Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "the cabin crew were efficient and very pleasant."
Cons: "Seats not particularly comfortable, video system glitchy, film selection ok, not great. Food was airline food, not much you can say there. The connection gate staff were rude and forced me to check my hand luggage (even though I am disabed and first to board), which had all my medicines in and my computer. The flight wast full and didnt see any other bags gate checked, and there was a bunch of room in the overheads, they werent full. Then to add salt to the wound when we arrived our luggage was dripping water (and it wasnt running at our destination it was at the connection) several clothes were ruined or needed cleaning. As I was on the way to my fathers funeral this was an added pressure that I didnt need."
Pros: "Great food and drink service."
Cons: "Entertainment system is outdated relative to other airlines. A bit disappointing."
Pros: "I liked the fact that I got to Los Angeles safely"
Cons: "The bathrooms were tiny, seemed to be in a bad shape and one of them was straight disgusting. The cabin was crowded and there was not much room to stretch. There seemed to be something wrong with the main dish (special order) and I started to feel ill soon after eating from it. It took a few days to get better. The headset didn't work for most of the trip, even after several attempts by the flight attendant to re-set it."
Pros: "Kind flight attendants who were attentive and friendly"
Cons: "Seats are hard and very small. No chargers and having the remote control cut into the armrest was uncomfortable and awkward. I kept accidentally hitting the stewardess button with my elbow when I would try to use said armrest."
Pros: "The crew was exceptional: friendly and professional."
Cons: "The seat was really small and I am 5.1ft. The screen was bigger than other flight companies but when the passenger in front of me put down the seat I wasn't able to watch the video comfortably. The entertainment sistem was a little bit old."
Pros: "LOVE SWISS AIR!!!!!!!"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 5 hours. No one offered us anything. On top of that they lied about why the plane was delayed. Told us two different stories. We sat in the airport with no Swiss staff anywhere in site. Every check in desk was empty. Once boarded, My tv on my chair was broken. I asked 7 different times to have it reset. Never happened and no one ever came to check on me. The food was awful. We would like someone at Swiss to contact us with some type of refund for our troubles. Our names are danny roman and Bryan Feld."
Pros: "Service on plane was excellent."
Cons: "Boarding is disorganized. Ok board is the general rule. The waiting area behind passport check was Spartan and lacked any real amenities. No food, services or area to charge devices."
Pros: "Can't say anything in particular."
Cons: "Upon check-in at the airport, found Swiss Air switched our seats that were confirmed. They gave us excuses that were different each time we spoke with someone, and they didn't care to put the effort out to do anything about it. There customer service was less than satisfactory."
Pros: "Everything was excellent on this flight."
Cons: "Maybe the food menu? But it wasn't bad."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and positive. The seats surprisingly reclined quite a bit. The dinner was actually good."
Cons: "The offer of wine. The wifi options."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and responsive."
Cons: "The flight was so hot. No personal air controls. Economy was horribly small."
Pros: "Food was great and abundant. Frequent service"
Cons: "Seats are too tight for such a long flight"
Pros: "Crew was great! Food was actually very good! However seats are very tight in the economy class...I’m 5’6” and 130lb and had a hard time during the 10,5h transatlantic flight.."
Cons: "No complaints about anything but the seats on this particular aircraft: Boeing 777-300ER... very tight!!! Ok for a few hours of flying but not for an 11 hour flight!!!"
Pros: "Lost the luggage"
Cons: "After showing passport to get boarding pass, had to line up to show passport again to get boarding pass stamped at gate-no instructions, just a line.. Why!? Poor communication."
Pros: "This was a 12 hour flight that didn’t feel like 12 hours. They movies and other entertainment was very good with new and older movies that didn’t disappoint. The food was great all the way through to the farewell piece of chocolate."
Cons: "The seats on this flight were very tight. I am 5’8 and felt super cramped. The seats themselves were not that bad just small and not a lot of space. If you fly with them don’t expect to kee anything under the seat with you. Also the whole boarding process is a big cluster! There is no real organization to the line or who they are boarding. Make sure you get in the line quickly or you could be waiting awhile."
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 food was amazing, the in-flight entertainment was amazing, and the flight attendants were amazingly kind and beautiful. :) Swiss Air has set the standard on airline food, serving Swiss Chocolate and Gruyere cheese on the flight! It was the best!"
Cons: "My only concern was that there were times when I felt a little too warm. The newer Boeing 777 doesn't have passenger controlled A/C."
Pros: "The crew were helpful and polite"
Cons: "The boarding process was too long and chaotic in Zurich The seats are uncomfortably close together and there is not enough room to move at all. I would say for bigger size people, they mau even be unsafe. I have had high regards for Swiss airline until my recent trip. I will definitely look for other options for my future trips."
Pros: "SwilssAir is our new favorite airline to Switzerland and other points in Europe. The crews were pleasant and efficient. All flights were right on time. The food was very good, and the best overall we have experienced in economy. The individual video screens provided a nice selection of movies, tv, games, etc. Finally, transferring in Zurich is MUCH better than the zoo that his Heathrow!"
Pros: "Attendants were very courteous"
Cons: "Very little leg room Seats were quite uncomfortable"
Pros: "I had a wonderful experience the whole way through."
Cons: "The TV froze and stopped working for me. Thankfully it was the last thirty minutes of my flight. Mine was the only that appeared to be broken."
Pros: "The flight attendants qere very nice and friendly. Spoke great English. They came by often with drinks and snacks. All the food was actually good! The seats were fairly comfy and there was actually room! Even when the person in front of me leaned back, my legs still didn't touch the back of the seat (I'm 5-10 with long legs). Very happy with swiss!"
