Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The screen"
Pros: "The staff were helpful. The entertainment had good variety. Adjustable head rest was useful."
Cons: "The seat was a little lumpy. More leg room would always be appreciated."
Cons: "Very cramped aisle seat and I kept being knocked by passing crewe including knocking over a cup of water."
Pros: "Speedy boarding and good locker space"
Cons: "Lack of room in seat especially with seat in front reclined."
Pros: "Craig in first cabin flight crew was amazing. :))))"
Cons: "My tv screen could not show the movies"
Pros: "Comfy, nice crew, attentive."
Cons: "The food is not very good at all. One mediocre meal served soon after take-off, then for the rest of the flight tasteless, cardboard pasties and wraps."
Pros: "I had one of the few empty seats next to me."
Cons: "The food is awful. Not enough toilets."
Cons: "My bag was damaged in transit"
Pros: "Provides the service you'd expect from an international carrier. Boarded on time, seat actually reclines, meals, baggage, seat assignments are included in the price. Staff treat you well and the price isn't bad."
Cons: "Virgin website is slow and not intuitive. Couldn't get seat assignment until i was at the gate. No explanation why. Boarding announcements delivered via ESP. Half of the passengers were still in the boarding area because no one heard announcements. Arrived 30 min early but had to wait on the tarmac for 45 min for a parking gate. Baggage delivery at JFK took forever."
Pros: "Everything except the food"
Cons: "The food is atrocious. Even if I have to pay to upgrade my meal, I would..."
Cons: "Missed connection to SFO"
Cons: "Queue at boarding gate for upper class ticket holders Bus transfer to plane - Virgin is not a LoCo airline! Upper Class Service was slow - understaffed?"
Cons: "Why do I have to get a new boarding pass in London"
Pros: "We paid extra for exit row seats so we had good leg space"
Cons: "The seats are so small that only your backside fits on it and we are not big people. There is no support for the thigh and I had severe cramps after leaving the aircraft. The flight to LA with Virgin Australia was far more comfortable."
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent!"
Cons: "I paid extra for Economy Delight seats for me and my wife. Shortly after take-off, our calm and comfortable more or less empty section of the aircraft was colonised by an extended family of Orthodox Jews in a kind of airborne West Bank situation. They weren’t in our section of the cabin at all to start with, and I don’t know why they were apparently able to get a free upgrade that I had to pay £100 for. We went from being in an almost empty cabin to being basically sat in the middle of an Orthodox Jewish kindergarten. It was awful! They were noisy, messy, were constantly getting in and out of their seats, the back of my seat kept getting kicked, and there was even a baby crawling around the aisle. We were surrounded. I have no idea whether this is characteristic of Orthodox Jewish family life, or just a completely inconsiderate family. They didn’t exactly ruin my flight, but they didn’t make it enjoyable either. I asked to be moved. The cabin crew were great and acknowledged the difficulty of the situation. My wife lost her window seat but at least we still had the legroom and peace and quiet."
Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Seats and legroom poor if you’re six feet tall"
Pros: "Staff were excellent and very friendly, service was great, and the entertainment on board was very good."
Cons: "We were waiting in our seats for about an hour before take off due to a need to de-ice the plane due to snowy weather. I think everyone would have been more comfortable in the waiting area while this happened, or at least given the option to do so."
Cons: "I had to run for almost 2 miles every time I had to change the flight. On the way to India they lost my one bag, and on the way back to US they lost my both begs."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, excellent food and drinks. Very happy with the service we received"
Pros: "Checking in at the counter even I wasn't allocated a seat but the gentleman was very humble and polite."
Cons: "The fact that I was told I would be given a seat at the boarding gate. I got to the airport very early to get a good seat only to be that and was given a very uncomfortable seat where I couldn't stretch my legs well because of a box on the floor situated to my left leg and to make the matter even more annoying my screen was not working which I was forced to take one heavy meant-so-called laptop. And finally cabin crew were lacking serious customer service and when u ask for something they were just so reluctant to deliver as if we were given a free ticket or something. May it be noted that my ticket was not that cheap to be treated in such manner."
Pros: "Cool flight, mainly because it was empty. Good food"
Cons: "Seats weren't that comfortable. Entertainment sucked because the screen functions were terrible, very difficult"
Cons: "Too much food - not enough time to sleep in comfort!"
Pros: "Quite a big choice of movies and TV shows to watch, more than enough for an eight hour flight. Normal headphone plugs so you can use your own."
Cons: "I booked together with my wife, yet we were allocated seats apart and were not able to be reassigned together. The leg room was so tight that I could not pick up things off the floor without putting my head in the next persons lap. Though the cabin crew were smiley and friendly, it was hard to get their attention when needed. The PA system is much louder than the entertainment, so announcements were ear bursting. The dinner selections ran out early, so a good proportion did not get their choice."
