I have put 2 older passengers with knee problems. they have to go through the satires then what's the point of getting wheelchair???? you guys took $250 more on each tickets so the passengers can reach to their destination faster. but you ended up delaying the flights. and i asked around to many people after this and they told me that you always do it.

Pros: "Many movies to watch. There are news channels like CNN to keep you updated with what las happening in the world."

Pros: "The entertainment choice and availability of USB port for charging was excellent."
Cons: "This leg of both of our flights (going and return) was quite cramped. Due to an unfortunate delay on our return flight, our overall day was extended from ~8 hours to 16 hours, and had us flying through the night--very unexpected and tiring. Additionally, although we requested kosher meals well in advance, the delay/cancellation of our flights and rebooking effectively cancelled our kosher meals and there was nothing for us to eat. This was very frustrating."

Cons: "Just the fact that we were some 40 minutes late, and this created panic among those passengers who had tight connections to Tehran, Tel-Aviv and Tbilisi. The rest was excellent!"

"Never booked this flight"
Cons: "I had paid for an upgrade to sit in the front of the cabin with extra legroom (row 14A). When I boarded a man sat it my seat. He had not paid for the upgrade, but the crew let him stay in my seat. I had asked him to social distance but he continued to sit right behind me bo matter which seat I moved to. He argued with the crew until they gave up and let him stay. They did not check his boarding pass or ask him to move to his assigned seat I found a different seat away from him but I don’t see the point in paying for extra legroom when the crew let’s people who haven’t paid for it sit it those seats. I felt harassed by the man and was very uncomfortable the whole flight. I am considering my next step, I think I should at least receive a refund for the upgrade I paid for."

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.

Pros: "Flight unpleasant. Ground staff in Marseiile great but gate crew didn't control carry on baggage and many of us could not use overhead bins because of passengers who stowed more than one and often oversized suitcases above, so we and many others had to place carry on suitcases under seat. Attendant on plane totally unhelpful and could have rearranged a few bags to make room but preferred to stay in back of plane and talk. To be fair, rest of flight was pleasant although late due in part to boarding issues."
Cons: "Carry on baggage issues and storage on plane. One aloof and unhelpful member of flight crew."

Cons: "The headphone jack didn’t work so no entertainment system. 45 minute wait for luggage at SVO which is becoming much more common with Aeroflot. And it is their airport. They have control over this problem!"
Pros: "The food (two full meals) and amenities provided by Aeroflot was wonderful. Staff was helpful on the flight and provided us with plenty of drinks."
Cons: "We boarded the plane at the time the flight was supposed to depart without explanation as to why there was a delay. Then we sat on the plane for two hours without explanation again. Landed 45 minutes after the originally planned time. Our connecting flight to athens was going to depart in 15 minutes, but left us and 58 other passengers. Poor communication to the passengers and then poor communication or help from the airline. If they would’ve waited 15 minutes, 60 people could’ve made their connection. Instead we have to wait 6-7 hours to board another flight. The customer service at the Moscow airport was sad... only two people at the desk for 60+ customers needing new flights because of their unexplained late departure."
Cons: "Laggage didnt arrive with us. We have to wait in Minsk God know how long to get our laggage."

Pros: "Crew kept the bathrooms tidy"
Cons: "USB port (for charging) was not working. The connector inside was destroyed. Light was not working. Crew member refused to serve the coffee saying that the plane was going thru turbulence which was not quite true. There was no vegetarian option as far as meals were concerned. He did not even offer fruits as substitute. One of the crew member did not seem friendly at all. rather grumpy at times. Most of them do not speak decent English so it is hard to communicate with them anyways."
Cons: "Asked them bot to sit us at the far end near the toilets and guess what.....last tier next to the toilets!! Broke my son’s bugaboo bee pushchair 2nd time due to the way they handle it as they through them instead of caring for them. Service in moscow is very poor."
Pros: "good hearty snack"
Cons: "Terrible registration process - was not registered through to my final destination and was made to pick up and check in again bags at my connection - Frankfurt. Barely made it on time. The person registrating me was unhelpful and rude claiming that since the first flight was operated by Aeroflot Dhe can’t register me through.

