Still, I would book another flight with Qatar airways for their efforts and overall good service."
Cons: "It would have been nice if Qatar Airlines also provided Priority Boarding for everyone on the flight that got delayed as there was a long line just to get to the boarding area."
Pros: "The cabin crew, the cabin crew, the cabin crew. Enough said. They are thoroughly trained and exhibited unparalleled professionalism"

Pros: "Had the best flight experience of my life. Comfort, food & especially service was excellent."

Cons: "Seats are crammed like US airlines. Not much leg room. But still far better than flying any US airline."
Pros: "Our meals were luke warm at best while the bread was still semi frozen. Food quality has always been low on Qatar flights but this time was the absolute worst. I fly with Qatar for work everything 4 months and that's solely due to convenience."
Cons: "We could not watch anything as my wife and my screen did not work."
Pros: "Crew were nice as always and the toilets were clean."
Cons: "Movie selection wasn't that great and food was disappointing. My meal was cold and unappetizing. Vegetarian food can be delicious and vegetarian meals used to be good in QA. I've noticed it declining in quality over the past year. Bread is always cold and hard and vegetables are sometimes tasteless. I also never get good dessert :( luckily, the cabin crew giving out food still had some other food I could eat so I just gave back my special meal which was cold and unappetizing."

Cons: "Attendants were skiving at the back"
Pros: "Seat arrangements excellent Crews nice"
Cons: "Very disappointed about quality and frequently of food offered"

Pros: "The entertainment and food was great. The service as well. They are very attentive to any request."
Cons: "When it was time to leave Doha, Qatar there was a massive delay which caused us to be late for any upcoming transfer in BKK. That told me that my would be delivered the next day. I am currently trying to figure out whether they have my bags or not."
Cons: "The luggage management system was terrible. We had to wait 2 extra hours for a single carry-on that we had to check in before our 15 hour flight. After a 24 hour journey, it is really inconsiderate to add extra hours to the journey. For luggage, I would give a 1, very poor rating for Qatar Air."
Pros: "Qatar Airways is a nice airline and it's obvious they work on making your flight a pleasant experience with a lot of food, entertainment, etc"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 hours upon initially arriving to the airport. While it was important for me to be there when I found out this information because I needed to reschedule my connecting flightso due to the delay, this should not be required. Qatar Airways, knew the flight was going to be delayed at least 10 hours before they announced it. They should have already began the process of rescheduling connecting flights and figuring out problems before passengers arrive to the airport. I probably spent 45 minutes at the ticket counter working things out."
Pros: "Fast boarding and off boarding"
Cons: "Crew wasn’t as attentive. While my first flight (I had a layover) seemed extra attention and care was put into the cleanliness and order due to Covid, second flight seemed to be a little overcrowded."

Pros: "I apreciated how well informed he captain kept us. There were several delays but she communicated freely and helped us to feel safe."
Pros: "There was plenty of space under the seat in front of me for my personal items."
Cons: "There was an issue with a part on the plane so the flight was delayed so it could get fixed before takeoff. That is not a big deal, I'd rather it be safe than on time. But the way crew and staff handled it was pretty unprofessional. No one seemed to know what was going on or what to do."
Cons: "Best option across the pond, amazing upgrade prices"
Pros: "Inflight entertainment was great. Movies, games, moving map. Best I’ve ever seen in main cabin for free."

Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "El cumplimiento de vuelos"
Pros: "The pilot and the stewardess were very polite."

Cons: "The entertainment system & WiFi were out. Wasn’t able to charge my phone either as the outlets weren’t functioning properly."

Pros: "Leg room was descent"
Cons: "Excessive delays. Was scheduled to leave CLT at 3:21 PM, then rescheduled to depart at 423; then waited on the tarmac to take off for about 45 mins total; didn't arrive in NYC until around 718 PM; very long day with Delta Airlines."
Pros: "Flight was on time and even landed early. Boarding was seamless with bag tag. Seats were comfy. Crew was professional."
Cons: "A drink with no napkins? I know airlines need to cut costs but what if I spilled my drink or want to wipe my hands after eating pretzels Delta? You can still provide napkins."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for boarding, then delayed for take-off, then circled LaGuardia for an hour, diverted to JFK. They indicated weather, but JFK is 9.6 miles away... so weather really??!!"

