Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Better screens for in-flight movies. More legroom or upgrade options."
Pros: "The plane had more leg room and felt less confined because of higher ceilings."
Cons: "The 2 bathrooms in the rear are VERY narrow. I'm average size and barely fit. Also, the waiting area in terminal 3 at LAX is very crowded and noisy and the options for charging portable devices is minimal. I will definitely avoid Delta if I have to go through LAX."
Cons: "Very cramped for overseas flight Coffee is never hot, never served in timely fashion"
Pros: "Good service. And good features. Enough space in seats in first class."
Pros: "Olivia Sanchez and Yvette Diaz were absolutely. 100% phenomenal. They upgraded my friends and I to a flight tomorrow, and we can still meet with our group in time."

Cons: "missed flight bc of delay with first flight. jad to wait 5 hours at lax"
Pros: "Cabin crew was good."

Pros: "i liked the aircraft and the fact that you could watch movies on your phone!"
Cons: "you couldn't hear the staff when they started boarding the plane"
Pros: "Smooth, quick and comfortable flight."
Pros: "got to change my seat and have a spacious exit row"
Cons: "I have the worst opinion of the Delta company, when I was flying to Atlanta on October 20 they changed my flight at the last minute I had to leave until my job to take another flight. Just today when returning my suitcase did not arrive they sent it to another destination. I think the company gives very bad service."
Pros: "Great Food. Good entertainment. I recommend the aisle seat if you have to go top the bathroom frequently. :-) I felt that the flight attendants were concerned about our comfort on the flights."
Cons: "I would have liked more of a music and movie selection."
Pros: "Perfect flight"
Pros: "Good food and movies. Comfy seating with plenty of room."
Pros: "That I was able to sit next to my husband"
Cons: "Everything else."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and gave great service."

Cons: "Never made it on this flight and in the end my luggage was lost."
Pros: "Nothing more than expected."
Cons: "Food could be improved."
Pros: "Crew was very good and nice on the flight"
Cons: "Flight terminal was changed about 30 to 45 minutes before boarding Flight was delayed due to AC problem Configuration of the plane was terrible. Little leg room but the windows did not align with the seats so a window was shared with two rows making it challenging to open or close a window without disturbing the passenger in the other row with whom the window is being shared. No charging outlets in the terminal or on the plane. Plane had no food to offer for purchase. Expected better from Delta."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Well delta over sells their flights every time and have to buy people out of their seats. This would be fine if it didn't mean that your seats have to be changed last minute and without your knowledge. I choose a window on purpose because I am claustrophobic. I did not pay for upgrade because I was able to select a seat that was a window...had I known it could change I would have. Zero communication just surprise you have a. Ew seat."
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?"
Pros: "Very new plane arrived on time no problems"
Cons: "Nothing everything was great"
Pros: "First class crew was great! Smooth ride, arrived early"
Cons: "Lunch option on LAX-AUS wasn't that good (chicken salad or meatballs), also was pretty sparse on the meal itself compared to other airlines"
Cons: "Missed connection"
Pros: "Crew was attentive, kept us informed throughout, and were friendly. Landing was smooth."
Cons: "Bathroom ran out of tissues and toilet paper halfway through the flight. Alerted the crew, and they added tp. Bathrooms seem to have gotten even narrower, barely any room to move in there! Also, we had to sit on the tarmac after landing for 30 min due to gate traffic. A few minor inconveniences, but overall tolerable."
Pros: "The Delta crew on the flight was wonderful - but the crew at ATL really shined. A huge amount of people for connections arrived at the same time and needed to get through customs and the staff were very calm and efficient in directing everyone and making sure the line moved."
Pros: "2 seats by windows, rather than 3, and the roominess plus ease of using the media tv screen and options. the beverage options and food options were plentiful as well as good quality."
Pros: "The crew was very nice as usual. A bit too many announcements that ran a bit too long. Other than that great folks."
Cons: "No water on the plane so no coffee and no running water in the bathrooms. They did well trying to accommodate but between that and a calibration issue in the cockpit that had us running late it was not the best delta flight I've been on."
Pros: "Clean plane, good service. on time departure, early arrival."
Cons: "I did not like the way the plane was boarded- people could not get into their seats because others blocked the aisles - so chaotic. Passengers were not being rude to one another, it was simply that the process is poor. Could the zones instead reflect both location of seat and area of plane, so that those with window seats at the back board first, then middle seats, then aisle? That way if aisle seats fill first, seated people are not stepping back into the aisle to accommodate others needing to get a seat in that row, while everyone on the gang way must wait for the aisle to clear."
