Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew and entertainment"
Cons: "Food and legroom"
Pros: "Emirates really knows how to treat customers"
Cons: "Flight was long"
Pros: "Good service by Emirates"
Pros: "The travel kits are much nicer now, appreciated the mattress"
Cons: "The boarding process in ORT was a horrible fail. they didn't announce the boarding of first/business and by the time I arrived at my seat there was almost no overhead room left because people from economy put there bags in the business area. The bathroom was definitely not cleaned enough, I went twice where the floor was soaked, the seat was wet and the sink full of toothpaste. I understand that every passenger should be responsible enough to clean up after themselves, but it was not an enjoyable experience. The crew was friendly enough, but it didnt feel like the personalized service experience that is usually the case (where they introduce themselves, explain the do not disturb sticker etc). Also I think there was something wrong with my seat because it didnt "lay flat" all the way."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Upgrade to Business class"
Pros: "I love the positive and can-do attitude of your crew"
Cons: "A 4 year old banging on the back of my seat"
Pros: "A380 flight was very comfortable, with adequate leg room. A great feature for long haul flights. Good food and a very good entertainment system"
Cons: "Good was served late, in both legs. Flight departs at 7 pm but diiner was served after 10 (midnight Dubai time) Which meant our sleep was disturbed and when breakfast was served we had a full stomach."
Cons: "Did not happen. Flight was purchased fraudulently and fortunately was caught by Emirates and Amex. Please REMOVE all my contact information from your website"
Pros: "excellent staff and friendly flight attendant."
Cons: "i wish next time the flight will includes a hotel for the over night stay. I had to sleep on the seats at the airport."

Cons: "The food was average"
Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "We will highly recommend to use this airline. We will try again to flight to any city that we know they will have connections . Is worth it to plan to stay a few days in Dubai. Is a great city , unique, different."
Pros: "Flight was quiet and very well organized"
Cons: "I normally choose vegetarian on all my flights, but emirates only has a strictly vegetarian option. Which means vegan - food was not good at all. Sometimes too spicy to even try to eat. I asked to replace my meal on occasion and took the continental breakfast which was great."
Pros: "the food was wonderful, the economy seats were comfy, and the service was superb. I really liked being able to watch movies and listen to music w/o a charge."
Pros: "The great content in the entertainment system and the wifi. Bed was comfortable and the service was fantastic. I also really enjoyed the bar in the upper deck. The A380 is a wonderful machine!"
Pros: "I say that everything was good but overall "excellent" because it is hard to fly for hours upon hours and say that it was excellent. All considered, it was good while Emirates (compared to other carriers) is excellent. These huge airplanes are amazing!"
Cons: "Flying for hours upon hours but nobody can do anything about that. Africa has a routine, including this flight, of filling the cabin full of chemicals - for insects? Prepare to cover your head and face!"
Pros: "I liked watching movies and drinking wine and the food was decent."
Cons: "We took off over an hour late with no communication as to why we were sitting on the runway. Most of the crew seemed annoyed and short with everyone."
Pros: "The comfortable seats, the entertainment system, the food, the attention given by the flight attendants. A great airline!"

Pros: "Space and the fact that everything worked. Food was excellant."

Cons: "None comes to mind"

Cons: "Had to rush to the next flight in Dubai."
Pros: "The crew were excellent. Very helpful and professional."
Cons: "All good!"
Pros: "Food and Entertainment beat Delta hands down."
Cons: "Unfortunately packed into a row with a lot of big guys"
Pros: "It was just ok overall."
Cons: "The first flight was late by over an hour and nobody could tell us why. They also serve food once and you don't get a snack or anything--you don't even see the attendants--for another 10 hours. Then they serve breakfast close to an hour before landing. The crew is constantly telling you to sit as if you weren't allowed to use the toilet at all when the seatbelt sign is on--and it's on the whole time. So you have to be asking permission to use the toilet when you are right next to the toilet door and about to go in because they don't allow you to use it. That's not healthy for someone to hold it."
Pros: "I will only fly Emirates when available to my destination from now on."
Pros: "Up to date movies"
Cons: "The boarding in riyadh airport was crowded because it included all economy class travelersat once, it should start from A category till the last group. This should be rectified."
