The flight was almost full, and the airline was not able to seat the family together, even though we tried to check in online 24 hours before the flight. The food was much better than what is usually served on airlines, and the choice of entertainment was quite extensive.

Good experience on the whole

Since it was a long journey should have better service and address all comfort and concerns for passengers.

Wonderful. Thanks.

The staff uniform was clean and they were so friendly.

The staff was extremely attentive and did everything to make the flight comfortable. The atmosphere was relaxing.

Pros: "Everything normal as expected on an economy class nothing special."

Cons: "Qatar in Belgrade didn't tell me about alchocol bottle I bought in the Duty Free and that i could not go with it all the way to melbourne even bag was sealed and receipt was visible.

Boarding was so bad in Frankfurt to mumbai total chaos no directions no boarding order

Baggage never made it to Frankfurt so which sucks when taking a European vacation. Luggage showed up three days later.

Did not get seats reserved. 4 hour delay from austin to Grankfort. 6 hour delay from Grankfort to Crete. Food was not good. Check in agents not friendly.

Only reason I did bad on food and entertainment was because flight was a short flight.

Complaint about food. Business class. Lufthansa was out of three options that I requested. No effort was made to manage a viable option so I was given no main course by the gentleman who came to serve me. Very disappointing. Mrs.Livleen Kahlon Passenger Buisness class, Flt Frankfurt to Delhi . 8th of December 2021

Pros: "The crew were nice and the service very good. The layover was short."
Cons: "Our luggage was lost so we had to go back to the airport the day after. In economy class the Last 3 central rows or even more, have no carryon storage. We were stuck with our carryons for over 7 hours during the flight Montreal Munich. This is the case if you fly their new A350-390."
Pros: "The problem was with the booking, cancelled flights- under stable- but nobody willing to make it right. Flights still screwed up"
Cons: "Give some customer service to your paying customers. Don't make a bad situation worse. Practice a can do attitude. Very disappointed in customer service. Not the flight itself."

Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."
Pros: "Everything was great. Not a single downside. Easy to follow announcements on connection, punctual and nice aircraft."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "Waited in Luftansa line 9.5 hours to rebook flight after Munich airport shut down for 7 hours. Lufthansa totally unprepared for this situation. Understaffed and unhelpful with directions. Finally got to Los Angeles after 48 hours. Still haven’t gotten luggage 2 days later and no communication on when to expect it."
Cons: "A bass blasting private event at the airport near Lufthansa gate"
Cons: "It seems like my gluten free meal request did not go through. But I must admit it, It could also be my fault"

Pros: "Good plane and service"
Cons: "Ticket check in was unclear, apparently we had to verify our tickets at the gate but there was no sign or previous instruction from the check in counter. I waited through the boarding line only to be told to first verify my ticket. My bags were lost on the Madrid to frankfurt flight, the first part. Unacceptable, if the airline can not schedule flights at their own hub that guarantee swift transfer it us pathetic."
Pros: "Crew was great. I was traveling with infant and they kept us kept us comfortable"
Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. 11 hour flight. Boring. No seat change available. No reading light, as light controlled by entertainment system. Seats in front of toilet cluster lit up every time door was opened. Crew were slow to react. Wasn't a priority. Ruined the excellent first leg of had from Philadelphia to Frankfurt. Do they run inferior planes to South Africa compared to USA?"

