Pros: "Crew stepped up when we were delayed. In Flight entertainment was nice to help pass the time."
Cons: "More honesty from the pilots/airline. Got on the plane, taxied to take off, then informed that we had to go back to the gate. At the gate, they wouldn't let anyone off and then we were told that there was a minor maintenance issue that would take 15 minutes to fix. It took 4 hours. Poor job by Delta"
Pros: "The flight was not cancelled, crew was friendly, we arrived at our destination."
Cons: "Flight delayed two hours and absolutely no info provided to customers about what was going on and if/when flight would depart."
Pros: "The closeness of the airport in proximity to my house as well as the ease of finding your gate and boarding."
Cons: "There were so many passengers and such a small plane. There was NO leg room and the lady in front of me wanted to recline her seat, when I’m already claustrophobic to begin with. It was hot and the air above our head was barely working. There was one flight attendant who was blatantly rude to an elderly lady about her bags under the seat before the flight took off. To make this all worse, I had to suffer through all of this discomfort for over an hour for a 25 minute flight."
Cons: "Even vegetarian Hindu food was ordered over the phone. We're presented non veg food. When asked about the non veg food we were told that we dint order. Lie right away. Alitalia members showed worst and discrimination based behavior. Very rude. Won't travel on Alitalia in future"
Pros: "Crew did not serve breakfast because flight arrived earlier How about better communication with pilot?"
Pros: "The crew was polite but not overly friendly or welcoming."
Cons: "Boarding was orderly but it was hard to hear the announcements of the zones. I flew economy and it was like flying in a frozen sardine can. There was absolutely NO leg room. At 5 ft, 2 " if I found it difficult, I cannot even imagine how a taller person felt. I wore a coat, sweater, and scart , and warm socks, and I was still freezing the entire trip. It took me 20 minutes to thaw out after arriving. It was quite uncomfortable."
Pros: "Boarding from back to front. Making early boarders wait to the side when they tried to embark too soon."
Cons: "All the people standing in line prior to boarding."
Pros: "Friendly service. Frequent snacks which is nice on a 10-hour flight."
Cons: "Cramped conditions"
Pros: "Airline and airport staff were great"
Cons: "There was no time to eat. Nothing other than snacks. The time allotted was *barely* sufficient to get from gate to gate. We were starving when we got to our destination."
Pros: "I was booked for the late flight. There was an earlier flight with space. But I had to pay $200/seat to get to the earlier flight. WHY? Why make a family of 5 way several more hours? Why can't you be like Southwest?"
Cons: "Flight was delayed until it made me miss my connection"
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: "I began asking for my wheelchair escort the minute I got off the plane. I was assured in Houston they would be there when I got to Detroit. They were not. The request was clearly spelled out on my boarding pass along with my personal oxygen equipment information. I kept asking different staff and they would call for me then say somebody would be there. I waited for an entire hour and only when I started to cry did somebody do something. It was terribly stressful."
Pros: "The crew was nice. The cabin very clean. Flight very comfortable"
Cons: "The landing was a little rough"
Cons: "very cramped plan with very little leg room. OLD OLD OLD"
Cons: "Retrofitted entertainment system under the seats made it very uncomfortable. It was hard to even stretch your legs."
Cons: "All went well"
Pros: "Short flight."
Pros: "Entertainment. Large overhead compartments. Clean."
Cons: "The temperature in the plane was too hot and made for a very uncomfortable flight. The individual air conditioner spewed out hot air. My kids and I took off as much clothing as possible and still remained hot. We were putting ice on our wrist to try to cool down! I sat with my hand against the window to capture some cool air. We were in Row 37. I am not sure if we were in a hot seat or if the other passengers experienced the same."
Cons: "3 hrs delay My first fly was cancell Atl- Mty So ,they booking me next fly atl-Qro I have to stay weathing 9 hrs and just water and cookies"
Cons: "No on board entertainment."
Cons: "Missed our connection due to not enough time between connecting flights, Change of plans due to missed connection not anywhere near each other, one hour spent on the The tarmac... No earbuds available, No drink or food service... Worst flight experience ever"
Pros: "Service was great, flight was excellent"
Pros: "We stood on the ground due to weather, which had nothing to do with the airline itself. Keeping this from jading my point of view, the airline stood within the standard of what is expected of a good trip. Food was good, and the choice of movies, shows, and games helped the time pass. Staff was friendly, and checked bags were ready rather quickly."
Cons: "The number of updates telling us we are going nowhere, was a bit excessive."
Pros: "No headphones available for flight"
Pros: "The new delta seats are super uncomfortable and zero legroom. When you put the seat back back the butt part goes forward and your knees are crunched in front of you. The cushion also angles down its horrible. They gave a couple rows extra room and now charge more for them while crunching every other seat together."
