Pros: "Flight was nice and on time"
Cons: "No toothbrush toothpaste and eyes shades provided"
Pros: "Crew & food was amazing"
Cons: "Delayed flight and the procedures took very long."
Cons: "Food could be tastier. But, you can’t starve"
Cons: "Vegan food was served with BUTTER how can this be vegan? NEED MORE Healthy options instead of Pan cakes etc made of Enriched Flour... Upgrades have become.alsmost nil. Emirates is making a huge profit but is not sharing with its passengers... had to wait one whole hour to get our baggage"
Pros: "Good leg room, comfortable"
Cons: "Food not that good, mostly cold, games for children didn't work, service used to be better"
Pros: "Food was excellent (Emirates rep helped choose Asian veg per my need description)"
Cons: "Not applicable"
Cons: "The food was very cheap, it’s not the Emirates that it used to be, especially if you fligh economy. The crew wasn’t so nice, they seem like tired and unhappy, not even a smile. If you ask for something the answer was sorry we don’t have. The wifi didn’t work properly and now you have to pay for that. My seat, 87K didn’t work, it was blocked and I couldn’t reclined. Emirates used to be very good airline but not anymore."
Cons: "Requested an aisle seat at the front or an emergency seat and got neither. I could hardly move my long legs. That the flight was long did not help matters. I was sandwiched between two other travelers on a three-seater arrangement. Again, is it just on flights to Kenya or other African countries that passengers DO NOT receive the travel pouch?"
Cons: "Food was bland, repetitive (poor choice and variety) Crew was unwelcoming. Had to ask multiple times for water, soda and also take away plates I have travelled emirates before so this flight was bad compared to previous experiences"
Pros: "I was able to uograde"
Cons: "They used a lot more miles to upgrade than I thought they would Emirates keeps saying the ticket I bought through Kayal was a super saver- well I did not find the time combo I needed to travel and the prices I found on the Emirates website and Kayak were similar to within 50$"
Cons: "They took my scarf and it was crazy cold in New York. Then they wouldn't let me use the bathroom yet it took almost an hour to land. Ridiculous. I was in 81D. I hope they found my scarf."
Cons: "I could not pick my seat in advance. It wasn’t clear while booking that this was the case with emirates. They had fees to book a seat in advance. I could only pick my seat when online check in was allowed. It was important for me to have a good seating option on 14hr flight."
Pros: "Loved the service. My flight was from NYC to Milan."
Cons: "There was not one thing."
Pros: "The crew was great and helped make it easier with young children - the entertainment for children was also very diverse - despite it being a 14 hour flight!!"
Cons: "The children meal was not wonderful. But as I only had one and two children - they shared an adult and child meal - which was okay."
Cons: "Emirates should have contacted me about my missing bag which they didn't contact me yet. Not sure where my bag is as of now"
Cons: "I had to travel extra hours because they wouldn't let me change my flight pattern I wanted to do a flight change thinking it would be $200.00 no they wanted $1700.00 which was more than my original flight so I had to fly back to catch my original flight"
Pros: "Food was the best I ever had on Economy, seats were comfortable, enterteriment was very good, cabin crew very polite and attentious..."
Cons: "Boarding was too Long with to much security measures"
Pros: "Emirates gets credit for reasonable legroom in economy class and excellent entertainment choices."
Cons: "Airbus A380 is a huge airplane. So many passengers creates limitations."
Pros: "Check in was smooth, flight was smooth and pleasant. Great food, great entertainment choices, great seat company. Best part was the hotel provided during my layover in the wee hours of the morning. I was able to sleep well and shower and was therefore more relaxed during the ensuing 14 hour flight."
Pros: "Overall, Emirates is an incredible flying experience, we just got unlucky on this turn. The food is quite incredible, the entertainment bar-none the best and the amenities makes you feel like you're in business class."
Cons: "The flight had an overall 3 hour delay and they completely lost our luggage upon returning from Europe and to a wedding. That's worst case scenario."
Pros: "Staff and the choice of movies in the entertainment system."
Cons: "The food could be better. Should provide choice of fruits, salad, yogurt etc. The economy class seats should be made more comfortable for long flights. The seats are ok if it is a 4 or 5 hour flight."
Pros: "I was surprised to receive a pair of socks, sleeping eye cover and toothbrush/toothpaste. Great courtesy and attention to detail by the flight crew."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and friendly."
Cons: "The plane seemed old compared with my flight to Dubai the morning of May 4, 2017."
Pros: "Economy class is very comfortable, crew was pleasant and food was good. Overall the 13 hour flight felt pretty painless."
Cons: "I wish the crew would have done a better job controlling passengers who were trying to unload luggage from the overhead while the plane was still taxiing. I had a bag dropped on me and the crew didn't seem to have control over passengers who were blatantly disregarding instructions."
