Pros: "Delayed"
Read more about Delta
Pros: "Delayed"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and took good care of the passengers"
Cons: "Terrible delays"
Cons: "We weren't alerted there was a chance of delays. Over two hours late."
Cons: "Better food offerings"
Pros: "Excellent crew and clean aircraft"
Cons: "Sat on tarmac for 20 mins because we were early..."
Pros: "The crew was communicative and courteous."
Cons: "There was a flight delay in LAX due to a maintenance issue. The captain and crew informed us before we boarded the plane which was excellent. However, they could not figure out what was wrong with the planed and delayed the boarding for another 3 hours, putting our 1900 departure time to 2100."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I came from a long trip from France, the seat I was assigned was not reclinable, close to the restroom. I was totally exhausted from the previous flight, not able to sleep at all and when I tried to stretch my legs by sitting sidewards on the aisle a crew member keep bothering me to keep my legs out"
Pros: "Very comfortable, no complaints."
Pros: "Nice new seats"
Cons: "Was too warm inside the plane. Boarding address was mobbed and not very well managed"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Took off late. Other than that very comfortable and great experience"
Cons: "THE FLIGHT WAS 5 HOURS LATE"
Pros: "It is a busy travel day and this flight was unbelievably smooth. The entire crew was competent and friendly."
Pros: "Overall service was great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours."
Pros: "Having three seats."
Cons: "I had three seats to myself! After getting elbowed all the way from Amsterdam to Minneapolis, I was tired and I slept three good hours."
Pros: "Better than average entertainment system for domestic flights."
Cons: "Boarding done against logic: my seat was in the last 5 rows of the cabin and I was scheduled to board in the final group. When I got to my seat the first 30 rows were nearly fully, but the back of the plane was half empty. The whole time the gate agent was urging passengers to move faster through the aisle, but Delta should really rethink its boarding strategy. It shouldn't take 40 minutes to board a 757."
Pros: "Transfer f from first flight leg"
Cons: "Food and the 757 lay out"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Look, if your kid is so young that he can’t get in a plane without screaming for four hours, you shouldn’t bring him on a plane and subject 200 people to that. It’s rude and selfish."
Cons: "Sat on the runway for over an hour to get the gate. Unacceptable."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Napkins stuffed in the overhead to fix presumably the rattles."
Pros: "The flight was very good, no complaints, good service and we flew on schedule"
Cons: "We were split into two boarding groups, one for priority and one for everyone else. This was good but the priority line was just a bit too far away for the announcements to be heard. This added a little bit of confusion. This was at gate B36 at JFK Airport's Terminal 4."
Pros: "Didnt expect dinner but was served"
Cons: "Delayed flight, offset entertainment, touch screen un responsive"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly - very happy"
Pros: "crew kept a great attitude throughout"
Cons: "Having to find my boarding pass to deplane"
Pros: "Crew were very friendly specially with my 6yrs old daughter"
Cons: "late leaving, arriving and taxing."
Pros: "They were comprehensive and tried to move fast"
Cons: "Delayed flight because they didn’t had the crew ready"
Pros: "Boarding was fine. And service was good."
Cons: "TV controls didn’t work. So I couldn’t watch anything for the 4+ hour flight."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The movie selection is very good"
Cons: "Both boarding the flight and getting off the flight were severely delayed. The flight attendants also seemed to ignore half the plane when handing out drinks and when picking up trash. I had to flag someone down after they had simply walked past my row both times."
Cons: "Got in early"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hrs. Annoying!"
Pros: "What an easy flight. Run very well!"
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit tired, but it’s the season"
Pros: "Being on time."
Pros: "We were not happy with our flight my flight got cancelled 3 times I miss work they need to reimburse us and also reimburses the hotel cuz we had to stay at a hotel because they cancelled our flight three times and then our flight that we went out on Monday was late because of a flight attendant arriving late to the hotel to the airport"
Pros: "The temp"
Cons: "It was too hot."
