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: "Everything was all set. Only shortcoming was No free wifi"

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: "I liked the choices of movies"
Cons: "The seats were dirty and the snack choices are not healthy at all."
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. :)"
Pros: "The crew was some of the best I’ve ever had."
Pros: "The food choices were broad enough for anyone. They came by with water periodically. The movies offered had a good range. The pillow was a surprisingly good size."

Cons: "Couldn’t hear/understand the pilot"
Cons: "Ran out of hot water on flight"

Pros: "I like flying delta. They always serve drinks first"
Cons: "It’s such a long flight. Not your fault."
Pros: "We eventually got there"

Cons: "Food was quite bad"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, the flight was on time."

Cons: "No upgrade"
Pros: "Olivia Sanchez and Yvette Diaz were absolutely. 100% phenomenal. They upgraded my friends and I to a flight tomorrow, and we can still meet with our group in time."

Pros: "Boarding was delayed, but flight crew & desk staff moved us quickly through & off we went. It was efficient & well managed."
Cons: "A bit cramped on board. Thinking of the discount carriers while smooshed in with my aisle mates."
Pros: "every person who was not a delta employee, those people were kind and helpful."
Cons: "The gate agent was the opposite of professional. You might as well get a cardboard cutout. The gate agent was unable or unwilling to explain when and how I would get my seat assignment and with what group I should board with. A passenger helped me. I am a frequent flyer, primarily AA, I will never fly Delta again."
Pros: "I liked that we got to my return destination early"
Cons: "The were no outlets and the wifi was not working. That's a big deal for me because I needed to do work on the plane!"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Cons: "We landed at 2:14 p.m. but did not get our luggage until 3:38 p.m., with "priority" because we were traveling business class. Dozens of bags that were not "priority" preceded ours."
Pros: "Boarding went well, departed on time and arrived pretty much on time."
Cons: "My entertainment system didn't work. I brought it to the attention of a flight attendant since all the attendant lights weren't". So they were having a glitch I the system. He said he had them reset mine. Hee must have furthermore until they did the beverages. They tried twice, nothing worked. No movies, no audio, no light. Nothing done, no compensation. NYC to Seattle, a long flight tho not even read my magazines."
Cons: "It was freezing cold on that flight. Cold air from side panels above the windows was blasting in our faces."
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Pros: "Good selection of free, in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed on the runway, but that wasn't the airlines fault."
Pros: "The staff was very helpful and kind."
Cons: "The wifi did not work, my seatbelt was literally broken/unattached, they had no coffee. This may seem minor to some but when you are at the airport at 4 a.m with a child you don't expect all yhese things to happen."
Cons: "The food service was way to rushed , no time to relax with a cocktail before dinner was being served. The warm mixed nuts were stale tasting. The soup was excellent. The breakfast was not edible . Not your usual standard, Delta. Makes me sad as my late husband was a million miler plus and we have always been loyal to you, Seems like you have too many passengers in business class to provide food and service you can be proud of"
Pros: "I fly non Rev so it's great to fly economy comfort for free"
Cons: "Seats were available so not a bad experience. Sometimes not knowing if I'll make the flight is unnerving. It's worth it however for the flight benefit I book directly through Delta so very curious how and why Kayak is requesting this survey"
Pros: "The flight being on time, friendly staff, clean aircraft.i"
Cons: "It was a morning flight from Toronto to Omaha via Minneapolis and unfortunately coffee wasn't served. Or maybe it got over."
Cons: "Delta refused to assign my seats until just before boarding, even though I booked my flights months in advance. This is very stressful and totally unacceptable to treat passengers this way."
Pros: "Very friendly staff and the onboard meals were surprisingly good. Korean Air may quite possibly be my favorite airline."
Pros: "The crew has a good vibe, makes for a pleasant trip"
