"Great"

"unfortunately we were unable to travel at this time due to the ongoing Covid situation in Sri Lanka. we hope to go instead in March 2022."

Cons: "None all good"

Pros: "We really enjoyed this airline!"

Pros: "Great entertainment choices. Staff friendly and attentive, particularly nice is that they feed children first, and offer small entertainment gifts to them."

Pros: "Food choice was good & amazing crew ."
Cons: "Plug for charging phone was not there that cause problem for me as my battery of phone was dead. Shocked to know that."

Cons: "Boarding by bus at Doha is lengthy and not very comfortable."

Cons: "Quatar is the best"

Cons: "Cancellation of the flight could have done before boarding."

Pros: "Seat was comfortable and leg room was pretty decent in economy class when compared to other airlines"
Cons: "Extra leg room, little bigger seats"

Cons: "It was delayed 3hrs but no regret from staff. Doha to staff very bad and arrogant"

Pros: "Flight not full, so space to move. Great service"

Pros: "seat space with leg room."

Pros: "Great service from all staff ,"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Fabulous service from start to finish Excellent cabin, spacious & impeccably clean Super choice of food and drinks We travelled in the business cabin which I have to say, rivals many so-called 'First Class' products. The crew were courteous, addressing us by name and nothing was too much trouble."

Pros: "empty seat next to me!"
Cons: "more cramped than akld to doha"

Pros: "The service on our flights was wonderful! Qatar is the best airline that I’ve ever flown on."

Pros: "Crew was excellent. Very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Food was terrible. Need a variety. Curry is not for everyone."

Pros: "decent leg room. the staff was accommodating"
Cons: "the brea was har. some of the food was overheated thus making it hard to eat"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. And the food choices were good."

Pros: "Food was very good and plentiful"

Pros: "Flight crew was quick to provide food and drinks but quality of the food was not as good as Emirates."
Cons: "-carry-on did not fit on center overhead compartment unless I put it side ways, which then takes up space for other passengers. Same carry-on suitcase fit nicely on Emirates airplanes. Basically, carry-on overhead compartments have been made smaller on purpose or by engineering error, and this makes me not want to fly Qatar airlines again. Less food options. I went to the Gally and they only had kitkat bars for food. Emirates offer fruit, sandwiches, and many choices at ALL TIMES of the flight for economy class."

Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "I was not given any option regarding the change of my departure flight from Colombo. Originally it was scheduled for 13th 3.25AM and it was brought forward to 12th night 20.20. This caused inconvenience to me and my family to wait 7 hours for the connecting flight to Johannesburg from Doha. When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."

Pros: "Fast"
Cons: "There were no food choice when the cabin crew reach my seat all run out"

Pros: "Thank you to wonderful hard working Crew."
Cons: "I am a lacto ovo vegitarian. The meal was just vegitarian. I would have like to have an ice cream or a piece of cake."

Pros: "The movie selection was good."
Cons: "-my seat did not recline, which I understand that I was close to the emergency exit but the person in front of me could still put their seat back way farther than they should be able to and I was unable to do simple things like put my glass of water on my tray -I had a vegetarian meal which was literally just rice and ground up brown mush-I have no idea what that much was -I asked twice for new headphones because my was broken but they forgot -When the flight attendant was coming around with water and she looked me to see if I wanted any and I said yes, she just skipped over me. I didn't pay a few hundred dollars extra for this."

Cons: "I will never ever fly Qatar airlines again. The boarding for this flight in Doha was horrendous. I and a random group of passengers were made to wait with no explanation AFTER our electronics were already cleared to go through yet another security check. They said we were selected for screening but all the other people they took before us were screened the exact same way. It was stressful and traumatizing to stand for 45 minutes with no clear explanation. The crew were clearly new at their job or ill trained. On top of that they consistently ran out of food they were serving and was forced to take the vegetarian option when it's not what I wanted. I could not wait to leave Doha and exit Qatar airways. I hated my experience traveling with Qatar. It was stressful and traumatic. I want a full refund. I will also be advising all my friends to never fly Qatar. It was the WORST!"

