Cons: "The movie selection was limited and dated"
Cons: "Refused to change my flt date after I realized I made a one day mistake inadvertently. I called within 10 minutes afterwards. This was 6 months before the actual flt date. Customer service was snarky, unapologetic, and almost happy that I could not change the date or get any kind of refund."

Pros: "Smooth flight. Fairly good meals. Friendly crew."
Pros: "Airbus A380 -- the most comfortable and quiet passenger plane that I have ever flown in Very friendly service, who even remembered my name!"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and as I almost did not make my connection flight at FRA, I got bumped up to business class. So my seat was very comfy and the food was excellent."
Cons: "My only concern was my flight from BUD to FRA which was delqyed by 20 mins. So i had to rush to make my connection. I had less then 15mins to run from a gate B to gate Z58 and pass US passport control. Luckily I made the flight but my luggage did not. The 55mins layover is not a sufficient one considering the size of FRA airport especially when the first flight is late."
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: "The airline crew was responsive and professional. The flight was also very smooth."
Cons: "The boarding process was like a buffet: first come first served."
Pros: "Great departure time. Super comfortable even in coach."
Cons: "The second meal was a bit skimpy and not so tasty."
Pros: "The engagement of the crew. The coffee and cake. The attendant offered to help me with my bag to the door of the aircraft. The same attendant remembered to give me coffee later and provided the stir stick just as I was able ask for one. I felt cared for."
Cons: "They ran out of the protein meal selections.e.g. Chicken I think. Pasta with sauce and one small cube of cheese with a little salad does not qualify as a balanced mealThe attendant tried to make up for it by giving me more cheese blocks."
Cons: "Very poor connecting flight information for check in. United connecting flight through Lufthansa has no information. Have to ask around airport and nobody seems to know exactly when United will open for checkin. Discover next morning it is only 2 hrs before flight, 1.5 hrs before boarding. Lufthansa made no effort to pass along their connecting flight information, they just drop all responsibility and say it is a United flight so offer no help. First and last time with Lufthansa."
Pros: "The Germans are known for their efficiency and Lufthansa followed through with that. From the check-in process to cabin service, all was top notch. As I was sitting near the front of economy, any "extra" economy plus meals were handed out as to avoid waste. I was the recipient of a delicious Caprese salad. A nice treat."
Cons: "Too warm"
Cons: "Was delayed which caused us to miss our connecting flight"
Pros: "All good - flight, service all great!!!"
Pros: "Caring staff, nice TV screens, good food."
Pros: "Friendly crew"

Pros: "Real silverware and glasses for dinner and the best blanket on any flight I've ever taken."
Pros: "Lufthansa makes coach travel tolerable. Blankets, pillows, free access to on board entertainment and a large selection of real food, not just snacks, and beverages. All beverages available the entire flight. Plane was clean and everything in working order."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Awesome entertainment options, great dinner everything was yummy. Nice flight attendant"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, breakfast was horrible except for fruit salad."
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: "Very professional crew !!"
Cons: "Nothing to write ."
Pros: "They putet my mom and niece at the last seats of the air plan and that wasn't comfortable at all and a lots of noise thy had a huge headache"
Cons: "Give them seat in the middle of the airplane at least"
Cons: "My plane was non existent and put me on a time crunch for connecting flight."
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)"
Pros: "Courtesy and friendliness of staff."
Cons: "The cheapo headphones"
Pros: "I love Lufthansa: flight attendants so attentive, Complimentary services that other airlines charge for. Attentive staff...and I flew economy."
Cons: "I saw fly inside the cabin, disgusting."
Pros: "Well taken care of"
Cons: "Seats are very close together in Economy"
Cons: "The seat that I paid for was taken from me by Lufthansa without explanation or a refund."
Pros: "Comfortable, price, staff, on time,food/drinks, entertainment..."
Cons: "Traveled with elderly father...all great until Boston Logan Airport. Wheel chairs supposedly went to wring gate. 5 or 6 needed chairs. Waited min of 10-15 minutes standing!!! My father requested to use bathroom... Boston Lufthansa staff refused to let him step back in plane leaving him standing and very uncomfortable!!! Staff on plane and others applauded at how poorly handled this was. Then finally got chair.. At end of ramp saw a min of 4 chairs and 3 people doing nothing... Still had 4 or 5 people waiting for assistance. Our assistant did not speak English... Or minimal... I told him where we needed to go for scheduled bus he did not listen... Dropping my Dad a significant distance from where I told him... He refused to take him there. Other wheel chair person was dropped there.. So not out of range... But found out they were dropped at wrong stop too!!! However... I believed that most was Logan's fault... But the lack of compassion on Boston Lufthansa was very upsetting to all... But .. Still believe Lufthansa is a wonderful airline and I will in time try to forgive that agent."
