I upgraded my seat to business class for $800 and then at checking at the gate charged an extra $200 for my luggage. Saw this happening to other passengers as well. Being charged extra too. I think business class should include the luggage. Another way the Swiss has their hand in your pocket. I was unhappy. Can’t leave my clothes behind!

I cannot say enough good things about Swiss. I would love to be able to fly Swiss Business again when I travel to Zürich in September 2019."
Cons: "Boarding started 20 mins late, once on board was moved to accommodate a family to sit together. No objection to them sitting together but how is it possible that they’re in that situation to begin with. Flight was overbooked so crew offering cash to delay for a later flight, which on a Sunday evening is an unappetising proposect"

Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Service was poor - several of the staff seemed to be inexperienced and not very customer service oriented. The boarding process was chaotic at the gate - customs were there to check in but quite a few people were unaware (not many announcements). Also, the Economy boarding process wasn't clear and chaotic (i.e., not by row and you also didn't know when you could board. Also, the person in front of me kept reclining her seat and it went back too far. I didn't want to do the same to the person behind me so it was quite uncomfortable."
Pros: "I take the flight from ZRH to SFO several times a year. Typically on time, typically good service, food and drinks"
Cons: "The entertainment on the Airbus 340 is outdated and the screens are terrible but that is the only problem. ugh better with the new 777. Unfortunately not the case today"
Pros: "Boarding was on time. Staff very courteous. No complaints at all"

Pros: "Comfy, loved the individual Tvs and food was great!"
Pros: "Comfortable business class seats, much better than the updated Lufthansa footsie leg rests. Attentive staff. Puzzles for the children"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Everyone was helpful."
Pros: "Great Service and flight was without problems or delays. Arrived on time ."

Cons: "The only problem with the food was it was all canceled because of rough weather."
Pros: "The plane was 2 hours late and I could not get home. Missed the connection to Greenville at 11:38. They told me there were no hotels in Atlanta and I would have to stay in the airport and then take the 8:55 am fight to Greenville. That took an hour in line and there was no help."
Cons: "The pilot was awesome. He flew as fast as he could to help anyone make their connection but it didn’t help. But I appreciate him trying. Just frustrated that being military I didn’t get to board earlier or that they didn’t help me find a way home"
Pros: "Surprisingly comfortable for such a short flight. The approach is impressive. Friendly attendants and captain kept everyone updated when there was a slight delay. Was overall a really nice flight"
Cons: "Delta put me on an aisle rather than window I am broad shouldered and got pummeled throughout the flight by passengers and crew passing by Gal next to me fell asleep on my shoulder It was ok. She was attractive. :-)"
Pros: "Crew provided first class service and were in good spirits for a very full flight. Full first class beverage service"
Cons: "No food except cookies and salty crisps in first clsss. There was ample time for a full breakfast."
Cons: "Crew did not make passenger in front of me bring his seat back up for landing."
Pros: "Friendly crew and on time flight"
Pros: "You guys did an all around great job and my flight experience was the best I’ve ever had. The quality of the service was exceptional."
Pros: "Snacks & drinks & TV movies good"
Cons: "One hostess was very rude & slow forget our headphones Kept getting me to help her with getting attention of other hostesses also very bad at giving snacks and kept my husband and another man waiting for 10 mins while she gathered rubbish despite repeated requests which would have been easy as she was at the front of plane obviously unsuited for this position"
Cons: "This was the longest part of a three flight trip back to DCA and there was no movies. This was completely unexpected, so I wasn't prepared to entertain myself for 5 very long hours. It would have been nice to have know this ahead of time so I could have brought a book with me. Early notification thru the app is the way to go."
Pros: "Despite the turbulence and delay, this was possibly the best flight I've ever been on. I have never been treated so well by a flight crew before. Also, the attendant at the gate managed to get my wife seated next to me when our seats ended up separated. Great experience!"