Cons: "Food was terrible"
Pros: "We really enjoyed flying with Virgin and so made sure we booked into a Virgin flight for this trip and not delta. The food was good, entertainment good when it worked."
Cons: "We got told that our flight number had changed from VS103 to VS4049 but still a Virgin flight. Only when we checked in we found out we were now flying with Delta and number was now DL285. Was not happy as wanted to fly with Virgin.The seats were ok but the entertainment system went down mid film. Took an hour to get started again. The games didn't work. Staff were a bit grumpy."
Cons: "We were told over the phone that we could bring our kayaks with us to Africa but the airport staff denied not only our kayaks, but also our paddles which were in a standard ski bag. Their excuse was that both the kayaks and paddle bags were 2 inches too long. .. TWO INCHES!!!!!! We had record of the person we talked to and the time and date, but none of that seemed to matter. It caused A HUGE INCONVENIENCE for us since we are in Zambia for 6 weeks without our gear to paddle one of the most challenging rivers in the world... the Zambezi. Now we are constantly trying to acquire the proper equipment with very little success. We run a nonprofit called the Montana Kayak Academy which provides free whitewater instruction to youth between 8 &18 yrs old and we will be sure to tell everyone we know to NOT TRAVEL WITH EITHER VIRGIN ATLANTIC OR BRITISH AIRWAYS.... EVER!!! VERY DISAPPOINTED! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Cabin crew were friendly and attentive. Flight was on time and we got to Atlanta early"
Cons: "Could do with more legroom. Food not the greatest"
Pros: "I had a great experience from start to end of my trip. Most of the staff were pleasant and professional. Food wasn't okay and red wine on flight from Heathrow was delicious."
Cons: "The red wine on the flight from Lagos was too sharp. That is the regular one served on virgin flight so was glad when I tasted the new one served on the flight from Heathrow, thinking it's been changed!"
Pros: "the crew were the friendliest I've flown with (Irish & British)... the lighting was very relaxing and the continuous snack service was much appreciated (especially ice cream).. gonna try premium economy next time as the seats looked even better..."
Cons: "Vera the entertainment screen was very good but there were no newly released movies, everything seemed to be a couple of months old... the leather headrest was comfortable but kept slipping down to behind my neck, would be nice if it was lockable in position.."
Pros: "Everything went very fast and smooth. I didn't have to queue for the boarding. The Sita were very comfortable, the crew very friendly and halepful and the selection of the movies A+."
Cons: "My headphones and those of my neighbors did not work."
Pros: "1st class, what's not to like?"
Pros: "Food was great, plenty of it also"
Cons: "I'm 6'4" and there was no acknowledgement by the crew that I was squashed into a tight seat."
Pros: "comfort, entertainment, food"
Pros: "There are lots of relatively new movies to choose from."
Cons: "The complimentary headset breaks easily. Tray table was broken and they can't fix it. Very small bathrooms, knees almost touch the door when sitting down. Food selection for dinner ran out quickly, resulting in only 2 choices and one is hot spicy, so basically only one choice. All beverages are given out in small cups, even water is given out in small cups increments (finish in one gulp), they don't even give out small bottles of water. No complimentary packet (eye shades, socks etc.) , not even a barf bag for collecting trash."
Pros: "100% best flight ever"
Cons: "this is not an airline, this is a bus company"
Pros: "Virgin Atlantic had a very attractive decor.Food was great& staff as well. Polite and professional ."
Cons: "The seat I had was a bit snug leg wise and recline wise. Could not get comfortable at all."
Cons: "I did not get the requested meal. I had requested Asian Veg meal. I had reconfirmed that Virgin Atlantic Kiosk at Heathrow airport as well. In flight when I asked cabin crew they said they didn't get any request. I was hungry whole flight. Very bad experience."
Cons: "cabin was nice but cold"
Pros: "The plane was very nice with great lighting. More food would have been nice as it was a long flight The crew were variable - most very helpful but one or two not so much"
Cons: "Not enough food for everyone and no snacks between meals, which was very bad considering it was a 10 hour flight Entertainment was great, seats were OK (certainly had worse)"
Pros: "As expected, great customer service from Virgin. Great Vera system. Friendly and welcoming experience."
Cons: "The seats!!!! Omg I got bed sores. Not really but they have got to be the most uncomfortable things I have ever sat in. For a European flight from Uk they'd be fine. But for 9 hours...not good. The short hop down from ATL to MCO after was a blessed relief. Virgin, you have got to think a little more about your passengers asses. Also, having flown with just about every major transatlantic operator, including previous trips with Virgin, the knee room was not good. If you stretched out under the seat in front you were ok but draw your knees up... I wore short trousers for comfort and have sore points on my knees where they rubbed against the material of the chair in front."
Cons: "Cold draft at all times."
Pros: "Flight was on time .. Friendly crew. Good entertainment system"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable and leg room very tight . Didn't sleep well."

