Cons: "The second flight (Bogotá to Rio de Janeiro) was delayed about 3 hours. The crew mainly spoke Spanish and would not say what was going on unless you asked them. Food was okay and the Airline was completely unorganized. You can only pick your seat 24 hours prior your flight! Price is good but that's about it!"
Cons: "They overbooked the flight from Santiago to Bogota so I had to travel for 15 more hours."
Pros: "The flights were on time, with great service."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Purchased a round-trip in and out of El Salvador. On the return to El Salvador, ticket agents made me purchase a one-way return to the United States, claiming that I would not be allowed to enter El Salvador otherwise since I do not have residency there. Despite repeatedly explaining to them that I had done this multiple time before on other airlines, and that immigration in El Salvador does NOT ask for proof of return, they would not let me board unless I purchased a return ticket to the United States. As expected, I was NOT asked for ANY proof of return when entering El Salvador. The Avianca staff was uninformed, wrong, and rude. They showed no interest in listening to us or helping us solve this problem. I will now have to call and cancel this ticket, and fight to get the $25 ticketing fee refunded. Do not expect great service from Avianca."
Pros: "The tin that the coffee came in."
Cons: "Almost missing my connecting flight since the gate was changed from 52a to 51. Nice people helped me find my next movements."
Pros: "good service"
Cons: "check in process, boarding were a mess we spend one hour on board waiting to depart"
Pros: "1- The seating assignment that you think you have when you buy your ticket is not honored. 2- my phone was stolen by either the flight crew or the cleaning crew. I was one of the first passengers to leave the plane and immediately realized that my phone was in the seating pocket. I had to wait for everyone to get out in order to come back in and the cleaning crew had already pass trough my seat. I immediately called security, but what security? That doesn't exist in Avianca. I called customer service and they told me there was nothing to do. 3- Avianca is not a member of global entry, so go back in long lines. 4- Tge planes are old, no TV's on them. Your iPad is your only solution for entertainment. 5- You can't fly with an airline that tells you they can't do anything for you because a crew member stole a phone, not even try to address the situation."

No seats in my row reclined, for no reason I could discern. Coffee maker was broken in the plane so no coffee or tea.

Less crowded aircraft

Pros: "Service was fast"
Cons: "Better seats"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Proper communication"
Pros: "non stop flight"
Cons: "Crowded, small plane. No air after people had boarded while fuel was being replenished (dangerous?), sitting at gate for 20minutes. This, after a 2 hour delay. Then a rough landing in Minneapolis- plane brakes sharply and suddenly, shuddered to a taxi rate of speed. simple snacks, not very good."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Worse experience ever, flight delayed, lost connection, many hours in phone trying to fixed and anyway lost the flight, spent so many time at the airport with the front desk so disappointed"
Cons: "You guys didn't allow me to get in this plane and i missed my flight."
Cons: "When we booked this trip via Kayak, we thought that we were booking on Westjet. Westjet knew nothing about the flight when we tried to check in."
Cons: "Plane had to divert from Salt-Lake City due to a storm. My son 17 years old traveling alone once in Salt-Lake City should have been given priority for an overnight stay instead of sleeping on an airport bench! Dinner + Breakfast vouchers would also have been nice compared to the 15$ food voucher..."
Pros: "Our flight crew were great. Pilots were great too."
Cons: "I missed my connection due to weather in Minneapolis. Was diverted into Milwaukee, but nope we are diverted to Chicago, but wait no we go to Milwaukee. Deboard into a close gate area. Rest rooms were closed. Then once refueling is done get back on and make Minneapolis at 12:15 am. Connection missed"
Pros: "The on board food was amazing, nothing like I’d ever had on a plane before. I was also pleased with the choices for entertainment."
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable in economy. I could not sleep and there were no air vents. Every time I tried to rest my head on the seat in front of me the screen would turn on and get super hot. I wish there was a cover or something you could turn the screen completely off."
Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing. 12 people had a connecting flight and they brought a shuttle bus. You dont see that kind of service any more 10 stars for that"
Cons: "Super small plane."
Pros: "The overall experience on the flight was quite pleasing. The flight crew created a warm atmosphere on what was a very cold morning. Seating was not the most comfortable but the wasn't unbearable."
Cons: "Delta should have a better food menu for those early flights unless the motive is to encourage everyone to eat an organic and wholesome meal prior to boarding, something we all should be doing."
