"It took an hour for our luggage to arrive on the carousel. Everything else was fine. But I’ve never had to wait so long for my luggage. At the end of a very long travel day it was not what I would have hoped for."
Cons: "I dont know WHY Delta changed my flight with ALIITALIA, but, DON'T DO IT DELTA. The check in process took an hour, not talking about the line, the ACTUAL checkin at the counter. I couldn't complete my web checkin at the AliItalia web site. Landed in JFK, still sucks as an airport, nobody helps, nobody explains anything, very poor signs and instructions, Global Entry kiosk are hard to spot. My connection ticket didn't have the TSA/PRECHECK legend, went to AliItalia counter, the lady at AliItalia barely said anything when I asked for help with that, her immediate answer was to disengage and sent me to another terminal "to talk to Delta". She didn't explain or didn't want to give an explanation until I started to act as an already 9hr30min flight frustrated customer in a very old, very poor plane with poor food service. Again, I bought an over $1,000 ticket with DELTA, NOT ALIITALIA, if Delta send people with their "partners" at least make sure that they are taken care of properly."

Pros: "See above."
Cons: "Nothing. Really."
Pros: "Crew were helpful and pleasant"

Cons: "Not being to check our tickets on line"
Pros: "I got home"
Cons: "Seats were tiny as hell"
Cons: "About 7 of 8 crew staff was ladies in their 60’s. Grumpy old women. In case of emergency I would help to help them instead of crew members helping me off the plane."
Pros: "Seat 2G Orderly boarding and plane clean"
Cons: "Asked to have all the food (appetizer, main course, etc) served together , as they advertise, but was told that service wasn't available. Ordered dinner, was almost as tasty as a Stouffers meal (it was some type of glop of lamb). 7 hours into flight the menu advertised a warm chocolate chip cookie, asked for one was told they THOUGHT they were out, came back about an hour later said the found one, but it wasn't warm, so I passed (not a real fan of eating food they found) About 8 hours into flight , the attendant said out of the blue that they were sorry about not providing the meal all together as requested, but that the other attendant didn't know they offered that service."

Pros: "That I was able to sit next to my husband"
Cons: "Everything else."
Pros: "Delta Studio"
Cons: "Food choices were not appetizing."
Pros: "Received sky boarding despite having a seat near the front. I like the smaller plane because there was plenty more leg room where I was (9c). A variety of free snacks were offered along with starbucks coffee, score! I wish I'd brought my ipad to take advantage of the free wi-fi and movies in-flight. Take-off & landing were very smooth despite a delay upon take-off. Made my connecting flight with time to buy lunch."
Pros: "Nothing more than expected."
Cons: "Food could be improved."
Pros: "It was wonderful to have a non-stop from Rome to Atlanta. The flight was comfortable and punctual. The in-flight entertainment was very good and helped pass the long flight."
Cons: "I liked the complimentary beverage service and many meal and snack interludes, although the food was sub par, especially the snack. I don't know how you can mess up crackers, but they were terrible, even slathered with the accompanying marinara. Also not sure that I ever met a shortbread cookie I didn't like until this trip; why lace it with artificial strawberry flavor?"
Cons: "Delayed over 3 hours with no explanation from Delta or any information. Once boarding finally began, another 30 min went by before they closed the plane again without any explanation. As a connecting flight after a long international flight, it was awful. Unfriendly and impatient staff."
Cons: "Awful experience. Delta left us stranded on the runway for 3 hours. Pathetic airline."
Cons: "Why can't all the Delta gates be near each other. My connecting flight was very far."

