Pros: "Sharp good atention in counter"
Pros: "- Presence of entire box sets of some TV shows was a nice touch that I made good use of."

Cons: "Entertainment choices were a bit sparse."
Pros: "The rear section of the plane had lots of room (empty seats), enough to lay down across three seats. Pleasant and helpful crew."
Cons: "Minimal food available between departure and arrival meals; 10 hrs or so is a long time to get by on potato chips."
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "The food was okay. There were more tasty options traveling to Heathrow versus from Heathrow to the NYC. The boarding process was a mess. We had to wait in an enormous line and then take a bus to the flight."
Pros: "Fast boarding and nice staff. Food selection was ok"
Cons: "One item missing from menu (unavailable). Issues with entertainment system. Bathrooms lacked moisturiser which is always very helpful on long flights where the air is dry"
Pros: "Flight was close to being on time. I was able to get a lot of sleep on the flight."
Pros: "Legroom, lovely staff and all round good flight"
Pros: "Flew virgin after long time and kind of disappointment with comfortable seats. seats space is tight and legs space as well with some box under the seat."
Cons: "seat comfortable and let space"
Pros: "Friendly crew, clean, well presented cabin."
Cons: "Flight was late (again). Food was very little for an international service (small packet of pretzels + savoury muffin."
Pros: "Talk about an awesome experience. I loved the friendly staff and the accommodations were superb. I could ask for no better. Even the food was excellent."
Cons: "I have nothing but praise."
Cons: "For oversea traveling, food could and should be better. For our flight from AKL to BNE, we had to pay for our soft drink!!!"
Cons: "Seats in economy are way to small and very uncomfortable if tall. Too close to the seats in front of you. I was miserable all the way to London."
Pros: "Very polite and helpful staff."
Pros: "The crew was excellent. Flight was quite comfortable. Nice attention to service"
Cons: "I would have appreciated another round of hot drinks."
Pros: "No one would update that the flight was delayed. They would not even communicate as to why delayed and would not put us in a different flight. Absolutely no customer service. Disappointed and would not fly jet airways again . I missed my conference lecture today as I was late."
Cons: "No communication, nor will they tell you why it's late . Nor will they move you to another flight even wen requested"
Cons: "After 14 hours the seats were like sitting on spikes"
Cons: "A plane from 1960? No entertainment center!"
Pros: "Everything from boarding to disembarking went very smoothly. Flight was on time, seats were comfortable and crew was friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "During my flight from LAX to LHR I requested (pre-booked) a special meal (Asian Vegetarian). During the flight I was told there was no such request in their records and therefore I had to stay hungry for the entire duration of the flight. During my return flight from LHR to LAX the in flight entertainment system for my seat was not functional. I requested it to be reset several times and in spite of the hostess resetting it several times, it did not function. I had to stay without an entertainment system during the entire flight. This was my first time travel with Virgin Atlantic. I may never fly Virgin Atlantic again."
Pros: "We paid extra for more legroom and it was totally worth it."
Cons: "The regular seats were so lacking in leg room that I could not cross my legs, reach the floor to get my glasses when I dropped them, or even get my carry-on out. There is no way to get into the "brace for impact position" with arms over your head and head in your lap! This is really unsafe, not to mention really uncomfortable. The flight was long, so comfort would be nice! Our first flight was regular seats and I was pretty miserable and I am a slender woman 5'6". The extra 3" was great, and we had to pay more on the return trip. The FAA should be investigating seat size and safety on planes."
Pros: "I felt that they were very thoughtful about the fact that it was a long flight. We got two small meals, which was perfect, and even a little gift bag with a sleep mask and toothbrush and such in it. These were just a couple of the many nice touches included in the flight."
Cons: "Very small quibble: the screen resolution, or maybe the contrast, of the personal video players was not so great. This was fine in most cases, but it meant I could not watch videos that had subtitles. Not a big deal but possibly worth fixing. Thanks"
Pros: "Efficient service"
Cons: "Entertainment screens were of poor quality"
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The floor at our feet had been spilled on during a previous flight and not cleaned. Bag was lost and not returned for 5 days. Crew during flight was flippant and disinterested in service...unless you were Economy+."
Pros: "Food, crew and overall experience was good"
Cons: "Got assigned seats all the way in the back. They were comfortable but would have preferred better seats."
Pros: "comfort, entertainment, food"
Pros: "The service, the service. My wife got a cheese and fruit platter after dinner. Crew went out of their way to make us feel special and welcomed. Excellent service."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Cons: "Both my departing flight and returning flight had broken wifi on it. Very bummed"
Cons: "Everyone was delightful during the entire flight."
Pros: "Audrey agent at the counter at Heathrow was amazing assisted me in getting my bags located and transfer from air malta to vigin"
Pros: "Food was very good crew were pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "Seats are very hard"
Pros: "The space you have with your legs is sufficient and the chairs are very comfortable. The food was really nice. I enjoyed the trip, although it was a long one."
Pros: "All the meals and movies included"
Pros: "Getting off the stinky airplane...peeyoo!"
Cons: "The three hour delay in departure."
Pros: "Seat Legroom Comfort Food Service Crew ... amazing!!!"
Pros: "Entertainment was okay, flight crew was nice"
Cons: "After checking in my wife and I were in separate seats. I was then unable to change my seat after check in. After calling the helpline I was informed that it is impossible to change the seat after checking in until I am at the airport. No other airline has such an obscure, in efficient rule. Virgin takes pride in being a step above their competition - I didn't see it. I have flown international on Delta, American Airlines, British Airlines, United, and others and any difference in the experience was negligible."
Pros: "Entertainment had a good selection"
Cons: "Seat very narrow. I'm a 5'5" 135 lb female."
