Pros: The service and patience
Cons: Everything was great
Pros: The service and patience
Cons: Everything was great
Pros: Comfortable seating, pleasant food and entertainment.
Cons: Not being charged $1200 for a ticket that I already bought, but had been voided with no notice. And Virgin Atlantic staff not friendly or helpful in any way with this situation.
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: Crew was very attentive...food selection was excellent
Pros: Nice crew
Cons: Comfort. Seats were very uncomfortable with absolutely NO leg room. I fly a lot and this was one of the WORST leg room experiences I had.
Pros: Karl was amazing! So helpful and sweet!
Cons: Having the crew tell the guy behind me to plug in his ear phones to watch the video in his phone, rather than me after 20 minutes of noise.
Cons: Media screens are old and miscalibrated. Selection was decent. Food is probably average for the industry which to me is worse than fast food.
Cons: The food is not very good at all. One mediocre meal served soon after take-off, then for the rest of the flight tasteless, cardboard pasties and wraps.
Cons: at last minute itinerary was changed.. instead of routing through Brisbane, was now routed through Sydney. Flight from Sydney to LAX was delayed by 4 hours, then missed flight LAX to LAS... overall long delayed arrival. Checked the route through Brisbane, and those flights we're all there, departed and landed all on-time... so wondering what the reason was for the change of the itinerary without a cause (no cancel or delayed flights through Brisbane)
Pros: Crew was very nice. Food was very good and plentiful. Entertainment was good. Overall the very long flight was better than expected.
Cons: It took forever to board in Sydney with all passengers standing and waiting for 45 minutes and never being told what was going on. I resented having my passport and ticket demanded at least 4 times. A bit overkill and a power trip by security. Absolutely despise airport security...there is no uniformity.
Pros: - Presence of entire box sets of some TV shows was a nice touch that I made good use of.
Cons: - EVERY damn movie is prefaced by 4 minutes of ads. - The touchscreens (at least in economy) are slow resistive screens that are horrible for fine control gestures (like slightly changing the volume or position)
Pros: Everything was good in this flight
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.
Cons: Bathrooms needed more cleaning mid-flight.
Pros: Crew was amazing and we got fed so often. The movie choices were good.
Cons: I wish I could have ordered a drink (pay or otherwise) from the tv in front of me
Cons: Missed connection to SFO
Pros: The crew was professional, responsive and friendly.
Cons: The following experience goes down in history as the worst ever because: we had a 3.5 year old child, and mom and dad seated directly in front of our row. The couple ignored the instructions to move seats forward during meals making it impossible to eat. They placed their luggage in the overhead compartment belonging to both rows, which wasn't a problem if they hadn't proceeded to open and close the compartment every 20 minutes. The 300 pd dad repeatedly stepped on my broken toe while reaching for his luggage, while rattling around and disturbing sleeping passengers. And, sadly the child repeatedly threw temper tantrums without any care or effort of intervention from the parents. In short, they terrorized the surrounding travellers. In contrast, my outbound flight, also had a family seated in the row directly in front. This family was the antithesis, considerate and respectful of their fellow passengers. Susan Laws
Pros: Everything about my flights on Virgin Atlantic was amazing. The plane was new and comfortable, the seats seemed to recline more than in other airplane I have been. The entertainment was good with a wide selection of movies and TV shows. The crew was incredibly nice and helpful and I had a really pleasant time talking with them. On the airport team side I can also say they were extremely helpful as I missed my flight and they promptly rebooked me on the next one 3h later, free of charge. I think the stress of missing a flight was completely deflected by the help of the Virgin Atlantic crew at the desk so thank you for that!
Cons: The only thing I would improve is the main dish in the meal. I loved all the small sides like the Boursin and crackers but I found the main meal a little bland l.
Cons: The flight change the gate number immediately so I missed my flight
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.
Cons: For oversea traveling, food could and should be better. For our flight from AKL to BNE, we had to pay for our soft drink!!!
Pros: Nothing really!
Cons: I was coming from Sydney and I have to hurry up to take the other fly to Newark and didn’t have time to buy for nothing to eat but I was very surprised they didn’t offer me anything on the plane and when I ask they I have buy it online and didn’t have many choices anyway, I very disappointed with this fly.
Pros: The crew were very polite and looked smart, I didn’t find them very personable at all though. The entertainment system is fantastic and my meal was ok I guess, I requested the low fat meal, probably should’ve just had the normal one.
Cons: The seats are not very comfortable, very hard and textured seats that just don’t feel nice at all especially on a long flight. I weight about 11 stone (154 pounds) and even I felt like I was taking up a lot of room in my seat.
Cons: Everything about my experience was HORRIBLE.
Pros: The crew was friendly and professional, the food was good and offered frequently due to the long flight time (10.5 hours). The plane was comfortable even though nearly full. Overall, it was a good experience and I would definitely fly with Virgin Atlantic again.
Cons: Food was terrible
Cons: During my flight from LAX to LHR I requested (pre-booked) a special meal (Asian Vegetarian). During the flight I was told there was no such request in their records and therefore I had to stay hungry for the entire duration of the flight. During my return flight from LHR to LAX the in flight entertainment system for my seat was not functional. I requested it to be reset several times and in spite of the hostess resetting it several times, it did not function. I had to stay without an entertainment system during the entire flight. This was my first time travel with Virgin Atlantic. I may never fly Virgin Atlantic again.
Pros: Leg room in economy was good. Staff very professional and made a long flight bearable.
