Cons: "Seat"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Food was great. Clean bathrooms. Great entertainment."
Cons: "We had our passports and boarding passes checked five times in the course of 2 minutes by five different people one after the next. My cabin luggage was searched right before boarding. I appreciate the need for security, but that was excessive and unnecessary. In the peak of the Corona virus craze, the security made all passengers take off shoes and walk without any protection. This is not Qatar Airways doing - New York JFK security B S, but I am sure airways companies have some say to change it."

Pros: "Flight was on time, baggage was quick, got out of airport and on my way."
Cons: "Deboarding out on the taxi way in Doha, then busing us to the terminal, took a long time, we were dropped in front and had to go through security again, should have been an easy connection but ended up rushing. status boards in Doha are not that clear, change a lot"
Pros: "Crew was very accommodating"

Cons: "No complaints great flight"
Pros: "Passengers with kids up To ten yrs should be boarded with passengers with infants...otherwise excellent service...i like flying with Qatar airways.."
Pros: "First time flying on Qatar and must say that the crew was excellent. One of the best crews I have ever flown in the last 22 years of New York - India sector. Special mention for HAIFA my hostess for flight QR702 on April 12th. She was the best hostess I have ever had!"
Cons: "The food wasn’t bad but since I flew Etihad in July 2017 from New York to Abu Dhabi to Mumbai and back my memories were fresh and Egihad’s food was definitely a notch higher."
Pros: "The plane had everything I could want."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the plane was late, prompting me to miss my connecting flight. These things happen, I understand, but most upsetting was the fact that Qatar Airways provided very little information to those of us missing our flights. While on the plane, when those of us with short layovers mentioned that we may be late, we were told "you'll be fine - they hold the planes for a bit." When we deboarded the plane from New York, we ere wrangled into groups depending on our destinations. Many of us assumed that we were going to be taken to our next flights as we had been told they would be waiting for us. The airline rep in charge of my group refused to tell us any information, however, only admitting after we got confrontational with her that we had missed our flights. She then offered no information about what would happen to us, telling us we'd find out when we got to the rebooking counter. Very unprofessional. I was told that I would have to wait for another 24 hours for the next flight, necessitating that I would spend the night in Qatar. I was put up in a hotel that was decent, but again that offered very little in terms of customer service. We were given an $80 meal allowance, but despite me not using it, I was nickeled and dimed in other aspects to where I ended up paying $20 to help reschedule a flight that I had missed in my destination country. The whole ordeal was a nightmare and mostly due to poor communication and very cold, almost robotic interactions with the QA staff on the ground in Doha."
Cons: "Even though we landed in Doha before our connection left ( barely-20 min)on Qatar airways, they would not hold the connecting flight for the 7 of us who were connecting. This was extremely disappointing as we then lost a full 8 hours of our first day arrival. If they schedule you for a 45 minute connecting flight, I suggest you book a later one. Our flight from NYC left on time but was 20 min late landing. Their only compensation to us all was use of the airport lounge in Doha ( quite nice with free food wine and showers, but would rather have had the extra day in Bali."
Pros: "Flight duration was short"
Cons: "Nothing in particular"

Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Everyone on duty!!"
Cons: "Food options on both legs were terrible. On the first leg, only one of the three options was actually available. I understand that you have to account for varied decisions by customers, but only having one of the three listed options when you're just half way through the cabin is pretty weak. Disappointed that entertainment options hadn't changed from the previous month."
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The screen of my seat and my mom ( sitting next to me) and the lady near the window stopped working after launching and we had to stair in the dark for eleven hours the flight attendant tried but couldn't fix it. The seat itself was broken and I had to put the bottom Cushing back every time I stand up.the cue to the rest room ( one off them has a broken lock so you can't lock it ) was very long and I had to wait for 25 minutes tell I got in ( the first time I waited too long standing in an air plane )"

Cons: "Long boarding lines at Liberty International Airport."
Pros: "Plane was modern and more comfortable than most"
Cons: "I do understand that it was an overnight flight but the crew came around only during meals and at no other time did they check on us. I hit the call button and nobody came - call button just went off. I was in the middle next to a sleeping passenger and could not get up."
Pros: "The crew was great and the dinner was really good!"
Cons: "Breakfast could have been better and the seat was pretty uncomfortable"
Pros: "Timing of flight"
Cons: "Baggage policy has changed and has become too restrictive. Wieight and size and number of checked baggage is below competitors for transatlantic flights.