Cons: "No food on board and we were hungry"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Slow boarding."
Cons: "No charging outlet."
Pros: "I liked the touch screen displays in each headrest. Seats and leg room comfortable"
Cons: "Boarding was somewhat unorganized"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Timing"
Pros: "Flight was on time/ early."

Cons: "Plane wasn’t clean"
Pros: "The movie selection was good"
Cons: "Instead of a flight from Toronto to Atlanta.. it was a flight from Seattle to Atlanta, and I only had 45 mins to get to boarding because of the last minute flight changes."
Cons: "Customs massively backed up. Somewhat disorganized"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight left 2 hours late. Did not get adequate cabin service. Put in the back in an awful seat."
Pros: "Airline and airport staff were great"
Cons: "There was no time to eat. Nothing other than snacks. The time allotted was *barely* sufficient to get from gate to gate. We were starving when we got to our destination."
Pros: "Delta always tries to do the very best. There were no issues with Delta."
Cons: "I did not like the seat assignment. It seems that when I have booked through Kayak, I get a very bad seat. In this case, it was all the way in the back - next to the toilet. The seats didn't recline, and there was no window - because we were right next to one of the engines. I will use Kayak to price compare on future flights, but I will not book through Kayak. Not sure if this is just a coincidence - but it only happens when booking here."
Pros: "On Time. Nothing else to say,"
Pros: "Friendly, leg room, on time."
Pros: "There was nothing I liked about this flight."
Cons: "Everything from beginning to end was horrible. They messed up on our seats so I couldn't sit with my parents who are both elderly and need my assistance. The flight attendants were rude (no greeting, no smiles). My TV did not work and my tray for food was dirty."
Pros: "Delta did find us a new route to get us to our final destination after west jet booked on a flight that was already sold out ."
Cons: "We had to add on an extra connecting flight . We had to then fly from Toronto to Detroit then on yo Atlanta ."
Pros: "Flight went off pretty well. On time no complaints."
Cons: "Somewhere somehow you need to know that, although partners, Delta and West Jet do not share computer systems and that they are two completely different airlines. This affects ,sometimes, how luggage is handled especially when you land in another country and you have to manually transfer your own - and nobody tells you. You actually change airlines. Itinerary implies West Jet controls the entire thing. Not the case. Better job economic explaining what to With luggage and that, while itinerant implies 1 airline, they are only partners and should be treated separately."
Cons: "767-400 with the old entertainment system. small screen with poor quality and a number of people's had to be reset multiple times."
Pros: "The flight was pretty empty so my entire row was empty so very comfy and it was the new bigger plane so lots of carry on room too."
Cons: "Nothing...I have no complaints"
Pros: "The crew tried their best. The seats were average. The food ok."
Cons: "The entertainment is non-existent. Wifi wasn't even enabled. Four to five hours without ANY entertainment is totally unacceptable especially with teens and kids!!"

Pros: "Staff, Ease of boarding"
Cons: "Bring back in flight meals, please"
Pros: "The boarding was very organised and the crew very friendly. The snacks that they offer is great too"

Pros: "The food"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "Bad"
Cons: "West Jet gave me a "fake" ticket delta would not let me board missed the flight I had to wake up at 3am to catch. This is after I finally made it to my hotel last night at 11:30 pm. This is completely unacceptable. NEVER AGAIN IN MY LIFE WILL I EVER FLY WITH THIS COMPANY!!!!"
Pros: "Once again, the people were friendly, but I did not really experience much since I went to sleep as soon as the plane took off. I did, however notice that the seats reclined a little more than normal (which was amazing for me). I had a comfortable flight and caught a great nap."
Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful, the flight was smooth."
Cons: "I was unable to check in online without a delta confirmation number and I had booked through west jet. The flight was delayed 40 min so I arrived later and I was removed from the flight. I got through security and customs with plenty of time and managed to get back on the flight. It was all around just annoying."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great! Super friendly and helpful with everything!"
Cons: "I'd love slightly larger snack portions."
Pros: "Staffing was great!"
Cons: "The fact is that it is illegal to pack Sardines at compact as you are packing us on your aluminum cans."
Pros: "The flight being on time, friendly staff, clean aircraft.i"
Cons: "It was a morning flight from Toronto to Omaha via Minneapolis and unfortunately coffee wasn't served. Or maybe it got over."

