Top 5 airlines serving Kona Intl to England
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Boarding and crew great!"
Cons: "Seats extremely narrow"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "I like that there are multiple bathrooms onboard."
Cons: "The rows are so narrow between seats that your roll on suitcase will not fit. You have no elbow room in your seat. People who live in England are very rude and would not let those of us seated in front of them to deplane. Too bad there isn’t someway to make people wait their turn."
Cons: "The service on Virgin Australia is quite poor. They are barely around. The seats are also only mediocre"
Pros: "Crew was super helpful and kind. Pesto pasta was the best airplane food I’ve ever had in coach."
Pros: "Excellent airline"
Cons: "The business seats could have been wider. I have sat on business class other airlines and the seat was a bit wider but overall still great experience"
Pros: "crew was nice"
Cons: "First time flying with a partner through Delta, so they stuck us on a Virgin Atlantic flight meaning I didn't get my free Delta check in bag (a fee of $60 each way) when I have gotten it every other flight I have ever taken with them. It was also 2 whole hours late in boarding."
Cons: "Media screens are old and miscalibrated. Selection was decent. Food is probably average for the industry which to me is worse than fast food."
Cons: "I cancelled this flight online, then I called to let them know I was getting emails, but that I had cancelled. For two days I received emails about delayed flights and now this."
Pros: "Crew were wonderful when I was nauseous from turbulence"
Pros: "As usual, punctual flight with friendly crew."
Cons: "Pity the wifi in international flights isn't complementary (or at least a basic connection like on domestic flights)."
Pros: "modern comfortable plane, in flight entertainment was good, service was outstanding."
Cons: "food was meh at best, seats in economy are tight and there is no legroom"
Pros: "food was great!"
Pros: "While seats were close together (little knee space), the plane was 1/2 full, so lots of space in adjoining seats. Nice crew."
Cons: "Delay in boarding - not clear why. Can never get the wireless entertainment system to work."
Pros: "Service, meals, friendly and attentive FAs"
Cons: "Arrived 1:10 min begore departure. Customer service reps quoted me with No Show. When asked they have no courtesy to answer. Both the rep over the phone and the rep at the airport were horrible. Did I say I was traveling business class? You could imagine the economy"
Cons: "Everything incl customer service at the airport"
Pros: "Fast boarding and nice staff. Food selection was ok"
Cons: "One item missing from menu (unavailable). Issues with entertainment system. Bathrooms lacked moisturiser which is always very helpful on long flights where the air is dry"
Pros: "Legroom, lovely staff and all round good flight"
Cons: "Staff was not concerned about anything, vague and uncaring..this was my son flying across the Atlantic idiots!! One pissed mom!!!"
Pros: "Our ticket was canceled apparently due to an error by the airline. Very unhappy about that. The airline couldn't care less."
Pros: "Free drinks! Lots of food and good entertainment. Glad to have a free blanket and headphones as well."
Cons: "Economy seating wasn’t that comfortable"
Cons: "I had to be rebooked on a later flight due to weather in London; this was obviously not the airline's fault. Because I took a later flight I missed my connection in London."
Pros: "Friendly crew, clean, well presented cabin."
Cons: "Flight was late (again). Food was very little for an international service (small packet of pretzels + savoury muffin."
Pros: "I loved how the airline crew were very accommodating. This was an awesome experience. A+++"
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Cons: "For oversea traveling, food could and should be better. For our flight from AKL to BNE, we had to pay for our soft drink!!!"
Cons: "Virgin Atlantic continues to give great service. Their lounges are way above all other airline lounges. It is difficult to get well prepared and fresh fish in lounges, but Virgin Atlantic knows how to do it."
Pros: "Francesca was the flight attende t that I had most the most interactions with was very friendly and warm."
Cons: "Seats in economy are way to small and very uncomfortable if tall. Too close to the seats in front of you. I was miserable all the way to London."
Pros: "good plane and timing"
Cons: "meal was not served according to the request and no sound support from the staff"
Pros: "The crew was excellent. Flight was quite comfortable. Nice attention to service"
Cons: "I would have appreciated another round of hot drinks."
Cons: "I always think Virgin's meals are the WORST among those of all the airlines I use. PLEASE LET THE VIRGIN COMPANY KNOW THIS FACT. The touch screen of the DVD player did not work well so it was a frustrating experience."
Pros: "The flight was late but the pilots made up most of the time"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "I liked everything, which is very uncharacteristic :)) At least compared to the big American carriers or the national European ones, VA is a gen - esthetically for sure. Clean, comfy, stylish! Will be my choice from now on."
Pros: "Food, crew and overall experience was good"
Cons: "Got assigned seats all the way in the back. They were comfortable but would have preferred better seats."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and did a great job."
Cons: "The seats were a little tight."
Cons: "Seat cushion r not soft comfortable enough. R hard. Hard My butt"
Pros: "Very comfortable and spacious seats, good air circulation and friendly crew."
Cons: "Food and wine selections were limited and only mediocre. We flew economy plus."
Pros: "Great direct flight. Quit on the plane. Plenty of time to rest and sleep"
Pros: "They were were very kind and helpful to all passengers"
Pros: "The crew of the flight were very sweet and helpful"
Cons: "When I bought my ticket I wasent informed that I needed a return ticket out of New Zealand before entering so I had to buy one super last minute and almost missed my flight"
Pros: "Crew was awesome and their service was great. I liked that they put snacks like fruit out to eat during the flight."
