Cons: "I had a 14 hour layover in istanbul airport. Arrived at midnight and flight wasn’t until 2 pm the next day. I just assumed that they would give me a hotel. Come to find out thats wasnt the case when I landed. Given all kinds of reasons/excuses. The guy at the transfer desk told me”you should have known that your layover was this long since you booked it”. Will have second thoughts about flying Turkish again. Left a bad taste in my mouth. Might stick with Emirates or Qatar."
Cons: "The grilled cheese sandwiches. They've been in the menu for a while but my family does not enjoy them at all. Tuna sandwich on another flight was much better. Also lack of entertainment. They allow you to access it, then they turn it off. Is such a tease. Plane left late and kept us in very hot cabin."

Few options for beverages. Boarding: messy. You have a seating section for a reason (besides pricing). Also connecting flights from IST to the US are horrible. Four point checks and manual screening."
Pros: "Boarding and crew"
Cons: "Food. The veg options were very bad."
Cons: "I have had flight from New York to Tel Aviv with connection through Istanbul. The flight from JFK got delayed and for unknown reason when arriving to the gate in Istanbul my seat was given to other passengers - though I came to the gate before the boarding was closed.

Pros: "Most important all flights ran on schedule. Food service and quality were excellent and a great surprise Clean and new aircraft I would travel Turkish Air again and recommend to other friends"
Cons: "At 6'3" I was a bit jammed up in Economy Security was a bit overdone. Initial screening X-Ray carry on bags, thru metal detector. After landing Zurich--Istanbul, again thru xRay and hand screening, then again at gate complete screening again. I guess better too much than not enough."
Cons: "I was in group a. I was in line with others when the staff suddenly closed off group a and starting boarding group b. She wouldn't answer why I couldn't board. After letting group c board she told those of us in group a still in line to love over to the line for group c. It's not a big deal when one boards but this was annoying and rude"
Pros: "good food, offer different drinks, good service and polite, The take off and landing were so smooth."
Cons: "Due to a family emergency I was forced to change my flight to a later date and they did a terrible job handling. Would not allow me to change and charged me enormous change fees. I will never fly Turkish airlines again."

Cons: "Tight seat. Small space."
Pros: "Good service this morning"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Nothing. Every thing was great"
Pros: "chwcking in was very easy."
Cons: "No in board beverages. On flight from RDU to PHL beverages were served."

