Pros: "As usual, punctual flight with friendly crew."
Cons: "Pity the wifi in international flights isn't complementary (or at least a basic connection like on domestic flights)."

Cons: "Boarding can get crowded so don't be in a rush"

Cons: "Good overall"

Pros: "The flight itself was good! The one from London to Delhi was better than from JFK to London"

Pros: "Quality of service was good in the plane"
Cons: "Not many good recent movies / shows on in flight entertainment. Food was okay. But, the quantity was too little. It took a really long time for a second boarding pass check at London airport. Other airlines don't usually ask for a second check in"

Pros: "Quite a big choice of movies and TV shows to watch, more than enough for an eight hour flight. Normal headphone plugs so you can use your own."
Cons: "I booked together with my wife, yet we were allocated seats apart and were not able to be reassigned together. The leg room was so tight that I could not pick up things off the floor without putting my head in the next persons lap. Though the cabin crew were smiley and friendly, it was hard to get their attention when needed. The PA system is much louder than the entertainment, so announcements were ear bursting. The dinner selections ran out early, so a good proportion did not get their choice."

Cons: "Just a little bit more leg room."

Pros: "Excellent entertainment options, out stewardess was fantastic."
Cons: "Cramped seats."

Cons: "Vera the entertainment screen was very good but there were no newly released movies, everything seemed to be a couple of months old... the leather headrest was comfortable but kept slipping down to behind my neck, would be nice if it was lockable in position.."

Pros: "100% best flight ever"

Pros: "Genuinely pleasant cabin crew, good service, good food."
Cons: "Virgin Upper Class seats are cramped, with very limited stowage space. Turning the seat into a lay flat bed (and returning it seat at the end of the flight) takes some effort--not the simplest of processes. I'm not tall, but my feet protruded into the aisle so I was being disturbed whilst sleeping. Seat is also quite narrow--feels quite claustrophobic when sleeping."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Crew had poor communication, didn't seem friendly or helpful, no food given for free and no warnings fhat this was the case. Flight was delayed at takeoff And they did not accurately tell us how long the delay was"

Pros: "The crew,food and entertainment the food has improved, the ground and flight staffs was very pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "We were flying to Miami, then into a cruise,weighs restrictions,we were find a100 dollars for a couple more kg, we were on holiday for nearly three weeks"

Cons: "They tried checking my carryon luggage because they said it was overweight and it would be $130. This is absurd, especially since it isn't going to change in weight by getting checked. I refused to pay this amount. The flight was also 3 hours delayed, almost missed my connection back to the states from SYD. Other international flights offer free meal service, you were lucky if you got water on this flight and had to pay for any snacks."

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Was denied the seat with extra legroom that my husband had paid for. One of my suitcases (zipper) opened on the conveyor belt, maybe it was tossed?"

Pros: "The crew left my breakfast in the sear next to me because I was asleep (unfortunately i didn't notice till I started to disembark...)"
Cons: "I couldn't get comfortable enough to sleep very well, even though I was in a window seat (which I can normally lean on)."

Cons: "Never seen an international flight charges checked in luggage $130 US dollars a piece"

Pros: "Non stop"
Cons: "Food was not good, they served snacks and did not serve drinks with snacks. Seats were tight"

Pros: "Getting off the stinky airplane...peeyoo!"
Cons: "The three hour delay in departure."

Cons: "My video monitor didn't work so I couldn't watch movies, asked the crew twice to help and they never did. Then to top off a terrible 10 hour flight with no entertainment, my bag never made it. Worst experience ever"

Cons: "the seats are not as comfortable as those on new planes"

Pros: "Make sure you bring food with you because they will starve you. I also asked for band-aide 2x but it never came. Service is very poor."
Cons: "Service is very poor, ground and air crew are not friendly, can even be driscriminating. There's scarcity of food in this flight. They need to give snacks more often than one in a 13hr flight."

"On time, cordial service,"

"Simple and easy"

"Had a crying baby the whole flight. When we arrived at the gate we had to wait for the gangway."

"Don’t give me a chair that can’t lean back. I got one in both legs of my flight. And I know I did not select those seats."

