Pros: "Excellent crew. Very good food. Comfortable seats."

Pros: "Great crew, as usual."
Cons: "Ugh, The seat in front of me had some box taking up 1/4 of my leg-room. I get that the box probably contains some crucial equipment, but can you at least round the edges so I can lay my leg against it without cutting off my circulation to my foot? Other than that, typical Qatar luxury (as much as you're gonna find in coach)."

Cons: "Food is good but should have option of healthy sides (steam or sauteed vegetables dor example). Too much potato. One flight attendant with an attitude can affect overall experience. Not sure if because of inexperience or just the wrong way to approach customers. I could tell this person was struggling trying to be genuinely nice. Complicated process to upgrade from economy to business"
Pros: "Good entertainment choices"
Cons: "One of the rudest check-in staff I have ever dealt with"
Pros: "Qatar is quite possibly the best airline in the world, especially on its long haul flights. It is heads above the other two major Persian Gulf airlines. All the employees with whom I dealt were excellent and customer-oriented. The planes between Doha and London were new, had more space than older planes and had an excellent selection of movies and TV shows. I ordered special meals on all the flights, and I was very satisfied. I have been a fan of Qatar Airways since I flew it to Australia in 2011. It continues to do a superb job, even in Economy."

Pros: "Comfortable flight, friendly flight attendants, food, usb port to charge my phone, and the in-flight entertainment"
Pros: "This was my first flight with Turskis Airlines and my best experience with flying to Europe. The food was excellent; we had two hot delicious meals (best airplane food I ever had).

Pros: "Turkish airlines is the worst of the worst."
Pros: "Amazing service and comfortable environment. The really take care of you"
Cons: "Boarding Process could be a little streamlined. Guess we are used to the regulated process"

Cons: "Connection was too long to Dubai"

Pros: "It was to hot on the plane , I told them 3 times and still nothing chaged .... I don't think I fill fly with them on the future."
Pros: "Food and entertainment system were amazing. Everything else was at the level of good international airlines. Not at the Singapore Airlines level but far better than US carriers and at the British Airways, Qantas level"