Cons: "Earlier food service for more sleep"
Pros: "Packed flight. Ground crew did best to minimize carryon luggage. Flight crew were accommodating and cheerful despite almost 1H delay in departure."

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

Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "Everything. Food, staff, checking in. All were great"
Cons: "Would have preferred they let me choose a window seat. I wasn’t given the option"
Pros: "The crew where extremely friendly, helpful and visible. As the flight was being boarded the gate agent saw me with my cane and she upgraded me to a seat closer to the front of the plane without being asked. Those extra little touches are appreciated"
Pros: "The crew were kind and courteous. The seat was comfortable."
Pros: "Boarding was swift and cabin crew where attentive. Baggage drop was swift and luggage arrived quickly. Global entry at ATL was swift."
Cons: "delta security in the UK is an absolute farce. The security screening at LHR was long and understaffed"
Pros: "Flight was on time and arrived a little early."
Cons: "I was seated next to a very large man (6’5” he said) and had no room in my seat. Thankfully the seats in front of us were empty and the flight attendant moved him."

Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Lack of subtitles on available movies & series"
Pros: "The flight is short"
Cons: "Delayed from 930pm to 6am. Didn't tell us till almost midnight. Because of scheduling issues not weather or anything. The check in people had no idea what I was talking about when I tried to check in for my 6am rescheduled flight."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and attentive. Boarding was good - efficient and quick."
Cons: "Seats were not that comfortable. Aircraft very noisy. Competition offers a much better service. Transfer in Atlanta was a nightmare, taking almost two hours from landing to getting to the domestic gate for the next sector. only three immigration staff working."
Pros: "The variety of what you could listen to or watch. Liked the way the seats reclined. Plenty of leg room (I am short)."
Pros: "There were alot of good movies to choose from, and the food wasn't bad."

