Pros: "amazing and the airport is awesome"
Cons: "good"

Pros: "Seats comfortable. Entertainment was extensive. Food was good!"
Cons: "Landing was rough!"
Pros: "I like the crew."
Cons: "All good."
Pros: "No one gave me food. I pressed the button to request services, and had to wait for two hours until someone finally came and get me a drink (the flight was about 3 hours long). This was the worst flight experience that I ever had. Very bad."
Pros: "The service was great and the entertainment tv worked better than the first plane."
Cons: "We waited a lot in the bus that took us to the plane without moving. It would have been better if we stayed in the waiting area until the bus and the route was cleared to take us to the plane."
Pros: "Efficient and very friendly cabin staff. Captain and team kept us informed of flight progression at reasonable intervals."
Cons: "Some slight delay in clearing up some catering equipment."
Pros: "The flight was very amply crewed, with attentive and friendly staff. Everthing runs quite efficiently."
Cons: "Boarding took very long and seating was very weird. A lot of people including me were moved around multiple times due to seating problems. Apparently there was no sync between the staff itself and everyone was trying to solve this problem in their own way. However the good part was that they were at least trying to solve the problem! Flight was delayed by about 30 mins due to this chaos."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "N/a"
Cons: "Older plane less entertainment options"
Cons: "Domodedovo sucks in all aspects. Baggage, taxi pick up, total bs"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, nice crew, good entertainment selection"
Cons: "The boarding process by bus transfer in Dubai was quite long and convoluted. The food options were limited and overall low quality"
Cons: "poor service"
Cons: "Did not like the fact that I was not able to upgrade"
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: "Flying with Emirates is always great."
Pros: "Service from staff"
Cons: "Disembarking for passengers needing wheelchair was prolonged and cumbersome; As a result,my one suitcase was lost by another passenger picking up my bag and I ended up spending 3 extra hours at the airport completing formalities!"
Pros: "Entertainment offer was great. Live channels, talks, movies, etc..."
Cons: "The service... it was almost a 7 hours flight, the crew brings you your food and that's it. I needed to ask more than three times to get water, again and again, I can't understand this behaviour at all. They treat you extremely bad unless you fly business with them. I felt uncomfortable and didn't like this behaviour at all."
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Why are Emirates business Class seats on 777 so weirdly configured - you have to be a stick insect to squeeze out of bulkhead row 8 window seats because of hideous mock walnut trunk slung between the seats to house aisle TV screen."
Pros: "Service and crew were excellent!"
Cons: "Movie selection somewhat limited"
Pros: "Food and entertainment. Didn't crash."
Cons: "There is no leg room, and the seats are so small that everyone ends up leaning on each other. Better pray that you neighbor doesn't show up. Ever tried to eat while in such close proximity to another human? Totally not recommended, yet it's a requirement on these flights. I was not able to eat at the same time as my neighbors. I let them eat first, then ate my food."
Pros: "I travel with a lot of airlines but this time Traveling with Emirates airline is completely different such as accommodation transportation everything awesome."
Cons: "I was scheduled to leave Accra yesterday at 5:50pm. The flight was unexpectedly cancelled and the stranded passengers like myself were corralled to a nearby hotel. The flight has since been rescheduled several times today and settled to finally leave at midnight this evening. I missed my connection but it has also been rescheduled, but I doubt I will make it. Emirates has left me stranded. It's ridiculous how they failed to keep us accurately informed."
Pros: "It felt like home. =)"
Cons: "it felt too much like home. ;)"
Cons: "It was delayed for 8 hours!!!"
Pros: "Crew were lovely very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Ground staff was quite rude refused to let us access the lift so we could board from the upper deck even though we were business class. She insisted that I walk round and board from where she was because she didn't want to walk a few steps and swipe her card for us to access the lift."
Pros: "ICE entertainment system was of high quality."
Cons: "First, the seats were very small and uncomfortable. I had trouble sleeping, and, the seat was stuck (couldn't move back). And second, the food tasted horrendous. I have been on many flights, and this was perhaps the worst meal I've ever had. The coffee was bitter enough to make me gag (even after I added cream), and the chicken was flavorless. The boarding process was a mess. It was hectic and unorganized. The flight was delayed an hour, and the crew failed to provide an adequate rationale as to why. Speaking of the crew, they weren't helpful. At one point, I had asked to use the restroom, and I couldn't get in. Again the crew provided no rationale as to why. Then, a few HOURS later, a lady approached me and said I could go "very quickly". This was my first time flying with Emirates and I don't think I'll be flying with them again."
