Cons: "Seat was shockingly small, even for economy class. TV was poor quality."
Cons: "We were bussed to the plane, there were long dark hairs on my pillow, and they are generous with snacks at close intervals, but the food could be much better. The ideas are cute, but the actual food is pretty basic, which is disappointing for Virgin, who I hold in high regard. Or did."
Pros: "The crew was outstanding and the good choices were excellent"
Cons: "The flight was late( not their fault) and there were several technical difficulties with the A/C and entertainment system"
Pros: "Smooth overall. Food mediocre but edible. (More than I could say for other airlnes.) Price also good."

Pros: "Super friendly and helpful crew, food etc was fantastic very enjoyable flight. Thank you"
Pros: "Fabulous flight, light on passengers, so excellent service given by the crew. Virgin goes the extra mile on service and little perks. 747-400 planes also very comfortable, compared to the Airbus 320,"
Cons: "Nothing. Trip both ways were outstanding."
Pros: "The rear section of the plane had lots of room (empty seats), enough to lay down across three seats. Pleasant and helpful crew."

Pros: "Fast boarding, not a crowded flight, ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Paid extra for my check in bag."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and attentive"

Cons: "Everything incl customer service at the airport"
Pros: "Great, friendly, professional crew, clean comfortable plane. Loved that full dinner and baggage and wine was included in an economy class overnight from DC to London as well as breakfast. Best flight in a long time, will definitely fly again."
Cons: "the tv screen's touch screen capabilities could use an upgrade, it was a hassle to navigate, not very sensitive to touch."
Cons: "The plane seemed to be a little bit old, especially entertaining equipment"
Pros: "Service and food are good. Crew very friendly and tries to please everyone."
Cons: "Chair could be more comfortable compared to other seats who transform without turning over. Still - much much better than BA."
Cons: "Older media entertainment screen with hard to use touch interface."
Pros: "The crew and food were excellent. A little more space between seats would be appreciated. The entertainment equipment was not intuitive or easy to operate. I still feel the airline did a great job getting us to London on-time and a pleasant flight."
Pros: "Lovely food and staff. Lots of food."
Cons: "The seat pocket in front of me was broken. I didn't want to make a fuss but one would have thought during checks pre-flight that should have been noticed and rectified. I was flying with my family including my 4 yr old and we had lots of toys to keep her entertained but had no where to put them apart from on our seats and tables when we were allowed to have them down."
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: "Crew was very solicitous...food was quite good.."
Cons: "Baggage was very slow in arriving. ..45-60 minutes"
Cons: "I had to run for almost 2 miles every time I had to change the flight. On the way to India they lost my one bag, and on the way back to US they lost my both begs."

Cons: "no complaints whatsoever!"

Cons: "the wifi had subpar performance"
Pros: "Seat is very comfortable"
Cons: "After 14 hours the seats were like sitting on spikes"
Pros: "The food was AMAZING. No, seriously. Everything we had was great."
Pros: "Amazing food and drinks, and to top it off we were served a frozen ice cream treat during our flight."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly, and helpful. I also liked that the exit row that I was given had more than enough leg room, the dinner was really good for airplane food and snacks were great also. The attendant that I had for my section also told me that all food and drinks were free so they gave me a few extra adult drinks here and there which is a plus for how long the flight was going to be. The movie selection is great also having some on there that are still in theaters is a huge plus."
Cons: "The boarding process seemed way out of order, they made so many mistakes and nobody knew what to do, then you have the pushy passengers that are sitting coach getting mad that you're boarding before them. Breakfast left me wanting something else, lets just say this if you are given the choice of something vs french toast, take the something."
Cons: "Very small leg room"
Cons: "Food was awful. Sorry. Breakfast was unrecognizable. Landed hungry."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The floor at our feet had been spilled on during a previous flight and not cleaned. Bag was lost and not returned for 5 days. Crew during flight was flippant and disinterested in service...unless you were Economy+."
Pros: "Smooth boarding process"
Cons: "Delays caused us to miss our flight from London to Vienna"
Pros: "Flight okay and staff attentive. Seats still to close together. Had to purchase seat to guarantee not be in middle rows. Plane very warm throughout flight."
Cons: "Selection of entertainment good but touch screen very unresponsive. Hard to change volume and maneuver. Ear sets would not stay connected."
Pros: "Staff was top notch in service and kindness"
Pros: "Friendly, helpful, efficient staff on the ground & in the air. Great selection of movies, tv, music for each person flying. Comfortable flight. Great beverage & food choices."
Pros: "Nothing - except the toilets with tabs for lifting the seat & adjustable headrest. They forgot to load our toiletries overnight pack too!"
