After take off, I retrieved my purse & carry on to get my glasses and purse. The flight attendant gave my bin space away to someone..."

Cons: "Air port does not have automatic internet connection We were there for 8 hours with no internet because we had no international roaming to receive the PIN via SMS. The four PINS generated by the counter staff did not work. We all took turn to try to no avail. by then we have walked too far from the counter we could not be bother going back. No airport that I've been to had poor internet service connection like this airport, yet it is supposed to be THE WORLD'S NUMBER ONE AIRLINE. We boarded at 11.30pm, last time we flew with them they gave us supper. Last night they gave us only water. We went to sleep hungry till the morning. Since when they started to operate like those cheap airlines that you have to pay for your food? And the night package did not have eye mask.... how could we sleep... ? Singapore airline could learn from Qtar. Very very disappointed."

Pros: "Modern Aircraft , good seat ,Crew friendliness"
Pros: "The A380 is an amazing plane. The flight was smooth and the engine sounds were fairly low."
Cons: "Waiting on line to check in was more than a half hour although there were probably only 10 people ahead of me. Got a hard time on the weight of my carry-on being more than 7kg although I had to point out that my ticket allowed me two bags that were 23kg each - I had nothing to check. Eventually, when I pointed out that I could wear enough of the clothes from the carry on, they agreed to let me take it on. On board, the service was cold, bland and infrequent. The entertainment system lost sound perhaps 20 minutes into the flight."
Pros: "The service crew served us well. They are friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Too many Indian movies"
Pros: "Crew, cabin and food."
Cons: "Lack of entertainment console at each seat"
Pros: "Amazing service and comfortable lay flat bed"
Pros: "Can't think of. We have been using Singapore Air for years and they were good. However, our recent few flights with them have been disappointing (hence the need for this review) - there's nothing to be happy about."
Cons: "Writing on behalf of my wife. All staff that she met have sour face, perhaps to signal the passengers not to approach them? True enough, the cabin crew did not help her to place her bag in the luggage compartment; the cabin crew did not serve water when requested, and on second attempt, the cabin crew told her to request at the ground. The cabin crews she has encountered clearly expressed their unwillingness to serve with their face and action. Is this the new direction of Singaore Air? The entertainment system requires installation of an app, hence is practically useless since we do not have the app preinstalled in our device."
Pros: "Friendly, attentive crew. Clean plane."
Cons: "Cramp set space. Lack of movie choices, not all had closed caption."
Pros: "Due to my ACLS training yesterday, I was not so well since morning and I took medicine in the morning and I forgot to stand by one more course of medicine .

Thank you so much crews members of silk air flight MI518 from Singapore to Yangon ."

No new movies unlike on the way there :( dont really like being woken up for meals though, would be nice if they left a note to get a meal from them once ive gotten up. Coz i was trying to sleep so i dont get jetlagged back in sg. Which i did unfortunately :( not jetlag when i arrived in rome though :)"
Pros: "Excellent crew service and entertainment."
Pros: "Did not enjoy the vegetarian menu -cold noodles not appealing. Alcoholic drinks very hard to obtain .. orders taken but not received. Service was friendly though"

Cons: "Other Crew woman"
Cons: "Delays boarding meant we were almost 30 mins late arriving in Wellington. Cramped seats on Qantas 737 plane"
Cons: "Requested an aisle seat at the front or an emergency seat and got neither. I could hardly move my long legs. That the flight was long did not help matters. I was sandwiched between two other travelers on a three-seater arrangement. Again, is it just on flights to Kenya or other African countries that passengers DO NOT receive the travel pouch?"
Pros: "The staff was quite helpful in many ways and checking in was easy with online booking. For an economy flight, the quality of the food was good."

Pros: "It would be useful if Emirates would allow us to reserve the adjoining seat of the 3 (on less than full flights) so that we can have the extra space."

