Cons: "The baggage drop attendant was very unhelpful when I asked if she could help me sort out an issue (when I checked in online for the second leg of my trip, i paid for my bag then but they wanted me to pay again for my first flight) and just dismissed me and said she couldn't help, making me pay again for my bag.

Pros: "Left on time all went well in Atlanta"
Cons: "Impossible to figure out what to do in Toronto at Canadian Customs. You move from secure to unsecure then back to secure. It’s a mess and nobody tells you what to do or where to go. Picture process took 4 times. Nobody tells you that you have to transfer your own bags from Delta to West Jet. I even asked in a Toronto and they said no and nobody in Atlanta told me to collect my bags. So bags never made it until the next AM. The West Jet rep was very good and located the bags and they were delivered as promised. You should provide 3 page detailed instructions on how to handle Toronto. I am a seasoned traveler by the way. I’ve never seen anything worse. I could go on and on."

Cons: "Unkindness of gate agent"
Cons: "Not a fan of having "final boarding call" announced to run to the gate, only to sit on the plane at the gate for 30 min because of a scheduled delay at my destination. I know the flight wasn't very full, but that cost me an opportunity to eat dinner. I had to cancel a fast food order because I thought I'd miss my flight!"
Pros: "That a delta plane actually had seat back video screens- First delta flight ever that I've been on that did. But every ones screen froze up just over an hour into the flight."
Cons: "Even though the Atlanta to Toronto arrived 'early' I had barely 20 minutes to get to the other plane- I would not have made it with out the amazing staff of weather and the Toronto airport. I use a wheelchair and even zipping through as fast as I could I was 15 minutes late arriving at the gate. I booked this flight thinking I had at least and hour and a bit between flights. Thankfully others on my flight were also late so the Ottawa bound plane did not leave on time"
Pros: "When you are delayed, there is not much to commend."
Cons: "Delayed. That pretty well says it all."
Pros: "The crew was good and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "Somehow we were double booked and double billed. We got to the airport 3 hours early and checked our bags. All 3 were lost and searched. Everything was put back precariously and there was shampoo and lotion everywhere."
Pros: "i love the view from the window seats and that I was able to relax and the snacks."
"The staff at Frankfurt were incredibly rude telling passengers “I don’t have time for you”. I’ve never had a worse experience than with the ground staff Lufthansa in Frankfurt. Avoid at all costs."

Cons: "check in takes 30 minutes since my visa was in old passport"
Cons: "The entertainment did not work good the entire flight"

Cons: "Really great flight. Can’t say enough about it."
Pros: "Planes were comfortable and well maintained."
Cons: "Agent changed our flight to Munich and sent as a email with with confirmation on July 10. involuntary. On July 20. I checked Lufthansa app and found that only flight that was shown was flight Toronto-Thunder Bay. After 3 hours of phoning I found that flight from Munich to Toronto wasn’t available for date that was given us in email. Only option was day earlier or later. Left us to take day earlier and we could not changed last flight( Toronto- Thunder Bay). We had to come on Aug 22. and stay in Toronto for 27 hours and than take a flight to Thunder Bay on Aug 23. We lost a day of our vacation, had to stay at hotel. Not good experience at all. We still don’t know whom to complain about that."
Cons: "A delay due to an electrical storm prevented us from taking off for over an hour which we had to wait to end on the plane."
Pros: "Great service."
Cons: "New planes have 9 sits in the rove (economy class) which affects the passengers comfort."
Pros: "Entertainment and food were geat and a great distraction from the seating arrangement and the horrible leg area."
Cons: "Not having a chair leg in the middle of the leg area. being able to sit next to my partner instead of having us split up. If we bought two tickets at the same time we should have been able to sit together. Lastly the huge delay that caused us to miss are final flight."
Cons: "Broke my bagage"
Pros: "The crew was excellent and the seats are v comfortable"
Cons: "I cant really think of anything"
Cons: "Touch screens were not working well. Required multiple hard taps which disturbed the passenger in front."

