Cons: "The ground staff were rude and officious"

Pros: "Plane was super nice and new and crew was great!"
Pros: "The Munich airport presented a startling contrast to heathrow! Both the flight from London and from Munich were very nice. I was so tired that I am sure I missed a lot."
Pros: "Cabin crew was very helpful and polite"
Cons: "I’m not sure how I feel about the embarking and disembarking in the “presidential” style. (the use of the stairs outside of the planes, and the shuttle rides)."

Cons: "Online check-in did not work. When I checked in at the airport, I received only a middle seat."
Pros: "Once again, the in-flight crew was excellent. The flight was good, but no entertainment is provided."
Cons: "Another late take off, probably because the incoming connections were late. So it was good that the airline delayed the connecting flights. However, this leg of the trip was so late that I barely made it to third leg of the trip. A huge problem is that each of these international airports require that you go through the security check again. For that reason, connecting legs of trips through these airports should not be scheduled so close together. Heathrow is the worst, with security staff that, at best, don’t care that you have a close connection to make and just ignore your pleas to speed up the process, and at worst, are just plain rude."
Pros: "Only an hour and a half but perfect service and even a nice meal. Because of the delay there were a lot of questions to the crew but they managed to keep travelers calm and happy."

I will never fly again with Lufthansa Airline it use to like British Airways but definitely they have lost the customer touch."

So we were stuck in the lobby for hours until ticket agents arrived at 4 am. There was one open coffee shop however. Then we waited for security to arrive at about 4:30 am to get through and it was quite a slow shake down. One through there were no restaurants open until 5-5:30 am. The flight itself was fine. Facilities at Frankfurt were minimal with toilets offering only one stall each. While standing in the long queue a lady and her young daughter were rudely ushered out by the male custodian for cleaning, and then it could not be used for another 10-15 minutes."

Mainly because other passengers obviously don't read instructions re: weight/contents of cabin bags etc. Would be helpful if there was additional staff to deal with them away from check in desk.

Cons: "Nothing good to say about this flight. The plane was old with no entertainment. The sits where very compact and not comfortable at all. The food was a sweet bread and water. The flight attendants were rushing and will take a while if you needed anything. I felt like I was taking a bus with graffiti all over the place."

Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised they had a snack service on such a short flight. The flight attendants were very friendly"

Cons: "My boyfriend and I were required to gate check our carry-on luggage which required us to go through customs in Paris to get to our bag and re-enter security for our connecting international flight.

As the arrival was little late, all the passengers have missed their connection flights in Toronto and there was no notification or communication made on the new flight. When I went to the Air France counter in the airport, the staff has gone for the day and trying to get a hold of telephone rep took 2-3 hours and I by the time I found about my new connection, I was already late. Somehow I managed to get to the Terminal 1 and when I spoke to the lady (indian) at the Check-In counter, she has refused me to Check-In because i slipped the line up. The people in the lineup didn’t have any objection and they let me go first for Check-In as I’m already late to my flight. I wante to say something to her, but I’ve controlled my frustration. Luckily the other person in the Check-In counter offered to help me Check-In. Here is my word to the Indian lady staff “F**k You B***h” - learn some people skills."
Cons: "Had to check in our underweight small carry on because there was no space left. Left out hotel at 3.15am. A dry croissant did not satisfy three hungry children for breakfast, the coffee was terrible and the seats too close together. Not a good experience."

Cons: "no room for legs"
Pros: "the Airline"
Cons: "The Airport, Security, Boarder control."

Cons: "Food could be a bit better. White bread is unhealthy."

Cons: "Nothing to report."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable with good recline. Food was good, but not excellent."
Cons: "They forgot the snack/breakfast service for the front right section of economy then had to rush it. Overall, the service was good, but some things just seemed off. An attendant call was never answered, etc."
Pros: "The fact that the plane made it to SFO"
Cons: "Downgrade without notice or consent separating family. Paid full fare for family to travel business class together. AF without our knowledge downgraded one member, separating a mother from her 3 year old daughter. They offered no compensation, no apology, and CDG ground crew was terribly rude. All anyone said was, nothing to be done, now please Leave"
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: "Free drinks and snack!"
Pros: "I like the service of AF"

