Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "I requested a vegan vegetarian meal and did not get it. I had to do with the regular meal which had a lot of dairy products to which I am allergic to. The space between rows of seats. It was really crammed in Economy and we are a petite thin family!"
Pros: "Great smooth flight, crew were friendly and many movies and shoes to choose from."
Cons: "Seats are tight and not much leg room for the unfortunate ones who fly Economy class. Food was ok."
Pros: "Crew as usual very kind"
Cons: "They put me on stand by because flight was overbooked"
Pros: "The seat was much better than other airlines' economy seats. Great food and lots of it. Excellent attendants. Zurich is the best planned airport for changing to next flight. I'm going to try to use Swiss as often as I can."
Cons: "Free Wifi."
Cons: "The service could have been so much better. Food was not offered according to seating arrangements and so meal choices were not enough"
Pros: "Both the flight crew and the flight attendants were great. It was the smoothest landing I have had it quite dome time"
Pros: "The boarding process was much easier and faster. No delayed flights."
Cons: "I used the laboratory before takeoff as I was one of the first people on the plane and I forgot to go before I boarded. The hand soap container was empty and I had to tell one of the crew. Shouldn’t that have been taken care of before boarding passengers?"
Cons: "We were happy with everthing"
Pros: "Nothing, flight was cancelled after I electronically checked in"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Pros: "flight was totally fine. Thanks to Swiss hotline, they could find my booking and send me the documents some hours before take off."
Cons: "Kayak has asked for my e-mail and phone number which I provided but never received any order confirmation. Finally it seemed that my flight was never booked. Unluckily Kayak did not forward my contact details to the other brookers in between and definitely not to Swiss. Never Kayak again."
Cons: "Food selection was a bit short"
Pros: "The crew was great and the food was pretty good. The crew did a great job of keeping the lavatories clean and stocked. It was a 10.5 hr flight and they gave us one meal, a snack and a treat. Not a lot but since we were just sitting it was enough food. We had to stop for a meal on the way home from the airport."
Cons: "The seats in the economy cabin are cramped together. If the person in front of your leans back you are almost trapped in your seat. There is little leg room and the cushioning is not enough for a long distance flight. There is no boarding control. People just line up and get on the plane in any order."
Pros: "Very kind crew. Great food. Nice leg room even for economy."
Cons: "This was one of the most empty flights I’ve ever been on. With that, lots of room for carry on baggage. I fail to see why it was necessary at all. It delayed my journey when time was of the essence."
Pros: "We called for seats 23 hours prior to flight. To our amazement we were assigned to an exit row."

Cons: "That it wasn’t a flight to Denver"

Cons: "The flight was delayed 30 minutes. Not once did we hear an apology. They also changed the gate on us last minute and didn’t communicate. We discovered accidentally"

Pros: "Staff and flight was really great. Everything went smoothly and on schedule. The plane was clean."
Cons: "The seating was almost unbearable. So small and cramped. Arm rest didn’t go all the way up so very hard to cuddle with my seat mate (my daughter). I couldn’t even put my arms by my side without pushing my seat neighbors off. Seat in front of me was in my lap. Hard to get out of seat to use restroom. Way to tight. Long flight from Boston to Zurich was so hard to bear. I understand making money...but this is ridiculous!!"
Pros: "Amazing staff .."
Pros: "There was a very long line at the check in counter on the way back. Many people were nervous about missing their flights. Apparently the counter computers were out of order and they only had 2 stations to support the passengers at a very busy time. Other than that, everything was smooth and pleasurable."
Cons: "It was hard to figure out how to request a special meal"
Pros: "100% the best flight experience I've ever had flying. Wish I flew to Europe more so I could fly with Swiss more often. Thanks!"

Pros: "It's swiss. everything works. always."
Cons: "i didn't like leaving switzerland. but stockholm isn't so bad. gate agent can be a bit more careful when letting pre-boards on - too many people flying to scandinavia do not seem to respect boarding priority."
Pros: "The food was good and the crew was nice."
Cons: "No entertainment offered and the seats were cramped."
Pros: "Tried hard but cannot recollect one thing that was better than average."
