Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "I would have appreciated that with ALL required paperwork, my stay at check in point would have lasted a little less than two hours I spent standing and waiting for a feedback."
Cons: "Updating clients and offering a seat if it’s a long wait could have improved the situation. It is on reception that the business gets its impression. Thanks."
Pros: "The check-in crew in Chicago was very nice and efficient. The flight crew on-board were not friendly, they were very curt and rushed, and did not go out of their way to be helpful."
Cons: "Friendlier staff during the flight. Better food for breakfast. The connection port for my headphones did not work...I would not have been able to watch movies if I hadn't brought my own single connection head phones."
Pros: "Yes, Crew was amazing and timing was perfect."
Cons: "Excellent performance"
Pros: "Everything great!"
Pros: "Crew was great. They made up for mistakes in a positive and amenable way."
Cons: "Flight was late. There was no communication about it. The flight from Joburg to Doha was late, therefore I missed my connection. The delay was not officially communicated to any of the passengers — no announcements made, no representatives to talk to at the gate — until well past the time that we should have been in the air. It was distressing."
Pros: "Response is the same as above"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and professional"
Cons: "Food wasn't great"
Pros: "Crew is amazing"
Cons: "The Entertainment screen wasn’t working"

Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "I found my seat a bit uncomfortable for this leg of the jurney"
Pros: "The service of the cabin was great!"

Pros: "decent leg room. the staff was accommodating"
Cons: "the brea was har. some of the food was overheated thus making it hard to eat"

Pros: "Fantastic service, very friendly staff who are always happy to help"
Cons: "Should have internet free of charge in flight"
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "The change of my flight schedule for the entire journey was done without giving me any options (departure flights from origin and return). It would have caused me inconvenience if the change of time does not allow me to adjust my plans."
Pros: "Great flight. Everything was good. The only very small issue is hey offer WiFi but even if you pay the allocation of data make you feel like you living in the 1990. 10 meg free and 300 meg for a whole flight is a complete joke, especially for USD 30. They could manage protocols but give a reasonable service."
Pros: "Qatar is a reliable airline."
Cons: "No matter how many times I have traveled with Qatar (5 international flights in the last year); I still do not receive any benefits such a priority boarding or upgrades."
Pros: "The service from check-in till landing was on the ball and superb. They were friendly and eager to assist with everything. They have the latest movies and shows to watch on their in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "great crew and food."
Cons: "being charged excess baggage when one suitcase weigh under weight. Having to wait at the terminal for a hour and a half because of bad weather -- not the pilot's fault"
Pros: "The plane from Johannesburg to Doha was Fine but not as wonderful and comfortable As flight from Doha to Chicago"
Pros: "Liked everything."
Cons: "Nothing was wrong but excess bagage fee is high"
Cons: "I had a long trip and as a result I had lost my voice, and the crew had no patient at all. I feel like she just wanted to check the box instead of really making sure I got what I wish for food wise."
Cons: "They lost my bag and that’s disappointing considering I have my bank account details in that bag. Very disappointed by this"
Pros: "I was actually impressed with the entertainment selection :)"
Cons: "The economy seats are just unfortunately not a place you can get comfortable enough to sleep. On 14 hour flights one hopes to sleep."
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Hard cushioning and narrow seats on the 787"
Pros: "Good in-flight service"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "In general the crew was very nice."
