Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Cons: "The seats are a bit cramped for long international flights."

First making my area narrow than all the other seats and between the plane leaving late and the terrible process of loading people on the plane . Delta airlines was all about the up sale from charging for every bag to charging for internet ,food so on and so forth. Also one bathroom in the middle of the plane ? REALLY ? Out of tissue , paper towels , and tissue one hour into the flight . What in the Hell is going on with this airline ? Won’t fly with them again ."

Cons: "i shouldn’t have to pay for headphones"

Cons: "Very little leg room and of course as soon as we were in the Air the person in front of me reclined his seat all the way back so the Monitor was only a few inches from my face. This was my single major complaint. The food was not great but typical of an American Carrier. The foreign airlines do better on food. The last time I went to Europe I took WOW, the cheapest budget Airline and the leg room was MUCH better. You would think Delta could do better."

Pros: "Very nice stewardess on this plane. Seating was excellent."
Cons: "Crew was not apologetic after we missed connecting flight due to technical difficulties with their plane. I was re-routed to Barcelona and then a very budgetary Airlines to Athens which was ridiculously tight again with seating and flight was almost an hour late. Luggage didn't come until following day. And to top it off, I thought I would be flying with KLM on both legs!"
Cons: "We had to wait 10+ minutes to park in Boston. We arrived early but didn't park until past the projected time of arrival."
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating and found me a new seat when I requested one."
Cons: "My assigned seat was next to a morbidly obese man. He overflowed his seat and took up at least five inches of my seat. The seats have become so narrow that even an average weight male has trouble fitting his shoulders into the seats."
Pros: "Seems like people that work for Delta are too old and too comfortable. Don’t want to work nor do they appreciate customers. Gate agent in SLC complained she was the only one there and could not help. Tried to send me tohelp desk which would have made me miss my flight. Flight attendant couldn’t move my back pack in bin did not tell me she had a bad shoulder. She should not be working then if she can’t lift a small backpack. Omg"
Pros: "Everything was great. Very nice flight"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Had a great experience on my flight. All on time, and connections were great."
Pros: "I had 45 minutes to transfer planes in Atlanta and made it in plenty of time even though it was far. plenty of information given regarding incoming flight and departure. Boarding was also easy."
Cons: "The engine noise in the plane was so loud I couldn't watch a movie. My gluten free meal was awful and tasteless. I would have preferred yogurt and fruit instead of the chicken and vegetables with a rice cake."
Pros: "The courtesy of the staff and the seats in the "delta comfort" section."
Cons: "Too many interruptions. i'm not sure if there is a way but there should be a way to only serve only those who are requesting service."
Pros: "They offered water and snacks It was quick"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Embarked and disembarked quickly. Flight arrived early"
Pros: "The seats were the widest with the most cushion and padding I've ever had on any flight, I think all their seats were like that. The plane we were on had more leg room than your average flight. Also the backs of the chair were very tall, leaving even mpre head room perfect for tall people . I fly a lot and sometimes my knees hit the seat in front of me or when they recline it shoves the tray to close to you. Not on this flight there was enough room for me to lay back in the seat had the adjustable headrest that went up and down and also curved in to hold your head from falling on your neighbor next to you. Love the fact they had the USB plug-in in front of you. And the crew constantly kept coming through to empty trash and offer beverages. The plane was clean bathrooms in front and back of the airplane. Over all quiet engine and we were above the wings. Temperature good."
Cons: "The crew member that was checking in people at the gate would talk so fast we could barely understand what he was saying on the overhead announcement. I was traveling with someone who was hearing impaired so we were unaware of that they were getting ready to board. The electronic TV monitor wasn't updating to say boarding to notify people that would be helpful for the hearing impaired. Or--if a crew member is muffled on the announcement or talks too fast you can't understand or know what's going on. The most frustrating thing for me and my daughter we were both expecting to use Delta online entertainment. There are no monitor screens in the seats in front of us on this plane. So we were able to use our phones, but it would not download and once It finally downloaded we couldn't upload any of the movies. Connection speed way too slow. The warning said there were too many people on it at that time. Also I like it when they offer free headphones for people that don't have them. An example that would benefit people that don't want to listen to loud people on the plane or babies that are crying."
Pros: "Extremely uncomfortable the entire flight. Seats too close together, then when you recline you hit the person behind you."
