Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "We went to the wring airport (BWI instead of DCA) but JetBlue was able to get us on a flight boarding in only 25 minutes at BWI. No problems at gate; we gate-checked our bags, and being in row 20, we're happy that boarding started at the back of the cabin (how sensible!)."

Pros: "First time on Jet Blue...good rid."

Pros: "Most room on an aircraft in the last 10 years."

Pros: "Best price and better aircraft/service and amenities than most."
Cons: "We were a bit late (30 min) taking off but that was an airport issue, not airline."

Pros: "I'm tall so the extra leg room was good for me."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "The staff was so friendly. They accommodated a bachelor party's request to collect wedding advice from fellow passengers on a napkin and recognized a few birthdays. The stewardess making the announcements was very genuine in her well wishes and being part of everyone's day."
Cons: "40 min taxi time but not much we could do about that."

Cons: "I've flown from Reagan National (DCA) to Boston Logan (BOS) twice in the last two months, and each time was delayed by 2-3 hours. Why? I understand that Logan has runway construction, but I was flying on Friday night one time, and Sunday night last time. Is the construction still going on such that they don't know a day before my flight that it's going to be delayed by hours? Come on!"

Pros: "We had to make a flight change due to bad weather in FL. It was done quickly, efficiently and at no cost. Wow, what service!"

Pros: "Great price great service for all staffs in all areas"

Pros: "The stewardess was very nice"
Cons: "We had to deboarding the plane due to electrical reasons, which is unfortunate but I understand. However.. The pilot scared everyone when he said told us that we were deboarding and literally said "it's better to find out now while we are still on the ground because it could have happened in the air and that would not have been good". As someone who has flight anxiety that was not something that sat well. In addition we were not given any instruction on what to do at that point. Should we try to find another flight?.. Should we wait for the plane to get fixed?.. Are we all boarding another plane?... Everyone was confused and frustrated!"

Pros: "First time flying with Jet Blue and it was great. Loved the leg room and amenities at every seat."

Pros: "Everything was on-time, comfortable and quick."
Cons: "Minor issues: the wifi was useless and the I wished that the TV had closed captions."

Pros: "The crew and comfort were great"

Cons: "There is not a good snacks. Other than that service and confort are on their level."

Cons: "Told about our 2 1/2 hour flight delay at the original boarding time, then kept at the airport until 1:30 AM when the flight was finally cancelled."

Pros: "Price, schedule, and price"
Cons: "Gate personnel at TPA neglected to inform us of a gate change which almost caused us to miss our flight - argued with us about the efficacy of their so called, gate change announcements . No notification either email or text from Jet Blue to check in. Seemed to make the process harder to complete. The mobile site for Jet Blue was not very reliable or user friendly and made getting boarding passes quite trying. All this only applies to the DCA to TPA leg of our trip."

Pros: "Seating was spacious in 4A, and I am a larger than average person. Loved the Terra Chips for a snack! Generously gave me the whole can of Coke Zero, where some airlines dole drinks out in half can servings. Left and arrived on time."
Cons: "There was some entertainment at Ft Lauderdale Airport when we arrived. The person who knew how to drive the bridge between aircraft and terminal was not there. Someone pitched in and rammed the aircraft around 4 times, trying to make a good connection."

Cons: "The flight was very turbulent, and the captain did a poor job of keeping the passengers informed. In situations like that information goes a long way in comforting people."

Pros: "As always, I genuinely prefer flying on JetBlue & this flight (once we actually took off) was fine."
Cons: "The flight was several hours late departing - not a usual occurrence for JetBlue!"

Pros: "Kept on schedule despite rough air. Professional crew and a clean aircraft."
Cons: "Seats are tight on legroom."

Pros: "The crew was outstanding."

Cons: "My electronic boarding pass would not load on my phone right before boarding. It had loaded fine at check in. Had to get out of line and have attendant print paper pass."

Cons: "Rude, abrupt crew in flight. Boarding agent made us check a case that we carried on on the outgoing flight, with exact same dimensions. Prefer Southwest!"

Cons: "We were supposed to have 2 wheelchairs meet us and it did not happen We ended up walking slowly to baggage claim where our driver met us."

Pros: "Your employees are happy."

Pros: "Excellent overall service."

Pros: "Not enough restrooms the food was not the good mor"
Cons: "More choices for food seats not comfortable too narrow no space"

Cons: "They told us there were no earbuds so recommended using our own. Our children had left theirs at home so they ran to get a $20 pair nearby. But the the plane DID have the buds; what we did not have were blankets — the crew said none were to be had."

Cons: "2 hours Delayed and operated by United ..."

Cons: "Seats felt like Adirondack chairs..hard and no lower back support."

Pros: "The seat 16A is very comfortable and spacious. Most of the hosts were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "My screen did not function well and sound was very poor. I had to have my computer 'rebooted' two times. The second time was done by a gentleman who was a bit sarcastic when I asked if he could help me, as I had waited 20+ minutes for the help to get it going again. You need to update your system!"