All 4 Copa flights were excellent, but on all 4, the food was seriously bad (and I normally like airline food!)

Pros: "Everything ok, nothing that I say wow"
Cons: "The crew didn't go an extra mile for me. I forgot my kindle in the first plane. When boarding the connection flight an hour later, I told a crew so she would contact the other plane crew to locate it, but she told me to deal with it when we land. At landing the kindle was nowhere to be found."
Pros: "It was just fine"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, food was poor."
Pros: "I liked that everything was smooth and everyone was helpful"
Cons: "The attention of the staff could have been better, never the less, they were an amazing crew."

Pros: "Food, deinks and staff attention"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Very satisfying"
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "No Vegetarian food option."
Cons: "Ok"
Pros: "Flight attendant took care of everyone with a smile"
Cons: "Only entertainment is from overhead screens. This is not because copa doesn’t offer these services it’s just an older plane that was used."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Flight attendants wonderful. Very accommodating no language barrier"
Cons: "Great experience"
Pros: "People are very friendly"
Cons: "The food is not very good at all, especially for breakfast and snacks. Also, the seats and entertainment are on the older side, therefore not very comfortable (but not uncomfortable) and not easy to watch/enjoy."
Pros: "Copa offers the best value for a flight to Guayaquil, but there is limited options. Decent price for the shortest flight duration. Each seat has tv with entertainment"
Cons: "Slowest airline in history to get bags off the plane and into baggage claim. I regularly wait 30mins for my bag even after the time to get off the plane and go through customs. Seats suck in ecomomy"
Cons: "They canceled it."
Pros: "The food was great!"
Cons: "It had one movie and one show for the whole plane."
Pros: "the flight was on time"
Cons: "the food is the worst I have tried on a flight in my live"
Pros: "Nothing special."
Cons: "The plane was FREEZING. I was so cold and there were no available blankets. I've asked the flight attendant to raise the temperature and she said she'll do it but she didn't. I was still cold an hour after we landed and I left the plane."
Pros: "For the most part a punctual, comfortable flight, the crew did their job well. No entertainment, small snack etc."
Cons: "They broke off one of the 4 wheels of my checked-in bag rendering it useless. I approached the luggage complaint section of Copa Airlines and they said they only fix or replace bags when they make an actual hole in the fabric, which would basically require using a sharp knife or a chainsaw. Broken wheels (mine was completely gone), handles etc don't count, in other words, they can throw around your bags like they mean nothing to them because their policy protects them, not you. I'm pretty sure Copa isn't the only airline doing this but it needs to be said regardless, it's really not fair the way they treat / abuse customers' belongings without making themselves responsible for hardly any of it."
Pros: "Again the crew was amazingly polite."
Cons: "I had to sit next to a very overweight person and it was super uncomfortable."
Cons: "My pc was reseted twice and didn’t work properly. Copa employee didn’t aske me, he just told me only rice with meat. We don’t have more pasta!!! Really bad trip overall"
Pros: "Overall good safe trip"
Cons: "Long trip"
Pros: "I la la love travelling with Copa! I book with them whenever possible!"
Cons: "Nothing really. My back was tired from sitting 5 hours but I don't put the blame on Copa for that! 5 hours of sitting does that to a person."
Pros: "TODO, el cumplimiento, su puntualidad, el servicio, excelente"
Cons: "Liked everything!"
Pros: "- friendly service - complimentary headphones - wine/beer/liquor in economy seat - decent meals served with a smile - airline that doesn't nickel and dime you - attractive male flight attendants - EXCELLENT English"
Cons: "- Panama City's staff. Wasn't sure if it's everything related to that airport, but that crew was horrible. Not friendly and highly disorganized, they left a very sour taste in my mouth after my amazing experience with COPA thus far. They felt like a completely different airline!"
Pros: "Food was okay and flight was comfortable enough to sleep through."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and we sat on the tarmac for ages."
Cons: "The movies were boring"
Pros: "Excellente customer service"
Pros: "They give you actual substantial food!"

Pros: "Great experience!! Departed on time. Everybody was very professional. will only flight Copa from now on."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Boarding was fast, once I got through the security check inside the other security check, that was strange."
Cons: "Uncomfortable! Small seats. Boarding was fast, once I got through the security check inside the other security check, that was inconvenient. No vegetarian option, why is the default 2 different kinds of meat? One default should be cheese ravioli or something wonderful."
