My carry on bag was just 1lb extra and the first person could have told me right away and I would have thrown away chocolates and brought down the weight to permissible limit.

Pros: "Non"
Cons: "Everything is unlikely You got treated by your sc you got treated by your skin"
Cons: "I understand that the cabin crew’s job focus is not to serve drinks and food to passengers. However, I would’ve expected well-mannered employees from Emirates. I was on an aisle seat, a steward bumped on my arm quite roughly and he merely continued walking. Not even a word was said."
Pros: "380's mostly comfortable serious entertainment system and well trained,efficient ,friendly staff."

Cons: "Ok"
Pros: "The service was excellent good legroom for flying economy."
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth as was finding my luggage after arriving in NYC."
Cons: "The entertainment system did not work for about an hour and they had to fix it. It took the crew a while to start troubleshooting it. A few people had to complain before they did anything. The quality of the food on Emirates has greatly decreased recently. Their wifi on flight is terribly slow and they require you to pay $1 for it."
Pros: "We started with a 45 min wait on the tarmac before takeoff. Then spent 14h listening to screaming children. Now, I know that isn't the airlines fault, but it would be nice to see where children are sitting when booking on such a long flight! Once we landed, the girl next to me got sick and when I flagged a flight attendant, she simply told me there's a barf bag in the seat pocket - there wasn't - so I had to part the crowd to get that lady to a bathroom. Then it took 45 min to get off the plane! The food was okay and there was plenty to watch (couldn't read due to screaming children). It was a really rough flight."

Pros: "This flight was pretty roomy since I had a whole row to myself."

Pros: "The staff on the flight was fine."
Cons: "When I went to transfer flight to Perth there was an agent at the security who found that I had a wallet ninja and showed him it just threw it in the trash without asking me what my options were. Had an attitude when I asked what the heck? He was totally rude and ruined my perception of the Qantas staff."

Cons: "Legroom seems to be getting less and less."

Cons: "The seating was s cramped Glad the flight was only 3 hours"

Food was not great but we we were not offered anything to drink not even water with the meal until we had finished eating. I know crew works hard but that seemed a time management problem. There is no service involved plonking down a tray. Water could be included."
Cons: "All of the above."
Cons: "Qantas food gets worse each flight."
Pros: "The service and the meals and snacks- American airlines do not provide any of those things anymore, Qantas did domestically as well as on our international flight."

Pros: "Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Leg room is tight in economy"
Pros: "The crew is always pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The business class seats are average at best. The dinner service is good but not well coordinated. The cheese platter at dessert is really anticlimactic. I look forward to international biz class meals, but I want this to be better."
Pros: "I like ice cream (TipTop icecream). It was okay and much better then meal. The dark chocolate after meal was also good."

Pros: "The crew on both legs of our flight were great and did their very best to take care of the customers even in poor circumstances."
Cons: "Our original flight from Sydney to SFO was cancelled due to mechanical issues after boarding over an hour late and then sitting in our seats on the tarmac for over 3 hours. The flight was rebooked for the next day, but on a much older and far less comfortable plane. The plane had no room of any kind, especially for a taller person, and there was no choice but to put your seat back if the person in front of you had. The inflight entertainment was also far less advanced. After having such an excellent flight to Australia I was highly disappointed by the flight home. Other than putting us in a free hotel for the night and paying for taxi fares there was no compensation which cost me a full day of work."
Cons: "They put me in a broken seat in business class for which I had to call a flight attendant every time I wanted to adjust it."

Pros: "Staff. Entertainment was okay . Flight arrived in less than 13 hours rather than posted 13hr 40min"

Cons: "Lost a bag Charged for bags Made us check in our overhead bags-No quality carrier does that."
Cons: "Late leaving and still pretending it was going to leave sooner than it did. It boarded 15 mins after the published delayed departure time. Staff wouldn't even call to find out when it would really leave. Lounge closed before the flight was called,"
Pros: "Prompt and efficient with helpful informative checkin (warned that luggage would probably need to be cleared and rechecked in Sydney). Reasonable choice of snacks (inc. crisps that were I think GF - same as in lounge)."
Cons: "BA (FF) lounge facilities at Tegel are pretty limited, but some reasonable snack choices (crisps, fruit, biscuits, ...)"
Pros: "Staff."
Cons: "Seats. Far too cramped, I am 188cm and cannot sit without being jammed up to the seat in front. This sucks when you are young worse when 60+"
Cons: "My gates changed at Sydney abruptly and some of the ones checking flights through at gate 1c were rude as the Tv screens said my flight was boarding when it wasnt."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and tried to make us as comfortable as possible in an old plane"
Cons: "The plane was clearly old. The leg room was horrible. I am 5'10" which is not super tall and my knees were jammed into the seat in front of me the entire flight. The entertainment was great, but the screen are so tiny and the picture quality was terrible. Comfort is huge on flights that long and it was not comfortable. I felt like $1600 should have gotten me a bit more."

