Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "They have a terrible communication problem, they never communicated why the flight was late, they never communicated what they were doing or what was happening. Bad customer service. Bad communication with the client. They told us when I asked several times that we would not lose our connection and that everything was fine and that was not the case. We lost the connection. No one told us anything. Another problem was that the girl in the boarding process removed the suitcases tickets from the boarding pass and did not want to return them, and held it without any cause. Without that tickets we can not claim the bags. The flight staff went looking for us. Pretty sad and disappointed by their service. I understand that they were causes outside the airline but must communicate to the client. They cannot remain silent and say nothing."
Cons: "Comfort plus seats need some work. Very thin padding on a hard seat. The leg rest needs to come up higher so you don’t slide down while semi reclined. Nice compromise between business and coach though."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and extremely helpful!"
Cons: "The food could have been better"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful. We were in business class which was modest but comfortable."

Cons: "Placed in last row w/ non-reclining seats, even though bought tix 7 months early. We travel w/ only carry-on bags. AF allows 35 kg each but only 12 kg in cabin. I asked, online, twice, if we could have a couple of extra kg for hand pieces. Rec’d only auto. luggage policy. Forced to check both bags."

We tried upgrading to business but Delta said we had to contact Air France in Detroit. When thrre, the gentleman on ground crew was actually rude when I asked about it. He could have just politely told me there was nothing available. Not looking forward to my return flight"
Cons: "Leg space."
Pros: "Food has improved a lot on business class. Meals are more creative."
Cons: "Water bottles not given out unless ou ask for it. Crew needs to better trained with how to handle business class..."
Cons: "I did not like that i was in the bulkhead and there was not sufficient overhead storage for us. The bin was only big enough for 1 backpack. 2 of the 3 of us in that row had to go 2 rows back to store our luggage. This is very inconvenient when deboarding because I have to wait for many others to pass before I get a chance to walk towards the back of the plane to get my luggage."
Pros: "Comfortable, hospitality and wonderful service"
Pros: "nice drink selection on board flights"
Cons: "My pregnant wife was downgraded from business to economy 20 minutes before departure because the airline made a mistake with the reservation for our puppy traveling in the cabin with us. If this were not enough, the airline also lost one of our bags so this week we have to file for compensation for both begin downgraded and for the contents of our 30 kilo bag which never made it to Ho Chi Minh. Air France was a complete and total disaster and I would strongly recommend all friends and colleagues to find alternative airlines for travel"

Cons: "Very cramped. Poor leg room also with.metal bars under seats that further. Limited foot room. Terrible options in movies."
Pros: "This is what happens when you get roped in by a low price."
Cons: "Disorganization which led to not being able to pre-purchase baggage. Then bad info at airport which led to multiple trips through security trying to make weight on a bag that should have been checked but was told didn't need to. Ended up missing flight, having to rebook at full fare and no one knows where the bag that was checked is. STAY AWAY!"
Pros: "Good service at gate and on board"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Window pane was broken on my side and I couldn't shut it down. As it was a day flight the sun heated my skin badly"
Pros: "The crew was good and very good pilot's"
Cons: "No leg room between seats"
Pros: "Got pillow, blanket, headphone and eye cover"
Cons: "Older plane Very small tv screen Didn't get the bread roll with my dinner. Asked for it but she didn't bring it to me. No usb plug to charge"
Pros: "Seat comfort in business class Professional and friendly crew"
Cons: "Food not tasty Limited entertainment even in business class (such small and old screen style) Newspapers available to be much more diversified When is the WiFi going to be available?"
Pros: "The price 50€ cheaper than the other operators. Quick flight. Kind crew."
Cons: "Lack organisation for checking. No difference if you have done the checking online. No breakfast on a 7am flight though included in the price."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
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: "Late, not enough legroom, smell from the toilet. Tiny TV screen, malfunctioning electronics, poorly maintained seats. Friendly crew! They looked tired, but they were still smiling while trying to keep passengers happy."
Cons: "The delay in the flight without even informing us of the reasons. Changing the boarding gates twice, and no options in the meal."
Pros: "Service was much better than on the flight from MIA to CDG 3 weeks before - that was very poor. Entertainment was excellent - great selection of movies. Premium Economy was definitely worth the upgrade cost."
