Pros: "It was okay. No complaints. I appreciated that I was given a seat near the front to run and make my next flight."
Cons: "my ticket was changed and messed up and could be due to language and understanding, I ran a lot to get to my flight and had to go back and forth between the check in line and ground force and wait out of line until a resolution was found."
Pros: "I really liked the "About my flight" application on the viewing screens because it always gave me an idea of what we were flying over and how much longer we woulld be in the air. The food was excellent and I was pleasantly surprised that I could have wine with dinner or any time the attendants offered beveragess. The attendants were always professional and helpful. They all were fluent in English as well as several other languages. It was a nice touch when the attendant wore white gloves when he or she was collecting passengers' trash after meals and/or beverage service. I loved the cheese that was served at dinner. The warm croissants served at breakfast were a very nice touch."
Cons: "Due to turbulence, I could not get out of my seat as much on the return flight, so I did have some swelling in my feet."
Pros: "I was fed food and drinks varios times during the flight and that makes me happy! I never went hungry!"
Pros: "good entertainment system, modern aircraft , friendly and competent crew"
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "Swiss chocolate is always welcome!"

The flight attendants we very kind in trying to assist me in finding appropriate food. The flight was very comfortable and the flight attendants were wonderful all-around."
Cons: "Boarding of the flight was delayed which impacted our arrival time in Zurich. I had a connecting flight- but so did at least 10 other Swiss flights at that time. The queues for customs were incredibly long and the only reason I made my flight was because I ran through the airport. I also had a challenging time with food. I am celiac and often cannot eat the standard fare on planes. I called in advance of my flight to notify someone of my allergy - and they told me the only way I could ensure such a meal was by purchasing a meal that cost $30. I was not willing to pay such a hefty surcharge for food because I had already payed a bit extra than budgeted because my partner had recommended the excellent service of Swiss. I have traveled on several airlines for intercontinental flights between Boston and Europe - and have always had my allergy accommodated at no extra cost. Once on the flight - I was offered an orange and banana for dinner and a small yoghurt for breakfast. I will be flying Swiss again in December and I sincerely hope they will be better equipped to provide for my dietary requirements."

Pros: "The flight attendants were perfect and very professional. I had a toothache on both flights back and forth. And on both flights, the crew members were always keeping an eye on me.

Pros: "Service ok"
Cons: "Horrible food, tvs didn't work, crowded."
Pros: "All good"
Pros: "We liked the crew, and the service and the food. We liked the screens and the choice of movies and entertainment."
Cons: "The seats were a bit close, but not terrible. The seats themselves were comfortable."
Cons: "Even one member of the crew was not very nice with my young daughters."
Pros: "Decent food, for airline food. I didn't starve for the 8 hours, and the included beer/wine/spirits helps a lot. Entertainment system was enough to help pass the time. This flight had USB chargers...had I known, I would have loaded up my mobile with watchable entertainment."
Cons: "It's still a cattle car for coach travel. Boarding was hectic. Called all passengers at once, which resulted in a crowd pushing to get through the two checkpoints all at once."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful with getting me "something" to eat since I did not receive a "Vegan" meal as I had ordered when I bought the flight... The meal I originally was given was included milk and cheese ingredients and after explaining what vegan actually was they did their best to help my situation. My first flight with Swiss to Switzerland included the correct "vegan" meal do I can't understand how this mistake was made by Swiss on the return flight?"
Cons: "I did not receive a "vegan" meal as ordered originally and though they were very helpful they should all be better educated regarding the differences between "Vegan", Vegetsrian, Lacto-Ovo, etc... Since I was embarrassed as I had to keep rejecting the food they gave me until I educated them on the basics of what Vegan food is... They were very helpful throughout."
Pros: "Upgraded to business class. Very professional and attentive crew."
Pros: "The flight staff was so kind."
Cons: "Delayed 4 hours at airport with no explanation why and little compensation for the experience."

Pros: "Spacious and good food"
Pros: "that they had new movies"
Cons: "the leg space is non existent, few of the seat dont even recline meanwhile some recline more than normal"
Pros: "The entertainment consoles are great, plane is modern and clean, staff on board are very considerate and helpful. Flight left and landed on time and our luggage arrived intact. Everything that we paid for we got."
Cons: "The space between the seats is very small, and the seats recline very far, I found myself a bit too tall to fit in them comfortably, as even reclined my neighbors seat was nearly pressed against my nose. My much shorter girlfriend did not have this problem, and slept through the whole flight. SWISS only has one or two check in agents at LAX, and the wait was about 3hr to process the 300-odd passengers on our 777. I know they're only running a flight or two a day from LA, but I am sure there's a speedier and more efficient way to check us all in."
Pros: "the crew members were patient , helpful. Food presentation and taste were good."
