Pros: "Crew was not this great on my Flight from Doha to IAD. My pre ordered food was not given on time and they missed it. I was given cold food. The flight attendant ignored to offer Drinks and they didn't give the Custom Forms too. I have to ask everything and THE overall service was awful"
Cons: "Flight attendants should care the passengers and provide the best service. Otherwise there is no use paying expensive flight tickets and travelling on Qatar"
Pros: "Crew and flight time"
Cons: "Entertaiment - pleasee TV"
Pros: "nice crew, great service"
Cons: "Doha to Washington plane was an old plane where entertainment system did not function properly, seats did not recline etc. Emirates A380 is a lot more comfortable plane."
Pros: "Legroom was great Staff were great Bathrooms were very clean and cleaned often in the flight"
Pros: "Flight was 80% empty, but it was amazing anyway, slept through most of it"
Cons: "Staff constantly woke me up for snacks and drinks, which is good on one hand but I was sleeping so deep that it was a bit annoying."
Pros: "Great crew and food served was nice for airline food."
Cons: "You need to bring a snack with you. This is a 16 hour flight and there is a long time between their food services. 2 meals and one snach"
Pros: "qatar airways"
Cons: "serving alcohol to passengers more than once is disturbing the passengers on the side"
Pros: "The business class service is second to none. Very courteous staff, superb on demand menu with ausome selections."
Cons: "Cleanliness of cabin. Aminity kit is outrageous."
Pros: "Good crew, fair choice of food and drinks and served whenever you want it. Good array of entertainment on offer but our flight was a 'sleeper' so after a fumble with the controls and the limited new releases, I opted to read instead. Not sure we like the Dreamliner configuration and levels of comfort more than the 777 or Airbus offerings but it was fine."
Cons: "A couple on our flight decided it was OK to have their 4-year old run around the cabin shrieking and causing a lot of fuss. Most of us in the cabin complained but these parents were pathetically weak and elected to allow it to continue. No sleep... spoiled experience.. miserable flight in this respect. Terrible Business Lounge 'Aspire' in Gatwick; dirty and poorly equipped - not even Prosecco on offer without paying £5 for a small glass. Qatar should stop using this dreadful place. Crew seemed to have stopped referring to the passengers by name and offer a less-personalised service in Business than we have become accustomed to. The food choices while good, have been paired back as have the selection of wines."
Pros: "Qatar flight is no problem"
Pros: "business cabin nearly empty. comfortable seats"
Cons: "Expensive WiFi"
Pros: "The on flight entertainment is great. It’s very accommodating especially for long flights."
Cons: "Onboarding was ridiculous. They merged two gates together with no instructions to the large crowd of people boarding the plane. We were scheduled to start boarding at a certain time and we didn’t actually board until 45 minutes later. When we asked the attendants when we would begin boarding and did they have any instructions they were extremely rude, laughing with one another and taking selfies. When we we asked for the third time they brushed us off with a time frame. It was extremely disappointing."
Pros: "price, comfort, food"
Pros: "The flight attendants were professional and polite, I requested low-fat meals and they were good, the entertainment was very good, the air temperature was comfortable, most flights I had were on time."
Cons: "The legroom was a problem. Seats are kind of narrow, and then, with the lack of legroom it’s somewhat challenging to shift your legs, especially when the seat in front of you goes back! I felt like the person was almost in my lap. My cup even got crunched. I think my biggest issue, though, lay in how I was treated after paying $127.00 to obtain a day pass for the lounge each way. For my inbound flight my purse was branded with an “economy” class luggage type tag, and I was made to feel as though I was trying to sneak in. I had to show my boarding pass a number of times to employees after asking for the location of the lounge in order to be directed there, and then my credentials were examined as though I was trying to get into Fort Knox. Upon arrival at the desk, I was somewhat tersely informed that I had 6 hours. I went out of my way a bit in order to fly Qatar, which is supposed to be so wonderful, and I was underwhelmed. I’ve had better experiences on Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines."
Pros: "Access to entertainments"
Cons: "CRYING BABY BUT I UNDERSTAND THOUGH"
Pros: "All good"
Pros: "Quick boarding, good entertainment choices."
Cons: "Food is below average. Very salty tofu salad, and they keep giving the same food in every leg."
Pros: "Excellent service from the crew. Flight on time."
Pros: "The lack of passengers on this flight gave me an amazing amount of room. Really makes the flights enjoyable when I can spread out."
Cons: "The food could use some work. The quantities are perfect. But the quality is definitely lacking"
Pros: "Everything from courtesy, to very good food, and a clean flight."
Pros: "Food is really good and you guys also have options for vegetarian people as well."
Pros: "Again, the crew were top notch"

