Cons: "We couldn't lower the seats backwards. It was horror for eight hours. And one little tv didn't work but they gave my wife a diferent, better seat because of that.

Cons: "same remark : Before our trip we called Kayak service desk with the request to reserve our seats. The answer obtained was that we should do it online. When we went online there were almost no more seats available so we decided to go to the check in counter in the airport. Although we were more than 3 hours in advance in the airport there were almost no seats available. We were very disappointed about this service, we never experienced this with any other airline companies..."
Pros: "The food was good. The legroom was enjoyable."
Cons: "I checked two bags and had them marked 'fragile', as I had valuables in there that I packed securely. When I retrieved the bags on the carousel, the fragile sticker was mangled, and both items from both bags were broken. Pieces of art I can not replace. Also, it took over 30 minutes upon multiple requests for the attendant to acknowledge my need for assistance."

Cons: "The entertainment did not include any music (classical or otherwise)."
Pros: "Business class was wonderful liked pjs, food, seating. Etc"

Pros: "Over all it was a good experience"
Cons: "IEvery thing was fine."
Pros: "Plane was perfect"
Cons: "Transit was just tedious very long line , had to wait for along time. The crew have very strong accent which makes difficult to understand them, but they are very nice and helpful"
Cons: "Boarding this flight consisted of minimal organization on the crews behalf, the Gate's security machines were off, people scattered everywhere with not enough seats to fit everyone. When entering the gate (with security machines turned off keeping in mind everyone has already passed general airport security and is only trying to enter the gate. Staff would direct passengers towards an attempt at creating a boarding queue. Once passing the gate doors and walking towards the queue directed by staff, it seemed to be a normal occurance to have another staff memeber shout at you and redirect you another way. Getting scolded by gate employees and requested to remove all electronics turn them on and being requested to remove most clothing items at the gate while everyone is watching with security machines off while only selecting a few passengers seems to be a regular occurnace in Doha & with Qatar Airways. People standing all around, no queues were initiated by staff, instead staff would push through passengers to get to the front instead of propretly annoucing the boarding through an intercom. No matter how loud staff was screaming their sounds were drowned out by the passengers which turned boarding a full translatlantic flight into a chaotic scene. Once on the flight I noticed the headphones provided were broken, I politely requested a new pair...from 3 different employees...which took over 20 mins to replaced. Qatar Airways prides itself on quality unfortunately as an economy passenger I have yet to experience any of that other than when it comes to good on flight entertainment."
Pros: "Over all the flight was great."
Cons: "However I feel the need to share that the lid of one of the lights fell off and hit my girlfriend on her nose while she was asleep hurting her instantly. I understand that it was an accident, but nobody takes responsibility for it."
Cons: "The seat didn't have any inflight entertainment"
Pros: "Food was great, seats were comfortable, in flight entertainment was awesome, flight crew was friendly"
Cons: "baggage process could have been better, i was made to remove stuff just because was 1-2 lbs overweight in my baggage. Never had this issue with other airlines (especially when its only matter of 1-2 lbs.)"
Cons: "There was nothing to like. Considering my travel experience with Qatar & middle eastern airlines they've gone worst. The aircrafts need to be upgraded especially on long flights. Food was horrible and so was the entertainment. Would not recommend or fly Qatar again."
Pros: "The food you serve is good! We also appreciated the little gray packs of toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, etc. that you shared. The staff is very professional, and we enjoyed our flight,. We enjoyed the "quiet room" in the airport."
Cons: "I had a little trouble with the dvd monitor."
Pros: "flat bed business class seats"
Cons: "flight was delayed by more than four hours. as per the ground staff due to technical hitch but as per the pilot due to run way maintenance in COK. but there were other flights from Emirate, Jet, Ethihad all flying in and out without any issues, so doubt why only runway maintenance for QR.."
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The screen of my seat and my mom ( sitting next to me) and the lady near the window stopped working after launching and we had to stair in the dark for eleven hours the flight attendant tried but couldn't fix it. The seat itself was broken and I had to put the bottom Cushing back every time I stand up.the cue to the rest room ( one off them has a broken lock so you can't lock it ) was very long and I had to wait for 25 minutes tell I got in ( the first time I waited too long standing in an air plane )"
Pros: "a wonderful experience to travel with Qatar airways, recommended for others as well."
Pros: "As always, Qatar Airways has new planes, comfortable seats, clean atmosphere, and pretty good leg spaces. They fly on time and land on time."
