I've noticed it declining in quality over the past year. Bread is always cold and hard and vegetables are sometimes tasteless. I also never get good dessert :( luckily, the cabin crew giving out food still had some other food I could eat so I just gave back my special meal which was cold and unappetizing."

Cons: "Boarding was hodge-podge. Seats are way too close together for a long haul...person's tray in front of me was in my face the entire trip and she didn't bother inclining throughout so had to eat my meals like a contortionist. Cramming more seats into a finite space seems to be what all airlines are doing these days. This of us whom are above average in height are forced to insure a more painful and uncomfortable flight as a result."

Cons: "This was also a good flight it was just a bit more cramped than the Qatar Flight Los Angeles to Doha so I preferred that flight over the Doha to Singapore"

Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Food, drinks and entertainment were good."
Cons: "Before my flight I choosed my seat online and it was aisle seat. But when I checked in at airport they changed my seat to middle seat. I am not sure why there is a option to choose my seat if they are not going to honor it. Also seats were very little and there is not much room. I am only 5.4 and 140 pound. So not sure how big people can handle seating there for 10 hours."
Pros: "Too many security checkpoints were annoying, but they were good when you follow the rules of what to carry and what not to carry. I also liked that this much security doesn’t allow easy access to the US."

Pros: "Large screen tv and new mivies"
Pros: "Food, service, entertainment, cleanness of the plane"
Cons: "Too many announcements in the beginning of the flight."
Cons: "Boarding process chaotic due to conflicting flow of movement in the aisle. People don't like to step aside to let others pass. Additionally some of carry on luggage was oversized and should have been checked into the cargo hold. When flight landed in Nouakchott an announcement should have been made so that the Dakar passengers allowed the NKC ones to deplane, AND the NKC passengers should have been advised to have their boarding passes out for inspection. This caused a backlog in the jetbridge. AND no announcement regarding local time."
Pros: "My flight from Budapest to Istanbul was delayed by weather and heavy flight traffic in Istanbul. At booking time, I had only a 1 hour layover, which I commonly NEVER schedule. Upon arrival at the IST terminal gate, I exited quickly and was met at the end of the runway by a Turkish Airlines customer service rep, permitting me to transit directly to the transit lounge, rather than sending me back through security yet again. As she looked at my boarding pass for the next flight, she knew who I was and she sent me directly to the proper gate for my next flight. Turkish Airlines, you ROCK! (My bag even made the connection!)"
Cons: "overall good experience"
Cons: "The lost 3 of my bags"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and supportive, snack was good"

Cons: "After ordering Asian vegetarian meal, I got pasta. That was disappointing"
Pros: "Everything was good except boarding. Boarding should be from a proper gate rather than from a bus"
Cons: "The fact that I missed my connection flight in Thailand because of a two hour delay. I was never informed why there was so much of a delay and in turn I had to pay triple of what I payed before for my flight. Very disappointed. Won't be flying this airline again. Service was rude. They should be more responsible when it comes to timing. We were on the flight waiting for two hours!!!"
Pros: "Great entertainment, crew, food, and organization. This was my first flight on Turkish Airlines and I would definitely fly this airline again."
Cons: "Clearing security was a nightmare. So many layers and lines to stay in, and the area wasn't air conditioned. Unfortunately, a handful of the passengers got "ripe" before the 10 hour flight to Chicago. Ugh."
Cons: "They lost one of our bags."
Pros: "All of it best flying experience to date"
Pros: "Everyone was friendly and helpful, even though we are English speakers. Check-in was quick and efficient. Cabin crew was constantly in motion with food, drinks and refills.

Pros: "Amazing food! Very nice crew and excellent flight."
Pros: "Staff serving onboard were very nice and food is ok - selection of movies were good"
Cons: "On two TK flights in a row today the outlets the TK handed out headphones were sub-quality - and I basically had to sit and manually keep them in place during both journeys to be able to hear something. Truly annoying! Also - for some reason service was done by only one person per aisle which meant I had to wait really long time before getting both food and drinks."
Pros: "Great flight overall. Comfortable, nice amenities. Staff was polite and helpful."
Cons: "Did not like the carry on being based on weight instead of size. Also did not like that there was not a self check in kiosk."