Pros: "Friendly flight attendants, comfortable seats, good refreshments and meal. I fell asleep early in the flight and woke as the crew was cleaning up from the meal service. I asked if I could have a meal and yes, they would prepare one for me. Very gracious. I also had a problem that my luggage transferring from another airline in London, with a very short layover, did not make my flight. Aeroflot personnel at SVO Moscow took care of this and my luggage was delivered the next day in perfect shape."
Pros: "they provided juice or water every 30 mins. food was ok"
Cons: "The entertainment was not working for the entire flight. not much vegetarian options"

It's free if you have a Russian mobile number, but if not they only option is to find a local and ask that they register for you with their own number."

Cons: "There wasn't much to complain about."
Pros: "In-flight service was pleasant."
Cons: "The boarding at the Heathrow Airport was a bit chaotic, due to the incompetence of the so-called manager who had no ability in simple crowd management. Fortunately, some female flight attendant who did the boarding had some common sense and helped ease the situation. Sack that male manager who was so unpleasant and incompetent."
Pros: "Nothing extra ordinary"
Cons: "That was my first flight and the entertainment video did not work I also will like to see a situation where I can drop my luggage and be checked in on the day of flight no matter the flight time I drove all night to Heathrow from Manchester and arrived at check in countrer at 8am and was refused check in until 11.30 for a 1:45pm flight so I was not able to go and sleep somewhere as I planner .

Pros: "I liked that the plane was clean and the service friendly. I liked the personal screens for entertainment and the selection of movies was good."

