Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Water station!"
Cons: "Information on when we can check in on upcoming flights. Other airlines we have booked for flights will email us 24 hours prior to departure. Virgin Atlantic did not. I had to call and I was directed to their web site and was able to check in on line. Thanks"
Cons: "Very cramped aisle seat and I kept being knocked by passing crewe including knocking over a cup of water."
Pros: "Decent crew, nice snacks."
Cons: "Wifi shonky - didn’t work most of the way. Entertainment app didn’t work. Lengthy delay."
Pros: "There was one stewardess that really made the trip feel less "restricted" in the way she would greet, talk, serve, and just being what I always experienced good international flight staff to be. I wish I was able to get her name so I can praise the airlines for hiring such a great staff like her."
Pros: "Karl was amazing! So helpful and sweet!"
Cons: "Having the crew tell the guy behind me to plug in his ear phones to watch the video in his phone, rather than me after 20 minutes of noise."
Pros: "The crew was outstanding and the good choices were excellent"
Cons: "The flight was late( not their fault) and there were several technical difficulties with the A/C and entertainment system"
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "Poor communication about the reasons for our 4 hour delay. Also, we purchased Economy X, which should have given us priority boarding, but we were told we had to stand in the general admission queue."
Pros: "The airplane was quiet My seat did not recline, but was seated in a different place where the seat reclined Bathrooms were clean and plenty"
Cons: "The remote controls for the entertainment system That you can’t reach the vents when you have to be buckled"
Pros: "Limited numbers in the top deck, silence, service and deplaning first."
Cons: "Food has to much of an asian slant."
Pros: "Virgin Atlantic offers good service at a reasonable price to/from the US to London. Good food service and unbelieveable number of movies and entertainment to choose from."
Cons: "The seating and leg room in economy classic were inadequate. We felt way too confined in our seats and the leg room was a joke. I am only 6' tall and this was unacceptable. We will try to upgrade for the return trip."
Pros: "The flight crew was phenomenal, especially Daniella. Somehow we wound up with seats right next to the bathroom door, which would have been a pretty uncomfortable situation for a variety of reasons, but the flight wasn't full, and she helped us find a suitable place to sit. Also, my wife and I usually take our tea with honey vs. milk and sugar. Even though honey is usually one of the options for tea, she found a way to accommodate our request. The lunch meals were the best I can remember in a long time on an airline flight. They might have been the best I've ever had. The chicken curry was authentic, flavorful and spicy. Frankly my outbound flight had problems. My luggage got damaged. The transfer experience in Manchester left a LOT to be desired. I wasn't planning to use Virgin Atlantic again, but this flight crew (Daniella especially) redeemed Virgin Atlantic. They were attentive, pleasant, diligent."
Cons: "Only thing I didn't like about this flight was the boarding area. Once you get into that the area, you don't really have access to appetizing food (only vending machines) or even restrooms. That's one thing that could be improved."
Cons: "Bed was incredibly uncomfortable in first class. It was like sleeping on the floor. People talking loudly in the bar late into the night, which made it even harder to sleep. Didn’t sleep a wink on this 10 hour flight."
Pros: "Fast boarding, not a crowded flight, ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Paid extra for my check in bag."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and attentive"
Cons: "The entertainment system was not good. The touch screen was not calibrated and very hard to select and scroll through. The flight was over a hour late so we missed our connection. Got rebooked okay, but after traveling for 18 hours having to wait three extra hours was a drag."
Cons: "Incredibly uncomfortable, not enough minimum space to fit my knees behind seat in front when front passenger reclined. 6 hours is too long to have a metal rod sticking straight into your knee caps. Shoulders were squished between other passengers and had to sit twisted the whole way and Im not a large person, but am 6ft. Cabin crew impolite and unhelpful. Food was awful and made my friend sick."
Pros: "Flight was close to being on time. I was able to get a lot of sleep on the flight."
Pros: "Good Service. Great attitude of flight attendants..early arrival. smooth flight."