Cons: "Nothing to mention"

Pros: "Crew Service"
Cons: "If a customer has not ordered Vegeterian / Special meal earlier, the crew doesn't carry any extra meal."
Pros: "Over all the flight was great."
Cons: "However I feel the need to share that the lid of one of the lights fell off and hit my girlfriend on her nose while she was asleep hurting her instantly. I understand that it was an accident, but nobody takes responsibility for it."
Pros: "Lo mejor de estos vuelos es sin dudad el servicio del personal de vuelo, son muy amables y se esmeran en mantener cómodo a todo el mundo, te dan botellitas de agua, jugo, hielo, lo que pidas."
Pros: "The Chicago flight was more than hour late so had to miss my cincinnati connection. Had to wait for 4 hours at the airport to catch my next flight- making the long journey even longer. No priority lounge access provided to make up for the delay. Qatar never getting my business again."
Pros: "1. Comfortable. 2. Good crew 3. On time 4. No hiccups."
Cons: "1. Not having wi-fi (major) 2. No news channels in in-flight entertainment 3. No snacks"
Pros: "The service on this flight was not very good. We almost missed our flight whilst waiting for a wheelchair for mother. She had to finally walk to the boarding gate because the wheelchair we had requested did not come."
Pros: "Good boarding. They do their best to make sure their passengers will be able to board the aircraft smoothly. Crew members are quite attentive and helpful."
Cons: "When making a review, I make comparisons with other airlines. I was expecting that Qatar Airways would be better than Emirates. It is my first time to fly Qatar airways, just to see if it's worth flying with this airline since it was the Best Airline in the world for 2015. But Emirates improved so much better that they overtaken the throne of Qatar Airways.. When you promise 5-star comfort and luxury, it should be what is promised.. Key points: 1.) Beverages should be served more than just twice during this 9 hour flight. It's a bit sarcastic that you flash a reminder on the screen that says "Keep Hydrated" but beverages were served only twice. I always had to ask for 2 glasses of water, overall 4 glasses of water on this 9 hour flight. And I can say that I got dehydrated. 2.) No hot towels for sanitary before food is served. I had to go to lavatory, wash my hands and put some alcohol before eating. Which is kinda hassle.. Sanitary is very important. 3.) I spent 8 hours layover in Doha before my flight to Milan. No complimentary meal. (Emirates provide complimentary meal if I have long layover in Dubai) 4.) I don't know if it's due to bad weather, but this flight, QR 933 was the roughest flight I have been on, not just short turbulence but long hours, maybe 3 hours. I was so dizzy and couldn't sleep. I signed up on privileged member club because I'm looking forward that Qatar would be the best choice for Airline. This review is just one of many reviews that should be looked at. Considering that you should continuously develop and aim to bounce back on the top. Do not settle for "okay", do not settle for second spot. Be the best, and compete for the first. Thank you for a safe flight. I'm looking forward for another flight with you. -Jerson Belir, first time flyer"
Cons: "Without internet"
Pros: "I like each part of service"
Pros: "The plane was clean, the staff was very friendly and attentive, the price was right, the seats were comfortable, and they had a good selection of movies /entertainment. We would use Qatar again"
Pros: "This is the way to fly long haul."
Cons: "Frustration is it is impossible to sleep during the breakfast service, but this is a problem for all airlines and Virgin is better than most."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The screen"
Pros: "The staff were helpful. The entertainment had good variety. Adjustable head rest was useful."
Cons: "The seat was a little lumpy. More leg room would always be appreciated."
Cons: "Very cramped aisle seat and I kept being knocked by passing crewe including knocking over a cup of water."
Pros: "Speedy boarding and good locker space"
Cons: "Lack of room in seat especially with seat in front reclined."
Pros: "Craig in first cabin flight crew was amazing. :))))"
Pros: "Comfy, nice crew, attentive."
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."
Pros: "I had one of the few empty seats next to me."
Cons: "The food is awful. Not enough toilets."
Cons: "My bag was damaged in transit"
Pros: "Provides the service you'd expect from an international carrier. Boarded on time, seat actually reclines, meals, baggage, seat assignments are included in the price. Staff treat you well and the price isn't bad."
Cons: "Virgin website is slow and not intuitive. Couldn't get seat assignment until i was at the gate. No explanation why. Boarding announcements delivered via ESP. Half of the passengers were still in the boarding area because no one heard announcements. Arrived 30 min early but had to wait on the tarmac for 45 min for a parking gate. Baggage delivery at JFK took forever."