Cons: "Seats are kind of small and narrow on economy class but I guess that's in most airlines."
Cons: "Poor Food quality which caused food poisioning"
Pros: "A real plug under each seat - great to work on a 14h flight seat pitch better than most airlines No-fuss attitude makes things easier in general"
Cons: "cleanliness is a different standard from, say, Lufthansa but not botheringly so. Turkish telecom wastes your time in trying to get on the Istambul Airport wifi - impossible."
Pros: "The touch screens and little care packages we got once we were on the plane were great. The food was really good, too, but they ran out of one dinner option before it got to half the plane."
Cons: "The entry to the plane in Istanbul was complicated--double checking at the gate for security and then also the boarding entry. The lines were crowded and disorganized and began late. After we were on the runway, we actually turned around and went back to the gate to let one sick passenger off. the flight attendants went up and down the aisles multiple times opening bins and asking people if the luggage was theirs or not before we could leave the gate again. It was really disorganized and bizarre. The flight itself was fine. The flight attendants weren't overly friendly, and they were missing during longer stretches, leaving passengers to find refreshments on their own. Beyond that, things were thankfully uneventful."
Pros: "Great airline but the food is restaurant worthy."
Pros: "In flight entertainment system offered a wide selection of movies and games, as well as flight info. Good frequency of"
Cons: "Not much leg room in the seats. Bad gate setup, multiple security checks before boarding and having to go in a bus to the actual plane. This might be the airports fault more than the flight."
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "food was served cold i had flown them before and the food was good , this time is was terrible - basically not edible, so during that very long flight I ate almost nothing and to top it off the food was served cold staff did not speak english well at all"
Pros: "Very friendly crew relatively comfortable airplane some of the best food up in the sky"
Cons: "had to board bus from terminal to airplane. too many checkpoints from security lines to the plane. some of those you can understand in a plane heading to the US. BUT some of them are totally useless and unnecessary. alos putting too many stickers on your passport. Turkish have to keep in mind that if every airport has done the same my passport will be covered up with stickers by now."
Pros: "Entertainment system was great. I asked for an extra legroom seat when checking in (because I'm 6ft+), and this request was entertained for both me and my wife."
Cons: "The 2nd meal didn't have any protein and didn't taste very good. The seats are generally tight for anyone who is taller than 6 ft."
Pros: "Although a fairly long journey, we were all very comfortable and treated very well by the staff."
Pros: "I liked the flight attendants. They were all VERY pleasant and accessible. They were all service oriented and felt that they honestly wanted to ensure that they flight was as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "Total chaos boarding. It was hoarding cats in a pen. NO organization what so ever. The serving of the food was a nightmare.... the food was served in sections. the hot plate first ... 5 minutes later... the hot bread... then yet another 5 minutes later... the drink. No water to be had. Was in the air for a full 5 hours before they brought the cart around for water/refreshments. Horrible."
Pros: "I thought the crew was very good and more helpful and friendly than the average cabin crew."
Pros: "The crew and food were good"
Cons: "Connection in Istanbul is bad. Lines were long and not orderly. Bad experience overall. Flight out of Istanbul was late. The reading light did not work. The crew was very nice and service was good. Again, luggage did not arrive. This time 2 out of 2 pieces. One piece arrived a day later the second took more than 48 h."
Pros: "Lost luggage"
Cons: "They cancelled my seat because of overbooking but they can not explain why? I was able to change my ticket two days later. Unexperienced staff, such a caos at the thy counters."
Pros: "I liked the coach video screens and entertainment system. Screens are large and easy to use, as is the touch screen interface. Lots to choose from. Good system! FAs very friendly and helpful. Quality staff on board my flight."
Cons: "My IST - SFO leg was VERY long. Considering the length of the flight, nowhere near enough water was handed out. About 3 hours into the journey a single pass was made through the cabin offering bottles of water but that was the only time it happened in a 13 hour flight. FAs were happy to give water - in single doses in a cup when asked but service could be improved. Better service would include 3 passes through the cabin at regular intervals offering full bottles of water and not just a cup."
Cons: "Seats 24a/b were next to exit door. Airplane is pumping out cold air literally right next to your feet. Crew was not willing to change temperature. Was not willing to offer comparable seats somewhere else in the plane despite having space. So, we were cold despite layers of blankets throughout the 13 hours of flight."
Pros: "Awesome access to English movies that made a 13 hour flight from Istanbul to SFO bearable. There was more space than most coach seats and their 2-bags free checking policy meant there were fewer lines in the aisles and more room in the overhead compartments. Being used to US airlines, having two meals and a wide range of free beverages (including fresh-squeezed OJ and wine) was a treat."
Cons: "My only complaint would be the lack of any US TV programs among the many video offerings on the longer flight -- there was no video on the 2-hour connecting flight. The food on both flights was just OK, but it had a smattering of lots of East and West so everyone could find something."
Cons: "I traveled on the same airline from SFO to IST 10 days ago and loved it. However, this flight from IST to SFO was terrible. The crew probably was trying to do their best but it didnt work. - I was feeling sick so i pushed the attendant button 4 times to get someone to come by. - When they did come by and I asked for some tea, they got me a lukewarm tea! Seriously. - The toilets - When I used it mid-way, it was terrible. It needed restocking and actual cleaning the pot since the flush couldn't take away all of the solids i guess. Gross."
Cons: "seats too close for comfort...my knees were cramped when the seat in front of me leaned back. i'm only 5'4" so I really felt for the people taller than me...other than that the flight was wonderful..."
Pros: "Everything except that the seats were tight and old."
Pros: "Boarding in SFO and Crow in general"
Cons: "Boarding in Egypt and ground service and support in Istanbul Online service needs to meet as least the other Airline services."
Pros: "Good selection of food offered."
Cons: "Both meals served were cold/warm. Rush delivery with poor execution on heating the food. Also suggest Turkish get Ginger Ale on board. This helps some travelers keep calm."
Pros: "I found TA to be great in every detail--schedules kept, cabins well-appointed, food exceptional. Will use them every time I can from now on."
Pros: "The Crew was amazing!"
Cons: "The boarding was late!"

