Pros: "The cre was really nice and very attentive."

Cons: "Bassinet seats could be bigger for comfort with an infant."
Cons: "Qatar Air! So refreshing to have good service just when I thought it was gone in this "modern" world..."

Cons: "The food during the flight from Manila to Doha was poor. Last year I flew from Doha to Singapore in January and the year before that from Doha to Colombo, the food on both of the latter flights was very good. The food during flight from ManilaManila to Doha was poor."
Pros: "Many movies (entertainment) I got front seat with leg space (comfort)"

Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "The service on Qatar airways was excellent as always. The seats were comfortable and the flight attendants provided a 5 star service throughout the flight."

Cons: "Wrost app I don’t advise any one use it cause"
Cons: "- Leg Space is challenge"
Pros: "Qatar personal ground services they did the best they could in a difficult environment such as GVA airport. Cabin Crew FABULOUS Quality of space GOOD Food EXCELLENT Looking forward in flying again with QATAR AIRWAYS Thanks Tony Manias"
Cons: "Although for some technical reasons the flight was considerably delayed, there was no action taken either by Qatar Airways or Geneva airport authorities to make the waiting more confortable!! The passengers of economy class and business class were all stacked in the same space (it looked more of a hangar...) Access to this space was only possible by stairs (No elevator - No escalator !!) No drinks offered, not enough chairs to sit and wait......etc The main blame is to put on Geneva Airport Authorities. This airport is a total mess From the moment one arrives at the airport area (access - parking - ..) till the moment of boarding... It should be boycotted by major and quality companies such as Qatar Airways and many others."

Pros: "My husband and I recently traveled from New York to Bali Indonesia for our honeymoon. We were upgraded to Business for all four of our flight segments. The flight attendants were incredibly friendly and courteous and were actually surprised when we only ordered one drink and one meal at a time! The food was phenomenal, especially for an aircraft meal, and no matter what I was in the mood for, they had it."
Cons: "Boarding in New York was not organized. Those traveling with small children or needing assistance were not boarded first, nor were Business and Economy boarding from separate jetways."

Pros: "The was very hospitalty"
Cons: "Every thing was amazing"

Cons: "Staff did nothing about crying children for the entire flight. Food was awful."
Pros: "Flight was very good"
Pros: "The seats are very uncomfortable. impossible to be comfortable."
Cons: "There is nothing to improve. I wish other airlines can learn from them."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "On such a long flight from Dubai to Boston, the seats in coach were criminal! Way to narrow, not enough distance to seat in front of you, seats do NOT recline enough to be able to relax & get needed rest, no footrest & way overcrowded. Although the price was good, we truly suffered on this trip."
Pros: "I am tall and was very happy with the leg room in economy class. Food was tasty."
Cons: "Nothing really. Was completely satisfied."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was nice."

Cons: "No comments"
Cons: "If you want upgrade you should bay 2100 USD why it’s a upgrade not new ticket !!"
Pros: "Very efficient. Fab selection of movies."
Cons: "I am lacto vegetarian but my only option was vegan. Second meal was a banana and some tired bits of pepper and carrot. Surely an airline like Emirates can offer a meat-free option!"
Pros: "The staff was quite helpful in many ways and checking in was easy with online booking. For an economy flight, the quality of the food was good."
Cons: "I found it difficult to navigate the screen on the airline. Everything else was fine and I am happy with the airline."

Cons: "Seats a bit uncomfortable but I know nothing can be done about that, so everything else was great."
Pros: "I liked the service provided."
Cons: "Would like to see decent vegetarian food options. Also please introduce some variance in your menu. the menu has been the same in the last 3 flights."
Pros: "Food as requested: Great Entertainment:great Crew: Nice 16 hrs flight didn’t seem boring at all"
Pros: "The departure and return flight time, for the price I paid, I felt like I was in more than an economy flight. The meal, the baggage quota, the entertainment. The time flew because by the time the movie had finished, we were starting to descend. I will always look for this flight with Emirates. There is no other flight in comparison, in what you get for your Buck. I believe that other Airlines, ie., Qantas, Virgin Aust, both give you a flight and service, for nearly the same fare but you only get 7kg luggage, no meal just the basic entitlement, tea/coffe/water with a biscuit or something like that and NO ENTERTAINMENT, NO COMPARISON!!!!"
Pros: "Good leg room and good service. Food decent and 380 has very good stable flight even with occcasional turbulence"

