Shortly before we landed at Manila, we were informed that in order to meet international flight rules and regulations that insecticide will be sprayed we were advised to cover our nose,as a medical personnel I see it not good cos it can trigger an Asthmatic attack in a known asthmatic patient ,it was a lovely journey"

Cons: "Food and ways to provide chairs - avoiding providing wheel chairs and food requirement."
Pros: "Boarding, the welcome on board, the food choice and quality were all excellent. The seat was comfortable and I got a few hours sleep. The entertainment screen was big and clear, and the choice of films was good."
Cons: "The choice of films and tv programmes, was good, but before watching each one i chose, I had to endure a couple off minutes of an advert- the same one every time."
Pros: "The entertainment options."
Cons: "I didn't have any complaints. I thought everything went very well."
Pros: "Excellent crew and service"
Pros: "Excellent service and in time flights."
Pros: "Crew was exceptional and in-flight entertainment options superb. Meals were well apportioned and delicious."
Cons: "Seats were a little narrow, especially the middle ones but to be expected when flying economy."
Pros: "The crew was excellent in their mannerisms, efficiency, service and never ending smiles."
Cons: "The flight was not overly crowded and many of the passengers were seated with three people per set of seats while others were seated individually and able to spread out with much more comfort. I felt that when the flight crew saw this they could have made everyone much more comfortable by switching people to two people per row thus giving them more room especially on such a long flight."
Pros: "Once I made it to my seat, easily slipped back into a meditative trance."
Cons: "Unannounced delays. Waited in a line, then another one. Probably just different security protocol than I'm used to."
Cons: "Boarding from rear to front."
Pros: "The sanitizing of the aircraft was beyond expectations. The personal wipes were a plus so we could clean the areas around our seats to our satisfaction. The individual snack bags are a great idea to minimize handling. The boarding rear to front should have been in place years ago and the deplaning was about normal front to rear with distancing."
Cons: "Flight crew dI’d not enforce mask mandate."
Pros: "My flight got delayed twice. Had to get rebooked."
Cons: "Appreciate the communication from pilot when on tarmac"
Pros: "Great airline. Crew was great. Comfort was good. Arrived on time"

Pros: "Helpful crew."
Cons: "These planes are tiny. Our equipment was B717."
Pros: "Funny crew members and very friendly captain"
Pros: "Crew was great. Delta auto rebooking caused me to miss my next flight"

Pros: "Amazing crewkeep"
Cons: "Keep going"
Cons: "Seats did not match seat map"
Pros: "Great food and bev service"
Pros: "Friendly and cheerful!"
Pros: "The crew was fine, flight was completely full and they were very prompt in their service. The power outlets didn’t work. The lights were on, but when I plugged in they didn’t charge."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable. Seats very close together for a flight that lasts over 5 hours."
Pros: "The crew was nice and did the best they could"
Cons: "The flight was late, extremely turbulent, and was spent mostly under 10k feet, so wifi was available for only a very short time"
Pros: "Got to London on-time (early, actually) and safely. The in flight meal was okay. The leg room in comfort plus was great, the mobile app was awesome, and the staff (check-in, gate, cabin and flight deck) were professional and friendly all around."
Cons: "The leg room was great, but as a broad-shouldered guy, the width of the seat was miserable. Unfortunately, the Delta 767 doesn't offer any upgrade for a wider seat beyond Delta One, and my employer won't spring for that. Too bad there isn't a premium economy option. Also, the entertainment unit in the seat next to mine malfunctioned, which you wouldn't think would impact me that much except that because it was "seeing" touches randomly throughout the flight, the screen would turn on, off, brighter, dimmer, play random stuff, and just generally be as annoying as possible to everyone nearby throughout an overnight flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed until it made me miss my connection"
Pros: "Ease of check in and friendly people"
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)."
Pros: "I like that I was able to request a window seat and was obliged to get another one."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and I had anxiety about being at my destinations on time because I had to travel another hour away without knowing if my ride would be able to wait for me. However, I was booked on another plane that wasn't damaged which got me there on time,but once I arrived my luggage was no where to be found. I was promised my luggage on the same day,but I didn't get it until 11:30pm that night from a 2:40pm flight. I had to go out and spend money on toiletries,night wear and my medicine because of not having my luggage. Just totally disgusted by the overall experience and wouldn't wish it on anyone."