Pros: "The food Staff is superb My niece enjoyed the most. The crew clicked photos with her and made her moments memorable."
Pros: "Crew onboard - do great on a very busy route Punctuality- on time departure & arrivals"
Cons: "- older planes - no amenities like pillows, blankets , kits - food is geared towards spicy, with no options for anyone who prefers a lighter continental option. - touchscreen did not work. Constantly having to tap hard is probably annoying to the person in front, also Worry that the TV heating up is probably not great for the head resting on the seat"
Pros: "The entertainment unit worked all good. The food was great."
Cons: "Flight got delayed. I can't say crews weren't kind but I was on another airline with much much kinder crews."
Pros: "Food was decent"
Cons: "The movies are censored... there is no point in offering R rated films if you can't watch them as the director intended."
Pros: "We love Emarites Airlines Service"
Cons: "When boardiing at Dubai entry used one gate with steps this was a minor inconvenience wth the friendly helpful assistance of the flight attendants."
Pros: "Everything was excellent. Emirates is a quality airway."
Pros: "USB chargers at every seat Plenty of entertainment options and new movie releases Good food Tidy bathroom Extremely pleasant air hosts and hostesses"
Cons: "Being in Economy Class. The difference between Economy and Business Class is worlds apart"
Pros: "The food was much better than on the Board of BKK-Dubai, as well the kindness of the crew."
Pros: "Staff is very attentive and always around. I am not a fan of instant coffee, but I got a cup of coffee when I asked for one outside of "meal times". The leg room is good, though I could still use a little extra."
Cons: "I wish the crew asked all passengers to reset their seat upright when food is served. I am quite tall and having the person in front of me recline is uncomfortable at all times, but while eating, there just isn't very much elbow room. Also the temperature in the cabin is really too cold. The entertainment system uses a two-prong plug for the headset, which requires you to bring an adapter if you want to use your own noise-blocking headset or headphones."
Pros: "Entertainment center was great many series."
Cons: "Nothing."
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 Captain spoke to us a few times and the crew were absolutely amazing. Best flight Ive ever been on."
Pros: "After what happened on Wednesday August 3rd I expected there to be some craziness but not like this. I was checked in by an employee who just started that day. She tells me in a faint voice "sir you may not make this flight". After that she tells me to check back 1 hour before the flight leaves. So I do, another teller states you made the flight please go to security. I have 45 minutes before the flight is schedule to leave at 3pm. I rush with my wife from one part of DXB to the other. Somehow make it there, but then have to wait for over 2 hours because of a connecting flight being delayed, unbelievable. Then when we land and I try to claim my bag, the bags are lost. Not just mine quite a few passengers. I go to baggage claim and the teller is screaming at me and other passangers "shut up, I don't care about your bag". This is the most disrespectful moment of the trip, never have I experienced a customer service provider yell at me like this. This experience is a direct reflection of emirates lack of management in their hiring process, as well as their ability to train their staff in high stress environments. Will I fly emirates again probably not, paying a premium for below average service is not worth it. The cabin crew were very thoughtful and respectful and made the trip bareable, their ground crew is anot her story."
Cons: "Lack of management with staff, being unable to control a high stress level situation, additionally the lack of communication regarding the progress of my flight. Delays and set backs happen but communication would help me plan and be prepared accordingly."
Pros: "The variety of movies available on ICE"
Cons: "I hated the food. Emirates assumed everyone in Nigeria eats Eba which is absolutely wrong. The hostesses were not friendly as well."
Cons: "So much delayed due to plane problem.. 8 hours total delay..."
Pros: "The media system was great. I enjoyed the food and the crew was very nice."
Pros: "I have heard my friends complain about the baggage check in process for the middle eastern flights was worst..but emirates were actually very helpful with the procees."
Pros: "AVML quality for BGW - DXB leg was excellent"
Cons: "the hollywood movie selection was quite limited. The seats had very hard and protruding lower back rests which could not be adjusted. The boarding was hardly done according to the seating zones."