Cons: "Missed it because my flight from Colombo was delayed by 6 hrs."

Pros: "Overall ok. Wheel chair was.not available In Karachi and in Houston"
Cons: "Attention to special needs"

Pros: "Stewardess (Thai origin) - can't recall her name... Simi something or another... was very helpful... great experience!"

Pros: "Left and arrived on time, meals were above expectations."
Cons: "Difficult boarding procedure."

Pros: "Like the friendly Crew ..."
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Entertainment system did not work Boarding at Colombo air port is absolutely the worst We have seen. I have traveled a lot. Took 1 hr 30 mins to check in 40 people."

Pros: "Very comfortable seats with lots of space and pillows blankets and other ammenities. It was a 13 hour flight and the staff came by many timea with drinks and snacks"

Pros: "The inflight entertainment didnt work at all. Food choice was pathetic."
Cons: "Food and inflight entertainment"

Pros: "Best airline in the sky"

Cons: "Headrests on quatar airways are uncomfortable , especially for someone who is short and neck gets very stiff"

Pros: "Rhank you dear Qatar for excellent customer service"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "all things"
Cons: "don't know"

Pros: "Lots of leg space, good seats."
Cons: "Food could be better, much better."

Pros: "Good boarding. Nice flight attendants."
Cons: "Economy seats were too close to others. Entertainment displays on 777 planes didn't react well to touch. Too many large roller bags allowed on plane. Arm rests on A330 and 777 wouldn't go all the way up."

Cons: "I had to have the same food in both flights"

Pros: "I usually don't need a lot in the flight, just to kill some time. With Qatar, it was easy, your own entertainment screen with a huge selection of content. Plus the seat was very comfortable and wide, a lot of leg space. New aircraft. what more can you ask?"

Pros: "I think in plain should serve international food not only Indian spicy one. may some do not like spicy"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Not sufficient food, less quantity or quality of food, cramped seat, there was a big guy sitting next to me, unable to even rest my hand"

Pros: "The food was fabulous and plentiful. We also took advantage of the free tour of Doha--a very pleasant way to spend a six-hour layover. Flight attendants were all very attentive and helpful."

Cons: "There was no boarding system, everyone just crowded the gate. Food was unappetizing at best. Colombo Qatar Airways staff at Colombo airport were not very helpful when trying to change details of my booking."

Pros: "Great food, comfortable new plans, great food, great crew"
Cons: "Boarding in Colombo was dire - they boarded the plane from the back, leaving Business Class passengers waiting in the hot, uncomfortable gate area until last"

Pros: "I think that the food can improve and it felt like the flight was short staffed."

Cons: "Food was not enough and it was served after very long hours."

Cons: "Thanks"

Pros: "Amazing crew!"
Cons: "The seats were not the best and it would have been nice to have a meal other than just a small breakfast."

Pros: "The crew were awesome"
Cons: "The film choice was poor"

Pros: "Same again. A good flight and well fed."

Pros: "Crew was amazing"

Pros: "Because i changed to business class, it was a different experience. Comfort, convenience, good service."
Cons: "All went well."

Pros: "Great value"

Cons: "Old plane - ACE - very basic movie selection."

Pros: "The crew were very hard working and did a great job."

Pros: "Crew was amazing really .. best crew you may have... sear very comfort, the ICE is very amusing"

Pros: "Service & caring were superb"
Cons: "The snack was served not good and eatable. Emirates like one of leading air lines could have been served a better food. If it is cost cutting effort to serve a very basic snack like this, customers will be finding other air lines in the future."