Pros: "The crew was nice. The cabin very clean. Flight very comfortable"
Cons: "The landing was a little rough"
Pros: "Nothing. My flight got canceled."
Cons: "Delta offered nothing for canceling my flight, rescheduling me on one over 24 hours later with two layovers to Miami. I lost money on hotel reservations and never even made it on my trip. Couldn’t reach delta for over 24 hrs to confirm whether I’d get a refund or not"
Pros: "The plane, the seating, and the service was outstanding, great entertainment setup with the movies."
Pros: "The service and non stop smooth ride. Boarding was a new experiance taking a bus to the plane. Was quick and crew helpful storing my carryon. Everyone very helpful."
Pros: "The boarding was excellent. The staff was very friendly. The plane was clean."
Cons: "I wasn’t able to upgrade my seats because they were booked through a third party. I’ve never sat that far back in a airline."
Pros: "On time, pretty friendly crew"
Cons: "Too small a plane for that long a trip. Bathrooms were VERY small & rare."
Cons: "Customs officials are incredibly un-helpful and slow. I almost missed the next flight because of how slow was that part. I hope Delta can speak up for the passengers, because we cannot express that to these rude people."
Pros: "Short flight."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and it set off a slew of connection problems."
Cons: "The prices of the available snacks."
Pros: "New plane with knight entertainment screens at all seats!"
Cons: "Delayed, bit crew was friendly and efficient!"

Pros: "friendly flight crew"
Pros: "The infotainment screen on back of headrests."
Pros: "On time,smooth good servive"
Pros: "Unlimited snacks and drinks..."
Cons: "The mediocre upgrade."
Pros: "One male attendant from the first class cabin - super sweet and attentive to our needs even tho we're not seating in the premium cabin"
Cons: "Junior attendants in economy comfort seat - so lazy and whiny!"
Pros: "I fly Delta Airlines 2x a year and if I had to go on this flight experience alone I would never fly with them again. This particular flight attendant. Brunette who wore all red~ like she had a personal conflict with us from the moment we walked on the plane. We were sitting in the back and could hear the things that she was saying about my grandson and myself. She was rude, snotty, had a sassy mouth. I was COMPLETELY APPALLED as to the way we were treated by her. It was a long flight to have someone you felt was bullying you the whole flight to the moment we were exiting the plane. Karma will come back to her one day..."

Karma will come back to her one day..."
Pros: "The in-flight service was good."
Cons: "We were delayed to redo maintenance paperwork from a previous repair. This should not hold up flights and cause the plan to loose its slot for takeoff"
Cons: "Probably the roughest, bumpiest landing over ever experienced. The brakes were grinding very loudly during taxi (I overheard several other passengers comment on this). The plane was very cramped and the air smelled. Thank God it was such a short flight."
Pros: "plane was farily empty. Who doesn't like that, other than Delta, haha. Nice workers, smooth flight."
Cons: "Delta comfort was very tight. I'm 6 foot tall and my knees were hitting the chair in front of me the whole flight."
Pros: "Delta is cheap, probably for a reason. Also had no food available on a 3 hour flight."
Cons: "Delta lost our bags immediately. We were two hours early and had more than an hour between our connecting flights. Our connecting flights were literally next door to each other. However, our bag didn't make it to the connecting flight. No excuse, no explanation. We were on a 3 night vacation, and we didn't get our bags for more than 30 hours."
Pros: "Crew was very courteous"
Cons: "Nothing special about Comfort Plus for a 1 hour trip except the extra room and free booze which I do not drink. Pretzels? Why bother"
Pros: "Nothing. Flight was 5 hours delayed. Finally rebooked and still missed all connections because that flight was late departing. All legs of this trip on delta were delayed. Lousy service ast attempting to resolve situation. Given a choice, I do not choose Delta as a first choice airline to fly."
