Cons: "No European movies in English at all, very disappointing for someone who is not into latest Hollywood ( silly) movies and doesn’t want to watch Bollywood or Chinese ones(( The “ dinner” food was barely edible, both from Singapore to Doha and from Copenhagen to Doha."
Pros: "The plane had everything I could want."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the plane was late, prompting me to miss my connecting flight. These things happen, I understand, but most upsetting was the fact that Qatar Airways provided very little information to those of us missing our flights. While on the plane, when those of us with short layovers mentioned that we may be late, we were told "you'll be fine - they hold the planes for a bit." When we deboarded the plane from New York, we ere wrangled into groups depending on our destinations. Many of us assumed that we were going to be taken to our next flights as we had been told they would be waiting for us. The airline rep in charge of my group refused to tell us any information, however, only admitting after we got confrontational with her that we had missed our flights. She then offered no information about what would happen to us, telling us we'd find out when we got to the rebooking counter. Very unprofessional. I was told that I would have to wait for another 24 hours for the next flight, necessitating that I would spend the night in Qatar. I was put up in a hotel that was decent, but again that offered very little in terms of customer service. We were given an $80 meal allowance, but despite me not using it, I was nickeled and dimed in other aspects to where I ended up paying $20 to help reschedule a flight that I had missed in my destination country. The whole ordeal was a nightmare and mostly due to poor communication and very cold, almost robotic interactions with the QA staff on the ground in Doha."
Pros: "I enjoyed my flight,it was a smooth trip from Doha to Manila, the Cabin Crew received adequate training on taking care of people, as a professional nurse who is use to taking care of others ,I see someone else looking after me and I really appreciate their efforts. Shortly before we landed at Manila, we were informed that in order to meet international flight rules and regulations that insecticide will be sprayed we were advised to cover our nose,as a medical personnel I see it not good cos it can trigger an Asthmatic attack in a known asthmatic patient ,it was a lovely journey"

Cons: "My flight was delayed almksr 3 hours...nothing more. It's very frustrating because the problem could have been avoided if they were more careful but oh well.

Pros: "Check-in , immigration and security experience at Dubai was very efficient via the business class terminal."
Cons: "Old business class arrangement for this route seems very outdated conpared compared to the newer fleet; was not worth the extra upgrade fee."

Pros: "Your airline is always striving to be ahead of the game. You are ON TIME, friendly and efficient. If you fly where I need to go I will fly Emirats!!!"
Pros: "The airline still runs like a well-oiled machine. Everything is efficient and staff are courteous. Flights are on time and reliable. DXB airport is easy to navigate. New on-board headphones design is an improvement."
Cons: "Cost saving cuts are evident around every corner. No more night mask, flight socks and toothbrush. No more hot lemon towel upon boarding (only towards end of flight). Food tray is smaller and more compact than before, turns Dinner into a game of Tetris (although, not a fun 'game'). Flights aboard A380 are much more comfortable than in Boeing 777."
Cons: "Screen was black and white most of flight"
Pros: "A380 is great, roomy even for coach. Food is great as always."
Cons: "While most flight attendants are decent, a few are just not that great...making loud noises at the attendants compartments and chatting around while flyers are all sleeping, kick around garbages which makes loud noises too. Also the TV screen is a little hard to pull up at the front role."

Pros: "Food, comfort, wifi, entertainment."

Pros: "Sleeping accommodations, storage, crew attentiveness in business class was outstanding. 5he business lounge in Istanbul was the best ever. Great airline."
Pros: "The food and the entertainment was excellent!"
Cons: "There was no boarding announcement. I was given a boarding zone for no reason; boarding was a free for all. Our flight was delayed by almost an hour. We sat on the plane, by the gate, while the crew called the Istanbul Flight Control to figure out when our plane could arrive. This flight had been scheduled for weeks; I would think they could plan the arrival time to be the ACTUAL arrival time."
Cons: "The ONLY thing I hate about Turkish Airlines is the necessity to go through security in Istanbul when you're in transit on an international flight. Not only do you have to go through security again - with the serious chance of missing a connection - but if it's a flight to the USA, there is serious additional security at the gate. Surely this is enough."
Pros: "Excellent food"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic"
Pros: "Super service clean nice airplane ✈️ departing arriving on time"
Cons: "After bus arrived at steps kept on it 20 mins. 2 more buses arrived in this time. Still wait. Then let out all at once. Massive queues to board. Poeple not dressed for this. Poor babies crying Maybe 15 mins waiting in 2am cold on tarmac."

Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Super friendly - and fantastic entertaiment!"
Cons: "Security and bags checks returning were awful about 4 between airport doors and airplane. Must be a way to clean the process up some."
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."
Pros: "I used the prime lounge in Istanbul and when it was time to go, I was able to practically walk on the plane without any wait. The seats were comfy and didn't have a ton of legroom but it wasn't bad. The staff we're friendly and helpful. The in-flight entertainment had a pretty impressive selection and had one of the best-designed interfaces I've seen so far (and I've ridden a variety of airlines). Last and most important, the food was hands down the BEST I've had on a plane. Turkish is killing it, they're my new go-to airline!"
Cons: "I really can't complain about anything, even if I try! Maybe the touch screen sensitivity on the entertainment console seemed a little off, but that's just nitpicking"
Pros: "Food is bad.no other word is fitted. All the rest is good."
Pros: "good entertainment system good legroom new airplane"
Cons: "lowered the food standards compared to previous flights flight was late"
Pros: "Just entertainment system and crew makes your life easier on aircraft."
Cons: "Long boarding time from Amsterdam to Istanbul. No explanation of delay and THY wants you to wait miserably on gate. On Schipol airport there is screens everywhere and they do not bother to update the status of boarding. Instead, they behave like everything is normal you are the person making the problem."
Pros: "service always good"
Cons: "on the last flight didn't even have a personal monitor"
Pros: "The Turkish airline staff was great and very helpful"
Cons: "Itinerary on the way to Amsterdam was not correct and made me miss my first connection No option to pick vegetarian food ."
Cons: "to hot, very hot!!! ו suffered too much"
Cons: "They told us to observe the 4 groups mentioned on our boarding passes, then there was only one entry... From buses to plane, instead of separating people into buses according to seating, they mixed them all up, hence people who had seats up front were entering the rear of the plane and vice-versa, causing incredible congestion and confusion when boarding, people along the center aisles going both ways and trying to pass while loaded with hand baggage, quite ridiculous indeed."
Pros: "Muy buena aerolínea. Todo estuvo bien. 100% recomendada."
Pros: "food + entertainment"
Cons: "Leg space a nighrmare!! Was uncomfortable for all the 13 hrs of the flight. Terrible experience"
Pros: "It was a 12 or 13 hour flight and except for sitting too much we were never uncomfortable. The service level made me think we were back in the 80's. Hot towels, attentive service, tons of food and free drinks. There was actually one meal that we would have eaten even if it wasn't on a plane. They gave out full size blankets and pretty fluffy pillows. (I bring our own anymore, because you never know if you will get one on most airlines, and if you do they're usually useless). Their entertainment system was amazing. We caught up on all the recently released movies that we've wanted to see for FREE! If only Netflix had this quality of movie offerings. They had fresh flowers in the huge bathrooms. It's that type of attention to detail you just really don't see anymore."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing that could actually be changed."
Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"
Pros: "All perfect this time. Food was so tasty as always:) crew is very kind."

Pros: "The crew at the Tokyo airport was very attentive and friendly."
Cons: "I was not allowed to checkin online.I called they said they assigned my chosen seats, I got to the airport and nothing was assigned. I wrote a formal complaint, all I received was "I am very sorry". And this happened on all 4 flights: Basel to Istanbul, Istanbul to Osaka, Tokyo to Istanbul and Istanbul to Basel. Just one of the worst experiences ever. The crew on the flight from Tokyo to Istanbul, also very rude and cold. The food was really bad, the egg was terrible!"
Pros: "The service was excellent The Pullman Hotel was an excellent choice for dissatisfied customers. The staff was friendly and understanding."
Cons: "Only an hour between connection so the connection was missed.Also the airline only gave a food vouchers for one restaurant.

