Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Finally the staggered deboarding. It feels like COVID has actually disciplined us passengers this time and kept us from behaving like unruly cattle once the plane halts."
Cons: "Initial confusion at boarding with paperwork and onward passage through Athens,GREECE. Once again the airport teams reached out to my colleagues and I ahead of time and managed to resolve to satisfaction. Perhaps reservation team can trigger a call to the passengers while they are still at home asking for the documentation validation electronically over a secured database.... just a thought. Again, being a part of the Experience and Innovation team, travel and tourism needs less human interaction, now more than ever. While we digitalized the obvious, the exceptions can remain humanized."
Pros: "The crew we're super amazing. They made the ride comfortable! The captains are really awesome!! They made ride really smooth. The movies were so great. They made the ride interesting."

Pros: "Amazing staff"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and poor entertainment systems"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "No alcohol served"

Pros: "The other two seats in my row were not occupied"
Cons: "The excessive and second security checking at Doha"
Pros: "Everything really.They run the airline very smoothly and professionally from boarding to disembarking."
Cons: "They tempt you with so much food lol although some of the food wasnt too appealing.toilets very clean and seemed to stay that way throughout long 17hr flight.good leg room for a long legged guy like me.felt sorry for lady with two young children.She could have been allocated better seats."
Pros: "Service was great for such a long flight. It would be good to have like a snack bar for people to purchase snacks."
Cons: "The wedsite for Qatar could use some work."
Pros: "The cabin crew was fantastic and made the experience very positive."

Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."
Pros: "Polite crew, food was pretty good."
Cons: "Did not have the duty free item I pre-ordered. I asked the crew 4 times about it, four times because they said that they would check but they never got back to me to tell me that it was out of stock; until I pressed the issue."
Pros: "great service from flight attendnants."
Cons: "Old aircraft for flight from Doha to Nairobi, no personal entertainment etc."
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: "Plane was clean and modern. Staff was very courteous. An overall pleasant flight."
Pros: "Good movies, Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Food could be better."
Pros: "They do not provide hotel service even in a 11 hour layover saying the ticket is pomotional. If that is the case, why they sell tickets on promotion? Cheap mentality"
Pros: "Qatar airlines had the nicest planes I have ever been on, not to mention the most beautiful and clean airport."
Cons: "Everything was disappointing"
Cons: "Some crews are not accommodating."
Pros: "The aircraft from US to Qatar was upgraded and looked new. I love the new on demand video streaming, the touch controls are precise and better than previous version"
Cons: "I wish the airline was a bit more organized with boarding. I saw people with other zones boarding even when they were not called. The air hostess was friendly but I kinda got a feeling that she is doing me a huge favor when I asked for something more."
Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."
Pros: "I like the extra space between the seats that most of their airplanes had; the exception was, I think, the 767. The crew went above and beyond to take care of your needs and always had a smile on their faces."
Cons: "The check-in process, leaving Bangkok and leaving Doha, was horrible. Why do I have to wait until 3 hours before my flight departs to check-in and get my boarding pass? This made for long lines and took about 2.5 hours to get a boarding pass in Bangkok"
Pros: "The food was very good, I liked vegetarian options and my stomach doesn't hurt after the plane food as usual. I like the bathrooms clean and nice smelling soap. The crew was very attentive and eager to please their guest but consistent and insisting on the safety rules (belts buckled up and seats in upright position)"
Cons: "There wasn't many good options for entertainment. Only a couple new movies although I liked the TED talks. Also I liked the plane but I wish there were some foot steps and more comfortable head support on the seats. I didn't like also strange option for Golden members in economy seats to be able to "order" food before regular people. There were only 3 options and everyone had the same choice. So basically all that crew does is just asking which course gold members want an hour before serving. It seemed silly with no actual benefit."
Pros: "Had a great experience with this flight"
Cons: "horrible customer service at Doha Airport"
Pros: "Could have done without the awful sexist ads they play on in flight entertainment."
Cons: "In their Business Class they only had two shower room and they wait was 7 hours! I now totally dont trust Kayak and it's ratings. Qatar Airways sucks!"
Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."
Pros: "Comfort and service"
Cons: "Food breaks should be more"
Pros: "Stewardesses were more helpful on this flight than we had experienced on the previous flights. However their resources were limited. landed safely."
Cons: "Food on the four different flights (from DFW to Doha on to Cape Town and then from Johannesburg to Doha on to DWF) was not good at all. Timing of meals, food all below expected. One flight attendant trying to serve both meal and drink to each person took a lot of time. Snacks offerings were almost non-existent. Those of us traveling on three connecting flights with no time to purchase food nor water had a rough time of it. Would not fly Qatar nor connect in Doha again unless absolutely necessary."
Pros: "It was a good flight. I'd give it 4 of 5 stars."
Pros: "I was able to sit with my family - Our original seats were not together"
Cons: "Food choice"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Food was really bad might as well have junk food."
Cons: "I had booked the Amaya lounge for the 3,5 hours stop over. It cost $50+ and was so not worth it! Bad food and uncomfortable chairs plus it was really crowded! Next time I'll just go to a cafe! No seats at the gate when I got there. Slooow boarding!"
Cons: "A lot of plains departing from gates grouped together and we had to sit on the floor while wainting to board after we have been travelling for 18 hours. Obviously with no crowd control boarding was a mess."
Pros: "The Chicago flight was more than hour late so had to miss my cincinnati connection. Had to wait for 4 hours at the airport to catch my next flight- making the long journey even longer. No priority lounge access provided to make up for the delay. Qatar never getting my business again."
Cons: "I had to ask for wine to 3 different hostess's"
Cons: "Expect more then OK from Qatar."
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Easy booking of flight"
Cons: "The gate changed in a Dubai without proper announcement, Ground staff should have visited the passengers waiting in the gate waiting area that was printed on boat pass and inform them to new gate. Instead they charged the passengers with no show fees and delayed departure for another 12 hours."
Cons: "Better inflight entertainment"
Pros: "Checking-in was super simple, and speedy. All the staff I had contact with were very polite and professional"
Cons: "I had exhausted the entertainment system before I finished my first leg of the outbound journey."