Pros: "Food excellent, seating room to tight"
Cons: "Service in general, bad"
Pros: "Service was excelleny"
Cons: "The food was not up to the mark - the menu choice and combinations needs to be re-looked at for non-veg passengers. The choice of spirits was limited and not there at times. The flight attendants overall disposition towards the passengers needs to improve. - at times they forgot what was asked of them."
Pros: "Business class service is good"
Cons: "Economy service sucked . No attendants even after pressing buzzer 5 times in an hour . Had to go get the service on own . Few hostess were unfriendly. Most of the times the nonveg meals were over . This is not the first time . Every time they complain things in Menu are over . I am stuck to fly this airlines for mileage"

That lefte us about 30 mins before the gate closed From where we were dropped off we walked for about 15 minutes but were nowhere near our gate. We asked Emirates employees to give us a ride in the golf cars. But they all refused, until one had pity on us and gave us a ride. We reached the gate a couple of minutes before the gate closed. When we arrive in Kolkata we were told that out luggage hadn't arrived. They reached our luggage to our Kolkata home a 11:30 pm. What a nightmare. Never again on Emirates."

Pros: "The airline was good, food fine, entertainment good, and seats comfy."
Cons: "The delay for boarding wasn't communicated good."
Pros: "The staff - every one of them - was pleasant, helpful & knowledgable. Great combination - makes for a terrific flight! The food was really delicious. All 2 desserts we had were in the category of Spectacular! Stickey toffee pudding was off-the-charts fantastic! Chocolate Mousse was terrific and the lemon pie (?) was awesome. I would love to know the baker or confectioner of your offerings so I could purchase from home! Nice touch . . . offering hot steeped tea poured & ready to drink."
Cons: "Boarding seems so disorganized and is doesn't need to be. There were no clear directions for boarding categories which would have helped n the States because we are so used to following a simple procedure. More than that is needed in Athens where the V formation usually rules when talking about lines. Once on board, we were not served anything until @ 90 minutes after takeoff. If people didi not come on board with a drink - that is a long period of time to wait!"
Cons: "Electronic entertainment is poor and the whole experience rather depressing no matter how hard the crew tries"

Cons: "Nothing to dislike to be honest. Overall experience was amazing. Emirates is a great airline."
Cons: "My bag was left in Newark and did not make it to Greece. Absolutely unacceptable"

I got confused about flight time and day missed my flight and rescheduled it for another day they charged me again $260. Even I tried to call the airline 4 hours before nobody answered me . I don’t have time now to fight this case but I think it’s not fair…

Pros: "Seat was ok."
Cons: "Better food! Food sucked this time around"
Pros: "All what you think :)"
Cons: "The place's we are sitting can be better"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Person being me wouldn’t allow me To recline my chair and flight attendant didn’t do anyThing about it."

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The crew was professional and very engaging"

Pros: "Average Seat comfortably is ok"

Cons: "too good a airline .I recommend this to all passengers travelling"
Pros: "We loved everything about our flight, plane was so quiet and service was amazing"
Cons: "In Business Class, the seats did not recline all the way to become flat. Other airlines (including Qatar and Etihad) have seats which become flatbeds even in 3 hour long flights. Very disappointed that Turkish does not have that options from IST to ISB. The boarding experience from IAD-IST was excellent...but it was the opposite from IST-ISB."
Pros: "The food is ok as is the entertainment on board."
Cons: "The crew could be nicer and more responsive"
Pros: "Ahead of time, all the way!"
Cons: "Boarding crew were rude and unhelpful. They didn't check IDs which became evident when a passenger complained his passport was missing and the plane had to return to the gate so he could go back into the airport to find his passport. Had it been checked before getting on the plane we could have spared everyone the hour delay. really this was is the worst service ever. Avoid."
Cons: "The seat pocket of the seat in front of me was broken, which resulted in a metal wire poking into my legs for the entire duration of the flight. Not only was it uncomfortable and bordering on painful; but this could also potentially be dangerous in the event of an emergency!!!"
Pros: "Everything went well"