Cons: "The meals were terrible. I flew on VA a couple of years ago and the food was very good but it has really gone down since then."
Cons: "I couldn't rank the food or entertainment as I didn't try the food since it was for purchase only, and there was no entertainment offered."
Cons: "It wasn't clear that we would need to pay to check our luggage, especially since every international flight I have ever been on allows you a checked bag at no cost. When we got to the airport it cost us $130 each to check our bag which we were told it would have been around $50 if we had done it online ahead of time (if we knew). $130 per bag is excessive for checked luggage and we were extremely frustrated and disappointed. I like to fly Virgin when I can due to comfort but that experience left much to be desired."
Pros: "The whole flight was great quick boarding, lots of leg room, good entertainment, a USB charge port, good lighting, and the crew was very nice and helpful. I enjoyed the flight and would like to fly Virgin Atlantic more. Finally, you are the 3rd best flight, I have ever take, and the 2nd best airline I've been on. Flew Business Class on Swiss Air once to Geneva (#1) and all the flights I have had with Porter Air are comparable to your airline, but the free cookies and beverages at Porter's terminal in Toronto wonderful."
Cons: "A couple things went wrong on this trip, my checked luggage got misplaced for a day, and a nice women in baggage claim told me what was happening and a nice man handled my claim and my bag has now been returned to me. The bigger thing is my flight bas delayed taking off by 3 hours. Let me start that I would rather have a part replaced on the runway then not, safety is paramount. The fact is my flight took off 3 hours late from London (VS11), and got to my destination (BOS) 2.5 hours late. Kudos to the flight crew for getting me to my destination faster by gaining a little time. Plus, since BOSTON was my final destination it was all fine this time. But if I had had to get home to the elder person I take care of or my teenager it would been a problem. Again, I'm annoyed, but I do understand the reasons and they are valid and preferred. I have heard that airlines to keep their flight rating high, wait for planes to leave the gate on time and then do repairs on the tarmac. If this is still a SOP for airlines you should change the way the statistics are collected and figure out a way of not perpetuating this type of disincentive. This is just hypothesis on my part, and my whole trip had little negatives."
Pros: "Everything was great ! The staff very nice and the plane is absolutely amazing .."
Cons: "We paid for extra leg but there was no difference between normal and extra .."
Pros: "Virgin gave everyone meal vouchers to use at the airport during the 5 hr. delay. Also, they still offered a meal on the plane."
Cons: "I couldn't get the inflight entertainment to work. I wish they would offer devices to borrow on the plane."
Pros: "Entertainment was okay, flight crew was nice"
Cons: "After checking in my wife and I were in separate seats. I was then unable to change my seat after check in. After calling the helpline I was informed that it is impossible to change the seat after checking in until I am at the airport. No other airline has such an obscure, in efficient rule. Virgin takes pride in being a step above their competition - I didn't see it. I have flown international on Delta, American Airlines, British Airlines, United, and others and any difference in the experience was negligible."
Pros: "The cabin crew were very obliging and attentive. The seating was very reasonable for coach."
Cons: "Hand luggage was excessive and the overheads were full and the flight was not full."
Pros: "Crew brilliant but seat very tight"
Cons: "Boarding procedure slow and hectic"
Cons: "Security in Frankfurt - long lines"
Pros: "The airplane crew were very reassuring"
Cons: "Gate was changed 3 times and flight was delayed 2 times too!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Meals and entertainment"
Pros: "The airline and the flight were pretty good"
Cons: "DONT SHOW BAGAGE INCLUDED ON A BOOKING WHEN ITS ONLY INCLUDED FOR 1 WAY! I HAD TO SHELL OUT 40 EURO TO CHECK MY BAG BECAUSE OF THIS!"
Pros: "Very fast and cheap flight."
Cons: "Seats were extremely uncomfortable. Boarding was very chaotic."
Pros: "Friendly crew, great food, comfy seats"
Pros: "Red wine was OK, passed on the free sandwich as last time it didn’t agree with me"
Cons: "Flight was over an hour late and no compensation from the airlines."
Cons: "Delay and food was bad"
Cons: "Lufthansa lost our bags at Heathrow for over 2 hours. I waited with my toddler for two hours in a terminal with no food options and our transport waiting. While on the flight, there were no food options appropriate for a toddler and no gluten free options for myself."
Pros: "It was run by UA, better seats then Austrian or Lufthansa in Economy. On time. Very efficient."
Cons: "Could not choose seats online,"
Pros: "Flight was on time, food good. Even the movie selection was great, but ... (see what I didn't like)"
Cons: "Entertainment (sound) in seat 14K didn't work, despite 1 reboot. Please fix."
Pros: "The change in seat to middle seat, different row for my wife and I was enough for me to think again about a ticket with you"
Pros: "I especially like the comfortable seats with plenty of legroom. The flight was on time - perfect!"
Pros: "Everything that happened during the flight was fine. The service, the flight itself, and the landing – which was excellent."
