Food was actually really good."
Cons: "Please let families with small children board early. This is the first flight I remember where I and other families with small children had to board with everyone else, and it's stressful for all involved."

Pros: "Check in easy"
Cons: "Weren’t told enough about delays ... very tight seating crew was friendly"

Cons: "30 mins late both ways"

Pros: "The crew was very efficient and very helpful. They were constantly attending to passenger’s needs."

Pros: "on time and got us there on time."
Cons: "untrained staff waking people up no flexibility with ordering GF dinner late"

Pros: "Excellent organization, food and entertainment. Impeccable service."

Pros: "People friendly"
Cons: "Food was poor, really poor, no options for the children Headphone socket in the seat"

Cons: "Bathroom not clean"

Pros: "Plane was comfortable (for a plane) and the staff were polite and efficient. The flight made up lots of time and the in flight snacks were very welcome."
Cons: "The flight was very delayed, and the communications from Swiss was lacking. In fact their app thought the flight had taken off and landed on time?!"

Cons: "Headphones are real cheap and hurt the ears...plus it has two pin socket where you can't use your regular headphones...please change this!"

Cons: "1h45 departure delayed with no compensation."

Cons: "Paucity of games that might appeal to non children."

Pros: "Over all I enjoyed flying with Swiss over the past 40 years. This was a first time my experience was not to my expectation."

Cons: "entertainment machine in my seat did not worked"

Pros: "It was an uneventful trip, which is what you want in a trip by air. Boarding was easy, seats are pretty comfortable, staff friendly and helpful."

Pros: "Staff was gracious and accommodating for whatever we needed. It felt much better than typical economy class. It made the 8 hour plus flight quite manageable."

Pros: "The crew members were polite and efficient."
Cons: "There was no climate control. Our rows were freezing cold. People were wearing coats and blankets. Four or five rows up it was warm. My husband asked for more heat and the stewardess said she would turn it up, but nothing happened. Cold air blew out of the ceiling vents for the entire flight. When we reached our gate, we then waited in a long line to have our passports and boarding passes checked again. There were several Swissair crew members, but only one person to check all of the paperwork for economy. Then another long line to show our boarding passes again, while the business class entrance remained unused. Swissair needs someone to manage this better."

Cons: "Time"

Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late. This is my second experience in a week with Swiss flights being 2-4 hours behind."

Pros: "What I liked is that they didn't really focus on the weight I had little more weight and they didn't really make an issue for me"
Cons: "Geneva airport is so busy on the weekend I had to stay in the line for 20 minutes it's a little annoying"

Cons: "smooth & efficient friendly crew"

Cons: "They checked at the gate all our hand luggages to make sure we didnt exceed the 8 kilo mark. This is very cheap and only suitable for the low cost airlines. I expect swiss air as a higher class flight to turn a blind eye on this matter"

Pros: "the entertainment system was perfect, there were lots of movies and shows to entertain you, including newly release films. there were games and music also availble. the seating was comfortable we had blankets and pillows. The beverage service great and the food was good to. although there could have been better options in terms of the dessert ( ice cream taht was provided)"
Cons: "the boarding was poor, we waited in line to board and they did not announce to us that we need to have our ticket stamped before we got to the door, as a result we were sent out of line once the ticket was stamped we had to rejoin the line from the back. When i got through they then said something was wrong with my ticket in which they took it and I was pulled out of the line. they should try to the ticket check and the boarding line at the same time"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Video screens didn't work. Seats were terrible and some broken. Flight crew was useless."

Pros: "Nothing distinguishes itself for better or worse than usual in coach."

Pros: "Very clean"

Pros: "The seats have been much better"
Cons: "The entertainment system is a little old (plugs are not universal), you had to use their (cheap) headsets."

Pros: "service personnel were excellent. Espresso is great."
Cons: "Business class main meal was disappointing."

Pros: "The crew was friendly, the food delicious, and the plane itself in highest quality and state-of-the-art."

Pros: "Amazing !"
Cons: "Nothing all good really"

Cons: "Very cramped aisle seat and I kept being knocked by passing crewe including knocking over a cup of water."

Pros: "Crew was generally nice and caring."
Cons: "Of course coach seat was not super comfortable. And speaker and screen at my seat did not work."

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Screens have poor color quality Seat too small Legroom cut into by electronics box Row 45 next to bathroom and no windows"

Pros: "Premium economy was perfect, smaller cabin with less people, great flight."