Fortunately, I was able to get a seat on the 3:30 flight (my original flight was scheduled for 10:45am). When I arrived at my destination I was exhausted from spending all day in the airport!"
Pros: "There is no rating selection for not applicable under entertainment, unless your asking about watching other passengers."

Pros: "great boarding crew for an early morning flight."
Pros: "Free upgrade to Economy Plus"
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour"
Cons: "My mother, Linda Thompson, has a progressive neuromuscular disorder, Dystonia. Along with this condition, stress can bring on non-epileptic seizures. My mother has had to endure one of these seizures due to the stress that this incident had put her through. As my mother's power of attorney, I am helping her vocalize this incident that she has experienced. The image below shows the spot where she was left, in the Atlanta airport, in her wheelchair. Delta airlines says they provide safe, accessible travel to all of their passengers. That includes providing an employee to transport physically disabled persons to and from their flights and to their shuttle. An employee accompanied my mother when she got off of her plane arriving in Atlanta from Charlotte. This employee was obligated to transport her where she needed to go. Due to her first flight being delayed, she missed her connecting flight in Atlanta, and had to stay the night until the connection could be made in the morning. They provided her with a voucher to a local hotel and a shuttle to that hotel. The employee who met her at the gate was obligated to help her get to that shuttle so she could get to her hotel in time. As many of us may know, Atlanta airport is one of the largest. You might need to take a train to get from one area to the next. It would be very difficult for my mother to walk that distance with her cane, and that is why she needed a wheelchair. The inconsiderate, selfish employee of whom needed to transport my mother to her destination was coming to the end of his shift. He attempted to hand my mother off to another employee at the desk while she was getting her voucher. Told her it was the end of his shift and he had to clock out. She told him, "You can't leave her here". Her statement, and the way she stated it, made my mother feel like she was a piece of luggage. She ignored it and let the employee take her on her way. She just wanted him to take her to her shuttle so that she could get to her hotel and rest. That did not happen. He strolled my mother along for a moment until they were out of site. They approached a gate, of which was empty, and he told her to wait here for an agent to come by. He left. She waited...and waited. No one ever came and assisted her. She was left like a piece of luggage in the middle of the Atlanta airport with no one around. My mother was treated like a bag that someone did not want to carry around anymore. This situation and the selfishness of that employee makes me think of who else could have been treated like this, or who else could be treated like this in the future. Help me spread this message so that something can be done about this issue. Delta has already been contacted, they do not care enough to do anything about it. I bet they will if this message gets heard by their potential future passengers."
Pros: "Airport staff was nice.. Boarding was good.. Flight attendants very friendly.. Smooth trip"
Cons: "Plane too small.. Nothing but one beverage given all flight"
Pros: "Staff all was good."
Pros: "Entertainment options were great crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Seat could be more comfortable"
Pros: "I was amazed how comfortable we were in economy. Pillows, Blankets that felt like cotton. I would fly Lufthansa over an american carrier any day. We passed through the business class cabin on the way out and I can only imagine how much they were pampered!"
Cons: "Since flying in the US has become expensive and painful I was not expecting much from this flight. They exceed my expectations by so much that I cannot think of anything I would change. (Ok, my chicken was a bit over cooked but that was such a minor thing.)"
Cons: "Food was not edible. Everything else was good."
Pros: "Seating is terribly tight"
Cons: "A normal human sized seat."
Cons: "food screens"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Good crew unlike previous experience a few months ago"
Cons: "We were able to upgrade to a business class seat (row 1) just 2 days before the flight since we had put in a bid a month before to do so if it was accepted. Honestly, the seat DID NOT EVEN RECLINE, NOR DID IT FEEL VERY SPACIOUS! I felt very taken advantage of to only have access to that part of the plane giving us more leg room for $200 upgrade for each seat. When does a Business Class seat NOT recline??? At least my flight attendant was kind enough suggesting that I let the airline know about my unhappy experience."
Pros: "Really friendly crew"
Cons: "No entertainment, worst food I've ever had at an airline"
Cons: "small plane"
Pros: "The food and attention of personal crew"
Cons: "Delays in the itineraries and the entertainment system did not work well"
Pros: "Priority boarding for parents with children was a huge help. Provided extra blankets and most of the crew's friendliness was very appreciated."
Cons: "Provided bassinet is much too small for even a 17 months old. Also very hard bedding made it impossible for the kid to sleep. We observed same with the other parents. Alone with that, the height of the bassinet makes it easy for the kid to get distracted. WORSE PART: Our daughter couldn't get comfortable to sleep and got fussy, so I took her for a walk which didn't help much. Since it was bedtime 11pm with 0 to little traffic, and to avoid her crying from disturbing everyone I resorted to one of the bathrooms with her. She did fall asleep for about 1 hour until one the FA came literally BANGING on the door. Very rude even after I calmly explained the situation. So sorry for such people with no compassion nor understanding in their hearts."
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: "We upgraded to economy premium which was fantastic. With the exception of seats that lie down all the way, you feel like you are in business class."
Pros: "Flight on time. When you are able to get a hold of flight attendants, they do take note of your requests."
Cons: "Entertainment kept freezing up and needed reboot. Crew didn’t answer to the call-for-attendant signal"
Cons: "Very poor connecting flight information for check in. United connecting flight through Lufthansa has no information. Have to ask around airport and nobody seems to know exactly when United will open for checkin. Discover next morning it is only 2 hrs before flight, 1.5 hrs before boarding. Lufthansa made no effort to pass along their connecting flight information, they just drop all responsibility and say it is a United flight so offer no help. First and last time with Lufthansa."
Pros: "The food was good, along with the service."
Cons: "Medical emergency in the row in front of me and all of the crew blocked my television screen so I could not watch my movie. I was sitting in first class."
Pros: "Randomly gave me better seats!"
Pros: "Nice plane, efficient boarding and very attentive crew. There’s plenty of entertainment options and free win with dinner."

