Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Better movie selection. Better organized boarding in Frankfurt"
Pros: "Crew was super nice and the food was good (for plane food)! Really appreciated that they had snacks and chocolate on hand for hungry passengers throughout the flight. A 17 hour plane ride is never the best, but Singapore Air made it as pleasant as possible. Also, we booked on Kayak and was routed through a third party vendor JustFly, which I was a little worried about - but our booking went off without a hitch."
Pros: "Good food. Friendly staff efficient airports."
Cons: "Confusion at check in on baggage constrains. Conflict between what the agent told us and what was documented on our ticket contract. Plane very cold Unable to recline seats for much of the flight under guidance of flight attendants. Unable to sleep as a result."

Cons: "My flight was delayed by 2 hours so I missed my connecting flight in Singapore. There was a huge queue of people who missed their connecting flight cos of an accident in the runway. The airline did nothing to prepare for this situation. It took hours to get another flight organised, communication was non existent and refreshments took ages to come. Airline didn't help with finding a hotel for stranded passengers."

Most of the times the nonveg meals were over . This is not the first time . Every time they complain things in Menu are over . I am stuck to fly this airlines for mileage"
Pros: "I had a fast and easy check-in at Denpasar airport. In flight service by cabin crew was very good, as I normally get in the business class at Emirates. Flight left Denpasar on time and arrived in Auckland some 30 mins early, which was nice. Enjoyed a late dinner - the mie goreng ayam was particularly tasty!"
Cons: "In the past on overnight flights Emirates I have received a pyjama set in the Business Class, which made it very comfortable to sleep. But this time this was not given, so I had to sleep in my day-wear, which was a bit uncomformtable."
Pros: "Obviously Biz Class is a great proposition for a flight of this length and once again the experience was a good one. Staff are always friendly and very attentive."
Cons: "We are not big eaters but when you leave at 10am then a lunch and breakfast is a bit of a stretch and even with light snack options we found ourselves hungry. Breakfast was not too flash"

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "All of the above"
Cons: "Nothing that i didn't like"
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: "Footrest would be good for a long haul flight."
Cons: "Noise of serving some people dinner in middle of night interfered with sleep. Deep dip South meant no internet for much of the flight lots of noise and inconvenience trying to fix Tvnz for (rude) lady in front"

Pros: "Really liked the long journey. Was a bit nervous given the 15 hour flight but was pleasantly surprised. Service was good as well."
Cons: "The crew were really young and not very talkative."
Pros: "The plane was spacious and we had really good seats , next to the toilet and wall in front of us. Super, as we were traveling with a toddler and he was able to sit on the floor in front of us and play with his toys. Food came out promptly and was tasty. Loved the goodies for the kids, little blanket and scotch pad."
Cons: "The delay in boarding! It’s hard work when traveling with a toddler."
Pros: "Good facilities, food and entertaniment. Seat comfort not so good."
Pros: "The service, food and boarding were all excellent. It brought back the joy of flying like what used to know in the 80s."
Pros: "The food was good and the service was great. I also had a great seat in the front row."
Cons: "We were delayed by over 2 hours We had no where to park when we landed so we had to wait for buses to take us toche terminal There was no new and exciting movies that excited me"

Pros: "Great entertainment system. Lots of leg room best airline"
Cons: "Late departure but made up time in flight"
Pros: "The crew were excellent, very helpful and friendly. The most friendly crew I have flown with. Qantas could learn something from Emirates."
Pros: "Food was decent"

Pros: "The entertainment system"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and professional. I want to hightlight the exceptional quality of the meal served"

Cons: "Boarding was a bit disorganized."

Pros: "Comfortable cabin, attentive crew, if somewhat aloof. Food okay, but better than a 2 ounce package of salty pretzel mix for $3! All in all, quite good."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."
Cons: "Plane was dirty, staff seemed rushed and inexperienced, soaps empty in bathroom"
Pros: "love everything about Emirates!"
Pros: "Good flight"
Pros: "The polite behavior of cabin crew."
Cons: "In flight EK 231 dinner is served for passengers at early hours 3.30 after taking off from Dubai. I personally feel this meal is unnecessary as people would have had dinner 3 or 4 hrs earlier."
