Airline reviews

Pros: "Having social distance space to take a nap"
Cons: "I sat in the middle seat of the middle of the plane and the staff kept skipping me during meal and drink service because they assumed the other side took care of me. So that was annoying. I had to keep flagging them down."

Pros: "The check-in crew in Chicago was very nice and efficient. The flight crew on-board were not friendly, they were very curt and rushed, and did not go out of their way to be helpful."
Cons: "Friendlier staff during the flight. Better food for breakfast. The connection port for my headphones did not work...I would not have been able to watch movies if I hadn't brought my own single connection head phones."

Pros: "The crew was really nice and very attentive."

Pros: "The aircraft was comfortable and the electronic amenities were decent and needs improvement"

Cons: "Food wasn't that great."

Pros: "Very courteous, friendly, professional flight crew and gate crew."
Cons: "Nothing to mention...very pleased"

Pros: "This was my first experience with Qatar & it was outstanding. Crew members are extremely courteous & helpful. The aircraft seats in economy class were roomy & comfortable. Bathrooms were kept clean throughout the long flight. Food was very good as was the selection of flight entertainment. Can't thi"

Pros: "Regular A330 was substituted for a 787 dreamliner."

Pros: "seat was great"
Cons: "flight attendant should be nicer"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful throughout the flight"
Cons: "The boarding process in Chicago wasn’t great. Zones were not used"

Pros: "The crew were very friendly"
Cons: "I was made to gate check my hand luggage."

Cons: "Took long time to provide food & water."

Pros: "Crew is so helping and attentive , not like american or european carriers . Inflight dining options in economy was like premium economy"
Cons: "Plane a330-300 was little older and outdated in terms of entertainment system , but since this is short journey hence i dont mind"

Pros: "Plenty of room to move around"

Pros: "Q-suits. Very comfortable and private. Great upgrade to the 777. WiFi now available for very reasonable price"
Cons: "Bus transfer to Termial 5 is VERY poorly organized and takes over an hour. This makes it harder to get to Terminal 5 even if you don't have to clear security again. Seats had a bar under the padding at about the position of my hips. Uncomfortable to sleep for several hours"

Cons: "Ord to Doh: People kept window blinds open all through 15 hour flight Flight temperature kept very warm"

Pros: "Good food and good hospitality"

Cons: "The gentleman next to me had broad shoulders, so I spent most of the flight with my body a bit twisted, and eating without being able to move my right arm normally was undesirable. The cabin was kept a bit warm throughout the flight. We had a long wait (30 - 45 minutes after leaving the gate) before takeoff."

Pros: "Video on Demand at each seat in coach. Friendly staff. Also patient staff, what with the languages they have to cover with each flight. The airline goes everywhere so it’s impossible to say what anyone will be speaking."

Cons: "Service is always bad. This time from bag, all electronics have been stolen. It is 200$ worth things have been missing from my baggage."

Pros: "Stewards and Air hostess were great. The food was served well. The flight was kept clean and had a great entertainment system. Overall it was a great experience."

Pros: "B777 Dreamliner is dreamy. Lots of overhead luggage space. Decent leg room (could always be more). Great individual entertainment screen for long transcontinental flights. Flight staff was a mixed international crew, very friendly, unpretentious, polite and just nice compared to other airlines. The planes they use seem very new. Would definitely recommend Qatar Air over Aeroflot any day."
Cons: "Food was decent for airline food but nothing to rave about and as with most airlines uses too much plastic packaging. Although I was pleased that some of the flights used metal flatware, but still too much waste in the industry in my opinion. Also, the headphone jack was not compatible with my headphones. The type used on the 777 is the dual pronged one. I did not have an adapter so had to use the crappy headphones that are provided."

Pros: "Courteous and friendly staff, on the plane and at the airports. Gave advice and directions when asked. Asked about time for food serving and said anytime you want something, come to the galley."
Cons: "A chorus of crying infants..."

Cons: "One restroom was out of service"

Pros: "Great service and crew"

Cons: "I’m a 6’3” in shape man. I selected the bulkhead seats for extra leg room. Great crew, but my shoulders stuck past the seat edge 3” on both sides. Qatar should revise their claim of most room in cabin - this 12 hour flight was one of the roughest I’ve had in a long time comfort wise."

Pros: "Good food. Great staff and service"
Cons: "I wish there was more seating room and unusually long waiting time for toilets."

Pros: "Checkin crew was rude and was not at all respectful"
Cons: "Checkin crew was rude and was not at all respectful"

Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "I have made more than 6 round trips on Qatar Airways for AMD-ORD-AMD in last 18 months and can not be happier!!"