Pros: "The agent worked hard to find us another flight to rome"
Cons: "Our plane sat on turnac in Toronto waiting for a parking gate for 30minutes making us miss our connecting flight. Finally arrived but missed our train to Florence had to stay Saturday night in Rome while our villa in Lucca sat empty which was paid for"
Pros: "Food quality was good, and movies had a great selection. Boarding went quickly."
Cons: "We did not request special meals because in the past there has always been an option without cheese. For both legs of the trip, everything had cheese. They tasted great, but left my husband eating only bread. At the first meal the crew just shrugged their shoulders. Second meal they brought him a snack from business class, but it had cream cheese on the sandwich. Drinks were only served during the meals on an 8 hour flight. When crew came back through at the first meal, they only had two bottles of wine in hand offering top offs (no cart, just physically carrying the bottles). We do not drink alcohol. During the second meal I did not even see them offering the top offs. All other airlines have at least come through a couple of times offering water or soda. Announcements were only audible half the time. Customs forms were confusing for people passing through Canada. This might have been explained over the intercom, but again, it was hard to hear."
Cons: "No seat assigned at check-in or even as they begin boarding. I thought I was flying Lufthansa. Air Canada gate agents were condescending. Very disappointed."
Pros: "The plane was extra comfortable . The Lufthanza is it exceptional airline very nice people better than most American Airlines"
Cons: "Never made it"
Cons: "food could have been better especially "breakfast"."
Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "The usual flight discomfort, but the seat in front of me was broke. The person in it struggled to stay out of my lap, which I appreciated. The connecting flight had a non-functional screen and the reading light broke and flew across the cabin."
Pros: "I enjoy that their planes have more space, the food is delicious, and their caring and kind attitudes all through the experience!"
Cons: "The entertainment center at my seat was not working properly and kept stopping and would have to be reset."
Pros: "All good - flight, service all great!!!"
Pros: "boarding area was bit confusing"
Pros: "New planes, friendly staff, decent space even for economy, great food"
Cons: "One of the restrooms was out of service for most of the flight. The other ran out of toilet paper."
Pros: "The food was great and the crew was respectful and helpful."
Cons: "I couldn't get my tablet to work with the headphones. In order to watch and hear anything, I had to hold my headphones with a certain pressure and frequently spin the headphones in order to hear anything."
Pros: "I have never flown with Lufthansa, but now, I will fly with them any chance I get. The crew were amazing. Friendly and attentive. For airplane food, it was very good and tasty. Received headphones, a pillow and a blanket for the flight. Legroom was good, but probably cramped for people over 6'0" tall. 24 hour online check-in was smooth an trouble free. I like having the boarding pass on my phone. No paper to carry around."
Pros: "There was good in flight entertainment"
Cons: "The food was barely edible. I'm glad to have brought a snack in my bag."
Pros: "Very pleasant experience: comfortable airplane and helpful crew, timely departure/arrival, continuing support with information about baggage after arrival."
Pros: "I flew economy. Good plane, ok food, frequent meals, good coffee, free beers and wine, best flight crew I've ever had."
Cons: "economy: The chairs were ok but I've had better ones."
Cons: "This Lufthansa flight was flown through Air Canada, so this review doesn't reflect on other hosts. However the flight was the worst service I've ever had on an airline in every category."
Pros: "Entertainment system, food. Crew was great."
Cons: "Delayed boarding and artival to YYZ"
Cons: "It took too long to drop by luggage. Some of the crew wasn't friendly."
Pros: "The crew was professional and cordial. For some reason the entire AV system needed to be rebooted which required at least 15 minutes."
Cons: "There was supposed to be a meal and a snack on this flight. There was a good meal but the "snack" was a pack of pretzels. I think Lufthansa's partner AC could do a little better. I think the drinks cart should precede the food cart. I did not receive my drink until 3/4 of the way through my meal."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Pros: "Staff were fantastic!"
