Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew was exceptional. They took care of the customers with passion and energy. The Q suites are comfortable and one of the best seats out there."

Pros: "The crew really cares about their passengers"

Pros: "Crew AMAZING. Service was impeccable. Food and wine were interesting and varied. Absolutely amazing comfort."
Cons: "Media choices were not interesting to me. Used my own device instead."

Pros: "The portion for LAX to Doha was fairly comfortable and crew was helpful.. they kept running out of meal options by the time they reached us mid flight .. Doha to Bengaluru portion was less classy— the TV/ remotes etc didn’t work well and overall service not as good .."

Pros: "Excellent service provided by crew"
Cons: "Food needs improvement"

Pros: "Crew was nice. Seat was broken for recliner."
Cons: "Having parents with infants board with or after those needing assistance. It was an inconvenience having a fussy infant wait in a long line. We had bassinet seats so boarding first would not have slowed the seating process."

Cons: "Better vegetarian food"

Pros: "seat was okay, far from comfortable, plane too cold, although they did have blankets, late boarding, no particular reason, it's probably not Qatar's fault, but baggage service at JFK was terrible."

Pros: "Everything was GREAT!"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The seats are smaller than other airlines.My entertainment system stopped working mid-flight on a 16 hour flight from Doha to LAX.Food portion is not enough. No hot towels on boarding, no welcome drink or snacks. Food is served only twice on a 16 hour flight.Rude immigration officers"

Pros: "Food was good, and the crew were very patient and polite - went out of their way to make us comfortable."
Cons: "The aircraft seemed to be really old. The entertainment system on the seat I was allotted did not work, and I had to change seats. In the new seat, the entertainment system worked, but the seat didn't recline, and I had to change seats again - from an initially allotted aisle seat, to a middle seat. Also, the food service time was weird - we got a full lunch about an hour before we landed, which didn't make sense, and had to wait almost 5 - 6 hours between brunch and our next meal - a movie snack. Most passengers were famished by the time the lunch was served. Also, why was there no wifi?"

Pros: "Staff on the plane is fantastic."
Cons: "No option to pick a seat in economy class."

Pros: "My comments are as above . On the Auckland to Quatar leg of my journey Excellent airline and crew."

Pros: "Everything frim the xrew I could at the JKIA, NBO to Delhi. One thing more from my city Lubumbashi, I didn't care about getting my phone bzttery low. I could chzrge my phone all the journey long. And from Nairobi, I dodn't czre at zll about my phobe, because I knew I could charge dur to the usb device. If ever something to complain about, I'll let you know. Regards Richzrd DIAS"

Pros: "Entertainment is very good"
Cons: "it felt like sitting in a sardine box"

Cons: "The TSA agents broke my phone and tried to hide it in a secured package with another of my electronics. I questioned why 1/3 phones were in secured and the others were not. I was told to not open the bag until I reached my destination. Lucky I opened it after I cleared security to find that the face of the phone had been shattered with glass shards sticking out, I bought this to the crews' attention and was told to send an email to a random email for the airlines and that the incident would be investigated later. So basically I was given the brush off. Worst experience I have had while flying."

Pros: "The airplane seats in economy were comfortable for the very long flights I took with Qatar Airlines. The seats had enough room between the back of the other seat. The seat reclined to a comfortable position. The seat back provided a built in head rest. The TV's in the seats were the largest I have ever seen on a flight in economy. The staff were helpful and great. The food and drinks provided were decent!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Hi I travelled on 7/16 from Philadelphia to Cairo through the Jordanian airline . Unfortunately the luggages didn't reach to Cairo airport with me . 3 days later they told me that the luggages in Jordan and I have to travel from Alexandria city to Cairo to receive my luggages . When I went their , I found my luggages were opened and missing much items . I made reports on the airport. The employees in the airport they wondered why the opened the selling box , and the box looks empty. The weight for this box was 32 kilograms in the time of shipping. And I paid $400 for extra weight . But when I received it was like 20 kilograms. Plus I paid $350 for Qater airline for shipping 3 luggage . That's means I paid $750 for shipping 3 luggages and I received it looks empty . I need refund for all shipping and $5000 for damages items , or I will complain this airlines through the American court . Thank you"

Pros: "Crew are great and entertainment options are good."
Cons: "The seats are quite uncomfortable and small. Really struggled to get comfortable."