Pros: "Cabin crew including the ground staff were awesome in providing best of its class customer service. Food and entertainment onboard was really good."

Pros: "My flight from Chicago to Doha was late to come in and there was a gate agent waiting for us and two other passengers with a sign when we got off the plane. He told us that our flight had already left but he would get us on the next one. We ended up getting seats on the next flight but then were also given the option to get a temporary visa and explore Doha for the night. We opted for the comped night which included a very nice hotel and $100 in meal vouchers. We absolutely LOVED Doha and the hotel and food was fantastic! I don't think I have ever received better service from an airline or a hotel. We ended up walking around Souq Waquif and the downtown until 1am (we are two young females!) with no issue and just used Uber to get to and from the hotel. Everything was so well laid out for us! No complaints whatsoever!"

Pros: "Leg room was relatively better than the Doha to Atlanta leg."
Cons: "No goodie bags this time"

Pros: "smooth and on time with efficient service."

Pros: "The aircraft from US to Qatar was upgraded and looked new. I love the new on demand video streaming, the touch controls are precise and better than previous version"
Cons: "I wish the airline was a bit more organized with boarding. I saw people with other zones boarding even when they were not called. The air hostess was friendly but I kinda got a feeling that she is doing me a huge favor when I asked for something more."

Pros: "just enough time in Doha between flights. Not too long not too short!"
Cons: "Asian vegetarian food can be of better quality."

Pros: "Enjoyed the food and the service from the crew. Plane was new and relatively new and comfortable."

Cons: "Luggage items are missing."

Pros: "It was excellent."
Cons: "It was excellent."

Cons: "No consistency with hand luggage. My companions and I were held to strict weight limits. Others were getting on with three and four bags."

Pros: "The entertainment options were fantastic! The flight attendants were very cordial and hardworking."
Cons: "I was very pleased with my flight. I really have I complaints."

Pros: "everything was as expected from a world-class in the travel world."
Cons: "In economy class, the seats are not as roomy as I thought and leg room space is not suited for overseas 12+ hours travel comfort."

Pros: "Vegetarian food options"

Cons: "Boarding staff give us wrong advice to make extra money from the passenger. They also pressurized us to decide quickly. our each check in baggage was over weight 1 KG or less than 1 KG due to faulty scale at home. Instead of giving us a choice or advice that you are allowed two more hand bags. They pressurized us to make one baggage over weight from all 7 bags and harassed us to do it quickly because they are closing counter in 20 minutes. That's how they charged me another $65. Also they lied on the counter that your seats are in a row but when i went into the plane our seats were separate. Lesson learned don't trust the person over the counter of Qatar airways."

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "The boarding was unusually long. We stood in line for twenty minutes to board the plane. This was difficult for many. The staff and airlines were unorganized and scattered."

Pros: "Better crew members"
Cons: "Seats and food.. This should be the last travel with Qatar airways."

Cons: "Love flying Delta superb customer service"

Pros: "Boarding was good"
Cons: "Plane smelled like urine"

Cons: "Turn on the lights before landing graduallyb- noone likes bright fast - too nasty;"

Cons: "No ear plugs in my amenity kit??"

Cons: "We had a delay to boarding due to a mechanical issue. THANK YOU for making quick turn around decisions (ie, put us on another plane at another gate) - rather than just piling on delays!"

Pros: "Crew was very congenial, upbeat, and accommodating. As there were several rows with no passengers, the crew offered me a seat in an empty row for my comfort and it was most appreciated"
Cons: "Nothing I can think of."

Pros: "Flight was cancelled - we were moved to an Alaska Air flight. That is why all of the NAs. What was good is that the moved us to another flight in a timely manner. Also, the gate attendant kept everyone informed of what was happening."

Cons: "Late departure in both flight segments and finally missing baggage. Buying KLM and Air France and have odious Delta instead... Too bad to represent America."

Pros: "Reliable - on time - good service - made up time for a late departure"
Cons: "All Good stuff"

Cons: "More leg room and seat width. I don’t like having other passengers pressed against me."

Cons: "Check carefully! Our flights were changed and the first was only ten min difference so didn’t think anything of it but when we went to check in they said we would probably miss our connection. The problem was not the time but they changed GATES were really far apart. Was resolved but kind of a hassl"

Pros: "Bags were waiting on Carousel"
Cons: "Slightly delayed due to incoming flight delayed"

Pros: "Crew was good. As always not enough leg room if you are taller. Resent having to pay extra for more leg room."

Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant spoke like a robot. Could not understand her."

Cons: "staff wasn't very friendly"

Pros: "It was great. The flight attendants are always helpful to us."

