Cons: "No gate for departure or arrival. No business class longe in Cape Town."

Pros: "Crew AMAZING. Service was impeccable. Food and wine were interesting and varied. Absolutely amazing comfort."
Cons: "Media choices were not interesting to me. Used my own device instead."

Cons: "Not a lot other than better choice of movies and music. Super airline as always"

Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Firstly the flight was delayed, these things happen but nevertheless I end up missing my connecting Qatar flight to Belgrade, put into a horrible little hotel for 24hrs without my bag, no clothes or toiletries. At one point during the flight once everyone had their chairs reclined one hostess told me to not put mine so far back?!?! Then when asked well then person in front of me has to move theirs forward and her response no they don’t. Absolutely shocking. To think I wanted to upgrade to business class. I’m traveling the globe over the next year and thought let me try Qatar but never again with this type of service and how they treat their customers."

Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."

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

Cons: "Qatar Airways... Never to expect more"

Pros: "Good flights"
Cons: "Qatar Airways Maharjan lounge snack Restuarant service was not great. Boarding was very inconvenient in Doha using the bus. All the rest at Zurich and in flights was good."

Pros: "The plane was new and spotless, the crew did everything possible to make the flight great. Food service, and Wine and Cocktails were always served with a smiling face and it made you think of flying many years ago. Service cleanliness of the restrooms and staff were top notch"

Pros: "Behavior of the crews"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Extra baggage was charged $250 for 1 extra baggage when other airlines change $70. Also on the Qatar Airway site it states that after 3 hours of the flight if seats are available business class upgrade would cost much less and this was not the case. They wanted $2000 for the upgrade."

Pros: "The food and the crew were excellent. Highly recommend the chicken massals"
Cons: "The seats in economy class were a little too close for comfort"

Pros: "On our flight from Atlanta, we loved the service and great recommendations from the flight attendant, Carmen, who made great suggestions for our Malaysia trip."
Cons: "The seats were very tight and the food was okay, but the staff was great."

Pros: "very nice crew please have good dessert"

Pros: "Water bottle"
Cons: "There was no snack for the people that don't sleep, it's a long flight, I'd suggest instant noodle cups for those or chips or cookies (I know they hand them out maybe once, but maybe have it near the bathroom, so when people are hungry they don't have to bother the crew)."

Pros: "The cabin crew and Doha airport staff are absolutely great at thinking about customer comfort. Experienced it in the Business Class lounge as well as on the flight!"
Cons: "Could add paper towels to toilets. Tissues are too soft to wash up and dry hands and face!"

Pros: "The friendly hosting of the crew and the clean and tidy of everything the food was delicious hot and cean"

Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Flight was very comfortable and a pleasant ride"
Cons: "food service could be a bit more prompt"

Pros: "The crew on my side of the cabin was very good."
Cons: "Not having available air for the center seats made our flight a truly awful experience. The older style seats are actually more comfortable for taller and larger people. My wife was virtually ignored by the male crew on her side of the aircraft."

Cons: "Leg space in economic class is too less. No options in vegetarian food. They don't give you what you want."

Pros: "Service was excellent. Check in was efficient & welcoming. Staff was very friendly & helpful."

Pros: "I liked the organized boarding prosecution, everyone was seated by the boarding zone so there were no mess and no fight over who gets to go first in the plane. the food was good too, again vegetarian options and very good quality. I"

Pros: "my child was very sick on this flight and the air crew were very concerned and very helpful... i really appreciated all their concern and help. they consulted a doctor on the ground and provided the medicine and advice to bring my 3 year olds sickness under control... ( which included diarrhea and vomiting numerous times... please thank them for me... they were also concerned about her welfare after we would land.... thanks thanks thanks"

Cons: "It was all good"

Pros: "The crew were all lovely + meals were excellent."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Catering and seating. They ran out of food and drinks"

Cons: "Plane configuration; seats were a bit cramped, knee space."

