Pros: "Just needed a chance to rest during this long trip and that was possible. Slept well, had a nice meal and arrived ready to go. First trip on Turkish Airlines but will absolutely be back. Crew was great!"
Cons: "The Attention is not as good as it was 4 years ago, the food terrible. And last but not least many luggage didn’t arrived."
Pros: "Never flown TK before and was satisfied. Very good crew, acceptable entertainment, good food."
Cons: "Not their fault but 14-hour flights are exhausting."

Pros: "This Airline is one of my favourite."
Cons: "Good service and decent planes.Hardly any delays."
Pros: "MOST OF THE MEALS ARE VERY GOOD EXCEPT PASTA DISHES."

Cons: "Options for vegetarians were not really good."
Cons: "They made us wait for 2 hours out in the open on a winter night. They wouldn't let us in the terminal. It was outrageous. Everyone was extremely rude."
Cons: "A bit disorganized in the beginning, but much better later on"
Pros: "My flight from Budapest to Istanbul was delayed by weather and heavy flight traffic in Istanbul. At booking time, I had only a 1 hour layover, which I commonly NEVER schedule. Upon arrival at the IST terminal gate, I exited quickly and was met at the end of the runway by a Turkish Airlines customer service rep, permitting me to transit directly to the transit lounge, rather than sending me back through security yet again. As she looked at my boarding pass for the next flight, she knew who I was and she sent me directly to the proper gate for my next flight. Turkish Airlines, you ROCK! (My bag even made the connection!)"
Pros: "First leg (Mia to Instanbul) crew was excellent!"

Pros: "The entertainment and food was good."
Cons: "Delayed for almost 2 hours before boarding; and this problem of no USB to charge phones from Abuja to Istanbul is a frequent problem, old fashioned seat and aircraft. Some of the air hostess were mean and hoarding foods.Nigerians patronize Turkish Airlines a lot. Turkish Airlines need to improve better and treat customers right."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The issue of excess baggage. Would appreciate to buy on line before my flight so that I know how much to carry and also that I am covered before leaving home. Payment at the airport may be too costly as well as unreasonable. It's like a penalty for having excess luggage. This is the reason I prefer flying with EMIRATES because they afford me to but pay fir excess luggage before my departure. Planning ahead is key"
Cons: "Crew was. It helpful at all. They created more confusion and frustration. I spend 24 hours calling and talking to them in order to rebook the flight. Worst experience ever"

Cons: "Boarding process was a zoo. Notificationso on loud speaker every 5 minutes waking you up"
Pros: "Short flight-everything fine. Great plane."
Cons: "Having to pay for internet if you want to use it. The way Israelis queue at the airport, leaving no room between you and them...too much pressure. Strange 'breakfast"."
Cons: "Food: they gave you a menu so you can pick up an option (by half way through lunch service they run out of one of the options) They also didn't provide enough water, it's a transatlantic flight! Few options for beverages. Boarding: messy. You have a seating section for a reason (besides pricing). Also connecting flights from IST to the US are horrible. Four point checks and manual screening."
Pros: "Information was given on time regarding schedule. The flight itself was good, and in flight crew were attentive and provided you with enough attention"
Cons: "food could be a bit better. Scrambled eggs were too undercooked and the kofte was very dry."
Cons: "Very bad customer service It will be my very last flight with them"
Pros: "Food is good; service is good. Boarding times were later than expected and left late but didn't arrive lat. Entertainment options were good"
Cons: "more food options would be good; also include decaf coffee or green tea as options"
Pros: "Outstanding service Excellent food Adequate entertainment Seat recline was good for economy"
Cons: "For a long flight (8+ hours) legroom on this Airbus was quite cramped Again poor boarding announcements resulted in very chaotic boarding process"
Pros: "Crew was excellent needs more room in front of the chairs specially when you are on a plane for 10 hours"
Cons: "Too tide in front of the chairs"
Pros: "I eventually arrived at the destination."
Cons: "Difficult to communicate with cabin crew due to lack of English. Flight was delayed by 1 hour. General atmosphere on plane was chaotic I think due to the small plane and length of flight as large numbers of people needed to use toilets."
Pros: "Not trying to be flattering here but it really is a good airline."
