Cons: "The aircraft was changed and passengers were required to check in their hand luggage, yet remove their electronics from their hand carry. In my case I had several electronic items which I had to carry onto the aircraft and store awkwardly which created a major risk of my camera and laptop being damaged in the process. This is not the kind of service I expect from Qatar Airways, especially considering the exorbitant ticket prices."

Cons: "I did not like the fact that on now 3 flights I have lost miles, as on every flight I have tried to sign on as a member or frequent flyer and on all flights, there were no entry forms. This is also after my attempt to complete one on line, which I have had no response to."
Pros: "Business class was wonderful liked pjs, food, seating. Etc"

Pros: "The flight was comfortable. The flight attendants were pleasant and attentive."
Cons: "After the flight landed we had to present our boarding passes one by one so they could be inspected again and our names were crossedoing off some list. It really slowed down meeting our ride and getting to customs. I think it also contributed o our flight being delayed since the flight before us had to do the same thing as they disembarked. I would be more concerned if my flight had a close connection if this is a standard practice. This was my first flight with Qatar. If the practice is standard I won't keep flying them."

Pros: "The two native born Senegalese boys, aged about 8 or 9 were delightful, energetic, generally well behaved."
Cons: "They understood my poor French but I couldn't understand most of theirs. They needed a great deal of help with eating the adult meals they were served and using the entertainment system. At first the flight attendants did little if anything to help. Later after I pointed out the problems we were having they were better. Such young ones needed better supervision and meals easier to eat than they received. I needed less stress on the long 8 hour flight. This was not quite a Sky Priority Comfort Plus experience for me."
Pros: "Everything perfect and arrive to destination on perfect time."
Cons: "All positive."
Cons: "It's KLM. What else do you need to know."

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "We were told they were holding our flight, we ran 3 terminals and they’d already left."

I just filed a claim and got rude service saying I should have filed the claim at the airport baggage area but there was not anybody there to do the claim then he agent upstairs said they just spoke to them and they are there and I should have done it there. This was so rude and there is no way to get back into customs area. If we paid 200 for bags I expect them to arrive on time. I’m asking for a refund of the baggage fees."
Pros: "The staff the facilities the food all ******. Will definetly look forward to choose both delta and KLM"

