Top 5 airlines serving London to McAllen Miller Intl
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Good movie selection. Attentive crew."
Cons: "Lufthansa has poor boarding process causing a delay in our flight. Because our next connection flight (ALSO THROUGH LUFTHANSA) was in 40 mins per their booking, we arrived at the gate just prior to take off to find our flight had been given away and we had “missed” that flight. As a result, we were placed on a flight 4 hours later, resulting in a dangerous attempt at reaching our hotel at 11pm. Will never fly Lufthansa again."
Cons: "Over 2 hours late, and this flight has been late 6 of the last 7 days"
Pros: "There wasn’t anything to highlight as good. On this trip except LHR was organized and clean. The boarding was a free for all after the elderly and young had been boarded footstep as they should."
Cons: "The ground staff were rude and officious"
Pros: "Lufthansa is always reliable. Flight was fine. The staff were kind and efficient in their jobs."
Cons: "There is no inflight entertainment on these flight but I brought my own."
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight because my flight was late. I had to get to my destination for a wedding."
Pros: "Plane was super nice and new and crew was great!"
Pros: "The Munich airport presented a startling contrast to heathrow! Both the flight from London and from Munich were very nice. I was so tired that I am sure I missed a lot."
Pros: "The crew were super friendly. There was plenty of space and I slept for a few hours"
Pros: "on time."
Cons: "They made me weigh my carry on, but virtually no one else, despite the fact that my bag was the same size as most and smaller that others! I honestly felt like one of the gate agents were picking on me."
Cons: "a bit late"
Pros: "Staff were kind and courteous."
Cons: "Late departure and uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "There was not enough room for all the people’s cabin size luggage. They allowed people to get on board with big coats once they’re in the plain they take off the coats and place them up. Those coats take the same space as a small suitcase. I asked the fly attendants for assistance and they didn’t even pretend to care about the situation. I had to put my luggage under the seat for the entire flight, which ended up reducing the very reduced legroom. What this airline is trying to do is; to charge passengers twice for cabin size luggage. This has been my worst experiences with airlines. Lufthansa is definitely an airline to avoid."
Pros: "Flight crew made up time to arrive on time despite late arrival. They are pretty amazing - they got a plane hundreds of miles in the same time it took the ground crew to get my bag from the plane to the baggage claim."
Cons: "Frankfurt is just an awful airport. Too many landings and not enough infrastructure. Also tired of planes having to park thousands of yards from the terminal. The time to get the bag is as long as the flight. Each about 55 minutes. There is very little about German efficiency here."
Pros: "The food out of everything"
Cons: "Customer service , the air craft , the blankets"
Pros: "The crew's efficiency and friendliness"
Cons: "Having to fly to Germany to come to San Diego"
Pros: "We only had carryons and they took the. From us before boarding the plane."
Cons: "They should tell people that there is delay and that they will take their carry one"
Cons: "Online check-in did not work. When I checked in at the airport, I received only a middle seat."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Almost everything"
Pros: "Once again, the in-flight crew was excellent. The flight was good, but no entertainment is provided."
Cons: "Another late take off, probably because the incoming connections were late. So it was good that the airline delayed the connecting flights. However, this leg of the trip was so late that I barely made it to third leg of the trip. A huge problem is that each of these international airports require that you go through the security check again. For that reason, connecting legs of trips through these airports should not be scheduled so close together. Heathrow is the worst, with security staff that, at best, don’t care that you have a close connection to make and just ignore your pleas to speed up the process, and at worst, are just plain rude."
Pros: "Only an hour and a half but perfect service and even a nice meal. Because of the delay there were a lot of questions to the crew but they managed to keep travelers calm and happy."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but that had nothing to with the crew and the service."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good legroom."
Cons: "Slight delay."
Pros: "Made up most of the time. Latrobe leaving due to queue."
Cons: "That I did not know in advance there was a snack. Would have odered vegan as it was had nothing."
Cons: "At the gates they said that nobody could bring more than one piece of carry-on items Dash completely catching Everyone by surprise. They took a backpack from me, and it has now been lost."
Cons: "No bridge in Frankfurt - long taxi and then 15 minute bus ride to the terminal; had to go through security again; mad dash to catch connecting flight (which also had the 15 minute drive to the plane - again, no gate in the terminal! Shambles!"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight"
Cons: "No body helped me. My first flight got delayed and missed my connecting flight. People were rude and showed that they didn’t care. I had to wait 4 hours for the next flight. I received little compensation"
Pros: "The counter staff in Heathrow was great"
Pros: "Everything was perfect ... pilots are so good and professional..!!)"
Cons: "The flight"
Pros: "On time and good service"
Pros: "Was great,on time,no issues,they send me the flight connection gate on my email.*****"
Pros: "Good attitude"
Cons: "The flight took off 2 hours late they must have known it was going to be that late, yet they lied saying that it was on time, forcing you to come to the airport early, then when you get to the airport they did the - oh its going to be 20 minutes late, no 40, no 1.5 hours late, heck it will be 2 hours late etc. Micro-tight seat pitch - I could barely sit in the seats."
Pros: "After the delay I was given a spot on the direct flight so I didn't have to deal with the complications of the connecting flight. The staff was nice and helpful."
Pros: "Fast and efficient boarding"
Pros: "Easy check-in and helpful staff. I would absolutely fly with Lufthansa again"
Pros: "It was good the checking desk person was polite and done her best to put get me on to British Airways flight to get to my destination on the same day."
Cons: "But we waited tilll 12.30pm still flight took off at 14.00 and arrive in Dubai at 23.50pm instead of 22.30pm person went home who suppose to pick me up. I got to the place I was staying at 01.39am which was very uncomfortable. I will never fly again with Lufthansa Airline it use to like British Airways but definitely they have lost the customer touch."
