Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was great !!!"
Cons: "Seating in upper class is uncomfortable and bedding is not fresh."
Pros: "the crew was very polite and professional."

Pros: "Sharp good atention in counter"
Cons: "Seats were tight."
Pros: "Movies. Meals. Wine. Freq"
Pros: "Pilot was great— we don’t thank them enough for a smooth and safe arrival. Plane was great. Ammenities were given (such as ear plugs etc)"
Cons: "Crew members are a bit bland and lack customer service, but I noticed that as a whole in Australia (slow service/not really interactive or communicative & very quick to make comments and leave) not sure if they just hate Americans based on the media or what. One crew member cut in line at the restroom when there was 3 of us waiting to go. Another told me my husband couldn’t receive his meal because he was napping and then he quickly walked away— Yet i received mine on the flight coming to Australia when my husband asked for me? Sanitation between flights should be more strict-my headphones were opened which lead me to believe my pillow wasn’t changed either, since one had a case and one didn’t."
Pros: "The flight felt so short, service was amazing, food was good. Great overall experience."
Pros: "We paid for ecomony x which gave us priority check in and boarding plus first meal. Very impressed, we had an exit row seat and the flight attendant who sat opposite us was extremely friendly."
Cons: "I wish the economy x seats weren’t located next to the toilets... it’s pretty bothersome with the noise, smells and light emitted"
Pros: "The food was okay"
Cons: "The gate was Jane without announcement"
Pros: "Service, meals, friendly and attentive FAs"
Pros: "Fast boarding, not a crowded flight, ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Paid extra for my check in bag."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and attentive"
Cons: "The entertainment system was not good. The touch screen was not calibrated and very hard to select and scroll through. The flight was over a hour late so we missed our connection. Got rebooked okay, but after traveling for 18 hours having to wait three extra hours was a drag."
Pros: "Great, friendly, professional crew, clean comfortable plane. Loved that full dinner and baggage and wine was included in an economy class overnight from DC to London as well as breakfast. Best flight in a long time, will definitely fly again."
Cons: "the tv screen's touch screen capabilities could use an upgrade, it was a hassle to navigate, not very sensitive to touch."
Pros: "Fast boarding and nice staff. Food selection was ok"
Cons: "One item missing from menu (unavailable). Issues with entertainment system. Bathrooms lacked moisturiser which is always very helpful on long flights where the air is dry"
Cons: "Older media entertainment screen with hard to use touch interface."
Pros: "Lovely food and staff. Lots of food."
Cons: "The seat pocket in front of me was broken. I didn't want to make a fuss but one would have thought during checks pre-flight that should have been noticed and rectified. I was flying with my family including my 4 yr old and we had lots of toys to keep her entertained but had no where to put them apart from on our seats and tables when we were allowed to have them down."
Cons: "the food selection did not meet my diet restrictions. Found it hard to avoid due to hunger over the duration"
Pros: "Nothing. The whole experience was horrible."
Cons: "I didn't make it to Siem Reap because the first leg of the trip from IAD to London was cancelled by Virgin Atlantic after it was fully boarded. The excuse was that a flight attendant had food poisoning and was unable to fly and so the entire flight was cancelled. The Virgin team seemed unconcerned and showed NO sense of urgency to try and get people rebooked. Their solution was to rebook everyone on an evening flight the next day. If a passenger was only going to London, that was probably fine. But for people with connecting flights -- or like me with multiple connecting flights -- that wasn't acceptable."
Cons: "The crew was rude."
Pros: "The crew was the best part of my experience, super nice and accomodating"
Cons: "the wifi had subpar performance"
Pros: "Crew was very nice helpful and attentionate Entertainment had plenty of variety maybe not so many new movies but enough to find one you have not seen or classic you could watch again Food was good"
Cons: "We weighted our hand luggage at the counter and then they ask again during boarding little confusing"
Pros: "Efficient, friendly, on-time!"
Pros: "Met expectations."
Cons: "Things out of your control - time !!"
Cons: "A plane from 1960? No entertainment center!"
Cons: "During my flight from LAX to LHR I requested (pre-booked) a special meal (Asian Vegetarian). During the flight I was told there was no such request in their records and therefore I had to stay hungry for the entire duration of the flight. During my return flight from LHR to LAX the in flight entertainment system for my seat was not functional. I requested it to be reset several times and in spite of the hostess resetting it several times, it did not function. I had to stay without an entertainment system during the entire flight. This was my first time travel with Virgin Atlantic. I may never fly Virgin Atlantic again."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly, and helpful. I also liked that the exit row that I was given had more than enough leg room, the dinner was really good for airplane food and snacks were great also. The attendant that I had for my section also told me that all food and drinks were free so they gave me a few extra adult drinks here and there which is a plus for how long the flight was going to be. The movie selection is great also having some on there that are still in theaters is a huge plus."
