Pros: "Everything was marvelous. The staff, food, and entertainment were excellent just like on our flight with Qantas from Vancouver to Sydney."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The service was friendly and attentive, the food was good, the legroom was amazingly good for coach, and there were lots of good movies available. Really great all the way around."
Cons: "For such a long trans-oceanic flight, I am used to the cabin crew coming around with drinks on a regular basis to keep people hydrated. That didn't really happen on this flight; I had to get up twice and walk to where the crew were hanging out (in a closed-curtain area) and ask for water."
Pros: "The crew and the flight was good. The comfort of the seats were not, especially for a 14.5 hr flight"
Cons: "Just a little more space between the seats! You have to lean to the side, on the passenger seating next to you to try to pick something up or gather your belongings."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and professional. The aircraft was clean and well maintained. Food and entertainment were great."
Cons: "Completely satisfied."
Cons: "The plane's interior needed a makeover, as is old"
Pros: "Crew were good. Better service than in business class"
Pros: "Lovely staff"
Cons: "Entertainment"
Pros: "Quantas Entertainment app was great!"
Cons: "Quantas seems to have frequent gate changes. You have to pay attention. No WiFi in terminals despite posted signs."
Cons: "We boarded very late, and had no place to wait at the gate (it was locked off) and got no explanation. My headrest broke off midflight. There were no good vegetarian options on the flight, and the entertainment system was very old and hard to see."
Pros: "NOTHING - THE TRIP WAS A NIGHTMARE AND I WILL NEVER TRAVEL WITH QANTAS AGAIN IF I CAN HELP IT. QANTAS WAS ALWAYS MY FIRST CHOICE BUT I WILL GO THE LONG WAY ROUND TO AVOID CREW & CONDITIONS LIKE THAT AGAIN. NO PILLOW,BLANKET OR TOILET PACK AND THEY RAN OUT OF FOOD. I WILL TELL EVERYONE ABOUT THIS!"
Cons: "Dark haired male crew member extremely rude except to two in row I58 & J58 who got 5 beers before departure,Food before everyone else, a gift pack from 1st class given before landing. I was refused extra bottled water. No entertainment the whole flight, Loud buzzing in galley 60H entire trip."
Pros: "Great crew! Cheap flight"
Cons: "Food okay, flight delayed both ways, seating uncomfortable in economy."
Pros: "Everything went well. boarding and check in."
Cons: "Seat spacing: way too close in economy. When person in front puts seat back, could not stand up to get out of seat. Got leg cramps trying to shuffle out sideways stooped over row of seats in front and rear hitting faces of occupants in my row. Refuse to fly on this airline any more until reasonable seat spacing is provided for price paid. Don't like standing up the whole flight because one cannot get into or out of seat."
Pros: "Food was delicious and service excellent"
Cons: "Slow customs in Honolulu"
Pros: "Economy seats were surprisingly comfortable . As usual not enough toilets!! The boarding in Jnb was the usual security schlepp but all in all no complaints and I will certainly fly this route and use this carrier again."
Cons: "Not enough toilets on board - peolequeing forever to get a chance,really tough on the parents with children."
Pros: "Staff was wonderful. Food and cleanliness was good. Pilots communication was accurate and helpful."
Cons: "We were travelling with an infant. Although we had requested for crib/bassinet we didn’t get one. To add to the anxiety, we noticed that none of the bassinet seats were allocated to parents with infants. There were at least 3 families with infants and lots of children due to school holidays. But we all had to make do with our cramped seats. Maybe Qantas can plan this better. It isn’t so difficult as they usually know how many infants are travelling, in advance."
Pros: "Such amazing service and hospitality on our flight from Jozi to Sydney. Old school 747 looking top class. Cabin crew on point. Simply an amazing experience. Best international flight I’ve been on in years."
Cons: "Flight was an hour late leaving. This caused me to miss the connection in Sydney (even though its gate was still shown as open when we arrived. There were a quite a few passengers booked on the connecting flight but Qantas made no attempt to get us on board it and instead re-booked us for the next flight which was scheduled for 2.5 hours later but, in fact, left nearly 3.5 hours later. Breakfast consisted of rubber egg."
Pros: "Complimentary Inflight drink and the effort from crew to accommodate English second language passengers in my row."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable chair I have even sat in, I arrived home 5 days ago and my back still hurts."
Pros: "Several genre and selections to choose from"
Cons: "The HBO selections were the same as 8 months ago"
Pros: "Delay on LAX to bNE was too late for us to make the connection. And our bags were lost as a result."