Pros: "It got me to SFO earlyish"
Cons: "Was told to go away and wait for name to appear on screen for seat assignment. Was seated apart from travel companion. Got to sit next to folks with questionable hygiene, seat broken. Seatbelt broken. Stuck in back of plane window seat and was supposed to be “happy”. I was brilliantly ignored by crew. Seat back entertainment broken snd flight crew never answered the call button. Got to watch bag handlers throw and drop luggage like true gorillas. Delta, this time you truely are the worst. Wont book you again."
Cons: "Delayed for an hour and fifteen minutes"
Pros: "The crew on Delta create a welcome atmosphere every time I have flown with them."
Pros: "The entertainment options and noticing the little touches that Delta is making to improve the brand and experience."
Cons: "Seems like there are legacy "attitude" issues with the crew. I sat on the aisle yesterday, and SEVERAL times I was bumped, quite rudely, by passing crew. In one instance, as they passed to pick up trash, they took two of my three items. They started walking on, and I tapped them as they passed to pick up the third. She brusquely turned and said: don't touch me to get my attention. No please; quite rude, and unnecessary."
Cons: "Horrible wait if nearly 30 minutes after landing"
Pros: "The boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Three hour departure delay. No explanation given. No apology."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for very 4 hrs sat in plane for 2.5 of those. Flight was delayed dye to strike in Barcelona. But replacement plane had fueling problems delaying the flight another 2 hours"
Cons: "Zero communication to the passengers as to why we were delayed for almost an hour sitting on the plane"
Pros: "Crew was polite"
Cons: "Rocky takeoff"
Pros: "I didn't like anything about this flight. Only benefit of the doubt is the 2 hour delay as a runway in SF had shut down."
Cons: "We had seats at first where there was what looked like bubble gum bits stuck on one of the food trays. The flight was clearly not cleaned although it landed 2+ hours before the departure. We had to ask for a wet tissue and clean it up. That was of no use too as it wouldn't scrub off. My wife was feeling under the weather and so we asked for a blanket. The blanket was hardly a blanket and more like a towel. We then luckily could switch seats as there were 2 vacant. But, the air conditioner was leaking water in the seat to our left. The crew was callous and just stuck the passenger with some napkins saying it does that. I don't fly Delta a lot and my experience in this trip isn't inspiring much confidence."
Pros: "Both flights were on-time, no gate changes. Staff was friendly enough, and seat back entertainment was appreciated. Everything went as you always hope it does for flights!"
Pros: "Decent food and drink. Flight attendants were very nice, although not quite as excellent as on the other Air France flights which I had on this trip"
Cons: "The seat is angled when fully reclined so there's a feeling that you'll slide off the seat, making it difficult to find a good position to sleep. Video screen seemed quite large. Headphones were noise canceling and worked well"
Pros: "Delta treats diamond medallion members better than any other airlines treats their elite members"
Cons: "No in seat entertainment"
Pros: "Crew were polite"
Pros: "The time and the route and seat pitch."
Cons: "Food and crew."
Pros: "Efficient well groomed staff, thoughtful amenities such as baby seat belts & toiletry kit containing toothbrushes. Palatable tasty cuisine."
Pros: "The best airline in the world!"
Pros: "Wonderful crew and flight. A380 smooth and quiet"
Pros: "The service and the entire crew were outstanding"
Cons: "BA cited computer glitch in London. Flights were severely delayed. Fortunately my connection was rebooked. Just minus 6 hours of my time."
Pros: "Breakfast was tasty"
Cons: "Food choices not good for lunch/ dinner"
Pros: "Great!!!"
Cons: "I did not fly this leg because Iberia somehow deleted my return flight home. This resulted in me flying home a different way that led to me landing the two hours later than I was originally going to."
Pros: "The flight attendant did bother me when I finally did fall asleep."
Cons: "My seat did not recline."
Cons: "Vacation was cancelled due to illness."