Pros: "The ecperience"
Cons: "Food was poor"

Cons: "Delays boarding meant we were almost 30 mins late arriving in Wellington. Cramped seats on Qantas 737 plane"

Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable"

Pros: "Xcellent"

Pros: "Modern spacious plane, on-board experience all fine. Flat beds in Bysiness are great."
Cons: "Boarding is shambolic - no signs, no announcements, first class passengers get herded into a large pen with the others , which leads to no reliable priority boarding. Flight was delayed 25 minutes (advised by kayak not Emirates); no acknowledgement of it - departure boards never reflected it, no announcement."

Pros: "Love the outfits the flight attendants wear Love the attention they give to all ...and basically everything else was above GOOD"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was a crabby lady sitting behind me on my way to Dubai the end of October who objected to me reclining my seat ..meanwhile, she had hers reclined! But I didn't consider it important enough to complain."

Pros: "Good leg-room."
Cons: "Crew do not seem to be attentive."

Pros: "The staff is always exceptional. Providing service for my every need."

Pros: "Wasn't full so there was space to street a bit. Stewardesses were polite and attentive - checking throughout whether drinks were required (on other flights they've disappeared between food services). Good selection of films."
Cons: "Although the good was actually alright in this flight, I don't like the fact that Emirates no longer do a vegetarian meal - I have to have a vegan meal instead, which often means things are just left off (not replaced) that I could actually eat, like cheese and biscuits, or a croissant."

Cons: "There was no option during check in to request meal options- ex vegetarian request."

Pros: "Facilities excellent. Staff not quite so attentive on this leg of the trip."
Cons: "Just left to it. Not much fuss made."

Pros: "Caring crew"

Pros: "Food, staff, seats, quality and feel of cabin"
Cons: "The cabin is heavily perfumed. I coughed most of the flight from the various scents. You could tone it down a bit."

Pros: "Not much. The crew were bright and breezy. Ish."
Cons: "Emirates has applied EasyJet seat ramming techniques to its A380 business Class product. As a result even the spacious upper deck of an A380 feels cramped. The seat width in business Class is the same as economy so lying on your side to sleep is an impossibility for all but the diminutive or children. It’s hard to justify 4-5 times the economy fare to sit in such cramped ‘pile em high, sell em cheap’ seats. Breakfast served just before landing at LGW was honestly the most revolting meal I’ve ever been served onboard an aircraft, and I’ve flown Monarch. Less scrambled egg than puréed egg slops with gristly undercooked chicken sausages. Ryanair would blush at serving up such lousy fare. Emirates are paring back the ‘overheads’ in business Class and its starting to show. Cheapening the product (in every sense) might work for some but if I’m going to stump up thousands I think I’ll choose an airline that treats me less like self loading cargo in future."

Pros: "Great legroom in Economy seats on A380 DXB-LGW Good inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Inflight service perfunctory Food of adequate standard Both used to be much better on Emirates"

Cons: "The A/C was on full blast. Before take off the flight attendant took away my pillow from my lap?? No blanke was provided upon asking and my pillow was noy returned either. Considering this flight took off from CMB at 3:00 AM, both items would have been a great help. I skipped my meal."

Pros: "Pretty mjuch ebverything except.."
Cons: "My boarding pass for second leg was not given in Colombo but in Dubai.. by then I didn't get an aisle seat."

Cons: "Not having an aisle seat made it very difficult for my handicapped husband to get in and out of his seat. We had to wait for our neighbors to step out of their seat and take advantage to do the same. Felt very claustrophobic. Service was not good, we rang the bell several times to get some help and no one came to our assistance and we gave up after that. The crew told us they had run out of some juices that we would have liked."

Pros: "the food was wonderful, the economy seats were comfy, and the service was superb. I really liked being able to watch movies and listen to music w/o a charge."

Cons: "Crew were rude, kept knocking customers. no vegan meal No drinks offered for majority of flight poor quality entertainment, screen didn't work properly."

Pros: "very comprehensive entertainment system"
Cons: "Food quality was a letdown. Crew was very rushed with meal service and did not return to offer drinks once meal service concluded. No ammenity pack for a business flight."