Pros: "Food and staff behaviour"
Pros: "Need better quality tvs for such a long flight and better movies There were only 4 Bollywood movies and not the latest ones either"
Pros: "Good services!"
Cons: "Our total flight time was about 17 hours - MAD- AMS-LAX. My husband and I both have an internationally approved carry on luggages with us. When we checked in - they asked us to both check in our carry on luggage. The reason why is because they said they don’t think they have enough space for our carry ons. I told the crew member checking us in that other people that was checking in with the same hand carry size luggage with us had no problems taking it with them. For being about to be on a 17 HOUR FLIGHT we should be ALLOWED to have our carry ons with us! We take carry ons for that reason! I had to argue and prove my case to the crew member to atleast keep 1 carry on with us. I thought that was an UNACCEPTABLE reason for us to check in a carry on luggage when we had a 17 hour travel time ahead of us. Not a happy costumer here."
Pros: "Nice to have a wrap for the snack."
Cons: "Would have preferred boarding by row - back of the flight first so would have been more organized."
Cons: "The cabin crew was racist! She asked me to move from a seat because she wanted another guy ( obviously from her country ) to take it! Rude and racist."
Pros: "We got a meal for a 1h flight only"
Cons: "No entertainment but normal for this type of flight"
Pros: "Overall everything was ok."
Cons: "Not that I cared at the time but having been asked for a rating on “entertainment” - there was none. Cheap and cheerful really. No extras over the likes of RyanAir."
Pros: "Service, technology"
Cons: "Could not print by boarding card and was not allowed to board in Amsterdam"
Pros: "Flight crew was fine. Food was good."
Cons: "Checking in was extensive for unaccompanied minor. But gate crew was very unnattentuve and though we showed up as first in line, they did not focus, and kept saying to wait. Ultimately our son was last person on the plane."
Pros: "Boarding was quick, Flight on time....just a regular service and plane"
Cons: "Terminal 3 Manchester is not worth staying longer then necessary, loud music, crowded....old"
Pros: "Delayed flight but staff apologized as for safety reasons."
Cons: "Very late arrival"
Pros: "The aircraft was clean"
Cons: "The food was terrible, wifi was extremely expensive (Delta had free messaging over their wifi)"
Pros: "All cabin crew were courteous. Refreshments were light. Check stuff were helpful, they did devise that the flight was full and due to space hand luggage would prefer to be put in hold free of charge. We did not have any problem with this. Plane was clean."

Cons: "Bit cramped for space"
Pros: "Crew were friendly. Flight was comforyable smooth and on time. Nice snack."

Cons: "The snack & “ solid eggs” in breakfast. Fresh fruit was good."
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Pros: "The cabin crew were good. They explained what the arrangements were for the delayed flight connections"
Cons: "The plane wasn't refueled and so was not ready for take off once the passengers were loaded. The plane had a technical problem when it tried the first take off and so it had to be abandoned. This was alarming.."
Pros: "My bagage broke"
Cons: "I paid extra fee for extra bagage which was tv and i paid insurance my tv broke and no one responces for it"
Pros: "In flight food was enjoyable"
Pros: "The food and the punctuality"
Cons: "The technology in interteiment is not touch screen"
Cons: "I don’t like the limited choice of drinks on these short KLM flights."
Cons: "It was announced I can choose between fish and chicken meal but when I requested for fish meal, I was told it’s finished. My seat was 21, and it surprised me. If something can be changed about that then your services would be much appreciated. Thank you."
Pros: "had problems checking in , in that I was charged for a suitcase! I have since checked my paper work and found thad that I had paid for a case! I will follow this up when I return to the UK"
Pros: "Crew was courteous and polite! Entertainment system had some great movies at no additional cost."
Cons: "Poor communication between delta, KLM and Air France meant that I couldn’t check in online and get a digital boarding pass. Furthermore I couldn’t use the check-in kiosks because my name was listed as Reidmr instead of Reid, which meant that my boarding pass did not match my passport. Overall this caused unnecessary delays that were compounded by the fact that I couldn’t use my TSA precheck. My main problem on the plane was that I had to struggle to get water served to me. It’s always so dry on planes and I would have liked to be able to get more than one tiny glass of water at a time. Also, would have loved a window at my window seat. Plus no WIFI!?"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful.food"
Cons: "Food was not upto the mark."
Pros: "The sandwiches were simple yet just the right touch, on all four flights."
Pros: "Usual professional and friendly service from my airline of choice for most destinations."
Cons: "Per usual, KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Strange choice of in-flight movies; no accounting for taste, I guess."
Cons: "The leg room on the long flight was less than I would have wished and it was particularly bad when the person in front put their seat back. this was a day time flight and it would have been good to have a bit more room to use a laptop."
