The flight was full and given the high Covid infections I would have liked people, including the crew, to wear masks
Minimum two kind food options
Boarding process very poor, no annoucements about preboarding document checks, confusion about what documents were needed forCovid19 vaccinations.
Missed the flight and the had to change my booking
Pros: "Wasn't awake, can't say"
Cons: "Probably it would be nice to have a bit bigger screen with general information about the flight and local time"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Please make an announcement to passengers to not be dismissive if their surroundings. Passenger in front of me was has no regard for people behind him. Kept throwing himself in seat aggressively which cause water/food on trail to fall over. Thanks"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and worked very hard to keep our stomachs full! I loved all the free movies!"
Pros: "Seems that the exit row seat was very narrow!"
Cons: "Be on time"
Cons: "Actually making the flight"
Pros: "Quick and easy."
Cons: "Attitude of the flight attendant."
Pros: "Crew good"
Cons: "Baggage small bag forced to check"
Cons: "They charged about $230 to convey my skis, compared to about $80 for the first bag. This is such ab unexpectedly big difference as to be a trap. Swiss Air are, in my opinion, con artists. Do not fly with them."
Cons: "They ran out of the dinner with meat option. They offered sandwiches to some people as a snack but not sure why some people got them. The crew is okay not that friendly."
Pros: "the crew was great."
Cons: "they asked us to check in our carry-on because the plane was full.I had important papers so I had to explain my situation. I hate confrontation so I felt anxious and I'm already an anxious flier. I feel that this should only pertain to people with larger carry-on. my was below the average size."
Pros: "Steward Very pleasant, helpful and accomodating."
Cons: "No information on the flight about how to proceed with our missed conncetions nor anyone to meet in Zurich at gate with information."
Cons: "Despite listing items desired for breakfast per seat assignment, flight attendant still got it wrong."
Pros: "Efficient, excellent staff and service, beautiful plane"
Cons: "There was a nearly impossible connection time in Zurich."
Pros: "Overall everything was great"
Pros: "A good airline and a good flight. Lots of entertainment options."
Cons: "Zurich is a confusing Airport, where signs are not obvious, and the queues are poorly formed. They should improve that for sure."
Pros: "The new plane with private screens"
Cons: "The headset outlet is still the old one, so you can't use your own ."
Cons: "Seats and handling of luggage"
Pros: "good entertainment system, modern aircraft , friendly and competent crew"
Cons: "It was delayed almost an hour."
Pros: "Friendly service. Efficient. More leg room than most other airlines. Decent entertainment. Decent food."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "staff were very helpful"
Pros: "This time I was really happy with almost everything. All crew members were nice and friendly. The food was tasty and plenty. The craft was clean and specious On line check easy and smooth. I paid my extra luggage online too for cheaper then in airport"
Cons: "My tv didn't work at the beginning but after the crew member reset it everything was perfect Thank you Swiss! ❤️❤️"
Pros: "The flight had a delay but managed to (partially) make up for it."
Cons: "Boarding was a little slow. Perhaps it would be nice to more explicitly explain to people how to more quickly stow their luggage and then sit down in order to let other people through. The seats felt a little more cramped than usual."
Pros: "Food is decent"
Cons: "Really old air crafts with disgusting seats, I don't know when they were cleaned. Wifi options given are horrible, If you really want to provide this option at least provide like full flight or in increments of hours not by data limit, this shows how archaic is your business thinking is!! You have to seriously update .."
Pros: "Getting off the plane after 11 hours of turturous discomfort."
Cons: "I am not unusually large but it is clear that the seats on your planes are completely inadequate for anyone other than a child. There is no possible way for anyone who isn't seriously sedated to sleep or even sit for any extended period of time in what amount to slightly cushioned coffins. I literally spent an hour in the toilet trying to fall asleep because at least in there I had room to extend my legs. At least in there I could actually breathe (the ventilation system is totally inadequate for anyone sitting near the windows and results in horribly stuffy and uncomfortable air.)"
Pros: "Both the food and service were fantastic. A great choice of mid flight entertainment"
Pros: "Crew is great and took great care of us. Flight was on time and that is always a plus."
Cons: "No entertainment on this plane, which is okay. But even the magazine is pretty lame. Food was ok, although not particularly substantial."