Cons: "The boarding process seemed way out of order, they made so many mistakes and nobody knew what to do, then you have the pushy passengers that are sitting coach getting mad that you're boarding before them. Breakfast left me wanting something else, lets just say this if you are given the choice of something vs french toast, take the something."
Cons: "Food was awful. Sorry. Breakfast was unrecognizable. Landed hungry."
Pros: "Did not take the flight in the end"
Cons: "My first leg flight was delayed and I booked through kayak on two different airlines and the first airline did not communicate with the second airline so 5 passengers ran to make the change and arrived 1 min after the jetbridge to get on the plane was pulled away. It was incredible frustrating and could have very easily been avoided with communication from the airlines"
Pros: "courteous attendants"
Cons: "Aircraft amenities. Small 737 for a long international flight. Waiting for busses in both Bali and Sydney."
Pros: "My flight was delayed boarding, Entertainment wasn't exciting oppose to other Virgin flights I have taken in previous years. Food wasn't great. I had teriyaki chicken with rice and I left it. Big dislike - when I was checking in online I found some economy seats I couldn't allocate for my seating due to additional charge applies. I think this is very off putting as I have been a Virgin member for years and it is very disappointing."
Cons: "I liked the Airbus carrier which had only two seats (window and Isle) on each sides oppose to three. It felt more comfortable."
Pros: "The crew were excellent."
Cons: "Seats were ridiculously uncomfortable. The seat cushions were worn and had no padding. Very few movie, Show, music and game choices to choose from. The audio input didn't work in my seat. Major fail for a 13+ hour flight."
Pros: "The planes are really cool and seats were very comfortable. The part about phone/tablet holder in front of passenger is awesome. Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Vegetarian food selection could be better, need more content in movie selection"
Pros: "On time, everything normal."
Cons: "Seat space so small that my knees were up against the next seat, even without it tilting back."
Pros: "I liked the food and refreshments and the on flight entertainment was good.."
Cons: "I didn't like the boarding process.every other flight I've been on they board plane by rows.on this flight everyone was boarding at same time which was annoying and held up the boarding process.."
Pros: "The crew was great with updates. Checking in was a bit confusing though as not all the crew knew what was up. It was a very crowded day so it was bound to be a bit rough. Of my last four flights to London Virgin Atlantic was the best!"
Cons: "Heathrow was a bit confusing and it took a moment to get my bearings. The crew was a bit disorganized but that seemed to get solved quickly."
Pros: "Easy check in and boarding."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and poor food."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Was denied the seat with extra legroom that my husband had paid for. One of my suitcases (zipper) opened on the conveyor belt, maybe it was tossed?"
Pros: "Was a comfy flight thanks to not having anyone sitting next to me. If someone wouldve been next to me it wouldnt have been as nice because the seats are too bunched for international travel."
Cons: "My seat wouldnt recline properly. There were limited food options for non pork eaters. No outlets for power. How can you operate an international flight with nothing provided for those who need to charge their devices after some time. Not a smart design move."
Cons: "My video monitor didn't work so I couldn't watch movies, asked the crew twice to help and they never did. Then to top off a terrible 10 hour flight with no entertainment, my bag never made it. Worst experience ever"
Pros: "Virgin gave everyone meal vouchers to use at the airport during the 5 hr. delay. Also, they still offered a meal on the plane."
Cons: "I couldn't get the inflight entertainment to work. I wish they would offer devices to borrow on the plane."
Cons: "I found the seats on this Virgin Atlantic A340 flight from LHR (London Heathrow) to LAX (Los Angeles), an eleven hour flight, to be unacceptable. The seats were very crowded. I am six feet tall, and was very uncomfortable all during the flight. I could not sit with my knees together. I had to spread my knees to sit comfortably. Holding that position for eleven hours was very uncomfortable. Anyone taller than me would have even more trouble. Also, every seat has a very large box underneath, I presume for the audio/video system. This is a terrible location. There is very little room to stow anything. But much worse, I couldn't straighten my right leg. All-in-all, I found the seat situation totally unacceptable. I will likely never fly Virgin Atlantic again because of this."
Pros: "There was no food or entertainment, but for such a short flight that's fine"
Cons: "It's so confusing when they list Virgin and Delta interchangeably, when you're not exactly sure which you're going to get. And in my experience, there is a huge difference between the two, so I prefer to know exactly which airline will be servicing me. Just be more clear in listing on flight info. This was not a Virgin flight, it was a Delta one."
Pros: "Wasn't overcrowded, the food and service were great"
Cons: "They ran out of beer!"
Pros: "Great service, comfortable and punctual"
Pros: "a very good experience Felt as if the crew cared"
Pros: "Courteous flight attendants; good cockpit crew"
Cons: "Delays kept getting longer. On the plane for three hours before takeoff. Seat very uncomfortable -- reclining function didn't work, and no extra space -- and had paid extra for a "comfort" seat."
Pros: "The crew were wonderful."
Pros: "Keep up the good work. The crew was amazingly hospitable. I felt right at home. THANKS"
Cons: "I would suggest James Bond be made available, It seems appropriate. However I have no complaint."

