The fly dubai associated flight was a bit tricky the plane was uncomfortable and I was assigned a seat next to loo.
Cons: "The crew service is very bad, they are rude. And the thing from dubai to Hyderabad one of the attendants doesn't even help with the luggage, don't close the top shelf behaved as if untounchavility prevailed which Is very bad"
Cons: "Food availability a minor challenge but crew handled it very nicely."
Cons: "I wish the 777 had slightly wider seats like the A380"
Cons: "Everything!! My seat was not extra wide, it was broke and would not recline...14hr flight!! Entertainment system didn’t work right."
Pros: "Seat was okay and the laptop bag considered an extra carry-on was not good and I had to consolidate."
Cons: "Qatar airways allowed us to take both separately and we could take up exit row if available without payment"
Cons: "A 15 hour noisy flight. Careless mothers and their screaming kids. No Manors on telling them to be quiet or stop screaming. They played with their kids in an awfully loud sound."
Pros: "Today amazingly the service was too good, the hostesses were coming forward and asking if we needed something and making the journey comfortable."
Cons: "Was nicr"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, new movies"
Cons: "Long wait after boarding before takeoff"
Cons: "- We were made to sit in flight for 2 hours. Then all were offloaded. - We were made to sit on airport for flight for about 6 hours. - I was not allowed to exit or reschedule the flight until i waited for 6 hours. - Still its not confirmed whether the flight will depart on given time. - I missed my important work in India. - The new flight arrives Mumbai midnight 2:30 am which is very hectic for me. I paid more for the flight at the time of booking knowing it will reach in the evening."
Pros: "Great and helpful see ice. Food is good as well. One of the few airlines where flying 24 hours (over 2 legs) is bearable."
Cons: "Takes a long time to board and de board the plane, which almost made me miss my connection at Dubai."

Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Not sure you can change anything but it seems as if we had an inordinate amount of crying kids. On a 14 hour flifht, that was hard"
Cons: "My seat was booked on Ile. it was chanded to window which I hate"
Cons: "Horrible service. Flight delayed for almost 4.5 hrs at the DFW. Missed connecting flight and requested them to switch another carrier. Request was denied and put in a red eye flight for next day. Pathetic Airlines"
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."

Cons: "Movies Leg room Breakfast"
Pros: "Nothing really. Packed like sardines in seats which are too narrow."
Cons: "2 hour delay at DFW because other flights de icing Diverted in mid Atlantic to Dublin because of problems with toilets. Waited 2-3 hours there. Missed connecting flight from Dubai to BLR. Only good thing was that Emirates gave me a boarding pass to a later flight and a meal voucher that was accepted with bad grace by the barista at terminal B Costas. Two of the meal voucher choices Cozi & Burger King had gone out of business!"
Pros: "Everything from food to seating was quite comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit more difficult since they did not call boarding zones"
Pros: "The airline was good, food fine, entertainment good, and seats comfy."
Cons: "The delay for boarding wasn't communicated good."

Pros: "Nice travel from Dallas to Dubai and I am happy."
Cons: "My trip was business class from US to Dubai: The attendant woke me up for lunch time to tell me you have only one option as all other options are already taken! Wifi service was not working the whole flight duration because it was not even installed yet on the new aircraft."
Pros: "All other service was ok except not giving hotel room for staying for the purpose of connection..."
Cons: "Stay over night for connection and emirate dine giving hotel"
Cons: "Firstly the check in for boarding pass took forever since there was only one counter that charged for extra luggage. I had to line up 3 times to get a boarding pass and almost missed my flight even though I came 2 hrs earlier. Secondly emirates does not give you Hotel even if your layover is for 14 hrs. Since my airline for final destination is another airline they said I don't qualify for it. It's a nightmare. I have travelled all other airline but by far emirates is the worst airline I travel. Terrible experience and I will never fly Emirates."
