My previous flight from JFK to Seoul was very good not this one."

Cons: "On my way from Chicago to Singapore, they had an old plane and the business class was mediocre at best. The seats were uncomfortable. They were stacked side by side and did not have a "personal pod" formation which in my honest opinion is quite a waste of thousands of dollars you paid to travel. Additionally, the entertainment was just okay. There were not too many great options of movies and for the old plane, the screens were really bad."
Pros: "The food choices, included Korean dishes. The disposal slippers are great when taking shoes off. The air hostesses were friendly and helpful. Good leg room."

Pros: "Staff is so friendly. Amazing legroom in economy, comfy seats. The food was great. They even offered packets with tooth brush and tooth paste. The plane's cleanliness is also stellar. I took a 14.5 hour flight that felt like a 5 hour flight. Korean Air's attention to detail sets the bar for all airlines"
Cons: "Nothing negative what so ever."
Pros: "I like Korean Air because they have really good to excellent service. The entertainment options are really good, and they are very accommodating of special requests and special needs. They are very strict about safety things. Even on a short 3 hour evening flight they provide a pillow and blanket for your comfort."
Cons: "On this flight, the beef dinner option was bad. Terrible strips of beef, and unidentifiable mushrooms."
Pros: "The cabin attendants were very attentive. Food and beverages were appreciated. Hot cloths to refresh ourselves were also appreciated. Needless to say, the skill of the personnel in the cockpit is also acknowledged. The blankets, pillow, and water were also a nice touch."

Pros: "The crew was excellent. The seat was reasonably comfortable. Boarding process was very orderly and smooth."

Cons: "Nothing can be better, an awesome flight"
Pros: "Everything was good. Seat is roomy and able to stretch leg."

Cons: "Will fly in a bit.still in Qatar airport waiting for my flight"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and polite. The flights were on time, and the entertainment options were good. The Doha airport is quite nice, with many eating and retail options. although everything is very expensive, even by airport standards."
Cons: "My wife and I personally don't mind a selection that leans heavily toward Indian food, but I imagine others will not. The main courses were mediocre and the "sandwich" offered between meals on the 13+ hour flight was cold, soggy and inedible. The seats on our A350 were hard and not very comfortable, and the recline function was difficult to operate. Security at the Doha airport was confusing. We had to go through 3 separate checkpoints for our transfer, each with different rules and procedures. The final check at our departure gate was the worst, with impatient officials giving hurried instructions in heavily-accented English, and scolding if passengers didn't understand. I was sent back through a second time to remove my camera from the bag (and to be scolded by the agent), and was patted down a second time coming back through the x-ray, which had green-lighted me both times. It made me wonder if this was a reaction to the extra scrutiny that Arab passengers receive from our airport security in the USA."
Pros: "Cabin crew service was very good. Flght with Airbus 350 plane was really comfortable and quite. They put extra care for kids and babies and all of kids get gift bag with toys, chocolate etc. which makes everyone happy Especially kids. I personally like to watch new release movies and enjoyed to pass my flight time."
Cons: "Their south indian food was testless in both inbound and outbound flight from Philadelphia to doha. Snacks was good but meal definitely they should have better to change it."
Pros: "Entertainment system good,"
Cons: "Boarding was late, seating very cramped."
Cons: "Small chairs"
Pros: "Good movie selection, very friendly crew"
Cons: "On my flight from PHL to KHI, both legs had perfect head/necks that were adjustable. But on the flight from DOH to PHL, the neck rest was awful - it only adjusted vertically (unlike the other flights), and it was too thick so that my neck was in an extremely uncomfortable position for 14 hours - not fun!"
Cons: "Poor service, long layovers with not enough lounge space. Misguiding customer service"
Pros: "The service on board is excellent"
Pros: "Lots of entertainment"
Cons: "Originally I was assigned a wonderful seat but then I was put in the back by window it was very cramped and noisy. The flight stuff was mediocre and the food was not that good either. Big difference from the flight over"
Pros: "Incredibly attentive service"
Cons: "Internet service didn’t work. Also waiting for can refund because of unannounced 12 hour delay on the outbound flight."
Cons: "We had booked the flight together and they ended up putting us in different rows and couldn’t fix that. We travelled 14 hours apart :("
Cons: "The flight attendant dropped a suitcase on my head when I was sleeping. I had terrible headache, nauseous, and dizzy with some really uncomfortable neck pain. The staff tried to get me to take medicines that I could not read for nauseous but I would not. They said they were prescribed by a doctor! What doctor. The flight was the longest worst ever! 14 hours - nothing to eat or drink! In addition, the head flight attendant said the baggage compartment over my head was a problem as it opens all the way down and bags fall easily out. The bag was easily 30 pounds and landed directly on my head. I suffered a concussion."

Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "The security process to board the plane had no order. Stood in line while people after me was able to board the plane. When it was my turn, I was randomly selected for additional security screening."
Pros: "The crew was excellent in their mannerisms, efficiency, service and never ending smiles."
Cons: "The flight was not overly crowded and many of the passengers were seated with three people per set of seats while others were seated individually and able to spread out with much more comfort. I felt that when the flight crew saw this they could have made everyone much more comfortable by switching people to two people per row thus giving them more room especially on such a long flight."
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "There was a rude counter staff when we checked in in Singapore."
Pros: "Excellent service everyone was generous"
Pros: "Flight was not crowded, room to stretch out. Food and service was good."
Cons: "Difficult boarding procedure."
Cons: "Seat cushion was hard for long flight time!"

Cons: "The headphone jack on my entertainment system was defective."
Pros: "I was promised Wifi on all flights when I called customer service and I was frustrated I only had it on 2 out of the 4 flights ... And the connection was bad. I needed to work and planned on it after I heard the wifi was available for purchase."
Cons: "Did not like there was no wifi when I was told there was. The food was good and the service as well... It was comfortable !"
Cons: "- The Flight was canceled to fly directly from DOH to PHL.... Our party was put on a transfer at ORD...added additional 8 hours of layover... flight itself wasn't terrible... but the bathroom situation could be hectic..."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Again, the flight attendants were so sweet and nice and hospitable."
Cons: "The sitting quarters were so cramped. Maybe next time I'll save an additional $500 to go up a class but it was so smashed. It did not leave room for me to use the desk to eat or use my laptop."
Cons: "Flight got delayed and missed short connection in Doha. Had to fly to JFK instead. No compensation."
Pros: "Brand new plane, everything clean and working, crew friendly, smooth flight"
Pros: "Shared a row with three seats with another person, middle seat was free! New entertaiment screens."
Cons: "Food was average to less."
Pros: "The head flight attendant in the economy cabin was nice, after a bit."
Cons: "My entertainment system stopped working and all they could offer me was something farther back in the cabin. As a Gold privilege member, I choose to sit at the front of the cabin, and yet the entertainment system was unavailable. I wish Qatar Airways could compensate me for my unfavorable experience."
Pros: "Excellent service in flight"
Cons: "If you have issues during the booking or pre-flight stage Qater Airways isn't always customer friendly. It's a bit hit and miss based on the customer service agent who picks up your call."

Pros: "Changi. Wow.."
Cons: "Aircraft rather not modern."
Pros: "Very disappointed in the service provided"
Cons: "Contact the customer for flight changes instead of doing it automatically for the customer. I woke up to text messages letting me know my flight was changed from 0635 to 2135. I had major plans for the next few days and couldn’t afford to take that risk."
Pros: "The luggage space was good."
Pros: "seat and flight were great , smooth ride as well"
Cons: "breakfast could be better but was fine"
Pros: "Everything’s was fine."