Cons: "Boarding was a complete debacle - no control over who went where. Sky Priority line was full of 50 people who weren't Sky Priority, and there was only one person checking passports. The two people at the desk didn't care when I noted this. We were called to the desk in advance of boarding to check passport information. When we got to the check in line, we were taken aside for more passport checking, even though we are US citizens with Trusted Traveler status in the GOES program. We were one of the first people at the departure lounge, and one of the the last to board."
Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "I feel comfortable flying when I can see out the window so don't force me to close my window shade.The flight attendants kept forcing me to close my shade. Also new planes would be nice. Sick of flying on outdated technology."
Pros: "Efficient check-in."
Cons: "It was raining in Prague so I can understand that luggage is going to get wet. But when we opened our luggage at least half of our clothes were wet. It would seem that the luggage sat out for quite a while prior to departure for that much soaking of clothes. Fortunately we are staying in Paris for a few days and can get our clothes dried out."
Pros: "Wheel chair service at LAX is run by the airport. Their priority is to get you to your flight, not to a VIP room regardless of how early you check in."
Pros: "I had a choice of movies, games and music that was very appealing. My concerns about not receiving the correct meal was handled professionally and promptly during the flight. I was surprised they couldn't discover I only ordered it for the second leg of my flight."
Cons: "Being placed into a window seat at 6' 5". Although I opted for general seating rather than paying for a extra leg room which is out of my budget. Not getting an aisle seat was disturbing at my height. Then there was the guy in front of me not willing to forego putting his seat back on my knees for over half the flight. It would be nice if the seat assignments for general boarding considered the height of the person being assigned."
Pros: "The food, the facilities, the seat, everything."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "One of the engine was smoking just as we took off. This should have been checked beforehand that it was working correctly. The pilot missed the first landing, was going too fast and had to turn around. We circled the London eye 3 times. When we were actually landing it was extremely bumpy and on the way down the plane was tilting back and forth a lot. They were going too fast when we landed as well, I have never been in a plane that has landed so poorly, and I have travelled a lot and used many different airlines. It was worse than any budget airline I've been on. As we were driving back to the terminal, the pilot stopped short for some reason. Things were not explained clearly. I will not be flying with airfrance again and will be sure to spread the word of this awful experience."
Pros: "The aircrew are very friendly. The staff at CDG were very helpfull with our connecting flight."
Cons: "The seats are very cramped for tall people, especially when the passenger in front of you reclines their seat."
Pros: "The attentiveness of the crew and the online check in."
Cons: "Missed the connecting flight and the luggage was on transferred on our next conncection :("
Cons: "The seat were not adjustable and the snake were poor and no entertainment on board ... poor boarding with buses and arrived with buses"
Cons: "Missing a bag , longer wait time at Abu Dhabi"
Cons: "The vegetarian meal selected came in as vegan meal. This happened for both onward and return journey. The regular meal provided to passengers were better than the vegetarian meal selected"
Pros: "Flight was ok"
Cons: "Food, bus journey to the plane"
Cons: "Flight was hot ac not working enough food was horrible."
Pros: "Service Cleanliness Food"
Cons: "Toilet needed lotion moisturizers"
Pros: "A380 is a great plane to fly in, very roomy. Entertainment was good but could be improved by allowing access while plane is still on the ground. This is significant on these long haul flights as boarding commences about an hour before departure."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing. The gate showed as "open" sometime before boarding actually commenced which was confusing. The seats have a very strange headrest thing you can't move which I found a bit annoying. Otherwise seat was good."
Cons: "The employees in the plane and at the counter they are not helpful"
Pros: "The flight attendants."
Cons: "There was a medical emergency on board, so bathrooms did not get the necessary attention. Had to ask for toilet paper for two different bathrooms. Transferring to this flight as a NIGHTMARE. The boarding gate was a long way from the arrival gate. Went through an endless maze. Went through two security check points. At both check points I was sent for pat down. At the first there were five other women who were waiting for pat down. All white women. Discrimination???? At the second security, I had not even passed through the detector and the officer was waving me to get a pat down. At that point I started laughing. Next automated preclearance for immigration, then had to wait in line to talk to immigration officer. It is a miracle that I made it to the flight on time. Passport and boarding pass checked minimum of 6 times in this process. On arrival in Los Angeles, there was a bus ride to the terminal for luggage pick up. My husband was at the terminal I normally come to, I had no way to contact him (Indian sim), no change for pay phone. A fellow passenger was merciful and let me use her phone send husband messages and eventually we met up. I would not use Eithad for India to USA for this reason only. The security and immigration preclearance sucks."