Pros: "Everything was very nice,, one of the nicer flights i have had in a long time and i fly often,, it didnt hurt that the flight was nearly empty,, so i had basically the whole section in the back to myself,, aside from that, the seating was comfortable and more roomy than others,, and the entertainment system was quite nice,, good sound,, larger hd screen and wide selection of programming,, also very convenient inputs for powering up"
Cons: "the bathroom smelled like pee and i was the first one to use it on the flight,, so perhaps some better cleaning maintenance and some type of air freshener"
Pros: "Girls were very helpful and there was one Italian jental man was very kind and co-operative. However sits were very uncomfortable. Food was ok. There were very little healthy choices. overall it was good."
Pros: "My only regret was waiting this long to try Emirates from Milan to JFK They are superior in every way possible. Service food entertainment seat comfort and room And they are price competitive No wonder American Airlines has given up on Europe and become an airline for Miami and South American they are not even in the game. Never ever ever would I fly on AA even if the ticket was 20 bucks Fly emeriates they are the best"
Pros: "Everything was just fine just wish they can come up with a better name than economy class"
Pros: "I would like to say this is the most horrific experience I have ever had traveling and using Kayak. I was late by 10 mins getting to the ticket counter and Emirates gave my seat away. I then proceeded to attempt to rebook and the Emirates agent advised they are sold out for the next 3 days and have no flight alternatives to offer. I contact flight network and the person I spoke proceeds to tell me the same thing and there is nothing they can do for me. Basically that I would need to purchase a whole new ticket on another airline as Emirates doesn't have availability. Which I did. Now I'm looking online and Flight Network has my exact flight on Emirates available at same price I paid for my ticket. But now my new ticket purchased to get home is non-refundable. I'm out over 1000 dollars because of bad info. This has been a horrific experience and after being loyal to Kayak for years.... I will never use the site again."
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"
Pros: "i will be recommending Emirates to ally my friends which will ever be able to use them"
Pros: "The in-flight service, food, drink, and entertainment were excellent. If my ticket didn't say that I was on the airplane for more than 9 hours, I never would've guessed it. Flying at its best."
Pros: "Loved the seating space. Comfortable seats and I was able to stretch my legs a bit even though I was in economy. Didn't even feel like I was in the air for almost 9 hours."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit late and could have been organised better."
Pros: "I liked how friendly the staff was and that they do not nickle and dime you for everything."
Cons: "The lack of legroom in Economy."
Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "time delay at Dubai Airport"
Cons: "When at the Dubai plane got delayed for 3 hours they did not make the announcement and nobody knew what is going on. That main man at the counter did it behaves the way they should. More then 3 hours delay with 500 people have lots of questions. Need to answer with lot of patients. The manger behavior was not appropriate with one lady with the kids."
Pros: "الشكر للاماراتيه على مجهوداتها الكبيره"
Cons: "الطيران الاماراتي ممتاز جدا والخدمات ممتازه جدا جدا تحتاج شي بسيط وهو تقوية الواي فاي فقط طيران جميل جدا"
Pros: "Everything else was good."
Cons: "Landing at JFK was not smooth. One of seat was defective."
Pros: "The movie selection is always good."
Cons: "The crew on this flight were rude which came as a shock to myself as I usually have a great experience flying with Emirates. I wish that was the case this time."
Pros: "The staff was nice, pleasant and attentive!"
Cons: "Loved everything!"
Pros: "The stewards were really fantastic, and what started out as a delay because of air traffic control, wound up landing on time. Really smooth flight."
Pros: "Outstanding, professional, courteous, and highly capable staff; beautiful plane; extremely tasty food; generous beverage offerings; smooth flight, including take-off and landing. Kudos to the entire crew and to the Emirates Airline organization."
Cons: "The seats were very comfortable, but the leg room was inadequate."
Pros: "Everything from check in to arrival"
Cons: "Food , if you serve Indian food it should comes with chapati and not bread bun."
Pros: "The vegan (strict vegetarian) meals are great, and they stick with assigned seats which I like as well. Hindu meals contain meat and are not vegetarian, meaning Hindu meals only exclude beef."
Cons: "Please people, to make everyone else's ride more enjoyable please do not overpack. You really only need one suitcase and one carryon at maximum even if you are staying in a country for a month or longer. Just wash your clothes there."
Pros: "Huge variety of inflight entertainment, food was good, unlimited free drinks, comfortable seats"
Pros: "The seats are roomy in economy and the food and drink service is very nice. The entertainment offered is extensive."
Cons: "I was in 70G and there was a very difficult family next to me. It was not the crew's fault but it made the trip very uncomfortable for me..."
Pros: "Our company has used emirates in the past ( business class) ..this flight was a last minute decision so was booked in economy. We had seats in row 52 BC - a bulkhead outside the mid galley ....it was an incredible experience to watch the crew start eating from containers, peeling apples and making salads from a plastic bag before the passengers were served. The flight attendants when not eating were taking selfies ...so much for the "emirates experience. The curtain was drawn once for about 15 minutes between our seats and tghe galley area. I was so amazed at the lack of professionalism and the amount of food consumed by the attendants I took photos of the constantly stuffing food in their moths and then trying to speak to passengers."
Cons: "See above comments."