Pros: "The crew was very good--attentive and helpful. The food was excellent too, as they offered regular liquid refreshments and several snacks plus a meal. The chocolate was a special treat."
Cons: "My seat had been given to someone else also, and they boarded before me, so I had no seat for some time. I was told to stand in the back, which I did for a long time. Eventually I sat down on the edge of a place and a stewardess snapped at me. I've had back surgery recently, so all of this was very difficult. Finally given a seat. No internet--big drawback on overseas flights. On our trip there, one bathroom was a mess, plus out of toilet paper. Told the stewardess, and they closed it for a while--took some time for it to be attended to. The entertainment choices are VERY slim--don't know why a more extensive list of choices could not be made available."
Pros: "Fantastic flight attendants, good food. I felt safe throughout the whole travel."
Cons: "The flight crew was horrible. The desk crew inept. A wheelchair was requested but not there on checkin. Pre boarding did not happen as was supposed to. Older person male at desk was rude, insulting and sarcastic. This did not happen on Boston end. The person was there with wheelchair at the Boston gate and assisted us. Not in Zurich. What about handicap travel? Swiss????"
Cons: "Video screens didn't work. Seats were terrible and some broken. Flight crew was useless."
Pros: "Comfy, loved the individual Tvs and food was great!"
Pros: "Polite cabin crew. Quick check- in at JFK"
Cons: "Inability to add TSA pre-check to my profile. Very slow check- in process in Geneva. Cramped seating ."
Cons: "While waiting for boarding I overheard a young woman, who was traveling with several companions, screaming to her mother on the phone that she and her friends had all gotten bedbugs and were in agony! She was making plans to leave all of her bags in the driveway when she got home. I discretely let boarding staff know and was told there is nothing they can do about it. They also cannot change my flight, or my seat, in the event that I am seated next to the person with the issue. They did give me a bag in which to place my carry on before storing it overhead. But once on the plane, I realized that my checked bag would be thrown in with everyone else's. In addition, I had forgotten to preorder gluten free food. The airline had nothing gluten free to offer me on a prolonged international flight and did not even offer to produce any gluten free snack (peanuts? cheese?) to tide me over. My luggage is still sitting in my car awaiting a process. However, in the unfortunate event that it has come into contact with bedbugs it may be too late :("
Pros: "I was offered several snacks throughout the flight, which helped to pass the time and gave me the opportunity to drink water, which helps a lot."
Cons: "Seats were very tight in the cabin. I don't know of an airline that does not jam seats into coach, so this is expected."
Pros: "Good communication, helpful and friendly staff, usually on time, and better than average food & beverage options."
Cons: "Entertainment system is limited and touchscreen was not calibrated so I had to use the handset."
Pros: "The flight went very smoothly. This was my first international flight and it was a very successful flight. I enjoyed the meals and the flight attendants were very polite."
Cons: "I did not like that the very impolite lady sitting directly in front of me reclined her seat as far as it could recline. As my seat was unable to recline this provided little to no leg room. She refused to compromise. Luckily, I was sitting next to a couple nice gentlemen who switched seats with me."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, quick boarding, great crew, good pilots."
Cons: "My laggadge was left behind in Zurich (with my medication). Given age of electronics how hard it to make sure that everything is loaded? Not hard at all. They located Laggage at 12:30, but took them 7 hour to ship to Barcelona, so it arrived at 7:30 pm to Barcelona airoport. And they only delivered next day. Not cool. Advice: read laggage tags to reading device during loading and compare with transit customers flight database."
Cons: "Lack of accessible bathroom in Geneva airport"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Plenty of space since plane was not full. Legroom was better than usual for economy seating."
Cons: "Entertainment system was old with slow response. Movie offerings were also dated."
Luftansa over booking I canceled my flight 2 days before I left, so I called to reschedule but didn't answer, so I had to cancel. This has ruined my vacation plans and I already had to pay 3 days for a hotel reservation in Barcelona. I don't think I'll ever book this flight again in my life.
Plane delayed and we missed our connecting flight.
Better options for food, friendlier staff and better inflight entertainment
Except constant choice of pasta and horrible salads, Lufthansa was excellent. Post Covid optimizations a savings don’t work so well. Understand company needs to survive.
Pros: "Great crew who were prompt with service and friendly!!"
Pros: "I was seated in Row 18 (comfort economy?) and my seat was relatively comfortable. The cabin was clean and pleasant. The crew was friendly, efficient, and professional."
