Thank you for everything No comment 👌👌

I wish the food tasted better.

Pros: "comfortable seats. Flight duration was good. Layover was little longer. Overall good experience"
Pros: "Flight was nice and on time"
Cons: "No toothbrush toothpaste and eyes shades provided"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Nothing, absolutely loved it"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The entertainment was really good. The movie options were good. It was really nice that the movies were free. The pilot did a nice controlled landing and take off"
Cons: "N/a"
Cons: "too many little children"
Pros: "Pilot does not waste time chatting. Still too much chatter (interrupting movies) but less than on other airlines."
Cons: "Entertainment system is Windows based and designed by a moron, especially CC behavior. Shows ads (LOTS) before each movie. Pops up window chrome every time you dismiss PA announcements. Very few movies/TVs (even those from the US) have CC."
Pros: "Entertainment was exhaustive and entertaining"
Cons: "Service was very poor. They missed servicing drinks when I was watching movie. Didn’t ask me. There was NO air freshener sprayed in this long flight. Overall service was very poor especially on my side of service at 32F."
Pros: "Friendly crew, delicious food and the entertainment was above board."
Cons: "n/a"
Cons: "Needs to be a bigger plane for such a long trip. Crew seemed like they weren't happy to be on the flight. One bathroom was out of commission for our 14 hour flight and limited our section of the plane to one bathroom. The remaining bathroom was very dirty and lacked supplies. When I asked for some help to have it cleaned, the attendant told me she would have to lock it down but there was already a big line of people waiting to use it. Disappointed in this flight because it was so long with limited facilities. Enjoyed other times I had used Emirates but not this time."
Cons: "cabin crew's service - men far behind women esp.when serving food. Not up to the mark."
Pros: "Excellent food, entertainment options, staff was great with the exception of one. Plane entertainment technology varies from route to route."
Cons: "Dubai airport is highly disappointing. The bathroom situation is atrocious! I am not exaggerating when I say I waited in line of 25 and 35 women two different times! The men’s situation isn’t ideal but is no where near the problem that is the women’s restrooms. The boarding process is mildly confusing - there is no public drinking fountains but if you buy water you are not allowed to take it to your gate. This info isn’t posted anywhere and makes no sense bc you purchased the water after you were checked through security. Also this rule truly only applies to women. A stewardess showed preferential treatment to someone who looked more native than us and then didn’t apologize. I understood the customer was upset so the flight attendant was trying to pacify the lady/couple but at least apologize for being rude. Dubai airport very much favors men and I would never travel without my husband. I would fly Emirates again but it won’t be my top choice and I won’t be going back to the Dubai airport anytime soon."
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."
Pros: "Crew, food, service"
Cons: "No respect from other passengers, lots of kicking seats, pulling on seats, babies crying. I will not take an Emirates flight from Dubai to Chicago again. I will choose another airline."
Pros: "Great business class seats with lay flat seats, attentive staff, great drinks, wine, food, recent movies and lots of choices."
Cons: "No separate pre-boarding area for business and first class. Beginning of boarding wasn't announced"
Pros: "I left my kindle reader in the seatback in my flight to Dubai. They found it and returned it to me on my retum doback to Chicago 3 weeks later."
Cons: "Lactose free meal was disgusting."
Pros: "Love the idea of informing every leg of my flight. Thanks"
Pros: "Overall very good"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Not many old Bollywood movies to select from..."
Cons: "This seemed far different from emirate flights that I'm used to. Over the years their service has decreased but the 1 meal and sub-par snack I got for an 8.5hr flight was poor, likened to a budget airline. This is the second flight recently I've been on that the drinks come so long after the meal you don't even get to enjoy your cola with the meal. The first food cart should have colas if there won't be another cart to come along until 30+ minutes later. I also expected Emirates to provide an eye patch, an 8 hr+ flight in the night time hours in worthy of an eyepatch. Budget airlines do not provide this, but I expected Emirates to. Lastly, I don't think it's necessary to hand out a menu indicating there is something to look forward to when the food is of quite poor standards for Emirates, standard for all other airlines. Maybe the Durban to Dubai route stocks he flights with less experienced crew, this is the impression I got; a much less refined group of people on the plane."
Pros: "I liked the meals"
Cons: "It was hard to push my chair back"
Pros: "The entertainment, seats, and food were all good."
Cons: "My only complaint would be that I didn't feel the crew members were around unless food was being served. I got up and asked for water twice, and at one point I woke up to find I had just missed the serving of a snack but when I rang my bell for a crew member to come over no one ever stopped by."
