Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Couldn't take flight because passport didn't have 3 months extra on it. Lost all my money."
Pros: "Great in every way except at the end when there was no wheelchair."
Cons: "Upon arrival at Munich, I and a clearly handicapped gentleman were led on foot to an elevator and then to a golf cart. There should have been a wheelchair, at least for him. But it got worse...see my next flight."
Pros: "Service was great. Very comfortable. Free movies during the flight. Decent food. Never flew with this airline but it was great!"
Cons: "Chairs could be a little more comfortable"
Cons: "birding a lttle faster would be good"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled a few hours before boarding, whereas I had gotten a boarding confirmation via email less than 24 hours before the boarding. Crazy."

Pros: "the aircraft, the food, on time, the crew"
Pros: "Lots of movie choices"

"I missed the flight!!!! , they left me !"
Pros: "The crew was awsome"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "The aircraft (operating the route due to the COVID-19 shortage in traffic between the two cities) was extremely nice and quite/comfortable. The service was better than expected, as I didn't expect food to be served on dishes like it was during the pandemic. But it was amazing!"
Cons: "The crew didn't have their masks on sometimes when coming back into the cabin as they simply forgot (the new norm is hard to get used to) so maybe the airline can stress the mandatory use of face masks at ALL times. Furthermore, for my comfort of the flight (with COVID) the FA's should use gloves"
Pros: "The Food and Service was good."
Cons: "All good!"
Pros: "I was not allowed to board the flight."
Cons: "Consistency of communication online and at the airline counter about who is able to fly right now."
Cons: "There was a dilay"
Pros: "There was nothing really special or to write home about--flight got us there safely and ahead of schedule, albeit, uncomfortably (seats were extremely thin and uncomfortable) and the pitch/distance between seat rows was extremely short & cramped.."
Cons: "Seats could have been more comfortable; they were extremely thin and uncomfortable--and airline could give more legroom/pitch between seats."
Cons: "I was charged $60.00 for luggage"
Pros: "Crew was really wonderful"
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable and the food was terrible"
Cons: "Instead of saying what could have been better, I want to praise the excellent wheel chair service at Munich airport. She went above and beyond, helped us find an alternatively connection after we missed ours and while reassuring us about the solutions. She was First Class service. Thank you."
Pros: "Not much compare to other airlines"
Pros: "The crew was kind and attentive. The food and complementary drinks were satisfactory. There were many movie and television options."
Cons: "The lady next to me got into an argument and no one intervened to defuse it. Not sure what protocol is there. The seats reclined too far into my personal space making me feel uncomfortable."
Cons: "Los Angeles to Frankfurt on an A380 was great. Flight to Tel Aviv was good. But trying to navigate around Frankfurt was very difficult."
Cons: "Female flight attendant was rude and unprofessional."
Pros: "Crew, connections with other flights, entertainment"
Cons: "Lufthansa has always had great food quality but with this flight it was dissapointig."
Cons: "Ac leaking water on my head. The seat not working properly, I had push it upright with my own hands to get it to be upright."
Pros: "Great movie choices . Flight on time, comfortable. No turbulence, smooth."
Cons: "I did not like the food … I’m allergic to dairy so I can’t have cheese or cream in pasta or milk in polenta with beef stew. So there wasn’t anything for me to eat. Plus the crew should tell you what kind of pasta you’re getting! I got the pasta but I didn’t know it was filled with cheese and cream but by the time they came back to me I told them that I can’t have this they didn’t have anymore left of anything so I didn’t have anything to eat. And the breakfast the next day was awful. And by the way I saw that the crew had a really good meal. I should be able to pick up meal ahead of time… When you’re booking. It was a long day with no hot meal."
Pros: "The crew onboard the flight was very friendly and accommodating! They did their best with what they had. I also like that there were diabetic and vegetarian meals offered, although the diabetic meals should ideally focus on lower carbohydrate totals. Fruits and breads can pack just as much sugar as sweets."
