Cons: "I fell sick and my doctor advised against flying. Tried calling Swiss Air and JustFly.com: 6 calls back and forth and 7 hours on hold, no help. Finally got advised on driving to the airport to make the flight change at the Swiss Air counter at O’Hare. The representative told me to bring a note from doctor to switch flights. I did the next day. The same representative looked me in the eye after advising the day before and said there’s nothing she could do. Why make an elderly sick person drive to the airport again if you know already you cannot help??Absolutely terrible experience, no help from the airline or travel agency. Total loss of the full price of the ticket."
Pros: "The food and very professional and friendly service."
Pros: "Crew was very nice, appreciated that they came by with water often"
Cons: "Legroom is very cramped, entertainment options are limited. After one 10-hour flight, you've seen everything you wanted to, so the return flight is a bummer"
Pros: "Food was good ."

Pros: "Great crew who tried to address my broken in seat entertainment."
Cons: "My inseat entertainment could have worked."
Pros: "Great. Very smooth and comfortable!"
Cons: "Same reason as above."
Cons: "The seats in the economy cabin are cramped together. If the person in front of your leans back you are almost trapped in your seat. There is little leg room and the cushioning is not enough for a long distance flight. There is no boarding control. People just line up and get on the plane in any order."
Cons: "Palermo never ready for plane arrival"
Pros: "The service and THE FOOD WERE GOOD !"
Pros: "Staff, food, on board entertainment all very impressive. Great flight."
Pros: "Excellent service all around and great flight timing with delays and awaiting for transfer flights to land"

Pros: "The buttered pretzel was nice, and different."
Cons: "The plane seats are closely spaced. I'm not heavy but am tall, so the row spacing isn't the best. The cattle call boarding is not desirable. Would prefer zone boarding."

Cons: "Cramped in economy"
Cons: "They left my bag in Switzerland"

Pros: "Service was remarkable - food far superior! Will be my airline of choice going overseas."

Pros: "On time and friendly service"

Cons: "Because we missed our flight due to delays in Barcelona we Had to wait more than 4 hours for a next flight. Afterwards we were sitting separate."
Pros: "The staff was helpful and professional and kind. The equipment was new and clean. The flight was on-time and uneventful. I would fly this airline again any day of the week."
Cons: "The entertainment screen was difficult to see when the person in front of me reclined because the screen was not perpendicular to my line of vision. I survived based on the other qualities of the flight."
Pros: "overall very satisfied"
Cons: "no issues"
Pros: "The flight was very good what I didnt like in that when i booked the flight it never said that my ticket wouldnt be able to add lifemiles for star alliance. That was only the reason i chose this airline. When i ask about my lifemiles the answer was that my class of ticket didnt get any lifemile. I felt cheated. You should put it somewhere visibly so the person knows before booking. If i knew it before i never chose this airline."
Pros: "the punctualty"
Cons: "little space betwwen the rows, bad food no entertainment and a very unfreindly crew"
Pros: "The ground and aircraft staff are very professional, friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The aircraft was old, with subpar AC. We would either get freezing or hot and stuffy air. The seats were quite uncomfortable, worse than on recent trips with other airlines (Air Canada, United, Air France). Neither of our entertainment systems worked, despite the best efforts from the crew to reset them. Finally, the food was very disappointing for a European airline."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "This aircraft should be retired long time ago"
Pros: "Swiss Air was the best airline ever!"
Pros: "I have been flying to Greece and back many years now. I have never seen,such comfort in a plane,such great service,so many snacks and meals,and the crew was coming by every 30-45 minutes for water. We were served Swiss chocolate and also the best ice cream I have had in my life. Best flight and best plane I have flown in my life."
Pros: "On time, efficient, good service, professional"
Pros: "El espacio dentro de la cabina y la atención de la tripulación. Me informaron de la inmediatez de mi siguiente conexión"
Pros: "I got business class upgrade, so everything was pretty much awesome. Also, Swiss Air gives you a fun little bag as a souvenir."
Pros: "i got a free upgrade to Business Class... which was super awesome! everything about it was great! the regular Economy Class i had on the way there was perfectly good as well. but Business Class was just the best all around."
Cons: "the ridiculous checking-in / boarding process. seems like showing my passport like once or twice would work. it did on my way there. for some reason it was needed like 17,000 times with ridiculously understaffed lines needing to service several hundred people on the way back. absurd."
Pros: "Great food and drink options."
Cons: "Due to special meals, food was quite delayed. Flight was also delayed so it was very tight to get to my connection."
Pros: "All but the service"
Cons: "Flight attendants seem confused. Service was below par. Took forever to clean food service. Business class had the lights off after dinner at least 40 minutes before we did in Economy. Couldn't get water I requested for a long time."
