Cons: "We arrived onetime yet Emirates did not have a gate at SFO so we were parked on the tarmac for over an hour after a 16 hours flight. When we got thru immigration in record time due to the newly installed kiosks, we waited for 2.5hours to get our luggage, there was only one carousel open for an entire A380 airplane with all its luggage and the boxes were piling up on each other, some of them were crushed due to overloading, it took them 2 hours to open a second carousel to offload all of the bags. During this entire time, the Emirates representatives were unhelpful, the local SFO personnel were quite disorganized as well."
Pros: "Inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Long layover"
Pros: "Emirates has a great reputation, and now I've experienced first hand why that is! Great (complimentary!) food and beverages, clean comfortable seats, generous luggage policies, and impressive customer service. The crew on our flight represented 19 different countries and spoke a total of 19 different different languages. The woman ahead of me was very unpleasant about her screen not working, and every attendant she spoke to was infinitely polite and pleasant. They tried to reset her screen, and eventually found an empty seat and moved her to first class!"
Cons: "Only that I can't take an Emirates airbus for all of my flights! I was detained for awhile during boarding because I was chosen to have my carry-on bag checked, and it took awhile because I had filled a water bottle after passing through security and it took some discussion before being approved (my husband didn't know where I was and had already boarded and was worried)."
Cons: "They have been a nightmare to deal with and outright unethical. I do not plan to use Kayak any more due to this situation"

Cons: "One flight attendant was exceedingly rude during the boarding process, but thankfully she was not in our area."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable when it came leg room"
Cons: "this plane was 1.5 hours late - that was really the only problem."
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: "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: "It felt as though they had very minimal snacks/food for the trip as we only received one snack towards the end of the trip and one meal and it was an 8 hour flight. When I asked for extra snacks, they said there was none. This ruined my experience for me since I was hungry for most of the flight."
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."
Pros: "We got to our destination safely.."
Cons: "No frills flight, not even water. Had to be seated separately from my wife. Hard landing"
Cons: "British air sold seats on american but couldnt - or wouldnt- allow us to Book our seats ahead and together. We had to wait til boarding day and airport checkin. Shame on them. If theyre going to make money code sharing, then they better deliver!! Then the american flight's ent'mt didnt work nor reading lights. Hopefully you had a fully charged smart phone!"
Pros: "Check-in was very easy and actually quiet compared to the rest of the airport."
Cons: "When we walked into the airport (upper floor), I didn't see any signs directing me to British Airways. We walked a long ways and finally asked someone who said we must go downstairs. More signs would help."

Cons: "Plane got a little hot sitting at the gate and our seats were the only ones that didn't have air vents."
Pros: "Early, relaxed boarding process was excellent."

Cons: "€75 to check a bag PER PASSENGER"

Pros: "For the last flight of the day out of Paris, surprisingly the flight left on time and landed ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Had to wait for a bus to take us a very short distance to T5. The flight was packed - too many people with large carry-on cases."

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: "Really the only thing I've found that is good your staff on the flight it's self. The on board crew are very good. Everthing else pretty much makes it terrible."
Cons: "First off they quote you rate and you pay. Then you find out that you have to pay more just to request a seat. Complete move motivated by pure greed and manipulating us the consumer. Even more so if you don't go and request your seat 24hrs before the flight they automatically assign you the middle seat so they can go and sell the better window and aisle seats. This pretty much makes me want to never use your greedy airline again. Also when I was boarding I get stopped and told my carry on was to large. THE VERY SAME ONE I BROUGHT WITH ME. Why is it too big now? They really had no answer other than they told me I had to check it. The lady was verbally aggressive with me about it. After I was backing down only because I was afraid of losing my flight she then requested a CC saying I had to pay for it. I was literally pulling things out of my bag holding in my hand for my flight. She insisted I had to pay for it. I pointed out that my ticket included 2 bags to begin with and I only used one she said it doesn't matter because its to big for the plane I have to pay. I'm beyond furious now as I'm dropping stuff out of my hands trying to manage everything. I'd like to point out this is just a small gym bag and its a lot smaller than my carry on suite case which I'm frustrated. I'm pretty much pissed off the whole flight to only be more at the end. When the plane lands and I'm getting off I notice every single person has a carry on suite case all of which are much larger than my gym bag. My freaking gym bag fits in the tiny locker at the gym. I HATE BRITISH AIRLINES they only succeed at swindling money from you."
Cons: "Is way below par when compared to emirates or any other international airlines"
Cons: "2 hr delay in Paris very poor choice of movies"
Pros: "The staff was wonderful and went out of there way to make me comfortable"
Pros: "The trip was absolutely amazing. I have no complaints."
