Didn’t announce reason for delay. Staff was vague about departure time. Flight crew could have asked if we need help in figuring out the controls and adjustments. Staff needs to be more helpful

Take off and landing the smoothest I have ever experienced,. The crew were awesome and their overall services excellent.

I request for vegetarian food but they are asking me what kind of food you want. Service is slow.

More Bollywood and Telugu movies, food options

Horrible experience at JKIA. Basic courtesy was lacking. Only the lady supervisor was pleasant and reasonable but it was too little too late for us.

Could t check in online

Wheel chair arrangements was not unorganized & poorly executed at Doha Airport

Pros: "Fantastic flight...Qatar’s QSuites are fantastic, very comfortable, Amazon my service from the crew, fantastic entertainment options, and with the privacy of the suite ...very close to first class...in fact it is better than the first products (from a seat perspective) of many other airlines such as United, Delta, Virgin, BA, etc."
Cons: "I wish there were more vegetarian options on the menu"
Cons: "Internet kept cutting off despite me paying."
Cons: "I used Qatar airways 3 times so far. In the last flight, were a connection has 8 hours between 2 flights, they deny me to stay in a hotel. The last 2 flights which have exactly the same schedule, I used the hotel in that 8 hours between the 2 flights. I asked why, they told me that my ticket is not eligible to the hotel, although, I bought the last two times from Kayak, with almost same price. My first flight with Qatar Airways was on July 2017. My second flight with Qatar Airways was on August 2017. My third flight with Qatar Airways was on Jan 208."
Pros: "The flight attendants waited for me at the gate since customs was backed up. They saw me running and told me it was ok. On the flight, snacks and drinks were bright by every hour or so and the meals were plenty of food and tasted good. I was given a bag with eye cover, earplugs, socks, face wipes and ear phones. Entertainment was good as well. Qatar is an amazing airline. Wish we had something like this in the States!"

Pros: "I really enjoyed the flight, which was almost 15 hours long. I give an overall 4 star review for this flight. The boarding process was pretty organized (without including the ignorant passengers who can't read their zone numbers, haha) because they called us up group by group, in a speedy process. Even inside, the cabin crew welcomed us aboard and showed us where our seats are. This leads me to my 5-star rating of the service. Very warm, friendly, and generally helpful cabin crew Qatar Airways has. They fulfilled all my needs even if they had to go out of their way. As for entertainment, I was very surprised at how many great movies they have! Especially the new ones! I would not be bored again with this selection. Food was okay to be honest. It was a hot meal that satisfied my hunger and tasted good, but maybe it's just me and airplane food. Doesn't taste right for me. And to be honest, I was cramped. Not even me but many other passengers felt like the seats were too small. Overall, Good experience!"

All staff very friendly and accommodating

Pros: "A330 plane. I love widebodies"
Cons: "Be ontime"
Pros: "Pilots. Flight attendants. Space. Left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Well if my future father in law was on the flight it would have been wonderful, but he passed away July 7th, and I did get refunded, and we are mourning his loss and keep getting notifications about the flight and emails which makes it very difficult mentally. So it would be nice if Delta would get their process of refunds especially when it's a death to maybe not get notified. I was the one that purchased the tickets for him in April."
Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "Seats are more narrow than other airlines."
Cons: "To be on time"
Cons: "Food."
Pros: "Very engaging crew."
Cons: "Waiting 45 minutes, and 30 minutes after flight time for a few bags. They could have traveled on the next flight and arrived at almost the same time."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Letting me board the plane even through boarding had started and I wasn’t first because of my disability"
Pros: "We left an overcoat on the plane after the long flight and did not realize our area until we were in the baggage claim area. The Delta agent in Paris was most helpful. He went above and beyond to retrieve our coat. Good job Delta!"