Cons: "My family was seated in the economy section and their seats were extremely uncomfortable. I had the pasta dish for dinner and it was mushy to the point of being inedible."
Pros: "I was traveling with a baby alone and crew was very supportive"
Cons: "Instead of saying what could have been better, I want to praise the excellent wheel chair service at Munich airport. She went above and beyond, helped us find an alternatively connection after we missed ours and while reassuring us about the solutions. She was First Class service. Thank you."
Pros: "Food and crew were terrific."
Cons: "Security at Frankfurt is particularly laborious"
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly, and service was fast. The snack was a chicken and carrot sandwich. It was good."

Pros: "Crew were excellent!!!"
Cons: "Se headline"
Cons: "Flight was delayed more than 1 hour 30 minutes"
Pros: "Crew and service was very good,"
Cons: "Reclining seats. Great for you but not the person behind you. It puts the screen about 10 inches from your face when the person in front of you reclines and it's impossible to lean forward and rest your head on the tray."
Cons: "The food was not good at all. The economy seats are uncomfortable and you should be able to walk around the plane, especially on a 9 plus hour flight."
Cons: "Did not board flight due to above Billund to Frankfurt flight being delayed and causing me to miss this flight."
Pros: "Excellent cabin service."
Cons: "At Frankfurt ground staff did not offer elevator down ti board plane to Boston even though I had wheel chair. Going down on escalator was difficult for me."
Cons: "I was never notified that there was no 1:45pm flight. Had I not gotten to the airport early I would not have made the flight to Chicago.at 12:25pm. I was originally scheduled to to to Munich but the flight was to Frankfurt. The plane arrived early so I had to make different plans for someone to pick me up Very disappointed in lack of communication"
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and professional. Entertainment selection was great. Food was exceptional. Flight attendents were attentive and served you throughout the flight."
Cons: "The leg room was cramped in economy like most airlines."
Pros: "Nice plane, airy. Lufthansa crew are always nice."
Cons: "Chaotic check-in. I'd checked in and selected seats in advance. But flight was overbooked and I got a standby ticket with no seat while my 4 family members, including 3 on the same reservation, were seated. I had to stand in line as a standby, and then was assigned a seat that didn't recline at all -- not the best for an overnight flight, and having planned, checked in and gotten a seat, IOW done what I was supposed to, it wasn't a nice way to be treated."
Cons: "Movie selection was lacking, stewardess on one leg of the trip was hard to understand"
Pros: "I'm so glad with all workers in the plane, excellent !!!"

Pros: "Appreciated pillow, blanket and headphones on each seat. Served edible dinner on a 10 pm flight."
Cons: "Movie selection was subpar."
Pros: "On time and straightforward - unlike the previous night when an Air Traffic Control weather delay prevented a connection at Chicago (no fault of Lufthansa). So I stayed over in Arkansas at home as there was no offer of compensation (hotel or $) for the delay."
Cons: "Once off international flight in Dusseldorf, had to go through passport check prior to transfer onto second flight... One passport check person in line for almost 200 people... We did make our flight, however very stressful for no reason. Lufthansa was amazing, Euro-wings folks... very unhelpful..."
Cons: "I didn't got the seats i asked for in the check in."
Cons: "The seats were too close together."
Cons: "The flight didn't have any screen and The kids got bored. And made noise at the plain"
Pros: "Stressed out crew. No pillows."

Cons: "Could have used a few more snacks. But didn't bother to ask for any either."
Pros: "Meals and service"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "The aircraft for one - their new 747-8l. Spacious and quiet. Loved the ambience. The food was absolutely fantastic Indian food. Service professional and courteous. I would plonk money to travel LH business class for sure."
Pros: "Lufthansa seems to have friendlier more helpful customer service than does Webjet's customer service."
Cons: "Webjet customer service didn't seem very friendly or concerned about helping to request fees waived from themselves and Lufthansa."
Pros: "The Lufthansa flight was great. The food and drinks for 1 hr and 45 min was satisfactory. The airplane was clean and crew was friendly. Too bad only 10% of the flight was gone by Lufthansa. The rest was done by United Airlines. The airplane was new and clean, the crew was friendly as well.The food at UA was so cheap it is a shame. On the domestic leg they give you 5 fools fish or crackers and soft drinks for 4 hrs flight. At the same time each and every passenger was asked personally if he or she will buy breakfast making the person feel guilty if not buying breakfast."