Pros: "SAS and BA can do better"
Pros: "Excellent Flight"
Pros: "Short easy comfortable flight."
Cons: "Nothing to complain. Thank you for the great service :)"
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."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Frequent food and beverage service, plus 2 hot towel offerings."
Cons: "My headphones stopped working 1 hour into the flight, so I just watched movies with subtitles. No air vents, so it was really warm. I'm only 5'2" and felt really cramped in the seats."
Cons: "More food"
Pros: "fast and friendly checkin, fast boarding, easy transmit"
Pros: "The hotel was nice although I was unable to sleep due to the delays all around concerning my connecting flight. I am thoroughly upset because I contacted the airlines 3 times in May to express my concern with the 30mins layover. And to no avail. My worst concerns are being played out now. It appears that their isn’t any concern from the airlines about this catastrophe impacting so many people. Shame on you."
Cons: "The connecting flight departed before the first flight landed. Then I was given the wrong information of gate departure by airport personnel. After running like crazy to find this gate for departure, the plane had already departed before we even landed. There wasn’t anyone around to help, and finally I found an airport worker who gave me the same incorrect information. She was as perplexed as was I. Finally, she directed me to the information booth where I was booked in a flight the next day. The food voucher was insufficient to cover dinner, i had to pay out of my pocket but I was frugal given the financial situation. The taxi service personnel were rude and it took a long time to taxi me to the hotel where I am unable to sleep because I have an early morning g departure. All in all, between the airport delays getting me to the hotel, lack of proper food and treatment by personnel, I am exhausted and lost sleep in the process."
Pros: "Nothing. I will never put her tickets from From here again."
Cons: "Terrible food and service"
Pros: "Everything was just right."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful, food was tasty and flight was nice and smooth."
Cons: "It would be wonderful to have all seats the same as first class for a long distance flight."
Cons: "small seats,no LCD for each one,food nor so good."
Pros: "Timely departure and pleasant staff on board"
Cons: "It was cold during the flight,"
Pros: "Good service overall, the ground crew was very helpful and friendly"
Cons: "very late"
Cons: "The plane was HUGE, too big. With such a big plane the crowd formed by the gate waiting to board was unmanageable. Also the giant plane felt like it was hard to maneuver during take off and landing. I would very much prefer a smaller plane. The touch screen in front of me was not always responding when I tried to tap the screen. The audio jack was also not working great; sometimes I did not have audio in my right earbud and I had to turn and fidget the plug. The earbuds provided by the airline did not even work when plugged into the screen, I had to use my own earbuds."
Cons: "We are late only 25 min (50% of flight - 50 min)"
Pros: "I'm so happy I did not book Austrian Airlines for the way back to Zurich."
Cons: "My checked in baggage did not arrive with me, the staff told me it'll arrive the same day in the evening but it did not and nobody informed me, I only found out after calling them 5 times (which 2 times they hung up on me after putting me on hold). My bag only arrived almost 35 hours after i already landed Hong Kong, without being able to tell me when exactly and made me sit and wait for them to deliver it at mid-night."
Pros: "Had 45 Min to connect at vienna airport and our first flight was delayed so we had to run to get in time to the gate. Literally the gate was on the opposite side of the airport. Bad logistics"
Pros: "Service was great, the stewardess's were very professional and very caring without being too personal which is great for me .Every was done quickly and professionally with a great sense of efficiency and purpose .Hard to explain but so different from other airlines . Multimedia was phenomenal"
Cons: "Food portions were smallish but acceptable .Seat reservation service got totally mixed up ,reserved one seat and got another .Maybe software glitch ,needs to be fixed."
Cons: "the entertainment was broken, they didn't offer WIFI. the crew was very rude and crabby."
Pros: "The personal service, the meals and the accommodations - wonderful!"
Pros: "It was a very safe trip"
Cons: "Small space in Economy class"
Pros: "Very friendly staff"
Cons: "we had some delay, and they did not inform us at all how long this will take. so this is something ot work on."