Cons: "No entertainment system for a 10 hour flight! Found out once we were in the boarding area via an announcement to download the Air Canada app to use their wifi entertainment. Or rent an iPad. Not cool! The elderly lady beside us didn't even own a phone. That's a long flight! And all my records indicated Lufthansa (run by AC) flight. So strange. No wonder people are not AC fans. Understandable to say the least."
Cons: "Not enough leg room I am 6ft 3 tall"
Cons: "Gate distances were too far away and passport control in Munich is not organized"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very polite and helpful. The seats had those "wings" on either side of the head rest to help keep your head from bobbing back and forth. There were a few good movies to watch that were current, but a lot of old movies that we had zero interest in."
Cons: "The flight was considered a Lufthansa flight and had a Lufthansa flight number, but was operated by Air Canada. We could not check in online ahead of time for some reason. When we got to the airport, we tried to check in at the Lufthansa kiosk and check in line, but they told us we had to go to the Air Canada area. The ticketing/check in process was very confusing. As for the food, the chicken "wrap" was not a wrap, and was a weird Hot-Pocket type meal. After each meal, we ended up having to hold our garbage for quite some time which made manuvering in and out of seats a little tricky. I wish the seat cushion had a little more cushion since we were sitting for so long. Also at some point the overhead lights came on and stayed on, which was annoying if you were trying to nap."
Cons: "The return leg has been nothing but a disaster, in every way possible, specifically my time and financially. At no point in the booking process, when I paid over $800 for the trip, was I told that I needed a specific travel visa (Canadian ETA) to fly back into Toronto for my return flight. Subsequently when I checked in for my flight yesterday morning in Manchester, England, I did not have the required travel documents and had to be rerouted onto a flight into the U.S. at a cost to me of $350. The rerouted flight got me to Washington Dulles airport, where I then had to purchase a second flight to get me home to Cleveland, Ohio, at an additional/extra cost of $450. MY CAR IS PARKED AT TORONTO PEARSON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT!!! I am having to now rent a car and drive there tomorrow (Friday) to collect my car, at another additional cost of $100 plus a 10-hour round trip. Due to the lack of information and communication on your companies behalf, I am down close to a $1,000 and will lose 2-days in work as of the additional days I am having to travel back to Toronto to collect my vehicle. I would appreciate contact from your organization to find the avenue I need to take for compensation of my time and finances. Regards"
Cons: "This airline has little respect for its customers. In the economy/coach cabin, they squeeze the seat distances to such an extent that, when the person in front of you leans their chair back, you cannot get out of your seat at an upright angle. You have to significantly bend your body. To not loose your balance, you have to grab on to the seat in front of you and that disturbs the other passenger. If they're sleeping, they can be woken up by that. Lufthansa does not care much for its passengers. Nor do many other companies, for that matter, but I think Lufthansa is taking things further than most airlines. It is a disgrace. Their brand is not what it once was."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2.5 hours, for a reason they never made clear after they let the passengers wait in line for 45 minutes to board. Once aboard, the Lufthansa planes were much much less comfortable than the Air Canada plane I took to Frankfurt. There is very little space and the seats are crammed together. The food they served was very bad, especially again in comparison with Air Canada. Once we arrived in Toronto, they made us wait nearly an hour before exiting the aircraft. It would seem that the Toronto airport would have to know we were coming and should have prepared accordingly, but apparently not. We sat, several passengers missed their connecting flights and were angry. I nearly missed my flight, having to run and race through customs (who are in no hurry)."
Cons: "2 1/2 hour wait while boarded then missed flights in toronto. Toronto airport a mess! Unclear directions and procedues."
Cons: "My tv did not work all way from M to T,complain 3 times, was promised to reset tv. Never get it."
Pros: "The crew did really well in serving everyone. They were polite, helpful and on the go from the time we boarded until the time we landed."
Cons: "The greatest issue I have has to do with the state of Gatwick which is now under construction. Air conditioning was not available at our gate nor the seating area. We stood at our gate for a long time before being processed so that we could enter the seating area for the flight. We went from hot to hotter prior to boarding."