Pros: "The crew was excellent and always there to help. They managed a 15min boarding due to being well organized."
Cons: "I’m 5’7 and my knees were touching the seat in front of me- there is no way to be comfortable. You pay an extravagant amount of money and get squished in there like sardines. It’s disappointing."

Pros: "Treated passengers well - even those of us in steerage. Food was excellent and entertainment options plentiful. Coach is still coach, and it’s hard to settle in for a nap. So, if arriving rested is important to you, spring for business class."

Pros: "Underseat AC power and USB power was the highlight of the trip."
Cons: "Food portions were tiny. Totally dehydrated at the end of the flight, and water was passed out in 100 mL servings. Insufficient space under the seat for a backpack."

Cons: "Missed this flight because my first flight was a cancelled flight, missed intercontinental connecting flight."

Pros: "Diner"
Cons: "Was told that an upgrade to premium economy entitled us to lounge privileges. Were told by attendants that we had to pay an extra $35. each. We had $6.30 subs from potbelly."

Pros: "I wasn't expecting free in-flight movies and meals, which were very welcome"

Cons: "Seat pocket was damaged and couldn’t be used. Food was at best mediocre. Old salad, old bread, no salt with warm meal."

Pros: "Probably one of the best economy experiences I have had in a long time. The staff was very friendly and professional. Also one of the first times that i was actually comfortable in an econo seat. Hats off to Lufthansa!"

Cons: "Seats very crowded. No leg room at all."

Cons: "After usual perfect service from Luftahansa, I noticed that my lagguage was opened and destroyed."

Pros: "Timely, friendly, clean plane"
Cons: "Food was bland!!!"

Pros: "Everything on the flight was very efficient and organized—the boarding process, the excellent and pleasant service, the food, and the entertainment selections. Thank you for making a long flight enjoyable."

Pros: "A couple of flight atrendants were civil"
Cons: "Gate was changed three times immediately prior to departure. Plane was BERY small. Food was awful."

Pros: "Impecable service. Even worth flying through FRA."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything, as always, great. Keep it up."

Cons: "This particular flight was delayed beyond reaching the next sep,so we have to rebook our flight threw Chicago in uncomfortable hurry."

Pros: "Boarding was made seamless. Seating legroom always seems to be better then others I have flown with. Food seems to be better too. The flight crew is very friendly!"

Pros: "new clean aircraft."
Cons: "no breakfast."

Pros: "This was actually a United Airlines flight connecting to a Lufthansa flight in Munich. The crew was friendly and thanked us individually for flying with them as we prepared for landing."

Pros: "Everything was amazing Very pleased!"
Cons: "Good choice entertainment but system is slow to respond and crashed on a few occasions"

Cons: "It was a transatlantic flight in coach. There is no way to make that a pleasant experience. Entertainment system was down. Ran out of one dinner option."

Pros: "Excellent flight, crew, food and service."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly and attentive. The flight was very smooth."
Cons: "My seat back was not easy to keep in the reclining position."

Pros: "great and pleasant service, caring and helpful, frequently offered beverages, delicious vegan option, great movies selection, not much turbulence, overall like Lufthansa the best: reliable, on time,"

Pros: "Best crew ever. By far most friendly staff and excellent service."
Cons: "Nothing that I know"

Cons: "This was a united flight. The personal was not helpful, only in helping me communicate with the airport in Rome to change my flight. I had to pay 97 euros for this change. I am upset and think it is not fair that I need to pay for a problem united had with their flight. I also think star Allience failed as they were not able to resolve the problem with their partner airlines."

Pros: "When we fly Trans Atlantic, we always hope it will be with lufthansa! Sometimes they use united as a carrier and it us never as good as lufthansa!"

Pros: "Efficient, early check in and seat selection was simple and done from home. Got to the airport early which is unusual for me but everything went smoothly and was relatively low stress."

Pros: "Everything else was fine."
Cons: "I had paid for comfort seats ($140) extra. When I checked in at gate I was given another seat assignment (without explanation). It turned out to not be comfort seat, in fact it was the last row in the airplane. Had to get eh gate agent back, which was not fast. She said flight was full and a family had been spread out. I understand, but you can't just bump me from a paid and selected seat to a standard seat, especially on transatlantic flight after paying $140 extra. There was no apology. She went back to gate and little while later came back with a comfort seat. Some people seem not to have shown up as the seat next to me stayed open as well. It was very poorly handled."

Pros: "Late departure, full flight but good overall."

Pros: "Check in was good. Everything was orderly and on time."
Cons: "Fairly cramped for an international flight."

Pros: "flight attendants were very nice, helpful, and accountable. I wish every flight had them on their crew."

Pros: "Great service, food, crew."
Cons: "Seats too small, very uncomfortable."