Pros: "I paid 60 bucks for an emergency row exit, take get some extra leg room and space so that I would be fresh when I arrived in Munich. However KLM allowed a passenger — who did not pay for the emergency row to sit next to me because he needed the extra space because he was a liarge man, and clearly didn’t fit very well in the economy seats. Thus I I lost all the extra space and actually would of preferred a regular economy seat. that would’ve been more preferential then paying $60 and getting less space than I would’ve had it in a regular economy. I understand the other passengers comfort was important and if that was the case he should’ve paid $60 as well."
Cons: "I did not get a choice of seat for the one and a half hour flight from Amsterdam to Munich and I sat in a middle row for the first time in 20 years."

Pros: "The crew at the airport was very courteous and helpful."
Cons: "No food; not even offered water; I asked a Delta employee about our seats and she was very unprofessional (mind you I'm traveling with kids and my boarding pass said that seats were to be assigned at the gate)."

Pros: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos, please reimburse on the credit card"
Cons: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos of the studio and musicians"

Pros: "On time. Quick and easy flight!"

Pros: "The Delta team was very kind and accommodating to me and my baby and did all they could to make it easier for me."
Cons: "Baggage drop- the line was longer for that than the security clearance! Perhaps have people pay at the kiosk for their baggage so the line moves more quickly."

Pros: "Nothing... no movie, no food, just awful."
Cons: "I decided to cash in some miles for first class, what a waste. Never book first class on delta flying a short route, it’s just not worth the money. The flight attendant had the ATL attitude, if you know what I mean."

Cons: "Expensive food"

Pros: "Agents rerouted me in face of weather problems so that I could make LAX-SYD connection. Well done."
Cons: "Not enough leg room in Economy. Beverage service insanely slow. Had already eaten sandwich by the time it reached me. Have seen this problem before on ATL-LAX, needs attention. Movie choices kinda limited ."

Cons: "Enhanced security procedures are onerous and caused the flight to be delayed 20+ minutes. Too many TSA staff at PLN doing too many things horribly inefficiently. Extra precautions (testing a Ziploc bag of cookies and several chocolate bars for explosive materials) did not make me feel safer or less inconvenienced by the theatrics of security."

Pros: "WiFi and free tv shows"
Cons: "My seat wouldn’t recline"

Pros: "Amazing service!"

Pros: "Air crew was friendly and tried to get people settled as quick as they could to get back on time"
Cons: "plane was a bit late getting in so we left Tampa late fortunately my transfer gate was only a short walk from the arrival gate in Detroit so no issues catching my next flight."

Pros: "Nothing including the captain who was making the boarding announcements at MCI who talked to me like I was stupid"
Cons: "My flight was delayed almost two hours which caused problems for me arriving late to business appointments in New York. My flight areas also late 45 minutes leaving New York. In both cases it was due to a late airline attendant this is increadably unprofessional."

Pros: "The flight was very quick."
Cons: "They didn't serve us water."

Pros: "Quick boarding, nice staff, good entertainment available."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I got to destination. Baggage claim was quick."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to waiting for a tardy flight attendant. Landing felt a little hard. No announcement about baggage carousel prior to disembarking."

Cons: "Flight delayed due to weather and mechanical.. nightmare! Still not sure when I'll get to DCA . I was suppose to get in at 9:30 pm. Flight from atlanta won't leave until 10:20 pm."

Cons: "The hard landing did not inspire confidence."

Cons: "Know that if you buy an E ticket they won't assign you seats until you arrive at the departure gate."

Pros: "Good heads up to turbulence."

Pros: "Love Delta and their attention to customer service. They make you feel overall that they value you as a customer."
Cons: "My seat was broken and when the seat in front of me reclined, it was very uncomfortable. I was just thankful it was an 1.5 hour flight and we didn't get stuck on the runway in NYC like my last two flghts."

Cons: "Didn't stick to zones when boarding customers. Gate agent basically let anyone board during pre boarding and priority boarding, why even offer it if you aren't going to make people adhere to the rules."

Pros: "Nothing. Will not take again."
Cons: "Terrible service, inefficient, cancelled flight and announcement was made 15 mins after boarding time. Could've caught an earlier connecting flight out had the airline handled the situation properly. Instead it chose to risk the lives of passengers by hoping a sick pilot would be well enough to fly, however he fainted. Good thing it was not while he was in midair, I would've been a goner by now."

Cons: "Repeat the message from above.."

Pros: "On a one hour trip no much to say, understandably no food or bererage service. Got me from here to there quickly. thanks You!"
Cons: "What I didn't like was two idiots behind me that talked loudly for the whole flight and it being a late flight it would have been good to catch a nap. Nothing to do with the flight but really they talked for the whole time they were sitting across the aisle from each other."

