There were quite a few decent choices among the media during the flight."
Cons: "During my flight, my cell phone turned on at some point and downloaded some emails using the airplane's data connection. I will be needlessly charged for this. Once I noted that I was logged on, I tried to see if I could do other stuff before quickly logging off. It seems like it was totally worthless."
Pros: "First leg got cancelled and missed all connections. So frustrating!"

Cons: "One of the crew members at the airport said I had to check my bag but a woman with a bigger bag went on the flight with out having to check her bag. The people flying to Cairo are horrible. Rude, disgusting, disorganized. Took forever to board and disembark the aircraft. If I didn't have to fly to Cairo for work I would never take this flight again in my life. Not much you can do as an airliner though, maybe just warn the tourists about the flight."

Cons: "I had to endure 10 hours sitting next to an obese passenger, who was to big to fit into his seat and had to rest his shoulder and elbow over my seat.

I felt that I could get easily lost between flights and not have time to get to the Frankfurt/Denver flight. I told this to the person at the gate in Zurich, and he immediately arranged for someone to meet me in Frankfurt and take me there. I was met by Maika in Frankfurt and she was just excellent--personable and efficient and really helpful. I'm sorry I couldn't remember the name of the person at the gate in Zurich. He was also great. I wouldn't have done this if I had had more time, but this really made my day (and my flight!) ! Thank you!"

Cons: "If I knew how to recline my seat earlier. I did try several times"

Pros: "We are guessing they either overbooked or they didn't have sufficient passengers on a Tuesday afternoon who's final stop was Glasgow. They rebooked him for 1200 the next day. DFW to MN, St Paul to Schipole, Amsterdam to final destination, Glasgow. So he ends up having to pay for another Lyft back to our apartment in Dallas, then another additional one for the 12 noon flight the next morning. If he didn't have family living in Dallas, he would've incurred a hotel fee too."
Cons: "He was bumped to the next day due to his flight being cancelled. Then re-booked the next day, with an additional layover. Then due to a 32 minute layover that left 3 minutes sooner..."
Pros: "Nice flight, nice crew, and a nice experience."

Cons: "Flight way delayed 3 hours. Staff gave no information and wouldn't help rebook us onto other flights. They gave us food vouchers 2 minutes before we finally boarded, so we couldn't use them.

Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. The individual screens are simply outdated like you basically will damage your eyes looking at them. No chargers for phones."
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."

Pros: "It was a short flight so it was O.K."

Pros: "Great smooth flight staff was pleasant and the overall experience was fantastic."
Pros: "Was able to check in online, very convenient and easy to access site."
Cons: "I didn't go on this flight, unable to leave Seoul (to Beijing) with China Southern."

Pros: "Crew was super nice"
Cons: "Don’t pack people in like sardines! Our seats were so close it was in humane! Also we were in the back of the plane and it was uncomfortably hot! Why are there no individual a/c blowers over each seat!! Because of the heat and the cramped seats had to keep getting up and standing in the back because I was so claustrophobic!! Miserable, miserable, miserable!!!"

After our flight from Madrid to London we were expecting the worse as that flight was dismal. We were pleasantly surprised that this flight was on a clean plane with great amenities."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit sloppy and of course traveling to the US adds an extra layer of crazy to everything with their added security."
Pros: "I liked that the flight was not full, therefore allowing additional room."
Cons: "However food choices and seat room was quite poor. By the time food service was midplane. There was only one food option."
Pros: "Entertainment on board"
Cons: "Late. No other flights to Milan for 12 plus hours. Rerouted to a different airport. Rental car at Mxp so have to taxi back and forth. Missed tours etc. no apparent reason for being late. Weather was fine."
Cons: "BA on line does not always respond"
Pros: "Boarding was easy, the crew was very nice and attentive and came through with tea and snacks regularly, besides the complimentary meals and drinks. Entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Seats, always the seats. The human body is not meant to sit in a tiny cramped, poorly shaped seat for 11 hours."

Pros: "Crew was nice. SFO-LHR was great entertainment."

