Staff was very nice. Seats were comfortable. We had to wait in line 30 min for boarding. Otherwise everything else was excellent.
Our only checked in luggage didn’t arrive from jfk to Istanbul
Very tight seats and spaces, almost impossible to watch the screen or eat a meal if the seat in front of you is pushed back. Attendants were not accommodating. Two meal options were offered, pasta & beef. Ordered pasta, I was told there is no more pasta. Ordered beef meal instead, received salmon meal. Later during flight I saw attendant sitting down in their station eating pasta meals. The list goes on....
Ewr staffing had us waiting on the tarmac for 30 min dor a marshaller and someone to get the jetway to the door. Not Turkish Airlines fault on that one. Seating in economy was tighter than previous flights. An older A-330 was our plan. 6’1” with long legs, had to put my feet in the aisle for most of the flight due to lack of space
Rude customer service. Felt some type of prejudice
Staff is excellent. Friendly and helpful. Food was quite good. Boarding process is smooth and quick, and our flight was timely.
Very poor customer service Airport staff has no compassion Hotel stay was worst ever in my life Very rude hotel staff No food provided during hotel stay Flight connected delayed for 6 hours on outbound flight and missed connection due to flight delay on inbound flight
Everything good, Thanks so much
Everything was great with Turkish Airlines.
Cons: "Turkish Airlines are doing great job for customer satisfaction services and timing"
Cons: "This is my first flight with Turkish Airlines. It is much better than every Europe Airline company. Until the Covid19 pandemic is over I will not fly to Europe with any European company. Turkish Airline are that good. On top of that you get to transport two big bags of luggage for free."
Pros: "Everything was great one of the best airlines I've flown on"
Pros: "The Flight crew was excellent - Inflight services were really good. However, the ground service and customer service was horrible!"
Cons: "In-ground service is terrible. Turkish Airlines on-ground staff and customer service staff don't know how to handle any problems. They are unconcerned and unhelpful. They just keep shrugging their shoulders."
Cons: "The flight from LAX Ron Istambul was delayed for 2.5h, then the flight from Istanbul to belgrade was delayed by 3.5h. Then we learned that our luggage did not arrive, after waiting for all the bags to come out. This was by far the worst flight we have ever experienced!"
Pros: "I was impressed by how Turkish Air treated me when I missed my connecting flight in Istanbul It was confusing to say the least but once I got to the right location they could not have been any friendlier, kinder, or gracious My hats off to Turkish Air THANK YOU"
Cons: "It was a tight space and they kept giving me things (pillow,blanket, slippers and socks, and headphones) that I didn’t need or have room for I appreciate the thought Return trip I’ll be more aware and decline what I don’t need"
Pros: "I never usually like plane food but liked Turkish Airline meals on all flights I’ve been on so far"
Cons: "I do like turkish airlines but wasn’t happy with this flight. On check in we were left with seats towards the back of the aircraft. The lady seated neit to us in the aisle seat was in a wheel chair so was a problem if having to get in and out. I didn’t think it was fair that a person who depends on a wheel chair sits so far back on a plane. She also had to deal with our crying baby"
Pros: "Good food, new movies and good leg space"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by an hour, luckily managed to make my connecting flight"
Pros: "The food and the staff are excellent. 90% of the time I can get an exit row seat as I am 6 foot 2. I fly Turkish airlines frequently. This time the plane was full, so I understand that it was not possible."
Cons: "A passenger and his wife were not seated together, so the passenger wanted to stand in the isle and talk to his wife over the top of me for significant portions of the fight. In a full flight keeping passengers out of the isle os key. I know this was a difficult flight for the crew."
Pros: "The entertainment option was pretty good"
Cons: "For such a long flight, there’s not much legroon."
Pros: "Perfect service. Perfect food. Best lounge. Flawless"
Pros: "Movie options were good. Even though I didn't use it, they offer 2 checked bags for free in the economy class compared to the standard 1 that most airlines give."
Cons: "Nothing specifically. It was a pretty standard flight experience."
Pros: "I loved the amount of attention and consoling that was given to an ailing elderly woman on my flight to Turkey! On my flight to Ghana the attendants were so gentle and provided a lot of ammenities. Oh and the hotel was an amazing experience and respite especially after the run-around at the airport. Thank you"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the run-around I was given in trying to find the hotel desk. “50 meters then turn left” was the anthem. All someone had to say was go outside the airport and you’ll find the hotel desk! Hehe thank you Turkish Airlines however! Thank you."
