The entertainment selection was great, boarding process was smooth. However, the staff were so rude, my tray table was broken so had drinks split on me. I had a child coughing on me and kicking me in her sleep. The person in front of me put his seat down so far that my knees were against the seat (I’m only 5’9). The person behind me used her tray table to sleep so I couldn’t put my seat back. She woke up for breakfast, by which point I wanted sleep so I put my seat back and she complained about it so I had to put the seat upright again!

Pros: "The crew was helpful. Flights were on time."
Cons: "The transfer in Dubai was to be made in 75 minutes to another terminal where the inter-terminal bus only comes every 40 minutes. Almost lost my connecting flight. Also, the seat on the FRA - YYZ leg was 23A. Couldn’t be reclined and had no leg space. Painful!"
Pros: "Excellent flights in all respects."
Cons: "Me"
Pros: "Crew were great, entertainment was great, all in all a really comfortable flight despite not getting an aisle seat which would have made it even better"
Cons: "I discovered when I hit Dubai that despite having an eight an a half hour layover that I didn't qualify for the free hotel I thought I did qualify for as someone with an eight hour plus flight so that was a little disappointing have had it before so assumed it was on all flights but that ended up being a negative surprise..."
Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent toilets are clean Gluten Free meals are available, that's a big plus"

Pros: "First time we flew on business on international (we upgraded)."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Boarding took very long and seating was very weird. A lot of people including me were moved around multiple times due to seating problems. Apparently there was no sync between the staff itself and everyone was trying to solve this problem in their own way. However the good part was that they were at least trying to solve the problem! Flight was delayed by about 30 mins due to this chaos."
Cons: "The seats on the 777-300ER were tiny compared to the seats on the A380 from JFK to dubai. My wife and I are both small people and we were cramped. This is very unfair to us and even so to larger people on such a long leg The entertainment screens were also very poor. Small, low res"

Pros: "Emirates flight was fine. Problem was booking a South African Airways codebase flight on Kayak. Neither SAA or Emerates were able to look up our booking reference and so we did not get seat assignments until the airport."

Pros: "Everything was on time. Very comfortable. Nice service."
Pros: "Long flight. Not enough overhead space. Crew was great. Food ok. Seats get very uncomfortable on a 15 hour flight"
Pros: "Barcelona to Dubai flight - the flight attendants were personable, helpful, and very courteous. In-flight service was frequent with many stops to check on the passengers of a very full flight. Wonderful and attentive service, even when juggling such a large number of passengers. I was very impressed with the work ethic of this crew."
Cons: "The flight attendants on the Dubai to Singapore flight were surprisingly unhelpful. It was a mostly empty flight and yet during this flight, there were very infrequent beverage service. When I activated my call flight attendant button, no one stopped by. This included at least 3 different flight attendants passing me, some more than a few times, and not once did anyone stop. After waiting for 10 - 15 minutes, I turned off the light and went to the galley part of the plane, only to find a group of flight attendants socializing. I requested a drink and it was handed to me without the attendant every making eye contact as the attendant still was facing and engaged in their conversation. This is not the first time I have experienced this on an Emirates flight so I think the staff training may need to be reinforced. Business class service on Emirates is quite good. But I fly both Economy and Business class. The experiences in Economy did affect my decision on which airline I generally fly with for business class travel."
Cons: "Screen was black and white most of flight"
Pros: "Emirates flight and on flight services were Superb!"
Cons: "Bought tickets on Malaysian Airlines quota/allocation but was turned away by Malaysian Airlines counter becausw its operated by Emirates. Im a silver card holder on Oneworld ao I wanted to have less queue by using Silver card privileges at Malaysian Airlines counter but was not accepted. Had to go onlong queue at Emirates in KLIA but it was fast."

Cons: "It was a great experience"
Pros: "Every thing amazing"
Cons: "This trip really excellent Thank you Turkish Airlines"
Pros: "The food and the entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding was late and they change the number of the gate without telling the passengers. The seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "good company"
Pros: "Sleeping accommodations, storage, crew attentiveness in business class was outstanding. 5he business lounge in Istanbul was the best ever. Great airline."
Pros: "Food and service is excellent. Istanbul lounge is great."
