Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Excellent crew. Very good food. Comfortable seats."
Pros: "The flight crew/staff were professional and very helpful and accommodating to the passengers from check in to deboarding."
Cons: "Seats were a little close, especially for a long flight, with meals."
Pros: "Crew was great. They made up for mistakes in a positive and amenable way."
Cons: "Flight was late. There was no communication about it. The flight from Joburg to Doha was late, therefore I missed my connection. The delay was not officially communicated to any of the passengers — no announcements made, no representatives to talk to at the gate — until well past the time that we should have been in the air. It was distressing."
Cons: "They are the best and air Canada should learn from them"

Pros: "Yes overall probably the best flight to Chennai from DC"
Pros: "The seat was ok and the food was good."
Cons: "Though the staff was friendly, I found them a bit unhelpful. I was literally holding three bags and a toddler in my arms, and passed at least three airline crew members. However, not one of them even bothered offering for help. I don’t expect that from a world class airline."
Pros: "Great crew and front desk"
Cons: "Low cost airline so they charge you for everything. I had to pay $159 to check a bag for a 1.5 hour flight. That nearly doubled the cost of the original ticket. By the time they charge you for everything, you don't save any money. And they even weigh every purse, backpack, handbag, etc. at the gate and start charging customers for carry on. Don't fly with these guys. And because their customers are dissatisfied, all the employees I encountered were rude."

I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha.

Cons: "Had a missed flight due to weather delay. Made multiple calls to customer service. Multiple times the solution suggested was to go to a local Turkish Airlines office.

Pros: "Asked for emergency exit but was told to pay. Managed to change inside the plane."
Cons: "Turkish now joins the sad club of airlines that charges for better seats."
Pros: "Overall the experience was good with friendly staff."

Pros: "The food and service were great."
Cons: "Seats were a bit tight"
Cons: "They moved the time up without prior notice. I could have lost the flight. They checked my bag in Antalya via Istanbul to Naples. When arrived in Naples no luggage. After long wait was told it is held in security in Istanbul. They should have not boarded me if they had problem with the luggage or at least they should have told me in Istanbul not after arriving at destination and have to search for an answer. Extremely poor airline and will never fly with them again."
Cons: "The veg food is quiet bland"

Cons: "I don't like landings but the crew did well!!"
Pros: "Amazing service and comfortable environment. The really take care of you"
Cons: "Boarding Process could be a little streamlined. Guess we are used to the regulated process"
Cons: "Missed the flight bc they changed the gate for the flight without making any announcements. Told me I could pay a penalty fee in excess of $450 to be out on another flight even though same flights to Amsterdam where currently $213 online. When I told them about the price of the tickets online, the response of the customer service agent was "yeah, sometimes the penalties are high". He didn't do anything to try to help. The entire Turkish airlines team at IST is the biggest joke for a customer service team I have ever encountered in any line of business. I have never met a group of "professionals" that are so unprofessional, rude, void of empathy, and overall customer service knowledge than the turkish airlines team at IST. I will never conduct business with Turkish Airlines again and will ensure all my friends, family, and colleagues try their best to avoid them too."
Cons: "This flight was cancelled due to weather conditions in Turkey, a snow storm that caused the Istanbul airport to be closed. I tried to reschedule my flight but was delayed 4 days which meant I was going to miss my work for 3 days."
Pros: "The crew was nice They handled the delay well so we didn't missed our connection afterall"
Cons: "1. We had to wait 2 hours in the plane 2. there is no way to use the monitors (not a personal monitor)."

Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable. Headphones are really not very good quality. Touch screen difficult to use (not very responsive to touch)."
Pros: "Excellent food, service and on-time"
Cons: "Seats too close together. Also -- and VERY important -- they are so close together that they shouldn't be allowed to tilt back and press further into the person n the back's knees. NOTE: Turkish Airlines is, by far, not alone with this problem. Airlines have jammed too many seats in the plane. Increase fares a tad and give more knee space."
Pros: "Having seen so many ads promoting the quality and service of Turkish Aurlines, I was quite disappointed in the end. Only the entertainment and seat facilities were good."

Pros: "All trip was good."
