Cons: "Breakfast could have been better"
Pros: "Crew took great care of us."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "The crew members could have been more courteous to clients on the flight by lowering their voices when conversating among themselves."
Pros: "The crew was efficient and very helpful."
Cons: "Entertainment choices of selected movies were limited."
Pros: "great food, staff and service. I like it when i can brush my teeth on a over night flight with disposable tooth brush and tooth paste."
Cons: "Flight delay communication could be better. There were some major confusions between the gates on where my flight was going to land and departure until it was finally announced that flight was delayed."
Cons: "Boarding in New York could have been better organized"
Cons: "Air on the plane was stuffy"
Cons: "Check in and apps stuck in 80'"
Pros: "was not able to board and was checked in 4 hours in advance"
Pros: "Spacious leg room."
Cons: "The food is average. Could be much better. Eg, serve eggs like omelette for Breakfast. Only one choice . The other choice could be Jap menu vi differing it’s s Japanese airline. Flew JAL 2 yrs ago too. Food was not good. Also , toilets could be cleaner. There’s always a pungent smell."
Pros: "The service was excellent"
Cons: "Food needs improvement"
Pros: "People were friendly - from check in right through to disembarkment."
Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "Service and Entertainment were great. Lots of legroom is great."
Cons: "There are no air vents per seat so on the whole I was very hot and uncomfortable during the flight. One other detail: this is not Japan Airlines fault, but at LAX we had to sit on the runway for an hour because there was some confusion about the parking space for the plane. After a nine hour flight, to sit and wait for another hour was very uncool."
Pros: "The flight from Chicago to Tokyo was delayed, which made me worried that I would miss the connection to Taipei. I was very happy to discover that an airline staff person was waiting for me when I got off the plane, having already changed me to another Taipei flight. She explained things and guided me to the right place. She was able to walk amazingly fast for a woman wearing high heels!"
Pros: "Excellent service - delicious meals"
Pros: "Lots of room, generous checked luggage policy, great airline."
Cons: "I wasn't able to pre-select my seat."
Pros: "service was excellent. Seating was OK in spite of it being economy."

Pros: "Very comfortable plane, even full. Polite crew."
Cons: "more movie options!"
Pros: "Sakura lounge was excellent."
Cons: "The entertainment system was bit unsteady."
Cons: "I reserved Korean air but it was Japan air line. I was really difficult to web-check in to find my reservaiton."
Pros: "Each seat had their own screens, and there was a small footrest available for each seat."
Cons: "The food was uncharacteristically bad for JAL. They served some sort of French chef's dish that was terrible. Normally, JAL has great food that I love to eat. The plane was also pretty old so it felt more cramped than usual, and the seats we uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crews were polite and reliable. No bossy or mean like other airlines. they moved prompt, no running or fast walk on aisles, so that passengers can ask things easily. Food was much better comparing with any other companies. The boarding time was delayed one hour, however we landed japan 2, 3 mins later than the estimated arrival time. Landing technique was beautiful. American, United, ANA which I flew caused me have a deep Earache. I didn't get any pain from this flight. I am already scared of returning flight with American airplines."
Pros: "I liked the overall service and professionalism."
Cons: "The entertainment selection was limited, it was an older system I assume as the screen was not touchscreen."
Pros: "The food is very delicious. I can choose a lot of great movies. The space is also big to move."
Pros: "Good, clean aircraft; professional, pleasant, well-trained crew. Felt good when I embarked, felt good when I disembarked. Can't ask for more than that."
Pros: "Everything was good, solid across the board. Nothing to not like. I especially liked the legroom in economy. Probably the best legroom I"ve had in economy."
Pros: "Clean aircraft. More space between seats. Pleasant, eager to please cabin crew. Good movie choices."
Cons: "The food was no better than any other airplane food."
Pros: "Excellent service by JAL check-in people and the flight crew. Also, for a standard economy seat, I found the seat spacing and resulting legroom was generous - and I'm 6 ft. tall."
Cons: "Can't think of anything, really."
Pros: "Seats in cos are comfortable and plenty of leg room compare to US airlines. Food selection is very good as well as the service. Flight Attendants were very friendly and attentive. Will fly JAL again!"
Pros: "Seat was very comfortable and had many games and movies to keep me preoccupied during the flight."