Pros: "The crew is very nice and try to make the flight experience easier."
Cons: "They lost my luggage, and this is not the first time either"
Pros: "Infinitely superior to BA on the London to Istanbul route , in economy but especially so in business. Great entertainment whilst BA have non. Also full service meals in economy whereas BA make you pay on boatd"
Cons: "Turkish Airlines sells you a long layover business class ticket but then cannot deliver the promised hotel as American passport holders cannot leave the airport So enjoy your 22 hour layover in the gate area This is fraud This change in visa for USA passport holders was known for weeks but they chose not to let customers know when booking the tickets Kayak You should take this up with Turkish Airlines as this is blatantly false advertising and you are supporting this fraud on your site by not highlighting the restrictions"
Pros: "I like the food and movies"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Very friendly and helpful, and a couple was very helpful in getting me a better seat because I'm 6'4", and for some reason, the ticket people feel it's ok to put me in the middle between people when the extra room seats seem to be given to short people. 3 Flight Attendants worked hard to find me an open aisle seat."
Cons: "Turkish Air's seats are too small, with horrible leg room, and they always have their planes too hot. They have to do something about it because if you're over 6' tall, it will be a horribly uncomfortable flight, especially when that flight is 13 hours."
Cons: "Lost my baggage and didn’t get any clear answer about it"
Pros: "Crew,boarding,comfort,entertainment and food."
Pros: "First time I've had a gift in economy! Very minimal, but nice! Food was very good - especially for airline food. Crew all very nice, and pre-flight in SFO was efficient and pleasant."
Cons: "I'm a wheelchair passenger, which was a DISASTER in Istanbul!. It took nearly an hour to get to off and to passport control. And on the plane, it was very uncomfortable because of so little leg room. To get out of the window seat to go to the toilet was as bad as it gets, because of row in front with reclined seats - only possible to scoot across in sitting position. Not easy....!"
Cons: "The broke my baggage. I have been flying a lot lately and never had any issues until I flew with Turkish Airlines. They are incredibly unorganized, late, gave headphones just so I could watch a map since nothing else was being played for some reason, etc. I won't be flying them again."
Pros: "The food was delicious. I loved that there were blankets, pillows, and headphones for everyone and they were not at extra cost. We also received care bags with lip balm, socks, slippers and a night mask as well as a toothbrush and toothpaste. The flight did not seem like 12 hours. Thankfully."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and nice."
Pros: "Gave us direct flight back to Singapore in premium economy seats."
Cons: "This is our second experience of flights being cancelled via Turkish Airlines. Very disappointing customer care when flights get cancelled. Staff totally unprepared and untrained for such situations. We waited around for 6 hours before finding out on our own, that the flight was cancelled. The notice was not shown on the board. In all waited around at the airport for more than 10 hours before we were finally carted off to a small hotel near by at 1230am in the morning. Very little to no information given throughout the whole process, stranded with parched throats, no luggage, clean clothes or toothbrush."
Cons: "leaving late"
Pros: "These middle distance flights have planes that have no personal intertainment screens in buisness class. The seats have limited comfort even though there is enough room. These planes need to be updated. Service was good and the crew is very friendly."
Cons: "There was a long line at the bus gate B60 due to a lack of personnel."
Pros: "Crew are always available and helpful"
Cons: "Food was dreadful. I thought I had chosen a seat online, but discovered I was in a middle seat. Having 3 seats on the sides makes it very difficult for the window seat occupant to maneuver."
Cons: "This time the food was a disappointment. I had ordered a vegan meal and the hot course was dried up pasta, no protein."
Cons: "I was disappointed that the airline proactively cancelled the flight I booked and then refused to rebook me onto another airline and failed to offer me a return home within 24 hours of the flight I'd originally booked. Then, when trying to resolve the situation, the airline repeatedly gave me the runaround, directing me to talk to various people in person, and on the phone, before finally making clear that they wouldn't rebook me. Why waste my time and give me false hope if they weren't going to do it?"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and 36 hours later, I am stuck at a hotel with 100s of other people none of who have a clue how to contact the airline as all the phones are not being attended to. The Indian sales and reservation team as well as the Turkish customer care are not responding to the situation at all."
Pros: "Appreciated the lights being dimmed, to make it more restful."
Cons: "Would have enjoyed ice with the juice, or colder beverages."
