Pros: "The crew was amazing. I upgraded to business class and am so happy I did for the 16 hour flight."

Pros: "Nice crew, 1 hr free WiFi"
Cons: "Significant delay on jetway, temps uncomfortable,"

Pros: "Crew was not this great on my Flight from Doha to IAD. My pre ordered food was not given on time and they missed it. I was given cold food. The flight attendant ignored to offer Drinks and they didn't give the Custom Forms too. I have to ask everything and THE overall service was awful"
Cons: "Flight attendants should care the passengers and provide the best service. Otherwise there is no use paying expensive flight tickets and travelling on Qatar"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Low cost airline so they charge you for everything. I had to pay $159 to check a bag for a 1.5 hour flight. That nearly doubled the cost of the original ticket. By the time they charge you for everything, you don't save any money. And they even weigh every purse, backpack, handbag, etc. at the gate and start charging customers for carry on. Don't fly with these guys. And because their customers are dissatisfied, all the employees I encountered were rude."

Pros: "Just as I thought it could not get any better The service was perfect. The privacy was superb and the comfort allowed me to sleep for a good while."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."

Pros: "seat space with leg room."

Cons: "Took long time to provide food & water."

Pros: "Everything really.They run the airline very smoothly and professionally from boarding to disembarking."
Cons: "They tempt you with so much food lol although some of the food wasnt too appealing.toilets very clean and seemed to stay that way throughout long 17hr flight.good leg room for a long legged guy like me.felt sorry for lady with two young children.She could have been allocated better seats."

Pros: "Everything?"
Cons: "Nothing?"

Cons: "Small chairs"

Cons: "Seat didnt fit to me."

Pros: "Quick"

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."

Pros: "Went out of their way to be helpful"

Pros: "Choice of flight from Utapao really was a no brainer. 45 minutes from home to departure lounge, had I flown from Bangkok I would still have been on the motorway! Everything went like a dream, a huge thank you to all at Qatar Airways, a true quality service."

Cons: "Poor service, long layovers with not enough lounge space. Misguiding customer service"

Pros: "Individual service, happy and natural looking crew, comfort and company aim."

Pros: "Helpful and friendly flight staff, comfortable business class seating that provided privacy and room for personal carry-on bag and toiletries."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "Overall better than most of domestic US or Korean national airline in terms of food and service."
Cons: "Boarding took longer than other airports. Too many redundant checks for no apparent reason."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Thank you to wonderful hard working Crew."
Cons: "I am a lacto ovo vegitarian. The meal was just vegitarian. I would have like to have an ice cream or a piece of cake."

Pros: "Wonderful airline! Very nice and friendly staff. I will fly with them again."

Pros: "The crew who were dedicated to our row came by and introduced themselves individually. They came frequently to ask for anything I required. They prompty responded to a request call. The lavatory to passenger ratio for Business class was excellent and I never had to wait for more than a minute. The food was very good but there is room for improvement."
Cons: "Some of the bread and croissants were not really fresh. Fresh fruits were also very limited and not properly ripened."

Cons: "The food options were good, but twice our family could not get the items we wanted as they ran out of them."

Pros: "Food and crew"
Cons: "Lost baggage no one knows anything."

Pros: "Seating"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."

Pros: "I like that the air stewards bring you water and drinks throughout and don't judge you for being too thirsty. I like that they respect that it is a night flight and serve the meal quickly so it can be dark for the whole flight and you can sleep as much as you can. I like how efficient the layover is in Doha - only 40mins!"
Cons: "I don't like when they don't ask the person in front to move their chair up for the meal and the passengers have to ask each other. I don't like that they can't tell you the gate of your connecting flight and how long it will take to get you there - including if you will need to take a bus and the train. I think this could reduce a lot of anxiety. If they could do this, it would also be helpful to let people who have a connecting flight that is boarding in the next 30 mins off the plane first. This would save pushing and shoving in the aisles... and would also reduce anxiety about booking a flight with such a short layover."

Cons: "A lot of plains departing from gates grouped together and we had to sit on the floor while wainting to board after we have been travelling for 18 hours. Obviously with no crowd control boarding was a mess."

Cons: "is it true that Qatar treats the passengers coming to US differently than the passengers going out of US. I noticed that the crew was giving menu cards for dinner when coming back to US. Food quality is very ad, quantity is small also. same story with snacks. they don't offer enough food overall. The crew should be trained better for int'l passengers."

Pros: "From start to finish the whole process with Qatar Airways was smooth and excellent."

Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "it makes my trip wonderful. Thanks quatar airlines and kayak"

Pros: "boarding was okay"
Cons: "BA operated flight. cannot compete with Qatar Airways, even if the ticket is a Qatar ticket."

Pros: "Food, service and hospitality all top class. They made my long trip home a breeze!"

Cons: "Na"

Pros: "Boarding team was considerate with hand baggage and also as we were with a toddler they understood the need of extra wieght."
Cons: "Food menu wasnt good."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "The food is good. The services provided by the staff is good."