Cons: "Food, cramped seating."
Pros: "The check-in agent was very nice and patient"
Cons: "Our flight kept on getting delays, we were seated separated, a kid was hitting my seat during the whole flight even after skiing the mother to stop her child, not sure what is the solution there but I would suggest that in your announcements in the beginning you could mention a rule of respect to others like in the movies a little subtle regulation about other passengers space respect."
Pros: "Plane was on time."
Cons: "My seat assignment was in the last row of the plan when the plane was not full"
Cons: "The fact my flight was delayed three times...First delta said it was technical(mechanical) issues then sis it was the weather then said it was mechanical issues due to the weather. There were no compensation of the inconvenience it cause the customers."
Pros: "The woman who helped us at the desk by the gate was possibly the single most helpful, kind Delta employee I’ve ever met. She wheeled me down the jetway and upgraded our seats. I wish I knew her name. She has very curly dark blonde hair and is petite."
Pros: "My wife’s and my headphone connections would not work."
Pros: "see aqbove"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "The staff was incredible the plane was great. right on time"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Cons: "We landed at 2:14 p.m. but did not get our luggage until 3:38 p.m., with "priority" because we were traveling business class. Dozens of bags that were not "priority" preceded ours."
Cons: "The person sitting next to me what is not able to fit in their seat, therefore, he filled his seat and half of my seat. I don't think it's fair that I paid for a full seat and only was able to use half of my seat. I was incredibly uncomfortable the entire flight. I was pressed up against the window and against the stranger passenger that I did not know. By the end of the flight, my shirt and my pants are soaked with sweat, it was not my sweat."
Cons: "The flight was delayed just as we were about to board at 5:30. There was a mechanical problem and we were changed to another plane and another gate, which was supposed to take off at 6:30. It was boarded and ready to go around 7:00. Then....we taxied down the runway only to stop because of a situation on THIS plane (a light that did not go off). It was fixed pretty quickly and meanwhile a rep. from Delta boarded the plane, apologizing for our inconvenience and handed out Jolly Ranchers. REALLY? After that, she and the flight attendants did give us a free drink/headset coupon. That would have been nice but it expires Dec. 2017 and the flight attendant stopped serving drinks about half way down the aisle because the flight was so short. The coupon will be of no use to me. I finally got to Raleigh about 9:30...I booked the flight so I wouldn't have to drive at night.. Sigh....Delta used to be my favorite airline."
Pros: "I would like more detail about traveling companions displayed."
Pros: "Got there before ETA"
Cons: "Concourse was VERY FAR away and trains were not running☹️"
Cons: "I think I caught a stomach bug on one of the 3 legs of this route. More likely on last 2, i.e. Mumbai to RDU, as I fell sick almost 10-12 hrs after my last flight meal."
Pros: "Good Food Nice Flight Attendants"
Pros: "Staff were great.. landed smoothly"
Pros: "Wheeler chair service is available"
Cons: "Gate changed in the last minute and non-English speaking wheeler chair customer (my 89 years old mother) was left at the old gate by their wheeler chair services and no agent at the gate knew about her. Both round trip flights! This is totally NOT acceptable. She could have been lost and with no ability to help herself and miss the flights. It was lucky that she found Chinese speaking customers to help her."
Pros: "Pilot almost barrel-rolled us climbing out of JFK, so if started well enough.... Ground assistance (wheel chair) left me with a badly bruised left big toe and I didn't think we'd ever get through the TSA. The pat-down I received was more like a sexual assault and I didn't even get a happy ending. We made it to RDU, so the exercise was a success, but it was a huge hassle."
Cons: "After reading the good things, you need more bad?"
Cons: "The flight crew and staff were all great!"
Pros: "The crew was great and nice. Very professional and clearly made safety number one."
Cons: "We had an issue with the rudder that led to an aborted take off. Then when we finally got to RDU the ground crew was not available to marshal the plane in."
Pros: "The only positive of this leg is that it was less infuriating than the flight from RDU to Boston"
Cons: "Delta's partnership with Go Jet seriously compromises the legacy carrier's reputation. I am a Delta fan - although flexible enough to use other choices when necessary. I will no longer fly a Go Jet operated leg when other choices are available. For my trips to Boston, that means Jet Blue. Sorry Delta. I'll see you back on a true Delta route."
Cons: "delayed 2+ hours due to runway maintenance. You'd think those things would be better planned..."
Cons: "The delay on the runway"
Pros: "Hard to like anything with this delay -- missed 3 appointments in Raleigh."
Pros: "The food has REALLY improved!! GREAT CREW!"
Pros: "Crew aware of my children's nut allergy and chose not to serve"
Cons: "Coffee horrible"
Pros: "absolutely nothing"
Cons: "no food while waiting flight cancelled and no vendors open in the airport, stood in line for 4 hours only to be told no flights available, wasn't asked if they could feed me, put me up in a hotel, absolutely no compensation for me not being able to see my son graduate in the Air Force."
Pros: "The plane condition."
Cons: "The flight attendants could have served some drinks in between the meals. They actually refused to serve something additionally when asked."

Cons: "The seating space is horrendous, I am 5 ft 8 and felt like I was sitting with my knees at my chest, horrible horrible seating"
Cons: "Free wifi"
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable. Plane interior was in new condition, including electronic window shade tinting."
Cons: "Staff was not particularly warm or attentive. Was never offered more to drink, and after asking for more wine was ignored."

Pros: "The crew and the timing were ok"

Pros: "The crew was great but the seat wasn't as comfortable and didn't have much leg room."