Cons: "Check in late, rude staff, bad food"
Pros: "From extra free bag, to all the little things they give you to make you feel much more comfortable, to the scrumptious meals and constant attendants attentiveness to passengers needs. Loved everything!!! Especially the way we can follow our route on the screens."
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "Friendly staffed"
Cons: "Not the seats I reserved"
Pros: "- The in-flight comfort kit with slippers, lip balm, sleep mask and socks - The complimentary wines and spirits, along with anytime snacks - Courteous and patient flight crew - Good selection of entertainment on the personal screens"
Cons: "- cramped seats (but probably not any smaller than any other airline) - earbud sound quality - boarding process seemed to take a while, but again, probably not any longer than any other airline"
Pros: "The attention to the crew. They were attentive to all orders"
Cons: "The food has too much bread and pasta. The seats recinan well but there is little room"
Pros: "The comfort level was good. I liked the meal in economy and I was able to watch a new movie."
Cons: "The flight left late from Marseille, further diminishing the 4.5 hours I had to catch a flight on another carrier. The flight circled the destination and was then diverted to the second Istanbul airport, where we refueled and waited for another hour. People from the back of the plane rushed to the front of the plane while we were still taxiing on the runway at Ataturk, all to get to the front of the line. The crew was passive the entire time. Upon exiting we were herded onto busses (thus taking away the supposed advantage of those rushing the front). When finally in the terminal, I had to go through customs, purchasing a visa (for a country I did not want to visit at the time), and reclaim checked bags. I proceeded to the other carrier's counter, to be informed that the gate for my flight onward was closed. As the ticket was "promotional" I lost that ticket and had to purchase another - on Turkish! Also had to spend a night in a Turkish hotel, also on my dime."
Pros: "The crew’s positive energy and great service were truly amazing. Kudos Delta!"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and it was a day fast flight."
Cons: "No back of seat entertainment."
Cons: "Turn on the lights before landing graduallyb- noone likes bright fast - too nasty;"
Cons: "The boarding process was awful. The gate agent was extremely rude - was shocked she was representing Delta. There was police on board arresting two passengers and crew was not saying anything."
Pros: "On time, comfortable flight. Great crew and service."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great."
Pros: "short flight"
Cons: "noisy plane. seems like Delta does not maintain their planes very well. flight was delayed, which made it stressful to catch connecting flight at LGA. when we were all on the plane, the pilot states that he apologizes for the wait, since we were waiting a while for take off. he said there was something wrong with the fuel system that had to get fixed but it is ok now. wow, that wasn't the right thing to say. as soon as he said that, the passengers started talking among themselves saying,,,,,,,,,,,,well, i hope it is ok now, because if it is not, we may not get to our destination! he should have rephrased that and simply said that;;;;; sorry for the delay, we were simply going through some maintenance on the plane to make sure everything is all-right, which it is, and we look forward to getting you to your destination in a few minutes! keep it simple without getting into all the details! geeeeeeeeeeeesssssssssssccccccccccchhhhhhhhh!!!!! :("

Pros: "Arrived on time and smooth flight though it was completely full"
Pros: "Great service!"
Cons: "Rude to passengers and then went to the back and loudly complained about other passengers. Very unprofessional."
Cons: "The crew was terrible & rude."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine, boarded on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "A pet peeve of mine is having to check my carry on. They said the overhead bins were all completely full, so I checked my bag at the gate. Come to find out, there were a few spaces left and it wasn't necessary. Really annoying."
Pros: "Boarding was on time; flight departures on time and arrived earlier than expected! Pilot told us exactly what was the status and gave us updates; cabin was well air conditioned; flight attendants were friendly; bags came out very quick! Very nice flight"

Pros: "Arriving in 2 hrs from Orlando to laguardia!"
Cons: "no tv .. I didn't like that we had to use our own electronic device to access the entertainment system."
Pros: "The Gogo Inflight wifi and entertainment did not work for even a minute. I choose flights based on their amenities and this one had offered full WIFI service which swayed me to choose to fly with Delta. I'm not sure who is to blame about this issue but I'm pretty frustrated that it was completely dysfunctional."
Pros: "We were traveling with a 4 month old lap infant, and the crew went out of their way to warm bottles and be friendly in general. The plane was clean and comfortable, and on this leg of our trip the entertainment system actually worked!"