Cons: "The dreamliner is a little tight in relation to the B777. The Kosher meals very all the same for breakfast lunch and snack"
Cons: "1. rude staff - i stood in Jburg at the counter for 13 minutes (i checked my clock) while 8 staff ladies spoke among themselves in a myriad of languages. FINALLY one lady asked if i had been helped! I said no and she was clearly less than thrilled to be the one to help with my question. i literally just wanted to ask if my seat assignment was a window, middle or aisle, but it was like i was the bane of her existence and i interrupted their social hour. On my outbound flight (ORD to DOH) I also watched three staff members be beyond rude to guest after guest at the check in counter regarding baggage when they came forward to "re check-in" which was a new requirement for most people. There was a lot of general confusion on behalf of the consumers and the staff was NOT the least bit patient or helpful in explaining what they needed from us or why this flight had different procedures than normal. I still don't know why they were so fussy about baggage and made everyone re check in at the gate in fact. And they didnt do it to my baggage so i have no idea why they were so rude to some and completely left others alone. (didn't seem to have to do with size, carrying of electronics, i don't know?) 2. the physical flight - you changed my original flight time to something that was REALLY close for my connection from DOH to CDG, so you instead bumped me to a later flight without consulting me. it would have caused me to miss a connection flight I booked separately through EasyJet from Pairs to my home airport BIQ. I had to figure that out on my own. RUSH through Doha to make my 35 min connection and barely was allowed to board my onward Paris flight by the Qatar gate staff which was only cutting it close as a result of YOUR changes! Yet i was treated like i was somehow "late" and wouldn't be able to board ??? Again incredibly rude staff. Subsequently you lost my luggage because the connection was too tight. i landed on Friday and it didn't catch up to me until Tuesday. Not one person has said sorry or offered any restitution. And this is honestly what upsets me the most. I doubt anyone even reads this. pathetic. I work for a travel club and since Monday (so in 4 days) I have actively reached out to 4 clients to cancel and re-booked their Qatar airways flight to another carrier to get them to Johannesburg. They will be doing the same safari experience I did, but I will NOT recommend and book my clients on Qatar after my experience."
Cons: "You canceled our flight in the last minute. we were starting our holidays and missed one day included the booking reservation. We didn't get any refund regarding this issue. On the other hand, i booked my special meal and never received it."
Cons: "the flight was canceled."
Pros: "The flight was on time, not full and the crew and the entertainment was excellent. Very happy with the experience of flying on Qatar Airways from Johannesburg to Miami."
Cons: "Everything was well, the food was good not great (even for airplane food) and the only other issue is it seemed like trash from our drinks and food services was picked up for quite a while or until we brought it to the flight attendants ourselves."
Cons: "The business class seats on this A330 are to tight when turned into a bed."
Pros: "landed safely"
Cons: "Had to claim bags at Doha and go through multiple security screenings to board connecting flight. At one point all the security was not functioning and we were packed up in lines. Barely had time to stop at the restroom before final security check where it was all so disorganized. After that check we were told that if we left we had to go through security again. Would have been nice to know that upfront. It was a madhouse going through that final security check and my husband's wallet was lost for a bit. No one really tried to help and we were told to move aside. Finally someone saw that it had fallen beside one of the counters. It was all horrible. Because of all this our 5 hour layover was a hassle with no time for food, etc. The whole airport experience was confusing and badly handled."
Pros: "Excellent in every way. Clearly a top tier airlines. I will choose Qatar Airlines at every opportunity."
Pros: "2 bag checks allowed and being giv n th option to check in an additional carry on at no charge."
Cons: "Boarding was hodge-podge. Seats are way too close together for a long haul...person's tray in front of me was in my face the entire trip and she didn't bother inclining throughout so had to eat my meals like a contortionist. Cramming more seats into a finite space seems to be what all airlines are doing these days. This of us whom are above average in height are forced to insure a more painful and uncomfortable flight as a result."
Cons: "Kayak/priceline re-booked my flight for my sister and I from SAA to BA, but failed to completely reissue us tickets. When we checked in for the flight, we had no ticket for the first leg of the flight, but we had tickets for the remaining flights. We immediately called to fix this problem, but due to slow customer service, we weren't issued tickets in time and the flight left without us. We missed all remaining connecting flights and were forced to buy New tickets. Now we have to work with kayak/priceline to get all my money back due to their error. We came back a day later than expected and missed going back to work."
Pros: "I enjoyed the staff"
Cons: "The screens were old school and I HS a hard time getting it to work Also the sleep mask I received had sticky stuff all over it when I opened the package."
