This flight, the films are a bit better but still not the most recently films are on offer. Nobu's seafood soup noodles was the best!"
Cons: "Not interested in the menu's main courses. Fruits were not sweet at all. Must improve on your cappuccino. Nobu's seafood soup noodle did not come with chopsticks."

Cons: "Food is not up to the standard. They make announcements that there will be snacks like sandwiches and ice creams, but they don't offer that openly. You have to ask for snacks. Now we, US citizens don't like to ask for food just so you know. The crew should offer. if we don't need the food, we can always say no."

Cons: "Too hot in the plain"

Cons: "Tightly set seating was very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Our Turkish Airlines flight was late boarding and passengers were upset about not being able to make their connecting flights. The crew handled it well, but anxiety was high. The food is always good and one of the reason I fly Turkish Airlines on a regular basis."
Cons: "Passport Control at Ataturk International was a nightmare with hundreds of people ahead of us in the queue. No Police to secure the area, so people rushed the line pushing us aside and jumped the queue, this happened repeatedly. I would advise people NOT to fly into this airport and expect to make your connecting flight, because it doesn't play out well at all. We were in line for 2 hours and witnessed people pushing, shoving, yelling at strangers and generally acting like animals. I found the whole experience highly disturbing."

Pros: "The food was so bad"
Cons: "The service horrible"

Pros: "They put a fabric pad on the seat to make it softer . I'm 6' and was comfortable. They have nice children's toiletry kits. Great entertainment system, tons of movies and shows."
Cons: "If you sit the the second cabin on the 777 they run out of buns and champagne by the time they get to you which is unacceptable for business class and they only finished the meal service 2 and a half hours into a 10:30 pm departure flight which is way too slow. They tried to lie to me that they didn't have champagne but I saw them opening 2 bottle when I went to the front lavatory. Between meal services crew is non existent."

Pros: "food"
Cons: "Delayed For more than an hour"

Cons: "Why does Turkish Air boarding always have to be so chaotic - pushing and shoving, etc. Why cant TK control their business class space - people from economy always coming up for bathrooms when there are plenty in the back....."

Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"

Pros: "Loved how friendly the staff was and wanted you to feel at home"
Cons: "Nothing out of the ordinary, seats can be a bit cramped but that can't be helped on a long flight"

Pros: "The saving grace for the trip was my segment of flight from Istanbul to Antalya. Excellent seating, service and overall experience. Thank you."
Cons: "The flight departed late from LAX thus making me miss my connecting flight to Antalya. It was a long and tiring experiencing for a 74 year old women. Seats on the airplane were so small I could barely get in an out of them. No one to direct me at the gate in Istanbul and explain where I needed to go. Food very ordinary compared to other flights I've taken with Turkish airlines. Thought I was on a different airline flying from Istanbul to Antalya. That segment was excellent."

Pros: "The flight took off and landed as scheduled. Boarding was quick and without any hassle. Food was served with in an effective way, and in a friendly manner. Food and drinks were of a good quality and passengers were taken into consideration. Thank you very much."

Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"

Pros: "The staff from check in to on-plane service was very friendly and courteous and clearly did their best. The suppers were phenomenal! and the other meals were ok."
Cons: "The computers at the check in desk kept going down, but the staff handled this issue very well. The gates REALLY need a digital board that displays upcoming flights so that I can confirm I am at the right gate."

Cons: "It never happened."

Pros: "I used the prime lounge in Istanbul and when it was time to go, I was able to practically walk on the plane without any wait. The seats were comfy and didn't have a ton of legroom but it wasn't bad. The staff we're friendly and helpful. The in-flight entertainment had a pretty impressive selection and had one of the best-designed interfaces I've seen so far (and I've ridden a variety of airlines). Last and most important, the food was hands down the BEST I've had on a plane. Turkish is killing it, they're my new go-to airline!"
Cons: "I really can't complain about anything, even if I try! Maybe the touch screen sensitivity on the entertainment console seemed a little off, but that's just nitpicking"

Cons: "I asked for water but they didn't give it to me. They said they would give it water the same time when they gave tea"

Cons: "Bad bad bad screens on such a long flight are a disgrace. Blurry and dark. Very old. I am a smiles and miles member and fly a lot THY but this was really bad."

