Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "MAN-MUC & MUC-CPH via LH. Business class. LH Businesss class is middle seat of 3 is empty and larger amounts of baggage plus you have access to lounges. Both planes flew and arrived reasonably on time, which is what I look for.And I got all the Business Class extras."
Cons: "Security at Manchester was very slow - long enough make me ill from standing in one place too long. But then I was well looked after. The meals on both flights were identical; I don't think it can be a big problem to correct that. I took a long time to get accepted by the WiFi in the two lounges."
Pros: "Lufthansa is always incredible."
Pros: "Lufthansa should keep up the standard."

Pros: "Seat was comfortable and cool."
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Clean airplane, Nice seats. Very nice crew. Good connecting flight."
Pros: "The crew was nice and the movie selection was decent. Food was ok. As good as it can be when you pay $2,500 for a flight ticket knowing that they are not really there to offer you a service, they are there to make their own money knowing that as a traveler you really have no options other than an airplane if you want to go across the ocean."
Cons: "The difference here is that in a 9 hour flight you want to keep hydrated. Crew seemed lazy...they would not bring water to travelers very often...and when I called a flight attendant with the button call and politely asked if I could have some water, she seemed pretty annoyed and told me I can just stand up and go take my water in the back where they store food. NOT A GOOD SERVICE FOR $2,500!!!! It’s outrageous!! Seats become smaller and smaller...and you keep asking about my experience...$2,500 to travel seating in a miniature seat with no leg room is a bit much...and I know no flight company cares about this...we have no choice...either take that or don’t travel, right?"

Cons: "Benefits for frequent flyers and senators have been eroded significantly . also it has been made much harder to achieve status. In the past, complimentary upgrades were done frequently. nowadays it doesn't happen anymore. For someone who is flying approximately 30 times per year with star alliance, this is dissatisfying.

Pros: "Lovely crew, very helpful"

Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."
Pros: "Very pleasant, professional crew"
Cons: "Very slow check in. Mainly because other passengers obviously don't read instructions re: weight/contents of cabin bags etc. Would be helpful if there was additional staff to deal with them away from check in desk. This would mean that others did not have to queue for 25 minutes because the check in girls also had to deal with them"
Pros: "Was happy to pay extra 45.5 pounds for laugages which was hidden"
Cons: "Not happy to pay extra money for my case"
Cons: "Food had only vegetarian choices. No charging place and ambiance was noisy"
Pros: "Good entertainment options. Nice flight attendants"

Cons: "Boarding was confusing and disorganized"

Pros: "Service, technology"
Cons: "Could not print by boarding card and was not allowed to board in Amsterdam"

Pros: "Friendly staff, good service and on time departure/arrival."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Entertainment was dated and poor in function. Our bags were 99 dollars each and we’re both lost and didn’t arrive. I just filed a claim and got rude service saying I should have filed the claim at the airport baggage area but there was not anybody there to do the claim then he agent upstairs said they just spoke to them and they are there and I should have done it there. This was so rude and there is no way to get back into customs area. If we paid 200 for bags I expect them to arrive on time. I’m asking for a refund of the baggage fees."
Pros: "The aircraft was clean"
Cons: "The food was terrible, wifi was extremely expensive (Delta had free messaging over their wifi)"
Cons: "Please Endeavour to put the expiration date on the food served in the flight."

Cons: "I paid extra fee for extra bagage which was tv and i paid insurance my tv broke and no one responces for it"
Pros: "Everything. A truly faultless experience!"
Pros: "Flight was on time and quick and comfortable"
Cons: "Without any explanation the plane I was due to go to Istanbul on at 11.30 was not available. I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology. I then missed my next flight in Istanbul and had to purchase another ticket. I cannot believe that air passengers are treated in this way!!! I will follow this up with KLM when I go home from my holiday."
Pros: "From pre-boarding, to boarding, to the food, and the attentiveness, everything was top notch! The cleanliness of the plane was only topped by the friendliness of the crew."
Cons: "The flight was marked at almost 11hrs but ended up being only 9...not a negative other than it meant not spending as much time on board!"
Pros: "Usual professional and friendly service from my airline of choice for most destinations."
Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."
Cons: "Why do the crew have to slam the overhead and catering compartments to get them to shut?"
Cons: "KLM had bumped us to a later flight for no reason and again we had to call with a long wait to get our original connection restored, However, we did not get boarding passes during checking in Europe and thus had to go outside security in Detroit to the main check-in gate and wait 30 minutes to get the error resolved. Then it was back thorough security and a rush to the gate to get there in time to board. Lost our original seat assignment and wound up in the last row at the tail of the plane. Extremely poor coordination between KLM and Delta who operated the flight."
Pros: "The staff was fast and curteous."
Cons: "There is not anything to complain about besides the usual discomfort of travel."
Cons: "Lost bags"
Cons: "No inflight meal, no inflight entertainment for 10 hrs onboard."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Lack of food for long haul flight. Had to pay to eat. 43 dollars and only able to pay with debit/credit card rather than cash"
Pros: "Price was excellent"
Cons: "Long delay in Calgary for omward flight. Mass confusion at boarding gates."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Charging customers for meals on a transatlantic flight is a terrible way to nickel and dime your customers for the most basic provisions. Not all travellers carry accepted credit cards, including the woman sitting beside me. Because it is so common (formally standardized) for airlines to provide food on longer flights, many travellers assume their WestJet flight will the same and arrive unprepared. I normally love WestJet for their customer service, but these flight attendants talked down to customers with legitimate questions. I am choosing another airline for my next international flight, although reluctantly so - I hope to see some changes from WestJet for a more comfortable flight."
Pros: "I didn't!"
Cons: "Late, late, late! I was a prisoner in my seat."
Pros: "Sensible ticket price"
Cons: "Leaving Gatwick 30 minutes late had us miss our planned Halifax to Toronto. The next flight was 4.5 hours later. After a trans Atlantic, that is horrid."
Pros: "Most of the crew were nice. Captain very informative."
Cons: "It was freezing! The headphones they rented me didn’t work, or maybe it was the tablet—could barely hear the movie."
Pros: "Boarding etc was organized and efficient."
Cons: "Did not find the crew helpful or friendly."
Pros: "Flight attendants, movie on board, price"
Cons: "Plane was delayed and the baggage handlers in Denver were Atrocious!! I actually took video I was so shocked!"
Pros: "For a long flight, WestJet is the way to go! Many flights were involved in our vacation. WestJet stands out above and beyond all the rest. And what a relief, since we took WestJet for our in August flight to and from Europe. Simply no comparison in all the various aspects of a flying experience."
Cons: "The seats are comfortable, for a tall person, the legroom is Apple, climate controls are good, the service is fantastic, everything about it! These people know what they’re doing The seats are comfortable, for a tall person, the legroom is Apple, climate controls are good, the service is fantastic, everything about it! These people know what they’re doing!"
Pros: "Enough space for long legs."
Cons: "Need more variety in snacks on the longer trips."
Cons: "Haven’t yet reached our destination, it’s our honeymoon and would have hoped to have got ther by now instead of which we are having to layover in Vancouver until the next flight because of delays on first Leg of journey we missed connecting flight"
Pros: "The crew. Very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The food. Pizza was bad."
Pros: "I would give the crew 10 stars if I could! This was by far one of the best flights I’ve ever been on. I’m not a fan of having to pay/rent an iPad for entertainment, and it was a bit cold for my taste(I also had to pay for a tiny blanket). However, other than those two very minor things, it was a wonderful flight. I have never flown with a better crew, you could really tell they all actually enjoy their jobs. I loved that the pilot had a great sense of humor, he told a few funny jokes after we landed(while we were taxiing) it definitely helped make the time pass faster & I honestly think it put everyone in a good mood :) I have never been more satisfied with a flight. I will most definitely recommend WestJet to everyone I know, and will be my first choice for flying myself."
Cons: "I didn’t like that I had to pay/rent an iPad for entertainment. I was disappointed that I had to pay for a blanket & that the blanket was so small. In flight WiFi was kind for expensive and didn’t work very well, it kept disconnecting and the only thing that really worked was iMessage. Having said that, overall it was a great flight! :)"
Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful. The macaroni and cheese was tasty."