Pros: "most things were good"
Cons: "the passport check process in Zurich was awful!"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Automated check in machines were horrible and almost caused me to miss my flight"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Small jet for transatlantic didn't allow for being able to walk, stretch and move about much during such a long flight, unlike larger airbus planes or larger Boeing planes. Why do airlines hire chefs then serve lousy food!? First meal was so so while wake up meal was really bad. Was so disappointed in Swiss Air so will not fly with them again. Great service doesn't make up for the noted disappointments. Spending a $2-3 more on food would have helped, but placing us in a long flight in such a small airbus plane just won't do!"
Pros: "Overall good value for the price paid. The service is great and friendly."
Cons: "The entertainment system needs some improvement and upgrade."
Pros: "Great service smooth flight"
Cons: "Wasn't a big fan of the stop over in Daresalaam where we sat in the plane and watched the cleaning crew do theirs work around us"
Pros: "Staff was very friendly."
Cons: "Nothing to say here"
Cons: "my flight was canceled in the last minute,it transferred true turkey where i didn't want to go to for security reasons and landing time issues, i had a chance to buy that ticket for cheaper and get there on time to the turkey airway flight and not come 10 hours early and land at a time i'm expecting I expect compensation for both the price ticket difference as well as for my time wasted, or I will not consider using your airline in the future."
Pros: "Seating and layout was very good. True lie flat seats in business class are a "must have" these days and the Airbus airplane interior was a very good one."
Pros: "Austrian Airlines is the best! Crew, food, drinks, entertainment, and plugins were all provided, and it was all very nice (and delicious food!)."
Cons: "Nothing! Love Austrian Airlines!"

Cons: "long layover before my next flight to Chicago"
Pros: "There was nothing to like. Horible experience will never fligh with Austrian Air again"
Cons: "The flight was long delayed, there was no explanation or any sort of pasenger notification about the delay. When I boarded the overhead luggage was full could not find space to secure my bags. The flight attendant was very rude did not assist me and made me wait. Other people traveling without luggage pushed me to pass by. I was told not very nice things. The flight was overbooked and overall horible experience."
Pros: "Flight was in schedule, friendly staff"
Pros: "There werecseats available at gate area to wabit for plane."
Cons: "Airport overcrowded, checkin at Austrian Airlines horrible - one agent quoated 117 Euro for oversize suitcase when fee was actually 50 Euro. (Note: same suitcase accepted by Lufthansa without extra charge. Security check also excessive and bureaucratic without giving sense of better safety."
Pros: "Movie selection was good."
Cons: "I could not reserve seats via Kayak, through whom the flight was booked. I paid extra for seat reservations, about $30 for a plain economy seats, to Austrian Airlines."
Pros: "On time and amazing flight crew! SO attentive and personal...seemed to really enjoy their job."
Cons: "Delayed longer than the flight time"
Cons: "They lost my bag and refused to deliver it to my house once it was found. It is still at the airport"

Pros: "clean airplane. staff friendly and helpful. good movie selection"
Cons: "austrian and lufthansa have the worst seats in the industry. good for seating for about 30 minutes ONLY. so tough that make the trip feel even longer. a charger is needed in economy (at least one every two seats). wifi has not made it to this long haul flight yet."
Pros: "We ended up being rebooked from Austria near to Egyptian air on route to Cairo. This was the best thing that could’ve happened as Austrian air was inferior. Egyptian error on the other hand had very gracious staff, very comfortable seating, and while the food was average it was better than Austrian air"
Cons: "We ended up being rebooked from Austria near to Egyptian air on route to Cairo. This was the best thing that could’ve happened as Austrian air was inferior. Egyptian error on the other hand had very gracious staff, very comfortable seating, and while the food was average it was better than Austrian air"
Pros: "Organized orderly boarding. Food was snack only. Flight crew was pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "That is was on time!"
Cons: "That they charge you for luggage when international flight accepts one bag per person!!! this is Nickle and diming people."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for 2 hours because a crew member did not have the proper paperwork. This is incompetence. The trip was long enough w/o adding another two hours due to poor planning. This was completely preventable."
Pros: "Speaking of friendly sky. Great!"
Pros: "Great experience, friendly crew!"
Cons: "I was at the back of the plane with the constant cold air breeze, it was impossible to avoid!. I caught heavy cold and still recovering!"
Pros: "People at the desk didn't know or don't wanna say much why we have no plane"
Cons: "I arrived at Vienna on time but to Skopje we had no plans and we hade to wait till 13:40 to board"
Pros: "My flight was lovely. I loved the professionalism & politeness of the crew. I also loved the food - I really appreciated the fact that I could order a gluten free vegetarian meal for this flight."