Cons: "The 787 has vastly inadequate Economy toilets - ONLY 4! For 200 passengers. Inadequate lighting for,boarding, unable to activate reading lights until AFTER TAKEOFF = groping in semi darkness, BAD! No window blinds = woken up by blazing sun in middle of 11 hr night flight, even with sleeping pills my sleep was wrecked, even with eyemask. Passengers penned in on narrow aisles by trolleys, unable to walk around plane & risk of DVT. Passengers disempowered by restricted space, lighting, mobility. I want more control over my personal mobility &, lighting. Horrible headsets (bring my own). This flight departed 2.5 HRs LATE from JHB & the crew & cavin service was SLOW. NO requested second cup of tea brought - I waited 20 mins & climbed over trolleys to get another one, even though it was requested of cabin crew. Do they just ignore us? Or forget?"
Pros: "On time, everything normal."
Cons: "Seat space so small that my knees were up against the next seat, even without it tilting back."
Pros: "Wifi worked very well"
Cons: "Jave to pay for everything on an overseas flight"
Cons: "Crew had poor communication, didn't seem friendly or helpful, no food given for free and no warnings fhat this was the case. Flight was delayed at takeoff And they did not accurately tell us how long the delay was"
Cons: "They tried checking my carryon luggage because they said it was overweight and it would be $130. This is absurd, especially since it isn't going to change in weight by getting checked. I refused to pay this amount. The flight was also 3 hours delayed, almost missed my connection back to the states from SYD. Other international flights offer free meal service, you were lucky if you got water on this flight and had to pay for any snacks."
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: "The space you have with your legs is sufficient and the chairs are very comfortable. The food was really nice. I enjoyed the trip, although it was a long one."
Pros: "I liked entertainment options on your phone but at the same time there was nowhere to plug your phone if it ran out of battery."
Cons: "The boarding was good but we did not depart o time which did not cause us to be on time to our destination. It was international flight for almost 4 hours and there was no foodie snacks serve. Only tea or coffee. For a international flight more than 2 hours you should offer something else, soda juices and a snack at the very least. I guess the reason why I am feeling this ways is because I flew with virgin a couple years back to London and was so impressed by he service and the airline and the great quality modern vibe. It was the W hotels of the airlines industry and this time I really want impressed."
Pros: "Professionalism value of service"
Cons: "let me think...."
Pros: "The meals were very small and not very tasty. Economy appears to have lost staff as it takes the entire flight to get a drink and dinner, the feeling you get is that you should just get on board and then sit quietly for 7 hours and not ask for anything. The entertainment does not have a very large selection and if you fly regularly does not seem to update very often."
Pros: "Feel like reacist Company"
Cons: "I didnt like the treatment of the crew."
Pros: "Seats ok. Crew is super. Drinks offered"
Cons: "Nothing, AF rocks"
Pros: "Upgrade was easy! Crew was beyond exceptionable! Can’t wait to fly again, guys!"
Pros: "The rest area"
Cons: "The airport was cold and it should be warmer"
Pros: "The seats were bigger across the shoulder area and had more padding than some other budget airlines."
Cons: "Wish there was more elbow room in the seat. I am a big guy and I was having to squish myself so as to not interfere with my neighbor"
Pros: "The gentleman at the check out his name was Omar went over and above the call of duty for Customer Service me being an American he walked me through each step of using flybe via air France and paying for checking my bags and even the carry on luggage and getting me through security etc."
Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Had to use a shoe horn to get into and out of my seat and I'm not a large guy. But really my harsh criticism comes from the loss of my girlfriends luggage. It was left behind in Paris on our way to Casablanca causing us to waste a day in Casablanca traveling back to the airport the grab the bag the next day. And to add injury to insult her bag was left behind in JFK during our transfer for our flight to Seattle. No big deal right, Delta will deliver the bag to our house the next day, wrong, we were told we have to go to the airport ourselves to get the bag."
Pros: "I've never been on a flight with such narrow seat and thin cushion. There was no entertainment offered for the almost 4 hour flight. There was no means of charging any electronic gears. The airplane seems to be 30 years behind time. Crew was unfriendly and smiling faces are not part of the uniform."
Cons: "Very narrow seats and thim cushion. No entertainment offered an do means of recharging electronic devices."
Pros: "Crew was attentive. Timings were spot on."
Cons: "Virtually no information at boarding which made everybody just make a huge line. Boarding they a bus, it was raining and we got wet."
Cons: "the tray was broken and the water felt all over. the flight was 1 hr delayed. All of us stood the 1 hr waiting to know what's next. We could sit."
Pros: "Incredible staff. Super polite"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "In flight complimentary food and drink service could have been better."
Pros: "Great food and friendly crew."
Cons: "Seatback system was old and not very functional."
Cons: "Crew forced me to change my upgraded comfort seat to accommodate a 12 year old who they knew was going to be airsick. So I spent the first half of the flight next to a vomiting girl. Only after I asked to file a complaint, they allowed me one of two empty seats in premium. Terrible customer service."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Food was excellent"
Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "The snacks that were handed out prior to landing were not very good and it looked as though a lot of people in our section felt the same way. Also, there were a lot of empty seats in the comfort and premium sections, but non of our gold medallions were offered an upgrade."
