Cons: "I will go again"
Pros: "We were delayed coming out of LA. Arriving in Manila, we were in the tarmac for 30-40 minutes The crew has a habit of yelling out to passengers for them to remain seated instead of approaching them to ask them to remain seated ...AS OTHER AIRLINES DO. Very off putting and shocking."
Cons: "The crew can be nicer, more gracious. Hospitality is their trade. I observed that they have a habit of calling out in aloud voice to passengers to remain seated bothered us. It is embarrassing and comical to watch. Other airlines do not do that. The crew must go and talk to them politely."
Pros: "Great entertainment, pretty good food."
Cons: "Service was okay but nothing special."
Cons: "seats 26A and 27A are terrible seats. The seat divider is 4-5 inches wide and protrudes in to the footwell. When the passenger in the forward seat places his seat all of the way back. It is almost impossible for the person in these seats to get out to the aisle."
Cons: "The delay with boarding time caused me to almost miss my connecting flight in Taipei, where my checked bag was also delayed and did not check through concurrently with me."
Pros: "Good service and flight attendants. I paid extra for exit row seats and I'm glad I did on a flight this long (13+ hours). I think that probably made a huge difference (six feet tall). Boarding was extremely orderly."
Cons: "The seat smells like it was not clean. They did not serve snack between lunch and dinner. You need to get it at their station. We were really thirsty and a bit hungry..."
Cons: "rude people. yelling to passengers"
Pros: "I like the food and entertainment. But they should served drinks more often as possible rather than waiting for the customer to ask for it."

Pros: "Food & entertainment"
Pros: "Great landing"
Cons: "Everything was solid."
Pros: "My favorite part of the meal was the pork congee"

Cons: "The crew are not that friendly. And I cannot understand the pilot or the announcements being said on the PA system."
Pros: "location design service"
Cons: "I didn't like the food. The worse was that all my luggages were soaked with water. Water was still coming out from the suitcase when we reported about it to the Eva counter in HONG KONG AIRPORT. WE DID NOT KNOW HOW AND WHERE THE WATER CAME TO MY SUITCASE , FOR WE HAD NOT PUT ANY LIQUID IN OUR SUITCASE. BESIDES, THERE WERE OTHER TWO PASSENGER'S RAISED THE SAME PROBLEM to EVA WHILE WE WERE THERE IN THE AIRPORT OF HONG KONG. SHOULD EVA TAKES THE RESPONSIBILITY OF IT?"
Pros: "I slept through most of it"
Cons: "Airplane food"
Pros: "Had to request a wheelchair at the last minute. Staff was swift and courteous. During the flight it was rather bumpy so drink/snack service wasn't as often.

Cons: "Wait for wheelchair was rather long. But it's holiday season and it's last minute so it's to be expected."
Pros: "Love the experience of tasting all the different variety of foods, and the AMAZING shopping they had to offer, not to mention the friendly people I came in contact with."
Cons: "Since I traveled with my daughter (4yo), I got to board early from LAX to TPE but my second flight from TPE to BKK, I had to wait till they called my zone seat. I was holding my daughter at that point since they took away my stroller way earlier than the boarding time. I would like to ask for the same standard of parents traveling with children who are 6 or younger to board first so they can get settle and these patents are tiring from dealing with their children during the flight. They are extra tired than regular passengers."
Pros: "Seat is wide enough"
Cons: "Some crews are stress as I could see it in their facial expression"

I had great customer service from the lady who check me in at the front desk and my perception of my experience change great."

Pros: "The seat was comfortable"
Cons: "The vegetarian ovo lacteo food could be much better. Because I am vegetarian doesn’t mean I can’t eat chocolate"
Pros: "Nothing! They made me very upset!"
Cons: "They made me cancel my 6 month stay to a 30 day stay when I arrived at the airport, otherwise they would not allow me on the plane! They said I needed a vista for the length of stay which I always get when I am in Manila for the past 8-10 years that I have been going without any prior warning before I confirmed this booking! I was charged $500.00 to change the departure date! Outrageous!"
Pros: "Friendly, professional crew."
Cons: "Bit of turbulence, but hey that's what happens when you fly."
Pros: "Overall the boarding experience and crew were some of the best I've had. Food was excellent and wine pairings were spot on."
Cons: "The entertainment selection was pretty limited and without Wi-Fi on the flight, it was the only thing available to pass the time. Would have been nice to see a larger selection of things to watch while in transit or available Wi-Fi service to browse on my own devices."
