Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Having social distance space to take a nap"
Cons: "I sat in the middle seat of the middle of the plane and the staff kept skipping me during meal and drink service because they assumed the other side took care of me. So that was annoying. I had to keep flagging them down."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "When a very large man is placed next to someone else who is in a middle seat and cannot use the arm rests on either side, I would think the hostesses would make an effort to move one of the three considering there were multiple other open seats. He was also very old and could hardly stand up when needed. It was the most uncomfortable flight, if I had the money, I would definitely fly business class"
Pros: "Crew is amazing"
Cons: "The Entertainment screen wasn’t working"
Pros: "The plane was new and spotless, the crew did everything possible to make the flight great. Food service, and Wine and Cocktails were always served with a smiling face and it made you think of flying many years ago. Service cleanliness of the restrooms and staff were top notch"

Cons: "Obviously the seat could have been roomier but still good."

Cons: "USB port was not working."
Cons: "Although the loading Zone was given as Zone 1, boarding was chaotic because the fround crew was incredibly inefficient. The announcement was totally mumbled and badly managed, Why cant the boarding at Cochin be organised like queues for each zone so that the passengers do not crowd in a mad rush near the gate as if the fliht will leave without them. As in Doha have different seating area for different zones and the ground crew should be trained to be firm to allow only passengers with boarding."

Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."
Pros: "Very friendly online travel booking portal. I like it"
Cons: "Luggage was lost"
Cons: "qatar airlines has some old airplanes foods are not good"
Pros: "Vegetarian food options"
Cons: "There is nowhere in the airport to go for long layovers. The ticket counter didn't open until closer to the flight, without it I couldn't get inside to the Travelers Lounge, and spent most of my time in the entry area. I also was assigned a middle seat, which is even less fun than usual when you've been in India and your bowels are acting wonky."
Pros: "Todo estuvo prfecto"
Cons: "La comida no es nada del otro mundo"
Pros: "Best thing is 2 free checked bags."
Cons: "Food and service in economy could be better. Nothing special about Qatar."
Cons: "The customer service of your company is the worst."
Cons: "The crew has no control over passengers. Specifically, it is the cabin supervisors responsibility to maintain order on the flight. Everyone before boarding, during boarding and during the flight kept sitting in incorrect seats, no boarding passes checked. Felt like a zoo on the airline. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Very nice service"
Cons: "No entertainment service from Doha to New York"
Pros: "Very friendly crew and efficient check-in service. Food was lovely."
Cons: "Multiple problems with onboard entertainment re-setting itself."
Cons: "I wish the 777 had slightly wider seats like the A380"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Managed to get a whole row to myself (bonus!)."
Cons: "Cheaper change fees. ;)"
Pros: "It was ok flight. Normal economy class flight. Nothing much to talk about"
Cons: "Emirates Airlines need to really pay attention to the kind of people they hire. A lot of times you will run into nice people in their counters and desks, until you run into a massive a$$hole. In this airline it is very common to find quite a few individuals that need re-training and re-education on how to deal with customers."
Cons: "Having Christian music to listen to on the flight as an option"
Cons: "Services of crew very poor specially onboard services in business class"
Pros: "Crew was kind, attentive, funny, and engaging. The best."
Cons: "A warning about landing in Dubai, and being put on a bus to the terminal"
Pros: "The tv shows and the games for the kids the monitor was large and they didn’t need an ipad to calm down"
Cons: "The food , i had better food in the Lufthansa they had jam butter pancakes and mostly a fluffy chewy piece of bread , also both choices were eggs one with cheese one with out !! Why not eggs or pancakes or maybe french toast or something arabic like flafel fool , also the dessert was dates! Not nice"
Pros: "Great customer service, great and always smiling crew, wonderful flight"
Cons: "the food options need to be more. an option with steamed rice should always be available"
Pros: "Crew was great. Boarding was great"
Cons: "Less air condition towards the end."
Pros: "The crew.. And the quality of the aircraft. Plus the on time departure and arrival was fantastic"
Cons: "The TV show collection was a bit of a letdown"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, new movies"
Cons: "Long wait after boarding before takeoff"
Pros: "Professional behavior of staff and overall cleanliness."
Pros: "I like the food, history, and the people contributing to make this country so beautiful."
Cons: "I wasn’t be able to experience everything in one trip so I have to go back again to fully live the history there."
Cons: "Baggage claim in Newark horrible and slow. Not the brightest people here."
