Pros: "Flight attendants were very polite."
Cons: "The seats could be more wide."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful. Entertainment very good."
Cons: "I don't understand how this company has a high rating in service. We missed our connection because the plane was delayed and they treated us poorly. How can you have a complimentary lounge for people missing their flight but not allow people in. I guess because we were only economy. When asked could we pay for an upgrade to business class, the attendant responded with "oh, its expensive" I didn't ask how much, I asked if we could. I never felt so insulted. The food was terrible. By the time they got to us, our food was cold and they ran out of the menu item we wanted. I have no intention of flying Qatar again. I will stick with Emirates"

Pros: "Flight was 80% empty, but it was amazing anyway, slept through most of it"
Cons: "Staff constantly woke me up for snacks and drinks, which is good on one hand but I was sleeping so deep that it was a bit annoying."
Pros: "Too tired after almost 24 hours traveling. No complaints."
Pros: "Stuff is Fantastic, food is delicious, a lot of leg room, got to love Qatar Airways. No wonder they’re number one."
Pros: "Nice flight. Good service but it seems women dont get service men do. Ie my wife."
Cons: "Screening was arduous. Line for business class check in at counter was chaotic with no sense of order. A real mess. took over a half an hour and agents were processing coach passengers randomly and seemed oblivious to business class passengers who paid a significant price for the tickets."

Cons: "The plane from Doha to Dar was infinitely less nice than the plane from New York to Doha. It was borderline offensively unequal."
Cons: "Haven't made it yet due to schedule change. 12 hour wait in airport."
Pros: "There is a reason Qatar was ranked the best airlines last year. From service that was above and beyond, whether on the plane or in the airport and lounges. The nicest and most attentive people. Outstanding menus and comfort on the plane."
Pros: "Clean airplane"
Cons: "On a 16 hour journey, we only had 2 meals and no snacks. I usually fly Lufthansa. They provide 2 meals and a third snack (usually a pizza) and keep additional snacks and drinks fully stocked in the back of the plane. None of that existed on this flight. The crew was very uninterested. Seemed very absent and not into assisting patrons. Overall, not what I have experienced on prior Qatar Airways flights. To add insult to injury, I was sitting next to an EXTREMELY smelly person, which didn't make the experience any easier :( Not the airlines responsibility to ensure patrons exercise proper hygiene, but that didn't help the situation with my hungry growling stomach."
Pros: "great entertainment system friendly staff"
Cons: "very cramped flight, even when just partially full light food for an 8 hour flight"
Pros: "Flight attendants very nice"
Cons: "Boarding at JFK. PHONEY wheel chair users. Saw a woman with one leg who.REALLY needed one tough it out while others were just lazy. I saw them walking after wards. They just don't want to wait in.line. Handicapped should have wheelchairs but once they have them they should wait like everyone.else"
Pros: "great crew and food."
Cons: "being charged excess baggage when one suitcase weigh under weight. Having to wait at the terminal for a hour and a half because of bad weather -- not the pilot's fault"
Cons: "The website is not easy to navigate."
Pros: "Stewards were great"
Cons: "No complaints for this leg of the journey. Entertainment options were mediocre as all legs of my journey had the identical offerings and i pretty much watched all of it in my round trip almost 48 hours of total on plane time."
Pros: "Cabin crew including the ground staff were awesome in providing best of its class customer service. Food and entertainment onboard was really good."
Cons: "THere was no wifi"
Pros: "Flight was on time and departed as scheduled. Flight was comfortable and seats were decent. Would have liked a little bigger seats and more legroom in the economy seats"
Cons: "Food was not up to par and seats could have been a bit bigger for the economy bracket."
Pros: "The food was amazing. Thank you!"
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "I had to ask for everything. Crew members kept passing me by for food service and drink service even though I was awake. I had to tap/call them each time they passed by. It turned into a joke among me and the people sitting next to me. Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "Everything is good"
Cons: "Everything fine"
Pros: "First of all, I want to preface this by saying that virtually every airline is better than the major ones working in the US (American, United, and Delta), and Qatar Airways is amongst this number. The entertainment selection was excellent, the best of any flight I've ever been on. The flight attendants were excellent, again, much better than those on American carriers (I am American, FYI)."
