Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Yes very"
Pros: "Entertainment, vegetarian options for food"
Cons: "Bit more comfortable seat"
Pros: "Food, seat, entertainment"
Cons: "The staff though friendly was found to be unhelpful. I was literally carrying three bags and a toddler in my arms, and passed by at least three crew members. But none of them bothered helping me. Your measure of success is not just how well you treat your business class. That’s not being world class"
Pros: "Everything was good and nice. Had a good time and felt welcomed. Had a really good experience."
Cons: "Handling flight delay"
Pros: "Friendly crews. Excellent food. Great service. On time arrival."
Cons: "They could provide hotel for transit passengers with long layovers."
Pros: "The best customer service i have ever expierienced, i have overslept for my connection flight in Doha - i received full support with booking my next flight for free, pass to business lounge, and finally the upgrade for my flight from Doha to Warsaw in business class"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Pros: "Crew excellent"
Cons: "Baggage collection at Washington could be improved"
Pros: "Plenty of beverage service and food was very good."
Cons: "The other passengers were often rude and uncivilized. I guess Qatar couldn’t do anything about this."
Pros: "Patricia (cabin crew member) was particularly nice to us, and encouraged us to move to a row of empty seats so we could lie down and sleep for the second leg of our 24-hour flight. Air ventilation on this plane is excellent. Food was good. my low-lactose meal found me even after I had moved seats. overall excellent flight."
Cons: "The food was not served well. There were no snacks on the flight. The service was not even prompt. If I request for juice/water it was served to me after 30-40 minutes . I was travelling with a baby and the staff was not even considerate about it and attending fast. I requested for a mineral water bottle as I ran out of baby water for making milk for the baby and the staff was so reluctant and told "they are done" and just left.I am really dissapointed with this. I doubt if I would travel with qatar again"
Pros: "Very comfortable flight and helpful crew"
Pros: "Staff was courteous"
Cons: "My meal preference was not available."
Pros: "Seating and comfort is great, as long as you are not seated next to a 'larger' person or a person with restricted mobility. Not a fault of Qatar airways, but probably the norm in most international flights in Economy. Food was the best of all the airlines I have flown, and the correct temperature as well."
Cons: "Seat width could be a little better, but this is the norm, I would assume across all airlines."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth; Plane was clean; Flight departed on time;"
Cons: "Flight arrived late for no obvious reason; Crew was good but not as good as what I have experienced in the past with Qatar and other airlines"
Pros: "Nice touches like the giddy bag of toiletries and air freshener in the bathroom. I appreciated the multiple food offers"
Cons: "I would like more healthy food sides likes vegetables. There were a lot of carbs"
Pros: "Air hostesses are classic.The plane very spacious ."
Cons: "Wait time to connect from Doha too longNo hotel accommodation."
Pros: "I flew from Bali to Doha and then Doha to Dulles after an 8 hour layover. Both flights operated a Boeing 777. The planes were spotlessly clean both flights. The menu choices were amazing and the wine selections were very good. What made the difference was the attentiveness of the cabin crew. I would particularly like to commend the purser and the flight attendants on flight 707 DOH-IAD for their assistance and willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty"
Cons: "Flight 707 was supposed to have the new Qsuites in Business Class, so it was disappointing that without prior notice the airline switched to an aircraft with normal (but quite good) business class seating. Nevertheless, the purser and the flight attendants made the flight memorable in a very positive way."
Pros: "Much better than the flight from Mumbai to Doha. The crew was attentive."
Cons: "Meals could have been better. The good didn't compare to business class on other airlines."
Cons: "Lack of internet access is not acceptable during long flights."
Pros: "Solid movie selection, good food"
Cons: "You have to go through security again at the Qatar Airlines gate, which takes extra time"
Pros: "Really helpful i was the first one out from airport because i was assigned wheelchair."
Cons: "Everything was all set. Only shortcoming was No free wifi"
Pros: "Onboard crew"
Cons: "Boarding process. It could start on time as printed on the boarding pass. If it is by zone, the provide a few minutes between the zones and adjust time accordingly."
Pros: "Crew professionalism"
Cons: "Food: at best a B+ Laptop Wrapping at gate: very slow process Entertaining: movie variety is poor. Seat: even in business class the seat doesn't recline completely... not very comfortable as compared to other airlines"
Cons: "Catering and seating. They ran out of food and drinks"
Pros: "The seating, crew members, and entertainment was really good."
