Staff was not up to standard. Very rude.
The in flight services is great. However, the planes do not depart on time if they are departing from other Airports except in Doha. If you have a small window with your layover, be prepared that you might miss your connecting flight. My luggage was delayed because their departing flight from a non-Doha Airport was late to arrive. Their baggage department is beyond horrible, there is no number to call and have to use Whatsapp and a reply can take more than 3 hours. I had to track the luggage by going the Atlanta International Airport and wait 3 hours for a manager with Qatar airways to first board a flight and then to get my luggage, since they do not have anyone in baggage services. For this I will never fly Qatar Airways ever again.
Disorganized and lacking courtesy in Nairobi JKIA. Business travelers counter not displayed. We paid about $5000 for return tickets because they rudely locked us out saying “you are late.” They had sent us for a new 24 hour COVID test having rejected the 72 hour we had. We did not understand their logic because passengers were still in line. We were in line from 4pm, the flight was after midnight. At PHL, being American citizens, we were not required to present a 24 hour C test! We feel robbed!
Services were excellent and given on time.
Pros: "Services are the best"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. very helpful and great services."
Cons: "While waiting in the check-in line, it would be better if one of the crew would come and ask the travellers if they have got everything. cause I had my Covid test and it was negative. However, they said that my final destination place won't accept my test. rather me waiting on the line that was not moving ahead at all, I could have sort things out some way. So, it would be nice if the crew would come to the passenger on the line just to make sure they have everything right."
Pros: "I really loved the food and the attendants were super friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Excellent Cabin services."
Cons: "don't know of anything"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic, the plane felt nicer than most other airlines, and the meals were great, even in coach"
Cons: "The Nairobi airport experience could use a bit of help. there's no a/c and even late at night, it was uncomfortably hot everywhere. Once I'd checked in to the gate I was trapped and couldn't easily leave to get water or go to the restroom, which was increasingly annoying as my flight was delayed. Pretty sure all of this is beyond Qatar Airways' ability to control."
Pros: "yes. great travel and crew"
Pros: "Qatar airlines treated us like we were in first class the flight attendants were A+++"
Cons: "Everything was perfect other than the food was not so great i had stock ache the entire flight."
Pros: "Entertainment and food is always great with Qatar!"
Cons: "After I got in my seat an Islamic lady came and said that I was in her seat. I looked at her ticket and while it was the right seat number, she was on the wrong flight. I got a stewardess to help her. She had gone through 3 boarding pass checks and was still on the wrong flight. They let her fly!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and delightful."
Cons: "The crew was amazing and delightful but should provide food to kids first before even those special diet or vegetarians."
Pros: "Crew was great. TV Entertainment system was excellent."
Pros: "Everything ,good service ,friendly crew affordable rates"
Pros: "Extra leg room only coz I was on exit isle"
Cons: "Entertainment is poor. Very few selections on black movies and music. Mostly Arabic and Indians. Food was alright"
Pros: "Everything frim the xrew I could at the JKIA, NBO to Delhi. One thing more from my city Lubumbashi, I didn't care about getting my phone bzttery low. I could chzrge my phone all the journey long. And from Nairobi, I dodn't czre at zll about my phobe, because I knew I could charge dur to the usb device. If ever something to complain about, I'll let you know. Regards Richzrd DIAS"
Pros: "Service was great for such a long flight. It would be good to have like a snack bar for people to purchase snacks."
Cons: "The wedsite for Qatar could use some work."
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "Horrible flight experience and old planes without USB plug inn and no seat entertainment"
Pros: "Service is courteous, both on the ground and air. Food & entertainment was top-notch as well. Enjoyed my flight, again on Qatar!"
Cons: "Boarding process, Smart Phone App, food quality, Announcemebts, Time to unboard the plane, flight information displays at Doha are not easy to find the flight info"
Pros: "All the services plus the entire team"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Small single aisle plane No wifi, no power ports, no individual screens Qatar is great about serving water but not other drinks -- I bought drinks inside security but there was another round of security at the gate -- they confiscated all of the drinks I bought"
Cons: "I missed my flight from Nairobi to Melbourne then the airlines asked for penalties and fare difference which in total was much higher than booking a fresh one way flight. I felt that the crew at Nairobi airport handled the situation pretty well however, the staff at the Nairobi reservation office were a bit cold and not very helpful."
Pros: "La mejor atención, buena comida, comodidad, confiabilidad, pilotaje, tranquilidad"
Cons: "Podrían tener más películas con subtítulos en español, jugos mas conocidos y la música mejor organizada para búsqueda"
Pros: "Great cabin crew"
Cons: "Crappy old style recliner seats in business class for a 6 hour flight. Not consistent with the Qatar brand"
Pros: "Food, seat OK, crew excellent"
Cons: "Immigration at Doha is appalling. More than 75 minutes waiting and very understaffed."
Pros: "It was comfortable flight with a friendly crew."
Cons: "They re issued my boarding pass Doha, for Dallas flight and gave us the last seat on the plane, even though I chosed the seat at the time of booking. Food was ok, but when we asked for the chicken they didn’t had it. It’s an international flight of 15 hours with food shortage???"