Cons: "On the counter they have to checked all baggage weight they give hard time on the boarding time to costumer"
Cons: "The food was of very poor quality and no alternatives. Went hungry the entire flight."
Pros: "I was not put on the plane because they said my seat did not existed! I had purchased my ticket 3 months prior to departure and they said I did not have a seat on the plane due to overbooking. They clearly gave my seat away to someone else and this is not acceptable."
Cons: "Ethiad was not helpful at all and did not provide any same day help. They’re customer service was absolutely terrible."
Pros: "Crew are great. Food good. Entertainment selection pretty good."
Cons: "I don't know why but on all Etihad flights I've been on so far (4), I found the seats very uncomfortable. There seems to be no padding on them and hence they are uncomfortable especially on long haul flights."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Having to wait 5-6 hours due to missed flight back to NY"
Pros: "Overall very good The flight attendants were exceptionally professional. It went way beyond taken care of customers."
Cons: "Other customers on the flight were extremely rude, spread the dirty things all over the airplane! Need moreupdated movie selections."
Pros: "Immigration was done at Abu Dabhi"
Cons: "Not much selection on seating 48hr ahead. Getting off the plane for handy cap people was difficult. Not enough leg room for 6ft people."
Cons: "I missed the flight in the airport and when I went to the office in the airport to put me on the next flight they denied help. They asked me to pay the difference. I had to agree but I had not a credit card so they refused to take cash. Spend very frustrating two hours trying to convince the rude employee to put me on the flight... Do not use that airport or that company."
Pros: "Good airline and I like the fact that kids and seniors are boarded first regardless of seating."
Cons: "Food was horrible and most of the time there wasnt an option between veg and non veg even when the flight was mostly empty. Taste was really bad."
Cons: "The cupcake served was eaten by some animal before opening. Have lodged complaint and may send them video."
Pros: "Sitting on a flight for 15+ hours is tough on passengers and crew."
Cons: "Since passengers are flying from international destinations, they should not have to pay for luggage carts - even though they are not clearing customs in San Francisco."
Pros: "Just the movies"
Cons: "They didn't offer any food you have to ask them for and when they brought food they gave me bad food. It was really horrible trip!"
Pros: "Nothing. I would never ever choose Etihad airline again"
Cons: "At Washington Dulles airport the whole staff was really rude and unprofessional. I had only one hand carry and it was 9 kg. I requested them that I can buy a bag and can divide the stuff in two bags. But supervisor who seemed Indian was really racist and he kept insisting that we are flying in 5 minutes. Either you have to pay penalty for this hand carry or you can cancel your flight. I have never ever seen this kind of behavior from anyone specially from a supervisor. I ended up paying $300 extra for only 2 kg extra weight in my hand carry. I would recommend my whole family and friends not to choose this airline anymore."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "The flight had TOo few restrooms. About 4 for 250 people or so. There was at least a 15 minute wait at almost any given time."
Cons: "Cramed. Bad food. NO CONTROL ON SIZE OF LUGGAGE ALLOWED IN CABIN"
Pros: "Air staff was good. Automatic window dimmers. Electronics."

Pros: "Improve your food standard"
Pros: "Warm crew"
Cons: "Some crew were mean"
Pros: "The flight attendants made hand-made Easter cards for all the children on the plane! It was a really nice touch and I've never seen anything like it on another airline."
Cons: "The airline changed our return date for 2 days later! When that date wouldn't work for us, we were re-routed through Chicago with a connection back to SF. The flight times were then changed two more times, and our seats were moved from aisle to middle seats. I do not recommend flying Etihad if you have a schedule to keep to."
Pros: "CREW SERVICE TIMELY NATURE OF FLIGHTS"
Cons: "THE LEG SPACE 1 OF THE MEALS"
Pros: "Liked the staff in the hotel and the official who accompanied me thru Abu Dhabi airport."
Cons: "Had to stay few hours in nearby airport hotel which was not up to the standard I hoped. The connection to other airlines ( for my new boarding pass) was very confusing. I had to get out of LAX to go to AA terminal for my connecting flight to SFO. Then again I had to take an airline transport bus to go to my desired gate."
Cons: "Nothing much of dislike"
Pros: "The flight was on time & the ground crew was courteous."
Cons: "The food was just not appealing ,palak paneer barely had any paneer in it and the sandwich for snack was dry.when I wanted to use the bathroom there was a big puddle on the floor ,I asked the stewardess if it can be cleaned, she decided to bring 5-6 half empty coffee pots to the bathroom & proceeded to dump them in the toilet,after she was done with the dumping procedure she came back with gloves & some cleaner & shut the door to clean up the mess , after she came out I thanked her but she just glared back at me even though I had not left that mess there,I don't think I would be flying Etihad again."
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "In adequate leg room Too strict on luggage weight Crew members were good but need more training to / initiate provide better service that international travelers deserve. Selection of food choices poor and time in between food / beverage services were too long"
Pros: "Lacking in Hosiptality"
Cons: "Lacking in Hosiptality"
Cons: "There was a chicken sandwich offered in the middle of the flight that is by far the worst airplane food I've ever had"
Pros: "On time as scheduled. ground staff were very very polite and efficient ."
Cons: "I have flown in Cathay , Singapore , KLM . lufthansa as I go to Calcutta every year for last 25 years . Never had a 16 and half hrs flt with only one full meal . It should be 3 full meals. Both ways had totally unsophisticated cabin crews . Needs education and training . A basic term like scotch on the rocks needed four explanations . No clue about beer whatsoever . OK for Saudia not for gulf countries. Village girls in an uniform."
Pros: "Staff was good, business class lounge was nice. Ground crew was very good."
Cons: "Business class seat not nearly as nice as Singapore Airlines. Food was good, limited options. The entertainment options were good, not great. On flight to India, there was onboard wifi and live news (CNN, etc). On flight back, there was not onboard wifi and live news coverage."