Pros: "Left on time, exit row seats and a simple, yet adequate meal. The beverage cart came by a few times."
Cons: "No tv, maps or entertainment at all."
Pros: "The meal was ok The airplane was clean"
Cons: "Seats were very nerow .No help from the crew . Flight delayed"
Pros: "I fly this route on Austrian 5 times a year, and I nearly always choose Austrian because it hast the overall best 'package' - a comfortable plane with excellent sleeping seats in business class, the best airline food in the world from Do & Co, the nicest staff that really cares about your well being and the quickest connection between Bangkok and Vienna."
Cons: "The entertainment program is a bit slim, to my taste - but I'm not a big consumer of inflight movies, as I prefer to get more sleep when I fly. When compared to the entertainment program on Singapore Airlines, for example, Austrian's own can't really compete."
Pros: "Drinks were included"
Cons: "No entertainment available not even to pay for. Wifi is overpriced"
Cons: "We flew from TLV to Skopje via Vienna. None of the flight were on time and there was zero communication about the flight status. We arrived to the gate to start the boarding and they just told us wait here for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes we were asked to wait another 20 minutes. Only when we missed the take off time by 10 minutes they bothered to update us and inform us that the flight is being delayed in 2 hours."
Pros: "We arrived on time"
Cons: "We had to stand around for a long time waiting for a bus to take us to the plane. The bus was horribly crowded. Then we arrived at the plane and had to walk up the stairs to get on. There was no food served---just a cracker and some juice or water. After we arrived in Paris we waited a long time for the baggage to arrive."
Pros: "Nice staff. efficient."
Pros: "Punctuality and amenities on boatd"
Pros: "Service was great and the flight on time."
Pros: "They lost my baggage and nobody cares.They charging good money for extra bags but they have only sorry for they mistake. If you plan your important trip to Europe please don't use this company,so you can avoid unpleasant experience."
Pros: "The service was good, everyone from the staff extremely friendly and overall the flight was very quick."
Pros: "that everything was in order - alles in ordnung, without much fuss. short flight, no time to get dissapointments, but I did not expect some anyway."

Pros: "The Crew was perfekt The Wheelchaire Service was also perfekt Food tasted good"
Cons: "The only trouble was 1:15 h delay ,but this depended on the weathersituation how I believe!"
Pros: "The staff was very pleasant"
Cons: "Very crowded plane!"
Cons: "The website is a horror, particularly from an iPad. Trying to web checkin was an arduous battle. Obviously the consumer is the least important factor in the lack of managing the product. I avoid Austrian for that simple reason. Crew polite. Pilot informative."
Pros: "The crew worked so hard and were always ready to do more for any problem that arose, be it, mothers with babies, the elderly and infirm, the less than gracious occasional passenger, or younger children. The entertaining things on the individual screens also helped make the long periods of sitting more manageable for young and old."
Cons: "I didn't like how the passengers in general, left the cabin of the plane in such a mess! The crew came through several times for refuse, so I couldn't understand. Leaving pillows and blankets should be the only thing to clear out. Maybe a note on the TV screen could say, "a tidy plane helps flights be on time :-)""
Pros: "It was the best flight I've had and the best Pilot. Thank you, Corina Pauta"
Flights have been completely changed with another airlines just a few hours before departure. New trip had a short connection time between flights and separate check-ins were required. The first flight was a bit delayed, so we had to pick up our luggage after the first flight, run to another terminal check in and drop off baggage again. We almost missed the second flight. That was painful!!!
Nothing really special. But it was a quick 2.5 hour fli
Frankfurt airport and organization sucks.
Usually United/Lufthansa is a wonderful airline for my family and I to use. But this trip the crew were horrible and indifferent. Had a couple sitting beside me that where drunk even before they boarded. The crew continued to serve them alcohol knowing this. The lady ended up spilling a whole beer all over me staining my shirt, slacks and socks, soaking me, the seat and the floor. The flight crew couldn’t have cared less. They didn’t even bother to come look or clean up the area. I had to go myself and ask for something to clean up te mess with. Upon asking I was treated like I was bothering them and told to just go to the bathroom and grab a handful of napkins. Absolutely unacceptable. They would even let me change seats to have a dry seat. I had even payed for an upgrade to for legroom on this long flight and we all know that is NOT CHEAP. The final straw was the fact that the crew spen most of their time in the galley in the back. EVERYONE was told if we wanted anything we had to get up and come to the back. They were not even answering the call lights. Horrible, horrible service and attitude from Lufthansa crew members. Thankfully, the dry cleaners will be able to clean my suit….. at MY COST.
Flight was overbooked. Crew did a great job but passengers weren’t nice and really not patient. Flying in these times is not the best idea tbh.