Cons: "The flight attendances were rude. Lot of mosquitoes inside the aircraft. Mosquitoes were every where. The aircraft were dirty and did not clean. under the seat trash, passenger food table was dirty, I had to ask crew member for napkin to clean. I would not recommend any one to take emirates. certainly i would not fly emirates again."
Pros: "The Crew on Emirates are just the best in the industry"
Cons: "paid extra for legroom but the legroom seats have a big disadvantage of no place to put things you need on a long flight."

Pros: "Total service extended was very nice"
Pros: "I really like the entertainment and the air cameras."
Cons: "I like everything"

Pros: "The ICE entertainment program & the food"
Cons: "my TV screen didn't work"
Pros: "The ways cabin Crew treated customers very well and politely . I feel comfortable."
Cons: "Because you guys treated customers well so they did something over. I flight from Genève airport to Hanoi but i transfer in Dubai. Next to me is a 3 girls. They are keep talking around three hours it’s doesn’t problem if a cabin Crew didn’t give them many bottles of wine. They are drinking for three hours with 9 bottles for 3 girls. They are talked so loudly,drunk and the smell very bad.you know i couldn’t sleep but When They are asking for more wine and the cabin crew also give it for them, i cant belived it!!!. And another guy he want to enjoy with them and asked me to change a sit, i want to sleep and i though it will be better for me. But its not. They are talked more louder. And the problem is when they are getting drunk, the guy back to his sit and take something in his cabin, because he can not control his actions so some stuff from his bag drop down over my head also my body. I was mad but how should i do? Point at his face and tell something bad? Oh i can not. canbin crew just comes and say sorry with me. That is a bad flight that i ever had. You treat customers well but you should have a limit. Im so disappointed about my flight of that day. Thank you"
Pros: "Overall experiance."
Cons: "Nothing specially."
Pros: "Best upper class flight ever!"
Pros: "Entertainment is good"
Cons: "Flight was good"
Pros: "The entertainment options were great! And, they have free wine with meals."
Cons: "There was no leg room at all in economy. My knees were in the seat of the person in front of me. Most of the food was terrible and I only ate the bread. The TV is on the back of the seat in front of you and is a touch screen. You have to touch pretty hard. So, every time the person behind me was scrolling, they had to hit my seat. I couldn't sleep the entire 16 hours more than 30 minutes. I asked for water to take some medicine and was told it was 30 minutes til food service and to wait. It was over 2 hours before they started food service."
Pros: "Flight was good for a shorter range"
Pros: "Crew was great, entertainment options expansive, food decent"
Cons: "I had 2.5 hours to get from terminal 5 to 4, check in and get to gate. I almost didn't make it. The lines at emirates check in were insane and didn't move for a long time (online checknin was unavailable). TSA at JFK also. Easy slow and my TSA precheck didn't appear for my pass."
Pros: "Service, comfort"
Cons: "Too much costly for a Tuesday flight. But rest all good"
Pros: "Roomy and very comfortable A380 flight is great"
Cons: "The price of the tickets that I booked was not valid. They first declined my card and then they told me that the price has changed."
Pros: "Overall it's a good airline. Economy is fairly comfortable, great entertainment options, decent food, and the staff is exceptional."
Cons: "Emirates baggage on board policy is a bit strict compared to most of the other Asian and American flights I've been on. Usually I'm allowed a regular carry-on and a personal item (i.e., a small backpack), but Emirates was very strict on the personal items. Personal items are limited to only Business and First Class passengers. Also, they were extremely strict about the size of my carry-on. As someone who has been on 20+ flights in this year alone, few of them being budget airlines (which are generally very strict), I had no issues whatsoever with the size of my carry-on until I flew with Emirates."
Cons: "The service in business class was extremely poor. There was 1 male flight attendant who was extremely rude and refused to help when there were problems with the entertainment center. Several of the monitors/remote controls were not working. The lay out in the business class prevents you from getting up and out to go to the restroom when the person next to you is lying down and sleeping. The seats recline in a way that are not comfortable. The feet are still downwards. Overall, this plane's business class was not worth the money. I expect much more from Emirates."
Pros: "Crew couldn't have been friendlier!"
Pros: "Great entertainment options. Good tasting dinner and pizza. Decently comfortable seats:good recline, nice headrests, and sufficient leg room, but the seat and back pads were hard."
Cons: "Smoked salmon is gross for on a plane,even just as an appetizer. Meals were skimpy (dinner, apple/granola bar, pizza snack) for such a long 8+ hour flight. Collecting blankets & headphones well before landing was inconsiderate (I was COLD for the last 40+ minutes, and couldn't watch anything or listen to music for the last 30 minutes). Flight attendants needed to offer pens for customs forms."
Cons: "Boarding was so messy. Not organized at all. Discipline among passengers and ground crew is missing!"
Pros: "Overall the service and the food provided made for a good flight"
Cons: "My flight seat assignment was changed without my knowledge"
