They didn’t let me in because they close the gate they said??

Pros: "Usually a great trip."
Cons: "A series of about 9 rows of 3 seats each row, had errors in to the monitors that normally you can watch a movie, watch news, or listen to music. Approximately 27 people could not use these monitors affixed in the seat before you. These monitors (screens) control the reading lights, the signal for the stewardess. Flight 33 on 6/30/2017 had 12.3 hours of blankness and the complaints were numerous, but the crew were of no use. I wish this would have happened to business or first class. The crew were horrible."
Pros: "The friendly and respectful and patient staff :)"
Cons: "As opposed to our amazing flight from San Francisco to Istanbul, with incredible, caring and attentive crew, this flight was the opposite. The crew seemed annoyed by our few requests. I felt denied water and so, dehydrated. I counted one smile The entire flight. The crew seemed unhappy and wanted to do only the bare minimum. Disappointing, especially after such an incredibly positive experience six weeks ago."
Pros: "The seats reclined very far and were super comfortable! I never sleep on planes and I slept the whole 13 hour flight. The staff was so friendly and made sure you were as comfortable as could be. The food was delicious and they give you a menu so that you can make a selection."

Cons: "seats were a little cramped for a 12hr flight, but I'm not a short guy. I guess it pays to go business class."
Cons: "it was so HOT!!!!!!!"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and I haven't been informed about it AT ALL, only when I arrived to the airport. At the Turkish desk, they didn't manage to book me on another flight, so I had to purchase extra two tickets for approx. $600 from two different airline companies. BAD! BAD! BAD! From both Kayak and Turkshit airlines!"

Cons: "Staff on Istanbul airport is rude. They don't respond to people"

Cons: "I didn't like how the description of Athens included old Ottoman sites!?! Few people if anyone go to Athens or larger Greece for Ottoman history. Be more impartial please."

Cons: "The seats were too small with too little leg room. I'm not that tall, only 5'8", but I could not barely get the headrest up to my height, and my knees still touched the seat in front."
Pros: "The service was amazing, always offering food, drinks, and other comforts."
Cons: "The TVs did not work on my flight from Istanbul to Hamburg. Not only my tv but others on the plane kept saying it was an "error" do to a seat readjustment. Also it is so hot in the Turkish airport especially in the 300 gates. It made boarding miserable because there was so many people."
Cons: "Delays are problematic. Passengers should be warned what sits fall on emergency exists, as these are uncomfortable. The Istanbul airport is clearly overcapacity."
Pros: "The cabin crew were wonderful and friendly, the entertainment was top notch (great movies!!), the seats were comfortable, and the food was better than expected. I was quite pleased with the experience (other than the boarding process)"
Cons: "The crew when boarding the plane in Istanbul were downright RUDE. Not just rude, they were unhelpful, unwilling to listen, and were actually offensive. It was quite bad. The boarding process was also terrible. The boarding area was stifling hot, crowded, and disorganized. There was no announcement telling us when it was delayed, there was no information about where to line up, and people were chaotically cramming in everywhere. They could have done a much better job of that."
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: "Nothing at all"

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: "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??!!"

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."

Cons: "Plane too small.. Nothing but one beverage given all flight"

