Pros: "Check in was fast. Airport was hassle free. Uber was easy."
Pros: "Alaska's crew are routinely friendly, warm, yet no-nonsense, and I love this about them. They worked hard to keep very tired early-morning passengers from rioting during a long delay. I also enjoyed seeing our flight attendant serving some serious unimpressed face to a woman who was being an entitled diva."
Cons: "Our pilot disappeared for our 6am flight (reassigned to another flight or something), leaving us waiting on the tarmac while another was still driving to the airport, apparently. When a whole flight of people has gotten up to get to the airport at 4am for a flight that early, this kind of logistical snafu is incredibly frustrating -- plus, most of us wouldn't choose a flight that early if we didn't have somewhere to be."
Cons: "Hour long wait on the tarmac at SJC was uncomfortable at best"

Cons: "Asked at check-in if my barcode was ok to use bc I did not receive an automated email for return check-in, she said "Let me see, yes that's good, but hurry up because you have 40min before your plane departs". Low and behold, security said my barcode was not valid and had to run back and forth to get a new one printed. What made it worse was the check in clerk wanted to argue her point and there was only one flight attendant available and boarding closed 12min prior to departure, I was standing and waiving through the gates window trying to get all the flight attendants attention. I could have made it but missed my flight. Horrible experience!"
Pros: "Leg room, boarding"

Pros: "You have a good airline. It was clean and everyone was friendly all communication was good EXCEPT before I got to the airport I forgot my visa and thought all I’d have to do is call Qantas and they’d advise me."
Cons: "Every time I’d call an 800 number I’d get someone in South Africa who was sooooo unhelpful. I’m sure she had her script but for heavensake all I needed to do was to go online and get a visa. And I saw someone in San Francisco at the ticket counter get a visa and yet I was told I wouldn’t be flying that night as I had forgotten to get a visa. No help at all !! I know I wasn’t the only person that ever got a visa. I was told to call my consulate. Clearly there was a simple way to get a visa and I was so freaked out until I figured it out myself. Made it so unpleasant."
Pros: "The flight was perfect, good leg space in economy, food was good both breakfast and dinner, even snacks were available during the flight."
Cons: "We did not get on our flight because we weren’t notified of the time change. Extremely dissatisfied with customer service and the overall airline."

Cons: "The crew was not all that friendly in my section"
Pros: "Overall the flight was lovely. Flight crew was wonderful and I can’t say enough good things."
Pros: "Sat in a business class seat in the upper deck and has a window seat so the “storage compartments” near the window are huge and I love having all my carryon items so available to me at all tunes. Also like the storage of inflight items on top of the compartmants during the flight."

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Food was terrible (gave it 1 star because it showed up) and boarding was chaotic"
Pros: "Good food on the plane; friendly staff."
Cons: "Horrible accomodations; I've never been in a flight this tight before. It was miserable the whole way. Even Southwest is roomier. I should have taken an American carrier. Space is the number one priority on a flight across the Pacific, and Qantas really doesn't understand that. I've taken Delta, American, and United across both ponds. Stick with them! After all, I can make my own food."
Pros: "Cleanliness and comfort of plane, professionalism and courtesy of staff. Quiet, dark cabin allowed for restful trip."
Cons: "Paid for seats not available even though purchased in advance. Unhelpful crew for mother with baby and carry on. Multiple trips to get to seat."

Pros: "Plane, when I boarded, at least in Coach, smelled like vendors hot-dog water. Took an hour and a half to be offered a drink of anything other than a bottle water. By the end of the flight, trash in the aisles, lavatories were nasty."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "On time. Smooth ride. Shorter than expected. Great service."
Cons: "Headset broken on entertainment system. Ancient hardware. Food. Meh."

Cons: "Wish there was more leg room and ability to lie down. It was a 12-13 hour flight."
Pros: "Staff. Entertainment was okay . Flight arrived in less than 13 hours rather than posted 13hr 40min"
Cons: "Leg room for such a long flight is unacceptable. Connecting west jet flight was twice as much from lax to vancouver. Food was very poor."

