Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was great!"

Cons: "More leg room would have been nice..."
Cons: "3 1/2 hr delay"
Cons: "Lost my bags"
Pros: "The plane arrived in Atlanta ahead of time and thus we were able to start boarding earlier than usual. The gate agent kept the process in order and moved the boarding process along nicely. The pilots also got us to Baton Rouge 28 minutes ahead of schedule which was appreciated. Nice flight."

Pros: "Crew was extremly helpful, friendly and happy."
Cons: "Somehow they didn’t serve snacks and drinks, I’ve been being thirsty and hungry, at the last 30mns I felt like I wanna throw up. We landed around 30mns ago and now no gates ready for us to get out of here. Still waiting inside the plane."
Pros: "Fast boarding, friendly crew, and comfy seats"
Cons: "It was pretty bumpy and a few times we changed altitude very quickly"
Pros: "Nice plane and super nice crew."
Pros: "We eventually got there"
Cons: "In Cleveland, the doors remained opened for about 30 minutes after they were supposed to close, and 6-7 people boarded. We then arrived in ATL quite a bit after we were scheduled to land."
Cons: "Connection time was very short and arrival and departure gates were very far apart. The gate attendant at the arrival gate wasn’t very helpful or sympathetic."
Pros: "chwcking in was very easy."
Cons: "No in board beverages. On flight from RDU to PHL beverages were served."
Pros: "Boarding was quick Flight experience was good"
Cons: "Leg space was less Take off got delayed"
Pros: "Friendliness of attendants. Quality/quantity of snacks."
Cons: "Hip room/leg room."
Pros: "Flight was on time, flight crew was great"
Cons: "Seats weren't very comfortable and the iPod chargers were broke in 2 of our 3 seat row"
Pros: "Comfort Plus seating was good for the long flight, lots of choices for entertainment."
Cons: "Some crew members were rather cold in their manner, either disinterested or grumpy. Electric outlet didn't work. On screen entertainment touch screen was very difficult to use (unresponsive to touch)."
Pros: "Flew into bad weather event with thunderstorms, lightning and tornadoes. The flight was relatively turbulence free, flt had only one attendant in the cabin however she was able to serve beverages and snacks asks made sure everyone was comfortable. Can't thank Delta enough for the professionalism of their crew, great service and communication, and for getting us home safely. Thank you!"
Cons: "Made us pink tag carry on bags on flight deck. Had to retrieve bag from baggage claim after flight. My bag landed on the belt completely open, clothes and laptop hanging out bag onto belt, bag was damaged, zipper broken with holes in the fabric, bag was soaking wet! No one at airport able to assist with a damaged bag claim. Very disappointed in the Baton Rouge airport and lack of available staff to handle baggage issue."
Pros: "The flight was delayed by 50 minutes and then they underestimated the time to de-ice."
Cons: "The lines were so long in Palm Springs that myself and about 8 other people missed the flight. I arrived 1.5 hours before my boarding time."
Pros: "crew was professional and seats werre comfortable. flight departed late but arrived on time."
Cons: "nothing to say."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and it set off a slew of connection problems."
Pros: "Cabin crew and captain were great."
Cons: "Don't like how you don't get your seat assignment until you get to the gate. I was given the window seat in the very last row for a 6 hour flight, quite uncomfortable. I could've booked another airline for a similar price and picked the seat i wanted at booking. They ran out of food choices by the time they got to the last row, so we were given whatever was left. Delayed because one of the bathroom doors wasn't working, 30 min later still wasn't fixed and ultimately they decided to go without it."
Pros: "nice people"
Cons: "need more free food and drinks"
Cons: "Older plane and seemingly frustrated crew. They had very little patience."
Pros: "I loved the way that the flight attendants were able to sit my boyfriend and I together on our flights even though our seats weren't planned to be near each other. The available entertainment games, movies and tv shows were awesome to have!"
Cons: "I paid extra to sit comfortably only to have the seat adjoining my occupied by someone who expanded over onto my seat! Leaving me barely any room to sit comfortably."
Pros: "Very nice flight and attentive staff. Enjoyed the view of NYC as we flew up the East River, then looped over Nassau County to approach LGA."