Cons: "50 min. delay for absolutely nothing. No proper gate available. Only one bus had to serve all passengers from terminal to aircraft. Lufthansa should not operate as a budget airline."
Cons: "Boarding process and food"
Pros: "Clean and comfortable airplane"
Cons: "Entertainment wasn’t working the entire flight"
Pros: "The new Airbus was a very cool aircraft."
Cons: "Boarding process is really disorganized."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The proximity of the arriving and departing gates"
Cons: "Nothing to add?"
Pros: "Crew and flight were great. overall excellent experience."
Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."
Pros: "The crew here was Much, much friendlier! They were smiling, joking, and happy. The stewardess even directed me to a free isle seat so I wouldn't have to sit in the middle where it was a bit more cramped. I wish my first experience with Lufthansa; they could have had a loyal customer since I will ve flying to Bulgaria 2 times a year in the next 6 years."
Cons: "The bus to get to the plane was very cramped."
Pros: "It’s always a pleasure, easy and organized to fly with you. I have been using Lufthansa for the last 3 years, every time I must fly because of the quality of service and of its crew."
Pros: "Crew looked after me after a family took up a whole row including my designated seat. I need up with the back row to myself so could put my feet up & chill after a less than pleasant 5+ hours wait at Munich!"
Cons: "Boarding was a free for all. My seat was near the front of the plane but the crew directed me to enter at the back of the plane. There were people entering from both the front and the back, meaning people were stuck trying to get past each other in the tight aisle. It was difficult to find space in the overhead compartments for carryon luggage due to people bringing too much stuff - the crew should have stepped in and helped. The food was a bad chicken sandwich with condiments that I could not eat."
Pros: "Everything especially the food and the friendly stewardesses!N"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. There was not enough space for my carry-on luggage so they had to take it in the front."
Pros: "The staff and food were exceptional!"
Pros: "I managed to get a seat in economy class upstairs on the Airbus A380-800, next to the window. Each window seat has a locker to stow all your in-flight stuff in and there is lots of legroom. I was impressed - that's saying a lot for a Boeing-lover. Crew was very attentive and always available."
Cons: "Boarding could have been better organized."
Pros: "I did get my meal request for the 2nd leg."
Pros: "The staff is on point classy folks the stewardess, are very nice and and prompt."
Cons: "The food is terrible extremely bland and no flavor. Needs to maybe be revamped"
Cons: "They Changed the terminal last minute and i miss the flight ! horrible experience i needed to pay new tickets 300$ ! i will never going to book or recommend to anyone to fly with your company.."
Cons: "The chicken was too spicy & hot for general public. You should take lessons from Swiss Air... food was delicious!"
Pros: "Munich airport is very well organized."
Cons: "We had reserved our seats ahead of time but as we were boarding we were told that instead of sitting on row 4, we should seat at a row at the back of the plane. We were not notified ahead of time or or given an option. Flight attendants were refusing to help passengers and were actually rude to people who needed help to find a place for their luggage. Honestly, I didn’t expect this from Lufthansa and am very disappointed."
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Seats were too tight and close together,I think for long flights the leg room should be more even in economy class."
Pros: "United was operating the flight. They asked for 200 to assign me seat next to the path. I found out in the plane after i got to my middle seat that they gave a good front seat close to the path to somebody who was stand by..... They also stated that they can not check my nags to Sofia since they DO NOT FLY TO SOFIA..."
Cons: "United was operating the flight. They asked for 200 to assign me seat next to the path.

Pros: "Attendants were pleasant"
Cons: "We were delayed on the tarmac for an hour and a half"
Pros: "The crew was very polite!"
Cons: "It felt really tight."
Pros: "Didn't try the food."
Cons: "Nothing out of the ordinary regarding the flight itself. The gate was changed twice, which was inconvenient. Not much leg room or no adjustable pillows on the seats."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and provided constant updates while the flight was delayed multiple times."
Cons: "It is not a good idea to serve dinner at 1am in the evening when people are falling asleep. It would have been a better idea to serve lunch vs dinner"
Pros: "everything on time on the right place with the right numbers ... perfect ;)"
Cons: "seats on LH435 from ORD to MUC too small and tight"
Pros: "My first flight overseas was wonderful. Almost never felt any turbulence and the crew was so friendly and courteous."
Cons: "Cramped seats in economy. Next time we'll definitely upgrade for more leg room."
Pros: "My parents had a wonderful experience. Very professional and courteous!"
Pros: "On time and a safe flight."
Cons: "Flying ECONOMY appears to be getting worse as time goes on. I have flown Lufthansa before and was very pleased .... but lunches/dinners served with cold wet bread leaves a lot to be desired. Also, when the individual in font of you reclines their seat, it becomes almost impossible to eat your meal. Overall still better than other airlines ... but clear that economy seating is like sitting in the back of the boat with little regard for the passenger."