Pros: "Nothing because this flight never happened."
Pros: "Everyone and everything"
Pros: "The staff was great, the individual screens and entertainment options were great. Boarding and service was excellent. Included meal and meal options."

Cons: "Turbulence along the Route"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hr 30 min because of catering issues. Because of that only one hot meal for 14 hr flight. Diabetic food was the worst I ever had. My prepaid seat for extra $35 AUD wasn't available. The seat was uncomfortable and the pillow was huge - I had to put it on a floor. I am surprised why Qantas is rated #9 among best airlines for 2016. I will try to avoid Qantas in the gorier."
Pros: "Overall everything was great, flights were on time, boarded efficiently, staff very friendly."
Cons: "I think the service of offering passengers to order their food online prior to the flight is nice, but in practice is inefficient and frustrating at service time. We chose not to order in advance as we didn't know what we wanted. I was annoyed and frustrated to have to wait for the crew to go to and fro with meals and drinks to the pre-ordered customers before being offered our meal. I imagine that if the entire flight preordered their meal, it was also not work so well..."
Cons: "I made the same flight last year on a newer plane. This time I missed having water bottles available at all times."
Pros: "Attentive crew Loved that they ranged in ages and races I also loved that the crew were helpful and cheery Crew interacted with my daughter well and always stopped to talk or smile at my daughter as they walked past Qantas are truly the best!"

Pros: "Staff was attentive and pleasant. Seat was comfortable, good knee room. Left and arrived on-time. Good experience."
Cons: "Reclining seats need to either go away, or be built so that reclining takes leg room away from the person reclining. Why should I be punished for a rude passenger in front of me who decides to punish me by reclining their seat?"
Pros: "Staff’s attention and patience with customers was great. They knew many were frustrated with the delay but they met our needs with a smile"
Cons: "Weather delay was a real bummer but I liked the app wanted to help reconnect people with other flights. The app should also tell us the reason for the delay, if allowable, especially if it weather. I almost hoed on another flight through Minneapolis but would have been stuck in Minneapolis cause I didn’t know the delay was due to weather an hour later."
Pros: "comfortable seats enough overhead bin space."
Pros: "Got me to my destination, just not comfortably"
Cons: "Seating is ridiculously cramped and overhead storage is small"
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "Flight ifself was okay once on the plane"

Pros: "Good clean aircraft. Fairly comfortable seats. Even had a power outlet in my row. Not too bad for an aircraft from the late 70s."

Pros: "Makes all the difference to have Flight attendants and pilots all wonderful. Gratefully, ~Elana"
Cons: "They were very dishonest about everything. We need to be there in Australia on Monday morning for very important event but reached Australia Monday night 8PM. Virgin Australia contatcted out their flight from SJC to LAX through Delta and Delta cancelled flights becaue no-show of Pilot to operate the plan. What a Joke???? We asked them to put us through another carrier to LAX for connecting flight they refused.Very very BAD. It was a big miss for us.. never again Delta/Virgin Australia.............."
Pros: "Quick friendly service from crew and captain."
Cons: "First class seat was broken was reclined and super uncomfortable the whole flight the plane was super outdated and old."

Pros: "I liked that flight time was shorter than expected"
Cons: "no screens, only wify entertainment, app is working only with ios and android. seats don't have much leg room, and not very comfortable. i paid for extra luggage, and they were strict about the weight(had to take any items out of the bag, even that i had one large bag, and one small bag(2nd bag was underweight)"
Pros: "Flight management and service is better relatively"
Cons: "Gate agents are useless"

Pros: "All that one would want."
Pros: "Flights were on time and friendly attendants!"
Pros: "I was a little concerned flying West Jet due to poor experiences in the past with Delta, but the flights were on time, staff friendly and accommodating and the plane very comfortable."