Cons: "Not enough room for legs. Small amounts of food. No entertainment."
Pros: "All female crew in the cockpit - awesome."
Cons: "Non reclining seats"
Pros: "Croissants instead of pretzels was a nice change of snack"
Cons: "Computer failure rendered the check in process a total mess. Staff seemed utterly at a loss and also totally unprepared for this very early and very full flight. Most passengers seemed to have multiple bags to check. Since this is a regular flight it was hard to understand why check in staff wandered in late when time was already tight - let alone having a system failure as well to deal with. We were 50 minutes late leaving. This resulted in many of us either missing or having extremely tight (stressful) connections at CDG Paris."
Cons: "My entertainment system did not work for the whole 8 hours. Seats were uncomfortable. The lights above the seats broken."
Pros: "The plane is roomy and bright"
Cons: "Boarding more than 15 minutes late. Departure on time, though"
Pros: "New plane in the excellent condition. Leg room in economy not bad. Crew friendly and efficient. Boarding worked well."

Pros: "Exept food everything was awesome"
Pros: "The crew were very good. In any case, I shall fly with AC again."
Cons: "Lining up to check in with bags. The customers were "sorted" but I finished up on a very long line with only one person serving; after 30 minutes, that person just wandered off, presumably for a break. We, on the queue waited for 15 minutes for a new person to return. When it was my turn to check in the process took no more tan 30 seconds whilst for others it had taken 10 minutes and more. Dreadful experience. The choice of entertaining films was limited on my flight; normally AC has a wide choice."
Pros: "I sat next to quiet and pleasant travelers. Flight left and arrived smoothly"
Cons: "Boarding was one long queue.... My row was skipped in the meal service when they had to restock and restarted in the wrong row. Attendants never responded to call light. I had to verbally call out as attendants passed by. On the third attempt one actually stopped and brought the meals. No apology given."
Cons: "Connection was two short when flight was delayed 15 minutes would have missed next flight. Had to change to different later flight ended up getting into St. John at a very difficult time to try and find our way in a new place. Flew direct to St. John."
Pros: "There were no issues on this flight. My screen worked and the flight was ok."
Pros: "No wasted time, they load you up and get you where you want to be."

Pros: "This was a boring flight which is a good thing, no drama, no mechanical problems, no weather problems. More leg room than an overseas flight."
Cons: "There was some confusion during boarding."
Pros: "Seats were nice to recline and the in flight tv is much nicer than tablets etc. The in flight safety video is good and quick easy"
Cons: "Seriously? No free snacks? It's ridiculous that you want us to purchase snacks. Something small should be complimentary. Staff was in ok moods but a little edgy. The air was too cold."
Cons: "service desk unable to reroute me on a different flight even though there are seats"
Pros: "Boarding was very well-organised ands clearly explained."
Cons: "USB socket broken and non-functioning. Plastic fork snapped and shed tines. A truly ghastly movie selection."
Pros: "Helpful and considerate staff when my friend was sick"
Cons: "The delays to leaving the airplane port."
Cons: "Toronto international airport was very crowded. too many people , not enough facilities. You have to line up to do anything, even buy a bottle water."
Pros: "Flew to and from LHR with Air Canada after flying Air Transat for years. Both flights were professionally managed with the crew in constant availability. Not over the top cheerful, but ready to attend to requests calmly and with attention.beverages etc. were readily available."
Cons: "Low-quality food and small portions for a 9 hr flight."
Pros: "Nothing other than the staff is nice."
Cons: "Nothing stands out about this flight."

Cons: "Nothing stands out"

Pros: "Very professional but also pleasant. Clean, good food."
Pros: "I really liked how the crew on our leg to Heathrow made sure we were comfortable and asked often if we wanted more drinks (water, etc). We had a delay in landing due to weather but we were able to make our connection because they called ahead to customs and we were able to go to the front of the line. That's service!"
Cons: "Bathrooms got kinda dirty about halfway through the long flight from Toronto to Heathrow."
Pros: "Great fast flight"
Cons: "flight was cancelled and I was offered a flight through Montreal with Long connections so I cancelled and flew the next day again through Montreal but with better connections"
Cons: "Seats are always too close to the ones in front , crushing knees."
Cons: "Entertainment system is outdated and not functional"
Cons: "From Toronto to London the price they charge is about the same as I pay from Toronto to Dubai using emirate or ettihad which is twice the distance. Toronto to London is a busy route so why charge such a high fare? Food. Be prepared for food that comes straight out of a cafeteria's frozen items. Entertainment. Slightly better than Turkish airline's which isn't an achievement by any means. Old aircrafts which don't have air vents. They really don't offer anything to you except charge you a lot for the busiest routes in the world. Try other airlines."
Pros: "Leg room was better than most airlines as was the food and entertainment choices."
Cons: "Flight was 1 hour late departing."
Pros: "The fact that I could charge my i phone..."