Pros: "Did not submit my meal choice in time but got the meal of my choice anyway."
Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "So i was with ticketing requesting for seating, and she said run run your flight is leaving , i did not get proper seat and i ran to find out it was NYC flight and not DC. I asked more than one Eithihqd personeel and they did not know the difference bewtween Nyac flight and DC flight . Then came back to request for seating and they again made believe my security will be declines if i waste timein requesting seating. Got a flight between 2 males for a 15 hour flight and a run across the airport with a heart problem . I will never fly Eithihqd and also will not recommend to anyone"
Pros: "Nothing much really!"
Cons: "No entertainment options. Late departure & when we arrived early the local ground services company did not expect us & we were delayed at the gate for 30 minutes before disembarking!"
Cons: "I wanted to cancel this flight and I am not able to connect to the right department in just fly, this is the most annoying experience I have had. If left unresolved I might not use kayak.com ever again"
Pros: "I couldn't catch this flight because the previous connecting flight was canceled."
Cons: "They moved my flight to later time on both ways."
Pros: "Nice crew. I'm a frequent flyer and my journey from Abu Dhabi to Cairo, the crew was very nice . (a preference for my first trip of the day though ;)) Everything was very good, except for the screen: on both planes I used this day, it didn't work but it was exceptional in experience. Free champagne! :p"
Cons: "Everything was very good except for the screen: On both planes that I used this day, it didn't work but it was exceptional in experience. The flight from Abu Dhabi to Cairo, no choice of food due to limited and badly anticipated quantities."
Cons: "The seats never recline. All the 4 leg seats had reclining ossue"
Pros: "They had to delay the flight for those who were arriving from Durban because of the delayed flight."
Cons: "Food choices were limited"
Pros: "Easy connections ,good flight ,food"
Cons: "Check in at JFK took ages as the ground staff just didn’t bother about balancing queues versus available agents. One quueue moves fast and the other got stick . Some of the agents were novices After boarding some passengers couldn’t find place for their carry on a. They were rudley informed that they are carrying large carry ones and were threatened with deboatdong if they weren’t fast in finding alternate places for their bags"
Pros: "I was very pleased with this airline. Will try to fly with Etihad again if the opportunity presents itself"
Pros: "Good airline and I like the fact that kids and seniors are boarded first regardless of seating."
Cons: "Food was horrible and most of the time there wasnt an option between veg and non veg even when the flight was mostly empty. Taste was really bad."
Pros: "Cleanliness of the bathroom"
Cons: "Breakfast was not good enough"
Cons: "Though happy there was kids meal provided seeing pasta in all 3 meals not very appetizing. Sweet side dish were mediocre at best. There were no snack available or provided for kids except the meal box. When requested milk for my kid some milk from flask was given which I was not comfortable giving to my son.. there were other issues but my sons comfort was the most Concerning"
Pros: "Seat space"
Pros: "nothing to like about. sorry i wont be taking etihad airways."
Cons: "poorest customer service. my family members, friends and myself wont be taking etihad flight."
Pros: "In time"
Cons: "Crew not helpful . Same with food not enough ):"
Pros: "Every thing is perfect"
Cons: "Everything. They are excrllent."

Cons: "Nothing honestly."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Plane late"
Cons: "Veg meals ran out very fast, not enough options for all the passengers."
Cons: "Faulty Seats. Had to change seats thrice. luckily, the flight was not that full. Seats were not reclining at all."
Cons: "the food is bad and i was ask for $75 to change seat at DFW going to Abu Dhabi"
Pros: "Flight service + great deal"
Cons: "We were asked to stand for boarding. And instead of having us board they boarded first class and handicapped people. I understand these people have the right to board first. However, if you know that you have more than 20 handicapped to board first do not have an entire zone of people stand for 40 minutes"
Pros: "Service was efficient though the there were not that many movies available & after I realized that my television screen would not stay up because I was sitting in front of the exit door, I tried listening to the music but my head set was broken too! The stewards were trying to finish picking up the snack & clean up so there was less than an hour left I decided not to bother them further."
Cons: "As far as the snack that was served,it was a dry roll with little bit of cheese in it . My daughter & I both did not take an other bite and put the rest of it back in the bag!"
Pros: "Food and entertainment was very good"
Cons: "Crew was not that much friendly, 1 or 2 people were excellent. I didn't understand what makes them so serious, not polite and many. It might be reason if they are smile or polite passengers might ask more questions or more extra drinks or food. I don't think that will be case, it will be very long journey many people has remember the flight journey and need to travel back again in same flight."