Pros: "The upgrade to business class"
Cons: "Not Applicable"
Pros: "Yes, Very good"
Pros: "This Transavia Airlines is not good at all."
Cons: "Many things cheaper does mean better."
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable. Plane interior was in new condition, including electronic window shade tinting."
Cons: "Staff was not particularly warm or attentive. Was never offered more to drink, and after asking for more wine was ignored."
Pros: "The crew is excellent but the seats are not comfortable enough. There should be a way to balance money and comfort,not just placing people in seats they do not fit into"
Cons: "Nothing,just the seats. Cleanliness was perfect"
Pros: "Impressive service... amazing crew, very friendly and professional"
Cons: "All of the less than good, obvious!"

Cons: "Flight was delayed, had to run to my next connection flight."
Cons: "Everything was OK"
Pros: "Seats were super comfortable, bigger than most planes with extra leg room. Food was excellent and fresh, amazing Dutch cheese sampler was divine. No nonsense staff who had all connecting flight info on hand when we arrived in Abu Dhabi. KLM staff were friendly and efficient. Fabulous airline."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, flight on schedule and good entertainment."
Cons: "Space is just reasonable on a long flight, even if there's seats more spacious that you could choose if you pay more."
Cons: "Don’t be late"
Pros: "No delay and nice staff"
Cons: "Flight 2 hours delayed, started boarding but had to wait on line 10 more minutes on boarding ramp for plane door to be opened, upon landing in Dublin had to wait on tarmac for anther 15 minutes for stairs to arrive and be connected to airplane. Then had to wait another hour for checked luggage...."
Pros: "The space at my feet with the chair in front was a bit akward."
Cons: "Not being seated next to small kids. Perhaps they should have a separate section? ;-)"
Pros: "Amazing services .. on time just exactly .. I feel really happy onboard KLM ❤️"
Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "Seat confort on long flights, leg rooms,"

Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours"

Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Nice flight ...was comfortable travel ...good food.Thanks"
Cons: "No such things"
Pros: "Good entertainment options. Nice flight attendants"

Cons: "Boarding was confusing and disorganized"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn’t working for the whole 10 hour flight."
Pros: "Left ontime and service was excellent."
Pros: "Really friendly staff. Great service"
Pros: "The flight crew was nice. Plane departed/arrived on time."
Cons: "I paid €60 extra to sit in the emergency door seat to get more leg room but once.i was in the plane learned for more leg room I accepted a smaller seat next to a bathroom and no entertainment. I could not store my belongings near me. No power outlet to charge my devices for my own entertainment on a 7 hour flight. Dealing with constant traffic for the bathroom. I sat in the middle seat between two hours other men. It was a constant struggle arm space. After 7hours in the air I could not wait to get off the plane. If I didn't actually pay an extra €60 for the seat I may not feel bad but I feel like I might have been better off without paying for the "upgrade""
Pros: "I personally do not appreciate the food on this leg of the journey Food Ams to Dxb is GOOD!!"
Cons: "The snack & “ solid eggs” in breakfast. Fresh fruit was good."
Pros: "Just great crew."
Cons: "Not comfortable at all and will not book KLM again."
Pros: "Clean airplane, friendly crew, no rush, nice snacks for a short one hour flight. Just generally a positive experience."
Pros: "The cabin crew were pretty good. That's about all that was good."
Cons: "I paid almost $400 for upgraded seats. When I got to the airport-- no seats-- both ways!! i didn't even have regular seat assignments. I had to choose from the last few seats available. The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again."
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Pros: "The last two times we connected in Amsterdam to Humberside our luggage was delayed. This time it wasn’t. The simple things give the greatest satisfaction"
Pros: "The supplied pack of toothpaste/toothbrush"
Pros: "was very quick"
Pros: "Professional, welcoming and very friendly crew, well-maintained aircraft, comfortable seat and good food. Keep up the good work, KLM."