Pros: "Everything except the food"
Cons: "The food is atrocious. Even if I have to pay to upgrade my meal, I would..."
Cons: "Missed connection to SFO"
Cons: "Queue at boarding gate for upper class ticket holders Bus transfer to plane - Virgin is not a LoCo airline! Upper Class Service was slow - understaffed?"
Cons: "Why do I have to get a new boarding pass in London"
Pros: "We paid extra for exit row seats so we had good leg space"
Cons: "The seats are so small that only your backside fits on it and we are not big people. There is no support for the thigh and I had severe cramps after leaving the aircraft. The flight to LA with Virgin Australia was far more comfortable."
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent!"
Cons: "I paid extra for Economy Delight seats for me and my wife. Shortly after take-off, our calm and comfortable more or less empty section of the aircraft was colonised by an extended family of Orthodox Jews in a kind of airborne West Bank situation. They weren’t in our section of the cabin at all to start with, and I don’t know why they were apparently able to get a free upgrade that I had to pay £100 for. We went from being in an almost empty cabin to being basically sat in the middle of an Orthodox Jewish kindergarten. It was awful! They were noisy, messy, were constantly getting in and out of their seats, the back of my seat kept getting kicked, and there was even a baby crawling around the aisle. We were surrounded. I have no idea whether this is characteristic of Orthodox Jewish family life, or just a completely inconsiderate family. They didn’t exactly ruin my flight, but they didn’t make it enjoyable either. I asked to be moved. The cabin crew were great and acknowledged the difficulty of the situation. My wife lost her window seat but at least we still had the legroom and peace and quiet."
Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Seats and legroom poor if you’re six feet tall"
Pros: "Staff were excellent and very friendly, service was great, and the entertainment on board was very good."
Cons: "We were waiting in our seats for about an hour before take off due to a need to de-ice the plane due to snowy weather. I think everyone would have been more comfortable in the waiting area while this happened, or at least given the option to do so."
Cons: "I had to run for almost 2 miles every time I had to change the flight. On the way to India they lost my one bag, and on the way back to US they lost my both begs."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, excellent food and drinks. Very happy with the service we received"
Pros: "Checking in at the counter even I wasn't allocated a seat but the gentleman was very humble and polite."
Cons: "The fact that I was told I would be given a seat at the boarding gate. I got to the airport very early to get a good seat only to be that and was given a very uncomfortable seat where I couldn't stretch my legs well because of a box on the floor situated to my left leg and to make the matter even more annoying my screen was not working which I was forced to take one heavy meant-so-called laptop. And finally cabin crew were lacking serious customer service and when u ask for something they were just so reluctant to deliver as if we were given a free ticket or something. May it be noted that my ticket was not that cheap to be treated in such manner."
Pros: "Cool flight, mainly because it was empty. Good food"
Cons: "Seats weren't that comfortable. Entertainment sucked because the screen functions were terrible, very difficult"
Cons: "Too much food - not enough time to sleep in comfort!"
Pros: "Quite a big choice of movies and TV shows to watch, more than enough for an eight hour flight. Normal headphone plugs so you can use your own."
Cons: "I booked together with my wife, yet we were allocated seats apart and were not able to be reassigned together. The leg room was so tight that I could not pick up things off the floor without putting my head in the next persons lap. Though the cabin crew were smiley and friendly, it was hard to get their attention when needed. The PA system is much louder than the entertainment, so announcements were ear bursting. The dinner selections ran out early, so a good proportion did not get their choice."
Cons: "Food was terrible"
Pros: "We really enjoyed flying with Virgin and so made sure we booked into a Virgin flight for this trip and not delta. The food was good, entertainment good when it worked."
Cons: "We got told that our flight number had changed from VS103 to VS4049 but still a Virgin flight. Only when we checked in we found out we were now flying with Delta and number was now DL285. Was not happy as wanted to fly with Virgin.The seats were ok but the entertainment system went down mid film. Took an hour to get started again. The games didn't work. Staff were a bit grumpy."
