Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Nothing, the flight was canceled without a refund. I highly recommend canceling all business with kiwi in the future."
Cons: "My flight could have occurred or I could have been refunded."
Pros: "Being on time with everything."
Cons: "Had no entertainment, asked the attendent, she called simebody, but it didn't help and she didn't bother to come and explain. Food was really bad, undercooked and cold."
Cons: "Really felt happy on time touch down nice journey with delta"
Cons: "Comfort. Jetblue offers betwee seats ne apacing betqeen rows"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Food is always bad."
Pros: "The crew was amazing! The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Used the self check in kiosk to begin! That was awesome! But after that I still had to stand in line to check in my bags. That part of the process took a bit longer than expected."
Cons: "It was all good ✈️"
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "That was the most uncomfortable and cramped seat I had ever had on a plane flight. Even sitting on the pillow did not help."
Pros: "I like that I arrived at my destination safely."
Cons: "My allergies were bothering me due to the airlines allowing animals to travel as passengers, in this case a rabbit. I am very allergic to animals. My breathing was compromised."
Pros: "This had one of the best attendants I have encountered. She was extra friendly and made us feel good."
Pros: "Yeah...spacious leg rooms."
Cons: "Too bumpy landing at Jackson."
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours delayed.. this cause a lot of inconvienece.."
Pros: "Great landing in a real mess of a storm. We were pitching and yawing due to high gusts of winds but the crew brought it down perfectly. The Captain explained the weather situation before we left Atlanta so I was prepared for a bad weather flight and landing."
Cons: "The weather."
Pros: "Early and middle seat was open!"
Cons: "Coffee tasted like fish. :("
Pros: "We eventually arrived"
Cons: "Then, in Atlanta, the flight was delayed 3-4 times, and our departure was more than an hour late. Overall, not one to be proud of, Delta"
Pros: "Everything was on time and efficient. I also liked that the captain came on and updated us on arrival, turbulence, weather, etc."
Pros: "All was good."
Cons: "Screen went out after an announcement. I told the attendant but lost the screen for the rest of the flight. Slow to load and unload."
Cons: "staff wasn't very friendly"
Cons: "Flight was delayed out of St. Louis causing several of us to miss our connecting flight from Salt Lake City to Portland. Delta was of very little help in assisting us in making a connecting flight. They could have at least helped with travel arrangements and provided us with a little food, a pillow and a blanket as we waited in their terminal for the next flight on their airline which was a several hour wait. I understand these things happen but the passengers didn't cause the problem and Delta needs to take care of people better if they expect to earn repeat business."
Pros: "I got home"
Cons: "Seats were tiny as hell"
Cons: "Ac not working at last 30 minutes of flight."
Cons: "Delta allowed flights with empty seats going to the same destination to take off without trying to fill them w passengers who were delayed on other flights. Our flight was delayed more than three hours, and it’s a shame that some folks could have been accommodated on that flight but were not."
Cons: "We lost our whole vacation and had to pay for the plans fare twice because My last name was spelled wrong on our tickets and we were unable to use them because my passport didn’t match the name on the ticket. We had to rebook everything pay almost twice as much for the plane fare, our Lodi g cost more and our trip was delayed for two weeks. Vyama is blaming us for spelling our name wrong and claimes that it’s our fault this happened because everything is automated. There saying they don’t touch anything that we enter into the booking but somehow everything they claim we entered is now in all capital letters and the space between our first name and middle name is now gone and all run together. The coustomer service number gets you to someone in India. I have tried to get this addressed four times now at first they tried to place the responsibility on the airlines now us and they have hung up on me twice. Kayak has been worthless, they also just pass the responsibility on to someone else. We will never use them again ant I intend to make sure that this mess is put out in social media to hopefully keep others from having their travel plans ruined by their flawed system."