Cons: "Check-in was a bit of a hassle as kiosk would not accept our details but agent was able to resolve the problem"
Pros: "Virgin Premium economy offers a great up-grade on economy. Seperate check in (faster), seperate boarding (earlier), better food, service and more room than economy."
Cons: "There appears to have been an increase in cost above that you expect percentage wise. There has been reduction in the quality of the food."
Pros: "The crew were excellent."
Cons: "Seats were ridiculously uncomfortable. The seat cushions were worn and had no padding. Very few movie, Show, music and game choices to choose from. The audio input didn't work in my seat. Major fail for a 13+ hour flight."

Cons: "The cups for water and juice were very small."
Pros: "There was no food or entertainment, but for such a short flight that's fine"
Cons: "It's so confusing when they list Virgin and Delta interchangeably, when you're not exactly sure which you're going to get. And in my experience, there is a huge difference between the two, so I prefer to know exactly which airline will be servicing me. Just be more clear in listing on flight info. This was not a Virgin flight, it was a Delta one."
Pros: "More leg room space in the economy space"
Cons: "I'm over 6 feet tall so the seat in the economy class I felt really uncomfortable."

Cons: "Best option across the pond"
Pros: "Every one but the gate agent at Detroit going to Seattle at 7:40 loading time on 4-11-19. She was mean and curt and would not get my seat corrected I had to sprint for at least a mile to even make it. We landed the same time they were boarding"
Cons: "The attendants on the Detroit to Seattle flight suggested I go talk to the gate agent to get my seat corrected. They said the flight was not full. So I did. To be greeted again by the mean agent you told me to take my rear and get it on the plane that the attendants didn’t know anything"
Pros: "The flight was very good in both directions. I was quite comfortable. On my return flight I left my e-reader on the plane. I didn't realize it until 2 days later. I called Delta and spoke with Tiffany. She was so helpful. She located my e-reader and I was able to go to the airport and pick it up."
Cons: "Carry brewed decaf coffee."
Cons: "delayed flight"
Pros: "There were minimal passengers on the flight so I was able to have the entire row to myself. The flight was also very short which is always nice."
Pros: "Able to watch a movie, even though can't finished it."
Cons: "LATE DEPARTURE, LATE ARRIVAL IN ATLANTA. Good thing I brought some snacks. My seat was changed to the window (I hated it) instead of aisle as I pickedbefore when I checked in in Amsterdam. I should buy Virgin Air ticket for my round trip ATL-Ams vv, saved me about $250, if I knew it would be late"
Pros: "The inflight entertainment options were nice, I enjoyed the flight status option, and the USB port was very helpful."
Cons: "Three hour delay due to wiring issues, cramped seating that made it impossible to get even the most basic of maps, and our flight attendant was upset that we didn't notify them that we were vegans in advance. We didn't know that they had vegan options, and weren't upset about not eating the in-flight meals. She was much more upset about it than we were and it made me uncomfortable refusing the food that I knew I couldn't eat. Other passengers even asked us if we had eaten anything. It was almost embarrassing."
Pros: "The nice staff and entertainment options."
Cons: "I usually fly delta and have a great experience - unfortunately my flight from Detroit to Seattle was not. To start off, i was flying with two other people and we were not able to get seats together, and the whole seating process with delta is really difficult even when I had called weeks in advance to see if they could try and seat us together. I understand with main cabin tickets you can only choose your seat as you check in, but it would be nice to be able to request seating with a person/group you are flying with. I was placed in the very back row of a busy flight, and noticed that the horrible smell from the bathrooms which made it unpleasant. As said above, I normally have a pleasant experience.. but being a delta sky member I feel as though i do not really receive any differences as to a non-member. I hope this review helps for the next customers! Thank you."
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."
Pros: "The Delta Help Desk at the airport was actually pretty helpful for the times I had to use them."
Cons: "Flight was delayed....3 times(more?) from late at night to early morning the next day. Delta Help Desk rescheduled me and got me a room at Howard Johnson’s for the night. Called HoJo’s to confirm they had non-smoking rooms available. Got on the hotel’s shuttle bus and the driver announced that HoJo was full and all voucher holders would go to Rodeway Inn but those without vouchers would go to HoJo....huh!?? Called HoJo and the same person I’d spoken to 20 mins prior said it was correct, that Rodeway was a sister property. The Rodeway Inn Metro Airport is pretty disgusting. This is my opinion after coming from remote Mexico and extensive travel in Africa. It should be torn down. Delta/HoJo should not send customers there."