Cons: "New design of the the plane with side to side bathrooms at the back leaves much to be desired. Those were the smallest airplane bathrooms I've ever used!! I had trouble fitting and I'm not a large person!"
Pros: "What they offer is OK."
Cons: "No leg room, seats vastly too narrow"
Cons: "I'm Sky Priority and the gate agents were not enforcing zones. They called Diamond and everyone walked in. I went in and saw zone 3 in the line"
Pros: "The plane was new and comfortable, the flight attendants were friendly and wonderful and the meal was pretty good but the abundance of snacks and drinks made a 9-hour flight very tolerable. I'd definitely fly Delta to Italy again."
Pros: "The stewards were professional, courteous, efficient, helpful, excellent at keeping the cabin clean, kind, and just overall wonderful."
Cons: "The economy seating was very tight on this plane. I'm just 5'8", and it felt incredibly tight. I think I had 2" of leg room. I cannot imagine being much taller."
Pros: "Nice crew, good drinks."
Cons: "Would prefer a vegan sandwich option for the short flight."
Pros: "The boarding was smooth and efficient. We left and landed on time a very good flight."
Cons: "Boarded late, departed late, and they made my boyfriend check his standard sized carry on bag at the gate."
Cons: "Had to wait more than 30 min at SJC"
Cons: "I didn't like going downstairs to the bathroom. I'm sure there is a good reason why we did it. Also, the seats are too close together for a trip of that length of time."
Cons: "Food was just ok"
Pros: "Your staff is professional and extremely smart, well versed in many languages. Keep up the good work!"
Pros: "The sandwich and wine were nice...and prompt, too"
Cons: "Was told to check in at wrong desk by databoard. This caused delay..."
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: "The perfekt assistance we needed in Munich. We were asisted by an exellent young man."
Pros: "We made our transfer"
Cons: "Our airplane was assigned a remote parking space instead of main terminal but our bus came quickly to main terminal and we made our transfer and through customs in an hour"
Cons: "Very crowded, the lady behind us was coughing her lungs out the whole flight. Flight was smooth but arrived behind schedule. Actually landed on time but we didn't get to the terminal for almost 15 minutes. The Frankfurt airport is a nightmare, worst designed airport I have been through."
Pros: "Tea offered instead of coffee - nice touch!"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Food was tasteless"
Pros: "Because we left at 6:50am and I didn't sleep the night before in the airport, I the second I got on the plane I feel asleep and didn't wake up until we landed, so I couldn't tell you much about the experience."
Cons: "The boarding process was rather hectic and they didn't have enough seating for people waiting."
Pros: "Staff seemed super friendly and happy to help. Also got plenty of drinks!"
Pros: "Quick, efficient"
Cons: "Sandwiches not palatable."
Pros: "Quick flight, efficient boarding."

Cons: "arrived on time with no problems"
Pros: "Service and food were excellent. Plane was clean, on time, smooth ride."
Cons: "Need slightly more leg room in seats"

Pros: "Comfortable, price, staff, on time,food/drinks, entertainment..."
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: "The process of obtaining our boarding pass in Rome was slow because the first person that was handling seemed not to be familiar with the process. A second person took over and everything went smooth and fast."
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: "Clean and comfortable aircraft."
Pros: "Generally a smooth flight. My geographically knowledgeable friend pointing out towns, rivers, forests and places we visited in 2012 as we moved across Italy, the Swiss Alps and Germany. Delightful."
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: "Food and movies on board were good"
Cons: "Our flight was 3 hrs delayed so ended up missing our next flight. Also they said there would be someone outside the gate when we landed to help us figure out another flight if we were missing our connection and there was no one there. Had to go find a customer service desk. They did put us up in a hotel for the night but after 3 weeks abroad we were really looking forward to getting home. Also the landing was very rocky. I felt sea sick and a lady behind me was actually throwing up it was so rough."
Pros: "Great crew and service; food was good. On time departure and early arrival."
Pros: "From the friendly service, great entertainment and wine with dinner, yes, wine is served with dinner at no charge! They make my international travel easy and relaxing. I will always take Lufthansa when I can."