Cons: "The crew didn't even have the decency to wait for passengers to deplane. They were long gone by the time we got off. I found this pretty terrible service. Oh yeah and they announced the wrong arrival gate too. I'll never fly Delta again. There are better airlines that treat customers with more respect."
Pros: "Courtesy seating"
Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "They want us there at 4:20 for a 6:20am flight but Clear doesn't open until 5. I was through checkin by 4:23. Why bother if one can't get to the breakfast facilities for another half hour plus? Then Peet's had no pastries."
Pros: "Everything was just as I have come to expect -- efficient, polite, and courteous crewe"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and incredible kind staff"
Cons: "No food, drinks, or entertainment. But it was an extremely short flight."
Cons: "At least 10, including my entertainment systems didn't work as soon as we took off. A 4 1/2 hour flight cross country with no entertainment, very disappointing. The crew was very unorganized, they couldn't even figure out how to give drinks and snacks in an efficient manner with initially skipping several rows without asking about either. Seat headrests were not adjustable up and down."
Cons: "Sold us a flight with unassigned seats"
Pros: "Take off and landing was incredibly done. Almost unnoticeable that didn't make me nervous at all."
Cons: "Very rude flight attendant - unnecessary attitude"
Pros: "New and improved food options!"
Cons: "Boarding took more time than usual. They were able to accommodate less carry on baggage."
Pros: "the embraer 175 is VERY comfortable, despite being a smaller jet."
Cons: "Just an FYI - the small overhead bin space on the Embraer 175 made it so that many passengers bags needed to be checked at the gate to baggage."

Pros: "the flight on Delta and Virgin Atlantic was nothing other than brilliant!"
Cons: "everything - service - facilities - food - amenities - an overall wonderful experience!"

Cons: "No westjet checkin area and no signage. Staff didn't know what was going on."
Pros: "The crew kept it together even though the situation was stacked against them."
Cons: "The plane was really late, changed gates a number of times and switched from one terminal to another then back to the original terminal again. My understanding was this flight was a mess the previous week as well which says that something needs to be fixed. The temperature on the flight fluctuated back and forth from too hot to okay. You get the picture."
Pros: "Pleasant flight overall. All else normal."
Cons: "Nothing negative stands out"
Pros: "Each leg of my flight from San Jose to Anchorage was met with helpful staff and courtesy beyond the price of my ticket."

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "No entertainment at all, read the brochure a few times"

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Pros: "The two flights were fine, nice WestJet staff on the ground and in the air. But it will be very inconvenient if I don’t get my clothes, toiletries, and other things I need for my trip."

Cons: "Maybe a movie for everyone."

