Both Heathrow and Gatwick have excellent facilities for families and children. Heathrow’s Stay & Play is available in Terminals 2, 3, 4 and 5 and features slides, play spots, and separate areas for babies and young children. At Gatwick, there are Kids zones in both the North and South Terminals, both of which provide play areas and free TV for young travelers.
Heathrow has bookable meeting rooms such as its Regus Express business lounge, which can be rented by the hour. Along with their premium lounges, business travelers can also rent cell phones and order money in advance so that, whichever foreign currency you need, it will be waiting for you upon arrival.
London City Airport is the closest in terms of physical proximity to the downtown area. It can be reached via the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) and by city buses. However, most of its flights are short hauls to mainland Europe. If your flight to London originated across the Atlantic, chances are that Heathrow is the best airport option for quick access to the city.
Heathrow has an expansive restaurant selection from fine dining to quick bites, and you can even order your food in advance from participating restaurants via the Heathrow app. Furthermore, many restaurants in Heathrow offer 15-minute menus, as they know every minute counts during your travels.
Pros: Very personable
Cons: Delay in Madrid -
Pros: Delay of 1 hour, but flight was good!
Pros: Tus crew
Pros: The crew was nice.
Cons: There was a terrible stench, like that of a dead animal, near where we sat that did not let us enjoy the flight. The seats were too crowded.
Cons: more comfortable seats and space, better food
Cons: Don't have dinner. I must payed for eat something. The seats are very small. Is uncomfortable. Never more I Will fly with this Air company.
Cons: All around pleasant experience
Pros: Easy flight, on time, polite and informative crew
Cons: It was pretty standard— very functional, which is what we expected
Pros: Efficient, quick, well organized
Cons: Nothing really
Pros: The roomie seats, the USB port, and in flight entertainment
Cons: Child free section
Pros: Crew was attentive.
Cons: Tiny, uncomfortable seats with warn cushions.
Pros: The food was good. The lane was comfortable
Cons: The flight was nearly full, and the 767 is a large aircraft. I think it would be preferable if Virgin Atlantic would board the plane by zones, similar to other airlines.
Cons: Nobody was sat in the overwing emergency exit row seats for the whole flight (so nobody had been briefed on how to use them) and the tray tables for these seats were down during the flight effectively blocking the emergency exit in the event of an emergency. Potentially very dangerous
Cons: Media screens are old and miscalibrated. Selection was decent. Food is probably average for the industry which to me is worse than fast food.
Pros: Someone in the boarding area called this airline "cheap and cheerful" but that doesn't convey the fact that it's the 787 Boeing plane with roomy seats. And the flight attendants--of which there are many--are cheerful!
Cons: DY 7016 was scheduled to leave JFK on January 7th at 10 PM. We took off at 4 AM. This is unacceptable.
Pros: new planes, clean, easy boarding.
Cons: For the price, everything was great.
Cons: Seats too small in economy
Cons: One of the worst experiences I have ever had at checkin and boarding. Waited over 2 hours to get to the gate (luckily got there early), very rude staff at checkin.
Cons: They are very sneaky and try to make you check carryon bags - for $120. Will never fly w them again.
Pros: On time flight, good service
Cons: Long wait for deposit luggage . Food could be much better.
Cons: The flight wad late becsuse of the immigration.
Cons: Do not sell flight you are not able to manage. Shame
Pros: Crew and on time flight
Cons: The food could have been a a bit better.
Cons: Seven hours before my flight, I got an email from British Airways saying my flight was cancelled and I had been rebooked on a flight the next day. I called them immediately and was told the flight was cancelled because of inclement weather on the route. I checked the national weather advisory and saw no such weather alert. The service rep at BA told me there was "absolutely nothing" she could do, at which point I asked for a manager. I waited for almost 30 minutes, and once the manager came on I was put on a flight that same night, on a different airline. If I hadn't pushed back and demanded a more reasonable accommodation, they would have done nothing to right their wrong. For this reason I am extremely unhappy with my experience with British Airways.
Pros: Boarding process was very quick.
Cons: Some sort of entertainment. There was nothing.
Pros: Got from one place to another
Cons: Seats are terrible, no entertainment, and high expenses even for soda! Since when is BA in a race to the bottom with all of the other terrible airlines?!
Cons: Missing one suitcase and it will be delivered a day late supposedly
Cons: Overbooked, no room for carry-on luggage
Cons: The flight and its crew did well but I will NEVER use it again if it has to transit in Brussels. We were bussed to the T terminal ( ‘incidentally’ where were all the AFRICAN flights transit) were we had a 5 hour layover, which is fine with me, but the terminal has no restaurant or any decent stores.