Cons: "We were almost three hours late on arrival. Being at VIE airport after midnight with no buses going home is no fun."
Pros: "Absolutely nothin Airlines was courteous enough to provide hotel which was just abt ok"
Cons: "Reschedulle of my journey to next day, everything tat followed"
Pros: "Short flight, no major issues."
Pros: "On time departure, friendly staff"
Cons: "GET AN AGREEMENT WITH GLOBAL ENTRY"
Pros: "Organized orderly boarding. Food was snack only. Flight crew was pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive, generous and courteous."
Pros: "Make sure your carry on luggage is less then 8 kg. Or you would have to check it at your own cost. The food is OK but the portion is very small. If you want a window or isle seat, it would’ve cost you 30 euro to reserve it. The crew is very nice. I guess because the air fare is very cheap, they need to do everything to make the extra cash."
Pros: "Boarding time and arrival were both on time. Service is courteous, and the lounge very pleasant."
Cons: "I will never fly Austrian again! They disrespected my family, they did not honor my reservations, and the staff was just nasty!"
Pros: "Being on time"
Cons: "No pillows,only carb food"
Pros: "Plane left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Rude gate agent. Small seats, no leg room, very crowded together. Clearly a budget airline - should be marketed as such."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and I lost my luggage."
Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "Attention during waiting time and inside cabin"
Pros: "I loved the boarding process. Everything was very organized! I was lucky to sit by myself next to the window, so i had plenty of space to stretch. The flight was right on schedule, so i didnt have to worry about making it to the next flight. Food was good. We were offered the water through the whole trip which is nice, because i always feel super dehydrated on the plane."
Cons: "I wasn't very satisfied with the flight attendants. I don't know if its just me getting used to american customer service, or me actually working at the customer service, but it's definetely not the greatest level of service. Girls were giving me an attitude and "smartie" ( in a rude way) responds which kinda made me feel uncomfortable and disrespected. I had the same experience with Lufthansa before. And once with russian airlines. Maybe its some kinda tendency to get erogant at this job, but please, don't get me wrong, its not that kinda job where you should look at people from above"
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "There was nothing in specific that I didn't like!"
Pros: "Very carrying crew, kind and attentive"
Cons: "Not too many choices for entertainment, a lot of Asian movies. Food was OK"
Cons: "Austrian cancelled my flight from berlin and rebooked me 2 :/6: later without even letting me know, like if I don't have anything else to do than wait in berlin for 2 days!"
Cons: "Predictably, why I was expected to meet the tight schedule between planes squeezed by the 1st flight leaving one hour later than planned, my checked-in baggage apparently wasn't. So for me 35 minutes was more than enough to go through yet another passport checkpoint, security checkpoint, run like a headless chicken then travel by bus to the plane; for AU it wasn't enough to transfer my bag to the connecting flight."
Pros: "bording, take off, landing were on time excellent service on board crew was professional, present, smiling, creating feeling of comfort would definitely fly again with Austrian and recommend the airline to my friends and family"
Cons: "On my way to Bulgaria, I flew to Varna and would have liked to have a return flight from Varna, that makes the connection for Chicago"
Pros: "Crew and boarding were fine. But nothing to crow about. Just not stressful."
Cons: "That was the most uncomfortable flight I have had. It was hard fora short flight, though sitting so close to another passenger, side and front was stressful. Plus, my back was killing me by the end of the short flight- and the long flight from Europe to the US was hard. It was pretty much knocking elbows with the passenger next to me when eating. And mind you- no passenger in my row as any larger than the average person. The seat recline was fine and marginally helpful in relieving back strain- except it did put you in the lap of the passenger behind you. The passenger across the aisle from me shoved the seat in front of her and told the passenger in front of her he could NOT recline. The passenger next to her (I assume her husband) joined in with the shoving. I finally felt a need to intervene and calm them down as it began to escalate- and I did want the flight to continue. Note- while I think the passengers shoving the seat were a bit rude- the crowded nature of the seating with the recline was hard, so I understand. But the person in front had a reason (and a NEED given the discomfort) to lean his seat back. The seats were simply too uncomfortable to keep them upright. I helped them find a recline for both passengers that was reasonably okay. I also tried to get my recline somewhere between comfortable for me (impossible) and reasonable in space for the person behind me, This is an airline problem. And when people wonder about the rise in passenger rage... this cramming in is it. I had to use Austrian because of a last minute need to book a flight- given the inability to relax even a little and the residual back and leg pain ... thus my ability to immediately jump into work during a busy work and travel schedule means that I will definitely not take this airline again. If you are shorter than 5' 5 and weigh about 100 lbs- this might be okay. Otherwise, expect to be a lot of rats shoved in a cage."