Pros: "The crew positive attitude"
Cons: "We understand the COVID-19 crisis but a drink on board other than water will not have bid cost impact on Air Canada, for instance juice or cola,... Also, access on internet on board is now payable -$25 for the flight is exaggerated, it should be free knowing the limited number of passengers on board"
Cons: "I was supposed to have wheelchair assistance. None there. Flight was on time. Passenger assistance is AWFUL!!!"
Pros: "A340-600 is a wonderful plane, but economy is too cramped. The stewards do their job of feeding the "cattle", which lacks any personal service."
Cons: "The terminal updates of terminal and gate notifications were wrong! If we had followed your email and gone to T3, we could have missed our flight and be worn out from changing terminals."
Pros: "The crew is always pleasant and friendly. The in-flight entertainment is great and the food is good too."
Cons: "The Lufthansa rep at the Rome airport did not try to accommodate me when I asked to change my flight. My daughter was flying on a later flight and in order to travel together I asked if there was any way one of us could switch. Before even looking she said NO, there is no way. I know that it can be"
Pros: "Seat 16 B was great"
Cons: "My luggage did not make it"
Pros: "The flight attendants were professional, courteous, attentive, and the only parts of this experience that made this flight bearable."
Cons: "My partner and I orginially selected a window and middle seat. When we boarded the plane we were switched to the two middle seats of a 4 seat row. Honouring our original requests would have made a world of difference. If Lufthansa cannot do this much then I do not want to fly with them."
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent. Top notch in customer service. They had a very difficult lady constantly wanting help with meals and food issues, and they were very professional and efficient."
Cons: "Check in was late in Rome. Arrived at 5am for a 8:30 flight, and they would not check us in until 6 am. Don’t understand the “arrive 3 hrs prior” when this happens."

Pros: "Not much good to say about these connections when the Rome flight runs late."

Pros: "Food is provided"
Cons: "Delayed 6 hours on the plane"
Pros: "I fly constantly -This was my first time on Luftansa & this is my go to airline from now on. I was flying coach & I felt like I was in first class. (Although nothing beats first class international"

Pros: "Everything on Rome to Frankfurt was fine."
Cons: "My passport was stolen on the overnight train I took to get to the airport. It wasn't until I was off of the train that I went to grab my passport and credit card and realized my tiny little purse was gone. I had to rush to the US Embassy, get a new passport, and then rush back to the airport. I didn't arrive until 40 minutes after my flight had left and I was a nervous wreck. Unfortunately Lufthansa staff could not care less. The guy at the ticket counter even looked at my new urgent passport that had the issue date listed as today, so clearly this all had just happened as it was only 10:50am still. What did Lufthansa do? Well they told me if I wanted to fly out the same day, I would have to pay 2700 Euro additional! My jaw dropped and then he said I could fly out tomorrow for an additional 675 Euro instead. I was still in shock as I felt like I had just been taken advantage of with my stolen passport and credit card and now it's happening again. I asked if there was any way he could find something cheaper and he said that I paid so cheap for this flight that I would need to speak with the agency I booked with to help me out more and then he dismissed me. Let me have you know that I booked this fare during an amazing sale that Lufthansa was having and I booked it directly through their website and now it was being held against me. There was no offer to pay something like a $200 change your flight fee. Instead he let that plane leave with an empty seat because I didn't have the 2700 Euro to pay him. Here I was, alone, nervous, in a foreign country, and I had to get my thoughts together the best I could and I immediately started looking up my own flights. I ended up having to book a flight with a different company and just forfeiting any kind of credit that Lufthansa would have applied to their overly exorbitant priced flights. Good job Lufthansa for being the worst customer care service I have ever experienced... and I have flown over 20 airlines and over 100 flights."
Pros: "No entertailment because of the short flight, but free beer or wine was nice and a sandwich!"
Cons: "Our flight was scheduled to leave at 7:00 a.m. We arrived at the airport at 4:00 a.m. to check in. When we tried to check in the lady told us our reservation was canceled. Luckily an airport employee worked his magic and had us added back onto that flight."
Pros: "Efficient loading. Flight was on time. Nice crew."
Pros: "The perfekt assistance we needed in Munich. We were asisted by an exellent young man."

Pros: "The flight went by very quickly and peacefully."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind and that's a good thing!"
Cons: "Lufthansa cancelled our return flight from Rome two days ahead of departure. Spent the whole day trying to contact them by calling from Rome on American phone which ended up costing over $100, eight times the.l hold was over an hour after which Lufthansa just hanged up. Here is German "reliability, responsibility, and organization" in action!"
Pros: "I like Lufthansa. We were treated very well."

