Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "Kayak would not allow me to change the ticket - referred me to FlyUs. Horrible customer service. I needed to return on Sat Jun 15 not Sun Jun 16. Would not give refund (i agreed to that when buying) but would not refund the tax, which i feel legally they have to do."
Cons: "Won't be using FlyUs or Kayak again for future purchases. Will go to the airlines directly. Too much red tape and horrible customer service for me to do this anymore. I fly a lot and have over 20,000 miles with Kayak, but those days are over."
Cons: "The food was sub-standard, though it was described accurately as a snack."
Pros: "Good. Thanks."
Pros: "Food was great and the crew were helpful."
Cons: "Seat could have been comfier!"
Pros: "Captain explained situation in person"
Cons: "Plane was 90 minutes. Airport was overcrowded and dirty. Issues were due to airport and air traffic control"
Pros: "The staff upon checking in were very polite and courteous."
Cons: "It took a while for the staff to open up the boarding gate . Upon boarding I was given a sandwich which contained eggs."
Pros: "Service leg room and service with a smile"
Pros: "We purchased seats with extra legroom and it was very, very much worth it. My husband is 6 foot four and he was able to stretch out his legs comfortably. Seats are not uncomfortable, which is different from some airlines we’ve been on, and we really like the adjustable headrest where the sides can be flipped up to keep your head from rolling around while snoozing. We like that the silverware is actually metal instead of plastic!"
Cons: "The screen that folded out of the armrest was so small that watching a movie on it gave us a headache. The furst meal/lunch was so-so. Personally I would prefer a mixed fresh salad with a little bit of ham or chicken on top instead of the attempt at a hot mushy entree. The second meal/dinner was Similar to a hot pocket. The bread and the filling was pretty tasteless. Why not just have a healthy fruit bowl? Would have liked to see some English language reading material in the seat back pocket – it appeared to be only German language. Alternatively, it would be great if the flight attendants could offer non-German language reading materials upon request."
Pros: "The facilities were really great!"
Cons: "The food - it was in VERY small quantity"
Pros: "Hospitality and attitude of crew Food"
Cons: "Cramped economy seats including leg space"

Pros: "Great, polite, and well dressed flight attendants. All flight attendants treated us with care, they were kind, and provided exceptional service."
Pros: "Nothing. Will never travel with airline in the future. Definitely will not recommend."
Cons: "Flights are delayed frequently which resulted in missing connection from Frankfurt to New York. On arrival, passengers are herded like animals from one point to the next with no explanation as to what resulted in the delay or given sufficient supplements for food etc."
Pros: "on time Family Check in that the flight was not booked out"
Cons: "There were 7 families each with multiple young children who screamed and misbehaved the whole trip. After complaining, the staff did nothing. Bad trip!"
Cons: "Attitude of staff very poor at a request for a drink of water"
Pros: "The boarding procedure was fast and efficient. There was almost no waiting in line and the crew got the plane ready in minutes. Entertainment and food on the flight were both pretty good."
Cons: "Seats were not too comfortable. For long flights like this one, they could really use a bit wider and softer seats."
Pros: "Good choice of movies."
Cons: "The tightness of the seat arrangement when the row ahead reclined is extremely awkward. We are not large people but getting over the aisle armrest was very difficult to maneuver to avoid injury (falling). The security in Munich was upsetting in that one man yelled at me , "Get it out! Get it out! Get it out! because I put my electronics in one of the bins before my husband. I was confused as to what I had supposedly done and I said, "This is my husband" (who was removing his shoes) and this man's reply was "I didn't know that". We were not trying to cause trouble and we cannot understand why he had to yell."
Pros: "flights were on time"
Cons: "food quality can be improved"
Pros: "Everything as expected."
Pros: "On time - although a long flight I didn’t see the time go by"
Pros: "Friendly staff amazing boarding experience"
Cons: "No vegetarian options for food"

Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Cons: "Check in 2x and security 2x Then rushing about"
Cons: "Departure time go to plane was worst because there were not jetway. So people were with carry on to downstairs to reach the plane was very difficult and more difficult for with the baby passengers , elder lady, ...."