Cons: "Headphone availability"

Pros: "Boarded plane back to front once Priority members boarded. Overall staff and Pilots were great. A quick flight of 75 minutes. Tea, coffee or water provided along with a small snack. Smooth flight and only minor delays which were handled in a timely manner."

Cons: "Enforcing covid restrictions"

Pros: "Short flight good crew"
Cons: "Better seats and comfort. Better plane and at least a much more cleaner plane. These air planes are showing their age and need a refresh of the cabin."

Pros: "Middle seats not booked. Cabin very clean, bathrooms kept tidy throughout trip. Very friendly crew. Appreciated cold drinks and selection of snacks,"

Cons: "More leg space"

Cons: "Customer service, the app defies the laws of physics, it blows and sucks at the same time, and email says expect a reply in 3 weeks. United thanks you Delta, they just gained 2 new customers!"

Cons: "The one member on the crew team was rude and harsh. Very poor customer service skills."

Pros: "Crew did an outstanding job"

Pros: "I was moved up to comfort instead of main cabin."

Pros: "Crew was wonderful"

Cons: "Explain flight situations better.."

Pros: "Crew is amazing!"
Cons: "The Plane!"

Cons: "Significant delay of departure."

Pros: "Very professional."

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."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Flight was on time and arrived a little early."
Cons: "I was seated next to a very large man (6’5” he said) and had no room in my seat. Thankfully the seats in front of us were empty and the flight attendant moved him."

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."

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."

Cons: "The seating was very close. Not enough room to sleep comfortably."

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: "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."

Pros: "food, entertainment and most of the crew was great"
Cons: "Early boarding and then got yelled at for showing up 3min after official boarding time on ticket. no air vents for each seat. massive heat in airplane while waiting for taxiing"

Cons: "Due to repair aircraft equipmen, almost 1h delay my flight."

Pros: "Service is outstanding in economy and puts US airlines to shame. Lufthansa is the best way to fly to Europe."

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."

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."

Pros: "All was very proffessional"

Pros: "Again, excellent customer service. Can't say enough."

Pros: "The live streaming of the NBA finals game on the flight was excellent."
Cons: "The check in process was incredibly inefficient. I have never had to wait so long to check in my bags. The attendants were chatting and laughing while not helping customers and customers were unfairly taken from the middle of the line to jump the queue."

Pros: "Boarding process, food and entertainment were excellent."
Cons: "Seats seemed a little small, even for economy."

Pros: "Food and eating with proper utensils, Brandy after dinner"
Cons: "Entrainment center glitch. Headphone quality."

Cons: "Food quality was mediocre for a business class flight."

Pros: "The crew was amazing and the food was great."
Cons: "Something did not go right with our booking so it took some work for the airline to get it figured out for us. Thankfully we had left plenty of time. But that was an unexpected stress."

Pros: "The seats seemed to have more space on this plane which was nice."
Cons: "It felt strange that the crew members completely skipped over me when serving lunch and drinks. At least something as basic as water should be given to all passengers."

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: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."

Pros: "The boarding was easy and you didn't have to wait inline for that long"
Cons: "KLM needs to upgrade the entertainment. It was very hard to see the images on the screen. The planes that KLM uses are old and they sure need to be upgraded."

Pros: "The attendants took great care of us. Super smooth flight."

Pros: "Good information and helpfil boarding."
Cons: "Has to wait in confined area fir nearly 2 hrs before boarding. No restroom or refreshments within that area."

Pros: "The aircraft was clean"
Cons: "The food was terrible, wifi was extremely expensive (Delta had free messaging over their wifi)"

Pros: "The food was excelent"
Cons: "I have to pay to pay a little more confort"

Pros: "Good efficient flight crew friendly and helpful"

Pros: "Flight was on time and quick and comfortable"

Pros: "Crew was friendly..business class seat was very comfortable and seemed wider than most Nice power outlets great entertainment system"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"

Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy! We ended up flying from Toronto to Paris then to Bordeaux. Lost my upgrade money for seats. Now have to deal with KLM for refund!"

Pros: "I was upgraded to Buisness so, no complaints"
Cons: "No Marlboro light cigarettes on the duty free shopping cart"

Pros: "They were awesome."

