Pros: "The lunch and dinner menu was excellent"
Cons: "more bathrooms."
Cons: "First experience with Singapore where the crew made a negative impression. As soon as the plane pulled away from the terminal, crew members seemed rushed and frantic, literally running back and forth from Economy Premium to the galley gathering items. Approximately every 7-10 minutes, crew members would be running back and forth next to my seat with heavy foot steps, which would wake me up. I also noticed that certain crew members were shouting at passengers to get their attention instead of lowering themselves to be heard. One flight attendant almost spilled orange juice on me because she turned around too fast trying to serve drinks. I'm not sure if they were short-staffed, or if it was the influence of a certain crew boss, but something was definitely wrong."
Pros: "I will only use Singapore Air for anywhere they fly. They really care about their passangers, 2 checked bags 1 carryon no charge, no airline does that. They constantly feed u & alcoholic beverages all at no extra charge. Flight attendants always have a smile on their flight. In flight entertainment was great, touch screen and remote controller. They supply earbuds, socks, toothbrush and paste."
Cons: "Absolutely no complaints"
Pros: "The crew were excellent"
Cons: "I'm 6'2" and the regular economy seats didn't give me enough to leg room"

Cons: "The plane was very cold. A lot of movies were offered but I couldn't find anything I wanted to watch."
Pros: "Everything was pretty great. Crew is very nice. Food was very good actually. 2 meals with snacks when asked. Hot towels were given a couple of times. Drinks were served and offered throughout the flight. Socks and toothbrush also given. Entertainment was great with a good mix of movies. Chairs were comfy and leg space was ok."
Cons: "I don't think I would complain about the space otherwise except that the person in front of me decided to recline their chair all the way back. It was a tight and fairly uncomfortable ride the rest of the time."
Pros: "I traveled Premium Economy. It was well worth the extra cost over regular Economy. The food was great, the crew was great, the flight was very comfortable."
Pros: "Not much turbulence"
Pros: "The food is good. The service is excellent, always smiling and attentive."
Cons: "Not enough quantity of each type of food. I did not get the cold noodle I want and end up eating sandwiches."
Pros: "The flight attendants are professional, attentive, efficient. One suggestion, they didn't know to offer a nauseous passenger ginger ale. I let them know to give her some and she was very grateful. Also too much food! It's so much better than any other airline but very abundant and I feel bad when I only eat a small portion of the items on each tray. Otherwise great crew, plane, boarding, etc."
Pros: "The seat comes with foot rest attached to the front seat."
Cons: "I asked for decaf coffee and the attendant totally forgot about my request."
Pros: "Excellent service by flight crew. Good selection for entertainment. Flight was enjoyable."
Pros: "Best economy experience I've ever had. The cabin crew is very attentive, constantly coming around with drinks and water refills. They also had decent light snacks in case you were hungry between meals. I also loved the chairback setup and the entertainment unit. If flying economy, Singapore will be my airline of choice."
Cons: "Food was meh. Above average, but still not amazing."
Cons: "On my trip to Japan, the staff was incredibly rude. Horrible commendations. The controls didn't work. And the desert had mold in it."
Pros: "It was safe, great staff and service! Entertainment was great and lots of options in food and beverage!"
Pros: "Great entertainment, good service, clean plane."
Cons: "The lasagna was pretty dry and meh."
Pros: "What did I like??? Um, EVERYTHING! First off I got a great price under $850 round trip to NRT from LAX was a steal! They let you check two large suit cases plus a carry on and a personal item. That all FREE!!! I travel pretty light but it was great to know they don't Nickle and dime you for bags or anything else for that matter. Staff looks amazing and treats you first class even when your in economy. They are so polite and really genuinely want to give you a above and beyond experience. And they over achieve at it! They meals are great and very satisfying. The planes are big and roomy even in economy seats. On our return flight we had a brand new plane which had a sleek touch screen monitor and controller. There mad tons of media available (articles, language games, games, movies, tv shows and more) with USB ports to charge devices on each seat. Plus 10inch personal monitors. Earbuds were included free of charge, aswell as socks toothbrush and tooth paste. They have is two big meals on our direct flight (awesome that they have direct flights). Plus, they offered free snacks too and gave us a full can of soda vs. a small cup. They come through several times offering coffee, tea, water and snacks. All free of charge. This was my first time flying Singapore Airlines and I loved it!!! I wish Everyone was this amazing! Norwegian Airlines was the opposite as far as charging for everything! Had to pay each stop for any luggage ($100 per checked bag). No meals free or charge. They wanted money for everything! And yea a skimpy sandwich was $9.00 :(."
Pros: "The graciousness of sraff, entertainment options, cleanliness of the aircraft. Always willing to make adjustments to accommodate."
Cons: "Its unfortunate that your staff sometimes do not get treated with the respect they deserve from a guest"
Pros: "The staff was amazing and attentive. My surfboards arrived safe and sound... And on time. I will most definitely fly Singapore Airlines again, as often as I can. Thank you."
Pros: "loved the hot towels and the entertainment provided"
Pros: "Flight crew we're attentive and anticipated issues. The flight was smooth and the lavatories were clean and stocked. Love the hot towels at the beginning and end of the flight."
Cons: "Not much to be honest. I suppose if I could say anything it would the seats in economy are a bit cramped, but that's to be expected."
