Both outbound (on 12/06) and inbound (today’s) Qatar flights were late. The delay today made me miss my connection and added 7 hours to my 30-hour journey making it 37 hours of traveling! Very disappointed with Qatar.
Comfortable aircraft and excellent service.
Good food, comfortable seating, excellent service throughout. Professional, yet friendly and nice crew. My first experience with Qatar airlines, I would select Qatar for my future travels and recommend the service to my friends. Thank you.
unfortunately we were unable to travel at this time due to the ongoing Covid situation in Sri Lanka. we hope to go instead in March 2022.
Pros: "We really enjoyed this airline!"
Pros: "Great entertainment choices. Staff friendly and attentive, particularly nice is that they feed children first, and offer small entertainment gifts to them."
Cons: "As such everything was fine."
Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time. Children aboard did not cry !uch."
Cons: "Boarding by bus at Doha is lengthy and not very comfortable."
Cons: "Quatar is the best"
Pros: "1. All flights were on time. 2. The aircrafts were clean and tidy. 3. The choice of entertainment was plentiful. 4. Possibility to connect to internet provided on outbound leg, not on inbound."
Cons: "1. The boarding process, in general, could be improved. 2. The "official" transit time was one hour, but passengers were made to wait while the business class disembarked, reducing actual transit time to 30 mins. Considering distance to departing gate, and security checks, this was stressful."
Cons: "Cancellation of the flight could have done before boarding."
Pros: "Flight not full, so space to move. Great service"
Pros: "seat space with leg room."
Pros: "Boarding process was good. But security check is inconsistent at different locations within the Airport terminal."
Cons: "Poor Seat comfort. Too narrow seats. USB charger were not working. Tamil language movies were very few. Crew was efficient but were not polite and not cordial."
Pros: "The service on our flights was wonderful! Qatar is the best airline that I’ve ever flown on."
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Food was terrible. Need a variety. Curry is not for everyone."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. And the food choices were good."
Pros: "Flight crew was quick to provide food and drinks but quality of the food was not as good as Emirates."
Cons: "-carry-on did not fit on center overhead compartment unless I put it side ways, which then takes up space for other passengers. Same carry-on suitcase fit nicely on Emirates airplanes. Basically, carry-on overhead compartments have been made smaller on purpose or by engineering error, and this makes me not want to fly Qatar airlines again. Less food options. I went to the Gally and they only had kitkat bars for food. Emirates offer fruit, sandwiches, and many choices at ALL TIMES of the flight for economy class."
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "I was not given any option regarding the change of my departure flight from Colombo. Originally it was scheduled for 13th 3.25AM and it was brought forward to 12th night 20.20. This caused inconvenience to me and my family to wait 7 hours for the connecting flight to Johannesburg from Doha. When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."
Pros: "The service was impeccable, flights on time and the transfer easy!"
Cons: "There were no food choice when the cabin crew reach my seat all run out"
Pros: "I havn't flown a lot of international flights, but Qatar Airways is now my favorite"
Pros: "Thank you to wonderful hard working Crew."
Cons: "I am a lacto ovo vegitarian. The meal was just vegitarian. I would have like to have an ice cream or a piece of cake."
Pros: "Flight was on time and departed as scheduled. Flight was comfortable and seats were decent. Would have liked a little bigger seats and more legroom in the economy seats"
Cons: "Food was not up to par and seats could have been a bit bigger for the economy bracket."
Pros: "If we had arrived on time everything would have been perfect. However I did not arrive in Johannesburg because a flight delay (even though our flight was set to let ontime) caused probably 40 people to miss their connections. To their credit, Qatar Airways did find accommodations for us and gave us food vouchers. Otherwise it'd be a zero rating."
Cons: "Boarding took far too long and caused us to be an hour late. Because of this, I am missing out on events scheduled in South Africa. This is very upsetting and it appears that Qatar Airways is too slow with boarding, there was no explanation given for why it took so incredibly long to board."