Cons: "The male flight attendant who handed out the complimentary drinks and snacks acted a bit strangely. I was very thirsty, and I asked him if I could keep the rest of the can of soda. He neither said yes nor no, but rather completely ignored what I said and just poured my drink and moved on. I was a mildly annoyed, but figured maybe it was policy and he was shy and didn't want to debate the matter. When he took care of the older couple behind us, however, things got really strange. He asked them whether they wanted pretzels or peanuts, but they misheard him and asked for a ginger ale. I happened to know that he did have ginger ale, since my wife had just gotten one, but rather than just pouring the old folks a drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" They misheard again and asked him whether he had a diet ginger ale. Again, rather than just pour them the drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" This went round and round a few more times -- like a poorly designed computer UI that refuses to accept anything except the correct input -- before the old couple finally figured out the disconnect and picked their snacks before their drinks. Very weird."
Cons: "The boarding took a long time then when they called for the zone 3 they told us to hurry up. The steward was doing everything by hand motion. You couldn't hear what he was saying. The plane was extremely noisy and we asked what the noise was none of the crew answered. This is not the normal service that I am used to from Delta."
Pros: "Great help from gate agent when a delay in connecting flight would have missed the last flight. Agent put a great new agent it together better than the original."
Cons: "Delta is the best"
Cons: "The flight attendants were unfriendly and borderline rude. I felt like when I asked for anything or was just up stretching my legs that I was bothering them. There was also quite bit of turbulence in the first two hours- I have traveled a lot and I felt like it took the pilots too long to find a smoother altitude."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Seats too close. Food lacks salads. Fruit salad tasteless--fruit not ripe--looks good, but no taste."
Pros: "Get a day in NYC"
Cons: "Two daytime flights booked so can't get to Bangor until the 9:00 pm flight tonight. Aitline only coveted one night at the hotel. Had to buy a second night so we don't have to carry our bags around all day."
Pros: "Individual screens and earbuds for sale."
Pros: "I appreciated the helpfulness of the crew."
Cons: "On the flight to Kansas City we had movie screens which spoiled me and made me think we would have them on the way back to Atlanta."
Pros: "Entertainment was great. Many options"
Cons: "When we arrived for check in we were told we did not have seats assigned, even though I had picked seats previously. At the gate we were told the flight was very full so we would not be able to sit together."
Pros: "On time departure, clean plane, competent and professional flight attendants, pilot announcements were clear and relevant"
Cons: "Check in took forever. Delta reservations made some type of mistake when they cancelled our flight to CUN and I needed to rebook the flight. It took the CUN counter agent about 30 minutes to correct their mistake. Then, as we boarded our flight, the bar code reader at the gate indicated another error that the gate agent took about 10 minutes to correct. CUN Delta staff was great and we appreciated the efforts they made to direct us around the airport."
Pros: "I had paid for the Sky level as we were a party of long legged people. Out of the 4 flights we had taken, the best flight was the one from Hi to Atl. The seats, and leg space, was roomy. The food was good. The crew was just okay. They weren't particularly nice but rather abrupt. There were two mates that seems a bit confused. However, the plane was worth it."
Pros: "Media options were ok."
Cons: "I received a frozen beer and no napkin. Beer began to overflow, and I sat there for about 10 minutes before another flight attendant walked by. Her attitude was less than desirable upon seeing the situation. Also my luggage never arrived in Singapore. Shanghai didn't have any notification, so I assume it was lost on the Delta end. Overall I am very disappointed and will be seeking a non-delta affiliate for my next trip."
Pros: "I liked getting home"
Cons: "Seat 27F is not a seat. The online system messed up!"
Pros: "Drinks were passed out twice while everyone was waiting due to flight delay. There was one flight attendant that was awesome. I had asked for coffee due to migraine. I was stuck in the last row, back of the plane & had seen other people with coffee. The flight attendant told me no, I would have to wait for 3 more hours for coffee at breakfast. A smiling face showed up within minutes & asked if I wanted coffee. She told me that when she hears someone else say "no" that she thinks it should always be "yes". She was the African American flight attendant (wish I would have got her name). She brought me coffee, offered tylenol & checked in on me again later."
Cons: "Food wasn't very good. Most of the service was fair at best, crew, no smiles, looked irritable. Our flight had been delayed about 4-5 hrs so passengers & staff grumpy. Poor selections on the movies. No charging stations in the seat. This plane was very noisy so I was really glad to have noise cancelling headphones. Very expensive to select seats as it was bought through a non-Delta site to get the desired connections."
Pros: "Great, patient crew!"
Pros: "Respect and politeness of the staff"
Cons: "Wi-Fi is not available on all flights also is easy to download the fllynet"
Cons: "My flt from DEN was delayed so I missed my connection - it didn't happen."

Cons: "The movie selection was limited and dated"
Pros: "Food was good (not pasta!), crew was very accommodating"
Cons: "Flight was delayed (again!). There was no desert with the food."
Pros: "The leg space was great for economy class. There was room for bags in the overhead. The movie selection was great."