Pros: "Easy and fast connections. Flight on time.great"
Cons: "Yes"
Pros: "The empanada was good."
Cons: "Boarding felt unorganized"
Pros: "People qhere relatively nice"

Nothing

Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Entretenimento"
Cons: "Boarding was very confusing. The waiting area was filled with people milling around, trying to find their line."
Pros: "The crew were good."
Cons: "I wanted to change the returning day, but the charge was too much. More consideration for the client."
Cons: "Everything!"
Cons: "Good airline, will fly them again"
Pros: "The plane was new."
Cons: "Smallest seats and shortest leg room I’ve experienced in a long time! They even charge for a cup of coffee, and anything else, other than water! I didn’t try to use the bathroom, but they probably charge for that, too!"
Pros: "On my way back I asked for water as the cabin was hot .. and I was told to go back to my seat and buckle up."
Cons: "That they would have turned down the temperature and immediately provided water."
Cons: "They tried to charge more Money all the time. During the web check in, they give you the row where the sits are not able to decline. When you try to chance it, they pretend to charge extra fee"
Cons: "They changed our boarding gate three times"
Pros: "For an hour flight food or entertainment is not needed."
Cons: "Baggage allowance."
Cons: "Nothing. All excelent"
Cons: "Venden asientos pero sus sistema de la aplicación es pésimo no me dejaba cargar el pago. Para el embarque de miami a lima no había buen orden"
Pros: "Crew very nice chicks"
Cons: "Is like flying in the floor, very uncomfortable"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "No transfer ability between domestic connections, even on same airline."
Cons: "offering some free snacks and soda (3 hour flight, other than water, everything else is charged). An online entertainment system that actually works."
Pros: "The entertainment options were good, my device connected immediately, and the movie started right away (while the boarding process was being completed)."
Cons: "More vegetarian options in the menu."
Cons: "Disaster started at noon of the day of flight. Got notification flight delayed by 2 hours. That means I miss my coonection. Options for changes meant getting to destination 24 hours a later or with extra stop. I managed to buy a much better direct flight same day from different airline. And cheaper. I was so lucky. Getting refund for this disaster itinerary. But it worked out in the end."
Pros: "I liked that there was plenty of friendly, professional help along the way."
Cons: "No wifi service"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Pros: "I liked the presentation, the effort that LATAM puts forward in general. They have great uniforms that reminds me of old airlines, in a good way."
Cons: "The services is good, but they do not do it with a smile on their face. I asked for a cup of water and both times it took them about 10 minutes to get me that cup. The crew always seems to be bothered to serve the customer. There is also a big difference between services going straight to Santiago on the 787 and to Peru on the 767. I understand the plan (767) is older and that does not bother me. What bothers me is the disparity in service between the two. I received great service the first time I traveled on LATAM, ever since then they have disappointed. I do not understand what is going on with them."
Cons: "Aeronave muito velha, parecia que ia desmontar no ar."
Pros: "Courteous, gracious service; efficient and comfortable flight. Thank you!"
Pros: "LA844 was cancelled the day before but luckily our day went off without a hitch. LA842 was delayed several hours to create LA1144, which was effectively the cancelled flight from the day before. Airport wasn't as chaotic as I might have expected. No issues at all with this flight."
Cons: "I'm still weary of LATAM after they left us in Lima for 15 hours after 2 cancelled flights. No issues this flight though (at least for us... poor sobs on the cancelled flight the day before were delayed about 15 hours themselves)."
Pros: "Good food and drinks"
Cons: "Leg room was cramped"
Pros: "Pretty much everything other than the fact we had to return to Santiago two hours into the flight for mechanical issues. On the upside, they had a plane and crew ready to go when we returned to Santiago"
Cons: "The turn around resulting Ina five hour delay"
Pros: "Great service from start to finish"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everything was ok except the food. read the other side and do something about it."
Cons: "the food was horrible and cold and with a bad taste. the food must be hot. change it. Copa airline is better"
Pros: "Great entertainment choices, the best airline food I've ever had, attentive service, lots of amenities, new and modern plane"
Cons: "They were unable to check my bag through my final destination thus I had to clear customs, secure my checked luggage, and recheck. If the agents had responded to my situation and taken charge, I would have made my connection."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The flight itself was great. No problems with with the actual process of boarding or landing. The flight was even ahead of schedule. The problem was with the transfer."
