The flight was ok, the baggage claim took almost 2 hours. :(

Annoying that every short flight is delayed over 40 minutes consistently . Why am i taking a 1 hour flight when it becomes two hours plus airport and uber time? Maybe we should all just drive??

my row of TVs didn't work

Cons: "First time flying with JET BLUE Loved It"
Pros: "I liked the male flight attendants on my flight. They were nice and cheery and was always willing to help. The inflight entertainment and WiFi was great. The snacks were also good."
Cons: "I forgot to the flight attendant’s name but she was quite rude. I traveled with an infant who required warming up of her milk in a bottle and I would ask for hot water and she failed to bring it over. I requested hot water twice. Initially when the plane was taking off- she stated she cannot bring anything while the flight was taking off but even after take off and in cruising altitudes she did not come over until we rang the call bell and another flight attendant came over. Second time mid flight we happen to ask the same flight attendant for hot water as she passed by— she nodded her head but again never returned with the hot water. Again I hit the call button and another attendant came over and gave me water. I felt that she did not like attending to the flight guests and always seemed to give an attitude. I understand traveling with a child may be hard for others, but imagine the parents who have to care for a starving baby. The flight was also a bit too warm."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We were stranded at the airport for hours"
Pros: "Basic flight"
Cons: "Major delays. Poor updates on app regarding timeliness."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and responsive"
Cons: "Would’ve been nice if they offer headphones. Maybe they did and I just didn’t notice."
Pros: "Facilities and amenities (WiFi, unlimited snacks, comfortable seat)"
Cons: "Gate agents consistently telling paxs to SIT DOWN if their boarding group hasn’t been called yet."
Pros: "Crew is always fantastic, JetBlue crew members never let me down!"
Pros: "Everything except ability to book seat"
Cons: "Would have appreciated being able to book my seats earlier"
Pros: "Great crew. Mint experience is fantastic, actually great airline food. Better than any other domestic first class. Free internet!"
Pros: "In flight entertainment was great"
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "My video screen did not work so I couldn't watch anything. Then when we landed we had to wait an hour on the tarmac before we could get to a gate."
Pros: "Not too full of a flight"
Cons: "It was delayed 3 hours"
Pros: "Gabe me a free wine"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Extra snacks and drinks were a big plus on a long flight."
Cons: "There were not enough people that checked their carryons, which lead to a long delay in boarding. Jetblue people should have demanded more checked bags to avoid a long delay in boarding. The flight was painfully long due to snow, which is understandable."
Cons: "The lines for checking bags at FLL were really long and there were only 2 people workingat the desk. Also, This is my 1st time flying on jet blue so I was unfamiliar with the fact that I had to print my own luggage tags. At sfo they did it at the desk at FLL you had to do-it-yourself. It would hav"
Pros: "Best food and entertainment availability"
Cons: "When we arrived from hawaii to SFO airport we had to exit in order to get our tickets for our next flight (SFO to FLL) and we had to go through security again for this reason. No one around to help, we even called from one of the airport telephones but no one answered."
Pros: "I like the comfort of the flight and the kindness of the crew"
Cons: "I'm disappointed that my carry-on has been charged like a suitcase, that has stolen time to reach my booked house in the city"
Pros: "It was really nice having a USB charger under every seat."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by 2 hours and I was only notified when I had arrived at the airport."
Pros: "The flight was smooth, efficient and friendly crew. For a 5hr flight, the snacks were very sparse."
Cons: "A full meal"
Cons: "Entertainment controller was broken"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable enough once it got going after a 5-hour delay."
Cons: "Flight from FLL to SFO was delayed by 5 hours due to a technical issue with the plane. Upon arrival I received an apology email from JetBlue and a flight voucher. However, I will also be filing a claim with the airfare app to seek reimbursement for the enourmous inconvenience this delay caused."
Pros: "I liked that they offered quality and complimentary snacks and how they didn't make a big deal if we wanted like 2 tob4 servings of water as i get extremely dehydrated. Staff was friendly and their boarding times and door closing times were clearly printed on the b pass which i appreciated. If only their frequent flier numbers were partnered with more programs. Seats were clean and were connected so you cpukd watch tv and recharge your phone. Good variety of movies!"
Cons: "I think they charged for blankets but at least it wasnt freezing like AA"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Boarding is a free for all. The extra room seats I paid more for had no storage nearby. The WiFi stopped working an hour into the flight. You have to pay for headsets to listen to the entertainment (or bring an old set with you. Your newer headphones won’t work nor do wireless). If your flight is an hour and a half late, would be nice to offer at least one free drink."
Pros: "The delays were understandable as it was a snow storm. The crew was great."
Cons: "My entertainment system was broken, and on a coast to coast flight in the middle of the night where sleeping is impossible, that really sucked."
Pros: "I love JetBlue's hot towels at the end of long flights. I also love that the have free (Good) snacks. They do have considerably more leg room and bigger seats, and the free WiFi is fabulous!"
Cons: "The cleanliness of the plane in general could've been MUCH cleaner, but I understand that with quick turnaround times and getting in and out on time this is difficult. The air temperature was inconsistent sometimes too cold, sometimes too warm which made staying comfortable difficult. I wish they had more fresh options on the later leaving flights. Also, two of the crew members were SUPER chatty all throughout our evening flight and I could hear them through the earplugs."
Cons: "BOARDING WENT SMOOTHLY, FLIGHT ATTENDANTS WERE GOOD, FREE ENTERTAINMENT WAS GREAT, SEATS WERE COMFORTABLE."
Pros: "The boarding was easy, the legroom was great for economy, the service was straightforward and the price was fair."
Pros: "Smooth flight everything moved pretty timely"
Cons: "Check in was a little hectic"
Pros: "I was about to miss the last bus home due to weather delay. the crew made an announcement asking passengers to let me get off first. Everyone did. They were amazing in every way."
Cons: "1. when there are delays...and the gates get super congested, you should a person directing people. 2. the majority of people at the gate, on board, making announcements – put their energy into speed and musicality in their voice. It should be about clarity. I know, they say the same thing 10 times an hour...but I want to get what they are saying...particularly if it's about safety."
Cons: "Delayed and departure time changed but wasn’t reflected until I was at the gate. They also changed my seat from the front to very back of the plane"
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was awesome. They have free WiFi, Direct TV, XM radio and more."
Cons: "The flight was so uncomfortable. It was hot in the cabin, and the seats seem to be even more uncomfortable than other airlines. Our backs and butts hurt, and nobody was able to get any rest."