Pros: "I liked the boarding and most the crew was excellent"
Cons: "I specified ovo Lacto vegetarian because I eat cheese and diary. I got a stale and very small bread role with strawberry jam, wilted fruit and margarine for the breakfast meal. The non vegetarians got a full plate of croissant, cheese, fruit and jams. When I asked for butter I got no response. I asked three times before I could get some butter as I do not eat margarine. Lunch was wilted and slimy lettuce and tired fruit for dessert. The main meal itself was delicious but I was hungry the whole flight due to the small helping.. Another small but slightly fresher role and margarine again. Next to the non vegetarian meal there was less than half the food. It was very disappointing."
Pros: "Movies and internet"
Cons: "Took too long for food service. We were in middle two seats and my partner was feed and finished before I even got my food. They should go down each side at same time."
Pros: "Crew attitude and helpfulness. Food and beverage."
Cons: "Boarding procedures. Inadequate bathrooms for passenger numbers. Seat width. No economy plus seating."
Pros: "The wrap-around head rests help with sleeping. The good size blanket was comfortable and kept me warm. I really liked the bigger entertainment screen and excellent choice of movies and TV programs. I've never had 'Homes International' and 'Don't tell the Bride' on any flights, which are favorites of mine and are very popular.. I fly on 16 flights/year domestic and international. The flight attendants were very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "It was a bit too cold. I was in row 50 on the aisle. I am vegetarian so was pleasantly surprised with the fish curry being on the menu, but couldn't see or taste the fish. A bit disappointing."
Pros: "Both flights were amazing the service in both were excellent including crews too"
Cons: "Is from Jhb to Dubai were not Cartered for our foot socks had to were shoes to keep warm regards the long flight, and cover our eyes too ,but every thing was the best regards that only"
Pros: "Spacious seats..comfortable flight and great on board service"
Pros: "Good crew lots of food and open bar."
Pros: "Modern plane, good announcements, Fantastic entertainment system"
Cons: "Cabin staff were surprisingly average. They were pleasant, professional, but spent much of the time talking to themselves and not focused on the needs of the passengers. Heads up, I travel 100K a year, mostly Asian airlines so my bar is high. I checked with my colleagues and they all said they same thing. It was a real surprise. I flew four legs on Emirites."
Cons: "My row was passed 4 out of the 5 times drinks went by. To say the least I was a bit thirsty on the flight."
Pros: "The variety of classical music selection in ICE system is amazing. Immensely appreciated. PERFECT landing"
Cons: "The beverages were served way after the meal"
Pros: "Emirates is the best airline I have ever flown. Comfort, pleasant flight attendants, great entertainment system, good food, very comfortable seating. Great lounges on the ground. Would fly them again wherever they go."
Pros: "I like all the entertainment that was provided."
Pros: "Plenty of room, entertainment excellent, staff wonderfully friendly and helpful. I fly many times (in Economy) and having all the options be excellent never happens."
Pros: "Personal attention, friendly smiles, and really the crew couldn't do enough for their passengers. The entertainment was brilliant. Loved the quality screens. Thank you Emirates!"
Pros: "Every thing flight was good good was good and service was good too"
Pros: "I was fortunate enough to get an emergency exit seat."
Cons: "The emergency exit seat was near the galley so they made a huge racket all night and I couldn't get any rest. Additionally, the service in our section of the plane was truly inferior. It took a long time to serve the meals and even longer to remove the plates. I'm also assuming they skipped us on some of the meals and drinks. Wasn't great."
Pros: "The crew was great and the free entertainment was great"
Cons: "Bring back pillows and blankets especially on red eyes out of Anchorage"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and completely packed so our family could not get seats together"
Cons: "No meal option and my video screen volume did not work"
Pros: "Not comfortable a little but scary on the flight to Detroit. Way better coming back to Denver"
Pros: "great crew!"
Cons: "luggage. what a nightmare. I waited 30min for my luggage (after a delayed flight) only to be told by a fellow PASSENGER that some of our luggage was directed to a FRONTIER CAROUSEL. I then had to wait by that carousel till I found it. so much for "bags in 20min guaranteed""
Cons: "Boarding at JFK.Always messy"
Pros: "Inflight experience was fine. TVs didn’t work but Flight attendants are friendly on Delta, cramped seating - but not unlike other airlines."