Pros: "Seats recline twice as far as usual, lots of room, great service and 3 meals."
Pros: "We flew on time"
Cons: "It was ok"
The staff was extremely attentive and did everything to make the flight comfortable. The atmosphere was relaxing.
Cabin crew were great. Not impressed with the food.
Pros: "Decent seats. Good amenities for a long flight - entertainment, pack with toothbrush/mask/earplugs/socks."
Pros: "Crew was receptive"
Cons: "Food boarding"
Pros: "The crew was exceptional! Seat was comfortable and extra seat not occupied next to me giving me extra elbow room also in addition to sufficient leg room."
Cons: "I would have a few suggestions but it would rise the price of ticket significantly. We got what we paid for."
Pros: "Crew is good. Flight got delayed"
Cons: "Food is good."
Cons: "Mu luggage got broken"
Cons: "Food was just not that great. Too many peppers in everything!"
Pros: "Crew as very helpful"
Cons: "passenger seated next to are rude"
Pros: "Everything was GREAT!"
Pros: "Service by the crew was outstanding, but special mention to Deepika who made sure I had a Business Class experience out of this world, always smiling and checking if I needed anything"
Cons: "The food and the wine selection did not impressed me. Qatar needs to make some changes."
Pros: "On time. No problems"
Cons: "Be aware! "When customers purchase tickets they are paying for transportation for the specific class designated on their ticket and not for specific seat assignments. Seat assignments can never guarantee." This is what they emailed me when they did that to me on my pre-selected & confirmed seats!!"
Pros: "Crew was really amazing."
Cons: "Wifi not working- huge disappointment. Seats a bit hard on A350. The overhead bins on the inside suitable only for tall people."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Qatae Airways is second to non as always"
Pros: "The on flight entertainment is great. It’s very accommodating especially for long flights."
Cons: "Onboarding was ridiculous. They merged two gates together with no instructions to the large crowd of people boarding the plane. We were scheduled to start boarding at a certain time and we didn’t actually board until 45 minutes later. When we asked the attendants when we would begin boarding and did they have any instructions they were extremely rude, laughing with one another and taking selfies. When we we asked for the third time they brushed us off with a time frame. It was extremely disappointing."
Pros: "Had always liked the airline and on board crew members"
Cons: "Ground crew members in Doha airport need attitude check. been spotting these too often. On Board crew members are much better."
Pros: "Older plane Older entertainment system"
Cons: "Older plane Older entertainment system"
Pros: "Stellar crew -- super friendly, served water/juices constantly, polite, attentive. To be commended Great choice of movies and entertainment but no wifi???"
Cons: "This was an older 777 -- no wifi -- pretty surprising on such a key flight at DOH-JFK! This is not the airline's fault but I had a crazy lady next to me who was very disoriented, who could not speak English and needed assistance. No one would deal with her! She had a little pouch with her name on it -- like a UM -- so someone knew something was not right when they put her on the flight. I bought drinks inside the terminal for this 14 hour flight but they were all confiscated at the additional security at the gate!! WTF"
Cons: "carry-on did not fit on center overhead compartment unless I put it side ways (Same carry-on suitcase fit nicely on Emirates airplanes, so the carry-on overhead compartments have been made smaller on Qatar on purpose or by engineering error, and I will not fly Qatar airlines again. Less food options. I went to the Gally and they only had kitkat bars for food. Emirates offer fruit, sandwiches, and many choices at ALL TIMES of the flight for economy class passengers. Entertainment computer (Android based system) ran slow and out of memory at times. Seats were not comfortable for 12hrs flight. My butt was starting to hurt. I did not have this issues on Emirates flights."
Pros: "They do not provide hotel service even in a 11 hour layover saying the ticket is pomotional. If that is the case, why they sell tickets on promotion? Cheap mentality"
Pros: "Comfortable, on time"
Cons: "The planes weren't as comfortable as others I've been on like the double deckers of Emirates. Their economy class was NOTHING special. Everyone talks about how superior Qatar is, but I found nothing special about it...the seats, the food, the entertainment were all basic and nothing fancy. The crew, while very sweet, seemed inexperienced and green to me..but they were lovely and that's all that ultimately matters."
Pros: "Hindu meal only be vegetarian"
Cons: "All is good"
Cons: "Seats on this flight are awful, wonder why they have these seats for long haul flights, not yet all comfortable to sleep on these , I got back pain by the time I got out of the plane."
Pros: "Excellent service from the crew. Flight on time."
Cons: "Some crews are not accommodating."
Pros: "Again, the crew were top notch"
Cons: "Comfort and available entertainment were so-so"
Cons: "They announced everything in English and Arabic and repeated the same announcement multiple times. The entertainment is good but frustrating that it is constantly interrupted with announcement about everything. I have never heard that many on any other plane. The announcement about customs paperwork was long and done 2 times in English and 2 times in Arabic. There safety video is soooo long and again is done in two languages. It was just all too much. Besides that everything was great."
