Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew on this flight was amazing, and boarding was right on time."
Cons: "It was pretty hot on the airplane. Could have regulated the temperature a bit better."
Pros: "On time departure and smooth landing"
Cons: "More leg room. Stop nickel and dining passengers to appease investors. Delta is an evil corporation"
Pros: "Despite boarding late, and sitting on the tarmac for half an hour since we missed our take off time, and having to move passengers around to balance the weight on the plane, we made it home alive."
Cons: "We landed over half an hour late. Flight attendants needed to move passengers to balance the weight on the small plane, and asked for "volunteers." When there were none, the FA stood in the aisle and said we just weren't going to take off if nobody volunteered. They should have just MOVED people."
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulence and people screaming in fear, it always makes me feel better when the crew says something reassuring to make people less anxious."
Pros: "Charging at every seat is great."
Cons: "All of the plane extras (e.g. WiFi, food service, etc.) were out of commission for some reason. Without WiFi, I couldn’t watch anything on my own device, and I would’ve had to pay for a headset that is compatible with your screens."
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour. Missed my Easter dinner plans... :("
Pros: "I was upgraded to Comfort+ and the seat next to me was left vacant. That was a great flight!"

Cons: "It was very hot in the cabin during the flight. Several passengers noticed."

Pros: "loved the airbus and in flight movies good stufg"
Pros: "It was a good flight"
Pros: "Some "perk" for Diamond status on Delta to get to a shorter security line, but customs and immigration was... customs and immigration."
Cons: "No available SkyTeam lounge unless you had a business class ticket. As a Diamond flier, I can always access the SkyTeam lounges. Audio for boarding was a little unclear so there was some confusion at boarding. For reasons unknown, my bag was moved from one overhead bin to another. Very frustrating since I board early to avoid this confusion and hassle."
Cons: "Seats are too close."
Pros: "Quick and on time. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Not many movie options."
Cons: "It was so late I missed my connection to sun valley flight. There was not another flight for 8 hrs!!! I think the sun valley flight should have waited for us. It was a matter of 10-15 min.

Cons: "Wish it would've had more movie options"
Pros: "Stewardess named "Mel.""

Cons: "Why is the complimentary Wi-Fi and messaging only for T-Mobile subscribers?"

Cons: "Forced to gate check a bag that fit within the size constraints."
Pros: "The cinnamon cookies, the in-flight movie selection, and the helpful flight crew helped make this flight not as bad as it could have been."
Cons: "There was an infant in the seat directly behind me that chose to cry and scream through a large part of the flight. The mother of this child did not/was not able to keep the child from crying. Even with headphones on, this child's crying persisted to pierce the ears of every passenger within 5 rows of it."

Pros: "Food and choice of entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "Was stuck with the middle seat so I knew what I was in for."
Pros: "Read above"
Cons: "Read above"
Cons: "Flight from LAX to SAN was good once we got across the airport from Westjet terminal to the Delta terminal. LAX is never simple! Comfort on aircraft today is never comfortable unless you pay the extreme pricing of premium seating."
Cons: "Strangely cold!"
Pros: "I had ordered a dairy - free vegetarian meal for the international flight. Initially the attendant brought me a vegetarian meal with cheese, part of the regular meal options, then she found the one with my seat number that was dairy - free. It was quite tasty! And I was grateful, since I would not have been able to eat the meal with dairy. It is not a preference, dairy makes me ill. The delay departing from Brussels caused us to miss our connecting flight to Denver, but our provided hotel accommodations in NY were quite comfortable. One item of note: The LaGuardia staff person, who made our arrangements for the overnight stay, said there was a shuttle from the hotel to JFK ( where our flight was in the morning), so she did not give us a travel voucher for the morning. The Hotel only has a shuttle to LaGuardia; it never has a shuttle to JFK. It seems the staff person should have known that. When we called Delta to ask how we should handle that, Delta kindly offered us reimbursement; it was just a phone call and a mailing for us and for Delta that was extraneous. Our interaction with the staff person was entirely pleasant, we were just surprised that there was misinformation."
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was amazing"
Pros: "Services is good ."
Cons: "Food can be better"

Then had to wait another hour for checked luggage...."

Cons: "Seat pitch could've been more. At least let us know via Whatsapp that the plane is delayed, or at which belt the bags would come out. This basic info was lacking."