Cons: "Regular fare seat assignment not available prior to gate . Airport concourse F - poor - limited services. Customer Service seemed uninterested and unable to provide service both on phone and at gate. I’m a frequent United flyer & today’s Delta service experience made me more loyal to UA."
Pros: "Early and middle seat was open!"
Cons: "Coffee tasted like fish. :("
Pros: "We boarded close to on time, no hassles. Allowed my husband and me (retired military) to board early, thank you."
Cons: "LAX security is awful. We never left the airport (arrived LAX from Sydney AU) yet were forced thru security again. Had to remove shoes, was scanned and "frisked" by TSA to get to Denver. To go to Australia, Denver TSA waived the removal of shoes, skipped the scan for the metal detector and no one touched me, ditto for LAX on the trip to Sydney. Where's the uniformity or standards for TSA?? Why did I have to be subjected to this garbage on the way home?? This is why I despise flying. It makes no sense to me. This ruined what was a great vacation."
Pros: "Not much. Boarding by "zone" works ok, but is no quicker than most other boarding methods."
Cons: "Boeing 767-400ER seats had no leg room for 6'+ traveller like me. The entertainment system was so old that there were no 115v outlets or USB ports. On a 7-hour flight, that is a significant problem for travellers today with multiple electronic devices. Finally, we were not told in advance that we had to go through security twice and through US Customs BEFORE leaving Dublin. So, the 6-hour layover at JFK was a complete waste of our time as we did not have to go through Customs there."
Pros: "Free drinks and snacks - great entertainment system (please read this Frontier)!"
Cons: "Boarding process was agonizingly slow and ineffective"
Pros: "Everyone who has a kid knows how challenging certain things can be in a flight and for me the combination of a night flight interrupting my baby’sschedule + a full flight it equalized disaster. My daughter could not get comfortable for the love of life and I just felt horrible and frustrated and what sucked most was the 9 year old and her obese father siting in our row that kept giving us weird looks."
Cons: "There’s NO room in planes between seats. It’s 2018 and new planes must be done ASAP to accommodate people better. I’m 5’1” and 110 lbs but adding my 25lb daughter siting in my lap before she turns 2 is absurd to expect that it will be comfortable whatsoever for us or the people breathing next to us. Please DELTA, lead by example and make sure your planes are designed with more room in between and around the seats. In my opinion, every seat should be first class."
Pros: "In a pinch they were able t"
Pros: "Everything was perfect !! Staff friendly"
Pros: "Great in every way"
Pros: "It got me home, eventually."
Cons: "Poor communication, a 6 hour delay followed by a 7 hour layover (during which we had to sleep on an airport floor because Delta couldn't offer us any hotel vouchers). Gate agents disappeared after 7pm becuase they were due to be done with their shifts when our flight was originally supposed to leave at 6 pm. It felt like we were trapped in the movie The Terminal. Oh! And our bag was misrouted, because that was just how things went those 2 days. All in all a 6 hour trip turned into 18 hours. I could have driven home in that amount of time!"
Cons: "Check in lines were crazy long"
Pros: "First leg from San Diego was excellent."
Cons: "Arriving in SLC discovered out flight to Denver was CANCELLED! Had to reschedule to the next day. Not fun!"
Pros: "The entertainment unit allowed me to watch the Denver Broncos game live which helped lessen the delayed departure and uncomfortable seating."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating....too crowded!! We had a delayed departure by 30-40 minutes because of a computer download issue. Too many folks carrying carry-ons delayed boarding. I wish folks were not encouraged to go that route but to check baggage. This time of year gets even tougher with folks carrying Christmas presents and over sized personal items. Ugh. Not fun to travel this time of year."
Pros: "App is good and convenient to use."
Cons: "The app went down just as we were getting ready to board and luckily i had a printed pass and it took some extra time to check in."
Cons: "Older plane and seemingly frustrated crew. They had very little patience."
Pros: "really helpful and friendly service and nice seats."
