Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew stepped up when we were delayed. In Flight entertainment was nice to help pass the time."
Cons: "More honesty from the pilots/airline. Got on the plane, taxied to take off, then informed that we had to go back to the gate. At the gate, they wouldn't let anyone off and then we were told that there was a minor maintenance issue that would take 15 minutes to fix. It took 4 hours. Poor job by Delta"
Pros: "Crew did not serve breakfast because flight arrived earlier How about better communication with pilot?"
Pros: "The crew was polite but not overly friendly or welcoming."
Cons: "Boarding was orderly but it was hard to hear the announcements of the zones. I flew economy and it was like flying in a frozen sardine can. There was absolutely NO leg room. At 5 ft, 2 " if I found it difficult, I cannot even imagine how a taller person felt. I wore a coat, sweater, and scart , and warm socks, and I was still freezing the entire trip. It took me 20 minutes to thaw out after arriving. It was quite uncomfortable."
Cons: "Delta changed our seat assignment and our seats sucked"
Pros: "Everything on time, friendly and helpful attendants"
Cons: "Why does boarding have to happen with several other flights, gets confusing. Have other flights board at a different time or from another gate far away so customers don't get confused"

Cons: "No food"

Cons: "Plane was late coming in and my departure time was 30 minutes off schedule."
Pros: "Staff was friendly."

Pros: "very friendly crew"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "Free movies"
Cons: "Crew wasn’t very friendly"
Cons: "Everything fuckin sucks"
Cons: "I began asking for my wheelchair escort the minute I got off the plane. I was assured in Houston they would be there when I got to Detroit. They were not. The request was clearly spelled out on my boarding pass along with my personal oxygen equipment information. I kept asking different staff and they would call for me then say somebody would be there. I waited for an entire hour and only when I started to cry did somebody do something. It was terribly stressful."
Pros: "The in-flight movie was very much appreciated."
Cons: "Retrofitted entertainment system under the seats made it very uncomfortable. It was hard to even stretch your legs."
Pros: "Good in general."
Pros: "everything is fine except th nickel and dime."

Pros: "Loved the Clear/Skymiles fingerprint boarding! Great line markers at DCA as well. Would love to see those in other cities."
Pros: "Excellent service, God flight"
Pros: "We stood on the ground due to weather, which had nothing to do with the airline itself. Keeping this from jading my point of view, the airline stood within the standard of what is expected of a good trip. Food was good, and the choice of movies, shows, and games helped the time pass. Staff was friendly, and checked bags were ready rather quickly."
Cons: "The number of updates telling us we are going nowhere, was a bit excessive."
Pros: "Customer services"
Pros: "No headphones available for flight"
Pros: "Delta fo"
Cons: "The service was terrible. Also a ripped off base on I was expecting to be treated as if I was on Virgin nothing compares to it . Delta plane making a loud noise we can even heard anything when pilot does announcement. I want my money back or I should be reinbuise some how."
Pros: "movie choices are great"
Cons: "the people sitting behind me kept talking about dying from the aircraft, it makes me uncomfortable."
Pros: "Great service very courteous crew. Smooth takeoff and landing."
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Plane was late"
Cons: "Never announced we were over 10Kfeet and could turn on electronic equipment, attendant seemed cross when her question "pretzels or coockie?" was answered "yes.""
Pros: "Entertainment ( movies) were nice."
Cons: "9 hour flight and no food(meal) until 1 hour before we land. The worst food I've had on a international flight."
Pros: "Good experience overall. Pleasant staff. Movie features were wonderful and helped pass the time."
Pros: "Customer service very courteous and friendly."
Pros: "The service. The plane (seemed like an international plane). Food options. The service and the service. There was a problem getting on, they allowed premium members to board but when I got to the plane, I was scolded by the cleaning crew lady (maybe the Mgr) that they were not ready and that she had informed 'them' of that and that no one is allowed to board while they are cleaning."
Pros: "Free food for all on this flight! Turkey sandwich was actually quite good! Great legroom, flight attendants, and pilot. Free great movie for all."
Cons: "Spent $25 on Main Cabin Preferred when I thought it was Economy Comfort. Did not really change my experience and i'm out $25."
Pros: "Not much"
Pros: "exit row - good leg room; new storage compartment was good."
Cons: "New seats = hard; got uncomfortable after about an hour. Wish there was a way to disconnect folding tray from behind seat - person behind kept dropping it, drumming on it, open it and closing it - really a nuisance."
Pros: "I could have flown United direct for about the same price - but chose to fly Delta via Atlanta because, well, it's DELTA. Delta's first class is really first class - it's more than just a bigger seat .... the staff from the counter to the cabin crew all treat you like you're a valued first class customer. The experience of flying today is mostly like being shoved into a subway train in Japan with no genuine gratitude for my patronage. Not with Delta - they really do go above and beyond and it is not lost on me."
