Pros: "Very attentive, friendly and multi-lingual crew. Everything was on time. Food was very good. Excellent."
Pros: "Cathay Pacific continues to delivery a stellar experience in first class even on shorter legs such as the soon to be discontinued New York to Vancouver flight (888/865). They even brought back Krug, which they opened on the ground no less in New York, and offer access to AA Flagship Dining at JFK which itself offers flagship dining."
Pros: "Liked the plug/outlet availablity and the movies."
Cons: "Did not get up to date info on the final destination of bags. Food inedible, climbed from tarmac up the stairs into the plane, seats super uncomfortable, not enough customer service from flight attendants"
Cons: "All services throughout the process need to be improved from the ground to on board"
Pros: "Even with a full flight there was enough leg room. The crew were attentive and accomadating."
Cons: "Bathroom floors were often wet"
Pros: "The seat space, and the ability to recline the seat was surprising."
Cons: "It is what it is."
Pros: "The onboard crews were excellent. The entertainment was good too. However, the HK check in counter staffs were terrible, rude, condescending, unprofessional. They left bad tastes in our mouths and ruined the whole trip experience."
Cons: "Cathay HK check in counter staffs need to be courteous, respectful, and professional. They need to be trained not to be rude, condescending, disrespectful, unprofessional"
Pros: "The crew is very proactive."
Cons: "I ordered low calorie meals for all 4 flights. VERY DISAPPOINTED. Absolutely unpalatable food. If someone from catering has the time I would be glad to speak with her/him and explain why I went hungry. Tel. +971561881810"
Pros: "Food is delicious and fresh"
Cons: "The inflight Entertainemnt is lacking. Shows are too old and few."
Cons: "Food options listed on menu were not available. Breakfast was served so late that crew said not enough time to make/serve hot coffee or tea. During flight no crew ever came around to offer more water or liquid between meals. TV was in German with no instructions on how to change language to English. Bathrooms were not kept clean. Also, when boarding at the HK airport, after disabled and families, everyone was asked to board at the same time which resulted in one very long line of several hundred people."
We purchased a Go First Pass for 10 Euros each so we could board first, but everyone was able to board at the same time so we wasted 20 Euros. The flight left ab out 15 minutes late and was not allowed to land at Healthrow so we had to circle Heathrow for about 45 minutes. This caused us to almost miss our flight from Heathrow to Atlanta.
Severely delayed with no notice. Could have arrived at the airport hours later had we been informed of the delay
Once the boarding sign went on and all passengers gathered in line, we were left waiting standing up for almost an hour because there was a delay.
The business class layout on this plane is tightly packed and atrocious with no sense of privacy.
Airmalta does not include meals in their flights and neither offers entertainment.
Pros: "I didn’t like anything"
Cons: "The female FA gave me an attitude when I asked about moving to a window seat"
Cons: "Both times into Rome we had to wait on the tarmac for stairs. Either get more stairs or book fewer flights. The planes get hot in July while you wait endlessly on stairs."
Cons: "The flight itself was absolutely fine but we are very unhappy with the what lastminute.com did regarding our tickets. (As you will see when you look at the notes for our case). We shall be seeking legal assistance upon the return from our holiday & contacting you/lastminute.com for compensation."
Pros: "fabulous flight and crew"
Cons: "Perfect take off perfect landing so smooth nothing more can be better - Thank you!"
Cons: "Check in was a mess. I paid for a seat but was given a seat at the back. Fortunately, I had the print out and insisted to Ck it."
For the amount of money charged, it was ludicrous (actually quite insulting) that they used such an old plane for a prime long haul route. Food was terrible. Entertainment was a joke. Time travelled back to the 90s with a 7 once screen and 3 ridiculous options for a hindi movie. The staff was the only saving grace. They were extremely helpful. I will give this route one more shot with BA - if it stays this way, I reckon we'll fly with some other airline. Lots of others saying the same thing as we were all chatting after getting off the flight.
Cons: "Continues the use of entertainment tv program during the delays - take off was delayed, descending was delayed and parking was delayed."
Pros: "Given that this flight, like just about every other BA9 flight for the past week, was a delayed departure, this flight delayed 3 hours, it is difficult to say that this was a good flight. The flight was full, and some business class passengers moved to economy class, with some economy passengers being removed from the flight to free up essential "rest areas" for the crew."
Cons: "Whilst I understand that the planes make no money sitting on the tarmac, maybe the schedule needs tweaking to permit a little more time for maintenance?"
Pros: "We finally got there."