Cons: "I checked in a couple of hours after checkin open but unfortunately I could not get my preferred window seat, got a middle instead. But still the leg room would have been ok but the middle seat (second row behind the bilkhead row) had the front passenger's entertainment system arranged across the footwell, not sideways, so it completely blocked the footwell and prevented any stretching of the legs. I am a tall passenger and this caused much discomfort on the flight, I had to keep getting up to walk around. I also found the seat bottom quite uncomfortable (not enough padding I think), butnghis could have been made worse by the footwell issue. Regards Neil"

Cons: ",also I had to wait for longer time again due to less people for wheel chair assist.."

Pros: "Amazing airline with excellent crew and ground staff ever willing to help!"

Pros: "Good spacing. comfy seats."
Cons: "Staff were just not aware of clients needs. walked passed without even glancing to see raised hands, etc"

Cons: "pizzaafan@yahoo.com"

Pros: "Movie selection was good."
Cons: "Everything else. Boarding was chaos, Ground crew should show authority while boarding passengers."

Cons: "Expect more then OK from Qatar."

Pros: "Please see above"
Cons: "Please see above"

Pros: "Crew was friendly. Flight left on time!!!!!! :)"
Cons: "Food was served too late. Unable to get a bottle of water as I was dehydrated."

Pros: "Qatar airways equipment very good."

Pros: "The staff was amazing! I started I get a headache- probably because of low blood sugar, and one of the attendant provided me with constant water, ginger ale, and chocolates. It was so sweet- she didn't have to make sure I was okay, but she chose to our the kindness of her heart!"
Cons: "The cramped quarters. I had a very tall person sit practically on my lap the entire flight, as he leaned his chair back the entire time. It left no room for me to use the table for my laptop. I was fortunate that no one sat next to me on my first flight, but for the second one I was not so lucky – so I couldn't work on my schoolwork."

Pros: "Qatar Airways is a nice airline and it's obvious they work on making your flight a pleasant experience with a lot of food, entertainment, etc"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 hours upon initially arriving to the airport. While it was important for me to be there when I found out this information because I needed to reschedule my connecting flightso due to the delay, this should not be required. Qatar Airways, knew the flight was going to be delayed at least 10 hours before they announced it. They should have already began the process of rescheduling connecting flights and figuring out problems before passengers arrive to the airport. I probably spent 45 minutes at the ticket counter working things out."

Pros: "The quality of service, food, plane and attention was superb."

Cons: "Plan was really cold then really hot, they just could not control the temp. They also just left my bag in Zanzinar!! They never but it on the plane, which of course you don't find out until you get to your final destination without a bag. I was disappointed in Qatar Airlines for this."

Pros: "Comfort plus is a nice upgrade"
Cons: "Having a clear gate to take advantage of being early."

Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "The economy seats in an A321 are uncomfortable and there is very limited legroom."

Cons: "I had a flight with a connection starting at 6 PM on a Monday. At 5 AM the day of the flight I received notification that the first flight would be delayed, making connection impossible, I was prompted to select another flight to arrive to my destination. I chose a flight with a connection staring at 7 PM. Upon getting on the first flight we began to prepare for takeoff. After about 30 minutes the pilot notified us that we would be delayed 40 minutes because we had nowhere to land at my connection airport. I realized at that point that I would possibly miss my connection, which was scheduled at 10:20 PM. However, I did arrive at the connection airport around 9:40 PM which would have given just enough time to arrive at the connection gate. Unfortunately, upon arrival to the connection airport the pilot informed us that we would have no gate to de-board the plane. The pilot stated that all connections "were aware of our delay" and gave us the gates for each connection. I got off the plane at 10:15 PM and ran to my connection gate arriving exactly at 10:20. The gate attendants informed me that my flight had left, my bags were on the way to my destination city and that I would need to spend the night in the connection city. The attendants, appeared disinterested and impolite but upon prompting provided us with a hotel voucher for the night. The next day we arrived at the airport 2 hours before boarding and waited at the gate. When it was near the time for departure we were informed that the plane had been downgraded and requests were made for some to give up their seats for a later flight or check carryon bags to make room for other passengers. While some lined up to give up their seats and bags, those who chose to remain on the original flight were forced to wait before boarding the plane. We were then told that we would have to wait until the pilot and crew arrived before boarding. Scheduled departure time was 5:46 PM but the time got pushed back until we boarded around 6:30, departure was rescheduled to 6:50 PM. We boarded the plane and waited for departure but a few minutes later the pilot informed us that "he just got here" and that there were mechanical problems that would cause further delay. After an hour we were informed that the plane was not able to fly and instructed to go to another gate for another plane. Departure time got rescheduled to 8:30 PM. The plane departed after 9 PM and arrived at 10:30 PM for a 5:46 PM scheduled departure."