Cons: "The plane is so old that you can only use the entertainment system on your phone, which gets tiring to hold up in front of you. Even though I was on a 10 hour flight, meals were not provided."
Pros: "Inexpensive average airline"
Cons: "Pay for everything from food to bags, still better than Ryan air"
Pros: "Despite an ontime boarding, weather (thunderstorms) and air traffic congestion left us stuck on the tarmac for over 3 hours. Kudos to the captain for keeping us informed of every development and for taking the initiative to negotiate a southern flight plan routing that allowed us eventually to depart when other flights were being cancelled due to congestion in Heathrow airspace to the north. West Jet also put together a special team in Toronto to rebook passengers with connecting flights to later flights. This meant they had a new boarding pass ready and waiting for me by the time I got to Toronto, so the disruption was minimized."
Cons: "I had counted on buying my meal on the plane, so had not purchased any beforehand. Unfortunately, we ended up delayed on the tarmac for over 3 hours and they ran out of hot meals before they reached my seat row. I had to make do with crackers, cheese and fruit as my dinner. Lesson learned: always reserve my meal (or buy one) before boarding my flight - you never know what kind of delays will occur. To be fair, the crew did offer me a free glass of wine to go with it, which was a nice touch."
Cons: "Unable to hear updates from the crew. Sounded garbled"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "As it was a budget flight, all food had to be purchased and the cost was high for the quality received"
Pros: "Crew, as usual, were the best thing about this trip"
Cons: "Chairs are not that comfortable"
Pros: "Seats. Great crew members"
Cons: "Having to pay for everything"
Pros: "The basics were all up to standard, the flight was very full and because it's such a long flight it is expected to have a few discomforts from time to time..."
Cons: "TURN DOWN THE VOLUME on the announcements, it was so loud I could feel the book I was holding in my hands literally vibrating. I had to plug my ears to tolerate the blasts over the PA. I requested the volume be turned down repeatedly but it was never changed... from London to Calgary. More frequent offers for food/beverage would be appreciated, there were only two rounds made for the entire flight of almost 9hrs. It's just nice to have a bit more flexibility..."
Pros: "Very fast today"
Cons: "Man these flights are boring"
Cons: "Food charges + hours to wait for a hot drink (tea)"
Pros: "Piot gave clear and timely announcements as flight was delayed do to weather,. In-flight crew were friendly and providing a relaxing environment. The include meal was very good."
Cons: "Plane is showing its age. Bathroom was in terrible condition."
Pros: "The economy class seats were surprisingly comfortable."
Cons: "It's a personal taste thing, but I don't like flights where it is necessary to separately purchase all the normal things that other airlines provide on international flights (blankets, wine, food, etc). I'm sure others appreciate that level of economy, however."
Pros: "Re-booked on Westjet after my WOW airlines was cancelled. Didn't know what to expect - pleasantly surprised, Great service from top to bottom leaving Gatwick Airport. Will make them my top preference in searching future flights out that way."
Cons: "Nothing - the entire experience (check-in, flight, deplaning) exceeded my expectations."
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "Waitjet did not perform preventative maintenance and had to change a tire at Gatwick delaying flight by 2 hours with terrible/late/inaccurate information about when flight would resume = FAIL Result was overnite in Toronto. Lets see how the 6:45 (3446) goes ?"
Cons: "It wasnt possible to connect to entertainment system or wifi even though I had paid for wifi"
Pros: "Cancelled the flight and was utter chaos with no direction what so ever."
Cons: "Staff would not communicate with the passenger's."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Delays, poorly managed. Ridiculous solutions. A flight that last about 7:30 hours. Turned 36 hours. Bad experience."
Pros: "It was a smaller aircraft and the staff were friendly"
Cons: "was right at the back of the plane and could not hear the announcements clearly."
Cons: "ONE WAY TICKET Vancouver TO Tel Aviv was about $560 c.d -all- included. Went well 3 flights well. Ticket back from Tell Aviv took 4 flights , around $900cd . had to pick-up the suitcase each airport.., and pay for the suit case separately.."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Delays. Canadian debit card not accepted on flights even though an American debit card was."
