Pros: "Agents went above and beyond to help. Wish I had names because I was REAL impressed at how much they helped to get our bags checked.

Cons: "I added Luggage 16.5kg and they charge $130 AUS.The weak point is they are not showing luggage when we booked."

Pros: "Most of the flight attendants were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "One of my pet dislikes would be when some passengers have oversized carryon luggage that take up all the room in the overhead compartment of their own and the next one! My bag was about 3 compartments in front of me, which I didn’t mind, until someone tried to claim my bag as theirs..."

Cons: "I was connecting on an International flight on same airline, New Zealand Air, and did not see where I was required to pay for our one checked bags for my wife and I. When I checked in on line I was not notified that I should buy the checked backs online so assumed one bag each was free. Instead we were charged $nz120. This is not acceptable and I would like a refund. Please help on this request. Thank you."

Pros: "Our hostess was extremely friendly, accomdating and engaging. Air Nz need more staff like her! We had taken a Honolulu flight to Auckland flight the day before and were really disappointed with the service, lack of friendliness and the limited availability of food were not what I have come to expect on Air NZ, an airline we have been so proud of in the past to fly."
Cons: "There was no doubt the staff made this journey great!"

Pros: "Business Class Seats were comfortable"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything!"

Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly. Food came in a paper bag but still was good and plenty. The plane was an Airbus-330, it's a smaller plane for shorter routes but the seats were actually more comfortable than the newest Boeing 787-9 they use for long hauls."
Cons: "Don't bus the passengers to the plane and make them climb the stairs. It's almost 2020."

Cons: "Just don't use Etihad"

Pros: "Everything was excellent. The entertainment system was also excellent."

Cons: "Entertainment, comfort"

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Service could have been better"

Pros: "The crew were NOT helpful, The captain didn't inform us well about the delay"
Cons: "More communication with passengers, as well start the Entertainment screens early, NOT after take off ?? which is really strange ??"

Cons: "My Baggiage is extremely damaged which is so disgusting and there is no way to report it"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "- Very noisy and old airplane - Since it's old, the legroom in economy was poor and the business class was looking like it was built in the 80s. It was really cramped even in the business class - If you bring your own headphones, make sure they're noise cancelling since it's noisy on the plane - And if you bring your own headphones, you need those old 2 pin style connectors as well. The ones that Ethiad give you are super low quality. - Screen resolution on those screens is really bad, you can view every pixel on the screen and brightness doesn't go all the way up either."

Pros: "Clean & tidy planes. Good service. Sufficient legroom for me - I'm six foot two inches tall & the 787 was great. Much more room than the airbus we flew to Athens on from Tel Aviv."

Pros: "Not applicable"
Cons: "Lack of ability to cancel"

Pros: "Very well organized and efficient. Very friendly staff. Great service."
Cons: "I paid for internet which constantly disconnected. Waste of money."

Pros: "The food is not standard airline food and deliciously reflects the Middle East."

Cons: "Very limited food served at inappropriate times with no flexibility. No information provided on what meals would be served at what times. Very limited entertainment. Very long uncomfortable flight compounded by crew hawking duty free goods like vendors at a fish market, waking many of those who had been fortunate enough to fall asleep."

Pros: "Flight cancelled"

Pros: "Staff were nice"
Cons: "Seats didn’t work. Both seats couldn’t recline. Not nice on a 13hr flight! Gluten free meal was very average. Poor entertainment compared to other airlines."

Cons: "Unusually the crew were quite stand off. Normally cheerful and accommodating this crew gave you the feeling you were in the way and tiresome"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Tv Options"

Pros: "Flight was empty so had enough room next to my window seat"
Cons: "The food was an express snack! For a 2.5 hour flight, I think it’s seriously a shame!"

Pros: "Chauffeur car came on time checking was quick overall flight was excellent"

Cons: "It’s an old flight with improper seats and seating arrangements ..flight has dull ambience.the food menu most of items were same as of my losangles abudhabi flight .."

Pros: "As above"

Pros: "The staff were great and very nice and helpful. It was very quiet in business class and we enjoyed that as economy was really crowded. The business class lounge was nice but needs a quiet area where people who have long layovers (like us) can lay down and have a darkened room for a bit of rest."
Cons: "The seat I was in was very hard and definitely needs more padding. My but was killing me during the flight but the cabin crew helped me by gin I got me 2blankets to fold up and sit on. The pillows are way too big and hard. I recommend paring them down the size they currently are. I was in seat 7-E. The business class bus was last to come so we waited for a long time to get to the plane. Most of economy was boarded before us. But not really a big problem as we did get on the plane with no problem."