Pros: "Nothing isn’t good flight"
Cons: "I don’t have any thing to say everything are bad even Airport too bad to find WI Fi also has unclean bathrooms over there"

Cons: "Boarding time was supposed to be 19:10, we did not start to board until passed 20:00. Needless to say we were delayed. There was a woman at the counter,but there was no explanation given about the delay. Luckily it was the last leg of my journey and did not miss a connection flight,but being on an 11 hours flight just before, I was a little cranky. Overall I had a great experience."
Pros: "Helpful crew, good food, comfortable seat."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "We weren't seated together at first but they helped once we were on the plane"
Pros: "Great food and service. Turkish Airlines has always had a good reputation as we flew with them for years and that hasn't changed. My only one peeve was that I was asked by the flight to sit next to an unaccompanied minor in case of energency. Being a mother. I thought, no problem. The child then became my responsibility on a ten hour flight. Boundaries were crossed when it graduated from assistance to responsibility byt little one could do mid air."
Pros: "Arrived on time. Crew was very helpful."
Cons: "Too crowded Airport."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Hour and a half delay"
Pros: "Best Pilots The fleet is newer The individual screens and movie options Safety"

Pros: "Nice crew. Boarding and deplane was fairly easy and quick."
Cons: "Seats in coach are quite close and became worse when people reclined."
Pros: "It was so hot. A nightmare ! I Asked again and to turn it on. They did for few minutes at a time. Very upsetting"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Food, crew, comfort, not a full flight, enough room for everyone"
Cons: "Plane was one of the old ones but I understand why it was used on small hauls, but it could definitely be upgraded to provide the top of the line service and luxury Turkish is known for and stands for."
Pros: "The food was good and the entertainment selection was good."
Cons: "I landed in Istanbul for a 19 hour layover. I previously made arrangements to stay at an Airbnb nearby. I was made aware that a Visa is required while attempting to go through passport control. I had to leave the line I spent 30 minutes waiting in to go get a Visa for 25 Euros. I was never informed of this requirement by Kayak or Turkish Air. It was a very frustrating experience and an added expense for which I expect to be reimbursed."
Pros: "Over all Turkish airlines is a class airlines"
Cons: "can't think of anything I didn't like about my flight"
Pros: "Great entertainment, very friendly staff, decent quality planes , good beverages"
Cons: "below average food . Particularly for health conscious people."
Pros: "the crew in turkish airlines is always nice and courteous. and i really like the food they serve"
Cons: "not a fan of the tight sitting"
Pros: "I ve travelled many times on Qatar ,Emirates,and jordanian air lines but the Turkish was the poorest and the worst .A limited choices and little food ,and these people on the airplane donot do their jobs properly .I hope it will be better next time if there is a next time ."