Cons: "It’s very very poor and flight radar is below average"
Pros: "Quick, comfortable and easy"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit clunky"
Pros: "The boarding was a pleasant experience and we got to check in our hand luggage."
Cons: "The vegetarian food options were a little strange."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and friendly."
Cons: "Food was not that good, flight was over an hour late causing us to miss our connection in Frankfurt. Consequently we were also charged for our car pickup in Prague. Overall, not impressed with Lufthansa."
Cons: "I have flown Lufthansa several times to Bangalore. My complaint forever has been their baggage service. The bags for priority travelers takes 30-60 mins to arrive. If LH 754 gets delayed going into Bangalore, it creates a bottleneck with Emirates and Etihad arriving at about the same time."
Pros: "See my earlier remarks"
Cons: "All great"
Pros: "Leg room"
Pros: "What more can you expect for economy travel?"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "Nice and pleasant crew Very responsive and kind"
Cons: "My luggage did not arrive on the flight from Frankfort to Athens. The Lost Luggage staff was very helpful, but the process took a long, long time. Then when my luggage arrived the next morning, no one was staffing the Gold kiosk, so it took another hour and a half to get my luggage. (We had received an email saying that the luggage would be available at 7:30; no one was there to provide it to us)"
Pros: "seats were pretty comfortable"
Cons: "reading light didn't work. I wanted to read my book and it was impossible. ran out of choice in the final meal"
Pros: "Red wine was OK, passed on the free sandwich as last time it didn’t agree with me"
Cons: "Flight was over an hour late and no compensation from the airlines."
Pros: "Best part was how Lufthansa took care of travellers whose connection time was short. They had ground crew waiting and who escorted us through customs, and then drove us to the gate. This is how passengers should be treated. ~ Excellent movie selection ~ Great flight attendants"
Pros: "Flight was good. Boarding was delayed, but the time was made up during flight. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "It is always about baggage. Bags with priority tags should atleast be sent on a "priority". With LH this never is the case. Priority tagged bags are sometimes the last ones to come on the belt."
Pros: "movie selection"
Cons: "I missed my lufthanza connection"
Pros: "Overall clean and efficient. Good service. Good craft and seating."
Cons: "Touch functionality of the entertainment system didn't work too well. Didn't get the second meal as I fell asleep around that time."
Pros: "Fight attendants' courtesy"
Cons: "seats were tiny and boarding was a disaster. Overhead luggage space was tiny and I only had a 15" laptop bag.."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The layover was a little too short and had to run from one terminal to another in frankfurt."
Pros: "Good flight crew, professional, glad I arrived on time"
Cons: "The entertainment systemis was sub par."
Pros: "Crew was warm and considerate."
Cons: "Flight was jam packed and a huge guy sat next to me and made my entire flight miserable. In economy, huge guys are a big inconvinience as they spill over your space (which is already cramped). The passenger in front pushes her seat back and when i do the same, someone from behind says it makes them uncomfortable. Wish crue can take care of these situations."
Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "Many things. Starting from the online/mobile check in process via United airlines. I was not given any other option but to check in through the United website. On that website I was not allowed to check in for my Lufthansa flights and i was stuck with seats I did not want in my 2 long intercontinental flights. This has happened before. Lufthansa has no option to check in online if my first flight leg is united. This is a very big drawback and also the reason I would not prefer to fly Lufthansa again. United is bringing the quality down."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good variety entertainment"
Cons: "Every time LH lands in Bangalore, the priority bags are never given priority. Secondly, my bags were opened and items from inside the bag were taken, like pants and shoes. The luggage strap around the bag was removed and stolen."
Pros: "The schedule"
Cons: "Could not cancel flight and was charged for it."
Pros: "Air hostess J. Haupt was the friendliest of all. She made the flight definitely more enjoyable."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Upgrade to Economy Plus. Very comfortable seats, I am a fan! Excellent Indian veg food."
Cons: "Taking back the headsets 30 mins before landing."
Cons: "The seats were too close together."
Cons: "Waste 3 hours in connecting flight."
Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "Operation system"
Pros: "The overall experience was great."
Pros: "Loved the little sandwiches!"