Cons: "Boarding via bus.... first bus had kids, business class, and people who needed help. Second bus had everyone else. Both waited on the tarmac for the plane to be ready and both busses opened the doors at the same time. The families were swamped while trying to load the plane with kids in tow."
Pros: "Flight crew very attentive"
Pros: "Short flight but staff very attentive, food good."
Cons: "My seat was assigned to someone else and I paid for an upgrade but got a center seat with less legroom than what I paid for"
Pros: "The crew were very considerate. Also they have the best baby beds we have seen so far"
Cons: "The entertainment system was glitchy."
Pros: "Lounge was very clean"
Cons: "In a 10 hours flight Frankfurt to Atlanta only one main meal. Service was rushed job. My seat wasn’t working and Tv remote didn’t work."
Pros: "Exit row, very nice to have a little extra legroom. Baggage checked through from LAX to Dresden was sooo convenient."
Cons: "Bus from terminal to aircraft is not optimal."
Pros: "It's not only pilot/auto-pilot or only weather dependent for sure, but ride was extremely smooth. landing was fantastic. Entertainment options were great. Crew was friendly and attentive. Sucks for LH, but I had to one sitting next to me on the 8-hour flight! no crying babies, no snoring. yiey!"
Cons: "Maybe US is ahead, but my experience with 2 terminals at Hanover and Frankfurt was that information exchange isn't good. Gate number was available at the last hour or so, which then got changed. Not just this flight. many flocks of people were running around to find their new gate... also as I mentioned climbing several stories of stairs with carry-on isn't fun! Not on this flight, but on my initial departure from US to FRA, monitors said go to Gate B. I got in line for Gate B as there was some security check, then we were told there was another B?!@ We had to go down and take the bus for that...written.. No where!"
Pros: "Same nice crew"
Cons: "My luggage destroied"
Cons: "The food is not very good"
Cons: "4 hours delay"
Pros: "Randomly gave me better seats!"
Pros: "loved the candy given to us when we left the plane"
Cons: "Too many announcements"
Pros: "Good service on plane seats weren't bad."
Cons: "Entertainment system kept not working. Terrible baggage wait in Orlando. Over 30 minutes after I cleared customs Flight was late over 30 minutes"
Pros: "It was an Airbus, you cant screw up i hope. Ok leg room tons of open seats"
Cons: "Lots of staff on board, nothing but nuts and water."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "when seats recline in economy you can barely get in and out of a seat"
Pros: "Entertainment options were good"
Cons: "Being in last row they ran out of food options for us and attendants were not very polite. Seat was less comfortable due to the tight spacing of the last row and having passengers "hangout" directly behind you throughout the flight."
Pros: "For a direct flight between the N.E. and Frankfurt, it is one of the best."
Cons: "As with all flights, I wish there was more room. It is tough for a 6 ft 2 inch person. I can't imagine being taller or heavier than I am and what it must be like."
Pros: "They did it again, lost my bag for the emth time. But this time its seems to be more complicated than previous times this has happened. Just hope i’ll get my bag back eventually."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment options, beverage service, and leg room."
Cons: "I paid to reserve an upgraded seat. I specifically asked for a window seat and even have a confirmation email saying that I got a window seat (27 A). However, when I checked in, I was assigned a middle seat and the representatives at the ticket counter tried to tell me that was my preference. They tilde me to take it up with customer relations. If I pay $100 for a particular seat, I should get that seat!"
Pros: "They were waiting for us even we were running late from connecting flight, everybody was super nice"
Pros: "Love Lufthansa"
Pros: "The boarding process is very efficient."
Cons: "Lufthansa’s people are mostly good. But there are some obvious opportunities for people to be more friendly. Also, LH like many others continues to serve cold rolls and cold butter on international flights. KLM warms the rolls! It’s the one small touch that would make Lufthansa’s meal service so much nicer."
Pros: "The crew members were friendly."
Cons: "Fro dinner the quanty was very little. I weigh barely over 100 lbs, and l don't eat very much. Still even for me there wasn't enough, so I got hungry after a few hours. For breakfast the egg was rubbery. It was disappointing."
Pros: "All round excellent services. Food is good, but I wish but I wished More chooses or selection."
Cons: "I didn't got the seats i asked for in the check in."
Pros: "Clarity of informations"
Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "Afterall I did get rice iso pasta."
Cons: "Cold. My chair was bumped because us was just a little bit broader in the gangway than the other chairs. (54c) There is no possebility fot ordering foid for me: diet is without grains at all and without sugar at all."