Pros: "Excellent Cabin Crews, Flights on time"
Cons: "Food is mediocre at best, comfort on 787 is terrible."
Cons: "This was also a good flight it was just a bit more cramped than the Qatar Flight Los Angeles to Doha so I preferred that flight over the Doha to Singapore"
Cons: "Because of poor connection, arrived for flight 15 min. before departure. Gate agent wouldn't allow us to board and wouldn't help us rebook. Offered no help."
Pros: "Seat space. Stevice. Terminal."
Cons: "Attendant was rude and never really finished service, never remembered any requests and consistently skipped guests when providing food or drink service, cabin kept oscillating between either too hot or too cold."
Cons: "We took off in a terrible storm with lightning striking all around the plane. Very rough, lightning which scared the hell out of both me and my wife."
Pros: "Crew attentive, professional, appeared to be enjoying job with full plane."
Cons: "The mew food boxes in furst class taste terrible."
Cons: "Delta is always a step above the rest."
Cons: "Better snacks"
Cons: "Broken tray table literally off its hinges and unusable."
Pros: "Very spacious."
Cons: "Delightful experience except at SFO checkin."
Pros: "the crew were very helpful providing all information I need it"
Cons: "No ear plugs offered and my iPhone jack didn’t fit."
Pros: "Definitely pick comfort plus on this flight if you can. You can walk around a lot more on this flight compared to other flights. Food was really good! Recommend the overnight flights...."
Cons: "More leg room would have been nice..."
Pros: "They got us there on time and safe."
Cons: "Nothing really you guys did a really good job getting me to where I need to go.Thank you so much!!!"
Pros: "Pretty much everything"
Cons: "Food somewhat expensive..... boarding off the plane - people with no luggage should get off first then there should be some kind of control instead of everybody just getting in the aisles trying to get their luggage and holding everybody up"
Pros: "Was boarded promptly"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Other travellers where rude"
Pros: "Confort was minor but ok"
Cons: "The flight was not on time. The staff broke my carry-on zip for expansion and refuse to admit it was a suitcase damage which need to be repair. They said put a belt around it to use it !!!! It is a 1 year new piece of luggage from Delsey which is a very good quality brand and expensive!!!!!!"
Pros: "That I was able to change flight within the delta app"
Cons: "There was a big delay."
Cons: "Better customer service. Your employees should be te-trained and reminded they are in a service industry where your clients have other options to fly."
Pros: "Flight was short"
Cons: "My seat didn’t have a window. The woman who booked it told me there was limited recline, THERE WAS NO RECLINE, and she left out there is no window even though she asked me if I wanted window or isle and I chose window. I felt like I was in a closet. Landing was incredibly harsh."
Pros: "We had a terrific trip returning home. Yes, it was crowded but everything was organized and all went well."
Cons: "Airplanes should board back to front. Then people don’t have to get bumped as later passenger try to carry 2 items onto a packed plane."
Cons: "Originally, they were putting me on a flight connecting through Atlanta. However, I was traveling with my brother and there was only one seat on it. After looking again, we were put on a much better route through Detroit. I did not have a seat on the second leg and was stressed that I could get bumped. I made the flight but was given a middle seat. Since I have clostrophobia I began to panic. My brother sacrificed his exit row seat for me. He had booked through Delta. I wondered if he got better treatment because of that"
Pros: "Good snacks. Nice crew. Nice seats."
Cons: "Pay WiFi? JetBlue does it for free.."
Pros: "No problems occured"
Cons: "Takes so long to board"
Pros: "The staff are great very nice pleasant"
Cons: "Wifi doesn't work for long time and have wait long periods to watch something. TV on head reat is nice"
Pros: "Comfortable seat for a short trip."
Cons: "8 hours waiting in airport for a flight that could have been canceled at 3pm and given us our day back. We are traveling as a couple and one of us has a medical procedure scheduled that can’t be canceled. The lack of preparedness for this weather situation is disheartening."