Cons: "We left late, it was delayed then maintenance issues. Twice. Seating was very tight and uncomfortable, no movies or entertainment at all. U.S. flights are the worst. Even on short flights with aeromexico outside the U.S. you get movies and food. Zero stars for comfort, food and entertainment."
Cons: "I don't like that I already completed this survey several days ago and have been receiving reminders to do so. I guess you don't have a good system in place for knowing who has and has not completed your surveys. That's too bad."
Pros: "The plane, crew was clean, newer and had TV's in the backrests. Remember to bring headphones! Seats are tight, but the crew was friendly and may the flight experience positive."
Pros: "Friendliness of staff. Second flight was a newer plane - sweet!"
Cons: "For a long flight perhaps a little more in the snack department."
Pros: "Crew was all very nice"
Cons: "Flying is always uncomfortable"
Pros: "Not much to like here. The new crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Old crew was surly. Plane had much problems and finally replaced. Left 5 hrs late. Delta claims it doesn't have to compensate for a late flight - just a cancelled one so guess which this was The baggage fees are obscene and the gouging of the customer is immoral. No wonder people hate the airlines."
Cons: "Excellent service excellent pilot"
Pros: "Overall, the flight was very smooth and I thought the crew did a great job."
Cons: "I know this is a federal regulation, but I have to mention it as it is part of the boarding process. For the life of me, I can't understand why it is necessary to go through security again after re-entering the country. Understandable that I have to go through customs, but going through security again is ridiculous."
Pros: "Flights were both on time and boarded quickly. Crew was wonderful!"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Seats too close. Food lacks salads. Fruit salad tasteless--fruit not ripe--looks good, but no taste."
Pros: "Free in flight entertainment"
Cons: "One of my bags went to Santa Fe"
Pros: "Early arrival. And service"
Cons: "I was assigned very last seat and there is no reclining option."
Cons: "long wait and delayed flight"
Pros: "WiFi, good flight attendants"
Cons: "Would like to see Direct TV along with Delta Suite so can watch live TV"
Pros: "From the Ground crew to the Flight crew, you can feel the genuine care and thoughtfulness of everyone! They even remember you, if you fly often enough, and let you know how much they appreciate your business."
Pros: "Very professional and caring."
Pros: "plane had individual movies for free with each seat!"
Cons: "Flight was repeatedly delayed. Ended up being over 3 hours late to depart due to weather. Another delay due to mechanical problems."
Cons: "I've only experienced delayed flights with Delta ... and this was no exception. It wasn't weather-related, nor a late flight delivering a plane - just no ground crew to service the plane between flights."
Pros: "nice snack"
Pros: "Drinks were passed out twice while everyone was waiting due to flight delay. There was one flight attendant that was awesome. I had asked for coffee due to migraine. I was stuck in the last row, back of the plane & had seen other people with coffee. The flight attendant told me no, I would have to wait for 3 more hours for coffee at breakfast. A smiling face showed up within minutes & asked if I wanted coffee. She told me that when she hears someone else say "no" that she thinks it should always be "yes". She was the African American flight attendant (wish I would have got her name). She brought me coffee, offered tylenol & checked in on me again later."
Cons: "Food wasn't very good. Most of the service was fair at best, crew, no smiles, looked irritable. Our flight had been delayed about 4-5 hrs so passengers & staff grumpy. Poor selections on the movies. No charging stations in the seat. This plane was very noisy so I was really glad to have noise cancelling headphones. Very expensive to select seats as it was bought through a non-Delta site to get the desired connections."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived early. Great cabin service, attentive and polite. Comfort Plus seats are worth the extra few bucks."
Cons: "Nothing. Low rating for entertainment only because there really wasn't any, but I wouldn't have used it anyway, so no big deal."
Pros: "All went as planned and expected. No thrill- like taking a Greyhound bus in the old days...gets you where you are going but without much pizzazz New seats and quite clean, but the new seats were very hard and uncomfortable after an hour."
Cons: "Somewhat claustrophobic and always wish the drop down tray table behind could be disconnected from my seat. When the passenger behind uses the tray as a set of bongo drums to keep beat with his headphones it is a pretty miserable trip."