Cons: "I didn't like that the crew at check-in and the crew on the plane told me different things. The crew at check-in told me I could keep my purse with me, and the crew on the airline told me I had to put it overhead. Please be consistent! Flying is very stressful for me, and I want the staff to make it as stress-free as possible. As for boarding, I wasn't allowed into the gate until an hour before. What really bothered me was that they had already let some people into the gate and shut some other people out. Either let people in or don't. Don't follow the rules halfway because then they won't mean anything. I was very shocked by this and have never experienced this at any airline before. All I wanted to do was sit down and relax at the gate before boarding. If this ever happened to me again, I would not fly with the same airlines. To think that this was a JAL flight, with such a high reputation of customer service, makes me even more wary of booking a flight with JAL. I didn't appreciate being treated that way, and I will not tolerate it if it happens again."
Pros: "The most polite and attentative flight attendants and great food options."
Pros: "Everything from delicious Japanese cuisine to attentive and courteous customer service from ground crew to flight crew greatly impressed our family. Being able to fly to Haneda is even better. We plan to fly JAL from now on."
Pros: "flight attendants are always nice and gentle on JAL. Food is great. Rarely late departures"
Cons: "nothing really"
Pros: "flying JAL is always a pleasure. The flight attendants are consummately professional and the entertainment system is top notch"
Pros: "As always on JAL 787-8 long haul flights, the crew was very courteous, entertainment was varied, food was alright and seats were better than some."
Cons: "The JAL first-generation 787s don't provide the great legroom that newer planes do, but is still infinitely better than older 767s and 747s."
Pros: "Comfortable plane, good service"
Pros: "Service & seats are great."
Cons: "The connections were a bit late, making the long trip longer!"
Pros: "Apex suite offers plenty of privacy in business class though fewer stowage areas and generally less room to move about than reverse herringbone seats."
Cons: "JAL entertainment system had comparably fewer movie choices vs. many other airlines including American, United, and Delta. Surprising that Studio Cathay actually featured more Japanese films than the JAL Magic V system."
Pros: "Excellent customer service!"
Pros: "We had a 4 hour delay due to maintenance, so many of us missed connecting flights in Tokyo. But the airline put us up in a hotel and gave us meals, so I had a nice bonus day to see the city. The flight itself was very pleasant, with the cleanest bathrooms I've ever seen on a long flight and plenty of food and drink."
Pros: "Great 12hr flight"
Cons: "Loved everything!!"
Pros: "nothing at all...horrible aircraft, horrible flight"
Cons: "1) could not pre-book seat as it was a codeshare. You should change that...better on a budget carrier 2) The plane is not competitive, ancient entertainment system, no power in seats to plug in 3) Entertainment system did not work for all but 10 minutes or so of the flight. 4) food was really horrid, no japanese option!"
Cons: "On time would be better."
Cons: "This time Singapore Airlines Staff seem to be not so helpful. Previously they were happy to help with smiling face and approachable immediately. This time in spite of asking for help in the cabin no one turned up even after multiple requests. I could only get help when someone one walks next to me."
Pros: "Newer Aircraft and very convenient"
Cons: "I dont see any thing to improve"
Cons: "The seat covers looked worn and dirty. Needs an upgrade."
Pros: "Crew will do anything to help"
Cons: "I was on a nut free diet However they still gave me a ice cream covered in macadamia nuts. Nut free meals were also gluten, vegan etc so very bland"
Cons: "crew isnt very careful in serving the food but its not really that bad. but im just comparing it from my previous flights so i think that group of FA's can do better. And the food was served a bit a late so they dont have time to serve hot beverage anymore."
Cons: "I recomended yo my friend"
Cons: "Softer seats and more movies"
Cons: "5 crying babies on a red eye. Don’t know if that can be prevented."
Pros: "Overall good"
Cons: "Boarding needs better management."
Pros: "Nothing beats Singapore SQ!"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. Efficient service and good boarding. Seemingly wider seats than the newer A350s."
Cons: "Positively ancient entertainment system with poor selection and bad visual quality. Ads pop up every time you go into another menu. If you're flying SIN->BNE I'd avoid the 7.20am departure, you'll get the old 777-200s rather than the A350s they run on other departures."
Cons: "When refreshments were being served they did so in a hurry for some reason and missed passengers including myself. We had to call for an attendant to serve the refreshments who seemed a little annoyed at that."
Pros: "Brand new aircraft, excellent service and food"
Cons: "J class seat, 12A window. Top of my seat curled around my sides, which blocked vision thru 1.5 of the 3 windows I had access to. The enclosure also protuded into my left bicep when I had my elbow resting on the arm rest. Table on my right hand side was too close to my body, and to high to reach a drink easily, I literally had to lift my whole right arm to pick up a glass."
