Deplaning suggestion: Inited could take a page from other countries airlines and ask that we remain seated until theorie in front of us deplanes. Easier on everyone that way

Deplaning suggestion: Inited could take a page from other countries airlines and ask that we remain seated until theorie in front of us deplanes. Easier on everyone that way

Loved the customer service and the fact that everything was on time, the served refreshments are a cherry on top

Flight was moved forward by 2 hours with 3 days notice. This meant I could not connect from flight from Johannesburg. So did not take the flight and drove to Kasane. Will never use Air Botswana unless absolutely necessary. Mark

There was no entertainment, but that is not expected on a flight less than 2 1/2 hours. Uber clean aircraft, good boxed meal and friendly flight attendants. Very please with the experience

The check-in line was long and people were put in front of me in the line even after I said I had checked in online. It took me an hour to finally get my documents checked and drop my suitcase. It was horrible!

Pros: "The crew was mazing and the seats are so comfortable."
Cons: "To me everything was excellent from the captain to the flight attendants i was impressed i have been to all domestic flights but Airlink is the best and after yesterday flight i decided that Airlink is the one for me onwards. The only thing i can suggest is the points program then the sky will be the limit for you. Keep up the good work guys BIG UP."
Pros: "Flight was on time and crew was great"
Cons: "good short flight"
Pros: "Time keeping, plane was well sized and okay"
Cons: "Didn’t get a single sensible meal!"
Pros: "Attendant was professional"
Cons: "It was okay"
Pros: "It's a shorter flight so, no IFE. The front row of the business section was nice. I'm glad that reserving those seats worked out for this flight, although it didn't on all the other flights."
Cons: "No entertainment available, and the BUQ departure lounge could be improved"
Pros: "flight was on time food and drink"
Pros: "I was forced to give my carry on bag to be put in the hold. They said that it would not fit in the plane. When we got to our destination, i found that a large sum of money from my bag was stolen,"
Cons: "Security of our baggage should be better. And if you cannot fit the standard carry on bags, then please say so when people make their booking so that they can pack accordingly and do not bring carry on bags that they have to give up at the last minute. it is impossible to remove items last minute."
Pros: "Tayla the stewardess was very sweet!"
Cons: "Nothing. It’s a small plane!"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Luggage was riffled through and item stolen"
Cons: "Delayed flight with close connecting flight and none of the flight or ground crew were able to communicate with the connecting flight gate agents. No priority for deplaning and tarmac shuttle was given to those with close connecting flight. Had to sprint through airport and barely made connection."
Pros: "Amazing crew, wonderful short flight and delicious snack. Could not be any better."
Cons: "Just continue the wonderful service."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Pros: "There was hardly anyone on the flight so I got a row to myself! Also the flight was fast and smooth and landed on time despite boarding about 45 minutes late"
Cons: "At the beginning they needed 8 people to move up front for take off which was weird but obviously not anyone’s fault, and if the flight was full wouldn’t have happened, so it’s probably not something that could be done differently but was just weird."
Cons: "The staff at Vic Falls airport tried to charge me several hundred dollars for extra bag fees. The fee kept changing depending on who I was speaking with and when I agreed to pay with my AMEX they said they did not take AMEX so they eventually waived the fee. This was only done after showing the manager a printed copy of my booking which listed that passengers are allowed 2 checked bags each. This was all done in the office of the South African Airways who I assume was managing the Airlink flight."
Cons: "Johannesburg Airport was terrible and every where we turned in the airport we got misinformation and people tried to scam us for tips including airport employees."
Pros: "Boarding was on time, and flight went smoothly. Loved the timing, giving me the whole day to explore the area and move on to the National Parks in the area. Breakfast at Uppington Airport is the best!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Airport check in went quickly and smoothly! Waiting lounge was excellent!"
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Pros: "We were on a small cramped plane. The food was horrible."
Cons: "Rude employees at the counter in the airport."