Cons: "I was very unhappy at check in area, long queue to check in then at the baggage area I was told by a staff member to put the baggage onto the scales then lift it onto the conveyer belt I am a 74 year old senior and I had great difficulty doing this and I was very annoyed as the staff member watched me struggle but did not offer to help. A kind passanger assisted me. This was even more annoying as I had to pay $25:00 + tax for my case."
Cons: "I was NEVER TOLD I would need a transit visa to fly through Canada. I was denied boarding in Entebbe by British Air and had to rebook and pay for another flight on a different airline that didn't fly through Canada. Who has another $1,700 in their pocket to cover such expense? A terrible financial hardship. I will NEVER use Kayak again to book travel."
Pros: "Oversold didn't have seats but we were able to get on. They decided to use a smaller plan a large number of people could not leave. We were luckyOversold didn't have seats but we were able to get on. They decided to use a smaller plan a large number of people could not leave. We were luckyOversold didn't have seats but we were able to get on. They decided to use a smaller plan a large number of people could not leave. We were lucky"
Cons: "vwry stressful ending a vacation not knowing if you will get home until the last minute"
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly. The entertainment (monitors in the seat-backs) was excellent. The crew was friendly and helpful. The food was much better than I expected on a flight."
Cons: "I flew economy, so I didn't expect luxury, but that's a very tight fit for an 8-hour flight. I understand that industry standards have gone in this direction and that it's necessary to remain competitive, but at some point the industry needs to take into account the actual size of passengers. What are the seats now, about 16" wide? With so little leg room that I couldn't cross my legs if the seat in front of me was reclined. I'm a slim woman, about 130 lbs., and I was very (very) uncomfortable. I can hardly imagine the discomfort for the poor woman next to me (a plump post-middle-aged lady). I would definitely fly Air Canada again, as the staff was great and the overall experience was good. But I'm looking forward to the end of this trend of reducing space per passenger."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that my flight from the United Kingdom came in late and that resulted to missing my flight to Indianaplis and ruined my entire plan for the day."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very accommodating despite the full flight. It was comfortable and we received updates from the pilot and flight crew throughout the trip. Love Air Canada!"
Cons: "Air Canada was poor in staying on schedule which caused me to miss my connection. They did not have anyone in the airport to to guide me to where I needed to go to reschedule. It took 2 hours to claim my checked luggage before I could go to the hotel. Then when I called that night to reschedule my flight I was informed that I was already scheduled for the next day. It would have been nice to leave the airport with my boarding pass. Then in the morning had to stand in line for an hour before I could get a boarding pass for a flight that was again delayed. Luckily it was the last leg of my return trip."
Cons: "I GOT TO THE COUNTER 50 MINUTES BEFORE BOARDING AND WAS TOLD IT WAS CLOSED. I HAD TO SPEND ANOTHER $800 TO GET BACK TO THE US. I WILL --NEVER-- BOOK A FLIGHT WITH AIR CANADA, AND I HAVE ALREADY ADDRESSED ON SEVERAL SOCIAL MEDIA SITES HOW YOU TREAT YOUR CUSTOMERS. i'M NOT FINISHED WITH THAT EITHER. ANY RATING SYSTEM I CAN FIND I WILL LET THEM KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO ME. THE TWO WOMEN AT THE COUNTER AT HEATHROW WERE SNOTTY AND UNPROFESSIONAL. THERE WAS ABSOLUTELY NO REASON I WAS DENIED BOARDING. I HAD NO CHECKED LUGGAGE. I WILL ALSO NEVER USE KAYAK AGAIN, EITHER. THANKS FOR NOTHING."
Pros: "Everyone from the gate assistants to the flight crew were very professional and polite."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by half hour, but that was because of the weather, I guess."
Pros: "Individual employees at the gate seemed like good people who got stuck in a bad situation."
Cons: "The check-in process was needlessly difficult. We had to check in less than 12 hours before our flight because the website would not allow access. We could not choose our own seats until very late in the process. Our family was split up (we encountered 8 other families also split up, including single parents with young children). When most of us fixed this problem ourselves on the plane, we got lectured by flight attendants about the "wisdom" of checking in early. Boarding was very delayed because of overbooking and confusion; some people did not make it aboard even though they had been guaranteed a seat. Crew was apathetic, at best. The food was deplorable."