Cons: "We were told over the phone that we could bring our kayaks with us to Africa but the airport staff denied not only our kayaks, but also our paddles which were in a standard ski bag. Their excuse was that both the kayaks and paddle bags were 2 inches too long. .. TWO INCHES!!!!!! We had record of the person we talked to and the time and date, but none of that seemed to matter. It caused A HUGE INCONVENIENCE for us since we are in Zambia for 6 weeks without our gear to paddle one of the most challenging rivers in the world... the Zambezi. Now we are constantly trying to acquire the proper equipment with very little success. We run a nonprofit called the Montana Kayak Academy which provides free whitewater instruction to youth between 8 &18 yrs old and we will be sure to tell everyone we know to NOT TRAVEL WITH EITHER VIRGIN ATLANTIC OR BRITISH AIRWAYS.... EVER!!! VERY DISAPPOINTED! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Cabin crew were friendly and attentive. Flight was on time and we got to Atlanta early"
Cons: "Could do with more legroom. Food not the greatest"
Pros: "I had a great experience from start to end of my trip. Most of the staff were pleasant and professional. Food wasn't okay and red wine on flight from Heathrow was delicious."
Cons: "The red wine on the flight from Lagos was too sharp. That is the regular one served on virgin flight so was glad when I tasted the new one served on the flight from Heathrow, thinking it's been changed!"
Pros: "Fast check in Fast security line Upper Class Clubhouse Fast boarding Excellent onboard service Great crew"
Cons: "Old entertainment system Although the seats can be turned into a bed they don't fully recline"
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: "Everything went very fast and smooth. I didn't have to queue for the boarding. The Sita were very comfortable, the crew very friendly and halepful and the selection of the movies A+."
Cons: "My headphones and those of my neighbors did not work."
Pros: "1st class, what's not to like?"
Pros: "Food was great, plenty of it also"
Cons: "I'm 6'4" and there was no acknowledgement by the crew that I was squashed into a tight seat."
Pros: "comfort, entertainment, food"
Pros: "There are lots of relatively new movies to choose from."
Cons: "The complimentary headset breaks easily. Tray table was broken and they can't fix it. Very small bathrooms, knees almost touch the door when sitting down. Food selection for dinner ran out quickly, resulting in only 2 choices and one is hot spicy, so basically only one choice. All beverages are given out in small cups, even water is given out in small cups increments (finish in one gulp), they don't even give out small bottles of water. No complimentary packet (eye shades, socks etc.) , not even a barf bag for collecting trash."
Pros: "100% best flight ever"
Cons: "this is not an airline, this is a bus company"
Pros: "Virgin Atlantic had a very attractive decor.Food was great& staff as well. Polite and professional ."
Cons: "The seat I had was a bit snug leg wise and recline wise. Could not get comfortable at all."
Cons: "I did not get the requested meal. I had requested Asian Veg meal. I had reconfirmed that Virgin Atlantic Kiosk at Heathrow airport as well. In flight when I asked cabin crew they said they didn't get any request. I was hungry whole flight. Very bad experience."
Cons: "cabin was nice but cold"
Pros: "The plane was very nice with great lighting. More food would have been nice as it was a long flight The crew were variable - most very helpful but one or two not so much"
Cons: "Not enough food for everyone and no snacks between meals, which was very bad considering it was a 10 hour flight Entertainment was great, seats were OK (certainly had worse)"
Pros: "As expected, great customer service from Virgin. Great Vera system. Friendly and welcoming experience."
Cons: "The seats!!!! Omg I got bed sores. Not really but they have got to be the most uncomfortable things I have ever sat in. For a European flight from Uk they'd be fine. But for 9 hours...not good. The short hop down from ATL to MCO after was a blessed relief. Virgin, you have got to think a little more about your passengers asses. Also, having flown with just about every major transatlantic operator, including previous trips with Virgin, the knee room was not good. If you stretched out under the seat in front you were ok but draw your knees up... I wore short trousers for comfort and have sore points on my knees where they rubbed against the material of the chair in front."
Cons: "Cold draft at all times."
Pros: "Flight was on time .. Friendly crew. Good entertainment system"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable and leg room very tight . Didn't sleep well."
Pros: "Everything except the seating - far too cramped now"
Cons: "Seating! Seats getting ridiculously tight"
Pros: "Sitting in the exit row"