Pros: "Tight seat, was moved out of exit row because of my age"
Cons: "Could have stayed in exit row. Plan arrived in Moscow late so flight was over one hour late"
Cons: "Baggage check in was stressful"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and the food was excellent."
Pros: "En deux mots, tout était médiocre, avion, « nourriture » (si on appeler ça comme ça) même les hôtesses travaillaient avec une sale gueule.. Très déçu d’Air France"
Cons: "Le capitain et l’aterrisage"
Pros: "Flight crew, pilot,food and entertainment options were great"
Cons: "Baggage took a while to reach baggage claim but maybe a bit impatient after a long day"
Cons: "Long delays to go through security screening and then further delays as the plane was still being fueled at departure time."
Pros: "Great service, decent food"
Cons: "There was no WiFi on the plane"
Cons: "I didn’t have time to make it through customs. Missed my flight"
Pros: "The food was okay and the staff were friendly."
Cons: "My seat and several others around me were broken so that they would fall all the way back if we leaned back at all. The entertainment system kept crashing and forgetting what shows everyone on board we’re watching. There were no air vents to control. The games crashed constantly. The usb hubs didn’t work."
Pros: "Good seat width Great movie selection Great food and drinks Nice and large A380"
Cons: "The interface of the screens seemed old Need to anticipate the needs of the customer better For example, they brought me my special meal first, but I had to wait 30 minutes later to get a drink to accompany it. The food was getting old. Did not see any newspaper/periodical selection. That would have been nice."
Cons: "I did not like that i was in the bulkhead and there was not sufficient overhead storage for us. The bin was only big enough for 1 backpack. 2 of the 3 of us in that row had to go 2 rows back to store our luggage. This is very inconvenient when deboarding because I have to wait for many others to pass before I get a chance to walk towards the back of the plane to get my luggage."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and professional. The food very good"
Cons: "First the plane was delayed because of a technical issue that I think they should check before The plane was crowded and old."
Pros: "I like the service. They caring and give snacks, comfort and overall"
Cons: "None. I like everything"
Cons: "Horrible Crew..."
Pros: "The space and the people"
Pros: "great seat, good food and drink, pleasant staff, efficient boarding and exit."
Cons: "no complaints"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "no vegeterian sandwiches very disappointed"
Pros: "Very old plane with very poor screens where images was horrible"
Pros: "Missed connection and it was airport not Delta that was the problem. Not a good way to start a vacation. Rating is for the Paris Airport, not the flight crew or Air France employees. Still sitting in the airport when we should be at our destination."
Cons: "Hundreds of people missed their flights. Delta had us into Paris with an hour and a half to get to connecting flight. Missed flight due to huge delay in passport approval. They seemed completely unprepared."
Pros: "No delays, service with a smile"
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Pros: "Chicako Párizs szuper , udvarias személyzet pontos érkezés."
Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "I feel comfortable flying when I can see out the window so don't force me to close my window shade.The flight attendants kept forcing me to close my shade. Also new planes would be nice. Sick of flying on outdated technology."
Pros: "I am a 70 year old woman with reduced mobility. The flight attendants made sure that I was given an aisle seat and they helped me find a seat with two empty ones next to me. The crew could not have been kinder."
Cons: "There is nothing I did not like."
Cons: "Poor communication. Did not know was airfrance the booking was completed with Austria airline. In the ticket was not the information. Also, airfrance could not find me in their systems I was late to board the plane. Terrible messy and confusing time for me."
Cons: "Couldn't adjust the seat and the cushion wasn't comfortable neither seat or back. The bottom back was like a board across the bottom and hurts."
Pros: "movies were great, watched a lot of them food, while nothing to write home about, was at least tasty and not inedible the staff was great, friendly, welcoming, hard working loved that we could have wine and snacks"
Cons: "we had paid for the exit row and had a luxurious amount of room. But when we tried to sleep, our fellow passengers came and stood at our feet and talked so loudly that we could not possibly sleep. They stayed there for more than an hour. Would have loved for the staff to maybe ask them to tone it down, if not move."
Pros: "Good food. Although no Cappucino as in AF from Sanfransisco to Paris."
Cons: "No entertainment at al. Specifically, I could not lean my seat b/c of a mom with a baby behind me..."
Pros: "Although plane was full staff moved us through quickly"
Pros: "I liked their seats, I had enough space to get comfortable flying internationally for 14 hours."
Cons: "Just wish they served water a couple times more, because when you're in the plane for the whole day, 2-3 little cups isn't enough."
Pros: "I have been Flying Blue platinum for six years in a row. I often wondered why I never got a complimentary upgrade... Well, I can no longer complain: I was very kindly invited to move across that curtain. Of course, in short haul (2-hours+) A321 flights, all seats are created equal, business or main cabin... But the attention was there, excellent service, and gourmet food too. The whole experience was great. I'll go on flying Air France with fewer regrets."