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: "I have ordered Wheelchair for my parents which one of my parent didn't get it on Mumbai Airport. When they arrived on Amsterdam Netherlands Airport they were dropped to the gate assigned first and once the gate changed on the fly no body came to help them moving to the new gate assigned which was far away to walk. Nobody even came to tell them that the gate has been changed. It was because of my father's alertness they didn't miss the connecting flight and when my father asked help to members on airport none of them helped my parents and other 4 co passengers which also were on wheel chairs. It was so scary experience for them that they asked me not to book any more flights with Jet Airways. I won't recommend Jet Airways to any of my friends for their parents to travel to USA. I strongly recommend you guys to take a strict action against this. This is so unacceptable."
Cons: "I ordered Wheel chair for my parents but one of them didn't get it at all. When my parents were checking in for flight they asked the representative about meal selection and she didn't answer their questions properly and because of that my mom didn't get proper Hindu Vegetarian food on flight instead she got Egg omelet which she couldn't eat. She has to eat just fruits. My mother is a diabetic patient and she needs a food every after some time. I never had such a bad experience before with any other airlines."

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."
Pros: "The flight to Gdansk took off and arrived on-time and the staff were professional."
Cons: "The flight to Amsterdam from Gdansk was late and I had to RUN to the connecting gate. 50 minutes is NOT ENOUGH time to go through passport control."
Pros: "Good entertainment options. Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "It would be helpful for short people to be able to adjust the head rest lower on the seat. More recent released movies would be helpful. More leg room. Not charging more money to choose seats."
Pros: "kLM staff was great."
Pros: "Food was excellent, service from staff was friendly, and entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Not a lot of shoulder room being in the middle seat. But it had adjustments options for a lot of other things which were good."

Cons: "Headset jack only worked if the headset plug was in EXACTLY the right spot."
Pros: "The crew came to get me from the arrival gate to get to the departure gate since our plane was delayed. It helped to know that the airline was checking to make sure we made the flight."
Cons: "I did not get my luggage in Nairobi. The delayed flight that was the most likely reason it did not get to the connecting flight to Nairobi."
Cons: "They stole my money"
Pros: "Equally friendly crew and experience. It was complimented by the time we got to spend in the fantastic KLM lounge while we waited for the flight."
Pros: "Comfort economy well worth the extra."
Cons: "KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Also, really tired of the fake business class on these flights..."
Pros: "The crew service is impeccable. Ground services very friendly and professional."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. The individual screens are simply outdated like you basically will damage your eyes looking at them. No chargers for phones."
Pros: "great choice of entertainment content, friendly crew"
Cons: "Why do the crew have to slam the overhead and catering compartments to get them to shut?"
Cons: "Pet was left behind at vacation destination as pet's reservation (made and confirmed through KLM) was not found at check in. Waiting for Customer Care to help get pet home and take responsibility for situation and getting no response. Very dissapointed, considering law suit."
Pros: "Fortunately, the plane was not full, so people could spread out a bit to create extra room. The food was really good! (surprisingly)."
Cons: "KLM's new configuration for this type of plane made the seats even narrower than before. While leg room was reasonable, the 3 abreast seating meant a lot of discomfort, especially in the row right in front of the restroom."
Pros: "Great smooth flight staff was pleasant and the overall experience was fantastic."
Pros: "Flight unpleasant. Ground staff in Marseiile great but gate crew didn't control carry on baggage and many of us could not use overhead bins because of passengers who stowed more than one and often oversized suitcases above, so we and many others had to place carry on suitcases under seat. Attendant on plane totally unhelpful and could have rearranged a few bags to make room but preferred to stay in back of plane and talk. To be fair, rest of flight was pleasant although late due in part to boarding issues."
Cons: "Carry on baggage issues and storage on plane. One aloof and unhelpful member of flight crew."
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Flight got delayed. Would be nice if the crew would come around w water occasionally"
Pros: "Great to go through customs in Dublin so the landing at home is easy."
Cons: "The airline made people unnecessarily nervous by posting a very early boarding time so people thought they had to jump in line in customs when, in fact, we all had the same departure times and all had plenty of time."
Pros: "Seating and leg room much better than Ryan Air!"
Cons: "Very late"
Cons: "Excellent airline. Always my first choice!"
Cons: "The flight was perfect, easy on, easy off, on time, smooth comfortable flight."