Cons: "I was given two options to choose from for brunch which were scrambled egg with sausage and paratha. Upon asking for paratha I was told that they ran out of Paratha. This happened very first time with me. Even though the crew provided me with excellent service I was surprised to hear the Qatar Airways could run out of food?"
Pros: "-Great selection of movies, Ted talks, and games to view on individual screens, headphones were provided. - Blankets and pillows were provided to everyone, along with a kit with toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, and eye mask. - Adjustable head rest."
Cons: "- Tiny, cramped seats and aisles. I'd heard the Quatar has more leg room than other airlines. This is definitely not true. If the person in front of me reclined all the way, they crushed my knees and I'm only 5'7". - Bathrooms were dirty by 4 hours into the 14 hour flight. Sinks clogged, garbage can overflowing. Not just one bathroom. Gross. - Worst flight attendant service I've ever had, and I don't expect much since I've traveled a lot. Service was rushed, coffee cart for our side of plane never arrived, when I walked to the back to ask for some, they couldn't find the milk and made a fuss about looking for sugar. Lots of similar examples throughout the flight. - The baggage claim carousel number never appeared on the screens at IAD after landing. Other flights showed but not Quatar. We waited a while then walked around to check them all until we found the right carousel. Never seen this happen before. - One of our bags never appeared, so we waited until all luggage had come out and checked with the counter. They found our bag somewhere and brought it over after a 20 minute wait. No explanation given. Good thing we'd counted bags."
Pros: "Very nice"
Cons: "Crews walking between the lines. They don't care pushing to others. They never said sorry for that."
Pros: "The best service"
Cons: "Nothing bad to say"
Pros: "Excellent service and aircraft! Top tier entertainment and food and wine."
Cons: "I have flown previously with Qatar and was not so impressed. Everything was great this trip up until my return to the United States. I should have suspected a problem when I was requested to change seat in order to assist a family who were in separate seats. Moving was difficult as the plane was being loaded. I managed to get to the seat offered to find someone sitting in it. To top it off the individual was wearing a surgical mask and carrying a large immigration bag. I requested a seat forward but I was denied and I later saw other passengers moved forward to seats that I was denied. If I had known that the flight would have been full of possibility sick immigrants I would have chosen another flight or airline. At certain times the smells were very bad. I felt as a ff member I should have been treated better or been made aware of possible health risks."
Cons: "No leg room, very confining. Food so-so. I do not recommend traveling on this airline."
Pros: "Seats are very much smaller in economy. Hotel accommodation was no where close to good in comparison to Emirates or Thai."
Cons: "ANAZING flight staff! Friendly and courteous!!!! Loved them on all four flights!!!!"
Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "The flight was late boarding everyone on time. It was delayed 1.5 hrs. The entertainment system had its fault, as it was difficult to navigate between screens. The seats were uncomfortable and not enough room for such a long flight. The kids were extremely uncomfortable on this flight, as many were crying throughout the journey."
Cons: "I never made it to the Yerevan to Doha flight, because Qatar Airways did not get me to my destination in time. They had an emergency landing in The Azores, after turbulence and several passengers got injured, when the pilot failed to warn passengers to put on their seat belts and they flew into the air, hitting the ceiling before falling down. One passenger had a heart attack. Once they de-planed us in The Azores, not a single Qatar Airways employee helped us on site anymore. Passengers were left in the hands of hotel and airport staff. There was very little communication with the passengers. A relief flight was supposed to come in 12 hours. It did not come for another 35. After the emergency landing, some passengers noticed that a wing looked defective. The disruption may not have been due only to bad weather, but a defective plane as well."
Pros: "1. Comfortable. 2. Good crew 3. On time 4. No hiccups."
Cons: "1. Not having wi-fi (major) 2. No news channels in in-flight entertainment 3. No snacks"

Pros: "Entertainment and food"
Cons: "Could not sleep... Need more room"
Pros: "Crew was phenomenal. Felt safe and cared fir on flight."
Cons: "Food choices seemed a little under the Qatar standard considering the high level of quality for other aspects of this airline. Not airlines fault but took too long to get yo terminal at IAD Leg room a little tight in economy of 777"
Pros: "For a change, I found the cabin crew extremely courteous and helpful. A remarkable change from the last so many flights flown across different airlines."

Cons: "Inbelievably chaotic boarding process for Kili to Dar leg. No boarding lanes so had to fight through the crowd. Was able to observe cleaning process at Dar stop, which was cursory and am sure there was no cleaning of seats of those who boarded at Kili."