Pros: "Love the idea of informing every leg of my flight. Thanks"
Pros: "On time and Crew was helpful otherwise"
Cons: "We had to negotiate with passengers to get our children together as we had been allocated scattered seats It is very irritating to see that you need to pay extra to get your seats in advance which is like any other budget airline, not expected of Emirates"
Cons: "We waited for our luggage more than one hour which was more than the flight time from Bahrain to Dubai. That is why I described my trip as poor"
Pros: "The entertainment unit worked all good. The food was great."
Cons: "Flight got delayed. I can't say crews weren't kind but I was on another airline with much much kinder crews."

Pros: "Everything was great. I didn't want to get off the plane."
Pros: "Everything rom booking to boarding to reaching the destination."
Pros: "Even though I was flying economy, the seats on the A380 were wide and comfortable and the entertainment onboard was very good."
Pros: "Crew v good"
Cons: "Food .. Fish undercooked ... Aircraft bit dated"
Cons: "Boarding was 'mediocre' due to the air crash earlier in the day, led to a gate change and various chaos. Great staff through, so not really so bad and totally understandable...."
Pros: "Cordial staff and good food"
Cons: "Leg room and head phones did not work properly"
Pros: "Loved the space and comfort and friendly crew"
Cons: "I travel overseas 1 to 2 times per annum. I've always chosen flights based on economical costs only, and most times disappointed by the level of service, quality and overall feel. This time recently, I chose Emirates airline and was impressed by their overall offering. I'm now converted and will fly Emirates ALWAYS!!"
Kayak/Qatar Airways tore one of my bags. I'd like compensation for it. Also, the check in at Chicago was time consuming and tedious owing to RT PCR checking. That should be made more efficient. Likewise, the check at Mumbai airport.
Seats weren’t clean. Screens need to wiped correctly.
Pros: "i was told i miss my flight by 5 min and and they told me they wil book mw next flight and gave me a phone number when i called the ph9ne number i was given they asked ms 1400$ more and that was for a week latter flight when i asked for atleast refund or flight cridet they dniede me and wasnt even want talk to me."

Pros: "Breakfast was good; the first meal was average"
Pros: "From new York to Doha flight seats are not that comfortable."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Bassinet seats could be bigger for comfort with an infant."
Pros: "crew was so kind and lovely with our daughter"

Cons: "Friendly and wellmennerd team."
Pros: "I liked everything. Plane ride was nice and I felt welcomed. Had a good experience."
Pros: "The attendants were great."
Cons: "The food on all 4 flights was ok. Could have been more interesting recipes and dessert. The seats on all flights were consistently hard and stiff. It was impossible to get a decent rest because of that as well as the areas being pretty cramped."
Pros: "The crew was professional. I had acute diarrhoea they insisted to eat some thing before they gave me the medicine,which was perfect. They checked every time my situation they even asked if I need a doctor waiting for me at the airport."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Pros: "Q-suites are fantastic."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Premium boarding line was tied up by economy passengers and ground crew did not turn them back"
Pros: "There was a flight attendant that this was only her second flight. She was amazing. Really enjoyed the service."
Pros: "It is so far a cut above the American carriers. There’s no way to compare them, because Qatar Airways is so far superior. The seats are far more comfortable and larger, the amount of legroom is far superior, you have much more personal space, and the craft is cleaner. Flight Attendants are fantastic! They provide excellent personal care, and are there for everything. They are supremely polite and courteous, and bring things in mediately. Very often anticipating your needs. This is what flying used to be like on United and American. But those people have completely forgotten what service is. Qatar is a 5 star airline. United and American, to my view, are 2 star at best."
Pros: "Same as earlier flight"
Pros: "Service was great for such a long flight. It would be good to have like a snack bar for people to purchase snacks."
Cons: "The wedsite for Qatar could use some work."
Pros: "Super check in, great entertainment options"
Cons: "Cabin crew were not very helpful. Food was average at best."
Pros: "At gate boarding was I inefficient and managed professionally. On board entertainment was glitchy as the movies paused and skipped the entire flight."
Cons: "The staff were not trained well and unaware of how to conduct proper flow of customer screening."
Pros: "I took advantage of the upgrade offer, and it was well worth it."