Cons: "Turbulence and delay was bad, but the flight crew made up for it."
Cons: "not prepared in Maintenance to fix a very small problem in an efficient timeframe. Also, this plane was very dirty ..bathroom, walls, seat rails, floors....not good Delta"

Pros: "Lisa, the flight attendant, went above and beyond to help solve a situation that occurred during the flight."

Pros: "Comfortable seats in coach Good snacks Friendly crew"
Pros: "Wi-FI available (although I didn't use it)"
Cons: "No direct flight in the morning, so had to take two connecting flights, and leave home very early in the morning."
Pros: "Free movies helped make the flight go faster. Also when possible my girlfriend and I were seated together despite having seats assigned at the gate."
Cons: "Being in zone three meant checking bags on every flight. That's a side effect of picking the cheapest tickets so not really Delta's fault but it says that I have to put something here."
Cons: "My roundtrip flights with delta were all delayed at least 2 hours. That's what you pay for for a cheap flight. There were no inclement weather and the staff didn't give a reason for the delay."
Pros: "Staff was friendly, and we got there safely"
Cons: "Really wished we had tv's like we had on our flight to SLC. It really helps with those who have anxiety to distract their minds. Wifi is expensive therefore I chose not to use it"
Pros: "I paid only $100 more round trip to DTW from SLC then I would have with other carriers, minus the hassle of connecting flights and paying fees that they don't tell you about up front (like $25 for a carry-on bag, oh and a another $12 per leg for a window seat). My experience, like my previous Delta experiences was absolutely enjoyable. From the quick boarding, super friendly gate agents, and flight crew, to the free on board entertainment, Delta has won me over once again. Oh and did I mention how great it is to board a flight, relax and watch a good movie, take a small nap, and deplane at your destination! Awesome!!"
Pros: "Quick trip and relaxing --- no high way traffic issues, accidents or construction hold ups."
Cons: "There wasn't anything I did not like."
Pros: "shorter flight"
Cons: "Entertainment system is not working."
Pros: "I liked the service. It was incredible."
Cons: "I did not like the delay or the continued delay on the runway"
Cons: "We did not board at the scheduled time, although I believe we arrived on time. The crew was demeaning and singled out individuals who were causing the aircraft to not move. It was in a very pretentious manner, not like southwest personnel who have similar antics but with a playful tone. The plane is a small one where bags don't fit overhead and many head bumps occur. We arrived fine which mean the flight was successful but it was not very enjoyable."
Cons: "Enforce your baggage size and number limits. A significant number of passengers take bags onboard that are oversized."
Cons: "Delta connect carrier not good for comfort seating and service. Would not fly them again. Would go to another airline iinstead."
Pros: "Everything was great from the check in process to the de-planing in Detroit. When we checked in at SLC the agent used my last name, which showed me the extra mile Delta staff will go to make the travel with them professional and curious. The flight left on time and when we arrived in Detroit our bags were already there waiting for us. Couldn't have asked for more!"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "The attendants on this flight were gossiping right behind us and we heard them talk about ignoring calls from people during our wait on the tarmac at LAX. Again we were in the last seats in the plane and this time it was stinky."
The check in process was disorganized. The staff were rude. Once you get on the flight, there is no entertainment on board.
Pros: "Crew was friendly, but dis not show Seating flexibility based on passengers spacing"
Cons: "Better entertainment selection"
Cons: "Boarding was slow but they had increased number of wheelchair clients. Not their fault but was a known so the process could have been started earlier."
Cons: "Delay for both leg trip."
Pros: "Great service."
Cons: "New planes have 9 sits in the rove (economy class) which affects the passengers comfort."
Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Lufthansa continuosly treats repeat customers like milk cows. The new ‘light fare’ is a genius way to charge the same as before with ZERO customer support."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and friendly."
Cons: "Food was not that good, flight was over an hour late causing us to miss our connection in Frankfurt. Consequently we were also charged for our car pickup in Prague. Overall, not impressed with Lufthansa."