Cons: "The plane lands a considerable distance from the airport, you walk across the tarmac in the rain to a bus, and then the bus ride is almost 15 minutes. I expect Lufthansa to have a better berth at Frankfurt."
Cons: "Flight was 30 min delayed . When we landed, the jetway was someone mispositioned and it took even longer to get us off the plane - nearly 1 hour late. Missed my dinner appointment as a result and generally bad start to my trip to Munich . Very disappointed ."
Pros: "Nie odbyl size powodu opuznienia samolotu z Chicago do Londynu"
Pros: "Timing and the cost was good. Crew were friendly. Did. Or feel a racist service like in Germany itself."
Cons: "No entertainment. Too much hand luggage even though we had the allowed size bags but it seemed that people use more than the allowed limit."
Pros: "Was informed that boarding would be delayed but began within minutes. Arriva time was spot on"
Cons: "Most cramped seat I've ever sat in. Couldn't even sit because my knees hit the seat in front, before my but was in the chair."
Pros: "Even on such a short flight I got a sandwich. It was a salmon sandwich which I never had on any other flights. They usually serve cheese or ham or chicken in the Middle East. It was nice to have something different and nutritious."
Pros: "Priority boarding with small kids"
Cons: "In London I was required to ask fro this priority boarding with kids if not asked I would be queuing with small kids for 15 minutes.. (whilst In Frankfurt we have been invited to be boarded as first ones without asking for it.)"
Pros: "Heathrow had a lot to offer between flights. Our gate was in the middle of everything."
Cons: "We were late boarding, which left very little time to connect with my next flight in Frankfurt."
Cons: "20 min delay. Old plane"
Cons: "I bought an extra piece of laugagge and I had problems on both check in processes because I wasn't shown on the system."
Pros: "The crew and service are very good and the cabin crews' smile are so nice. Love it.The Heathrow airport security check( fast track) procedures are high efficient, well organized and professional. I would like to take British Airways in future again. Thank you"
Cons: "The connection flight btween London Heathrow and Bologna boarding time was about 40 minutes delayed."
Cons: "Food and entertainment selection was not the best."
Pros: "Back facing window seat, flat bed, great service, good food, arrival ahead of time"
Pros: "Impressed by service of staff"
Pros: "Entertainment: American Airlines had a great selection of movies."
Cons: "American did not check my luggage to my final destination, even though they should have. Spoke with an American Airline luggage rep at Heathrow; he was rude and condescending - "You go get your luggage from Terminal 3 and bring it to Terminal 5. If you don't, your luggage is not going to with you!" Thankfully a more reasonable British Airways agent at T3 took care of this."
Pros: "Nothing. At. All."
Cons: "This was a nightmare. BA had no flights available to Edinburgh. Booked on 3 separate flights at 2 different airports. Last one was canceled outright. After being awake for 28 hours and traveling for 15, we finally were given a hotel room for the night in London. Still trying to get to Edinburgh."
Cons: "Very very late. So much for British punctuality."
Cons: "British Airways didn't have my leg of this flight (London to Paris) as part of original checkin from Austin to London. As a result I stood in Customer relations line for 90 minutes, missed my flight, and was separated from other member in my travel party who didn't experience same problem and we were both on same booking confirmation"
Pros: "Almost nothing but I was comfortable"
Cons: "There was one crew member that spoiled The lot. When I had trouble with my bag fitting she wa no help. She in kinder words told me to figure it out. When I asked if there was a way to check it at the jet bridge she replied that I should have done it out there. To which I replied that they should have told me there was limited room. Needless to say I had to figure it out without any help from any crew. Which was crazy to me because on other flights I had more than one person taking my bag for me or trying it other places. Later the same woman was loudly accused of skipping a row of a dad trying to wrangle his children. When he confronted her she addresses him sharply and made him wait to get food though he had two young children with him. I'm sure skipping a row is easy to do especially if there is a lot Of activity but it didn't stop there another crew member began to bash the man while they were continuing to pass out food in front of other passengers and she did not stop him. I understand wanting your fellow crew members to know you are with them but it is completely unprofessional to do it in front of other passengers and needs to be saved for "closed" quarters. Worst and most unprofessional portion of my trip."
Pros: "It was short"
Pros: "new Airbus with awesome entertainment"
Pros: "On a two hour flight, they provide a small sandwich and scrumptious carmel muffin. Overall, it was a pretty good flight."
Cons: "Took them a while to start boarding."
Cons: "Lost my luggage and failed to deliver my luggage on time. I had to go out of my way to buy everything again."
Cons: "When boarding I was encouraged to check my hand luggage and was told that there was no room on the plane. After boarding and seeing several empty overhead bins I felt that I had just been lied to. And to add injury to insult when I arrived in Rome, my checkled bag did not. I had to wait at the airport for the next London flight arrival to get my bag. I used to like BA but will be looking for other airline carriers to travel on in the future."
Cons: "There was a short boarding agent that was not friendly or helpful while checking people in. We watched her bully a customer for walking up before being called up. Then we got to go and she looked at my bag and said it won't fit. She told a us to put it I the box, it fit. She was not happy. The case has been a carry on for five flights prior to this flight."
Pros: "Crew was really helpful and nice. Quite flight, very comfortable. I would really recommend this airline! First time taking it and was a little worried cause of some reviews but it was totally worth it. I'm very picky with this type of things and I do not regret taking it!"
Pros: "Cleanness and convenience."
Cons: "Seat selection only 24 hours ahead."
Cons: "This flight was even tighter and my space even smaller. We were on the first row after business class. Not only was I extremely tight with no way to get out of my seat, but we had a curtain in our faces. I found that to be extremely uncomfortable and quite useless. This flight had no TV and no other means of entertainment, having the seat in front of us so tight that I could not even move my legs. Fortunately this flight was only a couple hours long."