Cons: "Delayed in both directions. Happens. But zero announcements. Zero. Staff didn't know what was going on. Complete chaos."
Pros: "Food"
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: "Friendly staff, great food and entertainment selections, care package/pillow/blanket provided, comfortable flight"
Pros: "There was almost nobody on the flight. In flight entertainment was awesome too."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The flight was excellent, with good food and good service. The crew was very professional and courteous."
Cons: "Our experience in the Istanbul airport. We got off our connecting flight and no one was willing to provide us with directions. We had to stand in a security line for two hours thinking that we had as a consequence missed our connecting flight. Again, no communication. We found out when we finally got through security (we had already gone through security at the Paris airport), everyone was in the same situation and our flight had been delayed. It would have been helpful to know that as we were standing in line. While in the line, many people panicked and starting pushing their way to the front of the line. Again, no officials were there to keep order. It was truly a mess! And creating too much anxiety and stress that I really wanted to not have on my trip back to the USA. I realize that in these times, we must go through added security, but I am accustomed to US airports where there is more communication over the intercom and by airport officials. In Istanbul, it seemed that everyone did not want to give directions, and airport officials seemed to avoid the public they were there to serve."
Pros: "Professional and friendly staffing, comfortable flight."
Cons: "We realized when boarding to first flight that they did not included my son on next connection flight...oops when it was addressed they fixed it in a professional matter with appologies at boarding."
Cons: "In flight entertainment system was not functioning. Turkish refused to provide hotel in Istanbul as per their policy even after being told by Turkish employees in the USA and France that this would be provided due to my 20 hour layover. I will not fly Turkish again in the future."
Cons: "Enjoyed the hotel stay on the long layover"
Pros: "Will definitely fly Turkish Airlines again!"
Cons: "No being able to rebook!"
Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"
Pros: "love the food and the crew service."
Cons: "Aircon could have been better. Someone got sick during the flight because of that."
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Cons: "I have lactose intolerance and I tried ordering the special meals. However the lactose free meals are not good. I got it more than once, it's always dry grilled chicken, steamed veggies and plain rice. Overall it's a dry meal and no flavorful at all. On this trip I didn't order a special as I was hoping one of the options wouldn't have lactose."
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: "Lots of crew members Pay attention Food was good"
Cons: "The boarding was chaotic"
Pros: "The food and entertainment on the plane"
Cons: "The Turkish Airlines staff can be very rude, non-communicative in passing along information. They do not like you to ask questions nor do they want to answer your questions. They yell at you or just simply ignore you. No legroom. The crew did not mention that are flight was delayed prior or that we missed our connecting flight and what to do from there. I was given a hotel room during my layover but its in a scary neighborhood and it smells like sewage is nearby. The Grand Yavaz. The cheaper price is not worth the hassle. I can spend my good money elsewhere...i will be sure to warn others."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "1- bad service 2- bad attitudes 3- Always DELAYS 4- lost the bag"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled so that's it!"
Pros: "Entertainment options were excellent for adults and ado. The crew were very accommodating"

Pros: "The service was okay."
Cons: "There was a woman sitting behind me with a loud child that kept kicking my chair."
Cons: "Some of my electronics, clothing, and personal belongings were stolen from my luggage"
Cons: "Terrible connections. Long delays. Truly awful"
Pros: "The food.."
Cons: "That the anytime snacks that was offered was not available for passengers"
Pros: "This was the return flight I skipped base on the horrible customer service I received on the first leg of the flight."

Pros: "The entertainment choice ! Amazing !!"
Cons: "They lost track of my suitcase. I just received it"

Pros: "It got me to the next airport alive"
Cons: "There was not much to watch on tv and not enough alcohol"
Pros: "Excellent service, excellent food, very friendly crew"
Cons: "no subtitles on English language movies, which means I could not understand half of the dialogues because of the noise and poor sound quality. It would be very nice to always have English subtitles on all English-language movies."
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: "A great example of excellent service. The entertainment system really couldn't be beat."
Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"
Pros: "i love the movies"
Cons: "The cabin crew was rude and disorganized"
Pros: "Loved the leg room and movie/live TV selection"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Had emergency exit row with plenty of leg room"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The friendly atmosphere, and the choice of food and drink."
