Top 4 airlines serving Kansas City to Istanbul
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Everything else was good Crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "A crew member at check in gave me stupid trouble about my computer being inside my carry on. That never happened to me before and it was really awful. No other airlines cares how I store my computer during the flight. He required it being outside the carry on, and I still don't understand why. After a while his colleague let me go with no problem. The seating at the seat had some built in ventilation system or something that took space from space for feet and that was uncomfortable especially in the long flight. That machine could be placed way better. For example on the bottom of the seat 28."
Pros: "Everything was amazing. The crew was great! The customer service was even better!"
Cons: "I was tired and fell asleep instead of watching more movies :)"
Pros: "The food and the condition of the plane were outstanding. The people and the service were the best."

Cons: "Horrible service...serving foods then waiting literally 2 hours to pick up trays.. Flight delayed, no info given to passengers."
Pros: "Great movie selection. Some of the staff ( only some ) are really nice."

Pros: "Flight attendants, smooth process in and out, easy flight"

Pros: "The journey was very smooth and I did enjoy the ride."
Cons: "I like everything about the ride. Boarding, food etc. But I wish the stay at the airport could be shorter before my second leg- that is to Nigeria. Having come from Houston and arrived on Sunday, I had to wait for about 18 hours to board the next flight. I did not get a hotel and was not told about it. However, much later when I appeared at the information desk after another passenger had spoken to me, I was referred to a stand which offered me a ticket for a meal that night. Please see what you can do about the waiting time. Thanks again for the lovely ride to Istanbul."
Pros: "Adjustable headrest, choice of foods, inclusion of a phone charger"

Cons: "worst service ever on arrival at Istanbul airport. we were lead through stairways from flight rather than terminal. It was same with departing for Mumbai. we carried our handbags and left to go through stairways. I won't recommend anyone for this flight."

Cons: "One of my seat belts was clearly VERY old. Perhaps the oldest I have ever used. All those around me seemed similarly warn. It told me that not only the plane was old but they are neglecting any kind of refurbishments to the cabin. No entertainment at all. Even their newer planes do not have USB power or wifi."

Pros: "Nice crew, good food"
Cons: "Old seat broken table for eating !!!! Flight announcements very loud during night"
Cons: "RUDE AND UNCOOPERATIVE STAFF!!! Had the worst flight of my life, and I travel at least twice a year, but have never had such bad an experience! Terrible planes, physically filthy seats, disgusting food. Your staff forgets to serve everyone the same same exact thing. They're rude and totally not willing to help, limited leg space. IT WAS A NIGHTMARE flying Turkish! Worst airlines on the planet!!!"

Pros: "fabulous in-flight entertainment system. best UI/UX and movie selection I have seen in a while. Thanks!"
Cons: "I did not need to check any bags and had already checked-in online, but was forced to wait in line instead of being able to print my ticket from an automated kiosk. Seriously? It's almost 2016. The lines also moved ridiculously slowly, and to add to my consternation, the "online check in" line was serviced by far fewer desks than the normal check-in line. Shouldn't there be an incentive for checking in online? This experience was STUPID AND FRUSTRATING."
Cons: "My carry on was stolen on the flight. The flight crew didn't do anything to help"
Pros: "The food is excellent"
Cons: "Space between seats"
Pros: "Delicious food. Incredible entertainment selection of first-run movies and classics – movies I would've gladly paid to see in the theater. Modern plane. Free drinks and wine."
Cons: "Whining children shouting and running through the aisles. Nonstop screaming literally from beginning of the flight to the end from one loud and unhappy child. It was impossible to sleep as a result. Flight crew did nothing; said nothing to parents. Everyone was aghast. I see other people had the same experience."
Pros: "Flight attendants!"
Pros: "Movie selection was good"
Cons: "Tthe seats and surrounding space was small. The food was bad."
Pros: "The aircrafts were brand new and clean. The personel polite."

Pros: "Flight was well organized. Easy boarding (without vans). All Turkish airlines personnel very helpful, very accommodating. (Makes flight so pleasant!) Good food and entertainment."
Cons: "Seat did not recline. Second flight where this was a problem."