Cons: At check in the name on my reservation read Ron, not Ronald which is on my passport. The second agent I was referred to was unpleasant and charging $100. Had same problem out of Seoul but there was no charge for the ticket change. My interaction with the second agent left a very bad taste in my mouth.
Pros: Food, crew, entertainment great
Cons: Seat were very uncomfortable.. hard, not enough leg room and there was no way to sleep comfortably with the head rest that is set up so you can rest your head on it,but its awkward and hard an in the way...
Cons: Food was awful. Sorry. Breakfast was unrecognizable. Landed hungry.
Pros: the crew were the friendliest I've flown with (Irish & British)... the lighting was very relaxing and the continuous snack service was much appreciated (especially ice cream).. gonna try premium economy next time as the seats looked even better...
Cons: Vera the entertainment screen was very good but there were no newly released movies, everything seemed to be a couple of months old... the leather headrest was comfortable but kept slipping down to behind my neck, would be nice if it was lockable in position..
Pros: I wish I knew the name of the crew on this flight so that credit is given where it's due. A female steward was incredibly kind to me. She allowed me space to cry in the back of the aircraft, and also gave me her personal tissues. Her care is the only reason I'd give this flight an 'okay.'
Cons: Unlike the incredibly kind woman, another woman on the crew was incredibly rude to me and to other passengers on the plane. She was very obviously annoyed with nearly everything on that flight. The restrooms were beyond disgusting. I have never flown on a flight with a restroom that awful; it smelled horrible and was filthy. It was reminiscent of a portable outhouse, no exaggeration. The pillow on my seat had makeup on it.
Pros: I've had knee surgery and the flight attendants were very accommodating as to "make" and ice pack for me. The recline of the seats was impecible. The food was great. Overall, great flight.
Pros: Legroom was much better than on U.S. carriers doing same long trip.
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: Makes travels to LAX a little easier for us dedicated Virgin Melbourne folk. Can. Ow fly direct to LAX without going through Brisbane and Sydney. Food was great. Boarding seemed a little slow. Flight was smooth and on time. Welcome back Virgin.
Pros: Very nice staff
Pros: Australian airports are wonderful.
Pros: Great direct flight. Quit on the plane. Plenty of time to rest and sleep
Pros: The crew where very attentive and helpful.
Cons: The ticket agent was anal about 1-2 kgs for our checked luggage and even weighed our carry on luggage...which no agent had done on our entire trip from atlanta to melb. Seemed pointless and a hassle for 1-2 kgs.
Pros: Dinner was fantastic! Excellent meal. Flight crew were terrific as well.
Cons: Dislike the recent removal of onboard snacks. It's a very long flight. Nuts or chips or cheese and crackers would be very helpful. Had no idea this service was discontinued until way into the flight. Not sure why it was stopped. Btw I don't believe this was a Virgin Atlantic flight, I believe it was Virgin AUSTRALIA. Think you have names backwards on survey.
Cons: Entertainment system was good, and I felt that you appeared to have more leg room in economy than other airlines.
Cons: You lost our luggage. We were able to pick up our luggage after the Sydney flight, but they never made it to Minneapolis. What I don't understand is why we were not able to get boarding passes and seat assignments when we did our check-in in Sydney? Why is that so hard? Also, when we were getting our boarding pass in LAX it was so confusing when it asked for checked bags. Our bags were already on a belt going to who knows where - were we supposed to check "yes"? If we had a boarding pass this would not have been an issue.
Pros: Crew was awesome and their service was great. I liked that they put snacks like fruit out to eat during the flight.
Cons: The meals were terrible. I flew on VA a couple of years ago and the food was very good but it has really gone down since then.
Cons: Customer service was horrible - they were so rude on the plane Food was done by the time it was our turn I got food poising off of the breakfast horrible
Cons: Boarding process was unorganized. Food was mediocre compared to emirates. Video monitor was poorly designed and limited options on movies and languages. Crew is just average compared to other airlines Online checkin and seating choices were difficult to do and not user friendly
Pros: Superior comfort, class, and style. The crew was friendly and accommodating, the pilots kept you up to date with flight info and departure/arrival time (and kept the seat belt light off almost the entire trip), the food was delicious and offered throughout, and the entertainment was top notch. Seats were comfortable (we had bulkhead row Space+ and they were worth every cent for the international long haul from LAX-BNE and SYD-LAX) and everyone got a pillow/blanket. We got premium noise-canceling headsets, water, and a little care kit including an eye mask and earplugs and a pen to fill out your travel documents. The overhead bin space was huge and we got two free checked bags of luggage up to 50lbs each (I don't know of that's standard or not, or if it came with Space+ seats). SERIOUSLY the best airline.
Cons: Absolutely nothing. For a long haul flight, Virgin Australia is TOP NOTCH!
Pros: Flight crew was awesome in premium economy
Cons: The plane was really dirty!!!!
Pros: Nice food
Pros: The crew was professional & friendly
Cons: Food was terrible honestly, entertainment system didn't work on 1st flight.
Pros: Almost everything, especially the crew.
Cons: Don’t feel like anything should be better to be honest
Pros: economy plus seats were nice, great movie selection, especially international movies
Cons: crew was not friendly, i had to ask for water many times, usually water person walk the aisle. food was terrible. other carriers food were better
Cons: The KLM crew are always great serving and treating you. Well above many other airlines.
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: the drinks
Cons: seat reservation. having to pay for luggage....
Cons: This return flight was much better than the flight going to Amsterdam. I believe the biggest factor was the type of aircraft. The old 747 just didn't meet expectations. The newer 777 on the way back was much more comfortable, with better amenities.
Pros: Seat space a bit tight . I should have upgraded to more leg room . Next time!