Pros: vegetarian dish was OK.
Cons: entertainment was very poor. very limited selection of movies and tv shows.
Pros: The crew was amazing. Brand new airplane and service was excellent. Bathrooms were kept clean.
Pros: My seat
Cons: My suitcase wasn’t in the plane. 8 hours in the plane and no one offered us water. We had to look for flight attendant. Entertainment wasn’t great not too many choices and quality of screens was poor
Pros: Good for both.
Cons: Bigger seats.
Pros: Crew was very engaging and service was good.
Cons: My seat was horrible. Right at the door, crammed, and no place to store my carry-on luggage.
Pros: Friendly crew
Cons: KLM lost one piece of my luggage
Pros: Crew was amazing. They adjusted the seating arrangements so there was an empty seat in every row to give passengers more space. Very thoughtful and much appreciated. They served delicious meals, snacks, and water. They provided headphones, blankets and pillows. They took very good care of us.
Pros: Crew was very friendly and seat in KQ is super comfortable in Business.
Pros: The cue lines per zone are the most brilliant idea!
Cons: After boarding began there was a backup after the gate en route to the plane. No explanation. The plane left an hour later than scheduled but seemed to arrive close to scheduled time.
Pros: Crew was nice.
Cons: Food could be better, or at least be provided an option to purchase an upgraded meal. Also, insufficient amount of drinking water provided to passengers.
Pros: The crew was pleasant and boarding efficient I lucked out with first class
Pros: Seat 4 A. The flight attendant working first class was very attent
Cons: Delayed 2 hours, huge inconvenience
Pros: Customer service on the phone.
Cons: Delays all day on delta. On my way out and on the return flight.
Cons: Flight was delayed due to crew not being available.
Cons: The Delta flight leaving Cleveland was a hour and a half late so we could not make our connection to get home and had to overnight in Minneapolis. This is the fourth time in six flights For Delta. I think the Kayak booking algorithm needs to allow more time between connecting flights.
Cons: Small space in middle seat
Pros: crew helpful
Cons: 1. Boarding gate changed 3 times..... poor advertising regarding the last change 2. food poor 3. entertainment non-existent
Cons: The food was so cheap... pasta and a muffin. I’ll be looking around for another airline.
Pros: Rude inconsiderate staff. Terrible plane
Cons: They lost our bags, twice! We had 4 pieces of luggage that were checked together. They flew out of the same airport we did. They lost 3 out of the 4 bags, but assured me all 3 were on the very next flight. The next flight came in but only 2 more had been put on that flight. Still waiting on 4th...
Pros: We didn’t crash.
Cons: Continue not to crash. Thank you.
Pros: Good legroom,
Cons: Older aircraft, tray tables not level, rear washrooms no water, delayed departure
Pros: quiet plane
Cons: 2.5 hours delayed flight without prompt notifications. Honest and prompt flight-delay alerts. Updates for delay came *every* half-hour. No opportunity to schedule ANYTHING based truthful delay estimations and the lack of timely communication.
Cons: No delays
Cons: Air Canada only offered drinks during the flight. If you do not have a credit card with you, you can not eat anything. the flight was 4 hours and 45 minutes but there was a problem, this detour was an additional 2 hours and 30 We were a total of almost 7 hours inside the plane and without eating any
Cons: I could have used USB charging station.
Pros: Good entertainment options
Cons: two of the three phone charge ports were not working I think the passenger seating areas may not have been deep cleaned
Cons: Just except very bad to reserve 24h before by phone impossible to have the number call call geneve airport it was ile fidji a d south pacifica impossible to understand i speak french andlittle english perfortunatly my kids live princetona d boston Thank.you merci yvette ruggeri
Cons: Flight was cancelled. I was rebooked on different flight, arriving in total 6 hours later than planned. My train connection was not valid, and I hhad to buy another ticket.
Pros: Seats super comfy
Pros: Quick boarding and deplaning process
Cons: Offer free wifi instead of charging.
Pros: Food and crew were good
Cons: Our plane left late which equalled missing our connecting flight which equalled almost missing our window to pick up our car rental. Timely boarding and accommodation/coordination with connecting flight could have been handled better
Pros: The crew was amazing and also the space of my seat
Cons: Wish they have a portable TV in my seat
Cons: It sucked in many ways. But that wasn't united's fault. The weather was threatening lightning in Denver and of course because of that the world stops turning.
Pros: Nice crew
Cons: Not let babies on planes
Pros: The attention of the flight attendents. And tht We were on time.
Pros: The customer service representatives are very apologetic and helpful.