Pros: "Flight was delayed over an hour, I missed my apointment rendering my trip useless and now a waste of money. This is not the firat time, I will not be using Jetblue in my future trips."
Pros: "Amazing service from start to finish, movies for really long flights, comfortable seats and always a pleasurable experience :)"
Cons: "Leg room is tight but I can live with that"
Pros: "Food was really good, but the cabin crew were up to JetBlue's normal outstanding service"
Cons: "The range of movies is still pretty poor (if you're a frequent JetBlue traveller)"
Pros: "fee movies"
Cons: "couldn't find the movie that I started watching on my previous flight"
Pros: "Timeliness, crew courtesy."
Cons: "Chatty girl next to me on cell phone pretending to be a big shot. Our lite didn't work. Seemed like old, old plane rattling"
Pros: "2.5 hours late boarding because there was no piliot or co pilot. They lied about reason blaming on grounding by san fran but then a supervisor said they were waiting for a pilot because they were taking out"
Cons: "The crew"
Cons: "Late departure; headphone jack on my armrest was faulty so I had to hold the plug in the whole time if I wanted to hear sound of movies; once we were at the gate in SFO, it took a good 10 minutes for them to open the door to let us off."
Pros: "Again the on board crew was very helpful and were willing to vouch that the plane had mechanical issues not weather issues when the gate agent in LGB tried to tell me that I would not get reimbursement for ground transportation to get from San Jose to San Francisco. So the good is that JetBlue did reimburse me for the LYFT I had to take to San Francisco."
Cons: "Well I arrived in San Jose, not San Francisco. So I arrived 3.5 hours late. Also, I did not appreciate when the gate agent told me that I could not be reimbursed for ground transportation because my flight was weather delayed not mechanically delayed. I understand that he/she may not have known what was the issue with my original flight out of Salt Lake. But, telling me that I would have to pay for ground transportation at 1 am to get the last 30+ miles to my destination made me really worried. If he/she didn't know and didn't have the time or resources to figure it out, I would have preferred if she redirected me to someone else or a phone number or email."
Pros: "Crew were great, boarding process was good too. Great snacks and overall a good experience."
Cons: "The plan temperature was like 85°f for the whole journey meaning you pass our, sweat, or get a headache. Also the seats were really uncomfortable."
Cons: "The Jet Blue counter person was not helpful at all providing direction to us from International Terminal to Domestic terminal C. No help at all to passengers who are not familiar with Logan Airport. Major major disappointment!"
Pros: "Entertainment and timeliness of the departure and arrival."
Pros: "everything on flight was excellent!"
Cons: "at time of flight: the price!"
Pros: "This was my second time ever flying JetBlue (the last time I did was maybe 5-7 years ago). I forgot what a pleasure it is to fly JetBlue! The service and amenities are similar to Virgin, not the mention, the snacks are awesome! I will definitely keep this in mind for future travel. Thanks, JetBlue!"
Cons: "Seats are too cramp, but all airlines seem to be like this now. Food options were very limited on our flights which were a letdown. Only snacks available for 5-6 hour flights, no meals like advertised in the pamphlets."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Too long flight time I noticed the plane speed was 440 MPH most of the time. This may be the first flight I sat which was flying this slow"
Cons: "They make us expend 5 hour at the JFK airport at New York and to this point I don't understand why."
Cons: "Staff was very friendly, courteous and helpful."
Pros: "Food was really hot and good customer service"
Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "Snacks"
Pros: "I liked that it was a straight flight from SFO -ZRH. On board entertainment was great."
Cons: "Seating is way to tight. Service from crew is nothing at all like it used to with Swiss. Nearly a smile from crew ( both legs of flight) mostly just hand motion when serving food. Food was a big disappointment too. It feels like all the good service is reserved only for business and first class !"
Pros: "The crew was very nice. Seats were pretty comfy."
Cons: "Food was ok. We could have been accommodated a little more. We lost a lot of money bc of the delay."
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Pros: "Superb crew; surprisingly delicious food (better than some first class meals I’ve had in the past)."
Cons: "The seat was remarkably uncomfortable. I fly business or first class when traveling overseas (prefer business class) specifically to be able to rest - this was the most uncomfortable I’ve experienced in the last few years."
Pros: "Swiss is always excellent"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "More comfortable seats"
Pros: "Amazing crew/ food/seats very comfortable! Very relaxing ride !"
Cons: "It was perfect !"
Pros: "Crew was lovely! Friendly and happy. Well organized and responsive."
Cons: "Overseas flight seats were tight going and coming, and being that long a flight you feel you are sitting on top of your neighbors. Air quality descends on a long full flight, it became claustrophobic by the end. There was only an option for vegetarian-vegan, but I am not vegan. I won't do that again. My daughter's bag didn't make to SFO, even though we were early to check in."
Pros: "On board is pretty good except that the seats are pretty narrow compare to our previous experiences. As a reference, I am 5‘3“ and 110 lbs."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed and the seats were narrrow."
Cons: "I wanted to get some work done on my flight but I couldn't even open my laptop screen more than a few inches."
Pros: "The. Crew were amazing"
Cons: "Lpst my luggage"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful & friendly"
Cons: "The a/c or fans were on too high"
Pros: "good availability of food"
Cons: "seats did not have much space at all. Legs constantly squished and there was no room to move them the whole trip. not much movie selection available."
Pros: "The food and beverage service in Coach was great as usual ... The new 777 ER 300 was really a nice improvement over the aging Airbus planes previously flown Entertainment systems in coach were top notch with great entertainment choices to view ..."
Cons: "3 4 3 seating results in very narrow isles ... during the longer flights on the 777 the isle seated passengers lean into the isles making going to and from the restrooms in ( coach) a bit of an obstacle course"
Pros: "There wasn't much that stood out as likable. The food was pretty good."
Cons: "The plane was too hot. I asked multiple times throughout the flight for the temperature to be reduced, and it was not. I was wearing light jeans and a short sleeve shirt, and I was sweating all flight. Each time I asked throughout the duration of the flight, I was told it take a while for the temperature to decline. It's one thing to be uncomfortably warm on a flight; it's another thing when the flight crew lies to you. Further, I was not the only one to request that the temperature be reduced. This made an 11 hour flight particularly miserable."
Pros: "Food service is adequate."
Cons: "Standard complaint, but economy seats are way to squeezed in!"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable considering they were middle seats. The food was quite good and the entertainment selection was also good."
Cons: "Boarding was later than initially said and I did not know why"
Pros: "Although sitting in a plane in coach could never be considered a wonderful experience, Swiss Air did the most to make it so. in particular the crew was very responsive and cheerful. The leg room wasn't bad and they were very liberal with their wine and beer offering."