Pros: "Good! No complaints, no suggestions."
Pros: "Very professional."
Pros: "Nice helpful crew, plane was clean, arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Nothing much"
Pros: "Korean air is a step above the rest. Best airline in the business"
Cons: "No WiFi on the flight, but there is so much media offered you really forget"
Pros: "Crew very helpful and accommodating."
Cons: "The flight was delayed almost an hour due to inclement weather in the originating city. The Delta personnel explained the situation and did all they could considering the circumstances."
Cons: "They ran out of food by the time they got to the back of the plane."
Pros: "The crew on both legs of our trip were nice and accommodating."
Pros: "Thanks for the monitors."
Cons: "The crew seems tired."
Cons: "Filthy plane, and delayed too long"
Pros: "comfort plus really makes a difference"
Cons: "include at least 1 checked back with comfort plus or some kind of discount."
Pros: "Amazing Crew and had a real airplane to ilm for a change!"
Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "There were not head flaps on the seat. The person seated next to me overflowed into my seat making it uncomfortably warm even with the air vent fully open. Was in & out of sleep during a red eye flight."
Pros: "On time departure. Amazing entertainment selection. Awesome flight attendants. We had a very pleasant and easy experience. Love Delta!"
Pros: "Boarding was easy."
Cons: "I am 6' 1" tall and weigh 220, so not out of the ordinary and I felt like I was stuffed into a sardine can."
Pros: "Didn’t like security. They were rude"
Pros: "Flight was very late- about 45 minutes because of some problem with the "paperwork" they said. It was a beautiful day and the crew was ready to go, but we all sat for a long time before being allowed to leave Madison. It's especially bad when we've all made ourselves arrive at 5am for a 6am flight"
Cons: "on time departure"
Cons: "There was a dog barking the entire time that disturbed everyone."
Pros: "See Below.. Inflight WiFi Entertainment Options"
Cons: "Flight was delayed hour due to missing crew. Boarding involved a bus taking to stairs-only-access tiny plane, in pouring down rain. Grumpy flight attendant. All Carryons taken. Ran out of snacks and beverage service."
Pros: "Free Tillamook snacks that were filling, upgraded snacks"
Cons: "Most of the crew. They were literally no smiles except one nice lady. Just blank stares and quick handing off, not expecting a smile, but most of the crew was cold for idk what reason (except one nice lady)"
Pros: "Entertainment on board"
Cons: "No service, very hard landing - many screams"
Pros: "The landing!"
Pros: "Chairs was comfortable"
Cons: "I had a kid kicking my chair the whole flight."
Pros: "All was good."
Cons: "Screen went out after an announcement. I told the attendant but lost the screen for the rest of the flight. Slow to load and unload."
Pros: "Every Delta employee that we encountered was professional and pleasant"
Pros: "Entertainment on the flight was fantastic."
Cons: "Delta really struggles with trying to get everyone in the plane in an orderly fashion. Window seats must climb over all of the aisle passengers that got on before."
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly. No issues. Short flight. I was comfortable. The Biscoff and Ginger Ale was fine as always."
Cons: "No entertainment in the cheap seats. Free WiFi but I couldn’t connect to anything. But I had my Kindle..."
Cons: "Plane was Boarded and we sat for over an hour waiting on fuel. Minimizing the wait time on the plane should be considered prior to boarding. The practice of getting us on the plane to make us wait shhould be stopped. It will creat a much more relaxed and smooth delay if we are allowed to be in the terminal."
Pros: "Weather kept them from being able to serve everyone but she did pass around cookies which was a really nice thought!"
Cons: "Horribly uncomfortable on plane! Need more room!"
Cons: "Seeing as I’m still waiting for my flight, more than five hours later I am not inclined to rank it highly. This airport is an embarrassment and I will try my best to never fly Delta again. Weather is no excuse for this."
Pros: "Crew very cheerful and friendly"
Cons: "Still don’t know why I’m always zone 3. Also, need to stop people in main cabin from putting seats back. Either everyone would need to be like dominoes or basically they are just getting rid of what little space there is."
Pros: "The most humorous and professional flight attendants that I can remember on any flight. The ladies were friendly and efficient, but th male attendants were the same, but quite humorous! And at ten o'clock at night, after a long day, that made the flight relaxing and "fun.""
Cons: "Nothing, great ride!"
Cons: "Several things. Dropping off luggage. Security. Late flight departure."
Cons: "I was not able to use this flight from Dallas because of the Hurricane Irma's impending closure of Sarasota. So I had to purchase a one way, First Class ticket from Dallas to Tampa so that I could get home before the hurricane hit. However, the flight from Dallas to Tampa via Atlanta was excellent in all the above. Now, I have to figure out how to get credit for the unused portion of the DFW-ATL-SRQ! Any suggestions? FR. JOE CONNOLLY"
Pros: "Staffing was great!"
Cons: "The fact is that it is illegal to pack Sardines at compact as you are packing us on your aluminum cans."