Pros: "Comfortable and Clean"
Cons: "Great experience."
Pros: "I liked the movies , comfortable seats, food was great!!!"
Cons: "If we had free WiFi"
Pros: "crew was nice"
Cons: "our flight got delayed 3 hours, we lost all our connections and I ended up traveling for 24 hours after having paid almost 2,000 dollars on my ticket. All i got from you was a bottle of water, and 7 euro ticket for a snack, it's outrageous."
Cons: "I don't know"
Pros: "Crew was helpful, food was good"
Cons: "Seating could have been better"
Cons: "My seats were broken on two flights--could not recline. Maintain the equipment better."
Cons: "I missed the flight to Manchester due to delay in the flight to Munich"
Pros: "Nice crew, big selection of movies/entertainment"
Cons: "Extreme distance to walk in Frankfurt. Flight delayed, long wait for our luggage."
Pros: "Tout était impeccable."
Pros: "Professional staff, up to date aircraft, very clean, good meals, good selection of entertainment, very attentive to customers. Passed through many times with beverages. Lufthansa is always a pleasure."
Cons: "Boarding at Bologna was a nightmare. The Check-In lines opened late; the number of desks open was limited; took over an hour to check in for flight"
Pros: "Food was okay."
Cons: "No entertaintment system. Some crew members did not speak English."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "I had to wait in line for over an hour to get a ticket to replace the one I missed because of how late the first flight was. As with all my Lufthansa experiences, it was frustratingly slow"
Pros: "On time, no complaints"
Cons: "Food quality on Detroit - Frankfurt could have been better. About Frankfurt airport: the security check (between gates - for going to gate for connecting flight) was in-efficient. A single agent working while multiple other agents idle nearby. Processing speed was slower than other European & US international airports."
Cons: "My bag no arrived"
Pros: "The flight attendants all were very helpful and seemed to enjoy their jobs"
Pros: "I was better prepared"
Pros: "entertainment organized boarding at O'Hare airport"
Cons: "1. I was in economy class. The rows are too close. Passenger in front of me leaned his chair back and the tablet/tv was IN MY FACE. 2. The passenger behind me was trying to move his legs and constantly was pushing my chair. 3. Announcements were not loud enough. Barely heard it."
Pros: "Wonderful flight crew. Quiet, orderly. Food good, plenty drinks."
Cons: "I an that person who instantly reclines their seat all the way in front of me. Ugh. Not Lufthansa's fault!"
Pros: "Seats were ok for a short flight."
Cons: "Food was disappointing...especially 'pizza' at the end. Crew was very helpful to family with baby."
Cons: "Everything.UEverything.United is suck"
Pros: "Everyone at Lufthansa are very friendly so thank you everyone we love you"
Pros: "the two older female stewards spoke slow enough so I could understand. The customer service rep in the lobby was always friendly, knowlegeable and able to help me. For example, I did not know, when boarding, if we had to show our passports, but I asked him and we did not. I did not grasp the five levels of boarding he mentioned. I knew our group was not handicapped and we were economy, but I did not really know if we were group 4 or 5 to board."
Cons: "There was one female steward who made me take my carry on bag from the upper deck and store it below my seat so another lady's much, much larger bag would fit. Her bag was so large, I can't believe it met the standards. On the other hand, this procedure may be the way things work out,for the good of everyone, but it came as a surprise to me. To accomplish the task, she even asked another female to move her carry on from the rack above her to another several rows down. This lady's hair was too big for such a small plane. She talked way too fast in the first monologue. The plane seemed cheap and the sub airline had an air outlet that would not turn off and leaked with water mist. There was an air conditioner that also had a water vapor leak overhead, which my son said was a 'strip' which he could not control. We were seating in the back row. We noticed the plane was operated by Mesa airlines and the plane was assembled in Brazil, giving me a feeling of excessive cost cutting. Also, the pilot had an accent that sort of added to the 'Brazil' thing that he was not a native English speaker. However, he had a good landing at Atlanta near midnight. I did not feel I was on a real 'United' Airlines flight."
Pros: "Even I fly Lufthansa all the time with miles and more it makes you IT'S LIKE TOILET PAPER...VERY DISAPPOINTED...."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very polite and helpful. The seats had those "wings" on either side of the head rest to help keep your head from bobbing back and forth. There were a few good movies to watch that were current, but a lot of old movies that we had zero interest in."
Cons: "The flight was considered a Lufthansa flight and had a Lufthansa flight number, but was operated by Air Canada. We could not check in online ahead of time for some reason. When we got to the airport, we tried to check in at the Lufthansa kiosk and check in line, but they told us we had to go to the Air Canada area. The ticketing/check in process was very confusing. As for the food, the chicken "wrap" was not a wrap, and was a weird Hot-Pocket type meal. After each meal, we ended up having to hold our garbage for quite some time which made manuvering in and out of seats a little tricky. I wish the seat cushion had a little more cushion since we were sitting for so long. Also at some point the overhead lights came on and stayed on, which was annoying if you were trying to nap."
Cons: "The boarding gate was changed three times. I fell asleep at one of the gates. Luckily I woke up and realized the second change in time to still make it there."
