Airline reviews

Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"

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

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."

Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"

Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."

Cons: "Internet connection from Doha wasn't there,"

Pros: "Yes overall probably the best flight to Chennai from DC"

Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"

Pros: "Too crowded"
Cons: "One more staff will be better"

Pros: "Crew excellent"
Cons: "Baggage collection at Washington could be improved"

Pros: "Awesome leg room in economy. Helpful staff."
Cons: "Main courses weren’t all the great."

Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."

Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."

Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."

Pros: "Staff was great"

Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."

Pros: "Qatae Airways is second to non as always"

Pros: "Service, entertainment, crew were all excellent!"
Cons: "Flight length"

Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"

Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."

Pros: "Good service but need to improve food quality and quantity."

Pros: "Cabin crew including the ground staff were awesome in providing best of its class customer service. Food and entertainment onboard was really good."

Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"

Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."
Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."

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

Pros: "Unfortunately..."
Cons: "...as mentioned, I don't have the pleasure of rating this flight because of the boarding delays and missing the flight. Very disappointing."

Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"

Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable for economy class for a journey as long as these ."

Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."

Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"

Pros: "Service is fantastic. Comfort in business class. Great food. You can't ask for nothing better. The lounge in Doha is breath taking."

Pros: "Same"
Cons: "I understand it's the industry standard, but seats are too narrow with shared armrests."

Pros: "Great service and food."

Pros: "Comfortable seat and good service"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."

Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"
Cons: "The food was okay. The hot wrap/calzone served first was not very tasteful. The breakfast/brunch was better. Not much to dislike overall."

Pros: "They don't charge you for any seat in economy class"
Cons: "The boarding process feels very hostile, they are not nice and you are threaded as a terrorist (while they smile at you during the process). Since a new policy of TSA according to them, you cannot take your computer with you in the plane. This means that working in your way back is very hard and you will be loosing the day which is very uneficient. But what was even worse, is that they didn't allow me to check my bag in the last connection gettting to the US, instead they made me check it from my original destination which made me loose almost two days of work without giving me a logic response on why I couldn't check my bag from my inbound flight to the US. By the way, this protocol from TSA is terrible. No internet in their flights No chargers plugs in all of their flights (including the ones that take you more than 4 hours) Lunch in their 15 hours flight is mediocre, everyone was starving since they only gave us one mini empanada."

Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."

Pros: "Incredible staff, fast boarding, great entertainment center."
Cons: "Breakfast frittata was like rubber."

Pros: "SPECIALLY THE CREW SERVICE EXCELLENT"

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

Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating. The seats were comfortable and there was good leg space. There was a good selection of movies and shows to watch. The food wasn't bad either."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"

Pros: "ok"
Cons: "Although website says you can pay online, there is no info to pay for extra baggage online. This is very misleading."

Cons: "Arrival in Johannesburg was a nightmare due to queues at immigration - I nearly missed my connecting flight. This was not the fault of Quatar airlines but needs to be taken up with the authorities at OT Airport in Johannesburg"

Pros: "The staff were welcoming and friendly. Their customer care is second to none. The food is excellent and i ate throughout my flight."
Cons: "The comfort was a bit below my expectations. Sitting on the seats along the isle was uncomfortable as they are closely placed. There is no enough room to move and to lean sideways when one wants to sleep. My tv was not working. The touch screen was not responding. However the friendly flight attendants shifted me to a vacant seat where the tv was working. The movie selection was limited. There were no documentaries about wildlife. Sport was also missing. We also need some news channels like Aljazeera, CNN & BBC so that we keep updated on issues happening throughout the world. This is very important especially to people like me who traveled long distances from South Africa to Los Angeles USA."

Cons: "Food availability a minor challenge but crew handled it very nicely."

Cons: "The entertainment system did not work properly"

Pros: "I liked the way of grouping the boarding , and the "ICE" facility had a great options, crew was so helpful."
Cons: "It was far away from the gate to the place of passport clearance and baggage reclamation area, we walked a lot."

Pros: "Very friendly staff, prompt service, smooth boarding, clean cabin."
Cons: "I usually love the food on Emirates but this was really not good. Barely edible!"