Pros: "We purchase extra leg room seats which turned out not to be available. The crew understood our frustration and upgraded us to premium economy. Many thanks!"

Pros: "I love the crew, the seats, the food was wonderful and the flight was the smoothest ever. Thanks"

Pros: "Boarding was again easy, directions were clear as to where I should sit. My only trouble with the crew was that announcements were sometimes too quiet to hear at all, which I hardly cared about anyway (seat belts, please). The movie selection was unexpectedly good, as was the music section. Books were meh."
Cons: "I was not comfortable after about four hours, my biggest problem being I had already been riding in an airplane for a total of six hours that day. Food was fine, but came with salt, which was nice. I don't expect a four course meal on an airplane, but I didn't eat with gusto. The headphones provided were lousy, but I just plugged in my own set."

Pros: "I was fortunate to have a complete row (3) seats for myself; the plane was new and in excellent condition. All the staff was courteous and helpful."

Pros: "Flight not too crowded. Check in allowed us to switch seats to maximize space."
Cons: "Food was just so-so."

Pros: "Lufthansa's newest 747-8 airliner was quite the treat for international flight. 100% LED lights with subtle purple-blue mood lighting overnight looks pretty and mimics Virgin's design. Dozens of movies to choose from in addition to many more entertainmrnent options in the widescreen touchscreens. And actual silverware for food, even in economy. The addition of Premier Economy (wider and longer seats) copies the design from United's Economy Plus, at the expense of regular economy's legroom (I believe). Note: if you have noise canceling earphones or headphones like myself, get the 2-jack airline adapter. Lufthansa uses the proprietary dual-jack, at least in economy."
Cons: "Pasta dinner only had 1/8 piece tomato. Stick to the chicken."

Pros: "great service, food, and crew"
Cons: "Absolutly no negatives"

Pros: "We had a great trip -- helpful flight attendants...and no worries at all."
Cons: "DELAYED LEAVING FRANKFURT BY AN HOUR DUE TO BAD WEATHER."

Pros: "Crew, boarding, flight ahead of schedule"
Cons: "I booked Lufthansa...why was I on United?? United is a far inferior company. No food on a cross-country flight?? I was asked to pay for any more than a couple glasses of water. Really? On a 6 hour flight? I had to pay for entertainment? All my other flights it was free...feels like nickle and diming. Will not fly United again."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "lufthansa used United for this flight. probably because they run out of airplanes, they used a plane so old, I believe it was from Nixon's time. very very old. I am suprised I made it one piece to Amsterdam. So dissapointed why Lufthansa linked their name with such a poor company like United. I never fly United."

Pros: "Nothing. Our flight was delayed by 4hrs due to weather conditions at SFO."
Cons: "Same issues as per first leg of my trip - Brussels/Washington, but even more restricted seat space. There was a empty row[3 seats] empty behind me. I'm a DVT patient[got it a couple of years ago while flying back from China - didn't move during the entire flight] and need to move frequently and need legroom to stretch out my legs as much as possible when sitting. Anyway, having informed a crew member about my DVT condition, I asked if I could move in the empty area - mind you, that was after plane door was closed and boarding had been completed. She refused only to give after takeoff the area to a lady with a little dog in her purse. This flight was operated by United. Our household will from now on avoid any flight that's operated by United."

Pros: "Liked the toilets downstairs. Good selection of entertainment. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "When I checked in I was told that I could take my suitcase, which is a carry-on size suitcase, on board. While boarding I was made to check it as luggage and told it was to big and too heavy even though it weighed 12kg."

Pros: "in flight service is great, lounges are excellent, and personnel are well trained and courteous"
Cons: "that I couldn't bring my kids into the lounge"

Pros: "The movies in the flight"
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was absurd. There were 3 people who fainted because it was an 8 hour flight, and the AC was not at an ideal temperature. I was sweating, and so was my mother. ABSURD"

Pros: "meal"

Pros: "Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Very old plane with seatback screens or USB ports for charging."

Cons: "Unwashed pillow and blankets, stains on the pillow"

Cons: "Horrible complimentary food quality in economy class. Not enough options to purchase food/snack."

Pros: "Friendly crew. Food was nice."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Loved it"

Pros: "good service in spite of rather crammed conditions and short flight, UK newspaper was available, plenty of leg room (biz class consisting of one row in the front:))) - the lucky 4 in that 1st row were the only ones to get food, and also drink for free, it seems... and yes, the flight was short and otherwise uneventful, I was the 1st to walk off the plane."
Cons: "The plane was a tiny oldish commuter jet with 2 seats on each side of the aisle. In "biz class" you still had to rub elbows with your neighbor, something other airlines with newer planes have sorted out, but allowing extra space between seats.... but overall, for a short flight (not much longer than an average subway commute in NYC), it really was not a huge deal...."

Pros: "The airplane is great. So much leg space!"

Pros: "Food."
Cons: "No audio."

