Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Everything else was good Crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "A crew member at check in gave me stupid trouble about my computer being inside my carry on. That never happened to me before and it was really awful. No other airlines cares how I store my computer during the flight. He required it being outside the carry on, and I still don't understand why. After a while his colleague let me go with no problem. The seating at the seat had some built in ventilation system or something that took space from space for feet and that was uncomfortable especially in the long flight. That machine could be placed way better. For example on the bottom of the seat 28."

Pros: "Great movie selection. Some of the staff ( only some ) are really nice."

Pros: "The journey was very smooth and I did enjoy the ride."
Cons: "I like everything about the ride. Boarding, food etc. But I wish the stay at the airport could be shorter before my second leg- that is to Nigeria. Having come from Houston and arrived on Sunday, I had to wait for about 18 hours to board the next flight. I did not get a hotel and was not told about it. However, much later when I appeared at the information desk after another passenger had spoken to me, I was referred to a stand which offered me a ticket for a meal that night. Please see what you can do about the waiting time. Thanks again for the lovely ride to Istanbul."
Pros: "Adjustable headrest, choice of foods, inclusion of a phone charger"

Cons: "Old seat broken table for eating !!!! Flight announcements very loud during night"
Cons: "RUDE AND UNCOOPERATIVE STAFF!!! Had the worst flight of my life, and I travel at least twice a year, but have never had such bad an experience!

Cons: "I did not need to check any bags and had already checked-in online, but was forced to wait in line instead of being able to print my ticket from an automated kiosk. Seriously? It's almost 2016. The lines also moved ridiculously slowly, and to add to my consternation, the "online check in" line was serviced by far fewer desks than the normal check-in line. Shouldn't there be an incentive for checking in online? This experience was STUPID AND FRUSTRATING."
Cons: "My carry on was stolen on the flight. The flight crew didn't do anything to help"

Cons: "Space between seats"
Pros: "Delicious food. Incredible entertainment selection of first-run movies and classics – movies I would've gladly paid to see in the theater. Modern plane. Free drinks and wine."
Cons: "Whining children shouting and running through the aisles. Nonstop screaming literally from beginning of the flight to the end from one loud and unhappy child.

Pros: "I wish the airlines, all airlines would keep the middle seat vacant on all flights!! Such a comfortable feeling and flight. I’ve flown multiple times this summer during Covid, having that middle seat vacant has made traveling by air for me a very good, comfortable thing again. Don’t ever go back to packing us in like cattle car flights!!"

Cons: "It wasn’t made clear when special services could board."
Cons: "TVs/outlets on my side and section of the plane were not working."

Cons: "A newer aircraft that doesn't show its age would be nice"
Pros: "Great crew. Good food. On time."
Pros: "Kudos to the employees who really tried to help rather than pay mere lip service."
Cons: "The plane experienced a mechanical issue forcing us to return to the gate after waiting for an hour. The staff was clearly overwhelmed and focused on moving us along (Cheryl) rather than resolving our need to reach our destinations.it wasn’t until we found one extremely patient and persistent employee (LaShondra-?) who booked us through NYC rather than Atlanta so we reached Rochester on the same day. So the questions are- why don’t the airport hold a larger inventory of parts, why aren’t there back up planes and why doesn’t the software better cope with these types of situations?"
Pros: "Fast on the plane"
Cons: "Getting off the plane quicker"
Pros: "Crew was lovely"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours. Both the pilots and flight attendants timed out at different times. After boarding we had to deplane because crew was timing out. Had to fly new crew in from Atlanta. Was in airport from 10:50am to 8pm with airlines offering a bag of chips and water."