Cons: "Good tv shows, friendly attendants"
Pros: "Over all was okay, but when we all boarded the plane, they last minute said the pilot would be late, and delayed our flight for almost 2 hours. We were almost late to our next flight in Minneapolis to Raleigh which was also pretty upsetting. But, the service was decent, we didn't order any food besides the free complimentary drink & snack and the entertainment was very good. There was a wide range of films, shows, and podcasts to watch."
Cons: "Management was very bad- Delta screwed up really bad"
Pros: "Movies- pro staff"
Pros: "Friendliness of omboard crew"
Cons: "Flight was more than 2 hours late"

Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "More comfortable seating."
Pros: "Comfortable seating, good food served by this airline"
Cons: "The woman seated next to me had the worst body odor ever and this was a 10 hour flight-nearly brought me to hurl. She was the mother of s flight attendant as well, and was constantly brought amenities from the first class cabin. Really not appropriate for the rest of us in premium economy"
Cons: "Not much legroom and no tv’s on a 10-hour flight"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating"
Pros: "Friendly crew, tried their best to accommodate"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and once in the plane more delay followed. Food was pasta (again!) while entertainment was non-existent. Flight is long enough to show at least a route map."
Pros: "Crew was good overall"
Cons: "Food was overheated and bland in taste. No on board entertainement"
Cons: "People in economy who have no common sense and put their seat all the way back into the personal space of the person sitting behind them. They should not be able to recline that far. If they need that much room take first class."
Pros: "Crews was excellent, always refilling water which I can appreciate so much. Keep it up! Loved the United pilot at John Wayne who came out just to say hi, let us know we were in good hands."
Cons: "Had to wait in tarmac forever from Frankfurt to Florence"
Pros: "Food was good & they served a full meal!"
Cons: "Crew appeared annoyed with everyone. No entertainment provided."
Cons: "Entertainment system on LH flight was slow to react and frustrating."
Cons: "My luggage did not arrive on the flight from Frankfort to Athens. The Lost Luggage staff was very helpful, but the process took a long, long time. Then when my luggage arrived the next morning, no one was staffing the Gold kiosk, so it took another hour and a half to get my luggage. (We had received an email saying that the luggage would be available at 7:30; no one was there to provide it to us)"
Pros: "Quick flight. O ly 2 people per row. Bags did not get lost"
Cons: "Walking to different concourse. Then walk down to bus and ride 10 mins to plane and wait to get on. First come first seated."
Pros: "Friendly staff.. Good food and as we had emergency exit seats there was plenty of leg room. Unfortunately no entertainment was offered on this flight."
Cons: "No entertainment. Plane was cold."
Pros: "The engagement of the crew. The coffee and cake. The attendant offered to help me with my bag to the door of the aircraft. The same attendant remembered to give me coffee later and provided the stir stick just as I was able ask for one. I felt cared for."
Cons: "They ran out of the protein meal selections.e.g. Chicken I think. Pasta with sauce and one small cube of cheese with a little salad does not qualify as a balanced mealThe attendant tried to make up for it by giving me more cheese blocks."
Pros: "The crew was really good. The food was much better than my cross the Atlantic flight. There wasn’t any entertainment so I am not sure how to rate it."
Cons: "Frankfurt airport is not very good. Why does a passenger who has cleared security in the US have to do it again in Frankfurt? It is an unnecessary requirement that causes some passengers to miss their connecting flight. I will give them a pass on clearing immigration But going thru security....no."
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "1 hour delay again"
Pros: "Your helpline number is very disappointing... the staff on the call is very rude.. they did not help us in payment and was least bothered about the customers.. i am a frequent traveler with luftansa and this is the last time I am traveling in luftansa... teach your staff some manners about how to talk to customers"
Cons: "The staff is pathetic amd cery rude"
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "The plane appears to have left with NO luggage on board. 3 days later, I am still without luggage. The promise to deliver the missing luggage within 24 hours was not honoured."
Cons: "Had to run thru airport to catch plane, thn long wait to board."
Cons: "Air was stuffy."
Cons: "Still in Munich."
Cons: "I was never notified that there was no 1:45pm flight. Had I not gotten to the airport early I would not have made the flight to Chicago.at 12:25pm. I was originally scheduled to to to Munich but the flight was to Frankfurt. The plane arrived early so I had to make different plans for someone to pick me up Very disappointed in lack of communication"
Pros: "They even filled my water bottle a couple of times in addition to numerous glasses at my seat."
Pros: "Equipment, crew"
Cons: "The boarding of the plane was disorganized."