Pros: "I will never travel with west jet again"
Cons: "Everything Staff was so rude"
Pros: "Exact on time."
Cons: "Refreshment should have more choices"
Pros: "Glad I could rent a tablet"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "That the fare advertised didn’t include a seat or a suitcase. Very unfair comparison."
Cons: "I don’t understand how Westjet can get away with 1. Not providing food on a flight of this length, 2. Charging for the entertainment system which has basically no content"
Pros: "Decent selection of movies."
Cons: "No meal included in 7hrs oversea trip. They had 3 services - two snacks and one coffee only.othereise, food was for purchase only. No checked luggage included."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Terrible food options. Sandwiches and croissants vastly overpriced: $8 for a croissant ($1) with a slice of cheese (25cents) and ham (50 cents) is ridiculous. Flight delayed on the ground for 1 1/2 hours."
Pros: "More leg space than I was used to and pretty spacious bathrooms (I'm 6'5")"
Cons: "The purchased Wi-Fi went down immediately and didn't come back up until 8 hours into the 10 hour flight."
Pros: "Food was great and fresh. Staff was friendly and gave us extra snacks for the kiddos."
Cons: "Took a very long time to serve any food or drinks after being told we could order at anytime, tricky with two little kiddos."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system was playing up"
Pros: "The crew and their attitude"
Cons: "The planes are worn out with the result that they often have mechanical problems. When the new promised planes arrive this will be a great service. The saving grace of the current service really is the personnel, unlike US carriers if they can help they will."
Cons: "The toilets were very dirty"
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The gate in LGW was one of the farthest in the aiport. The flight ia 8.5 hours and the ticket is not cheap. But you have to pay for everything. Even onvboard entertainment. The only free thing is the soft drinks and that is even rationed. I flew with worst airline and for long flight they at least give a free meal."
Pros: "My flight going to London was a train wreck...missed connecting flight, awful service and charged extra for a backpack that was called ”oddly shaped.” However, the return flight was the exact opposite, amazing service, free check-in because of my experience earlier and upgraded seating. I appreciate that they corrected what had gone wrong. Nicely done!"
Cons: "More room under seat in front of me"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Good on blankets and pillows. Clean Airplane. Good leg room."
Cons: "7 hour flights should have a small meal. We didn't even great pretzels or peanuts and only one beverage service the entire time. Iceland Airs airport logistics also near great improvement."
Cons: "Icelandair has decided to make tickets cheap and baggage charges outrageous. My fault for not reading more carefully but I will not fly this airline again."
Pros: "I was fortunate to get an empty seat next to me."
Cons: "Staff are impeccably dressed but not really friendly. Seats are uncomfortable."
Pros: "Lots of films and tv shows to choose from, polite staff, timely flughts and a nice place to spend a layover."
Pros: "plane was comfortable, smooth flight"
Cons: "could use more up to date movie selection, crew did NOT smile, food was at an extra cost"
Cons: "We were delayed for many hours with no information given as tonwhy. Also never offered meal vouchers or other compensation."
Pros: "Excellent everything!"
Pros: "The staff was very nice"
Cons: "We were delayed almost 45 mins sitting on the plane without being told why to finally learn we were waiting for a different late plane"
Pros: "Seating space was good, not cramped. Boarding was well organized."
Cons: "No snack, even pretzels, with beverage service."
Cons: "They had 5 flights departing within 15 minutes all leaving from the same gate area. It was a zoo! No one could get to their gate. Our flight left late. I'm sure the others did too! Icelandair doesn't serve any food; not even peanuts!"
Pros: "The seats were roomy and comfortable, there was legroom. The plane did not feel overstuffed even though it was a packed flight. I also liked how they gave messages on the monitors."
Cons: "More food selections for sale would have been nice, especially fruit and veggies."
Cons: "Customer service and supervisor had distained attitude, will not travel with Icelandair again"
Pros: "Excellent selection of Icelandic films!"