Pros: "Mediocre staff, not very attentive, horrible boarding experience in Doha. Food was inedible, watched a crew member place food she had spilled onto the aisle FLOOR back onto a tray to give to someone as if nothing happened, which prompted me not to anything for an 8 hour trip. DISGUSTING!"
Cons: "I will never purchase a flight with Qatar"
Cons: "I will never ever fly Qatar airlines again. The boarding for this flight in Doha was horrendous. I and a random group of passengers were made to wait with no explanation AFTER our electronics were already cleared to go through yet another security check. They said we were selected for screening but all the other people they took before us were screened the exact same way. It was stressful and traumatizing to stand for 45 minutes with no clear explanation. The crew were clearly new at their job or ill trained. On top of that they consistently ran out of food they were serving and was forced to take the vegetarian option when it's not what I wanted. I could not wait to leave Doha and exit Qatar airways. I hated my experience traveling with Qatar. It was stressful and traumatic. I want a full refund. I will also be advising all my friends to never fly Qatar. It was the WORST!"
Pros: "The was very hospitalty"
Cons: "Every thing was amazing"
Pros: "Great airline...nice staff, very attentive and polite."
Pros: "SPECIALLY THE CREW SERVICE EXCELLENT"
Pros: "Considering how long it was, not much could have been better. It wasn't too crowded, so the seat next to me was free, which made getting some sleep easier."
Pros: "Very spacious, good food & service"
Cons: "is it true that Qatar treats the passengers coming to US differently than the passengers going out of US. I noticed that the crew was giving menu cards for dinner when coming back to US. Food quality is very ad, quantity is small also. same story with snacks. they don't offer enough food overall. The crew should be trained better for int'l passengers."
Pros: "The Steward on this flight was excellent. Very attentive and pleasant. He asked at the end of my flight how was everything. Food was good ."
Cons: "This flight was better than the flight going out to Doha , then to Abu Dhabi. You guys were late landing,and as a result I almost missed my connecting flight, was rushed thru the airport like a lunatic by one of your Reps. Then was told my luggage may not be in Abu Dhabi when I arrive, which it was not. My paid for seat wasn't available and had to sit in the back. Had to fill out a lost luggage report in Abu Dhabi. Was promised my luggage by 4:30 pm . Didn't receive it until 2:30 am next day. Missed my whole first day of vacation as I had no clothes , toiletries, etc . Very angry, and feel I should get a substantial discount on my next flight in March to Dubai. Totally unacceptable !!!!!!!"
Cons: "They supposed to provide Wheel chair for my elderly mother in Law who had a foot fracture, was very hard /painful to walk. I confirmed the wheelchair option well advance before her travel date in Qatar Airways Web site. I got the confirmation also in the Qatar Airways Web site. I usually fly with my family as I have a big family with couple of children and elderly. I will never fly Qatar again, this was the 1st and the last fly with Qatar airways."
Cons: "The first flight of my journey was delayed which made me late for my next two connecting flights. I arrived on vacation a day late. Paid for a hotel and activities that I never used. My bag arrived 5 days late. I had to buy clothes on a daily basis which ate up more time and fun money. The airline gave me nothing except empty promises and dismissive apologies."
Cons: "No entertainment service from Doha to New York"
Pros: "Boarding on time. Crew was very nice except food option."
Cons: "My wife didn't get veg food she is looking for. We asked crew and they said they don't have."
Pros: "The entertainment choices were great."
Cons: "We sat in front of a row of children who kicked the back of my seat for 13 hrs straight. We spoke to a flight attendant about it early on in the flight, spoke to the kids and spoke to the parents. Then spoke to the kids and parents mid flight. And then spoke to them all, including a flight attendant towards the end of the flight. The issue was never resolved. We asked to change our seats but could not. We asked for the parents to trade seats with the kids and they would not. It was the worst, most uncomfortable flight I have ever taken. And I fly regularly for work and for pleasure. It was an absolutely horrible experience. I was actually in tears on the flight because I was so tired, uncomfortable and frustrated."
Rude customer service. Felt some type of prejudice
Terrible experience with cancellations and delays and rebookings. THY suck at customer support in US and thru their partner JetBlue…
Very poor customer service Airport staff has no compassion Hotel stay was worst ever in my life Very rude hotel staff No food provided during hotel stay Flight connected delayed for 6 hours on outbound flight and missed connection due to flight delay on inbound flight
Everything good, Thanks so much
Everything was great with Turkish Airlines.
Cons: "Turkish Airlines are doing great job for customer satisfaction services and timing"
Pros: "Crew was excellent & amazing, The Seat was comfortable & have good space between the rows."
Cons: "only food more improvement, I know that's the effect of COVID 19 VIRUS & IT IS NOT OF THE Turkish Airlines thankfully, but thy are following the rules."
Cons: "Horrible food, crew wasn’t nice"
Pros: "The flight attendants were kind"
Cons: "The airplane was old and the seats were a little dirty"
Pros: "After we missed our flight, we were provided with terrible customer service."
Cons: "We were told to go to the wrong gate. After we missed our flight, we were charged 880 USD to book for the identical flight the following day. We were taken around in circles inside the airport. Absolutely unacceptable. Would not recommend."