Pros: "The whole crew was amazing! Meals were very tasty. The pillow and blanket was a nice touch. We really enjoyed the fact we all had entertainment screens."
Cons: "The selection of movies was not very grand."
Pros: "Very happy with my choice of this AE LIGUS Comfortabke seats and great crew Love it"
Pros: "Comfort of seats"
Cons: "No service even water"
Pros: "The flight attendants on Aer Lingus have to be the kindest people ever!"
Cons: "The line at Madrid airport was too long. More staff needed."
Pros: "Timely departure."
Cons: "Staff did not seem engaged in customer service, did not go up and down the aisles to collect cups, paper, etc. very disappointing in tight space."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and has provided lots of water now and then, wich was really relieving on the long distance. The seats were quite comfortable, the food quite all right."
Cons: "The flight was delayed wich caused a lot of stress bevor, while and after it, 'cause of the connection flight, that we were afraid to miss. We've got the connection at the end, but the luggage didn't come with us, so a luggage investigation was needed. A lot of paperwork and stress, hopefully I'll at least get it back soon. Entertainment wasn't available for several hours, it was an error in the system or something. Some of the seats have had it, others have had not. It took them hours to fix it."
Pros: "The ticket qgent was pleasant but Ibwas surprised to learn that my request to pay for 1 bag did. It go through."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant. The food was actually good! The flight was exactly on time! And they didn’t loose my luggage! It was perfect"
Pros: "1. Friendly staff 2. Good food on the plane"
Cons: "The cost of luggage - unfreaking real to have to pay for first suit case when flying overseas and they at a cost of $100 per item!!! Definitely not recommending this airline to my friends unless they are only taking carry-on luggage. The cabin room was more cramped then usual also but it was ok."
Pros: "JFK flight - exit row has TONS of space at modest cost. Latest movies showing for free."
Cons: "Inconsistent food: was decent outbound but less so on the return. Doesn't participate in TSA Pre."
Pros: "The flight was short."
Cons: "I am 6ft 2ins. and the legroom was awful. My knee still hurts. The staff was not very friendly. It’s amazing that flight attendants don’t realize that they work for the passengers and not vice versa."
Pros: "Staff was friendly."
Cons: "It would be nice if they offered coffee or tea or water for free. At least come around with a tray of water."
Pros: "Boarding and on time schedule"
Cons: "Seats, food and not enough beverages"
Cons: "Overall good experience"
Pros: "Crew was attentive and efficient. The flight was smooth aside from the minor turbulence."
Cons: "I sat in a seat with a broken entertainment screen and the WiFi was so slow it was unusable. The seat I sat in also would recline on its own at times. It made for a very long annoying and boring flight."
Pros: "The flight crew arranged for assistance at the arriving airport."
Cons: "The staff at EWR took the wheelchair that I was in and told me that someone would be along with another one. One never arrived. I went to the desk when boarding began. I requested a wheelchair and I was told that I could walk down the ramp without assistance by one of the boarding staff. I was able to but with great pain and much energy. If it had not been for the crew of the flight I probably would never fly on Aer Lingus again."
Pros: "I loved that the trip was relatively short and uneventful. The food was adequate, but nothing to brag about and very little. The hostesses were nice,better than last time. The price was right on, mostly for a trip of under 15 hours...when usually it is 20h with a stopover."
Cons: "On the way over, I couldnt get water. The trolley didn't come by, and I had to "leg-over" my sleeping neighbor to get a glass of water fo the back reserve. The TV wasn't working; the remote was dead. As it was a night flight, it didn't matter tt much for me, but it should've been working. The passengers could have been spread out better as there were completely empty middle rows. It would have helped with comfort."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Food not good , entertainment system old un updated and slow"
Cons: "First time I flew with Aer Lingus and can't say I will do it again. Didn't realize I was flying across continents in such a small plane. The flight attendants were barely civil; the bin above me housed supplies and on more than one occasion an attendant with visibly wet armpits leaned over me without nary an excuse me."
Pros: "Nothing extraordinary about the flight (not necessarily a bad thing). Complimentary refreshments."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "no movies"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, the crew was friendly and the food was okay."
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn't great. The earphones quality was quite bad and felt really uncomfortable. Unfortunately, AerLingus still has that double pronged plugs and I wasn't able to use my personal set (actually, I could but sound would only work on one side). I'll definitely fly with them again, only next time I'll bring an attachment for me to be able to use my headphones."