Cons: "Klm is the best, even on a 40min they served small breakfast."
Pros: "Flight and the crew!"
Cons: "Staff at the airport pushing you to upgrade to first class but not making it clear only the first trip from Athens to Amsterdam which the first class uses same uncomfortable seats as the economy to pay extra 130 euros ridiculous airfrance stuff! I should have flown all the way to NYC first class!!!"
Pros: "Flight arrived on time"

Pros: "Sandwich was incredibly tasty (although not much filling)"
Cons: "2 hours on the tarmac delayed with no explanation. Uncomfortable seats, no leg room. Poor management of seating, there was enough empty seats to have groups together but they were split up. Drinks served from a communal bottle in a polystyrene cup."
Cons: "Actually the Welcome on board announcement. The part where they special welcome loyalty program members. I do not get that... I am an explorer holder my self, but really?? so other paying customers are not as welcome. This is leftovers from the older days.."
Cons: "At some point the luggage was lost. here."
Cons: "KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Also, really tired of the fake business class on these flights..."
Cons: "Per usual, KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Strange choice of in-flight movies; no accounting for taste, I guess."

Cons: "Nothing. Could say there was no entertainment but I didn't want entertainment on such a short flight"
Cons: "Flight from Amsterdam was 2 hours late. Caused me to miss connection on train from London to Leeds which then cost me 124 pounds to rebook. No information was forthcoming at all at the airport and there were 3 different departure times given. Absolute chaos. The airline is a joke"

Cons: "Need better training."
Pros: "The food was really good. Had the chicken sausage with pasta and mushroom."

Pros: "Crew was great. Lots of leg room"
Cons: "Many screens weren't working properly"
Pros: "Decent crew and food. Fairly punctual."

Cons: "There were problems in the bathroom. All the paper towels were in a heap on the floor, and the sink was blocked. I told the stewardess, and she just shrugged. Obviously there are no bathroom checks on Srilankan Airlines and I don’t think that’s good enough."
Cons: "The airline needs to work on the human touch(crew). I did not understand why the immigration were questioning foreign travels for no reason. Lastly can’t reach the customer care number always gets disconnected."

Cons: "only two toilets, long queue"
Cons: "Customer service was abismal when I needed to add my infant son to reservations. Spoke with 10 different reps and spent about 2 hours total on the phone. Poor English."
Pros: "Colombo to Male & vice versa by Sri Lankan airlines has been very disappointing to be polite with regard to disgusting food served by them in small cardboard box with no choices whatsoever unlike a standard career nor what they practiced in the past by serving real food chics, not even a cup of tea or copy. Disgracely shocking practice by a national career & not by any means budget airline. Previously Mihiri Air served even better choice of food & drink at moderate prices but price of ticket was at least 50% cheaper. SL Govt with SLA With no regard for passenger comfort nor giving them a reasonabl deal on his sector should be condemned & boycotted. As a regular traveler I will look at Emirates as a better airlines despite with a different time slots still would be cheaper & value FO money. Wake up Sri Lankan Airlines from your slumber"

Pros: "There smile ver good at communicating and good services I travel overseas many times every year and I would love to travel with Srilankan."
Pros: "Being a QR Gold member and one world airline I opt UL for few travels by which i can get additional miles and travel in business with less money compared to QR. The service is good and the flights are always in time and well clean. There ia flat seats between Doha to Colombo and from there to Kerala is normal flight but its fine. Business class lounge in Colombo is good with free feet and head massage. When there is a five hour plus transit, free hotel is provided by UL. Overall i like their flights and service and food."
Cons: "Nothing as such"

Cons: "Cleanliness in cabin was very poor and food quality was extremely poor."
Pros: "The seats were made of stone which make the flight uncomfortable rest was quite good"
Cons: "Replace seats"
Cons: "Aircraft was old"
Cons: "Sri Lankan seems to fly very old A320 aircraft on this route, at least for the daytime flights, and these have limited comfort in business class and rather small entertainment systems by today's standards. But it's surprising that the food quality is also poor because Sri Lanka has such amazing cuisine as a country."
Pros: "Crew were responsive. 787 has more legroom & better recliner, window shading was amazing"
Cons: "Vegetarian food quality needs improvement"
Cons: "One food option.. VEGETARIAN.. when asked the crew member as to why vegetarian only.. she said not sure, but may be because most of the passengers were vegetarians.. REALLY????? Also no ice with drinks.. because they didn’t have ice!!!! But apart from this, it was another quality Etihad flight. Just didn’t expect the above inconveniences from Etihad! This is the first time I experience this with them."
