Didn’t announce reason for delay. Staff was vague about departure time. Flight crew could have asked if we need help in figuring out the controls and adjustments. Staff needs to be more helpful

Very good crew and service . Can improve on seating space

Goods

It was hot inside the plane and the boarding was very crowded. But the seat comfort, and entertainment are spectacular

Spacious seating was great! Food could have been better!

unfortunately we were unable to travel at this time due to the ongoing Covid situation in Sri Lanka. we hope to go instead in March 2022.

Pros: "The crew was amazing. very helpful and great services."
Cons: "While waiting in the check-in line, it would be better if one of the crew would come and ask the travellers if they have got everything. cause I had my Covid test and it was negative. However, they said that my final destination place won't accept my test. rather me waiting on the line that was not moving ahead at all, I could have sort things out some way. So, it would be nice if the crew would come to the passenger on the line just to make sure they have everything right."
Pros: "The seat that I picked."
Cons: "Running water in the bathroom"
Pros: "Amazing crew. Very attentive to passengers and genuinely nice."
Cons: "As such everything was fine."
Cons: "Food from New York to doha was average. Doha to Karachi excellent. Over all it was excellent experience. People on the ground at doha airport was exceptional. Very courteous and ready to go serve. This is what I call real service."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable. The entertainment system was wonderful."
Cons: "The crew was disorganized."
Cons: "Every thing is good"
Pros: "Because I was in the bulkhead seat - it was good."
Cons: "My first flight arrived 30 min late which meant that my 50-minute layover was tight. But instead of holding the next plane for us, they forced us to re-book on a flight leaving 14 hours later! I was not ok with this so I pushed the issue and they put me on the flight leaving 6hrs later. :-((((("
Pros: "seat was okay, far from comfortable, plane too cold, although they did have blankets, late boarding, no particular reason, it's probably not Qatar's fault, but baggage service at JFK was terrible."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. I upgraded to business class and am so happy I did for the 16 hour flight."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Delighteful experience"

Cons: "Qatar counter check asked how long I will be staying in Ho Chi Minh, even though my visa expired in 2022! Surprise and they are aware of my ticket with a return in Thi September. Then I was asked for how long I will stay is not of Qatar concern. Too much of concern!"
Pros: "Service and food were excellentpA"
Cons: "Announcement volume too loud"
Cons: "Ord to Doh: People kept window blinds open all through 15 hour flight Flight temperature kept very warm"
Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."
Pros: "decent leg room. the staff was accommodating"
Cons: "the brea was har. some of the food was overheated thus making it hard to eat"
Pros: "The ease of connection from New York to Nagpur. It was a breeze."

Also, the only male guy in the crew was trying to solve some meal issues and was trying to tell the hostess how not to tell the passenger!! All of it could be easily conveyed discreetly but he seemed to be least bothered!"

Pros: "Airport staff were friendly, Flight crew were good. I was in an exit row so I can't comment much about normal economy, but my legroom was fine. lots of movies to choose from. Deplaned onto a bus, that took us right to the Transfer Security which saved me a recently long walk."
Pros: "attentive crew food was good"
Cons: "old entertainment options little space to move about"

They said that they have to charge me a $615 penalty on top of the $750 i had payed for the ticket for cancellation. They mentioned that ill be refunded my $750 from qatar as they got a waiver for me. I received $250 from qatar airways and nothing yet. Airfare's customer service staff is highly uncooperative and v rude"

The cabin crew was excellent all the time. Thank you Emirates."
Cons: "There was no option during check in to request meal options- ex vegetarian request."
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "Layout of plane is very convenient , bathroom acessable, no crowding in isles. Love the dining cards & choice of meals, and the comfort features ( blankets , pillows , toiletry bag) The entertainment center is also amazing! Perfect for long flights. So many choices & also power usage also great for the passengers on long flights. Also, normally I try not to use the lavatory, they are usually awful, but these make the most of their space, warm water, nice soap,colognes,seat liners."
Cons: "Apparently, operational issues in Athens, no information of why we had to go to an additional security at the gate, including a litmus test, go through our bags again & a light pat down!