Cons: "The flight from Los angeles was 3 hours late when I got to Instanbul Turkey was nobody there to help us I lost my flight and they lie to us about available flights I ask them to speak to a supervisor they told me the only Supervisor was outside the airport they wanted me to pay $30 for a visa and go through customs was the first time I flew Turkish airways and will be the last one"

Cons: "Turkish airlines do not care at all about passengers from other countries (other that western Europe and USA) - my flight was cancelled but the airline reps did not bother to tell 150 plus passengers until the end... passengers got angry and one rep took us to the hotel desk, confusing with boarding passes and passport control on the way - forcing us to waster 3-4 hours; we were provided hotel accomodation at midnight (flight was supposed to take off at 9 pm - maybe they were avoiding to spend on out meals???"

Pros: "I was onboarding and the land crew did not do anything to oraganize the lines when the passengers were trying tto board."

Pros: "the plain is good and there is a big space for the legs. the crew is helpfull"
Cons: "1. There was a delay on the flight from Barcelona to SAW (Turkey) of 2.5 hours. Turkish Airline didn't update us at any time what and why is the delay problem . Due to this, we missed the connetcion flight to Tel Aviv.They took us to another air port(Attaturk) in Istanbul (1.5 hour driving) . They gave us only food vaucher and no compensation for the overall delay(7 hours!!!) 2.Icoud not order a Cosher foo at all TK flights web sitr. WHY ??? 3.the Entertainment is very poor. only one movie and no subtitlse .Music is wired."

Pros: "Crew were very nice and professional."

Cons: "Everything was good no reason not to like turkish airlines. I enjoy everytime i travel from kabul to istambul and from istanbul to prishtina and vise versa"

Cons: "Leg space a nighrmare!! Was uncomfortable for all the 13 hrs of the flight. Terrible experience"

Pros: "It was a 12 or 13 hour flight and except for sitting too much we were never uncomfortable. The service level made me think we were back in the 80's. Hot towels, attentive service, tons of food and free drinks. There was actually one meal that we would have eaten even if it wasn't on a plane. They gave out full size blankets and pretty fluffy pillows. (I bring our own anymore, because you never know if you will get one on most airlines, and if you do they're usually useless). Their entertainment system was amazing. We caught up on all the recently released movies that we've wanted to see for FREE! If only Netflix had this quality of movie offerings. They had fresh flowers in the huge bathrooms. It's that type of attention to detail you just really don't see anymore."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing that could actually be changed."

Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "The flight was effective, on time, the service was very good. Good food"
Cons: "I couldn't understand the entertainment computer. I experienced a much more friendly one at different airlines, and they had a rich variety of content and games.

Pros: "Better headphones for economy Pillows on seat when boarding"

Pros: "Nearly all Flights on time"

Pros: "a320 was comfortable"

Pros: "We had a Lufthansa pilot sitting with us on his was back to Frankfurt. He was definitely good company and taught us a lot about how the airline worked, his family's history working with airlines, and life stories. The flight definitely went fast thanks to Daniel!"

Cons: "I was sick so couldn’t fly, spoke to customer care and they refused to let me change my flight"

Pros: "Space in cabin, friendly crew and nice food"
Cons: "Shorter stoppage ;)"

Pros: "The problem was with the booking, cancelled flights- under stable- but nobody willing to make it right. Flights still screwed up"

Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."