Pros: "The crew was great and food very good"
Cons: "The purchase through a third party vendor on Kayak was a disaster. disclosure was not given about class of service purchased and limitations of that class of service. I spent so much on luggage costs and change fees I could have purchased first class. I will never book through Kayak again - will always go straight to the airline for purchase. This was a disaster."
Cons: "They made me checkin a small bag"
Pros: "Crew was courteous and friendly."
Cons: "The food was fantastic also the crew."
Pros: "Moving to window seat appreciated"
Pros: "Nothing! Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "My flight Paris/London/Manchester?Chicago was the mos impleasant experience I ever had. On July the flight was schedule for 9...pm then delayed for two hours because of a fire, other passengers said, in London. At around 11pm, we were asked to line up for boarding. We stayed on line for an hour and fnally to be told the flight was cancelled. We were treated less than animals by British Airway. No ACCOMODATION!!!!!!!! No ACCOMODATION!!!!!!! We slept on benches at the airport. To be fair to you, I will not recommend British Airway to anyone."
Pros: "very pleasant attendants. good amount of snacks and drinks. good entertainment options"
Cons: "a bit crammed"
Pros: "Had to deboard onto the tarmac via a set of stairs as the connecting ramp was not working. A little difficult for me due to mobility issues. However, the crew voluntarily saw me struggling and took down my suitcase, very nice!"
Pros: "Effortless flight from CDG to LHR before returning home to New York. Had the opportunity to spend a night in London to visit a couple friends and some of my favorite shops in town. BA kept my checked bag so I didn’t have to lug a suitcase around for my 19 hour layover."
Cons: "The ticket agents in CDG wasn’t the friendliest from such a well respected brand but zero complaints considering the deal I got to spend a week in Paris!"
Pros: "Free wine and drinks with dinner"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for two hours. One hour on the tarmac. Missed the connecting flight to Munich and even though there were two flights BA could have booked us on while in the air they did not. We had to stand in a long queue 1.5 hrs to change our flight to the last one out and arrived at 10pm instead of 2pm. Also, the dreamliner Economy seating is a nightmare. Sardines thats what passengers are to BA. Never again."
Pros: "Lucky enough to get an empty seat next to us."
Cons: "Forced to gate check a bag for no reason; there was plenty of room and other similar bags were allowed through."
Pros: "The fact that the flight was short and not full. Crew were pleasant and business like"
Cons: "There was nothing to not like"
Pros: "I love the fact that I was able to find a good price for the tickets...JUST THAO"
Cons: "The fact that the flight was delayed and they didn’t tell about it until 1.30-2 hours before leaving...and that because we pressured them other wise they wouldn’t even bother to announce us. So sorry you guys don’t have another rating UNDER POOR BECAUSE I WOULD LOVE TO GIVE IT TO YOU...."
Pros: "The crew & procedures were excellent. Perfect timing. I had a book to read & I meditated during the flight, so I didn't need the available entertainment--thus the N/A rating in that category. Perfect timing."
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable."
Pros: "Crew was great. Process of boarding and disembarking was fine."
Cons: "Space in regards to seating is inadequate"
Pros: "A few of us were held up on the tram. The doors were shut And they held the plane and accommodated us. For that I give 10 stars. I will always try to book British Air first"
Pros: "Friendly crew, spacious and comfortable seating and great food"
Pros: "Quick boarding!"
Cons: "Snack trolley didn't reach the back seats due to the shortness of the flight. The only entertainment was an in flight magazine!"
Pros: "Reasonable comfort."
Cons: "Very slow baggage pickup at the airport."
Cons: "I have to pay for water?????"
Cons: "Missed connection due to delays on previous flight"
Pros: "Quick flight. Was late leaving but made up time in the air."
Cons: "Not enough time to serve folks while in flight. Consider taking orders in the Departure Lounge before boarding flight."
Cons: "cramped and very warm"
Pros: "I thought British Airways was a better airline. I hope they do better job to when I return back to my home next mointh!"
Pros: "Short flight"
Pros: "Capt informative pertaining to delay"
Cons: "Had to pay for drinks and food"
Cons: "Only food options had to be purchased. Not even coffee was offerrrd."
Pros: "What you expect on commuter hop, no problems."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Nice crew, comfy plane, quick flight. Allowed us to board past time due to long waits in security."
Cons: "Food/ beverages only offered with a charge, NO entertainment despite having individual screens (couldn't even watch flight path). Crew a but obsessive with seatbelts."
Cons: "Wish water had been available For free London to Framkfurt"
Pros: "The staff are friendly and cheerful. No food or entertainment for the short donestic flight (as would be expected anywhere for a 50 min flight)"
Cons: "Boarding badly organised ... signs telling you where to queue are double sided and depending which side you see first direct you into the wrong lane... Left a bit late but arrived pretty much on time. Baggage didn't arrive after a 2 hour transfer and this is the third time in four times over the past few years. I strongly do not recommend BA as a domestic UK connection after an international arrival."