Cons: "Too many mosquitoes, but I'm not sure how they could have stopped them coming on board."
Cons: "I had been told my checkin bags will be available at final destination but I had to pick them up at Delhi and do the checking in once more which was a lot of hassle with kids"
Pros: "Helpful and friendly crew"
Cons: "Same as kochi to Doha flight"
Pros: "Flight Attendants were really helpful especially when one of my child had a nose bleed, we had at least 3 attendants, tending to our needs when that happened and they did not leave until the situation was resolved."
Pros: "Every thing is great."
Cons: "Food Seat great service"
Pros: "The crew service"
Cons: "The cost of internet access"
Pros: "The lack of passengers on this flight gave me an amazing amount of room. Really makes the flights enjoyable when I can spread out."
Cons: "The food could use some work. The quantities are perfect. But the quality is definitely lacking"
Cons: "I had a long trip and as a result I had lost my voice, and the crew had no patient at all. I feel like she just wanted to check the box instead of really making sure I got what I wish for food wise."
Cons: "The entertainment did not include any music (classical or otherwise)."
Pros: "I was actually impressed with the entertainment selection :)"
Cons: "The economy seats are just unfortunately not a place you can get comfortable enough to sleep. On 14 hour flights one hopes to sleep."
Pros: "The business cabin and the customer service was superb."
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Mediocre staff, not very attentive, horrible boarding experience in Doha. Food was inedible, watched a crew member place food she had spilled onto the aisle FLOOR back onto a tray to give to someone as if nothing happened, which prompted me not to anything for an 8 hour trip. DISGUSTING!"
Cons: "I will never purchase a flight with Qatar"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "No consistency with hand luggage. My companions and I were held to strict weight limits. Others were getting on with three and four bags."
Pros: "I had a great experience with overall trip."
Cons: "I was not very impressed with hostesses service. on the second leg of the trip. The boarding process was not organized at all. We have zone numbers but people just boarded at first come first served basis"
Cons: "Narrow seats and little legroom."
Pros: "The food on foreign airlines is so much better than on american airlines (they even offer something in economy class on short local flights)."
Cons: "The seat spacing on the 70-minute flisght was a little cramped - it would be even worse for a taller person than I (at 5'10")."
Cons: "I had cancelled my flight with qatar airways due to the current political problems. My ticket was booked through the agent airfare.com. They have handled the issue terribly. To start with. They said that they have to charge me a $615 penalty on top of the $750 i had payed for the ticket for cancellation. They mentioned that ill be refunded my $750 from qatar as they got a waiver for me. I received $250 from qatar airways and nothing yet. Airfare's customer service staff is highly uncooperative and v rude"
Pros: "The flight crew was great. They were very kind."
Cons: "The biggest problem with my flight was it was very crowded so it was hard to get comfortable for such a long flight. I wish I can afford first class but I can't."
Cons: "Check in crew in Lahore ganged up against me and wanted to extort £200 for taking me laptop on board along with my hand carry. No where in the world has an airline ever asked me for this, and I fly a fair bit. Since I didn't allow them to extort me, they forced me to throw away my brand new Delsey hand carry at the airport. I had no cover as they threatened to if load my luggage and not let me fly home. Not a 5 start airline from any angle. Will never use Qatar again!!! This was my first and last flight with them."
Pros: "Very comfortable seats with lots of space and pillows blankets and other ammenities. It was a 13 hour flight and the staff came by many timea with drinks and snacks"
Pros: "Due to the multiple booking mess, I got a middle seat in a 14 hour long leg as all all isle seats were taken. I requested an isle seat due to health issue but no help. The flight was 1.15 hour late and made me lose my connection at Chicago.Never flying Qatar again."
Cons: "Food choices could be better."
Pros: "Price and schedule"
Cons: "Food. Waiting place at Qatar airport. Arabian crew on board due to their non- friendly attitude."