Pros: "everything was perfect. Even though our flight was international the delta airline app allowed us to complete check in process without major delays. - 5 star in flight service and flight attendant personnel"
Cons: "I liked everything"
Pros: "Swift travel!"
Pros: "Even though we were in the very back row, we did not experience a foul smell from the restrooms. This was a very nice relief. It is bad enough that the seats don't recline and there is no window in the very back row but prior experience with the added nausea of foul restroom order has been a serious insult to injury. In this case there was really minimal odor. Also since we are traveling as a family we are very happy that we were seated together. We have experienced the past that sometimes our seats will be fragmented and that creates major challenges when you are traveling with young children. However on this particular flight the ride was rough during both takeoff and landing, a lot of side to side shimmy. Also the cabin pressure varied quite a bit during landing causing all the kids to complain about some discomfort in their ears."
Cons: "When I bought my ticket last Nov , I paid extra to select seats, only to discover no aisle seats available for the 15 hour flight from LAX to Guanghzou. I tried many times to call CSA LA office using toll free and regular number, but could never speak to a human. Last November 7 I missed my flight home due to the Thai King's motorcade causing the road I was on to be closed for more one hour. I arrived at the CNXairport nearly one hour before the scheduled departure time, only to find CSA check in counters already closed. CSA Bangkok made me pay for a one way ticket home on Nov 8 even though all 3 flights were not full. I arrived well I'm advance and checked in. CSA began boarding 30 minutes before the time shown on my boarding pass and closed the aircraft doors shortly aftethe boarding time listed. No wonder I missed my Nov 7 flight! I wrote CSA LA a letter including the receipt for the one way ticket and requested a refund or at least a reply or home call. I never received a reply. I have flown CSA/Delta from Detroit, MI to Chiang Mai, Thailand 5 or 6 times in the last 3 years. It seems they don't care about customer loyalty. In the future CSA will not be my first choice and I will pay somewhat more to fly another airline."
Cons: "Sat on the plane on the tarmac for over an hour in the cold..."
Cons: "Flights on time"
Pros: "I really enjoyed the just a little bit larger seats, extra leg room, and the ability to watch a movie on a screen that wasn't my iphone 6 screen."
Cons: "It would be nice to have gluten-free snack options on the flight, since I have to be gluten-free."
Pros: "Helpful crew Good food"
Cons: "Our luggage came back damaged and open !"
Pros: "The crew is brilliant Punctual, spot on... 100% service delivery"
Cons: "Boarding of all economy passengers was done on first come and stand in line, first served basis with no zone separation. This caused aisle congestion. I was randomly asked to check in my standard size carry one although many passengers with larger bags were allowed to take them with them. Overall there was a lack of planned approach."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "The food was excellent, and the crew was nice"
Cons: "There was a delay on the boarding and they didn't provide a reason."
Pros: "Airbus 330 from Manchester to SFO was new, spacious and very comfortable. One of the best flights we’ve had across the pond."
Cons: "Transiting at Manchester between our Frankfurt to SFO flights was dreadful. They made us go through security and the inspectors were so incompetent they caused a huge back-up. Took an hour to get through. Avoid Manchester. Then they lost my luggage...still missing after a week."
Pros: "Not and horrible waited for 10hour before we board the last journey"
Cons: "Is horrible will not use kayak again we want to change the flight we were told not changeable"
Pros: "Crew very good"
Cons: "Could not check in online or get seat reservations in advance (other flights for journey allowed us to choose seats when we booked flights). This meant we were sitting separately and groundstaff suggested we were on standby, which we definitely weren't! Very irritating and unnecessary."
Cons: "Highly recommended for efficiency"
Cons: "I was trying to extend my ticket but no one was answering my call last 2 days so I misssed my flight no refund nothing"
Cons: "The Cabin seating"
Pros: "There were many comforts to the plane even in economy."

