Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."

Cons: "Menu/food Less choice"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Catering not up-to the standard. Ran out of food. Seats too congested"
Cons: "There was nothing to like. Considering my travel experience with Qatar & middle eastern airlines they've gone worst. The aircrafts need to be upgraded especially on long flights. Food was horrible and so was the entertainment. Would not recommend or fly Qatar again."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "I didn't appreciate the fact that Qatar opened so late at the Abu Dhabi airport, nor did I appreciate that the woman who printed out my boarding pass royally screwed up and printed gate 8 , when in fact it was gate 3. That was total BS. Supposing I missed my flight due to her negligence ??"

Pros: "48 hours travel from Europe Thanks to sucky Delta airlines that are absolutely the most horrible company Never ever again"
Pros: "Delta crews are very friendly and helpful. Seats are 'good' on the E175 plane - better than the cramped CRJ200 on some other short flights. We boarded early, left a little early and arrived early. Nothing to complain about, except maybe a crying baby behind me, but that's not Delta's fault. :)"
Cons: "Better customer service. Your employees should be te-trained and reminded they are in a service industry where your clients have other options to fly."
Cons: "We actually skipped this flight because the layover in Minneapolis was a full 5 hours, and it saved us time to have a relative pick us up and drive to Rochester, so we forfeited the price of the tickets."
Pros: "The overall experience on the flight was quite pleasing. The flight crew created a warm atmosphere on what was a very cold morning. Seating was not the most comfortable but the wasn't unbearable."
Cons: "Delta should have a better food menu for those early flights unless the motive is to encourage everyone to eat an organic and wholesome meal prior to boarding, something we all should be doing."

After getting to L.A at 9:52 a.m didn’t get out of the plane till 11:05 then the baggage claim was noted on carousel 2 when in fact it was carousel 3 when I asked a worker she said “I dont know ma’am” waved me off and kept walking. Terrible."

Pros: "Crew was friendly, flight ran on time."

Cons: "Freezing whole flight Coffee was warm not hot Lady in front of me never charged for her drink (beer)"
Cons: "No upgrade"
Cons: "The connecting flight from Atlanta to NY was rescheduled for an hour and fifteen minutes later, boarding for the delayed flight started late, closed doors were another 20 minutes late, spend another hour or so waiting for confirmations, during which no AC is on because of a malfunction on the plane with the electricity unit. Due to rough air conditions, no in-flight service, or very limited one - and all of those are fine by me, and not the airlines' fault at all. But then, during all these unexpected conditions, I can't even use the in flight entertainment system as i use Bluetooth earphones, and to get earphones I have to buy them for 2$. To earn excellent service, inspite of all the delays, AC malfunction and unpleasantness all you had to do was give those 2$ earphones for free. I have another flight with SkyTeam coming up and I do hope it won't be as unpleasant as it is a much longer flight."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The hand-me-down Southwest boarding group gates. The automated ticket readers. The whole de-personalization."

Pros: "I will know more on my flight back to my destination!"

Pros: "I got a seat in the exit row with lots of leg room. The entertainment that I didn't use offered a great selection with very recent movies, etc."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to take a bus to my terminal. I didn't like the fact that my gate was changed more than five times. I didn't like that my flight time was changed more than 15 times with no reason why until boarding time. I didn't like the fact that I did not get a seat assignment until boarding the plane. I didn't like the fact that they couldn't manage to scramble another plane and crew, but instead forced us to wait over four hours for one that was stuck somewhere else in the country."

Cons: "Boarding in order, by the seat numbers. That’s the only thing y’all can improve on. It was my first time booking with Lufthansa, and I will definitely book with y’all again."
Pros: "Nice to have room to spread out. Amazing that a staffer in Greece managed to quickly rebook us on a different flight due to delays and the fear of missing our connection! The best!"
Cons: "Food wasn’t great. The movie system or user interface was clunky - nice variety of films but hard to find them and choose them."

Pros: "Flight left and arrived on-time. Flight attendents were pleasant and helpful. Food portions and choices were good, and Lufthansa is always generous with drinks. Good value for money on Lufthansa."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, as clear instructions were not given about which group was boarding when and where to line up. Also Lufthansa did not do a good job managing carry-on bags, so that it took way too long to load people and many bags were left over once overhead bins were full. Seating area is cramped in economy."