Pros: "Per usual, Turkish Airlines provided great service (friendly, professional and attentive staff; comfortable seating and modern in-flight entertainment systems; overnight swag bags!) and food. I always appreciate their services and look forward to flying with them again. [On my flight, it was a plus that the flight was not full, so I was able to have >2 seats to myself!"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Chicken to dry"
Pros: "everything was as scheduled, very good flight attendants, good food choices"
Cons: "i didn't like all the food but they had many choices"
Cons: "The connection flights are with a too long waiting time"
Pros: "The crew service and food"
Pros: "The crew positive attitude"
Cons: "We understand the COVID-19 crisis but a drink on board other than water will not have bid cost impact on Air Canada, for instance juice or cola,... Also, access on internet on board is now payable -$25 for the flight is exaggerated, it should be free knowing the limited number of passengers on board"
Cons: "Severe turbulence and many of the Egyptian passengers didn't understand the announcements and were getting up"
Pros: "The flt attendants were very good but not exceptional. The entertainment screen was the best I have experienced. Coach was as cramped as every other airline I have flown. Seats were not very comfortable. Food was delicious."
Cons: "Lufthansa, (and all other carriers) need to remove a couple rows of seats in economy class and give passengers the space they deserve. Seats on international flights need to be more comfortable also."
Cons: "Passenger in next seat was so big that his fst hung over the armrest and he took up 3 to 4 inches of my space. Lufthansa should not let passengers this big fly in economy class. I appreciate my space in economy will be limited but I should be able to use all of my allotted space."
Pros: "I was seated in Row 18 (comfort economy?) and my seat was relatively comfortable. The cabin was clean and pleasant. The crew was friendly, efficient, and professional."
Cons: "My family was seated in the economy section and their seats were extremely uncomfortable. I had the pasta dish for dinner and it was mushy to the point of being inedible."
Cons: "The plane is still on the run way waiting for a gate & I’ll miss my shuttle bus to my next stop. Darn..."
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Pros: "all great"
Cons: "my bags arriving!"
Cons: "Be on time"
Cons: "Nothing really :)"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and we were pleasantly surprised to be fed something on the short flight!"
Cons: "Although it was a 4 hour layover, it took almost 3 hours before we saw where our gate was for the flight."
Pros: "Very amazing"
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on-time. Flight attendents were pleasant and helpful. Food portions and choices were good, and Lufthansa is always generous with drinks. Good value for money on Lufthansa."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, as clear instructions were not given about which group was boarding when and where to line up. Also Lufthansa did not do a good job managing carry-on bags, so that it took way too long to load people and many bags were left over once overhead bins were full. Seating area is cramped in economy."
Cons: "The plane was kept at a ridiculous hot temperature the whole flight. There were no air vents above your head and it was god awful uncomfortable for 9 hrs. On our return flight they lost all of our luggage from our whole group of people traveling together. 8 bags lost in total."
Pros: "Best part was how Lufthansa took care of travellers whose connection time was short. They had ground crew waiting and who escorted us through customs, and then drove us to the gate. This is how passengers should be treated. ~ Excellent movie selection ~ Great flight attendants"
Pros: "We left DFW in extremely hot weather. The ground crew managed the boarding to keep everyone out of the hot tunnel entry as long as possible. Even through there was a delay in boarding already, the crew kept us well informed. The cabin crew was very pleasant and accommodating. Smooth flight and still made it to our connecting flight on time."
Cons: "Leg room in coach is really cramped but that is all airlines unfortunately."
Cons: "Because the one came in from London Got Delay And I miss my flight"
Cons: "It didn't happen"
Cons: "Waited an hour after boarding in the plane."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, quite and smooth flight, lots of entertainment options."
Cons: "I was never made aware of what food and drink options there were. I was asleep for the main meal and it would've been nice if they left a snack for me when I woke up."
Pros: "Outstanding cabin crew."
Cons: "Mediocre food with totally inadequate available snacks between meal services. Inadequate meal before landing."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Plane loaded late then waited on the tarmac, arrived an hour later than scheduled time. This has happened to me on every one of the ten Lufthansa flights I have been on. Apparently they don't know what it is to be on-time."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "when seats recline in economy you can barely get in and out of a seat"
Pros: "Crew was super nice, service great and plane comfort appropriate for the duration of the flight."
Cons: "Overhead compartments very narrow and could not fit small carryons."