Pros: "Staff and flight crew were all really nice, very professional and attentive. Decent range of video/movies available. 2 meals - ok"
Cons: "Delays on both legs of flight- significant and multiple delays from jfk to icn... made the experience not so great, as my daughters 1st time flying this didn't help - and no compensation at all. Emails and notifications not in english! Not given an actual reason for flight delay. Seats VERY uncomfortable, might as well be no cushioning on the seats in economy. With such long flights you would think that an airline would want even economy to be somewhat comfortable sitting for 14hrs or more"
Cons: "Transfer in Busan is a disaster"
Pros: "The entertainment had a good selection, although the headphones and connection on the armrest wasn't perfect. Also the food had a pretty good selection."
Cons: "The discomfort of being on such a long flight. Hard to be comfortable. And unable to sleep for any stretch of time."
Pros: "Service and food"
Pros: "Excellent personnel, really polite and helpful all the way"
Pros: "Spacious plane"
Pros: "Great seats & crew"
Pros: "Superior attentive and hospitable staff. Will def book them again!!!"
Pros: "The food was good and the service was great. The flight attendants were very attentive."
Cons: "I had to pay $200 for an extra bag because they told me that my bags were all over weight. Come to find out, the scale was broken and my bags were actually underweight. So I ended up with 5 bags instead of 3. My main issue was comfortability. Due to the person behind me, I couldn’t push my chair back and so I had find different ways to sleep."
Cons: "when they leave laugage in korea and they deliver within 2 days"
Pros: "Great friendly staff, good food."
Cons: "Both legs were late, the first nearly making me miss the next. Lost my only suitcase for the trips. Seats are really uncomfortable."
Cons: "NO OUTLETS IN SEATS FOR 14 HOURS AND TV FROM 1990"
Pros: "i like the simplicity. Asiana landed in korea Incheon which i love."
Cons: "i had to pay 200$ for an extra bag which was overweight. maybe it’s my fault but 200$ is a lot"
Pros: "Delicious food."
Cons: "4 hour delay"
Cons: "few new movies in the list"
Pros: "It was nice to know that JetBlue and Asiana are connected. I did not need to claim and check my suitcase for the connecting flights anymore. The entertainment device was also nice."
Cons: "I think JFK rather than Asiana was the issue. It was quite cold inside the boarding area, and the waiting area happened to be unpleasant because of a lack of seats and the noise. The announcements before boarding happened to be annoying. Lavatory happened to become quite messy at the end of the flight."
Pros: "Chair to chair distance is spacious."
Cons: "Being stuck on the runway for more than 7 hrs with "mechanical problems" was to much!! Than getting off & told to wait from 8pm till 3am for next flight had to sleep on the airport floor!! Was told we couldn't leave because no one to check us in at 3am! I'm only 10min away from airport!! Then when I finally got to Manila they left my bags in Korea! I had to wait till midnight before I could get my bags!! So i couldn't get a flight to a smaller island I was heading to! To meet friends they totally screwed my vacation!!"
Pros: "food was ok but. sandwich was the worst i have ever seen."
Cons: "boarding was confusing."
Pros: "Good leg room, clean aircraft, short flight. I'm 6'2" and had good leg room. All you can ask for on a fairly short flight."
Pros: "Service is very polite. Attendants are some of the nicest I've ever met, though their English (and PA announcements, etc) will be a bit hard to understand unless you're used to communicating with folks for whom English is a second language. They're also all softspoken, which is very soothing, but even harder to understand what they're saying! Seats are also BIG and have a great recline (seat and seat back) on the Airbus. Flying on a daytime departure from NYC to ICN I had a lot of empty seats to stretch out on and it was pretty quiet for a long flight to Asia."
Cons: "Seats are HARD! I'm not sure how you even make a hard airplane seat but they've figured it out on the Airbus for sure. The solution: get a second pillow to use as a seat cushion. Solves the problem. Also, the "upgrade" to the bulkhead seat is only good if you have a baby in a carrier or really long legs. If you like having your bags near you, or want to keep stuff at your feet to work on, or like to raise the arm between seats, or have a tray table and pocket in front of you... you won't have any of those in the bulkhead upgrade seat. And the phone customer support simply doesn't know enough English to explain these things properly. Fortunately someone else was happy to switch with me. Lastly, they really don't understand that special meals do not need to lack in flavor. Non-Lactose Meals are super boring in flavor - and there was no reason at all not to serve the bulgogi or spicy pork dishes for the NLML! They seemed surprised when I asked to switch it, which suggests to me that the attendants don't even know what 'non-lactose' means, though they were very sweet about confirming and delivering me my special (bland) meals. But asking for a packet of gochujang solves that problem!"
Pros: "Food was OK but nothing spectacular. Variety of beverage is OK, there was a snack in between meals, overall, the flight is good and by expectation for the price I got for the tickets."
