Very poor snack and drink option
Our flight was canceled and had to stand in line for 3 hours and 11 minutes to get on a flight to Florence Italy for the same day. They couldn’t get us to Genoa for 36 hours and had to go through Rome no direct flight. We will be contacting customer service for compensation for a hotel stay in Florence and train tickets to reach our destination Genoa Italy.
Pros: "Overall a nice and good flight"
Cons: "Just a detail, my “head holder” (not too sure how it is called) would not hold in position. Also, staff was a bit slow to come after being called, I had to go and ask for water by myself at some point since no one was coming after 15minites of waiting..."
Pros: "Food was great, movie selection too. Everything was great except for I couldn’t really get comfortable to sleep"
Cons: "Not sure how to make the seats more comfortable. I have some back issues though. However, some of my travel companions slept right through the flight."
Pros: "Very friendly and responsive crew. Announcements from the Capitan and chief of flight attendants are very informative and comforting. Seat positions: very good leg room (even in economy)!"
Cons: "Newer airplane, as 747s are kind of outdated now, especially for long distance flights. But overall had good experience with KLM"
Pros: "Impressive service... amazing crew, very friendly and professional"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Staff: from check in to landing, they could at least smile. Baggage claim was a nightmare, 6 Schengen flights in the same belt."
Pros: "Pleasant crew. Appropriate and efficiently served snack."
Cons: "Boarding and disembarkation were slow."
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Ran out of business class meal. Substituted a Econ class."
Pros: "Planes were on time and connections made."
Cons: "One bag delayed as not put on flight and food could be better."
Cons: "Seats in economy section are very close together . There is not enough room for knees...especially for such a long trip."
Pros: "Comfortable seat, great crew."
Cons: "Flight delayed, no USB port and no entertainment"
Cons: "Late departure. Rush to connect."
Cons: "We were allowed to choose our seats from SFO to Amsterdam but not for the return flight. I like to be able to choise my seats when I book the flight. Choosing seats 24 hours before is not convenient when traveling for the return trip."
Pros: "Crew was great and professional."
Cons: "Entertainment controls were outdated and confusing to operate. There were no charging ports."
Cons: "The website I booked on and the Delta phone line on the printed ticket said that I had baggage when it turns out that I did not according to the check in staff and they made me pay."
Pros: "The flight was smooth, the service was friendly, and the food with plentiful."
Cons: "Too much activity in the cabin during the flight."
Pros: "Crew's hospitality, good music, good destination material, terminal info, good system overall"
Cons: "Less legroom, storage space, bad food, few movie options."
Pros: "They considered my reguest of vegiterian food."
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Pros: "The flight started with a visit in the recently renovated KLM crown lounge in Amsterdam airport. I liked the various seating options and of course the upstairs bar. The service on board was attentive and efficient, the food options I really liked (especially the Chinese dish) but also the little touches like the nuts & gouda cheese which were served in small porcelain bowls. The seat itself was very comfortable when sitting and the structure gives a lot of privacy. However for couples or friends travelling it's a bit cumbersome to have a conversation even when sitting in seats next to each other. Overall my expectations were fulfilled."
Cons: "This seat is not ideal for sleeping for taller persons (I'm 185cm tall) as the space to put the feet is very narrow and it's uncomfortable when lying on the back (as one cannot put them in the natural resting position). Cabin temperature could have been a bit lower for my taste. Crew needs better training with regards to transfer procedure in Chengdu."
Pros: "The constant smile conferred by flight attendants through the entire flight."
Cons: "The boarding was a bit disorderly. Lanes for zones 3 and 4 were not clearly indicated."
Cons: "Having to change my seat to accommodate a rude belligerent passenger, who had taken my seat, refused to move until spoken to by steward. She then made my flight a nightmare, until I let her sit in my aisle seat. Even then she was not satisfied, she abused me the whole flight damaged the screen so I could not use it until the steward fixed it. Demanded that I except any and all alcohol to give to her to drink. When I am tea total she then continued to abuse me. I asked the steward to move me he just shrugged his shoulders and said there was nowhere else. This is definitely my the worst flight I have experienced."
