Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Water station!"
Pros: "The seating in upper class is unconventional and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Reconfigure seating in upper class. We will no longer be customers for that reason alone.."
Pros: "Virgin Atlantic is the best airline I’ve ever flown on internationally. The service is wonderful, from check in to inflight service. Everything went as planned. The food and drinks on board are free and they are an abundance of snacks, much more than we dreamed. The flight attendants are excellent"
Cons: "No. Keep up the good work!"
Cons: "There was a medical issue and Virgin Atlantic refused to accept the ticket code - for any price - toward a new ticket. I paid for a new ticket and took another airline."
Pros: "The crew was very good and there was enough leg room."
Cons: "The dinner option was underwhelming."
Cons: "My bag was damaged in transit"
Pros: "My flight was canceled and Virgin Atlantic gave us a free room in the hotel Ramada. My next flight was at 18:55 and I asked Virgin Atlantic agent am I allowed to stay in the room until time for my flight comes, he confirmed yes and gave me breakfast, lunch, and dinner voucher. However, next day around 12 I got call from Front Desk that I have to leave my room right away because it's time to chack out and If I want to stay longer I have to pay. I called Virgin Atlantic agancy again and the agent run my information and said to me I can stayin the room longer. After that I called front desk to confirm that but they said they didn't hear anything from Virgin Atlantic and I have to leave the room by 1pm. All of this was really unpleasant!"
Cons: "I didn't like anything. I didn't like the communication between Virgin Atlantic with travelers, communication between Virgin Atlantic and hotel Ramada. Everything was really poorly."
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 ground staff was on top of it and the boarding process was smooth, but the cabin crew was brilliant. I’ve never had such pleasant service on a western airline. Well done. Entertainment system is top-notch, and the food was acceptable."
Cons: "The booking process and paying for luggage is disappointing. Plus, I paid a $90 upgrade and just moved up two rows in the same section. Sneaky."
Pros: "The rear section of the plane had lots of room (empty seats), enough to lay down across three seats. Pleasant and helpful crew."
Cons: "Minimal food available between departure and arrival meals; 10 hrs or so is a long time to get by on potato chips."
Pros: "Loved the food and ambiance"
Cons: "The on air entertainment was surprisingly low quality"
Cons: "Queue at boarding gate for upper class ticket holders Bus transfer to plane - Virgin is not a LoCo airline! Upper Class Service was slow - understaffed?"
Pros: "Service, meals, friendly and attentive FAs"
Cons: "Everything incl customer service at the airport"
Pros: "The boarding, the seats."
Cons: "The food was so-so, and I did not get my choices, perhaps because I was at the back."
Pros: "Cabin crew were accommodating and nice throughout the flight. Meals were good and the service was quick. Large range of entertainment selection for the trip helped pass the time."
Cons: "The check in process and boarding process were very slow. It made going through security a bit stressful and I didn't have much time after going through the security to use the bathrooms or get a quick bite to eat before the plane boarded."
Pros: "Service and food are good. Crew very friendly and tries to please everyone."
Cons: "Chair could be more comfortable compared to other seats who transform without turning over. Still - much much better than BA."
Pros: "Everything was as or better than expected. Did not have high expectations, because price was so much less than other airlines. Crew was friendly. Was pleasantly surprised all was good. Was expecting extra fees, (from reading reviews) but had none. Virgin checked bags all the way through, even though tickets were unrelated (and my online checkin said I would have to recheck baggage for second flight)."
Cons: "Seats are small in economy. I was lucky it was not a full flight, so I had two seats. The entertainment system was a. It confusing to manage, but the choices were good. Food was ok; but not worse than would expect."
Pros: "Our ticket was canceled apparently due to an error by the airline. Very unhappy about that. The airline couldn't care less."
Pros: "love the lounge and easy check in and boarding, great attendants and smooth trip"
Cons: "would be nice if lounge was open earlier - arrived for 8:30am flight and had to wait around in freezing cold terminal with no coffee for an hour"
Cons: "Seats in economy are way to small and very uncomfortable if tall. Too close to the seats in front of you. I was miserable all the way to London."
Pros: "in flight experience is above average"
Cons: "The computer system really needs a lot of improvement. We were checking in with our infant daughter and it took 50 minutes to check in with a senior person helping the check in person and phone calls to their technical assistance. We were told an infant is difficult in their system, and our dual national daughter was another layer of complication."
Pros: "Excellent entertainment options, out stewardess was fantastic."
Cons: "Cramped seats."
Pros: "The crew was the best part of my experience, super nice and accomodating"
Cons: "the wifi had subpar performance"
Cons: "I always think Virgin's meals are the WORST among those of all the airlines I use. PLEASE LET THE VIRGIN COMPANY KNOW THIS FACT. The touch screen of the DVD player did not work well so it was a frustrating experience."
Cons: "A plane from 1960? No entertainment center!"
