Cons: "The least comfortable and smallest narrow business class seats ever"
Pros: "Seats were ok. Crew was friendly, attentive and communicative."
Cons: "Not much in terms of entertainment"
Pros: "The crew provided the best service I think I’ve ever gotten on a flight. Attentive and friendly!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by three hours; not sure how to fix that but it was annoying. For some reason the arm rests in the middle of the seats would not go fully back and I felt like the flight attendants were talking down to me. They also could have been having a bad day too with the flight. :/"
Cons: "No food, no tv... nothing."
Cons: "No ability to charge devices during such a long flight"
Cons: "Not even water provided without charge on the morning flight from Portugal to London."
Pros: "On time and comfortable flight."
Cons: "No free snacks."
Cons: "The flight was an hour late leaving Rome. They did not even offer a complimentary drink for the inconvenience. Because it was late leaving Rome we missed our connecting flight from London to Chicago. Disappointed in lack of customer service!!!!!"
Pros: "Comfy, but small seats. Good food, nice crew"
Cons: "Small, old, buggy entertainment screen. Seats very narrow"
Pros: "The food, the staff and the free movie on the airplane."
Cons: "My American partner's passport expires 2 months after our return to the US. Unfortunately, the French issued a year ago the following rule: to enter France, the foreign passport must not expire at least 3 months after the return date. British Airways let us fly to London, explaining this to us, how it would be on us if there were problems further down, and that we would have to get our luggage in London. We chose to fly thinking it would be OK, we had listened to an online person who had had the same problem and the French later told him they would have let him in, also I am myself a dual citizen of France and the US, plus I am autistic, an invisible disability (in my case) that makes it impossible for me to travel alone. I usually do not even say it since not much is understood -by those who do not have it- on how to accommodate it However in London BA did not allow my partner to go on. Due to the fact yesterday was Easter Monday, the American consulate in London was closed. We have spent the night in a nearby motel and now, the next day, I am waiting alone back at the airport with our 2 large suitcases while my partner is at the American consulate. We are poor, do not have phone, currency or charger for England, and I do not do well with stress, so it is difficult. Now we cannot easily reach one another. We hope to be able to fly on a standby basis (that's what BA told us we could hopefully do) later today. Sorry for this long letter, I hope it does not bore whoever reads it (if it is even read :). Anne-Laure"
Pros: "- cabin staff were attentive and well trained"

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "The service was bad"
Pros: "Courteous, helpful and on time. Good price as well."
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Seats didn't recline, no entertainment, no beverage or food service. Delayed leaving and landing and the ground crew couldn't find a working jet bridge further delaying the disembarkment. I almost missed my connection despite a 90 minite layover."
Cons: "No food!!! No coffee!!! No water!!! "Brilliant" like low-cost !!!!! Incredible!!!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats ,nice crew"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled, it was very difficult for me to do all rearrangements."

Cons: "No snacks on a two hours flight? Have to pay extra???"
Pros: "Entertainment and space."
Cons: "Seat cushioning, and food quality."
Cons: "There was no food."
Cons: "When I got to London British airways refused to board the plane that was originally scheduled to leave for Warsaw because there were not enough passengers. That happened twice. I was at the airport for over 12hrs and the airline didn't offer an explanation at all or even a food voucher. It was tortourous"
Pros: "The staff were some of the friendliest I have encountered in recent traveling experiences. They were very attentive to every passenger."
Cons: "We only paid for economy seats, and unfortunately, it's hard to expect much more than what we got. The friendly service made up for the lack of comfort these seats provide."
Cons: "The flight left 2 hours late. The seats were cramped."
Cons: "Food, artificial not tasty"
Cons: "NO beverages, not even water, except for purchase"
Pros: "The crew The nice and friendly staff at the airport"
Cons: "Assigning one luggage per traveller"
Cons: "No internet on flight"
Pros: "They had a lot of entertainment options"
Cons: "I was skipped over when they served dinner"
Pros: "The only good thing was that the flight departed on time. On arrival we had to go into a holding pattern, then once on the ground, there was a glitch and we were held on the place for about 30 minutes. We did make our next flight, however, but some people missed theirs."