Pros: "Staff were great. Food was good."
Cons: "I had thought all crew was on training. Service was poor"
Pros: "Like everything"
Cons: "There was only one hour of wifi, seriously? I mean Dubai is one of the nicest airports but maybe whats necessary is to be able to cater and not just put up even more redundant shops which lack people. People are traveling and might actually need to be in contact especially since flights are so spaced out"
Pros: "good services...."
Pros: "A380 was comfortable with good entertainment"

Cons: "Confusion with wrong menus being handed out - on 2 flights!"
Pros: "Crew were lovely"
Cons: "Extremely overweight passenger next to me. It was awful, her body was in contact with me the entire flight. The most uncomfortable, hot, smelly, awkward flight Ive ever experienced. Its time you charge for 2 seats for people that are the size of 2 people. Not fair to other passengers to have to be so inconvenienced and extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Started my Movie on the Ground before takeoff"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and there was absolutely no announcement with everyone lined up at the scheduled departure time. Communication on the delay was non existent. There was one announcement made 10minutes after boarding was suppose to commence to say the boarding will be delayed. No details as to why, approximate time."
Pros: "A380 is so quiet and smooth. Nice to be up the front of the plane, albeit on the lower floor in economy."
Cons: "They should accommodate older ,wheel chair people to take their carry on bag in checking make them more comfortable flight. Help fast boarding."
Pros: "Crew amazing."
Cons: "Food variety should be increased."
Pros: "Cathay Pacífic always high standard"
Pros: "Yup all gud"
Cons: "All gud"
Pros: "The staff at Cathay Pacific were awesome."
Pros: "Really good flight, no complaints here. Friendly and efficient staff."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable with enough leg room even in Economy class. I was late to go through security check-in, but the flight waited for me to board the flight. The on-flight entertainment was excellent."

Cons: "Great service and got back earlier than expected."
Pros: "Familarity with airline"
Cons: "Limited food options. No drinks service."
Pros: "Lots of room, excellent service, decent food. Boarding was uneventful as was the flight itself. We were late taking off, but made up time and landed on time. Only had 1 hour 25 minute layover so was a bit concerned."
Cons: "Cathay Pacific doesn't do a beverage service before serving dinner. I find it odd to get served a cocktail after the first course is served."
Pros: "Second time in less than two years and satisfied on both trips. Good work Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "Crew was nice to direct you to where your seat is. Food was good."
Cons: "Snacks n drinks..water or soda offered after few hrs from dinner. Passengers should not ask for drinks or snack. I mean crackers or biscuits few hrs in mid flight. Even if passengers are mostly asleep, a crew member can walk down aisles with a tray of snacks. This will help some people wha mught not like the food or type 2 diabetic people who needs to eat n drink every 2 to 3 hrs. Signage on boarding gate is not clear. Your flight number and boarding time was in small projected sentences under a huge lettered former destination place."
Pros: "Over all the customer service was accommodating."
Cons: "Never received a notification for flight delay. Online communication was never established"
Pros: "The headline says it all!"
Pros: "A perfect landing/touchdown into Auckland. Great pilot"
Cons: "Passenger immediately behind said that they couldn't watch their movie properly when I wanted to recline my seat for sleeping position. Had to wait!!"
Pros: "Cleanliness and no disruptions"
Cons: "The crew were slow to clear the food trays"
Cons: "The stopover in Hong Kong was longer than I would have liked."
Pros: "Flight was very smooth and pleasant. The entertainment was great with lots of choices. Premium economy seats on A350 was amazing. Very similar to Qants reganal business class on their 737. But how ever the seats on their A330 was average. But otherwise all was good. I would recommend Cathay."
Cons: "The food was very small portion and average in taste. The crew took a wile to take the trays and clear after all ate."
Cons: "Original itinerary was not followed. Flight from manila to hongkong was late. We arrived hongkong and was informed that our flight has been rebooked even though we can see that the plane was still there and staffs are still at the gate. We were transferred to a layover flight from HongKong to Aussie then Aussie to Auckland instead of going straight. Seats was set far apart with no competitions at all. Sorry is not enough for this big hassle."
Pros: "Every aspect was smooth and efficient."