Cons: "Starting with the boarding area at LAX, there was some really high pitched siren that kept going off over and over which no one seemed to care to investigate or do anything about. It was very irritating, and seemed to put lots of passengers in a bad mood before the plane even started boarding. Then when they announced boarding was beginning, everyone got up and created massed around creating four chaotic lines. It was a mess. We left 45 min late, which caused us to run to make our connecting flight because the person at the gate never told us it was also going to be leaving late. The plane itself was extremely uncomfortable as well. I'm 5'8" tall and that's mostly torso. I fit easily in the back seat of my buddy's mini Cooper, and I could barely fit in the space without my legs hitting the seat in front of me. That was before the guy in front of me put his seat back and made it so I could barely reach under my seat. Then there was the control panel for my personal video monitor. The panel was located on the armrest in just the right spot where Everytime I put my hand down I accidentally pressed a button to call the flight attendant, or turn the video screen on off, which was really obnoxious when I was trying to sleep and kept accidentally turning on the bright screen which woke me up. The video monitors we're also touch compatible, but the screen was horrible about registering finger presses which led to the lady in the seat behind me smashing the screen as hard as she could repeatedly with her finger, which vibrated all the was through my headrest so I could feel it as if she were trying to get my attention. There was also no air flow above the seats... You simply had to rely on the flight attendant to set a temperature that the whole cabin enjoyed, or you had to suffer silently. Finally, the reading lights on the plane we're so high up that turning one on lit up all the seats around you as well, which meant you had to choose to either sit in the dark and not read, or turn on your light and read quietly while the people around you cursed your name while attempting to get some rest."
Pros: "This 10+ hour plane ride was one of the longest and one of the best flying experiences we have had. The flight was smooth and comfortable. The flight attendants were very nice and their hospitality were second to none. We will definitely fly with Lufthansa again!"
Cons: "A little more cushion on the seats please!"
Pros: "Food was good. The flight left on time. There were so many movie options."
Cons: "There were a few crew members who clearly shouldn't be working in a customer service industry. I understand it's not an easy job but many other crew members were quite bubbly and kind."
Pros: "I liked the interior of the cabin and the crew was professional. Crew on this flight was Ok."
Cons: "Food was not good, but I really do not care too much about that... If you judge an airline based on the then fly someone else..."
Pros: "everything about this airline always amazing. Great service well thought out, friendly staff, everything happened as it was supposed to and I felt very cared for."
Cons: "it was all great and professional."
Pros: "Service on board was good."
Cons: "The walk to the connecting flight was too long and took a lot of time."
Pros: "Service was efficient and non invasive."
Cons: "We had to land in Bari, due to weather, and the airline initially wanted to take us back to Munich for the night and return to Naples in the morning. They ultimately opted to drive us down to Naples but didn’t arrive at that decision until we’d been on the ground for quite a while."
Pros: "I very much enjoyed my flight from LA to Munich. The flight crew were awesome and the airplane was impeccably clean and quiet. The flight was so nice I consider it as part of the vacation! I highly recommend flying Luftansa :-)"
Pros: "Great Seats / Bedding Excellent Drinks Excellent Service Delicious Food."
Cons: "Boarding was a Zoo. No real First Class announcement; confusion of which line was Business, First, or Economy, no clear announcements. This is the 2nd time this is happened in a row. Not sure why. Movie Choices were pretty poor, but TV series made up for it."
Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "Bad seats in premium economy. Rude staff."
Pros: "Boarding procedure: well organized Crew: very polite and supportive Seat comfort: good Extra bottles of water very good idea Selection of magazines: good"
Cons: "Blankets too small, material only mediocre Food: rather mediocre (not very tasty); limited choices; poor quality Entertainment: audio and video selection needs to be improved; not was I was looking for; movies too old"
Pros: "The food and service"
Cons: "I don't have my luggage yet!"
Pros: "Friendly flight crew, clean and nice airplane"
Cons: "Can't think of anything. Keep up the good work"
Pros: "We landed safely and weren't too delayed."
Cons: "Food has not been good."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly."
Cons: "There was at least 4 hours' delay in getting to St. Petersburg, due to the storm, and there was hardly any food or water served while waiting."