Pros: "Got moved to an aisle seat instead of the middle. The flight wasn’t full so the crew planned ahead and got several people in our party better seats."
Pros: "Flying first class and the attendants were wonderful"
Pros: "good flight and pleasant staff"
Cons: "no vegetarian option in business class therefore nothing to eat for me for whole flight. also sky lounge very poor"
Pros: "The fact I arrived safely"
Cons: "Delayed 40 min then boarded the plane without pilots. Waited another 30 mins for pilots and by the time they got there and settled weather delayed. Sat on plane for another 30 mins then were finally let off the plane. Quiet announcements for reboard most passengers late. Then waited in line for take off for another 25 min. Whole thing was poorly executed. Would expect better from a large airline"
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: "Horrible seats. Scraped up my knees on a screwhead on the seat in front of me. Way too cramped."
Pros: "The flight entertainment and crew were great. They had a lot of the latest movies available to watch, though I'm not sure you'd be able to watch if you didn't have your own headphones (I did). The crew were friendly and helpful. I got a cold cup of coffee when it should have been hot, and they corrected it immediately."
Cons: "They charge you for everything: sitting in an aisle or window seat ($15); checking one piece of luggage ($25); for food, even on a five hour flight, save for complementary snacks like a granola bar or pretzels. I paid $11 for a tiny sandwich (it fit in the palm of my already small hands). I will definitely get good at the airport next time. It may be just as expensive, but at least it will be filling."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 plus hours. Found out about delay from email update vice crew at airport."
Cons: "Older plane and seemingly frustrated crew. They had very little patience."
Cons: "Force me to take a bad seat"
Pros: "Nice staff (check in counter and flight attendants) and good food and smooth ride"
Cons: "I wasn't allowed to bring my hiking poles onto the flight and they didn't fit into my checked bag."
Cons: "When I got to the airport they were not helping me to get to the right place to get my flight I lost it"
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: "It was on time."
Cons: "The plane was dirty and there was a lot of trash around my seat."
Cons: "No space."
Pros: "Food was OK, ice cream at mid-flight was my favorite thing. I liked the choice of movies. Drinks are also good but why not include pure cranberry juice? It goes great with vodka."
Cons: "Boarding is ridiculous. Everyone who is not some kind of VIP is asked to line up and is treated like cattle. 5-feet tall woman holds above her head a sign with the zone currently boarding. Nobody can hear or see anything. Why not use the big LCD displays at the gate??? In the plane they had to restart the computer system as some TVs were not working and it took longer than they said. Toilets were kind of stinky and I could smell them from my seat on row 26. Blankets are way too thin for the blasting AC."
Cons: "Boarding process was very sluggish causing us to be delayed."
Pros: "Not too much this leg!"
Cons: "Baggage retrieval was horrendous! Absolutely a nightmare which after paying for 3 nights hotel with no discount, I was further inconvenienced by the inability to receive my 2nd luggage and after requesting it be delivered, I, I, tracked my bag and you chose to send it 3 days ahead to my destination and I HAVE NOT RECEIVED any acknowledgment of my online inquiry which is why I am complaining. I've had to purchase a new set of luggage AND will have to pay for them on my next 2 legs on Delta. I apologise for seeming so harsh as I know you've had so much trouble because of the tornadoes, but this leg of my trip cost me an additional $800.00 plus AUD and I was here in the US to care for my father who recently had a 2nd heart attack and my final days in USA were meant to be a holiday, and all I can say is the stress because these expenses have removed any enjoyment (I know I'm looking at this half empty, not half full). I'm glad to share this and hope you're company loses will be recouped after this mess! Daniel Grayson Craigieburn, VIC Australia"
Pros: "Clean plane, good service. on time departure, early arrival."
