Pros: "There was plenty of space under the seat in front of me for my personal items."
Cons: "There was an issue with a part on the plane so the flight was delayed so it could get fixed before takeoff. That is not a big deal, I'd rather it be safe than on time. But the way crew and staff handled it was pretty unprofessional. No one seemed to know what was going on or what to do."

People loosing time and money.. 9 people couldn’t get seat on the play they paid for... tomorrows flight is same sting... this is last time fling delta... and we are silver medallions... who fly a lot!!!"

People loosing time and money.. 9 people couldn’t get seat on the play they paid for... tomorrows flight is same sting... this is last time fling delta... and we are silver medallions... who fly a lot!!!"

Pros: "Pilot and his ability to maneuver the turbulence. Also variety of snacks."
Cons: "Felt hot in the plane."

Pros: "The movies offered were decent"
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat I sit down after they squeezed us all in like sardines and come to my surprise there is no window in my aisles it had been covered up in plastic . 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 ."

Pros: "very fast boarding , attentive , and easy to figure out"
Cons: "seats cushions"

Pros: "Thankfully I had an Aisle Seat so I could move around a bit. Every seat was taken and it was like a sardine can."
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: "No problems occured"
Cons: "Takes so long to board"

Cons: "Touch screen monitor was unable to register touch, so no entertainment available."

Pros: "It's a fast flight and boarding was quick."
Cons: "The terminal at LGA airlines is terrible."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Multilpe delays"

Pros: "Excellent seat assignment good leg room plane on time staff friendly"

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: "Gluten free snacks, hooray!"

Cons: "On time and nice media"

Pros: "Crew members were very nice and friendly and dealt with the desire for passengers to switch seats in a very nice way even with annoying passengers."
Cons: "Sadly due to turbulence there was no beverage service and a very rushed snack service which I know wasn't their fault but just overall flight okay."

Pros: "Fabulous fight. Attentive staff and I love the free entertainment tv’s."

Pros: "anaheim"
Cons: "luggage did not arrive same time with me and not the same airport"

Cons: "Felt like I was sitting in my neighbors lap!"

Cons: "TSA Pre-check info not loaded on flight from LAX to PDX."

Pros: "Over cramped No Space for carry on slow service"
Cons: "Over cramped No Space for carry on slow service"

Cons: "start from the back to the front for god's sake! crew is often focused more on process than customer service."

Pros: "The turkey sabdwhich was tasty. Good movies."
Cons: "Telling me the doors were going to close & I couldn't use the restroom prior to boarding. Here I was starving from flight delays. In reality the door stayed open another 15 mins & people boarded with their to go food."

Pros: "Had a great experience on my flight. All on time, and connections were great."

Cons: "Long delay"

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."

Cons: "On time"

Pros: "They offered water and snacks It was quick"

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: "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: "The Airbus A330 business class seating was more spacious and comfortable than the Boeing 767 I flew to Paris from ATL."

Pros: "Everything was smooth. Short flight, but they offered us refills on drinks, which I've never experienced before. Polite staff, great flight. Thanks!"

Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "The aisle between seats are too small. The carts and people can barely make it through. Aisle passengers always get bumped making it a long flight."

Pros: "Flight attendant warm, courteous and authoritative at same time."
Cons: "Seat hard. Space tight. I am 6’4”"

Cons: "Best airline! More space between seats. Great service. Great meals and snacks and overall excellent experience! I've travel a lot and no other airline in North America comes close! Thanks!!"

Pros: "Plane from Munich was late coming to Zagreb, so my flight was late because of that and was about to lose connection flight from Munich to Brussels. Then, Lufthansa drivers waited in Munich, put us in vans and drove us to plane for Brussels. Amazing service!."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Lufthansa is not a pioneer flying company as you think, everything comes from Germany is low quality especially service!!!"

Pros: "I was seated in Row 18 (comfort economy?) and my seat was relatively comfortable. The cabin was clean and pleasant. The crew was friendly, efficient, and professional."
Cons: "My family was seated in the economy section and their seats were extremely uncomfortable. I had the pasta dish for dinner and it was mushy to the point of being inedible."

Pros: "Loved the food and drink service."
Cons: "Did not like how far back the seat in front of me went. Causes a cramped ride."