Pros: "When traveling overseas, I believe Emirates is by far one of the best airlines to travel with. From check-in to arrival the staff is extremely professional, polite and helpful. I will look to travel with Emirates every possibility I get."
Cons: "I think the meals can be simplified a little. Wasn't a big fan of the food, but I rarely eat on the plane so it didn't matter anyway."

Pros: "I was very comfortable."

Pros: "Entertainment & food options, onboard service, seat width & leg room (I'm just under 6 foot)"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Baggage collection slow still waiting"

Pros: "Attendants were attentive, effecient and very helpful. Made the long flight wonderful."

Pros: "Generally good standard, nothing to sit about but there was a selection of recent and older films and TV, OK food and fairly comfortable seats."
Cons: "While the food was ok, there were some odd omissions from the vegetarian meals that sometimes made them seem smaller or worse value compared to the non-veggie options. Still better than I've had on some other airlines though."

Pros: "crew"
Cons: "crappy entertainment screens food was a bit blah (stale bread products, slimy fruit)"

Pros: "Emirates are always very good in every department, unfortunately for the third trip in succession on the outward journey they ran out of the main dish on the dinner menu."

Pros: "Good connecting experience in Dubai."
Cons: "Comfort of seats could be better"

Pros: "Crew couldn't have been friendlier!!"

Pros: "I didnt mych like anything of this transit sector from colombo to maldives."
Cons: "First off, if im buying a ticket and traveling by myself and have an overnight 11hrs and 35min layover i expected some sort of accommodation given that the Maldivian airport is an outside one. Not only did they (Maldivian Emirates counter officer Ibrahim Shinad) refused to give me a lounge they said to get a room at a hotel was $400 US! Which is absurd. I had to sleep on metal chairs. They also closed most shops by 12am and by the time we landed and went through checkin it was 1130. Not a pleasant experience at all."

Pros: "I liked the boarding and most the crew was excellent"
Cons: "I specified ovo Lacto vegetarian because I eat cheese and diary. I got a stale and very small bread role with strawberry jam, wilted fruit and margarine for the breakfast meal. The non vegetarians got a full plate of croissant, cheese, fruit and jams. When I asked for butter I got no response. I asked three times before I could get some butter as I do not eat margarine. Lunch was wilted and slimy lettuce and tired fruit for dessert. The main meal itself was delicious but I was hungry the whole flight due to the small helping.. Another small but slightly fresher role and margarine again. Next to the non vegetarian meal there was less than half the food. It was very disappointing."

Pros: "Entertainment, lounge.."

Cons: "Checkin process takes long"

Pros: "on borad crew Food entertainment plane"
Cons: "wheel char request poorly managed in Dubai and Amman Seating area next to crying children for 5 hrs + is horrible"

Pros: "Food was good, crew was excellent"
Cons: "Entertaintment system hardly worked.Long response time, frequent freeze-up, touted live news but none available. Seats were hard, and very uncomfortable to sit or relax."

Pros: "It was an empty flight with much space to stretch my feet and sleep in comfort! service was great and landing was extremely good (didn't feel it at all)."

Pros: "I was not able to make the flight due to the coronavirus. The hospital I’m employed at banned outside travel. I tried contacting the airline and kayak to get a refund."
Cons: "I was not able to make the flight due to the coronavirus. The hospital I’m employed at banned outside travel. I tried contacting the airline and kayak to get a refund or a voucher"

Pros: "Love love love this airlines! I wish the US carriers were like this!"

Pros: "The staff member who checked me in was very friendly"
Cons: "the inflight staff needs to improve their behaviour in dealing with passengers. Some were quite rude. The aircraft seats were extremely cramped. The food selection was quite poor."

Pros: "Very good!!!"

Cons: "It was an excelent flight. The cabin crew was very nice and the servise was excellent. The food was very delicious and it was Turkish food. The flight wasn't boring and we even didn't notice how time passed and we landed in Istanbul. We didn't need to wait for our luggage. Thank you very much."