Pros: "Nothing notable"
Cons: "Nothing is complementary"
Pros: "we landed"
Cons: "flight had a two hours delay flight attendants were rude and obnoxious will never fly on british airways ever again they shouldnt be allowed to drive people let alone fly them london is just fog and ugly faces british airways' customer service is the equivalent of wisdom teeth: they exist but no one seems to know why they should delete their airline altogether"
Pros: "Back facing window seat, flat bed, great service, good food, arrival ahead of time"
Pros: "Comfortable night, pleasant crew. The food was pretty good, and the flight attendants were attentive. I didn't have to ask for refills on drinks, etc. They also seem to get along well with each other, which makes for more relaxing trip."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Plane was new and clean. Entertainment selections were good. Lots of food and drink served. Lots infomercial space for carry on bags."
Cons: "Seating is cramped in Coach. The headrests on the seats have a tendency to push your head forward when the seat is in an upright position. When the seat in front of you reclines, it is difficult to cross your legs or reach for something stored under the seat. It seems to me that given how long passengers are in their seats on overseas trips, that seating should be more comfortable."
Cons: "The drop down food trays were dirty and we had to ask an assistant to clean them. The light refreshments were served late - we were landing just as they were handing out the drinks."
Pros: "AA has domestic US mkt. monopoly - they don't care to improve. People will not stop traveling so take them for suckers!!!"
Cons: "On flight service"
Pros: "Easy flight to Athens"
Cons: "Rude agents on the ground in London were very unprofessional making comments about American travelers."
Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "not a lot of leg room. Took a while to board."
Cons: "It was extremely hot on the plane. for the first 30 minutes there was no ac available and there was little to no help from the staff. I asked for water to cool myself down and ov waited about ten minutes to get it after hitting my help button multiple times. The flight attendants may have been overwhelmed with the requests as there were many just like me who struggled so they came off very rude. The plane was also not updated at all - not personal entertainment and once again, no ac/air for people to control."
Pros: "Helpful, friendly and kind!!"
Pros: "The crew on this BA flight were nice and pleasant even in the back back section,B"
Cons: "Boarding was a free for all, no discipline at all, people pushing and shoving awful."
Pros: "The flight over out of JFK"
Cons: "I could not reach anyone customer service regarding my return flight. We I called BA they told me I needed to contact Kayak. When I contacted Kayak they told me to contact BA. As I result I missed my flight. I would like customer service to reach me asap."
Pros: "Entertainment and crew were good"
Cons: "We booked our flight three months ago and my friend was bumped from the flight since they overbooked. They were still selling tickets up until the flight. They didn't ask for volunteers but somehow picked her. When I asked if I could stay with her, I was told that I would have to buy a new ticket for the other flight. Also they were very rude while explaining it. Not impressed. Also the flight was delayed because they didn't start boarding on time and then we sat on the runway for about 30 min."
Cons: "Is way below par when compared to emirates or any other international airlines"
Pros: "The crew was nice and comforting."
Cons: "Very old equipment."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and accomodating given the delays and the change of planes"
Cons: "The plane was delayed an hour and a half. They had to change the gate twice. The worst part was the plane. The original plane had a problem and they replaced it with a tiny everyday commercial jet for a 7 hour flight. It was extremely uncomfortable and I felt like I got a bit robbed because of how expensive the flight was."
Pros: "You got us there safely."
Cons: "Not sure who is at fault for running out of de-ice solution, but keeping us sitting on the tarmac without air ventilation for almost 3 hours... with only an apology and a last minute glass of water? that was terrible customer service."
Pros: "Flight did not take place because of cancelled return flight. the whole itinerary was cancelled."
Cons: "because of cancelled flight I had to schedule a new itinerary directly through American Airlines. The cost increased from $947.50 to $1,873 plus airport parking for 17 days."
Pros: "The availability of entertainment on board. The hot meal was good."
Cons: "The seats were cramped for such a long flight."
Pros: "We got to our destination safely, and American provided us with extra legroom seats."
Cons: "Service was curt and there was only phone-based entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable and boarding was a pain. Not sure why you wouldn’t want to board from the back to front. Weather grounded us at our loading airport so we were stuck with the option of staying the flight or going in the lobby."
Pros: "When i got off the plane"
Cons: "Food was worse than prison food. It was a full flight and my entertainment screen did not work for half the flight from phl to man. Several times i was told its bein reset over the hours. Every other screen seemed to be working. I paid $1600 for this flight as it was booked a week beforhand as my mother got really sick and needed to be here. Honestly, never again. Over priced,horrible food and no workin tv. Expect more for the price. Will be my last time using them after years of doin so"
Cons: "Nothing. It was cancelled with little to none explanation"
Pros: "The flight was what one would expect from a domestic airline. They did provide free movies/tv which was nice. It was one time to leave and on time to arrive."
Pros: "Efficient crew"
Cons: "Very full no isle seat!"