Pros: "We paid extra for more legroom and it was totally worth it."
Cons: "The regular seats were so lacking in leg room that I could not cross my legs, reach the floor to get my glasses when I dropped them, or even get my carry-on out. There is no way to get into the "brace for impact position" with arms over your head and head in your lap! This is really unsafe, not to mention really uncomfortable. The flight was long, so comfort would be nice! Our first flight was regular seats and I was pretty miserable and I am a slender woman 5'6". The extra 3" was great, and we had to pay more on the return trip. The FAA should be investigating seat size and safety on planes."
Cons: "Delayed 40mins"
Cons: "Food was awful. Sorry. Breakfast was unrecognizable. Landed hungry."
Pros: "The flight was late but the pilots made up most of the time"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Quantity of food was less for the dinner time..but overall experience was good.."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Leg space was cramped. Parking was very far.food"
Pros: "first time I flew VirginAtlantic. Heard so many good things about it. It fact even our Uber driver was praising the airline on our way to the airport. But once onboard: - poor food (I mean 'survival kit' style) - entertainment station was not working - games feel like 20 years old - design (heavy red) now looks dated and suffocating - hostesses are more focused on their hairstyle than their customers"
Cons: "Back to Air France next time!"
Pros: "Food, crew and overall experience was good"
Cons: "Got assigned seats all the way in the back. They were comfortable but would have preferred better seats."
Pros: "Just the food and boarding was fine."
Cons: "Everything else was bad. I think crew were a little rude!"
Pros: "Purchased an extra 3" of leg room, which helped tremendously being that my husband & I are both tall. Flight attendants were friendly, helpful & attentative. There were plenty of beverages offered. The food service was adequate. So many options on the media screens on the back of the seats. USB ports were provided on the back of every seat as well."
Pros: "Having a not full flight and room to spread out. The Dreamliner is awesome. On time departure."
Cons: "The wifi did not work at all, and I think I was charged 3 times Landed 30 mins early and then waited an hour for the gate, I get that things happen but we have been on the plane for 11.5 hrs. Figure it out!"
Pros: "From check in to landing in London, the gracious, helpful crew impressed us with their attitude and service"
Cons: "Sound didn't work on some of the entertainment choices"
Pros: "There are lots of relatively new movies to choose from."
Cons: "The complimentary headset breaks easily. Tray table was broken and they can't fix it. Very small bathrooms, knees almost touch the door when sitting down. Food selection for dinner ran out quickly, resulting in only 2 choices and one is hot spicy, so basically only one choice. All beverages are given out in small cups, even water is given out in small cups increments (finish in one gulp), they don't even give out small bottles of water. No complimentary packet (eye shades, socks etc.) , not even a barf bag for collecting trash."
Cons: "More than one hour delated"
Pros: "Genuinely pleasant cabin crew, good service, good food."
Cons: "Virgin Upper Class seats are cramped, with very limited stowage space. Turning the seat into a lay flat bed (and returning it seat at the end of the flight) takes some effort--not the simplest of processes. I'm not tall, but my feet protruded into the aisle so I was being disturbed whilst sleeping. Seat is also quite narrow--feels quite claustrophobic when sleeping."
Pros: "The service went a mile farther. It is my favourite airlines!"
Pros: "The staff, the food , everything was good. We were in premium economy and were impressed ."
Cons: "I have trouble walking and the golf buggy never arrived to take me and another lady to the airoplane so we had to walk."
Pros: "Smiling and helpful staff Great FREE food and drinks good movies Free goodie bag of travel goods, blanket, pillow etc Free candy for landing descent"
Cons: "Leg room is a little tight"
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."
Cons: "Watch out for checked baggage fees on short haul international flights. If you buy their saver fare, VA charges you $130 to check a bag at the check-in counter. Highway robbery in my opinion! Make sure you add a bag beforehand. Corporate greed at its worst."
Pros: "The whole flight was great quick boarding, lots of leg room, good entertainment, a USB charge port, good lighting, and the crew was very nice and helpful. I enjoyed the flight and would like to fly Virgin Atlantic more. Finally, you are the 3rd best flight, I have ever take, and the 2nd best airline I've been on. Flew Business Class on Swiss Air once to Geneva (#1) and all the flights I have had with Porter Air are comparable to your airline, but the free cookies and beverages at Porter's terminal in Toronto wonderful."
Cons: "A couple things went wrong on this trip, my checked luggage got misplaced for a day, and a nice women in baggage claim told me what was happening and a nice man handled my claim and my bag has now been returned to me. The bigger thing is my flight bas delayed taking off by 3 hours. Let me start that I would rather have a part replaced on the runway then not, safety is paramount. The fact is my flight took off 3 hours late from London (VS11), and got to my destination (BOS) 2.5 hours late. Kudos to the flight crew for getting me to my destination faster by gaining a little time. Plus, since BOSTON was my final destination it was all fine this time. But if I had had to get home to the elder person I take care of or my teenager it would been a problem. Again, I'm annoyed, but I do understand the reasons and they are valid and preferred. I have heard that airlines to keep their flight rating high, wait for planes to leave the gate on time and then do repairs on the tarmac. If this is still a SOP for airlines you should change the way the statistics are collected and figure out a way of not perpetuating this type of disincentive. This is just hypothesis on my part, and my whole trip had little negatives."
