Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "aircraft was new, clean, and with many new amenities that are appreciated - device charging, Internet access. The crew was great."
Cons: "The seats are tough after a few hours of siting. Children screamed throughout the flight. To the crews credit, they recognized the issue, and suggested a move to empty seats. However,there was a screaming and coughing child behind these seats also. Perhaps grouping families to a section would help?"
Pros: "The usual efficient, friendly WestJet crew. Nice to fly in one of the new Dreamliner. Super smooth landing."
Pros: "Very informed process of why delays were happening."
Pros: "Premium seats were more comfortable, crew in our section was great, newer airplane was lovely, food and drink were really good."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything within WestJet’s control that was bad."
Cons: "Minor point. They boarded the plane very early. We got to the gate 1/2 hour before departure, and were almost the last ones to board."
Pros: "Didn't see much of crew. Food was crazy expensive for what it was."
Cons: "Better food for price, or an option to pre-book a proper meal at time of buying ticket. Plane was cold and no blankets."

Cons: "It was so cold!!"

Pros: "Boarding was easy, crew was pretty friendly and we reached London an hour early which was brilliant."

Pros: "i was pretty comfortable being in an aisle seat"

Cons: "Plane was old, seat didn't recline, no tv screens in front of seats, temperature was freezing (but in fairness I was at the emergency exit) and worst of all NO MEAL?? ON A NINE HOUR FLIGHT? Arrived very hungry."
Pros: "Boarding went well. Although it was a full flight, they asked for volunteers to check in hand luggage (free of charge) I did, trying to help. But once I picked up my luggage and got to destination point, I noticed that 2 small items (gifts for family) had been pilfered. Not happy and will not volunteer to help again."
Cons: "No food on plane, no entertainment,( unless you download the app) Above pilfered items"
Pros: "Neriande (who issued the boarding passes & took checked bags) and her colleague At the check in desk were amazing - actually going behind the scenes to find a gate checked bag that had been wrongly named and was headed for Toronto when we were headed to LONDON GATWICK"
Cons: "Faulty weather radar on a stormy evening cancelled our WestJet PREMIUM ECONOMY flight. After deplaning and waiting for all passengers without checked bags to be rebooked, we eventually were on our way by car from LGA to JFK airport to meet a British Airways ECONOMY flight with only minutes to spare"
Pros: "Excellent all round. Good price. Nice seats. Excellent staff. Good boarding and disembarking. Highly recommended."
Cons: "It does not have free food and entertainment, but for the price this is acceptable."
Pros: "Staff were helpful and smiling. Good value"
Cons: "We needed a better choice of food"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff. Boarded and got off quickly. Clean airplane."
Cons: "I felt cramped in my emergency exit seat, especially having a larger size person sit next to me. My seat was not comfortable. Being tall provides no advantages on westjet. Had to look down at my phone the whole time for entertainment, neck hurt. Wont fly again"
Pros: "Kind helpful staff"
Cons: "That you have to pay for entertainment and food on long haul flights"
Cons: "24 hour delay in Calgary because of maintenance problems with the plane. Meant I lost one precious day while visiting my 91 year old mother."
Pros: "staff on airline great"
Cons: "Lost my luggage hopefully I’ll get that tomorrow. Airline charged me 70 pounds for that. Staff at customer service were not helpful at all."
Pros: "Hi. I actually am glad that the company is following up because I was having a hard time finding an email to contact. I actually came to kayak to book my ticket for Friday to go to London however when I got to the airport it says it was for Monday. Because I had to be at London the next day for a wedding i had to buy another ticket for almost 1000. I also couldn’t contact u so I’m emailing now. I didn’t get on the plane for west jet because I am already in London. I also have a screen shot that shows me that my flight details were for Friday however another email shows me that it’s for Monday. Even the workers at th airport were confused and felt strongly bad for me. I would like a full refund as well. Thank you. Please contact back. 416806-6530 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org"
Cons: "Our original flight was cancelled due to WestJet reasons (plane was not safe to fly) the following evening the flight was supposed to depart at 7pm we didn’t take off until 10:37 pm causing an arrival of 940AM into London instead of 7:23AM primarily because the crew they chose for this new flight was coming from Montreal so we had to wait for them to arrive."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Lack of maintenance. Seats did not recline, seat in front of me was broken. No reading lights available. One washroom became inoperable. Just showing a lack of maintenance or cost saving measures until new planes are delivered. Not a great impression for a carrier striving to compete against Air Canada. I would say they are competing with Air Transat."
Cons: "Big 4 hour delay caused that we missed another flight in London"
Cons: "We couldn't take the flight as Westjet could not get us there on time and would not hold the flight ...... see above"
Pros: "The flight was not cancelled in spite of poor weather"
Cons: "Flight on tarmac for 2 hours after loading passengers no word regularly from pilots or anyone for a long time. Baggage loading and no accountability for huge delays for lost luggage containers? Who is the logistics team? This is not the first time westjet has provided poor service on their international flights. Training if ground staff onsystems is poor. He guest services at tronto openly claimed they did lot know how to operate certain screens for transactions."
Pros: "We survived"
Cons: "On an 8 hour flight there’s no complimentary meal. I paid for a meal and it was worse than free plane food and starved for the rest of the trip. The chairs were horribly uncomfortable with no lower back support and we were not even given pillows and blankets. There was also no free entertainment. I rented a tablet and had it taken away an hour before landing while I was in the middle of a movie. I might have been ok with that if the flight attendant had politely asked for it back rather than rudely waving and pointing while I stared at her blankly trying to figure out what she wanted. Next time I’ll pay a bit more for an airline that respects its passengers and our comfort."
Pros: "I was traveling with my 11 month old daughter and everyone went out of their way to assist us and I didn't feel like a burden to them. When she was sleeping on my lap during the flight they even brought me my meal in portions so I didn't have a huge tray to balance over my baby."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Free upgrade and gate check!"
Cons: "No checked bags or meals for economy passengers"
Cons: "Pre-ordered meals are costlier than those purchased on board. The crew explains it by saying that they give some extra food just before landing, in lieu of that but what they give is too meagre and its not the customers choice."
Pros: "The flight attendants where really nice and so was the service wouldn't change a thing here."
Cons: "I didn't like that someone was reclining in there seat in front of me and it was so far down that it was uncomfortable even to sit in my seat or get to my table. Also was very disappointed that I had to pay for food even though it was way over 8 hours, in the end didn't even bother about food was not much of a choice. Also no TV on this long haul flight was really disappointed again, so I had to pay for a tablet was hugely disappointed. Needed more leg room was cramped on this flight."