Pros: "Gate assignment was only 44 minutes before take off and with the size of LHR got there after boarding had started. Confusion as right beside it was an AC direct flight to Toronto also boarding so lines were mixing. A hot meal provided which was good except for a stale roll and awful "salad". A hot wrap provided later in flight that was awful, should have used pizza pockets. Good crew and good flight. Always carry active noise cancelling ear buds or headphones."
Pros: "courteous crew; partially empty flight so lots of space to move and lay out Food and entertainment good Air Canada is always a great airline to fly"
Pros: "Lucky as this was not a full flight so I had the seat next to me empty and lots of legroom with a bulkhead seat. The attendants were very nice and the onboard entertainment had a good selection."
Cons: "The food is just not good. Air canada needs to get a new provider."
Pros: "The plane appeared to be new. The TV screen was large and easy to navigate and the selection of movies very good. The crew was friendly and accomodating"
Cons: "The seats were very narrow and close together. It felt very crowded and I was glad I am only 5'1" -- I pity people who are of normal height. Also I was disappointed that a smaller plane was substituted for the original one that I booked, which necessitated a seat change [although I was still given the requested aisle seat]. The plane was totally full which made for a claustrophic flight. The food offered was mediocre, but I have come to expect that in economy."
Pros: "The crew and team did so wonderfully given a pretty bad situation. We had a passenger who had to be removed from the plane ... after that we tried leaving again, but due to a potential security risk went back to the gate a second time for a security sweep of the plane. This unfortunately caused us to be on the tarmac for two hours, but the crew did a wonderful job of keeping us informed, offering water, calming nerves, etc. Beautiful comfortable airplane as well."
Cons: "I have dietary restrictions and didn't feel there were many options. I wasn't aware that I could make special requests, so I will take advantage of that in the future. I did ask one flight attendant if the salad option was gluten free, and she said "I'm not sure," but also didn't offer to look into it further, meaning I didn't have food for my transatlantic flight. Luckily I took a few small snacks, but that was a little bit of a bummer all the same."
Pros: "On time. Good seat."
Pros: "The choice of movies, they were very current with a large selection"
Cons: "I thought the crew could have been a little more personable"
Pros: "Can't say anything nice: flights & crews only generally ok - ground & baggage handling a disaster. This was an unexpected trip for a funeral & we paid way more money for the fare than this trip deserved"
Cons: "Baggage handling is a joke - lost bags both ways & staff at airports is either untrained, indifferent or is trying to work with a broken computer system. Poor communication on cancellation/change of gates in Toronto - no requested text updates sent"
Pros: "New seats are excellent"
Pros: "Enough space between seats"
Cons: "Very little food"
Cons: "Flight was late due to mechanical issues. Couldn’t exit the plane in Chicago bc of JetWay malfunction."
Pros: "Flight was calm and arrived early"
Cons: "Odd seat rows are cramped. Food was below average. Dry salmon and chicken. Flight attendants were barely visible. My seat did not work properly"
Pros: "Loved the food. Great for flash frozen and then microwaved. Service was excellent, much better than the going flight."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and professional"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable"
Pros: "The boarding process went smoothly."
Cons: "The entertainment options were not that broad. Music for instance was only podcast?!"
Cons: "I understand sometimes there are problems with gates once a plane lands, but an hour on the tarmac waiting to get into a gate is ridiculous. Pay up to have gates available for your aircraft. We have choices when flying. If you disrespect the customer's time, we take our business elsewhere. Also, having the customer do everything from tagging our baggage and automated check-in at the airport should reflect in the price we pay for a flight. Instead, you make us do all the work and keep prices the same."
Pros: "Fast loading and effect attendant"
Pros: "Everything was good."
Pros: "The international flights were fine."
Pros: "There was plenty of room because the flight was less than half full. There was a very friendly and helpful female flight attendant with an Asian ethnic background."
Cons: "It was impossible to check in online because I have a U.S. Green Card. Something should be done to fix this. It shouldn't be too difficult. There was a gray-haired male flight attendant who was extremely negative and unfriendly. Perhaps (I hope) he was really a security guard. But if he is going to serve people, he has to understand the concept of service."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice,"
