Pros: "I flew Qatar from Doha to NYC and the meal quality and options were excellent. I also enjoyed the amount of new Hollywood movie releases and music options."
Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."

Cons: "In Bangkok, I've already checked in on line and all I have to do was drop off my bag and get a boarding pass. There was one to two person doing the checked in and it took about 40 minutes to get done, unacceptable. The lines for non on line check in went faster then the on-line and they have four times more people that was in the on-line checked in. In flight, the seat felt liked you're sitting on a rock after a couple of hours. I'm an aircraft mechanic who used to be a flyer with 7,000 flying hours."
Cons: "They never gave my baby's stroller when I landed at my destination..i.e. Houston. They said I have to pick it up only at baggage claim..and I had to carry my baby with 2 hand luggages all the way through immigration until I reached baggage claim...very disappointed with this. ..Other airlines handed the baby stroller as soon as you got off from the flight.."

Cons: "Food was not what I’m used to on Lufthansa"
Pros: "The crew was helpful and nice."
Cons: "Nothing really."

Pros: "Loved it!"

Pros: "Great crew and on time."
Cons: "Seating a bit cramped"
Cons: "I was rebooked onto LU 1203 from Basel to Frankfurt from LU 1201 without notification. Probably because Flight LU 426"
Pros: "The plane was very clean and I appreciated when the crew asked passengers have their seats in a normal upright position during meal times as there is very little space when the seats are reclined. We can hardly get out of our seats when other passengers need to go to the restrooms."
Cons: "The crew was rather cold; I got the feeling they were doing their jobs but not in a warm and customer friendly oriented way, may be because I was in Economy. I was surprised by the lack of space in economy for such a long Haul flight in an A 380."
Pros: "It was a short flight."
Cons: "I was allergic to ingredients in the in-flight meal. There were no additional options left by the time food got to me. The crew was indifferent about my allergy and seemed offended when I returned the food uneaten."
Cons: "You lost my luggage !!"
Pros: "The flight was very good"
Pros: "Staff were nice and friendly."
Cons: "The plane was dirty. The seatback was not clean, and the tray table was stained. The 9-hour flight did not have any USB ports or outlets for charging. The touchscreen did not work well, and my seat would not move forward or back without me pushing or pulling it. This"
Pros: "Great service and food."
Cons: "after the fact, improperly disclosed baggage charge excessive and no opportunity to pay on line and avoid the charge at the airport."
Pros: "Great crew. Leg room reminded me of old days flying comfort."

Cons: "Seats and seat space are shrinking, s not super comfortable."
Pros: "The sandwich was ok. Flight attendant was just fine as well."
Cons: "The plane was delayed for no apparent or known reason. Took forever to board and then we missed our connecting flight. I have no need to fly Luthansa again. Get what you pay for with bottom of the barrel airlines I guess."

Cons: "I liked everything."
Cons: "cramped. people are getting taller and taller. seats are getting closer to each other."

Pros: "I liked the process this time because I didnt miss the flight (unlike last time when lufthansa workers denied us to go to the front of the line at passport checkpoint) IN PRAGUE CHECK IN PEOPLE WERE WONDERFUL!"
Cons: "Nice crew"
Cons: "since my flight was canceled, I did not stay in the hotel and i still had to pay for it! Lufthansa or brussels or both, screw you!"
Pros: "Nice crew, made an effort to find a special meal that was ordered for the original connecting flight and was not transferred to the alternate flight since I boarded on standby."
Cons: "Had to sit on a window seat since due to a delayed previous flight I missed my connection and boarded on standby. I have long legs and it was extremely uncomfortable and painful to sit there."
Cons: "Seats were very cramped in economy. A big factor on a 10 hour flight."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable."
Cons: "This long haul flight was on an Airbus plane with five restrooms in the basement. There was not enough space to accommodate people waiting in the basement so people had to stand on stairs or by the galley. Flight attendants kept on telling people not to do so but there was simply not enough space."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and efficient. Food was not bad."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "-- > Multiple (4) gate changes"
Pros: "Great service and relaxing flight"
Cons: "Ground crew in Warsaw made me feel unwelcome. The harassment and discrimination I have experienced was unacceptable."
Pros: "Everything about Lufthansa is amazing, and I wish all airlines could perform the same way Lufthansa does. The service is incredible, unlimited free drinks (including wine, beer), great movie choices, and plenty of room. Whenever I go to Europe I try to fly Lufthansa because they never disappoint. Wish American Airline companies were the same!"
Pros: "Everything was excellent but the food could be better especially from Lagos to Frankfurt"