Cons: "we boarded on time and were on tarmac for over an hour and a half with no explanation, no beverages."

Pros: "Crew ok ... not engaging"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Terrible flight experience from delta"

Cons: "The DCA airport was having some problem. 1.5 hours late. Not very good."

Pros: "Reliable Airline - on time - kept up to date on flight timing - Great crews."
Cons: "Good stuff."

Pros: "No delays. Easy boarding."

Pros: "Internet access. Waiting area at JFK with charging stations for every seat and a tablet to order food & drink."

Pros: "On time boarding. Good entertainment options, friendly staff"

Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "No idea why there was over a two hour delay."

Pros: "We were able to fly standby on our original 2:30p flight but had to return to DCA for checked baggages later that day"
Cons: "Connecting flight from JFK to DCA was moved from approx 2:30p to nearly 8p, making our layover 7+ hours, as opposed to 1-2 hours. No reason for this change was provided. Delta crew member in JFK was rude and unhelpful. The second agent (who ultimately booked our standby tickets for our original connecting flight) was more pleasant."

Pros: "The crew onboard was very good."
Cons: "My 4 year old daughter and I were not seated together and I was told that a 4year old could not sit alone yet Delta refused to move anyone. Instead I had to get on board and beg someone to please wait h seats with us."

Pros: "The service, free entertainment."

Pros: "Early boarding for Seniors"
Cons: "Limited food"

Cons: "There was no rhyme nor reason for who boarded first"

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "AC was not working properly and it was very hot and miserable trip"

Pros: "Great service by gate operators."
Cons: "TSA process"

Pros: "Staff tried to be helpful"
Cons: "Silly series of events. Maintenance problem before flight left previous city, got to us and we boarded only to deplane for more repairs. Ended up with another plane, five hours later. For a 44 min flight. Would’ve been easier to drive!"

Cons: "There really needs to be a way the airlines can better make seating assignments. I was in a window seat and the woman in the middle seat was so large that her arms took all of the arm rest and some of my seat area. Even crossing my arms I was unable to not have her arm up against me."

Pros: "Thanks to Angel in the ATL airport who helped ensure I had a more comfortable flight. He was very kind and I appreciated his help."

Cons: "Disgusting smell to urine and else. It was a two-hour bad experience"

Pros: "I will always fly Delta. I have tried other airlines and they don't conmpare to Delta's service"

Pros: "Nothing!!"
Cons: "Delta is terrible!!! $100 extra for everything!!! Terrible!!"

Cons: "The seat I was assigned did NOT recline !!! I have neck and back problems and I was in so much pain. You need to clearly indicate when a seat does not recline ( as in exit row seats, which are clearly indicated)."

Pros: "The movie availability was very much appreciated."
Cons: "Although my TSA Pre check number was on my flight coming into Atlanta, it wss not on my fight leaving Atlanta. That caused me to arrive at my gate 5 mins before boarding time and prevented me from having time to eat breakfast before my flight."

Pros: "Easy boarding, not a full flight, had plenty of room to stretch out, friendly flight crew, extra snacks!"
Cons: "Not much to say I didn't like, few problems with in-flight WiFi but otherwise good."

Cons: "Being late"

Pros: "Hartsfield rental car train broke so it made me miss my original flight to DCA. Delta ticket agents rebooked me w/no problem and could not have been nicer or more professional. Thank you Delta, you are my hero! Hartsfield Airport, not so much."

Pros: "Delta captain was very personable, kept us up to date when a slight delay was necessary."
Cons: "It took over 20 minutes to check our bags. Given that we paid $150 to "upgrade" to Economy Comfort for a ONE HOUR flight, it would have been nice if DAL enabled us to check in with Sky Priority."