Pros: "attentive crew food was good"
Cons: "old entertainment options little space to move about"
Pros: "The staff was very accommodating and were able to provide me a seat with more leg room last minute."
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Missed it because my flight from Colombo was delayed by 6 hrs."
Pros: "Left and arrived on time, meals were above expectations."
Cons: "Difficult boarding procedure."
Pros: "Like the friendly Crew ..."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work Boarding at Colombo air port is absolutely the worst We have seen. I have traveled a lot. Took 1 hr 30 mins to check in 40 people."
Pros: "The airplane was spacious."
Cons: "The omelette was too tough."
Pros: "The inflight entertainment didnt work at all. Food choice was pathetic."
Cons: "Food and inflight entertainment"
Pros: "Best airline in the sky"
Pros: "Very friendly crew and efficient check-in service. Food was lovely."
Cons: "Multiple problems with onboard entertainment re-setting itself."
Pros: "Good boarding. They do their best to make sure their passengers will be able to board the aircraft smoothly. Crew members are quite attentive and helpful."
Cons: "When making a review, I make comparisons with other airlines. I was expecting that Qatar Airways would be better than Emirates. It is my first time to fly Qatar airways, just to see if it's worth flying with this airline since it was the Best Airline in the world for 2015. But Emirates improved so much better that they overtaken the throne of Qatar Airways.. When you promise 5-star comfort and luxury, it should be what is promised.. Key points: 1.) Beverages should be served more than just twice during this 9 hour flight. It's a bit sarcastic that you flash a reminder on the screen that says "Keep Hydrated" but beverages were served only twice. I always had to ask for 2 glasses of water, overall 4 glasses of water on this 9 hour flight. And I can say that I got dehydrated. 2.) No hot towels for sanitary before food is served. I had to go to lavatory, wash my hands and put some alcohol before eating. Which is kinda hassle.. Sanitary is very important. 3.) I spent 8 hours layover in Doha before my flight to Milan. No complimentary meal. (Emirates provide complimentary meal if I have long layover in Dubai) 4.) I don't know if it's due to bad weather, but this flight, QR 933 was the roughest flight I have been on, not just short turbulence but long hours, maybe 3 hours. I was so dizzy and couldn't sleep. I signed up on privileged member club because I'm looking forward that Qatar would be the best choice for Airline. This review is just one of many reviews that should be looked at. Considering that you should continuously develop and aim to bounce back on the top. Do not settle for "okay", do not settle for second spot. Be the best, and compete for the first. Thank you for a safe flight. I'm looking forward for another flight with you. -Jerson Belir, first time flyer"
Pros: "Lots of leg space, good seats."
Cons: "Food could be better, much better."
Pros: "The food was great and so was the staff. The plane was clean and spacious."
Cons: "I had to have the same food in both flights"
Pros: "I usually don't need a lot in the flight, just to kill some time. With Qatar, it was easy, your own entertainment screen with a huge selection of content. Plus the seat was very comfortable and wide, a lot of leg space. New aircraft. what more can you ask?"
Cons: "Not sufficient food, less quantity or quality of food, cramped seat, there was a big guy sitting next to me, unable to even rest my hand"
Pros: "The food was fabulous and plentiful. We also took advantage of the free tour of Doha--a very pleasant way to spend a six-hour layover. Flight attendants were all very attentive and helpful."
Cons: "There was no boarding system, everyone just crowded the gate. Food was unappetizing at best. Colombo Qatar Airways staff at Colombo airport were not very helpful when trying to change details of my booking."
Pros: "Great food, comfortable new plans, great food, great crew"
Cons: "Boarding in Colombo was dire - they boarded the plane from the back, leaving Business Class passengers waiting in the hot, uncomfortable gate area until last"
Emirates didn't give hotel in Dubai, though our stay was more than 10 hours.
Pros: "Crew is professional, caring. Excellent experience"
Pros: "They were very supportive.. Thanks."

Pros: "Hotel stay on your long hold"
Cons: "Needs to improve in all sections"
Pros: "Crew was amazing really .. best crew you may have... sear very comfort, the ICE is very amusing"
Pros: "The crew was awesome, seating is never comfortable for a long flight."