Cons: "Nothing needs to be corrected"
Pros: "Very attentive staff"
Cons: "I have no complaints"
Pros: "Very attentive and engaging crew."
Cons: "really nothing!"

Pros: "Crew and all folks. I had not flown Delta for a while. Based on this flight, I’ll put Delta as a first option in future plans."
Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly and helpful. The drink package for comfort trip was fantastic and worth it."
Cons: "There was zero entertainment inflight and logging onto Wi-Fi was very difficult. I would rather have had free Wi-Fi and a screen to watch movies/games on rather than or in addition to the drinks."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Thermostat broke, wi fi didn’t work. Temp 60 degrees entire trip. Sucked"
Pros: "The crew was okay. Seat was uncomfortable. Fold down table was broken."
Cons: "Delayed several times. switched to a later flight hoping that flight would not be delayed. That flight was delayed. I had to sit on the plane for over an hour before we took off. Didn’t make it to Chattanooga until almost12 am. hoping to fly delta for next trip to Dominican Rep. but now I’m unsure"
Pros: "Crew was so friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "My suitcase arrived damaged."
Pros: "Bags were waiting on Carousel"
Cons: "Slightly delayed due to incoming flight delayed"
Pros: "Delta as always top notch!"
Cons: "Our itinerary was canceled"
Cons: "Flight was late."
Cons: "I had window seats on all flights and was boarded after those in middle/aisle seats 3 out of 4 times. Less legroom in the cheap seats. High whining pitch on speaker during announcements on last leg."
Pros: "The crew was very polite and accommodating."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and tight."
Pros: "First class flight attendant shantee was fantastic. Breakfast was strange menu...but tssted ok."
Cons: "Better menu choice."
Cons: "Better screens for in-flight movies. More legroom or upgrade options."
Pros: "All ok"
Cons: "Even vegetarian Hindu food was ordered over the phone. We're presented non veg food. When asked about the non veg food we were told that we dint order. Lie right away. Alitalia members showed worst and discrimination based behavior. Very rude. Won't travel on Alitalia in future"
Pros: "Early and middle seat was open!"
Cons: "Coffee tasted like fish. :("
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "The flight crew were great"
Cons: "No chicken sandwich."
Pros: "Short flight! Crew nice enough!"
Cons: "Boarding seemed slightly delayed"
Pros: "Good flight. Organized. Friendly flight attendants. I like Delta."
Cons: "Paid for priority seats, but weren't offered the option for my two free drinks due to the flight being short distance."
Pros: "Got me to my destination, just not comfortably"
Cons: "Seating is ridiculously cramped and overhead storage is small"
Pros: "Good staff, plenty of room, comfortable flight, smooth flight"
Cons: "Some passengers behind me didn’t get snacks and drink"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "In SLC they boarded by row numbers and not zones. Weird..."
Pros: "The fact that there was a screen for movie selections and a charging port for my phone and the flight attendants were super nice"
Pros: "We were early, I had free Wifi, I love Delta!"
Pros: "My flight was great. Boarding was easy and the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "My flight got cancel two days in a row due to outrage power in atlanta."
Pros: "Quick boarding/unboarding."
Cons: "Wouldn't allow me on earlier flight, when there was room, without change fee"
Cons: "Whatever hack airline you are contracting with to do shuttle flights is terrible. Both the flight itself and the customer handling. If I ever see the option "operated by endeavor air" I am avoiding at all costs."
Pros: "The flight was very on-time and it reached the destination even earlier than expected."
Pros: "Plane and flight were ok"
Cons: "The restaurant in CHS took 15 minutes to tell me they didn't have what I'd ordered thereby denying me the chance to a real meal all day. I wish they'd put real meals back on the flights"