Cons: "Lufthansa is good. UA food is cheap and not enough on the Trans Atlantick flight and hard liquor is not free. On the domestic flight they do not give you food even if the flight is early in the morning and 4 hrs long. That is a shame. Moreover they try to sale you a breakfast package that is design not to get spoiled for three months. The nutrition value of that package is zero even I believe it is bad for you. This is only in the USA. It is a shame how our Airlines treate the American passengers."
Pros: "Fast trip"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Friendly, professional staff"
Cons: "Personal space too small"
Cons: "It was too cold on the plane."
Pros: "On time and smooth"
Delays. Endless walking at Schiphol, most exits closed. No staff or signs.

Cons: "Very nice crew and great food"
Pros: "Very friendly and responsive crew. Announcements from the Capitan and chief of flight attendants are very informative and comforting. Seat positions: very good leg room (even in economy)!"
Cons: "Newer airplane, as 747s are kind of outdated now, especially for long distance flights. But overall had good experience with KLM"
Pros: "KLM are our airline of choice. A great full-service carrier with impecable standards."
Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."
Cons: "Follow your own policies. Allow people to board (economy plus) with their hand luggage who have followed all the rules and chosen a seat in the front of the plane. My daughter and my KLM approved baggage were taken by the boarding crew while allowing other passengers to go with more than allowed"
Pros: "KLM STAFF WERE VERY PROFESSIONAL"
Cons: "SOME CREW MEMBERS WERE ABIT RUDE. THEY NEED TO WORK ON THEIR ATTITUDE"
Pros: "Fantastic gate agents!"
Cons: "The food was terrible."
Cons: "Flight got delayed 30 minutes"
Pros: "Friendly crew, upgraded seat was worthwhile"
Cons: "More snacks in between meals,"
Cons: "Head support for 6 feet plus people on seats would be good"
Pros: "General flight journey"
Pros: "the drinks"
Cons: "seat reservation. having to pay for luggage...."
Pros: "It was all fine"
Cons: "Really was unsure of why I had to purchase a ticket as I was able to pick my own on the way to Billund"
Pros: "The crew were really helpful with people who had tight connections because of the delayed flight"
Cons: "I wish they had WiFi"
Cons: "Long haul flight made pleasant by KLM"
Cons: "Inflight was better than I expected. But needs upgrading air crafts."
Pros: "The flight arrived a few minutes early."
Cons: "The plane was extremely old and in poor repair. The seats were extremely close together. The inflight entertainment system, wifi and passenger electric outlets were all non-functional. Even the wastebin in the lavatory was full and an extra bag was put on the floor."
Pros: "The crew were amazing and the flight was very smooth."
Cons: "Keep up the good work"
Pros: "Crew was in a festive mood, the meal was unexpectedly delicious"
Cons: "Seats ok, but could be more comfy"
Cons: "None of our 4 checked bags arrived with us. This was despite ample connection time (2+ hours) in Amsterdam."
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: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight. KLM #605 from Amsterdam to SFO---please pass the praise to all of them."
Pros: "The attention and service!! Excellent. It was my birthday and KLM the head purser surprised me with 2 bottles of bubbles and a handwritten birthday card KlM and the crew of this flight thank you very much !"
Cons: "Nothing to say"
Cons: "Food had only vegetarian choices. No charging place and ambiance was noisy"
Cons: "You are almost always late!"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."
Cons: "Our total flight time was about 17 hours - MAD- AMS-LAX. My husband and I both have an internationally approved carry on luggages with us. When we checked in - they asked us to both check in our carry on luggage. The reason why is because they said they don’t think they have enough space for our carry ons. I told the crew member checking us in that other people that was checking in with the same hand carry size luggage with us had no problems taking it with them. For being about to be on a 17 HOUR FLIGHT we should be ALLOWED to have our carry ons with us! We take carry ons for that reason! I had to argue and prove my case to the crew member to atleast keep 1 carry on with us. I thought that was an UNACCEPTABLE reason for us to check in a carry on luggage when we had a 17 hour travel time ahead of us. Not a happy costumer here."