Pros: "The pilot kept us informed periodically during our journey. I liked that we could choose our seating online. The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The plane was dirty, all seats did not have pillows and blankets. Seating was not very comfortable, particularly as there was a box attached to one of the legs of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to move my legs to an uncomfortable angle."
Pros: "Everything - Checkin, crew, food, entertainment"
Cons: "Flight from Amsterdam was 2 hours late. Caused me to miss connection on train from London to Leeds which then cost me 124 pounds to rebook. No information was forthcoming at all at the airport and there were 3 different departure times given. Absolute chaos. The airline is a joke"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "No negative"
Pros: "No chargers or tv on planes"
Cons: "At Amsterdam we were told that our checkin luggage wouldn't be at Sydney!! Some low fat meals were terrible!"
Cons: "The bags where damaged from the staff"
Cons: "KLM had bumped us to a later flight for no reason and again we had to call with a long wait to get our original connection restored, However, we did not get boarding passes during checking in Europe and thus had to go outside security in Detroit to the main check-in gate and wait 30 minutes to get the error resolved. Then it was back thorough security and a rush to the gate to get there in time to board. Lost our original seat assignment and wound up in the last row at the tail of the plane. Extremely poor coordination between KLM and Delta who operated the flight."
Pros: "The crew were lovely and welcoming. We was given snacks and drinks on the flight which was great. Take off was a bit delayed but boarding was smooth. Couldn't complain about the comfort as was only just over an hours flight."
Pros: "Staff superb. They even surprised us with an exit row and a gift for my partners birthday! Amazing. Samantha and Dennis also took time to come and personally wish him a happy birthday. A lovely touch. This airline runs like clockwork. They are just great. The sandwich and stoop waffle are nice too."
Cons: "There is a bus to the plane, so that takes a bit of extra time but they are very well organized."
Pros: "Flight was efficient enough and staff were friendly."
Cons: "It was delayed quite a bit and more on-time updates would have been appeciated."
Pros: "Very efficient boarding, fast and professional but warm and friendly. The plane was very clean and quite spacious for a two by two configuration. On time departure and landing and smoothed processing at the other end."
Cons: "Nothing to improve"
Pros: "Free wee cake."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "The fact that there are different airline carriers for one flight is hard. In my second flight they made me check a bag which was considered a carry on during my first flight"
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "KLM fed a sandwich even though the flight was only 2 hours. The crew was pleasant. Getting through the Amsterdam airport to catch a connecting flight with only an hour to do so was no big deal. Airport staff was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "I requested low fat meals. The first one, was OK. But they forgot my request for the second one."
Pros: "Flight crew on flight from Amsterdam to Cape Town were probably the most friendly and enthusiastic I've experienced and no, they were not all young. The plane was spotless throughout the flight. They were always coming around with water and juice and they genuinely seemed to care about all the passengers. The Flight back crew were just the opposite. More like the old lazy farts you get on the American carriers or BA or QF long haul. Whoo have been there for the long haul and should have stopped ages ago."
Cons: "The Entertainment images on the screens promoted Beauty and the Beast, Batman Lego movie but neither were on the system! Food quality was rubbish"
Pros: "It's the best flight I could get for such a low price. But don't expect to to get the best and newest planes around but it's still overall a good experience."
Cons: "Quite bummed that the flight didn't have wifi / USB):"
Pros: "They lost my bag."
Cons: "They lost my bag."
Pros: "The general entertainment/informative systems ran perfectly smooth without hiccups! Cabin crews were all pleasant to everyone onboard and I didn't feel as tiring after my 10.5 hours flying time as compared with other airlines!"
Cons: "The pre-booked in-flight WIFI service can hardly say it's working as the connection speed was way too slow to perform any general tasks and that's ashamed as I paid premium charges for that and didn't expect that I couldn't use the service at last"
Pros: "Fantastic service staff food and beverages"
Cons: "Just slightly hard when laying down on the seat to sleep"
Pros: "Service, staff, food and beverages all excellent"
Cons: "Seat was just a little hard when lying on my side"
Pros: "Like that you served Finnish food! many choices of films to watch was great too!"
Pros: "рейсы точно по расписанию, без задержек, персонал внимателный"
Cons: "заказала и оплатила билеты за 4 месяца до перелета, а получила место в самолпте на самом последнем ряду у туалета"
Cons: "Late change gate number. Automatic info-terminal can't read my boarding pass. Not possibility enter flight number ( AY6 - only digits, no letters) Please make WiFi low speed free. Please be atention: more than half passengers russian - there no any muvy russian audio or subtitle on TV Don't show fly with short (30min) transfering"
Cons: "Missed connection so didn't get second flight"
Cons: "Delayed over 3 hours no explanation only technical problems. No food/water offered to people waiting a considerable length of time!"