Pros: "The only airline that I'm aware of that still offers: • free snacks • free checked bags • free meal and drinks on international flights"
Pros: "I appreciated that everyone gave us updates constantly to let us know the status of the flights"
Cons: "My flight from Detroit to Denver was suppose to land at 1:15 ish and I had an interview to make at 3:30 thinking that I would have plenty of time to grab my bags and and get a cab to greenwood which is where my interview was. The flight was delays almost 3 hours and I was not able to make my interview which was the whole reason I flew to Denver in the first place. I understand that things happen but now Im out of a possible job that I was interviewing for and I am also out the $250 that I spent on the flight. The flight was delayed because they didn't have a crew to fly the plane which blindside is always 20/20 however it seems like pretty poor planning."
Pros: "The service."
Cons: "Seats too close together."
Pros: "Nice comfortable plane"
Cons: "Late by HOURS!!!"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable"
Cons: "Missed so there was none Spent night in Minic"
Pros: "Service. Smooth flight."
Pros: "Crew and food were fine and movie and tv options not bad"
Cons: "Music options were lacking"
Pros: "Flying premier economy. Flight was on time...no crying babies. Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Long lines to get through boarding"
Pros: "Great flight crew, inflight entertainment and food"
Cons: "Damaged bag...working with airline to get replacement"
Pros: "Good Service , and overall friendly crew"
Cons: "Automaten Check in / boarding Cards, is hard for some people and took really long . Extra help on these machines would be good"
Pros: "I didn’t go see above"
Cons: "The seats are too close. When reclined it's not possible to get out."
Cons: "The flight was transferred to a smaller plane, either because there were few passengers (the first story we heard) or because of mechanical problems on the original craft (the second story). Business class was oversold as a result, and boarding was delayed for an hour while they waited for enough BC passengers to accept 800 euros for the downgrade to economy plus. They repeatedly threatened to cancel the flight rather than raise the offer. Eventually enough knuckled under and we were allowed to leave. Some no doubt missed connections because of this petty brinkmanship. The funny coda is that because the plane was so undersold, anyone in economy that wanted their own row could have one, while economy plus was packed with the embittered and downgraded."
Cons: "Bought these tickets almost a year in advance. Never given the option to select seats. Both my husband and I were stuck in the middle seats or not together on each leg of our flight. Food was horrible on every leg. Husbands tv did not work. I am petite and seats too small even for me. never again will o give this airline my money."
Pros: "Kayak had good e emails with updates and reminders. Lufthansa was a great suorline for its care of its passengers."
Pros: "All airplane was on time"
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "I loved the TVs, food, and the service. The TV's had so much to watch, and made the time pass so much faster. The service was amazing! They came by so often to give us whatever we needed! Great experience!"
Pros: "Great service and flight crew"
Cons: "Air didn't work, stewardess were rude"
Pros: "The staff was so accommodating and friendly! Great trip!"
Cons: "Regular economy felt a little cramped."
Pros: "The aircraft was clean. The service was great. Food was OK. I enjoyed the wine service. Lots of movie choices. HOW does one get "bumped up" to Premium Economy?"
Cons: "The seats in Economy were the most uncomfortable I have ever sat in for such a long time nine and a half hours. All six of us found them to be uncomfortable. No seat bottom cushioning. I had a back pain. Boarding started with the First Class and Business Class first. It took an additional 20 minutes for Economy class to start boarding. The line was very, very long and interfered with other travelers in the airport terminal. "boarding area to Frankfurt was cramped" When we arrived in Denver, only five Custom Agents were on duty to process our arrival passports, although there are 14 control stations at Denver. It appeared as though the Custom Agents were not aware of the arrival of the Lufthansa 747 nor the one that followed. All other Custom in Europe were much more efficient and move people through quickly. What a bad first impress made by the USA Customs people."
Pros: "Lufthansa is by far the best airline. All crew members were very friendly and attentive. Food was also great."
Pros: "the crew was amazing: friendly and caring"
Pros: "great food ,service"
Pros: "the woman who helped me at the boarding gate was great! Lounge was really nice!"
Pros: "The energetic crew who served with a smile"
Cons: "The tea was not strong and was served lukewarm and movies not up to standard.how about new blankets...and food only a choice between 2...chicken or pasta..why not beef or mutton?"