Cons: "Boarding wasn't very prompt, but went smoothly once it began."
Pros: "I paid only $100 more round trip to DTW from SLC then I would have with other carriers, minus the hassle of connecting flights and paying fees that they don't tell you about up front (like $25 for a carry-on bag, oh and a another $12 per leg for a window seat). My experience, like my previous Delta experiences was absolutely enjoyable. From the quick boarding, super friendly gate agents, and flight crew, to the free on board entertainment, Delta has won me over once again. Oh and did I mention how great it is to board a flight, relax and watch a good movie, take a small nap, and deplane at your destination! Awesome!!"
Pros: "New comfort seats. Nice staff. Pilot kept us continuously updated."
Cons: "Unclear info on upgrade [priority boarding when upgraded?]. Inability to upgrade ticket made using mileage points or upgrade at counter at gate."
Pros: "Very friendly flight attendants. The plane was full but the attendants were excellent."
Pros: "They had some weather in atlanta. So they drove us out to the runway and then we sat for 45 minutes with the engines off waiting to leave. I guess it is nice that they want to keep you safe. After missing our connector - they did put us up in a hotel overnignt. However we still had to pay extra for taxi back, parking an extra day at the airport, and extra meals. Oh - and the extra trip to detroit..."
Cons: "So after waiting 45 minutes on the tarmac - we left and headed to Atlanta. There we landed and waited because they had no gate for us. Then we finally got off the pane and ran to our connector which left without us. We were told they don't hold the plane for less than ten people. So the four of us don't matter. We sat and sat waiting...and then lost another day due to travel."
Pros: "People were nice."
Cons: "I didn't like having my seat assigned at the gate. I booked this flight months ago, but yet somehow I got the very last row of the plan. Which is the noisiest location with the least amount of room. On the flight back they put me in the second to last row, even though there were about 10 seats empty scattered throughout the plan. Made no sense to me."
Pros: "Landed safely"
Cons: "Last row of a cramped 18 row plane with seats that did not recline!"
Cons: "I drove 5 hours to get to the airport and unfortunately ended up delayed because of traffic and slow shuttles from parking. I arrived 1 hour before the flight, but security was so slow I didn't get to the gat until 10 minutes before arrival. There were no gate agents present and despite banging on the gateway door and other Delta agents at the adjacent gate, no one helped me. I can only surmise that they had already given away our seats, which were award tickets, GAINED BY BEING A LOYAL DELTA CUSTOMER. The gate agents were unapologetic and useless at rebooking, and I bought a ticket from Southwest instead. As i was trying to get to my sister's wedding, and repeatedly told the agents this, their behavior was particularly abominable. DELTA, YOU'VE LOST A LOYAL CUSTOMER."
Pros: "Good frew"
Cons: "Large dog on flight. In the aisle. Seats very short."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Tiny seats"
Cons: "Not a lot of leg room"
Pros: "On time. No problems."
Cons: "Hard to understand what group was being called to board. No systematic lineup, just crowding around."
Pros: "Crew is excellent, polite and personal!"
Cons: "Plane is super old and outdated. Comfort seat is not, comfortable, very tight. TV screen is not good quality, with the old controls on a handset. No touch, no 1/8 inch audio jack (it has the old 3 holes one). Wifi for streaming freezes every other second. Just make a face lift to the plane, everything else is good."
Pros: "Loved the smooth ride."
Cons: "Bathroom was pretty nasty"
Cons: "Delay due to strike"
Pros: "the crew was wonderful, we got a nice Wrap and water, wine or coffee for free, not all airlines serve it anymore, we were on time and I got whatsapp message with updates of the flight"
Cons: "Flight got cancelled"
Cons: "Not being 1 hour late"