Pros: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Cons: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."

Pros: "Meals were excellent and plane was very clean. Economy delight is definitely an upgrade worth considering with extra leg room and space in front of you in general."
Cons: "Boarding can get crowded so don't be in a rush"

Cons: "My bag was damaged in transit"

Pros: "Provides the service you'd expect from an international carrier. Boarded on time, seat actually reclines, meals, baggage, seat assignments are included in the price. Staff treat you well and the price isn't bad."
Cons: "Virgin website is slow and not intuitive. Couldn't get seat assignment until i was at the gate. No explanation why. Boarding announcements delivered via ESP. Half of the passengers were still in the boarding area because no one heard announcements. Arrived 30 min early but had to wait on the tarmac for 45 min for a parking gate. Baggage delivery at JFK took forever."

Pros: "Service, pilot updates, and seating were all great!"

Pros: "The flight crew was phenomenal, especially Daniella. Somehow we wound up with seats right next to the bathroom door, which would have been a pretty uncomfortable situation for a variety of reasons, but the flight wasn't full, and she helped us find a suitable place to sit. Also, my wife and I usually take our tea with honey vs. milk and sugar. Even though honey is usually one of the options for tea, she found a way to accommodate our request. The lunch meals were the best I can remember in a long time on an airline flight. They might have been the best I've ever had. The chicken curry was authentic, flavorful and spicy. Frankly my outbound flight had problems. My luggage got damaged. The transfer experience in Manchester left a LOT to be desired. I wasn't planning to use Virgin Atlantic again, but this flight crew (Daniella especially) redeemed Virgin Atlantic. They were attentive, pleasant, diligent."
Cons: "Only thing I didn't like about this flight was the boarding area. Once you get into that the area, you don't really have access to appetizing food (only vending machines) or even restrooms. That's one thing that could be improved."

Pros: "Friendly staff, so much food/snacks were offered. Good movies available."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Queue at boarding gate for upper class ticket holders Bus transfer to plane - Virgin is not a LoCo airline! Upper Class Service was slow - understaffed?"

Pros: "Service, meals, friendly and attentive FAs"

Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "The food was okay. There were more tasty options traveling to Heathrow versus from Heathrow to the NYC. The boarding process was a mess. We had to wait in an enormous line and then take a bus to the flight."

Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent!"
Cons: "I paid extra for Economy Delight seats for me and my wife. Shortly after take-off, our calm and comfortable more or less empty section of the aircraft was colonised by an extended family of Orthodox Jews in a kind of airborne West Bank situation. They weren’t in our section of the cabin at all to start with, and I don’t know why they were apparently able to get a free upgrade that I had to pay £100 for. We went from being in an almost empty cabin to being basically sat in the middle of an Orthodox Jewish kindergarten. It was awful! They were noisy, messy, were constantly getting in and out of their seats, the back of my seat kept getting kicked, and there was even a baby crawling around the aisle. We were surrounded. I have no idea whether this is characteristic of Orthodox Jewish family life, or just a completely inconsiderate family. They didn’t exactly ruin my flight, but they didn’t make it enjoyable either. I asked to be moved. The cabin crew were great and acknowledged the difficulty of the situation. My wife lost her window seat but at least we still had the legroom and peace and quiet."

Pros: "Legroom, lovely staff and all round good flight"

Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Seats and legroom poor if you’re six feet tall"

Cons: "Older media entertainment screen with hard to use touch interface."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I had to run for almost 2 miles every time I had to change the flight. On the way to India they lost my one bag, and on the way back to US they lost my both begs."

Pros: "Quite a big choice of movies and TV shows to watch, more than enough for an eight hour flight. Normal headphone plugs so you can use your own."
Cons: "I booked together with my wife, yet we were allocated seats apart and were not able to be reassigned together. The leg room was so tight that I could not pick up things off the floor without putting my head in the next persons lap. Though the cabin crew were smiley and friendly, it was hard to get their attention when needed. The PA system is much louder than the entertainment, so announcements were ear bursting. The dinner selections ran out early, so a good proportion did not get their choice."