Cons: "Seats are much too cramped. Even for economy seat, it is difficult to move."
Pros: "Entertainment via the phone was nice First meal was okay with pasta and bread Facilities were clean Power source below seat was good"
Cons: "Entertainment via plane monitors was bad Sound for entertainment via plane monitors kept breaking up Second meal with a turkey sando and chips was bland Seats weren't comfortable No internet provided"
Pros: "Cabin crew were great"
Cons: "Seating in cabin is horribly tight"
Pros: "Customer service was very good and the attendants went out of their way to make the passengers as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "Plane was extremely old and did not have tv's in the consoles. Very painful to take a 12 hour flight with minimal entertainment. The wifi was not working so could not even use the personal device entertainment. Definitely felt like the airline did not value the customers or our comfort."
Pros: "Thumbs-up to the flight attendant who filled my metal water bottle to the top."
Cons: "I needed to work on this flight but never got online. Disturbingly, I pressed the flight attendant button twice to ask why unitedwifi.com was "unable to handle this request" for so long, but no one came to my seat. Much later, when the food cart came by, the attendant at the front told the other one to reset my light. The second one then asked if I had a question -- but didn't know what the wifi problem was. Hours later I did manage to get onto unitedwifi.com and learned that it's impossible to connect to using Chrome. Why did the crew not know this?! Then I was confronted with the $20 price tag to get on the internet. I started to pay, but the transaction took so long to complete that I realized it would be pointless to connect if that was the speed I could expect."
Cons: "The dinner, Thai Chicken Curry, contained nuts. Nobody communicated that to the passengers. I ate the Curry, not knowing there were nuts in the dish - I am allergic to nuts. Spent much of the flight feeling sick, being physically sick, feeling ill and not being able to think about anything else. After reading the Curry container cover, it did say the dish contained nuts. But the flight staff, I think, should have communicated this. Also who puts a dish with nuts in it on a plane, with all the allergies that passengers could have? I was not going to die from the experience, but some people are more allergic than I am. I think this choice of menu was very inappropriate."
Pros: "The stewards and stewardesses served us well."
Cons: "The plane was an older one, and the overhead storage spaces were small."
Pros: "The check in process was very fast and efficient"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. We even arrived a half hour early."
Cons: "I booked this one as a Lufthansa flight, so I was disappointed to find out that it was actually just United. I've never encountered an airline bait and switch like that before. Also there was a group of children on the flight who were screaming (not crying – very literally screaming) at the top of their lungs for a long stretch of the flight."
Cons: "The UA in flight entertainment system is absurd. It doesn't consistently work and when it does it forces passengers to use small devices, etc."
Pros: "Pilots kept us well informed Flight arrived early Staff were very nice"
Cons: "The 757-200 is a small older plane for such a premium route of London to NY. Conditions felt cramped. The 767 going the other way was much more pleasant with the extra aisle for stretching your legs. The main meals were not nice, pasta options were not appetizing at all."
Pros: "United airlines handled the flit gut and their international service is excellent."
Pros: "The crew were so friendly and professional. They looked like they were genuinely enjoying their job. The crew were London based on both of my journeys and both crews were excellent. Thank you United Airlines for making my flight an enjoyable experience."
Cons: "I don't being changed to United flights"
Pros: "Offering food and drinks as part of ticket price, on-time departure, efficient service."
Cons: "More leg room without extra fees."
Pros: "The plane flew."
Cons: "We must have had the oldest plane in the fleet. Small screen entertainment with cycling channel movies, not individual choice ... And my screen did not even work. Uncomfortable seating. Poor meal choice. Service was average, some of the staff seemed to be doing the best they could with what they were given. Some didn't seem to try at all. Why is United so far behind any other sta Star"
Pros: "Enjoyed the extra leg room, choice in movies, how smooth the flight was."
Cons: "The food was ok, the stewardess wasn't very friendly, it was like I was inconveniencing her, although I never asked for anything extra and always said please and thank you."
Pros: "Good price. Good service."
Cons: "Ground staff was racist. Standards vary depending the color."
Pros: "We didn't crash"