Cons: "If we have something to watch."
Pros: "I booked Cathay pacific but they changed to China Southern without any notification."
Cons: "Choosing my seats without paying extra."
Pros: "This is a no frills flight that does not offer food or entertainment."
Cons: "Seats are always uncomfortable as it is a smallplane"
Cons: "Charging customers for meals on a transatlantic flight is a terrible way to nickel and dime your customers for the most basic provisions. Not all travellers carry accepted credit cards, including the woman sitting beside me. Because it is so common (formally standardized) for airlines to provide food on longer flights, many travellers assume their WestJet flight will the same and arrive unprepared. I normally love WestJet for their customer service, but these flight attendants talked down to customers with legitimate questions. I am choosing another airline for my next international flight, although reluctantly so - I hope to see some changes from WestJet for a more comfortable flight."
Pros: "I got to watch "The Post", which took the entire time of the flight. I've wanted to see that movie for months and didn't know how that would happen! Easy flight, good service, friendly crew."
Pros: "On time, friendly staff and service."
Pros: "That I didn’t have to pay extra to check my bike as luggage. The crew and folks who work for west jet were really really friendly and helpful."
Cons: "That my bike didn’t arrive with me on the plane and that it wasn’t trackable once I arrived so I have no idea it’s status. It might interfere with my ability to complete my bike trip as planned, depending on how long it’s delayed."
Pros: "Did not expect anything but it was actually good and pleasant."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 6 hours"
Pros: "Super friendly staff, on-time flight, good entertainment options; very satisfied"
Pros: "Clean planes, positive and a bit funny attendants, easy in boarding. Service that is wonderful."
Pros: "The stewards and stewardess were fantastic."
Cons: "Its a little cramped in the seats."
Pros: "Delayed 2hours 30 min"
Cons: "Never flying with wast jets any more"
Pros: "Great staff and spacious plane"
Pros: "The crew and flight was amazing."
Cons: "Checking in was horrible. I stood in line while many of the agents kept chatting with each other. Then when they finally noticed that I was still standing there 2 of them waved at me. The agent who checked me in acted like I was inconveniencing her, she had a really bad attitude."
Cons: "the 3 hr security line up"
Pros: "Thankfully our flight wasn't 100% full. Our baby got a seat to herself, which allowed her to sleep the whole trip, ans my legs didn't fall asleep from her weight. Blessing! The staff were very accomodating and friendly for parents travelling with young children."
Cons: "Internet was down so not entertainment whatsoever. Planes of any size or length of travel should have at least a few tv's so we can watch something to pass the time. Cookies are surprisingly delicious, but your choice between pretzels and cookies are very limiting (and boring). Another option would be much loved."
Cons: "Let me see, waited over an hour for a flight to catch up from Ottawa. Now flight to Vancouver over an hour late, gets in about 10 minutes before flight to Hong Kong leaves. So they say will wait for us as flight not full. Nope, flight leaves without 7 of us. Got the " don't know what happened" look. So they give us a $60 dollar food voucher, and take us to hotel because now must wait 12 hours for next flight. Tell us to be in lobby at a certain time to catch shuttle back to airport. Time comes, sorry no room, and buggers off. They call taxis, when drivers find drive for vouchers, tell us to load own baggage! Not likely to fly West Jet again."
Pros: "the westjet app is great. however the flight home did not have it.."
Cons: "on our westjet to Puerto Vallarta the air conditioning vent above my brother's seat dripped all over him. on the trip back the screen on the back of the seat in front of my other brother didn't work so we had to share. not terrible, but a little annoying considering the amount we pay for tickets."
Pros: "Stewardess let me change seats to a cooler part of the cabin at the back of the plane."
Cons: "The air temperature in the cabin was too hot."
Pros: "smooth, on time"
Pros: "On time. Crew was great"
Cons: "Took a long time for the ground crew to set up the bridge which caused delay in deplaning"
Cons: "I'm a bit disappointed by the services provided by Westjet: 1) I never received the confirmation of my fight/booking from Westjet; 2) I was not aware that the connecting from LA to SJ and SJ to LA were operated by different companies therefore I was not able to check in or even to check the gate information at the airport. I almost missed my flight from SJ to LA in the early morning 3) at the SJ airport, I was not aware that the flight from SJ to LA was operated by Delta not American airline. However, the Westjet customer services 1-888 number listed in your Kayak confirmation was not a correct number. I even tried to look up another customer services number of Westjet by searching the Westjet website, the number I found was not in service neither. I almost missed my flight from SJ to LA 4) At the LA airport I was told that I was not able to board the flight because I did not have the Canadian ETA. they said they would pull my checked luggages and flight them with my re-scheduled flight and will be shipped to the final destination Vancouver, Canada. when I arrived Vancouver, both suitcases were not arrived with my flight. One arrived with my original flight and the second were missing. The agent could not even tell me where the suitcase was. Moreover, the second did not arrive the time I was told it should arrive. My second suitcase was not allocated even before I left Vancouver to Europe one day after my travel. 