Cons: "At the boarding que there was a Lufthansa employee singling out carry on bags for gate check, when they would clearly fit in the overhead. She addressed me and others in a curt and arguably rude tone of voice and mannerisms. No further instruction was given for the gate check process, hence I rolled the small suitcase to the entry of the aircraft, where the Purser asked why I would wish to check the bag. When I recounted the story, he chuckled and said, bring it aboard, there is no reason to check that bag."
Cons: "Limited space"
Pros: "i was able to to do check in on line, be updated on changing gates,"
Cons: "No boarding advantages as a star alliance silver member."
Cons: "The Budapest Airport was not very organized for check-in."
Cons: "Lufthansa sent my luggage to the wrong destination. And I'm spending the 4th of July weekend in another city without my clothes. And I need to go back to the airport to get the luggage."
Pros: "I love Lufthansa! It's my preferred carrier!"
Cons: "Leg space is tight"
Pros: "short and comfortable"
Pros: "I was comfortable, not affraid."
Pros: "All the services were great."
Cons: "Everything was perfect."
Pros: "Smooth Ride Stewardesses"
Cons: "I was denied boarding. No one told me that my passport had to be 6 mo. to expiration. Why the hell do you even put an expiration date if you're going to deny all travels prior to 6 months?"
Pros: "I enjoyed the attentiveness of the staff"
Cons: "No issues."
Cons: "coach seating sold as biz class"
Cons: "My bag is approved carry-on size, and I travel weekly with it. The gate agent forced to check it which was unnecessary and unreasonable."
Pros: "Checkin was timely and the agent helpful!"
Cons: "The immigration line was way too long in New Delhi."
Pros: "On time, quick, reliable."
Pros: "Thank you very much for taking care of my mother she is 79 years old doesn't speak English. and needed wheel chair. and she was thrilled happy and very comfortable thruw all your flights. I want to thank you personally from the bottom of my heart because it's very hard for me to send her overseas with her condition and no language. you guys awesome thank you very much again."
Pros: "Ontime and efficient boarding with polite crew."
Cons: "Nothing to improve. I slept the whole flight so couldn’t evaluate all aspects."
Cons: "No food, no entertainment. Ridiculous!! Not even a damn sandwich!!"
Pros: "Fast and efficient!"
Pros: "Good boarding process and crew today."
Cons: "Plane was delayed and connection in Copenhagen was missed, resulting in a five-hour delay overall."
Pros: "The airplane was modern and well kept. The crew were attentive and kind."
Cons: "Nothing - our flight out was great!"
Pros: "On time. Good hardware."
Cons: "Priority passangers cannot board with their non priority partner, even on the sane reservation. Congratulations sas, only airline workdwide to prohibit this. Otherwise, also forgot my duty free bag at the gate and the crew refused to have me return for it or get it for me."
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."
Cons: "The flight good bit it’s always crappy when you loose your luggage"
Pros: "Fairly new plane."
Cons: "Only airline that made us check in our luggage; and charged us an exorbitant amount (+/- $90 per luggage) in doing so. No customer service at all. 1st attendant wouldn’t let us check-in at the counter, and 2nd attendant made us check in our carry-on despite it only being 2kg over. We could’ve moved some items around. When we boarded the plane, we saw multiple people whose carry-on looked suspiciously over the weight limit. We felt singled out. It was obvious that this airline only cares about profit and does not care about the customer. Attendants were rude and not helpful. Needless to say I will nit fly with this airline again."
Cons: "We arrived late in Copenhagen and I had 20 minutes to catch my connecting flight. Even though I was checked-in for the Copenhagen to Athens flight it left without me. I was then transferred through Prague to get to Athens and again missed my connecting flight through there. Now I am stuck in Prague looking for a flight to Athens and most likely will miss my next flight from Athens to Karpathos and will again be stuck in Athens because there are no flights out to Karpathos until 19 of May, 3days from now. I was physically in the Copenhagen airport and could have made that flight, I feel that since I was already checked in they should have waited for me and allowed me to board. Now I will Be missing work!"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy. Decent amount of overhead space. The pilot was friendly. USB ports for charging phones at the seat. Free bottle of water at your seat."