Pros: "NEVER AGAIN"
Pros: "A male flight attendance made me feel uncomfortable. I sat in empty sit with number 3 instead of 4 and he asked me to check my number on my boarding pass. WIth an extremely directive and dictating tone in his voice he told me YOU SHOULD GO AND SIT to what your ticket says. It is VERY important to be sited, although the seats are available you should be sited where your boarding pass directs you to be."
Cons: "I realized that some people of their crew are extremely insane! I have never had an issue like this, with DELTA or AIR FRANCE, or KLM, or NORWEGIAN, or SAS If it was only one persona that I had to deal with, which it was on my flight from NY to Munich I would say , it was coincidence . One person is not a statistical point and accuse the whole Company. But this was repeated on my second flight from Munich to Athens. Then I said, this is not coincidence, it is a pattern that is repeated and not professional . NEVER AGAIN WITH LUFTHANSA is my decision and my recommendation."
Cons: "Wheelchair assistance did not arrive at gate."
Cons: "It was cancelled and I had to wait in line for over one and a half hours to speak with someone to find a solution."
Cons: "They don’t have order while boarding No space for the carry on- they didn’t ask to check them for free."
Cons: "All flights in Frankfurt boarded via jet bridge. Flight to Greece boarded via a bus. Freezing weather in Frankfurt. Are Germans prejudiced to Greek passengers?"
Pros: "The crew was more helpful than the transatlantic flight."
Cons: "My seat. It was right behind the first class and as the crew rushed to serve them, they threw the separating curtain at my face as I was sitting on the corridor. It was so frequent I couldn't sleep and the passanger did the same."
Cons: "Missed my connection due to airline delay and was put on a flight 12 hours later"
Pros: "Didn’t die."
Cons: "Took off almost an hour late. Flight personnel repeatedly skipped me for drinks, meals, etc. on plane for nearly 8 hours without a drop of water."
Pros: "On all my flights everything was on time and ready to go. Crew was super helpful and friendly. Ready great service and constant visual of crew for us if we needed them. Was not expecting to be fed sooo much on my flights which was awesome! Seats were comfortable, pillow and blanket were a nice accommodation as well! The entertainment was awesome - made 8 hours quickly disappear! Will definitely fly with Lufthansa again when I go overseas!"
Pros: "On time, friendly crew, efficient connection."
Cons: "Food was below average - even considering discount tourist class seat."
Pros: "Flight attendants we good"

Pros: "The service and food was excellent"
Cons: "The seats are too close together like most airlines but for a long flight this is very uncomfortable"
Pros: "The crew was excellent, friendly, and attentive, especially paying attention to my kids. The pilot and his crew did a great job during the flight as well. Thank them all for a pleasant and safe flight!"
Cons: "The only concern I have is regarding the diet. During the shorter flight, from Budapest to Frankfurt, the stewardess informed me that she couldn't get me gluten-free meal/snack. I understand that catering to special diet needs is not easy but following a gluten-free diet is not my choice, it is something I need to deal and live with on a daily basis. I felt disappointed since I had a long trip ahead of me, and I know that I, just like all the other passengers, had paid for the flight that should include the meal as well. Thank you for reading my concern and trying to see it from me, the passenger's point of view."
Pros: "Crew was great and helpful. Flight was half empty so it was comfortable."
Cons: "The plane was not very clean."
Cons: "Vegetarian meal choice not offered"

Cons: "The boarding process was poorly executed"
Cons: "A man next to me took a picture of me when he thought I was asleep."
Pros: "Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Boarding was like a "free-for-all", the gate agents exerted NO control at all. The departure was delayed about 15 minutes (no big thing" but then we sat in our seats for an additional 45-50 minutes for a total of more than an hour!. This after an 11+ hour first leg."
Pros: "The crew was great, the aircraft new and tidy, the flight arrived a bit early, the food and beverage options were solid. Loved the complimentary wine and beer! Good movie selection."
Cons: "I was assigned a different seat than I selected when booking - lost my aisle spot although I checked a few days ago and a seat of my choice was clearly assigned on my reservation. The airline agent in the airport was rude and not helpful."
Pros: "Extra leg room in the emergency exit area was great for a tall person. Good food."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic and they switched the gates. The flight was overbooked. No entertainment offered."
Pros: "It departed and arrived on time. The boarding process was very efficient thanks to Frankfurt's automated ticked checking gates."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment."
