Cons: "Only problem was I couldn't get connected to the wi-GI."

Pros: "That I made it to Dublin"
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to aircraft issues making us 2 hours late for vacation. THIS IS MY HARD EARNED MONEY! I literally put blood, sweat and many many tears into this trip. The flight attendant was so rude on this trip. It was like she was absolutely offended by my presence. I barely even spoke to her except to make sure of my vegetarian tray to which I got the nasty reply "You'll have to wait because I don't have it with me now". If I wasn't so focused on sleeping as much as I could I would have written her name down. No complimentary cocktails for Preferred Seating? Seriously? What did I upgrade for exactly? Literally four inches of space? Late, rude, money sucking industry who holds no accountability for wrong doings. Don't get into the Health Industry.. you'll kill people with this flippant attitude. Bleh.. I doubt I'll fly with Delta again. The thought of having to do so turns my stomach."

Cons: "The ground crew (in Detroit) were unfriendly and rude. I asked two simply which line I should be in, the First lady just ignored me, the second gentleman rudely told me where to stand. They were not terribly busy at the time and I politely asked as I was unsure which line to be in. The flight attendants (only from ORF to Detroit) also were unfriendly with an attitude. Just simple stuff. I asked for extra ice, she thought I said no ice. Simple mistake, no big deal but when I explained that I actually wanted extra ice she was perturbed!"

Pros: "best take off and landing I’ve ever experienced. 2 meals for an 8 hour flight and all the red wine I could drink!"

Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."

Seats in front of toilet cluster lit up every time door was opened. Crew were slow to react. Wasn't a priority. Ruined the excellent first leg of had from Philadelphia to Frankfurt.

I flew in this route a month before, and since then I've been trying to change the seats. Lufthansa customer service never called me back. When I tried to call, I was put on hold for more than an hour every time. Never flying Lufthansa again."

Cons: "No reading light that I could control."

Pros: "Great individual attention."
Cons: "Lufthanza is still "rule bound" and somewhat inflexible. Staff had some trouble adjusting to individual request (e.g. one passenger changed her mind on the meal choice and confused the staff member who tried to force the food choice on this older lady). Obviously, dealing with elderly is not the same as dealing with young - this may require some additional training of staff members.On another occasion, two passengers exchanged seats - and it took some time for staff to sort this out at the meal time. A "Muslim meal" was offered to a christian passenger. - The interchange was hilarious."

Cons: "Without having any real complains I felt the crew could of been more attentive and welcoming."

Cons: "same issues with the seats, not very comfortable, not all crew members are polite"

Pros: "Nothing about vayama."

Pros: "The attendant who did help was fantastic! The ride was smooth."
Cons: "My 12 year-old had a screen that was not working and finally we got an attendant to help us out. But until then, I had attendants who were telling us to try things and then they'd leave and not come back to check up and follow through, which left us constantly trying to find someone...one time our call light was on for 20 minutes before anyone attended to us. In addition, the bathrooms were very dirty. The breakfast was a really bad muffin that I couldn't eat."

Pros: "The flight was on time, staff attentive and made frequent rounds. The food was good and entertainment with a fair selection of options."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the day of my travel Lufthansa had a ongoing strike at the Frankfurt airport. The Lufthansa terminal was closed, luckily I was one of the few to get the bus shuttle. Once I arrived at the correct terminal the check in process and boarding was a pleasure, much friendly and competent staff to assist"

Cons: "Really hard to get boarding passes online"

Cons: "Boarding clusterf..."

Cons: "Surprised one flight that from what it looked to be, once flight took off a older couple came out of the cockpit are and took a seat in business class.

Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable"

Cons: "Thanks"

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "The only thing that I like about the flight was that it was easy to boarding"
Cons: "The food was not heat correctly it was cold and I felt that the crew rush to give out the food. The seats are terrible, if the person in front of you reclines you won’t be able to see the screen if your watching a movie and you will see the top of the persons head."

Cons: "Not enough leg room."

