Airline reviews

Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Please make an announcement to passengers to not be dismissive if their surroundings. Passenger in front of me was has no regard for people behind him. Kept throwing himself in seat aggressively which cause water/food on trail to fall over. Thanks"

Pros: "Wonderful on board service from the crew"

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

Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "Crew, food, boarding, service"
Cons: "Very tight seats. Not enough of leg room"

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: "friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "organise priority exit when we have a delayed arrival, so that those who have a train or flight connection can get out quicker"

Pros: "Crew Was very friendly , smiley, and welcoming."
Cons: "Movie selection could have been better, but was ok."

Pros: "Everything!"

Cons: "Boarding time needs to be longer. Also, too little time between connecting flights."

Cons: "Swiss precision"

Cons: "45mn late"

Pros: "Really good flight. Clean,on time, efficient. Early arrival even"

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: "Good crew."
Cons: "The flight itself was pleasant. But a 3 hour delay, because of technical issues on the incoming flight from Geneva? Why didn’t they send another aircraft?"

Pros: "There was too little space between rows. Sometimes it was too difficult to watch a movie because the screen was too close to my face."

Pros: "Lots of room because plane was half full"
Cons: "I arrived almost early enough to get on an earlier flight. I think if I'd pleaded a bit more..."

Cons: "It was delayed"

Pros: "Great seat, wide enough for an adult and a 2 year old to sit in. Food was nice, but didn’t make you go wow."
Cons: "TV was a bit small"

Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable, smaller aircraft"

Pros: "Good food for economy , good selection of new releases movies included , small seat and leg room but not terrible"
Cons: "Made us check our carry on bag because it was too heavy and was told to get it from baggage claim on our connecting flight for it to never show up then waited in line for missing luggage for them to tell us they transferred it and would be waiting at the final destination"

Pros: "Our flight on Swiss was excellent. On time, courteous crew, and loved the morning Croisant and the chocolate. As my wife and I are both retired flight attendants with TWA and American, we tend to notice customer service at all levels of an airline’s operation. Both our flight out of LHR to GVA and our return were smooth as can be. Nice job, Swiss!"

Pros: "Crew memebers were so kind at all times. Even thou’ it was a short flight they gave us a free snack and beverages AND a bonus chocolate!"
Cons: "Nothing it was all great! Even music was playing while we waited on the plane."

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 airline crews politeness & courteous comfortable seating were helpful on meal selection."

Pros: "I’ve flown SWISS Air twice in the past 6 years and I’ve never had an issue, always a great experience!"

Pros: "Friendly and high quality service"

Pros: "Good clean service that Swiss is known for."
Cons: "There’s never overhead space for carryon. Ever since they went to lift, I have had to put my luggage in a row near the rear, making me wait until the plane almost complete Disembarks before able to get the bag."

Cons: "I bought economy class ticket! (I have a printout ticket as proof!) When I went to the airport i had a VERY UNPLEASANT surprise. I had a 23kg bag. Bording stuart said that my ticket is ECO LIGHT class and I don't have the right to any baggage. Worst thing of all was that the reason of my trip to Paris was my sister's graduation and half of the baggage was my formal wear and other half were presents for my sister! Your lack of transparency ruined one in lifetime special event- MY SISTER'S GRADUATION. I am very glad that you asked me for my opinion because I am using my free time to demand full refund, even tough the damage is much bigger than the cost of the ticket and it's irreplaceable."

Pros: "Most everything about the process."
Cons: "Person in front reclined chair fully and left virtually no room for sitting!"

Pros: "typical Swiss quality"
Cons: "Delay. Missed train connection. Business class went to row 15 To then leave it empty"

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: "I ordered in advance 4 seats for my family, paid 100$ to SWISS 19/10/16.Boarding crew refused to give us the seats sold to us.The family was divided into 3 and 1.Only after my strong refusal, the seats were were granted.During the dispute about the provision of already purchased seats, SWISS crew member threatened to call the police. We entered the plane last.Our seats not were ready and we were forced to do it all alone.Rudeness and unprofessionalism of SWISS crew.The end of the vacation was spoiled. For what I paid to SWISS 100$ in advance(10 monthes)? I believe, if SWISS could not provide the paid service as expected, SWISS must return the money(100$) and apologize. Nobody apologized in Zurich, threatened to invite the police. Bad crew, bad service."