Pros: "crew very nice and helpful. great service. food was very good and good portions. very nice entertainment system."
Cons: "unable to choose seat without paying extra."
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "Terrible seats :-("
Pros: "The staff was helpful and professional and kind. The equipment was new and clean. The flight was on-time and uneventful. I would fly this airline again any day of the week."
Cons: "The entertainment screen was difficult to see when the person in front of me reclined because the screen was not perpendicular to my line of vision. I survived based on the other qualities of the flight."
Pros: "The aisle seat I purchased wasn't miserable like so many economy seats are. But I did have to pay for it!"
Cons: "I had such a miserable experience getting to Florence on Swiss Air that I sent a letter of complaint WHILE ON VACATION!! Really. It was a nightmare... not the way you want to start a vacation. I had difficulty booking my daughter's seat online for the return, but didn't have access to phone service while abroad. In my complaint letter to Swiss Air I requested they place us together. I never got a response and upon check in, they had my son and me in our purchased seats and my daughter at the back of the plane. I asked them if they could do anything about it (I was even willing to give up my seats to move to the back...) yet no one seemed concerned or interested in helping to make this work. They also had no knowledge of my complaint or appeared concerned about my prior experience. I'm so over Swiss Air. My experience with the employees on the phone prior to my first departure, the lack of response to my email, and a disinterested and inattentive staff on my return, have all convinced me to choose a different airline next time."
Pros: "The service is the best!!! I enjoyed everything!!"
Pros: "It takes two minutes to get to a live operator when you call. Simply amazing."
Cons: "The flight from Nairobi to Zurich starts in Nairobi, flies an hour south to Dar es Salaam, you then sit on the tarmac for an hour, then you fly north for an hour until you get back to the starting point. I would think they would save money if they flew an empty plane down to Dar es Salaam, picked up those passengers and then flew back to Nairobi. No way should an 8.5 hour flight take over 11.5 hours. Plus my screen didn't work for one of the flights, nearly 12 hours without entertainment was BS. No real variety in their meals either. The first leg had a main meal of beef and potatoes as the meat option, same option for the second leg."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. So patient and accommodating, even when passengers were a bit impatient. Cabin was clean, and it was good to have blankets and pillow on a long flight."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic. Food was okay but not substantial. Comfort was terrible in my seat - for some reason I had a seat with a metal box underneath so I could not stretch my legs. And the fellow next to me, in the middle, was over 6 feet and was VERY uncomfortable, even though he had legroom. There were good options for entertainment, but it was unreliable and had to be restarted once. Also, the screen was terrible quality and I could not see no matter how I adjust the screen angle or the light."
Pros: "my wife needed a wheelchair, so we were whisked between terminals. but if we had had to negotiate that long distance by ourselves we would probably have missed the connection because there was only an hour layover and the distance between gates was great"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant."
Cons: "The Swissair website did not have my information available. Stood next to Passport Control for an hour (!) for a glitch they couldn't resolve before boarding. Flight was delayed 90 minutes. Worse quality beef on a flight ever, and that's hard to do. In my 1.5 million miles flown, these were the least comfortable, cramped seats I have ever experienced. I am only 5'7", 150lbs, but for the first time ever could not reach my belongings in the under-the-seat space in front of me. Seriously, it was that cramped."
Pros: "See above"
Pros: "Courtesy of crew."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable flight I've ever experienced. The seats were too small. It was torture for a 12 hour flight. Need more space and padding in the seats."
Pros: "Great crew service, attention to detail, very responsive and efficient"
Cons: "1 hour departure delay from Zurich and did a poor job explaining the cause ?? Movie options available for passengers were limited and not very interesting to watch?"
Pros: "The crew was terrific."
Cons: "Economy seating very cramped. Cramped seat conditions, inability of video screen to articulate sufficiently to allow seeing the picture when the seat ahead was reclined."
Pros: "Very good service on board"
Cons: "Crammed into middle seats both way. Many/Long lines in ZRH/SFO"
Pros: "The food"
Pros: "Boarding was very quick and efficient. Seating arrangements were nice pretty average overall."
Cons: "The crew was terrible. Young and in experience was on thing. But worse was they did the bare minimum and then hid out in the back for the rest of the flight. They served a weird cheese sandwich mid flight and would roll their eyes if you asked for water. The food selection and taste was bland or way too salty."
Pros: "Ft"
Cons: "The lack of food choices. Even if you must buy them tgere should be choices"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Good food and entertainment. Comfortable seats."
Pros: "Excellent Amount & Quality of Asian Vegetarian Food"
Cons: "Due to a glitch in the webstei, I was unable to check in online, and therefore did not get a window seat for an 11 hour flight - very frutrating and uncomfortable!"
Pros: "The flight crew were great very friendly & service oriented as far as getting your food & water"
Cons: "My partner & I were given separate seats. We tired to reserve our seats online according to instructions & time but the online registration wasn't working properly. We had to wait til we were at the airport to do that. When checking in we were told we had to wait til onboard? Then once on board told no. So we were not able to sit together & weren't even in the same area of the plane. We also had an old plane & seats very uncomfortable. The movie screen was barely visible so basically u could just listen."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Automated check in machines were horrible and almost caused me to miss my flight"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Small jet for transatlantic didn't allow for being able to walk, stretch and move about much during such a long flight, unlike larger airbus planes or larger Boeing planes. Why do airlines hire chefs then serve lousy food!? First meal was so so while wake up meal was really bad. Was so disappointed in Swiss Air so will not fly with them again. Great service doesn't make up for the noted disappointments. Spending a $2-3 more on food would have helped, but placing us in a long flight in such a small airbus plane just won't do!"
Pros: "As above."
Cons: "As above."
Cons: "seats not too comfortable, if seated right next to the toilet I should pay a lower fare!"
Pros: "We were fed constantly, which is nice because on a longer flight you never feel hungry. The staff was great."
Cons: "More space would be nice but I guess you can't ask for too much on flights these days."
Pros: "Wonderful, friendly staff. Can't say that enough. Food was pretty good, and I really appreciate the small gestures throughout. Love going direct from SFO to Zurich."
Cons: "All airlines are doing this—we're seated closer and closer together, but the seats are the same. They recline just as much, and the screens pivot as little. And when you have screens that darken at an angle, when the person in front of you leans back, not only is their head in your lap, but you can't see your screen at all. I hate that it's on passengers to decide that it's rude to lean back, when it's the function of the chair. Besides, barely anyone considers it rude. So I was uncomfortable and cramped (and yes, I asked the kid in front of me if she would please move her chair up just a little bit as a favor, but she said she leaned back because the guy in front of her leaned back). Nice kid. I'm not a big guy. Finally home with a horrible neck cramp and a sore tailbone."