Pros: "What is there not to like: The crew are courteous and caring, the planes are clean and the price is right!"
Cons: "The check-in in Duesseldorf was subcontracted and staffed by an uninformed agent which led to a lot of confusion and inconvenience in Dublin. Someone like that does not reflect well on Aer Lingus which I definitely recommend otherwise!"
Pros: "The fact I got hone"
Cons: "Didvto security breach and also an issue with ground staff not bringing a wheel chair for a passenger we were herded round for 3 hours . We were told we could keep our water but then going through security wevwetevtoldcwe couldn't and there was no offer of water. The captain did apologize. I have no issue with aer Lingus staff they did their job. It is Mabchester airport which is bad as they are the ones that were responsible for these two incidents happening"
Cons: "Baggage lost for mere one-hour flight from Amsterdam to Dublin with extended delay before it was recovered."
Pros: "From Brussels to Dublin, we had a good flight. The air hostess was attentive enough and the cabin comfort was excellent."
Cons: "That we can't even have a cup of coffee without having to pay 3 euros. I thought that was outrageous."
Cons: "The flight was over an hour late taking off. Mediocre service from the crew, they seemed tired. Upon arrival you could not open the cargo doors and our luggage was delayed for almost 1.5 hours. There were several other issues with thus flight that made the overall experience a poor one. Some where beyond the control of the airline, others were not. There was a lot of room for improvement."
Cons: "3.5 hr delay due to mechanical issues. Missed connecting flight."
Cons: "Only 3 people to check bags for the entire flight? Are you kidding? I had to rush through passport control, skip the line, to make my flight. Unreasonably understaffed check-in in Paris. I stood in line to check my bag and get boarding pass for an hour and a half. Absolutely ridiculous."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient, the flight arrived 10 minutes early."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment offered, aside from what you could purchase. But as it was a very short flight, this didn't make much of a difference for me. Overall, good short flight."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled"
Pros: "I love your airline. First trip with you this week. Clean spacious planes. Friendly and caring staff... noticed great things watching crew help others. Great entertainment options and quality. Food was tasty! Looking forward to my next trip with you."
Pros: "Pretty much everything"
Cons: "Couldn't get sound in both ears on headphones. Otherwise ''twas a great flight!"
Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "Seat 31A: Headphone socket was not working properly, table was broken (didnt keep the food tablet), entertainment system crashed after pausing the movie. check-in baggage was lost during journey and still couldnt get found. Very annoying."
Pros: "Short and easy. Flight crew was helpful."
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "cramped and loud with children crying the entire way"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Where to start??? Checking in process? Well this sucked. I wasn't able to check-in online and thus couldn't ever pick my seats. This meant getting a horrible seat on the plan. When I asked about this, I was told they are having issues with their online check-in process. Next the seats on the felt were very tight. They felt as bad as American Airlines domestic flights. I typically try to take European airlines when going to Europe as they tend to have more spacious seats but not this airline. They were VERY SMALL! Entertainment was ok and fairly typical. As for food on the plane, it was ok but they are extremely stingy with drinks. They charge for alcohol and will only offer a tiny fountain drink once. I've been on flights where soft drinks are always offered everytime they come around. was disappointed in this area as well as many other airlines offer significantly more. All in all I will do all I can to avoid this airline in the future. It was very poor."
Pros: "Aer lingus was good and helpful"
Cons: "I don't have my bag"
Pros: "US Customs pre clearance saved us a lot of time at JFK."
Cons: "Air France’s apathy towards its customers is shocking. Traveling with three children , our flight was delayed by 3hrs resulting us arriving in Paris after 1AM. With the airport shuttle(CDVAL) to our airport hotel closed, they offered no assistance despite of my request. Simply asked us to take a taxi (when all taxi stands are abandoned at 2AM). Beware if traveling with family."
Cons: "tout est à revoir !"
Pros: "Perfectly on time, no hassle, seat OK. This is the way I appreciate a flight."
Cons: "Food. No choice, three "madeleine" (sweet) cookies for all, no sugar-free (salty) alternative..."
Pros: "Despite being a short flight, they gave food"
Cons: "Nothing. All ok"
Cons: "The food is usually very good, this time it was poor to disappointing- dark meat chicken.., tasteless & unhealthy....mushy fruit dessert choices"
Pros: "The crew was excellent and surprisingly the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "I think more attention should be paid to cleaning the plane and eeek, there was no liqueur in economy class. Music selection in entertainment should be wider too"
Pros: "The Delta flight service was much better than the Air France flight I took on the previous leg."