Cons: "They changed my flight to a different one departing 2 hours earlier and did not notify me! The original flight was still available & they would not let me take it despite my reservation paper work. CRAZY! I have a two hour drive to the airport this gave me the option to leave home at 2:30am or go the night before and pay for a hotel. Flight was managed by DELTA who also did not care! All involved blamed each other. Beware"

Cons: "I was expecting some form of entertainment (radio, overhead monitor, etc) on the CRJ700. But it really don't take away from the experience since T-Mobile partnered with the Wi-Fi service and I received a free hour of Wi-Fi!"
Cons: "My flight got to New York so late!!!! I missed my international flight."

Pros: "Delta employees knew what they were doing in PV"
Pros: "The flight attendant was pleasant"
Cons: "As usual, Delta regional jets with recurring mechanical problems change of planes, change of gates delay take off etc. This carrier has become a nightmare on this Detroit to Kalamazoo leg."
Pros: "Spacious, clean, great host and hostesses. The flight arrived at our destination 30 minutes early."
Pros: "Newer plane! Comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing just great"
Cons: "Not enough water on the flight and we landed in a parking lot and shuttled back to the airport."
Cons: "after reaching the destination, it took a lot to open the airplane's doors and letting people out"
Pros: "I was cleared for standby! Flight attendant at the stl gate is always friendly and willing to help! I love her!"
Cons: "I waited almost 6 hours on the phone the night before the flight to get on standby! Almost didn't get the flight! Was charged $50 only to not get on my next flight because it was over booked! Flight attendant was very rude!"
Pros: "I liked that I was able to get able to get an earlier flight!"
Cons: "I don't like that I had to pay $50 extra dollars for standby on both legs of my flight! I am a very loyal delta customer and these past times flying I feel like my favorite airline is turning into the bad airlines delay everytime, problems with the plane fare prices too high! I'm starting to think about taking my business elsewhere!"
Pros: "10 minutes early departure"
Cons: "There isn't enough seats in the gate area and sitting on the runway for 10 extra minutes we could have been early"

Pros: "Leg room was good but could have been better"
Cons: "Flight did not leave on time. Weather conditions were not a factor."
Pros: "It was great and very roomy I felt like a movie STAR!!!"
Pros: "Crew brilliant but seat very tight"
Cons: "Boarding procedure slow and hectic"
Pros: "Nothing. I missed my original connection because the flight from Budapest was late and I was put in a cramped middle seat while there were seats open in First Class. I should have been upgraded"
Cons: "Upgrade passengers that you make late."
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"

Pros: "Very fast and cheap flight."
Cons: "Seats were extremely uncomfortable. Boarding was very chaotic."
Pros: "Friendly crew, great food, comfy seats"
Cons: "Flight was 45 minutes late arriving, causing me to miss my connection to Lufthansa and forcing reroute of whole trip."
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: "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: "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: "Good service."
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."
Cons: "Very nice crew and great food"
Pros: "Services is good ."
Cons: "Food can be better"
Pros: "Professional crew. Good simple check in."
Pros: "Everything works and quick to get to destination."

Pros: "Seats super comfy. Ended up with 3 seats to myself that formed a bed for the lap Uk to NZ. Very nice!"
Cons: "1. In Flight Entertainment 2. Controlled In Flight Temperature"
Pros: "KLM was a great experience compared to Airitalia. The food was good, the flight attendants were very helpful."
Cons: "We were changed from KLM to Airiltalia without any information sent so only because I tried to check in did I find out the flight on KLM was cancelled and we were changed to Airitalia. The Airitalia flight was very mediocre."
Cons: "Need more leg room!!! Larger meals needed."
Pros: "Flight duration"
Cons: "Very stingy with the drinks Cramped seats"
Pros: "Gaps between seats are very narrow."
Cons: "when serving drinks, cabin crew limited to serve liquor only once and it was poor service."
Pros: "short, sweet and to the point. 1+ hour flight is usually an easy hop."
Pros: "Was happy to pay extra 45.5 pounds for laugages which was hidden"
Cons: "Not happy to pay extra money for my case"
Cons: "Nothing special"
Pros: "The staff tried to help me when it was evident we would not arrive on time"
Cons: "The connecting flight is too short of a time. We were late out of LAX and I missed my connection and had to sit in airport for 5 hours. Missed my grandson’s third birthday party. Just made me sad as Travelled from far to try to make it."