Cons: "Space between seats and leg room. Very compact for an international flight."

Cons: "Traveled with elderly father...all great until Boston Logan Airport. Wheel chairs supposedly went to wring gate. 5 or 6 needed chairs. Waited min of 10-15 minutes standing!!! My father requested to use bathroom... Boston Lufthansa staff refused to let him step back in plane leaving him standing and very uncomfortable!!! Staff on plane and others applauded at how poorly handled this was. Then finally got chair.. At end of ramp saw a min of 4 chairs and 3 people doing nothing... Still had 4 or 5 people waiting for assistance. Our assistant did not speak English... Or minimal... I told him where we needed to go for scheduled bus he did not listen... Dropping my Dad a significant distance from where I told him... He refused to take him there. Other wheel chair person was dropped there.. So not out of range... But found out they were dropped at wrong stop too!!! However... I believed that most was Logan's fault... But the lack of compassion on Boston Lufthansa was very upsetting to all... But .. Still believe Lufthansa is a wonderful airline and I will in time try to forgive that agent."

Pros: "Good food and beverages"
Cons: "Headphones are terrible"
Pros: "the boarding went very smoothly. We arrived at our destination on time."
Cons: "I felt quite thirsty and didn't get anything to drink on the short flight. Most of the flight I slept so I'm not sure if I just missed the serving of a drink. I almost was not able to fit our carry on luggage since it only fit in the center bins which were almost all full. There was no entertainment system."
Pros: "Crew and staff were very nice, accomadating. Clean and pleasant flight."
Cons: "Bus to boarding."
Cons: "Flight repeatedly delayed and then cancelled due to United technical issues. Was rebooked on another carrier, but United couldn't get our baggage back to us in time to make that flight thanks to the absolute circus that ensued at the gate. 9:55am flight turns into a night at the airport hotel with vouchers that would only allow us to eat from the horrible buffett (ordering off the hotel menu was not covered). Put on same flight the follow day. Wait for it.... Delayed again (no weather). Would never have booked a flight with United in the first place due to similar issues in the past , but got duped when I booked this Luftansa flight and found out after the fact that it was operated by United. Never again, again."
Pros: "The staff was attentive and concerned when my husband became a little dehydrated on board. They brought him fruit and water and came back to check on him."
Cons: "App is terrible. Messed up our selected seats. Airline did not offer to help change our seats or provide any other accommodation. My traveling companions are over 6 feet tall and were very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Seating was good and reasonably comfortable."
Cons: "However the food was 99% sugar in the form of cookies and other over processed food. The entertainment was so disappointing with no back of the chair screen that if I could give it a 0 rating I would."
Pros: "Overall a nice and good flight"
Cons: "Just a detail, my “head holder” (not too sure how it is called) would not hold in position. Also, staff was a bit slow to come after being called, I had to go and ask for water by myself at some point since no one was coming after 15minites of waiting..."
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was amazing"
Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"

Pros: "Planes were on time and connections made."
Cons: "One bag delayed as not put on flight and food could be better."

Pros: "Professional crew. Good boarding."
Cons: "No entertainment on board in business. Stale buns - staff unapologetic. Older 737 with uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "We are guessing they either overbooked or they didn't have sufficient passengers on a Tuesday afternoon who's final stop was Glasgow. They rebooked him for 1200 the next day. DFW to MN, St Paul to Schipole, Amsterdam to final destination, Glasgow. So he ends up having to pay for another Lyft back to our apartment in Dallas, then another additional one for the 12 noon flight the next morning. If he didn't have family living in Dallas, he would've incurred a hotel fee too."
Cons: "He was bumped to the next day due to his flight being cancelled. Then re-booked the next day, with an additional layover. Then due to a 32 minute layover that left 3 minutes sooner..."