Cons: "Crew on the ground was very rude"
Cons: "Departure time was almost 2 hours late and the communication of the cabin crew regarding this issue was poor. Almost an hour went by without an update."
Cons: "CDG airport in Paris is a very inefficient and by far the slowest airport. I recommend other passengers to get to the airport at least 4 hours before their departure."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and seat in KQ is super comfortable in Business."
Pros: "Food and wine. Entertainment."
Cons: "Sat closer to water closet. Maybe more air freshener in there."
Pros: "Tight seat, was moved out of exit row because of my age"
Cons: "Could have stayed in exit row. Plan arrived in Moscow late so flight was over one hour late"
Pros: "The cue lines per zone are the most brilliant idea!"
Cons: "After boarding began there was a backup after the gate en route to the plane. No explanation. The plane left an hour later than scheduled but seemed to arrive close to scheduled time."
Cons: "More water provided during the flight. Also, the second meal was not very good."
Pros: "Good food and crew"
Cons: "Plane was old and seats were super tiny. Even an average guy would be uncomfortable in it. Can’t sit in one spot for longer than 15 min without getting sore."
Pros: "Good food and service"
Pros: "Crew was nice although one fellow was a little too “nervous” and looked bossy"

Cons: "they lost our luggage very inconvenient"
Pros: "I was given a great seat and the food was OK- not the Air France food of 5 years ago but still good"
Cons: "I didn't really use the in flight entertainment - the usual movies, tv etc"

Cons: "Check in process was easy. The flight attendants are all very helpful and kind."
Cons: "Engine noise in the cabin is loud."
Pros: "Boarding staff helpful with Disabilities; food services quick and pleasant; interior cabin temps appropriate."
Cons: "Why is boarding so prolonged? 1-Small children and elders cannot stand for 20/30 minutes 2-Why are various sections (particularly Economy), no longer boarded by rows. and from rear first...so people don’t clog aisles, step over others, injure or be injured by heavy overhead moves?"
Pros: "Food was good. Crew nice and professional."
Cons: "Landing was not so smooth."

Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent"
Cons: "We were transported to the plane which was quite some distance to the plane via bus after climbing down steep stairs from the departure gate area. Then we had to climb steep steps in extremely hot weather. We were then delayed for a hour in the plane in very hot conditions as the plane had its air conditioning off and the ground air conditioning was not put on. We were swearing in the heat for an hour!! We arrived at our destination and hour and half late!!"
Pros: "Plane was comfortable and new."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Please see comments above about this flight."
Pros: "It was ok fligh"
Cons: "Food was not so good"
Cons: "CDG is a monster. The distances are long . The signage is poor and when I asked for directions the diirections I got were wrong."
Cons: "They loosed our reserved seats, our luggage, food was awful, ground staff was disrespectful."
Pros: "Food was excellent and crew was very nice."
Cons: "Could not check in online before my flight and no zones to board just line up and go apparently."
Pros: "Nice food Right in time Police and customs formalities easy"
Cons: "Poor comfort in business class No entertainment at all"
Pros: "Crew was welcoming"
Cons: "Space between the seats was too small."
Pros: "The seats are spacious. They give you great amenities such as a toothbrush, etc. The crew was very nice. The food was also superb for airplane food."
Cons: "The check in process was terrible at SFO. We all felt like cattle being herded on. It was such a mess. The seats are surprisingly uncomfortable in premium economy. The headrest is not conducive to sleeping."
Cons: "The food: asked for vegetarian but got incipit vegan... Mostly rice with coconut milk"
Pros: "Missed connection and it was airport not Delta that was the problem. Not a good way to start a vacation. Rating is for the Paris Airport, not the flight crew or Air France employees. Still sitting in the airport when we should be at our destination."
Cons: "Hundreds of people missed their flights. Delta had us into Paris with an hour and a half to get to connecting flight. Missed flight due to huge delay in passport approval. They seemed completely unprepared."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "It was one problem after another during check in. And it was difficult to find help in English so I couldn't really tell what was going on. In the end I was tucking to get checked in because they were insisting I use a kiosk but I was telling them that the kiosk said to see an attendee. It was not efficient and I felt like a burden asking for help when there was nothing else I could do on my own."
