Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "For such a LONG flight, grateful to ask Turkish Airlines to make available bigger aircrafts."
Cons: "Free wifi"
Pros: "Flight was badly delayed and they changed the gates 3 times with no proper announcements. As a result connecting in Istanbul after 23 hours flight from LAX I missed my flight to Baku. I was made to pay EUR 651 one way at THY transfer desk for another flight which was also delayed."
Cons: "For THY being more professional, taking responsibility for their mistakes and not punishing their customers for THY carelessness. As I understand this situations happen all the time."
Pros: "The flight from Dubai landed late in Istanbul. TK had someone there to escort the business class passengers through security to make sure we made our connection."
Cons: "The temperature on the flight to NY from IST was a bit too cold."
Pros: "The crew were all very nice and the food was good."
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour and a half. The system kept throwing my son and I out of two different movies every five minutes. I got fed up and decided to listen to music. Was good for three songs and kept freezing and throwing me out. Was happening to other passengers too. It was very frustrating."
Cons: "being treated like a drug dealer at the boarding gate #312 and having passport / boarding pass checked several times"

Pros: "The flight was on time, the food was good. Nice selection for onboard entertainment. The plane was very clean."
Cons: "1. The boarding process at Istanbul airport was horrible. No one could speak or understand english. My father was on a wheelchair and he was the last one to be boarded on the plane! There was so much confusion - some people wanted me to go separately from him, others wanted him to walk down the stairs on his own, etc. etc. There were hardly any announcements for people with special needs. Generally they are allowed to board first as they need more time to settle. I could barely find overhead bin space for his stuff. 2. There were several remote controls broken on the plane. A lot of people had to suffer through a non working entertainment screen. 3. One of the hostess was hardly listening to anything I had to say. She seemed to be in so much of a hurry and had a very bad attitude."
Pros: "Down to Level G to check in, worked out OK. Security was good and easy. Left on time, important! Bags checked straight through to SFO"
Cons: "The crew did not seem interested at all; the food was mediocre and the headphones provided were broken and despitea repeated request to get new ones I did not get theme"
Cons: "Last minute gate assigned and then changed"
Cons: "Late flight While in transit. They wouldn't pay for my meal in Istanbul because my overlay was 3 hrs"
Pros: "Service and team"
Pros: "Food was pretty good. There was a large selection of entertainment options which was nice. Crew seemed pretty friendly. USB and plug point are extremely nice."

Cons: "Check-in was very slow."

Pros: "Overall the experience was good with friendly staff."
Cons: "My luggages where ruined and there was heavy rain. The luggages where left out instead of being protected l, damaging clothing and the luggages themselves."

Pros: "Timing of the flight."
Cons: "I have used this same flight 6 times and only the first time was good. The others were getting bad every time. The service is very poor. The food is not good. You can not say you are out of pasta when you said you will serv it. Flight attendants really are not friendly."
Cons: "they lost my lagge and I been in JFK airport waiting over 2 hours I am soo upset it is a very bad experience I hope they found my stuff"
Cons: "The flight left early, without me. Instead of beginning boarding at the time printed on my ticket, like every other airline, boarding was completed and closed fifteen minutes before my ticket said they would start, so even though I was eight minutes early I was actually seven minutes too late. Turkish Airlines service desk took the evidence (my ticket) and then refused to rebook me, forcing me to pay $600 for a new flight and for a visa to Turkey just so I could exit through security to book & pay for it. They will not be getting any more of my business in the future!"
Cons: "If you are members of the same star alliance, you should step up your customer service and transfer bags with your sister company. also Kayak should not make layovers so short. Airlines that are notorious for late departures will cause your bags to be routed wrong, or not at all. poor job all around on customer service."
Pros: "Almost everything but the checkin process at JFK with Turkish Air agent speaking poor English and casting doubt that everything is going to be fine with my trip. Instead she was reacting "the rules are changing every day" and didn't not weather I should need visa for my native country (?!) although I have showed I was born in that country (Macedonia) and the holders of US passports (which I am) -- do not need entry visa to that country. Everything else was good or excellent -- especially food and airplane crew."
Cons: "The checkin process at JFK with Turkish Air agent at JFK (New York) on May 24 - 2017."
Pros: "Aircraft good, crew members respectful, food was good."
Cons: "Confusion delayed takeoff by 1 hour or more. Staff at gate had an issue in their system. They let others after me on the flight but said would be missing luggage. I said that is fine. Ten minutes later they said they would not let me board. I spent no less than 4 hours trying to get out of the airport-- waiting for visa and then through customs. Every Turkish airline desk took a long time and I was sent to at least 4 Turkish airlines desks. It is all a mess. So I am one day delayed in my arrival to my destination. This has been so frustrating!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Everything was great! Nice service, good food, enough space, I was impressesd! Congrstulations!"
Cons: "I liked everything, no dislikes."
Cons: "The delay"
Cons: "Gate change not announced and when we asked at the desk, we were told "we are not the information booth!" Then it was a 90 minute wait to get through security."

Cons: "The chairs were really uncomfortable, I'm a young, healthy traveler, but my knees and back really hurt after this trip."
Cons: "I was in group a. I was in line with others when the staff suddenly closed off group a and starting boarding group b. She wouldn't answer why I couldn't board. After letting group c board she told those of us in group a still in line to love over to the line for group c. It's not a big deal when one boards but this was annoying and rude"
Cons: "Good floght"
Pros: "Crew with genuine smile. Delicious food."