Cons: "Not much to comment on here."
Cons: "OLD OLD plane with hard seats and tiny screens"
Pros: "The crew service is impeccable. Ground services very friendly and professional."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. The individual screens are simply outdated like you basically will damage your eyes looking at them. No chargers for phones."
Pros: "Comfortable flight to Amsterdam for vacation in UK. More meals than expected. Also wasn't expecting some of the comforts offered to "regular" class seats like eye masks, ear plugs, pillows and blankets. It was an overnight flight, so maybe that should have been expected, but I don't think we had those 4 years ago when traveling overseas."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet min characters."
Pros: "Food and staff were great"
Cons: "Entertainment system old and not as many options as other KLM flight. No power on aircraft for charging"
Pros: "Very good flight, excellent service and good food."
Pros: "Flight crew on flight from Amsterdam to Cape Town were probably the most friendly and enthusiastic I've experienced and no, they were not all young. The plane was spotless throughout the flight. They were always coming around with water and juice and they genuinely seemed to care about all the passengers. The Flight back crew were just the opposite. More like the old lazy farts you get on the American carriers or BA or QF long haul. Whoo have been there for the long haul and should have stopped ages ago."
Cons: "The Entertainment images on the screens promoted Beauty and the Beast, Batman Lego movie but neither were on the system! Food quality was rubbish"
Pros: "For an 8 hr flight...multiple snacks, 2 meals and continuous beverage service. Blanket, pillow amd movies."
Cons: "Watched flight attendant drop tongs on floor, pick them up and put them back in the bowl of buns and continue to use them to serve bums"
Pros: "Unexpected surprise--even on a 1 hour flight at noon, they gave us a sandwich!"
"Flight to Florence delayed. All passengers took a bus to Pisa (1.5 hours away) to fly Pisa to Paris. We missed our connection and flew next day. All information regarding the delay online was incorrect ("system not yet updated") . So calling Air France was useless as they could not assist. Not all flight delays can be avoided but many improvements are needed throughout this process."
Pros: "The seat was really comfortable and I was able to sleep the whole flight with no disturbance"
Pros: "Crew was great but at the airport they had us weight our carry on and then made us check it for 90 euro."
Cons: "I was almost forced to stow my luggage in the hold despite me telling the check-in people tjat I had my meds and cpap in the carryon. I spoke to multiple people. Not sensitive."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The time. The flight was late for 1 hour. I miss everything and also I get very late to our Airbnb and I was with my family and child"
Cons: "Comfort plus seats need some work. Very thin padding on a hard seat. The leg rest needs to come up higher so you don’t slide down while semi reclined. Nice compromise between business and coach though."
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Awoke to find ill man laying on floor in aisle next to me with oxygen. Shortly after... Passenger in seat near man on floor (diabetic but no one tells us anything) needs to lay across four seats with oxygen for heart issues for remainder of trip with staff and doctor on board nearby. Nevdr informed what was happening, never offered to move our seats or move iIl passengers. Glad all turned out ok. Could have given them more privacy and better informed other passengers."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and surprisingly the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "I think more attention should be paid to cleaning the plane and eeek, there was no liqueur in economy class. Music selection in entertainment should be wider too"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful in all respects."
Cons: "Not getting everyone standing in line to board one hour and 10 minutes before scheduled departure."
Cons: "boarding groups were not adhered to and those in a lower boarding group often boarded well after those in later boarding groups."
Cons: "Boarding clusterf..."
Pros: "Great crew and prompt boarding."
Cons: "Airline food and close main cabin seating. Should offer upgraded meals, just like the extra seating space."
Cons: "Crew forced me to change my upgraded comfort seat to accommodate a 12 year old who they knew was going to be airsick. So I spent the first half of the flight next to a vomiting girl. Only after I asked to file a complaint, they allowed me one of two empty seats in premium. Terrible customer service."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Food was excellent"
Cons: "Excelente aerolínea"
Pros: "The new movies selection, food was very good, staff more friendly than previous flights"
Cons: "Boarding always a problem on MEA we have to wait too long in the queue"
Cons: "More chose in meals. I flew to and from within a week. All I had were chicken, chicken and chicken for snack too."