Pros: "Great service, easy flight."
Pros: "Temperature just right and pillows, blankets and better than average reclining seats"
Cons: "Food - too institutional. Bread over cooked, meats tough so couldn’t eat more than half of any meal."

Pros: "On time departing and arriving.Flight attendants pleasant."
Cons: "Nothing...was a great flight"

Cons: "Dash 8 is a bit cramped when it is full."
Pros: "All great!"
Pros: "They made it tolerable, and made us feel comfrotable on this 13.5 hr flight."
Cons: "Noisy conversations of people waiting to use the toilet."
Pros: "Crew were good, much better than on the previous flight."
Cons: "Boarding was shambolic and all passengers on a 100% full flight were crowded into a small area near the gate with no clear idea of what was going on and ground staff could not be heard, it actually bordered on becoming dangerous. Full flight Poor maintenance of inflight entertainment system, sound jack ports loose and affects sound quality."
Pros: "Known quality and reliable service It was all right."
Cons: "Entertainment is bring your own screen if you want to see the programme"
Cons: "9 hour delay and zero assistance rearranging car rentals, hotels, EXPENSIVE transfer between airport terminals"
Pros: "Once on the plane, the seats, meals and service was great"
Cons: "The lounge was horrible. Crowded, lack of choice for food and drink. Not even crisps available, just stodgy white bread sandwiches and some deep fried (frozen) samosas. Nothing in any way healthy, nothing meat free. The service was however a very high standard, but the staff only had what they had to work with. This flight is always full, so I don't understand why Qantas does not fix this problem."
Pros: "Crew on board were nice and helpful."
Cons: "No boarding announcements at Sydney airport. Food selections ran out."
Pros: "The no fuss but highly professional approach of the cabin crew. The level of comfort in the cabin, with a business class upgrade."
Cons: "I dont like having to track the distance through the outside lounge in both directions to get to the Business Lounge. The Business Lounge is frequently busy and noisy. Very hard to conduct a phone conversation from."
Pros: "On schedule departure & arrival times Seamless easy check-in at Learmonth"
Cons: "On board food offering was poor Expensive for distance travelled No onboard entertainment"
Pros: "The crew were fantastic! Attentive, humorous, efficient and very professional."
Cons: "The plane is well outdated. Cramped seats for a 14 hour flight. Minuscule TV screens. The 747 is a health hazard for flights over 6 hours. Bring on a Dreamliner or an A383 for that flight - PLEASE!!!"
Pros: "Great service and comfort"
Pros: "Complimentary healthy food, iPads, smiling staff"
Pros: "Impeccable service, food, and overall experience from the crew. It has always been a joy to fly Qantas, and I'm glad to see that is something that doesn't change."
Cons: "If you are going to travel with a little one, have the common decency to help your poor wife take care of them as well. You had three seats, the entire middle aisle, yet you decided to take the open seat next to me so they could lay down together. That was nice, I get it, sure. But if your baby is going to cry for hours (and hours, it was a 10.5 hour flight, that poor kid must have been exhausted), pause the movie for a minute, and maybe try to help. I don't mind being inconvenienced for the little ones, I'm a dad of 4 myself, I've traveled a lot and know how it goes. But jesus christ, she's your wife, that's your child, try taking care of them."
Pros: "Good food, movies and just 10x better than discount airlines"
Pros: "Was bumped off fjight. Due to not being checked in by Jetstar. Crew was nice and put us on a later Hawaiian."
Cons: "Delays at the airport Economy very uncomfortable Crappy food"
Pros: "Comfortable seat in coach on a long haul flight"
Cons: "Rude crew, sub par food, weird boarding process and ride boarding agent that kept my passport for an extended time, poor on flight entertainment aystwm"
Pros: "It seemed that being in seat 33, the crew kept forgetting to come back and get our rubbish. It seemed when they collected the rubbish, they were full at seat 32 row, come back and start at seat 34"
Pros: "We were travelling with our 7 month old baby for the first time and the staff on our flight were sooo amazing. They went above and beyond to help."
Pros: "The crew seemed very helpful and wanted to make it easier for families with children, so I moved from my row of 4 in the middle and got 2 seats on the side instead, which worked out great. I know some flights are more full and can't do this but it was really nice and made the flight more comfortable. Also the wine was a nice touch too :)"
Cons: "Didn't seem nearly as clean of an aircraft as the Virgin Australia flight I had taken on my way into Australia, but maybe it was a newer aircraft. Regardless, the toilet could have been a bit cleaner."