Cons: "No overhead fan. When flight got really hot, no way to moderate temperature. No choice of food at all, unless you are in economy plus. I don't remember the last time that a trans-Atlantic flight had at least a meant, or fish, or vegetarian dish. Usually, at least two or three dishes. On SAS, everything has to be ordered ahead of time. Some of the flight attendants were friendly, some not so friendly. No free alcoholic drinks even with dinner. Limited regular drinks - they are only served with food, aside from that you have to purchase even the non-alcoholic drinks. The food just wasn't very good, even compared to other airline food. Compared to other companies, relatively small selection of entertainment. I had considerably more choice on a domestic flight than on a 9 hr. international SAS flight. Storage pockets at the seat are pretty small."
Pros: "On Time, Friendly,well maintained equipment"
Cons: "No free drinks inner Europe...except water"
Pros: "Really appreciated how helpful everyone was, from check-in at Newark to arrival. The entertainment system worked well, too. Aside from the two issues I describe below, SAS seems to be extremely efficient and well-run."
Cons: "There was some mix-up - not sure where - but I did requested a vegetarian meal and it wasn't in the system. I'd also requested an aisle seat due to a hip issue and was told I'd have one - but when I went to check in, I'd been put in a center seat in a bulkhead. I was able to change but it was the last row of the plane. We the gate they were able to move me up at the last minute - but this all could've been much easier."
Pros: "premium economy"
Cons: "nothing, it was great!"
Cons: "The seats were far too narrow. At least I could put both feet under the seat in front of me!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were pleasant. We received pillows and blankets and a bottle of water upon boarding. Dinner and a snack was served. The seats are comfortable."
Cons: "The snack was some kind of pickled vegetable strudel. I wish I could have had a choice of something else. I didn't like that for the whole we were only offered one complementary soft drink."
Pros: "My Plus ticket brought me an excellent cold lunch despite the shortness of the flying time (only 1:10). The seats need more recline!"
Pros: "They did what they could..."
Cons: "Delay change of tire. Missed next flight Frankfurt- Dallas."
Pros: "The crew was nice, the plane was large and had many bathrooms. The seats were comfortable enough and there was a good selection of movies to watch."
Cons: "The boarding process was completely disorganized and hectic. The woman making the announcements on the plane was extremely soft spoken and the PA system was static-y so I could neither hear nor understand any of the announcements. The refrigeration system for the food also broke down on the plane so we weren't fed our second meal. Instead, they chose the cheapest and most unappealing snack of plain almonds to give us. Despite confirming our luggage situation with us at the first airport repeatedly (because of our connecting flight) SAS still temporarily lost our baggage when we arrived at our final destination and caused us to stay an additional hour at the airport after already having spent an exhausting day travelling."
Pros: "Great takeoff and landing.Care ethics of the stuff was excellent. The quality of the food was very good and it was served with care."
Pros: "Crew very nice. More leg room in front of seats then most planes.. Plane on time ."
Cons: "Not many movie choices, Food was just ok. Do not put tomatoes on sandwiches ahead of time, it makes the bread wet and soggy."
Pros: "The crew was fine. Got there on time."
Cons: "We arrived early to airport and we could not check in till 1hr before flight with the rest of the 200plus passengers. So waited in line with heavy bags just unnesccessary! Then get thru security and nowhere to sit for flight. But have shopping!!! Omg who needs to shop we want to sit and get food!!!! Not stand and fight to get food because your airline gives no snacks or drinks!! It's like entering prison for 2hrs"
Pros: "The crew and aircraft were nice."
Cons: "Checking into the flight in Athens was a complete cluster. The cue line was rerouted multiple times for passengers checking into the flight. This caused confusion, delays and frustration. Initially, only one gate agent was checking in the flight. Unreal."
Pros: "Comfy seats. Good good service. Great video options."
Cons: "SAS staff seems sort of cold and cranky."
Pros: "The flight was very comfortable. I came to know this after I feel asleep instantly after take off."
Cons: "Missed connection was re-routed by United directly to FRA"
Pros: "This flight was also one of the best I have taken. I enjoyed it very much."
Cons: "It was a little upsetting to see and hear one of the crew members be a little nasty with my sister when he asked her about the meal. She misunderstood and asked for chicken andvhe was quite nasty when he corrected her and gave her the two options."
Pros: "Even though I did not get the seat I paid extra for, it was a great flight."
Pros: "Smooth flight with friendly crew"
Cons: "Small plane"
Pros: "The flight wasn't late and didn't crash."
Cons: "I paid for a business class ticket and was jammed in like a sardine no different than economy, then told "you get a lunch for free". Hundreds of dollars more for a $5.00 lunch is NOT why I booked business class!"