Cons: "We were told over the phone that we could bring our kayaks with us to Africa but the airport staff denied not only our kayaks, but also our paddles which were in a standard ski bag. Their excuse was that both the kayaks and paddle bags were 2 inches too long. .. TWO INCHES!!!!!! We had record of the person we talked to and the time and date, but none of that seemed to matter. It caused A HUGE INCONVENIENCE for us since we are in Zambia for 6 weeks without our gear to paddle one of the most challenging rivers in the world... the Zambezi. Now we are constantly trying to acquire the proper equipment with very little success. We run a nonprofit called the Montana Kayak Academy which provides free whitewater instruction to youth between 8 &18 yrs old and we will be sure to tell everyone we know to NOT TRAVEL WITH EITHER VIRGIN ATLANTIC OR BRITISH AIRWAYS.... EVER!!! VERY DISAPPOINTED! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Pros: "NA"

Pros: "Everything went very fast and smooth. I didn't have to queue for the boarding. The Sita were very comfortable, the crew very friendly and halepful and the selection of the movies A+."

Pros: "Choice of movies was good, but told the flight over was better. I flew another airline. Had no issue checking one bag in for free, but I think that is standard on an international flight."
Cons: "Entertainment systems take up foot/bag space underneath the seats. Was not able to get more than one glass of wine, even though I missed the first beverage service, that is my fault though, but I don't recall it being an issue getting a drink between services. Entertainment systems had contrast issues and it seemed like a lot of people 8 - 10 had issues since they were using iPads instead of the built in monitors. A lot of wear showing on the entertainment systems remotes."

Pros: "Efficient service"
Cons: "Entertainment screens were of poor quality"

Cons: "My headphones and those of my neighbors did not work."

Pros: "The staff was so helpful and upbeat and somehow they stayed that way the whole 8 hour flight. This was economy btw! More good things: Comfy seat, personal entertainment screen, really nice food. One free checked bag, bathroom was bigger, (it may have been a handicapped bathroom)."
Cons: "Nothing was a problem at all. (I saved "excellent" for the things I really wanted to emphasize)"

Pros: "Food was great, plenty of it also"
Cons: "I'm 6'4" and there was no acknowledgement by the crew that I was squashed into a tight seat."

Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and poor food."

Cons: "The leg space is very tight, it was very hard to sit specially for longer flights it's not that comfortable"

Pros: "free wine, good food, and friendly cabin crew? what more could you want? oh, a good variety of entertainment. I watched two documentaries and "The Lobster" a great choice, never would have seen it otherwise."
Cons: "The seat cushions are really hard and not very comfortable to sit on for a long flight. If you could get a higher density foam that would be great. my bum was a bit sore/uncomfortable."

Cons: "45 minute delay on runway after landing was very very frustrating."

Pros: "Staff were friendly and flight was clean. Lots of movies to watch."
Cons: "The seats gets smaller each year. For a seven hour flight, the seats are very uncomfortable, no space to move. The flight with the hand held remote control TV had poor visual quality. It was hard to watch movies with dark background."

Cons: "It was late leaving."

Pros: "Good was decent."
Cons: "This VS25 flight, whatever airplane it was felt old and the v poorly designed "seat back pocket" sat so low and protruded out so much that it pushed against your knees. V uncomfortable."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The food I had food poisoning"

Pros: "Extremely uncomfortable seats in the Economy section and a very confusing remote control to maneuver the entertainment screen. The crew was excellent so it's not their fault. The food was passable but those white bread rolls got to go. My luggage didn't arrive so let's hope they bring it today."

Pros: "Flight D001 (Delta / Virgin, LHR to JFK) Staff were terrific. The food was the best I've had so far (and I fly a lot!) The choice of entertainment was varied and excellent. Flight was smooth and captain was very communicative."
Cons: "Chair kept snapping back to position from recline (33E). Man behind me kept banging on the screen behind my head Inspite of announcement not to do do from cabin crew. If they could catch ppl doing that and say something that would be great :-) (although I realize if course the this isn't their fault.)"

Pros: "Good service, comfortable seats and quick flight, great combination for a long trip."

Pros: "Delta service and comfort is always excellent."

Cons: "Crew was rude and made everything seem like a chore."

Cons: "I booked with KLM (sky team) two separate return bookings on via SKY TEAM JFK > heathrow (delta) Heathrow > Amsterdam (klm) On the return leg, I couldn’t check my bag all the way through to JFK even though I stayed on SKY TEAM carriers. That should be possible, otherwise the value of staying in SKY TEAM isn’t as valuable to me."