Pros: "I have always enjoyed flying on Singapore Airlines. There were no delays on my connecting flight coming out of Tokyo to Los Angeles. The huge plane was like flying in a small "transportable town.""
Cons: "I had a long connection wait in Tokyo, but that was not too bad since I got a great price on the round trip ticket - less than $700!"
Pros: "The food. The nice crew members. The comfortability and service. The tech and entertainment available."
Pros: "I like that I could check in 2 suitcase and able to choose my sitting when it's available."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was decent."
Cons: "The crew left a lot to be desired. Very disappointed as when I flew last year, the crew was superb. I'm not a demanding flyer. I really hesitate to even call a flight attendant whenever I fly, so I'm not high maintenance. Incident 1: The flight from DPS to Singapore the flight attendant scoffed when I asked for socks saying that economy passenger don't receive socks on this flight. I didn't appreciate the suggestion that my class wasn't worthy of meeting my request. Her response felt condescending. Her continued interaction with me consistently felt short and mildly irritated with me. I didn't understand why. Honestly, I won't fly Singapore again because of this. Flights are not cheap for me. I spend the extra few hundred dollars because of great reviews and a superior experience last year. I will not be spoken to in a condescending way. On the second leg of my travel from Singapore to LAX the flight attendant once again said that I will not be given socks? Why, thought? I'm traveling for over 30 hours. Have things changed? Second, I asked for a second ice-cream. She handed me the ice-cream then took it out my hand and told me she would have to come back to me. The galley that was suppose to have food didn't seem to have anything. Was I missing something. Be fail on many level."
Pros: "The crew was amazing!!"
Pros: "I would definitely fly with Singapore again. Their staff is super attentive, they have lots of options for in-flight entertainment and things generally went smoothly. I didn't sign up for a special allergy meal ahead of time but they were able to accommodate me anyways."
Cons: "The food was overcooked, mushy and tasted old. The seats were small and didn't recline very much. I think these things are kind of normal now on most airlines."
Pros: "The crew was attentive, hard working and pleasant."
Cons: "Like most airlinesuccessful the space was cramped."
Pros: "I loved the entertainment, the kind staff, and the extras they gave out to try to make us as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "My boyfriend is very tall, 6'6. On the flights to and from, even though he was on he aisle side seat, it was very difficult for him to have enough room for his legs, thus making my space that much less. In the future, I think we would benefit from booking either the seat behind us for him that had more leg room, or the seats in front of us that were the first seats of all rows."
Pros: "No baggage charge for surfboards"
Pros: "Very pleasant, staff was always smiling and eager to help."
Pros: "The crew did a great job."
Pros: "I couldn’t eat the chicken for lunch, and I told the crew to change it for me and bring the vegetarian, but nobody brought anything. I was starving until the next meal."
Cons: "Take out the chicken sausage from your menu"
Cons: "My flight got canceled but nobody responded from flyus.com"
Pros: "Response is the same as above"
Pros: "Really good"
Pros: "No WiFi in most of the flight duration"
Pros: "I really appreciated that my bags were not lost"
Pros: "Crew was not this great on my Flight from Doha to IAD. My pre ordered food was not given on time and they missed it. I was given cold food. The flight attendant ignored to offer Drinks and they didn't give the Custom Forms too. I have to ask everything and THE overall service was awful"
Cons: "Flight attendants should care the passengers and provide the best service. Otherwise there is no use paying expensive flight tickets and travelling on Qatar"
Cons: "Just had a hard time finding flight attendants. Every time I went to the back of the plane, half a dozen of them were sitting around and chatting it up. Felt guilty for asking for water. Not the service that I expected from Qatar Airways. All 4 flights were a struggle to get proper service."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable and leg room was pretty decent in economy class when compared to other airlines"
Cons: "Extra leg room, little bigger seats"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed from Hyderabad to Doha and they did not allow us to board the flight as connecting flight from Doha to Dallas would have been left. They did not have seats for next day , the earliest we could go was 2 days later. They did not apologize or compensate for delay."
Pros: "Excellent service with attention to detail"
Cons: "lay-flat seats fairly uncomfortable in the lay-flat position (does not compare to the Q Suite used on newer aircraft) Entertainment system a bit dated, but decent selection"
Pros: "Overall great service!"
Pros: "I liked that the flight was not full and I was able to use the entire row of seats and lie down as straight as possible to get some sleep. The crew was very friendly and allowed us to sleep most of the flight --- I guess they figured that most of the travelers prefer to just sleep and not be disturbed during a 15-hour flight. There was a good selection of movies and shows to watch to pass the time. I liked that there was time to go on the city tour of Doha and that there is a counter at the airport for the city tour."
Cons: "My flight started in Kathmandu and the layover for the connecting flight from Doha to LAX was 12 hours. I hope Qatar can come up with a schedule that will reduce the layover down to less hours while still giving passengers time to go on the city tour, if they want to."
Pros: "Great crew and food served was nice for airline food."
Cons: "You need to bring a snack with you. This is a 16 hour flight and there is a long time between their food services. 2 meals and one snach"