Pros: "The crew was both plentiful and friendly, both on the ground and in the air. The entertainment choices were outstanding - the best I've ever seen, including first class on other airlines. The food was excellent."
Cons: "Nothing. Great service, great food, great airline."
Pros: "Entertainment on board"
Cons: "Your flight attendants are terrible, I asked her 3times just to get some water and she raise her voice to me, and I press attendant call button for 5 times just to get some more water but non of your flight attendant showed up at my seat, I'm a purser of Thai airlines so I know this Emirates flight attendant service was suck. I will never fly with Emirates again, so bad services"
Pros: "I flew Business and it's like first class all the way. Seats are so comfortable-entatinment and a lounge area that feels like a top one With drinks and food-you can almost forget you're on a plane. Helpful. Flight attendants and great food and wine meal selections Fabulous airline I chose for long flights. Incomparable"
Cons: "I loved it all!"
Cons: "Good and entertainment"
Pros: "Crew and beverage options were great."
Cons: "Seats could have been more comfortable. And slightly more leg room would have been preferred for a 14hr flight."
Pros: "Free checked Bags"
Cons: "If we could have a free select seat after booking."
Pros: "I like the free check-bags"
Cons: "I like that if I can select the seats for free after booking ."
Pros: "It was a routine flight and everything was OK but not fantastic"
Cons: "Some of the food served was quite bad .... other options were pretty good"
Pros: "The crew and the flight was good. The comfort of the seats were not, especially for a 14.5 hr flight"
Cons: "Just a little more space between the seats! You have to lean to the side, on the passenger seating next to you to try to pick something up or gather your belongings."
Pros: "One member of the crew did her best to treat me as a premium FF member. That was about it."
Cons: "Qantas really screwed up the operational management of this flight resulting in a long delay into Sydney and then a further delay to Brisbane. Getting the water weight and balance right is FLIGHTOPS 101, but not for this B Team. Much of the flight delay was completely avoidable."
Cons: "That I was rebooked for a flight I showed up to before it took me off. Literally people that showed up after me got on the plane"
Cons: "Seats were awful."
Pros: "all good"
Cons: "all good"
Cons: "I was seated in business class - the attendant gave my special order food to another guest and gave me something else instead. I could have gotten very ill from this, and notified the flight attendant who shrugged it off and walked off."
Pros: "Flight crew is great"
Cons: "Didn’t like the the whole check in process. None of the system worked. Manual check in all the way and took so long. Not enough staff to service."
Cons: "This airport is disorganised and undersized for the volume of patrons passing through. Was frustrated with the poor response of Sydney airport go manage an obvious failure of their baggage handling system. No fallback procedure was activated(manual for eg) to actually progress baggsge hangling even for those with connections to make. Disappointed and embarrassed by the defensive attitudes of staff who were given no Support by mgt of either airport or airline."
Pros: "Cabin crew were helpful and updated us on connections in Melbourne (although they wouldn't have needed to do this if the flight hadn't have left late)."
Cons: "Flight was late and this was significant as I had a tight connection in Melbourne. There did not seem to be a good reason it was late as the aircraft was already at Launceston. They just towed it to the gate late! No announcements were made as to the lateness of the flight until the departure time had actually passed."
Pros: "Detail and attention to peoples specific needs. Service prior to boarding and during were excellent"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3 hours. We were stuck on the plane 2 of the 3 hours! Terrible!"
Pros: "Complimentary Inflight drink and the effort from crew to accommodate English second language passengers in my row."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and attentive."
Pros: "Flight was delayed simply due to the poor positioning of the auxiliary power unit that is an acceptable reason for delay which shows absolutely poor operational management of the local airport operations"
Cons: "Really unnecessary delays."
Cons: "Seats very cramped with 6 children sharing seats invarea"
Pros: "Great choice of entertainment. Served good food often with nice menu selection. Seats a bit tight as with all airlines. Fruit was fabulous and fresh - there were none left when I requested mine, but the flight attendant said there may be some left from other servers. Within a few minutes, she did bring one which I was thankful as I didn’t care for the other selection."
Cons: "Close seats especially when others recline, but we were lucky on this flight no one did as it wasn’t a full flight so people moved around."
Pros: "Enough room.. 3 seats for myselfe"
Pros: "Quick & friendly"
Cons: "Not given the right information. Almost missed connecting flight to Vancouver,because of waiting at the carrousel. For luggage that wasn't going to show up. Asked a security person about it. She radioed my #s in. Then told me it's still in Melbourne . A security issue. Now I'm about to miss my conecting flight. Don't worry you can catch the next one. At night, it's 8 am. Then only to find out I'm to go from terminal 1 to 3. Had 10 min. together there and go threw customs. Ran with injured knee."
Pros: "Quality & service."