Cons: "I did not like the way the plane was boarded- people could not get into their seats because others blocked the aisles - so chaotic. Passengers were not being rude to one another, it was simply that the process is poor. Could the zones instead reflect both location of seat and area of plane, so that those with window seats at the back board first, then middle seats, then aisle? That way if aisle seats fill first, seated people are not stepping back into the aisle to accommodate others needing to get a seat in that row, while everyone on the gang way must wait for the aisle to clear."
Cons: "they downgraded me from first class to coach"
Cons: "Cramped, uncomfortable tin can of an airplane. Barely tolerable for even an hour’s flight."
Cons: "Seat seemed to have limited ability to recline."
Pros: "I liked that from China to Seattle on the flight itself they took very good care of us making sure we were all comfortable, hydrated and well fed."
Cons: "The Shanghai airport did not open luggage drop off until 3hours before my flight when I was told it would open 5 hours prior, as well as tried to get me to leave to rent a hotel for the night as my layover was a few hours, then delayed Seattle boarding for over 45 minutes, once we were on the plane we were then told we were number 25 to leave therefore leaving us another hour and a half of a delay."
Cons: "Allow business passenger to use front bathroom."
Cons: "Bigger seats the new ones are way to narrow"
Pros: "A flight was delayed due to weather conditions and we had to sit in the plane for almost an hour, BUT information sharing from the Capitan was sufficient and on-time. Very good job from pilots. Leg room in economy - I was positively surprised, very decent leg room! Thank you for providing it."
Cons: "I flew economy and all was good and appropriate to the level."
Pros: "Crew were excellent"
Cons: "Old aircraft. Uncomfortable seats in economy. Entertainment screens old and almost impossible to watch - watched my iPhone! No mobile phone charger."
Cons: "Keep the temperature at a more reasonable level. Blankets + two layers of clothing was definitely not enough."
Cons: "All of the less than good, obvious!"
Pros: "The crews were pretty great!"
Cons: "The regulating of the temperature."
Pros: "Newer plane, crew was amazing, seats were adjustable"
Pros: "Seat was comfy and spacious for economy class"

Pros: "Service is awesome. Food is great."
Cons: "People with short connection are affected by the 15 to 25 minutes delay."
Pros: "Crew was ok."
Cons: "Screens need a serious upgrade, my seat didn’t recline all the way nor could it be restored to an upright position. Not very comfortable and I paid for a seat upgrade."
Cons: "This was just a short commuter flight from Lyon to Amsterdam for connection."
Pros: "Food, entertainment and crew was exceptionally friendly."
Cons: "Seats not great for such a long flight."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and the seat at economy comfort was comfortable at the “ok” level. It needs much mor3 to be super comfortable. The plug for the headphones was a mess! It was NOT possible to watch a movie and hear the sound too! I gave up! Not a great offering for the extra dollars..."
Cons: "So many things! Starting with the way assistance in the airport is offered to travellers with mobility issues! This is an important issue that needs to be revisited and changes for better service to be made!"
Pros: "Cabin facilities"
Cons: "They didn’t bring one of my bags"
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"
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Pros: "On time and friendly crew"
Cons: "Boarding needs improvement"
Cons: "old screens and entertainment system leg room to small"
Cons: "wasn't able to take the flight since I missed it"

Cons: "Nothing special"
Pros: "Shirt flight but well catered, boarding was efficient and quick."
Cons: "Not lots of legroom but adequate for an hour long hop. It was cold on board and also had to board via steps from outside"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "kLM staff was great."
Pros: "Food was excellent, service from staff was friendly, and entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Not a lot of shoulder room being in the middle seat. But it had adjustments options for a lot of other things which were good."
Cons: "You are almost always late!"
Pros: "She was cheerful and genuine. I have dietary restrictions but was unable to preorder a meal. She went out of her way to find an available meal for me. I also saw her bring other passengers extra snacks and drinks."
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Pros: "The attendants took great care of us. Super smooth flight."