Cons: "Can’t decribe but EK now falling in business while other airlines will take adavantage of ek staff issues which I can’t decribe"
Pros: "Liked everything esp the luxurious interior& the comfort of the business class"
Pros: "I had a fast and easy check-in at Denpasar airport. In flight service by cabin crew was very good, as I normally get in the business class at Emirates. Flight left Denpasar on time and arrived in Auckland some 30 mins early, which was nice. Enjoyed a late dinner - the mie goreng ayam was particularly tasty!"
Cons: "In the past on overnight flights Emirates I have received a pyjama set in the Business Class, which made it very comfortable to sleep. But this time this was not given, so I had to sleep in my day-wear, which was a bit uncomformtable."
Pros: "Obviously Biz Class is a great proposition for a flight of this length and once again the experience was a good one. Staff are always friendly and very attentive."
Cons: "We are not big eaters but when you leave at 10am then a lunch and breakfast is a bit of a stretch and even with light snack options we found ourselves hungry. Breakfast was not too flash"
Pros: "The crews"
Cons: "The wifi is bad the food is bad im in business class"
Pros: "All of the above"
Cons: "Nothing that i didn't like"
Pros: "The departure and return flight time, for the price I paid, I felt like I was in more than an economy flight. The meal, the baggage quota, the entertainment. The time flew because by the time the movie had finished, we were starting to descend. I will always look for this flight with Emirates. There is no other flight in comparison, in what you get for your Buck. I believe that other Airlines, ie., Qantas, Virgin Aust, both give you a flight and service, for nearly the same fare but you only get 7kg luggage, no meal just the basic entitlement, tea/coffe/water with a biscuit or something like that and NO ENTERTAINMENT, NO COMPARISON!!!!"
Pros: "Everything was good especially the spacious seats and food"
Pros: "Footrest would be good for a long haul flight."
Cons: "Noise of serving some people dinner in middle of night interfered with sleep. Deep dip South meant no internet for much of the flight lots of noise and inconvenience trying to fix Tvnz for (rude) lady in front"