Cons: "the seats are not comfortable,"
Pros: "Great entertainment options. Great service. Delayed flight for 2 hrs"
Cons: "They lost my bag"
Pros: "Food given even though it was a short flight"
Pros: "Great modern, spacious and quiet plane Airbus 380, great entertainment options."
Pros: "service and food"
Pros: "Crew very polite; food was really good; in flight entertainment good; and plane was modern and clean. Most imprtantly our check in agent was very capable and helpful. We had a hard time checking in on line, and as a person in my 60s I very much need an asile seat which she arranged. Check in was extremely efficient in a crowded airport. Would definitley fly again."
Cons: "Check in website not good. Could not choose seats in advance. This could be much better."
Pros: "The food selection is good and the service is tiptop. Highly recommend"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "2/4 bathrooms were out of order"
Pros: "Crew was nice and competent"
Cons: "Cabin lights went on three quarters into the flight and wouldn't go out and there wasn't enough water"
Cons: "Entertainment console was broken."
Pros: "The flight was on time, the people in the plane were very polite and the movies available were very varied and good."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Plane was clean and attendants polite"
Cons: "Boarding seemed very random as no rows were called."
Pros: "Crew were professional, helpful and attentive. Food was good for economy class. I have never seen a plane board so fast and I will fly with them again."
Cons: "Couple inches more leg room."
Pros: "The flight attendants were responsive and polite. The foot rests at the economy seats were a nice bonus. The bathrooms were well stocked and mostly clean. The entertainment was OK. There were mostly action movies which aren't my thing."
Cons: "The check-in line was about an hour long. There were way too few people at the counters for a very large plane. I pre-weighed my bags on scales that weren't being used and moved things around. The really stressful part was my carry on bag. It was overweight and transferred things to my handbag and into my suitcases as much as I could. The only things in my carry on were my laptop and medication. It was still 2 kilos overweight. I appealed to the manager who said I had to check it. Checking a bag with my medication would be dangerous to my health and we know they wouldn't reimburse me for the theft of my laptop. The manager, Yeonju Lee (first name may be spelled incorrectly) was completely inflexible and devoid of compassion as was the check in agent. They said the restriction was due to security measures, which is a lie. I've traveled all over the world with carry on over 20 pounds and there has never been a problem. They said I had to correct the problem in 7 minutes or I would not be allowed on the plane. Ultimately, I almost missed the flight. I had to ask people in the security line if I could go ahead of them. If I can avoid it, I will never fly Asiana again. The seats are hard as rocks which is difficult for a 14 hour flight."
Pros: "The hospitality was excellent and the flight flawless."
Cons: "The migraines from traveling to the other side of the world."
Pros: "It was a very efficient flight. Everything was just quick. The flight crew did everything in a very programmed way."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Cons: "I purchased ticket for my son to travel to and from ROK, on his return he was told the time on his itenary was incorrect and that he needed to contact the airline. He was put aside and the ticket agents continued to help others. My son informed me and I made multiple attempts to call all three of the airlines connected to his flight (Asiana, Haiana, and Jet Blue) who each kept putting the blame on the other airline. No one helped me. I continued to make calls back and forth. My son went in line again as his flight departure time was approaching quickly. He was told the same thing and had to stand aside in the line again. This was his first time traveling alone. I was very concerned and it was at the middle of the night here in the US. I did not sleep throughout the night trying to call for help to help my son on his flight or another flight because he had already missed his flight by this time. The manager for Haiana was only able to tell me that she created a help desk case and they will get back to me. It has been over 24 hours and I ended up paying a thousand dollars for a new ticket to get my son on a flight this morning as he was left at the airport all this time and he needs to be back for school. The ticket cost more than it was for his original round trip ticket and it was the cheapest I could have found after a long search. I really think that we should be refunded this money and deserve an explanation for why my son could not get on his flight because during the phone calls I was told that the flight did leave as scheduled and on time. Please advise."
Pros: "Amazing service, comfortable and clean air craft"
Pros: "I had the economy XL seat and was quite comfortable"
Cons: "Other than earphone (one ear) not working, all others are good. That was the 2nd pair with the same malfunction, so I suggest changing the earphones."
Pros: "Easy boarding procedure."
Cons: "Seat was broken. The seat's back kept returning forward. Not a lot of water and snack we're given for flight this long."
Cons: "I am an average-size person but even for me I found the seats were small and uncomfortable."