Cons: "I was supposed to be given two boarding passes through my check-in but I was given only one. This caused a lot of confusion on the Istanbul Airport. The staff there we unbelievably rude. They caused two passengers (on separate occasions) to miss their flight right in front of my eyes due to no apparent reason. They plainly refused to cooperate with passengers."
Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"
Cons: "The crew skipped our aisle whilst delivering the toiletry bags, some announcements were made purely in Turkish without regard to English passengers. The boarding gate from Istanbul was opened much later than the advertised times."
Cons: "Old plane"
Pros: "Crew, Food, Movies, Comfort!! I loved this trip with Turkish Airlines."
Pros: "excellent food, service"
Pros: "We were hesitant about flying Turkish Airlines. In the past they have had bad reviews and there had just been the terrorist bombing at the airport. But the flights to Croatia were cheap so we bought. The food was great and plentiful. Staff were very polite. We had a night flight to Istanbul and both my wife an I were able to stretch out in empty middle rows seats and sleep. I would definitely fly them again. They are very underrated."
Cons: "On the flight back our seats did not recline."
Pros: "Muy buena aerolínea. Todo estuvo bien. 100% recomendada."
Pros: "The overall experience was good but small gestures by crew can improve the same significantly."
Cons: "Crew slow to respond or non responsive even for a glass of water."
Pros: "We liked the cost of airfare and flight times convenient. We also like the onboard TV and wifi."

Pros: "Friendly crew excellent food"
Pros: "We were the only customers in business class, which was nice. Lots of attention from the crew, and food was good."
Cons: "Ummm, THAT was "business class"? Same seats as economy, with middle seat blocked off. Limited recline, no entertainment, no comfort seats. Nice meal, nice drinks, nice service...but I'm a little stunned that a European airline would call this kind of seating "business class". Only thing that separated it from economy class was a curtain, and middle seats blocked off."
Cons: "I could not check in because the system cannot link my flight legs and as such it considered that I’m going to Europe although I’m just transiting in Europe. So it required a visa which I don’t have."
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight"
Cons: "Food and drinks served late"
Pros: "Yes super crew and super seat. ( next to empty seat) Nice new plane"
Cons: "This one couldn’t have been better. Plenty of food snacks and drinks"
Pros: "Reliable airline."
Cons: "Overly strict on luggage size and weight. I’m talking about 0.1 kg difference. I was attempted twice to check the only small case I have, which is an exact fit to Lufthansa standard. Very annoying. Won’t fly LH again. British Airways is a lot better."
Pros: "Customer service is excellent"
Cons: "At SFO customer service with extra charge could not able to explain the amount of extra charges and not quiet professional"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The proximity of the arriving and departing gates"
Pros: "crew onboard and food/entertaiment."
Cons: "could do without the delays. transit time was reduced to less than an hour in Frankfurt because flight to Frankfurt was delayed by 45 mins. it is becoming very stressful to transit in FRA every time."
Pros: "Very nice new clean airplane (beautiful), excellent crew"
Cons: "Lufthansa may consider reworking the boarding area"
Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."
Pros: "The boarding was simple and easy. The crew was polite."
Cons: "The entertainment touchscreen is right in the headrest and everytine the person behind me wanted to do anything I could feel it. It was very irritating especially when I was able to fall asleep."
Pros: "What more can you expect for economy travel?"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Cons: "Freezing cold temperature Too small seats Food dropped on travel partner Poor choices of food and snacks Gone down since last time years ago"

Cons: "I get Emergency to be sick and be in hospital and the request company for exchange my fly back from Slovakia back to my country USA and they declined my refund or exchange tickets even if I have doctors statement being in the hospital they’re rude and mean and decline make any changes for me"
Cons: "Shortness of the staff at the counter when checking in. We couldn’t preprint our boarding passes and the staff was inconsiderate when we tried to explain why"
Pros: "The ease & comfort provided"
Cons: "The food was ok. I didn’t sleep on my 10 hour flight because there was an infant in front of me who screamed most of the flight. It’s time to create a “Family Area” for those fling with small children. It became a burden in everyone in the vicinity. Not what I paid for."
Pros: "Gate and schedule alert"
Pros: "The service was outstanding!"
Cons: "Someone stole my phone charger :("
Pros: "Having a very difficult time thinking of something I like about the whole service. Maybe the checking in process was a little bit smoother at San Diego compared to other airports."