Pros: "Very friendly crew. Plenty of food and options. Always coming by with snacks, or towels, or drinks."
Cons: "Seat width is always an issue in economy, but nothing unexpected."
Pros: "Boarding was very ease and helpful for my family while I was traveling with kids I appreciate that fact that customer service at boarding was reached out to my wife to help and make us feel great thru the process thanks"
Cons: "No comment"
Pros: "Crew are great and entertainment options are good."
Cons: "The seats are quite uncomfortable and small. Really struggled to get comfortable."
Pros: "Everything else"
Cons: "Too much air condition... cold!!"
Pros: "Overall OK food not all that up to the mark"
Cons: "3 out of 4 bags did not arrive even after 1 day of journey completion"
Cons: "my breakfast was nasty and when i ask the crew who served me she was rude! i didnt eat my meal !"
Pros: "Even in coach the service is great. The crew is professional and courteous. Food is great too!"
Pros: "I can understand what kind of flight it was because it was a small plane"
Cons: "Bad smells and an old plane i hope you will change the plane to another better one"
Pros: "Staff was very friendly and food was very good."
Cons: "Older plane, TV screens in the ceiling, only bathrooms at the rear of the plane."
Cons: "JKIA airport was terrible. Staff were late to come to the check in counters. Why can't they be there earlier than one hour so we don't have to stand in line for so long with our bags. Totally shambolic affair."
Pros: "Qatar is not glitzy. Better than that, it was straightforward and relaxed and comfortable. Crew was pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "The crew was professional and friendly. The flight was on time."
Cons: "The plane was not as clean as the one from Doha to New York. The first movie that was played was inappropriate for children under 16 years old."
Expected turbulence but captain navigated the flight expertly around the storm and got us to final destination early. The crew is always so friendly, great experience.
I followed all airport, tsa & delta staff regulations. They charged me a fortune. $750 to check luggage which went to Baltimore without me. I need two of those bags sent to Atlanta now. I will be on hold for an hour with them trying to resolve this. I will be flying home on America or United
Better management of the boarding line and the crew should check for trash more often
Flight crew was friendly and professional
Pros: "Old aircraft showing its age."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and smooth flight"
Cons: "No entertainment option was avail except WiFi (T-Mobile) which wasn’t free"
Pros: "Flying Delta’s always a treat after our KLM connection. Everything is better! The staff in particular are always outstanding in comparison. Great job guys! :-)"
Cons: "Really not much. A few more media entertainment options perhaps."
Pros: "all good"
Cons: "Missed the flight due to the sheer unhelpfulness and incompetence of the gate personnel. They would not let me board, since I was about 10 minutes late. THEN THE PLANE WAS DELAYED FOR ABOUT 2 HOURS!!! I was stranded in NY, overnight, and had to pay hundreds of dollars for a train ticket and a cab."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "It would have been better if the flight wasn’t 3 hours late."
Pros: "The check in counter personnel was VERY UNHELPFUL. I was running late to previous Delta flight baggage delay. The counter person would not let me check in even though I still had good 45 mins before take off. AND THE PLANE WAS DELAYED BY 40 MINUTES ANYWAY! I never made the flight, had to take train."
Cons: "The entire Delta customer service was a nightmare. Delayed flights, literally lying supervisor who escalated a dispute, absurdly poor service. ASSISTING A PASSENGER WITH A TRANSFER TO ANOTHER DELTA FLIGHT AFTER THE FIRST ONE WAS DELAYED IS "NOT A GUARANTEED SERVICE". Seriously, it is basic courtesy!"
Pros: "The flight was on time and quick."
Cons: "the number of kids......not too fond. :/"
Cons: "If there could have been some sort of services to take travelers to their connecting flight, for cases of really short time window of course, it’d be extremely helpful."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Everything was great."
Pros: "I always appreciate in-flight television even on short flights."
Cons: "Very tight seating."
Pros: "Everything was great everyone was fantastic. F"
Pros: "Not sure why this flight was delayed inbound. But it made the departure late by over 30 minutes."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable and didn’t mind staying with the back upright. Flight attendants veery friendly and boarding was fast and easy."
Cons: "Headrest was too short and there’s no seat back screen. More communication from the cockpit at the end would have been nice. Announcements were very hard to hear over the background plane noise."
Cons: "Never told why we were delayed by more than 90 minutes"
Pros: "The Delta Help Desk at the airport was actually pretty helpful for the times I had to use them."
Cons: "Flight was delayed....3 times(more?) from late at night to early morning the next day. Delta Help Desk rescheduled me and got me a room at Howard Johnson’s for the night. Called HoJo’s to confirm they had non-smoking rooms available. Got on the hotel’s shuttle bus and the driver announced that HoJo was full and all voucher holders would go to Rodeway Inn but those without vouchers would go to HoJo....huh!?? Called HoJo and the same person I’d spoken to 20 mins prior said it was correct, that Rodeway was a sister property. The Rodeway Inn Metro Airport is pretty disgusting. This is my opinion after coming from remote Mexico and extensive travel in Africa. It should be torn down. Delta/HoJo should not send customers there."