Pros: "Crew very nice"
Cons: "Connecting flight time was half hour and at other side if airport- not fun at all. Barely made flight home"

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: "Cabin crew was extremely friendly, welcoming, and provided good inflight service."
Cons: "The boarding was very chaotic. Very few institutions or announcements made by ground crew. Passengers weren’t sure where to queue being that there were multiple gates for the A380-800 and were left asking each other and comparing boarding passes. Little to no air circulation in economy."

Pros: "Service efficiency."

Cons: "It was one hour late leavinh"

Pros: "Crew and flight and service were fine"
Cons: "Economy seats are cramped"

Pros: "Everything was well organized and smooth"

Pros: "Flight out was delayed by four and a half hours, missed connection was a pain. Was not aware that Lufthansa changed their policy. To reserve seats you have to pay hundreds of dollars, which was not made clear while booking. Further the quality of their food was significantly degraded."

Pros: "First class was amazing."

Pros: "The good organization and the friendly atmosphere."
Cons: "The bad movies."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Horrible experience. Stranded for 3 hours inside stationary flight, 4 hours in a long queue. Very very poorly managed. I slept on a chair in the cold weather. Atleast make arrangements for bad situations, apparently I was booked on another flight but they made me stand in a 4 hour long queue to find that out. Kiosk outside showed I was put in no flight. One of my worst experiences and rest assured if I’m given a chance I will never choose Lufthansa again."

Pros: "Flight on time"

Cons: "Plane closed the gate two hours before departing. Should have waited for passengers delayed by weather and lack of a sufficient ground crew."

Pros: "The movie selection"
Cons: "They ran out of food- I didn’t have dinner on that flight. We were almost 2 hours late to Dubai. I was irritated to say the least."

Pros: "The crew was kind and helpful and the movie selections, food, and seats were all great."

Cons: "LATE!! This is rediculous for a flight company not to be able to board on time so I miss my connection and get stuck for 6 hours"

Pros: "Staff is especially nice and efficient. Food and drinks very good"

Pros: "Made tight connection. Slept entire trip"

Pros: "The flights were lovely, the food was very good (for airline food), the drinks were generous - even the cheap seats were offered wine or cocktails! And after dinner were served coffee with Bailey's or cognac. Hot towels were provided. I would seek out a Lufthansa flight again."
Cons: "It was very difficult to click into any movies, etc. That needs to be looked into. I spent a ridiculous amount just trying to get into a movie."

Pros: "Was no flight"

Pros: "Excellent service. Everybody from the crew up had smile. Very good atmosphere. I would definitely fly with up guts again"
Cons: "I'm 6'2 230 seat was tight for me but that is it"

Cons: "Food was carb heavy. I wish you would offer more protein and vegetable choices."

Pros: "Efficient boarding. On time departure."

Pros: "The service was great and it was fast. Nothing super special about the airline"

Pros: "I am 6'1 so I wish could have afforded 1st class, but I am grateful to the desk staff who made sure I was as comfortable as possible. Great movies. Good food."
Cons: "The tightness of the seats!"

Pros: "Everything on time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Flight was an hour and a half late!"

Cons: "I booked through Kiwi.com and they couldn't handle my special food request (kosher meal). Somehow it didn't reach Lufthanza at all. As a result I had nothing to eat during the entire transatlantic flight."

Pros: "everything excellent overall"
Cons: "I didn't like the service in the moroccan airport form the security and also the crew at the check in, they are very bad"

Cons: "obvious crew disapproval when walking up and down the aisles to keep lively one year old entertained and from crying!"

Pros: "Boarding and flight was on time"
Cons: "Seats and comfort was heavily compromised in economy class"

Pros: "everything was easy to use and set up from booking to landing. wonderful trip. This was my 1st big trip and 2nd time on a plane. Liked the movies on the plane. All the staff where helpful from gate to gate."

Cons: "the waiting before the boarding, the Frankfurt airport gate for telaviv is different from the other gates, no store, no drinking water except one small counter that sell water and other food in very high prices, I except to have at least free water in the gate, excepsialy when we wait their more than hour an half"

Pros: "Lufthansa is my favorite airline. The service is impeccable, good food, great entertainment and as comfortable as international flights can be in economy class."

Pros: "Cabin Crew was very pleasant and supportive of families with children"
Cons: "The seats are designed for individuals who weight less than 100 lbs and no taller than 5'5". Granted, this was an economy seat. However, I should be able to sit in a seat without the seat in front of me literally 6 inches away from my face. I have traveled internationally countless times, but never have experienced such an uncomfortable flight. I will never fly with Lufthansa internationally again.not because of the crew, because their head office insists on squeezing every inch out of their planes without regard for passenger comfort."