Cons: Larger meals.
Pros: Best airline in the business quick efficient and outstanding service What else can you say
Pros: And i got it 2 days later. I had to buy a lot of items which were in my suitcase The returning of the suitcase was awfull. In tge end after many phone calls I received it On the 18/12 evening, 2 days after my landing
Pros: The crew was really friendly.
Cons: There was a Force Majeur delay in Helsinki due to wings freezing that caused 20 minute delay to Amsterdam and made the interchange stressful.
Cons: Landlords gave an unpleasant service! Which continued with late of 50min of the flight, they didn’t do anything to help/ to provide the passengers the answers. The food was cold It was comfort place to sit. Bad experience with KLM
Pros: Very attentive crew. Attended to needs immediately. Took a lot of time with each person when someone had something to say.
Cons: The seat I had with no seats in front of me was very small. Much smaller than the other economy seats because the tray table and video screen were in the armrests. Paid extra for the legroom by ended up losing it side to side. Really had to squeeze into the seat.
Pros: Very friendly onboard personnel - I really had kind of homy feeling.
Pros: Crew was excellent -kind nice and very attentive
Cons: Entertainment went out mid flight. Had to be reset off 30 mins but cam back up
Pros: Amsterdam airport and Rome airport were as breeze to navigate, even only knowing English
Pros: Face recognition was amazing
Cons: Too hot on plane
Pros: Everything was clean and well organized.
Cons: The flight was delayed 1 1/2 hours.
Pros: Everything was great! Crew incredible. They acknowledged my wife’s birthday and made her feel special. Food was ultra salubrious. Loved the big screen monitor.
Cons: No complaints about anything.
Pros: I am so grateful to have been provided delicious and filling vegan meals on this long flight. Thank you for offering a dietary option that is compassionate toward animals and contributes less to climate change! Now if only the planes were powered by clean, renewable energy... Hopefully that will become a reality someday very soon! Oh, and also the crew on this flight was exceptionally kind and helpful. Thank you so much!
Cons: I did not enjoy the turbulence, which I suppose is unavoidable. More importantly, I felt quite guilty about the greenhouse gas emissions of my flight. I have decided to cut down on my air travel as much as possible as a way of reducing my carbon footprint.
Pros: Seats were very comfortable, food was excellent, the staff was very nice, cabin was quite and roomy.
Cons: No outlets to charge digital devices, and need more bathrooms on board. I was able to sleep most of the 11 hour flight so I did not take advantage of the entertainment.
Pros: Great on board service from a very professional crew.
Cons: Can't think of a thing.
Pros: The leg room, was surprisingly roomy
Cons: The food and that there was no entertainment.
Cons: infotainment was down. Lost my luggage the flight was delayed
Pros: Fast boarding
Cons: The entertainment system wasn’t working for the whole 10 hour flight.
Cons: The cabin crew was racist. She told me to move back from an empty seat just because she wanted one of the guys ( from her country ) to set on it! Very rude and racist.
Cons: The streaming service didn’t work
Pros: Good Experience
Cons: Nothing much
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.
Pros: Crew were friendly. Flight was comforyable smooth and on time. Nice snack.
Pros: The flight crew was nice. Plane departed/arrived on time.
Cons: I paid €60 extra to sit in the emergency door seat to get more leg room but once.i was in the plane learned for more leg room I accepted a smaller seat next to a bathroom and no entertainment. I could not store my belongings near me. No power outlet to charge my devices for my own entertainment on a 7 hour flight. Dealing with constant traffic for the bathroom. I sat in the middle seat between two hours other men. It was a constant struggle arm space. After 7hours in the air I could not wait to get off the plane. If I didn't actually pay an extra €60 for the seat I may not feel bad but I feel like I might have been better off without paying for the "upgrade"
Pros: Airlines issue
Cons: Profiling certain customers
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: Flight was delayed for three hours and was a very stressful flight
Cons: Flight was not on time and got to destination very very late pier management of aircrafts
Cons: Without any explanation the plane I was due to go to Istanbul on at 11.30 was not available. I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology. I then missed my next flight in Istanbul and had to purchase another ticket. I cannot believe that air passengers are treated in this way!!! I will follow this up with KLM when I go home from my holiday.
Pros: The flight was very good, specially considering it was a daylight one. Staff was friendly and servicial. Tue food was above the industry's average.
Pros: quick and relaxed
Cons: Per usual, KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Strange choice of in-flight movies; no accounting for taste, I guess.
Pros: That we didn't crash
Cons: Being delayed and missing my connecting flight. No entertainment onboard (for hours and hours).
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!
Cons: Terrible service in flight and customer service wise .. app functionality was below
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: It was a short flight so it was O.K.
Cons: Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger.
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: They flew full speed to catch up with the delays.
Cons: Departure was scheduled with one hour delay. When everyone was boarded they mentioned a leaking toilet. It took them 1,5 hours to disable the toilet. In the mean time, no drinks, no snacks, nothing. So we should depart at 18:00 but it became 19:30. Our first drinks and meal was no earlier then 21:00. The crew should have anticipated better that the technical problem would at least take one hour and give everyone a drink at least.
Pros: Timely, clean, friendly crew. Love this airline.
Pros: Great crew, they were very nice. Food was good enough, could use more variety but i never had good food on any flight.