Cons: "I do not recall any plane departing the dock on time. All Airlines need to work on boarding quicker and leaving on time."
Pros: "Was ok"
Cons: "Water bottle to all the passengers."
Pros: "Service & caring were superb"
Cons: "The snack was served not good and eatable. Emirates like one of leading air lines could have been served a better food. If it is cost cutting effort to serve a very basic snack like this, customers will be finding other air lines in the future."
Pros: "Ease of boarding, tasty food, and plenty of entertainment."
Pros: "Emirates has great programming and the TV screens are the best I've experienced among airlines. LOTS of choices, great sound, screens not to dark like many on US-based carriers and GREAT Headphones."
Cons: "Restrooms, even before flight took off, smelled of urine like they had not been cleaned. Lines to use them were very long. Leg room SUCKED (and I am not a big person).....maybe 30-31 inches, but my knees were banging up against the seat in front of me!!! I booked this ticket thinking that economy would have more room than US-based carriers and it did not. It did not help to have a very large man spilling over into my seat from the middle seat (although he was very nice....still resent paying for a seat I don't have full "bandwidth" for),"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Before I start my complaint I would like to say that my family and I had 6 emirates flights this year and 5 of those flights were very good and we thoroughly enjoyed our traveling with emirates but this 1 flight came out to be the worst flight of my life. I made online check-in and chose our seats and all was successful but when we reached the airport and I opened my app, it displayed that online boarding pass was not available. After moving slowly in a long queue, when I reached near boarding counters, an official checked my name in a list and informed that there was some new tax applied on us and thus I had to visit counter 5 or 6 to pay that tax. We joined the queue of counter 5 but it was not moving at all and I noticed some people being served at counter 5 who were not in the queue, thinking that counter 5 might take longer, I joined counter 6 queue where there were only 1 family and 1 passenger ahead of me, for next half hour we stood there but that queue didn't move. Finally after some time another counter called me, he confirmed that I had made online check-in. We were given boarding passes and were asked to wait for tax processing, After another 15min, we were given all papers and were requested to move to the immigration counter. After immigration when we were going through final security check, the emirates official asked me to hurry up, I showed him that the security process was going on in front of him, upon that he asked why I was late to airport, I informed him that I made online check-in and I was required to be there 90min before the flight but I was there 150min before the flight and it was in front of him how long the tax processing took, upon that he said that I should have been at the boarding counter 240min before the flight and that I should be aware of the facilities at the airport (although it was my 1st time there). I had not made any complaint on what had happened so far to anyone and I was not rude to anyone although I was with my wife and 1.5 years old son who was crying coz of warn weather and thirst, we couldn't provide him with water coz we were standing in queues all the time. But hearing such comments from Emirates official were quite unbearable but still I stayed calm and reached at the gate. When I handed over the boarding passes, I was told that my boarding pass was missing and I was quickly blamed by emirates officials that either I reached there without a boarding pass or I had lost it. When they checked in their system it showed that I was already boarded, I understood that they gave my boarding pass to someone else but they kept on saying that I had lost it and also informed the same to plane crew, then they made a manual boarding pass for me and let me pass the gate. We were the last passengers to enter the plane. When I reached at my seat, there was someone else sitting there, upon taking attendant's help, it was discovered that the passenger sitting there had my boarding pass."
Pros: "Love the outfits the flight attendants wear Love the attention they give to all ...and basically everything else was above GOOD"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was a crabby lady sitting behind me on my way to Dubai the end of October who objected to me reclining my seat ..meanwhile, she had hers reclined! But I didn't consider it important enough to complain."
Cons: "By the time the food cart reaches rear zones , there are not much left to choose from. It should be better managed so all passengers have a chance to pick the food of their choice."
Pros: "Good leg-room."
Cons: "Crew do not seem to be attentive."
Pros: "Professionalism of flight and ground crew. Movie & entertainment selection. Overall cleanliness of aircraft. Better comfort due to wider seating."