Cons: "On the ground, neither the staff nor the signage made it clear exactly where to check in. I was sent to the Lufthansa counter, which didn’t open until 11:30, when I should have gone to the United counter. An hour of my time was wasted, which almost resulted in my missing the one-hour before take-off check-in deadline. The only reason I didn’t miss the deadline was because the flight was late taking off."
Pros: "Great service. Friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "I don’t like the configuration of the biz class seats. They are in a row vs in pods. Not as private as other configurations."
Pros: "The staff were all super helpful and friendly! Pleasure to fly with!"
Cons: "4/4 flights with involuntary stop-overs were delayed, causing 4 panics and 2 missed flights. Given their proclivity for busing passengers to distant planes in Herman efforts, a 50-minute allowance for changing planes, when added to the frequent Kate departures, is just not sufficient. They should acknowledge it and sell only flights that allow for 80-90 minutes in the airports that are so woefully managed (eg, Frankfurt and Munich). It’s back to BA for me!"
Pros: "the on time scheduled departure"
Cons: "the long complicated walk to terminal"
Cons: "Check-in process. Baggage fees."
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."
Cons: "The crew didn't seem particularly interested in helping anyone and worked hard to avoid eye contact. This was an unpleasant flight at best and given the option I will not likely fly Lufthansa again if given the option. I wish that I had better news to report from this flight. :("
Cons: "None of the flights arrived on schedule. That caused other problems. Overall the trip was terrible. Not sure if I will fly lufthansa again nor recommen."
Pros: "Flight was an hour delayed for no reason. I missed my connection that I had 2.5 hours to catch"
Pros: "Gave us snacks when flight was delayed"
Cons: "Flight was delayed Entertainment app didn't work"
Pros: "Pretty much everything. A joy after the Condor flight"
Cons: "What's not to likr?"
Pros: "Darned site more comfortable than the first leg of the journey."
Cons: "Tell your passengers they need hiking boots to get from main concourse to B terminal!"
Cons: "Was a short flight , so really I don't have any negative impression"
Pros: "They held the gate for us as we got there about 14 minutes before departure."
Pros: "Clean, friendly environment, friendly staff, even though a bit bossy, but that's the German way (which I am too)."
Cons: "Little space. and NO WIFI. This is really no longer adequate in 2017. In the US, practically all domestic flights have wifi now."
Pros: "787 seat spacing (a UA plane, not LH)"
Cons: "Took first available train , arr. Freising at 9:50. Arrived at Terminal 2 by bus ca. 10:25. I am handicapped and a slow walker, so I got to departure floor ca. `10:40. Waited in line at self-serve check-in; found out that it does not have ability to process numbers (for US address). Attendant was not helpful and nasty. She told me me to go to the regular check-in line, where I waited another 45 minutes. None of the 3 "help" personnel standing around when approached managed to tell me that there was a special counter for handicapped persons. The one at the express self-check-in refused to give me her lasst name or any form of ID (first name Sophia). After waiting an additional 15 minutes for a wheelchair, I was deposited in a waiting area, where a second wheelchair arrived after another long wait. Told me I might not make the plan (I did). Overall a very unpleasant and nasty experience. With the exception of the very nice lady (Mrs. Ilser?? ) who checked in my luggage, none of the other 3 persons at the express and regular check-in spoke decent German or English, and none was helpful (Go there, wait!!!) Barely made the plane in MUC, Heathrow turned out much better than the touted German efficiency. Please forward to Lufthansa customer relations. Dr. W. Hartwig"
Pros: "We got there"
Cons: "Had to get a replacement plane when the first one had issues."
Pros: "The staff were great. Food (sandwiches) and drink were included in the service. Music entertainment was included at no extra charge."
Cons: "All good. United and USA domestic carriers need to learn what to do from lufthansa."
Pros: "The crew and in flight experience were excellent."
Cons: "Both Lufthansa and United's boarding announcements fail to account for passengers' impatience and neglect of boarding group procedure. Lufthansa doesn't clearly identify when un-prioritized groups should begin to board. United should make clear that unspecified group members attempting to board prematurely will be held to the back of the queue for their appropriate group."
Pros: "The crew came round with bottled water multiple times during the trip and even after taking off 15 min late, we still landed 30 mins early and the luggage came out quickly."
Cons: "The meal before landing consisted of nothing but the worst ham sandwich I've ever had the mis-fortune to be served: reminiscent of Bulgarian Airlines in the 80's."
Pros: "On time and smooth"
Cons: "Flight was canceled. They packed us on another one 3 hours later. Crying babies, bad food and uncomfortable, squishy seats made the flight unpleasant."
Pros: "We arrived in London ahead of time. We go to Newark ahead of time"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "New plane with very friendly and helpful attendants. Extensive entertainment system with usb charging ports."
Cons: "Food was mediochre, but what can you expect?"
Cons: "Flight had no movies/in-flight service. Departed an hour late."
Cons: "Entertainment didn't work"
Pros: "Check in was good. Everything was orderly and on time."
Cons: "Fairly cramped for an international flight."
Pros: "Food was actually fairly good. We almost missed the connection coming from Denver, but gate crew worked to get about 8 passengers from the DEN flight on the London flight."
Cons: "Of course, the seats were uncomfortable, and it was very difficult to get much sleep."