Pros: "Decency of ground and check in crew"

Pros: "Flights out of and to Philadelphia cuts out the whole traveling to and from NY or DC. This is a big plus for me since I live in Delaware."

Pros: "Things I liked: 1) Ample leg room in economy. I liked the 3-3-3 seating arragement. The cabin was very comfy. 2) Friendly staff overall 3)Good quality food"
Cons: "1) The reading lights for my seat didn't turn on despite repeated reset by airline crew. Ditto for all passengers in Row 31 D-F. 2)Antiquated personalized screen for entertainment.When compared to Etihad and Emirates, this is way below par. 3)I was told mango juice was not available only for them to serve it later with regular meals. 4) I had left my coat with staff at the front to be picked up on my way out. While other airlines wait with the coat on your way out, Qatar made me wait to hand over my coat. I was one of the last passengers to deplane."

Pros: "Business class on Emirates is always top-class. Very comfortable. Friendly crew. Easy boarding and disembarking. Good drinks. What's not to like?"
Cons: "Food was a less impressive menu due to COVID, more like what you'd get in economy class. But we can't blame the crew for not wanting to do close-up personal service like in the past, during a pandemic. We enjoyed another drink to make up for the lower quality food!"

Cons: "Offer cappuccino along with coffee, tea, and juice."

Cons: "The guy on the second flight was a bit creepy"

Pros: "Nice service and excellent staff will recommend Emirates airline to everybody"

Pros: "Brought me to liberty. The Kingdom of Thailand. Great Airline. Reasonable Price. Excellent treatment at Dubai international airport. TSA was also good at Liberty International Airport."
Cons: "Long boarding lines at Liberty International Airport."

Pros: "The person behind me didn’t have enough space so I could recline back and get comfortable"
Cons: "More spacial seats"

Pros: "Crew was efficient and kept a busy flight organized."

Pros: "Nothing. Will never fly with emirates again"
Cons: "Disaster from start to finish. Use qatar much better public service. And make an effort to get you on connecting flight"

Pros: "The ground staff at Emirates check-in counter who so kindly changed my seating to isle as requested and updated my Skywards membership nbr on their data base. It enabled me to board the flight amongst the 1st and business class passengers."
Cons: "Nothing in Particular"

Pros: "Everything else"
Cons: "Cabin crew seemed less approachable than usual"

Pros: "Staff were friendly. Aeroplane clean"
Cons: "Lack of space, I sat against the fuselage and moving around is very difficult. Taking my bag from under the seat is nearly impossible."

Pros: "Personalized service"
Cons: "Sound kept going of on movie"

Pros: "Ease of boarding, tasty food, and plenty of entertainment."

Cons: "Delays boarding meant we were almost 30 mins late arriving in Wellington. Cramped seats on Qantas 737 plane"

Pros: "The food was great, the in flight entertainment was great, and as a tall person I appreciate that Emirates still provides a decent amount of legroom, even in Economy."
Cons: "Being sandwiched between 2 large men for a 12 hour cuddle."

Pros: "The entertainment options were very good"
Cons: "Bathrooms were dirty. People running over each other to board at TRV airport. Clear and helpful announcements may be needed but the ground staff is mediocre at best"

Pros: "This is the most messed up money making strategy I have seen at airlines."

Pros: "Love the A380 - the sheer size of it allowed for more personal space. Consequently, it was a much more comfortable flight."

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Nothing wrong"

Pros: "Decent leg room in economy; good entertainment system & food/drink"
Cons: "I was expecting to pay for only 10 kg excess baggage according to my own scale but was charged for 15 kg and the check-in staff was rude and unwilling to listen; in-flight staff were not polite, pushing past passengers without any word; such a disappointment as I expected much higher standard of service and courtesy. Nothing beats Singapore Airlines."

Cons: "Services must be improved as far as hospitality is. Concern"

Pros: "Clean cabin, polite Attendants, fast internet and great food and drinks."
Cons: "None at all"

Pros: "Didn’t get this flight as we were so delayed."

Pros: "Overall a good experience. Flight did not appear to be overlong,mostly due to ambience in"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "We had good seats & crew were friendly, but not as good as the Sydney to Dubai crew"
Cons: "The lateness of our departure with no reason given from Dubai."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Cabin temperature in the Economy section was too cold with cold air blasting from AC vents The staff did nothing to change this in spite of several requests from different passengers"

Cons: "seats should be roomier for such a long flight"

Cons: "The ac wasn't working properly just hot air being blown"

Pros: "Overall the experience was good! The Emirates team are thorough professionals."
Cons: "When we have connecting flights to other destinations, there should be a minimum time gap of 2 hours. We had only 1 hour and 25 minutes at Dubai to catch our India flight and our in New York started late by nearly an hour....worrying us! Though the delay was made good during the NY Dubai flight, there was no assurance from the Captain about this when we left NY....and we were doing calculations throughout the 14 hour flight!"

Pros: "Legroom and how attentive and pleasant the fight crew was."

Pros: "Great crew good food"
Cons: "Crew was not really engaging with a smile. Seemed like they were avoiding longer conversation or even eye contact."