Cons: "The booking experience was exceptionally bad. Never again through you."

Cons: "being treated like a drug dealer at the boarding gate #312 and having passport / boarding pass checked several times"

Pros: "The food and quality of the flight was incredible."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic, partly due to the airport layout, however it would be great if they were able to sort a less chaotic way to transport business class passengers out to the jets in less cramped busses."

Cons: "The boarding was chaotic. The space used at the gate could not cater for the number of passengers and there was no way anyone with any priority boarding status could make it to the counter. This is not new and has been a recurring problem with this flight and turkish airline does not seem to care enough to handle."

Pros: "The services was excellent."
Cons: "Delay around three quarter an hour."

Pros: "Good connection from SFO to TLV. Good service good food"
Cons: "No problem"

Pros: "Again a good solid basic service with good food well prepared and agreeably served by a pleasant staff. Thank you"
Cons: "Planes are a little small for a fairly long haul business service. Nice but small - so basic amenities."

Pros: "Comfortable and uneventful flight - just the way it should be!"

Pros: "Confort"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "After your bags are delayed 3 days, it's hard to like anything about an airline."
Cons: "Tracking my luggage was a nightmare. No one had any idea where it was for 3 days. When my bag finally arrived, the exterior was severely damaged. Also, the fight crew is rude and unfriendly. If I can help it, I will never fly Turkish Airlines again."

Pros: "Great food!"
Cons: "The aircraft looks a little old."

Pros: "You guys are blessed and best of all of time"
Cons: "I didn't hate nothing it was the best"

Pros: "Busy flight with many kids and the entire crew was friendly and professional with service."

Pros: "Very friendly and willing crew."
Cons: "Sound through headphones could be better. Hope to have free onboard internet one day!!"

Pros: "not much"
Cons: "hostesses not so courteous"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly. Great entertainment options. The seats were comfortable and fairly spacious. The food was also amazing!"
Cons: "My luggage was ruined due to poor handling."

Cons: "Boarding was chaos. Cramped seating"

Pros: "I definitely recommend Turkish Airlines because of the services offered and customer service."

Pros: "I thought the flight attendants were excellent!! They were the best crews since the beginning of our journey. I wish I had their names. They were one young lady and a tall man. Thank you very very much!!"
Cons: "I feel the seats are too narrow and space too tight. Other than that, all good!"

Cons: "Noticed that you made NO announcement that you were boarding the plane whatsoever both to London and on return. NONE"

Cons: "On of stewardess was very rude ."

Pros: "The movies."
Cons: "Not being made aware that for an international flight I would be only alloted one checked bag, I Brought both of my bags as I always do when I travel. I was aware I would incur a charge, but was surprised that not only would I be redirected from the long bag drop line back to ticket sales, but that they would charge me 10 € per kilo! So my bag ended up costing me double what my ticket cost me for a 4 hour flight. Never again."

Pros: "The crew bumber was short fot the full flight. The food used to be better in THY."

Pros: "Staff was good"
Cons: "Delayed baggage on first flight for 1 day Delay in next flight and missed the connection"

Pros: "Everything, fast boarding, good experience overall, turkish airline provides good services for very affordable price, i am pleased"
Cons: "Airport is huge, the walk to gate 701 was long, i thought i would never get there...i think they should arrange some kind of transportation to gates like 701"

Pros: "Crew were lovely. I did request a window seat at check in and the clerk said she had done it, however I was stuck in the middle of two people 16J so it was a very uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "Two babies screened the whole way to Los Angeles I was ready to kill them. Babies on long haul flights should be strapped to the wings. it was ridiculous/annoying. No vegetarian option on the flight to LA which would have been nice. However the food is really good and I loved the eggs for breakfast."

