Cons: "Considering that we’re in the middle of a pandemic no LH ground staff at Heathrow Airport was leading by example wearing protective equipment such as mask or gloves. Further, I found it inexplicably that almost every seat was taken on this flight. If LH knows that the flight is booked close to capacity I would have expected they do their part and due diligence by swapping to a bigger aircraft to help protect people and their customers, it’s not that they wouldn’t have other aircrafts grounded and ready to go... A reduced beverage service is all you can do, really? LH - very disappointing once again"

Cons: "Flight from Heathrow to Frankfurt delayed, when we arrived we had no chance of making our connecting flight to Split yet no one told us. No one at the gate which didn’t say final call (or on any of the boards) or anyone calling us over the tannoy at any point. Super rude “flight manager” A. Turini burst out laughing when we told him our situation and when I asked why he said “Well would it make you happier if I cry instead?” So unprofessional."
Pros: "The ground staff in Heathrow was helpful. They happily swapped me onto an earlier flight to Munich after I spotted delays out of Munich, allowing me ample time to connect in Munich airport"

Cons: "The whole experience"
Pros: "Crew and service was amazing"
Cons: "No entertainment food Horrible"

Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable but outside that not much I can fault the airline for."
Cons: "I didn’t like it because when I asked for a big water bottle, they refused to gove it to me while I am sick and suffer dry throat. The space is rather small. If you are 5ft 5 and above person, I honestly would suggest you buy extra legroom for comfortable purposes. Also, there is like 1 restroom on the whole plane and if you sot at the end, you are screw. Lets not forget that they delayed our flights like 4 hours and only gave us 1 voucher for snack. I don’t expect the experience will be fancy but this is a total disappointment!"

Cons: "Staff didn't ask a lady next to me to sit properly whilst she was almost laying with her shoes very near to my seat. I had to be careful not to clean her shoe soles with my clothes. Also, after arrival to Birmingham there was an unnecessary crowd created by releasing people from busses from 2 different flights simultanously."
Pros: "The crew were very helpful and friendly"
Cons: "The flight was delayed"
Cons: "Rubbish boarding staff"
Cons: "Very very long walk plus train to baggage reclaim at Munich"
Cons: "Poor food on first leg. Sat by a man who was allowed to have 7 cans of beer. On second leg of journey I was willing to pay for food. The best choice for anyone trying to eat a healthy diet was pot noodles. Air Canada get 2 stars. Return journey on United gets 4stars."
Pros: "It’s nice that Lufthansa still gives food onboard"
Cons: "My Lufthansa flight left with 1hour delay"
Pros: "Smooth process. Regular updates."
Cons: "Late departure."
Pros: "Good attitude"
Cons: "The flight took off 2 hours late they must have known it was going to be that late, yet they lied saying that it was on time, forcing you to come to the airport early, then when you get to the airport they did the - oh its going to be 20 minutes late, no 40, no 1.5 hours late, heck it will be 2 hours late etc. Micro-tight seat pitch - I could barely sit in the seats."

Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and could not recline seats"
Pros: "Everything went according as planned. No problem at all."
Cons: "There is nothing I didn’t like."
Pros: "The crew were excellent and plane was comfortable"
Cons: "The plane was way out of the terminal and I had asked for assistance which I had going and most of coming back until the last part getting on to the plane at Lufthansa no-one came at Birmingham either. I struggled to collect my case and walk through to the exit."
Pros: "Fast-track security, Lufthansa lounge in Heathrow T2 was fabulous, with incredibly attentive staff, flight stewards were extremely polite and also attentive. Great in flight snack and drinks. A real pleasure."