Pros: "Terrific service."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Full flight. We weren’t able to chose our seats and were put in middle seats in different rows."
Pros: "Boarding was on time; flight departures on time and arrived earlier than expected! Pilot told us exactly what was the status and gave us updates; cabin was well air conditioned; flight attendants were friendly; bags came out very quick! Very nice flight"
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating and found me a new seat when I requested one."
Cons: "My assigned seat was next to a morbidly obese man. He overflowed his seat and took up at least five inches of my seat. The seats have become so narrow that even an average weight male has trouble fitting his shoulders into the seats."
Cons: "When my flight with American Airlines cancelled, I felt so panicked because I needed to be in Florida on Saturday night. But thankfully, lady who works for American Airlines solved my problem on the phone in couple of minutes easily. After that, when we were boarding to the aircraft, there was a cabin attendant lady. She came to us and ask me and my mother if we can talk English.I answered her with yes we can, but she demands to talk with my mother. And English is not her native language, but it doesn't prove that she doesn't know it. She tried to ask questions to her like, "where were you today?" so we couldn't really understand the reason for her to ask those questions in the first place. So we couldn't really say anything. While we were talking about my mother's English, the all aircraft was watching us, and trying to figure out what was going on. After all, she made us to sit there and wait her to replace us with other passengers. We waited the whole aircraft to be seated, then she took us to another seat with my mother. I can understand that it is her job but I'm not sure, if it had to be that much discomfort. We got pretty upset about it and it affects our flight quality. Plus, while cabin crew serving beverages, they didn't really ask us anything. We needed to call them for our order. To be honest, I would never flight with Delta. It was a disappointment."
Cons: "On time and nice media"
Pros: "The gentleman that was calling zone 1, etc etc. was amazing. I should have grabbed his name. Kept us informed and thanked us and really appreciated our business. He rocked!"
Pros: "The crew did the best they could under the circumstances."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled for 7:45 pm. Due to the storm the day before, my flight out of Miami was cancelled and I was told that the flight out of W Palm Beach was my only option. I paid $150 for an Uber at 4 pm. At 6:37, I got an email with news of a two hour delay. I would’ve appreciated an earlier notice. But much worse was the boarding experience. As half the passengers had boarded, someone announced that we had to have everyone boarded and seated in 5 minutes, or else the crew would time out, and we’d have to stay in WPalm. This set off a frenzy, with seated passengers yelling at the people boarding to hurry!! I was told by the pilot while exiting in LGA, that we made it by 30 seconds! It could’ve been handled so much better!"
Pros: "Smooth take off and landing"
Pros: "I was not able to change seats..."
Pros: "On time; safe flight"
Cons: "Service from boarding to landing was impersonal. No headphones etc. Etc."
Cons: "The flight was an older crew , seem a bit rude sometimes especially during the beverage and meal services. Not all of the flight crew was like that, but the over all feeling existed."
Pros: "Customer service"
Pros: "The stewards and flight was overall fine. In fact I found the stewards to Atlanta from West Palm very accommodating."
Cons: "I have reservation on booking Comfort plus next time I fly though. There appeared to be no difference in the seating or service as economy. A lesson learn I guess. I will atillflyDelta but stick to economy. I saw no perks"
Pros: "Just getting to my destination"
Cons: "Service very poor and seats very uncomfortable"
Cons: "There is just not enough leg room for a flight that long and the seats don't recline enough to be comfortable unless you upgrade and the tickets were already overpriced."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, especially the attendant named Charlie. The cabin was also nice and cold. I hate getting too hot on planes so it was really nice that they had good AC going. Short trip overall and was very pleased!"
Cons: "No complaints!"
Cons: "Flight left late and missed connecting flight in Atlanta. It's 9:30 pm and I'm still stuck in Atlanta airport."

Cons: "Flying :)"
Pros: "Excellent crew. Better drinks in comfort plus BUT NO SCOTCH!! Bummer."