Cons: "The gate for the connecting flight from NY to Rome wasn't posted at the terminal or available via the Delta aps. The Kayak AP didn't have it either. I found out late that it was practially at a different airport. With less than an hour I had to take a bus to a different terminal, walk through, exit onto the street, cross the street and walk down the block to a different terminal. Then I had to re-enter through security (where the line was wrapped back to the front doors). Had the flight not been delayed for mechanical issues I would have missed it. My flights were purchased through Delta. If Delta uses different airlines they should post gate information on their web sites."
Cons: "Seats most uncomfortable on any flight I have ever taken"
Cons: "I had paid for an upgrade to sit in the front of the cabin with extra legroom (row 14A). When I boarded a man sat it my seat. He had not paid for the upgrade, but the crew let him stay in my seat. I had asked him to social distance but he continued to sit right behind me bo matter which seat I moved to. He argued with the crew until they gave up and let him stay. They did not check his boarding pass or ask him to move to his assigned seat I found a different seat away from him but I don’t see the point in paying for extra legroom when the crew let’s people who haven’t paid for it sit it those seats. I felt harassed by the man and was very uncomfortable the whole flight. I am considering my next step, I think I should at least receive a refund for the upgrade I paid for."
Cons: "When a bought my ticket, I had asked in the office about WiFi. They told me that you have WiFi on the plane. I had checked this information on KLM.com and saw the same, that you have WiFi. This was the reason, why a chose KLM! Then I tried to connected on board but I couldn’t! WiFi was not available. Crew told me that they don’t know anything about it! I was disappointed and angry."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The time between flights."
Cons: "Seats in economy section are very close together . There is not enough room for knees...especially for such a long trip."

Pros: "Crew were great"
Pros: "the trip was excellent and comfortable. LOved the windows that shaded out rather than the having to pull down the plastic blind. entertainment on board top notch screen huge One hostess , Helen was absolutely fantastic and the best I ve had on my many trips. I will recommend KLM whenever I can"

Pros: "Seat space a bit tight . I should have upgraded to more leg room . Next time!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and the food was great."
Cons: "Something did not go right with our booking so it took some work for the airline to get it figured out for us. Thankfully we had left plenty of time. But that was an unexpected stress."
Cons: "Larger meals."
Pros: "Time was excellent even considering a connection delay they had. Very polite crew members. Good entertainment options."
Cons: "Cabin was crowded. Leg room was scarce, short seating space. Almost no room for sleeping if you're not a frequent economy traveler."
Pros: "The crew were amazing and the flight was very smooth."
Cons: "Keep up the good work"
Cons: "I booked tickets via Delta, operated by KLM. They lost both of my check in bags in September, and it happened again today for the same scheduled flights. Had 4 hours of layover and KLM still wasn’t able to manage it."
Cons: "Flight canceled, poor communication from the airline to the passengers. Møre than 5 hrs delay"

Pros: "Easy to board and easy flight."
Pros: "Great on board service from a very professional crew."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing."
Cons: "KLM lost my luggage during the layover. My luggage didn't arrive even after the next flight to Prague. Customer service wouldn't give me any idea what flight my luggage would arrive on, nor would they tell me what time my luggage might be delivered to me."
Cons: "KLM staff in the Prague airport were some of the rudest humans I have ever met. So incredibly uncaring and outright mean."
Pros: "Professional crew. Good boarding."
Cons: "No entertainment on board in business. Stale buns - staff unapologetic. Older 737 with uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "infotainment was down. Lost my luggage the flight was delayed"
Pros: "Friendly attendants. Decent food, and frequent snacks and beverages."

Pros: "Very friendly staff"
Pros: "The food was excelent"
Cons: "I have to pay to pay a little more confort"
Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy! We ended up flying from Toronto to Paris then to Bordeaux. Lost my upgrade money for seats. Now have to deal with KLM for refund!"
Pros: "The staff was fast and curteous."
Cons: "There is not anything to complain about besides the usual discomfort of travel."
Pros: "The staff were friendly and all smiles. Seats were comfortable and we had a quick, smooth flight from Edinburgh to Amsterdam. The breakfast supplied was an egg and mayonnaise sandwich plus a drink, which seemed about right and very Dutch in character."
Cons: "It was rainy and necessary to walk outside to access the plane; the staff should give their customers a heads-up so that jackets can be donned. Additionally, the check-in queue seemed rather sluggish."
Pros: "Efficiency and speed of boarding was acceptable. I have no complaints about that aspect. The Comfort+ seats were worth the upgrade, pretty comfortable and reasonable legroom unless you have a big carry on stowed under the seat in front of you."
Cons: "The first announcement they made to all of us in the economy section was thay they did not have any headphones for anyone but business class. I was told when I booked the seat that the headphones would be complementary. So I did not bother to bring any assuming they were going to keep their word; I figure I'd make it work and watch a movie without sound. If that isn't bad enough midway through my nine hour flight my monitor went out and would not turn back on."