Cons: "No food was offered -- except to buy -- even though it was breakfast-time. This was a very disappointing flight!"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive"
Cons: "The flight was a bit delayed. Overall a good experience!"
Pros: "Good food, good service, everything on time."
Pros: "Nice cabin crew"
Cons: "Old media system and plane"
Pros: "Chair room"
Cons: "No free food"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "There was absolutely no room for me in the seat. It was very cramped. The planes from Dublin to Munich and Munich to London looked dated and shabby. There was no entertainment available. The food was mediocre to bad."
Pros: "Plane was nice"
Cons: "Didn't get food order correct"
Cons: "The only issue I had was having to check my bag. I didn't feel it was necessary."
Cons: "The seats are too comfortable"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Last-minute gate change with no announcement."
Pros: "I had heard that BA had the best service, configurations and staff in Europe. There wasn't much I liked on this flight. Didn't like concept on business class seats. The crew was cavalier about service. Small item, I was poured a glass of red wine and it was handed to me with spillage on the stem that dripped all over tray and me. No thought to wipe bottom before handing it to me. Everything about them was a lack of attention and asking for assistance was a bother. Food so so. Not impressed. They sold me a legal connection but my bag missed it. Landing disorganized. Busses to terminal took to long given we were 10 minutes late."
Cons: "Good movies. Limited selection. But old British TV shows fun."
Pros: "Because of a sudden mobility problem, for the first time ever I requested mobility assistance. I assume your personnel providing this assistance are some of your lower paid. Their assistance in Bangkok, London and Manchester was fantastic; I wish I had recorded the names of each helper so I could praise them individually. They smoothly got us through check-in procedures, delivered us to boarding gates. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble to them. They made what might have been an unbearable trip totally trouble free. Thank you all."
Pros: "Crew is extraordinary kind and pleasant."
Cons: "Small, small seats"
Pros: "It all went smoothly and was on time"
Pros: "Arrived early and smooth flight !!!!"
Cons: "Service was good a quick flight ."
Pros: "Crew fabulous. Comfortable plane and seats."
Cons: "This leg was fine. Would give BA high marks"
Pros: "Food was good and crew was very nice"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "More leg room"
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "Was late. Almost missed me next flight."
Pros: "Seat assignment process was great and considerate of my preferences."
Cons: "If AA could fix its luggage handling process that would be great. BOTH (!) of my bags have been lost on this flight. Both have been eventually located, recovered and delivered to me, but experience was not pleasant this time."
Cons: "Flight delayed one hour"
Pros: "The crew was nice as was the meal"
Pros: "Flight was on time. They fed us two meals."
Cons: "Seats in coach are incredibly cramped, and blankets are comically small. The food was pretty terrible and the vegetarian option not particularly nutritious."
Pros: "For a long-distance flighty the seats were so cramped. They wanted me to pay $100 to move to an open window seat next to me."
Pros: "The crew were great and the flight was quick."
Cons: "The blankets are really thin and so we were cold. They do not offer eye masks anymore. So sad"
Pros: "Crew was kind & friendly. They found my wife and I empty seats where we could stretch out. Food was great too. No complaints."
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "Couldn’t get the tv to work very well."
Pros: "The cabin attendants were mostly cheerful"
Pros: "Only one screaming kid. I was allowed to move to another seat"
Cons: "Food was good. Crew nice"
Pros: "Liked the entertainment and drinks service"
Cons: "Very tight for space."
Cons: "It was not clear that I needed a different 6 letter code to checkin using the AA website. I finally got frustrated and called AA only to find out the code was different. The codes should have been the same or you should have referenced it on the website when I tried to check in"
Cons: "Three + hour delay out of ORD, equipment problems. Even though she had a boarding pass, they would not allow wife to board. Some ticketing problem between AA and BA. Finally, they let her on. We were the last to board."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by untold circumstances causing us to miss our connecting flight to Venice."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Food was so bad The seats were so cramped"
Pros: "Quite new plane, clean. Some of the staff were friendly."