Pros: "New boarding system of putting your hand luggage on ready was good."
Cons: "You have to pay for food and entertainment even though flight over 4 hours."
Pros: "Free drinks"
Pros: "No food provided limited entainment"
Cons: "Chairs were comfortable"
Cons: "Great crew and flight! Cheers!"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and short"
Cons: "The entertainment system kept resetting over and over throughout the flight. And drinks were served late in a not so comfortable temperature cabin. But everything else was ok"
Pros: "Was boarded promptly"
Pros: "Great entertainment features and free drinks."
Cons: "Ran out of certain types of food"
Pros: "Seats in economy are never comfortable. And someone also reclines their seat. But overall bathrooms were clean and food was good. Really no complaints about the flight itself or the crew!"
Cons: "Carry ons are too big! People should not be allowed to bring a piece of luggage inside the cabin. They are very heavy and some people cannot even lift them to place them in overhead compartment. Makes boarding slower and more complicated. Seats need to be a little wider. If a big person sits next"
Pros: "Food selection, service, and variety of entertaining entertainment options."
Cons: "More leg room for economy."
Pros: "Having internet access on an overseas flight was a new treat for me. Delta appears to be bucking the trend of making flying miserable. I liked the waiting area at JFK with charging stations for every seat."
Cons: "B.S. all the Delta Boarding groups. Geez, have you lost all common sense! C'mon... I understand the ill/med conditions passengers. How about 1 kid, then 2 kids then 3 kids, w/ cataracts, bladder probelems, Platinum, Gold, Silver, Paper, Plus 1, Plus 2, Main Cabin 1, 2 and 3."
Pros: "Food was great. Especially the ice cream."
Pros: "Boarded on time."
Cons: "After boarding the door was closed and the jet way was moved back. 5 minutes later they said they were going to bring the jet way back and open door to let more people on board. They broke 2 FAA regulations by doing this and we were delayed an hour because Deltas computer would not allow this."
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: "We left and arrived early. Smooth flight overall just a great experience"
Cons: "We couldn’t have peanuts. Not really a negative but"
Pros: "Nothing in particular stands out."
Cons: "The boarding process seemed backward, took longer than usual to board the plane."
Pros: "On time! Easy boarding!"
Cons: "They had problems with both the wifi and the entertainment system. Super friendly crew further."
Pros: "We landed earlier than expected"
Cons: "Bathroom was very smelly"
Pros: "On Time"
Cons: "No opportunity to purchase additional food"
Cons: "Got put on standby despite having purchased my ticket over 1 month in advance"
Pros: "I am liking the new Delta terminal at LAX. The flight crew was nice pleasant and helpful. The pilots kept us informed."
Cons: "The Delta Sky club was small and over crowed. If you go take the first seat spot you can find. It doesn’t get bigger. I have high hopes for the new combined lounge between the terminals. The flight itself felt like an older 737-800 while it had power there were only two and the two others in my row snagged them. I was in Delta Comfort and have to say the extra leg room isn’t a lot."
Pros: "We made it it was short 1 hour 11 min"
Cons: "I had a long lay over it was more then 12 hours"
Pros: "gate staff were great"
Cons: "plane cabin staff looked overworked"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "With a short layiver, it would be nice to have the option to pirchas a sandwich on board"
Pros: "Whole thing was easy, plane was nicely updated on the interior"
Pros: "Crew was as helpful as they could be. Even though they didn't have much info about the delay, they answered questions and stayed calm."
Cons: "2 hour delay. Got a free bottle of water."
Pros: "2 hour delay.. had requested when I originally booked the flight an isle seat. I did not get it. The flight was long and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Attendants were courteous quick and attentive. On board entertainment was awesome. Kept us fed with main course snacks and beverages throughout. Made a 10 hour flight bearable."
Cons: "Music selection available was seriously lacking but the movies and games made up for that. Also Air France going into Greece was not as good. Seats had a gap between seat and window, food left much to be desired and service was not as courteous as delta's."
Pros: "Food was nice and plenty. Great movie selection. Very polite crew."
Cons: "The seat was a bit uncomfortable and not big enough."
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Delayed and told die to Air Traffic Cintrol with ninproxtove means to resolve our delay. Poor customer sefvie at JFK...indifferent and lied to us."
Pros: "Plane was clean. Hotel due to missing connection was nice."
Cons: "Flight delays cause cascade of irritable passengers. Flight out of Phoenix delayed due to late departure from previous location. We were told mechanical reasons was the cause of the delay. This caused many passengers to miss their connecting flight in Atlanta. When we arrived after midnight, one gate person was attempting to help 50 people with morning connecting flights and room accommodations. The airline knew 3 hours prior that they would have tired, hungry, frustrated passengers. To then have to wait more than an hour in a line to get a bed and or a meal was too much for most people. There were other smaller examples of how Delta's staff or procedures were not customer centric. I will avoid Delta for travel in the future, and I am getting out of their stock."
Cons: "Our flight was originally scheduled for departure at 7:45 PM. We got an alert stating that the flight was going to be delayed but we were already almost to the airport when I received the first message on my smartphone. We received three additional alerts making our total wait time at the airport 5½ hours before we could approach the gate and board the aircraft. Seating in immediate gate area was not comfortable. Boarding was chaotic at best with very little control and guidance provided by Delta staff. The audio over the PA system was difficult to decipher much of the time. The only other available boarding status information was presented on the screens stationed near the gate and indicated PREMIUM the entire time during our boarding process and was never updated. We literally had to scramble through the crowd to get to the gate desk and get our boarding passes validated so we could board our flight with our group of passengers. Our seating on board the aircraft was thankfully good which is why I rated Comfort as Okay. We were saddled with one more delay after the flight left the gate and taxied briefly down the runway and then sat there for almost an hour. My suggestions to improve customer satisfaction based on my experience would include the following 1. Provide extended alerts for passengers travelling especially if the anticipated delay is known to the airline more than 2 hours before scheduled flight time. 2. Improve seating in the waiting areas near all Delta gates. 3. Re-orient all staff in proper boarding process and utilizing all available resources properly to provide clear and intelligible (not speeding) overhead audio messaging and current boarding status prompts on displays. 4. Maintain or replace audio equipment if necessary to help improve quality of audio messaging in all boarding areas."