Pros: "Food and drinks"
Cons: "The flight is rough. The ascend and descend pattern too abrupt that causes nausea. I wish the pilot need to be a passenger once in awhile to feel how others doing their job so he himself learned to adjust his ways."
Pros: "Seating and layout was very good. True lie flat seats in business class are a "must have" these days and the Airbus airplane interior was a very good one."

Trip was good

Cons: "Considering that we’re in the middle of a pandemic no LH ground staff at Heathrow Airport was leading by example wearing protective equipment such as mask or gloves. Further, I found it inexplicably that almost every seat was taken on this flight. If LH knows that the flight is booked close to capacity I would have expected they do their part and due diligence by swapping to a bigger aircraft to help protect people and their customers, it’s not that they wouldn’t have other aircrafts grounded and ready to go... A reduced beverage service is all you can do, really? LH - very disappointing once again"
Pros: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Flight delayed- missed my connection"
Cons: "5 hour delay"
Pros: "Despite the short flight we were still given food and as always I love airline food. Free alcohol is always a bonus as well! Nice crew and timely take offs and landings. Could bring two hand luggage (backpack and suitcase) which I like even though I didn't have to pay extra!"
Cons: "No negatives."
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: "Very explanatory clear and responsive. There was a short delay they kept us informed clearly and responsibly. Excellent flight and superb performance. Very polite and helpful."
Cons: "Flight from Heathrow to Frankfurt delayed, when we arrived we had no chance of making our connecting flight to Split yet no one told us. No one at the gate which didn’t say final call (or on any of the boards) or anyone calling us over the tannoy at any point. Super rude “flight manager” A. Turini burst out laughing when we told him our situation and when I asked why he said “Well would it make you happier if I cry instead?” So unprofessional."
Pros: "The ground staff in Heathrow was helpful. They happily swapped me onto an earlier flight to Munich after I spotted delays out of Munich, allowing me ample time to connect in Munich airport"
Cons: "Lufthansa's narrowbodies have one of the most uncomfortable seats in the sky. These slimline seats are built with a central beam running vertically along the midline of the seat, making it very uncomfortable with your spine."
Pros: "Overall once on the flight the service and comfort were very good. Attendants were very nice and helpful. Always had a smile and made the flight enjoyable. We specifically picked this Airline for its service and reliablity"
Cons: "The checkin and "Automated" Baggage Check were a disaster. It took us a full 2 hours to check our bags and get to thru security and our gate. We were practically running to get to the end. The layout of the airport is very tough to get from point A to point B. Walking a long distance with multiple security checks. On top of that, the plane was almost an hour late boarding and then taking off. It was a mass of people with no way to cue for an orderly boarding process. No instructions or info given to allow us to go get something to eat or drink prior to boarding."
Pros: "Crew and service was amazing"
Cons: "No entertainment food Horrible"
Pros: "I like everything about Lufthansa in terms of quality and service"
Cons: "Punctuality. I fly lufthansa twice a week and I have yet to fly on time. There are always a delay."
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."
Cons: "Cancelled flight and transferring me on turkish airlines again the flight was delayed over three hours.,obviously we have missed our connection flight to Beirut and now waiting in front the hotel desk because the first flight to Beirut is 12:25 pm , I have lost 2 days from my holiday,I'm very tired and upset, I will never use kayak ever again and I will tell all my friends and family to avoid it."
Cons: "The flight was delayed . When we arrived in Frankfurt, there was a quie of 200m . After waiting 10 minutes, they asked us to go to other passport control . We had to walk onother 10 minutes to get there ."
Cons: "Not entertainment at all"
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth, take off delayed by just over an hour but the Crew were exceptional with providing updates and bringing around refreshments whilst we waited."
Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable but outside that not much I can fault the airline for."
Cons: "First time took Lufthansa airlines and it was my one of the worst experience. Hospitality is respected when customer is helped when they are in trouble not when they is happily boarded. I have to travel from Milan to San Francisco and I missed flight of my one leg ( milan to frankfurt) of journeyand I went for help and non of the Lufthansa staff at Milan airport helped me. Although my connecting flight was after 12hr they just gave me some random number which to call. I have never experience this in my 8yr of international travel."
Cons: "I didn’t like it because when I asked for a big water bottle, they refused to gove it to me while I am sick and suffer dry throat. The space is rather small. If you are 5ft 5 and above person, I honestly would suggest you buy extra legroom for comfortable purposes. Also, there is like 1 restroom on the whole plane and if you sot at the end, you are screw. Lets not forget that they delayed our flights like 4 hours and only gave us 1 voucher for snack. I don’t expect the experience will be fancy but this is a total disappointment!"
Cons: "It took ages to go through the security check, although I have mentioned that I have a flight connection that is due to leave nobody gave a s..t, so I missed my flight. Now I’m waiting at the airport"
Cons: "Cancelled then delayed then had to stay in Frankfurt and was a day late"
Pros: "The environment was very nice. Relaxed and roomy"
Pros: "The crew were very helpful and friendly"
Cons: "The flight was delayed"
Cons: "Very very long walk plus train to baggage reclaim at Munich"
Cons: "Poor food on first leg. Sat by a man who was allowed to have 7 cans of beer. On second leg of journey I was willing to pay for food. The best choice for anyone trying to eat a healthy diet was pot noodles. Air Canada get 2 stars. Return journey on United gets 4stars."
Cons: "My flight schedule changed after I bought the ticket, which resulted in paying for the hotel for the extra night and using one more PTO day."
Pros: "It’s nice that Lufthansa still gives food onboard"
Cons: "My Lufthansa flight left with 1hour delay"
Pros: "Smooth process. Regular updates."
Cons: "Late departure."
Pros: "Fast-track security, Lufthansa lounge in Heathrow T2 was fabulous, with incredibly attentive staff, flight stewards were extremely polite and also attentive. Great in flight snack and drinks. A real pleasure."
Cons: "The long walk at Frankfurt - but you can't blame the airline for the place the plane docks at."
Pros: "Friendly helpful staff."
Cons: "Delays."
Cons: "Would have been great if the airlines "flying" had actually been Lufthansa! My electronic ticket said Lufthansa, check in at Lufthansa, but when I got there and tried to check-in...NOT Lufthansa! It was United. I deliberately went out of my way to NOT book with United when placing my reservation. Personal reasons. Won't book this way ever again."