Cons: "Food was awful. Didn't get my checked luggage in Manila upon arrival, was traced and left in New York JFK. Don't know who messed up with my luggage if Delta connection or China airlines."

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Staff very courteous and professional"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "A3A"
Cons: "Ĺ"

Cons: "The overhead bin did not stay down low enough so that I could place my bag in. It would lower then before I could place my bag raise slightly by a few inches. For someone of my height (5’5”) that was problematic. Fortunately another passenger saw my dilemma and held the bin lower to its full opening capacity. This also momentarily slowed down the boarding process."

Pros: "Nothing Special"

Pros: "Generally everything went smoothly on this leg of my trip."

Cons: "Delays!"

Pros: "Smooth and easy."
Cons: "Not applicable"

Pros: "The variety of what you could listen to or watch. Liked the way the seats reclined. Plenty of leg room (I am short)."

Pros: "Layout of aircraft"
Cons: "Couldn't find USB port."

Pros: "Updated plane, movies are old but a verity"
Cons: "Lost two pieces of luggage"

Pros: "Extra leg room with Sky priority"
Cons: "We upgraded to Sky priority but we're not allowed to load with Sky priority. They made us wait for Zone 3. We also did not get the designated overhead space we paid for and had to put our bags under the seat in front of us. A bit disappointing to pay $240 extra and not get what we paid for."

Pros: "Super friendly and attentive crew. Good food. Nice new seats. Great tv entertainment options!"

Pros: "I didn't like anything because the fly leat 3 hours"

Cons: "Entertainment was working, watching movie when they said done didn't have do they were resetting system. They tried twice taking over an hour and it never came back on for anyone..... :("

Pros: "I didnt ever purchase that ticket"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Being scammed by the Chinese, China Southern"

Pros: "The prompt transfer"
Cons: "My one piece of hard shell luggage has a special, difficult way of latching. As long as nobody opens it, it stays fine for shipping. The problem is your greedy Chinese luggage handling thieves who work for your airlines in Chinese airports. Whenever they can steal from luggage, they always try to steal from passengers, particularly American. I have had multiple experiences with theft from Chinese airports. I have been to China and back to the USA five times. Many times, items have disappeared from my suitcases in Chinese airports. That is why I decided not to move to China to live but instead move to Indonesia. However, if I fly any plane that transfers my luggage in China, I can usually expect to have my luggage robbed. Although this time, nothing was missing from my luggage, that fact that your people had to wrap my suitcase in plastic (because they did not know the secret for relatching it) and resend it a day later, that is proof that one of your airport personnel opened it to see what he could steal and then got caught because he could not close it again. I am really really really tired of you Chinese thieves. I blame all of you because you are all a product of Mao Tse Tung’s godless atheistic evil society. The Chinese have proven to me again and again that they cannot be trusted. A Kong Chinese official even stole my Ohio driver’s license when I transferred through that airport on a previous trip to Jakarta. I understand your problem. If you fire all dishonest luggage department workers, you will not have any workers remaining. That is why you will always rank as a third world backward primitive society even though you buy expensive airplanes that you don’t build and dress your people up like professionals which they aren’t. AS LONG AS Chinese airport luggage people are dishonest and cannot be trusted, your entire airline is a failure. That is not prejudice against Chinese people. I know some honest good ones. They are all Christians, the kind of good people the corrupt Chinese government hates. An atheistic country is an evil country. Do not expect to be respected by honest people. You people clearly do not deserve it. You are still in the stone age when it comes to professionalism which requires total honesty, a quality which your luggage handlers consider to be dispensable. Such cave men they are!"

Cons: "I reserved and paid for Delta comfort and ended up flying AeroMexico and Virgin Atlantic who could care less so I didn't sit comfortably, no wifi and for Virgin Atlantic I had to pay extra to get more legroom! NOT a satisfying experience."

Pros: "Overall service, food, entertainment was good. This was a Virgin Atlantic flight to New york with a connecting flight to LA."
Cons: "The time between the two connecting flights made it impossible to make the next flight. Between waiting for customs and my luggage by the time I made it to check my bag again it was time for the flight to leave. There just isn't enough time and it looked like everyone missed their connecting flights."

Pros: "Stewards"

Pros: "loved the cookies!"
Cons: "Wish there were more legroom on those little planes."