Pros: "In this day of continuous service cutbacks Lufthansa has managed to keep amenities that make long flights bearable. The boarding was early and efficient. Meals were decent and plentiful. Hot hand wipes were provided. Hundreds of video entertainment options and fairly friendly English speaking flight attendants. I recommend paying the small upcharge to choose seats with extra legroom. totally worth it on the long haul"

Pros: "Crew were marvelous. Thank you."

Cons: "It seemed llike the boarding was rushed and a bit hectic."

Cons: "No option for food"
Pros: "Good quality: crew, equipment, customer service"
Cons: "Frankfurt airport: Had to walk for an hour to get from gate to gate. I was getting off an international flight and onto another international flight. International gates are usually closer than that. On the flight: 1. The armrests pull up, which is great if you're traveling with family or a significant other. But, in my case, it was an overweight and obese lady, who didn't fit in her seat and just slipped into half of mine. I was stuck with half a seat with her arm bumping mine for a 12-hour flight. I landed with a bruised arm. It was a round trip flight. When I had submitted a complaint, Lufthansa refunded me a 100$, which is nice of them, but I think they should have upgraded me for my return flight instead to make up for the first flight being uncomfortable. 2. I paid for the internet service and was charged double for it. Again, had to submit a complaint and was refunded the money. Check-in: The online system wouldn't allow me to check in online because my passport wasn't biometric."
Pros: "Always awesome"
Pros: "Airplane crew was nice and I was surprised(in a good way) by them giving to passengers sandwiches as a snack."
Cons: "So I actually had a flight that departures at 9:50 AM and it was connection flight after I got to Frankfurt at 9:00, but I missed it cause other gates were too far and moreover Lufthansa staff were not so nice to help me out. Actually, I was running there and got to the gates at 9:40 AM but air hostess said that I've already missed it. They said that I had enough time and that's my fault - I even should be thankful that I don't pay for another flight that I am going to be flying in 7 hours. Bottom line: I got to Kiev at 9:20 PM and moreover, the flight landed 30 mins late. It never happened to me, despite I've been more than on 25 flights. I am shocked by employee's behavior and the situation in general. Would never recommend Lufthansa airline to anyone."

Cons: "Every thing was very proffasionally managed with very good customer service and smiles."
Pros: "Nice flight. Wish all flights were as nice as this."

Pros: "On the whole, classy service and comfortable The flight attendant who took the time to help me understand how customs would work"
Cons: "The flight attendant who said she'd get back to me when I had a question about connecting flights. Not only did she not get back to me, but with annoyance asked me hadn't I heard the captain's message on the loudspeaker. The captain had said to ask a flight attendant for further info, which is what I was trying to do."
Cons: "Small plain and food was very bad"
Pros: "I love the service they provide. .the air hostels were great"

Cons: "Last round of food - a sort of pierogi - was awful."
Pros: "All. Excellent experience."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The flight attendant was helpful in confirming that my connection gate was C14."
Cons: "I only had 45 minutes between my Washington DC flight and my flight to Frankfurt and the flight to DC was delayed by a few minutes. Because the carry-on baggage had to be checked it took extra time to get my bag after the plane landed and my connecting gate was in terminal C (I arrived at terminal A), so I barely had enough time to get there, even when walking at full speed and not stopping once along the way. This was too short of a time between the two flights."
Pros: "Flight cancelled"
Cons: "Flight cancelled and Kayak never picked up the change."
Cons: "Windows locked dark for whole flight in the DAYTIME going over spectacular scenery in Norway and Greenland. No eye shades given out. Totally depressing. Food very mediocre with nothing Arabic in spite of great Arab food."