Cons: "Poor service"
Pros: "Good sized seats and new aircraft, AUD airport is very pleasant and customer friendly. The vegetarian snack sandwiches are very delicious. I wish if they could offer them in every meal and to toddler passengers."
Cons: "I buzzed the light for service 3 times and not once did the attendant come and check on my needs. Our attendant was not customer friendly- infact I don’t recall her smiling once throughout the 13 hour journey. Overheard her being stern and rude with other passengers. I specifically asked the crew to deliver my stroller in AUD for transit since we were flying the next day and they didn’t fulfill our request. Luckily AUD airport has strollers so we used one and took it to our hotel. The fact that Etihad doesn’t provide hotel accommodation for 14 hour transits is beyond ridiculous. Really disappointed in this lack of arrangement for long haul flights."
Pros: "The air hostess was very helpful .I had a problem with my seat and she arranged for a seat where I was and remained comfortable throughout my flight to Washington. Love"
Cons: "The food. I had asked for a Hindu meal. It seemed I got a diabetic meal which was devoid of taste. It should have been normal. I think Etihad misunderstood Hindu meal with Jain food,where they don't use spices,onions,garlic etc."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient. Entertainment and food great."
Cons: "Crew was unusually subpar for Etihad. They were not nice, not attentive, not responsive. The plane was packed and loud with uncontrollable children and people having coughing fits. I did not see the nanny or flight attendants helping either situation e.g. offering water to the sick, ect. The toilet room was disgusting. The seat was cramped."
Pros: "USA customs done in Abu Dhabi"
Cons: "I will never fly or recommend etihad to any one of my friends or family."
Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "So i was with ticketing requesting for seating, and she said run run your flight is leaving , i did not get proper seat and i ran to find out it was NYC flight and not DC. I asked more than one Eithihqd personeel and they did not know the difference bewtween Nyac flight and DC flight . Then came back to request for seating and they again made believe my security will be declines if i waste timein requesting seating. Got a flight between 2 males for a 15 hour flight and a run across the airport with a heart problem . I will never fly Eithihqd and also will not recommend to anyone"
Pros: "Friendly and professional. Always with a smile."
Pros: "Customer service very good"
Cons: "Seat discomfort"
Pros: "I liked the cooperation of staff and the way they took care of me. Staff Took care of my request immediately and made sure I was comfortable. It was a blessing to travel in Etihad. In future , I will travel in Etihad only. I am planning to travel in June again and will book my ticket in my favorite airline, “ ETIHAD”"
Cons: "N. A."
Pros: "Every thing was good"
Pros: "Connections on Etihad. Abu Dhabi airport. Service and hospitality. On time flights and easy check in. US immigration in Abu Dhabi was a breeze."

No basic amenity kit (like blinds, socks and toothbush) was provided in the flight like Emirates Certain sections of the Abu Dhabi airport are disappointing. Bathrooms in that particular section of the airport were really dirty and broken. Also travelling by bus to the airplane is not desired for such a major airline home airport. I read somewhere that airport is going to go through major renovation in 2019, so I hope it will become as good as Dubai airport"
Pros: "The food quality was good but they repeated the same food when we started & before landing. Kids usually won;t like eating same food again."
Cons: "The food was not good and our flight attendant was not attentive. He didn’t make the people in front of us put their seats back up for landing. There were no blankets when we requested one."
Cons: "Seat was too tight. No foot rest"
Pros: "Not disturbed when i wanted to sleep crew was efficient"
Cons: "Very long flight Rice with every meal was boring , meals were infrequent for a 14 hr flight"
Cons: "They only had vegeterian options for the most part even when the expectation is that they would have at least some meat choices. They ran out of the meat options quickly. The crew was very nice though and arranged for a chicken meal at the end"
Pros: "Good media system. Great staff."
Cons: "Bad food. No flying nannies. Layover was long."
Pros: "Awesome service, smooth flight , great staff. Very spacious"
Cons: "My luggage got damaged, but it's being taken care of."
Pros: "Economy class is okay in terms of space set-up. The US immigration organization and process in Abu Dhabi is perfect. We save a lot of time when landing in Dulles airport (Washington DC)"
Cons: "I was surprised by the crew attitude; almost arrogant! First bad experience of this kind travelling with an airline from the Gulf :-("
Pros: "Service is excellent, seats are comfortable, food is tasty and the entertainment system is top class. To add to all of this the Crew is really friendly and helpful."