Pros: "I left my cell phone on my seat. When checking in for connecting flight in Sydney notified agent. He took info and gave me the number to call for lost items. The phone was returned prior to take off. Had to be retrieved from Domestic Terminal and transferred to International Terminal"
Pros: "Asked crew for water and they forgot about me"
Cons: "Poor attitude"
Pros: "Excellent service in every aspect on the Qantas flight! The time on board was just over three hours, and still we received a full meal, blankets and headphones, and had personal tv screens where it was possible to watch the latest movies. Well done!"
Cons: "The headphones were bad quality, it was difficult to understand what was being said in the movie."

I really dislike the tendency of delta to use small planes for major routes. It really isn’t comfortable to be crammed into a 737 for almost 6 hours. They have larger planes for routes like Lax —> HNL. They should use them.

You should be less stingy with the free snacks. This was a 4+-hour flight that already started 90 minutes late. I was allowed one snack choice. I picked almonds and was given a 0.5-oz bag. Really? You couldn’t have given me 2 bags when they’re that small? Or let me choose two different snacks? For such a long flight! Because the flight was bumpy, there was only one snack service, about 2 hours into the flight. That’s fine - you can’t control the weather - but knowing that the normal 2 services was reduced to just 1 - AND that we had left Atlanta 90 minutes late — all the more reason to be more generous with snacks! Frankly, your snacks should be bigger portions anyway. I felt like your airline was being incredibly stingy.

First class was terrible! It began with the customer service agent at the boarding gate taking being completely rude to the first class customers waiting to board. She/he (it was difficult to tell if it was a man or woman) yelled at everyone and said “it doesn’t take a genius to understand that only military or people with special needs may board, my god!!!” I’ve never seen such unprofessionalism from Delta. Then my husband and I went to our seats in first class and the flight attendant had left their paperwork and folders on our seats. I waited for a while to see if he would pick it up. He did not, so I picked it up and handed it to him. He then replied “oh we’re going to put you to work and pass out the agriculture forms”. When it came time for the meal he stated “we only have kale salad so do you want it or not?” My husband replied,” no I don’t like kale”. The flight attendant then replies “okay you don’t want it because that’s all we have”. My husband was seated in 1A, how do they have only one choice remaining out of the 3 when he’s in the first seat?? The flight attendant was very rude! As a loyal Delta customer, I was absolutely appalled at the unprofessional behavior from both customer service agents and first class flight attendant! I have to say that I will think twice before booking my next flight (next month) on Delta due to this experience.

Love the leg room and entertainment in comfort plus. Crew members were also excellent. However, serving gold fish and cookies twice on a 6hr flight is embarrassing. Delta should offer a better variety of snacks during a long flight.

Delta is my new favorite airlines. I have no complaints. Even if they don't serve meals the snacks were ok.

Pros: "Nice clean plane and every other seat being open is very reassuring."
Pros: "Delta is the airline to fly if you have to fly (like I did) during a pandemic. They made sure at every turn we felt as safe as possible. They had passengers distanced from each other the whole time, handed out sanitizing wipes as we walked on the plane, made sure folks kept their masks on, gave us individual little baggies with snacks and water bottles that also had individual hand sanitizer packets. I felt so much more safe flying Delta on my way home to Hawaii in July than I did when I flew American Airlines on my way to the mainland in June."
Pros: "Definitely pick comfort plus on this flight if you can. You can walk around a lot more on this flight compared to other flights. Food was really good! Recommend the overnight flights...."
Cons: "More leg room would have been nice..."
Pros: "I like flying with Delta, it's just I was not feeling well and our flight got delayed and delayed and delayed. We finally made it on and the extra comfort was great"
Cons: "The food selections not so great. The sandwich was hard. Could use more options."
Cons: "Too hot. Bathrooms were dirty. No leg space in comfort+."
Cons: "Great"
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Flight wasn't full. I could have been seated somewhere else since passenger next to me was quite large and invading my personal space"
Cons: "Hopefully upgrade on monitors (touch screen was not working),"
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "More food choices, but what we had was good."
Pros: "crew found me an outlet for laptop"
Cons: "nothing"
Cons: "The pork dinner meal option was burnt … al the way through."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Seating was fine"
Cons: "Did not have a wheelchair waiting for my wife when we arrived in LAX"
Pros: "Appreciated stewardess comping wine because my husband and I couldn't sit together"
Cons: "Don't assume you will get a good fare just because you book 2.5 months in advance, have a Delta AmEx card, and use some of your earned miles"
Cons: "There is no room. The snacks were fine, but the main meal was disgusting."