Pros: "All went to schedule and flight attendants very good"
Cons: "Punctuality doesn’t seem to be a priority for Cathay Pacific or Cathay dragon"
Pros: "Boarding crew were very helpful with the wheel chair requirement for my friend who was traveling with me."
Cons: "Crew was passive aggressive. The last thing I want is taking their aggression on me. For simple things such as asking for water and what not. She was like that with other passengers too. The baggage went missing. And I also puked right at the baggage claim for the food I ate in the flight. Over all I had bad experience. Food was bad too."
Pros: "no trouble at all"
Cons: "would like more vegetarian food options on the flight. i didn't think to order ahead but it would have been nice if the food choices had offered more options."
Pros: "The flight was not full so it was a very comfortable flight. We enjoyed the dumplings for breakfast!"
Pros: "The crew is excellent. Travelling with baby and they take care of us attentively"
Cons: "Delayed 30min in the end."
Pros: "The food was excellent. The seats were comfortable (even in economy) and tilted back more than other carriers, making it much easier to sleep. The flight crew were very helpful and concerned with passenger comfort."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the flight was comfortable. There were two service representatives to take me on the golf cart from my gate in Terminal 1 when I landed to the bus departing from Terminal 2 to Terminal 4 where my connection was. It was unexpected, but saved a lot of stress based on the distance I had to travel within the airport to make the connecting flight."
Cons: "They recently moved the Cathay Pacific flights to the new Terminal 4 in Changi in Singapore. The connecting distance was significant to get from the Terminal 1 gate to the bus leaving from Terminal 2 to get to Terminal 4. Changi is usually VERY efficient, but this was a real inconvenience to not have direct transport from T1 to T4. Also, the lines for Cathay are not properly sorted by First/Business and all status frequent flyers. There were no ropes or anything organizing the queue, so there were well over 150 people lined up for the priority boarding with no clear queue. At that point, there is no priority. Time to get better organized."
Pros: "Entertainment was good. There was a lot of movies to choose from."
Cons: "Not enough padding on the seats for long distance travel. Not enough leg room. Not enough baggage bin over top of your seat people from other seats put their luggage on your overhead bins."
Pros: "GOOD SERVICE & FOOD"
Cons: "Seat back did not adjust well. Luggage off loaded by someone in Destination and was difficult to find"
Pros: "The economy seats where comfortable even with a15 hours flight , food was great and warm.Crew were very helpful"
Pros: "- Crew friendly and helpful"
Cons: "- very uncomfortable flight - seated with someone who whined and complained the whole way - could not sleep as the person behind me snored loudly the whole night - Was sitting in the isle seat and kept getting hit in the arm every time the trolley went by"
Pros: "Nice crew. Economy seats ok."
Cons: "Really bad food. Ran out of noodles for breakfast and had the worst 'eggs""
Cons: "lost my luggage"
Pros: "Crews were respectful."
Pros: "The crew service was very."
Pros: "Staff were excellent Food"
Cons: "Delayed over an hour. Poor communication on delay/flight info."
Cons: "No audio/video entertainment."
Pros: "What a difference after getting off BA! Staff wonderful, always happy to help and always a smile. PE seats on new A350 are great, although too much cheap, hard plastic on seat back. Very comfortable with great pitch. Food exceptional and beautifully presented. Dim sum for breakfast was sensational. Pier Business class lounge breathtaking, with several large rooms with different food options, served to you - the fresh made noodles a must - and a staffed, well stocked bar. Absolutely gorgeous space."
Cons: "Surprised (and first time on Cathay I've seen this) toilet was revolting towards end of flight. Movie selection disappointing, as not many new releases and not all that many others."
Pros: "great service"
Cons: "Seats too cram feels like sardines in a can"
Cons: "Child in seat behind hitting screen in back of headrest (play a game on it) while I was trying to sleep in the middle of the night"
Pros: "It was a typical economy flight. Very long and nothing spectacular or terrible."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed extremely frantic. They need to relax. I know it was lot of people to take care of but do things to make it easier. Don't let people bring 2 large bags EACH onto flights. Bring a garbage bag around instead of a tiny 5 inch X 5 inch tray when you are collecting 100s? of people's garbage. When departing a plane, I never have seen so much trash and nonsense all over the floor. Bringing a garbage bag around would definitely eliminate a majority of that, the tray was extremely impractical for such a large amount of passengers."
