Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Firstly the flight was delayed, these things happen but nevertheless I end up missing my connecting Qatar flight to Belgrade, put into a horrible little hotel for 24hrs without my bag, no clothes or toiletries. At one point during the flight once everyone had their chairs reclined one hostess told me to not put mine so far back?!?! Then when asked well then person in front of me has to move theirs forward and her response no they don’t. Absolutely shocking. To think I wanted to upgrade to business class. I’m traveling the globe over the next year and thought let me try Qatar but never again with this type of service and how they treat their customers."

Cons: "however there was no internet and bad entertainment. You couldnt really navigate on Oryx One and it was hard to select the autoplay or map.

It also took 3 hours because of UAE and Qatar :("
Cons: "Leg rooml"
Pros: "The flight from Doha to Beirut was not fully booked, we could move easily."

Pros: "Extra leg room, very courteous crew, and pretty decent food. What’s not to like? I have had only very good experiences with Qatar so far."
Pros: "First time flying on Qatar and must say that the crew was excellent. One of the best crews I have ever flown in the last 22 years of New York - India sector. Special mention for HAIFA my hostess for flight QR702 on April 12th. She was the best hostess I have ever had!"

Cons: "Complimentary hotel for 10 hours layover is needed whether or not if it's an economic passenger. Air stewardess can improve basic English pronounciation of English is her / his second language."
Cons: "Hi I travelled on 7/16 from Philadelphia to Cairo through the Jordanian airline . Unfortunately the luggages didn't reach to Cairo airport with me . 3 days later they told me that the luggages in Jordan and I have to travel from Alexandria city to Cairo to receive my luggages . When I went their , I found my luggages were opened and missing much items . I made reports on the airport. The employees in the airport they wondered why the opened the selling box , and the box looks empty. The weight for this box was 32 kilograms in the time of shipping. And I paid $400 for extra weight . But when I received it was like 20 kilograms. Plus I paid $350 for Qater airline for shipping 3 luggage . That's means I paid $750 for shipping 3 luggages and I received it looks empty . I need refund for all shipping and $5000 for damages items , or I will complain this airlines through the American court . Thank you"
Pros: "Food was good. Service was great. Bathrooms were clean. Refreshing experience."

Pros: "Cabin crew friendly and efficient, great service"
Pros: "They don't charge you for any seat in economy class"
Cons: "The boarding process feels very hostile, they are not nice and you are threaded as a terrorist (while they smile at you during the process). Since a new policy of TSA according to them, you cannot take your computer with you in the plane. This means that working in your way back is very hard and you will be loosing the day which is very uneficient. But what was even worse, is that they didn't allow me to check my bag in the last connection gettting to the US, instead they made me check it from my original destination which made me loose almost two days of work without giving me a logic response on why I couldn't check my bag from my inbound flight to the US. By the way, this protocol from TSA is terrible. No internet in their flights No chargers plugs in all of their flights (including the ones that take you more than 4 hours) Lunch in their 15 hours flight is mediocre, everyone was starving since they only gave us one mini empanada."

Cons: "We normally fly business class, but this was a quick side trip so we settled for economy."

Cons: "Food The seat were terrible The next flight rebooked because the first fight were delayed"
Pros: "Lounge facilities"
Cons: "There was no place to keep my Cell phone , eyeglasses, or even the book I was reading--- would have liked an alcove or cubby. Loved this feature in Business class when I flew with Emirates.

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "No drink/snack service because of shorter flight times."

The pilots did an excellent job of keeping us updated, kept things as smooth as possible with the bad weather and we had plenty of movies and games to choose"
Cons: "I was charged an extra $100 because my bag was 10lbs overweight. Where is this crazy fee communicated on their website? And why does it have to be so much? I didn't have a way to weigh our bag before we left. I had no idea it was so heavy - ridiculous price."
Pros: "Crew was great, just not very much room."
Cons: "Larger seat room."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Food was excellent"

Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant spoke like a robot. Could not understand her."
Pros: "Flight was safe, smooth & fast."

Cons: "Nothing at all great service"

Pros: "I liked booking/purchasing my ticket on Kayak on June 3rd."
Cons: "I did not like arriving for my 4:50 PM EST flight at 4:10 PM EST and being told there is no way I can make my flight. The crew at CVG’s Delta desk is incredibly uninspiring and not helpful at all. A lot can be done in 40 minutes and they made little to no effort helping me make my flight or to get me on another flight on 6/13 that would get me home to Colorado Springs the same day."
Pros: "CVG isn't a huge airport, but it has a good amount of things to keep you entertained/well fed."
Cons: "CVG security line isn't terrible, but there seemingly is ALWAYS a decent wait. When a flight is full, like this one, it's never very comfortable – even a short flight."
Pros: "Boarding was fine. And service was good."
Cons: "TV controls didn’t work. So I couldn’t watch anything for the 4+ hour flight."
Cons: "The attendants at the delta counter in the airport were very rude and told us we were nit elite member when in Lima and Mexico was at the contrary"