Pros: "No real complaints. Pretty decent international coach service. This was a code share on United. Vegetarian meal exceeded my rather low expectations. Entertainment was top notch... plenty of movies to choose from."
Cons: "My only critique is that the crew could have been a lot friendlier. I am always very pleasant to the crew and expect the same in return."
Pros: "The service and quiet ride"
Cons: "The headphones did not work"
Pros: "Arriving early Decent food"
Cons: "Taking off late"
Pros: "The crew was great. I was served by a woman named Lori that was the best flight attendant I have ever encountered. Extremely polite and at tentative to every need. Always asking if everything was alright and how she could make the flight better for me. She took a genuine interest in me and my travels. We engaged in great conversation and she was extremely pleasant. Thank you Lori!"
Cons: "The in flight entertainment on the back seat did not work. Also, I paid over $16 for Internet to work during the flight and it constantly kept dropping signal and connection. The router went in and out all flight. It should have been reimbursed but was never taken care of."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the crew were nice."
Cons: "the seating is horrible. it was the tightest seating I've ever experienced."
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: "The crew is excellent but the seats are not comfortable enough. There should be a way to balance money and comfort,not just placing people in seats they do not fit into"
Cons: "Nothing,just the seats. Cleanliness was perfect"
Pros: "The plane ✈️ itself the attendants . The entertainment on board. Really great"
Cons: "Nothing dissatisfying about the flight nor the airline staff . Very polite, very professional. It was a Great flight. For long trips this airline is one of the best."
Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."
Pros: "Flight and the crew!"
Cons: "Staff at the airport pushing you to upgrade to first class but not making it clear only the first trip from Athens to Amsterdam which the first class uses same uncomfortable seats as the economy to pay extra 130 euros ridiculous airfrance stuff! I should have flown all the way to NYC first class!!!"
Cons: "Don’t be late"
Pros: "Seats super comfy. Ended up with 3 seats to myself that formed a bed for the lap Uk to NZ. Very nice!"
Pros: "Nice staff and no delay"
Cons: "Instead of crisps maybe a bit of cheese or crackers"
Pros: "Seat comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and overhead bin space was very small"
Cons: "This was just a short commuter flight from Lyon to Amsterdam for connection."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant but not attentive to detail. Bypassed is completely for snack and drink towards end of 9 hour flight!"
Cons: "Pay attention to passengers."
Cons: "We were told they were holding our flight, we ran 3 terminals and they’d already left."
Pros: "The crew was great but the seat wasn't as comfortable and didn't have much leg room."
Pros: "Seat space a bit tight . I should have upgraded to more leg room . Next time!"
Cons: "I bought tickets thrue you for me two months ago Iit went well but on the last few days I also bought ticked for my brother and his wife and it was a disaster night mare for them bound for Montpellier too to attend a wedding the damn suitcase didn’t get to final destination it was at Orlando but got"
Cons: "The website I booked on and the Delta phone line on the printed ticket said that I had baggage when it turns out that I did not according to the check in staff and they made me pay."
Cons: "Too much light in the cabin because of too many screens on. Should have a separate part of the cabin with screens off allowing one to sleep more easily."
Pros: "Nice people and good service"
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "Amsterdam airport and Rome airport were as breeze to navigate, even only knowing English"
Pros: "Seat 39A did not recline. The gentleman next to me spread his arms out a bit as he typed on his computer the entire way. So I did not get ANY sleep. Plus he got up at least four times."
Cons: "Except for the man next to me - great!"
Cons: "Still waiting to board after missing this connection had to be booked on another airline"
Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Very small seats with no leg room and very little room on either side. The food was bad - even when compared to other airplane food. Plane is kept too warm."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and there was enough room for hand baggage. I slept during the flight so do not have opinion on entertainment."
Cons: "Not able to charge my digital devices. When serving beverages and food, the same flight attendant missed me a few times. That was annoying but other attendants were very nice."
Pros: "Professional crew. Good boarding."
Cons: "No entertainment on board in business. Stale buns - staff unapologetic. Older 737 with uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "I enjoyed the attention to detail and comfort. Helped to make the flight easier to handle."
Cons: "The streaming service didn’t work"
Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Everting so good ex"
Pros: "Boarding was quick, Flight on time....just a regular service and plane"
Cons: "Terminal 3 Manchester is not worth staying longer then necessary, loud music, crowded....old"
Pros: "Due to lightening bolt strike our pre-Y2K era plane got switched out with a newer plane with modern media delivery at the seats."
Cons: "This caused a two hour delay in boarding and another 30 minutes on the JFK T4 tarmac. Same crappy headphones so it wasn’t the"
Pros: "Pleasant flight"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed a little due to weather as was takeoff. Cant blame them for weather but the connection was very tight."
Cons: "Bag was lost"
Cons: "Bag was lost"
Cons: "Amesterdam airport employee was really rude"
Pros: "The food was excelent"
Cons: "I have to pay to pay a little more confort"
Pros: "The last two times we connected in Amsterdam to Humberside our luggage was delayed. This time it wasn’t. The simple things give the greatest satisfaction"
Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant and attentive. Seats were comfortable for economy as well. We were allowed to check in extra baggage for free at check in which really helped since we would be catching a connecting flight in Amsterdam"
Cons: "Per usual, KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Strange choice of in-flight movies; no accounting for taste, I guess."