Pros: "Great service."
Cons: "Disinfectant smell."
Pros: "Seats more comfortable than premium economy, staff more helpful!"
Cons: "Food was ordinary"
Cons: "The desserts. The bun."

Cons: "Inflight entertainment wasn't as extensive as in previous years."

Pros: "Liked the service"
Cons: "Nothing special."
Pros: "Was very old plane but was good"
Cons: "Food and crew was well"
Pros: "I've always flown Singapore airlines wherever possible. Standards are unbeatable until this flight..."
Cons: "The dinner was terrible. I am a long time customer of Singapore Airlines and I know where the standard are. The food on this flight was the worst I've seen. The starter (vermicelli) was overly salty, dry and severely undercooked. The main course was acceptable but the portion of chicken was more like side dish not main. Missing sides."
Pros: "I liked there was entertainment"
Cons: "It was an old tired plane"
Pros: "The attendants are pleasant to the eye, thats about it."
Cons: "I heard so many good things and was left disappointed. The service from staff try to help and be nice but some of them do not care at all, things like too busy to bring a beverage etc was a tad annoying. dont know if i will use them again"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and whole on ground process was efficient."
Cons: "Aircraft not as clean as expected from a flight departing from their home port. Can't put my finger on it, but standards have slipped for slipped for SQ, albeit from a very high standard."

Pros: "Personal Touch!"
Cons: "No such!"
Cons: "Old planes and screens."
Pros: "Sound sleep"
Pros: "The staff were helpful, once I had complained enough."
Cons: "Aircraft was old, tired, and uncomfortable. The seat of my chair was not attached. There were huge comms boxes below every 2nd seat so zero legroom. Screens were so old they were unwatchable and tiny. Air Asia provides a superior service for a fraction of the price."
Cons: "Headphones were not functioning properly"
Pros: "Singapore service is always outstanding"
Cons: "temp on plane was freezing and even two blankets did not suffice. Everyone was really cold."
Pros: "Second bag was four foot bronze statue, no problem or extra cost"

Pros: "For as long 14 hour journey they sure make it comfortable."
Cons: "The food was very poor indeed, the entertainment system was not working in my seat or the seat behind, I had to move to another seat"
Pros: "Changed by very helpful ground staff from lousy seats to exit row at no cost."
Cons: "Entertainment interface showing its age."
Pros: "The ground staff in Sydney!"
Cons: "From the moment we checked in in Singapore there was no service. Having travelled first class and Economy before with Singapore I was very disappointed with Business class. My husband and daughter were in First Class. The service was below average to say the least - more training required from check in to on board - (in Sydney the staff on the ground went above and beyond) In Singapore it was very fake and contained no sincerity. The lounge itself was also ordinary compared to others, no Amenity kits or PJs in business class - even Virgin Australia has that! I was so excited to be travelling Singapore again given past experiences but now Im not sure I will want to fly them again."
Pros: "I am still trying to find my bags. I missed my connection and Jet Blue made me stand in a line to get rebooked for 7 hours. Unprofessional, uncaring. None of this was my fault but everyone who represents Jet Blue treated me as if it were. Never again"
Cons: "old facilities"
Pros: "Good crew, but working with some tired, old equipment."
Cons: "The padding in my seat seemed to be a bit thin and became progressively more uncomfortable as the flight progressed. The in-flight entertainment systems are really showing some wear & tear. The screen was blurry, the letters on the control buttons had work off and the sound quality was terrible."
Pros: "Arrival in Canberra was excellent."
Cons: "Horrendously uncomfortable business-class seat for a redeye flight."
Pros: "Movie selection, very helpful crew and good quality food."
Cons: "I just wish they used newer planes on this route but everything else was perfect!"
Pros: "Crew was exceptional. Very polite and helpful. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Food is not that great. They served a beef dish as the second meal without a non-meat alternative. Seats are pretty tight and the movie selection was not that great, although they offered dozens of options so it could just be my taste in movies."
Pros: "Everything was nice"
Pros: "All around quality Airline..."
Cons: "Redundant security checks, even at the gate area!"
Pros: "Good food, comfort seat"
Cons: "Crew skipped my row when giving food and didn't realize until I came and asked. None of the crew showed their apology"
Cons: "The flight was delayed from Athens by 1.5 hours. Crew assured us we would make our connections. When we landed no info was given. No announcements made. We were forced to clear security again, even though just transferring and, after running to our gate, found the connection had left and the gate was abandoned with no one to tell us where to go or what to do. The lack of communication and information was appalling. Most people eventually found their way through the airport to a desk that booked them on a flight the next day. It was exhausting and the Turkish staff were unsympathetic."