Cons: "The gate attendant reopened the plane for the man in front of me because he had one book bag and refused to let me on because I had two. The room and taxi voucher were adequate. But $30 in food vouchers doesn't get you very far in an airport. Also that's just enough to survive the lay over that was caused by your maintenance issues. Your attendant then tried to put me on standby all day the following day with a guaranteed flight at 8pm. I then asked him to check other airlines and was able to get an 8am one. The sheer lack of customer service is impressive. PS if your airline screws up, the least I deserve is a seat upgrade or some free sky mile points."
Cons: "The United Terminal at Newark is hideous and United should be ashamed to be associated with this poor quality. The airport is a construction zone at best. The aircraft is tiny, cramped and inadequate."
Cons: "Kayak suckssssssssss"
Pros: "The stewardesses wee attentive. Liked my other passengers around me."
Cons: "The food was mediocre. The seat did not feel any larger for $189 extra! The internet never stated on for a longer period of time"
Pros: "enough leg room (I'm 5'10") vegetarian dish was delicious many choices of new movies alcoholic beverages were good"
Cons: "Flight got cancelled, we did not receive an email or text. We found out when we reached the Heathrow airport. We got booked on another flight, with 6 hour layover. When the flight that got cancelled was a direct flight. Then our luggage was not put on the connecting flight, we got our luggage 24 hours later."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Waited half an hour to take off"
Pros: "excellent aircraft, roomy, comfortable and clean. the flight attendants were very attentive but not pushy"
Cons: "very full flight ... tourist season?"
Pros: "The flight attendants were attentive and polite."
Pros: "Good movies, empty seats so i could stretch out."
Cons: "The crew was nice! But a little awkward. The food was kind of bad."
Pros: "Boarding was swift, seat was fine, service was pleasant, flight was uneventful."
Cons: "Entertainment system was a tiny, pixelated screen playing a few movies on loop. Felt like it was 20 years old. Food was fine, but the pre-landing snack was a very greasy, ham and cheese on pretzel roll sandwhich."
Cons: "Crew was rude and did not reply to my call button when I rang it 3 times. Boarding was confusing. Instructions to get your passport checked before your zone boarded was not clear. Boarding agents were pleasant, but onboard crew was rude."
Pros: "The crew both ways were professional and hard working."
Cons: "The flight was a code share with United. Seats were ridiculously cramped in economy. Perhaps this is the new normal--I haven't flown internationally in a while. Food was just ok. I was disappointed that I was not flying Air New Zealand since that was part of the reason I booked this flight."
Pros: "Stewards were great."
Cons: "Sat on runway for 40 minutes before taking off and 45 minutes before we docked and get off the plane...."
Cons: "Wifi was atrocious and I spent $16.99 on it. No one was manning the jet bridge so after we took off 2 hours late we had another delay of 15 minutes on the arrival. Our late takeoff was due to some plane issue, we missed our window and got held up by traffic control. Weather was perfect. All UAL fault."
Pros: "The food actually was good, entertainment option were good."
Cons: "I encountered some of the worst staff ever on this flight. I was skipped over and completely ignored during more than once. I even told the guy I wanted water with ice when he asked me and then he starting socializing with others and skipped me. When I brought it to his attention he got all pissy with me. The other crew man was older and made me very uncomfortable. He was yelling at people constantly and made it very clear that he hates his job. This was the coldest flight I've even been on. Literally everyone was wrapped in their blankets and it still wasn't enough. The staff was told several times but refused to do anything. The guy in front of me had his seat row 39 middle left fully reclined back for the whole flight. Not once did anyone tell him to put it up during takeoff and meal times. He kept rocking the seat and spilled my drink in my lap."
Pros: "The staff at check-in at Terminal 2 at Heathrow airport were lovely... friendly, helpful. My suitcase was overweight so I had to remove 4lbs from my suitcase and redistribute it into my hand luggage. The staff were so polite and patient and had a very supportive attitude."
Cons: "1) The staff at the gate were mechanical and had an air of snootiness...non-genuine behaviour. 2) Cabin staff were not attentive and also very abrupt and short when approached for anything, despite the flight being at 30% capacity. 3) My arm was bandaged from my fingertips to my shoulder but when I asked staff to assist me with my hand luggage they refused 4) Food quantitiy was EXTREMELY low and the quality was appalling....there was less food given than in a MacDonalds Happy Meal."
Cons: "Flew on 747 not as comfortable and enjoyable as the dreamliners."