Pros: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight."
Cons: "You are almost always late!"
Pros: "We were fed a nice pasta meal and offered drinks twice. They also gave a muffin for desert. The flight attendants were very nice and attentive with cheerful smiles. I wish every airline had service this good!"
Cons: "infotainment was down. Lost my luggage the flight was delayed"
Pros: "Smooth boarding, clean seats/plane, nice small aircraft (2 rows x 2 seats each), surprisingly spacious (more legroom than expected - and I’m 6’2”)."
Cons: "About 1h30min delay without an explanation. All other planes in the terminal seemed to take off on time without a problem, without exception (aside from this flight, of course)."
Pros: "Good service onboard, good food. On time."
Pros: "Friendly staff, good service and on time departure/arrival."
Pros: "Pleasant flight"
Pros: "Flight crew; legroom even in cheap seats."
Cons: "Exceptionally unhelpful customer service when asking about extra kilos/bags. Just quoted the online info back at us. We simply wanted to know how much would be charged if the bag was 1-2kgs overweight. We could not get a straight answer, just quoted the unclear company policy. Extremely frustrating and annoying. KLM offer a superior flight experience - it is a shame their terrestrial customer servic does not match it!"
Pros: "Only thing we liked was the fact that we were able to get onto our flight at all..."
Cons: "Was not informed that checking in online is the only way to secure a seat. So, regardless of whether you book your tickets 3 months in advance or the day before, you're not actually guaranteed a seat unless you check in online. We weren't told this until we were at the airport and checked in there that we might not be able to get our pre-booked in advance flight because of over-booking from KLM. We then had to wait and see if there were seats available when boarding. Luckily, there were, but we were not sat together. Not the greatest start to our first holiday together as a couple. We were told that if there weren't seats available, they'd pay for us to get to another airport to fly out, which would have meant a huge delay on the only time off we'd get together this year and have to rearrange our pre-booked and pre-paid living arrangements for the week. All because there wasn't a lot of emphasis on the need to check in online before hand. You'd think if someone checked in at the airport, that would be more of a guarantee that they'd be flying with you that day, but apparently not. Definitely not impressed or happy with this part of the KLM experience. This is the only company that we've had this problem with, they should make it clearer that it is essential to check in online."
Pros: "My bagage broke"
Cons: "I paid extra fee for extra bagage which was tv and i paid insurance my tv broke and no one responces for it"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful.food"
Cons: "Food was not upto the mark."
Pros: "newer plane, good staff"
Cons: "need better and more food options, more often"
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised they had a snack service on such a short flight. The flight attendants were very friendly"
Cons: "Amsterdam customs is the most disorganized I have ever seen. With the number of tourists entering the country you would think they would have done something about it. There were only 2 customs agents!! One for all passports and 1 for all passports. We were in the customs hall longer than we were in flight!"
Cons: "suitcase didn't turn up, although connection was quite tight"
Pros: "Airline staff good and professional"
Cons: "Nothing one can do, for a 6.2" guy, the metal bar that forms the shape for the pouch for magazines and such digs into knees, ESP if person in front adjusts seat back. Fold out table barely accommodates laptop."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "No negative"
Pros: "The crew were just amazing, such lovely male stewards! They were helpful and friendly and generally wonderful."
Cons: "The entertainment was quite dated and didn't have new movies etc"
Pros: "Staff at Schipol airport were lovely and very helpful. Cabin crew were friendly and efficient. On board snack was nice."
Cons: "Elbow room is a little bit awkward and I didn't get to sit next to my fiance WE will still definitely recommend KLM though!"
Pros: "Very efficient boarding, fast and professional but warm and friendly. The plane was very clean and quite spacious for a two by two configuration. On time departure and landing and smoothed processing at the other end."
Cons: "Nothing to improve"
Pros: "Professional, friendly service. Punctual, safe flight. Comfortable, spotless airplane."
Cons: "What is there not to like about KLM? I cannot find anything."