Pros: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew/ service was great & clean bathrooms on the flight"
Cons: "Terrible food quality. Zero leg space. The Newark terminal is ancient & fire alarm went off for over 20min before boarding."
Pros: "The food was okay and the crew did their best to make us comfortable once we were on board. We flew business class, so that was probably a factor."
Cons: "Everything else was horrible. When we got to the airport, they didn't even know we were coming. They sent us to two other airlines, assuming we were flying with a partner airline, then tried to shift the blame onto Kayak. When -- and ONLY when -- we pointed out that we'd actually booked directly through Condor and Kayak had only served as the intermediary, they gave us a direct line to call. Then their agent said "You can't always trust the people at the desk, you know." Oh, really? If I can't trust your own agents, who can I trust, exactly? It turned out that we had an initial flight to Minneapolis, which was NOWHERE on the itinerary, on Sun Country. The Sun Country folks, thankfully, were enormously helpful and we made our flight with 2 minutes to spare. But it doesn't end there. We'd paid for business class all the way, but only got it on the interseas portions of our flights. And they lost our luggage on the way home, to boot. Take home lesson? NEVER FLY WITH CONDOR. I'll walk to Europe before ever booking with them again. And I'll make sure that all my friends and colleagues, all of whom travel extensively, know of our experience."
Pros: "I really don't remember. I slept through the entire flight."
Cons: "They boarded us from the back and the front of the plane so at one point you had people trying to pass each other in the aisles. Weird. That could've been handled better. Also, people were allowed to put their back packs in the over head so didn't leave much room for luggsge carry on. Flight attendants weren't helpful either. One just said that all carry on should be able to under the seat."
Pros: "everything"
Pros: "Efficient and well-run operation. Professional and attentive flight crew."
Cons: "Extremely loud engine noise in Economy Cabin. Concern on impact on hearing during transatlatic flight. Crampt seating."

Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Pros: "staff at airport were friendly, helpful"
Cons: "telephone reps NOT helpful and do not know the airplane seat maps"
Pros: "While showing wear and tear, the business seats are great - comfortable with nice design"
Cons: "Nothing"

Hot as heck on flight

Leaving Miami to Austin was a mess! TSA needs to do better job!

Wifi not working on iPhones

Friendly crew and clean airplane. Also loved the device charger hookup. Would have liked some more of those delicious biscuit cookies! =)

Pros: "I like the movie selection"
Cons: "The landing was horrible like slamming on the brakes in traffic. Also when I bought the ticket from Alaska Airlibes on kayak I had bought it at a higher price specifically for that. There was an American Airlines ticket that was cheaper but I opted to pay more because I thought I was flying on Alaska not American. I was very disappointed to see that I was actually flying on American once I was pro ting my ticket and after purchase and "no refund" message. I was very upset about that!"

Cons: "Seating still needs a little more padding for comfort. Delta airlines has a screen on every seat and you can see where you are and how far you have gone and so on. That would be nice. It was very difficult to hear what the pilot said when he spoke to say hello and whatever else he said. Entertainment? There wasn't any on this flight"

Anyways on time and excellent service

The connections were very tight, I had delays on the first 2/3 flights and almost missed the connecting flights. Check in at Austin took nearly an hour and almost jeopardised making the first flight

Pros: "My trip had two legs, Austin to Heathrow and Heathrow to Riyadh. The crew from Heathrow to Riyadh were great. I wish I could say the same about the crew from Austin to Heathrow."
Cons: "Overall, the flight was fine. My comments are relative to BA 1st class. At best, I would rate it in the middle of the business class flights I've flown on other airlines. There is nothing about the experience that is actually 1st class from a separate lounge, to boarding, to in flight meals. The seats on my planes were worse than Turkish Airlines Business class (among many others). Storage around the seat is also FAR worse than other airlines products,even in business class. I had taken the same flights in November and 95-98% of the entertainment options were the same. There were, maybe, 2 new movies and 2-3 new documentaries/TV shows. The in seat charger only worked on one leg. Several meal options were "sold out." Mediocre at best."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and willing to assist with everything."
Pros: "All flights were on time. Boarding was well organized."
Cons: "Seats seem more cramped than comparable airlines. Food quality was poor. For one meal they didn't honor my special meal request (they did for the other meal, so they got the request). Flight attendants didn't check back in comfort of passengers."
Pros: "The flight was 9hr each leg which is not baf of elder people. The food was fine. Entertainment was good. Austin to london flight was a little spacious and comfortable."
Cons: "You need to display gate information for connecting flight well in advance for thr elder people to get to the gate on time. We had the gate information displayed just 1 hour before departure. London to hyderabad flight was too cold. If the temperature was adjusted above 72 degrees it would have been appreciated. London to hyderabad flight was cramped up. Not at all spacious, my knees started to hurt after the flight."
Pros: "the crew was courteous and did their best to address problems that were beyond their control. alcoholic beverages are free."
Cons: "the light and most of the screen features did not work in our seats. I have encountered this problem before. this is a long and expensive flight for this stuff not to work. the food (special meal, asian vegetarian) was an awful, undistinguishable mush--poor presentation and dubious nutritional value"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Really old plane with uncomfortable seats and really bad in flight options. The air conditioning was also broken so the entire flight felt hot and muggy, this is on a 12 hour flight!!"
Pros: "Smooth flight without event. On time landing. Efficient deplaning."
Cons: "Newer plane. Seats , entertainment, cabin crew."