Pros: "The food was excellent, as well as the flight attendants."
Cons: "All was well"
Pros: "Crew, food was good, comfort"
Cons: "The boarding .. We had to climb the steps to get in .. But the crew apologised"
Pros: "Extra leg room with Sky priority"
Cons: "We upgraded to Sky priority but we're not allowed to load with Sky priority. They made us wait for Zone 3. We also did not get the designated overhead space we paid for and had to put our bags under the seat in front of us. A bit disappointing to pay $240 extra and not get what we paid for."
Cons: "The entry into the Atlanta airport after landing was somewhat chaotic. We were backed up circling before landing for ~ 1 hour and there seemed to be an unusually large number of folks trying to get through customs/security - noe Delta's fault but an unwelcome experience after being in the air for 8+ hours."
Pros: "Super friendly and attentive crew. Good food. Nice new seats. Great tv entertainment options!"
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The wifi didn't work at all, the entertainment system wasn't working until they did a reboot during the flight"
Pros: "I like Delta empowering women."
Pros: "Meal quality has improved"
Pros: "Plenty of movies and music to entertain"
Cons: "Economy seats have no leg room and seats are very uncomfortable to your back during a 8hr flight. Flight attendants skipped rows for drinks, snacks, etc and would have to be called back. Paying close to a thousand per ticket, you'd expect a little better experience but oh well."
Pros: "Service was good. Attendants polite. Information good."
Pros: "There wasn't much to like. Just about everything was wrong. The plane was a newish 787, so it didn't feel old. Boarding went well because we complained about how tired we, at 70+, were because the flight was late and we'd been standing up; this resulted in us being boarded with some of the latish priority passengers."
Cons: "Everything, really. The plane was very crowded; small seats, little leg room. The meals were mediocre and the cabin staff were just barely the good side of unhelpful, officious and unfriendly The flight was inexplicably 2 hours or more late in excellent weather. No apologies given, the flight that was originally scheduled for 8 pm left close to 11 pm. While boarding the only light is a purplish ambient lighting that made it impossible to read anything, including the safety material, until the inflight entertainment was loaded up (the lights are only controlled through software-actuated virtual buttons on the screen). The inflight entertainment system is hard to use, too, designed by idiots for use by geniuses. But the very worst thing was the stress caused by Virgin Atlantic in just about guaranteeing that we would miss this flight. On our outbound voyage in January, VA, for reasons nobody knows, booked an ADDITIONAL leg from JHB to CPT on BA at 12:30 pm, even though we were already ON the earlier 9:30 BA flight we'd booked and paid for. Then, when we didn't show up for this spurious flight (because we were already in the air) we didn't book (BA swears they have evidence that VA made this booking), our return flight CPT to JBG three months later was cancelled WITHOUT OUR KNOWLEDGE. If I hadn't been interested in knowing, the day before the flight, if the return BA flight had a meal, I would have showed up at the CPT airport in April and discovered that I had no way to get to the VA flight in JHB! As it was I spent an entire day trying to get back on the flight I'd already paid for. I advise EVERYONE who uses VA to reconfirm flights over and over. There is still no explanation for this. I will never NEVER fly VA again. They are not to be trusted."
Cons: "Entertainment was working, watching movie when they said done didn't have do they were resetting system. They tried twice taking over an hour and it never came back on for anyone..... :("
Pros: "Boarding and deplaning were efficient. Crew was good. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Seat was near the restroom and there was an odor for the second half of the flight. Issues with the A/V - hum in the headphones and the touch screen only worked intermittently. Cabin temperature was a bit cold."
Pros: "Delta is known to be one of the best airlines and they stand up to it in every flight."

Pros: "The plane size & comfort was excellent. The staff were very friendly"

Cons: "Plane is super old and outdated. Comfort seat is not, comfortable, very tight. TV screen is not good quality, with the old controls on a handset. No touch, no 1/8 inch audio jack (it has the old 3 holes one). Wifi for streaming freezes every other second. Just make a face lift to the plane, everything else is good."

Cons: "The air conditioners fan was bad and they had to fix it in London which took over 40 minutes off travel time...we arrived much later than expected in Lagos"
Cons: "This return flight was much better than the flight going to Amsterdam. I believe the biggest factor was the type of aircraft. The old 747 just didn't meet expectations. The newer 777 on the way back was much more comfortable, with better amenities."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and the seat at economy comfort was comfortable at the “ok” level. It needs much mor3 to be super comfortable. The plug for the headphones was a mess! It was NOT possible to watch a movie and hear the sound too! I gave up! Not a great offering for the extra dollars..."
Cons: "So many things! Starting with the way assistance in the airport is offered to travellers with mobility issues! This is an important issue that needs to be revisited and changes for better service to be made!"
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful (our flight was 2h late so they put us on the one before in business class for us not to miss our connection)"
Cons: "A lot of delays, on both flights. We spent twice as much time waiting than flying."