Pros: "Friendly crew and good food"
Pros: "Flight crew were awesome! I got super sick with Bali belly and the crew did everything in their ability to comfort me."
Cons: "Sitting in the galley vomiting for 6h. Flight was completely packed since flights the day before had been canceled, but a full flight isn't really something you can complain about."
Pros: "Seat was average"
Cons: "It was fabulous as always! Thank you. I love Delta!"
Pros: "Crew were helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "Flight on time! Missed connections. In hotel overnight. Missed the event I was travelling to attend!"
Pros: "The entire flight was excellent, on time, great friendly crew, edible food, movies and options were great, perfect in every way. It was a little chaotic at flight loading on extra security, but I assume it could have something to do with it being on 9/11 and it was ultimately bound for NYC."
Cons: "I honestly cannot think of anything."
Pros: "Everything was good/adequate, nothing was exceptional."
Cons: "Mechanical difficulty. Late Then missed connecting flight. 4 hours in a hotel. Then back to the airport the next day. Why can’t airline keep planes in good condition?"
Cons: "Bring back the Narita to Minneapolis."
Pros: "The crew was great and also the snacks."
Cons: "Seat assignment with Economy ticket."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, helpful and provided comfort"
Cons: "Aero mexico which is who delta services really messed our tickets up and flying both to Cancun and from Cancun both flights were screwed up and Delta had to bail out aero mexico both times thanks to delta airlines our tripped was salvaged"
Pros: "Crew was courteous."
Pros: "Seats were narrow and we were shoulder to shoulder. Plane was clean and all was on tkmr"
Cons: "Roomier cabin"
Pros: "No carry on fee, comfortable seat and pitch"
Cons: "Displays for zone boarding status would be helpful"
Pros: "Arrive early. On time departure."
Cons: "My row 34 D did not have entertainment - had to move to another seat and row."
Cons: "I was never notified that the flight from Asheville to Atlanta was delayed...probably cancelled...... my connection to Munich would have been missed..... not reliable and not customer friendly to never notify the passenger!"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Baggage was at carousel before we were, a first."
Cons: "Everything was fine."
Pros: "Bulkhead seating is great! Seems like food is improving... Keep up the good work!"
Cons: "Eventhough booked more than 6 mos in advance, could not find a second seat in COMFORT PLUS section! Bathrooms should be attended by flight crews more frequently! Where's the latest movies?"
Pros: "Direct flight from CDG to IND."
Pros: "I was surprised by the amount of snacks and drinks on such a short flight."
Cons: "There really needs to be a way the airlines can better make seating assignments. I was in a window seat and the woman in the middle seat was so large that her arms took all of the arm rest and some of my seat area. Even crossing my arms I was unable to not have her arm up against me."
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating and found me a new seat when I requested one."
Cons: "My assigned seat was next to a morbidly obese man. He overflowed his seat and took up at least five inches of my seat. The seats have become so narrow that even an average weight male has trouble fitting his shoulders into the seats."
Pros: "Good movies and tv selection. Seat next to me was empty, so that was great."
Cons: "Never on time"
Cons: "Left 30 minutes late from SLC."
Pros: "Great service by crew!"
Cons: "Took too long to get on board."
Cons: "The monitors kept on freezing"
Cons: "Customer service was lack luster..."
Pros: "A screen with free movies is nice."
Cons: "Due to the earthquakes, the film festival I was going to was cancelled. Ten days prior to the flight I called AeroMexico to cancel and they said there would be a cancellation penalty, which was fine. When I tried to redeem my credit, they said there was also an additional "No-show fee" even though I called to cancel 10 days prior, which left a total of $70 credit after all their penalties. I called and emailed to complain but they did nothing but pass me to someone else who was equally unhelpful. I will never fly AeroMexico for any reason in the future."
Pros: "Lots of water being offered. Lucky to have extra seat for comfort."
Cons: "It seemed longer than the estimated time. The food was bland. My husband's entertainment system worked, mine didn't. We had hit a lot of rough air during time over Pacific. Would have been nice if the pilot would have given more information."
Pros: "For a short flight, they gave it drinks and snacks."
Pros: "Crew was courtesy"
Cons: "1hour delay from departing LAX runway - not good"
Pros: "Flight was delayed for over 6 hours. Not an ideal way to spend the day."
