Delta does a great job in general. However, the “Comfort+“ seats weren’t worth the money. I sat in both seats, and I compared the width of the seats and the distance from the seat edge to the back of the seat in front of it. There was a difference of about 2” in the seat width and 1” in the leg room. Very disappointing.
Cons: "More arm space and leg room for cabin"
Pros: "Great entertainment options, best in class"
Cons: "Earlier food service for more sleep"
Pros: "Boarded in good time, friendly crew, flight was comfortable, entertainment was good - and most importantly, landed on time!"

Pros: "Flight attendants were amazing"
Pros: "I had an awesome seat 10a with plenty of leg room."
Cons: "It was as good as can be expected."
Pros: "Crew was nice. The tv/movie technology was fantastic!! Huge selection of movies that made the time fly by, and very easy to use as opposed to my other flight over. Food was good. I love that you get tons of food and drinks (more food than I could eat actually)."
Cons: "I couldn't get both of my boarding passes printed in London so I had to get it from an agent in Minneapolis. I hate that it's so hard to get a seat assigned and a boarding pass before the trip."
Pros: "The delta crew both ways between Portland and London was excellent! They saw to our every need and were smiling every air mile of the way. Plane"
Cons: "Need to have food choices available for those with allergies. Almost everything had gluten and soy in it and I am very allergic to those. I had to give away all snacks and most of my food. Even in comfort+ class the seats are tiny with little legroom. Also, please clean the bathroom every few hours"
Pros: "Food was so good. Crew was also very nice."
Pros: "Entertainment and food and service were great."
Pros: "It was horrible. Delta really should have cancelled and refunded the flight altogether."
Pros: "Amazing service and F&B offered was wonderful"

Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "Everything. Food, staff, checking in. All were great"
Cons: "Would have preferred they let me choose a window seat. I wasn’t given the option"
Pros: "The crew where extremely friendly, helpful and visible. As the flight was being boarded the gate agent saw me with my cane and she upgraded me to a seat closer to the front of the plane without being asked. Those extra little touches are appreciated"
Pros: "The crew were kind and courteous. The seat was comfortable."
Pros: "Boarding was swift and cabin crew where attentive. Baggage drop was swift and luggage arrived quickly. Global entry at ATL was swift."
Cons: "delta security in the UK is an absolute farce. The security screening at LHR was long and understaffed"
Cons: "Crew was rude and made everything seem like a chore."
Pros: "Decent service"
Cons: "I booked with KLM (sky team) two separate return bookings on via SKY TEAM JFK > heathrow (delta) Heathrow > Amsterdam (klm) On the return leg, I couldn’t check my bag all the way through to JFK even though I stayed on SKY TEAM carriers. That should be possible, otherwise the value of staying in SKY TEAM isn’t as valuable to me."
Cons: "One of the older male flight attendants was not polite. Got a ride, short response when asking him for anything."
Pros: "Good films"
Cons: "Seats cramped, legroom bad"
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Lack of subtitles on available movies & series"
Cons: "Terrible customer service. Took two business days to respond."
Cons: "I had the feeling they were short on crew staff, they were barely checking and I called them a couple of times, the blue light was on but no one came to check what I needed. At first the reading lights were not working and they got those reset at least. One choice of food was not available anymore once they got to our seats."
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Plane was tiny"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and attentive. Boarding was good - efficient and quick."
Cons: "Seats were not that comfortable. Aircraft very noisy. Competition offers a much better service. Transfer in Atlanta was a nightmare, taking almost two hours from landing to getting to the domestic gate for the next sector. only three immigration staff working."
Pros: "The variety of what you could listen to or watch. Liked the way the seats reclined. Plenty of leg room (I am short)."
Pros: "There were alot of good movies to choose from, and the food wasn't bad."
Cons: "It's always very uncomfortable to sit on a plane for a long time, but that's nobody's fault"
Pros: "Flight wasn't full so the service was very good lots of food and snacks and we arrived early too"
Cons: "Music was a. Bit limited"
Pros: "The food was excellent, as well as the flight attendants."
Pros: "Crew, food was good, comfort"
Cons: "The boarding .. We had to climb the steps to get in .. But the crew apologised"
Pros: "Extra leg room with Sky priority"
Cons: "We upgraded to Sky priority but we're not allowed to load with Sky priority. They made us wait for Zone 3. We also did not get the designated overhead space we paid for and had to put our bags under the seat in front of us. A bit disappointing to pay $240 extra and not get what we paid for."
Cons: "The entry into the Atlanta airport after landing was somewhat chaotic. We were backed up circling before landing for ~ 1 hour and there seemed to be an unusually large number of folks trying to get through customs/security - noe Delta's fault but an unwelcome experience after being in the air for 8+ hours."
Pros: "Super friendly and attentive crew. Good food. Nice new seats. Great tv entertainment options!"
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The wifi didn't work at all, the entertainment system wasn't working until they did a reboot during the flight"
Pros: "I like Delta empowering women."
Pros: "Meal quality has improved"
Pros: "Plenty of movies and music to entertain"
Cons: "Economy seats have no leg room and seats are very uncomfortable to your back during a 8hr flight. Flight attendants skipped rows for drinks, snacks, etc and would have to be called back. Paying close to a thousand per ticket, you'd expect a little better experience but oh well."
Pros: "Service was good. Attendants polite. Information good."
Pros: "There wasn't much to like. Just about everything was wrong. The plane was a newish 787, so it didn't feel old. Boarding went well because we complained about how tired we, at 70+, were because the flight was late and we'd been standing up; this resulted in us being boarded with some of the latish priority passengers."
Cons: "Everything, really. The plane was very crowded; small seats, little leg room. The meals were mediocre and the cabin staff were just barely the good side of unhelpful, officious and unfriendly The flight was inexplicably 2 hours or more late in excellent weather. No apologies given, the flight that was originally scheduled for 8 pm left close to 11 pm. While boarding the only light is a purplish ambient lighting that made it impossible to read anything, including the safety material, until the inflight entertainment was loaded up (the lights are only controlled through software-actuated virtual buttons on the screen). The inflight entertainment system is hard to use, too, designed by idiots for use by geniuses. But the very worst thing was the stress caused by Virgin Atlantic in just about guaranteeing that we would miss this flight. On our outbound voyage in January, VA, for reasons nobody knows, booked an ADDITIONAL leg from JHB to CPT on BA at 12:30 pm, even though we were already ON the earlier 9:30 BA flight we'd booked and paid for. Then, when we didn't show up for this spurious flight (because we were already in the air) we didn't book (BA swears they have evidence that VA made this booking), our return flight CPT to JBG three months later was cancelled WITHOUT OUR KNOWLEDGE. If I hadn't been interested in knowing, the day before the flight, if the return BA flight had a meal, I would have showed up at the CPT airport in April and discovered that I had no way to get to the VA flight in JHB! As it was I spent an entire day trying to get back on the flight I'd already paid for. I advise EVERYONE who uses VA to reconfirm flights over and over. There is still no explanation for this. I will never NEVER fly VA again. They are not to be trusted."
