Good

The checkin staff at Delhi Airport was very rude. Instead of solving the problem they started shouting. Also there was no one to pick helpline of Singapore Airlines. Must avoid Singapore Airlines if you have another options.

Disembarkation

Getting off

Cons: "I have encountered missing documents before departure in Singapore to KL. The check in crews very helpful, their knowledge to assist me boarding smoothly. My appreciation towards all crews who have helped me this morning ( SQ106) Big THANK YOU to you ALL."
Cons: "Its sad to see that only the female flight attendants look after the restrooms, no male attendants were seen doing it on both flights. Disappointing in this day and age this still exists."
Pros: "Crews sympathy’s"
Cons: "Disembarking On economy plus we had to wait for all business passengers to leave and there were that needed wheelchair hence took a long time"
Pros: "Amazing crew, very nice and helpful."
Pros: "Super good crew."
Cons: "Having boarded at SYD, during the Canberra stop, we were all required to disembarked. It was a loaded flight so the process was slow"
Pros: "Amazing crew! They handled a full flight with screaming indisciplined kids and clueless adults with grace. Entertainment was great as usual"
Cons: "Singapore food and drinks quality has deteriorated significantly. Flights are always packed with uncomfortable seating. These days you get amenities only if you ask."
Cons: "The seat covers looked worn and dirty. Needs an upgrade."
Cons: "Seats after 1st hr, will feel uncomfortable"
Pros: "everything..Singapore airlines is a amazing airline !!! there is a reason why they are no 1 for so many years..."
Pros: "Handset to control screen didn’t work. Airline reimbursed me with $75 voucher for inflight duty-free shop."
Pros: "Dim sum between Hong Kong & Singapore."
Pros: "Well organized boarding, friendliness of staff, food service"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by about an hour."
Pros: "personel provided excellent service"
Cons: "food was ok. A faulty entertainment system did make our flight feel longer."
Pros: "Nothing beats Singapore SQ!"
Pros: "the boarding, the attention to detail exactly how i remembered Singapore Airlines from many times i travelled."
Cons: "The food was disgraceful, the entertainment, the quality of the movies was poor.."
Pros: "(Previous PE comparisons: Turkish AL, Air NZ, SAS) Ease of check-in, on-time dep/arr, crew attention and responsiveness, seating within the range to be expected of this class."
Cons: "Plane condition: Cosmetic plastic panel below monitor and seat back pocket on Seat 31E fell off when foot rest was lowered; had previously been secured by adhesive tape. Panel removed by crew. In-flight entertainment system: Persistent intermittent loss of sound while listening to movie or TV program. Food: Tried to use "Book the Cook" feature touted by Singapore's website. Was unable to get on site for that purpose. The last try a message appeared (late September) that site was being "rebuilt." On the flight, there was no menu of choices; we were offered 3 vaguely worded choices which boiled down to beef, chicken or vegetables. Those appeared in not particularly appetizing forms and combinations--P.S., we like east and southeast Asian cooking and had just spent 3 weeks in Japan. Failure to provide information about possible delays due to WRG deplaning location at LAX: Although we are frequent fliers to and from LAX, we'd never heard of the WRG. It would have been helpful if the crew had informed us upon arrival that there could possibly be a wait on the plane as buses were used to transport us approximately 1/2 mile to TBIT. Generally: We chose Singapore because of its reputation for excellence. Belying the name of the class, both Turkish AL and Air NZ treated Premium Economy passengers as "junior" business class. Singapore treated us as coach with a roomier cabin and seating pitch."
Cons: "Cabin little bit cold"
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "My seat was very hard"
Pros: "Everything SIA stood for, we experienced it, despite the unfortunate delay which the ground crew couldn't have done much about."
Cons: "Unfortunate delay caused by technical issues. I'm just glad we found it on the ground, instead of in the air. But the delay was REALLY long."
Pros: "Services, the Care and the Concern!"
Cons: "Cabin temperature was really hot."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The cabin crew was awesome.. they are for sure the super stars of the company... I wish all of them all the very best for a very bright future"
Cons: "The service of the airlines is impeccable. But the ground staff near check in were not so. I hope they were a little considerate as I was travelling for a family emergency and had to take all my stuff back as I wasn’t sure what date I would return back. I was over weight but wish they had considered a lil as had to pay an other $300 extra.."
Cons: "I am a vegetarian and they served a chicken piece along with my main course."
Pros: "This time I made the mistake of flying with my kids (4 and 6). The flight or them was last minute (booked less than 8 hours before take off) so there were no pre-planned kids meals etc. The in cabin team were awesome! They made sure they go a choice of meals, that they had things to do, that they were enjoying the flights. This on top of the usual awesome that they have."
Cons: "It's still in Huston. Flying economy isn't the same as flying business but my bank account says I need the cheaper option. Can we please move this flight to DFW instead? :-)"
Pros: "There was nothing to complain about..a very friendly staff, departure on time !"
Cons: "No newspapers and magazines on board !"
Pros: "Natalie is a friendly cheery diligent flight attendant who needs special mention. (Sigapore to Brusane fight 6.1.18)"
Pros: "food. schedule was on time"