Pros: "Service and Wi-Fi"
Cons: "Brussel sprouts were total mush"
Cons: "No food choices Food is bad No differentiation from other airlines Level was better years ago"
Pros: "I flew round trip on their flagship Airbus 380 from Toronto to Dubai, about 13-14 hours. Crew was great, plenty of food and drinks, about 3x meals, lost track of how many drink runs, maybe 5x. It was almost too much food & drink! The in-flight entertainment was great, touch screen was fantastic, USB port, even power outlet, on back of seat, plenty of entertainment choices from movies, to video games, to trivia, I even got a kick out of all the camera's mounted on the outside of the plane with all the flight tracking details available on screen, plenty of bathrooms. Its such a big plane it didn't even feel like you are flying. I'm 6'4" so I always choose an aisle seat so i can at least stretch one leg out, the crew was even mindful not to bump my elbow or even my leg when it was extended out into the aisle while i was asleep...which was more than accommodating to something I shouldn't have been doing! Overall Excellent, I wish every airline was like Emirates. They're bringing back the old school service and class airlines used to be like. I know people don't dress up while they air travel anymore, but I'll be dressing up the next time I fly Emirates! ;)"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."
Pros: "Seat was really comfortable and leg room was excellent. In flight entertainment will keep you busy."
Cons: "Nothing. Emirates are the best!"
Cons: "The A/C was on full blast. Before take off the flight attendant took away my pillow from my lap?? No blanke was provided upon asking and my pillow was noy returned either. Considering this flight took off from CMB at 3:00 AM, both items would have been a great help. I skipped my meal."
Pros: "Pretty mjuch ebverything except.."
Cons: "My boarding pass for second leg was not given in Colombo but in Dubai.. by then I didn't get an aisle seat."
Pros: "very comprehensive entertainment system"

Cons: "First off, if im buying a ticket and traveling by myself and have an overnight 11hrs and 35min layover i expected some sort of accommodation given that the Maldivian airport is an outside one. Not only did they (Maldivian Emirates counter officer Ibrahim Shinad) refused to give me a lounge they said to get a room at a hotel was $400 US! Which is absurd. I had to sleep on metal chairs. They also closed most shops by 12am and by the time we landed and went through checkin it was 1130. Not a pleasant experience at all."

The service is good and the flights are always in time and well clean. There ia flat seats between Doha to Colombo and from there to Kerala is normal flight but its fine.

Pros: "Staff kept us informed and it almost boarded at the expected reschedule time. I did not go to the lounge at first, the monitor was flashing "last call" 3+ hour before we finally boarded. SriLankan staff sent me to the lounge and treated me very well. The 2nd leg was badly delayed and poorly handled for most passengers."

Cons: "Unfortunately, I often have a short connection time in Colombo and have missed the connecting flight to Bangkok several times due to the plane leaving late from Kuwait. I'm not sure that this is an airline issue and is most likely due to the ground crews in Kuwait..."
My wife and I did not get food. There was no chicken left and we can’t eat pork so we didn’t get food. Crew member didn’t ask ask first but left the pork in our table and after I asked him what it was told that was only pork left I asked him to take back. The only thing we can’t eat is pork and that was the only option. I was shocked for a long flight not to have enough food. Crew member never came back to let us that there is no other food available. After we asked and other crew member he checked and confirmed there is no other food. He offered to share his own meal with my wife and I but we refused but we appreciated that. I hope I never have an other experience like that. It wasn’t a good experience. :(
I am seeking a refund from Kayak as LOT refuses to acknowledge the booking when not done directly from their site. Worst experience with an airline ever.
Pros: "Finally good seats"
Pros: "Crew was fine."
Cons: "Paid for business class on LOT. Somehow this was delivered on a low cost carrier. Not the same business class product at all, ancient plane, worn seats though they claim to be "new" on this 767. Multiple hours delayed departing, no reason given, and no updates, we just sat there for hours. I assume mechanical. Caused me to miss my connection and here I am having to pay huge for a last minute hotel. Not what was advertised to me which was a LOT flight not a codeshare on an old plane. Booked it through Kayak, will not be doing THAT again."