Pros: "Nice and attentive staff, smooth on and off."
Pros: "I fly non Rev so it's great to fly economy comfort for free"
Cons: "Seats were available so not a bad experience. Sometimes not knowing if I'll make the flight is unnerving. It's worth it however for the flight benefit I book directly through Delta so very curious how and why Kayak is requesting this survey"
Pros: "Delta made sure my husband and I had seats together and my husband was thrilled to have a window seat. We took off and arrived earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "Everything was perfect. Nothing negative to report."
Cons: "I have never been to Billings, so I find it rather difficult to review this flight that I have never been on."
Cons: "had to check my carryon which got WET sitting outside to be loaded on the plane. It was a cloth bag."
Pros: "The crew chief"
Cons: "Water not to top; towel holder broken. 20 minutes for wheel chair to arrive"
Pros: "Didn't nickel and dime us about snacks or entertainment. Warned us about turbulence, but it wasn't too bad, thanks to the pilot for doing his best to keep us on an even keel. Did not feel,squished in the "comfort" or Premium Economy seats. In the lowered expectations world of modern air travel, this was relatively OK, which means I recommend it and would fly with them again."
Cons: "I told you my daughter's birthdate, you know her age, don't require me to call you and wait on hold for 30+ minutes for her to not be seated by herself."

Cons: "No complaints here"
Pros: "Really surprised to see that Deltas new 737's had free in seat entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was a little awkward."

Cons: "Seating is too crowded"
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was amazing"
Cons: "Bigger seats the new ones are way to narrow"
Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."

My daughter and my KLM approved baggage were taken by the boarding crew while allowing other passengers to go with more than allowed"
Cons: "Delay due to strike"

I will recommend KLM whenever I can"
Cons: "the headrest is hard. Apart from that- all was fine"

Cons: "Flight cancelled"

Pros: "I love the food"
Pros: "Very pleased with KLM - efficiency all round and especially the baggage handling at Schipol swhere I had 20 minutes to transfer and my baggage came back with me to the UK which is no mean feat given the hustle and bustle of such a large airport"

Pros: "Good services!"
Pros: "The leg room, was surprisingly roomy"

Pros: "Really friendly staff. Great service"
Cons: "Super delayed. Could have fixed the issue BEFORE we were sitting on tha plane for TWO hours"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "the connection flights was the worse! The gate was changed in Amsterdam 3 times! From D82 to C6 and then to C11. The distance between B82 and C was 20-30 minutes walk. No rushing was needed though, the flight was delayed for 1:30h and after we all boarded a further delay was announced. I will never fly with KLM."
Cons: "Please Endeavour to put the expiration date on the food served in the flight."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Could have gone to Amsterdam and come back in that time"
Pros: "Just great crew."
Cons: "Not comfortable at all and will not book KLM again."
Pros: "Helpful and smiling cabin crew."
Cons: "Tiny old cramped plane."
Pros: "787 is a great airplane. The 3-3-3 seat configuration leaves enough seat width to be just comfortable in coach."
Pros: "The flight attendants could not do enough for you."
Cons: "Business class was pretty empty but again I was not allowed to change my seat selection online. Pathetic check-in."

Cons: "Two hours delay in the start."
Pros: "I was upgraded to Buisness so, no complaints"
Cons: "No Marlboro light cigarettes on the duty free shopping cart"
Pros: "The cabin crew, the flight and communication and the cleanliness of the plane."
Cons: "It was really unclear which desk to use at Birmingham airport to check in. It was extremely stressful for a first time flier as I had no idea what to do - the desk location wasn't marked clearly and when no staff were there it wasn't clear that the desk was open."
Pros: "Efficiency and speed of boarding was acceptable. I have no complaints about that aspect. The Comfort+ seats were worth the upgrade, pretty comfortable and reasonable legroom unless you have a big carry on stowed under the seat in front of you."
Cons: "The first announcement they made to all of us in the economy section was thay they did not have any headphones for anyone but business class. I was told when I booked the seat that the headphones would be complementary. So I did not bother to bring any assuming they were going to keep their word; I figure I'd make it work and watch a movie without sound. If that isn't bad enough midway through my nine hour flight my monitor went out and would not turn back on."
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Economy was very tight! Seats were uncomfortable"
Cons: "I slept didn't have snack offered and no entertainment"