Cons: "Announced early landing but then doing circles without any update, we ended up being 30min late. Updates would have been good."
Pros: "the flight schedule are very good"
Cons: "Seats were bit hard without proper head rest.entertainment kiosk was not working."
Cons: "Food was very poor."
Pros: "Delayed flight from Shanghai due to air traffic issues, so I had a 10 minute window to make my connection in Singapore. Ground staff was waiting for me with a small car after I disembarked to drive me to the gate. And I somehow made my connection. Excellent service. Obviously my checked bag didn't make it, but I was told in advance and was kept updated before boarding and immediate after I disembarked at my final destination. When I went to the baggage service counter, they were already ready for me, had filled out my paperwork, and just needed an address to confirm the delivery of my suitcase. I'm super impressed to this attention to detail."
Pros: "Hard to find lounge for bclass users"
Pros: "Touch screen entertainment system with great variety of programs. Good food, clean cabin, friendly crews. I'd fly again on Singapore Air over other domestic airlines and Japanese airlines."
Cons: "Sound quality of ear buds was not good. No issues if you travel with your own."
Pros: "They whole process was just too tiring, especially when passengers were expected to lug around all their packed bags, instead of the airline catering to hold the luggage in the airport holding area"
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "The leg rests didn't have enough room to be useful. I'm only 5'10", which is average, not tall, so they should have had more legroom."
Pros: "Entertainment was great"
Cons: "The food is getting worse"
Pros: "Excellent crew service and entertainment."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, but other than that, flight was great."
Pros: "The graciousness of sraff, entertainment options, cleanliness of the aircraft. Always willing to make adjustments to accommodate."

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The quality of the red wine"

Flight food is not good quality. So improve qty and quality.

Baggage services at JFK and onboarding/check in crew are not available or responsive.

My 12 hour flight had 2 flight attendants for whole back section. I asked for tomato juice and it came after 40 mins, after he completed serving whole section. They gave about 1L of water in 12 hours. Even if asked more- they give half a cup. Food was excellent, headrest of the seats where excellent.

It is always a joy to fly this airline. Good arrive, beautiful aircraft.

Food services wheelchair comfort Maximum help for other flight I really appreciate your services