Pros: "The Delta cookies that were offered as a snack"
Cons: "I don't understand why there's always a lack of space when the flight is full. Were the aircrafts not designed to accommodate a full flight's worth of luggage? anf then when I went to go to my seat, the air stewardess told me to progress down the aisle so someone that they knew could pass through, causing a delay in me getting to my seat as well as losing my overhead luggage space as someone else passing utilized it instead. Now I am in my seat with both my carry on and personal item stowed below. So was I comfortable ? No. Was I upset and annoyed, on top of being tired? Yes. They need a better system."

Pros: "Reassuring that the airport desk staff were keeping an eye on my connection from LAX to Columbus. Turned out it was too tight of a squeeze and I missed the connecting airplane's door closing by a few minutes, despite having RUN through LAX to get there."
Cons: "I am disappointed by the lack of communication among Delta staff when we arrived at LAX. Our turn-around was late coming into SMF, thus late leaving. It would have been very helpful if the gate staff at LAX had advised me to not bother to try to make my connection, or called the next gate to tell them we were running over there. RUNNING. Or at least done something to act like they cared. I am disappointed by the lack of initiative. I understand flights cannot wait, and I would have greatly appreciated being saved the trouble of running to a different terminal and instead taking that time to change my travel plans. They may see travelers struggling like this daily, but to each traveler, a hiccup in travel plans trip is stressful and urgent. I ask Delta staff to please consider that when they come to work. Thank you."

Pros: "Left reasonably on time, arrived a bit early, able to find overhead storage for my roll-on, even boarding in Zone 3"
Cons: "Very tightly packed; minimal comfort for the flight."

Cons: "Headphones suck"

Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I didn't get my luggage with me when I arrived to casablanca as I lived 4 hours away from the casablanca. I have to come back the next day to get my luggage. I was very mad about it.plus I noticed one of my luggage has been damaged so now I have to buy another one because I can t use it. It was disgusting."

Cons: "Lack of seating at departure gate, costumer agent at gate was rude about standing early for boarding (see first comment). Food was not my style my wife enjoyed it."

Pros: "The entertainment was wonderful the staff was nice."
Cons: "CONSTANT ANXIETY!! Our flight to Chicago was delayed. By 2 hours. This normally is not a big deal but it caused us to miss our connecting flight from Munich to Bremen. Then our new flight with a later time to Bremen was cancelled 20 minutes prior to boarding with no more flights to this area. The service center helped us redirect another flight to Hamburg, Germany. We had to fly to Vienna and then to Hamburg. We made it to Vienna after a 40 minute delay however, this delay caused us to miss our connecting flight once again. We were placed on an early flight the next morning to Hamburg which was an easy flight. When we got to luggage in Hamburg we noticed our luggage was missing. Supposably still in Munich. We then missed this flight and missed out on valuable time with friends who live in Germany."

Pros: "Very stable aircraft with attentive staff"

Pros: "Great entertaining system"

Pros: "Service was excellent. Amenities excellent. Food good. Entertainment system very good!"
Cons: "In business class the room for feet was too narrow. One of our seats had the metal framing in middle of my back bothersome."

Cons: "Food could always get improvements"

Pros: "Seats on PE were comfortable, on time, clean flight."
Cons: "The worst crew possible, absolutely no concept of customer service, Last flight on lufthansa....so no more complaints Customers needs training on how to use the LOO."

Pros: "By far the best flying experience in a long time..."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "All good"
Cons: "No bad"

Pros: "The crew was very nice. The hot towelettes before eating was very nice."
Cons: "Squished in the middle of a row. Unable to get up and get things out of my bag. Video screen not working. I had been looking forward to catching up on some movies ( rarely have time for to or movies usually) was disappointed to have no working screen on such a long flight. Did appreciate the effort to supply a gluten free meal, unfortunately someone added whole wheat crackers ( luckily still in wrapper ). The boarding area was mixed with people trying to get to New Jersey at the next gate making it very crowded and confusing, people found themselves in the wrong line."

Cons: "Seat headrest flaps were broken"

Pros: "Everything was great on the flight! The food was good and we had a lot of drinks! The service is really good"

Cons: "Not so friendly crew"

Pros: "Awesome"

Pros: "No problems. As could be expected. Would do again."