Pros: "Another fantastic trip with Turkish Airlines. Everything from their membership in Star Alliance, to their awesome customer service, to their fantastic tasting food."
Cons: "Food in TK used to be great... not anymore!"
Cons: "Luggage handling could be a lot better. Two out of four of my bags were damaged beyond repair"
Pros: "Great options to watch on tv."
Cons: "Flight was late, horrible process at gate of checking passports and items. Should not happen during a layover. This process should take place when checking in."
Pros: "It was easy and convenient"
Cons: "The airline lost my bag, with contained all my clothes, shoes, jewelry, ps4 gaming concel, and all the games CDs I had , alongside the documents I needed to renew my Visa, which was such an inconvenience getting back, that I had to extend my ticket by a week which also cost me almost $400. Plus the airline staff was rude. That ruined my vacation."
Pros: "It was a traumatic flight"
Cons: "The security check in Istanbul was humiliating and I haven’t received this kind of check in my life specially in a connection flight! In a disturbing way the check was in the gate only and includes separation between man and whomen then examination of our bodies with human hands , opening our bag , no shoes etc."
Pros: "Excellent food"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic"
Cons: "I was disappointed that the two female flight attendants on my side (seats A&B) did not come across friendly, and any request appeared to be a bother. At one point I requested bread and butter, the flight attendant seemed annoyed and said if she can find some, and never came back to me. I went to the galley, where a male flight attendant was working on something. I requested some bread and butter from him, was met with s smile, and was able to locate a roll and butter for me in under a min. Please note, I do not think this was a gender issues, it just happens to be the situation with this case, and I specified it as I do not know the names of the flight attendants, but the airline should be able to identify who was working the different sections."
Pros: "great selection of movies"
Cons: "heat, small seats."
Cons: "They stole Items from my bag"
Cons: "The Turkish Government would not let me into the country to take these flights. I do not know whether I will get a refund."
Pros: "Flight attendants were not helpful or friendly."
Cons: "Flight attendants were not helpful or friendly."
Pros: "excellent service, nice crew, seats are comfortable no complaint on that front Airport check in crew very professional attitude and cooperative I had no glitch whatsoever the whole journey starting in Los Angeles Luggage was promptly taken care of upon arrival"
Cons: "Honestly I have no negative comment to mention All went well I would fly Turkish Airlines again and again"
Pros: "I am not blaming the airline at all for these inconveniences."
Cons: "NOTE: THIS IS NOT A CRITIC OF THE AIRLINE Having personally experienced the latest in the consequences of travel related rules mandated by US public officials, I am yet again left wondering if they, and their families, go through these rules that they impose on the general public. Or if they just breeze into their private airport wings and planes. I doubt they take off shoes, belts, and such, or go through irradiated machines. But going through about 3 extra layers of security while transiting is a bit much. Not to mention the extra hours spent relinquishing and reclaiming laptops etc. Frankly, non of these acts makes anything safer. It is akin to the permanently parked police vehicle on the Brooklyn Bridge in NYC since 9-11. What is that supposed to deter?"
Pros: "Awesome service, comfy business cabin!"
Cons: "Boarding in Istanbul and Tel Aviv was chaotic, no business class boarding. Checking laptop in Istanbul was inconvenient. Lounge Istanbul was awesome however way too crowded to fully take advantage of it. Also should control people and what they takfor food. The lines were long and people would literally pile their plates with massive amounts of food, take it to their seat then leave it. Fix the lockers and add more, they are a wonderful asset but I was not able to take advantage of. Consider limiting access to manage crowds."
Pros: "Your crewsom"
Cons: "Boarding was devoid of any announcements or organization, and was just a gaggle of people shuffling towards a gate."
Pros: "Crew friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Much of food, esp mac and cheese, cold."
Pros: "Pretty much everything except for the fact that they have no entertainment in Russian"
Pros: "I definitely recommend Turkish Airlines because of the services offered and customer service."
Pros: "Everything, starting from the airport's employee"
Pros: "All service, atention, food"
Pros: "Crew are always available and helpful"
Cons: "Food was dreadful. I thought I had chosen a seat online, but discovered I was in a middle seat. Having 3 seats on the sides makes it very difficult for the window seat occupant to maneuver."
Pros: "always happy , great service,pilots are experts,smoothest and softest landings .i'm 49 years old been flying regularly since i was 2 best airline so far ."
Pros: "Everything about this airline is really good. We will flight again as much as possible using Turkish Airlines. Thank you crew and onboard for the great service."
Cons: "Long layover wait in Istanbul"
Pros: "Everything was great! Flight iand boarding was on time and the service provided by crew was simply the best. I enjoyed the entire flight."
Pros: "Not trying to be flattering here but it really is a good airline."
Pros: "I liked the crew and their behaviour very much"
Cons: "I will never be happy for the cramped space but I can see that it has to be so"
Pros: "Service on board was terrible..."
