Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "We thought we were flying AirFrance as our emails came from them and were surprised to learn after waiting in the AirFrance baggage drop queue for 30 mins that we were in the wrong place."
Pros: "Delta employees exceedingly cordial. food poor to moderate, seating space impossibly small but pillow and blanket were provided"
Cons: "seats too close from front to back, and not adequately cushioned"
Cons: "I was flying from CDG to LGD and my bag was lost, yet the baggage claim system showed it arrived...... Thankful I packed some essentials in my carry on. The bigger issue will be dealing with my medical insurance company to get medications replaced that were in the checked bag."
Cons: "Wifi didn't work the entire flight"
Cons: "the inefficiency and extra steps required to travel. Quite lacking in smooth transition between flights, significantly below expectations relative to other airlines"
Pros: "Short flight just snacks. Was able to get a seat on standby for an earlier flight cutting my total travel time down by a couple hours. Very helpful gate agents"
Pros: "Clean and good size sears"
Cons: "Slow boarding, crew tires and it showed, pretzels no nuts,"
Pros: "Great flight!"
Pros: "Efficient hop to Boston"
Pros: "Modern plane from ATL to BOS. On board games were a fun distraction."
Cons: "The fact that booking with kayak wouldn't let me pick my seats and traveling with 2 kids under 4 it made it very stressful trying to figure out how we could sit together or even the same end of the plane."
Pros: "Free entertainment and free food was unexpected and very welcomed, especially given the trend of charging for more and more features."
Cons: "The tsa is worthless"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "I think I caught a stomach bug on one of the 3 legs of this route. More likely on last 2, i.e. Mumbai to RDU, as I fell sick almost 10-12 hrs after my last flight meal."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive with me"
Pros: "aircraft is very clean. faster than imaged. the most impressed thing is it has a variety of entertainment programs."
Cons: "The plane was delayed by more than 3 hours due to "weather problems" earlier in the day. Delta did not permit re-booking to flights that left JFK for Boston earlier, even tho there seats available, instead insisting that we had to wait for our assigned flight. Small snacks (regular Coke, no Diet) did not really compensate well."
Pros: "Easy flight. Plane and crew were fine"
Cons: "It was a short flight but no entertainment on this plane."
Pros: "Airline stewards were very friendly and pleasant."
Cons: "We booked with Delta, but were put on Air France. Even though we had our boarding passes in hand we had to wait in long, slow line for baggage tags because they would not print from kiosk. There was minimal Air France staff on duty serving thousands of passengers during busy season (July). While the lines grew larger, the staff was reduced from 4 to 2. Another long, slow line for customs, another long slow line for security=Charles De Gaulle airport was awful. We arrived at the airport 4 hours before our departure time and got to our boarding gate with no time to spare."
Pros: "We flew a plane that had 2 row seats. I booked that for my daughter and me as well as seats ahead of an exit so we would have no one behind as. Great seats and they reclined quitea bit. We were very pleased."
Pros: "Very professionals"
Pros: "Good Food Nice Flight Attendants"
Pros: "Plenty of entertainment options Frequent meals and snacks Attentive service from flight crew"
Cons: "Boarding process was slower than anticipated One of our bags did not make it"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Pros: "The meal on Air France (a code share with Delta) was excellent."
Cons: "Very bad seat in the exit row. It was very narrow and hardlly reclined at all. there was no place to put your things because there was no seat in front of it. Legroom was very good."
Pros: "Easy boarding. Due to bad weather they kept us well informed. One hour late but not their fault."
Cons: "A little chilly in the waiting are."
Pros: "Exceptional flight staff -"
Cons: "Smooth and easy"
Pros: "Cabin crew was wonderful. The food was exceptional."
Cons: "The infotainment system was a little spotty."
Cons: "Boarding in LA was. Mess"
Pros: "It was my husband's birthday and the stewardess (red dress, long brown hair) went out of her way to make him feel special by bringing champagne, cookies and even chocolate once we were getting off the plane. I was very touched."
Cons: "The guy next to me was kind of smelly but was very nice."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was great. We boarded and took off on time. I have no complaints."
Cons: "No complaints! I had a perfect diet coke and pretzels while I watched tv."
Cons: "We were waiting until the airport assigned us a parking slot. Instead of leaving the entertainment system on, they turned it off. We basically spent 1.5h without entertainment system."
Cons: "The fact that my flight was delayed for the second time in the past week"
Cons: "Three hours late leaving Paris. Missed our connecting flight to saint louis. Not much help from Delta."