Cons: "They just fly without waiting us We arrived hour and half before the flight, and they diecied to close the check in, Choce any other flying compeny but them!!!"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Boarding and airplane age."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "entertainment was excellent the crew was nice"
Cons: "teh landing was tough the boarding was late"

Cons: "Because of the coup in Turkey, I had to cancel my flight. I'm still trying to get my partial reimbursement. It been two weeks!"

Pros: "Crew is very friendly. The plan is very clean and designed well and fashioned. The entertainer movie is good but the not all the shows."
Cons: "The air condition of the two planes I used was very bad. There is only one type of food for breakfast. There is no much more to watch besides movies; no sitcoms or decomntries found"

Pros: "It is very bad all flights been cancelled!"
Cons: "Didn't like any thing zero bad I wanna come back to the state! I'm was born in 1946 I couldn't stand on my feet any more!"

Pros: "Very accommodating staff, food and drink provided. First time traveling on Turkish airlines but would definitely do again."
Cons: "New boarding area in Istanbul, very stuffy and hot. Did not bother to use board groups so everyone is standing around trying to get on plane. Luggage retrieval in ATL too excessive time."

Cons: "I can't find my baggage.."

Pros: "Everything was excellent"

Pros: "Food was good. Staff very friendly."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Modern 777 with seatback entertainment system and usb charging ports. Massive selection of entertainment. In-flight meals were excellent, U.S. airlines should emulate."
Cons: "Cabin temp was a bit high, my only complaint."

Pros: "Departure and arrival were on time. Fairly smooth flight"
Cons: "Boarding process was quite strange. Hand checked some travelers but not all with no explanation. Breakfast was a bit "off""

Cons: "The lack of leg room in the huge plane"

Pros: "Turkish Airlines is the best. Great food. An entertainment system that is really in a class of its own, especially on this flight -- large, crisp screens with lots to watch. Wonderful service. Great prices. I'll be back!"

Pros: "The overall service is excellent. Their culinary selection is superb with their only rival, in my opinion, coming from Kenya Airways."

Cons: "In addition to long delay before the aircraft was finally parked on the tarmac, passengers had to wait for more than 40 minutes before the checked bags were delivered. There was nobody from the ground crew to tell us the reason for the delay as passengers were just wondering about waiting for their luggage. This airline needs to know how to treat their passengers well."

Pros: "Food was great! Drinks was varied The crew was very nice and thoughtful"
Cons: "There was no entertainment since the system didn't work all the flight. All the boarding things was very poor both sides of flight. Big delay!!"

Cons: "We had long line in boarding"

Pros: "The seat was comfortable when it came leg room"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Good service, boarded quick and landed early"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The plane got from a to b safely"
Cons: "The food was dreadful. Both the gluten free and regular meals. Tasteless and unimaginative. Very dodgy landing. The time of arrival given by the airline prior to flying did not take into account the fact that the clocks went back. So our pickup was delayed. Not good at 4 am"

Pros: "easy"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Long delays, little communication, stuffed into a hot bus before the plane was cleaned - not allowed off the bus, no air conditioning and kids crying whilst we were trapped for a while in the bus."

Pros: "Captain kept passengers informed on everything, great flight, helpful crew, fantastic entertainment system."
Cons: "Leg room isn’t great for such can’t a long flight and the food was not the greatest."

Pros: "Arrived ahead of the schedule"
Cons: "Not even a free bottle od water included in price of the flight anymore."