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

Cons: "This was the most narrow airplane seat I’ve ever experienced. So uncomfortable."
Cons: "We were told they were holding our flight, we ran 3 terminals and they’d already left."
Cons: "The website I booked on and the Delta phone line on the printed ticket said that I had baggage when it turns out that I did not according to the check in staff and they made me pay."
Cons: "I called for a crew member 5 times and waited 25 minutes for anyone to help me with just some water. I had to get up and go to the very back of the plane to ask for some water. The plane was hot and no air to be found. This was all after we had to get back off the plane before takeoff. It was terrib"
Pros: "The crew!!"
Pros: "Very attentive crew. Attended to needs immediately. Took a lot of time with each person when someone had something to say."
Cons: "The seat I had with no seats in front of me was very small. Much smaller than the other economy seats because the tray table and video screen were in the armrests. Paid extra for the legroom by ended up losing it side to side. Really had to squeeze into the seat."
Pros: "Face recognition was amazing"
Cons: "Too hot on plane"
Pros: "The crew was efficient. Flight left on time. Food and wine served."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "The attention and service!! Excellent. It was my birthday and KLM the head purser surprised me with 2 bottles of bubbles and a handwritten birthday card KlM and the crew of this flight thank you very much !"
Cons: "Nothing to say"
Pros: "Nice flight ...was comfortable travel ...good food.Thanks"
Cons: "No such things"
Cons: "KLM lost my luggage during the layover. My luggage didn't arrive even after the next flight to Prague. Customer service wouldn't give me any idea what flight my luggage would arrive on, nor would they tell me what time my luggage might be delivered to me."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled."
Pros: "Friendly in-flight personell"
Cons: "Approx. 1 hour delay, which was not the airline's fault (construction on runways)"
Pros: "Sound was broken on my TV set!"
Cons: "Called stewardess twice to assist. No response!"
Cons: "Our two hour connection in Paris became 30 minutes because Air France was late in leaving Washington. So our luggage didn't make to to KLM to Amsterdam. My poor rating was because the luggage handling was really poor. Lots of flights from Paris to Amsterdam (almost hourly), but my bag showed up 12 hours later. My wife's bag took 36 hours. And yes, we checked in together. There were lots of confusing messages"
Pros: "Friendly attendants. Decent food, and frequent snacks and beverages."
Cons: "No charging ports for electronic devices."
Pros: "Very friendly service!"
Pros: "Flight was on time and quick and comfortable"
Pros: "Wider seat than most business class"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"
Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."
Pros: "Everytime she passed she was hitting me or I had to hold my drink so that she wouldn't knock it off"
Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliability."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."
Pros: "Short, comfortable flight. Nothing special. Got us where we needed to be without incident."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet the min. characters."
Pros: "KLM fed a sandwich even though the flight was only 2 hours. The crew was pleasant. Getting through the Amsterdam airport to catch a connecting flight with only an hour to do so was no big deal. Airport staff was pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "Very friendly and the food and drinks never stopped and no additional charges, a very nice experience over the bargain airlines, free in-flight movies, and entertainment, no cost."
Cons: "No complaints."
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."
Pros: "Enough space good wine and on time"
Pros: "We love the flight all the way"
Pros: "captain was great."
Pros: "Was able to check in online, very convenient and easy to access site."
Cons: "I didn't go on this flight, unable to leave Seoul (to Beijing) with China Southern."
Pros: "KLM Is an impressive flying experience. We enjoyed the comfortable seats, the in-flight entertainment, and the food. The flight attendants are top notch as well."
Cons: "The only complaint I have regarding my most recent flight was the incredibly rude service staff whom we experienced at the front counter at check-in. After a harrowing cab ride to the airport in which our driver continuously ignored my request to follow the GPS insisting that he knew faster shortcuts, we arrived 40 minutes later than intended. Additionally he dropped us off at the wrong terminal such that we finally arrived at the KLM gate an hour later than we had planned. This was especially frustrating as we are traveling with two small children and made every effort to be punctual and leave early to be sure we got there with time to spare. Not the case today. All of that I could deal with, but when we arrived at the KLM counter, and I apologized to the attendant staff member that we were late and explained that our cab driver got lost, she responded by chastising us first in Spanish and then in broken English. She made sure to make it clear to us that it was our fault and we should not blame the Argentinian cabdriver. The cabdriver was not actually Argentinian, but that is totally besides the point. I was totally taken aback to be treated so rudely as a greeting at the airline counter. My wife share the same sentiment. Nothing like this has ever happened to us before. Thank God, every single airport personnel and of course KLM staff member on board was incredibly kind and accommodating of our children subsequent to this. It saved what otherwise could've been a terrible experience."
Pros: "Flight was quick, professional, friendly."
Pros: "Overall, good flight"
Pros: "Delays and no proper customer service."
Pros: "The service of the crew onboard"
Cons: "Entertainment not to many recent movies and the boarding process was a little bit confusing."
Cons: "One and a half hour delay on a 50 minute flight. Flight was operated by Cityjet on behalf of KLM. Never have I seen such bad customer service: from rude people at the bagage drop off to incompetent hostesses at the boarding gate."
Pros: "Food was relatively good"
Cons: "We had ourtrip from San Francisco to Amsterdam which is one of the longest flights ever, andthe entertainment system wasnt working, we kept on telling them several times but nothing happened and at the end they wereeven avoiding us. By the end of the trip when we were approaching Ams, a hostess came and she gave us a $25 dollar discountvoucher to be used in our next trip, this is totally not acceptable!"
Pros: "New plane, new seats, new entertainment system. All very goo to great. The dinner was above average in terms of taste but the breakfast was pretty ordinary."
Cons: "Breakfast food wasn't very good."
Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "Business is EconAnthro my seats with the middle seat open."
Cons: "Better seats."
Cons: "4 hs delay"