Pros: "Great seat. Comfortable. Quick boarding."
Cons: "Asked flight attendant to wake me for breakfast....forgot. Long wait for bathroom,"
Pros: "Really liked the new touch screens (with very good responsiveness). Also liked the food selection (the champagne was nice, so was the menu we were given)."
Cons: "10 minutes late to the airport....... No help, no refund, no nothing. Never using you again"
Pros: "More experienced, professional crew, better food and service."
Cons: "A screaming child for 8 hours (understood this is not their fault, but it did make the journey unpleasant). Old aircraft with small screens, no power etc."
Pros: "Modern aircraft with power, big screens etc"
Cons: "Teenage crew, poor service (not even water brought on request, all "self service" at back of flight, and not being allowed a second drink with dinner), poor language skills (crew not very helpful when 2 hour delay meant I could miss connecting flight, suggesting I "walk fast")."
Cons: "Everything. The crew seemed to skip over me and my husband multiple times. So we sat there with garbage the whole flight. My entertainment was broken and they had no solution but giving me $30 to use at the duty free shop the same day as the flighty. I paid extra for premium seating in an exit row and that was their idea of fair compensation. The crew ran out of vegetarian food so I didn’t eat anything but cold stale bread. The crew was non-existent most of the flight."
Pros: "Food was Fantastic, Air France the Best on Air."
Cons: "The seat seemed smaller and space was very uncomfortable. The boarding process was very painful because we had to wait for a longtime."
Cons: "Took very long from landing/ arrival until baggage could be collected. Priority luggage came out last!"
Cons: "Movies were dated. Crew spoke limited and broken English, not good enough for international flights."
Pros: "I didn’t actually liked the entertainment"
Cons: "I just didn’t enjoy the entrainment."
Cons: "Its been a week. My trip has ended. I still do not have my bags. Terrible customer service."
Pros: "Speed, courtesy of the flight attendants"
Cons: "Landing was a bit rough, understandable due to the weather."
Cons: "no vegeterian sandwiches very disappointed"
Cons: "There should be more layover time as I almost missed my flight and My luggage was delayed!!"
Pros: "Good cabin, but very conjugated :|"
Cons: "Too much of hassle checking in as the airlines partners with a couple of other airlines like Jet Airways, WestJet & Aircanada. The food was just okay and the cabin crew refused to serve extra butter. When you are serving extra bread, make sure you serve the butter as well. How could someone eat bread by itself?"
Pros: "the food"
Cons: "no room for legs"
Pros: "Pretty decent"
Cons: "Not much"
Cons: "The food: asked for vegetarian but got incipit vegan... Mostly rice with coconut milk"
Pros: "the Airline"
Cons: "The Airport, Security, Boarder control."
Pros: "I liked the way a fligh attandant treated me and another two passengers. At the end of the flight he gave us a cup of strawberries for all. The food was delicious specially that pasta, it was yummy."
Cons: "TV was too slow."
Pros: "Friendly crew and exit row had nice legroom."
Cons: "Ran out of the (already not sufficient) salty crackers and, as the flight had been delayed, we had a one packet of cracker 'lunch' at noon... the flight really should have had a sandwich or at least something slightly more substantial."
Cons: "Everything. AF changed seats without authorization or notification, separating a mother from her 3 year old daughter. Their entire attitude was "nothing to be done, now board plane and leave" no compensation was offered, nothing done to remedy their mistake or rude behavior and treatment"
Pros: "The service and food were excellent plane was clean."
Cons: "No entertainment system"
Pros: "Lovely crew, clean toilets"
Cons: "It's an a380, stains everywhere, aisles between seats narrow even for business, caos at CDG, no clear queues, ground staff shout at passengers, food selection good but huge gap between describtion and reality, in JFK we waited for 30 minutes cause the docking spot was too narrow for the captain, sky priority? The economy got their bags before 1st and business."