Cons: "Entertainment was working, watching movie when they said done didn't have do they were resetting system. They tried twice taking over an hour and it never came back on for anyone..... :("
Pros: "Boarding and deplaning were efficient. Crew was good. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Seat was near the restroom and there was an odor for the second half of the flight. Issues with the A/V - hum in the headphones and the touch screen only worked intermittently. Cabin temperature was a bit cold."
Pros: "Delta is known to be one of the best airlines and they stand up to it in every flight."
Pros: "Crew was brilliant"
Pros: "Uncomfortable seats."

Pros: "Good crew, comfort and timing"
Cons: "I got what I expected"
Cons: "Delayed flight made me miss my connection and spend a night in Frankfurt. Take off time, bag didn’t come out as priority, waited over 25 minutes."

Cons: "The lines in Frankfurt were horrible. It’s the airports fault though, not the airlines. We almost missed our connection."
Cons: "Had a connecting flight, both were with Lufthansa. There was an hour between the two flights. We went straight to security and immediately to the boarding gate but they had closed the gate and would not let us board, even though there was 15 minutes before the flight was due to leave. We were refused a refund and had to move flights to another airport 2 hours away and then had a 5 hour delay. We lost our car reservation as we would arrive too late to collect, we also couldn't check in to our hotel as planned as the hotel only allow check in until 11pm; we would have got there at 1am, so then had to book another hotel for the night. Airport staff at Lufthansa told us they could not help and told us to go away!"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Friendly staff"
Pros: "Crew looked after me after a family took up a whole row including my designated seat. I need up with the back row to myself so could put my feet up & chill after a less than pleasant 5+ hours wait at Munich!"
Pros: "Plane lwas delayed for 4 hours. The ground staff work hard to help out and give updated information. The Crew on plane worked hard, great service. Main issue: It was extremely cold in the plane, neeeddd to blankets to feel comfortable."
Pros: "They were great with service"
Cons: "Having to have to close my window shade so I couldn't see outside"
Pros: "Comfortable with good food, drink, entertainment and service. Flight left on time."
Pros: "Nothing really. KLM or LOT are way better."

Cons: "Too hot on plane but food was more ham expected and drinks were appreciated"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled 1 hour before departure... customer service was appauling"
Pros: "Nothing. Will never travel with airline in the future. Definitely will not recommend."
Cons: "Flights are delayed frequently which resulted in missing connection from Frankfurt to New York. On arrival, passengers are herded like animals from one point to the next with no explanation as to what resulted in the delay or given sufficient supplements for food etc."
Cons: "Attitude of staff very poor at a request for a drink of water"
Pros: "Everything as expected."
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice. 3 hour trip took 15 hours."

Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Cons: "Flight to Fresno was delayed three times. Flight time was 6:21 and now delayed until 10:21"
Cons: "Check in 2x and security 2x Then rushing about"
Pros: "Friendliness of staff Efficiency"
Cons: "Overall a very good service and no complaints but if In House entertainment was provided it would enhance the experience."
Pros: "Online check in worked well through app."
Cons: "If you leave something on the plane, don't expect for it to be handed in. My iPad disappeared on the flight. The woman at the boarding gate in Bham kept shouting at everyone, she was really rude, both flights were late taking off."
Cons: "LATE!! This is rediculous for a flight company not to be able to board on time so I miss my connection and get stuck for 6 hours"
Pros: "The short transist time in Frankfurt"
Pros: "Staff were polite Comfort ok Food was basic No entertainment."
Pros: "This is the first time I actually enjoyed a meal on a flight. It was ravioli in tomato sauce, just perfect! Superfriendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Everything.UEverything.United is suck"
Pros: "It was all great!"
Cons: "There is no entertainment so I do not know it should be rates."
Pros: "United was operating the flight. They asked for 200 to assign me seat next to the path. I found out in the plane after i got to my middle seat that they gave a good front seat close to the path to somebody who was stand by..... They also stated that they can not check my nags to Sofia since they DO NOT FLY TO SOFIA..."
Cons: "United was operating the flight. They asked for 200 to assign me seat next to the path.

They also stated that they can not check my nags to Sofia since they DO NOT FLY TO SOFIA..."
Pros: "Crew were all super polite and friendly"
Pros: "Lufthansa delivers always a great service. Good timing, schedule and service!"
Cons: "I had a short transit time in Munich (40 minutes). Munich website promises that this is possible and that gates are close to each other and if the first flight is late, then someone will help you to your next flight. My first flight was about 10 mins late. Although assistance was provided to people connecting to some of the other flights, no-one helped me with my connection. I asked two ground staff and was just told to make my own way to the next gate, which was not close. It was in a different terminal! After literally running through two terminals, I did not make it to the gate in time and had to wait for the following flight which got me home over three hours late. Lufthansa did give me a five euro meal voucher though (which doesn't buy very much in an airport cafe)."
Cons: "Because of a family illness I had to reschedule my flight 2 weeks before. Because the flight was booked through a secondary company, rebooking the outgoing flight ended upp: a) costing me as much as the whole original return flight; b) was no longer a 1 stop flight as I also had to stop in Frankfurt plus the company would not allow me to choose directly, I sent them details and then they booked what they could find; and c) I lost both the outgoing flight ( which was charged) and the return flight ( which was not changed) premium seat bookings both of which I had to pay for a second time. If I had booked directly with the airline this would have cost a transfer fee and I would not have lost the premium seat bookings. This was therefore a great expense and inconvenience. I will no longer book flights indirectly when using kayak. In future I will search using google flights and then go straight to the airline sites to book. Very disappointed. I never had this problem when booking with kayak before"
Pros: "The boarding was fast and clean, but we still Left with a little delay. The flight itself was fast and we arrived a bit ahead of schedule."