Pros: "Good space above seats"
Cons: "Seats way too tight. But the worst thing was the two passageners in the row we shared. They were laying on each other and it was inappropriate for the entire flight. He was rubbing her breast and I said something. He seemed to stop. Lots of rubbing and huggin and the man had his legs stretched out man spread style"
Pros: "I thought Swiss did a nice job. The people were kind and the service was excellent. The meals were great. I never wanted for anything. The entertainment was also very nice."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and attentive. I was impressed at the amount of food we received through out the flight. My family and I enjoyed our flight with Swiss airlines and will definitely use them next time we travel."
Pros: "The staff was excellent and friendly"
Cons: "I didn't enjoy the food"
Pros: "I love the fact that there are no communication barrier...everyone that I spoke to knows English!"
Pros: "From my previous flight, the crew informed the flight attendants to LA about my condition. This crew checked in with me every few hours to make sure I was comfortable and had enough tissues and tea to make it through the 12 hours."
Pros: "The crew on board was kind and polite when they had to deliver bad news"
Cons: "2 hour delay due to a morning delay at Barcelona, although that seemed odd. The delay was known early that morning. Flight from Barcelona to Zurich doesn't take long. Seems they could have rerouted, or at least sent an email or some notification. Also, the boarding staff at Zurich is rude and random about whom they let onboard with larger luggage or not. They held some people but not others. Middle seats have metal polls, making legroom awkward."
Pros: "A swiss machine..."
Cons: "the smell someone left in the bathroom before me."
Cons: "I would have like an announcement to let me know what times food will be served. I woke up just as the crew had passed my row for breakfast and then couldn't get the attention of the lady to serve me breakfast. A vegan option for the menu would be excellent. The leg room on the plane was also very reduced for an 11 hour flight. I wish I would have been offered to pay an additional amount and upgrade to the business class. This option was never offered to me at check-in."
Pros: "Actually being able to breathe on this trip, as opposed to the first trip on your horrible planes."
Cons: "Being FORCED to spend extra money simply to be able to reserve the last row of two seats, in the faint hope of being able to achieve some level of comfort which was unattainable on the first flight. Having only two seats in our row and the one in front of us made the flight tolerable, but also enhanced the ludicrous ineptitude of the previous flight, wherein we were treated like so much livestock in a train car, heading for slaughter. I will never, NEVER, fly Swiss Air again."
Cons: "Was asked to give up my aisle seat (D 40) seat om a 13 hour flight for a less comfortable one (F). Put on the spot to give up my seat for a couple with a 6 month old infant due to the fact that the attachable bassinet had to be in front of the D seat. Neither the parent or myself felt very good about my displacement."
Pros: "Like to have the gluten free option for food. I know i chose it when i got the ticket but i did not get it."
Cons: "A gap between flights for 20 hours"
Pros: "Flight attendants not friendly, constantly bumped me and never excused themselves. Food not so good and temperature too hot this flight. I was constantly putting on and taking off my jacket. Movie selection seems to be going downhill also. All that being said, I'm grateful for every safe landing."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants. Clean planes."
Cons: "Seat pitch too small-no room. Food was not good. Outdated entertainment movies"
Pros: "Same as above, we were really pleased with the service and the food, and the crew was great!"
Cons: "Seats a little close together but not terrible."
Pros: "Friendly crew members who kept serving food and drinks before asking. Meals, snack, drinks, hot towel, and cookies! The plane was also very clean and apacious enough."
Pros: "My wife got travel sickness and the crew was very very nice to help her out by offering her a place to lie down and other offerings"
Pros: "Plane was nice, lots of movies to watch, free wine"
Cons: "Seats to close together, crew a little snooty"
Cons: "The crew at the check-in was rude, confused, and ignorant, and flight attendants were forgetful and ignorant."
Pros: "Decent food (great chocolate), polite attendants and updated aircraft"
Cons: "Contrary to most experiences in Switzerland, the Swiss Air boarding process is a damn mess! Most airlines board by rows or boarding groups, but Swiss Air does none of that. As soon as first class is boarded, they open boarding to all seats, so it's like cattle boarding a train. With Swiss Air, don't wait to get in line - do it early to ensure you get carry-on storage near your seat."
Pros: "Wonderful staff and service. Multiple snack and meal service very much appreciated. I love Swiss Air."
Cons: "I found the movie selection a bit limited for such a long flight."
Pros: "Can't think of anything we didn't like. All the attendants were very nice, always smiling and helpful. It was great, will fly with Swiss again for sure."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Cons: "There was a 4.5 hr delay due to "technical difficulties". We had to switch planes. This caused me to miss my flight to Tucson out of LAX. When I asked them to help rebook my flight that Lufthansa caused ne to miss, i was told there is nothing they can do. Seeing as how that last flight was not booked through Lufthansa. This is absolutely ridiculous! There were no Lufthansa flights into Tucson so I had no choice but to go with another carrier! So after a long grueling 4.5 hr delay and 11+hr flight now I have to stay in a hotel because my flight out via Southwest was the last one out for the day and The only nonstop flight departs at 12:35 tomorrow. Thank goodness Southwest booked me on another flight at no charge! They take care of their customers. It was not their fault I missed the flight. It was dur to the "techincal difficulties" with Lufthansa. And every hotel within a 8 mile radius has been sold out. And at one point I booked online only to find out upon my arrival, after paying for taxi and havig him leave, thAt this hotel is sold out and should not have allowed me to book online. So after landing at 7:15 pm at LAX I am just now in bed at a hotel after searching and paying for cabs etc. And on my dime! Absolutely ridiculous !!"