Cons: Lack of punctuality. For any flight through British Airways, do not expect to be on time. Both flights were delayed; significantly so that the group I was with ended up missing the connecting flight (that shockingly left on time)
Cons: The food needs some improvement!
Pros: Had a line of seats to stretch out
Cons: Food was not good, coffee terrible
Pros: The entertainment options are good, the food is good and the aircraft was clean with plenty of plugs for mobile devices.
Cons: The boarding process was chaotic. Also other than checking boarding passes airline staff don’t help people find their seats or get settled.
Pros: The roomie seats, the USB port, and in flight entertainment
Cons: Child free section
Pros: A safe crossing over the Atlantic!
Cons: I queued at the Virgin Atlantic departure desk only to be told I had to walk to another terminal (the farthest one away) to queue for Delta Airlines. There was no mention of this on my e-ticket. Had I been elderly or unwell I would have been very upset. Delta is really the poor relation and does not even begin to compare to the journey I had to Boston on Virgin which was fantastic. Very disappointing but I was delighted to get to Heathrow safely.
Cons: There is no entertainment, not really required on a short flight but nice when offered.
Cons: They have to uptade the airplanes
Pros: The flight itself was good! The one from London to Delhi was better than from JFK to London
Cons: I wasn’t told about my baggage were being delivered through different airlines the other day!
Pros: The space at my feet with the chair in front was a bit akward.
Cons: Not being seated next to small kids. Perhaps they should have a separate section? ;-)
Cons: We were allowed to choose our seats from SFO to Amsterdam but not for the return flight. I like to be able to choise my seats when I book the flight. Choosing seats 24 hours before is not convenient when traveling for the return trip.
Pros: Food, entertainment and crew was exceptionally friendly.
Cons: Seats not great for such a long flight.
Pros: Great crew, comfortable seating with enough leg room.
Cons: Provide dinner before getting to joburg, instead of a snack. Flight arrives late so dinner would be appreciated
Pros: Seat comfortable
Cons: Flight was delayed and overhead bin space was very small
Pros: friendly crew
Cons: more leg room
Pros: not enough leg room. Tray too small.
Cons: the above
Pros: It was cheap
Cons: Flight was late, boarding and unloading was slow so I missed my connection to LA.
Cons: The food
Pros: The food, the crew, the entertainment.
Cons: It was an excellent flight!
Cons: Team desn’t have much Client focus, seems to have more experience with cargo shipments
Cons: All good
Cons: The Austrian airlines website is absolutely the worst and least user friendly that I've seen for an airline. I tried paying for my bags and it rejected half of the itinerary's bookings for no reason. It took a ton of clicks to get stuff done and I kept getting errors. Very limited movie selection.
Cons: The 34 minute flight was delayed by almost 2 hours.
Pros: Everything was just right.
Cons: I absolutely hate traveling on this airline and with all the hidden charges realize that they are NOT as budget as one would expect. In this day and age how can one human being pass food or beverage under your nose to the passenger sitting next to you and not have the common courtesy to inquire if you are hungry? It seems odd to serve the "haves" while the "have nots" look on in hunger, the latter group even including children. Surely the better business model and or approach would be an inclusive one. When comparing the additional costs to travel its is far cheaper to take an option whereby luggage and food are included and you are not charged ridiculous amounts for, lets face it microwave meals. The PR for this company is misleading as it does not let the consumer know that this a LOW LOW budget airline and that traditional allowances on long haul flights have been totally obliterated!!!! I have travelled with Norwegian Airlines a total of 3 return flights and have finally had enough, they are an only option at times otherwise the extra 100 dollars for another airline is a pleasure to pay.
Pros: Comfortable seats (787), more-or-less on-time service.
Cons: Probably the unhappiest check-in and flight crew I've flown with. Makes me wonder what Norwegian does to its employees. Be advised that they weigh your carry-on bags, and you may be forced to check them. Basically, add $60 to your ticket price to account for round trip bag fees.
Cons: Kiwi.com said in ALL their communications that the weight limit for carry on luggage was 7 kilograms, even though Norwegian air's website said the limit was a much more reasonable (but still skimpy) 10 kilograms. When we got to the airport, they confirmed it was 10 kg.
Pros: Very very nice crew on Check in San Francisco.
Cons: Some spiritual movies available on the plane
Pros: The seat was comfortable. Left late but arrived on time.
Cons: Booked through a service so didn't know no food or water free on a trans-Atlantic flight. Flight "boarded" 1.5 hrs before the take-off time. We were connecting, so rushed to the gate without food or water. Then just sat in a locked area. Only sandwich available on flight--7 Euros. Water was 3E.