Cons: "We missed our connection due to the delay and they could only rebook us on flights that made us miss an entire day or our vacation."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was perfect."
Cons: "Cannot get Lufthansa to issue miles for the flight, or for my Star Alliance flights on Swiss and United. Frankfort terminal transfer distance is very far, and too far if your flight transfer is less than 55 minutes!"
Cons: "They ran out of vegetarian options so I only could have salad, bread and butter"
Cons: "Business class had economy seats which is not what you expect especially for an overnight flight"
Cons: "The business class seats are small and the leg-room is short There is no entertainment units on this flight"
Pros: "Friendly service, actual food in economy class, just a small delay, overall a very smooth trip."
Cons: "As above, I couldn't check in online and thus couldn't choose my seat beforehand."
Cons: "I was told there was no meal included because of the fare I paid. I paid $1100.00. I have never experienced this, even on round trip cheaper flights and I fly to Europe every year."
Pros: "Staff was very pleasant , polite, and accommodating"
Cons: "No complaints except for the how long is the flight, but it’s a part of a journey"
Pros: "Seat comfort and entertainment Option for WIFI and to charge was very nice add"
Cons: "Lost our luggage"
Pros: "All good"
Pros: "The gluten free special meal was more imaginative than others I’ve had. No rice crackers wrapped in saran. Flight attendants very professional."
Cons: "Flight seemed to drag on forever, but there’s not much the airline can do about that. Seats in economy were cramped."
Pros: "We liked it all. Great flight!"
Cons: "The big layover but even that worked out well"
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants, good wine, good entertainment (which I actually don't watch), beautiful airplane, A 340, especially the downstairs restrooms."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, minimal leg room, mediocre food."
Pros: "Crew was great, boarding great, honored request for vegan meals"
Cons: "8+ hour flight is difficult with limited leg room- United is spending so much money putting Pod seating (or laying) options up front .... but Economy seats are ridiculous. Clearly we are. It that important. Row 34 window seat has a big metal box so Zero legroom"
Pros: "Flew back last weekend in February. Transfer between plane from Barcelona in Frankfort (LH hub) to flight to Boston extremely chaotic. Masses of passengers all attempting to transfer to US bound flights. Insufficient staff from both Lufthansa and German border control to process or even organize the masses of people flying that day. Mob scene at transfer points. Not up to LH usual standards. Quite surprising as their passenger volume data should have alerted them to impending problems. Our flight was delayed over an hour for takeoff so USA bound connecting passengers (whose luggage was already on the planes) could be processed."
Cons: "Chaos and disorganization. Masses of connecting passengers unable to get to their flights anywhere near planned boarding time. Takeoffs delayed substantially."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats too close together. Boarding was late and plane was full. People had to out roller boards understand seats that were too close together. Seemed very unsafe. Stuffy and hot. Terrible turbulence."
Cons: "Our flight from Tel Aviv on Lufthansa was 20 minutes late. We only had 40 minutes for our connection in Frankfort but made it to the gate 5 minutes early. The gate was closed 10 minutes early and they would not let us on. There were 17 of us, 10 of which were children. They would not let us on BUT we’re able to spend 30 extra minutes at the gate, not on the tarmac, to remove all of our luggge off the plane. It would of taken them less than 10 minutes to let us in the flight. I don’t even know what to say about the complete lack of any competence."
Pros: "From boarding to the whole in flight experience - special meal never came, paid extra for seats and wish I never did, food is terrible , luggage is lost on the way back - week later no contact! Never again"
Cons: "I would like for this airline to close down and never hurt anyone again!"
Cons: "Boarding was an unorganized free-for-all"
Pros: "Sweet crew with a lot of patience."
Cons: "The plane was full of immigrants and they left a HUGE MESS everywhere. Half eaten chocolates, wrappers, cups and you name it strewn all over the floor and aisles. It was disgusting to sit through 10.5 hours of. Somehow though, they knew how to watch Baywatch."