Cons: "old plane with bad customer service"
Cons: "Connecting flight was missed. Too short of time to pass through security and line-up"
Pros: "service was good"
Cons: "seats are too congested"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful, food was ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by roughly 5 hours, causing us to miss our connection and have to wait for the next flight. We missed a half day in Rome and instead spent over 8 hours waiting in airports. The seats were also terribly worn and uncomfortable."
Pros: "good service. crew speaks English."
Cons: "cost of baggage"
Cons: "Extremely unsatisfying, to the point of not wanting to fly BA again. If I had not had previous satisfaction with Kayak on other flights, I might not use it again. They my bags for 3 days and had hideous communication about it. Had no feeling that anyone could be reached about or that anyone cared at all. Late takeoff again. There was an impossible amount of time left under even the best curcumstances, to go from one flight to another, resulting in flight being missed and being sent to another city and losing my money on ground transport that was prepaid. The communication issue is the worst of it all. Massively frustrating."
Pros: "No delay, nice staff, had to check in handluggage because of small airplane it worked out perfectly."
Pros: "I slept. Pillow, blanket, clean disposable headrest cover Food was decent Way above average crew."
Cons: "Long boarding process. Broken headphone jack."
Cons: "I was seated at the emergency row. The staff has a policy of collecting the pillows and blankets during take-off from these seats. But they never gave them back to us afterward. Later when I wanted to go to sleep, they could not located these items."
Pros: "We made it safely. The Pilot was excellent in making sure the plane was safe and keeping us informed."
Cons: "We were a little late."
Pros: "Nice variety of movies to watch on personal screen. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Food too spicy and not British enough. Button on chair broken so unable to recline even a little on long flight. Luggage not transferred to final destination...stayed in London"
Cons: "BA lost one of my checked bags and made it impossible to get help. Called numbers over 30 hour period in both destination city and BA phone numbers for lost baggage and no one answered. I had to travel back to the airport counter to deal with agents that basically told me there were thousands of bags in the warehouse and that the bag May or May not eventually turn up."
Cons: "Arrived a day late and fly on an old plane"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. I found out as I was entering Nairobi Airport. The British Airways staff at JKIA were clueless regarding what to do with 200 passengers. It was chaotic, with no one appearing to know what options were available. It was a long night, and if my wife had not re-booked me on another flight out, I might still be there. Terrible customer service."
Pros: "A bit late getting started but very nice after that."
Cons: "Must you charge for tea?"
Cons: "The chair in front of mine was broken or worn out so that it declined alarmingly far. It felt like the gentleman in front me had his head in my lap. My tray table was also broken so that it listed dangerously and I had to prop it on my arm rest."
Pros: "Exceptional attentive staff! Frequently checked on you to see if you needed anything. Trans-Atlantic service is amazing."
Cons: "Liked everything but could have a better classic movie choice."
Pros: "The flight was great. Business class is the way to go if it’s in your budget. However, the British Airways photos of business class does not quite reflect reality. It’s just a regular seat with more leg room."
Cons: "It took forever for them to serve drinks and we are at the back of the plane I asked for a water and it took forever to get it and she was rude"
Pros: "Crew were great, food good : better business class than international BA!"
Cons: "Too many passengers with over size carry on"
Pros: "Movie snack, plenty of water, food quality, attendants personable and friendly!"
Pros: "That it was on schedule"
Cons: "Having to be told to check luggage when I merely took what I was allowed. I felt that I was targeted because female and possibly thought I would not raise objection."
Cons: "seats were tiny"

Pros: "A new low!"
Cons: "The only issue I had was having to check my bag. I didn't feel it was necessary."
Pros: "BA crew was amazing--friendly, courteous, helpful. There was always plenty of food--most of it good, and they certainly kept us hydrated with trays of juice. Free everything: wine, movies, music, etc"
Cons: "There was nothing different that could have been done. We had a 5 hour layover after our flight from Shannon. That was ok because we ate, shopped and generally used the time. But we were 1/1/2 hours late taking off, then had to wait to land because we were out of order for the gates. It turned into a 23 hour day."
Cons: "Flight attendant"

Cons: "The staff at check in and the gate agents were HORRIFIC!"
Cons: "Plane was late boarding, updates were not prompt."

Cons: "During the flight, I called the service button a few times and no one came. I don't mind going up and getting water, but it was a hassle being in a middle seat and asking my fiancé to let me out several times."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and staff was friendly. On board the service was great. All flight attendants were smiling, friendly and kept coming through the economy cabin with orange juice and water to make sure we were all well hydrated. We received lunch, movie snacks, and a mini pizza lunch. The only meal that wasn't great was the mini pizza."
Cons: "The only minor issue we had on this flight was that our entertainment units stopped playing movies 4 hours before we landed. The cabin crew tried resetting it a few times and tried everything they could to fix it, but it didn't work. They did compensate us for the inconvenience so that was nice."
Pros: "The food was very good. Tarragon chicken."
Cons: "Not large enough seats"
Pros: "we landed"
Cons: "flight had a two hours delay flight attendants were rude and obnoxious will never fly on british airways ever again they shouldnt be allowed to drive people let alone fly them london is just fog and ugly faces british airways' customer service is the equivalent of wisdom teeth: they exist but no one seems to know why they should delete their airline altogether"
Pros: "They closed boarding early"
Cons: "Horrible experiences Seat are uncomfortable. Spacing to tight until the passenger in back row of me did not allow me to move pull the seat back. I reported. Flight attendant moved me to the business seat. But flight attendant crews treated me like a refugee did not offer any service even a water"
Cons: "We sat at the gate after landing door at least 30 minutes waiting for cargo to be unloaded to keep the plane center of gravity within the correct tolerance. This was especially painful after such a long flight."