Cons: "1. Food - It was not that great, especially if you are allergic to cold. It applies to asthmatic patients like me. You have very limited choices. The only hot item in my whole tray was "chicken mixed rice". Everything else from yoghurt to fruits went waste. Can we have HOT FOODS for people like me? 2. Flight Attendants - It seemed that the flight attendants were not so experienced at handling customers. Plus, several of them had poor English. That would have been okay if they had patience to listen to me slowly. But, they seemed to be in hurry and not wait enough to understand my request properly. I was asking HOT WATER and they were repeatedly handing me COLD WATER. Plus, they could see me breathing heavily and feeling great discomfort. Nobody asked me 'ARE YOU OKAY?". It seemed, they didn't care for customers like me. I found a serious lack of CUSTOMER RESPONSIVENESS, forget PRO-ACTIVENESS among several flight attendants. Finally, I found an example of SNOBBERY in the plane. A flight attendant was asking a couple sitting next to me to fill up the FEEDBACK FORM. They looked like from Middle East but were British citizens. They didn't talk to me even though I volunteered at frist to introduce myself. The lady was especially rude to me. They were dressed like high class folks. That's it. They neither represented the hundreds of passengers, especially Indians, in the Economy Cabin, nor were they friendly to fellow passengers. It left me with a feeling that Qatar Airways attendants were judging a book by cover and asking the wrong persons to fill the form who didn't really represent their majority customers for that cabin."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!!!!!"
Cons: "The fact that our flight was cancelled without being notified. I will never make flight arrangements with them again!!!!!"
Pros: "It was my first time traveling on business class and I had an amazing experience, friendly and helpful crew, they always made sure that I was doing fine and if I needed anything or any help. Healthy options on they food menu and delicious food and beverages. I am looking forward to traveling with Qatar airways again in the future."
Cons: "Would prefer more options on they entertainment menu."
Pros: "The airport in Doha is beautiful with great amenities and shopping. The quiet rooms are especially nice for a long layover."
Cons: "The ticket was cheap because of very long layovers"
Cons: "The flight heading back from Scotland was delayed due to mechanical issues and we missed connecting flights. Although that being said, they did provide vouches until we knew the status of our plane."
Pros: "Lots of disruptive kids, one of the ethnically chinese (sorry didn't catch her name) was very attentive and supportive of parents trying to keep their kids happy on a twelve hour flight."
Cons: "Long flight, infrequent water distribution, half the staff just chatting in the back. Filthy bathrooms not cleaned in flight."
Pros: "Easy flight. Great food. Friendly crew."

Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating, oldish plane, depressing colour combinations in the plane. Plane lavatory was dirty"
Pros: "The food is ok as is the entertainment on board."
Cons: "The crew could be nicer and more responsive"
Cons: "Boarding crew were rude and unhelpful. They didn't check IDs which became evident when a passenger complained his passport was missing and the plane had to return to the gate so he could go back into the airport to find his passport. Had it been checked before getting on the plane we could have spared everyone the hour delay. really this was is the worst service ever. Avoid."
Cons: "Istanbul Airport: Overcrowding at Arrival / Transit Terminal Way finding-poor signage for transit passengers"
Pros: "The service was excellent and the staff was so professional and nice"
Cons: "Staff was less than friendly and seats were not very comfortable in coach."

Cons: "Departure is 4 hours late. Missed connecting flight at Istanbul. Asked us to pay for Visa to stay in hotel. Did not have money. Also forgot to take Credit card from USA. As per the rule Airlines has to pay for Visa. They never paid. Asked us to pay. Totally harassment. Never book Turkish Airlines in my remaining whole life. Also will this incident to all my friends after going back to USA. Very very bad experience. Sat down 24 hours at Airport without food and sleep. Mostly will file a case against Airlines."
Pros: "Staff was extremely helpful and responsive. I like that plane is clean, and many plus, very good entertainment. I love that it is non-stop from SFO to Istanbul. Food was superb!"
Cons: "As usual check in and boarding is horrible with Turkish Airlines. I have used Lufthansa, British Airways, Air France, et had not trouble with them. Why is it so hard to improve this in Turkish Airlines. No charger for computer even during 13 hours flight?"
Pros: "Worst airline ever"
Cons: "Worst airline ever."
Pros: "Had REAL silverware and great food. Also great customer service via the flight attendents. THANK YOU!"