Cons: "Me"

Cons: "All was ok just didn’t sleep to well on the long 8 hour flights"

Pros: "Crew were great, entertainment was great, all in all a really comfortable flight despite not getting an aisle seat which would have made it even better"
Cons: "I discovered when I hit Dubai that despite having an eight an a half hour layover that I didn't qualify for the free hotel I thought I did qualify for as someone with an eight hour plus flight so that was a little disappointing have had it before so assumed it was on all flights but that ended up being a negative surprise..."

Pros: "The crew were very hard working and did a great job."

Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent toilets are clean Gluten Free meals are available, that's a big plus"
Cons: "Lots of movies to choose from however I felt the choices were similar in a way! ( Example: you'll find the Drama movies are almost the same as the Romantic movies or the Comedy movies)"

Pros: "Overall flight was good."
Cons: "Flight attendants were helpful but didn’t smile much as I see with other airlines."

Pros: "Great and helpful see ice. Food is good as well. One of the few airlines where flying 24 hours (over 2 legs) is bearable."
Cons: "Takes a long time to board and de board the plane, which almost made me miss my connection at Dubai."

Pros: "The flight was very amply crewed, with attentive and friendly staff. Everthing runs quite efficiently."

Cons: "The seats on the 777-300ER were tiny compared to the seats on the A380 from JFK to dubai. My wife and I are both small people and we were cramped. This is very unfair to us and even so to larger people on such a long leg The entertainment screens were also very poor. Small, low res"

Pros: "great flight service with accommodating staff. in flight entertainment had awesome variety"

Pros: "Very responsive and friendly crew"
Cons: "Would like to see more vegetarian options"

Pros: "Delayed departure. Unable to catch up time. Landed late. Bus took a very long time. Missed the connecting flight"
Cons: "Hotel with all meals provided."

Cons: "I thought I had paid for window seats."

Pros: "I must admit....this is one of the best experiences I have had flying and I fly this route a lot. I was traveling with an Elder who required a wheelchair and every step of the way it was smooth and the crew was attentive."
Cons: "They only give out small cups of water. I would have liked the option of a bottled water as well as for the elder I was traveling with. They did not come around as often with water as we needed. but this complaint is so minor compared to our overall experience that I did not want to even mention it."

Pros: "The departure and return flight time, for the price I paid, I felt like I was in more than an economy flight. The meal, the baggage quota, the entertainment. The time flew because by the time the movie had finished, we were starting to descend. I will always look for this flight with Emirates. There is no other flight in comparison, in what you get for your Buck. I believe that other Airlines, ie., Qantas, Virgin Aust, both give you a flight and service, for nearly the same fare but you only get 7kg luggage, no meal just the basic entitlement, tea/coffe/water with a biscuit or something like that and NO ENTERTAINMENT, NO COMPARISON!!!!"

Pros: "Lovely flight crew and great film selection"
Cons: "Would have liked more healthy food options d"

Pros: "Javier the flight attendant was so welcoming and attentive. Flight got l fit late, but arrived on time. Service was efficient and respectful. Was not as crowded as prior flight and was able to eat the meal"
Cons: "Time of flight really sucked. 4:00 AM departure meant arriving at 1.00 AM. Tough way to start a day"

Pros: "Emirates flight was fine. Problem was booking a South African Airways codebase flight on Kayak. Neither SAA or Emerates were able to look up our booking reference and so we did not get seat assignments until the airport."
Cons: "Codebase flights and no one looking as us as customers."

Pros: "I flew from Orlando DL to Dubai ,and from Dubai to cape town and both flight I was selected to seat on the middle seat,f that happens on my return flights to Orlando fl ,I will never fly emirates again"

Pros: "excellent staff and friendly flight attendant."
Cons: "i wish next time the flight will includes a hotel for the over night stay. I had to sleep on the seats at the airport."

Pros: "Flight appeared less than half-full, I had a full 4 seats to stretch out. Yes, this was just lucky, but very much appreciated."
Cons: "Dull food."

Pros: "Great crew, seats, entertainment options. A 28hr trip felt like 5 because it was so comfortable."
Cons: "I did not like that only one bag is allowed on the flight if you are in economy."

Pros: "It was much better than first leg from Ft Lauderdale to Dubai, better plane, better service, better food, better entertainment"

Pros: "Loved the entertainment options."
Cons: "Food was horrible and cabin crew was not nice or friendly."