Cons: "40 minute delay in departure due to late arrival of incoming aircraft."
Pros: "Entertainment on Detroit flight was great as well as the seating, food, and crew.."
Pros: "Not a long flight, overhead lockers had space although I wasn't helped to find somewhere. Crew lovely otherwise."
Cons: "Boarding from a connecting flight wasn't enough time, esp as our duty free purchases were selected for additional screening. Food was identical to what we had been offered on previous flight, and the outbound one."
Pros: "Great service, great crew! If available, will choose Lufthansa for my next flight! Friendly crew, smooth flying, great entertainment choices."
Cons: "Connection very very tight and stressful Had to run to connecting flight and just made it by <1 minute"
Cons: "Boarding was a zoo as the system was down -not very organized either. There was one crew member who was extremely rude and even as people boarded by her section did not greet people. Skipped a few rows with drinks and then told them there was no time to bring even a glass of water. Fortunately another crew member (who we also asked as they went by) brought water to those she had skipped who wanted it. My TV monitor was not working. Aging planes - need a thorough cleaning. The announcements were garbled and very difficult to hear."
Pros: "Crew. Courteous, engaging and supportive, of-course with a smile."
Cons: "Nothing on this flight"
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work most of flight and when it did required payment."
Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Waiting in the line long then expect"
Pros: "Crews were very friendly"
Cons: "Manchester Airport couldn’t organise a bus to take us off the plane. Stuck on a landed plane for ever."
Pros: "Flight was on time, boarding went smoothly. Seats not too comfy, knee room seems to be shrinking with every flight (transatlantic routes mostly)."
Cons: "I like wathcing European movies (German, French, etc.) when flying LH, but unfortunately they rarely have English subtitles."
Pros: "Great business class seats. Plenty of room and comfortable."
Pros: "I arrived at my destination completely unstressed."
Cons: "Security checks, but this is unavoidable"
Pros: "The temperature was moderate, not as cold as ususl. Stewards were very nice."
Cons: "Our seats were at the very back and the flight was quite bumpy at times. It left a bit late due to passengers not showing up and having to remove luggage. They wouldn't allow my husband to use his backpack as a personal item he had to count it as a carryon despite others having more carryon items."
Pros: "Not much at all"
Cons: "I was enquiringly about the transfer of my luggage from the Hurghada flight with sunexpress with one of the Lufthansa correspondents at the central fest and the guy was absolutely clueless. Needless to say- our luggage wasn’t in Manchester when we arrived. Had to travel back to Manchester to collect it 8 hours later as it was left in Munich. Not happy one bit"
Pros: "The service was fast. The employees were kind."
Cons: "Food on flight Detroit - Frankfurt was terrible."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time. Efficient service."
Cons: "None. The seats on this Airbus 320 were more comfortable on this leg than on the transatlantic leg of the journey."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful."
Cons: "Food for Indian vegetarian meal was very poor. Idea of chickpeas in transatlantic flight is not good! Crew did help out and offer another option!"
Pros: "Both parts of flight was superb n/a"
Pros: "Good connection time and easy to get through security"
Cons: "Passports had to be checked and it delayed boarding. Everyone was frustrated"
Cons: "entertainment was not working! the flight to Frankfurt was late and I missed the connection to rome! crew told me to run for the connection but ad the gate they told me they had already put me on a later flight! no need to run like crazy across the airport if they had me already booked me on a later flight! missed my train connection in rome to bari...asked the airport lufthansa rep. to put me on a flight to bari but they told me they couldn't do it although there was a flight available!"
Pros: "Everything! The service of the flight attendants, in full ugh entertainment."
Cons: "Everything was great. I would say that I didn't like the automation and self serve check in at Munich Airport not because it wasn't easy or efficient, but because I love human interactions. I know this is the way society is tending, towards automation, but I don't love it. I prefer to speak to a real person. Thank you for reading."
Pros: "Service is outstanding in economy and puts US airlines to shame. Lufthansa is the best way to fly to Europe."