Pros: "Flight from Marseille was delayed. Very tight connection time to make the SFO leg of the trip (30 minutes). A Lufthansa representative met us at the gate along with another passenger and took us via van to passport control and then to a terminal far away from the one we landed. She was courteous and efficient. We get to the gate in time to board."
Cons: "My seat was in row 56, second to last row. The temperature was very cold. I asked a flight attendant to make it a warmer. They tried but to no avail. The flight attendant mentioned that aircraft model (now 15 years old) has had that problem that has never been resolved. Solution was wearing a hat and several blankets. Not good for a 12 hour flight."

Cons: "We were told by the Delta baggage handler that they strike one day each quarter. This would have been helpful information before we booked our flight from Kayak. We had to delay our honeymoon by 12 hours and fly into a different airport. Delta was great though and the Luthanza agent who rescheduled us was also great."

Pros: "Food was good, boarding was easy, transfer in Munich very manageable"
Cons: "The seats are unusually narrow and there is no place to put your book and iPad in the seat pocket in front of you. Also, very unremarkable service"

Pros: "Thankfully the departure gate was directly on the other side of passport control in Frankfurt. The flight was perfect and smooth, although after boarding we had to sit on the runway for awhile, and left late. The crew were highly attentive, helpful, polite, and kept water and juice circulating between hot meals. I enjoyed the movies I was able to watch and my seat was comfortable. Excellent service in Economy Class!!"
Cons: "At times I felt too cold, despite the blanket."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "The food was awful"

Pros: "Overall a nice and good flight"
Cons: "Just a detail, my “head holder” (not too sure how it is called) would not hold in position. Also, staff was a bit slow to come after being called, I had to go and ask for water by myself at some point since no one was coming after 15minites of waiting..."

Pros: "Crew good and seat OK but not exceptional for business class"
Cons: "Food was average - main course could have been better. Range of movies ok but not great"

Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."
Cons: "Follow your own policies. Allow people to board (economy plus) with their hand luggage who have followed all the rules and chosen a seat in the front of the plane. My daughter and my KLM approved baggage were taken by the boarding crew while allowing other passengers to go with more than allowed"

Cons: "Half the screens were not working - crew were made aware but nothing was done. Vegetarian choices were poor to non-existent ; I witnessed crew insist to a passenger that there were no vegetarian options! They finally cobbled something together for him but not a pleasant experience"

Pros: "Crew was nice and pleasant"
Cons: "Flight very late"

Pros: "Onboard crew were nice and polite. Flight was on time (a rarity)."
Cons: "The boarding crew was rude and unpleasant, the plane was boiling hot."

Pros: "Crew helpful. Food good."
Cons: "Better range of movies please"

Pros: "Crew was very engaging and service was good."
Cons: "My seat was horrible. Right at the door, crammed, and no place to store my carry-on luggage."

Pros: "Checkin 1a at Schiphol had long lines, and no seperate counters for just bag drop. My family and I had to wait for 50 mins, to do a bag drop which in,y lasted 1 min! Flight was delayed, without proper announcements."
Cons: "Seat pitch could've been more. At least let us know via Whatsapp that the plane is delayed, or at which belt the bags would come out. This basic info was lacking."

Pros: "Amazing services .. on time just exactly .. I feel really happy onboard KLM ❤️"

Pros: "Overall KLM experience is good"
Cons: "Food quality was mediocre for a business class flight."

Pros: "The flight arrived a few minutes early."
Cons: "The plane was extremely old and in poor repair. The seats were extremely close together. The inflight entertainment system, wifi and passenger electric outlets were all non-functional. Even the wastebin in the lavatory was full and an extra bag was put on the floor."

Pros: "Time was excellent even considering a connection delay they had. Very polite crew members. Good entertainment options."
Cons: "Cabin was crowded. Leg room was scarce, short seating space. Almost no room for sleeping if you're not a frequent economy traveler."

Pros: "Economy comfort was very nice, food decent, plenty of toilets to avoid overcrowding, and good entertainment selection."

Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "Service was poor, seat did not recline, and the food was terrible."

Pros: "Boarding agent extra effort to improve my seating!"
Cons: "Food amount less than expected."