Pros: "Seat comfort and some cabin crew we're really kind"
Cons: "My screen was not very responsive to touch. Was challenging to navigate. I couldn't clearly hear the PA announcements"
Pros: "Hospitality and food"
Cons: "Seat assignment and boarding process"
Pros: "The crew was great in everything that they did."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew were very competent and nice."
Cons: "There was not enough overhead space for my carryon bag, so had to go further back in the plane to find space, this caused a problem when disembarking."
Pros: "Good Price with on first priority"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Pros: "Excellent friendly crew, comfortable seats. Drinks menu could have a little better variety (no Jack Daniels was a little surprising)"
Cons: "Usually I have enjoyed the food but the food on the return flight was not palatable."
Pros: "Once again, the food and entertainment selections were what I liked the most about the flight."
Cons: "The crew were a bit impatient with the passengers. There was a lady travelling with an infant, and she was not sure how to fasten the seat belt on the baby. It seemed to me that the stewardess was impatient in dealing with the passenger."
Cons: "70 minutes waiting on tarmac for no obvious reason before 15 + hours flight is not nice, perfect weather, plane 4 hours before take off ready , but ATC allowed 14 small planes to over take us....Dubai airport big disappointment, not enough clean restrooms, overpriced ,not enough food courts ,only retail and duty free, boarding took double time than usual....for me no more Dubai,"
Pros: "Flights were booked back in May and Emirates did not make major schedule changes"
Cons: "Consistently late departures. Did not keep passengers informed about updated departure times. After serving the food, it took more than one hour to take the leftovers away. During the flight from Dubai -Chicago, hot beverages were served 1.5 hours after the food was served. Crew was not friendly at all. During the Chicago-Dubai flight a crew member basically yelled at passengers "open the windows" and I had to tell him to "ask nicely please). Emirates comes nowhere close to Singapore, Thai, or Turkish in terms of service."
Pros: "Great selection of entertainment available."
Cons: "Seat space was very tight, and my seat was broken (would not recline). Also, a toddler screamed for over 6 hours straight with no intervention from the parents or crew."
Pros: "On time and cheap flight"
Pros: "I did not like the vegetarian food that was offered"
Pros: "The staff was very friendly"
Cons: "food choices and entertainment options could be better"
Cons: "We specifically reserved AVM meal option and couldn't get that on flight. It appears that it was not only us but many passengers who reserved AVM meal option were complaining about not getting one. On 14 hours long flight not getting a good of your choice is bad."
Pros: "Flight was clean that's pretty much it."
Cons: "Medicore service tryed almost all major airlines this was the worst service."
Pros: "Excellent crew and entertainment"
Cons: "Restrooms needed cleaning And Boarding were unorganized"
Pros: "Great service, comfortable seats, and great entertainment ..the food isnt too bad depending if ur not a picky eater, but overall its the best"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "good crew, prompt timing, good food"
Cons: "long transit in Dubai"
Cons: "Leg space is very little.. Rest rooms were messy after a while."
Cons: "Last minute surprise with re-routing to Chicago. Few options provided on Changed booking."
Pros: "Very helpful crew"
Cons: "I like almost every thing."

Food and the entertainment on the airline was good. The legroom between seats was OK because I am a female and I’m not too tall. As mentioned before the only issue I had was with the luggage. The only allowed one suitcase first passenger on the way to Karachi Pakistan. On the way back they allowed me to suitcase per passenger

It was a good trip. Friendly staff. On time flights. Great experience.

Great flight!

Never let me on flight bc of Covid requiremrnts

Pros: "GOOD FLIGHT"
Cons: "NONE"
Pros: "The crew was v good"
Cons: "The seats and boarding staff"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Very happy on Doha to ORD"
Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The food, while it tasted good, made me a little sick because it’s pretty unhealthy. I am vegan and would have like lower calorie option meals. I tried to find an option on the app to order special meals, but couldn’t. It would be good if Qatar made it easy to order special meals on their app."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful. Entertainment very good."
Cons: "Food was atrocious!"
Pros: "Crew was nice, attentive and very helpful"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Excellent"
Pros: "crew were amazing."
Pros: "The other two seats in my row were not occupied"
Cons: "The excessive and second security checking at Doha"
Pros: "Food was great , seats were comfortable and crew was very helpful. Entertainment was more than enough."