Cons: "The only bad things were those that were totally out of Delta's control: weather delays and absolutely nasty and rude TSA agents who seemed to understand neither the concept of their Pre-Check system (no dedicated lines and no priority) nor the fun of traveling with an infant."
Pros: "No fee to get on an earlier flught"
Cons: "When I tried to rebook online this flight was not an option"
Pros: "Got lucky, and got an upgrade!"

Cons: "The entertainment on the app, bring back the good old tv's on the flight"
Cons: "Delayed and crews attitude. Also being seated next to someone when the plain is half empty"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I have been with Delta for years and their response to me about booking my flight and using the payment method was they are working on it and there is nothing they can do. They would not even offer to hold my flight for 24 hours in case they fixed the issue within that time frame. It was very disappointing."
Pros: "service. Thank you."
Cons: "comfort seats were uncomfortable"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment"
Pros: "The customer service of the middle aged White frmale FA"
Cons: "The seats were small"
Pros: "Clean, modern plane, friendly crew, great service"

Cons: "Seats too narrow with little leg room."

Pros: "Handled the delay professionally with full transparency."
Pros: "the crew was great"
Cons: "reason for delays could have been communicated earlier"
Pros: "Very rude behavior of the staff at the desk. Flight was 7 hours delayed and then canceled. And the staff were not able to give us updates. They were being rude."
Cons: "Ground staff should need more training how to treat passengers. They should show little respect towards their passengers."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled. Still not to Vancouver. Wasted a whole day traveling, about 19 hours due to delay, canceling and try to get rebooked. West Jet does not run on time."
Pros: "A flight is a flight, nothing to write home about - a mode of transportation."
Cons: "Weather and deviated disarrangements tainted our vacation."

Cons: "No in flight entertainment"
Pros: "The crew should serve passengers better and nicer."
Cons: "No more delay."
Cons: "The flight was full and my carry-on had to be checked due to other passengers bringing oversized carry-on. The beverage service did not occur until 10 minutes before landing. Options were limited to water only. The flight was extremely rough and the pilot slammed the plane on landing."
Pros: "Wifi Decent snack More then 1 drink in plastic cup. How about full can TV working"
Cons: "No smile on your staff They look frumpy in their uniforms like nuns"
Cons: "The delays, better coffee brand"
Pros: "Took off on time and it was a smooth flight."
Cons: "The boarding process was unorganized. Once your ready to board you should call out seat numbers starting from the back of the plane to the front and if someone tries to board before their seat has been called they should have to wait. This would eliminate all of the passengers to rush on line in order to get to their seat and to have space in the over head compartment."
Cons: "Sitting at departure gate waiting for two passengers to get kicked off, hard landing"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The waiting area, lateness of the plane"

Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Should consider giving front seat to senior Snacks could have been better keeping in mind the flight time"
Cons: "slight delay in takeoff but otherwise good"
Cons: "Ridiculous baggage policy. Boarded among the first passengers in the last zone group to board the aircraft. All overhead bin space already gone. Sat with my knees up around my chin for whole flight. Very uncomfortable."
Pros: "WestJet staff is always friendly and I like the comedy slant they use on the announcements"
Cons: "Non comfortable cold sensation."
Cons: "Only gave me 20 hours notice, and put me on hold for an hour when I tried to call"
Pros: "The ground staff at the gate kept us informed of the delays to the flight."
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours delayed, apparently because a crew member called in sick at the last minute. Then we had to wait on the runway for the plane to be de-iced. This could have been done while we were waiting for the crew, rather than after boarding."
Cons: "They were not on time"
Cons: "But who knew, that I was going to go to Toronto! I now understand your schemes. You gave a cheap deal, but did not tell me why. Never again Kayak."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Gate change"
Pros: "Ease to board, on time boarding"

Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Food v"

Pros: "Complimentary wine - friendly staff"

Pros: "Flight was for the most part on time"
Cons: "Flight attendant was mean and nasty. She asked me to take my headphones off, to which I complied but shook my head as I took them off. The flight attendant then started shouting at me as to why I shook my head and she got loud and confrontational for no apparent reason. I just looked at her in disbelief without saying a word. I don’t think I will travel WestJet ever again."
Cons: "I was traveling with a piece of artwork and had to check it in oversized luggage, but as I was going through customs, I wasn't allowed in, because the Westjet team couldn't find it. I was escorted to their waiting zone, where I spent 1.5 hours waiting in limbo trying to figure out what I could do. Thank goodness the flight was delayed 80 minutes, because I was finally able to make the flight with 2 minutes to spare after running to the gates. The flight time, 65 minutes. I find it hard to believe the flight got delayed an entire flight. To couple that, when the plane landed in LGA (where I am as I write this), we're stranded on the runway because we don't have clearance to pull into our taxi area."