Pros: "Nothing much to shout about this flight. It got there safely?"
Cons: "At 31" the pitch is terrible for a tall guy like myself. The screen was old and unresponsive, and there wasn't even a pleasant crew to supplement. How it won Best European Airline befuddles me."
Pros: "overall, service was great"
Cons: "seats are too narrow"
Pros: "The best trip! Thk"s! Good luck,T.Airlines!"
Pros: "Easy and intime boarding"
Cons: "Need to include sea food in your menu"
Pros: "Combo deal....It might not sound funny to many but my 21 hour lay over gave me an opportunity to visit instabul and that was great."
Pros: "Modern and comfortable planes, service was nice and friendly and the food was amazing which isn't very common when requesting a special meal."
Cons: "the passenger sitting next to me got drunk on 4 glasses of whiskey and was invading my personal space at some point he was even trying to touch me. I think he was allowed to drink to much which caused this issue"
Pros: "Super staff"
Cons: "Bad WiFi connection"
Pros: "Entertaiment was good with choices on the latest movies and live sports channels. Boarding was fast enough and the crew are friendly."
Cons: "The seats are not able to be lowered and for a 11.5hrs flight, thats really painful. Food wasnt really tasty and portion seems smaller compare to other flights i had been on."
Pros: "Courteous staff. Comfortable plane."
Cons: "My transfer flight was physically impossible to make. Though my flight from Zagreb to Istanbul was on time, by the time I got into the terminal they were already making a final boarding call to my flight to JFK."
Pros: "I was so impressed by every staff of Turkish Airlines.. I was very young when TWA. Was an elite airlines, with the flight attendants dress perfect.. it made me feel like I was flying first class...with this being my first time using Turkish airlines I actually will use them over the American Airlines; just because the way I was treated and how quickly someone was willing to assist anyone.... I say you are the best!"
Pros: "Good service, friendly and hard working flight attendants Nice gift bag with toiletries"
Cons: "Head pads of a seat don't go low enough for my low height. Provided pillows helped though"
Pros: "No comment"
Pros: "almost nothing"
Pros: "Excellent customer service, crew always helpful and glad to please."
Cons: "Atatürk airport link too confusing and decreased my flight experience"
Pros: "The food is great and so is the entertainment system."
Cons: "Unfortunately the aircon didn't work properly before takeoff in Singapore. The plane only cooled down when it was in the air."
Cons: "Flight attendants need to be friendly ."
Pros: "Having every single person I spoke with pass me on to another party. Apparently customer complaints is really no one's job. They're extremely motivated to have you find someone else to correct your problem. Rest assured it is "your problem" I was told quite explicitly that my missed connection flight and lost luggage was not their problem."
Cons: "They lost my luggage. Couldn't even tell me when my bag was checked despite the scan tag they attached to my boarding pass when they weighed it and checked it in back in New York. They legitimately had no idea if my bag ever left the United States. It took 3 days to locate my baggage while I was trying to celebrate my anniversary with my wife in Athens. being without your luggage for half a week in a foreign country is not even remotely fun. I had to wait around missing tours and reservations trying to find our luggage most of our first 48 hours in Greece. After giving up on getting our stuff we had to waste a chunk of time shopping to replace our clothing and toiletries. Despite having purchased the travel insurance I'm still fighting a month after our trip ended to be reimbursed for the clothes we had to buy just to begin our vacation. Again they continue to stonewall by transferring our complaint calls endlessly and forwarding our emails with "new" case numbers each time. Basically what this accomplishes is they can't ever find the case number they updated it to and insist that the prior case number is listed as resolved. Since they say it's resolved there is nothing anyone can do to help. Not sure if I'll ever get any satisfaction out of this debacle."
Pros: "Enjoyed the long flight with warm hospitality"
Cons: "There was no personal monitor to watch movies during the flight"
Pros: "Comfortable plane Good food Friendly service"
Pros: "Free wifi for business class HD movies + good quality DENON headseat"
Cons: "Terrible foods taste Zero hospitality crews Lack of food and deink service during 13hour flight No airconditiiner at gate 230 and queue like hell!"

Pros: "The food was really good but very little"
Cons: "Unfortunately I asked three ( 3 ) time for plankitte during the flight but with No response from (2 )differant"
Pros: "Luggage left in Istanbul due to short connjection was delivered to my home the same evening. Check in was simple and quick."