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: "No complaints at all."
Cons: "The fact that there are different airline carriers for one flight is hard. In my second flight they made me check a bag which was considered a carry on during my first flight"
Pros: "I fly delta this was run by KLM they weight all bags delta does not they don't take TSA preach Check. Delta does It was a free for all with check in and getting into plane"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The staff and crew"
Pros: "I have no complaints about the air crew. They where pleasant and attentive. Plenty of free entertainment. The food was good."
Cons: "my only complaint is the USB ports didn't work on any of the chairs that me and my family where assigned to."
Cons: "Flight delayed ... Myself and three other colleagues didn't have our luggage show up from KLM flight from Amsterdam to Brussels...even though all of our luggage was labeled "priority". Once in customer service line, we looked and saw that many of the other passengers on our flight also never received their luggage. We estimated that 20-25% of the people on that flight did not receive their luggage as they were in line with us for the same problem. Hard to understand how so many pieces of luggage could have been overlooked and not loaded on our flight. Obviously there is a huge gap in their quality system to ensure mistakes like this are prevented."
Pros: "Excellent service and comfortable flight"
Cons: "Flight delay roughly an hour"
Cons: "I slept didn't have snack offered and no entertainment"
Cons: "Airlines had no record of our pets flying with. Missed our flight even though we were there over 3 hours prior. Ruined the last day of vacation. Now we are waiting for the promised help in Amsterdam. No one is here. No one knows anything. Feel like crying"
Cons: "Kids running up and down isle stewards just walking past. Never made announcement for boarding. Worst flight ever."
Pros: "At least the crew was friendly"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 1 hour and we were sitting inside the airbus with no air condition due to technical difficulties on 35 degrees sweating like pigs. No water or snack was offered even though the delay was so big."
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Pros: "Smooth flying"
Cons: "Choice of movies"
Pros: "Good selection of movies. Cool flight data display."
Cons: "Seems colder than other flights I've had."
Pros: "Clean very good seats Nice aircraft very good crew Very clean"
Pros: "Loved it"
Cons: "Missed my connecting flight from Helsinki to Miami because the flight from New Delhi, India was delayed by more than 4 hours."
Pros: "Airport was very comfortable to be at, Flight Crew was nice and helpful. Great movie selection to my taste. Plane landed"
Cons: "The temperature during the flight made my experience very uncomfortable. It was way too cold. I know that it could get chilly at the board and do take warm clothes with me just in case, but this was way too cold. Neither blanket nor my stuff helped. Another thing - I was sitting in the raw 50, and at the 49th raw crew ran out of chicken with only pasta left. ))) This happens, I get it. I've had it actually happened to me before on British Airways flights too couple of times. So it's not too big of a deal. I just wish that pasta tasted better)))"
Pros: "I'm alive. The plane did not implode. No crashes! The crew was polite. Plane was very late leaving. Not a good thing."
Cons: "Had to pay more for extra baggage than a person with the "right" ticket #'s. How to know this trivia in Feb. when buying ticket? My starting #'s did not allow me to prepay online. Instead, rush to airport, pay more by having to pay in person. 2. I also could NOT get my boarding pass online. Instead, forced to drive to airport day before just to be sure I'd be on plane! Finnair counter, Hannele politely double-checked all's well, handed me boarding pass. Hannele told to buy extra baggage online being cheaper. This promise, not accurate. Absurd!"
Pros: "The shorter flight to Zurich was on a smaller plane than the overseas one, but I'm not sure what model. It seemed about average for comfort; overhead bins held my backpack easily, while I find many older planes do not. Coffee or soda was free, everything else was for sale. Attendants on this flight were very busy and very friendly. Check-in was run very efficiently. My check-through luggage arrived intact. Overall a good experience on a two-hour journey. Plane arrived about 10 minutes ahead of schedule, which is always a plus."
Cons: "No real issues with this flight. it accomplished my objective - to get to Switzerland intact, with a minimum of fuss."
Cons: "Completely destroyed our itenerary"
Pros: "Hot towels distributed before meal."
Cons: "Sitting behind me plus the seat across from that in center was an adult with two children going to summer camp in US. There were 40 kids and several counselors on this flight. These two kids were much younger (4 or 5yrs) than any others going to camp. One of the kids could not sit still. The adult behind me sometimes held her in her lap which resulted in pushing on my seatback. While in her own seat the child did not have her seat belt on. Eventually the girl began using her arm rests on either side of the aisle to swing herself. I finally mentioned this and the lack of seat belt fastening to F.A. who said "They're from Latvia. These Eastern Europeans don't think about things the way you and I do." The child was blocking the aisle at times and the F.A. did nothing."
Pros: "Great crew and discovered blueberry juice."
Pros: "Finnair lost my luggage on my way to Sweden. However, they upgraded my seat to Business class during my flight home from Helsinki. It was great!"