Pros: "the food"
Pros: "Staff did their best and were polite but ultimately had no solution for the issue"
Cons: "I was unable to get an aisle seat therefore I was stuck in an middle seat. I am rather tall and the man on the window seat was morbidly obese and half of him was sitting on top of me for most of the flight. He also sweated all over me, snoredand snorted for the whole flight. I spent much of the flight standing and now have terrible leg oedema. It was the most uncomfortable flight I've ever been on. the flight was full so there were no reseating options apparently. It was extremely unpleasant."
Pros: "Lots of leg room in a very comfy seat. Great cabin service from friendly and helpful cabin staff. Great entertainment options. Thankyou"
Pros: "Crew were very competent and nice."
Cons: "There was not enough overhead space for my carryon bag, so had to go further back in the plane to find space, this caused a problem when disembarking."
Pros: "The entertainment options are excellent and legspace on the aircraft is good."
Cons: "For a 14 hour flight there are no water bottles provided. You need more than the couple of cups of water provided on the flight, and it is not practical to keep on asking for more water from the crew. Quality of food (Asian veg) was not very good."
Pros: "I enjoyed excellent service of this airline"
Cons: "Our Emirates flight was delayed for 21 hours. They didn't have enough non-vegetarian meals, we were forced to eat vegetarian breakfast and lunch throughout our inbound flight."
Pros: "In flight staff were great, very industrious, and very friendly. In-flight entertainment was the best I have come across on an economy seat."
Cons: "My check-in experience was concerning. I had an onward flight to Manila, but no onward flight from there. The airline policy had me not allowed to check in for my flight because of this. I narrowly avoided missing my flight by booking another flight just in time."

Pros: "Very comfortable pod."

Cons: "They collect headsets too early."
"Flight was very good. Seats are comfortable and food and entertainment were very good. Crew is attentive and responsive."
Pros: "Turkish Air’s boarding is very good and their food and entertainment is good"
Cons: "I have flown many international miles and many with Turkish Air. I have seen them go backwards as an airline these past 9 years. No more Premium Economy and very small seats, no more hot towels b4 takeoff, unbearably hot cabins, no good snacks on long flights, etc."
Pros: "I had a nice exit row seat and the plane had a good selection of entertainment."
Cons: "flights were delayed significantly and in Tbilisi the staff did not show up until about 10 minutes before the plane was supposed to depart. Crew had not been inside the new airport and could not answer questions about transfers."
Pros: "That I arrived at my destination alive."
Cons: "Every staff person we had contact with made us feel as though we were not a priority in any way. We were constantly given misinformation. Our flight was two hours out when it was returned to our departure city due to a passenger health issue. It was not properly explained to us and we were in no way compensated for the inconvenience. Once back at our departure city (Miami) we sat there for an hour or more. They chose to feed us during that delay. Due to this we missed our connecting flight in Istanbul to Rome. This also caused us to miss our transportation from Rome to Compania, Italy. We were told by airline staff on the plane that we would be put up in a hotel over night. When we arrived at the terminal we had no idea where we should go or who we should see. Every representative we spoke to told us to go somewhere else. Truth is it felt like no one we spoke to knew what to tell us or really cared at all. One representative told us we were not entitled to overnight accommodations. We insisted we were told we were and it literally took hours on the ground to straighten the problem out and get to a hotel. By then it was so late that we only got a couple hours of sleep and had to be back at the airport for our next flight. The second flight from Istanbul to Naples, Italy was better. I do not think I would use this airline again. My entire party got an overall sense that people were untrained and lacking in any form of customer service. Not the flight attendants but all the people we had to deal with on the ground. My age plus health issues and walking problems made everything more difficult. We were sent al over the massive airlines terminal with all our carry on luggage only to find when we got to where we were going we had been sent to the wrong place. On top of all this each of us had to pay a VISA fee to get out of the terminal and to the hotel. Just a total nightmare. Prior to taking this flight I contacted Turkish Airlines and spoke to a customer service person and explained that I needed to take with me a small portable oxygen concentrator that I would need to use while in Italy. I needed to know the procedure for bringing that equipment on the airline. I was told that although he could not answer that question He would pass it on to his supervisors and I would receive an answer via email prior to my flight. I never received a response and as a result did not have my needed oxygen while abroad."
Pros: "Pretty comfy flight"
Cons: "The screens didn't work to watch movie or to see the flight time and distance"