Pros: "We were very impressed by our flight with Swiss. The staff speaks impeccable English, there is much more leg room than on flights with American companies, and it is so pleasant to get pillows, blankets, headphones, drinks (including wine), snacks and 2 meals on our international flight and not feel nickle and dimed the way we do now on domestic flights."

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

Pros: "Boarding without frills. On-time departure. Overall good food. Great cabin crew; they took care of a toddler with a fever and her mother."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything was great :) food is good, crew is perfect"

Cons: "Swiss staff was not helpful at all at Zurich airport. I wanted to purchase a day pass in the Business class lounge. They said i could do that but need to do it online. When I couldn't get my device to bring up the right screen they said they couldn't help me. Bad customerbaervixe"

Pros: "The aisle seat I purchased wasn't miserable like so many economy seats are. But I did have to pay for it!"
Cons: "I had such a miserable experience getting to Florence on Swiss Air that I sent a letter of complaint WHILE ON VACATION!! Really. It was a nightmare... not the way you want to start a vacation. I had difficulty booking my daughter's seat online for the return, but didn't have access to phone service while abroad. In my complaint letter to Swiss Air I requested they place us together. I never got a response and upon check in, they had my son and me in our purchased seats and my daughter at the back of the plane. I asked them if they could do anything about it (I was even willing to give up my seats to move to the back...) yet no one seemed concerned or interested in helping to make this work. They also had no knowledge of my complaint or appeared concerned about my prior experience. I'm so over Swiss Air. My experience with the employees on the phone prior to my first departure, the lack of response to my email, and a disinterested and inattentive staff on my return, have all convinced me to choose a different airline next time."

Pros: "On time, even arrival 20 min earlier, very courteous and professional cabin crew comparing to the rudeness of Lufthansa one. Soft landing."
Cons: "At LHR terminal 2, same gate A, B, for 2 different flights which lead to confuse many passengers. Better signing and Public Announcement is needed. Queuing 1:30h for tax refund is totally unacceptable and leads to give up to claim your rights."

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: "fast boarding, great crew."
Cons: "when is SWISS going to change serving something else rather than this chocolate bread during morning flights?"

Pros: "The new 777-300 is great. besides the disorganized boarding, everything else was great!"

Cons: "Good food"

Cons: "Was a good experience"

Pros: "Comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I' not sure which flight this relates to. I've taken economy and business class and clearly the business class is better but economy is fine. The crew were good in both classes and whilst the food in business was better I didn't have a problem in economy either."
Cons: "Check in was fine and very friendly but boarding could be better particularly in business. At Heathrow it was a bit chaotic as all classes seemed to be mixed up so it was difficult for priority passengers such as disabled to get through everyone crowded up to the desks and the same applied for business class as well. The IFE wasn't too bad but it could be better. Bahrain airport is a mess and the boarding gates seem to be more like corridors with seats in them so it's difficult again when they call for business class passengers as unless you are already at the front you have to try to work your way through. I believe the airport is being rebuilt. If so then things will probably improve. I'm not sure why there needs to be 2 security checks within a few yards of each other when transiting between flights. they don't have this problem in Doha."

Pros: "Business class was really enjoyable with a flat bed. Food was delicious and served with a smile. Crew was helpful and easy to talk to."
Cons: "Entertainment and selection of movies could be improved. The Hollywood movies did not work, others did."

Cons: "Better coordination between stewards."

Pros: "Customer service of vayama they did our request by providing wheelchair for my mother and flight was superb for Gulf air"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "The food could be better."

Cons: "Lovely new Dreamliners. Best TV screen but poor content/choice of shows. Rest good."

Pros: "Friendly and helpful flight crew Good food Free movies to warch"

Pros: "Trip from Bangkok to Bahrain flight was so good - service perfect - crew wonderful"

Pros: "Food was pretty good"
Cons: "The aircraft left an hr late with passengers waiting on board ..no alcohol on the flight which to be fair I knew was their policy..Then they couldnt get the doors open at the destination Airport leaving us onboard for 45 minuutes at the gate..I also found the cabin unbearably hot with no individual air con controls..the crew were also nowhere to be seen most of the flight so had to get up frequently for water and inconveniencing the passenger next to me"

Cons: "."

Cons: "Extremely poor movie/TV choices Crew didn't smile much!"