Cons: "Everyrhing was great"
Cons: "Trip from Toronto to NYC should not be so long. Between boarding getting delayed to finding a gate in NY laguardia, it was just extremely exhausting."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Crazy delays into La Guardia from Toronto, worst flight experience of my life!!!"
Cons: "I had to get searched by crew twice even with the delayed flight it was random even going through all the proper procedures of checking in with my carry on luggage and etc. It was not organized and I got the run around and I just felt like not a valued customer. When boarding the flight I got passed over with beverage and snack. My neighbors next to me looked at me with concern and I just ignored it and didn't want to ask because I was already bothered by my whole experience coming back to New York."
Pros: "As always with Westjet the crew was great, I got upgraded to Plus seating which was a nice surprise."
Cons: "I did experience a technical glitch which didn't let me check in online or with the kiosk due to the system thinking I still owed a flight-change fee from months before. But the woman at the check-in desk fixed things up and upgraded my seat."
Cons: "Lack of access to entertainment without having our own personal device to view and having to download an app to be able to view entertainment"
Pros: "The free drinks and snack"
Cons: "The check in kiosks couldn't read passports well so we had to go check in at counter and the two agents were not adequate because our wait was well over 1/2 hour."
Pros: "Friendly crew, efficient"
Cons: "Delayed boarding."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "If there were no delays"
Cons: "Too freakin cold."
Cons: "No personal entertainment system. Has to use my phone."
Cons: "Seats are narrow and no leg room"
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable. We were allowed to deplane down a staircase off the back of the plane. Very cool."
Pros: "CLT to LGA Airbus expérience was as pleasant as ever. The flight attendant on the regional EMB from LGA to YUL was exceptional."
Cons: "They canceled the flight"
Pros: "Crew was kind and attentive"
Cons: "Flight delayed 3 hours and sat on tarmac in nyc for 45 minutes"
Cons: "The seats could be bigger."

Pros: "Easy check in and Boarding"
Pros: "Uneventful, on time, boarded fast."
Cons: "Just an observation, as soon as the plane stops and the fasten seatbelt sign turns off, the first people to stand are all the older white men on the flight. Never noticed that before but I'm sure it's true on most flights. Check your privilege."
Pros: "Good flight attendants"
Pros: "Pleasant and helpful staff"
Pros: "Once we finally departed the flight timing was excellent."
Cons: "This was the first flight out. Flight was delayed and there was no gate agent that communicated why the flight was delayed. When we were finally able to board, it was NOT done by group number and thus I had to check my bag."
Pros: "Flight attendants were perfect"
Cons: "Beginning about 5.5 hours prior to departure I started getting text and email alerts indicating a sixty minute delay. Then thirty minute delay. Then sixty. Then none. I had to decide whether ir not to believe the alerts, get some things done and change my airport departure time .... or to disregard the alerts. Flight ended up leaving on time. Why the alerts??"
Pros: "On-board staff were professional and kept everything running smoothly and with great communication from the pilot."
Cons: "Claiming baggage at LaGuardia was an hours-long process for everyone on the flight leading to raised tension and lots of tired folks on what was already a late (and delayed flight)."
Pros: "Immigration in Dallas was amazing, so quick and no fuss."
Cons: "If you are running late you might struggle to get from terminal to terminal"
Pros: "We had to wait in the airplane upon arrival in La Guardia NY because wheelchair was not ready."
Pros: "All service once on board was lovely"
Cons: "Surprised by a snarky employee at gate check for my connecting flight home today. I fly with AA nearly every week for work. They grabbed my bag from me and insisted it be checked. I said I didn’t want to pay for checking and that it contained fragile items. It was a little over-stuffed for the scale. When I went to open it and remove some bulky items to put in my purse, they snatched my suitcase away and refused to let me touch my bag. I find this to be completely unacceptable. They had the gall to suggest I go to an airport store, buy a “suitable suitcase,” and take a later flight home. They made a scene and called a supervisor who kindly and promptly let me in my suitcase. The employee then spoke negatively about me loudly to nearby colleagues and refused to make eye contact. After the supervisor let me in my bag, I got on the plane with my suitcase. At one point, this employee made me feel like I was going to be kicked off of my flight; this was so unnecessary and extremely unprofessional. AA - your employees are better than this."