Cons: "Food is terrible Service is marginal They serve a mediocre meal right after takeoff then you don't see them again until right before landing with a dry snack"
Pros: "Great Customer Service, Great Food and very friendly staff"
Cons: "My experience with Royal Jordanian was great"
Pros: "I didn't have a boarding pass for Royal Jordanian as it was a connecting flight and the UIA groundstaff refused to print one for me when I checked in. Royal Jordanian was very accomodating and sent someone down to the terminal to help me. The food was tasty and fresh as well."
Cons: "I found used chewing gum in the magazine pouch in front of me which was pretty disgusting. The notice boards said the plane was boarding so I rushed from the lounge to the gate and they hadn't actually opened it yet (and didn't for the next ten minutes). Small things, but stopped me from giving an EXCELLENT rating."
Cons: "The delays"
Pros: "Very pleasant crew. Nice to have a meal on a short flight."
Pros: "Flight itself was great ... attentive service, nice airplane, food and beverages even when it's a short flight"
Cons: "Check-in in the Cairo airport: different lines led to large differences in processing time ... our line also processed business class which led to us taking over one hour for check-in (basically being the last one) and having to run through security even when we arrived rather early. No initiative by the check-in attendants to balance between the lines. When they opened two more counters to process check-in they only processed the 'fast' line. Pro tip: avoid the (economy) check-in line next to the business counter. This probably led to the second problem ... they gave us separate seats when traveling with a young child."
Pros: "Crew cabin welcome us warmly and very polite."
Cons: "Food wasn't too good. Couldn't watch movie till almost landing."
Cons: "They charged me extra 125$ at the jordanian Airport to allow me to stay at the airport hotel."
Pros: "Onboard entertainment"
Cons: "Check-in was insanely bad had to bounce between 4 different managers who were seeing who could do the LEAST. Then plane got messed up so sat on first plane for an hour plus then all of us shuttled to a different airplane. I have given RJ another chance like 3 times but now I'm done with RJ for good."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "If you do have other alternatives its highly recommended that you do avoid flying on this airlines"
Cons: "Food is the worst thing you can ever imagine putting in your mouth. The seats are very bad，the space between rows are very little. If you're over 5` 10”，then it will be like a nightmare sitting at this flight."
Pros: "The food during the flight is very poor and especially the breakfast. I really expect to get better food . It's even worse in the business clas."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding process, nice person at check-in counter"
Cons: "I used the restroom in the plane before takeoff and the it was absolutely filthy. It was clear it did not receive any attention between flights. I was sitting in the emergency exit row and, during takeoff, the plane made a horrible, howling/whining noise that I've never heard before. Everyone was looking around and fearful. I fly often and this was the kind of noise when you wonder "is this where it all ends?" Not sure if it was the engine just outside or the emergency exit not being fully sealed but it was the first time in a long time that I've been fearful on a plane."
Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "The Capain kept us well nformed"
Cons: "4 hours trip, international, and only food to purchase."
Cons: "I'm still at Heathrow 12 hours later. I never made it to Oslo."
Pros: "Gate was super close to the lounge."
Cons: "The security check at the gate requires one to leave the comfort of the lounge early incase of queues and then wait in an over crowded lounge with the other passengers (so the fact you are business/first or have one world status does little to ease the burden of boarding. The lounge also did not offer red eye passengers a meal and the on board meal service is slow (so if you are hungry it eats into precious sleeping time). The breakfast wakeup was also disappointing. My meal of choice was not available and the whole process was rushed like a fast food restaurant. Overall I am disappointed by the club world offering on this route and would not pay for it again unless intended to get on and just sleep for the entire journey."
Pros: "Great crew. BA lounge at Heathrow excellent."
Cons: "Flight delayed 4 hours due to technical issues. BA for a new plane but unfortunately still 4 hours late leaving Heathrow."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly. Engaged in genuine conversation. The aircraft was newish and clean."
Cons: "Avoiding Atatürk Airport full stop."
Pros: "Nothing to like at all."
Cons: "There is no food even water at international flight!!! Terrible service."
Pros: "Good service, good flight, all on time."