Pros: "We were flying on their newest Airbus A350-900. It’s a bummer. More seats, less room, not a very nice experience for eight hours. Packed in like sardines. I have travelled LH to Eu the last six summers. I intend to look for a new airline."
Cons: "They have cut back on everything: food, service, breathing space. Their breakfast was truly a joke-a small muffin, four tiny pieces of fruit, and a package of two Oreo cookies. For breakfast -agh. And their reduced staffing barely made it around to serve coffee before we landed."

Pros: "Timely, friendly, clean plane"
Cons: "Food was bland!!!"

Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."

Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"

Cons: "Incorrect advice from check in staff at Dublin re transit visa requirements"

Cons: "I was not allowed to take my cabin bag and was forced to check it in at the checkin counter. The reason mentioned to me was the flight is small. Contradictorily, travellers after me in the queue were allowed to take cabin bags."

Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. 11 hour flight. Boring. No seat change available. No reading light, as light controlled by entertainment system. Seats in front of toilet cluster lit up every time door was opened. Crew were slow to react. Wasn't a priority. Ruined the excellent first leg of had from Philadelphia to Frankfurt. Do they run inferior planes to South Africa compared to USA?"

Pros: "on time"

Pros: "Flight was on time. We boarded and left on time. Flight attendants were friendly and courteous. I was happy to get a complementary sandwich and drink on such a short flight. We arrived at our destination earlier than expected. Seats were no frills, but decent. Overall good experience."
Cons: "Boarding is stressful. A free for all. I wish they would announce and board one section at a time. I'm traveling with children! I don't want extra stress of people being so pushy. Also,on arrival the bus back to the terminal was similar."

Pros: "It was all great!"

Cons: "There is no entertainment so I do not know it should be rates."

Cons: "I was denied boarding on the Dublin to Munich leg of my connecting flight from Newark to Munich. My ticket was booked through Lufthansa, but the transatlantic leg of my trip was operated by United. When checking in with United in Newark, I received two boarding passes, one for each leg of the trip. I arrived on time in Dublin for my flight to Munich and tried to board the plane for Munich with the boarding pass I had printed in Newark. After scanning my ticket, the Lufthansa employees at the gate informed me that they had no record of me or my plane ticket in their system. I showed them the email confirmation for my ticket, but they still could not find any record of my ticket in their online system. The employees seemed more concerned with boarding all passengers as quickly as possible than assisting me. After being denied boarding, I had to go back through passport control to change my flight, and ended up getting to Munich nearly 6 hours behind schedule and missed an entire day of vacation. A Lufthansa employee told me that out of every partner in the STAR alliance, United is the ONLY airline they have had this problem with. I find this inexcusable, I will be AVOIDING ANY United/Lufthansa connecting flight from now on."

Cons: "Flight delayed by over 3 hours, inflight entertainment did not work"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly and eager to help, as I was traveling alone with a baby"

Pros: "crew at the gate really excellent"

Pros: "Good service except added an extra flight to my trip and"
Cons: "Pilot strike rerouted added a flight and 12 HRs"

Pros: "New crew on first flight but they we're even"
Cons: "Not much. Left sitting on a plane for over an hour & 1/2. Then taken into a door where I illegally entered the country. My passports seized. No other flight available to Dallas. Sent to Newark, NJ & missed the next flight to Dallas because Lufthansa lost my scooter. Someone pulled it by a wire and it doesn't run correctly. VERY BAD EXPERIENCE!!!"

This was a mass from the start I will never use this airline or Air Canada again they ruin my login and told me it's still usable we had a delayed for three hours on the plane. Never never again!"

Pros: "The flights itself was ok. The flight attendants caused me no problems, and the flights, when I FINALLY got on them, were smooth."
Cons: "everything else. The franfurt airport closure made me miss school because they did not offer extra flights to accommodate all the displaced travelers. I had to stay in the Frankfurt airport for a FULL EXTRA DAY, and every time I tried to get a new ticket, or ask anyone for help, I was given the run around. No one was helpful. I talked to about a dozen Lufthansa employees that day and only one was helpful at all. It was a hellish nightmare. Before my last flight, I was furious with how I had been treated all day and a horrible Lufthansa woman yelled at me for being upset about the situation. Then, when after much hassle I finally got to my destination, I was told my baggage was lost. That was on thursday and I still have not gotten it. i am never flying lufhansa again. This was the worst trip of my entire life."