Cons: "As many of you know, Frankfurt/San Diego is a new service offered by Lufthansa. It touts direct flights to and from Europe. It’s main advertising draw was connection to the east. Many of their connecting flights at Frankfurt are scheduled within an hour of arrival. This possess a high risk of missing your connecting flight. I experienced this personally as a major number of my fellow travelers missed their connecting flights. Though Frankfurt has good directions, transfers take a long time due to multiple security checks and due to the size of the Airport. LAYOVER OF AT LEAST TWO HOURS WOULD BE BEST. Anything less, you risk missing your flight. I was personally selected TWICE for ‘random check’ for the same flight! Not sure how that can happen! The flight itself is long and arduous. the economy seats are small, cramped and don’t recline much at all. The entertainment selection was very limited. The TV touch screen barely worked. The food was tasteless and service was not much better. I have a hard time sleeping on flights with such bad seats but we had air hostess who kept talking the whole flight and that did not help with resting my eyes. I highly suggest taking a different airline through LAX. I personally feel like driving to LA and taking a flight there would be the wise move."
Pros: "The food was very good"
Cons: "Water was spilled on me by flight attendant. Luggage was left in Frankfort. Did not have clothes or medications, or daily necessities. Must wait 1 1/2 days to get luggage"
Pros: "Service , on time"
Pros: "Online check in worked well through app."
Cons: "If you leave something on the plane, don't expect for it to be handed in. My iPad disappeared on the flight. The woman at the boarding gate in Bham kept shouting at everyone, she was really rude, both flights were late taking off."
Pros: "Nothing really. It was an overall terrible flight."
Cons: "The crew was so bad. When asked for my special meal 2.5 hrs into the flight, they said you haven’t ordered any, which in fact I had a month before my flight. The crew member instead insisted that ”you should've brought your own food” not once but twice. No courtesy nothing. I was super disappointed. I fly a lot and this was hands down my worst flight. Also, the aircraft and seats were terribly uncomfortable (Boeing 747-8 Economy). Boarding took forever as well. Overall a very shocking experience from a very experienced airline otherwise."
Pros: "The captain and others great flight"
Cons: "I ask for more food since portions are small , came back in 15 min and said no"
Pros: "It got me to my destination safely."
Cons: "The seats are way too close together for such a long flight. I fought off a panic attack for much of the trip. It was suffocating. I should not be able to give the person in front of me a head massage. The personal space humans should have was horribly invaded. I'm a 62 year old woman who's in good shape but even for me it was an act of gymnastics to get in and out of my seat. On my flight to Europe on the 13th with your airline our section of the plane did not have working monitors so it was like watching paint dry for 11 hours. So boring!"
Pros: "Regardless the delay, the company feed us with sandwich and snacks to pass the time"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was that I wanted to watch the The Boss baby movie and it was unavailable. All other movies were ok"
Pros: "I LOVED the Crew. Exceptional! Polite, accommodating, kind, friendly. Just wonderful. The food was pretty good too! The entertainment was great. I loved that the toilets were in a separate area downstairs! The flight was overall pretty comfortable. The cabin temperature was also great, not the freezing temperature found on American planes. Thank you LUFTHANSA!!!"
Cons: "The flight was late boarding and late arriving in Munich. I had a connecting flight to make and that was a harrowing experience. I had no precedence offers the other passengers in deplaning. I was given no help in making my connecting flight. I had to queue up for border control. I had to go up and down numerous escalators. I was stopped by a policeman asking for papers which I had already given to border control. I had to take a train and change terminals. My connecting flight was departing from the farthest gate possible in the terminal. I was running the entire time, and I barely made it. Had I not been running, I would have missed my connection."
Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"
Pros: "free upgrade to business class :)"
Cons: "The cabin got a little hot during the night and made it hard to be comfortable. Also, the seats lean pretty far back so I had little room in front of me when the person sitting in front of me leaned their seat all the way back."
Pros: "THE FLIGHT LEFT ON TIME."
Cons: "LUGGAGE IS LOST. THE FOODS WAS NOT VERY GOOD."
Cons: "Not a thing"
Cons: "No checjed in luggage allowed - i did not know that when i bought it!"
Cons: "Entertainment center was not working properly. Had to be rebooted twice."
Pros: "We often fly on Lufthansa and highly recommend it!"