Better food & beverage required

Pros: "We really enjoyed this airline!"
Pros: "The crew was the best!"
Cons: "I wish food would improve in general on planes"
Pros: "The crew was very good. Seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Running water in the bathroom."
Pros: "Service was okay."
Cons: "Could have been more customer focused!"
Pros: "Qatar Airways is the best first class airline in the world hands down"
Cons: "Nothing they do a great job!!!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "The customer service from Qatar Airways. No one communicates and it was very frustrating to deal with."
Pros: "The service as usual on Qatar is excellent"
Cons: "2-2-2 setup is old style for business class and while the seats were nice it means either you are stuck by the window or need to move to let others out in the aisle"
Pros: "Nothing amazing. Everything was okay and average."
Cons: "They weighed carry on baggage and made me pay extra. No other airline does that. The check in crew at LAX were not friendly at all. No hot towel service after boarding. Food served was very small portion, not enough. Only 2 meal service during 16 hour flight. Not enough beverage service in between."
Pros: "Great crew, aircraft etc"
Cons: "General - King Hamad airport is brand new and yet there still aren't enough gates to comfortably service all QA aircraft."
Cons: "For deboarding they used stairs (not ramps) at their hub in Doha - must be some sort of new innovation to improve fitness. The Wifi onboard was in name only - it was so slow you wouldn't notice it is working or not - i flew Qatar because they claimed to have Wifi- hugely disappointed."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and helpful, aircrafts were all comfortable, food was incredible. If I could only ever fly one airline again I would pick Qatar!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Of all the flights and airlines I have used this was definitely the top of my list . The aircraft was clean , the crew were polite, curious, and attentive nothing was too much trouble. The food looked good tasted good and was plentiful. The pyjama were a nice added touch and very comfortable for the long flight. Flying into Cardiff airport was so good for my intended destination. I would certainly recommend them to others and many airlines could learn from their example.Well done and thank you"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like about this flight"
Pros: "I really like the Qatar flight from Auckland to Manchester. But beware now that the Akl leg leaves 1 hour later the transit in Doha is officially 1.15hr. But since the first leg is always getting in and you have to bus to the terminal, transit time is about 30 mins. Although they are efficient and i made it this time, i wouldn't want to do this with kids."
Cons: "Short transit time"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and polite. The flights were on time, and the entertainment options were good. The Doha airport is quite nice, with many eating and retail options. although everything is very expensive, even by airport standards."
Cons: "My wife and I personally don't mind a selection that leans heavily toward Indian food, but I imagine others will not. The main courses were mediocre and the "sandwich" offered between meals on the 13+ hour flight was cold, soggy and inedible. The seats on our A350 were hard and not very comfortable, and the recline function was difficult to operate. Security at the Doha airport was confusing. We had to go through 3 separate checkpoints for our transfer, each with different rules and procedures. The final check at our departure gate was the worst, with impatient officials giving hurried instructions in heavily-accented English, and scolding if passengers didn't understand. I was sent back through a second time to remove my camera from the bag (and to be scolded by the agent), and was patted down a second time coming back through the x-ray, which had green-lighted me both times. It made me wonder if this was a reaction to the extra scrutiny that Arab passengers receive from our airport security in the USA."
Pros: "Attention to detail. Very professional."
Pros: "legroom"
Cons: "being in the middle of three"
Pros: "The crew was FANTASTIC!! SO kind and helpful, and went out of their way the whole flight to assist us with anything and everything we needed! :)"
Cons: "There was a person name Manzoor at Lahore airport working with Qatar Airways ticketing he was asking me to pay him $50 to help me get boarding pass. i will also contact Qatar Airways about this incident if this issue is not going to forward to the airline please let me know."
Pros: "great service from flight attendnants."
Cons: "Old aircraft for flight from Doha to Nairobi, no personal entertainment etc."
Pros: "The on flight entertainment is great. It’s very accommodating especially for long flights."
Cons: "Onboarding was ridiculous. They merged two gates together with no instructions to the large crowd of people boarding the plane. We were scheduled to start boarding at a certain time and we didn’t actually board until 45 minutes later. When we asked the attendants when we would begin boarding and did they have any instructions they were extremely rude, laughing with one another and taking selfies. When we we asked for the third time they brushed us off with a time frame. It was extremely disappointing."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff."
Cons: "No entertainment available. A very old plane."
Cons: "My seat would not go back. The food was all carbohydrates and quite cool instead of warm. There was only one tiny piece of chicken in chicken roll."
Pros: "Friendly and genuine staff. Clean plane. Staff were well organised."
Cons: "Headphones didn’t fit my head and began to hurt my ears. Media cut out a lot."
Cons: "Connecting Qatar flight should have been held, instead wen had to spend 9 hours in the airport until next flight"
Pros: "Never spending too long waiting for anything."
Cons: "More realistic options to upgrade. Example I can board a train in London and upgrade to first class for £20 to Edinburgh. If you have a coach class or business class empty. Have capacity to feed extra or not. Last minute upgrades can be both a revenue stream and another option to further satisfy some customers. Particularly older generations that can afford and would fund such a win win appealing."
Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "All crew were nice"
Cons: "Diabetic food not palatable,. No Mango juice, did not serve Diabetic meal earlier. I had hypoglycemia.."
Pros: "Doha to hyd was good. Crew was courteous."
Cons: "Even after online checkin. Just to drop the bags it took 1 hr. The thin old black lady at the baggage drop off counter was very partial in treating people. She allowed a black male take 27.8 kgs but asked us to adjust our bags when we had 23 kgs. Also if the passenger is allowed to carry a laptop bag, according to her training and theory she only knows 1 shape and does not recognize a back pack which has only the laptop. I travelled several times in Qatar, but never had this kind of experience."
Pros: "This has been one the good experience I had in so many years of travel"
Cons: "I requested a special meal but was not given what I wanted. But overall decent food"
Pros: "Gate crew was great"
Cons: "Boarding seemed haphazard as it took quite awhile for all of the pasengers to stow their luggage and settle down."
Pros: "Overall"
Cons: "Overall"
Cons: "More veriaty on music would be good"
Pros: "I enjoyed my flight overall with good service by the attendants. Additionally, the food quality was good for an economy meal."
Cons: "long layover and very tight seat conditions were my only big complaints."
Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that on now 3 flights I have lost miles, as on every flight I have tried to sign on as a member or frequent flyer and on all flights, there were no entry forms. This is also after my attempt to complete one on line, which I have had no response to."
Pros: "Got upgraded to Business Class :-)"
Cons: "Not much of Movies options to watch"
Cons: "Long flight on a 777-200. Crowded aircraft, crew not very attentive to call light, and food mediocre at best. Entertainment service was horrible, old movies and typical Qatar Airline selection of Bollywood films (Expected when flying from Doha, but not New Zealand!) Seat would not recline, but no option to move to another isle seat."
Pros: "The business cabin and the customer service was superb."
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Generally good experience at least as far as a very long flight with two children can go. Good food with plenty and quite healthy snacks for kids. Very friendly and attentive crew, comparably comfortable seats, clean and comfortable bathrooms (what not always has been my experience with other airlines)"
Cons: "Due to a misunderstanding at check-in we have been seated away from a baby bassinette (although booked) to sit together with my husband, nobody asked what my preference would be (sitting as a whole family or having a bassinette) and a 17-hour flight with a 9month old baby constantly on my lap was challenging. Also a very disappointing selection of films and documentaries for adults. I ended watching a kids movie with my older daughter and it was the only thing I found appealing. Kids section very good though, my 5-year old was glued to the screen and all the options had my approval :)"
Pros: "Didnt have food My mother has diabetes and she had one meal in her 14 hr flight Unacceptable"
Cons: "Meal plan customer service"
Pros: "Being able to ear what you want and when you want it made my flight so much more enjoyable. You can ask for anything on the menu and the flight attendants are so attentive."
Cons: "Boarding in Qatar was a bit disorganised."
Pros: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "I had a torn budd/hamstring muscle and an upgrade to another class would have been great because I was in constant pain. Hopefully, when I return in a few days - this could be arranged?"
Cons: "We didnt travel on qatar airlines we travelled on airlines from chilie but the staff from qatar airlines"
Pros: "Seats were roomy and leaned back quite comfortably. The gluten free meals I had were fantastic, which I've never said before of an airplane , even regular meals."