Pros: "Made tight connection. Slept entire trip"
Pros: "Lufthansa makes coach travel tolerable. Blankets, pillows, free access to on board entertainment and a large selection of real food, not just snacks, and beverages. All beverages available the entire flight. Plane was clean and everything in working order."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Very courteous service, clearly a step above other airlines"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the boarding process was fast and simple. No food just snacks and what they had was good. Once I got to the airport there was a wheelchair at the gate and it was great because we were on the opposite side if the airport for our next flight and he was very nice to talk to as we were walking."
Cons: "It was a pretty short flight so no complaints."
Pros: "The most comfortable trip"
Pros: "Again lufthansa crew one of the best out there thank you"
Cons: "No entertainment but I understand why short flight"
Cons: "We never flew out !! We're still at the airport! Please help us! We have to be in Spain by Saturday"
Pros: "IT WAS A COMPLETE FRAUD !"
Cons: "MY TIME IS TOO EXPENSIVE to use time to explain"
Cons: "The delay after boarding in Lisbon"
Pros: "nothing to say - low cost carrier level"

Pros: "The caring of the air hostesses"
Cons: "The space was very limited"
Pros: "Everything was amazing Very pleased!"
Cons: "Good choice entertainment but system is slow to respond and crashed on a few occasions"
Pros: "Cleanliness of the plane, brand new plane, delicious food, real silverware, Plesant crew, love the entertainment"
Cons: "Chaos when getting in the plane. First come first serve which could lead to problems. Everyone wants to get in the plane at once"
Cons: "Checking in in Tel Aviv was the worst experience I have had in checking in. The ladies just sat there, explained almost nothing, gave no eye contact. Finally, they told me the flight was overbooked and that was why I was waiitng. They offered nothing else--as if I had done something wrong (the impression they gave me), rather than Lufthansa. I waited a full 1 1/2 hours. No other explanation. At the very end, when they finally put me on a flight, they chastised me for not checking in online---this was NEVER offered to me by Lufthansa on my flight there or on the return. With other airlines they always send me an email to check in online ahead of time. Lufthansa did not. I could not have been more disappointed with this checking in experience with Lufthansa. Again, the worst in my life and would be cause for me not to recommend Lufthansa to others. Otherwise, the flight itself and the actual crew were great. So disappointing to have such an unprofessional check in experience."
Pros: "I always try to fly LH, but do so only if there is a deal available. This time I was especially impressed with the ground crew service in Frankfurt who offered assistance that I would have been too self-conscious to solicit, and it made all the difference."
Cons: "Patronizing crew."
Pros: "Much more space in economy than United. Their entertainment system is high quality, made the flight enjoyable and fast."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Checkin was timely and the agent helpful!"
Cons: "The immigration line was way too long in New Delhi."
Pros: "Landed on time"
Cons: "Took 2.5 hours to even get water from the crew. Food was disturbingly bad (hot goo). Service was unbelievably slow. I've never seen something like this on a major airline. Shocked and disappointed."
Listening covid restrictions and following them is completely nonsense. Avoid touching others? How when plane is full and everybody who pass around touchs me. Keep distance?? How???? Avoid walking in the plane but also wash your hands regularly with soap and water? How? I should avoid walking but at the same time you want me to wash hand regularly? It means i have to walk up and down. What is regularly for you? Every 15mins? Every hour? Every day? It is so stupid what you are telling that my brain stops to work.
They canceled our flights but the flight went on anyway.
Pros: "Crew was great, on time flight, clean plane."
Cons: "Entertainments options were shockingly few. Honestly have not been on a plane recently with so few and limited options of TV series and movies. I was extremely surprised. Wish I had know and I would’ve had more options for my family."
Pros: "The crew were great! The seats are not that comfortable, it happened that I had 3 seats raw for myself but the armrests were not going up so I could not utilize them and lie down to sleep."