Cons: "Very narrow seatig space."
Cons: "I wanted to upgrade called Kayak that out me through to VAYAMA that then called Turkish airlines. Took hours in the phone (international call) they then told me I can't upgrade (payed upgrade) because the business is FULL, guess what??? Business was EMPTY"
Cons: "Flight crew from Miami to Istanbul not very helpful. Very hot in plane"
Cons: "YOU destroy the traveler Luggage at this trip and there is some items missing . Thank you"
Pros: "Best movie selection, best food. They even came around with pieces of Turkish delight right after we took off. Turkish Air makes it worth flying through Istanbul to get to western Europe!!"
Cons: "No kosher food on board"
Cons: "Aggressive staff, terrible food"
Pros: "The worst flight experience of my life. The temperature was unbearably hot. Seating was cramped, no leg room and seat would not recline. Crew was rude. I could not day about the food, the heat in the cabin made me physically ill and I dare not eat anything."
Pros: "The lie-flat seats were just great ."
Cons: "Storage space should be made available beside the seats , especially during take-off and landing. There is none right now , and that's in Business class."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Very old plane with seatback screens or USB ports for charging."
Pros: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "I couldn’t change my seat"

Pros: "No food or entertainment"
Pros: "Everything. Great airport, swift boarding, great food on board with an educational twist, etc"

Cons: "Only coffee served over a 3-hour flight"
Cons: "No room on flight ran out of wine and food before getting to the back 1/3 of plane where I was sitting I can say one of the worst travel flights I've ever had"

Cons: "It was n't their fault but My wife's passport expired in 91 days from beginning travel so they wouldn't let us on the plane to Italy."

Pros: "The crew was very much professionals, worked fast."
Pros: "The crew was attentive, the plane left on time, we arrived very early at our destination."
Cons: "The people working at the American Airline counters at the Philly International Airport are very unhelpful and rude. When the check-in kiosk said to get assistance from a rep, the reps told me they could not move from behind their counters. The TSA people people were worse. They treat passengers as if they are dogs, never saying please or thank you, but giving commands in condescending tones to people."
Pros: "I did get to move away from complaining passengers but "lost my coat" in the process. People are awful and obnoxious"
Cons: "Who doesn't turn off the plane lights at night inside the cabin? Especially when you're feeling late at night? Didn't post gate until very last minute…LHR..Then it said boarding immediately. Nowhere to get water. Hurriedly Boarded plane to find out we have the sit there an hour. Girl next to me was so childish Loud mouth complaining because she couldn't sit next to her bf."
Pros: "Loved the flight attendance!! They were friendly, witty and flexible."
Pros: "Courteous attendants on board! Food not bad!"

Pros: "Flight left late but reached early. Plane we comfortable and had clean toilets"
Cons: "Crew was very noisy. It was an overnight flight. Waking us up at 1am for dinner not really needed."
Pros: "The crew members were pleasant"
Cons: "I had to pay an additional fee of $327 because I had a infant riding with me on my lap."
Pros: "It was a quick, smooth flight."
Cons: "The chicken for dinner was horrible. The call buttons for assistance sounded constantly the entire flight.. Not sure if it was a malfunction."
Cons: "Even though we had booked this flight in September we were never able to choose a seat for this flight. We kept trying and the only way we could pick a seat months and weeks ahead was if we bought an upgrade. We had already spent over $1000 to fly to Paris each and did not want to buy an upgrade. We just wanted the assignment of a seat. When we got closer to the date we were told that we would get a seat assignment at check in. At check in we were told we would get a seat assignment at the airport. At the airport we were told we would get a seat assignment at the GATE! At the GATE the attendant had difficulty finding our seats and finally found them with the help of another attendant. This adding extreme stress to a trip that was planned in September and should have been a pleasureable experience. Our seats were not together and we then had to go on the plane and ask other travelers to change their seats in order to be near each other. This was not our job! We ended up near each other but not together. Then when we arrived in Paris we noticed that our suitcases had been tagged STAND BY!!!!!! We were glad that we did not see that at the Philadelphia airport because it would have added even more stress to a long anticipated pleasure trip to Paris. Next time we will make sure that the tickets we are purchasing (FINNAIR) have nothing to do with American Airlines."
Cons: "Don't understand why they do not open to get the seat until 36 hours ago. Our family of 4 got scattered all over; the agent was not at all helpful -- they seemed bitter about their working condition and the fact that they had to deal with dissatisfied customers. I talked to the supervisor and we were finally able to sit together just because a party of 4 did not show up. I am not at all happy with the AA for their stupid rule."
Pros: "Flight attendant , i dont her but she was sweet and attentive."
Cons: "The leg room was really tight even for short person"
Cons: "Seats given away that we selected six months ago even though we checked in days early. Four family members all over plane."
Pros: "It was a pleasant flight, easy boarding, crew friendly."
Pros: "comfortable seats, meal was better than expected, in flight entertainment was good"
Cons: "it's absurd to have to pay like $70 more for window seats"
Cons: "We paid extra for seat selection which was supposed to be a window seat and ended up in middle seat... not acceptable..."
Cons: "Need wifi to work. Highly dissapointed that BRITISH air doesn't have this feature. Most airlines do!!"