Pros: "The food and drinks was very good."
Cons: "The flight was late."
Pros: "Easy check-in and helpful staff. I would absolutely fly with Lufthansa again"

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

Pros: "The crew and in flight experience were excellent."
Cons: "Terminal procedures, particularly a tarmac delay and understaffed customs and security personnel, jeopardized my London Heathrow connection in spite of the 80 minute layover. Itineraries with less than a two-hour connection should be discontinued as a fraudulent misrepresentation of the passenger's likely success. I will never fly through Heathrow again."
Cons: "Lufthansa airline has no intention to help their passengers and happily see their passengers suffer from the airline's mistakes"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "In seat entertainment, better food."
Pros: "Staff was friendly. They fixed my flight from Frankfurt to Denver and got me an aisle seat."
Cons: "Leaving late from BOTH legs on the way to England. :-( Being told in email that I was going to have an aisle seat on the flight from Frankfurt to Denver, but then on the day I was told I wouldn't."
Pros: "Heathrow had a lot to offer between flights. Our gate was in the middle of everything."
Cons: "We were late boarding, which left very little time to connect with my next flight in Frankfurt."
Cons: "I did the email check in. When I arrive at the airport, I asked for customer service to print the boarding passes. They changed my seat assignment which not asked. This caused some confusion when we boarded."

Cons: "Not getting bumped from a flight set up 2 months ago"
Cons: "They lost all my luggage"
Cons: "The plane is very old and dirty. They need to overhaul their planes to make them worth flying. Some seats recline way to far, some don’t recline at all, entire plane smells like stale cigarettes."
Pros: "Don’t know how to just give a “n/a” response for food and entertainment. It wasn’t applicable because of such a short flight."
Cons: "The gal who checked me in for my flight didn’t check my baggage all the way through even though I have a connecting flight with Aer Lingus to LA. However, fortunately, the baggage team caught the error and retagged my luggage properly. By the time I realized her error, they had already emailed me with the solution! Yay baggage team!! Thank you!"

Pros: "Everyone at Aer Lingus from the people at the gate to the flight crew were very courteous to my mother who had to use a wheelchair."

Pros: "The first plane left without us, so I didnt like anything about it"
Cons: "We arrived at the airport late because our first plane arrived at the airport late, then we were held up because of poor weather. When we arrived at the Dublin airport, we had to run the gauntlet, only to be told our plane had already left- a few minutes early - thanks a lot. I wanted a drink on the plane and had to pay for it- I’ve always had free drinks before."
Cons: "Haven’t flown it yet"
Pros: "Good service, attentive, courteous and friendly cabin crew. The ease of getting immigration completed at Dublin rather than having to wait in line for over an hour at London. Wheelchair assistance available right at the exit from aircraft for each flight."
Pros: "Basic flight to Dublin"
Cons: "Not enough water"

Pros: "Flight was good, food excellent and great service"

Cons: "Trains were not running Directions to connecting flight gate were poorly labeled and confusing, no signage to catch buses to International terminal - no signage to say trains were down Had to recheck at international gate and the process was SLOW took 1:20 minutes to get from landing gate to connecting gate including having to go through security again probably won't fly Air Lingus or United again due to having to deal with O'Hare"
Pros: "everything was fine"

Pros: "Flight was on time."

Pros: "Flight delayed 2 hrs - missed connection, small seats/aisles."
Cons: "Crew was nice."
Pros: "Food aervice"

Pros: "Friendly staff with excellent humour, and an efficiently short flight time."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The food was really bad, The breakfast sandwich they handed out would not have been fit for animals. Horrible!!!! The entertainment equipment on the aircraft was not working and my wife and I were not able to see a movie or anything. Not a good way to take a long flight. My seat was not working properly and was either all the way back or all the way up."
Pros: "Luggage was couriered and arrived 9 hours later."
Cons: "That our luggage wasn't on the flight and we only realised after waiting/looking for over half an hour. Then had to do the missing report, all after a long flight. Couldn't someone in Dublin have rung and warned us?"
Pros: "The crew was really nice"
Cons: "I was put on probably the oldest plane they have. No outlets to charge phones, none of the headrest TVs worked, apparently you have to request vegetarian meal options in advance (news to me, these are standard on most other airlines). Would not fly again."

Pros: "Seats on flights between London and Dublin."

Cons: "We froze the entire trip each way as we had the exit seats"

Pleasant fast flight.

Pros: "Fast and good service"

A short flight from City Airport. The whole experience was faultless. Every flight should be like this.

Flight delayed. Ordered special meal wasn't provided...

