Cons: "Nothing. Keep up the good work"

Pros: "Staff are very polite and helpful (ground staff and in the air)."

Pros: "Yes overall probably the best flight to Chennai from DC"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly"

Pros: "Justfly stoled my money as i booked for seat and paid 30$ And the seat didnt booked I want my money to be returned"

Cons: "I don't understand how this company has a high rating in service. We missed our connection because the plane was delayed and they treated us poorly. How can you have a complimentary lounge for people missing their flight but not allow people in. I guess because we were only economy. When asked could we pay for an upgrade to business class, the attendant responded with "oh, its expensive" I didn't ask how much, I asked if we could. I never felt so insulted. The food was terrible. By the time they got to us, our food was cold and they ran out of the menu item we wanted. I have no intention of flying Qatar again. I will stick with Emirates"

Cons: "Ground crews remain the downfall of this airline. Long line in Doha to re-clear security on international connection FROM USA! Fastidiously weighing and forcing mutiple repacks of carry-on bags even though well under total limit of checked & carry. (Doha agent told me dfferent rules appied for carrry on 2nd plane even though I asked specifically frm original agent who checked me thru to final dest--insisted I check main carry on even though there turned out to be plenty of overhead room on board). Poor coordination of checkin lines, security lanes, and flow of people -- all fixable with a little forethought, engineering, and better utilization of circulation space -- and much clearer communication!"

Exceptionally poor performance by an airline you expect more from."

Cons: "Dear Sir or Madam: My two colleagues and I bought our tickets from BWI to Geneva, via London Heathrow, through Kayak as I have many times in the past. However, the Kiwi.com travel agency did not flag that the ticket from BWI to London Heathrow allowed for one piece of checked luggage, but the ticket from London Heathrow onwards to Geneva did not allow for any checked luggage. Also astonishingly, we had to pass through Customs, reclaim our checked suitcases from the baggage carousel, and check in again through Customs to board the onward flight, both coming and going through London Heathrow. In addition to the extraordinary inconvenience that we could neither transit at London Heathrow to our connecting flight without going through Customs twice and that we could not check our luggage through to our final destination, we also had to foot a higher baggage charge to allow for checking in our suitcases, now that we had arrived in London Heathrow only to discover this that our onward ticket did not cover one piece of checked luggage. Had we known that the seemingly better price posted by Kiwi.com on Kayak’s comparative offerings came at such a high price of inconvenience and additional expense for the luggage, we would have taken our business elsewhere. It was deceptive of Kiwi.com to engage in such practices, even if it disclosed these conditions in fine print (for no one would expect, nor have I ever seen previously in the hundreds of flights I have taken as a Million Miler on United), without flagging this. And similarly, it was irresponsible of Kayak.com to allow this “apples with oranges” comparison on its website. I’m making three more international trips in December, but I’m inclined not to use either Kayak.com and most certainly not Kiwi.com for future airline ticket purchases."

Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "Just wanted a glass of coca cola."

Pros: "The crew was great and made the flight comfortable and easy! They brought drinks as needed, free of charge, movies and headphones were provided, and the flight arrived ahead of schedule in London! A wonderful experience! Would absolutely fly again and was so pleased to find the deal on kayak!!!!"

Pros: "Staff were friendly."
Cons: "Check-in did not include my TSA-Pre or airline frequent flyer membership. Food was stale and inedible."

Cons: "First flight cancelled. Customer service hung up first time. Almost 2 hours on hold to reschedule"

Pros: "The new Dreamliner made for the smoothest, quietest flight I've ever taken."

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

Cons: "Seat space too cramped"

Pros: "Spacious. Great movies. Funny safety instructions."

Pros: "The crew was very polite and friendly, making this 7-hour flight enjoyable."
Cons: "There was nothing I disliked."

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."

Pros: "The food was fine, and there was plenty of it. The movie selection was good."
Cons: "The crew turned the lights out when we took off, then when everyone was asleep they turned them on and served dinner, at like 10-1030 pm... Way too late to be eating. Then they turned the lights off, then on again for drinks, then off then on again for a breakfast snack, then off then on again for more drinks. Just pick one, on or off please."