Cons: "My email read check into Aeromexico I could not check in the Aeromexico using my phone I was dropped off at the Aeromexico terminal after standing in line for half an hour I find I was in the wrong terminal I needed to be in a different terminal with Delta because Aeromexico even on my reservation read that does not fly to Tampa. I had to find a shuttle to another terminal the shuttlesare not marked it was very confusing"
Pros: "Friendly but efficient. Allowed me to keep my bag with me without a fight."
Pros: "Very friendly flight attendants and for the most part I could understand the pilot when he spoke."
Cons: "Wi-fi should be free. Put chocolate into the snack options."
Pros: "Was a nice flay , thanks"
Cons: "I like the AirFrance seats more than I like the Delta seats. AirFranxe has better entertainment too."
Cons: "No seat assignment prior to arriving at the gate"
Cons: "My connecting flight left 20 min early!!! I missed it because my original flight was 25 min late."
Pros: "Games and videos were good. Food was ok."
Cons: "Not enough leg room. Need at least another 2 inches."
Pros: "Very good."
Cons: "Snack food not health.Cold and I lost my glasses in the boarding lounge and found the lost and found difficult to fill in as I didn't know area code. It took me a while to get I have not had a reply"
Pros: "I was traveling with my young daughter (3 years old) and wife. The crew was really welcoming and accommodative of us. My little girl got the Delta wings pin (including a second one when she lost the first one), and was able to visit the flight deck. Extra kudos for my daughter being able to see a female pilot! :-)"
Cons: "Made me check a small bag and let others carry on 2 and3 bags very rude"
Pros: "The passenger seated next to me with a sense of humor about our situation."
Cons: "For some reason when I booked my flight, for this leg of it, I had "get seat assignment at gate". Once I got my seat assignment I thought I had a window seat: however, when I boarded the plane, I realized that I was in the very last seat of the plane in the window position, but no window. I was crammed in next to a wall and claustrophobic the whole way as I couldn't see anything, couldn't recline at all because behind me was the bathroom, and the engine roared at times in my ears to where I couldn't hear the passenger next to me when we tried to have conversation as the engine was right outside my "wall". We joked, when we could hear each other, that we must've pissed someone at Delta off the last time we flew them. I have no idea why I had to get my seat assignment at the gate for this particular flight, or why I was put in the 'flying coffin' seat, but it made for a very unpleasant experience. Why even have that seat in the plane? Everyone pays a lot of money to fly these days and deserves better than that seat when doing so. just take those two seats out and give everyone else a little more leg room = much better passenger experience for everyone...my suggestion if Delta really cares about the quality of passenger experience."
Cons: "No entertainment and only pretzel and peanuts available"
Pros: "I enjoyed their entertainment movie choices!"
Cons: "I did not enjoy their food it was simple without taste. Crew member did not know what kind of chicken was being served!"
Pros: "Flight delayed for four hours, then delayed another hour before we left. Delta won't let you pick your seats, so although we were 3rd in line at the gate, they put my family of four at the rear of the plane. I will never fly Delta again."
Pros: "Arriving and departing flights were at totally opposite ends of airport"
Cons: "My suitcase was damaged(torn through!)"
Pros: "After flying American Delta was an miracle. I didn't have to spend the night in the airport. It was on time. Everyone was nice & helpful. Easy."
Pros: "Great flight. No problems. Everything went smooth from take-off to landing. Got into Tampa early."
Cons: "I could get me phone to connect to the wifi during flight. I have Sprint. The guy next to me with Verizon seemed to have no problem at all."
Cons: "To arrive on time."
Pros: "Service was very good"
Cons: "Flight delayed for one hour which caused us to miss our train. We had the longest check-in queue in the world although we have already checked in online and had our boarding passes in advance. Snack on board was a poor piece of biscuits"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Airport in Vienna was pretty disorganized. Several people from several flights had to be pulled out for additional screening that should have been done earlier. Passengers were confused and frustrated"
Cons: "Flight hopelessly delayed leaving Sarajevo. No effort by staff to connect us or hold flights. Missed connection by 15 min. Would not recommend Austrian Airlines. Delays in all parts of this trip - both coming and going"
Cons: "Passengers should be notified of the process of changing airplanes at Vienna. What a nightmare. We were scheduled for 50 minutes between flights. Not really enough. If we were aware of what was required it may have helped, however the distance we had to walk was rather extreme."
Pros: "Service was outstanding!"
Cons: "There was a mix up about my reservation/ticket. Was stuck at the ticket desk for 45 min"
Pros: "On time take off"
Pros: "The attendants on Austrian air are all very nice and helpful. You can make any request of them or ask any question and they are happy to help. Great customer service. Arrived on time. Also, very good entertainment options!"
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable on Austrian air. The only way I would fly them again would be if I had extra money for the exit rows with more leg room. Food isn't great, but no airline food is really great. Boarding was significantly delayed from what it said on the boarding pass, with no updates. But we arrived on time. Getting luggage after flight at Dulles took a really long time, but I think that is more of an airport issue as getting my luggage from another Austrian airlines flight to another airport was a breeze."