Cons: "I had paid for an upgrade to sit in the front of the cabin with extra legroom (row 14A). When I boarded a man sat it my seat. He had not paid for the upgrade, but the crew let him stay in my seat. I had asked him to social distance but he continued to sit right behind me bo matter which seat I moved to. He argued with the crew until they gave up and let him stay. They did not check his boarding pass or ask him to move to his assigned seat I found a different seat away from him but I don’t see the point in paying for extra legroom when the crew let’s people who haven’t paid for it sit it those seats. I felt harassed by the man and was very uncomfortable the whole flight. I am considering my next step, I think I should at least receive a refund for the upgrade I paid for."
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was amazing"
Cons: "Wifi on klm"
Pros: "15 years ago I told myself not to fly Delta anymore. But these 2 flights Detroit to Amsterdam and back changed my mind. I enjoyed the flight very much and I'm looking forward to the next one."

Pros: "KLM never disappoints, the cabin crew was extremely kind and helpful!. The food was great, nice leg room in regular economy class, thousands of movies and tv shows...it was great!"
Cons: "Well there was a LOT of turbulence but no one can control the weather and shout out to the pilot for giving us such a smooth landing a rough weather!"
Pros: "The bed was comfortable. Entertainment selection and large TV screen was good. The KLM crew is amazing, as usual."
Cons: "Food quality was not so good."
Pros: "Nice staff and no delay"
Cons: "Instead of crisps maybe a bit of cheese or crackers"
Cons: "Flight 2 hours delayed, started boarding but had to wait on line 10 more minutes on boarding ramp for plane door to be opened, upon landing in Dublin had to wait on tarmac for anther 15 minutes for stairs to arrive and be connected to airplane. Then had to wait another hour for checked luggage...."
Cons: "This return flight was much better than the flight going to Amsterdam. I believe the biggest factor was the type of aircraft. The old 747 just didn't meet expectations. The newer 777 on the way back was much more comfortable, with better amenities."
Pros: "Crew was great and professional."
Cons: "Entertainment controls were outdated and confusing to operate. There were no charging ports."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant but not attentive to detail. Bypassed is completely for snack and drink towards end of 9 hour flight!"

Pros: "Everything excellent. Comfortable seats in business."
Pros: "The boarding was easy and you didn't have to wait inline for that long"
Cons: "KLM needs to upgrade the entertainment. It was very hard to see the images on the screen. The planes that KLM uses are old and they sure need to be upgraded."
Pros: "Food was excellent, frequent and filling"
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable compared to my prior leg of the journey. Unfortunately the bathrooms were not clean, I understand that it's not the sole responsibility of the crew and passengers need to be mindful too."
Pros: "The leg room, was surprisingly roomy"
Cons: "The food and that there was no entertainment."
Cons: "Customer service"
Cons: "The cabin crew was racist. She told me to move back from an empty seat just because she wanted one of the guys ( from her country ) to set on it! Very rude and racist."
Pros: "I enjoyed the attention to detail and comfort. Helped to make the flight easier to handle."
Pros: "Nice flight, nice crew, and a nice experience."
Cons: "Delay can occur sometimes but it wiuld be better to be explained its reason and the estimated time for boarding. The customer service at CDG airport was the worst ever and all people standing boarding desk were useless without any mind what they are doing."
Pros: "Food was just fine, movie selection very good"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat cushions, lights were truned on too early (1.5 hours before flight landed)"
Cons: "The 767 is configured oddly and th business class seats are so narrow it feel like you are sleeping in a coffin"

Pros: "Everything - Checkin, crew, food, entertainment"
Pros: "Jet airways flight till mumbai"
Cons: "Poor legspace in Klm flight till Amsterdam"
Pros: "Overall, my trip to Cardiff via Amsterdam was smooth and delightful. I've flown a few short trips this summer and I was pleasantly surprised to find KLM still offered complimentary snacks. What a refreshing change!"
Cons: "There was no entertainment which is why I assigned that category only one star. The boarding process in Amsterdam could have been a bit smoother. Announcements were no clear."
Pros: "Wide selection of entertainment, food was good."
Cons: "Boarding unorganized, but that may have been more of a passenger issue then KLM"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, but they only had limited resources to work with."
Cons: "Worst aircraft I have been on in years. No wifi or entertainment, no power outlets, only bad wine/beer for a 3+ hour flight is mediocre at best..."

Pros: "captain was great."
Cons: "Airlines had no record of our pets flying with. Missed our flight even though we were there over 3 hours prior. Ruined the last day of vacation. Now we are waiting for the promised help in Amsterdam. No one is here. No one knows anything. Feel like crying"
Pros: "They flew full speed to catch up with the delays."