Pros: "This is about kayak. There's no relationship b/w kayak and lufthansa. Booked my flight through kayak going was okay but returning back was messed up. Kayak booked it in such a way that my schedule was from lagos to Frankfurt to Zurich to toronto without considering the fact that I needed a transit visa which I was not aware of as no one to advise me ahead of time . I ended up paying additional $750 CAD just to change my itinary. This was a very sad experience will never use kayak or recommend to others. My booking number is T28V67. They should have customer service agents to advise people."
Cons: "Kayak did not provide useful information regarding my flight and does not have contact centre like call center where customers can reach an agent for further assistance. When I contacted lufthansa was asked to contact kayak but no number for kayak"
Cons: "Boarding seamed inefficient. Loaded handicap onto separate vehicle in middle of us boarding, so it stopped our process. My seat didn't recline even though it had a button. No in flight entertainment?! At all... Got a crappy breakfast omelet that i didn't want to put in my stomach."
Pros: "good flight hardly any turbulence. Good food/drink choice. The crew was helpful and courteous."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled way, way too close for a comfortable transfer since the second leg of the trip was to go overseas having to go through 3 different queues for passport, boarding and security lines. Need more time to pass the long lines and still be able to catch the connecting flight. Not a smooth connection."
Cons: "Boarding mix up, which was completely Lufthansa's responsibility, delayed my flight to Istanbul for one hour which caused my missing my connection with another airline. This in turn cost me the original flight and a new ticket purchase of at an exorbent price."
Pros: "Nice staff...."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Boarding was fast Crew was polite"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on board!!!!!!"
Pros: "Price was right."
Cons: "Just as bad as on any other airline these days."
Pros: "Always awesome"
Pros: "The food was kind of nice"
Cons: "Hardly any leg room, hardly any elbow room, got middle sitting on all my flights and the lay overs were terrible and last but not least my baggage were I had my holiday did not show up for two days. When it did I tipped the driver 20 pounds as he deserved it more than anyone anyways. Oh yeah almost forgot to mention my bag looks like it went through a meat grinder. Thanks Lufthansa baggage handlers your the best ever ! And BTW this para graph speaks for a my stops and transfers"
Pros: "WiFi, entertainment and USB charging was good."
Cons: "Felt herded like cattle during the boarding process. No children's amenities as advertised. Children's meal was so-so. Adult meals had chocolate included, which children's meal did not have. Seriously?! The snack provided was all inclusive for adults and children and was way too spicy for my 6-year-old."
Cons: "The head rests were very uncomfortable."
Cons: "The boarding was very disorganized."
Pros: "I was very pleased by this flight, all good or excellent."
Cons: "I have nothing negative to say."
Pros: "On the whole, classy service and comfortable The flight attendant who took the time to help me understand how customs would work"
Cons: "The flight attendant who said she'd get back to me when I had a question about connecting flights. Not only did she not get back to me, but with annoyance asked me hadn't I heard the captain's message on the loudspeaker. The captain had said to ask a flight attendant for further info, which is what I was trying to do."
Cons: "Small plain and food was very bad"
Pros: "Fast trip"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Great service from check in to boarding. The in-flight crew was professional, courteous and prompt in responding to any passenger needs."
Cons: "Flight didn't even come and was treated like trash at the airport i stayed 10 hours for nothing but to be told to go home thats all we have to say to you very terrible"
Cons: "thet lost my bag. two days later still not reunited. pasta dinner was horribly pasty"
Pros: "The plane was very comfortable, and I had plenty of space, because I was sitting near to the exit door. The service and the crew were just great. I love traveling with Lufthansa."
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: "Very good cotimer service"
Pros: "I was on row 45 and my sit "shake" a lot during the flight and also when landing. I don't know if it was a weather issue, but it took too long to land and the pressure in the cabin was not OK and made my ears heart a lot. which didn't happened ever before."
Pros: "The entertainment and the size for the legs are very okay on A340 Lufthansa flights compared to other carriers."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work part of the flight"
Cons: "Very nice crew and great food"
Pros: "Pumpkin soup instead of a heavy entree was welcome and tasty. Breakfast yogurt portion was generous, the granola less so. Accompaniments were good. Butter was not ice cold, thank goodness."
Cons: "Inbelievably chaotic boarding process for Kili to Dar leg. No boarding lanes so had to fight through the crowd. Was able to observe cleaning process at Dar stop, which was cursory and am sure there was no cleaning of seats of those who boarded at Kili."