Pros: It was good
Pros: Evry thing but the dilay
Cons: If we arrive on time
Pros: The crew doesn’t speak a word of English the chair is not comfortable no TV no space at all to walk or put suitcases
Cons: Flight cancelled without communication, zero customer service, awful experience, will never fly Aeroflot again
Pros: Service was excellent. For this long flight, we chose premium economy. It was very good and a lot more room then standard economy
Cons: Flight was canceled or moved. They told us there is a problem with the flight and moved us to another airline. I’ve been warned about Aeroflot and it turned out to be true. I’ll file a complaint, I deserve a refund.
Pros: check in was fast There is free food free luggage one piece a head Blankets pillows slippers
Cons: Food is getting worse than before, though it's not yet horrible Touch screens work very very slowly Only half of the chargers built into the chairs work. No leg room whatsoever
Cons: Felt like small chairs. Big guy set near me, we didnt have place for the hands.
Pros: Even though there was a significant delay there was recompense for Hotel or fare.
Cons: The entertainment shows should be on even after the landing.
Pros: Amazing flight and very relaxing
Pros: The boarding
Cons: The heat! It was crazy hot
Pros: Plenty of food/snacks available. Many movies to watch.
Cons: only one side of my headphones worked
Pros: Very good service on board
Cons: Too long trip in short space
Pros: I had a feeling the service and the plane were for VIP persons.
Cons: Nothing to complain of.
Pros: The crew were nice and welcoming. Had a lot of movies to watch
Cons: Nothing special, usual flight issues.
Cons: 1 hour late, sitting in the plane in tel aviv, with no explanation whatsoever. Then when arrived to Moscow after plane taxiing, STILL 1 hour INSIDE THE PLANE without letting the people out!!! I Missed my train and I will have to stay a night in moscow for nothing!! Horrible experience. I will never in my life fly aeroflot again.
Pros: Boarding was good. Plain looks well kept
Cons: Waiting for someone to take the plate took almost the all flight. Food was terrible
Cons: Unable to selesct seating.
Cons: screen not functioning should not serve meat or chicken with kosher meals this week through Tuesday, August 1. Period of mourning and kosher people don't eat meat or poultry during this period. Served fish on first leg from NY. That was good. sorry, this report is for return flight
Cons: Was late Food not good Screrns are so bad
Pros: השירות, הצוות, העמידה בזמנים-היה בסדר גמור!
Cons: המזוודה של מרים נשארה במוסקבה! כבר שלושה ימים היא מסתובבת ללא החפצים האישיים שלה-ללא הציוד, איפור, הלבשה אישית, פיז'מה, נעלי-בית ובגדים להחלפה. נכון שאמרו לה במשרדי איירפלוט שהיא יכולה לרכוש ציוד נחוץ וישלמו לה בהצגת קבלות, אבל עכשיו יש לה הוצאות לא מתוכננות והכסף הולך למינימום דברים שאי אפשר להסתדר בלעדיהם ושווים כסף, זמן ונוחות. המזוודה בינתיים איננה! איפה מזומן להוצאה הלא צפויה הזאת? איפה פיצוי על עגמת נפש? ומתי כבר תגיע המזוודה??!
Cons: Everything. The horrible customer service i had ever'
Pros: the service, the personnel, were good.
Cons: There was no entertainment on the plane. the food wasn't good.
Pros: The tv, flight attendants was very nice
Cons: The meal was still frozen
Pros: The plane was new and the flight attendances were very nice!
Cons: It was too hot on the plane
Pros: Everything was very good
Cons: I like everything. Services were perfect
Pros: Aeroflot is outstanding. Great experience and great service.
Pros: This was a cheap flight from LAX to ZRH with a layover in Moscow and that's about as good as it gets.
Cons: The check in personnel was not that helpful and were very slow to check in everyone to their corresponding flights, and since kiosks were not available for aeroflot the experience was unavoidable. The plane economy class is really as uncomfortable as it gets for a transatlantic flight. There were no beer options for the flight (nor vodka which is weird), and flight attendants weren't that happy to talk to you in English. 5 hours wait at Moscow are the worst, if you're thinking on saving some dollars on a transatlantic flight this is not worth it.
Pros: My initial flight from LAX to Moscow 10 days before the video entertainment system wasn't working for anyone, so we had to endure a 12 hour flight without movies or music. But this flight the system was working so I was happy for that. Food was fair.
Cons: Again the on boarding process was a mess. Gate number changed and everyone was once again cramming them selves into the line from all directions. Essentially there was no line. We also were at a gate where another flight ahead of us was still boarding (to London) so I think that made people more anxious and frustrated. When we finally passed through the gate and boarded a transport bus, the bus only took us a few feet away to the next gate, and they had us climb up a set of stairs up to the entry way from where our original gate number was located. Why even bother changing the gate then!
Pros: Cabin staff (Russian) tried very hard, had limited English, drinks available through our flight. In flight entertainment there were a lot of choices (13 1/2 hr flight). For LA to Spain it was the best price.
Cons: Announcements from flight deck in English very hard to impossible to understand. Most passengers are Russian. There are some differences in culture and etiquette that exist and you can either deal with them or you can't. Their norm is to be willing to stand in long lines. Personal space may be less than what we are accustomed to in US. The airline staff usually have some English but are not interested in having a discussion with you, just a couple of words. Food: passable, no more. Lady sitting next to me opened up a paper then plastic wrap, placed 2 smoked fish on a stack of napkins then proceeded to dismantle it with her fingers and eat it. It was smelly and disgusting. I commented to a flight attending that I found this impolite to inflict on other passengers - nothing was done - she didn't say a word to the passenger. I don't want to rule others but when I pay money, I don't feel that I should have no say. I might do it again but the cost difference would really have to make it worthwhile.