Pros: "Everything good"
Cons: "All good"

The food was really decent for airplane food & they provided free alcohol beer or wine with both of the 2 meals. Each seat had a usb spot to charge your phone & a nice screen for watching movies & tv shows. Wish there were more movie & tv show options, only suggestion."
Cons: "The woman at the Rome airport turkish airlines counter scolded us for being a little late to arrive to the airport. She was very rude to say the least."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and an onboard meal was provided."
Cons: "We checked in online the day before with seats together and the morning getting our boarding pass they changed the plane and 1 of our seats was changed to across the plane. Luckily the lady was able to get a pair seats sitting us together."
Cons: "This has been a nightmare that is yet to end. After being delayed for two hours out of Rome to Istanbul and missing our connection to Jeddah with hundreds of other stranded passengers from the other flights, Turkish Airlines incompetent handling had us wait in multiple ques for more than five hours only to provide us a hotel for two hours and then shuttle back to a flight 12 hours later! I have yet to hear an explanation from anyone about what happened or a simple sorry for your trouble. This is operational incompetence at full display. Never Again!"

Pros: "The seats in economy were very comfortable, food was excellent (and surprising given it was a short flight), crew was friendly and accommodating, entertainment selection was excellent"

For long international flights, the airline still provides disposable slippers, toothbrush, and eye cover for every passenger 3. Crew members on board were friendly and service oriented"
Cons: "1. Poor support for passengers with international transfers. We took Turkish airline to fly from Rome to San Francisco with an overnight stopover in Istanbul. The airline promised overnight stay and transportation. When we got into Istanbul airport after 11:00pm as scheduled, there was no support from the airline. Different airline staff provided different answers. Very confusing. The on-site transfer desk support was unfriendly and not helpful. 2. Tight seat configurations for international flights. For our 13-hour flights, the seats were not comfortable."

Pros: "The food, the flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "The staff were helpful, the food was it's usual high quality and it was possible to grab a a snack or drink during flight if you wanted one without bothering the flight crew"
Cons: "I found the announcements at the start of the flight a little annoying as they were timed to continually interrupt the films I'd chosen, but I prefer that to not being able to start a film while taxiing."
Pros: "Flight timing and the crew were excellent"
Pros: "great food"
Pros: "The food was great compared to some companies. Lots of great movies to watch, good music options."
Cons: "Omg...the crew...the crew, as was in the past, and with the exception of 1 poor guy who was really trying his best, was RUDE and lacked finess. They would literally kick u in the hallway (while passing this hostess gave me a good knock on my foot and didn't turn around to apologize. ..she kept going). They will serve you food and throw the trays down on your table, talk over you to the other hostess in the other isle while serving you. Speak in the most condescending tone, especially, unfortunately to older folks or foreigners who had a hard time understanding. I mean....total chaos and, for someone who flies often both dom & intl, this has got to be the worst service received, and thought the price point is as juicy as pie, I still expect some level of class and great customer service. It's not worth it."
Pros: "Efficient and on time. Part of Star Alliance. Much better than any domestic USA or low cost European airline."
Cons: "Nothing negative"
Pros: "Crew was excellent: very attentive and polite. The food was actually good (and free), as were the beverages. The movie selection was much better than average, as well."
Cons: "Many passengers were extremely high-maintenance, but that's not necessarily the airline's fault."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "I am a vegetarian. I did forget to order vegetarian meal. When I said this at lunch time the response was "sorry, we do not have any extra vegetarian food." Not even attempting to see if they can substitute with any fruits, chocolates etc."
Pros: "Turkish delights on-board and relatively pleasant crew."
Cons: "Ok overall"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine, once I paid for it a second time!"
Cons: "We missed a connection on our flight out, so the airline decided to cancel our entire flight home! They didn't even notify us they were cancelling it. We found out the day before we were supposed to leave to go home, when we tried to check in online and couldn't. I spent hours of the last day of our vacation trying to figure out what was wrong, then searching for a rebooking a new flight. It cost us more than $1000 USD extra, just to get home. NOT the way we envisioned ending our vacation. I'll never use this airline again!"
Pros: "US airlines ought to take lessons on customer service and satisfaction!"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic. Ought to have better organization and identification for different boarding status .. A B C D etc."

Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful."

Pros: "The flight was one of the best I ever took, the crew was friendly and very helpful, the food was great, the seat comfort was ok and the entertainment was amazing. I'm going to use to go to Italy next time. Thank you"

Cons: "Entertaintmebt was poor, and quality of screen was bad"

Pros: "Seat upgrade in response to complaint"
Cons: "Etihad website did not allow check in and seat allocation until arrival at the airport. This meant that, despite having booked months before and making numerous attempts to complete web check in, my wife and I would have been placed in the centre two seats of a block of 4 seats. The check in process makes Ryanair look excellent!"
Cons: "Seat was damaged, not conformed and dirty, like it wasn’t cleand after previous flight. Pillows was used before us. Business calss should be nice"

Food is not so satisfactory."
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.

Pros: "Loved the inflight service and the airlines comfort."

Cons: "Food quality is not good"
Pros: "I loved everything about the airline and the service provided except for one detail. The staff was great and very concerned with all passengers and their safety."

Pros: "Timings r good"

Pros: "Nothing. Would never take this airline again. And would tell everyone to never take this airline."
Cons: "I checked in 10 hours early for my flight and no one told me that I was bumped out of my flight because they were overbooked until one hour before takeoff. Then a gate attendant had the nerve to ask me if I was Vip. When I said no, she said she couldn’t help me and I had to wait for the next flight which was the next day. When I complained to a manager, they let me through security to get on standby for the flight and I was the last one to get on the flight. Their service is awful!!"

Cons: "Customer service in Abu Dhabi was terrible. The flight itself was average at best. It was nothing like I expected. I will not fly Etihad again."
Cons: "Delay on flight from Bangkok."

Cons: "Food wasn't great."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food presentation was bad I didn't eat it."
Pros: "Wifi available throughout"
Pros: "Overall flight experience was good, but the ground staff need to be more real time responsive and should own responsibility."
Cons: "My baggage is still missing and no one is responding to number presented on the sheet in Chicago, very bad. Please get my baggage to me and be kind to the customers in aftermath of the services."
Pros: "Mostly punctual. Efficient staff service. Appropriate amount of food and drink served."
Cons: "On my journey to Abu Dhabi the flight departure was delayed by an hour. Otherwise it was efficient - and on my return journey. The seating is uncomfortable - lack of leg room. Tv monitors are a little dull so hard to see. Food isn't that nice."