Pros: "Overall a pleasant and comfortable flight."
Pros: "Food and crew"

Cons: "All flights were consistently delayed"
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment is very good."
Cons: "For in-flight service call to flight attendant, it took 30 mins for response, and in the meantime two attendants walked by and waved me off. The next time I asked an attendant for water, he said sure he would get it, but he never showed up. Their water & juice service is not adequate for long-haul flights. Dubai has poor air quality, which might be bothersome for a long layover."
Pros: "Impecable! Not too many announcements! Absolutely gorgeous plane, great crew, good bathrooms, comfy seats, more room, the plane is so huge you don't feel a take off or landing. Easy pleasant check in process. Thank you!"

Pros: "The airline still runs like a well-oiled machine. Everything is efficient and staff are courteous. Flights are on time and reliable. DXB airport is easy to navigate. New on-board headphones design is an improvement."
Cons: "Cost saving cuts are evident around every corner. No more night mask, flight socks and toothbrush. No more hot lemon towel upon boarding (only towards end of flight). Food tray is smaller and more compact than before, turns Dinner into a game of Tetris (although, not a fun 'game'). Flights aboard A380 are much more comfortable than in Boeing 777."
Pros: "Before we can reserve Child food while selecting the seats now no more, can this option be available again."
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised how great our travel with Emirates was. We usually fly in business class when traveling to Europe, but this time we were pleasantly surprise that the economy on our flight was as good as business on most American airlines.

Cons: "Dear, Team Emirates Airlines Good afternoon, I would like to share my horrible Customer Experience that happened to me in my whole life experiences with airline services. On Sunday March the 13th my wife Dyma Gharaibeh and my daughter Retal Aly were travelling to Jordan on ur airways for the 1st time from 15 year's to try such service and to face this experience. I've been always dealing with Lufthansa airlines throughout my entire life and heard that emirates airlines serves passengers good service and hospitality so i said to myself why not trying them to my wife and daughter this time and see there service and what they can offer. But as shown to me 1st and last time to even mention on my mind to travel on this kind of terifying service ever. They had a delay in the dubai airport for an hour they changed flights so that they won't be late, but by the time they changed the flights so quickly to go to the other plan to go to Jordan the luggage of my wife and daughter were on the other plan that came from Dallas, Texas. The horrible mistake that was made is that luggages EK 021286 & EK 021287 & EK 021288 & EK 021289 was still in the plan that was coming from dallas and no one even checked that my wife Dyma Gharaibeh and Retal Aly was the only two passengers on the flight that were going to Jordan. Which i call in very loud voice unprofessional by all means for a huge airways like Emirates that represents the whole UAE. They arrived to Jordan with no bags at all and they stayedfor whole two days with out clothes plus the stress they were in for having that offal feeling that they lost there bags . The big huge complain from me today is that my wifes brother wedding was yesterday the day they received the bags at night which they received the bags after the wedding was over. .. They missed the wedding dress in the bag for both of them tell me the feeling of you as a huge company that should be aware of every single problem that could happen to the customers that deals with you. You made that day from being an amazing day full of fun and joy for them to get dressed and going to the wedding of her brother and be like everyone in the wedding to not going to the wedding because they didn't have enough time in a day to get another dresses for both of them. This nightmare was not taken into consideration the office in Jordan didn't answer at all for several times i tried to reach them and couldn't because of there lake of professionalism. Even after the bags arrived no body even sent an email or tried to check on the case or even if we r satisfied or not. Very very very poor service. Hell of a NIGHTMARE..... Seriously one word shame on you as a huge big company like you to have us have this disgusting experience with you guys Seriously, there is not enough words to express the anger i have inside of me from Emirates Airlines and showed share this disgusting customer experience everywhere. . I think this will be my last time in my entire life"
Pros: "The airplanes are confortable and the crew and service very good. For a 3 hour flight that even provided a full meal. Other airlines would have only give you peanuts"

Cons: "Check in process is a disaster. The passenger is asked to even weight the luggage to be said by the machine to gonto a counter without good reason: the only thing missing with LATAM is to pilote the plane. Awful."
Pros: "Close to nothing. If i had to applaud something it would be the fact that you have an option to check in early via your mobile or laptop."
Cons: "LATAM was incredibly unprofessional, alarming, and entirely non-communicative. After a 3 hour delay that caused me (and tons of others) to miss a connecting international flight, LATAM’s telephone servers had the nerve to claim I was a no show and needed to pay them for my absence. This resulted in a long discussion where I was held on hold until they could adequately determine that yes i missed the flight because they held us late. This was the only way that i was able to avoid their charge to me for being a “no show.”"
Cons: "The boarding in Rio de Janeiro was great, the land crew was very helpful. In Lima it was below par, the crew was not helpful at all, and no warnings or communications to when to board. Had to wait an hour inside the plane for some sort of maintenance."