Cons: "Seats and legroom horrible"
Pros: "movie choices are great"
Cons: "the people sitting behind me kept talking about dying from the aircraft, it makes me uncomfortable."
Pros: "New equipment"
Cons: "Late departure"
Pros: "I appreciated the kindness of the staff at each of our stops. From beginning to end they were polite, helpful, and kind!"
Pros: "friendly flight crew"
Pros: "All crew was great"
Cons: "We lost checked bag or it was taken, will loss a half day shopping for replacements. Compensation policy very unclear, not counting on getting any."
Pros: "Entertainment ( movies) were nice."
Cons: "9 hour flight and no food(meal) until 1 hour before we land. The worst food I've had on a international flight."
Pros: "On time...great service!"
Cons: "Seats were a bit narrow."
Pros: "Customer service very courteous and friendly."
Pros: "Video screens at each seat!!! Thank you Delta!"
Cons: "Nothing, everything was great!"
Pros: "Great crew,seating was more comfortable than the other legs of our trip, very attentive cabin service."
Cons: "The aircraft was older and visibly dirty in the corners. The baggage took well over the guaranteed 20 mins."
Cons: "This Lufthansa flight was operated by United Airlines. Coach seating was uncomfortable after a couple hours despite moving around regularly."
Pros: "Reliable airline."
Cons: "Overly strict on luggage size and weight. I’m talking about 0.1 kg difference. I was attempted twice to check the only small case I have, which is an exact fit to Lufthansa standard. Very annoying. Won’t fly LH again. British Airways is a lot better."
Pros: "Crew was thoughtful"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and the food was not worth eating"
Cons: "Luggage did not arrive."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Free drink and snack. Comfy seats and very easy boarding process"
Pros: "Super easy boarding, just scan your ticket and go. Staff was very friendly. On our short flight from Munich to Rome we were served a complimentary sandwich and option of beer, wine or other refreshments. There was plenty of leg room compared to our other recent flights"
Cons: "There was no in flight entertainment. Not that was really needed it with such a short flight."
Pros: "Super service. From gate in Frankfurt to Rome."
Cons: "Communication on which luggage carousel our luggage was going to be on. The screen said, carousel 11 when in actuality, it was carousel 10. Very confusing...and caused me a delay. That’s the only frustration in the entire trip so far."
Pros: "The airline staff was great. Everyone really helpful."
Pros: "1st Class is a joke. They leave the middle coach seat vacant. You do have more overhead storage since there are fewer people in "1st Class". Otherwise you may as well be in coach. For flights within Europe this appears to be the standard. Save you money fly coach when traveling within Europe."
Cons: "The seat and service."
Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful."
Cons: "You take a bus to reach the plane and the seats are uncomfortable without any entertainment systems. Thankfully the flight was only 1.5 hours."
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly, and service was fast. The snack was a chicken and carrot sandwich. It was good."
Cons: "The boarding was delayed twice and no explanation was given by the staff. We arrived 1 hour late."
Pros: "Good service."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly; more so on this flight than the last flight. I booked seats for the emergency exit knowing it gives more leg room."
Cons: "My baggage was not on the carrousel that was listed on the display, it took a long time to get my bag and it caused me to be late to check into my lodging."
Cons: "no screens"
Pros: "Much shorter flight time."
Cons: "My experience on the second flight was completely different from the first. Staff was not as friendly. Food was bad. No entertainment due to short flight time. Not as good of an experience."
Cons: "Seems like they want to nickel and dime you for everything now..."
Pros: "It was overall a great flying experience."
Cons: "One of my connections was way too short. I almost missed my flight. I had to run!"
Pros: "Boarding was automated gates was easy."
Pros: "Once again, the in-flight crew was excellent."
Cons: "The Frankfort airport is a nightmare. They have loooooooong gateways, so when I Finally got through security FOR THE THIRD TIME, it’s a 10 minute, speed-walk to the gate. Again, a flight delay was the only thing that made the connection possible. I made it to the gate with 3 minutes to spare, so no time for the bathroom, no time to get lunch or even a bottle of water, no time period. And at the end of it all, my bag is lost."
Pros: "There's nothing much that's positive to say about this leg of our journey."
Cons: "Not only was the flight delayed, but there was confusion at the gate for boarding of even first or business class. We had to carry our luggage down 2 flights of stairs to get on a bus, which then transported us a very long ways away on the tarmac. Then it was an older model plane and the engine noise, even though we were up front, was extremely loud! It was somewhat worrisome. The food was terrible and by the end of the 90 minute flight our rears were sore from the poor seat cushioning. Not a good experience at all. All of this was after a terrible experience and delay just trying to connect flights within the German airport and the security delays that probably would have made us lose our flight if it wasn't delayed. There needs to be a better system if you are not staying in Germany but just connecting flights from the same airline!"