Cons: "Departure was scheduled with one hour delay. When everyone was boarded they mentioned a leaking toilet. It took them 1,5 hours to disable the toilet. In the mean time, no drinks, no snacks, nothing. So we should depart at 18:00 but it became 19:30. Our first drinks and meal was no earlier then 21:00. The crew should have anticipated better that the technical problem would at least take one hour and give everyone a drink at least."
Pros: "The price was nice."
Cons: "Plane looked unkept on exterior. Crew was nice but lazy."
Pros: "It was a decent train ride."
Cons: "Stating it’s a train from the beginning and not having to go from one train station to another."
Pros: "Crew asked us if we’d like to move to an empty row to be more comfortable without us even requesting it."
Cons: "Bigger coffee cups? Really nothing to complain about. Everything I would expect from a flight. A++"
Pros: "The gentleman at the check out his name was Omar went over and above the call of duty for Customer Service me being an American he walked me through each step of using flybe via air France and paying for checking my bags and even the carry on luggage and getting me through security etc."
Cons: "Very cramped seat on the TGV train. I will definitely choose and pay a seat on my own next time, rather than accepting the on picked by Air France... And it will be cheaper, too!"
Cons: "First class bathroom could have been cleaner and wider - very narrow, hard to maneuver"
Pros: "All went right namely the seats but the luggage condition is the worst"
Cons: "Air France is not a low fare airlines, I had to pay 225 USD against 3 luggages which is not acceptable. We should have the right for one luggage per ticket as all other airlines. If I knew this will happen, I wouldn’t use Air France and this will be the last time I buy a ticket on Air France"
Pros: "Fly was delayed.i was told my bag would go to end but it was not.instead of coming to the hotel 7pm i came 1am."
Cons: "Explain me to take the bag on time.it was almost left in the airport."
Pros: "Entertainment system failed repeatedly."
Cons: "Entertainment system failed repeatedly."
Pros: "Air. France usual"
Cons: "No lights working on plane. Couldn't read or do work WiFi wasn't working either"
Pros: "The flight departed on time and arrived early. The crew were all courteous and kind even to the man who was sitting next to me who seemed quite demanding."
Cons: "I am small but the seats seemed a bit too tight. The plane itself seemed a bit outdated."
Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "The snacks that were handed out prior to landing were not very good and it looked as though a lot of people in our section felt the same way. Also, there were a lot of empty seats in the comfort and premium sections, but non of our gold medallions were offered an upgrade."
Pros: "Left on time. No turbulence."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Seats! They were too small!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly!"
Cons: "Once again no vegetarian options."
Pros: "Good food and crew"
Cons: "Plane was old and seats were super tiny. Even an average guy would be uncomfortable in it. Can’t sit in one spot for longer than 15 min without getting sore."
Pros: "Flight was delayed 4 hours with no explanation"
Cons: "Asked for wheel chair assistance and was not met in Paris. Had difficulty and barely made my flight. A gentleman who worked at airport assisted me"
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating. I couldn’t have ask for anything better...pass on my praise to the flight crew of 0083"
Pros: "FA kept bumping into my seat waking me up"
Cons: "Return the 777 to 9 across"
Pros: "Good food and service"
Pros: "Really liked the new touch screens (with very good responsiveness). Also liked the food selection (the champagne was nice, so was the menu we were given)."
Pros: "Short flight so I can't really complain. It was no frills, standard small aircraft with no high tech entertainment system. Seats were fairly comfortable"
Pros: "Over all pretty good for price."
Pros: "Not much but the staff"
Cons: "No room, boarding was slow, zero bag or legroom"
Pros: "Flight crew, pilot,food and entertainment options were great"
Cons: "Baggage took a while to reach baggage claim but maybe a bit impatient after a long day"
Cons: "Missed flight due to lack of direction, last minute gate change and they shut door in our face after telling us they were holding plane"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "Didn’t have the meal I ordered Got in 30 min early but no gate for us. We waited over 80min on tarmac to deplane I paid extra for an exit seat but there was no indication when I did that there would be walls for armrests and that made it very uncomfortable for me"
Cons: "Entertainment screen did not work; in neighboring seat it could not be switched off when we wanted to sleep; sourly employees everywhere (re-booking counter an exception); food close not being edible and cold; I forgot my watch on when going through security in the Air France terminal; when I started to say "sorry" I was yelled at by the screener who said that she will do the talking; she sent me back through the scanner twice without my watch, then once more with the carry-on and made sure that I went to the end of a very long line to wait for another screening rather than having me just go through the scanner without my watch. Needless to say, there was nothing else suspicious about me once the watch was removed. Eager to exercise her power, the security person did not seem to consider that she slowed down a long line of people waiting to be screened. I should add that I am 73 yrs old grey haired female who has traveled a lot both for pleasure and business during my entire life, often to some difficult places and that I do not argue with or provoke those in power in a situation like this. The yelling and the sending me repeatedly through the scanner, which did not beep once the watch was removed, was beyond anything I had experienced anywhere else. The sending me to the very end of the line seemed outright spiteful. (I did miss the plane connection.)"