Pros: "Excellent service on airplane, ample legroom in economy, the largest movie selection I've seen on a flight, delicious food. I had the vegetarian option and I was not disappointed."
Cons: "The boarding process at Vienna airport was unorganized and took longer than necessary."
Pros: "Choice of movies Pillow plus blanket Snack-1/2 sandwich plus caramel mousse"
Cons: "I wasn't able to check in online therefor i got terrible seat. The guy next to me was very tall and big and he was stuck on me due to not enough space. I was extremly uncomfortable because he was rude when i asked him to let me out. I asked if i can change seats but the plane was full. I didn't get any sleep either. Extremly tiring and turbulent 10 hour flight."
Pros: "In-flight magazine was interesting."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 35 minutes. I made my connection. But heard one woman say she and her husband would miss hers."
Pros: "everything on time, good selection of movies"
Cons: "the food....pretty bad"
Cons: "I had no notification about luggage fee in airport upon registration."
Pros: "I am gluten free, and the stewardess knew what foods I could eat of the desserts and snacks, and I appreciated that there was food that I could eat."
Cons: "Did not make this connecton, was directed to Frankfurt"
Cons: "There were no air vents, which made for a hot flight."
Pros: "The premium economy- it was the most uncomfortable - tight seats. The back of the seats are not reclining It’s not worth the money you pay for premium services"
Cons: "The premium economy should be eliminated and should be labeled for what it is: couch class with some perks"
Pros: "Clean plane , good crew ,"
Cons: "they didn't load my baggage from flight 1 to 2"
Pros: "Good aircraft, good service, on time, eventless"
Cons: "There are two types of foot-rests, both are a nuisance for people with long legs. The one popping up from below one's seat is extremely hard to put back in place. The metallic one folding down from under the seat in front cannot be secured back and is always in the way if the passenger needs to stretch his/her legs. This seems to be a new appliance, and I jut wish they would do away with it altogether. More is not necessarily better."
Cons: "Delay in take off 45 min!!!!"
Pros: "Crew asked us if we’d like to move to an empty row to be more comfortable without us even requesting it."
Cons: "Bigger coffee cups? Really nothing to complain about. Everything I would expect from a flight. A++"
Cons: "The entertainment system was very old with minimum selection. My entertainment system actually stopped working. The seating area was very cramped. I called for service a couple of times from my seat, but nobody came."
Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Had to use a shoe horn to get into and out of my seat and I'm not a large guy. But really my harsh criticism comes from the loss of my girlfriends luggage. It was left behind in Paris on our way to Casablanca causing us to waste a day in Casablanca traveling back to the airport the grab the bag the next day. And to add injury to insult her bag was left behind in JFK during our transfer for our flight to Seattle. No big deal right, Delta will deliver the bag to our house the next day, wrong, we were told we have to go to the airport ourselves to get the bag."
Pros: "The seats were spacious and the crew was wonderful. The crew actually made the long flight more tolerable. Will seek out Delta/Air France for further international flights."
Pros: "Spacious business class seats, excellent meals"
Cons: "Lack of ventilation in cabin, and staff refusal to turn heaters down (in September), very limited entertainment options."
Cons: "Seat angle adjustment was not the most comfortable for sleeping."
Cons: "Thé qualité officielle the images"
Pros: "Great crew and entertainment. Terrible experience at CDG airport but that’s the airports fault."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Food could be better, or at least be provided an option to purchase an upgraded meal. Also, insufficient amount of drinking water provided to passengers."
Pros: "Crew was really good, polite, efficient. The aircraft was relatively new and clean (rare for an airline to provide a new craft on an Africa segment). Food was good, seats comfortable. Will definitely make them my airline of choice to the extent that I can cost wise."
Cons: "Placed in last row w/ non-reclining seats, even though bought tix 7 months early. We travel w/ only carry-on bags. AF allows 35 kg each but only 12 kg in cabin. I asked, online, twice, if we could have a couple of extra kg for hand pieces. Rec’d only auto. luggage policy. Forced to check both bags."