Cons: "The check-in process in Paris was frustrating and slow. The boarding process was also a bit chaotic."
Pros: "Flight was good overall."
Cons: "Because of a mess-up on United's part, Lufthansa did not have my spl meal."
Pros: "Don't like anything"
Cons: "Bad food delivery crew members always restless mood"
Cons: "Connecting flight to MUC was cancelled without notification, this was corrected too late to get me a different flight from ATH to MUC. So then I had to miss MUC to LAX. Instead i was transferred to an Airfrance flight 12 hours later."
Pros: "Selection of movies in the entertainment section."
Pros: "Quick flight, efficient boarding."
Cons: "Seats weren't very comfortable, but it was a short flight. Our layover was too short and our passport verification process almost made us miss our flight."
Pros: "Lufthansa is the airline for long-distance travel!"
Cons: "Everything was great. On our flight over the pond, and back, the food was great it was comfortable, and the airplane had the best in technology."
Cons: "They lost my luggage. I don't understand why there isn't an arrival scan and how airlines don't take more responsibility for bags"
Cons: "I thought lying while smiling went out of the airline business 20 years ago. Lufthansa rebooked my husband and I - telling us all would be well. That was the start of one of the worst travel days ever - running through airports; and culminating the end of an anniversary trip with my husband and I having to sit separately in center seats for 8.5 hours. Perhaps spoiled food or the lack of the pre-ordered gluten-free meals left one of us ill for the week since. Days of headaches with Lufthansa leading up to these two flights - online, on the phone and in person. We ended up on a full United flight with some of the most humorless in-flight staff ever."
Pros: "the polite smiling faces made the trip good. A truly exceptional crew. Always patient and always smiling. Offered their services enthusiastically as if they really cared about me. Bravo!!!"
Cons: "Sat on Tarmac too long prior to take off"
Pros: "Lufthansa is one of the best in the world at transatlantic flights. There was extra room in business so they relocated me to a spot where I could have a bit more extra space. The food was wonderful. The service was wonderful. The flight left on time and arrived early. The seat was comfy. Really nice flight."
Cons: "Um, have to think. They could find a better ice cream? They should have turned on the outlets earlier so I could recharge my phone?"
Pros: "Pleasant crew."
Cons: "Annoying kids in seats behind us :( Not enough leg room for someone over 6 feet tall."
Pros: "Food and service were excellent. I received instant upgrade as I went to board the aircraft. This was a first for me. A little ticket was printed out when I scanned my initial boarding pass at the automated entrance to the jetway. The ticket said I was reassigned a seat in premium economy (for free)!"
Cons: "There was nothing to not like about this flight!"
Pros: "The crew and in flight experience were excellent."
Cons: "Terminal procedures, particularly a tarmac delay and understaffed customs and security personnel, jeopardized my London Heathrow connection in spite of the 80 minute layover. Itineraries with less than a two-hour connection should be discontinued as a fraudulent misrepresentation of the passenger's likely success. I will never fly through Heathrow again."
Cons: "I took Lufthansa round-trip from the US to Italy. One of the worst long-trip flying experiences I've had. Bad airplanes, with even smaller seats than US carriers, terrible service (attendants were not friendly or pleasant), terrible food. On one of the long flights, the cabin temperature was 75F and passengers were perspiring the whole flight. I will not take Lufthansa again."
Pros: "The chairs were the comfiest I've ever flown in!! Amazing"
Pros: "This Transavia Airlines is not good at all."
Cons: "Many things cheaper does mean better."
Pros: "The crew is excellent but the seats are not comfortable enough. There should be a way to balance money and comfort,not just placing people in seats they do not fit into"
Cons: "Nothing,just the seats. Cleanliness was perfect"
Pros: "Impressive service... amazing crew, very friendly and professional"
Pros: "Muslim food"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Slow in refuelling, got us delayed for 40-"
Cons: "Seats in economy section are very close together . There is not enough room for knees...especially for such a long trip."
Cons: "I was seated next to the restroom, which is not a pleasant experience for an international flight."