Pros: "good noise cancellation"
Pros: "The entertainkeb5 was"
Cons: "As someone who is 6 feet tall, I was ridiculously uncomfortable the entire flight. My knees were pressed against the seat in front of me, and when the woman in front of me reclined, I couldn't even unfold the tray due to a lack of space. I was very unhappy,"
Pros: "We took the offer of putting cabin baggage in hold. Some of those that retained theirs had "oversized" bags that should have been taken from them at the steps of the plane. As this did not happen there were a lot of problems including the problem of opening the lockers"
Cons: "Stricter control on cabin bags. The result was that our bags were already on the belt when we got to customs area"
Cons: "Rude staff"
Cons: "With 2h30 hours delayed flight I missed my train and had to have a hotel Arcturus airport in Amsterdam and continue my journey only the day after."
Cons: "Distance between seats on the low side i.e. not much leg room. TV screen again on the small size in comparison with other airlines. Ear phones poor build quality and sound. Plastic cutlery. Small meal trays. No hand wipes with meals. In comparison with other airlines BA is only an average carrier."
Cons: "A plane made any year after 1990... Last minute flight switch caused great discomfort and VERY narrow seats"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by three hours; not sure how to fix that but it was annoying. For some reason the arm rests in the middle of the seats would not go fully back and I felt like the flight attendants were talking down to me. They also could have been having a bad day too with the flight. :/"
Pros: "LCY very efficient baggage drop, flight arrived ahead of schedule"
Pros: "Perfect flight"
Cons: "Been perfect"
Pros: "Good entertainment options"
Cons: "The armrests did not fully extend, making the seat incredibly uncomfortable for my husband...the flight crew did not seem to care..."
Cons: "Incoming flight delayed so late departure"
Pros: "The flight crew"
Cons: "Never board check in luggage at lcy, they don't know what to do with it"
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly. Getting to leave the plane."
Cons: "Seats were the smallest since I tried Ryan Air. Boarding is ridiculous process of elevators, buses, and salmon stand-offs as people board from the front & rear with no guidance. Arrival was also waiting on buses before a 15 minute ride to the far side of the airport. No food or beverage is offered free. Not a pleasant experience in any way."
Pros: "Short flight, uncrowded Embraer plane, easy check in at City airport and easy arrival at Prague."
Cons: "Late departure due to “late arrival of inbound aircraft” - which seems to be the norm."
Pros: "City airport is very convenient from East London. Flight is only 40 minutes"

Cons: "Old aircraft, which wasn’t clean"
Pros: "Enough said"
Pros: "Good for leg room and nice and the seats are comfy and wide too. Still get a free drink and snack on this flight and the service was friendly and efficient throughout. We were very quick to board and flight landed early, so very happy."
Cons: "I'm guessing this plane was stopping in EDI for the night, so it parked way, way away from the terminal, so we had an extra 15 minutes none of us had been expecting to wait for the bus and transfer."
Cons: "No food available on flight in business class. Kitchen breakdown"
Pros: "Service kind and efficient"
Cons: "Late"
Pros: "We slept the entire flight since this was the second leg of our journey."
Cons: "Plane departed 40 minutes late even though we were on board in time. Congestion at Heathrow was the problem, but this was not a problem for us since we got an extra 40 minutes of sleep."
Pros: "Clean efficient on time Nice staff"
Pros: "Crew was superb, very friendly and helpful as the handle of my bag broke. They did all they could to assist."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Very irresponsible staff and customer service. The flight got delayed due to technical reasons and the havoc after that is beyond explanation. Wish there was zero stars to rate"
Pros: "A380 is a great plane"
Cons: "entertainment system stopped working and would not reset correctly"
Pros: "Fast Boarding. Easy Airport"