Cons: "Nothing I could tell at the moment....."
Pros: "Was good service onboard"
Cons: "They could be upgraded my whole itinerary and not just 1/4 of the trip"
Cons: "Flight delayed out of Singapore. Airline should have at least notified earlier so passengers can arrive later to the airport Cabin crew on board rude ‘sorry i’m too busy now’ [just asking for a glass of water] Plane then sitting at HK airport waiting for open gate Arrival timed just perfectly to prevent passengers from catching the last airport express train"
Pros: "Boarding quick n fast"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable, leg n body, space too small n my left seat is a big sizes man , right seat is a very fat man , I can’t even move . my seat don’t have headset n request one , but until reached Hong Kong I still didn’t get it n I m in plane for 4hrs doing nothing, no games no songs n no shows. Thank for your concern . Really appreciate."
Cons: "seat cushion for the back is too hard."
Cons: "Nice flight nice"
Cons: "Flight delayed as always"
Pros: "- Good food - Good choice of entertainment - Comfortable seats - Polite staff & well organized"
Pros: "I am a wheelchair user and Cathay Pacific took excellent care of me"
Pros: "The new plane"
Pros: "The plane was great Boeing 350 I think great entertainment system, comfortable seats, and the Singapore new terminal 4 is wounderful"
Pros: "I am frequent air traveler that logs about 100k miles a year and this is the first time I felt like writing a review about an airline. I traveled with my 4 year old son on this trip. Excellent service, high quality food options and flight amenities. I really enjoyed the food as did my son. My son left his backpack behind on the first leg and the airline staff retreived it and delivered it to the lounge in less than 15 minutes. I was astounded and had almost given up on seeing the bag again, given my experience with other airlines in the past. This is going to be airline of choice for future trips!"
Pros: "I enjoyed the good check in service, and the excellent lounges. As always, the overall level of service on Cathay was good."
Cons: "The utterly appalling seats on Cathay's old B777s are unacceptable for a premium airline. Non-reclining economy seats which are desperately uncomfortable for any flight of more than 1 hour, and completely unsuitable for an overnight flight. These planes desperately need a refit. Best avoided until this has been completed. The flight was overbooked, and the cabin crew seemed stressed and very busy. As a long term frequent flyer with CX, this was a very disappointing experience."
Cons: "3h delay on the way in 1h delay on the way back"
Pros: "Food and drinks, service of the crews."
Cons: "Flight delay of 20 mins."
Pros: "Flight from Toronto to Hong Kong was late departing due to a snow storm. Most on the flight missed connections. Cathay staff were waiting on the jetway with plans for everyone that missed their connection to Sydney. Just impeccable organisation and service."
Pros: "Cathay Pacific were great slight delay in Singapore due to incoming flight. A350 plane wonderful quiet and decent space in economy. Food and entertainment was good and well time food serving."
Cons: "Arriving Hong Kong and getting a taxi... first impressions count and Taxis are rude and a rip off. Not what you expect from a renowned international airport"
Pros: "Efficiency of Operations, efficiency of service and attitude to pleasing customers, great choice of movies, excellent aircraft"
Cons: "For two hours flight food was adequate"
Pros: "Newer plane"
Cons: "6,5 hrs delayed"
Pros: "I did get an upgrade and saw a pleasant movie"
Cons: "There were no immigration forms on board. When I asked for one, the hostess said there had been an announcent Mayybe there was one in mandarin but certainly not in english. A senior hostess cam later to apologize zaying the reason was that there were new forns since 1 Dec when leaving the plane, everyone was given old forms! All very unptofessional..."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the flight was comfortable. There were two service representatives to take me on the golf cart from my gate in Terminal 1 when I landed to the bus departing from Terminal 2 to Terminal 4 where my connection was. It was unexpected, but saved a lot of stress based on the distance I had to travel within the airport to make the connecting flight."
Cons: "They recently moved the Cathay Pacific flights to the new Terminal 4 in Changi in Singapore. The connecting distance was significant to get from the Terminal 1 gate to the bus leaving from Terminal 2 to get to Terminal 4. Changi is usually VERY efficient, but this was a real inconvenience to not have direct transport from T1 to T4. Also, the lines for Cathay are not properly sorted by First/Business and all status frequent flyers. There were no ropes or anything organizing the queue, so there were well over 150 people lined up for the priority boarding with no clear queue. At that point, there is no priority. Time to get better organized."
Pros: "Comfortable seats - good entertainment"
Cons: "4-5 minutes of commercials before being able to watch the movie on the plane."
Pros: "On time Nice crew Good service"