Pros: "I arrived at the airport early and the check in staff offered an earlier flight so I wouldn't miss my connection. Crew was courteous and the sandwich on board was quite good"
Cons: "Slim seats very uncomfortable and legroom too little"
Pros: "The food and drinks was very good."
Cons: "The flight was late."
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."
Pros: "The food was pretty good. Normally I can't eat airplane food but it was actually good."
Cons: "The seat didn't go back at all"
Pros: "Free refreshments. Funny cabin crew!"
Cons: "There was very confusing and contradictory information on what you can take with you on top of your cabin luggage. e.g. Can you or can you not take a small shoulder bag with you."
Pros: "crew at the gate really excellent"
Cons: "usual plane handling at Frankfurt - bus to terminal, 60 mins is not enough to wait for bus 15 mins drive 10 then go through security and passport control then go from B to A leaving no time to catch a plane Lufthansa scheduling need to experience what they do to passengers"
Pros: "the gate crew didn't care if there was chaos. no interaction with waiting passengers beyond those that queued up with direct questions. i'd liken the experience to herding cattle. customer service skills haven't been taught to these folks yet. if i were basing my lufthansa experience on this alone, i'd go out of my way to fly another airline next time. on the other hand, the people staffing the flight were extremely kind, professional, pleasant, personable. a much improved experience. so much so that i mentioned it to a few people once i got home. this crew has received more training on how to provide excellent service than the gate folks in frankfurt."
Cons: "gate crew's attitude. it feels as though they are disdainful of the traveller. customer service matters. manage the boarding process. be nice about it."
Pros: "Flights were cancelled that day due to a storm, but Lufthansa were able to fly an empty aircraft from Rome to fly us from London to Frankfurt. Despite the circumstances, Lufthansa were able to still offer catering. Thank you for your cimmitment."
Cons: "Lufthansa in general could invest a little more in the food they serve. Lufthansa's domestic and inter European flights are never a culinary highlight. :-("
Pros: "The very gracious crew kept coming by with drinks and snacks, as well as lunch and dinner (in coach).The entertainment system is top notch, with a few dozen movies, lots of TV shows and more, with screens for each seat. The only complaint is that there's not much space between seats, so that when the person in front of you leans back, things can get tight. On the plus side, the bathrooms are downstairs (down a short staircase) and there's plenty of waiting room, so you don't get the usual congestion. Overall, a wonderful experience for an intercontinental flight."
Pros: "there was ice cream for dessert at night"
Cons: "- Delay > 2 hours and no info at gate at the time of planned boarding - unfriendly ground staff and chaotic check in - old 747, "entertainment 1970s standard - crew looked unkempt (like just out of bed), unfriendly to downright rude, my 85 year old mum was ignored repeatedly and ended up not getting enough fluids as a result - 1/8 crew members managed a smile on occasion - rushed meal "service", all they wanted was to disappear to sleep - crammed spaces - while it was announced "we have three different meal choices, you will have at least two choices" - ummm, no, it was pasta. Period. To be fair the pasta turned out ok. The morning dry ham and cheese bun was not, especially without any drink."
Pros: "Chairs were uncomfortable, mainly due to the front passenger was always in reclined mode, and the passenger behind me wouldn't let me recline... He would literally push my chair up, but that's probably because his chair can not recline!"
Cons: "We needed to place special request on vegetarian meal, couldn't do it at booking or at checkin, was told to let crew know, they said it's too late. They brought us an "unclaimed" vegetarian meal, but it wasn't, it was Asian halal meal with lamb! After I let crew member know wmy husband was served meat instead, she denied it and said "its not possible" as the wrapper says "vegetarian". I informed her it actually said "Asian halal", she the proceeded to say, well, "i am sorry if it's wrong, but I gave you vegetarian". That said crew member collected my husband's plates while I was in the bathroom and came back later with a "vegan" plate that they now have available."
Pros: "Initially things were smooth. Boarding was on time."
Cons: "But then they deboarded the plane and everything went south fast. They didn't tell us what was happening or where to go or what to do. Instead we were directed to different service centers. We were told conflicting things. Sometimes they told us to exit the airport through passport control, but without any information on what to do next. They reopened the terminal but then redirected us to a service center. That center was overloaded and we ended up waiting in line for service/information for the entire day. Once I was near the service center they dissipated the line. They told us there was another service center in a different part of the airport and that this one we have waited for was closing. We went there and it was also closed instead they had beds without blankets or pillows limit the halls. Alia we were in line for hours before they offered any water or food. Food was really late. Information was the problem here. We were not told what we should do except to check with the service center. Eventually a few of us tried to get through passport control and check the service center out front. This worked much better. I was able to get a hotel and a standby ticket. That flight went much better but getting that far was a mess."
Cons: "This long haul flight was on an Airbus plane with five restrooms in the basement. There was not enough space to accommodate people waiting in the basement so people had to stand on stairs or by the galley. Flight attendants kept on telling people not to do so but there was simply not enough space."
Pros: "I used to fly lufthansa for my europe travel for work about 15 years ago a lot and thought in recent years it may not have been as good but these flights made me appreciate Lufthansa anew. Crew extremely helpful and polite, always followed up to any requests. Instead of barking at us like United or American crew, they went out of their way to help my daughter get a makeshift icepack for some very painful bumps she got during our vacation. Crew also kept the bathrooms clean from time to time, which was a welcome relief for such a long flight. Desk staff/service desk also was helpful in directing us during the 5 hr layover to things at the airport itself that we could do. They also helped reprint the boarding pass and write down the baggage tags when security made me lose those by separating my wallet and boarding passes into mutliple bins."
Cons: "Phone service. When I tried to book my seats and meals, the lady kept getting things wrong, and ended up not getting me the seats I had specifically ended up asking for. So, when I arrived at the airport and printed my boarding cards, those were seats I did NOT want and all the service desks insisted that's what I asked for. No low carb meal option was surprising. Meal service sometimes felt like too close to each other else too far apart from snacks - didn't feel like we had enough time to digest and get some sleep, while at other times we were seeking out snacks.Overall good quality of food however."
Pros: "The crew and in flight experience were excellent."
Cons: "Terminal procedures, particularly a tarmac delay and understaffed customs and security personnel, jeopardized my London Heathrow connection in spite of the 80 minute layover. Itineraries with less than a two-hour connection should be discontinued as a fraudulent misrepresentation of the passenger's likely success. I will never fly through Heathrow again."