Pros: "Great crew service. Among the best ever."
Pros: "Everything - Checkin, crew, food, entertainment"
Pros: "The staff was fast and curteous."
Cons: "There is not anything to complain about besides the usual discomfort of travel."
Pros: "Loved this 747! Crew was professional and food was very good."
Cons: "We had a long wait (25 minutes) at the gate because we were early."
Pros: "I fly delta this was run by KLM they weight all bags delta does not they don't take TSA preach Check. Delta does It was a free for all with check in and getting into plane"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Short, comfortable flight. Nothing special. Got us where we needed to be without incident."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet the min. characters."
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, but they only had limited resources to work with."
Cons: "Worst aircraft I have been on in years. No wifi or entertainment, no power outlets, only bad wine/beer for a 3+ hour flight is mediocre at best..."
Pros: "It was a short flight so it was O.K."
Cons: "Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger."
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: "Excellent service and comfortable flight"
Cons: "Flight delay roughly an hour"
Pros: "aircraft was new, clean, and with many new amenities that are appreciated - device charging, Internet access. The crew was great."
Cons: "The seats are tough after a few hours of siting. Children screamed throughout the flight. To the crews credit, they recognized the issue, and suggested a move to empty seats. However,there was a screaming and coughing child behind these seats also. Perhaps grouping families to a section would help?"
Pros: "The usual efficient, friendly WestJet crew. Nice to fly in one of the new Dreamliner. Super smooth landing."
Pros: "Premium seats were more comfortable, crew in our section was great, newer airplane was lovely, food and drink were really good."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything within WestJet’s control that was bad."
Cons: "Minor point. They boarded the plane very early. We got to the gate 1/2 hour before departure, and were almost the last ones to board."
Pros: "Didn't see much of crew. Food was crazy expensive for what it was."
Cons: "Better food for price, or an option to pre-book a proper meal at time of buying ticket. Plane was cold and no blankets."
Pros: "The plane was nice and quiet, and the crew was lovely."
Cons: "It was so cold!!"
Pros: "I did not make it on the flight as the time was given was 5:35 and the flight left at 4:00."
Cons: "I was not given correct information and being a very novice traveller did not check the information."
Pros: "Crew were very caring. Seats were OK"
Pros: "Boarding was easy, crew was pretty friendly and we reached London an hour early which was brilliant."
Cons: "Maybe let us know in advance that there's no TV's in the plane, or meals. Leg room for someone who's 6'4" is non existent, especially when the person in front of you puts their seat back."
Pros: "i was pretty comfortable being in an aisle seat"
Cons: "didn’t love the lights coming on in the middle of the night"
Pros: "The crew was friendly. The flight was safe."
Cons: "The flight to be on time."
Pros: "Neriande (who issued the boarding passes & took checked bags) and her colleague At the check in desk were amazing - actually going behind the scenes to find a gate checked bag that had been wrongly named and was headed for Toronto when we were headed to LONDON GATWICK"
Cons: "Faulty weather radar on a stormy evening cancelled our WestJet PREMIUM ECONOMY flight. After deplaning and waiting for all passengers without checked bags to be rebooked, we eventually were on our way by car from LGA to JFK airport to meet a British Airways ECONOMY flight with only minutes to spare"
Cons: "The food was extremely mediocre for an $18 meal."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff. Boarded and got off quickly. Clean airplane."
Cons: "I felt cramped in my emergency exit seat, especially having a larger size person sit next to me. My seat was not comfortable. Being tall provides no advantages on westjet. Had to look down at my phone the whole time for entertainment, neck hurt. Wont fly again"
Pros: "The low cost"
Cons: "That which comes with low cost, you get what you pay for"
Pros: "Embarkation staff were helpful"
Cons: "No better than AC Rouge which I deplore"
Pros: "Loved WestJet! They are the best airline, always super friendly"
Pros: "Great staff. Fast boarding and deplaning."
Pros: "Staff was good"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Lack of maintenance. Seats did not recline, seat in front of me was broken. No reading lights available. One washroom became inoperable. Just showing a lack of maintenance or cost saving measures until new planes are delivered. Not a great impression for a carrier striving to compete against Air Canada. I would say they are competing with Air Transat."
Pros: "That we could sleep during the flight. The attendants left us alone when we were sleeping."
Cons: "Big 4 hour delay caused that we missed another flight in London"
Cons: "We couldn't take the flight as Westjet could not get us there on time and would not hold the flight ...... see above"
Pros: "The flight was not cancelled in spite of poor weather"
Cons: "Flight on tarmac for 2 hours after loading passengers no word regularly from pilots or anyone for a long time. Baggage loading and no accountability for huge delays for lost luggage containers? Who is the logistics team? This is not the first time westjet has provided poor service on their international flights. Training if ground staff onsystems is poor. He guest services at tronto openly claimed they did lot know how to operate certain screens for transactions."
Pros: "We survived"
Cons: "On an 8 hour flight there’s no complimentary meal. I paid for a meal and it was worse than free plane food and starved for the rest of the trip. The chairs were horribly uncomfortable with no lower back support and we were not even given pillows and blankets. There was also no free entertainment. I rented a tablet and had it taken away an hour before landing while I was in the middle of a movie. I might have been ok with that if the flight attendant had politely asked for it back rather than rudely waving and pointing while I stared at her blankly trying to figure out what she wanted. Next time I’ll pay a bit more for an airline that respects its passengers and our comfort."