Cons: "The return leg has been nothing but a disaster, in every way possible, specifically my time and financially. At no point in the booking process, when I paid over $800 for the trip, was I told that I needed a specific travel visa (Canadian ETA) to fly back into Toronto for my return flight. Subsequently when I checked in for my flight yesterday morning in Manchester, England, I did not have the required travel documents and had to be rerouted onto a flight into the U.S. at a cost to me of $350. The rerouted flight got me to Washington Dulles airport, where I then had to purchase a second flight to get me home to Cleveland, Ohio, at an additional/extra cost of $450. MY CAR IS PARKED AT TORONTO PEARSON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT!!! I am having to now rent a car and drive there tomorrow (Friday) to collect my car, at another additional cost of $100 plus a 10-hour round trip. Due to the lack of information and communication on your companies behalf, I am down close to a $1,000 and will lose 2-days in work as of the additional days I am having to travel back to Toronto to collect my vehicle. I would appreciate contact from your organization to find the avenue I need to take for compensation of my time and finances. Regards"
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Could update movie selection"
Pros: "Made our connection, plenty of room on plane."
Cons: "Plane was late out of Budapest. Lounge at Budapest opened very late. No entertainment options."
Pros: "Quick flight Crew efficient"
Cons: "Slight delay Food was an energy bar type candy No entertainment Seats slightly uncomfortable"
Cons: "I asked for my shopping from my magazine several times. Food is beyond bad.....it is absolutely horrible."
Cons: "My seat (33A) was would not recline. I alerted the stewardess early on, she called a male colleague, both smiled and reassured me that they will deal with it later on. The uncomfortable seat became even more cramped as at the end of the dinner service the passenger ahead reclined his seat. I tried to catch the attention of the cabin crew - in vain. On disembarkation I saw the stewardess and reminded her of her promise of help . She sweetly wished me a "pleasant weekend". The cabin crew did not seem to care much over the discomfort of an elderly traveler in economy class."
Pros: "aircraft was clean and the crew was organized and very professional"
Pros: "Absolutely the worst flight land and air stewards i havr ever seen. Would never flu with them againrude groun personel"
Pros: "Outstanding cabin service from start to finish! Great, tasty food! Wide variety of beverages...and all beverages served "on the house"/complimentary. Comfortable, spacious seats, even in economy class seats. I haven't flown on many non-U.S. airlines, but when it comes to cabin service, Lufthansa blows away any U.S. airline I've flown on, including long overseas flights!"
Pros: "Really everything great"
Cons: "flight entertainment had pretty bad failures. And bathrooms are centralized in center of plane where people congregate so you never know if bathrooms are occupied"
Pros: "Everyone is very very nice!"
Pros: "On time arrival both ways, decent service"
Cons: "Charges for advanced seat assignment on an international flight is ludicrous and unacceptable. Lavatory malfunction on return trip lead to unbearable smell at my seat."
Pros: "Lufthanza is very bad with customer service. They have a NO COMMUNICATION POLICY. Tell the customer nothing. Leave them in the dark."
Cons: "no announcements about a flight that did't occur for one hour later"
Cons: "Behind my seat there was a couple with a young kid kicking our seat all the time for 8 hours...the crew would walk by saw it and didnt say anything. The kid is young, not his fault. Kids are kids. But when i told his parents that we were being bothered they just ignored us. I believe the crew has to keep an eye on behavior like that and put a stop to it. I guess those are the perks of flying economy class. Cheap and nobody cares..."
Cons: "Very long lines while checking in"
Cons: "No boarding advantages as a star alliance silver member."
Pros: "Great staff on board made our flight enjoyable."
Cons: "Being outside in the rain while we waited to board the plane left us soaking wet as we sat down. There was a meowing cat on board the plane that was an interesting experience as well."
Cons: "Entertainment seems like you have to pay for even basics. If you need to charge for movies domestically, fine, but even basic news or so timed out. Seats are tight (legroom). I am 6'2" and knees were against seat in front of me."
Pros: "I was impressed by the entertainment selection in economy. Also they always had a vegetarian meal for me. The crew on the flight team were always super professional & very pleasant. I enjoyed my flights more because of them."
Pros: "Decent movie selection and a lot of food for economy class."
Cons: "The some flight attendants were very rude when my son who is 18 months wanted to walk the aisles. They even told me to take my seat when they were sitting themselves to eat, but we were not being noisy or bothering them. They would rather have the child sit in the seat and scream and cry, then be happier walking around mid-flight. Not much sympathy."
Pros: "Plane is clean and comfortable. Boarding was great."
Cons: "Staff was lacy and rude to another customer. She told the passenger she wasn’t walking to the back of the plane to get her a paper cup."
Pros: "Smooth flight from Copenhagen to Berlin - uneventful which is good. They even offered free coffee and tea."
Pros: "The SAS flight was fine. My dissatisfaction was with the company that booked my ticket which I found through a Kayak search. When booking, there was no information about luggage and I ended up paying for it at the airport. This should clearly be declared in the online booking process."
Cons: "Multiple delays. Need to offer back up flights and hold connections for delayed flights."
Pros: "the diverse amount of films"
Cons: "the food could have been better."
Pros: "Food was the best airline food!"
Pros: "In time! And with a very nice person Crüe."