Cons: "Not even a smile from the purser and one other crew member on the Swedish leg. The captain hurriedly "explained", no one understood him, why we were so delayed, but he did not apologize! Zurich airport has no charging sockets! (Ancient) All of terminal A has not a single one! No one supervised the loading passengers not to interfere with those passing by. It was a complete mess. We took off 50 minutes late from Zurich, with no apparent reason. Worst in years for me. We sat in the plane for 30 minutes and were not offered even water. Big fail! (btw, I am unusually so critical)."
Pros: "Food great!"
Cons: "Limited space , very narrow and not very clean. I seated next to a dog, pet. The whole trip the dog was sitting on the floor next to me:(, although it was a very quiet and good dog. Crew not very friendly . They were tired I believe ."

Pros: "The captain kept us informed of all the delays and changes to the flight. The food was excellent and served at appropriate times. The entertainment system proved enough variety for everyone to relax and enjoy themselves on the flight. The agent seated our entire family of four together in the middle section, which was convenient for all of us."
Cons: "The temperature in the airplane was very cold. Both myself and all my children struggled to stay warm, even with the blankets provided. Is there a way to increase the interior cabin temperature? I also wish they had allowed families with children to pre-board the flight."
Pros: "fast, all good"
Pros: "A very short flight."
Pros: "I have a moderate fear of flying and our plane experienced turbulence while passing through some clouds. I asked the flight attendant if everything was okay, and he smiled and explained that there was some rain on the way to Switzerland. I really appreciate when the crew takes the time to explain what is going on. Knowing what to expect helps me deal with my fear. Because of the flight attendant's willingness to explain the details of our flight, I felt more comfortable during the remainder of the trip."
Cons: "I paid extra for legroom but was in the main walkway so my feet were stepped on for the entire flight."
Cons: "Once again, my flight was late. Four out of the last five trips to Barcelona Swiss had a significant delay (longer than the duration of the trip itself) on at least one of the segments. It's getting a bit hard to believe actually."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seats/Bed. tray table hard to come out. no one answered the bell. Old movies (same 2 yrs ago). 1st meal OK, not great. Second meals not good at all. They should learn service from Lufthansa/United or Emirates. Very Disappointed."

Pros: "They got me an air sick bag since there were none in the pockets. Bathroom was very clean. Chair had bendy headrests. Didn’t have to check my bag."
Cons: "Very turbulent, seat did not stay reclined. On a redeye flight, this was the key misery-maker. Seat in front was reclined so no possible position to sleep from the middle seat, even for a short person."
Cons: "Seats hardly recline. Very difficult to sleep in this red eye flight."
Pros: "Seat 4 A. The flight attendant working first class was very attent"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable but crowded. Was nice to have the built in screen for entertainment."
Cons: "Did not like being bumped to a flight with a five hour layover in SLC. Travel day was already very long. We booked the flight originally based on the shorter layover of an hour and a half. Seemed very inconsiderate."
Pros: "Flight attendants thank SkyMiles members by name at some point during the trip, very friendly."
Cons: "Seats did NOT recline, which seems to be a pretty poor planning for a red eye flight."

Cons: "Aww. The movie I wanted to watch wouldn’t play.."
Pros: "Fantastic crew!"
Pros: "great trip and crew"

Cons: "I was zitting against my Neighbor as the Seats are so narrow."
Pros: "Flight was quiet and comfortable."
Cons: "Felt claustrophobic after a while because guy in seat next to me was rather large and spilling into my seat"
Cons: "I was placed on an earlier flight as soon as I arrived at the Portland airport. The flight was full, there was no room for my bag in the overhead bins. The bag was checked, not to just Seattle but all the way to Venice. Well, surprise, surprise, the bag was lost on the way to Venice. KLM does not allow enough time in Amsterdam for luggage to make a connecting flight."
Pros: "Every Delta employee that we encountered was professional and pleasant"
Pros: "The service was excellent."
Cons: "No leg room"
Pros: "Excellent Service."
Pros: "The entertainment was really good and the service was excellent. Flight attendants were great. Enjoyed my complimentary beverage and on time departure and arrival."
Cons: "It was hard to understand what zone was boarding. Hard to hear and understand made It impossible. And the plane seemed smaller, seats were very close to one another, and it was difficult to get comfortable. I'm not big either."