Pros: "I'm surprise that Delta airline serves free dinner for domestic flight, which is definitely a compliment. I would travel with Delta airline again"
Pros: "Pilot got us back safe through some bad turbulence, the flight was shaky from start to finish. They gave extra snacks, were attentive to any needs. Would definitely trust Delta pilots again. Also with this being a connecting flight, it was nice that the group of five I was in was given an entire row to ourselves."
Pros: "It was my first time to fly Air France. They exceeded my exceptions. The service was great and they made sure we were very comfortable. I will definitely fly Air France again."
Pros: "Flew delta a few days ago and this wasn't an issue but you've gotta do better on the wifi and tv front. Part of my decision to fly delta is entertainment."
Cons: "Wifi was too slow to stream (audio only) a live sporting event. No satellite tv for the entire flight with no announcement - I had to ask the crew twice what was up."
Pros: "movies and food"
Cons: "CDG airport is the worst!!!"
Cons: "Because KAYAK reassigned my flight to airfare.com, I actually flew into JFK. Not my preference and the rebooking process was a nightmare. Very disappointed and I will not be using KAYAK ever again. So stressful."
Pros: "Lots of seat space even in economy, I felt very comfortable and not cramped on my flight. Food was decent and flight attendants were very attentive. My flight was kind of an outlier experience as someone on my flight fell very ill and needed immediate medical attention. The KLM employees on board did a very good job of taking care of the situation and making sure everyone else on board still had a calm flight experience."
Cons: "My connecting flight was scheduled too close to my landing time."
Cons: "No TVs for int'l flight, disorganized and chaotic boarding process, limited snack options"
Pros: "The food has REALLY improved!! GREAT CREW!"
Pros: "Bulkhead seats - logos legroom"
Cons: "Very long boarding process - security checks and a long walk from connecting flight"
Pros: "Frequent food offerings throughout the flight."
Cons: "Boarding the plane was not easy. We had to show our passports to a man who quizzed us on where we were coming from, where we were going, and asking questions about our luggage. After that we had to go through another security point and scan our boarding passes, but most people could not get through with our boarding passes, so we had to get in another line to show our passes to our agent. It was very stressful since we were running late since the border control line was so long! While it was stressful, I am glad that they were careful regarding the security,"
Pros: "Loved it all. That's good advice above :)"
Cons: "It was a blast!"
Cons: "No tvs."
Cons: "First flight delayed, missed flight to SF, stuck in frankfurt. A hotel is not adequate compensation"
Pros: "The crew were helpful"
Cons: "I had to pay luggage fees"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, nice they still give a snack"
Pros: "Attends were good."
Cons: "Jain meal is not available which is available in all the flights like Emirates, United airlines, Turkish airlines etc"
Cons: "The seat-back screens were very annoying and not very responsive."
Cons: "The vegan meal. No airline appears to know how to make a healthy and tasty meal."
Cons: "viewing programs was not user friendly and slow (touch screen) other airlines have done a better job on the user interface of the entertainment system"
Pros: "Clean, new plane."
Cons: "Baggage got lost on a direct flight. A lot to improve here."
Cons: "Food was disappointing...especially 'pizza' at the end. Crew was very helpful to family with baby."
Pros: "Cabin attendants were terrific. Very attentive. Ms. Byrne, our cabin attendant and the Purser, a gentleman whose name I didn't note, solved problems and met our needs (including finding my wife's iPad that fell beside her seat while sleeping where it couldn't be retrieved without help)."
Cons: "Few technical issues with new plane...no wi-fi on flight and lights not working in lavatory."
Pros: "The food and the crew were great! We were more than 450 people on that flight."
Cons: "My tv screen froze 3 hours into the flight so I could not watch anything. Space is so tight for such a long flight. The aircraft was a brand new Airbus and next to me there was a rip on the wall cover. I could see what is underneath...i had a slight fear that it could get bigger..I understand that the fuselage expands in the air."
Pros: "i received an unexpected upgrade which worked out very well."
Cons: "Poor customer service (I asked for a glass of water, they were almost annoyed and it took 20 minutes), delayed flight, missed luggage. Never again."
Pros: "Crew are very polite and supportive!"
Pros: "friendliness, food, great flight and landing, clean bathrooms. And a big kudos for allowing again 2 suitcases free of charge"
Pros: "Good food and entertainment options. Efficient boarding and security checks. Some very pleasant and helpful crew members but some not (see negative comments)"
Cons: "Seating for tall passengers very cramped. Crew didn't make slightest attempt to help. Other airlines have noticed and helped regarding this. *Some* crew members were abrupt and perfunctory when they could have been pleasant. Nothing special was being demanded of them. Automated check in luggage machines are frustrating to use for many. many passengers."
Pros: "I received a surprise upgrade to Business class. The flight crew was very attentive and flight was easy."