I was out $200 for the Airbnb (could’ve stayed in the airport cheaper) and $200 for a dinner cruise I slept through. NEVER AGAIN"

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew."

Cons: "Services was pretty weird .. Perse or crew Leader was ok But the assistent Young one was Really bad.. aptitud and not friendly at all."

Cons: "Flight departed 35 minutes late"

Pros: "We were fed a nice pasta meal and offered drinks twice. They also gave a muffin for desert. The flight attendants were very nice and attentive with cheerful smiles. I wish every airline had service this good!"

Pros: "Sound was broken on my TV set!"
Cons: "Called stewardess twice to assist. No response!"

Cons: "infotainment was down. Lost my luggage the flight was delayed"

Pros: "Decent meal (warm Pasta all'arrabbiata), nice little muffin for dessert and standard drinks (coffee & tea were a bonus, as they didn't serve any on a similar flight, from Barcelona to Amsterdam), friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "Poor timing - no reason for a 40 minute delay at take off (plane was fully boarded in time) Old aircraft, shabby, dirty and cramped seats. Coming from my connecting flight from Barcelona, I could clearly tell the different in the quality (and cleanliness) of the aircrafts."

Pros: "Boarding was as expected, crew & food were ok. Nothing else positive to extract out of this flight."
Cons: "Delayed flight, horrible baggae policy when the flight is actually operated by a partner of the company you bought the ticket from and not the actual company. Dirty seats, no in-flight entertainment whatsoever (not even a magazine)."

Pros: "Very friendly crew going out of way to assist in making trip comfortable"
Cons: "Had travelled KLM to Amsterdam on my first flight 27 years ago and the aircrafts are stuck in that age! Lousy seats, poor quality bathrooms, lousy screens, prefer not to fly them"

Pros: "Good flights. Good prices."

Cons: "Bag was lost"

Pros: "Helpful and smiling cabin crew."

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

Pros: "Service impeccable!"
Cons: "They have one line of executive class after the kitchen and toilet, is very noisy."

Cons: "KLM crews look unhappy with their work. Everything they do is a favor not duty."

Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."

Pros: "Good efficient flight crew friendly and helpful"

Cons: "KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Also, really tired of the fake business class on these flights..."

Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "It was so easy to board and I had no inconvenience. It took 4 minutes from when I said goodbye to my family till when I was at the front of the gate."
Cons: "Nothing! It was all great!"

Pros: "The staff was fast and curteous."
Cons: "There is not anything to complain about besides the usual discomfort of travel."

Cons: "Flight delayed, had to take two more flights and was a four hour trip turned into a 12 hour, 4 countries trip"

Pros: "delayed"

Pros: "We really liked the KLM people, from the check in crew to the flight attendants."

Pros: "Excellent service and comfortable flight"
Cons: "Flight delay roughly an hour"

Pros: "Short flight friendly crew"
Cons: "Good flight nothing to complain about. Was spoiled by the entertainment choices on the longer flights."