Pros: "Courtesy of crew, food and cleanliness"
Cons: "Seats were smaller in size. However, legroom was fine for me."

Cons: "I didn't like they seperated me and my friend with different seat assignments."
Pros: "Etihad airways is amazing! The business class is top notch, the flight attendants were wonderful and provided amazing service without even being asked. I would recommend this airline to everyone."
Cons: "All ok"
Cons: "The comfort for a long haul flight is never great, but the seats were exceptionally small and cramped (and I am a small person). The in flight internet I purchased but was unable to use after being charged for more that one email -- it went out and stayed out. $22 down the lost unless I can get refunded, which I have requested. If Etihad doesn't refund me, I will be taking it up with Paypal as well as other review sites and business channels."
Cons: "The check in agent missed to give me a tag for my hand luggage When ground crew at the gate didn't see the tag they placed it in a cage and a scale it was underweight & within dimensions, the wheel however was sticking out of the cage and for that it was $300 charge!! Let alone the humiliation.. It was pay in 5 mins or you will be booted off... I swear I found another family almost crying as they coming from a connecting flight didn't go through the check in desk and paid $1200 I have been using same handbag on airlines including etihad for 5 years without any problems ... Go figure"
Cons: "Bathrooms became filthy."
Cons: "They were out of vegetarian sandwiches and don't substitute it with anything else. They should be extra careful with vegetarian options. Meal quality can improve a bit in general."
Pros: "Food entertainment."
Cons: "Baggage rules."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very good."
Cons: "Add more Telugu movies for flights from Hyderabad."
Pros: "Entertainment was a little better than usual, but could have had more current movies. Food was OK. Nothing special, but more than acceptable. I like the ice cream. Although we had a late start, we got to San Francisco pretty much on time."
Cons: "I don't like being scrunched in a little seat for 10 or 11 hours, but then I am not willing to pay for a bigger seat and more leg room."
Cons: "My flight never happened due to the cancellation."
Pros: "Great crew, very friendly"
Cons: "Prior to departure, we were told to check in our carry-on luggage due to flight overbooking..... Turned out that there were lots of overhead compartments/bins were totally empty. We were not prepared for that so cluld not pack personal items accordingly"
Pros: "The air plane ran out of fuel we had to divert to San Jose we waited two hours because of weather and because the paperwork had the wrong pilots name so they wouldn't let the plane fly. Therefore we waited in the airport all night because neither British airways or American Airlines would help us We waited here all night with no sleep no one would give us a hotel or a meal we have now will be getting into London 24 hours later than planned and we will be out about $1000 in hotels in two hours we had booked that were non-cancelable . Multiple phone calls to British airline Waze and to American Airlines for all of the helpful"
Pros: "Flight crew was incredibly nice and professional. They were particularly attentive to another passenger that had food allergies. The seats were comfortable, with neck support and low back pillows. The over-intercom announcements were just enough to keep passengers aware of relevant info. There were lots of entertainment choices on the tv in the back of the seat. The first meal was really good (pasta). Thank you for a great flight."
Cons: "The boarding gate was not announced until very close to boarding time and boarding seemed a bit of a free-for-all. The second meal/ 'hot snack' of a pizza pocket was gross."
Cons: "Wasn't allowed to check in prior to flight and got 2 middle seats on a A380"
Pros: "Economy window seat on A380 has extra storage unit underneath window (similar to business class). This was really convenient. Still some room underneath seat in front but entertainment box would block large items. Quiet flight no unnecessary announcements from crew. Boarding was ok as I am a priority member."
Cons: "Food is not as good as some other economy flights I have taken. Entertainment (movies) were ok but not great."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Not much space. Seats were too narow."
Pros: "Lots of movies, excellent quality."
Cons: "Very crowded, otherwise okay."
Cons: "The lady at the check in counter changed the seat I paid to reserve from the front to the back of the plane without informing me"
Pros: "Entrees were OK"
Cons: "Not nearly enough snacks. They were pretty much out in business class half way through the flight"
Pros: "Amazing flight - Crew was attentive and helpful"
Pros: "The seat was nice and movies onboard were entertaining."
Cons: "No personal AC vents; one small "meal" in the first hour followed by one small snack of popcorn a few hours later on 11-hour flight made it seem longer."