Pros: "I last traveled on British Airways in May of last year (2015) and the food was beyond dreadful. Therefore I was very pleasantly surprised that there has been a huge improvement. They were very generous with the drinks and the food was plentiful and quite a reasonable standard for airline food (they gave two full meals from San Francisco to London, whereas most airlines give one meal and one snack on that route). They actually checked us in on the earlier side, we took off very promptly and got to London early. It was nice to be on time for a change - so often I find airlines run a bit late. Staff were all pleasant and helpful. Pilot's messages were pleasant, friendly and even a bit informative."
Cons: "Web check-in ahead of time was a total disaster. I got an email telling me I could check in 36 hours early and "secure a good seat" but neither of the 2 sets of codes they provided in the email would work because it was all about Finnair but actually the flight was being run by British Airways. I spent about 30 minutes on the 'phone trying to get the appropriate sequence of numbers and letters to enter so as to check in and get a good seat - still nothing worked. This was at 5:45am - I regretted the time spent when I could have gone back to sleep. My daughter later spent a further 90 minutes trying to figure it out, only to be told finally that our only option was to get to the airport early and check n there which was what we did. It was beyond irksome. Please note, if the airline actually flying is different fro the booking airline, the locator number for check n will be DIFFERENT and needs to be provided to the customer to avoid a great deal of hassle and confusion. We gt particularly unlucky because BA computers had a glitch that day but the general point still stands."
Cons: "Our bag was not checked through to our final destination and was delivered a day later."
Pros: "The flight crew were professional and friendly."
Cons: "the seats are too small and cramped. I am quite small and I felt cramped. I feel on long flights there should be more leg room"
Pros: "the flight was very comfortable"
Pros: "The crew was just fantastic. ...."
Cons: "I request special meal. ..unfortunately was not provided to me."
Pros: "Crew got into the Christmas spirit"
Cons: "Audio sockets had "scratchy" sound quality, no matter which headphones were employed Touch screens were very unresponsive and viewing listings was infuriatingly slow - I would prefer to use a simple list without pics"
Pros: "The entertainment and service was the only plus on this flight."
Cons: "When I booked my ticket a month in advance, British Airways was going to charge me extra for trying to book my seating in advance. They told me it would be free if I called 24hrs before the flight. I called 24hrs before and they told me they could not book my seats because the airport owned the seating. My first flight was with American Airlines, they gave me a boarding pass, however for my leg with British Airways, I had to go get ANOTHER boarding pass to board the flight. This airline was very inconvenient and I felt scammed booking with them. I would not recommend this airline to anyone!"
Cons: "Trying to get through airport security was an unorganized clown show with them herding groups of passengers back and forth between airport terminals resulting in many people almost missing their flights because the lines just weren't moving. Once on the airplane, the international flight had TVs in the ceiling in the row playing one in-flight movie (what is this 1995?). American is such a terrible airline. The old US airways, Lufthansa, and British Airways, are way better international flights every time I've flown with them. Personal entertainment at your seat for each flight (i thought this was standard on all international flights in the past like 10 years) and more food and drinks throughout the flight."
Pros: "Crew was nice and boarding was on time"
Cons: "entertainment on the A330 is so sluggish people think the screen is not working correctly pushing harder and harder on the screen making it uncomfortable for the people in front of them. Food is as usual: Not very healthy and always the same."
Pros: "British Airways operated this flight and it was a great experience. The seats were cramped, but almost to be expected for an economy service overseas."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and very accommodating. Inflight entertainment had many choices, had a wonderful relaxing time. The food was not too good but then again it's airplane food. Overall, recommend the experience."
Pros: "I got me where i needed to go. The food was okay."
Cons: "Lost luggage, poor seats, poor entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed, flight crew was not very friendly, plane was extremely old and uncomfortable. In flight entertainment was not working for me and many other passengers. Food was very bland and took long to be served. Service and flight in general fell very very short of what I expected."
Pros: "B.787 flight operated by BA; free wine, great food and IFE."
Cons: "Seating now so cramped it's becoming dangerous."
Cons: "When I got to Phl I missed my connection to London. No one seemed to care that I needed to be in England by the 18th. They kept retorting me to arrive in England on the 19th. I told them multiple times Id be flexible and go to any city in the UK just for them to get me there on the 18th. The First person I talked to said it was impossible. So I called again and talked to another person and all of a sudden it was possible. The worst part was they sent me to Boston after that I didn't get to Boston until 1:50 am and they did not compensate with hotel or anything while my flight to London was not until 8:00 am the next morning. So I spent the night in the airport. Oh and then when I finally got to London, my bag is lost and they told me I'd have it by tomorrow and I still do not have my bag and have called and they said they can't tell me anything."
Pros: "Great to go through customs in Dublin so the landing at home is easy."
Cons: "The airline made people unnecessarily nervous by posting a very early boarding time so people thought they had to jump in line in customs when, in fact, we all had the same departure times and all had plenty of time."
Pros: "Rapid boarding with no delays"
Cons: "No snacks, no entertainment."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Missed connecting flight to London. Two days with no baggage (missing)."
Cons: "My bags didn’t make it to my final destination."
Cons: "Lost my bags"
Pros: "The selection of movies was great. Boarding happened super fast and plane departed early."
Cons: "Plane was incredibly cold! Touch screen didn’t work well. Breakfast was lame. Flight attendants were super loud during breakfast service even though the lights were still dimmed."
Pros: "It was a quick, short flight."