Pros: "The crew"

Cons: "My flight dates were changed by the airline which made me change many of my plans. My son's seat was broken and Tv didn't work (13 hour flight). Overall uncomfortable seats with very minimum seat recline option. Poor food. Staff was little "cold" and not attentive."
Cons: "Several TVs were not working. While some were repaired the TV for my viewing did not work. Though it was set right it failed raw weal times."
Pros: "The price can't be beat for a quality, national carrier. The next highest price for my series of flights was $600 more and would have taken twice as long. Good food, good alcoholic beverages, great movies, and a nice crew too."
Cons: "Turkish Airlines was delayed over an hour. It seems like slight delays do happen with this airline; however, you do get what you pay for and I can't really complain much over a one hour delay given the ticket price."
Pros: "Movie selection and food was good"
Cons: "The flight departed late and we had to run like psychos to our connecting gate to Athens... We barely made it."
Cons: "Very good experience on a nonstop from San Francisco to Istanbul & on to Thessaloniki. Very friendly professional staff. Good food. Charge outlets at the seats. Big choice of free movies. Istanbul airport is very busy. We had delays arriving and leaving for the connection."

Pros: "Very kind and helpful crew members Lots of stuff provided: drinks, food, kits etc"
Cons: "No leg space for tall people, alas"
Pros: "Staff are very friendly and deliver very good service. Refilling of water could be better. Seat was very comfortable and it comfortable for sleeping when it is flat. The seat cover improves sleeping quality. Dinner was well prepared and tasty. Skip the fried eggs for breakfast - it is great that they offer them, but they don't come out well."
Pros: "The seats were roomy (!!), the foot rest was really nice, the entertainment was impressive. The whole experience was great. They gave us slippers and socks and a pouch with eye cover, ear plugs etc. really top notch."
Cons: "The food wasn't as good as I expected but still better than most airlines. I don't have high expectations for food on planes, I had just heard great things about Turkish airlines food so thought maybe this would be great."
Pros: "Great food and movie selection"
Pros: "The food and entertainment system was excellent. The headphones were painful after a movie. But you can link personal headphones into the adapter which is providex."

Pros: "Modern 777 with seatback entertainment system and usb charging ports. Massive selection of entertainment. In-flight meals were excellent, U.S. airlines should emulate."
Cons: "Cabin temp was a bit high, my only complaint."
Pros: "Excellent trip! Great pilots, good service, and a complementary hotel room for an over night layover ( must have turkish visa). I would agree with the statement that they are one of the best airlines in Europe."
Cons: "No ability to upgrade seat at airport. I am not sure if upgrading is even possible. There were plenty of open comfort and business class seats that could have made additional money for the airline."
Pros: "The seat was good"
Cons: "The crew was not at all good, I had to call them so many times for one thing, not at all managed well"
Cons: "Staff not fluent & clear in English"
Pros: "Sitting in a metal tube flying at 40,000 feet with 300 other personalities has its challenges. Turkish Airlines' staff managed this with excellent care. The smallest things begin to matter; the comfort of the aircraft, quality of food and drinks, the frequency and availability of service, and above all conveying the sense of safety. Every member of this company, from the staff at the counter to the flight attendants, to the pilot seem to really embrace customer service."
Pros: "Nora from San Francisco Airport"
Cons: "Everything. Mean skinny guy from San Francisco TK counter, unprofessional handling of cancellation, accomodation to a hotel and Re-booking. We had no hotel, no food provided, no confirmed seats. I will never fly Turkish Airlines again."
Pros: "We got put up in a hotel near the airport, but after waiting for 4 hours at the gate, then 4 hours to get our bags again and find new flights. The crew were still kind, though clearly stressed."
Cons: "The crew had no idea how to handle all the displaced people on our flights. We were standing in line and double checking that we were being taken care of until 2:30 AM for a flight that was supposed to have left at 6 PM."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, the plane is modern and clean, equipped with usb charging ports, personal the interactive screen had many entertainment options, comfortable leg room, overhead storage bins were very spacious and crew members were polite."

Pros: "Boarding was easy"
Cons: "Expensive flight"
Cons: "From chennai to Abu dhabi was very uncomfortable Abu Dhabi to London was very comfortable"
Pros: "Check-in was easy and smooth."