Cons: "The staff was very supportive"
Pros: "The staff were friendly"
Cons: "Food The seat were terrible The next flight rebooked because the first fight were delayed"
Cons: "They cancelled our flight without informing us from Doha to Miami, so they were going to fly us to Doha at 3 a.m., take us to hotel, and then have us fly the next day. This was the third time this airlines cancelled a flight on us for the same trip. The first two times were traveling from Miami to Delhi, we had to change our itinerary because they cancelled the flight, and we had to fly on different dates. This caused a series of hotel changes and cancellations costing us a lot of money. On the flight that we finally got from Doha to JFK, the man sitting next to me SMELLED LIFE THE FUNK OF 40,000 YEARS. It is unbearable. Thirteen hours of pungent body odor that even the flight attendants acknowledged was horrific. It was a miserable experience flying with this airline for what was to be the trip of a lifetime."
Service is excellent. The boys lanes are all old and outdated, that’s after 6 different flights. Food is ok, but definitely Turkish food. You must ask for alcoholic beverages, it is not given readily. We had a 14 hour layover and supposedly an overnight hotel was provided. That turned out to be a 3 hour fiasco at midnight which TA did not make easy or offer assistance.
Pros: "friendly staff"
Cons: "encouraging passengers to do more social distancing at gates"
Cons: "Seats are very comfortable! Very nice flight, crew, entertainment screens are large,"
Cons: "Flight delayed missed connection lost bag"
Pros: "The flight was quite good, with pretty tasty food, plenty of food and drinks, chairs reclined quite a bit, little extra and gifts for kids, slippers, socks, ear plugs."
Cons: "Boarding prices very disorganized. No announcements and a crowd sprig where everyone just pulled at the gate. Very few announcements in general."
Pros: "Well priced airline with higher levels of service than contemporaries. But contact with them is a challenge. Getting breakfast on the first leg was great."
Cons: "Could not check in online so got a middle seat at airport. Airport in Istanbul is very spread out. Be ready to walk. Give up on boarding groups or the reality of announcements."
Pros: "Noise cancelling headphones make the long flight a lot more bearable and relaxing. I like HOW they build the menu even though i have allergiee ane cannot eat everything. Crew all had good attitudes which is nice."
Cons: "Late to board, slight cluster due to that. Being on time with connecting flights is apparently too ambitious."
Pros: "The staff is very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "It was the best"
Cons: "The best"
Pros: "Food Free wine and drinks Good movie selection Good headphones Good and nice team"
Pros: "Everything was great, thank you for your service."
Cons: "Pilot needs to learn how to land"
Pros: "They crew were very pleasant and polite. It was one of best flights I have had."
Cons: "They're wasn't anything I didn't like."
Cons: "I am handicap and had to take my carry on baggage off the plane with the help of other passengers so I decided to take a different airline back to my surprise the help me with my luggage and carry on and from the moment I arrived at the gate toll I got out of the airport in jfk I was not allowed to pick ip my baggage they did everything I would like a call back from you 2036757227"
Pros: "There was ample leg room in economy. The food was good. Plenty to eat. Good selection of entertainment. Boarding was relatively good."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that my U.S. bound plane had to be boarded from the tarmac. I’m assuming it had something to with u.s. security issues with carriers from predominantly Muslim countries. The crew need to check passengers that want to place their feet anywhere except the floor or footrest. I see exactly how fights happen in the planes. It is not ok to place ones feet on someone else’s armrest."
Cons: "I was on the phone for 4 hours, went to Turkish office in New York City (they didn't agree to see me), called various sales offices without obtaining a resolution. The only option I have is to lose the full fare of this ticket."
Pros: "Great food, great plane, shortest flight."
Cons: "The restroom is too narrow on this plane, at least the one I tried. They ran out of one entree since everyone wanted chicken and not the fish. They should know this and make more chicken available and less fish. But I tasted both and both entrees were good. The "sour cherry juice" is great."
Pros: "The crew was kind and the food was good, the birding process was quick and easy."
Cons: "I had to ask 5 times in 15 min. for a blanket before anyone paied me attention. It takes way too long to have your food tray picked up after meals are served. This is important for me as I travel with a small child."