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "It's the best flight I could get for such a low price. But don't expect to to get the best and newest planes around but it's still overall a good experience."

Pros: "Seat space was good for a short flight, inclusive of free snack and drink."
Cons: "Too much overoverhead luggage."

Cons: "Cabin noise and air conditioning too cold, didn't sleep well"
Cons: "I missed my flight because of MU"
Pros: "Except for my negative comment, a good flight."
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat, but due to the poor alignment of the seats with the actual windows, I actually sat next to a wall! Nol much to see out of a wall. If KLM are going to charge extra for a window seat, then they should make sure there is a window there! If the seat had actually had a window it would have been an excellent flight."
Pros: "I liked the leg room, I liked the customer service of the crew, smooth flight."
Cons: "Both ways up and down I struggled with over-head luggage space. We were allowed a cabin bag and a small hand-bag in the flight but as we were among the last half of the passengers to board the flight we couldn't find anywhere to keep our luggage and the crew had to take them away from us to store them somewhere at the back far away from our seats. As a result we had to wait until all the passengers got off the plane to get back our luggage and we were the last two passengers to get off. Unpleasant!"
Pros: "Quick and efficient flight. Crew very organized. Great language skills"
Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "Food unpleasant taste"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. The food was below average even for airline food. One of the flight attendants was rude to one of the passengers even though the passenger was not doing anything out of normal."
Pros: "Very smooth, easy to book special meal. Helpful attendants"
Cons: "It was all godd-only wished I had direct all the way"
Pros: "Nice large plane that wasn't near capacity."
Cons: "Long delay with minimal compensation. Gave us a rebooked connection that we had near zero chance of making."
Pros: "Crew was very kind"
Cons: "Screens for entertainment were a bit fuzzy, food was just ok, leg and arm space was tight"
Cons: "Departed one hour late from Miami"
Cons: "Seating was not comfortable."
Pros: "Movie/TV selection good Crew good"
Cons: "Food so so Need more.leg room ways"
Pros: "The crew was nice and the food was alright. Good entertainment and comfy plane."
Cons: "We were late taking off due to the airport and plane not sharing passenger data, and then forced to delay exiting the plane and then forced to sit on a bus rather than enter the terminal."
Pros: "Food was OK, crew was nice. I loved having my own TV and access to movies, games, series, etc."
Cons: "What I really dod not enjoy is the seats. They are extremely small and tight. I literally was pressed between the two people sitting next to me. I didn't have space to even bend down to grab my bag.I could not sleep a wink and was extremely hot."
Pros: "Nice and polite flight attendants"
Cons: "Breakfast was very poor and bad."
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Sprang for business class. Could not get assigned seats until 24 hours before takeoff unless I paid an extra $200 and therefore got the last 2 seats together. Check in was very slow. The agents disappeared for about 15 minutes. Business class lounge ran out of food but BA gave us vouchers to eat elsewhere in the terminal. Flight left about an 90 min late (seems like it is always late) so had to run through Heathrow to catch the connection. Boarding area was too small and chaotic. Seating in business class was ok for me as I am only 5''7" but would be poor for someone over 6 feet. The steak entree was brown through and through. Overall the experience was disappointing."
Cons: "Incredibly, when we went to the British Airways desk to check in they said they didn't have our tickets (!). They put us on standy-by even though we'd booked the tickets and paid in full seven months in advance. Once we eventually got on the plane, it blew a tire on the tarmac and took five (!) hours to fix. There was another short delay finding a gate once we landed in Heathrow, then they lost my luggage and I've yet to receive it. Far and away the worst flight I've ever taken. Avoid BA if you can."
Pros: "Food was great and the crew was friendly. Overall enjoyed the flight."
Cons: "The check in took way too long. Sat there for an hour to check in my luggage. I thought i might miss my flight but i was two minutes before takeoff."
Pros: "Everything is clockwise precision. All the passengers were well disciplined or rather made to be. Aircraft was very airworthy. The pilot was very experienced and nice soft landing at Mumbai in spite of inclement weather conditions"
Cons: "The food & drinks. Both offered we're mediocre stuff."