Pros: "The crew were great."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours. We barely made our connection flight in Johannesburg, which resulted in us having to run through the airport. We did not have time to get dinner."
Pros: "Easy process to get to Joberg. Flight was on time and comfortable."
Cons: "Similar to some other reviewers we had to completely exit the terminal at JNB and then check in for our international flight sequence on Qatar, this was easy but caused a little anxiety, especially after learning that the total checked baggage for one person on the air link is 30kgs (66lbs) which is less than standard international weights. We had to pay extra for the “overweight” bags but the cost was reasonable. I would use the airline again."
Pros: "Quick cool spacious"
Cons: "They left us in a hot hot bus for a long time at terminal and on the run way."
Pros: "The plane from Antanarivo as on time - quite an accomplishment for Madagascar!"
Pros: "Stewardess was very professional, spoke clearly, was very helpful. On time and affordable rates!"
Pros: "the seats"
Cons: "Food was cold"
Pros: "Comfortable transfer to Skukuza from Johannesburg"
Cons: "The flight was not listed on the departure monitors in the hall where we arrived. We had a hard time finding the terminal and then the check-in counters and the departure gate. If the flight would have been listed it would have been easier, no asking around required."
Cons: "Staff not so friendly"
Cons: "The flights were not operated by South African Airways, so when we arrived to Johannesburg we had to take our luggage and register it again and make a second check-in. Because both flights were operated by airlines different from South African Airways we were not able to accumulate our One World miles."
Cons: "Spraying a very potent chemical in an already crowded small plane that send people home sick is not the best way to treat passengers. We do recognize there is probably a reason for doing it. Has the airline consider the impact on those with respiratory issue? Some passenger could not stop coughing until their final destination. Hope they find a better way."
Pros: "Everything was good - timely, service, check in, etc."
Pros: "The flight attendant was really friendly and accommodating. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Can add a few more options for snacks. The chips and candy are pretty crappy."
Cons: "No priority boarding. 15 minutes waiting inside a cramped bus. First three rows in plane are curtailed off but seats are exactly the same as the rest of the plane. Beverage selection was poor and again same as in economy. The lunch was the only difference: a plate of chicken instead of a sandwich. SO WHAT DID I GET FOR PAYING BUSINESS? a curtain, a plate of chicken and exclusive access to the toilet at the head of the plane. Shame on SAA for selling this as a SAA business flight. Or Kayak for wrong advertisement. In the future I will definitely not pay for business as it is absolutely not worth it and will try to fly this portion with Air Botswana"
Pros: "Seats wider (or seemed to be so) than most economy flights. Flight crew courteous."
Cons: "Have lived in Madagascar for almost two decades and have never seen such disorganized boarding. No signage, staff all the same uniforms (thus no visual clues), no gate noted on boarding pass. Very frustrating. Two Airlink flights were leaving at the same time due to a delay for one flight, so better communication needed. Plane toilet disgusting and would not flush."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "I do not understand why the staff wait for all passengers to be on board and close the door to spray this unbreathable air spray. I was suffocating during a few minutes and coughed during the whole flight. My throat still hurts. The cheese sandwich was terrible."
Pros: "Efficient on time no hassle"
Cons: "Cold food. SAA used to serve hot meals. What happened to that?"
Pros: "short, easy flight"
Cons: "Lost baggage. Sent to Jouburg instead. Second day at Cape Grace in dirty safari clothes. Still no bags."
Pros: "Pilot and Stewardess were good and airport was nice. I appreciated the flights from Cape Town to Skukuza and from Skukuza to Johanesberg."
Cons: "Airport crew not able to answer questions outside of their scope of responsibility. I asked a question several times and reply was "good afternoon". finally another person helped and directed me to another part of the airport where I asked the same question and received blank faces until supervisor showed up."
Pros: "It all went as expected. Today, that is excellent"
Pros: "I enjoyed looking out the window as we flew. Interesting countryside compared to what we have where I live in the U.S."