Cons: "Normally, international-domestic transfers are pretty difficult to coordinate. This particular one (Bogota>Miami, Miami>San Francisco) seemed particularly so. On top of being just enough time to wait for our bags, drop them off with the next airline, walk across the airport, enter security (which went exceedingly slowly), we had just enough time to get to the gate before boarding. This is why I gave a lower rating."
Pros: "It was not physically uncomfortable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, moved, and when it finally took off it was re routed back to São Paulo with almost zero communication. We were herded around with attendants who had no idea why our flight was canceled mid air and we had to fend for ourselves for rebooking."
Pros: "El personal abordo fantastico El sistema de entreteimiento muy bueno La comida buena"
Cons: "El espacio entre asientos....terrible, una verdadera lata de sardinas."
Pros: "A good amount of room, really enjoyed that you could check in two 23kg bags free. It helped a lot with the carry on baggage issue (lack of space, too many people wanting to put their too large bags in the overhead bins). Good entertainment selection, they provide headphones which is nice. Comfy blankets. The crew was attentive and patient."
Cons: "Started boarding late but the captain got us to our destination early even in spite of late boarding."
Pros: "The inflight meal was delicious. I was not expecting so many choices."
Cons: "Mechanical problems go start. And the crew in Orlando did not keep passengers up to date."
Pros: "I LOVE that LATAM does not book its flights solid: I love that they leave some empty seats and breathing room-- it makes all the difference in the world. I love that the bathrooms have full length mirrors, hand towelettes, and are well maintained. Most of all, I love how compassionate,patient, and accomodating the flight attendants are."
Cons: "I would have liked for there to be more vegetarian choices-- healthier foods, more veggies, more fruits, rice, less meat. It would be nice to have real milk or cream instead of powder for the coffee; and honey instead of sugar."
Pros: "Enjoyed my first trip on LATAM."
Pros: "very nice crew, good food and drink on board"
Cons: "There is no VIP lounge in Lima anymore. It is unbelievable that Latam, maybe the biggest operator in that hub, doesn't have a lounge. The layover stunk!"
Pros: "The fact I never have to fly this airline again after today"
Cons: "Without a doubt worst flight experience I've ever had. I'm still in Miami airport after the flight was delayed 14hrs. This is the riot cene from the gate last night https://twitter.com/scrollinondubs/status/851640677595271168 airline never apologized nor explained situation. Sent cops to the gate instead to control the angry mob. Awful awful experience. Will never fly again"
Pros: "The crews were pleasant"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 5.5 hours first and another 40 minutes after the boarding due to mechanical problems. Instead of arriving at 10 pm we ended landing at 4 am. We were so exhausted and basically wasted the hotel we booked for the night."
Pros: "Maybe, we'll have to see..."
Cons: "KAYAK sent me this email as i sit in a hotel provided by the airline in Lima. I will submit a complaint with KAYAK, for I believe I deserve compensation, especially when this email is sent to me impersonally before a solution to the problem has even been carried out."
Pros: "The plane was new, exceptionally clean & nice. The crew were very professional & friendly. They offered my husband & I exit row seats for no additional fee after seeing how uncomfortable his 6'3" frame was in the regular seats. The snack and beverage service was above average for a 3 hour flight."
Cons: "The wifi service was not the best and although the plane was new there was not much leg room at all and the seats were not the most comfortable, but for a 3 hour flight it wasn't too bad."
Pros: "Glad to have the pillow and blanket. Plane was clean and new. Really appreciate the luggage bins now allow standing up in the middle seat."
Cons: "Food was not as good as other LAN flights I've been on. No fruit in the fruit high season."
Cons: "The agents are NOT CONSISTENT in knowledge or charging baggage fees."
Pros: "Super-friendly staff. Thanks!"
Cons: "Crying baby next to me! (not the airlines fault though haha!)"
Pros: "Everything!"
Cons: "Wish I used y'all for my other flights"
Pros: "Meal"
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "Excellent legroom, unlike flight out with American Airlines. I was just unlucky in choice of seat"
Pros: "Given that this flight, like just about every other BA9 flight for the past week, was a delayed departure, this flight delayed 3 hours, it is difficult to say that this was a good flight. The flight was full, and some business class passengers moved to economy class, with some economy passengers being removed from the flight to free up essential "rest areas" for the crew."