Pros: The leg room! And the meals were delicious
Cons: Boarding was slow and unorganized. At times VERY warm
Cons: There is no reason to wake my small sister, if I've asked not to do so.
Pros: Surprisingly large plane (777). Very comfortable and punctual. Will use again.
Cons: Small plane and no entertainment. Food is bland and meal options not changed for at least 3 months. For a frequent traveller that is bad.
Pros: price. service.
Pros: the food was good on this flight. the flight attendants were very nice.
Cons: The seats are made for children. I am only 5'0" and my knees hit the seat in front of me.
Pros: My seat was good.
Cons: The flight from TLV to Moscow - no TV, so no entertainment. The food was not so good. Also I had to go through boarding again although I did online.
Pros: Timinig, service
Pros: On time good service
Cons: The audio system was not working despite system restart
Pros: Relatively comfort seats, clean and tidy.
Cons: Food below average and small portions. Too many screaming children onboard.
Pros: Safe flight and very nice employees.
Cons: Tv didn't work, the restroom was disgusting, only offered drinks one time then disappeared.
Pros: I like the fact that Kayak is not only not hiding or witholding any fees and strings attached, but also goes a step further and saves the cutomer time by comparing to other travel sites just so that the customer feels he is getting the best possonle fare. Also it is worth mentioning that kyak is the only website i have found that has usefull search parameters in their filters, is seems like the competition is folwing Kayak's lead but is not quite there yet. I have found that Google Flights and others are not necessarily looking out for the best customer experience as you might often get stuck with a 20 hour layover without the customer noticing it.
Cons: The only thing i think is rather elementary that youcould improve is to make sure that when a flight departs at 12:00AM or later please make sure the system calles is the "following day of the week" for example: if a flight departs 12:00AAM or later on monday morning (even though it is technically sunday night) than that ticket offering should say: Departure, Monday (morning) at 12:00Am (or 12:01AM or 01:00AM as maybe the case).
Pros: Amazing flight attendants and service
Pros: flight was perfectly on time, everything smooth, easy and safe travel, thank you
Pros: The crew is nice
Cons: No respect of distancing the seats ; all the seats were occupied. No wifi
Cons: Short and sweet
Cons: Flight was delayed for 4+ hours
Pros: The seats were spacious and the crew was wonderful. The crew actually made the long flight more tolerable. Will seek out Delta/Air France for further international flights.
Cons: Flight was delayed
Pros: Quick boarding, comfortable seating. Great food!
Cons: The seats and IFE were a bit outdated. Comfortable, but outdated. My family had issues with their screens and one had to use the remote as the touch screen was no longer functional.
Cons: Crew on the ground was very rude
Cons: Entertainment worked sporadically
Pros: The whole crew is so kind
Cons: Delta made my whole first flying experience the best.
Pros: Average crew. Average seat.
Cons: They could have controlled screening babies better. They just let them scream.....
Pros: Food and drinks very good
Cons: In economy class the movies unable to listen to with ear buds. Bring my own next time.
Pros: Good food and crew
Cons: Plane was old and seats were super tiny. Even an average guy would be uncomfortable in it. Can’t sit in one spot for longer than 15 min without getting sore.
Pros: Crew was very nice. Food was good and tasty.
Cons: Plane seemed a little worn, which surprised me since it was an A380. Not that old. I had purchased an upgrade to a seat with more legroom, only to find out there was no USB plug for charging my phone. All standard seats have them. Would have been nice to be warned about that.
Pros: On time, staff was nice.
Cons: Not many options and not even a glass of champagne. That’s a minimal requirement. No sparkling water. Just very limited
Pros: I did like Flying with Delta and Air France but not with Ukrainian airlines (when booking , it should tell you what airlines will be used , to make a better selection )
Cons: When I purchased my flight ticket , I purchased with a checked bag (23 kg /50 #) how ever ( who will fly to Ukraine with a 10kg suitcase) I booked for a KLM flight , they used (partener airlines ) when I arrived to LA I flew with Delta , they checked my Suitcase at no cost all the way to my final destinations , that was expected ! When I was going to return , they made me payed 120 dollars ( in Kiev , Ukraine (UIA) , I was very disappointed and I really will love an explanation about all this !
Pros: Crew was nice although one fellow was a little too “nervous” and looked bossy
Cons: Food was awful. Asked for vegan meal they got it half right, as vegan is not vegetarian. And the second meal or snack as they say was not vegetarian or vegan at all.
Pros: Crew was nice movie selection was good.
Cons: Plane was late which caused a 5 hour layover in Paris CDG. Food not very good. Entertainment system clumsy to operate.
Pros: En deux mots, tout était médiocre, avion, « nourriture » (si on appeler ça comme ça) même les hôtesses travaillaient avec une sale gueule.. Très déçu d’Air France
Cons: Le capitain et l’aterrisage
Pros: The food, beverages and choices of movies, entertainment There was a medical emergency that caused the flight to land in Canada. This was handled very professionally - I hope the passenger ended up getting the care needed and is doing well.
Pros: Very nice stews. Food was A plus compared to US airlines AND included. Great list of movies etc.
Pros: Food and wine was very good. Music selection was excellent.
Cons: Not enough leg room.
Pros: It was on time
Cons: Hard seats Boarding was 35 min delayed
Pros: On time.
Cons: Did not seat together passengers, although booked and checked in at the same time.
Pros: From the boarding, to the friendly hostesses to the food and the business class seat, I was impressed all the way. My first time to fly Air France business to the US and it was great. I recommend it!
Cons: I just expected better toilet bag for business but what was given out was just basic.