Pros: "The variety of entertainment was enjoyable throughout the cruise. Food was nice"

Pros: "I loved food and entertainment: they had a lot of alternative film offers (not just same old hollywood, but Korean or Russian films, etc.). We arrived 30 min ahead of schedule too!"

Pros: "good entertainment choices"
Cons: "my pre-arranged seat was changed without notice."
Cons: "I had requested a wheelchair upon arrival in Warsaw and in Toronto but it was not provided."
Pros: "Food was good"

Pros: "The crew was fine and polite, the plane made on time despite 40min delays on the tarmac"
Cons: "going through Warsaw border control took forever, long lines, bad set up for transit passengers."
Cons: "Poor quality of announcements in Warsaw for boarding times."
Cons: "Toronto airport disappointing. We arrived one hour esrly, but the gate the toronto airport told us to go to was broken so we had to wait for over one hour on the plane. Then the plane was moved aside and we walked to the bus that drove us to the airport. No luggage information given airport Toronto"
Cons: "Very poor English for rhe crew. Not all of us speak Polish. Unpleasant crew, like they are doing you a favor."
Cons: "They keep the cabin too hot! I was uncomfortably warm for the entire 9hr flight. And there were no personal airvents to mitigate this problem."
Pros: "The new release movies included in the entertainment system were relatively new but not very many System had to reboot a couple of times Food and drinks were par with the industry standards nowadays"

Pros: "Good service. Food is provided (one hot meal and one sandwich). Selection of entertainment (movies, TV shows...etc) are good."

Pros: "Food/drink options"

Pros: "Everything was OK exept few things"
Cons: "When plane from Vilnius to Warsaw landed, passengers had to wait for 20 min. inside a plane for a bus. When bus arrived I had only 20 min. remaining till my connecting flight to Toronto.I managed to run to the right gate in time. But when I asked LOT employees to insure that my luggage is on a plane to Toronto too, I received arrogant answer that I have nothing to worry about... In Toronto I found out that there was no my luggage on the plane..."
Pros: "30 minutes late on boarding. No communication for reasons"
Pros: "The Dreamliner is shiny new and comfortable. Good authentic Polish food. Great variety of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "On-time performance was so-so, take-off was delayed ~1hr because of connections, had to wait on the runway at the destination airport, had to wait an eternity for my bag. Whatever genius who designed the in-flight entertainment controls should be punched in the face. The on-screen buttons are so easily pushed by passengers making their way to and from the aisle that passenger assistance and reading lights always go off on their own throughout the aircraft."
Pros: "Courteous, knowledgeable and professional crew. Fast boarding. Direct flight."
Cons: "No wifi. Little room if person sitting in front leans back."
Cons: "I bought my inlaws tickets with a shorter layover and it was horrible. It took them ‘much longer to get home. There was no plane waiting for them in Budapest and they got re-routed to Vienna. Which then took them to krakow. They had to take off their luggage everytime they got off the plane and they are 80 years old. There were no escalators or elevators. The airlines lost one of their suitcases and promised it the next day and they have not received it yet. Horrible flight."
Pros: "Everything was excellent with my flight!Flight crew was very polite and excused about delay.Delay was 30 minut,wich is ok.They helped everyone,who needed help.Food was nice,seats are comfortable.Thanks for everything!"
Pros: "Arrived to Toronto on time. Flight attendants provided excellent customer service."
Cons: "Nothing to mention."
Pros: "Could check my suitcase earlier (arrived at airport too early). I had a bit off over 23 kg but that did not pose any problem. Boarding was quiet fast and almost with timetable. The food was good and service provided pleasant. I was happy that we landed safely providing bad weather in Toronto that evening."
Pros: "Good seat that becomes a bed. A little short and narrow for me, but about 5000 orders of magnitude better than the seats in the economy torture chamber."