Cons: "Agents at check-in desk took longer time to process passengers, even though some desks had two people helping. The web check-in line moved slower than the line with passengers who had not done online check-in. When I booked my flight via kayak, I was not given an option to select seats (this was new) . I was able to indicate my seat preference but there was no followup. When I checked in online 24 hours before my flight, the only option for seats was in the middle, which I did not want, although I I knew the flight would not be full. I was able to change seats when I checked in with the agent in the airport ."
Pros: "Planes were good with good leg room"
Cons: "For Asian Veg Meal, they served Paneer for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The spacing between meals was quite large. Entertainment options for adults and kids were quite limited."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and professional. Service was excellent and entertainment was varied with movies, shows and games with accompanying head phones."
Cons: "The foot rest in business class didn’t work, but the seat still reclined and was comfortable."
Pros: "Breakfast was slightly better than dinner choice"
Cons: "Window seat is quite cramped and I am not sure why I had to pay to choose a seat before this flight but not for my previous flight to Singapore which resulted in me getting one of the last seats available which was a pretty cramped window seat. Also too many repetitive announcements"
Pros: "Shoud be treated good meal in flight."
Pros: "The flight attendants."
Cons: "There was a medical emergency on board, so bathrooms did not get the necessary attention. Had to ask for toilet paper for two different bathrooms. Transferring to this flight as a NIGHTMARE. The boarding gate was a long way from the arrival gate. Went through an endless maze. Went through two security check points. At both check points I was sent for pat down. At the first there were five other women who were waiting for pat down. All white women. Discrimination???? At the second security, I had not even passed through the detector and the officer was waving me to get a pat down. At that point I started laughing. Next automated preclearance for immigration, then had to wait in line to talk to immigration officer. It is a miracle that I made it to the flight on time. Passport and boarding pass checked minimum of 6 times in this process. On arrival in Los Angeles, there was a bus ride to the terminal for luggage pick up. My husband was at the terminal I normally come to, I had no way to contact him (Indian sim), no change for pay phone. A fellow passenger was merciful and let me use her phone send husband messages and eventually we met up. I would not use Eithad for India to USA for this reason only. The security and immigration preclearance sucks."
Pros: "Staff was efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Just did not care for the meal that had spicy taste and no meat. Did like the chicken and mashed potatoes and green beans."

Cons: "Long story, short, they stuck us with an astonishing $350 in baggage fees, $175 each way, for having ONE checkin bag, weigh approximately 35 pounds, for a one hour flight. Sheer thievery."
Cons: "they asked me to check-in my carry on (which i am always able to take with me, and which i was able to take with me on the first leg of even this journey). it came as a surprise and i was in a flux, Thank God I had my passport in my pocket or it would have turned into a nightmare (I keep my stuff e.g. jacket, wallet, etc in my carry on)"
Cons: "There was no organization for boarding!! My chicken was like a piece of tire with no flavor!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for around an hour, without any prior notice."
Cons: "At most times crew on the aircraft were busy talking amongst themselves than helping out passengers on the flight."
Pros: "I really hate it bad food and foof poisoned snd blood vomited"
Pros: "That they changed my seat to emergency row seat free of charge"
Cons: "Staff are rude ..they wake u up roughly to offer u food.. that was crazy .. too many announcements .. they stop the entertainment system 45 min prior to landing"
Pros: "Travelled last minute since my mom passed away. Etihad upgraded us to Bussiness class for asking! It was a very comfortable journey in hard times."
Pros: "Comfortable seats with head rests and neck pillows Good food choice and no wasteage with plastic cutlery or portion sizes"
Pros: "The arrival time of the flight"
Cons: "Kids were crying most of the trip and the seats were so we couldnt sleep and when the food came they give you options hoping that you will choose what they got on their mind and they end up giving everyone the same type of food."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "Food could be improved upon and entertainment system should be available the whole flight"
Cons: "every thing else"
Pros: "Service is excellent But movie collection is very small Usually 5 regional Indian movies should be there. But only 1 or 2 regional movies r there No spicy snacks There are only bland snacks"
Pros: "Meal was good"
Cons: "Was charged USD 350 for one overweight bag. Asked Etihad beforehand if I could use a 72 transit visa to enter china on my current itenary. They said it was fine. I was stopped at the gatein Seoul by Asians who refused to board me on the plane because my itenary was incorrect. Will never fly either of these airlines again, and am currently seeking repayment for my unintended 4 day stay in Seoul"
Pros: "Flight attendant manager is particularly friendly courteous and professional. I felt my obligation to mention that to the airline company."