Cons: "Nothing was wrong"
Pros: "Every thing. The overall service in economy is equal to business class on American carriers, with the obvious exception of the seat itself. A light breakfast meal on a 45 minute flight? Absolutely incredible. I've also experienced this with Lufthansa in the past, but they didn't have seat-back entertainment on short flights."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
Cons: "Small food/entertainment selection, jarring landing, inattentive baggage handlers."
Cons: "They missed my connecting flight, were terrible at communication"
Cons: "Smelly and disorder"
Pros: "Very good food. Quite an extensive movie selection. Staff was very pleasant."
Cons: "It takes a bit long to complete all processes"
Cons: "The service is slow and flight crew do not go out of their way to connect or provide extra service. In fact they"
Pros: "Smooth. Polite. Delicious"
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Broken seat, TV only showing in black and white, ice cold and/or inedible globular food, air attendants with very little command of English"
Pros: "Comfort of A380 Legs space"
Cons: "Terrible Connecto in Frankfurt We had to run for 15mn to get our Singapore flight with no help from Lufthansa: poor service"
Pros: "Not much went well, sorry"
Cons: "Because of bad logistics, the flight from CDG to FRA was delayed and therefore i missed my connection to AUS. Lufthansa personnel could have helped me make the second flight but didn't bother. I was rebooked on another flight through IAH which defeats the purpose of choosing a direct flight."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and attentive. Seats were very tight and uncomfortable, specially for a 6’3 tall person!"
Cons: "Boarding could be a little bit more organized"
Cons: "Better Communication from Lufthansa"
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Confortable seats"
Pros: "Service is excellent, comfortable seats and space between legs is comfortable even in economy."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "They cancelled my ticket because I missed the second leg of the flight. They didn’t even offer me an option and told me to find my own flight home. I had to pay $1100 on another airline to fly home tomorrow. I will NEVER use Lufthansa again"
Pros: "for the first time ever, my kid ate the airplane food, and it was because it was good. the service was really good and the staff outstanding."
Cons: "Te cabin pressure gave us headache. always happens with the A380 though."
Cons: "Airplane food eatable"
Pros: "Crew, boarding, seat"
Cons: "Paris airport is extremely passenger unfriendly. Better to connect somewhere else"
Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."
Pros: "Crew and flight and service were fine"
Cons: "Economy seats are cramped"
Pros: "on time no hassle"
Cons: "nothing in particular"
Pros: "Everything was great. Not a single downside. Easy to follow announcements on connection, punctual and nice aircraft."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "The fact that I was re routed that my flight from Paris was late and made me miss my connection."
Pros: "Attentive and friendly crew, good selection of in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "Crew did not come around very frequently with water throughout flight, mostly only during regular beverage service."
Pros: "The staff was communicative and genuine. The food was decent. Even though the flight arrived late I felt ok about it due to the direct communication of details about the situation. I was stuck in the extremely cramped space of seats just in front of the lavatory making the seat in front me 5 inches from my nose when reclined but the staff was sympathetic offering to ask the passenger in front of me to redress their seat more upright and also allowing me to spread out across two seats to compensate."
Cons: "While the staff compensated for the more than standardly cramped seating arrangement, I think the row of seats just in front of the lavatories should be either better designed or designated not usable. I am only 5’3” and 125lbs but still was faced with a mere 5 inches in front of me when the passenger in front of me reclined his seat. I couldn’t even stand in order to exit the row and had to crawl over the seats to my side. This had me thinking how dangerous this row could be in case of an emergency. Please consider designating these seats either not to be used or optional for passengers."
Pros: "Clean, polite and cheerful staff, good food conveniently offered, on time, decent in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "great airport and ease of check in and quickness on boarding flight."
Cons: "boarding everyone all at once creates long unnecessary lines when staggered boarding would help"
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Pros: "Great service, comfy plane, smooth ride."
Pros: "I love Lufthansa! Great service, comfortable, warm towels before meals served with real silverware. Amazing!"
Cons: "Service! Comfort!!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice. 3 hour trip took 15 hours."
Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Pros: "The food for the morning was a white chocolate cranberry cookie which was delicious"
Cons: "Our plane was 30 mins late and the terminal was right next to security so we couldn’t hear them when they spoke the English or French on the PA system about us being delayed. We just barely made our connecting flight and our next flight was way better in service. Our luggage didn’t make the connection and hoping that all our precious cargo from our anniversary trip made it. The flight attendant told us we had enough time to make it to our next flight but I honestly ran from one point of the airport to the other. The staff said it wasn’t that far and no checkpoints to go through - this information was false."
Cons: "The boarding area was cramped."
Pros: "Crew attention"
Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
Pros: "Flight went well."
Cons: "Frankfurt airport is large and complex. Takes some effort to negotiate from one flight to another."
Pros: "I was sleep the whole time"
Cons: "It was okay"
Pros: "Crew were all super polite and friendly"
Pros: "The water and small coffee cake was nice to have on this connecting flight."
Cons: "First, I had issues with checking into my flight online, which lead to me having to print my boarding pass at the airport. Since I had a separate flight with Eurowings that sent me from Munich to Paris, which was not connected with this flight, I came in directly into the airport and no where near a Kiosk to check in or print out my ticket/boarding pass. I explained to numerous employees my situation and they casually exclaimed I should be able to make it in. Once I got into the airport I could barely get through security since I did not have my boarding pass. I kept explaining I don't have a boarding pass because I could not check into my flight to obtain it. Then when they finally let me through with only 10 minutes to spare before my flight's gate would close, I finally reached the boarding desk only to be told I had to wait because out of the two men who were scanning boarding passes, they were too busy to help me. I then had to explain three times that I had already paid for and booked my flight, however, I could not check in online and was having an issue with an error that stated I was missing information, even though there was nothing marked in red or anything marked to edit, so each time I tried it denied me. I also tried calling for customer support and did not get a hold of anyone because the lines were too busy. After explaining all of this to the man at boarding, he made me wait an additional 5 minutes before helping me check into the flight and print out my boarding pass. I was treated like a stand-by customer and I did not appreciate it since I paid for this flight and tried to check in 24 hours prior. I was expecting much more from Lufthansa, as my boyfriend recommended this flight company to me, but I was extremely disappointed in so many ways it makes me question whether I want to fly this airline again for future trips abroad."
Pros: "Smooth flight. No delay, no unpleasant surprise."
Pros: "On my going flight MSP to Frankfurt, I had a normal seat and as a tall person, it was miserable. The seats were so tight I had to have my legs in the aisle and constantly stand just to make it. On the return I was given an exit row and it was quite nice."
Cons: "Condor is a reduced price airline so I was not expecting a large amount of entertainment. But only two free movies was a little bit extreme. The music selection was good."
Cons: "The boarding process takes too long as people try to take too many things"
Pros: "The flight was not fully booked."
Cons: "The snack provided was totally insufficient. the check-in staff were stringent about luggage size and weight even when the flight was not full."
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Cons: "Great customer service!"
Pros: "The flight was short and well organized, boarding relatively efficient, snack was just OK, service was nice and crew was very accommodating and seemed happy. Mobile boarding options worked well."
Cons: "Snack could be better."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Old plane. Bad food. Small seats. Obsolete entertainment system. Hate United!"
Pros: "phenomenal transfer from one flight to the next, thank you lufthansa"
Pros: "Geat customer service by flight attendants."
Pros: "Lovely crew."
Cons: "Boarding process was unclear."
Pros: "The leg room was definitely more than on a US flight, which I gravely appreciated."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic -- no rhyme or reason . Pasta dish and chicken dish were both low quality."
Pros: "Boarding and flight was on time"
Cons: "Seats and comfort was heavily compromised in economy class"
Pros: "All the services were great."
Cons: "Everything was perfect."
Pros: "Smooth Ride Stewardesses"
Pros: "Fast on ant off"
Cons: "Not enough hip or leg room which is somewhat usual, but recent flights with United are much better"
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to the need to replace an engine part, but the crew kept us well informed. Despite taking off nearly an hour and half late, we were only about 45 minutes late in arriving. What was so great about this flight was that it was NOT full. I had an entire row to myself so I could stretch out and sleep. If I was in a regular coach seat, I would not have been comfortable for the entire trip. The crew was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The food is pretty mediocre."