Cons: "We didn't get from Helsinki to Dublin we were redirect via Paris."
Pros: "A bit delaye in Departure but ok overall"
Pros: "Despite leaving 5 hours late we arrived only 3.5 hours late so cheers to the pilot."
Cons: "Flight from dublin was delayed about an hour. Flight from Helsinki to Chicago was delayed almost 5 hours and all they gave us were 8 euro in vouchers which isn't even enough to eat at the airport. Communication on delays was poor and staff was not helpful."
Pros: "The food was surprisingly pretty good"
Cons: "It was an old plane (A330-300). The seats are not very comfy, not much leg-room, and not very stable (i.e., when others are getting up in front or behind you)"
Pros: "The food and the crew were excellent."
Cons: "My family's seats were separated by several rows. The airport gate was not manned until several minutes before boarding time. We had to ride a bus to board the plane. There was an extra passport check. The plane had a very old and outdated entertainment system."
Pros: "All was great!"
Cons: "Not that I did not like it but it was more like a surprise to me to have not seen a single Finnish in the crew ... Again, nothing wrong, simple surprising..."
Pros: "Finnair is great. I travel with a cello and they were terrific! 1. They understand and respect musicians and the anxiety involved in traveling with a large, fragile musical instrument. 2. The staff was very responsive and helpful in answering my questions and concerns. 3. Finnair employees are a totally professional group of people and friendly, too. all the flights were smooth. I've flown a lot and for me Finnsir is always the best choice to Moscow."
Cons: "The experience going was great. Coming home, the plan was old, but it didn't bother me."
Pros: "My luggage was found and collected and transfered for me by Phillipines Airlines staff at Hong Kong airport."
Pros: "Great crew and service"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Not only no space to get comfortable but the seats themselves are not comfortable. We had better constructed seats on the hopper from Edinburgh to London. It is unconscionable that long flights are so uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Arrived ahead of time Crue"
Cons: "Sales on board"
Cons: "Could not watch any video on screen. Crew tried to reboot my and my partner's screens but they did not work for the 9-hour flight."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The seats are cramped and the most uncomfortable I've ever sat on. An 8 hour red eye flight made it unbearable. The food is pretty terrible too. This is the last and only trip I'll be flying Finnair."
Pros: "Upgrade to business class was fantastic given my then physical condition. Wheelchair assistance to and from airplane smooth and courteous, food and all of service on board fantastic."
Pros: "Flight attendants were courteous and efficient, boarding flowed smoothly."
Pros: "never happened"
Pros: "A competitive price for tickets. Website easy to negotiate. Staff pleasant."
Cons: "Having to pay about $35/person to reserve a seat. This was a hidden cost. Very little legroom. Staff did not come around enough with beverage service. Boarding was late and confusing."
Pros: "We had a row to ourselves with a seat between us. The flight was smooth. Blueberry juice. Competitive pricing."
Cons: "Having to pay to reserve seats."
Pros: "Crew was fine"
Cons: "Our luggage never made it to Rome, our final destination. So now we have no change of clothes - for the next 2-3 DAYS."
Cons: "It was n't their fault but My wife's passport expired in 91 days from beginning travel so they wouldn't let us on the plane to Italy."
Pros: "I like the Airbus A330 model's that AA flies from Charlotte on European destinations. They are the former USAir A330's and they are nice both in business and economy. There are no premium economy seats on this version. And Charlotte is an excellent airport to fly from/to."
Cons: "I wish there was a premium economy offering on this plane. The first row of economy is sold as such but is really nothing like prem economy apart from additional legroom."
Pros: "Pretty quick to get on board, entertainment was great, seat comfort was good., wifi and prices were stupidly over priced and slow.,"
Cons: "American Airlines as usual has overly priced non-working wifi on a 10.5 hour trip.. He food was ok at best.."
Pros: "The crew were trying to help and accommodate the bad situation."
Cons: "Couldn't check in online 24 hours ahead. When called Finnair on the phone, they couldn't check us in, told us we have to check in at counter, by then all good seats were taken and I couldn't sit next to my husband, and this is our honeymoon trip. It's a full flight and All upgrades were booked by then so couldn't even upgrade to business class. Requested a gluten free meal, no crew can figure out it that meal was on board (not in system nor on paper list), so at the end no food for me. I have been dying BA for last five years and this had to be the worst BA flight I have taken, absolute chaos at the check in counter and no organization. One BA counter agent Alexa tried to help but it is just too late. I expected more from BA."
Pros: "crew were great!"
Cons: "movies offered were poor. a dinosaur (great for kids), and a movie about love (horrible for all). food was yuck."