Pros: "Loads of leg room"
Cons: "Loved everything"
Pros: "A nice short flight"
Cons: "We had booked business on our flight to Milan, and it was extremely disappointing that on this sector they put us on the last seat in the back of the plane. There were plent of seats on this flight that had extended legroom. A bit of a mystery, why Westjet elected to put usin the last seats on the plane?"
Pros: "Plane service"
Cons: "1h30min delay at airport"
Pros: "If you would like to learn more you can call me 628.600.8825 Very dissapointed"
Pros: "10 hour flight - I was well looked after, regular drinks, the food and snacks were good enough and tasty. The in flight entertainment was good - latest movies and worked a great variety of tv, books and movies. The airplane was modern and comfortable"
Cons: "The flight was very delayed. We sat on the floor because there was not enough seating. We eventually had to squeeze into buses and drive around the tarmac to find a plane. We lost 5 bags in the process but eventually got them 2 days after arrival. the bags did not show up when we originally were told they would."
Pros: "Entertainment, cabin crew great."
Cons: "Seat layout may now be standard but is still cramped."
Cons: "Boarding was a disaster as my companion was selected for random search which held us up as there was no urgency to process us. Then there was no sign for where we should go since upper deck on 747 so we went in "economy" line as indicated on ticket and then was sent to correct line when we got to the front, wasting more time. The seatrs were the most uncomfortable I have ever beeon on for a long flight. I also paid extra to be in the exit row, to have people constantly congregating in front of us.The food was also mediocre."
Pros: "Good aircraft, good service, on time, eventless"
Cons: "There are two types of foot-rests, both are a nuisance for people with long legs. The one popping up from below one's seat is extremely hard to put back in place. The metallic one folding down from under the seat in front cannot be secured back and is always in the way if the passenger needs to stretch his/her legs. This seems to be a new appliance, and I jut wish they would do away with it altogether. More is not necessarily better."
Cons: "Air France’s apathy towards its customers is shocking. Traveling with three children , our flight was delayed by 3hrs resulting us arriving in Paris after 1AM. With the airport shuttle(CDVAL) to our airport hotel closed, they offered no assistance despite of my request. Simply asked us to take a taxi (when all taxi stands are abandoned at 2AM). Beware if traveling with family."
Cons: "Delay in take off 45 min!!!!"
Pros: "n/a"
Cons: "The entertainment system was very old with minimum selection. My entertainment system actually stopped working. The seating area was very cramped. I called for service a couple of times from my seat, but nobody came."
Pros: "The Delta flight service was much better than the Air France flight I took on the previous leg."
Cons: "This was one of the worst flights I’ve been on. Both planes were downright filthy. The flight from Dallas to Barcelona had several broken toilets. Flight from Paris to Barcelona boarded and once everyone was on board, they told us that we would be sitting there for 2 hours before leaving."
Pros: "Great newer plane, great service!"
Pros: "Crew very professional"
Cons: "Boarding was a little confusing"
Pros: "Great food and friendly crew."
Cons: "Seatback system was old and not very functional."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "The crew was nice and the seat comfortable."
Cons: "Never got the pre-ordered wheelchair in Paris and only after long negotiations at JFK. Also, Delta lost my checked bag between JFK and DCA."
Pros: "Average crew. Average seat."
Cons: "They could have controlled screening babies better. They just let them scream....."
Pros: "Red wine was excellent"
Cons: "Bright lights on throughout flight, would have been nice to dim lights for late night flight so passengers could rest"
Cons: "Placed in last row w/ non-reclining seats, even though bought tix 7 months early. We travel w/ only carry-on bags. AF allows 35 kg each but only 12 kg in cabin. I asked, online, twice, if we could have a couple of extra kg for hand pieces. Rec’d only auto. luggage policy. Forced to check both bags."
Pros: "Flight was in time"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Seats! They were too small!"
Cons: "It was a great flight can’t think of anything"
Pros: "Plane was new, and seatback screen responsive and functional."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Pros: "Efficient and smooth flight. Service was great and flight attendants were friendly"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Modern aircraft with power, big screens etc"
Cons: "Teenage crew, poor service (not even water brought on request, all "self service" at back of flight, and not being allowed a second drink with dinner), poor language skills (crew not very helpful when 2 hour delay meant I could miss connecting flight, suggesting I "walk fast")."
Pros: "Great service and food."
Cons: "Tv screen is resolution is to low. Hard to see details."
Pros: "1. Entertainment - Decent movie selection. I wished the angle of the screen in economy could be adjustable as well. Turkish Air does it better. Once the seat ahead of me reclines I dont have too much hope of saving my eyes from the awkward angles."
Cons: "1. Boarding - Learn from maybe Turkish Air who allocate people zones based on where you are seated in the plane. People seated all the way in the back should be allowed to board first and fill the plane back to front. Makes it less likely for you stand around waiting for people as well people all the way in the back making contact with every possible human already seated in the aisles. 2. Comfort - Window seats are too hot, middle aisle seats are too cold 3. Thankfully they do have halal offering. Now if they will even let me choose that I am allergic to seafood. Glad for the chicken. Nothing to boast about."
Pros: "Onboard crew was friendly. Dinner was good"
Cons: "Cabin was very cold. Not enough legroom compared to orher international carriers. Male flight attendant kept bumping into my husband sitting in aisle seat so he unable to get any sleep. We tried upgrading to business but Delta said we had to contact Air France in Detroit. When thrre, the gentleman on ground crew was actually rude when I asked about it. He could have just politely told me there was nothing available. Not looking forward to my return flight"
Pros: "Great food (Economy class). Good Service"
Cons: "Not enough bathrooms on Economy class area due to aircraft design."
Pros: "Good seat width Great movie selection Great food and drinks Nice and large A380"
Cons: "The interface of the screens seemed old Need to anticipate the needs of the customer better For example, they brought me my special meal first, but I had to wait 30 minutes later to get a drink to accompany it. The food was getting old. Did not see any newspaper/periodical selection. That would have been nice."
Pros: "I like fly attendant who served us meal"
Cons: "I didn’t like that space between each seat is small"
Pros: "Flight attendant was very nice."
Cons: "We got socked with 40 Euro fees for our carry on plus personal item being 2 lbs over. The biggest problem is they were picking and choosing which bags they weighed. 10 people behind us and before us got in without incident. Plane wasn’t even half full so they were deliberately trying to make more $."
Pros: "La entrada"
Cons: "El resto de cosas"
Pros: "Service was great, flight was on time and I really enjoyed everything"
Cons: "Little turbulence but overall it comes as usual so it was worth the flight"
Pros: "Seat comfort in business class Professional and friendly crew"
Cons: "Food not tasty Limited entertainment even in business class (such small and old screen style) Newspapers available to be much more diversified When is the WiFi going to be available?"
Cons: "Air France lost my luggage and they can't find it in the computer system."
Pros: "Friendly people on board"
Cons: "Crew was not very responsive. It would take over 45 minutes for them to respond to a customer call. Plane landed and we were kept on runway for 1.15 hours and crew only checked in with us twice during that time. People were panicking regarding missing their connections"
Cons: "Business Passngers have to wait in the same bus to board the flight what is the point then...."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled, I was sent around to multiple desks and terminals and no one wanted to assist me, then my luggage was lost."