Cons: "Seat is not very comfortable. One of the passengers kept window shutter open throughout the flight. Wish they insisted to close so passengers can sleep. A baby was crying for a long time but what can you do?"
Cons: "We did not get our bags (total of 6 bags) - It was extremely difficult with an infant and a toddler to manage without clothes and meds. Staff was extremely arrogant during the flight, not helpful at all. Boarding process was a huge disaster - no planning, no zone boarding and unnesessary panic. Lastly food, worst frozen food. The portions were too small and very limited service. We won't use ETIHAD again."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They need better food"
Cons: "Food-- only once tea was. served during 15 he flight. A one rupee worth salt biscuits and two rupees worth popcorn was served..ridiculous. The quantity is very less. No fruits or yogurt at all. And only half cup water at a time. Ridiculous"
Cons: "The ground crew in SFO. Not friendly. Need lessons on customer service."
Pros: "Great cabin crew."
Cons: "Severely banged piece of large luggage to the point the handle doesn't even close. Noisy children, and such a filled flight that staff was having a hard time attending to needs of all passengers. Food areas were smelly as were toilets towards end of flight."
Pros: "Good selection"
Cons: "* Server was down for first half of the flight * Recommend turning on entertainment system as soon as cabin is boarded"
Pros: "In general your services are greatly appreciated"
Pros: "There was one crew member who was sympathetic to our plight, we appreciated her candor and whatever help she was able to give on this long flight."
Cons: "We were forced to sit on foul smelling seats for the 15 hour flight. The only option given to us was to deplane with barely 2 minutes of time to decide as the aircraft doors were being shut. Check-in took more than an hour and 15 minutes with a slow computer system."
Pros: "Nothing it was just average."
Cons: "My flight was from SFO to Abu dabi to ktm, then they changed it to sfo-chicago- Abu dabi- ktm. Made my flight longer and had to fly at 5am. instead of 9.30am. I have 2 little kids and it was hard. My first leg was on American Airlines where all my luggage was checked in plus had two carry on luggage, which were all good till Chicago. In Chicago Etihad counter, they refused to clear my carry on saying it was too large and wanted me to pay $300 each. I had to empty one carry on into my backpack and was forced to pay $300 for the other. They should have refused in SFO instead of after my first leg of travel. It's a set up. I will not fly Etihad again period."
Cons: "5 hours of delay , change in gate ."
Cons: "The boarding and check in crew are terrible. They don't inform or check luggage policies during check-in and force you just before boarding to pay extra money for unknowing people. This was completely frustrating and terrible experience. If only the crew were knowledgeable and friendly. Customer service is really bad."
Pros: "Service food n flight intirier"
Pros: "Nothing to like .... Taking money from customers"
Cons: "Very bad"
Pros: "Friendly staff, legroom was OK, American's gates at ORD were fairly clean."
Cons: "Great big stain on the carpet around the end of the gates looked pretty bad."
Pros: "Timeliness of flight departure arrival"
Cons: "Food was of poor taste and quality on Etihad. Jet airways food good. Eye patch made of material that smelled strongly."
Cons: "The crew over exaggerates everything, I asked for an airsickness bag and I was offboarded! They didn't even rebook a flight for me!!! I had to buy one myself"
Pros: "Crew is friendly."
Cons: "- Entertainment systems are too old. - Seats are untidy - very congested seating"
Pros: "Crew was great. Seats great. Good great."
Cons: "Angled seats don't allow viewing out the window"
Pros: "When one country allows the same size of lagguage one way .The other way down the other country doesn't allow in the last moment. They do not understand how inconvenient it would be for the travelers to adjust the lagguage ."
Cons: "It was difficult to leave planned lagguage in dust bin."
Cons: "We booked in Etihad for International travel and we were asked to travel in American airlines. No food was served in that five and half hour flight"
Cons: "Food was terrible. Crew was indifferent."
Pros: "Professionalism and friendliness of crew Timely delivery of meals and drinks Clean bathroom"
Cons: "Non-punctuality (flight did not took off exact on time) Uncomfortable seats (cushions was too hard) No good choice for drinks Food was okay."
Pros: "Flight service was good (within flight)"
Pros: "Seat was very comfortable, plenty of leg room."
Cons: "Food trays left for 45 mins. This was premium economy Check in took forever even though I checked in 3 hours before departure. Didn't seem to be any staff near self serve check in screens to advise passengers."