Pros: "On time, free beer , good price"
Cons: "No movie, no charging telephone"
Cons: "I will make it my sole purpose to let everyone I know and review this on every site. Kayak messed up our flights so badly and then would not fix them. I spent 4 hours being bounced between airlines and travel sites just to be screwed with for a mistake Kayak made and would not fix. Worst company ever!"
Pros: "Got to fly on the a brand new 737-900 and had plenty of room to fit my laptop so I could work. Friendly crew, didn't feel like a farm animal being herded on to a transport to be taken to slaughter like I do on other airlines."

Pros: "fast efficient and directions are pretty clear tons of delicious food available at PDX to bring plane was comfortable and roomy"
Cons: "long lines through security"
Pros: "Getting to the correct destination."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."
Cons: "Seating has gotten WAY too tight. Will not do that again ... discomfort, inability to even stretch a little bit caused painful nerve flare?"
Pros: "I liked the in-flight service and the complimentary snacks and drinks despite the short trip."
Cons: "I did not like that there was not enough room for our 50L Osprey backpacks to be placed under the seats."
Pros: "The crew and the flight were all very pleasant. Highly recommended."
Cons: "Unfortunately the trip was marred by being stuck on the tarmac for the better part of an hour while we waited for out gate. Even when it became available however, we were forced to wait while ATC sent every other plain taxiing through our route which was clearly visible from our vantage point. Not an issue with Delta per se but nonetheless it left us all exhausted and frustrated."
Pros: "Kindness and politeness, on time lots of explaining"
Cons: "Beyond seat space all was perfect"
Pros: "We didnt have food or entertainment because the flight was short."
Cons: "There was nothing that I didn't like."
Pros: "Delta has a good business product. The entertainment system was good. The food was good."
Cons: "The business class crew struck me as distracted and putout to be there."
Cons: "Snacks if possible"
Cons: "I chose my seats when I purchased tickets thru Expedia. Then for some reason Delta wouldn't allow me to keep my seats and I had to have them assigned at boarding. Why? What causes this? I was stuck in the back of the small jet from Minneapolis to Cwa when there were a few open seats in the middle. Disappointed. I won't be choosing Delta in the future!"
Cons: "The airline lost my suitcase and deliver it only 72 hours later... They refused to give me proper compensation for items that were broken..."
Pros: "The crew was very kind"
Pros: "Impressive service... amazing crew, very friendly and professional"
Pros: "Usual faultless KLM experience"
Cons: "Everything was OK"
Pros: "Great airline"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic & therefore delayed take off a little Receiving luggage was slow -@ 35 minutes from landing to luggage claim, so actual arrival was considerably later for those meeting me"
Pros: "Seats were super comfortable, bigger than most planes with extra leg room. Food was excellent and fresh, amazing Dutch cheese sampler was divine. No nonsense staff who had all connecting flight info on hand when we arrived in Abu Dhabi. KLM staff were friendly and efficient. Fabulous airline."
Cons: "I congratulate the KLM crew!"
Pros: "The crew was great. The soecial meal request was hadled well despite oversight."
Cons: "Soecial meal request was made in advance but overlooked. Did not mind it so much as eating less is not a bad idea! To err is human."
Pros: "Seat was comfy and spacious for economy class"
Cons: "Vegetarian meal was okay but could be more enjoyable if served with bread at start of meal."
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seating with enough leg room."
Cons: "Provide dinner before getting to joburg, instead of a snack. Flight arrives late so dinner would be appreciated"
Pros: "Reasonable space in economy class seats"
Cons: "Staff hurrying us up 40 minutes before departing and threatening to take our bags out of the plane in case we didn’t board then. I had to leave my coffee and run."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and food was very good"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on the flight from Vancouver to Amsterdam and this on top of a two hour delay in taking off which led us to have to literally run to our gate in Amsterdam to make the connection to Mumbai"
Pros: "Seat was good"
Cons: "Depart on time (1 hour late), hostess put a laptop in the overhead, which fell out and hit me when the bin was opened"
Cons: "There was no wifi on flight"
Pros: "The flight crew was so friendly and the food was really good."