Cons: "My ticket/reservation was not found by WestJet. I had to buy a new ticket. Flight Network or Emirates screwed up. I will need you and them to reemburse me. Please investigate."
Pros: "Very cheerful and friendly crew. Made the journey very enjoyable."
Pros: "Friendly, polite crew. Well organized boarding"
Pros: "comfortable seats friendly crew"
Cons: "no entertainment system, fee for renting tablet not enough room in overhead no complimentary food or drink service"
Pros: "Only problem is my flight didnt have screens and you had to pay for a tablet. I get screens on my flights to Edmonton and Sask for work with Westjet all the time but on a long flight to London they're majorly lacking. A basic meal over a 9.5 hour flight should be included as well."
Cons: "1 for usb charging ports though. I still love Westjet but different priorities for International flights should a no brainer."
Pros: "food was good"
Cons: "Delays in connection flight, arrival gate and departure are far away and no help from airlines."
Pros: "the entertainment system was incredible."
Cons: "It was a very long flight-- including a meal in the ticket would have made it more enjoyable."
Pros: "After our horrendous flight to America with Norwegian (never again!!!) it was refreshing to have some space and the staff was friendly"
Cons: "lnternet was very expensive ($4-5 for 30 minutes, so l did not bother) no entertainment whatsoever, but okay for a budget flight during the night"
Pros: "When they fixed the aircraft it was overcrowded but okay"
Cons: "Their dishonesty. We were delayed 25hours. I am out of pocket by several hundreds of pounds. Two months later they have still not compensated me. yet the Canadians that were on the fight have been reimbursed. The message is loud and clear if you are British do not fly West Jet"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy, and the gate attendant was quite friendly."
Cons: "Very rude crew members; delay leaving YVR. Instead of being honest and upfront about having to leave an HOUR later--and also lying by saying that we'd be flying into Gatwick in only 8.5 hours as opposed to 9.5--they made us wait in our seats while the craft supposedly waited for food to be loaded. The best line was, "Our plane will be landed an hour earlier! But because London doesn't like it when we land early, we're going to wait here for a while on the tarmac so we make it there on time.""
Pros: "Low cost, supportive seating"
Cons: "Meals are extra Arrived a bit early and had to wait about 15 min for someone to attach the gate"
Cons: "Plane needs to be upgraded, don't charge for meals or baggage"
Pros: "Very helpful! Very enjoyable flight, I was worried about my bags fitting as I took a 46L backpacking bag with me but it rit great and staff was so nice!"
Pros: "Crew were really nice and good entertainment."
Cons: "Paying for food and alcohol was a bit of a downer."
Pros: "Everything was nice."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Free bags under Corbin"
Cons: "Clean up the planes better"
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Pros: "the price was very good"
Pros: "Flight attendant , i dont her but she was sweet and attentive."
Cons: "The leg room was really tight even for short person"
Pros: "Flight was 2 hours late taking off. Completely ruined plans we had made for our first day in London"
Cons: "Experienced very rude cabin crew"
Pros: "Overall a great flight."
Cons: "Breakfast not their best meal. No tea or coffee served, very disappointing."
Pros: "Called BA (the carrier for our FinnAir flight) when I couldn't check in (didn't have a booking number that worked). Staff member did tell me that all was in order with our booking. He wasn't able to check us in anyway, as something was amiss with 'the system'. In the end all worked out fine, we just made sure to get to the airport early to make sure we got decent seats."
Cons: "A bit nerve wracking to see online that our flight information 'could not be found' when trying to check in with the booking numbers I had!"
Pros: "The flight attendants actually seemed to enjoy their jobs, they all were very nice and smiled not like other airlines where the attendants are very stiff and anything you ask for seemed to annoy them. Drinks sizes more generous than most airlines."
Cons: "a long flight from lax to lhr needs more snacks and refreshments"
Pros: "Movies Food Comfortable seating"
Cons: "Going through security"
Pros: "Nice dinner, drinks, and snack services"
Cons: "Could be a little friendlier. Lights on the whole time during a red eye was pretty annoying. Don't know if this was on purpose or a malfunction. Entertainment system was hard to see and a little outdated."
Pros: "My son and I requested gluten free meals when we reserved our tickets. When the meal was being served the crew had NO record of our meals needing to be gluten free. So we had to get one of the meals that was being offered. This was unfortunate and they made no other attempts to rectify the situation. Also, many TV monitors were malfunctioning, including mine which did not have clear sound. It was jumbled and not even clear enough to make out words in a movie or song on the radio channels. Thank you, Emily Snyder"
Cons: "No leg room"
Pros: "As always, BA did an excellent job with my evening flight from JFK to LHR. They were prompt, efficient and very helpful and although my flight was quite full, we left on time and had no issues in the air. I was very pleased with their service and especially as I paid such a low fare through Finn Air, I can't complain. This was a great option to utilise, rather than paying BA's more expensive fares. I would definitely go through this way again."
Pros: "on time friendly staff"
Cons: "more food choices"
Pros: "customer service was attentive smart yet caring."
Pros: "The energy of the crew was upbeat despite the lock of enertainment they tried their best by accommodating my various wishes."
Cons: "They were no snacks available except the ones that we had to pay for - which in fact I thought was a bit pretentious towards the passengers."
Pros: "The fact that this is the only daytime flight from Boston to Europe."
Cons: "Food was very ordinary, and drink choices may have been theoretically available but the crew did not offer the choices."
Cons: "Plane was not even parked at a gate. hat to be shuttled from plane to terminal"
Cons: "We paid extra for seat selection which was supposed to be a window seat and ended up in middle seat... not acceptable..."
Cons: "Flight was moved to LA. I paid more for this ticket so I did not have to fly out of LA. We were driven in uncomfortable shuttle vans. Check in and security were caiotic. Once I landed I found out no information was available to my sister who was picking me up!"
Pros: "Good leg room."
Cons: "I paid an extra $90 to pick this seat. On the website it looked like an exit row seat with lots of room. However I couldn't really move out of my seat without climbing over others. It was a waste of $90."