Cons: "Landlords gave an unpleasant service! Which continued with late of 50min of the flight, they didn’t do anything to help/ to provide the passengers the answers. The food was cold It was comfort place to sit. Bad experience with KLM"

Pros: "Nice people and good service"
Cons: "Not much"

Pros: "The staff tried to help me when it was evident we would not arrive on time"
Cons: "The connecting flight is too short of a time. We were late out of LAX and I missed my connection and had to sit in airport for 5 hours. Missed my grandson’s third birthday party. Just made me sad as Travelled from far to try to make it."

Pros: "The flight was perfect! Great food,movies and I even got to sleep !"
Cons: "All was well!"

Pros: "punctuality of boarding and flight time"
Cons: "attitude of crew in business class: no sense of true hospitality"

Pros: "Easy flight; loved the crew and their friendly customer service. Great food, kept everyone hydrated and fed."
Cons: "The movie options, as well as music and TV options were limited. There were no electrical outlets."

Pros: "The flight to Gdansk took off and arrived on-time and the staff were professional."
Cons: "The flight to Amsterdam from Gdansk was late and I had to RUN to the connecting gate. 50 minutes is NOT ENOUGH time to go through passport control."

Pros: "Comfort was better than on the previous Dash-8. Food was OK."
Cons: "Despised the cold temperature and cold draft in world business even with all vents shut off...gave me a head cold. Boarding was disorganized. There was no sense of direction; ergo, everyone was jumping in."

Cons: "KLM lost my luggage during the layover. My luggage didn't arrive even after the next flight to Prague. Customer service wouldn't give me any idea what flight my luggage would arrive on, nor would they tell me what time my luggage might be delivered to me."

Pros: "Able to fly direct to ansterdam"
Cons: "Have to lay over on the way back. More expensive than other airlines."

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: "Premium economy service was good."
Cons: "Inexplicably, our preassigned seats were changed at checkin and we were put in bulkhead. This particular Boeing aircraft is pretty poorly designed. Especially the bulkhead in premium economy."

Pros: "The flight was very good, specially considering it was a daylight one. Staff was friendly and servicial. Tue food was above the industry's average."

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: "Crew was friendly..business class seat was very comfortable and seemed wider than most Nice power outlets great entertainment system"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"

Pros: "Great crew service. Among the best ever."

Pros: "That we didn't crash"
Cons: "Being delayed and missing my connecting flight. No entertainment onboard (for hours and hours)."

Pros: "Jet airways flight till mumbai"
Cons: "Poor legspace in Klm flight till Amsterdam"

Pros: "The staff were friendly and all smiles. Seats were comfortable and we had a quick, smooth flight from Edinburgh to Amsterdam. The breakfast supplied was an egg and mayonnaise sandwich plus a drink, which seemed about right and very Dutch in character."
Cons: "It was rainy and necessary to walk outside to access the plane; the staff should give their customers a heads-up so that jackets can be donned. Additionally, the check-in queue seemed rather sluggish."

Pros: "The constant supply of food that was offered to you. The crew was nice and always helpful."
Cons: "The process of boarding in Amsterdam was not organized and felt more stressful than it needed to be."

Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliability."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."

Pros: "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."

Cons: "Horrible. First, we lost a suitcase. It could happen but for two days they did nothing and only told us stories (so as not to use the word lies). Within a few hours (and thanks to airline assistance) we were able to locate the suitcase. Even then it took them two days to bring it to us, two precious days off our planned vacation (7 days) At the end of the shortened vacation, we got to the chek in, and told that since the ticket I had purchased form them two months earlier was too cheap ... and since the flight was Over booked, they would take me off the plane if all the passengers would arrive. It's unnecessary to describe what I felt until the plane took off. They apologize constantly, but do nothing practical. a bae company. no me nor my freinds/family will go with KLM"

Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and professional. toilets were very clean adequate overhead space"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats in Economy Comfort. Legroom and recline were OK but the seats were extremely narrow. No evening meal and breakfast was minimal"

Pros: "delayed"

Pros: "We love the flight all the way"

Pros: "Flight was delayed by over three hours."

Pros: "--"
Cons: "One and a half hour delay on a 50 minute flight. Flight was operated by Cityjet on behalf of KLM. Never have I seen such bad customer service: from rude people at the bagage drop off to incompetent hostesses at the boarding gate."

Pros: "crew"
Cons: "food"

Pros: "Excellent crew made this flight very enjoyable. A lot of information during the flight about the route, arrival times and clear explanation of the departure delay. Very friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Only 1 drinks round on a 3h flight."

Pros: "There's almost no padding to them and they're very narrow. I know it's nothing new but I'll keep complaining until something changes, if ever."
Cons: "The crew was wonderful, the food was extremely good for economy cabin standards."