Cons: "They ran out of homemade lemonade with fresh mint before I got any."
Pros: "Food, entertainment, and crew were great!"
Cons: "The food wasnt good .."
Cons: "the flight delayed for more than 2 hours the seats area was narrow in j-clas"
Cons: "I missed my first night of a booked hotel and activities, and I wasn't refunded for all of it."
Pros: "This is a government run airline with very poor customer service. I flew 6 flights in December, 2016 in business class - out of which 5 flights were late. There was no help at the transfer desk in Istanbul to get onto another flight as my connecting flight was missed because the original outbound flight was late. The customer service staff both at the lounge and the transfer desk were inept and rude and did not want to help. I shudder to think how economy passengers are treated."
Cons: "1) No organized boarding process - there is a general melee at the boarding gate with a lot of shoving and pushing. 2) Customer service staff are rude, incompetent and unhelpful 3) No recognition that customers are to be served 4) Food selection in business class was mediocre and poor 5) Old aircraft - on flight from Istanbul to London, business class was 3 abreast with the middle seat being used as a tray table. 6) Sleeper class is mediocre - seat width is poor and one cannot even turn on the side"
Pros: "Again, everything was great! The kosher food from La Casa was outstanding and your stewards are polite, helpful, hard-working and professional. You have a wonderful airline! R. Lerner"
Pros: "everythings was fine almost"
Cons: "the service serving the food and beaverage, to slow and just once a while,"
Pros: "I was upgraded to business class for this leg of my total journey. It was incredibly comfortable experience. The recliner seats with the massage feature add immensely to the overall experience."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hrs, no explanation given, the ground staff was no where to be found, finally one person showed up and he was not helpful. No formal announcement was made!"
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."
Cons: "The flight from DXB was delayed, causing us to miss the connection to LIS in IST. 2 hours after standing at the transfer desk they put us on a flight to LIS via CDG. Luggage was kept in IST. Now we are in LIS with no luggage and no confirmation on its whereabouts. Lost and found staff at LIS (Portway) showed total confusion in claiming luggage was in CDG. Today two planes arrived in LIS from IST, none of them with our luggage. Screen shows my name with mention "Not loaded" regarding the luggage. This incompetence is unacceptable from "Europe's best airline". This title is misleading advertising and should not be allowed."
Pros: "The seat were comfortable."
Cons: "Crew was cold and and very matter of fact. The food was very so-so. The food items have to be purchased other the food trays served unlike Turkish Airlines and Kuwaiti Airlines."
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "At check in"
Pros: "The crew made a bad decision concerning me and another passenger. I had extra leg room in front of him and he still insisted on crushing my knees with his reclining part of his seat. The stewardess choice to side with him because it was ok to crush my knees because he paid for a upgrade in seat,"
Cons: "I will be filing a complaint about this matter soon and request a refund for the total disrespect of me as a paying customer,which they did not value at all"
Cons: "Too many boarding delays"
Pros: "Crew was cordial"
Cons: "Check-in - it took 2 hrs to check our bags"
Pros: "Good crew, comfortable seat, plenty of storage"
Cons: "The inflight entertainment system"
Pros: "Spacious flight. Helpful crew. Efficient boarding"
Cons: "More food options"
Cons: "Clogged sinks"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and professional. Service was excellent and entertainment was varied with movies, shows and games with accompanying head phones."
Cons: "The foot rest in business class didn’t work, but the seat still reclined and was comfortable."
Pros: "Good news, the checking in process was so delayed as there were so many people, they made sure all who checked in, got on the plane, no hitches on the lugguages either. I got my lugguage in Singapore."
Cons: "JFK to Singapore through Abu Dhabi. The checking in process at JFK was a mess, it was a full flight. There were many people, trying checking in. Two lines, (1) checking in. (2) checked in, dropping off bags. Some of us who had checked in online was trying to drop off bags only. After waiting 1.5 hours, this line isn't moving at all, while the checking in line was moving. Tried telling the gentlemen in charge who worked there that the checked in line dropping off bagguage was not moving, he didn't really care, they made all kinds of excuses saying other people were waiting, so they were completely clueless as to what was going on. I have never experienced this ever and I fly massively each year. First and last time in Etihad. JFK to Abu Dhabi is a good 13 hour flight. NO SNACKS. SG/BA, or any other airline really has nice sandwishes, ramen, chocolate, cookies, chips. Etihad has NOTHING. Not that I snack but still with a 13 to 14 hour flight, airlines should have something to eat during long flights. Really. Etihad who brands and advertises brilliantly, was extremely disppointing to actually be on the flight."