Pros: "Was happy to pay extra 45.5 pounds for laugages which was hidden"
Cons: "Not happy to pay extra money for my case"
Pros: "Staff very pleasant"
Cons: "Evening snack was not the greatest breakfast was pretty food"
Cons: "Services was pretty weird .. Perse or crew Leader was ok But the assistent Young one was Really bad.. aptitud and not friendly at all."
Pros: "Good flight, very attentive crew."
Pros: "crew were absolutely delightful, full of smiles and doing everything to make you comfortable. seats were fine enough and got some work done and a bit of sleep. first lunch was fresh and tasty, but the second, a burger, was edible, but not much more."
Cons: "tv screens are dated so movies are not as crisp as you find in newer planes. you need a 2 prong audio adapter to use your own headphones."
Pros: "Good Experience"
Cons: "Nothing much"
Pros: "Premium economy service was good."
Cons: "Inexplicably, our preassigned seats were changed at checkin and we were put in bulkhead. This particular Boeing aircraft is pretty poorly designed. Especially the bulkhead in premium economy."
Cons: "I can't take the flight because i'm not Chilean and I don't have a reembolse or other flight ,... nothing . Finally I take other flight with other company"
Pros: "Lovely staff, good food, great movies."
Pros: "Flight crew; legroom even in cheap seats."
Cons: "Exceptionally unhelpful customer service when asking about extra kilos/bags. Just quoted the online info back at us. We simply wanted to know how much would be charged if the bag was 1-2kgs overweight. We could not get a straight answer, just quoted the unclear company policy. Extremely frustrating and annoying. KLM offer a superior flight experience - it is a shame their terrestrial customer servic does not match it!"
Pros: "I personally do not appreciate the food on this leg of the journey Food Ams to Dxb is GOOD!!"
Cons: "The snack & “ solid eggs” in breakfast. Fresh fruit was good."
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Pros: "Staff both at the airport and in the plane were professional and welcoming. Depsite short distance sandwich and drink were offered."
Cons: "Nothing to be honest . All positive."
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!?"
Cons: "Service from airline host Poorly maintained plane Bad food Old entertainment"
Pros: "Cabin crew very pleasant"
Cons: "Lost our bags, little sympathy from staff"
Cons: "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. Also, really tired of the fake business class on these flights..."
Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "Sears we're toooo small"
Pros: "Eveything is well arranged"
Cons: "Flight delayed by one hour which meant I missed by train at Southampton by 10 minutes and subsequent bus connect home. Next bus would have been 2 hours later so 45 minute walk home from train station. Didn't bother with food offering, put off by that supplied from Hannover to Schiphol."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy!"
Pros: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes initially then a further 20 making it an hour late. Sitting at the gate there was then suddenly a last call to board the flight and a mad rush for everyone to get on. I appreciate that delays happen but the lack of communication ragardinh altered boarding times didn't make the situation any easier"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Loads of leg room"
Cons: "Loved everything"
Pros: "Wide selection of entertainment, food was good."
Cons: "Boarding unorganized, but that may have been more of a passenger issue then KLM"
I liked the plane seating and leg room, but I didn't like the 1 hour delay in take off.
It was the worst flight of my life. My headset didn't work, charger didn't work, seats were small and my pillow is bloodstained. Completely unacceptable! I paid for preferred seating and I was the last one on the flight.
The flights was over 4 hours late leaving Athens. The communication from Aer Lingus was poor, and they seemed to think leaving 4 hours late was par for the course.
Cons: "Lost a piece of luggage between Dublin and Edinburgh"
Pros: "The crew was amazing!"
Cons: "I can't think of a thing"
Pros: "Lunch was tasty. Crew was pleasant. Boarding was easy. Entertainment offered was excellent with a large range of things to watch/listen to. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Blankets were not offered to passengers, I was disappointed by this."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Forced to board a bus and sit in an empty terminal. Paid for priority boarding but wasn't called for it. Pretty disorganized. Good flight but gate crew needs work."
Cons: "They lost all my luggage"
Cons: "Should have included meals on flights that are 8hrs."
Pros: "No food no entertainment"
Pros: "All good, excellent crew."
