Have to stand 1 + hours to board, very crowded gate

Pros: "The whole Business experience on SQ"
Cons: "During the same trip I discovered 2 different arrangements of the Business Class cabin on Singapore Airlines A350, SQ469 CMB-SIN, and SQ036 SIN-LAX. On the SQ036, I occupied seat 15 A (mono, aisle-window): I did not understand the reasoning behind this layout: Seat facing straight the front of the aircraft, but not enough space to stretch the legs, and limited height for the footrest, feet getting hurled against a ceiling very quickly, and also footrest only on one side = one foot. The deep cavity, that is probably meant to house the lie-flat disposition, is at a 45° angle with the general direction of the seat. I am 77 and not in any way a contortionist. I decided that the best course of action was to remain seated for the duration of the 14:30 hours, flight without extending my legs. Maybe the crew could have explained how the passenger is supposed to fit into that weird design, but I did not ask, afraid that the demonstration might reawaken chronic shoulder and hip pain. I would be glad to read (not test) how this configuration is supposed to convey the sense of comfort expected from a Business Class ticket. It did nothing of the kind for me."

Cons: "Really crowded seats in economy."
Pros: "wide seats. great service. on time."
Cons: "food was not as good as one would expect."
Cons: "Boarding at Singapore airport was shocking, as we had to wait 6 hours for our flight. Rating low to the crew mainly because of the ground staff as they were not very communicative to begin with about the explanation for our delay. Only when the passengers got a bit more vocal about wanting explanations, they started giving us a bit more information. All estimated times given for boarding the flight were incorrect by a big margin! Seemed more like they were giving shorter wait time for boarding just to please the passengers, where as they were well aware of how long the wait would be."
Pros: "the first class seats from HK to SFO, IFE, service, dom perignon, red wine, excellent attention, greeted personally by four of flight team, provided flight details personally. Im 6'0" so the bed was a little short. it was simply a wonderful experience."
Cons: "the IFE is not touch screen and pausing on the hand held was fidgety, but a huge 24 inch screen and beautiful."
Pros: "Service was nice."
Cons: "Comparing to recent businesses class flight on Emirates; Singapore airlines seat does not recline to flat bed. Boarded flight st 11pm and arrived at Singapore at 7am. Toiletries like tooth brush and paste, razor etc. were not provided. Emirates provides, so we did not pack in-flight."
Pros: "Service from Singapore airlines"
Pros: "Can't think of. We have been using Singapore Air for years and they were good. However, our recent few flights with them have been disappointing (hence the need for this review) - there's nothing to be happy about."
Cons: "Writing on behalf of my wife. All staff that she met have sour face, perhaps to signal the passengers not to approach them? True enough, the cabin crew did not help her to place her bag in the luggage compartment; the cabin crew did not serve water when requested, and on second attempt, the cabin crew told her to request at the ground. The cabin crews she has encountered clearly expressed their unwillingness to serve with their face and action. Is this the new direction of Singaore Air? The entertainment system requires installation of an app, hence is practically useless since we do not have the app preinstalled in our device."
Pros: "Very friendly crew & modern aircraft"
Pros: "I traveled Premium Economy. It was well worth the extra cost over regular Economy. The food was great, the crew was great, the flight was very comfortable."

Pros: "Clean ,on time"
Cons: "The movies were not updated"
Pros: "Excellent service, food, in-flight entertainment (what choices!!), and the plane was very up to date as well. Made for a very very pleasant flight experience. Especially for how long the flight was (18 hours or so)"
Cons: "The get out and get back in halt at Hong Kong. Practically the entire flight had to do this, quite wasteful. Bad customer experience. Find a better way please! If Hong Kong makes you do that switch over to another airport, better yet make no halt. I have flown direct from SF to Singapore before so not sure why this halt."
Pros: "The crew, the food and the comfort was fantastic. I was in economy and even with a full flight I was still comfortable."
Cons: "It would have been nice if wifi was free considering it was such a long flight"
Pros: "Service was good, but then that's expected."
Cons: "Leg room was bad... The foot rest attached to the seat in front of me kept lowering itself on its own."