Cons: "The food was terrible. Of course, we know this about airline food, BUT I have been on Qatar Airways flights with GOOD food in the past, so I know it can be better. Also, I sat in the baby section, which also happens to be where they put long-legged people. This is no one's fault, but suffice to say, do NOT sit next to 4 5-month olds for a 15-hr flight! Interestingly, since all flight attendants were women, about 50% of the flight did listen to them since there were many conservative Arabs onboard from Qatar or Saudi Arabia (i.e., those who are taught not to listen to or respect women). This made for some frustrating sites to witness but it's obviously not the airline's fault. Poor women!"
Pros: "Extremely like Qatar airways Both ground services and in flight service are excellent"
Cons: "Nothing . everything was fine."
Pros: "Boarding priority, on-board service priority and children oriented service. Biggest leg room in any economy flight. Best entertainment program (Onyx One). Genuinely friendly crew."
Pros: "Crew is very helpful and friendly. Camecthrough with drinks at good pace. Check in very smooth"
Cons: "Food - very mediocre and felt like each meal was similar"
Pros: "Boarding and Seat comfort was good"
Cons: "Food frequency for 16 hour flight was awfully inadequate. Food quantity in each service was not sufficient. Food quality ok. No intermittent beverage and snack service in 16 hour flight segment. Cabin baggage limit of 15 lb/7kg per bag is awfully inadequate that renders the standard cabin baggage useless"
Pros: "Food, service, staff at the counter"
Cons: "Cant think of any"
Pros: "It was the first time using Qatar Airways and I'll continue doing so in the future."
Cons: "Arrival in Johannesburg was a nightmare due to queues at immigration - I nearly missed my connecting flight."
Pros: "I loved the kind and friendly staff of Qatar airline. They were very organized and helpful. We missed our flight due to delays but they took great car of us and guided us through the process."
Cons: "They seats were too close. The person in front had his seat back and was practically in my lap. Annoying."
Pros: "Food is awesome and plentiful. Crew is great. Plentiful entertainment options."
Cons: "The economy seats are just not comfortable. The entertainment system is glitchy"
Pros: "Service of the inflight crew and food quality."
Cons: "Too short layover time in Doha. Had to run from one gate to another to make connection"
Cons: "I got the last meal. For dessert I was given a hard roll, no cheese, no packaged water, no feta salad. I was bumped and stepped on by the crew with no apology. Food i did get was barely eatable."
Pros: "No middle seats. Crew was nice. More space for people."
Cons: "The ceiling next to the spot lights or calling for help was dirty. I was expecting everything to be wiped. I turned my air fan on, and my there were some brown spots on my hands. And I looked up, it was dirty up there."
Pros: "The entertainer system was down all of the flight, could not charge my phone. Crew was polite but Curt."

Pros: "The crew really took care of us. You could tell they care."
Cons: "I wish the headphone jacks allowed standard headphones. I brought a nice set and didn't have an adapter. I used the ones they included which were ok, but not great."

Pros: "Service on tme"
Cons: "Small plan"
Pros: "Arrived safely"
Cons: "Crew arrived late from Buffalo (?!?!) so our 7:59 flight didn’t start boarding until very close to that time. That delay, as Delta well knows, dominoed into LGA’s ATC issues and resulted in an arrival at DCA well after our scheduled arrival."
Cons: "Bad information about delays"
Pros: "Timely, organized, polite staff and pilots. Delta gets 5 stars all around."
Cons: "WiFi wasn’t working but we were informed so not really a negative just an observation."
Pros: "All on time, the flight attendants were nice and polite."
Cons: "That I couldn't change my seat (I didn't want in the confort zone) just in an empty row that it was behind me."
Pros: "The plane had a ton of room."

Pros: "Seat was upgraded."
Cons: "Delayed for no reason"
Pros: "The plane was less than half full so I got my own row and slept most of the flight. Chargers and tv screens for each seat"
Pros: "Flight o time"
Pros: "The flight was on schedule"
Cons: "It was crowded and cramped."
Cons: "I was seated in first class, and due to some catering mix-up, no meal was served. I was given a banana and crackers which was very disappointing since I hadn't eaten in 8 hours and was starving. No on board entertainment whatsoever."
Cons: "No food was offered."
Pros: "The airlines: KLM and Delta were great."
Cons: "The lines at TSA! Alng with hundreds of other people, we missed our connecting flight. I was ashamed to see such an awful mess in the US. It was like entering a third world country run by incompetents."
Pros: "The crew and service were outstanding, seat was comfortable."
