Pros: "Yes the crew was amazing and food was good"
Cons: "Rest area could had been better"

Cons: "Food is served in heated plastic containers. I would request Qatar airways not heat the food in the plastic container."

Cons: "The lounge is a bit far from the departure gate, so I waited with regular economy class travelers. It would have been nice to have had a closer dedicated area for business class."

Pros: "Great crew, great customer service by phone, great food and entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding and deplaning took ages, but don't they always?"

Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Hard working crew members."
Cons: "No slippers for long flights."

Pros: "Crew was amazing"

Cons: "Tbilisi-Doha delayed due to no A/C. Inadequate notices. Children yelling behind me, no action taken. Doha-BKK worse. Another 1 1/2 hr delay. Woman I’ll eventually taken off. Flight deck with inadequate notices. Then searched for woman’s overhead luggage. Others with delays elsewhere. Never again."

Pros: "Staff were helpful, pleasant, and attentive. Really appreciated that due to the length of my layover in Doha, I was given a hotel room - which I hadn't asked for, and which Qatar Airlines personnel told me I might be able to get, and then arranged or me. That's excellent service!"
Cons: "I wish NO ONE's seat tipped back - space is already tight, and if everyone just stayed in their own space rather than tipping seats aback, everyone would have more room! Once the person in front has leaned their seat back, it's impossible to really use the tray, which is pretty frustrating."

Cons: "maybe they can offer more snacks on the plain"

Pros: "The seat was ok and the food was good."
Cons: "Though the staff was friendly, I found them a bit unhelpful. I was literally holding three bags and a toddler in my arms, and passed at least three airline crew members. However, not one of them even bothered offering for help. I don’t expect that from a world class airline."

Pros: "Friendly Crew, good entertainment possibilites."
Cons: "Everything has a plastic holding purse."

Cons: "The crew was in a hurry burry which didn’t give a very good experience. I would suggest the crew to be little more tolerant and make their customers feel good.foo"

Pros: "All"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "No leg room, can't stretch your legs properly so my bad knee was in pain"

Cons: "I did not like the fact that on now 3 flights I have lost miles, as on every flight I have tried to sign on as a member or frequent flyer and on all flights, there were no entry forms. This is also after my attempt to complete one on line, which I have had no response to."

Pros: "The flight went fairly smooth, the staff were courteous and the food was as good as can be expected of airline food. There were several courses and options, which is always appreciated."

Pros: "Crew are great and entertainment options are good."

Pros: "Aircraft was much better than the flight from US, food was great. The only thing I wished for was more movies."

Pros: "Have flown emirates and etihad business - now sampled the best by far. Qatar's a380 was incredible but the a330 on wind leg whilst not as nice was mademupmfor by the best crew I have experienced ever - WOULD NOT HESITATE TO FLY AGAIN"
Cons: "The Oryx system lackedmin recent movies ....that's the only complaint"

Pros: "Services"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Seat arrangements excellent Crews nice"
Cons: "Very disappointed about quality and frequently of food offered"

Pros: "It was a good flight. I'd give it 4 of 5 stars."

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: "Clean plane, esp. the bathrooms. Sufficient bathroom amenities. Attendants always checking bathrooms for cleanliness. Very friendly attendants yet not overpowering. This flight, the films are a bit better but still not the most recently films are on offer. Nobu's seafood soup noodles was the best!"
Cons: "Not interested in the menu's main courses. Fruits were not sweet at all. Must improve on your cappuccino. Nobu's seafood soup noodle did not come with chopsticks."

Cons: "I had booked the Amaya lounge for the 3,5 hours stop over. It cost $50+ and was so not worth it! Bad food and uncomfortable chairs plus it was really crowded! Next time I'll just go to a cafe! No seats at the gate when I got there. Slooow boarding!"

Pros: "Everyone on board was pleasantly and helpful and that goes a long way."