Cons: "Not having an aisle seat made it very difficult for my handicapped husband to get in and out of his seat. We had to wait for our neighbors to step out of their seat and take advantage to do the same. Felt very claustrophobic. Service was not good, we rang the bell several times to get some help and no one came to our assistance and we gave up after that. The crew told us they had run out of some juices that we would have liked."

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: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The seats."
Cons: "Firstly, the attitude of the staff was beyond comprehension. From the get go, they all looked as if they were working at gunpoint. Secondly, the food was inedible. Over salty, bland, and above all, they ran out of food. On an aircraft the size of an A380, one would like to assume that there will be enough food for people who are stuck and afraid of asking for anything from the moody staff. I have been travelling with Emirates for years now and insisted on flying it this time around upon much disapproval from my peers and family. My experience proved them right. I am still in complete shock and dismay. On a 12+ hour journey if I have to witness the staff rolling their eyes and where the passengers have to think twice before asking to be served, I think that's not right. Shame on you Emirates."

Pros: "Good food, pretty nice staff. Entertainment options were plentiful too. Seats were fine also."

Pros: "Being able to sleep comfortably Great staff Food good rather than great but not easy on flight. Well chosen good wines. Chauffeur service to & from airport Ease of checkin"

Cons: "How one of your crew member expressed herself to another crew member regarding the passenger next to me. just because he asked her what type of vegetable were in the eggs. Your crew member was very inconsiderate. All she had to do was answer the question and not make any other comment to her co-worker (Joyanne) about how she wish they (meaning ) passengers would read the menu. I was very disappointed about her comment. Even worst, to see how inconsiderate she was and how she did not even considered if this gentleman could read, or did not have his eyewear. I believe her comment was unnecessary and inappropriate at the time. I could not quite get her name, but she does not need to deal with the public."

Pros: "Very clean and comfortable. Staff very attentive."
Cons: "Many sick passengers on board."

Pros: "Food good"

Cons: "food was not served on time. crew was not attentive and did not care for passengers"

Pros: "Free meal. Free drinks. Not packed so it was comfortable. Great accomodating staff, they were definately amazing even in economy. Power at every seat to charge devices a great list of movies shows etc... food was great tasting and good portion. I enjoyed this flight more than american, delta or any of the big name companies. They should strive to be this good."

Pros: "The flight was great. The seats were spacious and comfortable."

Cons: "The complimentary food coupons don't clearly mention what is covered and not and it is a hassle to figure out with airport vendors on what the meal means when there are a lot of options. If the voucher also has a dollar value it will make it easier to know. The Indian restaurants at Gates C should be taken off this list. They were rude and generally left a bad taste in the mouth."

Cons: "Baggage took almost 2 hours to get out at return destination"

Pros: "Entertainment, lounge.."

Pros: "Service leg space"
Cons: "Nothing much"

Pros: "* Comfortable seating * Genial and efficient staff * Outstanding variety of in-flight entertainment * Price!"

Cons: "Very poor wifi even if I paid for it."

Cons: "For a flagship airline, a in seat screen should be a given. This is not a budget airline."

Cons: "The food service was not great. They should increase the frequency of meals. Got the worst seats both time. The seats are old and recliner doesn’t come forward as it should"

Pros: "Great crew, food, lots of free wine"
Cons: "Nothin"

Cons: "Qantas always gives great service"

Pros: "- decent wine, fresh fruit, in-seat entertainment, smooth flight"
Cons: "- audio was buzzy, seats very thin, bathrooms not stocked with paper towels"

Cons: "More entertainment options"

Cons: "More leg room and space between seats is needed."

Pros: "The seats were smaller which is fine for a 1.5 hr flight but if I had to compare it to the first leg of the trip, these things stick out."
Cons: "The flight time seemed late. The plane was already there, the airport was empty and the gate was full. It would’ve been nicer if it was a little earlier, although getting through customs again might not be as easy for some people on a 3 hour layover?"

Pros: "The seats had more room than the bigger planes. We were offered a very nice sandwich for lunch There was cool air pumped around the plane from the moment we boarded"
Cons: "This flight was pleasant, so nothing to worry about."

Cons: "Ran out of fruit for breakfast"

Pros: "The seats were comfy."
Cons: "I booked through Budget Air and was initially online able to confirm seats and meals for my husband and I online with Qantas easily. Months out my flight was cancelled and I was rebooked onto a later flight that would have made us miss all of our transfers to our honeymoon on Fitzroy Island. Because I had booked through 'a 3rd party' Qantas refused to assist me. I managed to convince budget air to change our flights. We were moved to a jetstar flight from Melbourne to cairns. I had to confirm that this had occurred and go through multiple people online to reallocate seats and food options for my husband and myself again. Only my luggage allowance was carried across to jetstar and neither of our meal allowances were. When it came to online check-in with jetstar I could not check my husband in online only myself. I spoke to multiple people online who all confirmed they didn't know why or there was no problem and we should just present ID and check in in person. When we got to the airport Qantas had not transferred the e-ticket code across for my husband's booking and this is why we could not check him in online. The jetstar staff had to try to get his original booking code from Qantas. As it turned out I had to original booking code through budget Air in my hand and had to assert this information to staff. Flying back we were able to check in online fine with Qantas. Our boarding passes printed different sizes but did not present a problem when we dropped off our luggage. When we sent to check in the staff member couldn't get the smaller pass to read and my husband had to assert that he also had it on his phone. Despite all of my online conversations the aisle seat was allocated to me and not my husband who required it because of a medical condition and the flight was 30min delayed. We won't be traveling with Qantas or jetstar, or booking through budget Air again."