Cons: "I wish they had WiFi"
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Lost all our bags so couldn’t ski"
Pros: "On time and friendly crew"
Cons: "Boarding needs improvement"
Cons: "Faultless handling of weather delay, causing missed connection and flight transfer. A well oiled machine, thank you."
Cons: "No reading light in my seat..."
Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "Service was poor, seat did not recline, and the food was terrible."
Cons: "Too much light in the cabin because of too many screens on. Should have a separate part of the cabin with screens off allowing one to sleep more easily."
Pros: "Gaps between seats are very narrow."
Cons: "when serving drinks, cabin crew limited to serve liquor only once and it was poor service."
Pros: "Nice people and good service"
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "Staff very pleasant"
Cons: "Evening snack was not the greatest breakfast was pretty food"
Pros: "The seat was spacious and the concept of the evening meal being the lighter option was innovative and well thought out"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic and congested with not much information or order."
Pros: "The flight to Gdansk took off and arrived on-time and the staff were professional."
Cons: "The flight to Amsterdam from Gdansk was late and I had to RUN to the connecting gate. 50 minutes is NOT ENOUGH time to go through passport control."
Pros: "I enjoyed the attention to detail and comfort. Helped to make the flight easier to handle."
Pros: "Friendly attendants. Decent food, and frequent snacks and beverages."
Cons: "No charging ports for electronic devices."
Pros: "Good service onboard, good food. On time."
Pros: "Sandwich was incredibly tasty (although not much filling)"