Pros: "Friendliness of staff Efficiency"
Cons: "Overall a very good service and no complaints but if In House entertainment was provided it would enhance the experience."
Pros: "Online check in worked well through app."
Cons: "If you leave something on the plane, don't expect for it to be handed in. My iPad disappeared on the flight. The woman at the boarding gate in Bham kept shouting at everyone, she was really rude, both flights were late taking off."
Pros: "The short transist time in Frankfurt"
Pros: "Staff were polite Comfort ok Food was basic No entertainment."
Pros: "Very courteous service, clearly a step above other airlines"
Pros: "I like flying with Lufthansa. It is one of the best airlines to fly with but a bit pricey."
Cons: "The food was not good at all. For a flight that cost so much, the food could be better."
Pros: "Very organized"
Cons: "Everything.UEverything.United is suck"
Pros: "Everyone are friendly thank you"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Food and beverages were pretty stingy"
Pros: "The pilots"
Cons: "It was a bit hot in the salon. Food was average. Flight intendants were not very attentive. My neighbor was waiting for about 20 min to get someone picked up her empty glass. Entertainment: there was no Russian language."
Pros: "This flight from Munich to Charlotte was operated by Lufthansa. To my surprise (and a little help from a friend) I was upgraded to business class. does not get much better than that !!"
Pros: "Very professional, attentive, friendly flight attendants, clean aircraft (even the restrooms), surprisingly good food. I appreciate the complimentary wine, beer and after meal cordials. Boarding was quick, easy and on time."
Cons: "Economy seat room feels even smaller which, I guess, is to be expected. My husband is 6'2' and his knees touched the seat in front of him. When the person in front leans their seat back it is very claustrophobic. Over all an excellent flight though."
Pros: "Well organized and in time"
Pros: "Flight was only about 60% full. Wine was offered with each beverage pass....also cognac offered after dinner. Plane was newer,comfortable. Lots of legroom in our "more legroom" upgraded seat. Departed on time and arrived early."
Cons: "Goulash meal meat was gristle and inedible. Other food was O.K."
Pros: "Everything on the plane seems clean and well maintained - nothing is broken, worn or soiled. Lufthansa spends a little more effort than other airlines to cut down on waste when it comes to their in-flight food service (real silverware and reuseable dishes). The Munich airport is by far more convenient than Frankfurt when making connections in Germany."
Cons: "I was a bit disappointed with the limited seat availability/choices. If you cannot check in online several hours ahead of the departure you are typically left with center/middle seats in the area of the plane."
Cons: "Because of a family illness I had to reschedule my flight 2 weeks before. Because the flight was booked through a secondary company, rebooking the outgoing flight ended upp: a) costing me as much as the whole original return flight; b) was no longer a 1 stop flight as I also had to stop in Frankfurt plus the company would not allow me to choose directly, I sent them details and then they booked what they could find; and c) I lost both the outgoing flight ( which was charged) and the return flight ( which was not changed) premium seat bookings both of which I had to pay for a second time. If I had booked directly with the airline this would have cost a transfer fee and I would not have lost the premium seat bookings. This was therefore a great expense and inconvenience. I will no longer book flights indirectly when using kayak. In future I will search using google flights and then go straight to the airline sites to book. Very disappointed. I never had this problem when booking with kayak before"
Pros: "The efficiency and professionalism was impressive."
Cons: "The temperature on the flight was uncomfortanly warm. the Airbus planes do not have individual air jets at each seat which is a desirable feature. Therefore, the environment felt stuffy. It would also have been nice to have refills on coffe and hot tea, however, no one checked back with us after round one. The bathroom floor should also have been cleaned more frequently."
Pros: "Crew was attentive - the service from SJC is much better than SFO - less crowded etc. New 787 and Premium Econ is great."
Pros: "Delicious inflight meal and outstanding service!"
Cons: "Please keep up the same standards"
Pros: "The crew members are super friendly and caring."