Pros: "My seat"
Cons: "My suitcase wasn’t in the plane. 8 hours in the plane and no one offered us water. We had to look for flight attendant. Entertainment wasn’t great not too many choices and quality of screens was poor"
Cons: "We were told they were holding our flight, we ran 3 terminals and they’d already left."
Pros: "Nice aircraft"
Cons: "Unexpected refueling stop. 2 hr delay Lost connection Reached destination after 18 hr delay"
Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "Seat confort on long flights, leg rooms,"
Pros: "All good"
Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "Service was poor, seat did not recline, and the food was terrible."
Pros: "The flight AMS to MEX was smooth, very helpful personnel on board, we enjoyed a bit more space and the seat seemed a bit more comfortable."
Cons: "Besides the seat relative comfort, it did not recline much at all, i wondered what the extra money (at least $5 or $600) got us. The food, wine/ beer service was same as regular economy, the boarding took place at same time as economy, no drink before take-off if only sparkling water. And the plane was old generation 747 and the entertainment was same vintage: screen was not very bright and the selection of films was poor. No plug to charge electronics. We were disappointed with KLM when comparing with other airline companies offerings when you book in Premium Economy."
Cons: "wasn't able to take the flight since I missed it"
Pros: "Amsterdam airport and Rome airport were as breeze to navigate, even only knowing English"
Pros: "The flight to Gdansk took off and arrived on-time and the staff were professional."
Cons: "The flight to Amsterdam from Gdansk was late and I had to RUN to the connecting gate. 50 minutes is NOT ENOUGH time to go through passport control."
Pros: "kLM staff was great."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."
Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Flew KLM 27 years ago and the airlines seem to be stuck in the same era. Food is poor quality... Have you recently checked the Gulf carriers."
Pros: "Fabulous trip with friendly, helpful staff"
Cons: "Headset jack only worked if the headset plug was in EXACTLY the right spot."
Cons: "Boarding was a free for all. The travelers did not pay attention to the priorities."
Cons: "At some point the luggage was lost. here."

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "No negative"
Pros: "That we didn't crash"
Cons: "Being delayed and missing my connecting flight. No entertainment onboard (for hours and hours)."
Pros: "Efficiency and speed of boarding was acceptable. I have no complaints about that aspect. The Comfort+ seats were worth the upgrade, pretty comfortable and reasonable legroom unless you have a big carry on stowed under the seat in front of you."
Cons: "The first announcement they made to all of us in the economy section was thay they did not have any headphones for anyone but business class. I was told when I booked the seat that the headphones would be complementary. So I did not bother to bring any assuming they were going to keep their word; I figure I'd make it work and watch a movie without sound. If that isn't bad enough midway through my nine hour flight my monitor went out and would not turn back on."
Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliablity."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."
Pros: "Night flight so no entertainment allowed sleeping"
Cons: "Kosher food could be improved"
Cons: "This survey is broken and keeps sending you back to step 1. Icelandair staff were full of misinformation. Chicken sandwich was full of shrimp, which is a major allergen."
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "I sat next to a very large man which made the flight very uncomfortable. Also, the coffee was only about 1/2 full."
Pros: "Crew was good. I didn’t eat anything"
Cons: "Seats were very cramped"
Cons: "Crew was ignorant and rude. No assistance from crew during boarding. Plane was parked in the farest place of airport where we were brought by 2 buses. Waited last passengers for 40! min and stood in the bus. Flight was delayed."
Pros: "Great crew, everything was pretty much on time. Probably the best and fastest flight we've been on to Europe."
Cons: "The airline doesn't provide food and there wasn't time on the layover to get any. We were prepared, but others might not be."
Cons: "Please offer more gluten free food options. Thanks!"
Pros: "Plenty of room, good entertainment"
Cons: "Some kind of complementary dinner, madness there’s no food on a long haul"
Pros: "Was seated in 38F when I checked in, it was a non-existent seat. A lot of ppl was seated in non-existing seats. Staff had difficulties redo the seating. Flight was delayed with almost an hour. That's just plain bad."
Pros: "They cancelled our flight the day before our flight"
Cons: "Not having our flight cancelled the day before"
Pros: "Really friendly flight crew, great talking with our kids."
Pros: "nothing problematic on this flight, nice leg room!"