Cons: "On the flight to and from Abu Dhabi from DC, both planes had a mechanical problem with the toilet seats. The seats would not stay up, so they would come crashing down onto your spine as you were seated, which was painful. The only way to avoid this was to hold it back as you sat, which required you to twist around. This whole experience was uncomfortable and unsanitary. On the Abu Dhabi to DC flight, the toilet was self-flushing, as well. Except that it also malfunctioned and flushed every time before I stood up. This was an unnerving experience."
Pros: "I didn't like baggage handling. Took too long (over 1 hour 15 mins) to get bags onto conveyor belt."
Pros: "The food was pretty good for airline meals. We really made good use of the entertainment system which had many great movies and a kids interactive touchscreen. This entertainment system made the flight! Boarding was quick and easy and the ammenty packagfes (eye covers headphones socks ear plugs etc.) and a kids activity book was also great."
Cons: "The bathroom floors were not cleaned often enough and after 10 hours in flight the flight attendants stopped answering the call buttons. Not usually an issue as I like to get up and walk back to request something during long flights but we had children this time and this is harder to do when they are sleeing on you."
Cons: "All but one of the flight attendants, who unfortunately was not in my section, seemed rather terse and far less than kind. Simple requests from fellow passengers were regarded as inconvenient intrusions. The gal in my section would act like she had not heard the requests and then when the passengers would repeat themselves, she would snap, "Please wait till I've finished my service." She rarely would make eye contact with anyone while doing, "her service" and acted like it was a major inconvenience. It was a long flight but the crew on the way to New Delhi on Jet Airways were exceptional and made the flight as pleasant as possible. The Eithad crew lacked this attitude."
Cons: "Plane was not maintained at a comfortable temperature. It was just downright hot! But that was our experience with all our Etihad flights. Planes are not maintained at comfortable temperatures. Food was awful - boiled chicken taste While handing out sandwiches and drinks stewardess just gave my husband whatever I asked for without checking with him. Many times he was overlooked by the stewardesses on either side as he was in a middle seat. I did not see a single onboard crew crack a smile, robotic service. Not impressed with my first Etihad experience."
Cons: "There was a chicken sandwich offered in the middle of the flight that is by far the worst airplane food I've ever had"
Pros: "Crew are usually lovely and helpful with even the most difficult passengers."
Cons: "The food quality is sub par and the entertainment is not adequate compared to other Gulf airlines. I enjoy traveling and did not enjoy the quality of food and actually ran out of movies to watch on a 14 hr flight! I think their focus is on Business and First class. I like this airline so wish it wasn't so."
Cons: "I requested gluten free meals ahead of time, but the request was not fulfilled, making meals tough. The crew were very kind though and worked to make the best out of the situation."
Pros: "Very comfartable"
Cons: "Internet acess is to expensive"
Cons: "I've never heard of double booking an assigned seat! Don't ever fly with etihad, not worth it!!!!!"
Pros: "Food could be better"
Cons: "Didn't like the food"
Pros: "Timeliness of the flight and communication from the flight deck."
Cons: "Particularly on the flight from Abu Dahbi to Washington, D.C., attendants were rude with not only me, but other customers. They were short in their responses, forgot requests multiple times, and didn't make the little bit of extra effort to provide translators in Arabic, ensure an elderly lady next to me had the meal she needed, and secure the food options that we asked for. Our row was told us there were no more chicken meals for example, when we saw an attendant on the other side of the plane offer consistent chicken meals for multiple rows to come. They were just being lazy and didn't even want to ask."
Cons: "Myself and my wife were assigned seats away from each other. Business class seating was not as good as in some other airlines that I have travelled. If husband and wife and family are travelling together on a long flight it should be possible to seat them close to each other"
Pros: "In air service"
Cons: "leg room and boarding delays"
Pros: "Good food Good Service too"
Cons: "Think improving better service in rest room Long flight - magazines on demand to suit each national - no idea about its practicability"
Cons: "No dedicated line for First @ TSA Pre-Clearance at Abu Dhabi. This means you have to leave the lounge hours earlier than otherwise incase there is a massive line @ TSA."
Pros: "crew very friendly....always ready to serve"
Cons: "seats too uncomfortable......leg spacing too tight.....person sitting at window wanted to go to restroom or just wanted to gets up ....everyone from the row.....gets disturb."