Pros: "Very cramped seats"
Pros: "The crew are friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seats are way too small and cramped."
Pros: "Just average flight, nothing so special"
Cons: "the flight was so overbooked that I had to stand in the queue for an hour for check-in, All the overhead compartments were full and I could not put a small bag in it, the crew even did not bother to help me with it. Ultimately I had to stow it beneath the seat. The seats were so cramped"
Pros: "Beware of the etihad airport crew at Abu Dhabi. They are extremely inept. The gate agent lost my ID card needed to gain entry into a third country. Not only I had to miss my connecting fight from Abu Dhabi, was never put on another flight, but etihad also cancelled my return portion of the ticket all due to a mistake by their gate agent."
Cons: "Beware of the etihad airport crew at Abu Dhabi. They are extremely inept. The gate agent lost my ID card needed to gain entry into a third country. Not only I had to miss my connecting fight from Abu Dhabi, was never put on another flight, but etihad also cancelled my return portion of the ticket all due to a mistake by their gate agent."
Pros: "Lacking in Hosiptality"
Cons: "Lacking in Hosiptality"
Pros: "Flight was on time and even landed to JFK an hour early. Flight was not full. Hence, enjoyed free vacant seats to lay down. Landing was nice and smooth"
Cons: "Food was horrible. No desert provided. Juice was not natural. It was sugar added juices. USB port was not working to charge my smart phone."
Cons: "Food was okay..."
Pros: "Overall everything was excellent"
Pros: "Just my seat. Which has more leg space."
Cons: "Food and I had to call them numerous times to give me something to eat because I was starving. For such a long flight they only had pop corns for snack. I missed my first served meal because I was sleeping for second one they didn't bother to ask me. When I asked for it I was given a cold sandwich."
Pros: "Only the fare. Which was the cheapest on that day"
Cons: "Food Handling of checkin"
Pros: "Aircraft fleet and airport is good. Good infrastructure."
Cons: "The cabin crew is not at all courteous. When you start travelling in US, you realize how different the crew's attitude is. When you want to say no to the customer, atleast make an effort to accommodate the needs of the customer first. Minor requests made by the passengers should be accommodated. You just rudely say No. Learn something from American customer service!!"
Pros: "I had a stress free flight everything was handled right on time, made for a good vacation. Everyone was very helpful. I would recommend Etihad."
Pros: "Service food n flight intirier"
Pros: "I liked the fact my request to sit with my wife was successful and we both got exit rows. Staff were very professional and friendly."
Cons: "Check in took took long and it would be better if you could use more technology to speed up the process (e.g.) check in via email and check your bags before you get to the airport so you can just drop them off."
Cons: "They didn't let me change any seats. I wasn't able to select my own seat to begin with when checking in. When I told the crew that I had recently had a surgery, no one really made any effort to actually find me a better seat. They didn't even get back to me."
Cons: "It was standard domestic business class seat, not a pod. Also had 2 screaming kids. Windows were dirty so hard to see out."
Cons: "Rude staff"
Pros: "Friendly crew!"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Pros: "Pilot was informing us about the reason for slight delay. Can not comment on food or entertainment ."
Cons: "British Airways introduced boarding by groups Inspite of my plea for my husband who recently undergone heart surgery he had to stand and queu until our group number was allowed to enter the plane. We have been told very firmly by taciturn lady at Fumicino Rome that this are new rules nad they are to be obeyed! compassion is not forte in our experience of British Airways."
Cons: "My daughter and I were bumped off flight. We also had problems checking in. Luckily Alitalia were able to accommodate"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant enough"
Cons: "British airways is always delayed, I never make my connection, I had to be rescheduled on the way there and on the way home"
Cons: "They even charge for water, just like Easy Jet and the low price airlines. BA doesn’t accept US credit cards online, nor do they accept cash. The simple drink service takes forever. I feel sorry for the flight attendants who have to fill out paper credit card forms if you present an American credit card. It’s like we are back in the 1970s. Ridiculous. It’s a $45/bag charge to check your bag. That’s almost double the standard $25 for American carriers. May try to avoid BA in the future."
Pros: "That there was help from the beginning to the end of the flight."
Pros: "made up some time in the air so we werent as late as we were delayed."
Cons: "No TVs!! in 2018? on a large airplane? C'mon. Old plane with no-seatback entertainment. just tiny screens many rows up, on the bulkhead. Terrible. One offering for beverages then never saw the flight crew again. Flight delayed by close to an hour. even with making up time we landed late. big issue for me due to connections."