Pros: "Overall excellent"
Cons: "Was not able to select seats online (even 24 hours before), was not able to check-in online, had stand more than an hour in the line for check in in JFK/NY"
Pros: "Shoud be treated good meal in flight."
Pros: "Plane was good, seats were spacious"
Cons: "Check in process was hectic"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Boarding not good no line turebel"
Pros: "Did not submit my meal choice in time but got the meal of my choice anyway."
Pros: "The crew were very good and attentive. Fight in both directions was smooth and very comfortable."
Cons: "In both directions, check in took forever and I was unable to check in online beforehand. The first flight, I waited 1.5 hr (perhaps that is the general experience from JFK) and in the other direction, at least 1 hr."
Pros: "They didn't let me n my sister fly. Plus they took 3 hours to give our bags back."
Cons: "The attitude of the airline n everyone was poor. No help nothing from anyone."
Pros: "I'd never flown Etihad before and had a 13 hour flight followed by a 5 hour flight with them so I went in with fingers crossed for a good experience. My flight from JFK to Abu Dhabi was on an A380 and it was a spectacular plane. The crew was amazing the entertainment selection was great, the bathrooms were clean - it was a great experience."
Cons: "I have no complaints other than it would have been nice to be able to go online and have a look at my seating & have the option to change my seat. Fortunately I didn't need to change my seat but it would be nice to have the option to at least look."
Cons: "The flight left > 2 hours late from JFK to Abu Dhabi, and my connection was changed midair. Instead of changing it to the next flight, they changed it to a flight 16 hours later so I missed my entire day of meetings. The paid internet did not work inflight so I couldn't check my connection or receive emails. The crew was not friendly, and they also wouldn't give anyone any information about their connections during the flight, which resulted in ~80 people rushing the crew and the desk. It was very messy."
Pros: "The staff were kind, professional, attentive, and each person brought a warm elegance to their interactions with patrons. My seat ate who was a stranger to me got messily sick and the attendant was gracious and helpful to her. Also the meal from Abu Dhabi to Bengaluru was the most delicious I've ever had on any flight, which includes some international first class travel."
Cons: "I have long thighs so my knees butted against the seat in front of me."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and quite roomy with seats; good and constant maintenance of toilets. Excellent and thoughtful e-entertainment"
Cons: "Flight attendants could be more friendly and attentive; seat and food sanitation could be improved more."
Cons: "Crew needs to be more polite to passengers. I witnessed the crew being rude to multiple customers. Also the good needs work. I've traveled Etihad multiple times before and this experience has made me want to not fly them again"
Cons: "they asked me to check-in my carry on (which i am always able to take with me, and which i was able to take with me on the first leg of even this journey). it came as a surprise and i was in a flux, Thank God I had my passport in my pocket or it would have turned into a nightmare (I keep my stuff e.g. jacket, wallet, etc in my carry on)"
Pros: "Crews were great"
Cons: "1. Ground staff was rude to me. Didnt help me to print a boarding pass of my connecting flight 2. The window seat’s space in the first row was quite narrower than others"
Pros: "Easy connections ,good flight ,food"
Cons: "Check in at JFK took ages as the ground staff just didn’t bother about balancing queues versus available agents. One quueue moves fast and the other got stick . Some of the agents were novices After boarding some passengers couldn’t find place for their carry on a. They were rudley informed that they are carrying large carry ones and were threatened with deboatdong if they weren’t fast in finding alternate places for their bags"
Pros: "timeliness, in-flight entertainment, food"
Pros: "Upgrade"
Pros: "This time the service was ok"
Cons: "Food was mediocre,and while boarding the buisness class and economy lines are chaotic, looks like no one is in charge!"
Cons: "Food wasn't good"
Cons: "Seats and IFE"
Cons: "Ground staff is so inefficient and checkin process at JFK and boarding at AUH is abysmal. Ground staff at JFK have no regard for time and on time departure. Seriously lacking in entertainment options inflight and food is mediocre. Etihad is seriously lagging other competitors from same region like Enirates. This would effect my choice airline for my future travels."