Pros: "The flight attendants were stellar--polite, respectful, helpful, attentive. I want to particularly commend the attendant who, after I notified her that someone was very ill in the adjacent bathroom, stood discreetly nearby and offered the person a glass of water when he emerged. Very considerate."
Cons: "The transfer was a horrible, stressful experience. We knew it as a short connection but Lufthansa had accepted it. On our outward bound flight three weeks earlier, we were all met and escorted swiftly by a flight attendant from the first leg plane (EWR-MUN) to the second leg plane (MUN-Nice) to ensure that we all made it onboard. Impressive. On our return journey, no such luck! No attendant to meet us, and a huge line at immigration, full of panicked and stressed-out passengers jockeying for position, with no-one from ANY airline there to do a triage for those with the shortest connections. Ridiculous. In addition, the passport-scanning machines were very slow and quirky. My own passport was rejected because there was no evidence I had passed through Munich on my outward bound journey!! RIDICULOUS. I managed to slip through to a human being and begged the immigration officer to let me go through with my husband, who had had no such problem. The officer told me he could not find a stamp from my earlier transit through!!! Eventually I suppose he did because he let me through. The stamp was there, I found it, but it had been sloppily applied and was half off the page...hence the rejection by the scanner. We made the flight by minutes. NOT GOOD! Surely Lufthansa could do better in their own country???"

Pros: "Easy check-in and helpful staff. I would absolutely fly with Lufthansa again"

Pros: "Flights were cancelled that day due to a storm, but Lufthansa were able to fly an empty aircraft from Rome to fly us from London to Frankfurt. Despite the circumstances, Lufthansa were able to still offer catering. Thank you for your cimmitment."
Cons: "Lufthansa in general could invest a little more in the food they serve. Lufthansa's domestic and inter European flights are never a culinary highlight. :-("

Pros: "more than 2 hours spent in the plane which was the reason for waiting at the airport taxi and extra pay."

Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "everthing was good!"

Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"

Pros: "everything from the boarding and check-in process to in flight comfort."

Pros: "Was informed that boarding would be delayed but began within minutes. Arriva time was spot on"

Cons: "Most cramped seat I've ever sat in. Couldn't even sit because my knees hit the seat in front, before my but was in the chair."

Pros: "Priority boarding with small kids"
Cons: "In London I was required to ask fro this priority boarding with kids if not asked I would be queuing with small kids for 15 minutes.. (whilst In Frankfurt we have been invited to be boarded as first ones without asking for it.)"

Pros: "Coffee was excellent"

Pros: "terrible earphone, could listen only on one ear."

Pros: "vunderbar"

Pros: "very clean and nice cabin space"

Pros: "I loved how friendly the airline attendants were."
Cons: "I didn't like how in the Munich airport I couldn't find a place to plug my phone in. they should make those more accessible"

Pros: "Staff/stewards were very upbeat and pleasant, professional and were perfect at looking after very tired customers (at least for me)."

Pros: "Staff attentive. Came by very frequently."

Pros: "That my bag was at Johannesburg. My first flight was delayed due to a technical issue which meant I only had less than an hour until my connecting flight. It took me almost 20 minutes to walk to the gate just in time for boarding and was pleased that my bag had made it onto the same flight. There was loads of leg room in economy which as a tall person is really important."

Pros: "more comedies movies and more up to date soccer"

Pros: "I'v said it all above. Liked everthng"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "The flight attendants were good - they run a tight ship, both from a safety perspective and looking out for the passengers. That said, they should have allowed me to move to any open seat, except first class, to accommodate any passenger with broken equipment at the seat they selected."
Cons: "This old plane had broken seats with broken entertainment equipment. After changing seats twice, my ultimate seat still had a loud buzz in the sound system. The flight attendants should be allowed to seat an inconvenienced passenger in any open seat in the event of broken equipment. Space in the seats was ridiculously tight for a 7 hr international flight."

Cons: "Lufthansa is not handing out any bottles. Water is served in small plastic glasses and does not come by often enough. I got off the plane dehydrated."

Pros: "Traveled with my dog. They had empty row so United moved us there so dog can be comfortable under the middle seat. Staff was very nice and offered water and ice for the dog."

Cons: "Pilot did not yet to avoid turbulences, which were pretty bad. They also lost my luggage which arrived after three days."

Pros: "Comfortable and convenient"

Pros: "One crew member servicing first class was in a mood “not to be here” - it is sad because of first class experience is higher than usual! It was just bad!"
Cons: "I honestly don’t have an answer for this, I guess these kind of crew should not on board especially in first class!"