Pros: "the seats,leg space"
Cons: "crew should be more involved"
Cons: "Unfortunately, the passenger beside me a young man was over served by the flight attendant and became extremely inebriated so that when I tried to ignore him and sleep, he kept touching me, rubbing my arm and leg. The crew were aware of what was happening and tried to reprimand him. It made my flight extremely difficult and it was all because the flight attendant served him doubles of whiskey (which the passenger was drinking neat) on six occasions, two bottles of red wine and that does not include the doubles the passenger procured for himself from other attendants. In all the behaviour of this passenger made my flight a complete nightmare and it was totally unnecessary for him to be served this much alcohol."
Pros: "Flight attendants and pilot very nice and informative."
Cons: "Very small seats in economy for an overseas flight, making it extremely difficult to get comfortable enough to sleep."
Pros: "Pros..Communication was excellent, we knew our flight was delayed hours in advance so we could prepare, they rerouted our connection so we didn't have to worry about that on arrival, and the onboard crew was excellent and caring. They helped a family to sit together by asking for volunteers to move, and they helped me locate my daughter who had been delayed by a problem with gate check in. The flight was smooth and we all arrived safely."
Cons: "The seats in economy were extremely cramped, there was no legroom and I don't know how tall people could fit in there. There is no way a person could get out of his or her seat to go to the bathroom without making the others in the row stand up and get in the aisle and that's pretty uncomfortable to do on an overnight flight when people are sleeping."
Pros: "Grest staff"
Cons: "BA, as well as most airlines, treat their economy fliers with distain. The seat pitch is obscenely too little and possibly dangerous. Their thinking is obviously "make it so uncomfortable that all but the poorest customers will pay more for a modest upgrade'."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and helpful. Meals were decent for airline food. Blankets, headphones, and even a toothbrush were provided."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed departing which made for a long journey becoming even longer. Seating area fairly cramped in economy class (not too surprising I suppose). Rude Brit behind me kicking and pushing my chair because like 90% of the other passengers I reclined my chair on this overnight flight and he took that as a personal affront. Not the airlines fault I had the only jackass on the flight directly behind me, but impactful none the less."
Pros: "The staff and the comfort were stellar."
Cons: "The boarding process was a bit long"
Cons: "Felt cramped in the seats."
Pros: "Food was good"
Pros: "A long haul flight in coach can be interesting, but the BA staff, as always, were very cordial. Security was great...thorough."
Pros: "Everything related to the flight was very good."
Cons: "My wife lost her passport aboard the aircraft; it was not recovered. We do not feel that the BA staff did an adequate search. This caused us great difficulties with the immigration authorities at Heathrow."
Pros: "Not too much."
Cons: "No USB chargers or in seat power supply. Couldn't charge phone. Tiny screen with limited entertainment. Archaic system. No recognition of one world Sappire status. Bad food options, chicken or veg only. Very "grey" Englush Breakfast. Dinner food option not as announced. The entire experience was poor. Grumpy crew who seemed flustered and were not paying attention to service."
Pros: "The crew s oustanding. They were courteous, helpful, very professional and made the flying experience a pleasure for my family. With respect to the Miami ticket agents, there are 3 people I want to highlight for excellent service. Denise, who courteously accommodated our family and rescheduled our flight as needed, another young lady who checked us in. She was sensitive to our party of 5 and was extremely pleasant. The check in process was chaotic at best and she helped make it a pleasant experience. The person is Diane, the manager at the Miami airport. She helped bring order to a completely disorganized check in process and ended up personally escorting us through security toe sure that we made our flight on time. Diane is an excellent leader."
Cons: "The check in process was completely disorganized, due to a cancelled flight from Miami to Heathrow the night before. And there were 3 scheduled flights already that people were checking in for as well. There had to have been at least 600+ people in line to check in, plus those from the night before. The Miami airport doesn't have kiosks for passengers to easily check in and bag drop, which doesn't make sense in such a large and busy international airport. That would have made a huge difference in this case. Also, we paid for our seats to select them prior to 24 hours and we ended up not sitting together."