5) No one responded to the luggage services number provided in the document. I could only successfully login to the link for the checking the status after I returned home in Brussels. 6) I was told that the second suitcase will be delivered to my home in Europe by another company. Currently I'm still waiting for my second suitcase."
Cons: "Got there 2 minutes after check in closed and wouldn't let us fly"
Pros: "Everything was shipshape and organized. Every crew membe r we talked with seemed knowledgeable and friendly. Good value."
Pros: "The flight was pretty good specially during landing"
Cons: "we didnt have an eta number to check in our flight on time. The front desk staff iwas so nice and helpful to rebook a later flight for us without having us to pay extra."
Pros: "The attendants were very cordial and considerate."
Cons: "My son did not do well with the food on the trip. He became ill. The food did not smell particularly delicious."
Pros: "staff was nice, plane clean"
Cons: "cheap airlines! They do not feed you on an international flight! You have to buy your seat ahead of time, or get assigned. You have to pay for all your luggage. They do not even give one bag on international flight. You can down load an app for entertainment, or rent their ipads. Many of us said, worst customer care ever, and never again"
Pros: "Very reasonable fares, pleasant service. I had to call customer service and got prompt help."
Cons: "I've had two flights with WestJet. Both flights had their take-off times altered significantly a couple of months ahead of time. (One by 45 minutes, one by 2 hours.) In addition, both took off 2-3 hours late."
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Pros: "Being disabled I found everyioine very helpful and friendly"
Pros: "row to myself"
Cons: "no free wine!"
Cons: "During my booking I ended up with my return flight being on the same day as my departing flight. I was surprised that this was not noticed as I would not have even reached Vancouver before I was scheduled to return. My fault too as I did not look at the tickets when I printed then off before we left Fortunately there was only a 120.00 charged to change our tickets. I am just thankful my husband noticed the day before we got to the airport to come home as the flight was totally booked."
Cons: "tow ticky packs of snaks in 5 hours flight"
Cons: "When we were checking in, they told us we had not payed for our seats and the flight was full so we could not sit together? I did not understand that. Long overnight flight so I was counting on my wife and I leaning on each other to get some sleep so that was no so good."
Pros: "friendly service. Both ground staff and attendants"
Pros: "Seat was very comfortable, plenty of leg room."
Cons: "Food trays left for 45 mins. This was premium economy Check in took forever even though I checked in 3 hours before departure. Didn't seem to be any staff near self serve check in screens to advise passengers."
Cons: "Simply everything"
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "The size of the plane"
Cons: "Leg space."
Cons: "They lost our bags. Many of us on board. And they didn’t give us tracking numbers to follow-up. Argh"
Cons: "Cold coffee."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. The entertainment wasn't bad there was a pretty good option of movies and shows."
Cons: "The food was gross. The curry chicken I got looked like paste over disgusting rubber rice. The breakfast didn't taste great either. It gave me stomach pain."
Pros: "Quality service."
Cons: "Vegetarian dinner of pasta was uninteresting. The Indian meal in the other direction was much better."
Pros: "We nisssed it due to British airways ineptitudeeverythubg"
Pros: "Excellent food and service."
Cons: "Seats were too tight on the A380."
Pros: "Checking in online 24 hours prior to departure I received up-dates thrice regarding the delay of the flight which was very convenient. I had also learned about the protections that I enjoy as a passenger checking in online. The flight caught up in terms of timing as I had to catch a connecting flight to the continent from London. I was very pleased, also with the courteous flight attendents, the food, the entertainment selection and sufficient leg room in economy class. Overall a lovely experience, indeed!"
Cons: "It has been a week and British airways still hasn't delivered my suitcase."
Pros: "Easy online Check in. Nice crew."
Cons: "Very tight space on flights."
Cons: "Our vegetarian food was not available as requested."
Pros: "On time. Friendly crew, planes in very nice conditions."
Cons: "Could have had more offers of water."
Pros: "The entertainment selection and the friendly crew."
Cons: "The seats on the first flight were incredibly uncomfortable. There was no leg room, the aisles were incredibly narrow, and the seats were so close together that my neighbor and I bumped arms throughout the flight, and neither of us are large people. That was our first flight on BA and unfortunately it will probably be our last."