Pros: "The plane was spacious with great features. The crew was friendly and helpful"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable. Food was ok, but could be improved in variety."
Cons: "Boarding process, slow and long - I have seen other airlines do it much faster. Crew were friendly, but lots of confusion among crew members. Entertainment was horrible - need new and latest movies. The latest movies available were months old. This makes the flight time feel a lot longer than it is."
Pros: "Nothing special."
Cons: "Food is not great. Coffee and tea service is bad. Coffee is very cold. They are rVery picky about cabin luggage. If if .000001 lbs are more they want us to take small item for example a pen from the bag. Due to this itself I do not want travel in future.ude if u ask something."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The food from Bangalore - Abudhabi was worst...Also I pre selected Veg meals almost 4-5 months ahead of my trip,however the crew said he can't guarantee serving it..and the quality was poor."
Pros: "All the flight attendants were professional and courteous. I would like to thank the staff particularly on my return journey who were very courteous and professional."
Cons: "Vegetarian food. The airlines need to differentiate clearly between regular vegetarian Vs special vegetarian meals. Special vegetarian meal is tasteless and has nothing in it. Also, the food portions are small and it wouldn't hurt the business if they include a decent snack in between the meals. Food wise, its a lean mean cuisine."
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Staff was fantastic, bathrooms kept very clean & food was good."
Cons: "Space for leg room in economy seats. Most international flights for economy have more room."
Cons: "My window seat didn’t have a window"
Cons: "The food was okay. The sandwich towards the end of the flight was not very good at all."
Pros: "Seamless boarding and seat upgrade to economy premium."
Cons: "Everything else"
Cons: "Dear Sir or Madam: My two colleagues and I bought our tickets from BWI to Geneva, via London Heathrow, through Kayak as I have many times in the past. However, the Kiwi.com travel agency did not flag that the ticket from BWI to London Heathrow allowed for one piece of checked luggage, but the ticket from London Heathrow onwards to Geneva did not allow for any checked luggage. Also astonishingly, we had to pass through Customs, reclaim our checked suitcases from the baggage carousel, and check in again through Customs to board the onward flight, both coming and going through London Heathrow. In addition to the extraordinary inconvenience that we could neither transit at London Heathrow to our connecting flight without going through Customs twice and that we could not check our luggage through to our final destination, we also had to foot a higher baggage charge to allow for checking in our suitcases, now that we had arrived in London Heathrow only to discover this that our onward ticket did not cover one piece of checked luggage. Had we known that the seemingly better price posted by Kiwi.com on Kayak’s comparative offerings came at such a high price of inconvenience and additional expense for the luggage, we would have taken our business elsewhere. It was deceptive of Kiwi.com to engage in such practices, even if it disclosed these conditions in fine print (for no one would expect, nor have I ever seen previously in the hundreds of flights I have taken as a Million Miler on United), without flagging this. And similarly, it was irresponsible of Kayak.com to allow this “apples with oranges” comparison on its website. I’m making three more international trips in December, but I’m inclined not to use either Kayak.com and most certainly not Kiwi.com for future airline ticket purchases."
Cons: "Daylight savings. Wrong time. Missed flight. $450 to rebook new one-way. What a nightmare!"
Pros: "Service and welcome was great."
Cons: "Entertainment system was old and screen was not working the first 2 hours."
Pros: "The attitude of crew long ques for toilet"
Cons: "Long queues for toilet"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "The dinner menu was ok. I didn’t like the breakfast at all."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and seemed preppared to do their job well."
Cons: "The seats were very tight, even smaller than other flighs that I have been on."
Pros: "Wonderful flight! Excellent, extremely friendly service! Could not have been better!"
Cons: "My flight never happened due to the cancellation."
Pros: "The flight was very short compared with LHR to LAX, so, I don't have much to say about it."
Pros: "Great flight attendants"
Cons: "Length of flight was long but there's nothing that can be done about it."
Pros: "The boarding and crew were fine."
Cons: "I did not like the lack of complementary coffee or other drink for a two hour flight, especially at that time of the morning. Coffee was available, but only for a price, as were other food items. This was unexpected and certainly not appreciated."
Pros: "Food was tasty"
Cons: "Was delayed"
Pros: "Every flight was late. And then we missed a connection not because we landed late, but because they didn’t have a bridge crew. So we sat on the ground for 45 minutes awaiting a bridge crew. Invitee were re-booked on a new connection, but low and behold that was also late."