Cons: "My bags did not make the connection, which is crazy considering I was in Dublin for about 7 hours. It was not a quick layover, and my bags should have been on the plane with me."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant. Plenty of entertainment options to not get bored. Food was great too."
Cons: "My seat kept sliding back and forth, on the bottom and I had to keep moving it back into place. It made it quite uncomfortable."
Cons: "They did not include our checked luggage on our flight and had to wait for it to be delivered on the next available flight from Dublin."
Cons: "The plane is very old and dirty. They need to overhaul their planes to make them worth flying. Some seats recline way to far, some don’t recline at all, entire plane smells like stale cigarettes."
Pros: "The crew were friendly, v professional, v pleasant! The meal was hot fresh delicious! Great flight!!!!"
Cons: "They should serve FREE coffee on the connecting flight Dublin to London at 6 am. Ridiculous to make us pay for coffee after a long, international flight."
Cons: "My seat was broken, so I had to move to another. Fodd options were less than expected. Overall experience was good. Would definitely fly again, but bring my own snacks."
Cons: "No middle seat"
Pros: "The entertainment was great."
Cons: "It was hard coming home since we can't bring any food with meat on the international flight coming back to the USA. Or at least the food I brought, a sandwich was not allowed because of customs. I can't eat the food that was offered. I'm glutten intolerant and dairy involerant. Not sure there's a whole lot to do about it besides buy prepackaged food that don't have meat, vegtabjes or fruit. Protien bars may have worked. We brought two bottles of water each from the terminal. I could have used more, even with the drink service. The flight attendants we're having thier own personal conversation while passing out food and ran by when it came to the final trash clean up. When I got up to use the facilities I tried throwing my trash away but was ignored by a crew member while she was resting."
Pros: "Well maintained and good friendly staff."
Cons: "Alcoholic drinks should be free."
Cons: "Luggage was not out in th connecting flight and there was over 2hour layover so it should not have missed the plane it has all of my clothing in it"
Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "We would like a lil free water"
Pros: "We've got a huge delay with the first flight, the crew AT THE TERMINAL was very good organized and guided us straight to the connection flight. The crew at the flight I didn't even noticed."
Cons: "The missing luggage, as described above, is very unpleasant and still need extra effort. There was no drinks, nor food, nor entertainment included. The seats were very uncomfortable."
Pros: "I made it on the plane because they decided to delay the fight for the ones of us that almost missed our flight so to the flight from Dublin being late."
Cons: "The Food!"
Cons: "US pre-clearance involves a second run through security, which required again getting all liquids into one place. I also means arriving another 20 minutes early at Dublin airport. I suppose this affects every carrier from Dublin to US."
Cons: "There was no vegetarian option. Most airlines now have at least one vegetarian option. You had to ask at time of booking.Booked flight last min as Mom not well,l no time to think @ food."
Pros: "Same as above: great staff and service"
Cons: "Horrible online service and the surprise of being on a different airline than my travel documents had stated."
Cons: "They lost my suitcase. I’m on vacation without winter clothes and they don’t look for my suitcase. It has been a horrendous experience. Never again I will flight in Aer Lingus!!!!"
Cons: "There were 3 travelers in our family and we were not seated together. I assumed the flight was full but to our surprise there were empty seats that would allow us to be together. Serving of meals and drinks were slow although the food was better this time compared to our Chicago to Dublin trip. Movie selections were poor."
Cons: "Passengers line up to board instead of waiting for their number rows to be called. I ended up boarding later than most and the overhead lockers of the front rows (where I was sitting) were completely full. I had to place my baggage very far back and wait for almost everyone to leave the plane so I could collect it."
Pros: "Used the self check-in and an agent offered to help. She was fantastic!"
Cons: "Cattle call boarding.... No system. We prepaid 80 Euro for two carry-on size bags because they were slightly over the 10 kilo limit and then they announced at the gate that if carton bags were over size or weight, they would check the free. Really!!!!"
Pros: "Flight left a little late and arrived early."
Cons: "There was no food and there was no entertainment."
Pros: "The vegetarian meal was not available on either of my flights. I’d say they were a bit stingy handing out water as well. Space was good for the seating overall."
Pros: "Smooth and uneventful flight. Food was actually pretty decent, the beef stroganoff was decent. We were offered refreshments frequently and crew was friendly."
Cons: "The people behind me kept yanking on my seat back, making catching a few z's an impossibility. However, that's hardly the fault of the airline. Aircraft seemed a little old, but otherwise nothing extraordinary"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "The worst (hardest) airline seat I have ever endured! I dread the return home"
Cons: "Food & not enough water served. The seats had very little leg room on flight from Dublin to Lisbon and people had to maneuver their bodies to get into the seats."
Cons: "Cramped seating. No food or beverage provided without charge."
Cons: "Flight did not include a snack: even a tea cost $3."
Pros: "I was satisfied with the ease of boarding, and the flight was relatively comfortable."
Cons: "I did not appreciate the airline encouraging us to pay for an upgrade on seats that did not merit an upcharge. The entertainment centers did not work well (or at all) on either leg of our trip. The crew was not generous with water and acted a little put out when we asked for anything."
Cons: "Cheap headphones given out for the movies, almost impossible to hear speech"
Pros: "Nice, punctual, quick flight!"
Pros: "All flight attendants were cheery & kind throughout the 8-hour flight."