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "Boarding this large plane went relatively quickly and orderly."
Cons: "Seats were tight and got a bit uncomfortable. This was a long flight. Could use a much better cushion."
Cons: "Airplane delay to take off 1 unknown reason After landing in Paris 50 min sitting inside airplane moving around Late for flight transfer. Sitting in Paris airport 5 hours. Customer service no working. Never fly Air France anymore !"
Pros: "Direct flight from Indy to CDG is great. The plane was not so full, so I hope business improves so we can keep it going. Very smooth flight, with good and friendly crew."
Pros: "Sometimes you get surprised, with this specific flight, we had an excellent young and perfect cabin crew. Thanks, Joon!"
Pros: "The friendliness and courtesy of the staff."
Cons: "One piece of my luggage was left behind in Paris."
Pros: "Arriving safely."
Cons: "We didn't get boarding passes for the second flight at EDI so we had to exit the secure area, get boarding passes, and go through security a second time for the same trip."
Cons: "They loosed our reserved seats, our luggage, food was awful, ground staff was disrespectful."
Pros: "Free snack and drinks. Good service."
Pros: "Nothing... and we were late which made me miss my connecting flight and I wasn’t reimbursed because it was with a different airline"
Cons: "See above and the food was disgusting"
Pros: "Super fast boarding and smooth takeoff"
Pros: "Very poor sound quality on the earphones. Made it very difficult to watch a movie and almost impossible to listen to music."
Cons: "Not checking my carry on weight at check in then letting me walk all the way to security to then check my bag and tell me to go back to check in then the counter is closed and they tell me it's too late and that I need to get ride of my things so that my bag is under weight and barely making the flight"
Pros: "Short, lots of leg space"
Cons: "There are always delays. Today it was that internet was down."
Pros: "the Airline"
Cons: "The Airport, Security, Boarder control."
Pros: "Getting there on time despite delay"
Cons: "entertainment had very old media and no recent additions. Crew was not very organized"
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. I did not find the seats comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The food was really poor. The chicken was as dry as it can be. The food taste was poor. I flow 3 weeks ago with KLM and the food was pretty good for flight food. In a French company I expect much more. The entertainment system on the airbus a380 was like an enchant IT system from the past. Very poor reaction time. Very messy and not people oriented at all. Especially after KLM's And Delta experience."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, but the sliding action, instead of recline, took getting used to. Food was very good. Snacks available on demand, along with drinks. Complimentary wine with meal was also quite good. Entertainment system was first rate with plenty of options for TV. movies, music, games, etc..."
Cons: "Sitting in the middle two seats in the center of the 777 left me stuck for most of the flight. Got up only once. Wife's feet and ankles were swollen by the end of the flight. Not enough legroom to move much during the flight and not enough aisle space to get around with the plane so full. Have made flights twice as long on the 747 and were able to get up and walk."
Pros: "Panamá airport is a disaster, unorganized and dirty"
Cons: "Panamá airport"
Pros: "It was a fine flight"
Cons: "no specific feedback"
Pros: "Boarded 45 minutes late, and then sat in the plane for another two hours before take off due to a problem with the lie computer. Would have been better to spend that time in the terminal and given credits to buy food, etc. My seat was a regular seat (non exit) and the seat did not recline properly, the USB drive was broken, overall the plane felt unmaintained. The crew was friendly and food was good but I felt not enough was done to accommodate the extra hours we had to wait on the plane."
Pros: "Crew was ok and the seat was a bit uncomfortable. I am over 6 feet so I always have a bit of a problem with the seat"
Pros: "safe trip"
Cons: "no entertainment, no food, would like to be aware no food"
Cons: "Plugs to charge devices"
Cons: "No meals served, and no beverages, unless you are willing to pay inflated prices for garbage. They will give you tap water if you ask, and that's that. I still find this approach despicable and unnecessarily stingy, especially since this is BA, not a lowcost."
Cons: "We had to beg for one cup of water on a 3 & 1/2 flight. Very poor customer service."