Pros: "Plenty of leg room, and I got an empty seat next to me! Food was served on time (an hour into the flight, and about two hours from the destination). The options were decent particularly the caserole in terms of portions. Plenty of overheard compartment space, even with a nearly full flight."
Cons: "The arm rest between seats doesn't raise to the full upright position, only one-half way. The TV needed to be reset by the purser due to it being stuck on kiddie mode. If you're a snacker, bring food."

Pros: "the food provided under gluten-free food"

Cons: "On a 4 hour flight, food had to be purchased on board or (as I later learned) purchased and ordered in advance and this option was not offered to me in check in process."

Pros: "Everyone was polite and helpful and did everything to make flight comfortable"
Cons: "Plane tiny and not very comfortable, but the flight time is pretty short so it is not bad overall"

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: "In cabin crew was good. Good service"
Cons: "Crew at gate wasn't really friendly. Made some of us check in our carry ons stating that the flight was full, but I found on the plane that there was tons of overhead space after everyone had boarded. I had a connecting flight to tallin for a conference and was nervous that my checked in carry-on wouldn't make it."

Pros: "The food was surprisingly pretty good"
Cons: "It was an old plane (A330-300). The seats are not very comfy, not much leg-room, and not very stable (i.e., when others are getting up in front or behind you)"

Cons: "We paid for economy comfort and signed up for the 2x2 seats. Instead we received the 2 seats in the middle of 4. we were more than upset, there is no way we would every request the 2 worst seats in that area and given my husband is 6'6' Did not make for a happy experience."

Cons: "No kiosk check-in? The airline definitely takes its making pasengers queuei for hours."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Food was terrible. Entertainment system kept breaking."

Pros: "fast boarding"
Cons: "rude crew- the crew was impolite to all passengers."

Cons: "The meal made me sick."

Cons: "There is no wi-fi There is no possibility to charge your mobile"

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: "My stay in the air was approximately about an hour from stockholm to Helsinki. They smiled me and gave comfortable service as always . Thanks"
Cons: "It may be not about flying process but airport environment or service. ARN airport was a bit cold even inside of the building . The WiFi was offered only limited time , which was very shorter than I expected but overall status with cosy mood made me as if I were at home . On the other hand , the finnair check in counter had only two , one of which was business and the other was economy it took about 40mins to send my luggage and check in ."

Pros: "I was a bit surprised by cabin crew 's welcoming words that were my native language ,which ware very familiar and joyful . I didn't feel well at that time with a severe cold and I endured during the entire fly . I know it's kind of bad but I made it to my country safely. The food was Korean food and I really enjoyed and loved it so much .The Helsinki airport is great with smoking booth and warm ."
Cons: "Nothing but I wonder if they could change my seat to upper one despite my additional fare because I felt bad the day and they had cold pills like medicine."

Pros: "Excellent"

Pros: "Good movie selection, frequent water refills, boarding was quick and easy with ample overhead stowage"
Cons: "Seat recline was broken, non-adjustable headrest, older flight crew less tolerant of passenger disrespect, not quite enough bathrooms, food had my stomach in knots"

Pros: "Plane was on time Checked luggage arrived I slept for the duration of the trip which made the 5 hour flight OK."
Cons: "Legroom and seating in general is cramped. But unfortunately that is the case in today's travel experience with US carriers."

Pros: "Airplane was pretty spacious and clean and it had all the amenities of a newer plane"

Pros: "Food on into fight inedible..No Food on domestic. Charge for everything."

Cons: "I missed my flight from Chicago to Paris. Because I purchased it through Kayak instead of directly through Finnair or American Airlines, their 'hands were tied' and they could not reroute nor reschedule me. Not only that, but because I was not on the flight to Paris, my returning flights were automatically cancelled. While this is probably included in the fine print etc., I find it ridiculous. There should be a better alternative for people who miss their flights than forcing them to pay a lump sum that is higher than the original ticket price in order to reschedule their ticket. Moral of the story: BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN YOU BUY THROUGH KAYAK OR SIMILAR AGENCIES, BECAUSE THE CUSTOMER SERVICE IS ATROCIOUS."

Pros: "Great airline. Food great comfortable seats."

Cons: "Cold"

Pros: "Crew was accommodating, entertainment movies was good and food/snacks was not bad for transatlantic flight from NY to Paris. Seats are cramped, but it is expected."
Cons: "Didn't appreciate the additional charge to select basic seats (not upgraded), not sure if justfly.com is affiliated with Kayak. I found it absurd but read reviews that if you don't select seats you might get bumped off your flight if it's oversold. I didn't take any chances so I paid the additional $29 and yet both my fiancee and I sat way apart. Arriving at the airport to check in, I saw options to select seats which made me upset even though there was nothing next to each other but way more options than online."