Cons: "Everything was first class and there was nothing that was actually decided that was not received."
Pros: "On Time"
Pros: "When we landed and I was able to get off the plane"
Cons: "The guy in front of me reclining his sea before take off and the crew not correcting him so I had to which I did. He told the crew "he had the right" Crew refused to correct him because he was on a buddy pass so the rules didn't apply to him."
Pros: "Had to go through an extra random security check before boarding along with several other passengers. Looong flight, but expected when traveling that distance. Slept and watched movies. Best part: the pilot pointed out that Greenland was visible outside our windows as we flew over."
Cons: "Nothing. It was a smooth flight. Very comfortable."
Pros: "Staff were great.. landed smoothly"
Pros: "I missed my flight for the first time and I was having a complete meltdown at the check in desk until the sweetest agent said "oh no worries sweetheart, let's find you another flight back home"... It seems so simple but with the morning I had, this simple act had me in tears! The kindness and patience she showed me was amazing and definitely the reason I will always fly Delta to any and every destination they are able to take me! <3"
Pros: "Cabin crew was wonderful. The food was exceptional."
Cons: "The infotainment system was a little spotty."
Cons: "Didn't stick to zones when boarding customers. Gate agent basically let anyone board during pre boarding and priority boarding, why even offer it if you aren't going to make people adhere to the rules."
Pros: "Clean, pretty roomy (Delta Comfort)"
Cons: "Couldn't get onto internet. Both my wife and I could not access internet. Might be platform thing as we have Apple devices; woman next to us seemed to have nomorobkem with PC."
Pros: "We flew first class for the first time. Now I don't think I'll fly any other way!"
Pros: "the majority of delta flights i've taken over the past few years have had huge issues - either long delays or cancellations. i won't be flying Delta again"
Pros: "Salimos a tiempo . El business es muy confortable"
Cons: "La comida horrible . No se limpian los baños"
Pros: "Pumpkin soup instead of a heavy entree was welcome and tasty. Breakfast yogurt portion was generous, the granola less so. Accompaniments were good. Butter was not ice cold, thank goodness."
Cons: "Inbelievably chaotic boarding process for Kili to Dar leg. No boarding lanes so had to fight through the crowd. Was able to observe cleaning process at Dar stop, which was cursory and am sure there was no cleaning of seats of those who boarded at Kili."
Pros: "The crew was professional & friendly"
Cons: "Food was terrible honestly, entertainment system didn't work on 1st flight."