Pros: "Food was terrible"
Cons: "Toilets were not clean"
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and willing to assist with everything."
Pros: "The food was great—snacks, meals, drinks—all complimentary!"
Pros: "The crew provided the best service I think I’ve ever gotten on a flight. Attentive and friendly!"
Cons: "More open counters for the plethora of people trying to check in. Started the trip off with frustration"
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was unbearably hot"
Pros: "Great crew. BA lounge at Heathrow excellent."
Cons: "Flight delayed 4 hours due to technical issues. BA for a new plane but unfortunately still 4 hours late leaving Heathrow."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly and I was very pleased with flight experience from beginning to end"
Cons: "steak was dry. lite lunch was very salty shrimp"
Cons: "The food was okay. The sandwich towards the end of the flight was not very good at all."
Cons: "One flight attendant was exceedingly rude during the boarding process, but thankfully she was not in our area."
Pros: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Cons: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable when it came leg room"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "The plan was new and smelled nice and the staff was very entertaining and nice."
Cons: "The flight didn’t have wifi"
Pros: "We pushed back from the gate about 24 minutes late and arrived at our destination about 38 minutes late. The four-course dinner (Chicken Tikka Masala or Penne Pasta) was good for airline food. The crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "No USB power ports by the seats."
Pros: "British Air reps took us through security and to the gate for boarding which was most appreciated after our check-in. Once on the plane the flight was great and the crew helpful. I wheel chair was waiting for us when we landed in London."
Cons: "We were told to check in at terminal 2A to British Air for our flight. BA was on the lower floor almost in terminal 2B and there were no signs indicating where we were to find their check-in. When we checked in they initially had no record of our continuing flight on Virgin Atlantic to the US. They checked our bags through to the US but could not give us boarding cards for the 2nd leg of our flight on Virgin."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Smooth flight. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "My baggage couldn't be checked straight through to the states. Had to pick up bags, go through security again, which limited time spent in the airport to enjoy duty free shopping etc. Baggage allowances were different between British Airways and Virgin Atlantic, which necessitated checking out carry on bags. The gate agent was accommodating and checked them at no charge, but that could have been an expensive proposition if she wasn't perceptive. All food and drinks on this flight are for purchase vs. complimentary"
Pros: "The boarding agent did not allow my traveling companion on Till the very last moment because of the size of his backpack. He this was our seventh plane ride in two weeks and nobody else has given us a problem.. After 10 days on the Camino DeSantiago the extra stress was not welcome.. Also short trip with the no there for each service was disappointing. Didn’t see a whole lot of the crew. It was if they were taking a break the entire time."
Cons: "The amount of carry-on and size should not have been an issue with backpacks. They fit perfectly into the overhead compartments. Plus a snack and beverage service would have been nice"
Pros: "I got free juice and a snack, almost unheard of nowadays!"
Cons: "I don't know what happened. Check-in took almost an hour. Usually it only takes 10 or 15 minutes. I am glad that I got to the airport 2 hours a head of time."
Pros: "Not much. Eventually got to where we were going."
Cons: "I can't remember a more cramped and uncomfortable flight. Missed connection on way Paris and we arrived 6 hours late. It took British airways 3 days to get our lost luggage to us. Delayed on way back, adding 4 hours to our trip because the first plane was not "serviceable" and they had to get a replacement. They arbitrarily decide who has to much carry on luggage and force you to check it last minute at the gate while letting others with same size bags take them on the plane. Certainly no better than bargain flights and possibly worse. Why pay extra? No more British Airways for us."
Pros: "Once again, British Air provided excellent service and friendly staff for our flight from London to Boston. The Paris to London crew was not as accommodating and there were difficulties with language barriers in CDG."
Pros: "The Crew were great"
Cons: "Boarding could have been more efficient"
Pros: "The food and the services. The plane looks new and clean. Many new release movies."
Cons: "seat space is too small and not comfort."
Cons: "All was good."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "The service was bad"
Pros: "Overall flight experience was average. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "American Airlines always use those old Boeings for flights between Paris and the US. They look so old inside. No modern entertainment. They still have those small screens on the ceiling. No individual entertainment stations. And seats are not comfortable."