Pros: "The staff did their best to compensate for the 4 1/2 hour departure delay, getting us Panera sandwiches and snacks."
Cons: "The 4 1/2 hour departure delay"
Pros: "Attentive and friendly crew."
Cons: "I would consistency with the flights. The plane I took from NYC to MIA had individual montiors and served a variety of snacks. The flight from MIA to NYC had on pretzels and you had no options for entertainment."
Pros: "Great flight. Nice airplanes and friendly hostesses."
Cons: "Flight attendant called cops on passenger sitting next to me to be escorted off the plane for no reason!"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled we were re-routed and didn't get there until 24hours later."
Pros: "Everything was on time and great."
Cons: "Ever thing was fine."
Pros: "The flight staff had an amazing energy about them especially for 7am. They didn't do anything above or beyond but they extremely pleasant, energetic, and courteous. The pilots also pulled off the one of the smoothest landings ever."
Pros: "Full meal service, friendly and helpful crew, checkin agent went above and beyond to get us checked in even though we were late in getting to the airport."
Cons: "Ancient plane with old, uncomfortable seats and no in-seat entertainment. AA should warn customers when booking these old planes."
Pros: "Just being able get home."
Cons: "After madly rushing to get to the gate, we found out 5 minutes before scheduled boarding time that there would be a 15 minute delay in boarding. After that, we were told there would be another 30 minute delay. Once we were on board and the cabin doors were closed we were told there would be another 55 minute delay. Also, LGA is such a mess these days due to construction and would have been nice to get an email notification beforehand about it. We barely made our outgoing flight!"
Cons: "Both flights, to and from around had to go search for my baggage and on the return flight I even had to go to a different terminal. The service is unacceptable. I will never fly with AA again."
Pros: "On time. Good leg room."
Cons: "Valet flight, i.e. even normal sized carry-on cannot be stowed above the seat We arrived at the gate 20 min before departure, due to TSA delays. But they closed the door and no one was around to even talk to. At least they put us in the next flight.... Still, as we're not checking in any bags, they could have let us in."
Cons: "The flight attendant continued to serve alcohol to passengers (employees of TomKats catering - they screamed it throughout the flight) that were drunk and belligerent. Her poor judgement, and their complete lack of control, made the flight miserable."
Pros: "A short flight that was even shorter because we arrived early. Luggage arrived promptly at Baggage Claim, too. American has flights between Chicago and New York practically every hour, which is very convenient. They might as well have a shuttle. Gate staff and flight attendants friendly and helpful. Love the upgraded individual consoles for the entertainment."
Cons: "No gluten free snacks"
Cons: "Itthe ground staff (red coat agents) at MIA extremely unhelpful and arrogant. I am visually impaired, asked for assistance to check luggage, asked for assistance and was simply tol to go to end of the line at a counter that was at least fifty yards away. Upon my. O planning of the lack of service as simply to go talk to the manager."
Cons: "Baggage claim took extremely long time. It took a while before the baggage crew even became aware of situation."
Cons: "Once again the boarding process was a mess. No clear directions given on when groups should board so everyone from every group bombarded the gate. This slowed down finding overhead bin space and getting seated for everybody. Delayed everything when there was such an easy solution."
Pros: "Crew was very professional and courteous. Our plane landed early which is a plus"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact some of the seats appeared to be dirty , I sat on a book."
Pros: "Volare con American"
Cons: "No snacks offered! No alcohol drinks offered!"
Pros: "The flight board on time, the crew was hospitable and seat was comfortable."
Pros: "Being able to have my own individual entertainment. Staff handled the situation at hand with dealing with everyone's frustration pretty well."
Cons: "That we had to wait for a pilot to show up for the original pilot fidnt show up for work. Then had to deboard just to get back on 15 minutes later as too many people wanted to get off, which delayed take off."
Cons: "Delays, the crew members lied a lot about our delayed flight and they were extremely rude."
Cons: "The pilots did not show up for my flight after my other connecting flight was delayed and a previous fkight had been cancelled."
Pros: "Crew was lovely and kind, esp to babies and their clueless parents. I also like the safety video"
Cons: "Charged airport bag checking price even thought I had checked in on line for half the baggage check in fees. Added $120 to the fare"
Pros: "Food was very good, and plentiful! Wine served with meal. Friendly staff. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Seats are a little narrow"
Pros: "Speedy and friendly service from crew"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Not their fault; French traffic control strike"
Pros: "Wonderful flight attendants. Flight was on time."