Cons: "I will never ever fly Qatar airlines again. The boarding for this flight in Doha was horrendous. I and a random group of passengers were made to wait with no explanation AFTER our electronics were already cleared to go through yet another security check. They said we were selected for screening but all the other people they took before us were screened the exact same way. It was stressful and traumatizing to stand for 45 minutes with no clear explanation. The crew were clearly new at their job or ill trained. On top of that they consistently ran out of food they were serving and was forced to take the vegetarian option when it's not what I wanted. I could not wait to leave Doha and exit Qatar airways. I hated my experience traveling with Qatar. It was stressful and traumatic. I want a full refund. I will also be advising all my friends to never fly Qatar. It was the WORST!"

Pros: "jFk To DCA crew is fine and helpful."

Pros: "Norhing"
Cons: "They have mabaged to lost my luggage"

Pros: "Good service onboard, good food. On time."

Pros: "Comfortable seats. Warm plane with happy staff."
Cons: "Maybe a second sandwich option for food, not everyone likes cheese."

Pros: "Only thing we liked was the fact that we were able to get onto our flight at all..."
Cons: "Was not informed that checking in online is the only way to secure a seat. So, regardless of whether you book your tickets 3 months in advance or the day before, you're not actually guaranteed a seat unless you check in online. We weren't told this until we were at the airport and checked in there that we might not be able to get our pre-booked in advance flight because of over-booking from KLM. We then had to wait and see if there were seats available when boarding. Luckily, there were, but we were not sat together. Not the greatest start to our first holiday together as a couple. We were told that if there weren't seats available, they'd pay for us to get to another airport to fly out, which would have meant a huge delay on the only time off we'd get together this year and have to rearrange our pre-booked and pre-paid living arrangements for the week. All because there wasn't a lot of emphasis on the need to check in online before hand. You'd think if someone checked in at the airport, that would be more of a guarantee that they'd be flying with you that day, but apparently not. Definitely not impressed or happy with this part of the KLM experience. This is the only company that we've had this problem with, they should make it clearer that it is essential to check in online."

Pros: "Consistently high standards"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Airlines issue"
Cons: "Profiling certain customers"

Cons: "Dutch sub titels would be nice."

Pros: "The cabin crew were pretty good. That's about all that was good."
Cons: "I paid almost $400 for upgraded seats. When I got to the airport-- no seats-- both ways!! i didn't even have regular seat assignments. I had to choose from the last few seats available. The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again."

Pros: "Good efficient flight crew friendly and helpful"

Cons: "No proper info regarding cancellation. Staff was unfriendly and abruptly responded to passengers."

Pros: "Short-hop flight, fit for purpose."

Cons: "Old airplane with not really comfy seats. No outlets for charging devices. Very old entertainment screen."

Pros: "great choice of entertainment content, friendly crew"

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."

Pros: "Overall very nice flight, even comes with free drink and snack"

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "Space"

Cons: "Air France’s apathy towards its customers is shocking. Traveling with three children , our flight was delayed by 3hrs resulting us arriving in Paris after 1AM. With the airport shuttle(CDVAL) to our airport hotel closed, they offered no assistance despite of my request. Simply asked us to take a taxi (when all taxi stands are abandoned at 2AM). Beware if traveling with family."

Cons: "I may be wrong but these days, the staff curtsy and overall well coming approach is lacking! Just a smile and a few cheerful words can transform passengers’ mood greatly!! This becomes particularly important when one is traveling for > 9 hours back to back flights!! One can extra charge for it!!"

Pros: "Crew asked us if we’d like to move to an empty row to be more comfortable without us even requesting it."
Cons: "Bigger coffee cups? Really nothing to complain about. Everything I would expect from a flight. A++"

Pros: "n/a"

Cons: "2 hours delays from LAX to CDG then additional two hours delay from CDG to CAI, this is disappointing"

Cons: "Seats are not comfortable for long haul. Airbus 380 premier economy. Not enough reclining and leg support."

Pros: "The crew was amazing and extremely helpful!"

Pros: "Had decent room space seats comfortable"
Cons: "My luggage could have arrived for a start"

Cons: "Crew forced me to change my upgraded comfort seat to accommodate a 12 year old who they knew was going to be airsick. So I spent the first half of the flight next to a vomiting girl. Only after I asked to file a complaint, they allowed me one of two empty seats in premium. Terrible customer service."

Cons: "More water provided during the flight. Also, the second meal was not very good."

Cons: "The flight delayed for 2xhours from Paris to Cincinnati"

Pros: "Crew was very nice and the food was excellent."

Pros: "We were a little delayed, so I read my book. Not for long though as I was really tired after my flight from Los Angeles. I fell asleep right after take-off and didn't wake until we landed. Best way to fly :-)"
Cons: "Very little legroom for a 6'1" guy. Would have liked a bit more space, but I guess I was too tired to let it bug me."