Pros: "The flight crew was lovely, and the best part of the entertainment was the on plane cameras which we could watch. Very cool!"
Cons: "Gluten free meal for breakfast was a turkey sandwich?? I would have preferred yogurt"

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "Everything was good, on time and without problems"
Cons: "Chairs might have been more comfortable"

Cons: "We had to cancel our tickets due to passport issue. They could not find acceptable new tickets. Plus additional money to pag was too much"

Pros: "The attendant who did help was fantastic! The ride was smooth."
Cons: "My 12 year-old had a screen that was not working and finally we got an attendant to help us out. But until then, I had attendants who were telling us to try things and then they'd leave and not come back to check up and follow through, which left us constantly trying to find someone...one time our call light was on for 20 minutes before anyone attended to us. In addition, the bathrooms were very dirty. The breakfast was a really bad muffin that I couldn't eat."

Pros: "Overall, United in US gets a two rating. International flights get a four rating."

Cons: "Entertainment system was not working on all seats"

Cons: "This airline charges for everything, and after you pay once, they try to charge you again, and again, and again (four different people tried to charge me 4 different times for my two checked bags). And they lost the record of my payment, so I had to show 4 times the Amex receipt showing that I had paid before. It took 45 minutes and 4 non receptive agents for me to get my luggage checked. British Airways is significantly better."

Cons: "I not get to go my flight, I couldn't get reimbursement"

Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Awoke to find ill man laying on floor in aisle next to me with oxygen. Shortly after... Passenger in seat near man on floor (diabetic but no one tells us anything) needs to lay across four seats with oxygen for heart issues for remainder of trip with staff and doctor on board nearby. Nevdr informed what was happening, never offered to move our seats or move iIl passengers. Glad all turned out ok. Could have given them more privacy and better informed other passengers."

Pros: "Seats are comfortable on Business Class. Service is good"
Cons: "Constant delays specially from CDG! Poor cabin service specially on this flight."

Cons: "More options for gluten free food. Always get the same dish"

Cons: "We had a short delay"

Pros: "Staff were friendly and seats in business were super comfortable."

Cons: "The craft is a bit old. Harsh landing."

Cons: "See above."

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 cue lines per zone are a brilliant idea!"

Pros: "Crew was awesome!!"
Cons: "I paid extra for the seat, but there was a metal box under the seat in front of me that curtailed my ability to stow my carry bag, and my leg room. I am very diappointed that I paid above the normal seat charge as if there was a premium to this seat, but in reality it was a sb par seat."

Pros: "The transfer times were excellent"

Pros: "The crew was very careful"

Pros: "Entertainment"

Pros: "Service and crew are great"
Cons: "Seats"

Pros: "Great service"

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: "It was on time"
Cons: "Hard seats Boarding was 35 min delayed"

Pros: "Everything was fine"

Pros: "Boarding this large plane went relatively quickly and orderly."
Cons: "Seats were tight and got a bit uncomfortable. This was a long flight. Could use a much better cushion."

Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "We were 2h late"

Pros: "It was a wonderful flight and service . Hospitality and welcoming."
Cons: "Nothing everything was amazing ."

Cons: "Horrible Crew..."

Cons: "The flight was late, real late."

Cons: "Booked assistance and got dumped at the gate 3hrs before departure, no English spoken and didn't even ask if my mum needed the bathroom or if we wanted to do some shopping. Just in a rush to get rid of us. Flying only KLM from now."

Pros: "I would like to come on time each trip because I got two late time before with airfrance"

Pros: "Speed, professionalism"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Service was excellent, top of line Food ,some of the best I’ve had on a airline Seats & pillows comfy But we were in La Première! Also the equipment- a380 was terrific"

Pros: "The cheese and the bread"
Cons: "The unprofessional staff during boarding and food serving"

Pros: "Efficient on and off Staff polite and helpful"

Pros: "The crew is great, with their typical slightly humourous and casual French attitude. Great collection of international quality movies."
Cons: "Average and disappointing sitting space. The vegan lacto-ovo meal is disappointing."

Pros: "Chicako Párizs szuper , udvarias személyzet pontos érkezés."
Cons: "."

Pros: "The fact that the plane made it to SFO"
Cons: "Downgrade without notice or consent separating family. Paid full fare for family to travel business class together. AF without our knowledge downgraded one member, separating a mother from her 3 year old daughter. They offered no compensation, no apology, and CDG ground crew was terribly rude. All anyone said was, nothing to be done, now please Leave"

Cons: "We were rebooked, which understandably happens for any number of reasons. However, we were not informed or asked about our preference until our luggage was checked through! The staff especially in Chicago where we began this awful experience couldn't care less about our situation. Then AIr France lost our luggage and provided no help in locating them. We had to rely on folks who had friends working in Zagreb Airport to locate them. Air France is incompetent, insensitive and unprofessional. If you have an important trip avoid Air France - they treat you like captives not customers."