Cons: "2 cups of hot tea-norhing else- cost 4 pounds!"
Pros: "Crew were lovely, although they never came back to do a second drink service and didn’t answer call button, so anyone in PE had to walk back through Coach to get a drink. Not great. Food was tasty."
Cons: "Premium Economy barely worth it and not as advertised - no amenity kit, in flight service identical to Coach (except for upgraded meal), seat super uncomfortable with an awkward footrest and a non working headrest."
Pros: "all of the same reasons as noted above"
Pros: "Heathrow terminal 5 is modern, clean and efficient. The BA 787 Dreamliner is the best and the crew were professional all throughout the journey."
Cons: "I would avoid flying into Newark internationally if I have the option next time. Besides from the obvious that the airport is outdated, it is totally understaffed. There were about a staff of four directing international travelers at Passport Control and they were impolite which created a stressful and unwelcoming experience. The second issue I experienced was at baggage claim. Due to some issue I didn’t personally experienced, non-US passport holders experienced major delays entering the country. This resulted in hundreds of luggage that were left unclaimed from a previous flight still on the carousel. There was only two airport staff at this area so people from the BA flight had to take these the bags off the carousel inorder to make space for our flights bags to fit. It’s was totally chaotic and easily avoidable if there were more airport staff managing this area. This international airport is a national embarrassment, and if you’re a foreign traveler, I would highly discourage you from flying into Newark."
Pros: "Most things"
Cons: "Luggage took forever to be delivered in Newark--one of the longest waits I've ever experienced."
Pros: "I liked the plane layout, 2/3/2 across. The stewards were fine given what they have to deal with. I made it back without incident."
Cons: "Seating and service on planes has become so awful that I worry about my safety as an older person. If something happens on a flight like this, where there is no room, stressed stewards and disgruntled passengers, what would happen? If you are tall, there is no room for your legs. Seat my not go back."
Pros: "Food and entertainment selections were very nice"
Cons: "The passenger behind me constantly moving and pushing against my seat"
Pros: "Smooth flight, New airplaine."
Cons: "I had a isle seat and almost everyone passing by would hit my shoulder and I could not rest. The corridors were perhaps too narrow."
Cons: "Not the best airplane food I had, luckily I packed some snacks before leaving Düsseldorf"
Pros: "The flight was very good; however, two hours is barely enough time to make the transfer from Terminal 3 to Terminal 5 znd pass through security. The short transfer time creates unnecessary stress."
Pros: "Webjet made my trip a nightmare!! I will never deal with webjet again!!!"
Cons: "Webjet cause me so many headaches, why do you use them!! You have lost a good customer if I have to use them again!!"
Cons: "Using stairs to de-plane"
Pros: "The flight itself was good and the crew was friendly and attentive"
Cons: "We won't go through Dublin again. The walk from the arrival gate to the maze of bureaucracy ahead was way too long. The airline should have not have that tight a connection knowing all the screening that must be done to board the next flight. We were held up at every entry point, not told what to expect and thus had to prepare for screening on the fly, while hoping our plane would wait for us, which it did and the many people who boarded after us. Entertainment system was slow and non-responsive and my husband's had to be reset to even start to work. One bag left behind, but delivered promptly within days of arrival"
Pros: "Cordial and helpful crew members. Food was excellent."
Cons: "entertainment was not functioning through out the flight."
Pros: "Nice staff who are doing their best with the little they have."
Cons: "The planes are dated. No Wifi. Bad food. Limited entertainment. I was kind of shocked at how lame it was. I will never fly them again, if I can help it."
Cons: "Food was not so Good. Poor quality. Very Little Space for economic flights. Blankets and pillows very poor quality better have your own."
Pros: "Staff, service, punctual everything superb!!!!"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Too cramped and the food was mediocre."
Cons: "Customer service was terrible. The flight was overbooked and everyone was treating me as if it were MY fault the plane was oversold and I didn't have a seat. No apologies, no sympathy. It was as if they were doing me a favor by trying to get me on the flight. I had to wait it 4 long lines to get it taken care of and the people working the floor of the check-in area kept directing me to the wrong places. Purchasing a plane ticket on your airline for a specific should be enough to guarantee a seat on a plane. It's absurd that I spent 900 for a ticket and that doesn't guarantee me that I'll be on the flight."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic and professional, accommodating and very attentive. The seats were comfortable and the flight itself was smooth."