Pros: "The food was decent"
Cons: "The entertainment system didn't work or was buggy for the entire flight and while we got an apology, we got no other compensation. Also, with 2 hours left in the flight, the flight attendants loudly woke everyone up in the plane and forcefully raised everyone's seats, even if they were asleep, so that they could serve breakfast to everyone. That was an incredibly rude awakening."

Cons: "food wasn't good"

Pros: "Flight attendants where quality in their delivery of service Food was good (Chicken salad)"
Cons: "Staff that maned the gate clearly a novice or untrained. His coworker seemingly not bothered if the job was done correctly or not. Resulting in multiple bags being lost. And not just mine, at least 4 people had baggage lost due to lack of care and attention Absolutely dier."

Pros: "Twice this trip, 2 qantas staff rectified our seating allocation so we could sit together as a family and i didn't even have to ask. The staff are always so pleasant and engaging."
Cons: "A mishap when allocating seats online, when i chose seats for us online (my fault i left it too late) there weren't any together...but the staff rectified this..."

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delayed by an hour. Gate change to a gate too small to accommodate people. Food was pretty ordinary. Seats very cramped."

Pros: "Watched movies to pass the time. Trip uneventful but 2 hours late"
Cons: "The announcements by cabin crew on board were hard to understand as English not first language"

Pros: "Excellent service and helpful staff."
Cons: "Some seats including mine did not recline, looked like the engineering service have missed checking mechanisms."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight being cancelled"

Pros: "Friendly crew Comfy space Reasonable food Boarding was easy"
Cons: "Would have liked to be offered a second hot drink or would like the cups to be a bit bigger. Fresh food"

Pros: "Staff were friendly."
Cons: "A tiny pla? A bumpy flight. You should get the heads up about such small planes."

Cons: "I paid to select aisle seating but upon board found out my seating was the middle seat."

Pros: "A crew member saw that I was crying upon departure and left a stack of tissues in the seat next to me. Then the crew member checked on me later to make sure I was ok. It was very nice and touching."
Cons: "My chicken was raw in my lunch."

Pros: "Staff were friendly. Enjoyed getting a meal included in the ticket for everyone."
Cons: "Could be more of a range of movies to watch"

Pros: "In flight entertainment had a good selection"
Cons: "Delayed and missed connecting flight. As a result had to pay for a new one. Placed in the last row of economy so I could sit with my partner. Lied to by the check in counter. Disappointed by qantas yet again!"

Pros: "Everything."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly, cabin crew were friendly and helpful. Food was tasty, but portion rather small."
Cons: "Didn't like that every time someone nearby used the entertainment - watched a film I think, my film changed."

Cons: "They did not have vegetarian food in spite of my request."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours. Passengers were given "meal" vouchers for terminal restaurants but they weren't valid on alcohol (which was needed after 4 hours of waiting!) Boarding was chaotic with everyone anxious to GO! Crew was cranky."

Pros: "Tivi was broken"
Cons: "the crew gave me 50.00$ credit back to next fly I am very impress"

Pros: "Food was better than expected, recommend qantas to others based on this alone"
Cons: "Qantas safety video was to long... painful to watch. i would love ro see airlines start recycling the waste generated in fliht"

Pros: "It was comfortable"
Cons: "I couldn't request a vegan meal online for some reason & once i got to the airport it was too late so i went hungry"

Cons: "Not told that pretty much the only in flight entertainment required downloading the qantas app"

Pros: "I lucked out and was able to get a emergency row seat which helped tremendously because of having long legs."
Cons: "What I don't like is what is true of all airlines now and that is that if you are born with long legs you are penalized and expected to pay more money than people with short legs - that is prejudice and not fair to people that cannot do anything about it. I understand charging obese people extra because they have a chance to change it. Also, seats are too narrow now!!!"

Pros: "I lucked out and was able to get a emergency row seat which helped tremendously because of having long legs."
Cons: "What I don't like is what is true of all airlines now and that is that if you are born with long legs you are penalized and expected to pay more money than people with short legs - that is prejudice and not fair to people that cannot do anything about it. I understand charging obese people extra because they have a chance to change it. Also, seats are too narrow now!!!"

Pros: "Despite very difficult and stressing transfer process and delay of connecting flight for 1 hour, we arrived on time to JFK. The crew was very nice. The food was good."
Cons: "The time for transfer was absolutely not sufficient, because there were long lines everywhere, no signs where to go next. Only at the end of a very long way there was a representative of Quantas to show us the way. We were very nervous because of uncertainty and came late to the gate. Then it turned out that there were many people behind us. The plane was waiting for them for about an hour. Finally, everybody came. It would be much more logical, if from the beginning the connecting flight to JFK was postponed to some more appropriate time."