Cons: "Only downsides were with Dublin airport/U.S. security, so not Aer Lingus's fault."
Pros: "Everything about our flights to and from Ireland was fantastic! The crew was curtious and friendly, the service and food was terrific and the flight departed and arrived on time."
Cons: "Not applicable."
Pros: "Service, flight on time, arrived 30 minutes early"
Cons: "Pram was not waiting at the plane"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "The snack was really bad."
Cons: "We had a terrible experience at the Aer Lingus desk in Paris. We got there two hours early for our flight and there was already a long line at the desk and no agents at the counter. Finally some agents arrived started checkng people in. After 15 min in line, they told us that if we were flying to the U.S., our flight was delayed and we would not make our connection, and to get out of line and wait. After 20 more minutes, they said that was a mistake and get back in line. I waited for approximately an hour and a half in line there, and had to run to my flight. There was no effort made to hurry us through security or any apologies."
Cons: "We didn't like the charge to select seats together"
Pros: "Great idea to fill the back of the plane first, smooth loading! Food service was great."
Cons: "Sleep was a huge challenge. Not one to travel often it was s surprise how little room there was when the passenger in the seat in front leaned her seat back. I was unable to sleep by resting my head forward in the drop down tray."
Pros: "Passport and customs at Dublin."
Cons: "The crew is remarkably uninformed on things like partner airlines for mileage and other things. Dublin is a drab airport with no charging stations. Nice to clear passport control there though. Worst flight in quite a while VERY COLD PLANE. Broken seats and chargers. I don't watch movies much but there top selections were 3-5 years old."
Pros: "TRANSITION IN BOARDING INTO DUBLIN TO USA LITTLE CONFUSION WORRY ABOUT BOARDING ON TIME"
Cons: "There wasn't any good food options and there was a charge for everything. Not good....."
Cons: "I'm soooo upset about the service after my flight canceled. 1.the staff ignored me when I asked if I could have a VIP to rebook my tickets earlier because my mom got cancel and was going to do the surge . But he went away and never came back, no any response of YES or NO. 2.I don't know why the airline company still need 11 hours to rebook the tickets with all our flight information and our passport liscen numbers already , making us waiting till 3 am at the airport. 3. I asked my boyfriend to talk to the staff on phone, and the staff told my BF that he didn't know my English was not good. I said to him loudly that I had told him , but the manager besides said "don't shout at my staff"to me, even without asking me what happened . I don't think that was a good attitude for the service department, especially to a foreigner. My email address is Chentongtong@wku.edu.cn"
Pros: "Preferential seating, though I had to pay for it."
Cons: "Having to pay for a cup of tea."
Pros: "Crew was super friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "There were no vegetarian options for meals."
Cons: "even smaller seats, more cramped than the previous flight and even more children crying"
Cons: "Honestly nothing needed improvement/ it was a really good experience!"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed an hour out of Denver and then 4 hours delay out of London to Lisbon. And, after that long delay they didn't even offer free water."
Pros: "Felt like a disorganized mess! I don’t understand how this is still in business. Water was for sale on the flight, not for free. Water!! It’s a basic amenity. Exit row was exactly the same leg space as the rest of the aircraft. So why did I pay extra?"
Cons: "Delays! Delays! Delays!!"
Cons: "The AA flight from NYC was late arriving at Heathrow, causing me to miss the connection. AA/BA was very good about orienting me to the new plan, but the delay was very inconvenient and being in the last row of the newly arranged flight to Lisbon was downright unpleasant."
Pros: "Decent snaks. It gets you there."
Cons: "It’s your basic flight from A to B. Nothing fancy."
Cons: "Was not offered a drink whole others around me were. Don't know why."
Pros: "Flight itself was very smooth, especially the landing. Food was good also, both the chicken and pasta were prepared well. Pasta could have used a little more sauce. Quantities and variety were also good."
Cons: "I still don't understand why airlines don't board from the back to the front. Would make the entire process go much smoother. The bigger the plane the bigger the problem and delay. I don't mind storing a bag under the seat but there's more stuff taking up legroom so it's hard to get the feet comfortable which is important for those longer flights."
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Poor entertainment - no individual TV screen or choice of entertainment. Food was very poor. We were 9 min late due to crew shortages."
Pros: "The crew was considerate in taking care of children with families and assigning new upgraded seats to those adults who were looking for sleep and quiet. They were also helpful in getting me a special gluten free meal even though I did not order it in advance."
Cons: "No free snack or drink, noisy plane...couldn't hear stewards, and VERY uncomfortable seats...."
Pros: "One of the members of our party needed extra assistance because of an injury. We let BA know ahead of time online, and there was someone waiting to help at every connection and step of our travels. The staff and crew definitely went above and beyond to make our trip easier and more comfortable."
Pros: "The attendats are very helpful."
Pros: "Seats were somewhat spacious."
Cons: "This flight was also delayed twice. Once because the pilot was sick and again for weather. We sat on the tarmac for an hour. No food or drinks were served."
Pros: "The crew did their best. They were efficient and polite, no complaints"
Cons: "First of all, it wasn’t British Airways, it was operated by American Airlines. The seats were cramped; just barely enough kneeroom and I’m only 5’10”. There were no monitors on the seat backs and no choice of entertainment, only monitors hanging from the ceiling. I suppose the airline assumes, probably correctly, that these days everybody has their own entertainment on laptop or tablet. The problem here, though, was that there were no charging plugs at the seats, so you’d better have a full battery when you get on and hope it lasts. Of course, I could have just read the inflight magazine, except that my reading light was broken. Food was decent for airline food."