Pros: "Fast flight , friendly staff , ok food"
Cons: "I couldn’t push my seat back and because of that I was awake the whole flight (night flight)"
Cons: "I missed my flight because of the delay in Zurich"
Pros: "I liked the abundant choices for entertainment and the comfortable seating."
Cons: "Some members of the crew weren’t so pleasant. One didn’t speak to me while I was helping my child in the aisle, but rather rudely pushed her out of the way instead of saying excuse me or waiting a moment for her to sit back down into her seat."
Pros: "I liked that the airplane was newer and comfortable. The crew and food was ok."
Cons: "There was no entertainment unless you paid for it. We already pay enough for our tickets to fly and entertainment should be included and not another added expense, especially for families that already pay so much for their flights!"
Pros: "Liked all except the food"
Cons: "Did not like the food. I specifically selected vegeterian meal however was served vegan meal which I did not enjoy"
Cons: "Seats are very small. Plane was cramped. Snack was not very good. Need healthy options."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly, food was decent and the boarding was a breeze."
Pros: "Excellent flight Excellent food"
Cons: "Food was ok. Flight was delayed."
Pros: "all good."
Cons: "austrian airlines female flight attendants have to wear ALL red. it seems a bit much."
Pros: "Staff was friendly, flight was on time"
Cons: "No snacks on flight of 12h 20min?! I was offered the appetizer (pretzel or biscuit - both of 14gr of product inside). This is unacceptable - overseas flights have to have some snacks No eye mask or ear plugs, nor socks for economy class Outdated entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was great. Comfortable in terms of airline travel. Entertainment selection was spectacular given the long flights and the fact I was with three kids. Really pleased!"
Cons: "Food was ok, not great."
Pros: "Short flight and got a snack"
Cons: "Boarding was a hassle"
Cons: "The business class was not really business class, I guess a 3 hour Business Class flight doesn’t have a seating configuration t Like the new A321. With all said Austrian Air is on the top of its field,"
Cons: "Entertainment options are limited. Austrian flight attendants were quite grumpy on this flight."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by three hours due to “technical problems“. We were never updated during the weight and when we were told that the flight was canceled everyone was told to go back to the ticketing area to pick up their luggage and to find other options. When we were almost halfway there we were told to turn around and that the flight in fact was not canceled. The food was mediocre at best in the service on the plane was in adequate. They were understaffed and staff to peer to be stressed and fatigued. The seats were small and cramped and not well padded in the economy section. We are going to be flying on Lufthansa in the spring and will hope that their services are better than what we experienced on Austrian air."
Pros: "I would suggest to make up some how for my lost as I had other problems derived from missing my United Airlines but so far every body has been very understanding. For example selling me a new ticket at a special price or with some benefit - I WILL NEED TO FLY TO VIENNA AND KIEV AGAIN WITHIN 6 MONTHS - otherwise; I doubt I would ever buy a Austrian plane ticket again. I AM FLYING ON POLISH AIRLINES RIGHT NOW OCT 25TH."
Cons: "When I try to make the change of itinerary on Austrian Airlines on the selling web page, they told me to contact the Austrian Airlines, so I did. The Austrian Airlines lady who told me that I would just lose my tickets and that I could not even pay a penalty to avoid such thing, was very VERY RUDE!! As the Austrian Airlines did not offer me an option but losing my plane ticket,"
Pros: "That it is over"
Cons: "Check-in to Canada not possible when passengers have third country passport and Canadian residence card. A combination, although very common, proofed to difficult for AUA personnel. Because of check-in delays lousy seats and miserable overall experience."
Pros: "Make sure your carry on luggage is less then 8 kg. Or you would have to check it at your own cost. The food is OK but the portion is very small. If you want a window or isle seat, it would’ve cost you 30 euro to reserve it. The crew is very nice. I guess because the air fare is very cheap, they need to do everything to make the extra cash."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for 2 hours because a crew member did not have the proper paperwork. This is incompetence. The trip was long enough w/o adding another two hours due to poor planning. This was completely preventable."
Pros: "Everything was nice and smooth. It was on time and the crew they were very nice and very good entertainment."
Cons: "Long transit more than 12H without free accommodation nor meals"
Cons: "We booked Austrian Airlines to Kosice for 6 to play a concert for 3,000 on Thursday night. 4 of our group arrived from ZRH; 2 from LHR. LHR-VIE was late; we ran and arrived in time catch VIE-KSC before it left, but Austrian Air would not allow us to board, despite that the other part of our travel party was already on the plane and alerted both gate staff and on-board staff we were coming and wee had to play a show that night with Arch Enemy. We had to wait 10 hours in VIE & given €12 for food. AA cited "rotational issues". Shockingly, Austrian Air delayed the 2nd flight by another hour "to wait for someone". We had to cancel the show. Really angry"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Cons: "Boarded via stairs, requiring going down stairs to the tarmac, then up the boarding stairs, carrying our bags."
Pros: "Punctuality and amenities on boatd"
Cons: "I used flights between Vienna and Prague several times and in most cases they are delayed."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room in economy. Will fly again."
Pros: "very short layover and my check luggage made it all the way home with no problems"
Pros: "Good food, nice crew, nice screen, new plane"
Pros: "Compared to most American crews the Aus crew was helpful and outstanding."
Cons: "The chicken dinner was not that great and the breakfast was only a muffin, I expected more. On Turkish airlines flight from Ord to Istanbul we got a full breakfast tray."
Cons: "Initial flight was late taking off for no reason except they scheduled too many incoming flights. Made my second flight but my bag did not and had to wait over a day for it while missing a day of work."
Pros: "No unnecessary waiting. Excellent service!!!"