Cons: "Though happy there was kids meal provided seeing pasta in all 3 meals not very appetizing. Sweet side dish were mediocre at best. There were no snack available or provided for kids except the meal box. When requested milk for my kid some milk from flask was given which I was not comfortable giving to my son.. there were other issues but my sons comfort was the most Concerning"
Cons: "AVML food was requested but I have never had worst food than on this flight (ever in my life). The crew to abu Dhabi was Ok but I had the worst experience ever on the flight to Ahmedabad. The staff was OK only. The entertainment was sub par. I recently flew Delta domestic flights and it had many newer English and Hindi movies than on this flight to India, go figure. I think even Air India may have newer and many more movie choices than this air line. I flew my sick father with Catheter business class but the restrooms in the business class were same small pigeon hole size. We could not even fit inside to empty out the bag. Don't buy business thinking of the luxury of space. It is a myth."
Pros: "On this leg the general courtesy was great especially one particular hostess, Nikita. The movies and certain music on the menu were a good range."
Cons: "The food! 12 hours of mediocrity in a aluminium foil. My wife and my hand held consoles were not working and hence we couldn't use our reading light besides some other functional limitations. An elderly lady sitting in front of me had a bad bout of chills because of the cabin temperature (most probably) the staff never followed up on the help that fellow passengers had given to the lady. My prior two flights with this airliner were much worse My A380 experience in the Emirates has been MUCH more spacious and great meals with a predictably jollier staff. Qatar airways can perhaps even top that. The only thing I feel etihad has over these better rivals is the convenience of the US Immigration. As a NATIONAL CARRIER of the UAE, I'm quite unimpressed and disappointed."
Pros: "Crew was cool and service was good."
Cons: "Because I purchased the ticket from kayak I feel like they punished me. I had a 14 hour layover. I went to the counter ask about a meal voucher and they said I didn't qualify because I purchased through a 3rd party and so I sat there for 14 hours dreaming of when I would eat next."
Pros: "Nice plane, good crew"
Cons: "The entire menu was southern Indian with very strong spices and awful taste. I can understand that there are a lot of Indians on the flight but Etihad should have options for non Indian dishes as only Indians would have a taste for what was served. Very bad experience for our entire family."
Cons: "Quality of food"
Pros: "Warm crew"
Cons: "Some crew were mean"
Pros: "Main course not served in the Dinner. My wife asked to crew about main course they told to her it is completed I mean not available any more."
Cons: "Improve the services like Dinner quality and snak quality. In the Airport there is big q for checking no one is controlled and guding about line."
Pros: "Nothing...at check-in I was made to pay for 10 kgs for having 1 kg over weight"
Cons: "Everything...crew from JFK to Abu Dhabi was fussy and overall very rude...didn't even serve food properly"
Pros: "The economy seats have an innovative recline which really adds to comfort, especially for such a long trans-Atlantic flight. The crew was very professional and helpful. Efficient. The entire Etihad Experience was excellent. The boarding happened on schedule, the flights as promised. No missed connections, no issues with baggage. Top Notch. Very clean aircraft."
Cons: "For whatever reason they would not let me keep my carry-ons as JetBlue did, so I had to check one of them. They have weight limits for the carry-ons, which I understand, but in my case they really were not large, and not very heavy. It is what it is."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Seating is tight"
Pros: "I was more than pleasantly surprised by the level of service, comfort and food on this flight. I typically dread these long haul flights, but this was actually a pleasant experience. The fold flat seats are comfortable and roomy, the food and meal service, when you want it is convenient if you wish to dine on your schedule, not the airlines and the general high level and friendly service was much appreciated. The "lounge" space they have between the first and business class cabins is fantastic; its a small bar like area where you can get out of your seat and chat with other passengers, watch news, read or whatever, and not be confined to your seat. Overall a great experience, Arrived having slept, eat and drank well."
Pros: "The aircraft and leg space in rare seats."
Cons: "The boarding and getting off the aircraft was mess and no proper arrangement for transportation at Abu Dhabi. The ground staff was not cordial enough."
Pros: "Give more food options"
Cons: "Upgrade"
Pros: "Crew and service"
Cons: "Small toilets, tighter seats"