Cons: "Short flight limited beverage choice, but pleasant underbooked flight."
Pros: "Straightforward and friendly crew."

Pros: "Comfortable seats. I slept the whole flight!"
Cons: "The layout of the terminal in Reykjavik is obviously under renovation, but they could still make it look presentable"
Pros: "Fantastic free entertainment options"
Cons: "Seats & leg room could be more spacious for such a long flight"
Cons: "First time flying transcontinental without a meal service. Purchased a “pizza” that looked nothing like the picture. One drink service over the course of 7 hours. Brutal."
Cons: "Typical flight now days. Seats are too small for comfort. There needs to be action by regulators of aviation industry to increase space for coach passengers. I think these regulators should be required to fly coach three times a year in a coach seat on flights of three hours or more."
Pros: "We were in an exit row....great legroom."
Cons: "Every food item cost extra. On a 7.5 hour flight I expected some food service. Overhead bins were cramped."
Pros: "Entertainment. Greeted with water bottles during boarding."
Cons: "Rude flight attendants. Beverage service came once over an 8 hour flight and the only food options you had to pay for. Not even a snack for that long of a flight."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "In flight service was not exist They charge high fee for the checked in luggage."
Pros: "The seats were roomy and comfy and I was glad I didn’t have to pay extra for a seat like other airlines."
Cons: "Boarding was very confusing and the customers reacted by plowing Willynilly down the ramp nano seconds after the physically challenged were wheeled on to the plane ignoring the airline staff at the gate. I went with the flow praying I would not get arrested. We boarded a total of 40min late . Second if I am paying for my baggage I should not have to wait 30-40 min for them to come out at baggage claim."
Cons: "I’m 5’4” and didn’t have any leg room & my small carryon didn’t fit under the seat. It was also way too warm. A free snack would be nice for the people who are on a tight budget."
Cons: "The scheduled one-hour layover was ridiculously short. By the time the plane lands a few minutes late, then you actually get off the plane, you still need to take a shuttle bus to the terminal, where you wait in line for Customs/Immigration. I took a few minutes to use the bathroom and buy something to eat, then arrived at my gate to find they were on the final boarding call. Since the entire flight was full of promo videos for Iceland, it would have been nice to have at least a few minutes to look around the airport, and maybe even shop a little."
Pros: "The flight was relatively uncrowded and the selection of movies/shows/music was excellent."
Cons: "Far too many additional costs. This is the only overseas flight I've been on tbat did not serve a meal with the flight without paying an additional fee."
Pros: "Staff were very pleasant. Happy there is now a direct flight from PDX to KEF"
Pros: "Efficient travel from PDX to CDG European Union passport check/entry was well staffed and competent Pricing was competitive"
Cons: "No one at ticket counter in Portland OR; it was closed. I was late - my fault, but there was no one there to help, answer questions or be of service. The on-line information was inadequate re airport arrival time. I used a third party carrier which I will not do again."
Pros: "The entertainment options on board of this plane are great. Kids are welcomed with a bag with toys and crayons."
Cons: "The crew is not particularly caring. They are nice but we travelled with a toddler and the seat rests in between seats don’t lift. Try to let a toddler sleep on a single seat... They offered no help. The plane was too hot when we were boarding. Their commercials for Iceland are relentless."
Pros: "Good price, staff was friendly and accomodating. Free in flight Wi-Fi and entertainment."
Cons: "There was no food provided for the length of flight."
Pros: "Moved to emergency row, lots of room"
Cons: "Very dry in the plane, hard on my sinuses"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable and there was enough space and It was clean. I enjoyed the short films about activities in Iceland"
Cons: "The food offerings were cold, dried out and expensive. I had brought me own so it was ok for me. 2 beverages services on a 7.5 hour flight seemed not enough"
Pros: "I slept the whole way."
Cons: "There was a piece of lettuce shellacked to my seat which I could not scrape off. Otherwise I was fortunate enough to sleep the whole time. Would it kill Iceland air to offer a small snack? For those who didn't know there's no food or didn't have time to pack anything or don't have extra money this could be detrimental."