Cons: "Make water available at Heathrow 5 (2drinking fountains for thousands) and no water or any drink on the plane."
Pros: "Flight good, crew helpful and no problem with boarding."
Cons: "No hot food and no announcement in the Airport. Limited choice of other food."
Pros: "Nothing. The fact that I booked my ticket via British Airways, but operated by Iberia made my situation very confusing. Iberia didn't offer me a connection flight from MAD to VLC when there was a 6 hours delay from JFK to MAD."
Cons: "Partner airline should have a better process to help customers when the help is needed the most! There was neither ownership nor responsibility held accountable by Iberia to help me find a connection flight between MAD to VLC. I had to pay for a Renfe ticket on my own to get to VLC - Nightmare!"
Cons: "It’s hard to get used to not having seat-back entertainment when you’ve had it the rest of the trip!"
Pros: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Cons: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Pros: "New Years flight... very special. Great staff and grear entertainment on board"
Cons: "The flight data was not showing... could have been interesting especially on a New Years flight"
Cons: "My flight was changed to a later flight without giving me a reason. I was never given the option of why this happened. As a result i missed my meeting."
Cons: "There is no space for legs. The food quality is poor. No entertainment at all"
Cons: "There was an altercation between two passengers on the flight that escalated to four people being involved. The crew did little to nothing to resolve the situation. As a result, screaming persisted for multiple minutes until the passengers stopped themselves."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Charles dGaul airport security was redundant and slow. A more cohesive flight change would have been better."
Cons: "When the flight is delayed by five hours, some information would have been welcome, as would a complimentary drink. We received neither. Then when we did fly, there was hardly any food on board."
Pros: "Don’t sit in Window seat 40A. Smallest on the plane."
Pros: "I was very impressed first time user and will use again"
Pros: "Am very upset with how I got treated"
Cons: "Paid GBP 26.99 to be able to take with me my carry-on that was refused by a groundstaff standing outside and informing me she determined what would happen. Bad bad experience and paying GBP 26,99 for nothing is a real shame"
Cons: "Lady at the counter was absolutely rude and digusting. She had no manners and customer service at all. She was screaming at people to place everything in one bag, instead of saying it calmly. Not the best start of your holidays at 6am."
Pros: "What a landing from the pilot. Straight from the aviation textbook."
Cons: "12 min delay."
Pros: "Friendly crew - given access to visit the cockpit as we were delayed for 2 hours. Pilot and copilot happy to show the cabin and answer questions."
Cons: "Check in and bag drop took an hour and we were finally rushed through passed other passenger seat to get us to the flight. We boarded fairly quickly and once all boarded we were told the flight will be delayed for 2 hours. They gave us water and access to the cockpit as stated above. Eventually we took off after 2 hours. We waited another 2 hours for food to be served only to find they had run out of everything accept crisps sweet and drinks. Having left the hotel at 8.30 to get to the airport we very hungry and obviously not happy at this situation to say the least. Pringles and a twix didn’t quite do the trick."
Cons: "Going on time without delay, more staff to avoid long lines"
Pros: "It was short"
Cons: "Lines were 20 times longer than every other airline and we almost missed our flight because of it. The seats were u comfortable and small."
Cons: "Had to stand outside in rain & wind while waiting to board. Took a very long time to board. Very loud people. Excessively loud engine noise. Attendant made me open my window shade. Small seat did not recline. No seat pocket for magazine."
Cons: "Delays!? Every single time the departure late at least an hour or 3. Wasting people’a time and money."
Pros: "Nothing. They were late, disorganized the seat assignment was a real mess. During the flight they sold raffles, perfumes etc. No refreshments served. 6 euros for a coke? Is this a joke. The seats were small no space for legs. The plane was dirty. Please dont sell that airline anymore. It is a disgrace."
Cons: "Excessive time to pass security, opening every bags, we were 30 passengers not able to board because Ryan Air agent didn’t wait and closed the door right in front of us when we arrived at the gate."
Pros: "Crew was nice. Flight was quick."
Cons: "We had to pay for drinks and snacks. At least give us the beverages free. And all the announcements to buy and donate weren’t pleasant. And paying for my baggage was £40 which is ridiculous. Considering that Manchester airport doesn’t allow liquids."
Pros: "I bought two tickets together and they wouldn’t allow sit together even though the aircraft was half empty, another stupid way to overcharge"
Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "I had trouble connecting to the WiFi at my hostel and online check in closes 2 hours before the flight, so I just decided to check in at the airport. Well, I learned that doing this results in a €50 charge per ticket zapping preshious funds for the rest of my travels."