Cons: "I STRONGLY encourage you to move away from offering EVERY passenger a small bottle of cold water when boarding! Please think about just how many plastic bottles are being needlessly created and then thrown away EVERY DAY! The water is apparently from some very good spring in Iceland... but think about all the plastic bottles that are going to was up on your shores EVERY DAY! It's a very bad trade-off if you ask me. (Which you did via this questionnaire.) And on a loosely related point... At Reykjavik airport (which was a packed chaotic mess the day we passed through) I could only find ONE fountain (downstairs by the toilets) where passengers could refill drinking bottles. I went down three times to fill our bottle and every time there was a line of at least 10 folks. Clearly people want to use refillable bottles but it sure makes it hard when there is only one location to do it. Throw in at least a half dozen of them around the airport please."
Cons: "My cat was forgotten in Iceland."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and friendly."
Cons: "There was about 5 hours between the first beverage cart and the last one. I was pretty parched by the time the second one came around."
Cons: "Seats suck."
Pros: "The separate cabin"
Cons: "The business seats did not have leg elevation & did not lie flat making sleep difficult. Comfort was compromised since I could not elevate my legs"
Pros: "Using SAS lounges"
Cons: "The aircraft was of older vintage as was the business class. The seats were actually uncomfortable with little padding and no lumbar support."
Pros: "Liked the bigger plane, where you could stand up. This was the nicest of the 4 Icelandair planes we traveled on."
Cons: "Seats don't recline enough for sleep, and are curved in an odd, uncomfortable way. The drinks are very very small, pretty inadequate."
Pros: "Super easy and the cost was amazing!"
Pros: "The ride was comfortable and easy!"
Pros: "Smooth ride, good customer service"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "Sat in exit row for the leg room but ended up with a bruised tailbone from the seats cross support. Could barely sit for a week"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and professional. Seats comfortable enough. I like flying through Iceland. Nice change."
Cons: "I wish I had booked a couple days layover."
Cons: "When we arrived in Reykjavik from Munich we had 45 min to make our next flight. We were able to make it to our gate in time but once we got to our gate it was a mad house. The airport is fairly small and Icelandair was trying to board 4 other flights to the states at the same time as ours. We had to push and shove to get to our gate to board. Not sure why they didn't spread out the gates of the boarding planes."
Pros: "airline is good overall"
Cons: "Seating is not roomy enough for long flights"
Cons: "When we arrived at Keflavik airport the terminal was immensely crowded with several flights due to leave the US at once. It was overcrowded to the point of being uncomfortable and there was a 30min+ wait to buy food from the only shop. As a result we did not have time to grab a bite to eat between flights. My partner was subjected to additional TSA checks which I am aware is a random check and a nescessity but due to the amount of flights departing for the US this took an extra hour, and delayed our flight. I'm thankful that Iceland Air didn't leave without us but it was an immensely stressful experience that I don't wish to go through again."
Pros: "Nothing to like except that we finally got here."
Cons: "Late departure. Not enough fuel in plane so had to refuel in Minneapolis. Even with headwinds, there should have been enough fuel put into the plane to complete the trip. They stopped in at an airport that was experiencing thunderstorms, and while we were refueling, our plan was struck by lightening and then had to to be examined for damage before continuing on. We were on the ground, in the plane, for a total of 4 hours, waiting. Finally were advised that the crew had "timed out" and could not fly any more that day, so we spent the night and all the next day sleeping on the floor in the airport. Icelandair was not at all prepared for such a situation. Situation was somewhat chaotic with incomplete and inaccurate information given to passengers. Very poor communication on the part of Icelandair, or whoever they contract this function to. We expected to be able to leave the airport the next morning, but were told that the flight would not leave until 5 p.m. Then they changed the time to 8:20 p.m. but didn't announce that. Then that flight delayed until 9:00 p.m. We finally got off the ground a little after 10:00 p.m. On top of all this, many passengers' entertainment systems did not work, and this made for a very long and frustrating flight. Not good, Icelandair."
Cons: "Our plane was diverted to refuel - after an hour and a half of increasingly cryptic and contradictory communications while sitting on the ground, we were removed from the plane and given cots to sleep on the airport floor. No staff present to provide information, no communication by email, noone available by phone, no updates on the website, vague rumors from another airline's staff of a "possible flight" the following evening.....no idea how/when we'd get back to Denver. We got a car and started driving...huge vote of no confidence in Iceland Air, its equipment and staff."
