Pros: "Everything..."
Cons: "Brighter, kinder and nicer faces."

Cons: "The Delta flight leaving Cleveland was a hour and a half late so we could not make our connection to get home and had to overnight in Minneapolis. This is the fourth time in six flights For Delta. I think the Kayak booking algorithm needs to allow more time between connecting flights."

Cons: "Notes were in the computer that our flight was delayed in someone at Delta told us we had to re book because we were not 2 hours prior to our flight after arriving in a cab. Delta error. Other lady told us to run to a security and get to the gate which we did and there were notes in the system and t"

Pros: "Staff were friendly. Nothing they could do about the maintenance issue that we experienced."
Cons: "Hour delay due to a maintenance issue. This was a hassle in and of itself, but the flight was also on New Year's Eve and ended up getting us to Buffalo about 20 minutes before midnight, which was a bit disappointing when I had made previous plans for the night.

Pros: "The agents in the air were a lot more understanding and at least apologized."
Cons: "I understand if we need to check bags because its full but when iy is not full but you demand I check it anyway all you are doing is adding travel time to my trip. Also we needed things in our bags that we otherwise would have had. Not the best customer service at the gate."

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

Pros: "The flight was great."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours. Arriving at Incheon, discovered ground crew were unaware of our arrival to take this connecting flight. However, we were put up overnight in a hotel, which was nice."

Pros: "The staff at the front desk for the check-in were extremely helpful. I had a complicated issue with my luggage and they helped me to sort it out in the best possible way. Amazing service! Furthermore, the entertainment on board is great! Nice movies, nice food, friendly flight attendants, etc. They even offered me a second sandwich =)! I truly loved my experience with KLM."

Pros: "staff was fine"
Cons: "old old plane, very uncomfortable. Tiny bad screen made movies pointless"

Cons: "suitcase didn't turn up, although connection was quite tight"

Cons: "The leg room on the long flight was less than I would have wished and it was particularly bad when the person in front put their seat back. this was a day time flight and it would have been good to have a bit more room to use a laptop."

Cons: "Delay again... seems to be pretty frequent on KLM flights at least on the ones I flew with in the past 4 years... this time it was 3hours wait due to a technical issue... no alternative flight option and we ended up getting a very old plane as a replacement. In addition people at info terminals are disorganized and not kind at all.."

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

Pros: "Everything ran on time."

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. The flight attendants never even asked us if we wanted anything to drink- never! Not even water. They were just too busy serving those who were buying food and drinks on board. For a 4-hour flight?!!! Simply unacceptable."

Cons: "Seats and entertainment"

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

Cons: "No USB power ports by the seats."

Pros: "Was a new aircraft, very clean. M&S food is good (though extra of course)"
Cons: "The new seats are now no different to a no-fills airline, seriously BA, no seat recline option?! 3 times price of Easyjet yet no difference in comfort. No Map display of progress. Shall we call you Beasy jet now then?"

Cons: "The flight information did not show the gate for the flight. We had to ask an employee which gate was being used. Unfortunately, it was a gate that required a transit ride. As a result, many passengers were late in fact, after pushback, the pilot returned to the gate to pick up one very late passenger. Also, the BA gate attendant was very rude. Her imperious attitude was a poor reflection on her employer."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Not only do you now have to buy food and drink, by the back of the plane they’ve always run out (our flight was not even particularly full). Flight was delayed an hour - I’ve taken 4 BA flights in the last 5 days and every one has been delayed by at least one hour. No longer worth the price."

Pros: "British air crews are great"
Cons: "from rome to myc through London. ok fine. but arriving in London gatwick and departing London heathrow? wtf?!? it cost me over $100 to make my "connection". I guess you could say it's my fault for not seeing that but never in my life has anyone sold me a flight with a "connection" that requires changing airports. idk if that's a kayak or BA error but it's completely unexceptable."

Pros: "Entertainment was adequate."
Cons: "The plane was freezing for 11 hours. Flight attendant said it would be adjusted but it never was. We were against a wall and seats did not recline. Very little room."

Pros: "I think people could entertain themselves but to me it is deplorable to not offer at least complementary water. Complementary coffee would be a nice touch too but at least water."

Pros: "It was efficient and on time"
Cons: "British air is not what ir used to be. It is no longer high caliber flying. The attendant were not impeccable a it once were. The plane was not grand as o expected. Just average like any other airline"

Pros: "Great service, good / plentiful food, lots of entertainment options."
Cons: "No outlet / USB to plug in my phone or computer."

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

Pros: "Punctuality Happy demeanor of cabin crew Meal and Wine Service to standard class passengers Safety Video!! :-)"
Cons: "the actual meal was not very good. I would prefer an option of dried fruit and nuts and a big water"

Pros: "Nothing to special comparing with other first class"
Cons: "Boarding process was very late, they made us wait in the cold for 10 min before letting us in the plane. The staff was professional but not too friendly and the place is old. When I purchased the ticket it said it was a airbus A380"

Pros: "Staff are friendly, accomodating for an unaccompanied child with me, upgraded me and helped to support the extra baggage needs"
Cons: "Old, dirty planes with bad enterainment systems and mediocre food and drink offerings. With the price of a ticket more than Emirates, KLM and other airlines, always really suprised the overall crappy hardware, infrastructure on planes etc. When can we get a decent plane to fly the long haul flights. And an actual entertainment system like to competitors?"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seats didn't recline, no entertainment, no beverage or food service. Delayed leaving and landing and the ground crew couldn't find a working jet bridge further delaying the disembarkment. I almost missed my connection despite a 90 minite layover."

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

Cons: "No wifi on a +11hr flight TV Screen looks horrible. Too old. Didn’t even watch any movie on it. got downgraded from First Class to Business Class because the airline oversold first classs. Shouldn’t happen."

Cons: "It took forever for them to serve drinks and we are at the back of the plane I asked for a water and it took forever to get it and she was rude"

Pros: "Flt attendants. Esp the english guy."
Cons: "Once again just some measly pretzels."

Pros: "The services in general."
Cons: "Not of anything that I saw."

Pros: "Extra leg room in premium economy"
Cons: "Service poor relative to global peers, food mediocre, entertainment system totally outdated"

Pros: "nothing"
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"

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

Pros: "Don't usually have a chance to fly BA in the USA. The flight crew were professional, courteous, and very friendly. They ALL looked so polished and well groomed. Some USA carriers should take a look. It makes a difference. Even their donning hats and putting on suit jackets on landing made an impression on me. Thanks British Airways."
Cons: "Nothing Wonderful flight"

Pros: "That BAA have WiFi on the plan and the flight back did not even have USB charger . In new York at at the BAA terminal they only have 30 min worth of wifi"
Cons: "The service . In general it can be better"

Pros: "Food was excellent for an airline, free wine doesn't hurt. Crew was polite."
Cons: "Very cramped seating, seats and blankets looked dated (read: kind of gross)."