Pros: "They opened the back door to exit as well as the front of the plane allowing people to get off quicker than waiting for one exit."
Cons: "Didn't receive food on flight. Wish there was entertainment. When boarding there were too many people crammed on trying to go in at once. If it was more spread out it would have been better."
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "Same seats and legroom as in coach. Differed from coach only in that a tray occupied the middle seat rather than a person."
Cons: "Poor air hostess service"
Pros: "crew better than iad-lhr,food better"
Cons: "delays at lhr"
Pros: "Helpful, friendly and kind!!"
Cons: "Both when waiting in line to board and on the plane, the staff was acting like they were headmasters checking on passengers who had too much carryon. I understand that this is a problem for the airline but they should train their people to act in a friendly manner. There are different ways to say the same thing. Big turn-off at the beginning of the flight, which was an hour late due to weather conditions."
Pros: "The crew was excellent. We were delayed on take off, but the pilot was very courteous in letting us know that there would be a delay and why and constantly kept us updated. Upon landing, The skywalk was not functioning, and again he was very apologetic and kept us completely informed as they fix the situation.The plane was really old, and made some noises on take off that sounded scary. The pilot drove a smooth flight and we all arrived safely."
Cons: "Heathrow airport is extremely crowded and not a very fun place to wait especially for people who have sensitivity to crowds and noise. There are few places to keep your phone charged, the only stores there are extremely high priced like Tiffany's and Prada. The plane was really old, and made some noises on take off that sounded scary."
Cons: "The boarding process was made very hard with lacknof communication and a boarding agent who kept leaving the line."
Cons: "They lost my luggage!!!"

Cons: "The flight was delayed due to scary weather."
Pros: "The flight was on time."

Pros: "The crew on this BA flight were nice and pleasant even in the back back section,B"

Pros: "This was a simple, smooth flight."
Pros: "Everything was fine."
Cons: "They gave us the smallest sandwich in the history of the world! Older, outdated plane."
Cons: "No entertainment or USB or power for charging"
Pros: "The customer service people were very helpful after we missed our flight but it would have been better if they were proactive in helping passengers who had limited time to get to their transfer gates."
Cons: "Reactive rather than proactive staff ... They should have informed us of a fast track lane if there were any but too many were standing around not helping. But the system was terrible ... Maybe it was just that particular day."
Cons: "Boarding started late, did not learn about the gate until 15 min prior to scheduled departure time"
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."
Cons: "Flight was canceled."
Pros: "Lunch salad! Great idea. Mini forks too cute to stand."
Cons: "The gate not being announced until 20 minutes before boarding. However, this probably wasn't BAs fault."
Pros: "The biscuits were great."
Cons: "There was no announcement for boarding. The gate (and terminal) changed last minute, and I had to run from my connecting flight to make it, then had to wait while the gate information finally displayed, 20 min before takeoff. Very unpleasant experience and highly disorganized, without so much as an apology."
Pros: "See overall comments"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Pros: "Easy flight. No problems encountered."
Pros: "- the breakfast croissants were delicious"
Cons: "I gave entertainment a 0 because there was no entertainment :)"

Cons: "Not enough space for carry-on"
Pros: "Seat width"
Cons: "More leg room, Southwest actually has better leg room"
Cons: "Boarding process including changing terminals, going thru security is awful. This time I had ample of time to go Thru that long waiting process but last time I almost missed the flight. Heard from others the same issue. London Heathrow airport needs to come up with better solution before losing the"
Pros: "Plenty of drink passes."
Cons: "The staff was rude. Over heard gossiping about other travelers. At end of flight overhead announcement that our section of airplane using wrong bathrooms. It was rudely stated. Should have directed this instruction earlier in the flight. Very rude"
Pros: "The crew seemed nice, they allowed me to board early."
Cons: "There was no entertainment because the system was not working in our area."
Cons: "The DVD/ movies was having an issue.., couldn’t play.. I had to ask to have it reset a few times."

Pros: "Organised, clean"
Cons: "Food... pizza... bad idea to serve during a flight. Moreover, the smell and the taste was bad"
Cons: "I had already landed late from Budapest, and therefore missed my connecting flight to Raleigh, so I was put on a different flight to Raleigh via Philadelphia. Only, my new flight from London was delayed by one hour, causing me to land late in Philadelphia, and miss my new connecting flight to Raleigh. I was put on a different flight, but there was no seat for me, so I ended up being stuck at the airport overnight. All these in one day!"
Pros: "Friendly staff, good entertainment option, good food."
Cons: "I reserved a special solo seat for extra $80 and got charged for it but did not get that seat. I was seated in a window side seat with another passenger."
Pros: "Crew was nice we."
Cons: "We were separated from our children even after we upgraded seats because they bumped us on the other flight."
Pros: "The smooth boarding process and the enterainment."
Cons: "The limited food option. In general, there's not much vegetables. The food is either a pasta dish (quite heavy) or a meat dish with potatoes or rice."
Pros: "Almost everything :) Great new aircraft, really nice crew and well organized boarding."
Cons: "It is a longer flight that I would have liked, but I knew that."
Pros: "we upgraded to economy plus seats and it made all the difference - just having an extra 4-5 inches made the 11 hour flight so much more tolerable than the trip to Madrid."
Pros: "The flight to New York was not full and I was surprised when the representative automatically upgrades me to an even-more seat, which I found great because at 6-feet tall I had a tough time on the way to England being in the right spaces at the rear of the airplane."
Pros: "Good Hospitality"
Cons: "insuffecient supply of juices etc"
Pros: "A great flight."
Cons: "Nothing I can think of."
Pros: "I love everything on my trip service, time, flight"
Pros: "Delicious food. Very smooth flight had a great time traveling with this airline"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and tight."