Cons: "We had to buy 2 new tickets with Lufthansa in may because finnair cancelled the tickets we bought months ago : the difference of tickets pride was 780$ per tickets to totally we lost over 1,500$ This is not fair at all - they should not propose tickets at such prices and let us think for months our trip is fine because we have to buy last minute new tickets at very expensive prices"
Pros: "Crew service is excellent"
Cons: "Sitting in the cramped economy seats was a 9 hour torture"
Cons: "It is too hard to carry stuff on the stairs at the airports"
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The seats are cramped and the most uncomfortable I've ever sat on. An 8 hour red eye flight made it unbearable. The food is pretty terrible too. This is the last and only trip I'll be flying Finnair."
Pros: "Very nice crew, Economy Premium seats had enough legroom, not a bad choice of movies on the flight"
Cons: "Worst food I ever had on a plane (frequent traveler), I would be afraid to feed it to my dog, let alone eat it myself. Barely ate anything, spent most of my flight very hungry. Refused to eat breakfast at all, it was that bad! Please do something about it, it is outrageous to give people garbage like that."
Cons: "It was n't their fault but My wife's passport expired in 91 days from beginning travel so they wouldn't let us on the plane to Italy."
Pros: "the crew were very friendly, well organized. movie selection was great. meals were surprisingly good and plentyful"
Cons: "not enough leg room. and i have to point out that I am a petite 110 lbs, 5'2" woman. as soon as the person in front of me reclined their seat to either sleep or lounge, I had my food tray on my chest and the small tv screen 8 inches away from my nose. Thankfully Im small but the man sitting next to me was rather tall and had to turn into a human pretzel to fit in that seat and space allotted."
Pros: "It was great to have some empty seats and a choice of seats."
Cons: "I have asked repeatedly for the airline to give out the boarding passes and check bags at least three hours before the flight. Between long lines, security checks and a limited amount of time from when we get our boarding passes, one can not enjoy Budapest Airport!"
Cons: "Small plane incredibly cramped for8 hour flight"
Pros: "The crew was very much professionals, worked fast."
Pros: "Flight left late but reached early. Plane we comfortable and had clean toilets"
Cons: "Crew was very noisy. It was an overnight flight. Waking us up at 1am for dinner not really needed."
Cons: "Seats given away that we selected six months ago even though we checked in days early. Four family members all over plane."
Pros: "Two hours late leaving Miami. Just made my CDG connection with 2 minutes to spare thanks to faster delivery of luggage at CDG"
Pros: "Not bad as cross-ocean flights go, but cramped. The seats (and the available room per person) are what would be considered normal nowadays, but I remember flying thirty years ago. The crew was very pleasant and snacks were served (and appreciated), but didn't make up for the cramped conditions."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient. Flight crew was polite, helpful and friendly. Had adequate leg room in coach, added plus was the flight was not crowded so did not have anyone sitting next to me. Did not feel squashed and claustrophobic as a result. Food was satisfactory."
Cons: "Was inadequately fed on the Houston to London leg. Got nothing but a nightcap. The following morning I received a cold, stale croissant as part of a lunch box for a preschooler, nothing warm, no protein after 8 hrs in flight. I could not check in online."
Pros: "British air is great. Great movies good food. Good service."
Pros: "I thought the BA/American/Finnair flight was excellent. The food was delicious both ways, much superior to United, American or Continental which I often fly. Excellent food, legroom, inflight entertainment (going out my row of seats - well, nobody could get any entertainment access) all was very good. Loved the newspaper choice when leaving Gatwick. I would definitely recommend again."
Cons: "It was delayed uncomfortable and terrible service"
Pros: "Nice company with good personnel."
Pros: "Everything was simple, straightforward, even a bit old fashioned. The crew was friendly, and the service was quick."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "Nice one"
Cons: "Nice one"
Pros: "The crew was just fantastic. ...."
Cons: "I request special meal. ..unfortunately was not provided to me."
Cons: "experience was awful. Helen Rowena Boysen"
Pros: "service . Informed the status of flight immediately. which is very useful to plan."
Cons: "If it is extra line to add for select the type of food, then it is useful the passenger. Because may some people are vegetarian then they know what they can have."
Pros: "On time service, very simple and fast boarding, nice crew, nobody complicated with luggage"
Cons: "Cost for additional luggage was high"
Pros: "on time, rather efficient process, cabin crew"
Cons: "not much room in economy, ipads are not ideal"
Pros: "Entertainment system was awesome and worked very well. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Bathrooms were very dirty. But I didn't visit them til near the end of the 10 hour flight. That would be why. Our flight took off 1.5hrs late due to plane air conditioning problems."
Pros: "The only good thing was we landed early think that was more to do with the wind though!!!"