Pros: "super comfortable seats, complete amenities (pillows, blankets, TV and a plug to charge your devices). flights are also on time and the food is great! I've been flying through budget airlines until now; although I flew economy with Cathay, the flight experience felt very premium."
Pros: "Flight personnel go out of there way to smile and make you feel wanted on this flight and the previous flight enroute to Singapore from Hong Kong. Food was OK, too."
Pros: "Most crew very helpful. Great movie and music selection."
Cons: "Middle row every time and difficult to get out.(economy). Out of the Asian meal again for people in the back of the plane. Was unable to check in on line for some reason, but taken care of at airport."
Pros: "The movie"
Cons: "More than 1 hr delay. I had ordered kosher food. They came to show it but it never appeared later. I complained and they broight it: the starter was frozen solid. Eventually i had a fish plate. Not too bad..."
Pros: "Very enjoyable flight. Plenty of legroom in the bulk seating. Service was very good and food was OK."
Cons: "Seats in economy are not that thick therefore not comfortable to sit for a long time."
Pros: "Great food, free, and also free snacks, lovely staff, extra pillows and blankets provided. Roomy, loved it, plan to use then again !"
Pros: "Upgraded to business class 2 twice. Great service and caring staff"
Cons: "It's not pleasant traveling in economy which is true for all airlines now a days."
Pros: "Midnight flight, so did not request anything. Normal."
Cons: "Was informed flight delay after we've reached airport for check in. Which is 1 1/2 earlier from departure time. Should have inform earlier. New scheduled time 2.05am, but can only board at 2.10am, so flight timing delayed beyond 2.05am."
Pros: "The food and service"
Pros: "Went up and down as planned."
Cons: "Late departure due to storms results in late arrival. Seat didn't work as expected. USB charger didn't work and interfered with the headset."
Cons: "Those economy seats can only fit a child comfortably."
Pros: "Crew/staff very professional,"
Pros: "Boarding and security is very efficient at Changi - other airports should take note."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room, comfortable seats, and great service on the plane!"
Pros: "Reboot shut my system down for a bit. Rebooting restored ok"
Pros: "After being unexpectedly upgraded to premium economy at the gate, I was very pleasantly surprised to find that the seats were even more comfortable than I would have expected for this section. The reclining pitch was excellent - even for the people sitting behind. There is a hassock-like panel to elevate one's legs about 45 degrees. Almonds instead of peanuts, a menu option with a main of a nice piece of steak (that could be cut with an airline knife!), amenity kit... Very happy passenger."
Pros: "Sing-Hong Kong seating comfort."
Cons: "Terrible food on Cathay now. All meals were barely edible."
Pros: "amazing and great customer service"
Cons: "The entertainment did not work good the entire flight"
Cons: "Seats in economy were very uncomfortable, almost no cushion in any of the seats or the seat backs. Would not recommend Lufthansa for long haul."
Pros: "Crew was very good. Food was OK."
Cons: "Individual space was tight made worse by some inconsiderate people who put their seats as far back as possible. This should be regulated."
Pros: "Nothing in particular stands out about our flight. We've flown many airlines, Aeroflot, British Air, Delta, Iceland Air and KLM recently. Lufthansa was right in there with the middlet of the pack, with the exception of Iceland Air, which would be at the bottom, but they make no pretenses. The seats, even in the basic economy, which we had,reclined and were comfortable; good legroom. Food and drink offerings were standard. Amounts were small, but everything was the right temperature. Restrooms were clean and well equipped. Movie offerings, not many newer releases. Nothing like Sky news, so you couldn't check weather or current events. Crew was courteous and attentive,"
Cons: "Boarding at Frankfort left much to be desired. First off, the equipment was not ready; we waited 45 min. to board after we got to the gate (early) and due to turbulence over the Atlantic, the pilots could not make up the time. We are senior citizens. We, along with about 25 others in our category, responded to the call for us to get in line to board, stand for 30 min. The gate personnel did not provide any information that boarding was NOT imminent at that point, so you had to stand up to keep your place. Finally, once the boarding for people needing assistance began, we got to choose between using 2 flights of stairs (a faster way to get into the plane) or an elevator to board the plane. (Hello! We have trouble with things like stairs; don't you know that?) The elevator accommodated one wheelchair and 2 or 3 people at a time. More waiting in the jetway to get down to the plane! The whole boarding process took 90 min. from the time we stood up to the time they closed the doors. Bad grades for the the cleaning crew making us wait so long, for the gate personnel for keeping us in the dark and the disorganized process boarding. Nobody cared about our discomfort, not what we would have expected from LH. Consequently, we've revised our opinion of Luthansa. Maybe next time we'll take BA."