Pros: "Standard stuff"
Cons: "Our first leg from Paris was delayed and we missed our flight to Dubrovnik. We then had to hire a car and drive 6 hours to ensure we wouldn't lose a day more of our holiday."
Cons: "I was forced to rebook my 3rd leg after taking trains in the middle."
Pros: "Boeing 777 had a lot of space. Good legroom. Timely departure and arrival, hassle free, safe trip all the way. Enjoyed the red wine; very delicious!"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline. The entertainment unit was very difficult to dislodge and raise to use (We were in the front). Movies were kind of older ones but I had reading to do so entertainment wasn't that important."
Pros: "Was upgraded to Business class, so the food was acceptable. Comfort score also reflects the Business class seat. Cabin crew were friendly and efficient."
Cons: "One bag did not arrive in Toronto, apparently delayed in Paris."
Pros: "There were 4 of us flying from Atlanta, there was a great amount of leg room, tvs were nice, remote control for the tv fit into the seat, the way the plane was laid out, the 4 of us sat in a middle row, which meant no window seat (which my sister was disappointed), dinner options were great, wine was complementary"
Cons: "My only problem was that there wasn't any air flow and until someone told them how hot they think it is, it was a very sweaty situation. I couldn't sleep because of how hot it was and I didn't think to tell the crew because I didn't know they would care."
"It was cancelled and I was forced to buy another ticket."
Cons: "Exiting passengers from the rear exposed the entire flight as people had to walk past those seated from the back to front. Great social distancing and we'll done British Airways"
Pros: "My air hostess was very friendly and kind"
Cons: "Food for vegetarians"
Pros: "Crew amazing yes. Seat comfortable."
Cons: "None for now!"
Cons: "4 hs delay"
Cons: "No assistance to mothers with strollers. While boarding, picked a few people randomly to inspect our bags right before getting on a plane. Held us in a separate room including me who is single mother traveled with 2 year old for 3 flights in the row. My son didnt get his meal. Also had to ask for any juice. Horrible menu. Late food serving, but quick to clean up in a rash. Loud people on phones and nobody stopped them. Horrible experience."
Pros: "The crew members are super friendly and caring."
Pros: "The crew were very attentive and there was a large variety of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "I am not a heavy set guy but the seats were unreasonably close to each other, this meant that when you eat a meal your elbows push into your sides making it hard to bring food to your mouth."
Cons: "Very narrow seats"
Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "Nothing. Pretty good for a short trip."
Cons: "Better business class seats"
Cons: "Delayed, twice!"
Pros: "Pleasant staff, very poor entertainment systems, screens too small and kept needing to be reset."
Cons: "Poor entertainment systems Plane too cold Only 1 meal Ran out of gin for the second flight in a row"
Pros: "Friendly crew and a good value for money flight"
Cons: "Very bumpy ride but this wasn’t anyone’s fault"
Pros: "Service was excellent"
Cons: "Entertainment system getting a bit long in the tooth on 747. Hot breakfast could have done with some colour"
Pros: "BA in South Africa run a clean efficient airline. Planes are new crew well trained and food is good."
Cons: "Preseating totally random no matter your status. Booked state of my choice well in advance and was presented at the back of the plane on check-in"
Cons: "Flight was diverted for 4 hours due to thunderstorm in Toronto"
Pros: "The flight was delayed prior to leaving the gate, while lined up to take off and during the flight. All delays were promptly explained by members of the flight deck. The cabin crew were outstanding nothing seemed to be too much of a inconvenience to them."
Pros: "Plenty food. Very well looked after by the crew. Lots of good movies."
Cons: "Some of the screens had a scratches on them."
Pros: "Food and service great"
Pros: "No hassle with hand luggage"
Pros: "British Airways has definitely got their act together it was a brilliant flight and the service was excellent it was a pleasure to see."