Pros: "All restroom floors were wet. I have seen this in others 767's too. Is this a 767 phenomenon"
Pros: "The flights were on time and the entertainment system worked great."
Cons: "They overbooked (as usual) and bumped me from the Atlanta to Los Angeles leg of my journey. This put me 24 hours behind and cost me hotel money."
Pros: "Love the in flight entertainment. Wouldn't pay an extra fee for it, but love it as a complimentary perk."
Cons: "I do not like that mono do sale me a ticket with no baggage and never will by a ticket from this company again!"
Cons: "Asked for ONE piece of bread, and such a big company. Didn’t have ONE piece of bread to provide. Shame. But not surprised, considering the focus they had with onboard shopping, cut coat, and generate revenue very oriented."
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "I paid for extra space and it looked like the seats I got were the same as all the others"
Pros: "It was short."
Pros: "My luggage never arrived in Munich"
Pros: "Food was good & they served a full meal!"
Cons: "Crew appeared annoyed with everyone. No entertainment provided."
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on-time. Flight attendents were pleasant and helpful. Food portions and choices were good, and Lufthansa is always generous with drinks. Good value for money on Lufthansa."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, as clear instructions were not given about which group was boarding when and where to line up. Also Lufthansa did not do a good job managing carry-on bags, so that it took way too long to load people and many bags were left over once overhead bins were full. Seating area is cramped in economy."
Pros: "The on-board staff were excellent. Please congratulate Lufthansa on another job well done! Very good at listening and very attentive to passenger needs and passenger comfort. Bravo!"
Pros: "The food was excellent."
Cons: "Sitting in the middle. It is always uncomfortable due to the fact that you need to ask the person sitting next to you to get up because you need to use the restroom. Aside from that my overall experience was excellent. The food, entertainment, staff all helpful and friendly."
Pros: "There were many movie choices."
Cons: "The plane was a bit warm."
Pros: "The service was impeccable"
Cons: "It was a bit warm"
Pros: "Nice Crew except when they were not watching where they stepped. Smooth flight."
Cons: "I had a swollen and sprained ankle during the flight, I had it resting near the aisle to stretch and move to try and keep it from swelling further. Unfortunately, my injured ankle was kicked several times by a rushed crew member. It would be great if they could be a bit more mindful and watch where they are walking. Also, the breakfast before landing was spoiled when I discovered fungus in my butter after I had already eaten half of it."
Cons: "Because the one came in from London Got Delay And I miss my flight"
Pros: "Excellent crew, provided beverages constantly, meals were very good for airplane food, seats were comfortable for most of the 9.5 hours. Entertainment selections were more than adequate. Even the babies were quiet !!!"
Cons: "TV screens did not function consistently, had to be reset a couple of times. Plane was late boarding (but made up most of the time). Had to go through security a second time even though it was a connecting flight. Luggage got crushed in a carousel pile-up and took a long time to come out."
Pros: "Excellent boarding experience. Very good food, overall a very comfortable journey."
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Food and drinks were far in between. We were on Delta for an international flight and they almost didn’t stop offering stuff to us. I had a another man with broad shoulders like me next to me and had to spend the next 9 hours leaning to the other side to fit. Asked for help to find a different seat even if I had to pay for an upgrade and was told I couldn’t do that after the flight had started"
Cons: "Waited an hour after boarding in the plane."
Pros: "at RDU after they missed to notify me in time, they were very nice to find me the fastest route on the next day, not miss my whole conference . They give me food vulture also. most of the flying attendances were really kind under my travel, except on the MUC-IAD plane"
Cons: "They didn't notify me in time on a delay and didn't suggested a different route. Therefore I was able to flew just the following day as my connection to the oversea flight was more then an hour delay. It happened with me flying to Budapest, and also flying back from Budapest. Make you better understand, that does it mean for me: in Budapest I missed the first part of my conference, and with the flying back one day later I lost one payed work day. As I have family in Budapest I decided to stay for the night there, and not at Munich, but just rescheduling my flight and providing me a taxi drive was so complicated, that it took two and half extra hrs at the airport, Also Lufhansa put me in my rescheduled back trip the MUC-IAD flight on the 45C seat, what was the worst seat on the plane. Not just that. When they have plenty of empty seat in all of the section, and they wanted to sell it the economy plus seats for more than hundred dollars, I mentioned to the fight attendance my misery ,and how I don't like the seat what I got, and she laughed on me, and I heard her telling her colleagues,this kind of funny way as they were behind me. That's no how they need to treat passenger, Also on flying back they didn't react fast, and they missed to put me on the Frankfurt plane, what could be an alternative route, on the same day, instead they sent me desk to desk."
Cons: "A good portion of the time i have flown with lufthansa with a checked bag, something has been damaged. I dont know how hard Lufthansa had to hit or throw my bag to break something wrapped in the center but they did it!"
Pros: "hot food and some complimentary alcoholic beverages"
Cons: "Boarding seamed inefficient. Loaded handicap onto separate vehicle in middle of us boarding, so it stopped our process. My seat didn't recline even though it had a button. No in flight entertainment?! At all... Got a crappy breakfast omelet that i didn't want to put in my stomach."
Pros: "Same as a above"
Pros: "Beautiful day to fly. Flight attendants were very nice! Great service!"
Cons: "Boarding mix up, which was completely Lufthansa's responsibility, delayed my flight to Istanbul for one hour which caused my missing my connection with another airline. This in turn cost me the original flight and a new ticket purchase of at an exorbent price."