Pros: "Courteous and professional."
Cons: "The seat that I paid for was taken from me by Lufthansa without explanation or a refund."
Cons: "seats were old and uncofmortable. i asked for coffee which they totally forgot to bring me and the crew was just generally mean and very dismissive. no food at all - could have served a breakfast sandwich or something no entertainment or charging docks. ."
Pros: "On time and friendly crew"
Pros: "We are extremely grateful to Lufthansa and Munich airport administration for organization of the transfer between connected flights wit a short connection time. We have had only 40 minutes transfer time between flights from Budapest and to Washington DC, and started to worry that we may not make it since the boarding was in the opposite part of the waste airport. So, it was a great relief when we saw the airport representative meeting us at the exit from Budapest plane to lead toward the Washington DC flight gate. In 30 minutes we were in our plane to continue flight to the US. Thank you so much!"
Cons: "1 hour delay in departure from Lisbon"
Cons: "Food service was pay only on a 3.5 hour flight. This meant there was a good cart blocking the aisle THE ENTIRE FLIGHT! Nobody could get by to use the bathroom or to walk around. There was almost always two people in each direction blocked by the cart. From what I could observe, the cart wasn’t even stocked with the items people were ordering, as a flight attendant was CONSTANTLY running back and forth to the galley to get items that weren’t on the cart! The setup of this food service was HORRIFIC even for me who didn’t order anything. They never even were able to take orders from everyone- never even asked if I wanted anything. I don’t think I will fly British Airways again."
Pros: "Crew was super nice"
Cons: "Don’t pack people in like sardines! Our seats were so close it was in humane! Also we were in the back of the plane and it was uncomfortably hot! Why are there no individual a/c blowers over each seat!! Because of the heat and the cramped seats had to keep getting up and standing in the back because I was so claustrophobic!! Miserable, miserable, miserable!!!"
Pros: "Good seats and smooth flight"
Cons: "No free snacks"
Cons: "Please provide enough blankets. The canin was cold!!!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Long delays, started in Las Vegas all the way thru to Athens"
Pros: "Very comfy business class. Had a very good sleep."
Cons: "When queuing for boarding, some other classes queued on the the same line which made the queue very long. However there was no staff checking."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "On a 4 hour flight Offer snacks and water without charge. Children were screaming the entire flight. The crew stood in the back reading magazines instead of checking if people needed more drinks."
Cons: "Ordered special meal, did not get it so did not eat. Cabin crew unfriendly. Old aircraft so could not hear the announcements. Screen did not work. Bags took ages to come out despite being priority. BA has definitely gone downhill."
Pros: "Seats were nice"
Cons: "Complementary water... It was a decently long fly not to offer anything."
Pros: "The airport is nice"
Cons: "But they didn’t let me in because I didn’t show up for the first flight"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Inadequate frequency and quality of service by flight attendants, mediocre food, small portions at dinner service, poor responsiveness of seat controls, incredibly poor resolution and small sized video screen in business class. Nothing but candy and pretzels available for snacks between the long time between meal services. No separate jetway for first and business class passengers. Several hour delayed takeoff after boarding due to multiple maintenance issues and equipment failures."
Pros: "Crew was great. Accommodating and welcoming."
Cons: "Food quality could have been better. Snack was very poor before landing."
Pros: "When I left my wallet behind in my seat, it was returned quickly with everything intact. This was most likely due to quick action by the Bulgarian security personnel, but whoever did it, I am very grateful!"
Cons: "The cart delivering drinks was not capable of providing a simple glass of ordinary water. I waited 20-30 minutes for a small plastic glass to arrive. The effort to sell their expensive bottled water instead was obvious. Not very customer friendly."
Pros: "Priority boarding and bulkhead seating for family travelling with infant."
Cons: "My 'infant on lap' (23 months old) was too big for the airline-provided seat (weight limit 12.5kg, and he weighed 13kg)."
Pros: "Not much. They got us there."
Cons: "Flight was late. London heathrow is such a pain. You have to ride a bus between terminals. You have to sit in the A terminal area waiting for your gate then hustle to your gate. The plane was old. The British crew was less than friendly. Everything on the flight costs. Couldn’t even get water for free."
Pros: "Entertainment and amount of food and drinks served was adequate"
Cons: "3 different delays totalling over 2 hours then sat on the plan waiting to take off for another 30+ min with no regard to connecting flights, passenger confort, etc"
Pros: "Boarding. Food."
Cons: "My in flight entertainment was broken and that us quite a disadvantage on a 12 hour flight. I was told it was because the airplane was "very old" which whilst it may be true it is not something I particularly want to hear. I was also told that as the flight was full I could only move seats if someone wanted to swap. I'm not sure if the flight attendant was expecting me to stand up and make a public request?!"