Cons: "I was nauseous during the plane ride walked to back of plane and was told I wasn't allowed to be back there. When that is where the bathrooms were. I asked for an extra pillow when there were 10 free seats the crew never honored my request. Not once did they ask if I was ok. The food was inedible. And I was completely uncomfortable the entire flight."
Pros: "That my bag was at Johannesburg. My first flight was delayed due to a technical issue which meant I only had less than an hour until my connecting flight. It took me almost 20 minutes to walk to the gate just in time for boarding and was pleased that my bag had made it onto the same flight. There was loads of leg room in economy which as a tall person is really important."
Pros: "The flight was actually an Air Canada flight - a code share with Lufthansa. I had a good flight. The cabin crew were fantastic - very accommodating because I wasn't able to pre-select my vegetarian option online earlier due to the code share. They were very polite and professional. The seats were relatively comfortable and the movies onboard were aired and good. I would fly Air Canada again."
Cons: "I disliked the confusion with the code share. I have never flown a code share before an I was under the impression I was flying Lufthansa - not Air Canada. I really disliked not being able to check in online 24 hours before on either Lufthansa's site or Air Canada. That is ridiculous in this day and age - surely the two airlines can coordinate something were the traveller can check in online on one of the sites. Also, as a vegetarian, I wasn't able to select my meal - I had to hope that they had enough vegetarian meals to give me one. This is another problem thanks to the code share. If this is what code sharing is like, I won't be doing it again. No thanks. I'll book directly."
Pros: "Food was actually daily good"
Cons: "Flight was rerouted to drop off sick passengers. 10 hours after being served lunch and after the sick passengers had disembarked, there was little update on the flight status and no update on passengers getting dinner. The crew did not hand out water or snacks in the duration but instead ate and drank themselves in the crew area. If you wanted to eat or drink you had to interrupt them, and specifically ask to have a glass of water. If as a flight attendant you are hungry or thirsty after not having anything for so long, it's a good assumption the other 250+ passengers are also. Very inconsiderate."
Pros: "Good flight, lovely service and on time!"
Pros: "We arrived safely. The larger bathroom for wheel chairs"
Cons: "The food was much better than past flights. The crew worked hard to meet the needs of others. More room would be great improvement. Letting friends and family travel and sit with each other on the flights."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Delayed. Fairly basic and the food (a sandwich) was poor quality."
Cons: "DID NOT GO TO MUNICH. Instead of one connecting flight I had to be rearranged for two since the orginal was cancelled. From Florence I was bussed to Balogna, then flew to FRA with delays, then from FRA to EWR WITH A 4+ HR DELAY due to system malfunctions, then EWR to LAX was a 6 HOUR DELAY BECAUSE OF THE PLANE!! Instead of a normal flight time, IT TOOK 24+ HOURS to reach my destination and EACH STOP HAD HOURS OF DELAY. The crew was late on my flight to LAX in addition, absolutely terrible. Never want to fly with Lufthansa or United ever again. Horrible, horrible experience."
Pros: "I liked it all."
Cons: "No Gluten Free snack!"
Pros: "nothing really. There were so many rude staff members at this airline. I saw people get yelled at by staff members. They were just trying to get information on the late flights and missed connections. It happened repeatedly. this company has the worst customer service I have seen probably ever."
Cons: "They need to care about their customers and care for their customers better. They have a lot to be ashamed of."
Cons: "The crew was extremely rude. One in particular was very racist in the way we were treated and the way she would talk to white travellers. My 3 year old child was not provided meal after 2 reminders and I had to argue and fight for it. I was forcefully given Asian vegetarian meal when I had made no special meal requests."
Pros: "The crew was awesome u almost missed the flight but they really helped out."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable and cramped"
Pros: "Free drinks. Two hot meals during flight. Lots of entertainment choices. Extra storage bin under window which doubled as large armrest. Ample legroom. Live sports on TV"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "The infotainment system could have been better. My system was not working for the first 3 hours and the sound went out after 2 hours of use. Also my blanket was not clean."
Pros: "The crew is amazing, special food needs is covered and delicious, great service after all."
Pros: "Friendly crew, great in flight beverage and snack service, bassinets for babies, comfortable flight"
Cons: "Play area for babies in economy class"
Cons: "Just deaiappointed"
Cons: "(1) The captain collected headsets 30 minutes before landing, causing us to miss the last 15 minutes of a movie. Why? (2) Very long cues for toilet use. (3) The baggage took more than half hour to arrive. (4) The chair in front of me reclined very far (more than those on its sides), making it very hard to eat, get up, or read. Need better maintenance."
Pros: "The people who work for Lufthansa are the nicest i’ve met, on par with Turkish airlines. The times for boarding and departure were respected, the flight crew was extra nice, even accommodating requests that gave them extra-work. Economy passengers were treated like first class in terms of service and solicitude of the crew. Headphones, blankets, pillows were offered free of charge, so we’re the food and drinks, and there was a good selection of movies and music. On a 770$ ticket, mind you! The crew will come by repeatedly to check if passengers desired some more wine or coffee, offered water and juices on a tray several times outside the regular service times, and cared for the families with children. Thumbs up!"
Cons: "The warm food was a bit unappetizing, the potatoes for instance were black, but there is nothing that the crew could do better than offer to replace it. Such graceful approach to a little inconvenience!"
Cons: "Waited in Luftansa line 9.5 hours to rebook flight after Munich airport shut down for 7 hours. Lufthansa totally unprepared for this situation. Understaffed and unhelpful with directions. Finally got to Los Angeles after 48 hours. Still haven’t gotten luggage 2 days later and no communication on when to expect it."
Pros: "I thought the new plane was wonderful. The flight attendant was great and professional."
Cons: "I flew with Lufthansa about two years ago and the food was soooo much better. The food on this trip was very distasteful."