Cons: "Our two hour connection in Paris became 30 minutes because Air France was late in leaving Washington. So our luggage didn't make to to KLM to Amsterdam. My poor rating was because the luggage handling was really poor. Lots of flights from Paris to Amsterdam (almost hourly), but my bag showed up 12 hours later. My wife's bag took 36 hours. And yes, we checked in together. There were lots of confusing messages"
Pros: "We are guessing they either overbooked or they didn't have sufficient passengers on a Tuesday afternoon who's final stop was Glasgow. They rebooked him for 1200 the next day. DFW to MN, St Paul to Schipole, Amsterdam to final destination, Glasgow. So he ends up having to pay for another Lyft back to our apartment in Dallas, then another additional one for the 12 noon flight the next morning. If he didn't have family living in Dallas, he would've incurred a hotel fee too."
Cons: "He was bumped to the next day due to his flight being cancelled. Then re-booked the next day, with an additional layover. Then due to a 32 minute layover that left 3 minutes sooner..."
Pros: "Crew were friendly. Flight was comforyable smooth and on time. Nice snack."
Pros: "Bording was good and general flight ok"
Cons: "This airplane must be the oldest in the fleet. No USB, no charging, no touchscreen technology, no plugs, no bluetooth."
Cons: "Missing wheel chairs swrvice lounge far away no food option just lame klm tipique"
Pros: "The crew came to get me from the arrival gate to get to the departure gate since our plane was delayed. It helped to know that the airline was checking to make sure we made the flight."
Cons: "I did not get my luggage in Nairobi. The delayed flight that was the most likely reason it did not get to the connecting flight to Nairobi."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful personnel."
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze and the staff were lovely. Online check was very simple and easy to navigate."
Cons: "The amount of extras you have to click no to while checking in online."
Pros: "Flight was on time and quick and comfortable"
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."
Pros: "Great crew service. Among the best ever."

Pros: "Catering is ok"
Cons: "Seats comfort really old school"
Cons: "Pet was left behind at vacation destination as pet's reservation (made and confirmed through KLM) was not found at check in. Waiting for Customer Care to help get pet home and take responsibility for situation and getting no response. Very dissapointed, considering law suit."
Pros: "Professional, friendly service. Punctual, safe flight. Comfortable, spotless airplane."
Cons: "What is there not to like about KLM? I cannot find anything."

Cons: "Entertainment system old and not as many options as other KLM flight. No power on aircraft for charging"

Pros: "The crew were great but the entrainment socket on my seat was broken so I couldn’t watch anything"
Cons: "Making sure everything works properly"
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."
Pros: "Crew seemed happy"
Cons: "Absolutely no leg space and I'm only average height"
Pros: "I’m pleasantly surprised that this ancient plane made it across the Atlantic"
Cons: "Broken entertainment system, no charging ports, broken window screens, broken reading lights, no AC. Plane was too old to be in service"

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: "Nothing to like at all."
Cons: "There is no food even water at international flight!!! Terrible service."
Pros: "polite crew"
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: "Food - my dog wouldn’t eat it, Entertainment - woeful same movie just different title, Late again they must specialise in being late"
Pros: "The quality of the plane was good and the movies were good. Also the blanket and pillow was nice."
Cons: "I was really cramped and couldn’t recline because the guy behind me was too tall and it amashes his legs, so I had to be uncomfortable for the entire flight."
Pros: "On time, attentive staff"
Pros: "Aircraft ok never fly them"
Cons: "Had to pay for everything no included drinks or pretzels"
Pros: "Flight arrived 30 minutes early."
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."
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: "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."
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."
Cons: "No USB ports and entertainment options were just OK compared to other airlines."
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: "Flight crew were great"
Cons: "No room in the seats. I'm not heavy and was almost unable to move."
