Pros: "The boarding process was simple, food was ok."
Cons: "What a terrible flight. There was absolutely no leg room. I'm 180cm but I imagine Qatar airlines have taller passengers. I understand they are trying to squeeze as much money out of their flights as possible but it was to the point of such severe discomfort that my right knee still hurts half a week later. The reason that it hurts so much is that there was a post through the right half of the leg room under my seat, which was already super limited to begin with. DO NOT GET A WINDOW SEAT, WHATEVER YOU DO. It was a 7 hour flight and I was SO MUCH PAIN. Horrific. The flight staff was rude. I will never fly Qatar again under ANY circumstances. I would rather travel months by boat, or even walk for years on end then go through that 7 hour experience. Qatar's cheapness lost them a customer!"

Pros: "Movie selection was great!"

Pros: "The flight was calm"

Cons: "as always not enough room in the seats"

Pros: "the upgraded seats with the new headrests were great. the pilots & crew did a great job despite the more-than-average turbulence."
Cons: "lack of any entertainment options whatsoever (not necessary but always a nice-to-have). More importantly, the fact that I checked-in with seat 14 and ended-up, seemingly randomly, in seat 28 (the back of the plane) when I had SPECIFICALLY selected a seat in the FRONT section of the plane. That was particularly annoying, especially since the optics of the situation were such that I used miles to purchase the flight and got "screwed-over" with respect to my seat selection as if my ticket held less weight than other passengers..."

Cons: "I forgot my wired ear phone so I purchased the earphone. I knew i shouldn't expected anything for $2 but really I couldn't hear anything at all to watch the movie. It's used to be free, now even paid the quality of the stuff is really suck."

Cons: "I ordered a special asian vegetarian meal and it was just plain horrible. I had to settle for the cookie. It's nice that they serve a complimentary meal on the red eye flight but the quality of the food was bad. Entertainment options were also limited although they had some recent box office entries from last year. The leg room also wasn't great but that's expected in economy I guess."

Will not be using this airline for a long time ( they lost our luggage for 4 da"

Pros: "Crew members went out of their way to ensure the passengers’ comfort."
Cons: "Boarding process in Frankfurt was very confusing and haphazard. Some passengers had been pre-checked, others had not been- which delayed the boarding. Flight was an hour late. Baggage claim in Delhi was a mess- had to wait for more than hour to get one checked bag."

Pros: "Crew was excellent and many passengers were as well. Really commend cabin crew for their excellent work on a full flight."
Cons: "A bit cramped and I really didn't like the people in front of me who reclined in coach. The cabin crew got them to put up their seats for the food service, but otherwise there was nothing they could do. Can't we just tell people that coach doesn't have the room to recline. Also, you guys are German, can't we at least board by rows?"

One just said that all carry on should be able to under the seat."

Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."

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.

Within a few hours (and thanks to airline assistance) we were able to locate the suitcase. Even then it took them two days to bring it to us, two precious days off our planned vacation (7 days) At the end of the shortened vacation, we got to the chek in, and told that since the ticket I had purchased form them two months earlier was too cheap ... and since the flight was Over booked, they would take me off the plane if all the passengers would arrive. It's unnecessary to describe what I felt until the plane took off. They apologize constantly, but do nothing practical. a bae company. no me nor my freinds/family will go with KLM"

Pros: "Wonderful"

Pros: "The service, entertainment, food, the crew, the aircraft were excellent."
Cons: "They put us in a Transavia plane."

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."
Cons: "Quite bummed the plane didn't have wifi / USB"

Cons: "Flight delayed ... Myself and three other colleagues didn't have our luggage show up from KLM flight from Amsterdam to Brussels...even though all of our luggage was labeled "priority". Once in customer service line, we looked and saw that many of the other passengers on our flight also never received their luggage. We estimated that 20-25% of the people on that flight did not receive their luggage as they were in line with us for the same problem. Hard to understand how so many pieces of luggage could have been overlooked and not loaded on our flight. Obviously there is a huge gap in their quality system to ensure mistakes like this are prevented."

Cons: "Because of slow boarding process flight was delayed by 15 minutes. I had short connection in Amsterdam."

Pros: "Fast boarding, early arrival"
Cons: "If I weren't super hungover"

Cons: "Sorry the attitude to help people after a cancelled flight is sucks,"

Pros: "The crew was good, very helpful."
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable at all. I’m 6.0 and 150lb so not very big but my shoulders were already above the head rest. Also leg space was very poor. This was an American Airlines flight by the way. 777-300 airplane. I’ve had better flying experience before in the Same type of plane"

Cons: "Flight left late from London."

Cons: "Delays in the food service occurred because the credit card machine stopped working. Rather than stop the purchase food options they continued which meant they could only reach row 16 by the time our flight began its descent. Since were in row 19, we were not offered any food or water, during lunch."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Crews service"

Pros: "The crew, the seats, the food, the overall experiencience were amazing"
Cons: "Better headphones"

Pros: "The crew was professional. Plenty of space to store my carry on bag overhead. I also like the safety video at the beginning, featuring actors and comedians."
Cons: "I have no complaints about this flight."

Cons: "No food served on this flight."

Pros: "On time depature"
Cons: "Little amount of snacks available Small quantity of food for the meal"

Pros: "crew was lovely"
Cons: "older plane - air conditioning was dripping on one of our seats"

Pros: "Felt like a disorganized mess! I don’t understand how this is still in business. Water was for sale on the flight, not for free. Water!! It’s a basic amenity. Exit row was exactly the same leg space as the rest of the aircraft. So why did I pay extra?"
Cons: "Delays! Delays! Delays!!"