Pros: "I like that they let a 70-yo wobbly old man hobble the length of plane to get some hot tea because there's no climate control i the air craft, and let the poor old man hobble back by himself juggling the hot tea in his hand and trying his best not to fall. Plus I truly admire one of the air stewardess's ability to chew gum - she was chewing vigorously throughout the 7-hour long flight. Amazing."
Cons: "BA and AA is the best partners. Because both their air crew are clueless about service standards. A 7-hour flight from London to JFK, again no meal choices, no offer of drinks in between meal times - is this a standard Western service level?"
Pros: "the crew went out of their way to make you feel as comfortable as possible very nice"
Pros: "The flight was a one way to PDX and felt fast and not exhausting coming from LHR. First time flying direct. Great food and snacks the staff took care of us. Bathrooms were cleaned over the trip which was great!"
Cons: "N/A - nothing..."
Pros: "My flight had a really tight connection at London Heathrow. Then my flight from Vienna arrived 10 minutes late which made it even worse. A very nice BA agent met me as I deplaned at London Heathrow and ran with me thru Terminal 3. Helped me clear security with a priority card and ran to my gate with 2 minutes to spare. The women was really nice and if it was not for her I am sure I would not have made my connection. I don't know if there is anyway to track her down and thank her but I would like to do so. The flight attendants were OK but not excessively helpful."
Cons: "Having to reclear security. I understand the necessity though. The touch screens for the inflight entertainment did not work well. Food was Mediocre at best."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Disaster"
Pros: "They were absolutely fantastic on checking on me, food, service, flight in general. Would recommend to anyone!!!"
Pros: "It was excellent!"
Cons: "Flight leaving Miami delayed 1.5 hrs Flight leaving London delayed 3hrs"
Pros: "Options for entertainment. Seats felt larger. Plenty of storage space for carry-on luggage."
Pros: "AmerAir mostly on time. Good entertainment device. Food pretty decent."
Cons: "Cramped seats; no on-flight entertainment. Boarding was unorganized. Overhead bins packed to overflowing."
Pros: "We made it one piece and the pilot clearly made an effort to avoid turbulence by changing altitude constantly in search of smooth air."
Cons: "Crew brought food whether you wanted it or not. They loaded up my husband's tray table with food for 3, even though they were all asleep. I was sitting across the way, so, perhaps they didn't hear me say no thanks. The entertainment system was awful. You had to go through all the steps again and again every time you tried to simply check flight information. Annoying. When we arrived DFW customs, one of our bags was missing. Still in London. No surprise. LHR is awful. We would not see that bag again for nearly 4 days. They gave me some thing about a belt problem between T5 and T3 in LHR. We went from T3 to T3. No excuse. Probably fell off somewhere. Chocolates were a bit melted and chip bags burst. Whenever it was, it sat in heat."
Cons: "No way to charge a cell phone during the flight. No chargers at the airport waiting area for the flight. There was a metal box under the seat in front of me so i could not out my bag there, could not even fit my feet there."
Pros: "Very smooth, through customs, getting luggage, etc."
Cons: "seats were rather cramped. Food wasn't very good"
Pros: "Food was decent, lots of snacks and drinks provided. Entertained was decent."
Cons: "Flight was 4 people overbooked. Boarding time was unclear because thr airport never changed the boarding time on screens. We also had to have our passports checked 3 times 2 through regular customs and one just to get into the small waiting lounge. Families and friends' seats were scattered throughout the plane. Boarding was chaotic because children were crying because of separation. Didn't realize this fought was operated by American Airlines so I couldn't call ahead of time, but even then... There were no switching because there was zero space."
Pros: "Comfortable sitting Good assistance food is not so good"
Cons: "Food is not suitable for indians"
Pros: "Efficient crew, efficient boarding"
Cons: "Crew needs to observe whether there is obvious bad manners being manifested, and intervene. Man next to me had lap top and tablet open all 11 hours of the flight, elbowed me constantly as he typed, and took up much more room than was in the seat. You can't expect passengers to have to confront/call out such bad behavior; the crew (which certainly observed my seatmate's incredibly rude/greedy behavior and my discomfort) must be proactive."
Pros: "Crew was nice and helpful. Flight was smokth until some turbulance when landing, which was fine."
Cons: "The screen wouldn't allow me to watch films, but it did let me watch TV shows (which I wasn't interested in). Made the long flight a bit longer and more boring. I wish that the seat was more comfortable with additional legroom."
Pros: "Our flight was smooth other than a few bumps along the way. Pillows and blankets were provided. The plane seemed clean. Most of the staff seemed friendly and helpful except for one stewardess who seemed to be in a very bad mood. The food was fair for airline food and the free wine or beer with the meal was appreciated. The snacks we received before we landed were very tasty!"
Cons: "The seats made you feel cramped and the gap between the window seat and the outside of the plane made any light from a window shade opened in front of you blinding when the rest of the plane was pretty much dark with windows closed. TV touch screens on the back of the seats in front of you were slow responding and hard to see when a window shade was open near you."
Pros: "All the AA staff were great, very helpful as I was traveling alone with my 10 month old son. One of the flight attendants helped me carry our things on, because it's tough to carry my son in his safety seat and our bags through the narrow aisles without beating up everyone in the aisle seats as we go through! She also checked on us multiple times to see if there was anything else she could help us with."
Cons: "The AA check-in at Heathrow is terrible. It took us over an hour to get through the line, then another 20 minutes to get our seats changed because the seats we had been assigned weren't suitable for an infant safety seat! Also, the plane is older than the one I first took on the RDU to london route back in 2001. The seating is cramped and there is no seat back entertainment."
Cons: "Could not reserve business class outboard seats and had to sit next to a stranger"
Cons: "It didn't happened. Flight from Seattle was late and I flew 4 hrs later with LOT."
Cons: "I booked an aisle seat, confirmed when checking in, but ended up in a middle."