Cons: "Seats not roomy enough"
Pros: "That I got to my destination safely, and my luggage wasn't lost"
Cons: "The seats are so uncomfortable, and trying to sleep on the flight was nearly impossible."
Pros: "First Delta experience in many years. Overall positive but not spectacular. A350 has suite doors, nice and private."
Cons: "Crew is not flexible with on-demand dining. Not sure if this was this specific crew member who couldn't be bothered or if Delta is behind other long haul airlines on this. Lay flat business class seat on A350 are very firm. a mattress pad would have made the flight much more comfortable."
Cons: "Left 30 minutes late from SLC."
Cons: "Missed my flight do to TSA security my wife is diabetic this TSA agents/idiots looked like they newer seen insulin pump or insulin bottle and flight left 15 min early. So I'm in Tampa trying to get flight in morning to Cancun"
Pros: "On Time. Nothing else to say,"
Pros: "Ended up with earlyish boarding and exit row legroom."
Cons: "Online check-in was an ultimately unsuccessful confusing nightmare. Having either a codeshare flight or a passenger with a new passport would probably have been enough to break the online check-in system, and we had both. Straightened out in the airport, but required waiting in a long line where late arrivals for flights an bhour before ours were given priority. Frustrating not to have a seat assignment until boarding had already begin (would have gone SWA if we wanted that mess)."
Cons: "The monitors kept on freezing"
Pros: "Cannot. Figure out how to use the wifi."
Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "I used the call button for the attendant and no one came for a long time"
Pros: "Gate agent was fantastic! Her positive demeanor made for the delays and cancellations to not seem as much of an issue. She was extremely pleasant when explaining what was happening to flights, connections, etc. She was helpful when checking boarding passes to ensure that travellers were ok for their flight."
Cons: "Again, last minute notification of delayed or cancelled flights made things somewhat worrisome. The late notification led to me missing my nest connection in Minneapolis, and having to sleep in the airport until the following morning in order to transfer my ticket to another flight leaving in the morning/afternoon/evening...very nerve-wracking to say the least."
Pros: "The flight was on time and not over booked."
Cons: "The seating was cramped. There were mediocre snacks, but no food or entertainment."
Pros: "What an easy flight. Run very well!"
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit tired, but it’s the season"
Cons: "Due to the earthquakes, the film festival I was going to was cancelled. Ten days prior to the flight I called AeroMexico to cancel and they said there would be a cancellation penalty, which was fine. When I tried to redeem my credit, they said there was also an additional "No-show fee" even though I called to cancel 10 days prior, which left a total of $70 credit after all their penalties. I called and emailed to complain but they did nothing but pass me to someone else who was equally unhelpful. I will never fly AeroMexico for any reason in the future."
Cons: "We purchased food. Bread was stale, and fell apart in your hands."
Pros: "Great service from the attendents and awesome movie selection"

Pros: "On time departure and arrival, clean plane. Enough space for your carry on."
Cons: "Despite having 15 open seats on the earlier flight, I needed to pay $75/person to take the earlier flight. I chose not to do this. Would I have loved to get home 2 hours earlier."
Pros: "Complimentary meal and entertainment, very good service from flight attendants."
Cons: "Seat 43B?! I checked in 12+ hours in advance."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "3.5 hour delay due to lack of co-pilot. No consessions for delay when asked at gate. Lack of leg room. Broken tv, I asked twice to be fix nothing was ever done."

Pros: "Comfortable aircraft with tv in the seats"
Cons: "Huge delay on my flight and most other flights from LaGuardia that day, lack of information on reasons for the delays ."

Cons: "I have ordered Wheelchair for my parents which one of my parent didn't get it on Mumbai Airport. When they arrived on Amsterdam Netherlands Airport they were dropped to the gate assigned first and once the gate changed on the fly no body came to help them moving to the new gate assigned which was far away to walk. Nobody even came to tell them that the gate has been changed. It was because of my father's alertness they didn't miss the connecting flight and when my father asked help to members on airport none of them helped my parents and other 4 co passengers which also were on wheel chairs. It was so scary experience for them that they asked me not to book any more flights with Jet Airways. I won't recommend Jet Airways to any of my friends for their parents to travel to USA. I strongly recommend you guys to take a strict action against this. This is so unacceptable."