Pros: "Our company has used emirates in the past ( business class) ..this flight was a last minute decision so was booked in economy. We had seats in row 52 BC - a bulkhead outside the mid galley ....it was an incredible experience to watch the crew start eating from containers, peeling apples and making salads from a plastic bag before the passengers were served. The flight attendants when not eating were taking selfies ...so much for the "emirates experience. The curtain was drawn once for about 15 minutes between our seats and tghe galley area. I was so amazed at the lack of professionalism and the amount of food consumed by the attendants I took photos of the constantly stuffing food in their moths and then trying to speak to passengers."
Cons: "See above comments."
Pros: "I liked the friendly service"
Cons: "Not enough room for comfort especially on a long flight"
Pros: "all good"
Cons: "Reckless and inconsiderate airline. The only carrier refusing to modify travel due to Covid-19 pandemic"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The aircraft looked new. However the seat widths seemed small. Awkward recline as well. The seats were just not comfortable."
Pros: "Great service in 1st class"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The kindness of all people working on Swiss was very special"
Cons: "The food was not very special, but the chocolates were awesome"

Pros: "Crew Was very friendly , smiley, and welcoming."
Cons: "Movie selection could have been better, but was ok."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, food was very good."
Cons: "It was so hot on the (delayed) flight"
Pros: "The service was friendly and efficient. My seat was comfortable."
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn't working properly. It was restarted for me twice, but still didn't work."
Pros: "Great airline overall!"
Cons: "No leg room due to the airplane box under the seat in front of me. Very difficult to straighten legs out, difficult to get comfortable."
Pros: "Missed this flight because the first one was late"
Cons: "Seats are very cramped"
Pros: "Everything! The cleanest aircraft I have ever been on, excellent crew, amazing breakfast!"
Cons: "Nothing, everything was superb"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "That it wasn’t a flight to denver"
Pros: "There were good entertainment options though I didn’t use them"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 2.5 hours, during which we had boarded but were told we could not leave our seats even for the bathroom. We were offered a cup of water once during this delay which is inexcusable. (We were also woken up to serve dinner at 1am so that was incredibly inconvenient for an overnight flight) On top of that, I, as well as many others missed our connecting flight. Personally I missed my connection by 20 minutes, which seems a reasonable amount of time to hold a connecting flight with so many people from our flight on that next one. In missing by only 20 minutes, we have lost an entire day of our trip and are spending 9! hours in the airport today. There was no communication between flights clearly. Despite there being an earlier flight we could’ve been placed on after missing our connection - we did not get booked on this flight. I asked why and they just randomly placed people on random flights with no regard for when we showed at the desk. In this scenario, a first come first serve would have alleviated an absolutely awful experience. I will never fly Swiss Air again and will urge people I know to not fly this airline. The experience was extremely frustrating, the best response from an employee was “that’s all I can do for you” and I wish it on no one."
Pros: "Loved the warm and very delicious quiche, thank you!"
Pros: "Nice self boarding"
Cons: "No big screen to communicate priority to boarding since I am deaf."
Pros: "Class staff"
Cons: "Bit of a delay"
Pros: "good flight didn’t have any problems"
Pros: "3"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Quick trip :-)"
Cons: "45 minute delay, but those are pretty understandable and unavoidable."
Cons: "We (parents) were business class, but our two kids in coach, yet Swiss doesn’t allow “guests” in the lounge. Hmmm. What a bunch of BS."
Cons: "I wasn't able to select seat before boarding"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Service was perfect Food was incredible Movies and entertainment high level"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The service was not great which surprised me for swiss. The flight attendant was absolutely not into work. The seats supposed to work.. wasn’t .. we had to switch the seats with no help and with the lights off. Awful .. of course they didn’t noticed so they didn’t woke me up for the breakfast. (And I’ve been asking for). Maybe was bad luck but that’s really ridiculous. During the flight they didn’t brought water or something we had to call them."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew was excellent. They were very efficient and went about their duties without disturbing the passengers."
Cons: "Budapest airport crew is very slow. It took them 45 min to get the baggages out ."