Pros: "When I find the restroom facility with water all over the floor and walls apparently used by a passenger to do a sponge bath. I notified the flight attendants and they immediately clean up the mess and restore the restroom to usable condition. I was very impressed with their attitude in a trying situation. Very cordial flight crew. The little travel kits were an added bonus. Having sandals on a 13 hour flight was a blessing instead of putting on shoes every time you have to to to the WC."
Cons: "The 45 minute wait on the tarmac before take off. It was quite hot in the cabin with no air circulation. And no information from the cockpit as to when takeoff will be."
Pros: "All flight segments were on time, the crew was very pleasant, but the main thing was that I felt that the cabin noise was lower than the other airliners .... ????"
Cons: "no issues"
Pros: "The overall experience was good but small gestures by crew can improve the same significantly."
Cons: "Crew slow to respond or non responsive even for a glass of water."
Pros: "The entertainment choices, including live sports, were excellent."
Cons: "The boarding was chaotic, and we sat on the tarmac for over an hour."
Pros: "There was a lot of service. The crew were attentive or helpful if asked."
Cons: "We boarded the plane and sat for two hours on the plane without taking off. Then we had to all get off the plane with all of our luggage and wait on a hot bus until we could get back on the flight. It wasn't explained what was going on or why we had to do that and it made me late for appointments I had back in New York."
Cons: "Due to a family emergency I was forced to change my flight to a later date and they did a terrible job handling. Would not allow me to change and charged me enormous change fees. I will never fly Turkish airlines again."
Pros: "The age of the plane and the crew."
Cons: "Pre boarding took longer than what it should be"
Pros: "Good movies to watch and food was also pretty good"
Cons: "My entertainment system did not work and the crew did not do anything to try to fix it"
Pros: "Crew was super friendly."
Cons: "I wish I’d have an aisle seat, but flight was full."
Pros: "Crew were very good"
Cons: "We had a delay caused by over filling of fuel"
Pros: "BA has really comfortable arrangements and seats."
Cons: "Boarding at Gatwick was a bit slow and disorganized."
Cons: "Flight from heathrow to Manchester stopped it being excellent alll round as flight delayed over an hour"
Pros: "Crew was mostly attentive and helpful."
Cons: "Had the boarding queues setup and when they got to group 5 they flipped the sign and those of us in front had to go in the back. Once we were in the main queue they opened the 5-9 queue for some privileged traveler and then left it open allowing the back of the queue to become the front."
Cons: "No seat choice even at check in time."
Pros: "Ability to prclear customs, that’s about it........."
Cons: "Going from Air Lingus to American Airlines - they were unable to coordinate our checked baggage. The AA gate agent had no idea what to do. Unsurprisingly, when we landed our bags did not. We are still waiting to see where they are and if we get them back. It seemed that even though we asked and were reassured several times, the team at AA was unable to deal with the luggage transfer"
Pros: "Crew is kind, polite and patient. Food portions are adequate. Entertainment is on par on upgraded 747s to other aircraft in the fleet now."
Cons: "Be careful of the Chicken Curry main. Wasn’t expecting it to be extremely spicy. Seat pitch is tight but generally comfortable due to the unique headrests of these new seats. USB power was provided. Arrival into JFK was terrible. BA’s T7 is so crowded and dated I could literally touch the ceilings above my head while waiting 2 hours for immigration crammed into desolate conditions."
Pros: "Everyone on the team clearly showed up to work making every effort to do their best for the passengers. British Airways is serious about being a top choice Cartier, regardless of class of service and it shows in management, terminal care, operations and amenities and each aspect of the flight."
Cons: "The food was the least positive aspect, but still much better than most. The pacing of beverage, snacks and meals was well coordinated."
Pros: "the plane landed safely"
Cons: "a lot of confusion between in flight staff and ground staff as to where to go and what to do concerning transfers to ongoing flights, security, tight layover etc It was like it was everyones first day on the job."
Pros: "Price was goo £200 cheaper than the BA price"
Cons: "Cabin very cold over the whole journey at the end of the day you pay peanuts get monkeys But BA has a very tired fleet compared to say Emerites"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and well organized. The plane was clean and prepared with blankets and pillows. Updated movies and entertainment."
Cons: "We missed our connection and british had booked us automatically on the next available flight which was helpful. However--- we paid to pick our seats and we got stuck in both middle seats. I also got skipped on the first round of beverage service. The entire crew was congregated in the middle part and when they finally made their way back to the cabin for trash I asked the flight attendant if I could please get a beverage as I was skipped. He said yes let me gather this trash and ill be back. He never returned. Then everyone was served their meals and I then was also skipped. Flight crew congregated again in the middle and my sister and I had to wave our hands up in the air to grab anyone's attention so I could get my meal. At that point they were out of the vegetarian option and I got a small oh we didn't mean to skip you comment. Pretty disappointed with this flight."
Pros: "Great flight attendants"
Cons: "Length of flight was long but there's nothing that can be done about it."
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Great crew. Smooth flight. Excellent timing."