Pros: "Jean and Dave were excellent stewards"
Cons: "Stop sending me these emails. I didn't even take this flight."
Pros: "Friendly Service and free drinks"
Cons: "Long flight"
Cons: "Arrogance of the crew"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Assistant at luggage drop off was very pleasant and helpful"
Pros: "Not much. The movie selection was ok"
Cons: "How can an airline be worse than United. Ask Qantas because they cracked the code."
Pros: "Complementary food, movies, shows, and beverages"
Pros: "prompt checkin, boarding, baggage came out fast"
Cons: "no drinks service prior to meal, seats squashy, don't eat the stir fried noodles they are tragic, entertainment system didn't work properly - again."
Pros: "Very little. Even though I'm sure I wasn't suppose to, my seat allowed me to put my feet up on the wall. At least I was able to elevate them a bit."
Cons: "First, the flight was delayed an hour and a half. No gate was announced until just before boarding. Afraid of missing my flight, I didn't doze even though I had been awake for 20 hours at this point. Once I got on the plane, the seats were so small in economy my hips were pressed against the arm rests and I am not a large person. The man next to me was pressing through over to my side. We both had difficulty opening the tray for meals because they were in the arm rests (not that it mattered, we were never served good). The controls for the entertainment and lights were in the arm rests as well and there was no way to see them because your thighs were pressed against them. The screen for my entertainment was crooked and flickered. The charging port did not work for my cell phone. The earphone jack had to be wiggled and wiggled and then I had to hold my leg perfectly still not to bump it. I eventually gave up trying to use the entertainment screen. I preordered my meal online, but waiting for dinner, already exhausted, I dozed off. I didn't get dinner and no one came around the rest of the trip and offered any refreshments. No water, no snack, nothing. As a matter of fact, I'm not sure I saw a crew member for the rest of the flight."
Pros: "Absolute top shelf service from checkin to de-planing."
Pros: "Dinner meal"
Pros: "Overall, one of the best international flying experiences I have ever had."
Pros: "Extraordinary crew energy, plenty of food."
Cons: "Ran a bit late and boarding queue was unusually chaotic."
Cons: "I was surprised that we were flying a different carrier than Emirates"
Pros: "registration was easy and well organized. Kosher food was perfect and served timely. Crew was polite and helping immediately. Everything was comfortable, except the quality of earphones ."
Cons: "Compares very unfavourably to Emirates who we used on the outward leg. Food very poor and choices limited by the time we were served."
Pros: "plane will clean and service pleasant. hot meal service on 2.5 hour fight."
Cons: "limit weight of roller carry on limited to 8 kg, though did not check weight of shoulder bags New Zealand immigration is intense with bio inspection - check that you do not have any nuts or other issues as took a long time to inspect packaged food bought at Sydney airport Prior to check-in, needed evidence of flight leaving New Zealand, not just confirm number - paper with actual ticket number"
Pros: "Great entertainment, food, and beverage service."
Pros: "Quantas is great, great food, staff, seats were pretty roomy. Entertainment options were very good."
Cons: "American Airlines. Tiny seats, bad customer services, no entertainment on board, so loud you can't even sleep."
Pros: "Boarding on time. Crew attentive."
Cons: "Needs better, current movies"
Pros: "Staff obliging food excellent on time all good"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Food was amazing as was the crew"
Cons: "Seats get stuck and difficult to maneuver to the upright position."
Pros: "Great service as always!"
Pros: "I slept. Food was fine even though I forgot to order vegetarian. Movie selection seemed extensive too."
Cons: "No a lot."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "They should learn from Emirates or Qatar Airways on how an airline service should be.... never again, sorry Etihad..."
Cons: "From chennai to Abu dhabi was very uncomfortable Abu Dhabi to London was very comfortable"
Pros: "Good crew Seats good"
Cons: "Earphones plug difficult to fit Toilet cleanliness not adequate on occasion"
Pros: "Literally didn’t like anything from boarding to touchdown"
Cons: "Nicer more helpful crew. More leg space. More air temperature control abs cleaner bathrooms"
Pros: "Food and crew"
Cons: "Entertainment, comfort"
Cons: "My wife had a drunk passenger sitting next to her and the crew did nothing to stop the man from misbehaving.....what can I say to this inefficiency ??? I choose to not travel with ETIHAD ever again."
Cons: "Gate 61 for boarding is too far away and requires a lot of walking....very strange design of the airport"
Pros: "Seat upgrade in response to complaint"
Cons: "Etihad website did not allow check in and seat allocation until arrival at the airport. This meant that, despite having booked months before and making numerous attempts to complete web check in, my wife and I would have been placed in the centre two seats of a block of 4 seats. The check in process makes Ryanair look excellent!"
Pros: "I go an email that this flight has not been purchased. I had to call the company directly to purchase. Kayak website never made any correction in the my trips section. Which made me believe falsely that I have a confirmed booking."
Pros: "I found the crews and their services good. Food served was tasty and healthy."