Pros: "Nice new Boeing 787, lots of space."
Cons: "Seat could use a bit more cushion, a bit thin for a long haul service. Also, had to take a bus to the aircraft which slowed the boarding."

Cons: "Why is there no rating for on-time delivery? After my super-late departure from PDX to AMS (computer outage), I essentially had the same problem on my return flight. KLM's Birmingham to Amsterdam flight departed so late that I again missed my Amsterdam connection."

Cons: "More legroom please"

Pros: "The BA crew couldn’t be more excellent! They were friendly and courteous from the moment we stepped onboard the plane and maintained a professionalism all throughout the flight. Kudos once again to British Airways for the consistent service you provide over the years!"

Pros: "The crew was great and food very good"
Cons: "The purchase through a third party vendor on Kayak was a disaster. disclosure was not given about class of service purchased and limitations of that class of service. I spent so much on luggage costs and change fees I could have purchased first class. I will never book through Kayak again - will always go straight to the airline for purchase. This was a disaster."

Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Everything was fine"

Cons: "Maybe not BA fault but immigration wait at jfk was 11/2 hours!"

Pros: "Comfortable seats and did not have to pay extra for a carryon luggage"
Cons: "The boarding process was quite chaotic and slow. There was no oversight of what people were putting in the overhead compartment so many were putting both their carryon suitcase and under seat bags up there leaving no room for our suitcases by the time we boarded. The flight attendants were eventually helpful in finding space by making people remove smaller items, but it was time consuming and avoided on most airlines we typically fly by enforcing bag rules as passengers are boarding."

Cons: "The 60 euro bagage fee for just checking 1 bag was excessive. There was no obvious way to pay on line or with the app"

Cons: "Flight left late from London."

Cons: "Only one round of drinks served?"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Crews service"

Cons: "Once again BA lost my luggage from my connecting flight. Twice in a week and a half."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "On time depature"
Cons: "Little amount of snacks available Small quantity of food for the meal"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly. Lots of movie options. I got a voucher due to the delay."
Cons: "The delay was a bit of a bummer and it would have been nice to be compensated with more than a voucher that couldn't be used in LHR because it was in USD. I also would have liked to been told they were still planning on serving dinner despite the midnight departure; I fell asleep because they turned off the cabin lights and I assumed the meals had shifted, but instead I missed out of my dinner. Lastly, I am quite petite and still struggled with legroom."

Pros: "Crew was great. Accommodating and welcoming."
Cons: "Food quality could have been better. Snack was very poor before landing."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient"
Cons: "No free food or drinks"

Cons: "Flight delayed"

Cons: "Flight was canceled forcing us to spend an extra night in Paris. British Airways was extremely unorganized in dealing with an 11 hour delay. I will not fly BA ever again."

Pros: "Check in and crew were very nice"
Cons: "Baggage was slow But everything was fine Pilot kept us informed"

Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "The seats are not too comfortable"

Cons: "We where not able to take the fligth's due to a passport issue, according to Netherlands rules my passport should be valid 90 days before entering the country and my expired July 29, 2018, when i booked no one advised me of such rules. I'm trying to contact Brittish Airways to see if I can be refunded."

Cons: "Very old entertainment system."

Cons: "The layover in London was too short and we missed the follow-on flight due to the flight getting into London late and BA not getting us through the terminal rapidly."

Pros: "Comfortable seats (Upgraded) Food was good quality and tasty Good entertainment selection"
Cons: "Did not transfer our suitcases on-time to the connecting flight, and we had to go back to the destination airport the next day! Crew during the long flight from LA to London never, not even once, brought beverages or water in between meals! They made sure to do minimum that is necessary! That's a shame BA I flew with United few months back from Washington to Munich and crew were amazing and went above and beyond to serve passengers"

Pros: "That it's non-stop"
Cons: "Except for the snacks, the food was barely edible."

Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Small plqne"

Pros: "Food was nice"
Cons: "Poor screen quality, ok selection of movies compared to other airlines, poor selection of audio"

Pros: "Nice new plane, great staff, decent comfort"
Cons: "Boarding was slow - also such a fuss made about the difference of services in each class -"

Pros: "On time departure."
Cons: "Long wait at check-in counters. Need more available counters/agents."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "The crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Since it was British Air, we would have had to pay $800 total to get seat assignments in advance. Because I refused to pay this exorbitant amount, my wife and I got whatever seats were leftover as assigned by BA's computer. As it was, there computer was all screwed up and we couldn't see our seat assignments or check in online and had to do that at the airport. Others reported getting tangled up with BA's computer system."