Pros: "On time great baggage retrieval"
Pros: "Delta is definitely the jewel of commercial airlines. I understand making money depends on how many bodies you can transport at one time. But as a large man the seat size and leg room could be improved. I unfortunately cant afford first class to remedy this problem."
Pros: "Service. Sweet attendant."
Cons: "Cancelled my flight then re-booked me for the next day; was able to then find a flight same day but 7 hours later. That then was delayed another 4 hours and I had to buy a rental car to drive home instead. Thus far they have been unresponsive in getting me a refund for my travel. Don't fly Delta."
Pros: "Pleasant crew, newer plane, and very efficient travel time"
Cons: "The boarding process was extremely slow, "Comfort Plus" seats in the smaller regional jet were definitely not worth the upgrade."
Cons: "The food was supposed to be hot chicken was served cold"
Pros: "Crew was polite"
Cons: "Rocky takeoff"
Cons: "Flight got delayed and I had to reschedule. The process of rescheduling was a mess and took too long"
Pros: "It's hard for me to write this review as the first 4.5 hour leg was incredible. Staff was very friendly and did a great job. Otherwise, the equipment was old and dated. Good thing it's only an hour-ish flight."
Cons: "Old plane, hard seats designed for humans less than 3 years old."
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment and crew"
Cons: "Boarding was way too long"
Cons: "Reasonable price"
Pros: "Plane was comfortable"
Cons: "In order to leave airport on time (plane came in late) they claimed overhead space was full and that remainder boarding passengers had to check their bags. (Bags to be picked up in baggage claim) When walked into plane saw plenty of overhead space for carryons!"
Pros: "The customer service of the gate attendants and flight crew was fantastic."
Cons: "The flight was significantly delayed (8 hours), but Delta did provide vouchers and cash reimbursements for missed activities. They definitely win for proactive customer service!"
Pros: "Crew made flight enjoyable. Lots of Starbucks coffee and food. Can use wifi for free to stream movies to iPad, which is much better quality in picture and sound than onboard video."
Cons: "Selection of movies to stream to device is fewer than what is available for onboard video."
Pros: "Good service for us... when it came to boarding and flying, the staff were great for us."
Cons: "However, one flight attendant was extremely rude in addressing a passenger who was not fluent in English. She was asking the passengers in the exit row if they were willing and able to help in the event of an emergency, and when he could not follow her (pretty quick) question, she grew very inpatient and just told him he needed to move to another seat if he didn't know English. She did not repeat her question or give him a chance to express himself. Before he could say anything else, another passenger volunteered to switch seats with him, so that matter was settled. But when another attendant asked what the commotion had been (the attendant had raised her voice a bit), she yelled across the plane that this man does not speak English, sounding very inpatient. I found it very rude, and although it did not happen to me, no amount of exasperation short of an emergency merits the response of that flight attendant. All the other flight attendants were polite though."
Pros: "Very helpful crew. Quick boarding process."
Cons: "Not much leg room, or space in seats."
Pros: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "The airport was good"
Cons: "There's could be a better customer service at the counter of the plan the Lufthansa worker that work at the front disck they was so rod and the travelers has a lot of issues with them and the way the talk to the travelers they was like we're kids or slave to them"
Cons: "The people sitting beside me was very loud and they didn’t stop talking the whole time."
Pros: "United airlines check in lady in Knoxville TN, She was efficient, caring and awesome. I also loved the air hostesses on Lufthansa flights, they found space for my bags on board and took care of me all flight long!"
Cons: "Lufthansa gate staff may be in need for a better attitude and not the one of a disgruntled child. I would have expected my 3 checked in bags to arrive with me in Cairo, they did not, so making sure the checked in bags arriving with the passengers can be an needed improvement!"
Cons: "Airline canceled my flight with out refund or giving other options. Never will use them again."
Pros: "On the airline website the price of the ticket was $3000 and I bought it for $750 on Kayak, I expected delays, cancellations or something to go wrong and justify that price drop. Nothing of that sort happened! It was a comfortable and on time trip with no problems!"
Pros: "Clean, drink and water service was good and much appreciated"
Cons: "Seats too close to each other, must have added a couple of rows. awful. Internet wouldn't work, Food is a sad excuse on a German airline."
Pros: "The service and crew was amazing! We splurged on Business class and it was worth it! I was impressed with their efficiency at every point: checking in, boarding, and in-flight service."
Cons: "Sleeping overnight the cabin got a bit warm which made it a bit uncomfortable. I’ve never had that problem on a flight before."