Cons: "Connecting flight to MUC was cancelled without notification, this was corrected too late to get me a different flight from ATH to MUC. So then I had to miss MUC to LAX. Instead i was transferred to an Airfrance flight 12 hours later."
Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"
Pros: "Munich airport is convenient and boarding went smoothly"
Cons: "This was an SAA plane, not Lufthansa. I have only had excellent service on Lufthansa. This flight again did not have a functioning entertainment system. I asked for this to be addressed and the SAA crew ignored the request and in the morning looked surprised to find out that several of the TV monitors had not worked at anytime on the flight. Not impressed."
Pros: "Great service, good food, plenty of (and good selection) beverages. This is the way flying used to be and it is awesome on Lufthansa and I was only flying regular coach. Also really good music/movie system with plenty of great choices, I watched some very good movies and the system works very well."
Cons: "Only downside is that despite being pretty techie I could not get the wifi to work and I tried three browsers and every bit of advice in the Magazine on board."
Pros: "Boarding was easy"
Cons: "Plane was late and I almost missed my connection. My suitcase didn't follow."
Pros: "The Frankfurt-Boston flight seat was comfortable & food was very good as well as the air hostess in charge was excellent & very cordial."
Cons: "Entertaintainmemt movies"
Pros: "Good service on board"
Cons: "Flight was delayed but announcements were not prompt about letting us know."
Pros: "Very good cotimer service"
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable. Plane interior was in new condition, including electronic window shade tinting."
Cons: "Staff was not particularly warm or attentive. Was never offered more to drink, and after asking for more wine was ignored."
Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."
Pros: "The crews were pretty great!"
Cons: "The regulating of the temperature."
Pros: "the crew was wonderful, we got a nice Wrap and water, wine or coffee for free, not all airlines serve it anymore, we were on time and I got whatsapp message with updates of the flight"
Pros: "Crew helpful. Food good."
Cons: "Better range of movies please"
Cons: "Travelled business class and was ace experience"
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seating with enough leg room."
Cons: "Provide dinner before getting to joburg, instead of a snack. Flight arrives late so dinner would be appreciated"
Cons: "Flight 2 hours delayed, started boarding but had to wait on line 10 more minutes on boarding ramp for plane door to be opened, upon landing in Dublin had to wait on tarmac for anther 15 minutes for stairs to arrive and be connected to airplane. Then had to wait another hour for checked luggage...."
Cons: "Boarding was very slow."
Cons: "Delays, took my hand luggage into the hold,"
Cons: "Dozens of high school students screaming and climbing onto seats, crew did not intervene."
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: "KLM was a great experience compared to Airitalia. The food was good, the flight attendants were very helpful."
Pros: "Seat space a bit tight . I should have upgraded to more leg room . Next time!"
Pros: "Very pleased with KLM - efficiency all round and especially the baggage handling at Schipol swhere I had 20 minutes to transfer and my baggage came back with me to the UK which is no mean feat given the hustle and bustle of such a large airport"
Cons: "No downsides at all"
Pros: "Cabin Crews was extremely good and hospital. Transfer point staff buggy / wheal Chair was good and second to none."
Cons: "Transfer point needs upgrade."
Cons: "Faultless handling of weather delay, causing missed connection and flight transfer. A well oiled machine, thank you."
Pros: "Once aboard the plane, all went well and I experienced excellent service from the cabin attendants."
Cons: "The flight was delayed (again!) for some 40 minutes and I was worried that I would miss my connection flight in Atlanata. Fortunately the pilot made up for the delay (probably costing the airline thousands in fuel). It seems these days that every KLM flight I take is delayed. This stretch goes back to 2015! Yet KLM prides itself as being punctual. Not the KLM that I have been flying!"
Pros: "Service was great as usual. Food was very good and entertainment options were great so you won't have to be bored throughout the trip."
Pros: "The flight started with a visit in the recently renovated KLM crown lounge in Amsterdam airport. I liked the various seating options and of course the upstairs bar. The service on board was attentive and efficient, the food options I really liked (especially the Chinese dish) but also the little touches like the nuts & gouda cheese which were served in small porcelain bowls. The seat itself was very comfortable when sitting and the structure gives a lot of privacy. However for couples or friends travelling it's a bit cumbersome to have a conversation even when sitting in seats next to each other. Overall my expectations were fulfilled."