Cons: "Maun airport is small but it gets the job done. The people at the SAA counter were not well versed with checking bags to your final destination when you continued on from Johannesburg."
Pros: "South African Airlines is like flying years ago when you were given respect and special treatment. It's my favorite airline, by far. Actually, it's the only airline I like to fly. I've flown Delta, Lufthansa, KLM and United to South Africa - big mistake. SAA is what I wish all other airlines are. They are first rate."
Pros: "Pleasant experience. Gate personnel and crew were friendly and helpful; plane and seating were comfortable."
Cons: "No flight information signage at gate, and gate boarding public announcements were distorted. Besides being distorted, it was hard to understand the 'English' translated announcement."
Cons: "Delayed flight due to airplane malfunction and caused late arrival and could not make our connecting flight. Had to argue for support to stay in Johannesburg due to the inconvenience"
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was really awesome"
Cons: "More information regarding seating preferences"
Pros: "Great crew, great vegan food (order ahead!)."
Cons: "Ground crew disorganized and unfriendly in both Joburg and Windhoek"
Pros: "great friendly crew"
Cons: "not much could be better, it was a short flight but yet very attentive"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight attendants were rude. Food was horrible. No leg space."
Cons: "The touch screens for entertainment barely responded"
Cons: "Very small, old seats. TVs are old and small and very slow to operate."
Pros: "I loved the fact that there was good leg room - it felt more like premium economy to me. The boarding was timely - no delays at all The food options were good and they had other generous items in addition. I enjoyed the flight, the temperature was just right."
Pros: "Good food and punctuality"
Cons: "messy check in and security procedures. But this may be the fault of Lusaka airport"
Pros: "Crew was excellent, very personable and were able to get drinks and food out within the 40 min flight."
Cons: "Old plane and the one engine started to make a screeching noise which carried on for about 20 min."
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent! They were extremely kind and helpful and always had a smile on their face. The customer rep who was at the checkin counter also was friendly and smiled. I loved it! I cannot wait to fly with them tomorrow, hopefully it’s the same experience."
Cons: "Nothing to say"
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The South African Airways staff were completely disorganised and unprepared for a little delay"
Pros: "The captain was so I informative"
Cons: "The delay caused by the refueling"
Pros: "The sound on my seat and the one next to me not working. On my previous flight my TV was broken This is a long day time flight equipment needs to work"
Cons: "I had to go sit in another seat when I need an aisle as I have a very active bladder. I went back to my seat with no TV"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful."
Cons: "The plane was absolutely freezing even with a winter coat and two blankets. The website would not let me and my friend choose our seats prior to getting passes so we had to keep asking people to switch on both legs of the journey. The bathrooms were disgusting. Pillows are reused."
Pros: "Courtesy of the crew"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Pilots execptional and cabin crew friendly"
Cons: "Good day. My wife and I were supposed to board on the above flight from Maputo to Johannesburg at 11:30am. For some odd reason the flight wad delayed and the plane only departef at 03:15pm. We had a connection flight from Johannesburg to Luanda (DT578 TAAG Angolan Airlines) wich we nearly missed. My luggage didn't arrive in Luanda. So far nothing wrong. Delays are normal. The major problem was the ground crew in Maputo who didn't provide proper information on time. Furthermore after landing in JHB no protection to late passengers in transit was provided. When disembarking I approached a lady at the bottom of the stairs and she didn't have our names on the list so we were on our own trying to find our way through the endless cue at the transfers counter. We made it but I'm sure Hussein Bolt would have lost a race against us. Shame SAA!!! This was the last airline in Africa I would expect a such unprofessional treatment. My ETKT number is 1187098323350. My name is Fernando Macedo and my wife's is Elsa Amaral. My cell number is +258843125748. Sincerely Fernando Macedo"
Pros: "The crew and airport assistants were truly amazing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Direct flight was great, and staff was very friendly"
Cons: "The entertainment system didn't work during the entirely of this 14 hour flight. Also, the staff didn't seem to come around frequently enough with drinks/water"
Pros: "The captain and crew were professional and delivered an excellent service."