Pros: "Impressive service... amazing crew, very friendly and professional"
Pros: "Crew good and seat OK but not exceptional for business class"
Cons: "Food was average - main course could have been better. Range of movies ok but not great"
Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"
Cons: "Information on arrival time was not correct"
Cons: "Half the screens were not working - crew were made aware but nothing was done. Vegetarian choices were poor to non-existent ; I witnessed crew insist to a passenger that there were no vegetarian options! They finally cobbled something together for him but not a pleasant experience"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and flight was calm"
Cons: "The coffe and breakfast."
Cons: "KLM crew exceed our expectations"
Pros: "Great plane and staff"
Pros: "Nice staff and no delay"
Cons: "Instead of crisps maybe a bit of cheese or crackers"

Cons: "Seats ok, but could be more comfy"
Pros: "Boarding agent extra effort to improve my seating!"
Cons: "Food amount less than expected."
Pros: "Nothing to mention"
Cons: "Crew was rude when I asked if there was a vegetarian option for the snack. I did request special meals for the trip. Even if they did not have a vegetarian option, they don't need to be rude!! Boarding was ridiculous. we were supposed to form a line and wait. Would have been a lot better if they boarded by seat numbers. Also they made me check in my fairly small and light carry on bag resulting in its contents arriving broken!"
Cons: "I’ve traveled a lot internationally and this was the WORST flight I’ve ever had to endure. I felt like I was being tortured and didn’t sleep at all and so slept when getting into Amsterdam rather than being able to explore the city. I was out $200 for the Airbnb (could’ve stayed in the airport cheaper) and $200 for a dinner cruise I slept through. NEVER AGAIN"
Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Pros: "Restrooms clean, decent food and drink, nice cabin crew."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The attention and service!! Excellent. It was my birthday and KLM the head purser surprised me with 2 bottles of bubbles and a handwritten birthday card KlM and the crew of this flight thank you very much !"
Cons: "Nothing to say"
Pros: "The attendants took great care of us. Super smooth flight."
Pros: "Wifi on Board"
Pros: "Fairly nice flight. 7 hours AMS to JFK. They had ice cream cones for us mid flight and an after dinner cognac if you wished."
Cons: "Not a big fan of paying for a few extra inches of leg room in a better seat after paying for a ticket."
Pros: "Left ontime and service was excellent."
Pros: "expedited check in with nice staff. Security staff were pleasant, and the entire check in process for everything was easy"
Cons: "there was no lounge close to our departure gate"
Pros: "Food was good and crew members were very nice"
Cons: "My check in luggage was in very bad condition when I receive it. My clothes were all wet and they got bab by each other’s colour. Many clothes are not in a condition to wear now. Those were expensive and I had a big loss because of that."
Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Everting so good ex"
Cons: "Boarding was a free for all. The travelers did not pay attention to the priorities."
Cons: "Bag was lost"
Pros: "Just great crew."
Cons: "Not comfortable at all and will not book KLM again."
Pros: "The food was excelent"
Cons: "I have to pay to pay a little more confort"
Pros: "Entertainment was good, and crew was very nice and accommodating. Flight was very comfortable and smooth."
Cons: "The food was okay, not that great."
Cons: "Didn't allow my carry on. Said too big. Same bag was on earlier connecting flight on much smaller plane. Also on flight on Southwest week prior. But larger intercontinental flight wouldn't allow it."
Pros: "Airline staff good and professional"
Cons: "Nothing one can do, for a 6.2" guy, the metal bar that forms the shape for the pouch for magazines and such digs into knees, ESP if person in front adjusts seat back. Fold out table barely accommodates laptop."
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to fog, but the staff was amazingly helpful to make sure everyone got to their destination."
Pros: "Jet airways flight till mumbai"
Cons: "Poor legspace in Klm flight till Amsterdam"
Pros: "Efficiency and speed of boarding was acceptable. I have no complaints about that aspect. The Comfort+ seats were worth the upgrade, pretty comfortable and reasonable legroom unless you have a big carry on stowed under the seat in front of you."
Cons: "The first announcement they made to all of us in the economy section was thay they did not have any headphones for anyone but business class. I was told when I booked the seat that the headphones would be complementary. So I did not bother to bring any assuming they were going to keep their word; I figure I'd make it work and watch a movie without sound. If that isn't bad enough midway through my nine hour flight my monitor went out and would not turn back on."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, and the food was better than the usual KLM fare."