Pros: "I really enjoyed the just a little bit larger seats, extra leg room, and the ability to watch a movie on a screen that wasn't my iphone 6 screen."
Cons: "It would be nice to have gluten-free snack options on the flight, since I have to be gluten-free."

Cons: "The plane was late to JFK and then we had to wait for them to deboard and prepare for us to get one. Now we are in DCA and we can’t even get to our gate for another 10 mins"

Pros: "Allowed Pre boarding of infant (which American no longer does), complimentary food, entertainment on domestic flight, and friendly staff. Delta is upping the game!"

Pros: "The flight was uneventful and although we took off late, we arrived on-time."
Cons: "The rows of seats are so tight that when the big guy in the seat in front of me leaned back (not even putting his seat back) his seat banged into my knees. A combination of cheap seats and too many seats. Made for a very uncomfortable flight."

Cons: "No entertainment. Wifi didn't work."

Pros: "Flight"
Cons: "no access to sky club"

Pros: "Good food and entertainment choices on board. Little to no feedback from captain regarding inflight turbulence."
Cons: "Getting through security at the LAX Delta Terminal 2 was chaotic and the slowest I have ever encountered. There were two lines which moved at very different speeds. My husband got through his line 15min before I was finished in the other line. One line required iPads to be other, the other didn't. Something was seriously wrong with how things were being handled. Bathrooms onboard were a pigstie."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The cost of the ticket"

Cons: "Flight delayed due to weather and mechanical.. nightmare! Still not sure when I'll get to DCA . I was suppose to get in at 9:30 pm. Flight from atlanta won't leave until 10:20 pm."

Cons: "Delayed"

Cons: "Cancelled my flight then re-booked me for the next day; was able to then find a flight same day but 7 hours later. That then was delayed another 4 hours and I had to buy a rental car to drive home instead. Thus far they have been unresponsive in getting me a refund for my travel. Don't fly Delta."

Pros: "On time...great service!"
Cons: "Seats were a bit narrow."

Cons: "Too many boarding calls for different levels of service."

Pros: "delayed. equipment failure."

Pros: "Timely departure."
Cons: "My daughter was traveling alone (as a college freshman) for the second time and her bag was overweight. The counter agent was impatient with her and made her feel embarrassed"

Pros: "The Delta staff at the Marine terminal at La Guardia were fantastic and saved the staff that re-issued tickets at JFK."
Cons: "5 minutes until boarding at JFK we were told to transfer gates; upon arriving by shuttle to the new gate, passengers were informed the aircraft was downsized and 20 people needed to be bumped. I volunteered since I had a flexible schedule so Delta re-issued me a ticket at 9am JFK for a 10am flight out of La Guardia. I trusted them I'd make it in time and they said they called taxis for us so we left to go catch them. Actually, no taxis were to be found so we had to call our own and were significantly delayed. I was in the first group of 5 people to be re-issued and arrive at La Guardia. Everyone else bolted but my new boarding pass didn't work and they actually didn't properly re-issue my ticket as I had been booked as leg 3 of my international flight from Malaysia. After they called three different departments including China they were able to print my ticket at 9:54am so I sprinted through the security and to my gate and was able to somehow make the flight as they were closing the door. However probably 14 or so of the original bumped passengers definitely didn't make it."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "plane left on time"
Cons: "seats were too close, luggage was delayed,"

Cons: "I had paid for an upgrade to sit in the front of the cabin with extra legroom (row 14A). When I boarded a man sat it my seat. He had not paid for the upgrade, but the crew let him stay in my seat. I had asked him to social distance but he continued to sit right behind me bo matter which seat I moved to. He argued with the crew until they gave up and let him stay. They did not check his boarding pass or ask him to move to his assigned seat I found a different seat away from him but I don’t see the point in paying for extra legroom when the crew let’s people who haven’t paid for it sit it those seats. I felt harassed by the man and was very uncomfortable the whole flight. I am considering my next step, I think I should at least receive a refund for the upgrade I paid for."

Pros: "The seats were so comfortable"

Cons: "The only complaint I had was that it was very warm on the flight (and I usually get cold on flights), and in the seats we had there weren't fans above the seats. A few rows up they had fans, so apparently you have to pay extra for air... This wouldn't be a big deal on a short domestic flight, but for an international flight it was a long time to be uncomfortable!"

Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"

Pros: "Flight arrived on time"
Cons: "No food provided "due to a strike the previous day". Not sure why this would impact on providing a sandwich or snack particularly when champagne was still available for first class passengers."

Pros: "Good amount of space on the plane, lots of movies to watch, good food and drink."

Pros: "Customer care was super supportive"
Cons: "Inflight sandwiches"

Pros: "Great airline"

Pros: "very nice crew"
Cons: "my baggage was lost"

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: "Fix the damn KIOSKS at Vienna!"

Pros: "Seats super comfy. Ended up with 3 seats to myself that formed a bed for the lap Uk to NZ. Very nice!"

Cons: "Too hot inside the aircraft"

Pros: "the drinks"
Cons: "seat reservation. having to pay for 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: "Being fed was amazing and watching free TV was great!"
Cons: "I wish there were personal fans because it got uncomfortably hot sandwiched between people"

Pros: "Nice seats. Only seats with a row of 2, which is what I wanted,"

Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "Seat confort on long flights, leg rooms,"

Pros: "The crew!!"

Cons: "Turn the lights on early making it hard to sleep"

Pros: "Best airline in the business quick efficient and outstanding service What else can you say"

Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "Service was poor, seat did not recline, and the food was terrible."

Cons: "My suitcase didn't come with the airline."

Pros: "Crew was great, very nice"
Cons: "Not enough legroom"

Pros: "The flight to Gdansk took off and arrived on-time and the staff were professional."
Cons: "The flight to Amsterdam from Gdansk was late and I had to RUN to the connecting gate. 50 minutes is NOT ENOUGH time to go through passport control."

Cons: "Nothing good to say about this flight. The plane was old with no entertainment. The sits where very compact and not comfortable at all. The food was a sweet bread and water. The flight attendants were rushing and will take a while if you needed anything. I felt like I was taking a bus with graffiti all over the place."

Pros: "We were fed a nice pasta meal and offered drinks twice. They also gave a muffin for desert. The flight attendants were very nice and attentive with cheerful smiles. I wish every airline had service this good!"

Cons: "We did not get two of baggage at the destination."

Pros: "We got a meal for a 1h flight only"
Cons: "No entertainment but normal for this type of flight"

Pros: "Food was just fine, movie selection very good"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat cushions, lights were truned on too early (1.5 hours before flight landed)"

Pros: "The staff was extremely pleasant. Food was good!"
Cons: "Have no complaints"

Cons: "At some point the luggage was lost. here."

Cons: "It was announced I can choose between fish and chicken meal but when I requested for fish meal, I was told it’s finished. My seat was 21, and it surprised me. If something can be changed about that then your services would be much appreciated. Thank you."

Pros: "The supplied pack of toothpaste/toothbrush"

Cons: "Flight way delayed 3 hours. Staff gave no information and wouldn't help rebook us onto other flights. They gave us food vouchers 2 minutes before we finally boarded, so we couldn't use them. The food on the plane had spoiled so we were all starving on the flight, and we all missed our connections. Horrible experience and wouldn't fly with KLM again."

Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "The pilot kept us informed periodically during our journey. I liked that we could choose our seating online. The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The plane was dirty, all seats did not have pillows and blankets. Seating was not very comfortable, particularly as there was a box attached to one of the legs of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to move my legs to an uncomfortable angle."

Pros: "The crew were pleasant"

Pros: "Arriving more or less on time"
Cons: "Crew is awful. Disrespectful desinterested in customers find themselves very important. No service mentality whatsoever. No respectful airline would hire such arrogant self centered personalities in a service role"

Pros: "Easy airport business"

Pros: "Staff superb. They even surprised us with an exit row and a gift for my partners birthday! Amazing. Samantha and Dennis also took time to come and personally wish him a happy birthday. A lovely touch. This airline runs like clockwork. They are just great. The sandwich and stoop waffle are nice too."
Cons: "There is a bus to the plane, so that takes a bit of extra time but they are very well organized."

Pros: "Flight was efficient enough and staff were friendly."
Cons: "It was delayed quite a bit and more on-time updates would have been appeciated."