Cons: "TOOO long."
Cons: "i did not like the baggage policy for cabin baggage, where i am not allowed to carry my personal item and a carry on separately."
Pros: "I got an aisle seat. Bathrooms were not bad in terms of cleanliness."
Cons: "Service was ok. I was forgotten to be served items that other passengers were given. Seating ended up being kind of cramped as passenger in front was relaxing a bit too much. Entertainment was ok."
Pros: "Business class was good Cabin crew service was impeccable Vegetarian meals were good Need more choices"
Cons: "Old aircraft Toilets were non functional but the crew kept them clean Entertainment systems were not functioning with remote Need complete overhaul of these Not enjoyable on a long flight"
Pros: "Direct nonstop flight out of Doha, Qatar. It’s a 16 hour flight, so I’d suggest fly business if you can."
Cons: "None to rant about."
Pros: "Great service, friendly and helpful"
Cons: "All entertainment units were off."
Cons: "I did a web checkin for my flight number QR501 Hyderabad to Doha inspire of doing a web checkin I had to wait for 2 hours to get a boarding pass. Reason: There are two queues 1 For people who did a web checkin 2 people who didn’t do a web checkin The Qatar staff at Hyderabad experienced a technical glitch because their only system failed and there was no backup option. There was no apology from any of the staff. No one values the time of the people who chose Qatar making it a very bad experience overall"
Pros: "very nice crew please have good dessert"
Pros: "Good attitude from staff"
Pros: "Very nice arrangements, the seats were comfortable, the food was delicious, and the staff could not have been more hospitable. I would be delighted to fly with Qatar Airways again."
Pros: "crew were all very nice & eager to please. they did keep refreshing the bathrooms which was needed."
Cons: "seat was next to bathrooms which were used constantly & the noise made it difficult to sleep. seat did not recline & seemed to be at an uncomfortable angle. flight was full so nothing could be done. entertainment very out dated as far as movies & you do need them on a 16 hour flight!"
Pros: "Polite staff keen to help"
Cons: "in flight entertainment interface can be improved to be more user friendly."
Cons: "Food is not fresh and seats are not comfortable. Very little leg room."
Cons: "Seats in economy very uncomfortable for long Doha to LAX flight. When person in front of us reclines seat for entire flight, it is almost impossible to get out to stretch legs or go to restroom. At the minimum, crew should ask all passengers to raise seats during meal service as a courtesy to those behind them. This is done on other airlines."
Cons: "No lie flat seats."
Cons: "no one came to help even after asking for assistance"
Cons: "My seat is changed without my approval.thats disgusting"
Pros: "Nt bad"
Cons: "Attendants were skiving at the back"
Pros: "Staff courtesy."
Pros: "Staff were polite and helpful. Flight was smooth and on time. Overall very good considering length of flight and difficulty of accommodating such a large crowd for such a long time."
Cons: "Meal service was very disappointing. 16 hour flight with one meal at the beginning, one meal at end, and a small, rather unappetizing hot pocket like sandwich in between? And snack offerings were ice cream, potato chips, candy bars and a few apples (ran out of apples). Need more healthy options. There needs to be a more full meal/snack offering around the half way mark if you are going to keep people from grumbling."
Cons: "They never gave my baby's stroller when I landed at my destination..i.e. Houston. They said I have to pick it up only at baggage claim..and I had to carry my baby with 2 hand luggages all the way through immigration until I reached baggage claim...very disappointed with this. ..Other airlines handed the baby stroller as soon as you got off from the flight.."
Cons: "Kayak/priceline re-booked my flight for my sister and I from SAA to BA, but failed to completely reissue us tickets. When we checked in for the flight, we had no ticket for the first leg of the flight, but we had tickets for the remaining flights. We immediately called to fix this problem, but due to slow customer service, we weren't issued tickets in time and the flight left without us. We missed all remaining connecting flights and were forced to buy New tickets. Now we have to work with kayak/priceline to get all my money back due to their error. We came back a day later than expected and missed going back to work."
Pros: "Cabin crew were excellent, very nice and accomodating"
Cons: "Check in staff and customer service reps were unprofessional and unhelpful. We had an 8 hour layover on both legs, no access to the lounge or a hotel was provided. I explained we were on our way to our wedding and it would be nice to have some rest. They were rude with the way they told us no, they even suggested we sleep on the floor of the airport. We ended up paying for the lounge, but then so did about 1000 other people, there was no room for us to sit together. My wife's allergy free meal wasn't provided on the first flight. We had to speak to about 5 people to get a meal ticket at the airport and they were very reluctant to give us one. I told them she was hungry and needed to eat. They told us we could take the meal we got with the ticket on board, when we went to use the ticket we had no choice in meal, were given a coke at 6am and weren't allowed to heat up our meal or take it on board. In summary, all the cabin crew on all 4 flights were excellent. Staff at Doha airport were incredibly poor."
Pros: "Qatar airways always seems to handle busy flights and crammed seats calmly, efficiently and on time. It's a long haul - 16+ hours, and if you have to go economy as a 6 foot tall person, their seats recline well, seemingly better than many. You have to plan your long layovers, and they do offer assistance with hotel transfers, but they don't advertise this very clearly - so do your homework before flying!"
Pros: "1. Comfortable. 2. Good crew 3. On time 4. No hiccups."
Cons: "1. Not having wi-fi (major) 2. No news channels in in-flight entertainment 3. No snacks"