Pros: "Seats, crow attitude, on-time flight"
Pros: "Every thing was great except the seats were small"
Cons: "The seats are small"
Pros: "New plane, good food, nice attentive crew, on time"
Cons: "Seats and seat space are shrinking, s not super comfortable."
Pros: "Only slight turbulence. Flight was only 10 minutes late."
Cons: "The choice of games and movies. Space too cramped, and I am only 5' tall!!!"
Pros: "Everything was excellent from the curteous flight crew to the accommodations to the meals. I will fly Lufthansa again!"
Pros: "Crew very efficient and professional"
Pros: "Faster, newer planes."
Cons: "Flights were late and boarding was caios, no one had any clue what to do. Blankets were filthy. Entertainment had limited choice. Considering I took six flights in this month, I will let it slide that they ran out of New movies. Worst part was food. Obviously, there is no quality consideration when they decide menu. Check Emirates or other similar fare bracket airlines to understand the gravity of Lufthansa food problem. If one reason I had to choose to drop Lufthansa from my future consideration then that would be worst food and drinks. I would strongly recommend that they should assign people who need additional time to board at the back of the plane. It will help them to go back of the plane faster and avoid gridlock in the middle. Another advantage is it will help other passengers leave plane faster at the end of the ride. Boarding process will be come significantly faster by filling the plane from back to front by loading passanger with children and who needs time at the first loading area at the back of the plane. Thanks"
Pros: "Clean plane, decent entertaiment"
Cons: "the food was pretty much the same that we had during our previous flight from Moscow to Frankfurt and of the same mediocre quality. the plane was freezing cold - this was the first time in my frequent travels that i had to use the provided blanket. My girlfriend used 2 of them. When I called the flight attendant for the extra blanket using the bottom nobody showed up - I had to stop an attendant passing by to get the extra blanket."
Cons: "TV didn't work"
Cons: "They misplaced my oversized luggage even after I paid the overpriced $100 fee (87 euro cash only) for a 2nd checked bag. It was not defined by weight or size, but a straight fee of $100 for any kind of extra bag"
Pros: "The 747 is a big plane. Each seat had a full entertainment system in the back of the seat ahead. Seats actually reclined! Cannot recommend cabin crew highly enough. Efficient, polite, professional."
Cons: "I cannot understand why any airline continues to board forward to aft, forcing people with just a backpack to stack up behind others, allowed to bring obscenely over-sized carry-on bags, wrestling to get their sea chests into the overhead bins. Seat upholstery could have been better for such a long flight. I have "asnahtfuL" permanently embossed on my butt. 747 is an aging craft and this plane had disappointing response to turbulence."
Pros: "I like everything about your operation. my experience with you was far better to what i experienced fly another airline last time i visited United States. thank you."
Pros: "Comfy seats for economy. Decent food. Hot towels for hands. Plenty of food and beverages. Very good entertainment screens, decent movie selects."
Cons: "That better seats are so much more expensive."
Cons: "Crying children!"
Pros: "Everything except the delay. I love the free movies and free headphones. I love getting two blankets. The flight attendants were great!"
Cons: "two and 1/2 hour delay before taking off."
Cons: "The connecting times between the flights was very tight. Especially as the line for the passport check in Frankfurt was so long. And then the gate was so far away. A mad dash. Stressful."
Cons: "seats are too narrow"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, good food and service."
Cons: "Check-in is bit tedious and the kiosk didn't work properly. Flight was delayed due to some incidents but they are not airlines' fault.."
Cons: "Delayed taking off due to airport queue."
Pros: "Very family-friendly"
Pros: "There was very little if anything positive"
Cons: "Delays led to missing connecting flight. Delays could've been avoided. Staff were unhelpful, noncommunicative and poorly informed."
Pros: "The crew were excellent, seats were comfortable, and the entertainment system had enough options to pass the time."
Cons: "The food was less than desirable."
Cons: "My original seat reservation 38 D with my booking was changed to seat 42D last row next to toilets and very limited space on flight from Munich to Boston without my consent. Trying to get my original seat reservation was met with total ignorance from the flight attendants and boarding agent.If you are really interested about details please give me a call @781-864-0272 Bogdan"
Pros: "Brand new Airbus 350 on the first transatlantic flight for Lufthansa was very nice"
Cons: "The special menus items do not cater to people who have peanut and tree nut allergies. i was only able to eat pretzels and drink coca cola."
Pros: "Clean aircraft and fast service."
