Pros: "It’s nice to be in a plane fitted with modern conveniences. Great entertainment options."
Cons: "I didn’t have a window at all. The staff didn’t offer any snacks to us. My bag was the only one that didn’t make it while I had a plenty long layover."
Pros: "Great airline. Crew was great. Comfort was good. Arrived on time"
Cons: "Well the days of reclining seats are over."
Pros: "Funny crew members and very friendly captain"
Pros: "Nice smooth flight"
Pros: "Flight crew got us to Columbus on time despite a delay leaving the gate"
Cons: "More room, less congestion."
Pros: "Crew was great. Delta auto rebooking caused me to miss my next flight"
Cons: "Contacting me before rebooking would have saved me $400"
Cons: "Notes were in the computer that our flight was delayed in someone at Delta told us we had to re book because we were not 2 hours prior to our flight after arriving in a cab. Delta error. Other lady told us to run to a security and get to the gate which we did and there were notes in the system and t"
Pros: "Everything was on time & organized"
Cons: "I had to download that Gogo app to watch a move. That sucked"
Cons: "Delta put me on an aisle rather than window I am broad shouldered and got pummeled throughout the flight by passengers and crew passing by Gal next to me fell asleep on my shoulder It was ok. She was attractive. :-)"
Pros: "For a puddle jumper jet it was amazingly comfortable. Even had enough room to put both feet and a carry on bag under the seat. And the seats were more comfortable relative to the competition (eg. United and US Air)."
Cons: "Seats can always be more roomy but that is a problem with all puddle jumper jets."
Cons: "plane was old, entertainment system wasn't stable and had to reboot several times. no usb outlets to charge. wifi was spotty which is hard to be acceptable when your are paying for it."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Plane was delayed 90 minutes due to late crew. Plane was very old, only outside bins held carryons."
Pros: "From the gate agent to flight attendants the flight was great"
Cons: "The sky lounge to few bathrooms"
Cons: "No chicken sandwich."
Pros: "Flew premium economy/delta comfort + and was a great flying experience. A taste of business without the $3000+ ticket price. Food was excellent, a huge step above economy. Extra comfort with wider seats. And priority boarding as well. This was more like premium economy that you get with European airlines. For long haul flights, well worth the cost. Flight was delayed 2 hours, but Delta had their own special route in Shanghai airport to bypass a lot of the crowds either transferring or checking in for fight. I wouldn’t have made my connecting flight if they hadn’t. Plus my checked bags went straight thru to my final destination in china,n instead of having to pick up and re-check them in Shanghai."
Cons: "2-hour delay causes me to almost miss my connection. I know some passengers had to be transferred to different flights which they almost missed."
Cons: "Flight was horrible"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "No complain"
Pros: "How professional everyone was"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Good films"
Cons: "Seats cramped, legroom bad"
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: "Gate agent @ LAX calling every single passenger with a lot of noise around couldn't hear. I had to go and check myself a couple of times."
Pros: "flight attendants"
Cons: "As soon as we all were boarded we where told there was a mechanical issue. Sat on the boarded cramped flight for 2 hours until issue was fixed. If there was a mechanical issue then the plane should’ve not been boarded until it was fixed. Much rather have waited in lobby for 2 hours than on a plane with no food and water. Or at least alllowed us to deboard while issues where resolved."
Pros: "I liked getting home"
Cons: "I didn’t like the delays without warning or any benefits at the end."
Pros: "The crew was nice. The cabin very clean. Flight very comfortable"

Pros: "Glenlivet whisky for free"
Pros: "Crew was fine."
Cons: "Boarding could have been more organized."
Pros: "The crew was great, as always. Unfortunately, my seat mate was very overweight, pushing into my space. No fault of BA except that bigger seats would help the "growing" population of travelers."
Cons: "Bigger seats for bigger travelers. Especially on long flights. Those of us that are less full figured would be more comfortable. Go back to the system that includes one checked bag and one carry on as included in the advertised price. I know that airlines need to be more competitive, but the ala carte for luggage is not acceptable. Instead, offer an opportunity for customers t donate to offset the carbon impact. Thanks"
Cons: "Really old plane with uncomfortable seats and really bad in flight options. The air conditioning was also broken so the entire flight felt hot and muggy, this is on a 12 hour flight!!"