Pros: "Lovely crew, very good entertainment system."

Pros: "It was on one of their newer planes which meant that we had decent comfort and entertainment!"
Cons: "The seats were staggered between the middle and sides, so my family was eventually split across two rows. I hadn't expected that."

Pros: "All good. Very hospitable cabin crew, great service."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Customer service and efficiency"
Cons: "The delay because of a software glitch"

Cons: "The time. Ity was very delayed. Almost lost my last connection."

Pros: "The blueberry juice was good!!"
Cons: "Sitting by the bathrooms. There weren’t even pretzels."

Pros: "Flew on new A350, liked the seat TV, live map/camera. Good selection of entertainment."
Cons: "Website is very poor and ended up making booking through call centre and paying double what website was offering. Food & drink is expensive. In flight wi-fi expensive."

Pros: "Great service on biz class, comfortable seat, quiet airplane (A350)."
Cons: "I liked it all."

Pros: "The new Airbus A350"
Cons: "Onboard food and drink is quite expensive"

Pros: "Far better quality and value than BA, it's OneWorld partner."
Cons: "It was all good."

Pros: "We were kept informed about the delay"
Cons: "Has to wait 14 hours in Helsinki for a 25 minute connecting flight"

Pros: "The staff were thoughtful and kind. They checked on us and offered snacks and water very regularly. My favorite, though, was that the captain took the time to alert us to the sights out the window. We had closed the shades at the request of the attendants and would have missed the beauty of Greenland had he not alerted us to peak out. I appreciate that!"

Cons: "Not offered a beverage ."

Pros: "I was surprised with an amount of drinks and food provided.Everything was delicious, and we were very hungry so imagine our happy faces. The crew was professional in all ways.Flight was smooth and comfortable-applause for the pilots!"

Cons: "Whoever designed and built this airplane should literally be INDICTED - AND I AM NOT KIDDING! We were in disbelief the moment we boarded and saw the airplane. 10 people across jammed into the row??!! - and on an long international flight?? - are you kidding??!! Further, these were the SMALLEST seats I have EVER been forced to sit in. Neither I, or my friend came close to fitting. We literally had to alternate getting up and standing because we were literally overlapping each other when we sat! (His shoulder and arm were literally on top of me!!). It was so bad that when the stewardess came rolling down the aisle with her cart, I had to be aware and see her in advance so I could literally TURN MY BODY OVER TO THE LEFT HALF ON TOP OF THE PERSON SITTING NEXT TO ME SO SHE WOULDN'T TAKE OFF MY ARM AND SHOULDER. ULTIMATELY, SOMEONE, OR MORE THAN ONE PERSON, IS GOING TO GET SERIOUSLY HURT BY THIS RECKLESS, GREED-DRIVEN DESIGN!! The OVERT GREED by the airline (American) clearly reflected by this in trying to JAM as many human beings into a flight as possible like Sardines is DISGUSTING!!! You simply DO NOT TREAT HUMAN BEINGS THIS WAY!! It is also clear evidence that there needs to be tighter standards, regulations and penalties by the FAA and what is allowed by airlines. AND I AM SENDING A LETTER TO THE FAA!!!"

Pros: "Made up some of lost time from delayed departure"
Cons: "Seats cramped"

Pros: "Bulkhead seat Good choice of movies"
Cons: "Seat recline broken. Sarcastic male steward. Terrible food. Contracted Norovirus from the plane. Need to better disinfect between flights."

Pros: "the crew were very friendly, well organized. movie selection was great. meals were surprisingly good and plentyful"
Cons: "not enough leg room. and i have to point out that I am a petite 110 lbs, 5'2" woman. as soon as the person in front of me reclined their seat to either sleep or lounge, I had my food tray on my chest and the small tv screen 8 inches away from my nose. Thankfully Im small but the man sitting next to me was rather tall and had to turn into a human pretzel to fit in that seat and space allotted."

Pros: "The flight was great...the staff are wonderful people...they are so sweet and kind...they work so hard...the service was great...I love their personalities..The Movie selection was awesome...Because of my broken leg, they were there to help me right away...amazing crew...will be flying with them again in October....looking forward to flying with British Airways again... Thank you for the care... Yours Truly, Sylvia Smith..."
Cons: "I have no complaints at all...."