Pros: "KLM Is an impressive flying experience. We enjoyed the comfortable seats, the in-flight entertainment, and the food. The flight attendants are top notch as well."
Cons: "The only complaint I have regarding my most recent flight was the incredibly rude service staff whom we experienced at the front counter at check-in. After a harrowing cab ride to the airport in which our driver continuously ignored my request to follow the GPS insisting that he knew faster shortcuts, we arrived 40 minutes later than intended. Additionally he dropped us off at the wrong terminal such that we finally arrived at the KLM gate an hour later than we had planned. This was especially frustrating as we are traveling with two small children and made every effort to be punctual and leave early to be sure we got there with time to spare. Not the case today. All of that I could deal with, but when we arrived at the KLM counter, and I apologized to the attendant staff member that we were late and explained that our cab driver got lost, she responded by chastising us first in Spanish and then in broken English. She made sure to make it clear to us that it was our fault and we should not blame the Argentinian cabdriver. The cabdriver was not actually Argentinian, but that is totally besides the point. I was totally taken aback to be treated so rudely as a greeting at the airline counter. My wife share the same sentiment. Nothing like this has ever happened to us before. Thank God, every single airport personnel and of course KLM staff member on board was incredibly kind and accommodating of our children subsequent to this. It saved what otherwise could've been a terrible experience."

Pros: "Flight was quick, professional, friendly."

Pros: "In general, it was ok"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and because of this I missed my connection flight to Amsterdam"

Cons: "Taking off late caused me stress because I had transferring flight within less than two hours in transit originally. So we arrived later about 50 minutes so I had to manage my situation and find my next gate and be on time. And an other thing that I disliked was that I was allowed to have only one baggage which was very unusual for international flight between two countenances. And the crew was not polite enough so she made fun of my Cary-on. In short, I expected more from KLM which is famous for them being "Royal" but not acting as one of them."

Cons: "I had booked a paid seat with extra legroom, but at check in the seat was given to another passenger"

Pros: "Reasonable seat space for economy. Good selection of movies. Food reasonably good. Crew very efficient."
Cons: "Boarding at Amsterdam was disorganized. All economy boarded together. No row number boarding (which was the process for the outbound flight from San Francisco). Lights in economy were not switched off or even dimmed during the flight making it difficult to sleep especially if you had a window seat."

Pros: "Staff very nice, plane clean and nice food"

Pros: "Crew wonderful.N"
Cons: "None for now."

Pros: "quick entry - but it was not a full flight!"

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

Pros: "The pilots gave details of flying conditions and landing conditions. Flight was smooth and on time"

Pros: "Friendly"
Cons: "Lost my luggage"

Cons: "Aer Lingus webpage is terrible. Kayak’s is excellent, but I tried to change seats, it would not let me."

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

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

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

Cons: "Only one round of drinks served?"

Cons: "Could have been on time - 40 minutes late"

Cons: "Baggage delayed on arrival"

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

Pros: "Crew very friendly. Decent leg room in economy"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "no communication and a few apologies6"

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

Cons: "Could you refund me 50.00 as your price included bag price but when directed to book I had to add on bags for a further 50.00 and because of this they wouldn’t let me get on an earlier flight on my return sueevans999@hotmail.com or 07799411994 for response"

Pros: "The customer agents were helpful and just great"
Cons: "That out of 4 agents and the manager one simple agent wasn’t as nice"

Pros: "The staff was nice"
Cons: "You've got to pay for a can of ginger ale now? When did British Airways become a budget airline? What a joke. The plain is an old outfitting with flip down screens and whatnot. It's not like we need these things for shorter fights, but why would anyone pay more to fly a nicer airline if you're treated like you're on Ryan Air?"

Pros: "Gate agents good. Same with cabin crew"
Cons: "No AC charging. Legroom in business was tight"

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

Pros: "I appreciated the brand new seats on the aircraft which were quite comfortable, and the friendly crew who actually were nice enough to have a conversation with. Enjoyed the Marks and Spencer’s food too."
Cons: "The boarding at Dublin airport was not great, masses of crowds from every displaced flight due to snow (not all British Airways, many other airlines adding to the crowd). Was not awful but not fun."

Pros: "Great service as always"

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

Pros: "The flight attendants were great, helpful and polite. The food was delicious and there was planty leg room. A great airline to fly with and I'd highly recommend them."
Cons: "Nothing, all was great."

Pros: "Great staff, ultra professional"

Pros: "Finally getting to my destination 3 hours late."
Cons: "Issues with check-in, flight delayed multiple times, gate changes multiple times, non communication from attendants."