Cons: "Checking, boarding and overall experience"
Pros: "Crew members were all very nice"
Cons: "Long delays"
Cons: "The entertainment is missing"
Pros: "Cancel month ago, NO money back !!! No good company"
Cons: "Cancel month ago, NO money back ! No good company."
Cons: "Had no idea we had not payed to check a bag. Could have paid online prior to boarding for 30 pounds, but because we did not know, had to pay 65 pounds in order to check a bag at the airport. I am extremely dissatisfied with this flight and with British airways in general. I wish I would have known about the baggage and I could have saved myself a LOT of money. British airway crew were rude and unhelpful. I will not be flying with them again."
Cons: "You have to pay for food, snacks and water on this flight. there were no complimentary snacks or drinks given."
Cons: "Still waiting to get out of London... so not good."
Pros: "Boarding was fast."
Cons: "Not even a complimentary cup of coffee or tea, just tap water."
Cons: "The AA flight from NYC was late arriving at Heathrow, causing me to miss the connection. AA/BA was very good about orienting me to the new plan, but the delay was very inconvenient and being in the last row of the newly arranged flight to Lisbon was downright unpleasant."
Cons: "The equipment was old and didn't seem to be well maintained. And they did not offer even a glass of water on a 3 and a half hour flight. Even water was on sale!"
Pros: "Ability to prclear customs, that’s about it........."
Cons: "Going from Air Lingus to American Airlines - they were unable to coordinate our checked baggage. The AA gate agent had no idea what to do. Unsurprisingly, when we landed our bags did not. We are still waiting to see where they are and if we get them back. It seemed that even though we asked and were reassured several times, the team at AA was unable to deal with the luggage transfer"
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Cons: "Plane smelled bad. Had to pay for food. Not even water was included. Inside the plane is worn and needs upgrades."
Pros: "Too many delays"
Pros: "Food was good. Decent movie choices"
Cons: "Plane was older and in poor repair. Our air vents and over head lights had been completely removed for our row - so we could not read or knit as others could. Seats are far to small and close together to allow for any real rest or sleep."
Cons: "Frumpy and unkempt crew. No longer offer complimentary coffee or anything. You must pay for everything. Had to give my carryon bag even though there was lots of room inside the plane"
Pros: "it got there"
Cons: "how it got there"
Pros: "flawless flight, pleasant captain, friendly crew, free drinks, better than average food, enough food, toilet rooms not crowded, entertainment as good as can be expected, charging stations, reclining seats to the extreme"
Cons: "music could have more variety. window shade jammed... could not close, light broken, impossible to extricate oneself from seats due to reclined seats in front."
Pros: "Comfortable seat and ample legroom. Drink before takeoff."
Cons: "The uncertainty of whether I would have a seat at all."
Cons: "food was not offered you had pay. to eat which in my opinion is not proper at least a sandwich should be offered,"
Pros: "Comfort but only since I paid extra to upgrade to business class. World Traveler Plus is mediocre at best."
Cons: "Boarding process was chaotic."
Pros: "More modern plane."
Cons: "No snacks, no food, 1 drink. Aegaen airlines gave good from Spain to Athens and back, for a lot less ticket flight."
Pros: "I liked your entertainment , movies, series lots to choose from."
Cons: "Your crew was horrible, I had assistance but they seemed bothered in helping me to help me get to my seat... I pity those who might assistance with that crew on future flights... Hopefully they will get the nicer crew from NY to London they were amazing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed almost an hour. Not even free water. You had to buy it."
Cons: "Flight was changed and I had to wait 8 hours for the connection."
Cons: "Didn't know catering was on sale"
Cons: "No free food. No movie, no usb"
Pros: "Great Crew, fast boarding, very accommodating"
Cons: "We were mislead on gate assigment which impacted our whole experience. There was no entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Is this really the British Airways business class within Europe? What a disappointment. Felt like I was in economy except the only difference was I got my drink served in glass rather than plastic. Why don't you get some tips from Emirates considering from Abu Dhabi to Doha you had 10"+ tvs infront of you, tons of leg room and actually good food offerings."
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "Heathrow is huge and our gate changed during the last hour with out announcement until 35 minutes before the flight. There was a 2nd flight flying at the same time from a different gate with the same flight # with simply an A added which was very confusing."
Cons: "Absolutely no food and we were charged for a soda... seriously? It took the WIFI 5 minutes to process the 1.75 sale. Are you kidding BA? Flight attend were indifferent to passengers and actually held their chlorine with the foolish shopping cart when we tried to make it to the rest room. Unpleasant at best. Oh, and there was no entertainment at all on the 767 we had unless you count the magazine. Sorry BA, you have some work to do."