Pros: "Really liked the long journey. Was a bit nervous given the 15 hour flight but was pleasantly surprised. Service was good as well."
Cons: "The crew were really young and not very talkative."
Pros: "The plane was spacious and we had really good seats , next to the toilet and wall in front of us. Super, as we were traveling with a toddler and he was able to sit on the floor in front of us and play with his toys. Food came out promptly and was tasty. Loved the goodies for the kids, little blanket and scotch pad."
Cons: "The delay in boarding! It’s hard work when traveling with a toddler."
Pros: "Good facilities, food and entertaniment. Seat comfort not so good."
Pros: "The service, food and boarding were all excellent. It brought back the joy of flying like what used to know in the 80s."
Pros: "The food was good and the service was great. I also had a great seat in the front row."
Cons: "We were delayed by over 2 hours We had no where to park when we landed so we had to wait for buses to take us toche terminal There was no new and exciting movies that excited me"
Pros: "Extremely quiet plane since they placed people in front of the half empty plane. Great plane food and internet access, limited to text but still incredibly useful to text people from the air."
Pros: "On time, very helpful crew and overall experience was fine"
Cons: "Food was not upto the mark and one always expects something better from an Airline like Emirates"
Cons: "I checked in online, but when I went to drop my bags there was about a 20 min delay. the agent needed to make 2 phone calls and conference with 2 supervisors. All this without letting me know what was going on."

Pros: "Great entertainment system. Lots of leg room best airline"

Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Plane was the old type and not the new one that I got when flying out. Still the seats were comfy and reclined. Also the entertainment system has been updated and was brilliant."
Cons: "The food could have been in more regular intervals. I was very hungry by the time we got the turkey sandwich and chock chip cookie."
Pros: "Check-in was efficient and staff were extremely helpful. Flight itself was comfortable, food was actually tasty, and in-flight entertainment was great. Overall an amazing experience compared to US carriers."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit disorganized."
Pros: "I enjoyed my first time flying with Emirates from Australia to New Zealand The checking in was quick, easy and the staff were friendly. The crew were polite, and friendly with excellent customer service. Refreshments and Entertainment were first class. I will be flying Emirates from now on."
Pros: "Up to date movies"
Cons: "The boarding in riyadh airport was crowded because it included all economy class travelersat once, it should start from A category till the last group. This should be rectified."
Pros: "everything from service, food, to entertainment. Keep up the good work."
Cons: "Seats were a bit small, if I had more room it will be perfect."
Pros: "Comfortable cabin, attentive crew, if somewhat aloof. Food okay, but better than a 2 ounce package of salty pretzel mix for $3! All in all, quite good."

Pros: "everything was very good we had such a great time"

Pros: "Good seat size and space, very comfortable. Excellent entertainment."