Cons: "One kind of ice-cream only !! Why only Vanilla ? Should have at least 2 different, to choose from."
Cons: "Whoever designed and built this airplane should literally be INDICTED - AND I AM NOT KIDDING! We were in disbelief the moment we boarded and saw the airplane. 10 people across jammed into the row??!! - and on an long international flight?? - are you kidding??!! Further, these were the SMALLEST seats I have EVER been forced to sit in. Neither I, or my friend came close to fitting. We literally had to alternate getting up and standing because we were literally overlapping each other when we sat! (His shoulder and arm were literally on top of me!!). It was so bad that when the stewardess came rolling down the aisle with her cart, I had to be aware and see her in advance so I could literally TURN MY BODY OVER TO THE LEFT HALF ON TOP OF THE PERSON SITTING NEXT TO ME SO SHE WOULDN'T TAKE OFF MY ARM AND SHOULDER. ULTIMATELY, SOMEONE, OR MORE THAN ONE PERSON, IS GOING TO GET SERIOUSLY HURT BY THIS RECKLESS, GREED-DRIVEN DESIGN!! The OVERT GREED by the airline (American) clearly reflected by this in trying to JAM as many human beings into a flight as possible like Sardines is DISGUSTING!!! You simply DO NOT TREAT HUMAN BEINGS THIS WAY!! It is also clear evidence that there needs to be tighter standards, regulations and penalties by the FAA and what is allowed by airlines. AND I AM SENDING A LETTER TO THE FAA!!!"
Pros: "The crew did an excellent job definitely went beyond good service, I enjoyed the food and they came often offering drinks. It was probabky my first long flight I wasn't thirsty at all. Overall I was very happy with my trip hope thank you!"
Cons: "I got slightly cold at one point and wished the lights were I little lower but I understand why the weren't."
Pros: "This flight was co-shared by British airways. After our horrible flight from San Diego to London, we decided to upgrade our returning flight from London to San Diego to a economy plus premier. This time the plane seems newer and recently refurbished. The seat can recline more, with lump bar support and nice foot/leg rest. It has a bit more legroom. The cabin is nice and new with large view touchscreen TV for each seat. Gluten free meal was good, I'm just glad they finally boarded the plane with my GF meal (after repeated unsuccessful attempts). The service was great, our BA attendants were polite and attentive."
Pros: "the crew were very friendly, well organized. movie selection was great. meals were surprisingly good and plentyful"
Cons: "not enough leg room. and i have to point out that I am a petite 110 lbs, 5'2" woman. as soon as the person in front of me reclined their seat to either sleep or lounge, I had my food tray on my chest and the small tv screen 8 inches away from my nose. Thankfully Im small but the man sitting next to me was rather tall and had to turn into a human pretzel to fit in that seat and space allotted."
Pros: "The flight was great...the staff are wonderful people...they are so sweet and kind...they work so hard...the service was great...I love their personalities..The Movie selection was awesome...Because of my broken leg, they were there to help me right away...amazing crew...will be flying with them again in October....looking forward to flying with British Airways again... Thank you for the care... Yours Truly, Sylvia Smith..."
Cons: "I have no complaints at all...."
Cons: "No TSA pre check"
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."
Pros: "I loved the service. The flight attendants were attentive and courteous. They walked through the cabin periodically to offer water in the 6 hours or so between meal services, and also had self-service drinks and snacks in the galley during that time. Flight attendants asked passengers to put their seats forward during meal times, which very few airlines do. It was the same level of service I have come to expect from the Asian carriers that I usually fly (ANA, Japan Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Singapore). The meals were fine, and so was the entertainment. There was a decent choice of movies."
Cons: "The economy seats were narrow and cramped on the A340. I was in the first row of economy that wasn't premium economy. Even though the person in front of me had loads more legroom than me, he had his seat all the way back for almost the entire flight and hit me in the head while I was reaching for my bag under the seat in front of me. In order to get to anything in my bag, I had to put my head into the aisle because there wasn't enough room to bend down. Because of the angle of the seats, it was nearly impossible to get into and out of the row (and I was on the aisle)."
Pros: "It was a British Airways flight, plane was large, and felt more roomy than what I'm used to. The service was impeccable."
Pros: "Staff as always is polite"
Cons: "The man sitting next to me required two seats. The arm rested had to be lifted to my seat to accommodate him. I complained but the flight was full and my seat could not be changed. I was told that British Air policy was not to require extraordinary over weight people to buy two seats. No, instead the person next to that overweight person has to suffer. A very stupid and unfair policy. As a result I will never book Finnair or British Air again if I can avoid it."