Cons: "The seat layout wasnt good. In a Boeing 777-300ER generaly the seat layout is 3-3-3 in a row, where as in etihad aircraft it was 3-4-3 in the economy. Th seat was very congested for a long haul flight."
Pros: "Chauffeur car came on time checking was quick overall flight was excellent"
Pros: "Comfo seat"
Cons: "Too ismail for the seat"
Pros: "The staff were lovely"
Cons: "The food options were awful & limited - sometimes there wasn’t actually an option. The flight was so squished & packed and I was incredibly uncomfortable in my seat. The boarding took ages & we were also delayed."
Cons: "If anything it would be the terminal 1 lounge at Abu Dhabi airport. It is pretty poor compared to the other lounge."
Cons: "Overall bad experience with Etihad Airways flying from Dulles to Abu Dhabi. I won't be flying with them again. 1. ETA: I had to apply for an electronic travel authority (ETA) (essentially an electronic tourist visa) twice despite the fact that I had been granted the visa originally by the Government of Australia two weeks prior to my flight. For some reason, airline staff said they could not see the visa information attached to my passport. I showed them the emails from the Government of Australia stating that my application had been successful along with the relevant reference number. The staff told me to apply for another one and let them know once I had. They informed me that this "happened all the time" with their customers traveling to Australia. If it is happening "all the time," Etihad Airways should check their database to ensure there are no glitches. It's Australia, not a third-world country, so it's likely on the Airline's end. The crew did not offer to look up my reference number or otherwise do any leg work to verify the visa that I already had, even when the application page stated that I already had a visa for the relevant time period! This stressed me out just a few hours before I was supposed to take off and could have been handled with a little effort by the staff. 2. Baggage Weight: They are sticklers for baggage weight, weighing your carry-on both prior to check in (it must be under 7 kg) and again right before boarding the plane. Literally no other airline has done this in my entire experience except the cheapo ones. Thankfully, I had a big purse and was able to shift the baggage weight around to get on because they pulled me out of line to board the plane. It's all going on the same plane so it makes no sense at all. This needlessly drags out the boarding process. 3. Crew: They sat a man who was coughing incessantly on my row (I had two empty seats next to me). The crew member accompanied him to my aisle while he told me where he would sit. The crew did not ask me to make space or anything (of course I would have said yes), but this particular gentleman had a cough and made me sick for my trip. I was not happy, and that situation could have been handled so much better. Bottom Line: Do yourself a favor and fly with Emirates. They're far better and professional and are similarly priced. Had none of these issues with them. (Added bonus: the food's a lot better as well)."
Pros: "i arrived safely"
Cons: "Even thiugh i paid for first class , i was made to wait for 30 minutes while economy passengers boarded. Many of them arrived after me. Other first class flights allow you to eat when you want. not this one. i slept through their mealtime - no food for me. the seats also do not recline fully. Since the treatment is not first class, might as well fly economy on this one."
Pros: "I didnt have to catch a bus to board like how we did at Abu Dhabi"
Cons: "The boarding was done the most confusing way. Back to front when there were zones on each boarding pass"
Pros: "There is nothing much to like about the flight. The only good thing about Etihad is the pre clearance option at Abu Dhabi that saves a lot of time after landing in the US"
Cons: "14+ hours of flying time where it can be done under 10 to 12 hours. Food is not good at all."
Pros: "SeatsPrompt service"
Pros: "Excellent at desk check in service, easy to change seat."
Cons: "The person checking me in at Delhi was rude. Didn’t let me take the cabin bag that others were allowed to take."
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived at destination even earlier"
Cons: "On line flight status. Since the flight arrived earlier (11:50 PM instead of 12:15 AM the next day) from Chennai to Abu Dhabi, earlier time was entered. But since the date was not changed, it showed a delay of about 11 hours."
Pros: "Kind of similar to Indian food if possible. Thanks"
Cons: "Salad that comes with Vegeterian meal."
Pros: "nothing to like about. sorry i wont be taking etihad airways."
Cons: "poorest customer service. my family members, friends and myself wont be taking etihad flight."
Cons: "They switched off the entertainment 50 hours before landing"
Cons: "Virgin Airlines lost my baggage, found it in 2 days and delivered it tome in 3 more days."
Pros: "Customer service."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Staff was great. Food was good, not great, but better than every other airline."
Cons: "The guest services agent at Delhi when I checked in was very strict about having a through ticket at my destination which almost caused me to miss my flight. I had previously checked with the consolate at my destination and there was no such requirement. Upon arrival, there was no concern whatsoever about having a through ticket. I know she was just doing her job, but this caused a lot of unnecessary stress."
Pros: "Overall flight experience was good, but the ground staff need to be more real time responsive and should own responsibility."