Cons: "Left late. Was told we would still arrive on time. Sat waiting for a gate to open which took all most 45 minutes. We had 12 minutes to depart, go through security and RUN to another terminal and navigate a foreign AirPort and run onto a BA plane that we were told would not wait for the numerous passengers trying to reach the plane. And then sat for over 30 minutes on the plane while the "luggage" was being loaded. Then was told our luggage never made it to our plane. Given both flights were BA I was totally disappointed for this short-term anxiety that was unnecessary."
Pros: "flight crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Appeared that there was some inconsistencies in what was allowed to be carried-on. When I checked in, my roller-bag suitcase carry-on was not allowed to be carried on and it made me scramble at the last minute to grab items I wanted for in-flight use. The odd thing was that the flight was less than half full and there was lots of storage space. Plus a young male was allowed to board with a very large duffel bag (larger than my roller), an over-sized skate board, and a personal backpack and a pillow."
Pros: "London to Chicago on British Airways was excellent. We were late for the scheduled flight due to a connection issue - but were able to just make boarding. Luggage did not make it. Crew and service was excellent on the Airbus B380."
Pros: "On time. Nice scenery. Cordial crew. All food costs extra. Completely full. Glad it was only 2 hrs."
Cons: "All food costs extra. Seats cost money (no thanks, I’ll stand). Every seat booked, so i suspect some didn’t make it."
Pros: "I recently had a difficult time returning to Italy and the part of the journey handled by BA was excellent. They were kind and helpful."
Pros: "British Airways may be one of my favorite companies I've flown so far. Counter check-in and baggage drop off was friendly and efficient, and was absolutely the easiest I've had in my recent two week travels (where I sadly used 5 different airlines for 7 different flights), if not my overall lifetime of traveling abroad. The crew was friendly, helpful and it was easy to ask them questions. For both the price and the ease of service I would absolutely recommend them again to anyone I know."
Cons: "I flew economy, and I truly miss the days where a drink was included in seats for your flight. But that is so common on all flights of late."
Cons: "I had to purchase a cup of coffee."
Pros: "The crew on the flight was pleasant."
Cons: "The flight was over an hour late off the ground and we’d held up in the air for another 1/2 hour. Connections missed, very disappointed."
Cons: "London was fogged in had had to wait 1:45 on the plane before it left, fortunately we had a 4 hour layover in London, so we didn’t loose our conection ."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, excellent reading material, easy boarding & deplaning, option to purchase tasty & healthy snacks."
Cons: "No complimentary beverages!! I was offered a plastic glass of tap water. Paying for alcoholic beverages appropriate, but providing basic beverage service seems an act of graciousness for choosing to fly this airline."
Pros: "Hillary Swank happened to be on our flight..."
Cons: "Like all of the flights we had with British Airways, it was delayed. Flight delays happen all of the time but the real issue was that there was very little information shared with us as to why, how long, etc. We ended up sitting on the tarmac for more than an hour without so much as an offer of water by the crew. When we did get into the air, it took the crew a full hour to reach all of the rows with refreshments, none of which (including water) were complimentary."
Cons: "It took FOREVER to get our boarding passes. We did wind up checking our bags, but there was no option to do self check and have boarding passes printed at a kiosk, so everyone had to go through the line and the line was incredibly slow. There were just as many lines for people who had checked in online and just needed to drop their bags - this made no sense to me! There should only have been one line for that and the rest should have been dedicated to getting the rest of the passengers checked in."
Pros: "Plane was good, Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Would only give us boarding passes to LHR, not to LAX so we had a short connection, a late plane and still had to stand in a customer service line in LHR to get boarding passes. Made the conncection but it was a long run through the airport."
Cons: "I paid money when I requested seat assignment online. I’m not sure what I paid for as our seats were standard."
Cons: "I find it hard to believe that BA requires passengers to purchase basic needs like water. That was a huge disappointment."
Pros: "The food and staff were great."
Pros: "The airline attendants were very nice and helpful. I had to stow my backpack in the overhead since I was sitting in a front seat with no underseat storage. The flight attendant was very helpful in finding a storage place for me near my seat since I was unable to find a place that wasn't towards the rear of the plane. I've always enjoyed flying with British Airways. Always first class service no matter where you sit."
Cons: "I have no complaints about my flight."
Cons: "I was sat in a row with two adults and one young child that was all over? I paid full price for my seat not to share it with a family of 3."