Cons: "Economy area flight Frankfurt - Boston 26th October. Tall, well dressed, middle aged Italian gentleman beside me on aisle seat talking on his phone from boarding until we started to accelerate for takeoff. I had to ask him to shut his phone off twice. Staff not looking out for phone use. Then he was receiving text as we landed in Boston and never even bothered to put on his seat belt. Again staff did not notice. I travel a lot and normally air crew notice these things. Booked to carry skis via the Lufthansa US call center and was told there was a special offer and they were free for US bound flights. This was great news as I had assumed I had to pay. On bag check-in the associate told me they had booked them as golf clubs not skis. She also did not agree skis were free and spent 15 minutes reading the details of the contract and talking with an associate. She was polite but firm about it and I had to pay Euro100 to get them checked in."
Pros: "Staff was exceptionally friendly and efficient. Aircraft was pleasant and clean. Seats are a bit uncomfortable in that they seemed to lack cushion comfort but space was OK for economy class. I will highly recommend your airline to others. Thank you!"
Cons: "Food quality was not good."
Pros: "The service and food were great, flight was on time."
Cons: "The TV didn't work very well, it took me 20 minutes to get the movie to play."
Pros: "Flight was on schedule. Was lucky to get a empty seat next to me so plenty of room. Glad they provided the requested specialty meal."
Cons: "Boarding occurred an mass. No order what so ever so long lines getting to the plane and in the plane. The head phone jack was for a two prong headphone so it forced you to use the headphone they provided or only hear from one ear."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Pizza dinner sucked"
Cons: "The food was really disappointing... First time flying on lufthansa. Heard a lot of good things about it. Flight was ok overll but rather disappointing compared to what i heard"
Pros: "Very pleasant crew, lovely service, good selection of entertainment"
Cons: "Can't complain about anything"
Pros: "Staff was very good, plane was clean"
Cons: "Free wifi"
Pros: "Very nice airplane and pleasant crew"
Pros: "Overall a nice and good flight"
Cons: "Just a detail, my “head holder” (not too sure how it is called) would not hold in position. Also, staff was a bit slow to come after being called, I had to go and ask for water by myself at some point since no one was coming after 15minites of waiting..."
Pros: "Pleasant crew. Appropriate and efficiently served snack."
Cons: "Boarding and disembarkation were slow."
Pros: "Flight arrived on time"
Cons: "No food provided "due to a strike the previous day". Not sure why this would impact on providing a sandwich or snack particularly when champagne was still available for first class passengers."

Cons: "Flight got cancelled"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and flight was calm"

Cons: "Flight very late"
Pros: "Just as I expected. And I made my last connection easily."
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seating with enough leg room."
Cons: "Provide dinner before getting to joburg, instead of a snack. Flight arrives late so dinner would be appreciated"
Pros: "My seat"
Cons: "My suitcase wasn’t in the plane. 8 hours in the plane and no one offered us water. We had to look for flight attendant. Entertainment wasn’t great not too many choices and quality of screens was poor"
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: "Like the overall KLM experience"
Cons: "Food could have had better quality and the stewardess served it all at once versus in the various courses."
Cons: "Lost a single baggage item, a car seat. Critical for us to leave the airport, and delayed us for over an hour upon arrival. Gave us a loaner car seat that barely fit our child."
Pros: "quick/efficient boarding - good staff - good food - easy flight !"
Cons: "the connecting times for klm seem to be very close - if your running late to start - you may not make your next one -"

Cons: "wasn't able to take the flight since I missed it"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, landing at vce took an additional 10 minutes due to no one at the jet way. Luggage service was very slow"

Pros: "Staff very pleasant"
Cons: "Evening snack was not the greatest breakfast was pretty food"
Pros: "Need better quality tvs for such a long flight and better movies There were only 4 Bollywood movies and not the latest ones either"
Cons: "Our two hour connection in Paris became 30 minutes because Air France was late in leaving Washington. So our luggage didn't make to to KLM to Amsterdam. My poor rating was because the luggage handling was really poor. Lots of flights from Paris to Amsterdam (almost hourly), but my bag showed up 12 hours later. My wife's bag took 36 hours. And yes, we checked in together. There were lots of confusing messages"
Pros: "Boarding was as expected, crew & food were ok. Nothing else positive to extract out of this flight."
Cons: "Delayed flight, horrible baggae policy when the flight is actually operated by a partner of the company you bought the ticket from and not the actual company. Dirty seats, no in-flight entertainment whatsoever (not even a magazine)."
Pros: "We got a meal for a 1h flight only"
Cons: "No entertainment but normal for this type of flight"
Pros: "Good service onboard, good food. On time."
Cons: "Delay can occur sometimes but it wiuld be better to be explained its reason and the estimated time for boarding. The customer service at CDG airport was the worst ever and all people standing boarding desk were useless without any mind what they are doing."