Cons: "If you are members of the same star alliance, you should step up your customer service and transfer bags with your sister company. also Kayak should not make layovers so short. Airlines that are notorious for late departures will cause your bags to be routed wrong, or not at all. poor job all around on customer service."
Pros: "I definitely recommend Turkish Airlines because of the services offered and customer service."
Cons: "Delayed yet again"
Pros: "Since we are first time travelers going from Chicago to Rome, Italy via Istanbul, we cannot compare to other airlines. But, we had a very good experience & the food, services and entertainment rvice were very good! The airfare too was excellent."
Cons: "Not certain if it's typical in long flights/but it was very difficult sleeping in these seats."
Cons: "The attendant open the door on me while I was using the restroom, I didn't care for that, he can see that the restroom is in use ."
Pros: "As always, great entertainment system. Constantly updating and improving."
Cons: "For some reason, I didn't get the option to choose a meal type at check-in, as I sometimes have in the past. Seeing as it's Passover, and I don't eat meat, I wasn't really able to eat much from the default meal I was given."
Pros: "Great seat (3A), great service and food. Very friendly crew. Entertainment is great with plenty of movies."
Cons: "Check in in Istanbul was long and confusing due to new safety measures. I had 4 different passport checks with one pat down search and carry on search. Not enough time to even enjoy the Turkish air lounge. However I do. appreciate the safety measures and the effort that come with it. I rather be safe than sorry. The security personnel was very friendly."
Pros: "I like everything about my flight. The cabin crew are true professionals and were very helpful to me."
Cons: "I really cannot think of anything that I didn't like."
Pros: "Desserts were good. Food variety and options were good. Comfort/Entertainment on flight were exceptional. Timely take off and landing."
Cons: "The variety of food was nice, but the main coarses were below average-Dry chicken as well as over cooked pasta. Trash wasn't collected often enough. Flight crew were friendly enough, but I raved about last years Turkish Airlines flight, but this year it was just so-so and I'm not exactly sure why."
Pros: "Seats and entertainment"
Pros: "Some staff wer helpful"
Cons: "Mostly as a mother traveling with a stroller, they expected me to haul everything on my own. Stroller,car seat, child, two bags! They were impatient and impolite, unresponsive when I used the steward attendance call for water or to move my child's tray (for over two hours)... there was much I didn't care with this airline, from their customer call service (I filed a complaint) to the state in which my box arrived in Mumbai (again filed a complaint but no one folllowed up with me). I wouldn't recommend this airline to anyone, especially if traveling with a child."
Cons: "I asked the website to change the destination. The reply came 12 hours before the flight. I couldn't wait so i took another flight and paid for another ticket."
Pros: "Food, entertainment, and crew were great!"
Pros: "Missed my flight because the airport changed gates and didn't announce it. Was told I could pay a penalty o in excess of $450 to be placed on another flight, meanwhile same flights from Istanbul to Amsterdam were going for $213. I will avoid Turkish Airlines at all costs. Customer service is terrible. The most unprofessional, rude, ignorant, and disrespectful staff represent Turkish Airlines at IST. Furthermore, an email complaint has been ignored."
Pros: "This flight had good leg room. The entertainment appeared to be excellent--however I did not use it due to the serious delay and the fact we were flying from 3:00 to 5:00 AM..."
Cons: "Boarding/takeoff on this flight was additionally delayed over an hour. As above, on this leg of the return flight, we didn't receive the meals we initially ordered."
Pros: "I liked that it wasn't so crowded on the plane and that I had a window seat. I appreciated the meal and beverages offered."
Cons: "There wasn't an option to select what I wanted to watch or hear during my trip."
Pros: "Good food, boarding according seat numbers enforced"
Cons: "Very old plane, entertainment system not working, crew not that attentive. Baggage delayed."
Pros: "Food, service,timing"
Pros: "There were a lot of very good experiences with Turkish Air. I was pleasantly surprised how friendly and courteous the staff was. Overall, the trip was a pleasure. I would fly with Turkish Air again."