Cons: "The advance we had gained in the flight was taken up by an apron position, slow ground service and a distant arrival gate."
Cons: "27 hours of delay. Nobody cared about our booking. Almost no service counters open. Worst airline service ever"
Food could be much better.
What a great flight. Would do it again without question.
Cons: "I didn't like putting two family on different seats far from each other"
Pros: "Great service and yummy food."
Cons: "The jack for the TV was broken! For seat 4H during my flight from Helsinki to Tokyo. I paid a business class ticket but had No audio for the television! This should be fixed immediately and I think I should receive something for the inconvenience and in return for the high price ticket I purchased!"
Pros: "Fell asleep and didn’t even realise. Finnair is very friendly and the staff are super nice. I was very thirsty and asked for two cups of water instead of one and the lady was not hesitant to give me two cups in quick succession. Very good air company"
Cons: "Nothing really too bad, you get what you expected. May of been nice to have a free sandwich as it’s a non stop flight - this is because Lufthansa has one stopover and offers a free sandwich and drink."
Pros: "Crew was ok, But seats so tight, Economy size seats fitted in Business Class and so much wastage of space around seat, very little quantity and quality of food available.The flights to Delhi and Amritsar has more than 60 % Punjab Travelers and there is not even a single movie in Punjabi movie. Poor."
Cons: "Economy size seats fitted in Business Class and so much wastage of space around seat, very little quantity and quality of food available.The flights to Delhi and Amritsar has more than 60 % Punjab Travelers and there is not even a single movie in Punjabi, Please learn from Qatar Airways."
Pros: "Crew is amazing"
Cons: "Things were very scratched"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Very old plane with seatback screens or USB ports for charging."
Pros: "All good, especiallly cabin crew who appear to actually enjoy their jobs and interacting with passenger (unlike some supposedly premium carriers)."
Cons: "All good, especiallly cabin crew who appear to actually enjoy their jobs and interacting with passenger (unlike some supposedly premium carriers)."
Pros: "Overall it was a great experience with Finnair, the plane was clean and spacious. The crew was very nice and helpful. The food and drinks were great as well"
Pros: "Personal finnair were very unpleasant and offered me for 30 min flight to Tallinn wait 8.5 hours flight to Stockholm and coming next day afternoon. Everything was too bad. I had to get taxi and boat and coming in Tallinn. I lost time and money. I never going to use finnair and kayak again."
Cons: "Everything. Worst flight in my life"
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive to Helsinki and has been two days since I have inform and they said it was going to come the next flight but didn't sent it. I have been two days with the same cloths and no cleaning products, so disappointing they don't seem to care of all the inconvenience I have been experiencing."
Pros: "The nicest cabin crew!"
Pros: "Check in staff at counter in Chicago was very friendly and saved my trip by safely keeping a critical document that I accidentally left behind on the counter. Really friendly and attentive flight attendants on the flight."
Cons: "Aging seats and interior of plane were showing badly and it downgraded the ambience of the flight."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room, and I got an empty seat next to me! Food was served on time (an hour into the flight, and about two hours from the destination). The options were decent particularly the caserole in terms of portions. Plenty of overheard compartment space, even with a nearly full flight."
Cons: "The arm rest between seats doesn't raise to the full upright position, only one-half way. The TV needed to be reset by the purser due to it being stuck on kiddie mode. If you're a snacker, bring food."
Pros: "Great service, staff and punctuality"
Cons: "The food was soggy and overheated"
Cons: "Completely destroyed our itenerary"
Cons: "We missed are connecting flight"
Cons: "Flight attendants in majority were rude, didn't care, unhelpful, for business class, service was worst I ever experienced. Plane is old, pretty dirty, they don't care about elders at all, this flight really ruined my whole travel experience, I doubt I'd ever want to go back."
Pros: "The food and the crew were excellent."
Cons: "My family's seats were separated by several rows. The airport gate was not manned until several minutes before boarding time. We had to ride a bus to board the plane. There was an extra passport check. The plane had a very old and outdated entertainment system."
Pros: "HiFly is awful. Terrible food. Really not much service. It gets you from point A to B ..... but not always. Our return flight was cancelled with no reason given. Instead of a 2pm direct we were put on an 8am with a layover. The only saving grace is that our transatlantic was on Delta, which was amazing."
Cons: "Awful food No service Outsourced both flights to a low budget third party carrier Canceled return flight with no reason or apologies OR compensation (as of this moment) provided"
Pros: "My luggage was found and collected and transfered for me by Phillipines Airlines staff at Hong Kong airport."
Pros: "The Airbus 330 is an improvement over the Boeing 737 that took me to Europe (via Milan) on this trip. Unlike that flight, this plane is equipped with an updated on demand entertainment system. I attribute the upgraded airplane to the fact that this was a direct flight from HEL to JFK. Still no wifi though... Their magazine says it's coming. Upgrading to Economy Comfort is worth the fee especially if you get a bulkhead seat. Otherwise you are still pretty crammed in with maybe 6" more leg room. But the bulkhead seats are set well back from the wall to give my long legs plenty of room to stretch and get in and out of my seat. My friends in Economy looked miserable :( The chili con carne with rice was an improvement over other airline meals but still room for improvement - mostly in presentation I guess. Lingonberry 'salad' though a bit sour for me, was a nice Finnish dish to sample. Like the cheese and crackers. Departed and arrived on time. Liked the flight tracking that showed you very detailed what you were passing over and even gave us a bit of info and photos about highlights of each region flown over. Nice touch."
Cons: "This plane was such an improvement over the "bucket" that flew me to Europe that it has restored my faith in Finnair as a valid carrier for my yearly trip to Europe - like I said, probably because it is a direct flight to New York rather than connecting to another European (not Scandanavian) city like Milan. I would probably not use Finnair to access other parts of Europe for this reason. (On the departure end, the regional Finnair flight from Milan to Helsinki was also sub-standard.) I do think the check-in procedure is still cumbersome - self check in with bag check, though started at kiosks, still results in a long line just to hand off your bag to a counter agent. A few more agents would likely solve that problem... But it was better than going the other way - JFK was a nightmare! Helsinki only slightly better."
Pros: "The sitting quite comfortable, have space for the legs. Food was fine."
Cons: "One kind of ice-cream only !! Why only Vanilla ? Should have at least 2 different, to choose from."
Pros: "The flight came on time and arrived in Chicago on time. The crew were friendly."