Cons: "Clearing passport control in Frankfurt is very slow. The setup is not very good for a world class airport. You need to give yourself at least an hour."
Pros: "Tans it time to Amman is too long and that is the most distressing"
Pros: "Comfortalble trip"
Cons: "Boarding delay"
Cons: "Not well organized and food is unhealthy"
Pros: "The Lufthansa flight and crew were fantastic. Nice plane with amenities. It was far better than our return flight on Air Canada."
Cons: "My return on Air Canada."
Cons: "Being asked, when other passengers were around me, how much money I cary with me. This is a dangerous thing. I don't know whom I travel with, and I felt at risk knowing that other people know how much cash I have with me. Plus, the money were counted on the passageway to the plane, with people walking by. I strongly believe that you should change the method you ask and check passengers for cash. I heard other details that I shouldn't hear from another women who was also checked. What I ask is PRIVACY."
Cons: "By the time my daughter got through security the gate had closed and her ticket didn't allow for any opportunity for her to get another flight. Would not book again using Lastminute.com, nor Lufthansa, as they provided a lack of service and no help for her to change her flight - even though the ticket was nearly €200 and she was clearly distressed and upset."
Pros: "Overall, was good!"
Pros: "as usual flight itself was okay"
Cons: "no major complaints"
Pros: "Crew passed out drinks and food as passengers requested. Very very courteous and extremely caring. Airport, boarding, and everything else went flawlessly."
Cons: "I don't know whether it was the airplane or the seats, but something was squeaking for the entirety of the two hour flight"
Pros: "The flight from DTW to FRA was made that much better by a particular flight attendant who actually remembered it was my first time flying. She checked with me personally as we were disembarking in FRA to see how my flight was. I unfortunately did not catch her name, but she was the highlight of the flight. If I fly again, I will definitely fly Lufthansa for flight crew like her. I skipped the evening meal as I was feeling unwell, but I had the breakfast. The fresh fruit, and especially the watermelon was delicious. There just wasn't enough of it."
Cons: "The seat cushion was rather stiff and made the 8-hour-long flight just a tad uncomfortable."
Cons: "The fact that they gave my Aunt a hard time about the tickets that was bought for her, because we did not know that when a heavy person books a flight that they need one ticket and a xtra seat, but instead of working with her because she had two tickets they were very rude to her and told her she was not going to be able to come to america that when she got to Manchester she would have to go back to Germany. We were never told what happened to the other ticket since it was not used."
Pros: "On time and friendly crew"
Pros: "The food was good and the crew members were very friendly and caring."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by about 2 hours but we still made it to Germany with enough time to catch the Moscow flight and check out the duty free stores."

Pros: "The plane size & comfort was excellent. The staff were very friendly"
Cons: "Still don’t have my luggage yet"
Pros: "Flight arrived on time"

Pros: "The crew was informative"
Cons: "Inflight sandwiches"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and food was very good"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on the flight from Vancouver to Amsterdam and this on top of a two hour delay in taking off which led us to have to literally run to our gate in Amsterdam to make the connection to Mumbai"
Cons: "KLM was not prepared to get wheel chair passenger off plane. Cost me delay of 1 hour. I will never fly KLM again."
Pros: "Everything was smooth and effortless."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything."
Cons: "They check for everything in the counter as if it was a low cost airline. If you go a kilo more over your baggage allowance you have to pay 100 eur. And for your cabin luggage you only have 12 kg that they check you twice and they have security staff at the airport specifically check in this."
Pros: "Comfortable seat, friendly crew. Crew were conscious of recycling which I like a lot as there is so much waste on flight. Anything we can do to reduce waste is very welcome."
Cons: "Food wasn't very appetizing, pasta didn't have much flavor and I don't eat red meat so the other choice wasn't an option for me."
Cons: "We were changed from KLM to Airiltalia without any information sent so only because I tried to check in did I find out the flight on KLM was cancelled and we were changed to Airitalia. The Airitalia flight was very mediocre."
Cons: "Need more leg room!!! Larger meals needed."