Pros: "One of the flight attendants was nice."
Cons: "5+ hours and just some bagged snacks. Had to wait forever for soda. Screen was difficult to work - touch wasn’t working. Much smaller program selection than flights 6 days ago from RSW to LAX via ATL."
Pros: "- flying business was great. Comfortable chairs that lay flat. - entertainment options are amazing. Worthy of any international flight."
Cons: "- staff was not very friendly. At least one of the businsss class stewards. - Food options for breakfast limited."
Pros: "Crew and flight"
Cons: "Price for food and number of bathroom available"
Pros: "Short time and easy on and off boarding."
Cons: "One stewardess was in a mood but otherwise a very pleasant flight."
Pros: "Snacks & drinks & TV movies good"
Cons: "One hostess was very rude & slow forget our headphones Kept getting me to help her with getting attention of other hostesses also very bad at giving snacks and kept my husband and another man waiting for 10 mins while she gathered rubbish despite repeated requests which would have been easy as she was at the front of plane obviously unsuited for this position"
Pros: "The flight was probably only half booked, the crew was awesome, very attentive and accommodating. Legroom at seat 13A was plenty. Also the fact that messaging is free is convenient."
Cons: "No food to purchase. The flight was over dinner time. Boarding - the ground staff’s announcements weren’t very intelligible."
Pros: "I liked that the plane wasn’t full which was a surprise."
Cons: "Last leg of the flight as usual we had some plane on it’s last legs with entertainment equipment from the 90’s and that’s being generous. My iPhone 7Plus is only a little smaller than the screen they would have you watch for five hours. Also the plane was old and noisy and seats were not really comfortable. But this is par for the course flying to Hawaii for some reason, no matter the carrier. Hawaiian Airlines is usually better but that’s to be expected."
Pros: "Gal at the gate was most helpful. She corrected my boarding pass to zone 1 and put us in exit row. I have sat there before but it was really roomy although the seat seemed less comfy."
Cons: "Plane was much smaller than what I usually fly to Hawaii but the roomy exit seat made up for that. Downside was the screen was small so hard to see."
Pros: "Speedy boarding and deplaning."
Cons: "The gate agent appeared annoyed when I requested a seat change a couple of hours prior to boarding. She didn’t offer assistance or an explanation. Just looked at me like ‘ in your dreams’. And flight attendants should really practice smiling more. Snacks offered on 5.5 hour flight we’re pretty pathetic."
Pros: "Comfort Plus seating was good for the long flight, lots of choices for entertainment."
Cons: "Some crew members were rather cold in their manner, either disinterested or grumpy. Electric outlet didn't work. On screen entertainment touch screen was very difficult to use (unresponsive to touch)."
Pros: "In flight tracking"
Cons: "Irregular serbice"
Pros: "Attentive staff."
Cons: "Nothing. Great flight."
Pros: "Quick flight, great landing and takeoff."
Cons: "Everything was great today."
Pros: "The plane was really cool. Some more advanced technologies than other Airline companies. Crew was good too."
Cons: "Issue happened with my landing. Didn't make it in time to next gate. Delta did everything they could to blame me, insulted me on The phone and definitely provided the worst customer service"
Cons: "Older plane and seemingly frustrated crew. They had very little patience."
Pros: "The gate agents were gruff, but helpful. Stewards were super friendly."
Cons: "Even though I had picked out two seats together, they had us separated. Very thankfully they put us back together after the fact - that was wonderful & appreciated. But entertainment system also didn’t work, and as always, seats are disgustingly uncomfortable. Also odd that they made us check bags with so many empty overhead bins."
Pros: "The gentleman at the gate was super helpful and helped us check our bags at the gate."
Cons: "Zero leg room. Zero arm room. The entertainment system did not function. No food for such a long flight unless you pay more then the food is actually worth."
Pros: "Let on time and arrived 30 mins EARLY."
Cons: "Had to pay for meal despite length if flight."
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "I have broad shoulders and there was a larger gentleman on the window seat. Being in the middle seat made for a very very cramped flight the whole way. Lots of skin to skin arm contact for much of the flight. There was no way to avoid it."