Pros: "Just about everything was great. Left on time and arrived early. Nice light breakfast snack that you don't see on many other airlines. ."
Pros: "Flight attendants were thoughtful and fun. There was what felt like endless food and drinks being deserved throughout the flight. The in flight entertainment had a ton of variety. Seats were spacious and the added pillow and blanket were a great touch."
Cons: "Everything was geeat"
Cons: "I booked my tickets on Lufthansa, but was assigned to the united flight. There was no in-flight entrainment. We were supposed to use our mobile device to access in-flight entertainment via the United app. There were serious buffering issues and only a minute or two of movie would play at once. Also, there was no in-flight charging facility. For a 10.5 hour flight where passengers are expected to use their own personal devices for entrainment, they should at least provide charging facilities. The seats were super uncomfortable. Minimum cushion and recline. Although I requested vegetarian meal while booking the flight (way ahead of my trip) I was told that they were out of any vegetarian options."
Pros: "The friendliness of Lufthansa's staff is second to none"
Pros: "Flight was on time, snacks were good, crew was friendly."

Pros: "Service, cleanliness, hot towels"
Cons: "Vegetarian option being pasta"
Pros: "plain was almost full and were no space for hand lagguage so we have to put it under seat in ftonr of us, but since there is less space in the end we put our legs on our begs...totaly unconfortable !!!"
Cons: "lower your prices, we do not to pay for your losses because of so much strike in 2015th year...for 200 euro we have to pay luggage 30 euro?! WTF?! i will next time rather fly with lowcast beacuse there is no difference except in price."
Pros: "Overall flying experience was good"
Cons: "It was a morning flight but check in counters were very less and as s result there was long queue. For a morning flight when the passengers get up almost at wee hours to report to airport , the check in should be faster so that they get some time before boarding for a cup of tea or coffee."
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: "The crew."
Cons: "The time between flights."
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Ran out of business class meal. Substituted a Econ class."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Security check at gate; No priority"
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat but it’s only a 1 hour flight so not a big deal."
Pros: "Smooth and faster than expected trip. I felt free to get up and walk around on this long flight. Food was good. I sat in seat with extra leg room for the first time and it was worth it"

Pros: "Light snack and complementary wine"
Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Pros: "The staff tried to help me when it was evident we would not arrive on time"

Pros: "The crew was efficient. Flight left on time. Food and wine served."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "I am so grateful to have been provided delicious and filling vegan meals on this long flight. Thank you for offering a dietary option that is compassionate toward animals and contributes less to climate change! Now if only the planes were powered by clean, renewable energy... Hopefully that will become a reality someday very soon! Oh, and also the crew on this flight was exceptionally kind and helpful. Thank you so much!"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the turbulence, which I suppose is unavoidable. More importantly, I felt quite guilty about the greenhouse gas emissions of my flight. I have decided to cut down on my air travel as much as possible as a way of reducing my carbon footprint."
Pros: "Travel on Crostian Airlines did not pappen. KLM flight to Munich was cancelled and I was rescheduled on Air Setbia to Belgrade, the Split."
Cons: "That it didn’t happen."
Pros: "Professional crew. Good boarding."
Cons: "No entertainment on board in business. Stale buns - staff unapologetic. Older 737 with uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Wifi on Board"
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: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Everting so good ex"
Pros: "Due to lightening bolt strike our pre-Y2K era plane got switched out with a newer plane with modern media delivery at the seats."
Cons: "This caused a two hour delay in boarding and another 30 minutes on the JFK T4 tarmac. Same crappy headphones so it wasn’t the"
Pros: "Very friendly staff"
Cons: "una valija se perdió. Eso desató el descontrol que tiene KLM para seguir el equipaje. No hay como hacer tracking. No hay un teléfono a donde hablar, la web está desactualizada y con información equivocada. Direccionan a usar canales de twitter y facebook que no responden. Primer experiencia en KLM y no pienso nunca más usar esta aerolínea. Llevar el equipaje o resolver un problema sobre valijas es de lo más básico de una aerolínea y no lo hacen."
Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant and attentive. Seats were comfortable for economy as well. We were allowed to check in extra baggage for free at check in which really helped since we would be catching a connecting flight in Amsterdam"
Pros: "Everything. Staff incredible."
Cons: "Why do the crew have to slam the overhead and catering compartments to get them to shut?"
Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."
Pros: "Flight attendants tried their best given what they had to work with."