Pros: "Every things"
Cons: "when i asked for lunch they said it will be served in 20mins and i got it after 50 mins i was very hungry"

Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Overal very comfortable and good service aboard plane."

Cons: "- Repetitive food - No one turned up when called for assistance. - late service"
Pros: "Not many passengers got to spread out"
Cons: "I have used Kayak many times but I am afraid I may not use it anymore. We booked tickets to India from Boston few months ago. We booked for Emirates. But we got the tickets issued through web jet. With the recent travel ban we wanted to reschedule our tickets. And then the whole problem unravelled. We called kayak to reschedule. Kayak team said its not their responsibility and forwarded me to Web jet. We called emirates directly but they said since we booked tickets via Web jet they will be able to help. So we called Web jet and they charged a hefty 250-300$ extra to what Emirates would have charged for difference in pay. They said its basically the processing fee. We were disappointed as the reason for postponing was not in our hands, and the fact that kayak passed the buck to Web jet in dealing with the issue. If we had bought our tickets directly from Emirates the process would have been very smooth."

Pros: "I like the legroom on Emirates."

Then I said okay, I’ll move if I get a refund and the the flight attendant said that they will. So then I swapped to a middle seat by the attendants directive all the way in the back. After the plane takes off, the flight attendant said that can not refund me the upgrade. I was extremely frustrated and felt discriminated because of my age and size. I demanded to sit back to my original assigned seat but they refused. Not to mention, the flight was delayed!! Unpleasant experience and a rip off."