Cons: "I was traveling today with my daughter, who is 6 months pregnant, my 3 1/2 & 18 month old grandsons, my husband & son-in law on an international flight from Chicago to Manchester. I was very disappointed a 757 was used for an international flight! No attempt was made by staff to accomodate our family with a extra seat for the infant, even though there were a large number of rows with empty middle seats (4 of which were directly behind them!) The 1st indication of the beginning of the NIGHTMARE was when the plane arrived in Chicago and overshot the gate, this caused almost an hour delay! (We heard our crew saying "oops" while looking out the window at the plane arriving & then again when they were discussing it would have been faster if the plane had used a different method to get to the gate again.) This was then followed by a mechanical problem with a frozen water valve, requiring us to be de-iced x2! Then we started to taxi out and again had to return because of a hydraulic problem that required repair. I think we were delayed almost 3.5 hours. The crew did bring a round of water during the onground delays, and offered free drinks later in the flight. The icing on the cake was not getting the stroller back at the gate because there were no baggage handlers. I can't tell you how much FUN that was trying to corral a toddler & 3yr old with all our carry-on bags while getting thru customs! Did I mention in our haste to get off that plane we overlooked my daughter's winter maternity coat in the overhead! May be time to switch to the Friendlier Skies of United for our UK travel!"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant on Christmas Day. Landing was smooth!"
Cons: "I booked in August to get the flight and seats I'd prefer. I paid extra to NOT get center aisle center seats, but that is exactly where they put us!! I should get a refund on that extra money I paid for those seats that we did not get. Also, I booked British Air and was put on American Airlines. I sure hope the seats home are what we chose and paid extra for. So disappointed. Feels a bit like fraud to pay extra for something and not receive it."
Cons: "Me 6’ 200 lb sitting in middle seat next to somebody that needed 2 seats for self (pls understand I’m not unsensetive nor prejudice just stating a fact). I requested to sit in last row (of both sides of plane that were empty but attendant said sears reserved for attendants - 2)."
Cons: "Your airline charges a significant amount for what is to be an upgraded seating experience. What a huge disappointment. Same number of seats as basic economy, same seat size as basic economy, no separation of any sort for the rest of economy main cabin. Will never fly American international again."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Again, it was sold as a British airways flight when it was an American airlines flight."
Pros: "To be fair. The flight is only 50 minutes. By th time you get a drink it's time to land. It is completely unfair to the staff to have to do that. A flight like that. Have a box with a snack and some coolers that have 5 different beverages. I wouldn't even sell booze. I person can hold out for a flight that shot to get one on the connection or in the terminal."
Cons: "It's always a cramped flight. Nothing to be done except use a bigger, more spacious plane. The good thing is it's the fastest way to get to Chicago from where I lived it would take 6hrs by car."
Pros: "Spacious seats"
Pros: "Mostly friendly staff and quick flight time."
Cons: "Only half the plane got snacks and drinks. Additionally, I was forced to check my bag, which is a pretty big deal because I was connecting to an international flight and was unable to retrieve my prescriptions in all the rush to check my bag."
Pros: "Piolet tried to fly higher and faster to reduce time. Good job"
Cons: "Flight delayed by over hour. Desk crew could have been there to help us make decisions but were not. There was no one to ask about connecting flight gates. When we got off in philly there was someone to give directions to connecting flights. That was too little too late . If we had not on our own looked up connection gate and map of the airport andwould have had to stand in line to ask we would have missed our international connection."
Pros: "was a pain checking extra baggage. No one seemed to know what to do.. Apart from that AA was good."
Cons: "Waited 2 hours for take off."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Two hour plus delay in plane on tarmac then long flight with entertainment not working. Crew could care less."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and I was able to sleep."
Cons: "I didn't like having retro entertainment with no options."
Pros: "A nonstop flight, with a friendly efficient crew, met my expectations. A crew member went above and beyond when I asked for a coffee stirrer with my coke and ice."
Cons: "I've been spoiled by another airline's access to screens on the back of the headrest. I have my own hand held devices to entertain myself instead."
Cons: "Delayed a total of four hous!"
Pros: "Flight was on time, staff was friendly and boarding was organized."
Cons: "I'm a small person (5'-2", 105lbs) and I didn't have room to breathe in that tiny little seat."
Pros: "Everything was fine except..."
Cons: "Kosher meals were so so."
Pros: "We got here safely."
Cons: "AA 767 plane is 40 years old, has ash trays, and uncomfortable seats. It would have been nice to have a newer plane."
Cons: "There were no individual screens on the seat backs, Sono entertainment system . the whole plane had to watch the same movie. Also no wifi or access to other entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful at each stop even though they weren't responsible for the disasters."
Cons: "Initially we thought we were flying with British Airways. We then had to do some digging to realize it was all out of American Airlines. Then we couldn't get proper boarding passes and luggage tags until one of the crew members spent a significant amount of time untangling each leg of our trip so they were in the proper order. We got delayed by 4 hours in Chicago and missed our connection in Manchester. We had another 5 hour wait there. By the time we got to Dublin, our bags didn't also arrive. After almost 24 hours of travel, we arrived but without all of our stuff."