Cons: "not really"

Cons: "I booked tickets via Delta, operated by KLM. They lost both of my check in bags in September, and it happened again today for the same scheduled flights. Had 4 hours of layover and KLM still wasn’t able to manage it."
Cons: "None of our 4 checked bags arrived with us. This was despite ample connection time (2+ hours) in Amsterdam."
Pros: "I slept pretty much the whole time"
Cons: "Actually the Welcome on board announcement. The part where they special welcome loyalty program members. I do not get that... I am an explorer holder my self, but really?? so other paying customers are not as welcome. This is leftovers from the older days.."
Pros: "crew were absolutely delightful, full of smiles and doing everything to make you comfortable. seats were fine enough and got some work done and a bit of sleep. first lunch was fresh and tasty, but the second, a burger, was edible, but not much more."
Cons: "tv screens are dated so movies are not as crisp as you find in newer planes. you need a 2 prong audio adapter to use your own headphones."
Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Everting so good ex"

Pros: "Flight was lovely, crew were friendly and very helpful and food was delicious!! We travelled with assistance for mum and it was excellent and we were kept updated all through the flight."
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."
Cons: "They didn’t let us board the plane. Allegedly the plane was changed and make us travel by train!! They offered us a compensation but we haven’t heard from them yet. Not good experience at all."

Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."
Pros: "I liked the leg room, I liked the customer service of the crew, smooth flight."
Cons: "Both ways up and down I struggled with over-head luggage space. We were allowed a cabin bag and a small hand-bag in the flight but as we were among the last half of the passengers to board the flight we couldn't find anywhere to keep our luggage and the crew had to take them away from us to store them somewhere at the back far away from our seats. As a result we had to wait until all the passengers got off the plane to get back our luggage and we were the last two passengers to get off. Unpleasant!"
Pros: "Smooth boarding. Good food. Decent leg room at my seat. Good crew. Flight was on time. Good magazine on the flight for entertainment."
Cons: "They didn't give any napkins out with the food which was weird."
Cons: "I wasn't sitting next to my partner and we sat on the Tarmac for 45 minutes after the flight was already delayed by 30 minutes."
Cons: "Terrible moslem food, too much lentil with tasteless chicken"
Pros: "Even for a 50 minute flight, drinks and sandwich was provided"
Pros: "early arrival,comfort"
Cons: "late boarding while standing around waiting for pilot to ararive"
Pros: "Flight all good"
Cons: "Suitcase did not arrive and still not received."
Cons: "My Kosher meal never made it on-board. The cabin (and the airport) were way too cold"
Cons: "KLM sent us to Kiev thru Stambul (Turkey). We have spent 8 hours more on flights."
Pros: "Food was of a fairly high standard and so too was the entertainment. At least the Captain was honest in that he admitted KLM's baggage loading process was a mess and caused the delay."
Cons: "A baggage loading problem meant that all baggage needed to be offloaded and then re-loaded......this took 2 hours and then another 20 minute delay due to congestion with air traffic over France! Where were the cabin crew during the delay? They may have not been onboard given their lack of visibility during the delay. The only time they appeared was to distribute a cutlet of water and a packet of dry biscuits. Inflight, apart from the meal service routines, on this 13+ hour flight the crew were notable for not being visible."
Cons: "Hotel was rubbish"
Pros: "British airways, does what it says on the tin."
Cons: "If you have any problems. Do not call customer support!!! Call centre is in SA, and the operatives are unhelpful, put the phone down and incompetent. I have reservations wheather to book with BA ever again due to my bad experience. 2 hours wasted on the phone, followed by calls the next day to finally get 2 off flights cancelled and a return flight amended in my party of 3. Not fun!!"
Cons: "Understand sometimes out of airlines control but reduce delays"
Cons: "The 60 euro bagage fee for just checking 1 bag was excessive. There was no obvious way to pay on line or with the app"
Pros: "Smooth boarding/ de-planing ; everything was on time"
Cons: "Small aircraft"
Pros: "The crew was good, very helpful."
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable at all. I’m 6.0 and 150lb so not very big but my shoulders were already above the head rest. Also leg space was very poor. This was an American Airlines flight by the way. 777-300 airplane. I’ve had better flying experience before in the Same type of plane"
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!!"
Pros: "yes seats were more comfortable and more leg room than the other airlines I have used"
Cons: "It was all pretty good and despite leaving a little late we got there on time"
Cons: "Despite most of the plane being offered refreshment I never was as staff not organised enough to have time to do so, even though other airlines have managed easily."