Cons: "onboard entertainment is very limited"

Pros: "The price was excellent, the (A330) plane was in good clean condition, they provided with blankets, pillows and headphones. The food was better than most airlines I have travelled on and the entertainment was okay but not as good I would have wanted. Overall, I would say 4 stars all round."
Cons: "Entertainment could have had more on offer, the plane was generally cold, an on-board wifi on their major (A330) planes would have been helpful and upgrades to their short haul planes would be good too."

Cons: "Too much money taken by the airline even though I had bought insurance"

Pros: "Crew .. warm food .. the pillows already on seats .. coffee is lovely .."
Cons: "Smells .. sick peoples must learn how to cover there mouth .. Lots reasons of infection .. must clear the bad smell .. Should add spider solitaire at AirGames list .."

Cons: "Their price and services"

Pros: "fast boarding, got the luggage quickly."
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "The Staff were very courteous and worked efficiently during serving food and prompt when called for assistance."
Cons: "On my way from London to Bahrain the flight was having two toilets in non working condition through out the flight. So only two were operational. Whatever the issue was never fixed till we reached Bahrain."

Pros: "Flight was delayed, so missed the connection. Was made to wait at Bahrain for more than 24 hours without any accommodation. Will never travel by gulf air again. It's the worst airline in the world."

Pros: "The crew was efficient and anxious to please. The flight was on time."

Cons: "Traffic and crowd"

Cons: "The crew wasnot welcoming and helpful"

Pros: "Gap between both flights was tight.But very helpful ground crew & flight crew"

Pros: "Liked the professional boarding Very punctual take off & landing Very polite ground crew & helpful"
Cons: "Seats were cramped on the return leg Miles not automatically added.Has to be done at the airport .Forgot to do it with all the hustle & bustle. Food service by crew could be better.Needs more finesse System did not allow to order vegetarian food. Food not very palatable"

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Attitude of staff at Gulf Air in Manama is rough and don't extend any assistance. Flights delay is very common.....too bad. Will never ever choose this poor Airline again."

Pros: "being on time"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "The flight delayed for more than two our. I bought another ticket (one way) to manamah with Oman Air for $230. I called gulfair to refund the ticket but they asked me to contact Kayak. Please do the nessasry Regards Fahad"

Pros: "Everything!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "The food is horrible."

Pros: "Crew and boarding crew and plane crew were great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for an hourl plus. Spent more time in airport than in air."

Pros: "I really liked the crew treatment, they were polite and we well served by them ."
Cons: "The long queue infront Gulf air check in desk in the airport! People who came early that had to wait for a long time to have their boarding pass! I think increasing the number of employers in that area will be a great idea ."

Pros: "Service in the plane"
Cons: "The crew at the check in were mean... bizarre regulation that don't apply to any other airline. Refuse to give a wheelchair for an elderly claiming she has to book it in advance.. what if the person broke their legs that day??? None sense. And the baggage regulation are just not clear and confusing."

Pros: "More selection where you can pick and choose your tv shows or movies."
Cons: "Entertainment selection was poor. Only have a few selections on board for a 10 hours fight. Need more movies. Food was okay, didn't get to choose what meal to eat."

Pros: "The security check was horribly handled. There was a chance for missing the flight."

Pros: "We landed safely and everyone got off the plane."
Cons: "Gulf air has decided to do "silent boarding" - so we were late boarding our flight because even though we watched the gate- it never filled up, there were never lines, no announcements, no lights signaling anything. Our captain took VERY sharp and hard dips and turns during our flight. He even dropped altitude so quickly that some women on board yelled out in terror. No announcements were made as well by the crew or captain regarding these very uncommon experiences of turbulence or announcements to remain with ones seat belt fastened. Finally, the man driving the bus from the plane to the door at Manama airport was too busy talking to the men who decided to sit in the front seat of the passenger bus and not look on the road in a busy air traffic area. I'm literally blown away at how everyone was safe and made it from point a to point b. I'm also horrified at the lack of communication or safety precautions."

Pros: "Very smooth flight and excellent service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "On time flying, entertainment"
Cons: "The custurd sandwich, they could have just simply serve cheddar cheese sandwich. He kids meal was very good though"

Cons: "Staff..."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "American Airlines was late, so Gulf Air just washed their hand off us. We were left to fend for our selves. Gulf Air is the world's single most worst airline. It was only due to the wonderful service of American Airlines and then British Airways that we could reach Delhi."