Pros: "JAL is customer oriented and it's always a pleasant experience. Unfortunately, though the return trip is also JAL, the cabin crew isn't."
Pros: "Boarding was good, Good flight , good service , plane was small for the distance with limited space for movement ,"
Pros: "The crew was nice and everything went well when I was on the plane."
Cons: "I booked this as Finnair flight. Finnair is in terminal 5 (international) at ORD. There was nobody at the desk... I was getting nervous. I had to look at my Kayak app for info about my flight ... It was operated by American Airlines out of Terminal 3. I barely made my flight. You should be more explicit on the front end so these mess ups don't happen."
Pros: "The attendants were helpful and Kind"
Cons: "Prices, again."
Cons: "No food or beverages for me. I slept comfortably on my flight"
Cons: "Plane was too old, flight attendants were rude"
Pros: "I don't know how airlines get away with all the stipulations and regualations they have in the buying process there is. Otho g I like about the scam artist they are"
Cons: "The fact they they can just make it a policy and then because the employees have to have a job and enforce it blows my mind. 200 dollar transfer fee plus the difference in the ticket when it's over two weeks in advance. You people are scam artist"
Pros: "You provide me with the best ticket prices and to me that was the the most important part of of the trip thx"
Cons: "The airlines charging for your luggage"
Pros: "Plenty of leg room no entertainment so I dozed."
Cons: "People stuffing oversized bags in overhead."
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "No Food"
Pros: "One I love free sodies and two I love free sodies with a smile. I definitely got both with this flight crew."
Cons: "Not enough sodies and I couldn't smell my own farts."
Pros: "Frankly there isn't much to say here. After 7 flights in 2 weeks there was only 1 flight with great staff that actually cared about the customers and looked like they enjoyed their job. The rest treated guests with indifference at best."
Cons: "Customer service is dreadful, the planes are so old they still have cigarette lighter charges in first (but of course no adapters), no food/snacks of any significance, and they seemingly cancel flights at a whim with basically no staff to help re-book the lines of guests that have been disrupted. I pity those who loose luggage AA baggage services are flooded with lost baggage they just don't care any more. Seriously its embarrassing how little they care about customer service."
Cons: "We were delayed for 4 hours, due to a mechanical issue. We were not given any forms of reimbursement. I would like a 500.00 voucher."
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Cons: "Would be nice to know ahead of time if flight is equipped with an in seat television so as to be prepared to bring headphones."
Pros: "We arrived safe."
Cons: "Departure 1.5 hours late. Missed connection. Travel took 16 hours instead of 6 hours."
Pros: "All great."
Pros: "Everything was timely."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "I was very pleased that the attendant gave me a free drink since I had a military ID. It was very kind of her."
Cons: "The flight was delayed multiple times. We were never informed as to why this was. It was very frustrating since I had a connecting flight into Tucson from Dallas. I got off the plane with twenty minutes to get to my next flight which was not in the same terminal. The plane was also incredibly hot while we waited to take off, I was beginning to become uneasy and nauseous."
Cons: "No airline should be allowed to board passengers when they KNOW there is a departure delay!!!!! This complaint isn't specific to this trip, but something that this airline could improve by not boarding people when there is a known delay."
Pros: "Zero of it"
Cons: "The fact they cancelled this flight for no reason, didn't contact me at all even though they had all of my information and than barely tried to re book me. They wanted me to take 3 connecting the flights the next day. And the next flight I was able to get on 24 hours later, I almost wasn't allowed to check in because they couldn't find my reservation."
Cons: "There was no inflight entertainment screen. Would have liked one on a 4-hour flight."
Cons: "-35 minute delay"

Cons: "I reserved two tickets and out of the four planes with took only one we had seats next to each other so we couldn't carry out some business on the flights."
Pros: "Business class seat"
Cons: "Mpvie choices are terrible. They don’t know what “new releases” mean."
Pros: "When I got sick, staff were friendly, helpful and soothing until the arrival of the ambulance. They made me feel much better during a very stressful situation."
Pros: "Everything else was fine/standard."
Cons: "Not all ground staff are crosstrained on how to accept manual payment for extra luggage and had to wait an extra half hour for the only person who can process a debit transaction. Does not make sense..."
Pros: "I got upgraded to first class!"
Pros: "Air Canada crew is always courteous"
Cons: "I have taken this same flight once a year for the last three years and it is always late to depart from NRT to YVR making the costumes and immigration process a hurried hassle for this of us with connecting flights. YVR crew got me and another couple to our next flight on time, but it has already boarded."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Having to pay for baggage on an international flight and no better snacks available without purchasing them."
Pros: "It was short flight. On time as scheduled so what else to say."
Pros: "Air Canada couldn’t have been better, I missed a flight they waived their fees and got me on the next direct flight home. Wonderful service !!"