Cons: "(1) Was about to miss flight because originally my flight booking was from Benazir International Airport Islamabad but t the time of flight I boarded from a different and new airport in Islamabad which had become operational in Islamabad in the last week of April 2018 . My flight was on 10th May 2018 from Islamabad to Doha to Chicago but neither my online booking site ( Kayak ) not Qatar Airways sent any notification that my Boarding was changed from Banzir International Airport to the newer, bigger airport. Consequently , on the day of flight, I went to check in and board from the Bnazir International Airport but upon reaching the airport I was told that the airport was no more in operation. I was surprised to hear that all flights were to be from the newer airport. By the time I rerouted my taxi to the new airport I was already late for my flight but fortunately the flight from Islamabad to Doha, Qatar was delayed and I made it to the boarding time and flew to Doha , Qatar and then to Chicago."
Pros: "Good staff and service"
Pros: "The flight attendants were professional and polite, I requested low-fat meals and they were good, the entertainment was very good, the air temperature was comfortable, most flights I had were on time."
Cons: "The legroom was a problem. Seats are kind of narrow, and then, with the lack of legroom it’s somewhat challenging to shift your legs, especially when the seat in front of you goes back! I felt like the person was almost in my lap. My cup even got crunched. I think my biggest issue, though, lay in how I was treated after paying $127.00 to obtain a day pass for the lounge each way. For my inbound flight my purse was branded with an “economy” class luggage type tag, and I was made to feel as though I was trying to sneak in. I had to show my boarding pass a number of times to employees after asking for the location of the lounge in order to be directed there, and then my credentials were examined as though I was trying to get into Fort Knox. Upon arrival at the desk, I was somewhat tersely informed that I had 6 hours. I went out of my way a bit in order to fly Qatar, which is supposed to be so wonderful, and I was underwhelmed. I’ve had better experiences on Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines."
Pros: "Excellent crew and plane. Not very crowded."
Pros: "Hospitality and food."
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable."
Cons: "the returning flight from Doha to Chicago was absolutely old and small."
Pros: "The Crew The Food"
Cons: "The fact that we (my son and I) had to wait at the airport for over 9hours transiting. right after a 9hr 35miins journey."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Everything qas great"
Pros: "Friendliness of staff. Cleanliness"
Pros: "childrens meals and play packages. service was good, and bathrooms were kept clean. The meals were tastey and fresh."
Pros: "Crew welcomes"
Cons: "Bad takeoff and landing"
Cons: "The flight crew had no control over the passengers on this flight! Kids running around when the seat belt sign on, called fro assistance TWICE and no one came to my seat and I held my trash for a whole hour and not ONE person stopped by to get it from me!"
Cons: "Dirty old plane"
Pros: "I have long stay in the DOha airport, 22 hours, and during this there is no accomodation is provided by Qatar airway"
Cons: "The flight departure from Dar was moved up an hour and the congestion at the airport made it close. Also I need a name tag on a checked piece of luggage. When I asked, I was told that none were available. The check in person was not pleasant or helpful. I also had to watch to make sure that the luggage labels were attached to be sure that they would make it to Chicago. Once on the plane there was an unrudy boy sitting in front of us jumping in his seat, never wearing his seat belt kicking the seat, turning on the light beating on the tray table, calling the flight attendant. The adult ignored the child through the flight. It was one of the worse experiences I have had on a plane. I would have to think very hard before I fly Qatar again."
Pros: "The flight was on time. The crew was very accommodating. The food is better than some other airlines. The entertainment provided had a lot of choices I had an 8 1/2 hour layover in Doha. They booked me a short stay in a hotel at no extra charge. This included a car and driver to and from the hotel. It was a nice hotel close to the airport."
Cons: "I was sitting in economy. I booked too late to get any type of upgrade for extra legroom. For Economy it was OK, but cramped and hard to get comfortable on a 13+ hour flight."
Pros: "Timely response on the phone."
Cons: "Timely response on the phone."
Cons: "Crew members were not concerned. Service was not proper and on time."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable with sufficient leg space and overall ambience of the cabin."
Cons: "I pre ordered Hindu meal. The meal selection by the airline was same from Karachi-Doha and Doha-Chicago. There was no choice of menu in the meal on such a long flight. Moreover taste of offered food was not satisfactory."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "My family was happy with the service provided by Qatar airline."
Pros: "First of all, I want to preface this by saying that virtually every airline is better than the major ones working in the US (American, United, and Delta), and Qatar Airways is amongst this number. The entertainment selection was excellent, the best of any flight I've ever been on. The flight attendants were excellent, again, much better than those on American carriers (I am American, FYI)."