Cons: "Delayed takeoff. Food lower quality than expected"
Pros: "Crew was nice, food quality good"
Cons: "Single Breakfast bar for breakfast was pretry minimal"
Cons: "We had to go back to philadelphia after flying for 2.5hoyrs, landing at Bangor, waiting for the maintenance team to figure out the problem. We then had to wait for another flight for 4h before being able to go to paris.."
Cons: "I feel like the overall product is so devalued at BA these days. It just doesn't feel classy anymore. As opposed to Lufthansa, which is an example of a European carrier that cares about passenger comfort and experience. Also the typical circling of LHR to get a slot is annoying and makes me want to avoid BA."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "My wife had a tall guy on one side whose knees spilled over into her. She also had a tall guy in front of her who fully reclined his seat. She felt like she was in a coffin. She had to get up and walk around to get some air. The seats are too close on this 747 that no one should have to fly it. ."
Pros: "The personnel were most helpful, pleasant, and reassuring when I discovered I had left something on the plane. It was found and returned to me quite promptly and my continued flight was rebooked with the minimum of fuss (and embarrassment). Everyone was wonderful."
Cons: "I am not a seasoned traveller. Checking for a small item (such as a passport) in the overhead compartment was not possible."
Pros: "It was the same plane we flew into Philly from SF. Did not have to search for new gate"
Pros: "Crew was good, attentive, helpful, eager to accommodate. The tea cart sped past without alerting anybody as to what it was or that it wasn't going to come back but moments later another crew member came by and was very quick to return with a tea for me, which was nice of them. Other flight operators have had somewhat limited entertainment options, I was amazed by the range available."
Cons: "I was a little disappointed that in the video options, while it had he show Legion (something I'd been recommended by a friend recently), it was only the first 4 episodes instead of the complete 8, leaving a cliffhanger point in the story. Which was a bit of a shame."
Cons: "Charged us for food and even soft drinks on an international flight! I haven't experienced nickel and diminig like this on a n Major carrier like this."
Cons: "I thought I was supposed to get a free meal and was never offered that or even a complimentary beverage. The flight attendants allowed a group of four passenger to stand during almost the entire flight in the aisles and in my row, making it difficult for people to get around them and didn't allow for an enjoyable flying experience."
Pros: "Good food Welcoming and friendly flight attendants Amazing selection of movies, TV shows, games Excellent customer service Comfy seats with ample legroom"
Cons: "My seat did not recline at all. When notifying the flight attendants during the meal/beverage service, they said they would note down my seat. However, nobody ever gave me any assurances that they would really inform maintenance to resolve the problem. Half way through the flight, my screen froze. Nothing would start it up again. After waking up hours later, I informed the flight attendant and she was able to reset/restart my screen individually. Everything worked perfectly afterwards"
Cons: "There is more room in an economy seat on a commuter flight than there is on a 747. After this itinerary is complete I have no intention to ever fly with British Airways again."
Cons: "Lost luggage!!!"
Pros: "quite nice and friendly staff. many vacant seats and thus much space to seat comfortable"
Cons: "old airplane, kind of run down impression. annoying and not really working touchscreen, lousy choice of movies. Everything had the air of not being organized, we had to change our seats twice without knowing, why. Really poor food compared to any other airline I know. One of the stewards constantly spilled drops of beverages over me, when he was pouring them for me and the passengers around."
Cons: "The boarding gate was not posted until 25 min before plane was scheduled to depart, the departure was 20 min late, Customs at Lisbon took 1.5 hours for a simple stamp on my American passport. The aircraft was packed full, not even water was offered without charge, the service even at that was barely fast enough to make one pass of the passengers before landing, the aisles were continually blocked with service carts selling so how are you supposed to make a bathroom break?"
Pros: "Basic flight, no food/drinks. direct flight. no personal tv."
Cons: "they lost my bag, everything was in there. Had a direct 3 hour flight from london to lisbon, so checked in my luggage with everything in there."
Pros: "Have not flow BA in ages. The service was much better than recent US domestic carriers. Everyone tried to be helpful and the entire experience was much less like a "cattle car" than I was expecting."
Cons: "The crew was late which delayed our flight."
Pros: "My flight boarded easily,left on time."
Cons: "The food. Portions were made for a child. Nasty tasting. The ideal was throw gravy on it and it will taste alright. There's no effort at all. Asked stewardness. Twice for water and never got it."
Cons: "not enough room with the existing seating"
Pros: "Flight attendants and pilot very nice and informative."
Cons: "Very small seats in economy for an overseas flight, making it extremely difficult to get comfortable enough to sleep."
Pros: "Entertainment selections"
Cons: "Overbooking the seats. I ordered my tickets month ago. I didn't have a seat when I went to check in. I was the last person on the plane! Your online check-in isn't working and I didn't have a seat until the very last minute!"
Pros: "got there alive"
Cons: "booked British Airways, got American Airlines. I didnt want American airlines. I would have booked American Airlines if I wanted American airways. there was no indication that the flight would be operated by any other than British air until I got to the check counter at British airways, and they sent me to the excruciatingly long check in line for American."