Cons: "Very poor movie choice and poor quality screen"
Pros: "polite crew"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "We pushed back from the gate about 24 minutes late and arrived at our destination about 38 minutes late. The four-course dinner (Chicken Tikka Masala or Penne Pasta) was good for airline food. The crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "No USB power ports by the seats."
Pros: "Food was probably best"
Cons: "1. Both legs of flights delayed 2. Need an update to their entertainment screens 3. Flights were on the hot side"

Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was a bit uncomfortable! It was rather hot and stuffy."
Pros: "Fed twice enroute"
Cons: "Did not hand out landing cards during the flight"
Pros: "direct flight and flight times"
Cons: "old plane no option to reserve seats. ended up with 4 random middle seats in the plane"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful Plane was clean Food was hot"
Cons: "Plane was old. Small screen; limited relimited recline. No usb charger. Headphone jack loose. Seats not the best."
Pros: "The Crew were great"
Cons: "Boarding could have been more efficient"
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Tiny space, uncomfortable seats, poor food"
Pros: "Nothing to special comparing with other first class"
Cons: "Boarding process was very late, they made us wait in the cold for 10 min before letting us in the plane. The staff was professional but not too friendly and the place is old. When I purchased the ticket it said it was a airbus A380"
Pros: "Staff are friendly, accomodating for an unaccompanied child with me, upgraded me and helped to support the extra baggage needs"
Cons: "Old, dirty planes with bad enterainment systems and mediocre food and drink offerings. With the price of a ticket more than Emirates, KLM and other airlines, always really suprised the overall crappy hardware, infrastructure on planes etc. When can we get a decent plane to fly the long haul flights. And an actual entertainment system like to competitors?"
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "n/a"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "There was an abusive passenger sitting behind me that kicked my chair the entire flight. They were angry that they didn't have more space and that I wanted to have my seat back. I offered to put it up during meal times to make sure they had enough space but that wasn't good enough. The crew knew what was happening and tried to get the other passenger to stop but the passenger persisted. The crew refused to upgrade me even though I had paid for an aisle seat and there were no other aisle seats available for me to move to. I find this service unacceptable. I probably won't be willing to fly BA again as they obviously care more about money than ensuring their customers are comfortable."
Cons: "Broken tray, broken ear jack, very full flight and staff very rushed , skipping people re meals and drinks, definitely not as good a team as my outbound flight"
Pros: "The crew were great, boarding was very easy."

Pros: "Pleasant helpful staff, comfortable, clean seat, good food."
Cons: "Having to pay TWICE for extra item of luggage!! Some delay with boarding"
Pros: "Liked club class seats!"
Cons: "If BA wants to do business in USA, perhaps they might consider that many international travelers use Global Entry and TSA precheck services. It's not nice showing up and taking your shoes off and fumbling through your carry on to consolidate liquids without being forewarned!"
Pros: "What a different experience in relation to last week!"
Pros: "Wonderful customer service and hot meal was a lovely treat!!"
Cons: "No direct communication. Really bad"