Cons: "I had to change my return ticket early because of an emergency and Air Canada charged me $481.00 whenI only paid $371.00 fora round trip. How is that possible?"
Cons: "Cattle call"
Pros: "This flight was not full, so it was a pleasanter experience than expected. Actually, I slept through most of it."
Cons: "flight was delayed, but only by 2 hours, which doesn't even seem that bad. The gate was changed TWICE, which really wasn't awesome, and the 3rd gate did not have enough places to sit down."
Cons: "The entertainment system was down for 45 minutes on the flight from toronto to vancouver, and the air crew didn't seem to be bothered by it until many people complained / asked to move."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "I didn't really like breakfast but I am glad we had it."
Cons: "While the plane was circling in a holding pattern our luggage was left out in the snow for over an hour. My one bag was wet when I got it and my other bag didn't arrive. And because there were no Air Canada workers at the desk in Philly no one could tell me where my bag was. It was a very stressful end to a long series of flights."
Cons: "Having to download entertainment app beforehand isn't made clear"
Cons: "Both Flights cancelled and was put on a later flight."
Cons: "First flight was canceled, they did not get me on a flight till 4 pm the next day! Not to mention the two French Canadians I talked to were extremely rude. Finally the 3rd customer service women tried to get me home sooner but was unable to!! Have flown for years on air Canada without issues but this last trip was such an inconvenience I will not being flying with them agin!! They also did not cover my hotel or the taxi costs associated with me having my flight canceled, not even a discount!!!!!"
Pros: "Flight from STL to YYZ was unremarkable, which isn't a bad thing when it comes to air transportation. Bit of a delay leaving, waiting for de-icing trucks to show up and do their work, but I'm not sure that's Air Canada's fault."
Pros: "My overall flight was smooth, the crew was friendly."
Cons: "All of my Air Canada flights were delayed, it was a real inconvenience."
Pros: "Food need to improve it's no taste and stank of meat"

When we got to the gate our plane was still there but they said it was too late to get on but they delayed the plane 10 minutes to take our luggage off. We got a later flight. Not happy."
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and considerate. Food was satisfactory and timed appropriately. Entertainment device worked and offered adequate variety. The aircraft itself was clean and comfortable. It was not overly air-conditioned as aircraft tend to be."
Cons: "Boarding was slow and confusing: verbal instructions conflicted with posted signs, and it was hard to choose the right lines. Arrival in Canada was a nightmare! Customs and security were confusing, inefficient, and staffed by people who had little patience. There was much yelling and running around., there appeared to be little sympathy or concern for the dozens of passengers who were attempting to make connecting flights, and it was ridiculous to announce that security closed at 9p.m. .when there were planes on the runway awaiting connecting passengers and people with boarding passes who were not allowed to catch their flights."
Cons: "not even peanuts included on a 6h flight is remarkable"
Pros: "Flight from Paris to Montreal was very nicexcited with comfortable seats, entertainment, and pillows"

Pros: "Nothing to like about this airline. Horrible people especially in toronto, really unhelpful, extremely rude."
Cons: "Air line decided they didn't want me to take my connecting flight. Removed my luggage without consulting with me. Offered me a disgusting hotel. Forced me to pay out of pocket for food, taxis, transfers and my own hotel choice. Staff were so rude. No explanation to why they removed my bags. I made it in plenty of time for my connecting flight but airline had just decided. No staff member was interested in answering my questions or helping. They all just wanted to sod off home. they just didn't care."
Cons: "Missed it due to our first flight being delayed- ended up with ANA air. SCORE!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were polite and helpful. The plane was clean. It was a comfortable flight, though the food was okay."
Cons: "Liked all of it."
Cons: "Fixed arm rest - could not raise up"
Cons: "As every other international flight I've been on has included a lot of food/wine/beer, this was a big disappointment for two long flights. In addition there were no in flight screens. I had a laptop but it is inconvenient to have that out while trying to do things in a small space. The chairs were also really uncomfortable, more than usual."
Pros: "Great flight crew, fairly comfortable seats. Made a 10-hour flight pretty bearable."
Cons: "Flight was great. Kayak was a nightmare to work with."
Pros: "Over all I love air canada"

On breakfast they offer me banana bread. ARE YOU REALLY serious???? no eggs or sausage or something. Disgusting!!!! Had to beg flight attendant to give me piece of old bread. Very disgusting air lines!!!!!!"

Pros: "The seat was relatively spacious, especially compared to United. Staff was friendlier too."
Cons: "Too many announcements"
Pros: "Plane arrived pretty much on time. Boarding was uneventful."
Cons: "Plane too low to use jetway at Pearson. Epic walk from US gates to immigration. Insufficient leg room if you're over 5'10", but that's how it is these days."
Pros: "From the views read I cannot say I had the same experience. Crew was helpful & kind. Flight was on time and comfortable."
Cons: "First time flying air canada and flight was delayed 1 hour"