Cons: "Flight was delayed vecause there was no pilot for one hour. We missed connecting flight and ended up with several delayed flights, so our 11 hour trip turned out to be 32 hour long. Also, they messed up with food order, but after some time they managed to bring suitable food from business class. Some of the staff was unfriendly and whining. And our party of three was scattered around the plane, other families sitting nearby too. A little bit greedy company selling seat selection option when they could arrangeit nicely, but just don’t do it in order to get few people to pay for otherwise normal thing."
Cons: "Seats a bit uncomfortable. The angled cubical is a bit confining. Seat belts are short so tough to roll over in the full sleeping position."
Pros: "A 2 hr delay after boarding with precious little communication from the crew."
Pros: "crew was great, plane seemed newer and clean. individual screens worked better than others I've used in flights."
Cons: "newer touch screens were great except viewing angle couldn't be adjusted. standard food was horrible, esp for an international flight; not sure if specialty diets have better meals. kid movies were dubbed into many language options but Chinese was not one for ANY kid films. bathrooms with the same crappy mini sinks that you can't really wash your hands in, esp if someone pukes in it. they should all learn from Japan's ANA airliners with the motion sensor sinks with faucets raised up high enough for you to wash your hands without touching the gross basin."
Pros: "On time good service"
Cons: "Unnecessary delay in the flight."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was great"
Pros: "Check in staff were very good.Lots of entertainment choices. Very comfortable seating,was worth the extra price."
Cons: "I went to check in with Iberia airlines as the flight information said. Desk was closed. Went to American airlines as suggested by airport staff, which was correct. Completely different terminal,we were lucky we had 3 hours between connections, the whole process took over an hour. Very confusing. The plane was American Airlines, Iberia was not mentioned anywhere else,very confusing. Dinner was served within an hour of taking off at 11pm, which we didnt have, but then nothing until an hour before landing and very hurried. Staff had been very busy chatting in the galley. No snacks available. Had a group of rowdy and rude passengers near us, not alcohol related. I think staff shoud have had a word with them, it looked like they didnt want to know, another passenger finaly did after 5 patient hours. Arrived in London, our bags did not. Staff were good. They found the error straight away. They delivered them to our home the next day which was a very good service."
Cons: "Having to step down very steep stairs after an overnight flight and then board a bus whose driver is not sensitive to the fact that many are standing when he makes right angle turns. It was cool outside as well and all my winter clothing was in my checked bag. I had not known I would be exposed to the elements at the end of the flight. I could have been warned!"
Pros: "On time!!"
Pros: "Great plus amenities if watching flight."
Cons: "The breakfast, no hot meal just sugary food."
Pros: "Almost empty in economy"
Cons: "I liked everything"
Pros: "seat was comfortable. flight almost on time food was poor"
Cons: "food was poor"
Pros: "I'm gluten free & I don't eat pork so I would like a gluten free no pork option!"
Pros: "New aircraft with good entertainment system. Did not crash."
Cons: "Very tight seat spacing in pitch and width. Screen did not tilt so even with the very minimal backrest recline viewing was not ideal. This was to "punish" me for not buying the various seating upcharges American tag onto the ticket price. It was a low cost ticket on a very convenient transatlantic flight from RDU, "Easyjet" pricing brings "Easyjet" seating. I have flow a lot, 3MM miles on UA alone, and this reminded me why AA did not get much of my business! I will have to revert to the "Continentalised" UA (another sore point!)."
Pros: "Movies. Safety of flight"
Cons: "Food Too crowed seats no room to breath"
Cons: "All was excellent! Only the internet was not working good , payed for all flight access but most of the time the internet was not working. Anyway I contacted support team and they refunded me"
Pros: "Smooth flight, excellent service and good food."
Cons: "The food, the salad can be better, there should be more on the tray than offered"
Pros: "That I was found an alternative flight and was boarded swiftly."
Cons: "That my flight was delayed four hours or more and then cancelled so I had to be transferred to a totally different flight in the early hours of the morning and that my luggage was delayed and travelled on a different flight to mine. The entire experience was very discouraging."