Pros: "SAS has offered great service on two flights this past week. Look forward to flying them again."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled without explanation"
Pros: "The crew were fine and the boarding was efficient."
Cons: "The TVs were really old - my husband’s broke and mine couldn’t actually play movies due to it not registering fingerprints. The pocket in front of me was also ripped open spilling those annoying in flights magazines and the airplane smelled like the lavatory which was 6 rows up... just broken down and not well maintained. It was only a 9.5 hour flight but I expected better from SAS."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Limited selection of movies No food choices No snacks offered during flight First European airline to fall below the standards of US airlines"
Pros: "The crew was great and the economy seating was roomier than expected."
Cons: "Long line just to drop bag off since I had already used the kiosk to check in, then 2 1/2 hour flight delay, charged for wine which should be complimentary on international flights."
Cons: "SAS is a train wreck. everything they told us was misinformation from the first delay (there were 5 delays, one each hour, before they cancelled) The whole time they would not allow ticket changes while we watched available flights take off for 5 hours. We had no say in the rebooking - they just said wait you will get an email. The SAS workers need to be trained - how about putting up a sign that says "this line for parking vouchers ony'ly" when 300 people are lined up for assistance."
Cons: "The flight good bit it’s always crappy when you loose your luggage"
Pros: "Left on time. 50 minutes early in Copenhagen. Food was not bad."
Cons: "TSA at EWR was ridiculous. Slow lines and very inefficient."
Cons: "Handling of delay: - Massive delays and time wasted with individual case handling at the transfer centre in CPH when a more efficient group/bulk handling of passengers on the same flight with similar cases would make more sense. Handling of baggage during the delay. Un-necessary additional delays with baggage handling due to poor management."
Pros: "The food."
Cons: "The seat are so narrow"
Cons: "Delayed flight, missed connection, lost baggage."
Pros: "Very comfortable and smooth flight, on board entertainment on first leg of trip was great. Food was fresh and good. Nice coffee & Tea service,"
Cons: "Boarding was a little scattered, but ok"
Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "Not full. Kind crew."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Jal is the best airline"
Cons: "The movies and tv shows could be different for inbound and outbound flies, or at least change them more often"
Cons: "They only offered tea and coffee for free as a drink and nothing anything more, and were not kind at explaining this."
Pros: "The crew was excellent, the flight from Newark to Copenhagen was on new aircraft A340-300 I believe, it was very nice and comfortable even in coach as long as you have a compact body."
Cons: "That my Silver Star Alliance status got me nothing with SAS, no early boarding, no ability to select a seat until 24 hours before without paying an extra cost, if you wanted a beer you had to pay, this is a no frills airline now, pay as you go."
Pros: "Good programming on the tv. Staff was mostly nice. Cabin was updated, but as usual in the "cheap seats" - too small!"
Cons: "They canceled our flight and then were unable to rebook us for the same day flying to Chicago. We were told by the SAS rebooking agent that no flights available on ANY flights from ANY carriers at ANY airport in all of Europe. Unless you were the couple at the other end of the counter - they were rebooked just fine. What do we do? SAS agent says, "Not my problem." So we have to stay an extra day. We ask - will you be putting us up in a hotel? Agent told us every hotel was sold out. "What do we do?" SAS agent: "Not my problem"."
Pros: "Seats are more comfortable than those of many other airlines."
Cons: "Normally, I am not picky regarding airline food. In SAS's economy or "Go" class, there is no choice of food. I can think of plenty of dishes that would be appealing to many people. Yet the meal that was served, beef stew, posed a problem as I don't eat red meet. Since many people also do not eat beef due to religious beliefs, I am appalled by SAS's decision to only serve this dish to its economy class passengers. As I ordered my ticket through Kayak, I didn't have the option to request a special diet, nor did I think to do so as airlines generally do not serve serve a beef dish as their one and only."
Pros: "Scandinavian hospitality showed through all the way. Kind, sharp, attractive staff, prompt service."
Cons: "Space is always going to be something I don't like. Meanwhile most of the plane in 1st class sits wide open. Expand business class."
Pros: "Two complimentary meals in addition to complimentary blankets was very nice. Dimming the lights for sleeping was also nice."
Cons: "They did not enforce the boarding of the back of the plane after first and business class, as a person sitting in the back of the plane it was a horrible boarding experience. Should also board less rows at a time from back to front. Even though the lights were dimmed I couldn't actually sleep, since the lights were turned back on too often to try to pass out breakfast less than 4 hours after we just had dinner."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled the morning of."
Pros: "Quite a contrast between international and domestic flights. SAS had a blanket, pillow, water bottle, and earbuds on each seat. We were served TWO meals including a full dinner. Flight crew was very polite and responsive."
Cons: "I was really disappointed at finding out at luggage check-in that I had to pay extra (£60.00) for my one regular-size suitcase. On the return flight I was told that this amount would be - as it turned out in my case - less than half, if I called SAS a day before departure. Why did I have to pay for the checked luggage at all?"
Cons: "Cattle call boarding in a culture where standing in que is unheard of."
Pros: "Everything was on time!"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The flight was delayed well over an hour. I was unable to check in the night before. I was finally able to check in online the afternoon of the flight, but no seats were left, so had a boarding pass with no seat assignment. Got to the gate and they sent me and about 25 other folks with no seat assignment to wait for a "colleague" who finally appeared after almost everyone else had boarded. I did get a seat, but I was one of the last to board. They ran out of salmon dinners, so the stewardess plopped a chicken dish in front of me--didn't eat since I am vegetarian. The stewardess did give me a free mini bottle of wine, which is normally free on Lufthansa. I am just not all that impressed with SAS. I will try to avoid them in the future."
Pros: "The food was excellent"
Cons: "A glass of wine free of charge would have been a nice addition."
Pros: "Modern plane, great entertainment system"
Cons: "Paying for booze, vegetarian breakfast is awful."
Cons: "Noisy people in flight around. Attendant did not care to bring water when asked. Secret luggage fees of 70 EUR one way Never SAS again"
Pros: "Even though I did not get the seat I paid extra for, it was a great flight."
Pros: "plenty of space (very few passengers)"
Cons: "scary old plane and a (Estonian) crew with mediocre skills with the local language"
Cons: "Discovered that I would have to pay 70 euro for my bag check-in. Not fun at all."
Cons: "There wasn't free food but free coffee."
Pros: "So far best flight I've ever experienced ! I was traveling to Europe and both ways I was pleasantly surprised, planes were on time , super nice crew and great food , Way to go SAS !!!"