Cons: "The British airline flight was operated by american airline and someone who handled her bag stole everything. We purchased prior to the flight. 2 pairs of sneakers a gift spoon for our grandson and other items not mentioned. Then they put her bag on another flight which made her wait for 1.5 hours in Madrid for her bag. Your handlers ruined our trip.How can you allow thieves to do this especially with TSA supposedly there monitoring it? I want a claim form sent to me ASAP so I can recover my goods. A notice was not placed inside, stating it was checked."

Pros: "I like everything the service provided by the crew and the airplane"

Cons: "For the second London trip in a row, my return flight to BWI was cancelled. Not weather, not equipment, just cancelled."

Pros: "Entertainment selection was above average, curried chicken dinner was good too!"
Cons: "They lost our suitcase full of outdoor gear (boots, coats, underwear, socks and thermals) days before we head to the inside of the arctic circle on an anniversary trip. Pretty upsetting to say the least"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful."

Cons: "We learned the connecting flight from BWI TO PHL was canceled when we tried to pull boarding passes.This started a five hour panic for our party of four which was a leisure travel nail biter. We lost a day, flew into JFK and had to make other arrangements to avoid canceling our trip."

Pros: "Overall good experience for short flight - entertainment and breakfast not included."

Pros: "We were given a snack & drinks. You checked my 2nd bag free which was FABULOUS so I didn't have to deal with gate checking when you asked for us to do that."
Cons: "Was seated in bulkhead & the media screen wouldn't stay facing me. What a pain. Ended up unable to watch it without holding it in place. Seat cushion was very flat & uncomfortable; head rest of poor design did not allow sleep."

Cons: "Seating was to close"

Pros: "Pleasant helpful staff, comfortable, clean seat, good food."
Cons: "Having to pay TWICE for extra item of luggage!! Some delay with boarding"

Cons: "Flight from London to Baltimore attendant stood in the back talking and laughing ignoring my call button. Waited 20 min before someone came so I could get water for my daughter. Flight attendant who responded was very rude."

Cons: "air stewardess was very rude unecessarily"

Cons: "My flight from BWI-JFK was cancelled due to weather related issues and was rebooked to BWI-MIA-MAD, 5 hours late from my original departure and without providing any meal voucher despite asking from the agent. BWI-MIA flight was delayed due to air traffic clearance from the thunderstorm and almost missed my connection MIA-MAD by few minutes. Upon arrival in MAD, my baggage didn't make the connection and had to wait for 3 days before my baggage arrived"

Pros: "What a different experience in relation to last week!"

Cons: "No direct communication. Really bad"

Pros: "Good food. Beautiful plane. Great stuff. Free beverages of all kinds."

Cons: "There is not enough space to sit. It is insulting to be squeezed into such a small amount of space, particularly on such a long flight."

Pros: "I liked everything! Free drinks, movies on demand on the seat-back screen on the seat in front of you... comfortable seats. I would definitely fly BA again!! (The American Airlines return flight was a bit less desirable in all categories. Comparatively, BA was awesome!)."
Cons: "Not a thing!"

Pros: "Quiet and peaceful."

Pros: "Nothing in particularly"
Cons: "Disorganised boarding, people standing to find a seat, upgrades being handed out on a whim. Meal service poor."

Cons: "Boarding, no gate changes, no flight delays"

Pros: "WiFi was fast, entertainment was very good."
Cons: "Aesthetically the plane was a disaster. Broken tray table in my exit row seat. Poor updates regarding why flight was delayed.

Pros: "Very helpful crew."
Cons: "Too often the video screen I’m given doesn’t charge up and it has to be replaced mid flight. This happened again during this flight when 2 screens didn’t charge and had to be replaced before the movie ended. The crew was helpful, but this problem is annoying."

Cons: "The flight was fine, just be on-time."

Cons: "One crew member was rude, another confused. The grey blazer crew member was friendly"

Pros: "Once we boarded in philly"
Cons: "The amount of time on the ground"

A lot of people missed connections."