Cons: "They can not retire these old Boeing 747's soon enough. Due to mechanical problems, our flight arrived at LAXfour and a half hours late and further problems with the cargo door caused an additional one hour delay of our take off."
Pros: "KLM fed a sandwich even though the flight was only 2 hours. The crew was pleasant. Getting through the Amsterdam airport to catch a connecting flight with only an hour to do so was no big deal. Airport staff was pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "Very good flight, excellent service and good food."
Pros: "Good flight, we got a nice snack despite it being a short flight, the staff was great."
Pros: "It's the best flight I could get for such a low price. But don't expect to to get the best and newest planes around but it's still overall a good experience."
Cons: "Quite bummed that the flight didn't have wifi / USB):"
Cons: "The crew on the Lagos Amsterdam route (in economy) are particularly unfriendly and brusque. This is my experience each time i fly this route in economy"
Pros: "We really liked the KLM people, from the check in crew to the flight attendants."
Cons: "Very slow service. I wanted to by several goods from duty free. But crew served only first 20 rows of aircraft."
Pros: "Almost missed flight due to line at customs and having to pick up suitcase and check in again, they did wait for me though"
Pros: "There was no flight! So it's one thing that you have to cancel the flight because of fog; but rebooking us the next day on a flight through New York that doesn't exist, was way below the standard of care I would expect from any airline. Apparently, the NY to LAX flight that KLM booked us on, was only one leg of the flight to Sydney Australia; and according to some airline agreement, only Australian nationals are permitted to take that flight! Running around at JFK from terminal four, to terminal seven, to terminal eight, back to terminal four, to get a flight out, was a bit much considering how tired we were – not to mention hungry, since KLM neglected to provide the kosher meals we had requested with plenty of time – BOTH going to and returning from Europe."
Cons: "I had booked a paid seat with extra legroom, but at check in the seat was given to another passenger"
Cons: "Keep up the same spirit"
Pros: "I have flown to hk with Cathay and American exclusively. I wanted to try Finnair because the price was very good for business. I now know why. The food is mediocre. The staff aren’t friendly or attentive. At $2700 it’s cheap compared to CX and AA but I know why now."
Cons: "Service, staff and food."
Pros: "Flight was good with no turbulence. Crew was professional and courteous."
Cons: "Problems with monitor, went down a couple of times. Would like a better movie selection. Food used to be better. Even the dessert was not what I used to get before. Felt like the legroom got tighter too."
Cons: "video was broken"
Pros: "Great service on biz class, comfortable seat, quiet airplane (A350)."
Cons: "I liked it all."
Pros: "Beautiful new modern aircraft & plenty of spare seats on the flight. Paid for Economy comfort & it was worth it."
Cons: "Did not like that you had to pay for drinks & snacks. For someone of Finnair’s standing, you would think they would include it."
Cons: "The seats were chargeable. I paid a higher price for extra leg room. However these seats were the same as other ones that were much cheaper. Why charging so much extra?! False advertising?! This is unbelievable."
Pros: "I flew in economy. 9+ hours from ORD to HEL. The seat was average size. We were provided with a pillow, blanket and headphones. I did not use the in-flight entertainment, which was on an LCD screen. It was warm, so i didn't use the blanket. I also brought a neck-pillow, which is vital on overnight flights. They served a full dinner shortly after takeoff: I had meat lasagna which wasn't that bad, along with corn, a roll w/ butter, two saltine crackers with decent cheese and a chocolate pudding. Upon waking, I ate the breakfast, which was scrambled eggs and two sausages and a roasted tomato, a roll with butter, fruit cup and orange juice, coffee on the side. All pretty good, it was nice to have a meal before deplaning in Helsinki and waiting to get through passport control. Attendants on this flight were quite friendly. Check-in was run very efficiently. No problems with luggage. All in all, a real bargain price, and I got more than I bargained for."
Cons: "As for the downside, I had no significant disappointments on the long leg of my flight on Finnair. I hope my return flights will be just as good."
Pros: "All is satisified."
Pros: "They were on time"
Cons: "Low level service, quarrel at the check in about size of the hand luggage (fits all standards, excepts self imposed Finnair rule <8 kg). Poor to no service."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "I made it home safe."
Cons: "Poor boarding, delay caused us to miss connecting flight, new flight plan did not have enough time to pass though customers, bag not delivered to final destination. In office now trying to locate."