Pros: "I enjoyed it."
Pros: "Very comfortable"
Pros: "great entertainment on monitors at seat. kept us full with two full meals and a snack. came around with beverages often. seats very comfortable with leg room and reclining"
Pros: "Great customer service by flight attendants and the food."
Pros: "I like Lufthansa. They really know how to take care of their passengers."
Pros: "They know what they're doing!!"
Cons: "No complaints at all!"
Cons: "I did not like the bathroom downstairs."
Pros: "Great food, entertainment, comfort, and crew."
Cons: "Our layover was too short and going through customs, transferring our bag, then going through security again made us miss our connecting United flight."
Cons: "Boarding in Frankfurt was just short of a free for all."
Cons: "Same as Abu e"
Pros: "Lots of movies"
Cons: "£20 for unlimited wifi. Ridiculous"
Pros: "SAS and BA can do better"
Pros: "fllight attandants were very pleasant"
Cons: "Can they turn the heat up. So cold!"
Pros: "Nonstop flight."
Cons: "The seats are the most uncomfortable I've ever sat in. The food from Frankfurt to Denver was subpar. The first 2 hours were very bumpy and unusual for that part of an Europe to USA crossing. The spacing of the middle seats with the support struts having to straddle for 13 hours is too much. I could go on, but you really need to rethink the design and customer service on your long haul flights."
Pros: "Hope to make today's flight home! Time will tell."
Pros: "Attentive staff & crew, very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The sound did not work on my video panel, either with my personal headphones or the ones they handed out, so I could not watch any programming- the input jack was messed up. Seat 27H, Flight LH480"
Cons: "It was a great second experience"
Pros: "Still loads of leg room in economy which is great for a tall person like myself."
Cons: "The food, dinner and breakfast from Johannesburg to Frankfurt was not very nice and not the usual good standard."
Cons: "The seat in front of mine was reclined in the already cramped space provided, twice as far back as any other seat I could see. Please look into the recline on that seat for future passengers. The crew hit my seat, repeatedly with their carts and did not remember to offer drinks to us as they pushed it by. The airlines should consider removing that seat as an option to passengers if there is not ample room for the flight crew to maneuver around it. It made for an unpleasant experience overall."
Pros: "Punctual departure, cabin crew were generally efficient and pleasant. The airshow (flight routing details) programme is one of the best I've experienced on any airline...."
Cons: "Boarding was a 'free-for-all' with no filtering of Economy passengers by zone or seat row. Less effective than Emirates in this regard. The hot snack offered before arrival at Denver was served in the final 50 minutes of the 10 plus hour flight. This meant that the service and tray collection, including the cabin preparation for landing was very rushed."
Pros: "You'r aamazing, great deals! Thank you!"
Pros: "Jumbo plane was comfortable."
Cons: "The long lines to renter back to the state at imigration"
Pros: "Special treat for King's Day Friendly crew"
Cons: "15 min late boarding 30 min delay leaving the gate Very little leg room"
Pros: "10 hour flight - I was well looked after, regular drinks, the food and snacks were good enough and tasty. The in flight entertainment was good - latest movies and worked a great variety of tv, books and movies. The airplane was modern and comfortable"
Pros: "Flight was delayed by over three hours."
Pros: "Fine as delta flights go"
Pros: "Not time departure and cabin crew were effective and efficient."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "On-time Quick boarding Friendly staff"
Cons: "Only pre-security lounge (Air France) that is open till 19:00."
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."
Pros: "The delightful crew members on KLM flights always make the experience the best. From the crew at check desks, to those greeting you as you board and throughout the flight, they are the reason I continue to fly with them. I love how they have bassinets for those traveling with babies. the adventure packs for children and the never ending smiles and treats for the rest of us."
Cons: "This time I was turned away as a Sky Priority Member, and told there are too many categories at boarding and told my Silver Status (after this flight was bumped to Gold). Not sure what has changed in the last 2 weeks."
Pros: "Very good flight.I recommend it to everyone."
