Very nice, professional staff even after 13 hours of flight. Just excellent. Thank you for this very pleasant experience. Will definitely fly Singapore Airlines again."
Cons: "There is room for improvement with the special meals. The non gluten brun was very hard. In general it would be nice if passengers could pre-order from a set selection of foods online what they would like on their tray. This would hopefully lower the amount of food that sadly goes to waste. Also it would be nice to have gluten free snacks on board. Flying with celiac disease is not easy."

Pros: "The cabin crew was awesome.. they are for sure the super stars of the company... I wish all of them all the very best for a very bright future"
Cons: "The service of the airlines is impeccable. But the ground staff near check in were not so.

Pros: "Staff, food and emenities great for economy class"
Cons: "Inflight entertainment wasn't as extensive as in previous years."
Pros: "Great service and comfort."

Cons: "The layover time was too close for FRA. By the time everyone deplaned and was shuttled to the terminal by a bus it was already my boarding time. I had to rush through the passport control feeling nervous The seat pitch of the flight was narrow. I could not use my laptop once the person in front of me reclined."
Pros: "Crew was great"

Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "No major complaints."
Pros: "Very helpful crew, good food."
Cons: "Flight was one hour late."

Pros: "very on time (before time actually), great crew - professional but also very friendly and you could see they liked their journey that day."
Cons: "for that flight really nothing - great."
Pros: "We got two drinks, I had an empty seat next to me which made things more comfortable"

Pros: "Not a long flight, overhead lockers had space although I wasn't helped to find somewhere. Crew lovely otherwise."

Pros: "The Lufthansa app provides updates on plane status and gate number, etc."
Pros: "Crew was very kind and attentive"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Friendly crew."
Pros: "the flight from Frankfurt to Chicago was delayed by an hour. we have missed our connecting flight to Omaha. We were at the gate 8 minutes prior to departure, but United closed the gate right before our noses. Not cool. Horrible experience. My guess is that United has given our seats to someone else. After all United did the same thing to use once before. We will not travel United/Lufthansa again."
Cons: "Totally chaos and personal unprofessional and with very poor behavior."
Pros: "on time no hassle"
Cons: "nothing in particular"
Pros: "Very friendly atmosphere at boarding gate & helpful crew on journey, plus surprisingly good food foe economy class made for positive feel to this trip. Add to it the fact I caught a movie I'd missed seeing at cinema plus even getting a few hours sleep, this was probably one of my better long haul flights in recent times."
Cons: "45min to 1 hour is barely enough to switch the plane in Frankfurt. Distances between gates are very significant and if you are not running there is a possibility you not going to make your connecting flight. Information how to get to the Z gates are not clear and it really takes a long time with all passport check points and security to pass through."
Pros: "safely arrived; very pleasant crew"
Cons: "Late departurne and arrived about 45-60 minutes late; having to board on the tarmac rather than directly from the terminal."

Cons: "Cancelled then delayed then had to stay in Frankfurt and was a day late"
Pros: "Seats and table are small, very cramped quarters,I’m 6ft 1 &. 210 & it was very tight, can’t really stretch your legs out or get comfortable enough to sleep, the crew was very good, always spot on when needed & constantly offering drinks & warm towels."
Cons: "I really didn’t like our party being separated when we bought our tickets all together, my niece was uncomfortable being away from us on a long flight, this part of the booking process is very frustrating as your seat can be sold to someone willing to pay for it & you get moved unknowingly & when you go to board your seats have been changed."
Cons: "When I picked up my luggage one piece had a broken zipper and my belongings fell out"
Pros: "Everything as expected."
Pros: "Premium Economy was very comfortable"
Cons: "Food was delivered in a hurry just after we embarked A bit more relaxed would have been better"
Pros: "Crew good, food okish."
Cons: "Entertainment system below average. Disembarkment was poorly handled and resulted in big delays."
Cons: "Seat pitch is tight and seats don't recline. Boarding should be back of plane forwards. This would eliminate the log jam that happens when it's front first."
Pros: "Flight space was quite empty in my section so that was AMAZING. Crew was lovely and helped with a few requests for myself and travel companions. Very good selection on tv and movies and the refurbished aircraft was very comfortable for me on this flight. Probably helps having seat to self."
Cons: "Nothing on this occasion"
Cons: "Luggage Fees out of Croatia despite my One World Status were a big surprise!"
Cons: "Distance between seats on the low side i.e. not much leg room. TV screen again on the small size in comparison with other airlines. Ear phones poor build quality and sound. Plastic cutlery. Small meal trays. No hand wipes with meals. In comparison with other airlines BA is only an average carrier."
Pros: "Smooth landing"
Cons: "It was a bit warm"
Cons: "Connector was late so I’m stuck in London til tomorrow"
Pros: "There were lots of options for inflight entertainment"
Cons: "The seats are very squished together in economy class. I was very disappointed. I always ride economy but this flight (airline, crew, as accommodations) felt like a “cattle car”. The crew was professional but not friendly, warm, or welcoming. The leg room was limited - quite disappointed."
Pros: "It was just on time."
Cons: "The seats are very small hence not comfortable at all."
Pros: "Crew very pleasant, professional and friendly."
Cons: "Tired and dated cabin; seats extremely uncomfortable causing severe back pain. In flight entertainment very old fashioned with small low resolution screens."
Pros: "Crew fantastic. Seats very cramped so hard when travelling alone with people crammed next to you. I am very short and still found seat cramped. Blankets skimpy. Heathrow to San Fran. Johannesburg to Heathrow was more comfortable."
Cons: "Most things I give a high rate on BA but travelling economy these days is very cramped especially as I did two long international legs with short four hour break between."