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: "Crew is very nice"
Cons: "Seats are pretty small"
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: "I tried to reserve my seat and do a 24 hr advance check-in - no luck. I was in the airport in Munich at 9am, could not get a boarding pass for the London-Boston leg and asked to have an isle seat reserved - no such luck!! I was squeezed in on a window seat in a row of 3. Try to get up when the 2 people in your row are deep asleep! I was disappointed that they did not honor my request, which was made online and supposedly held in the booking system. Heathrow is another story - terrible airport, no decent food. Oh, and BA even charges for water on the European flights. How low can you go?"
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!"
Pros: "Very quick flight, arrived way before the estimated time of arrival."
Cons: "Have you operational logistics more organized. This was a sup-par traveling experience on many levels."
Cons: "The wifi was never turned on so we never had any entertainment available. This made the flight less enjoyable."
Cons: "Been non discriminatory"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable didn’t have to pay extra for my personal day crew was polite"
Pros: "I was arriving only 45 minutes prior to departure time. Not able to check in my luggage. AA ticketing agent allowed me to bring my garment bag through security and to be checked in at the gate. Thank you very much!"
Cons: "Nothing really. Very satisfied customer here."
Pros: "Flight was short."
Cons: "Everything else"
Cons: "Late as usual"
Cons: "30 min late"
Pros: "Plane was newer than I expected. Had tv monitors on the back of seat headrests."
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour because the flight crew was late."
Pros: "There was a lot of entertainment choices"
Cons: "Seats are so crammed. Plane was late."
Pros: "Made it to my destination"
Cons: "2-hour delay in the plan after departure from the gate for maintenance. The seats are so small that my knees hit the seat in front of me the entire flight."
Pros: "The crew were nice, glad I paid for the extra legroom."
Cons: "The food was only so-so, but it’s only a short flight so you can’t expect too much."
Pros: "miserable. Flight."
Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "No concerns What I expected for a quick flight"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Pros: "great trip and crew"
Pros: "great trip and crew"
Cons: "Again, I paid for extra legroom when I purchased seats for a British airways flight and at check in I was rerouted to an American Airlines flight. The seats were the same in the entire aircraft except for first class. I want a refund!"
Pros: "After the initial delay, the female desk agent got us on another connecting flight without a problem. Second flights attendant was also great."
Cons: "They boarded the plane, only to tell us they had to de-ice, which is understandable. However, after waiting 20 min for the de-icing that never came, they made us get back off the plane because of mechanical issues. The captain/pilot was rude to the woman working the desk over the radio, to the point where she had to leave the desk and go speak to him in person (she knew we could hear everything.) That conversation is also how the whole line of people was informed that then knew about this mechanical issue since the night before, and chose not to fix it before boarding all of us. After getting to Philadelphia later than expected, we were forced to pay for hotel food that was horrible and overpriced. Only to then have our plane be delayed AGAIN because of mechanical issues, again the pilot not giving much information to the attendant she was faced by a room of 40 angry people and had no answers. The departure time slowly crawled out longer, and the only reason I knew was because of having the American app. Information/communication on all ends was poor. I usually fly Allegiant, which is notoriously “cheap,” and I’ve never had an experience like this. Happy my boyfriend has flown with American before and knew to give us an extra day so we didn’t miss the wedding we paid $800 in airline tickets to attend. Just disappointed."
Cons: "The plane was not full. I sat in row 32 with two people on either side of me. In the row in front of me there were no people in it. What’s up with that? We also sat on the tarmac at the time that we were supposed to be deplaning. We were waiting on another plane to back out of the gate for 10 minutes. What’s up with that?? American Airlines, get your act together!!!!!"
Cons: "spending $600 on a one way flight with you today has been the worst experience and rip off ever! Delayed in Hartford 6 hours. Changed my layover flight in Dallas. Now Dallas delayed 1 hour."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "No delay. Good smooth ride"
Cons: "Plane was smaller than the outgoing plane. Seats were not the ones i originally chose"
Cons: "Gate agent told me it wasn't his job to quickly verify if my luggage had made it on the plane after my 10 minute sprint in PHX. I know at my job, I don't get the luxury of telling customers "it's not my job", especially when the customer has had a bad experience with us."