Pros: "On both of my flights to New York City, I was amazed at how friendly and helpful the flight attendants were to the passengers. On my short flight from Basel to Amsterdam, a young French speaking girl was concerned about how to manage getting to her next gate. The flight attendants talked to her and arranged for someone to take her there. On my longer flight from Amsterdam to New York City, there was a customer who was in distress about missing a previous flight and not making it to her connecting flight in New York. One of the flight attendants reassured her until she stopped crying and calmed down. That same flight attendant was always so positive and cheerful in all she did. The rest of the crew was top notch. This was my best experience flying in such a long time. Well done, KLM crews of flights 1984 and 0645 on July 10!"

Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Everting so good ex"

Pros: "The last two times we connected in Amsterdam to Humberside our luggage was delayed. This time it wasn’t. The simple things give the greatest satisfaction"
Pros: "Cabin crew very pleasant"
Cons: "Lost our bags, little sympathy from staff"
Pros: "The included snacks and the seats."
Cons: "KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Also, really tired of the fake business class on these flights..."
Cons: "OLD plane without comfort or entertainment"
Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."
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!"
Pros: "Loads of leg room"

Cons: "Watched flight attendant drop tongs on floor, pick them up and put them back in the bowl of buns and continue to use them to serve bums"
Pros: "Food and drink service"
Cons: "Boarding pass facility"
Pros: "It's the best flight I could get for such a low price. But don't expect to to get the best and newest planes around but it's still overall a good experience."

Pros: "Overall very nice flight, even comes with free drink and snack"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Having to pay extra to pick a seat prior to check-in. I didn't, and got a decent seat anyway."
Pros: "I like the crew and their service, the food was amazing speacially the vanilla cheese cake desert was on point, loved it. I loved the “my flight “interaction on the screen and the different view of the plane, cockpit view, left, right etc.. amazing feature."
Cons: "The seat could have been much better as far as reclining and space. Overall I loved the flight."
Pros: "The crew was OK, but nothing special."
Cons: "Air France should not sell tickets for which the connection flights are almost impossible to catch. My luggage was not transferred to my connecting flight. I had to run to catch the flight to Bucharest. At CDC there were only two custom officers for checking passport of EU citizens, on a Saturday morning with hundreds and hundreds incoming travelers. On top of it, one female officer was rude. Typical french :("

Pros: "Arrived on time."
Cons: "Overhead luggage storage jammed with luggage belonging to someone who was sitting far behind my seat."
Cons: "Train your ground crew. Our luggage was not placed on our flight from Paris to Amsterdam and were sent to Amsterdam on separate planes. My husband’s medication was in his bag. This was a great inconvenience for us. Never again on Air Canada. I suggest you explore the baggage process used by Delta."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and boarding efficient I lucked out with first class"

Pros: "Flight crew, pilot,food and entertainment options were great"
Cons: "Baggage took a while to reach baggage claim but maybe a bit impatient after a long day"
Cons: "Missed flight due to lack of direction, last minute gate change and they shut door in our face after telling us they were holding plane"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed so we could not make out connecting flight. We had to wait 6 hours get another flight to Atlanta and then fly to Boston the next day, longest flight ever was horrible I called out sick from work too."
Cons: "Tiny uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Boarding staff helpful with Disabilities; food services quick and pleasant; interior cabin temps appropriate."
Cons: "Why is boarding so prolonged? 1-Small children and elders cannot stand for 20/30 minutes 2-Why are various sections (particularly Economy), no longer boarded by rows. and from rear first...so people don’t clog aisles, step over others, injure or be injured by heavy overhead moves?"
Pros: "Everything except the seat. Service ("would you care for a drink/beverage?") could be better."
Cons: "I paid for a"premium" seat on one of the emergency exit rows for the extra legroom. This was next to a galley. The seat itself was no more than 18" wide (NO EXAGGERATION!!) if not less. I had to sit on an angle (one butt cheek at a time) for 9 yours. I do not have a big butt either. This seat should have been a discounted seat, not a premium seat. I am so angry about this, I will NEVER fly Air France again."
Cons: "Security services at Manchester airport...too long and not friendly at all"
Pros: "Nice staff, very professional and helpful."
Pros: "It was quick, very good space in premium economy. Good and friendly service. The food was better than expected"
Cons: "The crew did not announce the score of soccer cup semi final between Belgium and France"
Pros: "The flight had a delayed of 2 hours due a system issue, but the flight was comfortable, and the airplane was clean."