Pros: "Food and movies were great!"
Cons: "Couldn't afford a seat with leg space."
Pros: "The food and onboard service was excellent THe entertainment was plentiful and varied."
Cons: "The seats were to close together. I am not one to get claustrophobia but 5 hours in I felt it and I nearly bolted off the plane after the 10+ hour flight. UGH. Shoulder to shoulder, knees touching the seat in front of you, and only a few inches to recline. UGH. We tried to upgrade when we arrived at Oslo and again in Stockholm but the personnel at both stations were rude and not helpful. UGH."
Pros: "Good, comfortable plane and friendly crew."
Cons: "The food was mediocre."
Pros: "Sear had great leg room."
Cons: "No complaints at all, the pilot did a great job!"
Pros: "Very late departure and arrival cause us lost of transportation in Barcelona and money paid will not be returned"
Cons: "Lost of deposited money to tea nsportation due to delay plane arrival"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and did not have to pay extra for a carryon luggage"
Cons: "The boarding process was quite chaotic and slow. There was no oversight of what people were putting in the overhead compartment so many were putting both their carryon suitcase and under seat bags up there leaving no room for our suitcases by the time we boarded. The flight attendants were eventually helpful in finding space by making people remove smaller items, but it was time consuming and avoided on most airlines we typically fly by enforcing bag rules as passengers are boarding."
Pros: "Crew was good, seats were good."
Cons: "Barely made connection because we were late landing."
Pros: "My flight was delayed and rescheduled 3 to 4 times. Then once flight took off, There were no complementary snacks...not even water."