Pros: "I did get to move away from complaining passengers but "lost my coat" in the process. People are awful and obnoxious"
Cons: "Who doesn't turn off the plane lights at night inside the cabin? Especially when you're feeling late at night? Didn't post gate until very last minute…LHR..Then it said boarding immediately. Nowhere to get water. Hurriedly Boarded plane to find out we have the sit there an hour. Girl next to me was so childish Loud mouth complaining because she couldn't sit next to her bf."
Cons: "We were unable to find a row of seats to more comfortably facilitate traveling with a baby and a toddler as seats that should have had a cot or extra seating didn't have the cot and were sold out for an additional fee before we had the chance to. Discussing this with the staff at check0in and at the gate, made no difference as they had no knowledge of what was available on that particular flight. Every time I fly with American I'm reminded of why I don't like the airline and I will do my best to avoid them moving forward regardless of competitive ticket pricing."
Pros: "Crew were friendly, helpful and efficient Entertainment was very good, especially on outgoing flight"
Cons: "Broken a/c on one flight, sweating buckets No leg room at all on outgoing 747 Disgusting smelly BO passenger on return flight"
Pros: "Crew staff pleasant although did not particularly take the initiative to help customers."
Cons: "Boarding process at Heathrow was chaotic. Could not hear announcements and the response was a large crowd pushing towards an unclear entrance point. The seats are quite small and recline a minimal amount My biggest complaint is that four of us traveling together could not be seated in close proximity to each other, despite making that request over four months before the flight. Extremely frustrating to deal with check-in process as well--because we booked on Finnair, we could not use online system. This was an aggravation considering we were traveling. And--one of our bags was left behind in London. \"
Pros: "The more modern plane with USB ports that actually charge and the higher quality and bigger displays really help make the trip more enjoyable."
Cons: "Not as much to eat on this BA flight back to Philidelphia from Hethrow as there was on the American Airlines flight there."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient. Flight crew was polite, helpful and friendly. Had adequate leg room in coach, added plus was the flight was not crowded so did not have anyone sitting next to me. Did not feel squashed and claustrophobic as a result. Food was satisfactory."
Cons: "Was inadequately fed on the Houston to London leg. Got nothing but a nightcap. The following morning I received a cold, stale croissant as part of a lunch box for a preschooler, nothing warm, no protein after 8 hrs in flight. I could not check in online."
Pros: "Polite and helpful crew and great entertainment systems."
Pros: "It's a direct flight, it runs on time, the staff on the ground and on the flight are professional, courteous, and helpful. If you are lucky enough to have an empty seat next to you, the seating is quite comfortable, with adequate foot and stretching room."
Cons: "For in-flight entertainment, the ceiling-mounted screens along the aisle are hard to see and offer no choices for viewing. The food, as usual, was poor. I ordered vegetarian meals, and on the return trip for both meals was given the same soggy pasta with tomato sauce--no protein (why not add a few chickpeas or white beans?)."
Pros: "The service was remarkable. Everyone was very attentive and friendly which is exactly what you would want for a long flight. The crew came around frequently to provide beverages and left you alone to sleep."
Cons: "The boarding process was a bit hectic. The flight was full which I completely understand. After everyone was settled in the plane it took another 25 minutes to leave the runway."
Pros: "Friendly flight crew made me feel very welcome . Food and drinks service was excellent, nice choices. Movie selection was vast."
Pros: "it was fine"
Pros: "Flight operated by BA; food was excellent, wine was free, crew were friendly."
Cons: "Legroom so cramped its dangerous; worse than on my CRJ connecting flight."
Cons: "My Finnair flight from London to New York was cancelled due to weather conditions in New York. I understand that. What made me very frustrated and angry is that when I contacted Finnair to reschedule the flight I was told the flight was managed by British Airways and I would have to contact them When I contacted British Airways they said it was a Finnair flight and I had to contact them. I finally had no recourse but to buy another ticket through another airline. I feel that I should be reimbursed for my Finnair ticket from London to New York! I paid for a flight I never took. (The Finnair flight from New York to London was fine.)"
Pros: "Crew politeness"
Cons: "Food is only average and not enough good movies to watch"