Pros: "Boarding, staff, service, arrival all great"
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "I liked the crew, they were nice and tried to help, food and refreshment was good."
Cons: "1) Flight from Dallas delayed and caused me to miss the connecting flight from London to Vienna. 2) Monitor for the entertainment not working AT ALL. Crew tried to reset it multiple times, but it didn't help. So flight was longer due to delay and I was looking at the BLACK SCREEN entire time. 3) I attempted to read my book. Since it was a night flight and overhead lights were off to prevent disturbance, I needed to use reading light. Well, the reading light was not working. I called a flight attendant to assist me. She tried to help me, but confirmed that it was out of order. 4) There was not information regarding terminal for my connecting flight. Captain kindly referred us to look up this information on our individual screens. Mine was not working, neither was the screen of the passengers next to me. Not helpful at all."
Cons: "This made the check in process extremely frustrating and confusing. Traveling with my elderly dad who had to squeeze between two large men for 7 hours because people who actually booked the airline got priority seating. We had to pay an extra $500 to upgrade to comfortable seats. Not pleased w Kayak."
Pros: "Clean and new airplane. Crew was very nice"
Cons: "People in front of us were reclining the entire time and our seats right behind them were tight. Did not like having to pay extra for seats"
Cons: "The woman in front of me pushed her seat all the way back. The people behind me were from Africa, and they talked really loudly. They didn't need to yell. Finally, why does American Airlines load the plane with the people who sit at the front first? It makes NO SENSE. Put the people who sit in the back on first. That way, you don't have to try to get past people in the front who are still trying to load their stuff or get seated. There has got to be a more efficient way of getting off the plane. We stood and stood waiting for passengers to get their stuff and disembark."
Pros: "There were a lot of entertainment options, the seats were comfortable, staff was attentive, and two meals were included."
Cons: "Getting around London Heathrow was a pain and took a long time."
Cons: "we order kosher food for the flights, on the first flight we recive only for 1 pessanger so on the way back we call few days before to the airlines company to confirm that is kosher food for both passengers and they confirm and again we didnt recive only 1 passanger recive for flight over 20 hours way to be with out food"
Pros: "The airline was great."
Cons: "It airfare.......I've never in my life had to deal with such an unprofessional company in my entire life! I'm honestly shocked that you use them considering your a creditable company. I was screamed and cursed at hung up on and also cancelled off my flight the morning of and then had to pay an additional $100 to get back onto the flight! When I checked online they have nothing but bad reviews. Unfortunately I will not be booking through kayak again in fear of having to deal with airfare."
Pros: "The upgrade to main cabin extra was worth the cost. Extra leg room, entertainment options, and room to breathe when the passenger in cent leans all the way back made a long flight more than bearable. The crew handled themselves and us very well."
Pros: "Slick boarding"
Cons: "No movies on way out."
Pros: "Boarding was on time and ran smoothly. In flight crew was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "We did not have dinner as we tried to get some sleep on this 6.5 hour overnight flight to London. The 767 was in a 2-3-2 configuration for economy plus and general economy. Thankfully they kept the temps cool to the point where we used our coats as additional blankets. I appreciated that the FA’s did not wake us for dinner and they closed my window shade at some point. They were 100% polite and helpful. That said, with the new Polaris Business Sears, UAL has eliminated the restrooms between Business and Economy. So it is a very long walk to the restrooms from Econ Plus and it appears that there are only 4 restrooms for about 120 passengers. Absurd. My family made do because we used the restrooms in the middle of the night when most people were sleeping but this would have been a nightmare after breakfast or with a small child. It appears that UAL has gone for profit over customer satisfaction."
Cons: "Food vegan"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and courteous."
Cons: "We arrived at the airport over an hour before the scheduled departure time, per TSA suggestions, and it was way too early. Perhaps a half hour before boarding from smaller cities would be more suitable."
Pros: "The entertainment and crew made it one of the most pleasant flights I’ve been on."
Cons: "The main course was quite gross, but the croissant was nice."