Pros: "On time and friendly crew"
Cons: "Boarding needs improvement"
Pros: "great crew and comfortable flight."
Cons: "sceens in the plane to show map and direction of travel"
Cons: "The overall travel was good, no wifi and the entertainment system had a faulty headphone connection, and no place to charge devices other than through a USB port"
Cons: "At the check in they made me pay 50€ for my luggage. This is really upsetting because from Houston to Venice they didn't make me pay. Either the website wasn't transparent or the lady at the desk made a mistake. Very upsetting, one luggage should be included."
Pros: "Friendly and efficient crew. I travel KLM often and always enjoy the flights."
Cons: "There were several flight delays and gates were changes a few times."
Pros: "Gaps between seats are very narrow."
Cons: "when serving drinks, cabin crew limited to serve liquor only once and it was poor service."
Cons: "Trouble checking in regarding a visa issue?.. no other trouble at the other airports.."
Pros: "Short flight and being able to escape from drunk belligerent Passenger on previous flight"
Pros: "Crew was excellent -kind nice and very attentive"
Cons: "Entertainment went out mid flight. Had to be reset off 30 mins but cam back up"
Cons: "Nothing special"
Pros: "Good flight, very attentive crew."
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: "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."
Pros: "Interior of the plane was clean. Smooth landing."
Cons: "Pilot did not avoid turbulence"
Cons: "Didn’t happen."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled."
Pros: "Able to fly direct to ansterdam"
Cons: "Have to lay over on the way back. More expensive than other airlines."
Pros: "Sound was broken on my TV set!"
Cons: "Called stewardess twice to assist. No response!"
Pros: "expedited check in with nice staff. Security staff were pleasant, and the entire check in process for everything was easy"
Cons: "there was no lounge close to our departure gate"
Pros: "Really friendly staff. Great service"
Pros: "My bagage broke"
Cons: "I paid extra fee for extra bagage which was tv and i paid insurance my tv broke and no one responces for it"
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."
Pros: "quick and relaxed"
Cons: "Flight way delayed 3 hours. Staff gave no information and wouldn't help rebook us onto other flights. They gave us food vouchers 2 minutes before we finally boarded, so we couldn't use them. The food on the plane had spoiled so we were all starving on the flight, and we all missed our connections. Horrible experience and wouldn't fly with KLM again."
Pros: "The sandwiches were simple yet just the right touch, on all four flights."
Pros: "The included snacks and the seats."
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant"
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to fog, but the staff was amazingly helpful to make sure everyone got to their destination."
Pros: "No chargers or tv on planes"
Cons: "At Amsterdam we were told that our checkin luggage wouldn't be at Sydney!! Some low fat meals were terrible!"
Cons: "KLM had bumped us to a later flight for no reason and again we had to call with a long wait to get our original connection restored, However, we did not get boarding passes during checking in Europe and thus had to go outside security in Detroit to the main check-in gate and wait 30 minutes to get the error resolved. Then it was back thorough security and a rush to the gate to get there in time to board. Lost our original seat assignment and wound up in the last row at the tail of the plane. Extremely poor coordination between KLM and Delta who operated the flight."
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: "Loads of leg room"
Cons: "Loved everything"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, but they only had limited resources to work with."
Cons: "Worst aircraft I have been on in years. No wifi or entertainment, no power outlets, only bad wine/beer for a 3+ hour flight is mediocre at best..."
Cons: "Fewer entertainment options than the delta flight. I got excited with that first flight."
Pros: "Much more civilised for the same cost (or less) as the budget carriers. Proper food and drinks included as is the norm with international flights even though it's a very short haul."
Cons: "The stinky guy behind me, but that's not the airline's fault."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable Had a row to myself Flight was good even though there was a bit of turbulence it was smooth"
Cons: "I missed the food and drink from London to Manchester cos I fell asleep Found a bag of crisps on the chair next to me but no bottle of water"
Pros: "Welcoming, hard-working crew who served a 3-course cold meal in Business Class in what was just a 30-minute flight. We landed at least 10 minutes ahead of schedule."
Pros: "It was absolutely on time. Great!"