Pros: "The flight left on time, boarding was a breeze, the food was the only good food I've had while flying ever, seating was better than I was expecting, the movie selection was vast and up to date, and we made phenomenal timing in getting to our destination"
Cons: "Checking in online was difficult - it couldn't find my booking. I was panicking three hours before I was scheduled to depart! I was instructed to go check in at the desk by the service rep on the phone, which was straightforward process, but I was half-expecting being told that my booking had been cancelled"
Cons: "When I arrived at CMI no ticket was issued for my second leg, so I could not use the internal transit bus to at Terminal 5 at ORD ("for ticketed passengers only). I had to exit use the external train (which was delayed) and go through the very slow Terminal 5 security. Almost missed my ORD-LHR flight (arrived at the gate after the official closing time)"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The flight was delayed about 5 hours due to reasons no one really seemed to understand. Food was pretty bad as well."
Pros: "The flight was fantastic. It wasn't a full flight so I was moved to an exit row for more leg space. All the crew was very nice except for one lady. They distributed water often which was nice. You get options for dinner and breakfast."
Cons: "My problems began after landing. I booked a flight from LAX to Amsterdam, with a layover at Heathrow. When I originally checked in, they didn't send my things all the way through to my final destination. I had to exit the airport at Heathrow to retrieve my bag and go back through security, while trying to make my connecting flight."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable with plenty of room."
Cons: "Plane was broken and we had to wait 3 1/2 hours to get a new plane. Crew kept awkwardly mentioning during every announcement that the delay wasn't their fault... My husband's entertainment screen was broken and flickering so much that all shows/films were completely unwatchable. My screen began flickering 1/2way through a film."
Pros: "Checking was a breeze and there were no hassles getting through security. The flight was great and they even had a vegetarian option for my meal! I would highly recommend to anyone for International flight!"
Pros: "The entertainment and service was the only plus on this flight."
Cons: "When I booked my ticket a month in advance, British Airways was going to charge me extra for trying to book my seating in advance. They told me it would be free if I called 24hrs before the flight. I called 24hrs before and they told me they could not book my seats because the airport owned the seating. My first flight was with American Airlines, they gave me a boarding pass, however for my leg with British Airways, I had to go get ANOTHER boarding pass to board the flight. This airline was very inconvenient and I felt scammed booking with them. I would not recommend this airline to anyone!"
Cons: "Trying to get through airport security was an unorganized clown show with them herding groups of passengers back and forth between airport terminals resulting in many people almost missing their flights because the lines just weren't moving. Once on the airplane, the international flight had TVs in the ceiling in the row playing one in-flight movie (what is this 1995?). American is such a terrible airline. The old US airways, Lufthansa, and British Airways, are way better international flights every time I've flown with them. Personal entertainment at your seat for each flight (i thought this was standard on all international flights in the past like 10 years) and more food and drinks throughout the flight."
Pros: "On time arrival."
Cons: "Nothing really. Short flight so no entertainment."
Pros: "service . Informed the status of flight immediately. which is very useful to plan."
Cons: "If it is extra line to add for select the type of food, then it is useful the passenger. Because may some people are vegetarian then they know what they can have."
Pros: "Smooth flight given the tough turbulence."
Cons: "American Airlines caterers do not stock Tea on flight to London, UK (major up-roar). Staff was pretty grouchy."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Ancient aircraft."
Pros: "British Airways has greatly improved their customer service, the flight attendants (usually a bit gruff) were instead very kind and helpful to myself and all the passengers I saw them interact with. It really makes the flight experience better."
Pros: "Maybe they should call these flights "Byzantine Airways". Finnair doesn't fly Boston to London, so my Finnair flight was on British Airways, but I did it that way because BA wanted more money that day. As a flight, it was OK. I don't think I have much to say about Finnair."
Cons: "No entertainment system for each passenger."
Cons: "There was a terrible smell; food and drinks were served two hours after the flight started, it was dirty, cold and cramped. The whole experience was traumatising!"
Cons: "The upgrade to World Traveler Plus was $330.00 and worthless. They assured me Business Class food service. NOT TRUE. You get the usual coach class prison-type food. Non-existent flight crew service (I got one mini can of Coke the entire flight). Cramped seat next to noisy bathroom. Whole experience was bad."
Pros: "The staff were incredible and helpful. The entertainment made the flight go much faster. The airplane was comfortable and clean. Great flight"
Cons: "The passengers next to me smelled severely of body odor. I know that this isn't something the flight crew can do anything about but it made my flight really uncomfortable. Thankfully the seat next to me opened. So I loved a seat away- but even that couldn't mask the smell!"
Cons: "Nothing was dairy free, staff did not even have access to ingredients so I could check myself."
Pros: "Good food - two meals at just the right time."
Cons: "I regularly fly between Chicago and London and dread having to get on AA90. The planes are ridiculously old with barely any legroom and no seat-back entertainment. On this occasion, my friend sitting next to me, who is 5'10" had his knees right up against the seat in front. When the passengers in front reclined it was almost impossible to get comfortable. There is no seat-back entertainment. For some this may not be a big deal, what with iPads and other devices, but it speaks to AA's failure to consider it's customers comfort and ease on long-haul flights."
Pros: "I loved my experience with Finnair. Courteous staff, clean and comfortable, very accommodating. The food was EXCELLENT. I would pick my next trip based on where Finnair flies (that is how pleased I was)!"
Cons: "The fact that I never used this airline in the past!"
Pros: "It was pleasant surprise to learn that Finnair is serviced by British Airways out of the Atlanta, GA airport. The service is amazing. Having never flown Finnair or British Air, I was up for a fun new experience. British Air lived up to its great reputation."
Cons: "Everything was great. No complaints."
Pros: "First time across the Atlantic, and the British/French crew was the most polite crew ever."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and professional."
Cons: "Entertainment system had a few issues."
Cons: "If I had known when I made the reservation it was American airline would have never booked a ticket plane was dirty food terrible the whole plane needed a update"
Pros: "The 10 1/2 hour flight ended up only taking less than 9 hours since we had the wind in our favor. I loved all of the free movie selections and the service was wonderful. Great experience."
Cons: "The food."
"Service missing, for horrible and small portions"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, new plane and friendly crew."
Cons: "Food needs to improve. Pasta versus pasta is not a choice."
Pros: "The entire crew was amazing! Super comfy flight with complete lie-flat club world seats. Arrived into London feeling very refreshed!"
Cons: "Should have the seat assignments opened in advance for international passengers, especially who paid for business class."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Pros: "Everything was fairly mediocre..."
Cons: "They lost my ski bag! I had PLENTY of time between connecting flights and to not have my ski bag show up at my final destination (Munich - which was also a British Airways flight) was pretty bad. This set me back 4 hours after I've already been traveling for 20 hours! BOOO"
Pros: "Both the crew and the leg room are awesome!"