Pros: "I'm so happy to be able to travel with my small dog in cabin. I've travelled from Miami to Helsinki and back with a dog at least 30 times in the last 16 years. The service has always been very good. I choose the airline always based on what's best for my dog."
Pros: "Nicest plane I've been on. Boeing for life."
Pros: "Boarding was easy"
Cons: "Drinks were for an additional charge"
Pros: "The option of having a direct flight between Helsinki and Miami. The plane was clean and the seats comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was 1 1/2 hrs late!!!! This seems to be a regular pattern from what I understand from others who have travelled the same itinerary. Not good if this becomes your reputation. The crew was not very attentive during good service. It was more of a routine / rush job rather than making sure that everybody was served and got what they needed ( had to ask for my dinner as my row was skipped and was never offered coffee before landing). The crew seemed rather young and inexperienced. The food was below average!!!! Especially the chicken patty before landing - seriously!!!!! Why not include a little bit of Finnish / Scandinavian cuisine to emphasize the Finnair brand!!! Entertainment was also below average. There needs to be more variety - especially for the TV selection, which had only 2 options!!! No music and no games?? Also, it would be nice to have access to a flight map. Too few accessible WCs"
Cons: "Hi I try to cancel my flight to tel aviv bat no bady Will to help me Bad castomer Service for kayak app I hope you help me to get my many back Malki"
Pros: "Good food, two hot meals."
Cons: "Unfortunately the flight was done by HiFly , not Finnair. Boarding took almost two hours, the whole flight crew behaved is if they were doing everybody a favor by being there. Entertainment options included like 6 movies and 2 tv shows, only 2 movies were more or less new, not much for a 10.30 hour flight. We really enjoyed our experience on the outbound flight with Finnair and were looking forward to this flight also, but Finnair didn't service this flight."
Pros: "Perhaps that we eventually got there and that the plane did not crash"
Pros: "The cabin was very clean and the flight was smooth dispite heavy crosswinds on approach."
Cons: "The boarding was awfully slow, and the flight departed nearly half an hour late. The cabin crew offered free water and coffee, once. Even then I had to ask the flight attendant, they did not ask me. No entertainment on the flight, magazines were rather pricy so I read a book and caught up with some sleep."
Cons: "Not enough leg room."
Pros: "Liked seat size and spacing on the Airbus - better than American 777"
Pros: "The accommodations made me feel like I was in first class!"
Cons: "The screaming child behind me ):"
Pros: "I was a bit surprised by cabin crew 's welcoming words that were my native language ,which ware very familiar and joyful . I didn't feel well at that time with a severe cold and I endured during the entire fly . I know it's kind of bad but I made it to my country safely. The food was Korean food and I really enjoyed and loved it so much .The Helsinki airport is great with smoking booth and warm ."
Cons: "Nothing but I wonder if they could change my seat to upper one despite my additional fare because I felt bad the day and they had cold pills like medicine."
Cons: "Touch screen TV harder to switch channels/choices. You either touch hard or harder on screen (mostly few times)."
Cons: "Problem with baggage"
Pros: "Airplane was pretty spacious and clean and it had all the amenities of a newer plane"
Cons: "Plane had to be switched, but the process was disorganized and frustrating. Had to miss my connection as a result"
Pros: "There was a flight attendant who was perfect for his career-absolutely the best ever on the Rome to Philadelphia flight-a tall, African American gentleman. So accommodating and friendly!"
Pros: "We ended up being on a BA flight which was fine. Ok service, check in from London much better than USA. In flight entertainment good."
Cons: "Nonchalant crew on the way back, I asked if they had any snacks half way into the flight as I didn't eat dinner, I went to the galley and the head of customer service heard my request, looked at me and just carried on reading his paper leaving a flight attendant to offer me a small bag of pretzels , which she had to search for. Very poor"
Pros: "The flight was so-so. Cramped seating with mediocre food."
Cons: "The problem I had was the multiple email updates from Kayak with the wrong departure time. Fortunately, I checked with American directly. Even after the flight departed I was getting emails that I still had four hours left. Doesn't make sense."
Pros: "It was cancelled"
Cons: "It was cancelled"
Pros: "Good airplane, big and clean. Very punctual ."
Cons: "Not food just a very small drink"
Pros: "Usually a 7 hours flight is a torture for me, but with their outstanding service I didn't notice how time flew by.The flight attendants were providing us with all necessary information about next connections."