Cons: "First time for me to have delayed baggage, made me think that somebody is not minding the store."
Pros: "Friendly crews."
Cons: "Crying girl whole flight"
Pros: "The organization, the shortening of the flight time."
Cons: "At the Orlando airport, the LACK OF SEATING BY the gate!"
Cons: "Expected to pay £30 just to reserve a seat. Most of the top airlines allow this to be done for free. It's about time that Virgin Atlantic followed suit."
Pros: "The Delta crew on the flight was wonderful - but the crew at ATL really shined. A huge amount of people for connections arrived at the same time and needed to get through customs and the staff were very calm and efficient in directing everyone and making sure the line moved."
Cons: "Great experience."
Pros: "None of the above. I actually liked nothing about this trip. Took off at London in time for Frankfurt, arrived early, but missed the connection to Tel Aviv. So I had to be routed to Munich to catch a 10:30 pm flight, which arrives at 3 am Sunday. So I wasted the entire day, starved, exhausted."
Cons: "Proper connection time. I lost the entire day, and now have to get a cab for $100 instead of my colleague meeting me. 3 am is impossible. And I am still not in Tel Aviv."
Pros: "It was long flight but everything was just right. Will use this company again."
Pros: "Cabin crew and service"
Cons: "Left over 2 hours late and we missed our condo in Chicago and had to rebook and spend the night"
Cons: "Bought the premium economy on Lufthansa, but ended up on Eurowings. Food same as Economy, 1/2 the entertainment choices. Definitely not worth the money."
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."
Cons: "Upon arriving to Frankfurt airport (gate Z) from Boston, i had an hour to make it to gate A including passport control. Once I got to to gates A50-69 I was told that i had to turn back and go through a different passport control as the one close to gates A50-69 was too busy/full. So I turned back although i had no specific gate number where the passport control was. Once I got there, after 10 mins walking (around gate Z20) around and asking lufthansa staff I came across a rather long queue. At that point I only had 30 mins until my flight to Budapest was boarding. I knew I would not get through that queue on time and there was no assistance. So I decided to turn nack and go back to gates A50-69 assport cobtrol where luckily there was no queue at all. I do not understand why i was turned away by staff the very first time I got to that passport control and why there was no assistance by airport staff. Not happy at all about that."
Pros: "Everything was great. Not a single downside. Easy to follow announcements on connection, punctual and nice aircraft."
Pros: "There were blankets and pillows for every seat. There are USB ports at each seat as well as headphone plugs."
Cons: "I did not like the delays over one hour delayed"
Pros: "The video library was huge, current and very helpful. The good was great"
Cons: "Way too stingy with ice - 4 ice cubes at one time was the max allowed."
Cons: "We only had 45 minutes between flights. We almost missed our flight to Naples due to having to go through security again in Frankfurt. The Frankfurt airport was very congested. I wouldn’t have booked a flight with such a short layover had I known how far apart the gates were and that we’d have to go through security again. I would suggest not offering flights with such short layovers."
Pros: "On time. Friendly crew. Great seat with space."
Cons: "Because the one came in from London Got Delay And I miss my flight"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and efficient. Flight was ready to leave on time but was delayed due to security concerns at Sea Tac airport; even though the flight arrived on time."
Cons: "I did not have a problem with anything."
Pros: "Same as above."
Pros: "short time befor flights"
Cons: "We missed the conection flight....."
Cons: "Waited an hour after boarding in the plane."
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!"
Pros: "All was good."
Cons: "All was good."
Pros: "Boarding areas are very comfortable and spaceous. The personnel are professiona and friendly. All flights were on time. Online check in was easy and relaxing which made for a quick check in at the München Airport."
Pros: "There was nothing I liked. The walk was too long at Frankfurt"
Cons: "My granddaughter of 3 years had painful ear block and the crew was so unfriendly about it unlike other airlines that try to offer remedies."