Cons: "We boarded the plane and sat on the tarmac for 1.5 hours before having to disembark due to a mechanical failure. We were told by the Iceland Air supervisor inside the terminal that no one would miss their connecting flights. Not true. We were also told that if anyone did miss a connecting flight, everything would be taken care of and ready to go once we reached Iceland Not true. The crew didn't hand blankets out to everyone who needed one. A single beverage was offered for an almost 8 hour flight. No snacks or meals. The attendants were the least friendly and helpful of any I've experienced. They didn't make sure bags were stowed. They didn't check to make sure seat belts were on. I don't even know why the airline bothered with attendants. They did nothing."
Pros: "Entertainment system Restrooms"
Cons: "Paying extra for food and beer"
Pros: "Friendly crew, punctual and organized boarding, ontime departure and arrival. Quick luggage."
Cons: "First class seats don’t adequately recline to make sleep more comfortable."
Pros: "Service was great, plenty leg room, restrooms were kept clean for the entire flight."
Cons: "Boarding the bus was crowded, disorganized"
Cons: "No leg room"
Pros: "Great crew and entertainment."
Cons: "Flying across the ocean and not even peanuts given as complimentary. :/"
Pros: "The separate cabin"
Cons: "The business seats did not have leg elevation & did not lie flat making sleep difficult. Comfort was compromised since I could not elevate my legs"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "My luggage got ripped/torn. The Glasgow ground staff was not helpful. Left with a torn luggage bag."
Pros: "Our seats barely reclined-same as economy Couldn't stretch legs due to bulkhead. While purpose of Business Class was to enable sleeping. Without stretching out, that didn't happen"
Pros: "Everything A-OK."
Pros: "Cost was good."
Cons: "Not enough water served. Minimum serve."
Pros: "See comments above."
Cons: "See comments above."
Pros: "Upgrading to Comfort Plus provided a more comfortable seating for the long flight. Service crew was good. Plane was clean."
Cons: "Movie selection was mediocre. Food selection was okay, but could have been better."
Pros: "Leg room was better than most airlines (which is a big for me as I am nearly 6'3" or 191.5 cm). The service was generally friendly and good."
Cons: "There aren't anymore customary meals - you must pay for literally everything on the flight (except water). Moreover, the prices of everything are generally what you would expect - high. Though I cannot complain too much as the overall price of the flight was generally very good."
Cons: "First time for an international flight where we weren't given food. Not even a snack. That's a bit ridiculous to me. Everything else was okay."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and quick. There was a lot of room on the plane."
Cons: "There was some confusion at the Iceland airport because there were two gates areas close together that provided a place to wait for a bus to take passengers to the plane. Our flight was delayed and there were no announcements until after it should have taken off. In the end, it was only delayed 50 minutes. There were people from another flight mixed in with our line and they nearly missed their own plane. It would have reduced stress to have more direction from the staff."
Cons: "Did not realize that free meals were not provided. The trip ended without eating for 9 hours, as no hot meals were offered."
Pros: "Crew was super nice"
Cons: "Don’t pack people in like sardines! Our seats were so close it was in humane! Also we were in the back of the plane and it was uncomfortably hot! Why are there no individual a/c blowers over each seat!! Because of the heat and the cramped seats had to keep getting up and standing in the back because I was so claustrophobic!! Miserable, miserable, miserable!!!"
Pros: "Club Europe- excellent attentive crew, excellent food!"
Cons: "Nothing! They were the best!"
Pros: "Breakfast was great, quick loading , great staff ,leg room was much better for my 6’1” husband with a knee replacement."
Cons: "Due to my husband’s knee replacement, he is always taken to another area to be searched and checked while his wallet and all of his valuables ate left on the conveyer belt unattended and could be stolen by anyone. I grabbed his stuff but they didn’t know who I was. They need a more secure policy."
Pros: "Crew were helpful. Food was OK. I had Hindu meal and it was hot and tasty but salty."
Cons: "Seats could have been more comfortable. I am not a tall person so seat spacing was not an issue, but for any one more than 5'8'' tall, seat spacing may be uncomfortable."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Leg room!"
Pros: "Nothing. The fact that I booked my ticket via British Airways, but operated by Iberia made my situation very confusing. Iberia didn't offer me a connection flight from MAD to VLC when there was a 6 hours delay from JFK to MAD."