Cons: "It’s been a while since I’ve seen a load out that old on BA. Almost 1st gen personal IFE. The plan as a whole was fikthy"
Cons: "Delayed 4 hours and lied to the entire time that it would “only be 20 more minutes” while we were just sitting in the plane on a very old, uncomfortable plane"
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"
Cons: "I was treated with so much disrespect, I wonder why tho. One of the crew members (a plus sized lady) came off to me as racist, she treated everyone else with a smile and cautious attitude but was so fast to tell me off. Would it be a coincident that the rest people are white like herself? I'm never flying BA again."
Cons: "my trip to England was a nightmare starting with American Airlines not being able to find my flight or my name in the system. It was worse on the return from Gatwick. They also couldnt find me in the system and i blame it all on this Kayak travel site. I will never again use Kayak !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! my trip was a nightmare."
Cons: "Heathrow is now so large that a layover of a bit over an hour is not sufficient to get comfortably from one gate area to another."
Pros: "Ground staff in London was amazing! The flight from Barcelona to London was delayed because of weather condition. Once we arrived in London the ground staff made sure all of us (almost 20 people, lots of kids) could get the flight connection to JKF. The shuttle bus was already waiting for us, the ground staff indicated to us the faster way to get to our gate after passing through security checking. Everybody could get the JFK flight!"
Cons: "I'm gluten intolerant and there was no gluten free snack!!! Lunch was served as soon as the plane took off, but for the next 5h of flight nothing else was served. I asked if they had some gluten free snack, they told me there were going to check, but they never got back to me with an answer. I was starving arriving in NY. Aircraft was too old and it didn't have USB charger. And the individuals screens were also too old and had really bad quality for watching movies! It seemed that I was in a flight from 20 years ago!"
Pros: "Excellent service on both British Airways flights. Wonderful people! Comfortable seats, timely boarding process, and good communication from our captain"
Cons: "We lost our in-flight entertainment just a couple hours into the flight... the staff did all they could to try to fix it to no avail, and collected blue cards from all passengers affected. They were very nice. There was nothing they could do."
Pros: "The flight attendants and crew were great"
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice. The food was actually tasty."
Cons: "The flight was very bumpy and the landing not pleasant. The pilots and crew didn't give any warnings to prepare you for it. The seats are uncomfortable and too close together."
Pros: "Pilot was great in bad whether."
Cons: "Pork sausage for dinner, we couldn't believe it!! Not a enough food provided to the flight so we got what was available. Our first family vacation to Europe and had a awful experience for my family."
Pros: "Seats were comfy, good choice of films. Food was good."
Cons: "There are other airlines with a brand I associate with more. Any airline can get me to London for more or less the same price; I may as well do it with a company that aligns with my view on life."
Pros: "That the flight was not bumpy and due to bad entertainment I had good views out the window"
Cons: "Tight seating, old airplane, a bit dirty, most info was in Spanish!? Could not hear overhead announcements,"
Pros: "I felt very safe on the plane because security monitoring in London was extremely efficient."
Cons: "Portion of food for dinner inadequate. Offered chicken and pasta but ran out of pasta. The man next to me wanted pasta but got chicken. The woman in front of me however got pasta even though she was told there was no pasta. She insisted she could not eat chicken. The flight attendant able to come up with pasta however. Most of the entrainment screen around me on the flight not working. Some however came on later in the flight."
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Guy next to me took up half my seat and the staff did nothing Food was awful"
Pros: "This flight was what you should expect - smooth boarding, helpful and friendly crew, good food and drinks service etc."
Cons: "The wash bag is now so limited- the bare minimum (and that's in business class!). No comb even. No face wipe either. It's an obvious thing to economise on from the airline's point of view, but it doesn't really have to cost them anything. And the choice of new films was somewhat disappointing - they are relying quite a lot on older films. and no duty free at all (the crew were apparently not given the correct paperwork to allow sales). This was disappointing as I had been hoping to pick up a dual SIM gadget. None of these minus points are major, but they detracted from my enjoyment of the flight"
Pros: "The crew was nice in the wake of being delayed for hours."
Cons: "Check in took forever. I wasn't able to check in online and was told "this is the price you pay" when I received word that my wife and I wouldn't be sitting together. Then we went to board far later than we were supposed to. After boarding the plane we sat for easily a half hour not moving with no information. Then find out there is scheduled maintenance which would be another hour. AC was shut off and got hot. Started to deplane but we were in back and didn't make it because they reveresed their decision. Got back on and said we would be leaving shortly. In all we say on the plane over 3 hours prior to take off. Never flying with your company again. Easily the worst experience flying ever."
Pros: "entertainment options were excellent. i was unexpectedly upgraded. my luggage made it through the short connection, which is not what you expect from heathrow."
Cons: "i had a short connection through heathrow and as my incoming plane was delayed. i was told i had to get a boarding pass at heathrow for the next flight because they could not give me one when i first checked in. the line at the transit desk was very long and i ended up asking a security man to let me through and i was sent to another desk that was shorter. if i hadn't have asked and looked stressed i might have missed my flight."
Cons: "No internet"
Pros: "The staff were friendly."