Cons: "NO ENTERTAINMENT no snacks on the second flight after an hr 24 layover AND 52 minutes delay, seat near the bathroom which smelled horrible"
Pros: "The flight was very comfortable and quick. I like the coffee when I pair it with a biscoff."
Cons: "The boarding process seems a bit chaotic, but it didn't really detract from the overall experience."
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff and movie choices"
Cons: "Seat space"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Going into the security check point (immigration) lost my connection from Atlanta to Richmond Va there was just a few CBP officers working at that time but other than that was great"
Pros: "Everything about the flight was great. We boarded and took off on time. I have no complaints."
Cons: "My seat wouldn't recline at all. I think it was broken. Not the end of the world, but a bit of a bummer as it was an overnight flight."
Pros: "The crew was incredibly helpful assisting my last minute boarding needs. Staff was friendly and polite."
Pros: "We barely got on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding "red shirt" saved us. We are a band on tour and thanks to her we made the gig"
Pros: "The crew & my seat"
Cons: "The movie offerings & the snack offerings."
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: "Excellent trip. Provided ample food snacks and drinks."
Cons: "Was not on it due to cancellation. Was on an Aeromexico flight without Delta emenities. Was very disappointing. Was not offered an upgrade and had a long layover in Mexico City"
Cons: "Need more legroom"
Pros: "Lovely staff"
Cons: "No meal served on a 5 hours flight!"
Pros: "Ease in finding another connecting flight get to Miami when our connection was delayed."

Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the crew were nice."
Cons: "the seating is horrible. it was the tightest seating I've ever experienced."

Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic. The passengers in the first boarding group had to fight through the crowd because there were no boarding lanes."
Pros: "Services is good ."
Cons: "Food can be better"
Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Staff: from check in to landing, they could at least smile. Baggage claim was a nightmare, 6 Schengen flights in the same belt."
Pros: "Professional crew. Good simple check in."
Pros: "Staff were professional and polite."
Cons: "Despite zone boarding, boarding and disembarkation were very slow. Passengers like me with flight connections were very anxious regarding missing these."
Pros: "Reclinable seats."
Cons: "The food!! The lights could be dimmed as it was a night flight."
Pros: "Fantastic gate agents!"
Cons: "The food was terrible."
Pros: "Just as I expected. And I made my last connection easily."
Pros: "Seats super comfy. Ended up with 3 seats to myself that formed a bed for the lap Uk to NZ. Very nice!"
Pros: "the trip was excellent and comfortable. LOved the windows that shaded out rather than the having to pull down the plastic blind. entertainment on board top notch screen huge One hostess , Helen was absolutely fantastic and the best I ve had on my many trips. I will recommend KLM whenever I can"
Cons: "the headrest is hard. Apart from that- all was fine"
Pros: "Checkin 1a at Schiphol had long lines, and no seperate counters for just bag drop. My family and I had to wait for 50 mins, to do a bag drop which in,y lasted 1 min! Flight was delayed, without proper announcements."
Cons: "Seat pitch could've been more. At least let us know via Whatsapp that the plane is delayed, or at which belt the bags would come out. This basic info was lacking."
Cons: "We were allowed to choose our seats from SFO to Amsterdam but not for the return flight. I like to be able to choise my seats when I book the flight. Choosing seats 24 hours before is not convenient when traveling for the return trip."
Cons: "Lost a single baggage item, a car seat. Critical for us to leave the airport, and delayed us for over an hour upon arrival. Gave us a loaner car seat that barely fit our child."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "Airplane so uncomfortable. Food horrible. Not even available for one of us what we ask for on what was offered. Bad taste and not what can be on a that length of time flight."
Pros: "Last year I flew Lufthansa which was my worst experience flying ever. I thought the new standard was so low I would never fly to Europe again. I had heard KLM was good but I felt this was as good as could be expected actually much better. The food was even good."
Cons: "I would have to dream something up."
Pros: "Very pleasant, professional crew"
Cons: "Very slow check in. Mainly because other passengers obviously don't read instructions re: weight/contents of cabin bags etc. Would be helpful if there was additional staff to deal with them away from check in desk. This would mean that others did not have to queue for 25 minutes because the check in girls also had to deal with them"
Pros: "Crew where awesone and the choice of entertainment was fantastic"
Cons: "Seats way to close together"
Pros: "Easy flight; loved the crew and their friendly customer service. Great food, kept everyone hydrated and fed."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and there was enough room for hand baggage. I slept during the flight so do not have opinion on entertainment."
Cons: "Not able to charge my digital devices. When serving beverages and food, the same flight attendant missed me a few times. That was annoying but other attendants were very nice."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."
Pros: "Wifi on Board"
Pros: "Sound was broken on my TV set!"
Cons: "Called stewardess twice to assist. No response!"