Pros: "Great flying on an A380"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit disorganized."
Cons: "the food was not kosher chicken with milk at the first flight the past was owerfull"

Cons: "Wish economy seats had power outlets to charge phones and tablets."
Pros: "I am 6'1 so I wish could have afforded 1st class, but I am grateful to the desk staff who made sure I was as comfortable as possible. Great movies. Good food."
Cons: "The tightness of the seats!"
Pros: "Was served food and drinks for a 2 hr flight between OTP and MUC. Who else does this? My mom was offered transportation assistance throughout the entire flight. Preboarding on every leg of the flight"
Cons: "Since I was sitting among the last seats, they ran out of.chicken and I had to settle for spinach filled ravioli. This is the only minor issue."
Pros: "It was so much better in all ways from the United flight we had from Newark, NJ to Milano."
Cons: "It was IMPOSSIBLE to check in 'on-line' at my cousins the day before or even that morning. We wasted an enormous amount of time trying to do that, rather than walking & talking & enjoying each others company, the first time we've seen each other in 12 yrs."
Pros: "Food TV movies service cab crew."
Pros: "on time, many toilet rooms available. not too much noises from other passengers."
Cons: "Boarding system was quite chaotic and unclear. Food was horrible. Premium Economy Class seat was just similar to economy class. Sound system with provided earphones don't work well."

Pros: "Clean, new aircraft with comfortable seats, excellent in flight service by the cabin crew, great selection of in-flight entertainment. Punctual departure and arrival (very smooth landing of the B747-800!!)"
Cons: "I asked at the gate in Frankfurt if I would need to show all our passports again before boarding. The Lufthansa gate agent said she didn't think they would be checked again and to just have boarding passes ready. So I packed the passports on my carryon backpack and just had our 7 boarding passes for our family. Then at the end of the jet bridge right before getting on the aircraft, two people were checking passports again. I had to unpack them from the folder in my backpack. Not a big issue, but the gate agent gave me bad information and should have known we needed boarding passes and passports for boarding."
Pros: "The crew were very kind and helpful. The flight was prompt. The food was good and the entertainment kept me busy on a long flight."
Cons: "I couldn't use my personal headphones as the euro adapter did not work with theirs. The provided head phones worked but I missed the noise cancelling feature of mine."

Cons: "Leg room."
Cons: "Small plain and food was very bad"

Pros: "I like that everything is done fairly quickly and efficiently."
Cons: "It may be a cultural thing for some, but two of the flight attendants did not smile at all. Not even really an acknowledgement when I said hello to them. And I tried throughout the flight to see if it was just because they were too busy or simply did not hear or notice me. It's not a big deal now, but it can be if the whole staff were to become silent and non-interactive."
Cons: "Very annoying person next to me. I know that wasn't team's fault but she made my flight terrible."
Pros: "The crew was friendly. They offered half a sandwich and drinks which was unexpected (and delicious)for a short flight."
Cons: "There was no negative only positive, two thumbs up....."
Cons: "The boarding process"

Pros: "Great service and entertainment. Pretty comfortable, too."
Cons: "food was so so."
Pros: "Crew is excellent, polite and personal!"
Cons: "Plane is super old and outdated. Comfort seat is not, comfortable, very tight. TV screen is not good quality, with the old controls on a handset. No touch, no 1/8 inch audio jack (it has the old 3 holes one). Wifi for streaming freezes every other second. Just make a face lift to the plane, everything else is good."

Pros: "Seat was uncomfortable. There was nothing to like. In past I have traveled by KLM but this time it was worst."