Pros: "everything worked fine"
Cons: "the seat"
Pros: "Everything ran quite smoothly."
Cons: "Not much to dislike. The flight was short. Perhaps that the seats need to be a bit more comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was an hour late leaving Rome. They did not even offer a complimentary drink for the inconvenience. Because it was late leaving Rome we missed our connecting flight from London to Chicago. Disappointed in lack of customer service!!!!!"
Cons: "Service level and carelessness of the crew"
Cons: "They insisted we check in our hand carries for free because the plane was full. So we did. They ended up leaving one of them in London. No entertainment. No free snack."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and well organized. The plane was clean and prepared -cabin crew was very friendly.We did miss our connection and I liked that British airways got us on the next available flight and had that information as we exited our flights."
Cons: "Nothing. The flight was quick and boarding was easy"
Pros: "Clean, new airplane."
Cons: "Seats very cramped; no free tea or coffee?!"
Cons: "Poor service and communication"

Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "Flight attendants repeatedly increased the amount of alcohol given to drunk passengers while those passengers spilled food and drinks on me and could not keep their bodies out of my personal space."
Cons: "Seats spacing, food"
Pros: "Boarding was seamless and straightforward"
Cons: "Crew - Mostly men that looked like they hated their jobs. They were mostly unfriendly, and getting any of them to crack a smile was like pulling teeth."
Pros: "Me and my husband were upgraded from world traveler plus to business class, which we are thankful for"
Cons: "We were unable to order special meal online and were told to contact onboard crew for meals. When we contacted them inflight, they said they don’t have meals!!! And we were left to starve the whole night, while food was served for all around us. The really shocking thing is none of the crew had the courtesy to offer some snacks or bread. These especially when we were seated in business class!"
Cons: "Bumpy but not BA’s fault"
Pros: "Unremarkable short hop that met basic expectations"
Cons: "Tight seats No snack or drink service"
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "11 hours wait time!!!! No lounge entrance No food!"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and the flight attendants very attentive."

Pros: "excellent, efficient, clean, professional"
Cons: "partnering with American Airlines is a crime and an offense."
Cons: "Total confusion boarding following a three hour delay. Food terrible. The total opposite travel experience flying BA to London. Very disappointing experience returning home on BA"
Cons: "Flight was 30 minutes late taking off."
Pros: "Leg room; aisle seat. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "Only "tap" water was available at no additional charge for a 2.5 hour flight. (Imho, this a penny-wise-but-pound-foolish offering, as it leaves an acutely negative impression of BA with the customer.) Even when I tried to buy a diet soft drink, non were available. Also, delayed flight -- a moderate inconvenience and, alas, all too frequent occurrence."
Pros: "Excellent service all around. Would definitely fly Iberia again"
Cons: "Boarding at Frankfurt difficult"
Pros: "I really liked that the crew were friendly, information was clearly communicated and process smooth."
Cons: "For a long flight the seats weren't that comfy and if it's an overnight I would suggest they let you know when food is coming or lights out so you can plan. Also, just a suggestion but I would prefer to pay less and not have the entertainment stuff or just use a BA app on my phone."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Long wait in boarding - flight was delayed"
Cons: "Crew did not seem friendly nor as though they wanted to help. Perhaps because they were all young, perhaps some senior crew members to supervise would be beneficial."
Pros: "Great service and helpful staff Coffee was fresh filter coffee"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The BA ticket counter did not open early enough with enough staff to get all passengers checked in time. As such, the plane was delayed and we missed our connecting flight."

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Last-minute gate change with no announcement."
Pros: "Like the direct flight."
Cons: "Didn't like the 2 hour layover."
Pros: "Pilot pulled off the runway as he thought there was a problem. Determined there was no problem having kept us in an overheated plane for over90 minutes"
Pros: "The two vegan meals I received on this flight were better than expected. They weren't just picked over salads without dressing or lukewarm spaghetti like some airlines serve. The entertainment provided was diverse enough, though the touch screens were a bit aggravating."
Cons: "Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, get your B-Gates sorted. Everyone of the gates in B 20s terminal had a flight leaving and there was no system set up for where people in the various flights should queue or stand. A lot of people were confused as to who was in line for this flight and where to stand prior to the actual boarding starting."
Cons: "Headphone jack was faulty"
Pros: "The flight staff gave great and courteous service"
Cons: "My flight partner and I were separated in our seating! We did finally talked to other passengers and got to sit together"
Cons: "TV didn't work for 3 hous and it was SO HOT that many of us passages resorted to fanning ourselves with covers torn from the front of the in-flight magazine. All this for $1000. British Air, NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!"