Pros: "I was traveling with my 11 month old daughter and everyone went out of their way to assist us and I didn't feel like a burden to them. When she was sleeping on my lap during the flight they even brought me my meal in portions so I didn't have a huge tray to balance over my baby."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Excellent Flight to London"
Cons: "Typical Econofare - pay piece meal for everything including a checked bag."
Pros: "Free upgrade and gate check!"
Cons: "No checked bags or meals for economy passengers"
Cons: "Pre-ordered meals are costlier than those purchased on board. The crew explains it by saying that they give some extra food just before landing, in lieu of that but what they give is too meagre and its not the customers choice."
Pros: "The flight attendants where really nice and so was the service wouldn't change a thing here."
Cons: "I didn't like that someone was reclining in there seat in front of me and it was so far down that it was uncomfortable even to sit in my seat or get to my table. Also was very disappointed that I had to pay for food even though it was way over 8 hours, in the end didn't even bother about food was not much of a choice. Also no TV on this long haul flight was really disappointed again, so I had to pay for a tablet was hugely disappointed. Needed more leg room was cramped on this flight."
Cons: "My ticket/reservation was not found by WestJet. I had to buy a new ticket. Flight Network or Emirates screwed up. I will need you and them to reemburse me. Please investigate."
Pros: "Landed 10 minutes early. Good landing in tough conditions"
Pros: "Very cheerful and friendly crew. Made the journey very enjoyable."
Pros: "Basics of chips or pretzels as one food offering"
Pros: "Friendly, polite crew. Well organized boarding"
Pros: "Only problem is my flight didnt have screens and you had to pay for a tablet. I get screens on my flights to Edmonton and Sask for work with Westjet all the time but on a long flight to London they're majorly lacking. A basic meal over a 9.5 hour flight should be included as well."
Cons: "1 for usb charging ports though. I still love Westjet but different priorities for International flights should a no brainer."
Pros: "Helpful polite staff. Many great movies and tv shows to select from."
Cons: "Trying to sleep in an uncomfortable, small, non reclining seat."
Pros: "The flight is decently cheap"
Cons: "Everything else is not really pleasant for a long distance travel. I've never felt more uncomfortable in my life during a flight. But i suppose you get what you paid for."
Pros: "food was good"
Cons: "Delays in connection flight, arrival gate and departure are far away and no help from airlines."
Pros: "the entertainment system was incredible."
Cons: "It was a very long flight-- including a meal in the ticket would have made it more enjoyable."
Pros: "After our horrendous flight to America with Norwegian (never again!!!) it was refreshing to have some space and the staff was friendly"
Cons: "lnternet was very expensive ($4-5 for 30 minutes, so l did not bother) no entertainment whatsoever, but okay for a budget flight during the night"
Pros: "When they fixed the aircraft it was overcrowded but okay"
Cons: "Their dishonesty. We were delayed 25hours. I am out of pocket by several hundreds of pounds. Two months later they have still not compensated me. yet the Canadians that were on the fight have been reimbursed. The message is loud and clear if you are British do not fly West Jet"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy, and the gate attendant was quite friendly."
Cons: "Very rude crew members; delay leaving YVR. Instead of being honest and upfront about having to leave an HOUR later--and also lying by saying that we'd be flying into Gatwick in only 8.5 hours as opposed to 9.5--they made us wait in our seats while the craft supposedly waited for food to be loaded. The best line was, "Our plane will be landed an hour earlier! But because London doesn't like it when we land early, we're going to wait here for a while on the tarmac so we make it there on time.""
Cons: "You have to download an app to watch movies/tv. There is no food served (transatlantic flight!) unless purchased 48 hours beforehand."
Pros: "Brought our own sandwiches.."
Cons: "We were invited to send our carry iron bags to the hold at the gate. We delivered them to the plane door on the jetway. My wife's bag didn't make it from Edmonton to London Gatwick. That's the last time I send anything to the hold ."
Pros: "Low cost, supportive seating"
Cons: "Meals are extra Arrived a bit early and had to wait about 15 min for someone to attach the gate"
Cons: "Plane needs to be upgraded, don't charge for meals or baggage"
Pros: "Very helpful! Very enjoyable flight, I was worried about my bags fitting as I took a 46L backpacking bag with me but it rit great and staff was so nice!"
Pros: "the price"
Cons: "they left late"
Pros: "The service was okay and departed on time."
Cons: "I didnt like not having entretainment (no TV or free wifi). Meals not included on economy class."
Cons: "Seat space was too small for an international flight. Meals seemed VERY cheap and low quality and left me hungry still. Touch screens on monitors did not work. Headphones for monitors did not work well either. Luggage was lost for 3 days with no contact on status updates. Overall not a good experience, would much rather fly with another airline for my next international flight. I fly internationally very frequently and this was the worst experience I've had so far."
Pros: "However im still missing my checked luggage."
Pros: "They were not stingy about alcohol."