Pros: "all long flight is uncomfortable. The crew can help made a big difference. The airline crew seem to be too busy, ignoring when you try to request something. Ignoring you even they saw your coffee smear because desk is too small and slippery. Curtain was close all the time, as if not welcoming people"
Cons: "Crew can help made a better trip by slowing down thing. Snark area should be open all the time."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and helpful (ie, helped me with vegetarian options). Everyone was pleasant and friendly."
Cons: "More comfortable seats, needed a back rest or thicker pillows. Will opt for premium seats in the future."
Pros: "The flight TPE - HAN was fine. The flight SFO-TPE was OK. The seat in premium economy did not recline properly. Service seemed to disappear for several hours during the flight. I am not as excited about using premium economy for my return. The seats in economy look very narrow."
Cons: "Answered above. The seats looked bigger and better but the equipment looks tired."
Pros: "Food and service from staff onboard the flight. Seat was also very comfortable. Overall very good"
Cons: "At check in the staff felt while flying business class that my carry-on bag was too heavy so they asked me to take papers out and just walk with these. FYI I always take a lot of paper with me to read and as it was a 16 hour flight to Taipei and a subsequent flight of 1.5 hours to HongKong that is what I did. Was really ridiculous and upsetting to get treated for a one wat flight payong $2750 like thos"
Pros: "The staff was friendly for a very late and very long flight"
Cons: "Almost 70% of the plain was stuffed into economy seating while 60% of the economy plus was empty and much more spacious. I feel like optional upgrades should be announced when this is the case, especially for a 16 hour flight"
Pros: "Lots of selections on entertainment during flight, good movies and music."
Pros: "Food is awesome!"
Cons: "The seating and the earphones could have been better"
Pros: "Flight went well and was on time"
Cons: "Seats were a bit tight. I sat in the middle with other passengers on either side of me. The foot space was very awkward as there was a metal support from the seat in front of me. One foot had to be placed on either side of the bar, sharing space with each passenger on either side of me."
Pros: "Service, food and amazing plane"
Pros: "Perfect landing. On time!"
Pros: "The staff was nice and very accommodating. The food was good. I was very comfortable the whole time. My ears were fine."
Cons: "I tried a lot of times to check in online but I was never successful."
Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Staff treatment, food, cabin pressure was off, cold temperature, uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Super nice service from the crew on the flight. And the young woman at the check-in counter in San Francisco was terrifically friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was just slightly delayed leaving in both San Francisco and Taipei. But the headwinds (certainly no fault of China Airlines!) made us 45 minutes late in Taipei, making us a little anxious about making connections, especially when we saw the long line to x-ray baggage going from one terminal to the next."
Pros: "Delayed for 24 hours with no compensation, please advise where I can file a complaint."
Cons: "Delayed for 24 hours with no compensation, please advise where I can file a complaint."
Pros: "Crew was great. Food was okay. Great comfortable Flight"
Cons: "Dis not get my sheets or pillow for the reclining seat. Movies are limited"
Pros: "Good service, good aircraft"
Cons: "Many movies were still the same as six weeks ago when I took the same flight."

Pros: "Over all a good flight experience. Would use them again"
Pros: "Great service, and attendant is very nice and answers all request promptly. Food is ok."
Cons: "Overall it's a great trip and smooth. The seat of economy class is a little bit tight, but that's probably the standard size of all carriers..."
Cons: "My seat table was broken and couldn't really eat my food without spilling and how people take forever to get off plane and staff doesn't regulate it should definitely make people who have multiple carry Ima wait until people leave to grab alll their stuff from cabin"
Cons: "Entertainment selection movies could be expanded."
Cons: "A bit scary on the landing. Something, maybe the tires, screeched something wicked."
Pros: "I loved the entertainment and seats!"
Cons: "Staff was polite but a bit cold. Good food but not much variety. No non meat option."
Pros: "Speed of checking in process"
Cons: "Only fed us twice during the 15 hour trip. I wasn't the only one who was hungry almost 9 hours after the first meal was served. Other Chinese airlines I've been on fed their passengers 3 times."
Pros: "i like their food."
Pros: "Service was great! Plane amenities were also great for economy."
Cons: "Food could have been better. The beef with rice tasted weird."
Pros: "The service was great. But they didn't really cater much to vegetarians."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and helpful! Good was served three times over this incredibly long flight. It wasn't horrible or delicious as it is airplane food."
Cons: "Wish the seats were more comfortable."
Pros: "Entertainment was excellent and crew very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It was August and they did not have ac blowing during 14 of the 16 hour flight. So warm I couldn't sleep. The other two hours the ac was too high making it cold...I actually liked that but the woman next to me didn't."
Pros: "Good selection of movies, staff was friendly. Seats were okay, fairly spacious. It was nice that they gave everyone both a blanket and a pillow."