Cons: "Cramped seats. Hot and sweaty. Poor food quality. Stingy on beverages"
Pros: "Food good! Crew friendly"
Cons: "Food was great and plentiful! The crew were friendly and helpful. Seats were compact. But that’s usual for airlines. Plan extra time for customs...aaaaugh!!!! Two hours! I’ve never had to wait that long before."
Pros: "Service was excellent"
Cons: "Food was served cold. They came back later and offered it hot, but it was way later."
Pros: "Staff were great, classy even, making the journey pleasant"
Cons: "On checking in I wasn’t given the option to add a bag, meaning I had to pay over double the rate at the airport. Trying to add one online or on the app failed. Calling the support helpline was a waste of time and money; spending 10mins on hold before being told there was nothing to be done."
Pros: "The efficiency of every sing step from booking to boarding"
Cons: "The type of the people flew with me -loud and misbehaving. Crew couldn't do anything."
Pros: "Crew were good, the food was mediocre when they served lunch - but then there was nothing more to eat until nearly the end of a 9 hour flight, by which time it was past 10.30pm back in London. At that point, all that was offered was half a sandwich and a biscuit."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment didn't work at first, and then when it started, kept on threatening to shut itself down every time I moved. The selection was ok but nothing compared to other airlines. The screen was tiny and low resolution. The seats were old - the same ones as when BA introduced their premium economy back in 2000. The aircraft was desperately in need of a refresh."
Pros: "cheaper pricing"
Cons: "no mention of visa entry to US when I booked my trip !! caused me all sorts of problems .... you must make double and triple check that when booking a ticket to a country that requires a visa it is a 'click to accept' thanks"
Pros: "The staff was great, friendly, helpful and professional."
Cons: "I thought the food lacked imagination, was skimpy and too hot. I burned my mouth several times. I really do not like having to pay for a booked seat. I have special needs at my age and so booking early is how I typically make sure I can access the bathrooms easily without climbing over sleeping passengers. I picked flight for the price, but in the end I should have stuck with Delta, KLM and Air France and got the extra miles as with seat bookings and only one bag allowance, what I ended up paying did not make it worth it. Oh well, live and learn. Seats were tight, anyone bigger than me would have really struggled."
Pros: "The seats were surprisingly comfortable."
Cons: "The service was kinda rude."
Pros: "British AIT flight attendants are the nicest"
Cons: "The metal entertainment boxes where your feet go- io am 183cm and the boxes don’t allow me to stretch my legs"
Pros: "Leg room was good. Direct flight to Europe."
Cons: "Old plane. Poor seat entertainment - TV was terribly old and outdated. No plugins at the seats. Seats were smaller than most economy seats. Food was pretty poor, and drinks were very small and not enough for a 10hour flight. Expected A LOT more from British Airways. This flight was poorer standard than many low cost flights. We have done a lot of traveling overseas and this was one of the worse flights."
Pros: "The flight was great. Business class is the way to go if it’s in your budget. However, the British Airways photos of business class does not quite reflect reality. It’s just a regular seat with more leg room."
Pros: "Food was actually quite good"
Cons: "Issues with online purchase of extra baggage"
Pros: "The coffee was not free, but I had to purchase it. It was the worst coffee I have ever been served. No tadte, undrinkable, really. But, when I complsined, I was given a real coffee from business class at no charge. That was very nice!"
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "THEY CHARGE FOR ALL DRINKS APART FROM WATER Tight leg room"
Cons: "We had to cancel flight due to Hurricane Irma change of flights from London. BA refused to let us rebook or change flight. Poor poor customer service! I will never fly BA again!!"
Pros: "Great crew who managed brilliantly under the circumstances...."
Cons: "The aircraft was unbearably hot - crew member in rear economy member said it was 42 degrees at one point. Took almost 2 hours to get the back of the plane (where I was sitting) down to 27 degrees. Understand that temperature can only be reduced in small increments but why was the temperature on board allowed to get to 42 degrees prior to boarding?? The crew were brilliant, and hats off to them for working in such difficult conditions."
Cons: "Boarding started 10-15 minutes before the announced boarding time and I did not hear an announcement for that. Seats are very uncomfortable, they have no lumbar support and my lower back still hurts from the three hours on the plane. 2 toilets for all economy class passengers are not enough - there was a line most of the time. Water for purchase???Are you kidding me? That was the worst surprise! What a shame, British Airways! Now you are one of the inhumane airlines! I will tell THE WORLD about that ridiculous fact! And not even extra small packages of snacks?! Now my favorite airline becomes Delta. There was no entertainment of any kind. There were no air vents above our seats (row 20 in that Airbus) and it got really hot before we were airborne."