Pros: "I am a frequent flyer with swiss airline. Amazing crew, boarding, taking off and landing is on time if not a little earlier. However, I was quite disappointed with the enertainment package and food."
Cons: "I am a frequent flyer with swiss airline. Amazing crew, boarding, taking off and landing is on time if not a little earlier. However, I was quite disappointed with the enertainment package and food."
Pros: "Very friendly and excellent service. It was my first experience flying with Swiss. Will definitely fly with them again. Brest airline I've taken to Europe. This airline should be called tthe friendly skies of Europe. They are outstanding."
Cons: "The trip coming back to Chicago was a bit longer than going. The excellent service tgay eas provided by the crew made up for tgay."
Pros: "Swiss being swiss, great service and food was quite nice."
Cons: "Airplane felt old, entertainment system is small and outdated."
Cons: "The flight was 1:20 hours delay so it arrived at midnight to Vienna. Even they refused to accept all the cabin bags on board. Very disspointed with Swiss. I’m flying twice time a week and I never experience so frustating experience like Swiss Air"
Pros: "Kind crew and a short flight"
Cons: "Snack choices too limited, but it was great that they even had them."
Pros: "I liked everything except my luggage"
Cons: "I did not like the way Beatice of Swiss Air in Zurich completely rushed me at the gate without trying to talk to Mr. Mueller at checkin 1. I told her that He had starte an ardious process in recovering my luggage. She visibly tried to rush me through the process and told me there was othing that could be done. It felt really ugly to be lied to right to my face, when she diditn try to connect with someone from her own staff who had tried alot of heard to work to help me rectify the luggage question. For all we know, my luggage was in Zuruch, and her actions impeded the luggage from getting onto my plane."
Pros: "Most things were great"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and almost missed my second flight"
Pros: "A+."
Pros: "Fast and efficient transport option to Berlin"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Fine"
Cons: "Newark airport is awful. Can't get food, can't get coffee, can't get a newspaper. I would try to avoid it."
Cons: "Expired cheese. Loudest plane I have ever been on."
Pros: "Your crew is amazing."
Pros: "The seat, the airport, the service"
Cons: "The tight connection"
Cons: "At the check-in gate there was pandemonium. It was not clear how to proceed. The lines were long and disorderly. Since I had passed through passport control, I didn't think I would need to go through again just before boarding. I was in line, ready to have my boarding pass scanned when I was told I needed to have my passport checked! I had to step out of line, go back and get my passport checked, then go back in line to board! I could not get an assigned seat until I got to Zurich. I needed an aisle seat (I had a bladder infection and would need to use the toilet often). It was left up to me to negotiate with my neighbor to switch seats--- the crew would not help at all. I was cramped in my seat. The man in front of me put his chair too far back; I was difficult to work on my laptop with so little room between me and the table. The snack was horrible---uncooked, tasteless calzone and ice cream."
Pros: "smooth, professional, comfortable"
Pros: "I have a moderate fear of flying and our plane experienced turbulence while passing through some clouds. I asked the flight attendant if everything was okay, and he smiled and explained that there was some rain on the way to Switzerland. I really appreciate when the crew takes the time to explain what is going on. Knowing what to expect helps me deal with my fear. Because of the flight attendant's willingness to explain the details of our flight, I felt more comfortable during the remainder of the trip."
Cons: "Sandwiches Delay"
Pros: "Crew was really nice, comfortable seat, great experience"
Cons: "I liked everything"
Cons: "I wasn't on it so I wouldn't know."
Pros: "Short flight was fine."
Cons: "Airlines waste a lot of time and money preparing food that is mediocre at best. Just offering simple orange juice , tea coffee and a muffin to keep people going would be better as it's such a short flight."
Pros: "Love qantas airways! Such a great and safe airline."
Pros: "Crew was OK, slow to respond to requests"
Cons: "The whole check in process was a joke, had a line up of 15 people and one agent"
Pros: "Everything, I was upgraded to the upper cabin, crews are wonderfully friendly and warm."
Cons: "First aid kit, in case of sudden nose bleed caused by dry air. Other than that, perfect!"
Pros: "Crew were helpful and very nice. However, as first experience flying internationally with Qantas wasn’t positive.. very proud to be Australian but their mechanical faults doesn’t help in customer loyalty."