Pros: "As I stated previously, I am blind and found the special assistance Qantas offers invaluable. Every crew member I interacted with was polite, thoughtful, warm, attentive, and extremely helpful."

Pros: "They made us sit in the plane for close to 4 hours without any food. I almost passed out as the plane was so warm (AC broken) and they didn't give us anything except a small cup of water. The delayed made me miss my connection which couldn't be rearranged."
Cons: "Good was awful but I appreciated that they had gluten free options."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "The complete lack of space between seats Old style plane Very average new movie selection"

Cons: "Plane departs at 1pm Sydney. Lights are turned off within a couple of hours, but for me, sleeping at 3pm is impossible. Point being? A later departure would be a help. Clearly not going to happen, but the timing of the flight to Sydney from DFW had been awesome."

Pros: "Excellent service from crew with adequate concern for hydration of passengers. Food was very good for airline fare."
Cons: "Seat was not very comfortable and I was able to get much sleep on the 14 hr flight"

Pros: "I arrived in Melbourne 9 hours after I was scheduled to. The flight was severely delayed out of NYC and then I missed my connection out of LA and flew to Sydney instead. I was offered a $20 voucher for food at jfk, and that was it."
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "I liked that they accommodated my dietary restrictions"
Cons: "I didn't like the seating. It was really cramped"

Cons: "1. Qantas was not interested in the fact that we were seniors and and that we were distress from our flight from USA. KAYAK SEND THESE COMMENTS ON TO QANTAS My phone no here in New Zealand is 0223446325 I can be contacted on this no. for more comment."

Pros: "Quick layover"
Cons: "Food used to be so much better."

Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "Seats are cramped. Entertainment was slow, limited selection and didn't work in a bunch of our seats. Flight was delayed 3 almost 4 hours and threw off the sleeping plan for our kids. No explanation other than " we are running late" and no compensation."

Pros: "It was a Qantas flight not an Emirates flight for your correct information."
Cons: "I was hoping to be on board an Emirates plane notQantas msybe another time"

Cons: "food was probably the worst airline food that I have ever tried to eat. Wasn't even able or wanted to eat it."

Cons: "I'm a qantas frequent flyer and have always been loyal. But next trip, I will try a different carrier (Etihad, Emirates even Singapore). Standards have slipped, customer care is lacking. I heard this from people I was sitting with as well, so not just my opinion."

Pros: "Great check in, comfy plane, with arm rests that go fully up, even when the plane is taking off and landing."
Cons: "The lamb meatballs with couscous was the worst tasting thing I've ever eaten on a plane ever."

"My luggage got delayed, trying to reach out the airline and no updates for me where my luggage is and when it will be delivered to me."

Pros: "Nothing. I missed my original connection because the flight from Budapest was late and I was put in a cramped middle seat while there were seats open in First Class. I should have been upgraded"
Cons: "Upgrade passengers that you make late."

Cons: "The ife screen was extremely slow and unresponsive."

Pros: "Flight attendant warm, courteous and authoritative at same time."
Cons: "Seat hard. Space tight. I am 6’4”"

Cons: "Service desk personnel at the gate were very helpful and attentive. The plane was only 1/2-2/3 full, which made boarding quicker. The food was tasty and coffee was great! We were also offered juice twice during the flight. Bathrooms were clean. Since the plane wasn't full, they weren't dirty even at the end of the flight. I brought my own headphones, but the stewards provided them if you need them. My one big complaint was that our seats did not recline, thus making any kind of shut-eye near impossible. Our plane left and hour late, but the pilots stepped on the gas and we got in on time!"

Pros: "Nearly all Flights on time"

Pros: "a320 was comfortable"

Pros: "We had a Lufthansa pilot sitting with us on his was back to Frankfurt. He was definitely good company and taught us a lot about how the airline worked, his family's history working with airlines, and life stories. The flight definitely went fast thanks to Daniel!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was sick so couldn’t fly, spoke to customer care and they refused to let me change my flight"

Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "food was great. Flight staff was attentive, Flight was on time, and plane was clean. Awesome experience."

Cons: "Food on flight Detroit - Frankfurt was terrible."

Pros: "One of flight attendants lent me her phone charger to charge my phone which absolutely saved and they were just generally very pleasant and easy to interact with."

Pros: "I did get my meal request for the 2nd leg."

Pros: "Poor customer service dealing with bag delayed for 5 days, almost all of my holiday was over by the time the bag came and I was promised my bag would arrive on day 2, 3 and 4. Didn't arrive til 5th day"
Cons: "Late baggage, incompetent staff who each told me a different lie about when the bag would arrive"

Cons: "Incorrect advice from check in staff at Dublin re transit visa requirements"

Pros: "Courteous and friendly staff - did enjoy my gluten free meal"
Cons: "Economy seats leave no room for relaxed arms - i had mine in front of me for 9 hours as the seat was SO small! As am I!!"