Cons: "The food was terrible. Of course, we know this about airline food, BUT I have been on Qatar Airways flights with GOOD food in the past, so I know it can be better. Also, I sat in the baby section, which also happens to be where they put long-legged people. This is no one's fault, but suffice to say, do NOT sit next to 4 5-month olds for a 15-hr flight! Interestingly, since all flight attendants were women, about 50% of the flight did listen to them since there were many conservative Arabs onboard from Qatar or Saudi Arabia (i.e., those who are taught not to listen to or respect women). This made for some frustrating sites to witness but it's obviously not the airline's fault. Poor women!"
Pros: "Extremely like Qatar airways Both ground services and in flight service are excellent"
Cons: "Nothing . everything was fine."
Cons: "On O-Hare Airport, Qatar Air Line's staff is very rod, I never recommend to anyone. Now if anyone ask from me then i refuse to buy Qatar Aiway ticket then they buy Emirate or other air line tickets"
Pros: "TImings"
Cons: "Price"
Pros: "The food you serve is good! We also appreciated the little gray packs of toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, etc. that you shared. The staff is very professional, and we enjoyed our flight,. We enjoyed the "quiet room" in the airport."
Cons: "I had a little trouble with the dvd monitor."
Pros: "food"
Cons: "Worst customer service ever seen in my 15years of flying experience. Initially charged $1000 for 3 tickets for modification of return trip - confirmed the same and tickets issued (i'm fine with this). But, after i made arrangements for new date, I got a call saying calculation error and asked to pay another $500 leaving me no choices. How can such a reputed airline have no tools to calculate the pay? Other airlines offered one-way for half of the price i paid. On top of it, online helpdek promised front line seat to satisfy me but nothing was offered even if i ask explicitly. Simply declined saying i am not in priority list. Why do they make false promises? Friends, Just don't fly in Qatar for food....."
Pros: "Due to the multiple booking mess, I got a middle seat in a 14 hour long leg as all all isle seats were taken. I requested an isle seat due to health issue but no help. The flight was 1.15 hour late and made me lose my connection at Chicago.Never flying Qatar again."
Pros: "Good staff and service."
Cons: "Too long a flight and require more leg room and reclining seats to be more comfortable."
Cons: "The customer service of your company is the worst."
Pros: "Everything was quite nice. The TV screens were working for all the seats! Though I did not give my meal preference earlier, they still accommodated my request. Doha airport is quite nice and modern. Crew was helpful."
Cons: "I wish Quatar had a direct flight between Chicago and Indian cities such as Delhi and Mumbai. I can understand that Doha is their hub, but such a flights would be really good for me as I always want to reduce my layovers. (I noticed that most travelers in my Delhi to Doha and Doha to Chicago flights were Indians, hence my request makes sense.)"
Pros: "Leg room. Free booze. Personalized attention"
Cons: "The thought of flying American carriers afterwards"
Pros: "The food on the way back to the United States was excellent. The flight attendants were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The good on the way to Cape Town was deplorable. Some of the seat back entertainment centers were malfunctioning while trying to watch movies. They would stop and move forward of their own accord."
Pros: "Plane wasn't full, which was nice."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Starting the pre-boarding process into an area without a restroom was horrible. Not allowing us to bring a water bottle on a 14-hour flight was cruel. Movie selection could be better. Additionally, it seems like the Qatar airport is becoming more like a US airport. Agents were barking orders and the pre-boarding process was slow. It was not a good start to the flight."
Pros: "Lots of disruptive kids, one of the ethnically chinese (sorry didn't catch her name) was very attentive and supportive of parents trying to keep their kids happy on a twelve hour flight."
Cons: "Long flight, infrequent water distribution, half the staff just chatting in the back. Filthy bathrooms not cleaned in flight."
Cons: "Not much of space in aircraft"
Pros: "Yes it was a smooth comfortable flight"
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "Amy was absolutely amazing! She was attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly! One of the best flight attendants l have ever met."
Pros: "Service and drinks"
Pros: "Our flight attendant was awesome. Very friendly and attentive."
Cons: "The cabin temperature was cold and the flight was delayed by over an hour."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The aircraft: too old! No charging ports, entertainment system horrible. The food was not super."
Cons: "The entertainment system broke down and the flight attendants seemed sassy"
Pros: "Onboard staff were very friendly."
Cons: "Allow more room for taller passenger without extra cost"
Cons: "Flight from heathrow to Manchester stopped it being excellent alll round as flight delayed over an hour"
Pros: "Crew was great! Helpful and nice"
Cons: "Walk by and offer water more often."