Pros: "Boarding the plane was fast and easy, crew was fantastic on and off the plane."
Cons: "Having to pay extra for the tickets to pick our seats in advance."
Pros: "American Airlines is kicking your guy's butts when it comes to comfort."
Cons: "Tiny seat for international flights is nearly inhuman! I became an overnight contortionist sensation whether I liked it or not."
Pros: "Staff were lovely."
Cons: "Old plane with an ancient entertainment system, generally cramped and uncomfortable. Paid for a specific seat but was given a different one."
Pros: "The movie selection was wonderful, as the amount of time with dim lightening"
Cons: "The temperature in the plane. It was too cold for summer clothing"
Pros: "I enjoyed all of the amenities provided on this flight, the service and food was great and I got to enjoy 3 new movies I'd been meaning to see."
Cons: "No complaints here! It was a great way to start off our vacation."
Cons: "There was a very large group of teenagers that were very loud the entire flight and disrespectful to crew and other passengers"
Pros: "Food was good. Decent movie choices"
Cons: "Plane was older and in poor repair. Our air vents and over head lights had been completely removed for our row - so we could not read or knit as others could. Seats are far to small and close together to allow for any real rest or sleep."
Pros: "Food and service"
Pros: "Crew were great."
Cons: "Food left a little to be desired."
Pros: "Great movies that were free!"
Cons: "The structure under the seats were set up super odd, so that my leg space was cut in half by a bar making it difficult to store my bag."
Pros: "Friendly people-excellent ammenitties-great flight. A new & improved airline from prior experiences."
Cons: "Nothing-all was great."
Pros: "Service was excellent, and the 777 flight was very comfortable. The flight attendants were remarkable. The ticket agents had difficulty rebooking the London to Milan leg of my flight when that flight was cancelled while I was on the way to the airport, but they were somehow able to get me onto an earlier flight than was originally offered. What I gathered was that the computer was not very cooperative. The ticket agents were incredibly helpful during this process."
Cons: "I lost my original exit row seat somehow and had to inquire into it. I think what happened was that while the ticket agents were able to rebook my cancelled London to Milan flight, my seat reservation on the Seattle to London leg got lost somehow. I suppose another passenger may have grabbed my seat during that rebooking process. I noticed the changed seat assignment only after I left the ticketing counter. I was able to get a different exit row seat (but with less leg room) assigned to me by inquiring with the agent at the gate."
Pros: "We liked that the food and drinks were included. The timing of food and lights going off and on were perfect."
Cons: "The take off was a little shaky but it was our first time on this size of plane, so that might be normal."
Pros: "Crew was great, both ground and air. Flight was on time and baggage was delivered efficiently."
Cons: "Could not get a cup of coffee. I can't believe you charge for a cup of plain black coffee. To add insult to injury, my credit cards (plural) were declined and cash was not accepted. I have not had any problem with my cards anywhere else on this trip, so the problem was not mine."
Cons: "Luggage did not make it to Paris pit on next flight which in turn was also delayed."
Cons: "I had to watch movies with barely an audible and only one side of my headphones worked. It wasn't the headphones but rather the sound in the arm where the headphones plug in. Made a 10 hour flight even longer."
Pros: "Crew on flight friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Could never find anyone and at check in counter and gates. For this reason will never fly British Airways if possible."
Pros: "Eats are comfortable"
Cons: "We were on the ground for three hours before we could take off. I ended up missing my flight from London to Madrid and my luggage got lost for a day because they switched my flight."
Pros: "Your terminal is very pleasant and not the worst to have a delay. .....and I know it's beyond your control when incoming planes are delayed"
Cons: "No gate and we were bused to get on the plane the old fashioned way......no big deal for me, but this was the return leg from escorting my elderly mother home and I was very glad she wasn't with me."
Pros: "Let’s face it, B.A has proper service with friendly crew members, offered up grade to premium economy which I normally take and was more than happy to pay for."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled, it was very difficult for me to do all rearrangements."
Pros: "The flight attendants were all very nice. The flight was on time."
Cons: "I'm told (late) that BA does not subscribe to TSA prep in the USA. That meant going to the TSA line first, being rejected, going back to check-in to know the reason, then back to the standard long line. Once onboard my seat's entertainment system dies not work. 3 reset attempted with no luck. A month ago, on another long haul flight the same happened. Food was very bad. Salmon so overdone that it was hard to cut, overcooked vegetables and some lukewarm mash potatoes."
Cons: "I was not allowed to board, because I was told I needed a Turkish Visa, even to change planes, and may have lost my ticket payment."
Pros: "After flying internationally in business class for work a number of times, this was my first international flight in economy. Exceeded my expectations."
Cons: "Second leg of flight ran late but no big impact."
Cons: "Food, artificial not tasty"
Pros: "Friendly attendants, good food and great movie selection. All flights on time!"
Cons: "Very crowded - seats are so close. I’m 5 feet 8 inches and normal weight and was squished!"
Pros: "So nice to be able to lie down fir the long distances. The food was quite good for airplane fare."
Cons: "Where do they get these movies? Surely there are good movies that are a few years old they could offer."
Pros: "Once the flight was boarding/ boarded it was seamless. The crew were more than happy to meet or exceed your needs with snacks/ meals, blankets and even drinks."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1hr and 50min and the supervisor was less than accommodating even after my wife and I had told her we had 2more connecting flights this was going to affect. Due to the delay, we spent an additional $211 on flights and spent the night at the airport."
Pros: "Smooth and uneventful flight on a 747 Staff looked very smart and were efficient"
Cons: "Check in queue, queue at gate, seat was not clean, food poor The World's favourite airline is becoming impersonal"
Pros: "more comfortable than the flight from Seattle - more leg room and larger seats."
Pros: "Flights were on time, staff was courteous."
Cons: "Food was not tasty, leg space was inadequate, air conditioning was not adjustable,"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Flight boarded late, left late, making my connection very tight and my baggage didn't arrive with me. Very inconvenient"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "No 'service'. No sign of crew. Screen didn't work. Not a lot for the money!!!"
Pros: "Friendly, efficient crew, entertainment & flight info on monitor."
Cons: "Economy seating. Quite cramped.. I would make sure to book at least Premium Economy in the future."
Cons: "Food was unappetizing and down to one choice by the time it got to us in Premium Economy. nothing premium about it."