Pros: "Pleasant check in process. Long layover tags put on our checked bags On time"
Pros: "Very nice flight attendants"
Cons: "Did not have wifi or live TV"
Pros: "The food was decent especially considering that most don't even offer meals anymore. The movie selection was excellent"
Cons: "It was probably one of the fullest flights I've ever been on and the seats were so small and jammed together by 2/3 through the flight I was actually in pain. I don't remember things being so tight on my last international flight."
Pros: "This flight was for my mother. The wheelchair service was very helpful. The crew were very nice. The food was great. Will fly with BA again."
Pros: "The ground crew at checkin were friendly."
Cons: "The old aircraft that looked like it had seen better days. The old entertainment system that was jittery and crashed."
Pros: "I was seated on the upper deck of a 747 (63K) and had plenty of room. The cabin was quiet even though the plane was full. Service was excellent. I enjoyed the food. Cabin crew were great."
Cons: "The entertainment system was old and didn't have the selection of programs available on newer aircraft. Flight map was not at all detailed. Time for an upgrade BA! Boarding was a bit of mess. BA has so many different categories of who gets to board first that it got to be very confusing. People couldn't understand if it was their turn or not and people kept being turned away to wait their turn. It would be far easier if people were given a number from 1-5 like Air Canada and they call those numbers which are also printed on your boarding pass. I was flying business class and I think it a terrible cheek that they charge extra (in my case $129-$159 EACH WAY) to select your seat in advance. That's insane considering what I have already spent on the business class ticket. Seems like a money grab to me. I usually fly Air Canada, and this high extra charge will probably make me think twice about flying BA in the future."
Cons: "The low resolution screens and limited programming compared to other airlines and aircraft"
Pros: "Pleasant flight crew"
Pros: "Great food."
Cons: "Not much space for a long flight."
Pros: "The food was good and free."
Cons: "I bought a ticket from British airlines but the first leg of the trip was with Vueling. The online check in at British Airlines sent me to Vueling but I couldn't check in with British. We had to stand in line at Vueling to check our bags and then with British Airlines to get Get the boarding passes for the other two legs of our our trip. The bags didn't make the switch. British Airlines found our bags in 2 days but 5 days later that's a week later the web check of our file says bags ready for Delivery and call help line can not talk to the airport to find out the problem."
Pros: "even better!"
Cons: "Wheelchair attendant was late picking me up from the Club World lounge (at least the British Airways agent monitoring the whole thing cared and kept us updated while we sat out front waiting. Despite the fact that I'd checked with BA the previous night that yes, I was registered to have a gluten-free meal (as of two weeks beforfehand), the flight attendants had no record of this and no GF meal had been included for me. Entertainment = faded screens, bad touch screen interface, crashed nd needed to be rebooted at one point, touch screen minimally responsive, a shockingly small number of choices. Did not have wireless or a usb port, but fortunately there was a universal AC outlet and I had my wall charger along so that I could spend most of the flight using my iPad to read. I'm especially displease with the food, boarding process, and entertainment considering my boyfriend's and my seats were Club World seats I'd paid for (rather than receiving them as a reward). On the bright side, the lie-flat seats saved me from days of post-flight pain, so it could have been worse. Not pleased overall, and the next time I travel internationally, I'll probably chooseanother airline if the prices only differ by a few hundred dollars."
Pros: "First time I enjoy flying , everything was very good"
Pros: "Friendly efficient service"
Pros: "Everything related to the flight was very good."
Cons: "My wife lost her passport aboard the aircraft; it was not recovered. We do not feel that the BA staff did an adequate search. This caused us great difficulties with the immigration authorities at Heathrow."
Pros: "Not too much."
Cons: "No USB chargers or in seat power supply. Couldn't charge phone. Tiny screen with limited entertainment. Archaic system. No recognition of one world Sappire status. Bad food options, chicken or veg only. Very "grey" Englush Breakfast. Dinner food option not as announced. The entire experience was poor. Grumpy crew who seemed flustered and were not paying attention to service."
Pros: "BA's customer service was excellent and they helped us out by getting on the next plane with minimal delay ... By 4 hours."
Cons: "I was told a 2 hour transit time would be sufficient but when we arrived in London, we had to go through several gates with long lines at Terminal 5. I was leary that this was achievable without the long lines but on this day, we couldn't even get past the first gate before they told us that we will miss our connecting flight."