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!"

Cons: "The change of seats with the motove of keeping balance on the plane"

Cons: "I am 6'3" and I cannot find sufficient leg room. The answer is paying additional for seats with extra leg room, is no answer at all. The answer is quit jamming more seats in to a ever shrinking cabin."

Pros: "Nothing. British Airways refused to help us"
Cons: "Took over two hours on the phone to try and get rebooked. Missed the last flight out of the night due to incompetence. British Airways desk check in staff was so rude, wouldn't even talk to us. Thank goodness for the helpful Air Canada grind crew in Toronto."

Pros: "This was a BA codeshare but operated by AerLingus,supposedly a 4* airline."
Cons: "So called 4*"

Pros: "On-time arrival"
Cons: "Seating was very packed"

Pros: "All staff were very helpful and polite"
Cons: "This flight was delayed. When it came to boarding my husband who needs special assistance was first taken to board first but then had to be brought back as refuelling was not done and was then last on board. When we arrived at Heathrow his special assistance was not there and we had to wait for about 10/15 minutes. It is stressful traveling with someone who needs help and even worse when there are delays. We were advised that we could leave the aircraft which we did but we were left waiting in an area without any toilets which is a problem for him"

Pros: "Pleasant helpful staff, comfortable, clean seat, good food."
Cons: "Having to pay TWICE for extra item of luggage!! Some delay with boarding"

Pros: "Luggage delayed."

Cons: "Both legs were late. Outgoing was significantly late. Surprise charge of 75 euros to check a bag. Almost as much as a seat."

Cons: "We were loaded onto a shuttle bus and then stood there (some sat, I could only stand...) for 10+ minutes until the last passenger arrived. Not sure what the airline could do differently there unless it's run a "late person shuttle," and from other passengers' remarks, this was unusual for this transfer."

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Clean."
Cons: "No complimentary drink or snack, how come?"

Pros: "Short flight but thought there would be beverage service????"

Cons: "Rude at check in. Late taking off."

Pros: "What a different experience in relation to last week!"

Cons: "No direct communication. Really bad"

Pros: "Great meals, entertainment options, and service. Perfect landing of the 747 as well."
Cons: "Not the fault of British Airways, but Denver International Airport has a cumbersome and lengthy process for the re-entry of U.S. Citizens. We stood in two different lines for over an hour to be screened for customs."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "1. BA said I couldn't get a seat before 24 hrs before. Then when I tried to get a seat assignment I was told (by email) to contact Aer Lingus. Aer Lingus said that I should have called before 24 hrs before, and that seats were now in control of the gate (this still 22 hrs before flight time). Total lack of coordination. 2. At check-in I was first told that my bag was too big for carry-on, although BA had accepted it. I shrunk it down. Then I was told it weighed too much at 15 kg. When I asked why BA accepted the weight I was told BA's weight limit was different. 3. Net net, if BA is "arranging" the flight through a code-share it should have responsibility for insuring I am treated like a BA customer. Aer Lingus' customer treatment leads much to be desired."

Pros: "swift boarding allowed for an earlier departure and arrival 30min ahead of scheduled time"
Cons: "I waited 30min at the priority check in queue while being first in line this whole time. There was only one counter open for normal check in and one for priority when I arrived and after 20min waiting, the priority counter closed completely and there was just one counter open remaining, with just 10-15min before the check in closed. We had to wait another 10min to be able to check in our luggage! On arrival, luggage took 45min to just start delivering, completely wiping out the 30min arrival ahead of schedule."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The whole trip."

Cons: "This was a connecting flight for us and was delayed causing us to miss our flight home from London to Los Angeles. There were no flights back to Los Angeles until the following morning (18 hours later). We had to stay in a hotel near the airport in the meantime. My boyfriend and I were forced to miss work an additional day causing stress and inconvenience to our lives."

Pros: "Staff was cheerful"