Cons: "The seats are too narrow and a bit too hard"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic, seats and entertainment was great. Very good food choices."
Cons: "Everything was very good."
Cons: "We were allowed to choose our seats from SFO to Amsterdam but not for the return flight. I like to be able to choise my seats when I book the flight. Choosing seats 24 hours before is not convenient when traveling for the return trip."
Cons: "They left my bag off the plane. Ridiculous."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and the seat at economy comfort was comfortable at the “ok” level. It needs much mor3 to be super comfortable. The plug for the headphones was a mess! It was NOT possible to watch a movie and hear the sound too! I gave up! Not a great offering for the extra dollars..."
Cons: "So many things! Starting with the way assistance in the airport is offered to travellers with mobility issues! This is an important issue that needs to be revisited and changes for better service to be made!"
Pros: "Like the overall KLM experience"
Cons: "Food could have had better quality and the stewardess served it all at once versus in the various courses."
Pros: "I love the food"
Cons: "I have ordered Wheelchair for my parents which one of my parent didn't get it on Mumbai Airport. When they arrived on Amsterdam Netherlands Airport they were dropped to the gate assigned first and once the gate changed on the fly no body came to help them moving to the new gate assigned which was far away to walk. Nobody even came to tell them that the gate has been changed. It was because of my father's alertness they didn't miss the connecting flight and when my father asked help to members on airport none of them helped my parents and other 4 co passengers which also were on wheel chairs. It was so scary experience for them that they asked me not to book any more flights with Jet Airways. I won't recommend Jet Airways to any of my friends for their parents to travel to USA. I strongly recommend you guys to take a strict action against this. This is so unacceptable."
Pros: "Gaps between seats are very narrow."
Cons: "when serving drinks, cabin crew limited to serve liquor only once and it was poor service."
Pros: "short, sweet and to the point. 1+ hour flight is usually an easy hop."
Cons: "I’ve traveled a lot internationally and this was the WORST flight I’ve ever had to endure. I felt like I was being tortured and didn’t sleep at all and so slept when getting into Amsterdam rather than being able to explore the city. I was out $200 for the Airbnb (could’ve stayed in the airport cheaper) and $200 for a dinner cruise I slept through. NEVER AGAIN"
Pros: "Crew where awesone and the choice of entertainment was fantastic"
Cons: "Seats way to close together"
Pros: "Flight crew very nice"
Cons: "Paid $70 for seat with more leg room and was the exit role to main entrance. No overhead space for carry on: broken food tray holder. People stepping on my feet. And gather in your space waiting for bathrooms. Window seat had no room for feet because of closed door"
Pros: "Flying with KLM is a pleasure"
Pros: "Great on board service from a very professional crew."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing."
Pros: "Professional crew. Good boarding."
Cons: "No entertainment on board in business. Stale buns - staff unapologetic. Older 737 with uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "We were fed a nice pasta meal and offered drinks twice. They also gave a muffin for desert. The flight attendants were very nice and attentive with cheerful smiles. I wish every airline had service this good!"
Pros: "Need better quality tvs for such a long flight and better movies There were only 4 Bollywood movies and not the latest ones either"
Cons: "Our total flight time was about 17 hours - MAD- AMS-LAX. My husband and I both have an internationally approved carry on luggages with us. When we checked in - they asked us to both check in our carry on luggage. The reason why is because they said they don’t think they have enough space for our carry ons. I told the crew member checking us in that other people that was checking in with the same hand carry size luggage with us had no problems taking it with them. For being about to be on a 17 HOUR FLIGHT we should be ALLOWED to have our carry ons with us! We take carry ons for that reason! I had to argue and prove my case to the crew member to atleast keep 1 carry on with us. I thought that was an UNACCEPTABLE reason for us to check in a carry on luggage when we had a 17 hour travel time ahead of us. Not a happy costumer here."
Pros: "Left ontime and service was excellent."
Cons: "The cabin crew was racist. She told me to move back from an empty seat just because she wanted one of the guys ( from her country ) to set on it! Very rude and racist."
Pros: "Nice crew; clean plane; decent dinner"
Cons: "No entertainment system; insufficient knee space"
Cons: "Delay can occur sometimes but it wiuld be better to be explained its reason and the estimated time for boarding. The customer service at CDG airport was the worst ever and all people standing boarding desk were useless without any mind what they are doing."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful, entertainment system worked well and had good choices"