Pros: "Snacks or water had to be purchased No in flight entertainment Crew not so nice"

Pros: "Crew was great. Accommodating and welcoming."
Cons: "Food quality could have been better. Snack was very poor before landing."

Pros: "Boarding went fast, staff was friendly, security information on screen, so it was easy to follow."
Cons: "We had a 30 minute delay, didn’t get any information about why leaving late and why flying in circles over London... would understand if I would’ve known zhe reason."

Pros: "Got there safely"
Cons: "Long lines to board. Take a bus from the terminal to the plane. Walk up a lot of stairs to get on the plane. No free bottled water or soft drinks. Ten minutes before landing they gave me tap water."

Pros: "The staff was nice"
Cons: "You've got to pay for a can of ginger ale now? When did British Airways become a budget airline? What a joke. The plain is an old outfitting with flip down screens and whatnot. It's not like we need these things for shorter fights, but why would anyone pay more to fly a nicer airline if you're treated like you're on Ryan Air?"

Pros: "Speedy and friendly service from crew"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Not their fault; French traffic control strike"

Pros: "Regret I am overwhelmed with catch-up. Number one was the price of the flight. Food was plentiful but average (less than that when compared with what we had just experienced in Italy), and service by phone was phenomenal, given the special consideration of seating and menu details accorded to me."

Pros: "on time, safe, not crowded,"
Cons: "no water or anything without paying extra. blase crew."

Pros: "Easy flight sequence to get from Seattle to BCN"
Cons: "Could use better entertainment selection"

Cons: "Luggage did not make it to Paris pit on next flight which in turn was also delayed."

Pros: "Nothing about wheelchairs"
Cons: "When arrived they don't take wheelchairs"

Pros: "Good food and service once on flight and again fixed connections before landing"
Cons: "Terrible boarding experience. Rude gate workers and almost two hour delay because of it"

Cons: "The chair in front of mine was broken or worn out so that it declined alarmingly far. It felt like the gentleman in front me had his head in my lap. My tray table was also broken so that it listed dangerously and I had to prop it on my arm rest."

Pros: "Did not watch entertainment. Tried to nap."
Cons: "Blankets felt very worn and crusty."

Cons: "Snacks were good!"

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: "It is difficult to get in and out of chair. I wish the chair handle would be moved up . Every time I needed to go to bathroom , I hurt myself."

Pros: "That food and drinks, including wine, were served for free. That the on board entertainment had lots of options that were well rated, recent, and were all free. The touchscreen was the best I've seen so far on airlines"
Cons: "The flight map was not working and the attendant didn't know what we were flying over (probably Greenland)."

Pros: "The usual competent BA experience."
Cons: "The main meal was a mess. They ran out of the pasta option way too early. Then the tray was covered in useless extras - such as salad dressing (unlabelled, but that's what it looked like) and lime pickle, when the starter was a potato salad that already had a sauce and the main was pasta with tomato sauce and broccoli. They should cut out the extras and spend the savings on better starters and mains."

Pros: "Timeliness"
Cons: "Food and service could be better."

Pros: "Not enough room in the seating area"

Pros: "British Airways lounges at Newark and London were good places to relax and have decent food and drinks selections."
Cons: "British Airways in-air entertainment and food options in aconomy leave much to be desired."

Cons: "They don't even give you water without charge"

Pros: "Very pleasant and solicitous British cabin crew."
Cons: "Delayed departure."

Cons: "I asked for coffee. Paid 4 pounds for it, it was AWFUL. not brewed, no taste, bitter, no cream available to add to it. If you charge such prizes, you better offer decent coffee. I can get late or capuchino at Starbucks for less and far better quality."

Pros: "I was late to the flight due to an accident and I have got a new flight quite easily"
Cons: "I have got a seat that can take t back, no one told me in advanced this is the situation and the flight attendent keeped telling me why it can't be done instead of looking for a solutioni"

Pros: "Better to avoid BA. At least they should serve some water. Next time I'll use some other airlines to get to London."

Pros: "Food was great All flights were on time Very clean and comfortable"

Cons: "Wish water had been available For free London to Framkfurt"

Cons: "Nothing that could be controlled just a lot of turbulence. It would be nice for the pilot to reassure passengers"

Pros: "Arriving safely."
Cons: "The temperature was annoyingly hot on board."

Pros: "Full flight but I had two seats and a delightful Ghanaian seat mate"
Cons: "Being dumped in Phillie with canceled E.g. To Burlington Vt"

Pros: "older plane, so seats were like southwest's leather seats"
Cons: "Crew was very ignorant, only paid attention to those flashing their credit cards for purchases. didn't even offer water, so had to contact the customer service rep onboard who gave us water rather than the air hostess"

Pros: "We did land OK but JFK was snowed in and this probably caused the many problems we encountered. Iq always have bad luck flying in and out of that airport so I don't completely hold BA accountable. Staff we polite and efficient."
Cons: "We were stuck in the plane for an hour and a half after landing at JFK. On the ground they ran the engines so loudly my husband got a terrible headache. We mentioned the noise problem but were ignored. Once allowed to debark we were crammed into a long cold hall and waited another 1/2 hour before moving towards immigration clearance. To top it off the baggage conveyer system was broken and we waited another 45 minutes before they shut the building down. So we left with no luggage exhausted. One piece of luggage was left back in London. Not pleasant at all. We did get our luggage returned 3 days later. That was good."

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: "British Airlines Club - staff were helpful and friendly!"
Cons: "Booked last minute due to a missed connection. As soon as I did and went to counter I discovered the flight was delayed almost three hours. It should have been noted as delayed prior to purchase."

Cons: "Boarding was a nightmare. Staff were rude and did not communicate well. I am a million miler with Umited & I wished I had flown with them!!"