Cons: "Massively cramped seating. BA needs to work out if it is the national carrier or a budget airline. The seat back of the passenger in front, when reclined, basically trapped me in my seat and made the entertainment screen very hard to see.The crew were efficient but quite rude to the passenger next to me when she hesitated over a meal choice. I will go quite a long way out of my way to avoid traveling on BA in the future, based on this experience."
Pros: "Got me back to the UK"
Cons: "Lack of storage around seat Lack of privacy Felt like a patient on a trolley Heavy handed portion control Club larder stocked with leftovers Poor quality tableware, that was chipped"
Pros: "Great meal service and goodies. Great entertainment, service. I think BA is the best airline to fly"
Cons: "I liked everything!"
Cons: "short connection. 1/2 of luggages didn't make it. Same instance as on outbound flight"
Pros: "The flight was great."
Cons: "London/Heathrow arrivals had us going to gate A and through all the security and then we found after going through the security check (1 hr) we saw that the gate for Flight to Venice was B gates. We are not young people, but we aren't ignorant of travel. There was a lot of running around on our part with a lot of undue stress, when we didn't have to leave the E gates at all. There were no gate assignments posted when we landed until 30 minutes out while we were running back to E gates. There is no excuse for that, except we didn't know til the last minute where we were supposed to go after asking 2 people. Why the second check for security after the states on connecting flights? Is this new?"
Cons: "After a three hour delay- the flight was canceled. Was able to rebook flight for next day but took eight calls to find a room for the night. It was a bit of a nightmare. Had pre paid for up graded seat but one was not available on the re-booked flight."
Pros: "We got to our destination eventually"
Cons: "Lack of communication. No explanations. Feelings of confusion and abandonment."
Pros: "The stewards and stewardesses treated everyone as the were sitting in the First Class section."
Cons: "The area near the top edge of wall in front of me needs cleaning."
"The plane is old and really small. Crew was great"
Cons: "It sure what could have been better other than all bulkhead seats are terrible for taller people."
Pros: "I was able to return home after my flight had been cancelled."
Cons: "While rebooking my flight from Phoenix the rebooking agent been yelling at me to pull my mask back after I was trying to answer her questions while trying talk over all the other customers. I feel that it was unnecessary and over done."
Cons: "I was in the only full row on the plane. The flight attendant waited until we couldn’t move to offer us to move to empty rows. By the time we were able to move, the other people in the row were sleeping. I wanted to stretch but couldn’t. Not a great way to start 2021."
Cons: "First time wearing face mask all the time. It was okay."
Cons: "When I arrived to check in at 5:48am for my 6:20am flight, I was treated very poorly. The lady at the counter asked me what time my flight was and I said 6:20 and right off the bat she was extremely rude and said that I missed the flight. I panicked internally and asked her how that was possible?! She said the cutoff was at 5:45am and I missed it. I asked if there were other flights available today or tomorrow and she said there was nothing she could do and that I had to call the booking company to see if they could book me. I wanted to cry because my friend had just dropped me off and I called to see if she was close enough to turn back. Luckily she hadn’t left yet. I called the booking company and they were able to book me a trip for the following day but they charged me an additional $100. I wish they had disclosed that we need to be there 45 minutes to an hour early otherwise you miss your flight. And it’s ridiculous that I had to pay an extra $100... financially it was stressful due to the covid 19 situation. I was extremely disappointed in how the lady at the check in counter at American Airlines treated me. She www extremely rude and I have never been spoken to in a way that made me feel attacked."
Cons: "Both female flight attendants were very rude and pushy, the male was the only pleasant person. Also the in flight entertainment didn’t work half the time."
Pros: "Good crew, appeared to work we’ll together."
Cons: "Could not figure out how to plug in ac for charging devices. Should have some educational label somewhere on that."
Pros: "Crew was efficient and pleasant making for a good experience."
Pros: "Nothing. I missed a family members funeral and no one at the airline cares. I ended up staying home because the flight was delayed 8 hours."
Cons: "Customer service didn't even try to find connecting flights and informed us that there were no other flights going to Phoenix. Which was a lie. I will never book with American again."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Did not cramp anywhere entire flight. Great air vent control."
Cons: "Boarding was weird. Many Passengers in the last rows put their bags up by row 20 so that made boarding and disembarking slower and harder as we had to go forward extra rows to use the back empty bins and then fight against traffic to get back to our seats. Passing bags up when leaving or waiting to"
Cons: "Other than at meals, No crew around to distribute water on a 9-10 hour flight. Crew not very nice when we were asking for water. Completely dehydrated on arrival. Ground crew very charming."
Pros: "Flight attendants were two hours late"
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Seats were comfo"
Pros: "Seats in first class were comfortable. It was nice to get a cocktail right away."
Cons: "A real snack would have been nice after boarding"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Seats were extremely uncomfortable, and hurt my back very much."
Pros: "One of the few non-stop flights between Seattle and Philadelphia. Timing is perfect if you can sleep on a red-eye flight. Fairly empty flight. enough empty seats to move and stretch out."
Cons: "No entertainment center built-in to the seats. On board WiFi can be used to access movies and other entertainment on the your own device but make sure your battery is charged and you have an external battery also since the seats don't have power. I tried to sleep but it is not easy for me to fall sleep when the seat back reclines only 3 inches so I didn't have luck taking a nap. Conclusion: I am not taking this flight any more. I will go back to taking will switch back to flying Delta even though there are no direct flights."
Cons: "Boarding could be improved if they would start boarding from the back of the plane to the front after boarding 1st class and Priority this way people would not block the passage when putting their luggage in the top compartments. The crew was not very helpful because I almost went into a hypothermia condition because the air in the cabin was extremely cold. When I ask for a blanket one of the stewardesses said that AA would no longer have blankets in flight which I prove it wrong when I saw in the flight Mai-SDQ blanquets all over the cabin. The soliton they gave me was that they would ask the crew to raise the temp in the cabin, I had to make the request three times and I had to tell the stewardess that if not raising the temperature in the cabin I could have gone into an emergency hypothermia crisis. I had to take another shirt from my carry-on to put it over my shirt to warm me up."
Cons: "Flights had to be changed due to a delay on first flight that would make it impossible to take the connecting flight. My route and airlines were completely changed, which caused a big delay in original arrival time. In addition to that, my luggage did not make it and I'm still waiting to find out where my suitcases are. Very disappointed."
Pros: "On time and the staff was great"
Cons: "I didn’t take my outbound so they cancelled my return flight without notifying me. I had to pay $200 to buy my seat back. American is about as bad as spirit.."