Pros: "newer plane, good staff"
Cons: "need better and more food options, more often"
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised they had a snack service on such a short flight. The flight attendants were very friendly"
Cons: "Amsterdam customs is the most disorganized I have ever seen. With the number of tourists entering the country you would think they would have done something about it. There were only 2 customs agents!! One for all passports and 1 for all passports. We were in the customs hall longer than we were in flight!"
Cons: "OLD OLD plane with hard seats and tiny screens"
Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "Sears we're toooo small"
Pros: "Wider seat than most business class"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"

Cons: "The entertainment was quite dated and didn't have new movies etc"
Pros: "That we didn't crash"
Cons: "Being delayed and missing my connecting flight. No entertainment onboard (for hours and hours)."
Pros: "The crew were lovely and welcoming. We was given snacks and drinks on the flight which was great. Take off was a bit delayed but boarding was smooth. Couldn't complain about the comfort as was only just over an hours flight."
Pros: "Overall, my trip to Cardiff via Amsterdam was smooth and delightful. I've flown a few short trips this summer and I was pleasantly surprised to find KLM still offered complimentary snacks. What a refreshing change!"
Cons: "There was no entertainment which is why I assigned that category only one star. The boarding process in Amsterdam could have been a bit smoother. Announcements were no clear."
Pros: "Flight attendants tried their best given what they had to work with."
Cons: "They can not retire these old Boeing 747's soon enough. Due to mechanical problems, our flight arrived at LAXfour and a half hours late and further problems with the cargo door caused an additional one hour delay of our take off."
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "Short layover connecting from US flight and luggage transferred ok to destination. Food option not great but at least they didn't charge for it unlike some other airlines. No entertainment but to be expected on such a short flight."

Pros: "Was able to check in online, very convenient and easy to access site."
Cons: "I didn't go on this flight, unable to leave Seoul (to Beijing) with China Southern."
Pros: "Unexpected surprise--even on a 1 hour flight at noon, they gave us a sandwich!"
Cons: "Our flight from Nairobi to Lusaka was cancelled for some reason and we did not find out until we happened to log into the website to double check our itinerary. They automatically rescheduled the flight only giving us 25 minutes to reach our next flight...impossible. so, after calling, we were re-booked again and forced into a 13 hour layover in Amsterdam. Our original flight plan had 4 hours. so, because we are a family of 7 with a baby, we had to buy a hotel room to rest, costing us a lot of extra money we had not planned to spend. We contacted KLM for help with the cost but were rejected. We also lost 5 bags somewhere between Chicago and Lusaka, but after 2 days, we received them."
Cons: "Quality of food especially the main meal."
Cons: "Boarding at Heathrow is horribly inefficient."
Pros: "Nothing to complain about. A nice, calm trip."
Cons: "It would have been nice if members of my group could have flown together instead of being scattered around the airplane."
Pros: "The boarding process and its ease"
Cons: "The Wi-Fi was not free and quite expensive. The space between seats was too narrow for my legs resulting in an uncomfortable journey. The entertainment was dated and not varied enough. The food was borderline unsavoury. The wines were cheap... Not an airline I would recommend to anyone."

Pros: "Super quick, comfy ride"
Cons: "Horrible food"

Cons: "Noisy children."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Pros: "Great customer care"

Cons: "Had to run to gate after two buses to reach correct terminal. Saw info that flight was closing. Held up at gate due to confusion with my boarding pass. Limited leg room on flight. End of flight huge queues at Dallas airport for security. After a long flight a passenger does not need to be corralled through excessively long winding lines."
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Food and drinks could be better"
Pros: "AA had fantastic service, no complaints"
Pros: "Good space in premium"
Cons: "Female cabin crew were aggressive, discourteous and frankly rude to the passengers when they had to verbally communicate. I hear this so often with American cabin crew. When I started to experience this I became aware of the same trend in regard communications with other passengers. Very unattractive."
Pros: "The smooth boarding process and the enterainment."

Pros: "The crew was very accomodating and the entertainment was nice"
Cons: "It is too crammed on this type of plane. Having three columns of three seats, four seats, and three seats is a bit too much. It seemed this type of plane is going for quantity instead of quality."

Pros: "New plane in the excellent condition. Leg room in economy not bad. Crew friendly and efficient. Boarding worked well."