Pros: "Crew were wonderful."
Cons: "It would be good if ba could stop losing my luggage."
Cons: "Best flight and touch down ever."
Cons: "Delayed, twice!"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly. Engaged in genuine conversation. The aircraft was newish and clean."
Cons: "Avoiding Atatürk Airport full stop."
Pros: "Nothing to like at all."
Cons: "There is no food even water at international flight!!! Terrible service."
Pros: "Comfort of the journey, take off and landing were expertly done, approach was just the right speed and contact was soft but firm. Crew were pleasant enough. One of them felt he always had to show his authority with a firm voice, not necessary but maybe that’s how he speaks. In general no problems"
Cons: "I’m quite disappointed to have to buy food on an airline of British airways stature. My only gripe with whole day."
Cons: "Left Washington two hours late. Left London on return 45 minutes late."
Pros: "Staff and food"
Cons: "TSA lack of checking my suitcase in a timely manner caused us to lose our connecting flight to
Cons: "Very bad smell, pass landing"
Pros: "I remember time when BA was an example other airlines (professional crew, food on board, etc)... Seats are still better than so called cheap lines and more spacious aircraft. Baggage policy quite generous (however expensive)."
Cons: "Well, I believe that now British Airways reach a level of Ryanair... Prices haven't changed thou, still medium range. Customer service very low, no on-board food anymore (even in quite a long haul flights), ridiculous "priority" system, dated planes..."
Pros: "Spacious seats"
Cons: "Hot atmosphere inside the aircraft during flight"
Pros: "There was NO water in a 4+ hour flight unless you pay!!"
Cons: "Non of the three bottles I asked for on duty free were onboard It is apauling that food & drinks have to be bought in such a long flight including water!!!"
Cons: "It was a two hour flight, we did not get the opportunity to buy a drink and food until an hour and forty minutes into the flight. This is not acceptable."
Pros: "The title says it all"
Cons: "La pantalla se veía muy borrosa. Un sistema muy lento y obsoleto Necesitan actualizarlo"
Pros: "One aspect that was greatly appreciated was when the cabin head came over the speaker and asked everyone to please return their seat to the up right position so that everyone could enjoy their meal. When you sit in the main cabin, it's incredibly frustrating to have the person in from of you recline their seat. There is little room, and for the most part everyone is pretty selfish about that."
Cons: "The cabin crew got a little snippy. Understandable. It is a long flight."
Pros: "The crew were very nice and friendly."
Cons: "The seat configuration in business class is the worst of all carriers I have ever flown. Very uncomfortable in so many ways."
Pros: "Just boarding"
Cons: "I am sorry to say but everything on the flight tonight was poor - from the bad food to warm drink and no entertainment and also the personnel. They looked liked working for cheap hotel. Very poorly managed."
Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "Crew were helpful, polite"
Cons: "Flight was late boarding and departing Not particularly comfortable seats No free drink"
Cons: "No food unless it was paid for even water!!! Such a cheap move and sucked being hungry the whole damn time Gate assigned late and very frustrating to find on other end of terminal with a train to take to find it and feeling like you’d miss plane!!"
Pros: "Comfort but only since I paid extra to upgrade to business class. World Traveler Plus is mediocre at best."
Cons: "Boarding process was chaotic."
Pros: "One of the most comfortable cabin interiors I've been in for 747s"
Cons: "Flight boarding was delayed fairly significantly, the second time this has happened to me out of two flights. Certain "hand luggages" were allowed onto the plane despite then failing to fit in overhead compartments and slowing down the whole procedure. Food was bad."
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "I had a flight from Atlanta to London with a connection flight to fly to Istanbul. The first flight was fine and smooth but the second was just terrible. Upon buying and resorting to British Airwaya, it wasn't mentioned anywhere that the second flight plans do not offer complimentary soft drinks or snacks for the three hour flight after a 6 hour layover. Assuming my flight was going to feed, I didn't eat a whole lot at the airport so I didn't have to spend too much money. I declined the cart the first go around and didn't seem any too interested or sure what some of the options were. I lasted as long as I could and gave in and pulled out my credit card (not accepting cash is another disappointment because my Turkish bank account was charged by pounds) but there was nothing but one choice left and it didn't sit well in my stomach."