Cons: "Flight delayed due to mechanical faults for 4 hours. $15 meal voucher is not sufficient to cover the cost of proper meal. Airlines if allocating seats automatically should not put a female in between two males, not a very nice experience. No option to amend seat."
Pros: "First rate crew, friendly and professional through the long flight. The food was excellent and the crew offered snacks and drinks between meals. I paid the extra to sit in a section upstairs that I was able to get up and move around frequently."
Cons: "It’s a long flight but that can’t be helped. Economy seats are really cramped and so I paid $190 for more leg room on the way back. Would highly recommend. I wouldn’t sit right next to the bathroom again. (Check seat guru first) Also wasn’t able to check in with my mobile phone. Had to go through the line."
Pros: "Good seat, great service. Typical quality QANTAS flight - perfect"
Cons: "Maybe the seat could have been more comfortable."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, food delicious, seats comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Terrible experiences overall and food is very bad."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable & I loved the flexible head rest. The food was good. The flight attendant were friendly & attentive. It was my first time flying Qantas & it is my new favorite airline!"
Pros: "Comfortable flight."
Cons: "Food and entertainment options."
Pros: "Crew was very good"
Cons: "Not enough leg room for a 6’2” tall person."
Pros: "Food was surprisingly good and generous. Also nice to have snacks and small soft drinks available in the back at any time. The entertainment system had a good collection of movies."
Cons: "Seats should have a USB port for charging devices. Podcast selection was poor on the entertainment system and usually only had one or two episodes. Because podcasts are often free (or can be licensed cheaply) and require little storage, system should have last 20 episodes of the best 100 podcasts."
Pros: "Very smooth, on time boarding. Food quality"
Cons: "The food is served on a tiny tray that only has room for the hot dish. Other items are piled on top. Recipe for items being dropped, getting crumbs everywhere and generally less comfortable eating experirnce. And stop using plastic cutlery!"
Pros: "The service and flight as total."
Cons: "No issues."
Pros: "Professional service.."
Cons: "Non.."
Pros: "The seats are comfortable and the service is first rate. Best airline out of Virgin Australia, Air New Zealand, and Qantas based on my 3 trips to New Zealand"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "One of the stewardesses perfume was quite overwhelming."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and my itinerary was re-booked and going thru Melbourne to Perth. I lost half day of my life wasted in the Airport. The worst part of this change was flying on an old 737 thru Melbourne without the entertainment access for this long flight."
Pros: "Quality of interior"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Very nice and speedy check in. Boarding ok. Food good but no fruit."
Cons: "slow entertainment system. Some shows and maps unavailable"
Cons: "The flight was canceled, after 5 hours of waiting for updates. So we are still stuck in Sydney."
Pros: "More legroom, bathrooms appeared to get serviced so they were not a mess, plenty of food and drinks available throughout the flight. Being able to order the meal ahead was a wonderful way to guarantee your choice. Well done!"
Pros: "Really appreciate the food and entertainment Qantas provides on these mid-haul flights"
Pros: "Customer service...very helpful and accommodating. Good food. Easy transfer from domestic to international. On one of our flights, a 39 minute one, they served a substantial snack (yogurt, breakfast biscuits, oj) and tea, coffee, etc. Amazing in that amount of time!"
Cons: "I tried to think of something but I couldn’t."
Pros: "Kayak gave me aisle seat in very last row of plane next to bathroom"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable in aisle of very last row next to airport. Had to ask to be moved. Food was marginal. Small portions."
Pros: "The movies would not play until two hours outside of LA."
Pros: "Crew were pleasant and engaging"
Cons: "Boarding was slow"
Pros: "The crew were professional and looks the part, food was warm and tasty and they made regular checks to see if we needed water or food."
Cons: "Well there were 3 crying babies for a good portion of the flight which is no fault of the airline or parents it's just something that wasn't as desirable."
Cons: "My seat got moved when I had pre-selected them. The power outlet between the seats didn't work so I couldn't use my CPAP. The earphones/jack would only have sound in 1 ear."
Pros: "They made it tolerable, and made us feel comfrotable on this 13.5 hr flight."
Cons: "Noisy conversations of people waiting to use the toilet."