Pros: "Safe trip. Announcer had a radio voice."
Cons: "Food was horrible. Service was scarce. Bathrooms were not the cleanest. Snacks were scarce and not appropriate. The tv screens were not too user friendly and programs would skip while showings."
Pros: "The aircraft was great. A bit wobbly on take off and landing, but overall spacious and comfortable seating. The seats had many position options which was amazing. Meal service tableware was clean and pleasant to use. Food was also great. Also a very wide selection of entertainment options! Also, good flying from the pilot’s crew. Flight was on time."
Cons: "The servicing crew in the business cabin was inexperienced and unrefined. The flight attendants seemed to just want to “get it over with” with questions like “are you done?” The attendants wanted to take our drink order as soon as we got in without giving us a chance to settle into our seats and kept hovering over us until I had to ask her to give us a couple of minutes. The airline did not stock enough snack and ran out mid flight. We had to wait for the next meal service which was not fun. I ended up getting a sweet drink just to get by. Internet, which was paid, was so slow that I got tired of watching it trying to load the pages and gave up. Eventually, the connection completely stalled even though I still had over an hour remaining of the 4 hour package. I used maybe an hour of the total purchase. Total waste because I couldn’t get any work done. Overall, I did not think this was an experience worth a business class ticket."
Pros: "It is so nice to flight on board a plane were the staff knows what to do."
Pros: "Very attentive crew; nice leg room on upper deck; extra storage bin under window a nice touch; luggage arrived very promptly on carousel"
Cons: "sick, screaming babies in small upper deck space. I realize the airline cant help this but it would be a good idea to seat them all in one area of the aircraft so staff can give them the attention they need."
Cons: "First, Lufthansa lost our baggage from Hamburg to Los Angeles. Then, the delivery company (Direct Courier Services) Lufthansa uses was completely inept and unprofessional - every single one of their employees is a complete moron. We didn't end up getting our baggage for two and half days so we were wearing the same clothes that we left Germany with. Then, after being told by Lufthansa customer service to submit receipts for clothes we had to buy, never got reimbursed or even the courtesy of a reply. After flying Lufthansa for over a decade, will never use this airline again. Epic fail."
Cons: "The flight attendant did not bring the wheel chair and take me to the bus where I waited too long and when I arrived to customs no wheel chair was there and I asked every officer there how to get the wheel chair no one helped after long time one officer called and the chair arrived and he transferred me to a cart the driver was very bad he did not help in seating me and I sit on the back with my carry on when he drives like crazy I fell on the floor screeming he stopped and place me in the front and he asked if I need a doctor I told him no I just need to catch my flight although I was hurt badly with a very big bruise and when I reach the gate the plane was gone and I have to wait for another flight to take me to San Francisco and from there to Los Angeles and I singed a paper that I don't want a doctor"
Cons: "I didn't like the food"
Cons: "Being sick on the way back home from my Vacation!"
Pros: "It got me to my destination safely."
Cons: "The seats are way too close together for such a long flight. I fought off a panic attack for much of the trip. It was suffocating. I should not be able to give the person in front of me a head massage. The personal space humans should have was horribly invaded. I'm a 62 year old woman who's in good shape but even for me it was an act of gymnastics to get in and out of my seat. On my flight to Europe on the 13th with your airline our section of the plane did not have working monitors so it was like watching paint dry for 11 hours. So boring!"
Cons: "The vegetarian option was not as up to the standard of the meal travelling from Los Angeles to Frankfurt. It could be much improved in Business Class."
Pros: "Amazing service."
Pros: "Very nice flight, very little if no turbulence food was decent just luggage took forever"
Cons: "Luggage wait was an hr other then that the A380 which is my favorite plane was amazing"
Pros: "row 34 bulkhead was good leg room (I am 6'4")"
Cons: "Crew did a poor job getting food out on time. They rushed the final food service with less than 1hour left to LAX and had to eat very quickly before descent and had little/no time to fill out customs cards. In seat entertainment TV worked very poorly - very slow response to pressing buttons and very slow load of content."
Pros: "The flight Crew was very attentive and went the extra mile to keep us happy during our flight, the head stewardess I give her a 10+. we will fly with Lufthansa again. great movies!"
Cons: "The flight from Roma to Frankfurt was late and we had to run what seemed like two miles to be able to catch our connecting flight to Los Angeles."
Pros: "service was good except for 1 attendant that didn't want to be there. Entertainment choices were very good."
Cons: "Food was very poor. Chicken was rubbery and the two pasta choices tasted horrible with no meat choice other than chicken. The biggest issue was the extreme delays from Lufthansa that ate into a 4+ hour layover that I should have had at LAX instead I arrived at the opposite terminal from my LAX flight with no time to get through customs and onto the plane I missed the plane by 10 minutes and had to book a hotel that wasn't paid for because it was Lufthansa's fault and not United which then put me and my family home a full 24 hours later than was originally planned."
Cons: "flight was late; food was not so great, lunch and dinner were the same; :-("
Pros: "On time. Smooth flight. Crew was extremely nice and helpful. Food was better than expected for airplane food."
Cons: "My particular seat had an entertainment system that only had about half the movies of the other seats. I notified the attendant who told me that this is a known issue that affects a number of seats on the plane."
Pros: "The onboard staff worked throughout the trip taking care of the passengers."
Cons: "The plan was over 4 hours late leaving and we had to board an Airbus 380 with buses. There was never any clear explanation as to why the flight was delayed."