Cons: "The "new" seats were hard and uncomfortable. Avoid any kinds of seats near the bathroom in a configuration with 3 abreast next to the windows. The "aisle" seat is essentially a "waiting area" for the rest room."
Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliablity."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."
Pros: "KLM fed a sandwich even though the flight was only 2 hours. The crew was pleasant. Getting through the Amsterdam airport to catch a connecting flight with only an hour to do so was no big deal. Airport staff was pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "Great smooth flight staff was pleasant and the overall experience was fantastic."
Pros: "For an 8 hr flight...multiple snacks, 2 meals and continuous beverage service. Blanket, pillow amd movies."
Cons: "Watched flight attendant drop tongs on floor, pick them up and put them back in the bowl of buns and continue to use them to serve bums"
Pros: "Flight unpleasant. Ground staff in Marseiile great but gate crew didn't control carry on baggage and many of us could not use overhead bins because of passengers who stowed more than one and often oversized suitcases above, so we and many others had to place carry on suitcases under seat. Attendant on plane totally unhelpful and could have rearranged a few bags to make room but preferred to stay in back of plane and talk. To be fair, rest of flight was pleasant although late due in part to boarding issues."
Cons: "Carry on baggage issues and storage on plane. One aloof and unhelpful member of flight crew."
Cons: "I slept didn't have snack offered and no entertainment"
Pros: "Short flight friendly crew"
Cons: "Good flight nothing to complain about. Was spoiled by the entertainment choices on the longer flights."
Pros: "Newer plane. Dimming windows, upgraded bathroom. Flight crew very pleasant."
Cons: "Boarding wasn't announced. Limited in flight movie selection. Food was average. Same dessert for both meals served."
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "First leg of our trip on British air on a smaller plane with lots of comfort and room. Our 2nd and long leg was on a larger and newer plane. Leg room and room for the tray table was so tight and uncomfortable for a long Flight. Paid extra for end seating and using British air for transfers through Heathrow as an American Air partner. Will try to avoid the extra cost in the future."
Pros: "Great crew—really great"
Cons: "Entertainment screen hard to view. It’s low def. and not bright"
Pros: "Everything was great the crew, on time arrival, food and so on"
Cons: "The entertainment screen on my wife's seat was broken and it would not keep straight up."
Pros: "Crew was so nice and seats were comfortable"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful in adjusting my flights. The lack of information on passport policies from kayak have made me disappointed on this company and I will not be using it or recommending it in the future. I had to spent over 300$ in hotels and gas to get to Miami to obtain a new passport."
Cons: "The booking services that kayak offered were not helpful at all. When I booked my flights to Spain the website should have alerted me that I needed a passport with an expiration date of over 3 months. Kayak should have information on travel policies to the countries they offered flights to."
Pros: "Nothing to like at all."
Cons: "There is no food even water at international flight!!! Terrible service."
Pros: "This trip I used BA and Virgin Atlantic business class. I would rate AA had the best layout of business class. AA I WOULD LOVE TO FLY IN BUSINESS CLASS ON YOU 777-300 Any where. Bonus: Bose noise canceling headphones. BA and VA did not have the quality head phones as AA did"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Poor food offerings, no entertainment, minimal leg room, rushed and cramped boarding process."
Pros: "This is my first and last time taking British Airways. When I was boarding the flight. The flight attendant literally stood in the aisle in front of me talking to a patron. Instead of moving into the empty seat and letting the rest of us move to our seat. He refused and ignored us. As we waited,the captain made a brash announcement and the plane started moving. Twenty patrons included me were not seated. I never had a plane move when we were not seated. I have to squeeze by flight attendant to get into my seat. No courtesy. He didn’t care about me at all. I had a carry on and a baggage. How could he not care about the rest of the people who was standing Experience. To make it worst, I got sick from the pasta and spent to hours with stomach cramps, heats sweats, and nauseous. Will never do again."
Cons: "They have the most inefficient boarding pass that literally turns into a mob madness."
Pros: "Good crew!"
Cons: "No complimentary coffee or soft drinks! No entertainment!"
Cons: "Very bad smell, pass landing"
Pros: "There was NO water in a 4+ hour flight unless you pay!!"