Food is not so satisfactory."
Pros: "The crew took care of their passengers' needs throughout the flight with plenty of food and drinks."

Pros: "As above"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient. Entertainment and food great."
Cons: "Crew was unusually subpar for Etihad. They were not nice, not attentive, not responsive. The plane was packed and loud with uncontrollable children and people having coughing fits. I did not see the nanny or flight attendants helping either situation e.g. offering water to the sick, ect. The toilet room was disgusting. The seat was cramped."
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Everything was bullshit!"
Pros: "Charging for devices at the seat, not too cramped."
Cons: "Out of DC, they weighed every carryon item both at check in and at the gate. I couldn’t fill my water bottle before boarding or I would have been overweight... I’ve never had an airline be so picky. And then they lost one of my bags - ironic given the precision about baggage weight."

Cons: "They switched off the entertainment 50 hours before landing"
Pros: "The Crew was responsive and attentive."
Cons: "The On Boarding process, a bit too many checks on the weight of Carry ons (7Kg)and Laptop Bag (5Kg), which was a big inconvenience and I never experienced with any other airlines and believe me I have flown on virtually every airline. The food options were limited and the crew ran out of food choices (Veg) fast."
Pros: "Very professional and accommodating crew on board. The Abu Dhabi lounge was large and looked very beautiful with it's appointments, but it was also packed with people (late time of day, I know), noisy with men pacing around shouting on their cell phone headsets, and I wasn't aware of the many services they had like the spa, no one informed me when I checked in. I understand this airport has a lot of business and first class travelers from all countries, but they need to better organize the lounge into designated "quiet areas" for people like me where cell phone use isn't permitted, family areas, where the kids can run around screaming unimpeded like they were, and also direct newcomers into areas where there are less passengers so you can find a place to sit & grab food without wandering around this cavernous place looking for a place of respite"
Cons: "The experience of transferring through the Abu Dhabi airport was a little hellish--very hot (I know it's the ME in summer), long lines, I was patted down in a cabin by a security office because of the underwires in my bra, which I was cool with, but my carry on luggage was kept outside the cabin area with my passport and money with people swarming through in lines. Not cool. I've probably never had an international transport experience like this, outside of Cuba where they pulled me aside and interrogated me by agents even though I had a visa and had documentation I was presenting at an education conference at the government state hotel, (and I'm Panamanian American, I speak Spanish, maybe that's why they though I was a scientist/spy). This airport definitely needs more basic staff and better organization. But I'd have to say this wasn't any worse-- other than the heat--- of any US or European transfer experience I've had in the last 10 years. Lounge staff in Abu Dhabi were kind of jerks compared to other airports, they were very stand offish (like they couldn't be bothered to help you, or maybe it was my Canadian/American accent)."
Cons: "A380 was an excellent plane. Quiet, great entertainment... decent leg room. highly recommended."
Pros: "Crew, service, more seat room."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding but that's it!"
Pros: "It's amazing flight ever Ghezlan the hostess she awesome and helpful with all the passengers I love her cause she's wonderful"
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "Entertainment could be improved in terms of choices."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Crew was rude, very offstandish. We asked for vegetarian meals online. Crew acted like it was our fault for being vegetarians. My wife asked one of the stewardesses for water and she never brought. When we asked for it again she brought it and said "here" like she was bothered to have to bring water."
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic Crew wss average in service"
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Bad seats, bad legroom and very cramped isles"
Pros: "Is very nice is on time on everything ...."
Cons: "Everything is good"
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Economy class seats hard to stretch"
Pros: "i have nothing to like in the flight."
Cons: "no service you can call ten time if they come one time you lucky.very very roud crew and very discrimination place.also when i was fly los angeles to abu dhabi the guy name muhammad threat me many time for food he made mistake on my food and top on that he was threating me i hope some one in this air line take care of this but i'm not sure any one going to care for this and he was saying he is supervisor."
Cons: "my suitcase plastic zipper was opened by someone in the ground staff at IGI Delhi and a few items were stolen. something needs to be done about this because I am sure other passengers are losing a lot more"
Cons: "No person travelling from New York received their luggage in New Delhi. After a frustrating wait in Abu Dhabi terminus for 24 hours to be subjected to another wait & search for luggage & eventually fill the displaced luggage forms was quite an ordeal. The only silver lining was that the luggage was eventually sent home after 72 hours. NEVER EVER RECOMMEND ETIHAD FOR TRAVELLING"
Cons: "1 piece of luggage was missing from flight EY218 on 18 June 2016. Wheel of one luggage was broken when the luggage was received at the belt after flight EY 218 landed at New Delhi"
Pros: "Staff were helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Some people stood near the bathrooms talking for a quite a long time and it might have been nice if the staff had asked them to sit down to keep the corridor clear and to keep the noise down. Overall this was not a big deal."