Pros: "Nice flight, great service."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Timely and good crew."
Cons: "No jetways in Frankfurt. Had to board using stairs."
Cons: "I didn't get to go. The Turks said I couldn't even change planes in Istanbul without a visa -- and they weren't issuing any."
Pros: "Cabin crew was amazing..... didnt mind the delay things happen"
Pros: "Amazing! Great customer service from flight attendants and it was a smooth travel. Loved it!"
Cons: "Had to pay even for water. Seats very small."
Pros: "On time, friendly staff"
Cons: "No entertainment in board and the AC dripped on me."
Pros: "flight was relatively empty, and did not delay too much."
Cons: "No entertainment whatsoever. Meal is only a muffin or a cake of some sort. Waited way too long to disembark the plane."
Pros: "There was something to like?"
Cons: "This was a four hour international flight from London to Istanbul. There was no in-flight entertainment system of any kind, not even audio, and there was no free food or drinks. Not even a bag of peanuts or a soda. Everything had to be paid for. And if you did wanted to purchase something, it took forever since passengers had to whip out a credit card. Cash not allowed. I have never been on an international flight that made you pay for food and drinks. When I inquired why, the reason given was that this was a "short-haul international flight". Oh, I see. British Airways is now a discount airline."
Cons: "No snacks for 8 hours. Crew inattentive."
Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Service, crew, departure delay, dated vehicle"
Pros: "The flight was half full"
Cons: "The plane was half comfortable. We were charged for everything. Water, etc."
Pros: "Inflight crew was good and polite."
Cons: "Made me go in economy class que to enter the aircraft inspite of I having paid the 3 times more expensive business class ticket. Business class seats were too small and uncomfortable compared to the other airlines. Loos and facilities were not in accordance compared to the other airlines."
Cons: "Has taken up mobility/special assistance while bookkong but didn't get any assistance after landing at London Heathrow airport. Entire transfer at Heathrow airport for catching up next flight to Phoenix, USA lot of struggle had done because of it."
Pros: "Nothing really. Except the general BA at T5 which is fine"
Cons: "Everything about the flight. From low quality, poor breakfast on Club cabin to poor service and no entertainment on the flight. It is not certainly value for money for traveling Club."
Cons: "Why do I have to pay for food in an international flight? Ridiculous."
Pros: "Just generally BA. Used to be the prime airline to travel with"
Cons: "No entertainment on the flight. No complimentary food or drink for 4 hrs flight and charging the customers a lot of money. not really worth the money."
Cons: "Crew was pretty unfriendly! There was no food served and no in-flight entertainment although the flight was 4 hours! Worst airline I have been so far! They need to learn alot from other airlines such as American Airways or Turkish Airlines!"
Pros: "-Crew was very attentive to the passenger who needed medical attention. -Captain spoke clearly and slowly. All crew members were very professional. -Cleaner and bigger WC rooms than most planes I've been on which is always a plus."
Cons: "-Food was mostly bland (e.g. vegetarian lasagna), overly seasoned (e.g. caramel/chocolate pudding dessert) or just not quite good (e.g. cole slaw). Lots of room for improvement here. Thank goodness I'd packed some snacks while we were still in Barcelona. -The earbuds wasn't very good in comparison to other in-flight earbuds I've used from other airlines. Sometimes staticky, noise cancellation was low, and wasn't as comfortable to wear."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Nothing: everything was beyond expectations"
Pros: "Lounge. BA is currently using First Lounge at Gatwick during the renovation of the BA lounge."
Cons: "Crew behaving like prison guards. Not helpful and friendly, a disgrace. Food catering a joke (peanuts and crips)"
Pros: "Amazing crew!"
Cons: "Keep traveler's updated on delays."
Pros: "Crew was fun. Didn't get to finish movie because no wifi from den to mtj"
Pros: "Flight was very late landing and we missed our connecting flight. As a result had to get a rental car in order to connect with our friends. Also it was a baby crying nonstop for the first half of the flight."