Pros: "Nice and careful crew that resulted in a good service that includes: * cleam restrooms; * light food and beverages avalable in the back of the airplane during all the flight;"
Cons: "Seats are terrible; Old Entertainment system that feels the weigh of time; Old airplane that makes scary sounds when engines are starting; In the day flight, the lights are not dimmed to help passagers to sleep in this 11 hours flight;"
Cons: "No internet available (2020). For the my previous flight, a month ago, was the same problem."
Pros: "Very nice airplane and pleasant crew"
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was amazing"
Pros: "Services is good ."
Cons: "Food can be better"
Pros: "Decent price for economy comfort seat, 4A."
Cons: "The flight was delayed about 80 minutes and they did not informed until when I got to the Airport. I could have stayed more at home instead of the terminal. They have also changed the boarding gate.."
Pros: "Klm's consistantly high standards in everything they do."
Pros: "Professional crew. Good simple check in."
Pros: "Fast boarding"

Pros: "Things went as planned in the beginning. The young lady who checked me in at the BA counter was very friendly and helpful. The preboarding and boarding went very smoothly as well."
Cons: "The plane boarded as usual then things went wrong. There was apparently something that went wrong with furl getting into a separate storage tank (that's scary in itself...how does that happen?) and they announced that they couldn't get the fuel tank to fill completely and the mechanics needed to get a "special tool" to complete the process. Then they needed some "tool" to drain the fuel from the mysterious storage tank. That was done and they announced that they had decided that they had plenty of fuel to make it to Denver. An hour and a half later of sitting in a sweltering hot cabin the y announced that the mechanical issues were taken care of BUT we'd have to wait another 20 minutes to take off because of the traffic waiting to leave Heathrow."

Pros: "Food was decent and they came back to offer us another drink."
Cons: "Plane was old and dated. No usb or outlets to charge any devices on a 10.5 hour flight. Also seating was small and cramped. I wish there was a way to automatically get an isle seat or emergency row seat if you are over 6ft tall."
Pros: "No hassle with hand luggage"
Pros: "747s are good stable planes in flight"
Cons: "The greatest problem was dealing with the usual chaos and discomfort of traveling through Heathrow airport. Primitive and time-consuming transportation system between terminals- Had to ride overcrowded buses packed with so many people that your body was pressed against your neighbor. Inadequate number of restrooms and poor signage to find them. Bad selection of restaurants. Then at the terminal, boarding time listed as 10:40, but they did not even announce the boarding gate until 10:40. Then a 10 minute ride on another overcrowded bus to the plane which you had to board by a staircase (and a staircase to the door on a 747 is no small thing!) Although flight was smooth in the air, the pilot landed so "hard" I thought the landing gear must have been damaged!"
Pros: "Efficient processes. All went to plan"
Cons: "Tight seating. Old plane. Entertainment screen sub par"
Cons: "The transfer from T5 to T3 was chaotic. Queues to join queues to get the transfer bus. People were getting caught on a moving escalator because the crowd in front had nowhere they could go to make room. Extremely dangerous! It took longer to get from T5 to T3 than it did to get from Dublin to London. Boarding in T3 for the flight to Denver was almost as bad. Bodies everywhere, no organisation and no help. Then the aircraft itself was so old with uncomfortable seats and an almost unwatchable screen. I will never transit through LHR again."
Pros: "On-time/early arrival, relatively communicative staff who also provided timely service. Bags delayed upon final destination."
Cons: "Seating became uncomfortable after so many hours. Boarding times long. Staff was at time over the top with their checks."
Pros: "I liked the fact that the customer service on board was pretty spectacular & very clean bathrooms."
Cons: "It was extremely warm throughout the flight and the seats weren’t too comfortable."
Pros: "Your staff were truly excellent, helpful and engaging."

Pros: "Flt attendants. Esp the english guy."

Cons: "Took off late and had to wait 45 minutes for luggage"

Pros: "British Airways code share is always nice"
Cons: "Older 747 not quite as nice as the Dreamliner but it made it!"
Pros: "Fight was on time. BA Crew always do a nice job."
Cons: "The entertainment on the flight didn't work. It is not easy to have two small kids on a 9 hour flight when the entertainment system isn't working properly. We did bring our own items to entertain our kids but with the limitations on what you can carry on we were banking on them being able to use the in flight system."