Pros: "I like the flight from LAX to Frankfurt. Everything was comfortable and great service"
Cons: "The flight from Frankfurt to TLV was a joke. I paid a big a business class ticket. The business class was the same seats as coach the only thing is they have nobody sit next to you on a middle seat . That was not a comfortable seat. That was not a business size seat .very uncomfortable . No entertainment I will never fly with Lufthansa to Israel again I'm top of everything One of my surfboards got damaged badly and I have to file a claim in the airport. Very disappointed"
Pros: "The flight left late and arrived late. I had ordered a wheelchair, for me. At the gate there were two of them for about 20 people. The people (personell) Spoke amost no English and only poor German. I was told to WALK, because no chair was avaailable or would arrive in due time. ABSOLUTE CHAOS: The 45 minutes delay at landing did not enhance things -- missed my connecting train. Dr, W. Hartwig"
Pros: "This was one of the most aggravating flights. I had a connection. Both flights were delayed and i had to run through the enormous frankfurt with my carry on cat. When i got to the next flight it was delayed 30mins and there were little updates. When i arrived in oslo i was late and so missed my connecting train. I had to wait 6 hours in the station for the next train. An exhausting and frustrating experience. There was one helpful steward on the lax frankfurt flight but the rest of the staff was not helpful."
Pros: "Selection of movies in the entertainment section. Food"
Pros: "Online check in is efficient, staff both at the airport and on board are friendly and helpful. Seats (economy) are OK. Onboard entertainment is good (good choice of films, TV shows and games)"
Cons: "Food - as usual airline food is mostly inedible and unappealing. I usually eat at the airport before the flight and skip the meal onboard."
Pros: "The purser was very nice and professional, especially when some other crew members sometimes were not. Food was good and the seats were a bit less tight and narrow than in some other airlines."
Cons: "Our toddler kept pushing the call button, which was very hard to prevent. A first crew member told us to stop it without telling us how - which is quite difficult. Only the purser later helped us to find a solution by gluing something over it."
Pros: "Aircraft, crew, drinks"
Cons: "food, unfortunately:( I usually don't complain about food. This time around though, the chicken was not good, and the breakfast was also just okay. For long haul flights, I wish they started installing seats that reclined back more. It's impossible to rest in the currently standard economy seats. I'm ready for new inventions in this area."
Pros: "Comfortable seats 2-4-2 seat formation means less stress if you have a window seat Good food Good storage options"
Cons: "Crew seemed curt and unfriendly Very small pocket on the back of the seat in front of you Decent movie selection but could have been better"
Cons: "Incredibly, when we went to the British Airways desk to check in they said they didn't have our tickets (!). They put us on standy-by even though we'd booked the tickets and paid in full seven months in advance. Once we eventually got on the plane, it blew a tire on the tarmac and took five (!) hours to fix. There was another short delay finding a gate once we landed in Heathrow, then they lost my luggage and I've yet to receive it. Far and away the worst flight I've ever taken. Avoid BA if you can."
Pros: "Airplane had a flat tire... thank goodness they changed it before the flight."
Cons: "Flat tire took 2 hours to change, I'm shocked that they are still using this type of Equipment for a trans Atlantic flight."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and helpful. Meals were decent for airline food. Blankets, headphones, and even a toothbrush were provided."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed departing which made for a long journey becoming even longer. Seating area fairly cramped in economy class (not too surprising I suppose). Rude Brit behind me kicking and pushing my chair because like 90% of the other passengers I reclined my chair on this overnight flight and he took that as a personal affront. Not the airlines fault I had the only jackass on the flight directly behind me, but impactful none the less."
Pros: "That it got to my destination, eventually."
Cons: "The co-flight wasn't made clear to me. This was an American Airlines flight as is my return. Beyond the brand and gate confusion that resulted from this, the flight was delayed a couple hours and the plane looked like it hadn't been refurbished since the 70s."
Pros: "We were delayed 6 hours due to snow storm. I was impressed that we still took off and that the crew put us all in business class once we took off. The airport staff did s good job of frequent updates in a difficult situation."
Pros: "They were not stingy about alcohol."