Cons: "Had to paid for chips"
Cons: "always delays!! super slow boarding on the plane"
Cons: "No outlets a big converter box under the seat so I had no footspace."
Cons: "Attitude of employees, totally cold and unhelpful. Is this your culture?"
Pros: "the plane seemed safe"
Cons: "no seats in the airport; long wait for boarding and totally confusing/interfering messages on airport PA system; chaotic boarding "process""
Pros: "The air personel were really professional, nice and accomodating except for the flashing light of the duty free cart at 2am in the middle of a dark sleepy plane."
Cons: "Where to start? I'm traveling with my wife and we decided to consolidate our stuff in one luggage since she is pregnant and I don't want her to carry any bag... We are allowed for 2 luggages of 23kg each combined it's 46kg, our bag was 30 kg. Through my previous trips with various airlines we had no pb with that until we reached the check in counter, the lady very politely explained that she has to charge me 35£ back and forth for excessive wait on the bag which I found outrageous so i had to squeeze a bunch of stuff in the hand luggage to send it as a cargo Then she infomed us that the plane is gonna be late for 1h while eventually it was delayed more than 2 h On the plane the staff was very friendly however the variety of food is so limited and the hostess passed by in the middle of flight with the duty free cart decorated as a Christmas tree while the lights were off and everyone was sleeping Finall we reach the airport, the bags took 45 minutes to reach us I love Iceland but i will not book with the same airline again"
Pros: "The whole flight was a very pleasant surprise, I would recommend Icelandair to anybody looking to fly from the USA to Europe"
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "WiFi for purchase!"
Cons: "See above. On the flight from Denver to Amsterdam (you didn't ask about this, but I'll comment anyway), we had business class seats. They were really little more than large regular seats with legroom. We did get food on the flights, unlike the economy class. I have a major gripe about Icelander not telling you how their definitions of seating class differs from the rest of the Western airline industry. Quite deceptive."
Pros: "The flight attendants were really really sweet on both flights i took to get to Paris. Good food (I was already aware I woo have to purchase) and enough leg room for my and husband, 6'1", and I, 5'11". Good value for the price."
Cons: "My flight was serviced by British Airways. The temperature in the cabinet was very warm and there were no fan controls. The seats are very narrow. Miserable 9hr flight from London to Denver"
Pros: "Flight crew was amazing. Food was good and there was plenty to make the time go by faster."
Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "In general I like the flight stability of 747s. However the seats were very cramped for such a long flight, and unlike more modern aircraft, the seats lean way back pinching the person behind. Entertainment system is rudimentary at best, with few choices and a minuscule screen (but I shouldn't complain, at least there was something to watch). Also, at Heathrow airport (nobody's favorite airport) we had to board buses to get to the airport and walk up stairs. Inefficient, and difficult for older passengers such as myself."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and food service was good"
Cons: "Not a very big or good quality selection of movies and viewing screens were hard to see"
Cons: "Staff and crew were courteous and helpful. Seats were comfortable."
Pros: "Things went as planned in the beginning. The young lady who checked me in at the BA counter was very friendly and helpful. The preboarding and boarding went very smoothly as well."
Cons: "The plane boarded as usual then things went wrong. There was apparently something that went wrong with furl getting into a separate storage tank (that's scary in itself...how does that happen?) and they announced that they couldn't get the fuel tank to fill completely and the mechanics needed to get a "special tool" to complete the process. Then they needed some "tool" to drain the fuel from the mysterious storage tank. That was done and they announced that they had decided that they had plenty of fuel to make it to Denver. An hour and a half later of sitting in a sweltering hot cabin the y announced that the mechanical issues were taken care of BUT we'd have to wait another 20 minutes to take off because of the traffic waiting to leave Heathrow."
Pros: "Direct flight London to Denver. Check in and boarding very easy, friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Seats very close together, entertainment poor (and not working for first hour of flight)"
Pros: "Do the upgrade if its available!"
Cons: "long delays between segments of the flight however the business class BA lounge was excellent . Entertainment systems on the 747 aircraft are getting dated"
Pros: "Very professional and friendly employees. Someone fainted in our cabin and the crew members took very professional care and offered the passenger oxygen."