Pros: "Easy online check-in and boarding pass access also linked to wallet."
Cons: "I was not aware of additional luggage charges when I booked my ticket. It would be helpful to have a warning about that and the fact that if you do not prepay online you are charged double. I also was not aware of the type of a ticket I booked, e.g. Economy light and what it meant for luggage fees."
Pros: "Nice crew, lots of entertainment options (movies especially). Seats recline very far back, nice..."
Cons: "Ground crew was a big bottleneck and Austrian security did not help."
Pros: "Fast and short flight between Vienna and Warsaw. Not much good or bad."
Cons: "Shuttle bus from the terminal took awhile to leave to the plane. No air conditioning to the shuttle. Very hot. Was uncomfortable."
Cons: "Flight cancelled morning of the flight and our direct flight on Austrian Air turned into a flight on Lufthansa with a layover in Munich. Not pleased with their handling of the situation and their very blasé customer service"
Pros: "The Capain kept us well nformed"
Cons: "4 hours trip, international, and only food to purchase."
Cons: "Business class on the 3.5 hour flight was just blocking the middle seat in the front of the plane. No leg room, narrow seats. My husband is 6’4”” with wide shoulders. His legs do not fit and therefore extend into the aisle. Flight attendants were constantly bumping into his shoulders. Very cramped We were not aware of this configuration."
Pros: "the crew was attentive."
Cons: "the seats are extremely crammed, the boarding process was so disorganized people were yelling at the staff...anyone they could find to vent. boarding passes had to be re-scanned, people had to be removed-assigned seats and no explanation was given"
Cons: "I am disappointed that BA has moved over to a few for service refreshments policy. It appeared that nothing was being offered for free- not even tea or coffee which in my opinion is below par for an airline like BA."
Pros: "Clean plan that was only slightly delayed"
Cons: "I was charged for water on a 4+ hour flight. That’s unheard of! Also, the seats didn’t even recline. I will never fly British Airways again"
Pros: "BA always has a wonderful crew and I really enjoy flying with them!"
Cons: "One of my bags didn’t arrive. Hopefully it will be delivered to me as they promised ☹️"
Pros: "Pilot kept us informed of delay status - gross delay b/c of French air traffic strike."
Cons: "Ran out of food, slowest beverage serve ever experienced. NO staff greeting passengers who were very late and missing connections (about 3/4 of passengers) insane and grossly inefficient boarding system was mass chaos - boarded passenger in buses by priority leaving some buses 90% empty with large crowds waiting to board."
Pros: "on time, safe, not crowded,"
Cons: "no water or anything without paying extra. blase crew."
Pros: "Good schedules and reliable flights."
Cons: "Is there anything that America does poorly that the UK will not follow with? Does BA really wish to compete with Easyjet? No meals on a 3.5 hour flight? Extra payments for everything? Sorry, I will not fly Delta or United transatalantic because I have a choice. I guess I should switch back to Lufthansa or Swiss."
Pros: "British Airways is flying done right. They are a first class carrier, even when you're flying in coach!"
Pros: "Lucked out with a pretty empty flight. Food was actually good and there was ice cream which was quite a nice perk."
Pros: "The inflight crew was great. The film sound failed part of the way into the flight."
Cons: "The boarding was chaotic and confused. Many passengers complained. But the MUCH bigger issue was we weren't told until we got to the airport that NO bags were included as part of the fare. We had three (we are traveling around the world). Yes, when I looked back at the bottom of the reservation there was a note that said bags not included, but as this is such a significant thing, I think it should be made much clearer. I direct feature films and travel a great, great deal. I rarely make my own reservations, to be fair, but I still think this is worth noting. In the end I just bumped my wife and I up to Business class, but for others who can't afford it, I think you should make this clearer. I will write to your facebook page etc later in the hope you will get the message. That said, again, your flight crew was great."
Cons: "Flight was no better than a low cost airline. Almost 4h flight with no food/snack and NO DRINKS."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Pay for food on BA? They didn't even offer free water."
Cons: "Not even a glass of water?"
Pros: "British Airways is what flying used to be. They are on time, polite, have great service, food and entertainment. The blankets, pillows and headphones are finished free of charge as are the meals that I thought were good. The personal entertainment systems include something for everyone. I highly recommend British Airways."
Cons: "Londoners operate at cooler temperatures than us Florida residents and I was freezing in a sweater and blankets on the flight from London to Tampa. The cabin could have been warmed up a bit."
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "My bag was not delivered. What bothered me the most was that the representative told me the bag would be delivered to my house the next day. Then they say they want to know what is in the luggage. Why? Does it matter? The two reps were clueless."
Pros: "crew very accommodating."
Cons: "Bad food, very small space in seats."
Pros: "Flight was on time and there was in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was very disorganized."
Cons: "No meal included on my second leg of my trip..had to pay for it...but my booking confirmation clearly indicated meal included. Misleading and will never travel with BA again."
Cons: "Not even a cup of coffee! WOW. they charge and nickle and dime you to death. I had to buy a seat to be guaranteed to sit next to my wife. the base price for the flight was reasonable but then they added extra charges that were almost 1/2 more. the baggage charge was high. If I have my choice would not fly BA again."
Cons: "Paid extra for mediocre seats"
Cons: "Didn't even offer you a bag of peanuts!!! Weak!!"
Pros: "Was able to get a bulkhead seat. Wheelchair staff were very efficient at LHR and TPA. Wheelchair helpers were very efficient and friendly."
Cons: "The there was not a legroom class (or bulkhead seat)that could be pre-specified. I do not really care about other extras extras for premium economy. It is critical to me that I can physically fit into the space between my seat and the one in front."
Pros: "The food was good and enjoyed the entertainment."