Cons: "Our total flight time was about 17 hours - MAD- AMS-LAX. My husband and I both have an internationally approved carry on luggages with us. When we checked in - they asked us to both check in our carry on luggage. The reason why is because they said they don’t think they have enough space for our carry ons. I told the crew member checking us in that other people that was checking in with the same hand carry size luggage with us had no problems taking it with them. For being about to be on a 17 HOUR FLIGHT we should be ALLOWED to have our carry ons with us! We take carry ons for that reason! I had to argue and prove my case to the crew member to atleast keep 1 carry on with us. I thought that was an UNACCEPTABLE reason for us to check in a carry on luggage when we had a 17 hour travel time ahead of us. Not a happy costumer here."
Pros: "Boarding was as expected, crew & food were ok. Nothing else positive to extract out of this flight."
Cons: "Delayed flight, horrible baggae policy when the flight is actually operated by a partner of the company you bought the ticket from and not the actual company. Dirty seats, no in-flight entertainment whatsoever (not even a magazine)."
Pros: "I enjoyed the attention to detail and comfort. Helped to make the flight easier to handle."
Pros: "All cabin crew were courteous. Refreshments were light. Check stuff were helpful, they did devise that the flight was full and due to space hand luggage would prefer to be put in hold free of charge. We did not have any problem with this. Plane was clean."
Cons: "Service was a little slow going through the gate, it seemed to take a while for everyone to get on board."
Cons: "The 767 is configured oddly and th business class seats are so narrow it feel like you are sleeping in a coffin"
Cons: "Bit cramped for space"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Could have gone to Amsterdam and come back in that time"
Cons: "Crowded seating, 20-year old video system, headphones that did not match the two-jack system, lackluster service in flight. Generally my experience with KLM has been good, but this was well below average."
Cons: "Boarding was a free for all. The travelers did not pay attention to the priorities."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Warm plane with happy staff."
Cons: "Maybe a second sandwich option for food, not everyone likes cheese."
Pros: "Helpful and smiling cabin crew."
Pros: "Clean airplane, friendly crew, no rush, nice snacks for a short one hour flight. Just generally a positive experience."
Cons: "Tiny old cramped plane."
Pros: "Flight was on time and quick and comfortable"
Pros: "Cabin Crew was awesome."
Cons: "Entertainment System was not working and no Non-veg food option in flight."
Pros: "From downloading the KLM app to the final touchdown of my final flight, everything was an ease, checking in, the option to change my seat, the service received was great."
Cons: "The ability to state a seat or meal preference within the app would be good but otherwise all was good."
Pros: "Everything - Checkin, crew, food, entertainment"
Pros: "Everytime she passed she was hitting me or I had to hold my drink so that she wouldn't knock it off"
Pros: "quick boarding, responsive Airline stewardess, very polite."
Cons: "temperature control was not good, service was fine, seats were not comfortable. plane need to be cleaner."
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "Atmosphere, crew were very professional and friendly"
Cons: "Seats were a little too narrow, and quite uncomfortable when a broad shouldered person is sitting next to you"
Pros: "Good and plenty of food available."
Cons: "No power to charge phones, laptops, etc and no WiFi available. For such a long trip (10 hours) below industry standard."
Pros: "It's the best flight I could get for such a low price. But don't expect to to get the best and newest planes around but it's still overall a good experience."
Cons: "Quite bummed the plane didn't have wifi / USB"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and hassle free, crew were friendly and helpful, food and drinks were very good, entertainment system is awesome and up to date with latest contents, good flight overall"
Cons: "Cabin noise and air conditioning too cold, didn't sleep well"
Pros: "There is a nothing to mention that was memorable or comfortable."
Cons: "I asked for an upgrade as we are on our honeymoon. The ground staff only wanted to get us on the plane and not try in anyway to recognize us. Our seats were very poor quality, you should immediately replace them! I would have rather stood than sit on the flight. The in flight entertainment is so poor. Absolutely disappointing especially with the head sets not working because of poor ports of connection. The food was absolutely tragic. You should fire your catering company. I expect more from your airline and I was disappointed all the way through. I hope you can provide my wife and I better service and an upgrade when we fly back to Washington DC on Flight AF 0054 from CDG to IAD. I work in the luxury hotel sector, and even the door men and room attendants have more autonomy to wow our guests. Flying AF does not want me to spend any more money with your airline in the future."
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "In-flight system had some errors"
Pros: "The sear was messy they didn't clean it it was full of pieces of bread."
Cons: "boarding the flight on time instead of delaying it two times... and also putting the information at the flight information screen if I haven't gone to ask to the airport information stand I would never know the flight departure gate that was at the complete opposite side of the airport of were the initial flight was going to depart."
Pros: "The crew was OK, but nothing special."
Cons: "Air France should not sell tickets for which the connection flights are almost impossible to catch. My luggage was not transferred to my connecting flight. I had to run to catch the flight to Bucharest. At CDC there were only two custom officers for checking passport of EU citizens, on a Saturday morning with hundreds and hundreds incoming travelers. On top of it, one female officer was rude. Typical french :("
Pros: "Crew attentive. The delay was due to airport conditions in FCO, cannot be blamed on Air France."