Pros: "I like the service, the staff are more helpful to us and lots of different from other airline services. Especially they treat every passenger equally or all the same with given out for any extra cost e.g. food, drinks, entertainement any thing we need while we are up in the air needs. Different from the first class section service in special airfare cost. Love to fly every time when I want to visit my families around the world. Keep it up the good work LATAM Fika Maiava - Sydney"

Pros: "Rescheduled on to a different airline."
Cons: "Delayed"

Cons: "Overbooked flight we had to wait with baby and 4 years old kid till last minute to know if we could get on board or not.

When that said yes you're flying they forced us to move faster otherwise the fly would be delayed. Mdvela@gmail.com or 0064212154973 if you want to known more ( there is more).

Pros: "I travel a lot and for an international flight during lunch time I expected more than a small sandwich. Small airplane (A320) so no personal screen and tight spaces between seats. Service was ok. Flight ok. I miss big airplanes between Chile and Brasil"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Missed my first leg and then they canceled my return leg without telling me. I then had to pay for a new flight"
Pros: "The staff at the airport was very helpful. I got in the wrong line (domestic instead of international) but they still checked me in and my luggage. I had to go over to the international line to drop my luggage and didn't have to get in line once again. The crew was very nice and I was impressed that we received a meal for a 4 hour flight. Although I understand it was considered an international flight, I wasn't expecting a full blown meal. SUPER GREAT!"
Cons: "Latam Flight was delayed for maintenance and notice was not given via email/text or call. Desk agent pointed at paper taped on desk and asked us to read about the delay vs telling us what to expect."
Cons: "Old airplane"
Cons: "Latin service can come across as abrupt"

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The crew seemed to ish they were somewhere else. I was in business class and had to beg for a drink after an hour of flying."

Standard flight. Could be better by taking off and/or arriving at scheduled time.

Cons: "Better bathroom access for premium economy"
Pros: "Amazingly helpful and friendly crew."

Cons: "Food is definitely not as good as international airlines."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "one of the crew members (Ana) was not only rude and bumping the food cart everywhere, she apparently did not learning as kid the basic of thank you and please. In addition her personal manners of cleaning her nose with her hand, was not only disgusting but unhygienic."
Cons: "Food, boarding and some training for some of the crew"
Pros: "The crew and the seats were okay."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost 2 hrs. We should receive credits for that."
Pros: "Food was surprisingly tasty for airplane food, vote would be lovely if someone could figure out how to produce a hash brown at the passenger seat without having it be limp"
Cons: "I’m guessing that a great many passengers would happily pay 10% more on their fair to have 10% fewer seats on board so that was actually possible to achieve a state of modest comfort while flying in a 12 hour flight."
Cons: "No entertainment or WiFi at all"
Pros: "First class for such a short haul."
Cons: "Lack of service."
Pros: "Old plane with new seats. The exit row window seat — which they rate as a preferred seat was terrible as the exit door sticks into the plane and takes away your room. And the seat doesn’t recline - they forget to say that."
Cons: "New Airplane"
Cons: "Broken entertainment control set seat 11 window."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful, and flight was relatively pleasant."