Cons: "The streaming service didn’t work"
Cons: "Bit cramped for space"
Pros: "The staff are the best European crews I have encountered. Naturally friendly, professional and fit looking. Nothing is too much trouble"
Pros: "In flight food was enjoyable"
Pros: "The cabin crew were pretty good. That's about all that was good."
Cons: "I paid almost $400 for upgraded seats. When I got to the airport-- no seats-- both ways!! i didn't even have regular seat assignments. I had to choose from the last few seats available. The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and polite! Entertainment system had some great movies at no additional cost."
Cons: "Poor communication between delta, KLM and Air France meant that I couldn’t check in online and get a digital boarding pass. Furthermore I couldn’t use the check-in kiosks because my name was listed as Reidmr instead of Reid, which meant that my boarding pass did not match my passport. Overall this caused unnecessary delays that were compounded by the fact that I couldn’t use my TSA precheck. My main problem on the plane was that I had to struggle to get water served to me. It’s always so dry on planes and I would have liked to be able to get more than one tiny glass of water at a time. Also, would have loved a window at my window seat. Plus no WIFI!?"
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Pros: "great choice of entertainment content, friendly crew"
Pros: "No chargers or tv on planes"
Cons: "At Amsterdam we were told that our checkin luggage wouldn't be at Sydney!! Some low fat meals were terrible!"
Pros: "Free wee cake."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Pros: "Loved this 747! Crew was professional and food was very good."
Cons: "We had a long wait (25 minutes) at the gate because we were early."
Pros: "Overall, my trip to Cardiff via Amsterdam was smooth and delightful. I've flown a few short trips this summer and I was pleasantly surprised to find KLM still offered complimentary snacks. What a refreshing change!"
Cons: "There was no entertainment which is why I assigned that category only one star. The boarding process in Amsterdam could have been a bit smoother. Announcements were no clear."
Pros: "Fortunately, the plane was not full, so people could spread out a bit to create extra room. The food was really good! (surprisingly)."
Cons: "KLM's new configuration for this type of plane made the seats even narrower than before. While leg room was reasonable, the 3 abreast seating meant a lot of discomfort, especially in the row right in front of the restroom."
Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliability."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."
Pros: "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: "Nice, turbulent-free flight. Food was good, service with a smile. Leg space was OK because Boeing 777s are usually better at this."
Cons: "Flight left over an hour late because of a sensor glitch. It is concerning when a technical glitch happens. But, the flight was smooth."
Cons: "Since we had two extra bags (paid for in Chicago), they demanded to see my receipt before we could board in Amsterdam to Nairobi. We had trouble locating the receipt and we were not given an explanation as to why we needed it again. We were traveling with 5 kids including an infant and we were not allowed to board until we found the receipt. I thought surely they would have record that I had paid, but I guess not. We were the last to board and all very stressed out. The staff seemed not to care the least in our troubles."
Pros: "Captain was updating us with the delay status."
Cons: "You have to be gold to get the priority boarding. In other countries I can do it with my silver status."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "I had booked a paid seat with extra legroom, but at check in the seat was given to another passenger"
Pros: "Lie Flat Seats were awesome. Service was excellent."
Pros: "Crew was great but at the airport they had us weight our carry on and then made us check it for 90 euro."
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable for long haul. Airbus 380 premier economy. Not enough reclining and leg support."
Pros: "Crew memebers"
Pros: "Great crew and entertainment. Terrible experience at CDG airport but that’s the airports fault."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and surprisingly the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "I think more attention should be paid to cleaning the plane and eeek, there was no liqueur in economy class. Music selection in entertainment should be wider too"
Pros: "Crew was attentive. Timings were spot on."
Cons: "Virtually no information at boarding which made everybody just make a huge line. Boarding they a bus, it was raining and we got wet."
Pros: "Fly was delayed.i was told my bag would go to end but it was not.instead of coming to the hotel 7pm i came 1am."
Cons: "Explain me to take the bag on time.it was almost left in the airport."
Pros: "Boarding procedures and crew were top. Wines and beverages excellent and even in super economy water was served several times"
Cons: "The food could have been much better, should consider doing everything organic. As it was, the chicken in the meal was awful, the dessert terrible. The rice in the salad hard, almost uncooked. The only good quality food was the bread and the cheese"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and seat in KQ is super comfortable in Business."
Pros: "Had decent room space seats comfortable"
Cons: "My luggage could have arrived for a start"
Cons: "Couldn’t understand announcements"
Pros: "Tight seat, was moved out of exit row because of my age"
Cons: "Could have stayed in exit row. Plan arrived in Moscow late so flight was over one hour late"
Cons: "Surprised one flight that from what it looked to be, once flight took off a older couple came out of the cockpit are and took a seat in business class. I thought I had seen someone in civilian clothes setting in a area right behind the pilots chair. They did return to cockpit area near end of flight"
Cons: "Too much time spent at boarding. On luggage missing."
Pros: "great food, entertainment and seat comfort"
Pros: "Air France personnel is always really helpful"
Cons: "Food and comfort in short haul are not the best - but the flight is short..."
Cons: "Better in flight entertainment"
Pros: "Very efficient boarding. We actually departed earlier and then landed in Barcelona 15 minutes ahead of schedule. Overall a very smooth experience."
Pros: "The staff were very helpful and professional. The air hostesses regularly checked if I was ok and showed concern when I wasn’t. They made what seemed a bad situation seem bearable."
Cons: "The food was not very nice and the option I wanted had run out. The entertainment was faulty and had to be reset several times. The comfort was below standard and needs to be improved."
Pros: "It was only 2 hours"
Cons: "Small plane, no movies"
Cons: "Being in the middle of the 4 seats with guys on both sides. They tend to restrict the space by using the arm rests."
Pros: "Over all everything was great, except the bags check in"
Pros: "Liked the transfer"
Cons: "Engine noise in the cabin is loud."
Pros: "Not much but the staff"
Cons: "No room, boarding was slow, zero bag or legroom"
Pros: "Flight crew, pilot,food and entertainment options were great"
Cons: "Baggage took a while to reach baggage claim but maybe a bit impatient after a long day"
Pros: "SFO - CDG (Air France) was a great journey in all respects. But the one major reason for that was, the middle seat was empty. I was so fresh after the journey, would definitely recommend this flight to anyone."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by atleast 45 mins and therefore had to rush at the CDG airport to catch the next flight."
Pros: "Flight attendant Ms. Sophie Picard made every extra effort to try to find a meal when they had run out of Business Class meals. She made up for the uncomfortable seating in Business Class."
Cons: "Business class seating on the AirBus 318 is very cramped."
Cons: "Plane left more than 40 minutes late with no explanation or apology."
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent"
Cons: "We were transported to the plane which was quite some distance to the plane via bus after climbing down steep stairs from the departure gate area. Then we had to climb steep steps in extremely hot weather. We were then delayed for a hour in the plane in very hot conditions as the plane had its air conditioning off and the ground air conditioning was not put on. We were swearing in the heat for an hour!! We arrived at our destination and hour and half late!!"
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 ."
Cons: "at no point when buying my ticket did the site say zero bags were included. In fact, when purchasing it said that information about baggage was not available.Shocked to have to pay 50 dollars for one bag. I am member of Flying Blue. One bag has always been included in the price of a ticket flying transatlantic."
Pros: "The noise-canceling headset is good."
Cons: "The premium economy seat is not reclined at all. The neighbor's seat is too much flexible. This is a maintenance problem. We report these problems to the crew, though there ignored... I should have chosen an economy class seat."
Pros: "The space and the people"
Pros: "Offering a drink on such a short flight is appreciated albeit unusual these days. Crew was very professional and friendly."
Pros: "Punctual, great food in Premium Economy, friendly crew."
Cons: "Took over 75 minutes (after arrival) for baggage to arrive on the carousel. Boarding area did not have well-defined lanes for different groups."
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 hostesses were very kind and nice"
Pros: "Always like Air France. They are in tune with keeping the traveler updated."
Cons: "Walked all over the terminal looking for signage for Croatia Airlines. Information services sent me to the right location, but it was marked Air France. I asked serval Air France employees for Croatia Air. None new that Air France was the CA carrier. Finally found one who bothered to look it up on her computer and low and behold, AF was the carrier!"
Pros: "Getting there on time despite delay"
Cons: "entertainment had very old media and no recent additions. Crew was not very organized"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Plane late departing allegedly because of cleaning the plane, but why was the cleaning done that late? Also, ground crew remarkably uninformed about what was going on in the plane. Poor communication between plane and ground crew. No explanation from pilot as to continuing reason for delay even after we boarded. Departure time, 1.00 pm, boarded at 1.10, actual departure time 1.45, causing me to almost miss my connection and definitely causing my bags to miss the connection."
Pros: "Traveled fron SFO to CDG on AF in business class on an A 380. Lounge in SFO was smallish and not many choices in the food bar. Boarding was smooth. my second ride on A 380 in business and this trip reminded me quickly why I did not care for the A 380 on my previous trip. It is a huge plane with a huge sized business class which makes the cost less worth it compared to a Boeing. The crew were extremely helpful and caring. The food was acceptable. The seats on the plane were not comfortable in the lying position. Took a cab to our hotel in Paris (1st Arr) for a flat 50 euros. No meters."
Cons: "Arriving in CDG and facing a slow immigration with the passengers of this huge plane. I didn't care for the baggage delivery system. We were waiting for an hour only to realize that the arrival port for our luggage was changed."
Pros: "Efficient check-in."
Cons: "It was raining in Prague so I can understand that luggage is going to get wet. But when we opened our luggage at least half of our clothes were wet. It would seem that the luggage sat out for quite a while prior to departure for that much soaking of clothes. Fortunately we are staying in Paris for a few days and can get our clothes dried out."
Cons: "Our first leg from Paris was delayed and we missed our flight to Dubrovnik. We then had to hire a car and drive 6 hours to ensure we wouldn't lose a day more of our holiday."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful Helpful, pleasant, capable"
Cons: "Waiting for late passengers & their luggage"
Pros: "I like that they still feed you and provide alcohol for free, even on a 40 min flight (unlike BA)."
Cons: "At one point during the flight I took a video out of my window with my camera, a member of the cabin crew barked at me in French. In bewilderment I asked her in English to repeat herself and she sarcastically repeated what she had said, in French, I asked for her to speak in English (which she had done to me previously on this Paris to London flight) yet again she scolded me in French. I was left absolutely none the wiser and it left a bad taste in my mouth."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Not enough room for legs. Small amounts of food. No entertainment."
Pros: "After riding in premium economy for the 8 hour flight we had, this one wasn't the same. No tvs, way less leg room, we were able to have a window seat which was great for my sister since before we didn't have the window seat option. The snack was good also."
Cons: "After riding in premium economy for the 8 hour flight we had, this one wasn't the same. No tvs, way less leg room."