Cons: "I missed flight to Los Angeles because of laziness and carelessness of Lufthansa employees. I came with the train on 12/26/16 at 8:33 am to catch flight to Los Angeles at 10:05 am. I had plenty of time. As soon as got of the train I got into line to check my luggage. I had boarding pass already. Line to check luggage was huge with 2-3 clerks to check luggage for all US flights. After while I complained that I will miss flight to several clerk who were standing around talking on the phones all the time but answer, if I got one was, sir you will be fine. After one hour I got to security check line which was equally long. I complained again no response. With probably 20 minutes left I cut the line on my one mad as hell. I got at 10:00 am at the gate and some older lady was like " Sorry sir we closed the flight". I said "What do you mean, it is 10 am and flight is at 10:05am??? "Sir we sold your ticket" I couldn't believe her words. Anyway they sent me to Munich to catch flight to LA next day. Best part I HAD TO PAY HOTEL IN MUNICH BECAUSE LUFTHANSA DID WANT TO COVER EXPENSES. I don't know what happened to famous German organizational skills or this is just Lufthansa and her careless employees."
Pros: "Excellent crew service. Nice man from Italy who spoke Italian, German, Spanish and English. I cannot recall his name (Gian....??) but he was wonderful. Helpful, professional and congenial. Thank you."
Cons: "Bathrooms were well ventilated, very strong smell."
Pros: "Really NOTHING!!!"
Cons: "I didn't enjoy I had to search if my flight was cancelled due to. Lufthansa pilots strike. I'm not enjoying to still wait to find out if I have a flight to get back to the States on Monday because my flight was cancelled. I'm really annoyed to get this survey since Lufthansa should know there was NO flight to LA today!!!"
Pros: "Extra legroom, pillows, headphones, and blanket provided. I liked that I had my own screen. Snacks and drinks were offered in between meals. Water constantly available which is important for hydration on such a long flight."
Pros: "TV & movie selection, food and drinks were great! staff was friendly and there seemed to be a bit more room between seats!"
Pros: "Clean large toilets. enough of them so you need not wait. toilet area large so you can walk around. Crew friendly and always anticipating our needs. I liked the hot towels handed out twice during flight. Also the 2 delicious hot meals and snack. The captain didn't turn on seat belt sign at all; others turn it on after 3 or 4 seconds of slight turbulence and leave it on for the next 30 minutes even when it is smooth after that."
Cons: "More current movie selection would be nice."
Cons: "6 hour delay , no explanation given whether the original flight was cancelled or not, bags have been lost. Complete chaos."
Pros: "On the whole, classy service and comfortable The flight attendant who took the time to help me understand how customs would work"
Cons: "The flight attendant who said she'd get back to me when I had a question about connecting flights. Not only did she not get back to me, but with annoyance asked me hadn't I heard the captain's message on the loudspeaker. The captain had said to ask a flight attendant for further info, which is what I was trying to do."
Pros: "Comfortable, crew are very helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "Food isn't that good"
Pros: "The trip was o k and the crew performed well"
Cons: "The connecting time in London was too much"
Pros: "The A-380 is outstanding. Seats are good, even in economy. Entertainment system is great."
Cons: "It seems to me that boarding by Groups has not helped in the least bit, instead it has made things slower. It's bad enough that the charges and limitations on luggage have forced everyone to try to board with their suitcases... The group system just makes things worse. I recommend BA compares itself to Lufthansa, Swiss, Qatar, Thai, whatever, and avoid trying to match Easyjet and American Airlines on service levels. Oh, and there is no excuse for long delays and cancellations in the most important airport in Europe. At least not for a simple dusting of snow."
Pros: "The crew made your needs a top priority which was nice. This trip was my first time flying British Airways, I normally fly United, but the price was too good to pass up. I will definitely be using BA in the future from now on. Overall a great experience!"
Cons: "None! All pros!"
Cons: "FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED IN THE LAST MINUTE, I WAS STRANDED IN LONDON AND HAD NO COMPENSATION"
Pros: "Everything was fine! The plane is super big so you don’t feel nothing !"
Cons: "Everything was perfect, nothing bad to say ! Just a few problems with the entretement TVs but whatever ! Hahahaha the personal it’s good !"
Pros: "There was one female stewardess who was extremely kind and helpful"
Cons: "They ran out of food for the back of the plane Bathrooms were FILTHY! Flight delayed by an hour Lost our luggage and then gave us the run-around about how we can get it back, when we would receive it, and did not compensate us for anything; ruined our weekend plans Extremely rude steward who, when we were upset about not having food behaved as if we should be grateful just to be in his company This flight was the exact opposite of what I have come to expect and appreciate about BA... Not sure I would ever endorse flying with them again..."
Pros: "Great staff except for the idiot who kept walking back and forth with his loud shoes purposely seeking attention. Good wasn’t so bad as typical plane food."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Not many entertainment selections."
Pros: "Very little."
Cons: "Awful (typically BA) configuration im Club World on a 787 - cramped, inadequate storage, just lacking essential comfort for a supposed premium class. Food: seriously, I've had better in student cafes. Just stop it BA - its like some kind of prison food. Entertainment: meh. Small selection of new release movies. Crew: with the exception of one - just one from a complement of 15 odd - of the crew, the rest were a surly, inhospitable miserable bunch. If you hate your job don't take it out on customers - especially in a service industry."
Pros: "All of the flight attendants were extremely sweet!"
Cons: "It is difficult to get in and out of chair. I wish the chair handle would be moved up . Every time I needed to go to bathroom , I hurt myself."