Bread stale. Croissant stale. Person behind me was kicking me throughout flight. Boarding slow.

For a long journey, left on subbusiness class where the fully reclaining seat makes all the difference.

Except constant choice of pasta and horrible salads, Lufthansa was excellent. Post Covid optimizations a savings don’t work so well. Understand company needs to survive.

Cons: "With the coronavirus breakout it was better if they pass disinfectant wipes especially before meals"
Pros: "Yes super crew and super seat. ( next to empty seat) Nice new plane"
Cons: "This one couldn’t have been better. Plenty of food snacks and drinks"
Pros: "-"
Cons: "Will never use Lufthansa again"
Cons: "Delayed flight made me miss my connection and spend a night in Frankfurt. Take off time, bag didn’t come out as priority, waited over 25 minutes."
Pros: "Crew very nice"
Cons: "Connecting flight time was half hour and at other side if airport- not fun at all. Barely made flight home"
Pros: "Horrible seating, boarding was a mess, not sure what flight to get on!!"
Cons: "Don't fly United"
Pros: "Lufthansa is a friendly airline but was unable to help with our problem because I had booked through Kayak."
Cons: "When I presented my passport at the counter to receive my boarding pass, I was told my passport needed to be over 3 months before expiration. It expires January 14, 2019. It is not written on the passport, nor mentioned during booking. I’ve been to Latvia four times previously and never heard this requirement. I cancelled the flight with Lufthansa who said I must call Kayak who gave me another number to call and that number then sent an email that said there was a $350 rebooking fee for each ticket, IF they decided I was eligible for rebooking. Yes, we got a great rate, but looks like wasted $ now. I will book directly with the airline in the future to ensure the ability to rebook."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"
Pros: "Lufthansa is a great airline. My problem is Kayak, who sold the tickets to us."
Cons: "You, Kayak, sold me economy tickets. When I checked in online I saw it for the first time that our tickets were Economy Light. So even though we are Frequent Flyers, we payed $220 for three checkin luggages. I intend to dispute this case."
Cons: "We were unable to fly this trip due to United cancelling our flight."
Cons: "never got to goddamn frankfurt"
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work most of flight and when it did required payment."
Cons: "Delay and food was bad"
Pros: "Attendants very nice. Movie selection...OK....not great ON TIME!...except"
Cons: "Food mediocre in economy class Seat back in front of me was stuck in non upright position by 1.5 inches which made me feel uncomfortable...too cramped. Pilot landed us early & then we sat on tarmac for 30 mins + because gate wasn't ready!"
Cons: "Delayed in plane almost an hour after landing before being allowed to deplane"
Pros: "Arriving on time."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Pros: "Friendly crew, on time boarding. Food decent."
Cons: "Wife n I was seated separate; I was assuming management would understand we were travelling together, seat was cramp. Meals was served far apart in timing or closed to landing on last meal."
Cons: "It took ages to go through the security check, although I have mentioned that I have a flight connection that is due to leave nobody gave a s..t, so I missed my flight. Now I’m waiting at the airport"
Pros: "Flight crew, including air-hostesses were very polite, accomodating, and helpful. Entertainment system consisted of a big screen LED."
Pros: "Food. Variety of entertainment. Flight had empty seats."
Cons: "Over an hour delay sitting with bad air quality. At least it was only 20 minutes late so I didn't miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "Everything was perfect ... pilots are so good and professional..!!)"
Pros: "Efficient crew. Quick service, quick flight."
Cons: "No negatives."
Pros: "Quiet comfortable flight"
Cons: "Unorganized biarding and no labeling on hallway what direction to take."

Cons: "I wish boarding by Priority was better organized"
Pros: "Friendly crew, nice food and wine."
Pros: "Great flight crew, very friendly. Was just slightly alarmed that my friends and I never once had to show ID or passport to get onto the plane, especially given the current turmoil in europe. otherwise, enjoyed the flight and will fly more"
Cons: "Due to repair aircraft equipmen, almost 1h delay my flight."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment options, beverage service, and leg room."
Cons: "I paid to reserve an upgraded seat. I specifically asked for a window seat and even have a confirmation email saying that I got a window seat (27 A). However, when I checked in, I was assigned a middle seat and the representatives at the ticket counter tried to tell me that was my preference. They tilde me to take it up with customer relations. If I pay $100 for a particular seat, I should get that seat!"
Pros: "I specifically booked this flight for the 8 hr layover so I could go downtown Munchen. the Plane was 4 hrs late leaving Edinburgh!! what is there to like? nothing."
Cons: "regardless of the late takeoff from Edinburgh, your boarding procedures are like a 3rd world airport. the food was 1/3 of a sandwich. that's food? no entertainment on board of course. why do I pay $500 for such flights? I'll go Ryanair from now on!"
Pros: "Friendly staff, good food, free wine, comfy (as can be expected) seats AND AMAZING LANDING into Munich. OH! Good movie selection too!"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Clean, friendly environment, friendly staff, even though a bit bossy, but that's the German way (which I am too)."
Cons: "Little space. and NO WIFI. This is really no longer adequate in 2017. In the US, practically all domestic flights have wifi now."
Pros: "Service was excellent. Planes were very nice and food was very good for airplane food. I would highly recommend flying Lufthansa. Staff was excellent."
Cons: "Service was excellent. Planes were very nice and food was very good for airplane food. I would highly recommend flying Lufthansa. Staff was excellent."