Cons: "The food was not particularly good, I imagine a better class of ticket would improve the food experience. Then again, one does not fly for the food!"
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "Again because I was not allow to choose a better sit or buy an upgrade it was so fustrated!!"
Pros: "I worked for BA for 20 years. I was glad to book them. Ba Turned out to be AA Sat scrunched up between to big people. while in the back there were. 2 people sleeping across 4 seats. outrageous"
Cons: "No seats were allocated when i checked in for return flight. Flight overbooked. No time to change currency or stop for a tea as I had to wait and see if i was going to get a seat I was 3 and 1/2 hours before the flight."
Pros: "It was open skies British air."
Pros: "Service was good as well."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Quick lines."
Cons: "I had two reservations that I had linked and even though there was ample time they wouldn't forward my luggage to my next flight, because I booked them at different times."
Cons: "Lost my bags. Incompetent in nice airport. Crew was rude"
Pros: "The variety of in-flight entertainment options. The headrests. The staff was particularly helpful and courteous."
Cons: "flight was cancelled and they abandoned us"
Pros: "Food) wine, entertainment, spacious, comfy seats (coach). Despite being in tbe middle seat I slept well."
Cons: "Flight attendants are obsessive about rules- they will wake you to put on your seatbelt or bring up your seat 40+ minutes before landing. But very polite."
Pros: "There was nothing to like except for the customer service skills of the cabin supervisor who profusely apologised for BA."
Cons: "At the airport, we were told that we did not have seats together as te flight was oversold. Strange as we had a six year old traveling with us. After much discussion, they gave two seats in the economy plus for me and the child but down graded child's mom to economy. We were told that someone from BA will contact us but it has been 10 days and no call or email. BA doesn't care and is just like all other airlines."
Pros: "Bought food before boarding..."
Cons: "Have to buy food...No more drinks and nacks"
Pros: "Entertainment on iPad."
Cons: "Crew was curt and rude."
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"
Pros: "Nothing stood out good or bad. Average plane. Average service."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "1. BA said I couldn't get a seat before 24 hrs before. Then when I tried to get a seat assignment I was told (by email) to contact Aer Lingus. Aer Lingus said that I should have called before 24 hrs before, and that seats were now in control of the gate (this still 22 hrs before flight time). Total lack of coordination. 2. At check-in I was first told that my bag was too big for carry-on, although BA had accepted it. I shrunk it down. Then I was told it weighed too much at 15 kg. When I asked why BA accepted the weight I was told BA's weight limit was different. 3. Net net, if BA is "arranging" the flight through a code-share it should have responsibility for insuring I am treated like a BA customer. Aer Lingus' customer treatment leads much to be desired."
Pros: "Very incredible from check in, flight and service! Well done"
Pros: "Staff was pleasant."
Cons: "Website didn't work for online checkin. Flight only half full but somehow I was assigned to the coldest seat on the plane with an exit door obstructing legroom. Toilets were out of order and only one was available for most of an eight-hour flight. Airline charged for drinks. Food (chicken stew in a brown gravy?) was repellant. Entertainment choices dated and uninteresting. Luggage lost, with one agent available to slowly help more than 30 people. Luggage missing for over 24 hours. No response from airline. Enough."
Cons: "My flight was changed from Newark to JFK Which cost me more. I called AA to credit me and they Did not"
Pros: "Food and entertainment were good."
Cons: "Abysmal leg room."
Cons: "Ancient plane. Worn and uncomfortable business class seats. iPad for entertainment was a joke - you balance it on the skeletal remains of what had been the video monitor. Cabin crew literally disappeared after "meal" service. I had to "disturb" them from under blankets playing Candy Crush to get a drink during this 7 1/2 hour flight. I usually fly Virgin, but for some reason this was cheaper this time - I will never fly BA/Open Skies again."
Pros: "On time, excellent video and entertainment selectionsall good"
Pros: "Same as above: On-time departure, comfortable cabin, good communication and attentive crew, that's all I want and I got it on this flight!"
Pros: "We waited for 45 minutes for the line to mover at all. She kept claiming that the people at the front of the line had a big problem but without getting any help or moving us to another line. When we got to the front we could see what her problem was. .she scanned the same passport 3 times. Could not do anything right."