They than reclined the seat back and my seat was broken do I asked them to put the seat forward and they ignored me. I informed the cabin crew that they weren't being considerate after all I gave up my seat to them. The cabin crew told me I could leave my 4 yest old and 3 year old alone and move to a new seat."

Pros: "The crew was nice about everything. On being asked at the airport to at least change my seat on the second leg flight the personnel did it without a fuss."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic. The plane was clean/as to be expected. Overall, the flight was comfortable (again, as to be expected)."
Cons: "Boarding was slow and unorganized. "Dinner" meal could have been served earlier and it could have been more filling (we were so hungry!) There could have been more opportunities to get water. They ran out of water bottles."

Pros: "Short and Smooth Flight"
Pros: "I liked everything about the flight. The flight crew was nice. They were considerate and cheerful."
Pros: "Entertainet options were very good and very diverse."

Cons: "The food on this flight was not good."
Pros: "how do i get credit for the miles travelled? who are you alligned with?"
Pros: "Being a short person, the seats are very comfortable . My feet could touch and rest on the floor. It appears funny but it makes a big difference to a 4 feet and 11 inches person travelling long distances. Overall my experience with LH is excellent."
Cons: "The noodle chicken had too much tomato sauce; otherwise, everything was very good."
Cons: "The food was bad"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and helpful as usual. No issues at all."
Cons: "Really cannot complain about anything!"
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: "More legroom please"
Cons: "Seats are terrible. Crew didn't ask if I wanted to drink anything with the meal. Seemed like a budget flight."
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: "Lovely staff"
Pros: "The price!"
Cons: "Internet connection."
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: "Comfortable flight. Staff were friendly, helpful and accomodating. Food was delicious."
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."
Pros: "Who would guess - the food."
Cons: "reading lights were never fixed during flight."
Cons: "I would never book a ticket through BA ever! Paid business class and my luggage got forgotten in Heathrow through transit. No one knows anything about it. I have arrived to san Francisco with no language at all!!!!"
Pros: "Quick flight and comfortable"
Pros: "Hard working crew and lots of movies to watch. Food was much better than the Philadelphia outbound trip."
Cons: "Seats weren't very comfortable"
Pros: "Great cabin staff. More food and various times than I've gotten with other airlines."
Pros: "Good size seats"
Cons: "The crew were rude and dismissive"
Pros: "Wine fantastic, crew fantastic, comfortable seats in biz on A380. Food selection diabolical"
Cons: "Food was awgul"
Pros: "In flight entertainment is awesome but we left an hour late! Love BA though, wish American Airlines would take a note."
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 team. good snacks. great room."
Pros: "The entertainment (TV in each seat) was great. The food was outstanding (chicken with risotto and beet salad), and so was the service. This was the best British Airways flight I've ever been on!"
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 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"
Cons: "Changan T1 is awful. BA god poor. Otherwise fight to time and uneventful. Passenger cabin in 777s feels squashed. Toilets barely cope."
Pros: "Flight was on time departing and early landing. There were plenty of movies to choose from and the food was good for airline food."
Cons: "Airlines in general need to do a better job of controlling the boarding process (using the groups to board) and controlling the amount of luggage people bring on. Peoples definition of a "personal item" are skewed."
Pros: "very friendly and helpful staff. by chance small upgrade to comfortable seats next to the emergency exit."
Cons: "no food, no entertainment system, no facility to charge cell phones."
Pros: "My itinerary said british airways but my plane was American so I missed my flight due to standing in the British airways line instead of American. This needs to be fixed."