Cons: "The flight attendants were unfriendly and borderline rude. I felt like when I asked for anything or was just up stretching my legs that I was bothering them. There was also quite bit of turbulence in the first two hours- I have traveled a lot and I felt like it took the pilots too long to find a smoother altitude."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and kept making rounds with water so we didn't have to get up looking for it. Free entertainment at our seats made the flight go by faster."
Cons: "No complaints, I was stuck in a middle seat but somebody has to sit there!"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Seats too close. Food lacks salads. Fruit salad tasteless--fruit not ripe--looks good, but no taste."
Cons: "Even with "Comfort +" the seats are horrible."
Pros: "Like the direct flight from Minneapolis to Honolulu and you even get a meal and snacks. Flight attendants were very friendly."
Cons: "Long flight but prefer the direct flight than having a layover."
Cons: "The flight was over 20 minutes early"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, super crew, awesome non stop flight from Minneapolis. Could not ask for any better. Delta is the #1 airline."
Cons: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "For the second time in one day, my seat would not recline!!! Very uncomfortable for an even longer flight than the first one!!"
Pros: "Crew was tentative."
Cons: "Lady besides me was eating something that smelt bad."
Cons: "Air conditioner was not working properly and we were delayed over 3 hours waiting on the plane at the gate and tarmac. Then they had to de-ice the plane which added more delay. Lost too much time that could have been spent in sunny, warm Hawaii."
Pros: "The plane was modern with good entertainment options. Overhead storage was ample."

Way too small space for legs, especially when travelling with a dog

Pros: "The Food and Service was good."
Cons: "All good!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and attentive, I really like the food on Lufthansa"
Cons: "The movie selection was limited and dated"
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "More varieties of whisky on board"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "Seats, entertainment, crew attitude"
Pros: "Crew was professional and competent. Seats were roomy and comfortable."
Cons: "I have a hard time sleeping in any seat that doesn’t fully recline."
Pros: "The Crew was very good. I was with my 84 year old father.And they handled his needs very well ."
Cons: "The food of course was sort of mediocre at breakfast. The eggs tasted like they were man made.oh well maybe that’s really typical. Otherwise all was fine."
Pros: "Everything, comfort, quietness,"
Cons: "Boarding, de-icing made us wait long on plane n it got stuffy"
Pros: "The portion of my trip from San Francisco to Honolulu -- provided by United Airlines, not by Lufthansa -- was frustrating and uncomfortable: more than five hours in a small Boeing 737, which hardly permitted any reclining of the seats.and provided but limited in-flight services"
Cons: "Use a mid-size plane designed for long distances between California and the Hawaiian Islands, including full services."
Pros: "The crew were very considerate. Also they have the best baby beds we have seen so far"
Cons: "The entertainment system was glitchy."
Pros: "Lounge was very clean"
Cons: "In a 10 hours flight Frankfurt to Atlanta only one main meal. Service was rushed job. My seat wasn’t working and Tv remote didn’t work."
Pros: "The airbus looked nice, crew was friendly."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, the seats were ok. The USB port did not work and the touch screen was unresponsive, hard to use. Four bathrooms in the middle of the plane did not seem sufficient, toilet paper running out, long wait."
Pros: "How smoothly everything ran"
Cons: "Drinks served from glasses on a tray. I would have preferred an individual bottle of water."
Cons: "Boarding needs to be more organized"
Pros: "The takeoff and landing were smooth. The food and service was good."
Cons: "The screen for viewing movies were not functioning all the time"
Cons: "Could have more options for entrainment"
Cons: "Walked a very long way in Frankfurf airport to transfer to another flight."
Pros: "I can not even mention one thing that was good - they were ahead of time on arrival, which is good - but luggage took 2 hours to get and some items came in after midnight the following day! Terrible"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "Bus shuttle to plane"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "when seats recline in economy you can barely get in and out of a seat"
Pros: "The short transist time in Frankfurt"
Pros: "Service, friendly crews. Everything."
Cons: "Simply the best.Thank you."
Cons: "Had difficulty walking up and down stairs to plane."
Cons: "They tell you to download the app for entertainment but it doesn't work. No entertainment on the flight and no food unless you pay. The service sucked."
Pros: "They did get us other flights home and got us a hotel to stay in. There were meal vouchers but it was so late by the time we were rebooked we could not eat dinner and our flights left too early to be able to use them, but it was a nice effort on their part."
Cons: "They cancelled the flight due to mechanical issues which was understandable. The problem was the chaos at Frankfurt airport because the instructions given to us to get to the Lufthansa service desk were totally inadequate. At least we didn't have to sleep at the airport like some passengers did."