Cons: "Whilst I understand that the planes make no money sitting on the tarmac, maybe the schedule needs tweaking to permit a little more time for maintenance?"
Pros: "Sarah the Cabin Manager was amazing."
Cons: "The business seats are horrible"
Pros: "Fast check in. Boarding orderly."
Cons: "AC on the airplane. It was extremely hot. We have to use the magazine to fan ourselves...."
Cons: "Need some more and better inflight movies"
Pros: "Good food and great crew!"
Cons: "Being 6'2" is the worst when traveling economic."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Our trip to Vienna from London was less appealing than the one from Montreal to London. No food, no entertainment and seat space was cramped which reminded me of my Air Transat experiences."
Pros: "Food was good , very comfortable seats and the time we departed to the time we arrive I will rate it 10 out of ten I felt as if I was on a 2 hours flight . It’s was just one of those wonderful BA flight I can’t forget"
Cons: "It’s was just the hassle to get from Terminal 5 to Terminal 3 with luggage but made it all in all"
Pros: "We were kept informed"
Cons: "I felt stressed due to an ill passenger holding up the plane. Plane returned to gate from runway. High potential of missing connecting flight. Landed on tarmac at Heathrow. Waited for bus. Took to faraway terminal. No info monitors so stood in long queue to find out in wrong terminal."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Still at lhr waiting for a 20:55 flight to Athens then a 5am flight to Mykonos. Missed a night of our trip."
Pros: "On time, great entertainment, friendly crew, good food, complementary ice cream:)"
Cons: "Absolutely no leg room and I am regular woman passenger. It was really uncomfortable for the 2 tall young men to my left and right."
Pros: "Great movies that were free!"
Cons: "The structure under the seats were set up super odd, so that my leg space was cut in half by a bar making it difficult to store my bag."
Pros: "Flight left on time, plane was clean, entertainment options were good and flight attendants were cordial."
Cons: "Food was marginal- avoid the chicken curry."
Pros: "The plane didnt crash. I liked that."
Cons: "It was Delayed and no one was notified. I was rushing through the endless mess that is London Heathrow only to find a delayed flight - which worked out for me. I just wish I had known. The flight itself was more than 2 hours and not even a complimentary soda? You have to pay for a coke? I've taken 45 minute flights to vegas that offered complimentary drinks and snacks. Pretty odd."
Pros: "Friendly staff. The food was Ok. The flight was on time."
Cons: "My onboard entertainment system's headphone didnt work. I Was told there is nothing they can do about it, which is fair enough, but i dont think it was fair on me. People kept bumping into my shoulder but i guess there isn't much that can be done about it."
Cons: "increasingly reducing space. person sitting next to me overweight and made it uncomfortable for me during the entire trip."
Cons: "air condition from above and from everywhere, it was too cold for me."
Pros: "On time and staff"
Cons: "Too little space for seating!"
Pros: "The crew were super helpful and attentive."
Cons: "Food was not the best, the leg room was ridiculously small and the entertainment system had some issues, but all in was a nice trip"
Pros: "Hospitality"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "Flight was not to crowded"
Cons: "Seat are smaller than usual"
Cons: "Terrible, horrible, humiliating, scammy experience at check-in. Will not be flying British Airways again."
Cons: "Flight was changed and I had to wait 8 hours for the connection."
Pros: "Because we missed our connecting, British Airways did provide us with food and hotel."
Cons: "We missed our connecting flight because somebody checked in and checked bag for our incoming flight, but did not get on the plane. It delayed us an hour. The problem was when we got to Heathrow 45 minutes before flight left, but they had already bumped us from the flight. We could’ve easily made the flight, but they blamed it on the computers, and we had to get on a flight the next day. I think we need to quit relying so much on computers, and use our actual brains!"
Pros: "Food was actually quite good"
Cons: "Issues with online purchase of extra baggage"
Pros: "Liked the big 380 airbus. The food and entertainment was great on the long distance flight. The Airbus seats are more comfortable than others."
Cons: "2 hour delay because they said they didn't have the equipment to back the plane out of the maintenance hanger. Really? - at one of the big airports of Europe, they didn't have a tug vehicle."
Cons: "The flight left 2 hours late. The seats were cramped."