Pros: "Both crew and the seat were great. Friendly staff."
Cons: "It was all perfect."
Cons: "Was excellent"
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"
Cons: "Just wish there was another few inches width on seats"
Pros: "The crew was incredible"
Pros: "The Food, the Drinks,the Comfort and most of all the Friendly Crew. It was a wonderful flight and that should be considered as a complement coming from an Irishman. Many Thanks. Patrick"
Cons: "There was nothing that I did not like about this flight."
Pros: "BA always has a wonderful crew and I really enjoy flying with them!"
Cons: "One of my bags didn’t arrive. Hopefully it will be delivered to me as they promised ☹️"
Cons: "Old entertainment systems. No charging for phones."
Cons: "outdated inflight entertainment system generally worn and old plane"

Cons: "We ate rice or pasta from America to London, London to Accra, Accra to London and London to America."
Pros: "The ride was very smooth! Pilot did a great job!"
Cons: "The leg room and ovearall size was very small. My husband couldn't fit his knees in ."
Cons: "Major delay. No free beverages on board."
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!"
Cons: "Boarding takes longer on BA than any other airline I've flown on. Breakfast was awful. Cream cheese on a white roll tastes like paste. You'll really could be doing better than this."
Pros: "Late taking off, but made up time in the air."
Cons: "For a long flight, it is very cramped."
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....."
Cons: "Seats didn't recline, no entertainment, no beverage or food service. Delayed leaving and landing and the ground crew couldn't find a working jet bridge further delaying the disembarkment. I almost missed my connection despite a 90 minite layover."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and the hot dinner and light breakfast were good."
Cons: "The seats were very cramped in economy. There was very little room to move in our seats, and the knees of the fellow behind me were against the back of my seat."
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."
Pros: "almost nothing"
Cons: "waiting long time for check no meal on board"
Pros: "Great staff, ultra professional"
Pros: "I guess that a 3-hour delay on departure turned into only a 2 1/2 hour delay on arrival."
Cons: "The boarding process was everyone for themselves. No priority boarding at all - except for handicapped. After that, it was catch as catch can - even if you were first class or business class. The audio selection was the most sparse I've ever seen. Only 5 titles in classical music. Also, the movie "library" had only 5 choices. The flight map was a dated version. On other BA flights, there has been excellent attention to detail in Club World. This one was very poor."
Pros: "On time, polite crew."
Pros: "Oh my gosh.... I had the best flight ever. I wanted to be in Business Class, but the flight was so full, but when I sat down, there was an EMPTY SEAT next to me. What a beautiful thing. Flight was great, quiet and comfortable. Boarding was great and I enjoyed the my flight. Thank you:)"

Cons: "No room in the seats. I'm not heavy and was almost unable to move."
Cons: "Completely messed up departure time, poor maintenance and old aircraft. Grumpy service"
Cons: "The plane takeoff time was delayed by almost two hours. When we got to Oakland, waiting for the luggage took an exceptionally long time. Don't understand why we couldn't sit in the waiting room until a "certain time" before getting on the plane, we had to wait outside in a hall with no seats. The room was not being used by anyone else."
Pros: "crew was friendly"
Cons: "Waiting 20 min to board , then waiting half an hour on the plane after that"
Cons: "delays, loud drunk in boarding area in Amsterdam that had been removed from his flight,"
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."
Cons: "Charging for coffee and tea? Tacky."
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."
Cons: "baggage was lost"
Pros: "Food, movies, crew were all great"
Cons: "Sitting with not enough leg room for 12 hours. I am 6 ft tall, and I made it work mostly, but needed a neck pillow that I brought to fall asleep, and it wasn't for very long. Just feeling the pinch!"
Pros: "Lots of luggage space, even in the back. Infotainment system takes away the pain of flying steerage class."
Cons: "Was in the final row of a 777-400 series. Super small 4 across seats and limited recline."
Pros: "The service was excellent. Really liked the economy plus section and the little perks made a big difference."
Cons: "The steak was overcooked. The baggage return added an hour to my trip home (I know this is likely a JFK problem) They are still handing out landing cards and asking you to fill them out at JFK for US passports--stop!"
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"
Pros: "Efficient staff, quick boarding of passengers, staff went the extra mile to verifiy that my puppy was safely being transferred from another British air plane and then I watched through the window as he was boarded on my flight to AMS. Caring employees directed my attention out the window, prior to me boarding. A happy sight watching my puppy boarding my plane. Comforting!"
Pros: "Staff are excellent, really friendly, respectful service. Food (expensive as always on planes) but excellent quality, really good choice to use M&S as providers. Excellent communication from pilot and cabin staff on delays before takeoff."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Why no service in first class?"
Pros: "The price of the ticket was great."
Cons: "The flight was crowded, no overhead bin space from passengers putting coats and jackets in the bin instead of under their seats. I was in the middle seat between two large men breathing down on me while they slept. It was a nightmare. On a flight that long the seats shouldn’t be that close in proximity nor should larger passengers be allowed to sit in seats too small for their body type. That’s not discrimination that’s logical."
Pros: "Liked we actually made it."
Cons: "Another delayed American Airlines flight where the temperature in the cabin was as the overall apathy of the employees."
Cons: "The jerks left early despite the fact that security and baggage were backed up. We ran to our gate and barely missed the flight. Jerks! Who leaves early when so many passengers are missing?!"