Pros: "The boarding process was seamless"
Cons: "The fact that my screen did not work and i could not sleep on the flight. It was very painful and nothing was done"
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Staff not treating Indians properly but treating Caucasian like lords."
Pros: "It got me from my home country to my destination."
Cons: "The movie selection was just mediocre...other airlines have much better (wider selection) & newer films. Also the flight attendants never woke me up for my 2nd meal, even though I very clearly used the sleep-mask provided that said "wake me up for meals" written in all over the front. I don't understand why this system was set in place if your cabin crew aren't going to use it...? Also did not like the mango custard -- was a bit weird. I'd recommend just plane/vanilla custard -- these flavors are much more widely appreciated by everyone. Mango is too quaint, even for those requesting hindu-vegetarian meals."
Pros: "The Airline light staff were polite and very professional! I felt accommodated and my questions were answered in a timely fashion. Did I also mention their entertainment system on board is epic lol"
Cons: "Make make an announcement to fellow passengers not to leave the lavatory a complete mess."
Pros: "Leg room fantastic"
Pros: "We finally got there."
Cons: "Make water available at Heathrow 5 (2drinking fountains for thousands) and no water or any drink on the plane."
Pros: "Wonderful to fly on a small airline that still believes in service - a free cup of coffee and a Tunnocks biscuit - whereas many larger airlines charge for coffee etc."
Cons: "Hard to get over having to recheck our luggage"
Cons: "I don’t like the configuration BA is using in Business class. The staggered seating with 50% rear facing makes griping in and out of seats"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Lack of punctuality (90 minutes late, due to “late arrival of inbound aircraft” as per usua). Ever decreasing seat pitch so absolutely abysmal lack of comfort. Dismal snacks and drinks for purchase. Bus service at LHR rather than jetty."
Cons: "Delays at gate while on plane(2hrs), entertainment system non-functional, AC non functional, seat selection lost."
Pros: "Good food good crew flight was good"
Cons: "While in London not good experience for old people especially if wheel chair assembly and to get AA airline birding pass is very confused need to b more in comfortable"
Pros: "On time, smooth and professional. Didn’t have food or entertainment so can’t rate those."
Cons: "I was travelling as a connection following a long haul flight from Australia and was desperate for a cuppa but had no money or English bank card and didn’t want to incur huge fees to use my Oz card so was disappointed there was no complimentary drinks."
Pros: "Nice crew Good food Good landing and no uncomfortable turbulence"
Cons: "Personal tv didnt work for majority of flight and when it did there was no audio (update technology ASAP)"
Cons: "Delayed, had to pay for beverages, tight seating"
Pros: "We sat on the run way for 2 hours. Absolutely horrible experience."
Cons: "Being stranded on the run way for 2 hours, ugh. Painful."
Pros: "Crew is incredibly kind."
Pros: "Great entertainment choices"
Cons: "Slow crew. Same good choices as flight just before"
Pros: "On time good flight"
Pros: "Food !!the services"
Cons: "The seats not very good and the tv screen"
Cons: "always late"
Pros: "The trip was short flight and on time"
Pros: "Got Home day later , slept on airport floor. Meal was poor , no more vegetarian food left . Wrap was given with chicken & maynosie where as Asian / Hindu veg meal was ordered ."
Cons: "Same as above ."
Pros: "Standard BA flight."
Cons: "Delayed departure missed connecting flight. Had to rebook and travel via Munich to make meeting."
Cons: "The flight was 1+ hour late, but little information made available, including basic info like gate."
Pros: "Crew and aircraft are fantastic. ."
Cons: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "None, just tha nature of economy travel. It’s designed for max profit and not at all for comfort"
Pros: "Flight was pretty much empty. I had more room to relax."
Cons: "Very old and antiquated video monitors. You can hardly see the videos. Strongly suggest a better plane between London and Washington DC"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Staff at Heathrow was professional and efficient. Staff on board was professional and friendly as well."
Pros: "crew attentive to passengers and always with a happy demeanour."
Pros: "Great service, and very smooth flight"