Cons: "All"
Pros: "The food, the seating, the upgrade, the very polite and attentive staff. I thanked them, and for that, they gave me a hand written note and a set of cards. So sweet. Totally worth it to fly Singapore."
Cons: "I didn't like how Vayasan and Singapore airlines telephone check in both claimed they could not upgrade. It was part of the policy/seating I bought. They were wrong, the airlines at San Francisco airport did it without blinking, after checking my visa status."

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."

I got a stewardess to help her. She had gone through 3 boarding pass checks and was still on the wrong flight. They let her fly!"
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"

Cons: "Next time I will fly business class for more space and comfort."

Cons: "Just had a hard time finding flight attendants. Every time I went to the back of the plane, half a dozen of them were sitting around and chatting it up. Felt guilty for asking for water. Not the service that I expected from Qatar Airways. All 4 flights were a struggle to get proper service."
Cons: "I had a carry on plus a laptop bag. On the website they say you are allowed to carry a personal item such as handbag or a laptop bag along with the carry on piece. This guy at Nagpur airport says the weight of both these combined should be under 15 lbs. are you kidding me?"

Cons: "Nothing!"
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."

Pros: "Great on board bar"
Pros: "Timely response on the phone."
Cons: "Timely response on the phone."
Cons: "It was all good"
Pros: "Very friendly online travel booking portal. I like it"
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"
Pros: "Boeing 787 with comfortable seats and large dimmable windows; handed out menus and two meals served; nice crew."
Cons: "The 787 entertainment system seems buggier than that on the A380—possibly an older system?"
Pros: "The flight crew was polite. The plane was clean and comfortable. The food was well timed and delicious. They explained everything in full, and were extremely apologetic when there was one short delay. All of my planes were for the most part well timed (we had one short delay)"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I am platinium and got treated that way!!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were courteous and helpful, the flight left on time and even arrived early"
Cons: "Seat 10H, the transition from coach to business class could be designed a little better so the service carts don't hit the seat occupant when they move between cabins"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Entertainment. Not all films have subtitle"
Pros: "The plane was neat, clean and the services was world class. I was made to feel at home with service always at my finger tips."
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Pros: "Great Crew, seat space was great too"
Cons: "The cabin sound proofing can be improved. Especially the clicity clack from passengers eating. The pre boarding space was very limited."
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: "Excellent meals (3) and great service. Efficient minimal layover in Qatar."
Cons: "Coach seating on the plane from Nairobi to Qatar, for 5+ hour flight, very tight and cramped. Coach seating on flight from Qatar to NY was slightly bigger but not as spacious as coach seating on China Southern."
Pros: "I love the help given by ground crew in KLIA upon arrival. The crew waiting at the exit gate to make my transit quick and easy. The staff took me right to the flight gate, issue me the boarding past without me spending time to locate the transfer counter.. It was hassle free. Bravo! Please keep it up with this excellent service"
Cons: "The vegetarian food, noodle with bamboo shoot was too salty and plain."
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."

Lots of delays. Armrests are not big enough for two people.

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"
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."