Cons: "My suitcase got stuck in London, now I have to chase it..."

Pros: "great team. good snacks. great room."

Pros: "Friendly crew; okay food and nice movies. Security screening went fairly quick. No abnormal long lines."

Pros: "Arrived 30 minutes late after problem at gate with the Jetway not retracting. Ground staff were pleasant. In-flight staff were friendly and helpful. Food was okay."
Cons: "Having to pay to select your seats is bargain carrier behavior. My family of four had to pay nearly $400 extra to select our seats in advance instead of having them assigned to selecting them the day of the flight. Seats were cramped and not too comfortable. I flew Air France on a previous trip to Europe and it was much more comfortable seating. The in-flight entertainment system kept freezing up and had to be reset multiple times. The touch screen (which is the method of navigation through the system) did not work. On a 5 hour flight that would be an inconvenience - on an 11 hour flight it is a bit more of a problem."

Pros: "British Airways lounges at Newark and London were good places to relax and have decent food and drinks selections."
Cons: "British Airways in-air entertainment and food options in aconomy leave much to be desired."

Pros: "On Time"
Cons: "Seat Spacing Boarding and check-in was unnecessarily long"

Pros: "The flight to NO was good. Service was good as well."
Cons: "The seating was much more cramped than the flight to Ireland. Very tight quarters for a 10 hour flight. Other than that, it was good. We arrived safely and that's the best feeling ever!"

Pros: "A great crew member or more can make a flight so much better."
Cons: "Update your entertainment systems. Head jack was broken and system old."

Pros: "Both of my flights had no person in the middle seat, so I was able to spread out more in the space which made it much easier to get some sleep, especially on my red eye flight!"
Cons: "No complaints; great service! I'd definitely fly British airways again."

Cons: "I thought I was supposed to get a free meal and was never offered that or even a complimentary beverage. The flight attendants allowed a group of four passenger to stand during almost the entire flight in the aisles and in my row, making it difficult for people to get around them and didn't allow for an enjoyable flying experience."

Pros: "Nothing to talk about. Entertainment had many choices"
Cons: "Food was pathetic"

Pros: "The airbus 320 was clean and well maintained"

Pros: "Quick and a clean aircraft"
Cons: "Nothing special to say"

Pros: "Finally an airline whose pilot keeps passengers informed of reasons for delays with frequent updates."
Cons: "You are now charging for water? Really?"

Cons: "The diabetic meals lacked variety and there was no choice. I was given a chicken dish with potatoes and mushrooms for the first meal and then given another chicken dish with rice for the second . Unlike other passengers I was not offered a choice. Both meal had a high carbohydrate load as they came with a separate bread bun . The first meal had peaches for dessert but my second meal offering had no substitute for the cake given to other passengers. The snack box contained sweet and salty popcorn,salted crisps and malteasers which are to be avoided by diabetics . Overall my dietary needs were poorly serviced by BA on this flight."

Pros: "The crew and entertainment were great."
Cons: "The amount of legroom provided for an 8.5hr international flight was far too little."

Pros: "The pilot communjcated very well and was able to keep passengers calm during the heavy turbulence."
Cons: "I was only allowed ONE free bag for an international flight??? Totally unheard of. This was my first time flying BA and it will certainly be my last. For a 12hr flight, we were only fed ONCE! And only had very old movies to watch"

Pros: "Crew was attentive and polite."
Cons: "When the person in front of you lowers his seat 5 minutes after takeoff and keeps it down the whole flight, it makes it hard to eat and really uncomfortable. I have a LOT of miles (avieos or whatever they call them) but never get offered an upgrade to economy plus like I do on other airlines."

Cons: "We reserved for passenger in Business class From Dubai to London to Dubai . But From London to Dubai BA offered passenger Economy class the passenger reserved business class but they put him in Economy and the reason they said the flight is over booked. The passenger has heart problem and knee problem we reserved for him in business class to assure he will get the maximum care but in despite of his health conditions and in despite that he reserved in business class they put him in economy class"

Cons: "Delay killed my travel plans and resulted in a nine hour layover in Munich Germany!"