Pros: "The boarding process is very efficient."
Cons: "Lufthansa’s people are mostly good. But there are some obvious opportunities for people to be more friendly. Also, LH like many others continues to serve cold rolls and cold butter on international flights. KLM warms the rolls! It’s the one small touch that would make Lufthansa’s meal service so much nicer."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Received very filling meals. Free movies available for watching."
Cons: "We sat on the runway for over an hour with no explanation as to what was happening. At least overall, we only arrived half an hour late."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "Flight was delayed then we were told it would leave at 4 but then they boarded at 230 then we sat on the plane for 3 hours after already being delayed we stayed on the plane when they knew that we wouldn't be taking off for hours but they didn't income us of this"
Pros: "Ease of boarding. Plenty of luggage space. Friendly and courteous crew"
Cons: "Last snack of ham and cheese was aweful"
Cons: "I had to endure 10 hours sitting next to an obese passenger, who was to big to fit into his seat and had to rest his shoulder and elbow over my seat. The crew couldn't do much and so I had to shift myself sideways for the entire journey in order to make space for this obese passenger to rest his arm into and over my seat."
Cons: "They had overbooked the flight and asked to reroute me. I asked if I would still be able to get to my destination at the same time and to make sure I would have a window seat. Everything from the moment I said yes was a terrible. They rebooked me twice on two different routes when I was in the air. Said a steward would meet me (never happened) instead I was running to catch flights on different airlines in two different airports. The entire situation was disgusting. The running was with all of my luggage. Because of the rebooking I was in the last row of 75 rows on a plane with an additional connection. Every flight had delays creating more chaos for the next flight. The only helpful airline in the bunch was Delta."
Pros: "Crew friendly, good food"
Cons: "Cramped seating, can't select seat until checkin without paying (only airline we were unable to select seat)"
Pros: "Apart from the turbulence everything was perfect. Flight attendants were very hospitable. Love the aircraft design. Great movie choices for the kids. In addition to that we all reach our destination safely. That's all that matters."
Cons: "Flight delay for over an hour with United"
Pros: "Due to unforeseen circumstances, I needed assistance with boarding. I attempted to ask the check in agent at the boarding gate and she was extremely rude to me as well as other passengers. The assistant's behavior displayed annoyance and an unwillingness to assist passengers."
Pros: "SAS and BA can do better"
Pros: "Lufthansa always has good service and amenities"
Cons: "I believe it is Lufthansa's responsibility to move my seat if I am seated next to someone who is taking up more than half of my seat for an 11 hour flight"
Pros: "Excellent Flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Took off on time and we got breakfast. Good crew."
Cons: "Older plane, no entertainment offerings. Leg room seemed to be less than expected even thought was in business class section."
Cons: "Transfer gate is too far away"
Pros: "first time in the new economy plus, was a pretty good experience-- food comfort, etc."
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"
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."
Pros: "Friendly crew, food better than on other companies, very smooth ride!"
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: "no complaints, everything went well."
Pros: "Entertainment."
Cons: "Staff was extremely sassy and unhelpful when I had been traveling for 40 hours."
Cons: "My whole experience with Lufthansa/united was horrible. We booked our tickets on kayak and it was a Lufthansa flight operated by United. When we went to check in at the united counter they told us there was no record of our flight even though we had printed our receipt which had confirmed ticket numbers. It took over 30 minutes for them to figure out they needed to call Lufthansa to get the ticket transferred and in the end blamed us for not doing that ourselves before the flight! I thought this was insane as I have flown with multiple other airlines and never had this problem. And then once it was fixed for the way there we still had problems again on the way back. Never flying United/Lufthansa again."
Cons: "Entertainment seems like you have to pay for even basics. If you need to charge for movies domestically, fine, but even basic news or so timed out. Seats are tight (legroom). I am 6'2" and knees were against seat in front of me."
Pros: "Very prompt, good food. We encourage trip very much!"

You cancelled our flight without even notifying us up till today. Luckily for us we found out about it about 10 hours before our flight. My son Desmond Owen was in contact with you about the refund. Goodday.

Pros: "Boarded and left on time"
Cons: "Food was awful. It was so hot I was fanning myself. I had a 11 hour flight and than a 10 hour flight after both British airways, and the same exact food. So I just went hungry. I smelled something amazing so thought I would get a good hot meal as my last meal since I had not had anything in 9hours, but nope, just got a measly cold sandwich. I won’t book British airlines again for international travel, I’ll stick to emirates."