Pros: "Best price from Dallas to Barcelona, and then Madrid to Dallas."
Pros: "Two hours late leaving Miami. Just made my CDG connection with 2 minutes to spare thanks to faster delivery of luggage at CDG"
Pros: "Movies Food Comfortable seating"
Cons: "Going through security"
Pros: "The meal for dinner was nice with wine, good old fashioned meal service. The plane was clean. Blankets and pillows provided. Staff seemed efficient. The flight was operated by Iberian so it was all in Spanish. Okay for us as we speak Spanish."
Cons: "The seats had so little padding. We are not very tall and the seats are just too close together. The poor fellow behind me could not make a move without bashing the back of my seat. Not his fault. If you are over 5'5" tall you are in trouble. It is too bad that flying has become so uncomfortable in coach."
Pros: "Once we got on the flight it was all good!"
Cons: "We had the worst experience getting to our flight this airport is so badly managed it is laughable."
Cons: "Flight was moved to LA. I paid more for this ticket so I did not have to fly out of LA. We were driven in uncomfortable shuttle vans. Check in and security were caiotic. Once I landed I found out no information was available to my sister who was picking me up!"
Pros: "I was not well and at the check in the lady was kind to change my seat ..."
Cons: "I order a special meal ....no meal for me on the plan ."
Pros: "it was fine"
Pros: "Crew politeness"
Cons: "Food is only average and not enough good movies to watch"
Pros: "Great crew-service was prompt"
Cons: "Food was served an hour after we took off and we got a snack 7 hours later!! You'd think that on a 9 hour flight, there would be two full meals. Also, entertainment system was tiny (4" screen) and colors were washed out with brightness/contrast so bad, you couldn't see anything at all. Seats were cramped-I took an Emirates flight from London to Bangalore-what a world of difference!!!! Never flying BA again, that's for sure."
Pros: "We were booked in business class for no additional charge."
Cons: "The movies shown were black and white old films."
Pros: "On time service, very simple and fast boarding, nice crew, nobody complicated with luggage"
Cons: "Cost for additional luggage was high, some food can be served for so long distance flight."
Pros: "About the only positive was that the plane left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "Checking luggage was a nightmare. I stood well over an hour in line. We barely made the flight, and afterwards our luggage was lost, and it still has not been found. The wheelchair that I had ordered for my travelling companion was not there, either at Manchester or Philadelphia. The seats that I had reserved were given away to someone else. Whilst the plane flight itself was okay, the airport experiences on either end were miserable."
Pros: "I got me where i needed to go. The food was okay."
Cons: "Lost luggage, poor seats, poor entertainment."
Pros: "I was running late getting through check-in because there was an abandoned backpack that caused a huge mob scene and delay. The American Airlines/(Finnair) check-in staff were WONDERFUL and made it all OK, pulling us out of the mob to get us through check-in. Then I went through security, which the check-in staff had tried to expedite, and got stopped for a random inspection. Then, after boarding passes were scanned, I was again stopped for a random search that took apart every zippered corner of my purse and my carry-on bag. But again, everyone was lovely to deal with. By the time I got on the plane I was grateful for having caught the flight, and for the kindness of the Paris staff, and marveling at what an obstacle course it had been. And I had enough leg room."
Cons: "1. The sound on my in-flight screen did not transmit the movie sounds, so I read a book all the way back. 2. The red wine was great to have. The food was like school cafeteria food, so I ate what I had brought with me. 3. The seats on airplanes never fit my body right. I sit very straight and upright, and I'm fairly tall. The airplane seats keep forcing my head forward and my back into a hunch."
Cons: "Outdated entertainment system. Furthermore, little selection of movies to see--for instance, the "international" movie selection included only two episodes of Foyles War and nothing else. Is this a joke?"
Cons: "Needs WiFi"
Pros: "Food was unusually good for airplane food"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Very comfy business class. Had a very good sleep."
Cons: "When queuing for boarding, some other classes queued on the the same line which made the queue very long. However there was no staff checking."
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: "Staff very pleasant"
Cons: "Old 747 poor video poor seats old toilets full of dust these plans need to be retired"
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"
Cons: "Ran out of food. Credit card machine didn't work,Crew can't take cash. Lots of shrugs and 'not our fault'. Better service from the low cost carriers. Expected better from ba."