Pros: "The boarding was quick, the flight was uneventful"
Cons: "The flight attendants could be friendlier and smile more"

Pros: "Free snacks"
Cons: "Not a lot of foot room"

Cons: "Flight delayed three hours because of malfunctioning fuel valve . United needs to figure out how do identify the problem I had of time to allow more time to fix"

Pros: "Service was friendly. Food ok. Entertainment acceptable for long flight."
Cons: "There is More Variety of entertainment on Delta and American Airlines but otherwise comparable."

Pros: "My flight was delayed where I would have missed my connection, customer service rebooked on another flight which got me to my final destination early. The upgrades and consistent service is handled very well."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and service was good, which is rare in United!"
Cons: "The dinner was paasable but the breakfast was horrible. Stale croissant. No butter."

Pros: "Nice Airplane and good experience on United Domestic flights. International is another story! It seems many of the senior flight attendants think the passengers are there to serve them vs. the reverse."
Cons: "No complaints about domestic flights. United gets good marks here."

Cons: "Both flights were delayed, and was charged a $200 oversized baggage fee for a bag that actually isn't oversized according to the measurements on the United website"

Cons: "Comfort , service,..terrible!"

Pros: "Economy Plus works well"
Cons: "United new seats are uncomfortable"

Cons: "I don't have a tablet to watch movies on. The entertainment didn't accommodateven me."

Cons: "Seats are too small no leg room"

Pros: "After all these years, still love United!"
Cons: "Loved everything!"

Pros: "LOVE the plane! CLEAN!! New and BEAUTIFUL!!!!"
Cons: "Sat and listened the WHOLE trip except when drinks were being served to the private lives of the flight attendants. The didn't pick up trash so everyone had to place their ice and semi full drinks in the nets when it got bumpy for the landing. I watched the flight attendants the whole time- they got paid to converse about everything- here is proof- one flight attendant was complaining that she only had 4 days of vacation and that she never gets called to work- I think I can guess why- and that she has talked to Kaitlyn- I think that was her bosses name?? But she wasn't given more hours. I wish I had ear plugs. The African American lady was so unkind and uncaring. She scollded another African American lady for coming to the back to throw away her trash. She hurt the lady's feelings and made her mad too. The folks on the plane seemed to be too much of a deflection to their personal conversations, but they were successful at ignoring everyone. We had to be careful to not spill liquid on our carry on etc and not hit the cups and such with our knees on the way out. I usually fly Southwest and want to write a letter telling them how great their service is! I apologized to the cleaning crew as the flight attendants told us to not worry about our drinks"the cleaning crew" will get it. How unprofessional to treat others that way. Stop talking! You can get A WHOLE lot done when you aren't sharing your personal life and opinions with each other!"

Cons: "Gate was changed.. Delayed one hour"

Pros: "It didn't crash"
Cons: "two hours late without any reason given, and forced to check my bag on the prior flight to the final destination meaning I can't get it at gate side. Numerous flights to Cedar Rapids through United have been canceled or delayed without any explanation - I don't have faith in United anymore and will not book with them again."

Pros: "The snack boxes are very good. The on flight crew were excellent. The gate crew - not so much."
Cons: "Row 32- seats don't recline. I requested to be sat with my children at booking - we were in different rows 3 of the 4 legs. My TV wouldn't accept cc payment."

Cons: "Having to board and put away carry on thinking the flight will depart soon and then finding out within 15 mins when everyone have boarded and settle that the maintenance delay requires that everyone must evacuate the plane with their carry on luggages. We waited at the gate for nearly 2 hours because the flight clerk told us not to roam far due to continuous updates... It started out as a 30 min delay and ended as a 2 hour delay with gate and plane changes. Had we known it was a 2 hr delay we would have been able to go use the restroom and go eat in between without worrying that the flight will depart."

Pros: "The seats were large and comfortable"
Cons: "I had to ask to get a drink, and was never offered food. Granted it was a red eye, but I was never even offered a cookie. I expected more after paying for first class. Plus, since it was an older plane, it didn't have the power ports they advertise. The guy sitting next to me didn't want to watch tv, but it didnt work and the screen wouldn't go off. They didn't offer him anything as a apology."

Pros: "They still offer drinks. It was a short flight, so all the bad things didn't have to be endured for as long."
Cons: "Every time I fly United, I realize they shrank the seat size, again. Oh, and the flight attendant spilled my drink on me. Only said, "sorry, buddy" and then got me a couple of napkins... Was friendly other than that, though. O.o"

Pros: "Great flight attendants on flight itself."
Cons: "Ridiculous price of flight from OC to SFO, the $200 cancellation fee when cancellation was medically related & notification was over 24hrs. 45minute flight delay."