Pros: "Movies were wonderful. Wheelchair services were outstanding!"
Cons: "I am very short, but there wasn't enough space for me to have any leg rom at all. I felt really badly for anyone else who was taller than me. That was my only complaint."
Pros: "Boarding process and customer service"
Cons: "Food could have been better and seating comfort"
Pros: "Exept food everything was awesome"
Pros: "The crew were very good. In any case, I shall fly with AC again."
Cons: "Lining up to check in with bags. The customers were "sorted" but I finished up on a very long line with only one person serving; after 30 minutes, that person just wandered off, presumably for a break. We, on the queue waited for 15 minutes for a new person to return. When it was my turn to check in the process took no more tan 30 seconds whilst for others it had taken 10 minutes and more. Dreadful experience. The choice of entertaining films was limited on my flight; normally AC has a wide choice."
Pros: "I've always had adequate flights with AC. No one goes over and beyond, but everything is as you would expect. A smooth flight."
Pros: "Quick boarding, flight on time, nice crew."
Cons: "The only thing they serve is water. Still or sparkling. And chocolate bar. Anything else is paid. It's not low fare airline and this should not be happening."
Pros: "Got home safe"
Cons: "Meal -"
Pros: "It's been a long time since I flew Air Canada . Great flight, blanket and pillow provided - seats, movies and and a lot of snacks. Worth the money for a long flight :)"
Pros: "The 787 aircraft. What a beautiful plane"
Cons: "Calgary airport. NEVER AGAIN!"
Cons: "Staff was rude. And I was seated next to an alchoholic"
Cons: "Some crew members attitude... Really bad and unhelpful. Also whose idea was it to out the video controllers right where you rest your arm???"
Pros: "A few of the crew members were very pleasant and professional. The choice of movies was good, though I had to sit through five minutes of advertisements before they started."
Cons: "I was flying from London to the U.S. with a connection in Toronto. One of the crew members, who was somewhat rude, told me that I would need to fill out Canadian and American customs forms and go through both in Canada, and to not "stop for coffee" as the plane was 20 minutes behind schedule. I had a question about the Canadian form and asked another crew member who told me (correctly) that the first crew member was wrong; I did not need to fill out the Canadian form or visit Canadian customs for my one hour layover. When checking in at the kiosk, my seat was shown as an aisle seat so I didn't try to change it, but my boarding pass printed a middle seat which is very uncomfortable for a tall person."
Pros: "The crew was kind, helpful and expedient in their work"
Pros: "The pale was nicer than my flight out. The food was very good vegetarian fare."
Cons: "The seats are just too narrow! My shoulders were practically grinding into the person's next to me."
Pros: "Beautiful Planes , the rouge line is cheap on their international flights but only first class gets free entertainment . I was first class but my friend was economy and luckily had her own iPad or would not have been able to use anything , that being said the movies for her were still not free . The food was good as well and their regular planes from Europe are very large and beautiful"
Cons: "Worst experiences I've had with customer service . The flight crew were fine but all ground service appeared overwhelmed and unable to assist customers . I had a flight to Athens that was in final boarding my friend still has not arrived the first person I asked said she didn't have time to look if she was still on the flight , the second told me it was private info and finally a 3rd let me know she had been rerouted and would arrive 8 hours after me in Athens and that her bag though made my flight . She did last minute make it via running to our plane but in that time they had given her seat away, she had to prove that she paid did and deserved a flight . The way home from Athens all of my aid Canada flights were delayed and late . I had a 3.5 hour layover in Seattle to switch carriers to make it home , my flight out of Vancouver was 2.5 hours delayed that they continually said was only another 10 minutes , versus being upfront that it was severely delayed . Long story worst experience I've had ."
Pros: "The meals provided from London to Montreal were delicious! Best food I've had on a plane before."
Cons: "there really isn't much room in between seats. You can't even lean down in front of you to pick up something with out having your neighbors move."
Pros: "Entertainment selections and accommodations for not being able to make my connecting flight do to delays were good."
Cons: "I found the seats a bit tight."
Pros: "Great, new aircraft, entertainment system much improved"
Cons: "Business class boarding was slow, behind the people pretending to need advance boarding (but who recover on the plane and spring to their feet (vs waiting for assistance) at the destination and charge off unassisted. AC is pinching pennies (e.g., to save 2 cents/breakfast they omit the tomato relish that used to keep the omelette from seeming dry)."
Pros: "Check in"
Cons: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed Missed the connecting flight food was terrible on plane baggage was damaged reached London in two days instead of one so much restlessness missed important family gathering at the destination"
Pros: "The fact that I could charge my i phone..."
Cons: "The lax attitude to service and customer satisfaction there was a problem with the entertainment system, took over an hour to get attention... But no positive resolution..."
Cons: "When boarding the plane, they called the zones too quickly. Then there was an Air Canada representative giving bad directions to the passengers as to where to get in line. Then she got annoyed and was disrespectful to the passengers as they were trying to get in line. She needed to give better directions or change the way they called the zones. Air Canada knew the flight to Montreal was delayed when we left London. They changed our reservation to Toronto to a flight that we still couldn't connect with because of timing. It would have been easier if they were more realistic with the timing of the flight and booked us on a later flight to Toronto."
Pros: "The staff were friendly and helpful, and the flight was uneventful (which is good). Some of the staff went way over and above their function to make up for the chaos."
Cons: "My mother had booked a dairy-free meal and wheelchair assistance. The meal was booked on the flight to London, but the booking didn't carry through to the return. The wheelchair assistance was provided, but there were only three agents booked to manage 12 wheelchair passengers. They tried their hardest, but we still ended up missing our connecting flight. If the crew and agents hadn't been wonderful, it could have been a stressful trip!"
Pros: "Lots of leg room. Friendly and helpful staff. Smooth flight and comfortable seats."