Pros: We flew with our special needs child without requesting any particular accommodations except for gluten free meals. The gate staff and flight crew identified him and allowed us special bordering that facilitated the process. That act of kindness is a rare experience on our part. Thank you Air France staff!
Cons: It is very difficult to get around CDG airport with a disabled person. There is no shuttle. By the time we got to check in, we were ten minutes late. They would not check us in, and we paid over $700 to change tickets to the next flight. When I complained, I was told to stop being rude or I would get no ticket at all. My mother is 94 years old and we did the best we could given the circumstance.
Pros: The stewardesses were extremely kind and helpful to me as I was travelling alone with my toddler. I really appreciated their help and kindness.
Pros: Food and service was good and price was acceptable
Cons: Very long route
Cons: They were unfreindly and rude.
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.
Cons: Plane was canceled at the last minute with a transfer desk literally assaulted by 100s of people. Only 3 persons on the desk. No lane for sky priority. Queued for nearly two hours before some airport employee gave us instructions to travel by train without any other information or tickets etc. Had to buy my ticket. Couldn’t recuperate my suitcase. Had to wait for it the next day for three hours. Up to this hour I don’t know how I am going to be reimbursed (train and plane).
Cons: They loosed our reserved seats, our luggage, food was awful, ground staff was disrespectful.
Pros: In cabin crew was attentive and friendly. Food was good and came at good times. Middle bathroom on Airbus 380 was big and comfy.
Cons: Boarding was not too well organized and I followed Security's direction who put me in wrong line and I wasn't able to board with my priority group. Sitting in exit row with no floor storage so this delay made it hard to find overhead storage above my seat. (Grrrr) Entertainment system didn't work which made the flight feel LOOONG. (They offered an in-flight credit, but I'd paid for premium exit row seat and had to choose between moving to working system in crowded middle seat or keep premium, exit seat. I decided to have them move me to a seat with a working entertainment system, which were available and they'd offered, but never happened.) When I got home, I discovered the gift I purchased with in-flight credit and my own money wasn't the one I'd requested from Duty Free catalog so now I have to figure out how to solve this problem. (COULDN'T GET IT RIGHT.) Premium exit row seat was narrow, due to in-seat tray table & entertainment system, but seatbelt mounts and thinly padded seat made it even more uncomfortable on a long flight.
Pros: Everything was very prefect and would love to fly again.
Pros: Crew was welcoming
Cons: Space between the seats was too small.
Pros: Short, lots of leg space
Cons: Disappointed to get delayed due to control tower issues at CdG. Landed more than 30 mins late in London
Pros: No delays, service with a smile
Cons: Nothing to report.
Pros: Crew was friendly and polite, both beverages and an excellent lunch was offered.
Cons: A delay was not ideal but nothing to worry about since the flight arrived on time.
Pros: Cheap aircraft, not even headsets
Cons: Dirty aircraft, I expect more when I pay a lot
Pros: It was clean The crew was very kind Food was very good Flight was on time
Cons: Seats were exceedingly close Screens for entertainment were small and game controls were difficult to use
Cons: Too crowded
Cons: Meal choice missing kosher non-gluten combination.
Pros: movies were great, watched a lot of them food, while nothing to write home about, was at least tasty and not inedible the staff was great, friendly, welcoming, hard working loved that we could have wine and snacks
Cons: we had paid for the exit row and had a luxurious amount of room. But when we tried to sleep, our fellow passengers came and stood at our feet and talked so loudly that we could not possibly sleep. They stayed there for more than an hour. Would have loved for the staff to maybe ask them to tone it down, if not move.
Pros: Friendly crew; comfort; punctuation. Fast boarding
Cons: Simple food - very small amounts. No entertainment.
Pros: Not much
Cons: Ground service at check-in was very poor: Misinformation and failure to provide a level of service that other SkyMiles partners provide for Gold level traveler.
Pros: Boarding was fast and efficient. Flight attendant staff were friendly and very courteous.
Cons: Vegetarian food choices are too limited. Snack and beverage availability on long flights like this are too few and far between.
Pros: Same as above, the crew was very friendly and the food was great.
Cons: Seating was cramped and uncomfortable for a tall person.
Pros: Boarding was efficient, the flight was on schedule, crew was nice.
Cons: The temperature for this leg of the trip seemed very cold. I wore 2 sweaters & a jacket plus the blanket. Hard to rate entertainment (I wasn't aware of any).
Pros: Very clean plane, comfortable seating, crew great, food actually delicious!
Cons: Was overnight flight but food was served very late and lights were on for a while so people were getting drunk and loud with free alcohol served but no milk for toddlers available.
Cons: Hi, Pliz sort out the menu,the food was rubbish.
Pros: The flight was relatively on time and the crew was nice
Cons: The food was not the British Airways high quality
Pros: great crew great seats great entertainment great pilots great food and the greatest airline in the world
Cons: free wifi
Cons: Entertainment didn’t work, big delay broken seat
Cons: Delayed 24 hours due to a massive system failure on BA's part, we were stuck on an old 747 with tiny seats, a ridiculous seat pitch, mediocre food. At least it got us home.
Cons: Wifi was down all the way.
Pros: The flight was smooth and quick. Got to LA within 40 minutes.
Cons: They could've provided some snacks.
Pros: Great !
Cons: Kosher meal a bit hard to open
Pros: Nothing particularly
Cons: Food was awful
Pros: Nothing. Flight attendant throws the tray of food all over me. Never apologize Worst flight ever I'm a Gold Frequent Flyer. No more!!! Good Bye British Airways Hello Cathay Pacific!