Cons: "I had to endure 10 hours sitting next to an obese passenger, who was to big to fit into his seat and had to rest his shoulder and elbow over my seat. The crew couldn't do much and so I had to shift myself sideways for the entire journey in order to make space for this obese passenger to rest his arm into and over my seat."
Cons: "They had overbooked the flight and asked to reroute me. I asked if I would still be able to get to my destination at the same time and to make sure I would have a window seat. Everything from the moment I said yes was a terrible. They rebooked me twice on two different routes when I was in the air. Said a steward would meet me (never happened) instead I was running to catch flights on different airlines in two different airports. The entire situation was disgusting. The running was with all of my luggage. Because of the rebooking I was in the last row of 75 rows on a plane with an additional connection. Every flight had delays creating more chaos for the next flight. The only helpful airline in the bunch was Delta."
Pros: "Crew friendly, good food"
Cons: "Cramped seating, can't select seat until checkin without paying (only airline we were unable to select seat)"
Cons: "The return leg has been nothing but a disaster, in every way possible, specifically my time and financially. At no point in the booking process, when I paid over $800 for the trip, was I told that I needed a specific travel visa (Canadian ETA) to fly back into Toronto for my return flight. Subsequently when I checked in for my flight yesterday morning in Manchester, England, I did not have the required travel documents and had to be rerouted onto a flight into the U.S. at a cost to me of $350. The rerouted flight got me to Washington Dulles airport, where I then had to purchase a second flight to get me home to Cleveland, Ohio, at an additional/extra cost of $450. MY CAR IS PARKED AT TORONTO PEARSON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT!!! I am having to now rent a car and drive there tomorrow (Friday) to collect my car, at another additional cost of $100 plus a 10-hour round trip. Due to the lack of information and communication on your companies behalf, I am down close to a $1,000 and will lose 2-days in work as of the additional days I am having to travel back to Toronto to collect my vehicle. I would appreciate contact from your organization to find the avenue I need to take for compensation of my time and finances. Regards"
Pros: "Lufthansa rocks!"
Pros: "On time. Smoothe boarding. No poor food. In general a pleasantly uneventful flight."
Cons: "I checked my one small siitcase which easily fitsin the overhead binas the ticket agent told me it was a full flight and thus required. My hand luggage was my handbag. The flight was actually 2/3 full with plenty of empty seats and empty bin space. Most passengers had 2pieves of hand luggage. So I had to wait for luggage at the end of the flight when I could have easily stored it overhead."
Pros: "Almost everything, the flight crew was friendly and timely, the movie selection was great, the flight left on time and arrived early."
Cons: "The temperature near my seat was very uncomfortable, to the point where I was sweating for most of my ride. The passenger next to me, also complained to me as well."
Pros: "The flight was on time. The boarding went smoothly."
Cons: "Armrest was broken on 1st flight making it difficult to get the tray table out."
Pros: "great food options good comfort"
Pros: "SAS and BA can do better"
Pros: "Excellent Flight"
Pros: "Still loads of leg room in economy which is great for a tall person like myself."
Cons: "The food, dinner and breakfast from Johannesburg to Frankfurt was not very nice and not the usual good standard."
Cons: "The seat in front of mine was reclined in the already cramped space provided, twice as far back as any other seat I could see. Please look into the recline on that seat for future passengers. The crew hit my seat, repeatedly with their carts and did not remember to offer drinks to us as they pushed it by. The airlines should consider removing that seat as an option to passengers if there is not ample room for the flight crew to maneuver around it. It made for an unpleasant experience overall."
Pros: "Everything was top notch… Wi-Fi, food, entertainment, comfort"
Cons: "Staff was extremely sassy and unhelpful when I had been traveling for 40 hours."
Pros: "Very prompt, good food. We encourage trip very much!"
Pros: "Overall a nice and good flight"
Cons: "Just a detail, my “head holder” (not too sure how it is called) would not hold in position. Also, staff was a bit slow to come after being called, I had to go and ask for water by myself at some point since no one was coming after 15minites of waiting..."
Cons: "Bigger seats the new ones are way to narrow"
Cons: "Wifi on klm"
Pros: "The socks offered in business were comfortable and nice looking. The red wine was good."
Cons: "The food was just average and the seat not too comfortable"
Pros: "Usual faultless KLM experience"
Pros: "Everything works and quick to get to destination."
Pros: "The crew were excellent and seats were comfy."
Cons: "Headphones for the entertainment centre.could have been better. Sound quality not great."