Pros: "Cabin crew was pleasant and at least smiled."
Cons: "Why was it necessary to have to queue to present your boarding pass to get into a sitting area only to have to queue again to actually board the plane? What was the point of having priority access with status with Qatar Airways as an economy passenger to get into the seating area only to have to wait for ALL other passengers to then board ahead of you onto the actual plane especially when they say they allow priority boarding for those with status on the airline?"

Pros: "Roomy seats & clean appearance and modern cabin."
Cons: "This is an isolated experience on Qatar but a couple of the crew members had poor attitudes. One flight attendant talked down to passengers during boarding and while serving. Another flight attendant acted as if if she was being inconvenienced when asked for water. The seat did not function properly. It would recline on its own which caused constant adjustment throughout the flight."

Pros: "The plane was neat, clean and the services was world class. I was made to feel at home with service always at my finger tips."
Cons: "Nothing to report."

Cons: "The boarding was unusually long. We stood in line for twenty minutes to board the plane. This was difficult for many. The staff and airlines were unorganized and scattered."

Cons: "It was not at all a smooth travel experience. The original flight was from Mumbai to Doha to Los Angeles. After reaching Doha they said the flight is full !! They made me travel via Boston where it was so much hazzel to catch the next connecting flight. My bags did not come in the same flight. Next day I had to go to the airport again to bring them. I did not had anything to wear, I had to purchase basic stuff. It was a very inconvinient travel. I want compensation from Kayak as you guys confirmed my booking and I come to know at the Doha airport the flight is full. HOw did you issue me a ticket??"

Pros: "Punctual"
Cons: "No beverage service"

Cons: "The entertainment system did not work properly"

Pros: "Very friendly staff, prompt service, smooth boarding, clean cabin."
Cons: "I usually love the food on Emirates but this was really not good. Barely edible!"

Cons: "Me"

Pros: "Crew were great, entertainment was great, all in all a really comfortable flight despite not getting an aisle seat which would have made it even better"
Cons: "I discovered when I hit Dubai that despite having an eight an a half hour layover that I didn't qualify for the free hotel I thought I did qualify for as someone with an eight hour plus flight so that was a little disappointing have had it before so assumed it was on all flights but that ended up being a negative surprise..."

Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent toilets are clean Gluten Free meals are available, that's a big plus"
Cons: "Lots of movies to choose from however I felt the choices were similar in a way! ( Example: you'll find the Drama movies are almost the same as the Romantic movies or the Comedy movies)"

Pros: "Professional staff"
Cons: "Cramped hot flight. Paid white a bit more than other carriers, as I was under the impression that seating would be comfortable, the food great, and beverage service would be frequent"

Pros: "All the teem all the services"
Cons: "Non"

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "No response when requested for help from flight attendants multiple times from SEA to DXB. Every time I have to walk to them for help."

Cons: "The seats on the 777-300ER were tiny compared to the seats on the A380 from JFK to dubai. My wife and I are both small people and we were cramped. This is very unfair to us and even so to larger people on such a long leg The entertainment screens were also very poor. Small, low res"

Pros: "Very responsive and friendly crew"
Cons: "Would like to see more vegetarian options"

Cons: "I thought I had paid for window seats."

Cons: "Leg space horrible. Wasn't even able to fold my legs just a bit, was stuck in one position resulting in severe neck pain."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Overall top service."
Cons: "A little too directive, exemplified by ordering people to pull down their window shades, for my Americans can mentality. Otherwise great!"

Cons: "I did not like that only one bag is allowed on the flight if you are in economy."

Cons: "I like it"

Cons: "Emirates did not allow us to select the food preference as we had booked through a third party. They literally starved us for 14 hours as we r vegetarian and could not eat meat laden foods."

Pros: "Crew was bored, never smiled, obviously not Enjoying their jobs. Food was no better than any other airline, Which means it wasn’t very good. My small carry-on bag was 2 pounds overweight so they made me check it, they weigh every bag. We were looking forward to our flight because we had been told by several people that emirates Airline was special… It was not."

