Cons: "Don't call it "food." the meals were terrible. Also stop creating so much single use plastic."

Cons: "Slight problem at first with entertainement at my seat that did not work ,but a crew member restarted it and it worked fine after that."
Pros: "We left an overcoat on the plane after the long flight and did not realize our area until we were in the baggage claim area. The Delta agent in Paris was most helpful. He went above and beyond to retrieve our coat. Good job Delta!"
Pros: "Friendly service, smooth flight"
Cons: "Some seats were double booked, which was not realized until the plane was fully boarded, which caused very late departure, which almost caused us to miss our connection in Paris. Also the bathroom became a mess - slow to restock toilet paper, etc."

Cons: "The only complaint was the extreme use of air conditioning that made it a necessity to use many blankets to keep warm from freezing."

Pros: "Before we even boarded, the ticket agent happily found two seats together for my husband & I. The in-flight staff was particularly helpful.

Pros: "Lots of great food n free new movies! Crew was polite and on top of their stuff :)"
Pros: "A woman who spoke no English or French was seated next to me last minute with a baby who cried the whole flight. The woman hit me several times, waking me up, while trying to get the baby to stop crying. Talk about a red eye"

Pros: "Newer plane, crew was amazing, seats were adjustable"
Cons: "Don’t be late"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"

Pros: "Seat comfortable"

Cons: "Seat pitch could've been more. At least let us know via Whatsapp that the plane is delayed, or at which belt the bags would come out. This basic info was lacking."

Pros: "Once aboard the plane, all went well and I experienced excellent service from the cabin attendants."
Cons: "The flight was delayed (again!) for some 40 minutes and I was worried that I would miss my connection flight in Atlanata. Fortunately the pilot made up for the delay (probably costing the airline thousands in fuel). It seems these days that every KLM flight I take is delayed. This stretch goes back to 2015! Yet KLM prides itself as being punctual. Not the KLM that I have been flying!"
Cons: "Turn the lights on early making it hard to sleep"
Pros: "Crew was in a festive mood, the meal was unexpectedly delicious"
Cons: "Seats ok, but could be more comfy"
Pros: "The flight AMS to MEX was smooth, very helpful personnel on board, we enjoyed a bit more space and the seat seemed a bit more comfortable."
Cons: "Besides the seat relative comfort, it did not recline much at all, i wondered what the extra money (at least $5 or $600) got us. The food, wine/ beer service was same as regular economy, the boarding took place at same time as economy, no drink before take-off if only sparkling water. And the plane was old generation 747 and the entertainment was same vintage: screen was not very bright and the selection of films was poor. No plug to charge electronics. We were disappointed with KLM when comparing with other airline companies offerings when you book in Premium Economy."
Pros: "Gaps between seats are very narrow."
Cons: "when serving drinks, cabin crew limited to serve liquor only once and it was poor service."
Cons: "wasn't able to take the flight since I missed it"

Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."
Pros: "Everything excellent. Comfortable seats in business."
Cons: "Nothing good to say about this flight. The plane was old with no entertainment. The sits where very compact and not comfortable at all. The food was a sweet bread and water. The flight attendants were rushing and will take a while if you needed anything. I felt like I was taking a bus with graffiti all over the place."
Pros: "The leg room, was surprisingly roomy"
Cons: "The food and that there was no entertainment."
Cons: "We did not get two of baggage at the destination."

Cons: "there was no lounge close to our departure gate"
Pros: "Nice flight, nice crew, and a nice experience."
Pros: "Flight crew was fine. Food was good."
Cons: "Checking in was extensive for unaccompanied minor. But gate crew was very unnattentuve and though we showed up as first in line, they did not focus, and kept saying to wait. Ultimately our son was last person on the plane."
Pros: "Food was good and crew members were very nice"
Cons: "My check in luggage was in very bad condition when I receive it. My clothes were all wet and they got bab by each other’s colour. Many clothes are not in a condition to wear now. Those were expensive and I had a big loss because of that."
Cons: "Missing wheel chairs swrvice lounge far away no food option just lame klm tipique"
Cons: "old plane, tight and uncomfortable"
Cons: "Terrible service in flight and customer service wise .. app functionality was below"