Cons: "My previous flight was delayed at the start and further in flight so I missed my connection. LHR makes too much use of buses."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Since it was British Air, we would have had to pay $800 total to get seat assignments in advance. Because I refused to pay this exorbitant amount, my wife and I got whatever seats were leftover as assigned by BA's computer. As it was, there computer was all screwed up and we couldn't see our seat assignments or check in online and had to do that at the airport. Others reported getting tangled up with BA's computer system."
Cons: "NO DRINKS OR FOOD WERE FREE. YOU HAD TO PAY FOR WATER! This seems a little ridiculous considering it was almost a 4 hour international flight... I was not pleased. No personal TVs, seats were not great either. Crew was super slow... I found that the majority of British Airways attendants were slow, but there are a few that are efficient."
Pros: "All thing good"

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."
Pros: "There was nothing to like except for the customer service skills of the cabin supervisor who profusely apologised for BA."
Cons: "At the airport, we were told that we did not have seats together as te flight was oversold. Strange as we had a six year old traveling with us. After much discussion, they gave two seats in the economy plus for me and the child but down graded child's mom to economy. We were told that someone from BA will contact us but it has been 10 days and no call or email. BA doesn't care and is just like all other airlines."
Pros: "Comfortable flight. Loved the free movies!"
Cons: "We races to get to the plane from connecting flight that was late getting in. Then we sat on the plane 2+ hours duew to tire needing replaced, then the air was not working so it was terribly hot and stuffy, then the movie system was not working. Wish we could have gotten off plane during delay. Long flight to begin with, sitting for 2 extra hours was not fun. With all that being said, I am glad they took care of the issues and that our safety was first. Once we got in the air, a very good flight!"
Cons: "Checkin staff , who don't appear tombs BA but from another airline working on behalf of BA, apparently punted a problem they knew would take much effort to resolve to the BA agents at Heathrow"
Pros: "The pilot communjcated very well and was able to keep passengers calm during the heavy turbulence."
Cons: "I was only allowed ONE free bag for an international flight??? Totally unheard of. This was my first time flying BA and it will certainly be my last. For a 12hr flight, we were only fed ONCE! And only had very old movies to watch"

Cons: "We reserved for passenger in Business class From Dubai to London to Dubai . But From London to Dubai BA offered passenger Economy class the passenger reserved business class but they put him in Economy and the reason they said the flight is over booked. The passenger has heart problem and knee problem we reserved for him in business class to assure he will get the maximum care but in despite of his health conditions and in despite that he reserved in business class they put him in economy class"
Pros: "plane was very comfortable for long trip"
Cons: "first time flying in awhile was clear on how the airlines co airlines work. i wish told more"
Cons: "Because our flight was late arriving into London, it caused us to miss our connecting flight and needless to say, there was an overwhelming oh well attitude from the Brittash Airways workers. We should have arrived home at 6:50pm but because of all the delays we didn't arrive home until 2am and WITHOUT our luggage. I'm beyond frustrated and exhausted."
Pros: "Not much interaction with crew Felt crammed in"
Cons: "More leg room And don’t slam overheads so hard"