Pros: "We got a meal for a 1h flight only"
Cons: "No entertainment but normal for this type of flight"
Pros: "Arrived Early!"
Cons: "Left Late :-)"
Pros: "I got some rest"
Cons: "unable to charge my phone or watch movies"
Cons: "Super delayed. Could have fixed the issue BEFORE we were sitting on tha plane for TWO hours"
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 food service was good and the flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "The plane was very uncomfortable. The seats were small, you felt on top of the person next to you, and there was no leg room. I am a pretty small person- I can't image how uncomfortable all of the taller passengers must have been."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Warm plane with happy staff."
Cons: "Maybe a second sandwich option for food, not everyone likes cheese."
Cons: "Tiny old cramped plane."
Pros: "The flight attendants could not do enough for you."
Cons: "Business class was pretty empty but again I was not allowed to change my seat selection online. Pathetic check-in."
Pros: "Service provided by the staff"
Cons: "The navigation of the entertainment system is not very friendly"
Pros: "had problems checking in , in that I was charged for a suitcase! I have since checked my paper work and found thad that I had paid for a case! I will follow this up when I return to the UK"
Pros: "Usual professional and friendly service from my airline of choice for most destinations."
Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant and attentive. Seats were comfortable for economy as well. We were allowed to check in extra baggage for free at check in which really helped since we would be catching a connecting flight in Amsterdam"
Cons: "suitcase didn't turn up, although connection was quite tight"
Cons: "OLD OLD plane with hard seats and tiny screens"
Pros: "Priority boarding was appreciated and the flights were on time. Service was fine. Schipol was good."
Pros: "The crew were just amazing, such lovely male stewards! They were helpful and friendly and generally wonderful."
Cons: "The entertainment was quite dated and didn't have new movies etc"
Pros: "staff hospitality, cleanness of the cabin and toilet and punctuality of the flight"
Cons: "lack of meal options"
Pros: "I fly delta this was run by KLM they weight all bags delta does not they don't take TSA preach Check. Delta does It was a free for all with check in and getting into plane"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "How friendly the crew is Ease of boarding Good organization Mostly on time"
Cons: "At least free beverages:)"
Pros: "The selection of movies was great. Boarding happened super fast and plane departed early."
Cons: "Plane was incredibly cold! Touch screen didn’t work well. Breakfast was lame. Flight attendants were super loud during breakfast service even though the lights were still dimmed."
Cons: "Poor customer service"
Cons: "Customer interaction is a joke"
Pros: "Super friendly, comfortable for the long flight, plenty to keep you occupied. Its my 3rd time flying with them and the flight is always smooth. And it doesn't hurt that there is a huge shamrock on the tail wing to make superstitious people like me, feel a little bit better! I will only use them!"
Pros: "On a 7 hour flight you want comfort. It was so smooth and easy. Watched movies, read, just relaxed. I've flown with Aer lingus before and it was just as amazing. I will ALWAYS use Are Lingus when I fly to the UK or Ireland and Shannon is a Gem of an airport. Most amazing airport I have ever been to!"
Cons: "All food and beverages had to be bought"
Pros: "Crew helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Announcement could be clearer. Sometimes gabled and indistinct."
Cons: "Flight was about an hour late taking off"
Pros: "Pleasant cabin crew"
Cons: "Disembark down steps at back of plane onto tarmac then carry bags up two flights of steps, tiring and dangerous of falling"
Cons: "Having to leave the terminal and going through security again was insanely stressful and I barely made my flight."
Pros: "Suggest lanes with seat number groups in order to avoid people crowding the entry to boarding the plane. Dinner selection: Msin dish choice ran out and was left with only one entree to choose from Increase chicken bard entrees"
Cons: "Had to fight through a crowd to make my way to the gate."
Pros: "I thought the airline was nice and it was a seamless process getting on the flight."
Cons: "I am not sure if it is the airlines have different cultures but the flight attendants weren't overly warm..I would describe them as lukewarm We had just got off another flight were the attendants were warm in how they greeted us."
Cons: "While we arrived on time there was no air bridge ready.We had to wait for 15min to connect the air bridge. This was very frustrating and seems to be a common problem as it was also the same scenario on the out bound flight to London which then caused me to miss my transatlantic flight as Aerlingus delayed the flight leaving Dublin plus air bridge problem"
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Made me check my carryon bag then it was opened - why - don’t know - and items missing along with my luggage strap. Will NEVER use Aer Lingus again"
Cons: "90 minutes is tight to transfer from one terminal to another, very little time to waste."