Cons: "This seat is not ideal for sleeping for taller persons (I'm 185cm tall) as the space to put the feet is very narrow and it's uncomfortable when lying on the back (as one cannot put them in the natural resting position). Cabin temperature could have been a bit lower for my taste. Crew needs better training with regards to transfer procedure in Chengdu."
Pros: "Good comfortable seat with extra leg room. Pleasant crew."
Pros: "The constant smile conferred by flight attendants through the entire flight."
Cons: "The boarding was a bit disorderly. Lanes for zones 3 and 4 were not clearly indicated."
Pros: "Food was excellent, frequent and filling"
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable compared to my prior leg of the journey. Unfortunately the bathrooms were not clean, I understand that it's not the sole responsibility of the crew and passengers need to be mindful too."
Pros: "Friendly in-flight personell"
Cons: "Approx. 1 hour delay, which was not the airline's fault (construction on runways)"
Pros: "Good Experience"
Cons: "Nothing much"
Pros: "Booked extra room seat which gave me good room for seating"
Pros: "Decent seat size. Sorta slept the whole flight."
Cons: "Bag was lost"
Pros: "Very friendly staff"
Pros: "Helpful and smiling cabin crew."
Pros: "The cabin crew were good. They explained what the arrangements were for the delayed flight connections"
Cons: "The plane wasn't refueled and so was not ready for take off once the passengers were loaded. The plane had a technical problem when it tried the first take off and so it had to be abandoned. This was alarming.."
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: "Pretty basic one hour flight so there's not much to complain about or praise about. I got some sleep which was good."
Cons: "The crew had their general Dutch aloofness on form. Chatted to one of the stewardesses in Dutch up until she saw I had a British passport then she decided she could only speak English to me."
Pros: "787 is a great airplane. The 3-3-3 seat configuration leaves enough seat width to be just comfortable in coach."
Pros: "Good efficient flight crew friendly and helpful"
Pros: "The flight was very good, specially considering it was a daylight one. Staff was friendly and servicial. Tue food was above the industry's average."
Pros: "quick and relaxed"
Cons: "OLD OLD plane with hard seats and tiny screens"
Pros: "Everything. Staff incredible."
Pros: "The very dirty plane was cleaned at Dar-es-salaam and became less dirty. The pilot kept us updated periodically through the flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "The plane was very dirty when we landed in Dar-es-salaam. The plane did get cleaned a little bit in Dar-es-salaam however I was still missing a pillow and blanket which I had to actively seek out. Seating was not very comfortable as there was a box attached to the leg of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to keep my feet at an uncomfortable angle through the long flight. I did not enjoy the food."
Pros: "Everything - Checkin, crew, food, entertainment"
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "Quick (relatively) flight."
Cons: "Skinniest seat ever. Couldn't even lean back. I now have hunchback."
Pros: "The staff and crew"
Pros: "Atmosphere, crew were very professional and friendly"
Cons: "Seats were a little too narrow, and quite uncomfortable when a broad shouldered person is sitting next to you"
Cons: "I requested low fat meals. The first one, was OK. But they forgot my request for the second one."
Pros: "The service, entertainment, food, the crew, the aircraft were excellent."
Cons: "They put us in a Transavia plane."
Pros: "Flight unpleasant. Ground staff in Marseiile great but gate crew didn't control carry on baggage and many of us could not use overhead bins because of passengers who stowed more than one and often oversized suitcases above, so we and many others had to place carry on suitcases under seat. Attendant on plane totally unhelpful and could have rearranged a few bags to make room but preferred to stay in back of plane and talk. To be fair, rest of flight was pleasant although late due in part to boarding issues."
Cons: "Carry on baggage issues and storage on plane. One aloof and unhelpful member of flight crew."
Pros: "El entretenimiento"
Cons: "Demasiadas mascotas sin posibilidad de descanso. Un gato en ej asiento del frente que no dejó de hacer ruido y dos asientos atrás un pero en la misma situación. Debería tomar más medidas para el viaje de mascotas"
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."
Pros: "The crew was astounding"
Cons: "Entertainment system was not working on all seats"
Cons: "This airline charges for everything, and after you pay once, they try to charge you again, and again, and again (four different people tried to charge me 4 different times for my two checked bags). And they lost the record of my payment, so I had to show 4 times the Amex receipt showing that I had paid before. It took 45 minutes and 4 non receptive agents for me to get my luggage checked. British Airways is significantly better."