Cons: "Terrible food and atrocious crew staff -- impatient, rude, unhelpful and racist. Unacceptable to give kitkat and sweet offerings for kids meals both times. Zero nutrition and terrible for children. Adult meals were equally unpalatable. Aircraft was also older and not in the best condition."
Pros: "No delay and the landing is smooth"
Cons: "Nothing. Great flight great crew."
Cons: "Boarding seamed inefficient. Loaded handicap onto separate vehicle in middle of us boarding, so it stopped our process. My seat didn't recline even though it had a button. No in flight entertainment?! At all... Got a crappy breakfast omelet that i didn't want to put in my stomach."
Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "food and drink very good, flight crew was very nice"
Cons: "boarding was very cramped ,flight was delayed , I lost my luggage"
Pros: "Clean, new plane."
Cons: "Baggage got lost on a direct flight. A lot to improve here."
Pros: "Good flight, nice crew"
Cons: "2,5 hrs delay, no bus available despite boarding started"
Cons: "Boarding mix up, which was completely Lufthansa's responsibility, delayed my flight to Istanbul for one hour which caused my missing my connection with another airline. This in turn cost me the original flight and a new ticket purchase of at an exorbent price."
Pros: "Faster, newer planes."
Cons: "Flights were late and boarding was caios, no one had any clue what to do. Blankets were filthy. Entertainment had limited choice. Considering I took six flights in this month, I will let it slide that they ran out of New movies. Worst part was food. Obviously, there is no quality consideration when they decide menu. Check Emirates or other similar fare bracket airlines to understand the gravity of Lufthansa food problem. If one reason I had to choose to drop Lufthansa from my future consideration then that would be worst food and drinks. I would strongly recommend that they should assign people who need additional time to board at the back of the plane. It will help them to go back of the plane faster and avoid gridlock in the middle. Another advantage is it will help other passengers leave plane faster at the end of the ride. Boarding process will be come significantly faster by filling the plane from back to front by loading passanger with children and who needs time at the first loading area at the back of the plane. Thanks"
Pros: "Good service,always smiling flight attendants,"
Cons: "Small tight chairs."
Cons: "flight was delayed. personal works very slow"
Pros: "Boarding was fast Crew was polite"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on board!!!!!!"
Cons: "The food wasn't good. The beef goulash was chewy and a piece of gristle got caught berween my teeth which I had difficulty removing. For lunch I had a pizza margarita and nothing else. Something else like an ice cream cup would have been nice. I tried to check in a second bag online and was unable to do so. I paid $75 at the check in counter which is exhirbitant compared to other airlines. my brother paid $100 for a bag which was 9 pounds over the limit- that's outrageous!! The person at the check in counter had difficulty with the credit card machine and we waited over 20 minutes to resolve the issue."
Cons: "I booked through Kiwi.com and they couldn't handle my special food request (kosher meal). Somehow it didn't reach Lufthanza at all. As a result I had nothing to eat during the entire transatlantic flight."
Pros: "I liked that they passed out hot towels and how often they came by with food and drinks! Every time I started to get thirsty they came by with drink service! The temperature was great and we had comfy chairs that made napping easy. The pullout tablet for games and movies was also a great surprise"
Cons: "Small plain and food was very bad"
Pros: "Very organized,professional ,nice.."
Cons: "Was delay a little bit,but this is not problem"
Pros: "Enough leg room in economy class and feather pillows with cotton pillowcases made all the difference! They served lunch,dinner, and two snacks. Nice and clean bathrooms, very nice crew."
Cons: "I wish they had new movies, but overall, they offered a good entertainment."
Cons: "I couldn't get to the flight because it turned out I have to have a visa my two stops returning flight which was not mentioned in vyama website. I called the website and they didn't help me a all. I had to book a new one way ticket that costed me $1450 I have been using Kayak for 5+ years and I'm very disappointed that I had to deal with such terrible vayma experience!"
Pros: "On time and highly efficient as you would expect from the Germans. Airplane was clean and nice. Airport and boarding was very good too."