Pros: "Everyone was friendly and got us to our destination"
Cons: "No food, no outlets, a terrible delayed not explained to passengers."
Pros: "Nothing.. the entire experience was horrible. Nasty seat. Had to get rebooked 3 times to finally get home but had to fly into a different airport and you also lost my bag so I have nothing to wear to my father's funeral."
Cons: "Everyrhing. the entire experience was horrible. Nasty seat. Had to get rebooked 3 times to finally get home but had to fly into a different airport and you also lost my bag so I have nothing to wear to my father's funeral"
Cons: "Unexplained delays, lack of transfer services (there was no separate connections security screening; passengers were required, after a redeye flight and customs, to switch floors and stand in long lines with general security. Also, no beverages of any kind were offered."
Cons: "The airline booked us on two flights from SLC to BWI. Unfortunately, our seats on our original connection were released so when we arrived at our gate our only option was to split up and take middle seats - even though we had paid over $100 ea. for upgrades. Delta offered nothing for this. One of the flight attendants was in a terrible mood - she was cold and rude and would not even look at passengers - which her fellow crewmates noticed and tried to compensate for."
Pros: "The staff was wonderful and the flight was smooth"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Seat was very cramped and I want able to be comfortable at all. I couldn't even sit back I the seat!"
Cons: "JFK was depressing but not Delta’s problem."
Pros: "Delta is not a good place to be"
Cons: "Delta is not good on customer service"
Pros: "Snacks & beverages on a 1 hour flight. Very nice crew"
Cons: "Older plane, no entertainment"
Pros: "Kyle was our flight attendant. He was great. Attentive the whole trip and served us water and snacks."
Pros: "I missed my flight and was not able to rebook any of it, losing 600 dollars..."
Pros: "I am 6’3” and have difficulty with leg room on planes. Staff help me out by moving my son and I to Comfort seating row."
Pros: "Where the flight attendants on my AeroMexico portion were authentically compassionate, the flight attendants for delta were superficial. The flight attendant,while serving us drinks, started saying what great passengers we were but her flight from Dallas the day before was definitely a feeling the effects of the full moon. This was our first interaction with a flight attendant. She had no basis for saying we were great and as we didn't have a relationship other than ordering drinks she had no basis for complaining about her Dallas to us. She would leave it to us that she was being put upon by the customers that she was getting paid to serve. Where the Aeromexico flight attendant genuinely enjoyed serving her customers."
Cons: "They forced everyone in the third zone to check our hand carry and there was no entertainment."
Cons: "Terrible staff"
Cons: "Whatever hack airline you are contracting with to do shuttle flights is terrible. Both the flight itself and the customer handling. If I ever see the option "operated by endeavor air" I am avoiding at all costs."
Pros: "very little"
Cons: "Could they make sears smaller? The plane was really old too."
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "The economy plus wasn't nearly as nice as any other airlines. It gave the least amount of extra leg room and the only other amenity they gave was a toothbrush. Even United economy plus is bigger. Plus if you want to change anything you have to pay include just to try and go stand by on an earlier flight."
Pros: "Had a chance to download the entertainment app during layover, so could take advantage of movies available on second flight. Crew still good; gate attendants friendly; snacks/drinks readily available."
Pros: "Comfortable seating and roomy"
Pros: "Excellent flight crew, good selection of snacks, excellent seat and leg room."
Cons: "Lavatory was unusually smelly no charging port"
Pros: "Delta is definitely the jewel of commercial airlines. I understand making money depends on how many bodies you can transport at one time. But as a large man the seat size and leg room could be improved. I unfortunately cant afford first class to remedy this problem."
Pros: "Getting on board was smooth and efficient. Service was friendly on flight. Arrived on time."
Cons: "Not applicable."
Cons: "My flight from ATL to BWI was horrible. It was not a Delta plane. Possibly borrowed from SpiritAirlines, which is an airline I will never fly again even if offered a free flight. That's how strongly I feel about their planes and service. I was seated in a 2across row where the seats were small and my knees were jammed into the seat in front of me the entire flight. I'll grant you I am a big girl at 6' 250 however the first leg of my flight from FLL to ATL which WAS on a Delta plane, was fine. I did not feel smashed into the seat. For the money, I feel like I am due more than being locked into the seat unable to move more than 1/2 inch for an entire flight. Thankfully the flight was under 2 hours."
Cons: "After checking in at a kisok I had to wait in a huge line for over 20 minutes just to drop the bag. This the second time I have had this experience with them."
Pros: "Nothing to speak of. Nothing exceptional from any other airline - basic"
No food at all. Pretzels were a month expired so they were stale. Wifi is hit or miss and only works twice after an ad.
The flight delay was tiring but once we started boarding, that went smoothly and quickly. The plane was comfortable with loads of overhead space. Being a short flight, there was minimal interaction with the crew.
Boarding went fine, the plane was clean, and the crew was very friendly. Seats were a bit cramped, but that seems to be typical on all airlines anymore. Cookies and pretzels were offered as were beverages - the usual. I’d fly American again.
Pros: "The pilot gave all the information pleasantly. It was easy to find my seat and everyone was compliant with COVID-19 rules/restrictions."