Pros: "The staff are good and attentive"
Cons: "Just the delay and long flight but that's something that BA has no control"
Cons: "A couple of mishaps by the crew with no acknowledgement. One of the flight attendants dropped an empty soda can on the floor which was dropped on my toes (I had taken my shoes off) and picked it up with no acknowledgement or apology, even after I screamed out of pain. I was speechless that I didn't even object. In another incident, when asked for food option, I chose chicken vs pasta. When opened my hot plate after 2-3 minutes, I found out I had tofu in front of me. I called the flight attendant and they came over, acknowledged I had the wrong food just to inform me they were out of chicken at that point. If you make a mistake, please offer something in return to make the experience somewhat better."
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: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "Crew service was surprisingly not very welcoming/friendly. Felt like a burden to request anything. THe food was extremely low quality and lacked nutrition. Food make me feel like he opposite of energized."
Pros: "The crew and entertainment was great on this flight! Other than that, it is kind of hard to find positives."
Cons: "We were delayed by 30 minutes for whatever reason and then we were trapped in the air for 11 hours in tiny seats. The seat wasn't very comfortable and I didn't have much room to sit and for my legs. I had a stupid box under the seat in front of me with airplane stuff in it I guess, so that took up some room under the seat in front of me. I had my legs stretched in the aisle most of the flight. The food wasn't great, but what airline food is good? I was really expecting this aircraft to be like the Dream Liner, but overall it was just a big tin can in the sky."
Pros: "Flight attendants are so friendly, cheerful, personable and polite"
Cons: "BA website required payment for any seat selection, so I paid $35 for two aisle seats to be close to my husband. Then, BA website did not allow change or upgrade of seating when I at last discovered upper deck availability and paid another $50 each for us to sit together.. I purchased seating months in advance, and so did friends travelling with me, but my husband's seat was given free to a man who said had just purchased 2 days prior. I purchased my one friend an exit row seat in main cabin for $75 but BA gave it to someone else. Yes, I want refunds and will be writing more about this to BA and posting about this horrid discomfort."
Cons: "Staff where very rude. I asked if me and my partner could move as the person in front had there seat back therefore my knees got damaged and grazed they simply said we can't move you and left I asked a number of times I was ignored"
Pros: "Excellent service and the crew was very friendly"
Pros: "This was a great flight, seats were spacious and comfortable, food was hot and tasty. Entertainment also good - variety and quality."
Cons: "Not quite enough drinks given out for an 11 hour flight but otherwise great."
Pros: "In flight entertainment, food and everyone was great!"
Cons: "No issues"
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: "The food was good and the flight attendants were attentive, especially considering the number of passengers. Overall, British Airways does a much better job than most American airlines."
Cons: "As with most airlines, the seats were cramped, especially when the person in front of me reclined their seat."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and took their time answering questions. We were offered liquids often, the food was just OK, the entertainment units worked well, the chairs were relatively comfortable.. We were allowed to wait for the restrooms. Yeah,,,"
Cons: "The food could be better and of course more leg room."
Pros: "Decent leg room, crew and entertainment."
Cons: "Upon landing late in London from Rome there was no one to bring the walkway to the plane so had to wait on the plane when we were already behind schedule on a tight connection. THEN having to go through second security check in London when changing planes and security in terminal C was closed so had to transfer to terminal B for security and back to C to catch flight barely making it! Luggage did not make connection. Promised it will be delivered today."
Pros: "Great equipment, fantastic service and punctual."
Pros: "Long flight but free personal entertainment screens and free food breakfast, lunch dinner and snack. Free wine with the dinner"
Pros: "flight was on time. Checking in was easy, and well directed. As for entertainment, plenty of new release movies to view."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable, due to a metal box under the seats . You have to sit with legs in an angle, instead of straight; After 9 hours, it's very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Great staff and actually comfortable :)"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Great movie selection! Really good...."
Cons: "I'm 5.10 so seats are much worse for me because of long legs! Especially on a long flight :("
Pros: "Entertainment selection."
Cons: "The air was stale. No circulation. It made me sick."
Pros: "Food was great. Service was great"
Cons: "There were these metal boxes in floor and there was no leg room"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and staff was friendly. On board the service was great. All flight attendants were smiling, friendly and kept coming through the economy cabin with orange juice and water to make sure we were all well hydrated. We received lunch, movie snacks, and a mini pizza lunch. The only meal that wasn't great was the mini pizza."
Cons: "The only minor issue we had on this flight was that our entertainment units stopped playing movies 4 hours before we landed. The cabin crew tried resetting it a few times and tried everything they could to fix it, but it didn't work. They did compensate us for the inconvenience so that was nice."
Pros: "Flight crew were very nice. The entertainment was nice. The inflight meal was good."
Cons: "British airways told us we can't take our standard size carry on in the flight and have to check it in. They damaged our luggage. The personnel at their LAX kiosk were very rude when we wanted to report the damaged bag and turned a nice experience into a bad one."
Cons: "The seats and the conglomeration at boarding time."
Pros: "Good Service and acceptable food quality."
Cons: "Cramped economy seats w/AV box crowded foot space!"
Pros: "The food was good and the leg room was very good. The flight was on time."
Cons: "On both flight s going to LAX to London and London to LAX we were sitting in the back of the plan with all the families with noisy kids. on the flight to London I had two twins in one seat it was difficult for the mother and the children were all over the place. with a tantrum at the end of the flight because of having to have the seat belt on. On the flight home we were in the last row and all kinds of crying kids. If I ever fly again on British Air I want a seat further forward but if is hard to pre book your seat. We are in our 70's and would like a quieter area."
Pros: "Excellent entertainment system! Food was good too!"
Cons: "Flight crew was snotty and condescending - put off by doing their job. We didn't ask for anything - they are just rude. Lost bag - 8 days later - still missing!!"
Pros: "Entertainment, food, drinks, service."