Pros: "Traveled BA and it was lovely, as usual."
Cons: "The flight staff on this particular BA flight was not as accommodating and friendly as I am so accustomed to on BA. Perhaps the flight attendant in charge of our seats was having a bad day. Also, the food on our BA flights to and from NYC was not up to scratch and rather bland and ordinary, compared to their usual. that was a huge disappointment."

Cons: "Need wifi to work. Highly dissapointed that BRITISH air doesn't have this feature. Most airlines do!!"

Cons: "In-flight entertainment was not working. Made and 11hr flight seem light 20 hrs."

Pros: "The price was right. The crew were very pleasant and attentive. Seating had sufficient room. Good movie selection."
Cons: "Seats did not recline properly, were not comfortable and very hard and hard on the bum."

Pros: "Great service. Comfy seats."

Pros: "The flight crew were professional and friendly."
Cons: "the seats are too small and cramped. I am quite small and I felt cramped. I feel on long flights there should be more leg room"

Cons: "The food was terrible , the flight was canceled from Paris to phila , i didn't know til 8 pm . It was very hard to have an other flight from London to phila. A lot of souffering for me ."

Pros: "Blueberry juice - nice change for sodas and so refreshing! The lady captain's announcements were very clear, light and fun...and perfect in three different languages...her enjoyment came across professionally...truly catering to her passengers. She flew that plane also so very smoothly!"

Pros: "Great flight, crew was very nice. I would rebook with British airways."

Pros: "Maybe they should call these flights "Byzantine Airways". Finnair doesn't fly Boston to London, so my Finnair flight was on British Airways, but I did it that way because BA wanted more money that day. As a flight, it was OK. I don't think I have much to say about Finnair."

Pros: "Everything was fantastic! I was upgraded to first class for the first time in my life so that was an added bonus. The crew were great, extremely friendly and attentive. Overall good experience."

Pros: "On time service, very simple and fast boarding, nice crew, nobody complicated with luggage"
Cons: "Cost for additional luggage was high, some food can be served for so long distance flight."

Pros: "food and crew"
Cons: "Poor entertainment offer (no quality movies and not varied options-not classic movies!!). Interactive device menu not working properly or at all. Outraging policy to offer more bookings than available seats that turned out into my wife and me being put in standby when we had purchased our tickets last July. Waiting for 30-40 minutes to claim our baggage to know it had been left in our origin destination in the end so it would probably be delivered 2 days later since the next flight would arrive the following day but late in the evening and more time wasted on the lane to claim for it that caused to miss our connecting train that would take us home and we had to wait for another hour to take the next so we finally got home 2 hours later than expected. We will never use again another company from the one world alliance."

Pros: "I was feeling very comfortable, the hospitality was excellent, the flight was great Thanks very much on everyone"

Pros: "The process was straight forward. There was nothing wrong but nothing special."

Cons: "Flight was a mess from the crew"

Pros: "Exceeded my expectations in terms of comfort and amenities."
Cons: "Pitch is pretty tight for an international flight."

Pros: "Seats were very uncomfortable (economy), cabin was smelling urinal, flight was full, just the thought to go to the amazing country kept us (4 of us) encouraged."
Cons: "Seat comfort for six (6) hours flight could be better"

Cons: "It was so HOT in our original row (13). The woman next to us passed out, no doubt because of how uncomfortably hot it was"

Cons: "Boarding process. Drinks service - even just more water would have been nice."

Pros: "Entertainment, spacious, comfortable."
Cons: "No complaints."

Cons: "Flight labeled Economy but actually Economy Light, which meant no baggage. Just Fly didn’tt Show that."

Cons: "No food or snacks unless purchased."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "No food at all, no snack"

Cons: "the delay starting in DC, followed by more delay on the tarmac in Reykjavik, and followed by long waiting for the bus to get paasengers to the airplane in Reykjavik"

Pros: "Unlike most American airlines that charge for getting on the plane first, Icelandair has a sane boarding from back of the plane to the front."
Cons: "I fly quite a bit, especially overseas, and this was the first time there has been no food service and a charge for any food at all. Entertainment system has fewer choices than any other airline I've flown."

Cons: "Didnt even offer coffee or juice in the morning"

Cons: "I was surprised that we did not get a meal service, not even a little snack for a long hall, from D.C. to Iceland. The only service we had was the water. I probably won't fly with this airline again....Sorry."

Pros: "They set us up with free hotel in Reykavik, but that's about it."
Cons: "Where to start? They were delayed 3 hours leaving DC because of technical issues and kept promising us they would hold our connecting flight to Zurich. That of course didn't happen, so we proceeded to have to wait in a line at their service desk for 2.5 hours just so they could rebook us for the next day. We lost a day of our vacation due to Iceland Air incompetence"

Pros: "The overnight flight from the states to Iceland was really nice and the airline provided pillows/blankets. The stopover in Iceland was easy to navigate in the smaller airport."
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Service was excellent."
Cons: "Have no complaints at all"

Pros: "Exit row seating was comfortable with plenty of legroom."
Cons: "Delayed flight with no communication from boarding gate. Knew about delay from Kayak hours before we heard about it at the airport."