Cons: "I had called the airline ahead of time for a bassinet seat. On 31st Dec not so many people fly with babies. There were only 2 babies including mine, but they still had just one bassinet seat and one high chair. The high chair was a ridiculous option. Very uncomfortable for an infant. In spite of calling and requesting ahead of time, no bassinet seat. I have traveled in other airlines and they have been far more accommodating. Seats were very uncomfortable and service was very poor. Coffee/tea served was not hot. So overall very bad experience and I am possibly never taking BA again."
Pros: "The food was pretty bad, not what I am used to with British Airways."
Cons: "sets it was very small"
Pros: "We got on the plane easy and quick, and the crew was nice"
Cons: "Plane was old and outdated. no entertainment in seats no power in most seats seats are WAY to small. No room for knees at all. If person in front leans chair back, I can kiss their head (without trying). Please fix this."
"The food was terrible. My luggage did not make it from NY to Heathrow as best I can tell. American says that British Air had it and lost it. It took them four days to get it to me. Also the food on American from SFO to JFK was superior to that of JFK to Heathrow. I also did not get my Global Entry TSA Pre status on the British Air issued tickets and had to do the whole thing in security which was a drag. It was not a good experience. The fully reclining bed with the privacy configuration was definitely the best of any of the airlines so an excellent for the plane seat / bed configuration."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Pros: "I was unable to board my flight given British airways misinformed me about a COVID test prior to boarding for a flight to Israel. This resulted in a $50 fee, loss of money."
Cons: "There should be no charge and a refund issued for a mishap on behalf of British airways."
Pros: "From JFK to London, staff was friendly."
Cons: "From JFK to London, a large number of passengers were not wearing masks properly and the crew did not take action other than a reminder early on. From London to Edinburough, the crew was somewhat rude."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled"
Cons: "If flight took place"
Pros: "That we got home safe"
Cons: "It wasnt a BA plane! Food, staff and entertainment all not really up to scratch"
Pros: "crew members are polite and clear in instructions"
Cons: "the check-in time is very long, need to open more counters"
Pros: "Sarah the Cabin Manager was amazing."
Cons: "The business seats are horrible"
Cons: "nothing - service for the money was top notch"
Cons: "Baby sharing seat with parent was very crowded"
Pros: "Boarding process was very quick."
Cons: "Some sort of entertainment. There was nothing."
Pros: "Seats had tv monitor"
Cons: "Check in was horrible and inefficient. The seats are smaller compared to most major airlines (Delta, AA, Air France, KLM)"
Cons: "The seating is appealing. Impossible to sleep. I will be “ saddle sore “ for days. Please look at the padding and upgrade"
Pros: "Not much, except that I got to Nashville."
Cons: "I was told that boarding was about to stop, and that the doors would close any minute. As it turned out, this did not happen for at least 30 minutes. I was among the first on board, and really worried I'd miss the flight. The bathroom sink was out of order, no way to wash hands, a health hazard!"
Pros: "Crew did their best to deal with the multiple delays."
Cons: "Having a plane that was properly prepared to fly. Not stealing my Limoncello Cream and tape measure."
Pros: "New clean plane"
Cons: "Limited leg room if unable to upgrade. Unexciting food."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Inflight meals and entertainment seat pitch"
Pros: "Crew and seat comfort."
Cons: "No entertainment, not even available if you paid."
Cons: "2 Hours delay I lost my connection it took like 10 more hours to get to my destination I finally got to my destination my luggage was misiing today is Tuesday July 24th and I’m still waiting no luggage and dress with the same clothes since Sunday"
Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly."
Cons: "They lost our luggage and then located in another country but wouldn't fly it out to us until 12 hours later. We could not stay in the airport that long with a toddler. Food was terrible, no breakfast provided and not even water provided on our connecting flight to vce."
Pros: "Comfy, but small seats. Good food, nice crew"
Cons: "Small, old, buggy entertainment screen. Seats very narrow"
Pros: "The re-routed , 5 hr late, flight (to Gatwick) was comfortable but we were left to track down BA reps to get a hotel voucher at 01:30 with the airport shut down."
Cons: "Abandoned at Gatwick after midnight."