Cons: "The meal is always too spicy and for more south Asian style. I prefer more European meal."
Cons: "They made me checkin a small bag"
Pros: "We got to London on time"
Cons: "Is an old plane with a old hard product needs to be retired or retrofitted"
Cons: "Plane was late taking off, Crew did not provide water when requested. They were busy with beverages that they could sell at a cost."
Pros: "The Check in LADY was amazing"
Cons: "On the flight they wouldn't offer me alcohol, even though the lady next to me had a mimosa?"
Pros: "Lounges are good"
Cons: "We sure could do better refraining from serving food that has been opened, tasted, and rejected by another customer. Seat 34 A and B rejected their special ordered food for the wrong item. I watched them taste. Crew, one named Paul, took it back, simply put the foil back, and served to others."
Pros: "Very enthusiastic and pleasant crew who worked hard to provide a meal and drinks to all Business Class passengers on this short 33-minute flight."
Cons: "The food was fantastic also the crew."
Cons: "More legroom."
Cons: "Unnecessary delay"
Pros: "Crew were good."
Cons: "Air traffic controllers at Gatwick were pathetic. Had to wait an hour on the runway in Innsbruck because staff was too low."
Pros: "Crew professional and courteous. Smart looking cabin"
Cons: "Boarding process slow and boarding groups in illogical order."
Pros: "Quick check in online, efficient auto bag check with helpful staff available, Quick efficient boarding, quiet flight less than half full."
Cons: "Being bumped to an earlier flight (7:15 from 11:20), not sure that was BA or the booking agent, but caused alteration of plans and hotel being booked."
Pros: "New plane and boarding was a breeze."
Cons: "Had to pay for any food and drinks. No entertainment but very short flight."
Pros: "Comfortable on plane. Pleasnt crew"
Cons: "Boarding could be bettet done.. .miss the free drink"
Pros: "Nothing! Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "My flight Paris/London/Manchester?Chicago was the mos impleasant experience I ever had. On July the flight was schedule for 9...pm then delayed for two hours because of a fire, other passengers said, in London. At around 11pm, we were asked to line up for boarding. We stayed on line for an hour and fnally to be told the flight was cancelled. We were treated less than animals by British Airway. No ACCOMODATION!!!!!!!! No ACCOMODATION!!!!!!! We slept on benches at the airport. To be fair to you, I will not recommend British Airway to anyone."
Pros: "Nothing g"
Cons: "Business class was same as economy and I paid a lot more. Ordered special meal but didn't get either"
Pros: "Almost nothing on this flight."
Cons: "Boarded on time then 40 minute delay before take off. After we landed the plane came to a sudden stop and the Captain told us the lights to guide us to the appropriate place were not working this was a long delay. When we got to the disembarking area we had another long wait and the reason was due to the bridge not working,eventually we went out the back of the plane. The most unbelievable problem was the announcement just before take off that both rear toilets were out of action,since the flight was late this was an issue and I do not believe that both toilets could be broken more likely that there was no person available to clean them."
Pros: "Food and service great"
Pros: "Had to deboard onto the tarmac via a set of stairs as the connecting ramp was not working. A little difficult for me due to mobility issues. However, the crew voluntarily saw me struggling and took down my suitcase, very nice!"
Cons: "They didn't give a direct flight but gave to Mumbai and then from Mumbai to Hyderabad. Had to collect my luggage and recheckin those."
Pros: "The fact that the flight was short and not full. Crew were pleasant and business like"
Cons: "There was nothing to not like"
Pros: "Flight to London was cancelled so I missed the flight and ba wouldn’t help me figure out what to do!"
Cons: "My main issue is that I wasn't adequately informed that it was a codeshare and that I could choose my seats ahead of time"
Pros: "It wasn’t unpleasant"
Cons: "M&S should be ashamed to put their name to this dreadful selection of food. EasyJet has a more varied selection for gluten intolerance. The boarding experience could not be more anachronistic - every gem and precious metal under the sun is given priority (emerald card??) and it is just about left unsaid that the final people allowed to board are the Plebs. What a dispiriting experience and one I now have to repeat after the demise of Monarch, who were so much better."