Cons: "Confusion with wrong menus being handed out - on 2 flights!"
Pros: "Crew were lovely"
Cons: "Extremely overweight passenger next to me. It was awful, her body was in contact with me the entire flight. The most uncomfortable, hot, smelly, awkward flight Ive ever experienced. Its time you charge for 2 seats for people that are the size of 2 people. Not fair to other passengers to have to be so inconvenienced and extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Started my Movie on the Ground before takeoff"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and there was absolutely no announcement with everyone lined up at the scheduled departure time. Communication on the delay was non existent. There was one announcement made 10minutes after boarding was suppose to commence to say the boarding will be delayed. No details as to why, approximate time."
Pros: "A380 is so quiet and smooth. Nice to be up the front of the plane, albeit on the lower floor in economy."
"Very bad thanks"
"They didn’t allow me to fly"
Pros: "The flight was on time. Food was reasonable."
Cons: "A bit more leg-room and there is some scope for improvement in the food. Also, the entertainement could have more south Indian content and also allow to access entertainement for more time."
Cons: "The food was of very poor quality and no alternatives. Went hungry the entire flight."
Pros: "Plane was clean especially bathroom, chairs were comfy, good entertainment options"
Cons: "It took forever to check in and board. Colombo airport is a bit disorganized. Vegetarian meal was 2 types of pasta no vegetables"
Pros: "Overall service"
Cons: "I had to check in my cabin bag"
Pros: "Only process of boarding."
Cons: "Everything else was not close to other comparative airlines. Food was horrible. Just FYI, cottage cheese is not the only food for Asian vegetarians. There actually are many other options. Not enough options for entertainment."
Pros: "Not much - perhaps that we had booked the last row and only had two seats together"
Cons: "The seats were minuscule...the depth was narrower than when Id previously used different airlines. The space between rows was also compromised. I think that the Dreamliner is even more streamlined with less space so they can put more passengers on! The toilet kept flushing when seated on it! The food was repetitive - ordered Asian Veg and got almost the same food for 3 meals. The dessert was exactly the same 1 piece of melon and 2 cubes pineapple. The male crew member did not want to be there. He grunted at the passengers. He was annoyed and when clearing food trays dropped it and aI wore custard all over me and the armrest of my seat. Fortunately I had a blanket covering me so it all landed on that. He was more upset that it also splattered him."
Cons: "الملاحين غير متعاونيين ويهددون The crew so bad"
Pros: "Fast track"
Pros: "The movie selection was decent"
Cons: "They failed to informed me that passangers have to report to the gate one full hour before direct flights to the US from Abu-Dhabi in order to clear US customs and border security which happens there prior to your flight (which is the only place in the world that this happens.) I arrived at the Airport 2.5 hours before my flight and reported to my gate 45 minutes before my flight and was not allowed through. They then were extremely rude to me when I was in the process of finding a new connection and made me buy a brand new ticket for the following morning as the penalties for rescheduling would cost more than buying a new ticket which was 1200 USD!! They insisted that this warning was on their web site and would have been on my ticket had I got it from their website. Since I purchased my ticket from Kayak.com, that was my own problem. They then showed me a warning label on the baggage claim slip that they gave me at check in but this was only in Arabic with NO ENGLISH translation provided. More importantly the representative who checked me in to my flight never told me about needing to be at the gate 1 hr before the flight. Throughout this whole process they were unapologetic, unsympathetic and rude. I met two other people that same day who had the same problem one of these passangers arrived at the gate 1.5 hrs before her flight and still could not get to her flight in time because of the inefficient customs and immigration process that the Emarati's have in place in an attempt to mimic our process in the US. This is a very bad policy which only Etihad does. If you fly through Dubai with Emirates they do not require this nonsense. The Etihad staff were rude, unhelpful, unapologetic and inefficient. Never fly from Abu-Dhabi to the US with Etihad. On the flight, as the plane came to a stop at the end of the runway but still needed to taxi in to the gate, people started getting up. Instead of calmly explaining to people what was going on, one of the stewardesses waved it off and said well when we start moving again or if something happened they will just DIE then! This was not the only occasion I was disgusted by the staff. I woke up on the flight and couldn't find my glasses and the response of one of the stewardesses was "can you ask someone else to help you, I am on my way to take a nap and if I stop to help you I want get my full rest." This airline is one of the worst in the world if not the worst. I will never fly with them again and I am considering sending these stories to a NEWS network to raise awareness on this issue. Their staff don't care. They seem to be overworked and burned out. They only get one day off when flying to New York and back when by law they are required two. This shows that they are abusive to their staff which then leads their staff to have have horrible customer service."
Pros: "Etihad is always my first choice in aircraft, in-flight service and ground staff. I've flown them all, and Etihad is a best-in-class..."
Cons: "Delay of 2 hours in taking g off. We were all about n the plane. Not enough explanation given for this"
Pros: "Multiple delays which was due to poor management on the airlines side"
Cons: "Food was awful. There was no other choice than Paneer the indian food."
Pros: "Crew were awesome, food was amazing"

Cons: "Seating was not so comfortable"
Cons: "People sitting in wrong seats and queue jumping"
Pros: "On time. Plane was clean. Security clearance was good."
Cons: "Food quantity and quality dropped to zero. Absolutely disappointed. I had travelled with etihad before. But this time I feel like not to travel with them again. In a 14 hour flight hardly one meal with 10 hour gap. Imagine if some one traveling with diabetic needs"
Pros: "Super short, but crowded flight."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, greeted us with a smile, and were there to help when needed."
Cons: "The food was bad. Requested for Asian Vegetarian Meal on Etihad website but was served the vegetarian option. I also heard a passenger complaining that she requested for a vegetarian food but was given a meal with chicken."
Pros: "Very professional crew and comfortable flight in the A380."
Cons: "There were no seating arrangements at the Gate 61 at Abu Dhabi Airport for the passengers. The pax had to sit on the floor or staircases till it was time for the flight."