Cons: "the seats are very narrow, not comfortable movies are not good - either old or low rated movies"
Cons: "Rated low on food and entertainment because they didn't have any of such items... Not because they were bad."
Cons: "I wasn't able to take this flight due to my first leg being cancelled. However, I did end up being placed on the SAS flight to Stockholm from Chicago, which was an overall nice flight. The only thing I didn't like was the timing of the flight. Because my starting point was from somewhere other than Chicago, this made for a very long and tiring trip. I wouldn't recommend this flight for people flying from places other than Chicago."
Pros: "Clean Cabin/Food selection/"
Cons: "it all started at Boarding..... long lines with no access for premium passengers to board. get to Aircraft and no greeting......Late /Delayed Departure which caused a HELL of a Trip including missed connections in IAD and Sleeping in the Airport till that next day! my 16 hour trip back home turned into 37 Hours.........Cabin Crew not so friendly and in a rush! I was surprised, normally they are always pleasant and smiling."
Pros: "The plane was well kept and the entertainment system worked well with enough choice. The crew was average: no problems."
Cons: "The (transatlantic) flight was delayed 8 hours and the only compensation received was 175DKK for lunch. Had to stay in the airport over 11 hours due to this delay and had already had a 16 hour layover from the day before. I realize that unexpected delays may occur, particularly in cases where passenger safety is in question, but delays of more than 5 hours cause major inconvenience and I felt stuck in the airport with my bags and having checked out of my hotel room already. Just compensating for lunch is not enough. In the future a partial reimbursement for the flight, access to the priority lounge or a more comfortable facility such as a hotel would provide the passengers with compensation proportional to the inconvenience."
Cons: "I could not check in online for this leg of the trip and so could not simply go to a baggage drop line. The company handling checkin dealt with 4 or 5 airlines. It was not clear from iceland air website that i had to checkin with SAS. First stood in line for iceland air then had to go stand in line again for company handling SAS. Spent way too much time online doing this. Otherwise trip was fine."
Pros: "My seat did not recline."
Cons: "That the staff didn't seem to think it was a big deal."
Cons: "My suitcase was never put on my flight from LAX - ARN, despite checking in 24 hours early and arriving at baggage drop 2.5 hours before my flight. I still have not received my suitcase in Helsinki, and they can't seem to locate it. I am on vacation in Finland and have no clothes, medicine, or toiletries and everyone at SAS and baggage claim have been very unhelpful."
Pros: "Comfortable seating in PLUS"
Cons: "The flight didn't even exist because of a strike and neither kayak nor SAS informed us the flight was canceled, so we found out after we got to the airport."
Pros: "Helpful staff."
Cons: "Taking a bus from the airplane to Frankfurt Airport is less than ideal, but it worked fine."
Pros: "Crew was great. One of the best ever."
Cons: "With a flight scheduled for around 11 hours, seat comfort is at the top of my list of importance. These big Airbus planes have the worst seats for long hauls. I had forgotten previous experiences when I made the reservation but won't in the future. If it is a big Airbus, I'll opt for a flight with a 767, 777, 747 or 787. And what's with one soda per flight? Overall, an acceptable flight but just barely."
Pros: "The flight attendant who gave me a salmon dinner even though I didn't request vegetarian meal ahead of time. The movies! on time!"
Pros: "Seating on the older plane was larger and not as closely jammed together"
Cons: "I had a screaming 2 year old child in the seat next to me and her mother either could not or would not control him. It was the flight from hell ..............."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Cons: "Only offered coffe or tea no cold drinks."
Pros: "The crew was great and attentive. I couldn't have asked for more on a trans-atlantic flight."
Cons: "arrived late to the airport (my fault) but still in time to make flight. online check in wasn't working the day before. kiosks at airport wouldn't print a boarding pass although it said i was already checked in and nobody was at the desk to print me a boarding pass. dissapointing experience to say the least. ended up missing my flight and only being refunded the tax (about 20% of the total ticket cost)"
Pros: "food was decent, more recent tv/movie system than my first flight."
Cons: "lost my bag, no updates 24 hours later had to pay for alcoholic beverages on 9+ hour flight"
Cons: "Very cramped business set with no place for storage. Comfort is good though"
Cons: "No delays"
Pros: "Crew good, plane clean."
Cons: "Seats very cramped."