Cons: "Very packed cabin, offered us just a sandwich after the first main meal."
Pros: "Food was decent and they came back to offer us another drink."
Cons: "Plane was old and dated. No usb or outlets to charge any devices on a 10.5 hour flight. Also seating was small and cramped. I wish there was a way to automatically get an isle seat or emergency row seat if you are over 6ft tall."
Pros: "747s are good stable planes in flight"
Cons: "The greatest problem was dealing with the usual chaos and discomfort of traveling through Heathrow airport. Primitive and time-consuming transportation system between terminals- Had to ride overcrowded buses packed with so many people that your body was pressed against your neighbor. Inadequate number of restrooms and poor signage to find them. Bad selection of restaurants. Then at the terminal, boarding time listed as 10:40, but they did not even announce the boarding gate until 10:40. Then a 10 minute ride on another overcrowded bus to the plane which you had to board by a staircase (and a staircase to the door on a 747 is no small thing!) Although flight was smooth in the air, the pilot landed so "hard" I thought the landing gear must have been damaged!"
Cons: "The transfer from T5 to T3 was chaotic. Queues to join queues to get the transfer bus. People were getting caught on a moving escalator because the crowd in front had nowhere they could go to make room. Extremely dangerous! It took longer to get from T5 to T3 than it did to get from Dublin to London. Boarding in T3 for the flight to Denver was almost as bad. Bodies everywhere, no organisation and no help. Then the aircraft itself was so old with uncomfortable seats and an almost unwatchable screen. I will never transit through LHR again."
Pros: "Crew was nice and we all have individual video screens"
Cons: "No charging stations for electronic devices"
Pros: "On-time/early arrival, relatively communicative staff who also provided timely service. Bags delayed upon final destination."
Cons: "Seating became uncomfortable after so many hours. Boarding times long. Staff was at time over the top with their checks."
Cons: "terrible seats. unable to recline my seat. horrible experience for 8 hours..."
Pros: "I liked the fact that the customer service on board was pretty spectacular & very clean bathrooms."
Cons: "It was extremely warm throughout the flight and the seats weren’t too comfortable."
Pros: "plane was not full so plenty of room to move around etc"
Pros: "Everything was great , food was excellent and included clotted cream !!!!"
Cons: "transfer from terminal 5 to terminal 3 - process was unclear"
Pros: "Meal from Lagos to London was good"
Cons: "I don't know why spray was used on Lagos flight to London and London flight to Denver no spray."
Pros: "Competent crew. Arrived early."
Cons: "The plane was so old it had signs that read, no smoking in the lavatories. The entertainment screen was small and slow to respond. Should be in a museum."
Pros: "Checking documents on entering gate area rather than at boarding time, made for more efficient boarding"
Cons: "Delay in baggage reclaim due blockage in system"
Cons: "very little food! chairs r too tight and tv screens r rediculously small... no usb adaptors to charge ur phone, no toilette seat covers!"
Cons: "Nothing was impressive at all"
Pros: "British Airways code share is always nice"
Cons: "Older 747 not quite as nice as the Dreamliner but it made it!"
Cons: "Nor too many good movies to choose from. I get it , row number 47, don't expect any 1st class comfort, but still, i was glad to land in Denver. Started to run out of sitting positions that didn't hurt."
Cons: "Flying is uncomfortable and painful. The seats are thin with little padding. I kept getting poked and prodded by the person in the seat behind me, and it wasn't even a little kid kicking the seat. I have a problem with my foot, and there is piece of hard plastic or something that runs the length of the plane, under the aisle seat. I had to make sure my foot didn't rest on time because it was painful to my foot."
Pros: "Fight was on time. BA Crew always do a nice job."
Cons: "The entertainment on the flight didn't work. It is not easy to have two small kids on a 9 hour flight when the entertainment system isn't working properly. We did bring our own items to entertain our kids but with the limitations on what you can carry on we were banking on them being able to use the in flight system."
Pros: "Everything was first-rate"
Cons: "The inflight movie service is, in our opinion, worthless because of the noise. If you had closed captions available that would work."