Cons: "Food. For a 2-hour plus flight, from 11am to 1:30pm, we got 20gr pretzel sticks. This is ridiculous. Don't pretend you are not low-cost! Formerly, before the Joon failed (thank God) venture, Air France had real sandwiches around that time of the day on that line."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "The entire experience was amazing that gives me a broader scope to choose from when selecting flights to Europe. The most amazing part was the attentiveness of the staff. Exemplary!!!!!"

Cons: "Airplane really old. Cabin configuration economy was in front of economy plus. Just 1 bathroom for economy and economy plus. Economy plus seats old and uncunfuttable ( more than it should be )"
Pros: "We got to the desk to check in and there was one person being served in front of us. He finished with him, turned and left the area through the dooor. No one came to help us for 15 minutes. Then they came out to answer the phone and said we were 10 minutes past the cut off and we could not fly."
Cons: "Staff just walked away while we were in line, the rudeness and mean attitude, they blamed us for being too late after ignoring us and made us late, they didn't offer an alternative flight until we asked. Overall, horrible customer service. Never been treated so rudely by people in the airlines industry in my entire 42 years of flying!"
Cons: "I leave my jacket in the hanger when I get off the airplane I realized that they didn’t gave it to me. I inmeadiatly tey to go back but I couldn’t I went to the counter and they said that there was noting on the plane !"
Pros: "I liked the crew, they were professional and tried their best"
Cons: "The flight was a chartered flight . Air France informed us that due to cabin crew shortage they couldn't operate an air france flight and hence they hired Air Belgium. Whilst the crew were nice , the actual plane was old and creaky. It wasn't up to the standards expected of Air France. They could have done better in getting a plane up to standard. A lot of the passengers were disappointed ."
Pros: "Boarding for BUsiness class was fine. Seating was cramped."
Cons: "As I said in my rating, seating was cramped. Food was mediocre. Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Waited a while before take off."
Pros: "Flight attendant was very nice."
Cons: "We got socked with 40 Euro fees for our carry on plus personal item being 2 lbs over.

Plane wasn’t even half full so they were deliberately trying to make more $."
Pros: "Easy, fast, comfortable, no hassles"
Pros: "The fresh bread and cheese."
Cons: "The staff is very unprofessional in receiving the passengers and serving the drinks mainly. The luggage wasn’t received and after 24 hrs no news about it! It’s a shame"
Pros: "Charmingly nice crew and involving captain"

Pros: "Nothing particular"
Cons: "Nothing particular"

Cons: "very old planes we waited 1 hour to drop our bags as their belt had an issue we had to pay extra 70 pounds to reserve a baby cot on the plane"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Window pane was broken on my side and I couldn't shut it down. As it was a day flight the sun heated my skin badly"
Pros: "The check in process was much better in the CFG airport than SFO. Very organized."
Cons: "The food was mediocre on this flight. The seats also are surprisingly uncomfortable."
Pros: "The seats are spacious. They give you great amenities such as a toothbrush, etc. The crew was very nice. The food was also superb for airplane food."

Cons: "We Flew business class. Very ordinary."
Pros: "It left when I needed it to"
Cons: "Price. Crazy business fare for a very tight uncomfortable coach seat. No entertainment. Food was pretty awful."
Pros: "Usual BA welcome"
Cons: "Luckily the plane was delayed as my incoming flight was slightly delayed and BA had booked me on flights that take 40 minutes to get between gates I had to run. From there the delay grew as seems to be typical of BA at the moment. Also by the time the trolley made it to me there was only one sandwich choice left."
Pros: "Food servir das ver good. Flights attendants work ver card and seré ver attentive"
Cons: "Some bathrooms found have bien a Little3 cleaner"
Pros: "Great seats, lots of room. The ground crew were great and helped with our baggage and the cabin crew was as good as they could be given the restrictions on their jobs."
Cons: "Had to pay for water or drink tepid tap water, we were not even given water or a cheap bag of pretzels, also the plane had not been cleaned forever, there was crusty food on the floor and trash. It was very strange for an international flight."
Cons: "I did not fly to London 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: "A nice flight, nice attendants also."
Cons: "The tray at my seat was broken. The flight attendants were nice and offered to change my seat if I wanted, but mu original seat had extra leg room and didn’t want to miss out on that. So I chose to stay where I was sitting."
Pros: "I liked the ability to check in online. Check in staff could be a little bit friendlier. Flight crew were fairly pleasant. Entertainment on board was excellent."
Cons: "I disliked the fact that when I tried to download my boarding pass on to my BA app, it told me there appeared to be an issue with at least one of my travelling documents when this was absolutely incorrect (was travelling with a valid British passport). I had no problems whatsoever at the airport at the check in counter. Also, the boarding gate was slightly chaotic. Most people didn't know which queue to join at the boarding gate. Some form of clear explanation when you arrive at the boarding gate would be helpful."