Cons: "Better timing on the flight connections."
Pros: "Crew professional. Flight on time and clean"
Cons: "Seating room was horrible. My knees hit the seat on front of me, fortunately the gentleman sitting there did not try to recline. Seat very narrow As well as isle. Controls for monitor in seat back on arm rest and I kept activating it accidentally while trying to nap which was annoying. I’m 6’1” and 190 pounds so am not what I’d consider oversized but I’ve not been this uncomfortable on a flight in many years. Will make a note to avoid this line and plane in the future"
Cons: "We could have made our connecting flight. And then our"
Cons: "Very cold but that’s better than very hot. Wore my coat and your blanket. Seat bottom was very uncomfortable but I sat on the pillow you provided and that solved that."
Pros: "The way everyone helped me get on the flight as I was a few minutes behind the 45 minute window to check my bag"
Cons: "Everything was top shelf they really done a great job on this flight"
Pros: "Quick direct service with no connections."
Cons: "Seated in 8C on 737-900. Could not strrtch legs as blocked door to toilet in front of my seat. Had one passenger exit the toilet and fall in my lap."
Pros: "Short duration"
Cons: "Horrible seating, small, cramped, ergonomically impossible"
Pros: "The flight from BHM to DEN (my connection) was re-routed due to poor weather in DEN. What was supposed to be a 3-hr flight, turned into a 5-hr flight. Thank goodness my layover was originally 3.5 hrs, so that extra time in the air cut into that wait time at the airport, but at least waiting at the airport would allow me to move around and stretch my legs, and not be stuck in THE tiniest plane seat I've ever experienced."
Cons: "Being stuck on the plane for 2 hours longer than the original flight time of 3 hours made my legs ache. The seats were SO incredibly tiny, and there is very little room in the pocket on the back of the seat in front of you. You can't fit a water bottle, and barely my tiny purse or e-reader device. Please do away with these super-tiny seats."
Cons: "United's flight was delayed by 6 hours, couldn't make the connecting flight from Washington DC to Denver so they routed me to san francisco, spend the night at the airport there and then travel to Denver in the morning. Fortunately there was a very helpful crew in Schiphol that was able to get us on a flight with american airlines to philadelphia and then on to Denver."
Pros: "Gate agent was sincere and professional."
Cons: "Aircraft cabin temperature far to warm and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Cannot rate the food as I didn’t have any."
Pros: "Your seating was spacious!"
Cons: "The unfriendliness of the crew."
Cons: "This flight didn't happen. It was cancelled for "weather" hours before we were even to board. Because the cancellation was due to weather, the airline wasn't responsible for picking up the hotel to get on the first flight the next morning. When I finally got home, my bag wasn't even on the flight with me."
Pros: "Good on-phone customer service to make flight accommodations since we missed our connecting flight out of Denver"
Cons: "Insufficient and/or incomplete communication from pilot as to the nature of the delay (unhooked cable), how it was being addressed (the ONLY person that could hook the cable was still at home; then when he did arrive, he was assigned to fix another airplane before ours), and what we, as passengers, could do to help ourselves (United staff was reviewing connections, but then no one ever came back to relay information about that). We missed our connecting flight (we finally departed 15 minutes before our connecting flight left Denver); I had to call customer service while still sitting on the plane, and we were placed on a connecting flight out of Denver that left 4 hours AFTER we should have landed at our final destination. What should have been 9 hours of total travel time (including driving to and from airport, security checks, customs, etc.) turned into 20 hours, resulting in a lost 1st day of our trip."
Pros: "Delayed outbound so I got to CA much later than I needed to be."
Cons: "Advertised great price that did not include luggage and changes were not permitted. Cancellation within 24 hours."
Pros: "The plain got loaded and tool off early and got landed early."
Pros: "Direct flight - nothing else"
Cons: "This flight is never on time"
Pros: "I am slow walking due to health issues. Coming from Kansas City to Chicago was a problem. My daughter who was with me is physically handicapped. There was no transportation to assist us to get from one terminal to another one when we arrived. Thank goodness we had a two and one-half hour overlay. Going home was a different story. Two wonderful gentleman met us as we disembarked and speedily got us to our flight. We only had 30 minutes and they made sure we were there. Issac and the other man are to be commended!"