Cons: "Did not make it. We are still stuck."
Pros: "I like the service and the food it was served."
Pros: "Entertainment selection"
Cons: "Snacks were carb heavy and protein low"
Pros: "Professionalism of ground staff in getting us to our flight Excellent service in the air Great entertainment selection"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "We arrived safely at our destination. Our bags arrived at our destination. Plenty of room in the overhead compartment. Due to a security snafu unrelated to the airline, we arrived at the gate after boarding was over but the gate crew were gracious and welcoming and let us board. The male flight attendant was quite nice. The entertainment screen choices were decent, and the hand-held controller was a great improvement over the touch-screen variety. There were multiple lavatories available. There was a decent amount of space by the lavatories that we could use for stretching and exercising. The wrap they gave us for high tea was pretty good."
Cons: "Seats were very cramped. I was sitting on the right next to the window, and there was no room for me to extend my right leg while facing forward; I had to twist to my left and extend my legs under the middle seat in front of me (fortunately my wife was next to me so I could do this). In addition, the passenger seated in front of me decided to recline his seat, nearly knocking over my drinks in the process, which left me with very little usable space. I haven't ever felt that cramped on an international flight. The main meal was very low quality. I had the pasta and it was quite awful; the sides were quite bad, as well. One of the female flight attendants was rather testy and unpleasant throughout the flight. She, and another female flight attendant, seemed put out when passengers asked questions about the food offerings, as though we should already have known what was being served. One passenger had just woken up and seemed confused and the flight attendant was quite impatient with him. The flight attendants were quite stingy with the water and only poured out a little bit at a time; they also came very infrequently, which meant that we had to keep pressing the call button to ask for more (which made us feel bad about bothering them). They would not give us a whole bottle of water, saying that there was not enough, but did, when we asked, provide multiple plastic cups of water at a time, which just seemed wasteful (of cups, not water). The timing of drink service was also perplexing: they did not offer drinks at least 45 minutes before or after bringing the boxes of salty "movie snacks"."
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 this connecting flight. Other people were in the same boat. We had no chance to make our connection but others did. While the flight crew offered weak apologies advising they had no control, they made no effort to help connecting passengers in ways the could control. Such as asking all passengers to remain seated allowing connecting passengers off the plane first. Something I've seen done on many other airlines numerous times."
Cons: "It was difficult to get our seat assignments."
Pros: "Loved it all"
Cons: "no wifi"
Pros: "This was my first time on an Airbus A380 and I must say that I'm still in awe of how an aircraft this large can be so quiet and smooth, let alone get in the air. Boarding was smooth. Entertainment was great and the food (depending on what you got) was okay. The inflight crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "Economy seats are very uncomfortable. I am 6'4 and there isn't that much space. It's even worse when you have a kid sitting in front with his seat reclined all the way back - so the little room I had to start with became even worse. Not to mention he kept rocking his chair back in forth, passed gas about 5 times, felt the need to stretch his arm behind him 3 times so his hand was blocking my screen. I really never got comfortable in my seat during the 11 hour flight. For a plane this large, i would of expected a little bit more comfort, especially when I felt it on AA 777"
Cons: "Couldn't even get a cup of coffee on the flight without a fee. Even on a short flight, you should be able to get water/tea/coffee..."
Pros: "Nothing to talk about. Entertainment had many choices"
Cons: "Food was pathetic"
Pros: "Although they left late , they made up for it and arrived only 5 min late. Although a huge plane, the boarding process worked out fine. Service was good and entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "Food could be a bit better,"
Pros: "Cancel my flightthey canceled my flight and provided absolutely no help in getting me another flight. I was left stranded in the middle of Italy"
Cons: "they canceled my flight and provided absolutely no help in getting me another flight. I was left stranded in the middle of Italy"
Pros: "Food and Drink were good!"