Pros: "crew was very good and friendly"
Cons: "vegetarian meal contained no protein"
Pros: "This time I found an ail place"
Pros: "Excellent service better than expected accommodations. On time."
Cons: "Very unpleasant and unhelpful staff (apart from the ones in-flight)"
Pros: "Movie selection was decent as well as the service - the crew was more or less nice and professional with me."
Cons: "The fact that we took off 1 hour late and no apologies have been given. No drink service ha been provided while everyone was just sitting there and waiting for takeoff. Normally the plane would catch up the 1 hr delay but not this time. We arrived 1 hour late."
Cons: "It's nice when an airline overbooks a flight."
Pros: "The actual flight was fine. The food was decent. The entertainment selection was good. The flight attendants were pleasant. We got plenty to eat and drink."
Cons: "We found out in Poland that my wife was missing an eTA number necessary for her to fly into Canada. With our previous flight delayed, the application did not process in time, and we missed our connecting flight. As a result, we were stuck in Poland for 24 hours, leading to lost sleep, added expense, and much frustration. Customer service in Poland was helpful but extremely slow. Many customers needed help and it took about an hour for each customer. We waited in line for hours. We were not charged for a new flight, but we did spend 10 exhausting hours in the airport before we had everything resolved and were able to leave and get a few hours of sleep."
Pros: "I like the food. Cabbage rolls on our wat back from Warsaw were unexpected. Such an excellent idea to serve Polish meals on the polish airline."
Pros: "LAX - Warshaw rotation looks underutilized, so should be easier to find cheap biz fare or get an upgrade. The 787 is a spacious plane up front, but LOT uses the traditional 2-2-2 layout with no direct aisle access from window. Also means you're still sleeping close and next to a total stranger. I don't know, I've so gotten used to Delta's biz layout with their direct aisle access and no touch points to a fellow traveller, I don't think I can look at anything more traditional as not a compromise and downgrade."
Pros: "The flight was smoothe"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess and is always a mess"
Pros: "Nice new plane (Dreamliner) with a lot of overhead space for hand luggage."
Cons: "There is less leg room than on other international carriers. I am tall and found it quite uncomfortable. I was also surprised by how bad the food was - worst airline food I have ever had on both trips. Sadly, also the most unfriendly air crew as well. Also, unlike international flights with Air Canada, you have to pay for alcohol (though the prices are pretty good)."
Pros: "The entertainment on the plane was great. Large selection of movies, music, and TV shows to keep yourself entertained. The dinner was adequate. It was also nice having the overhead screens continually update our flight progress."
Cons: "The seats are incredibly cramped, by the end I was feeling seriously claustrophobic. It didn't help that we left late. The boarding process was a mess, nobody seemed to know what to do, and the announcements were all mumbled to the point where I was just guessing what to do. The second meal served was inedible as the bread was completely stale. Also, one of the toilets was broken and kept flushing, even when sitting on it. Like the boarding process, disembarking was sloppy and confusing. It took a very long time to open the door, and they only told people at the last minute that they needed to get their passports out."
Pros: "Very helpful staff during boarding very good dinner"
Cons: "breakfast meal - very dry sandwich with only one slice of cheese no internet access during flight inability to use headphones during take off and landing"
Pros: "The 787 Dreamliner was nice, and the business class seats are roomy. And the ticket was priced right!"
Cons: "They lost my luggage in the outbound direction and no-one appeared to care. When I called the number that they provided frequently no-one answered. Even when I finally got through, no-one could provide me ANY information as to the whereabouts of my bag. It finally showed up on the last day of my stay, but it was delivered to another hotel (which I only figured out after about 10 phone calls). Also, they offer perhaps the worst in-flight video selection I have ever seen."
Pros: "Complementary headphones, drinks, and snacks. I flew economy as as a 6'3" guy I was generally comfortable -- though I would recommend you sit in the aisle seat. Food wasn't the worst."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "nice plane"
Cons: "entertainment system did not work properly,food was worse than fast food,cabin crew was average at best."
Pros: "Got us home to Toronto from Warsaw in one piece and affordable."