Cons: "Seats too close together on A330 airplane, entertainment console difficult to use and flight attendent did not have patience to explain how to use it, ran out of main course and remaining chicken course was too spicy to eat, flight from Singapore was delayed in takeoff making it very difficult to make connecting flight,"
Pros: "Never again shame Missed connexion in Istanbul no service awful and lack of respect no more such a disaster no Thanx 3rd and last time"
Cons: "This flight was cancelled due to weather conditions in Turkey, a snow storm that caused the Istanbul airport to be closed. I tried to reschedule my flight but was delayed 4 days which meant I was going to miss my work for 3 days."
Pros: "I look forward to flying with Turkish Airlines in the future. Thanks for a good trip."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "My suitcase is dirty and full of grease on the side"
Pros: "Everything was good except the airplane.. i was on row 13 and the cabinet was warm and air-condition was not working fine.. i reported this ti the flight attendant. She confirmed the temp was set to 23 C however it was definitely not less that 26C .. also it took long time to serve the hot meal although we were on rhe plane and the flight depart8 got delayed for 90 minutes due to technical problem. On the other hand, seat were comfortable and flight attendants were so nice and friendly.. also Turkish lounge and airport were good"
Pros: "love how nice the crew is, and how they treat everyone with courtesy, and security conscience also"
Cons: "I find the a b c d to board very difficult, sometimes you get a and sometimes you get d, and if you get c or d is a big mess, as mayority of passengers are there, I don t find it very organized and nobody in line seems to be happy with boarding, everything else excellent"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable"
Cons: "The entertainment system was not operational"
Pros: "We were hesitant about flying Turkish Airlines. In the past they have had bad reviews and there had just been the terrorist bombing at the airport. But the flights to Croatia were cheap so we bought. The food was great and plentiful. Staff were very polite. We had a night flight to Istanbul and both my wife an I were able to stretch out in empty middle rows seats and sleep. I would definitely fly them again. They are very underrated."

Cons: "Cramped seating."
Pros: "Everything is top notch for an airline company."
Cons: "Nothing.... I enjoyed every moment of the flight."
Cons: "Our total flight time was about 17 hours - MAD- AMS-LAX. My husband and I both have an internationally approved carry on luggages with us. When we checked in - they asked us to both check in our carry on luggage. The reason why is because they said they don’t think they have enough space for our carry ons. I told the crew member checking us in that other people that was checking in with the same hand carry size luggage with us had no problems taking it with them. For being about to be on a 17 HOUR FLIGHT we should be ALLOWED to have our carry ons with us! We take carry ons for that reason! I had to argue and prove my case to the crew member to atleast keep 1 carry on with us. I thought that was an UNACCEPTABLE reason for us to check in a carry on luggage when we had a 17 hour travel time ahead of us. Not a happy costumer here."
Cons: "They have mabaged to lost my luggage"
Pros: "Boarding was as expected, crew & food were ok. Nothing else positive to extract out of this flight."
Cons: "Delayed flight, horrible baggae policy when the flight is actually operated by a partner of the company you bought the ticket from and not the actual company. Dirty seats, no in-flight entertainment whatsoever (not even a magazine)."
Pros: "Flight crew; legroom even in cheap seats."
Cons: "Exceptionally unhelpful customer service when asking about extra kilos/bags. Just quoted the online info back at us. We simply wanted to know how much would be charged if the bag was 1-2kgs overweight. We could not get a straight answer, just quoted the unclear company policy. Extremely frustrating and annoying. KLM offer a superior flight experience - it is a shame their terrestrial customer servic does not match it!"
Pros: "Only thing we liked was the fact that we were able to get onto our flight at all..."
Cons: "Was not informed that checking in online is the only way to secure a seat. So, regardless of whether you book your tickets 3 months in advance or the day before, you're not actually guaranteed a seat unless you check in online. We weren't told this until we were at the airport and checked in there that we might not be able to get our pre-booked in advance flight because of over-booking from KLM. We then had to wait and see if there were seats available when boarding. Luckily, there were, but we were not sat together. Not the greatest start to our first holiday together as a couple. We were told that if there weren't seats available, they'd pay for us to get to another airport to fly out, which would have meant a huge delay on the only time off we'd get together this year and have to rearrange our pre-booked and pre-paid living arrangements for the week. All because there wasn't a lot of emphasis on the need to check in online before hand. You'd think if someone checked in at the airport, that would be more of a guarantee that they'd be flying with you that day, but apparently not. Definitely not impressed or happy with this part of the KLM experience. This is the only company that we've had this problem with, they should make it clearer that it is essential to check in online."