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Crew was surly, never smiled. They all seemed very tired and intolerant of customers. Service was minimal. Food was tasteless and salty. Water was offered only once on a 14 hour flight. Aircraft was very cramped- no room to walk in the aisle without hitting the aisle seats. Overhead compartments were crammed full and it was very difficult to find space for a small bag."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They recently started charging unnecessary excess fees for overweight. I traveled from Seattle to Hyderabad via Dubai. I carried my cabin bag from Seattle with weight of 9kgs and purchased few duty free items of 2kgs(2 liquor bottles and1 dates box). They have asked me to pay $150 for excess weight. One passenger traveled from Houston with a bag of 11kgs. Items include 1 laptop documents and tablet. She didn't shop in Dubai. She was allowed in Houston but was charged $100 in Dubai for same weight."

Pros: "I liked the service but the problem is carry on bags"

Cons: "Tiny seats. No leg room. No storage under the seats."

Pros: "The flight crew we're fine and helpful if you needed something."
Cons: "The TV for my seat would cut out when the person in front of me reclined. The charging plug also didn't work."

Cons: "Booked an aisle seat in early April. Emirates reassigned me a middle seat, this on a 13.25 hour flight! Refused to rebook me back to original even though I showed them my original booking. Never Emirates again! Ever."

Pros: "Emirates is still the best option for travel from Seattle to South Asia. Flight time is convenient and boarding process is flawless as always,"
Cons: "In flight meal service and staff attention is not the same as a few years ago. The fees on advance seat selection is ridiculous. After spending close to two grand on a return ticket, Emirates wants me to spend another 40 bucks each way to heya seat of my choice ?"

Pros: "Crew were efficient and moved things through"
Cons: "Food could be improved as was movie selections"

Pros: "Entertainment options, boarding process"

Pros: "Entertainment facilities very good. Important for those long trips. Food good too"

Pros: "All went fine"

Pros: "I made it to my final destination safely"
Cons: "Not much overhead space for your bags, so we have to keep them at the bottom of our feet....i was travelling with a senior on a wheelchair and the idea of her going up and down the stairs into and out of the airplane wasnt so pleasing...the cabin crew could be easily mistaken for any other passenger becase of dress code..."

Cons: "Screen was black and white most of flight"

Pros: "flight was empty so everyone had the chance to experience better treatment from flight attendants."
Cons: "no complaits"

Cons: "Be sure to take your own water bottle with you on this long 14 hour flight. Both directions it seemed that the company approach to beverages was to serve as little as possible, perhaps to keep people out of the bathrooms. But the cabin air was so dry I could barely swallow at times one way drinking only what was provided, but the other way I noticed that my jet lag was greatly reduced when I carried and consumed an extra liter or two above what was provided. At one gate the security crew asked me to dump my water, but I had a small empty bottle with me that I could fill up at the spigot near the bathroom on the plane as needed."

Pros: "The flight was empty and the luxury to choose your open row of seats"

Pros: "The Captain spoke to us a few times and the crew were absolutely amazing. Best flight Ive ever been on."

Cons: "Was required to check my small roll aboard because I had a backpack, while other passengers were allowed to carry on multiple large items."

Pros: "Great food and entertainment options on this flight. I appreciated that the flight crew asked all passengers to close the window drapes so we could all sleep. The chairs in economy seem to lay back further than other airlines which made it more comfortable."

Pros: "We were pleasantly surprised when my whole family received a business class upgrade The services on board was excellent."
Cons: "Check in at he Jeddah Hajj terminal is chaotic"

Pros: "Good overall experience."

Pros: "Great menus, get you all excited. Variety, interesting dishes. Generous with wine and drinks."
Cons: "It's... airline food. Doesn't live up to the promise of the menu. Cooked too long ago, reheated too much, ... I understand that they have constraints, that's what you get when you want to eat in the sky. But I have eaten better food in airplanes, in economy."