Pros: "The crews don't stop giving away foods/drinks! They kept asking the passengers if we need aanything."
Cons: "Not sure, but I felt the spca is a bit smaller than other flights."
Pros: "Quick boarding!"
Cons: "Snack trolley didn't reach the back seats due to the shortness of the flight. The only entertainment was an in flight magazine!"
Pros: "Reasonable comfort."
Cons: "Very slow baggage pickup at the airport."
Cons: "Missed connection due to delays on previous flight"
Pros: "Quick flight. Was late leaving but made up time in the air."
Cons: "Not enough time to serve folks while in flight. Consider taking orders in the Departure Lounge before boarding flight."
Pros: "Good cabin crew and boarded direct from terminal via airbridge. Also good food in Club Europe for such a short flight."
Cons: "Slight 15 minute delay and miserly legroom in Club Europe - densification gone too far."
Cons: "cramped and very warm"
Pros: "I thought British Airways was a better airline. I hope they do better job to when I return back to my home next mointh!"
Pros: "Capt informative pertaining to delay"
Cons: "Had to pay for drinks and food"
Pros: "What you expect on commuter hop, no problems."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Going through immigration in Dublin and the flight over behind well managed"
Cons: "Security in Dublin is a bit disorgation going from the U.K. Into the US terminal. I lost my global entry card in the process and not much one could do with that process"
Pros: "Got me there"
Pros: "BA couldn't get our boarding passes to work no matter how many times they printed out new ones and we had to land into proper arrivals (though we were in transit in Heathrow) and tell five different groups of staff what was going on, even though it wasn't our problem but their computer glitch. One man at security was even rude to me, telling me not to just stand there. ( I had been told to stand there whilst they went and tried to remedy for the umpteenth time). When I showed him my disabled badge and said I would personally prefer NOT to be left standing for hours, he said 'so?'. It was a nightmare. It took hours and still wasn't sorted and in the end the immigration officers had to be called to the boarding area to allow us on the flight with non functioning boarding cards. It wasn't even our fault. REally upset about it."
Pros: "The staff are friendly and cheerful. No food or entertainment for the short donestic flight (as would be expected anywhere for a 50 min flight)"
Cons: "Boarding badly organised ... signs telling you where to queue are double sided and depending which side you see first direct you into the wrong lane... Left a bit late but arrived pretty much on time. Baggage didn't arrive after a 2 hour transfer and this is the third time in four times over the past few years. I strongly do not recommend BA as a domestic UK connection after an international arrival."
Cons: "We were asked to check in our luggage as there was not sufficient space in the cabin which obviously delayed our plans of getting a train to other location from the airport after lading as we had to collect the bags etc"
Pros: "I liked really everything about this trip, especially the fact I was given the wheel chair assistance from the moment of my arrival at Heathrow Airport as I was promised. Thank you, this time you did a good job. Gloria Tanton"
Cons: "I did not like the lack or wheel chair assistance I was given on my trip to London, then Bologna on December 28/16. I had to wait a long time, about one hour before I got some assistance to my flight to Bologna, unfortunately no organization on the part of British Airways. Gloria Tanton"
Pros: "Comfortable night, pleasant crew. The food was pretty good, and the flight attendants were attentive. I didn't have to ask for refills on drinks, etc. They also seem to get along well with each other, which makes for more relaxing trip."
Pros: "The food was good plus drinks"
Cons: "There was no wifi in an 11h flight"
Cons: "The drop down food trays were dirty and we had to ask an assistant to clean them. The light refreshments were served late - we were landing just as they were handing out the drinks."
Pros: "Friendly efficient service"
Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "not a lot of leg room. Took a while to board."
Cons: "It was extremely hot on the plane. for the first 30 minutes there was no ac available and there was little to no help from the staff. I asked for water to cool myself down and ov waited about ten minutes to get it after hitting my help button multiple times. The flight attendants may have been overwhelmed with the requests as there were many just like me who struggled so they came off very rude. The plane was also not updated at all - not personal entertainment and once again, no ac/air for people to control."