Pros: "The hard product of seats and plane was really nice. Flying the new A359, very comfortable. Lower cabin pressure felt really nice on the skin. Lie flat beds were a treat, and a massive entertainment system."
Cons: "The food was average. Had some chicken on pasta on the way over, chicken was dry and without sauce. My wife fainted on the flight and the flight attendant wasn't the most reassuring. Also her foot rest broke and they blamed her weight which was mean."
Pros: "I booked the flight at an excellent price. Service is always good."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the cheap price meant my husband and I couldn't sit together for the 15+ hour flight."
Pros: "For the 15 hour flight from Hong Kong, they served two meals and put out snacks and drinks in the galleys in the interim. The dinner was pretty decent, and they gave a small bottle of water along with Hagen Daz ice cream. The seats reclined pretty well for economy class (the bottom of the seat shifted too, which was unexpected). Power outlets at every seat and an extensive entertainment system with movies from Eastern and Western culture."
Cons: "Breakfast was eggs and some nasty looking sausage, neither of which I ate."
Pros: "American pilots"
Pros: "The stewards worked very hard, the pilots did a good job. The food was good too."
Cons: "I think it's cruel that this company (Cathay Pacific) has bragged about these economy seats being comfortable. They are not !!! My back hurt and my knees were killing me because they have you crammed right up to the seats in front you so you feel like you are packed in a sardine can! And you will be in big trouble if you take a window seat and you need to go to the bathroom because then you must be a contortionist to get out of that seat when in flight and everyone has their seat reclined, just horrible!!!"
Pros: "Food, service, in-flight entertainment, and overall feeling of safety and comfort."
Cons: "uncontrolled boarding. One of the flight attendant was rude."
Pros: "I have tried united and delta and for the price this is the best."
Pros: "Smooth, quiet and comfortable overnight flight from Vancouver to JFK"
Cons: "Flight was 3 hours delayed due to technical problems. Then it was moved up 40 min without enough time to have someone get back for boarding. Barely made the flight."
Cons: "Did my check-in 24 hours before to make sure I would have an aisle seat ... Lufthansa changed my seat at last minute to a window seat!!! What a poor customer experience."
Pros: "I loved the abundance of movies you can choose from."
Cons: "I don't know."
Pros: "good crew ok food for airline"
Cons: "despite an outrageous price we had problems registering our luggage economy light never heard of it"
Cons: "Food and rounds for drinks"
Cons: "Lufthansa’s needs to get their staffing act together. It took 1 1/4 hrs to check in due to insufficient staff & then once on board the flight it was announced there was no food available due to staffing shortages"
Pros: "Delayed bad"
Cons: "Keep time scheduled"
Pros: "The crew was the best! Excellent service... kind and caring as well as professional."
Cons: "As always, more space but I was fortunate enough to get an exit row this time, which helped."
Pros: "Very attentive crew. Top notch service and care."
Cons: "Lufthansa business class in the 747 is dated and not the most comfortable. No pods and privacy. Entraînement system at my seat was defective"
Pros: "Crew seem competent, airplane was fairly clean and not too old, food not awful, ac outlets in economy, headphones not the worst."
Cons: "I hate that there's no free checked bag anymore! Two mile walk with heavy bag in Frankfurt. Provide carts in FRA! Crowded: seat pitch small, seats narrow, flight totally full, toilets filthy by the end. IFE: English options boring (German options not subtitled), touch screen not responsive."
Pros: "Crew was helpful, food was good"
Cons: "Seating could have been better"
Pros: "I just loved the friendliness of the crew. Way to go Lufthansa"
Cons: "Not sure about the seats but they could use some cushion."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Weird plane noises (typical of older Airbus planes)"
Pros: "Good service."
Pros: "Nice entertainment selection"
Cons: "Too many snacks, food was low quality, flight was delayed with no reason given,"
Pros: "Transfer route through Frankfurt Airport was tight but not as tight as outbound. Lovely crew."