Pros: "Hospitality and vegetarian food Maintaining the timings"

Cons: "Food wasn't that great. They ran out of choices"

Cons: "flight left without 1/6 of the passengers. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯"

Pros: "Good access to charging, good food"
Cons: "More space:)"

Cons: "No room to move, too hot, no sound when trying to watch movies."

Cons: "Compared to Virhin Australia crew, Delta staff seem almost poorly trained in comparison. For example, Drlta crew don’t check your pass, don’t immediately move down the aisle to move along tourists busy discussing their seats and then line up for Boarding seems chaotic at best."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "food and service was amazing"

Pros: "I loved flying delta comfort. I’m going to do it more often."

Cons: "Old cramped untidy and limited drink service"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Multilpe delays"

Pros: "This was our first time flying Delta and it was a very pleasurable experience. Boarding was very straight forward and the seats allocated comfortable. A surprise for us was being asked if we would like to move seats from the back of the aircraft to Comfort Economy (we think it was to do with weight balance! but appreciated very much none the less). The flight attendants were very professional and helpful, as you would hope all attendants on all airlines would be. We'd gladly fly Delta again anytime."

Pros: "Over an hour late wth!!!"

Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Too many announcements"

Pros: "Alaska Airlines is way overpriced and way less comfortable than Delta. I’m a Delta loyalist forever now!"

Pros: "everything was very nice"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact they wasted two days of my trip with my son travelling from the U.S. to China because they didn't know about transit visa regulations. And so far they offered a 75 dollar voucher for participating merchants. Unacceptable"

Cons: "As a Platinum AFK/KLM Skyteam member I was NOT allowed to use the Delta Lounge. On the flight the meal choice was poor and the staff were not really geared to serving regular clients. The movie choice was poor. I expected better!"

Pros: "Nothing. Delta sucks!"
Cons: "Poor management prior boarding"

Pros: "Staff was extremely nice and helpful"

Cons: "Check-in Seattle was ill organized and folks cut and groused"

Pros: "Flew Business Class with miles program (United). Lufthansa always gives good basic flight experience. Watched two movies so saved some time at home. Lounges are getting better every time I fly. They are especially good, understandably, in Frankfurt."
Cons: "Nada. They get the job done."

Pros: "Tv screens, free beverages, frequent service"
Cons: "The single most cramped and uncomfortable flying experience of my life. The chair in front of me recliner lined to 4 inches in front of my nose. Couldn’t move legs or arms for 10 hours because it was so tightly packed. I couldn’t believe it was legal to fit that many people that closely together."

Pros: "My seat was next to bathrooms when everyone start using it start smelling too much very uncomfortable sitting there. Food chicken was very salted, they run out of drinks 10 hours flight dinner served at begging no snacks or anything till 2 hours before landing"
Cons: "At least air fresheners in bathrooms or something better so passengers can sit comfortably"

Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."

Pros: "Lufrhansa is a fantastic airline"
Cons: "The seat pitch and width were too small."

Pros: "We purchased seats with extra legroom. They were well worth the extra cost as we were very comfortable."

Cons: "Very bad food"

Cons: "Seats are tiny and crews English was just okay."

Pros: "Good plane and service"

Pros: "Clean(though toilets still had a little bit of smell, better than Delta and United anyway... The food was surprisingly good, way better than United and Delta! The staff is very professional. The chairs are better than what I experienced with other airlines."
Cons: "On this flight only, the toilets had a slite smell. Usually German bathrooms are an example for the rest of the world to follow in cleanliness."

Pros: "Very friendly crew"

Pros: "Cabin staff were pleasant and effective."
Cons: "I got a headache on the flight; it did go away until I got good air in Frankfort. Bathrooms were a bit low in number necessitating long waits. This has become routine."

