Cons: Crew were all over the place (at Club Europe Cabin) and very unorganised. We went to galley few times to ask them to bring us drinks even thou they have taken our orders. They need more training to be at Club Europe Cabin. The seats should be more comfortable and should give people more leg rooms.
Pros: On time, standard flight for BA no frills airline.
Cons: Not the best organised inflight service,
Pros: new planes, good food, professional vrew
Pros: The flight was not busy.
Cons: Seat, Legroom.
Pros: Left on time and arrived early
Pros: Always like flying Swiss business class. Great service, good food and a great lie flat bed
Cons: Leg room was really bad in economy and the only upgrade option was to business for $10,000 so of course not affordable for the average person.
Pros: Seats were very comfortable
Cons: The boarding was a bit unorganized
Cons: This was a smooth as clockwork journey, the transit was easy and we were kept well informed about changes in the gate number
Pros: I’m so grateful for all the movies
Cons: Flight was delayed bc of Pakistan air space so I had to take 3 planes instead of 2
Cons: food screens
Pros: Nice plane, about the best in-seat entertainment options I've ever encountered.
Pros: After a bad experience checking in from Paris, the Ouagadougou part of the trip went well and the food was good, and a good entertainment system.
Cons: It was very cold inside the airplane. I have to ask multiple times for blanket.
Pros: Good schedules, good prices.
Cons: They think that a five-hour flight is "intra-European" so they assign tiny little planes with bad seats and cramped rows. Unacceptable.
Pros: Helpful crew. They reset the screen, came around with blankets, headphones and generally tried to make the space habitable.
Cons: When I am asked to book my seat, I am usually shown a map which has no reflection on the overall reality. The seat I select is normally allocated to me but if the plane is not full (unusual) I am told there are unavailable seats that would provide more choice.
Pros: The seats were wide tall and comfortable, there was enough room for the legs as well.
Cons: A little glass of juice would have been nice from the airline.
Cons: When we checked in, we were told we didn't have seats because the plane was overbooked. We waited at the gate for information. The attendants were curt and not helpful, they told us they had no information. After the plane was boarded, we were finally given tickets with seats and rushed onto the plane. When we arrived at the Sarajevo airport, our luggage and the luggage of many passengers did not arrive! We waited in a line for 1.5 hours to put in a claim for our suitcases. It was not a good experience.
Pros: Good experience, service was good, and attendants were courteous
Cons: Menu was poor
Pros: It was better with the earache, plane felt cleaner, the crew was more friendly and attentive. Didn't feel as dark as the first flight.
Cons: The Star Alliance flights aren't that cheap. Comparable price between Lufthansa, Swiss, SAS and Austrian. Lufthansa gives you food, and has friendly service. SAS gives you coffee and tea. On Austrian and Swiss I didn't get anything. For same price range and same alliance, that is a point I keep in mind. Now I mainly try to get onto Lufthansa flights (or Turkish Airlines which is my favorite). Even on Aegean, I got better food, and the magazine was better, plus there were some monitors to track the flight. Austrian feels cheaper than the others. That is the main point I didn't like.
Pros: On time and pleasant service .
Cons: The problem was outbound from Porto to Rome. Iberia lost 2 out of 3 bags and one took 24 hours to reach our Rome hotel and one took 48 hours to reach our Rome hotel.
Cons: Pedí que me manden la factura del vuelo y no me a llegado nunca.
Cons: The crew at flights run by Iberia were particularly unpleasant. Special those in the flight from Madrid to Miami. Ladies we’re particular rude and aggressive when talking to me and my daughters. Basically as if they were doing us a favor wile doing their work.
Cons: The seat was very uncomfortable. There were only two beverage services, at meal times, and the water pours were maybe 4oz. After 8 hours, I was pretty thirsty.
Pros: Thw crew were amezing, with a lot of patient. The entertainment was graet. The seats were graet.7;
Pros: Staff, ticket price
Cons: 6kg bags policy
Cons: 1h hour delay
Pros: service was great
Cons: plane left late
Pros: extra kind crew on board
Cons: stopover on Gran Canaria due to refuel - it cost me extra 30 GBP because of delay in Manchester
Cons: Didn't like having to climb stairs into plane with two hip replacements and luggage, and no assistance. The seats are tiny (and I'm a small person). The food was mediocre, passengers took their own food on board. The entertainment was pitiful for such a long flight. Very disappointed and probably will avoid Thomas Cook for future trips. Plus, It was very cold with constant cold air blowing on me; they provided no blankets, even though I requested one.