Pros: "I liked the leg room, I liked the customer service of the crew, smooth flight."
Cons: "Both ways up and down I struggled with over-head luggage space. We were allowed a cabin bag and a small hand-bag in the flight but as we were among the last half of the passengers to board the flight we couldn't find anywhere to keep our luggage and the crew had to take them away from us to store them somewhere at the back far away from our seats. As a result we had to wait until all the passengers got off the plane to get back our luggage and we were the last two passengers to get off. Unpleasant!"
Pros: "Overall, good flight"
Pros: "Average service and food quality"
Cons: "Inside the business class cabin Boeing 777 only one toilet facility available. People is queuing."
Pros: "Flights left on time, arrived ahead of time. Seats comfortable. Baggage arrived quickly. No charge for wine/beer, although I do not imbibe when flying long distance. Food ok for airline food."
Cons: "Unable to pick seats in advance,, were assigned seats that did not recline for 11 hour flight. One bathroom not functioning. Very limited movie choices for inflight entertainment. Seat belts much shorter than other airlines, so very confining, unable to loosen to relax in any position other than sitting straight in seat. In Rome had to check in & go through security at Terminal 5 then get bussed to Terminal 3. Only airport where we had to take out all electronics, including converter plugs, headphones, etc, place in a flimsy clear plastic bag ( that broke ) to go through security. Line to check bags pretty slow for number of passengers. Glad we had plenty of time."
Cons: "My family of five spent a lovely week in Sardinia. Our return flight took us through Rome. We were boarded an hour ahead of departure from Rome for our 10+ hour flight, only to be held on the ground for a one hour delay. Barring equipment malfunction, this is a totally unacceptable way to treat people. Be assured that I will avoid Rome in the future if at all possible. I trust that Rome nor Italy need my tourist dollars and there are many lovely other places to spend them. Exceedingly disappointed, Pam Just"
Pros: "The seats, staff, entertainment, particularly liked that you served hot chocolate! The staff were very polite, friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Food -vegan menu was bad for n the outgoing flight, better on the incoming flight. No vegan food available on domestic fight. Sitting in the aisle seat meant often people pushing past your seat."
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "In-flight system had some errors"
Cons: "Delay in take off 45 min!!!!"
Pros: "Crew attentive. The delay was due to airport conditions in FCO, cannot be blamed on Air France."
Cons: "Food. For a 2-hour plus flight, from 11am to 1:30pm, we got 20gr pretzel sticks. This is ridiculous. Don't pretend you are not low-cost! Formerly, before the Joon failed (thank God) venture, Air France had real sandwiches around that time of the day on that line."

Pros: "Had decent room space seats comfortable"
Cons: "My luggage could have arrived for a start"

Cons: "Too much time spent at boarding. On luggage missing."
Cons: "If you have to change planes and Paris is your middle person. Leave at least 2-3 in between the two flights otherwise you might not make it."

Cons: "Food and seating"
Pros: "Food and entertainment was awesome"

Pros: "We were a little delayed, so I read my book. Not for long though as I was really tired after my flight from Los Angeles. I fell asleep right after take-off and didn't wake until we landed. Best way to fly :-)"
Cons: "Very little legroom for a 6'1" guy. Would have liked a bit more space, but I guess I was too tired to let it bug me."
Cons: "Being in the middle of the 4 seats with guys on both sides. They tend to restrict the space by using the arm rests."