Cons: "It was difficult to fall asleep in the seats. Uncomfortable."
Pros: "On time, no complaints"
Cons: "Requested for Hindu vegetarian meal by call and was informed we would receive on flight. Got on flight to find that Hindu vegetarian does not exist. Starved on both legs of flight. That is almost 24 hours. Plane should keep extras and customer service should give correct information."
Cons: "The flight was over 4 hours delayed and we only received a 10 euro voucher. The boarding process was chaotic and stressful."
Pros: "We liked that no one was sitting behind us."
Cons: "Food wasn’t great"
Pros: "Flight attendants were great, friendly, courteous and responsive. The relaxation and mediation program was great! Boarding was fluent and easy."
Cons: "No matter what you try to order on the airplane is totally disgusting. If it's not overloaded with cheese and tomato sauce then it's overcompensated with spices (salt or chili). I will never understand why it is so hard to provide simple, fresh and enjoyable meals. Chairs in economy are rarely cleaned up and one can see on the cushions that they are worn out and have lost their padding making the seats very uncomfortable. There was no foot rest available (which is such a simple addition that helps a lot) and the "holder pocket" on the seat in front was a simple net completely useless. Tables were dirty suggesting they were never cleaned and disinfected. Knowing that the highest source of viruses are the tray tables and the pockets in front I would expect attention to be focused on those- it not only impacts the health of the traveler but more important that of the crew. Why is it so hard to think of this business two fold: make revenue but mostly be kind to humans."
Pros: "Seats on PE were comfortable, on time, clean flight."
Cons: "The worst crew possible, absolutely no concept of customer service, Last flight on lufthansa....so no more complaints Customers needs training on how to use the LOO."
Pros: "the crew and entertainment were excellent"
Cons: "the comfort of the seats is terrible. the boarding process was: 1st class, then everyone else. no zone or seat range loading..."
Pros: "I liked the food."

Pros: "Good crew, okay seats, perfectly adequate food"
Cons: "Entertainment choices were not so hot. Lots of movies, but few new ones."
Pros: "I enjoyed the meal service, drinks and entertainment."
Cons: "My final leg of the trip was delayed by 3 hours, making us sit on the plane. I missed my connection in Minneapolis. Not happy because the airline did nothing to help me get home."
Pros: "Great planes."
Cons: "Flight attendants didn't want to help me find space for my bag. There were many small pockets so I asked them to help arrange so we could fit my bags. Without even looking they said there's no room. 'I can't do that' is what I was told. So who can?? (Maybe she was a transfer from united)"
Cons: "Not so friendly crew"
Pros: "Leg room in Coach. Snack was actually a sandwich which carried us over until the next flight."
Cons: "Difficult to check in on the website."