Pros: "Switch to Qatar Airlines"
Cons: "We were delayed getting out of Rome, making our connection a little stressful."
Pros: "Service levels were high and good humored as usual, cabin was clean and reasonably comfortable."
Cons: "Apart from still objecting to the principle of treating non-Business class customers like the budget airlines, the food selection on European flight leg was ok, but sales system is so slow and laborious that in future I'll probably buy in the departures terminal and carry on board."
Cons: "Crew was not helpful at the end of the flight when we had a very short turnaround time due to delay and my girlfriend had to run to catch the other flight and she has recently had hip surgery. The crew was asked 3 times for help and their response was "you will be fine". We were not fine also the security crew at Heathrow was incredibly slow and there were 3 standing around talking and one very slow very rude lady going through bags which caused us also to be delayed and have to run to catch connecting flight to SF just barely made it - totally unacceptable."
Pros: "Left late but arrived on time"
Cons: "Had to pay for water (unless you wanted bathroom water) and juice or coffee."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic, food and drinks were of a very decent standard."
Cons: "Boarding was in a cramped corner so a bit confusing, no enetertainment at all on a (very) old plane."
Cons: "The ground crew did not give timely updates about the flight delay, which was rather stressful, considering I had a short layover in London."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed in London 3 hours while we already boarded due to a dent on a door and need of repair. B/c of this missed connecting flight in LA and your airline did not replace us with a new flight or accommodation. Had to pay for own accommodation over night and new flight thru different airline NEXT morning."
Cons: "The only flight we have ever been on of two hours or more where there was no complimentary snack or beverage service---not even coffee or water!"
Pros: "Comfortable flight. Loved the free movies!"
Cons: "We races to get to the plane from connecting flight that was late getting in. Then we sat on the plane 2+ hours duew to tire needing replaced, then the air was not working so it was terribly hot and stuffy, then the movie system was not working. Wish we could have gotten off plane during delay. Long flight to begin with, sitting for 2 extra hours was not fun. With all that being said, I am glad they took care of the issues and that our safety was first. Once we got in the air, a very good flight!"
Pros: "Hard to say after they lost my luggage, cramped space, no leg room because of electronics box under seat, then the person in front of me decided to recline all the way back on a 12 hour flight. So I lost my luggage, and had some smelly stranger practically laying on my lap for 12 hours. Talk about insult to injury!"
Cons: "They forced me to check my bag, even before I boarded the plane and said there wouldn't be any room. Then they lost my bag. Worst thing I ever did was listen to the lady at the ticketing booth! Also, the way they do boarding is a total joke. All they care about is their first class passengers. For the rest, it's a free for all! Terrible, even Southwest has more organization! Sputhwest might not have assigned seating, but they're much more organized and significantly cheaper. How do you lose someone's luggage British Airways?!?!?!!!"
Cons: "We were asked to check in our luggage as there was not sufficient space in the cabin which obviously delayed our plans of getting a train to other location from the airport after lading as we had to collect the bags etc"
Pros: "Usual BA - professional service"
Cons: "I cannot believe you have to pay for your drinks now. The only thing which made BA one of the last remaining "experience" airlines has now made it become like a normal train journey. I'd prefer to pay 10 pounds more in my ticket and still have the impression my drinks, soft or not, are offered."
Cons: "I was surprised that I had to put some "crisps" on my credit card (and a bottle of water, despite being severely dehydrated for other reasons) - they can't throw a bag of peanuts our way anymore? Help a brotha out!"
Pros: "Better seats and space"
Cons: "New M&S menu, makes service too slow and the items are mediocre."
Pros: "Landed on time. Boarded via an air bridge (no bus)"
Cons: "BA have done away with food and replaced this with a packet of crisps or a biscuit and will soon be changing for food"
Cons: "I have both celiac and a mushroom allergy -- no meal option was proviided to accommodate both. Sure enough, my gluten-free meal contained mushrooms. (It's surprising to me that, since celiacs often have other food allergies/sensitivities, the meal contained a pretty common allergen.) Stuff happens sometimes, but it felt a bit as if the flight attendant felt inconvenienced by my inability to eat the meal. Also, usually disabled passengers are given the opportunity to pre-board -- the wheelchair didn't arrive until quite late, so I was one of the last people, if not the last, on the flight, something that makes getting settled a lot more difficult than when I've been allowed to pre-board. I realize that wheelchair attendants are employed by the airport, not the airline, but he gate agent seemed unconcerned about the fact that nobody had arrived to pick up wheelchair passengers despite the fact that everyone else was already boarding. Finally, the flight departed/arrived quite late, which meant that I had about 10 minutes to spend in the Heathrow Club World lounge before having to wait for a wheelcehair attendant to take me to my connecting flight."