Pros: "Efficiency and speed of boarding was acceptable. I have no complaints about that aspect. The Comfort+ seats were worth the upgrade, pretty comfortable and reasonable legroom unless you have a big carry on stowed under the seat in front of you."
Cons: "The first announcement they made to all of us in the economy section was thay they did not have any headphones for anyone but business class. I was told when I booked the seat that the headphones would be complementary. So I did not bother to bring any assuming they were going to keep their word; I figure I'd make it work and watch a movie without sound. If that isn't bad enough midway through my nine hour flight my monitor went out and would not turn back on."

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: "Loads of leg room"
Cons: "Loved everything"

Pros: "Good and plenty of food available."
Cons: "No power to charge phones, laptops, etc and no WiFi available. For such a long trip (10 hours) below industry standard."

Pros: "KLM fed a sandwich even though the flight was only 2 hours. The crew was pleasant. Getting through the Amsterdam airport to catch a connecting flight with only an hour to do so was no big deal. Airport staff was pleasant and helpful."

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"

Cons: "Did not get the luggage from connecting flight from Amsterdan to Basel"

Pros: "Good flight, we got a nice snack despite it being a short flight, the staff was great."

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"

Cons: "I really did not find anything to improve, it was a pleasant flight"

Pros: "My air hostess was very friendly and kind"
Cons: "Food for vegetarians"

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 flight was on time and landed early"
Cons: "The bags could have come out earlier and the food could be better"

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"

Cons: "Seating is a big problem. I am only 192 cm tall and cannot really fit my legs into the space. Have them out in the corridor"

Cons: "Ba got me too late to terminal to catch connecting flight to lax on air NZ"

Pros: "That the flight was on time."
Cons: "not applicable."

Cons: "Seat was broken. Reclines without requesting. Tray also needs attention. Seat 15C"

Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "Nothing. Pretty good for a short trip."

Cons: "Better business class seats"

Cons: "Delayed, twice!"

Pros: "Friendly crew, new release films"
Cons: "Quicker boarding and better food"

Pros: "Crew were very good"
Cons: "Poor entertainment system"

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: "Fast onboarding, quick flight, travel agent went above and beyond fixing my ticket"
Cons: "My ticket had to be reissued and I was the last one to board the plane."

Pros: "Friendly crew and a good value for money flight"
Cons: "Very bumpy ride but this wasn’t anyone’s fault"

Cons: "Lunch was adequate but evening meal was half a sandwich"

Cons: "Tough time. British airways wasn’t very helpful. Once our gate was changed no one told us or gave new boarding pass. We did have 7 hours to figure it out. But a clue where to go would have been nice. Missed my connection. Shuttle and hotel was a mess. Got a few hours of sleep outside the airport. Maybe I’ll get to Los Angeles soon."

Cons: "Comfortable all crew very helpful and polite"

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"

Pros: "The BA crew made every effort to insure a comfortable overnight flight. The crew were attentive in roaming without being intrusive. They seemed well drilled in serving on a red eye flight."

Pros: "We landed at Heathrow. It too 30 minutes to get off the plane. We parked on the tarmac and had to ride a shuttle to the terminal. There was no time to get through security and make our flight. WE have sat through on stand by for 2 flights. It is not promising that we will get to Paris as scheduled."
Cons: "No too happy right now."

Pros: "No hassle with hand luggage"

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."

Cons: "Business class configuration on BA 777"

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: "Crew was great, despite issues with our Tv issue, the challenging woman behind me."
Cons: "The TVs in our row went dead 2.5 hrs into the flight. I have a 2.5 year Old traveling with me, this was a challenge to maintain sanity for another 7 hours. Additionally the lunatic behind me didn’t know how to get out of her seat or eat or let her neighbor out when my seat was reclined. She also got up out of he seat during taxi causing the flight attendants to get up to address her."

Pros: "Made up for time due to a big tail wind"
Cons: "Took off late and had to wait 45 minutes for luggage"

Pros: "Flight was on time,actually ahead of time."
Cons: "Aircon was not efficient. Very hot in the plane."