Cons: "Bus to plane at departure, no room in overhead lockers as space taken up with small bags"
Cons: "The whole experience"
Cons: "I have no flight to connect to."
Pros: "Ended up flying with air canada after they switched us"
Cons: "Lufthansa switched us three times , and then when we got to the airport in toronto it was air Canada. They found our grandparents tickets but not ours. Ridicule our flight was supposed to be only 1h layover, inatead it’s 6 and we are going to miss all our next travel accommodations."
Pros: "Food, movies"
Cons: "Long flight"
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly and attentive. Airplane had good amenities. On time and smooth takeoff and landing."
Pros: "We originally paid for seats a month before and were told to move seats because the plane was full. Plane was not full. Would like refund."
Cons: "Customer service"
Cons: "My seat did not recline, the seatback was dirty, the seats were very thin, and I could feel every movement from the person behind me. There was no in-flight entertainment, no USB ports or outlets."
Cons: "Food quality on Detroit - Frankfurt could have been better. About Frankfurt airport: the security check (between gates - for going to gate for connecting flight) was in-efficient. A single agent working while multiple other agents idle nearby. Processing speed was slower than other European & US international airports."
Cons: "No space, no entertainment. Yuck!"
Pros: "My wife and I ran from our connection all the way from one end to the other and the crew could tell. They said after I stow my carry ons to corn to the back and get a drink and use the bathroom to cool down as we were just about to take off to taxi to the runway. The crew was absolutely great and the I. Flight entertainment and food was great. We just wish our luggage had made it back too. We are still waiting to see where our luggage is - if in Europe still or Dallas."
Cons: "I would say that other passengers had their kids behind us and they kept screaming and kicking our chairs. We told the woman to tell her kids to stop but all she said was “they are a child” when all they needed to do was just tell their kid to stop. Flight attendants saw and knew but I don’t know what they could do to help when they can’t help with bad parenting. I wish there was a clear way to upgrade to first class on a trip as it was difficult to find out how."
Pros: "great crew"
Pros: "The boarding process was very fast and smooth"
Cons: "The seating space is very tight, more space is needed specially for tall people."
Pros: "The planes are comfortable, the crew are always nice and polite and have smiles on there faces."
Pros: "It got me to my destination safely."
Cons: "The seats are way too close together for such a long flight. I fought off a panic attack for much of the trip. It was suffocating. I should not be able to give the person in front of me a head massage. The personal space humans should have was horribly invaded. I'm a 62 year old woman who's in good shape but even for me it was an act of gymnastics to get in and out of my seat. On my flight to Europe on the 13th with your airline our section of the plane did not have working monitors so it was like watching paint dry for 11 hours. So boring!"
Pros: "Very organized"
Pros: "Was no flight"
Pros: "First time flying Lufthansa and I had a comfortable and enjoyable experience. The food was quite good and the selection and quality of entertainment was excellent. Best of all, there was plenty of legroom for a long international flight!"
Cons: "Their silly 8 kg weight limit for carry on baggage was a surprise and really not consistently enforced. Couldn't go through the one pass customs line adding more than an hour to that part of my trip. Crew couldn't answer questions about dairy in the food."
Cons: "Unfriendly crew"
Pros: "no problems"
Cons: "everything worked"
Pros: "Convenient schedule, excellent service, good food, all-around positive experience."
Pros: "It was on time :)"
Cons: "I booked wheelchair at Oslo airport, but my father did not get it at Frankfurt."
Cons: "The boarding process takes too long as people try to take too many things"
Cons: "Frankfurt airport chaos Lyon customs downstairs in arrivals checkin upstairs so they can't view your items if you are claiming tax back. Clever French move. Obviously happens a lot"
Cons: "the seat. not suitable for a business category"
Pros: "The coach seats were much more comfortable than Air Canada's. The flight was without incident. Staff were great! Accommodating, friendly and efficient! Incredible choices of movies, news, etc controlled by individual passenger."
Pros: "Confort and Service"
Cons: "The plane was extremely small and uncomfortable. There were only two lavoratories for 60+ people, the other two being reserved only for the 10+ people in first class. As a result, throughout the whole flight there was a long waiting line in the plane's aisle, causing the crew to complain angrily in German, thinking we wouldn't understand what they're saying, because they couldn't go through easily."