Pros: "love the selection of food and snacks"
Cons: "staff was not at helpful and friendly as i remembered. Seem a little stress and did not want to be there."
Pros: "Overall experience was good.Food quality and snack was good."
Cons: "Would like to have more choice in Bollywood movies., and food."
Pros: "Nothing to speak of that I liked"
Cons: "Short flight, no food to speak of, no entertainment"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Clean and tidy. Fast and reliable. Grand cup of tea too. Would recommend and would fly again. Different Safety demo got my attention."
Pros: "The crew were fantastic! Attentive, humorous, efficient and very professional."
Cons: "The plane is well outdated. Cramped seats for a 14 hour flight. Minuscule TV screens. The 747 is a health hazard for flights over 6 hours. Bring on a Dreamliner or an A383 for that flight - PLEASE!!!"
Pros: "Qantas Launge"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful and we were provided with breakfast even on this shorter flight."
Cons: "They didn't have as big of a selection of movies on their smaller plane."
Pros: "Staff were super accommodating and friendly. Best pillow I've had on a flight. Blankets were nice as well."
Cons: "Seats didn't accommodate my broad shoulders well. Seats seemed tighter than ones I've flow long distance on before ie. Iceland Air, New Zealand Air, and Emirates. Head phone jack is inside the seat arm rest which made it awkward when adjusting. No standard head phone jack but a converter is provided."
Pros: "Always organised"
Pros: "movie selection"
Cons: "Crew is not friendly or helpful Many times you couldn't get them. Serving process is very poor due to the process."
Pros: "Great service, great food"
Pros: "Friendly crew members. Departure time & arrival times were very accurate. Luggage was handled properly."
Cons: "Taste & selection for vegetarian meals were very poor"
Pros: "First time I flew Qantas and it was a flight from Melb- Dubai and then Dubai - London. I sat in row 62 and the food three times the food selection had run out the fruits and beef curry. I wasn't able to check in online which was quite annoying. The crew from Melb-Dubai were fantastic. So friendly and talkative and I think one was called Jordan."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "The complete lack of space between seats Old style plane Very average new movie selection"
Pros: "Good crew on the ground and in the air."
Cons: "The food was the worst long haul food I've ever had - a hot sandwich in a box. Really? For a 12 hour flight?! Entertainment was basic - not bad, but minimal. Seat recline was basic/minimal. If you're a budget flyer, pick a different airline. If you're a premium flyer, Quantas is fine."
Pros: "I liked that they accommodated my dietary restrictions"
Cons: "I didn't like the seating. It was really cramped"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable and they serve free meals! Entertainment system is excellent when it works though the supplied headphones are not the best."
Cons: "Flight was little late because of a small delay."
Cons: "Sold as Qantas. In fact it is Jetstar. No food, no drinks, no entertainment. Qantas personal unfriendly when we went to Qantas desk to check in for, what we thought was a Qantas flight."
Pros: "On time , efficient service"
Cons: "Crowded"
Pros: "The crew was excellent. However the business class seats were terrible. You had to step over a sleeping customer to get out of the seat. There was no place to put anything other than a distant little drawer under the TV. The food choices were the same old chicken and pasta."
Cons: "Food selection"
Pros: "Crew was nice. No water or basic beverage service"
Cons: "Water or basic beverage service"
Cons: "Reduced quality in Cuisine, and problem exacerbated by industrial strike by BA Catering Services company on the day in question. I didn't get value for what I payed for."
Cons: "I missed my international connection because flight was three hours late."
Cons: "Our flight from Denver to London was canceled at the last minute last night. The information from your email and the number given from you notifying me of the cancellation only gave British Airway to contact for redress. It took over an hour on the phone to get another flight which was 2 days later with now 2 days less of our vacation. Not to mention the loss of 2 hotel room payments. Kayak was of no help in this matter. Plus our flight reservation prohibited us from getting our flight on another flight the next day. If I had known that I never would have used Kayak. I am extremely unhappy with how this was handled. I expect to be reimbursed for our lost Hotel room costs and the costs associated with lost tours from you. Please contact me with how you will go about doing this."