Pros: "The service to clients number one. I like"
Pros: "Everything except that cookie!"
Cons: "I liked everything except the cookie. It reminded me of the low quality supermarket American cookies, way too sweet and flavorless. They used to give little sandwiches, excellent in quality!!! A cookie is good too, but a better one would do a great difference! It was early morning, who would eat a sugary chocolate chip cookie for breakfast? But otherwise, I would fly with Lufthansa again in a heartbeat!!! Thank you!!!!!!"
Pros: "Served sandwiches even though 1.5 hour flight."
Cons: "Slow and unorganized boarding. Crew was not outwardly friendly."
Cons: "Lost a whole day and a half of vacation!"
Cons: "Having to go through passport control and security a second time took too much time for the connection between flights."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Nothing good to say"
Cons: "Expect to be delayed if it snows a bit in Munich. Delayed for more than 7 hours total. 3 of those on the plane in Munich. Horrible!"
Pros: "Efficient crew. Quick service, quick flight."
Cons: "No negatives."
Cons: "Did not happen"
Pros: "Plane was clean, crew nice and courteous."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."
Cons: "Short flight so no entertainment provided or needed."
Pros: "The crew was great, the food wasn't bad and the seat was comfortable and I am very tall"
Cons: "Delay for one hour"
Pros: "The crew. They made an uncomfortable flight acceptable."
Cons: "Boarding confusing and flight experience poor. The crew was the only nice part. The rest, not worth the money."
Cons: "The boarding gate was changed three times. I fell asleep at one of the gates. Luckily I woke up and realized the second change in time to still make it there."
Cons: "The boarding was very disorganized."
Pros: "Food was great!"
Cons: "Lackluster movie selection, internet was a rip off and barely worked."
Pros: "Excellent service. Excellent food! So thoughtful."
Cons: "Seat is not premium."
Cons: "Our flight from SFO to Frankfurt was cancelled and we were re-booked on a very bad itinerary."
Cons: "No air vents"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Small leg space"
Cons: "It was a transatlantic flight in coach. There is no way to make that a pleasant experience. Entertainment system was down. Ran out of one dinner option."
Cons: "Lost my Baggage for 2 days."
Cons: "Breakfast was just a roll. I would have preferred eggs."
Cons: "This was a united flight. The personal was not helpful, only in helping me communicate with the airport in Rome to change my flight. I had to pay 97 euros for this change. I am upset and think it is not fair that I need to pay for a problem united had with their flight. I also think star Allience failed as they were not able to resolve the problem with their partner airlines."
Cons: "My connecting flight to Rome wasn't listed on any monitors, and four people couldn't find Terminal A on the map. Fortunately I found some fellow Americans who also couldn't find Terminal A , lower numbered gates, from our current Z gate. We went to the right, following most disembarked passengers and signs for some A gates....a mess! In the end, we had to go all the way back, past our original gate to a Customs area where they just stamped our passports and onward to our gates. It seemed like the signs only helped if you were going in the correct direction to begin with. Even my German friend said how bad that airport is for directions!"
Cons: "Lufthansa canceled my flight and we were rebooked onto a 7 am flight out of Naples."
Cons: "The delay and the lack of movies. Seats are very small. I was sitting near a larger passenger and it was very tight. We had over two hours delay for mechanical problems with the plane."
Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "Salimos a tiempo . El business es muy confortable"
Cons: "La comida horrible . No se limpian los baños"
Pros: "The plane size & comfort was excellent. The staff were very friendly"
Cons: "Wifi on klm"
Cons: "Transavia does not serve anything complementary, not even water. A flight between two countries that is five hours long must be better than this. I was not aware of Transavia doing that before I booked. I will never fly with them again"
Pros: "A flight was delayed due to weather conditions and we had to sit in the plane for almost an hour, BUT information sharing from the Capitan was sufficient and on-time. Very good job from pilots. Leg room in economy - I was positively surprised, very decent leg room! Thank you for providing it."
Cons: "I flew economy and all was good and appropriate to the level."
Pros: "Flight and the crew!"
Cons: "Staff at the airport pushing you to upgrade to first class but not making it clear only the first trip from Athens to Amsterdam which the first class uses same uncomfortable seats as the economy to pay extra 130 euros ridiculous airfrance stuff! I should have flown all the way to NYC first class!!!"
Cons: "Half the screens were not working - crew were made aware but nothing was done. Vegetarian choices were poor to non-existent ; I witnessed crew insist to a passenger that there were no vegetarian options! They finally cobbled something together for him but not a pleasant experience"
Cons: "Don’t be late"
Pros: "Seat was comfy and spacious for economy class"
Cons: "Vegetarian meal was okay but could be more enjoyable if served with bread at start of meal."