Cons: "Few more food options"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and I appreciated the entertainment options"
Cons: "I have a receipt showing Austrian airlines, was unable to check in online, so I waited in a very long line to get to the Austrian counter only to be told that my flight was actually a United flight and I would need to go wait in that long line for my ticket."
Pros: "Crew attentive and always offering refreshments."
Pros: "Flight attendants were absolutely amazing!!!!! They made the trip very enjoyable!"
Pros: "Seats were the most uncomfortable I've experienced in years"
Pros: "The crew and the food was good."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and one of our bags was left in London."
Cons: "Wholly inaccurate and frankly FALSE information about baggage policies and seating. This was advertised and linked to the baggage policy of Austrian Airlines. I learned at the airport that I would be charged for bags, by United. I am inclined to never use Kayak, Austrian, or United ever again."
Pros: "Meals were good, good service, complimentary food and drink at good intervals"
Pros: "IT WAS UNEVENTFUL WHICH IS WHAT YOU WANT. CREW WAS VERY NICE AND NO CRYING YOUNGSTERS."
Pros: "The crew were super! Extremely attentive and always gracious."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Left on time. Food was better than usual."
Cons: "Audio options were v poor. Not enough leg room even for a small person like me. Stewardesses were too rushed and not v pleasant."
Pros: "Crew were nice; movie selection was very good"
Cons: "It was so so cramped, and the area under the seat in front of me had a support/leg of the seat in front of me right in the way, so I couldn't stretch my legs nor store my bag there. Such disastrous design."
Pros: "The service was excellent and the food choices were great. I enjoyed several hours of dimmed lighting, which helped with sleeping and kept my five year old daughter calm. The staff were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "One irritation was that the temperature of the plane was too cold and we have a/c blowing in our faces most of the trip. We couldn't control it from our overhead fans, so we were a bit chilly."
Cons: "board . The door was closed & we waited for 2 economy passengers - took an hour . mY experience - once the door is closed , it does not open until the plane reaches the destination ."
Cons: "Flight was freezing cold and staff were very rude. Worst flight I have ever been on."
Pros: "Nothing at all!!! That should really tell you something!"
Cons: "The staff were rude, abrasive, ignored several passengers that were trying to get her attention before take off as 2 overhead bins were wide open and full to the brim. She of course was too busy playing on her cell phone in the back of the plane and ignored/silenced the passenger call button. They were so loud when people were sleeping, yelling ‘trash please’ every 5 minutes, we are not stupid, we can see what you are doing and if we have trash, we will give it to you - so please STOP disturbing my peace and let me bloody sleep!!!! I was never offered any food or drink during the entire flight, not even when I was awake - other airline attendants are more observant and come back and ask us when we are awake if we would like anything to eat or drink. So essentially that was 7 hours with nothing after having paid a little over $700 for what was seemingly the WORST transatlantic flight I’ve ever taken. I travel back and forth often, because I’m a dual national, but I will stick to BA or Virgin Atlantic - the planes and service are far superior to this pile of turd that goes by the name of United. There were no charging facilities (power outlet or USB port) and the TVs had such horrendous resolution that you would get a headache from having to squint at the screen."
Pros: "Flight, crew and reasonable comfort for economy class."
Cons: "Nothing significant."
Pros: "The flight attendants were cheery and quick with their service. Was very impressed."
Cons: "I was sitting in the row behind the extra leg room seat. When they were fully reclined, I could not open my laptop fully, so I had to work with my laptop screen angled toward me. The seat back entertainment screen was impossible to see when the seat in front of me was reclined as well, and the screen did not adjust/tilt. Worst of all, it was extremely difficult to get out of the seat."
Cons: "I thought it was very misleading that my ticket that was emailed to me said "Austrian Airlines" so I got dropped off at the first terminal. But when I arrived, the attendant told me even though it says Austrian, that really Im flying with United. I had to walk 15 mins all the way to Terminal 7. This was a total let down. why was my actual airline not listed ?"
Pros: "I likedthe ease of ticketing, well-organized boarding procedures and flying on a soon-to-be retired 747."