Cons: "My bags were lost and didn't arrive in New York with. They were not delivered until 1am that night."
Pros: "Smooth flight, got in early."
Cons: "Breakfast was average. Could do better"
Cons: "American wins tge coach torture contest!"
Cons: "American Airlines won't let you buy emergency row exit seats (or bulk head) because the 'code share' prevents them from advance seat sales. I was told I could do it at check in in Los Angeles. But those seats were sold out long before we even got to LA! I contacted American Airlines Customer Relations about 1 month prior to my flight. I completed their online form detailing the problem and asked if there is any way I could buy extra leg room seats. But they never even bothered to respond. I got the automated email acknowledging receipt of my complaint and assuring me I would be contacted soon. NOT!!"
Pros: "The Boeing 787 from LAX to Auckland was noticeably more comfortable than the Airbus 321 I flew to LAX to start the trip. Food was actually good!"
Cons: "For an obviously new aircraft the space between rows was horrendous. I am 5ft4in tall and when I sat down my knees touched the seat in front of me. When the passenger in front of me tilted his seat back I couldn’t even cross my legs! I like Qantas but I have learned to abhor American Airlines (which operated this flight), next time I will probably use Air New Zealand purely because of the seat situation."
Cons: "Food service was not announced. Take off was delayed one hour"
Pros: "New plane, great crew on board."
Cons: "seats were hard especially for a 13 1/2 hour flight."
Pros: "it was a bit bumpy all the way to NOLA, but we still got drinks and snacks, and flight attendants were very nice"
Pros: "Very upset this was an American Airlines Plane and not Quantas. There was very little room so it was an extremely uncomfortable 13+ hour redeye flight."
Cons: "Bait and switch tactics, size of seats."
Pros: "The food was good, the crew was very professional. The flight was on time. The seats were OK, but not conducive to sleeping."
Cons: "We weren't assigned seats together. It ultimately worked out OK because I was assigned to sit between a mother and her young child. They asked if they could have my middle seat so they could sit together - hurray! After that, the person in the aisle seat next to my husband was willing to swap her aisle seat for my new-found aisle seat. But on long flights, greater efforts should be made to seat couples together."
Pros: "Smooth operation, on time"
Cons: "Seat pitch on the plane unbelievably cramped. When seats are so close that if you drop something on the floor you have to be a contortionist to get it, you know it's a problem NEVER fly the 787-900 economy."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "I booked a LATAM flight for a 10.5 hour flight specifically because they have better in flight entertainment. I arrived at the airport and found it it was operated by AA. 10.5 hours with zero in flight entertainment. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE."
Cons: "The seats were really bad, it was our first trip on a 787 and I will never do it again. Not as bad as the Airbus from MIA but considering it's 13 hours it was totally rubbish. We normally fly the 777 with Air NZ, after this we will go back to them. The staff, as always were helpfull and pleasant, the plane was quiet but the seats....."
Pros: "Arriving on time for the next connection"
Pros: "The dinner was decent"
Cons: "There was NO in-seat entertainment or place to charge mobile devices. Very uncomfortable seats. This plane was very old. 9.5 hr flight was pretty unpleasant."
Cons: "A couple of flight attendants were a bit grumpy/short with passengers. Lack of food definitely not ideal but glad they could get something given circumstances with health department. Still waiting for promised vouchers to arrive."
Pros: "Food! Friendly crew"
Pros: "Not very much positive to say unfortunately. The staff were good and did as much as they could to keep up feed and happy."
Cons: "The plane was extremely old and dated. Never been on such an old plane with no up to date equipment or facilities. The chairs were very uncomfortable and the food was awful. There was no personal entertainment screen for an 11 hour flight and only one of the safety demonstration screens was working during take off. Also no plugs at all."
Cons: "We thought we were going to be flying on British Airways American Airways."
Cons: "The employees treated me poorly"
Pros: "NA"
Cons: "No individual TVs, electric plug nor WiFi"
Cons: "Extremely old plane"
Pros: "Fantastic"
Cons: "None"
Cons: "crew did not pick up the food tray for a long time crew borderline corteous"
Cons: "Lost our bag in LAX"
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Boarding is terrible at DCA for commuter flights. You get on a bus packed in like sardines and the stand there for 15 minutes."
Pros: "Very comfortable and nice staff"
Cons: "Had a 2.5 delay on one of my connectors from NY to Madrid. Was worried I wouldn't make my flight to Vigo on time, but I did!"
Pros: "Leaving the plane was my favorite part. Entertainment was one of the best (American run flight and plane)."
Cons: "Seats were very cramped and did not recline enough to get comfortable. Temperature of the cabin was hot then cold. No sleep again. But the cabin crew looked refreshed in the morning. Guess they had better seats. It should be a law that all airline employees from the CEO on down should only be able to fly in coach. Maybe then the seats will get better."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The flight attendant was arrogant. This is her job... just for $$$"
Pros: "Very nice gate crew, efficient boarding, quick and efficient takeoff"
Cons: "Found out that a lot of Argentinians do not obey the crew rules. Before the seatbelt sign turns off they already start moving to the front of the plane. But off course is not the airline duty to teach manners."
Pros: "Wonderful flight"
Pros: "The plane size and the individual monitors on each seat."
Cons: "Some of the attendants didn't seem to know what they were doing."
Pros: "On time performance; friendly, competent staff."
Cons: "Seats far too close together even for cosch"

Unhelpful and unwilling to help with connections

Wheelchair service always a weak point in Heathrow...