Pros: "I like that they still feed you and provide alcohol for free, even on a 40 min flight (unlike BA)."
Cons: "At one point during the flight I took a video out of my window with my camera, a member of the cabin crew barked at me in French. In bewilderment I asked her in English to repeat herself and she sarcastically repeated what she had said, in French, I asked for her to speak in English (which she had done to me previously on this Paris to London flight) yet again she scolded me in French. I was left absolutely none the wiser and it left a bad taste in my mouth."

Pros: "I like service of AF"

Pros: "Late"
Cons: "Late"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "No entertainment or usb plugsto charge."

Pros: "Friendly crew; comfort; punctuation. Fast boarding"
Cons: "Simple food - very small amounts. No entertainment."

Pros: "It was a fine flight"
Cons: "no specific feedback"

Pros: "Air France is the worst company I have ever flown with. They changed our seats last minute. They where late both flights. Not worth the stress if your layovers are short. Also they took my passport with no explanation of why into another room with out my permission."

Pros: "The food was one of the plane food I've had in a long time although the jamaican veggies weren't great .. The movies and choice of entertainment was amazing"

Pros: "Complimentary entertainment"
Cons: "Major delays"

Pros: "Left on time arrived a bit early"
Cons: "Small plane, tight seats and limited leg room. But the flight is only 26 minutes."

Pros: "Punctuality was outstanding and service onboard was great"
Cons: "For a 11+ long trip it would be suitable to have a modern entertainment system. Aircraft was old and thus the onboard entertainment system: very low resolution screens and aweful sound..."

Pros: "Only the food"
Cons: "I struggled to check in online line not user friendly site And then I went to the airport early and stood in a question for 1h50min to check in and they where difficult with because my bag was exactly 24kg and asked me to remove something I have flown oven over 50times I my life and this would be the firest and last time with air France"

Pros: "The snack/beverage service was unexpected and generous for such a short flight."
Cons: "The airline lost both of my bags and destroyed a twin seat stroller. Dealing with the personnel at the airport was very difficult since I didn't have one of my baggage tickets, they acted like they couldn't help me at all. They have computers and could have cross – checked with my name, but they refused to do so until I told him to try to use the one claim ticket that I did have. They did and the matter was eventually resolved, and I am awaiting my bags now at the place where I am staying."

Pros: "Air France is always a great experience-Sure wish they would restart their nonstop service from Orlando to Paris or partner with a discount carrier to code share service."
Cons: "That i had to go through Air France for my luggage problem which was really not their fault, it was Condor/Thomas Cook who created the problem."

Pros: "The time and the route and seat pitch."
Cons: "Food and crew."

Pros: "Flight took off on time. Boarding was organized."
Cons: "Cabin was cramped. Food quality was so so."

Pros: "Delicious inflight meal and outstanding service!"
Cons: "Please keep up the same standards"

Cons: "Their app wouldn't let me pay for a checked bag early so I was charged almost double the cost!"

Cons: "Initial delay and then take off delay because slot time had not been updated. Our family missed connections. Disaster follow up in terminal!!! So far far we have been over six hours from check in and are still not through immigration. This for an hour flight."

Pros: "The flight was not busy."
Cons: "Seat, Legroom."

Pros: "To be honest, I liked that some of the flight attendants were friendly. Honestly, all but Nicola were nice and friendly. Nicola was the only rude one. So rude that I took note of her name for such a review like this :). I also liked that we got to our destination safely."
Cons: "Flight was delayed almost 3 hours total. The first 45 minutes we were in the airport and they said they were delayed because of an engineering issue which was fine. They then stated that they resolved it and had us board the plane.... ten minutes later the pilot states that the same engineering issue is still being worked on and it'll be about another ten minutes. Well... TWO HOURS after being trapped on the plane and told repeatedly "it'll be another 10-15 minutes" ,we finally took off. The food was subpar, most of the airline staff was polite save for one gentleman at the gate who made a sarcastic comment to me about them trying to board quickly when I couldn't find my passport (after making us wait 45 minutes... then another 2 hours... yeah board quickly for what?). And the flight attendant Nicola was incredibly rude and appeared to condescend to some passengers in various ways. That 3 hour delay ended up costing me my connecting flight and I was booked on an overcrowded flight leaving 4 hours later and that was also delayed almost another hour (surprise!). My first day of vacation, I basically lost my whole first day as I arrived 8 hours after I was meant to because of delays by B.A."