Pros: "That it was a night flight"
Cons: "No airconditioning, no food choice, no space."
Pros: "All crew I interacted with was great, friendly, and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was late. Boarding very slow. Entertainment was ok by today's standards. Each seat had a display, but movie selection was not great. For a French airline I was looking forward to breakfast -- maybe some nice pastries or at least a decent croissant with jam. None such. It was disappointing. Meals were not impressive either, but the complimentary wine was good."
Pros: "leg space in plane"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The food was really poor. The chicken was as dry as it can be. The food taste was poor. I flow 3 weeks ago with KLM and the food was pretty good for flight food. Plus I didn't get my baggage at the end."
Cons: "Our first leg from Paris was delayed and we missed our flight to Dubrovnik. We then had to hire a car and drive 6 hours to ensure we wouldn't lose a day more of our holiday."
Pros: "The flight was good overall. Friendly crew good attention."
Cons: "There was a delay due to technical dificulties in previous flight. This caused a delay in take off and no AC while waiting in the plane for 40 minutes."
Pros: "It was a short flight."
Cons: "Seat to seat space OK for anyone under 4 ft tall. Pressed intoth seat framein front, I couldn't even turn or get my feet under the seat to extend."
Cons: "Very warm and stiffy air on board. Need change light. Very sad neon. Probably Boing style."

Finally checked COVID docs when at baggage drop or check-in rather than at boarding one by one with an understaffed crew and asking for print-outs, baggage loaded on same plane as owner of said baggage , almost left on time, friendly cabin crew staff (yays across the board)