Pros: "Comfort of the journey, take off and landing were expertly done, approach was just the right speed and contact was soft but firm. Crew were pleasant enough. One of them felt he always had to show his authority with a firm voice, not necessary but maybe that’s how he speaks. In general no problems"
Cons: "I’m quite disappointed to have to buy food on an airline of British airways stature. My only gripe with whole day."
Pros: "I left my laptop behind accidentally in the hand luggage space as I had to separate my hand luggage due to other seats nearby who boarded earlier used the space over my seating row. BA crew found my laptop and the swiss lost property retrieved it for me. Very thankful for their honesty"
Cons: "My seating was directly behind a curtain and partition to business class, therefore my seating space was very limited and squashed. No refreshments unless you paid??? why?? I would expect this from companies such as Easyjet or Virgin, but not BA. Even Qantas provided a light refreshment for short runs, say between Canberra and Sydney (Im an aussie)"
Pros: "Was a new aircraft, very clean. M&S food is good (though extra of course)"
Cons: "The new seats are now no different to a no-fills airline, seriously BA, no seat recline option?! 3 times price of Easyjet yet no difference in comfort. No Map display of progress. Shall we call you Beasy jet now then?"
Cons: "Very bad smell, pass landing"
Pros: "I remember time when BA was an example other airlines (professional crew, food on board, etc)... Seats are still better than so called cheap lines and more spacious aircraft. Baggage policy quite generous (however expensive)."
Cons: "Well, I believe that now British Airways reach a level of Ryanair... Prices haven't changed thou, still medium range. Customer service very low, no on-board food anymore (even in quite a long haul flights), ridiculous "priority" system, dated planes..."
Pros: "There was NO water in a 4+ hour flight unless you pay!!"
Cons: "Non of the three bottles I asked for on duty free were onboard It is apauling that food & drinks have to be bought in such a long flight including water!!!"
Pros: "Customer service was awesome"
Pros: "Boarding was fast! Typical short flight."
Cons: "Not even a glass of tap water was offered complimentary."
Pros: "Slept. Food was good."
Cons: "Always late always charge for water that’s sad"
Pros: "Just boarding"
Cons: "I am sorry to say but everything on the flight tonight was poor - from the bad food to warm drink and no entertainment and also the personnel. They looked liked working for cheap hotel. Very poorly managed."
Pros: "Everything on time, good communication, and great flight attendants"
Pros: "Easy boarding, friendly crew."
Cons: "Food and Entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was 45 minutes late. Crew was standoffish, bordering on unpleasant. They want you to pay for a glass of plain water! Definitely not the British Arways I remembered."
Pros: "Great service, easy travel from Heathrow Terminal 5."
Cons: "Shame the complimentary drinks have gone, sign of the economic times."
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "I had a flight from Atlanta to London with a connection flight to fly to Istanbul. The first flight was fine and smooth but the second was just terrible. Upon buying and resorting to British Airwaya, it wasn't mentioned anywhere that the second flight plans do not offer complimentary soft drinks or snacks for the three hour flight after a 6 hour layover. Assuming my flight was going to feed, I didn't eat a whole lot at the airport so I didn't have to spend too much money. I declined the cart the first go around and didn't seem any too interested or sure what some of the options were. I lasted as long as I could and gave in and pulled out my credit card (not accepting cash is another disappointment because my Turkish bank account was charged by pounds) but there was nothing but one choice left and it didn't sit well in my stomach."
Pros: "Good friendly crew, on time(ish). Nothing wrong at all really."
Cons: "No free food, but meh, very minor issue."
Cons: "I didn't get to go. The Turks said I couldn't even change planes in Istanbul without a visa -- and they weren't issuing any."
Pros: "I felt very safe on the plane because security monitoring in London was extremely efficient."
Cons: "Portion of food for dinner inadequate. Offered chicken and pasta but ran out of pasta. The man next to me wanted pasta but got chicken. The woman in front of me however got pasta even though she was told there was no pasta. She insisted she could not eat chicken. The flight attendant able to come up with pasta however. Most of the entrainment screen around me on the flight not working. Some however came on later in the flight."
Cons: "the booking stated that it was Aer Lingus. I went to their counter in Terminal 1 and had to wait in two lines before being told that I was in the wrong terminal and I needed to go to the british airways counter to check in. This was a fail."