Pros: "Good food, great entertainment, comfy seats"

Pros: "Meals and free wine were positives. Also the travel toothbrush and toothpaste were nice. Entertainment with movies and tv had a lot of variety also."
Cons: "It took 45 minutes to get out bags! Crew bags came out immediately but customers stood around the luggage belt for more than 45 minutes b/c thats how long it took to get our bags and many people were left. Very annoying after a 10-hour flight that lands late at night."

Pros: "I didn't like disemabarking and being walked to a bus and then being transported to the actual airport"

Pros: "I have travelled with various airlines over Atlantoc and Pacific none of them I found comfortable as Emirates. The reason I guess is, "Emirates delivers more for ever service" Good work..."
Cons: "The departure time should be more comfortable"

Pros: "The flight crew we're fine and helpful if you needed something."
Cons: "The TV for my seat would cut out when the person in front of me reclined. The charging plug also didn't work."

Pros: "Comfortable seats, comfortable flight and excellent service."

Pros: "Great service and staff, best food I've had on an airline, great legroom in economy. Overall awesome, in my opinion."

Pros: "Excellent experience"

Cons: "I waited in queue for almost 4 hours to get past security. While watching people cut the line, airport officials taking bribe and allowing some people to cut the line and more. i did not have enough time to purchase from the duty free store in chennai and since my flight from chennai was late it landed late in Dubai so I did not have any time to purchase anything in dubai duty free before my connecting flight. I reached airport 4 hours before departure and I get treated like this, horrible service."

Pros: "In flight staff were great, very industrious, and very friendly. In-flight entertainment was the best I have come across on an economy seat."
Cons: "My check-in experience was concerning. I had an onward flight to Manila, but no onward flight from there. The airline policy had me not allowed to check in for my flight because of this. I narrowly avoided missing my flight by booking another flight just in time."

Pros: "This airline is consistently great. Comfortable, lovely staff members, and great in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Was a bit disappointed in the food this time."

Pros: "Seat comfort"
Cons: "Food was really bad. I have travelled in Qatar Airways B class and there I was impressed by the food quality. Here it was really pathetic. Crew was helpful but were not willing to go an extra step. Like , offering a cup of coffee after someone wakes up."

Cons: "Screen was black and white most of flight"

Cons: "My check in luggage was torn. The handle was ripped off from one side. :("

Pros: "The flight was empty and the luxury to choose your open row of seats"

Cons: "Traveled Comfort Plus. Looking really crowded in the main cabin."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "All"

Cons: "Broken plane. Why not take better care?"

Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly and helpful. The drink package for comfort trip was fantastic and worth it."
Cons: "There was zero entertainment inflight and logging onto Wi-Fi was very difficult. I would rather have had free Wi-Fi and a screen to watch movies/games on rather than or in addition to the drinks."

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Thermostat broke, wi fi didn’t work. Temp 60 degrees entire trip. Sucked"

Cons: "My monitor isn’t really working after rebooted. And the audio hole wasn’t tight enough"

Pros: "Delta as always top notch!"

Pros: "The plane was 2 hours late and I could not get home. Missed the connection to Greenville at 11:38. They told me there were no hotels in Atlanta and I would have to stay in the airport and then take the 8:55 am fight to Greenville. That took an hour in line and there was no help."
Cons: "The pilot was awesome. He flew as fast as he could to help anyone make their connection but it didn’t help. But I appreciate him trying. Just frustrated that being military I didn’t get to board earlier or that they didn’t help me find a way home"

Cons: "I had window seats on all flights and was boarded after those in middle/aisle seats 3 out of 4 times. Less legroom in the cheap seats. High whining pitch on speaker during announcements on last leg."

Pros: "All ok"

Pros: "The short duration of the flight and punctual arrival. Better seating with more leg space in Airbus than in the horrible Boeing 467- 400."
Cons: "No headsets distributed so I couldn't listen to film program. Crew rather impersonal. I'm dreaming of an airline that uses functioni g loudspeakers during boarding. Nobody understands acoustically which zone is being boarded ( not only a Delta issue)."

Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "The staff are friendly and passengers quickly get on and off the plane."
Cons: "I travel this route (ATL - MGM) often and it seems like half the time I use Delta there is an issue with the plane including times when the flight has been cancelled. This time the plane left the gate and some fifteen minutes after sitting on the tarmac was taken back to the gate. The issue was said to be an element that keeps a sensor from freezing in extreme cold weather. The less than one hour flight took two hours to complete. This should have been dealt with as a maintenance issue but Delta doesn't seem to think so. The planes on this route make Delta a LOT of money as it is one of the most profitable routes in the US. You would think Delta could invest in keeping better maintained planes on the route."