Cons: "They rebooked us all at the gate and split people up. So boarding was a nightmare without anyone being friendly. The plane was the oldest plane I have seen they had one tv for the plane and the whole section I was sat in didn't have volume that worked and they basically said too bad. The crew didn't respond to any lights that were put on they put their head down and scooted past you. I have been flying to and from USA to UK for 15 years worse flight."
Pros: "It was a British airways code share so their service was fantastic... Great job BA 8005"
Cons: "Finnair service was similar to major US carriers... Horrible"
Cons: "3 hours late. Old plane. tray table broken"
Pros: "Loading was handled well as was most everything else. The entertainment options were good and the airline food was about the usual....Bad to just unappetizing. Overall, the flight crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I am gettin pretty tired that the airlines I book with are FAILING to pass on my dietary need of Gluten-free meals to the airlines handling my return flights... This has happened THREE times now and is getting pretty damn old. I originally booked with Finnair. My outbound flight from RDU to LHR was with American Airlines. My return trip--open jaw--LHR to SEA was actually flown by British Airways. BA was NOT given my transferred flight details of dietary needs and seating preferences. Not as frustrating if this only happens once; three times is definitely a pattern and a problem!"
Pros: "Flight was not full Nice clean 777-300 Better food service than in the past ... more snack service With Global Entry, I was off the plane and in a car in less than 20 minutes"
Cons: "It is over a month now and I am still waiting to get my American Airlines miles awarded to my account. The trip was booked through FinnAir but operated by American Airlines. They are both members of the same alliance. The airline miles number was confirmed with American Airlines upon check-in. But now, American Airlines wants proof of my ticket receipt and boarding pass. I have my ticket receipt but who keeps their paper boarding pass these days? Hope my photo of the gate details suffices for my boarding pass."
Pros: "The seats were nice"
Cons: "They didn't even offer complementary water,we were on the plane for 2 hours almost. Not friendly if you are pregnant or have kids"
Pros: "Nice plane, newer model."
Cons: "The ability to control air flow was available on every other row. We were unlucky to be in an off row and it was very uncomfortable. Fortunately my wife was able to move to the window seat where it was cooler. The athletic team on board made disembarking a bigger challenge than necessary."
Cons: "No complimentary drinks and very tight quarters"
Cons: "I paid extra for exit row seating, but what they didn't tell me was that the flight attendant seat was facing ours, so much for leg room. The actual placement of the seats were aisle row and middle row-so neither of us had a window to look out of or wall to lean against, no overhead lighting or air vent either. Can you say "rip-off?" My husband, who is tall and broad shoulder was constantly being knocked around by the flight attendants and carts. This flight was miserable. I guess I should be thankful for the hour plus delay in departure."
Pros: "Ability to quickly board the plane"
Cons: "You had to pay for snacks and drinks on this flight"
Pros: "Timely service and courteous staff."
Pros: "Cabin was clean. Crew were nice enough."
Cons: "Two hour delay before we could take off. We were in the plane all that time. People were tired and hungry. When we finally got going, we had to pay for food and drinks. The service didn't seem very efficient."
Pros: "Staff was very friendly and informative"
Cons: "Took too long for my bag to come out. Almost an hour."
Pros: "Nothing was good. It was really bad."
Cons: "1. The bags have been lost. They are located, but not yet delivered. All the kid's stuff, beach, personal things, gifts are still somewhere.. 2. IMHO: in Heathrow the Extra sequrity check point is unreasonable for the travelers from the US to Europe. 3 in the plane the person next to me was constantly coughing , NO MASK, it was flue. When I asked help to change a seat, flight attendant did not help."
Pros: "As with every BA flight ive experienced, the crew is charming and witty, fun to talk to."
Cons: "Nothing extra - no legroom, no snacks, no drinks. EVERYTHING is an upcharge. The crew spends the whole flight running credit cards for a coke or a pack of cheese."
Pros: "The short flight easy to sit down"
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable"
Cons: "We were not even offered a glass of water."
Pros: "arrived 8 minutes early"
Cons: "Was told at gate ALL bags had to go in hold. Once bags labeled and on bus NO ONE else was labeled. Took labels off boarded; plenty of overhead room. Why lie to us? Also asked insurance pay out limit of lost hold bag just in case. They refused to answer telling me I should buy a lock to lock bag in case it gets lost.What is that going to solve. Don’t go flying with BA if you have anything of any value or fragile."
Cons: "Flight was 45 minutes late. Crew was standoffish, bordering on unpleasant. They want you to pay for a glass of plain water! Definitely not the British Arways I remembered."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Good day in the skies."
Pros: "It was the typical cattle car flight. It was on time and crew were fine"
Pros: "Everything was efficient and on time. The crew was pleasant."
Cons: "The extra baggage charges made this not economical."
Cons: "The only refreshment without charge was tap water. The crew also pulled a curtain across the tops of the seats in front of us to separate economy from priority, and it felt somewhat insulting. Boarding was delayed with no communication from the crew as we all stood at the gate waiting for instructions."