Cons: "I didn't like the check in, the personnel there were not so friendly and had discrepancies. We were a group of 6, and 2 of us were able to drop the bag in the check in. But the others were told that needed to wait 30 mins."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 times and when I was finally put on a flight that was leaving, they failed to check the connection in Paris (Left me 10 minutes to get from the aircraft to the other plane!) I was moved to SAA in the end after a truly traumatic time in Johannesburg. This is not the first time I have suffered at the hands of Air France sadly. Needless to say, I wont be booking with Air France again."
Pros: "Flight was smooth"
Pros: "Plane was clean. Pilots made up some of departure delay time in the air between NCE & CDG."
Cons: "Unorganized boarding process and minimal info or announcements regarding delay. Failure to respect SkyPriority status at boarding were disappointing. (Staff allowed it to be a bit pushy and chaotic and people were able to force their way in line, ahead of those who had been waiting in line.) Seats were okay but no recline and underseat storage was small. (Backpack wouldn't fit underseat and had to be stored in overhead.) Passengers crowding from back of plane upon arrival made it hard to deplane and felt rude."
Pros: "Offering a drink on such a short flight is appreciated albeit unusual these days. Crew was very professional and friendly."
Cons: "My seat was changed without my permission. Very unprofessional staff at Mumbai airport"
Pros: "Nothing particular"
Cons: "Nothing particular"
Pros: "It was Amazing staff helpfull and fresh.. love it"
Cons: "Flight of almost 3 hours was not entreteiment at all just magazines."
Cons: "The food: asked for vegetarian but got incipit vegan... Mostly rice with coconut milk"
Pros: "Good on a short flight"
Cons: "Paying for carry on due to weight limit. First time this ever happened!"
Pros: "Personal treatment I have received as I was with a 7 months baby. An agent helps me to carry my hand luggages up to the plane entrance and to pass in priority"
Cons: "2 hours delayed..."
Pros: "leg space in plane"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable with good recline. Food was good, but not excellent."
Cons: "They forgot the snack/breakfast service for the front right section of economy then had to rush it. Overall, the service was good, but some things just seemed off. An attendant call was never answered, etc."
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth and the crew friendly. Flight ran on time."
Cons: "Unloading the baggage took over 90 minutes, and there was no explanation for the delay and nobody from Air France in sight on the ground in Boston."
Pros: "Good seat near the front."
Cons: "Delayed arrival by 30 minutes."
Pros: "The flight crew and flights itself were great."
Cons: "I was told the wrong flight time, wrong terminal, wrong gate, and wrong airline. I couldn't check-in online. It was horribly inconvenient and I nearly missed the flight. We got there with 5 minutes until the doors closed."
Pros: "Good entertainment selection, and staff all very friendly. Food was pretty mediocre - main course was nice but the breakfast especially left a lot to be desired."
Pros: "British airways are putting effort into good bathrooms in airport. On time. No problems. Good quality food. Free tea and food."
Cons: "in seat 40 there was no food choice. for baggage."
Pros: "Flight attendants and service excellent."
Cons: "Hot meals were good but pizza roll was so bad. Might as well not give anything."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Crowded seating at back, shaky entertainment tablet, worst plane food (pasta) I have ever eaten."
Pros: "The flight was quite nice overall. The food was good, there was plenty of entertainment options, and the crew was pleasant."
Cons: "The boarding could have been organized a bit better: calling specific rows and maybe loading the plane from the back to front, not just having everyone board at once. A few too many interruptions while trying to sleep, watching a movie, or just not wanting to be bothered"
Pros: "Excellent leg room (I was the first row after the bathrooms). Kind and polite staff. I enjoyed that there were trivia games as well as movies. The free wine was an unexpected bonus."
Cons: "Usually I am moderately impressed with British Airways food, but not this time. The pasta alfredo was acceptable, but there was no vegetable aside from an overly cream-laden slaw and there were no recognizable greens in there. Maybe onion and celery. The bread roll was dense and dry."
Pros: "Crew is very helpful, friendly and attentive"
Cons: "Long delay sitting at Heathrow - not the fault of the airline, but discouraging. Seats are tight."
Pros: "I had an Indian inspired chicken dish. It was the first time I have ever enjoyed airplane food. Nicely done."
Cons: "I was lucky and got an emergency isle row. Even so, I am not a big person. I'm a 25 year old athlete. And I find the seats are getting tight. My shoulders are right at the edge. This isn't a condemnation of British Airways specifically, more a criticism of all airlines. This sardine style seating is a trend I'd like to roll back or at least halt."
Pros: "The food was adequate and when they brought drinks they were free. With the person in front of me reclining her seat I could not have my cup of water on the tray without it being tipped because it intruded too much. i am assuming the seat was broken as that would be silly to have a seat recline so much that you couldn't use the tray table properly."