Pros: "The price for a direct flight was reasonable"
Cons: "Wifi wasn't working and movie selection poor. No individual screens especially for a 10 hr flight. Staff were not that friendly either. Old plane and small seats. I would rather pay more for a more comfortable flight."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "In seat entertainment, better food."
Pros: "A delay on our first leg (from Marseille to Munich) meant we missed our flight connection to SFO. Ok, these things happen. Lufthansa customer service in Munich was excellent--courteous and informative. We did not have to negotiate for lodging and other amenities while we waited for the next day's flight. Lufthansa provided for us with grace, including hotel, dinner, breakfast and the shuttle to and from the airport. The accommodations were excellent and we adjusted to our new departure time in comfort."
Pros: "The whole flight was very comfortable"
Cons: "all the food relied on bell pepper for flavor. Bell pepper is highly overrated"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "You are selling tickets for flights that are not available. You are taking money from people and cheating them. You should check to make sure the flights are still going"
Pros: "Very professional, engaged and polite"
Cons: "Water"
Cons: "The information at boarding time was hard to understand, even coffee was a charge, they didn’t have our stroller at the gate when we got off then when we got to baggage claim it was still hard to find."
Cons: "Nothing, everything was exceptional"
Pros: "Flight attendants were great!"
Cons: "Roomier seats, include a beverage (soda, juice, and at least water), child free section"
Pros: "It was a short flight but the flight attendants made the most of my trip. They were very accommodating"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Liked the logistics from the European side for connecting flights, the airplane, crew, and entertainment."
Pros: "the food"
Cons: "the service was disgraceful"
Cons: "Very bumpy takeoff and landing"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic because everyone, no matter where they were seated, queued up half an our before the boarding began. There was no "pooled"boarding"
Cons: "The crew did not come around with water as often as I would have liked."
Pros: "The staff is very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "No announcements were made over the PA or out loud at any point for boarding, except for the last section."
Pros: "Better food than on British Airways flight from San Francisco to London. More comfortable on Are Lingus than on British Airways flight from San Francisco to London."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Dirty aircraft. Almost 1 hour delay."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly this time, though thats not always the case. The entertainment is very good."
Cons: "The plane was really old with no space to move in the seat. Once the person in front reclines, you pretty much can’t even get out to go to the bathroom."
Pros: "The crew was cheerful and the food was decent. It's a nice option for going from Europe to the US. Going through US customs in Dublin is much more convenient than waiting in line for 2+ hours in America after a 10+ hour flight."
Cons: "Boarding seemed a bit chaotic. Everyone had already lined up before they even started boarding business class. The seats and the on-demand IFE are a bit dated."
Pros: "Price Staff Efficient Comfortable Boarding and exit procedure excellent"
Cons: "Lost our luggage on our way home. Worst is that it has our toothbrushes and I can’t find new ones at 10:00 at night..."
Pros: "Great service. Food was alright. Quick boarding"
Cons: "Luggage took forever to arrive."
Pros: "The vegetarian meal was not available on either of my flights. I’d say they were a bit stingy handing out water as well. Space was good for the seating overall."
Pros: "The staff was generally pleasant (except for one attend on the SFO-Dublin flight. The lunch and dinner were very good (desserts as well were better than on other airlines I have flown). There was a good selection of movies."
Cons: "The seats on the trip Dublin to SFO were a bit cramped. I wasn’t able to lean my seat back as the passenger behind me asked me not to because his knees were already touching the back of my seat. The web check in was prone to error. For both legs I had to start the web Checkin at least twice. I also got an error page when I tried to print my boarding pass. I do’s not find a way to add my boarding pass to my iphone’s wallet."
Cons: "I didn't make the flight because I was a few minutes late and they used the excuse of US preclearance to not let me try to go ahead and go through security despite being there well over an hour in advance."
Pros: "Not much. I'm always grateful for safe travels."
Cons: "Their cc machines couldn't process America credit and debit cards (I was one of 5 ppl in my row that had the same problem). When I paid w euros they didn't have change, said they would bring if before I landed and never did. This happened both to and from EU. Additionally the internet didn't work AT ALL and none of the attendants had a Clyde as to how to set it up. Finally, the attitude at large was dismissive, the idea of customer service is clearly not one Aer Lingus has embraced."
Cons: "We reserved specific seats by calling Aer Lingus directly 4 months prior to our trip. When we arrived in Dublin from Paris, we were told by a very uncaring Aer Lingus representative that those seats were not available and were assigned seats that split up our family. He acted as if he could care less. The food was average. I have never flown internationally and had to pay for alcohol. Seat space is never great in economy, but this was one of the worst. Luggage for our entire family was lost for 36 hours."
Pros: "You can choose your seats without being charged and it was a very clean and comfortable flight"
Pros: "I thought the Airbus 330 was new, well maintained and clean, but the plastic fittings and layout were cheap. The crew was friendly and conversational."
Cons: "The food, which was small and unappetising was served 1 hour into an 11 hour flight, and aside from a burrito near the end, nothing was served. They said that the drink cart would not be coming around but the one time 1hour into the flight before dinner, and wouldn't be coming round again, so We'd best order our drinks ahead of time if we wanted any wine etc to have with dinner. Very inconvenient. Leg room ridiculously small ."
Pros: "Clean plane, great service, delicious food with a menu card to boot - nice touch - good entertainment: I highly recommend Aer Lingus!"
Cons: "The American pre-clearance in Dublin did not mind running me a half an hour late to be the last to board the plane with everyone waiting and ready to go, very stressful!"
Cons: "The boarding situation at Gatwick was a complete mess, they made us change the gate THREE times!"
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "We borded Kemal time, but did not take off until an hour later"
Pros: "My flight arrived late from Amsterdam. Once I finally got my boarding pass to San Francisco it stated them he gate closed at 10:45, it was already 11:15. I don't know where to go. There was no one to guide me until I was close to the gate and finally after running the entire distance I was told that the flight would not board till 11:30 and depart st 12:30."
Cons: "Awe linfus should provide assistance st gates and throughout the airport. The entire experince could have been made easier with a few words of assistance."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Limited choice of entertainment. ****Lost my luggage both destination bound and home bound**** Being kept in the plane for an extended period of time after having landed. Not even a coffee during the connecting flights (Dublin to Cardiff and Gatwick to Dublin). Poor connecting facilities and having to repeat security screening before connecting to the second leg of trip."
Pros: "Seats on flights between London and Dublin."