Pros: "Enough leg room. Free movies"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "The staff was very helpful"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that, I was ask to help a non English person, whom spoke French find their way to the departure area from check in. I could not understand their broken English. That I feel is the job of the person or staff trying to check them in."
Pros: "Excellent. on Time. Friendly crew"
Pros: "The crew was pleasent and helpful"
Cons: "Didn't get my bag, on either end"
Pros: "Planes were punctual and smooth flight"
Cons: "don’t know! didn’t get to phoenix because of plane issues"
Cons: "The flight was a bit delayed and was not cleaned at all, may be because of short of time, but minimized the further delay, so acceptable."
Pros: "Beautiful new Boeing 777, comfortable seats. Smooth flight. Skillful landing. No delays."
Cons: "Nothing to eat - one cookie!"
Pros: "Personell at Bagage drop was nice"
Cons: "First the time between connection flights was very short. Then after just making the. Innextion sat for almost 2 hours on board . Missed introductory lunch for my new summer job at my college -"
Cons: "Essentially a bus ride with the comfort of a wooden bench."
Pros: "Prompt boarding"
Cons: "I could never sync in the entertainment app and wifi"
Pros: "Seat next to mine was free. Ice cream was good."
Cons: "The crew looked sad at best, angry at worst. Never smiled. It looked like they felt like they were in bondage, not rude but very much like they hated their jobs. Two flight attendants were obese, the rest were just overweight, all but one unkempt, sloppy, washed out. Worst looking crew I've ever seen. I think they belong in another field. No inflight film after many attempts to re-boot system. What has happened to American Airlines standards, they used to be so high?"
Cons: "Felt sufforcation again and flight was delayed"
Cons: "My flight was delayed leaving Ft Myers because of weather in Dallas. I got to Dallas and went to my connecting flight and was told I didn't have a seat anymore. No reason given, they just said you don't have a seat anymore and I'd have to take another flight. Complete garbage."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Gate agent told me my bag would fit under seat but when I got on board found it would not and had to do gate check."
Pros: "The flight attendant lady from 1st class/Business held my suit jacket for me to grab on the way out. Simple thing, but very thoughtful and kind. Love it."
Cons: "The negatives are puny compared to what made me happy in this trip. Thanks AA! Please thank that nice lady for me!"
Pros: "It was a flight, it got me from point A to point B, but everything in between could've been much better."
Cons: "When first boarding the plane, the person I was with tried to close the shade on the window, the with frame and the first 2 pieces of glass popped out. We notified the flight attendant and his response was "can you stick your arm out the window and wave? No... ok you're fine" then we were notified the bathrooms in the middle of the plane were out of order and we could only use the bathrooms at the rear of the plane. There was no WiFi, and the audio system for the on board movies wasn't working. The flight attendants were only giving out cups of beverages and not the full can, which isnt a big deal but still looks bad on the airline considering everywhere flight with American has handed out full cans of soda. The perception was American dropped the ball on the his plane, and just didn't care to do the necessary maintenance. For the his head priced paid for the his hehe see tickets I would've expected better from a reputable airline. Needless to say we were a little disappointed."
Pros: "Staff and customer service were great"
Pros: "It was a short flight to begin with but due to winds it was delayed."
Cons: "Due to bumpy air nothing but water was handed out to cabin passengers. 1st class managed tho. We were asked to stay seated almost the entire flight, although people still went to restroom as needed. After a late night it would have been nice for a little bite to eat. But apparently mother nature thought otherwise."
Pros: "The food was good for airline food. The exit rows do give you more leg room."
Cons: "However if you sit in an exit row or directly in front of one you cannot recline your seat. This is a big deal if it is an overnight flight like the one I had because it makes it very difficult to sleep."
Pros: "No comment"
Cons: "No food or drink given to me. Deliberately ignored by crew."