Cons: "Agents in Budapest were not pleasant at all."
Cons: "This was one of the most uncomfortable flights I've ever been on. The extra cushion attached to the chairs behind our heads made the chairs very uncomfortable pushing our heads too far forward. Not only was it difficult to sleep, it ended up giving me a terrible back and neck ache. The flight from Dubrovnik to Munich didn't have this extra cushion but the flight from Munich to San Francisco did. It's a terrible feature and should be removed. Lastly, the food on this flight was awful and it made me sick. I traveled in Croatia and Montenegro for 2 weeks and didn't get sick once but I got sick from the airline food on the way home, that's pretty disgusting."
Pros: "New plane with very friendly and helpful attendants. Extensive entertainment system with usb charging ports."
Cons: "Food was mediochre, but what can you expect?"
Pros: "New plane. Good service."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding."
Pros: "We arrived 15 minutes early, which is always great!"
Cons: "They ran out of the chicken for dinner and only had manicotti left, which was horrible! No apologies for running out of 1 of the 2 options. The audio was horrible. In order to watch the movies, I had to hold the cord in 2 places in the exact right manner, or it would cut out and there would only be silence. Not fun trying to maintain that position for 9 hours."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, crew was attentive."
Cons: "The selection of movies was pitiful. We sat and waited for food service to deliver half of the catering order that they didn't load at first. The flight was an hour behind take off time because of late connections And then we had to wait for catering??? Not very professional."
Cons: "Missing a bag , longer wait time at Abu Dhabi"
Pros: "Overall satisfied.."
Pros: "Lounge in Abu Dhabi was great!"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable."

Pros: "Seats comfortable especially when plane not too crowded of course!! Blankets large and warm."
Cons: "Staff could be a bit friendlier Movie choice is ok but could be better Food can be improved drastically and could be healthier options"
Pros: "Both planes had USB ports for charging phones. Food was better this time."
Cons: "Space for seats not enough at all. I know its economy but still...It was very expensive to pay extra to get the extra leg room for Abu Dhabi to Washington flight."
Pros: "Only process of boarding."
Cons: "Everything else was not close to other comparative airlines. Food was horrible. Just FYI, cottage cheese is not the only food for Asian vegetarians. There actually are many other options. Not enough options for entertainment. The seats for economy class were way too crammed. With the growth in technology, it would be helpful to have a USB port to charge. ELL phones."

Pros: "The head flight attendant went the extra mile to ensure we got aisle seats together after our seats had been changed since we checked in. Very happy that she went the extra mile to pull it off. Movies and food were very good."

Pros: "Enjoyable,normal everything"

Pros: "Was on time."
Cons: "Crew was a bit harsh."

Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "not a choice of Indian movies;"
Pros: "A little better than the phuket flight but still pretty bad service. Airplane was filthy because crew werent pick up the garbage after breakfast and lunch."
Pros: "I never ever going choose and recommend any one for the airline"
Cons: "Customer care"
Cons: "Custumer care"
Pros: "the crew of the airline and the staff at Abu Dhabi airport were overwhelmingly friendly and thoughtful and helpful. I am an oversize person which can make flying difficult in many ways. first, they never made me feel like I was inconviencing them by asking for help and then 2nd, when one of my neighbors decided to make a big fuss about it, they asked me if I'd like to move to a better seat (which I was happy to take them up on). I had a long layover and was given meal tickets to get food at the food court in the airport. Everyone was very kind."
Cons: "the boarding procedure was difficult at Abu Dhabi. We had to go up a staircase which felt insecure and didn't have a good railing to hold onto. I was not the only passenger who was having trouble."
Cons: "I cancelled my travel plans and there is no refund for my ticket."
Pros: "More food option"
Cons: "non-terminal gate (bus ride) boarding;"
Cons: "Cabin luggage with sensitive/delicate items were forced to be checked in for 2nd leg of the journey. Cabin luggage upon retrieval at destination was scratched/dirty and one glass item inside was broken. Recommend Etihad provides complimentary luggage wrapping to prevent such issues. Additionally, crew was unable to manage noisy kids, and a request for ear plugs was ignored. Recommend Etihad provide affected travelers with ear plugs to manage the noise, and that the crew undergo training to better manage problematic parents w/kids."
Pros: "Nothing specific..."
Cons: "I know this sector is can be tough on the crew... But got a very routine service with not much eye contact... For my coffee was given one sugar/creamer... Before I could ask for another the steward moved away... Didnt bother to check if I am fine...., Also, they ran out of water around landing time :( Entertainment was not available until after 10 or 15 mins take off and cut 10 mins before landing... Felt like second class..."
Pros: "crew friendly...."
Cons: "seats too uncomfortable......food pathetic...leg spacing tight.....person sitting next always unhappy."
Pros: "Boarding, departure and arrival was on time. Check in staff very helpful."
Pros: "Air crew was pleasant and polite. Only silver lining."
Cons: "Flight got held up due to bad weather at ABU and had to spend a few hours in the shabby airport before being boarded on a later flight that landed at 3:40 AM, instead of original 8:40 PM!!! Jet lag compounded due to screwed up timing. had to wait till dawn till family could pick me up. Etihad didn't load all my luggage due to transfer - so had to stand in line to file a report after a 34 h flight! Very unhappy about that, even though luggage arrived later on same day.. Boarding process was chaotic. Can you get Indians to form a line by zones, as all other airlines do??? Finally, I was cramped into a non reclining window exit row seat even though I had explicitly stated in my Etihad preferences that I preferred aisle. A most uncomfortable journey after a long wait. Almost decided I'll never fly your airline again. Just almost..."
Pros: "New flights Very good entertainment Good quality food Customer focused crew"
Cons: "Liquid supply (water) more often would have been nice"
Pros: "My trip had two legs, Austin to Heathrow and Heathrow to Riyadh. The crew from Heathrow to Riyadh were great. I wish I could say the same about the crew from Austin to Heathrow."
Cons: "Overall, the flight was fine. My comments are relative to BA 1st class. At best, I would rate it in the middle of the business class flights I've flown on other airlines. There is nothing about the experience that is actually 1st class from a separate lounge, to boarding, to in flight meals. The seats on my planes were worse than Turkish Airlines Business class (among many others). Storage around the seat is also FAR worse than other airlines products,even in business class. I had taken the same flights in November and 95-98% of the entertainment options were the same. There were, maybe, 2 new movies and 2-3 new documentaries/TV shows. The in seat charger only worked on one leg. Several meal options were "sold out." Mediocre at best."
Pros: "Flight took off on time. Boarding was organized."
Cons: "Cabin was cramped. Food quality was so so."
Pros: "Delicious inflight meal and outstanding service!"
Cons: "Please keep up the same standards"
Pros: "Amy was absolutely amazing! She was attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly! One of the best flight attendants l have ever met."
Pros: "Everything. No issues."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Politeness during check-in, timeliness in providing gate information, having a person at the BA desk to help, being on time"
Cons: "Best flight and touch down ever."
Cons: "My seat was dirty. Gun like material on the seat. I had to put a blanket on my seat. Cold in the back rows. Later, it was adjusted. If you asked for a second travel size bag of Pretzel, I had to wait until they completed the distribution for all travellers. Give me some. Real. Have we gotten that"
Cons: "Flight were delayed abnd canceled"
Cons: "Inept staff throughout at Heathrow. Sat on the plane for half an hour while they located someone ‘qualified to open the door’."