Pros: "most pleasant flight i have had. Crew were perfect"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Was delayed by 45 mins but managed to turn plans round quickly and get back faster than planned"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Despite all the “delays” it actually arrived on time."
Cons: "First it was on time (this morning t-12 hrs) Then it was delayed (delayed incoming flight) Then the plane changed and was on time Then something weird happend, departure was on time, arrival was delayed by 2 hours. Of course, officially there was no delay as departure was still on schedule - but “departure” just means everyone is boarded and plane door is shut, you could still be sitting on an empty stand on the tarmac for two+ hours. Complaints ensued. Captain rerouted plane. Back on time. Arriving at LGW is ridiculous - only 3!!!! THREE! Border nazis manning passport desk for entire south terminal, there must have been at least 700 people queueing. So that delay of 1 hour plus still occurred just within the airport. #ThisIsBrexitBritain #BrokenBritain #PeopleJustDoNothing #NothingWorks #AlexCruzIsACunt"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The complete lack of help from BA staff after I missed my flight. No helpful suggestions at all when I asked for guidance. Just 'the flight is closed and there are no more seats left today'."

Cons: "They kicked me off the flight and I missed my husbands performance"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "I understand the flight was delayed because of the thunderstorm, but even then, the boarding process was horrible, at the airport they didn't know what was going on and people could board with no logic. It's also unbelievable that with a flight with such a delay, where we were told that at the gate that there was a limited amount of food on board, whatever was available (even water) was not kindly offered, but was on sale only."

Pros: "Nothing. Delayed. Waiting around a lot. No satisfactory explanation."
Cons: "Delays. Poor communication. Disappointment that you can now count on BA to be worse than just about all other airlines."

Pros: "My first domestic flight with BA for years yet the service imo has got even slicker and better. From check-in to boarding to disembarking and all ahead of schedule, I doubt if I would fly domestically with anyone else."

Pros: "Disembarking"
Cons: "Late"

Pros: "I recently had a difficult time returning to Italy and the part of the journey handled by BA was excellent. They were kind and helpful."

Pros: "Last minute flight (booked 4 hours before departure), one way, economy, for €99 from Amsterdam to Edinburgh via Gatwick. Long layover at Gatwick (around 3 hours), but I had much work to do anyway, so time went faster than I realised. Not sure if this was the case at Schiphol, but at Gatwick had priority security queue as a BA customer."

Pros: "It got me to where needed to get to. First flight in 12 months that wasn’t delayed."
Cons: "Poor value for money. The food & drink selection (that you have to pay for) is abysmal. UK Border is a joke, 20+ passport desks but only 2 are ever occupied, ePassport gate DOESNT work (won’t eork if you have kids). Zero f**ks given. #BrexitBritain #BrokenBritain"

Pros: "Crew and drink selection"
Cons: "3/4 of a sandwich for afternoon tea beyond a joke Barcelona lounge not great"

Cons: "Luggage did not follow me. Still without."

Pros: "Mostly the crew made me feel welcomed. They were polite and courteous, when I ordered hot food, they advised there would be a delay, but promptly delivered it after. When they forgot my drink, they did not seem put out to get it for me."
Cons: "When I boarded, I was asked by a lady at the gate how many months I was pregnant, I felt her manner could have been more polite, and that, since she had noticed I was pregnant and I was quite tired, I might have been given a bit of priority to get to my seat, but I was stood in the queue and had quite a wait."

Pros: "The crew were very friendly, and the flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "Boarding was a nightmare. There was not enough room for people to wait, no queuing in place nor priority boarding. We were in row 19 (so mid way through the plane) and by the time the refreshment trolley got to us a large majority of the food AND drink was sold out - seemed very strange!"

Pros: "Polite crew, flight was on time landing - even early. Seats were comfortable."

Cons: "According yo the kayak app on the moment of booking the flight was going to Heathrow, but it went to Gatwick. In addition, the tariff did not include one checked luggage as shown on the app as well. Really disappointed with my first use of kayak."

Pros: "Very helpful crew, smooth flight, choice of small meal - great"
Cons: "No entertainment but it is a short flight"

Pros: "The staff where very good, was comfy for short trip"
Cons: "2hr 40min delay, and a very hectic and long boarding process"

Pros: "Nothing. Not one redeeming thing to say. What a shame."
Cons: "Everything. Massive delay, but not that much as it was JUST before the threshold (by 5 minutes), cheats. Radio failure was the excuse, followed by crew change - yeah, right, not buying that one - more like radio was fine, but crew wanted to chip off work early and avoid last flight (common tactic for a demoralised/unionised workforce). Border is still broken at LGW. THIS is Broken Brexit Britain."