Cons: "no entertainment at all more significantly, no beverages at all? Flight attendants came through once with the beverage cart, but only asked the person at the end of our row if he wanted anything. He asked for juice assumed it would be complimentary but it wasn't. They offered to get him a water. The flight attendants did not offer me or the man next to me anything at all. Everyone knows that air travel is dehydrating - I can't believe BA doesn't give provide complimentary water and juice."
Cons: "We paid an extra $60 to select seats up front and they moved our seats to the back of the plane without notifying us."
Cons: "Flight attendant named IGOR skipped me when serving drinks and food. But then again when he he offered coffee, he again skipped my wife who was beside me. When I asked for coffee for my wife and that then again skipped us, he just responded, sarcastically, "Really?, really?" What a fool!"
Cons: "Had to pay for a cup of coffee - this is a free service in the US so was surprised when asked for a cc."
Cons: "We have to pay for even water or tea or coffee. So we stay thirsty."
Pros: "I didn't partake of food or entertainment on the two hour flight. All was great."
Pros: "friendly crew"
Cons: "No refreshments (not even coffee or tea) on an international flight. I expect that from EasyJet but not BA."
Pros: "Very courteous attendants"
Cons: "It was all good"
Pros: "No food or entertainment. Flight was delayed, then delayed more because of gate assignment."
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable and no entertainment on the flight."
Cons: "Tight seats ,almost missed flight due to second security check at heathrow"
Pros: "When I traveled Lax to Denmark via London on July.13. At that time from London to Copenhagen crews only sale the food and drinks. My group tour customers were thirsty and they had to take some pills. so they asked just cup of water, but the crews did not provide even a cup of water . That time was dinner time so every people was so hungry too. And also yesterday my another tour customer was so hungry. I understand you not served food at time. but just serve them a snack or juice . Because time jet lag make them more tired and hungry. I was worked at the Korean air line before, so I understand the stewardess should do only follow the regulations. But just serve some water to hungry and tired passengers."

Pros: "Nice aircraft and flight!"
Cons: "We were never offfered a snack! The people in the rows ahead of us got a snack and the people behind us did as well. Last leg of a 3 flight series of about 13 hours (and overnight), so some coffee and a small snack would have been enjoyed."
Pros: "Best airline !!"
Cons: "Always timely and flight crew is personable and helpful."
Pros: "the seats on this plane were more comfortable and the crew was friendly, even though there were some irate customers."
Cons: "We boarded late, sat on the plane for more than 2 hours (it was uncomfortably warm) and were told we then had to switch planes due to a mechanical problem. I understand this happens, but for the inconvenience BA should give some sort of compensation. After the long wait we were starving, but they ran out of all of the food choices. We were scheduled to arrive at 16:30 but ended up arriving after 22:00. this wasted our first night of our vacation in Rome. There was one passenger in particular who was yelling, swearing and causing a scene because of the flight delay. His rude behavior was rewarded with an upgrade to first class. The message this sends to your passsengers is that we should all be loud and obnoxious when problems arise. I was not impressed with my first experience with BA."
Cons: "Checked 3 bags. 65 euros each. I think you own this one."
Cons: "Asked to check baggage in right before boarding. Cabin pressure was terrible. Seats were not comfortable No food was offered for free. No entertainment was offered. Disappointed in flying Airbus 321"
Cons: "My luggage didn't make the transfer"
Pros: "Very spacious seats Incredible amount of legroom Professional staff/flight crew Quick and easy flight"
Pros: "The service at the BA help counter was doing the best they can to get me on another flight."
Cons: "The flight could not properly land because there were issues with another plane on the tarmac. Due to the 40min delay in London. I missed the connection flight to Rome and it was disappointing because I arrived in Rome 8 hours later because I had to board a flight to Barcelona and connect there. My luggage was left in Barcelona when I landed in Rome and I did not have my luggage for 2 days. Very disappointing travel day and I hope it doesn't happen to anyone else."
Pros: "Pre boarding made us 3 hrs late to sorrento Italy"
Pros: "Crew looked groomed"
Cons: "No snacks"
Cons: "Same as above. Spent the flight vomiting from previous food poisoning from Kosher meal. Crew did not seem particularly concerned about my welfare. No one offered to help in any way other than hand me a vomit bag."
Pros: "Traveling alone, especially in another country, can be daunting but at least there was no language barrier, almost! The aircraft and personnel were fine as expected. Much as expected in a domestic flight in the US."
Cons: "Having to pay for a drink of water was unexpected. Not having to deal with cash for purchases saves the hassle for attendants, but the credit card machine did not work, there was no alternative machine to try after I was told "we have been having some issues", and as a result I was unable to have anything. The associate seemed unconcerned and unapologetic and simply walked away. Poor response."
Pros: "Great customer service but a bit of a crowded flight."
Cons: "The lack of comfort."