Cons: "Simply everything"
Cons: "The food could have been a a bit better."
Cons: "Club World is a super dated product. The tech is old and you are uncomfortably close to your neighbors. Also even when you buy a business class ticket British Airways makes you pay to reserve a seat in advance if you don’t have status with them. That feels over the top for a premium customer."
Pros: "No complaints at all"
Pros: "Crew very helpful"
Cons: "New booking system where you cannot select seats without paying more money is outrageous. Will fly Virgin next time. Seats did not recline Flight left three hours late. Nearly missed connection. Very stressful experience"
Pros: "Getting our bags through on a tight connection - great job Staff were helpful in finding a safe place for my bassoon."
Cons: "inability to select seats without having to pay vast extra amounts of money is totally unacceptable. Ended up initially separated from my daughter and then on seats that did not recline. Flight left three hours late, nearly missed connection Next tine will fly Virgin. They look after their passengers!"
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "I had to throw away some very expensive facial creams/cosmetics on my connecting British Airway flight from London to MAdrid. I suddenly had to fit everything I had into a very small bag. They said it was policy, but I had been on a British Airway flight the whole time! Why was it allowed when I boarded?"
Pros: "Love BA food was outstanding! Best breakfast on a plane ever."
Cons: "Sadly they no longer offer the mid flight snack. Hence only good for food."
Pros: "Crew and staff friendly and helpful"
Cons: "My sear was broken and couldn't recline on a 10 hour trip. They tried to fix it but couldn't.."
Cons: "After taking off in San Francisco flight got re-routed to Minneapolis because of a sick passenger on board. Caused me to miss my connection in London and the subsequent flight I was put on because of the delay. Spent 10 hours overnihht at Heathrow in London because British Airways wasn't giving out hotel vouchers just £15 in meal vouchers. Disappointing."
Cons: "More legroom would have been nice"
Pros: "Checking in online 24 hours prior to departure I received up-dates thrice regarding the delay of the flight which was very convenient. I had also learned about the protections that I enjoy as a passenger checking in online. The flight caught up in terms of timing as I had to catch a connecting flight to the continent from London. I was very pleased, also with the courteous flight attendents, the food, the entertainment selection and sufficient leg room in economy class. Overall a lovely experience, indeed!"
Cons: "It has been a week and British airways still hasn't delivered my suitcase."
Pros: "Easy online Check in. Nice crew."
Cons: "Very tight space on flights."
Cons: "Food wasn't great."
Pros: "All great"
Cons: "I liked everything"
Cons: "Our vegetarian food was not available as requested."
Pros: "The entertainment selection and the friendly crew."
Cons: "The seats on the first flight were incredibly uncomfortable. There was no leg room, the aisles were incredibly narrow, and the seats were so close together that my neighbor and I bumped arms throughout the flight, and neither of us are large people. That was our first flight on BA and unfortunately it will probably be our last."
Cons: "Seat too small. No free wifi in the XXI century? !!!"
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Offer more water throughout the flight"
Cons: "Could not do online checkin due to some sort of problem with their booking system, and as a result couldn't choose our seats on the long haul flight."
Cons: "My bike was checked luggage and was late coming from London. It made me miss my alitali flight and had to spend the night in room."
Pros: "Across to entertainment helped pass the time"
Cons: "On an 11 + hour flight it's extremely difficult if not impossible to get any sleep when you can barely move your seat back. Try removing some seats ...yes, I know impossible"
Cons: "On time and good staff"
Pros: "I upgraded my seat fr more legroom"
Cons: "On the trip over, British Air had no record of my seat upgrades. They tried to accomodate, but it was not the same. They did process a payment for about $110 for upgrades both way, however, and I have written to get a refund. In general, British Air can be not responsive or helpful in the admin department and i will avoid them from hereon."
Pros: "The seates were nice and plush. The journey wasn't bumpy at all, and the pilot was funny. He made a fun comment saying 'he had someplace to be in New York so he will get us there as quickly as possible.' :P The crew was friendly and sweet."
Cons: "There was no food ! I assumed a flight from the west coast to the east coast would atleast provide with some food ! But nada. It bugged me more because I had to catch a another flight from new York to London. Other than that, guess it was pretty okay."
Pros: "First time I enjoy flying , everything was very good"
Pros: "Friendly efficient service"
Cons: "Spent $2000 on a flight SFO to London / Toulouse, expected a better seat and experience. Plane was old, seats uncomfortable, food horrible. No snacks available in between two horrible meals."