Pros: "A380 planes. What is not to like. Wide economy seats. A little glitchy entertainment system but over all comfortable flight."

Pros: "Staff in airport was very helpful. Lounge was nice."

Cons: "Dear Sir or Madam: My two colleagues and I bought our tickets from BWI to Geneva, via London Heathrow, through Kayak as I have many times in the past. However, the Kiwi.com travel agency did not flag that the ticket from BWI to London Heathrow allowed for one piece of checked luggage, but the ticket from London Heathrow onwards to Geneva did not allow for any checked luggage. Also astonishingly, we had to pass through Customs, reclaim our checked suitcases from the baggage carousel, and check in again through Customs to board the onward flight, both coming and going through London Heathrow. In addition to the extraordinary inconvenience that we could neither transit at London Heathrow to our connecting flight without going through Customs twice and that we could not check our luggage through to our final destination, we also had to foot a higher baggage charge to allow for checking in our suitcases, now that we had arrived in London Heathrow only to discover this that our onward ticket did not cover one piece of checked luggage. Had we known that the seemingly better price posted by Kiwi.com on Kayak’s comparative offerings came at such a high price of inconvenience and additional expense for the luggage, we would have taken our business elsewhere. It was deceptive of Kiwi.com to engage in such practices, even if it disclosed these conditions in fine print (for no one would expect, nor have I ever seen previously in the hundreds of flights I have taken as a Million Miler on United), without flagging this. And similarly, it was irresponsible of Kayak.com to allow this “apples with oranges” comparison on its website. I’m making three more international trips in December, but I’m inclined not to use either Kayak.com and most certainly not Kiwi.com for future airline ticket purchases."