Pros: "Flight was punctual, left on time and arrived in Gatwick early."
Cons: "Took 2 hours 20 mins to be offered in flight catering on a 2 hour 30 min flight. Next time will be bringing my own food and drink."

Cons: "Flight full takes longer time for boarding . But staff was nice and efficient . Lots of leg room comfortable chairs."

Pros: "The team on board is always trying their best and work hard to make it comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost an hour after boarding which isn't the end of the world but to sit on the plane is worst than waiting for it. They had one disabled customer who screamed all night and to be honest, again, not much you can do about it but it kept everyone awake on an overnight flight. Would've been nice if they had handled the customer."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Terrible catering Seat comfort horrible worse than low cost Lounge overcrowded with no seat and no food left"

Pros: "Dealt nicely"
Cons: "Not much different that cheap airlines"

Pros: "Great service & crew. Food good for aircraft food"
Cons: "Half hour delay but no big deal actually. Could have done with more leg room, but again flight was e cellent price"

Pros: "The flight was one hour delayed however the captain was extremely good in 1)explaining in details the reason for the delay (air traffic control and parking slot issues) 2) allowing us to take pics in the cockpit! It turned out to be a memorable experience! In terms of customer care, it doesn't get any better, thanks captain!"
Cons: "Delays are never good...."

Cons: "Price"

Pros: "Nothing - I arrived eventually."
Cons: "Undue stress, over booked flight, lost luggage. Zero customer service. Will never fly BA again."

Pros: "We landed and I could get off the aircraft. The flight was early - although it meant my transport was late."
Cons: "Check in process chaotic and little information. Why does he in flight menu not have any gluten free options other than crisps or cake or fruit? Would you be happy with this on a 3 hr flight?"

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

Pros: "The crew were pleasant and polite. Energetic, good ambassadors for BA."
Cons: "The plane was dirty. My tray table hadn't been wiped down in a long time, and the prior passenger's used flight socks had not been removed from the drawer. The pillow was laughable - - flat as a pancake. . One of the business class lavs was out of service. . This was an overused 777 desperately in need of a refurbishment. And don't get me started on the ridiculous 2-4-2 seating in business class. How does BA think it can get away with it, when competitors offer 1-2-1?"

Cons: "Very bed I will never use this service iny more"

Pros: "Clean plane, efficient cabin crew, very slick boarding."
Cons: "Nothing to make it stand out from the other providers(Flybe, Ryanair, easyJet) as all complimentary offerings have disappeared."

Pros: "Punctual"
Cons: "Seats broken..no free deink"

Cons: "We were asked to check in our luggage as there was not sufficient space in the cabin which obviously delayed our plans of getting a train to other location from the airport after lading as we had to collect the bags etc"

Pros: "Plane left on time and arrived on time. Went up and came down again without any fuss. Cabin crew were efficient."
Cons: "Boarding took too long. Whilst I was travelling posh at the front of the aeroplane, why not fill it up from the back? I would be quite happy to be the last one on board."

Pros: "Polite considerate staff and more comfortable aircraft."
Cons: "Shame there are no free snacks or drinks on board anymore."

Pros: "Checked in online and very quick bag drop at MCO."
Cons: "Awful food both for dinner and breakfast. Choice of chicken curry or cheese and tomato pasta but had already run out of chicken by the time we were served. Menu doesn't seem to change from one year to the next.Bread bun like a rock, salad uninspiring. Breakfast equally disappointing with a dry bagel and a couple of breakfast bars."

Pros: "Considering all the delays and cancelled flights (due to fog and all London airports closing) this flight was good."

Pros: "Excellent staff"
Cons: "There is nothing to dislike about BA"