Pros: "Staff was so helpful and attentive to our needs.Providing service with a smile."
Pros: "That I was able to sleep a bit on the flight - and that we gained an hour."
Cons: "It left at 6 am. Which means we had a wake up call from the airport hotel at 3:30 am to stand in line with hundreds of others. The Air France app on my phone didn't let me pre- check in."
Pros: "Their evacution video is interesting"
Cons: "The aircraft is a bit old and somehow the flight crew didn’t offer me the full menu as the menu describe. First time encounter that in a business class"
Cons: "I am not sure why this happened, but our daughter, travelling away from home for the first time, was targeted at every step of her journey. From the terminal in DCA to Cincinnati, to CDG. Delta/Air France clearly singled her out. i am outraged! I have traveled many, many times and have sent hundreds of students on nearly the same trip -- and none have had as rough a time as she had. They will be hearing from me."
Cons: "1/ the transfer crew needed 50 mn to enter my son’s visa number in her computer and she almost let us miss our flight 2/ we were separated (party of 3, my son being 5 YEARS OLD) - how can they allow a boarding and expecting my 5 year old to do a 10 hours flight BY HIMSELF???? 3/ no kids menus, even if I had ordered it before 4/ food in general was very mediocre 5/ crew was unprofessional and they acted bored"
Pros: "Very helpful cabin crew and did well to communicate in English to me. Flight was on time and landed ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Entertainment system had to be rebooted as it did not work Small screen handset was not working for the entire flight food selection was not as big as KLM or China Eastern Bathroom on board was smaller than KLM or China Eastern which meant changing into more comfortable clothing for the night flight"
Pros: "Boarding for BUsiness class was fine. Seating was cramped."
Cons: "As I said in my rating, seating was cramped. Food was mediocre. Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Waited a while before take off."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 times and when I was finally put on a flight that was leaving, they failed to check the connection in Paris (Left me 10 minutes to get from the aircraft to the other plane!) I was moved to SAA in the end after a truly traumatic time in Johannesburg. This is not the first time I have suffered at the hands of Air France sadly. Needless to say, I wont be booking with Air France again."
Cons: "Booked assistance and got dumped at the gate 3hrs before departure, no English spoken and didn't even ask if my mum needed the bathroom or if we wanted to do some shopping. Just in a rush to get rid of us. Flying only KLM from now."
Pros: "The food, entertainment, and service. Waited for me after almost missing my flight."
Pros: "Offering a drink on such a short flight is appreciated albeit unusual these days. Crew was very professional and friendly."
Pros: "Nothing particular"
Cons: "Nothing particular"
Pros: "The crew was Nice onboard But in the AirPort No Good at all.."
Cons: "People in CDG AirPort Seen so Rude or stressfull, Well also a flight almost 3 hours with out entreteiment .. boring .."
Cons: "Some toilet facilities out of order and some slow service"
Pros: "1) USB charger and electric outlet 2) Availability of 2-across economy seats (for a price) 3) Vegetarian dinner option available and not too bad 4) Flight arrived on-time"
Cons: "1) No on-board wifi 2) Not much seating room - very thin 3) 45 minutes late taking off"
Pros: "All crew I interacted with was great, friendly, and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was late. Boarding very slow. Entertainment was ok by today's standards. Each seat had a display, but movie selection was not great. For a French airline I was looking forward to breakfast -- maybe some nice pastries or at least a decent croissant with jam. None such. It was disappointing. Meals were not impressive either, but the complimentary wine was good."
Pros: "The fact that the plane made it to SFO"
Cons: "Downgrade without notice or consent separating family. Paid full fare for family to travel business class together. AF without our knowledge downgraded one member, separating a mother from her 3 year old daughter. They offered no compensation, no apology, and CDG ground crew was terribly rude. All anyone said was, nothing to be done, now please Leave"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Plane late departing allegedly because of cleaning the plane, but why was the cleaning done that late? Also, ground crew remarkably uninformed about what was going on in the plane. Poor communication between plane and ground crew. No explanation from pilot as to continuing reason for delay even after we boarded. Departure time, 1.00 pm, boarded at 1.10, actual departure time 1.45, causing me to almost miss my connection and definitely causing my bags to miss the connection."
Pros: "Amazing service, seat and FOOD"
Pros: "Lovely crew, clean toilets"