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: "Crew was friendly, and the food was better than the usual KLM fare."
Cons: "The "new" seats were hard and uncomfortable. Avoid any kinds of seats near the bathroom in a configuration with 3 abreast next to the windows. The "aisle" seat is essentially a "waiting area" for the rest room."

Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic and funny"
Cons: "Tiny seats"

Pros: "Food and staff were great"
Cons: "Entertainment system old and not as many options as other KLM flight. No power on aircraft for charging"

Pros: "I have no complaints about the air crew. They where pleasant and attentive. Plenty of free entertainment. The food was good."
Cons: "my only complaint is the USB ports didn't work on any of the chairs that me and my family where assigned to."

Cons: "I missed my flight because of MU"

Pros: "Having exit aisle made a huge difference in comfort Crew were EXCELLENT"
Cons: "Food was not very good Tasteless and rubbery"

Pros: "Almost missed flight due to line at customs and having to pick up suitcase and check in again, they did wait for me though"

Pros: "Reasonable seat space for economy. Good selection of movies. Food reasonably good. Crew very efficient."
Cons: "Boarding at Amsterdam was disorganized. All economy boarded together. No row number boarding (which was the process for the outbound flight from San Francisco). Lights in economy were not switched off or even dimmed during the flight making it difficult to sleep especially if you had a window seat."

Pros: "Not time departure and cabin crew were effective and efficient."
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "Seat confort"
Cons: "2 hours delayed, even tea has to be paid"

Pros: "It was overall officient, basically on time and comfortable"
Cons: "Getting off the ground took quite a while even though we arrived basically on time"

Pros: "My last answer should have mentioned that the airline I referred to was Loganair not British Airways. Coffee and a Tunnocks biscuit at no charge"

Pros: "Crew were great and we left and arrived slightly early which was nice"
Cons: "The in flight magazines and safety cards were ripped and damaged. Not a good look for the flag carrier"

Pros: "quick boardling, good flight, enough personal space in business class"
Cons: "I do wish passengers would sit until the seatbelt signs are off and not all jump up and open the over heard bins and drop things"

Pros: "Crew cheerful"
Cons: "Beyond their control. Flight delayed 50 mins"

Cons: "there was a mechanical error which kept us on board the plane for 20 minute increments for nearly 3 hours until they had us switch planes"

Pros: "Boarding and on time departure."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"

Pros: "Typical BA efficiency."
Cons: "What’s the difference between BA and EasyJet?"

Pros: "On time, all the staff were lovely at the terminals and on the plane"
Cons: "All goid"

Pros: "The captain was very apologetic and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour, meaning we arrived at almost midnight and for me and a few other people their electronic boarding passes did not work properly I was refused at the departures gate and told to go to the British airways counter to get a paper boarding pass printed out. I also saw some other people with British airways electronic boarding passes having similar problems."

Cons: "We where delayed for just over an hour"

Cons: "Too hot, meant to arrive 5 mins early but ended up 15 mins late as we sat on the runway for about half an hour without air conditioning."

Cons: "Delayed 30 minutes"

Pros: "No entertainment on the flight"

Pros: "Good flight. Friendly crew members. We checked our carry on because the flight was full and the attendants said that they wouldn’t have room for all the bags. Checking the bags was very easy and we got to board the plane first."

Pros: "Professional crew, comfortable seats with adequate legroom"
Cons: "No beverage without paying, extra bag fee, no jetway at Heathrow (bus to plane)"

Pros: "Very good aircraft!"

Pros: "Free movies Comfy seats Good food Attentative and friendly staff As a USA citizen - I would love to put us up as the pennacle, but British Airways puts United and American Airlines to shame."
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "As per above"

Pros: "All BA staff were professional, pleasant and helpful. My seat had more leg room than I was expecting (after a flight Seattle to Heathrow where my knees were jammed against the seat ahead of me."
Cons: "I was frustrated that I had to pay for either a cup of coffee or water. Since all healthcare providers recommend that one must drink water on a flight to stay hydrated and healthy, a complimentary bottle of water would have supported healthy travel. Due to a short layover in Heathrow, I had no time to fill my own water bottle."

Pros: "Helpful and courteous crew"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Full flight, but still excellent courteous service from all members of staff."