Pros: "The space at my feet with the chair in front was a bit akward."
Cons: "Not being seated next to small kids. Perhaps they should have a separate section? ;-)"
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful (our flight was 2h late so they put us on the one before in business class for us not to miss our connection)"
Cons: "A lot of delays, on both flights. We spent twice as much time waiting than flying."
Pros: "Food provided, staff kind"
Cons: "Was several hours delayed and check in took 45 minutes because they somehow lost my reservation."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and the food was great."
Cons: "Something did not go right with our booking so it took some work for the airline to get it figured out for us. Thankfully we had left plenty of time. But that was an unexpected stress."

Pros: "Nice seats, comfortable."

First bag arrived a day late, second after I had left Billund and it was six days before the bag with my clothes reached me. I was told I will have 100 euro credit for clothing, but in the winter and for 6 days, this was not even close to the amount I needed for clothing and necessities, to have my time here."

Pros: "Service impeccable!"
Cons: "They have one line of executive class after the kitchen and toilet, is very noisy."
Pros: "Very little if any."
Cons: "Aircraft was not very clean,the staff seamed quite harsh at times when speaking to customers. The food was really quite poor but it was a short flight to be honest. Overall not as pleasant as the China Southern flights. I would not like to choose them again unless i had to."
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised they had a snack service on such a short flight. The flight attendants were very friendly"
Cons: "Amsterdam customs is the most disorganized I have ever seen. With the number of tourists entering the country you would think they would have done something about it.

Pros: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes initially then a further 20 making it an hour late.

Pros: "Great food and movies."
Cons: "Might have lost my bag. I was told not to claim my bag and that it would meet me at my final destination. That did not happen. I even paid extra because of the over weight. When they charge you 100 extra euro you expect your bag to make it to its final destination."

Cons: "the checking in took very long not enough staff for the amount of people."
Pros: "One crew member servicing first class was in a mood “not to be here” - it is sad because of first class experience is higher than usual! It was just bad!"

Pros: "Lovely crew, very good entertainment system."
Pros: "It was on one of their newer planes which meant that we had decent comfort and entertainment!"

Pros: "Customer service and efficiency"
Cons: "The delay because of a software glitch"
Cons: "The time. Ity was very delayed. Almost lost my last connection."

Pros: "We were kept informed about the delay"
Cons: "Has to wait 14 hours in Helsinki for a 25 minute connecting flight"
Pros: "The staff were thoughtful and kind. They checked on us and offered snacks and water very regularly. My favorite, though, was that the captain took the time to alert us to the sights out the window. We had closed the shades at the request of the attendants and would have missed the beauty of Greenland had he not alerted us to peak out. I appreciate that!"
Cons: "Not offered a beverage ."
Pros: "I was surprised with an amount of drinks and food provided.Everything was delicious, and we were very hungry so imagine our happy faces. The crew was professional in all ways.Flight was smooth and comfortable-applause for the pilots!"
Cons: "Whoever designed and built this airplane should literally be INDICTED - AND I AM NOT KIDDING! We were in disbelief the moment we boarded and saw the airplane. 10 people across jammed into the row??!! - and on an long international flight?? - are you kidding??!! Further, these were the SMALLEST seats I have EVER been forced to sit in. Neither I, or my friend came close to fitting. We literally had to alternate getting up and standing because we were literally overlapping each other when we sat! (His shoulder and arm were literally on top of me!!). It was so bad that when the stewardess came rolling down the aisle with her cart, I had to be aware and see her in advance so I could literally TURN MY BODY OVER TO THE LEFT HALF ON TOP OF THE PERSON SITTING NEXT TO ME SO SHE WOULDN'T TAKE OFF MY ARM AND SHOULDER. ULTIMATELY, SOMEONE, OR MORE THAN ONE PERSON, IS GOING TO GET SERIOUSLY HURT BY THIS RECKLESS, GREED-DRIVEN DESIGN!! The OVERT GREED by the airline (American) clearly reflected by this in trying to JAM as many human beings into a flight as possible like Sardines is DISGUSTING!!! You simply DO NOT TREAT HUMAN BEINGS THIS WAY!! It is also clear evidence that there needs to be tighter standards, regulations and penalties by the FAA and what is allowed by airlines. AND I AM SENDING A LETTER TO THE FAA!!!"
Pros: "Made up some of lost time from delayed departure"
Cons: "Seats cramped"
Pros: "Bulkhead seat Good choice of movies"