Pros: "The crew was very good, really polite and nice and helpful. Pilots or the plane's auto landing system did a good touch down in a hard windy condition at Ohare."
Cons: "Cramped seating as usual in economy, but BA's is better than others in most cases. A few extra inches of leg and knee room would make all the difference in the world. Our worst experience is the over zealous highly inefficient very slow tedious carry on bag security system at Heathrow terminal 5."
Cons: "Flight were delayed abnd canceled"
Pros: "Not being squeezed into a claustrophobic window seat."
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Pros: "Good good, seats comfortable, good entertainment options"
Cons: "Reclining seats meant cramped leg room"
Pros: "We sat in Row 25, which did not have a seat in front of it, so we got lots of extra leg room. British Airways have incredibly friendly crew :) They feed you really good, better than any other airlines I've been on :)"
Pros: "The Airbus was a real nice ride, with a great entertainment choices."
Cons: "The only thing was the two hour delay getting out of Heathrow. But that was for safety reasons, a bag had been loaded that shouldn't have been."
Pros: "Once again BA 297 was more than an hour late departing because BA could not get bags and cargo loaded."
Cons: "See above. If BA cant get A380 loaded for on time departure, get more baggage handlers or use a different aircraft."
Cons: "Because of inability to load baggage at LHR we were over an hour late departing. Upon landing in ORD the CSM noted that many bags did not make flight. This is very poor service."
Cons: "We had a horrible experience in boarding BA both in Chicago and returning from London. In both instances, our seats were held back, told the flight was oversold (we booked 90 prior to the flight, and almost didn't get on the flight returning home. Our confirmed flight was meaningless. I'll never use Kayak again."
Pros: "Customer service in London extremely helpful"
Cons: "Left our bags in London"
Pros: "The crew on this flight was very nice and accommodating but was over shadowed by the experience of prior connecting flight and rediculous need to RUN thru London airport requirements to reach this flight."
Cons: "Lost luggage and rediculous connecting flights."
Pros: "Since I'm in a wheelchair the folks were ready at the gate to assist me with the aisle chair. Once on board, the crew informed me of an aisle chair in the plane so during the flight I can use the bathroom. This was my first time using the plane washroom. Food was great."
Cons: "I can't get same helpful crew for Intl flights."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful. Mechanical problem delayed flight by an hour. Pilot and staff were helpful with updates. Kayak continue to have best prices that I can find."
Cons: "In economy, meal out was a dried out pasta (or chicken) and arrival meal was a choice of candy bar or cookies! Eat before boarding or bring your own. The plane is well maintained and clean but just very old. Seems the in-flight entertainment is no longer updated monthly. If you fly a lot of long haul, this can be disappointing."
Cons: "British Airways would not let me board the original flight (even though I would only be in Istanbul to change planes), because I did not have a Turkish Visa. I may have lost my ticket payment as well."
Cons: "We did not know it was Finnair until we got to the airport and could not find Brittish Airlines flight. This is on Kayak because none of your information indicated anything except a British Air flight. We asked several people and finally figured it out only they changed the gate at that point and we almost missed the flight after sitting in the airport for three hours"
Pros: "It was awesome how the windows are tinted and you can sometimes control it, and the new TV things on the back of every seat are truly amazing!"
Cons: "WHY is there no dairy free food?! I'm vegan but even for lactose intolerant people with more normal diets - there were absolutely no options! "meatballs and rice or pasta with a cheese sauce" - come ON! It's not that hard to make a vegetarian option that also happens to be dairy free!"
Pros: "The crew were great"
Cons: "The meal served left much to be desired."
Cons: "The seats were way too close. I even paid for an upgrade. My legs were get cramped and the width of the seats were awful!"
Pros: "Excellent service all around. Would definitely fly Iberia again"
Cons: "Flight connection in Chicago for flight to Austin was missed. Had to stay the night in Chicago instead of getting home to Austin that day."
Pros: "entertainment options were good & staff was nice. Flights were both on time."
Cons: "I was very disappointed in the serious lack of legroom on the flight. I would think of a flight was 8 hours there would at least A little leg room. I paid for a seat and the lady next to me kept raising the arm rest and spilling into my seat. I had to lean over into the aisle and was miserable the entire flight. The guy in front of me also reclined his seat all the way and I couldn't get my tray down and it took a lot of effort to get out to use the restroom. I was beyond disappointed with how little leg room there was and I am only 5'6". I completely understand that more seats mean more money for airline, but this isn't even safe in the event of an emergency."