Cons: "Basic snacks"
Pros: "Always a good flight out of LCY"
Cons: "Took hand luggage at gate and waited an hour to get it at baggage claim"
Pros: "Good flight, bit bumpy due to weather."
Cons: "4-hour delay for a 40minute flight"
Cons: "Announcing gate information only 45 minutes before departure and having only 25 minutes to get there before gate closing is very inconvenient and nerve wracking."
Cons: "My flight to NYC was delayed 2 hours because of weather and I got a notification that this flight was delayed as well. Got to the counter at 10:50 (flight was delayed to 11:48) and they would not let check in. Ended up missing all my connecting flights and had to pay an additional $1600 as a result."
Cons: "Your airways lost my bag on the both flights from MIA-LHR-VIE and on the way back VIE-LHR-MIA My entertainment system was broken. I paid for the seat at the end of the day I didn't get. The moat horrible flight I ever had. I will never again fly with British Airways"
Pros: "Short flight but thought there would be beverage service????"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "No preferred boarding for business class. Business class seat was exactly same as economy Food option was not good"
Pros: "Like the direct flight."
Cons: "Didn't like the 2 hour layover."
Pros: "Nothing they cancelled flights"
Cons: "They counselled flights"
Pros: "Comfort of plane"
Cons: "No indication given of delay. kayak knew before ground staff. On arrival parked at cargo terminal and had to get bus. Then stuck on bus for 10 minutes as could not get terminal fooors open. They turned heating up at full blast with no air. Surprised nobody passed out"
Pros: "The crew and entertainment were great."
Cons: "The amount of legroom provided for an 8.5hr international flight was far too little."
Pros: "Wonderfully professional crew. They made the flight very smooth and efficient, and I'm grateful for their hard work and high standards."

We’ve been charged for our baggage on the way back although nothing was mentioned on the first flight

Checking was smooth, staff generally all friendly, boarding a bit disorganized (I heard no announcements), plane clean and modern, etc. Check-in could potentially have been this easy though because the flight was pretty empty. You have to pay for everything including blankets, pillows, headsets to enjoy the (free) entertainment, any food, etc., but that was expected, and I have no issue with that. However, not even offering any water during the flight is crazy on an nearly 8 hour flight, especially for our kids. You can go ask for it, but they are not coming through to offer you any, presumably because they are trying to sell you drinks.

Left my luggage behind. Flight attendants were extremely rude. Got charged twice for my ticket and still no refund. Worst airline i’ve ever flew with.