Pros: "Cabin crew was nice and accommodating for passengers"
Cons: "Lack of leg room"
Cons: "In flight entertainment system was never turned on and had to pay for any food or drinks, even water."
Pros: "I have to rate British Airways as a 10 out of 10 in almost all categories...comfort of the plane, food and service, boarding, notifications, crew, etc. In particular, the long haul flight from London to Seattle everything was truly top notch!"
Cons: "Their baggage handlers damaged several parts on my checked-in luggage...three zipper pulls and one clasp. What are they doing with the bags? How can they damage so many things in one fell swoop? This is a good quality Atlantic suitcase. Also, on the short flights, in this case Madrid to London, they are now charging for EVERYTHING...even water and coffee. They said it was a new policy as of 1/1/2018."
Cons: "my trip to England was a nightmare starting with American Airlines not being able to find my flight or my name in the system. It was worse on the return from Gatwick. They also couldnt find me in the system and i blame it all on this Kayak travel site. I will never again use Kayak !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! my trip was a nightmare."
Pros: "Flight staff was very nice"
Pros: "British Airways rescheduled our flights. The BA website was easy to find out how to claim additional costs incurred from the rescheduled flight."
Cons: "The flight was rescheduled within 18 hours of departure. We were in Spain on vacation which meant attempting to figure out how to get home with Iberia at the Madrid airport, who helped but was super agitated with us the entire time. When we asked for advice on how to proceed, as this has never happened to us before, they just kept telling us it was British Airways fault and that they had no answers for us. This took about two hours plus an additional hour back at the hotel to cancel our reservations in London and figure out how we were going to get reimbursed for the extra night at the hotel and additional costs. It would've been nice to get all of this information in an email, with the new ticket and instructions on how to claim the extra costs instead of us running around and taking time out of our vacation."
Pros: "This was the first time I had flown into Oakland instead of SFO. It was faster, easier and close to my destination than San Francisco Airport."
Cons: "The selection of music on BA flights has fallen dramatically in the last year. I prefer to listen to music rather than watch movies and in the past there was a good selection and a broad choice."
Cons: "Flight delayed & on a 2+ hr flight you don’t give anything free to drink. What a sorry airline. Not even human."
Pros: "Leg room, food and entertainment"
Pros: "The plane was comfortable and clean, and there was enough legroom for me even in economy. The flight attendants were friendly and meal services were well timed. For a 10+ hour flight, this was about as comfortable as it could be."
Cons: "Iberia airlines, operating for BA, refused to honor the tickets we had bought via Airfare .com. Would not let me fly!!!!!!! After several hours they found a way to put us on a later flight--got in late, had to stay overnight in Orlando. Don't understand!!!! Wife and I are in 70's--spent 22 hours trying to get home!!!"
Cons: "THE FLIGHT WAS CANCELED. I HAD TO MAKE CHANGES FOR MYSELF AND PARTNER. THE CHANGES REQUIRED ME TO CHANGE TO FROM A BRITISH AIRWAYS FLIGHT TO AN AMERICAN AIRLINES FLIGHT. MY TIME FRAME WAS EXTREMELY TIGHT SO THAT I COULD MAKE THE FLIGHT FROM MADRID TO CHARLOTTE AND ON TO DENVER. FINNAIR REPRESENTATIVES WERE NOT HELPFUL. FINNAIR DIRECTED ME TO GO TO THE IBERIA DESK WHO ASSISTED ME WITH THE PROCESS TO FLY AMERICAN AIRLINES FLIGHT."
Pros: "We did not go to Madrid due to BA's IT problems. Could not find an alternative flight."
Cons: "3 hours standing in British airways and Iberian airways ticket and checking counters to get alternative flights. They could not do the "entire change" and required that we wIt in line after line. Will be a full 24 hours until the entire trip is complete. Would have been nice to at least sit in the empty first class seats on the transatlantic flight with my party as a bit of customer service. Wondering how many hours other had to wait for alternative flights because they did not use the first class seats as an alternative."
Pros: "The very kind staff. The very edible food. The excellent Aircraft. Arrivals on time."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Pros: "Nice crew, comfy plane, quick flight. Allowed us to board past time due to long waits in security."
Cons: "Food/ beverages only offered with a charge, NO entertainment despite having individual screens (couldn't even watch flight path). Crew a but obsessive with seatbelts."
Pros: "The flight was short."
Cons: "The card machine kept declining my cards for a bag of crisps. Seriously! Money was available on all cards. Got to the airport and purchased crisps and tea with no issue. Flight attendants were nice, but aloof."
Pros: "Arrived safely at my destination."
Cons: "I was offered free tap water. No way to treat passengers."