Pros: "Great plane and staff"
Pros: "Seat was comfy and spacious for economy class"
Cons: "Vegetarian meal was okay but could be more enjoyable if served with bread at start of meal."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and food was very good"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on the flight from Vancouver to Amsterdam and this on top of a two hour delay in taking off which led us to have to literally run to our gate in Amsterdam to make the connection to Mumbai"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "KLM lost one piece of my luggage"
Cons: "They left my bag off the plane. Ridiculous."
Pros: "Good for both."
Cons: "Bigger seats."
Pros: "Crew was great and professional."
Cons: "Entertainment controls were outdated and confusing to operate. There were no charging ports."
Pros: "It was all fine"
Cons: "Really was unsure of why I had to purchase a ticket as I was able to pick my own on the way to Billund"
Cons: "Long haul flight made pleasant by KLM"
Pros: "Friendly staff, great service on board. Way better value and service compared to the tacky Irish competition flying the route. Delta all the way"
Pros: "The crew!!"
Cons: "Turn the lights on early making it hard to sleep"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The food."
Pros: "Staff very pleasant"
Cons: "Evening snack was not the greatest breakfast was pretty food"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "punctuality of boarding and flight time"
Cons: "attitude of crew in business class: no sense of true hospitality"
Cons: "Food had only vegetarian choices. No charging place and ambiance was noisy"
Pros: "I slept pretty much the whole time"
Pros: "Interior of the plane was clean. Smooth landing."
Cons: "Pilot did not avoid turbulence"
Cons: "infotainment was down. Lost my luggage the flight was delayed"
Pros: "Smooth boarding, clean seats/plane, nice small aircraft (2 rows x 2 seats each), surprisingly spacious (more legroom than expected - and I’m 6’2”)."
Cons: "About 1h30min delay without an explanation. All other planes in the terminal seemed to take off on time without a problem, without exception (aside from this flight, of course)."
Pros: "I enjoyed the attention to detail and comfort. Helped to make the flight easier to handle."
Pros: "Nice flight, nice crew, and a nice experience."
Pros: "On both of my flights to New York City, I was amazed at how friendly and helpful the flight attendants were to the passengers. On my short flight from Basel to Amsterdam, a young French speaking girl was concerned about how to manage getting to her next gate. The flight attendants talked to her and arranged for someone to take her there. On my longer flight from Amsterdam to New York City, there was a customer who was in distress about missing a previous flight and not making it to her connecting flight in New York. One of the flight attendants reassured her until she stopped crying and calmed down. That same flight attendant was always so positive and cheerful in all she did. The rest of the crew was top notch. This was my best experience flying in such a long time. Well done, KLM crews of flights 1984 and 0645 on July 10!"
Pros: "Flight crew was fine. Food was good."
Cons: "Checking in was extensive for unaccompanied minor. But gate crew was very unnattentuve and though we showed up as first in line, they did not focus, and kept saying to wait. Ultimately our son was last person on the plane."
Pros: "The time keeping was very good. We left on time and arrived early on both occasion. Good organisation. Excellent service."
Pros: "Good flights. Good prices."
Pros: "The staff were professional and friendly The food was very good and plentiful The inflight entertainment has lots of choices The bathrooms remained clean All in stark contrast with BA with who I did the same flight 2 weeks ago and all the above points were very poor"
Pros: "Helpful and smiling cabin crew."
Pros: "Clean airplane, friendly crew, no rush, nice snacks for a short one hour flight. Just generally a positive experience."
Pros: "Pretty basic one hour flight so there's not much to complain about or praise about. I got some sleep which was good."
Cons: "The crew had their general Dutch aloofness on form. Chatted to one of the stewardesses in Dutch up until she saw I had a British passport then she decided she could only speak English to me."
Pros: "Good multi media access and content"
Pros: "Comfort economy well worth the extra."
Pros: "The sandwiches were simple yet just the right touch, on all four flights."
Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."
Pros: "Arriving more or less on time"
Cons: "Crew is awful. Disrespectful desinterested in customers find themselves very important. No service mentality whatsoever. No respectful airline would hire such arrogant self centered personalities in a service role"
Pros: "quick boarding, responsive Airline stewardess, very polite."
Cons: "temperature control was not good, service was fine, seats were not comfortable. plane need to be cleaner."
Pros: "It was a short flight so it was O.K."
Cons: "Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger."
Pros: "Flight crew on flight from Amsterdam to Cape Town were probably the most friendly and enthusiastic I've experienced and no, they were not all young. The plane was spotless throughout the flight. They were always coming around with water and juice and they genuinely seemed to care about all the passengers. The Flight back crew were just the opposite. More like the old lazy farts you get on the American carriers or BA or QF long haul. Whoo have been there for the long haul and should have stopped ages ago."