Cons: "Boarding process could’ve been a bit quicker. There should be free accessible WiFi for everyone."
Pros: "Crew amazing!!!"
Cons: "Better maybe in giving drinks every once in a while like they use to."
Cons: "Flight attendants need to enforce all policies. It makes no sense to enforce a seat being leaned back a 1/2 inch but allow a Face Mask be worn as a Chin Guard through the entire flight instead wearing it properly!"
Cons: "The seats were tiny! I'm a big woman, but not a huge one and I struggled to get my belt on. Considering how nice their seats are, this is one of the smallest seats I've ever sat in!"
Pros: "The crew was great and provided a quiet environment for the red eye flight."
Cons: "The boarding process needs to be reevaluated. Perhaps the plane should be boarded from the rear to the front or from window to aisle seat. These suggestions would streamline the boarding process."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hrs"
Pros: "Awesome Customer Service"
Pros: "Easy flight. Free drinks and snacks. Nice crew."
Cons: "No individual entertainment. Do not help those that are AA members"
Cons: "There was room for my carry on, although they said it was full and cheked it"
Pros: "Courteous crew and staff"
Cons: "Check bags online for all flights"
Cons: "the fact they changed my schedule and had to come in earlier customer service was awful and my luggage came back dirty and the best response was that the belts are dirty and i can expect wear and tear. not only that i had to book myself an earlier trip to pay the standby fee so i can leave the same time my brother left tsa screening had us wait 20 min before we move in the line for the fact no worker was there but one guy and i was the last person to board the plane after almost missing closing gates my expierence was awful and disrespectful"
Cons: "Over 45 mins for bags to get on the belt ? Ridiculous. Won’t fly with AA again"
Pros: "Teeny little plane but easy (early i think!) boarding process and nice flight attendant."
Cons: "We were in quite a long line to take off and when we arrived in bmore there was no one to manage the jet bridge and we sat for a little while. Seems like these issues should be easy to solve - you know when the plane is arriving for over an hour!"
Pros: "Amazing and comfortable"
Cons: "We left a little late."
Pros: "They got us there quickly."
Cons: "Getting canned and put on a flight five hours later. Good job AA"
Pros: "I was under the weather and she was very very very helpful Mary and all AA flight attendants are great I will fly AA as often as I can because of Mary"
Pros: "-Efficient Boarding -Great flight attendants -Communicative Pilots (flight time, number in line on runway, etc)"
Cons: "Did not dislike anything on this trip."
Pros: "Got two seats to myself."
Cons: "I don't even know who our flight attendants were. Did we have them? Isn't that a requirement?? Guy in seat in front of me was super rude (yes, I know it's not the airline's fault.). Terrible turbulence (again, not AA's fault)."
Pros: "upbeat happy crew. Service of drinks was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Cramped seat room."
Cons: "We sat in Charlotte on the runway and had to run to our connection. The airport seems too small for the amount of traffic. We usually try to avoid Charlotte, but it was the only way to use frequent flyer miles"
Pros: "No problems."
Cons: "All was well."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I was told to preboard when I checked in before the flight and was told by another employee i was in group 6 and shouldnt be in line. Had to explain why I was preboarding and didn't like having to hold up the line. It was embarrassing."
Pros: "I like the ease of boarding and the offer of complimentary check-in if the bags. I assume it was because the flight was fully booked. Overall I was pleased."
Cons: "The entertainment could be better during the flight. I also don’t remember being offered any snacks during the flights either."
Pros: "Crew was outstanding"
Cons: "Hurried beverage service since arriving early. R"
Pros: "flight crew on my way to BWI were great!!!"
Cons: "american airlines does not care about the privacy of their passengers. even after several calls my information wasn't updated correctly and my flight confirmation was passed along to members who weren't even traveling. there was no in flight entertainment and in order to pick seats together i needed to pay extra (i thought i was flying with american not spirit) apparently the only way i can be helped is writing a letter to customer service which they will review within 10 business days. THANKS american for starting a war in my family and ruining my trip. unfortunate the crew is so awesome but the customer service is mortifying, rude, inconsiderate and completely mechanical. i dont ever intend on flying with them again unless necessary."
Cons: "Told me that if I checked my carry on bag at gate, I'd be able to pick bag up from from the gate at the other end. Instead it went to baggage claim with took more than 30 minutes."
Cons: "The departure was delated more than 30 minutes and the arrival disembarking was to slow."
Pros: "the flight attendants were very professional on this flight. the lead attendant was very personable when giving announcements and going through the safety procedures on the public address system. the other two attendants were also very professional in their services as well."
Cons: "flight 1920 was almost an hour late with boarding. I am extremely upset because I paid an extra $75.00 on day of to get home earlier but ended up getting home at the same time that I would have on my original flight because the flight was late and I missed my shuttle because 1920 was late boarding. I should be reimbursed SOMETHING for my inconvenience...especially after paying $75.00 extra for an earlier flight."
Pros: "The plane was new and nice looking"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. The crew was rude . Seats were not assigned until boarding NPILWL3B. Of course they give you the worst seats."