Pros: "Decent meal (warm Pasta all'arrabbiata), nice little muffin for dessert and standard drinks (coffee & tea were a bonus, as they didn't serve any on a similar flight, from Barcelona to Amsterdam), friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "Poor timing - no reason for a 40 minute delay at take off (plane was fully boarded in time) Old aircraft, shabby, dirty and cramped seats. Coming from my connecting flight from Barcelona, I could clearly tell the different in the quality (and cleanliness) of the aircrafts."

Cons: "KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Also, really tired of the fake business class on these flights..."
Pros: "Wider seat than most business class"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"
Pros: "The very dirty plane was cleaned at Dar-es-salaam and became less dirty. The pilot kept us updated periodically through the flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "The plane was very dirty when we landed in Dar-es-salaam. The plane did get cleaned a little bit in Dar-es-salaam however I was still missing a pillow and blanket which I had to actively seek out. Seating was not very comfortable as there was a box attached to the leg of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to keep my feet at an uncomfortable angle through the long flight. I did not enjoy the food."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Only one queue for boarding. Flight late on arrival."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Flight delayed, had to take two more flights and was a four hour trip turned into a 12 hour, 4 countries trip"
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient."
Cons: "Limited movie selection. Crew seemed stressed. Gave me wrong meal and then swaped for the right one. I asked for Diet Coke and was given white wine. Food quality was not good."

Pros: "Quick and efficient flight. Crew very organized. Great language skills"
Pros: "Much more civilised for the same cost (or less) as the budget carriers. Proper food and drinks included as is the norm with international flights even though it's a very short haul."

Pros: "Delays and no proper customer service."
Pros: "Fine as delta flights go"

The staff were excellent, very helpful and efficient

Got passed over during the first drink service. Second service was more agreeable. Passengers are allowed to prop their feet up on the backs of the seats in front of them and to play their devices without headphones so everyone has to listen to it?For 4 hours. Why does this go unchecked? Is the comfort of a single passenger more important than all the others? I normally have nothing but good things to say about Air France but they missed the mark today by a wide margin.

Nice,elegant,smooth,team had a pride with their work. My Favorite Airline.

Pros: "The crew was perfect"
Cons: "No wi fi on the plane."
Pros: "I've never been on a flight with such narrow seat and thin cushion. There was no entertainment offered for the almost 4 hour flight. There was no means of charging any electronic gears.

Pros: "Bag was sent straight to NY although Norwegian screwed it up. Am yet to receive my luggage."
Cons: "Train your ground crew. Our luggage was not placed on our flight from Paris to Amsterdam and were sent to Amsterdam on separate planes. My husband’s medication was in his bag. This was a great inconvenience for us. Never again on Air Canada. I suggest you explore the baggage process used by Delta."
Pros: "I really liked my seat, but it was one of the only ones that didn't have a USB port."
Cons: "See above. Overall, very nice experience."
Cons: "Placed in last row w/ non-reclining seats, even though bought tix 7 months early. We travel w/ only carry-on bags. AF allows 35 kg each but only 12 kg in cabin.

Cons: "The flight delayed for 2xhours from Paris to Cincinnati"
Cons: "boarding wasn't good."
Cons: "Great experience"
Pros: "The gate reps from CDG to MSP were professionals. The cabin crew on the Delta flight were exceptional! This was not my experience in Copenhagen with the Air France staff, they seemed to be self centered and rude."
Cons: "Delta please make excellence a priority in all areas of customer service. Set high standards for staff so customers know that you appreciate them and are ready for business. The world is at the customer's fingertips, let their first choice be Delta. When their are bad days, customers will understand"

Cons: "The seat padding is rather thin."
Pros: "Good selection of movies"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "The usual Air France flights to Rome, that I have been flying for years, are now operated by Joon. For a couple months nothing changed, except the way the crew dressed.

Cons: "My luggage was lost in Paris. Now I need to wait still."
Cons: "Leg space."
Pros: "Food has improved a lot on business class. Meals are more creative."
Cons: "Water bottles not given out unless ou ask for it. Crew needs to better trained with how to handle business class..."