Pros: "Boarding was speedy and efficient in Austin. The plane (787-9) was very new and clean and felt like a premium experience."
Cons: "Our assigned crew member was short with customers and not to the usual friendly standard of other BA flights we have taken. The food (Veggie Lacto Ovo) was disappointing. We had no bread versus other passengers and had fruit for both desert and breakfast. A little imagination goes a long way, normally only the main is different but this experience was very underwhelming."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Was not able to check in through to Cape Town, only JNB. When arrived in JNB, British Airways flight was not clearly identifiable from ticket (no flight number). Then the flight was delayed, and plane was old! Horrible experience"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The whole trip."
Cons: "My preferred Food selection unavailable"
Pros: "The crew were wonderful. Very nice folks. Made it difficult to complain about the terrible small seats"
Cons: "The Seats. We paid Extra for bulkhead. Nice legroom but horrible for trays. The seats were very small and uncomfortable. I will never fjy again for so many hours if I can't manage better seating."
Pros: "Movie/TV selection good Crew good"
Cons: "Food so so Need more.leg room ways"
Pros: "It was on time"
Pros: "Flight was good and I am satisfied."
Cons: "My entertainment set didn't work because the headphone jack was broken so that was a major bummer."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant."
Cons: "Flight was extremely late arriving."
Cons: "Legroom, bin space, food"
Pros: "Great crew and friendly service. They are not too hard on customers and are professional."
Pros: "Reliable way to get to Houston. Very short flight, so doesn't make sense to have food service besides the one drink they offer."
Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "There was a name change needed for the flight..they weren’t able to support that at all resulting me cancelling the flight."
Pros: "Good flight, personal device entertainment, on-plane flight attendant helped switch some seats so my family could stick together"
Cons: "Meddlesome gate agent split my family up before we boarded, lost one of my bags at SFO (got it 1.5 days later)."
Cons: "taxi time longer than fly time"
Pros: "Delayed, still in Houston waiting for another flight to go back home since last night"
Pros: "Aside from the turbulence the ride was fine."
Cons: "We got stuck for an hour on the tarmac in Denver, completely ruining the transfer process and I got stuck overnight in Denver."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Crowded"
Pros: "Overall experience was good."
Cons: "The food and the long layover"
Pros: "We liked the crew, they were helpful."
Cons: "We did not like the video on the United flight that used the app. We were not told about this until it was too late and the instructions were not good for how to get the app--they were misleading. I had to go to the app store, not the United website. Also, our seats were changed without our knowledge and the flight description for the flight from Austin to Washington, DC, specified complimentary lunch and there was no lunch unless you wanted to buy it. This should be more clear, so that I can bring my own lunch if there will be none provided."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My plans for travel were ruined because when I arrived at the airport for my flight I was told it was too late to check my bags, therefore I had to be placed on a later flight which then set off a chain reaction where I lost my rental car and missed various meetings at the event I was supposed to be at my final destination. The main issue was that when I purchased my ticket throughout Kayak YOU NEVER SPECIFIED THAT I SHOULD CHECK MY BAGS 45 MINUTES EARLY OR I WOULD LOOSE MY FLIGHT. YOUR LACK OF CLEAR INSTRUCTION SCREWED UP MY TRIP"
Pros: "Service"
Pros: "Danny and tansha were friendly . They looked like they enjoyed their jobs. The kind of people that if we met on the street I'd want to hang out with."
Cons: "The run through the Huston hub, to catch a flight in 10 minutes."
Pros: "The attendants were friendly, knowledgeable, available. Flight was ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable and cramped. Cold inside plane. "Free" Wi-Fi free only after you downloaded app. Didn't know I needed to down load app before we took off so then I needed Wi-Fi to download app, which cost money. Noisy inside plane. Ear plugs would be nice."
Pros: "Boarding was easy, seat was good for economy."
Cons: "Although it was a short flight it was not great. We departed late having to run through Houston to our next termunal halfway across the airport. The flight was very hot, no cool air from the vents. Very turbulant...but no bad weather."
Pros: "The flight was 3 hours late, for 'weather conditions' as we were told. We've been given no compensation or vouchers. Communication was super poor: displays still showing the originary boarding time. And then suddenly they started birding before the time announced."