Cons: "The crew was not very polite."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable with good recline. Food was good, but not excellent."
Cons: "They forgot the snack/breakfast service for the front right section of economy then had to rush it. Overall, the service was good, but some things just seemed off. An attendant call was never answered, etc."
Cons: "Everything. AF changed seats without authorization or notification, separating a mother from her 3 year old daughter. Their entire attitude was "nothing to be done, now board plane and leave" no compensation was offered, nothing done to remedy their mistake or rude behavior and treatment"
Pros: "Nice Flight Attendants Good Food"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1.5 hours"
Pros: "Standard stuff"
Cons: "bad smell around my seat"
Cons: "Meal choice missing kosher non-gluten combination."
Pros: "It was as expected."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit tedious because we had to first board a bus to take us to the airplane."
Cons: "not ONE single smile !!!!"
Cons: "Entertainment totally outdated ! Unresponsive screen"
Pros: "It's a non-stop from Austin to Heathrow. Flight attendants were helpful and professional. Flight was on time."
Cons: "This 747 should be refurbished or retired. I've traveled this flight on 777s and newer 747s. This plane was an embarassment."
Cons: "I was seated at the emergency row. The staff has a policy of collecting the pillows and blankets during take-off from these seats. But they never gave them back to us afterward. Later when I wanted to go to sleep, they could not located these items."
Pros: "The best flight that I have had in my life. Never been a very good traveler going on long distances. Peter came it was great. The number of times there were these snacks and meals offered along with coming up and down the isles with extra cups of juice was really nice. I was fortunate enough To have purchased and reserved in advance and emergency exit I’ll seat which gave me the room that I needed because of my length."
Pros: "For the most part the crew was attentive, kind, sweet, and overall wonderful. Food was good. Great options for vegetarians. Loved the ice cream as snack:). Clean sealed blankets. Loved the movie and tv options. For the most part very happy with service, cleanliness, pilot keeping us informed of delays or anything going on with the flight. Leg space on coach was difficult for tall people and my son's tray table tilted to where he had to put blankets underneath to keep it straight and avoid further spillage."
Cons: "Again the crew has to be informed regarding disabilities. This time an attendant did not allow me to leave my one window closed and said it was due to security and asked to wrap a blanket around my head. Really??? Light streaming into my window was blinding, no time to adjust to the surroundings, light just came through everywhere. Headache ensued even shielding my eyes with the blanket. At least my family helped guide me out. Though head injury is not a visible condition it is still a disability which requires consideration and must not be treated lightly. I perform due diligence to address my disability without extra assistance outside of my family....I only asked for my one window to remain closed. There is still light around enough for people to see more than adequately. This incident is the reason for the 3 stars...because of one crew member...instead of the deserved 5 for everyone else."
Pros: "Entertainment and food"
Cons: "Boarding was slow, and disorganized."
Cons: "The food service had problems. When they got to our row they didn't have any more of our dinners left and without asking I was given a meal from first class with an entree I did not care for. My wife seated next to me gave me half of her entree. Then the snack towards the end of the flight I was given a burrito type thing without asking what flavor I wanted. All in all the food was poor and the attention to the passenger was poor also."
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "Movie system frequently had to be rebooted."
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: "Nice crew, short flight, comfortable seats."
Cons: "Only a small carry-on allowed and one SMALL purse. Also, there is a charge for beverages unless you are in first class."
Pros: "Professional pilots. Good flight."
Cons: "Unprofessional and rude flight attendant. Not enough food available on an 11 hours flight."
Cons: "waiting for boarding waiting for the take off waiting for the meal tired staff broken laguagge at the and no promised phone call from the laguagge department"
Cons: "Showed up 3 hours before departure and still missed our flight. The agents were extremely slow and rude. If you have a giant line of people who have missed their flight your system obviously isn’t working. Avoid Heathrow’s British Airways by all means if possible."