Cons: "We didn't like all the walking to get to and from the plane in Terminal 2, Heathrow. Anywhere else in the world would transport people by bus if it was going to be a twenty minute walk to the departure gate."
Cons: "Everything from customer service to flight."
Pros: "the snacks were ok, and the in-flight entertainment was nice"
Cons: "I had a drink spilled on me with no apology, the staff was super duper rude, the flight did not take off on time and was late getting to the connecting airport. all around it was a total mess"
Pros: "Superb! Great flight, great food, great service! Will definitely fly Air Canada again!"
Cons: "Crew could have been friendlier, food was lacking, flight left an hour late."
Pros: "I LOVE the individual entertainment screens - those are great! The crew was very helpful and nice."
Cons: "Again, my seat assignment was changed to a middle seat when I checked in (I wonder if this is because I'm traveling alone?), even though I specifically purchased a window seat 3 months ago."
Cons: "The fact that because I was late for my flight, my reservation was cancelled. I was not given the opportunity to change my flight at all, I just lost out on the return portion of my travel. I would have been willing to pay a fee to change my return, but not given the opportunity. Had I booked directly with the airline, they would have had no problem making a change. Buyer beware!!! If you don't book directly with an airline, you may suffer the same fate as me! This was an almost $1,300 dollar learning experience. Do not use third party online booking agents! You do not have the same protections as dealing with the airlines directly."
Cons: "The person next to us was too heavy to fit in her seat, so she flowed over into my husbands, making the whole trip uncomfortable. In addition she had a smell. Not sure what can be done about it, but it made a long trip really uncomfortable. Service and food was also much better on the South African airlines portion of the trip."
Pros: "I really liked how updated the plane was. The wine selection was very good. The entertainment had plenty of things to do - movies and TV shows were updated. I enjoyed the ice cream, that was a very nice treat!"
Cons: "I thought the food was not as good as the flight over to the UK - the mashed potatoes didn't look or taste like it had any real components at all and the bread was a little stale."
Pros: "Entertainment was good."
Cons: "My partner had injured his knee and it was quite swollen. When we phoned and also went to an AC agent at the airport, we were told there was nothing they could really do as far as leg room; Heathrow reps were kind enough to offer a wheelchair when we arrived. The frustrating part was when we were on the flight, there were multiple rows which only had 1 person seated. There did not seem to be any empathy, understanding or patience for our situation and it did not feel great to be treated with annoyance and disdain."
Cons: "Offering "pasta" as a food choice isn't good. You might as well offer "potatoes" or "rice." Tell us what is in the pasta, what kind of sauce it is etc. Not enough details!"
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of leg room and the increased humidity level in the economy section of the 787."
Cons: "We sat on the runway for an hour, 25 minutes at the gate and 35 minutes in line for a slot to take off. They ran out of the chicken entree before they got to us, and the snack (a "cajun wrap") left a terrible after taste that took and handful of arctic mints over several hours to get rid of."
Pros: "Space and meals"
Pros: "No hassle about size and dimensions of carry on luggage - yeah! On time departures and even early arrivals! Very polite and great customer service! Enjoyed the bi lingual (english/french) aspect of announcements! good movie/entertainment choices!"
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants, many whom seemed to enjoy their jobs and wanted to make everything a pleasant experience. Was used to Delta Airlines for over 20 years and they became the nightmare airline for Cincinnati. Best of luck to Air Canada in the future."
Cons: "Food was no where near as good as the service, needs work in this area."
Pros: "Flight from Heathrow to Toronto was superb."
Cons: "Flight from Toronto was clumsily supported. Not enough time was allotted to get through us customs . Signage was poorly placed or non existent. Virtually everyone I spoke with was confused about 3 step process. No explanation was offered. Lines were uncontrolled. Finally flight attendant wouldn't even talk to me about moving from a broken seat to one of the 2 vacant seats available on this small aircraft. When I attempted to ask a second time she waved a reserved for flight crew sign (apparently she needed both seats to sit down during the flight and eat her lunch and read) I will fly Air Canada again because MOST of the personnel were a class act... Just not particular flight attendant on that particular flight). I must note that on that same leg of flight going the outgoing direction the male flight attendant was excellent"
Pros: "Movie & t.v. Selection Most staff were friendly and did a good job"
Cons: "The amount of interruptions for snacks, food, seat belts, etc. Limited space for sitting and moving around Crying children"
Cons: "There were not that many movies to choose from. I expected several hundred. Only a few dozen."
Pros: "Individual employees at the gate seemed like good people who got stuck in a bad situation."
Cons: "The check-in process was needlessly difficult. We had to check in less than 12 hours before our flight because the website would not allow access. We could not choose our own seats until very late in the process. Our family was split up (we encountered 8 other families also split up, including single parents with young children). When most of us fixed this problem ourselves on the plane, we got lectured by flight attendants about the "wisdom" of checking in early. Boarding was very delayed because of overbooking and confusion; some people did not make it aboard even though they had been guaranteed a seat. Crew was apathetic, at best. The food was deplorable."
Pros: "Gate assignment was only 44 minutes before take off and with the size of LHR got there after boarding had started. Confusion as right beside it was an AC direct flight to Toronto also boarding so lines were mixing. A hot meal provided which was good except for a stale roll and awful "salad". A hot wrap provided later in flight that was awful, should have used pizza pockets. Good crew and good flight. Always carry active noise cancelling ear buds or headphones."
Pros: "courteous crew; partially empty flight so lots of space to move and lay out Food and entertainment good Air Canada is always a great airline to fly"
Pros: "Lucky as this was not a full flight so I had the seat next to me empty and lots of legroom with a bulkhead seat. The attendants were very nice and the onboard entertainment had a good selection."
Cons: "The food is just not good. Air canada needs to get a new provider."