Cons: "I was not allowed to take my cabin bag and was forced to check it in at the checkin counter. The reason mentioned to me was the flight is small. Contradictorily, travellers after me in the queue were allowed to take cabin bags."

Pros: "on time"

Pros: "Flight was on time. We boarded and left on time. Flight attendants were friendly and courteous. I was happy to get a complementary sandwich and drink on such a short flight. We arrived at our destination earlier than expected. Seats were no frills, but decent. Overall good experience."
Cons: "Boarding is stressful. A free for all. I wish they would announce and board one section at a time. I'm traveling with children! I don't want extra stress of people being so pushy. Also,on arrival the bus back to the terminal was similar."

Pros: "It was all great!"

Cons: "Our flight was scheduled to leave at 7:00 a.m. We arrived at the airport at 4:00 a.m. to check in. When we tried to check in the lady told us our reservation was canceled. Luckily an airport employee worked his magic and had us added back onto that flight."

Cons: "I was denied boarding on the Dublin to Munich leg of my connecting flight from Newark to Munich. My ticket was booked through Lufthansa, but the transatlantic leg of my trip was operated by United. When checking in with United in Newark, I received two boarding passes, one for each leg of the trip. I arrived on time in Dublin for my flight to Munich and tried to board the plane for Munich with the boarding pass I had printed in Newark. After scanning my ticket, the Lufthansa employees at the gate informed me that they had no record of me or my plane ticket in their system. I showed them the email confirmation for my ticket, but they still could not find any record of my ticket in their online system. The employees seemed more concerned with boarding all passengers as quickly as possible than assisting me. After being denied boarding, I had to go back through passport control to change my flight, and ended up getting to Munich nearly 6 hours behind schedule and missed an entire day of vacation. A Lufthansa employee told me that out of every partner in the STAR alliance, United is the ONLY airline they have had this problem with. I find this inexcusable, I will be AVOIDING ANY United/Lufthansa connecting flight from now on."

Cons: "The staff was very unfriendly and they had inconsistent rules with carry on baggage."

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Flight delayed by over 3 hours, inflight entertainment did not work"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly and eager to help, as I was traveling alone with a baby"

Pros: "The experience was fantastic, can not critique at all. They made a 14 hour flight a great experience and even a 5hr layover be relaxing. It will be hard to travel with other companies now"
Cons: "It will be hard to travel with another airline"

Cons: "To be waitlisted till gate openes"

Cons: "They forgot the luggage at Frankfurt."

Pros: "Was given an upgraded seat due to the confusion on my confirmed seat being given away."
Cons: "Confusion on my confirmed seat assignment caused major frustration when in a foreign country. We took off late so missed my shuttle in Seattle so had to wait 2 hours for the next shuttle."

Pros: "I liked when I thought I had my new booking."
Cons: "When I found out that I was a week late for my flight. Argh! Stuck in the airport at the moment."

Pros: "Good entertainment selection"

Pros: "Good service except added an extra flight to my trip and"
Cons: "Pilot strike rerouted added a flight and 12 HRs"

Pros: "New crew on first flight but they we're even"
Cons: "Not much. Left sitting on a plane for over an hour & 1/2. Then taken into a door where I illegally entered the country. My passports seized. No other flight available to Dallas. Sent to Newark, NJ & missed the next flight to Dallas because Lufthansa lost my scooter. Someone pulled it by a wire and it doesn't run correctly. VERY BAD EXPERIENCE!!!"

Pros: "the crew was good"
Cons: "the food was poor"

Cons: "2 1/2 hour wait while boarded then missed flights in toronto. Toronto airport a mess! Unclear directions and procedues."

Pros: "Good entertainment options, large bathroom area on a lower level"
Cons: "Food options and space"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I wasn't even on this airline my booking reference said that I was. I had this airlines flight number I go to the gate to check in, and then for me I'm on Air Canada. This was a mass from the start I will never use this airline or Air Canada again they ruin my login and told me it's still usable we had a delayed for three hours on the plane. Never never again!"

Pros: "Roomy flight, professional crew, great service."
Cons: "Check in with an extra bag or overweight baggage is cumbersome. You must first check in, then take bag elsewhere to pay fee, then take bag back to check in."

Cons: "Delayed - but made up for later!"

Pros: "The crew was very kind."
Cons: "There was a lack of communication with boarding and there was no one to check us in at the airport. We are paying you thousands of dollars, perhaps you could have someone check people in."

Pros: "Efficiency, courtesy, professionalism."
Cons: "none"

Pros: "the flight was on time"
Cons: "After flying Lufthansa from Frankfurt to San Francisco this was dissapointing,old plane,service was just soso."

Pros: "Crew wonderful.N"
Cons: "None for now."

Pros: "quick entry - but it was not a full flight!"

Pros: "Business class lay flat seats allow sleep. Staff tries to pamper you with good service. Smooth long flight 10hrs40min and flight left 30 min late and still arrived early 40 min."
Cons: "Online checkin requires passport check at airport so you try but cannot print boarding pass. Online would not let me order gluten free vegetarian meal for daughter, but staff at terminal said oh it is too late now, you need 24 hrs notice... on flight though they figured it out and brought her foods she could eat so it worked out ok."