Pros: "This is not my first experience with Finnair flight and I'm very pleased with a consistency of a good service, high professionalism and I will recommend this airline to all my friends."
Cons: "The meal time was a bit odd and there was no snacks served in between midnight full meal & breakfast which lasted for about 8hours"
Pros: "It was relatively inexpensive. I didn't mind the food/"
Cons: "This flight was operated by BA. Seats were incredibly uncomfortable. When the guy in front of me reclined his head was practically in my lap. TV's were crappy and the in-flight selection was mediocre. In flights announcements were very loud through headphones."
Cons: "Never picking up garbage (telling us the next crew will do that) The cabin a mess. NO LEG ROOM. Terrible."
Cons: "It was delayed uncomfortable and terrible service"
Cons: "There was a very poor selection of movies to watch:( Last tim ei flew AA, and there was an absolutely huge choice . . . Would love to see that improved . . I think you have to cater for all tastes . . . and that definitely was not the case on my flight"
Pros: "Flights were on BA not Finnair"
Cons: "Ba website did not work properly."
Cons: "I booked this trip thinking it was with a European carrier - I had specifically wanted to avoid an American carrier. I was unable to confirm my flight online and had to ring because at NO POINT was I sent info that it was AA and not Finnair. I was charge almost $60 for this service because I did not have the right references sent with my confirmation email. T he seats were cramped and uncomfortable, I was unable to pick my seat on any flight and despite my request could not change it. Boarding at Chicago was a farce, none of the ground crew seemed to be in charge and we barely started boarding with 20 mins to takeoff. Needless to say the flight left late and we had to wait to take off, and of course had to wait to land in London."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The flight was delayed about 5 hours due to reasons no one really seemed to understand. Food was pretty bad as well."
Pros: "The entertainment and service was the only plus on this flight."
Cons: "When I booked my ticket a month in advance, British Airways was going to charge me extra for trying to book my seating in advance. They told me it would be free if I called 24hrs before the flight. I called 24hrs before and they told me they could not book my seats because the airport owned the seating. My first flight was with American Airlines, they gave me a boarding pass, however for my leg with British Airways, I had to go get ANOTHER boarding pass to board the flight. This airline was very inconvenient and I felt scammed booking with them. I would not recommend this airline to anyone!"
Pros: "The lie flat bed was nice. Lots of good, new movies"
Cons: "The seats are very narrow and you'd either have to climb over someone to go to the bathroom or someone would have to climb over you. And we're talking about complete strangers most of the time. The flight attendants were not very attentive Food was not good at all even for air plane food"
Pros: "Crew was generally friendly. Leg room in coach was ok. The price was good."
Cons: "Kayak sent misleading check in announcements. Namely, telling us to check in with Finnair, where it would not let us check in on line and no one answered the phone. We ultimately checked in with American, which was operating the flight. Not a customer friendly process. American should be embarrassed to serve meals. We think people will eat the gruel because they paid for it. No choice of entertainment. How 1990s. If this is the new American Airlines Lord help us."
Pros: "British Airways operated this flight and it was a great experience. The seats were cramped, but almost to be expected for an economy service overseas."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and very accommodating. Inflight entertainment had many choices, had a wonderful relaxing time. The food was not too good but then again it's airplane food. Overall, recommend the experience."
Pros: "The staff was very kind."
Cons: "If I'm paying for a trans-atlantic flight (at a fee of $1,000), I shouldn't be stuck on a plane that is used for domestic flights,and thus does not have the space nor the comfort of a larger plane. And, if this flight is not going to offer the amenities accustomed to a typical trans-atlantic flight (such as in-seat TV), then the price should be substantially cheaper. I will be complaining to the airline itself for this, and may not fly this airline again."
Pros: "food and crew"
Cons: "Poor entertainment offer (no quality movies and not varied options-not classic movies!!). Interactive device menu not working properly or at all. Outraging policy to offer more bookings than available seats that turned out into my wife and me being put in standby when we had purchased our tickets last July. Waiting for 30-40 minutes to claim our baggage to know it had been left in our origin destination in the end so it would probably be delivered 2 days later since the next flight would arrive the following day but late in the evening and more time wasted on the lane to claim for it that caused to miss our connecting train that would take us home and we had to wait for another hour to take the next so we finally got home 2 hours later than expected. We will never use again another company from the one world alliance."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Hard seats Boarding was 35 min delayed"
Pros: "Modern aircraft with power, big screens etc"
Cons: "Teenage crew, poor service (not even water brought on request, all "self service" at back of flight, and not being allowed a second drink with dinner), poor language skills (crew not very helpful when 2 hour delay meant I could miss connecting flight, suggesting I "walk fast")."
Pros: "Fast and efficient boarding and friendly and efficient staff. Landed 15min ahead of schedule."