Cons: "When I checked in I was told to go to a separate desk to have a seat assigned. There turned out to be a shortage of seats and I had to wait until boarding closed to find out if I had a seat on the plane. Having paid $1600 for a return flight I find it unacceptable that a seat is not guaranteed. The BA staff were helpful, but your system is ridiculous."
Pros: "We had ONE customer service rep in Heathrow who was incredibly helpful and tried to help get us home. She was wonderful."
Cons: "Their delayed flight from Milan to London caused us to miss our flight from London to NY, and thus our flight from NY to Denver, which was standby. When we explained how difficult it would be to catch another flight to Denver from NY with it being the weekend, and attempting to get a flight to another airport with higher chances of getting us home, their customer service rep informed us that as long as they 'fulfilled their contract' to get us to NY, it wasn't really their problem how we got home (or couldn't get home) after that."
Pros: "The space, blanket and the staff."
Cons: "The entertainment was poor The TV stopped working and didn't work for the whole trip I was moved to another seat The refreshment could be more I don't enjoy pre poured 1/2 cup of juice and water."
Pros: "I disliked that I couldn't check in online. I disliked that they told me I didn't have a seat when I tried to check in"
Cons: "I disliked that I couldn't check in online. I disliked that they told me I didn't have a seat when I tried to check in"
Cons: "I had called vayama with whom you booked the flight, 5/28, and asked for seats together with my daughter who was, I THOUGHT, also flying on the same plane as I..I had asked the rep for a specific flight,nAA 105 and was told that it was code shared with mine, IB4611 but, when I looked at the seats 24 hours before the flight, on 6/15, I saw that I had been booked on a totally different plane and different departure terminals . The only thing similar was the departure and arrival times into JFK. I made a long distance call from the UK and got a really obnoxious rep who was very condescending, dismissive and annoyed that I couldn't understand her pronounced accent . When I said, " pardon, could you please repeat that", she was very snippy and snapped at me! No wonder they have such crappy ratings/ reviews. She was absolutely no help whatsoever after I explained that my daughter was visually impaired and HAD to be on the same flight as I, all she told me was that there was no record of the convo I had claimed to have with their rep on 5/28 and then she hung up on me. I will never use kayak again nor its outsourced affiliates . I am pissed, Weibo Benwitz"
Pros: "Both of my flights had no person in the middle seat, so I was able to spread out more in the space which made it much easier to get some sleep, especially on my red eye flight!"
Cons: "No complaints; great service! I'd definitely fly British airways again."
Cons: "My luggage didn't make it to NY. Very upset about this because I have no idea when it will be delivered!"
Pros: "Friendly crew, free alcohol (albeit horrible beer), easy boarding and exiting."
Cons: "2.5 hour delay, personal lights in the cabin didn't work, entertainment screens were broken and/or bad quality."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great; very attentive to passengers' needs."
Cons: "Passengers were hanging out by exit door with no regard to rules and were not giving any warnings-this made other passengers anxious. My seat was broken so I could not recline when the passenger in front of me fully reclined. Very unfortunate!"
Pros: "one of my employee was left at Spain because his information wasn't found in the your sistem. he is still in Spain and His name is Julio Cesar Paul."
Cons: "Customer Service had no clue what the hell they are doing. My flight got cancelled and im overseas. Im using international minutes to talk to these imbeciles and they tell me i have to call finnair. Finnair reps were very helpful. However, they told me i had to call BA to confirm my ticket. These idiots could do jack. Apparently they had no idea what they are doing. I just hung up and dealt with it at the airport. It was a hassle at the airport too but they were very accommodating and nice.. Unlike the the idiots on the phone!"
Pros: "great selection of in flight entertainment."
Cons: "At JFK there was a long wait for the luggage, which ended up not being delivered to the carousel, after we had waited for almost 2 hours. Granted, there was some snow and some technical issue since the fire alarm system was flashing the whole time, but still, there were only two announcements made during that time, and the second one to let us know that we'd have to arrange for delivery of our luggage on the website. By that time, it was past 11;30pm and everyone was dead tired, when the flight had been supposed to land at 7:25pm. I think the blame is to be laid on the JFK installations. Everywhere I travel in Europe, airports are in brand new condition, and not only departure areas like in the US. No wonder baggage delivery was a mess after just a little snow/"
Pros: "We did land OK but JFK was snowed in and this probably caused the many problems we encountered. Iq always have bad luck flying in and out of that airport so I don't completely hold BA accountable. Staff we polite and efficient."
Cons: "We were stuck in the plane for an hour and a half after landing at JFK. On the ground they ran the engines so loudly my husband got a terrible headache. We mentioned the noise problem but were ignored. Once allowed to debark we were crammed into a long cold hall and waited another 1/2 hour before moving towards immigration clearance. To top it off the baggage conveyer system was broken and we waited another 45 minutes before they shut the building down. So we left with no luggage exhausted. One piece of luggage was left back in London. Not pleasant at all. We did get our luggage returned 3 days later. That was good."
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Airplane traffic in jfk"