Pros: "The crew and the food were great!"
Cons: "The seats weren’t very comfortable. You could tell the plane was a little dated. There was no WiFi and nowhere to charge your devices."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "1-2 +cms leg space"
Cons: "I dint like the way you guys sold me the tickets with only one bag to check in with when I went to the airport I’ve got to pay 58 pounds extra I was not happy with you guys so next time you have to tell your customers before they buy the tickets that’ it’s one bag check"
Cons: "Kayak updated me that my flight would be late. It wasn't. Missed it had to pay $700"
Pros: "Not much, seats are super uncomfortable"
Cons: "Better code sharing with KLM"
Cons: "Our request for vegetarian meals got lost after a glight was cancelled."
Cons: "They made me check my carryon rolly which is allowed on every other plane in the world, which meant going all the way back into a chaos of hundreds of people to check in. Because I had a connecting flight to New York in London, the check in caused many problems...and everything inside soaking wet"
Pros: "It was very comfortable and pleasant."
Cons: "Could be a little better the service, the dinner was late"
Cons: "I’m not sure that short-hop flights should serve solid food. The quality invariably disappoints. Otherwise, all is good with this flight."

Cons: "Boarding was a little confusing"
Pros: "Crew great."
Pros: "Arrived on time."
Cons: "Overhead luggage storage jammed with luggage belonging to someone who was sitting far behind my seat."

Cons: "Nothing...all was wonderful"
Pros: "Service and crew are great"

Cons: "Baggage took a while to reach baggage claim but maybe a bit impatient after a long day"
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."
Cons: "My entire travel experience became extremely rushed and chaotic due to my flight being canceled and me being alerted -LESS THAN AN HOUR BEFORE IT TOOK OFF! This is unacceptable."
Pros: "Their evacution video is interesting"
Cons: "The aircraft is a bit old and somehow the flight crew didn’t offer me the full menu as the menu describe. First time encounter that in a business class"
Pros: "If the flight would have leave in time we would receive our luggage in time"
Pros: "The free glass of red wine when the plane finally took off."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. We were told that it was just a half an hour delay by the man that was informing us of the delay and then we were then told by a woman that it was going to be over an hour. We weren’t told any specifics of why the plane was delayed, other than: “ the engineers are looking at the issue now”. We received messages saying that the flight was cancelled but then we were told to ignore that. We were told that we would have an update every 10-15 minutes but by the time we had the next update was 1 hours later, we were told that the plane will depart at 15:50- which we did. But we also sat on the plane for an extra 2 hours or maybe even more (couldn’t bare watching the time at this point) because the man that was supposed to push the plane backwards in order to reverse the plane didn’t turn up so we then had to wait for all of the other planes to take off before we could. Eventually the plane set off at 18:20 and I got in France 19:30-20:00 ish?"
Pros: "We got to the desk to check in and there was one person being served in front of us. He finished with him, turned and left the area through the dooor. No one came to help us for 15 minutes. Then they came out to answer the phone and said we were 10 minutes past the cut off and we could not fly."
Cons: "Staff just walked away while we were in line, the rudeness and mean attitude, they blamed us for being too late after ignoring us and made us late, they didn't offer an alternative flight until we asked. Overall, horrible customer service. Never been treated so rudely by people in the airlines industry in my entire 42 years of flying!"
Pros: "The cabin crew was very good!"
Cons: "The economy premium seats are very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Standard on most parts with pleasant staff"
Cons: "Flight was 1/2hr with poor pre-flight communication on the topic. Food wise, the chocolate cookie was better than nothing...but a little savory snack would have been nice."
Pros: "Offering a drink on such a short flight is appreciated albeit unusual these days. Crew was very professional and friendly."
Pros: "Speed, professionalism"
Pros: "Hospitality of the flight attendants"
Cons: "Toilets could hv been cleaned more often"
Pros: "The check in process was much better in the CFG airport than SFO. Very organized."
Cons: "The food was mediocre on this flight. The seats also are surprisingly uncomfortable."
Pros: "No delays, service with a smile"
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Cons: "I think I caught a stomach bug on one of the 3 legs of this route. More likely on last 2, i.e. Mumbai to RDU, as I fell sick almost 10-12 hrs after my last flight meal."
Pros: "There was enough leg room"
Cons: "The food was not very nice and the aircraft was really cold."