Cons: "It's an a380, stains everywhere, aisles between seats narrow even for business, caos at CDG, no clear queues, ground staff shout at passengers, food selection good but huge gap between describtion and reality, in JFK we waited for 30 minutes cause the docking spot was too narrow for the captain, sky priority? The economy got their bags before 1st and business."
Cons: "The flight arrived late with no clear explanation as to why. Then there was no EU queue at immigration, so more time wasted."
Pros: "Cabin Crew and food selections were top notch"
Cons: "Seat configuration as a first class ticket was awful. Same configuration as economy class but by leaving the middle seat empty constituted first class. I'm 6'-1" and missed the legroom...."
Pros: "The crew was very comfortable speaking two languages and friendly. They also had air conditioning! This was great because it was strangely hot in Paris and we were sweating profusely. And our last air france experience we were so hot and it was aweful. Even though it was like an hour and a half flight they still served us sandwiches ,really good."
Pros: "movies were great, watched a lot of them food, while nothing to write home about, was at least tasty and not inedible the staff was great, friendly, welcoming, hard working loved that we could have wine and snacks"
Cons: "we had paid for the exit row and had a luxurious amount of room. But when we tried to sleep, our fellow passengers came and stood at our feet and talked so loudly that we could not possibly sleep. They stayed there for more than an hour. Would have loved for the staff to maybe ask them to tone it down, if not move."
Pros: "You get everything you would expect in this kind of flight in term of meals, comfort and entertainment."
Cons: "The flight left half an hour late because of weather conditions. But it is more an airport issue rather than an airline one."
Pros: "there were problems getting the tickets issued in Rome. the worker at checkin kept us for 20 minutes without telling us what was going on. the flight left the gate on time, but then we sat for an hr before leaving. no information was given as to why the flight attendants were rude. after landing we sat for an hr on the runway waiting for a gate to be available."
Pros: "I have been Flying Blue platinum for six years in a row. I often wondered why I never got a complimentary upgrade... Well, I can no longer complain: I was very kindly invited to move across that curtain. Of course, in short haul (2-hours+) A321 flights, all seats are created equal, business or main cabin... But the attention was there, excellent service, and gourmet food too. The whole experience was great. I'll go on flying Air France with fewer regrets."
Pros: "should let first board passenger in rear rows and not everybody together."
Pros: "The crew was nice .."
Cons: "We were very late for take off. Don't understand why No USB plug. No charging spots. No video. No movie. No radio. No wifi."
Pros: "Complimentary entertainment"
Cons: "Major delays"
Pros: "Complimentary entertainment"
Cons: "Major delays"
Pros: "I purchased business class food was uneatble cald sandwich"
Cons: "Staff unfriendly"
Pros: "I’ve been very disappointed with the lack of cleanliness of the aircraft and the disregard of the aircraft overall. It was quite old, fair enough, but there where some missing pieces here and there that didn’t make me feel safe. The flight overall was good, British Airways crew are always very competent and professional, which is the reason why I mainly fly with BA. But this is the first time I had some concerns on the lack of safety checks especially because I travelled with my 2 years old son."
Cons: "Please see answer above. The aircraft should have been maintained."
Pros: "Crew and pilot great."
Cons: "Toilet was dirty."
Cons: "The phone number to contact BA in Italy started with 02, didn’t work with a cell phone needs a country code. The check in staff were ok, but the disability support staff in both Rome and London were EXCELLENT and the cabin crew were great."
Pros: "We had mobility assistance.They were excellent"
Cons: "The flight attendants were awful. Even before the flight had taken off, I watched one hell at a passenger when he couldn’t find his seat"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing, not even water, was offered free"
Pros: "Pilot was informing us about the reason for slight delay. Can not comment on food or entertainment ."
Cons: "British Airways introduced boarding by groups Inspite of my plea for my husband who recently undergone heart surgery he had to stand and queu until our group number was allowed to enter the plane. We have been told very firmly by taciturn lady at Fumicino Rome that this are new rules nad they are to be obeyed! compassion is not forte in our experience of British Airways."
Cons: "My daughter and I were bumped off flight. We also had problems checking in. Luckily Alitalia were able to accommodate"
Pros: "The wheelchair services at both Rome and Heathrow were superb. The lady who checked us in in Rome was extremely helpful."
Cons: "Food in business class could be better. One toilett in business class was unusable. At leadt 1 in economy cladd was also unusable."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant enough"
Cons: "British airways is always delayed, I never make my connection, I had to be rescheduled on the way there and on the way home"