Cons: "you can't recline your seat a bit backwards to get a nap. booked luggage is treated with absolute contempt."
Pros: "The Knowledge that I would never fly Turkish airline again"

Pros: "More value for the cost of the ticket"
Cons: "Room to improve food quality. Basmati rice is the airline industry standard and Turkish airlines should follow UTI."
Cons: "Too many seats. Very uncomfortable on a long trip."
Pros: "The service was okay."
Cons: "There was a woman sitting behind me with a loud child that kept kicking my chair."
Pros: "Turkish was the only airline I've flown that actually did not give the impression of nickle and diming but really made clear and concerted and well executed efforts to exceed expectations on all fronts, even food and drink. A huge accomplishment. They really put most of their competitors to shame."
Cons: "Only issue was that the videos kept freezing up, though they did remedy that problem. And I wish they had a foreign hub further to the west. Much as I loved the airline, I would only fly them again to Turkey or further east. It took me 22 hours door to door from Venice to Portland, Maine, when it shouldn't have been much more than half that. It's just too Far East to be a very practical option for visiting Western Europe from the US."
Pros: "See above. The food was excellent"
Cons: "Our seats did not recline"
Pros: "Good, entairtenment, service"
Cons: "These was a delay on my first flight, and i almost lost my connecting flight. The had us running like crazy on instabul airport, and the employee didnt even know which gate we were supposed to go. This is the second time i had the same issue with turkish. The seats were very narrow and it was impossible to fit on there. Very uncomfortable"
Pros: "The sevicewas great! i liked their food. It was very fresh and testy. The tv screen had a lots of great movies. I enjoyed my flight. Thanks"
Cons: "I didn't book any flight. Don't know why you think i did. I hope the actual person who booked had a nice uneventful travel experience."
Pros: "Crew were very nice and professional."
Cons: "The flight from Istanbul to TLV was scary. The Pilot hit the brakes half in the middle of the take off due to a "technical error". It was very scary, even the flight attendant was in panic. Plus, the food was uneatable. Hope to never fly with Turkish Air again."
Pros: "flight was comfortable and nice"
Cons: "the food offered ...disgusting ..........the airline knows this but continues to serve the customers horrible quality food ."
Cons: "Staff was a bit rude"
Pros: "Crew nice, seats ok"
Cons: "Dirty! in seat pockets had trash on two flight in both my seat and wives seat. The tvs in the seats were filthy, hazy, smudgy. Just didn't look like they clean well in between flights"
Cons: "No WiFi despite paying. No Kosher food despite ordering."
Cons: "Seats not comfortable for long haul, better care"
Pros: "Lufthansa doesn’t let the passenger choose their seat; it instead assigns their seat for them!"
Cons: "Too many last minute gate changes for boarding are confusing which costs extra time for the passenger, especially for connecting flights."
Cons: "There was a very loud group teenagers/young adults that kept getting up visiting each other and hitting on other customers seats. After 7 hours of the crew nor anyone else saying anything to them I called the crew & asked them to have them quiet down and sit down. The staff should’ve handled better"

Cons: "The plane was hot, muggy, and had little airflow with no user movable nozzles. Lots of people sweating for 6+hours."
Pros: "Half empty plane"
Cons: "Food n movies"
Pros: "The crew was attentive."
Cons: "Boarding crew in EWR insisted that my small carry on had to be checked in. MANY passengers were able to bring on board luggage that was larger and clearly heavier. I don’t understand why I was one of the exceedingly few passengers pulled out of the queue to have luggage checked in. Food was sad."
Pros: "it’s wasnt a full flight, so that was nice"
Cons: "bus to the airplane was too warm and had to wait 10 minutes before actually letting us off"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "We waited in the plane on the tarmac for 3-1/2 hours waiting for the plane to be de-iced before take-off. I understand that there is nothing Lufthansa can do about the weather, but they (or the Munich airport) need to have more de-icing machines. It is ridiculous to have to wait that long."
Pros: "Crew did their best to make us happy."
Cons: "I felt duped by Lufthansa by the so called business class, where my legs barely fit, there was no entertainment, and there was no real difference at all from economy except for not having a person in the middle seat. It was equivalent to economy plus at best, but charged at business rate."
Cons: "There was a very unruly child on the flight. The attendants did their best to deal with him but it was quite chaotic for a long flught"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient. Plane was newer (and cleaner)."