Pros: "On time as scheduled. ground staff were very very polite and efficient ."
Cons: "I have flown in Cathay , Singapore , KLM . lufthansa as I go to Calcutta every year for last 25 years . Never had a 16 and half hrs flt with only one full meal . It should be 3 full meals. Both ways had totally unsophisticated cabin crews . Needs education and training . A basic term like scotch on the rocks needed four explanations . No clue about beer whatsoever . OK for Saudia not for gulf countries. Village girls in an uniform."
Pros: "abu dubai airport transit area"
Cons: "nothing bad that i could found"
Pros: "The entertainment system was top notch and the plane was beautiful. Everything was comfortable and nice."
Cons: "We had a huge delay for security purposes. Which is OK, I am not giving mediocre ratings on that front. But instead because throughout the many, many hours that we were waiting for the plane to be rechecked, we were not offered even water. Throughout the waiting, it was the middle of the night and a lot of the food shops in the airport were not open. The crew knew that we were going to be waiting in the security area for many hours, even peanuts and water bottles would have been welcomed after the six hour delay."
Cons: "non-terminal gate (bus ride) boarding;"
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: "The seat did not reclined. My wife was pregnant 6 months with twins and needed to recline the seat. I think I would reconsider booking with Etihad in the future."
Pros: "They provide the hotel in Abu Dhabi ."
Cons: "The food was horrible. kids mile request was ignored."
Pros: "The service was great."
Cons: "The food was not up to the standard"
Pros: "I've flown more than 9 different airways on international flights; Etihad has probably the best economy seats and in flight entertainment with large movie collection."
Cons: "Etihad overbooked me along with more than a dozen other passengers on a 14-hour international flight. Apparently Etihad decides on who gets left behind. Etihad's "Transit Travelers" service is one of the WORST customer service desks I've ever been to. I waited in line for 2 hours. Passengers were urging to be served so they can make it to their connecting flights not knowing they have been already selected not to board those plains. Voices were raised and demands were made to speak to the supervisor. It was chaos. I made it to the agent shortly after the gate to my flight had opened. I was shocked by how the agent lacked empathy when he informed me I won't make it to the connecting flight because it had been overbooked. Not an apology or even sir! I was forced to be rerouted which stretches my 25-hour trip to 33 hours. Then the connecting flight gets delayed more than an hour resulting in missing the second connecting flight. Now my trip has become a 41-hour trip, I missed a day of work that's worth more than double the value of the voucher Etihad gave me and lost one day of unscheduled vacation. Etihad even damages my bag that had servived more than 10 flights. I will never fly Etihad and strongly recommend against flying with Etihad."
Pros: "Courtesy, hospitality, staff's approach"
Cons: "Improve toilet facility and provide little more legroom between seats. Services inside the aircraft wS wonderful! You have a bunch of kind people!"
Pros: "Lots of legroom!"
Pros: "The micro-suites in business class provided ample room and privacy for a good, long sleep. The 11 hour flight passed by so quickly."
Pros: "leg rooms are good from Chennai to Abu Dhabi and in flight service was good"
Pros: "I thought that the crew working the flight from Abu Dhabi to Doha, was especially efficient, There is so little time to do all the things that they have to do, They however seem to do it well, and at the same time make it look easy."
Cons: "I do not like having to take a bus to and fro the terminal in Abu Dhabi. Especially when the connections are short."
Pros: "Great Headrest Neck Pillow Comfy Headphones Large Toilets"
Cons: "We stayed in the bus for 40 minutes before going for our flight, our luggagesite didn't come, they suppose to send our luggagesite to the hotel they didn't and are making us to go to the airport to pick them up,overall I had a very bad experience with Etihad airline."
"Canceled our flight and didn’t notify us Terrible customer service"
Cons: "Nothing!!! It was a great flight!!!"
Pros: "Very comfy seats."
Cons: "The flight was good, however I was not able to check in online due to British airways website issues. The entertainment touch screen is not working properly,needs some maintenance."
Cons: "Seat 26 beside exit but cold air passing through the door/fuselage made the overnight flight very cold and uncomfortable. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Nothing British airways was fine"
Cons: "Your website messed up and booked my flight for the wrong month. I booked sept 20 2019 and your site errored out. Eventually it booked the flight but apparently it was for oct 20, 2019 and I couldn’t get a refund because it was through kayak not British airways. I’m never using kayak ever again"
Cons: "Overbooked flights led to a missed connection resulting in a 12 hour layover"
Pros: "The Check in LADY was amazing"
Cons: "On the flight they wouldn't offer me alcohol, even though the lady next to me had a mimosa?"
Pros: "- relatively new plane, but honestly that's it..."
Cons: "It was a 4+ hours trip and here is what they don't offer: - no entertainment system and no wifi - all drinks for purchase (even water) - seat very tight and uncomfortable (plus, if you want to select your seat you need to pay) - cannot recline seat Here is their offer: high prices."
Cons: "More legroom."
Cons: "Club World is a super dated product. The tech is old and you are uncomfortably close to your neighbors. Also even when you buy a business class ticket British Airways makes you pay to reserve a seat in advance if you don’t have status with them. That feels over the top for a premium customer."
Pros: "Very friendly"
Pros: "The smooth journey in the sky"
Cons: "The fact that BA flights even morning ones are always behind schedule"
Pros: "Very accommodating flight crew, food and drinks very good, Entertainment excellent"