I did not appreciate having to pay $800 for two Premium Economy pre-selected seats. $400 would have been outrageous itself; the additional $400 was an insult representing a non/refundable amount when the exact same flight had to be the-booked due to a system error. It would be refreshing if someone could address this in a response. Elizabeth Jett ejett@mac.com

Pros: "The flight was pleasant and we landed early."
Cons: "British Airways should at least give out small bottles of water or cookies to soften passengers affinity towards the airline. I did not buy anytjing but was also not served anything. In comparison to low cost carriers, I felt underappreciated."
Cons: "Must have been an old plane; the seats were a bit worn and the screens are tiny."
Pros: "Very nice crew"
Cons: "The boarding process, better seats, outdated entertainment system, & slow Baggage delivery ."
Pros: "Everything was impeccable"
Cons: "Nothing except the rude passagers. But that is out of the hands of the airline.."
Cons: "Honestly nothing needed improvement/ it was a really good experience!"
Cons: "Pre boarding at the gate was slightly chaotic"
Pros: "Service was good on the plane"
Cons: "Thought I had purchased an optima coach, but was forced to pay $60 baggage fee. At checkin, asked for aisle seat, but agent had already assigned a middle seat. Then asked to change to an aisle seat, but she demanded $30 to change. Aftwr boarding was complete, there were at least 6 aisle seats empt"
Cons: "They took too long for check in. The crew was confused"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "They charged for drinks, even soft drinks! There were three annoying children sitting behind us all under the age of 8. They were unsupervised. I didn't think airlines would allow an entire row of kids to sit like this without an adult sitting with them. Their mother was across the aisle."
Pros: "The crew were polite and very helpful. The service was also good."
Cons: "The leg room in Economy is awful and my seat was very uncomfortable 44C I have long legs and when seats are reclined they encroach on the persons comfort behind. On such a long Haul flight from Perthto Sydney and then onto Singapore and London. Comfort should be a whole lot better. Boarding needs im"
Cons: "This was a really old plane. The screens were really small And was so scratched and messed up that it was almost impossible to use . I was never offered a choice of breakfast before I boarded and I could not get what I wanted. You do not offer enough space fo list all my comments. Very unfair"
Pros: "The crew was professional. Plenty of space to store my carry on bag overhead. I also like the safety video at the beginning, featuring actors and comedians."
Cons: "I have no complaints about this flight."
Pros: "Customer service of the in flight crew is absent."
Pros: "Food and service were excellent! The best I've had in a long time!"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Flight was delayed several times and the plane was really old, thought they would have something better but the staff did what they could to accommodate passengers."
Pros: "When we finally took off."
Cons: "Flight was delayed >3.5 hours because of an "electrical problem affecting in-flight entertainment system and 1st and Business Class seats. After powering down the aircraft c. 3 times at 11:15pm CT the electrical system miraculously worked as normal."
Pros: "Food ok"
Cons: "No tv in headrest, also outlets didn’t work, almost lost my mind"
Cons: "Very cramped in economy!"
Pros: "Simple. Arrived (late) to my destination(s) in one piece. Pleasant flight crew."
Cons: "Expected more for my money...In flight services (movies) screens were very small and hard to see. No charging outlets for phones. Flights were delayed. No sense of urgency mentality? (Don’t get me started on the London airport experience)."
Pros: "Easy flight schedules"
Cons: "Legroom in first class is a joke."
Pros: "Flight was onetime, food on the flight was for purchase but it was vert nice, boarding was onetime and smooth."
Pros: "Plane had to be de-iced which delayed departure time and then wait for landing slot."
Cons: "Heathrow need to build more capacity to reduce emissions and delays."
Pros: "Care taken of passengers on trip from London to Boston was excellent amenities were what I have come to expect from BA."
Cons: "Trip from Boston to London lacked amenities and service"
Pros: "Comfortable enough seats"
Cons: "Not even drinks were served"
Pros: "It flies"
Cons: "No courtesy! At least soft drinks ought to be on the house - they even charge for water - disgusting compared to US airless that at least offer you nuts and a drink for free! BA is now in the EasyJet-RyanAir league! Awful!"
Pros: "I got there. It was safe."
Cons: "Entertainment system shut off."
Cons: "Total confusion boarding following a three hour delay. Food terrible. The total opposite travel experience flying BA to London. Very disappointing experience returning home on BA"