Cons: "The sound was out on my chair, so there was no sound to the movies. The food was really kind of junky and I decided against eating most of it so I wouldn't make myself sick. The meals could really do with more produce and a few more vegan options."
Pros: "inbound crew very friendly - nice plane on outbound flight . service throughout inbound flight"
Cons: "Food was not good at all on outbound flight, limited vegetarian options inbound and was not able to select preference prior to flight. staff on outbound flight were unfriendly and service stopped after meal."
Cons: "There was no entertainment"
Pros: "The crew were lovely, as were the people checking us in at the airport!"
Cons: "We waited 3 hours to fix a water problem on the tarmack and were seated in the middle of a large group of school kids. Would have been happier without those 2 elements."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Operated by American. Delayed for 4 hours"
Pros: "Great flight and nice people"
Cons: "Because the flight was through british airways, extra baggage was $90 much more expensive than Finnair's prices. After paying that before departure to London I recieved an email from British Airways that stated an extra bag for both my flight to London and return flight to San Francisco had been fully paid for. At the airport I was told by British Airways employees that I would have to pay another $90 regardless of what my email said because their official prices are $90 each way not both. I showed them the confirmation I had recieved and all they could say was "that is confusing". There was very little empathy or attempt to help. As a result I was forced to leave the suitcase behind with my acquaintance in London and do an in airport shuffle of all of my belongings. The flight was great but beware emails that may not match up with online info."
Pros: "Everything good except getting bag after flight."
Cons: "Took over an hour at baggage claim."
Pros: "Traveled BA and it was lovely, as usual."
Cons: "The flight staff on this particular BA flight was not as accommodating and friendly as I am so accustomed to on BA. Perhaps the flight attendant in charge of our seats was having a bad day. Also, the food on our BA flights to and from NYC was not up to scratch and rather bland and ordinary, compared to their usual. that was a huge disappointment."
Cons: "Sat on runway for almost three hours. Delayed connection."
Pros: "Services, food, smooth landing."
Pros: "Courtesy of attendants, smooth flight, good service"
Cons: "Food and your TV screens are not good. Very hard to operate a touch system which is so insensitive. Movie choice rather poor as well"
Pros: "Food was better than flight to London. Boarding went well."
Cons: "Plane left almost an hour late with no explanation given. For huge plane, still cramped unless you pay loads for more room. Upgrade prices outlandish!!!"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and the flight crew and attendants were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seats were so close that we felt like cordwood stacked vertically. There wasn't elbow roon to butter my roll without elbowing the person in the next seat. The food was boring. It was very cold, despite my dressing warmly. It was a relief to board our next flight, which was JetBlue."
Pros: "Great flight, crew was very nice. I would rebook with British airways."
Pros: "And perfectly on time!"
Pros: "I did not like anything about this trip."
Cons: "Our flight from Chicago to Paris was managed by Finnair, but flown through American Airlines. This was the second disappointing flight on American Airlines. Our first flight was repeatedly delayed over three hours and then canceled. Everyone had to take a new flight the next day on the same plane which was scheduled to be fixed that morning prior to departure. We boarded the plane 45 minutes late and then were informed that the part needed to fix the plan had just cleared customs. After another hour of waiting on the plane, we taxied to the runway and the returned to the gate because another part needed to be fixed on the plane. We waited another hour and a half on the plane before finally taking off. Upon our arrival at Chicago O'Hare, we waited on the tarmac for 30 minutes before the ground crew parked our plane. Which brings me to this flight from Chicago O'Hare to Charles de Gaulle in Paris. Our flight was delayed for maintenance repeatedly for 2 hours and then a new plane had to be brought over. By the time we boarded we were almost four hours behind schedule due to a logbook problem once we boarded the new plane. The plane itself was small - the size of a domestic flight - and VERY cramped. On both of the flights we had no TVs in the headrest. This is something that I have always had in economy class on international flights. It was by far the most uncomfortable flight I have ever been on. Because of the delay, we had to reschedule one of our two connecting flights. I was assured that our bags would still arrive at our final destination. When we finally reached our final destination, we found out that our bags had been lost along the way - most likely because of the flight being rescheduled."
Pros: "About the only positive was that the plane left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "Checking luggage was a nightmare. I stood well over an hour in line. We barely made the flight, and afterwards our luggage was lost, and it still has not been found. The wheelchair that I had ordered for my travelling companion was not there, either at Manchester or Philadelphia. The seats that I had reserved were given away to someone else. Whilst the plane flight itself was okay, the airport experiences on either end were miserable."
Pros: "Flight attendants were grumpy, food was horrible (even for airplane standards), entertainment selection subpar and boarding was confusing (i.e. they was a group "b" and a group "2"- both different? ) received no nice comforts such as eye mask, etc"
Pros: "Crew was not very helpful, last time I fly Iberia."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was good"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and professional."
Cons: "Entertainment system had a few issues."
Pros: "the crew was good and helpful. They should be paid more."
Cons: "ALL my print outs say FINNAIR, your asking about my FINNAIR flight, all says FINNAIR, so I go to the airport and wait 30 precious minutes at the FINNAIR counter to check in ( there was no self check in computers) only to be told Ah, you are not on FINNAIR, you are on American and must go to the American counter. I was given my itinerary back and rushed to American and began to self check in only to realize in the rush the woman had not given me back my passport. So, I rushed back to get it, loosing more time, only to find she had given it to another agent at another American counter but not at the check in area, and it took more time to find out who had my passport. I made my flight, but if ALL says FINNAIR, how am I supposed to know that I should instead be looking at fine print to discover which airline I am actually flying on and waste time!!!!!!! It should state CLEARLY that I need to check in at the American counter. In flight entertainment was really poor in comparison to other airlines on international flights."
Cons: "Video system needed to be reset often for entire plane."
Pros: "Crew was ok and the seat was a bit uncomfortable. I am over 6 feet so I always have a bit of a problem with the seat"
Cons: "Checking in was quite annoying because BA canceled our return and over the phone but we still had to transfer all our information upon checking. Boarding rather chaotic. Random searches were not organized. Seats were okay. Food just edible. Mostly the staff was polite and there was one attendant in coach who was very pleasant. Shoulder length blonde hair, she was genuine and cheerful. It was an okay flight, but my experience was more comfortable and the feeling of being dealt with as a person was more evident on my flight to London w BA. I appreciate that the flight went well but American Airlines still has a long way to go in customer genuine service and experience."