Pros: "Waiting ages at another carousel from NY flight meant that I missed the booked flight and had to pay another $60.00. This was efficiently done...but notice about bags being taken off roundabout would help.I thought it was a tour groups's and did not search for my missing bag ...Young woman in the Air linguis Dublin baggage office sweet and patient ...give her a raise."
Cons: "The enormous distance between getting off one plane and trying to get on to another ...some signage confusing re Internal direction to Terminal 2"
Cons: "There was no vegetarian option. Most airlines now have at least one vegetarian option. You had to ask at time of booking.Booked flight last min as Mom not well,l no time to think @ food."
Pros: "You lost myluhgage. I have no clean clothes to ware"
Pros: "They were helpful on the ground, though some of the crew were cold on the plane, not unhelpful, but not helpful"
Pros: "Tail winds shortened the flying time by 45 minutes"
Cons: "seats... no space menu.... skip it movie choice ... fair at best"
Cons: "I had a changeable ticket but could only do so a 1counter. Missed earlier flight as a result. Terrible service. At Dublin airport going out they let me change at the gate. Bot not in Heathrow."
Pros: "I like the comfort and reliability of this airline in my experience."
Pros: "Cold air was on for the entire flight, despite it being 4 degrees outside"
Cons: "Broken seats, headphone socket not working, smell of aviation fuel in cabin and then our luggage did not arrive at our final destination."
Cons: "the food was really expensive"
Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "Your company pulled a bait and switch. You stuck me with the most unprofessional and uncooperative packager in the industry. I wasn’t apprised by Kayak that you were pawning me off on a sleazy packager."
Cons: "Crew is borderline aggressive and arrogant."
Pros: "Lovely crew"
Cons: "Aer Lingus are always late departing, but it was a blessing this time as I'd have missed the connection otherwise!"
Cons: "First time I flew with Aer Lingus and can't say I will do it again. Didn't realize I was flying across continents in such a small plane. The flight attendants were barely civil; the bin above me housed supplies and on more than one occasion an attendant with visibly wet armpits leaned over me without nary an excuse me."
Cons: "Early boarding.. wondering could this catch me out on another occasion?"
Pros: "Flight was short and without any problems."
Pros: "Ahead of time"
Cons: "Last persons rubbish left in Seat pockets"
Pros: "On time. Reached early"
Cons: "No compliments of drinks"
Cons: "this wasn't a BA flight.. it was air lingus and it was a disaster. shouldn't have been charged BA rates for this"
Cons: "My issue has more to do with after the flight, than the actual flight. My luggage was lost somehow between Heathrow and Shannon. The lack of communication I received from Aer Lingus, and the length of time it took for me to get the luggage was a bit ridiculous. I was never told what happened to the luggage and I was given the timeline to receive my luggage within 24 hours. Well it took over 48 hours to get the luggage. I was given specific timeframes to call the Shannon Airport Aer Lingus luggage desk, which I followed. Had to leave a message every time, and not once was it returned. The only communication I did get was calling the Shannon Airport directly and working with their employees. I could tell they were frustrated with me, which is completely understandable, because they weren't the appropriate people to communicate with. I was just very disappointed in the customer service."
Pros: "The flight from LHR to DUB was pleasant, short, and uneventful. I blissfully caught up on sleep during most of it!"
Cons: "After we landed in DUB, some other aircraft's being in the wrong place seemed to cause us quite a long delay, which meant that I very nearly missed my connecting flight to IAD. My suitcase, perhaps because of this same taxiing delay, missed the flight and had to be sent on the same flight the next day - though it reached me without incident about 24 hours after I reached my home."
Pros: "Punctuality and cost"
Pros: "On time, no fuss, got us there"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Delay at Dublin waiting for plane to get parked"
Pros: "Ahead of time"
Cons: "I hate the fact that I was not informed that I needed a transit visa to board the flight from Dublin. The service was poor from the beginning to the end . My ticket reads BA but yet it America and Aer Lingus. Kayak should have made clear from the beginning. I was detained in Ireland. Almost missed my flight"
Pros: "Flight attendant was delightful."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient, the flight arrived 10 minutes early."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment offered, aside from what you could purchase. But as it was a very short flight, this didn't make much of a difference for me. Overall, good short flight."