Cons: "Food needs a taster to approve it. Not in the laboratory but on the plane"

Pros: "The pilots gave details of flying conditions and landing conditions. Flight was smooth and on time"

Pros: "Crew was great and movie selection was good. And the food was also good"
Cons: "It was all good!"

Cons: "Aer Lingus webpage is terrible. Kayak’s is excellent, but I tried to change seats, it would not let me."

Pros: "Really liked the flight staff.. great service and all very humorous. More room than on most flights and everything was on time"

Pros: "Service manager Alan and crew were lovely, very friendly and felt genuinely happy to help us. I have never been given so much free stuff on a plane before! The snacks and beverage offerings just kept coming. I enjoyed my warm meal. Entertainment offerings were good, and as we were on a newer plane the technology was better than other flights I’ve been on."
Cons: "Seats could have been a bit more comfortable and roomy, but they were decent and I didn’t have too much trouble sleeping."

Cons: "Could have been on time - 40 minutes late"

Pros: "Crew very friendly. Decent leg room in economy"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "no communication and a few apologies6"

Cons: "Tough time. British airways wasn’t very helpful. Once our gate was changed no one told us or gave new boarding pass. We did have 7 hours to figure it out. But a clue where to go would have been nice. Missed my connection. Shuttle and hotel was a mess. Got a few hours of sleep outside the airport. Maybe I’ll get to Los Angeles soon."

Pros: "Ability to prclear customs, that’s about it........."
Cons: "Going from Air Lingus to American Airlines - they were unable to coordinate our checked baggage. The AA gate agent had no idea what to do. Unsurprisingly, when we landed our bags did not. We are still waiting to see where they are and if we get them back. It seemed that even though we asked and were reassured several times, the team at AA was unable to deal with the luggage transfer"

Cons: "Could you refund me 50.00 as your price included bag price but when directed to book I had to add on bags for a further 50.00 and because of this they wouldn’t let me get on an earlier flight on my return sueevans999@hotmail.com or 07799411994 for response"

Pros: "The customer agents were helpful and just great"
Cons: "That out of 4 agents and the manager one simple agent wasn’t as nice"

Cons: "We were told that those boarding and didn’t need carry on luggage. We went to do so and was told to get in line. When we got in line and up to go on plane, the person (a lady) told us we couldn’t."

Pros: "Overall it was fine. Friendly staff, everything pretty efficient."
Cons: "Truly disappointed to find that BA has decided to charge for ANY beverage whatsoever, even tea. I have such fond memories of flying BA years ago. My husband and I so enjoyed the disposable plastic blue teacups that we brought them home with us and still use them as kitchen scoops all these years later. I know that may seem silly, but even without that nostalgic memory, it just feels SUPER unpleasant to have to pay for the basic (non-alcoholic) beverage service. Honestly, just charge a few bucks extra on the ticket in the first place."

Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "Waiting for an hour to disembark"

Pros: "The staff was nice"
Cons: "You've got to pay for a can of ginger ale now? When did British Airways become a budget airline? What a joke. The plain is an old outfitting with flip down screens and whatnot. It's not like we need these things for shorter fights, but why would anyone pay more to fly a nicer airline if you're treated like you're on Ryan Air?"

Pros: "Food ok"
Cons: "No tv in headrest, also outlets didn’t work, almost lost my mind"

Pros: "Gate agents good. Same with cabin crew"
Cons: "No AC charging. Legroom in business was tight"

Pros: "Flight left almost on time and arrived on time. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Wasn't able to select a seat ahead of time like with other airlines. Seat rows way too tight (even for a normal 130 lb person like me). No good movie options, very limited selection. Food pretty bad, but that's almost expected this day and age."

Pros: "The flight attendants were great, helpful and polite. The food was delicious and there was planty leg room. A great airline to fly with and I'd highly recommend them."
Cons: "Nothing, all was great."

Pros: "Great staff, ultra professional"

Pros: "Finally getting to my destination 3 hours late."
Cons: "Issues with check-in, flight delayed multiple times, gate changes multiple times, non communication from attendants."

Cons: "Small plane"

Cons: "The change of seats with the motove of keeping balance on the plane"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable and roomy."

Pros: "Nothing. British Airways refused to help us"
Cons: "Took over two hours on the phone to try and get rebooked. Missed the last flight out of the night due to incompetence. British Airways desk check in staff was so rude, wouldn't even talk to us. Thank goodness for the helpful Air Canada grind crew in Toronto."

Pros: "This was a BA codeshare but operated by AerLingus,supposedly a 4* airline."
Cons: "So called 4*"

Pros: "All staff were very helpful and polite"
Cons: "This flight was delayed. When it came to boarding my husband who needs special assistance was first taken to board first but then had to be brought back as refuelling was not done and was then last on board. When we arrived at Heathrow his special assistance was not there and we had to wait for about 10/15 minutes. It is stressful traveling with someone who needs help and even worse when there are delays. We were advised that we could leave the aircraft which we did but we were left waiting in an area without any toilets which is a problem for him"

Pros: "Good to have movies to pass time on lng flight."
Cons: "2 days prior to returnflight I called stating the at was not enough time to catch a flight transfer having to go thru tsa again . B A assurred me I was o.k. ..It was not. A person should not have to physically run and have stress of wait to get thru TSA then run again back,get on train to next plane.Other passengers then said "ou are why we are starting late". It was a transfer off a plane from Ireland not a traffic issue. BA SHOULD HAVE PUT ME ON A LATER FLIGHT. TO SEATTLE."