Cons: "Rating and bad customer experience shared on web...."

Pros: "Food was excellent. Wide variety of entertainment options. Good German beer."
Cons: "Cramped seating in economy for the long flight with thin padding making me very aware of the knees of the man behind me."

Pros: "Staff were nice and friendly."
Cons: "The plane was dirty. The seatback was not clean, and the tray table was stained. The 9-hour flight did not have any USB ports or outlets for charging. The touchscreen did not work well, and my seat would not move forward or back without me pushing or pulling it. This"

Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."

Pros: "It was an overall good experience. Very well organized. Since both legs of the flight we're half-empty, it was easier on the crew too. They were nice and helpful. Everything very clean. Entertainment choices were good. Had an excellent entertainment system."
Cons: "Food was kind of bland."

Pros: "On time Boarding was convenient"
Cons: "Food Seats"

Pros: "Crew is very friendly, seats are extremely comfortable and good room overall, comfortable flight."
Cons: "Hi, To be honest, it was embarrassing to serve that dish on such a major airline. Chicken with bbq sauce and corn or something like that. Was distasteful I couldn’t take more than 2 small bites."

Pros: "Great cabin crew. Acceptable food and beverage es"
Cons: "Long delays and missed connections. Shoving more people than possible in airport bus. Disfunctional audio jack on passenger entertainment panel (same as last year (poor Maintanence)"

Pros: "The Entertainment, the Food and the nice and friendly manner of all personell."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "That was the most comfortable flight I have ever had. Famous German standards of excellence. Everything was just as it's supposed to be. Punctuality, politeness, order - just perfection. Thank you for such a great treatment!"
Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "Crew was not nice at all. They would skip us along the way while serving others, or even drop ice on us, and never said sorry once (instead, they would say it's only ice, or if I want 2 since they skipped me already twice when serving tea unlike the passengers around me on both sides). We paid nearly $6k for the 3 of us, but the crew made us feel as if we paid nothing. The entertainment system did not work well, and most of the time the movies refused to play. We were always suggested to restart, and were not even given free access to internet as an alternative. No one ever apologized for anything in the entire flight, it felt like this flight was a favor."

Pros: "The crew was extremely responsive, inviting, and constantly walking about the cabin to see if passengers needed juice or water. The boarding, for such a large flight, was pretty smooth."
Cons: "The small screens for entertainment need to be updated. It took mine a few minutes into the flight before I could access all of the entertainment options. Additionally, the touchscreen was very difficult to navigate, as it jumped between non-responsive and too sensitive throughout the flight. Furthermore, the headphone jack should be updated, so that passengers can use their own headphones without an adapter. The headphone audio setup at my seat did not work very well."

Pros: "Flight went smoothly boarding was a little delayed."
Cons: "Getting to gate 10 minutes after boarding time and no one had boarded yet."

Pros: "None"
Cons: "Most of it"

Pros: "Service , on time"

Pros: "it was quite comfortable"
Cons: "luggage got delayed by 2 days. No dresses to even wear. Plus lufthanse didn't know where my bags were."

Pros: "Boarding was done very quickly. Unlike the norm nowadays, people weren't cramming every single inch of space in the overhead. In addition, the flight wasn't full so my travel companion got to enjoy a full row to himself while I enjoyed an empty seat next to me to stretch out. The food was very good. The staff came by quite a few times to offer orange juice or water. The entertainment syren was excellent. I watched four full movies on the trip and have in mind at least a couple more for the return leg."
Cons: "Not a thing."

Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"

Pros: "Great service!"

Pros: "The boarding process made it easy to find my seat and get settled in."

Pros: "service, good quick flight"
Cons: "late departure in Frankfurt; high noise level of the Embraer plane;s engines; failing AC in the cabin"

Cons: "There was light turbulence in some parts during the flight but the captain never turned the "fasted hour seatbel on" sign which was strange."