Cons: "Unfriendly staff, poor meal offerings, delays and long check in process"
Cons: "Booked flight through Kayak. In general a good experience except that Aer Lingus did not have any record of my grandson. Despite adequate documentation the AER Lingus staff were less than helpful and unfriendly."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and after becoming ill after eating the meal, one of the flight attendants was extremely nice and checked in on me from time to time to give me water."
Cons: "The special meal I received actually made me quite ill. I highly recommend bringing your own food on board or purchasing the snacks on the flight instead."
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Their hospitality was far beyond any other airlines."
Pros: "I've traveled Aer Lingua several times and been pleased enough to keep choosing AL for my transatlantic trips, however this, the on February 4th 2017 was my last favorite because this time i felt the low-budgetness of travel. there was less leg room, the food was edible, the in-flight A/V was not worth the effort of trying to watch our listen and the crew in my section not very attentive. Having said that, this was a one time mediocre experience that I'm reviewing and hasn't put me off AL at all - it's a good airline and I will continue flying with them."
Cons: "Late departure on way back"
Pros: "Nice crew, fairly comfortable seats. Lots of tv and movie choices."
Cons: "Food was not as good as flight in other direction. Limp and close to expiration. Boarding on this airline is always a rush. Flight is announced and advertised as wifi enabled but impossible to connect, despite multiple tries throughout the twelve hour flight."
Pros: "I loved that there was a personal entertainment system for each passenger to listen to music, watch movies, etc."
Cons: "The system itself is extremely hard to navigate. The buttons won't respond to touch well so it takes you 10 minutes to set up a movie. Mine also kept rebooting itself so I couldn't watch a full movie the whole way through."
Cons: "My checked golf bag was not at baggage claim on arrival. Not delivered for 2 days causing havoc and extra expense for my golf vacation."
Pros: "Boarding from back and rear of plane made passenger loading faster. I had to purchased seats with more room to provide comfort for long flight."
Cons: "The food was only okay and I'm sure that better food could have been purchased."
Pros: "Air crew are very friendly and welcoming. Plenty of space available"
Cons: "No water is brought around after the first hour until the plane lands so you could go 8 hours without a drink. Drinks are available in the galley but it's difficult to reach through all the people"
Pros: "A lot of space for feet"
Cons: "The service and food"
Pros: "Friendly staff, on time."
Cons: "For an 11 hour international flight the included meal service was pretty weak."
Pros: "The basics for the seating and in flight were fine overall. The airlines and crew were helpful getting our family together, although we had booked separately."
Cons: "The entertainment system never worked at all. When we arrived in Dublin, the car seat for our 1-year-old never arrived. Repeated calls to ask about it resulted in one voice mail and no call backs. I had to rent a car and drive to the airport an hour distant before getting anyone to respond. It cost us (1) car rental, (2) lost day of sightseeing, (3) price of a new car seat, and (4) price of a replacement car seat when we returned home as the one we could find on the trip is not legal in the US."
Pros: "See comments about the special meal. I did like it that the crew communicated better regarding water and beverages on the flight from Dublin, than on the flight to Dublin."
Pros: "flight was on time. staff friendly & helpful"
Cons: "absolutely no leg room-my knees were injured when person in front reclined their seat. No food choice-also too hot-potatoes mushy. entertainment- need more episodes of shows for a 10+ hr. flight"
Pros: "Impressive service & professionalism"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Staff facilitated a change in plan without the condescending drama of other Airlines"
Cons: "Increasing vying for hand luggage space. Persons with booked seats should only be allowed something over handbag size, small cases go in hold for no charge"
Pros: "Near empty flight, excellent entertainment selection, good food when served, low fare"
Cons: "Infrequent food (last meal was served very late and everyone was hungry), you have to pay for alcohol and extra food, touch screens are low quality, entertainment audio quality is poor with old headphone jacks, generally older plane"
Pros: "Staff were very kind and helpful"
Cons: "The two meals we received were not quite enough to see us through a 9 hour flight"
Pros: "Quick check in online, efficient auto bag check with helpful staff available, Quick efficient boarding, quiet flight less than half full."
Cons: "Being bumped to an earlier flight (7:15 from 11:20), not sure that was BA or the booking agent, but caused alteration of plans and hotel being booked."
Cons: "The other passengers"
Pros: "The drew were helpful"
Cons: "Sitting on the tarmac. No vegan meals."
Pros: "The flight was only 3.5hrs it was exelent."
Pros: "Crew excellent as always on BA, boarding fine, usual hassle getting to seats with other passengers blocking aisle,but when you choose to sit at the rear and the plane loads the forward seats first it's to be expected. Seats were very comfortable (much better than Virgin Airbus 330) and plenty of legroom. Food was better than on previous flights and drinks service was good - shame they ran out of wine, Bacardi and gin towards the end of the flight though! Liked the automated bag drop at Gatwick, much quicker and plenary of staff in case there were any issues."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment poor. Not enough choice, screens have seen better days too. Virgin do this aspect much better."
Pros: "Friendly clean and spacious"
Pros: "Getting off"
Cons: "This route needs a bigger plane. Always packed. Only a few rows of business class. Took off nearly an hour late. Economy on BA is very much a budget airline experience."
Pros: "Good flight, no complaints"
Pros: "On time, all the staff were lovely at the terminals and on the plane"
Cons: "All goid"
Pros: "The captain was very apologetic and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour, meaning we arrived at almost midnight and for me and a few other people their electronic boarding passes did not work properly I was refused at the departures gate and told to go to the British airways counter to get a paper boarding pass printed out. I also saw some other people with British airways electronic boarding passes having similar problems."
Pros: "It has to be said, the prices were good. But you do get what you pay for...… (in my case, a lot of extra time and stress)"
Cons: "Firstly Kayak is apparently actually LastMinute.Com? BA flight was OK, but not much different from a low-cost airline. Return leg had to be Ryanair and online check-in didn't work (ouch! - you have to pay extra to check in at the airport). I eventually found out (after frantic googling) that Kayak auto-generates an email address for you as part of the Ryanair booking process, and this is the one you need. I spent about 30 mins getting through to LM.Com overseas helpdesk trying to get hold of it. I also had to request hold baggage as a separate process and it took 10 days to confirm this had been arranged (again, I would have had to pay extra at the airport)."
Pros: "This is a no frills BA flight, but I'd rather do fly with BA than the other options. You have to pay for food and drink, the quality of crew far exceeds the usual low cost dross."
Cons: "Nothing for the price. Although my preference would be BA via London City."
Pros: "Quickness of flight."
Cons: "Came round collecting cups etc within minutes of being served. No sky shop. And I was sitting in 3rd row (by choice) but didn't know I would have a curtain inches from my face for most of the journey."