Pros: "Scum bags wanted >$5k to change flights, daylight robbery"
Pros: "Very pleasant crew"
Pros: "Crew is super hospitable and nice"
Cons: "They lost my luggage after I asked when I checked it in LA and when I boarded in SD"
Pros: "The flight was pleasant"
Cons: "That my luggage is not here and I have no idea when I will have it"
Pros: "I require a wheelchair for getting around the airport. When I first checked in at LHR, they claimed to have no record of my wheelchair request and my seat change, despite my very clear notations of who and when these were made. They did have a record of my paying for one suitcase. The agent at LHR promised to make these corrections so I would not have the same problem when returning to London. Furthermore, to turn this into a humiliating situation, at the gate I was informed that the jetway was broken and they would have to find some other way to get me onboard the plane. I cannot believe that British Airways has no contingency plan for a situation like mine. After many discussions between BA reps and ground crewmen they decided to bring me down in a lift at Gate 34, though my plane was at Gate 32. I was then loaded onto the freight platform of one of those food delivery trucks and driven over to my plane. The truck backed into place and again I hoisted up to the plane. However the plane door was locked and we had to bang on it for them to finally open it. To my great embarrassment I helped down the aisle to my assigned seat, looking back at the curious looks and glares from all those passengers who had no explanation for the delay and humiliating scene. Officially the flight was listed at 28 minutes late, when in reality it was 40 minutes till we taxied away from the gate My return flight from Brussels was little better because the changes that were supposed to have been entered at LHR never were and so I had to go through this whole routine again costing me over one hour in delays. Fortunately I was able to board the flight through the jetway and did not have to be hoisted up again, and delivered like freight. How would you rate these flights. I had problems with every single British Airways flight!!"
Pros: "Extended information from the captain was very nice"
Pros: "good entertainment"
Cons: "food was worse than typical airline"
Pros: "the plane was clean"
Cons: "3 hour delay, no communication with customers regarding delay or connection. Once we finally arrived st Heathrow for the 2nd leg of our journey, we were put on a later connection, no apologies whatsoever from any of the employees. Overall we spent over 4 hours in the air. We were never served even a glass of water or a bag of pretzels. The seats were very tight with very little leg room, and I am only a 5'6" female."
Cons: "Boarding the plane. I do not know why the airlines load the people who are at the front of the plane first. Load the people on the back of the plane first. That way, when you call the next section, the people in the back are not blocking people as they enter. An alternative is to call people in sections based on where they sit in a row. If you have window seat, you should be called first. Why? Because so many passengers who have aisle seats have to get up to let people with middle or window seats get in. So, they hold traffic up as people are trying to get to their seats. After window seat passengers get called, then call middle seat passengers, and last, call aisle seat passengers."
Pros: "I was prepared with my smart phone and iPad and external batteries, turns out I needed none of those things! What a pleasant surprise for the in flight movies, music and tv to be perfect. I didn't even have to use my external battery on the flight because there is a perfect USB port in the screen in front of you. The food was as good as airplane good gets, the plane incredibly comfortable and staff was attentive. I don't love the long flights but this BA flight is now my go to anytime Im headed to Europe."
Pros: "If I had another option for a direct flight to London, I'd take that over traveling with BA."
Cons: "They ran out of the meat option for my meal. Understandable but I couldn't eat the veg option either. The flight attendant literally said to me that they had no other food on board - a complete lie of course which I didn't appreciate given the $1500 ticket I paid for the flight."
Pros: "Al parts of flight expertly handled by staff, especially cabin people. Thanks for a great flight, VA."
Pros: "The food was good. They asked for people with carry on to check their baggage at the gate. We were the only ones that did and they rewarded us with priority boarding. Nice touch."
Cons: "Non stop London to San Diego, 10.5 hr flight. Like most airlines the fit was so tight that by the end of the flight I never want to fly again."
Cons: "The seats on this British Airways flight were so tight and pitched forward that my knees were jammed into the seat in front of me and I felt as if I was being launched forward the entire flight. Not comfortable or safe."
Pros: "I wish the menu can be more kid friendly. I enjoy the food no my kiddos"
Pros: "Food and service were first class even in economy seating. British Airways is always my favorite airlines, consistently superior in most areas. The food and beverage on the 24hr flight was very good."
Cons: "The Boeing 747-400 on leg from London to San Diego had the older infotainment system, compared to my first flight. It worked well, however the screen was small, and the in flight flight tracker was dated. Most BA flights have the newer system."
Pros: "Boarding at LHR was so quick. This was my first 747 experience and the boarding process for so many people took less time than other flights I've had with smaller crowds. The entertainment was great, flight staff was very cheery, and there was food being served nearly every two hours..."
Cons: "Seat backs are too thin. You feel every time the person behind you goes into the pocket."