Cons: "The Entertainment images on the screens promoted Beauty and the Beast, Batman Lego movie but neither were on the system! Food quality was rubbish"
Pros: "We love the flight all the way"
Pros: "KLM food and service are great"
Cons: "Very slow service. I wanted to by several goods from duty free. But crew served only first 20 rows of aircraft."
Pros: "It was very comfortable"
Cons: "The crew was great"
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"
Pros: "Boarded and left on time"
Cons: "Food was awful. It was so hot I was fanning myself. I had a 11 hour flight and than a 10 hour flight after both British airways, and the same exact food. So I just went hungry. I smelled something amazing so thought I would get a good hot meal as my last meal since I had not had anything in 9hours, but nope, just got a measly cold sandwich. I won’t book British airlines again for international travel, I’ll stick to emirates."
Cons: "Hardly saw a steward in business class the whole flight. Must be part of BA’s cost saving initiatives, but means you don’t get food on time, offered drinks or even a menu"
Cons: "Distance between seats on the low side i.e. not much leg room. TV screen again on the small size in comparison with other airlines. Ear phones poor build quality and sound. Plastic cutlery. Small meal trays. No hand wipes with meals. In comparison with other airlines BA is only an average carrier."
Cons: "Kayak.com overwrote the passenger name with an incorrect name. Neither Kayak.com or lastminute.com could correct this which resulted in me losing approx. £600 and taking the issue to the small claims court."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Not applicable."
Cons: "Only one round of drinks served?"
Cons: "The people handling the boarding were rude and inefficient. Not a way to staty an 11 hour flight."
Pros: "Crew fantastic. Seats very cramped so hard when travelling alone with people crammed next to you. I am very short and still found seat cramped. Blankets skimpy. Heathrow to San Fran. Johannesburg to Heathrow was more comfortable."
Cons: "Most things I give a high rate on BA but travelling economy these days is very cramped especially as I did two long international legs with short four hour break between."
Cons: "Lost my luggage"
Pros: "The flight was great and was on time. Down side, no entertainment at all."
Cons: "Lack of entertainment"
Pros: "More legroom than other aircraft, plentiful IFE (in-flight entertainment), and a USB charging point in the seat back near the video screen. Decent food and wine, great crew."
Cons: "We departed the terminal for takeoff but a passenger had a medical emergency requiring a return to the gate and off-loading along with finding the passenger’s baggage down below. Not the airline’s fault, of course, but maybe passengers should carefully consider their health before embarking on an 11.5 hour flight from one continent to another."
Cons: "The plane was warm which became uncomfortable for the second half of the 9 hour flight. Also they had some issues with double booked seats and having to move people around which delayed takeoff. The staff did a good job of making the best of a bad situation thoug."
Pros: "On time, attentive staff"
Pros: "Flight arrived 30 minutes early."
Cons: "I had to get off the plane."
Pros: "Boarding, crew and meals were good. Bedding was very nice."
Cons: "Cabin was a tad warm and biz seat was broken. Flight crew was sympathetic."
Pros: "Quick boarding, good crew."
Cons: "Greasy food."
Pros: "The Crew were great"
Cons: "Boarding could have been more efficient"
Pros: "I loved the new modern plane. It was a bit more comfortable and conveniently designed. Less like a cattle truck and more like a luxury bus."
Cons: "My checked bag didn't make it from Barcelona to my destination (new orleans)."
Pros: "There was no flight"
Cons: "The flight did not take off. What little information we were goven was inaccurate. We called and were rebooked on another flight without being told it was overbooked and our tickets were standby . Dozens of other passengers had the same experience"
Pros: "Crew great, Food great!"
Cons: "Flight has now been cancelled twice. Communication by BA has been lacking. Flight now scheduled to leave 48 hours later than scheduled.See above"
Pros: "The crew, all the way around were very attentive & courteous, food was great!"
Cons: "I was completely satisfied with this airline, would use again!"
Cons: "In Barcelona, they do not use Catalan in the announcements (American Airlines do)."
Pros: "Excellent flight. Staff very helpful and professional."
Pros: "Lots of delays due to technical problems with the plan. Had to be moved onto another plane. More than 3 hour delay."
Cons: "When trying to check in online the day prior, the British Airways system was unable to load my reservation. Upon arrival to the airport, the rather unambitious fellow at the check-in desk refused to look up my reservation and instead insisted that my flight was in fact through American Airlines. After waiting in yet another queue, I was sent back to British Airways, where it was confirmed that Iwas booked on the flight, but that it would be to late to check my suitcase. I am still at my city of origin in London as I write this review."