Cons: "Entertainment Sytem was down for 2/3 of the flight."
Cons: "Disappointed that the flight was United. I thought I booked for Lufthansa & therefore expecting to fly Lufthansa. Crew not as friendly. Food not up to par compared to Asian airlines for international flights. Cheese sandwich for lunch? My TV monitor wouldn’t readily reset."
Pros: "It was turbulent without warning"
Pros: "Boarded on time. Smooth boarding. Departed on time. Landed on time."
Cons: "Pay for food, cold on plane entire time, everyone bundled up in blankets, jackets but staff friendly"
Pros: "Easy going all the way"
Cons: "Having to run from one side of Denver International to the complete other side"
Cons: "In both airports I was wheeled to gates and left in the way of people coming and going. I tried to get the attention of airline employees and when I did they told someone else and so I sat for between 40-60 minutes."
Pros: "Comfy roomy seats, free WiFi, free coffee"
Pros: "Short flight so not all questions applied"
Cons: "Too small seats"
Pros: "We landed safely"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours."
Pros: "Each flight I was on, the seats were roomy and comfortable. I don't like to fly, but I have to admit, I felt pretty good on these flights. I get scared when it's bumpy, but I guess that's just life in the air."
Cons: "Not much"
Cons: "Ear phone jack didnt work,paying more every time i travel for less,extra to check just one bag,extra to watch a movie,uncomfortable conditions for 4 hours,extra to eat anything,becoming a joke"
Cons: "They said it was due to weather but my wife flew out of Texas with now issues.... we were to meet up and couldn't till much later, no big deal that I pay for a vacation and have to start it late..."
Pros: "The flight was quick and easy"
Pros: "Boarded quickly and on time!"
Pros: "Left early and arrived early"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed so we were offered to get on an "earlier" flight. The "earlier" flight never left until 40 minutes AFTER our originally scheduled flight."
Pros: "The plane was loaded efficiently The flight took off right on time We arrived even ahead of schedule The attendants were all friendly"
Pros: "Flight left on time! No problem in OHare with transferring planes. Next flight also on time."
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortably"
Pros: "The flight crew were kind and professional"
Cons: "My nonstop flight was cancelled and I was given a replacement flight with a layover. The cancellation was given with short notice and made for a stressful ride to the airport in oreder to make the new flight time.The layover was supposed to be one hour and ended up being 3 hours. This was very disappointing and exhausting flight. The ride was fine once on board"
Cons: "Delayed. Missed connection. Happens too often. Moving my business to southwest."
Pros: "The flight from New Jersey to Michigan is short."
Cons: "My flight in January was delayed because mechanical issues with the plane. My flight in February was delayed because of mechanical issues on the plane. Each time we were delayed about the amount of time the actual flight takes. The bathrooms on both planes smelled like a sewer."
Pros: "Everything went well- on time, easy boarding, friendly crew, etc"
Cons: "3 hour delay, water didn't work in bathroom so there was no washing my hands, bathroom old and dirty, seats old, mismatched and dirty. Essentially a terrible flight."
Pros: "Didn't take me long to rebook the flight when it got cancelled due to weather/pilots timing out"
Cons: "The way the whole thing was handled. I ended up flying on the 5th because of the issues with weather. My general problem was with the way the situation was handled. We shouldn't have boarded the plane on the 4th given the fact that the pilots were probably gonna time out anyway. Instead of wasting time, the protocol should've been to begin rebooking everybody to another flight. Just my two cents"
Pros: "I liked I got notified of the delay."
Cons: "The flight kept getting pushed back and no alternatives were provided. I was able to get on a different flight after sitting at the airport for 6 hours because the delay text came after I was just about to the airport. Very inconveniencing for traveling."
Pros: "Gate to restroom distance."
Cons: "How far I had to travel from one gate to the next."
Cons: "We changed planes and was 5 hours late"
Pros: "Never will fly United again. First flight left early and we missed it.second re-flight arrived late to get us so we arrived too late to get our next flight. Here we are spending all our money in airports and a cheap motel in Chicago in the rain instead of being in Florida with our family."
Pros: "Great flight."
Cons: "Scheduled for 7:20pm, but delayed until 8:20pm. Very disorganized way of handling carry on baggage. Not worth the $208 I paid for this one way flight."
Cons: "I purchase the economy plus seat, hoping to get some sleep. But, the seat did not recline at all! It was so uncomfortable that I could not rest. This was not worth the extra $57 I paid."
Cons: "Flights were all delayed or cancelled"
Pros: "This is not a long flight (Grand Rapids, MI to Newark, NJ: just under 2 hours). There was a minor delay for departure of 20 minutes that Kayak and United kept us well aware of. The Grand Rapids, Ml airport is one of my new favorites -it's small, friendly, comfortable and quick and easy to navigate."
Cons: "Left about 15 minutes late. But we didn't miss any connections so everything turned out okay."
Pros: "That trip was great to Housto!"
Pros: "Nowadays the gate closes 10 minutes before takeoff which really helps get the plane off on time as we can make connections. Some may not know this and find it frustrating. As a regular traveler I appreciate the move."
Pros: "Fast flight, on-time"
Cons: "Old plane, uncomfortable seats, really dirty looking bathroom"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess, another oversold United flight. I was forced to gate check my carry-on by the time my group boarded, though there was plenty of overhead space once I was on the plane."
Cons: "I cancelled it and it appears it didn't really cancel"
Cons: "Our plane was delayed leaving Grand Rapids. Once in Houston there was no gate available causing another 10 minute delay. All bags were required to be checked plane side so once we finally got off the plane it took another 10 minutes to get our bags. Many passengers had tight connections and had to rush to their next flight. My connection was already tight as it was - and I had to go to a completely different terminal very far from where I was to catch it. Five of us were on that flight connecting to San Diego. We finally made it to the gate. The plane was still there but the door was closed so we were not allowed to board. It was the last flight out so we were stranded in Houston overnight. This caused me to miss a very important medical appointment this morning - and to have to cancel client sessions leading to a significant loss of income."
Pros: "United always has the cleanest planes I've been on the offer a lot for what they have."
Cons: "Seats are a little tight. I'm a 6'4" male knees always in the back of a seat makes for an uncomfortable ride. However the seats are the most comfortable one been on in a nation wide travel."