Cons: "Food left much to be desired but not horrible. They said they were short on crew staff (weird - first time I've heard of it) so service was a little slower than usual but not bad. Seats continue to get smaller and thinner which means less comfort for such a long haul flight. The seating arrangement is probably worst at this airline. I booked our seats and paid extra ahead of time, come to find out they changed the seat configuration and our seats sucked so we paid extra for nothing. Lufthansa really needs to fix the seat selection situation."
Pros: "Realistically the only even remotely like able thing about this flight was that the flight crew was pretty pleasant especially given how early in the morning it was."
Cons: "Honestly there wasn't much if anything to like about this flight. It was supposed to take off at 2:10am and I don't think we even boarded the plane until after 2:30. What's more is no one passed along any information, so no one had any idea how long a wait it was going to be. Needless to say it was very early in the morning, which is a horrible time to be left waiting and information-less. The delay definitely affected my perception of the rest of the flight as well. The comfort level was completely average -I'm a tall person so I've come to expect not being comfortable on airplanes, through no fault of the airlines. That being said despite it being a four hour flight, there was no entertainment on the plane unless you had downloaded the Lufthansa app and streamed through a mobile device. Given that there's no wifi in the Munich airport I don't see how this even would have been an option. Finally, the breakfast of eggs was really not up to par with what I've had on other airlines. I suppose it's unreasonable to think there could have been a food upgrade, but given that we were left waiting over an hour to board the plane (that not including actually finishing the boarding, taxi-ing to a runway and leaving) with no opportunity for food or drink, it would have been nice to actually have a decent tasting meal once we finally got going."
Pros: "The Frankfurt-Boston flight seat was comfortable & food was very good as well as the air hostess in charge was excellent & very cordial."
Cons: "Entertaintainmemt movies"
Pros: "First meal was great, second meal was just ok. Seats felt a little cramped for an international flight."
Cons: "Boarding felt like a disorderly free-for-all with people making two competing lines that had to eventually merge. Designating a clear queue would probably not only speed things up, but would improve passenger happiness. You could literally draw a stripe on the floor for each entrance."
Pros: "The food tasted really good and especially the bread was much more appealing than on our previous flight. The flight attendants were very efficient and attentive. I liked that they asked the person in front of me to put his seat up during the meal time. That helped me eat more comfortably. Entertainment options were extensive."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and was tedious. It took forever because there was not an orderly line and just a jumble of people. We had to show our passports 3 different times between check in and boarding. People had put their passports away, then had to get them out again at the gate. That slowed everything down to a crawl. Our party was not accommodated when we asked for seats together. My husband and I were separated and we were separated from our kids. The ground crew did not seem to care. Take off was delayed, but the captain never told us why. The guy in front of me reclined his seat the whole time. I felt like a sardine in a can. So uncomfortable!"
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."
Cons: "That if passengers with a original departure of erbil will be blocked for their final log that kayak or royal jordanian dont advertise the flight"
Pros: "Crew was good, but only so much you can do on a junk plane"
Cons: "The plane could have been better, a lot better"
Pros: "Super seat"
Cons: "Audio selection"
Pros: "Food was wonderful. Seats in Crown class were very comfortable. Crew was excellent."
Cons: "5 hours flight without entertainment, small airplane I. Addition to that my flight from Amman to jeddah was very bad, I will not book with jordanian airlines anymore"
Pros: "The flight crew and cockpit crew were amazing and they did their job professional and kindly way."
Cons: "Every thing was great."
Pros: "The flight schedule was better than any other carrier. The flight crew was very helpful."
Cons: "The space between rows really seemed much narrower than a year ago."