Pros: "The overall experience was very good from the angle of clean toilets, food and good leg space even in economy class."
Pros: "Everything related to the flight was very good."
Cons: "My wife lost her passport aboard the aircraft; it was not recovered. We do not feel that the BA staff did an adequate search. This caused us great difficulties with the immigration authorities at Heathrow."
Pros: "Not too much."
Cons: "No USB chargers or in seat power supply. Couldn't charge phone. Tiny screen with limited entertainment. Archaic system. No recognition of one world Sappire status. Bad food options, chicken or veg only. Very "grey" Englush Breakfast. Dinner food option not as announced. The entire experience was poor. Grumpy crew who seemed flustered and were not paying attention to service."
Pros: "BA's customer service was excellent and they helped us out by getting on the next plane with minimal delay ... By 4 hours."
Cons: "I was told a 2 hour transit time would be sufficient but when we arrived in London, we had to go through several gates with long lines at Terminal 5. I was leary that this was achievable without the long lines but on this day, we couldn't even get past the first gate before they told us that we will miss our connecting flight."
Pros: "The new A380 seats are absolutely awful."
Cons: "The try tables are small and already falling apart. The seats fell like they're already 20 years old, yet it's a new aircraft."
Pros: "The sound levels were way low resulting in much lower stress on this aircraft. The beast flew extremely well and was amazingly huge. The BA food was the best I had ever had on an airplane, (in economy) and generous, fresh and varied. The flight crew was very professional and the landings and take-offs were for my wife who is very sensitive to such events, very nice. Fantastic assortment of entertainment."
Cons: "There was not enough water available, and I made the mistake of not buying in the terminal. There is no public area to move around in, which I kind of thought there would be for such a huge airplane. The seats and room were even less than other airplanes (in "World Traveler"--economy) which is a drag because I am a bit shy of 6'. The seat in front of me was about 10" from my face during the flight with mine reclined all the way (and the person in front of me) Pretty much impossible to sleep--ugh."
Pros: "On time, no crashes"
Cons: "Extremely uncomfortable, hardly any room to breath"
Cons: "Seats were very cramped (as elsewhere) and I wish there were truly vegetarian options among the main options without having to order special meals. Otherwise good experience."
Pros: "Arrived at my destination"
Cons: "Bought British Air tickets, got their partner airline American Air flight instead and didn't know of this switch until after purchase. Very rude! Crappy old plane, departed late, crappy food, mediocre service. I wanted British Air specifically as they are good in these areas."
Pros: "That we made it safe"
Cons: "Seat not comfortable at all and crews not enjoyable. They barely smile. They were all about business We had an hour delay and I almost miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "While a bit pricey, the ability to upgrade when checking in allowed us a second chance at better comfort for the 10-hour flight. The plane was brand new and everything worked. The check-in crew, the flight crew, all were fantastic. The food was top notch and served in nice dishes."
Cons: "The screaming 8-year old in the Club World Cabin The lost Club World status when trying to check in to the lounge at LRH"
Pros: "The seat itself is adequate, but falling behind the times. The service of the FAs makes up for it though"
Pros: "british accents. that's about it."
Cons: "The plane was very old therefore did not have amenities newer planes have. no phone charging. bathrooms had old faucets that you have to keep pressing to wash hands therefore making it very awkward process. also horrible that you can't pick your seat more than 24 hours in advance without paying extra. other airlines just let you do it."
Pros: "It was American Plane and seat comfort and space WAS GREAT."
Pros: "Departure was on time and the crew members were exceptional."
Cons: "There was nothing about this trip not to like."
Cons: "After everyone was boarded in the plane, the pilot announced that a fuel pump was broken and that they would try to fix it. 2 and half hours later, the pilot announced they couldn't fix it and that a new one would have to come from London to San Francisco to replace it (as if the only place to get decent plane parts was London)!!!! The plane was rescheduled to fly the next day at 18.00. It didn't actually leave until after midnight, causing us to miss our connecting flights not just once, but again the next day. Communication by British Airways about what was going on and when we could expect to fly was awful throughout, and their customer service was worse than abysmal. I will avoid flying BA in the future."
Cons: "Too short time for connecting flight resulted in missing my connection. BA decided to try a new software system on a high travel date which resulted in an hour delay. Many passengers missed their connecting flights."
Pros: "Airbus 380"