Cons: "They don't offer even water"
Cons: "The old flight attendants, are entitle, rude, racist (from a flight I encountered from China to America, "One claiming Chinese are so annoying to deal with"."
Cons: "Never boarded the plane. Connecting flight got delayed by 2 hrs and 57 minutes leaving from Madrid. After 2 hours of hassle, Iberia airlines was able to put me on another flight from Madrid to London to NY."
Pros: "one of my employee was left at Spain because his information wasn't found in the your sistem. he is still in Spain and His name is Julio Cesar Paul."
Pros: "The BA staff was very courteous. I missed a connection and they put me on another flight."
Cons: "I didn't like how the itinerary only allowed for 1 hr at gatwick airport and I had to go through customs and security just to get from one terminal to another. I talked with one of the BA staff and they said that all of their operations are getting consolidated to one terminal so this shouldn't be a problem in the future."
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"
Pros: "shorter flight but they still offered us food, a drink, and tea. Also, shortly after the food was served a flight attended offered free newspapers."
Cons: "boarding was a little odd. we had to take a bus across the tarmac and board the pane from the ground. We were not sure what entrance was closest to our sets ended up going the long way."
Pros: "Food and space to seat"
Cons: "No wifi"
Cons: "Because our flight was late arriving into London, it caused us to miss our connecting flight and needless to say, there was an overwhelming oh well attitude from the Brittash Airways workers. We should have arrived home at 6:50pm but because of all the delays we didn't arrive home until 2am and WITHOUT our luggage. I'm beyond frustrated and exhausted."
Pros: "Was upgraded to business in my first leg."
Cons: "The flight was late, so I was going to miss my connection. I do not appreciate having to wait three hours just to get a new route, and much less the Iberia staff working "on behalf" of British Airways, blaming BA, the system and what not, and being unable to answer straightforward questions such as, Can you give me the confirmation number for the last leg of the flight so I can get a boarding pass in the United Airlines app. Uncommonly ignorant (I speak Spanish as my native language, so that was not the barrier) and uncommonly rude."
Pros: "The captain was very open about why we were delayed and when we were due to arrive. Each time our time slot got moved up he let us know."
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."
Pros: "Same as before. But I flew with Iberia."
Pros: "Good food Seats were reasonably comfortable Boarding process went ok"
Cons: "Ticket sold as BA, but was shifted to AA (I'm assuming this was due to overbooking) Old aircraft - no power on seats, old TV displays, limited movie selection."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and my husband and I felt really safe. Both the take off and landing were smooth as silk. Thank you, British Airways--the flight and everything about it was wonderful!"
Pros: "The flight was booked by British Airways but the flight was operated by Aer Lingus. The crew were very friendly and helpful. The food was good. The flight wasn't fully booked which helped with the level of comfort as I was able to spread out my things on the empty seat and tray table next to me. Otherwise it would have been a small space to live in for 7 hours"
Cons: "Aer Lingus charged about $6 for a glass of wine and alcoholic drinks. Other international airlines I've flown on include wine with lunch or dinner. Also there were no blankets available for the long flight, just pillows."
Cons: "El dia 27/marzo/16 volamos mi esposa, 4 hijos y yo de Madrid a Londres vuelo # 459, el cual llego tarde y perdimos la conexión del vuelo DIRECTO a San Diego # 273, nos mandaron vía Chicago y volvimos a perder la conexión a San Diego por pura lentitud del personal de British, teniendo que dormir en Chicago, nos dieron hospedaje y 100 dlls para cenar para 6 personas (gaste lo doble). Al día siguiente, estuve cerca de 90 minutos batallando para que me imprimieran los pases de abordar porque supuestamente British no había pagado los boletos a American Airlines. Les pido me recompensen con boletos redondos por todas estos inconvenientes. Saludos y gracias, Fernando Vizcarra"
Pros: "Lots of restroom, friendly staff."
Cons: "Food wasnt great. They announce that a english breakfast or omellete will be serve , but had a wrap instead. I delected tomato mozarella wrap and there nothing much in it. Mostly just a wrap. Disappointed on this. The lunch or dinner was good enough."
Pros: "Stewardess was very pleasant and managed youth group behaviors well!"
Pros: "Because the flight was about half full between Madrid and Dallas (a rather long flight!) and because my sweetheart and I were seated in the middle 5 seats alone, we were able to put the arm rests up and get some real sleep to acclimate to West Coast time (our final destination). I can never sleep very well sitting up. Also, the food and entertainment were pretty good. We were given two main meals and a few snacks in between, including chocolate ice cream, which I've never received on a plane before. All that in addition to the decent selection of recent movies available made for a relatively pleasant red eye flight."
Cons: "The entertainment system on the back of the seat was clearly outdated and the screens were not very reliable. While watching a movie, if the captain made an announcement, it was made in the headsets, too, as usual, but uncomfortably loud."
Pros: "Location in the aircraft"