Cons: "I was most fortunate to have an empty seat next to me, but cramped seating makes it hard to be comfortable for 10.5 hours."
Pros: "Three seats to myself, not crowded."
Pros: "Free food and drinks"
Cons: "Wish there was an option for me or even Lufthansa to resell the ticket I couldn't use. $500 wasted"
Cons: "Was surprised to receive dinner and wished they had not served so we could have more quiet time."
Pros: "It was an efficient flight. My only suggestion is for the flight attendants to receive some training on the finesse of service. They could be abrupt and mechanical rather than service oriented."
Pros: "Flight attendant service was great."
Cons: "I'm tall and the seats are cramped."
Pros: "The crew and captain were amazing dealing with us during a terrible, late night delay. They constantly kept us updated about what was happening and were constantly walking around to ensure all of our needs were met."
Cons: "The plane was absolutely horrible. Two bathrooms and the in-flight entertainment did not work as well as most reading lights. A door sensor wasn't working correctly which cost us another hour of waiting for a technician to come and repair/reset the sensor."
Pros: "I had the worst experience."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled in Munich and I was rerouted to Rome, Italy. In Italy they didn't find my ticket and I was made to wait an extra 4 hours. My carry-on bag was taken in London, as there was not enough room on the fight to Munich, but then when I finally got to Cairo, one day after I was supposed to arrive, both bags were lost and I stayed one week without anything. I missed an entire day of my vacation because of the cancellation and confusion in Rome. I am a Gold Star Alliance member and this was the WORST flight in I have ever taken in my LIFE!"
Cons: "No food no entertainment"
Pros: "Missing my connection due a security in Newark the plan was 2 h delay"
Pros: "It was nice to get free wine on the flight. Had I know what I was about to endure I likely would have had more. Honestly. I am uncertain how you can stay in business."
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was way too cold and the excuse of a blanket is really insulting to be warm enough to sleep. The video screen was tiny and grainy. Every time the PA system was used it buzzed so whatever was being said wasn't comprehend-able. The biggest complaint was the seating room. I understand that you want to get people into more legroom seats but honestly there should be a regulation for the inhumane way you treated those of us that did not ante up more! I thought I alone have these opinions but once you get me back home, you loose my business forever. I will take my Transatlantic flights every six weeks elsewhere."
Cons: "HUGE DELAY. MISSED CONNECTION. CONSTANT UNCERTAINTY"
Pros: "Vegetarian meal good taste."
Cons: "Hour delay by "catering", missed connect at LHR. (United's booking too tight also). TV screen needed "reboot", flight announcements piercingly loud. Requested gluten free meal not provided."
Pros: "not to mention non existent entertainment. TV never worked no.map. no interesting info from pilot unlike last pilot we'd had on this flight who'd given us great information on our flight. no apologies. we were told about 50 tvs were out on the flight. the chicken meal was delicious pasta awful (we shared because of that). the couscous salad which lady flight had been super this time was too spicy for us much less if we'd bought a child. if this is the positive ... we got there safely and the boarding was better than sometimes."
Cons: "see above. united which ran this flight more intent on telling you what you can't do than making it a pleasant flight. no entertainment. 75 per cent of food was inedible. will be looking at Ba in future or Virgin despite being United mileage plus members. how about some customer service training?! as a repressed brit living in us I'm not normally a picky passenger. but a smile? sorry the movies aren't working? hi? just the greeting over the intercom makes you feel as if you are an inconvenience. not friendly skies thus time. put off."
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "UA flights always get delayed and this time I failed to catch my connecting flight to London. I was rescheduled to the flight in the morning of the second day. And when we were heading for London half way, the pilot said some sensors stopped working and we had to come back to Dulles. To be honest, I will never take UA flights anymore, it is just TERRIBLE!"
Cons: "Touch screen broken on TV. I couldn't watch the films I wanted to watch."
Pros: "It was a old plane , entertainment was horrible . There was no choice of movies and other channels . For a flight this long they should have thought about this"
Pros: "Meals, for a coach ticket, were surprisingly good."
Pros: "I'm home safe"
Cons: "The delay"