Pros: "Plane kept to time schedule fabulous"
Cons: "Traveling economy"
Pros: "Crew, boarding process, food, cleanliness, movie choices were all good."
Cons: "There should still be more leg room in coach. The screen in just my seat had a "loose connection", as it was a bit blurry sometimes -- enough to be annoying, but I still watched a movie OK. No other screens around me had the problem; they were crystal-clear."
Pros: "Efficient processes. All went to plan"
Cons: "Tight seating. Old plane. Entertainment screen sub par"
Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding."
Cons: "The way that the crew (both in economy on right of plane) spoke to, and handled sensitive situations with several of the passengers in a loud and rather rude manner. This is not the British way that I have been accustomed to on previous BA flights, and is rather upsetting. The crew were very abrupt in general, and did not have that seasoned and polite demeanor which I expect from BA."
Pros: "food was excellent ... service is always top notch"
Pros: "Mediocre experience on the ground; much better in the air -- competent, pleasant cabin crew."
Cons: "It seems amazing to me that BA will leave 50 First and Business Class passengers standing in line while they pre-board "families with young children". Some of the families had children who were 7 or 8 years old and certainly had no need for pre-boarding; its just an opportunistic way of jumping the queue. Similarly, some of the "elderly" passengers who claim to need pre-boarding on departure spring to their feet and dash down the aisle on arrival. Air Canada boards Business Class first on this same route; I'm going to migrate back to them, as virtually everything else on the two flights is comparable."
Pros: "Only wish they would've put me on the direct flight"
Cons: "The transfer was a pain. Signage at Toronto Airport is non existent. I had to stop and ask people which way to go 3 times"
Cons: "No WIFI"
Pros: "Food, Movies Staff Treatment Aircraft: B787...quiet, new and clean Heathrow Terminal 5"
Pros: "Your staff were truly excellent, helpful and engaging."
Cons: "My TV worked only intermittently and I therefore could not relax and enjoy the entertainment..."
Pros: "Very good Premium Economy service. Comfortable seats and good food."
Cons: "Noise (crying babies) from the Economy section. Delay in departure."
Cons: "Couldn't take the flight because I was not allowed to check a bag. No mention of this was made when I booked."
Pros: "Good documentary films to choose from to pass time."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and roomy."
Pros: "Nothing. British Airways refused to help us"
Cons: "Took over two hours on the phone to try and get rebooked. Missed the last flight out of the night due to incompetence. British Airways desk check in staff was so rude, wouldn't even talk to us. Thank goodness for the helpful Air Canada grind crew in Toronto."
Pros: "Made up for time due to a big tail wind"
Cons: "Took off late and had to wait 45 minutes for luggage"
Pros: "Flew with partner Aer Lingus. Extremely comfortable, good food, good entertainment, great crew."
Pros: "Flight was on time,actually ahead of time."
Cons: "Aircon was not efficient. Very hot in the plane."
Pros: "Strong tailwind brought us in 30mins ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Nothing. Was a smooth and friendly flight. Cabin crew were courteous and efficient."
Pros: "great service - flight was smooth takeoff and landing"
Cons: "Took forever to serve cold drinks and food. Said we were going to have a short flight due to tail wind so they would not serve hot drinks. Mean while we landed at the expected time of arrival."
Cons: "They were awful"
Pros: "Fabulous experience on every level"
Pros: "That you could watch movies and shows from the headrest, very helpful to pass the time. They fed us a lot (very salty) and were very nice."
Cons: "I was in the back in the cheap seats (row 50) with a friend, we are both small to regular size and the guy seated in the aisle seat was very small and it was still difficult to get up and around each other to use the restroom. Oh well I paid $462 for round trip and arrived safely, that's what matters most."
Pros: "Staff are all great. No fuss and every thing on time."
Cons: "It's economy class and always cramped. Standards slipping in the toilets a little. Seats are getting worn. The entertainment choice could be better. Food quality has also gone down"
Pros: "I got upgraded which was a huge bonus and the staff were great and attentive."