Cons: "No TSA pre check"

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: "We ended up being on a BA flight which was fine. Ok service, check in from London much better than USA. In flight entertainment good."
Cons: "Nonchalant crew on the way back, I asked if they had any snacks half way into the flight as I didn't eat dinner, I went to the galley and the head of customer service heard my request, looked at me and just carried on reading his paper leaving a flight attendant to offer me a small bag of pretzels , which she had to search for. Very poor"

Cons: "I wanted to go home early..... They wanted to charge me 400 dollars to change my booking"

Cons: "The movies did not play on my screen. I tried to use the screen on the seat next to me and the movies quit in the middle. It was very annoying."

Cons: "I booked this through Finnair and it was a British Airways code share .I was unable to get the record locator for BA and could not check in prior to getting to the airport ."

Pros: "Good service...."

Pros: "Staff as always is polite"
Cons: "The man sitting next to me required two seats. The arm rested had to be lifted to my seat to accommodate him. I complained but the flight was full and my seat could not be changed. I was told that British Air policy was not to require extraordinary over weight people to buy two seats. No, instead the person next to that overweight person has to suffer. A very stupid and unfair policy. As a result I will never book Finnair or British Air again if I can avoid it."

Pros: "I flew with American to London and with British in the way back... British air is such a nicer experience from the food, to the crew, to the entertainment."

Cons: "I am 6'1" tall. Seats were designed for 5'1" persons."

Cons: "We were unable to find a row of seats to more comfortably facilitate traveling with a baby and a toddler as seats that should have had a cot or extra seating didn't have the cot and were sold out for an additional fee before we had the chance to. Discussing this with the staff at check0in and at the gate, made no difference as they had no knowledge of what was available on that particular flight. Every time I fly with American I'm reminded of why I don't like the airline and I will do my best to avoid them moving forward regardless of competitive ticket pricing."

Cons: "15 hours before the flight, I was locked out from the website to check in and secure seats. I then called British airways to do so and after 15 min of the agent trying to get seats, she told me that there was a shutdown and no passengers were able to do so and everyone had to book seats at airport. When I got to Heathrow, the agent told me that was not true and everyone was able to book online.. Misleading!"

Pros: "The inflight movie selection."
Cons: "The uncomfortable chair."

Cons: "Never picking up garbage (telling us the next crew will do that) The cabin a mess. NO LEG ROOM. Terrible."

Pros: "Service was great"

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "Food wasn't very good"

Pros: "Flights were on BA not Finnair"
Cons: "Ba website did not work properly."

Pros: "geting off"
Cons: "To cramped so I will go back to Delta"

Pros: "it was fine"

Cons: "My Finnair flight from London to New York was cancelled due to weather conditions in New York. I understand that. What made me very frustrated and angry is that when I contacted Finnair to reschedule the flight I was told the flight was managed by British Airways and I would have to contact them When I contacted British Airways they said it was a Finnair flight and I had to contact them. I finally had no recourse but to buy another ticket through another airline. I feel that I should be reimbursed for my Finnair ticket from London to New York! I paid for a flight I never took. (The Finnair flight from New York to London was fine.)"

Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. Pre boading not enforced, all passengers boarding at the same."

Pros: "Although I booked this as Finnair, it was actually a British Airways flight, as I knew it would be. And it was fine--I don't think Finnair gets much credit, but whatever. I'd actually have liked to travel with someone more exotic!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I booked this trip thinking it was with a European carrier - I had specifically wanted to avoid an American carrier. I was unable to confirm my flight online and had to ring because at NO POINT was I sent info that it was AA and not Finnair. I was charge almost $60 for this service because I did not have the right references sent with my confirmation email. T he seats were cramped and uncomfortable, I was unable to pick my seat on any flight and despite my request could not change it. Boarding at Chicago was a farce, none of the ground crew seemed to be in charge and we barely started boarding with 20 mins to takeoff. Needless to say the flight left late and we had to wait to take off, and of course had to wait to land in London."

Cons: "experience was awful. Helen Rowena Boysen"

Pros: "The crew was amazing. It was a long flight and they kept bringing us drinks and snacks for 10+ hours."

Pros: "Arrived on time. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Nothing really."

Pros: "Great crew. Lots of refreshments."

Pros: "This was actually a USAirways flight now rebranded as American. A lot of people had to check baggage. There was no in-seat video entertainment. The crew were surly."

Cons: "No individual air controls for each seat"