Pros: "Didn’t like the sandwich offered"

Pros: "Fast and efficient boarding and friendly and efficient staff. Landed 15min ahead of schedule."

Pros: "Personnel"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "1/ the transfer crew needed 50 mn to enter my son’s visa number in her computer and she almost let us miss our flight 2/ we were separated (party of 3, my son being 5 YEARS OLD) - how can they allow a boarding and expecting my 5 year old to do a 10 hours flight BY HIMSELF???? 3/ no kids menus, even if I had ordered it before 4/ food in general was very mediocre 5/ crew was unprofessional and they acted bored"

Pros: "Flight attendant was very nice."
Cons: "We got socked with 40 Euro fees for our carry on plus personal item being 2 lbs over. The biggest problem is they were picking and choosing which bags they weighed. 10 people behind us and before us got in without incident. Plane wasn’t even half full so they were deliberately trying to make more $."

Pros: "Free snack and drinks. Good service."

Cons: "Movies were dated. Crew spoke limited and broken English, not good enough for international flights."

Pros: "Very poor sound quality on the earphones. Made it very difficult to watch a movie and almost impossible to listen to music."

Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "MD planes are old and not very comfortable."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1.5 hours"

Pros: "Other crew members were very polite to us, in particular a younger tall woman."
Cons: "2 crew members, one named Terri were quite rude and short with us. I even heard her say she was ready to get off the flight. She also asked everyone around me if they liked their flight but did not ask me. She basically threw my coffee condiments at me and dismissed my concerns about the food. I was unsure if the fruit was expired and she quickly dismissed my question without any real explanation."

Pros: "I had a choice of movies, games and music that was very appealing. My concerns about not receiving the correct meal was handled professionally and promptly during the flight. I was surprised they couldn't discover I only ordered it for the second leg of my flight."
Cons: "Being placed into a window seat at 6' 5". Although I opted for general seating rather than paying for a extra leg room which is out of my budget. Not getting an aisle seat was disturbing at my height. Then there was the guy in front of me not willing to forego putting his seat back on my knees for over half the flight. It would be nice if the seat assignments for general boarding considered the height of the person being assigned."

Pros: "Space"
Cons: "Couldn't adjust the seat and the cushion wasn't comfortable neither seat or back. The bottom back was like a board across the bottom and hurts."

Pros: "Boeing 777 had a lot of space. Good legroom. Timely departure and arrival, hassle free, safe trip all the way. Enjoyed the red wine; very delicious!"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline. The entertainment unit was very difficult to dislodge and raise to use (We were in the front). Movies were kind of older ones but I had reading to do so entertainment wasn't that important."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1 hour 30 minutes. After over 24 hours of travel this was not appreciated. Also no lounge access at Toronto airport."

Pros: "The food, the facilities, the seat, everything."

Cons: "Airport handling is catastrophic. A lost bagage created the twins to be locked. Half an hour and we could not enter. Delays and huge mess in front of police checkpoint. No announcement and no care for passengers approaching departure time. And to top it all no announcement of any delays. Had to cheat my way through the priority line and run a sprint through security and beyond. Reached the gate to note that there was a delay of 5 minutes.... Grrrr"

Pros: "I liked their seats, I had enough space to get comfortable flying internationally for 14 hours."
Cons: "Just wish they served water a couple times more, because when you're in the plane for the whole day, 2-3 little cups isn't enough."

Pros: "No complain about Air France. The service and food are very good. Enjoy it."
Cons: "Our return flight is Milan--CDG--SFO. The transfer time at CDG is 1 hour. The line at CDG is incredibly long. We barely made it. IMPOSSIBLE for tax return. Very bad flight connection experience."

Pros: "I was too tired to stay awake so I slept most of the flight. The ground crew at the checking booth was kind enough to provide me with an aisle seat to accommodate my long legs, from which I suffer if I would sit in a middle seat."
Cons: "Nothing that I can remember, again I was too tired to stay awake."

Pros: "Courtesy staff excellent!"
Cons: "Console for gaming poked guy in front. Needed joystick"

Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "Check in (i could not do it online) and the 82 chf cost to check a suitcase"

Cons: "Seat pitch is tight and seats don't recline. Boarding should be back of plane forwards. This would eliminate the log jam that happens when it's front first."

Cons: "The airplane was really old."