Pros: "The transfer gates are always further away and there is no staff at the gates to help you. It's always a mad dash to catch your connecting flight. Turkish airport should consider transferring passengers with close connections through a faster line. Also, the security screening between flights doesn't offer any priority for passengers with tight connections"
Cons: "THE bathroom esp at the back of the plan read very dirty. Went floors a d trash that was overflowing."
Cons: "Extra extra and private security passing from Istanbul airport"
Pros: "Surprisingly good food. Great in flight movie selection."
Pros: "All was perfect"
Pros: "I'm happy and will continue to fly Turkish."
Pros: "Finally loved that they had a vegan sandwich for me!"
Cons: "We were supposed to land with an hour and a half till my next flight. We landed and they were already boarding my next flight. It was very slow getting off the plane also. Took forever to pull up to be able to let us unboard."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours before take off."
Cons: "our luggages were left in instanbul so when we arrived in kenya we waited for long before being told our bags were left in instanbul,were had to come next day to collect,stressful experience because we were staying like 80 miles away"

Cons: "Very hot inside the plane"
Pros: "It was great. I told everyone about it."
Pros: "Entertainment is good, many movies and games for kids."
Cons: "Flight attendants are rude and food was terrible! No menu and no selection to choose."
Cons: "You had a very disrespectful, illogical, anal retentive person at the ticket gate just before getting on the shuttle. She would not allow us to wait for the rest of our party of 2 to go on the shuttle to the plane together. They were delayed because of your personal continually bringing other people to cut in line in front of them. There was plenty of time and the shuttle was already full, and we wanted to wait for the next shuttle to board the airplane together. She came out several times from inside of the building shouting at the three of us to get on the shuttle even when the person managing the shuttle flow at the bottom of the stairs was about to let us wait for the next shuttle. What was her problem(?) - she could use a lot more people skills and realize who pays her salary - the customers. She really tarnished the whole image and impression I originally had of TA. Also, there was no way to go to the bathroom without going through a long line of security again at the last gate before the shuttle which did not make sense."
Pros: "Free movies that are current, Free food/drinks/alcohol, Pillow, blanket, eye blinds, slippers, socks. The flight was 12+ hours long, and the ability to watch movies, tv shows, play games, listen to music on the large pad in each seat was pretty amazing. Free over the ear headphones... Very amazing flight"
Cons: "Bathrooms were a bit dirty...but there was a lot of people on the flight and they didn't start dirty."
Cons: "Signage at IST for transit should be better to explain security and passport requirements"
Cons: "I was surprised that my laptop was taken from me without giving any explanation, I think the customer have to be informed about it."
Cons: "My luggage just disappeared on my second leg to Istanbul. 2 email notifications that luggage was not found. Wrong contact phone number at initial report and was not addressed despite report and upload. Also a representative emailed that luggage was erroneously recorded as "delivered" which is not true. I still don't have my luggage after 14 days. No further responses despite extensive documentation and receipts. This is bad!!!"
Pros: "1) The vegan meals were outstanding. 2) The free movies helped a lot! 3) The Cherry Juice is Sooooo good!"
Cons: "I asked to be move from 13D (isle) to 23G (isle) They stuck me in 23E (middle) and insisted it was a middle."
Pros: "Every thing was ok"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled due to weather conditions, that's fine! I never found out till I had to contact the airlines and verify of this piece of information after I heard it from news. Kayak never notified me, nor offered any alternatives!! Poor service!"
Cons: "boarding the treat you like animals"
Cons: "Our flight was LAX > Istanbul > Oman The connection in Istanbul was canceled. The transfer desk was very overwhelmed by the volume of customers. After 3 hours of waiting I finally got someone to get us on a flight to Qatar and then to our final destination Oman. That person then left work before printing the tickets and I had to start all over again. It was a very stressful and tiring ordeal and cost us an entire day of our vacation."
Cons: "The flight from Los angeles was 3 hours late when I got to Instanbul Turkey was nobody there to help us I lost my flight and they lie to us about available flights I ask them to speak to a supervisor they told me the only Supervisor was outside the airport they wanted me to pay $30 for a visa and go through customs was the first time I flew Turkish airways and will be the last one"
Pros: "One stewardess was very helpful, even though she could not speak English."
Cons: "13 1/2 hour flight three rows from the rear of the plane. I feel and smell like a sardine. The food was horrid. I tasted it, but thought best of eating it for fear of food poisoning. It also looked disgusting. Couldn't understand any of the announcements."
Pros: "Quality experience all the way around"

Cons: "Had to stay over two nights. Could not make original connection in Istanbul, stayed over at my expense. Flight overbooked, stayed over at Turkish Airlines expense."
Cons: "Worst airline I have flown, avoid if at all possible. We saved $400 each on a long haul flight from LAX connecting through IST and we should have spent the extra money. Flight attendants are extremely rude, not helpful, the food is terrible, the planes are all old Boeing 777-300 likely purchased second hand and seem to be falling apart on the inside. I saw flight attendants kicking, punching, and body slamming carts and other items to get them to fit in their racks in the kitchen areas, I hate to think what that means for safety of critical items. Just stay away for your safety and sanity"

Pros: "The best airline in the world!"
Pros: "Punctual, clean, comfortable, space....good entraitenment, food ok and lucky enough that seat on my side was empty"
Pros: "Breakfast was tasty"
Cons: "Food choices not good for lunch/ dinner"

Pros: "Food, drinks, pillow, blanket, movie options."
Pros: "Wheel chair was provided. Guidance to check in to the flight."