Pros: "None respect for customers specially long flight"
Cons: "Seats are too small and pitch is too short."
Pros: "No real complaints. Pretty decent international coach service. This was a code share on United. Vegetarian meal exceeded my rather low expectations. Entertainment was top notch... plenty of movies to choose from."
Cons: "My only critique is that the crew could have been a lot friendlier. I am always very pleasant to the crew and expect the same in return."
Pros: "Boarding, crew, and comfort was good. It wasn't really their fault the turbulence was bad, so I'm not complaining about that. Entertainment was magazines, but it was a forty minute flight, so I didn't expect anything fancy."
Cons: "Even though the flight was short, something more interesting than a sales magazine might have been nice. I don't need anything electronic, but sheesh, give me a Highlighters or something!"
Pros: "clean bathroom. comfortable seats"
Pros: "Great crew."
Pros: "We were early"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Seat didn’t recline..."
Pros: "It was very comfortable."
Cons: "If my actual flight hadn’t gotten cancelled. Also my tv didn’t latch, so it rattled a lot and when the people talked on the speaker, if you were plugged in, im pretty sure it would cause hearing damage...."
Cons: "Food/drinks extra cost, seat was broken and uncomfortable. Flight delayed and caused me to miss my int’l connection."
Pros: "Easy boarding, friendly crew, good food"
Cons: "Nothing to report"
Pros: "amazing crew"
Cons: "nothing it was perfect"
Pros: "Did not take it"
Cons: "At Heathrow, the boarding agents kept calling few passengers without letting the rest of the passengers know what was going on. Also the boarding was delayed without giving specific reason almost 50 min later. Finallly they said the boarding was delayed to catering and cleanning, which I could not believe since the plane has been on a tarmac close to an hour. Passengers were lining up to board, but one of the gate agent kept asking to sit down without giving any reason. Probable one of the worst boarding experience I have ever had in international flights."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Friendly, attentive and knowledgeable staff. Good light supper."
Pros: "Direct flight to Austin"
Cons: "Food needs improvement"
Pros: "The orderly manner in boarding & customer service"

Cons: "It’s the old 2-4-2 row setup. Nobody likes being in one of the two middle seats. We booked through AA which meant we couldn’t check-in online on ba.com. We got what was left."
Pros: "No fuss, the cost benifit is perfect for short distances flights"
Cons: "One of the planes was a A321, room for legs was short"
Pros: "Flight crew was great."

Pros: "Very comfortable flight , cabin crew were excellent and the food delicious and entertainment was extensive."
Cons: "Only part that was a challenge was the transfer at Heathrow from one flight to the next. While it has improved since my last transit through there many years ago it is still not my first choice when I fly international."
Pros: "The crew were friendly, professional and extremely pleasant."
Cons: "I’m not a fan of the constant PA’s during the descent. Playing a video about arrival procedures for an airport is extremely superfluous. Nobody pays attention and you just have to follow the signs when you get there."
Pros: "The safety video was a great. All was on time."
Pros: "Staff were very busy as flight was full but still managed to be upbeat, funny and polite which always makes things nicer."
Cons: "Really frustrating that the passenger behind me spent most of the night waking me up jabbing the screen on the back of my chair- not much sleep was had . Not directly BA's fault but it would help if use of the REMOTE CONTROL was actively promoted to people- or get rid of the touch screen???. Being typical British I didn't complain there and then :/"
Cons: "Seat comfort in Business Class worse than low cost airlines Crew rude and aloft Food terrible"
Pros: "The flight attendants are very helpful and accommodating. Even the food was good! Took a pic of my meal and wanted to ask for seconds!"