Pros: "Missed my flight so I ended up staying overnight in the airport to catch the 5:25 am flight the next morning. One of the cleaning staff found a blanket for me which really helped since it was incredible cold in the airport."
Cons: "Security line at BWI is extremely long and under staffed compared to other airports. There was not enough legroom and the flight attendants pressured people to check baggage when there was plenty of room on the flight to stow luggage."
Pros: "The flight crew."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Drinks and snacks were good. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Flight crew was a little noisy."
Cons: "The arrogance and attitude from air crew, ground service staff to lounge receptionist was unreal."
Pros: "Polite, professional and kept us informed"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "Everything was ok."
Cons: "I didn't get any food mainly because of the cost. I did get a complimentary drink. I did not get any entertainment but was under the impression there was a cost. Too short of a flight for that."
Pros: "Flight itself was short."
Cons: "It took longer to board and wait to take off than the entire flight lasted. Deplaning and receiving gate checked bags seemed to take longer than normal times. One of the attendants (don't know his name, but he had glasses) was not pleasant. He seemed to want to be anywhere other than there."
Pros: "Entertainment via my device instead of one built into the seat."
Cons: "Far too little space between me and the seat in front of me, and that's before the person in front of me reclines their seat."
Cons: "Everything was horrible"
Pros: "It was on time and the staff was very friendly."
Cons: "I sat at the very back. :-("
Cons: "Delay without updates. Almost missed my connection. No TV."
Cons: "Price was not competitive"
Pros: "Seats where comfortable in economy plus. And friendly staff"
Cons: "No snacks offered."
Pros: "I must say I was happy with the comfortable seats and easy check in. Also found it to be a little more spacious than other airlines. Helpful and friendly crew."
Cons: "However, there was a 2 hour delay for "maintenance" on my way to my destination. Then, on my returning flight, there was another 1 hour delay. I understand it happens here and there, but I got held up both ways. Just thought I'd mention this."
Pros: "My flight was early every time"
Cons: "All planes were booked fully"
Cons: "Needs more leg room"
Pros: "Airline attendants were friendly and attentive."
Cons: "I sat in a window seat, yet had no window. I travelled with two other people, and none of us were able to sit together. The seats were more cramped than any other plane I had been on. The light above me was not even strong enough to illuminate the words of the book I was reading, so thankfully there was still some sunshine. There was also no in air entertainment, which I feel like is usually a standard on most planes nowadays."
Pros: "The connection Austin to Newark, Newark to Amsterdam"
Cons: "plane could be cleaner"
Cons: "Limited food and drinks options."
Pros: "Polite attendants!"
Cons: "Will definitely recommend to friends!"
Pros: "They were on time."
Cons: "They changed my seating choice."
Cons: "Return trip had small planes"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable on this plane."
Pros: "When they couldn't do their job they turned us over to American Airlines."
Cons: "Cancelled our scheduled 1:30 pm flight from Austin to Chicago for "scheduled" maintainence. We drove 3 hours and spent almost $300 for a rental car to get to Dallas for the flight they put us on, which we couldn't make. We told the check in counter and they gave us boarding passes for an American flight that wouldn't leave until 10:00 pm but that we could try to get on stand by for an earlier flight. At this point we were already missing a concert we were trying to make in Chicago. Another $150 gone. We were lucky enough to make the 8:30 pm Dallas to Chicago with American and arrived at Ohare by 11:00 pm. All in all United wasted $300 on a rental car, $150 of concert tickets and 5 hours of paid time off I can't get back. Very disappointed. PS: they gave us food vouchers at the airport to apologize and they were already expired. They couldn't do one thing right."
Pros: "Good FA's, ahead of schedule,"
Pros: "Easy boarding for elderly slow passengers"
Cons: "Crowded seat space"
Cons: "Limited space"
Pros: "The flight was uneventful and we landed early. Although there were no entertainment options on the plane besides wifi, I just watched my own shows on the smartphone. The snack that we got was actually not bad."
Cons: "Seat is still a bit small, even with their updated seats that moved the seat pockets to the top. Cushion is hard and became uncomfortable after an hour o so."
Pros: "Piolet communication, safe smooth landing inspite of horible turbulence."
Cons: "4hr delay, late on serving snacks, small aircraft, no tv, no phone charge system in the seats like other airlines/planes has."