Cons: "They checked everyone’s carry on bags, which made the boarding process incredible slow, then they made you stand on a bus until it was full, to drive to the plane to walk up stairs in the rain. I kept my bag for 20 hours, flying from Vancouver to Calgary to London and before my flight to Madrid. They didn’t care that I said I didn’t want to give it up or that I had to make a connection. Madrid’s airport is notorious for have slow baggage handling, so they are making me wait. I packed for 2 weeks in a carry on and back pack to avoid checking luggage. I am disappointed."
Pros: "Comfortable, good service and on time"
Cons: "This is the second time your plans have been late! You were late leaving from Venice to London Heathrow on August 1 which I barely made the flight to Glasgow and then coming back your flight is late leaving Edinburgh to Heathrow And my luggage doesn't make it again! You don't even serve water on the airplane which is ridiculous! Your flight crew were nice but you really need to be on time or not schedule flights with such short layover times! And I hope no one takes anything out of my suitcase! And I'm sure nothing will be done so why do you even do a survey?"
Pros: "Once again BA 297 was more than an hour late departing because BA could not get bags and cargo loaded."
Cons: "See above. If BA cant get A380 loaded for on time departure, get more baggage handlers or use a different aircraft."
Cons: "BA/KAYAK lost my seat booking details, so I had to pay again. Plane was 3 hours late leaving."
Pros: "On time, very pleasant and helpful staff"
Pros: "Very good aircraft!"
Pros: "On time. Efficient"
Cons: "No snacks"
Pros: "Modern plane"
Cons: "Tiny sized seats, very narrow and no legroom. Horrible experience"
Pros: "Hospitality from Crew members. Food."
Cons: "24 hrs delay for boarding this flight. No wheel chair provided though I booked."
Pros: "Good variety of onboard entertainment. Middle seats felt roomy."
Cons: "The staff weren't the most professional (save for one or two members) and the food was not great."
Pros: "Helpful and courteous crew"
Pros: "The staff were wonderful within my two boys aged 6 and 7. There was really good room and the entertainment of Paddington 2 and then comedy shows was a great balance. Really enjoyed it."
Cons: "Only down side was the food, had to pay, quite expensive and didn’t really get ‘a meal’ as such."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Everything well. No issues"
Pros: "Entertainment is pretty good, a nice selection to choose from. The food has improved since last year with their new menu. Crew were pleasant enough."
Cons: "I paid for an extra leg room seat, which for me was in front of the bulkhead. However, I think this caused more discomfort than comfort. There is no gap under the bulkhead to put your feet, so although you don’t get a seat in front of you leaning back, there isn’t enough room to straighten your legs out which on a 12 hour flight isn’t comfortable."
Pros: "Virtually nothing"
Cons: "Overpriced. 90 minutes late departure due to “late inbound aircraft”. Uncomfortable seats - in “Club Europe”. Abysmal food - what would be an economy snack in a decent airline. Really, don’t bother with BA. It’s Ryanair with better livery."
Pros: "Security check was quick and easy."
Cons: "The flight left 35 minutes late but arrived on time"
Pros: "The crew are friendly and do help where possible."
Cons: "Choice of food is poor, not having a full service and having to pay for checked baggage from what was once “the world’s favourite”"
Pros: "Cabin crew"
Cons: "Boarded on a bus"
Pros: "The efficiency of every sing step from booking to boarding"
Cons: "The type of the people flew with me -loud and misbehaving. Crew couldn't do anything."
Pros: "Comfortable wear in business cabin"
Cons: "Food poor. Service mediocre. Fails to compete with middle eastern competitors"
Pros: "Good service ...very convenient... reliability..... but please pleaes start using new aircraft’s I have been flying Ba 118 to London for 12 years ..... I need to update your aircraft’s .... when I do Lhr - NYE the aircraft’s are much better.... all my business friends have now shifted to Emirates because of the service and aircraft’s..... I keep flying BA because of the convenience of the direct flight and loyalty I have for the airline..... but we deserve better aircraft’s....."
Pros: "Standard BA flight."
Cons: "Delayed departure missed connecting flight. Had to rebook and travel via Munich to make meeting."
Pros: "Crew were excellent. Very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Boxes under the seat in front took up legroom (but it did ensure good entertainment options). Could have offered some more drinks."
Pros: "Flight was good . In long flight the food quantity should be increased but quality was good."
Pros: "An air steward called Frank was super cheerful and helpful. Really set a good note to the flight."
Cons: "Food was not great. Seat in Traveller Plus is hard and impossible to sleep on. Entertainment system had the same options as in August and the incomplete box sets."
Cons: "Boarding an absolute chaos, rude ignorant staff, old dirty airplane"
Pros: "The Aer Lingus staff are brilliant!"
Cons: "Nothing to report"
Cons: "It gave me a different return date"
Cons: "Full flight affected leaving time + 20 minute taxi to runway"
Pros: "The flight safety video and the crew were very helpful."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment"
Pros: "I liked that the plane landed and I survived."
Cons: "The online check-in didn't work, the phone customer service only answered after a 20 min hold and was unhelpful, the seats were so close that the seat in front of me hit me in the head when the woman sitting in it reclined, and the gate attendant was rude. People taking this flight and expecting to do work or watch the in-flight entertainment shouldn't. There is not enough space to use your laptop and when the person in front of you reclines while you are trying to read, not only won't you be able to read but you won't be able to watch a movie either (unless you are very short) since the screen is tilted accordingly."
Pros: "Entertainment options were varied and good."
Cons: "The Airbus seating in the tourist section is terrible. The seats are very close together, making it very difficult to get in and out, particularly if the person in front of you puts the seat back. On long flights we like to get up and move around a few times, and not only is it hard to get out of our seats to do this, there is little room to walk or stop to stretch. Heathrow London is tolerable if one is going to London, but as a place to change planes, it's exhausting. The various walks feel like mazes, and going from one terminal to another, even by tram, is time-consuming and tiring. We fly to Europe often, but we will try to avoid both British Airways (Airbuses, at least) and Heathrow."
Cons: "I added a quick trip to Austria while I was in Europe and timed it so I would fly back to London and then back to LA on the same day. London had a huge wind storm on 10/21 so my flight from Austria landed 1 hour late, with that I missed my London-LAX flight on BA (that I purchased via Kayak). The BA agents tried to help me but were not able to use my Kayak ticket to re-book me or at least recover some of my investment. There was no phone number provided on my reservation and after an hour of trying to help me, they said I have to buy a brand new ticket. The cost for my return and my seat reservation both were lost and my new ticket was $1,600 (and I had to spend the night in a hotel at Heathrow as at that point all US flights left for the day). I usually book directly with the airlines because I want to avoid situations like this, so it is too bad that the one time I come to Kayak I end up having to buy a new ticket that was twice as expensive as the original one.