Cons: "Virgin seats are not the best business class seats out there..."
Pros: "total flight bsolutely excelente custumer service stuffs was very friendly outbound and inbound no dilays"
Cons: "not aplicable"
Cons: "Dear Sir or Madam: My two colleagues and I bought our tickets from BWI to Geneva, via London Heathrow, through Kayak as I have many times in the past. However, the Kiwi.com travel agency did not flag that the ticket from BWI to London Heathrow allowed for one piece of checked luggage, but the ticket from London Heathrow onwards to Geneva did not allow for any checked luggage. Also astonishingly, we had to pass through Customs, reclaim our checked suitcases from the baggage carousel, and check in again through Customs to board the onward flight, both coming and going through London Heathrow. In addition to the extraordinary inconvenience that we could neither transit at London Heathrow to our connecting flight without going through Customs twice and that we could not check our luggage through to our final destination, we also had to foot a higher baggage charge to allow for checking in our suitcases, now that we had arrived in London Heathrow only to discover this that our onward ticket did not cover one piece of checked luggage. Had we known that the seemingly better price posted by Kiwi.com on Kayak’s comparative offerings came at such a high price of inconvenience and additional expense for the luggage, we would have taken our business elsewhere. It was deceptive of Kiwi.com to engage in such practices, even if it disclosed these conditions in fine print (for no one would expect, nor have I ever seen previously in the hundreds of flights I have taken as a Million Miler on United), without flagging this. And similarly, it was irresponsible of Kayak.com to allow this “apples with oranges” comparison on its website. I’m making three more international trips in December, but I’m inclined not to use either Kayak.com and most certainly not Kiwi.com for future airline ticket purchases."