Cons: "A large airport with gates very far apart...connecting flights booked too closely together! I got to gate for next Lufthansa flight and was denied access"
Pros: "Staff , food , wine"
Cons: "Sat too close to the toilets , bad wafting smells. Only 1 earphone on my head set worked, unless I jiggled the plug. The plug did not fit neatly into the jack ."
Pros: "J Lufthansa , this was my first flight with your airline and `i am glad to say that it was an excellent experience.\The crew was superb and the comfort of both the regular coach and coach comfort was excellent. `I would highly recommend you and will return as often as possible."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "changing seat assignment"
"This flight was fine."
"Service missing, good horrible and small portions."
Pros: "The crew were amazing, kind and attentive. My seat 30H had the ultimate leg room ( I am 6' 4") so it was fantastic for me. The food was quite tasty. Really enjoyed the humorous BA video for the safety"
Pros: "Flight overall was unremarkable. Aircraft was almost twenty years old and looked it."
Cons: "Boarding via a bus was painful and inefficient. BA is selling more flights than it can accommodate at Terminal 5. Because plane was so old, the screens for the entertainment are laughably small and faded. Seats themselves are tired, with wobbly and dirty tray tables, and seatbacks that don't recline properly. Seat power is the outdated Empower standard, which doesn't work without a special adapter which virtually nobody has."
Cons: "Hotel was rubbish"
Pros: "Really nice crew and quite good food"
Cons: "BA business cabin "suite" concept makes the whole thing feel cramped and narrow, not to mention very inconvenient to move through with luggage (or at all). A serious miss from the BA interior designer."
Cons: "Didn't make it to this flight due to problems described in aforementioned flight (madrid to London). Was stranded in London overnight."
Pros: "Pilot communication"
Cons: "Free snacks & drinks"
Pros: "Efficient boarding and left early! Hold luggage arrived really quickly on conveyor belt."
Cons: "Nothing on this occasion."
Pros: "amazing crew"
Cons: "nothing it was perfect"
Cons: "Provide snacks"
Pros: "The fact that it got me there"
Pros: "Boarding staff & crew were fine"
Cons: "The seats were the most uncomfortable I have ever travelled in - this plane definitely has the worst seat width, leg & reclining space that I have seen. I have been in long-range (16 hours) flights that were more comfortable than this. If anything fell on the floor, I couldn't retrieve, I couldn't sleep at all & had contorted joints & a body ache when we landed. To design such tiny seats is truly inhumane."
Pros: "The movie selection."
Cons: "2 hours stuck on the plane before leaving from London to Columbus, in flight entertainment had to be restarted twice on same flight. I missed my connection to Madrid from Chicago because the airline lost the plane that was already at Chicago. My luggage arrived in Lyon 3 days late and I was never given any information on reimbursement for the clothes and toiletries I had to buy."
Pros: "More room than usually, almost comfortable"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable for a 6'1" , 216 lb person."
Cons: "Used to be good when you got food and drink"
Pros: "The crew on this flight were awesome!! They were friendly, warm, and very accommodating throughout the flight. Legroom was decent and overall flight was comfortable."
Cons: "There could have been more options with the food. Because we are vegetarians we were stuck with pasta and pizza-related food for the 11 hour flight. Quality of food was good however."
Pros: "Those beautiful British accents (ok English spoken properly)"
Pros: "The crew was outstanding."
Cons: "Too much of time at security check in London. We almost missed our flight"
Pros: "Food and entertainment are not applicable for this flight as it is too short to need this anyway"
Pros: "Flight on time, great crew and generally good service"
Cons: "plane interior was a little "tired""
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Old aircraft, mediocre entertainment display, food was sub par compared to previous flights"
Pros: "The communication of information for the flight by the flight attendants before boarding. Our flight was delayed by 1hour because of bad weather condition in London and the cruise communicated very well about it."
Cons: "I wish there was some entertainment available on this type of short flight."
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth and the crew was amazing. Not only the pilot kept us informed but also the crew was outstanding, very helpful and hardworking."