Pros: "Amy was absolutely amazing! She was attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly! One of the best flight attendants l have ever met."
Pros: "the food was really good and the service was good."
Cons: "the entertainment system for the trip from lhr to acc was a bit outdated"
Cons: "Needs WiFi"
Pros: "Breakfast was great, quick loading , great staff ,leg room was much better for my 6’1” husband with a knee replacement."
Cons: "Due to my husband’s knee replacement, he is always taken to another area to be searched and checked while his wallet and all of his valuables ate left on the conveyer belt unattended and could be stolen by anyone. I grabbed his stuff but they didn’t know who I was. They need a more secure policy."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Leg room!"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Everything was ok"
Cons: "Connecting flight was missed. Too short of time to pass through security and line-up"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Inadequate frequency and quality of service by flight attendants, mediocre food, small portions at dinner service, poor responsiveness of seat controls, incredibly poor resolution and small sized video screen in business class. Nothing but candy and pretzels available for snacks between the long time between meal services. No separate jetway for first and business class passengers. Several hour delayed takeoff after boarding due to multiple maintenance issues and equipment failures."
Pros: "Staff and food"
Cons: "TSA lack of checking my suitcase in a timely manner caused us to lose our connecting flight to
Cons: "Old aircraft, which wasn’t clean"
Pros: "Nice crew Good food Good landing and no uncomfortable turbulence"
Cons: "Personal tv didnt work for majority of flight and when it did there was no audio (update technology ASAP)"
Cons: "First flight cancelled. Customer service hung up first time. Almost 2 hours on hold to reschedule"
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment thus the star rating. The one thing that was very uncomfortable were the seats, there was no lower back support at all."
Cons: "Virtually impossible to feel comfortable that I had successfully checked in. The app kept telling Facebook me I wasn't checked in. AND when I went to review the checked baggage policy to make sure I didn't have to pay for my first checked bag (there was a "YES" notice on a prior screen that made me wonder), the app didn't give me a way to "return to finish check in". Quite unsatisfactory in this day and age. Otherwise, the flight was lovely."
Pros: "Quick boarding, very nice crew. Helpful with infant. Lots of snacks good food."
Cons: "The transfer from T5 to T3 was chaotic. Queues to join queues to get the transfer bus. People were getting caught on a moving escalator because the crowd in front had nowhere they could go to make room. Extremely dangerous! It took longer to get from T5 to T3 than it did to get from Dublin to London. Boarding in T3 for the flight to Denver was almost as bad. Bodies everywhere, no organisation and no help. Then the aircraft itself was so old with uncomfortable seats and an almost unwatchable screen. I will never transit through LHR again."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice & accommodating. Everyone made you feel welcomed and valued. The food was fresh and you could tell there was a lot of detail put into the trays, they were well presented."
Cons: "No complaints, it was really a great experience."
Pros: "Irish people are super nice at the airport, anywhere, as at the boarding The captain has a good sense of humor. Air Lingus both flights has good looking staff and they are nice."
Cons: "The Airlines is Ari Lingus not British Airways Air Lingus has extremely tiny seats for a 11 hours flight. The technology on the plane was very slow and poor. The flight attendants hardly ever brings you water or juices and alcohol is not free of charge for an intercontinental flight. We got took off late cause of the weather but we were all safe."
Cons: "delay in London"
Pros: "Nice seats! Flight tracker. Our flight in the way home was cancelled due to bad weather and although we had to queue for some time all the information we needed about what to do about food, hotels, travel, etc was given to us along with a new flight the next day with seats together. First time I've had a flight cancelled and was impressed with the service I received (now got to try and claim our expenses back so fingers crossed that goes ok)."
Cons: "The curtain that cuts off premium economy getting swooshed across in front of us."
Pros: "I have physical limitations and required assistance stowing overhead luggage and help getting out of seat. Crew were terrific. Wheelchair assistance also great. Travels on my own."