Pros: "The price and convenience was great, airline was well kept with minor technology issues. Restroom facilities were well kept and food was adequate (what airline food is really good?) turbulent flight but the pilot did a goood job maneuvering around."
Cons: "The headsets provided for international movies sound quality was very poor.my daughter and I found ourselves using a single prong (airline headsets require two one for each ear)headphones from our phone to listen to movies with only one in. One flight attendant was not pleasant and wound up spilling a full cup of water on my lap, followed by another hitting me with the food cart. I am a frequent traveler so for me this shouldn't sway anyone's opinion on a minor instance."
Cons: "Broken kiosks at airport meant that everyone had to check in at the counter - only problem was there were no Aer Lingus staff anywhere to be found. We, and dozens of other passengers waited 40 min+ before anyone showed up. Then when staff arrived they were oblivious to the huge line that had formed - they carried on their small talk amongst theirselves oblivious to the passengers who had been waiting for a long time to get their boarding pass."
Cons: "My original flight was cancelled & this meant I missed my connecting flight to Donegal at 1 pm -- had to wait for the 7 pm flight to Donegal -- I was not happy as I was to attend my Mother's 80 th birthday"
Cons: "For return flight they changed us to a Virgin flight, but we didn't find out until we reached the airport. Email or text would've been appropriate."
Pros: "Everything went surprisingly smooth. Coffee was good, but had to pay for it"
Cons: "Didn't try the food"
Very noisy, engine sound inside the cabin.
I prefer not being delayed 45 minutes on a red eye flight.
Pros: "Seating was comfortable though a tad bit cramped."
Cons: "Window was dirty from someone touching it on a previous flight. Cannot wear headphones during takeoff or landing was an inconvenience. Cabin crew made sure all passengers were held tightly to their rules but then got themselves a coffee and chatted up front the majority of the time. (Only an hour trip, so no beverages or snacks for us)"
Cons: "Significant delays"
Pros: "Quick and Friendly Staff"
Cons: "Flight was wonderful, landing a little rough"
Cons: "I missed my international connection because flight was three hours late."
Cons: "Unbelievable waste of time and gross inefficient experience trying to get assistance service for a wheelchair abominable delays wrong numbers and general disconnection between ground services & personnel. No problem in New York with Delta no problem in Barcelona but London was a sad performance."
Pros: "Things were pretty smooth."
Cons: "Could have done without the flight delay."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled."
Pros: "loved the interactive flight information, movies, and the food and crew were great"
Cons: "Getting through customs in UK and getting luggage tags to Dublin was a nightmare. Took over 2 hours, went through 4 lines to get luggage tags and given misinformation. Poorest travel experience in 40 years of traveling. Brits need to learn how to expedite processing."
Pros: "Not enough information"
Cons: "The flight times went explained properly very missleading"
Cons: "Finding out that I had to pay more for my bag."
Pros: "Kind and caring staff"
Pros: "I made it"
Cons: "If I were a bit older or slower I wouldn’t have made plane. It is unfortunate I had two leg journey to Ireland. BWI - Heathrow- Dublin is a difficult journey with 1 hour layover. I nearly had to push old ladies out of the way to make connection. Very stressful and left headphones in haste to make flight. Not an enjoyable experience."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 30 mins"
Pros: "Short flight so no food"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Food and entertainment are not applicable for this flight as it is too short to need this anyway"
Cons: "Late, no food or drink, confusion at checkin"
Pros: "Very busy flight but staff very professional"
Pros: "A bit late getting started but very nice after that."
Cons: "Must you charge for tea?"
Cons: "That I missed the flight because of Iberia airlines"
Pros: "Boarding clerk was excellent. He was very helpful"
Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit confusing and staff wasn't actively being helpful with information. Got absolutely nothing to drink/eat on the plane-not even a glass of water! The flight crew was just ok, no one "stood out" as good or excellent. Again, nothing about this flight made me want to definitely fly British Airways again."
Pros: "The Aer Lingus staff are brilliant!"
Cons: "Nothing to report"
Cons: "It would be nice if someone cared about something. It didn't seem like anyone liked their job or cared about the passengers. All seemed like corporate greed. I have flown over 40,000 miles this year. This was the most unsatisfactory flight. Come on guys, create a good environment for a win win situation. Happy passengers make more money for the corporation in the end."