Cons: "El trato de la tripulacion, la renovacion de los aviones"
Pros: "Friendly crew, comfortable seats, good boarding process!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Staff with bad attitude and willingness to help..."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and helpful and the flight arrived early, even though we left a little bit late - as such - I was very happy with the flight. The onboard entertainment system was wifi based and there was a USB charging port in the seat too - modern aircraft."
Cons: "I had no complaints - the flight was just what it should have been ie no issues"
Cons: "Seats are too close together, very uncomfortable for long international flight"
Pros: "Reasonably comfortable seat"
Cons: "Food quality was poor."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "It was delayed"
Cons: "2 hours late"
Pros: "Seat small. No air flow control for seat."
Cons: "Need more than 2 beverage services in 10 hour flight."
Cons: "More space is needed for legroom."
Pros: "The flight was good even puntual! However I waste 1 Hour of my day in check in desk, as I couldn’t get my boarding pass when I check in online."
Cons: "Awful online experience! I waste 1 Hour of my day in check in desk, as I couldn’t get my boarding pass when I check in online. it never works!"
Pros: "Cabin much too hot and no air circulation until just before pushback. Ack!!"
Pros: "Nothing -- though seat was okay. No leg room, but it reclined a little, and had those foldable headrests."
Cons: "The boarding was supposed to be by zone, but was just a mad rush. They served no food, not even for money. There was an onscreen ordering option, but for the entire flight it said "this service is temporarily closed". They didn't have a beverage cart. Not even water or coffee. I couldn't even get a cup of water to swallow some ibuprofen and an allergy pill (somebody brought a companion cat, I suspect, quite near to me). No food or water on an international flight across the Atlantic??? You've got to be kidding me -- that's gotta be close to illegal, not providing any means of hydration. But it's certainly cheap, mean, and unacceptable. Pathetic, too."
Pros: "I was not impressed with the servi"
Cons: "Counter people needs to be trained to learn how to use relationship with costumers"
Pros: "Very little - other than getting off"
Cons: "Every detail from rude checking all the way through rudness"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for hours. Very little explanations. We were herded onto flight and staff at gate were beyond rude and aggressive."
Pros: "The entertainment was good and the crew was great."
Cons: "I had ordered a gluten free meal but in the chaos of my seat moving multiple times, it got lost in the shuffle so I wasn't able to eat much of the food that was served. I have long legs and the seat provided almost no where for them to go. I was very uncomfortable by the end of the flight."
Pros: "Extremely comfortable and was served lots of delicious food"
Cons: "My touch screen froze at the beginning and I couldn't use it at all for the entire flight. Then I tried to use the headphones, but they crackled so loud in my ear and didn't work either."
Cons: "Food was poor ( cold, tasteless, meat was hard .....)"
Pros: "Nothing, the trip was terrible, the seats were awful and I had no chance to change them as I had to contact the third party. On line booking and seats reservation weren’t possible either cause I wasn’t buying the tickets directly with the company."
Cons: "Anything, terrible flights as they gave us terrible seats."
Pros: "our flight was late into MAD but they held our connecting flight to MIA, so we could make it."
Cons: "The crew was not good at all. there was no water service, one had to go to the kitchen and beg for water. in particular the male crew was not happy to help with anything. the snack before landing was served 45 mins before arrival so everything had to be rushed. Crew soiled a half empty can of soda on me, and didn't even apologize. Our luggage missed the flight to MIA and we were told it would be delivered to our house the next day between 7pm and 8pm. it never showed. I called customer service and they could not tell me anything. Horrible experience"
Pros: "Crew did get us on standby; more legroom than trans-Atlantic flight"
Cons: "6 hours too late"
Pros: "All"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Second time they lose my luggage. After 9 hours in the airport they were not able to put my luggage in the right place."
Pros: "Price to fly on this airline is very reasonable and affordable. I would fly on on this airline just for that reason alone."
Cons: "Seats are VERY small and squished together."
Pros: "I got to my destination on time/no mishaps. Kudos to the flying crew for a job well done."
Cons: "Too longer walk to connecting flight under time crunch. No entertainment . No much room,all squashed together. No snack (free/as part of ticket) on second flight."
Pros: "No complaints everything was good No delays on time flights going and returning back"
Pros: "Good short flight, we even arrived earlier at Bilbao."
Cons: "No food or drink."
Cons: "No pudimos volar a Miami nuestro destino final,porque al llamar a Iberia desde Venecia(horas antes que saliera nuestro vuelo),para informales que por llegar a bordo de un crecuro y no permitrisele a este entrar al puerto por motivos de la neblina,no llegariamos a tiempo a nuetro 1er vuelo con ellos,y nos dijeron que perdiamos la posibilidad de tomar este segundo al otro dia,17 horas despues,donde solo nos ofrecieron la posiibilidad de otro para 3 dias despues y a un precio demasiado alto,nos sentiemos muy poco ayudados y muy disgustados con esta aeorolinea."
Pros: "the AC worked. the last flight had warm air from the vents"
Cons: "flight was delayed 3 hours to begin with.. it was unorganized....no apology was given whatsoever.. plane was a bit uncomfortable. flight crew looked unhappy..I like to see people smile."
Cons: "For the first time ever an airline lost my luggage. I fly several times a year and thus was my firat time flying Iberia. What a headache and inconvenience."