Pros: "Again, I liked that we reached our destination safely."
Cons: "Because of the almost 3 hour delay, almost all of the passengers on the flight missed their connecting flight. Including myself. I was moved to a flight four hours later Finally, the last leg of my flight was again delayed 55 minutes and I ended up on a very, very crowded flight and getting to my destination at almost 5pm instead of 9am.... missing a whole day of activities. What did I get as compensation from British Airways? A 5 pound coupon for 'light refreshment' for an 8 hour inconvenience. Brilliant :|"

Cons: "The other passengers"

Pros: "Getting water offered frequently"

Pros: "We were given a voucher for our meals ."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled after all passenguhaf boarded due to some mechanical problems. Big issue with hotel accommodation."

Pros: "Aircraft ok never fly them"
Cons: "Had to pay for everything no included drinks or pretzels"

Cons: "Entertainment system is very old and the flight is also very old."

Cons: "The staff would not accept cash for the food and drinks, I didn’t have any so had to stay thirsty"

Pros: "Attendants were courteous and the food was good."
Cons: "The entertainment and info system was small and not clear."

Pros: "The Business Class accommodations and staff were excellent. The boarding process was on-time and painless and made a very long trip enjoyable. Despite my poor experience checking luggage, see the dislike comments, there were two employees who did go out of their way at the end of my poor check-in experience to help me. I did not get their names, but their good service was greatly appreciated. The plane crews were also awesome!"
Cons: "1.Outdated website information: I have a small travel guitar that fits in the overhead bins and I always take it with me when I travel, with no issues. It counts as my overhead carry-on. I checked the British Airways website prior to leaving the U.S. and it said small instruments were okay. I was able to board from San Jose, USA, with no issues. However, I was told at Heathrow that no stringed instruments were allowed at all, under no circumstances, ever, no matter the size, even Business Class, even First Class, even if other airports were not enforcing the rules. The rules that ARE NOT LISTED ON YOUR WEBSITE 2. Poor customer service: Due to the above, at Heathrow airport, I had mixed signals everywhere and had to check-in THREE times, twice to oversize, I was sent back and forth all over the place, finally having to go all the way through the airport to pay to have my item boxed. Most of the folks along the way were extremely unpleasant and rude and acted as if it was the craziest thing in the world that I would have a carry-on travel guitar. TRAVEL guitar, small, not full size, not needing any special treatment. Most of the agents, who knew I was struggling with this, did not help me, for example, I had to wait in line all over again, twice! There was one woman that tried to help me and put me to the front of the line on one occasion and the last agent was helpful as well. I did not get any names, which I should have, because at the end, I FINALLY had those two staff members who helped me (see liked comments). I still had to check my box, but the final agent really went out of her way to make me feel better about the experience because she could see that I was given the runaround. But the folks at Oversize and the pre-Security line, were absolutely horrible and rude. No excuse for it at all. None."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cramped seats. Hot and sweaty. Poor food quality. Stingy on beverages"

Pros: "Great value for the money, nicely priced round trip. Very well scheduled flights, good connections, easy to travel."
Cons: "Little legroom on long flights, no wi fi on board overseas flights, even for purchase. No food available on Europe international flights, but for purchase."

Cons: "Service was bad and plane are old traveling with other airlines with business class is way much better then. Ba this was my first and last time traveling with. Ba"

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "You can’t pay to pick a seat"

Pros: "Food and braveries has good"

Pros: "The crew was very considerate of the fact that we couldn’t order special meal, but quite willingly offered as food which is totally the opposite of our the previous flight"

Cons: "Never got on the flight. the delay in the previous flight did not allow me to board this one."

Pros: "Crew was exceptionally friendly."
Cons: "Entertainment units often malfunction. Seats are cramped."

Pros: "I have physical limitations and required assistance stowing overhead luggage and help getting out of seat. Crew were terrific. Wheelchair assistance also great. Travels on my own."

Pros: "The best part of the Stuttgart to London trip is speed of getting through the Stuttgart Airport - no lines and very efficient. And the fact that it is a jet (my preference over turbo-props)."
Cons: "No entertainment connections. Not even free coffee, tea, or soda. Very no frill. Even a small bottle water and hand wipes would have been better than nothing. Not much interaction with crew."

Cons: "Didn't know catering was on sale"

Cons: "The boarding process. It's a bit of a free for all."

Pros: "I love the bins by the side of the Airbus, and for an economy seat there was a good amount of leg room."

Pros: "Crew was nice. First time ever that a stewardess removed my vegiterian tray early while others are eating so I can move in my seat"
Cons: "I was frustrated that I could not choose my seat on my on line check in. I thought at that point one can choose their seat. This happened to me on my way previous flight on BA and nothing was fixed on the app"

Pros: "Very courteous attendants"
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "I loved the on-demand entertainment which starts as soon as you board the plane and continues all the way into landing / taxing to the gate."
Cons: "The system would not allow me to check-in / get my boarding passes 24 hrs prior to barding, which basically left me with a middle seat all the way to Seattle. I considered this a terrible process and didn't get a good explanation why I was blocked from doing my check-in online."