Cons: "I had called the airline ahead of time for a bassinet seat. On 31st Dec not so many people fly with babies. There were only 2 babies including mine, but they still had just one bassinet seat and one high chair. The high chair was a ridiculous option. Very uncomfortable for an infant. In spite of calling and requesting ahead of time, no bassinet seat. I have traveled in other airlines and they have been far more accommodating. Seats were very uncomfortable and service was very poor. Coffee/tea served was not hot. So overall very bad experience and I am possibly never taking BA again."
Pros: "The directness of the flight, and being able to watch the monitors to track the trip! The flight was on-time and we got swiftly on and off the aircraft."
Cons: "There was a family behind me working out their issues loudly speaking to each other across the aisle and over my seat. I wish the flight attendants has regulated them a bit more, but I understand that they're busy attending to passengers as a whole!"
Pros: "Departure was on time and the crew members were exceptional."
Cons: "There was nothing about this trip not to like."
Cons: "The entertainment screen didn't work"
Pros: "Everything went without a hitch!"
Pros: "The boarding attendant almost made me miss the flight over what I had already confirmed I.e traveling using an extension to a green card. Coaching needed on the topic."
Pros: "Wow, if I was treated this well in coach I cannot imagine what business and first class are like. Excellent flight and service."
Pros: "Everything was awesome."
Pros: "The food was pretty bad, not what I am used to with British Airways."
Cons: "After everyone was boarded in the plane, the pilot announced that a fuel pump was broken and that they would try to fix it. 2 and half hours later, the pilot announced they couldn't fix it and that a new one would have to come from London to San Francisco to replace it (as if the only place to get decent plane parts was London)!!!! The plane was rescheduled to fly the next day at 18.00. It didn't actually leave until after midnight, causing us to miss our connecting flights not just once, but again the next day. Communication by British Airways about what was going on and when we could expect to fly was awful throughout, and their customer service was worse than abysmal. I will avoid flying BA in the future."
Cons: "the man from the crew. he was mean"
Pros: "A packed flight with some very rude customers who were dealt with very professionally by the staff"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by over an hour due to a late arriving flight. Missed our original connecting flight"
Pros: "Flight crew was outatanding, service was a huge step above domestic flights! Seattle gate supervisor insisted I check my carry on bag, after I had carefully measured it and my backpack to make sure I could carry both on. She assured me one of my bags would get taken in London before our connecting flight., and then I might never see it again. She wouldn't hear of measuring the backpack. Which was apparently the problem. When I got to London, my backpack was in fact tagged as being acceptable size! Fortunately, the rest of British Airways staff have their act together and one person didn't ruin an otherwise great experience."
Pros: "-good food -nice crew -good movies"
Cons: "-little space in the economy cabin comapared to other airlines; -not much diversity for music"
Pros: "Other than it being too warm, all else was excellent."
Cons: "It was uncomfortably warm, many complaints from other passengers, never improved."
Pros: "The meals were great and the leg room was nicer than expected"
Pros: "It's a huge sardine can with smaller seats than the A320. More people means frustrated staff. Overhead luggage space is severely reduced. Makes me wish I was on a DC-9."
Cons: "Staff spoke amongst each other in a different language. Saw staff picking teeth, picking nose,joking and laughing while we were cattle in their way. I must endure a return flight but it will be my last A380 flight."
Pros: "Airbus 380 is just a larger sardine can. BA fills it as much as possible, little room. Food was so and so, arrived half frozen.... BA has gone down from what it used to be."
Pros: "The crew was lovely and the food options were good. I love that the flight included free drinks and food."
Cons: "We had three seats in and a row. One of the seats was missing a cushion which made it very uncomfortable for the entire flight."
Cons: "Too short time for connecting flight resulted in missing my connection. BA decided to try a new software system on a high travel date which resulted in an hour delay. Many passengers missed their connecting flights."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful, the movie selection was nice, and the flight was comfortable."
Cons: "The food left room for improvement, as did the boarding procedures."
Cons: "sets it was very small"
Pros: "Served veg food as requested by me"
Cons: "Eating non veg food by compass enter very closely If possible create a vegetarians zone"
Pros: "The flights were on time, boarding proceeded with no glitches, enterteinment was great and the crew very attentive."
Cons: "security process was slow because they did not have enough people"
Pros: "Attentive crew!"
Cons: "The food selection is just horrid."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 3 hours due to maintenance issues due to which my international connecting flight in London was missed. We were given meal vouchers 15 minutes before the plane was ready for boarding and by then, all the restaurants had already closed at Chicago airport. So we were forced to either not eat anything, or use the vouchers at 1 restaurant that was on the brink of shutting, that could not provide any food, but provided some drinks and packets of chips only."
Pros: "Legroom good, entertainment system had a vast choice of films, TV and music, food tasty. Seats very comfortable. Very pleasantly surprised."
Cons: "Service was infrequent and not enough water to passengers on a long flight"
Cons: "Had to turn around and land in Chicago because of presumed medical emaergency, which did not appear that urgent. Missed connecting flights"
Pros: "even though i forgot to order my vegan meal the staff prepared a salad for me to enjoy"
Pros: "Getting to London safely."