Cons: The seats are narrow whereby you are overlapping shoulders with the next person. Good leg room for short people. Food/beverage service is limited for a transatlantic flight. Outside of coffee, tea, and water, all beverages are at a cost and there is no snack (i.e., pretzels, nuts).
Pros: The flight was comfortable and the crew were helpful.
Cons: It would have been better not to stand long waiting to board.
Pros: It got me to Iceland!!! The crew was courteous when asked but really quiet otherwise.
Cons: Maybe because it was an over night flight, the crew was very quiet and for 9 hours, only offered refreshments twice, and food choices could have been better. And really no leg room, even for my short legs. Didn’t move my seat back for 9 hours cuz I could feel the knees of the person behind.
Pros: Crew was not pleasant and not greeting the passengers , but very supportive during the flight . Food for purchase only . Laggage is too expensive. Entertainment very old and not a lot to chose from. I was sitting in the emergency exit seat , that was very uncomfortable for my legs .
Cons: Smile, take less money for check in bags , food or at least snacks free.
Pros: Economy class OK for comfort. Staff very friendly and helpful. Had enough bathrooms for size of plane
Cons: Food choices did not have any salads except falafel.
Pros: Friendly staff
Cons: Security check at gate; No priority
Pros: KLM staff is great
Cons: I called for a crew member 5 times and waited 25 minutes for anyone to help me with just some water. I had to get up and go to the very back of the plane to ask for some water. The plane was hot and no air to be found. This was all after we had to get back off the plane before takeoff. It was terrib
Pros: Seating is tight. The crew was great !
Cons: As we landed we had to wait on the plane for an hour and a half because another plane (Spirit) was in our “parking spot.” This made it very difficult for people and connecting flights.
Pros: Seat space a bit tight . I should have upgraded to more leg room . Next time!
Pros: The crew
Cons: Seats! They were too small!
Pros: Crew was very nice and the food was excellent.
Pros: Very little
Cons: Flight was very crowded. Flight crew kept bumping into my seat and never apologized
Pros: Air France personnel is always really helpful
Cons: Food and comfort in short haul are not the best - but the flight is short...
Cons: I have never been in a situation were a flight has been delayed due to the co-pilot suffering a knee injury prior to take off. A request for a doctor on board after an hour or so and then having to leave the plane and then re-board after about 40 minutes was quite bizarre.
Pros: The seats were comfortable, and I like the large windows with the tinted glass.
Cons: The boarding procedure could be better organized. Also, I don't like the idea that even water has to be purchased with a credit card.
Cons: It would have been great if they didn’t wake up up an hour and a half before landing on a red eye, just to try to SELL US COFFEE AND SNACKS. Absurd. I’m unnecessarily tired, and still have 6 hours of travel today.
Cons: To be honest, at least a glass of water could be offered
Cons: Seat assignments is a problem for me to come to the airport early.
Cons: After having no issues with my carryon on my first Norwegian flight of the day, I was forced to pay 650 NoK to check my carryon as we were boarding my flight from Oslo to New York. This was just ridiculous because my bag fit in the overhead bins just fine and there we’re many empty overhead bins
Pros: Kindness of the staff, quick check in, wonderful healthy food, my seat and overall experience.
Cons: Limited controls on the entertainment.
Cons: Very bad food my options were pork and vegetarian. Chicken finished.
Pros: Everything! I never knew that Finnair was such a great airline.
Cons: Honestly, nothing could have been better.
Pros: Great flight and nice people
Cons: Because the flight was through british airways, extra baggage was $90 much more expensive than Finnair's prices. After paying that before departure to London I recieved an email from British Airways that stated an extra bag for both my flight to London and return flight to San Francisco had been fully paid for. At the airport I was told by British Airways employees that I would have to pay another $90 regardless of what my email said because their official prices are $90 each way not both. I showed them the confirmation I had recieved and all they could say was "that is confusing". There was very little empathy or attempt to help. As a result I was forced to leave the suitcase behind with my acquaintance in London and do an in airport shuffle of all of my belongings. The flight was great but beware emails that may not match up with online info.