Pros: "Smooth journey once we took off."
Cons: "Plane delayed by one and a half hours due to a bit of rain!"
Pros: "Speedy boarding process, very polite staff, good food."
Cons: "Very small serving of drinks, not a lot of entertainment on offer."
Pros: "Service was really good"
Cons: "The seats for business class were economy seats but with the middle seat being a tray!! Expecting bigger seats with more leg room. Disappointed."
Pros: "Price was goo £200 cheaper than the BA price"
Cons: "Cabin very cold over the whole journey at the end of the day you pay peanuts get monkeys But BA has a very tired fleet compared to say Emerites"
Pros: "Check in staff and Crew are brilliant. Always pleasant, friendly and helpful. Some aircraft are a little ‘tired’ and a few things don’t quite work as they should. For example my wife’s headphone socket was broken, and therefore no in flight entertainment. But we managed. It was reported to the crew and they immediately set about recording it for attention at next maintenance and changed our seats, so no complaints there. A few of the entertainment screens are scratched, and the controls faulty. But still usable with a little perseverance."
Cons: "Seat row spacing too close. There is little point of a reclining seat because using it greatly inconveniences the passenger behind."
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "Flight at a very inconvenient early time, though booked months ahed. The aircraft had no leg room at all, being excessively uncomfortable. You could not stay in the market with this rubbish in Australia."
Pros: "Much quieter than Heathrow so a more relaxed environment to travel. Flight left slightly late but made up time and landed ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Having to pay for a cup of tea. No issue with BA charging for alcolhol in a 1 hour flight but still think drinks like tea/coffee should be provided free."
Pros: "fast efficient, lovely crew,"
Cons: "shame B.A. is turning into a budget airline, despite the high standards of service trying to be maintained by the excellent crews."
Pros: "Arrived on time. Routine European short-haul flight from BA with no frills - as expected"
Cons: "Late departure but caught up the time on route. Very busy flight with only middle seats available 1.5 hours after check-in opened."
Pros: "Great crew. Smooth flight. Excellent timing."
Cons: "It’s been a while since I’ve seen a load out that old on BA. Almost 1st gen personal IFE. The plan as a whole was fikthy"
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Crew, ground staff, courtesy, service orientation all hugely lacking."
Pros: "Last minute flight (booked 4 hours before departure), one way, economy, for €99 from Amsterdam to Edinburgh via Gatwick. Long layover at Gatwick (around 3 hours), but I had much work to do anyway, so time went faster than I realised. Not sure if this was the case at Schiphol, but at Gatwick had priority security queue as a BA customer."
Pros: "I thought the staff were helpful and professional. I had enough legroom and there was room for my wedding dress to be hung, although it was slightly small."
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulence but I know this is not the fault of the airline. Additionally, the in-flight entertainment was not working properly and this had to be reset on request. There were no wet towels/wipes to wipe our hands."
Pros: "flight cancelled"
Cons: "flight cancelled because of fog,........ there was no fog"
Cons: "Worst flight ever. Cabin Crew direspectful, vulgar language, condescending to passengers and manhandeling people."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "A two hour flight and they ran out of time to serve drinks. Maybe if BA reversed their ridiculous decision to charge for drinks, it wouldn't take them so long."
Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Food bland and limited choice Do not like the new bottle service in Club Service slow Seats very uncomfortable and less seat pitch than on other airlines"
Pros: "Everything was on time."
Cons: "It is a very good flight i seen. The flight was timely. Landing was very good."
Cons: "Booked 6 exit row seats only to have half of us moved. Somehow Cyprus is short haul? So no free soft drinks or food! The crew ran out of much of the menu."
Pros: "Crew treated you well, boarding was organised and as a silver club card holder I was rewarded with priority boarding (less queues, less hassle)."
Cons: "Old style entertainment console, small screens, no usb or plug point for charging."
Pros: "BA was great especially in JFK"
Cons: "Booked through Kayak and my mums ticket was voided so couldn't board had to buy her a new ticket"
Pros: "Nothing good to say its an old plane, rubbish entertainment system no help by the British airway's staff not even in checkin when my girlfriend struggled to weigh bag the staff just looked and offered no assistance. Hardly came round to offer drinks meal was foul and the Sandwick was inedible. I will never fly British airways again I wrongly thought that they were a premier service how wrong was I"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Bording was quick"
Cons: "Crew was serious, absolutely not happy to smile Genuine smile is really appreciated whenmeeting custimers. Food trolley/ drinks came to customers and before we could react it was gone. When we asked them back they were not very happy looking . Seats we not comfortable."
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "We paid $85 each to have extra leg room - which were horrible seats near the toilet. Which became a gathering area and we were unable to sleep/watch movie in peace. Worst of all was the fact that someone was sick in the toilet (inside and out) the toilet was closed BUT no sign is placed on it so people continue to line up and wait..... unless I told them it was not in use.... this went on for 2 hours!!! A simple sigh on the door was all it needed."
Pros: "Disability assist was good."
Cons: "Unable to use your cash on board. Having to use a card to buy something, like a drink, for £1.80"
Pros: "Friendly, efficient and caring. A comfortable experience at a very low price."
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Great customer service"
Cons: "One of BA system was down which did delay us"
Pros: "The actuall flight was not bad."
Cons: "Unable to check in online and pay for extra bags. As a result i paid more at the airport. I even showed the error to the agent and she had an i dont care attitude. Check in opened an hour late. Not what i expected"
Pros: "On-time departure, friendly staff"
Pros: "Lounge. BA is currently using First Lounge at Gatwick during the renovation of the BA lounge."
Cons: "Crew behaving like prison guards. Not helpful and friendly, a disgrace. Food catering a joke (peanuts and crips)"
Pros: "Free upgrade to Club was amazing. Really appreciated that gesture made Put Mr trip even more pleasurable."
Pros: "entertainment crew comfort"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Straight forward, free drinks and snacks, OK price. Service onboard at the better end of acceptable but not pushing over into great."
Cons: "They try to make boarding orderly, but they didn't finish boarding the seat numbers they called before calling the next set, and then did nothing when these people killed around and pushed at the front if the queue."
Cons: "Still at Gatwick. 24 hours later"
Cons: "I am so glad the lady in front of me did not recline her seat. My knees was pressed against the seat in front of me during the whole flight. It's really annoying that there is no knee or leg room. Be warned you have to pay for everything on this flight. And a G&T is £10"
Pros: "Lounge and boarding process"
Cons: "Plane was an hour late taking off and half an hour late taking off from Pisa!"