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Navigating very long distance between terminals. Terminal changes"
Pros: "Fast check in and politeness"
Cons: "Not comfortable seats"
Pros: "My previous flights with Lufthansa have been in business class, which is fabulous. However, on this occasion flew economy because I got an exceptionally cheap ticket. I was pleasantly surprised. Obviously the seat was narrower, but had plenty of legroom. The food in economy in Lufthansa is better than most airlines’ business class meals. The crew is very courteous and professional. You really can’t go wrong with this airline."
Cons: "There was no downside."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and professional"
Cons: "The seats were too cramped, no chance to sleep on an overnight flight. In fact my back was quite sore from being cramped in the seat with no leg room and no under seat room for a small backpack. I’m only 5’2”"
Cons: "Lufthansa warse company ever fly with . everything was bad . delay like two hours , food only meat because No enough chicken and No socks to warm my foot because I was feeling cold ."
Pros: "The attendents were very nice"
Cons: "It was a 4 hour flight with no entertainment"
Pros: "Nothing. Will never travel with airline in the future. Definitely will not recommend."
Cons: "Flights are delayed frequently which resulted in missing connection from Frankfurt to New York. On arrival, passengers are herded like animals from one point to the next with no explanation as to what resulted in the delay or given sufficient supplements for food etc."
Pros: "Always have been more than pleased with Lufthansa. Perfect experience. Sincere thanks go to all staff."
Cons: "Nothing. All perfect."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Waiting for long time in a crowded bus to NORAD the plane then rushing out of the bus to Nita the plane with no lines and having to wait for the crowds outside the lane in a freezing temperature. Furthermore, there was no entertainment on the plane and the food was horrible. Add to this the very cramped seat space and no carry ons in the plane (unless you speak German)"
Pros: "Overall, the main leg to Frankfurt was fine for entertainment and boarding; the staff was pleasant; but, the seats on all legs were ridiculously tight, and the planes were packed like sardines. I was stuck on window seats on 2 of 3 legs, despite requesting window seats, and the comfort on all legs was terrible. In future, I will take advantage of an upgrade offer from the Airline."
Cons: "Read previous comments on likes. In summary, the flight was too full, and the service for my seating was OK. That is it... OK."
Pros: "Crew was good and caring."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable and narrow compare to other airlines plane. There was no in flight entertainment available and that was ridiculous."
Cons: "No body helped me. My first flight got delayed and missed my connecting flight. People were rude and showed that they didn’t care. I had to wait 4 hours for the next flight. I received little compensation"
Cons: "No reason for the cancellation was given. I arrived in Cairo a day late for a 10 day tour I had already paid for which caused major problems for me. I will never fly Lufthansa again."
Pros: "Didn’t like absolutely nothing"
Cons: "We had to walk from gate z all the way to gate B carrying all the bags which was painful, the plane was very tight and old that I had to put all my carry on bags in the floor. I personally had to help the crew members to pick up the food trays because they were very limited and no entertainment at all which was really boring."
Pros: "Crew is very friendly, seats are extremely comfortable and good room overall, comfortable flight."
Cons: "Hi, To be honest, it was embarrassing to serve that dish on such a major airline. Chicken with bbq sauce and corn or something like that. Was distasteful I couldn’t take more than 2 small bites."
Pros: "Over crowded"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Good smooth flight, wine offered in economy. Crew wonderful"
Cons: "Fully booked, so a little crowded"
Cons: "I can't believe you fit in an additional row of seats between the exit doors and business class. Do you think your customers can be packed like sardines?"
Pros: "Frankfurt to Cairo boarding was in organized gate 61 toilet not cleane 90% of the phone chargers in Frankfurt airport not working"
Cons: "Lufthansa is a big name must do something for that"

Cons: "Nothing I didn't like"

Pros: "The crew was very nice and the food was good. Very uneventful, easy flight."