Cons: "Food was not so Good. Poor quality. Very Little Space for economic flights. Blankets and pillows very poor quality better have your own."
Cons: "I paid for an exit seat and didn't get one and then I had the only seat with no entertainment for 11 hours overnight and no Joyce to move"
Pros: "Crew was fine. Didn't really do much."
Cons: "No food or beverage served on this 1.5 hour flight unless you paid extra. Not even water. Had to pay extra to select seats. You could wait until the day of the flight and do it for free. I wish I was informed of this before purchasing the non-refundable ticket. BA "customer service" was absolutely no help on this front and merely reiterated their policy. They are NOT a premium carrier and their practices have relegated them to bargain carrier status. I will not fly BA again."
Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "Nothing was offered for free to during or even a simple snack what about a sandwich, Huge disappointment"
Pros: "flight was relatively empty, and did not delay too much."
Cons: "No entertainment whatsoever. Meal is only a muffin or a cake of some sort. Waited way too long to disembark the plane."
Pros: "There was something to like?"
Cons: "This was a four hour international flight from London to Istanbul. There was no in-flight entertainment system of any kind, not even audio, and there was no free food or drinks. Not even a bag of peanuts or a soda. Everything had to be paid for. And if you did wanted to purchase something, it took forever since passengers had to whip out a credit card. Cash not allowed. I have never been on an international flight that made you pay for food and drinks. When I inquired why, the reason given was that this was a "short-haul international flight". Oh, I see. British Airways is now a discount airline."
Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Service, crew, departure delay, dated vehicle"
Cons: "The metal boxes below the seats mean that the little space allowed to a person is now all the more clipped. My backpack wouldn't even fit under the seat. My knees are already pressed up against the chair in front of me, now there's nowhere for me to stuff my feet even."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, gracious and helpful. Adequate space for my knees."
Cons: "I was in the middle seat, but surprisingly didn't feel too squished on this relatively short flight. I don't remember receiving food which means that it was neither good nor bad enough for me to think about it."
Pros: "I was late to the flight due to an accident and I have got a new flight quite easily"
Cons: "I have got a seat that can take t back, no one told me in advanced this is the situation and the flight attendent keeped telling me why it can't be done instead of looking for a solutioni"
Pros: "The flight was half full"
Cons: "The plane was half comfortable. We were charged for everything. Water, etc."
Pros: "Nothing really. Except the general BA at T5 which is fine"
Cons: "Everything about the flight. From low quality, poor breakfast on Club cabin to poor service and no entertainment on the flight. It is not certainly value for money for traveling Club."
Pros: "Nothing went wrong, everything on time"
Cons: "Mediocre service, not what you expect from a premier carrier, I have not flown BA in many years and my how the stands have slipped. Economy was sub par with little to no room, not comfortable for a 7 hour flight."
Cons: "Why do I have to pay for food in an international flight? Ridiculous."
Pros: "The very kind staff. The very edible food. The excellent Aircraft. Arrivals on time."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Pros: "Just generally BA. Used to be the prime airline to travel with"
Cons: "No entertainment on the flight. No complimentary food or drink for 4 hrs flight and charging the customers a lot of money. not really worth the money."
Cons: "Crew was pretty unfriendly! There was no food served and no in-flight entertainment although the flight was 4 hours! Worst airline I have been so far! They need to learn alot from other airlines such as American Airways or Turkish Airlines!"
Pros: "The food and the boarding crw comfortable"
Cons: "breakfast was terrible. It was beans, mushrooms, and asparagus. It also came with 3 pieces of fruit. Coffee was also terrible. If you sitting in the middle seats there is no space. The man's arms sitting in the seat next to me were pretty much in my seat the whole time."
Pros: "It was on time for a change, usually late"
Cons: "Volume on in flight announcements is always in excess of 90 decibles this is a health hazard. Priority boarding was non existent at Alicante. I think I will be using easy jet if this continues."
Pros: "The food was good plus drinks"
Cons: "There was no wifi in an 11h flight"
Pros: "Aircraft was fairly clean. Departure and arrival was close to on time."
Cons: "The boarding process is a joke. It's a free for all after "premier" customers have been boarded. How about an orderly boarding process starting from the back of the aircraft. The food is atrocious."