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Pros: "Flight was delayed for three hours and was a very stressful flight"
Cons: "Flight was not on time and got to destination very very late pier management of aircrafts"
Pros: "Usual professional and friendly service from my airline of choice for most destinations."
Pros: "That we didn’t crash"
Cons: "Everything! The crew was rude, no entertainment whatsoever, late boarding, late departure and bad experience with the check in process both in app and on website."
Pros: "The pilot kept us informed periodically during our journey. I liked that we could choose our seating online. The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The plane was dirty, all seats did not have pillows and blankets. Seating was not very comfortable, particularly as there was a box attached to one of the legs of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to move my legs to an uncomfortable angle."
Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."
Pros: "great choice of entertainment content, friendly crew"
Pros: "The crew were just amazing, such lovely male stewards! They were helpful and friendly and generally wonderful."
Cons: "The entertainment was quite dated and didn't have new movies etc"
Pros: "That we didn't crash"
Cons: "Being delayed and missing my connecting flight. No entertainment onboard (for hours and hours)."
Cons: "Terrible service in flight and customer service wise .. app functionality was below"
Pros: "I was upgraded to Buisness so, no complaints"
Cons: "No Marlboro light cigarettes on the duty free shopping cart"
Pros: "The crew were lovely and welcoming. We was given snacks and drinks on the flight which was great. Take off was a bit delayed but boarding was smooth. Couldn't complain about the comfort as was only just over an hours flight."
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Flight delayed."
Cons: "The fact that there are different airline carriers for one flight is hard. In my second flight they made me check a bag which was considered a carry on during my first flight"
Pros: "Short layover connecting from US flight and luggage transferred ok to destination. Food option not great but at least they didn't charge for it unlike some other airlines. No entertainment but to be expected on such a short flight."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The space is no longer a respectful space. Paid 32 Euros for my seat, there was not enough space, the man beside me kept jabbing me on the ribs."
Cons: "Flight delayed ... Myself and three other colleagues didn't have our luggage show up from KLM flight from Amsterdam to Brussels...even though all of our luggage was labeled "priority". Once in customer service line, we looked and saw that many of the other passengers on our flight also never received their luggage. We estimated that 20-25% of the people on that flight did not receive their luggage as they were in line with us for the same problem. Hard to understand how so many pieces of luggage could have been overlooked and not loaded on our flight. Obviously there is a huge gap in their quality system to ensure mistakes like this are prevented."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Having to pay extra to pick a seat prior to check-in. I didn't, and got a decent seat anyway."
Cons: "Seats are very tight and are short on comfort. The "occupied" toilet signs not working causing queues. On meals, forget the things that are impossible to to sustain in a fresh/tasty state, like melon, Tomatoes fried, certain types of sandwich where the bread absorbs any liquid/juice, overuse of rolls. The meals are tested under almost clinical conditions, who ever travels Economy and tastes the food in situ. Put more of the edible foood in. People prefer a single course meal as against a 3 course with dead ends on each side of the main."
Cons: "Booked business to get some needed sleep on the red eye as I'm straight into work today. Babies crying disturbed sleep and bags delayed to boot. Unimpressed."
Pros: "Gate was super close to the lounge."
Cons: "The security check at the gate requires one to leave the comfort of the lounge early incase of queues and then wait in an over crowded lounge with the other passengers (so the fact you are business/first or have one world status does little to ease the burden of boarding. The lounge also did not offer red eye passengers a meal and the on board meal service is slow (so if you are hungry it eats into precious sleeping time). The breakfast wakeup was also disappointing. My meal of choice was not available and the whole process was rushed like a fast food restaurant. Overall I am disappointed by the club world offering on this route and would not pay for it again unless intended to get on and just sleep for the entire journey."
Pros: "The crew was great and seating an entertainment options were wonderful."
Cons: "Food. Other airlines in Asia have a far better selection of meals."
Pros: "Crew and flight were fine"
Cons: "Due to the way Kayak / kiwi.com booked my flights, even though both legs were on the same airline they were booked as two separate flights causing me to wait in line for two hours to get my bag and check back in in Heathrow airport."
Pros: "The crew were polite and very helpful. The service was also good."
Cons: "The leg room in Economy is awful and my seat was very uncomfortable 44C I have long legs and when seats are reclined they encroach on the persons comfort behind. On such a long Haul flight from Perthto Sydney and then onto Singapore and London. Comfort should be a whole lot better. Boarding needs im"
Pros: "The crew was super nice."