Cons: "Entertainment need to be upgraded."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Everything else. There wasn't a choice of meals. In-flight entertainment didn't work. Crew unpleasant. No water offered during flight. I had to go to the galley to request some."
Pros: "Direct from NYC to SA was convenient. Seats were spaced fine."
Cons: "We had a delay of a few hours. Although some time was made up in the air, my connecting flight was going to be very close. I asked the flight attendant to notify SA of the delay for those of us on the connecting flight and she refused. (Overall, with the exception of one woman, I did not see any of the crew even smile across three flights). We were told that there would be a gate agent to help. There was none. It turns out my colleague, who was on the connecting flight, convinced the SA flight to Namibia to wait 30 minutes, which was plenty of time for us to make it. We even saw this on the board. However, with no assistance, we struggled to find the gate. Aggravated, we still arrived at the connecting gate before the flight departed, but no SA agent was willing to help us. They just talked with each other. The flight to Namibia just sat there!! When I returned to the help desk and asked to be switched to an Air Namibia flight in order to get to Windhoek in time to meet my safari, the employee told me that the manager needed to approve the switch, but the location of this person was unknown. The Air Namibia flight was departing in 50 minutes. The Air Namibia crew was SUPERB and helped enormously when I decided to purchase a ticket - at my own expense because the SA manager was still MIA - to fly on to Windhoek. Very, very disappointing. I am a travel planner who sends people all over the world and will not recommend SA unless this is acknowledged. Thank you."
Pros: "The courtesy of the flight attendants"
Pros: "The crew was nice, were so easy to talk to and they were so hospitable."
Cons: "But I do not have appetite of boarding it again due to the rudeness that I was shown by those who were at the terminal 5. I was coming from Washington State. I boarded a flight from Washington to San Fransisco then from there to New York but none of these charged me the carry on bag. When I reached at New York they said your laws (south african airways) does not allow a person to have carry on bag and laptop bag. At this time I had already extra lagguage which I paid $200 and they told me to pay another $200 dollars for carry on bag. They were so rude to me they told me to leave the bag if I do not have money. I was stranded. I tried to tell them that I boarded two flight which they did not charge me. They said the flights has different laws. But when I was going to New York i used the same flight with carry on lagguge and my laptop bag. So I paid $400. When I entered the flight I was shocked to find that almost everyone had a carryon bag. I felt that they did that to me because I was black and they wanted to find advantage on me. I was so stressful because I had no where to go. I used Delta flight when i was coming to new york but I have never experienced this charges. Now international flight experiencing this horrible situation. . True paying $400 because I had carry on bag?? Am still stressful they took a lot to me. They did not gave me receipt. I asked them to give me receipt all what they were answering me was like "just go." I have never been in a such situation. That is why I said I do not have appetite of boarding South African airways again. Is it true that your laws doesn't allow people to have carryon luggage? If it is true why some customers had the carry on luggage?? my carry was small it was not 23 pounds. Am still feeling pain for what they did to me. I know the name of the woman who was rude. If you treat passengers like that, there will be no good. The complain customer."
Pros: "Everything about the trip"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Everything except entertainment"
Cons: "entertainment"
Pros: "How helpful and wonderfully kind each person was. The service was great. I enjoyed the vegetarian options. The briyani was chicken and I was able to eat around the chicken —delicious and tasty. The crew were cheerful and a refreshing relief to the long voyage across this planet. I look forward to my ever increasing abundance so I may travel business for at least one leg of the flight each way. Thank you Virgin Atlantic."