Pros: "Felt room in spite of being in coach. Friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "I liked arriving safely at my destination despite a delay due to atc strike. Thank you BA pilots for doing a great job. Not to mention politely letting passengers come view the flight deck during the delay to ease the boredom."
Cons: "When kindly asked a question by me, one of the staff didn't understand and instead kept insisting we didn't need a landing card (we did). Tried to rephrase the question and she persisted without trying to understand, rolling her eyes and swearing under her breath. Oh, and did I mention the part where we had to pay for our checked bags again? 75€ per bag. For me and my wife, that's the equivalent of a third ticket for our flight. May as well had our luggage fly next to us. So rude staff and exorbitant pricing for things that somehow weren't logged through third party. Cheers! (Sarcasm)"
Cons: "Paying $7000+ For a seat like this is a travesty"
Pros: "There were no complications with my flight"
Cons: "Food is not so good, and the flight entertainment and amenities are not as good as other airlines."
Pros: "Timely."
Cons: "The airplane was really old. The screens wouldn't start for a really long time. Very, very few options for movies and the screen and sound had terrible quality. Food was not really good."
Cons: "for the price I paid the service did not offer complimentary food or even water or soda."
Pros: "They try there best"
Cons: "The union bull......"
Cons: "The BA agent Giles, was rude and spoke to us condescending. His inept handling of rescheduling my family caused us to not only be split up in our flight from London to Vienna, but the majority of us had to wait 10 hours for the next flight. He could've rescheduled us together, but instead he ignored my sister's request to do so, rudely told us to get back in line, and rescheduled another family on the same flight as my sister, thus eliminating our seats together, and forcing her to travel alone."
Pros: "As ever, BA Flight attendants are courteous and approachable - consistently one of the best adverts fort the airline."
Cons: "Poor quality of service and courtesy provided by outsourced ground handling providers"
Pros: "What a different experience in relation to last week!"
Pros: "quick luggage delivery in Lisbon"
Pros: "Staff was very friendly both on board and at check in."
Cons: "No beverage service for free. Even a tea. Paid for seat even when I checked in 24 hours before the flight no airline charges a fee once it's check in time for a regular seat and luggage was also more expensive at $45 usually $25. I also arrived early and wanted to get on the earlier flight where here was room but they did not accommodate for free would have been $500 more"
Pros: "Nice to be able to check carry on at the gate. Clean."
Cons: "Why not have an option to check carry on at check-in?"
Cons: "The entertainment system was pretty old, screens weren't great and selection a bit thin...But other than that it was all good."
Cons: "The airline overbooked the flight and kicked us, along with 100 other passengers, off the flight and forced us onto a non-direct flight. They violated Passenger Rights, and every member of their staff treated us incredibly rudely. Due to their violations and illegal behavior, I am seeking legal counsel and plan to take the necessary action. I DO NOT recommend British Airways and will NEVER fly the airline again."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good, tv entertainment has a lot more choices now, decent leg room, smooth landing and take off,"
Cons: "Flight being late 2 hours and we had to sit in the plane for that amount of time, they didn't their refreshment service early"
Pros: "Easy and quick boarding. Dinner tasty, but it is hard to cut a fillet steak without hitting the next passenger in the elbow"
Cons: "Only one check-in agent running all desks including bag drop - long wait. 19 year-old 747 had narrow seats in premium economy, uncomfortable and too much body contact with adjacent passengers. Outbound to SFO in an Airbus 380 had sparkling wine pre-take off, hot towels twice, this DEN-LHR flight only had juice or water on offer (crew said "don't serve that on this route") no hot towels, crew's objective seemed to be get around cabin in one go and leave Pax to it Breakfast was abysmal, soft-pretzel roll, no juice or water served, just indifferent coffee"
Pros: "Flight left and arrived ontime and early both departure and arrival."
Cons: "Seats are a bit uncomfortable in economy,"
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hours in Athens due to London fog. BA did nothing for passengers with connections. No information given nor attempts to hold connections. Missed our connection by 5 minutes. Could see the airplane pulling out after RUNNING through the airport for 15 minutes to catch it. There were 7 passengers on this connection. This was unacceptable"
Pros: "Crew was okay. Boarding was okay."
Cons: "Food was not great. Snack was a candy bar? No other options in back of the plane. Entertainment cut out and the system was difficult to operate and movie variety was not wonderful."