Cons: "48 minutes and I turned the light off and on for a flight attendant numerous times. I finally had to speak out across the plane since the people blocking me in were sleeping. This was just to get a glass of water. Service was deplorable. People kept walking to the galley rather than the flight attendants attending. A sad state of affairs. I paid for extra leg room but apparently a plane change put me in a different seat which did not give extra leg room."
Cons: "Was not given an aisle seat"
Pros: "Early, relaxed boarding and departure; upgrade to comfortable seat; friendly and solicitous cabin attendant; large choice of movies."
Cons: "(Not the pilot's fault): Late arrival because landing had to be delayed. Oddly, we almost landed and then had to pull up again - never experienced this before."
Pros: "Early, relaxed boarding process was excellent."
Cons: "Only strong negative was the absence of any free drinks or snacks. A cup of tea cost over 2 pounds - ridiculous!"
Pros: "The flight left on time and the flight attendants were attentive and helpful."
Pros: "Staff very friendly and attentive"
Cons: "Boarding at Charles de Gaule airport in Paris. Always a mess."
Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "Charged me an extra 120 to check my bags"
Cons: "When we went to check in on 6/30, the website said all legs of our reservation have been flown. We had to call British Airways and then the booking company (Webjet) to finally get things sorted out. British Airways counted our flight from JFK to CDG as a "no show" but in reality, we had just missed our connecting flight because of so many delays at JFK. We had received no notification from Webjet or British Airways of these changes and were told that our taxes were refunded for the return tickets."
Pros: "Movies Food Wine"
Cons: "Could not get seat assigned until I was at the gate. Same thing occurred on the way to Edinburg. Not sure what the issue is but it happened both ways and was a problem."
Cons: "Seats were not as nice as on Lufthansa premium economy and there was no option to buy a pass to the business class lounge (as there is with Lufthansa). The return flight plane had no extendable leg rest in the seat as I did in the first flight. This was disappointing."
Pros: "The flight crew were nice, the flight was over before they could even finish drink service."
Cons: "Wheel chair assistance was very very bad. Airport crew made my parents to walk around 2 miles while changing the gates in London airport."
Pros: "Boarding was good and flight was on time. Crew were polite and attentive. Food was okay too."
Cons: "No leg room and as usual I had an uncomfortable 6 hours with my legs jammed against the seat in front. Having spent $900 on the flights I am not going to pay another $81 for the 'upgrade'. Also, even as a slim person, the seats are crammed together so we all knock elbows and I am disappointed that all the airlines continue to reduce space. Arrival at Logan, Boston was a nightmare...2 hours to get through passport control, customs and baggage pick up. Don't fly into Boston at 9pm Saturday night! I flew outbound with AerLingus and the leg room was better so I will look to fly with them next time."
Pros: "Did reasonably well for a large flight. Crew is courteous."
Cons: "The check-in ground crew does not appear knowledgeable nor cared for the details. We are a party of 5 with US and Canadian passports and Green cards which understandably the check-in process is not "standard." They should be more alert of the situation and help us along with the check-in process more appropriately instead of directly some of us one way and others another way and when pressed, they gave very unsatisfactory answers."
Cons: "Boarding was a complete mess. Boarded higher paying passengers first...then everyone else all at once instead of boarding from the rear of the plane forward. Took forever to board."
Pros: "Short flight, but it was OK."
Cons: "€75 to check a bag PER PASSENGER"
Pros: "Once I was actually at a boarding person to be checked in, the process was quick"
Cons: "Announcement was made to all passengers inn rows 20-40 or so to line up, which we did. Then, we were told only priority passengers were to be boarding. Priority passengers asked where their linne was, and a BA crew member snappishly answered "where the sign says Priority". The sign wasn't able to be seen, and these passengers shouldn't have been faulted for BA's ineptness. After being checked in, I asked an another BA agent where to go. Upon arriving at the aircraft, I was rather frostily told "you're onn the wrong level" and pointed to the stairs. I let them know that I was on the 2nd level due to the direction of the BA staff. My seat space was reduced to a mere 12" when the passenger in front of me abruptly reclined his seat all the way back."
Pros: "The flight out of cairo to London was ok , but from London to Boston was quiet annoying being seated facing wall reverse side. For 7 hours"
Cons: "I had with my son 2 business class centered seats at last row no22 ,which were the reverse side of the regular flights facing the wall for 7 hours . The chairs were quiet uncomfortable & couldn't be classified as business class . If i knew this earlier I would have changed to another airline or at least sat economy facing the regular direction ."