Pros: "Both the crew and the leg room are awesome!"
Pros: "Crew was very professional, food options were excellent."
Pros: "I like that we were on time for departure"
Cons: "The speed boarding it was confusing,no one was there in the que until they called you to board then People starting to come up from the que that was already there. Speedy boarding should be exactly that."
Pros: "Staff were very kind and helpful"
Cons: "The two meals we received were not quite enough to see us through a 9 hour flight"
Pros: "The drew were helpful"
Cons: "Sitting on the tarmac. No vegan meals."
Pros: "This was the second leg of flight from Gatwick, short stay at St Lucia, only a short flight, didn't leave the plane there so boarding and food comments don't really apply to this flight. Crew changed over here - new crew as good as first leg, excellent, never had problems with this on BA."
Cons: "Entertainment poor, limited choice and mediocre screens. Is the Boeing 777 fleet due a refurb? If so, don't spoil the seats and legroom, but do update the in-flight entertainment system!"
Cons: "We love everything was our first time and was excellent"
Pros: "Amazing crew, kind and patient"
Cons: "Missed connection from LHR to INV, now sitting 8 hours at LHR waiting for the next flight. In a word, a disaster!"

Pros: "On time and comfortable flight."
Cons: "No free snacks."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Being delayed for 2.5 hours wasn’t pleasant. Once we finally boarded the crew members did apologise in person to all first class customers. I was sitting with my granddaughter right behind it. We felt like a second category customers.... nothing to add to it it shows it all"
Pros: "Comfortable on plane. Pleasant crew"
Cons: "Check in at Dusseldorf was a scrum. Aircraft significantly late."
Pros: "The title says it all"
Cons: "Not only do you now have to buy food and drink, by the back of the plane they’ve always run out (our flight was not even particularly full). Flight was delayed an hour - I’ve taken 4 BA flights in the last 5 days and every one has been delayed by at least one hour. No longer worth the price."
Pros: "It got me to my destination safely."
Cons: "Everything- BA’s relentless push downmarket means it’s justbtoo awful for words. Ryanair with better livery but more expensive."
Cons: "There was a charg for ALL drinks & food! This made the service process quite long & cumbersome."
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "Flight at a very inconvenient early time, though booked months ahed. The aircraft had no leg room at all, being excessively uncomfortable. You could not stay in the market with this rubbish in Australia."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and on time, plane was clean and warm."
Cons: "Did not think this was any better than the budget airlines, I expected more from British Airways, no entertainment on board - food limited, some gifts ran out."
Pros: "Food was tasty"
Cons: "Was delayed"
Pros: "Short flight so no food"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The Business Class accommodations and staff were excellent. The boarding process was on-time and painless and made a very long trip enjoyable. Despite my poor experience checking luggage, see the dislike comments, there were two employees who did go out of their way at the end of my poor check-in experience to help me. I did not get their names, but their good service was greatly appreciated. The plane crews were also awesome!"
Cons: "1.Outdated website information: I have a small travel guitar that fits in the overhead bins and I always take it with me when I travel, with no issues. It counts as my overhead carry-on. I checked the British Airways website prior to leaving the U.S. and it said small instruments were okay. I was able to board from San Jose, USA, with no issues. However, I was told at Heathrow that no stringed instruments were allowed at all, under no circumstances, ever, no matter the size, even Business Class, even First Class, even if other airports were not enforcing the rules. The rules that ARE NOT LISTED ON YOUR WEBSITE 2. Poor customer service: Due to the above, at Heathrow airport, I had mixed signals everywhere and had to check-in THREE times, twice to oversize, I was sent back and forth all over the place, finally having to go all the way through the airport to pay to have my item boxed. Most of the folks along the way were extremely unpleasant and rude and acted as if it was the craziest thing in the world that I would have a carry-on travel guitar. TRAVEL guitar, small, not full size, not needing any special treatment. Most of the agents, who knew I was struggling with this, did not help me, for example, I had to wait in line all over again, twice! There was one woman that tried to help me and put me to the front of the line on one occasion and the last agent was helpful as well. I did not get any names, which I should have, because at the end, I FINALLY had those two staff members who helped me (see liked comments). I still had to check my box, but the final agent really went out of her way to make me feel better about the experience because she could see that I was given the runaround. But the folks at Oversize and the pre-Security line, were absolutely horrible and rude. No excuse for it at all. None."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "All baggage lost. Wasn't put on the plane because they didn't have enough containers. Ground crew at London was courteous. Luggage had to be sent on to the US the next day. No free bags on this flight so all of the luggage lost had been paid for piece by piece. No free drink service; even a soda had to be paid for. No food, of course. Originating 10hr flight from Los Angeles to London was also uncomfortable, with small, packed coach seats, no air nozzles and poor headset connectors. I was very happy to get back on American Airlines for my return to Los Angeles. Wouldn't use BA again."
Pros: "Good size seats"
Cons: "The crew were rude and dismissive"
Pros: "News, Maps"