Cons: "Late boarding after allowing priority customer to board, Crew then took ages to start to finish boarding and taxi , Plane sent to furtherest runway, Made little time up,"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Old plane. Bad food. Small seats. Obsolete entertainment system. Hate United!"
Pros: "Very comfortable"
Cons: "Delay"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "I have not even had this trip because the Lufthansa denied my boarding and canceled and rest of the trip"
Pros: "My flight from Frankfurt to Detroit on Lufthansa was very enjoyable. The crew were great. They were very friendly and attentive to the passengers. I would choose to fly on Lufthansa again in the future."
Cons: "We were delayed by complicated connection from Vienna train station to Vienna airport, by the time we arrived, we missed our flight. We called your customer service, and a recording stated that we would get a reply within 48 hrs. We contacted website customer service and it stated that we would get a reply within 48 hrs. We needed immediate assistance from a HUMAN BEING to change our reservation, that was impossible. We were forced to purchase new tickets, the cost was $2,500, we had to stay overnight in a nearby hotel, the cost was $220. We are returning one day later than planned all because we could not reach you."
Pros: "Helpful ground personnel - seems like this connection issue happens often"
Cons: "Leaving Frankfurt late....hanging around airport waiting for a rebook"
Pros: "Flights were on time. Both Air Canada and Lufthansa Airlines Service, including sitting and boarding process were relatively smooth."
Cons: "12 hour long flight from Frankfurt to LA was exhausting."
Pros: "Every things"
Pros: "All was very proffessional"
Pros: "Again, excellent customer service. Can't say enough."
Cons: "The screen was really close got me dizzy when I had to put my seat back to upright position for meal and drinks"
Pros: "The boarding process and flight was smooth and punctual"
Cons: "We were stuck on the plane for over an hour after we landed in Munich without enough updates on the situation. We waited for the stairs and bus to come then when we got to the terminal our bags did not come and I had to get my baggage shipped. This was very inconvenient and there was not any notification for the baggage delay."