Pros: "More experienced, professional crew, better food and service."

Pros: "Personnel"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Very good male crew member. Pilot genuinely apologetic for the delay."
Cons: "After running due to a 1 hr 10 min change over between flights boarding didn't prioritise anyone but I got on fine. Only to be told at the departure time that there was a problem with the baggage hold and we were delayed. In total 50 minutes late leaving. Breakfast a simple brioche with nothing to add to it."

Pros: "nice drink selection on board flights"
Cons: "My pregnant wife was downgraded from business to economy 20 minutes before departure because the airline made a mistake with the reservation for our puppy traveling in the cabin with us. If this were not enough, the airline also lost one of our bags so this week we have to file for compensation for both begin downgraded and for the contents of our 30 kilo bag which never made it to Ho Chi Minh. Air France was a complete and total disaster and I would strongly recommend all friends and colleagues to find alternative airlines for travel"

Pros: "The airplane was modern, and the crew very good. Nice, service oriented and in general trying to make the flight experience as good as possible."
Cons: "The flight was very late. I lost my connection. My bag was lost and unable to recover it so far (after more than 24 hours). About to initiate the next leg of the trip with no clothes or any idea if my luggage will be recovered."

Pros: "The crew was super friendly and always gave the feeling that they want the customers to feel comfortable and enjoy the flight. One of the crew members even offered me to move to an emergency exit seat (without me asking to move) because I am tall. Amazing!"

Pros: "Food and service was good and price was acceptable"
Cons: "Very long route"

Cons: "The 3 hours delay"

Pros: "Although we departed late from Paris, it arrived on time to Mexico City. Most of the stewardess very professional and kind."
Cons: "Although we traveled in Business, all business cabins were full of children, tired crying, walking around. My suggestion to AIR France would be that the small cabin of business were assigned to adults only. Regarding food, some options were not available when our turn came."

Pros: "Punctual, not crowded."
Cons: "Even though the plane was far from full, passengers were allowed only 1 carry-on item (no personal item), contrary to policy published online by Air France. This policy applied even to people with Economy Premium for the rest of the trip (which allows 2 carry-on suitcases, not a useful feature if one cannot begin with this number to reach the transoceanic flight)."

Pros: "None"
Cons: "The airlines didn’t even notify the passengers with the connecting flight. As the arrival was little late, all the passengers have missed their connection flights in Toronto and there was no notification or communication made on the new flight. When I went to the Air France counter in the airport, the staff has gone for the day and trying to get a hold of telephone rep took 2-3 hours and I by the time I found about my new connection, I was already late. Somehow I managed to get to the Terminal 1 and when I spoke to the lady (indian) at the Check-In counter, she has refused me to Check-In because i slipped the line up. The people in the lineup didn’t have any objection and they let me go first for Check-In as I’m already late to my flight. I wante to say something to her, but I’ve controlled my frustration. Luckily the other person in the Check-In counter offered to help me Check-In. Here is my word to the Indian lady staff “F**k You B***h” - learn some people skills."

Pros: "Good boarding procedure."
Cons: "Nothing much to add for a short journey."

Pros: "Boarding and punctuality."
Cons: "Lagos boarding with rather annoying wait due to repeat hand check. Perhaps added security carried far."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "We ordered a vegetarian meal. However, the vegetarian option offered to those who did not order a special meal looked better than the vegetarian option that we received."

Cons: "Long delay during connection at CDG Unclear information about delay Repeated changes to boarding time Unable to take stroller during connection Had to go through security again at CDG, although same terminal (2E)"

Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Cattle car accommodations"

Pros: "Late, not enough legroom, smell from the toilet. Tiny TV screen, malfunctioning electronics, poorly maintained seats. Friendly crew! They looked tired, but they were still smiling while trying to keep passengers happy."

Pros: "No delays, service with a smile"
Cons: "Nothing to report."

