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.

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."

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: "Space and service"
Pros: "The live streaming of the NBA finals game on the flight was excellent."

Pros: "Good onboard entertainment. Normal headphone jacks."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional, food was quite good as far as airlines go, chicken korma not bad at all."

Pros: "The staff were great, the flight was on time, the boarding was easy."
Cons: "The food. Both my sons are vegan and there weren't any vegan options apart from crisps and nuts. Vegans are taking over the World so you need to be able to give them something to eat!"

Pros: "I made it"
Cons: "If I were a bit older or slower I wouldn’t have made plane. It is unfortunate I had two leg journey to Ireland. BWI - Heathrow- Dublin is a difficult journey with 1 hour layover. I nearly had to push old ladies out of the way to make connection. Very stressful and left headphones in haste to make flight. Not an enjoyable experience."
Cons: "Food options very poor. Was not asked about veg or non veg just directly served veg. Entertainment on a 9 hour flight was devoid of choices."

Cons: "Snacks were good!"
Pros: "I like the friendliness of the crew. They were always pleasant and accommodating. The hot meals were good."
Cons: "I didn't like the cramped spaces, especially when the person in front of me would put their seat back. It was hard to get in and out if you needed to use the restrooms and to eat with your food on the tray table ."
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: "The best part of the Stuttgart to London trip is speed of getting through the Stuttgart Airport - no lines and very efficient. And the fact that it is a jet (my preference over turbo-props)."
Cons: "No entertainment connections. Not even free coffee, tea, or soda. Very no frill. Even a small bottle water and hand wipes would have been better than nothing. Not much interaction with crew."
Cons: "The seat space it’s very little, the food was terrible!"
Cons: "Not even a cup of coffee! WOW. they charge and nickle and dime you to death. I had to buy a seat to be guaranteed to sit next to my wife. the base price for the flight was reasonable but then they added extra charges that were almost 1/2 more. the baggage charge was high. If I have my choice would not fly BA again."
Pros: "Felt room in spite of being in coach. Friendly flight attendants."
Pros: "Employees were very helpful. Wheelchair personal were efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Lack of a separate "extra legroom". Have to be careful to get premium economy and then hope I can get bulkhead seat at airport."
Pros: "Excellent crew, great food and on time departure/arrival"
Cons: "I had the misfortune of sitting with an extremely rude and offensive passenger. He was verbally abusive on more than one occasion. Was extremely rude to crew. 747-400 lovely but very tired interior now....I know that these aircraft will be phased out, so not much can be done in the interim"
Cons: "1) Tiny seats 2) Rude service in the airplane and rude customer service in the airport boot at British Airways 3) Lost my flight to JFK as the transfer took forever 4) Accommodation after the airline screwed up was little to nothing."
Pros: "Nice aircraft and flight!"
Cons: "We were never offfered a snack! The people in the rows ahead of us got a snack and the people behind us did as well. Last leg of a 3 flight series of about 13 hours (and overnight), so some coffee and a small snack would have been enjoyed."
Cons: "I think it's a real shame that BA have gone budget and no longer offer complimentary food on their shorter haul flights. At least they're using M&S though."
Cons: "The crew didn't even offer me a drink or food for purchase The baggage allowance fees were ridiculous -- I hate to pay despite being executive status and when I called several times prior to flight there were not helpful and referred me to airport who charged me a lot of $$! I willl be writing a note to customer service. In addition they are cutting back I was told and closed the ticket counter in Faeo Portugal -- not flying them again"
Pros: "Very professional"
Pros: "Flight had a good landing."
Cons: "Last seat on the right side and it would not recline. I was ready to sleep on the flight but without even the slightest bit of recline in the seat it was not going to happen. No food No entertainment No comfort No sleep"
Pros: "Nice new airplane (787). On time. Good food. Plenty of fluids served."
Pros: "Boarding was straight forward with the automated scanning of boarding pass."
Cons: "I was totally taken aback that I had to pay for tea and coffee. After having to pay for baggage and to reserve my seat for the flight. At least beverages could have been offered at no additional cost. Very disappointed with BA."
Cons: "Flight delayed 1 hr resulting in my missing the connecting flight and an extra 12 hr wait at the airport, not a happy situation!"
Cons: "Bags took forever to arrive. After a long flight and jet lag the last thing you need is to stand around waiting for your bags. This seems to be a problem with this particular airport (ABIA)"
Pros: "friendly staff, decent food"
Cons: "seats weren't particularly comfortable, the side bolsters on the economy seats are a little too aggressively tall"
Cons: "I know that I shouldn't be shocked by the continued degradation of the airlines, but there should be a line. To me, a simple glass of water should not be too much to ask."
Pros: "Very efficient and speedy service delivering my delayed luggage on the way from Toronto to Amman."
Pros: "This flight was for my mother. The wheelchair service was very helpful. The crew were very nice. The food was great. Will fly with BA again."
Pros: "The flight was fine..."
Cons: "But Dulles Airport needs to control the level of toxicity experienced when certain entitled passengers think they have to pack the tarmac shuttle under NO PARTICULAR AUTHORITY, shouting "MOVE BACK [YOU] PEOPLE" into the closest ear. There should be someone other than the driver on those shuttles monitoring people, since they obviously need a babysitter."
Pros: "Since online check-in did not work, my daughter and I were a little nervous that we had not been able to reserve seats together. Imagine our worry when we were told at the airport that we did not have seats at all! However, the BA agent calmly worked to get us seats .... and my daughter and I enjoyed business class for the first time in our lives! What an experience! Thank you so much!"
Cons: "Nothing -- it was fantastic!"
Cons: "Too much Indian based food....too much curry....."