Pros: "The new A380 seats are absolutely awful."
Cons: "The try tables are small and already falling apart. The seats fell like they're already 20 years old, yet it's a new aircraft."
Pros: "The sound levels were way low resulting in much lower stress on this aircraft. The beast flew extremely well and was amazingly huge. The BA food was the best I had ever had on an airplane, (in economy) and generous, fresh and varied. The flight crew was very professional and the landings and take-offs were for my wife who is very sensitive to such events, very nice. Fantastic assortment of entertainment."
Cons: "There was not enough water available, and I made the mistake of not buying in the terminal. There is no public area to move around in, which I kind of thought there would be for such a huge airplane. The seats and room were even less than other airplanes (in "World Traveler"--economy) which is a drag because I am a bit shy of 6'. The seat in front of me was about 10" from my face during the flight with mine reclined all the way (and the person in front of me) Pretty much impossible to sleep--ugh."
Pros: "On time, no crashes"
Cons: "Extremely uncomfortable, hardly any room to breath"
Cons: "Seats were very cramped (as elsewhere) and I wish there were truly vegetarian options among the main options without having to order special meals. Otherwise good experience."
Pros: "Arrived at my destination"
Cons: "Bought British Air tickets, got their partner airline American Air flight instead and didn't know of this switch until after purchase. Very rude! Crappy old plane, departed late, crappy food, mediocre service. I wanted British Air specifically as they are good in these areas."
Cons: "BA ticket price on Kayak, and possibly on other sites as well, does not disclose that you cannot reserve a seat without paying additional $50 for this normal process. To compare "apples to apples" or prices with other competitive airlines we should add this $50.00 per ticket, but there is no disclosure regarding this "minor" change. I could not do "on-line" checking as well in less than 24-hour prior to the flight time. When I call the agent I received the same answer: you cannot check in now: the system prohibit it. To my surprise I found that most of the passengers, who probably paid this ransom of $50 successfully checked-in. The remaining seats were the most uncomfortable one (middle of the row)."
Pros: "That we made it safe"
Cons: "Seat not comfortable at all and crews not enjoyable. They barely smile. They were all about business We had an hour delay and I almost miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "The seat itself is adequate, but falling behind the times. The service of the FAs makes up for it though"
Pros: "This was by the far the best flight experience ive had in my life. British Airways was amazing. The staff was awesome and helpful. The food wasn't so bad either, there was a lot given so it was nice to have the options. the seats were so much better than others ive been on as well and I just loved the entertainment options. if I wasn't so sleepy I wish I could've watched more movies and tv! overall amazing and id book with british airways again"
Cons: "After keeping us on the plane for several hours, we were informed of a mechanical issue and they canceled the flight altogether. We were then instructed to deplane where the BA crew and staff then gave us incorrect information as to where our baggage was, how we were to rebook, etch. Basically they had ZERO response to the issue and were completely unhelpful . The 200+ passengers were left to figure it out on our own. They next day the rescheduled flight was also delayed several hours with no real explanation which caused us to miss our further connection, which cost us 2 days of our vacation. I requested some sort of upgrade for the trouble on the return flight and they refused.They did however apologize profusely..they were REALLY good at that part."
Pros: "It was American Plane and seat comfort and space WAS GREAT."
Pros: "Departure was on time and the crew members were exceptional."
Cons: "There was nothing about this trip not to like."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I didn't get to take the flight because I had a family emergency and changing the flight would have cost more than the flight itself, so I lost the flight, and my lifelong dream of going to Ireland was out the window."
Cons: "After everyone was boarded in the plane, the pilot announced that a fuel pump was broken and that they would try to fix it. 2 and half hours later, the pilot announced they couldn't fix it and that a new one would have to come from London to San Francisco to replace it (as if the only place to get decent plane parts was London)!!!! The plane was rescheduled to fly the next day at 18.00. It didn't actually leave until after midnight, causing us to miss our connecting flights not just once, but again the next day. Communication by British Airways about what was going on and when we could expect to fly was awful throughout, and their customer service was worse than abysmal. I will avoid flying BA in the future."
Cons: "Too short time for connecting flight resulted in missing my connection. BA decided to try a new software system on a high travel date which resulted in an hour delay. Many passengers missed their connecting flights."