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "We were 2h late"
Pros: "If the flight would have leave in time we would receive our luggage in time"
Pros: "Late leaving - no reason or apology. A bumpy flight all flight. Food almoat inedible. Seat gave bum axhe after 45 minutes. Staff friendly, but they dropped my meal"
Cons: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "Plane left more than 40 minutes late with no explanation or apology."
Cons: "1/ the transfer crew needed 50 mn to enter my son’s visa number in her computer and she almost let us miss our flight 2/ we were separated (party of 3, my son being 5 YEARS OLD) - how can they allow a boarding and expecting my 5 year old to do a 10 hours flight BY HIMSELF???? 3/ no kids menus, even if I had ordered it before 4/ food in general was very mediocre 5/ crew was unprofessional and they acted bored"
Pros: "Absolutely everything perfect."
Cons: "Through my own fault I ordered a different seat instead of window seat. :)"
Pros: "Boarding was on time"
Cons: "flight was delayed by 20 minutes Boarding got me through Sky priority quickly. Had to then wait in the boarding tunnel as the cabin was not ready. large queue Seats were exactly the same as economy so offered no added benefits apart from the meal on board parked in a distant area of the terminal and had to shuttle bus to 2E which meant a very tight transfer"
Pros: "The crew and flight was faultless"
Cons: "We were not advised of a flight number change or checking in location change. This could have resulted in us missing our flight."
Cons: "Couldn't make the connection....Overall....an aweful experience!"
Pros: "The quality of service from the staff and their courtesy. A great asset of the airline."

Pros: "Courteous crew"
Cons: "Booked assistance and got dumped at the gate 3hrs before departure, no English spoken and didn't even ask if my mum needed the bathroom or if we wanted to do some shopping. Just in a rush to get rid of us. Flying only KLM from now."
Cons: "The company simply lets passengers board a fulled booked flight with far too much luggage. Result, take off 20 minutes late because there was not enough room for luggage in the overhead compartments. I was flying with just a small backpack that went under the seat"
Pros: "The food was pretty good and the staff were friendly. During our transfer in Paris, my mum had a medical emergency and had to go to the medical centre. As such wr couldnt go to our final destination in Morocco and had to get our luggage off the plane. The staff at the AF counter were very helpful in that aspect. And when one of the luggages was completely damaged, it was replaced it with a brand new one which was fantastic. On the way back, we had some issues with the ticket because we didnt go to Morocco as planned which resulted in some trouble checking in. But the staff at the counter were quite helpful."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "I was asked to change my seat repeatedly"
Cons: "Its been a week. My trip has ended. I still do not have my bags. Terrible customer service."

Pros: "Efficient on and off Staff polite and helpful"
Cons: "The air France flight was overbooked and we had been in standby until the last minute"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Pros: "Missed connection and it was airport not Delta that was the problem. Not a good way to start a vacation. Rating is for the Paris Airport, not the flight crew or Air France employees. Still sitting in the airport when we should be at our destination."
Cons: "Hundreds of people missed their flights. Delta had us into Paris with an hour and a half to get to connecting flight. Missed flight due to huge delay in passport approval. They seemed completely unprepared."
Pros: "Personal treatment I have received as I was with a 7 months baby. An agent helps me to carry my hand luggages up to the plane entrance and to pass in priority"
Cons: "2 hours delayed..."
Cons: "Business Passngers have to wait in the same bus to board the flight what is the point then...."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Food could be a bit better. White bread is unhealthy."

Pros: "Airplane staff were good"
Pros: "There was enough leg room"

Cons: "Each time the space in this planes is smaller. Surprising, it was very hot all the time."
Pros: "Amazing service, seat and FOOD"
Pros: "Good entertainment selection, and staff all very friendly. Food was pretty mediocre - main course was nice but the breakfast especially left a lot to be desired."
Cons: "The flight arrived late with no clear explanation as to why. Then there was no EU queue at immigration, so more time wasted."
Pros: "tool me safe from one airport to another"
Cons: "wait time, food"
Cons: "Wheel chairs for my ill and aged parents was not provided"
Pros: "Panamá airport is a disaster, unorganized and dirty"
Cons: "Panamá airport"
Cons: "Late...delayed from algiers"
Pros: "The crew was very comfortable speaking two languages and friendly. They also had air conditioning! This was great because it was strangely hot in Paris and we were sweating profusely. And our last air france experience we were so hot and it was aweful. Even though it was like an hour and a half flight they still served us sandwiches ,really good."
Pros: "Crew are efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Very small plane."
Pros: "The lounge is great, however the food is substandard to nearly every other lounge that I have used."
Cons: "The food on the plane is even worse, The staff were ok but not overly going out of their way to help with any issues, also they could at least pretend to smile."