Pros: "The snack provided onboard was tasty. The flight attendants took their job seriously."
Cons: "Southwest Airlines style seating with a foldable tray table over a middle seat. Sold as a business class cabin at a high price for an hour and a half flight but we left feeling ripped off. No boarding order and overall chaos boarding. I feel that for the price and being advertised as business class I was taken for a ride so to speak, and not in a good way. This would not qualify as business class on any other airline irregardless of how short the leg was."

Pros: "Prop plane but on time with professional staff"

Pros: "Attendance were friendly and helpful and courteous. The plane was clean and we arrived ahead of schedule."

Pros: "Generally I like the staff at BA and they are mostly on time"

Cons: "We are really upset that Aer Lingus and/or Bitish Airways lost our baggeage! All our clothes, toiletries, medicine, and other personal belongings are MIA and we want these two airlines to work together and expedite finding and tertuning our luggage."

Pros: "British Airways offered me a direct flight from Dublin to Philadelphia on their sister carrier American Airlines."

Pros: "Connection desk and gate attendance were the only people who tried to help fix the mistakes made by the people in madrid. Global access allowed to quicken our time spent going home after the mets that was our flight home."
Cons: "the attendant at the connection desk did not understand why we had not been given boarding passes or allowed to check in to our flights in madrid. the gate attendants did not understand that even though we were numbers 72 and 73 person processed we were not allowed to check in, receive boarding passes or allowed to sit next to my sister who's reservation was connected to mine"

Pros: "Aer Lengus is great. Complete contrast with the trip from the US to Heathrow with BA-D. That leg was horrible, one of top two worst over my 30+?years of traveling internationally Viva Aer Lengus comfort and customer relations, what a difference with BA-Disastrous customer support in Heathrow"
Cons: "Aer Lengus is great"

Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly crew, good food, individual entertainment consoles, and plane was not very crowded."
Cons: "Extra charge for items traditionally included on trans-Atlantic flights, entertainment choices dated and limited, assigned seating clumped travelers together instead of spreading them out among available travelers."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "1. BA said I couldn't get a seat before 24 hrs before. Then when I tried to get a seat assignment I was told (by email) to contact Aer Lingus. Aer Lingus said that I should have called before 24 hrs before, and that seats were now in control of the gate (this still 22 hrs before flight time). Total lack of coordination. 2. At check-in I was first told that my bag was too big for carry-on, although BA had accepted it. I shrunk it down. Then I was told it weighed too much at 15 kg. When I asked why BA accepted the weight I was told BA's weight limit was different. 3. Net net, if BA is "arranging" the flight through a code-share it should have responsibility for insuring I am treated like a BA customer. Aer Lingus' customer treatment leads much to be desired."

Pros: "swift boarding allowed for an earlier departure and arrival 30min ahead of scheduled time"
Cons: "I waited 30min at the priority check in queue while being first in line this whole time. There was only one counter open for normal check in and one for priority when I arrived and after 20min waiting, the priority counter closed completely and there was just one counter open remaining, with just 10-15min before the check in closed. We had to wait another 10min to be able to check in our luggage! On arrival, luggage took 45min to just start delivering, completely wiping out the 30min arrival ahead of schedule."

Pros: "Staff was pleasant."
Cons: "Website didn't work for online checkin. Flight only half full but somehow I was assigned to the coldest seat on the plane with an exit door obstructing legroom. Toilets were out of order and only one was available for most of an eight-hour flight. Airline charged for drinks. Food (chicken stew in a brown gravy?) was repellant. Entertainment choices dated and uninteresting. Luggage lost, with one agent available to slowly help more than 30 people. Luggage missing for over 24 hours. No response from airline. Enough."

Pros: "Everything was fine."
Cons: "Small seats."

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: "The boarding process was better than I expected in such a large plane. There were multiple lanes open to check in at the gate."
Cons: "The crew were not very attentive or polite when asked a question or for help. Then tended to go up and down the aisle with their carts with out stopping or offering anything and if someone asked them for a drink or something they would tell the, they would have to come back. The food on this trip was terrible and not well planned out. They ran out of the meat option for dinner before they were even halfway through the plane. At least 100 people had no food option. What was left was something with a cheese sauce cooked into it so it stunk with the foil was peeled back. I would have preferred the traditional peanut package to that."

Cons: "The plane was old, so the entertainment system was buggy. It flickered, got loud then quiet and would reset over and over again."

Cons: "We were late taking off due to the airport and plane not sharing passenger data, and then forced to delay exiting the plane and then forced to sit on a bus rather than enter the terminal."