Cons: "Male crew who served me on this flight was rude as he threw me the disembarkment cards in a hurry but treated the Caucasian passengers nicely. How snobbish! My family and I will never recommend British Airways to our friends"
Pros: "Sydney arrival amazing swift immigration and customs staff polite another step forward Australia"
Cons: "The BREAKFAST wow CHILLED egg and bacon sandwich it may have been delicious in 1956 on an old Viscount but really substandard is an understatement LATE too tight to speed up ie spend more on fuel which increases the stress for me as now we are really close to missing the next leg but praise be - arrival was amazing once we got off the plane see above"
Pros: "I appreciated regular fluids; water and juices being brought around as this was quite a long haul-13hrs. Staff were good, although I would say less"
Cons: "The food was still ho-hum, ordinary. I would have thought exiting Singapore food could have been very tasty, some spice etc."
Cons: "There was some problem getting the bags on which meant we didn't leave the gate until almost an hour late. Then because of the delay we sat on the runway for over half an hour more. Meaning we missed our flight to Austin. Two flights over an hour late in one day. Oh, and we are missing one of our bags."
Pros: "Staff very pleasant"
Cons: "Old 747 poor video poor seats old toilets full of dust these plans need to be retired"
Pros: "Direct flight to Austin"
Cons: "Food needs improvement"
Pros: "Thanks for many up to date movie choices to watch. Crew worked hard to keep the toddlers in front of me happy. (and they were really good with them!)"
Cons: "Dislike posting of gate assignments in Edinburgh and London so late. Means I have to hightail it across the terminals, every time. Dislike the gate change posting late. Had to hear about it from a passenger, no announcement was made. My chicken and potatoes lunch had potatoes as the side dish. Looked like the caterer had leftover potatoes to use! No real vegetables. 2 bites of spinach. Red wine was offered they had no white wine. No choice of sodas..."
Pros: "Food was good, constant attention to hydration from cabin crew. A nice touch with the ice cream."
Cons: "Seat size"
Pros: "Good size seats"
Cons: "The crew were rude and dismissive"
Pros: "Modern plane"
Cons: "Tiny sized seats, very narrow and no legroom. Horrible experience"
Pros: "Wine fantastic, crew fantastic, comfortable seats in biz on A380. Food selection diabolical"
Cons: "Food was awgul"
Pros: "Nothing it was a nightmare"
Cons: "The rude security staff, my previous British air flight from Dublin was 30’minutes late. Heathrow is terrible for connecting flights even with 2 hour leg room. What a joke. English people suck."
Pros: "The movie and television options were fairly good."
Cons: "I usually enjoy the BA flight from London to Austin, but this flight was extremely uncomfortable. The seats were cramped, and when the woman in front of me leaned her seat back, I didn't have enough space on my tray table to even keep a laptop fully open. The food (chicken casserole) was also terrible, and the airline ran out of other lunch options by the time they got to the back row where I was seated."
Pros: "updated plane, clean and nice"
Cons: "Poor legroom with large entertainment boxes taking up valuable space under the seat. Armrests do not lift all the way up - only go 45 degrees which is useless if sitting next to your partner and want some more room!"
Pros: "Great staff, ultra professional"
Cons: "Small food portions!"
Pros: "excellent service. Food was good. Flight was packed the the gills."
Pros: "Everything; crew was accommodating and friendly; food was good; crew offered liquid refreshments throughout the flight; crew demonstrated concern for our comfort."
Cons: "Nothing; everything was excellent"
Pros: "the staff tried to reason with the scary passenger"
Cons: "There was a scary passenger that caused me to have a panic attack because he kept yelling at the flight crew throughout the flight."
Pros: "Nice clean new plane. Courteous cabin personnel"
Cons: "Gluten Free meals that I ordered were not available, which is a major problem! Boarding took extra long as Crew wasn't ready yet, flight was an hour late in arriving, making it an exhausting 11.5 hr ordeal. Main issue: raging male passenger who screamed at Crew and other passengers for several hours and in effect held us in fear as very young and entirely female crew had trouble diffusing his anger. Seriously thought we were going to have to make a stop to get this guy removed from the plane. What was he so aggressive about? Not having a cradle for his baby. There were many other passengers w infants and he accosted the crew and the couple that did have the bassinet aggressively over and over again. Horrible."