Pros: "Clean plane, pleasant staff, excellent movie selection. food better than most."
Pros: "Cabin crew did reseat a passenger when there were two tallish men in same row."
Cons: "The seat on the LGW to MAD leg of my journey was very painful and uncomfortable. Seat pitch was very short. I have never seen such close seats in 45 years of flying including bargain airlines let alone more pricey higher quality airlines like British. Iberia was supposed to be an extension of British. When I arrived at MAD I went to the Iberia desk and tried to make an upgrade to their "business" class which was not up to the level of British's Premium Economy. At the Iberia desk at MAD, or online, or on the phone to upgrade the short leg of my return trip without raising cost of my whole round trip from USD $1250 to over USD $4000! years.This was RETURN part of my journey! Also was not able to choose seats ahead of time at MAD when I landed, online, or on the phone. British also said that I could not upgrade just the first (MAD to LGW) leg of my return journey. I would have to upgrade the LGW to TPA also. It is critical to me that I can physically fit into the space between my seat and the one in front. Emergency evacuation would be very difficult for all pax with the short seat pitch. My having to sit sideways with my legs in the aisle would make it more difficult for other pax to to evacuate in an emergency. Since I need a wheel chair I can no longer request the exit row as I have done for 45 years. British should be aware that bad experiences with partner airlines tarnishes their reputation. As a premier airline British should pressure partner airlines to maintain seat pitch at no less than 32 inches which is still tight for many people. Since not all partners have equivalent classes of fares, British should allow mixed classes. For example on a TPA to MAD round trip journey, it should be possible for the transatlantic legs to be at Premium Economy prices, and the short legs LHR or LGW to MAD at business class prices. Feel free to contact me."
Pros: "At this moment only the entertaiment."
Cons: "I would have like them to have been more humane and provided me with enough information so I could go ahead and get me something clean to wear right away. Tonight after I called they still don't have information on my luggage, and overall should have a better management, cause once I give my luggage to them, I expect them to care for it, that is implied on the customer service agreement."
Pros: "Decent flight"
Cons: "No snack, no drink, no entertainment - not the end of the world on a short flight, but they're categories you asked about"
Pros: "Read my experience in the disliked comment.. and you will understand why there's nothing to like about this trip"
Cons: "I know this is a budget airline, but the customer service was beyond terrible. Originally when I booked this flight, expected departing time was at 14:30 and I booked an earlier flight in accordance with Iberia. We had a connecting flight from Lisbon to Barcelona with Vueling (coshare of Iberia) which was expected to arrive at 12:00. However, it was an hour late. In addition, Vueling insisted we volunteer to check in our carry on bags due to lack of overhead compartment space. Yet when we got on the flight, there was evidently enough space. Thus, while waiting for our baggage, our flight to Oakland was already on last call. We explained our situation to Iberia and their customer service would not help us. They refused to cover the cost of our flight and stated we needed to purchase another flight out of pocket, which was quoted to be $1100+/person! Save your time and money and book with another airline."
Pros: "No vegetarian option available"
Pros: "The staff was OK for the most part. I liked the entertainment options and WIFI service was easily accessible."
Cons: "The seating was pretty bad. My seat couldn't recline (was in the last row) and the passenger in front of me reclined all the way back even when instructed to not recline so far (in passing, by flight attendants). So I spent an 11+ hour flight as a fairly tall person, in an extremely uncomfortable seating arrangement. I also noted my space issue with said passenger at the beginning of the flight and he still progressively went further back. I would've appreciated if flight attendants were more diligent about ensuring passengers are comfortable for long flights. Food accommodations were ok but they go heavy on bread for whatever reason."
Pros: "A321 feels outdated but the seats were not bad for sleeping. It was a basic 3-hour flight."
Cons: "Stuff was busy SELLING drinks and food. When I asked for a glass of water the stewardess said she would come back after this round... no she didn't. Although it didn't matter that much for such a short trip."
Pros: "The extra leg room in the exit row. In spite of the fact we had to pay extra for it, it was well worth it. The crew was courteous and professional. The flight was on time."
Pros: "Good deal and good service!!"
Cons: "Not very Organized at boarding!!"
Cons: "Two food options were beef or beef. Unacceptable"
Pros: "This was a long international flight so we got dinner, snack, and breakfast included. Food was decent, service fine, and entertainment selection was good. Also, since it was not a full flight, there was extra room and therefore a comfortable flight."
Pros: "So refreshing an experience after AA: Iberia's Airbus was clean, their staff efficient, and professional, and electronic updates were provided at every connection! WOW!"
Pros: "Standard EU flight, on time"
Cons: "Had to buy food and the sandwiches were soggy. Wouldn't accept credit cards at first, staff tried to push cash payment until finally getting a different credit card readee that worked."
Cons: "The plane was delayed after boarding and nobody accommodated the temperature in the plane, food, or informing us of what was going on."
Pros: "The crew was gentle, it was the first time I traveled with Latam and I was really pleased with the experience."
Cons: "I have no complaints about this trip."