Cons: "Definitely not enough leg room"
Cons: "Dear sir or Madam, I’m writing this complaint as I feel so mistreated and so disrespected, I had a ticket# 2208688265549 with a confirmation# WP6DHB travelling from Tulsa , OK, USA to Cairo, Egypt. Everything was great as expected and recommended by my uncle who travels with your respected company at least twice a month till I got to Frankfort airport to take flight# 0582 from Frankfort to Cairo. I was stopped while heading to the plan by the flight manager as he called himself later, and told me that I have to only have one item on the plan, I already had one carry on and my hand bag that has my laptop and the charger, I told him that I was told by Lufthansa customer service the night before traveling to confirm the luggage weight and size that I’m allowed one carry on plus personal item like a hand bag or lap top bag and they have to meet specific dimensions. I even offered to call the customer service number for verification, he replied ‘’I don’t care, I’m the flight manager and you will do what I say’’. His words were really hurting, I showed him the tag on my carry on that I got from the previous flight it said (approved carry on) don’t remember exactly what it said, he reached to my carry on and tare that tag, I didn’t think that was appropriate even if the tag had no value he doesn’t have any right to touch my luggage without my approval, then he tried to grab my ticket from my hand saying I will get you off the flight, I got really upset and told him don’t touch my belongs. There was a moment of silence because I think I raised my voice (my apology to him and to the company for that), I realized that the conversation is not going any where so I decided to file a complaint (not because he wanted to me to only have one item but mostly because of his attitude) so I asked him for his employment ID number he walked away without saying anything, waited till he walked close enough that I can ask him again this time he refused to give me his employment ID number, asked him for his name he said it so softly, I asked him to spell because I didn’t hear it right he said it so softly he refused, then I had to look for his badge and the name on the badge I believe his first name started with P and last name started with T. I waited a few days till I got to talk to my uncle and told him what happened as he is the one who recommended Lufthansa and he has a lot of experience with your services he said that they might need to do that because the flight was complete and they want to offer luggage place for everybody, but what I surprising is there was many empty seats on the plan my seat was 032C and the 2 seats beside me (032A and 032B) were empty also there was a lot of carry-ons room everywhere. So I don’t know why he was this way with me, I’m really disappointed specially that is only my first flight with Lufthansa since 2015, that flight manager made me have an extremely rough experience. one more thing when I told him I’m going to compla"
Cons: "crew was not friendly"
Pros: "The most comfortable trip"
Pros: "Crew are very helpful, but some how looked unorganized"
Cons: "Complete unorganization during boarding. Not enough staff. Plane is small and no entertainment for a 4:30 out trip."
Cons: "Thisnisnthe locationwhere my luggage got stuck"
Pros: "The crew did a great job. It was a little slow to board and disembark but again I'm pretty sure it was the people."
Cons: "One of the crew members at the airport said I had to check my bag but a woman with a bigger bag went on the flight with out having to check her bag. The people flying to Cairo are horrible. Rude, disgusting, disorganized. Took forever to board and disembark the aircraft. If I didn't have to fly to Cairo for work I would never take this flight again in my life. Not much you can do as an airliner though, maybe just warn the tourists about the flight."
Pros: "Nothing. It was awful. Worst flight in years."
Cons: "Airport,business lounge, boarding process-they didn't know what was going on, business class seats we're nobody size seats, awful food-was supposed to be a hot breakfast but it was dinner instead, no entertainment, no tv screens, said they had wifi but they didn't. Nothing good about the flight. Crew was more concerned about keeping their curtain pulled than anything else."
Cons: "I could not get any information in Moscow until arriving at the airport."
Cons: "No screens at all and the boarding was messy"
Pros: "I liked it overall"
Cons: "I absolutely hated and was very surprised at the completely illogical step of making people who have connection flights wait. Lufthansa was the one that scheduled two of my flights so close together, not letting people with connection flights to un-board first is completely counterproductive. Most other airlines let people with connecting flights unboard first."
Cons: "Was not poker game :("
Cons: "No any form of inflight entertainment Uncomfortable chairs Food was below average I had to ask 3 times for a glass of water"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Not loose my luggage:)"
Pros: "Good aircraft, good service, on time, eventless"
Cons: "There are two types of foot-rests, both are a nuisance for people with long legs. The one popping up from below one's seat is extremely hard to put back in place. The metallic one folding down from under the seat in front cannot be secured back and is always in the way if the passenger needs to stretch his/her legs. This seems to be a new appliance, and I jut wish they would do away with it altogether. More is not necessarily better."
Cons: "I was almost forced to stow my luggage in the hold despite me telling the check-in people tjat I had my meds and cpap in the carryon. I spoke to multiple people. Not sensitive."
Cons: "Boarding (by bus) was a total chaos. I had to stand for about 50 minutes, either on the crowded bus or, after climbing with great difficulty three flights of stairs to a high jet-bridge (I am 76), standing there forever with 200 persons waiting to get access to the plane. Totally unacceptable. They started the boarding process early (50 minutes before departure), but passengers were allowed to actually board the plane at the time it was supposed to take off."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "Seats were too close together."