Pros: "the crew was awesome!"
Cons: "the loading process was terrible, very crowded and slow"

Cons: "The BA crew was awful. I was not feeling well and wanted a cup of tea. I didn't realize you had to purchase it. I gave a member of the crew my credit credit card she said out loud "your card is declined" several people heard and then proceeded to hand me my card and walked away. I was mortified. I, of course thinking my bank had put a hold on my account because I was outside the US, called them to find out why it was declined and was told they had no idea and they did even see the $2.00 charge go through and therefore it wasn't declined on the bank's end. The way she handled it was awful, no discretion. I was visibly ill and just needed something warm to help me feel better. Needless to say I will never fly BA again and will let my company know how I was treated."

Pros: "Timely boarding and arrival. Friendly service."
Cons: "The entertainment was not really good - very few movie options. Food was so-so, not really anything as good as it can be."

Pros: "Strong tailwind brought us in 30mins ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Nothing. Was a smooth and friendly flight. Cabin crew were courteous and efficient."

Cons: "Was given the wrong flight information. The email I received the day of the flight was incorrect and now I have no way of getting to Bergen until tomorrow. I am forced to spend the night in London. This is inexcusable."

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."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "They were awful"

Pros: "Everything was ok."
Cons: "Delay."

Pros: "Just generally BA. Used to be the prime airline to travel with"
Cons: "No entertainment on the flight. No complimentary food or drink for 4 hrs flight and charging the customers a lot of money. not really worth the money."

Pros: "The flight was just OK."
Cons: "We were cold throughout the flight and the crew never came by to ask if we were comfortable."

Pros: "After my last experience with WOW from Baltimore to Amsterdam, which was easily my worst flying experience, British Airways was just the opposite. On time, comfortable seats, polite and very helpful flight attendants, and I did not have to pay 2 Euros just for a glass of water. I will fly British Airways again."

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"

Cons: "Old planes, disinterested crew, full flight"

Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable and cramped"

Cons: "It could have been cleaner. I wiped the arm rest with my disinfectant wipes and that arm rest was dirty! I wiped everything else around me. Not clean at all"

Cons: "Sat on tarmac for over 40 min waiting for gate"

Cons: "The attendants attitude."

Cons: "Once again.... too much advertisement!!!! I just want to enjoy my vacation."

Pros: "Video screens at each seat"

Pros: "The seat wasn’t very comfortable"

Cons: "It was hot"

Cons: "Didn’t get my whole can of soda and pretzels are cardboard."

Cons: "Wifi didn’t work."

Cons: "Nothing, great job"

Cons: "O prematurely had to check my carry on when there was room to bring it on board with me"

Cons: "Excelente"

Cons: "The gate attendant was very hard to understand and so I couldn’t hear what she was saying."

Pros: "na"
Cons: "AA has a tendency of delaying flights."

Cons: "The wifi was out so I was unable to do what I needed to do and I was unable to stream music"

Cons: "Overheads slammed full."

Cons: "The airline"

Pros: "Everything BUT the ticket agent"
Cons: "Key West Ticket agent who also did double duty as boarding agent was so rude and condescending to everyone. Very short and impatient. Speaking to us like we were all idiots. Employees like him give flying a bad rap."

Pros: "It was quick."
Cons: "Flying these days is no better than taking a local bus."

Pros: "On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Hard landing!"

Pros: "Son flew alone and everyone was very helpful."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The food was cold and and had no taste."

Pros: "."
Cons: "."

Cons: "Nickel and diming people for every little thing. I didn't mean to select a paid seat upon making my reservation on-line, and I couldn't get it to come off. Had to pay anyway."

Pros: "Very helpful and kind staff. Everything was on time and made for a great travel experience."

Cons: "The aircraft was hot. Barely any A/C. It felt like 78 degrees. Uncomfortably hot."

Pros: "Good meals"
Cons: "Not much legroom. Good movie shown but would have like personal options like other airlines."

Pros: "Quick boarding and luggage pickup."
Cons: "Mediocre staff. In my experience United is more friendly and welcoming."

Pros: "Small airport"
Cons: "Service and flexibility, needed to call online for assistance"

Cons: "ATC delay on take off and then a 10 min wait for a gate a DCA. Just disappointing in adding delays."