Pros: "I Like the check in process, the punctuality of the flight"
Cons: "The food was terrible, they kept me waiting for my strolley on LHR for over half an hour!"
Pros: "I especially liked our seats (we were in the exit row and had plenty of leg room); the crew, and the food."
Cons: "What we didn't like couldn't be helped: there were crying babies and a snorting gentleman."
Pros: "BA's customer service was excellent and they helped us out by getting on the next plane with minimal delay ... By 4 hours."
Cons: "I was told a 2 hour transit time would be sufficient but when we arrived in London, we had to go through several gates with long lines at Terminal 5. I was leary that this was achievable without the long lines but on this day, we couldn't even get past the first gate before they told us that we will miss our connecting flight."
Pros: "Crew and choice of movies were excellent"
Cons: "Loading sucked. They couldn't keep those that are not boarding yet out of the way for those in the back of the plane to board first. Made one comment to the crowd and then gave up."
Pros: "Hello I saw charged the ticket twice !!!! Thank you"
Pros: "First time on the huge Airbus. It was fantastic. Romy and comfortable"
Cons: "Reclining of seat back became a bit uncomfortable"
Pros: "Nice spacious seats"
Cons: "That you checked my carry-on"
Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "The crew was helpful and nice. The food was also nice. I had a gluten free meal and it was enjoyable."
Cons: "The plane itself was old there were no tvs on the seats so the "in flight entertainment" was awful. When you plugged headphones in there was an awful noise that prevented you from hearing anything from the movie/show. Considering this was a transatlantic flight, the plane should have been better. We were also delayed due to maintenance that needed to be done on the flight. Luckily London was my last stop so I was not late for anymore flights but a lot of people on the plane were. I was very disappointed and will be disappointed again if my return flight has the same issues."
Pros: "The staff were all very helpful and efficient."
Cons: "Everything about this flight was miserable. AVOID BRITISH AIRWAYS AT ALL COSTS!"
Pros: "On time, no crashes"
Cons: "Extremely uncomfortable, hardly any room to breath"
Cons: "Seats were very cramped (as elsewhere) and I wish there were truly vegetarian options among the main options without having to order special meals. Otherwise good experience."
Pros: "The A380 from LA, was new and clean. Crew friendly and service efficient."
Cons: "Seems like each new airplane reduces space for passengers in economy. There are just so many seats you and squeeze in. I am not a tall person, and certainly not overweight, and I felt crammed in the seat. I feel sorry for people who are tall and big. They must have a terrible time. The older 767 from Heathrow to Athens was MUCH more spacious and comfortable. I can't afford business class and certainly not first class. Economy has been squeezed beyond logical levels. Good was so so. Not to my taste. The chicken with mashed potatoes was rubbery and mashed didn't even taste like potatoes. Other than that, trip was on time. So that helped."
Pros: "the window seats have no leg room. There is an entertainment box under every window seat so there is no room for your legs or small bag. I was in pain the last 7 hours of the flight due to leg cramps & spasms."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Pros: "We took off with an hour delay but we caught up so there were no delays in London. Smooth flight. The guy at check in was great, very helpful and pleasant (I forgot his name unfortunately)."
Cons: "-The crew was pretty unfriendly. They did not smile and one crew basically yelled at me becasue he did not hear my reply when he asked what I want for dinner so instead of asking politely again he started to yell at me "Chicken or pasta?'"- I think Allistair was his name. The other lady also came across rude to me when she said "You have to speak up becasue I cant hear you!"- sorry, English is not my first language but I think the polite way should have been "Sorry m'am I could not hear you, could you please spak up?" - entertainment needs better selection"
Pros: "The plane itself is big enough which makes the ride quite comfortable and less subject to turbulence."
Cons: "Seats do not recline much in economy but that is expected."