Pros: "The Crew was the only thing that stuck out. Associates had Way more patience than i."
Cons: "Late takeoff, priority seating happens same time as general boarding, two pieces of lost luggage"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and polite, both beverages and an excellent lunch was offered."
Cons: "A delay was not ideal but nothing to worry about since the flight arrived on time."

Pros: "Nice Flight Attendants Good Food"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1.5 hours"

Pros: "I am a 70 year old woman with reduced mobility. The flight attendants made sure that I was given an aisle seat and they helped me find a seat with two empty ones next to me. The crew could not have been kinder."
Cons: "There is nothing I did not like."

Pros: "Somewhat"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "The airplane was really old."

Pros: "The food. Crew was ok"
Cons: "This is basically a southwest plain with a curtain to separate classes. No entertainment, no first class seats, no WiFi. Just a seat between us. No legroom. Y’all should be ashamed to call that first class. Waste of $"

Pros: "Crew very helpful"
Cons: "Delay leaving Heathrow because of cargo loading and equipment blocking our pushback. Better coordination of ground activities is needed."

Cons: "Flight left late from London."

Pros: "The planes departed and landed on time."
Cons: "My bag remained in London during flight change.Have direct flights to avoid such cases."

Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly."
Cons: "The entertainment equipment needs to be updated. And the seats arrangements are not the best in term of privacy."

Cons: "It started over an hour late and they lost my luggage"

Cons: "Getting through customs in UK and getting luggage tags to Dublin was a nightmare. Took over 2 hours, went through 4 lines to get luggage tags and given misinformation. Poorest travel experience in 40 years of traveling. Brits need to learn how to expedite processing."

Pros: "British Airways sets the standard for great customer service...even in economy. Great food, helpful cabin crew, and help available everywhere."

Pros: "The overall flight experience was positive."
Cons: "Our tickets were suspended before our flight to Nairobi. We can’t understand why BA would do this?"

Pros: "Cabin crew."
Cons: "Food service painfully slow."

Pros: "Landing and disembarking"
Cons: "Paying $275 to upgrade and experiencing one of worst flights and service I’ve travelled. No water supply for hot beverages, wash hands or brush teeth during eight hour international flight, not given special diet meal requested as crew unable to locate it, Entertainment monitor not working or housed in seat back correctly to adjust angle, remote handset buttons barely working to watch or make selections, unable to call cabin crew who did not visit through cabin for approximately two and half hours as ‘assumed most passengers were sleeping’, no wine choice only Sauvignon blanc and I wanted Chardonnay so had nothing. Breakfast ‘special diet request’ meal was cold hard bagel with colourful lump of cream cheese, which seemed to be what everyone else had. No orange juice, grapefruit that can’t take medication with, so had nothing to drink except allotted splash of water into small paper cup. Dreadful journey"

Cons: "Never took the flight because BA would not rebook me on a later flight after delays on their side caused me to miss my original flight, even though there were seats available on the later flight. This cost me a lot of time and money, but BA made out like bandits -- selling my original seat, and then selling out the next flight (because the delay!). Nice rip-off."

Cons: "We missed the flight and so has nothing to say. We are still lamenting over our lost luggage"

Pros: "Food was very good, and plentiful! Wine served with meal! Friendly staff! Smooth flight!"
Cons: "Seats are a little narrow"

Pros: "Delayed flight Inflight entertainment notnworking"

Cons: "No USB or power outlets. Very small screens for the entertainment. Definitely, not up to par for a long international flight."

Cons: "Slow crew. Same good choices as flight just before"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "carry-on not allowed on board"

Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "entertainment system - very old and no way to get power for personal devices. This is a problem for such long flights"

Pros: "Everything was okay"
Cons: "Everything was okay"

Cons: "The crew were spread thin and not particularly helpful. We were charged for drinks that are usually complimentary (water and ginger ale) and when the credit card slip needed to be signed, my partner's ginger ale was spilled. The attendants couldn't be bothered to give us more than two cocktail napkins to clean up an entire can-worth, and did not offer to replace the drink. I had to dig into my bag to try and find napkins because there was soda covering the tray as well as all over the seat and his lap. I've always had positive experiences on BA flights, but sorry to say this one was sub-par."