Pros: "Crew, boarding process, food, cleanliness, movie choices were all good."
Cons: "There should still be more leg room in coach. The screen in just my seat had a "loose connection", as it was a bit blurry sometimes -- enough to be annoying, but I still watched a movie OK. No other screens around me had the problem; they were crystal-clear."
Pros: "The flight attendants were polite and efficient. The flights were on time. Easy check-in."
Cons: "Our return trip was "cancelled"__ However, we were bumped and rescheduled to fly Sunday and given no options. So, the return flights definitely put a damper on our overall experience with flying BA. Hopefully, customer service will do the right thing in the end."
Pros: "Hospitality from Crew members. Food."
Cons: "24 hrs delay for boarding this flight. No wheel chair provided though I booked."
Cons: "I had to watch movies with barely an audible and only one side of my headphones worked. It wasn't the headphones but rather the sound in the arm where the headphones plug in. Made a 10 hour flight even longer."
Pros: "Good crew, nice and comfortable aircraft"
Cons: "1h delay Almost no food alternatives even if now is paid and expensive, no vegan options Boarding onto a crowded bus with babies and then stay trapped in there in front of the aircraft for a long time is not understandable."
Pros: "The room on plane to Heathrow, wouldn’t know about way back considering I had to rebook onto Air India..."
Cons: "Just the fact that BA decided to hold us in UK for 6 hours to get their full pay and the fact that Heathrow ground crew had not enough de icing equipment and resources were at an all time poor response. Three hour lines for checking on status of bags, status of flights, unable to book a hotel through BA and got nothing from them. I didn’t enjoy freezing and staying there in Heathrow freezing... plus I didn’t fly this flight home due to fears of them not being able to handle a coating of snow versus what loads of snow we recieve in the states. I had to take Air India home to the US AND HATED IT... thank you BA and especially Heathrow Number one for lack of response and total irresponsibility..."
Pros: "Very accommodating addentents. Was very impressed! Looking to fly with you all again soon! Thank you!"
Pros: "Crew was nice and we all have individual video screens"
Cons: "No charging stations for electronic devices"
Cons: "you have to pay for even complementary drinks"
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Late catering delayed flight. Fix ground services."
Pros: "Great flight and service."
Cons: "No power outlets at seats."
Cons: "The entertainment system is outdated and the touchscreen was poor"
Pros: "This was the first time I had flown into Oakland instead of SFO. It was faster, easier and close to my destination than San Francisco Airport."
Cons: "The selection of music on BA flights has fallen dramatically in the last year. I prefer to listen to music rather than watch movies and in the past there was a good selection and a broad choice."
Pros: "On time. Plenty of space on seats"
Cons: "I asked as soon as boarded what were your gluten free food options were? Told there would be hot food options. But this one meal was sold Hence I got nothing to eat as there was no other option"
Pros: "Very helpful and courteous staff."
Cons: "I don't like that the armrests between seats don't go up all the way. That makes it impossible to stretch out if there's an empty seat next to you. Also, there's too big of a space between the window seat and the window, so you can't lean your head against the side of the plane to take a nap."
Pros: "British air way flight from London to lax"
Cons: "Amarican air line is so poor in service . No tv that worked drinks and food"
Cons: "No WiFi available. Bad flight tracker."
Cons: "My daughter spent several hours in the checking in process. It was vary confusing and frustrating."
Cons: "Was not given an aisle seat"
Pros: "I like the way they treat people. Each crew member was friendly and worked very hard to please everyone"
Cons: "I have no negative comments."
Pros: "We arrived safely at our destination. Our bags arrived at our destination. Plenty of room in the overhead compartment. Due to a security snafu unrelated to the airline, we arrived at the gate after boarding was over but the gate crew were gracious and welcoming and let us board. The male flight attendant was quite nice. The entertainment screen choices were decent, and the hand-held controller was a great improvement over the touch-screen variety. There were multiple lavatories available. There was a decent amount of space by the lavatories that we could use for stretching and exercising. The wrap they gave us for high tea was pretty good."