Pros: "The food was decent but poorly presented with very limited options for those with food allergies, particularly to dairy."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and very stiff, neither the parents or staff made an effort to give guests a break from the constantly screaming babies. I had two small children kicking the back f my seat for the duration of our six and half hour flight. My largest complaint is that I was unable to sleep a wink on the overnight flight due to the excessive heat in the plane. In my experience decent airlines provide their guests with air conditioning so that they can breathe and rest easy. I was absolutely miserable thanks to the heat."
Cons: "Boarding process was longer than expected. Seat assigment from check in was not honored at the gate. FA asked me to switch seat only to favor passenger from Germany."
Cons: "Poor customer service (I asked for a glass of water, they were almost annoyed and it took 20 minutes), delayed flight, missed luggage. Never again."

Cons: "My tv did not work all way from M to T,complain 3 times, was promised to reset tv. Never get it."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "only negative was whining child whose parents did not seem to care if whole plane was disrupted. Had tv available so watched olympics most of way home. Also, beer or wine with dinner"

Cons: "Seats and spaces seemed a tad smaller and less comfortable than other airlines"
Pros: "Yes, crew was excellent"
Cons: "I was charged 70 Euros per bag for two bags a total of 140,00 Euros which is more than the airfare per person for flying one way from Tallinn, Estonia to Stuttgart, Germany. I had no other option except cancel the trip which was not an option and so I paid. There should be some fairness! Rampur"
Cons: "Momondo sold me a so called 'go light' ticket (not disclosed anywhere though) meaning that only 1pc of carry on was allowed! No checked bags unless purchased. Could not see on the price of my ticket that this was the type of new generation low quality tickets. So tired of momondo."
Pros: "food wqs decent entertainment options were also good."
Cons: "nothing to complain about except leg space"
Pros: "Business class lounge excellent. People who helped with the wheelchair were excellent."
Cons: "In a wheelchair. Check in was terrible and rude. The fact that SAS did not allow us to bring my electric chair directly to the gate was absurd (only airline in the world that did that). The fact that it was not at the gate when we arrived in Newark surprised even the SAS Gate agents. Had to go to baggage and collect it in oversize baggage. Will not fly SAS again until that policy has changed."
Pros: "Legroom was sufficient on this leg because I paid an extra $80 for an exit row."
Cons: "Having to pay extra for normal legroom"

Pros: "Seats were very comfortable for economy. Crew was pleasant, attentive and efficient. Good seatback entertainment system."

Cons: "Flight delayed, had to take 2 other flights to get to the final destination. Arrived at 9pm instead of 2pm."
Pros: "Great flight, friendly crew, good food, entertainment was ok"
Cons: "Cramped with no storage, ticket was stand-by took some time to convert to boarding pass and get seating to enter the plane as one of the last people,"
Cons: "website made it impossible to pay for baggage ahead pf time...so therefore they could and did rob us blind once we got to the airport the day of"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable"
Cons: "I ordered vegetarian from their transfer office at the Copenhagen airport. Days before the return flight yet to chicago they had no record of my vegetarian meal The same transfer desk told me there were no morning flights to amsterdam the next day so they booked me 930pm next day, I found hour later a flight on Dad leaving 6am next morning, had to buy own toclet"

Pros: "A female pilot! Nice crew. Clean bathroom."