Pros: "That there were complimentary blankets and pillows."
Cons: "There wasn't a good variety of food/meals. There were mostly just overpriced snacks."

Pros: "Very nice plane with free movies and comfortable seats."

Pros: "good legroom, free entertainment, flight on time, two free bags"
Cons: "No food"

Cons: "Did not realize that free meals were not provided. The trip ended without eating for 9 hours, as no hot meals were offered."

Cons: "Boarding/departure was 30 min late. Sat in the back of the plane - the stench coming from the bathroom was nearly vomit-inducing."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful and the boarding process was smooth"
Cons: "The seats were stiff and uncomfortable."

Pros: "Crew was friendly, flight was good"
Cons: "The seats on our plane were the worst seats of my experience EVER. When you have to be seated for 5+ hours, some level of comfort is required. I could barely stand by the time we got to Iceland. NEVER again. I'm not usually picky but this was ridiculous"

Pros: "Excellent service and friendly people Check in was very easy When flight was delayed they held. The plane for us"

Pros: "Timing"
Cons: "Tight seating"

Cons: "No food on either flight. First flight was 20 minutes late, which made our one-hour layover very stressful. We asked the Icelandair woman at the gate if our bags made it even though our layover was short and she seemed annoyed by the question, and said "Yes. All the time." Our bags did not make it, and it took an hour and a half after waiting for our nonexistent bags for 30 minutes to report them as missing, as there were two employees in the office for 30 people whose bags didn't make it."

Pros: "Entertainment selection"
Cons: "The ac was bit working in our section and multiple toilets were malfunctioning."

Pros: "Inexpensive, efficient crew."
Cons: "Reykjavik airport is doubling in size. They have increased the number of travelers into the airport before the infrastructure is ready! Consequently the lines and wait times for connecting travelers at passport control is unbearable! I guess this is the price we pay for low cost flights!"

Pros: "Schedule and cost"
Cons: "Well I guess you get what you paid for. Worst seats and comfort I've ever experienced flying."

Cons: "No food on a 5 Hours flight. Entertainment was very poor. Long flight delays made me waste most of my first day in London"

Cons: "I was delayed 9 hours due to a strike, including a 7 hour layover with no offer of compensation or assistance."

Pros: "The seating and cree."
Cons: "Unexpected reassignment of confirmed seats, and then reinstating the originally confirmed seats during boarding. This was very annoying at the least. Reykjavik airport was very cold. Did not appear they were running any heat. Landing and boarding from the turmack was not pleasant."

Pros: "Air traffic controllers strike was explained to us beforehand"

Pros: "Nice flight crew, seats more comfortable than I expected, in-flight entertainment system included music, movies, promotional videos...but make sure you bring your own headphones! They have some for purchase, though."
Cons: "Other than the 2 free checked bags, pretty much everything else costs extra. I didn't try any food or drinks, so I can't comment on them."

Cons: "my seat selection was changed while boarding. Was placed in front row next to door. Lots of leg room but also lots of cold air coming in from door...was freezing the whole time despite blankets"

Pros: "Excellent service, very friendly staff, more leg room even in economy, great bang for your buck. Wish all airlines were more like Iceland Air."
Cons: "Thought really hard about this question... Nothing negative, really."

Pros: "Very friendly flight crew Free water was appreciated"
Cons: "The headphone jack on my seat was partially broken, so I only got audio on one side."

Pros: "The staff did a great, efficinet job of boarding the passengers. They did everthing that tthe crew in Reykjavik did not. (Please see below.) The boarding was smooth and we departed on schedule."

Pros: "A surprising amount of legroom! The flight was incredibly well managed. We were well taken care of and everything was prompt and efficient."
Cons: "The gate at Keflavik had nowhere to sit. I prefer some sort of included food, but all of it requires payment--even little snacks."

Pros: "The boarding was done well, with those in the back of the plane boarding first, which cut down on crowding and people standing in the aisles! The lights in the cabin were designed to look like the Northern Lights, which was beautiful, relaxing and made me even more excited to be going to Iceland."
Cons: "There were very few entertainment options (not many movies, music, or television shows) and the screen was not user friendly."

Pros: "Great Crew, entertainment, service and comfort. Nice that you provide USB plugs for charging devices."
Cons: "Paying for food. However the process of using debit card to pay for it was easy, but just not use to paying for food on a transatlantic flight."

Pros: "The food was good and reasonable. I paid more at the airport and it sandwich was so dry I left half of it uneaten. I had the "spicy chicken" sandwich which is not hot spicy, but very tasty. And the "happy wedding "cake and a soda. Very happy with most things. I came by wheel chair, but was able to walk to the plane. Maybe there was a misunderstanding, but I did have to stand awhile at the front of the plane before being allowed to sit. Trip went well. We had a fair amount of turbulence, but it was announced. and handled very well."
Cons: "More water please! I"

Cons: "No food included on almost 6-hours flight"

Pros: "Baggage care Friendly staff Food options"

Cons: "Small seats No meals served for free Bus flights connection at Reykjavik airport Signals and directions at Reykjavik airport"

Pros: "Friendly staff, good food selection, nice range of entertainment"

Pros: "Friendly flight attendants."