Cons: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Baggage delayed on arrival"
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "The food, inflight entertainment. Our flight was delayed by over an hour."
Cons: "BA need to stop the silly practice of boarding according to status - it’s inefficent and leaves me with the impression that BA is obsessed with pseudo hierarchy."
Pros: "I only like the voucher idea but still doesn't cover up all the other things ."
Cons: "I didn't like that it delayed my plans and it was unexpected and they did not inform us until I go to the airport , for 30 minutes in the air we had to wait 6 hours"
Pros: "Original timing"
Cons: "Boarding was a chaotic affair. Landed late but no mention of apology. Disappointed."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly staff"
Cons: "Very poor movie choice and poor quality screen"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Helpful staff, very pleasant flight and even arrived early!"
Cons: "The fact that you had to buy even water."
Cons: "The complete lack of help from BA staff after I missed my flight. No helpful suggestions at all when I asked for guidance. Just 'the flight is closed and there are no more seats left today'."
Pros: "Dinner Lunch Snacks Tea"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "How the power outage was handled at Schiphol was chaotic"
Pros: "Comfortable short hop"
Pros: "Fast as smooth"
Pros: "The Crew were great"
Cons: "Boarding could have been more efficient"
Cons: "Delays and overbooked flights"
Cons: "2 Hour Delay"
Cons: "The tickets arrived at 9.50 am for 10.55 take off. I tried to cHe Kin in line but it didn’t let me. I went to the counter and they told me check in had closed and I would have to buy another ticket. It was my fault for buying a ticket. Goodbye £200. Thanks BA"
Pros: "Last minute flight (booked 4 hours before departure), one way, economy, for €99 from Amsterdam to Edinburgh via Gatwick. Long layover at Gatwick (around 3 hours), but I had much work to do anyway, so time went faster than I realised. Not sure if this was the case at Schiphol, but at Gatwick had priority security queue as a BA customer."
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: "The boarding process could be better"
Pros: "Polite crew, flight was on time landing - even early. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Flight was late"
Cons: "According yo the kayak app on the moment of booking the flight was going to Heathrow, but it went to Gatwick. In addition, the tariff did not include one checked luggage as shown on the app as well. Really disappointed with my first use of kayak."
Pros: "Some sleep"
Cons: "No food or drink provided in crappy seats"
Pros: "the staff was nice"
Pros: "The staff where very good, was comfy for short trip"
Cons: "2hr 40min delay, and a very hectic and long boarding process"

Cons: "Delayed takeoff due to customer replanting and hunt for their luggage. Noisy children throughout flight. Unable to nap due to noise."
Pros: "Quick and efficient. Very informative about delays."
Pros: "When it got going, a pleasant flight."
Cons: "The delay was longer than the flight, although not necessarily BA's fault."
Cons: "At airport had line for baggage drop if had boarding passes. But, then only had one station open out of four or five. One person had problem I guess. Line didn't move for 10-15 minutes. VERY BAD!!"
Pros: "Pleasant helpful staff, comfortable, clean seat, good food."
Cons: "Having to pay TWICE for extra item of luggage!! Some delay with boarding"
Pros: "Nothing - I arrived eventually."
Cons: "Undue stress, over booked flight, lost luggage. Zero customer service. Will never fly BA again."
Pros: "easy boarding, land at T5 which is a very well designed terminal"
Cons: "check is was horrendous. Long queues of people, long wait and not enough people to man the check in counters. Sitting down in my seat my kneeds immediately banged on the seat in front of me. Its clear that this aircraft has less leg space that then usual. And now you have to pay for all food and drink. £9 for a sandwich and G&T."
Pros: "What a different experience in relation to last week!"
Pros: "On time and accommodating"
Cons: "All ok"