Cons: "This is the second time your plans have been late! You were late leaving from Venice to London Heathrow on August 1 which I barely made the flight to Glasgow and then coming back your flight is late leaving Edinburgh to Heathrow And my luggage doesn't make it again! You don't even serve water on the airplane which is ridiculous! Your flight crew were nice but you really need to be on time or not schedule flights with such short layover times! And I hope no one takes anything out of my suitcase! And I'm sure nothing will be done so why do you even do a survey?"
Pros: "Spacious not over crowded smooth flight British Airways was great! Very attentive flight attendants."
Cons: "Chicago O'Hare was a mess as far as making connections. There was no signage and the airport attendants did not offer any assistance."
Cons: "It was a two hour flight, we did not get the opportunity to buy a drink and food until an hour and forty minutes into the flight. This is not acceptable."
Pros: "The crew did their best to minimize delay"
Cons: "Flight delayed, arrival very late night. No snacks, drinks , only to purchase. Like a low cost airline"
Cons: "No free water on the flight. I was not able to use my USA credit card. Water is essential during flights!!!! I got sick on the pain from headaches!!!!!! Water should be a basic, free thing to served on a plain."
Cons: "there's no screen. hence there's no chance of entertainment. a cup of water or just a juice box should be free/standard."
Cons: "On a flight to Budapest, budapest airport had issues that forced us to land in Austria. 5 hours later we’ve been completely abandoned in an empty airport while all the other planes that landed paid for their customers transport. It’s 4am, we have not been given food water or a plan as to how we will get to our destination. The plane crew basically told us we are on our own and left. This is straight up cruel, unjust and completely unacceptable considering we paid more than 2000 dollars for these flights"
Pros: "They arrived a few minutes earlier than expected."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "carry-on not allowed on board"
Pros: "Good leg room, good service from staff and left early"
Cons: "Did not have food so can't comment but tea was cold, however cabin crew more than happy to change it. no other negatives to think of"
Pros: "Good crew and efficient service."
Cons: "Not the most comfortable business class seats. Had a hard time getting any sleep."
Pros: "The crew were amazing, friendly, attentive and quick at everything they did"
Cons: "The entertainment screens were a little old and battered - scratched and all, which meant a reduced viewing experience"
Pros: "I like the flight left on time"
Cons: "There were no self check in kiosk, only 3 people working to serve 50 took over and hour"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "I understand that airlines want to cut back where ever they can, but I have a hard time believing that you cannot swing a bottle of water and a sandwich. Oh BTW beware of their new “security” regulations. So I had a bottle of perfume in my carry on, only about a quarter maybe a third left in a 100 ml bottle. Guess what, it is not the amount of liquid you have in it, it is the amount the bottle can hold that matters. Needless to say they confiscated it."
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarded well"
Cons: "This was a codeshare with Iberia and the seats were incredibly close with barely room to fit a small person, much less the 6’+ person who was next to me and had to put his legs over onto my side. Had a hard time getting my bag down between the seats to put under the seat in front of me. And everything was a cost, even water. Note to self, carry water or a drink on the plane if you think you will want one."
Cons: "Only card why?? No free food??"
Cons: "You had to pay for everything and I do mean everything. Even a glass of water. There were no glasses unless you paid for a bottle. If I have a choice I won’t be flying British Airways again."
Pros: "I felt very safe on the plane because security monitoring in London was extremely efficient."
Cons: "Portion of food for dinner inadequate. Offered chicken and pasta but ran out of pasta. The man next to me wanted pasta but got chicken. The woman in front of me however got pasta even though she was told there was no pasta. She insisted she could not eat chicken. The flight attendant able to come up with pasta however. Most of the entrainment screen around me on the flight not working. Some however came on later in the flight."
Pros: "They need to improve confort and food choices! Overall: very good!"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Even coffee was not complimentary"
Cons: "Corralling people into shopping area by not disclosing gate assignment. Then corralling people into a boarding area where there is no access to bathroom facilities. Then boarding without any order except for some privileged passengers (first class, club members). Finally,not serving any soft drink or little snacks unless you pay for some overpriced stuff. This is a sure way to drive passengers away from BA towards no-frills discount airlines."
Cons: "Asked for water when they were selling beverages, and was told sharply "not yet". Flight attendants did not make eye contact and never return for us or other passengers around us."
Pros: "Games at the tv."