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."
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: "I liked the professionalism of the cede and the cleanliness of the cabin"
Cons: "I was a little frustrated with the delayed start"
Pros: "They got us there."
Cons: "We flew in from San Francisco to London on full-price Business Class tickets. Stupidly, I bought Coach tickets separately for the short leg to Dublin. British Air would not check two bags all the way to Dublin. For one of the bags, we did the measurements, and joined all the other people who haul extra luggage onto the plane for carry-on. For the other bag, sixty-five Pounds Sterling (about eighty-five bucks) for the other bag for a one hour flight. Wow! That put a big damper on the whole flight experience."
Pros: "I really liked how neat & professional the crew were dressed. The plane was new & the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "I didn't like that beverages (like water, juice, coffee) weren't complimentary. All the flights I've been on in the U.S. offer those for free, along with a small snack."
Pros: "No complaints about the flight. It was so short that we didn't even have time to get a drink or snack. Quite a bit of turbulence but I think that might be typical."
Cons: "Gate not given until last minute. The most cramped plane I have ever been on and I’m petite. No complimentary anything."
Cons: "Horrible plane. Sounded like it was on its last legs."
Pros: "Short flight, slept all the way!"
Cons: "Did not eat and no entertainment on this short flight so food and entertainment not applicable."
Pros: "It was quick"
Cons: "Food options were bad"
Pros: "My flight was changed at airport"
Cons: "Barely made flight-- no help offered"
Pros: "The staff onboard the flight was friendly."
Cons: "There was a last minute gate change that was not announced until boarding was closing, so I had to race across to the other side of the airport to catch the plane. There was no food/drinks provided on the flight."
Cons: "Worse experience ever!!!!"
Pros: "They tried to help me in person by making a phone call to the security gate."
Cons: "Despite the call to security (I guess it was to the security gate? Not sure) it seemed standard the way they spoke, not as if anyone seemed empathetic to my situation as I am a graduate student and was in dire need of returning to Dublin, Ireland for work the following morning. I have had a different experience with different British Airways representatives. The customer service on the phone seemed good, but in person, it just felt like robots following policy unfortunately. I spent $150 for a roundtrip flight and could not use my "Return" portion of my ticket. I arrived to the security gate and I could not be let in. My flight was even delayed which should have allowed me time to scan through security but it did not. My phone is temporarily unavailable as it is in the shop for repair, while I navigate a foreign country without the use of maps or access to email so easily. I checked my email at a random hotel in London for 1.5 hours, and 30 mins after I left, apparently an email was sent by BA to me, alerting me that I could check-in my luggage, instead of having to take it on-board as carry-on. All these details would have been nice to know a little more ahead of time. I wish I could be refunded for my flight, as that was the last flight of the evening, and I ended up having to go to Air Lingus to pay nearly 300 pounds to get on their last flight back to Dublin. As a graduate student, working on my thesis and fulfilling a job here in Ireland as the final leg of my Master's degree, any money saved is a help. Forfeiting half my ticket, and purchasing a new one twice the price of my original was not something I was expecting. I was an emotional wreck getting on-board my other airline's flight. Just not a positive experience that resonated with me overall :( I wish I had more positive insight to share, especially on social media or Yelp about my experience to London and back with BA. Plane was small, and complimentary drinks were not served as every flight I have ever been on in 30 years, and that is several several dozen, have ALWAYS given at least a drink, even if they didn't have peanuts/pretzels. Pretty disappointing.."
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, plane didn't take off for a long time after boarding."
Cons: "The service was terrible and staff was unpleasant"
Pros: "The food was elevated and we were fed twice on our 9 hour flight! The beverage service was also provided often with a good assortment. I loved that there were new release movies available for free. The staff was friendly and available. If I were to do another long flight like that, I would seek out British Airways."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"
Cons: "There was no entertainment for that flight."
Pros: "I was exhausted and so was my flight buddy. The staff was helpful and quietc and got us on board and to our destination without us having to think which was great."
Cons: "Because I didn't make it and I want my money back"
Pros: "Standard BA dependability. Like a dependable but stodgy old uncle."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding process. No enforcement of boarding groups"
Cons: "It was not British Airways but Aer Lingus !!"