Cons: "Meal choice missing kosher non-gluten combination."
Pros: "Crew are efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Very small plane."
Pros: "It was a fine flight"
Cons: "no specific feedback"
Cons: "Airport handling is catastrophic. A lost bagage created the twins to be locked. Half an hour and we could not enter. Delays and huge mess in front of police checkpoint. No announcement and no care for passengers approaching departure time. And to top it all no announcement of any delays. Had to cheat my way through the priority line and run a sprint through security and beyond. Reached the gate to note that there was a delay of 5 minutes.... Grrrr"
Pros: "Boarded 45 minutes late, and then sat in the plane for another two hours before take off due to a problem with the lie computer. Would have been better to spend that time in the terminal and given credits to buy food, etc. My seat was a regular seat (non exit) and the seat did not recline properly, the USB drive was broken, overall the plane felt unmaintained. The crew was friendly and food was good but I felt not enough was done to accommodate the extra hours we had to wait on the plane."
Cons: "My entertainment system did not work for the whole 8 hours. Seats were uncomfortable. The lights above the seats broken."
Pros: "The plane is roomy and bright"
Pros: "I liked their seats, I had enough space to get comfortable flying internationally for 14 hours."
Cons: "Just wish they served water a couple times more, because when you're in the plane for the whole day, 2-3 little cups isn't enough."
Pros: "Same as above, the crew was very friendly and the food was great."
Cons: "Seating was cramped and uncomfortable for a tall person."
Pros: "No and no."
Cons: "Very crowded in.club class. Way lower standard for business class as compared to the other airlines."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and everything was perfectly on time!"
Cons: "4 hs delay"
Pros: "The flight was on time and landed early"
Cons: "The bags could have come out earlier and the food could be better"
Cons: "I made a mistake in my daughter's surname while booking online, BA refused ro change it at check-in and forced me to buy a new ticket for her."
Pros: "Leg room fantastic"
Pros: "The crew were very attentive and there was a large variety of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "I am not a heavy set guy but the seats were unreasonably close to each other, this meant that when you eat a meal your elbows push into your sides making it hard to bring food to your mouth."
Cons: "Direct flights to and from South Africa to USA not via Middle East"
Cons: "Very narrow seats"
Pros: "The crew, the food and the smooth journey."
Cons: "Seating is a big problem. I am only 192 cm tall and cannot really fit my legs into the space. Have them out in the corridor"
Pros: "That the flight was on time."
Cons: "not applicable."
Cons: "Seat was broken. Reclines without requesting. Tray also needs attention. Seat 15C"
Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "Nothing. Pretty good for a short trip."
Cons: "Better business class seats"
Cons: "Delayed, twice!"
Pros: "New Years flight... very special. Great staff and grear entertainment on board"
Cons: "The flight data was not showing... could have been interesting especially on a New Years flight"
Pros: "This was a charter by BA. Airbus A320 with amazing legroom. Was slightly annoyed by them not having coffee ( to wake me up for the drive home) but I suppose I get why they weren’t serving hot beverages."
Cons: "The beverages thing above."
Cons: "Don’t like the business class seating configuration. The entertainment system played up and only worked in half the cabin. They tried to fix it without success"
Cons: "Charged airport bag checking price even thought I had checked in on line for half the baggage check in fees. Added $120 to the fare"
Pros: "The A380 is roomy with large overhead bins. Its quiet and smooth. Flight was on time!!"
Cons: "It was impossible to select a seat in advance. I could not even get to seat selection at online checkin. It was very frustrating. When I went to BA in London and Los Angeles they said it was responsibility of AA and when I went to AA in London & Los Angeles they referred me back to BA. Why can I not choose seats like on other airlines????"
Pros: "BA in South Africa run a clean efficient airline. Planes are new crew well trained and food is good."
Cons: "Preseating totally random no matter your status. Booked state of my choice well in advance and was presented at the back of the plane on check-in"
Pros: "Speedy and friendly service from crew"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Not their fault; French traffic control strike"
Pros: "I liked that we landed 30 minutes in advance for both flights to and back, compared to the other parallel flight via SAA which was delayed 2 hours when we arrived back."
Cons: "I didn't like the cheese roll I asked for as the whole roll and cheese was literally stuck to the bottom and parts of the bottom of the roll were mushy. The staff were professional but lacked personality and seemed a little hollow."