Cons: "Hardly saw a steward in business class the whole flight. Must be part of BA’s cost saving initiatives, but means you don’t get food on time, offered drinks or even a menu"
Cons: "Distance between seats on the low side i.e. not much leg room. TV screen again on the small size in comparison with other airlines. Ear phones poor build quality and sound. Plastic cutlery. Small meal trays. No hand wipes with meals. In comparison with other airlines BA is only an average carrier."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Not applicable."
Cons: "Only one round of drinks served?"
Cons: "The people handling the boarding were rude and inefficient. Not a way to staty an 11 hour flight."
Pros: "Crew fantastic. Seats very cramped so hard when travelling alone with people crammed next to you. I am very short and still found seat cramped. Blankets skimpy. Heathrow to San Fran. Johannesburg to Heathrow was more comfortable."
Cons: "Most things I give a high rate on BA but travelling economy these days is very cramped especially as I did two long international legs with short four hour break between."
Cons: "Lost my luggage"
Pros: "The flight was great and was on time. Down side, no entertainment at all."
Cons: "Lack of entertainment"
Pros: "More legroom than other aircraft, plentiful IFE (in-flight entertainment), and a USB charging point in the seat back near the video screen. Decent food and wine, great crew."
Cons: "We departed the terminal for takeoff but a passenger had a medical emergency requiring a return to the gate and off-loading along with finding the passenger’s baggage down below. Not the airline’s fault, of course, but maybe passengers should carefully consider their health before embarking on an 11.5 hour flight from one continent to another."
Pros: "Timely service and courteous staff."
Pros: "On time, attentive staff"
Cons: "price"
Cons: "Used to be good when you got food and drink"
Pros: "Flight arrived 30 minutes early."
Pros: "Quick boarding, good crew."
Cons: "Greasy food."
Pros: "The Crew were great"
Cons: "Boarding could have been more efficient"
Cons: "Delayed 4 hours!"
Pros: "I loved the new modern plane. It was a bit more comfortable and conveniently designed. Less like a cattle truck and more like a luxury bus."
Pros: "There was no flight"
Cons: "The flight did not take off. What little information we were goven was inaccurate. We called and were rebooked on another flight without being told it was overbooked and our tickets were standby . Dozens of other passengers had the same experience"
Pros: "Service was excellent"
Cons: "Food was served cold. They came back later and offered it hot, but it was way later."
Pros: "Crew great, Food great!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight has now been cancelled twice. Communication by BA has been lacking. Flight now scheduled to leave 48 hours later than scheduled.See above"
Pros: "Excellent flight. Staff very helpful and professional."
Pros: "Lots of delays due to technical problems with the plan. Had to be moved onto another plane. More than 3 hour delay."
Pros: "Leg room. Direct flight from Europe. Drink services were a lot better than our outbound flight."
Cons: "Plane was incredibly old for a long haul flight, with no power socket and extremely outdated TV's. Seats were dirty and small. We were in row 34 (middle of the plane over the wing) and when they got to us with the food options, they had already run out of the second choice on both occasions. On the first service, we asked the attendant if the food had any fish/seafood ingredients (due to allergies) and she said no. We then read on the lid of the food tray that there was a possibility of fish traces so my husband could not eat it. When we told the attendant about it she told us they didn't have anything else. Hard to believe there was nothing they could do, we've never experienced this issue before. We then asked another flight attendant if there was any food available for purchase but she said no. Luckily, she was able to find a vegetarian dish that my husband could eat. We're grateful that she found this as the next food service was not until 6 hours later. Sad that we had to ask again, we were expecting that they cared a little more. Overall, BA didn't meet our expectations unfortunately. This was a trip to Europe in which we took 4 BA flights and overall, the experience was of that no better than a low cost. Would have a hard time thinking of choosing this airline again."
Pros: "Hostess was very nice, helpful and friendly. entertainment was ok and pilot was very informative on delays and info. I think the comic relief video is a keeper. People tend to watch just to see the characters and reactions"
Cons: "Seats were to close together, really squashed, no space for 2 arms on the arm rests and leg room is rubbish. Food is wasn't bad.. could do with more on the trays, seems there have been some budget cuts. Continental breakfast option would be really nice."
Pros: "Very helpful and courteous staff."