Cons: "Too hot inside the aircraft"
Pros: "The friendliness of the crew"
Pros: "The crew is really welcoming"
Cons: "The seats are too narrow and a bit too hard"
Pros: "the drinks"
Cons: "seat reservation. having to pay for luggage...."
Cons: "We were allowed to choose our seats from SFO to Amsterdam but not for the return flight. I like to be able to choise my seats when I book the flight. Choosing seats 24 hours before is not convenient when traveling for the return trip."
Pros: "The flight crew was so friendly and the food was really good."
Pros: "Crew was ok."
Cons: "Screens need a serious upgrade, my seat didn’t recline all the way nor could it be restored to an upright position. Not very comfortable and I paid for a seat upgrade."
Pros: "The crew was great but the seat wasn't as comfortable and didn't have much leg room."
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 called for a crew member 5 times and waited 25 minutes for anyone to help me with just some water. I had to get up and go to the very back of the plane to ask for some water. The plane was hot and no air to be found. This was all after we had to get back off the plane before takeoff. It was terrib"
Cons: "The check in desk was late opening & the carry on luggage size was smaller than advertised on their website, so it had to be put in the hold. Open on time to prevent less stress to travelers & give more accurate information about cabin luggage."
Cons: "Need more leg room!!! Larger meals needed."
Cons: "Inflight was better than I expected. But needs upgrading air crafts."
Pros: "Crew's hospitality, good music, good destination material, terminal info, good system overall"
Cons: "Less legroom, storage space, bad food, few movie options."
Pros: "MCR airport Mert & Greet parking was smooth and efficient."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours due to bad weather. Additional baggage payment to Air Baltic did not show up on the KLM system and we had to pay again. Nowhere to address this with Air Baltic even in Tallin. Handlers seem uninterested and refer us to ‘the website to address the issue.....’"
Pros: "Efficient boarding system, clearly signposted. Professional staff"
Cons: "Our lougage did not arrive"
Pros: "The flight was perfect! Great food,movies and I even got to sleep !"
Cons: "All was well!"
Pros: "Time and Good clean place.. in This case airpöane.."
Cons: "It was not entreteiment st all"
Pros: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight. KLM #605 from Amsterdam to SFO---please pass the praise to all of them."
Cons: "Food had only vegetarian choices. No charging place and ambiance was noisy"
Pros: "Interior of the plane was clean. Smooth landing."
Cons: "Pilot did not avoid turbulence"
Pros: "Arrived Early!"
Cons: "Left Late :-)"
Pros: "Service, technology"

Pros: "Crew were friendly. Flight was comforyable smooth and on time. Nice snack."
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."
Cons: "They stole my money"
Pros: "Easy Boarding"
Pros: "Comfort economy well worth the extra."
Pros: "Usual professional and friendly service from my airline of choice for most destinations."
Pros: "newer plane, good staff"
Cons: "need better and more food options, more often"
Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."
Pros: "Timing & efficiency. Good food though only a sandwich."
Cons: "Nothing. Could say there was no entertainment but I didn't want entertainment on such a short flight"
Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliability."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."
Pros: "Excellent service, excellent food."
Pros: "It was a short flight so it was O.K."
Cons: "Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger."
Pros: "Seat space was good for a short flight, inclusive of free snack and drink."
Cons: "Too much overoverhead luggage."
Pros: "We love the flight all the way"
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Economy was very tight! Seats were uncomfortable"
Cons: "Fewer entertainment options than the delta flight. I got excited with that first flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours. was not able to make connecting flight in Amsterdam. No flights from Amsterdam to final destination in the US. Lost one full day. Had to stay overnight. What a cluster mess. Will never fly with KLM airlines and would not recommend. Will spend a little extra money and fly on other airlines......very poor, disorganized, and horrendous flight experience. Buyer beware."
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew professional, food and drinks good and kept coming. I learnt Dutch on the in-flight entertainment system. I was in a good mood talking to another passenger about his new luggage system. This mood was kept and not taken away on the flight."
Cons: "Would be nice if there was wifi on board"
Pros: "All crews are kind, friendly and excellent services, the handling of missed flight is good."
Cons: "The plane is too old lots of things falling apart, toilet door, tv screen and its remote control ect .."