Cons: "Flight was delayed 30 mins to Dublin and flight was delayed 1 hour back to London. No free meals provided"
Pros: "The A-380 is outstanding. Seats are good, even in economy. Entertainment system is great."
Cons: "It seems to me that boarding by Groups has not helped in the least bit, instead it has made things slower. It's bad enough that the charges and limitations on luggage have forced everyone to try to board with their suitcases... The group system just makes things worse. I recommend BA compares itself to Lufthansa, Swiss, Qatar, Thai, whatever, and avoid trying to match Easyjet and American Airlines on service levels. Oh, and there is no excuse for long delays and cancellations in the most important airport in Europe. At least not for a simple dusting of snow."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "Did not get the seat according to the seatplan.I booked exit row seat 30..got 30..but exit row was 28."
Pros: "Ice cream. Nowday, on flight food is hard to find the tasty one."
Cons: "Sitting on the tarmac for to long...."
Cons: "After an 11 hours wait to connect my flight, they still managed to leave one of my bags behind. Not cool"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive, serving food, drinks and water very often"
Cons: "BA made me place my laptop and Ipad in the checked bag, preventing me from working on my computer for the next 20+ hours until my final destinations. Ridiculous policy! Very rude immigration and security people at Riyadh, I realize this is not BA's fault, but it was very annoying. Second level search of my carry-on bags at the gate very invasive procedure."
Pros: "Vegetarian food options! Crew, especially Kiaren, was lovely- polite and attentive, and it was a very bumpy flight, so they had to work harder than usual."
Pros: "The crew was really nice overall and the entertainment system was adequate. The main meal was decent too."
Cons: "The flight was late (I was warned online but there was denial at the airport and gate) and further delayed in flight so I missed my connection. I didn't like the pods in business class. I had a forward facing seat at least, which are all by the aisles. They seemed narrow. I didn't sleep (never do). The breakfast was a bit lame. Getting into buses from the plane IS lame. It took a while to get to the terminal."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "As always, a great flight."
Cons: "Nothing I can think of."
Pros: "So nice to be able to lie down fir the long distances. The food was quite good for airplane fare."
Cons: "Where do they get these movies? Surely there are good movies that are a few years old they could offer."
Pros: "Nothing really exceptional"
Cons: "Flying frequently with Emirates and Saudia rises your standards! seats, privacy, food, service on British airways are way behined!"
Pros: "The cabin crew were exceptional. One flight attendant in parifular was extremely helpful to us in helping place our carry on luggage in the overhead compartment. I did not get his name but he told me he was from Spain."
Cons: "- Landing cards were only distributed 20 minutes before arrival. The seat belt sign was already on. So, I could not use the food tray to fill out the cards. I tried to use the magazine to put under the landing card, but there was some turbulence and I could not fill out the cards n the plane. Cards should be passed to passengers an hour after Akef off. - no gifts given to kids like small games or coloring crayons to keep them busy. - food took hours to serve and was not comparable to BA's image. - the water pressure in the toilet's wash basin was too strong and was splashing all over my cloths."
Pros: "Plane ldeparted and landed on time. Plane was nicer than expected but not the same quality as Airbus 320"
Cons: "Immigration was severely understaffed for number of people waiting Took an hour to process 50 people. Crew member unhappy by seat swap as had special meal request. Had moved only one seat to the left to help other passenger out."
Pros: "Entrees were OK"
Cons: "Not nearly enough snacks. They were pretty much out in business class half way through the flight"
Cons: "Entertainment selection was poor. Also breakfast was bland"
Cons: "Wasn't any food left couldn't use cash ,couldn't use American credit card I received water only after we almost missed our plane because 3 times baggage layer belt broke down, I was hungry and wanted a cocktail or soda ."
Pros: "Very full flight but all went efficiently and smoothly. Staff excellent as usual."