Cons: "Partner airline should have a better process to help customers when the help is needed the most! There was neither ownership nor responsibility held accountable by Iberia to help me find a connection flight between MAD to VLC. I had to pay for a Renfe ticket on my own to get to VLC - Nightmare!"
Pros: "Can’t complain having a whole row for myself in such a long flight and amazing crew"
Cons: "Better food better seats and bad movies. Nothing good to pass the time"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Cramped conditions."
Cons: "A 2-hour layover was too short. We experienced crazy long lines for: the bus between terminals, immigration passport review; passport review before the metal detector, and detailed tests on permitted volumes of shampo, and toothpaste. The agent forced me to check a normally permitted carryon bag, then the bags took 45 minutes to be placed on the turnstile after the flight. Not an efficient airport."
Pros: "Crew was nice!"
Cons: "Our baggage was delayed coming off the plane in Seattle and getting to the carousel. When we were finally able to claim our baggage in customs, the gate said it was too late to re-check them through to Seattle, so they had to re-book us for a later flight. So after 13 hours of travel (with a toddler, which makes everything harder), we had to wait an unexpected 3 hours at Seatac to board a plane home. It was terrible. The BA representative at the baggage claim was incredibly dismissive and rude to everyone. It really was miserable."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Smooth flight. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "My baggage couldn't be checked straight through to the states. Had to pick up bags, go through security again, which limited time spent in the airport to enjoy duty free shopping etc. Baggage allowances were different between British Airways and Virgin Atlantic, which necessitated checking out carry on bags. The gate agent was accommodating and checked them at no charge, but that could have been an expensive proposition if she wasn't perceptive. All food and drinks on this flight are for purchase vs. complimentary"
Pros: "Flew from Gatwick - good airport"
Cons: "Too many children on board"
Cons: "Possibly cleaner toilets......"
Pros: "Staff is genuinely pleasant. Perhaps since I was traveling with a four-year-old."
Cons: "At least give us coffee, having to pay for absolutely everything isn’t particularly nice after a long flight from NY. Perhaps offer complimentary coffee to travelers who connected from elsewhere, at least."
Pros: "The flight was very short compared with LHR to LAX, so, I don't have much to say about it."
Pros: "The crews were good and the que to board the flight was well organized."
Cons: "Uncomfortable chairs with thin backing that allowed me to feel everything the person behind me was doing. The entertainment screens were not very clear."
Pros: "Nothing - even in so called Club Europe."
Cons: "Cheapness and shabbiness in every respect. A sad downward spiral for a once impressive airline."
Pros: "Snagged another aisle seat for this relatively short hop to Stockholm folllowing the trans-Atlantic leg from Boston."
Cons: "Some kind of free food might have been nice."
Pros: "Was not able to check in for the flight on the ba.com. Called BA on the phone - no help. Person in the Geneva airport - unprofessional, unhelpful, had to go to another agent to get seat assignment. British Airlines - disappointing."
Cons: "Customer service - useless and with attitude. Couldn’t check in for the flight either on ba.com or over the phone."
Cons: "On arrival to Heathrow we sat on the tarmac for an hour and a half as apparently there was not enough staff to connect the plane to the gate.The computers to tell us where our connecting flights were, were down so they could not tell us which gate to go to. When we finally disembarked, I was not allowed to my gate despite it being in the same terminal and having 40 mins to go.I was directed to a BA desk to get another flight. After 15mins waiting here the staff were rude and announced they would be closing. I finally was directed to departures to be told the only option was the same time tomorrow. Terrible journey!"
Cons: "Small plqne"
Pros: "It was only a 90 minute flight"
Cons: "I paid for the exit row and did not get it. Originally I paid for 10B and 10C which were on the exit row on the seating chart. They then cancelled my seats so I had to go back online and pick again. They wanted to charge me again so I called BA and got seats 10D and 10E which were also supposed to be exit row seats. They even asked me if my wife and I were physically able to follow flight crew instructions for the exit row. When we boarded we found out 10D and 10E were now the row in front of the exit row which did not recline. After being packed like sardines on the flight from Philly to London I was looking forward to some legroom. It could not have been any worse."
Cons: "terribly small seats!!! I had a gout attack after this flight. horrible!"
Cons: "Three hours late."