Pros: "For this flight I was seated in first class (I scheduled it this way; it wasn't due to a last minute upgrade) and the flight attendant was very personable and attentive :-) Service was wonderful and the meal was great! Of course, the flight attendant made sure to keep our beverages topped off as needed. It was a wonderful experience"
Cons: "The boarding process for just about any airline is nearly identical. It always seems like it takes longer to board than expected even if, in reality, it's not an unreasonable amount of time. The only think I didn't care for was that overhead storage in the area I was sitting was just about full by the time I was seated which meant that I had to store my carry on a few rows behind where I sat. This meant that during off-boarding I needed to go against the flow of people to get back to my carry on. All in all, it was a minor inconvenience."
Pros: "seats are very uncomfortable I know they can make a plane with a wide enough aisle so that you don't get hit in the arm every time the cart or anyone goes past you. why can I ride a twin otter and not need a seat belt extender and need one on American? On the return on the Airbus, the seats were a little more comfortable, but still need seatbelt extender."
Pros: "The one flight attendant that realized how shitty of a situation they placed me in."
Cons: "American Airlines made me take all clothes out of carry-on, took my brand new AWAY bags, and made me stuff my clothes and other belongings into 5 plastic bags. All because they said my bag was illegal to fly on plane (whether it was checked in or not). Turns out they didn’t have to do that. What a crock."
Pros: "Overall a great flight!"
Cons: "The idiot in front of me in row 16 dropped three drinks on my only coat, making the 19 degree temperatures where I was going even that colder. Not the airlines fault, but that’s my only complaint."
Cons: "We are letting too many people with the flu, travel. This in turn is spreading it to other places and getting too many people sick. We need to control this more. I don’t have an option after spending all this money on if I can stay healthy or not, and that is not ok."
Cons: "Luggage allowance policy was not clear, so that they can try to charge passengers extra fee. Airline blames on one another when it comes to connecting flight if we purchased a one stop flight"
Pros: "It was on time. Flight crew did a very good job and were very nice. The Meal was excellent as was the coffee. Overall, service was excellent."
Cons: "First Class needs a total redo as the seats were not as nice as on newer planes. Rest room in First Class is way too small and cramped. WiFi did not work well, and there were no individual screens on the backs of the seats. The First Class on this plane was really bad and needs some rethinking by American."
Pros: "I would like if for my return from Paris to Chicago, Chicago Seattle I would be greeted by the personal and offered to flight first class without extra charge to compensate for the bad experience on my way going in. Thank you"
Cons: "I was told I would be able to choose the seats only 24 hours before the flight by going online. I tried to choose the seats online but could not have access to the site. I then called the number provided to ask for more help, and was told that I could then only choose the seats at the check in time. I was at the airport 2 hours before the flight schedule to book my seat and was told them that I could only choose the seats at the gate. Once I got at the gate I asked the person to please give me a seat at the aisle for medical reasons but after waiting until the boarding process had started I was giving a middle seat. Not only I was treated as a stand by passenger that had not purchased the tickets I was put nt on group 8 and at the moment of boarding the gate personal aggressively grabbed my carry-on bag because they insisted there was no more spaces in the compartment above heads. Once I got inside of airplane I saw many empty compartments available for carry-on luggage. I wish I had not purchased my ticket with Iberia Airlines operated by American Airlines. It was not a good, pleasant experience and do not recommend. I wil certainly avoid in the future and not travel this way another time. Thanks"
Cons: "Our bag was never transferred to the continuing flight. Then it took a week to catch up with us. When we complained to American they just passed the buck to the final carrier, but I think the mistake was theirs."
Cons: "No food or entertainment offered at all - for a 5-1/2 hour flight. Seats uncomfortable. I don't like how it feels like you're nickle and diming us - charging for every little thing, including what seat you sit in."
Cons: "I really can't believe that this flight didn't have in headrest screens or USB power to keep you devices charged. This was a 6 hour flight across the US. If they don't provide entertainment, at least let the people charge their devices."
Pros: "Even though we were group 6 both ways, boarding was smooth and fast! We arrived early and was able to check our overpacked carry-on. Luggage was unloaded within minutes of our getting to the baggage claim. We were even able to move up to the middle of the plane coming back home!"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind!"
Cons: "Unable to sleep on the redeye from Seattle to Philly owing to a loud, constant alarm for the entire flight."
Pros: "Customer Service at SEA was great. we were checking bags directly to Madrid and they were very helpful"
Cons: "I had paid for a Bulk head seat Row 7. But since we had a in Cabin pet, my wife was moved down to Row 18 and a much smaller seat. I need to get a refund for the price I paid."
Cons: "Gate agent said there was a maintenance problem that just needed maintenance to sign off. Over heard maintenance work while boarding that could not get message on computer of problem. Pushed back and sat on tarmac for 10-20 minutes as pilot said they worked through maintenance issue."
Pros: "The employee working the desk in Seattle was great. Long lines to check in and she took the time to assign us seats next to each other. Loved the bonus of the seats being in an exit row."
Cons: "Flight changed with no notification."
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Ac was broke on plane, no wifi or entertainment options, lots and lots of being kept in the dark waiting and waiting after already boarding the plane or landing on the runway"
Pros: "The flight overall because we arrived early."
Cons: "The fact that we were on the plane and was not allowed to enjoy the entertainment as I did with my flight to Seattle."
Pros: "Very efficient boarding, comfortable coach seats, good crew"
Cons: "No food! except pretzels and sandwiches for purchase. I didn't purchase a sandwich but the two guys next to me did and were both vocal about their disappointment with what they received for $9. And they were strangers who didn't talk to each other the rest of the time, so I think they meant it. Also, entertainment: they had a movie on the pop-down screens, and 4 free movies to stream to your device using onboard wifi, as well as 2 tv shows. So maybe I'm being harsh. But it was a transcontinental flight and they didn't have headrest screens loaded with movies. Is this only for international flights? The movies were bad, or at least not appealing to me ('Keanu' and 'Zoolander 2'). It was possible to pay for additional movies, but who wants to do that? It was sort of the EasyJet model, where you get good basic service but pay for everything additional that one gets for free on Delta. Maybe that was reflected in the price I paid for the ticket, but I was expecting that AA would be in the same league as United and Delta. One nice perk: free wifi for T-Mobile customers, including me."