Cons: "Charged for checked bag on international flight. Late departure. Only food was a small cup of water on a 3+ hour, lunch time flight -- not even a bag of pretzels. Late arrival with short connection and flight attendant directed us to wrong gate. When we reached final destination, only one of two checked bags showed up."
Pros: "On time...and the staff was great"
Cons: "Seat cushions"
Cons: "The SAS Supervisor at the gate permitted all preferred-level economy class ticketed passengers to board irrespective of the amount of their carry-on items - in some cases as many as three different items and many over-sized as per the measuring box located at the gate walkway, before conducting a bag-by-bag weight check on all the remaining economy ticketed passengers. Any carry-on item over 8 kgs was refused access to the airplane, and had to be unpacked at the gate in full view of other passengers to remove all electronic devices or breakable items, prior to being left with the gate agent to be placed on the plane as checked luggage. This procedure was conducted in an officious and highly non-customer friendly way, and was embarrassing to those passengers who had to "strip down" their single bag, in particular for female passengers who had overnight clothing and toiletries. A more practical and customer appropriate approach should replace such a draconian procedure."
Cons: "We couldn't check in online because we had an infant in arms. So we tried to check in there. There were 3 different terrible queues. One to use the machines, one to check bags and another for special situations. We tried the machines, didn't work. A rep told us to go to the special situations line. There was a rep there that was trying to prevent people to getting into the line because it was sooo long (1+ hr). So we tied the machines again. Didn't work. So we convinced the guy to let us in the special line. It was nuts. We waited as our flight got closer and closer. Right when it looked like we might make the flight, one of the TWO reps left. When we finally made it, they said we wouldn't make the flight. We rebooked and had to pay extra. WORST travel experience ever."
Pros: "I am pleased we landed."
Cons: "entertainment system did not function properly. when it did, movie selection was terrible. very mediocre flight experience by mediocre, government funded airline that doesn't really need to compete for business."
Pros: "Great movies. Lcd Screen is awesome"
Cons: "Somewhat unfriendly crew"
Pros: "I liked the flight staff were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour and I almost missed my flight to Lubbock from Chicago. I'm also waiting on my luggage that got left behind due to the time of me catching my next flight. My connection flight was with United Airlines."
Cons: "When trying to board in Copenhagen there were some mishaps, but these were mainly caused by people ignoring signs along the way. They did not offer any complimentary snacks at all. Only one drink"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The flight was delayed well over an hour. I was unable to check in the night before. I was finally able to check in online the afternoon of the flight, but no seats were left, so had a boarding pass with no seat assignment. Got to the gate and they sent me and about 25 other folks with no seat assignment to wait for a "colleague" who finally appeared after almost everyone else had boarded. I did get a seat, but I was one of the last to board. They ran out of salmon dinners, so the stewardess plopped a chicken dish in front of me--didn't eat since I am vegetarian. The stewardess did give me a free mini bottle of wine, which is normally free on Lufthansa. I am just not all that impressed with SAS. I will try to avoid them in the future."
Cons: "We missed the connection and they rescheduled us on another connecting flight with further delays. This airline doesn't seem to care about their customers."
Pros: "I felt valued. The plane was clean and in good condition. The flight crew and attendants were very professional and took good care of the passengers. It was a quiet and stress-free travel experience."
Cons: "Can't think of a single thing."
Pros: "Entertainment variety"
Cons: "You had to pay for drinks"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Zero leg room, no overhead compartment space. Pinned to the wall in my window seat by an over weight Swedish man sitting beside me. Horrible flight !!!"
Cons: "While boarding, a crew member neglect to help me finding space on the bins for my carry on luggage with a very rough answer. However same crew member kindly attend people coming next to my wife and me. During the rest of the flight no one even direct us a single word. Seems that SAS crew's attention depend on your ethnicity."
Pros: "The service was terrific and the flight was quick and easy."
Cons: "Geneva airport was a zoo! Oslo was very nice."
Pros: "Fish was excellent, flight attendant gave me free wifi after after I had an issue to pay w my card, I was let through express security in copenhagen, US border protection was fast and easy."
Cons: "I didn't get a window seat and it was a little bit tight."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The constant service provided by the flight crew. The food was excellent and even got a free beer. The inflight entertainment selection was abundant, did not even have to listen to my music. Very friendly crew."
Cons: "I understand coach is coach, but it was a little tight for my height."
Pros: "A perfect service"
Pros: "Easy boarding, food equate for economy, entertainment fine. No wine or beer inc,used in economy but not a big deal. Excellent seating if you know what to chose."
Cons: "90 min waiting in the plane withou ac in IAD 4 hs delay in Copenhagen airport. I missed flight back from Athens because a ferry delay from Santorini despite calling SAS being updated of my delay. When I arrived to Athens airport, SAS staff left and KAYAK was not supportive. My tickets were cancelled from Athens to IAD."
Pros: "everything except"
Cons: "They lost my bag on a direct flight that was only two hours. Then said it would take 2-3 days to deliver I won't be in Austria 2-3 days. I am very angry and they did nothing to fix the situation just told me to call in the morning."
Cons: "Very cramped business set with no place for storage. Comfort is good though"
Cons: "Timeliness. Cleanliness. Service. Food and drinks."