Cons: "The seats are so uncomfortable, and trying to sleep on the flight was nearly impossible."

Pros: "No issues"

Pros: "Good staff, plenty of room, comfortable flight, smooth flight"
Cons: "Some passengers behind me didn’t get snacks and drink"

Pros: "Despite the turbulence and delay, this was possibly the best flight I've ever been on. I have never been treated so well by a flight crew before. Also, the attendant at the gate managed to get my wife seated next to me when our seats ended up separated. Great experience!"
Cons: "Turbulence and delay was bad, but the flight crew made up for it."

Pros: "Fast boarding and complimentary snacks."
Cons: "I was seated next to a very large woman who came over the arm rest onto my seat."

Pros: "We were early, I had free Wifi, I love Delta!"

Pros: "Loved how close the gates were"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and so was the flight. No entertainment or food on short flights, that should be a N/A"

Cons: "The flight was delayed for 4 hours."

Pros: "on time"

Cons: "My flight got cancel two days in a row due to outrage power in atlanta."

Pros: "Very pleasant customer service, excellent bag delivery service."

Pros: "The gentleman at the gate was super helpful and helped us check our bags at the gate."

Cons: "Delayed flight, customer service was hard to work with."

Pros: "Quick boarding/unboarding."
Cons: "Wouldn't allow me on earlier flight, when there was room, without change fee"

Pros: "The boarding was ok due my on pert on being able to board early. The stewards were nice, friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The seats were the same size as economy. I was disappointed due to fact I traveling with a larger friend and hoped to be comfortable. So much for that idea. The snacks and monitors were limited on each flight. I felt my prices should have as well. I guess this was a learning experience for me. Now I know there is only 1st class and economy."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Long layover in Atlanta. Terrible terminal setup in LAX . Although we were on two connecting Delta flights, we had to leave the arriving terminal and take a bus to another. The second terminal (Terminal 2) was small, crowded, and had few food options."

Pros: "Great upgrade program"
Cons: "Slow unloading of luggage"

Pros: "Plane and flight were ok"
Cons: "The restaurant in CHS took 15 minutes to tell me they didn't have what I'd ordered thereby denying me the chance to a real meal all day. I wish they'd put real meals back on the flights"

Pros: "Good flight. Typical air travel"

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Going into the security check point (immigration) lost my connection from Atlanta to Richmond Va there was just a few CBP officers working at that time but other than that was great"

Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Wi-go didn't really work- crew was unpleasant. We upgraded to first class we were never offered a drink. One of the flight attendants keep using the restrokm"

Pros: "They had some weather in atlanta. So they drove us out to the runway and then we sat for 45 minutes with the engines off waiting to leave. I guess it is nice that they want to keep you safe. After missing our connector - they did put us up in a hotel overnignt. However we still had to pay extra for taxi back, parking an extra day at the airport, and extra meals. Oh - and the extra trip to detroit..."
Cons: "So after waiting 45 minutes on the tarmac - we left and headed to Atlanta. There we landed and waited because they had no gate for us. Then we finally got off the pane and ran to our connector which left without us. We were told they don't hold the plane for less than ten people. So the four of us don't matter. We sat and sat waiting...and then lost another day due to travel."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "they downgraded me from first class to coach"

Pros: "Nice food"

Pros: "Due to business I travel allot so I deal with allot of airlines. This is by far the best airlines I have used. Excellent crew and airport staff.

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Pumpkin soup instead of a heavy entree was welcome and tasty. Breakfast yogurt portion was generous, the granola less so. Accompaniments were good. Butter was not ice cold, thank goodness."
Cons: "Inbelievably chaotic boarding process for Kili to Dar leg. No boarding lanes so had to fight through the crowd. Was able to observe cleaning process at Dar stop, which was cursory and am sure there was no cleaning of seats of those who boarded at Kili."

Pros: "Services is good ."
Cons: "Food can be better"

Pros: "Muslim food"

Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The time between flights."

Pros: "The crews were pretty great!"