Pros: "I made it home safe"
Cons: "Little legroom for such a long flight. Too crowded."
Cons: "I booked this trip thinking it was with a European carrier - I had specifically wanted to avoid an American carrier. I was unable to confirm my flight online and had to ring because at NO POINT was I sent info that it was AA and not Finnair. I was charge almost $60 for this service because I did not have the right references sent with my confirmation email. T he seats were cramped and uncomfortable, I was unable to pick my seat on any flight and despite my request could not change it. Boarding at Chicago was a farce, none of the ground crew seemed to be in charge and we barely started boarding with 20 mins to takeoff. Needless to say the flight left late and we had to wait to take off, and of course had to wait to land in London."
Cons: "experience was awful. Helen Rowena Boysen"
Cons: "Was not able to check in online on either leg."
Pros: "The food and entertainment were good."
Cons: "This flight was operated by British Airways. The flight attendants on this flight were very rude and the plane was not as comfortable as the they Finnair plane."
Pros: "I took the bus back and forth from SF to London. Overseas I am now in contemplation of only flying British Airways from now on. The ride is comfortable, enjoyable, entertaining, adequate space, excellent service, food and drinks are the best I have had, and exceptional services and attention. This goes for both flights. I have been recommending Britsh Airways over the last several weeks to pretty much everyone I know. My family and I will be looking to British Airways for overseas flights as a priority."
Cons: "Connecting flight thru Heathrow was too close for comfort. I just reached the gate at the end of boarding. If there had been a glitch at all I would have missed the flight."
Pros: "Great flight, crew was very nice. I would rebook with British airways."
Pros: "Great crew-service was prompt"
Cons: "Food was served an hour after we took off and we got a snack 7 hours later!! You'd think that on a 9 hour flight, there would be two full meals. Also, entertainment system was tiny (4" screen) and colors were washed out with brightness/contrast so bad, you couldn't see anything at all. Seats were cramped-I took an Emirates flight from London to Bangalore-what a world of difference!!!! Never flying BA again, that's for sure."
Pros: "Short good flight, with no issues. Friendly crew that were very professional."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Flight was not full Nice clean 777-300 Better food service than in the past ... more snack service With Global Entry, I was off the plane and in a car in less than 20 minutes"
"The cabin crew was friendly. But boarding takes forever and the flight gad long delays on both inbound and outbound flight"
"Could not hear announcements from staff. Luggage in hold was delayed on both legs of trip."
Pros: "Feel like reacist Company"
Cons: "I didnt like the treatment of the crew."
Pros: "Clean plane , good crew ,"
Cons: "they didn't load my baggage from flight 1 to 2"
Cons: "Boarding was a disaster as my companion was selected for random search which held us up as there was no urgency to process us. Then there was no sign for where we should go since upper deck on 747 so we went in "economy" line as indicated on ticket and then was sent to correct line when we got to the front, wasting more time. The seatrs were the most uncomfortable I have ever beeon on for a long flight. I also paid extra to be in the exit row, to have people constantly congregating in front of us.The food was also mediocre."
Pros: "The rest area"
Cons: "The airport was cold and it should be warmer"
Pros: "Great and friendly crew"
Cons: "In-flight system had some problems and seats seemed a bit uncomfortable"
Cons: "Delay in take off 45 min!!!!"
Cons: "The entertainment system was very old with minimum selection. My entertainment system actually stopped working. The seating area was very cramped. I called for service a couple of times from my seat, but nobody came."
Cons: "They have a terrible communication problem, they never communicated why the flight was late, they never communicated what they were doing or what was happening. Bad customer service. Bad communication with the client. They told us when I asked several times that we would not lose our connection and that everything was fine and that was not the case. We lost the connection. No one told us anything. Another problem was that the girl in the boarding process removed the suitcases tickets from the boarding pass and did not want to return them, and held it without any cause. The flight staff went looking for us. Pretty sad and disappointed by their service. I understand that they were causes outside the airline but must communicate to the client. They cannot remain silent and say nothing."
Pros: "The gentleman at the check out his name was Omar went over and above the call of duty for Customer Service me being an American he walked me through each step of using flybe via air France and paying for checking my bags and even the carry on luggage and getting me through security etc."