Pros: "Staff were very friendly"
Cons: "I picked specific seats when i checked in online. Instead I got the worst seats me and my wife. Plane made unusual noise and I am a frequent flyer."
Pros: "Leg room and TV selection was excellent"
Pros: "Very nice crew!"
Cons: "Very hot in the plane"
Cons: "We reserved the seats we wanted on all our flights. On every leg of out trip Turkish Air reassigned us to very poor inside seats without notifying us. I will not fly Turkish Air again."
Pros: "Best menu vs. previous 3 Turkish Airlines flights on this trip. Great movie selection. Accommodating crew. Comfortable chairs. Nice travel packs."
Cons: "Bathrooms were very dirty by half way through the trip. Crew should keep them cleaned. Free Wi-Fi should be the standard on such a long flight. More leg room needed for Americans & Europeans above average height. Larger water bottles should be passed out before sleeping hours. Each passenger needs a personal fan. Temperature was too warm. Gate agents in Istanbul had a very confusing set-up to get on plane. Gate agents not empowered to help passengers with all issues that arise. We left item at gate in Catania, & gate agent unable to offer any help or detailed guidance to help us work to get it back."
Pros: "Love the flight crew and the in flight experience was great! They're very attentive and the flight is always comfortable."
Cons: "Booked a flight for 2pm that was cancelled after I had made hotel arrangements and the the later flight was delayed by 2 hours! We didn't arrive until 2 am and our hotel got cancelled. The airline took no responsibility and refused to help with a hotel for a 15 hour layover in Istanbul. Their customer service people are rude and extremely unhelpful, doing nothing but telling us we should have flown in a day later for a shorter layover. Seriously?? Totally unacceptable."
Pros: "The food was great, the movies were really good and there seemed to be more leg room."
Cons: "The stewardesses talked nearly non-stop when they were not working. It disturbed our sleep on the long flight back."
Cons: "Failed to offer me newspaer upon boarding....passed our seat flying with cart full of papers!"
Pros: "Great food, awesome service, great movies, and lots of space. I wish airlines in the States were this good. Nothing else compares."
Pros: "Service n presentation. On time departure n food auperb."
Cons: "Some entertainment screen not working."
Flight was a little delayed, almost missed my connection
I liked that the plane wasn't full so I could stretch out. I didn't like that there wasn't much of a choice of cuisines.
Excellent meal and great flat bed seat. Expensive wifi.
Pros: "Attentive crew, plenty to drink"
Cons: "Not crazy about the seat arrangement on this plane"
Cons: "It’s hard to get used to not having seat-back entertainment when you’ve had it the rest of the trip!"
Cons: "The meals could have been better"
Pros: "I had a window seat, the tv screen worked and I was able to watch a few good movies"
Cons: "The food quality has significantly dropped."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Was an older plan but ok. No plugs at seats."
Pros: "More leg room"
Cons: "One of the worst experience I’ve had, if not the worst. Lack of communication between flight attendants at gate was the main reason for missing our flight, after 2 delays from the previous flight. When we got to the gate they closed it at that moment, earlier than it should have. A Mr. Fenney, person in charge at the gate, didn’t help much. Just went through the motion and as slow as possible trying to help us. It seemed he just wanted to pretend he was helping us. Worse was his attitude when telling is the gate has already closed, didn’t do anything to help us, nothing at all. We had to literally get information out of him. We then went to customer service were the same thing happened, a lack of care that we missed our flight due to things out of our control. Even to the point where the agent told us “be sure to be there on time this time”, like if it was our fault we missed it (we told her the details of our situation). Till this point they don’t seem to care. They left about 15 people, that i know of, hanging. If they had better comunication between gates and waited a miserably 5 more minutes (although they closed the gate earlier then they should have) everyone would have made it. Throughout the whole process we noticed that american airlines employees did not care that many on that first flight had connection flights. They were just going through the motion, slowly while all of us were a bit desperate knowing that the layover time was going to be very close."
Pros: "No free drinks no entertainment"
Pros: "Everything was fine."