Pros: "THE SEATS WERE COMFORTABLE AND CREW AND VERY ATTENTIVE."
Pros: "the flight was great and comfortable"
Pros: "Short flight. The crew was nice. The food and entertainment should be Not applicable because it's a short flight - I was not expecting it."
Cons: "Boarding was late, very small carry on compartment - maybe because it's a smaller carrier. A lot of people had there carry on placed in a valet service so it took a while for them to get out because they were waiting for their carry ons."
Pros: "I liked how smooth flight went especially after all the bumpy rides I had been on"
Cons: "I didn't like that I wasn't able to sit with the person I purchased my ticket with"
Cons: "We sat on the plane for over 2 hours before takeoff. We were offered no competition other than a quick appology from the pilot."
Pros: "Got me home safe"
Cons: "1st: the gate was changed three 20 mins before boarding 2nd: we were in the plane for an hr before actually flying out"
Pros: "Roomy seat, great price"
Cons: "No ice in my water."
Pros: "The crew and the food"
Cons: "The entertaiment selection. Should get better movie, TV and news selection"
Cons: "Food could be better."
Pros: "Captain gave us good updates on delay."
Pros: "Everything. No issues."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Food was amazing too!"
Cons: "Delay time."
Cons: "The food was just okay."
Cons: "The airline changed my seats after giving me boarding passes and I had to pay to get better seats. That is no t acceptable"
Pros: "Did not realize I purchased a “no checked bag” fare - and the $60 each way charge really pissed me off, along with the &48 charge to guarantee a window seat again, each way. The site was misleading, and I resent being peneluzed for trying to be efficient. A two week work trip needs to include a checked bag."
Cons: "For a new plane, seats are very cramped. If you drop an earpiece on the floor, you pull a muscle to retrieve it / or make. Everyone in your row stand up. Decent movies mean a box under the seat cuts into legroom. A cramped, miserable 7 hours for this 6’0 tall American. Staff was as helpful as they could be, but my knees still hurt."
Pros: "The in flight services met my expectations."
Cons: "We were informed at the Nairobi check in that our tickets had been suspended because of possible risk of fraud. Attempts to resolve this promptly were not successful. For a first time traveler to the UK, this created unnecessary anxiety and gave us the feeling that the agency appointed to check us in are not supportive. We were eventually sorted but this is not nice at all given the fact that payments went through and tickets were issued and no one informed us of any issues until we got to the airport. Some feedback would be appreciated."
Cons: "Sat near the back. Pre dinner drinks ran out before they got to us. When they came back with more, they skipped us by starting further back. We brought that to their attention and got our drinks, but they never offered drinks again."
Pros: "I liked that the flight was not full, therefore allowing additional room."
Cons: "However food choices and seat room was quite poor. By the time food service was midplane. There was only one food option."
Pros: "I travelled with two small children, we had a slight delay and the captain allowed my children into the cockpit during the wait. The crew were so friendly and helpful and my children really enjoyed the trip."
Pros: "Staff on plane were great and service was awesome."
Pros: "One aspect that was greatly appreciated was when the cabin head came over the speaker and asked everyone to please return their seat to the up right position so that everyone could enjoy their meal. When you sit in the main cabin, it's incredibly frustrating to have the person in from of you recline their seat. There is little room, and for the most part everyone is pretty selfish about that."
Cons: "The cabin crew got a little snippy. Understandable. It is a long flight."
Pros: "Flight crew was amazing! And also appreciated the envelope for the lose change going to charity"
Cons: "Lost two suitcases!!! How!!????? There should be a way to track the bags like the airline apps have."
Cons: "I can't remember a more cramped and uncomfortable flight. Missed connection on way Paris and we arrived 6 hours late. It took British airways 3 days to get our lost luggage to us. Delayed on way back, adding 4 hours to our trip because the first plane was not "serviceable" and they had to get a replacement. They arbitrarily decide who has to much carry on luggage and force you to check it last minute at the gate while letting others with same size bags take them on the plane. Certainly no better than bargain flights and possibly worse. Why pay extra? No more British Airways for us."
Cons: "Lost my seat assignment, got middle seat"
Pros: "Ice cream"
Cons: "Seat too cramped"
Pros: "The crew was helpful"
Cons: "The seat space .It is very uncomfortable to have the person in front of you in your lab for 8 hours. Continued with Icelandair home and much more space."
Pros: "The flight from London to BWI is convenient for people who live in PG County"
Cons: "The food and environment on the flight are boring"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "You can’t pay to pick a seat"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Service was poor, flight attendants were rude."
Pros: "Overall, I had a very good experience."
Cons: "It would have been nice to have more leg room. When the passenger in front of me put her seat back I was stuffed like a canned sardine. Luckily, the plane was not full so we were able to spread out a bit."
Pros: "Very rapid flight. Landed far before scheduled arrival(at least 25 minutes). Checked baggage was delivered before schedule arrival time. Crew was pleasant/helpful."
Cons: "Flight was changed from what was originally scheduled and purchased. I was informed of the change after the purchase before traveling. Thus I had 4 1/2 hours between flights."