Cons: "I missed my flight from Barcelona and when talking with BA customer support they were extremely unhelpful in helping me find a return flight to get home to America. In the end I was offered almost no help and had to buy a brand new flight via American. I loved my flight TO London on BA, it was fantastic but the return experience was a nightmare. Can I look into a partial refund on my ticket since I never caught the return flight?"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Check in staff, Lounge + lounge staff and Cabin crew were on par with expectations (very good). Disembarking the plane at Heathrow was organised, immigration process (I used the e-gates) was very quick and bags arrived promptly."
Cons: "Many ground staff on hand - but felt overall lack of coordination specifically after security check at the gate, with yet another boarding card check which seemed a bit pointless as boarding cards were checked before gate security as well? Eventually boarding the plane - one lady ended up in the wrong line for upper deck seating (which shows that the numerous boarding card checks they failed to give proper guidance on what line to join)."
Pros: "The crew was the very best."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The Boeing 787 and the Entertainment system."
Cons: "Toilets ran out of paper towels and kleenex Bags took too long to be delivered."
Pros: "I like that they managed to squeeze the seats in an A380 jumbo jets to make it feel like the space of a domestic carrier plane."
Cons: "Seat is small, no food menu on a 12-hour long haul flight from SIN to London. Only 1 available meal type: bland tasting "sea bass" soaked in tomato sauce. The air crew spent most of their time sitting in the back - zero effort in service - not once did they make rounds with cups of water/juice. In between meals, I request for some snacks and they said they don't carry any snacks at all - onboard a 12-hour long flight. I asked to BUY some Malteser chocolate and pringles, and the air crew exclaim "ohhhh but it's on the upper deck, I would have to climb up to get some." Here how about some bread rolls and butter. They offered me stale bread from the previous meal. I am their One World Partners SAPPHIRE Member. I shudder to think how they would treat their standard economy class passengers."
Pros: "Flight arrived early"
Cons: "Movie selection not that great"
Pros: "I enjoyed everything about my experience from booking through the airport, flight and customer service. Great job!"
Pros: "The welcome drinks and hot towels (premium economy) are good. As is the drinks trolley before meals. The seats are just OK"
Cons: "Major gripe is seat allocation we had several issues but the worst was being issued with a boarding pass and seats from London to Sydney only to have them changed to inferior seats at Singapore with the ultimatum "sit in the new seats or get off the plane". Excellent for customer relations, we won't be traveling BA again"
Pros: "They try there best"
Cons: "The union bull......"
Cons: "Changan T1 is awful. BA god poor. Otherwise fight to time and uneventful. Passenger cabin in 777s feels squashed. Toilets barely cope."
Cons: "Offer larger seats like United Airlines. For a few dollars you can upgrade economy to economy plus which offere 6 inches more leg room."
Pros: "Overall good service"
Pros: "This crew on this flight was so courteous and helpful. Loved them!"
Cons: "The boarding process is a bit of a cluster. No lines, just everybody crowding around until their group is called. Seems like it could be better organized."
Cons: "Bags took forever to arrive. After a long flight and jet lag the last thing you need is to stand around waiting for your bags. This seems to be a problem with this particular airport (ABIA)"
Pros: "Just great service, always! Could use a bit more leg room as always but otherwise I've never had any issues with BA!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and professional."
Pros: "Flight exactly on time, and crew were helpful without being intrusive."
Cons: "Cannot get on with the layout of BA business class - there is not sufficient room for me to lie flat (I'm only 6'4), the person next to you is uncomfortably intimate in the face-to-face layout, and there's no way to get out of a non-aisle seat without disturbing the person next to you."
Pros: "The premium economy seating is worth the extra money. The seats were incredibly comfortable."
Cons: "The food was not very good, but it rarely is on long flights."
Cons: "Small selection of movies"
Pros: "I enjoyed how courteous the team was, there was great customer service provided. They were prompt and the flight was on time."
Cons: "I wish there was a way to make sleeping/resting more comfortable for coach and business class."
Pros: "Crew and airport stuff"
Pros: "Love the plane--quiet, roomy, and very smooth."
Cons: "The business class seats wasted so much space by not creating a compartment. I sat rear facing, next to the window, and had no place to really access compartments which could have been next to the seat--instead it just drops off. Moreover, in flight, if you were sleeping and someone wanted to get out of their area, they would literally have to step over your legs. Who in the world designed this? Please ride AA's herring bone business class makeup, and see what a real business class cabin looks like."
Pros: "Flight back we upgraded to economy plus. Fantastic value. All BA staff we dealt with on phone, counter and flight were awesome! They all cared."
Cons: "Flight over was in economy. Bulkhead seats. Worst I've ever tried to sit in. To us , it was warm entire flight. This was new 787."