Cons: "I don’t know why they keep making boarding with stairs and bus."
Pros: "Average"

Queued for nearly two hours before some airport employee gave us instructions to travel by train without any other information or tickets etc. Had to buy my ticket. Couldn’t recuperate my suitcase. Had to wait for it the next day for three hours. Up to this hour I don’t know how I am going to be reimbursed (train and plane)."

Pros: "Courteous crew"
Pros: "The service"

Pros: "the food"
Cons: "no room for legs"
Pros: "Leg room is bigger than average, there is also a foot step which helps you to relax."
Cons: "There must be lice on the plane, either from the customer or on the seats. Got bitten 6 times on the leg and butt!!! And this is not the first time hearing same story, Air France definitely needs to disinfect the plane more thoroughly. Media center is outdated, touch screen isn’t working well, felt being punched in head every time when ppl behind you tries to touch the screen!"

Cons: "Airport experience at cdg was atrocious. Took more than an hour to check in and it was a complete zoo."

Horrible ground staff. Flight delays. Multiple security checkpoints which were utterly pointless. Everyone seemed frustrated and no one seemed to want to help. Half the plane came empty because a lot of people couldn’t make their connecting flight. Thanks to ground crew.

Timing,Organizing,Information,knowledgeable Staff,Engaged Supervisor.

Didn't like anything if I'm honest No in flight entertainment No food or drinks Apart from a complementary small bottle of water and cereal bar Seats not very comfy Will stick with Turkish Airlines from now on There a lot better