Pros: "Like the overall KLM experience"
Cons: "Food could have had better quality and the stewardess served it all at once versus in the various courses."
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."
Cons: "I bought tickets thrue you for me two months ago Iit went well but on the last few days I also bought ticked for my brother and his wife and it was a disaster night mare for them bound for Montpellier too to attend a wedding the damn suitcase didn’t get to final destination it was at Orlando but got"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and the food was great."
Cons: "Something did not go right with our booking so it took some work for the airline to get it figured out for us. Thankfully we had left plenty of time. But that was an unexpected stress."
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Pros: "very attentive crew"
Cons: "Only ham sandwiches on offer! I'm not demanding and would have been happy with cheese."
Pros: "Good food, friendly service"
Cons: "More trash pickup; only one round of beverage service"
Cons: "I booked tickets via Delta, operated by KLM. They lost both of my check in bags in September, and it happened again today for the same scheduled flights. Had 4 hours of layover and KLM still wasn’t able to manage it."
Pros: "Last year I flew Lufthansa which was my worst experience flying ever. I thought the new standard was so low I would never fly to Europe again. I had heard KLM was good but I felt this was as good as could be expected actually much better. The food was even good."
Cons: "I would have to dream something up."
Pros: "The crew was really friendly."
Cons: "There was a Force Majeur delay in Helsinki due to wings freezing that caused 20 minute delay to Amsterdam and made the interchange stressful."
Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."
Cons: "Nothing special"
Pros: "Amsterdam airport and Rome airport were as breeze to navigate, even only knowing English"
Pros: "Efficient crew"
Cons: "Long, slow line at check in. Not many new movies or tv shows"
Pros: "The flight to Gdansk took off and arrived on-time and the staff were professional."
Cons: "The flight to Amsterdam from Gdansk was late and I had to RUN to the connecting gate. 50 minutes is NOT ENOUGH time to go through passport control."
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable, food was excellent, the staff was very nice, cabin was quite and roomy."
Cons: "No outlets to charge digital devices, and need more bathrooms on board. I was able to sleep most of the 11 hour flight so I did not take advantage of the entertainment."
Pros: "Easy to board and easy flight."
Pros: "Professional crew. Good boarding."
Cons: "No entertainment on board in business. Stale buns - staff unapologetic. Older 737 with uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Able to fly direct to ansterdam"
Cons: "Have to lay over on the way back. More expensive than other airlines."
Cons: "The movie selection did not seem extremely varied."
Pros: "Overall everything was ok."
Cons: "Not that I cared at the time but having been asked for a rating on “entertainment” - there was none. Cheap and cheerful really. No extras over the likes of RyanAir."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "the connection flights was the worse! The gate was changed in Amsterdam 3 times! From D82 to C6 and then to C11. The distance between B82 and C was 20-30 minutes walk. No rushing was needed though, the flight was delayed for 1:30h and after we all boarded a further delay was announced. I will never fly with KLM."
Pros: "The food service was good and the flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "The plane was very uncomfortable. The seats were small, you felt on top of the person next to you, and there was no leg room. I am a pretty small person- I can't image how uncomfortable all of the taller passengers must have been."
Pros: "Only thing we liked was the fact that we were able to get onto our flight at all..."
Cons: "Was not informed that checking in online is the only way to secure a seat. So, regardless of whether you book your tickets 3 months in advance or the day before, you're not actually guaranteed a seat unless you check in online. We weren't told this until we were at the airport and checked in there that we might not be able to get our pre-booked in advance flight because of over-booking from KLM. We then had to wait and see if there were seats available when boarding. Luckily, there were, but we were not sat together. Not the greatest start to our first holiday together as a couple. We were told that if there weren't seats available, they'd pay for us to get to another airport to fly out, which would have meant a huge delay on the only time off we'd get together this year and have to rearrange our pre-booked and pre-paid living arrangements for the week. All because there wasn't a lot of emphasis on the need to check in online before hand. You'd think if someone checked in at the airport, that would be more of a guarantee that they'd be flying with you that day, but apparently not. Definitely not impressed or happy with this part of the KLM experience. This is the only company that we've had this problem with, they should make it clearer that it is essential to check in online."
Pros: "The food was excelent"
Cons: "I have to pay to pay a little more confort"
Pros: "The flight was very good, specially considering it was a daylight one. Staff was friendly and servicial. Tue food was above the industry's average."
Pros: "Easy Boarding"
Pros: "staff was fine"
Cons: "old old plane, very uncomfortable. Tiny bad screen made movies pointless"
Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy!"