Cons: "After awhile Seats were a little uncomfortable."

Cons: "Pay for the food. LOL."
Pros: "Average flight to get you where you want to go. air hostess was helpful."
Cons: "Forgot my luggage in Toronto. This is the second time with aer Lingus in the past 8 month. Had to pay for my seat and baggage on top of ticket price, was unaware."
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "The confort of thé seats. Way too tight for a 6 hour flight."
Pros: "Quick flight, great landing"
Cons: "Can believe they charge you for water."
Pros: "I got from point a to point b just fine"
Cons: "It was very cold on the flight, the boarding process could be more organized, nothing complementary."
Pros: "Great selection of entertainment."
Cons: "No complimentary free alcoholic drink with your meal on the Aer Lingus Flight."
Cons: "I was fine with a 5 hour delay I was fine with my bags not being on the same flight as me I am not fine with finally receiving my bags 24 hours later soaking wet. Everything it dripping. I still have nothing to change into now and there was no compensation offered whatsoever. Never flying with this airline again."
Pros: "Never got on as we were 5 minutes late at the bag drop. Attendant telephoned her line manager 40 minutes before take off and refused to take our luggage. She did manage to book us on flights for the following day at a cost of £290. Not a good experience!"
Cons: "Never made the plane."
Cons: "Missed the flight."
Cons: "Being charged $100 each way for checked baggage, no where on my itenerary did it mention that"
Pros: "I flew overnight from Toronto, Canada to Dublin and had a relatively pleasant experience. The food and drink trolleys came by quite quickly and frequently, and the food exceeded my expectations. The crew was friendly, for the most part. Boarding certainly could've been smoother... But overall, I'd fly Aer Lingus again for an overseas trip."
Pros: "Great seats plenty of leg room"
Cons: "The food... Yikes"
Pros: "The charm and warmth of the Aer Lingus hostesses make them the best in the world !"
Cons: "Arriving at JFK and there was no gate for us . We drove around for 3 hours before we could disembark. Why is JFK such a mess ?"
Pros: "The plane was night. The flight was exceptionally smooth. The crew was very pleasant."
Cons: "they charged me 100 dollars to check a bag - nothing at all about this during my purchase. i am so mad at these guys."
Cons: "Didn't take Dublin to LA."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and accommodating to me, my wife, our 3-year-old and 1-year-old for both legs. The planes were in good shape and everything was on time. The balthrooms were clean and felt spacious. I didn't eat the dinner because we ate a large dinner before the long flight. I did tasted it and it was good. The selections of movies was also very good."
Cons: "Thw system they use for in flight entertainment was a little glitchy."
Pros: "The cabin crew was friendly"
Cons: "The entertainment selections are extremely limited and poor. Food is mediocre and not even comparable to other international Airlines business class standards"
Pros: "Fast. Not too much time wasted between connection. Dublin = small airport, it's really comfortable..."
Cons: "Not enough room for my legs Too close to the "babies rows" = difficult to sleep. It's a pity to pay now to change a seat in the same category"
Pros: "the timeliness of the airline in leaving and arriving at the ports, providing meals for the passengers,"
Cons: "breakfast was not given to some of us as the air hostesses said that they ran out of food"
Pros: "Fast and efficient crew"
Cons: "A going-through-the-paces flight and incredibly expensive beer and wine."
Pros: "The automated check in and baggage tagging using the kiosk was fantastic! Very professional flight attendants. Overall very comfortable. Great options for entertainment - and we didn't have to "pay as you go." Clearly covered in price of the flight. Same with luggage - love not having to pay separate bag charge. Much preferred over the "nickel-and-dime-you-to-death" approach of U.S. airlines!"
Cons: "90 minutes stranded on the tarmac with no explanation. Not the way you start a trip. While the fact of being stranded was out of the control of Aer Lingus, communication was not."
Pros: "clearing customs in Dublin rather than US was nice. Since we chose the flight based on price, It's reasonable to expect some corner cutting."
Cons: "Aer Lingus operated the flight. Haphazzard ticketing/check-in procedure would have been stressful if it wasn't clear that everyone else on the plane was there in line too. Both legs of our trip with Aer Lingus were on older planes, that had obviously flown a lot of miles. Sound on my seat console on this flight was so bad that it was unusable."