Pros: The air hostesses were first class. Pleasant, efficient and professional.
Cons: The tv selections. Could have had more variety
Pros: The Heathrow terminal, Amazing. Why does everyone in window seats keep all the window shades closed -- throughout the entire flight? It was daylight and beautiful outside. Are they all vampires? Why did my overhead light shine on the seat next to mine? Never mind... the flight was fine. Nothing to shout about, except for what I wrote in the next "What I didn't like" box....
Cons: I was assigned a window seat. I asked an agent if I could get an isle seat because I am a little claustrophobic. She said yes, and gave me 24D. Great, but I was annoyed and upset that she did not warn me that it was a front seat, with now place to put my personal bag. The wife of the guy next to me was 10 seats away, so I found an isle seat at the back of the aircraft and moved, so she could be with her husband. It all worked out okay, but the agent should have been more informative and have offered the option of that rear seat. It's not nice to be sneaky.
Cons: flight was delayed and we never got any information by the pilots or crew to let us know that we were delayed and no information on the new arrival time. Almost lost my connection at LAX
Cons: 3 canceled flights and lost luggage.... bad communication by employers and absolutely no help ... we were sent all over the airport several times to the wrong places and felt that no body cared in this process .... I would like compensation and something to make this right ... we also lost our upgraded seats I lpaid for and the vegan meals we ordered in advance
Pros: Entertainment was adequate.
Cons: The plane was freezing for 11 hours. Flight attendant said it would be adjusted but it never was. We were against a wall and seats did not recline. Very little room.
Pros: The A-380 is outstanding. Seats are good, even in economy. Entertainment system is great.
Cons: It seems to me that boarding by Groups has not helped in the least bit, instead it has made things slower. It's bad enough that the charges and limitations on luggage have forced everyone to try to board with their suitcases... The group system just makes things worse. I recommend BA compares itself to Lufthansa, Swiss, Qatar, Thai, whatever, and avoid trying to match Easyjet and American Airlines on service levels. Oh, and there is no excuse for long delays and cancellations in the most important airport in Europe. At least not for a simple dusting of snow.
Pros: Flight left almost on time and arrived on time. Crew was friendly.
Cons: Wasn't able to select a seat ahead of time like with other airlines. Seat rows way too tight (even for a normal 130 lb person like me). No good movie options, very limited selection. Food pretty bad, but that's almost expected this day and age.
Cons: FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED IN THE LAST MINUTE, I WAS STRANDED IN LONDON AND HAD NO COMPENSATION
Cons: the flight delayed a lot and i missed my connection flight as a result
Pros: Modern individual entertainment stations. Comfortable leather (or perhaps synthetic leather) seats. Friendly helpful crew.
Cons: I was seated between 2 people, and it felt like very little space.
Cons: The airplane was shaking all the flight
Pros: Very little.
Cons: Awful (typically BA) configuration im Club World on a 787 - cramped, inadequate storage, just lacking essential comfort for a supposed premium class. Food: seriously, I've had better in student cafes. Just stop it BA - its like some kind of prison food. Entertainment: meh. Small selection of new release movies. Crew: with the exception of one - just one from a complement of 15 odd - of the crew, the rest were a surly, inhospitable miserable bunch. If you hate your job don't take it out on customers - especially in a service industry.
Pros: Great crew!
Cons: Late catering delayed flight. Fix ground services.
Pros: The flight was smooth from boarding to landing early at Heathrow.
Cons: It was a fully booked flight, which means the person next to you tends to overflow into your seat
Pros: The staff are good and attentive
Cons: Just the delay and long flight but that's something that BA has no control
Cons: A couple of mishaps by the crew with no acknowledgement. One of the flight attendants dropped an empty soda can on the floor which was dropped on my toes (I had taken my shoes off) and picked it up with no acknowledgement or apology, even after I screamed out of pain. I was speechless that I didn't even object. In another incident, when asked for food option, I chose chicken vs pasta. When opened my hot plate after 2-3 minutes, I found out I had tofu in front of me. I called the flight attendant and they came over, acknowledged I had the wrong food just to inform me they were out of chicken at that point. If you make a mistake, please offer something in return to make the experience somewhat better.
Cons: I paid 100$ because I had to cancel my request. It was a technical error of your reservation system which unexpectedly changed my return from the 5th of November to the 6th of November. The fine was unfair and you're required to refund me.
Cons: I added a quick trip to Austria while I was in Europe and timed it so I would fly back to London and then back to LA on the same day. London had a huge wind storm on 10/21 so my flight from Austria landed 1 hour late, with that I missed my London-LAX flight on BA (that I purchased via Kayak). The BA agents tried to help me but were not able to use my Kayak ticket to re-book me or at least recover some of my investment. There was no phone number provided on my reservation and after an hour of trying to help me, they said I have to buy a brand new ticket. The cost for my return and my seat reservation both were lost and my new ticket was $1,600 (and I had to spend the night in a hotel at Heathrow as at that point all US flights left for the day). I usually book directly with the airlines because I want to avoid situations like this, so it is too bad that the one time I come to Kayak I end up having to buy a new ticket that was twice as expensive as the original one.

Pros: The crew and entertainment was great on this flight! Other than that, it is kind of hard to find positives.
Cons: We were delayed by 30 minutes for whatever reason and then we were trapped in the air for 11 hours in tiny seats. The seat wasn't very comfortable and I didn't have much room to sit and for my legs. I had a stupid box under the seat in front of me with airplane stuff in it I guess, so that took up some room under the seat in front of me. I had my legs stretched in the aisle most of the flight. The food wasn't great, but what airline food is good? I was really expecting this aircraft to be like the Dream Liner, but overall it was just a big tin can in the sky.