Pros: "the crew were very friendly, well organized. movie selection was great. meals were surprisingly good and plentyful"
Cons: "not enough leg room. and i have to point out that I am a petite 110 lbs, 5'2" woman. as soon as the person in front of me reclined their seat to either sleep or lounge, I had my food tray on my chest and the small tv screen 8 inches away from my nose. Thankfully Im small but the man sitting next to me was rather tall and had to turn into a human pretzel to fit in that seat and space allotted."
Pros: "The flight was great...the staff are wonderful people...they are so sweet and kind...they work so hard...the service was great...I love their personalities..The Movie selection was awesome...Because of my broken leg, they were there to help me right away...amazing crew...will be flying with them again in October....looking forward to flying with British Airways again... Thank you for the care... Yours Truly, Sylvia Smith..."
Cons: "I have no complaints at all...."
Cons: "No TSA pre check"
Pros: "AA fly to/from Charlotte and if you are lucky you'll get a local NC crew, southern drawl included. The A330's are nice, even without Prem Economy the seating space is decent on the former USAir metal."
Cons: "The USB charge points do not work. Plus, the touch screens for the IFE require a lot of hard tapping on the screen, annoying for the people in the seat on which back the screen is placed."
Pros: "We ended up being on a BA flight which was fine. Ok service, check in from London much better than USA. In flight entertainment good."
Cons: "Nonchalant crew on the way back, I asked if they had any snacks half way into the flight as I didn't eat dinner, I went to the galley and the head of customer service heard my request, looked at me and just carried on reading his paper leaving a flight attendant to offer me a small bag of pretzels , which she had to search for. Very poor"
Cons: "I wanted to go home early..... They wanted to charge me 400 dollars to change my booking"
Cons: "The movies did not play on my screen. I tried to use the screen on the seat next to me and the movies quit in the middle. It was very annoying."

Cons: "I am 6'1" tall. Seats were designed for 5'1" persons."
Cons: "15 hours before the flight, I was locked out from the website to check in and secure seats. I then called British airways to do so and after 15 min of the agent trying to get seats, she told me that there was a shutdown and no passengers were able to do so and everyone had to book seats at airport. When I got to Heathrow, the agent told me that was not true and everyone was able to book online.. Misleading!"
Pros: "The inflight movie selection."
Cons: "The uncomfortable chair."
Cons: "Never picking up garbage (telling us the next crew will do that) The cabin a mess. NO LEG ROOM. Terrible."
Pros: "Traveled BA and it was lovely, as usual."
Cons: "The flight staff on this particular BA flight was not as accommodating and friendly as I am so accustomed to on BA. Perhaps the flight attendant in charge of our seats was having a bad day. Also, the food on our BA flights to and from NYC was not up to scratch and rather bland and ordinary, compared to their usual. that was a huge disappointment."
Pros: "Service was great"
Cons: "Food wasn't very good"
Pros: "Flights were on BA not Finnair"
Cons: "Ba website did not work properly."
Pros: "geting off"
Cons: "To cramped so I will go back to Delta"
Pros: "it was fine"
Cons: "My Finnair flight from London to New York was cancelled due to weather conditions in New York. I understand that. What made me very frustrated and angry is that when I contacted Finnair to reschedule the flight I was told the flight was managed by British Airways and I would have to contact them When I contacted British Airways they said it was a Finnair flight and I had to contact them. I finally had no recourse but to buy another ticket through another airline. I feel that I should be reimbursed for my Finnair ticket from London to New York! I paid for a flight I never took. (The Finnair flight from New York to London was fine.)"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. Pre boading not enforced, all passengers boarding at the same."
Pros: "Although I booked this as Finnair, it was actually a British Airways flight, as I knew it would be. And it was fine--I don't think Finnair gets much credit, but whatever. I'd actually have liked to travel with someone more exotic!"
Cons: "I booked this trip thinking it was with a European carrier - I had specifically wanted to avoid an American carrier. I was unable to confirm my flight online and had to ring because at NO POINT was I sent info that it was AA and not Finnair. I was charge almost $60 for this service because I did not have the right references sent with my confirmation email. T he seats were cramped and uncomfortable, I was unable to pick my seat on any flight and despite my request could not change it. Boarding at Chicago was a farce, none of the ground crew seemed to be in charge and we barely started boarding with 20 mins to takeoff. Needless to say the flight left late and we had to wait to take off, and of course had to wait to land in London."
Cons: "experience was awful. Helen Rowena Boysen"