Cons: "Entertainment very limited. No adjustable air vents in this aircraft"
Pros: "The bread was fresh and food better than other times"
Cons: "Crew is always aggressive and unfriendly"
Pros: "The seat was very comfortable."
Cons: "My boyfriend and I were required to gate check our carry-on luggage which required us to go through customs in Paris to get to our bag and re-enter security for our connecting international flight. I am unsure why this was the case as other passengers brought the same size luggage. Very upsetting."
Pros: "Crew was good, seat was not, it was freezing cold and one little blanket was inadequate!"
Cons: "Provide another blanket when needed, was wearing shorts and a short sleeve shirt."
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "Couldn’t understand announcements"
Cons: "There was no entertainment and the food could be better"
Pros: "The cue lines per zone are the most brilliant idea!"
Cons: "After boarding began there was a backup after the gate en route to the plane. No explanation. The plane left an hour later than scheduled but seemed to arrive close to scheduled time."
Cons: "Not to be late ,and not to loose my luggege"
Pros: "Crew and food were great."
Cons: "Old plane. Seats were super tiny and uncomfortable. Couldn’t sit in the same spot for longer than 15 min without getting sore."
Cons: "Not really an Air France flight, AF not interested in taking care of their frequent fliers."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and the food was excellent"
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Food was good and tasty."
Cons: "Plane seemed a little worn, which surprised me since it was an A380. Not that old. I had purchased an upgrade to a seat with more legroom, only to find out there was no USB plug for charging my phone. All standard seats have them. Would have been nice to be warned about that."
Cons: "wine selection divider between seats"
Pros: "The staff were very helpful and professional."
Cons: "The food was awful and the option I wanted had run out. The entertainment was faulty and had to be reset several times. The comfort was below standard and needs to be improved."
Pros: "No extra charge for simple refreshments."
Pros: "Quick and efficient not lying more to say or critique."
Cons: "Coffee and a bread roll as a snack??"
Pros: "Not much expected as it was a budget trip."
Cons: "Poor timing in between connections, barely made in time to my first connection being the last person to board"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Told us to get in line for boarding and review our tickets and then made us stand there for 75 minutes before boarding."
Pros: "From the boarding, to the friendly hostesses to the food and the business class seat, I was impressed all the way. My first time to fly Air France business to the US and it was great. I recommend it!"
Cons: "I just expected better toilet bag for business but what was given out was just basic."
Pros: "Absolutely everything perfect."
Cons: "Through my own fault I ordered a different seat instead of window seat. :)"
Pros: "I like the service. They caring and give snacks, comfort and overall"
Cons: "None. I like everything"
Cons: "CDG is a monster. The distances are long . The signage is poor and when I asked for directions the diirections I got were wrong."
Pros: "Sometimes you get surprised, with this specific flight, we had an excellent young and perfect cabin crew. Thanks, Joon!"
Pros: "Everything was very prefect and would love to fly again."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Food could be a bit better. White bread is unhealthy."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable with good recline. Food was good, but not excellent."
Cons: "They forgot the snack/breakfast service for the front right section of economy then had to rush it. Overall, the service was good, but some things just seemed off. An attendant call was never answered, etc."
Cons: "The flight arrived late with no clear explanation as to why. Then there was no EU queue at immigration, so more time wasted."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, but the sliding action, instead of recline, took getting used to. Food was very good. Snacks available on demand, along with drinks. Complimentary wine with meal was also quite good. Entertainment system was first rate with plenty of options for TV. movies, music, games, etc..."
Cons: "Sitting in the middle two seats in the center of the 777 left me stuck for most of the flight. Got up only once. Wife's feet and ankles were swollen by the end of the flight. Not enough legroom to move much during the flight and not enough aisle space to get around with the plane so full. Have made flights twice as long on the 747 and were able to get up and walk."
Pros: "tool me safe from one airport to another"
Cons: "wait time, food"
Pros: "Free drinks and snack!"
Pros: "Panamá airport is a disaster, unorganized and dirty"
Cons: "Panamá airport"
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Too many business class seats and the plane is so big it basically feels like flying on coach. You have two seats next to the window so it's exactly the same when trying to get up than in economy class with a passenger stuck next to you"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Not enough room for legs. Small amounts of food. No entertainment."
Pros: "Croissants instead of pretzels was a nice change of snack"
Cons: "Computer failure rendered the check in process a total mess. Staff seemed utterly at a loss and also totally unprepared for this very early and very full flight. Most passengers seemed to have multiple bags to check. Since this is a regular flight it was hard to understand why check in staff wandered in late when time was already tight - let alone having a system failure as well to deal with. We were 50 minutes late leaving. This resulted in many of us either missing or having extremely tight (stressful) connections at CDG Paris."