Cons: "Our BA flight from Rome to Paris was operated by Vueling. Vueling staff in Rome lacked knowledge of whether or not our bags could be transferred properly to our BA connection and onto our home city. Our bags did not connect and arrived 2 days after we did. Vueling desks were extremely unorganized, staff were not helpful, and boarding the plane after 2 buses hauled the passengers far out onto the concourse was a nightmare. We love BA, but we will never again purchase a flight where Vueling is involved."
Pros: "The bad elements of this flight experience far outweigh anything that might have been acceptable."
Cons: "Our flight was plagued by issues which were both avoidable and unavoidable. Here is a list - * I was able to check-in online but my husband was not and kept receiving error messages (no big deal) * Upon arrival at the check-in counter, the line was incredibly long. I understand this happens but of the employees working, only 2 were checking in bags and 3 others were just standing there chatting and talking into walky talkies. * Flight from Rome to Heathrow was late for no apparent reason, landed 45 minutes prior to our connection flight. I inquired with our flight attendant about the potential to make boarding and he said they would let us know. We landed on the tarmac and had to be bussed to the terminal. Not once after we landed did the flight crew mention one word about connecting flights. Never have I had that experience in 44 years. Additionally, there was no direction regarding priority for boarding the busses. When we finally entered the terminal, an airline employee displayed a sign calling for passengers connecting on a flight to San Diego which was taking off just 10 minutes after ours to San Jose. A choice few of these folks were driven over to their boarding gate while many of us were left behind. * When we made it the recommended "Fastrack Express" the attendant informed us that we had already been cancelled out of our connecting flight to San Jose (this was 30 minutes before take off)! We were directed to go wait in line to re-book our flights. * After an hour in line we learned that the couple behind us had already been re-booked onto that evening flight to SJ, which would have been the next out. I wonder how that happens when you are further behind in line? After waiting 4.5 hours in line. We were told that and approximately 3 other convenient flights which would have been a possibility were no longer available since we had been made to wait for so long. There were no places to sit, no numbering system, we did not eat at all that day until 11pm and that was after waiting another 45 minutes to get our passports stamped and then stupid bus ride. *We were forced to miss hosting my best friend's baby shower the next morning. We were sent on an hour long bus trip to another airport in Gatwick to sleep in a hotel for 6 hours and then return bus trip back to Heathrow only to fly into an airport which is an hour away from our home as as opposed to 10 minutes. *Not once in all that time did a manager come out and let customers know the cause of the inconvenience. The window service to re-book was haughty and entitled, rather than thoughtful and efficient. I was insulted by the lack of customer service, the shoddy organization, communication and lack common sense. The only saving grace was that they booked us on a different airline for our return flight where we received decent service. We incurred extra charges due to the change in arrival location - all around failure on British Airways. Not happy at all."
Cons: "Our flight left two hours late causing us to miss the connection in London going to San Jose. We stood in line for 5 HOURS while British Airways tried to arrange for us and many, many others to get to their final destination."
Cons: "Had flight from Rome to L.A., with a stop in London. At Rome airport, had to wait 2.5 hours in the check-in line. Once at the counter, the lady tells me "don't worry you won't miss your flight, because it has been delayed 3 hours, but bad news is you will miss your connecting flight in London!" She says once you get to London, British Airways will put you in a hotel overnight and you can fly out the next day. We finally get to London Heathrow that night, and there is no one at the gate to help us. After walking to the third floor where their departures are (exhausted with two little kids), I find a BA employee. Asked her if she can put us in a hotel for the night, and she says there are no more hotel rooms available!! She tells me to go find a room myself and they will reimburse me up to 200.00 pounds a night, then hands me a brochure about my rights, and walks away. Shocked, I followed the other pissed off passengers to a hotel reservation agency on the first floor. After standing in another line for 0.5 hour, the guy reserved me a room with one bed at the Best Western for 305.00 pounds!! Now I am finally back home, and will see if I can get reimbursed by these cheapskates."