Cons: "I got to the airport the morning of my flight from Warsaw -Dublin and was told my flight was cancelled and no longer exists. Luckily I got a hold of my daughter who was in LA at this time and woke her up at 1am with this issue. She called the web booking company Webjet where you directed us to buy the flight, and was told by Webjet that my flight was cancelled the day before and we were not notified IN ANY WAY! By some miracle, my daughter was able to talk to Webjet and get me on a new flight last minute. Again, this is all happening at 1am California time while I am stranded at the airport in Warsaw! Unacceptable!!! I am however glad that the issue was resolved and I made it home safely. But I think someone needs to look into this immediately because if it wasn't for my daughter, I wouldn't have left the Warsaw airport due to the fact that the airline cancelled the flight and neither the airline, Kayak, nor Webjet notified me...."
Cons: "Food, but surprised that they served anything!"
Pros: "the Entertainment system"
Pros: "Friendly crew, spacious and comfortable seating and great food"
Pros: "There were no complications with my flight"
Cons: "Food is not so good, and the flight entertainment and amenities are not as good as other airlines."
Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Food bland and limited choice Do not like the new bottle service in Club Service slow Seats very uncomfortable and less seat pitch than on other airlines"
Cons: "Crew unable to control students passengers who are noisy, w/c made our travel uncomfortable"
Pros: "crew was friendly"
Cons: "Waiting 20 min to board , then waiting half an hour on the plane after that"
Pros: "The plane ride was excellent and boarding , ... was great. The class is not too crowded."
Cons: "The 8 seats per row in business class is very crowded and the practicality of it is far from optimal. The food is not much of a culinary experience"
Pros: "Plenty of leg room"
Cons: "Food Options were limited, Due to extra security in Gatwick with a 1 hr Layover, we were nearly left behind. To finish it off British Airways lost our luggage. I am very disappointed with British Airlines. This is the absolute worst experience flying I have ever had. I do not recommend anyone flying British Airways."
Pros: "Very spacious seats Incredible amount of legroom Professional staff/flight crew Quick and easy flight"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "I'm surprised there were no complimentary beverages. Also, this is not the airline's fault, but the woman sitting next to me was wearing an excessive amount of perfume, which gave me a headache. I think the airline should make recommendations for passengers not to be heavily scented. As a physician, I worry about patients with RADS (reactive airways dysfunction syndrome) who can develop bronchospasm if exposed to individuals wearing lots of perfume, and a plane is an enclosed space."
Pros: "Food was tasty"
Cons: "I was not able to select my seat until 24 hours before the flight without paying, which I think is ridiculous. Once I checked in 24 hours before, I was still not able to select my seat. The problem was related to me booking through a partner airline. The partner (American Airlines) couldn't help me because they couldn't access the BA seats. And BA couldn't help me on the phone to select my seat for some other reason (I can't remember). I had to wait until I got to JFK a few hours before the flight, by which time all the seats were filled and I was stuck in a middle seat. Basically, I think there needs to be better communication or coordination between BA and their partner airlines to help customers before the flight, and also it is absurd to charge $35 to choose their seat."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant throughout, however, even they referred to this flight being a comedy of errors."
Cons: "BA badly needs to invest in some new stock. 2 hr delayed departure as a tire needed to be changed. Took over 1 hour to get the entertainment system to work after 2 reboots. Leaking air conditioning vent above my seat. Food was mediocre. Snack before arrival is clearly cost saving, sandwiches have been replaced with a biscuit."
Pros: "The entertainment was great, I just watched movies the entire flight and had a great time."
Cons: "Needed more water but I guess they were busy with some sick passengers."
Pros: "Very incredible from check in, flight and service! Well done"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Noise level when people were trying to sleep; seats not too comfortable"
Cons: "Cancelled with no opportunity to rebook. I missed my entire trip!"
Pros: "same service from AA"
Cons: "Chairs"
Pros: "Nice large plane that wasn't near capacity."
Cons: "Long delay with minimal compensation. Gave us a rebooked connection that we had near zero chance of making."
Pros: "Bangalore airport was quick and efficient"
Cons: "Time between connections at Heathrow Terminal 5 was too short and the terminal has long distances , slow passport control and security check. Terminal 5 is rubbish."
Cons: "Landing was rough. Very rough."
Cons: "5.5 hour delay...sat on plane for 3.5 hours due to several unrelated issues...none weather related...airline did nothing for customer satisfixation (no snacks, no entertainment) hen had to deboard for 2 hours until a new plane was secured and worst part was we had a 7 hour flight plan. This flight was not operated by British Air. It was operated by American Airlines."