Pros: "The flight was on time and arrived early"
Cons: "The plane is old. Even though I was flying business but they need to renew their short and medium range aircrafts"

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."
Pros: "Our own tvs. Service was friendly. The tint windows are pretty cool. It did create a quieter atmosphere."
Cons: "We were in the clear tunnel waiting to board and could see the luggage being checked by dog, next thing, the dog lifted his leg and peed on my luggage. I knew it was mine because it's a very bright lime green. Not happy about that. Everyone in the tunnel saw it too. Food was so so. The snack was a joke, a bun with cheese and one tiny slice of a cucumber. Would've rather had chips or pretzels or cookies."

Cons: "Worst customer service ever. Qatar airways doesn't care about the travelers"
Pros: "Crew cabin warmly welcome us. Very polite."
Pros: "I like the selection of movies and the timing of the meals and snacks. A great crew did a nice job bringing around water, etc. They picked out a real nice seat for me on the way back home. Middle aisle and no one else in the row so I could move to the middle when the lady behind me kept on kicking the back of my seat. (-: Compared to other flights the RT price was reasonable and I could go direct from NYC into Amman."

Cons: "The only thing I had a problem with was baggage claim, we had priority stickers on our bags but it made no difference, bags were very slow to arrive"
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."
Cons: "Very bad smell, pass landing"
Cons: "Could you refund me 50.00 as your price included bag price but when directed to book I had to add on bags for a further 50.00 and because of this they wouldn’t let me get on an earlier flight on my return firstname.lastname@example.org or 07799411994 for response"
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: "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: "we took off and we landed"
Cons: "Checkmytrip kept giving different information about the flight. once on board with delay first officer said they would try to make up time. Soon it was all about air traffic control. said that FlightConnections would be working on flights for this with missed connections. not true - nothing done while we were flying, and landed"
Pros: "The crew were very helpful"
Pros: "The crew was sick and one lady kept running to the bathroom?!? The plane was old..."
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."
Cons: "When trying to check in online the day prior, the British Airways system was unable to load my reservation. Upon arrival to the airport, the rather unambitious fellow at the check-in desk refused to look up my reservation and instead insisted that my flight was in fact through American Airlines. After waiting in yet another queue, I was sent back to British Airways, where it was confirmed that Iwas booked on the flight, but that it would be to late to check my suitcase. I am still at my city of origin in London as I write this review."
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: "Staff tried to make up for the crappy plane with food and drinks"
Cons: "Entertainment started 90 minutes after take off do to not fuctioning.. No USB ports to charge phones so I couldn't use my own phone for entertainment. When the entertainment did come on it was horrible. Old screens and ear phone ports didn't really work right. Plane was out dated and old I probably won't fly British air again."
Pros: "Very pleasant crew"
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived on time The open skies lounge in Orly The meat and cheese platter was pretty good"
Cons: "The club sections have three seats with the middle seat blocked so it is like you are in coach nothing special at all. Easy jet with paying for up front seats is better value."

Pros: "full flight but well staffed and attentive. Great entertainment options."
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"
Pros: "British airways made sure they gave no attention to African flights"

Cons: "Considering there were a couple of empty seats I don't see why I had to check my bag."
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."
Cons: "Why do I have to pay for food in an international flight? Ridiculous."
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."
Pros: "Loved the new BA airplanes. Great staff and customer service"
Cons: "I would not use Kayak again. Went though some noname ticketed named webjets. Called multiple times and could not get anyone who spoke proper english. Due to the fact that you did not buy the ticket direct BA customer service could not assist us"
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 staff was very friendly and helpful. The timing and amount of meal/snacks was more than sufficient. The dinner was pretty tasty!"
Cons: "Nothing out of place as far as I could tell."
Cons: "My bag was lost on the way from London to Bologna and still hasn't been found."
Pros: "Crew was great. Really terrific. A+ all around. And that was consistent on all legs of the trip. But they couldn't fix this particular plane."
Cons: "Boarding was a zoo. Took forever. Not enough information shared. Everyone lined up for priority, whether had status or not. Once I got on the plane, the seats were AWFUL - the worst I've ever experienced. The pitch between them impossible. When passenger in front put his seat back, was practically in my throat. Couldn't lift the armrests completely, which was ridiculous. Even with an empty seat between myself and row-mate, we were cramped and couldn't get comfortable bcse of arm rests. Absolutely awful. Cannot imagine how much worse it would have been if seat in middle taken."