Cons: "New variety of food"
Pros: "Amasing crew"
Cons: "Kayak updated me that my flight would be late. It wasn't. Missed it had to pay $700"
Pros: "Crew was attentive. Timings were spot on."
Cons: "Virtually no information at boarding which made everybody just make a huge line. Boarding they a bus, it was raining and we got wet."
Cons: "They made me check my carryon rolly which is allowed on every other plane in the world, which meant going all the way back into a chaos of hundreds of people to check in. Because I had a connecting flight to New York in London, the check in caused many problems...and everything inside soaking wet"
Pros: "I like the comfortable seats"
Cons: "Service lag a little"
Cons: "Departure time was almost 2 hours late and the communication of the cabin crew regarding this issue was poor. Almost an hour went by without an update."

Cons: "shuttle from terminal to plane takes a long time. Flight left late"
Cons: "Departure delayed, reschedules and then cancelled without any direct notification to us with 2 first class tickets !! If we didn’t have Kayak we would be sitting in the airport !,,"
Pros: "Flight attendant Ms. Sophie Picard made every extra effort to try to find a meal when they had run out of Business Class meals. She made up for the uncomfortable seating in Business Class."
Cons: "Business class seating on the AirBus 318 is very cramped."
Pros: "Efficient and smooth flight. Service was great and flight attendants were friendly"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed so we could not make out connecting flight. We had to wait 6 hours get another flight to Atlanta and then fly to Boston the next day, longest flight ever was horrible I called out sick from work too."
Pros: "Very quiet"
Cons: "We were in the last few rows on a turbulent route. The yaw damper constantly overcorrected, resulting in lots of side to side motion for the passengers"
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "Food has improved a lot on business class. Meals are more creative."

Pros: "Nice staff, very professional and helpful."
Pros: "Only the cabin crew was good."
Cons: "It was the worst flight that I ever had, the seats are extremely uncomfortable, no TV, the food was terrible."
Pros: "Service was great, flight was on time and I really enjoyed everything"
Cons: "Little turbulence but overall it comes as usual so it was worth the flight"
Cons: "Its been a week. My trip has ended. I still do not have my bags. Terrible customer service."
Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "Very cramped. Poor leg room also with.metal bars under seats that further. Limited foot room. Terrible options in movies. The seats in front of us reclined so far that I couldn’t do anything but stare at the back of the seat anyway."
Pros: "Todo muy bien Volvería a viajar con ellos."
Pros: "Cabin crew very friendly and caring."
Cons: "Airport services and lounge are OK."

Cons: "Paying for carry on due to weight limit. First time this ever happened!"
Cons: "They lost my luggage"
Pros: "All crew I interacted with was great, friendly, and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was late. Boarding very slow. Entertainment was ok by today's standards. Each seat had a display, but movie selection was not great. For a French airline I was looking forward to breakfast -- maybe some nice pastries or at least a decent croissant with jam. None such. It was disappointing. Meals were not impressive either, but the complimentary wine was good."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and polite, both beverages and an excellent lunch was offered."
Cons: "A delay was not ideal but nothing to worry about since the flight arrived on time."
Pros: "Service was much better than on the flight from MIA to CDG 3 weeks before - that was very poor. Entertainment was excellent - great selection of movies. Premium Economy was definitely worth the upgrade cost."
Cons: "Boarding was a complete debacle - no control over who went where. Sky Priority line was full of 50 people who weren't Sky Priority, and there was only one person checking passports. The two people at the desk didn't care when I noted this. We were called to the desk in advance of boarding to check passport information. When we got to the check in line, we were taken aside for more passport checking, even though we are US citizens with Trusted Traveler status in the GOES program. We were one of the first people at the departure lounge, and one of the the last to board."
Pros: "Crew is very attentive and working hard during trying times."
Cons: "My chairs screen in particular was very difficult to use because the touch screen was not working 90% of the time."
Pros: "No and no."
Cons: "Very crowded in.club class. Way lower standard for business class as compared to the other airlines."
Cons: "4 hs delay"
Cons: "I made a mistake in my daughter's surname while booking online, BA refused ro change it at check-in and forced me to buy a new ticket for her."
Pros: "Leg room fantastic"
Pros: "The crew were very attentive and there was a large variety of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "I am not a heavy set guy but the seats were unreasonably close to each other, this meant that when you eat a meal your elbows push into your sides making it hard to bring food to your mouth."