Pros: "The staff was quite helpful in many ways and checking in was easy with online booking. For an economy flight, the quality of the food was good."
Cons: "I found it difficult to navigate the screen on the airline. Everything else was fine and I am happy with the airline."
Cons: "Broken seat levers, out of order headphones"
Cons: "The food was appalling and crew service very ordinary much inferior to Qantas. The seats are also uncomfortable"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Attentive crew. Good entertainment options"
Cons: "The toilet had no toilet paper so I used the paper hand towel and prayed it did not block when I flushed. The beef option was not that great. I should've chosen the chicken."
Pros: "Crew was excellent but seemed stretched ."
Cons: "Overall ICE was great but didn't seem to have many new films"
Cons: "The plane is great but the young gentlemen next to me is 300lb+(my best guest He's at least 6'2" possibly in his teen or early 20s) Don't get me wrong but to sit in coach for 14 hours with him in the middle seat is kind of a nightmare. Half of the way we all went to a bathroom and I don't blame him but the bathroom must be to small to clean up himself for I have to sit with feces smell for the rest of the flight. Imagine that. This is my second leg of this long flight from BKK to NYC. The first leg to dubai is horrible enough but this one top that by far!!!!"
Cons: "One carryon and no personal item - inconvenient and irritating! Security staff disposed of manicure scissors that met printed guidelines. Checked baggage was damaged, will avoid Emirates because of this. Staff, comfort, and food were very good, but will still select other airlines"
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "Everything from food to seating was quite comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit more difficult since they did not call boarding zones"
Cons: "They missed me for breakfast despite my being awake and trying to get their attention. Then they ran out of one of the choices for both dinner and breakfast. This despite the plane being less than capacity. Also there were so many empty seats in the back but I noticed that some people were still being packed in like the flight was full. Emirates should do a better job of assigning seats to make as many people comfortable as possible."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful. ICE entertainment onboard offered a wide veriety to choose from"
Cons: "The food was average"
Pros: "Business class entertainment and comfort very good."
Cons: "Service was very bad. I had to get up to go get drinks and rarely saw the steward."
Pros: "It would be useful if Emirates would allow us to reserve the adjoining seat of the 3 (on less than full flights) so that we can have the extra space."
Pros: "Beautiful, clean aircraft with multilingual staff-great entertainment choices"
Cons: "Nothing's ng"
Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "Thanks to the nice lady who gave up an Aisle seat so I could sit next to my daughter."
Cons: "Other people's kids are wiggly and annoying, and there were many! Not a seat empty in the huge plane. PThe staff did as best they could under the circumstances. But 17 hours of crowds are hard to take. Very rough landing, which I wouldn't mention except that I've had several on Emirates lately."
Pros: "Free upgrade given as skywards gold"
Cons: "ICE not as good as a380"
Cons: "That the plane can't do 2,000 mph and have us there in 1/4 the time :-)"
Pros: "Food Comfort"
Cons: "Flight was 30m late "probably not their fault" so I haven't received my luggages until the next day. I suggest keeping the layover hours a little longer than 1:30m"
Pros: "the food"
Pros: "Very comfortable and smooth ride new plane from SF to Dubail"
Cons: "Business class too expensive for individual travelers"
Cons: "we were delayed by 3 hours and missed our next flight to seattle, emirates did nothing to help us catch our next flight, even though it sat on the tarmac for 30 minutes while we were denied entry to the gate."
Pros: "Everything is very well organised"
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "wifi wasn't good - I couldn't connect. Wine choice wasn't good (white). Would have preferred a sav blanc"
Pros: "Service was too notch. Economy Class was a bit tight for such a long flight. Still a great experience. Thank you."
Pros: "First leg to Dubai was spacious and my vegan meal was really good. Second leg i got upgraded to business which was f'ing amaaaaazing, Emirates business is like nothing i could ever have imagined, 5 star service!"
Cons: "The hangover after drinkong copious amounts of Moet haha. So really nothing"
Pros: "In flight staff were great, very industrious, and very friendly. In-flight entertainment was the best I have come across on an economy seat."
Cons: "My check-in experience was concerning. I had an onward flight to Manila, but no onward flight from there. The airline policy had me not allowed to check in for my flight because of this. I narrowly avoided missing my flight by booking another flight just in time."
Pros: "The cabin crew was helpful with stashing my carry-on bag given how full the overhead bins were. Courteous crew and good meal options."
Cons: "Non-functioning overhead light from DBX to SEA."