Pros: "Air Canada is fantastic. Will never use air india."
Cons: "I liked everything about AirCanada and nothing about Airindia."
Pros: "Crew were good"
Cons: "Seats were too tight. Entertainment was mediocre"
Pros: "Air Canada is a respectable airline but the plane is not spacious at all. I mean, yes you pay for what you get, but damn the aircraft seats are so small. Then for people taking the morning flight, who probably haven’t eaten breakfast, you give them a measly omelet with a nasty side of spinach ? for the entire flight ? and a measly bag of pretzels ? Your starving the people which isn’t nice at all. Getting through baggage and getting in the flight was quite smooth and the air hosts were excellent. Entertainment was ok, there’s way to many Asian inspired films on there that I find are uninteresting, but hey, to each his own. Now coming back however was far better, the food was good, although can we stop putting soggy food into the mix, I know the food is premade but the mash potato is always so soggy and the vegetable mix has no flavour. Drinks are always great on the flight, entertainment was the same, hosts were great, pilot knows how to fly the plane, thank goodness, and overall it was a good flight back. Make the tiny adjustments I suggested and you’ll be at the top of your game Air Canada ! Merci !"
Cons: "I wasn’t able to check in online and therefore wasn’t able to update with my dietary requirements which meant I couldn’t really eat anything that was given. I was told at the airport that it needs to be submitted 24 hrs before the flight and there was nothing they could do. Really unfair and not on."
Pros: "The hot dinner was good"
Cons: "The pudding was poor, it was just a wrapped cookie. The movie selection was terrible! Most of the films were very old!"
Pros: "great service from start to finish would use again"
Pros: "its was smooth"
Pros: "Everything went very very well."
Cons: "High cost Toronto Airport meals and beverages."
Pros: "The food was delicious"
Cons: "Old movies. Nothing recent"
Pros: "Boarding was very well-organised ands clearly explained."
Cons: "USB socket broken and non-functioning. Plastic fork snapped and shed tines. A truly ghastly movie selection."
Cons: "Toronto international airport was very crowded. too many people , not enough facilities. You have to line up to do anything, even buy a bottle water."
Pros: "Liked everything about this new class of service on Air Canada. Seat was comfortable with good recline that didn't interfere with fellow passengers. Food was excellent, entertainment system was well stocked, flight attendants were friendly and high energy. Even got to use lounge and fast-track security lane at Heathrow."
Cons: "Zero complaints."
Cons: "They could have done the boarding different. There was a bit confusion about when to board."
Cons: "Why not board front to rear. It would save mega aisle clog during boarding!"
Cons: "flight was cancelled and I was offered a flight through Montreal with Long connections so I cancelled and flew the next day again through Montreal but with better connections"

Cons: "Nothing. There were no problems. The screen did lock when I tried to look at the map."
Pros: "Cleanliness, crew (in general)."
Cons: "Problems with entertainment system sound seem to be a recurring problem aboard aircrafts - the jacks seem to be in bad shape in most, whether for the provided eraphones or those brought on board."
Pros: "Getting through customs was very easy."
Cons: "The wine is awful ."
Pros: "Staff and food"
Cons: "We lost one of our bags"
Cons: "Horrible to say the least"
Pros: "Airbus 380"
Pros: "The flight crew seemed very helpful and friendly. The pasta meal was good."
Cons: "Too many people are allowed to bring too much carry-on baggage on board. I saw a family of 3 with 7 large bags using all of the overhead storage space on 2 sides of the aisle. Women were bringing on 2 carry on bags plus their huge, oversized purses. The limits should be strict and enforced- one bag, one personal item. Their selfishness causes problems for other passengers and the flight crew."
Cons: "Different treatment for persenger. Equal things should be treated equally."
Cons: "I found the seats a bit tight."
Pros: "I really liked how updated the plane was. The wine selection was very good. The entertainment had plenty of things to do - movies and TV shows were updated. I enjoyed the ice cream, that was a very nice treat!"
Cons: "I thought the food was not as good as the flight over to the UK - the mashed potatoes didn't look or taste like it had any real components at all and the bread was a little stale."
Pros: "Generally OK Food quite good, relatively"
Cons: "30 mins delay Cramped even for Economy"
Pros: "Space and meals"
Pros: "Crew tried hard"
Cons: "Boarding process chaotic. Seemed to be a new process that involved multiple checks and was not well organised. Entertainment system had not been loaded with the latest films and we're still from previous month."
Cons: "There were not that many movies to choose from. I expected several hundred. Only a few dozen."
Pros: "Every aspect of the flight was great."
Cons: "I have only marked food and comfort down due to my height (6ft 3), whilst more room than some aircraft, I was unable to get comfortable - not the airlines fault I can't fly premium or business class."
Pros: "I was very surprised to see the area where I was sitting roughly half full. Brilliant service by crew. Food was great as well which I was surprised at."