Pros: "Catering is ok"
Cons: "Seats comfort really old school"
Cons: "Terrible service in flight and customer service wise .. app functionality was below"
Pros: "Efficiency and speed of boarding was acceptable. I have no complaints about that aspect. The Comfort+ seats were worth the upgrade, pretty comfortable and reasonable legroom unless you have a big carry on stowed under the seat in front of you."
Cons: "The first announcement they made to all of us in the economy section was thay they did not have any headphones for anyone but business class. I was told when I booked the seat that the headphones would be complementary. So I did not bother to bring any assuming they were going to keep their word; I figure I'd make it work and watch a movie without sound. If that isn't bad enough midway through my nine hour flight my monitor went out and would not turn back on."
Pros: "Everytime she passed she was hitting me or I had to hold my drink so that she wouldn't knock it off"
Cons: "The fact that there are different airline carriers for one flight is hard. In my second flight they made me check a bag which was considered a carry on during my first flight"
Pros: "The staff and crew"
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: "Spacious cabins, friendly service"
Pros: "For an 8 hr flight...multiple snacks, 2 meals and continuous beverage service. Blanket, pillow amd movies."
Cons: "Watched flight attendant drop tongs on floor, pick them up and put them back in the bowl of buns and continue to use them to serve bums"
Pros: "Seat space was good for a short flight, inclusive of free snack and drink."
Cons: "Too much overoverhead luggage."
Pros: "I liked the leg room, I liked the customer service of the crew, smooth flight."
Cons: "Both ways up and down I struggled with over-head luggage space. We were allowed a cabin bag and a small hand-bag in the flight but as we were among the last half of the passengers to board the flight we couldn't find anywhere to keep our luggage and the crew had to take them away from us to store them somewhere at the back far away from our seats. As a result we had to wait until all the passengers got off the plane to get back our luggage and we were the last two passengers to get off. Unpleasant!"
Pros: "Price for seat was very good. We left 30 minutes late but arrived early."
Pros: "Crew were great and really quick through terminal 5 even though it was the school Easter holidays.."
Cons: "It was only when we got on board realised food was card only and limited to lots of sandwiches..A lighter option like the Bols salad I bought at Smith's would have been nice and could be a veggie choice. Not a big issue though just you asked what can be better."
Pros: "Nice plane, newer model."
Cons: "The ability to control air flow was available on every other row. We were unlucky to be in an off row and it was very uncomfortable. Fortunately my wife was able to move to the window seat where it was cooler. The athletic team on board made disembarking a bigger challenge than necessary."
Cons: "No complimentary drinks and very tight quarters"
Pros: "The drew were helpful"
Cons: "Sitting on the tarmac. No vegan meals."
Cons: "one hour late departing"
Pros: "In spite of delay caused by luggage to be taken of the aircraft, flight arrived to a Rome on time.captain kept us well informed of the reasons for delay. Boarding was done efficiently with care for people with children and elderly passangers."
Pros: "That we finally made a flight to Rome"
Cons: "Too tired to comment"
Pros: "No water without purchase"
Pros: "Cabin was clean. Crew were nice enough."
Cons: "Two hour delay before we could take off. We were in the plane all that time. People were tired and hungry. When we finally got going, we had to pay for food and drinks. The service didn't seem very efficient."
Pros: "The crew was very hospitable. The food was good. There were blankets and pillows. Although we hit some turbulence, the pilot was really good about explaining it and calming the mood."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the entertainment system was on the blink and it was impossible to hear anything on the headsets."
Pros: "Boarding efficient and polite"
Cons: "Old plane. If there was food they didn’t offer (said they had drinks) . When we asked they said we missed it. No WiFi or entertainment . Seats without modern headrests."
Pros: "The short flight easy to sit down"
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable"
Cons: "We were not even offered a glass of water."
Pros: "Everything was dealt-with efficiently. Very friendly staff. I didn’t want to have to make that journey but it was as comfortable as it could be."
Cons: "Nothing could have been better."
Pros: "arrived 8 minutes early"
Cons: "Was told at gate ALL bags had to go in hold. Once bags labeled and on bus NO ONE else was labeled. Took labels off boarded; plenty of overhead room. Why lie to us? Also asked insurance pay out limit of lost hold bag just in case. They refused to answer telling me I should buy a lock to lock bag in case it gets lost.What is that going to solve. Don’t go flying with BA if you have anything of any value or fragile."
Cons: "Flight was 45 minutes late. Crew was standoffish, bordering on unpleasant. They want you to pay for a glass of plain water! Definitely not the British Arways I remembered."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Good day in the skies."
Pros: "Standard BA flight."
Cons: "Delayed departure missed connecting flight. Had to rebook and travel via Munich to make meeting."
Pros: "Everything was efficient and on time. The crew was pleasant."
Cons: "The extra baggage charges made this not economical."