Cons: "The entertainment system failed as soon as we departed. They reset it for the entire plane but it didn't work for some passengers. Fortunately, mine worked well but I would not have survived such a long flight without the entertainment offered, so I can only imagine how painful it was for those affected. I know this, in hindsight, is a silly problem, but when flying it's important to have options, especially for an 11-hour flight. The crew handled it fantastically, by the way."
Pros: "Food and staff service was amazing"
Pros: "Short flight; no problems."
Pros: "Very helpful crew, smooth flight, choice of small meal - great"
Cons: "No entertainment but it is a short flight"
Pros: "On time boarding and enterteiment"
Cons: "Need to buy drink. (Water)"
Pros: "The crew was great. My meal was good too!"
Cons: "the older plane did not have personal air vents and it was hotter then I would have liked. Also being in the last row of a section allows us not recline as much while the people in front could recline more, which made for a cramp feeling during the flight."
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived on time The open skies lounge in Orly The meat and cheese platter was pretty good"
Cons: "The club sections have three seats with the middle seat blocked so it is like you are in coach nothing special at all. Easy jet with paying for up front seats is better value."
Pros: "We Arrived safely. The captain explained the situations well."
Cons: "We left late and arrived late. They ran out of one of the menu items."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The boarding crew from Edinburgh did not allow me to bring my carry on despite it being very light and within size restriction. They said this was because the plane was already full with others' luggage and could not handle my bag for safety. Had to shove my things in a Tesco carrier bag and in my daughters small backpack on wheels. The backpack broke later as it was not made to carry more than a few books. And to top it off, the suitcase I was made to check never made it on my connecting flight to Chicago. I am still waiting for it to be delivered 36 hours later. This suitcase is virtually empty. Well, it's actually carrying a pair of sunglasses and my phone charger. totally inconvenienced and the crew saved the plane from being dangerously overloaded by an empty suitcase. Absolute nonsense."
Cons: "The check in process from Prague to London to Dallas was inefficient. Too few agents, minimal direction from the representative guiding the line. Also, there were no food/beverage option unless you paid for them! No coffee etc on a 650a flight unless it was purchased. Ridiculous"
Cons: "Good friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Bags took forever to arrive. After a long flight and jet lag the last thing you need is to stand around waiting for your bags. This seems to be a problem with this particular airport (ABIA)"
Cons: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic."
Pros: "Nice plane and good food, very nice flight!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to a sick passenger, but while that was going on, the crew was also scrambling to assign a woman a new seat as a religious man did not want to sit in the same row as a woman (the 3 seat row would've put the woman 2 seats away from the man with the complaint). This is an unfair and misogynistic policy."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and took forever to get me on a new flight. On thw way back British airways messed up my return flight completly inconviencing us and created a very stressful situation. Lost over $400 becuase of delayed flight and I will be contacting BA in terms of compensation for not only my lost money but time."
Cons: "I HAVE FLOWN OFTEN ON OTHER AIRLINES & IT WAS THE FIRST TIME TO FIND OUT THAT BRITISH AIRWAYS ONLY ALLOWED ONE FREE CHECKED BAG AND I HAD TO PAY $200 WHEN I ARRIVED AT THE AIRPORT, $100 FOR THE 2ND BAG & $100 BECAUSE IT EXCEEDED 51 LBS"
Pros: "we landed"
Cons: "flight had a two hours delay flight attendants were rude and obnoxious will never fly on british airways ever again they shouldnt be allowed to drive people let alone fly them london is just fog and ugly faces british airways' customer service is the equivalent of wisdom teeth: they exist but no one seems to know why they should delete their airline altogether"
Pros: "Lots of info, arrived 10mins early"
Cons: "I arrived about 45 mins before the departure time and they refused to let my 85 year old sick dad in a wheel chair board. They did not assist him in rebooking and we had to sleep in the airport to catch an Easy jet in the morning as all hotels were fully booked. This is about the worst service I have ever encountered and I would like a full refund Thanks Charles"
Pros: "Staff was cheerful"
Pros: "safety was excellent"
Cons: "Would have preferred fruit on plane or a nice salad. Landing was extremely painful to my ears. Too much cabin pressure."
Cons: "Terrible sensitivity on entertainment touch screens"
Cons: "food was mediocre. cannot reflect this in your ratings somehow everything else was fine"