Cons: "We had to buy coffee, water, or anything other non-alcohol beverage we wanted to drink. Not sure why on one flight we didn't get free beverage service when all of the other BA flights provided it. When we got to London, we purchased drinks at the airport because we wanted to be prepared for our next flight and then we didn't need it because we had free beverage service."
Cons: "After technical issues, our flight got delayed over 2 hrs. and many passengers missed international connections. BA handled the rescheduling very poorly. They did not offer any compensation and during the delayed flight, they did not even offer us water for free - just as a curtesy. Overall I see this as incapablity and very poor treatment of passengers."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and welcoming."
Cons: "The seats are not comfortable at all. Spaces are too tight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed in the middle of boarding with no AC when board. Luggage was broken. Missed connection to California due to delay."
Cons: "Seats are not that comfortable and food is terrible."
Pros: "The trans-atlantic segment was OK"
Cons: "Between Britain and Europe there is no food, not even water, unless you pay extra: 1.80£, or about $2.40 for a SMALL bottle of water. Flight to Athens is four hours, no free water! Airlines like Ryan or Jetblue do this but charge A LOT LESS than British Air. Shame."
Cons: "Boarding process was confusing because it started so early 50+ minutes prior, but our boarding passes said otherwise, 30 minutes prior."
Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "Would have like wifi so I could plan my trip and do some business."
Pros: "Larger seats, TV Monitors, headphones and pillow immediately available, meals and snacks and in-between water and tea services, Crew was outstanding. Boarding seemed awkward at the last since families and rest of seats load at one time at the last but still doable. I enjoyed my flight. Thank you."
Cons: "Flight was late for more than hours , due to the delate flight a lost the last train in London , I had to paid a Taxi over $ us dollars 106.00. Not in my budget . :( Maria Zoriada York"
Pros: "Flight there was ok."
Cons: "British Airways customer service was terrible. Flight was delayed. We called BA and they told to us to arrive at the later flight and find our connection in London. This was not the right thing to do and we are still not home. We are now stuck in DC, have no clue where our luggage is. BA has provided no information. Not sure why they even have a call line."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Have to pay for even bottled water or coffee."
Pros: "Great crew, loaded early, smooth flight, landed early"
Cons: "Felt abused with petty charges. Charged for WATER- even those peanut packs were not free. Checked luggage fees were up to 100 British pounds per bag. Legroom was barely OK. Entertainment was a decade old system. Not a good value."
Pros: "Punctuality, courtesy, professionalism."
Cons: "No food not even snacks were served"
Cons: "Once arriving in London our airplane didn't have a place to park so that we could be relieved from our flight. We waited, seated in the plane for over 45 minutes and we almost missed our connecting flight. We had to run to the next gate and getting through security checks was a nightmare. The London airport crew seemed to have terrible communication and terrible customer service skills."
Pros: "Very clean craft, Nice staff and smooth flight."
Cons: "Never again will I fly with this airline! Had a horrible flight , food, service going from Chicago to Athens with portion of the plain empty and same thing again back."
Pros: "The food was great and the crew were courteous Overall the service was good"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit unorganized for world class flyers"
Pros: "Athens to London no complementary drinks or snacks on a FOUR hour flight."
Pros: "The crew were great and friendly. The check-in agent put my father's name on notice for assistance in London for his achy knees."
Cons: "We only brought (2 - 1 each) carry on bags and were asked multiple times to check the bags even though they fit easily on the aircraft. We only had one hour to connect in London so we (1) could not risk losing our bags and (2) needed them for our things. Food was only available for purchase as is the case in the US now. British Airways was always a cut above in my eyes, now they are just part of the herd."
Pros: "The service was good. I felt bad for them because of the number of cards they had to process."
Cons: "As of mid-January, any flight less than 5 hours includes no complimentary food or drink. Cash and check are not accepted, and the card processors are slow. This meant the stewards were in the aisle for quite a while dealing with this, and access to the bathrooms was hampered."
Cons: "They had me change my seat so couple could sit together. Then gave my special gluten free meal to the man sitting in my former seat. They never checked and I had to inform crew that I never got my special food. They did get me something to eat finely. I was not very happy. Kathleen M Quinn"
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hours in Athens due to London fog. BA did nothing for passengers with connections. No information given nor attempts to hold connections. Missed our connection by 5 minutes. Could see the airplane pulling out after RUNNING through the airport for 15 minutes to catch it. There were 7 passengers on this connection. This was unacceptable"
Cons: "Just getting around in Gatwick airport was really difficult. Lack of signage and people to ask. Very confusing."
Pros: "Crew was great an accomadating and cheery."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful so unpretentious and responsive."
Cons: "The food was not that good. I don’t eat potato salad out. The pasta was not flavorful. I wish airlines would switch to butter cookies and skip chocolate chip."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours due to mechanical issues. Missed our connection to LAX in Toronto due to the delay. Poor communication from on the ground staff regarding the rebooking. When we actually got our rebooked flight, it was for two days later. Took multiple calls to booking line to get a more reasonable flight out the following day. The hotel they put us up in was over 40 minutes away too. To add insult to injury, when we finally got to LAX, our luggage didn't make it and didn't get delivered until two days later. Overall very poor experience."
Cons: "The Crew Was rude. the seats were small, NO TV's, for a 10 hour flight. Had to "rent" a iPad. I was not able to download movies on my own device. Had to pay for drinks, on an international flight, Are you kidding me!!?? I will never fly Air Canada Rouge again. Very disappointing."
Cons: "The seats are way to close, I am short and I had no room. There is no way those seats are far approved, cause they're is no way in an emergency people would be able to crawl out if those seats. There was no snack at all, not even pretzels, nothing."