Cons: "The only refreshment without charge was tap water. The crew also pulled a curtain across the tops of the seats in front of us to separate economy from priority, and it felt somewhat insulting. Boarding was delayed with no communication from the crew as we all stood at the gate waiting for instructions."
Cons: "The online check in didn't work. At the airport at check-in I had to wait 15 min to get a boarding pass and a seat allocated as there weren't any available as the company oversells tickets.. that's what they said to me at check in.. When boarding I was told that I needed to check-in my cabinet bag because of the crowded flight, the lady just put a label on the handle of my trolley and said to leave the bag down on my way to the plane.. Thing which of course didn't do... very bad service.. I'll keep traveling with easyJet and reconsider British airways only for a super cheap flight."
Cons: "no entertainment at all more significantly, no beverages at all? Flight attendants came through once with the beverage cart, but only asked the person at the end of our row if he wanted anything. He asked for juice assumed it would be complimentary but it wasn't. They offered to get him a water. The flight attendants did not offer me or the man next to me anything at all. Everyone knows that air travel is dehydrating - I can't believe BA doesn't give provide complimentary water and juice."
Cons: "Please include a complimentary tea and/or snack."
Cons: "We paid an extra $60 to select seats up front and they moved our seats to the back of the plane without notifying us."
Pros: "seat was comfort, the flight was on time."
Cons: "no free water? it is really a big surprise, how could be, it is not cheap airline."
Cons: "Had to pay for a cup of coffee - this is a free service in the US so was surprised when asked for a cc."
Cons: "The aircraft (flight operated by American Airlines) was so old that in Economy class there weren't individual screens on the back of the front seat. I haven't seen anything like that since the 1990s! There was no USP or outlet to charge phones or ipads so i couldn't even use my entertainment. Passengers should be informed in advance or given a significant discount. Very disappointed."
Cons: "We have to pay for even water or tea or coffee. So we stay thirsty."
Cons: "it was delayed 2+ hours. They should have at least offered free drinks for the trouble."
Pros: "I didn't partake of food or entertainment on the two hour flight. All was great."
Cons: "Worst flight ever. Cabin Crew direspectful, vulgar language, condescending to passengers and manhandeling people."
Pros: "Very courteous attendants"
Cons: "It was all good"
Pros: "See my notes on the Chicago London leg."
Cons: "Same as the likes..."
Pros: "Comfortable ride. I wish that'd been my plane to London."
Cons: "Nothing. It was good"
Pros: "When I traveled Lax to Denmark via London on July.13. At that time from London to Copenhagen crews only sale the food and drinks. My group tour customers were thirsty and they had to take some pills. so they asked just cup of water, but the crews did not provide even a cup of water . That time was dinner time so every people was so hungry too. And also yesterday my another tour customer was so hungry. I understand you not served food at time. but just serve them a snack or juice . Because time jet lag make them more tired and hungry. I was worked at the Korean air line before, so I understand the stewardess should do only follow the regulations. But just serve some water to hungry and tired passengers."

Pros: "Nice aircraft and flight!"
Cons: "We were never offfered a snack! The people in the rows ahead of us got a snack and the people behind us did as well. Last leg of a 3 flight series of about 13 hours (and overnight), so some coffee and a small snack would have been enjoyed."
Pros: "Best airline !!"
Cons: "Always timely and flight crew is personable and helpful."
Pros: "the seats on this plane were more comfortable and the crew was friendly, even though there were some irate customers."
Cons: "We boarded late, sat on the plane for more than 2 hours (it was uncomfortably warm) and were told we then had to switch planes due to a mechanical problem. I understand this happens, but for the inconvenience BA should give some sort of compensation. After the long wait we were starving, but they ran out of all of the food choices. We were scheduled to arrive at 16:30 but ended up arriving after 22:00. this wasted our first night of our vacation in Rome. There was one passenger in particular who was yelling, swearing and causing a scene because of the flight delay. His rude behavior was rewarded with an upgrade to first class. The message this sends to your passsengers is that we should all be loud and obnoxious when problems arise. I was not impressed with my first experience with BA."
Cons: "Checked 3 bags. 65 euros each. I think you own this one."
Cons: "Asked to check baggage in right before boarding. Cabin pressure was terrible. Seats were not comfortable No food was offered for free. No entertainment was offered. Disappointed in flying Airbus 321"
Cons: "My luggage didn't make the transfer"
Pros: "Pre boarding made us 3 hrs late to sorrento Italy"
Pros: "The crew were fantastic, the seats were spacious but not overly comfortable. Flight was punctual and bags came quickly."
Cons: "Lounge was overcrowded, the plane was very old (the headrest of the man next to me fell off) with no entertainment whatsoever"
Pros: "Crew looked groomed"
Cons: "No snacks"
Pros: "Great customer service but a bit of a crowded flight."