Cons: 2 hr delay
Cons: Was refused to use the 1st clas restrooms but 10 minutes layer the flight attendant allowed an older gentleman and a lady to use them. I was in 10A with my service dog
Cons: Have rhe right to carry at least one luggage per person at no cost. Besides carry on and personal item. Tickets prices and luggage costs are extremely expensive.
Cons: Everything was excellent.
Pros: Actual flight
Cons: Could have done without the almost 5 hour delay and no good options for alternative flights. We got in at 3am and it ruined our trip as we were exhausted for my daughter’s college visits.
Pros: Considering the thousands of passengers who saw their flights cancelled because of the grounded 737 Max’s the fact that I was on hold for only 30 minutes and then got rerouted for the next day is amazing! Thank you Air Canada.
Cons: There was no coffee or tea available on the flight
Cons: The seat padding was a little worn.
Cons: Air Canada not even offering a snack on a 3 hour flight now. Ridiculous.
Pros: I was only a few minutes late and was not allowed to check in my bag or to board the flight.
Cons: They could have let me board!!
Pros: Great equipment. Decent entertainment, sparsely filled cabin. Seat change to isle request before boarding readily made with no fuss. I noticed that passengers could actually make out pa announcements both at PDX and in flight. Doesn’t bother me anymore when I can’t but can be very concerning to anyone who rarely flies. Never understood going to the trouble of making announcements both pre-boarding & on-board pre-flight, that no one can even make out. That was not an issue here.
Cons: Better lumbar support is always appreciated, adjustable lumbar would be very nice and could make or break an entire flight. No seat on any flight should ever be even the slightest ill repaired. Again, this equipmemt all seemed great. Lastly, since I prefer to always have a water, coke or coffe and or snack in front of me during entire flight, a bit of self serve (grab a water, coffee or snack yourself without having to make staff work a simple task would be nice on every flight. The flight from SEA-DUB was basically great and equipment is always of the utmost importantance.
Cons: No middle seat
Pros: No food no entertainment
Pros: Friendly people, plenty of food on the plane..
Pros: Flight crew was incredibly nice and professional. They were particularly attentive to another passenger that had food allergies. The seats were comfortable, with neck support and low back pillows. The over-intercom announcements were just enough to keep passengers aware of relevant info. There were lots of entertainment choices on the tv in the back of the seat. The first meal was really good (pasta). Thank you for a great flight.
Cons: The boarding gate was not announced until very close to boarding time and boarding seemed a bit of a free-for-all. The second meal/ 'hot snack' of a pizza pocket was gross.
Pros: aer lingus was good
Cons: seats are too small - but y'all know that!
Cons: BA cited computer glitch in London. Flights were severely delayed. Fortunately my connection was rebooked. Just minus 6 hours of my time.
Pros: There was sufficient too in seating. The crew brought water around several times during the flight.
Cons: There was no welcoming/comfort packet. That would be a small cost, but makes people feel tended. I left my sleep mask and in-flight socks because I expected British Air to provide those things as they have before. The snacks were insubstantial. No nuts, fruit, or cereal bars; only fluff. The "pizza" was tough. Not a good choice for microwaving.
Pros: Service was slow, but fine.
Cons: * Couldn't online check-in * Seat selection was not honoured * Plane model not as advertised * No entertainment on board
Pros: The food was great. The service is excellent. Swiss Air gets an A+.
Pros: There was an abundance of drink carts and dining options, snacks. Thank you!
Cons: Some of these planes need improved entertainment systems. Half did not work.
Cons: Poor desk service Food at breakfast A joke
Cons: Swiss precision
Pros: The service in the Business Class section on British Airways was phenomenal
Pros: Crew very pleasant, professional and friendly.
Cons: Tired and dated cabin; seats extremely uncomfortable causing severe back pain. In flight entertainment very old fashioned with small low resolution screens.
Cons: More latest movies in the inflight movies
Cons: Our baby has broken leg with plaster cast and Cathay didn’t deliver our stroller to Hongkong so we had to carry him on the hands whole afternoon...this was unpleasant experience...also when we arrived from HongKong to Denpasar Bali we found that one of our suitcases was damaged broken :/