Cons: "food was too simple. "Dinner" was so poor after 6 or 7 hours, we only received half a sandwich and a dessert. The seats did not give us a lot of movement. My husband could not even put down his tray table because woman in front pushed her chair back. In general, there was not a lot of English speaking from the stewardesses. Very strong Polish accents made it very hard to understand what they said on the speaker. Not too many choices of English movies."
Probably not the airlines fault but covid regulations for boarding and deboarding the plane were completely different. Not sure if covid boarded the plane mid-flight.
Pros: "Crew amazing yes. Seat comfortable."
Cons: "None for now!"
Pros: "The crew were all nice."
Cons: "Aircraft VERY aged--NO charging ports?! Entertainment screens tiny and old touch screen interface, slow to respond. Remote control on arm rest=accidental volume changes and such. Do NOT get the veggie pasta, it's terrible. Overhead bins do not hold large bags correctly."
Pros: "Perfect flight"
Cons: "Been perfect"
Pros: "The crew was super nice."
Pros: "everything worked fine"
Pros: "Everyone on the team clearly showed up to work making every effort to do their best for the passengers. British Airways is serious about being a top choice Cartier, regardless of class of service and it shows in management, terminal care, operations and amenities and each aspect of the flight."
Cons: "The food was the least positive aspect, but still much better than most. The pacing of beverage, snacks and meals was well coordinated."
Pros: "Tight in ecomony. Aisle seats are bad I was hit the entire flight."
Cons: "Seats not the best"
Cons: "Flight was diverted for 4 hours due to thunderstorm in Toronto"
Pros: "The flight was delayed prior to leaving the gate, while lined up to take off and during the flight. All delays were promptly explained by members of the flight deck. The cabin crew were outstanding nothing seemed to be too much of a inconvenience to them."
Pros: "Plenty food. Very well looked after by the crew. Lots of good movies."
Cons: "Some of the screens had a scratches on them."
Pros: "Food and service great"
Pros: "British Airways has definitely got their act together it was a brilliant flight and the service was excellent it was a pleasure to see."
Pros: "Waitied.. in the okanevdir 40 minutes! Because couldn’t get the jolly to work for the steps Had to walk steps with my elderly mother with our carry on in the pouring rain.. then miss our flight to Milan had to wait 3 hours for the next flight ... which was also delayed."
Pros: "The flight from SFO to London was excelent. Espessialy crew members who Were very caring and helpfull and really nice. The food was very good, as well as entertainment choices. The flight from London to Madrid was ok. The flight was delayed but the captain kept us updated. We were comfortable waiting on the plane. The were no food (only for purchase) nor entertaiment on board, not actually needed since its a short flight. The crew presense was almost non-existent. They were staying or sitting there but, for example, didnt try to help family with crying little son. Im sure that crew ladies from sfo/madrid flight would do. Overall very pleasant experience."
Pros: "food was excellent ... service is always top notch"
Pros: "Mediocre experience on the ground; much better in the air -- competent, pleasant cabin crew."
Cons: "It seems amazing to me that BA will leave 50 First and Business Class passengers standing in line while they pre-board "families with young children". Some of the families had children who were 7 or 8 years old and certainly had no need for pre-boarding; its just an opportunistic way of jumping the queue. Similarly, some of the "elderly" passengers who claim to need pre-boarding on departure spring to their feet and dash down the aisle on arrival. Air Canada boards Business Class first on this same route; I'm going to migrate back to them, as virtually everything else on the two flights is comparable."
Pros: "Only wish they would've put me on the direct flight"
Cons: "The transfer was a pain. Signage at Toronto Airport is non existent. I had to stop and ask people which way to go 3 times"
Pros: "Food, Movies Staff Treatment Aircraft: B787...quiet, new and clean Heathrow Terminal 5"
Pros: "My original flight to Bologna was cancelled and was rebooked on a flight after 12 hours! The only good was that the rebooked flight took off on time"
Cons: "Flight was chaotic! No room for hand luggage. When they sell hand luggage only tickets then why not provide the space!! Banged up old aircrafts. The food selection from their “M&S” menu was limited, had nothing veg on board"
Pros: "The stewardesses were helpful and friendly."