Cons: "The lack of comfort."
Pros: "the friendliness of the crew"
Cons: "I'm surprised there were no complimentary beverages. Also, this is not the airline's fault, but the woman sitting next to me was wearing an excessive amount of perfume, which gave me a headache. I think the airline should make recommendations for passengers not to be heavily scented. As a physician, I worry about patients with RADS (reactive airways dysfunction syndrome) who can develop bronchospasm if exposed to individuals wearing lots of perfume, and a plane is an enclosed space."
Cons: "We asked if the Cajun chicken (which by the way isn’t anything like Cajun chicken) contained any nuts as one of us in the party is severely allergic, only to wait more than 15 minutes and were told they don’t have an allergen sheet so they don’t know! Pls take food allergies seriously!"
Pros: "pleasant crew"
Pros: "The entertainment system was great"
Cons: "The ride was somewhat turbulent but nothing can be done for that"
Pros: "The meal."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "The whole flight from Philadelphia to Rome was on American Airlines, not British Air. This was confusing at first and made it difficult to know what airline desk I needed to check into, but once that was clear it all went smoothly. The dinner was mediocre and the breakfast terrible."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Very nice hard product complimented by a great cabin crew."
Cons: "The crew set the bar too high for future flights :)"
Pros: "Entertainment choices, no additional charge for wine, food was good"
Cons: "we were packed in like sardines on American airways ..NOT British airways. I’ve flown overseas on European flights before and there is more attention to comfort. We sat in front of the lavatory and could not sleep because every time someone used it, the light flashed in our eyes and the flush was quite loud. I paid extra for the seats we had but did not know they were right by noisy bright rest room."
Pros: "Food was okay."
Cons: "No advance check in left me waiting in line at my connection in order to get a center seat in the middle of a group. There’s no excuse for manual check in in this day and age."
Cons: "Never taken!!!"
Pros: "Food was okay. Luckily plenty of wine to get through 8 hours on this horrible plane."
Cons: "No individual video screens. Also our audio did not work ( true of most of one side of plane) so we could not even watch movie on the TINY overhead screen. Reading lights also did not work. We had no options to pass the time for an eight hour flight. The crew was unconcerned about the problem. They seemed grumpy!! This plane should not be used for long haul flights."
Pros: "I arrived at my destination at least! Good crew and decent food but that’s the least I can expect from an 8 hour flight."
Cons: "Very old plane. Had the screens every 4-5 aisles. No control over the entertainment. Very uncomfortable seats, but so are almost every other airlines. The worst part about this flight was that I traveled with my girlfriend and when I went to check in, 24 hours before, there were only single seats left and there were so many open seats together that were considered “preferred” and had to pay $80 for just one “preferred” seat just so we can sit together on an 8 hour long flight. The seat didn’t even have any extra legroom or anything, it was a normal seat. American Airlines is just trying to squeeze money out of anything they can."
Pros: "Crew made the best of a bad situation: originally planned plane with sold-out seats replaced by a smaller one -- BAD! Extra kudos for crew for creative swapping to move me to an emergency row seat when I discovered that my **extra-charge** aisle seat was damaged and unusable. Food & beverage service -- adequate, timely (though some nutrition concerns.) Good, current entertainment selections."
Cons: "The obvious -- the switch to a smaller plane, causing some passengers great distress; not realizing that a sold seat was damaged; selling me that damaged seat, and at a premium. Food nutrition -- tasty, but carb-heavy, fatty and salty. Bathrooms -- became rather smelly and unkempt toward last 1/4th of 9+ hour flight."
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Seats were very small and very tight bags did not stow under seats like usual"
Cons: "Either Webjet or BritishAir failed to notify our party in advance to allow a reasonable accommodation of our fully paid requirements."
Pros: "I really liked the seats. Very comfortable especially how far they reckoned and the height of the backrest was perfect for a petite person like myself. Usually they are too tall and the headrest forces my head down. Also amazing selection of movies! Wow, thank you."
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent!"
Cons: "Seating extremely tight"
Pros: "Huge clean plane"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Cons: "My Chair would not recline it was broken and was crushed every time the guy in front would lay back on his cause I could not move mine!"
Pros: "Good TV's. Great service. Good food."
Cons: "It was long"
Pros: "I truly enjoyed the flight attendants, the flight overall and the great price I got."
Cons: "The seats are slightly uncomfortable to sleep in, but that's normal."
Pros: "It was just great"
Cons: "At the terminal , they were not helpful."
Pros: "Everythung was on time."
Cons: "The seats are much closer together ... so challenging for a 6' 2" male"
Pros: "Reasonably large leg room and overhead"
Cons: "Five times they tried to get us to pay for a seat assignment (even after they had assigned seats). Paying $32 for "priority" boarding is rediculous?"