Pros: "Liked the crew, the food, blanket and pillow."
Cons: "Frankfurt airport wheelchair service needs to be better administrated."

Pros: "The crew members were friendly."
Cons: "Fro dinner the quanty was very little. I weigh barely over 100 lbs, and l don't eat very much. Still even for me there wasn't enough, so I got hungry after a few hours. For breakfast the egg was rubbery. It was disappointing."

Pros: "OK"

Pros: "Our attendents were clearly focused on our needs. Efficient and still very human and kind. A real treat."

Pros: "Big airplane and therefore no turbulence. Food was good for airplane food. Boarding was pretty fast considering the number of people. Didn't have problems finding overhead luggage space"
Cons: "Sat next to the bathroom and therefore repeatedly got bumped by people and carts as they passed. The stewardess was polite but had an obvious fake smile pasted on her face. A bit more honest facial expression would have been more comfortable."

Pros: "Everything! Excellent stewards too!"

Cons: "You lost my luggage"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Few choice of movies"

Pros: "Overall the flight was ok"
Cons: "I was not a fan of the food but more important, the headset lack was broken. I had to pull the cable constantly to be able to hear something"

Cons: "I really felt the food was not as good as I had on other lines. To help I had the chicken - and the veggies with it were mush as was the spinach with the egg dish - which also did not have much flavor"

Pros: "Thank you for the great experience!"

Cons: "A kid next to me keep shifting and kick me and nudge me all the time. His dad was trying to stop him from moving too much but couldn't control entirely. I kept waking up"

Cons: "I was denied boarding. No one told me that my passport had to be 6 mo. to expiration. Why the hell do you even put an expiration date if you're going to deny all travels prior to 6 months?"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. No compensation given either"

Pros: "The price!"
Cons: "Internet connection."

Pros: "Smooth flight without event. On time landing. Efficient deplaning."
Cons: "Newer plane. Seats , entertainment, cabin crew."

Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was unbearably hot"

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Not applicable."

Cons: "Only one round of drinks served?"

Cons: "Should have the seat assignments opened in advance for international passengers, especially who paid for business class."

Pros: "Crew was very nice"

Cons: "Baggage delayed on arrival"

Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "The food, inflight entertainment. Our flight was delayed by over an hour."

Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly staff"
Cons: "Very poor movie choice and poor quality screen"

Cons: "Long wait at the gate upon arrival at Heathrow."

Pros: "Staff were lovely."
Cons: "Old plane with an ancient entertainment system, generally cramped and uncomfortable. Paid for a specific seat but was given a different one."

Pros: "Kind crew helping a frightened passenger"
Cons: "Terrible, frightening turbulence and illogical birding. Why not bore back of plane to front of plane?"

Pros: "I enjoyed all of the amenities provided on this flight, the service and food was great and I got to enjoy 3 new movies I'd been meaning to see."
Cons: "No complaints here! It was a great way to start off our vacation."

Cons: "There was a very large group of teenagers that were very loud the entire flight and disrespectful to crew and other passengers"

Pros: "Food was great. Sleeper amazing- I was asleep for at least 4 hours"

Pros: "Friendly people-excellent ammenitties-great flight. A new & improved airline from prior experiences."
Cons: "Nothing-all was great."

Pros: "The Crew were great"
Cons: "Boarding could have been more efficient"

Cons: "I had to watch movies with barely an audible and only one side of my headphones worked. It wasn't the headphones but rather the sound in the arm where the headphones plug in. Made a 10 hour flight even longer."

Pros: "Crew on flight friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Could never find anyone and at check in counter and gates. For this reason will never fly British Airways if possible."

Pros: "Eats are comfortable"
Cons: "We were on the ground for three hours before we could take off. I ended up missing my flight from London to Madrid and my luggage got lost for a day because they switched my flight."