Pros: "Extremely nice crew!"
Cons: "Plane was late departing causing me to miss my connection flight in Dallas and having to pay for a hotel room"
Pros: "We were downgraded from our Business class tickets to Economy Plus because the flight was overbooked. The journey and services were poor. This is for a business class passengers who paid full fair."
Cons: "All problems mentioned above needs to be fixed. We are not flying BA again. We are done with you"
Pros: "The crew were stiff but nice."
Cons: "The Club World seats are ancient and dirty with no storage. You are also staring directly at a stranger. Also British Airways makes you pay to select seats in advance even if you buy Business Class, which is a bit much."
Cons: "British Airways just get the basics right. One carry on one personal item. Friendly staff. Comfy seats. Honestly I don’t know what more I could ask for outside of USB ports."
Pros: "Good service, entertainment screen were good. Food was good."
Pros: "Crew was good. Cramped seating as usual."
Cons: "Extra seat leg and knee room like 4 more inches would make all the difference in the world."
Pros: "Boeing 777 seating is comfortable, other is not so much."
Cons: "not ONE single smile !!!!"
Pros: "Good service, good flight, all on time."
Pros: "The crew was incredible"
Pros: "Crew was great. Accommodating and welcoming."
Cons: "Food quality could have been better. Snack was very poor before landing."
Pros: "The representative at Miami took forever to get a wheelchair. She did not pay attention to my ticket that states assistant needed until I said so. She was in a hurry n did not give me all her attention. I think she was rude and inconsiderate based on my age or don’t feel like been bothered"
Cons: "The representative at Miami took forever to get a wheelchair. She did not pay attention to my ticket that states assistant needed until I said so. She was in a hurry n did not give me all her attention. I think she was rude and inconsiderate based on my age or don’t feel like been bothered"
Cons: "Old entertainment systems. No charging for phones."
Cons: "outdated inflight entertainment system generally worn and old plane"
Pros: "Boarding went fast, staff was friendly, security information on screen, so it was easy to follow."
Cons: "We had a 30 minute delay, didn’t get any information about why leaving late and why flying in circles over London... would understand if I would’ve known zhe reason."
Cons: "Too crowded in Business Class"
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The flight was over two hours late. No USB ports for electronics. Leg room and seats were dismal."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and well organized. The plane was clean and prepared -cabin crew was very friendly.We did miss our connection and I liked that British airways got us on the next available flight and had that information as we exited our flights."
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "The seat in the so-called business class was too narrow even for a very slim person. The middle seat was too awful!"
Pros: "The food was good and there was a great movie selection."
Cons: "I felt like a sardine. The seats are very tiny and there are so many of them."
Cons: "Everything was sub par with BA. We upgraded to world traveler plus and the seats were old, there was trash from the previous flight and the tv screens were from 1995. The movies are only on loop so when you take off and are finally allowed to turn on the tv, the movies are 25 minutes in. All around a waste of money. Will never fly BA AGAIN!!"
Pros: "The A-380 is outstanding. Seats are good, even in economy. Entertainment system is great."
Cons: "It seems to me that boarding by Groups has not helped in the least bit, instead it has made things slower. It's bad enough that the charges and limitations on luggage have forced everyone to try to board with their suitcases... The group system just makes things worse. I recommend BA compares itself to Lufthansa, Swiss, Qatar, Thai, whatever, and avoid trying to match Easyjet and American Airlines on service levels. Oh, and there is no excuse for long delays and cancellations in the most important airport in Europe. At least not for a simple dusting of snow."
Pros: "It was good traveling with American Airlines. Good service from Chicago to London."
Cons: "I did not like the service between British airways from London to Gothenburg, they charge you even for water. They did not offer free drinks like soda or water, they charged. Even though the flight was international."
Pros: "The crew were amazing, friendly, attentive and quick at everything they did"
Cons: "The entertainment screens were a little old and battered - scratched and all, which meant a reduced viewing experience"
Pros: "Good service ...very convenient... reliability..... but please pleaes start using new aircraft’s I have been flying Ba 118 to London for 12 years ..... I need to update your aircraft’s .... when I do Lhr - NYE the aircraft’s are much better.... all my business friends have now shifted to Emirates because of the service and aircraft’s..... I keep flying BA because of the convenience of the direct flight and loyalty I have for the airline..... but we deserve better aircraft’s....."