Pros: "Speed boarding and organized overall. Nice crew."
Pros: "LCY very efficient baggage drop, flight arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled after boarding us and letting us sit on the plane on the rollway for 2 hours."
Pros: "Attentive service by flight attendants"
Pros: "Crew was also nice."
Cons: "I had to wait for bus to get the continue flight. The time waiting was so long I could not board the flight and had to rebook to the next possible flight."
Cons: "Was surprised that you have to pay for all drinks. They want 2.50 for a baby can of coke."
Pros: "Flight itself was very smooth, especially the landing. Food was good also, both the chicken and pasta were prepared well. Pasta could have used a little more sauce. Quantities and variety were also good."
Cons: "I still don't understand why airlines don't board from the back to the front. Would make the entire process go much smoother. The bigger the plane the bigger the problem and delay. I don't mind storing a bag under the seat but there's more stuff taking up legroom so it's hard to get the feet comfortable which is important for those longer flights."
Cons: "So out flight from Heathrow to Frankfurt arrived late at the Heathrow airport and, reportedly in a hurry to let us take off, they chose to inconvenience us further by not loading all our luggage. They said on the plane that, if we are missing our luggage, it will come in on the next flight. I don’t understand the logic of the decision to not load our luggage to try to save us time."
Pros: "Flight was uneventful (the way it should be) although it was over an hour late leaving LHR. The cabin was clean and in generally in good condition. Leg room was okay for a short flight. Didn't try the onboard cuisine but it looked good in the pictures, although somewhat expensive!"
Cons: "The bag drop at LHR T5 was bad. I was in line for almost 25 mins waiting to use the self-serve system. Almost every one of the 10 or so people in front of me had problems with the system and had to call over a staff member to help. It would have been so much quicker to have the 'old style' way of having check-in staff receiving bags!"
Cons: "Flight delayed by one hour Gate not announced as indicated on flight board When announced only gave about one half hour to make it to gate and board"
Cons: "BA took us onboard, flew us 40 minutes into Frankfurt and they decided there was a mechanical problem and returned back into Heathrow. The next plane did not arrive until 5 hours later, which lead to missing the connection flight. We were asking for updates and nobody knew anything. We asked to be changed to different airline and they could even do that. They did not compensate or pay anything, which is unacceptable. Horrible customer service."
Cons: "Cancelled flight and horrible customer service!"
Cons: "Late like always no even a free drink of water sad sad"
Pros: "The boarding and crew was nice... no complaints."
Cons: "Did not realize that, at least, water was NOT complimentary ... food & drink had to be paid for. Bummer."
Pros: "The flight kept getting delayed, but made up during flight so I was able to catch my connection in Frankfurt. Very pleased about that."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 50 minutes and the gate was not available until 30 minutes of departure. Tap water, really?"
Cons: "We nearly missed the plane due to how closely our flights were scheduled. Then our luggage did not arrive with us our plane. We didnt have time to stop for a snack or water so a small something would have been helpful."
Pros: "The plane didnt crash. I liked that."
Cons: "It was Delayed and no one was notified. I was rushing through the endless mess that is London Heathrow only to find a delayed flight - which worked out for me. I just wish I had known. The flight itself was more than 2 hours and not even a complimentary soda? You have to pay for a coke? I've taken 45 minute flights to vegas that offered complimentary drinks and snacks. Pretty odd."
Pros: "Flight was over all comfortable."
Cons: "No snacks were provided."
Pros: "Security check was quick and easy."
Cons: "The flight left 35 minutes late but arrived on time"
Pros: "Good service ...very convenient... reliability..... but please pleaes start using new aircraft’s I have been flying Ba 118 to London for 12 years ..... I need to update your aircraft’s .... when I do Lhr - NYE the aircraft’s are much better.... all my business friends have now shifted to Emirates because of the service and aircraft’s..... I keep flying BA because of the convenience of the direct flight and loyalty I have for the airline..... but we deserve better aircraft’s....."
Pros: "The flight wasn't as late on arrival as I anticipated it would be."
Cons: "The ground staff were completely useless when it came to actually getting a new flight after missing my earlier flight when I showed up with only 20 minutes to spare and the ground crew left the gate before it actually closed. They then wanted to charge me 500 euros for a replacement flight, in the end Kayak online got me on the same flight for less than 100 euros. The rest of the flight was mediocre. Lufthansa and Virgin do so much of a better job with overall staff on the ground."