Cons: "I don't like that the armrests between seats don't go up all the way. That makes it impossible to stretch out if there's an empty seat next to you. Also, there's too big of a space between the window seat and the window, so you can't lean your head against the side of the plane to take a nap."
Pros: "The service was pleasant and they flight smooth and enjoyable."
Pros: "The meals were reasonably nice and the flight was on time"
Cons: "The entertainment screens were old and not clear and not easy to use. The crew was not efficient, not very friendly and not very accommodating. They offered minimal service, contrary to another crew on the A380 flight with BA going from LHR to JNB. Between flights, I guess I saw the better and the worse of BA."
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze, the A380 is so much quieter than the usual 747 and really clean. We arrived on time."
Cons: "As a silver Avios member I've gotten used to the cabin crew calling me on my name when they come and talk to me. This time they spoke as little as possible and it was all incognito. They seemed to be more interested in various Facebook updates than working business class."
Pros: "Good food, good service, everything on time."
Cons: "I paid for an exit seat and didn't get one and then I had the only seat with no entertainment for 11 hours overnight and no Joyce to move"
Pros: "Nothing special at al!"
Cons: "International flights never charge baggage fees for 2nd bag. Older aircraft. Mediacore friendly by the crew. They cancelled my return flight cost me lots of head aches and money!"
Pros: "Crew treated you well, boarding was organised and as a silver club card holder I was rewarded with priority boarding (less queues, less hassle)."
Cons: "Old style entertainment console, small screens, no usb or plug point for charging."
Pros: "We boarded almost 1hr early, took off on time and landed just before scheduled."
Pros: "What a different experience in relation to last week!"
Cons: "No direct communication. Really bad"
Pros: "Great Crew, smooth operation. Efficient service."
Cons: "Boarded flight only to be unboarded at midnight: got to hotel 4am. Long delay in check in/appallingly disorganized. No communication from BA as to problem or when flight would go. Next day checked out of hotel and taken back to airport only to find flight not going as problem not fixed. Passengers taken back to hotel and checked in again! All this time, no official communication from BA. No attempt to reroute elderly passengers or those with small children. Very unimpressed"
Cons: "They did not do much to help accommodate us sitting together on the long flight. Poor food. Poor service."
Cons: "Since 1st flight was extremely delayed due to stupidity of staff unable to get head count of passengers, the BA system rebooked my 2nd flight which should hve not happened because I made it to my original flight prior to gate closing AND that flight was delayed anyways so I made it in plenty of time to make it yet my seat was taken from me and then boarding started. And I have to state WHY this BA flight was delayed - because they "had problem getting the catering on board" thus missed runway time. Anyways, since I was rebooked I went to my new gate, waited many hours to hve another issue, where they couldnt find my new seat in system and changed, and again flight was delayed this time due to having a flat tire... Common BA, seems your quality dropped 99%."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seating configuration was ridiculous as flight attendants constantly leaning across me with trays and their arms nearly hitting my face. Seat & bed functions didn't work. Privacy screen was a joke!"
Pros: "I'm sure there was something but nothing comes to mind."
Cons: "Lack of assistance regarding my missing belongings. Incorrect information relating to landing card to be completed when arriving in London. Stretching over me to pass food etc to passenger sitting facing other direction, and literally millimetres from my face, without any politeness having to do it. Configuration gives no privacy as you look at the passenger next to you. Functions of chair did not work. Pillow was thinner Than a piece of paper. Crew showed no concern."
Cons: "Jfk massive queue at checkin/drop off"
Pros: "Nice plane. Great movies"
Cons: "Breakfast poor quality. Disorganised boarding"
Cons: "I HAVE FLOWN OFTEN ON OTHER AIRLINES & IT WAS THE FIRST TIME TO FIND OUT THAT BRITISH AIRWAYS ONLY ALLOWED ONE FREE CHECKED BAG AND I HAD TO PAY $200 WHEN I ARRIVED AT THE AIRPORT, $100 FOR THE 2ND BAG & $100 BECAUSE IT EXCEEDED 51 LBS"
Cons: "Each rep we spoke to said they couldnt help us and to just open a support ticket online.. Kept telling us they dont have a customer service team who can help us and its only available online."
Pros: "The staff was friendly. The food was great. There was plenty of entertainment to choose from."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "breakfast was terrible. It was beans, mushrooms, and asparagus. It also came with 3 pieces of fruit. Coffee was also terrible. If you sitting in the middle seats there is no space. The man's arms sitting in the seat next to me were pretty much in my seat the whole time."