Pros: "The cue lines per zone are the most brilliant idea!"
Cons: "After boarding began there was a backup after the gate en route to the plane. No explanation. The plane left an hour later than scheduled but seemed to arrive close to scheduled time."
Cons: "It was a great flight can’t think of anything"
Pros: "Everything! It was a wonderful experience."
Cons: "Air conditioning too cold. Wasn't offered an evening meal. My luggage went missing and I'm still waiting for it to be delivered."
Pros: "The crew was helpful and accommodating"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, missed connection, and lost baggage. Subpar."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Food could have been much better in comparison with other airlines."
Cons: "they lost our luggage very inconvenient"
Cons: "10 minutes late to the airport....... No help, no refund, no nothing. Never using you again"
Pros: "No extra charge for simple refreshments."
Pros: "The Air France service was ok. Got me to my destination on time and alive."
Cons: "I flew out on KLM on what felt like a new plane. Amazing service, seat, temperature, entertainment and food. In stark comparison Air France’s plane was old, too hot, poor entertainment choices and system and average food which for the French was surprising!"
Pros: "Flight attendant Ms. Sophie Picard made every extra effort to try to find a meal when they had run out of Business Class meals. She made up for the uncomfortable seating in Business Class."
Cons: "Business class seating on the AirBus 318 is very cramped."
Pros: "Efficient and smooth flight. Service was great and flight attendants were friendly"
Pros: "Good size plane. It didn’t end up being full so there was plenty of room to move around. Quick flight and easy."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Food has improved a lot on business class. Meals are more creative."
Cons: "Water bottles not given out unless ou ask for it. Crew needs to better trained with how to handle business class..."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and professional. The food very good"
Cons: "First the plane was delayed because of a technical issue that I think they should check before The plane was crowded and old."
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent"
Cons: "We were transported to the plane which was quite some distance to the plane via bus after climbing down steep stairs from the departure gate area. Then we had to climb steep steps in extremely hot weather. We were then delayed for a hour in the plane in very hot conditions as the plane had its air conditioning off and the ground air conditioning was not put on. We were swearing in the heat for an hour!! We arrived at our destination and hour and half late!!"
Cons: "Crew not only lacked sensibility to understand the purpose of an emotional support dog but kept harassing me about the dog being tied to my seat. At some point a flight attendant even tried to touch my dog, invading my personal space. When the dog rightfully acted defensive trying to protect me, the crew member started threatening me that he would have the dog sent to cargo, the last thing a person with an emotional support pet wants to hear. Extreme lack of professionalism."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 times and when I was finally put on a flight that was leaving, they failed to check the connection in Paris (Left me 10 minutes to get from the aircraft to the other plane!) I was moved to SAA in the end after a truly traumatic time in Johannesburg. This is not the first time I have suffered at the hands of Air France sadly. Needless to say, I wont be booking with Air France again."
Cons: "CDG is a monster. The distances are long . The signage is poor and when I asked for directions the diirections I got were wrong."
Cons: "Its been a week. My trip has ended. I still do not have my bags. Terrible customer service."
Pros: "The airbus 380 was great and the staff very nice"
Cons: "Too mych bad smells after a few hours"
Pros: "Smoothness of flight and service"
Cons: "In a french airline, chinese-cuisine meal was more attractive than western. Unbelievable! Entertainment: films were either too old, or too uninteresting"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Window pane was broken on my side and I couldn't shut it down. As it was a day flight the sun heated my skin badly"
Pros: "Got pillow, blanket, headphone and eye cover"
Cons: "Older plane Very small tv screen Didn't get the bread roll with my dinner. Asked for it but she didn't bring it to me. No usb plug to charge"
Pros: "Friendly onboard staff"
Cons: "Treated like cattle while boarding unless your preferred member. Average food quality."
Pros: "Leg room is bigger than average, there is also a foot step which helps you to relax."
Cons: "There must be lice on the plane, either from the customer or on the seats. Got bitten 6 times on the leg and butt!!! And this is not the first time hearing same story, Air France definitely needs to disinfect the plane more thoroughly. Media center is outdated, touch screen isn’t working well, felt being punched in head every time when ppl behind you tries to touch the screen!"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Food could be a bit better. White bread is unhealthy."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Not enough food"
Pros: "Cheap aircraft, not even headsets"
Cons: "Dirty aircraft, I expect more when I pay a lot"
Pros: "It was a short flight."