Pros: "Breakfast was good and a surprise. Short flight so did not watch any entertainment. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Checking in at main desk was chaos. Waited in line forever only to be overcharged for my second checked bag compared to their website rate. Inefficient people manning the desks. Boarding was just as chaotic. Crew acted new/disorganized. Seats extremely hard, very little padding. Old plane."
Cons: "My checked bag did not make it to London, and it’s really affected my short stay which requires a lot of traveling around England."
Cons: "Don’t delay flights that messed my return"
Cons: "This flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Even with some departure delays we landed on time."
Cons: "The plane could have used some cosmetic detailing. The door to a cabinet in the bathroom would not shut and caused a problem with people being able to close the bathroom door."
Pros: "Every thing was ok"
Cons: "I was not able to check in online"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful"
Cons: "Food could've been better"
Pros: "Our seats were very comfirtabke"
Cons: "Nothing, it was all great!"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Seating and not so friendly"
Pros: "Heathrow Airport has a lot of stores to keep you occupied"
Cons: "Late notice of where our gate was located. By the time we got the news, we went to our gate and the people were already boarding"
Pros: "That I arrived"
Cons: "Iberia flight was delayed by 45 minutes causing me to miss my connection from London to Dublin."
Cons: "In flight entertainment didn't work and crew wasn't concerned and didn't do anything about it."
Pros: "seat is comfort"
Cons: "I stopped at the Iberia check-in at Barajas in Madrid. They sent me to BA check-in, where I waited 45 minutes to find out that I should be at Iberia check-in. Then, Iberia check-in had to send me to last minute clerk or I would have missed my flight. Last minute check-in ended up being the same place and same clerk I began with."
Cons: "A porter checked our bags at the gate without asking us whether we were traveling beyond London, so the bags were never transferred to the transatlantic flight nor did they arrive in SF. It wasn't necessary to check them because there was plenty of room in the overhead bins when we got on the flight. We immediately asked a flight attendant to help when I realized they might not go through and he said he spoke to someone who caught and tagged the bags to go through, but it still didn't happen. It would have been easier if he had just brought them to us on the plane. Another women's bag was taken with all her baby supplies and bottles in it for a 16-hour travel day. Very frustrating for all of us."
Cons: "Mistake Kayak or its subcontractor made in listing the name of my wife incorrectly. This created a real hassle in getting a boarding pass in her name"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and cabin was clean . There was no entertainment so I gave that question a 3 star not that it was bad."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything I didn’t like"
Pros: "The flight was short"
Cons: "They didn't even give out water on the flight. Not to happy with the service"
Cons: "Food could have been better."
Cons: "There was no complimentary water or beverages"
Cons: "Very pleased with overall service and hospitality"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Check in was terrible, did no allow online and on the desk a lot of misinformation which sent me to different desks for check in. Personnel Needs training!!l"
Cons: "Upon boarding the aircraft was really hot, I was sweating in my seat... I did not receive any complementary drinks or snacks."
Pros: "Movies, no delays"
Cons: "Luggage was not documented correctly to my final destination by Iberia"
Cons: "Very limited room to move. Rather impersonal"
Cons: "They forced us to check our bags at the gate even though we had an international connection to make in London--to continue flying to Chicago. As a result, we had to go through customs and security in London, and would have most definitely missed our connecting flight back home to the States if not for a woman in customs at Heathrow who let us cut to the front of the line. I will never fly Iberia again and will be lodging a formal complaint."
Cons: "No free snacks or drinks"
Cons: "Chair design very uncomfortable. Food was for sale - I find that really cheap. It's a two-hour flight. Drinks and snacks should be part of the package."
Pros: "Easy check in and comfortable seats"
Cons: "Seats are tiny. No legroom."
Cons: "Too little time to connect with another flight at Heathrow. Missed my connecting flight. Why is there an additional security checkpoint at Heathrow when you've already been thru security at another airport? Poor design for international arrivals."
Pros: "Standard EU flight, on time"
Cons: "Had to buy food and the sandwiches were soggy. Wouldn't accept credit cards at first, staff tried to push cash payment until finally getting a different credit card readee that worked."