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."
Pros: "Crew was late due to Thanksgiving traffic. The Crew was then very rude during the flight and unapologetic for what has to be the most ridiculous reason for a flight delay I have ever experienced. If a passenger had that excuse, do you think the airline would wait for the passenger? Lame."
Pros: "We had more room and were comfortable for a long flight ny to London and back. All flight crew very nice to me and my 85 year old mother."
Cons: "Not enough seats in waiting area in JFK gate"
Cons: "Unable to book a seat in advance"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours because of hydronic issues. I feel asleep and missed the food which was part of the ticket wasn’t woken up. Was then woken by the passenger behind kick my chair which was not comfortable at all and the entertainment system was something out of the 80s, screen so small could see the picture that well and the touch screen was not that reactive. Cabin crew we grumpy. Ashamed this is called British not what I called British........"
Pros: "Efficient and convenient"
Cons: "The cleanliness of the plans...my tray table has crusted food stains and the magazines in the seat pocket had gum all over them."
Pros: "Extremely pleasant crew!"
Cons: "Very crowded flight and plane."
Pros: "Its hard to consider a flight where you got bumped up from premium economy to business as anything other than a 10!"
Cons: "The dining choices in the terminal British Airways uses are dismal. I am not sure British Airways has any input to this but the line in arrivals for US passport holders was approximately 2.73 miles long while the line for UK/EU passports was perhaps 40 feet long - not a very welcoming situation. Perhaps a little pressure applied by the major airline could improve this situation."
Pros: "Excellent service and amenities"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "The food, the seats were old and cramped and i could feel every movement from the ppl behind and actually got shouted at by the man in front of me because i put my water bottle in the pouch in my seat. He thought i was punching the seat. inflight entertainment was brutal, limited selection of movies and bad ones at that. The screen was old and pixelated..... Food was bland and not edible. It was a red eye and we were not given eye masks, toothbrushes or ear buds. Horrble experience ill never fly BA again"
Pros: "Smooth and nice flight. Crew was friendly and attentative."
Cons: "I found it surprisingly coincidental that both my wife's and my checked bags did not make the flight to Santorini. Of course, given how the process in dealing with Kayak and this booking, it did not surprise me. Any calls or customer service related questions were handled as though we were 2nd class citizens. I've never been treated like this traveling, but always the attitude came from "oh, you booked this through a discount site" and then I was handled accordingly. I booked it through Kayak for ease as I planned a 7-city, 21 day trip around the Adriatic. Now we'll do our honeymoon without a wardrobe change, filing claims for the contents of our bags, as no one can tell us what happened, or where the bags are, and we're about to depart for our next city. Never, NEVER book a trip from a 3rd party. The seats next to the toilets that don't recline, attitude from airlines, now my first lost bag in 10 years (I fly 3 times a month, too)."
Pros: "It was on time and transfer was easy"
Cons: "Purchase through viyama, an Iberia flight that was a code share with British airways and American Airlines. Iberia is terrible with getting its passengers online check-in on their code share partners. Was unable to check-in, got stuck in middle seat. Return seems to be the same situation with American Airlines."
Pros: "I loved the crew - they were very helpful and communicative. The food was also good, and I enjoyed the movies."
Cons: "My seat would not recline, so when the lady in front of me reclined her seat, eating and watching movies became difficult. The crew were very helpful in trying to solve the problem, but the seat was broken so they could do nothing to help me. They offered to move me and my son, but we had settled in and so decided to decline the offer."
Cons: "British airways is a shitty airline, I was stuck in Heathrow for almost 2 days, pregnant and alone. British airways has poor communication, poor leadership and no customer service skills. My flight was terrible and I will never be flying on British airways in the future. I will also be telling friends and family about my experience and ensure that they also don't travel on this awful airline."
Pros: "It was quick."
Cons: "The EMB140/145 is just a bit too confining for me... I don't normally suffer claustrophobia on flights, but I seriously almost stepped off the plane immediately after stepping on, given the low ceiling, and confining nature of the plane. If it had been a full flight, I'm not sure I would have made it without a full blown panic attack of claustrophobia."