Cons: "Nothing you could have provided other than a business class leg each way. Long, long flight across this planet—half way. I would prefer more English and Foreign movies, please. Unfortunately I left my prescription reading glasses on flight VA602 and Jacques Nortje at Heathrow was kind enough to go looking for them at the lost and found of Virgin Atlantic—to no avail. Black hard case with blue rimmed glasses and a blue cleaning cloth. His service was a godsend—enabling me to stay flight side whilst he went land side so I did not need to go through security for an unaccomplished mission as the glasses were not there."
Cons: "Check-in gates open at 3!? So I have to light luggage around London. The crew wasn't the friendliest, and there were more excuses than help on the flight. The in-flight entertainment and the remote did not work. I had 11 hours of staring into space cause I couldn't the reading light on Twice my in-flight entertainment was reset and on both occasions no crew came to check if it was really fixed."
Cons: "International travellers need to be warned that larger cabin bags may have to go in the hold."
Pros: "Puctuality"
Cons: "Lack of entreteinment"
Pros: "Everything was fine, only the entertainment system was out for the first four hours of the flight Food was just okay - no snack was offered mid-flight."
Cons: "Entertainment system was not working for at least the first four hours of the flight"
Pros: "On time, shorter flight"
Cons: "Crew was rude, freezing on flight even with 3 blankets, video was upside down, seats very narrow and hard"
Pros: "The planes were clean and well maintained."
Pros: "Hospitality wz good Cleanliness inside"
Cons: "All was ok"
Pros: "no zones, so when they call the flight, first in line with a ticket gets to board first"
Cons: "There is no jet way/loading bridge connected to the terminal so you walk outside to reach your aircraft. Our boarding took place on a nice day but if the weather was poor then you would be subjected to that environment,"
Pros: "Voyager programme Efficient and friendly crew On return flight they checked passengers hand luggage and stopped the overweight and excessive bags - brilliant as makes flight comfortable for all"
Cons: "Both flights delayed Return flight was an old plane needing some TLC Voyager customer care sucks - they really need a mobile app On return flight they helped themselves to snack in the front pouch of my checked in bag"
Cons: "Crew pathetic and completely absent and unhelpful."
Cons: "My flight was delayed from Harare. I almost missed my connecting flight out of Joburg. Had to run not to miss it and I am 74years old."
Cons: "Seats were so small and squashed on lax to jhb flight 16 hours Zero way to charge devices - no usb etc Very few of the entertainment consoles actually worked Food poor Help yourselves to water which was nowhere to be found Lost our baggage not once but twice No help rebooking connectors after SAA delayed our flight from Harare for 2 hours - took us 3 days to get home"
Cons: "Good, chairs"
Cons: "Older plane without a legitimate business class. Seat was broken so I had to change seats."
Pros: "I liked that the attendants were very helpful. The flight was smooth. We had a bumpy take off. The landing was smooth. We got in Joburg a little late but we made it"
Cons: "The immigration staff in SA wasn't nice at all. They were very harsh and apathetic. Then we got delayed so bad when some other guy locked himself out with his car in the tarmac. We ended up being delayed all the way and we missed our flight from DC to Chicago. On our way to Harare our suitcases were missing. We had to incur more expenses in the city coming back to the airport , we got charged $148 on top of that by the Harare immigration guys and we had to spend a lot in the restaurant because of that"
Pros: "Clean modern cabin and professional flight crew."
Cons: "Special order meal not delivered without explanation. Meal not on board when inquired about it."
Pros: "Read comments above !"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The crew was professional and polite once on board."
Cons: "They changed the gate without making any announcement, then lost my luggage. Not exactly a crowd-pleaser."
Pros: "Confusion without any airline staff presence on the announcement of a 10-hour delay of my return flight, with no compensation for forced overnight accommodation and repurchase of internal later domestic connection as a result of that delay. A week after my complaint was lodged with their head office by email, I've still had no reply."
Cons: "Ancient plane, clearly no backup planes, no wonder they have to take 10 hours to repair them."