Cons: "No comments"
Pros: "The food, comfort and entertainment"
Pros: "Staff was very courteous"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "The crew was not good"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. Leg rest was uncomfortable. I kept getting notices that the flight was delayed up to 2hrs but got there and was on time. Then couldn't check in till a certain time; what's up with that?"
Pros: "I found everything to be acceptable for me."
Cons: "I was in seat 43A and the light from the galley was a mite bright from my seat, but I simply covered my head with the provided blanket and napped at will."
Pros: "Food, service, friendly, helpful Cabin crew made it a very positive experience"
Cons: "Entertainment system is really ancient, it's lagging other airlines in terms of display size & quality, user interface and programming"
Cons: "The seats were too close. The food could have been better."
Pros: "Relatively confortable seating"
Cons: "Incompetent ground staff, inadequate handling of Reservation by BA"
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Food selection is terrible. Plainer, simpler foods that appeal to more people would be preferred. If you want to attempt to serve 5 course meals, that is fine, But, please have normal backup foods. In fact you would save a lot of money buy not putting seeds and grapes in the salads, buying plain white/wheat rolls with no seeds, and much simpler appetizers/desserts. I saw a lot of food being thrown away. Mine included. If you are trying to force people to buy food before they board, you have succeeded. TV displays and remote were very poor compared to your competitors."
Pros: "Our flight attendant was very helpful when we were faced with dietary restriction issues."
Cons: "We had problems with the food. My son is allergic to tomatoes and mangoes while I am gluten intolerant. The options did not work for us. There was nowhere in the reservation that asked about this. The plane was about 80 degrees for the entire 9 hrs. My clothing was soaked with sweat. The legroom was less than on the domestic flight (AA carrier) which led my son to bother the person in the seat in front of us more. There was a male flight attendant that kept coming by to tell my son to get in his seat, which was not helpful. He is only 3."
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Delayed by more than half an hour boarding and left nearly an hour late."
Pros: "The attendants were professional and polite."
Cons: "Food needs work."
Pros: "On-time with excellent entertainment system."
Cons: "No wi-fi."
Pros: "It was great. Staff was very nice."
Pros: "No crying babies on the plane."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating. Business class was taken much better care of than economy was. Crew tried to be cheerful, but I was supposed to start the second leg at 6:30 pm (approximately), and i had to change flights, got on that plane at about 12:30 am and got into Heathrow late, missed my next connection to Prague, causing more problems when I got to Prague. Not even an "I'm sorry for the delay" from crew or ground staff. Everyone seemed overworked."
Pros: "Nice new airplane with good seat design and quiet and confortable in flight. AA crew was nice and entertainment was OK."
Cons: "Chaotic and ilogical boarding"
Pros: "Speedy, timely, very professional crew"
Cons: "A leg room is too small."
Pros: "I did pay the extra for the upgrade and I loved the extra leg room (never mind being next to an empty seat) and the food was awesome. Which is saying something. And when offered wine with my meal she made sure to let me know that they has sparkling wine! Crew was great."
Cons: "We could have seen the crew more. They were great when we saw them and it was an overnight flight so they were trying (I'm assuming) not to wake people. But it was a but sad for those of us who didn't sleep. Would have been nice to been offered an extra snack."
Cons: "The tickets were never purchased at British Airways. I showed up at the airport and nobody had a record of me ever purchasing tickets. By the time we realized that kayak had not transferred funds to the airline, the plane had left and I had to completely re-book my trip at triple the cost. I will be disputing charges and contacting fraud services to resolve this issue."
Cons: "I hope that your company will go to hell"
Cons: "1 hr waiting on the tarmak watching planes after planes taking off ahead of us without any reasons"
Pros: "Food options"
Cons: "Sold as British Airways, but actually an American Airlines flight No staff at BA counter for check-in. Had to go to American to check-in (worked this out myself) When printing tickets for check-in, was not supplied with bag tags. Had to approach counter for staff to print bag tags. Seat monitor was small and poor quality Limited movie selection"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "PS I don't think this review will even post, as this is the 3rd time I am writing it, mysteriously every time I hit "Submit" I get a error response and my review blank."