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly! Really impressed with this flight, crew and food"
Pros: "Plane was comfortable and the crew was helpful and friendly"
Pros: "Food was decent, toilets were plenty there"
Cons: "Tvs DIDN'T work for at least half of the passengers (horrible when flying for 7h hours!!!), flight attendants could be nicer, should at least serve drinks every hour (went for 3h without anything to drink!!), the seats shouldn't have the top coming out (my head was bent downwards the whole time, could not sleep For a second)"
Pros: "Plane boarded on time, left with a short delay, but arrived earlier."
Cons: "space in each seat is too limited in economy class. This is true in all airlines but nevertheless I think this can make an unbelievable difference. Eliminating power outlets in economy is really not good. There are people that need to work especially on long flights."
Cons: "Nobody from the airlines was at the airport in lisbon email@example.com - marco bueno"
Pros: "Arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Back to the cattle plane! It should be illegal to pack everyone like sardines."
Cons: "Seat size; food quality, beverage quality and selection (beer/wine) and limiting complimentary alcoholic beverages to just one wine with dinner."
Pros: "Everything, especially the kind service of the attendants. After beverage service with lite fare, attendant asked if I'd like more to drink. I was not in business class, but I no one in the seat next to me which made for great comfort. Overall, great experience with American."
Pros: "Good crew, plane not crowded."
Cons: "when I booked my flight with BA, I didn't know it was to operated by American airlines until I bought the ticket. I don't like that."
Cons: "Broken seat headrest No in-flight entertainment except small screen rows away Reading lights didn’t work properly Flight attendant call signal beeped for first 2+ hours and no one could fix"
Pros: "30 year old plane! Needs to retire this aircraft and move into the 21st century!"
Cons: "No outlets no individual monitors"
Pros: "That it actually happen. Poor communications from British Airways and American Airlines."
Pros: "The availability of entertainment on board. The hot meal was good."
Cons: "The seats were cramped for such a long flight."
Cons: "Food Seats so tight"
Pros: "It was always a close call and almost missed my flight"
Cons: "AA...they delayed flights and were very unprofessional. i will definitely choose BA over AA anyday."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "My connecting flight from london arrived late and the crew made sure i made it onto the flight to stl even though I barely made it to the gate on time."
Cons: "The Crew Tried to take us from our seats so they could sleep in our seats. They tried to relocate us to the last row where the seats don't recline.they were very abusive and rude, we have it all on a body Cam and we'll lodge formal charges against American Airlines once we return to the States. Worse Trip EVER."
Cons: "Only half the crew worked"
Pros: "Didn’t expect a hot dinner or a breffy, so that was nice!"
Cons: "Felt crowded for such a long flight, but the flight crew was great."
Pros: "Empty seat by side"
Cons: "Overhead light not working TV screen not working Very average food"
Pros: "Crew was good, seats comfortable"
Cons: "my entertainment system headset plug was broken and didn't work - a problem for such a long flight!"
Pros: "Having more room for our seats to get comfortable and that we had a dinner that was served. Was not expecting that"
Pros: "Good legroom, nice crew, temperature was comfortable, arrived ahead of schedule even though we sat on the departure tarmac for at least 30 min after we left the gate."
Cons: "Sitting on the tarmac and no individual screens on one flight."
Pros: "No problems. Everything was smooth"
Cons: "Took 35 min to move from the gate with everyone buckled in."
Pros: "How nice the landing was. And how really sort it was"
Pros: "Flight attendants actually seemed to care about what they were doing. Seats were pretty comfy for once."
Cons: "Flight delayed with no explanation or apologies. Putting two and two together from the airport monitors it looks like they had to swap planes due to a scheduling or maintenance issue. Just another chapter in the neverending saga of delayed American airlines flights"
Pros: "Things went very smoothly."
Cons: "Long layover"
Pros: "We arrived safely and so did our luggage."
Cons: "PHL-Lisbon plane left 3 hours late due to CATERING problem. Seats were uncomfortable and food was awful. Lights and entertainment controls at my seat didn’t work."
Pros: "Not much here. The seats were ok, but the rest of the flight the airline was just poor."
Cons: "The airline is so outdated and behind the times of their competitors, their in that they don't have in flight entertainment unless you download their app and give them your email address. On top of that when I originally booked my flights, I had made sure to have 1.5 hr for a layover between my connecting flights. Well, they decided to move up my connector such that I had 25 minutes to run across 2 terminals. They only give you pretzels on the plane, and a single soda drink. They offer you "food bundles" but why do I want to pay $8 for a sandwich that costs $1 to make."
Pros: "The food was better than other international flights I’ve been on."
Cons: "A “broken plane?” Are you kidding me? This was the explanation for a 3 hour delay. A European connection should have either rigorous maintenance routine and/or records or there should be planes ready to fill a unexpected need."
Pros: "Boarding, comfortable seats, clean"
Cons: "Mediocre service, choice of food was down to one option (and I was on the 2nd row)"
Pros: "Crew was great, and flight was relatively on time."
Cons: "Itinerary I received was for British Airways, with whom I have always had excellent experiences. However, I discovered at check-in I would actually be traveling on American Airlines with a different flight no. I had already provided my BA flight numbers to family. No explanation was give to me prior to flight that this would be the case. Food was terrible- even for Coach class - I don't always expect a gourmet meal, but BA was consistently good in the past, so I had positive expectations. My personal entertainment system did not work properly so I could not use it."