Pros: "Goo entertainment options"
Cons: "entertainment options shut down too early and when plane is on the ground"
Cons: "Food not good. Just one type of food"
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Seats are very narrow and uncomfortable. The seat cushion doesn't provide much 'cushion'. Some other competitor airlines have much better seats."
Pros: "It was a good experience with Etihad airlines, comfortable and ambience."
Cons: "Food provided is not at all good. Very very poor."
Cons: "my suitcase plastic zipper was opened by someone in the ground staff at IGI Delhi and a few items were stolen. something needs to be done about this because I am sure other passengers are losing a lot more"
Pros: "Nothing to like."
Cons: "The check-in cashier was very rude. maybe she should retake the course in hospitality. Again, it was operates by AA so what should I expect?"
Pros: "Flight was roughly on time. Had purchased extra leg room. Was comfortable"
Cons: "Staff was not interested in providing service. Their attitude was more like "I just do my job". Food was appalling and wines too. Entertainment only had stupid movies"
Pros: "The pillow that cradles your head and neck! I've flown with many international airlines over 20+ years and Etihad is now my number one choice. It seems to really think about passengers' comfort. I also enjoyed watching documentaries on fashion designer Michael Kors and singer David Bowie."
Cons: "Flight attendants were polite but one told me, "You should put the tray up." I suppose she was thinking in French, where people say "il faut faire…" To an English speaker "you should" doesn't sound soft. I think the flight attendant wasn't aware of the nuance in English. Everything else about her was courteous, and everything else on the flight went smoothly. I would recommend Etihad to anyone."
Pros: "The only positive was that it followed the time and the crew was good."
Cons: "I paid 22 bucks for wifi services and it never worked one bit. The crew bluntly told me that they can't do much about it. I would definitely travel via a different airline primarily due to the fact that the wifi wasnt working and the leg space is terrible for an 18 hour flight."
Pros: "First time flyer with them and can't say enough hood things about it. Wonderful airlines."
Pros: "Staff was fantastic, bathrooms kept very clean & food was good."
Cons: "Space for leg room in economy seats. Most international flights for economy have more room."
Pros: "The flight was relatively on time and the crew was nice"
Cons: "The food was not the British Airways high quality"
Pros: "Flights were on time. Good food portion for longer flights. Good pilots and cabin crew."
Pros: "Separate lines for boarding"
Cons: "No transfer or ticket agents to be found to change/upgrade flight."
Pros: "We flew 1st class. The crew going over was AMAZING!!!!"
Cons: "LHR-ATL first class was awful. My spouse lost her seat to an aircrew member. (I'm very sick and we chose being across from each other for a reason). Boarding on both ends was horribly done. Last minute gate assignments, no crew, delay, boarded after coach. Hard bed, no service, crying baby"
Pros: "Friendly competent staff"
Cons: "Nothing in particular"
Pros: "Good food."
Cons: "They are very slow in checking people in"
Cons: "It was good"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Cleanliness Pockets in seat all in disarray with crumpled dirty pamphlets and magazines. Felt unsanitary"
Pros: "The airport is nice"
Cons: "But they didn’t let me in because I didn’t show up for the first flight"
Pros: "Fantastic crew and food reasonable for plane food. Air blowers didn't work. But all in all I had a comfortable flight. Don't like layout of Heathrow - everyone super nice but bus rides between terminals cost me 30-40 minutes having to go through security again. I understand the need but would be nice if flights came and left from same terminals where possible."
Cons: "The entertainment screen stopped working mid way through the 9+ hour flight. Plane was older. The head rests were weird - they weren't flexible so hard to hold in place."
Pros: "Cabin crew."
Cons: "Food service painfully slow."
Cons: "No WiFi"
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "Because the flight was an hour late we missed our connection from London to Chicago. Was a day late getting home!"

Cons: "as always, rather crowded, seats rather tight,"
Pros: "747s are good stable planes in flight"
Cons: "The greatest problem was dealing with the usual chaos and discomfort of traveling through Heathrow airport. Primitive and time-consuming transportation system between terminals- Had to ride overcrowded buses packed with so many people that your body was pressed against your neighbor. Inadequate number of restrooms and poor signage to find them. Bad selection of restaurants. Then at the terminal, boarding time listed as 10:40, but they did not even announce the boarding gate until 10:40. Then a 10 minute ride on another overcrowded bus to the plane which you had to board by a staircase (and a staircase to the door on a 747 is no small thing!) Although flight was smooth in the air, the pilot landed so "hard" I thought the landing gear must have been damaged!"