Pros: "Flight crew was great. Easy, quick boarding."
Cons: "$25 for the first checked bag is a ripoff."

Pros: "Both flights arrived early."

Cons: "Wifi on the first flight was great, unable to view any entertainment on the connecting flight"

Pros: "The price...for once, a weekend to SF was reasonable!"

Pros: "No problems."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "On time comfortable seat."
Cons: "Everything was fine"

Pros: "no delays. quick flight & boarding"

Cons: "We had to land in San Antonio due to bad weather (understandable), but the customer service was appalling. They kept passengers on the plane for 3 hours and 45 minutes, which is prohibited by federa law. They failed to provide additional snacks when the passengers were on the plane for over 7.5 hours, and made it seem like it was such a nuisance when we asked for water. They were able to pass out one cookie by hour 6 but the flight attendant made it VERY clear that they had to do "so much paperwork" to get it approved. The flight attendants were rude, inconsiderate, and when asked what the game plan was after our 4 hour delay, their response was, ""not sure, not my department." If they didn't have answers, that's fine, but the manner and careless tone in which they replied was inconsiderate and insincere. When we finally landed at our half way destination in Houston, the flight attendant made a comment about how she can't get home due to all of the delays without considering that half of the passengers had the same dilemma and paid hundreds of dollars for their flights! The flight attendant had no empathy or respect and I would NEVER take this airline again. We spent the night at the airport and are still trying to find a flight to our destinatiom in New York :("

Pros: "The plane was not full for most of the trip=more room. Flight was shirted than expected"
Cons: "Staff seemed stressed. It was hot! The temperature was lowered after many voiced discomfort. Entertainment very limited considering the length of the flight."

Pros: "Take off and landing was 15 mins ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Legroom on the plane was cramped."

Cons: "Gate crew had no interest in helping with layovers affected by flight delay."

Cons: "The snacks where gross."

Cons: "Waiting in S.F. for flight to board. Crew announces flight will be 1 hour and ten minutes late. A few minutes later, announces the pilot is on his way and may be a half an hour late. The gate number was not announced until about a half an hour before boarding. We finally boarded and was told that co-pilot was not at airport. It was a terrible experience with United."

Pros: "There was not enough room for my legs."

Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "What happened to the 1960s concept of stewerdess?"

Pros: "The flight crew was nice"
Cons: "The flights landing was a fast decent"

Pros: "She saw me boarding with two small kids and came right up with snacks and juice! Much appreciated. Also I really like that you do pre-boarding again for families with young ones. Thank you."
Cons: "Food. You said you have wifi but I was never able to connect. Don't understand."

Pros: "II like the speed of the overall flight. The group was boarded promptly and we leave right one time. Everything was efficient and done in a quick and timely manner."
Cons: "There's no entertainment in the plane whatsoever, but it's understandle. Flights for United are generally cheaper than most so I don't expect anything fancy or entertaining."

Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived early. Not just this time but also the last four times I took this flight. That's what it's all about."

Pros: "informative and accurate why we could not take off on time"

Pros: "Early arrival is always good. The crew was pleasant and professional."
Cons: "The seats are too crowded and the $95 charge for an upgraded seat is too high."

Pros: "I want to thank United for taking excellent care with my mobility issues (broken ankle). From changing the seats to provide wheelchairs, made things much easier."
Cons: "I put food poor as there was no N/A...we did not get anything for the redeye flight."

Pros: "I appreciated the updates and prompt boarding with my flight. It was organized."
Cons: "The crew was very unprofessional. I was NOT offered any drinks and they raised their voices at me to straighten my chair. I guess they assumed I didn't speak or understand English. Don't expect much from them. I'm just glad I got from a to b."

Pros: "Never ever again. Delay after delay, maintenance issues and when you get to your destination, your bag for which you had to pay $25 looks like someone played soccer with."
Cons: "With all the fees I payed, my flight was very expensive. Don't fall for kayak or other sites deals. It's not a deal at all. If you live in Chicago area, fly southwest out of Midway. They'll get you to almost all destinations in US... always on time and no bag fees... plus you'll get a snack"

Pros: "Thank you."

Pros: "The staff were extremely nice"

Cons: "Delays on the Tarmac at both arrival and take off. I would have missed my connecting flight if it hadn't been cancelled anyway."

Pros: "Nothing. Pretty gross plane."
Cons: "Coffee spilled in my seat."