Pros: Flight attendants are so friendly, cheerful, personable and polite
Cons: BA website required payment for any seat selection, so I paid $35 for two aisle seats to be close to my husband. Then, BA website did not allow change or upgrade of seating when I at last discovered upper deck availability and paid another $50 each for us to sit together.. I purchased seating months in advance, and so did friends travelling with me, but my husband's seat was given free to a man who said had just purchased 2 days prior. I purchased my one friend an exit row seat in main cabin for $75 but BA gave it to someone else. Yes, I want refunds and will be writing more about this to BA and posting about this horrid discomfort.
Cons: Staff where very rude. I asked if me and my partner could move as the person in front had there seat back therefore my knees got damaged and grazed they simply said we can't move you and left I asked a number of times I was ignored
Pros: This was a great flight, seats were spacious and comfortable, food was hot and tasty. Entertainment also good - variety and quality.
Cons: Not quite enough drinks given out for an 11 hour flight but otherwise great.
Pros: The crew was friendly and helpful. The entertainment options were good and the food was fine.
Cons: The seats reclined too far, so if the person in front of you put their seat back, it practically hit you in the face. It made it uncomfortable.
Pros: Staff was exceptional.
Cons: First a large number of the flight was flagged for special screening which meant that they had to do additional procedures and were very understaffed as many of us talking near 100 people had to stay behind and wait for over an hour as three employees screened us in detail. This while the rest of the plane was already boarded. Thus the flight left late and arrived very late to LAX. Secondly the refrigeration on board for food was broken thus spoilong the food so we only received one meal on an 11 hour flight which we were starving and not what we paid for during this flight. They did offer snacks but when not having a full meal as paid for it is a huge let down. Thirdly why is Wi-Fi not offered on this flight. Due to the late departure and late arrival we missed my connection to TUS and was not able to make calls or email during the flight. Not acceptable. Very unhappy and will never be flying with British Airways again. I WILL ALSO NEVER LET FRIENDS AND FAMILY FLY WITH THEM. An airline as prestigious as BA needs to work better at ensuring the minimum on offering wait we the customer pays for and this did not happen. Staff was amazing and very friendly but we were very dejected and felt that your brand suffered a lot with this experience. I do hope to hear from airline about this incident as my wife and I travel constantly.
Cons: The crew was rude and almost didn't seem like they wanted to be there especially this one person called Byron.
Pros: Landed ahead of schedule
Cons: Baggage did not arrive as was not put on flight at San Jose despite checking it in 2.5 hours before flight
Pros: The food was good and the flight attendants were attentive, especially considering the number of passengers. Overall, British Airways does a much better job than most American airlines.
Cons: As with most airlines, the seats were cramped, especially when the person in front of me reclined their seat.
Pros: Again, I liked that the staff was very kind, accommodating and professional
Cons: I did not like a family that delayed us by 10 minutes because they did not wanted to comply with policy regarding a cello they were carrying. It was very annoying and they did not apologize to the staff.
Pros: Decent leg room, crew and entertainment.
Cons: Upon landing late in London from Rome there was no one to bring the walkway to the plane so had to wait on the plane when we were already behind schedule on a tight connection. THEN having to go through second security check in London when changing planes and security in terminal C was closed so had to transfer to terminal B for security and back to C to catch flight barely making it! Luggage did not make connection. Promised it will be delivered today.
Pros: Flight crew is the most helpful and genuine I've experienced of all carriers. I've had bad experiences with Lufthansa, United, American, and Delta. Everything we asked of BA was taken care of quickly and they truly seemed to care more. They are especially attentive to children. The A320 storage space overhead is huge and seemed to have room to spare with a fully booked flight.
Cons: Seats are so uncomfortable for people 6 foot tall and above. Why can't they make a seat that adjusts for taller people.
Pros: Connection desk and gate attendance were the only people who tried to help fix the mistakes made by the people in madrid. Global access allowed to quicken our time spent going home after the mets that was our flight home.
Cons: the attendant at the connection desk did not understand why we had not been given boarding passes or allowed to check in to our flights in madrid. the gate attendants did not understand that even though we were numbers 72 and 73 person processed we were not allowed to check in, receive boarding passes or allowed to sit next to my sister who's reservation was connected to mine
Pros: Long flight but free personal entertainment screens and free food breakfast, lunch dinner and snack. Free wine with the dinner
Pros: flight was on time. Checking in was easy, and well directed. As for entertainment, plenty of new release movies to view.
Cons: The seats are uncomfortable, due to a metal box under the seats . You have to sit with legs in an angle, instead of straight; After 9 hours, it's very uncomfortable.
Cons: Paid extra for seat- seriously? why??? No one else did and there was no extra leg room~ Make it fair for everyone!
Pros: Across to entertainment helped pass the time
Cons: On an 11 + hour flight it's extremely difficult if not impossible to get any sleep when you can barely move your seat back. Try removing some seats ...yes, I know impossible
Pros: Boarding was quick and staff was friendly. On board the service was great. All flight attendants were smiling, friendly and kept coming through the economy cabin with orange juice and water to make sure we were all well hydrated. We received lunch, movie snacks, and a mini pizza lunch. The only meal that wasn't great was the mini pizza.
Cons: The only minor issue we had on this flight was that our entertainment units stopped playing movies 4 hours before we landed. The cabin crew tried resetting it a few times and tried everything they could to fix it, but it didn't work. They did compensate us for the inconvenience so that was nice.