Cons: "Lost all our luggage"
Cons: "Departure time was 4:10 pm, and they finished boarding at 4:45 pm. Then we had to sit in the plane on the tarmac for another 2 hours, while the captain kept coming up with the weirdest excuses about why we are delayed. First they had to do a manual passenger head count, because the numbers didn't add. After an hour, he says they are finally done counting and are waiting for the truck to push the plane on to the runway. He says that since this is a A380, it needs a bigger truck that is in short supply at Heathrow!! He came on the intercom few more times in the next hour with more excuses about why we are delayed, but by then I was too mad to remember what the hell he was saying."
Pros: "Was on time"
Pros: "The crew were ALL super friendly. My first time on a flight were ALL the stewards were polite, kind and helpful. Usually there's just one, if any. However they were all so friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Although I was in business class the service seemed unattentive and sparse. The crew did not check for passengers needing additional drinks and did not clear the empty glasses until almost the end of the flight. Overall, the crew seemed more suited to economy class than business class."
Cons: "We had a 4 hour delay . At the boarding the crew was not given accurate information. I even had to go to customer service and than tto a station manager to make sure that I would get the correct information. Once handled the crew and also the station manager was good."
Cons: "I arrived in Los Angeles on a Saturday and was told my luggage was still in London but they would have someone deliver it to me the next day (Sunday) 5-8 pm. No one showed up or bothered to call. I checked the status and was told 10 pm. No one showed. I was then told 12-1 AM. No one showed. No one bothered to call. No one showed up until 3 AM Monday morning. I took my frustrations to twitter and it looks like this is a common occurrence with British Airways."
Pros: "The best-flight entertainment I have ever had on a trans-Atlantic flight. The flight also arrived forty minutes earlier than estimated."
Pros: "Well it was operated through American Airlines so it wasn't BA. I don't understand why they do that. And I didn't know it at time of booking. Anyway flight was annoying at first bc it took 10 years to take off. The crew was so so. There was a rude attendant who was male and a really nice one. The guy seemed irritated to be working or asked any questions. The food was decent. And I was lucky to get my own row. So I slept the whole 10 hours. I'd have to check the plane next time I flew with American. The plane on way out of states was awful!!! So it was meh overall."
Cons: "Rude attendant Wouldn't let me use bathroom while it talking 30 years to take off."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice!"
Cons: "The passengers in front of us were not told to put their seats up during dinner or lunch time. I think, the flight attendant should make that passenger aware. It's very uncomfortable to eat. We were left without service/water between meals. If you are not seated by the aisle, it is not easy to walk to the back and ask for drinks. I flew with other airlines and they have their flight attendants go around quite often offering water."
Pros: "Missed flight, but British Airways put us on a united flight the next morning and paid for the hotel, dinner and breakfast. Baggage checked into British Airways in Rome arrived safely on the United flight at LAX. You need to have a non applicable column above."
Cons: "Missed this flight due to the plane arriving late in Rome."
Pros: "Flight crew very nice."
Cons: "Tv touch screen unresponsive, kept starting movie over."
Cons: "There was nothing about the trip to like. I still have not made it to Agadir. The flight in Denver was delayed two hours, causing my family to miss all connections. This I turn required me to fork out $1000 additional to make it to my final destination."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "Horrendous experience from checking to the airport. Be aware when trying to check in online, not only posible if you don’t pay a fee to choose seats. Therefore you are unable to check in until the last minute, and as they overbook the flight, if you don’t pay, You risk not get into the plane."
Cons: "A bit late getting underway but flight crew courteous, plane clean, deboarding efficient. Overall, reasonably comfortable efficient budget airline"
Cons: "boarding was slow"
Cons: "Did not get to this flight due to cancellation from the initial flight"
Pros: "Because kayak did not alerted me my flight had to be moved to Miami since is the only city that provides passports the same day. This extra expense costed me over 400$ in hotels gas and extra parking costs."
Cons: "Kayak services were terrible and I do not plan to use them again. The website should have alerted me that I needed a passport valid for longer than 3 months to my flight for Spain."
Pros: "The food was great"
Cons: "I have not gotten my baggage for my flight I have been here 3 days after I landed"
Pros: "Good but not the delay"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours so I missed my coach from Barcelona to valencia and had to pay €34.50 for another ticket can you please try to refund me this money."
Pros: "The crew are so helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Our flight was ridiculously delayed due to fog no fault of the airline but the communication was terrible"
Cons: "Seats are like deck chairs with no leg room"
Pros: "Getting off the plane in Barcelona"
Cons: "Extremely poor service by the cabin crew. They were extremely lethargic and slow with service. So much so that numerous rows of seats with young families were never served. No announcement or apology, they just stopped serving as they needed to prepare to land. They knew from the start how long they would have to serve drinks/snacks but didn’t care and definitely did not go out of their way to ensure everyone would be served. The worst service or total lack of that I’ve ever had."
Pros: "Staff and smooth fligfht"
Cons: "Really long delay with hardly any information of when takeoff will be"
Pros: "we reached our destination alive"
Cons: "We sat on the aircraft on the tarmac for two hours, no explanation. Food and drink were served 20 mins before landing, some people didn’t get a chance to have a drink. Staff were disorganised confused and rude. My debit card was handed to another passenger because the steward had no idea what he was doing. Beyond awful!"
Pros: "Seats were clean"
Cons: "Delayed flight which lead to then sitting in the plane on the runway awaiting a time to take off. Flight attendant didn’t serve the back half of then plane with drinks. Luggage Carousel kept changing."