Disembarking much better and safer when controlled by flight attendant

Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "Crew was not very friendly."
Cons: "On time"
Pros: "There was a special needs boy that sat behind me and he had some issues (long flight, understandable) and the crew were AMAZING with him. Not everyone has common or even human decency. These people were rad, and it was lovely to see."
Cons: "We went to Gatwick(75.00 Uber) to reschedule in person and we were told there were no refunds and if we wanted to change it would be 250 pounds. It is my wife’s and my 35 year anniversary and this wants a mood dampener"
Pros: "Pilot was friendly and addressed the crew and passengers multiple times with updates."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Politeness during check-in, timeliness in providing gate information, having a person at the BA desk to help, being on time"
Pros: "For the most part the people and workers were very nice"
Cons: "Couldn’t add baggage with the ticket bought online. Once I did it cost $100 to add 1 bag. Checking in process was the worst, as many kiosks didn’t work and the software seemed buggy."
Cons: "Constantly late! Unreliable and missed my connecting flight, AGAIN!!! 4 out of last 10 flights I have had lost luggage. No apology, it’s “just BA”."
Pros: "BAc- great brand and very professional."
Cons: "Nothing for me"
Pros: "Fab flight in every way"
Pros: "Flight screens showed info"
Cons: "Bring back free food ba"
Cons: "Had no idea we had not payed to check a bag. Could have paid online prior to boarding for 30 pounds, but because we did not know, had to pay 65 pounds in order to check a bag at the airport. I am extremely dissatisfied with this flight and with British airways in general. I wish I would have known about the baggage and I could have saved myself a LOT of money. British airway crew were rude and unhelpful. I will not be flying with them again."
Cons: "A 2-hour layover was too short. We experienced crazy long lines for: the bus between terminals, immigration passport review; passport review before the metal detector, and detailed tests on permitted volumes of shampo, and toothpaste. The agent forced me to check a normally permitted carryon bag, then the bags took 45 minutes to be placed on the turnstile after the flight. Not an efficient airport."
Pros: "This is a no frills BA flight, but I'd rather do fly with BA than the other options. You have to pay for food and drink, the quality of crew far exceeds the usual low cost dross."
Cons: "Nothing for the price. Although my preference would be BA via London City."
Cons: "The connection was not good too little time between flights also the American Airlines desk was hidden. We had to get boarding passes at the exit gate. There should have been a rep to guide passengers to desk."
Pros: "Quickness of flight."
Cons: "Came round collecting cups etc within minutes of being served. No sky shop. And I was sitting in 3rd row (by choice) but didn't know I would have a curtain inches from my face for most of the journey."
Cons: "One piece of luggage was left at Heathrow. It arrived on the next flight so it turned out ok but was stressful for an hour."
Pros: "Good for leg room and nice and the seats are comfy and wide too. Still get a free drink and snack on this flight and the service was friendly and efficient throughout. We were very quick to board and flight landed early, so very happy."
Cons: "I'm guessing this plane was stopping in EDI for the night, so it parked way, way away from the terminal, so we had an extra 15 minutes none of us had been expecting to wait for the bus and transfer."
Pros: "The seat was fine. the flight was as expected."
Cons: "expectation that one will fly with only one carry-on bag and not receive any food or beverage during the flight. industry trend is ridiculous ..."
Pros: "Much quieter than Heathrow so a more relaxed environment to travel. Flight left slightly late but made up time and landed ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Having to pay for a cup of tea. No issue with BA charging for alcolhol in a 1 hour flight but still think drinks like tea/coffee should be provided free."
Pros: "Crew was mostly kind and helpful. My bags arrived at their final destination."
Cons: "I was told that I had to check my bag because it would not fit in the overhead bin. When I got on the plane I found that the overhead bins were ample sized for my hiking pack. I know that British Airways has a policy regarding bags in overhead bins that basically says 'if you cannot lift your bag into the overhead bin un-assisted, you must check your bag.' My husband and I are both experienced hikers, we lifted our packs unassisted on the last plane, yet they forced us to check our bags. I'm glad our bags made it to the UK, but this is literally the first time I've checked a bag and had it arrive. Also, the boarding passes sent to me on my phone were rejected by almost every security/boarding check. This is after BA supposedly fixed their error with the previous boarding passes. Overall not pleased with the experience but glad I paid under $300 for my ticket."
Cons: "Everything was sub par with BA. We upgraded to world traveler plus and the seats were old, there was trash from the previous flight and the tv screens were from 1995. The movies are only on loop so when you take off and are finally allowed to turn on the tv, the movies are 25 minutes in. All around a waste of money. Will never fly BA AGAIN!!"