Cons: "Food was extremely salty and the selection was terrible. I was given the same pasta for two meals (first time I had a choice, second time only pasta again). Even the same type of pasta but the second time there was some chicken in it too. It was gross."
Pros: "Comfort, space, movies"
Pros: "The SIN / TPE flight had a nice, new A350"
Cons: "Bathrooms on the SIN/TPE flight were really dirty. The leg rest is too protruded even when not deployed."
Pros: "The food, the plane."
Cons: "Was delayed twice from Ho chi Minh city to Taipei and from Taipei to New York. I didn't miss the flight though"
Pros: "Full range of movies. Lights down much of the flight for sleeping."
Cons: "They don't offer the long flight supply bad with eye mask, ear plugs, tooth brush etc. They don't come around often enough with water or drinks."
Pros: "Good service and facilities"
Pros: "Service of the staff. Not as attentive as I would have liked, but definitely wasn't horrible."
Cons: "Selection of entertainment was poor, comfort was horrible (may be my own fault as i'm tall, but i don't recall getting an option to pick a seat prior), and boarding could have been better."
Pros: "Aircraft wasn't crowded and the staff were great"
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly. Aircraft was on time."
Cons: "No beverage service before meal. No Western choices for meals."
Pros: "Crew and staff were all very responsive and proactive in providing assistance, seed genuinely eager to help. Boarding was fine, and a representative of the airline took initiative to form a preliminary queue at the terminal departure counter despite the airline not having an all-day dedicated counter."
Cons: "While its 4-seat layout was better than some anes' 5 seats in the middle column, the seating was, of course, cramped, and I did not have enough space under the seat in front of me to stow my backpack. I also wish Kayak had included easy means to select seats and special meal options. Apparently to do so requires visiting the airline's own webpage."
Cons: "Check in online process and meal selrction"
Cons: "I did not recieve an itenerary or reciept of purpose. This is very frustrating because it meant that I had to search for flight times and GUESS when my flight would leave. I'm very dissatisfied."
Pros: "Good flight crew"
Cons: "Hard to understand English and didn't exert enough effort to let the connecting flight wait for 5 mins. Had to extend half a day doing nothing in the airport instead."
Pros: "My flight to Taipei was a positive experience. Premium economy was quite an act of kindness to oneself. The seats were roomy and comfortable. Noise canceling headphones are worth the weight in gold. I would recommend the seat as worth the extra money."
Cons: "The food actually was surprisingly poor. The congee simply didn't deserve the title. Sludge perhaps would better suit it. The next meal was much better with the shrimp salad."
Pros: "For such a short flight it was fine."
Cons: "Boarding was later and leaving the runway was late. It was a late flight already so this made it even more tiring."
Cons: "I chose the western style dish - needs improvement."
Pros: "Everything's just fine"
Cons: "My luggages are lost"
Cons: "Using the same airline and terminal, they caused us to miss our connection by not having a jetway to a gate. In the time it took to deplane and bus to the terminal, they caused us to miss the connection. This in spite of the plane being still at the gate when we arrived."
Pros: "My 18 year old son was the one who traveled and it was his first time on this airline - he was very satisfied with the trip."
Pros: "nothing, terrible experience"
Cons: "everything should have been better"
Pros: "The food (two full meals) and amenities provided by Aeroflot was wonderful. Staff was helpful on the flight and provided us with plenty of drinks."
Cons: "We boarded the plane at the time the flight was supposed to depart without explanation as to why there was a delay. Then we sat on the plane for two hours without explanation again. Landed 45 minutes after the originally planned time. Our connecting flight to athens was going to depart in 15 minutes, but left us and 58 other passengers. Poor communication to the passengers and then poor communication or help from the airline. If they would’ve waited 15 minutes, 60 people could’ve made their connection. Instead we have to wait 6-7 hours to board another flight. The customer service at the Moscow airport was sad... only two people at the desk for 60+ customers needing new flights because of their unexplained late departure."
Cons: "US bought carry on case been requested to be checked as a second baggage piece for $100 fee. And then both opened lost and not reached destination."
Pros: "Cabin staff sometimes curt and unfriendly."
Cons: "Public announcements garbled and hard to understand."
Pros: "I love Aeroflot"
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Cons: "They are to strict with the luggage size and the weight"
Pros: "Vegetarian options"
Cons: "My skis did not arrive in the luggage. Airline company or airport needs to have a better sustem tracking luggage and making sure no items are lost."