Pros: "Quick Check in"
Cons: "The crew were not nice. They dont even pick up garbage during the 9 hour flight. They give you a gallon of water in a huge bottle without a glass and you are on your own."

Cons: "somebody lost my bag with ski boots, never again with polish air lines,NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!"

Cons: "Delayed without explaining?"

Pros: "The connecting flight from Milan was almost an hour late. But the ground staff were very helpful and professional and help me to board the flight, in a haste. The flight crew were friendly and professional. The food was delicious and sufficient. Overall very happy with my first flight in LOT."
Cons: "Knowing that the incoming was late ground crew could have been better prepared with a motorised transport in the airport (instead of me running out of my breadth). The onboard entertainment could have been better. WiFi in plane would be nice. But these are suggestions. I was overall very happy."

Pros: "Direct fly"

Cons: "Delayed by one hour"

Pros: "One stop flight, faster than a boat."
Cons: "Lost luggage, delayed our plans for 3 days(all luggage was lost!!!)"

Pros: "Crew not good"

Pros: "All went smooth bH"

Pros: "Generous service, excellent vegetarian meals (my special order), excellent telephone help prior to flight."

Cons: "Flight could not taken off in 7 hours delay"

Cons: "Soft drinks should be free of charge"

Pros: "Everything went good. Thank you."

Cons: "We had seats not together. As more of passengers. Only asking to change seats helped"

Cons: "More communication about flight delays at the airport."

Pros: "The staff was amazing"

Pros: "New plane with charger available at every seat even in the economy class. Clean interior, polite crew"

Pros: "All Good"

Cons: "Lines for checking in and for boarding were very disorganized and people were butting in front of people who were there longer. The plane seating was too close to each other. More room is needed."

Pros: "The only good thing was that it got me from Point A to Point B and my bag wasn't lost or damaged."
Cons: "The seats are so incredibly small for a long haul flight. Two people must compete for shoulder space, as there simply isn't enough room for both to sit back completely. Constant elbow issues and a feeling of being locked into a small space. I've never been so happy to exit from a flight. Note that on the JFK-BUD-JFK route, LOT subcontracts to a low-cost Portuguese airline, so this plane isn't configured for a trans-Atlantic flight, at least not for a minimal level of comfort. Never again. Pay more for a decent seat on another carrier! And take a large bottle of water, as they're not at all generous with the water, soda, and juice. My seatmate and I were parched and couldn't wait to clear customs so as to buy a bottle of water."

Cons: "The flight was delayed about 30 minutes"

Cons: "They kept changing departure time from Warsaw to Lviv , and totally we were stocked at airport for 4 hours. Lot didn't provide any drink or food, and also they didn't give us any information about our flight, they just ignored us. We were very frustrated, our kids were hungry and thirsty but nobody from LOT company didn't care about it. They even didn't say "sorry " . I will not recommend this airline to my friends or to somebody else, just be careful with this airline."

Cons: "flight delayed and no information was being given!"

Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "We took off and landed an hour late than planned. Since we came-in late we waited additional two hours until we were able to get off"

Pros: "Arrived on Time"

Cons: "The service was terrible. The flight went AOG, but not until midnight. We all sat around with barely any info all night long. Finally at 11:30pm they put out some water and said sandwiches but I did not see any. LOT Polish service was VERY disappointing. I cancelled my flight all together on them."

Pros: "The boarding process was efficient and the flight crew was very courteous."
Cons: "Not much room in Business Class."

Pros: "Crew was friendly, cabin was as expected. Luggage arrive safely and on time (was a little worried it would not show, because online checkin said I had to pick up luggage and recheck before flight) (Virgin tagged it to go all the way through). So did not gav any issue."
Cons: "Flight was one hour late. No food service or entertainment for this flight, but was as expected."

Cons: "The 787 is a very good plane, but I could do without the footrest underneath the seat; it just got in the way."

Pros: "Good snack"
Cons: "Beverage selections are limited"

Pros: "Shortness of that flight"
Cons: "I don’t remember"

Cons: "I didn't like that there was no Wifi, the seats were a bit small, and the connecting flight to moscow was only about 40 mins from the arrival, and we were delayed and I missed my connection. They should not plan connections this close."