Amazing staff, and nice comfort flight

Pros: "Great flight and well organised during Covid-19"
Pros: "Flight was cancelled"
Cons: "If flight took place"
Pros: "The crew were gracious and attentive to keeping us hydrated in Economy."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable on this full flight, the food was average."
Cons: "The breakfast scone was disgusting but dinner was great!"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Fly on time"
Pros: "Speed boarding and organized overall. Nice crew."
Cons: "They broke my guitar"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "The food was the worst I have had on a flight. We were crammed into the seats....especially when the seat in front reclines back."
Pros: "Timing was excellent"
Cons: "Never took the flight because BA would not rebook me on a later flight after delays on their side caused me to miss my original flight, even though there were seats available on the later flight. This cost me a lot of time and money, but BA made out like bandits -- selling my original seat, and then selling out the next flight (because the delay!). Nice rip-off."
Pros: "BA always has a wonderful crew and I really enjoy flying with them!"
Cons: "One of my bags didn’t arrive. Hopefully it will be delivered to me as they promised ☹️"
Pros: "The crew are working really hard to make do with what they have. Exceptional service almost makes up for the dated fleet."
Cons: "Tiny entertainment screens, no USB, really BA- how long will you keep running these 777’s for?"
Pros: "Because the flight was an hour late we missed our connection from London to Chicago. Was a day late getting home!"
Cons: "No free juice and water. Everything is for purchase. No seatback entertainment. No internet."
Pros: "For the most part the crew was attentive, kind, sweet, and overall wonderful. Food was good. Great options for vegetarians. Loved the ice cream as snack:). Clean sealed blankets. Loved the movie and tv options. For the most part very happy with service, cleanliness, pilot keeping us informed of delays or anything going on with the flight. Leg space on coach was difficult for tall people and my son's tray table tilted to where he had to put blankets underneath to keep it straight and avoid further spillage."
Cons: "Again the crew has to be informed regarding disabilities. This time an attendant did not allow me to leave my one window closed and said it was due to security and asked to wrap a blanket around my head. Really??? Light streaming into my window was blinding, no time to adjust to the surroundings, light just came through everywhere. Headache ensued even shielding my eyes with the blanket. At least my family helped guide me out. Though head injury is not a visible condition it is still a disability which requires consideration and must not be treated lightly. I perform due diligence to address my disability without extra assistance outside of my family....I only asked for my one window to remain closed. There is still light around enough for people to see more than adequately. This incident is the reason for the 3 stars...because of one crew member...instead of the deserved 5 for everyone else."
Pros: "They exceeded my expectation. The food. The crew. The comfort. I rarely slept on the plane. But this time I did. Wider leg room and comfortable seats.."
Cons: "The service on the plane. And with the long 8 hour flight they gave great food service."
Pros: "The cabin crew were very nice, pilot announcements clearly audible"
Cons: "Check-in/bag drop area at Berlin TXL is poorly organized. Need an attendant to help with line management. No free snack on board — not even a peanut or a pretzel! Purchase only."
Cons: "Delays and overbooked flights"
Cons: "I am 6.4 and don’t especially find bulk head seats very comfortable."
Pros: "Quick flight, drinks available."
Cons: "I recall a snack being served on my first BA London-Belfast flight. Apparently that’s no longer done?"
Pros: "Flight was on time, check-in easy, personnel friendly. Good experience."
Cons: "mybroken seat"
Pros: "In flight entertainment is awesome but we left an hour late! Love BA though, wish American Airlines would take a note."
Cons: "Late"
Cons: "Food quality was mediocre, choices limited"
Cons: "Late BA flight made sure I had to wait 7 hours to catch and EVA air flight. I want my money back. I paid 1000 to flight British Airways not to be crammed on a flight as a show away. Super uncomfortable seat on EVA and a terrible experience. I fell on the plane."
Pros: "Most things"
Cons: "Luggage took forever to be delivered in Newark--one of the longest waits I've ever experienced."
Pros: "Crew was late due to Thanksgiving traffic. The Crew was then very rude during the flight and unapologetic for what has to be the most ridiculous reason for a flight delay I have ever experienced. If a passenger had that excuse, do you think the airline would wait for the passenger? Lame."
Pros: "Everything was absolutely spot on except for larger than average people not being catered for."
Cons: "Being a big lad (6'6") it was difficult to get comfortable even with the extra leg room."
Pros: "Flight left Seville on time, and landed 10 mins early. Friendly crew. Marks and Spencer food available to buy on flight. Reasonable vegetarian options available - thank goodness. Didn't have to pay for extra leg room in exit aisle - probably because no-one had bought them when I checked in at airport. Would definitely recommend."
Cons: "Only downside is crew member in Seville at the airport gate could not be understood. She spoke English with such a thick Spanish accent and intonations that no-one understood what she was saying on the speaker. She also sounded as if she was arguing, as opposed to inviting us on board in a welcoming and orderly fashion. Although at times funny, it ultimately translated into a lot of noise on her part, and a headache on my part."
Pros: "Lovely crew"
Cons: "We never have enough seating space"
Pros: "flight on time"
Cons: "hard to check in to BA in Helsinki. signage could be better as this was a code share."
Cons: "The foot rest broken and I told them they don't do anything even I have bad knees"
Cons: "1 hour delay on return journey on a packed flight, but at least that delay was in the airport and not sitting on a plane"
Pros: "Fold-down head rests"
Cons: "No tuck box"
Pros: "The team on board is always trying their best and work hard to make it comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost an hour after boarding which isn't the end of the world but to sit on the plane is worst than waiting for it. They had one disabled customer who screamed all night and to be honest, again, not much you can do about it but it kept everyone awake on an overnight flight. Would've been nice if they had handled the customer."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Seats not comfortable"
Pros: "Crew is very helpful, friendly and attentive"
Cons: "Long delay sitting at Heathrow - not the fault of the airline, but discouraging. Seats are tight."
Pros: "Great service & crew. Food good for aircraft food"
Cons: "Half hour delay but no big deal actually. Could have done with more leg room, but again flight was e cellent price"
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and helpful. My only complaint is the turbulence, but there's nothing hat can be done about that."
Pros: "Although there were some problems with the arrival of the flight into Gatwick, the captain came along the cabin explaining the difficulties and offering his sincerest apologies (although it was not his fault, nor the fault of BA). This was truly a British response to something like this. Also, I paid for a seat with extra legroom and the space I had was massive - well worth the investment for a 12+ hour flight."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic in Lima. It really can't be that hard to organize different lines for different parts of the plane."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants, comfy seats"
Cons: "No beverages service. They went right by us."
Cons: "I think it's a real shame that BA have gone budget and no longer offer complimentary food on their shorter haul flights. At least they're using M&S though."
Pros: "Got food poisoning from flight or Italian restaurant at terminal 3"
Pros: "Whenever they transferred me to Iberia airways"
Cons: "Departure ticket problem (they were never issued) - delayed flight from Madrid to London -missed my connection -delayed flight from London to atl -sadistic and uninformed staff at the London airport, they literally laughed at my face! -stuck in D.C. For the night because there are no more connections to atl due to (again) delayed flight. -outdated aircraft. -no available internet -not even phone chargers. Never will fly with British airways or buy ticket through kayak."
Cons: "My sound in the movie didn't work as the headphone jack wouldn't work. It made the movie unwatchable."
Cons: "One flight attendant had so much perfume on every time she stopped by it was drowning our sinuses."
Pros: "Up and down in all the right places and we were on time."
Cons: "Food was unimpressive to say the least. And the entertainment system was awful, the movie would frequently stop and was pixilated. Weird for a new 777."