Pros: "Flight attendants were super ultra professional."
Cons: "Flight attendants were super ultra professional."

Pros: "the nice crew- the relative speed of boardinf"
Cons: "compared with Emirates, the movies/Tv choices are very limited and in addition, only available -after take off and stop being available 30 min before landing. very disaappointing compared with emirates when we can start watching content from the minute we are on the plane until the very last minute. also, the plane had very limited space dedicated to stretch legs compared to other A380 from other companies."

Pros: "was easy to find connecting flight info."

Pros: "Plenty of spare seating. Cabin staff and crew very helpful."
Cons: "Entertainment was dreadful more than 50pc not working. Flight tracker not working. Back of end rear cabin seats some were loose. Dreading return legs of trip."

Cons: "I wanted to cancel this flight and I am not able to connect to the right department in just fly, this is the most annoying experience I have had. If left unresolved I might not use kayak.com ever again"

Cons: "The seats were cramped, small compared to the flight I took from JFK to Abu Dhabi. Again, The boarding was delayed and no announcements were made. I am saying this despite I prefer Etihad for my international flights. This time the experience was lame."

Pros: "Etihad showed some kind of discrimination non-muslims wheel chair passengers. My luggage is not taken good care of as they tear my zipper. The crew of are okay but never take good care of seniors with some physical disabilities to check and see whether they need water to drink on long distance flights as many airlines do. Muslim wheel chair passengers were given preferential treatment as I am always last one to be picked up and my luggage came at the end after waiting for one hour."

Pros: "I'd never flown Etihad before and had a 13 hour flight followed by a 5 hour flight with them so I went in with fingers crossed for a good experience. My flight from JFK to Abu Dhabi was on an A380 and it was a spectacular plane. The crew was amazing the entertainment selection was great, the bathrooms were clean - it was a great experience."
Cons: "I have no complaints other than it would have been nice to be able to go online and have a look at my seating & have the option to change my seat. Fortunately I didn't need to change my seat but it would be nice to have the option to at least look."

Pros: "Upgraded with miles for the long leg Melb to Abu Dhabi. Flat beds tight both length and width for me at 6ft 3inches. I slept fitfully for 7 hours. Food seemed better than my last experience of their business class."
Cons: "Seats still narrow and firm. Rather noisy, a 777, appreciated my Bose quiet comforts..."

Pros: "Great vegetarian food and good assortment of latest movies/tv shows."

Pros: "The air staff were so good!!! So friendly and so attentive!!"
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "food was great!"

Pros: "Very comfy seats."

Cons: "Hi, Pliz sort out the menu,the food was rubbish."

Pros: "Great crew and flight"

Cons: "The seats are too small no entertainment No fast track for business class"

Pros: "Selection of films was good"
Cons: "BA business class is getting tired and very odd configuration. Ran out of choices for food and breakfast looked like there was not enough to go round. Overnight flight, but food not served for about hour and half, and breakfast served 2 hours before landing."

Pros: "Friendly crew, new release films"
Cons: "Quicker boarding and better food"

Cons: "British Airways just get the basics right. One carry on one personal item. Friendly staff. Comfy seats. Honestly I don’t know what more I could ask for outside of USB ports."

Pros: "Great flight attendants."

Pros: "The flight crew"
Cons: "Never board check in luggage at lcy, they don't know what to do with it"

Cons: "Don’t like the business class seating configuration. The entertainment system played up and only worked in half the cabin. They tried to fix it without success"

Pros: "Crew very professional and staff well informed."
Cons: "Feels like a bus in the sky. Same device as Ryanair but not on time."

Pros: "Friendly staff that helped me change seat after I landed in a middle seat."
Cons: "Food is bad. Did not like it one bit. Entertainment too limited, expected more from BA (particularly in the music area). Feels more.like a budget airline! Maybe London airport problem, but both flights from London (at the start of holiday and at the end) were delayed. Nearly missed my connecting flight to NZ. Overall: Resent experience with BA and London Heathrow airport was to the extend that my future travel won't be with BA nor through London airport."