Pros: "Good service on the plane. They pretty much gave you whatever you asked for. No charge for beverages, etc., even alcohol. The food provided was very good."
Cons: "On the outbound flight, the seat bottom was very hard as if the cushion had deteriorated. My behind was killing me very shortly into the 7+ hour flight and I sat on my neck pillow, which wasn't ideal but helped a little. The seat on the return flight was more comfortable."
Pros: "This was our first trip to Europe using Emirates airline. It was perfect. Low price, excallent meals & service aboard. All staff very professional & helpful. Check in at airports were a breeze. Will definitely use Emirates again & recommend to family & friends."
Pros: "Crew v good"
Cons: "Food .. Fish undercooked ... Aircraft bit dated"
Pros: "The attendants were great at keeping the cabin clean and were very goo with the kids. Loads of activities and unexpected surprises that really pleased my kids."
Cons: "More regular offerings of drinks."
Cons: "flight got delayed 17 hours"
Cons: "The complimentary food coupons don't clearly mention what is covered and not and it is a hassle to figure out with airport vendors on what the meal means when there are a lot of options. If the voucher also has a dollar value it will make it easier to know. The Indian restaurants at Gates C should be taken off this list. They were rude and generally left a bad taste in the mouth."
Cons: "I and my friend booked together but we had to sit separate. All round trip. What the hell? The plane wasnt even full."
Pros: "Good collection Should provide ear plugs, eye bands etc for long journeys."
Cons: "They collect headsets too early."
Pros: "I purchased business class food was uneatble cald sandwich"
Cons: "Staff unfriendly"
Pros: "I’ve been very disappointed with the lack of cleanliness of the aircraft and the disregard of the aircraft overall. It was quite old, fair enough, but there where some missing pieces here and there that didn’t make me feel safe. The flight overall was good, British Airways crew are always very competent and professional, which is the reason why I mainly fly with BA. But this is the first time I had some concerns on the lack of safety checks especially because I travelled with my 2 years old son."
Cons: "Please see answer above. The aircraft should have been maintained."
Pros: "Crew and pilot great."
Cons: "Toilet was dirty."
Cons: "Rude staff"
Cons: "The phone number to contact BA in Italy started with 02, didn’t work with a cell phone needs a country code. The check in staff were ok, but the disability support staff in both Rome and London were EXCELLENT and the cabin crew were great."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Pros: "Pilot was informing us about the reason for slight delay. Can not comment on food or entertainment ."
Cons: "British Airways introduced boarding by groups Inspite of my plea for my husband who recently undergone heart surgery he had to stand and queu until our group number was allowed to enter the plane. We have been told very firmly by taciturn lady at Fumicino Rome that this are new rules nad they are to be obeyed! compassion is not forte in our experience of British Airways."
Cons: "My daughter and I were bumped off flight. We also had problems checking in. Luckily Alitalia were able to accommodate"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant enough"
Cons: "British airways is always delayed, I never make my connection, I had to be rescheduled on the way there and on the way home"
Cons: "They even charge for water, just like Easy Jet and the low price airlines. BA doesn’t accept US credit cards online, nor do they accept cash. The simple drink service takes forever. I feel sorry for the flight attendants who have to fill out paper credit card forms if you present an American credit card. It’s like we are back in the 1970s. Ridiculous. It’s a $45/bag charge to check your bag. That’s almost double the standard $25 for American carriers. May try to avoid BA in the future."
Pros: "That there was help from the beginning to the end of the flight."
Pros: "made up some time in the air so we werent as late as we were delayed."
Cons: "No TVs!! in 2018? on a large airplane? C'mon. Old plane with no-seatback entertainment. just tiny screens many rows up, on the bulkhead. Terrible. One offering for beverages then never saw the flight crew again. Flight delayed by close to an hour. even with making up time we landed late. big issue for me due to connections."
Cons: "Left late. Was told we would still arrive on time. Sat waiting for a gate to open which took all most 45 minutes. We had 12 minutes to depart, go through security and RUN to another terminal and navigate a foreign AirPort and run onto a BA plane that we were told would not wait for the numerous passengers trying to reach the plane. And then sat for over 30 minutes on the plane while the "luggage" was being loaded. Then was told our luggage never made it to our plane. Given both flights were BA I was totally disappointed for this short-term anxiety that was unnecessary."