Cons: "complimentary water needed"

Pros: "The overall experience was great! I was extremely satisfied. I thought the crew was very kind and the extra touch of bringing ice cream to everyone as a treat was perfect for our family that had to restless little boys."
Cons: "I did find it strange that the only brought the drink cart around once during the 9 & 1/2 hour flight. It was a cost savings approach more than anything. For the crew, I am sure it was also a time savings approach. When going to find another drink, it was clear supplies were also thinning out."

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"

Pros: "Punctuality!"

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?"

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

Cons: "They’re not too helpful in helping me get on a flight to my final destination."

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."

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

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"

Pros: "Friendly people-excellent ammenitties-great flight. A new & improved airline from prior experiences."
Cons: "Nothing-all was great."

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: "Fsst board to front of plane."

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

Pros: "British Airways provides complimentary amenities in coach not found on US carriers: A hot meal, snacks, beverages other than water or coffee/tea. Their media selection is superb. They seem to work hard to make a nine-hour flight over The Pond as tolerable as possible."
Cons: "My comfort was better on the return leg because I had the extra leg room that comes with being seated on the emergency exit row. However, regular coach seating is at best tolerable. You are packed like sardines and the seats are firm, to put it mildly."

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"

Pros: "Made the long flight feel short and very comfortable."
Cons: "It was fine, it’s just a flight."

Pros: "Flights were on time"

Pros: "Crew did a nice job. Enjoyed Best of British movies. Food was not great but was OK."
Cons: "Space around seating was substandard. If person in front reclines their seat, then you are trapped for the duration of the flight. Would be good if passengers were requested to put their chair backs forward during meal time."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Seated at front window seat where one can be overlooked, friendly attention and service by attendant was assured and most appreciated. Please thank her!"
Cons: "Seated at front window seat where one can be overlooked, a few times I was overlooked by same other attendant. No kudos for him."

Cons: "It would be nice if someone cared about something. It didn't seem like anyone liked their job or cared about the passengers. All seemed like corporate greed. I have flown over 40,000 miles this year. This was the most unsatisfactory flight. Come on guys, create a good environment for a win win situation. Happy passengers make more money for the corporation in the end."

Cons: "Food and drinks are really sub-par"

Cons: "I am not a fan of flying it's just something I have to do occasionally."

Cons: "Our flights were sold as British airways but operated by American Airlines. Yes, we flew economy and we were expecting small seats, but these seats felt extremely small. They pack so many seats into the space that there is no comfort at all in flying. It was a complete let down. Food was an improvement from our flight from LAX To CDG, but if was only mediocre at best. I really expected this flight to be better than those I've taken with Vueling, Iberia and Virgin but it was terribly disappointing. I would think twice before purchasing a ticket with this airline again."

Cons: "I told the ground crew that I would prefer an aisle seat when I checked in, and she acknowledged my need. Yet, it turned out that I was given a window seat while there are vacant aisle seats on the plane."

Pros: "The boarding was seamless. The process used leaves very little room for error and speeds up the time for takeoff."
Cons: "This was the second flight out (we missed the original connection). By it being the next flight out we lost a night in Accomodation's that was already paid for with no chance of reimbursement."

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: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed in the middle of boarding with no AC when board. Luggage was broken. Missed connection to California due to delay."

Pros: "The service was great"
Cons: "Nothing"

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."

Cons: "No water was even available for free"

Cons: "way too much of bad to be listed. But can say for certainty that I will avoid to book with BA in the near future."

Pros: "I like the fact that was San Francisco to London just one chunk of the flight."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I did not have enough room for my legs. We were crump like sardines. The food was discusting, unedible. The quality of the air was very bad. It was hard to breath inside."

Pros: "Very spacious seats Incredible amount of legroom Professional staff/flight crew Quick and easy flight"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Breakfast was pathetic"

Pros: "Check in, flight was on time"
Cons: "The time it takes for getting from 5 to 3. Almost missed my plane on the trip in."

Pros: "Fight was on time. BA Crew always do a nice job."
Cons: "The entertainment on the flight didn't work. It is not easy to have two small kids on a 9 hour flight when the entertainment system isn't working properly. We did bring our own items to entertain our kids but with the limitations on what you can carry on we were banking on them being able to use the in flight system."

Pros: "Easy to upgrade at gate, though I had to ask twice."
Cons: "- horrific food. not even consistent w economy food on gulf airlines. - drab interiors - old aircraft - tiny business class seats - malfunctioning / sticky controls - extremely overpriced."

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 drop down food trays were dirty and we had to ask an assistant to clean them. The light refreshments were served late - we were landing just as they were handing out the drinks."

Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Toilet in the A320 we flew was looking a bit tired"