Cons: "Nothing I can think of."
Pros: "The pilot was gentle landing the pane"
Cons: "No complimentary anything, not even water"
Pros: "I liked everything! Free drinks, movies on demand on the seat-back screen on the seat in front of you... comfortable seats. I would definitely fly BA again!! (The American Airlines return flight was a bit less desirable in all categories. Comparatively, BA was awesome!)."
Cons: "Not a thing!"
Pros: "Athens to London no complementary drinks or snacks on a FOUR hour flight."
Pros: "nice plane and seats left on time"
Cons: "no water or coffee offered unless you paid for food"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful , the seats very comfortable , breakfast very reach I felt my self booking first class not economy It is the best trip"
Pros: "the plane was comfortable even when full, although there are only two toilets for over 200 people in coach which makes it difficult sometimes"
Cons: "I used to live in London in the past, and commute with BA routinely, without any considerable issues. With this in mind, I booked this flight through the american site as I now live in the US. Big mistake. Even though I'm still a BA member and I checked in 24 hours prior to departure on the minute, I had no way of choosing a seat, in fact I had to pay to change my assigned emergency exit aisle seat. Secondly, there was a 5,5 hour delay, due to fog, which affected BA but not Easyjet or Aegean flying the same route at the same time, leaving me looking at all the other passengers taking off while I waited at the airport without any notice from my company. This resulted in me getting a debilitating migraine, for which I had to request painkillers on the plane. For anyone who hasn't done this before, despite how helpful the staff are, there's always "procedure" to be followed and papers to be signed before obtaining tylenol. Finally, when I contacted BA customer service to request a refund for this trip, considering if I had booked with any other airline I wouldn't have gone through all that, I was told it was my fault for not carrying painkillers and they "absolutely do not reimburse" such situations involving the weather. All in all, this was the last BA flight I will ever book and I am happy to go back to the US where customer service has an actual meaning and passenger wellbeing is always a priority."
Pros: "Great customer service"
Cons: "One of BA system was down which did delay us"
Pros: "Arrived early and smooth flight !!!!"
Cons: "Service was good a quick flight ."
Cons: "Damaged suitcase"
Pros: "As a first time flight using BA, I was very impressed, and felt I received good value for money."
Cons: "I did not like the policy of paying to assign yourself a seat ($51 per seat) unless you do it online 24 hours prior to your flight - which I chose to do. I understand in the current business climate of paying for better seats, but nickle and diming plain Jane economy seats is unacceptable."
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "Same seats and legroom as in coach. Differed from coach only in that a tray occupied the middle seat rather than a person."
Cons: "They lost my luggage!!!"
Pros: "The crew s oustanding. They were courteous, helpful, very professional and made the flying experience a pleasure for my family. With respect to the Miami ticket agents, there are 3 people I want to highlight for excellent service. Denise, who courteously accommodated our family and rescheduled our flight as needed, another young lady who checked us in. She was sensitive to our party of 5 and was extremely pleasant. The check in process was chaotic at best and she helped make it a pleasant experience. The person is Diane, the manager at the Miami airport. She helped bring order to a completely disorganized check in process and ended up personally escorting us through security toe sure that we made our flight on time. Diane is an excellent leader."
Cons: "The check in process was completely disorganized, due to a cancelled flight from Miami to Heathrow the night before. And there were 3 scheduled flights already that people were checking in for as well. There had to have been at least 600+ people in line to check in, plus those from the night before. The Miami airport doesn't have kiosks for passengers to easily check in and bag drop, which doesn't make sense in such a large and busy international airport. That would have made a huge difference in this case. Also, we paid for our seats to select them prior to 24 hours and we ended up not sitting together."