Pros: "That there was help from the beginning to the end of the flight."
Cons: "Left late. Was told we would still arrive on time. Sat waiting for a gate to open which took all most 45 minutes. We had 12 minutes to depart, go through security and RUN to another terminal and navigate a foreign AirPort and run onto a BA plane that we were told would not wait for the numerous passengers trying to reach the plane. And then sat for over 30 minutes on the plane while the "luggage" was being loaded. Then was told our luggage never made it to our plane. Given both flights were BA I was totally disappointed for this short-term anxiety that was unnecessary."
Pros: "Crew was very professional and friendly. Service was quite efficient."
Cons: "Business class was 3x3 with the middle seat locked up with the tray table. First time that I’d seen this... looked strange."
Pros: "Flight canceled because crew had to much work time after loading and leaving the terminal. Then they lost our luggage going to Rome"
Pros: "flight crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Appeared that there was some inconsistencies in what was allowed to be carried-on. When I checked in, my roller-bag suitcase carry-on was not allowed to be carried on and it made me scramble at the last minute to grab items I wanted for in-flight use. The odd thing was that the flight was less than half full and there was lots of storage space. Plus a young male was allowed to board with a very large duffel bag (larger than my roller), an over-sized skate board, and a personal backpack and a pillow."
Pros: "On time. Nice scenery. Cordial crew. All food costs extra. Completely full. Glad it was only 2 hrs."
Cons: "All food costs extra. Seats cost money (no thanks, I’ll stand). Every seat booked, so i suspect some didn’t make it."
Pros: "I recently had a difficult time returning to Italy and the part of the journey handled by BA was excellent. They were kind and helpful."
Cons: "I had to purchase a cup of coffee."
Pros: "Hillary Swank happened to be on our flight..."
Cons: "Like all of the flights we had with British Airways, it was delayed. Flight delays happen all of the time but the real issue was that there was very little information shared with us as to why, how long, etc. We ended up sitting on the tarmac for more than an hour without so much as an offer of water by the crew. When we did get into the air, it took the crew a full hour to reach all of the rows with refreshments, none of which (including water) were complimentary."
Cons: "It took FOREVER to get our boarding passes. We did wind up checking our bags, but there was no option to do self check and have boarding passes printed at a kiosk, so everyone had to go through the line and the line was incredibly slow. There were just as many lines for people who had checked in online and just needed to drop their bags - this made no sense to me! There should only have been one line for that and the rest should have been dedicated to getting the rest of the passengers checked in."
Pros: "Plane was good, Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Would only give us boarding passes to LHR, not to LAX so we had a short connection, a late plane and still had to stand in a customer service line in LHR to get boarding passes. Made the conncection but it was a long run through the airport."
Pros: "Food and service were great!"
Cons: "Babies crying, hate flying with Babies! Guy behind me kept pulling and kicking my seat, pain in the aaa!"
Cons: "I paid money when I requested seat assignment online. I’m not sure what I paid for as our seats were standard."
Cons: "it departed late and with the fare I paid not even free water was served."
Cons: "I find it hard to believe that BA requires passengers to purchase basic needs like water. That was a huge disappointment."
Pros: "The airline attendants were very nice and helpful. I had to stow my backpack in the overhead since I was sitting in a front seat with no underseat storage. The flight attendant was very helpful in finding a storage place for me near my seat since I was unable to find a place that wasn't towards the rear of the plane. I've always enjoyed flying with British Airways. Always first class service no matter where you sit."
Cons: "I have no complaints about my flight."
Pros: "Switch to Qatar Airlines"
Cons: "We were delayed getting out of Rome, making our connection a little stressful."
Pros: "Service levels were high and good humored as usual, cabin was clean and reasonably comfortable."
Cons: "Apart from still objecting to the principle of treating non-Business class customers like the budget airlines, the food selection on European flight leg was ok, but sales system is so slow and laborious that in future I'll probably buy in the departures terminal and carry on board."
Pros: "I slept during the flight, means it was ok"
Cons: "I did not like the delay....but it happens"
Pros: "The flight I booked through Kayak was cancelled and I was not told until I called three weeks later to check on my seat assignment."