Canceled our flight and didn’t notify us Terrible customer service

Cons: "Everything needed to have been better, especially communication. I wasn't informed flight time changed, then wasn't informed UK rules wouldn't allow me to fly to USA via London until I gotvyo airport. Was rerouted on another airline and won't get home until 48 hours than originally scheduled. And not even a luncheon voucher less yet a hotel room for my overnight transit stay on new flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Great job"
Pros: "Crew were helpful. Food was OK. I had Hindu meal and it was hot and tasty but salty."
Cons: "Seats could have been more comfortable. I am not a tall person so seat spacing was not an issue, but for any one more than 5'8'' tall, seat spacing may be uncomfortable."
Cons: "I asked and confirmed twice on two separate phone calls that we would need a wheel chair assistance and they assured that it s notified on her ticket .. and still nothing was there for her .. she went by herself in London to the information desk asking for the wheel chair and in Lax no one even met"
Pros: "The crew were stiff but nice."
Cons: "The Club World seats are ancient and dirty with no storage. You are also staring directly at a stranger. Also British Airways makes you pay to select seats in advance even if you buy Business Class, which is a bit much."
Pros: "the flight was on time"
Cons: "old plane with bad customer service"
Pros: "Comfort of the journey, take off and landing were expertly done, approach was just the right speed and contact was soft but firm. Crew were pleasant enough. One of them felt he always had to show his authority with a firm voice, not necessary but maybe that’s how he speaks. In general no problems"
Cons: "I’m quite disappointed to have to buy food on an airline of British airways stature. My only gripe with whole day."
Cons: "room, more room, more room, one less seat would make all the difference in the world. but its all about money isnt it"
Pros: "Seats are good sized. Food and service was good."
Cons: "Too many flight delays."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Did not get my luggage"
Cons: "Lost my bag"
Cons: "Service level and carelessness of the crew"
Pros: "Quick flight, good service."
Cons: "No complaints about BA here! Only thing is that there was a group of rowdy young men who were very loud the entire flight, and I'd wished the flight attendants would have asked them to quiet down. But I really don't know if that's appropriate/part of their duties!"
Pros: "I was fasting for Ramadan so I didn’t try the food, the crew members were as nice as can be for BA"
Cons: "The seats were really tight The Boeing was super packed with passengers and the seats were more on the mini size"
Pros: "The crew was phenomenal overall service good no complaints in that regard"
Cons: "My son is 6 foot 4 and it really would have been nice to have more options for more leg room that didn't cost $266 per person we were really scrunched in there and it was pretty uncomfortable for 6 or 7 hours"
Pros: "Food was not bad"
Cons: "Service was incredibly slow Seats were tight Forced to check laptop despite this not being a standard with any other airline for the same route"
Cons: "The crew were clearly not happy to be here New Year’s morning. They didn’t do the proper number of services, then left many of us with our food trays while they all went to take a lengthy break together. Passengers were using the flight attendants call button, and they were ignored."
Pros: "This was the first time I had flown into Oakland instead of SFO. It was faster, easier and close to my destination than San Francisco Airport."
Cons: "The selection of music on BA flights has fallen dramatically in the last year. I prefer to listen to music rather than watch movies and in the past there was a good selection and a broad choice."
Cons: "The foot rest broken and I told them they don't do anything even I have bad knees"
Pros: "The flight crew"
Pros: "Updated flight info by kayak ."
Cons: "Delayed flights and missing baggage"
Pros: "We got to Barcelona safely"
Cons: "Paying for something basic to drink is something you'd espect on Spirit airlines not British Airways. The cabin crew and gate agents were rude and inconsistent with their behavior. They used to be full of class and unfortunately they are now trash. If I have other choices I will most certainly not choose BA."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "A two hour flight and they ran out of time to serve drinks. Maybe if BA reversed their ridiculous decision to charge for drinks, it wouldn't take them so long."
Pros: "Leg room, food and entertainment"
Pros: "The plane was comfortable and clean, and there was enough legroom for me even in economy. The flight attendants were friendly and meal services were well timed. For a 10+ hour flight, this was about as comfortable as it could be."
Pros: "Crew were great."
Cons: "We missed our flight because of boarding in U.K. Airport because of the employer new and didn't know instruction to enter pr card number and when she get it birding was closed , really its bad thing"
Pros: "Nice plane, very smooth flight, good landing."
Cons: "Small screen on movies, couldn't find charger station for my iPhone."
Cons: "I loved everything except the in flight entertainment which was very limited and boring. Please upgrade it to the high standard and good quality of everything else. I spent the whole flight reading!"
Pros: "To do it accurately and intensively one time"
Cons: "It has been a week and British airways still hasn't delivered my suitcase."
Cons: "Crew did not seem friendly nor as though they wanted to help. Perhaps because they were all young, perhaps some senior crew members to supervise would be beneficial."
Pros: "Some of the cabin crew were friendly."
Cons: "I was in the premium economy section, which was definitely more comfortable than regular steerage but the 777 cabin was old, and the amenities out of date. No plugs for phone or ipad charging; the in flight entertainment system was buggy and the selection was very limited. There was one drink service. Even business class looks worn out and tattered. No wonder the Gulf based airlines are eating their lunch."
Cons: "They sent an email with security requirements regarding electronics saying they can only be carried in checked in luggage and at the airport refused to accept any electronics in carry on or checked in."
Pros: "On time, good entertainment"
Pros: "Service was good. 2.5 meals, lots of water and drinks, kind service, kind help desk. Good room between seats"
Cons: "Seat bottoms were painful. TV screens were super old, but thats a very first world complaint."
Cons: "The plane takeoff time was delayed by almost two hours. When we got to Oakland, waiting for the luggage took an exceptionally long time. Don't understand why we couldn't sit in the waiting room until a "certain time" before getting on the plane, we had to wait outside in a hall with no seats. The room was not being used by anyone else."
Pros: "Great movie options. Numerous offers of water and juice. Friendly crew."
Pros: "Great customer service but a bit of a crowded flight."
Cons: "The lack of comfort."
Cons: "Flight diverted baf customer service over the phone"
Cons: "My flight was booked for April 25 and my paperwork actually showed that. Upon arrival at Gatwick I was told the flight left on April 24 and no other flight till April 27 so I had to go to Heathrow."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 45 mins, but when I'm 2 mins late to check in the cancelled my boarding pass. Ridiculous customer service wanted to charge me $400 to change my flight!!! Never again"
Pros: "Good entertainment choices, delicious meal, nice spanish red wine."
Cons: "Tight seating was fairly uncomfortable."
Pros: "The food was excellent and the flight staff was very accommodating."
Cons: "No wireless internet or USB/Power plugs to charge my devices on the plane."