Pros: "More seat room. 18inch width. Smaller cabins. Soooo quiet."
Cons: "I had to purchase a cup of coffee."
Pros: "LHR is ok for transit"
Cons: "BA ground staff threatening to take hand luggage off passengers as the flight was full. Very uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "The flight left 2 hours late. The seats were cramped."
Pros: "No complaints about the flight. It was so short that we didn't even have time to get a drink or snack. Quite a bit of turbulence but I think that might be typical."
Pros: "The crew The nice and friendly staff at the airport"
Cons: "Assigning one luggage per traveller"
Pros: "Checking documents on entering gate area rather than at boarding time, made for more efficient boarding"
Cons: "Delay in baggage reclaim due blockage in system"
Pros: "Online check in & boarding pass on your phone using BA app."
Cons: "Seats are quite cramped"
Pros: "This flight was what you should expect - smooth boarding, helpful and friendly crew, good food and drinks service etc."
Cons: "The wash bag is now so limited- the bare minimum (and that's in business class!). No comb even. No face wipe either. It's an obvious thing to economise on from the airline's point of view, but it doesn't really have to cost them anything. And the choice of new films was somewhat disappointing - they are relying quite a lot on older films. and no duty free at all (the crew were apparently not given the correct paperwork to allow sales). This was disappointing as I had been hoping to pick up a dual SIM gadget. None of these minus points are major, but they detracted from my enjoyment of the flight"
Cons: "No adapters availNle for the nonstandard power outlets."
Pros: "London to Seattle: decent boarding experience; terrible crew (except the very nice guy)."
Cons: "London to Seattle: I was traveling with young kids, and whenever I asked for something- even as simple as ginger ale - they made it seem like I was bothering them. Also, the toilet ran out of toilet paper."
Pros: "Got my bags faster than any other flight I've had."
Pros: "The journey Bengaluru to London Heathrow was very comfortable with sufficient leg room. However the journey London Heathrow to San Diego was not comfortable. This is because the seats are so designed that the Seat mounts come in the way of stretching your legs. It is improperly designed which can be checked out with any expert in ergonomics."
Pros: "I'm a regular flier. I'm a British Airways Gold Member and inflight a lot. Best Cabin Crew Hands Down."
Cons: "Extremely old aircraft. Entertainment was terrible with old screens which had half the pixels missing, mapping was 1980s style. It's about time BA updated or got rid of these old planes. Seat would not recline as we were stuck in the very back row of economy. Very uncomfortable experience. BA, this is no longer good enough - relying on customer loyalty will no longer work!"
Cons: "Both legs were late. Outgoing was significantly late. Surprise charge of 75 euros to check a bag. Almost as much as a seat."
Pros: "The welcome drinks and hot towels (premium economy) are good. As is the drinks trolley before meals. The seats are just OK"
Cons: "Major gripe is seat allocation we had several issues but the worst was being issued with a boarding pass and seats from London to Sydney only to have them changed to inferior seats at Singapore with the ultimatum "sit in the new seats or get off the plane". Excellent for customer relations, we won't be traveling BA again"
Pros: "The service was great"
Pros: "Overall quick, easy and event free...just as flights should be."
Cons: "Plane got a little hot sitting at the gate and our seats were the only ones that didn't have air vents."
Pros: "Food was excellent"
Cons: "seats were cramped, insufficient leg room"
Pros: "Two empty seats next to me"
Cons: "1.Cabin staff would not move trolley to allow me to pass to give a gift sitting forward of me for an unreasonably long time. 2. Being accused of being abusive when I complained"
Pros: "Nothing - I arrived eventually."
Cons: "Undue stress, over booked flight, lost luggage. Zero customer service. Will never fly BA again."
Cons: "I was sleeping during meal time and when I woke up an hour later they told me that my meal was now below the temperature that they're allowed to serve it because it's dangerous. so I got bread instead. It's ridiculous either they serve me half the meal still frozen and the other half too hot too touch or it's considered unsafe."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "BA was great especially in JFK"
Cons: "Booked through Kayak and my mums ticket was voided so couldn't board had to buy her a new ticket"
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Offer more water throughout the flight"
Pros: "The flight crew were friendly and in good humor."
Cons: "In que for boarding so long, couldn't get food or drink - hungry family!! Our flight from Rome to London in Premium Economy was disappointing. Not even the smallest snack or drink of water for free. No food available for purchase, only potato crisps. No ice for warm bottle of water purchased....come on!"
Pros: "Great crew and food"
Cons: "Seat pitch at 29" in club europe. Had to sit diagonally for 3.5 hours. New slimline seats"
Cons: "like all the other airlines you get nickelled and dimed to death"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic, food and drinks were of a very decent standard."