Pros: "On time boarding. Good entertainment options, friendly staff"
Cons: "Seats could’ve been assigned ahead of time"
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"
Pros: "The efficiency of having my boarding pass on my phone (Apple Wallet). The Kayak and Delta apps streamlined perfectly and I was able to check in and pay for luggage through Kayak! I just need to do better at checking my phone due to both apps sending me updates about flight delays and luggage locations"
Cons: "Lack of space from being confined to the middle seat but the passengers next to me were nice and the plane ride was over before I realized it."
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"
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: "The free small meals are a nice touch. Everything was great. The flight was on time and lived up to my expectations for the best US airline."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants didn’t seem super happy. Not much to complain about on this flight."
Pros: "Arrived safely"
Cons: "Crew arrived late from Buffalo (?!?!) so our 7:59 flight didn’t start boarding until very close to that time. That delay, as Delta well knows, dominoed into LGA’s ATC issues and resulted in an arrival at DCA well after our scheduled arrival."
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."
Pros: "The seats."
Cons: "In typical Delta fashion they boarded, deplane, board it again and then beat the plane. Blamed it on weather even though a full maintenance crew was beneath the plane in the entire time and, for the coup de gras moved a new flight an hour later 30 gate down. Classic Delta hopefully they'll be out of business in a year"
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!!"
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."
Cons: "Being late"
Pros: "Service of all the flight staff, smooth flight, and early arrival. Staff was very courteous and helpful"
Cons: "Nothing really. It was an uneventful flight with good service"
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!"
Cons: "Flight was late by almost 2 hours!!!"
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: "left on time - landed early. Gate checked my luggage for me."
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."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Employees at the Atlanta airport have a SERIOUS chip on their shoulders. Just when you thought seats couldn't get any smaller or closer together. Paid for priority boarding but the boarding pass still said zone 3. Employees could care less."
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: "I was delayed coming from an international flight and was so thankful for the help from delta at the counter and at the gate. I did lose my bag but that was my fault in the confusion of jfk. I got my bag in 2 days."
Cons: "When i got my bag back the handle wouldn't go down fully. Baggage handlers must've mishandled it and bent something."
Pros: "On time...great service!"
Cons: "Seats were a bit narrow."
Pros: "delayed. equipment failure."
Cons: "Nothing"

Nice steady flight, on time, enjoyed the complementary snack and drink. Good work KLM

Pros: "So rude crew"
Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was amazing"
Pros: "Crew is excellent, polite and personal!"
Cons: "Plane is super old and outdated. Comfort seat is not, comfortable, very tight. TV screen is not good quality, with the old controls on a handset. No touch, no 1/8 inch audio jack (it has the old 3 holes one). Wifi for streaming freezes every other second. Just make a face lift to the plane, everything else is good."
Cons: "When a bought my ticket, I had asked in the office about WiFi. They told me that you have WiFi on the plane. I had checked this information on KLM.com and saw the same, that you have WiFi. This was the reason, why a chose KLM! Then I tried to connected on board but I couldn’t! WiFi was not available. Crew told me that they don’t know anything about it! I was disappointed and angry."
Pros: "KLM are our airline of choice. A great full-service carrier with impecable standards."
Cons: "Nothing"
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: "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...."
Cons: "This return flight was much better than the flight going to Amsterdam. I believe the biggest factor was the type of aircraft. The old 747 just didn't meet expectations. The newer 777 on the way back was much more comfortable, with better amenities."
Pros: "The space at my feet with the chair in front was a bit akward."

Pros: "More than adequate room, And very good service from a very professional staff. Head and shoulders abovevany American carrier, and several European lines I have flown."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Cons: "Our total flight time was about 17 hours - MAD- AMS-LAX. My husband and I both have an internationally approved carry on luggages with us. When we checked in - they asked us to both check in our carry on luggage. The reason why is because they said they don’t think they have enough space for our carry ons. I told the crew member checking us in that other people that was checking in with the same hand carry size luggage with us had no problems taking it with them. For being about to be on a 17 HOUR FLIGHT we should be ALLOWED to have our carry ons with us! We take carry ons for that reason! I had to argue and prove my case to the crew member to atleast keep 1 carry on with us. I thought that was an UNACCEPTABLE reason for us to check in a carry on luggage when we had a 17 hour travel time ahead of us. Not a happy costumer here."
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: "Overall everything was ok."
Cons: "Not that I cared at the time but having been asked for a rating on “entertainment” - there was none. Cheap and cheerful really. No extras over the likes of RyanAir."
Cons: "Actually the Welcome on board announcement. The part where they special welcome loyalty program members. I do not get that... I am an explorer holder my self, but really?? so other paying customers are not as welcome. This is leftovers from the older days.."
Cons: "After more than two hours of delay... Initially the flight takes off was at 8:35... Then 21:20... Then 21:50... Then 22:10. Finally we took off at 22:40... Refund our money klm..."
Pros: "Good information and helpfil boarding."
Cons: "Has to wait in confined area fir nearly 2 hrs before boarding. No restroom or refreshments within that area."
Cons: "Bit cramped for space"
Pros: "Bording was good and general flight ok"
Cons: "This airplane must be the oldest in the fleet. No USB, no charging, no touchscreen technology, no plugs, no bluetooth."
Pros: "Pleasant flight"
Cons: "Amesterdam airport employee was really rude"
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."
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"
Pros: "Staff both at the airport and in the plane were professional and welcoming. Depsite short distance sandwich and drink were offered."
Cons: "Nothing to be honest . All positive."
Cons: "Service from airline host Poorly maintained plane Bad food Old entertainment"
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: "No chargers or tv on planes"
Cons: "At Amsterdam we were told that our checkin luggage wouldn't be at Sydney!! Some low fat meals were terrible!"
Pros: "Everytime she passed she was hitting me or I had to hold my drink so that she wouldn't knock it off"
Cons: "The fact that there are different airline carriers for one flight is hard. In my second flight they made me check a bag which was considered a carry on during my first flight"
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: "Boarding was smooth and hassle free, crew were friendly and helpful, food and drinks were very good, entertainment system is awesome and up to date with latest contents, good flight overall"
Cons: "Cabin noise and air conditioning too cold, didn't sleep well"
Cons: "I slept didn't have snack offered and no entertainment"
Pros: "...The transfer at JFK was terrible"
Pros: "Delays and no proper customer service."