Cons: "The actual food etc offered on board is horrible.BA does not know where to cut more in their services. They offer you a drink once the whole flight! Washington to London. Supper was half burned lasagna; you’d think they cannot go lower than that. Wait for your breakfast: a cereal bar. Very classy! We had tail wind so we made good time on the flight only to have to circle London around for 30 minuets. This would not have been a problem, however there was such turbulence that you could hear people throwing up! Great end to a transatlantic flight! I barely made it through it myself."
Pros: "Ontime, no nonsense flight"
Cons: "Sadly disappointed that drinks (even soda) are no longer free!"
Pros: "Care taken of passengers on trip from London to Boston was excellent amenities were what I have come to expect from BA."
Cons: "Trip from Boston to London lacked amenities and service"
Pros: "Very good Premium Economy service. Comfortable seats and good food."
Cons: "Noise (crying babies) from the Economy section. Delay in departure."
Pros: "In flight entertainment and meals were great. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Very crowded and difficult to move. Also, would have liked more water service - had to go ask for water a few times since service was not offered regularly."
Cons: "Couldn't take the flight because I was not allowed to check a bag. No mention of this was made when I booked."
Pros: "Good documentary films to choose from to pass time."
Cons: "I paid money when I requested seat assignment online. I’m not sure what I paid for as our seats were standard."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and roomy."
Pros: "Nothing. British Airways refused to help us"
Cons: "Took over two hours on the phone to try and get rebooked. Missed the last flight out of the night due to incompetence. British Airways desk check in staff was so rude, wouldn't even talk to us. Thank goodness for the helpful Air Canada grind crew in Toronto."
Pros: "Flew with partner Aer Lingus. Extremely comfortable, good food, good entertainment, great crew."
Pros: "Smooth and uneventful flight on a 747 Staff looked very smart and were efficient"
Cons: "Check in queue, queue at gate, seat was not clean, food poor The World's favourite airline is becoming impersonal"
Pros: "First international flight. Did not know you are treated so well."
Cons: "That i am not able to sleep pn night flights. Not a problem of the airlines.Gail"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Seats not comfortable"
Pros: "crew was very welcoming which made our journey very comfortable"
Pros: "great service - flight was smooth takeoff and landing"
Pros: "My screen worked and there was a good selection of movies. I also had a window seat which was great. Any seat except the middle, is always great."
Cons: "No vegetarian options."
Pros: "Even flight was delayed, all was well with excellent service."
Cons: "The ticket was 3,000 dollars and the service was worse than usual"
Pros: "Fabulous experience on every level"
Pros: "That you could watch movies and shows from the headrest, very helpful to pass the time. They fed us a lot (very salty) and were very nice."
Cons: "I was in the back in the cheap seats (row 50) with a friend, we are both small to regular size and the guy seated in the aisle seat was very small and it was still difficult to get up and around each other to use the restroom. Oh well I paid $462 for round trip and arrived safely, that's what matters most."
Pros: "I got upgraded which was a huge bonus and the staff were great and attentive."
Pros: "Food was ok - rest was terrible."
Cons: "Boarding was troublesome due to the fact the person made an error and changed my seat that I had already reserved. I noticed this while walking to the gate and then informed the person at the desk. After some time they determined the error happened at check in and she then returned me to the original booked seat. While in the flight, the lady behind me kept kicking my seat and complaining that I should not have the seat leaning back. Of course this is a fully acceptable function of flying in that the seat can be tilted back when not having food - the crew did not help at all and I was forced to fly the whole time with soon being rude behind me."
Pros: "Great meal service and goodies. Great entertainment, service. I think BA is the best airline to fly"
Cons: "I liked everything!"
Pros: "The best the crew"
Cons: "The airbus plane. The seats are the smaller I've seen. Boarding is not very well organized. Pleople should be online and not all together at the door pushing."