Pros: "Nothing really exceptional"
Cons: "Flying frequently with Emirates and Saudia rises your standards! seats, privacy, food, service on British airways are way behined!"

Pros: "Great service & crew. Food good for aircraft food"
Cons: "Half hour delay but no big deal actually. Could have done with more leg room, but again flight was e cellent price"

Pros: "Arrived 30 minutes late after problem at gate with the Jetway not retracting. Ground staff were pleasant. In-flight staff were friendly and helpful. Food was okay."
Cons: "Having to pay to select your seats is bargain carrier behavior. My family of four had to pay nearly $400 extra to select our seats in advance instead of having them assigned to selecting them the day of the flight. Seats were cramped and not too comfortable. I flew Air France on a previous trip to Europe and it was much more comfortable seating. The in-flight entertainment system kept freezing up and had to be reset multiple times. The touch screen (which is the method of navigation through the system) did not work. On a 5 hour flight that would be an inconvenience - on an 11 hour flight it is a bit more of a problem."

Pros: "Our flight attendant was very helpful when we were faced with dietary restriction issues."
Cons: "We had problems with the food. My son is allergic to tomatoes and mangoes while I am gluten intolerant. The options did not work for us. There was nowhere in the reservation that asked about this. The plane was about 80 degrees for the entire 9 hrs. My clothing was soaked with sweat. The legroom was less than on the domestic flight (AA carrier) which led my son to bother the person in the seat in front of us more. There was a male flight attendant that kept coming by to tell my son to get in his seat, which was not helpful. He is only 3."

Pros: "Flight crew is the most helpful and genuine I've experienced of all carriers. I've had bad experiences with Lufthansa, United, American, and Delta. Everything we asked of BA was taken care of quickly and they truly seemed to care more. They are especially attentive to children. The A320 storage space overhead is huge and seemed to have room to spare with a fully booked flight."
Cons: "Seats are so uncomfortable for people 6 foot tall and above. Why can't they make a seat that adjusts for taller people."

Cons: "Not really friendly. Nothing to drink. My chair was broken so I couldn't really lean back."

Cons: "Bags took forever to arrive. After a long flight and jet lag the last thing you need is to stand around waiting for your bags. This seems to be a problem with this particular airport (ABIA)"

Pros: "Smooth boarding and on time on both flights. Food was decent."
Cons: "(1) Some in-flight entertainment issues which meant it wasn't working for about 30minites. (2) I know the crew have a hard job and have many difficult passengers to deal with. Even so I do find there's a bit too much "attitude" shown by some members of staff. On my flight to London, a mother with a young child wanted hot water and the staff (middle aged British male) was trying to tell her repeatedly she should say "please" when she asks. She was asking politely so this behaviour was rather poor in my view."

Pros: "excellent we got upgraded to premium economy so all was good"

Cons: "Heathrow connection process almost caused me to miss my flight, despite having 2 hours between connections. Security officer at Heathrow was very unprofessional, and took a great pleasure in delaying my processing through the security line. Specifically, I did not remove a PHONE BATTERY CHARGER from my carry-on for screening, so he proceeded to dump out the whole backpack contents, and then purposefully was very slow about putting things back in one by one.As an active duty police officer I understand the need for security and follow all the regulations and instructions to the best of my abilities. However in this case the security officer went out of his way to make the process as slow as he could. Very bad, stressful experience traveling on BA with connection at Heathrow."

Cons: "Whatever the issue was two hours sitting alongside the gate caused issues for everyone onboard the plane and caused us to have to run through the entire airport just to make our connection."

Pros: "The BA flight attendants still know the meaning of great service."

Pros: "Excellent staff"
Cons: "There is nothing to dislike about BA"

Pros: "Nothing to say"
Cons: "Too many Delays Very bad wheelchair service at Heathrow Airport Delayed Baggage Bad food options at American Airlines Flight"

Pros: "AA has domestic US mkt. monopoly - they don't care to improve. People will not stop traveling so take them for suckers!!!"
Cons: "On flight service"

Pros: "Everything. Service with a smile. Top notch friendly flight attendants!"
Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "Once we took off, all went very well!"
Cons: "Disappointed that paperwork issues caused a 2hr delay. the captain kept assuring a take off in "10mins" again and again which got rather annoying after a while!"

Pros: "First time on the huge Airbus. It was fantastic. Romy and comfortable"
Cons: "Reclining of seat back became a bit uncomfortable"