Pros: "Your terminal is very pleasant and not the worst to have a delay. .....and I know it's beyond your control when incoming planes are delayed"
Cons: "No gate and we were bused to get on the plane the old fashioned way......no big deal for me, but this was the return leg from escorting my elderly mother home and I was very glad she wasn't with me."

Pros: "Let’s face it, B.A has proper service with friendly crew members, offered up grade to premium economy which I normally take and was more than happy to pay for."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "There was an abusive passenger sitting behind me that kicked my chair the entire flight. They were angry that they didn't have more space and that I wanted to have my seat back. I offered to put it up during meal times to make sure they had enough space but that wasn't good enough. The crew knew what was happening and tried to get the other passenger to stop but the passenger persisted. The crew refused to upgrade me even though I had paid for an aisle seat and there were no other aisle seats available for me to move to. I find this service unacceptable. I probably won't be willing to fly BA again as they obviously care more about money than ensuring their customers are comfortable."

Cons: "3 hours on the plain waiting for take off. Cheap sandwich for breakfast."

Cons: "The flight was cancelled, it was very difficult for me to do all rearrangements."

Pros: "The flight attendants were all very nice. The flight was on time."
Cons: "I'm told (late) that BA does not subscribe to TSA prep in the USA. That meant going to the TSA line first, being rejected, going back to check-in to know the reason, then back to the standard long line. Once onboard my seat's entertainment system dies not work. 3 reset attempted with no luck. A month ago, on another long haul flight the same happened. Food was very bad. Salmon so overdone that it was hard to cut, overcooked vegetables and some lukewarm mash potatoes."

Cons: "I was not allowed to board, because I was told I needed a Turkish Visa, even to change planes, and may have lost my ticket payment."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food, artificial not tasty"

Pros: "Friendly attendants, good food and great movie selection. All flights on time!"
Cons: "Very crowded - seats are so close. I’m 5 feet 8 inches and normal weight and was squished!"

Cons: "I ended up being rerouted to LA!"

Pros: "Smooth and uneventful flight on a 747 Staff looked very smart and were efficient"
Cons: "Check in queue, queue at gate, seat was not clean, food poor The World's favourite airline is becoming impersonal"

Pros: "Flights were on time, staff was courteous."
Cons: "Food was not tasty, leg space was inadequate, air conditioning was not adjustable,"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Flight boarded late, left late, making my connection very tight and my baggage didn't arrive with me. Very inconvenient"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "No 'service'. No sign of crew. Screen didn't work. Not a lot for the money!!!"

Pros: "What a different experience in relation to last week!"

Cons: "No direct communication. Really bad"

Pros: "Friendly, efficient crew, entertainment & flight info on monitor."
Cons: "Economy seating. Quite cramped.. I would make sure to book at least Premium Economy in the future."

Cons: "Food was unappetizing and down to one choice by the time it got to us in Premium Economy. nothing premium about it."

Pros: "Seattle to London was wonderful in all aspects great service comfort and amenities."

Pros: "Spacious seating."

Pros: "Got me back to the UK"
Cons: "Lack of storage around seat Lack of privacy Felt like a patient on a trolley Heavy handed portion control Club larder stocked with leftovers Poor quality tableware, that was chipped"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Was not able to check in through to Cape Town, only JNB. When arrived in JNB, British Airways flight was not clearly identifiable from ticket (no flight number). Then the flight was delayed, and plane was old! Horrible experience"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The whole trip."

Pros: "TV screen."
Cons: "Food."

Cons: "short connection. 1/2 of luggages didn't make it. Same instance as on outbound flight"

Pros: "That BAA have WiFi on the plan and the flight back did not even have USB charger . In new York at at the BAA terminal they only have 30 min worth of wifi"
Cons: "The service . In general it can be better"

Cons: "After a three hour delay- the flight was canceled. Was able to rebook flight for next day but took eight calls to find a room for the night. It was a bit of a nightmare. Had pre paid for up graded seat but one was not available on the re-booked flight."

Cons: "No wifi"