London airport it very large, we had to take the train from our terminal to the main hub, then pass the security all over, and take the train to a different terminal.

Cons: "I booked flight for my parents from Kayak for the first time. The confirmation number was: KAYAK Booking Reference KE40651 British Airways Record Locator 3IMN38 Booking Date Jan 24, 2021 So British airways cancelled the flight may days before the flight date and they notified Kayak but Kayak sent me no notification. At the time of check in we found that the flight was cancelled. It was such a hassle. I called kayak to rebook frantically since it was very important to travel right away. Your customer service was pathetic. I was told to cancel my british airways reservation and then I have to wait 24 hours for another department to call me to talk to me about rebooking choices. There was no concern from your customer service that since u are at fault so make correction for it right away by rebooking it. You guys didnt inform us for cancellation of the flight that happened days before the flight. I didnt like what Kayak rep was telling me and called British airways again to see if they would do something. They then were able to rebook me the following day with 2 stops instead of one stop which I had booked. So my parents took the flight with one day delay with extra stops. I had such a horrible experience with Kayak. I will never rebook from Kayak again."
Cons: "On time."
Cons: "Amazing"
Pros: "Co pilot chat"
Cons: "Couldn’t sleep - seat didn’t recline properly"
Pros: "One of the crew used bad words toward one of the passenger ..!"
Pros: "good"
Cons: "ok"
Pros: "total flight bsolutely excelente custumer service stuffs was very friendly outbound and inbound no dilays"
Cons: "not aplicable"
Cons: "The staff at the check in at the front desk were not helpful. Some personnel do not even have the training how to handle the passengers who have already checked in and have the boarding pass with them and even not polite."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and had to sit on the tarmac for 40 minutes. Almost missed the next flight. Rude British Airways stewards."
Pros: "There was a lot of carry on luggage on this flight, like the one from Denver to Heathrow, but it was handled in a much better manner. We were invited to board early if we check in our carry on luggage. During the boarding process the crew gave continious reminders to place items under the seat which fit there, This lead to a very smooth boarding process."
Cons: "No basic drinks and snacks were offered. Of cousrse, meal type foods cost money, but it should be possible to provide something to drink on or snack."
Pros: "None"
Cons: "Took about a month to book an infant ticket, then was issued a ticket with a wrong name, which then took another 3 weeks to be amended. When checking in, the agent told me that my daughter's ticket was not linked to anyone and looked like she was flying solo even though I mentioned to 5 different customer service agents that I would like to add her to my itinerary. Just when I thought it couldn't be worse, captain announced that they were having trouble with the AC for my part of the plane, meaning 7 hour flight was hotter than 80 degrees. I should also mention that trash was not collected until breakfast service."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Actually was British Airways and not another airline. Service was great."
Pros: "The title says it all"
Pros: "on time, attentive staff and it worked as expected.No hassles on luggage"
Pros: "Good crew and efficient service."
Cons: "Not the most comfortable business class seats. Had a hard time getting any sleep."
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "The seat in the so-called business class was too narrow even for a very slim person. The middle seat was too awful!"
Pros: "Dinner was quite good. And yes, the seats were comfortable. But the aircraft was probably from the 90's"
Cons: "Entertainment system was really archaic ... No USB slot to charge phones ... Breakfast was ok ok ... not good."
Pros: "The crew was very hard working. Plenty of good quality food. I had ordered gluten-free, and was very satisfied. The entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Good experience all around."
Pros: "Lots of video entertainment options and economy plus was very comfortable."
Cons: "A380 takes a long time to load everyone onto plane and get everyone off the plane as well."
Pros: "Choices of things to do while waiting for the connecting flight."
Cons: "London layover waiting to get gate details for flight to Barcelona. Very confusing to get to the connecting flight."
Pros: "Friendly staff. The food was Ok. The flight was on time."
Cons: "People kept bumping into my shoulder but i guess there isn't much that can be done about it."