Pros: "Staff and Crew amazing and very friendly on this trip"
Cons: "Nothing negative to report best flight for some time"
Cons: "Left late. Everything was unorganized."
Cons: "As requested checked my bag in and it took an absolute age to get my bag in Edinburgh. I ordered a toastie it was lukewarm"
Pros: "Amazing service in club Europe"
Cons: "Nothing to say"
Pros: "Cabin crew"
Cons: "Boarded on a bus"
Pros: "Last minute flight (booked 4 hours before departure), one way, economy, for €99 from Amsterdam to Edinburgh via Gatwick. Long layover at Gatwick (around 3 hours), but I had much work to do anyway, so time went faster than I realised. Not sure if this was the case at Schiphol, but at Gatwick had priority security queue as a BA customer."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Overpriced and outperformed by the Budget Airlines."
Pros: "Comfortable enough seats"
Cons: "Not even drinks were served"
Cons: "could not even get water to drink without purchasing"
Pros: "Even on a short flight, you can feel a difference with the crew. This one was very good."
Cons: "security in Heathrow was AWFUL. There was only ONE person working to screen luggage AND check luggage that was questionable. There wee 15 people waiting for luggage who almost missed their connections. I sprinted through the airport and made my connection with 2 minutes to spare."
Cons: "No hay entretenimiento"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Luggage delayed."
Cons: "Did not get the seats I paid for"
Pros: "Was not made aware of baggage policy. Their regular policy allows one checked baggage but not our ticket. Was not prompted when doing online check in and led to me paying almost 200 pounds for luggage. Just ridiculous!"
Cons: "Baggage policy not clear - good way to force customers to pay more and help their revenue!"
Pros: "Boarding was straight forward with the automated scanning of boarding pass."
Cons: "I was totally taken aback that I had to pay for tea and coffee. After having to pay for baggage and to reserve my seat for the flight. At least beverages could have been offered at no additional cost. Very disappointed with BA."
Pros: "The 1 hr flight"
Cons: "They charged 3.50£ for tea"
Pros: "Comfort of plane"
Cons: "No indication given of delay. kayak knew before ground staff. On arrival parked at cargo terminal and had to get bus. Then stuck on bus for 10 minutes as could not get terminal fooors open. They turned heating up at full blast with no air. Surprised nobody passed out"
Pros: "I was travelling alone with a baby and a toddler and found most of the staff very helpful - stowing my bags, helping to carry my buggy, helping with seat belts etc."
Cons: "A member of staff at the gate referred to my 2 year old daughter as "a difficult child" to another member of staff because she didn't like having her photo taken. I felt it was very rude and unfair, particularly as I had to lift her to an awkward height (whilst also holding a baby) as the camera was in a fixed position. It was clear the staff member didn't have children herself!"
Pros: "I received an email cancelling the flight before I left home."
Cons: "Last minute cancellation of the flight by BA meant I was unable to attend the event I was booked on. Have found service has definitely declined on recent BA flights I've travelled on. Check in staff are good though."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I arrived about 45 mins before the departure time and they refused to let my 85 year old sick dad in a wheel chair board. They did not assist him in rebooking and we had to sleep in the airport to catch an Easy jet in the morning as all hotels were fully booked. This is about the worst service I have ever encountered and I would like a full refund Thanks Charles"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the crew helpful."
Cons: "More than an hour late in taking off, and the food is almost inedible - get the Air Canada chef on board!"
Pros: "Slept most of the way. Cabin looked new, so that was nice."
Cons: "Having to gate check my bag even though it fit in the overhead bin."
Cons: "Did not like that I thought it was a BA flight but was really a EI flight , which means I had to get a boarding pass but I was sure was on BA and almost went to there booking counter to get boarding pass."
Pros: "Nothing. At. All."
Cons: "This was a nightmare. BA had no flights available to Edinburgh. Booked on 3 separate flights at 2 different airports. Last one was canceled outright. After being awake for 28 hours and traveling for 15, we finally were given a hotel room for the night in London. Still trying to get to Edinburgh."
Cons: "Couldn't say as the flight was cancelled on arrival in LHR. Took 5hrs and 8 seperate question to discover what was going on and to be offered a flight to Glasgow as an alternative. The flight to Glasgow also took of late arriving at 2310 local. Europecar were great hired a Mercedes E220 with a gps to complete the journey to Edinburgh, at a cost of 600GBP for 3 1/2 days including fuel. Arrived 8hrs late, seriously affecting sleep patterns and ruining an already tight schedule. BA could have met us exiting ac from LAS in T5 explained situation, new boarding cards etc, total fail, should have booked flight with Lufthansa to EDI via Frankfurt for 600USD less. BA Staff comments such as " I'm sorry I haven't been trained for this situation, I can't help you after 40 minutes" etc Total lack of staff available and able to assist, super poor knowledge, massive queues not moving."