Pros: "Long haul service and food has improved but service is still kinda ‘cold’. Cabin crew still wears a frown most of the time."
Cons: "The reclining mechanism is not user friendly whereby the chair does not recline smoothly. Unfortunately it falls too quickly and not allow the passenger in the back row to get out of the way. a must thing to improve."

Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "Did not get the seat according to the seatplan.I booked exit row seat 30..got 30..but exit row was 28."

Pros: "Boarding, friendly people in London and Hamburg"
Cons: "Flight attendants, plane, food"

Cons: "Food quality was mediocre, choices limited"

Pros: "Crew was awesome. Seats were very comfortable. I slept the entire flight do so I am unable to comment on food or entertainment"
Cons: "The boarding process could use a lot of work. The gate isn't known until practically boarding time. The Admirals Lounge really could use an upgrade. It was uncomfortable and it was a great disappointment."

Pros: "Food was nice"
Cons: "Poor screen quality, ok selection of movies compared to other airlines, poor selection of audio"

Cons: "You have to pay to select seats for water and even a basic snack"

Cons: "The airplane was shaking all the flight"

Cons: "A lot of flights park away from the terminal and you board a bus to get to/from the plane. No power outlets at seats."

Pros: "Oh my gosh.... I had the best flight ever. I wanted to be in Business Class, but the flight was so full, but when I sat down, there was an EMPTY SEAT next to me. What a beautiful thing. Flight was great, quiet and comfortable. Boarding was great and I enjoyed the my flight. Thank you:)"

Pros: "Cabin crew was amazing..... didnt mind the delay things happen"

Pros: "Staff is always nice. Food service is generally good and the food tasty."
Cons: "Older plane that only upgraded business and first class. Standard class seats and entertainment old and nominally functional. Felt more like a third world country than what I'm used to on BA"

Pros: "Only thing I liked was the travel time to destination as it was the quickest flight due to circumstances and time I needed to travel."
Cons: "I didn't like near enough everything about this flight."

Pros: "Best airline !!"
Cons: "Always timely and flight crew is personable and helpful."

Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "They make you pay for WATER on BA!"

Pros: "The food was very good, and the entertainment selection was good."
Cons: "I'm a small person, and I found the seats too narrow and there was so little leg room."

Cons: "I am emerald on one world. In the departure flight I was not able ot reserve an aisle seat during online checkin ( need to get up on flights quite a bit for health reasons). I had been assigned a window although aisles, my preference, were available. I sought to change seats from window to aisle and would have been charged USD $18 (on a flight within europe - why dollars?). The BA staff said the website would be fine on the return journey - but it was not. I arrnved at teh airport (not having checked in as I didn't want a window) and the BA staff person in 46 at 6:45pm simply said that's impossible to change anything - no apology; she seemed rather irritated to be asked. I then went to security and the machine for priority queue did not permit me to enter - it said 'invalid ticket'. Then the flight was significantly delayed. So all in all not a great day."

Cons: "luggage was on another flight - i got my luggage 24 hours later"

Pros: "The way to goA380"

Pros: "flight departure and arrival were early. check in was easy even though I arrived at the airport late due to weather."
Cons: "extra baggage and overweight fees are excessive"

Pros: "Good and on time flight. Loved the information given by all crews."
Cons: "My bags arrived a day later on 25th night which caused alot of inconviniency because i had to travel back to the Airport the following day for my cloths. The baggage handlers opened my bags and removed some items which is unacceptable . Stressed still about that"

Cons: "The seat arrangement is awkward with very tight seats. Little room for storing personal items and no privacy whatsoever on aisle seats. Entertainment system needs updating. Moving map was not working."

Pros: "Food was good. Special meal request was well handled. Not lost in the shuffle."
Cons: "See comments under Chicago -London flight above"

Cons: "No working entertainment in our entire row. Bad qaulity seats"

Pros: "Flight attendants were great."