Pros: "Boarding was seamless and straightforward"
Cons: "Crew - Mostly men that looked like they hated their jobs. They were mostly unfriendly, and getting any of them to crack a smile was like pulling teeth."
Cons: "On arrival to Heathrow we sat on the tarmac for an hour and a half as apparently there was not enough staff to connect the plane to the gate.The computers to tell us where our connecting flights were, were down so they could not tell us which gate to go to. When we finally disembarked, I was not allowed to my gate despite it being in the same terminal and having 40 mins to go.I was directed to a BA desk to get another flight. After 15mins waiting here the staff were rude and announced they would be closing. I finally was directed to departures to be told the only option was the same time tomorrow. Terrible journey!"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. I found out as I was entering Nairobi Airport. The British Airways staff at JKIA were clueless regarding what to do with 200 passengers. It was chaotic, with no one appearing to know what options were available. It was a long night, and if my wife had not re-booked me on another flight out, I might still be there. Terrible customer service."
Cons: "Sitting near the bathroom. Felt BA should have paid us for the seats"
Cons: "Cancelled the flight with no explanation. This is the second time in a row my return flight to BWI from LHR has been cancelled."
Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "One crew member did not care for us at all. Did not bring the water and coffy we asked."
Pros: "Lots of space. Decent food."
Pros: "Overall, the food, cabin crew, entertainment, and the air travel were excellent."
Cons: "The landing at BWI was a little scary."
Cons: "Mediocre aircraft, dismissive crew. Nothing surprising from BA to be quite honest I shall continue to lower my expectations."
Pros: "Accomodating to children on board. Empty seat next to us. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Food was pathetic. We used to get 2 meals on a transatlantic flight. This time we got a mini marshmallows bar for the second meal and no choice but curry for the first."
Cons: "flight was cancelled and they abandoned us"
Pros: "Loved everything but the inflight entertainment."
Cons: "My inflight entertainment system was "flakey". The sound would go on and off. I could not hear the movie, most of the time. The flight attendant gave me a second set of ear phones, but clearly it was the unit of my seat that was broken or intermittently functioning. It made for a very long flight as it was daytime and I could not sleep with the passenger group so active. Ironically, on the BA flight over the book I was listening to on the entertainment system would stop and then now resume where it left off so I had al lot of trouble listening to that one, too. I am not a complainer and the crew was busy with the daily flight activities. I would not rank the over all enjoyment of this flight very highly as that is a long time to be bored. Unfortunately this was my first round trip to London with British Air and I have to say that it did not compare well to the several flights I have has on Virgin Atlantic. My travel mate made the reservations with BA when I had researched and selected VA. I think in the future I would go back to traveling on VA."
Pros: "Helpful staff nice attitudes, Boarding was excellent, as I needed special help. ditto on arrival."
Cons: "Seats are too hard on the human back!"
Pros: "Civility in the boarding process, bathroom cleanliness and on time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Poor entertainment system and choice. Some parts of the main cabin were dirty. As an asthmatic, I tend to be quite sensitive to dust etc. The age of the plane. Some of the flight attendants seemed not as friendly on request of some, not all, service."
Pros: "Crew on BA0229 was terrific and attentive the entire flight."
Pros: "We were in coach. They would not allow us to take any water on board the plane unless we were in business or first class. Really wierd. This was a night flight, so we slept most of the way.."
Cons: "I know this was economy but the seats are the tightest of any other airline. We were all practically on top of each other for a relatively long flight."
Cons: "we were in the back of the plane and by the time the dinner got to our row we had no choice- no chicken and only a pasta/cheese dish and I am dairy intolerant! No other choices were offered- not even a snack!"
Pros: "The flight staff gave great and courteous service"
Cons: "My flight partner and I were separated in our seating! We did finally talked to other passengers and got to sit together"
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "British airways will not allow us to check in online. We had to do it at the desk before the flight. We had some problems getting seats together."
Pros: "food and drink service in flight entertainment crew was courteous and professional"
Cons: "seats were very small for a translant flight no personal air vents in overhead extremely long baggage offload at destination poor customer service options. I called BA while in the UK to discuss a possible flight change, and they were completely useless"
Pros: "New plane is shiny; entertainment system is an upgrade."
Cons: "No bathroom in Economy Plus; the 2-3-2 seating arrangement in E+ is a downgrade from the 2-2-2 of the 767; the windows that don't seem to fully block the sun."
Pros: "Amount of entertainment was good"
Cons: "Audio jacks always seem to have issues"
The stewardess was cheerful and always had a smile!!!!!
Cons: "The air conditioning"
Pros: "The flight attendants were fabulous on this flight."
Cons: "Older plane that showed lots of grime from past travelers. The seats in my row had old spills that seemed to have run down the backs of the seats and dried over. Gross!"
Pros: "Flying with Lufthansa as usual was another great experience! The staff at Pearson was helpful. The crew was awesome. Overall happy. But NOT with Kayak."
Cons: "The booking with Kayak was a disappointment! After booking, kayak informed me that I will receive confirmation from LH. I did. There it said 1 piece of luggage is free. However, at the airport I was told that bc I booked with Kayak there are other regulations. The LH receipt where it said FREE didn't count. I paid 60$ per luggage per person. I was mislead!"