Pros: "The crew The nice and friendly staff at the airport"
Cons: "Assigning one luggage per traveller"
Cons: "got to the check-i counter and didn;t realize my ticket didn't include a checked bag. Was charged 65 pounds.---a bit high in my opinion. The disclosure was not at all prominent. Was surprised and disappointed at the price. Also, was never served water during the overnight flight. Am accustomed to flight attendants coming through the cabin a couple of times with water."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Early request of seat not taken in consideration. One week In advance request"
Pros: "comfort of seats, staff"
Cons: "I tried watching movies. However, the movie would start fast forwarding itself and skipping to the end without anyone or anything touching the screen or armrest. It happened multiple times and the crew reset my monitor twice before it started working properly. Towards the very end of my flight it started happening again. Very frustrating for such a long flight."
Pros: "Aside from the typically narrow seats, the service included all the hallmarks of higher-tier service, such as hot towels, cloth napkins, a good meal, and so on. The crew was attentive, as well."
Cons: "The food , it will be great to have a salad option ."
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: "Not much"
Cons: "The boarding crew from Edinburgh did not allow me to bring my carry on despite it being very light and within size restriction. They said this was because the plane was already full with others' luggage and could not handle my bag for safety. Had to shove my things in a Tesco carrier bag and in my daughters small backpack on wheels. The backpack broke later as it was not made to carry more than a few books. And to top it off, the suitcase I was made to check never made it on my connecting flight to Chicago. I am still waiting for it to be delivered 36 hours later. This suitcase is virtually empty. Well, it's actually carrying a pair of sunglasses and my phone charger. totally inconvenienced and the crew saved the plane from being dangerously overloaded by an empty suitcase. Absolute nonsense."
Pros: "Relatively on-time give IT issue from prior day."
Cons: "Crew not as friendly. Kept getting bumped awake by flight attendant with rather wide hips and no apologies. Boarding process a mess. I had Ruby status but couldn't board with other having Ruby status because I was in economy?? Announcements at gate were poor, hard to hear and again, disorganized. We were slightly delayed."
Cons: "For some reason British Airways has a bug in its computers and does not allow me to check in on line. This is not the first time."
Cons: "Great flight"
Pros: "The flight attendants on this flight where the best I've ever had!"
Pros: "Food good and very attentive and friendly Cabin crew Amanda made the flight a pleasure."
Pros: "I was moved from this flight to one seven hours earlier with only the explanation that it was for "technical reasons." But the flight wasn't canceled, so I don't understand at all."
Cons: "I was only made aware of the change via email on Thursday, but the change was appearing in my aer lingus app on Tuesday. Why the delay in telling me?"
Pros: "The food was good, but BA charged for even a soda."
Cons: "Paying for even a basic beverage. Really?"
Pros: "New plane, nice interiors of the plane"
Cons: "Delays at LHR"
Pros: "Many things including the seat space and less crowded flight"
Cons: "Cost. One way close to 2000 USD"
Cons: "Delayed twice, switched gates, AND forced to gate check my carry on "because the plane was small" and supposedly they were having everyone check their bags. Except that didn't turn out to be true. Frustrating although baggage claim had bags waiting when we got through customs."
Pros: "The flight itself went smoothly despite some windy conditions, and we were transported in one piece, without incident, from LHR to IAD. The crew members were pleasant in conversation and reasonable in frequency of food service. Once, when I pressed the attendant button, one of them came quickly to ask me what the problem was, and that kind of responsiveness is always a plus, in my opinion. The seats reclined a reasonable amount, not the mere 2-5 cm one sometimes experiences lately."
Cons: "The aircraft was aging at least a bit, and it was clear because my seat almost would not return to the upright position and stay there. Several times I tried to return it to upright as the end of the flight neared, and it would easily move but would return to reclined once I leaned back. It was as if I had been the whole time keeping my finger on the button that makes the seat movable. After I'd about given up, the seat finally stayed upright even when I put my weight back on it. My flight attendant misunderstood my drink request, but I let it go because the result was close to what I had asked for. It could have been that there was too much background noise - not sure."
Pros: "Great food."
Cons: "Not much space for a long flight."
Pros: "I landed in San Diego"
Cons: "The seat was so small if I dropped something there was no way I could pick it up off the floor. I had to hold my arms in front of me because with an adult beside me there was no way both our arms could rest at the same time. I think if seating in coach gets any smaller you'll have to give disclaimers that only children should consider coach seats as suitable."
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."