Pros: "everything worked fine"
Pros: "Nothing comes to mind."
Cons: "Crew was not friendly at all. Why do they do this job if they hate dealing with the passengers? They act as if we are a burden to them."

Cons: "Seats not the best"
Pros: "personnel extremely courteous, helpful and looked like they enjoyed their vocstion."
Cons: "not being able to check bags thru entire trip from gerneva thru London to lax. had to travel thru customs etc to get backs and then travel to terminal 2 from terminal, awful experience. made connecting flight by 15 minutes."

Pros: "Efficient, on time"
Cons: "Crew was not friendly and a bare bones plane"
Pros: "flight was not crowded and service attentive and courteous"
Pros: "Was not able to check in for the flight on the ba.com. Called BA on the phone - no help. Person in the Geneva airport - unprofessional, unhelpful, had to go to another agent to get seat assignment. British Airlines - disappointing."
Cons: "Customer service - useless and with attitude. Couldn’t check in for the flight either on ba.com or over the phone."

Cons: "Coffee/tea was not free"

The flight was mostly empty yet no one suggested moving the baby and parents (to the back) or the passengers around the baby to seats that were more quiet."
Pros: "The crew members were cheerful and competent. No complaints."
Cons: "Security was slow, slow, slow and confusing. Arrived at gate after boarding had started. Did not like having to pay for a mediocre cup of coffee. Seats were not very comfortable and very cramped - and no, we are not overweight."
Pros: "I always enjoy the BA flights. The crew is always warm and welcoming and they run very efficiently."
Cons: "Plane was still dirty from the previous flight. First time I've every seen that. And there didn't seem to be a soft-drink service - even for a glass of water. All refreshments had to be purchased"
Cons: "My first leg flight was delayed and I booked through kayak on two different airlines and the first airline did not communicate with the second airline so 5 passengers ran to make the change and arrived 1 min after the jetbridge to get on the plane was pulled away. It was incredible frustrating and could have very easily been avoided with communication from the airlines"
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. The food advertised was not available."
Cons: "I am emerald on one world. In the departure flight I was not able ot reserve an aisle seat during online checkin ( need to get up on flights quite a bit for health reasons). I had been assigned a window although aisles, my preference, were available. I sought to change seats from window to aisle and would have been charged USD $18 (on a flight within europe - why dollars?). The BA staff said the website would be fine on the return journey - but it was not. I arrnved at teh airport (not having checked in as I didn't want a window) and the BA staff person in 46 at 6:45pm simply said that's impossible to change anything - no apology; she seemed rather irritated to be asked. I then went to security and the machine for priority queue did not permit me to enter - it said 'invalid ticket'. Then the flight was significantly delayed. So all in all not a great day."

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Last-minute gate change with no announcement."

Pros: "Good service on the flight. Good movie selection. The flight wasn't filled so there was room to breathe."

Pros: "Prompt flight. Food I flight service."
Cons: "Your ATM not working and my wife and i having to leave the line to another location we were directed. Even that took an extraordinarily long time. We also were forced to pay excess for our carry -on which was not required of us going to Geneva. The flight itself was uneventful."