Pros: "The boarding was very good and the crew was very nice"
Cons: "There certainly should have been a snack on this longer flight"
Cons: "When we went to check in on 6/30, the website said all legs of our reservation have been flown. We had to call British Airways and then the booking company (Webjet) to finally get things sorted out. British Airways counted our flight from JFK to CDG as a "no show" but in reality, we had just missed our connecting flight because of so many delays at JFK. We had received no notification from Webjet or British Airways of these changes and were told that our taxes were refunded for the return tickets."
Pros: "I was blocked and was not given permission to choose a sit when checking-in"
Pros: "Well organized, taken care of for connecting flight when plane was delayed 2 hours."
Cons: "HEATHROW IS A NIGHTMARE, Not the fault of BA"
Cons: "Seats on the flight London to Barcelona weren't as comfortable but it's not fair as it's just the model of airplane. Although modern seats just weren't that good to try catch some sleep."
Cons: "I don't know they farmed my flight out to another airline"
Cons: "Since 1st flight was extremely delayed due to stupidity of staff unable to get head count of passengers, the BA system rebooked my 2nd flight which should hve not happened because I made it to my original flight prior to gate closing AND that flight was delayed anyways so I made it in plenty of time to make it yet my seat was taken from me and then boarding started. And I have to state WHY this BA flight was delayed - because they "had problem getting the catering on board" thus missed runway time. Anyways, since I was rebooked I went to my new gate, waited many hours to hve another issue, where they couldnt find my new seat in system and changed, and again flight was delayed this time due to having a flat tire... Common BA, seems your quality dropped 99%."
Cons: "luggage was on another flight - i got my luggage 24 hours later"
Pros: "exelant crew ans service"
Cons: "overprice for extra bag"
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "Seat was exactly the same as coach. My vegan meal consisted of 2 tiny plates of fruit and a soggy, egg-free omelet with unflavored tofu and no salt. Disgusting. Staff was snobbish and full of it. No on-board entertainment, no wifi, no reading material except the magazine. Oh they did try to sell me duty free. AVOID."
Cons: "The plane is not comfortable. Especially the number of toilets is very small: only 1 (ONE) on each side in the touristic part. And it is on the flight London-Las Vegas (10 hours)! One has to go for taking some drink himself. Not enough drinking was suggested during the flight. The screen is very bad. No real choice of movies."
Cons: "Delay. Poor food."
Pros: "That BAA have WiFi on the plan and the flight back did not even have USB charger . In new York at at the BAA terminal they only have 30 min worth of wifi"
Cons: "The service . In general it can be better"
Pros: "Clean comfortable flight, safe. Nice crew."
Cons: "Better snacks!!! More room between seats!!!"
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Seats are small"
Cons: "Nothing. It was it is."
Pros: "The plane had lots of leg room."
Cons: "Punctuality. The plane left the gate more than 30 minutes after scheduled departure time."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Flights should not be delayed by over an hour."
Pros: "Nothing special. It was an ordinary flight"
Cons: "More leg room and cushioned armrests"
Cons: "Flight carry on baggage mandatory green tag check in. Very small flight. green tag Baggage being asked to be taken from b baggage carousels after waiting for a while. At baggage carousels the baggage arrival delayed by 30 mins. Flight had rough landing"
Cons: "Gotta figure something out to make boarding simpler. Need to use the two lanes to keep the flow moving. Once group 1 boards, group 3 should line up there. Once group 2 boards, group 4 should line up there, etc."
Cons: "The flight leaving houston was delayed by over an hour due to some issue with the flight crew ( we had to wait for another captain to show up ). By the time we got back to Toronto and thru security it was 1a.m. and I had to wait until later in the morning for public transit to get me home."
Pros: "Loved the entertainment on the plane with directv."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable at all. My back was aching by the end of the flight. The power outlet under the seat would have been great, had it been working."
Pros: "I was able to find a space for my luggage in the overhead compartment"
Cons: "Seat outlets didn’t work. Flight attendant on the PA didn’t know what city we were flying to. Poor communication regarding reason for flight delay Flight attendant making snarking comments about if we get to their seats we do if we don’t we don’t."
Pros: "I did not like anything abut the trip. I guess if I have to come up with something good it could be that the trip ended without physical death... emotional and psychological death, to be sure, but not physical."
Cons: "The outrageous, unconscionable, customer unfriendly lack of leg room, general torture-like comfort levels of the seating, surly airline employees, vomit comet style landing, and spending enough time driving around the tarmac we probably could have just drove the plane there, skipping flying all together."
Pros: "Just a great flight and service. Super happy for getting home early!"
Cons: "Unclear indication and mediocre service to register for the flight and to load our luggage"
Cons: "Flight attandents felt rude."