Cons: "Where to start... Entertainment- My TV was broken until half way through the flight and even the then the controller never worked limiting my options. Then there were only about 6 movies to choose from and when you chose one you would either have to wait 11-29 minutes for the next showing or join an already in progress showing. Cleanliess - there were used tissue in my seat back pocket that I found when I went to grab a magazine. I had a window seat and when I lifted it there were greasy head or hand (or both) prints visibly all over the window. I got sick the day after arriving and I don't doubt these things contributed. Comfort - seat was fine except underneath where my feet should go there was some kind of metal box affixed to the floor. Luckily my neighbor let me share their space. The overhead reading light wouldn't shut off so we had to tape a box lid over it to be able to let ourselves and those around us sleep. Food- Im gluten free and requested a special meal. It was cold, tasted horrible, and the same lemon cookie (the only edible thing) they gave me for dessert they also gave me for breakfast. The in crew attendants were nice and tried to help as much as possible. I may have gotten a good deal on the flight and been in economy but it is still a lot of money to me.fTo book with one airline and get another is disappointing, even more disapointing was the experience. I'm very glad to have gotten to london safely but am hoping for a much better journey home and will think twice before booking international on kayak/British Airways again. Definitely will never fly American overseas EVER again. I'm sorry to write something like this but it genuinely was awful and I've been sick most my trip."
Cons: "Seats, entertainment"
Cons: "The flight left late, so we missed our connecting flight from Heathrow to Dublin. The AA gate agent at Charlotte Airport told me that she had put on a later flight from Heathrow to Dublin, but when we went to check into that later flight, there was no record. The AA gate agent had told us a story that she didn't follow through with. So, we had t wait 4 hours in Heathrow before getting on an even later connecting flight. AA has REALLY poor customer service!"
Pros: "The BA crews always keep a tidier aircraft en route than other airlines."
Cons: "If BA absolutely had to reassign my reserved seat, I wish they had at least respected my aisle preference. With severe arthritis I must be able to get up and move around in flight."
Pros: "Service was efficient"
Cons: "Delay meant leaving and arriving in the dark."
Pros: "Online check-in is very convenient. There was a wide-variety of on-board entertainment to choose from. We were offered more meals than I expected (dinner and breakfast), which was a nice surprise, but the quality of the food was exactly how I expect airline food to be. The crew was courteous and pleasant though rather busy. I can't say I travel by air a whole lot, but BA has been one of the few airlines I can recommend with little hesitation."
Cons: "The food was edible but only memorable for how slightly-less-than-average it was. Most microwavable meals I've had taste better than the dinner that was served. Breakfast was only slightly better in that it was mostly pre-packaged food items (e.g., granola bar, raisins) that I could stash to eat later, which I did."
Cons: "Booked a flight with Kayak - fare was then issued through Airfare.com. Tried to change the ticket after my father passed away, but was told I needed to issue a request through an awful website that wanted me to provide credit card details - despite being unsecure and unencrypted. Just awful."
Pros: "The seats were really nice, even in economy class. There was enough leg space and it was really soft so even on my 10, 5h flight my but and back didn't hurt. The entertainment was also really good: the newest movies, songs, books and games."
Cons: "I didn't like the food. For dinner I could choose from chicken with rice and cheese ravioli. While I normally really like ravioli I didn't like this one. I didn't taste any cheese at all. The bread and crackers served with it I liked, but not the fruit pudding. Next time I will have the chicken again ;) For breakfast I could choose from a breakfast omelet or an English breakfast. I don't like eggs and I don't like sausages for breakfast so I chose the English breakfast anyway and only ate the cupcake and yoghurt, which were okay."
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "The space was very reduced my legs started hurting. It was very difficult to get out of my seat and to get back in."
Cons: "- The crew refused to hang the jacket even though the flight was not even half full. - The wine served was the cheapest you can find and did not even have an option to buy a good bottle - Bread was hard as a rock and definitely can break a window if thrown at a window"
Cons: "Fog over London delayed our flight from Rome. Instead of dealing with this proactively, BA made us sit in the plane on the tarmac for three hours. When we finally arrived in Rome, instead of automatically rebooking us, they directed everyone to a queue. That queue, managed on a first in, first out basis, took FOUR HOURS, during which we missed more flights that would have gotten us home. If, instead, the queue had been managed by departing flights, more people would have gotten to their destinations in a timely fashion. We eventually we booked on a flight to NY and got a rental car. We were offered no compensation for this ordeal."
Pros: "Very quick and efficient boarding"
Cons: "The food from the "peak bakery" was awful"
Pros: "The flight crew from Seattle and the entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Due to weather conditions our second flight to Seville was cancelled. This flight was booked through British Airways but not at the same time so unfortunately the Seattle crew did not alert us of the cancellation although our passenger info was all the same, the BA system should have a way to do this. We then waited in line for 3 hours at Gatwick to get rerouted and get hotel accommodations and received terrible and insufficient care. The staff seem most concerned with taking breaks than then caring for the enormous line of tired travelers. We lost an entire day of vacation due to the BA system not recognizing our flights as one itinerary and the very slow service at the airport; there were options for that day but by the time we spoke with anyone it was too late."
Pros: "price was okay"
Cons: "everything else"
Pros: "Love feeling like home before before I even land in the UK"
Cons: "2 hour delay. I always get a back back when flying."
Pros: "Great food aND service"
Cons: "Leg room was minimal."