Pros: "WiFi entertainment get 2 checked bags included Bottled water as your enter plane Professional crew"
Cons: "Lousy menu choices no seats at boarding gates in Reykjavik airport."

Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the food was unexpectedly good. I also appreciated the pillow and blanket that were provided. And it’s nice having individual screens on which to watch movies and television. Made the time “fly by”."
Cons: "The woman in front of my husband leaned her seat back as soon as we were airborne and stayed that way for the duration of the trip. That made it more challenging for him to use his tray but other than that, no problems."

Pros: "It c was fantastic"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "None"
Cons: "Took about a month to book an infant ticket, then was issued a ticket with a wrong name, which then took another 3 weeks to be amended. When checking in, the agent told me that my daughter's ticket was not linked to anyone and looked like she was flying solo even though I mentioned to 5 different customer service agents that I would like to add her to my itinerary. Just when I thought it couldn't be worse, captain announced that they were having trouble with the AC for my part of the plane, meaning 7 hour flight was hotter than 80 degrees. I should also mention that trash was not collected until breakfast service."

Pros: "Flight was smooth"
Cons: "I upgraded to business class and the seat felt like a cage. The flight attendants were much more interested in talking to each other than helping a paying customer. Terrible customer service with bitchy attitudes from a bunch of men."

Pros: "Crew member was especially gentle, kind and resourceful. She gave toys to small upset child sitting across the isle from us. Child became calm."
Cons: "Timing of the meals. Would rather have slept after take off and had a substantial breakfast before landing."

Pros: "Professional, nice and pleasant staff, food, timeliness"
Cons: "Small leg room, thinness of Sears such that any small movement from person behind was like a kick to the waste/back, old small entertainment screen, no eye masks"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "food / leg room / in-flight entertainment / no wifi / no plugs for electronics - everything was missing and horrible."

Cons: "The flight was late and the info was not shared. The attendants were not helpful and were unkind. The food was served in a strange timing."

Pros: "Flight was smooth, check in process etc was fine."
Cons: "Small poor pixel quality screen, small movie selection, very avg food."

Pros: "Flight attendants"

Pros: "Boarding, crew and meals were good. Bedding was very nice."
Cons: "Cabin was a tad warm and biz seat was broken. Flight crew was sympathetic."

Pros: "Received a lower than expected upgrade fare for Club World. The new Club World amenities are a big improvement over the older option."
Cons: "BA still needs to improve its Club World seat and update it. It is significantly behind the competition. The seat lacks meaningful storage options and if you don't have a window seat, there is absolutely no privacy."

Pros: "Free movies Comfy seats Good food Attentative and friendly staff As a USA citizen - I would love to put us up as the pennacle, but British Airways puts United and American Airlines to shame."
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "A one hour connection in london heathrow is near to impossible. I lost my connection i was suppose to be in madrid at 11am and it was suppose to be a 10-11 hours of travel. I wont make it to madrid until 6pm incremeting my travel time to a total of 24 hours for this reason it was and is a POOR and mediocre flight!"

Cons: "The food choices were not appealing at all, and there wasn’t very much food either. Also, seats were narrow and uncomfortable. The seats seemed much better on the flight from London to Madrid."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours before takeoff. Then I missed my connection flight at LHR. Consequently I had to wait for 4 hours to catch filling flight form LHR to NCL. BA very poor service."

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "cold bread"

Cons: "In our party of 3, one bag was lost -- apparently stolen at Rome airport. Nobody there from Aerolingus to go to! No complimentary food or even water from Dublin to Rome. Lousy food and expensive drinks elsewhere. Airplane from Dulles to Dublin ws old, unkept, antiquated. Serbve on airplanes was bad to nonexistent. NO coffee in the am after an overnight flight!!???"

Pros: "All BA employees were wonderful and helpful"
Cons: "List bag. Spent all day at Heathrow with 2 jet lagged kids. Missing medication. Had to go shopping for wedding clothes. Pretty much the worst day of my life so far. (I must have lived a fairly charmed life till then ;)"

Pros: "The flight was bad I lost my luggage"

Pros: "The inflight entertainment was top-notch. Plenty of choices, good quality and the touch screen responded well to touch. Boarding was quick, efficient and pleasant."
Cons: "Cabin crew servie was somewhat lacking during the flight. We got our drink before dinner and the drink cart did not come back again when dinner was served so we had to have dinner without a drink (other than the small cup of water that comes with the tray). Breakfast now has been relegated to a breakfast bar - really?!?!"