Pros: "On time, friendly crew"

Pros: "Flight as always great"
Cons: "Delay made me miss two meetings"

Pros: "The flight we ended up taking was just fine. The crew was very nice, most of the food was good, and the seats were comfortable even in stowage."
Cons: "Our flight was about 10 hours so we got 2 meals, 1 hot 1 cold. The hot meal had a vegetarian option and that was acceptable. The cold meal was a chicken salad sandwich with no other choices. As a vegetarian we tried to take off the chicken salad part and just eat the rest but that didn't leave much. Vegetarian options for all meals would have been nice."

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: "Service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Cabin crew was amazing..... didnt mind the delay things happen"

Cons: "Price & food not so good."

Cons: "It would be nice to have a free juice or soft drink on this flight. They only offer free water, and then you have to ask for it."

Cons: "Bag didn't make it, and then the system to get it returned doesn't work as it should."

Cons: "I made the mistake of buying a no checked baggage ticket- they charged me more to check my bag than it cost me for the ticket (65 British pounds). How do they get away with this? Many passengers had carry-ons that probably weighed as much as my luggage, yet I have to pay a huge fee. Plus, extra charge to choose a seat, and not even a glass of water on the flight. Last time I choose to fly British Airlines."

Pros: "The BA agent after immigration did a wonderful job getting us on the next flight, which saved us from losing our entire vacation."
Cons: "The luggage took 45 minutes to arrive at which point we only managed to still get our rental car due to an extremely helpful Europcar agent. Otherwise, we would have been stranded at Glasgow airport overnight and would have lost our hotel reservation."

Pros: "Very attentive, kind caring"

Pros: "Everyone was very pleasant to deal with. And I even got upgraded"

Pros: "I did get to Glasgow"
Cons: "Boarding by bus, late, expensive, bag fee, no drink."

Pros: "easy boarding, land at T5 which is a very well designed terminal"
Cons: "check is was horrendous. Long queues of people, long wait and not enough people to man the check in counters. Sitting down in my seat my kneeds immediately banged on the seat in front of me. Its clear that this aircraft has less leg space that then usual. And now you have to pay for all food and drink. £9 for a sandwich and G&T."

Pros: "I like the comfort of the BA planes even for such a short hop, efficient service and fast."
Cons: "Shame the service no longer includes a complimentary snack/drink, especially as the prices have not changed. Doesn't encourage brand loyalty, although on that route BA sadly have the monopoly."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "British Airways carrier American Airlines was not clearly notified on tickets/boarding passes/itineraries nor was there any communication between the carriers, so when I checked into British Airways I got no help expediting my check in at American. It was confusing and no one was helpful and instead flip. At American every interaction, whether about connecting flight boarding passes, my five and half hour delay or seating left me feeling unimportant and disrespected. I will never use either airline again nor Kayak"

Pros: "Cleanliness, staff, food, staff"
Cons: "@ 6'4" leg room was tight. Please would airlines load from the back to be more efficient?"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "As like always late"

Pros: "Nothing, felt like I was back in the 80s"
Cons: "Old plane, had no port for usb cables, no tv on the back of each seat, no wifi. Flight from Philadelphia 5 days prior had it all."

Cons: "Not really friendly. Nothing to drink. My chair was broken so I couldn't really lean back."

Pros: "After a slight delay, the crew got everyone on board quickly, and we got off, making up some of the time we had lost. A real "greased landing" by the pilot, (I didn't know we were down till he hit the brakes)."

Pros: "Clean and comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing complimentary, no screens on exit row seats"

Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Everything was excellent"

Pros: "on time.."
Cons: "very busy no free tea coffee."

Pros: "Very little. BA customer service is brusque and focussed on getting rid of you as quickly as possible."
Cons: "Trolley service - aside from poor range, high prices & getting missed as they weren't interested in service...."

Pros: "A little more leg room than regular flights, yummy food, more bathrooms. Even though I couldn't sleep during the whole 10 hours, there was a lot to watch and play provided by the airline."
Cons: "During the flight, I called the service button a few times and no one came. I don't mind going up and getting water, but it was a hassle being in a middle seat and asking my fiancé to let me out several times."