Pros: "This Transavia Airlines is not good at all."
Cons: "Many things cheaper does mean better."
Pros: "Due to business I travel allot so I deal with allot of airlines. This is by far the best airlines I have used. Excellent crew and airport staff. I don’t think words can express how satisfied I am with this airlines and airport. The nicest people and great service. Clean and modern aircraft. Going to try flying only with KLM from now on."

Cons: "Window did not darken like the others."
Pros: "The crew was professional & friendly"
Cons: "Food was terrible honestly, entertainment system didn't work on 1st flight."

Cons: "Fix the damn KIOSKS at Vienna!"
Pros: "Slow service."
Cons: "Better communication!"
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"

Cons: "Staff rude and short"
Pros: "The friendliness of the crew"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Passenger who needed wheelchair assistance it took KLM 50 minutes to get him off plane which delayed our boarding. KLM not prepared to handle passengers with needs"
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: "quick/efficient boarding - good staff - good food - easy flight !"
Cons: "the connecting times for klm seem to be very close - if your running late to start - you may not make your next one -"
Pros: "Crew was amazing, seats were comfortable with enough leg space even without choosing extra space seats. It was my childhood dream come true to fly with KLM. It was really an exciting trip for me, just that it was short."

Pros: "The flight was very good, specially considering it was a daylight one. Staff was friendly and servicial. Tue food was above the industry's average."
Cons: "old plane, tight and uncomfortable"
Cons: "Per usual, KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Strange choice of in-flight movies; no accounting for taste, I guess."
Cons: "Not only was there free food but they tried to sell you a bunch of stuff. Not a moments piece."
Pros: "It was so easy to board and I had no inconvenience. It took 4 minutes from when I said goodbye to my family till when I was at the front of the gate."
Cons: "Nothing! It was all great!"
Cons: "They didn’t let us board the plane. Allegedly the plane was changed and make us travel by train!! They offered us a compensation but we haven’t heard from them yet. Not good experience at all."
Cons: "Departure 40 mins late. I took this flight 2 weeks ago and it was also delayed."
Pros: "Very efficient boarding, fast and professional but warm and friendly. The plane was very clean and quite spacious for a two by two configuration. On time departure and landing and smoothed processing at the other end."
Cons: "Nothing to improve"
Pros: "Everything was good. The crew was very friendly and attentive. The plane was comfortable, with great entertainment on the personal screens. The food was delicious. Flight was on time and actually arrived early, but then we had to wait for a gate (not the airline's fault)."

Cons: "Too much overoverhead luggage."
Pros: "Quick and efficient flight. Crew very organized. Great language skills"
This flight was a bit of a let down compared to our departing flight. The food was pretty bad, I couldn't even cut the meat. But the thing that made this less enjoyable was the terrible check-in process. We waited over 70 minutes to check in for Business class. Numerous people almost missed their flight, which made the line even longer. I've never waiting in a standard line that long to check-in, so to experience it for Business class was disappointing at best. Also, the flight attendants weren't as friendly as the ones on our flight to London. One of them with dark hair was great, but the other 2 were grumpy and seemed irritable most of the flight. The experience was quite different from our flight from SEA to LHR, so it was a bummer to end the trip on a mediocre note--especially with the cost of these tickets.
Vegan food for my daughter was great ! Finnair and the country of Finland are vegan friendly!!! Way to go! Thank you
Cons: "The passenger sitting next to me smelled REALLY bad. Like he hadn't washed himself in weeks. Other passengers around me got a whiff too and also reacted the same. I asked the main crew member from my aisle for a seat change but he came back 10 mins later saying there was nothing else available. Later when I was walking around to stretch my legs, I saw there were AT LEAST 10 seats open in the next cabin. Why lie? The entertainment system touch-screen was not working properly and the headphones kept falling out of my ear."