Pros: "Hostess was very nice, helpful and friendly. entertainment was ok and pilot was very informative on delays and info. I think the comic relief video is a keeper. People tend to watch just to see the characters and reactions"
Cons: "Seats were to close together, really squashed, no space for 2 arms on the arm rests and leg room is rubbish. Food is wasn't bad.. could do with more on the trays, seems there have been some budget cuts. Continental breakfast option would be really nice."
Pros: "The meals were reasonably nice and the flight was on time"
Cons: "The entertainment screens were old and not clear and not easy to use. The crew was not efficient, not very friendly and not very accommodating. They offered minimal service, contrary to another crew on the A380 flight with BA going from LHR to JNB. Between flights, I guess I saw the better and the worse of BA."
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze, the A380 is so much quieter than the usual 747 and really clean. We arrived on time."
Cons: "As a silver Avios member I've gotten used to the cabin crew calling me on my name when they come and talk to me. This time they spoke as little as possible and it was all incognito. They seemed to be more interested in various Facebook updates than working business class."
Pros: "Good legroom and lots of space on the plane"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Good food, good service, everything on time."
Cons: "I paid for an exit seat and didn't get one and then I had the only seat with no entertainment for 11 hours overnight and no Joyce to move"
Pros: "The flight to NO was good. Service was good as well."
Cons: "The seating was much more cramped than the flight to Ireland. Very tight quarters for a 10 hour flight. Other than that, it was good. We arrived safely and that's the best feeling ever!"
Pros: "London to New Orleans direct is an excellent route."
Cons: "Food was poor."
Pros: "We boarded almost 1hr early, took off on time and landed just before scheduled."
Pros: "What a different experience in relation to last week!"
Cons: "No direct communication. Really bad"
Pros: "Great Crew, smooth operation. Efficient service."
Cons: "Boarded flight only to be unboarded at midnight: got to hotel 4am. Long delay in check in/appallingly disorganized. No communication from BA as to problem or when flight would go. Next day checked out of hotel and taken back to airport only to find flight not going as problem not fixed. Passengers taken back to hotel and checked in again! All this time, no official communication from BA. No attempt to reroute elderly passengers or those with small children. Very unimpressed"
Pros: "The flight attendants on this flight where the best I've ever had!"
Cons: "They did not do much to help accommodate us sitting together on the long flight. Poor food. Poor service."
Cons: "Seating configuration was ridiculous as flight attendants constantly leaning across me with trays and their arms nearly hitting my face. Seat & bed functions didn't work. Privacy screen was a joke!"
Pros: "I'm sure there was something but nothing comes to mind."
Cons: "Lack of assistance regarding my missing belongings. Incorrect information relating to landing card to be completed when arriving in London. Stretching over me to pass food etc to passenger sitting facing other direction, and literally millimetres from my face, without any politeness having to do it. Configuration gives no privacy as you look at the passenger next to you. Functions of chair did not work. Pillow was thinner Than a piece of paper. Crew showed no concern."
Cons: "I HAVE FLOWN OFTEN ON OTHER AIRLINES & IT WAS THE FIRST TIME TO FIND OUT THAT BRITISH AIRWAYS ONLY ALLOWED ONE FREE CHECKED BAG AND I HAD TO PAY $200 WHEN I ARRIVED AT THE AIRPORT, $100 FOR THE 2ND BAG & $100 BECAUSE IT EXCEEDED 51 LBS"
Cons: "Each rep we spoke to said they couldnt help us and to just open a support ticket online.. Kept telling us they dont have a customer service team who can help us and its only available online."
Cons: "breakfast was terrible. It was beans, mushrooms, and asparagus. It also came with 3 pieces of fruit. Coffee was also terrible. If you sitting in the middle seats there is no space. The man's arms sitting in the seat next to me were pretty much in my seat the whole time."
Cons: "Was not able to check in through to Cape Town, only JNB. When arrived in JNB, British Airways flight was not clearly identifiable from ticket (no flight number). Then the flight was delayed, and plane was old! Horrible experience"
"My flight was cancelled and I wasn’t even notified!!! Horrible service!"
Cons: "They claim to be cleaning these planes but I find that hard to believe when there is Gum on the window sill. We were also delayed quite a bit in the boarding process. Also I would imagine that during Covid-19 these companies would do a better job of not overbooking flights but all of my flights with American this past weekend were overbooked. Which delayed us even longer as they searched for volunteers to adjust their flights. In today's age of technology the idea that they are still overbooking planes makes no sense to me in the slightest. I will be walking, driving or taking a boat before I fly American Airlines again."