Pros: "flight crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Appeared that there was some inconsistencies in what was allowed to be carried-on. When I checked in, my roller-bag suitcase carry-on was not allowed to be carried on and it made me scramble at the last minute to grab items I wanted for in-flight use. The odd thing was that the flight was less than half full and there was lots of storage space. Plus a young male was allowed to board with a very large duffel bag (larger than my roller), an over-sized skate board, and a personal backpack and a pillow."
Pros: "London to Chicago on British Airways was excellent. We were late for the scheduled flight due to a connection issue - but were able to just make boarding. Luggage did not make it. Crew and service was excellent on the Airbus B380."
Pros: "On time. Nice scenery. Cordial crew. All food costs extra. Completely full. Glad it was only 2 hrs."
Cons: "All food costs extra. Seats cost money (no thanks, I’ll stand). Every seat booked, so i suspect some didn’t make it."
Pros: "I recently had a difficult time returning to Italy and the part of the journey handled by BA was excellent. They were kind and helpful."
Cons: "I had to purchase a cup of coffee."
Pros: "The crew on the flight was pleasant."
Cons: "The flight was over an hour late off the ground and we’d held up in the air for another 1/2 hour. Connections missed, very disappointed."
Pros: "Hillary Swank happened to be on our flight..."
Cons: "Like all of the flights we had with British Airways, it was delayed. Flight delays happen all of the time but the real issue was that there was very little information shared with us as to why, how long, etc. We ended up sitting on the tarmac for more than an hour without so much as an offer of water by the crew. When we did get into the air, it took the crew a full hour to reach all of the rows with refreshments, none of which (including water) were complimentary."
Cons: "It took FOREVER to get our boarding passes. We did wind up checking our bags, but there was no option to do self check and have boarding passes printed at a kiosk, so everyone had to go through the line and the line was incredibly slow. There were just as many lines for people who had checked in online and just needed to drop their bags - this made no sense to me! There should only have been one line for that and the rest should have been dedicated to getting the rest of the passengers checked in."
Pros: "Plane was good, Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Would only give us boarding passes to LHR, not to LAX so we had a short connection, a late plane and still had to stand in a customer service line in LHR to get boarding passes. Made the conncection but it was a long run through the airport."
Pros: "Food and service were great!"
Cons: "Babies crying, hate flying with Babies! Guy behind me kept pulling and kicking my seat, pain in the aaa!"
Cons: "I paid money when I requested seat assignment online. I’m not sure what I paid for as our seats were standard."
Cons: "I find it hard to believe that BA requires passengers to purchase basic needs like water. That was a huge disappointment."
Pros: "The food and staff were great."
Pros: "The airline attendants were very nice and helpful. I had to stow my backpack in the overhead since I was sitting in a front seat with no underseat storage. The flight attendant was very helpful in finding a storage place for me near my seat since I was unable to find a place that wasn't towards the rear of the plane. I've always enjoyed flying with British Airways. Always first class service no matter where you sit."
Cons: "I have no complaints about my flight."
Cons: "I was sat in a row with two adults and one young child that was all over? I paid full price for my seat not to share it with a family of 3."
Pros: "I loved the comfy seats in world class. We were bumped up and had a nice 10 he flight home."
Cons: "The boarding process needs help. Lines are needed not a mad dash with a huge group of people."
Pros: "Switch to Qatar Airlines"
Cons: "We were delayed getting out of Rome, making our connection a little stressful."
Pros: "Service levels were high and good humored as usual, cabin was clean and reasonably comfortable."
Cons: "Apart from still objecting to the principle of treating non-Business class customers like the budget airlines, the food selection on European flight leg was ok, but sales system is so slow and laborious that in future I'll probably buy in the departures terminal and carry on board."
Cons: "Crew was not helpful at the end of the flight when we had a very short turnaround time due to delay and my girlfriend had to run to catch the other flight and she has recently had hip surgery. The crew was asked 3 times for help and their response was "you will be fine". We were not fine also the security crew at Heathrow was incredibly slow and there were 3 standing around talking and one very slow very rude lady going through bags which caused us also to be delayed and have to run to catch connecting flight to SF just barely made it - totally unacceptable."
Pros: "Left late but arrived on time"
Cons: "Had to pay for water (unless you wanted bathroom water) and juice or coffee."
Cons: "One flight attendant had so much perfume on every time she stopped by it was drowning our sinuses."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic, food and drinks were of a very decent standard."
Cons: "Boarding was in a cramped corner so a bit confusing, no enetertainment at all on a (very) old plane."