Pros: "the friendliness of the crew"
Cons: "I'm surprised there were no complimentary beverages. Also, this is not the airline's fault, but the woman sitting next to me was wearing an excessive amount of perfume, which gave me a headache. I think the airline should make recommendations for passengers not to be heavily scented. As a physician, I worry about patients with RADS (reactive airways dysfunction syndrome) who can develop bronchospasm if exposed to individuals wearing lots of perfume, and a plane is an enclosed space."
Pros: "Vueling uniforms."
Cons: "The most tightest and uncomfortable plane ride in my life. Stop flying your customers on such an awful plane especially executive club members."
Pros: "The staff was pleasant & helpful. Queues for boarding moved along quickly & efficiently. Overall positive experience"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "No individual entertainment screens, my 6"2' husband had a large metal box under the seat in front of him and he couldn't extend his legs, the food was terrible, the staff wasn't unfriendly but was not warm and welcoming. This flight was not operated by British airways. It was operated by American Airlines, I much prefer Briti"
Cons: "My luggage was lost and I did not receive it for 2 days."
Cons: "Communicating rules such as not going through the business class to loop around to the other aisle of the coach class is definitely acceptable however the tone in communicating this should never sound condescending and patronizing, esp over the PA. Flight staff shld refine her communication skills."
Cons: "on time departure"
Pros: "Was not long enough"
Pros: "The flight attendants were unfriendly and not very attentive. Although one person did get sick and caused the crew to be shorthanded that’s no excuse to not smile and be friendly. I wanted to throw away some beverage cups and no flight attendant came through for almost an hour. The food sucked."
Cons: "Much better food, even though we were economy class the food could have been better. Also, I was told and researched that there would be an AC outlet at my seat and all there was is a USB port. I rented a portable CPAP machine and couldn’t use it. Cost me $120."
Pros: "It was 3 hours delayed"
Cons: "Fly in time"
Pros: "The entertainment system was great"
Cons: "The ride was somewhat turbulent but nothing can be done for that"
Pros: "Crew tried very hard."
Cons: "Delays. Get on the bus. Get off the bus. Get back on the bus."
Pros: "The selection of movies and games."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable, the arm rest did not go up and the flight was delayed."
Pros: "The meal."
Cons: "You have no comfort at you seats"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "I’m still hungry and incredibly tired. Nobody buys their main cabin extra product, so there’s many empty seats. Ripe for the families that don’t want to pay extra to sit together. Those families bring kids, screaming kids to a section filled with higher fare paying customers. The FA in my section had such big hips, that she knocked my shoulder EVERYTIME she walked by. Not only that, everytime she did the courtesy reach over to grab empty cups from the middle seat, she hit me with her trash bag. Woulda been fine had I been awake, but I was trying to sleep in between the bouts of screaming from the devil possessed kids."
Cons: "At the terminal , they were not helpful."
Cons: "Food was not good at all."
Pros: "Everythung was on time."
Cons: "The seats are much closer together ... so challenging for a 6' 2" male"
Pros: "Reasonably large leg room and overhead"
Cons: "Five times they tried to get us to pay for a seat assignment (even after they had assigned seats). Paying $32 for "priority" boarding is rediculous?"
Pros: "Non stop flight & friendly crew"
Cons: "No foot rest & seats not too comfortable"
Cons: "It was not British airline but was contracted to American airline. It lacked class."
Pros: "Boarding was on time and we departed on time and arrived on schedule-fllight was very comfortable"
Cons: "Snacks were ok but main meal could have been better- suggest u go back to box meal such as a sandwich and piece of fruit."
Pros: "The person at the luggage area, she gave me the ticket, very nice and polite the only professional person."
Cons: "Didn't let me take my hand luggage, small that complies with the size and told me only at gate, I said I had things that could brake and showed no concern and they would send it to my final distinction instead giving it to me in the end of first flight...I've been traveling around the world and the disrespect for customers and poor service of most of US carrier is amazing... some African companies are much better. on the second flight, almost two hours delay, the plane from philly to Lisbon, old, just s few tv screens, exactly like the North Korean airways..., bad food, my tray stayed with me the whole fly, flight attendant not very professional with no concern for customers and job."
Cons: "Seats are not designed for long haul flights"
Pros: "We landed early, it was fairly comfortable in coach for a very tall person, and there was good communication from the flight attendants and pilot with the passengers. A very pleasant experience overall, from someone who is a nervous flyer!"
Pros: "Great crew and new plane."
Cons: "The seats are so small and almost no leg room. Very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Everything was great. Easy boarding great comfortable seating and friendly efficient stewardship"
Cons: "Lost connection"
Pros: "Overall the flight was good, on time"
Cons: "Nothing at this stage"
Pros: "This flight left about 90 minutes late again due to weather issues. The crew was excellent which made this long flight enjoyable."