Cons: "My entertainment console didn’t work and I was unable to purchase movies/direct tv"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed and there was a really long line of passengers trying to switch connecting flights. There were two women working at the counter. One of their shifts was over. She called her manager and said she was willing to work later to handle the crowd, but the manager does not want to pay overtime so she was told to leave. So one woman was left to handle the massive line all by herself. I stood in line over two hours. I believe if someone is willing to help out that would have been the best solution."
Pros: "Received a text that the flight from Denver to Frankfurt is delayed 2 hours."
Cons: "Delay notification message did suggest calling the airlines to make change nor stating that I'll miss my connection in Frankfurt. I assumed I'll be missing it so I called Lufthansa to make changes. Their attempts to help took too much time, they did not look tat the trip from origination to provide best alternatives until I arrived to airport in Las Vegas to find out that again they had to change the booking and issue a new ticket. This took more than two hours. Had I not was preemptive I would have been stuck in Frankfort for an extra day."
Pros: "Reasonably helpful counter staff that let me still board 10 mins before takeoff"
Pros: "Although the flight was delayed, we got into an earlier flight which was great"
Pros: "The crew was very professional and caring."
Pros: "I slept the whole way."
Pros: "I enjoyed the upgrade in my seating"
Pros: "Excellent service from crew during flight. Luggage was lost and can not be found"
Cons: "Luggage was lost and cannot be found today is day 7 in Kiev Ukraine and no details about my luggage."
Pros: "Some of the United reps in Chicago were helpful"
Cons: "The united representative at LAS had no interest in customer service. This delay cost my family a lot of inconvenience. In short my wife spent her 50th birthday waiting in an airport with no compensation from united"
Pros: "Departed on time and arrived early."
Cons: "Ticket check in employee was extremely rude. Put me on stand by for the next flight even though they were still letting people onto my original flight."
Cons: "United changed their luggage policy and because I booked through priceline/kayak I was not made aware of this new policy. Basic economy only allows you to bring a personal item on the plane, YOU CANNOT HAVE A CARRYON ITEM. Therefore they charge $25 to check your carry on bag and my flight then became more expensive than a different flight. Poor dissemination of information."
Pros: "Friendly atmosphere, comfortable, friendly"
Pros: "Illy coffee & Tapas"
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Staff were courteous and I greatly appreciate not being charged for a beverage!!!"
Cons: "The Denver airport was chaotic and the trains were totally messed up!!"
Pros: "While we were stuck at the airport they gave us soda and snacks"
Cons: "After all that they couldn't even give us tv to watch complimentary. I would say that the 8 times I've flown united the flights been delayed at least 5."
Pros: "Excellent service. I love Kayak is the best!"
Cons: "To many hours delayed"
Pros: "Efficient boarding and on time departure."
Cons: "The first leg of my flight, the Madison to Chicago portion, the flight attendant was rude and most unhelpful. We were flying a smaller play and my carry on would not fit in the small overhead compartments. When I informed him of this, and let him know I was getting off the plane to have my bag stowed he was very rude. When I returned back to my seat he made a snide comment to me ask well. The other 3 flights were great, flight attendants were great and no concerns or complaints."
Pros: "One of the flight attendants was very customer-friendly. I had asked for a meal and they had a long, in drink service so it took awhile for her to come back to me. She didn't forget and she gave it to me at a discount so I was very happy about that as well."
Pros: "When i did my online check in, i just found out that i was separated with my companion. One hour before boarding opens i took the chance to request in the boarding desk if we could be seated together, i spoke with Ms. Nan, she said she'll do her best. Diting boarding time as soon as i was sat, she came approach me and said she had a seat for us together. I was so greatful to Ms. Nan. That is why I love united so much."
Cons: "Did not get a receipt/mail of booking, had to call to make sure the flight was actually booked."
Pros: "Got there on time, grabbed a seat from the counter, walked on the plane, sat down and 44 mins later I was in LA. Quick and easy"
Pros: "I was feeling sick and the attendant really went out f their way to make me feel at ease"
Cons: "I wish there was better edible snacks"
Cons: "My mother Vickie is hearing impaired. When her fist flight from Las Vegas to San Francisco changed terminals, she missed her flight. Not exactly something she would have been able to personally hear. Being that it was her 2nd time flying, ever, she didn't know to look for it until it was too late. Now her connecting flight from San Francisco to Anchorage has been delays to just shy of an hour. I wake up at 4am and thus is a HUGE burden on me as I'm a Dept Director at a Hospital and I need to be on my game at all times while at work."
Pros: "The crew did the best they could under the circumstances"
Cons: "That it took 13 hours for a 'non-stop' to get from LV to Newark"