Pros: "the staff was wonderful"
Cons: "no entertainment on flight 10 hours bored to death"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Everything was slow. We had been in the air for more than an hour before any drinks were offered. Also what kind of decent airline charges for alcohol on an 11-hour transatlantic flight? The entertainment options were limited, especially if you didn't bring your own device with the Air Canada app installed as there were no screens in the seats. The aircraft interior was dated and worn. The crew were curt and not helpful. I just expected better from the national airline of Canada."
Pros: "The crew were nice."
Cons: "It was just a long flight. Food was mediocre. Not a lot of elbow room to eat."
Cons: "The overall service was poor. One male flight attendant was very rude and disrespectful to two elderly passengers. It was NOT David. Charging $10 for entertainment was is terrible!!! Restrooms were filthy!!!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "No food served on a 5.5 hour flight."
Pros: "Service was good. Friendly and responsive."
Cons: "Food was very mediocre. Entertainment was ok once you figured out how to load the app, but there were fewer choices of content than I expected. More importantly, this was only two of five AC flights we had on this trip that departed on time, and when we got to the gate, the plane was stopped 10 feet short of the gate, so everyone had to reseat so the plane could be towed to the gate. I was really surprised at the consistent delays across the board."
Cons: "movie selection is poor and using your own device isnt that enjoyable. Girl at counter was demeaning."
Cons: "There was a yappy dog on the flight which the owner kept outside of the kennel for much of the flight. This is a serious security and health safety breach. One of the flight attendants said "I have a dog so I understand" and let he continue to kee the dog outside the kennel. Flight from hell."
Pros: "The staff were friendly even though the flight was completely full"
Pros: "We didn't die, so that's a plus. Flight staff were nice and attentive"
Cons: "Seriously, no personal tv's. The ticket prices were already expensive, but an addition cost to rent an iPad? That's crazy! Also, your wifi on the plane isn't strong enough to download the app, forcing people to rent the iPads. I see what you're doing, air canada, and it sucks. Next trip to Europe will definitely not be with your airline!"
Cons: "11 hour flight with no feasible entertainment options."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The seats were hard and not comfortable. There was no entertainment on back of the seats."
Cons: "Cramped, bathroom smelled and no mvies unless you brought your own tablet or rented one which they didnt inform us of ahead of the flight"
Pros: "Ok so I download the app and horrible content. Not alot of options and then you have to rent an iPad? They should b giving.those.out free"
Pros: "I was able to use my iPhone, good thing I had an iPhone"
Cons: "I wasn't told to download the app before I got on the plane. It was a ten hour flight with limited entertainment on my iPhone. I was rebooked on SAS with my flight to Europe. SAS Entertainment and Food was much better than AirCanadas Entertainmnet and Food on the long flight from Montreal to Copenhagen."
Pros: "That this flight wasn't as bad as the rest of my trip with them."
Cons: "no room , overpriced, poor entertainment, old plane, dirty bathroom, no personal fan/ air vent, so so food."
Pros: "I can't think of anything I'd really like an Air Canada . Even when they initially told me I needed to buy the wine and finally gave me one bottle for free, it really tasted like vinegar . I couldn't drink it ,"
Cons: "The worst part of thiis experience with Air Canada was the fact that there was no entertainment on board . They are supposedly switching to this system where you are supposed to download the Air Canada entertainment app on your phone or your tablet to be able to watch anything . Even though I supposedly had free Wi-Fi in The Athens airport, I was unable to download the app so I spent 11 hours with nothing to do on my way to Montreal. I wonder what they expect elderly or very young flyers to do . Most of these don't have tablets or smart phones . They did have some tablets for rent for $10, but not enough for everyone. Would not recall mend this airline for a transatlantic flights without checking whether the airplane has onboard entertainment first ."
Pros: "Really friendly crew."
Cons: "The plane doesn't have an entertainment system and the seats are uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly."
Cons: "The seats were very small. I was flying Premium Economy, so it was tolerable, but my daughters were flying economy with very hard seats, very little room, no snacks and no entertainment. It was the Gulag! I can't imagine it being worse for them. On a short domestic flight, it may be tolerable, but for a long international flight across the pond, it was a nightmare! Also, please stop serving those hot pockets as a snack and please stop charging for potato chips and snacks unless you plan to serve a substantial meal! A 400 calorie meal is not going to keep anyone satisfied for 10 hours!"
Pros: "Plenty of beverages provided and friendly crew."
Cons: "Entertainment app had to be downloaded prior to take-off to access many of the entertainment features such as movies."
Pros: "A very nice Air Canada person from Toronto Airport really helped us speed up the baggage check-in process, because we were late. Then, in the terminal, the crew was waiting for us even if we were so late ( 5 mins before landing time)"
Cons: "We had to pay for snacks. Snacks should be included in the high price of the tickets (about 500 CAD $). We ordered and paid extra for food snacks, but some of the items were not available even they were displayed in the food menu/catalog. We asked for a blanket for my daughter who was sleeping but Air Canada didn't have any blanket !! After we boarded, we realized that we didn't have space to put any hand baggages ! We are a family of 5 and we didn't have space to put even one hand baggage! Unacceptable!"
Cons: "The delay, but that was not your fault."
Cons: "Lack of entertainment . Unfriendly staff. Flight was long and crew did not ask passengers to close shades in order to sleep."
Pros: "India ( flight attendant) provided very poor customer service during flight. I have been a nurse for 24 years and i simply asked for a cool cloth for a gentleman sitting next to me that was feeling ill and very pale. India returned with 5 emesis bags and no cloth and never once came back to check on the gentleman!!! I really wish it was not a full flight because i would have advised him to puke all over everything. How hard was it to provide a cool cloth?? Really? I know first class has wash cloths and that was an easy request. And the fact that she never came back to see if we needed anything or to tell us she did not have a cloth for him. POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE!! I will think twice about flying Air Canada again. Thank god for good citizeans willing to help strangers in a time of need."