Connecting flights missed. I reached my final destination by a delay of 24 hrs. Luggage came after 3 days. No wheel chair provided at LHR. I have been suffering from Back pain since several years, underwent surgery. I had to walk a larger distance at LHR to hotel and back to to catch flight. Very horrible journey I had ever experienced."

Pros: "The dinner was surprisingly good! Movie selection was great and the wine was also surprisingly decent."
Cons: "The economy seats are extremely close together. I'm not a large person 5'6") but my knees were practically touching the seat in front of me. There seems to be an inch or 2 more of space on American carriers, which makes quite a difference on a trans-Atlantic flight."
Pros: "Business class seats were good & the business class section was only 50% occupied."
Cons: "My flight attendant Mike had a bad attitude rolling his eyes often. The requests were not outrageous (e.g. I asked for an add'l french roll for dinner because I was hungry) AFAIK, but he constantly had a snobby/snooty demeanor about it. The food was ok, but for the fancy presentation I would have expected better flavor."
Cons: "Total confusion boarding following a three hour delay. Food terrible. The total opposite travel experience flying BA to London. Very disappointing experience returning home on BA"
Pros: "Excellent staff Clean bathrooms"

Pros: "The food and entertainment met our expectations. The crew was attentive and provided good service throughout our flight."
Cons: "I prepaid for 3 seats in the front row of a coach section according to the diagram provided when I paid $75 per seat to reserve them. If I had known we would be placed back a row and not able to be more comfortable I would not have paid that fee. I do feel as though I was scammed for the $225 for reserving the seats."
Pros: "BA crew was amazing--friendly, courteous, helpful. There was always plenty of food--most of it good, and they certainly kept us hydrated with trays of juice. Free everything: wine, movies, music, etc"
Cons: "There was nothing different that could have been done. We had a 5 hour layover after our flight from Shannon. That was ok because we ate, shopped and generally used the time. But we were 1/1/2 hours late taking off, then had to wait to land because we were out of order for the gates. It turned into a 23 hour day."
Pros: "LOVED the hospitality of the crew, the food was great and they feed you a lot on the flight- my guess is to quell the anxieties of flying over the atlantic LOL. Flight to SFO from London was smooth."
Cons: "The seats are intensely uncomfortable. I upgraded to emergency exit this flight and still no room. Also, would be amazing if there was WiFi (even if for parts of the flight and not the entire flight). 11 hours is a long time to listen to same songs on your ipod lol."
Pros: "Airbus 380 - smooth and quiet"
Cons: "nothing it was good"
Pros: "The crew above all were cordial, warm and approachable. Not only to the passengers, but to one another. They all seemed to get along really well with one another and that set the tone for a long but comfortable flight. It's probably one of the most memorable of all my flights b/c the experiences."
Cons: "Better in flight food choices. Maybe I should've purchased a meal. Will definitely order a meal the next time I fly on BA. And maybe a different seat type so that it's more comfortable."
Cons: "Maintenance of toilets"
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "Tiny area for feet at window seat. Overhead compartment smaller than usual."
Pros: "Great flight staff and meals for coach were excellent. The attendants were so nice and responsive"
Pros: "Plan is comfy, food is good."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding in T5 LHR. Passport checks in SFO- even for US citizens- are hopelessly slow."
Pros: "Seats were cushioned and comfortable, entertainment screens were crisp and colorful, restrooms stayed clean and maintained throughout flight."
Pros: "Decent entertainment selections."
Cons: "Food wasn't very good."
Pros: "The entertainment options were great with very good movie selections. The food was not as bad as I thought it'd be."
Cons: "Crew members came off as a bit racist and weren't nice at all. One of the flight attendants spilled liquid from my cup and didn't even apologize. Instead she blamed me for stacking stuff with my cup"
Pros: "Flight was operated by American Airlines"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on a 6 hour flight (you had to use the wifi with your phone) Seats were barely reclining, and in general pretty uncomfortable Food was not complimentar"