Pros: "Good friendly service. Flights were on time."
Cons: "Food, especially breakfast is atrocious. Stupid to have to go through security again at Heathrow when you are transferring"
Cons: "BA pulled a fast one on the passengers by first gradually increasing the projected delay, up to 3.5 hours, and then last minute changing the flight status from "delayed by 3.5 hours" to "on time, gate open". They did this without making any announcements on the loudspeaker, or sending any notifications to the passengers. Whoever didn't see the status change on a screen would have missed the flight. The crew must have recognized this (after half of the plane didn't show up), and just decided to wait some more, so our "on time" flight was eventually delayed by 1.5 hours only because the airline couldn't shepherd the passengers together when they were ready to leave."
Cons: "definitely a significant downgrade from my first flight from dallas to london. this flight from london to bangalore was outdated, with old entertainment systems, no usb connection, no snacks available. also we were shuttled from the boarding area on a crowded bus to the plan and had to climb several stairs with our heavy handbaggage up to enter the plane. crew was ok, nothing special. i've traveled british airways quite a few times from the USA via London to India and always notice the downgrade on the flight to India."
Cons: "Connecting flight experience"
Cons: "Transfering at Heathrow is a stroke-inducing experience. Just getting from one terminal to another takes close to an hour. Add to that sadistic, bossy security personnel, incomprehensible flight announcements (in England!!) and trademark British incompetence -- Brexit can't come soon enough!"
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Lack of communication about delays."
Cons: "British air sold seats on american but couldnt - or wouldnt- allow us to Book our seats ahead and together. We had to wait til boarding day and airport checkin. Shame on them. If theyre going to make money code sharing, then they better deliver!! Then the american flight's ent'mt didnt work nor reading lights. Hopefully you had a fully charged smart phone!"
Cons: "Plane was late which caused us to miss our connection and spend an extra 12 hours traveling to Gothenburg"
Cons: "Completely messed up departure time, poor maintenance and old aircraft. Grumpy service"
Pros: "The staff onboard the flight was friendly."
Cons: "There was a last minute gate change that was not announced until boarding was closing, so I had to race across to the other side of the airport to catch the plane. There was no food/drinks provided on the flight."
Pros: "On time, friendly staff"
Cons: "No entertainment in board and the AC dripped on me."
Pros: "Great staff, and very helpful."
Cons: "Small seats, and the website wouldn't let me choose an exit row. The seatbelt signs in the back section DID NOT WORK, and got me scolded when I went up for a bathroom trip (no announcement and you couldn't see any other signs from the seat). When we boarded the plane, the rear half or so of the plane was a ridiculous temperature"
Pros: "Pleasant staff, quiet A380 plane"
Cons: "These seats are so close together you could not even adopt the brace position if they told you to. The seat in front of me was less than one foot away from my face. Not an exaggeration. I measured."
Pros: "Everything was okay, but before boarding the British Airways crew pulled us aside and told us that they cannot allow two carry on bags ( one carry on suitcase and one laptop backpack). That's insane. We had to wait forever to get the bags checked in and make it back to the gate. We didn't feel like valued customers and never going to fly British Airways again."
Pros: "same as newark-london sector."
Cons: "same experience as in newark- london sector"
Pros: "Boarding process and crew were efficient."
Cons: "Seats were super-cramped, could not lean back to anything approaching a comfortable level, food was very ordinary, and the entertainment choices extremely limited."
Pros: "The 1 hr flight"
Cons: "They charged 3.50£ for tea"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and the captain did his best to make up for a delay"
Cons: "There was a bit of stress during boarding with people unable to find luggage space - and at least one verbal argument between passengers"
Cons: "luggage was on another flight - i got my luggage 24 hours later"
Cons: "Wheelchair assistance was not provided to both the passengers , even though it was requested during reservation. Baggage was lost and did not make it to Bangalore"
Cons: "Small selection of movies"