Cons: "Спиртное больше не подают - это большой минус . Так хочется сесть в самолёт , расслабиться , выпить бокал вина , так его даже и в продаже не было!! Стюардессы были не очень приветливые в этот раз . На вопрос ( а его задавали многие как я слышала) последовало -не знаю , нам не докладывают - ( сказано было грубовато). Ну а то что в Москве надо было получать багаж -крайне неудобно , если это не отменят, то думаю что буду летать из США в Минск через Европу."
Cons: "Delay of 4 hours in Moscow"
Pros: "the crew was very good but the food was very bad frozen can't eat it is will never fligh again with this flight"
Pros: "everything was great"
Pros: "Some of the typical premium economy features in the economy class - like the slippers and eye masks, open snack bar, ice cream between meals, menu for meals."
Cons: "Limited choice in alcohol. No whiskey. No healthy options in snack bar."
Pros: "All went as scheduled"
Cons: "They lost one of my bags at the Moscow connection."
Cons: "I didn’t fly because i try to cancel my ticket but vayama give me hard time. They sad we canceled your ticket but they didn’t after that i try to get new date, they sad you lost your ticket. I newer ever booking kayak and vayama again. Thank you for i lost $700"
Cons: "Passengers were left for international transit"
Cons: "My trip was delay more than two hours"
Cons: "No wifi even thought it says there is"
Cons: "No real order to boarding."
Cons: "There was a delay"
Cons: "No organization to board. Long lines, people pushing and cutting."
Pros: "awesome - planes, staff, food, all great - smooth, courteous and friendly. The best airline!"
Pros: "המושבים שהוזמנו היו נחמדים. היתה טיסה נעימה"
Cons: "הטיסה יצאה באיחור. חזרנו בלי המזוודה שנאבדה עוד בהלוך!!! מה איתה, ואיפה הפיצויים על הרכש המיותר ועגמת הנפש?"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff"
Cons: "Did not switch the lights for a long time after ate."
Cons: "No wifi no tv!!!!!! What kind of airlines is that?????????????"
Cons: "Aeroflot lost 3!!!!!! pieces of our luggage. Still cannot locate one of the pieces. Ridiculous!"
Pros: "Очень вежливый и заботливый персонал, отличное обслуживание, профессионализм летчиков ( мягкая посадка и надежность в полете), прекрасное меню и организация питания в целом, чистота в салоне и туалете, обеспеченность всем необходимым в полете, возможность просмотра фильмов в полете. Класс самолета Боинг 777 нравится. В целом очень хорошее впечатление от полета, гораздо лучше, чем от полета на Дельта и Юнайтед в США."
Cons: "Неточность в исполнении расписания ( скорее всего не зависит от аэрофлота). небольшой выбор фильмов для просмотра."
Pros: "the aircraft"
Cons: "almost no english anouncements"
Pros: "Frendly personal!!"
Cons: "no comments"
Pros: "Good movies on board."
Cons: "Boarding was late, take off was late, I almost missed next fligt, my luggage arrived to my final destination only day later"
Cons: "Line for check-in was extremely long at JFK (New York) which it seems caused boarding to be late. It's good that I had time to catch my connection in Moscow."
Cons: "They didn't ship my baggage. And I had to wait for it for a couple of days. They airplane landed very fast and I it caused a headache."
Pros: "everything was perfect"
Cons: "DELAY FOR 1.5 HOUR IN jfk"
Pros: "Exselent servis !!thank you !!"
Pros: "Boarding took extra 1.5 hours"
Cons: "The bread... my GOD, who can eat this??"
Pros: "Comfortable and well served if they believe you're foreigner."
Cons: "Employees of Aeroflot in Moscow were very rude and unprofessional toward their customers. I happened to know Russian and was trying to communicate through it. Big mistake."
Cons: "There was no fish on the menue, and I don't eat meat or chicken. Other then that it was great!"
Cons: "Boarding is done by sections not by rows"
Pros: "Great crew, on time, could get a good nights sleep"
Pros: "The crew and service were welcoming, caring and attentive"
Cons: "Many people bring the own headphones these days, but I didn't and provided phones were so-so, volume on touch screen was jumpy too,"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. The food was good"
Cons: "The flight was late to Helsinki and we missed our connecting flight to Barcelona that was also on Finnair. I was given a hotel voucher to a nice hotel with a complimentary dinner voucher. The dinner was a buffet that was limited and less than mediocre. A chicken option was not even provided, no soup"
Pros: "Flight as such was good and smooth"
Cons: "Better food, but nowadays unless you fly on business or first you are doomed and cramped beyond belief, any improvement comes at a price"
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "Check in was extremely slow and we almost missed our flight. No explanation given and didn’t make sense because there wasn’t a long line. Then one piece of luggage did not make it onto our flight."