Cons: "Service very cold and rare to find. For some reason finnair doesn’t announce boarding"
Pros: "Loved the wine hour, location, access to bikes and lovely breakfast buffet! Service was super friendly, too."
Cons: "I hate paying for water but I seem to do this all over town."
Pros: "The connection was way too tight."
Cons: "Hel-LAX flight was ok. LAX and connecting flight were bad, slow and delayed frequently."
Cons: "Boarding process could have been smoother"
Pros: "A350, smooth and quiet. Nice plane"
Cons: "Seats in business are a little crowded and close together. opening to get in and out of seat is minimal"
Cons: "Very long delay, got bumped for a flight the next day. Horrible experience"
Cons: "My headphones didn’t work"
Pros: "I got an extra blanket."
Cons: "We waited on the runaway for 3 hours without any service, not a sip of water. When I finally arrived in Helsinki, I missed my connection to Riga and was rescheduled for a flight 6 hours later even though there were two flights leaving before then. Also I requested vegetarian meal online, but was not served vegetarian. They did not have any extras."
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."
Cons: "I hurt my knee. The legroom is too small."
Pros: "The flight did eventually take off, unlike a few others leaving around the same time."
Cons: "We were delayed several hours and were never told why. Mostly there were no Aeroflot staff at the gate to ask. When there was, they said they couldn't help us because our flight was a codeshare with FinnAir. At the last minute they switched gates, sending us all scurrying."
Pros: "excellent service, loads of attention, good gluten free food choices with a finnish twist"
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 food provided under gluten-free food"
Cons: "Nice flight, nice crew"
Cons: "I could not be given the boarding pass fir the last leg of my trip"
Pros: "I flew in economy. 9+ hours from ORD to HEL. The seat was average size. We were provided with a pillow, blanket and headphones. I did not use the in-flight entertainment, which was on an LCD screen. It was warm, so i didn't use the blanket. I also brought a neck-pillow, which is vital on overnight flights. They served a full dinner shortly after takeoff: I had meat lasagna which wasn't that bad, along with corn, a roll w/ butter, two saltine crackers with decent cheese and a chocolate pudding. Upon waking, I ate the breakfast, which was scrambled eggs and two sausages and a roasted tomato, a roll with butter, fruit cup and orange juice, coffee on the side. All pretty good, it was nice to have a meal before deplaning in Helsinki and waiting to get through passport control. Attendants on this flight were quite friendly. Check-in was run very efficiently. No problems with luggage. All in all, a real bargain price, and I got more than I bargained for."
Cons: "As for the downside, I had no significant disappointments on the long leg of my flight on Finnair. I hope my return flights will be just as good."
Pros: "I loved the colors of the flight.light blue and green. Gave a peaceful ambience. The flight attendants were very courteous and smiling. Especially the women flight attendants. The food was excellent. It was interesting that the flight from Helsinki to Chicago served a Indian style dinner comprising of lentils, rice and chickpeas. I liked that too, though I prefer the meditarranean fare. I liked the boarding as they were very strict about families with children and gave them priority before other passengers."
Cons: "I did not find too many indian films which I would have liked, especially in a flight because Indian movies are 3 hours long and help to pass the time quickly :). I would have liked more variety in the Hollywood movies as well. They mostly had much older films and hardly any of the new releases while Emirates flight had lot many more new releases and oscar winning movies. They served the Indian amul cheese which is not worthy of serving on a flight, and they could have served some better cheese."
Cons: "You have canceled my flight and you have just sent me an email."
Cons: "Crew wasn't attentive. Seats were small."
Pros: "The Finnair representatives at the airport were incredibly nice and helpful."
Cons: "I never made it on the flight because I booked through airfare.com which gives no warning or notices that passports need to be valid for three months after a flight to France. I ended up spending hours on the phone with them constantly being yelled at by their customer service reps."