Pros: "We fly a lot, over 20 flights last year. I was very disappointed in this flight. No water was offered during the entire flight (2 and 1/2 hrs). We had to track down a steward to buy a bottle of water and some lunch. At checkin I was told my new suitcase, a Travel pro carryon was too big to take on. As we boarded I saw many people with bigger carryons. Who makes these rules so inconsistently? On the positive side, we had very comfortable seats, but I did pay extra for them!!"
Cons: "The landing was horrible. Skidded and rough, glad to get off this plane. Not sure I will fly BA again."
Cons: "The ground crew did not give timely updates about the flight delay, which was rather stressful, considering I had a short layover in London."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed in London 3 hours while we already boarded due to a dent on a door and need of repair. B/c of this missed connecting flight in LA and your airline did not replace us with a new flight or accommodation. Had to pay for own accommodation over night and new flight thru different airline NEXT morning."
Pros: "Comfortable flight. Loved the free movies!"
Cons: "We races to get to the plane from connecting flight that was late getting in. Then we sat on the plane 2+ hours duew to tire needing replaced, then the air was not working so it was terribly hot and stuffy, then the movie system was not working. Wish we could have gotten off plane during delay. Long flight to begin with, sitting for 2 extra hours was not fun. With all that being said, I am glad they took care of the issues and that our safety was first. Once we got in the air, a very good flight!"
Pros: "Hard to say after they lost my luggage, cramped space, no leg room because of electronics box under seat, then the person in front of me decided to recline all the way back on a 12 hour flight. So I lost my luggage, and had some smelly stranger practically laying on my lap for 12 hours. Talk about insult to injury!"
Cons: "They forced me to check my bag, even before I boarded the plane and said there wouldn't be any room. Then they lost my bag. Worst thing I ever did was listen to the lady at the ticketing booth! Also, the way they do boarding is a total joke. All they care about is their first class passengers. For the rest, it's a free for all! Terrible, even Southwest has more organization! Sputhwest might not have assigned seating, but they're much more organized and significantly cheaper. How do you lose someone's luggage British Airways?!?!?!!!"
Cons: "We were asked to check in our luggage as there was not sufficient space in the cabin which obviously delayed our plans of getting a train to other location from the airport after lading as we had to collect the bags etc"
Pros: "Usual BA - professional service"
Cons: "I cannot believe you have to pay for your drinks now. The only thing which made BA one of the last remaining "experience" airlines has now made it become like a normal train journey. I'd prefer to pay 10 pounds more in my ticket and still have the impression my drinks, soft or not, are offered."
Cons: "I was surprised that I had to put some "crisps" on my credit card (and a bottle of water, despite being severely dehydrated for other reasons) - they can't throw a bag of peanuts our way anymore? Help a brotha out!"
Pros: "Better seats and space"
Cons: "New M&S menu, makes service too slow and the items are mediocre."
Pros: "Landed on time. Boarded via an air bridge (no bus)"
Cons: "BA have done away with food and replaced this with a packet of crisps or a biscuit and will soon be changing for food"
Cons: "I have both celiac and a mushroom allergy -- no meal option was proviided to accommodate both. Sure enough, my gluten-free meal contained mushrooms. (It's surprising to me that, since celiacs often have other food allergies/sensitivities, the meal contained a pretty common allergen.) Stuff happens sometimes, but it felt a bit as if the flight attendant felt inconvenienced by my inability to eat the meal. Also, usually disabled passengers are given the opportunity to pre-board -- the wheelchair didn't arrive until quite late, so I was one of the last people, if not the last, on the flight, something that makes getting settled a lot more difficult than when I've been allowed to pre-board. I realize that wheelchair attendants are employed by the airport, not the airline, but he gate agent seemed unconcerned about the fact that nobody had arrived to pick up wheelchair passengers despite the fact that everyone else was already boarding. Finally, the flight departed/arrived quite late, which meant that I had about 10 minutes to spend in the Heathrow Club World lounge before having to wait for a wheelcehair attendant to take me to my connecting flight."
Cons: "Our BA flight from Rome to Paris was operated by Vueling. Vueling staff in Rome lacked knowledge of whether or not our bags could be transferred properly to our BA connection and onto our home city. Our bags did not connect and arrived 2 days after we did. Vueling desks were extremely unorganized, staff were not helpful, and boarding the plane after 2 buses hauled the passengers far out onto the concourse was a nightmare. We love BA, but we will never again purchase a flight where Vueling is involved."