Cons: "Non of the three bottles I asked for on duty free were onboard It is apauling that food & drinks have to be bought in such a long flight including water!!!"
Pros: "The crew was phenomenal overall service good no complaints in that regard"
Cons: "My son is 6 foot 4 and it really would have been nice to have more options for more leg room that didn't cost $266 per person we were really scrunched in there and it was pretty uncomfortable for 6 or 7 hours"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight rebooking us a day later causing me over $1000 in an extra night of hotel in London, forfeited hotel night in Italy, forfeited prepaid tour as well as extra hotel night for friends meeting us."
Pros: "Flight crew was top notch with few exceptions. Safe journey. Great price tag with what should have been limited connections."
Cons: "BA used to be one of my three favorite airlines, especially the international. Sat on tarmac for over 2 hours because no one thought to load luggage of a couple hundred people or de-ice the wings for the sprinkle of snowflakes that terrified London. Cancelled our first flight to London a few hours before we were to leave home and after two hours on the phone, we were instructed to cancel our remaining flights and purchase a connecting flight to our destination ON OUR OWN DIME with the hope BA May reimburse. Had to fly into another COUNTRY, pay for our own hotel room and transfers and got to our final destination a day later, with only crossed fingers BA will take care of some of those expenses or at very least reimburse for the cancelled flight. They Lost our luggage on the way home because of a 2-hour delay (tarmac story above^), because they involved 3 airlines in their efforts to help us connect back home. Staff and crew we saw face to face were great to help...though not all customers shared that experience as we witnessed. Administratively, based on our 2 weeks of multi-country travel with them, BA seems to have lost the ability to manage themselves. 2.5 hour flight from Rome to London has terrible service and we had to ask for water to drink. Everything else was paid...I’m accustomed to that on regionals Euro commuter flights but very surprising on a full-fledged BA plane covering that distance. So many extra inches given to the thirty folks in first and business that commoners get sardine seats across the pond to America. That being said, the seats themselves are plenty comfortable withthe exception of arm rests that do not fully position upright. BA used to make you feel incredibly fortunate to fly with them. Now, I appreciate the crew who worked very hard to make-up for such an ugly delay on the ground and in baggage and flightbmanagement. The rest left me with a migraine."
Pros: "Fsst board to front of plane."
Pros: "Free wine and drinks with dinner"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for two hours. One hour on the tarmac. Missed the connecting flight to Munich and even though there were two flights BA could have booked us on while in the air they did not. We had to stand in a long queue 1.5 hrs to change our flight to the last one out and arrived at 10pm instead of 2pm. Also, the dreamliner Economy seating is a nightmare. Sardines thats what passengers are to BA. Never again."
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "I had a flight from Atlanta to London with a connection flight to fly to Istanbul. The first flight was fine and smooth but the second was just terrible. Upon buying and resorting to British Airwaya, it wasn't mentioned anywhere that the second flight plans do not offer complimentary soft drinks or snacks for the three hour flight after a 6 hour layover. Assuming my flight was going to feed, I didn't eat a whole lot at the airport so I didn't have to spend too much money. I declined the cart the first go around and didn't seem any too interested or sure what some of the options were. I lasted as long as I could and gave in and pulled out my credit card (not accepting cash is another disappointment because my Turkish bank account was charged by pounds) but there was nothing but one choice left and it didn't sit well in my stomach."
Cons: "Flight was delayed after arrival at Heathrow for 4 hours Baggage lost did not get it even after the end of the trip There wasn’t much of help or effort from the airlines to track baggage Even my 8 year old son said ... never board British airways"
Cons: "BA/AA seats seem to be more cramped. No room in the overhead bin, too many passengers allowed to bring huge carry-on carts + bags. Stuck sitting in the middle with my carry-on bag, handbag and winter coat, glad I didn't buy any duty-free since there would not have been any room. Food service has declined, no snacks w/drinks, only packaged chips or cookies before landing."
Cons: "Flight was no better than a low cost airline. Almost 4h flight with no food/snack and NO DRINKS."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic. It was business and the other high status groups, then everyone else. No boarding groups. For charging almost twice as much for a premium economy ticket, it would be great if we could board before economy at least."
Pros: "Great time with the cabin crew member, Sally. She made us feel welcome and entertained during the flight."