Pros: "I haven't left Miaimi. American Airlines employees are horrible. After arriving from London they told me to pick up my check in baggage proceed to drop bag near exit 5. When I arrived it was crowded nobody know which line is for checkin and which line is for dropping the bag. I finally went to the counter and ask and the lady said, she couldn't accept it as it was 30 left before departure. She pointed me to another lady who also washed her hand. They were both reluctant and finally accepted my baggage but the security line was too long for me to reach departure on time. Horrible. The ladies who at the departure counter have different asnwer for my checked in baggage. I/m so tired from this domestic flight that I haven't completed."
Pros: "Staff was exceptional."
Cons: "First a large number of the flight was flagged for special screening which meant that they had to do additional procedures and were very understaffed as many of us talking near 100 people had to stay behind and wait for over an hour as three employees screened us in detail. This while the rest of the plane was already boarded. Thus the flight left late and arrived very late to LAX. Secondly the refrigeration on board for food was broken thus spoilong the food so we only received one meal on an 11 hour flight which we were starving and not what we paid for during this flight. They did offer snacks but when not having a full meal as paid for it is a huge let down. Thirdly why is Wi-Fi not offered on this flight. Due to the late departure and late arrival we missed my connection to TUS and was not able to make calls or email during the flight. Not acceptable. Very unhappy and will never be flying with British Airways again. I WILL ALSO NEVER LET FRIENDS AND FAMILY FLY WITH THEM. An airline as prestigious as BA needs to work better at ensuring the minimum on offering wait we the customer pays for and this did not happen. Staff was amazing and very friendly but we were very dejected and felt that your brand suffered a lot with this experience. I do hope to hear from airline about this incident as my wife and I travel constantly."
Pros: "When I traveled Lax to Denmark via London on July.13. At that time from London to Copenhagen crews only sale the food and drinks. My group tour customers were thirsty and they had to take some pills. so they asked just cup of water, but the crews did not provide even a cup of water . That time was dinner time so every people was so hungry too. And also yesterday my another tour customer was so hungry. I understand you not served food at time. but just serve them a snack or juice . Because time jet lag make them more tired and hungry. I was worked at the Korean air line before, so I understand the stewardess should do only follow the regulations. But just serve some water to hungry and tired passengers."

Pros: "always friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The boarding in London. They did not call numbers or rows so people just squeezed...and pushed ... drinks If I sit on a window seat I sometimes do not notice the serving of liquids. I would appreciated it very much if they talk to me when they serve water and juice. Otherwise I get dehydrated. Happened last year on my flight back to the US, too.I had to get up and walk back to get water(2016). breakfast Breakfast used to be better with fresh fruits and cheese.and roll The pizzas are like cardboard, I do not care about. Other wise I am satisfied. Thanks"
Cons: "The BA crew was awful. I was not feeling well and wanted a cup of tea. I didn't realize you had to purchase it. I gave a member of the crew my credit credit card she said out loud "your card is declined" several people heard and then proceeded to hand me my card and walked away. I was mortified. I, of course thinking my bank had put a hold on my account because I was outside the US, called them to find out why it was declined and was told they had no idea and they did even see the $2.00 charge go through and therefore it wasn't declined on the bank's end. The way she handled it was awful, no discretion. I was visibly ill and just needed something warm to help me feel better. Needless to say I will never fly BA again and will let my company know how I was treated."
Pros: "We had ONE customer service rep in Heathrow who was incredibly helpful and tried to help get us home. She was wonderful."
Cons: "Their delayed flight from Milan to London caused us to miss our flight from London to NY, and thus our flight from NY to Denver, which was standby. When we explained how difficult it would be to catch another flight to Denver from NY with it being the weekend, and attempting to get a flight to another airport with higher chances of getting us home, their customer service rep informed us that as long as they 'fulfilled their contract' to get us to NY, it wasn't really their problem how we got home (or couldn't get home) after that."
Pros: "We arrived safely at our destination. Our bags arrived at our destination. Plenty of room in the overhead compartment. Due to a security snafu unrelated to the airline, we arrived at the gate after boarding was over but the gate crew were gracious and welcoming and let us board. The male flight attendant was quite nice. The entertainment screen choices were decent, and the hand-held controller was a great improvement over the touch-screen variety. There were multiple lavatories available. There was a decent amount of space by the lavatories that we could use for stretching and exercising. The wrap they gave us for high tea was pretty good."
Cons: "Seats were very cramped. I was sitting on the right next to the window, and there was no room for me to extend my right leg while facing forward; I had to twist to my left and extend my legs under the middle seat in front of me (fortunately my wife was next to me so I could do this). In addition, the passenger seated in front of me decided to recline his seat, nearly knocking over my drinks in the process, which left me with very little usable space. I haven't ever felt that cramped on an international flight. The main meal was very low quality. I had the pasta and it was quite awful; the sides were quite bad, as well. One of the female flight attendants was rather testy and unpleasant throughout the flight. She, and another female flight attendant, seemed put out when passengers asked questions about the food offerings, as though we should already have known what was being served. One passenger had just woken up and seemed confused and the flight attendant was quite impatient with him. The flight attendants were quite stingy with the water and only poured out a little bit at a time; they also came very infrequently, which meant that we had to keep pressing the call button to ask for more (which made us feel bad about bothering them). They would not give us a whole bottle of water, saying that there was not enough, but did, when we asked, provide multiple plastic cups of water at a time, which just seemed wasteful (of cups, not water). The timing of drink service was also perplexing: they did not offer drinks at least 45 minutes before or after bringing the boxes of salty "movie snacks"."
Pros: "Arrived ahead of time, although flight was fully booked, boarding was quick."
Cons: "Nothing, flights to Frankfurt have always gone off on time for me."
Pros: "on time.."
Cons: "very busy no free tea coffee."
Pros: "My flight going to the UK was rough, but the flight home was as solid as being on the ground. This is my third round trip with BA and while the trip home last year I experienced poor customer service from the flight attendant assigned to our side of the plane, both my inbound and home bound flight crews, this time were exemplary. Very kind and caring. The pasta was very good."