Cons: "They even charge for water, just like Easy Jet and the low price airlines. BA doesn’t accept US credit cards online, nor do they accept cash. The simple drink service takes forever. I feel sorry for the flight attendants who have to fill out paper credit card forms if you present an American credit card. It’s like we are back in the 1970s. Ridiculous. It’s a $45/bag charge to check your bag. That’s almost double the standard $25 for American carriers. May try to avoid BA in the future."
Pros: "That there was help from the beginning to the end of the flight."
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: "Good entertainment."
Pros: "Thanks for many up to date movie choices to watch. Crew worked hard to keep the toddlers in front of me happy. (and they were really good with them!)"
Cons: "Dislike posting of gate assignments in Edinburgh and London so late. Means I have to hightail it across the terminals, every time. Dislike the gate change posting late. Had to hear about it from a passenger, no announcement was made. My chicken and potatoes lunch had potatoes as the side dish. Looked like the caterer had leftover potatoes to use! No real vegetables. 2 bites of spinach. Red wine was offered they had no white wine. No choice of sodas..."
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: "Best flight I’ve ever been on. International is always better but it was more like flying in the days of old when you weren’t just a body in a seat. Thanks BA"
Pros: "The on time arrival"
Cons: "That even non alcoholic drinks costs The gate agent provided misleading information"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and especially pleasant."
Cons: "The crew was very attentive and especially pleasant."
Cons: "A 2.5 pound coffee!! The only free drink was Airplane tank water !!"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, excellent reading material, easy boarding & deplaning, option to purchase tasty & healthy snacks."
Cons: "No complimentary beverages!! I was offered a plastic glass of tap water. Paying for alcoholic beverages appropriate, but providing basic beverage service seems an act of graciousness for choosing to fly this airline."
Pros: "boarding was fine and the crew was nice."
Cons: "the leg room was terrible and charging for drinks was a first."
Pros: "Flight was on time and pretty smooth"
Pros: "they boarded from middle of the plane which worked out very well"
Cons: "it was a 3 hr flight and all the food and drink you had to buy i would of thought they would of gave u something to snack on we sat at terminal for about a hr because they had to load a piece of equipment a certian way for it to b safe to fly (pilots explaintion) poor planing"
Cons: "They didn't have complimentary water on a 3-hour flight from Rome to London so I bought a small water for £1.80. Compared to KLM, which served organic and free range food, even on a much shorter flight, British Airways doesn't hold up."
Pros: "I slept during the flight, means it was ok"
Cons: "I did not like the delay....but it happens"
Cons: "No bags included even though I had a connecting flight on the same airline."
Cons: "Charging for coffee and tea? Tacky."
Cons: "The only flight we have ever been on of two hours or more where there was no complimentary snack or beverage service---not even coffee or water!"
Cons: "I was surprised that I had to put some "crisps" on my credit card (and a bottle of water, despite being severely dehydrated for other reasons) - they can't throw a bag of peanuts our way anymore? Help a brotha out!"
Pros: "I landed in San Diego"
Cons: "The seat was so small if I dropped something there was no way I could pick it up off the floor. I had to hold my arms in front of me because with an adult beside me there was no way both our arms could rest at the same time. I think if seating in coach gets any smaller you'll have to give disclaimers that only children should consider coach seats as suitable."
Pros: "The crew on the flight was friendly, and the snacks were okay."
Cons: "The flight did not take off when it was supposed to, so I missed my bus at Heathrow airport and had to sleep in the airport. The staff at Heathrow was not helpful, telling me to figure something out and then email the company for money because they may pay me back, but also maybe not. Even before the flight, I had to wait in a baggage check line in Rome for 2 hours while ever British airways employee attempted to address an issue with a single tour group check in. They gave us no information and just had us stand there waiting, refusing to let the line move, implying we are less important than the tour group. It was a miserable traveling experience."
Pros: "Red eyes can be daunting , but the comfort of the seating, blankets, entertainment and food let my adult children and I know vacation had begun"
Pros: "Movies offered were plenty and recent releases."
Cons: "Boarding inefficient and a joke again. Put on a bus to be taken out to plane, crammed in there like sardines, no AC. Had to wait inside bus around 20 minutes prior to boarding due to air traffic issues. Not pleasant to board a 10 hour flight already hot and sweating. No apologies given by British Airways. Food was awful. Served fish on salad-not warned prior to serving. Stunk up cabin. Seats extremely hard again. On this flight they tried to freeze everyone to death. Rude, new male crew member in economy class. Date on that salad, by the way, showed that it was expiring the next day. I will NEVER fly Bristish Airways again."