Cons: "No more seats, rescheduled for the next day. poor service"
Pros: "They got me home"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2-3 times with no explanation. The food in the gate was trash . After boarding we waited on board for over a hour before take off , during which time someone was duct taping the inside of the plane together and I sat on a broken seat . The single flight attendant refused to take trash from people who didn’t finish their beverage . While the plane was reversing there was a huge bang and the plane shook as if we hit something . I observed gate agent repeatedly tell customers that she couldn’t help them find out if their flight was delayed and to just look at the computer board ."
Pros: "Politeness of crew. The employee at Toronto was able to change my middle seat to aisle as requested. My original seat was aisle but it was changed and I found out in Boston."
Cons: "That it was cramped. I was on a 4seat row, aisle, but I had the man next to me encroaching on my leg and arm space"
Cons: "Seats were cramped and toilet was wet and stinky"
Pros: "Flight wasn't crowded and it was a quiet one."
Pros: "the hostesses were friendly. safe flight"
Cons: "they always start at first class with drinks and food , by the time they reach further back your flight is half over, can they not do one cart from front and one from back. I realize we were not in first class but please don't ignore us"
Pros: "We had experienced two schedule changes during the last trip. First, our first outbound leg was canceled , and second, our first inbound flight was late. CA customer service was helpful in both cases. We were given alternatives and accommodations . It's upsetting to know we had to make unfortunate changes before/during our trip, it's comforting to know that CA is there to help."
Cons: "Last minute schedule change"
Pros: "Upgraded to business class."
Cons: "Power outlet's didn't work"
Cons: "There was only one staff working at the gate, and one family with kids seemed somehow stuck with their documents. This kept all other passengers,who had already Lined up, waiting for quite a while. Some people grew impatient."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Flight was cold, movie and tv choices were poor."
Pros: "I love the new Boeing 787 planes! This was the smoothest flight ever, both from Vancouver to Tokyo and back again. The new planes have the dimmable windows, which are so cool! And, each seat has it's own screen with free movies, TV, flight info, etc. Also, the flights were on time!"
Pros: "Friendly staff, decent food"
Cons: "Premium Economy seats didn't have leg rests"
Pros: "Pearson Airport puts the puddle jumper flights at the far, far, far end of the airport. That makes some sense."
Cons: "There's only one choice for refreshments, unless you count the cracker-amd-nuts machine. The seats are terrible. The assumption seems to be that no one waits long, but the experience proves the opposite, as wind, construction, security clearance for flight crews and who knows what else (any excuse will do) creates delays of more than an hour for people who end up standing along the walls and sitting on the floor waiting. Again, crews and ground staff for AC are not able to give accurate instructions or guidance for boarding flights. That airport is a mess."
Cons: "My Original flight was cancelled 3 hours prior to departure. Had to wait long lines at Air Canada customer service. Due to slowness of process, was not able to take other departing flights to other close airports. Had to stay the night at hotel."
Pros: "The on board entertainment was phenomenal. My kids LOVED that they could connect and play games with each other. The gate agents in narita were the sweetest people I've come across in a long time."
Cons: "Air Canada is pretty dang snobby for the most part. Im not sure when a rule was instituted that headphones can't be worn under 10000 feet, but my three children were targeted many times about their headsets... on the ear, boring kid headsets... and there were THREE adults around us wearing similar headsets that were not bothered. I am a single mother of three tired children and we were settling in for a long flight and I found the treatment very unnecessary and discriminatory. The food was pretty awful, lol. We ordered kids meals and none of my kids ate on the flight."
Pros: "Very friendly & helpful flight attendants."
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Staff was very nice"
Cons: "I always enjoy flying Porter Airlines because they give you one drink and a small snack for free. For a 5 hour flight I was surprised there wasn't anything complimentary.."
Pros: "It was a short flight."
Cons: "Passengers over a certain size should get two seats or the airline should install special seats for them. Why I or anyone else should have to endure being crammed in next to someone exceeding his seat size is indefensible."
Cons: "On both outbound and inbound trips (connecting with international flights) the flight was late. Both times the door was closed and then they informed us of the delay. I understand that smaller planes often get bumped, but on the outbound leg, a 20 minute delay on the tarmac and then not allowing us to deplane for another 15 minutes meant I missed the connecting flight."
Pros: "Very pleasant flight crew and helpful. Always had a smile."
Cons: "The boarding process at the gate. There were 8 or 9 gates crammed into a small section of the airport. Literally packed in like cattle and getting to the gate for departure was a nightmare, people had to shove and push through the crowd. Not a good experience!"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The flight was changed too often."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours. After boarding, we were stationary for another hour before take off. I was seated next to a couple with 2 children, and could hardly get any sleep. The only reason i took this flight was the arrival time. I am a physician and was sleep deprived at work the next day. Very disappointed!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly helpful."
Cons: "Problem w with bathroom not working preflight."
Pros: "They surprisingly didn't lose our bags...on this flight."