Pros: "Many entertainment options, food was tasty."
Cons: "Movie options were not new releases"

Cons: "My daughter spent several hours in the checking in process. It was vary confusing and frustrating."

Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "Nothing was offered for free to during or even a simple snack what about a sandwich, Huge disappointment"

Pros: "Flight and connections in perfect time."

Pros: "Selection of movies"
Cons: "Time of flight"

Pros: "The crew was polite and helpful."
Cons: "The temperature was extremely warm and the food was terrible."

Pros: "Movies selections were great!"
Cons: "One stewardess in particular was rude to people asking her questions about deplaning. Food options were crappy. Flight was delayed by two hours. They didn't call to notify prior to departure. Thankfully, I noticed early enough and was able to change time of my connection from London to Edinburgh. Otherwise, would have missed it!"

Pros: "Crew, service"
Cons: "Seating was bad, broken springs and uncorfortable back support"

Cons: "Having paid for a seat 3 months ago, I arrived at the airport to find that I was a standby passenger."

Pros: "Cleanliness, staff, food, staff"
Cons: "@ 6'4" leg room was tight. Please would airlines load from the back to be more efficient?"

Pros: "Nothing went wrong, everything on time"
Cons: "Mediocre service, not what you expect from a premier carrier, I have not flown BA in many years and my how the stands have slipped. Economy was sub par with little to no room, not comfortable for a 7 hour flight."

Pros: "The flight,from take off to landing & crew was very good."
Cons: "The food served from Washington to London was very good. However,food served from London-Lagos though good but i was surprised that when the cabin crew who served our compartment told me that my choice of lunch was no more available in the plane to served me. Simply, they ran out of chicken and rice when it got to my turn. I had to demand to speak with the manager who came to speak with me & had to go to business class wing to get me a meal to eat. The manager was very understanding & nice.She took good care of me & fulfilled my desire.She made me happy. In conclusion,every flight should always have more than enough food to go round every parssenger in every flight in the future."

Pros: "I've boarded flight half this size in twice the amount of time it took to board this Airbus A388. I enjoyed sitting on the upper deck. It was a night flight to London from DC, so I closed my eyes straight away, and didn't partake in any of the meal or entertainment options available. Flight crew was very nice and personable."

Pros: "Kind and helpful staff, clean plane, generous food and drink service"
Cons: "Very cramped and thin seats, and rather hot temp in the cabin"

Cons: "na"

Pros: "Seats were good, movie selection good. Everyone very nice."
Cons: "No breakfast!! Just grapes or banana and granola bar??"

Pros: "I liked that there was no one in the seat next to me. The seats were large enough. I am 5'9" so that is always important for me."
Cons: "The kid sitting behind me intermittently kicking my chair. I was awoken with 3hrs left to go with a hard kick. But kids what are you gonna do."

Pros: "The pilot communjcated very well and was able to keep passengers calm during the heavy turbulence."
Cons: "I was only allowed ONE free bag for an international flight??? Totally unheard of. This was my first time flying BA and it will certainly be my last. For a 12hr flight, we were only fed ONCE! There was also an hr + delay without prior notification sent via email."

Pros: "Smooth flight, friendly staff, blankets provided!!!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The in flight staff was great!"
Cons: "There were some rude agents we dealt with in London that made some remarks about Americans. Very unprofessional."

Pros: "Great airplane - huge Airbus with excellent entertainment center for each seat. My kids loved the fact the plane had two levels - even though we didn't see the upstairs first class."
Cons: "It was a little cold but we should have asked the flight attendants to warm up the cabin some."

Pros: "the seats,leg space"
Cons: "crew should be more involved"

Pros: "Pros..Communication was excellent, we knew our flight was delayed hours in advance so we could prepare, they rerouted our connection so we didn't have to worry about that on arrival, and the onboard crew was excellent and caring. They helped a family to sit together by asking for volunteers to move, and they helped me locate my daughter who had been delayed by a problem with gate check in. The flight was smooth and we all arrived safely."
Cons: "The seats in economy were extremely cramped, there was no legroom and I don't know how tall people could fit in there. There is no way a person could get out of his or her seat to go to the bathroom without making the others in the row stand up and get in the aisle and that's pretty uncomfortable to do on an overnight flight when people are sleeping."

Cons: "Felt cramped in the seats."

Pros: "First time on the huge Airbus. It was fantastic. Romy and comfortable"
Cons: "Reclining of seat back became a bit uncomfortable"

Pros: "The addition of headrests are very good."
Cons: "the seat size, like all other airlines, is small and uncomfortable for 7 hours flight."

Pros: "Actual flight and eqt good - Airbus."
Cons: "Spent hours in advance trying to get seat selection and also at the 24 hour mark. British airways owns Aer Lingus, and the flight number they give you as a BA flight doesn't even exist. So getting your seats is impossible, whether from BA or Aer Lingus. And there seems to be no way to correct it."

Cons: "Food"