Pros: "Flight and the crew!"
Cons: "Staff at the airport pushing you to upgrade to first class but not making it clear only the first trip from Athens to Amsterdam which the first class uses same uncomfortable seats as the economy to pay extra 130 euros ridiculous airfrance stuff! I should have flown all the way to NYC first class!!!"

Pros: "The pilot and the crews were helpful about the transit. Pilot make up a lot of time."

Cons: "Our two hour connection in Paris became 30 minutes because Air France was late in leaving Washington. So our luggage didn't make to to KLM to Amsterdam. My poor rating was because the luggage handling was really poor. Lots of flights from Paris to Amsterdam (almost hourly), but my bag showed up 12 hours later. My wife's bag took 36 hours. And yes, we checked in together. There were lots of confusing messages"

Cons: "Boarding was very confusing. There was an area where they were checking people's bags or something near the gate and you didn't know if you needed to stop at it or continue. They didn't collect garbage before landing. Not only did we have to take our bags off the plane, we had to carry our garbage (drink cups/food served) to the front of the plane to throw out."

Pros: "The crew were hardworking, responsive, conscientious and friendly"
Cons: "Really poor entertainment choices esp compared to my inbound AirFrance flight. Boarding was pretty disorganized and late."

Pros: "Service, technology"
Cons: "Could not print by boarding card and was not allowed to board in Amsterdam"

Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful, entertainment system worked well and had good choices"
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable, it was uncomfortably hot and there was not air conditioner vent above like most other airlines"

Cons: "Headset jack only worked if the headset plug was in EXACTLY the right spot."

Pros: "The staff the facilities the food all ******. Will definetly look forward to choose both delta and KLM"

Pros: "Flight was lovely, crew were friendly and very helpful and food was delicious!! We travelled with assistance for mum and it was excellent and we were kept updated all through the flight."

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."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours. Arriving at Incheon, discovered ground crew were unaware of our arrival to take this connecting flight. However, we were put up overnight in a hotel, which was nice."

Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight from Amsterdam was 2 hours late. Caused me to miss connection on train from London to Leeds which then cost me 124 pounds to rebook. No information was forthcoming at all at the airport and there were 3 different departure times given. Absolute chaos. The airline is a joke"

Cons: "Departure 40 mins late. I took this flight 2 weeks ago and it was also delayed."

Pros: "Boarding was very efficient."
Cons: "Limited movie selection. Crew seemed stressed. Gave me wrong meal and then swaped for the right one. I asked for Diet Coke and was given white wine. Food quality was not good."

Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Economy was very tight! Seats were uncomfortable"

Pros: "The crew was very attentive and willing to assist with everything."

Cons: "The outward flight was rerouted to a different airport, and the return flight was delayed by more than an hour. Not even a glass of water free of charge."

Pros: "It was very comfortable."
Cons: "If my actual flight hadn’t gotten cancelled. Also my tv didn’t latch, so it rattled a lot and when the people talked on the speaker, if you were plugged in, im pretty sure it would cause hearing damage...."

Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The aircraft: too old! No charging ports, entertainment system horrible. The food was not super."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Really old plane with uncomfortable seats and really bad in flight options. The air conditioning was also broken so the entire flight felt hot and muggy, this is on a 12 hour flight!!"

Pros: "Smooth flight without event. On time landing. Efficient deplaning."
Cons: "Newer plane. Seats , entertainment, cabin crew."

Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was unbearably hot"

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Not applicable."

Cons: "Only one round of drinks served?"

Cons: "Flight from heathrow to Manchester stopped it being excellent alll round as flight delayed over an hour"

Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "The food, inflight entertainment. Our flight was delayed by over an hour."

Cons: "not ONE single smile !!!!"

Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly staff"
Cons: "Very poor movie choice and poor quality screen"

Pros: "We pushed back from the gate about 24 minutes late and arrived at our destination about 38 minutes late. The four-course dinner (Chicken Tikka Masala or Penne Pasta) was good for airline food. The crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "No USB power ports by the seats."

Pros: "Lots of room, drinks and snacks friendly crew"
Cons: "Heathrow Airport is a nightmare"

Cons: "Seat in row ahead was broken, causing it to recline too far and not correctly return upright"

Cons: "I would have appreciated knowing ahead of time that 1) I was seated at the emergency exit, 2) that as a result, I would not be allowed to have my carry-on at my seat. Communication would have been appreciated."