Pros: "Very good flight, excellent service and good food."
Cons: "seats on Jet air flight are very uncomfortable"
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: "Overall, good flight"
Cons: "Completely none sense to change the time of départure (30 min earlier) with just a simple email 24h before and w/o sending a text on mobile phone."
Pros: "There's almost no padding to them and they're very narrow. I know it's nothing new but I'll keep complaining until something changes, if ever."
Cons: "The crew was wonderful, the food was extremely good for economy cabin standards."
Pros: "I flew with multiple international airlines this summer and KLM was by far the best. The crew of KLM were exceptionally attentive, polite, and helpful. The meals were by far the most enjoyable of my airplane travel meals; and I learned that KLM does not charge for it's drinks on international flights, unlike most other international airlines that I traveled with this summer. In a sentence, flying with KLM was a very pleasant experience and I will recommend this airlines to others."
Cons: "If I were going to list any negatives, I would say that the little travel pillow that was given to the passengers was so thin that it was practically useless, but I brought my own with me, so I was none the less comfortable."
Pros: "New plane, new seats, new entertainment system. All very goo to great. The dinner was above average in terms of taste but the breakfast was pretty ordinary."
Cons: "Breakfast food wasn't very good."
Pros: "On time, courteous crew, decent food."
Cons: "Leg room."
Pros: "See below"
Cons: "US Storm response exposed problems. Italian operation only open for minimal hours, British web site would not accept US phone number For contact ( despite provision to do so). US 24 x 7 800#. Responsive and helpful after several frustrating hours attempting to deal with cancilation/rebooking issues in Italy and UK"
Cons: "The flight was extremely delayed. The staff at the Chicago airport acted arrogantly when addressing passengers. A $12 voucher was issued however there were only 3 places open at that time and not only were they very far away from the gate, but the lines quickly grew to be longer than many passengers were willing to wait. Beyond this, when passengers did go to ask for an update they were quickly forced to take a voucher instead of any information and if they tried to refuse it on account of the extremely long lines, the phrase "go get something to eat and relax. We are giving you this voucher." was repeated until the passenger gave up and relented. I then was met by a team of flight attendants who were as annoyed as we were, and not only did they announce the fact that they were "as annoyed as we were" but that we should remember that and not take it out on them. The request to not "take it out on the crew" was made at least 4 times during the flight, including upon landing in a way that made it seem as though the passengers were children in need of reprimand. This treatment made an already uncomfortable delay much worse. Beyond this, I was extremely disappointed to find that my flight on British Airways was being flown by American Airlines without being advertised. I have not flown with AA since my last poor experience on an international flight with them, and I am sad to say that due to this experience I will not be choosing to fly British Airways unless I can be sure there will not be a flight with American Airlines."
Pros: "The service on board was great."
Cons: "British airways need to clean their aircraft inside. Small dirty details but overall was good."
Pros: "Flight attendants helpfulness. the entertainment accessibility and variety"
Cons: "the seat condition. Failure to communicate seat conditions. The food was OK."
Pros: "we were stranded in aberdeen due to flooding and were to miss our connection to vietnam. we were expecting the worst when we called BA but the service representative could not have been more helpful or efficient. she had us booked in the next couple of days all the way to our door. she was positive and we could tell she really cared about our plight."
Cons: "cramped seats, but that is cattle all over"
Pros: "Left on time, toilets clean, good food and drink service, comfortable flight."
Cons: "Plane was moving and luggage holders above our heads were still open, the safety demonstration didn't come on as the entertainment system didn't work."
Pros: "I have flown British Airways in the past and have found it to be very good. This time, I felt cramped. No place to put my luggage. Uncomfortable during the entire flight. The food was okay and the service was very good."
Cons: "These long haul flights are getting more and more cramped."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Seat space was too small for an international flight. Meals seemed VERY cheap and low quality and left me hungry still. Touch screens on monitors did not work. Headphones for monitors did not work well either. Luggage was lost for 3 days with no contact on status updates. Overall not a good experience, would much rather fly with another airline for my next international flight. I fly internationally very frequently and this was the worst experience I've had so far."
Pros: "However im still missing my checked luggage."
Pros: "They were not stingy about alcohol."
Cons: "I had called the airline ahead of time for a bassinet seat. On 31st Dec not so many people fly with babies. There were only 2 babies including mine, but they still had just one bassinet seat and one high chair. The high chair was a ridiculous option. Very uncomfortable for an infant. In spite of calling and requesting ahead of time, no bassinet seat. I have traveled in other airlines and they have been far more accommodating. Seats were very uncomfortable and service was very poor. Coffee/tea served was not hot. So overall very bad experience and I am possibly never taking BA again."
Pros: "The directness of the flight, and being able to watch the monitors to track the trip! The flight was on-time and we got swiftly on and off the aircraft."
Cons: "There was a family behind me working out their issues loudly speaking to each other across the aisle and over my seat. I wish the flight attendants has regulated them a bit more, but I understand that they're busy attending to passengers as a whole!"
Pros: "Departure was on time and the crew members were exceptional."