Pros: "I'd like to mention Ramon, a crew member on the flight, who was extremely helpful and kind. Also, the food was quite good."
Pros: "The first class steward who helped us when he didn't need too. The free films."
Cons: "I flew British Air in the past and had excellent service. I actually would have paid a bit more to choose them as an airline. No longer! Horrible service. Our stewardess was rude and unhelpful. Best example, when my husband turned in the remains of his last meal, something had leaked over his tray table. She didn't bother to help. He luckily had some extra napkins. She watched him clean it up and then left without taking the soiled napkins. Thanks. The meal quality was poor on the international flight. American handled the start of our vacation. Such a superior international flight quality compare to British Air."
Pros: "Service, comfort"
Cons: "They lost my bag due to flying a 3rd party "Vueling" and did not add my FF# and would not do it at the airport so now I have to sort through online pages and phone queues to do something that definitely should have been feasible and included at airport (I added it on my outbound flight but because of this 3rd party being the originating operator of my return flight it was not included on my return)."
Pros: "The staff was friendly. The food was great. There was plenty of entertainment to choose from."
Cons: "Antiquated and glitchy entertainment system on the 747-400"
Pros: "LOVED the folks on this airline. So nice and accommodating."
Pros: "Crew were attentive and competent."
Cons: "The food was just not very good which is a bummer since it was a long flight."
Pros: "Flight on time. Seats/pillows/blankets were clean. The crew was professional - high quality interaction that makes the difference between BA and other airlines. (other airline crews can be abrupt, rude, ignore passengers, especially with getting water outside of service times, standing while waiting to use lavatories, etc.)"
Cons: "Some garbage from prior flight in seat pockets of 2 seats we occupied. Entertainment system is a bit clunky, film choice not very good."
Pros: "Fantastic chicken curry! Best airline food EVER! Nice stewardesses too....."
Cons: "I suppose I expected a slightly bigger toilet on a 747, but no biggie."
Pros: "I liked the polite and friendly manner of the flight attendants."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over an hour after boarding, and the temperature was uncomfortably warm. Even after takeoff, it took several hours for the temperature to cool down to normal. I have not experienced this before and wonder why it took so long to cool. All of the passengers around me were complaining of the heat.."
Cons: "We paid extra for what we thought was isle seating. We did not receive the isle seating. We were in the seat directly behind the isle seating. It did not seem to have any more leg room than any other seats. Just concerning as we paid extra for what we thought was extra leg room? Rest service was Excellent. Staff and food was great."
Pros: "Love how wonderful and kind the crew were. We asked for extra dessert because the chocolate cups were so good...and they gave us the extra dessert."
Cons: "Boarding took forever as there was an issue with boarding systems for BA at Heathrow. We were delayed by almost an hour. In addition lines for dropping off baggage were rather long."
Cons: "Our British Airways flights were cancelled going & returning on the trip. This resulted in rebooking in both directions, at different points in the trip. The cancellation on the return trip was extremely inconvenient since we didn't have a phone to contact BA. After wondering the airport on the day of our departure, for a BA representative that could help, we were directed to a ticket sales office. Then after waiting for another one (1) hour in a line, the BA representative rebooked our return flights. This was not a good way to start or end a trip!"
Cons: "Boarded and our 3 year old fell asleep. sat on the plane for 50 minutes before being told to get off the plane. Ended up with a delay of almost 6 hours. sorry, very frustrated."
Pros: "I liked the food and getting the complimentary wine for dinner, the free movies and we were able to change our seat assignments easily."
Cons: "Our flight out was delayed 7 hours and we still had to be at the airport for the original departure time. We were uncomfortable in our middle seats on the way out as well. Also, it would be nice to get refills on coffee or tea during the flight. I asked for a second cup of coffee and was turned down."
Pros: "In flight service and food were excellent"
Cons: "My TV monitor didn't work. Crew couldn't get video on demand to reset."
Pros: "Food, fast and efficient boarding, only a small delay, fairly comfortable, and great entertainment!"
Pros: "Direct service from Denver to Europe is great."
Cons: "The economy seats are rather cramped for a flight that lasts 8-10 hrs, and the price difference for more comfort is often is prohibitive."