Pros: "The treatment and luxury of being a business/first class passenger. I've been told I was (free) upgraded from economi class to business class. Actually there was no business class,- it was first class. Because after arriving and leaving the aircraft, I walked (like everyone) through the First class,-and it looked exactly like the "business class" I was sitting. I had all the luxury and service a first class passenger had,- from the champagne and all other amazing beverages to the high end luxury dining and of course the amazing service of the flight attendants. I would always choose BA again if Ihave the choice. Even if it's still "just" economy class. BA is just an airline that treats all their passengers as first class member. Thank you BA for this experience. Keep it up and please, never change."
Pros: "Courteous service, and good selection of new movies"
Cons: "Turbulence over the mountains, and steward didn't serve food anymore"
Cons: "Missed the flight and the next flight was to expense had to take a train to my destination and pay $400 extra dollars. Was at airport and checked in 2 hours early sitting at what seemed to be the only London flight going out. Our flight was not listed on the computer monitors and we checked it several times. Our names were not announced over loud speaker and no one helped us to rebook."
Pros: "Service was very good."
Cons: "No choice of main dish for lunch."
Pros: "Everything was excellent, except the entertainment. e."
Cons: "WiFi was a problem. All four flights were delayed. Movie sound was terrible."
Cons: "Seems like the easiest way to make flyers happy is a decent TV with movies on the flight, not this airline. The entertainment consisted of a a 4-6 TV in the back of the seat in front of you that occasionally turned black and white. Time to upgrade that BA!"
Pros: "It was professional ,efficient ,enough service for the 10 hour flight. I would like to see more choices for the music selection."
Cons: "Flights over 10 hours should be on a more comfortable plane with electrical or USB ports. I had an 8 hr flight from jfk to Rome (Finnair/American) was on a very comfortable plane with better entertainment and charging capabilities. however, the 11 hr flight from London to SAN was more cramped, no charging, fewer entertainment selections and all around uncomfortable. I expect more from BA on such long flights."
Pros: "Meals and customer service"
Cons: "Seats. Absolutely no legroom or body room in economy seats. If you are making larger planes, you expect a more comfortable ride. Not the case at all here. In fact in the upright position, you seem captivated"
Pros: "Staff. Ample seat recline."
Cons: "No usb outlets. Dated entertainment. No indiv air flow control. Screw was loose and a metal wire was wrapped around but you couldnn't see it. So, when I reached to turn the broken dial for air the metal wire pierced my finger."
Cons: "Even though we had assigned seats we did not get them. Flight was late to depart and really close to lose our connection flight, which for a flight that is less than 1hr you are hoping that should never happen."
Pros: "It was Mother's Day and also my birthday and we got upgraded to European Travel Plus ( business class). It was great"
Pros: "Food was good, flight attendants on horribly delayed flight still gave good service."
Cons: "Delayed 5.5 hrs, on the way out online check-in wasn't working & got booted out of previously reserved seats into middle of middle 4. Attendants seemed to ignore middle seats. On flight out, entertainment system was down for first 4 hours of 10.5 hour flight. Long international flight & only 1 drink service besides with meal. Prepare against dehydration by bringing your own water. I don't think I will be flying British Airways again in future."
Pros: "Crew was very welcoming"
Cons: "Overall long flight and connection from UK-Chicago-San Diego was dreadful without good food, entertainment"
Pros: "Very friendly crew! Avery pleasent flight overall!! Keep it up! :)"
Cons: "El dia 27/marzo/16 volamos mi esposa, 4 hijos y yo de Madrid a Londres vuelo # 459, el cual llego tarde y perdimos la conexión del vuelo DIRECTO a San Diego # 273, nos mandaron vía Chicago y volvimos a perder la conexión a San Diego por pura lentitud del personal de British, teniendo que dormir en Chicago, nos dieron hospedaje y 100 dlls para cenar para 6 personas (gaste lo doble). Al día siguiente, estuve cerca de 90 minutos batallando para que me imprimieran los pases de abordar porque supuestamente British no había pagado los boletos a American Airlines. Les pido me recompensen con boletos redondos por todas estos inconvenientes. Saludos y gracias, Fernando Vizcarra"
Cons: "The flight from Phil to San Diego did not have tvs on board and when I was flying from San Diego to London the flight was an hour and half late for take off because the crew arrived late."