Cons: "Very noisy plane"
Cons: "Checking into Heathrow was interesting because they have automated systems to bag drop. I always like talking to a person which I could have done but was unaware. I had printed my boarding passes which then was sent to the automated line. That being said I had an issue with my carry on it was a literally too big because of the handle sticking out. So I had to check it. One of the women there was kind and sent met back to the British Airways check in section again to check it. She said don't worry it'll be free. So I went to the assigned line and a woman stopped me and told me I needed to stand with the rest of the people in the checked baggage line not the hand baggage line. I said I was sent to this line. She said well you're going to have to pay if it is too big. I said I was sent to this line because I was told it would be free to check it. Her attitude/tone was rude. Which for me was not ok. I had just landed in Heathrow from Newark and was starting jet lag, plus I literally was able to carry on my bag at Newark. Same company! I was trying my best to be kind but she just kept insisting that I was going to pay for the bag. I then stated that I already had paid for the bag! As I had paid for 4 and only checked 3! So if necessary this would be the 4th bag. Now I would not have had to do this if British Airways had allowed me to tack on my Athens trip to my Heathrow trip. When I found out they could do that they said it would be an extra $1025 to do so. I told them that I would just go through customs and get my bags and put them on the Athens flight. Of course I get to the counter and the woman there was wonderful and told me not to worry that it would be taken care of. So thank you to the woman who diverged a ridiculous argument over the handle not fitting in the cage. Moving forward boarding was interesting as I have never ridden in a train that takes you to the plane on the tarmac. It was a little long and VERY hot as they fill them to the brim and it was a good 10 min ride with people packed like sardines. When we got to the plane boarding was quick and efficient. The seating in that plane was very much like a spirit flight for close to 4 hours. There was a lot of turbulence and the landing was a little hard but that's to be expected in planes."
Pros: "One of the flight Attendants was went out of her way to assist me with a different meal option that was non dairy."
Pros: "Short flight, but it was OK."
Pros: "Efficient and on time"
Cons: "Movie started too late so there wasn't time to finish"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "The arrival, planning and hosting at Heathrow was probably worst I have experienced in 30 years. We had a tight connection, no attempt was made by anyone to prioritize those with less than 45 minute connections. We had one immigration officer for 2 lanes including the fast lane, what is the point of it. After immigration the automatic system did not let us in the boarding area. We were redirected by staff to leave the secure area without any clear explanation of what to do next. When we arrive in the ticketing area, we, several of us, went to try to go through security. That is when we were told we missed the connection. Then we were told to go to B1, after waiting in line we were told to go to zone E for reticketing. At which point I went in standby, only passenger from the group following to Edinburgh, did not make the 2nd flight either. Waited 6 hours at Heathrow..,"
Pros: "Great service and experience."
Cons: "The boarding was a little long."
Cons: "Never boarded the plane. Connecting flight got delayed by 2 hrs and 57 minutes leaving from Madrid. After 2 hours of hassle, Iberia airlines was able to put me on another flight from Madrid to London to NY."
Pros: "Nothing stood out good or bad. Average plane. Average service."
Pros: "the plane was comfortable even when full, although there are only two toilets for over 200 people in coach which makes it difficult sometimes"
Cons: "I used to live in London in the past, and commute with BA routinely, without any considerable issues. With this in mind, I booked this flight through the american site as I now live in the US. Big mistake. Even though I'm still a BA member and I checked in 24 hours prior to departure on the minute, I had no way of choosing a seat, in fact I had to pay to change my assigned emergency exit aisle seat. Secondly, there was a 5,5 hour delay, due to fog, which affected BA but not Easyjet or Aegean flying the same route at the same time, leaving me looking at all the other passengers taking off while I waited at the airport without any notice from my company. This resulted in me getting a debilitating migraine, for which I had to request painkillers on the plane. For anyone who hasn't done this before, despite how helpful the staff are, there's always "procedure" to be followed and papers to be signed before obtaining tylenol. Finally, when I contacted BA customer service to request a refund for this trip, considering if I had booked with any other airline I wouldn't have gone through all that, I was told it was my fault for not carrying painkillers and they "absolutely do not reimburse" such situations involving the weather. All in all, this was the last BA flight I will ever book and I am happy to go back to the US where customer service has an actual meaning and passenger wellbeing is always a priority."
Pros: "The audio did work for movies"
Cons: "I felt very warm and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Food options were great! Very good value"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and unstructured"