Pros: "Polite and funny crew"
Cons: "Snacks and drinks for money"

Pros: "Nating"
Cons: "Nating"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "3 canceled flights and lost luggage.... bad communication by employers and absolutely no help ... we were sent all over the airport several times to the wrong places and felt that no body cared in this process .... I would like compensation and something to make this right ... we also lost our upgraded seats I lpaid for and the vegan meals we ordered in advance"

Pros: "The Crew were great"
Cons: "Boarding could have been more efficient"

Pros: "The steward was nice."
Cons: "I had to run to the gate during my connection in London. The plane had landed late. British airlines left my suitcase and didnt tell me until i arrived in NY"

Pros: "Nothing to special comparing with other first class"
Cons: "Boarding process was very late, they made us wait in the cold for 10 min before letting us in the plane. The staff was professional but not too friendly and the place is old. When I purchased the ticket it said it was a airbus A380"

Pros: "Staff are friendly, accomodating for an unaccompanied child with me, upgraded me and helped to support the extra baggage needs"
Cons: "Old, dirty planes with bad enterainment systems and mediocre food and drink offerings. With the price of a ticket more than Emirates, KLM and other airlines, always really suprised the overall crappy hardware, infrastructure on planes etc. When can we get a decent plane to fly the long haul flights. And an actual entertainment system like to competitors?"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "There was an abusive passenger sitting behind me that kicked my chair the entire flight. They were angry that they didn't have more space and that I wanted to have my seat back. I offered to put it up during meal times to make sure they had enough space but that wasn't good enough. The crew knew what was happening and tried to get the other passenger to stop but the passenger persisted. The crew refused to upgrade me even though I had paid for an aisle seat and there were no other aisle seats available for me to move to. I find this service unacceptable. I probably won't be willing to fly BA again as they obviously care more about money than ensuring their customers are comfortable."

Pros: "everything else was fine"
Cons: "Food was not complementary"

Cons: "The flight was cancelled, it was very difficult for me to do all rearrangements."

Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "No wifi on a +11hr flight TV Screen looks horrible. Too old. Didn’t even watch any movie on it. got downgraded from First Class to Business Class because the airline oversold first classs. Shouldn’t happen."

Cons: "My suitcase got stuck in London, now I have to chase it..."

Cons: "got to the check-i counter and didn;t realize my ticket didn't include a checked bag. Was charged 65 pounds.---a bit high in my opinion. The disclosure was not at all prominent. Was surprised and disappointed at the price. Also, was never served water during the overnight flight. Am accustomed to flight attendants coming through the cabin a couple of times with water."

Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "The food, the seats were old and cramped and i could feel every movement from the ppl behind and actually got shouted at by the man in front of me because i put my water bottle in the pouch in my seat. He thought i was punching the seat. inflight entertainment was brutal, limited selection of movies and bad ones at that. The screen was old and pixelated..... Food was bland and not edible. It was a red eye and we were not given eye masks, toothbrushes or ear buds. Horrble experience ill never fly BA again"

Pros: "Was notified many times about flight delay, but was on time. Ground personnel very congenial!"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable, food and coffee almost inedible! Layover in Heathrow nearly killed me after overnight flight (5 hrs. of chaotically organized airport). Unhelpful and unnecessarily officious personnel in Heathrow."

Pros: "Pleasant check in process. Long layover tags put on our checked bags On time"

Pros: "Wonderful customer service and hot meal was a lovely treat!!"

Cons: "No direct communication. Really bad"

Pros: "No complimentary food or drink London to Paris"

Cons: "Heathrow connection process almost caused me to miss my flight, despite having 2 hours between connections. Security officer at Heathrow was very unprofessional, and took a great pleasure in delaying my processing through the security line. Specifically, I did not remove a PHONE BATTERY CHARGER from my carry-on for screening, so he proceeded to dump out the whole backpack contents, and then purposefully was very slow about putting things back in one by one.As an active duty police officer I understand the need for security and follow all the regulations and instructions to the best of my abilities. However in this case the security officer went out of his way to make the process as slow as he could. Very bad, stressful experience traveling on BA with connection at Heathrow."

Pros: "The food was excellent and the flight staff was very accommodating."
Cons: "No wireless internet or USB/Power plugs to charge my devices on the plane."

Cons: "Tiny area for feet at window seat. Overhead compartment smaller than usual."