Cons: "Cannot believe how American a treated it's passengers. 3 hour delay to JFK. No apologies. Missed connection to Paris. Not any customer service agents to be found in JFK at 11:30 pm. No explanation on what next. No hotel.. Nada. I'll never travel with American again."
Pros: "Economy seats were comfy Free movies"
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. There was no leg room and 122 of the space below the seat in front of me was taken up by a metal box attached to the seat. I couldn't put both feet under the seat in front of me. The food was bad tasting and overly processed. We were fed a lean cuisine. The entertainment was from mounted tv's in the aisle. At this point, all planes crossing the ocean should have individual tvs for a customer to watch. They had this 15 years ago, how do they not have it now."
Cons: "Small seats, no wifi, no chargers, terrible entertainment."
Pros: "The water was clean"
Cons: "Everything else! We were first sold a British airlines flight, and then we got switched to American Airlines. I don't know if that is actually an okay thing for them to do. When we got onto to plane we were stuck on the runway for over 2 1/2 hours, where the outside temperature was 95 degrees and the AC in the plane didn't work. The delay was all due to a mechanical difficulty with the engine, this did not give us peace of mind when flying over the atlantic. while up in the air my newly wedded wife and I were hoping maybe we could watch a movie to help keep our minds off the creaking of the wings, the pool of sweat from the delay, and the grumpy flight attendants. Seeing as it was a 9 hour international flight, you would have expected some sort of entertainment. Maybe a personal TV.... nope. Maybe a community TV... nope. At least they have to have a radio....... nope. All we got were our two thumbs to twiddle. After a much needed nap. We woke up hoping maybe for a hot breakfast, but to put the cherry on top of some terrible ice cream, we got a mediocre cold breakfast. All in all I will not fly American Airlines again. I would happily and quickly pay double for any other airlines but them. It's such a poor reprisentation of our country."
Pros: "The cabin crew were absolutely outstanding."
Cons: "Seat spacing for international flight"
Cons: "The plane was very outdated and the food was poor. Flight attendants were very rude."
Pros: "Boarding and debar king was quick."
Cons: "Attendant was surly, no coffee, no continental breakfast as indicated on the reservation. Very disappointed with in-flight service."
Pros: "Boeing 777 was very comfortable and quiet. Power provided to each seat. Food and drink were readily available."
Cons: "They had to reboot the entertainment system 2 times to get it working which took over an hour. Had to redo seat assignments. Did not like bogus 79 and 129 dollar seat assignments that were designed to just extract more money from the customer."
Cons: "First the flight entertainment was terrible for an international flight, no internet because it was a old plane. Some video monitors were terrible color and resolution."
Pros: "Not much to like, plus we were late"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, no in-seat or personalized entertainment."
Pros: "The quality of aircraft"
Cons: "The service lacked any sort of empathy. The crew on this flight especially the African American lady, I think are in the wrong profession. Didn't care at all. Seemed miserable."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Cramped seats. Entertainment system outdated"
Cons: "Attempted to make my connection which was in another terminal. Could not get onboard as they shut the doors. My rerouted flight was in a different terminal. Overall a very disappointing travel experience."
Cons: "I paid $150 extra for 2 exit row seats thinking we could use the extra room on the long flight. Unfortunately, the exit row space was cut off by and smaller than a normal row! Our legs were extremely cramped by the time we got to Rome. We had no overhead storage, which was already small, so we had to put our carry-ons multiple rows behind us -- which made exiting the plane a pain. There wasn't any personal entertainment systems, just one tv per section. The food was sub par. The crew was nice enough, but I'll NEVER take American Airlines internationally again."
Pros: "Seats had enough room. Inhad been worred they'd be too close since iwas the middle of a 5 person row."
Cons: "The boarding was terirble. We were over and hr late take off and it was very hot boarding and it took a long time. Also the air was so dry i got a nose bleed."
Cons: "We were in the very last row so they ran out of food options."
Pros: "Checking in was a breeze. Flight crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Extra baggage fees. Older plane missing some of the common amenities like wifi and individual tvs. The cabin Tv was small."
Pros: "Crew was ok, did their best considering the circumstances, but even they were getting aggravated and were short with the passengers near the end."
Cons: "The Washington airport is horrible. The gate we left from was not a gate but a series of doors that buses came to. This wouldn't be so bad if they were able to handle it in an orderly way, but the airport showed complete incompetence in organizing anything and there were people everywhere trying to find the right door which kept changing on them, and the times kept changing...it was a mess. Then, when we finally got on the plane and were about to take off, the air traffic control tower called and said that their flight path was incorrect and to not take off...but didn't give them a new flight path for nearly two hours as we sat on the runway. Nationalize the airports in DC, fire the whole lot and start fresh, I'd say."
Pros: "I have never felt so smushed in to a space for so long."
Cons: "Space between the seats"
Pros: "Staff was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Experienced 4 hour delay with mechanical and weather problems. But glad they put safety first"