Pros: "I liked the seats that I got. Staff were friendly and it was a comfortable flight overall."
Cons: "There wasn't enough drinks (water etc) coming around after meals."
Pros: "Wonderful flight attendants. Flight was on time."
Cons: "2 cups of hot tea-norhing else- cost 4 pounds!"
Pros: "Food was tasty"
Cons: "Was delayed"
Cons: "no free food in a 2h flight??!! thia is a low xoat airline standard!!"
Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding."
Cons: "The way that the crew (both in economy on right of plane) spoke to, and handled sensitive situations with several of the passengers in a loud and rather rude manner. This is not the British way that I have been accustomed to on previous BA flights, and is rather upsetting. The crew were very abrupt in general, and did not have that seasoned and polite demeanor which I expect from BA."
Pros: "BA moved me on to the Kulula flight without any fuss and gave me a meal voucher."
Cons: "I got to the airport to find that my 19:15 flight had been delayed to 22:15. I hadn't received any notification from BA and still do not know the reason for the delay. The only other option available was for BA to put us on the 20:20 Kulula flight to Lanseria and then shuttle us from Lanseria to OR Tambo. It really is not pleasant to get back home so late on a week night and not even be given any warning or any reason for the huge delay."
Pros: "Crew were excellent. Very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Boxes under the seat in front took up legroom (but it did ensure good entertainment options). Could have offered some more drinks."
Pros: "All the normal stuff of flying domestic."
Cons: "The way that my brand new suitcase was damaged on the flight and BA just said that handles are excluded from bag damage. Thus, they can do what ever they want with your bag's handles, manhandle it and not take any responsibility. My suitcase was clearly damaged by the way it was handled since i booked it in till i received it again and they just said sorry...there is nothing we can do for you!!! Now that is is poor customer service."
Pros: "I have physical limitations and required assistance stowing overhead luggage and help getting out of seat. Crew were terrific. Wheelchair assistance also great. Travels on my own."
Pros: "The flight was very good; however, two hours is barely enough time to make the transfer from Terminal 3 to Terminal 5 znd pass through security. The short transfer time creates unnecessary stress."
Pros: "Webjet made my trip a nightmare!! I will never deal with webjet again!!!"
Cons: "Webjet cause me so many headaches, why do you use them!! You have lost a good customer if I have to use them again!!"
Cons: "Using stairs to de-plane"
Pros: "Made up for time due to a big tail wind"
Cons: "Took off late and had to wait 45 minutes for luggage"
Pros: "Flight was on time,actually ahead of time."
Cons: "Aircon was not efficient. Very hot in the plane."
Pros: "The space on the A380 is nice, comfortable seats, and the crew was very considerate"
Cons: "No between meals drinks (like water, etc.) or snacks left out on this 11 hour flight. The seats are still a bit close together... for the comfort of a long legged man behind me, I was not really able to recline my chair at all."
Pros: "Aside from the typically narrow seats, the service included all the hallmarks of higher-tier service, such as hot towels, cloth napkins, a good meal, and so on. The crew was attentive, as well."
Cons: "The airplane was really old. The screens wouldn't start for a really long time. Very, very few options for movies and the screen and sound had terrible quality. Food was not really good."
Pros: "Staff was extremely friendly"
Cons: "Seats were too close and comfort was hard for the long flights. I wish premium economy was better explained to one world partners prior to booking so there would be access to better seats."
Cons: "$100 just to choose a seat ? $100 for a 2nd bag? A Kellogg's bar for breakfast? Shame on them."
Pros: "Quick lines."
Cons: "I had two reservations that I had linked and even though there was ample time they wouldn't forward my luggage to my next flight, because I booked them at different times."
Cons: "Took forever to serve cold drinks and food. Said we were going to have a short flight due to tail wind so they would not serve hot drinks. Mean while we landed at the expected time of arrival."
Pros: "As ever, BA Flight attendants are courteous and approachable - consistently one of the best adverts fort the airline."
Cons: "Poor quality of service and courtesy provided by outsourced ground handling providers"
Cons: "flight was cancelled and they abandoned us"
Pros: "Great food. Ground staff were very accommodating."
Cons: "Flight crew attitude. Cramped seating."
Pros: "Bought food before boarding..."
Cons: "Have to buy food...No more drinks and nacks"
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."