When our flight was delayed, I mentioned about the reality of possibly missing our next flight. The air hostess asked whether we had booked all the way with AirNZ. When I answered no, but with a Star Alliance member (United Airlines), she didn't seem to care. I wonder at the purpose of the Star Alliance.

Delayed on the tarmac for over two hours.

Flight was 2 hours delayed taking off. Originating flight was late coming in.

Just want courteous, timely service. We got that! I like that they kept us informed as well.

I was ticketed to fly next to my wife, they then switched my seat for some reason and didn't put us together (empty emergency row available).

Everyone was really helpfull. I hurt my leg and had a hard time walking. The staff was really nice during bording and made sure I was ok. Thank you!

Cons: "For United to go out of business"
Pros: "The staff was nice and helpful"
Cons: "The seats are not comfortable and not enough space. Not ideal for a long flight"
Pros: "Flight was faster than expected."
Cons: "Stuck with a window seat next to a couple on a group tour. She spilled into my seat so we kept jockeying for better comfort next to each other."
Pros: "What’s to like about flying commercial economy ? The chicken meal was tasty though."
Cons: "45 min delay boarding because the catering was late. Room in the seats. Plug between seats was not very reliable."
Pros: "Very efficient service and crew."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment skipped a lot and sound was bad. Flight felt very busy overall for a red-eye... Difficult to sleep."
Cons: "Service for people not able to sleep on the long haul"
Pros: "The staff was accommodating and worked hard to make us more comfortable and be helpful when possible- there was a lot of turbulence so dinner was served late and there was a lot of time we couldn't move about but they made the best of it."
Cons: "The added benefits of the Air New Zealand long flight planes of the entertainment like mini games and the footrest into bed as well as my husband and I not being seated in between two people but being on one side or the other."
Cons: "This flight was not a Lufthansa flight as advertised. It was a United flight. And they changed the plane, I believe. The two aisle seats I reserved ended up being a middle and a window seat. Grrr..."
Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable but overall not bad."
Cons: "Food ran out and only one choice"
Pros: "The crew was very good."
Cons: "The foot room could be better for lying on you side."
Pros: "After United lost our luggage in Houston we had to file a claim in Auckland which meant we missed our flight to Wellington. Ground crew were super helpful and got us on the next flight 30 mins later. Cabin crew were great and sorted us out with water and snacks before take off as could tell we were desperate after flying in from London via Houston."
Cons: "-"
Pros: "The flight was fine, despite the distance."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Dirty seat, broken screen & headphone socket."
Pros: "Early morning departures are the best and the crew and boarding staff were fantastic"
Pros: "good planes, smooth ride"
Cons: "What I wrote above was meant to describe our experience from Chicago to Burlington- not Milwaukee to Chicago. Although, we had a delay in Milwaukee too. Overall, everything was only fair"
Cons: "they changed our flight without notifying us! they messed up our seats and asked my mother to deplane! when we were flying with twin babies! they also gave us grief about gate checking something on the trip home that we had no problems with on the way there. honestly i will never fly united again."
Pros: "We made it to our destination on time"
Cons: "Extremely cramped seating. Terrible food"
Pros: "No one was in my row, so I had the opportunity to lay down and stretch out!"
Cons: "The crew didn’t seem to inviting. There was one woman who was very kind... but other than that, they all seemed like they hated thief jobs... the food was very bland."
Pros: "United staff worked with me to book a round-about itinerary on a different airline that got me to my destination within 8 hours of the original flight. Progress announcements were made at regular, predictable intervals."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled an hour after scheduled takeoff due to mechanical issues. The plane was actually repaired, but the time it took to do so exceeded the flight crew's hours. I understand the practical implications, but in the moment it did feel maddeningly bureaucratic."
Pros: "Entertainment was actually good"
Cons: "Not very good food but I guess they gave ice cream so maybe that made up for it? Not super comfortable seats/room."
Pros: "The movie choices were the only saving grace."
Cons: "They split up my family and were not accommodating in helping to find seats near each other. Flight attendants were rude. Requested a veggie meal and got chicken. Seats didn't recline."
Pros: "Will never fly UNITED again no matter how cheap!!!!!"
Cons: "Will never fly UNITED again no matter how cheap!!!!!"
Pros: "Emailing me with updates"
Pros: "While it was a long flight it was comfortable and surprisingly the food was good."
Cons: "We ran late as the plane needed some work on it before we could take off; when it was finally done there was a storm and could not take off again. We were behind over an hour before we could leave but we made up for in as we had good tail wind."
Pros: "No complaints here! The Air New Zealand staff were amazing. They did their jobs really well! They made everyone comfortable during the trip."
Cons: "My booking confirmation told me we were on Lufthansa flight #7644 so naturally we went to the Lufthansa terminal at the airport. We waited in line to check in and were then redirected to a different terminal because we were actually flying United. How did that happen and why wasn't it explained ahead of time? The seat was too small for an international flight and the entertainment was unwatchable because there was a constant screeching sound in the headphones, a problem with the jack."
Pros: "No problems"
Cons: "Would have been nice to have more room"
Pros: "First leg of journey cancelled because of weather, so we drove to ORD. Phone agents were nice, helpful, and effective."
Cons: "Somehow, airplane food keeps getting worse. There's got to be a bottom somewhere, but we haven't found it yet."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and lights left on so I couldn't sleep."
Cons: "Food was embarrassingly poor I would rather pay additional fees to upgrade to s quality meal Bags in Edinburgh took over an hour and a half to retrieve But, the flight was safe and the crew very good"
Pros: "Great flight friendly person sitting beside me, would like seat towards front but my husband likes sitting in back , we had seats in row 27 & window seat for him he likes looking out. It was very enjoyable. Thank you"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful especially with looking up connecting flights due to most people missing their connection."
Cons: "The delay, but what can you do. The seats are not comfortable when you're short."
Cons: "Need more leg room and more movie options. Also crew needs to be a little nicer lol"
Pros: "Everything was fine except I barely made the flight in Chicago.when arriving in Charlotte I had to wait about 10 or 15 minutes for a wheel chair to get off the plane."
Cons: "Having to wait on a wheelchair so long in Chicago I almost missed my flight and having to wait so long for a wheelchair when I arrived in Charlotte."
Cons: "Polaris Biz servie was worse than old biz class service. Only six salmon dinners aboard! Cabin crew needed to asked for many standard items. After dinner service, they were invisible. Brkfst was rushed in last hour before touch down. This was a real disappointment after an excellent flight from LAX to MEL! We can fly AA for such service at a lower price!"
Pros: "Crew was great, food was good, and had a superb entertainment selection."
Cons: "Comfort was as issue, I was assigned more leg room at the emergency row and the wall would be pushing against me, forcing me to go towards my neighbors side. Also, I had initially picked the last row to sit on, which was stated on my itinerary but when I printed my boarding pass, I got assigned middle of plane - which I did not understand nor complain about."
Cons: "One of the male crew was not too friendly. He never smiled. The other attendant was more pleasant."
Pros: "The flight attendant did the best he could knowing I was uncomfortably hot and there was nothing I could do. He gave me an extra ice cream to help :)"
Cons: "Complained to flight attendant about RIDICULOUSLY high temperature of the air craft. Flight attendants told me they had already requested the pilots turn the head down twice. The temperature of the plane made me extremely uncomfortable and unhappy."
Pros: "We left nearly on time, arrived on time and had a pleasant comfortable flight. I went to sleep early and skipped the food and drink, so I cannot comment on this aspect of the flight."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Arrived a bit early to the destination."
Cons: "Every time the crew came by with something (more food, duty free, custom forms) (which seemed very regularly) it was announced over the intercom so it made sleeping very difficult on the 11 hour red eye flight. Other airlines will just walk by and catch your eye if you are awake. Seats were quite small as well."
Pros: "Standard average flight"
Pros: "I like the entertainment screen and the food was tasty"
Cons: "My seat...not being able to pick an aisle seat. Also the passenger behind me kept doing something with her seat pocket and I could feel that everytime. Need more padding there. And halfway through the flight the screen quit working."