Cons: "How about departing on time! Almost 3 hours after our advertised departure time is ridiculous!"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and well organized. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "By the time the snack service was completed, the plane was already descending and the crew had to pick up the service items before people had a chance to finish."
Pros: "Clear communication on flight boarding"
Cons: "Attendant could have been more friendly."
Pros: "CLT to LGA Airbus expérience was as pleasant as ever. The flight attendant on the regional EMB from LGA to YUL was exceptional."
Cons: "Due to missed connection, computer booked me on later flight, but in the wrong class (i.e., not first class as ticketed). Very helpful agent at O'Hare was able to remedy this though (didn't get her name. 6/25/19 at help desk near O'Hare gate L4, 7PM)"
Pros: "Would’ve loved if the flight from Louisville to Charlotte weren’t delayed 2 hours for mechanical reasons!"

Pros: "Courteous crew and staff"
Cons: "Check bags online for all flights"
Pros: "We didn’t crash."
Cons: "Very confused as to why I am receiving messages regarding confirming flight and post flight review when I did not purchase this flight. I watched it, did NOT book it. I should not be charged for it."

Pros: "Amenities were about on par with other international airlines. The entertainment console was wonderful. The trip was more quickly than expected."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. We were there 2.5 hours before our flight and had to rush to make it on time due to the awful lines for the checking our bags and general disorganization of American Airlines. The staff on the plane missed our row when offering drinks near the end of the flight and were not careful about bumping elbows and shoulders as they frequented the aisle. Also couldn't sit by my family which was a huge bummer."
Pros: "Flight was under booked so there was plenty of room."
Cons: "Crew was unexpectedly loud/chatty with one another throughout the flight, even when things were quite and calm they were calling over our heads to one another and laughing loudly. Initially, it's an international flight from Spain and no crew members in my section atleast could speak Spanish. I had to help a passenger who only spoke spanish because the attendant kept repeating an order in english, just getting louder each time."
Pros: "Flight attendant, David, was extremely professional and nice."
Pros: "Excellent service and airplane. Just need better Entertsinment system ( more updated ) and more programs and movies to watch."

Pros: "Entertainment was good."

Pros: "Lots of in-flight entertainment and plenty of service."
Cons: "Food choices left something to be desired but still good. I was in the middle seat, which nobody likes but other than that, it worked out."
Pros: "Nothing good to say at all about American Airlines. #IHATEAMERICANAIRLINES"
Cons: "We boarde on time, however there was no air conditioning or lighting on. After fully boarding we were told the pilots were going to be an hour delayed coming in! Oh yeah, and the fancy new seats don't have power outlets. #IHateAmericanAirlines"
Pros: "smooth check in and boarding etc"
Cons: "Wifi wasn't working so no entertainment"
Pros: "It's not the person at the gate's fault. She tried to be very informative and kind."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled to leave at 630am. It's currently 945am and I'm still in the airport. Now a new maintenance issue was found. Flying is a first world luxury with first world problems."
Pros: "It was fine. Nothing special, nothing wrong. On time."
Pros: "I liked having in flight entertainment available. The flight crew was very friendly and allowed me to change seats once boarding was completed to be more comfortable."

Cons: "After paying for a seat upgrade when I booked the ticket, I was forced to pay a second upgrade fee just to sit only 12 rows further back than the seat I paid for. The excuse given by the airline was that they had changed planes and the new plane didn't have a seat 13F. Instead, the equivalent was row 40. I was told that I could pay more and more up to row 25, but that all the lower rows were full. When I asked the service rep to refund the difference, I was told I had to fill out a form online. I was told there are no humans with whom a customer can speak that can process a refund."
Pros: "The flight was not only on time, but a little early!! The flight crew were fantastic & the plane looked new. Everything went according to plan which rarely happens these days!!!"
Cons: "Entertainment screen didn't work, luckily someone let me switch seats so I would get bored"

Cons: "That the flight from Nashville to LA was delayed then cancelled due to maintenance issues and then my follow up flight to Dallas was delayed so I couldn't make the connecting flight from Dallas to LA, leaving me stuck in Dallas Fort Worth, to spend the night till a morning flight. Making me miss my first day on a new job!"