Cons: "My flight was changed 3 times-- always pick a window seat and was changed to aisle seat. The attitude at the ticket counter was "you're lucky to get any seat", flight was overbooked, the boarding process and deplaning were absurd with all the people bringing on way too much carry on luggage !!! It takes almost 30 min to get off the plane!!"
Pros: "It was very inexpensive and on time. And it was much more comfortable than those budget airlines like Spirit, Frontier, etc."
Cons: "The snack choice was unappealing."
Pros: "arrived alive"
Cons: "If you're remotely claustrophobic this is not the flight or aircraft you want to be in. When the flight was booked and paid for I was under the impression that I would have a seat on the plane. As it turned out in order to board the plane I had to pay extra to secure a seat. If this is not a "bait and switch" operation I don't know what would qualify."
Pros: "AA has been good to me--- Gold card a big help."
Cons: "The LAX concourse could at least 2 more coffee shops in addition to Starbucks.The wait was 40 minutes at Starbucks to get a cup of coffee!!! Get on the ball LAX!! We need our caffine in the morning."
Pros: "They switched my flight promptly when I missed my connection."
Cons: "I missed my connection for no apparent reasons. When asked for compensation they said there was nothing they could do and cited reasons Regarding the boarding and deboarding of a special needs passenger."
Pros: "Claudia was wonderful, I would love for more flight attendants to have her cheerful attitude."
Cons: "My snack was mini pretzels"
Cons: "I would not change a thing the flight was wonderful and the stewardess Virginia great"
Pros: "Seats were fairly comfortable"
Cons: "No in flight movie"
Pros: "Help that I received from check in through security to the gate was awesome. The person who checked me in offered me a wheelchair as it was a pretty long distance to the gate. I don't think that I would have made it all the way without her for thought and help! Same goes after the flight when we landed in Philadelphia. From the plane to gather my luggage and then to the place where my ride could pick me up. Awesome service. The stewards were also very helpful to keep me supplied with ice for my dogs. They get very stressed and tend to overheat. Thanks to a couple of the staff, especially, my dogs stayed very comfortable as well. Other then the fact that they got too warm a couple of times. Will definitely keep American in mind for another flight."
Cons: "I have not got a background in flying. I read the literature in the seat in front of me but I would like to have known sooner that I could turn a knob to help get cool air on my dogs. They were getting very warm and I spent a great deal of time fanning them when I could have just let the air do it's job."
Cons: "No information and made us wait about 3 hours past departure time to tell us the flight was delayed until the next day, but did not even know at what time or why!!! It really messed up it vacation since we were going to Florida for only 3 days!"
"I’m very happy! Very helpful all personals , so happy with service! A++++++! Want fly again! Highly recommended! Thanks for your service!"
"The BA staff at the rear of the plane were extremely helpful and professional. Very unfortunately for me, I had developed a cough prior to flying, and when a couple of passengers complained they handled the situation very professionally and did not make things in any way awkward for me. Would most certainly recommend BA/Iberia to my friends for future travel."
Cons: "When you book BA and end up with Iberia, that’s definitely not what you want..."
Cons: "My checked bag did not make it to London, and it’s really affected my short stay which requires a lot of traveling around England."
Cons: "Missed my transfer in London because the plane took too long to unboard and I was unable to make it to the gates of my next flight in time, despite there being over an hour connection time. The flight came in slightly late and passports were re-inspected upon unboarding which wasted a lot of time, and Heathrow is a nightmare of an airport on a good day, which made it very difficult to get where I needed to go."
Cons: "Don’t delay flights that messed my return"
Cons: "This flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Even with some departure delays we landed on time."
Cons: "The plane could have used some cosmetic detailing. The door to a cabinet in the bathroom would not shut and caused a problem with people being able to close the bathroom door."
Pros: "Arriving ahead of time"
Cons: "Too hot in the plane"
Pros: "The aircraft comfort"
Cons: "Do the checking before not 15 min before the departure"
Cons: "Delayed by an hour due to inbound delay, causing a knock-on delay with plane maintenance. While fairly comfortably seated and offered water, this still was somewhat unpleasant especially after a long-haul from Havana"
Pros: "Not a lot."
Cons: "Arriving at the gate whilst the flight was still boarding, with a boarding pass in my hand, and being told that my seat had been given to someone else because the Airline unilaterally decided that my connecting flight from Bogotá would not arrive in time. Followed by two hours of Iberia staff being surly, not looking me in they eye and doing absolutely nothing about getting me home. I have now been travelling for nearly 30 hours without sleep, am stuck in Madrid with no certainty of when or how I will get home or see my luggage again, and am seriously seriously pissed off. I do accept that things can sometimes go wrong and that it is nobody’s fault. This is definitely somebody’s fault."
Pros: "Every thing was ok"
Pros: "It was a very busy due to the fact that we,left 40imutes late and Iberia was also late when we left Madrid but they took care of me to make sure I did not miss the connecting flight"
Cons: "The food could be better"
Pros: "The food was nice."
Cons: "There was no water in business class toilets. The staff are not polite."
Pros: "The screens on a dozen seats just failed a few hours in - engineering issue. And breakfast was a cold pretzel. Food gets let’s generous on BA all the time. The crew were lovely."
Cons: "A 2330 Flight ran significantly late with a passenger delay and then de-icing. The repeated assurances of “a 10 minute or so delay” were obviously not correct. Takeoff close to 0100 was followed by drinks AND then food - my vote would be neither. Please oh please just let us sleep."
Pros: "Madrid's airport is comfortable and modern."
Cons: "Unless you paid you do not even get a seat assigned until you get to the airport. No food or even drink unless you pay."
Pros: "Heathrow Airport has a lot of stores to keep you occupied"
Cons: "Late notice of where our gate was located. By the time we got the news, we went to our gate and the people were already boarding"
Pros: "I like the staff and the generous host of them"
Cons: "The price was not matching the benefits of the ticket because it was without check in bag (luggage) and every single thing you have to pay The type of aircraft there are using its too small business class is very poor nothing to compare with other company."
Pros: "Crew was nice and I had a great flight with Iberia on my flight from Chicago to Madrid"
Cons: "I am 6 feet 180 pounds and I had absolutely no legroom was completely stuck in my seat can’t believe that a tourist class seat is this small with no legroom"
Pros: "That I arrived"
Cons: "Iberia flight was delayed by 45 minutes causing me to miss my connection from London to Dublin."
Cons: "In flight entertainment didn't work and crew wasn't concerned and didn't do anything about it."