Cons: "There was nothing about this trip not to like."
Cons: "The entertainment screen didn't work"
Pros: "Everything went without a hitch!"
Pros: "courtesy of crew,meals,movie"
Cons: "being stuck in the basement of Heathrow airport because connecting flight information was not available. The necessity of several transfers of wheelchairs, carts etc."
Pros: "I appreciated the quality and curtsey of the attendants and the overall class that is their national characteristic. the meals were pleasant, the complimentary beverage selection was superb, and the aircraft amenities up to the best standards, even in coach."
Pros: "Very cramped and terrible food. Entertainment was very limited much better on other airlines."
Pros: "Everything was as good as I could hope for on an economy flight."
Cons: "Food was appalling. One male attendant showed no interest in the passengers, actually seemed very bored with us all"
Pros: "I loved the personal entertainment screen and the USB port, it made the flight go by so much faster!!"
Pros: "The boarding attendant almost made me miss the flight over what I had already confirmed I.e traveling using an extension to a green card. Coaching needed on the topic."
Pros: "Wow, if I was treated this well in coach I cannot imagine what business and first class are like. Excellent flight and service."
Pros: "Everything was awesome."
Pros: "The food was pretty bad, not what I am used to with British Airways."
Cons: "After everyone was boarded in the plane, the pilot announced that a fuel pump was broken and that they would try to fix it. 2 and half hours later, the pilot announced they couldn't fix it and that a new one would have to come from London to San Francisco to replace it (as if the only place to get decent plane parts was London)!!!! The plane was rescheduled to fly the next day at 18.00. It didn't actually leave until after midnight, causing us to miss our connecting flights not just once, but again the next day. Communication by British Airways about what was going on and when we could expect to fly was awful throughout, and their customer service was worse than abysmal. I will avoid flying BA in the future."
Cons: "the man from the crew. he was mean"
Pros: "A packed flight with some very rude customers who were dealt with very professionally by the staff"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by over an hour due to a late arriving flight. Missed our original connecting flight"
Pros: "Flight crew was outatanding, service was a huge step above domestic flights! Seattle gate supervisor insisted I check my carry on bag, after I had carefully measured it and my backpack to make sure I could carry both on. She assured me one of my bags would get taken in London before our connecting flight., and then I might never see it again. She wouldn't hear of measuring the backpack. Which was apparently the problem. When I got to London, my backpack was in fact tagged as being acceptable size! Fortunately, the rest of British Airways staff have their act together and one person didn't ruin an otherwise great experience."
Pros: "-good food -nice crew -good movies"
Cons: "-little space in the economy cabin comapared to other airlines; -not much diversity for music"
Pros: "Other than it being too warm, all else was excellent."
Cons: "It was uncomfortably warm, many complaints from other passengers, never improved."
Pros: "The meals were great and the leg room was nicer than expected"
Pros: "It's a huge sardine can with smaller seats than the A320. More people means frustrated staff. Overhead luggage space is severely reduced. Makes me wish I was on a DC-9."
Cons: "Staff spoke amongst each other in a different language. Saw staff picking teeth, picking nose,joking and laughing while we were cattle in their way. I must endure a return flight but it will be my last A380 flight."
Pros: "Airbus 380 is just a larger sardine can. BA fills it as much as possible, little room. Food was so and so, arrived half frozen.... BA has gone down from what it used to be."
Pros: "The crew was lovely and the food options were good. I love that the flight included free drinks and food."
Cons: "We had three seats in and a row. One of the seats was missing a cushion which made it very uncomfortable for the entire flight."
Cons: "Too short time for connecting flight resulted in missing my connection. BA decided to try a new software system on a high travel date which resulted in an hour delay. Many passengers missed their connecting flights."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful, the movie selection was nice, and the flight was comfortable."
Cons: "The food left room for improvement, as did the boarding procedures."
Cons: "sets it was very small"
Pros: "Served veg food as requested by me"
Cons: "Eating non veg food by compass enter very closely If possible create a vegetarians zone"
Pros: "The flights were on time, boarding proceeded with no glitches, enterteinment was great and the crew very attentive."
Cons: "security process was slow because they did not have enough people"
Pros: "Airbus 380"
Pros: "empty seat next to mine good entertainment system Food wasn't horrible"
Cons: "As always, ended up with an AA plane. Seats were weirdly short. Seatbelt was too short to allow me to comfortably lie down in the empty seat next to mine Not nearly enough water - they didn't come through at all between dinner and breakfast"
Pros: "Attentive crew!"
Cons: "The food selection is just horrid."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 3 hours due to maintenance issues due to which my international connecting flight in London was missed. We were given meal vouchers 15 minutes before the plane was ready for boarding and by then, all the restaurants had already closed at Chicago airport. So we were forced to either not eat anything, or use the vouchers at 1 restaurant that was on the brink of shutting, that could not provide any food, but provided some drinks and packets of chips only."
Pros: "Legroom good, entertainment system had a vast choice of films, TV and music, food tasty. Seats very comfortable. Very pleasantly surprised."
Cons: "Service was infrequent and not enough water to passengers on a long flight"
Cons: "Had to turn around and land in Chicago because of presumed medical emaergency, which did not appear that urgent. Missed connecting flights"