Cons: "Direct flights to and from South Africa to USA not via Middle East"
Cons: "Very narrow seats"
Pros: "The crew, the food and the smooth journey."
Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "Nothing. Pretty good for a short trip."
Cons: "Delayed, twice!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly. The boarding process was very organized."
Cons: "The seat and entertainment were terrible. The TV worked only in the last hour and the seat was not comfortable. No leg room, and the passenger in front of me wasn't considerate -- I couldn't move in my chain when his chair was down)."
Pros: "The A380 is roomy with large overhead bins. Its quiet and smooth. Flight was on time!!"
Cons: "It was impossible to select a seat in advance. I could not even get to seat selection at online checkin. It was very frustrating. When I went to BA in London and Los Angeles they said it was responsibility of AA and when I went to AA in London & Los Angeles they referred me back to BA. Why can I not choose seats like on other airlines????"
Pros: "BA in South Africa run a clean efficient airline. Planes are new crew well trained and food is good."
Cons: "Preseating totally random no matter your status. Booked state of my choice well in advance and was presented at the back of the plane on check-in"
Pros: "I liked the seats that I got. Staff were friendly and it was a comfortable flight overall."
Cons: "There wasn't enough drinks (water etc) coming around after meals."
Pros: "Everything was okay"
Cons: "Everything was okay"
Pros: "Feels good to fly with a company that cares"
Cons: "Leg room seems to be disappearing on all airlines unless you pay for it"
Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding."
Cons: "The way that the crew (both in economy on right of plane) spoke to, and handled sensitive situations with several of the passengers in a loud and rather rude manner. This is not the British way that I have been accustomed to on previous BA flights, and is rather upsetting. The crew were very abrupt in general, and did not have that seasoned and polite demeanor which I expect from BA."
Cons: "A one hour connection in london heathrow is near to impossible. I lost my connection i was suppose to be in madrid at 11am and it was suppose to be a 10-11 hours of travel. I wont make it to madrid until 6pm incremeting my travel time to a total of 24 hours for this reason it was and is a POOR and mediocre flight!"
Pros: "BA moved me on to the Kulula flight without any fuss and gave me a meal voucher."
Cons: "I got to the airport to find that my 19:15 flight had been delayed to 22:15. I hadn't received any notification from BA and still do not know the reason for the delay. The only other option available was for BA to put us on the 20:20 Kulula flight to Lanseria and then shuttle us from Lanseria to OR Tambo. It really is not pleasant to get back home so late on a week night and not even be given any warning or any reason for the huge delay."
Pros: "The staff was great, friendly, helpful and professional."
Cons: "I thought the food lacked imagination, was skimpy and too hot. I burned my mouth several times. I really do not like having to pay for a booked seat. I have special needs at my age and so booking early is how I typically make sure I can access the bathrooms easily without climbing over sleeping passengers. I picked flight for the price, but in the end I should have stuck with Delta, KLM and Air France and got the extra miles as with seat bookings and only one bag allowance, what I ended up paying did not make it worth it. Oh well, live and learn. Seats were tight, anyone bigger than me would have really struggled."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "My wife and I having to sit in separate seats when there were seats available next to each other. Being charged excess baggage when one suitcase was weigh under weight"
Pros: "All the normal stuff of flying domestic."
Cons: "The way that my brand new suitcase was damaged on the flight and BA just said that handles are excluded from bag damage. Thus, they can do what ever they want with your bag's handles, manhandle it and not take any responsibility. My suitcase was clearly damaged by the way it was handled since i booked it in till i received it again and they just said sorry...there is nothing we can do for you!!! Now that is is poor customer service."
Cons: "My previous flight was delayed at the start and further in flight so I missed my connection. LHR makes too much use of buses."
Pros: "I have physical limitations and required assistance stowing overhead luggage and help getting out of seat. Crew were terrific. Wheelchair assistance also great. Travels on my own."
Pros: "Great flight and services"
Cons: "It was all good"
Pros: "Movie snack, plenty of water, food quality, attendants personable and friendly!"
Pros: "My flight from Manchester was delayed so I missed my direct flight to bahrain and change of flight to deferent distantion other than my original and arrived to Bahrain next day"
Pros: "Flight was on time,actually ahead of time."
Cons: "Aircon was not efficient. Very hot in the plane."
Pros: "Pilot announcements"
Cons: "Poor customer from flight attendants"
Pros: "No food or entertainment. Flight was delayed, then delayed more because of gate assignment."