Cons: "Seat to seat space OK for anyone under 4 ft tall. Pressed intoth seat framein front, I couldn't even turn or get my feet under the seat to extend."
Pros: "The food was good, the staff was very friendly and very nice,"
Cons: "The seat configuration in economy is unacceptable, the leg room is terrible and overall a very uncomfortable flight of more than 7 hours"
Pros: "The service provided by Jet and Air France was excellent. The wheelchair service did help very much"
Pros: "Movie selection was awesome! Food was good too."
Cons: "Too many interruptions. Every time there's an announcement, it interrupts the movies and some of the announcements were completely unnecessary and there were so many of them, it was like constant interruptions, really annoying."
Pros: "I like service of AF"
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"
Pros: "Sarah the Cabin Manager was amazing."
Cons: "The business seats are horrible"
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: "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: "Was surprised that you have to pay for all drinks. They want 2.50 for a baby can of coke."
Cons: "Are you kidding me? Plane was delayed and we miss the next plane. We were in airport 14hr. Still in London."
Pros: "Crew and seat comfort."
Cons: "No entertainment, not even available if you paid."
Pros: "On time, attentive staff"
Pros: "Flight arrived 30 minutes early."
Pros: "Cabin relatively new. Leg room in economy adequate. Cabin crew pleasant"
Cons: "Zero checked baggage allowance!! CDN$70 for first checked bag if booked before hand, $113 per checked bag if paid at airport!! All food and drink on this 4 hour flight from London to Santorini must be paid for!! No peanuts. No cup of soda/pop. Maybe a small plastic cup of water. Bring your own iPod or tablet. No seatback entertainment! On Airbus with very limited overhead hand baggage capacity. Roundtrip cost of this 4 hour flight CDN$800 per person booked 3 months in advance, not much less than transatlantic flight of almost twice the time from Toronto to London on Air Canada Boeing 787 with loads of overhead luggage capacity, free first checked bag, 8 inch screen seat back entertainment system, charging ports, one major meal with wine / beer, unlimited pop, plus snack. A real shocker to get Ryanair amenities on this British Airways flight which was no bargain."
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: "Crew and food"
Cons: "A day before my flight it was already known that it is delayed (how possible...?) and it was delayed. Even though we were on time to board plane to Boston we had to wait for another flight."
Pros: "The crew were professional and helpful. The movie selection was great. I like the flight tracking 3D feature."
Cons: "The seats provide very little legroom."
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."
Cons: "Fight was delayed 30 minutes so we missed our connecting flight to Madrid. We are stuck in London for the night, the food is not edible at the hotel they gave us and now we are stuck rearranging all of our future travel plans because we can't get to Madrid until tomorrow. This is our worst travel experience ever. We will never fly British Airways again."
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: "Smooth and nice flight. Crew was friendly and attentative."
Cons: "I found it surprisingly coincidental that both my wife's and my checked bags did not make the flight to Santorini. Of course, given how the process in dealing with Kayak and this booking, it did not surprise me. Any calls or customer service related questions were handled as though we were 2nd class citizens. I've never been treated like this traveling, but always the attitude came from "oh, you booked this through a discount site" and then I was handled accordingly. I booked it through Kayak for ease as I planned a 7-city, 21 day trip around the Adriatic. Now we'll do our honeymoon without a wardrobe change, filing claims for the contents of our bags, as no one can tell us what happened, or where the bags are, and we're about to depart for our next city. Never, NEVER book a trip from a 3rd party. The seats next to the toilets that don't recline, attitude from airlines, now my first lost bag in 10 years (I fly 3 times a month, too)."
Pros: "Did not make this flight"
Cons: "Did not make this flight"
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: "I was upgraded to World Traveler Class. There was a lot more legroom. Also there was great movie select."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good movie selection, free wine with meal"
Cons: "Flight attendants not friendly, poor service, terrible breakfast."
Pros: "It arrived in Greece on time, good landing."
Cons: "Arrived in Greece for daughter's wedding. They lost all 14 family members luggage for 4 days!! Received our luggage 6PM the night before wedding, which caused terrible distress for the Bride especially and all 14 family members. Imagine being in Greece for 4 days with nothing but the clothes you traveled in. Horrible!! Will never buy a BA ticket again."
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"
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"