Pros: "Effective communication from the pilot"
Cons: "Still mind blown that they lost our suitcase."
Pros: "very friendly and efficient crew"
Cons: "mediocre food, chaotic boarding area"
Cons: "I don’t want to pay for coffe and a muffin"
Cons: "I find it hard to believe that BA requires passengers to purchase basic needs like water. That was a huge disappointment."
Cons: "My bag was missing for five days back in Chicago."
Pros: "Comfortable flight with personal entertainment screen. Also had an extra seat next to me to spread out!"
Pros: "It was my second flight with BA that day. After first one I said never again, but I didn't have a choice and got on the flight from London to NYC. Everything was great. Food was very good, but my highlight was the crew!!! Super professional, super nice and It's them who will make me fly with BA again"
Cons: "I can't think about one thing ."
Cons: "No USB port for charging phone and poor audio watching entertainment"
Pros: "We made it safely"
Cons: "The flight was delayed The seats were very uncomfortable in priority section. The entertainment was not working for a good 2 hours, untill the engineer reset the system. No USB or outlet ports for charging the devices. Excuse me, but it is 2017."
Pros: "There is nothing to like. I paid for three return tickets from Amsterdam to London. My family and I were at airport and couldn't get on the flight. Even return trip wasn't honored. I made a mistake by choosing this carrier and would never do this or even recommend British Airline to anyone. . What disaster."
Pros: "Leg room seats"
Cons: "London transfer had to go through security again almost missed flight I'm sure some people didn't make it"
Pros: "Quiet, adequate legroom, comfortable climate and seat."
Cons: "Food and drinks only for purchase. Would have been nice to at least have been offered a glass of water."
Pros: "Efficiente flight"
Cons: "No movies"
Pros: "More leg room."
Cons: "Strange hot sandwiches! Only small amounts of liquid at one time."
Pros: "Having a little bit more room, footrest and legrest do really make a difference on the long haul flight. The little touches like being greeted with a glass of wine or water, having proper silverware with the main meal really mitigate the general misery of long haul flying. The main meal is really quite delicious as well. You also get provided with socks, toothbrush, mask and nice headphones."
Cons: "Honestly, the seats are really quite hard and could use a little more padding! They give you a little cushion which I ended up sitting on to relieve pressure on my tailbone. The coffee that came with the box lunch was fine but if you wanted cream you were out of luck. Instead a tiny amount of milk was provided. At least you got some caffeine!"
Cons: "Food and entertainment were not a part of this flight. Rating of 1 star means I could not evaluate it."
Pros: "Great crew, loaded early, smooth flight, landed early"
Cons: "Felt abused with petty charges. Charged for WATER- even those peanut packs were not free. Checked luggage fees were up to 100 British pounds per bag. Legroom was barely OK. Entertainment was a decade old system. Not a good value."
Pros: "London to New Orleans direct is an excellent route."
Cons: "Food was poor."
Cons: "Did not get the seats I paid for"
Pros: "We fly a lot, over 20 flights last year. I was very disappointed in this flight. No water was offered during the entire flight (2 and 1/2 hrs). We had to track down a steward to buy a bottle of water and some lunch. At checkin I was told my new suitcase, a Travel pro carryon was too big to take on. As we boarded I saw many people with bigger carryons. Who makes these rules so inconsistently? On the positive side, we had very comfortable seats, but I did pay extra for them!!"
Cons: "The landing was horrible. Skidded and rough, glad to get off this plane. Not sure I will fly BA again."
Pros: "Once you get to the plane the service is incredible. The planes are comfortable and the food is worth paying for."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant and polite. Energetic, good ambassadors for BA."
Cons: "The plane was dirty. My tray table hadn't been wiped down in a long time, and the prior passenger's used flight socks had not been removed from the drawer. The pillow was laughable - - flat as a pancake. . One of the business class lavs was out of service. . This was an overused 777 desperately in need of a refurbishment. And don't get me started on the ridiculous 2-4-2 seating in business class. How does BA think it can get away with it, when competitors offer 1-2-1?"
Pros: "Lots of luggage space, even in the back. Infotainment system takes away the pain of flying steerage class."
Cons: "Was in the final row of a 777-400 series. Super small 4 across seats and limited recline."