Pros: "The choice of entertainment is huge"
Cons: "The fisical conditions are terrible. Seats so narrow and rows are so close, that you practically pooched into your neighbors, those that behind don't let you to recline your seat as then your seat is in their face. It looks like American Airlines hopes to exchange your reality with virtuality, but our bodies that we are for some reason taking with us on that itinerary - suffer."
Pros: "Express customs and immigration for connective flights with individual passes!"
Cons: "Total disaster. Back up lines at AA JFK . Staff at a loss, equipment ? Shortage of bins, no supervisors , ... deliberate chatting and slowing down upon manually going through majority of carry on."
Pros: "The shortest flight time between NYC and St. Petersburg Russia. Good connecting time, smooth transition in Helsinki."
Cons: "I have never used this airline before and as it was highly rated, I was glad to give it a try. The seats were crammed together very tightly, even for me, a short person! So, the flight was uncomfortable. Then the food was poor. The selection of films was uninspired. The service was indifferent, disinterested, ungenerous. There was something meager, miserly in the whole experience. They are obviously maximizing profits at the expense of the customer, who seems totally disregarded. I would not choose this airline again!"
Pros: "Fantastic service staff food and beverages"
Cons: "Just slightly hard when laying down on the seat to sleep"
Pros: "Hot towels distributed before meal."
Cons: "Sitting behind me plus the seat across from that in center was an adult with two children going to summer camp in US. There were 40 kids and several counselors on this flight. These two kids were much younger (4 or 5yrs) than any others going to camp. One of the kids could not sit still. The adult behind me sometimes held her in her lap which resulted in pushing on my seatback. While in her own seat the child did not have her seat belt on. Eventually the girl began using her arm rests on either side of the aisle to swing herself. I finally mentioned this and the lack of seat belt fastening to F.A. who said "They're from Latvia. These Eastern Europeans don't think about things the way you and I do." The child was blocking the aisle at times and the F.A. did nothing."
Pros: "The food was surprisingly pretty good"
Cons: "It was an old plane (A330-300). The seats are not very comfy, not much leg-room, and not very stable (i.e., when others are getting up in front or behind you)"
Pros: "leg room, service, movie selection"
Cons: "the arm rests don't go up, the food was weird. It's nice that they served two meals but both of my vegetarian option meals were cold and unidentifiable."
Cons: "I don't live in Riga and had pick up scheduled in Rigas airport to take me home to Telsiai, Lithuania. Because flight was delayed and I had to fly to Talin and then to RigaI I arrived at 10pm plus took me another 30min to figure out what happened with my luggage. I am still in Riga waiting for the morning to schedule another ride home. Very long , inconvenient trip ;-("
Pros: "Great crew and service"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Not only no space to get comfortable but the seats themselves are not comfortable. We had better constructed seats on the hopper from Edinburgh to London. It is unconscionable that long flights are so uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Boarding was easy"
Cons: "Drinks were for an additional charge"
Cons: "Another upgrade charge, no extra leg room but a seat "near the front" (row 8). NO entertainment system. Only food service was on-board bistro, which sadly I slept through because I was exhausted from getting absolutely no sleep on their crummy transatlantic flight... There are no 'zeroes' to give, so can only give a 1 star poor rating on food, entertainment and comfort. Crew, again, tried in the face of a crummy airline."
Pros: "This was a very good and on time flight from London to Helsinki. The exit row had lots of legroom."
Pros: "Slow boarding no order. Plus delayed flight for no reason"
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!"
Pros: "The crew made the entertainment free because of the delay. They were very hard working to make things right."
Cons: "Plane was late at Fenver and Heathrow and into Geneva. Plane seating was uncomfortable for such a long flight. This is an airline issue not specifically BA/Finnair."
Pros: "The accommodations made me feel like I was in first class!"
Cons: "The screaming child behind me ):"
Pros: "Food was provided when the flight was delayed for 2 1/2 hours. I also really liked the text update from kayak about the delay. The airline did not keep me updated but kayak did."
Cons: "The delay when it was already a 6 hour flight. I also was not able to reserve a seat because I had booked through kayak and not with the airline. Finally of the most irritating of all annoyance was that there was no movie. This was an international flight and there was no entertainment. I will never fly American Airlines again."
Pros: "The crew were lovely, as were the people checking us in at the airport!"
Cons: "We waited 3 hours to fix a water problem on the tarmack and were seated in the middle of a large group of school kids. Would have been happier without those 2 elements."
Cons: "One of the crew members was rude."
Cons: "I sat in the window seat. Trying to get out of the row is very difficult. The arm rests do not rise high enough to get around without needing to climb over them."