Cons: "The single Halloween size kit-kat bar that we were given as a snack. Was so small that I naturally believed that we could take more than one. I was politely told that the singe 3.5inch twin wafers were all that we were allowed per person. We have a candy jar, in our office and with the extra supply in the supply closet, we would have been able to give everyone at least two. So, my recommendation is if you are flying transatlantic, to stock up at Heathrow for extra food. Also, the seats were very very small. I was lucky and the plane was not sold out, so both flights my seat mate and myself were able to put a seat between each other. I found myself reasoning that for the price of the flight I was paying for transport to England not for comfort."
Pros: "great selection of in flight entertainment."
Cons: "At JFK there was a long wait for the luggage, which ended up not being delivered to the carousel, after we had waited for almost 2 hours. Granted, there was some snow and some technical issue since the fire alarm system was flashing the whole time, but still, there were only two announcements made during that time, and the second one to let us know that we'd have to arrange for delivery of our luggage on the website. By that time, it was past 11;30pm and everyone was dead tired, when the flight had been supposed to land at 7:25pm. I think the blame is to be laid on the JFK installations. Everywhere I travel in Europe, airports are in brand new condition, and not only departure areas like in the US. No wonder baggage delivery was a mess after just a little snow/"
Cons: "Boarding process atrocious! First a gate change from A to C gates, requiring a train to transit. Then, after walking down a jetway, we were sent through an emergency exit, down two flights of stairs and herded onto buses, and I mean herded. We (including elderly and moms with infants) alongwith our carry-ons were harshly ordered to squeeze together on a bus until there was literally no room to move. A lengthy bus ride with very disgruntled passengers to plane was followed by another set of stairs up to the cabin door. Finally, our departure was delayed 30 minutes while the bags of 2 passengers who got lost in the airport (probably on a bus or train) were retrieved. Not sure whether the fault lies with Heathrow or British Airways, but the experience was bad enough to avoid both in future."
Pros: "They changed my seat when I asked them too."
Cons: "The stewardess told me for the last meal, that they ran out the no. Vegetarian meal so I must choose the veg one. Later he said he gave me the preference for the earlier meal so this one shouldn't be a problem if I didn't get what I asked for. Totally blew my mind. The audacity with which he gave me his explanation was extraordinary. Sorry British airways, don't need that attitude. Wrote to them about this, haven't yet replied back. The flight was pretty old by itself. Not like the ones that go from London to United States. The Seats were smaller and had a very uneasy contour, the entire plane just looked a little banged up. The crew always seemed in a rush, to busy to even hear or look around."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and accommodating. Snacks, meals and drinks were provided, as well as onboard entertainment and plugins."
Cons: "Nothing. Great trip!"
Cons: "The flight boarded twenty minutes late despite the plane being at the gate early scheduled departure. Baggage took another forty minutes to load. Then they decided there we were overweight (data that should be known before the cargo was loaded) and off loaded two people. Then after another delay they realised that off loading people meant off loading their baggagge, total delay nearly 2 hours The hedset socket on the entertainment system did not work The USB port did not work THey ran out of food after serving three rows, loaded four sandwiches, no wraps and 2 cheese plates for a full evening flight that was over 5 hours in duration including the delays."
Cons: "I wish my booking came with a record locator for easy check in"
Pros: "Amazing plane and service"
Pros: "Seats weren't too uncomfortable, and the crew was friendly."
Pros: "Everything was just fine!"
Cons: "The only issue is that my entertainment screen kept in malfunctioning which was a bit tiring throughout the flight n"
Cons: "The DVD/ movies was having an issue.., couldn’t play.. I had to ask to have it reset a few times."
Pros: "missed this flight due to delay in transit and security between connections at heathrow"
Pros: "Service, food and the cleanliness. Also the help we got in transfer, from one flight to the other."
Cons: "Nothing really much!"
Cons: "No entertainment or WiFi at all"
Pros: "Arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Was seated with 2 screaming and kicking babies behind me"
Pros: "Plane was new and clean..good leg room."
Cons: "Being told to shut window blinds and spent most of the journey in darkness. No hot drinks. Long gaps between cold drinks. Staff not very friendly."
Pros: "Customers service. The crew was awesome. They're good to me when I was sick."
Cons: "We were not able to board on this plane because we were late. We were not able to board the BA because the plane was late; taking off we have to wait for at least 30-45 minutes"
Pros: "service perfect"
Pros: "The plane was not busy so services took about 5 minutes, everyone had 2 seats minimum and generally quiet. Had it been busy, it would have been different in that seats were not very wide, aisles very small, if the seat in front reclines and you don't, you can't see your screen and not a lot of space in general."
Cons: "If you want to select your seat, be prepared to pay £175 per flight. This is ridiculous! Second meal was a very bare bbq beef pie or sweet potato pie... On their own with nothing else and it arrived 30 minutes before we landed so very rushed. On a 9.5hr flight the 2nd meal needed to be an actual meal and come sooner than it did."
Pros: "Arrived ahead of the scheduled time"
Cons: "Plane was less than half full yet the crew appeared pressured .... one crew member didn’t wait for me to complete my request and she brought me eat phones yet I wanted to ask for water to drink! Seats don’t recline much ...."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and enjoyable. Entertainment was great lots of films to choose. Service by the flight crew was excellent"
Pros: "Left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Would have preferred getting a better seat."
Pros: "Asked a stewardess to turn the heat up and she did."
Cons: "Freezing cold air conditioning. Every person I could see was wrapped up in their blanket before we had even taken off."
Pros: "Despite the long flight the cabin crew took excellent care of the passengers. Good food, entertainment and a quiet and dim cabin for napping"
Pros: "Great films and tasty food"
Cons: "Had to run to gate after two buses to reach correct terminal. Saw info that flight was closing. Held up at gate due to confusion with my boarding pass. Limited leg room on flight. End of flight huge queues at Dallas airport for security. After a long flight a passenger does not need to be corralled through excessively long winding lines."
Pros: "Finnair uses the American Airlines flight for this destination. Non-stop flight Raleigh to Heathrow (round trip).. Fantastic, on time and comfortable aircraft."
Cons: "It would have been easier to book our seat assignments if Fdfinnair had directed us to contact American Airlines directly to get seat assignments. Could not pre-select through Finnair. If you did not want the meat meal the vegetarian meals on both flights included mushrooms...not into fungi."