Pros: "Loved that entertainment available before take off and ended after taxiing. Liked that drinks and food were free. Would pick BA again"
Cons: "Tried to order kids food on website and couldn't figure out how to do it so the kids got adult food. Perhaps make it easier to order or give kids kids food as default."
Cons: "The seats are too comfortable"
Cons: "My Entertainment device was broken"
Pros: "en transit,une personne handicapee n'est pas bien assuree d'avoir sa chaise roulante a la descente d'avion,c'est ce qui s'etait passe a mon epouse. En transit a Londre j'avais du chercher en vain le service d'accueil en salle transit.Ce fut une mauvaise experience."
Pros: "The crew on the plane"
Cons: "The staff at check in and the gate agents were HORRIFIC!"
Cons: "Seats on 747 recline back way too far. Could not enjoy my flight back from London with the guy in front of me reclined back so far. Was forced to recline my seat all the way back as well if I wanted to watch anything. I guess it's OK if you are on an overnight flight and just want to sleep. Everything else was great though."
Pros: "Crew and Boarding process was seamless"
Pros: "Luckily I got upgraded from an economy seat to a premium economy and what a difference in the experience! I got immediately greeted by a flight attendant and got offered a glass of water (real glass) followed by a warm towel. The seats were wider and had more leg room than in economy and reclined more. The food was delicious and served with real silverware. Complimentary blanket, a pillow, socks, toothpaste, toothbrush, ear plugs and a sleep mask ensured that I got a good few hours of sleep. I was definitely much more rested than I would have been in an economy seat and very grateful for the upgrade!"
Cons: "Since 1st flight was extremely delayed due to stupidity of staff unable to get head count of passengers, the BA system rebooked my 2nd flight which should hve not happened because I made it to my original flight prior to gate closing AND that flight was delayed anyways so I made it in plenty of time to make it yet my seat was taken from me and then boarding started. And I have to state WHY this BA flight was delayed - because they "had problem getting the catering on board" thus missed runway time. Anyways, since I was rebooked I went to my new gate, waited many hours to hve another issue, where they couldnt find my new seat in system and changed, and again flight was delayed this time due to having a flat tire... Common BA, seems your quality dropped 99%."
Cons: "Have been sick for 5 days from plane sickness/vertigo. The turbulence was awful."
Cons: "Too many announcements over the intercom. Better to say 'hi' at the beginning and then only use the intercom to announce turbulence/etc."
Pros: "Food was good, various choices. Red wine was delightful. Entering the airplane was organized. Entertainment choices were excellent. Terminals were nice and clean. My wife had a stuffy nose and the crew provided nasal spray and later checked on her. Flight was delayed at Heathrow but the pilot kept us up to date. Overall Excellent experience."
Cons: "Power Plugs stations at Heathrow Terminal 5 were not working."
Pros: "Great modern plane with plenty of room. Food was great and loved the free wine."
Cons: "Boarding could have been done more efficiently."
Pros: "Seat with greatly appreciated leg room by exit door for which I paid a premium of over $100."
Cons: "Seat by exit door which was uncomfortably cool/cold due to the imperfect seal around the door."
Pros: "Pleasant trip and food was good- fact you even served food was a pleasant surprise"
Pros: "The entertainment selection was good. They provided a lot of options at no additional cost. Some of the crew was pleasant."
Cons: "In all fairness to British airways this was actually "operated by AA" and their customer service leaves much to be desired. Traffic to get into the airport was the worst I've ever seen. When we finally arrived, Although we checked in prior to arrival, we still had to wait in line for over an hour to check in our bags! We told the agents three times our flight was boarding, however, they were almost nasty and would not expedite us. they finally started to call our flight and we were pulled from the line, even then it was very disorganized how we were processed. We had to run through security and the long terminal and along with others in our flight that had been in line, were the last to board as the flight was delayed waiting for us. One of the worst experiences ever. They really need to do something about their check in process as we were not the only ones subjected to these delays. The plane had technical problems landing and had to be towed in but thank God we made it."
Cons: "There should have been some entertainment on this flight- tv or wifi"
Pros: "The staff was wonderful and went out of there way to make me comfortable"
Pros: "I just wanted to say that on all my flights the BA crew has been beyond amazing! On my flight to Paris, one of the crew members who spoke French ( which I do not speak) talked to a couple of French women that were sitting next to me. He got them to show me where the train was, I was very appreciative that he would do that. On my flight back to Charlotte one of the crew made it feel like home, she was so outgoing and helpful, she just seemed like a friend I was hanging out with for the flight."
Pros: "Thank you BA for the upgrade! Service was excellent"
Pros: "the crew, food and service was wonderful"
Cons: "getting to the connecting flight was absolutely horrendous!"