Cons: "Where to start?! Air Canada is by far the worst airline I have ever flown on. initially there was no information on what gate we were supposed to go to. The timeline of when the gate was going to be told ended up being 45 minutes later than initially projected which turned out to be an hour before the flight was supposed to take off, which didn't leave much time to make it through passport control and to the correct gate. The flight was then delayed over an hour before we were able to board. Once we boarded the flight, we were delayed again an additional hour. We finally took off and landed in Toronto to be delayed yet again before we could go to our gate. Once we go to our gate (close to 30 minutes after landing) the gate would not work and we were stuck on the plan an additional 30 minutes. What was supposed to be about a 9 hour flight turned into almost 12 hours of misery. I will never fly air canada again. The best part about air canada is how every canadian I talked to say "oh yeah, they are such a "terrible" or "shitty" airline."
Pros: "The crew tried to be nice."
Cons: "No attention. I was told that my bag was missing and was left in Rome. I was worried the whole flight."
Pros: "We arrived in Istanbul the day of the attack. Air Canada let us change our flights, no charge, no questions asked. We were able to fly through Venice and avoided the Coup attempt. Thank you Air Canada so much!"
Cons: "The hold times were long for customer service but that may have just been the times we happened to be calling and due to the attack."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for hours first without any communication, later with very unclear communication. Spent multiple hours at the airport just to have to fly out next morning at 6:30am. Wasted day, wasted night. Delays can happen, but according to the finally communicated cause this could all have been communicated early on (crew not available in Cleveland, that was two flight legs earlier)."
Pros: "I liked flying in a small plane; with few people aboard; very uncomplicated."
Cons: "Bathroom on the plane was very small; although clean there was a bad odor, not sure it was from a previous occupant, the water or something, but it was most unpleasant."
Cons: "Flight delayed more than 3.5 hours, first due to scheduling issues and then due to weather. Checked bags were left outside in pouring rain throughout delay, staff unable/unwilling to cover or move them. Not given food vouchers or any other compensation during wait, everything in the terminal closed before departure anyway. Gate changed 4 times, terminal was sweltering, like waiting in a greenhouse. Awful."
Pros: "Nothing about the airline ."
Cons: "At the bwi airport they have to agent u can talk to except u have to wait when they are boarding a flight before u can see someone at the front desk . Lost my bag and even the airport police said it's a normal thing as they get complains every day . Called a million times and they still won't give me detail info. I classify them as the worst airline I've ever used in my 30th ears of travel and if they are the only airline on earth I rather never travel"
Pros: "As opposed to my flight from Tokyo to Toronto, the return leg from Toronto to Baltimore had only one exception, which was that the flight attendant was very nice."
Cons: "From boarding (everything was late, from departure to arrival), to how the baggage carousel announcement was wrong, and up to the bus that will take us back to the parking (all the other buses: Amtrak/Marc, Long Term A, Daily Parking, Express Parking came and went for about 4 times or more but none came for Long Term B, you can see all the frustration from the other waiting passengers, including us). A lot of improvements needed from BWI airport if they want to retain their customers."
Pros: "On board facilities and service"
Pros: "Terrible, only one spot open, long lines. We missed boarding and were forced to wait 4 hours after already 10 hours travel. No help and no mercy at the custom area."
Cons: "Use all airport customs agent's desks after a large plane arrivals."
Pros: "I was landing in Montreal around 2am and my next flight wasn't until 18 hours later. I talked to the crew about suggestions for finding food, a good place to wait, and suggestions for seeing the city. They were fantastic. Suggested the 747 bus so I could see Montreal and helped point me in the right direction for where to be comfortable as I waited for the city to wake up. Thank you all so much!!"
Cons: "having to rent iPad for entertainment."
Cons: "The flight attendant call bell and the overhead lighting controls are on the touch-screen. However, there are also buttons on the arm rests. What a pain! I alone must have generated 3 or 4 flight attendant false alarms by leaning on the arm rest. Other passengers did the same. Lights were going on and off, bells chimed each time someone leaned on the buttons. How stupid an oversight. I hope the aircraft's great safety systems they talk about during the pre-flight briefing are better thought out!"
Pros: "The flight attendant was excellent and friendly and made this short flight more pleasant."
Cons: "We missed this flight due to poor planning on Air Canada's part. Then the rescheduled flight was cancelled due to weather, and then Air Canada tried to refuse to pay for our hotel expenses. We should never have missed the first flight to begin with! When we finally got on our plane two days late, I found that the seats could not fit an average sized person comfortably. My neighbors elbow was in my chest the whole time and my seat was completely broken. The entire seat actually fell off of the chair multiple times during this very short flight. Most uncomfortable flight I have ever experienced."
Pros: "The Cabin was warm and we were over an hour late leaving Toronto."
Pros: "I was lucky and got a emergency row seat without having to pay, never selected my seat so I guess no one ponied up the extra cash to do so and I lucked out."
Cons: "At Toronto International the staff was disorganized, telling people with flights 1 hr and 15 min away to skip the line at the check in counter because there wasn't enough time to wait in line. Rouge charges for baggage fee, no tv's on board (you can only rent an ipad for $10), less leg room, run out of food options often, sucks if you're in the back."