Cons: "Boarding was in a cramped corner so a bit confusing, no enetertainment at all on a (very) old plane."
Pros: "Bording was quick"
Cons: "Crew was serious, absolutely not happy to smile Genuine smile is really appreciated whenmeeting custimers. Food trolley/ drinks came to customers and before we could react it was gone. When we asked them back they were not very happy looking . Seats we not comfortable."
Pros: "Even though unavoidable security delays made my husband and me last on the plane, we were able to board, and made all our connections. THanks!"
Pros: "The crew were pleasant and polite. Energetic, good ambassadors for BA."
Cons: "The plane was dirty. My tray table hadn't been wiped down in a long time, and the prior passenger's used flight socks had not been removed from the drawer. The pillow was laughable - - flat as a pancake. . One of the business class lavs was out of service. . This was an overused 777 desperately in need of a refurbishment. And don't get me started on the ridiculous 2-4-2 seating in business class. How does BA think it can get away with it, when competitors offer 1-2-1?"
Pros: "Food good and very attentive and friendly Cabin crew Amanda made the flight a pleasure."
Pros: "Smooth boarding and on time on both flights. Food was decent."
Cons: "(1) Some in-flight entertainment issues which meant it wasn't working for about 30minites. (2) I know the crew have a hard job and have many difficult passengers to deal with. Even so I do find there's a bit too much "attitude" shown by some members of staff. On my flight to London, a mother with a young child wanted hot water and the staff (middle aged British male) was trying to tell her repeatedly she should say "please" when she asks. She was asking politely so this behaviour was rather poor in my view."
Pros: "I was traveling alone with my baby. Everyone was very helpful"
Pros: "Plane left on time and arrived on time. Went up and came down again without any fuss. Cabin crew were efficient."
Cons: "Boarding took too long. Whilst I was travelling posh at the front of the aeroplane, why not fill it up from the back? I would be quite happy to be the last one on board."
Cons: "None of them reminded me of the fact that I need a transit visa for the UK (I mean, isn't it rediculous? I am just staying there for 5 hours). When I called in for cancellation at the airline, they told me to talk to my agent company Cheaptickets. Cheaptickets simply told me that I can't get any money back, and was extremely arrogant and impatient. Later (for a week I was trying to save this ticket by talking to the British Embassy to see if I can get the visa done and they are just "we can't help you") they told me that I can get a refund of like 30 SGD and they promised to send me an e-mail about it. They never ever did. I also tried to change the dates and the handling fee + fair difference was like 1200 SGD (are you joking?) they simply told me, prices fluctuate... Finally I went to the check in counter desperate. The staff even refused to talk to me about my situation because simply, "there is no BA ticket office in Singapore" and told me to call them. I said the office is closed, but they are like, yeah just call them. They swept me off like a moron. Extremely arrogant, impatient, insensitive. I paid 900 SGD for nothing and a whole week of anxiety and regret. I will never take this and I will never use Cheaptickets or Kayak"
Pros: "Check-in Ticket printed by BA staff at the airport had the wrong gate number so I was sat in the wrong part of the terminal until I got suspicious and double checked the screens to find my flight had started boarding elsewhere. Entertainment system had a screen from the mobile phone you owned more than a decade ago. Breakfast was a Kellogg's chew bar. Staff onboard were excellent."
Pros: "Friendly, efficient and caring. A comfortable experience at a very low price."
Pros: "on time, friendly staff, helpful with babies"
Cons: "less and less legroom on BA! think about tall people"
Cons: "Delay. Poor food."
Cons: "Lack of snacks"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Toilet in the A320 we flew was looking a bit tired"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Being trapped at Edinburgh airport. The incompetence of BA. The shocking state of their aircraft. Their inability to understand customer service."
Cons: "The crew serving our area were terrible. Don was very rude to my elderly mother. There was a female attendant with long blond hair who was rude to another woman who was making a kindly statement. I would not choose American Airlines again given another choice."
Pros: "Everything related to the flight was very good."
Cons: "My wife lost her passport aboard the aircraft; it was not recovered. We do not feel that the BA staff did an adequate search. This caused us great difficulties with the immigration authorities at Heathrow."
Pros: "The crew was very nice! Honestly the best part of the flight, which is obviously very important!"
Cons: "The flight ended up being delayed over 3 hours, which was obviously not ideal. When we finally got on the plane, the AC wasn't working at all so it was extremely uncomfortable for over and hour I'd say - I felt like I was going to pass out while we were waiting to actually take off. The in flight entertainment system didn't work very well at all - I started a movie 4 different times because it kept shutting off, and the fast forward feature didn't work at all... Then the option to play movies went away entirely. Food was very average... Didn't even eat all of mine."