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The replacement plane was very old. The entertainment screen was actually smaller than my phone, with just 4 low definition movie selections that started at preset times. My phone had 45 HD movies that started whenever I wanted them to. Toilets were dirty and in poor condition."
Cons: "If the airlines was able to help finding my pierce that was missed at the security or the craft"
Pros: "Crew friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Delayed after boarding due to lightning ground stop. Had to deplane and reboard. Almost 2-hour delay because gate agent had to rebook several people on the spot."
Pros: "All the kind staff from checking in to leaving the airport.!! All well maintained and experienced to cover all very professional,"
Cons: "The variety of food items or snacks on the plane would be so wonderful. Even for purchase."

Cons: "Newer and atleast a midsize plane."
Pros: "Got to destination 30 min early"
Cons: "Free WiFi"
Cons: "Couldn’t understand a single thing she said! She mumbled everything and talk crazy fast!!!"
Pros: "Baggage was delivered to the carousel before passenger could get there. No waiting! Well done!"
Pros: "The stewardess was super nice! On time and no problems."
Cons: "Bad gate idea to have so many flights going off at once. Very confusing when the intercom would get cut off because another plane would start boarding."
Pros: "Efficient crew, knew their business, executed their functions well."
Cons: "Small planes are inherently less comfortable, but that just goes with the package. Nothing you can do about it."
Pros: "Small flight, lots of room despite being an older plane. Friendly staff"
Cons: "I do my best to avoid United because of the terrible service I seem to always receive, and this time was no different. After 3 hours of waiting for a delayed flight, I was 10 min late to my connection (United's fault!!) and forced to sleep in the airport over night. This is unacceptable behavior from any airline and only reminds me yet again why I do not fly with United. Worst experience."
Pros: "The loading and no hassle boarding"
Cons: "Nothing everything was smooth"
Pros: "Flight delayed, missed connection in Chicago. United automatically confirmed me on next flight."
Cons: "United sent timely notification that flight would be delayed. Sent no notice regarding missing connection in Chicago or rebooking the connection. The only notice that United automatically rebooked me was on the United app on my phone."
Pros: "The credit was polite, hat was about it"
Cons: "We were delayed coming out bc the plane needed de-icing... IN JACKSONVILLE, but they were unable to get manager approval for de-icing and then the truck was out of fuel. Finally, the pilot moved the plane into the sun (which should have happened much sooner). During the flight, the cabin temperature dropped to low 60s and everyone was freezing."
Cons: "The crew was haughty and rude, my purse was taken and stowed in overhead storage, the person sitting next to me wouldn't stow the carry on luggage. I needed to take my daily medication during the flight and was not able to. I have chronic health issues and needed to take it on schedule, I was delayed in getting home because I had to stop and eat in the airport and take my medication"
Cons: "my son was connecting in Newark, and they said they were holding the plane for him and 20 other passengers. when they shuttled them from one plane to the next, they got to the gate on the tarmac and the plane had already left. we had to drive 2 1/2 hours to newark at midnight to get our 18 year old son. when i called united about it, they said to write in on their website and i'd be compensated etc... 5 days later, haven't heard a peep. never flying united again...ever"
Pros: "Mobile entertainment"
Cons: "I paid for Economy Plus. Once the doors closed a bunch of passengers decided to move up to the Economy Plus section without paying. The lead flight attendant made a tongue in cheek remark about it as the plane was pulling away but did nothing to enforce it. Not cool at all."
Pros: "On time, free checked bag, speedy service and a friendly crew."
Cons: "Food could be better, does not compare with previous level of service."
Pros: "Staff was nice and accommodating. Plane ride was smooth."
Cons: "DELAYS. I had 4 flights within a weekend all with United and EVERY flight was delayed. The plane also heading to Newark ahead of us was overbooked and some people were pushed onto our plane, not a big deal if all can fit on the plane...but we wouldn't have if it wasn't for the delay causing those flying to Boston to miss their flights. Frustrating and adds an element of concern when faced with delays when the weather is fine. The internet on the plane is also confusing to use...should be clearer. Mistakenly booked my flight before realizing the new carry on policy, so trying to pack everything into a tiny bag to meet requirements was frustrating... definitely don't think I will be booking United again."
Pros: "The crew was awesome!"
Cons: "Delayed flight coming and going!!"
Pros: "Nothing. They booked me on another flight with no need supposedly plane has delate but I maked on time for my connection Now I am missing my paid luggage . Poor customer service at South Carolina"