Cons: "Crew was not helpful at the end of the flight when we had a very short turnaround time due to delay and my girlfriend had to run to catch the other flight and she has recently had hip surgery. The crew was asked 3 times for help and their response was "you will be fine". We were not fine also the security crew at Heathrow was incredibly slow and there were 3 standing around talking and one very slow very rude lady going through bags which caused us also to be delayed and have to run to catch connecting flight to SF just barely made it - totally unacceptable."
Pros: "Eventually getting there"
Cons: "Sitting in the plane for 2.5 hours before finally taking off and missing my connection. Also they ran out of food."
Pros: "Left late but arrived on time"
Cons: "Had to pay for water (unless you wanted bathroom water) and juice or coffee."
Cons: "One flight attendant had so much perfume on every time she stopped by it was drowning our sinuses."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic, food and drinks were of a very decent standard."
Cons: "Boarding was in a cramped corner so a bit confusing, no enetertainment at all on a (very) old plane."
Pros: "Comfortable flight. Loved the free movies!"
Cons: "We races to get to the plane from connecting flight that was late getting in. Then we sat on the plane 2+ hours duew to tire needing replaced, then the air was not working so it was terribly hot and stuffy, then the movie system was not working. Wish we could have gotten off plane during delay. Long flight to begin with, sitting for 2 extra hours was not fun. With all that being said, I am glad they took care of the issues and that our safety was first. Once we got in the air, a very good flight!"
Pros: "Hard to say after they lost my luggage, cramped space, no leg room because of electronics box under seat, then the person in front of me decided to recline all the way back on a 12 hour flight. So I lost my luggage, and had some smelly stranger practically laying on my lap for 12 hours. Talk about insult to injury!"
Cons: "They forced me to check my bag, even before I boarded the plane and said there wouldn't be any room. Then they lost my bag. Worst thing I ever did was listen to the lady at the ticketing booth! Also, the way they do boarding is a total joke. All they care about is their first class passengers. For the rest, it's a free for all! Terrible, even Southwest has more organization! Sputhwest might not have assigned seating, but they're much more organized and significantly cheaper. How do you lose someone's luggage British Airways?!?!?!!!"
Cons: "We were asked to check in our luggage as there was not sufficient space in the cabin which obviously delayed our plans of getting a train to other location from the airport after lading as we had to collect the bags etc"
Pros: "Usual BA - professional service"
Cons: "I cannot believe you have to pay for your drinks now. The only thing which made BA one of the last remaining "experience" airlines has now made it become like a normal train journey. I'd prefer to pay 10 pounds more in my ticket and still have the impression my drinks, soft or not, are offered."
Pros: "Better seats and space"
Cons: "New M&S menu, makes service too slow and the items are mediocre."
Pros: "Landed on time. Boarded via an air bridge (no bus)"
Cons: "BA have done away with food and replaced this with a packet of crisps or a biscuit and will soon be changing for food"
Cons: "I have both celiac and a mushroom allergy -- no meal option was proviided to accommodate both. Sure enough, my gluten-free meal contained mushrooms. (It's surprising to me that, since celiacs often have other food allergies/sensitivities, the meal contained a pretty common allergen.) Stuff happens sometimes, but it felt a bit as if the flight attendant felt inconvenienced by my inability to eat the meal. Also, usually disabled passengers are given the opportunity to pre-board -- the wheelchair didn't arrive until quite late, so I was one of the last people, if not the last, on the flight, something that makes getting settled a lot more difficult than when I've been allowed to pre-board. I realize that wheelchair attendants are employed by the airport, not the airline, but he gate agent seemed unconcerned about the fact that nobody had arrived to pick up wheelchair passengers despite the fact that everyone else was already boarding. Finally, the flight departed/arrived quite late, which meant that I had about 10 minutes to spend in the Heathrow Club World lounge before having to wait for a wheelcehair attendant to take me to my connecting flight."
Pros: "The flight was fine - nothing exceptional but nothing bad!"
Cons: "Our BA flight from Rome to Paris was operated by Vueling. Vueling staff in Rome lacked knowledge of whether or not our bags could be transferred properly to our BA connection and onto our home city. Our bags did not connect and arrived 2 days after we did. Vueling desks were extremely unorganized, staff were not helpful, and boarding the plane after 2 buses hauled the passengers far out onto the concourse was a nightmare. We love BA, but we will never again purchase a flight where Vueling is involved."
Pros: "Better in meal flight meal than I though."
Cons: "Kayak didn't let us know our first leg was cancelled."