Pros: "The plane appeared to be new. The TV screen was large and easy to navigate and the selection of movies very good. The crew was friendly and accomodating"
Cons: "The seats were very narrow and close together. It felt very crowded and I was glad I am only 5'1" -- I pity people who are of normal height. Also I was disappointed that a smaller plane was substituted for the original one that I booked, which necessitated a seat change [although I was still given the requested aisle seat]. The plane was totally full which made for a claustrophic flight. The food offered was mediocre, but I have come to expect that in economy."
Pros: "their ticket agents were exceptionally helpful in fixing Emirate airs problems"
Pros: "The crew and team did so wonderfully given a pretty bad situation. We had a passenger who had to be removed from the plane ... after that we tried leaving again, but due to a potential security risk went back to the gate a second time for a security sweep of the plane. This unfortunately caused us to be on the tarmac for two hours, but the crew did a wonderful job of keeping us informed, offering water, calming nerves, etc. Beautiful comfortable airplane as well."
Cons: "I have dietary restrictions and didn't feel there were many options. I wasn't aware that I could make special requests, so I will take advantage of that in the future. I did ask one flight attendant if the salad option was gluten free, and she said "I'm not sure," but also didn't offer to look into it further, meaning I didn't have food for my transatlantic flight. Luckily I took a few small snacks, but that was a little bit of a bummer all the same."
Pros: "hospitable, comfortable, not a full plane so room to move"
Cons: "can't think of a thing except would have liked a 2nd cup of tea"
Pros: "The choice of movies, they were very current with a large selection"
Cons: "I thought the crew could have been a little more personable"
Pros: "New seats are excellent"
Pros: "Enough space between seats"
Cons: "Very little food"
Cons: "Flight was late due to mechanical issues. Couldn’t exit the plane in Chicago bc of JetWay malfunction."
Pros: "Flight was calm and arrived early"
Cons: "Odd seat rows are cramped. Food was below average. Dry salmon and chicken. Flight attendants were barely visible. My seat did not work properly"
Pros: "Loved the food. Great for flash frozen and then microwaved. Service was excellent, much better than the going flight."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and professional"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable"
Pros: "The boarding process went smoothly."
Cons: "The entertainment options were not that broad. Music for instance was only podcast?!"
Cons: "I understand sometimes there are problems with gates once a plane lands, but an hour on the tarmac waiting to get into a gate is ridiculous. Pay up to have gates available for your aircraft. We have choices when flying. If you disrespect the customer's time, we take our business elsewhere. Also, having the customer do everything from tagging our baggage and automated check-in at the airport should reflect in the price we pay for a flight. Instead, you make us do all the work and keep prices the same."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled, instead of a direct flight back, we had to go to Munich and then fly to LA"
Pros: "The actual flight was great, employees on the plane were very friendly"
Cons: "We missed flight by 5 minutes and employees were not helpful at all. We had to stay the night in Houston due to this fact and caught a flight out the next morning. The employees were all ready to get off work and left w/o helping us."
Pros: "Everything went by smoothly, no problems"
Cons: "Our plane was United, so I don't think this reflects on Lufthansa, but rather United. The plane entertainment was extremely outdated and there was not enough room in the overhead containers for everyone's carry-ons. This problem made boarding a very long and aggrevating process."
Pros: "Everything was good."
Pros: "The London based crew: attentive, kind, relaxed, sympathetic and very professional in a relaxed fashion."
Cons: "The food is terrible, the rest adequate. Since all airlines cahoot to have same prices the choice for the passenger is quality and United does not offer a great deal on that subject."
Pros: "The international flights were fine."
Pros: "There was plenty of room because the flight was less than half full. There was a very friendly and helpful female flight attendant with an Asian ethnic background."
Cons: "It was impossible to check in online because I have a U.S. Green Card. Something should be done to fix this. It shouldn't be too difficult. There was a gray-haired male flight attendant who was extremely negative and unfriendly. Perhaps (I hope) he was really a security guard. But if he is going to serve people, he has to understand the concept of service."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice,"
Cons: "Seats are much too cramped. Even for economy seat, it is difficult to move."
Pros: "Entertainment via the phone was nice First meal was okay with pasta and bread Facilities were clean Power source below seat was good"
Cons: "Entertainment via plane monitors was bad Sound for entertainment via plane monitors kept breaking up Second meal with a turkey sando and chips was bland Seats weren't comfortable No internet provided"
Pros: "Cabin crew were great"
Cons: "Seating in cabin is horribly tight"
Pros: "Customer service was very good and the attendants went out of their way to make the passengers as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "Plane was extremely old and did not have tv's in the consoles. Very painful to take a 12 hour flight with minimal entertainment. The wifi was not working so could not even use the personal device entertainment. Definitely felt like the airline did not value the customers or our comfort."
Pros: "Thumbs-up to the flight attendant who filled my metal water bottle to the top."
Cons: "I needed to work on this flight but never got online. Disturbingly, I pressed the flight attendant button twice to ask why unitedwifi.com was "unable to handle this request" for so long, but no one came to my seat. Much later, when the food cart came by, the attendant at the front told the other one to reset my light. The second one then asked if I had a question -- but didn't know what the wifi problem was. Hours later I did manage to get onto unitedwifi.com and learned that it's impossible to connect to using Chrome. Why did the crew not know this?! Then I was confronted with the $20 price tag to get on the internet. I started to pay, but the transaction took so long to complete that I realized it would be pointless to connect if that was the speed I could expect."
Cons: "The dinner, Thai Chicken Curry, contained nuts. Nobody communicated that to the passengers. I ate the Curry, not knowing there were nuts in the dish - I am allergic to nuts. Spent much of the flight feeling sick, being physically sick, feeling ill and not being able to think about anything else. After reading the Curry container cover, it did say the dish contained nuts. But the flight staff, I think, should have communicated this. Also who puts a dish with nuts in it on a plane, with all the allergies that passengers could have? I was not going to die from the experience, but some people are more allergic than I am. I think this choice of menu was very inappropriate."