Cons: "I called them for luggage I have I can take 20 3KG in the end in the airport I haw to pay for my language"
Pros: "The food"
Pros: "The crew members were cheerful and competent. No complaints."
Cons: "Security was slow, slow, slow and confusing. Arrived at gate after boarding had started. Did not like having to pay for a mediocre cup of coffee. Seats were not very comfortable and very cramped - and no, we are not overweight."
Pros: "We arrive twenty minutes early."
Cons: "We lost a half hour because of defective equipment and had to exist the back of the plane on to the runway."
Pros: "On time. Decent legroom. Average movies -- a bit bland."
Cons: "Daytime flight, Boston to London. Fair breakfast. But instead of a decent snack and wine before landing 7pm, they gave chips and cookies and no wine."
Cons: "plumbing issue on the plane delayed the flight by about an hour"
Cons: "The customer service I a disaster. They ripped off my suitcase and I never got a refund despite all my emails nd infos I gave them after the claim done at the airport."
Cons: "No drink"
Pros: "I love Tegel and it's too bad that it's on the way out. Easy, easy check in."
Pros: "Great crew, pleasant flight"
Cons: "It was late We were left on tarmac for 1 hour Service bad Oh yes and it was not even a BA airplane.....it was Qatar Airways .... something I would not travel on out of choice. BA stand for Beyond Awful It is now a budget airline that makes Ryanair look great! Not even an in flight magazine it is simply a skeleton of its former self, the Spaniard has destroyed it Would never travel British Airways again"
Pros: "I had extra leg room."
Cons: "The TV screen was in a stick and it had been used so much that if I didn't pull it forward all the way it would not stay up. Then when you try to put it down it hits the wall in front of you and doesn't tuck in."
Pros: "Highly professional crew whose customer care is fabulous! Comfortable seats Tasty meals Kept time"
Cons: "Can't think of any. Just keep it up!"
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Waits, long wait for baggage, surly crew."

Pros: "Long flight but free personal entertainment screens and free food breakfast, lunch dinner and snack. Free wine with the dinner"

Pros: "Fantastic service and entertainment. One of my best flights in years."
Cons: "1st service was good. Second just ok."
Pros: "The staff were friendly and boarding/ getting off were a breeze. I loved how much space the aircraft had inside."
Pros: "If I had another option for a direct flight to London, I'd take that over traveling with BA."
Cons: "They ran out of the meat option for my meal. Understandable but I couldn't eat the veg option either. The flight attendant literally said to me that they had no other food on board - a complete lie of course which I didn't appreciate given the $1500 ticket I paid for the flight."
Pros: "Several little things meant a lot: 1. The bathrooms stayed fairly clean on a 9+ hour flight. 2. LOTS of entertainment options. 3. Flight attendants seemed genuinely kind and helpful in addition to being professional. 4. Meals were not completely horrible."
Cons: "1. Real cream for the coffee, please."
Pros: "The staff Food was plentiful"
Cons: "Poor leg room Cabin too warm Poor boarding efficiency"
Pros: "Boarding staff was confused and took al long time. The crew were nice enough but disinterested in serving us and were annoyed when I asked for a few crackers or bread to help with a stomach ache. Never got any. I had to get up several times to ask for water. Comfort was ok and plane was warm enough. There was several people who came and sat down next to me in the open seat, 6 or 7 different people who left their own seats elsewhere on the plane and came to sit next to me in the open seat. One woman brought her child over, asked me to love another seat over, so her child could lay down and put his feet in my lap. Then, when Inledt for the ladies room, she left him there to kick the seat in front of him and throw his tuna fish sandwich pieces on me and on the floor. I never agreed to play nanny to her child and after I'd paid $750 for a one way ticket from TPA to AMS, I didn't think I should have to. The mother gave me an earful of her bad language when I asked her to take care of her own child and take him and his fishy tuna sandwich back to his own designated seat. I had asked a male flight attendant to handle the situation, neither he nor the other staff, who stood by, cared that it was disturbing me, or that the other passengers were playing musical chairs with empty seats all night. I have flown British Air more than 100 times in my life. For 35 years it was my go to airline for step up in quality, service and class. This time I could have flown several other airlines that would have been $379, $400, 547, 650 for the same flight TPA to London Gatwick then AMS, instead I opted to pay a little more and thought I'd get a little more. Not any more on British Air. Other passengers on the flight were rested when they arrived. Not me, I was tired and disappointed and kicking myself for paying more to fly British Air. This is sadly understandable, as all quality is down with alot of airlines. But it's particularly disappointing that I'm saying that about British Air after all these years. I have only complained one time to an airline over 30 years. This will be my second time. I plan to send this complaint to British Air and ask for a refund."
Pros: "Usual fantastic standard of service"
Cons: "Shabby baggage reclaim service at LHR with staff ignoring priority baggage"
Pros: "Politeness, precision, correctness."
Cons: "It was a little bit hard to understand the words of the pilots because of the noise."
Pros: "Getting home."
Cons: "The tannoy was difficult to hear at the airport, guess that is not the fault of the airline but it made boarding difficult. Stewardess whizzed past when offering duty free shopping on board."