Cons: "Delay and rerouted"
Pros: "Quiet and smooth flight Dinner"
Cons: "BA seat configuration in business class"
Pros: "Six years ago, after a very bad experience with this airline, I swore never to use BA again. However, this year, because of my children, I found myself on this airline again and had a very positive experience. The flight was on time, luggage was transferred without a hitch, the food was excellent and in-flight entertainment had a great variety to choose from. The 747 provided a very steady flight experience. Personnel were reasonably helpful. Continue this kind of service - it will help you remain successful."
Pros: "The drinks were great, however the food specifically the salmon meal (Great Britain breakfast) seemed to be missing something. The stewardess mentioned my partner to have the chicken as there was only a portion of the meal. But, I paid £24 for the meal. Although, the vegan and veggie meals were great!"
Cons: "Next time I will pay more attention to the two row seating and pay for seats in that area of the plane. Other than that, good service."
Pros: "Lie flat bed"
Cons: "Non-A380 plane feels very old now and in need of an overhaul. My biggest complaint was the food. On the outbound leg (SFO-LHR) I had the pasta dish which was dry and poorly cooked so on the return flight I opted for the beef dish which was ok. I thought that the pasta was just a one-off issue. When the pre-landing meal arrived, it was so bad I had to look at the menu to see what it was (pea mousse with artichoke and almonds). It was completely inedible. Finally the amenities bag consisted of hand cream, face lotion and lip balm as well as the std toothpaste, socks, eyeshades etc. in the past there were far more items in the bag. Overall it feels like BA has cut costs and I had a reasonable deal on my flight price which I was willing to pay just to have a lie flat bed. I can't imagine if I paid $5K for this flight and had the same experience. I recently flew Emirates from SFO to Dubai in business class and it was comparable to first class in BA."
Cons: "seats are too small - but y'all know that!"
Pros: "Great, very comfortable, easy transatlantic flight"
Pros: "overall the flight was smooth. they had a video about collecting leftover coins, but but no one came by to collect, and no information as to where to leave your donation, so i just took my envelope and euros with me. price is the only reason I flew British airways again. If I could afford a better ticket I would fly a better airline."
Cons: "the armrest between the seats did not go up all the way. the storage area next to the window seat was dirty on the inside with food crumbs. after the recent news about bed bugs, i was uneasy on the flight. the actual flight was smooth, some turbulence but not the worst. they have absolutely the worst food ever. i have no idea what the awful purple stuff is, but they really should get rid of it. it is really unappetizing by the look of it. the carpet was coming loose in a number of places, just in our seat area. how long would it take to put some tacks in, or even some tape? bathroom was nasty and the sink was clogged.and full of water"
Pros: "We could tell upon boarding that the crew was focused on making our fight of 10 hours as pleasant as they could. They got along well together, which aided in providing excellent coordinated care to the passengers. Not an hour passed without being offered food, drinks, snacks, drinks, and more food. Even a time delay at take off due of a passenger leaving passport in the terminal was made up mid flight, for an ontime arrival in SFO. Would definitely look to British Airways for my next European trip."
Pros: "Quickly loaded full, huge plane. Excellent demeanor from stewards. Seats very comfortable in econ class. Were as on time as they could be. Superfast deplaning. Couldn't be happier."
Cons: "Not a thing"
Pros: "Excellent staff Clean bathrooms"
Cons: "the only hard part was the boarding in London, very hard to hear the boarding directions. Kind of chaotic. BUT it all worked out"
Pros: "very friendly and efficient crew"
Cons: "mediocre food, chaotic boarding area"
Cons: "For the 2nd time, neither me or my husband got our food choice...it has happened everytime we have flown. And we purchased full fare business class seats! I can understand once and maybe for one of us but it has happened EVERY time. MOST IMPORTANTLY, I sadly left my laptop onboard and I called the number for SFO BA Lost and Found for 48 hours....every 20 minutes. NO ONE answered and no one returned my messages. I finally had to drive back to the airport to talk to a human....a 5 hr round trip. No laptop turned in and it didn't turn back up in London. So clearly, cleaning crew stole it. That in its own right is a problem but NO ONE returning my calls. Completely unacceptable. I got the duty manager's email and emailed him TWICE over TWO days before he returned my email. I highly doubt I will fly BA again, I'm afraid."