Pros: "Much more room in seats than expected"
Pros: "Good seats with a bit more room than most planes. Very good staff onboard."
Pros: "When i got off the plane"
Cons: "Food was worse than prison food. It was a full flight and my entertainment screen did not work for half the flight from phl to man. Several times i was told its bein reset over the hours. Every other screen seemed to be working. I paid $1600 for this flight as it was booked a week beforhand as my mother got really sick and needed to be here. Honestly, never again. Over priced,horrible food and no workin tv. Expect more for the price. Will be my last time using them after years of doin so"
Cons: "Nothing. It was cancelled with little to none explanation"
Cons: "Outdated airplanes"
Cons: "I paid $20,for the in flight Internet and it didn't work. Neither did my monitor."
Pros: "When our flight was delayed in Denver the agent at the check in gate worked very hard to get our flight plans changed with as little impact as possible."
Cons: "We understand that delays happen but due to a delay on American Airlines we have lost our luggage and it doesn't seem likely it will be returned. We had five pieces of luggage lost during our flight from the U.S. to Spain. When we arrived in Madrid we were told that all five pieces had been located. When we went to pick them up the next day there were only four pieces at the airport. We were told the fifth suitcase would be delivered when it was located. It's ten days later and there's no sign of the luggage. It has taken multiple phone calls to get the information about the luggage correct. They assure me that they have everything correctly documented and then when I call back they haven't changed a thing. It has been a very frustrating process overall."
Pros: "Crew did their best!"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed over 3 hours. Other Advantage members have already received bonus miles for their inconvenience. I am also an Advantage member and have not received bonus points and am unable to get ahold of anyone."
Cons: "The flight leg PHL-LIS was the most unconfortable transatlantic trip I ever experienced. The plane was small, tight and no head support made this the worst transatlantic flight of my life, easily comparable to any low cost airline."
Pros: "Getting out of the plane! and the landing was very good."
Cons: "Bad service no entertainment besides a one very childish movie. My tray stayed with me the whole flight, I had almost to beg to take it and never s flight attendant seem happy, pleasant or even profissional. The landing by the pilots was amazing."
Pros: "Crew and promptness"
Cons: "No entertainment for each seat. No cellphone charger."
Pros: "The flight had a delay of 4 hours in Philadelphia. I missed the appointment in Lisbon for which I was flying in the first place. Furthermore, I had purchased the ticket with the intent of flying with British Airways and found myself in a charter from American Airlines. I wish to be compensated for this mistake. Thank you"
Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy gate agents were awesome."
Cons: "Older plane. Very uncomfortable"
Pros: "There were empty seats close to me, so that was great. The food was pretty good and it was nice that the wine was free."
Cons: "The screen on the back of the seat in front of me did not work well at all so it was difficult to watch movies. (I had to press multiple times to change the screen from one display to another.)"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and provided sufficient food and drinks. Plane was late."
Cons: "The plane was late. Took a long time to turn over and the seats were not very comfortable. This was a flight operated by American Airlines"
Pros: "Food and crew were excellent. In flight entertainment vast."
Cons: "Seats were terribly uncomfortable. I was sandwiched between two men in an aisle seat of 4 and our arms were bumping into each other the whole time because the seats were smaller than the people. It was the most back and lower lumbar discomfort I've had."
Cons: "Plane needed to be updated. CRT TVs still? More space in seating for such a long duration flight. Head rests that don't rise more than a few centimeter. What's the point then?"
Pros: "I had never flown coach and decided to try it at a ridiculously low price. It was fine. I slept well and the service was above expectation for Coach"
Cons: "It was difficult to get to the rest room because it was a full flight"
Pros: "Another great flight. On our plane the entertainment was free and I was able to watch a lot of movies. We even landed early"
Cons: "I know it was a very long flight and my butt and legs were hiring by the time we landed. Also I'm lactose intolerant. And I wasn't able to eat any of the food. But it did look good. But overall a very good flight."
Pros: "Flight on time. Crew were pleasant."
Cons: "Usb charger would not charge tablet in flight. Tried multiple sources since there were 4 of us-none worked."
Pros: "Flight was crowded , they stored my bag without fee which was greatly appreciated"
Cons: "Plane was too small for international flight"
Cons: "Had to book a flight to Providence and then rent a car to drive to Boston since there were no other available flights to Boston today."
Pros: "our original flight was cancel due to snow, and we were placed at a hotel and food vouchers were given as well"
Cons: "no head set were passed out making video entertainment useless"
Pros: "I booked the flight specifically because it was advertised and booked on British Airways, which is considered a nice international airline to fly. The flight was swaped to American Airlines, and I was put on an international flight that was archaic, I would have been better off flying a prop plane from the 1970's."
Cons: "I booked the flight specifically because it was advertised and booked on British Airways, which is considered a nice international airline to fly. The flight was swaped to American Airlines, and I was put on an international flight that was archaic, I would have been better off flying a prop plane from the 1970's."
Cons: "The entertainment screen for seat did not work. A crew member indicated that he would try to fix it, but he never reappeared and nothing was done to alleviate the problem. They could not have cared less."
Pros: "Watched movies most of flight and the wine was free. The pilots got us there safely."
Cons: "They never called for groups, except 1st class. After they boarded it was a free for all. Wasn't allowed to check in online, had to wait until I got to airport.The seats just keep getting smaller and smaller. The microwaved tv dinner they served was horrible. Someone pooped on the bathroom floor."