Pros: "They boarded us in a very timely, organized and quick manner. The food was delicious and the flight attendants were awesome."
Cons: "Sitting in the middle seats, the flight attendants missed us for water offers and our tv's seemed stopped having any sound. I believed they overheated. After a couple hours, they cooled down and went on again. It was a very cold flight. I was so thankful for the blanket and that I brought my own also."
Pros: "Nothing. I flew with West Jet. Their review shall be posted on their forum"
Cons: "The abrupt cancellation"
Pros: "Having meals covered by the airport hotel, and quick access by car to downtown Dublin."
Cons: "Wasn't able to get to IAD when I wanted to (on same day)."
Cons: "The plane was dirty and old, the food horrible, cramped seats, dirty and non functioning bathrooms, stressed out and inattentive staff, poor coordination of seating families together (I was told my seat was given to a woman so she could sit with her adult daughter...I wasn't asked, just told), the flight was 1.5 hour delayed, my bag was lost because the incompetent staff member in Italy didn't give me a bording pass for the Dublin to LA flight (I'm still waiting over 24 hours later to find out what's happened to my luggage). Overall, this flight was a nightmare and a huge let down after flying to Rome on British Airways. I can't say enough about how wonderful that flight was..Aer Lingus was a big disappointment and a poor substitute for BA. Very unsatisfied customer!"
Pros: "From the moment I arrived I felt very taken care of. Plenty of seating in lounge, with many of them facing runway. People were friendly and accommodating. Food was average. On aircraft, the staff was outstanding."
Cons: "3.5 hr delay due to mechanical issues. Missed connecting flight."
Cons: "------- we were very cold on the plane . ."
Pros: "Have traveled many long haul flights with various airlines in past 6 months. The Aer Lingus food was significantly better than the others. Very tasty."
Cons: "Not enough seating at gate in Dublin and the space needs updating. A complimentary beer or wine with the meals, as provided by other carriers, would be nice."
Pros: "What do you say about that loses you luggage both directions. It isn't reliable so that's it for me with aer Linus."
Pros: "The price and convenience was great, airline was well kept with minor technology issues. Restroom facilities were well kept and food was adequate (what airline food is really good?) turbulent flight but the pilot did a goood job maneuvering around."
Cons: "The headsets provided for international movies sound quality was very poor.my daughter and I found ourselves using a single prong (airline headsets require two one for each ear)headphones from our phone to listen to movies with only one in. One flight attendant was not pleasant and wound up spilling a full cup of water on my lap, followed by another hitting me with the food cart. I am a frequent traveler so for me this shouldn't sway anyone's opinion on a minor instance."
It would be nice if there was a British Airways flight that was on time and this one wasn’t although the turnaround in Vancouver was excellent for a late arriving flight.
Pros: "Brand new A321 Neo"
Cons: "Couldn't find a way to recline seat"
Pros: "Just expect the bare basics: - thin lightweight seats without adjustment - Limited legroom - no entertainment - pay for food and drinks Attentive crew."
Cons: "Boarding staff was rude Bus transport from plane to terminal"
Cons: "The cabin crew was quite stuck up and unfriendly"
Pros: "The crew was ok. They seemed really hectic between Heathrow to Rome."
Cons: "The seats were too tiny for business class. Nowhere to put anything. So close to next passenger. I would not fly business class again on BA Terrible entertainment. No interesting movies. I guess they tried to have movies only with British actors/actresses. Nothing current. That’s pretty bad for almost. 10 hours flt. He seats in business class between Heathrow to Rome were like regular seats except with the middle seat blocked off. Food was just ok."
Pros: "Free service Food and coffee"
Cons: "Free service Food and coffee"
Cons: "The food was fantastic also the crew."
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Plane changed to an A380"
Cons: "Waited over half an hour to get off at Heathrow owing to staff shortage so the air bridge took a while to happen!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by three hours; not sure how to fix that but it was annoying. For some reason the arm rests in the middle of the seats would not go fully back and I felt like the flight attendants were talking down to me. They also could have been having a bad day too with the flight. :/"
Pros: "This was a charter by BA. Airbus A320 with amazing legroom. Was slightly annoyed by them not having coffee ( to wake me up for the drive home) but I suppose I get why they weren’t serving hot beverages."