Pros: "Your teammates, Fatou and Sarah at the check in desk in charles de gaulle made our lives doo easy after a stressful and ling journey. Their kind service and forethought helped us a lot."
Cons: "BA's poor customer service team who don't explain extra baagge charges correctly and don't have the decency to say they were in the wrong for not dealing with my issue correctly ans giving the run around"
Pros: "It flies"
Cons: "No courtesy! At least soft drinks ought to be on the house - they even charge for water - disgusting compared to US airless that at least offer you nuts and a drink for free! BA is now in the EasyJet-RyanAir league! Awful!"
Cons: "There was no food."
Pros: "Arrived early, earned oneworld status points."
Cons: "BA are a budget airline charging premium prices."
Cons: "Did not hear a warning for additional, strict security screening and lines at Heathrow. Had only 1h 5m layover, barely made my connection."
Cons: "Our flights were sold as British airways but operated by American Airlines. Yes, we flew economy and we were expecting small seats, but these seats felt extremely small. They pack so many seats into the space that there is no comfort at all in flying. It was a complete let down. Food was an improvement from our flight from LAX To CDG, but if was only mediocre at best. I really expected this flight to be better than those I've taken with Vueling, Iberia and Virgin but it was terribly disappointing. I would think twice before purchasing a ticket with this airline again."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Overall quick, easy and event free...just as flights should be."
Cons: "Plane got a little hot sitting at the gate and our seats were the only ones that didn't have air vents."
Pros: "The staff very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "We missed two flights,made it on the third trip.when trying to get some help and information I felt like they were blowing us off ( employees at the airport in Paris) not so much British Airways.The first time we missed the flight it was because we were sent to the wrong gate,and we tried to get information we were told to sit down our plane would be next.We then had to start the process all over again going thru check in and security, proses was so slow we missed the second flight,then I had to go thru the process anion retrieving our bags,going thru check in and security the third time,by the time I got to the gate they were boarding. It was a nightmare and I got to feeling we would never get out of Paris.Not so sure I would want to go to Paris Airport again.? If I would use BA."
Pros: "The flight crew were nice, the flight was over before they could even finish drink service."
Pros: "Wonderful customer service and hot meal was a lovely treat!!"
Pros: "Timely"
Cons: "The seats are too comfortable"
Pros: "The delay in the flight leaving an hour later."
Cons: "The Terminal chsnge. It would be appreciated if additional golf cart transport could be provided between terminals so folks could make connecting Flights."
Pros: "I liked the nice crew. Short flight from Paris and arrived in LHR little early. Even in economy, seats were confortable. The 1.5 hr Flight was very smooth and short."
Cons: "I can't say that there wasn't anything that I didn't like about this particular flight from Paris to London."
Cons: "Whatever the issue was two hours sitting alongside the gate caused issues for everyone onboard the plane and caused us to have to run through the entire airport just to make our connection."
Pros: "Cleanliness"
Cons: "Attittude of Ground Staff and difficult to find check in counters at CDG airport"
Pros: "the flight was two hours late and I missed the connection, but it wasn't BA fault. the service at CDG was so, so; service at LHR was much better!"
Pros: "My husband left his wallet on the plane and everybody was extremely helpful...we were able to get it back intact thanks to all of their wonderful Dallas staff!!!"
Pros: "Everything. Service with a smile. Top notch friendly flight attendants!"
Cons: "n/a"
Cons: "The flight got delayed and I couldn't make it for the connection flight. I waited for 6 hours to rebook the flight and BA booked a hotel 2hours far from the airport by bus... I got to LA a day after but my baggage didn't arrive. I got it back 4DAYS after. All of my experience was just horrible."
Pros: "the crew were friendly and efficient"
Cons: "old plane uncomfortably seats no personal IFE"
Pros: "The flight and in flight service was excellent"
Cons: "the rebooking of this flight was terrible, our seats were re booked from British Airways to American Airlines but not ticketed correctly by BA. I had to call airfare.com support four time with no resolution to only end up running from BA back to AA ticket counters only to be met with multiple BA agents that did not take the time to just lookup our flight info correctly. It took multiple time to finally have a BA ticket agent finally correct the issue. Please dont use Airfare.com their support is the worst."