Pros: "American Airline agent in Madrid was very helpful during check-in by finding us comfortable seats together."
Cons: "We could not do check-in on-line. Same as on the way from SFO to London and then Madrid. This is absolutely unacceptable. We plan neither use British Airways ourselves nor recommend it to any of our friends or family members in the foreseen future."
Pros: "Crew was nice and comforting."
Cons: "Well, if I needed to send a fax, there was a line provided even with a mobile airplane phone that didn't work. The LCD screen didn't work on most seats, no USB charging, no adjustable headrests, blowers were barely functioning. The jet needs to be replaced especially for being an overseas flight."
Pros: "Arrived at my destination"
Cons: "Bought British Air tickets, got their partner airline American Air flight instead and didn't know of this switch until after purchase. Very rude! Crappy old plane, departed late, crappy food, mediocre service. I wanted British Air specifically as they are good in these areas."
Pros: "It was somewhat brief, compared to the 9.5 hour flight just before it."
Cons: "Transferring between my flight from Madrid to my flight to Vancouver in the Dallas airport was an incredible pain. Sure, we had to go through customs, that's expected. Sure, wait for the luggage so you can take it through, right? We did. For 45 minutes. Then the announcement arrives: international destinations don't have to carry checked luggage through customs. That's why our bags never showed up. Now we have 45 minutes to get to our plane. We made it through customs relatively quickly, meander through the halls that guides are telling us to go through in order to get to our next flight... And then we arrive at the airport entrance, just outside of security. Thankfully, after alerting a TSA agent to our situation, we're not quite brushed off, but pointed toward another security checkpoint that might have a shorter line. We get back through security, and another TSA agent (who seems unsure we'll even make our flight) gives us directions to take a train to our gate on the other side of the airport. We sprinted. And we just barely made it. American Airlines was fine, Dallas airport and transfer protocols for international arrivals/departures were tedious, inefficient, and frustrating."
Pros: "Direct airline"
Cons: "Delay, as usual on this rout because the airplane is too old and always have michanical problems From the inside it looks too old"
Cons: "My seat had a broken entertainment screen. They were restarted a few times, but no one offered me to change seats to a functional one. There were seats in business and first class that were not taken as well as a few economy. It was a 10 hour flight!"
Pros: "Comfortable, food was good. The crew was nice."
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours, in-flight entertainment and wi-fi did not function which is tough for a 9 hour flight."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Unable to upgrade seats easily, upgraded seats given freely to passengers who did not pay for upgrade. Passengers who paid for upgrade were not given a choice of the available seats. Other passengers just moved to which ever seats they wanted. Like my upgrade money back!! Other than that, pretty good."
Cons: "No roomin seats and too close to seats in font of you. I was very uncomfortable through flight"
Cons: "Everything Delayed boarding Delayed flight without informing us. 45 min Beverage (Apple juice and water was not cold) Airconditioning was non existent whille waiting for take off."
Pros: "The service was great and there was plenty of leg room!"
Cons: "Old 747-400. The seats needed replacing. My seat had a hole in the padding and a wire bar to sit on for many hours."
Cons: "These long haul flights are getting more and more cramped."
Cons: "we are 5 family members and one of us is a sick 8 years old girl. BA 193 was delayed 2 hrs while our layover was 3.5 hrs. arrived 1 hr before to go through immigration, collect luggage and transfer from terminal D to Terminal A running. made it to the gate 20 min before take off but they have sold our seats to other wait list passengers. they moved us to waiting list on another flight which was supposed to take off 1-1/2 hour later which was also delays an hour and we never made the list!!! We had to pay for accomodation for two rooms at the Element hotel neer the airprt and we are still waiting to catch a "finaly" confirmed flight Jan 4th at 1.45 pm. I plan on calling BA hoping to collect the hotel fees at least."
Pros: "The boarding attendant almost made me miss the flight over what I had already confirmed I.e traveling using an extension to a green card. Coaching needed on the topic."