Pros: "The boarding agents were great"
Cons: "The ticket counter was very unfriendly"

Cons: "Took a long time to get luggage. Also I asked a United person working in baggage claim that if and when my luggage arrived she would help me get my bag off. I had a low back problem. She said yes. Then when my bag came I asked her to help. She didn't hear me. She was busy talking to a coworker. So I had to do it, which made my back worse."
Cons: "Touched down 45 min later than scheduled arrival"
Pros: "Got me to the Newark ahead of schedule"
Cons: "The in flight magazine was in pieces and trash was in the pocket holdings the flight information."
Cons: "Had to sit on the tarmac for awhile. Overall though not too bad."
Pros: "I like nothing! From the beginning It was a nightmare. Begin with changing airlines because theirs have mechanical difficulties. We have to sleep in the floor at miami. Never again!"
Cons: "Everything! From the beginning change airlines ,sleep on a nasty carpet,rude attitude! Never again!"
Pros: "I liked that they gave us blankets. It was cold when we boarded."
Cons: "I was put into a very uncomfortable situation when we finally got boarded and situated in our seats. I was in the window seat of a three seat row. The two men in the center and aisle seats knew each other and struck up a little conversation during boarding but it was a late flight and I was gearing up for some sleep in my seat. I fell asleep after take off and when I woke up the guy in the center seat had taken his shirt off and nearly had his pants down to his knees. Him and his buddy were both asleep, but half-naked-man was a much more mobile sleeper and was constantly rolling his head onto my shoulder to sleep on which I pushed him off many times. Now, someone accidentally falling asleep on you on a plane is one thing; a half-naked-man rolling his body onto yours is a complete other thing. I couldn't really get him to wake when I was pushing him off me so I was kind of hoping someone was gonna come by and tell him to get his clothes back on and pull it together; that never happened. On top of not being able to keep his own body in his own seat he must have been having a very interesting dream because he was having a hard time keeping his hands off of his private parts. Being a man, I was not incredibly grossed out by this (although not what I want to be seeing when I'm on a flight), but it doesn't make it any less sexually offensive. I don't fly that often but I find it hard to be believe that this could be considered acceptable behavior to be tolerated when paying for a plane ticket. To cap it all off, when we were landing and the flight attendants were roaming the aisles to check seat belts and stuff, no one seemed to care that this guy was topless and touching himself. One Flight Attendant asked his friend (the guy in the aisle) to tell him to "prepare to land" which he didn't do. It wasn't till we landed and the seat belt sign went off that his friend woke him up and he put his clothes back on. They had a good chuckle about it as if nothing happened. Kind of put me out. I took a picture of them in full slumber with his clothes off if you guys want evidence."

Cons: "Plane was 90 minutes late"
Pros: "I had a fall over Thanksgiving weekend and needed extra help. The staff and crew were super helpful."

Pros: "The crew was nice to our one year old. And because it wasn't a full flight we were able to give him a seat which saved us!"

Cons: "I had to cancel my flight. Even though I payed the insurance I still have not received my airfare back."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "2nd leg of flight was delayed by 40 min, so I didn't arrive in Detroit until 12:30 am. Not convenient for the person picking me up at airport! :-("
Pros: "I scanned my boarding pass with my cellphone."
Cons: "The flight attendants weren't friendly. They were rude. They NEVER shared their expectations for good passengers. Instead they just wasted a lot of time correcting passengers' bad behaviors. Got half a cup of juice with lots of ice. Thirsty all the time. I never could go and use the restroom."
Cons: "First and last time to fly United. Flight from Washington DC to Seattle was delayed 6.5 hours. Every hour they announced it was delayed another hour. Also, no free entertainment during our 6 hour flight. We were given a $10 food voucher."
Pros: "On time and people nice"
Cons: "Everything. Very good"
Pros: "It flew."
Pros: "I liked the smaller aircraft and the friendly staff."
Cons: "I didn't like how the gate was changed at the last minute."
Cons: "Service is horrible and all personnel had a do not care attitude. I had 2 flights canceled due to maintenence and then when we finally were rebooked the third plane it was delayed 2 hours and I missed all my connecting flights. Once I arrived at next airport was rebooked again and that plane was delayed for 3 hours."
Pros: "Relatively quick boarding."