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable, it was uncomfortably hot and there was not air conditioner vent above like most other airlines"
Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Everting so good ex"
Pros: "Bording was good and general flight ok"
Cons: "This airplane must be the oldest in the fleet. No USB, no charging, no touchscreen technology, no plugs, no bluetooth."
Pros: "The staff was extremely pleasant. Food was good!"
Cons: "Have no complaints"
Pros: "Decent seat size. Sorta slept the whole flight."
Pros: "The staff were professional and friendly The food was very good and plentiful The inflight entertainment has lots of choices The bathrooms remained clean All in stark contrast with BA with who I did the same flight 2 weeks ago and all the above points were very poor"
Pros: "Service impeccable!"
Cons: "They have one line of executive class after the kitchen and toilet, is very noisy."
Pros: "Airline staff good and professional"
Cons: "Nothing one can do, for a 6.2" guy, the metal bar that forms the shape for the pouch for magazines and such digs into knees, ESP if person in front adjusts seat back. Fold out table barely accommodates laptop."
Pros: "Jet airways flight till mumbai"
Cons: "Poor legspace in Klm flight till Amsterdam"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, and the food was better than the usual KLM fare."
Cons: "The "new" seats were hard and uncomfortable. Avoid any kinds of seats near the bathroom in a configuration with 3 abreast next to the windows. The "aisle" seat is essentially a "waiting area" for the rest room."
Pros: "Flight attendants tried their best given what they had to work with."
Cons: "They can not retire these old Boeing 747's soon enough. Due to mechanical problems, our flight arrived at LAXfour and a half hours late and further problems with the cargo door caused an additional one hour delay of our take off."
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "Food and drink service"
Cons: "Boarding pass facility"
Pros: "Enough space good wine and on time"
Pros: "captain was great."
Cons: "With skyteam elite status cannot select free upgrade from economy to premium economy unless it is 30hrs before boarding for this code share which is actually a KLM flight"
Cons: "Because of slow boarding process flight was delayed by 15 minutes. I had short connection in Amsterdam."
Pros: "The flight crew were kind, polite, and attentive."
Cons: "Bussing to the plane was a bit odd, but the crew remained organized in doing so. When we arrived to the plane, they had both entrances open so that those sitting near the rear of the plane would enter from the back. Plane was a little chilly, but I have come to expect that one most flights."
Pros: "Such a delightful flight."
Cons: "Departure late by 25 minutes!!"
Pros: "Only the speed of the flight. The seat was terrible! No pitch, no room, squeezed in like sardines. The crew spent most of their time hawking BA products. Embarrassing."
Cons: "More room! It was excruciating, and I am not a large person. The boarding process was chaotic and confused. Took a very long time. The only good part of the flight was that the pilot provided a smooth and quick (thankfully, because the rest was pretty miserable) time in the air. BA has become worse than Ryanair."
Pros: "Our crew on the trip from DC to London was excellent- friendly and efficient. We really enjoyed the whole experience."
Cons: "The short trip from London to Vienna felt overcrowded with people lugging heavy suitcases on board. Also the fact that you have to purchase even water was a surprise because we were not aware of such a severe policy by BA. Plus our American credit cards were not accepted by the on board cc machine so we spent 2 hour flight without any refreshments"
Pros: "Food fine. Entertainment choices fine. More leg room than American."
Cons: "Departed over an hour late. Preferential treatment given to a family member of flight crew. Also, kind of stingy with water."
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Comfortable economy seats. Excellent experienced staff."
Cons: "Food was so so. Entertainment system is old and a bit slow."
Pros: "Nothing to like at all."
Cons: "There is no food even water at international flight!!! Terrible service."
Cons: "Had no idea we had not payed to check a bag. Could have paid online prior to boarding for 30 pounds, but because we did not know, had to pay 65 pounds in order to check a bag at the airport. I am extremely dissatisfied with this flight and with British airways in general. I wish I would have known about the baggage and I could have saved myself a LOT of money. British airway crew were rude and unhelpful. I will not be flying with them again."
Cons: "Very bad smell, pass landing"
Pros: "We could reschedule it. But only a week later."
Pros: "Crew is kind, polite and patient. Food portions are adequate. Entertainment is on par on upgraded 747s to other aircraft in the fleet now."