Cons: "Legroom is extremely tight."
Pros: "aer lingus was good"
Pros: "The air plane ran out of fuel we had to divert to San Jose we waited two hours because of weather and because the paperwork had the wrong pilots name so they wouldn't let the plane fly. Therefore we waited in the airport all night because neither British airways or American Airlines would help us We waited here all night with no sleep no one would give us a hotel or a meal we have now will be getting into London 24 hours later than planned and we will be out about $1000 in hotels in two hours we had booked that were non-cancelable . Multiple phone calls to British airline Waze and to American Airlines for all of the helpful"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Flight crew was incredibly nice and professional. They were particularly attentive to another passenger that had food allergies. The seats were comfortable, with neck support and low back pillows. The over-intercom announcements were just enough to keep passengers aware of relevant info. There were lots of entertainment choices on the tv in the back of the seat. The first meal was really good (pasta). Thank you for a great flight."
Cons: "The boarding gate was not announced until very close to boarding time and boarding seemed a bit of a free-for-all. The second meal/ 'hot snack' of a pizza pocket was gross."
Pros: "Lots of movies, excellent quality."
Cons: "Very crowded, otherwise okay."
Cons: "The lady at the check in counter changed the seat I paid to reserve from the front to the back of the plane without informing me"
Pros: "Amazing flight - Crew was attentive and helpful"
Pros: "n/a"
Cons: "Did not make it. We are still stuck."
Pros: "I like the service and the food it was served."
Pros: "Entertainment selection"
Cons: "Snacks were carb heavy and protein low"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The BA ticket counter did not open early enough with enough staff to get all passengers checked in time. As such, the plane was delayed and we missed this connecting flight. Other people were in the same boat. We had no chance to make our connection but others did. While the flight crew offered weak apologies advising they had no control, they made no effort to help connecting passengers in ways the could control. Such as asking all passengers to remain seated allowing connecting passengers off the plane first. Something I've seen done on many other airlines numerous times."
Pros: "This was my first time on an Airbus A380 and I must say that I'm still in awe of how an aircraft this large can be so quiet and smooth, let alone get in the air. Boarding was smooth. Entertainment was great and the food (depending on what you got) was okay. The inflight crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "Economy seats are very uncomfortable. I am 6'4 and there isn't that much space. It's even worse when you have a kid sitting in front with his seat reclined all the way back - so the little room I had to start with became even worse. Not to mention he kept rocking his chair back in forth, passed gas about 5 times, felt the need to stretch his arm behind him 3 times so his hand was blocking my screen. I really never got comfortable in my seat during the 11 hour flight. For a plane this large, i would of expected a little bit more comfort, especially when I felt it on AA 777"
Pros: "Crew was so professional and friendly Plane up to date and comfortable Food was good"
Pros: "Fantastic service and entertainment. One of my best flights in years."
Cons: "1st service was good. Second just ok."
Pros: "The crew above all were cordial, warm and approachable. Not only to the passengers, but to one another. They all seemed to get along really well with one another and that set the tone for a long but comfortable flight. It's probably one of the most memorable of all my flights b/c the experiences."
Cons: "Better in flight food choices. Maybe I should've purchased a meal. Will definitely order a meal the next time I fly on BA. And maybe a different seat type so that it's more comfortable."
Pros: "Great service from the whole crew"
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Pros: "Travelled in business class so priority boarding was good Well planned boarding by different seat sections Crew attentive when needed but not intrusive"
Cons: "Food selection not great Video screen brightness not working on my screen and so very difficult to watch movies"
Pros: "Seats were cushioned and comfortable, entertainment screens were crisp and colorful, restrooms stayed clean and maintained throughout flight."
Pros: "Food Movie selection Flight attendants"
Cons: "Nothing: everything was beyond expectations"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "The food was good plus drinks"
Cons: "There was no wifi in an 11h flight"
Cons: "Terrible food, no option available online to order special meals, the restrooms were filthy and not looked after. We are never flying either British Airways or Aer Lingus in future. It was a big mistake !"