Cons: "The beverages thing above."
Cons: "I somehow made my 35 minute layover, however I can’t say the same for my luggage. Totally unacceptable."
Pros: "The crew were above friendly, calling you by name and were very accommodating."
Cons: "Plane was older, seats were grungy and the onboard entertainment was not updated, i.e: small screens with poor visibility, some screens did not even work for some passengers, limited amount of movies/entertainment for a 10 hour flight this was disappointing and seriously makes me reconsider flying British Airways ever again."
Pros: "The plan was new and smelled nice and the staff was very entertaining and nice."
Cons: "The flight didn’t have wifi"
Pros: "Helpful and friendly staff"
Cons: "Filth plane"
Pros: "service was good"
Cons: "seats are too congested"
Pros: "I was flying Business and I couldn’t tell any difference between Business and Economy except the covers on the headrest"
Cons: "No difference between Business and Economy"
Pros: "Crew very helpful"
Cons: "New booking system where you cannot select seats without paying more money is outrageous. Will fly Virgin next time. Seats did not recline Flight left three hours late. Nearly missed connection. Very stressful experience"
Cons: "So out flight from Heathrow to Frankfurt arrived late at the Heathrow airport and, reportedly in a hurry to let us take off, they chose to inconvenience us further by not loading all our luggage. They said on the plane that, if we are missing our luggage, it will come in on the next flight. I don’t understand the logic of the decision to not load our luggage to try to save us time."
Cons: "Ran out of food. Credit card machine didn't work,Crew can't take cash. Lots of shrugs and 'not our fault'. Better service from the low cost carriers. Expected better from ba."
Pros: "BA overall service was good."
Cons: "Boarding at venice was a disaster. they changed gate without annoncing it in english. I am sure they did it in Italian but not every travel speaks italian. getting on bus to airplane was not organized at all. staff let people ahead of me taking their carry on bags larger than my normal size bag but asked me to check in mine. i thought perhaps i am amoung the last and there is no room left. how ever while i was waiting they let many others take their carry on with them. i explained them that i have expensive Murrano glass in my carry on and prefer not to check in or at least provide a tag to mark it fragile. response was that we are out of tag! and i have no choioce. i was very upset theway they trreated me and told them i will file a complain and took their picture. almost by the time i was getting on bus one of crew approached me with at Fragile tag to add to my bag. after all when i received my carry on bag in LAX many of my gifts were smashed and broken."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly, the meals and entertainment were good"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Nothing I didn’t make the flight"
Cons: "Heathrow security is slower than molasses and rude. They had to check my bags and it took them over an hour. They were condescending and very unprofessional. Also extremely slow."
Pros: "arrived on time"
Cons: "Coffee/tea was not free"
Cons: "Couldn't check-in online. Website said to go to airport and talk to staff - should have said: "invalid passport, get new one!" That would have been so much more helpful. Substandard food, especially 'breakfast'"
Cons: "We had to go back to philadelphia after flying for 2.5hoyrs, landing at Bangor, waiting for the maintenance team to figure out the problem. We then had to wait for another flight for 4h before being able to go to paris.."
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "I had a flight from Atlanta to London with a connection flight to fly to Istanbul. The first flight was fine and smooth but the second was just terrible. Upon buying and resorting to British Airwaya, it wasn't mentioned anywhere that the second flight plans do not offer complimentary soft drinks or snacks for the three hour flight after a 6 hour layover. Assuming my flight was going to feed, I didn't eat a whole lot at the airport so I didn't have to spend too much money. I declined the cart the first go around and didn't seem any too interested or sure what some of the options were. I lasted as long as I could and gave in and pulled out my credit card (not accepting cash is another disappointment because my Turkish bank account was charged by pounds) but there was nothing but one choice left and it didn't sit well in my stomach."