Cons: "Seats were very cramped. I was sitting on the right next to the window, and there was no room for me to extend my right leg while facing forward; I had to twist to my left and extend my legs under the middle seat in front of me (fortunately my wife was next to me so I could do this). In addition, the passenger seated in front of me decided to recline his seat, nearly knocking over my drinks in the process, which left me with very little usable space. I haven't ever felt that cramped on an international flight. The main meal was very low quality. I had the pasta and it was quite awful; the sides were quite bad, as well. One of the female flight attendants was rather testy and unpleasant throughout the flight. She, and another female flight attendant, seemed put out when passengers asked questions about the food offerings, as though we should already have known what was being served. One passenger had just woken up and seemed confused and the flight attendant was quite impatient with him. The flight attendants were quite stingy with the water and only poured out a little bit at a time; they also came very infrequently, which meant that we had to keep pressing the call button to ask for more (which made us feel bad about bothering them). They would not give us a whole bottle of water, saying that there was not enough, but did, when we asked, provide multiple plastic cups of water at a time, which just seemed wasteful (of cups, not water). The timing of drink service was also perplexing: they did not offer drinks at least 45 minutes before or after bringing the boxes of salty "movie snacks"."
Cons: "Took forever to serve cold drinks and food. Said we were going to have a short flight due to tail wind so they would not serve hot drinks. Mean while we landed at the expected time of arrival."
Pros: "Pleasant check in process. Long layover tags put on our checked bags On time"
Pros: "Flight attendants really are nice folks"
Cons: "1. Bought ticket via kayak chicago to prague, so I got outgoing trip on British airways but they codeshare it out to Aer Lingus. Unfortunately, these dumbos haven't figured out that no matter what the gyrations they do, I still want to be able to pick my seat beforehand. Nada. Not possible online. And forget calling aer lingus 800 number. called twice and was on hold for 30 min each time, they dont bother answering. 2. At airport, I was willing to pay extra for a good seat because of the issues above, so they said they would help me out. Ha - the manager who purportedly was helping me out gave me a seat up front next to a shrieking infant and behind a bassinet (he knew exactly what he was doing but didnt care). They really lie and think we're idiots. 3. Same thing for flight from dublin to prague. This time last row next to toliets Dont fly aer lingus if you dont book directly with them, same for british airways I looked at BA's website - they do let you book a seat in advance but you must pay something for every single seat. Crazy. There are no free seats"
Pros: "I thouht that the seats were comfortable. When we boarded the Madrid to London flight, we were surprised to find that the aisle seats that we had paid extra to book had been changed, and although my husband had an aisle seat, I did not. On the longer flight from London to Seattle , we did both have aisle seats, which was important to both of us. We get up more frequently than many people to use the bathroom."
Cons: "There were a couple of women who were very cold, and there were no crew members in economy class who could speak Spanish who could respond to them appropriately to them. The attendants just kept saying, sorry, I don't speak Spanish. This seemed very surprising to me, as the flight connected a Spanish- speaking country to London!"
Cons: "We were asked to check in our luggage as there was not sufficient space in the cabin which obviously delayed our plans of getting a train to other location from the airport after lading as we had to collect the bags etc"
Pros: "My flight going to the UK was rough, but the flight home was as solid as being on the ground. This is my third round trip with BA and while the trip home last year I experienced poor customer service from the flight attendant assigned to our side of the plane, both my inbound and home bound flight crews, this time were exemplary. Very kind and caring. The pasta was very good."
Cons: "The single Halloween size kit-kat bar that we were given as a snack. Was so small that I naturally believed that we could take more than one. I was politely told that the singe 3.5inch twin wafers were all that we were allowed per person. We have a candy jar, in our office and with the extra supply in the supply closet, we would have been able to give everyone at least two. So, my recommendation is if you are flying transatlantic, to stock up at Heathrow for extra food. Also, the seats were very very small. I was lucky and the plane was not sold out, so both flights my seat mate and myself were able to put a seat between each other. I found myself reasoning that for the price of the flight I was paying for transport to England not for comfort."
Pros: "I was unable to check in online because the sytem required me to have a visa which I did not need. This in turn did not allow me to upgrade my seat. Seats were available on the flight considering it was a 747-400 jet liner. All in all I was happy with the flight since no one sat next to me during the 7 hour flight."
Cons: "Entertainment. Food. The crew was great."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly crew, good food, individual entertainment consoles, and plane was not very crowded."
Cons: "Extra charge for items traditionally included on trans-Atlantic flights, entertainment choices dated and limited, assigned seating clumped travelers together instead of spreading them out among available travelers."
Pros: "Very good"
Pros: "Flight left and arrived ontime and early both departure and arrival."
Cons: "Seats are a bit uncomfortable in economy,"
Cons: "PLANE LEFT (ALMOST) 2 HOURS LATE...ONLY ONE AGENT CHECKING IN PEOPLE AT TERMINAL"