Pros: "The stewards and stewardesses served us well."
Cons: "The plane was an older one, and the overhead storage spaces were small."
Pros: "The check in process was very fast and efficient"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. We even arrived a half hour early."
Cons: "I booked this one as a Lufthansa flight, so I was disappointed to find out that it was actually just United. I've never encountered an airline bait and switch like that before. Also there was a group of children on the flight who were screaming (not crying – very literally screaming) at the top of their lungs for a long stretch of the flight."
Cons: "The UA in flight entertainment system is absurd. It doesn't consistently work and when it does it forces passengers to use small devices, etc."
Pros: "Pilots kept us well informed Flight arrived early Staff were very nice"
Cons: "The 757-200 is a small older plane for such a premium route of London to NY. Conditions felt cramped. The 767 going the other way was much more pleasant with the extra aisle for stretching your legs. The main meals were not nice, pasta options were not appetizing at all."
Pros: "United airlines handled the flit gut and their international service is excellent."
Pros: "The crew were so friendly and professional. They looked like they were genuinely enjoying their job. The crew were London based on both of my journeys and both crews were excellent. Thank you United Airlines for making my flight an enjoyable experience."
Cons: "I don't being changed to United flights"
Pros: "The plane flew."
Cons: "We must have had the oldest plane in the fleet. Small screen entertainment with cycling channel movies, not individual choice ... And my screen did not even work. Uncomfortable seating. Poor meal choice. Service was average, some of the staff seemed to be doing the best they could with what they were given. Some didn't seem to try at all. Why is United so far behind any other sta Star"
Pros: "Good price. Good service."
Cons: "Ground staff was racist. Standards vary depending the color."
Cons: "Kayak suckssssssssss"
Pros: "The stewardesses wee attentive. Liked my other passengers around me."
Cons: "The food was mediocre. The seat did not feel any larger for $189 extra! The internet never stated on for a longer period of time"
Pros: "enough leg room (I'm 5'10") vegetarian dish was delicious many choices of new movies alcoholic beverages were good"
Cons: "Flight got cancelled, we did not receive an email or text. We found out when we reached the Heathrow airport. We got booked on another flight, with 6 hour layover. When the flight that got cancelled was a direct flight. Then our luggage was not put on the connecting flight, we got our luggage 24 hours later."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Waited half an hour to take off"
Pros: "The flight attendants were attentive and polite."
Pros: "Good movies, empty seats so i could stretch out."
Cons: "The crew was nice! But a little awkward. The food was kind of bad."
Pros: "Boarding was swift, seat was fine, service was pleasant, flight was uneventful."
Cons: "Entertainment system was a tiny, pixelated screen playing a few movies on loop. Felt like it was 20 years old. Food was fine, but the pre-landing snack was a very greasy, ham and cheese on pretzel roll sandwhich."
Cons: "Crew was rude and did not reply to my call button when I rang it 3 times. Boarding was confusing. Instructions to get your passport checked before your zone boarded was not clear. Boarding agents were pleasant, but onboard crew was rude."
Pros: "The crew both ways were professional and hard working."
Cons: "The flight was a code share with United. Seats were ridiculously cramped in economy. Perhaps this is the new normal--I haven't flown internationally in a while. Food was just ok. I was disappointed that I was not flying Air New Zealand since that was part of the reason I booked this flight."
Pros: "Stewards were great."
Cons: "Sat on runway for 40 minutes before taking off and 45 minutes before we docked and get off the plane...."
Cons: "Wifi was atrocious and I spent $16.99 on it. No one was manning the jet bridge so after we took off 2 hours late we had another delay of 15 minutes on the arrival. Our late takeoff was due to some plane issue, we missed our window and got held up by traffic control. Weather was perfect. All UAL fault."
Pros: "The food actually was good, entertainment option were good."
Cons: "I encountered some of the worst staff ever on this flight. I was skipped over and completely ignored during more than once. I even told the guy I wanted water with ice when he asked me and then he starting socializing with others and skipped me. When I brought it to his attention he got all pissy with me. The other crew man was older and made me very uncomfortable. He was yelling at people constantly and made it very clear that he hates his job. This was the coldest flight I've even been on. Literally everyone was wrapped in their blankets and it still wasn't enough. The staff was told several times but refused to do anything. The guy in front of me had his seat row 39 middle left fully reclined back for the whole flight. Not once did anyone tell him to put it up during takeoff and meal times. He kept rocking the seat and spilled my drink in my lap."
Pros: "The staff at check-in at Terminal 2 at Heathrow airport were lovely... friendly, helpful. My suitcase was overweight so I had to remove 4lbs from my suitcase and redistribute it into my hand luggage. The staff were so polite and patient and had a very supportive attitude."
Cons: "1) The staff at the gate were mechanical and had an air of snootiness...non-genuine behaviour. 2) Cabin staff were not attentive and also very abrupt and short when approached for anything, despite the flight being at 30% capacity. 3) My arm was bandaged from my fingertips to my shoulder but when I asked staff to assist me with my hand luggage they refused 4) Food quantitiy was EXTREMELY low and the quality was appalling....there was less food given than in a MacDonalds Happy Meal."
Cons: "Flew on 747 not as comfortable and enjoyable as the dreamliners."
Pros: "There really wasn't anything good about this flight!"
Cons: "We were delayed about 4 hours leaving, first delayed, then cancelled, then reinstated with a stop in Chicago so switch crew. The plane's AC didn't work on the ground so it was hot while we sat there. Arrived in SFO about 8-9 hours late, missed all connecting flights home and then they wanted us to spend the night. It was less than a 2 hour drive home so I ended up renting a car and doing that!"