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable and no entertainment on the flight."
Pros: "The space on the A380 is nice, comfortable seats, and the crew was very considerate"
Cons: "No between meals drinks (like water, etc.) or snacks left out on this 11 hour flight. The seats are still a bit close together... for the comfort of a long legged man behind me, I was not really able to recline my chair at all."
Pros: "Aside from the typically narrow seats, the service included all the hallmarks of higher-tier service, such as hot towels, cloth napkins, a good meal, and so on. The crew was attentive, as well."
Cons: "The airplane was really old. The screens wouldn't start for a really long time. Very, very few options for movies and the screen and sound had terrible quality. Food was not really good."
Pros: "Staff was extremely friendly"
Cons: "Seats were too close and comfort was hard for the long flights. I wish premium economy was better explained to one world partners prior to booking so there would be access to better seats."
Cons: "$100 just to choose a seat ? $100 for a 2nd bag? A Kellogg's bar for breakfast? Shame on them."
Pros: "Strong tailwind brought us in 30mins ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Nothing. Was a smooth and friendly flight. Cabin crew were courteous and efficient."
Cons: "Took forever to serve cold drinks and food. Said we were going to have a short flight due to tail wind so they would not serve hot drinks. Mean while we landed at the expected time of arrival."
Pros: "Great food. Ground staff were very accommodating."
Cons: "Flight crew attitude. Cramped seating."
Cons: "Had to pay for any food or drink."
Pros: "Very prompt and good communication from pilot"
Pros: "Crew looked groomed"
Cons: "No snacks"
Pros: "Everything was good after we finally left."
Cons: "Due to mechanical issues, flight was canceled. Missed a day of our honeymoon as a result. Compensation offered as a result was unsatisfactory."
Cons: "Flight delayed 1 hr resulting in my missing the connecting flight and an extra 12 hr wait at the airport, not a happy situation!"
Pros: "Vueling uniforms."
Cons: "The most tightest and uncomfortable plane ride in my life. Stop flying your customers on such an awful plane especially executive club members."
Cons: "Kayak/priceline re-booked my flight for my sister and I from SAA to BA, but failed to completely reissue us tickets. When we checked in for the flight, we had no ticket for the first leg of the flight, but we had tickets for the remaining flights. We immediately called to fix this problem, but due to slow customer service, we weren't issued tickets in time and the flight left without us. We missed all remaining connecting flights and were forced to buy New tickets. Now we have to work with kayak/priceline to get all my money back due to their error. We came back a day later than expected and missed going back to work."
Pros: "Gold muffin."
Cons: "Lots of turbulence so only business class got drinks does not make sense how is it that turbulence only stops economic people from getting drinks."
Cons: "Delayed twice, switched gates, AND forced to gate check my carry on "because the plane was small" and supposedly they were having everyone check their bags. Except that didn't turn out to be true. Frustrating although baggage claim had bags waiting when we got through customs."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient and the crew was friendly and very helpful. The one flight was on time, but the other can be excused because of a technical fault on the plain. Safety is priority #1 so although a 3 hour delay was not nice, i'd rather be safe than sorry!"
Cons: "The food was absolutely appalling on both flights... We received a cheese snack. It was an old sesame seed bun ,with a very thin, small slice of cheese which you could hardly taste on it. With that they placed cucumber, that does not add to the taste of the dish, but only makes the bread soggy. There is also a piece of lettuce on that is past its crunchy freshness it is supposed to have. The last ingredient is sun-dried tomato that was the only ray of light for a poor effort of a snack by BA. I can truly say that during the past year BA's in flight food service on local flights, are on a downward spiral and almost in the dumps."
Pros: "The plane itself had nothing wrong with it. They gave me priority boarding because I had a musical instrument with me as my carryon, and then let me put it in the flights crew closet so it wouldn't get damaged. I appreciated that."
Cons: "Flight check in was an unbearably long process, in a hot and stuffy area. Once through check in, the passport check line took over an hour. 100-150 people all corralled in like cattle, while ONLY ONE agent was checking passports to enter the security area. This was outside the secure area!!! Anyone could have entered here and executed a terrorist attack with large casualties. It was unsafe, uncomfortable, and unreasonable. Shame on you Paris Airport. Then the flight was late on arrival, and late again on departure, causing me to miss my connection to Los Angeles. This opened up a whole new list of botched customer services."