Delay. Long wait in line. Poor communications.

On my flight from Cape Town to London I was not notified that the flight had changed and missed the flight. British Airways would not help with a different flight and basically said I need to buy another ticket and fight for a refund. I need to speak with someone to get this resolved and reimbursed for the additional ticket I had to buy along with extra COVID tests I had to take, not to mention additional hotel stay and missed income from work. Please contact me as soon as possible.

It was cancelled and I was forced to buy another ticket.

Disembarking much better and safer when controlled by flight attendant

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."
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Great job"
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"
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."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Crews service"
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: "The crew was outstanding. They were regularly passing by with water & juice throughout the flight and were very friendly. A+ Also notably, they kept the cabin comfortable instead of the sweat lodge from my previous flight."
Cons: "I get that it’s Heathrow and not BA, but the random extra inspection process is super annoying. Nothing happens while you’re waiting in the terminal, then they pull you aside from group 2 as you board and before you know it you’re boarding back in group 5. If security used the time wisely, they could check 10x more people and not screw up the boarding process."
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 delayed and caused me to miss connection. The flight from Edinburgh to London is only an hour. This became a disaster for travel all day."
Pros: "I was fasting for Ramadan so I didn’t try the food, the crew members were as nice as can be for BA"
Cons: "The seats were really tight The Boeing was super packed with passengers and the seats were more on the mini size"
Pros: "Almost everythibg was great"
Cons: "The screen wasnt working properly"
Pros: "No hassle with hand luggage"
Pros: "Loads of leg room. Comfy."
Cons: "No food, no hold luggage allowance. Online checkin process is clunky and buggy."
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: "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: "The crew on the flight was pleasant."
Cons: "The flight was over an hour late off the ground and we’d held up in the air for another 1/2 hour. Connections missed, very disappointed."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food, artificial not tasty"
Pros: "Quickly loaded full, huge plane. Excellent demeanor from stewards. Seats very comfortable in econ class. Were as on time as they could be. Superfast deplaning. Couldn't be happier."
Cons: "Not a thing"
Pros: "Boarding was easy."
Cons: "My flight was delayed after we were already on the plane. We weren’t offered any complimentary snacks or beverages, most likely because it was a “short 2 1/2 hour flight.” Flight took longer than originally stated."
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: "Strong tailwind brought us in 30mins ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Nothing. Was a smooth and friendly flight. Cabin crew were courteous and efficient."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, gracious and helpful. Adequate space for my knees."
Cons: "I was in the middle seat, but surprisingly didn't feel too squished on this relatively short flight. I don't remember receiving food which means that it was neither good nor bad enough for me to think about it."
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: "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 generally fly business or first but not this flight I felt like we were treated like we were in first class the attendants was great. Really great. I became a believer in British on this flight!"