Pros: "Good service, boarded quick and landed early"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "We arrived 20 early in AMS and departed LHR 5 min behind schedule"

Pros: "Again, I liked that we reached our destination safely."
Cons: "Because of the almost 3 hour delay, almost all of the passengers on the flight missed their connecting flight. Including myself. I was moved to a flight four hours later Finally, the last leg of my flight was again delayed 55 minutes and I ended up on a very, very crowded flight and getting to my destination at almost 5pm instead of 9am.... missing a whole day of activities. What did I get as compensation from British Airways? A 5 pound coupon for 'light refreshment' for an 8 hour inconvenience. Brilliant :|"

Pros: "Staff/crew were fantastic, extremely friendly, very down to earth, like family"
Cons: "I thought the food was very ordinary. Selection and type of food could have been more interesting. Bread stuffs did not seem fresh, but thawed from frozen items"

Pros: "I was flying Business and I couldn’t tell any difference between Business and Economy except the covers on the headrest"
Cons: "No difference between Business and Economy"

Cons: "The boarding crew forced us to check-in our handbags saying there's no space on board. The flight was half empty. We had to wait 30 mins to get our luggages when we arrived. Very annoying."

Cons: "No complimentary drinks, even coffee"

Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Poor entertainment - no individual TV screen or choice of entertainment. Food was very poor. We were 9 min late due to crew shortages."

Cons: "Tight squeeze. No leg room. No complimentary snacks or drinks. Plane was slow to leave and take off."

Cons: "Feels like BA has turned into Ryan Air. £65 for a checked bag, cramped seating and not even a free water."

Pros: "quick"

Pros: "Check in staff and Crew are brilliant. Always pleasant, friendly and helpful. Some aircraft are a little ‘tired’ and a few things don’t quite work as they should. For example my wife’s headphone socket was broken, and therefore no in flight entertainment. But we managed. It was reported to the crew and they immediately set about recording it for attention at next maintenance and changed our seats, so no complaints there. A few of the entertainment screens are scratched, and the controls faulty. But still usable with a little perseverance."
Cons: "Seat row spacing too close. There is little point of a reclining seat because using it greatly inconveniences the passenger behind."

Pros: "Not much. They got us there."
Cons: "Flight was late. London heathrow is such a pain. You have to ride a bus between terminals. You have to sit in the A terminal area waiting for your gate then hustle to your gate. The plane was old. The British crew was less than friendly. Everything on the flight costs. Couldn’t even get water for free."

Cons: "Had to wait around while waiting forever to learn about gate. Were told that gat would be revealed 45 min before flight. It came about 20minutes before. It was a little harrowing."

Pros: "We got nothing:-(!"

Pros: "Food was tasty"
Cons: "Was delayed"

Pros: "This flight is exactly what you’d expect it to be- no frills, just a cheap way to get around! Coffe is 30 pnc so come pr prepared!"

Pros: "The crew did their best. They were efficient and polite, no complaints"
Cons: "First of all, it wasn’t British Airways, it was operated by American Airlines. The seats were cramped; just barely enough kneeroom and I’m only 5’10”. There were no monitors on the seat backs and no choice of entertainment, only monitors hanging from the ceiling. I suppose the airline assumes, probably correctly, that these days everybody has their own entertainment on laptop or tablet. The problem here, though, was that there were no charging plugs at the seats, so you’d better have a full battery when you get on and hope it lasts. Of course, I could have just read the inflight magazine, except that my reading light was broken. Food was decent for airline food."

Pros: "Highlight of the trip was BA's inflight safety video."
Cons: "I took a BA flight after a while. I had stopped flying BA in flight service and comfort was poor. I travel business class. Seats were dated (seat cushions), plane was dated, inflight entertainment systems dated (compared to most other airlines). Crew goofed up on food. I had a seat change which I informed the Sr Purser who came to take food order, his colleague who came to serve drinks. Still the server gave my food to the other passenger who had requested to change seats. Which resulted in no food for me. They clamoured some meal fro economy class and served so shabbily (only a pic can show how shabby it was - unfortunately I can't attach one here). In spite of all this the purser showed no remorse or offered no apology. I think I made a mistake in choosing BA, should have never come back to them."

Cons: "As per above"

Cons: "Not even a cup of coffee anymore - low cost carrier behaviour against full price fare. KLM is much better"

Pros: "I recently had a difficult time returning to Italy and the part of the journey handled by BA was excellent. They were kind and helpful."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor check in process, no complementary food or drink and 30 late arriving"

Pros: "Great for traveling for the first time with my toddler! The staff were so nice and helpful."

Pros: "Good variety of onboard entertainment. Middle seats felt roomy."
Cons: "The staff weren't the most professional (save for one or two members) and the food was not great."

Pros: "Check in too long for drop off bag otherwise quick boarding, flight early and bagage delivered very quickly"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Food was horrible"