Delay. Long wait in line. Poor communications.

Cons: "Exiting passengers from the rear exposed the entire flight as people had to walk past those seated from the back to front. Great social distancing and we'll done British Airways"
Pros: "No and no."
Cons: "Very crowded in.club class. Way lower standard for business class as compared to the other airlines."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and everything was perfectly on time!"
Cons: "4 hs delay"
Pros: "The flight was on time and landed early"
Cons: "The bags could have come out earlier and the food could be better"
Cons: "I made a mistake in my daughter's surname while booking online, BA refused ro change it at check-in and forced me to buy a new ticket for her."
Pros: "Leg room fantastic"
Pros: "The crew were very attentive and there was a large variety of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "I am not a heavy set guy but the seats were unreasonably close to each other, this meant that when you eat a meal your elbows push into your sides making it hard to bring food to your mouth."
Cons: "Direct flights to and from South Africa to USA not via Middle East"
Cons: "Got a flight delayed and missed my connection. Had to wait >12hrs for next flight"
Cons: "Very narrow seats"
Pros: "The crew, the food and the smooth journey."
Cons: "Seating is a big problem. I am only 192 cm tall and cannot really fit my legs into the space. Have them out in the corridor"
Pros: "That the flight was on time."
Cons: "not applicable."
Cons: "Seat was broken. Reclines without requesting. Tray also needs attention. Seat 15C"
Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "Nothing. Pretty good for a short trip."
Cons: "Better business class seats"
Cons: "Delayed, twice!"
Pros: "New Years flight... very special. Great staff and grear entertainment on board"
Cons: "The flight data was not showing... could have been interesting especially on a New Years flight"
Pros: "This was a charter by BA. Airbus A320 with amazing legroom. Was slightly annoyed by them not having coffee ( to wake me up for the drive home) but I suppose I get why they weren’t serving hot beverages."
Cons: "The beverages thing above."
Cons: "Don’t like the business class seating configuration. The entertainment system played up and only worked in half the cabin. They tried to fix it without success"
Pros: "The A380 is roomy with large overhead bins. Its quiet and smooth. Flight was on time!!"
Cons: "It was impossible to select a seat in advance. I could not even get to seat selection at online checkin. It was very frustrating. When I went to BA in London and Los Angeles they said it was responsibility of AA and when I went to AA in London & Los Angeles they referred me back to BA. Why can I not choose seats like on other airlines????"
Pros: "BA in South Africa run a clean efficient airline. Planes are new crew well trained and food is good."
Cons: "Preseating totally random no matter your status. Booked state of my choice well in advance and was presented at the back of the plane on check-in"
Pros: "I liked that we landed 30 minutes in advance for both flights to and back, compared to the other parallel flight via SAA which was delayed 2 hours when we arrived back."
Cons: "I didn't like the cheese roll I asked for as the whole roll and cheese was literally stuck to the bottom and parts of the bottom of the roll were mushy. The staff were professional but lacked personality and seemed a little hollow."
Pros: "I liked the seats that I got. Staff were friendly and it was a comfortable flight overall."
Cons: "There wasn't enough drinks (water etc) coming around after meals."
Pros: "Food was tasty"
Cons: "Was delayed"
Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding."
Cons: "The way that the crew (both in economy on right of plane) spoke to, and handled sensitive situations with several of the passengers in a loud and rather rude manner. This is not the British way that I have been accustomed to on previous BA flights, and is rather upsetting. The crew were very abrupt in general, and did not have that seasoned and polite demeanor which I expect from BA."
Pros: "BA moved me on to the Kulula flight without any fuss and gave me a meal voucher."
Cons: "I got to the airport to find that my 19:15 flight had been delayed to 22:15. I hadn't received any notification from BA and still do not know the reason for the delay. The only other option available was for BA to put us on the 20:20 Kulula flight to Lanseria and then shuttle us from Lanseria to OR Tambo. It really is not pleasant to get back home so late on a week night and not even be given any warning or any reason for the huge delay."