Cons: "BA/AA seats seem to be more cramped. No room in the overhead bin, too many passengers allowed to bring huge carry-on carts + bags. Stuck sitting in the middle with my carry-on bag, handbag and winter coat, glad I didn't buy any duty-free since there would not have been any room. Food service has declined, no snacks w/drinks, only packaged chips or cookies before landing."
Pros: "Flight was pretty much empty. I had more room to relax."
Cons: "Very old and antiquated video monitors. You can hardly see the videos. Strongly suggest a better plane between London and Washington DC"
Pros: "Decent seats, space"
Cons: "Unorganized boarding system"
Pros: "The flight attendants are very helpful and accommodating. Even the food was good! Took a pic of my meal and wanted to ask for seconds!"
Cons: "Couldn't get overhead light to shut off."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and professional"
Cons: "My monitor didn’t work and I asked about it twice. Two crew members said they would look into it but it never got reset."
Cons: "Not even a free cup of tea. Reflects badly on the airline"
Pros: "The crew had to deal with a medical emergency and they were excellent!! Despite extra pressure they kept us all informed and were polite and friendly under pressure!"
Cons: "lack of seat space and could not put seat back because of medical emergency so hard to sleep. Exhausted on arrival at Heathrow! Headset did not work properly on films Did not like the boarding process !!"
Cons: "My suitcase got stuck in London, now I have to chase it..."
Pros: "Overall, the food, cabin crew, entertainment, and the air travel were excellent."
Cons: "The landing at BWI was a little scary."
Cons: "I missed my flight from Barcelona and when talking with BA customer support they were extremely unhelpful in helping me find a return flight to get home to America. In the end I was offered almost no help and had to buy a brand new flight via American. I loved my flight TO London on BA, it was fantastic but the return experience was a nightmare. Can I look into a partial refund on my ticket since I never caught the return flight?"
Cons: "Seating. Meal. Entertainment. Did not compare well to Air Canada."
Pros: "Most everything"
Cons: "Seat choice"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Too cramped and the food was mediocre."
Cons: "Was not given an aisle seat"
Pros: "I require a wheelchair for getting around the airport. When I first checked in at LHR, they claimed to have no record of my wheelchair request and my seat change, despite my very clear notations of who and when these were made. They did have a record of my paying for one suitcase. The agent at LHR promised to make these corrections so I would not have the same problem when returning to London. Furthermore, to turn this into a humiliating situation, at the gate I was informed that the jetway was broken and they would have to find some other way to get me onboard the plane. I cannot believe that British Airways has no contingency plan for a situation like mine. After many discussions between BA reps and ground crewmen they decided to bring me down in a lift at Gate 34, though my plane was at Gate 32. I was then loaded onto the freight platform of one of those food delivery trucks and driven over to my plane. The truck backed into place and again I hoisted up to the plane. However the plane door was locked and we had to bang on it for them to finally open it. To my great embarrassment I helped down the aisle to my assigned seat, looking back at the curious looks and glares from all those passengers who had no explanation for the delay and humiliating scene. Officially the flight was listed at 28 minutes late, when in reality it was 40 minutes till we taxied away from the gate My return flight from Brussels was little better because the changes that were supposed to have been entered at LHR never were and so I had to go through this whole routine again costing me over one hour in delays. Fortunately I was able to board the flight through the jetway and did not have to be hoisted up again, and delivered like freight. How would you rate these flights. I had problems with every single British Airways flight!!"
Pros: "The flight overall was fine. Equipment was good, although one passenger was stuck in a toilet for a little while - they had to take the door off to let him out - that was an interesting distraction. In-flight entertainment was good. Boarding and disembarkation was quick and easy."
Cons: "The crew. Maybe it's because I'm neither young nor pretty. When they were giving out drinks I was missed - invisible I guess. And at a later point in the flight they managed to see me and I got a brusk "do you want something?""
Pros: "Food was great All flights were on time Very clean and comfortable"
Cons: "You had cargo on the plane we were supposed to board that leaked and contaminated the plane's controls. 2 hour delay. The replacement plane was beat up, old, and quite shaky."
Pros: "Flying on the 380 very smooth"
Cons: "Gate was not available at arrival"
Cons: "The space on the seat"