Cons: "At security London Heathrow, it took 30 minutes for them to check 1 bag of ours! Almost didn't make the flight."
Pros: "Routine departure"
Cons: "Booked emergency exit for legroom but did not get it due to full flight."
Pros: "Not a very crowded flight. Boarding was efficient and we departed and arrived early. As the flight was short there was no meal service or entertainment."
Cons: "There were no power adapters in the seats."
Cons: "Full flight affected leaving time + 20 minute taxi to runway"
Pros: "The flight safety video and the crew were very helpful."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment"
Pros: "Always a good flight out of LCY"
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Lack of communication about delays."
Pros: "Everything was smooth. crew was courteous. Flight was plesant"
Pros: "Flight on time, good crew, got a direct gate position at FRA."
Cons: "Legroom in Club Europe is poor, seating in the front rows should not have been densified so much."
Pros: "Everything was on time."
Cons: "It is a very good flight i seen. The flight was timely. Landing was very good."
Cons: "Heathrow connecting gate announced only shortly before flight, thousands of connecting passengers kept in a central holding pen like cattle flight: have to pay even for a cup of water"
Pros: "Great service!"
Cons: "So, the flight to Frankfurt never happened because of whatever happened with British Airways on 05/27/2017. We waited without information in the airport for over 6 hours and then were told to exit after which it took another 3 to 4 hours to get out of the airport. We were told to find a hotel with no help or voucher - nothing was showing available under $1000 a night, save our receipts for any food we might have, rebook our flight. As we were leaving the airport, we were given water, nothing before that. We received information as we were leaving the airport about our rights for recompense. Fortunately, a Heathrow staff member helped us with finding a hotel that cost about $400. We never were able to get to Frankfurt to see our family there and had to book train tickets to Paris to meet our hotel reservation there two days later. It was a bad situation, handled in a way that caused confusion, fear and unhealthy situations of standing for long periods and I will not be doing business with British Airways in future."
Pros: "Arrived ahead of time, although flight was fully booked, boarding was quick."
Cons: "Nothing, flights to Frankfurt have always gone off on time for me."
Pros: "All perfect !!!"
Pros: "There should be a special section for babies."
Cons: "Sitting on runway for 3 hrs and then get kicked off without good instruction. This was our 1st trip, so we felt stupid about everything after the flight was cancelled. Oh well. Much smarter now."
Cons: "I know that I shouldn't be shocked by the continued degradation of the airlines, but there should be a line. To me, a simple glass of water should not be too much to ask."
Pros: "quite nice and friendly staff. many vacant seats and thus much space to seat comfortable"
Cons: "old airplane, kind of run down impression. annoying and not really working touchscreen, lousy choice of movies. Everything had the air of not being organized, we had to change our seats twice without knowing, why. Really poor food compared to any other airline I know. One of the stewards constantly spilled drops of beverages over me, when he was pouring them for me and the passengers around."
Pros: "Flight took off on time and arrived 10 minutes early."
Cons: "Crew was pretty unfriendly! There was no food served and no in-flight entertainment although the flight was 4 hours! Worst airline I have been so far! They need to learn alot from other airlines such as American Airways or Turkish Airlines!"
Cons: "Delayed twice, switched gates, AND forced to gate check my carry on "because the plane was small" and supposedly they were having everyone check their bags. Except that didn't turn out to be true. Frustrating although baggage claim had bags waiting when we got through customs."
Pros: "The TV and Movie options were good. The food was good too. The staff was very attentive."
Cons: "My luggage was misplaced, but I got it delivered to my house by Wednesday evening."
Cons: "Then I could not catch my London-Chicago Flight, so they put me on a Barcelona Charlotte AA flight and then Charlotte Chicago flight, which I had to run through customs to catch. But may luggage didn't make it. Overall it was one of those terrible experiences"
Cons: "I was not informed about visa - so i need to bay 2nd ticket. I sent redound request email - but no reply."
Cons: "The tickets were never purchased at British Airways. I showed up at the airport and nobody had a record of me ever purchasing tickets. By the time we realized that kayak had not transferred funds to the airline, the plane had left and I had to completely re-book my trip at triple the cost. I will be disputing charges and contacting fraud services to resolve this issue."
Cons: "Poor food options"