Pros: "Helpful Crew"
Cons: "Messed up security clearance arrangement. Total confusion about secondary clearance requirement, only informed at boarding at gate that a lot of travelers needed secondary clearance. No objections to secondary clearance, but procedure a joke. Machine was half way down the terminal. Half hour wait, and you could have left your carry on with somebody else, get cleared by machine, pick up your bag again and get on board."

Pros: "Quick, efficient check-in and boarding, friendly staff, clean airplane."
Cons: "(there was nothing I disliked... a good experience overall)"

Pros: "Service in business class."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew on this flight was amazing. Very attentive, courteous and professional!! The crew was in no way responsible for how terrible this airplane was, and they did a wonderful job of making sure everything was taken care of."
Cons: "The plane was terribly old and decrepit. None of the television screens worked, the airplane was dingy, brown, worn out looking and just overall gross. This flight was operated by a company called Privilege Style, and while the crew was fantastic everything else was terrible. The food was pathetic and nasty; they served breaded chicken that was so soggy it resembled a used dish cloth. It came with soggy oily vegetables and a cake that had condensation all over it. The only redeeming thing on this flight was the free Polish beer (it was warm). The flight we took going to Poland was on one of their new Dreamliner planes and it was amazing! We were so disappointed with this return flight as it was a stark contrast to the wonderful experience we had coming to Poland. I hope in the future they can discontinue use of these older planes, as it makes flying much more aggravating."

Pros: "ok"

Pros: "Flights ran on time."
Cons: "Slow cue at check-in. Boarding gate miles from Security, 25mim walk. Plane aged. No food, tea in a flimsy paper cup. No entertainment."

Pros: "Getting iff"
Cons: "Overcrowded Poorly organized"

Pros: "food prices, all on time"
Cons: "entertainment"

Cons: "Cheap airline that is priced like a major airline. They charge for checked in luggage on flights between different EU countries. Major airlines don't do that, so check the fine print before purchasing."

Pros: "Relatively new aircraft with not-bad room between the rows. Water, coffee and tea offered gratis, otherwise pay for snacks, but prices not bad. Good flight for a budget airline. Twi toilets for a full plane a bit ridiculous, but the flight was only 2 1/2 hours, so no big lines."

Pros: "Simple, quick service."
Cons: "Very basic service but not really any issues."

Pros: "Cabin crew were at least apologetic after the delays and shambolic boarding process (see below)."
Cons: "Chaotic flight that was delayed due to overbooking and the failure to deal with it in any competent way. An apparently overbooked flight led to a cascade of errors - there seemed to be a total breakdown in communication between the gate/services team and the ground crew, etc. as to where the extra passengers came from and what could be done with them. They even admitted to their being many misunderstandings among the LOT staff themselves as they struggled to rectify the situation. The worst outcome was that we got trapped in the bus, right outside the plane, for 30 minutes. They had sent us to board while back at the gate they were still arguing over who should actually be on the plane. During this time there was no sign of the cabin crew at all. After 10 minutes or so the driver left to go and have a chat with some of the ground ops team and we were left on our own as the windows steamed up and small children started to cry. The whole thing was an appalling exercise in miscommunication - both between staff themselves and between staff and passengers."

Cons: "I fly 35 years at least 2 times a year to different companies. For the first time in the life of the company flew Lot (and the last) and was unpleasantly surprised: 1. The stewardesses did not hide their antipathy towards the native speakers of English and Russian (they were scornful and rude), although they were friendly and attentive to the passengers speaking Polish, 2. The food is tasteless and small (I have ordinary needs)."

Cons: "No good meals available in the flight."

Pros: "Wondefull flight crew."

Pros: "Service, listening to my questions, overall!!"

Cons: "Seats were too small."

Cons: "I needed wheelchair assistance due to a back injury. The person that picked me up at the aircraft from London was terrific, l was taken to the terminal and told that another team member would take me to the aircraft. No one showed up until the aircraft was fully boarded, then he left me at the beginning of the ramp instead of wheeling me to the aircraft. I was very disappointed! I was so disappointed I didn’t wait for a pickup at the airport in Amsterdam. I regret it, because I’m in so much pain!"

Cons: "Because of inability to load baggage at LHR we were over an hour late departing. Upon landing in ORD the CSM noted that many bags did not make flight. This is very poor service."

Pros: "Service and staff were great."
Cons: "Food not so good. Storage locker against the side bulkhead was constantly difficult to open."