Cons: "A one hour connection in london heathrow is near to impossible. I lost my connection i was suppose to be in madrid at 11am and it was suppose to be a 10-11 hours of travel. I wont make it to madrid until 6pm incremeting my travel time to a total of 24 hours for this reason it was and is a POOR and mediocre flight!"
Cons: "All was good."
Pros: "crew was nice and friendly food was good bit old aircraft so little bit less comfortable"
Cons: "Checked-in baggage got mishandled and haven't got any response from British airlines after 24 hrs of complain filed. and on top of it their website is not working can't update my contact details and also cant track status of my complain."
Pros: "I like that they upgraded the seat. My other flights, however, were garbage. This particular one was pleasant."
Cons: "Dude with stank breath constantly burping in my direction. Not your fault, I know."
Pros: "Lots of delays due to technical problems with the plan. Had to be moved onto another plane. More than 3 hour delay."
Cons: "Flight was delayed after arrival at Heathrow for 4 hours Baggage lost did not get it even after the end of the trip There wasn’t much of help or effort from the airlines to track baggage Even my 8 year old son said ... never board British airways"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable again."
Cons: "Crew seemed to be a little more aggressive and rude than last flight from BA."
Pros: "Crew were fine, food okay, found a decent movie. All things considered it was all right."
Cons: "Boarding. Second time in a row flying out of Heathrow that I've had to queue up for a bus ride to get to the plane."
Pros: "Everything was fine, food was better than expected, on time"
Cons: "This was a connecting flight and they should allow extra time when changing terminals. 2 hours was BARELY enough with 2 20 minute bus rides and a huge line at security, to top it off, 1/4 mile of moving walkway was shut down for no apparent reason. These are Heathrow issues, not really BA issues."
Cons: "Even non-alcoholic drinks had to be purchased (and only with a credit card)."
Pros: "Modern plane, great crew"
Cons: "Free seat next to me, kept getting filled by unassigned passengers, cramping my situation. One old lady took the seat & was snoring."
Pros: "Food and service were great!"
Cons: "Babies crying, hate flying with Babies! Guy behind me kept pulling and kicking my seat, pain in the aaa!"
Cons: "NO beverages, not even water, except for purchase"
Pros: "Terminal 5"
Cons: "Disgusted that they wanted to charger £11 pp to change seat at check-in 24hrs prior to the flight!"
Cons: "security in Heathrow was AWFUL. There was only ONE person working to screen luggage AND check luggage that was questionable. There wee 15 people waiting for luggage who almost missed their connections. I sprinted through the airport and made my connection with 2 minutes to spare."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and dated touch screens"
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "Poor food options"
Cons: "Food was awful! In a 7:30 hour flight just one small meal and one bar for breakfast! They ran out of tomato juice the first round and there was only one round of drinks in the whole flight!!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and they have wo"
Pros: "More space than newer airplanes."
Cons: "No onboard entertainment."
Pros: "The plane, that is. Seats are small in economy. The plane was hot. And we spent an hour on the runway with no air for a mechanical issue. At least the service was nice."
Cons: "Time on runway. Seats uncomfortable. Entertainment is old and small screens - hard to see."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, gracious and helpful. Adequate space for my knees."
Cons: "I was in the middle seat, but surprisingly didn't feel too squished on this relatively short flight. I don't remember receiving food which means that it was neither good nor bad enough for me to think about it."
Pros: "Both of my flights had no person in the middle seat, so I was able to spread out more in the space which made it much easier to get some sleep, especially on my red eye flight!"
Cons: "No complaints; great service! I'd definitely fly British airways again."
Cons: "Wait for shower was more than one hour - really do you expect people with 10 hours to cone to lounge Food was minimal for breakfast and should take cue from their boston lounge"
Cons: "That the flight was delayed and we had to run to make our connection. The flight attendant reassured us that we were making up the lost time in the air and there was going to be no issues."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew."
Cons: "Food and entertainment. Food needs improvement. Screen was outdated and blurred."