Pros: "Airbus 320"
Cons: "Boarding process and pitiful legroom space . Iberia clearly loves showing the privileged few who have paid top dollars to be at the front , that we must be made to wait and struggle to get to our seats .Then, we have to squeeze into a tiny , pitiful space of a seat .....Even Ryanair does better !"
Pros: "They took invalid information from my travel records which resulted in my passport from 2006 being on my ticket for 2017. Aside from not helping me getting on the plane, and or another connection, they proceeded to tell me after the fiasco that they are in no way elligble to refund anyone and are a 3rd party, therefore not liable. $700 and its not there fault. They just pushed all the paperwork"
Cons: "The fact that no one in this company is liable or helpful in tge slightest after they have your money"
Pros: "seat is comfort"
Cons: "I stopped at the Iberia check-in at Barajas in Madrid. They sent me to BA check-in, where I waited 45 minutes to find out that I should be at Iberia check-in. Then, Iberia check-in had to send me to last minute clerk or I would have missed my flight. Last minute check-in ended up being the same place and same clerk I began with."
Cons: "A porter checked our bags at the gate without asking us whether we were traveling beyond London, so the bags were never transferred to the transatlantic flight nor did they arrive in SF. It wasn't necessary to check them because there was plenty of room in the overhead bins when we got on the flight. We immediately asked a flight attendant to help when I realized they might not go through and he said he spoke to someone who caught and tagged the bags to go through, but it still didn't happen. It would have been easier if he had just brought them to us on the plane. Another women's bag was taken with all her baby supplies and bottles in it for a 16-hour travel day. Very frustrating for all of us."
Cons: "Mistake Kayak or its subcontractor made in listing the name of my wife incorrectly. This created a real hassle in getting a boarding pass in her name"
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "The seat pitch was so small my knees were hard against the seat in front of me for 1.5 hours and I was miserable the whole time. To put this in perspective this was the most uncomfortable I have ever been on an airplane. My legs hurt the whole flight. This was the first leg of an expensive international flight and given the price of the 2 legs I should have been upgraded to a more comfortable seat. My flight to Europe on Iberia was excellent. However based on this bad experience I plan to avoid Iberia in the future because they treat their high price paying customers poorly. Peter Valorz Valorzp@yahoo.com."
Pros: "short flight, on time"
Cons: "indifferent crew"
Cons: "Very pleased with overall service and hospitality"
Pros: "Nothing stood out."
Cons: "Late. Ineffective boarding - announcement said we would board by row, but actual boarding was by mass crowding, with no attempt by crew to improve matters. No recognition of dwindling baggage storage space meant that I had to cram my suitcase under the seat, and spend the 2.5 hour flight with my legs jammed against it."
Cons: "Upon boarding the aircraft was really hot, I was sweating in my seat... I did not receive any complementary drinks or snacks."
Pros: "Comfortable flights & on time"
Cons: "Service, flight crew seemed to busy chatting instead of serving."
Cons: "They forced us to check our bags at the gate even though we had an international connection to make in London--to continue flying to Chicago. As a result, we had to go through customs and security in London, and would have most definitely missed our connecting flight back home to the States if not for a woman in customs at Heathrow who let us cut to the front of the line. I will never fly Iberia again and will be lodging a formal complaint."
Pros: "Flight attendant didnt help to pup up my luggage; even water was not free"
Pros: "The flight delayed for 2hours. I required the blanket but it was used with lots of hairs not really hygienic. The crew was not friendly and kind of rude."
Cons: "Seats are tiny. No legroom."
Cons: "Too little time to connect with another flight at Heathrow. Missed my connecting flight. Why is there an additional security checkpoint at Heathrow when you've already been thru security at another airport? Poor design for international arrivals."
Pros: "The ease at putting my luggage in.."
Cons: "The prices of the food and drinks!! Ripped off!!"
Pros: "Short 2 hour hop to Heathrow, adequate seating, nothing challenging about this flight. Barcelona airport is very user friendly, open and expansive. Service was good on the flight."
Cons: "Landed at heathrow, which is a sprawling airport and plenty of time required for the endless walking, bussing, and subway connections between terminals and gates. But efficient."
Pros: "We were overall very pleased with everything about, thank you!"
Pros: "Space, meals, movie selection"
Pros: "The crew was fabulous! And the ride was on time and had plenty of entertainment."
Cons: "My only complaint is that the seats were very tight in the economy class. We were packed like cattle. I know these were the "cheap" seats but for almost $1500 I would hope for a bit more comfort."
Cons: "Kept us waiting for five hours"
Cons: "There was bad weather which understandably caused delays, however the communication during this eventual 16 hour delay was horrendous. We were told for the first two hours that we would be delayed each hour and then they would make a decision to delay another hour. This went on for 4 hours (the last two hours of which we did not receive any updates). The flight was originally scheduled to leave at 8:10. At 12:30am we were told our plane was at the gate and being prepared for us to board and the agent giving announcements said we were "guaranteed to leave TONIGHT". At 1am we were told that unfortunately the plane got to the gate just a bit too late and not the crew are not legally allowed to fly and the flight would be pushed back until 8am. At the time, I thought 7 hours was strange and I'd assume the crew would need more like 8-10 hours to rest. Unfortunately because we were told so late, all hotels were booked up. I live in NYC and would've gone home for the night however because we needed to be back by 6am (what the agent suggested), there seemed no point in leaving. We were not provided with any pillows or blankets until 4 in the morning. At 6am the next morning, we were told the crew needed "more rest time" and that our new departure time would be 9:30. How is it that the crew now needs more time? Shouldn't that have been figured out at 1am? Before we board, one of the agents thinks they will "lighten the mood" with the following comment - "Who would've thought a little bad weather would've caused this?" Absolutely not a time for jokes and people were very angry. We finally board for what we think is finally a 9:30am take off. No - now two new issues - 1, the co pilot is late (LATE? how can you be late when a flight has been delayed 16 hours) and 2, they needed to remove package from the plane for people who were no longer taking this flight. In the end, we took off around 11:30am which messed up a lot of peoples connecting flights, pick ups at the airport, etc. I will never fly this airline again."
Pros: "Guests were boarded quickly. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Food was tasteless and bland. Crew was not very attentive."
Cons: "The seat did not recline, a bit ridiculous for a plane that size"
Pros: "Best transatlantic flight for a long time. More legroom quiet and delays were communicated well"
Cons: "Would have liked another couple rounds of water"
Cons: "You get on a flight and you can't even get water without paying for it. How cheap can you get. I got better service from Ryan Air."