Cons: "Bumped from first class to coach."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "The salad was included two unmentioned items that were unwelcome: bleu cheese and pasta."
Cons: "Everything, especially an AA customer representative. Very rude, inconsiderate, and unprofessional."

Pros: "Attentive crew. Traveling with 2 seniors in their 80’s. Thank you."
Cons: "Nothing. Perfect."
Cons: "Nothing you could do, it was a maintenance issue."
Cons: "Paid for upgraded seat with complimentary drinks that I still got charged for."
Cons: "They lost and cant track my baggage. Very poor customer service."
Cons: "How does a ground crew not know a plane is coming in late. How is there no one here for baggage. It's a joke."
Cons: "inadequate ventilation"
Pros: "LOVED the spacious leg room on that aircraft!"
Cons: "The lady beside me and everyone else listened to her audio book."
Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "This new low life category where you cannot even pay to be treated like a human."
Pros: "Crew was great, and flight was relatively on time."
Cons: "Itinerary I received was for British Airways, with whom I have always had excellent experiences. However, I discovered at check-in I would actually be traveling on American Airlines with a different flight no. I had already provided my BA flight numbers to family. No explanation was give to me prior to flight that this would be the case. Food was terrible- even for Coach class - I don't always expect a gourmet meal, but BA was consistently good in the past, so I had positive expectations. My personal entertainment system did not work properly so I could not use it."
Pros: "Seats were nice, service came pretty quickly considering the size of the plane, boarding went reasonably quick"
Cons: "Started boarding and didn't announce another delay till we're on the aircraft, sitting in the gate for an hour and a half. My audio jack was broken and regardless, it will still trying to charge me for everything even though i was force to be squashed between two people who are also frustrated about sitting doing nothing."
Pros: "Attendants are always friendly; always a peaceful travel event"
Pros: "Travel time"

Pros: "The crew were wonderful! Everyone was polite and accommodating. The entertainment available was on point. The food was both tasty and offered often."
Cons: "The seat were ok. There was not enough legroom, but honestly no airline has enough unless its business of first class. The Wi-Fi availability was misleading, though it did not advertise that it was free."
Pros: "Great food, professional conduct"
Cons: "Couldn't control window tint after we left California"
Pros: "Mostly friendly staff and quick flight time."
Cons: "Only half the plane got snacks and drinks. Additionally, I was forced to check my bag, which is a pretty big deal because I was connecting to an international flight and was unable to retrieve my prescriptions in all the rush to check my bag."
Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "American advertised free TV and movies streamed to your device via a card placed in the seatback pocket and in the flight attendant's announcement. Although the card stated, "This Flight. Free Entertainment..." I was informed that there was, in fact, no such feature."
Pros: "Cabin was clean. Flight attendants were courteous."
Cons: "Their snacks were merely a cookie which was okay, but not what I would have wanted."
Cons: "Middle seat and one of the last ones on. Enough said"
Cons: "Short flight, so food offering was little pretzels."
Pros: "I made it safely to my destinations and in a timely manner."
Cons: "The lack of space to breathe. Being herded like cattle to our seats. The fact that in flight service BARELY made it to the back of the plane before we landed."
Pros: "The entertainment system. It was awesome. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "Nothing notable."
Cons: "Frankfurt was rebooked by AA to PHL connecting to LGA. LGA leg was cancelled. They wanted us to take a flight to LGA the next day. We got ticketed to DCA connecting to LGA same day. Finally arrived home after 18 hours of travel. NOT HAPPY. We don't blame AA for weather cancellation but it was not an easy trip home."
Pros: "Pilot was very communicative, which was great but plane was 1 hour late and we had a mechanical problem while taxing, pilots fixed it while still on the ground. Not their fault those planes are 35 years old, come on!"
Cons: "Stop flying MD80's, please! 35 year old planes!"
Pros: "Didn't realize till half way through the trip, but it was possible to view free movies via my iPad mini on Gogo Entertainment app. That entertained my rest of the trip!"
Cons: "No outlet found around seats, so I couldn't recharge my devices during the trip."
Pros: "We landed 30 minutes early."
Pros: "The flight assistants were nice"
Cons: "The entire flight from Miami to New Orleans, the ac felt like the heater was on. I was sweating and felt nasty."
Pros: "Easy to navigate site. Was given Pre-check on one leg, which was nice."
Cons: "Had to purchase a seat on one leg, resulting in an extra $12. That was a surprise."
Pros: "Captain and crew were capable and friendly."
Pros: "I loved the price more than anything else. All the staff were friendly and professional. Every flight was on time with no delays."