Cons: "Didn't know catering was on sale"
Pros: "the Entertainment system"
Pros: "Fantastic. Plenty of room. Will fly again soon and often."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours before takeoff. Then I missed my connection flight at LHR. Consequently I had to wait for 4 hours to catch filling flight form LHR to NCL. BA very poor service."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "They were out of a lot of the food options on the flight."
Pros: "Guy in the middle next to me had specifically requested and did not receive an aisle seat. He was 6'4" and 315 lbs and did not fit in his seat, spilling over into mine. I have never been so uncomfortable on a flight in my life."
Cons: "No. Space."
Pros: "The cabin crew were friendly and service was excellent"
Cons: "Keep the complementary snacks and drinks made the flight great after a long day"
Pros: "Plane had a bit more legroom than others I've been on recently. That was a pleasant surprise"
Cons: "Airlines in general need to do a better job of controlling the boarding process (using the groups to board) and controlling the amount of luggage people bring on. Peoples definition of a "personal item" are skewed."
Cons: "There was no food on this fight."
Pros: "I flew economy. I was happy that I didn't feel tightly confined in my seat. I'm 5ft. 11 in. tall and had enough legroom so that me knees didn't get pressed up against the seat in front of me. I had the vegan meal and it was good! The staff on board were friendly and professional even when a customer a few rows ahead argued with them! They were able to hear the man out and resolve the problem amicably."
Pros: "Good food. Beautiful plane. Great stuff. Free beverages of all kinds."
Pros: "The plane was comfortable and the flight went smoothly."
Cons: "I hated getting around Heathrow and didn't know what to do once I landed in Amsterdam."
Pros: "Spacious seating."
Pros: "Prompt service"
Cons: "Tea was excellent on Chennai London flight but not that good between London and Chicago"
Pros: "Boarding staff was confused and took al long time. The crew were nice enough but disinterested in serving us and were annoyed when I asked for a few crackers or bread to help with a stomach ache. Never got any. I had to get up several times to ask for water. Comfort was ok and plane was warm enough. There was several people who came and sat down next to me in the open seat, 6 or 7 different people who left their own seats elsewhere on the plane and came to sit next to me in the open seat. One woman brought her child over, asked me to love another seat over, so her child could lay down and put his feet in my lap. Then, when Inledt for the ladies room, she left him there to kick the seat in front of him and throw his tuna fish sandwich pieces on me and on the floor. I never agreed to play nanny to her child and after I'd paid $750 for a one way ticket from TPA to AMS, I didn't think I should have to. The mother gave me an earful of her bad language when I asked her to take care of her own child and take him and his fishy tuna sandwich back to his own designated seat. I had asked a male flight attendant to handle the situation, neither he nor the other staff, who stood by, cared that it was disturbing me, or that the other passengers were playing musical chairs with empty seats all night. I have flown British Air more than 100 times in my life. For 35 years it was my go to airline for step up in quality, service and class. This time I could have flown several other airlines that would have been $379, $400, 547, 650 for the same flight TPA to London Gatwick then AMS, instead I opted to pay a little more and thought I'd get a little more. Not any more on British Air. Other passengers on the flight were rested when they arrived. Not me, I was tired and disappointed and kicking myself for paying more to fly British Air. This is sadly understandable, as all quality is down with alot of airlines. But it's particularly disappointing that I'm saying that about British Air after all these years. I have only complained one time to an airline over 30 years. This will be my second time. I plan to send this complaint to British Air and ask for a refund."

Cons: "poorly working entertainment system."
Pros: "The food and the boarding crw comfortable"

Cons: "Small, small seats"
Pros: "Impressed by service of staff"

They did not assist him in rebooking and we had to sleep in the airport to catch an Easy jet in the morning as all hotels were fully booked. This is about the worst service I have ever encountered and I would like a full refund Thanks Charles"

The TV monitor system broke down consistently so could not watch a complete movie. Captain apologized and kept rebooting but it didn't really work. Long, boring flight with no entertainment..... not what we are used to these days."
Pros: "All British airways plane wa great- suppy of food and drinks was nonstop - thank you for that! Entertainment from heathrow to seattle was great. Cheers mate for a job well done"