Cons: "Customer service - useless and with attitude. Couldn’t check in for the flight either on ba.com or over the phone."
Pros: "Crew were excellent. Very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Boxes under the seat in front took up legroom (but it did ensure good entertainment options). Could have offered some more drinks."
Pros: "The staff was great, friendly, helpful and professional."
Cons: "I thought the food lacked imagination, was skimpy and too hot. I burned my mouth several times. I really do not like having to pay for a booked seat. I have special needs at my age and so booking early is how I typically make sure I can access the bathrooms easily without climbing over sleeping passengers. I picked flight for the price, but in the end I should have stuck with Delta, KLM and Air France and got the extra miles as with seat bookings and only one bag allowance, what I ended up paying did not make it worth it. Oh well, live and learn. Seats were tight, anyone bigger than me would have really struggled."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "My wife and I having to sit in separate seats when there were seats available next to each other. Being charged excess baggage when one suitcase was weigh under weight"
Pros: "British Airways makes you pay for water!!! I accept paying for food and drinks but water should be free Also their machines to pay on board don’t accept USA credit cards so I couldn’t pay but a kind flight attendant allowed me to buy with card and she hand wrote info"
Pros: "All the normal stuff of flying domestic."
Cons: "The way that my brand new suitcase was damaged on the flight and BA just said that handles are excluded from bag damage. Thus, they can do what ever they want with your bag's handles, manhandle it and not take any responsibility. My suitcase was clearly damaged by the way it was handled since i booked it in till i received it again and they just said sorry...there is nothing we can do for you!!! Now that is is poor customer service."
Pros: "I have physical limitations and required assistance stowing overhead luggage and help getting out of seat. Crew were terrific. Wheelchair assistance also great. Travels on my own."
Cons: "For the second London trip in a row, my return flight to BWI was cancelled. Not weather, not equipment, just cancelled."
Pros: "Daeparture was delayed by more than 2hours due to some technical issue"
Cons: "Quick boarding"
Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Boarding was late no communication as to why Limited to no choice for entertainment"
Pros: "Made up for time due to a big tail wind"
Cons: "Took off late and had to wait 45 minutes for luggage"
Pros: "Flight was on time,actually ahead of time."
Cons: "Aircon was not efficient. Very hot in the plane."
Pros: "The space on the A380 is nice, comfortable seats, and the crew was very considerate"
Cons: "No between meals drinks (like water, etc.) or snacks left out on this 11 hour flight. The seats are still a bit close together... for the comfort of a long legged man behind me, I was not really able to recline my chair at all."
Pros: "Aside from the typically narrow seats, the service included all the hallmarks of higher-tier service, such as hot towels, cloth napkins, a good meal, and so on. The crew was attentive, as well."
Pros: "Timely."
Cons: "The airplane was really old. The screens wouldn't start for a really long time. Very, very few options for movies and the screen and sound had terrible quality. Food was not really good."
Pros: "Staff was extremely friendly"
Cons: "Seats were too close and comfort was hard for the long flights. I wish premium economy was better explained to one world partners prior to booking so there would be access to better seats."
Cons: "$100 just to choose a seat ? $100 for a 2nd bag? A Kellogg's bar for breakfast? Shame on them."
Pros: "Strong tailwind brought us in 30mins ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Nothing. Was a smooth and friendly flight. Cabin crew were courteous and efficient."
Cons: "Took forever to serve cold drinks and food. Said we were going to have a short flight due to tail wind so they would not serve hot drinks. Mean while we landed at the expected time of arrival."
Pros: "Great food. Ground staff were very accommodating."
Cons: "Flight crew attitude. Cramped seating."
Pros: "Everything was good after we finally left."
Cons: "Due to mechanical issues, flight was canceled. Missed a day of our honeymoon as a result. Compensation offered as a result was unsatisfactory."