Cons: "Be careful of the Chicken Curry main. Wasn’t expecting it to be extremely spicy. Seat pitch is tight but generally comfortable due to the unique headrests of these new seats. USB power was provided. Arrival into JFK was terrible. BA’s T7 is so crowded and dated I could literally touch the ceilings above my head while waiting 2 hours for immigration crammed into desolate conditions."
Pros: "There was NO water in a 4+ hour flight unless you pay!!"
Cons: "Non of the three bottles I asked for on duty free were onboard It is apauling that food & drinks have to be bought in such a long flight including water!!!"
Pros: "It was a comfortable flight and plane."
Cons: "It was a tad cold but most planes are."
Pros: "Comfort items on the over sea flight"
Cons: "Long layover kept getting longer and longer due to flight delays at Heathrow. No explanations in writing - a ticketing agent told us of the dela. The status board was simply blank. BA website said nothing at all"
Cons: "One world premium member, last seat next to the bathroom, rude check in staff who we’re highly unhelpful saying they had no authority to help and to use ba.com for customer service issues and outrageous checked bag fees €75. Never again BA."
Pros: "The crew was friendly (for the most part). Left more or less on time. Food exceed my (rather low) expectations. Good flight, well above average."
Cons: "Couldn't hear the loud speaker at all in London airport. Not loud enough. Poor enunciation. The guy serving tea during the flight was pretty rude. Not of fan of that guy."
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent. The food service was very good. Entertainment choices were abundant and generally good."
Cons: "Reaching our connecting flight. The Bataan death march comes to mind—concourse 3 to 5, oh my! Having got through all the hurdles including incomprehensible up, down, up again down again escalator rides and security pat down for my wife we got to Concourse 5 where we learned our plane was leaving from C gates, but not which C gate. So we looked for directions to C gates. The only signage was for C gates 52 to 57. Common sense would lead one to believe that C gates 1 to 51 existed somewhere in the terminal; but no they do not and not many people are aware that they don’t. There has to be a better way. Perhaps before Brexit becomes a reality you could lean on Germany’s vaunted efficiency to help clean up this nightmare scenario."
Pros: "Flight was safe. Pilots did fine job."
Cons: "Plane was filthy. Crew did not collect rubbish throughout the flight except once immediately after each meal service. I went to the back to throw away my and my seat mate's rubbish, bins were overflowing and untidy. seemed to put out crew members when I asked for a cup with ice."
Cons: "I had a drink ( whiskey)and requested for some snacks to go with the drink but was told they had only pretzels and nothing else"
Pros: "Food was great. Sleeper amazing- I was asleep for at least 4 hours"
Cons: "Planes should have WiFi"
Pros: "Friendly crew...that’s it."
Cons: "Ordering my ticket was a pain, I couldn’t check in online, I was stuck in the middle section in the back for all my flights, they overbooked and we were delayed twice as a result, the entertainment was poor, the food was mediocre, and the seats were not comfortable. There are much better options to fly."
Cons: "Waiting 6 hrs"
Pros: "Flight was on time, check-in easy, personnel friendly. Good experience."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and attentive"
Cons: "It’s an older plane. Video screens are pixelated. Seats are cramped and I’m only 5’3. Boarding process was a mess. They used 15-20 minutes calling the first class and premiere class passengers. Then announce everyone else can board in 20 minutes. I ordered a lactose free meal and got curry with caramel cream, butter, milk stick for coffee and bread. Snack was a snack sized kit kat bar."
Pros: "things went smoothly once we were boarded"
Cons: "they kept changing boarding time. not their fault, i suppose."
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "I had a flight from Atlanta to London with a connection flight to fly to Istanbul. The first flight was fine and smooth but the second was just terrible. Upon buying and resorting to British Airwaya, it wasn't mentioned anywhere that the second flight plans do not offer complimentary soft drinks or snacks for the three hour flight after a 6 hour layover. Assuming my flight was going to feed, I didn't eat a whole lot at the airport so I didn't have to spend too much money. I declined the cart the first go around and didn't seem any too interested or sure what some of the options were. I lasted as long as I could and gave in and pulled out my credit card (not accepting cash is another disappointment because my Turkish bank account was charged by pounds) but there was nothing but one choice left and it didn't sit well in my stomach."
Pros: "Nice plane and nice staff"
Cons: "No free water or coffee? Absurd."
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth and the crew was amazing. Not only the pilot kept us informed but also the crew was outstanding, very helpful and hardworking."