Cons: "Food do not tase good. Very litle space in the economic flys. You make bigger plains with less spaces I was feeling like a bag of potatoes"
Pros: "Pilot was communicative about flight delay."
Cons: "The food service never made it to our row. Not even water was offered on a two hour flight."
Cons: "for the price I paid the service did not offer complimentary food or even water or soda."
Pros: "Plane was nice"
Cons: "Didn't get food order correct"
Pros: "That the flight only came in 15 minutes late."
Cons: "An old beat up plane in desperate need of renovation especially for a long haul flight. Only one nice flight attendant who tried to help. Others not interested. Terrible seat that I tried to move with no success. Did not eat anything or watch any entertainment. Very unpleasant experience. I have flown this route many times and next time I would fly Swiss through Zurich or Geneva as I have done before."
Pros: "Best airline !!"
Cons: "Always timely and flight crew is personable and helpful."
Pros: "I expected a wonderful experience with British Air but unfortunately our flight from Edinburgh was delayed , missed our connecting flight from Heathrow. We were put up in a hotel by BA and arrived st Heathrow to find our replacement BA flight was delayed because of fuel issues. Still sitting and waiting."
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "The width of the seats in economy are so narrow they don't fit my back. I am not a fat person. 6 feet 170 lbs and fit. No legroom and the tray table is not deep enough to support the food tray. Breakfast after an 8 hour flight consisted of a Kellogg's snack bar in a wrapper. I am used to Southwest Airlines which allows more than one peanut bag so I took two breakfast bars and the stewardess scolded me and said only one and made me return my extra. Not everyone in my roll even took a bar. They treat you like dirt in coach."
Cons: "I can not comment yet, it will be unfortunately several hours before I take this leg of my trip"
Pros: "This was maybe a regional carrier, the flight was a bit more mundane compared to the wide-body crossing the Atlantic, however, there was nothing to really complain about. Boarding was a bit of a madhouse, but in the end not too eventful."
Pros: "I felt like the flight attendants were extra nice on this flight! The super positive attitude alone made the long flight much more pleasant :)"
Cons: "Landing was a little rough--big, choppy dips during descent. Not as smooth as other large commercial flights I've taken."
Pros: "The seat I had was good"
Cons: "No food, no drinks. They asked me to pay even for water. After a very long trans Atlantic flight, this being a connecting flight after a long a tired 11 hours layover in London. It is an embarrassing how the airline cares (or doesn't care) who travels with them, where the people are coming from so they can understand their needs. I don't think it would had make a difference to the airline if they would acknowledge connecting passengers and eventually try to make their experience a little easier. But asking for a glass of water and not getting any is an embarrassing experience for this airline. I will never fly with British if I can."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and the captain did his best to make up for a delay"
Cons: "There was a bit of stress during boarding with people unable to find luggage space - and at least one verbal argument between passengers"
Pros: "The plane is a newer one than what they are flying across the Atlantic and the seats were decent for the length of the flight. The crew were very nice and gave us tap water to drink for free."
Cons: "They don't offer any free food or drink, not even water. The boarding process was slow and laborious as they were making people check their carryon bags as they were checking the boarding passes."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "no complimentary water and coffee and more."
Cons: "the journey map was very poor quality - old aircraft perhaps ?"
Pros: "on time, friendly staff, helpful with babies"
Cons: "less and less legroom on BA! think about tall people"
Pros: "Professionalism of staff"
Cons: "Boarding system"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled . And BA didn't manage it well for me . I am flying business . And have gold frequent flyer . And they offered cheap hotel by airport . Without even a shuttle to go to. I managed to go by myself . You have to stand on a line for an hour to get answers and another line with another 45 minutes to find solution. It's really bad ."
Pros: "Politeness, precision, correctness."
Cons: "It was a little bit hard to understand the words of the pilots because of the noise."
Cons: "I know this was economy but the seats are the tightest of any other airline. We were all practically on top of each other for a relatively long flight."
Cons: "British airways lost our luggage in between London and Thera. Tryimg to track down any answers from British airways was near impossible. Have not heard anything form the airlines in the way of an explanation or apology."
Pros: "The pilot was very great, on time, and the crew was accommodating."
Cons: "We left on a flight from London over 12 hours later."