Pros: "Free drinks and food when traveling overseas. Possibly cheaper flights than other airlines?"
Cons: "I got switched to American Airlines last minute, which is a sister company of British Airways, apparently. This was 1 of the 2 worst flights that I have ever been on, only second to my other booked flight for this trip home. This flight was 7+ hours long and it was nothing short of horrible. The seats were extremely uncomfortable and barely went back at all. The male flight attendant was clearly annoyed and was short with every person who would ask for anything. He would roll his eyes at every request by customers. At one point I saw him literally toss a sandwich into a customers lap because they were turned the other way and didn't hear him when he asked if they wanted one. There was no way to watch anything unless you had your own device and had downloaded it yourself prior to the flight."
Pros: "Full flight but I had two seats and a delightful Ghanaian seat mate"
Cons: "Being dumped in Phillie with canceled E.g. To Burlington Vt"
Cons: "Non-stop from Madrid to Philadelphia was canceled apparently because of a computer problem and then I was rerouted through Amsterdam with an extremely short connectios which in turn meant that baggage did not make it and was opened and damaged !!! BA clearly at fault. BA Reservations agent suggested to enter a complaint"
Cons: "Too much Indian based food....too much curry....."
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: "Safe flight arrived early!!!"
Cons: "Crew seemed non friendly. Did only what was required. Seats were tight And very cramped."
Pros: "The flight crew was very courteous and helpful, and made the entire experience very pleasant."
Cons: "The boarding process was a bit confusing. We were that the gate closed at a certain time, but there was no information when you were waiting at the gate at that time. Once boarding started, it was confusing as to which line you should wait it."
Pros: "Flight was operated by American Airlines, seats were average, entertainment good."
Pros: "Food was decent"
Cons: "Could not watch movies due to the audio was not working in a few rows and I was sitting in one."
Cons: "Could not check in online"
Pros: "Not bad experience on board"
Cons: "Buses to load and unload a 777? Is this a joke?"
Cons: "We booked on Kayak for a British Airways flight international--but it was a bait and switch. We ended up flying on American Airlines--the WORST! And our whole reason for booking British Airways was to avoid any US airline... We paid a premium, plus Kayak then sends you to a third party processor that charges you another $100 booking fee! American Airlines was terrible! Not even an entertainment center on an international flight (OLD PLANE THAT SHOULD BE TAKEN OUT OF SERVICE!). We will NEVER use KAYAK again."
Pros: "Flight from Venice to philly was good besides the fact it was delayed 2 hours"
Cons: "The 2 hours delay"
Cons: "This flight was operated by American Airlines. The Contour of the seat back is very uncomfortable. I find this on all American Airline planes. Food was ok, prepared well but lacked flavor."
Pros: "The plane had quite a bit of leg room, more than my flight from Denver to London. The movie selection was nice. Free wine and beer is always a plus. They gave a nice sized cup of coffee, but the coffee was terrible. The crew was nice."
Cons: "The head phone jack only allowed sound in one ear. The food wasn't great, and the expectations were low."
Cons: "The jet was freezing. I had two blankets on and was still shivering for the entire flight."
Pros: "Friendly and professional staff."
Pros: "Food and movies"
Cons: "Bathroom cleanliness. Entertainment system."
Pros: "Terrific entertainment choices I couldn't get in the USA. They served lots of fluids throughout the flight. This helped everyone."
Cons: "Bathrooms got a little messy by the end of the flight."
Pros: "On time, Smooth ride, My fellow travelers were all good little cows and bulls.. Alright maybe 1 or 2 jack asses. but for the most part the herd pleasant."
Cons: "This was a AA Flight, Seat was broken. So I was told to put my seat back in the upright position times. Witch woke me up witch pissed me off! Or course the lady behind me was pissed also. Since my head was in her lap for 10 hours. Of course she did mind the first 10 minuets. :)"