Cons: "friendlier staff, better food options"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Hectic boarding; airplane seemed very old"
Cons: "London Concorde first Lounge is old, food and service terrible, toilets dirty. And that is the best they got. Will try to avoid BA and only use if no other option. LH and AF much better in Europe"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled after boarding us and letting us sit on the plane on the rollway for 2 hours."
Pros: "More legroom than other aircraft, plentiful IFE (in-flight entertainment), and a USB charging point in the seat back near the video screen. Decent food and wine, great crew."
Cons: "We departed the terminal for takeoff but a passenger had a medical emergency requiring a return to the gate and off-loading along with finding the passenger’s baggage down below. Not the airline’s fault, of course, but maybe passengers should carefully consider their health before embarking on an 11.5 hour flight from one continent to another."
Pros: "Meals, crew, movies"
Cons: "Late departure caused down stream issues."
Cons: "Rerouted due to a cancellation"
Pros: "Food was excellent"
Cons: "Seats and seat configuration"
Pros: "I got free juice and a snack, almost unheard of nowadays!"
Cons: "I don't know what happened. Check-in took almost an hour. Usually it only takes 10 or 15 minutes. I am glad that I got to the airport 2 hours a head of time."
Pros: "very pleasant attendants."
Cons: "a bit crammed."
Pros: "Wonderful flight attendants. Flight was on time."
Cons: "2 cups of hot tea-norhing else- cost 4 pounds!"
Pros: "Those beautiful British accents (ok English spoken properly)"
Pros: "Arrived on time although departure was delayed. Cabin crew was vert friendlyand boarding was fast"
Cons: "Would have been nice if the reading material was not so beat up to match the plane's perfect interior, otherwise nothing to fault at all"
Cons: "Screens were difficult to maneuver. In some instances wouldn't open."
Pros: "Food good! Crew friendly"
Cons: "Food was great and plentiful! The crew were friendly and helpful. Seats were compact. But that’s usual for airlines. Plan extra time for customs...aaaaugh!!!! Two hours! I’ve never had to wait that long before."
Pros: "Music, maps, news"
Cons: "I tried used assistence and lost de conetion"
Pros: "Great for traveling for the first time with my toddler! The staff were so nice and helpful."
Pros: "All pretty good."
Cons: "I received an email before the flight telling me as the flight would be operated by another carrier there would be free refreshments - but it wasn't and there weren't. Rather odd."
Pros: "Big wide seats on this Airbus compared to the 7 hrs flight from BWI to London on the Boeing Dreamliner more like Nightmareliner"
Pros: "Boarding was swift and timely, seats ok"
Cons: "There was an engine problem and they told us while we were taxiing. Went back for more check nd fierce several trials they had to repair the problem. This cause a delay of two hour during which we had to sit in the plane and no drinks or snacks of any kind were offered. But what’s worse there were vague, confused and misleading information given both by the captain and the crew regarding the connecting flights. As matter of fact, although I arrived with a two hour delay and had only one hour for my connection, I followed the instructions and run like hell(literally)to the boarding gate. I made it for a few minutes. The personnel was very friendly and helpful and they made all they could to check me on the flight just to find out BA had cancelled my booking even before my arrival to London. I made it home and they apologized but this is not how I expected BA to handle a delay(which I understand can happen)."
Pros: "Flights were on time"
Pros: "Everyone was quite pleasant. Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "The initial line for check in was ridiculous. Not manned for quite some time, then kept changing line classifications. May have been related to how Spain ran the airport, but very puzzling"
Pros: "Food and entertainment was good."
Cons: "Most of the flight attendants were nice. However, on one flight a couple of them were rude. One made a comment "you are making their job hard". I was sitting across the aisle from my mother who is 80 years old and was getting her entertainment set up since she is technically challenged. I told him that I didn't mean to make his job hard. After that, he then smiled regularly to make up for the comment. Also, one of the flights we had to buy coffee, water, or anything other non-alcohol beverage we wanted to drink. Not sure why on one flight we didn't get free beverage service when all of the other BA flights provided it."
Pros: "No food or entertainment. Flight was delayed, then delayed more because of gate assignment."
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable and no entertainment on the flight."
Pros: "All but one of the FAs were amazing. Very kind and patient with the kids on the plane. The plane was also very quiet and comfortable."
Cons: "The food was super greasy and not good. My daughter wouldn't even eat her Mac and cheese. The overhead voice is very quiet and hard to hear. I didn't hear most of anything that was said other than the safety briefing."
Pros: "Crew. They were polite and attentive to passangers"
Cons: "Boarding process was confusing. On flight entretaiment very limited"