Cons: "The entertainment system failed as soon as we departed. They reset it for the entire plane but it didn't work for some passengers. Fortunately, mine worked well but I would not have survived such a long flight without the entertainment offered, so I can only imagine how painful it was for those affected. I know this, in hindsight, is a silly problem, but when flying it's important to have options, especially for an 11-hour flight. The crew handled it fantastically, by the way."
Cons: "terribly small seats!!! I had a gout attack after this flight. horrible!"
Pros: "Your staff were truly excellent, helpful and engaging."
Cons: "My TV worked only intermittently and I therefore could not relax and enjoy the entertainment..."
Cons: "I didn't get to go. The Turks said I couldn't even change planes in Istanbul without a visa -- and they weren't issuing any."
Pros: "The crew and entertainment was great on this flight! Other than that, it is kind of hard to find positives."
Cons: "We were delayed by 30 minutes for whatever reason and then we were trapped in the air for 11 hours in tiny seats. The seat wasn't very comfortable and I didn't have much room to sit and for my legs. I had a stupid box under the seat in front of me with airplane stuff in it I guess, so that took up some room under the seat in front of me. I had my legs stretched in the aisle most of the flight. The food wasn't great, but what airline food is good? I was really expecting this aircraft to be like the Dream Liner, but overall it was just a big tin can in the sky."
Pros: "Deserts were really good"
Cons: "Would be great to have Healthier snacks inbetween the meals"
Pros: "Crew was very efficient and polite."
Cons: "Very early flight for London. Very crowded. Boarding methods are once again slow by design. All the card holders get priority boarding , causing delays in general boarding do to folk standing around while putting stuff away."
Pros: "The food was adequate and when they brought drinks they were free. With the person in front of me reclining her seat I could not have my cup of water on the tray without it being tipped because it intruded too much. i am assuming the seat was broken as that would be silly to have a seat recline so much that you couldn't use the tray table properly."
Cons: "48 minutes and I turned the light off and on for a flight attendant numerous times. I finally had to speak out across the plane since the people blocking me in were sleeping. This was just to get a glass of water. Service was deplorable. People kept walking to the galley rather than the flight attendants attending. A sad state of affairs. I paid for extra leg room but apparently a plane change put me in a different seat which did not give extra leg room."
Pros: "The crew was awesome and helpful"
Cons: "BA took my kids Trolleys and when we off board the plan they told us wait we will give you the Trolleys on the gate, we wait for 30 mins and then informed us that the Trolleys will be with the bags on the bag area. This make us to wait 1 hrs in Costume as it was crowded. People who traveled in economy class left airport before us"
Cons: "Boarding at Charles de Gaule airport in Paris. Always a mess."
Cons: "I paid to upgrade my seat and another passenger sat there and refused to move so I had to sit on the opposite side of the row causing me discomfort the entire flight. I have a titanium leg on my right side and always sit in a seat that allows me to stretch my leg right side of aisle. Very dissatisfied"
Pros: "flight was relatively empty, and did not delay too much."
Cons: "No entertainment whatsoever. Meal is only a muffin or a cake of some sort. Waited way too long to disembark the plane."
Pros: "Got food poisoning from flight or Italian restaurant at terminal 3"
Pros: "There was something to like?"
Cons: "This was a four hour international flight from London to Istanbul. There was no in-flight entertainment system of any kind, not even audio, and there was no free food or drinks. Not even a bag of peanuts or a soda. Everything had to be paid for. And if you did wanted to purchase something, it took forever since passengers had to whip out a credit card. Cash not allowed. I have never been on an international flight that made you pay for food and drinks. When I inquired why, the reason given was that this was a "short-haul international flight". Oh, I see. British Airways is now a discount airline."
Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Service, crew, departure delay, dated vehicle"
Pros: "Good service friendly cabin crew"
Pros: "The flight was half full"
Cons: "The plane was half comfortable. We were charged for everything. Water, etc."
Pros: "Customer service."
Cons: "Embracardo plane is small."
Cons: "Why do I have to pay for food in an international flight? Ridiculous."
Pros: "Good choice of entertainment"
Cons: "It was difficult to get out of the seat when seat in front was reclined."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and took forever to get me on a new flight. On thw way back British airways messed up my return flight completly inconviencing us and created a very stressful situation. Lost over $400 becuase of delayed flight and I will be contacting BA in terms of compensation for not only my lost money but time."