Pros: "Short 2 hour hop to Heathrow, adequate seating, nothing challenging about this flight. Barcelona airport is very user friendly, open and expansive. Service was good on the flight."
Cons: "Landed at heathrow, which is a sprawling airport and plenty of time required for the endless walking, bussing, and subway connections between terminals and gates. But efficient."
Pros: "Everything was delightful, definitely my best ever flight!"
Pros: "The flight overall was very comfortable and the crew were very accommodating and attentive."
Cons: "About halfway through the flight got diverted to drop off a critically ill passenger, so instead of it being an 11 hour flight, it was a 16.5 hour flight. Not anyone's fault, but still incredibly inconvenient."
Pros: "The crew was fabulous! And the ride was on time and had plenty of entertainment."
Cons: "My only complaint is that the seats were very tight in the economy class. We were packed like cattle. I know these were the "cheap" seats but for almost $1500 I would hope for a bit more comfort."
Cons: "There was bad weather which understandably caused delays, however the communication during this eventual 16 hour delay was horrendous. We were told for the first two hours that we would be delayed each hour and then they would make a decision to delay another hour. This went on for 4 hours (the last two hours of which we did not receive any updates). The flight was originally scheduled to leave at 8:10. At 12:30am we were told our plane was at the gate and being prepared for us to board and the agent giving announcements said we were "guaranteed to leave TONIGHT". At 1am we were told that unfortunately the plane got to the gate just a bit too late and not the crew are not legally allowed to fly and the flight would be pushed back until 8am. At the time, I thought 7 hours was strange and I'd assume the crew would need more like 8-10 hours to rest. Unfortunately because we were told so late, all hotels were booked up. I live in NYC and would've gone home for the night however because we needed to be back by 6am (what the agent suggested), there seemed no point in leaving. We were not provided with any pillows or blankets until 4 in the morning. At 6am the next morning, we were told the crew needed "more rest time" and that our new departure time would be 9:30. How is it that the crew now needs more time? Shouldn't that have been figured out at 1am? Before we board, one of the agents thinks they will "lighten the mood" with the following comment - "Who would've thought a little bad weather would've caused this?" Absolutely not a time for jokes and people were very angry. We finally board for what we think is finally a 9:30am take off. No - now two new issues - 1, the co pilot is late (LATE? how can you be late when a flight has been delayed 16 hours) and 2, they needed to remove package from the plane for people who were no longer taking this flight. In the end, we took off around 11:30am which messed up a lot of peoples connecting flights, pick ups at the airport, etc. I will never fly this airline again."
Pros: "Guests were boarded quickly. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Food was tasteless and bland. Crew was not very attentive."
Cons: "The fight from Chicago to London was a nightmare."
Pros: "Best transatlantic flight for a long time. More legroom quiet and delays were communicated well"
Cons: "Would have liked another couple rounds of water"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "No food or drink offered except for if the customer pays for them, very poor idea."
Pros: "Loved the gluten free meal option."
Pros: "Spaciousness of aircraft, comfort of aircraft (vibration, noise)"
Cons: "not enough leg room. and i have to point out that I am a petite 110 lbs, 5'2" woman. although the flight is short, a complimentary snack and drink would have been nice. instead, you had to pay for anything you wanted. prices on top of that, were exaggerated. very disappointing."
Pros: "I requested special assistance (wheelchair) at the last minute, no problem. Plane left on time and arrived early. Fodder was OK, no great. Complimentary wine on the international flight I'd appreciated! Staff very friendly and efficient. Nice job, American Airlines!"
Cons: "Didn't have individual TV screens, not really a biggie, but it is nice when that I'd available."
Pros: "Great flight attendants."
Cons: "Plane needs wi fi and USB ports. It was a dinosaur ! Cramped seating. Expensive!"
Pros: "Good movie selection"
Cons: "VERY cramped"
Pros: "The flight from Raleigh to Heathrow London was LONG, so I especially enjoyed the wine being included without extra cost! Wine helped me to relax, read, & survive the long sleepless night!"
Pros: "In flight movie selection was good."
Cons: "Food was palatable."