Pros: "Good staff service, good leg room."
Cons: "Could use more variety in channel options for entertainment."
Cons: "I didn't get to go. The Turks said I couldn't even change planes in Istanbul without a visa -- and they weren't issuing any."
Pros: "boarding was fine and the crew was nice."
Cons: "the leg room was terrible and charging for drinks was a first."
Pros: "My flight from Manchester was delayed so I missed my direct flight to bahrain and change of flight to deferent distantion other than my original and arrived to Bahrain next day"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Cabin crew from London to Heathrow was pleasant. Movie choice was good."
Cons: "Ordeal at Heathrow of going miles up and down, taking two transports and having to go through full security again for connecting flight. Checked in 24 hours to connecting flight to London or 30 hours prior actual flight from London. Airline indicated that plane had only one middle seat. Tried to get a better seat at airport, but BA ground crew did not even check and said flight was full. Yet my one of my fellow passengers was able to get window seat without extra pay 3 hours after I was denied. Sardine city for 7 hour flight that turned 8 hours."
Pros: "Crew, comfort, entertainment, food. All excellent"
Cons: "A fellow traveler needed to check a bag and BA charged more for the bag than we paid for the flight. They said that because the flight was not full it cost more??? Ridiculous! If flight not full she should have paid less.... Very unhappy with this policy."
Pros: "I love to fly on BA. Along with KAL, it is my favorite."
Cons: "Only problem this time was that the video monitors in the Economy class on the entire right side (Seats I-J-K) went out early in the flight and could not be repaired."
Pros: "The flight was reasonably priced."
Cons: "British Air flight attendants kept bumping into me, hitting my face with curtains, etc but never once apologized for the inconvenience. They would not provide water on a three hour flight! Their competitors provide that and a snack for similar length flights. Their boarding process is also the most chaotic I've ever experienced. I will never fly with them again."
Pros: "flight was relatively empty, and did not delay too much."
Cons: "No entertainment whatsoever. Meal is only a muffin or a cake of some sort. Waited way too long to disembark the plane."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants, comfy seats"
Cons: "No beverages service. They went right by us."
Pros: "There was something to like?"
Cons: "This was a four hour international flight from London to Istanbul. There was no in-flight entertainment system of any kind, not even audio, and there was no free food or drinks. Not even a bag of peanuts or a soda. Everything had to be paid for. And if you did wanted to purchase something, it took forever since passengers had to whip out a credit card. Cash not allowed. I have never been on an international flight that made you pay for food and drinks. When I inquired why, the reason given was that this was a "short-haul international flight". Oh, I see. British Airways is now a discount airline."
Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Service, crew, departure delay, dated vehicle"
Pros: "The flight was half full"
Cons: "The plane was half comfortable. We were charged for everything. Water, etc."
Pros: "Great service!"
Cons: "Why do I have to pay for food in an international flight? Ridiculous."
Pros: "Nothing more than ordinary."
Cons: "They charge you for everything, including water."
Cons: "Old airplane, on one chair the seatbelt didn't work, on the next chair it didn't have the cushion."
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!"
Pros: "Flight crew did a nice job and seemed to enjoy what they do."
Cons: "When you book your ticket you should be able to choose your seat without having to pony up $35 to do it, I don't understand why you have to wait until you check -in 24 hours before your flight to get a "free" seat. Food was just okay. Seats not that comfortable."
Pros: "British Air was excellent, but there was poor connectivity between them and Kayak(webjet)which left me seeking information even at the last minute"
Cons: "Lost luggage for 25% of the flight. They say this happens often. spent 3 hours at the airport filing a claim. I hope I see my suit case again"
Cons: "It was very warm on the plane. No air jets available. Steward said the plane was having an issue with air quality. I have asthma and warm conditions with out air flow made this flight very uncomfortable for me. There was a passenger in from of me that was getting overheated and nauseous."
Pros: "This was a long flight but it was made comfortable by the airline and crew. The seats weren't terrible and I was actually able to recline some. I loved the headrests that adjust to whatever height you want. I also loved the remotes with the TV screens because I've never had that before and my arm gets tired playing the games! The crew was very friendly. The food was good and many drinks were offered frequently which was nice."
Cons: "I didn't like the bathroom not being in the back of the plane. I also didn't like the movie selection. It was very small and did not have the best choices."