Pros: "but few are excellent. This one came close. The ticket agent for American Airlines at FCO/Roma was excellent. Altho this flight was 'billed' as a British Airways flight, it was operated by American. A little confusing when one thinks they are ticketing on a specific carrier only to be 'baited and switched' to another. That said, the equipment was in great condition, the video worked during the flight, the movie choices were very current. The food was airplane food. What more can one say."
Pros: "Service was good and the foodcwasnt that bad"
Cons: "Cheeky of Kayak to ask me how my flight to Rome was when I am still in Rome after getting bumped off my flight yesterday. The customer service and rebooking were efficient but I was given no choice or explanation other than "you have been rebooked for tomorrow's flight." I cal already see that thia flight is scheduled to be delayed 30 minutes."
Pros: "Crew was gracious and helpful"
Cons: "The crew moved me to another seat on the return flight which allowed me entertainment but I hadThe entertainment console at my seat location on both flights to and from London did not work. That's 10 hours! to move away from my companions."
Cons: "From my initial booking, it was impossible to get an assigned seat, even if I was willing to pay for it. Nobody at BA seemed capable of fixing the issue with customer service sending me to the ticket counter at my home airport who then sent me to customer service at Heathrow who said don't worry, they'll fix it at my next check-in. Needless to say, they didn't and getting two seats together for a 10 hour trip was only possible due to a visiting gate agent who held us back until there were no-shows and available adjacent seats. Handled very poorly from start to finish, it left me with a bad impression of BA and I'll have to be desperate to use them again if there are other alternatives."
Cons: "Too short time between flights. Luggage didn't arrive in Palermo"
Pros: "See below"
Cons: "US Storm response exposed problems. Italian operation only open for minimal hours, British web site would not accept US phone number For contact ( despite provision to do so). US 24 x 7 800#. Responsive and helpful after several frustrating hours attempting to deal with cancilation/rebooking issues in Italy and UK"
Cons: "Did not receive my bags. Still waiting. Carrier to Palermo was Vuelng. Have. Feeling there is NO coridinated effort between airlines to transfer baggage in Rome. We had 5 hour layover in Rome. No excuse for luggage to be missing!,,,"
Pros: "Service. The crew was hardworking and very pleasant"
Cons: "Bathroom cleanliness"
Pros: "The flight was smooth good I would like to fly again with you every thing was perfect .service ,respect any help or concerns we're solved I love it"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "a little cramped"
Pros: "The flight took off late due to Heathrow traffic, but made the time up in flight and we landed on time. Entertainment service was good. Food was good and interesting."
Cons: "Bathrooms were dirty within the first hour of the flight and by 5 hours into the flight, totally unusable from a cleanliness point. No disabled assistance from the flight crew. No pre-boarding of disabled passengers. Minimal beverage service during flight which left us dehydrated when we landed. Next time we will bring our own water. Steerage seating was uncomfortable and close and made us feel like second class citizens. Our new bags arrived looking beat up."
Pros: "Service, respect, accomodations."
Pros: "Plenty of food and entertainment"
Pros: "Crew and pilot were excellent, especially pilot. He kept us all informed which was very nice. I was bored out of my mind wish there was more entertainment."
Cons: "Fog over London delayed our flight from Rome. Instead of dealing with this proactively, BA made us sit in the plane on the tarmac for three hours. When we finally arrived in Rome, instead of automatically rebooking us, they directed everyone to a queue. That queue, managed on a first in, first out basis, took FOUR HOURS, during which we missed more flights that would have gotten us home. If, instead, the queue had been managed by departing flights, more people would have gotten to their destinations in a timely fashion. We eventually we booked on a flight to NY and got a rental car. We were offered no compensation for this ordeal."
Pros: "We received frequent updates on the many mechanical delays from the pilot. I also appreciated the blankets and entertainment, on-demand movies."
Cons: "Being delayed on all legs of an international flight, coming and going. Also, the economy seats had as much room as domestic seats (not much). Boarding was disorganized."
Cons: "Hard to rate since we missed it due to their failure to hold the gate open for another two minutes. That cost us six hours on a hellishly rough flight to Houston where it was flooding."