Pros: "I was a good trip, except for one thing."
Cons: "I was very upset when travelling from Mumbai to London, Heathrow, because the crew in Mumbai did not send my baggage directly to Toronto and I had to go through the whole process of checking in Montreal to travel to Toronto, which was my last destination."
Cons: "There was a problem in the pilot flying from London to Riyadh and did not go to us tomorrow, I do not know is the reason you (KAYAK) or they are this problem is very large and I am not satisfied with this service"
Cons: "Quality of food"
Cons: "Arrived a day late and fly on an old plane"
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: "smooth flight"
Cons: "no dairy free food options"
Pros: "There was no event happening. This was good :-)"
Cons: "No sodas, no water, no food on this flight. I'm still pissed off."
Pros: "Everything was okay! The plane was kind of empty and that why the service was excellent, the crew very friendly."
Pros: "Staff, timeliness and overall flight experience was above average."
Cons: "The entertainment system can be improved."
Pros: "Taking off, flight, & landing were ok."
Cons: "Delayed flight Weight limit of 23kgs. made us carry too much carry-on luggage. Entertainment was really poor compared with Emirates. The flight attendant with the long hair serving Economy Class was not friendly. In fact, He was almost shouting at the passengers especially two ladies wearing hijab. With all honest, BA is not the same airline that it used to be."
Pros: "Quiet, adequate legroom, comfortable climate and seat."
Cons: "Food and drinks only for purchase. Would have been nice to at least have been offered a glass of water."
Pros: "The crew was very professional and flight was uneventful after short delay due to Heathrow ground support equipment issues."
Cons: "For a B747 we expected more comfortable and roomier seating"
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants, comfy seats"
Cons: "No beverages service. They went right by us."
Pros: "Liked club class seats!"
Cons: "If BA wants to do business in USA, perhaps they might consider that many international travelers use Global Entry and TSA precheck services. It's not nice showing up and taking your shoes off and fumbling through your carry on to consolidate liquids without being forewarned!"
Cons: "Lost luggage"
Cons: "Charging for coffee and tea? Tacky."
Pros: "Excellent Airline....."
Cons: "No Wifi"
Pros: "the plane was spceous in the economy section. comparatively new aircraft and well maintained, the cabin crew were very co-operative, graceous and well behaved. overall good experience."
Cons: "the starting of serving non-veg food took very long time. british airways should focuss attention to this."
Pros: "The food and the boarding crw comfortable"
Pros: "I was exhausted and so was my flight buddy. The staff was helpful and quietc and got us on board and to our destination without us having to think which was great."
Pros: "Flight left and arrived ontime and early both departure and arrival."
Cons: "Seats are a bit uncomfortable in economy,"
Pros: "Nice new airplane with good seat design and quiet and confortable in flight. AA crew was nice and entertainment was OK."
Cons: "Chaotic and ilogical boarding"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. The food was below average even for airline food. One of the flight attendants was rude to one of the passengers even though the passenger was not doing anything out of normal."
Pros: "On a two hour flight, they provide a small sandwich and scrumptious carmel muffin. Overall, it was a pretty good flight."
Cons: "Took them a while to start boarding."
Cons: "Very slow operations at the Heathrow airport."
Pros: "Food was great and the crew was friendly. Overall enjoyed the flight."
Cons: "The check in took way too long. Sat there for an hour to check in my luggage. I thought i might miss my flight but i was two minutes before takeoff."
Pros: "Flight to Riyadh was relatively empty so we could stretch out."
Cons: "Disliked the fact that the crew would bring food out and 5 mins later came back and picked up the tray. They were rude enough to pick up my tray while I was still eating. Will try to avoid BA in future."
Pros: "I especially liked our seats (we were in the exit row and had plenty of leg room); the crew, and the food."
Cons: "What we didn't like couldn't be helped: there were crying babies and a snorting gentleman."
Cons: "Flight was canceled."
Pros: "They were nice enough to let me board early on the account of me being pregnant. Checkin was horrendous with super long lines. Again got away because of pregnancy."
Cons: "Check in process could have been made better. Allow more online. Don't always prioritize last minute delayed guys over people who came on time or early for their flight. That's not fair."