Cons: "Poor ccustomer service by flight attendants and no follow up on ill passengers."
Cons: "They need bottled water. Flight was so dry and they were serving tap water. How cheap"
Cons: "Waited 1 hour for my bag only to be told that it was put on a different flight. They couldn't tell me this during my flight or while I was waiting? They said it would arrive by morning the next day. I call multiple times to get an update and no one has an update. 6pm rolls around without a single update so tired of calling I drive back to the airport to get a hold of a person. Person says delivery company has it and gives a phone number. Call delivery company and they have no idea what i'm talking about say to go back to the airport. Bag finally shows up 12 hours after expected without a single call or update. Never flying air canada again!"
Pros: "I liked how you had movies to watch although they were outdated. The bathrooms were okay."
Cons: "You have to download an entertainment app and if no one tells you to then you are screwed. The food was awful, like baby food for adults. The chairs need to be able to move back more. The flight delays are just wrong."
Pros: "The crew was really nice and on top of things. Prompt service and very pleasant."
Cons: "The wifi movies and tv were not captioned in English for the deaf and hard of hearing. Accessibility was not provided."
Pros: "The Air Canada agents and staff were very helpful and accommodating to the best of their ability. I hugged one female AC Agent in TO as she was so kind and helpful, and told her she was the highlight of my day."
Cons: "The processing of Air Canada passengers to the connecting Gates and through Customs for USA international flights was a nightmare. It was very disorganized, with hundreds of passengers herded like cattle, poor communication, customs slips not provided on the AC Flight before landing so as to be completed in advance. There was staff shortage, and not done in a timely manner so as to make your connecting Flight. It has truly been a most stressful experience for me this and each time I have to go through Toronto to make a connecting flight , and I will avoid this flight plan in the future at all cost."
Cons: "Have you heard of an International flight without entertainment? That's just the surface. Our flight from Athens to Toronto was delayed 4hrs causing us to miss our connection to NYC. When customer service was called for assistance to get another flight, we found there were no flights out after 8 pm. I appreciate the vouchers for food and hotel. But after 35hr of traveling to NYC we come to find that our luggage was left in Toronto. Traveling with Air Canada was a series of poor customer care and negligence. I was very disappointed."
Cons: "Air Canada ROUGE is very different than Air Canada :("
Cons: "There was no tv and one of the flight attendants was very rude. She acted like it was a chore to talk to us and was rude to other passengers as well."
Pros: "The flight arrived early"
Cons: "The chicken dish was terrible and gave me stomach upset"
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly. I liked that I could choose an exit row seat when I checked in and didn't have to pay extra. The crew was friendly. The plane seemed nice and new"
Cons: "The leg room was a bit tight, and the guy behind me kept putting his knees into my back. I don't know if it was poor seat design or what, but he wasn't particularly tall."
Pros: "Good pilot. Take off and landing were very good. Clear announcements. plane was a comfortable temperature."
Cons: "Not organised on boarding procedures. Anyone could have gotten thro. Flight attendants wouldn't come by to pick up trash often enough. No movies or TV to watch on an 11 hour flight."
Cons: "Food was terrible - no movie screens - just their ipads, crew wasn't that friendly"
Cons: "The food was the worst. Did not feel it was even edible. For an 11 hour international flight there were zero amenities. If you wanted to watch a movie, you had to pay $10 per person for an iPad. You could not even use your own & link to their wifi unless you are in their earned points program."
Cons: "No free entertainment, no meals, or snacks"
Pros: "The idea of READ BOOKS via the in-plane entertainment system. Very limited book choices so not of interest, and often interrupted as the system kept dropping. Great opportunity though to expand Vs boring and mindless TV shows and low rated straight to video view movies."
Cons: "Delayed, food (best not to touch), seat PC power charge plugs didn't work, was NOT allowed to use wireless PC mouse !!! (1st ever in 20 years of off-line PC use to work on planes), the seats were old and smelled, the in-plane access to movies plug-in didn't work, the TV shows kept disconnecting, crew had no idea how to correct, Montreal airport was dirty and poorly maintained, the one restaurant with service had the worst food I ever ate with promised internet access and PC / Phone charging facilities NOT working. Amazing stuff !!. So awful it now seems funny !...Almost missed my days in and out Sanaa Airport in Yemen with Yemen Air !!!"
Cons: "Barely any entertainment for the 11 hour flight because no one advised me to download their app to access their small selection. Also, first international flight that wanted to charge for beer (highest price I've seen)."
Pros: "Attendants were conscientious, hospitable."
Pros: "You had the latest HBO shows"
Cons: "Staff was a bit rude in at check in to get onboard as I was one of the last passengers to board the plane."
Pros: "Everything was great in the premium seats (first row)."
Cons: "The seats could use a foot rest to help passengers sleep better."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment available"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and the food was pretty good."
Cons: "There was no music/entertainment provided by Air Canada. No flights over 4 hours should be without monitors for movies and/or music. Being told in-flight that we could have downloaded the Air Canada app was inexcusable as one couldn't download anything during the flight. I've been on many flights and the only other plane that didn't have entertainment or music options was going from Cape Cod, MA to Nantucket; a 20 minute flight on a Cessna. I was not expecting any music or entertainment on that flight, however. My wife and I were very disappointed in Air Canada from this perspective. We have 4 children and would pay extra on different airlines would never fly it again. We were grateful from Toronto to DFW there was entertainment, though."