Pros: "Food on into fight inedible..No Food on domestic. Charge for everything."
Pros: "Pretty quick to get on board, entertainment was great, seat comfort was good., wifi and prices were stupidly over priced and slow.,"
Cons: "American Airlines as usual has overly priced non-working wifi on a 10.5 hour trip.. He food was ok at best.."
Pros: "Loved the flight attendance!! They were friendly, witty and flexible."
Pros: "Wonderful service from the crew, especially given that we were traveling with a toddler and an infant on such a long flight. Everything went smoothly."
Pros: "Great airline. Food great comfortable seats."
Pros: "Flight was 2 hours late taking off. Completely ruined plans we had made for our first day in London"
Pros: "For economy it felt roomier than other flights I have taken recently. Enjoyed the food the movies and the cabin staff."
Pros: "The flight attendants actually seemed to enjoy their jobs, they all were very nice and smiled not like other airlines where the attendants are very stiff and anything you ask for seemed to annoy them. Drinks sizes more generous than most airlines."
Cons: "a long flight from lax to lhr needs more snacks and refreshments"
Pros: "Travelled on B A Air Bus. I found it to be comfortable compared to previous flights operated by other airlines. Crew was excellent Overall it was a very good experience."
Cons: "The food - well it's airline food - ok but nothing exceptional."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Loading was like a cattle car. Drinks were slow to be offered. No drinks until after food was served more than one hour into the flight. No one ever seemed to check if I needed anything. When I did, there was no call-button. Seats were from the 90's and VERY narrow. I would NEVER pay for First/Business class on Finnair again. It was very poor."
Pros: "As always, BA did an excellent job with my evening flight from JFK to LHR. They were prompt, efficient and very helpful and although my flight was quite full, we left on time and had no issues in the air. I was very pleased with their service and especially as I paid such a low fare through Finn Air, I can't complain. This was a great option to utilise, rather than paying BA's more expensive fares. I would definitely go through this way again."
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!"
Cons: "When I arrived to board my flight I was highly unsatisfied with the excessive charges I received for my luggage that was overweight (only by 7 pounds). I was not only charged an additional $100 for my second checked bag, but I was also charged $200 for the extra weight. As a college student traveling abroad for 6 months, I did not expect to be bombarded with these fees at the beginning of my journey. Due to this experience, I would like to have been notified ahead of time of the expected charges as it made me uneasy before a long flight."
Pros: "For once the seats have enough space. Airlines think we are cattle and that they can pack as much as possible every airplane. For once I was glad to have a confortable experience."
Pros: "Nice one"
Cons: "Nice one"
Cons: "First of all, though this was booked as a Finnair flight, Finnair was never part of the process after the booking. We rec'd an email from Kayak saying we could check in 36 hrs early - not so. Even at the 24 hr mark, we were unable to check in via Finnair - had to go to British Airways. Finnair was not represented at either airport - British Airways. On the return, British Airways canceled our flight (2 hrs before takeoff), and we could not get a non-stop flight home. This meant that we had to change terminals, retrieve our bags at the layover, recheck, etc. which of course, added 3 hrs to the original length of the trip. Where's our compensation? We paid for a round trip non-stop flight."
Pros: "Everything else"
Cons: "Both the British Airways attendant who check me in in Chicago, and the British Airways attendant who checked me in in London, were not paying attention to my final destination and did not mark my luggage for my final destination."
Cons: "Long wait after boarding waiting for bus. Bus out to plane. After boarding, horrible stench of fuel fumes inside plane. Probably very unhealthy and carcinogenic."
Pros: "Is old aircraft. Few tv in all the airplane. My system didn't work"
Cons: "I will not fly again with this American airline"
Pros: "I loved the flight it was o. Time the flight crew was great"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "The boarding process was expedient and the food was ok and standard for these flights."
Cons: "I travel at least 1 week a month either to Europe, South America or across the United States. The Airplaine was extremely old and looked like it was not refurbished at all since the 90's. Unlike basically every other airline (including airlines from the developing world) the plane did not have a personal entertainment system which is rather vexing considering the flight is so long. The decoration of the plane looked old and worn. The crew were more interested in getting the job done quickly than properly."
Pros: "The flight was fantastic. It wasn't a full flight so I was moved to an exit row for more leg space. All the crew was very nice except for one lady. They distributed water often which was nice. You get options for dinner and breakfast."
Cons: "My problems began after landing. I booked a flight from LAX to Amsterdam, with a layover at Heathrow. When I originally checked in, they didn't send my things all the way through to my final destination. I had to exit the airport at Heathrow to retrieve my bag and go back through security, while trying to make my connecting flight."