Cons: "Food and drinks could be better"
Pros: "Good space in premium"
Cons: "Female cabin crew were aggressive, discourteous and frankly rude to the passengers when they had to verbally communicate. I hear this so often with American cabin crew. When I started to experience this I became aware of the same trend in regard communications with other passengers. Very unattractive."
Pros: "Great aircraft, UK staff kindly assisted to get us family seating near each other"
Cons: "It was very cold on the flight, even with the blankets we were given."
Pros: "The overall service x"
Cons: "The only complaint I have is our bags getting lost twice. I’m very understanding that these things happen. But for it to happen twice seems like people might be careless to the problem."
Pros: "Otherwise great flight experience..."
Cons: "But touchscreens were so unresponsive to touch it was almost impossible to navigate between movies."
Pros: "The crew could not have been better. I was really pleased with the movie selection. However, the food is really terrible. I got a dish that was chicken, mashed potatoes and green beans, which would have been acceptable had it not been covered in bbq sauce."
Pros: "Almost everything :) Great new aircraft, really nice crew and well organized boarding."
Cons: "It is a longer flight that I would have liked, but I knew that."
Pros: "Pasta good. Meatballs we're bad. Breakfast vegetable burrito was bad"
Cons: "Very bumpy ride for such a big plane. Don't know why we didn't fly higher to get over the turbulence"
Cons: "Entertainment options were great"
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Flight was late, seats was small, all time something smelled so much."
Cons: "It was FREEZING. Uncomfortably so that we were unable to sleep."
Pros: "Because this flight was NOT full, my wife and I had the entire center section to stretch out. This made our 7.5 hour flight amazingly comfortable. The Airbus A300 was a reasonably new aircraft. Everything was clean and looked good. The food was exceptionally good. My wife and I both commented on how good the food was (my wife stated, "it was the best airplane food ever"). The main meal, the hotbox snack, and the late in flight chocolate ice cream were ALL good. The staff were great, friendly, service oriented, nice people."
Cons: "Navigating through Heathrow"
Pros: "The airplane was new and very spacious. Air hostess were very accommodating. The flight took off and landed on time. Food and snack quality was amazing. Entertainment options were plenty. Restrooms were clean and smelled fresh through the journey."
Cons: "Since my flight was connecting from London to New York we barely had a break even though we were suppose to have a 2.5 hour layover. As soon as we got off our first plane we were directed to American Airline security where they questioned me about my trip and what I did in Spain. Then I was directed to TSA where it took a long time to get through the lines. I got to my gate an hour before take off and they were already boarding. I didn't have a moment to take a bathroom break or grab a drink/snack. But again, this experience was not all that bad because all the positive notes listed above."
Pros: "Terrific meals, active flight crew and very attentive."
Cons: "Blankets seemed dirty and seats were cramped. Gate was changed but that was not communicated well, so we almost missed the flight."
Cons: "The crew was abrupt, harsh, spoke down to the passengers, sighed, rolled their eyes, etc. It's their job to serve drinks, and attend to passenger requests and needs. They made it seem like they were being put upon to get a glass of hot water or coffee. If someone asked what type of juice they had, they rolled their eyes and answered rudely. No one smiled and seemed friendly"
Pros: "More options for food like rice chicken or rice beef"
Cons: "Pls have decent meal plans and the seats were very uncomfortable American Airlines need improvement in all areas"
Pros: "The meals were excellent -- well timed distribution of food throughout the flight. Attentive staff. Good choices for meals and beverages. I liked the fact that we got ice cream halfway through the flight also, that's not a very common thing! Entertainment system was very good -- lots of choices of things to watch/listen to! I was pleased to find that there were movies available that had been very recently released that I had been wanting to see!"
Cons: "Comfort was okay, my seat was on the end of a row with three seats (aisle side) and immediately behind me was a row with only two seats. Without fail, the flight attendants bumped their carts into my chair EVERY time they passed. If I had been trying to sleep, this would be much more of a disturbance to me. Seeing as I was just watching movies and enjoying the food, it wasn't that much of an issue. However, I think it would be easy for the flight attendants to just take a second longer to try to navigate around the chair and not bump it every time. Little things like that go a long way, especially on a long flight."
Cons: "I had a 6 hour layover in London but the American Airlines still couldn't get my bags from terminal 5 to terminal 3 and i flew into Miami without my bags! Thank you for making my life harder!"
Pros: "Spacious seat, entertainment system"
Cons: "Food. Airlines need to improve this. I think a simple sandwich would be better than the food they serve"
Pros: "I liked the crew and I liked the entertainment, as it made the 10+ hour trip go so quickly. I was also able to sleep 1/2 the time. The crew was extremely nice. I would love to fly BA or AA or any of their partners as long as the fates are reasonable."
Cons: "I checked in online and had my seats reserved and I only had one piece of luggage to check in. In LAX, as long as I checked in for the flight on time, all I had to do in LA was go to a kiosk and check my luggage myself and give it to the people who work at the counter. The whole process took 5 minutes. However, even though I was checked in For my flight, in LHR, I was told that I still had to wait in the long line for those who needed their boarding passes among checking in tons of luggage. I was given a paper ticket lthough i already had one in my iPhone apple wallet. Besides waiting, for what I thought was a waste since I only had to check in luggage, the gates seemed so far away and the scheduling boards don't indicate right away as to what gate I need to go to. Luckily, my app told me what gate and I was hoping it was correct because I had to walk so far. Basically my gripes were with the airport and not with the flight itself. One thing bout the plane from London to lax, it seems the bigger the plane, the less legroom I had. I felt too close to the people next to me. The plane from Paris had more room."
Pros: "From boarding to landing evething was perfect. Flight was not overcrowded, so I could lay and sleep comfortable in economy. Crew ok"
Cons: "Very small niggle but it could be very frustrating for people. I watched the Hobbit trilogy on the flight. The films appear in the menu alphabetically. Viewing them this way leads to a 1,3,2 order.... There is no indication (that I saw) for the order they should be viewed."
Pros: "The staff were amazing. Very accommodating and with great dispositions. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "For an international flight the seats were extremely tiny and the plane itself only had a few tv screens posted in the middle of the plane so everyone had to watch the same thing."
Pros: "I thought the crew was friendly and the food was pretty good."
Cons: "The plane did not have personal TVs, which means they showed a handful of bad movies overhead and on a nine hour flight, it's hard not to be able to pick a movie or pick a TV show."