Pros: "Captain kept passengers informed on everything, great flight, helpful crew, fantastic entertainment system."
Cons: "Leg room isn’t great for such can’t a long flight and the food was not the greatest."
Pros: "That we finally made a flight to Rome"
Cons: "Too tired to comment"
Pros: "They arrived a few minutes earlier than expected."
Cons: "Entertainment system is very old and the flight is also very old."
Pros: "The crew was incredibly kind and helpful, the food was excellent and we even got ice cream!!!!!"
Pros: "The Business Class accommodations and staff were excellent. The boarding process was on-time and painless and made a very long trip enjoyable. Despite my poor experience checking luggage, see the dislike comments, there were two employees who did go out of their way at the end of my poor check-in experience to help me. I did not get their names, but their good service was greatly appreciated. The plane crews were also awesome!"
Cons: "1.Outdated website information: I have a small travel guitar that fits in the overhead bins and I always take it with me when I travel, with no issues. It counts as my overhead carry-on. I checked the British Airways website prior to leaving the U.S. and it said small instruments were okay. I was able to board from San Jose, USA, with no issues. However, I was told at Heathrow that no stringed instruments were allowed at all, under no circumstances, ever, no matter the size, even Business Class, even First Class, even if other airports were not enforcing the rules. The rules that ARE NOT LISTED ON YOUR WEBSITE 2. Poor customer service: Due to the above, at Heathrow airport, I had mixed signals everywhere and had to check-in THREE times, twice to oversize, I was sent back and forth all over the place, finally having to go all the way through the airport to pay to have my item boxed. Most of the folks along the way were extremely unpleasant and rude and acted as if it was the craziest thing in the world that I would have a carry-on travel guitar. TRAVEL guitar, small, not full size, not needing any special treatment. Most of the agents, who knew I was struggling with this, did not help me, for example, I had to wait in line all over again, twice! There was one woman that tried to help me and put me to the front of the line on one occasion and the last agent was helpful as well. I did not get any names, which I should have, because at the end, I FINALLY had those two staff members who helped me (see liked comments). I still had to check my box, but the final agent really went out of her way to make me feel better about the experience because she could see that I was given the runaround. But the folks at Oversize and the pre-Security line, were absolutely horrible and rude. No excuse for it at all. None."
Pros: "The crew was very considerate of the fact that we couldn’t order special meal, but quite willingly offered as food which is totally the opposite of our the previous flight"
Pros: "speediness of boarding"
Cons: "too slow service, it took almost to landing to get offered drinks and sale, crew weren't very efficient."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive, serving food, drinks and water very often"
Cons: "BA made me place my laptop and Ipad in the checked bag, preventing me from working on my computer for the next 20+ hours until my final destinations. Ridiculous policy! Very rude immigration and security people at Riyadh, I realize this is not BA's fault, but it was very annoying. Second level search of my carry-on bags at the gate very invasive procedure."
Cons: "Never got on the flight. the delay in the previous flight did not allow me to board this one."
Cons: "No thigh support"
Pros: "Very pleasant crew"
Pros: "Nothing. Not one redeeming thing to say. What a shame."
Cons: "Everything. Massive delay, but not that much as it was JUST before the threshold (by 5 minutes), cheats. Radio failure was the excuse, followed by crew change - yeah, right, not buying that one - more like radio was fine, but crew wanted to chip off work early and avoid last flight (common tactic for a demoralised/unionised workforce). Border is still broken at LGW. THIS is Broken Brexit Britain."
Pros: "The Boeing 787 and the Entertainment system."
Cons: "Toilets ran out of paper towels and kleenex Bags took too long to be delivered."
Cons: "We booked online with a major travel booking site and got Much chaper seats than aa offered. However, they wouldnt assign us a seat until at the airport; what a hassle."
Pros: "Great staff. Helpful and friendly. I had a comfy seat on the aisle and the plane wasn't crowded so I had an empty seat between me and the next passenger. The food was good. The movie/TV options were fun. I was entertained the whole way to London."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "This was my worst flight experience in a long time...an anomaly from other recent BA flights. I was unable to sleep on the flight because it was so crowded. I ordered a lactose-free meal that was unbelievably horrible and from which I'm pretty sure I contracted a food-borne bug that kept me ill (as in sleeping up to 15 hours a day and running for the toilet) for a week after the flight."
Pros: "The flight left on time and the flight attendants were attentive and helpful."
Cons: "We missed our connection flight, to make things worst, we had to wait 3 1/2 hours standing in line just to speak a British airways staff because many of the desks were empty and half the desks were catering to first class and business class passengers"