Cons: "My husband and I weren't seated together. No matter how we try to change or ask for it even before check-in we couldn't change our seat locations. I am 5 months pregnant and it was not comfortable not having husband close to me, when in case of emergency I need something and he is not able to help right away."
Pros: "The food and entertainment met our expectations. The crew was attentive and provided good service throughout our flight."
Cons: "I prepaid for 3 seats in the front row of a coach section according to the diagram provided when I paid $75 per seat to reserve them. If I had known we would be placed back a row and not able to be more comfortable I would not have paid that fee. I do feel as though I was scammed for the $225 for reserving the seats."
Pros: "BA crew was amazing--friendly, courteous, helpful. There was always plenty of food--most of it good, and they certainly kept us hydrated with trays of juice. Free everything: wine, movies, music, etc"
Cons: "There was nothing different that could have been done. We had a 5 hour layover after our flight from Shannon. That was ok because we ate, shopped and generally used the time. But we were 1/1/2 hours late taking off, then had to wait to land because we were out of order for the gates. It turned into a 23 hour day."
Pros: "LOVED the hospitality of the crew, the food was great and they feed you a lot on the flight- my guess is to quell the anxieties of flying over the atlantic LOL. Flight to SFO from London was smooth."
Cons: "The seats are intensely uncomfortable. I upgraded to emergency exit this flight and still no room. Also, would be amazing if there was WiFi (even if for parts of the flight and not the entire flight). 11 hours is a long time to listen to same songs on your ipod lol."
Pros: "Airbus 380 - smooth and quiet"
Cons: "nothing it was good"
Pros: "Fantastic service and entertainment. One of my best flights in years."
Cons: "1st service was good. Second just ok."
Pros: "Crew was great and very helpful."
Cons: "The air pressure in the cabin didn't seem right, feet were swollen more than other international flights I have taken."
Pros: "Great service from the whole crew"
Pros: "A very long flight but decent food, good entertainment and leg room surprisingly not bad"
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Pros: "-Crew was very attentive to the passenger who needed medical attention. -Captain spoke clearly and slowly. All crew members were very professional. -Cleaner and bigger WC rooms than most planes I've been on which is always a plus."
Cons: "-Food was mostly bland (e.g. vegetarian lasagna), overly seasoned (e.g. caramel/chocolate pudding dessert) or just not quite good (e.g. cole slaw). Lots of room for improvement here. Thank goodness I'd packed some snacks while we were still in Barcelona. -The earbuds wasn't very good in comparison to other in-flight earbuds I've used from other airlines. Sometimes staticky, noise cancellation was low, and wasn't as comfortable to wear."
Cons: "Each rep we spoke to said they couldnt help us and to just open a support ticket online.. Kept telling us they dont have a customer service team who can help us and its only available online."
Pros: "Great flight staff and meals for coach were excellent. The attendants were so nice and responsive"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The meals are very high in carbohydrates, much of which I and others cannot eat. Please provide healthier choices for all passengers such as fresh fruit, vegetables, cheese and nuts."
Pros: "Seats were cushioned and comfortable, entertainment screens were crisp and colorful, restrooms stayed clean and maintained throughout flight."
Pros: "My husband was entertained with the movies but I felt the selection was limited. The dinner was good but felt we were limited on drinks. Leg space was very good compared to other airplanes. Crew was excellent in getting passengers settled before the flight."
Cons: "The boarding area was too small of a space for so many people. The snack was served to late in the flight. Waiting to get into the bathroom was a bit long."
Pros: "The trip was comfortable and the crew were professional"
Cons: "I liked my experience. No dislike"
Pros: "This was a Boeing 777. Really comfortable, with plenty of leg room, even in coach.. The crew was so polite and helpful. We loved 'em.."
Pros: "The food was good plus drinks"
Cons: "There was no wifi in an 11h flight"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable 6 hour flight I've ever taken. No food or snacks served whatsoever, no entertainment options, flight attendants were curt, not even pillows. This would be OK for a shorter flight, but for 6 hours is ridiculous. This was worse than even the cheapest economy carrier. American Airlines bad service is definitely not what i was expecting booking a flight through British airways, which is consistently top- notch."
Pros: "Plenty of space on Airbus"
Cons: "Crew didn't address complaints, loud party like atmosphere for crew without regard for passengers. The Airbus wobbles when it hits turbulent air, which makes air sickness common."