Pros: "Professional service, felt safe. Good cost."
Cons: "Only fed one full meal on our transatlantic flight, and got one snack otherwise. Took awhile to take our trays which caused a very long line for the bathroom after. On our inter Europe flight, no snacks were included."
Pros: "Crew was courteous. Seats were comfortable, but tight. Meal was tasty and the entertainment was great."
Cons: "Boarding is totally chaotic. Once priority boarding is done it is every man for themselves. Most airlines give you a boarding number and that cuts down on the pushing and shoving."
Cons: "Airline had email and cell phone and did not notify me of the canceled flight. Wanted to fly me out two days later. Did not offer to look at airline partners or rivals to try and fly us out on day we were scheduled. Offered a refund. So they were willing to refund a flight we booked a year in advance so I can look for new airfare with 12 hours notice."
Pros: "The Heathrow staff were very helpful when we booked seats, etc."
Cons: "Seats were narrow and cramped for legroom. Airplane was old and a wee bit scruffy. 9 hour flight had one meal of a choice of Indian or vegetarian cuisines. A small snack of cheese and crackers and juice would have been nice. Is there really a Finnair? We flew to Britain on American and home to the US on Brit Air. We got a good price on the tickets but thought we would be on a Finnair plane."
Pros: "Individual tv stations, great customer service."
Cons: "Not a big snack before we landed."
Cons: "1. Allowed us to book connection but time is limited. You need 5 hours layover to get to gates in London, every gates seem to be requiring to ride a bus. 2. We missed our connection and booked us to the next flight, waited 5 hours. 3. We were assigned to row 54, headache the whole trip, almost throw up at the end. 4. my daughter almost didn't eat because apparently only have chicken curry. My daughter is vegetarian."
Pros: "Wonderful customer service and hot meal was a lovely treat!!"
Pros: "Just the right amount of flight time and arriving early in the morning. Dreamliner makes the flight much easier. Always get either 3rd or 7th row seats with window bed and free access to isle."
Cons: "Usually starts late sometimes in London, and always on some remote gate."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The chicken meal was one tiny slab or meat-about two inches by 1 inch (5 cm x 2.5 cm in Metrics). It was dreadful."
Pros: "I liked the service, the affordable flight and the food"
Cons: "The booking said Finnair, but it was with American airlines going to England and then with British airways going home to Chicago. It wasn't clear where to check in, or which website to go to. please be more clear regarding which airlines to check in and which airline we will be using."
Cons: "Only was served water twice during the 8-hour flight. Also was not at the back of the plane and was still forced to eat the vegetarian meal because they ran out of other options."
Pros: "food and video entertainment"
Cons: "mysterious baggage problem that was not adequately explained by Captain. Staff were choatic in supposedly checking bags to passengers, but only in an erratic fashion. As a result flight was delayed by 2 hours."
Pros: "The staff were prompt is serving food and drinks, good selection of movies on board."
Cons: "Other passengers weren't the best, and unfortunately there were many small children on the plane, which meant it was very noisy."
Pros: "Crew handled the emergency well."
Cons: "We had a mechanical problem and flight had to return to London. My compliant is the maintenance was not done properly which could have been a much bigger problem."
Pros: "Left and arrived early"
Cons: "Twice requested water that never came. On landing, the plane swerved and felt like it dipped to the right before straightening out. a little unnerving."
Pros: "Flight crew professional appearance"
Cons: "unable to upgrade/purchase an economy comfort seat only 2 offers of water through out flight -- and one of those was 1/2 hour before landing"
Pros: "Our original flight was delayed an hour, then 4 hours, then eventually cancelled. The last gate crew gave us no updates other than saying it was being delayed to a maintenance check. We eventually had to rebook our direct flight from ORD to CDG to then ORD to LHR and then to CDG. Because of this delay we missed most of our first day in Paris. The flight crew from LHR to CDG was very polite and friendly! I will be doing business with British Airways again in the near future. I will not be doing business with American Airlines anytime soon. Neither will my friends and family once they find out about my horrible experience with their lackluster customer service."
Cons: "Everything that involved American Airlines and my 7 hour flight delay."
Cons: "The air in the airplane was very cold and no blankets were provided. The aircraft seemed very old. Small movie screens on the ceiling, too far away to watch movie."
Pros: "Flight attendants friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Plane was stuffy upon entering. No ability to have cooler air as no individual air vents. Flight attendant said no cool air until in the air which was quite awhile-half hour or more."
Cons: "Is way below par when compared to emirates or any other international airlines"