Pros: "Good flight. No wait for the luggage,it was deplaned before we reached the claim area."
Cons: "Check in was a little confusing. The line for security was extremely long. After it was a breeze."
Pros: "Boarding was on time and we departed on time and arrived on schedule-fllight was very comfortable"
Cons: "Snacks were ok but main meal could have been better- suggest u go back to box meal such as a sandwich and piece of fruit."
Cons: "Seats are not designed for long haul flights"
Pros: "We landed early, it was fairly comfortable in coach for a very tall person, and there was good communication from the flight attendants and pilot with the passengers. A very pleasant experience overall, from someone who is a nervous flyer!"
Pros: "Everything was great. Easy boarding great comfortable seating and friendly efficient stewardship"
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. There was no leg room and 122 of the space below the seat in front of me was taken up by a metal box attached to the seat. I couldn't put both feet under the seat in front of me. The food was bad tasting and overly processed. We were fed a lean cuisine. The entertainment was from mounted tv's in the aisle. At this point, all planes crossing the ocean should have individual tvs for a customer to watch. They had this 15 years ago, how do they not have it now."
Cons: "Small seats, no wifi, no chargers, terrible entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was generally happy and friendly."
Cons: "No video on a transcontinental 767?? Are you kidding? Stupid excuse for being 2hrs late due to mechanical. They blamed it on something completely foreseeable and plannable. This plane is older than the plan I took my first flight on as a kid in 1984. I thought united was bad but then I experienced American. At least the crew were not jerks."
Pros: "The staff were fine and boarding went relatively smoothly."
Cons: "The plane was dated and small. There were no individual screens for entertainment. I've flown internationally with American before and felt this specific experience was worse."
Cons: "Seat spacing for international flight"
Cons: "super slow touchscreen response. menu of entertainment difficult to navigate and unimpressive content"
Pros: "We arrived on time."
Cons: "I booked with British Airways and later noticed the plane was operated for American Airlines. The seats were cramped and the online entertainment was terrible. On an overseas flight, I expect in 2017 that there will be on-screen entertainment on the back of the seat in front of me. Instead, the movie was projected on a screen in the middle seats on an overhead that was about 10 rows away. Plus, you didn't get to pick your movie. You were stuck with the selections provided by the airline. I would have brought along my DVD player or laptop had I know this was going to happen. American flight crews are not as friendly and accommodating as European flight crews, which is why I try not to select an American carrier. Seats are less comfortable on American carriers also."
Pros: "Not much to like, plus we were late"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, no in-seat or personalized entertainment."
Pros: "Take off and landing was incredibly smooth, along with the 8 hour flight from NYC to Rome, Italy. Perhaps the best flight I've ever had."
Cons: "The food wasn't all that good but I didn't have high expectations."
Pros: "They finally got us there."
Cons: "The airplane broke on the ramp and they made is sit in the airplane while the tempeture rose to about 100 degrees. I think someone was about to pass out before they realized they had to get us off. Then we were over 4 hours late departing while they were getting another plane"
Pros: "There were empty seats close to me, so that was great. The food was pretty good and it was nice that the wine was free."
Cons: "The screen on the back of the seat in front of me did not work well at all so it was difficult to watch movies. (I had to press multiple times to change the screen from one display to another.)"
Cons: "There was no wifi and no screen on the seat. I could not see the screen for the movie. Airline was old and also it took 2 hours to get going because they had to check the engine."
Pros: "The quality of aircraft"
Cons: "The service lacked any sort of empathy. The crew on this flight especially the African American lady, I think are in the wrong profession. Didn't care at all. Seemed miserable."
Pros: "not bad, I upgraded to first for the leg room, I'm 6'6", so it kinda worked out."
Cons: "Very old plane."
Pros: "Efficient boarding. Plane clean. Seats lean back far but that being said the individual in front of you ends up in your lap."
Cons: "As night went on a couple of the flight attendants in the premium cabin seats with standard legroom appeared grumpy and short with patrons. No gluten free options. In flight entertainment and reading lights not working for my dad or I. A long flight for that to be out."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Wished the airline would have checked my bag rather then leave it at the gateway Time was wasted if you had a connecting flight"
Cons: "I paid $150 extra for 2 exit row seats thinking we could use the extra room on the long flight. Unfortunately, the exit row space was cut off by and smaller than a normal row! Our legs were extremely cramped by the time we got to Rome. We had no overhead storage, which was already small, so we had to put our carry-ons multiple rows behind us -- which made exiting the plane a pain. There wasn't any personal entertainment systems, just one tv per section. The food was sub par. The crew was nice enough, but I'll NEVER take American Airlines internationally again."
Pros: "There were too many gate changes ."