Pros: "Upon arrival, crew could not manage to open the door. Had to wait until technicians were able to arrive and open the door from the outside. As a result, an iffy transfer became disturbing."
Cons: "Transfer between BA and AA terminals was chaotic."
Pros: "Airplane, food and service"
Cons: "AA from Philadelphia to SD charges 8 USD for a terrible red wine"

On the way in they had vegetarian options but nothing but meat options on the way back. I totally forgot to ask for vegetarian meals when booking my flight, but luckily there were enough items to get me through the flights. A wonderful flight and crew.

Pros: "The food!! The flight was in time and also the flight attendant were so available and caring"
Cons: "I have wifi in board for an hour for whatsapp messaging I would have beloved to have it all flight"
Pros: "Crew. Comfort."
Cons: "reduce baggage charges."
Cons: "Water to drink during flight."
Pros: "everything was pretty adequate"
Cons: "they skipped me when they passed out food and never came back."
Pros: "Crew was really great - helpful and kind."
Cons: "Both flights delayed which meant I missed my connecting flight. Stuck in Rome airport for several hours with no information about rescheduled flight. Finally figured it out with help of Rome airport information desk."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable and generally this flight is comfy"
Cons: "The queue during boarding is very long, they need to add counters"
Pros: "Nothing?"
Cons: "Lounge seating and services. Boarding. Lots of uncontrollable people trying to be first to board."
Pros: "I love the entertainment and frequent availability of food and drinks"
Cons: "The seats are too squished together. I was stuck next to a fat woman who kept shutting off my movies by hitting the controls of my arm chair"
Pros: "Your crew were great."
Pros: "Nice crew. Smooth flight :)"
Pros: "The ravioli was great, some of the other food was not great. Otherwise, the flight was easy."
Cons: "More entertainment options, the movies and TV shows offered are not varied or very good."
Cons: "It took 45 minutes for a flight attendant to respond to my call despite me calling dor assistance every 10 min. I had an issue with my tv screen and was not able to use the in flight entertainment I am very dissatisfied with such poor care and professionalism from your staff. This was something that should not have taken 45 min to get solved and even worse despite the call light being on multiple flight attendants walked by and did not even bother to question why the call light was on"
Cons: "There was no entertainment. Breakfast was standard"
Pros: "Although we had abou an hour delay, we arrived only thirty minutes after the scheduled time. The flight crew was very nice and friendly."

Cons: "Flight was delayed again. No priority boarding for Star Alliance members. Staff was unfriendly."
Pros: "It is an African airline so I am doing my best to support it. I am grateful I was allocated to a hotel for my long layover"
Cons: "I had a long layover in Addis and the hotel I was allocated to could improve its service. I was expected to be served breakfast in the morning. My flight was at 820 am There could be some improvement on food"
Pros: "Flight attendants were helpful and attentive."
Cons: "Boarding was fairly chaotic, there were no outlets for charging in the business class, entertainment limited."
Pros: "The overall work ethics and the ease of boarding was awesome as well as time line, for hotel transfer due to layoff time was also excellent"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Cons: "The crew kept on supplying 3 passengers with beer and wine, who obviously had too much to drink already and were obnoxiously loud and disturbing the flight."
Cons: "Transfer at Addis Ababa was horrendous - no help from ground staff and the airport was a confusing mess. The landing in cape town was very rough and jumpy."
Cons: "Did not provide special meal although I called ahead to request it."
Pros: "Brand New Aircraft"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Little turbulence but nothing serious"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything was bad, very upset !"
Pros: "The staff where so dedicated. The food was very real and crunchy. Go for the beef instead of chicken. I had both. Was a ten hr flight."
Cons: "The fact that they write your card details carelessly on a pierce of paper when making an inflight purchase. Should be swipe and all done. No need writing those sensitive data down."
Pros: "I like the entertainment,but the quality is not quite good in Amharic part."
Cons: "The food is very bad."
Pros: "Also great experience"
Pros: "The flight service"
Cons: "The food was good"
Pros: "nice movie but that's all"
Cons: "chair and light broken. tasteless food. small screens"
Pros: "The food was terrible but it was somewhat editable. It could have just been because I was so hungry I could eat anything too."