Cons: "The unpleasant unhelpful staff"

Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"

Cons: "always late"

Cons: "Completely messed up departure time, poor maintenance and old aircraft. Grumpy service"

Pros: "Only thing I liked was the travel time to destination as it was the quickest flight due to circumstances and time I needed to travel."
Cons: "I didn't like near enough everything about this flight."

Pros: "Thai airways much better"

Pros: "Quick, smooth flight"
Cons: "Landed over 40 mins ago and still waiting to get off the flight."

Pros: "I did get to Glasgow"
Cons: "Boarding by bus, late, expensive, bag fee, no drink."

Pros: "New plane. Adequate comfortable seating. Relatively punctual."
Cons: "You have to buy even water so it feels like a low cost airline."

Cons: "I think it's a real shame that BA have gone budget and no longer offer complimentary food on their shorter haul flights. At least they're using M&S though."

Pros: "Heathrow T5 bag drop and terminal in general was great as usual."
Cons: "Iberia are a poor codeshare partner. Old plane, tacky interior, and just like BA they make it difficult to get even a glass of water without paying extra."

Pros: "I like the comfort of the BA planes even for such a short hop, efficient service and fast."
Cons: "Shame the service no longer includes a complimentary snack/drink, especially as the prices have not changed. Doesn't encourage brand loyalty, although on that route BA sadly have the monopoly."

Pros: "Food"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No food Uncomfortable seats Rude staff Very overpriced"

Pros: "flight crew were very friendly and mostly helpful, except when they could not locate my meal, and i ended up getting about half of what the other diners got."
Cons: "boarding seems intent of creating class divisions. it may be useful for profitability, but it seems quite weird in today's world. food was significantly worse than the food on another flight i had taken the same day, delhi to london. seats are a bit janky and we had problems with the seat ahead reclining too much and not being able to be held upright."

Pros: "Nothing really. Except the general BA at T5 which is fine"
Cons: "Everything about the flight. From low quality, poor breakfast on Club cabin to poor service and no entertainment on the flight. It is not certainly value for money for traveling Club."

Pros: "The crew were fantastic, the seats were spacious but not overly comfortable. Flight was punctual and bags came quickly."
Cons: "Lounge was overcrowded, the plane was very old (the headrest of the man next to me fell off) with no entertainment whatsoever"

Pros: "All perfect !!!"

Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Delayed flight. Only accept credit cards on board."

Pros: "Quick flight. Nice crew"
Cons: "The fact that there was no free food and drink on the flight."

Pros: "Flight took off on time and arrived 10 minutes early."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Smooth boarding and on time on both flights. Food was decent."
Cons: "(1) Some in-flight entertainment issues which meant it wasn't working for about 30minites. (2) I know the crew have a hard job and have many difficult passengers to deal with. Even so I do find there's a bit too much "attitude" shown by some members of staff. On my flight to London, a mother with a young child wanted hot water and the staff (middle aged British male) was trying to tell her repeatedly she should say "please" when she asks. She was asking politely so this behaviour was rather poor in my view."

Pros: "The aircraft"

Pros: "Cabin staff"
Cons: "Cabin was shoddy. New beverage service!"

Pros: "Food awful no entertainment"

Pros: "The flight was so somth"
Cons: "The crow service was so bad"

Pros: "The payment system was down so it was painful and slow"

Cons: "None of them reminded me of the fact that I need a transit visa for the UK (I mean, isn't it rediculous? I am just staying there for 5 hours). When I called in for cancellation at the airline, they told me to talk to my agent company Cheaptickets. Cheaptickets simply told me that I can't get any money back, and was extremely arrogant and impatient. Later (for a week I was trying to save this ticket by talking to the British Embassy to see if I can get the visa done and they are just "we can't help you") they told me that I can get a refund of like 30 SGD and they promised to send me an e-mail about it. They never ever did. I also tried to change the dates and the handling fee + fair difference was like 1200 SGD (are you joking?) they simply told me, prices fluctuate... Finally I went to the check in counter desperate. The staff even refused to talk to me about my situation because simply, "there is no BA ticket office in Singapore" and told me to call them. I said the office is closed, but they are like, yeah just call them. They swept me off like a moron. Extremely arrogant, impatient, insensitive. I paid 900 SGD for nothing and a whole week of anxiety and regret. I will never take this and I will never use Cheaptickets or Kayak"

Pros: "I received an email cancelling the flight before I left home."
Cons: "Last minute cancellation of the flight by BA meant I was unable to attend the event I was booked on. Have found service has definitely declined on recent BA flights I've travelled on. Check in staff are good though."