Cons: "Flight delayed, no gate information till 18:40 - when flight was supposed to take off at 14:40 - then gate overcrowded by passengers from 3 different flights all to the same place. Crew members didnt know how to handle the situation and over 200 did not board the plane. However once taken to the plane lucky passengers had to wait outside on runway for approximately 40 mins as cabin crew also did not know how to handle the situation. Those with assigned seats did not get them and those with luggage to go in the cabin were informed there was no more space and luggage had to be put in the hold. We finally boarded the plane at approximately 8:40 but could not take off for another 2 hours where we were stuck on a small cramped space on a plane full to capacity not having eaten anything for hours with no idea of the progress of the situation. In conclusion I expect every passenger should receive a refund for not only the extrodinary 8 hour delay but for the mismanagement of the entire situation."
Pros: "Nothing.... Very poor. Generally Vueling has a poor image but I took a chance nothing has changed"
Cons: "On board the plane I was told you have to pay for all the food drinks quite abruptly maybe because I had shorts on and a tee shirt the lady in question thought I did not have much money.....Never go by how somebody is dressed that's my advice to your airline staff...."
Pros: "Safe flight, good leg room"
Cons: "Delayed departure, delayed boarding"
Pros: "Crew was nice and welcoming"
Cons: "Plane took off an hr later, not many vegetarian or vegan meals to choose from, my legs didn’t fit in my seating area..."
Cons: "Referral to Vuelungs site by BA for check in. Slow and difficult process to retrieve boarding pass."
Cons: "Very little legroom"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours was unable to catch my connecting flight in London to Barcelona. Had to buy another flight ticket in London, wait another day, pay for a night a hotel to get to my destination in Barcelona. I was supposed to arrive in Barcelona on Saturday April 1st and did not get there until 2 the following day. Will not use this service again."
Pros: "It was comfortable, clean and efficient."
Cons: "The crew didn’t know f they had any vegan food."
Pros: "Furious, Vueling is always late!!!"
Cons: "Always late,, they don't care!!"
Pros: "I paid extra for the extra-legroom seats, and that was good. Though they charge for snacks/food/drinks, I was fine with a free cup of water."
Cons: "Our seats up front (2nd row) didn't recline, and it wasn't because of bulkheads or exit rows. It was a short flight, so it wasn't too bad."
Pros: "Staff were fine, lovely to check in online and not have to worry"
Cons: "Once onboard we sat for nearly an hour going nowhere"
Pros: "Excellent check in . Before time arrival."
Pros: "Comfort and friendliness of crew"
Cons: "Everyone told to board at the same time but they no one being boarded for over 30 mins. So left just standing in a long line for ages. Why tell us to board before you’re ready to board anyone? And why all at the same time and not groups of rows?"
Pros: "Made it to a new country safe and sound. Was nervous at first but relaxed once everything started going."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Everything else! Where am I supposed to put my legs?"
Pros: "I like very much weather of Barcelona which is ideal for me.people of spain very cooperative with excellent attitude."
Pros: "The low price and civilised flight times. Had no hold baggage."
Cons: "Attempts to get extra money by not allowing check in before 7 days without paying extra for choosing seats."
Pros: "Left on time !"
Cons: "Could not buy a beer as they “ran out” of alcohol! Cramped seats and could not position myself comfortably as just no leg room."
Cons: "Everything was Ok, staff, ladies are elegant and pleasant. Planes are on time. Could not be better"
Cons: "It was so uncomfortably cramped on the back row that my knees were numb by the end of the flight. I am tall but not ridiculously so. I think there should be minimum standards for legroom that exceed what was available on this flight."
Cons: "Seats were so small we could hardly fit. Airplane was extremely hot inside. No leg room at all for 5he middle seat and window seat passengers."
Pros: "Flight not shown delayed at airport. Eventually left an hour late. No information or apology at boarding gate. Staff went and hid so the desk was empty. No apology or explanation on board either. Flight got us from A to Be but with zero grace or service. As a first experience this was bad."
Cons: "Zero service"
Cons: "2h delay for an already late flight. landed at 2am."
Cons: "Was not what I expected when booking with British Airways. This low budget airline did not continue the level of service expected when I booked the trip. It was like riding a bus in the sky. #NoComplimentaryAnything"
Cons: "Very very small amount of legroom Flight was delayed c.90 minutes, there wasn't a lot of information and eventually were told they had to use a different plane, which may have explained it's quite poor old condition."
Cons: "Small. Narrow seats. Late flight"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed over 3 hs, they kept changing the departure date with no explanation over and over again. about3 0 ppl couldnt even get on that plane. a complete disaster."
Cons: "Everything from the waiting time to boarding"
Cons: "Paid $180 one way trip on a cheap airline. I expected to fly with British Airways. That is what was sold to me. Like the airline pulled a fast one on me. I do not like this at all and extremely upset."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Had to change seats"
Cons: "This flight is always late. Sucks."
Pros: "Smooth loading and unloading"
Cons: "Food none. Entertainment none."
Pros: "Modern aircraft. Very clean. Polite staff. Some more willing than others to be friendly and helpful. Staff left you be rather than bombarding you with sales of various items like with some other low cost airlines"
Cons: "Boarding was very late for no apparent reason. Left us almost an hour delayed once boarded. Some of the staff were unfriendly while others were lovely. Not much space at all between the seats both forwards and back. In flight service was poor. As I booked through BA I expected a BA style of flight; in flight meal and drinks."
Cons: "Everyone had boarded onto the plane and we sat at the gate for an hour and a half before they finally closed the door to leave the gate. We were given no reason for the delay. We arrived in Barcelona 2 hours late at 2:45am."
Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "Service was awful - like early days Ryanair with surly stewardesses only serving food and drink to half the aircraft because there was "no time" for more on a 2 1/2 hour flight."
Cons: "Was delayed, not operates by iberia but vueling and was advertised as british airways flight, spaces were cramped"