Pros: "We had a very reasonable fare that included two meals a glass of wine and movies. We weren't expecting any thing more than a plane ride. Thank you FinnAir."
Cons: "Seats were too closely spaced. Like a coffin. Will probably not fly Finnair unless the price is next to nothing."
Pros: "Clean, well-designed, individual screens with numerous good movie choices. They came through on our special meals, friendly flight attendants. Also loved Helsinki airport. Not crowded, nice staff. Good food choices. Even passport control was friendly and there was no line."
Cons: "Connecting through Helsinki added hours to our travel time, but after flying American nonstop JFK to Paris on way over, may be worth it. American flight didn't even have individuals screens and blankets left fuzz all over my clothing."
Pros: "Finnair was tolerable for a 1.5 hours flight. I tried blueberry juice for the first time and quite liked it. There was no food on this flight."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about for the short leg."
Pros: "Great service, great food, and comfortable seats."
Pros: "Sorry I like the price ...."
Cons: "There was no food the stewadress we're not so kind the did not give a over only after begging them and I do not like the flight time. I like the save try very much and this is important"
Pros: "The crew was great! Very friendly, very accommodating!! It was a great flight overall!"
Cons: "No room on flight ran out of wine and food before getting to the back 1/3 of plane where I was sitting I can say one of the worst travel flights I've ever had"
Pros: "Pleasant staff and crew."
Cons: "Tv screens are old and function very poorly."
Cons: "Very old plane, seats did not have personal entertainment systems"
Pros: "The Movies"
Cons: "The stewardess could have been nicer. Very rushed, they were polite but just rushed! Also the lack of CLEAR English speaking crew!!!"
Pros: "Flight was not super crowded. Crew were lovely."
Cons: "No seat back entertainment...had to endure The Charlie Brown movie, Nelson Mandela biopic and lousy boxing movie. Seats extremely small...would have been awful if plane was at full capacity. Plane very dated...no frills"
Pros: "Everything good except getting bag after flight."
Cons: "Took over an hour at baggage claim."
Pros: "on time friendly staff"
Cons: "more food choices"
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: "Everything was good ,plane was on time,food was good for Airline food and was clean."
Cons: "The crew was pleasant but they needed to smile more . Other than that everything was good."
Pros: "For the first time ever I had a flight on British Airways where I did not feel like I wanted to choke somebody at the end of the flight - so I was pleasantly surprised at this particular BA flight."
Cons: "BA gates in NYC are abysmal - the entire terminal is... Why are the restaurants advertising being open to some specific time (well prior to the departure of this flight) yet then have staff holler at you that they are closed when you try to go in well before that time. It would have been very nice to have been able to sit down and have some dinner prior to the flight, but the rudeness of both of the two restaurants and their staff was worthy of the notoriety of NYC attitudes (which I don't generally see in mainstream NYC society)."
Pros: "Everything was good, cozy airplane, tasty food"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Miserable, ancient entertainment system that had to be restarted 3 times"
Pros: "Brilliant direct flight"
Cons: "The cost could be a lot cheaper"
Pros: "On time arrival."
Cons: "Nothing really. Short flight so no entertainment."
Pros: "Food was better than flight to London. Boarding went well."
Cons: "Plane left almost an hour late with no explanation given. For huge plane, still cramped unless you pay loads for more room. Upgrade prices outlandish!!!"
Cons: "The movies shown were not great and there were no TV screens in the headrests. Also, you have to pay for soda. Only coffee, tea, and blueberry juice is complementary. Our bags were also lost on this flight, or never made the connection from our previous flight."
Pros: "About the only positive was that the plane left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "Checking luggage was a nightmare. I stood well over an hour in line. We barely made the flight, and afterwards our luggage was lost, and it still has not been found. The wheelchair that I had ordered for my travelling companion was not there, either at Manchester or Philadelphia. The seats that I had reserved were given away to someone else. Whilst the plane flight itself was okay, the airport experiences on either end were miserable."