Pros: "Staff are excellent, really friendly, respectful service. Food (expensive as always on planes) but excellent quality, really good choice to use M&S as providers. Excellent communication from pilot and cabin staff on delays before takeoff."
Cons: "System for paying by food with Avios points did not work. Plane left almost an hour late due to delays (landed 30 mins late)."

Pros: "Decent seat pitch on the relatively new a320 configuration. Lost my bag for a weekend trip, unapologetic ground handling staff, waited 90 mins to report it and no gesture of goodwill to remedy the situation."

Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "Rude, entitled and lazy employees. Zero recognition of Emerald status. Forced me to check my bag which fit the onboard limits and flew on 3 flights, incl one on BA - on this very same itinerary."

Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "Seat was exactly the same as coach. My vegan meal consisted of 2 tiny plates of fruit and a soggy, egg-free omelet with unflavored tofu and no salt. Disgusting. Staff was snobbish and full of it. No on-board entertainment, no wifi, no reading material except the magazine. Oh they did try to sell me duty free. AVOID."

Pros: "Cabin crew always professional. The cabin was fresh and new."
Cons: "the leg room In club Europe is appalling. No premium feel at all."

Pros: "Food on board was tasty"
Cons: "Priority boarding not clear."

Cons: "Flight delayed over an hour outward, nearly an hour flight back."

Pros: "Crew was supportive and very kind"
Cons: "Big delay due to unanounced gate for boarding. Systems at the airport were not giving the info. It took more than an hour to gather all passengers to the plane, which ended in 1hr 20 min delay."

Cons: "We sat at the runway for 1 hour"

Pros: "Quick and easy boarding, no extra charge for emergency exit seat, snack and drinks included, modern interior, on time departure and early arrival."
Cons: "People abusing the free drinks and the crew supplying them with them."

Cons: "It took ages to get everyone to board. Arrived in Amsterdam almost an hour later. BA need to either speed up the boarding process or allow earlier boarding time."

Pros: "Only scraped a two as was enough movies to watch."

Pros: "For a reasonably priced flight the comfort and free drink/snack were above average and very much appreciated."
Cons: "BA's online check in let them down though; the server kept crashing. They also wanted to charge £15 to pick one's seat, even at point of check in, a tacky ploy to pad profits. Forgiven on this instance as the flight was only 50 min, but would make me think twice for any longer distances."

Pros: "The seats were quite roomy and very comfortable. The flat bed with cozy duvet was great for actually getting some sleep during such a long flight. The amenity kit with Aromatherapy products was also really nice and I liked that they had separate kits for men and women."
Cons: "I was surprised that the crew didn't offer water proactively as I'm used to that on all long haul flights. I had to go ask several times for water. The meal services seemed quite slow and protracted as well."

Cons: "The seat was little more than a seat in economy as to width, leg room , etc. Really not worth the cost of a business class ticket. Whilst the service was good , the food was mediocre. This was our first [ and possibly last] business class flight with BA and will stick with our usual business class airlines e.g. Qantas, Virgin Atlantic , Delta, Fiji Air, Virgin Australia ,etc."

Pros: "Comfortable seats; good choices of movies and decent food."
Cons: "(1) Water dripping from overhead luggage area during takeoff; we were told it was due to condensation. It was a good amount of water! (2) One of the male staff would not let us stand near the toilet area and not so politely asked that we go back to our seats. It was a long file so to be told you can't stretch your legs is unacceptable."

Pros: "Punctuality, boarding, baggage handling."
Cons: "The space is very limited - almost no knee space and huge boxes under the seats. Crew not very attentive. Sandwich for dinner."

Pros: "The actual flight was fine"
Cons: "The lack of any concern or effort on Iberia's part once in Havana sans luggage was disgraceful. We were without any personal items or medications for SIX DAYS of a cycling holiday, because Iberia failed to answer the phone or deliver the baggage. We were obliged to take a 6.5 hour journey from where we were on day 6 (rural Cuba) to personally collect the baggage from Havana airport ourselves. NOT okay, Iberia/BA. Never again."