Pros: "Great service!"
Cons: "My flight was booked for April 25 and my paperwork actually showed that. Upon arrival at Gatwick I was told the flight left on April 24 and no other flight till April 27 so I had to go to Heathrow."
Pros: "Where's my luggage British Airways? You lost all of my most precious belongings, after you forced me to check my bag!"
Cons: "Well standing at the luggage carousel like a fool waiting for luggage that has yet to be found, really sucked! Not cool to be forced to check my luggage at the baggage check and ticketing because they claim there's no room for it, then they lose my bag. All the other people had their carry-ons. We checked in 3 1/2 hours early, and apparently they did this to 6 other families on our flight! Not good to be losing so much luggage."
Cons: "Very poor facilities at Terminal 3 London Airport (1) Bathrooms were cold. (2) No lounge type chair for long wait passenger. Only common waiting area. (3) Waiting area seats were dirty and food particles between two seats. (4) Cell phone charges and electric outlets at seating chairs does not work. (5) Very limited food choice. (6) Might they have to see and visit other international airports"
Pros: "I liked all of the entertainment options and the food was quite good for an airplane. I also liked that I had a free seat next to me for more room."
Cons: "There's never enough legroom and I always wish there was a way to remove the headrest since it sometimes really bothers my neck since there are only so many ways it can bend. For taller people, it sometimes makes your head bend forward when you need to rest it back further."
Pros: "Impressed by service of staff"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 2 hours!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "The seat rows are too close together. When the woman in front of me reclined her seat she was basically in my lap- not how I wanted to spend 7 hours. I finally had to put my knees against her seat to keep her from reclining. It took a lot of effort to cross/uncross my legs in the limited space. I'm only 5'4" 118lbs - I can't imagine how anyone bigger than me feels when they have to fly in the same situation."
Pros: "The food was good plus drinks"
Cons: "There was no wifi in an 11h flight"
Pros: "Messed up the boarding, all were confuses"
Cons: "Crew seemed frenetic--running around first half of flight than chilling for the rest...nice enough however."
Pros: "The food was good and the leg room was very good. The flight was on time."
Cons: "On both flight s going to LAX to London and London to LAX we were sitting in the back of the plan with all the families with noisy kids. on the flight to London I had two twins in one seat it was difficult for the mother and the children were all over the place. with a tantrum at the end of the flight because of having to have the seat belt on. On the flight home we were in the last row and all kinds of crying kids. If I ever fly again on British Air I want a seat further forward but if is hard to pre book your seat. We are in our 70's and would like a quieter area."
Pros: "Silent aircraft, good indoor climate"
Cons: "Food was awful, boarding takes too long"
Pros: "Better in meal flight meal than I though."
Cons: "Kayak didn't let us know our first leg was cancelled."
Pros: "The crew s oustanding. They were courteous, helpful, very professional and made the flying experience a pleasure for my family. With respect to the Miami ticket agents, there are 3 people I want to highlight for excellent service. Denise, who courteously accommodated our family and rescheduled our flight as needed, another young lady who checked us in. She was sensitive to our party of 5 and was extremely pleasant. The check in process was chaotic at best and she helped make it a pleasant experience. The person is Diane, the manager at the Miami airport. She helped bring order to a completely disorganized check in process and ended up personally escorting us through security toe sure that we made our flight on time. Diane is an excellent leader."
Cons: "The check in process was completely disorganized, due to a cancelled flight from Miami to Heathrow the night before. And there were 3 scheduled flights already that people were checking in for as well. There had to have been at least 600+ people in line to check in, plus those from the night before. The Miami airport doesn't have kiosks for passengers to easily check in and bag drop, which doesn't make sense in such a large and busy international airport. That would have made a huge difference in this case. Also, we paid for our seats to select them prior to 24 hours and we ended up not sitting together."
Pros: "Short jump to Dallas"
Cons: "Didn't even offer or apologize for no drink service. Prefer Southwest-excellent customer service. Airport check in was terrible. Was placed in 3 different lines before the computer checked us through. Worst I have EVER experienced."
Cons: "It took ages to get everyone to board. Arrived in Amsterdam almost an hour later. BA need to either speed up the boarding process or allow earlier boarding time."
Pros: "Service was good and the foodcwasnt that bad"
Pros: "A nice surprise for the kids. Movies are all free in any class of seat. current blockbusters are in the choices. The children's choices were great as well. A dinner was included again for every class of service."