Pros: "Fantastic service and easy process from start to finish."
Pros: "Service here was above standard"
Cons: "The food is small & needs more variety"
Pros: "Smooth boarding and on time on both flights. Food was decent."
Cons: "(1) Some in-flight entertainment issues which meant it wasn't working for about 30minites. (2) I know the crew have a hard job and have many difficult passengers to deal with. Even so I do find there's a bit too much "attitude" shown by some members of staff. On my flight to London, a mother with a young child wanted hot water and the staff (middle aged British male) was trying to tell her repeatedly she should say "please" when she asks. She was asking politely so this behaviour was rather poor in my view."
Pros: "OVERALL EXPERIENCE WAS MADE DIFFICULT AT BEST"
Cons: "INITIAL FLIGHT TO LONDON CANCELLED ONLY HOURS BEFORE FLIGHT...MANCHESTER FLIGHT WAS LATE TO HEATHROW WAS LATE,THEREFORE MISSED FLIGHT TO L.A. AND HAD TO STAY IN LONDON...LASTLY,I HAD UPGRADED MY SEATS TO MAKE MAKES WIFE'S FIRST OVERSEAS TRIP COMFORTABLE....WE WERE SEATED IN BACK OF PLANE...WILL REQUEST MY SEAT MONEY FOR ROUND TRIP BACK..."
Pros: "Everything was great and I truly enjoyed this flight."
Cons: "no complimentary water and coffee and more."
Cons: "It was very warm on the plane. No air jets available. Steward said the plane was having an issue with air quality. I have asthma and warm conditions with out air flow made this flight very uncomfortable for me. There was a passenger in from of me that was getting overheated and nauseous."
Pros: "Nothing to say"
Cons: "Too many Delays Very bad wheelchair service at Heathrow Airport Delayed Baggage Bad food options at American Airlines Flight"
Pros: "The food was good and the leg room was very good. The flight was on time."
Cons: "On both flight s going to LAX to London and London to LAX we were sitting in the back of the plan with all the families with noisy kids. on the flight to London I had two twins in one seat it was difficult for the mother and the children were all over the place. with a tantrum at the end of the flight because of having to have the seat belt on. On the flight home we were in the last row and all kinds of crying kids. If I ever fly again on British Air I want a seat further forward but if is hard to pre book your seat. We are in our 70's and would like a quieter area."
Pros: "The seats are very nice and have blankets. Also, I loved that there were current newspapers available to read--a very nice touch. The food was okay, but not wonderful."
Cons: "I was in the very last row of the back of the plane in the middle. Getting out to stretch or use the facilities, etc., was almost impossible."
Pros: "Service with a smile! My bag didn't make it back from Heathrow to Newark but British Airways was on top of it. They apologized for the inconvenience and located my bag and I had it within 48 hours. I HIGHLY recommend this airline to everybody!"
Pros: "I liked the polite and friendly manner of the flight attendants."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over an hour after boarding, and the temperature was uncomfortably warm. Even after takeoff, it took several hours for the temperature to cool down to normal. I have not experienced this before and wonder why it took so long to cool. All of the passengers around me were complaining of the heat.."
Cons: "after 8 hours of delay after delay. Flight was cancelled. No flights available to New Orleans until the next day at 4pm. Had to be at work for payroll responsibliity. People counting on me for their paid. Hope I find another airline to make it home. Slept in airport with on place to go or eat"
Pros: "Once we took off, all went very well!"
Cons: "Disappointed that paperwork issues caused a 2hr delay. the captain kept assuring a take off in "10mins" again and again which got rather annoying after a while!"
Cons: "Flight delayed multiple hours. Sat on Tarmac for 2 hours. Baggage lost for two days. Worst experience flying ever."
Pros: "The crew on this BA flight were nice and pleasant even in the back back section,B"
Cons: "Boarding was a free for all, no discipline at all, people pushing and shoving awful."
Pros: "Loved all of the coffee tea and drink offerings, they were frequent but not overbearing. Vegetarian option was pretty okay."
Cons: "Seats were as tight as expected for coach but felt as if they were lacking cushioning on the backs, as if they were almost completely worn through."
Pros: "I actually slept the whole way."
Pros: "Flight attendant was very pleasant. Flight was less than an hour so no food or entertainment. Arrived on time."
Cons: "My London to Charlotte flight arrived early, customs and immigration were fast. I was not allowed to change my flight to JAX to an earlier one so I had a 4 hour layover. I had not been issued a boarding pass in LHR and when I got one in Charlotte I was seated in the very back seat next to the WC. I booked this flight in February so was displeased that I had such a bad seat, also that I could have had a seat on the earlier flight. Something about BA and AA partnering makes it difficult and it should be easier."
Pros: "Great service. The flight attendants were cheerful, polite, and helpful The seat was comfortable. There was a large selection of movies, including lots of old classics."
Cons: "The food was awful. I am not fussy eater, and I could not finish the meal"
Pros: "Loaded quickly, crew was nice"
Cons: "No personal tv, small seat, small seatbelt."