Cons: "The fact that no one was there to assist us with transportation."
Pros: "Everything was quick and convenient! No hassles! Smooth sailing"
Pros: "easy boarding, drinks served, on time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Pilot missed the landing. Staff uncourteous."
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "Ifot like tga ser vive"
Pros: "In these past six months my family and I have been back and forth on the same route and in four occations this flight as been delayed. My 70 year old aunt lost her other flight in Houston and had to wait 12 more hours overnight wihtout food because all the restaurants were already closed. In our case were a party of five and with 1hr 40min connection. We had to run to the other side of the airport to the international gates not knowing if we lost the flight because when we arrived to Houston the second flight was already boarding. Luckly the flight attendants let us out first before the other passengers and barely made it."
Pros: "From Salt Lake to Houston, there was a really rude flight attendant, a man. Other than that, my entire flight experience was good. They didn't have Dr. Pepper."
Cons: "It was awful. Flight was delayed for 3 hours because united couldn't get a pilot here who was even coming from a warm weather destination so weather shouldn't have been a problem. Poor planning. There was another flight I tried to get on but they couldn't seem to locate their flight attendants and it was delayed about 6 hours."
Pros: "The staff was pleasant. You can sign up for text notifications in reference to flight information."
Cons: "The gate changed and there was confusion as to the correct gate. Luckily I had signed up for United text notifications which communicated the change. Restroom restrictions due to non functioning test rooms."
Pros: "Nothing even went i got thete 55 minute early they didn't allow me to board the plaine i wad sent to anothrr airline and i. Still stuck in north carolina to 10:00 pm went i could been in my bed by now no more united for me."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "The cabin was very hot"
Pros: "Thank you for moving me to another flight when mine was cancelled I appreciate that."
Cons: "Movies were not accessible - captions were too small. Movie also froze a few times or became jerky. Not sure whether or not it was your issue or the phone itself."
Cons: "I had problems from the beginning of my flight to the end. My plane got canceled because they did not have enough Staff. I wasted a whole day of my vacation, waiting on flights"
Cons: "Tiny space, no access to electricity"
Cons: "My flight was delayed by 3 hours which caused me to miss my connecting flight...needless to say I had to stay at the airport for 16 hours for another flight on another airlines"
Pros: "Punctual, good service"
Pros: "Crew was attentive. I liked the wifi option to watch movies"
Cons: "Didn't like that I paid to upgrade my seat for more legroom but another person saw the empty seat next to me moved into it without paying and crew did nothing about it. Also paid $50 extra for priority boarding and security but was informed by the airport staff in Aruba that it didn't apply for that airport. Seats are a little tight"
Pros: "Short flight, direct"
Cons: "Wifi misleading, sounds like free but not."
Pros: "Male server was good."
Cons: "Flight time was initially pushed back (booked for 11am, schedule change to 230) and then was over 90 minutes late departing. Very little information on the delay: why, when taking off and no apology."
Pros: "friendly service newspaper punctuality"
Cons: "the snack little legroom"
Pros: "Very kind employees, was able to get last minute tickets at a reasonable price, entertainment on the first flight"
Pros: "Seats to close together, extra several inches would be much more comfortable."
Cons: "United botched my boarding passes at security so I had to run back and get the correct one, catching my bags to see if they were going to the right place"
Pros: "Food was good, albeit the portion was small."
Cons: "Flight crew was not rude, but not friendly either. Typical of a US airline."
Pros: "Boarding was a little challenging. Had issues with a bad check-in kiosk, but the staff handled well and got on my flight. Small plane,but a short flight."
Cons: "I was told I had a confirmed seat after a cancelled flight and showed up the next day to find out it was given to someone else. No help was giving took us three hours to finally get help"
Cons: "I was told that despite weather delays I would definitely make my connection on time and to "stop wasting the agent's time" with my questions. Of course I missed it, spent Christmas night in the Houston airport, and nearly lost my job for missing work the next day. I would never fly United again."