Cons: "Coffee and tea were proposed, but have to be paid. I would understand for alcohol, but for tea and coffee, as a customer I felt a bit insulted"
Pros: "Nothing comes to mind."
Cons: "Crew was not friendly at all. Why do they do this job if they hate dealing with the passengers? They act as if we are a burden to them."
Pros: "Tight in ecomony. Aisle seats are bad I was hit the entire flight."
Cons: "Seats not the best"
Pros: "personnel extremely courteous, helpful and looked like they enjoyed their vocstion."
Cons: "not being able to check bags thru entire trip from gerneva thru London to lax. had to travel thru customs etc to get backs and then travel to terminal 2 from terminal, awful experience. made connecting flight by 15 minutes."
Cons: "Pointless priority boarding if you get all priority passengers to wait for the rest of the flight.."
Pros: "Easy flight schedules"
Cons: "Legroom in first class is a joke."
Pros: "Efficient, on time"
Cons: "Crew was not friendly and a bare bones plane"
Pros: "The crew were very helpful"
Pros: "The power plug points in Premium Economy."
Cons: "Rude staff and service. Limited service for food. if you compare British Airways with other European airlines like SAS, Swiss, and Lufthansa; British has fallen far behind in quality and service."
Pros: "flight was not crowded and service attentive and courteous"
Pros: "Was not able to check in for the flight on the ba.com. Called BA on the phone - no help. Person in the Geneva airport - unprofessional, unhelpful, had to go to another agent to get seat assignment. British Airlines - disappointing."
Cons: "Customer service - useless and with attitude. Couldn’t check in for the flight either on ba.com or over the phone."

Then they turned the lights off, then on again for drinks, then off then on again for a breakfast snack, then off then on again for more drinks. Just pick one, on or off please."
Pros: "The kindness of the service people."
Cons: "not even water was offered- i left the flight really dehydrated, and with a terrible migraine because there was a young baby behind me who was crying the entire time. The flight was mostly empty yet no one suggested moving the baby and parents (to the back) or the passengers around the baby to seats that were more quiet."
Cons: "When trying to check in online the day prior, the British Airways system was unable to load my reservation. Upon arrival to the airport, the rather unambitious fellow at the check-in desk refused to look up my reservation and instead insisted that my flight was in fact through American Airlines. After waiting in yet another queue, I was sent back to British Airways, where it was confirmed that Iwas booked on the flight, but that it would be to late to check my suitcase. I am still at my city of origin in London as I write this review."
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: "I always enjoy the BA flights. The crew is always warm and welcoming and they run very efficiently."
Cons: "Plane was still dirty from the previous flight. First time I've every seen that. And there didn't seem to be a soft-drink service - even for a glass of water. All refreshments had to be purchased"
Cons: "My first leg flight was delayed and I booked through kayak on two different airlines and the first airline did not communicate with the second airline so 5 passengers ran to make the change and arrived 1 min after the jetbridge to get on the plane was pulled away. It was incredible frustrating and could have very easily been avoided with communication from the airlines"
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. The food advertised was not available."
Cons: "I am emerald on one world. In the departure flight I was not able ot reserve an aisle seat during online checkin ( need to get up on flights quite a bit for health reasons). I had been assigned a window although aisles, my preference, were available. I sought to change seats from window to aisle and would have been charged USD $18 (on a flight within europe - why dollars?). The BA staff said the website would be fine on the return journey - but it was not. I arrnved at teh airport (not having checked in as I didn't want a window) and the BA staff person in 46 at 6:45pm simply said that's impossible to change anything - no apology; she seemed rather irritated to be asked. I then went to security and the machine for priority queue did not permit me to enter - it said 'invalid ticket'. Then the flight was significantly delayed. So all in all not a great day."

Cons: "We were not able to prebook or buy a seat because of a glitch with the computers in Geneva."