Cons: "The staff was rude, the boarding was a mess, the cabin was at least a little cooler than previous flight but still very uncomfortable, the amount of announcements was absolutely absurd!!! It was almost an announcement every 15 minutes. And the plane played music (terrible music) for 45 min extremely loud after taking off AND and hour before landing. It was so awful and so loud you couldn't even hear your own entertainment playing from your own headsets. I understand music while boarding and de-planing but there is absolutely no reason to have that playing that long after take off and hat soon before landing."
Pros: "Great prices, and helpful staff"
Cons: "The food was mediocre, almost poor."
Pros: "Great prices, and helpful staff"
Cons: "The food was mediocre, almost poor."
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised at the entertainment. Other than that, everything was pretty good. Nothing stood out as exceptional and nothing was particularly bad."
Cons: "The seats weren't the most comfortable, but on a 10 hour flight, nothing is."
Cons: "There was a four hour delay for departure!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Aircraft change led to massive confusion. No priority boarding for business class. Inept and care-least service from the head cabin attendant in business class. Zilch entertainment. Inedible dinner"
Pros: "In entabe the way everything is done was very good the food on that day was not good"
Pros: "Comfortable. Crew excellent. On time. Efficient on boarding and landing - good information throughout"
Cons: "Addis Ababa airport very crowded with no seat available for five hour stopover. Food outlets limited"
Pros: "Friendly team."
Pros: "Ok"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The food was horrible. My TV didn't work and although I asked for it to be reset several times, the crew kept forgetting. The flight was supposed to be 9 hours, but we left late and it was 11+ hours. I understand things happen, but the crew gave no explanation for the delay or elongated flight. Last, but not least, when we landed in Newark we waited 2 hours for our luggage to come out. We landed at 9:50pm and didn't receive our baggage until 11:50pm. My friend and I were not even the last to get our bags. Overall this was the worst flight experience I've ever had."
Cons: "My daughter's entertainment system crashed after 20 minutes. She ended up sleeping so I watched a movie. When she woke up, we were going to switch seats, but I tried to turn it back on and mine wasn't working. (By the end of the flight, only maybe 10-20% were using theirs as many others crashed as well.) The food was very boring. At one point I was looking for a flight attendant and couldn't find a single one anywhere in coach."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable & some of the cabin crew were courteous"
Cons: "Flight delayed due to confusion at boarding gate, unprepared airport staff, wrong info on monitors. Again lack of food, forced to take whatever food they give you or you're told sorry, how can one side serve only fish while the other side chicken??? Vegetarians doomed as they don't get anything & are left without food! Major improvement required in food choices & availability! Our row of seats did not have volume on the tv monitors hence could not use!"
Pros: "I did like the overall services. I was comfortable with the crew and was entertained. I enjoyed the night over in the fhoice of loudging with nazra Hotel."
Cons: "I didn't like the quality of food in the hotel panaroma on my return. The hotel needed air refreshner as it wae stuffy and difficult to breath in. The reception was excellent but poor service."
Cons: "Horrible food selection, needs improvement"
Pros: "The crew was very nice, beer on the flight is always a nice touch , plenty of food and beverages. Nice collection of movies and music. Food is OK. We had a 10 Hour connection at Addis Ababba, and we were provided with a city tour at the first time, and hotel at the second. I liked the Injira :)"
Cons: "Overall, it's kinda depressing to fly with Ethiopian, the whole experience, from the colors of the uniforms, to the big African people, there was not enough room to seat next to other person, we and some people we met on the flight experienced the same thing. Addis Ababba was very not welcoming, we had a small tour at the city, the people are aggressive, we heard a lot of "farengie" all the time - "foreigners", everything was very expensive, because tourist have a lot of money... they are not afraid to touch you, even at the face. if somebody offers you guiding, they will ask for money later on and will take you to expensive places."
Cons: "Addis Airport is terribly organized and far too small for the volume of people they're pushing through it (which is probably the lead cause of the poor organization)."
Cons: "I ordered a vegan food. The crew had difficulties in delivering this simple thing"
Cons: "Very very old aeroplane"
Cons: "Food and entertainment is very poor."
