Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Pumpkin soup instead of a heavy entree was welcome and tasty. Breakfast yogurt portion was generous, the granola less so. Accompaniments were good. Butter was not ice cold, thank goodness."

Cons: "Boarding was confusing and disorganized"
Pros: "The aircraft felt clean and quite spacious (decent legroom). Cabin crew was friendly and everything went as expected. Bonus points for the Beemster cheese sandwich (I was totally disappointed when they served the food, but more than pleasantly surprised by the quality of the cheese - I even bought some afterwards, from the Albert Heijn just outside the security area)."
Cons: "Very odd queue separation at boarding. Passengers were divided in 5 lanes, depending on their seating area withing the plane (for a more efficient boarding, I presume) but, by the time we all got to the actual aircraft, we formed another queue in the boarding bridge so it didn't feel like any time was saved or anything."

The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again."
Pros: "Staff both at the airport and in the plane were professional and welcoming. Depsite short distance sandwich and drink were offered."

Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Enough space good wine and on time"
Cons: "Great airline. Clean, friendly staff good food and entertainment."
Pros: "Given that this flight, like just about every other BA9 flight for the past week, was a delayed departure, this flight delayed 3 hours, it is difficult to say that this was a good flight. The flight was full, and some business class passengers moved to economy class, with some economy passengers being removed from the flight to free up essential "rest areas" for the crew."
Cons: "Whilst I understand that the planes make no money sitting on the tarmac, maybe the schedule needs tweaking to permit a little more time for maintenance?"
Pros: "The seat was awful. Narrow with little leg room , hard on the backside, minimal recline."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Service and food"

Pros: "Original timing"
Cons: "Boarding was a chaotic affair. Landed late but no mention of apology. Disappointed."
Pros: "The crew are working really hard to make do with what they have. Exceptional service almost makes up for the dated fleet."
Cons: "Tiny entertainment screens, no USB, really BA- how long will you keep running these 777’s for?"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Being delayed for 2.5 hours wasn’t pleasant. Once we finally boarded the crew members did apologise in person to all first class customers. I was sitting with my granddaughter right behind it. We felt like a second category customers.... nothing to add to it it shows it all"
Pros: "the plane landed safely"
Cons: "a lot of confusion between in flight staff and ground staff as to where to go and what to do concerning transfers to ongoing flights, security, tight layover etc It was like it was everyones first day on the job."
Cons: "Plane was very old. Seat rock hard. When I pulled the foot rest down the fabric was coming off to reveal years worth of food crumbs. Disgusting. TV screen was tiny. Seemed sort of staff, took them ages to bring food around, toilet was unclean with no toilet roll towards the end of flight."
Pros: "A more organized boarding. There was no one to assist when we arrived at the airport to check in and no one to guide us as to which line to go to when boarding. It is difficult being organized on our own in an environment which include cultures lacking organization or being considerate. All food required purchase. No entertainment provided."
Cons: "Crew needs to be more educated regarding disabilities such as head injury. Recovering from a concussion obtained when a car hit me while I was walking, but still sensitive to things such as light and noise. When asked to open the shade while landing there was a hesitation but at least they allowed me to leave the shade down at my window for this portion of the flight."
Pros: "I was fasting for Ramadan so I didn’t try the food, the crew members were as nice as can be for BA"

Pros: "Have providee upstairs seat unfortunately need pay for it. Ice cream so delicious."
Cons: "Food. Uncomfortable seat for 11+hours flight."
Pros: "British airways have always been good and my best airline to fly."
Cons: "This occasion, the manager was So rude to me and even called me a liar in front of too many people. I don't speak or understand French and the woman really embarrassed my life. I checked-in online before I got to the airport and I mistakenly went to terminal 1 instead of terminal 2. So by the time I realised and got to terminal one, the baggage collection stand had closed because I was there by 15:18. To make the long story short, I got through the security where I was delayed for 20mins searching through my things and when I asked about time, the security said the flight won't leave with out me and they would inform them about the delay before I get to my departure gate. Anyway, I got to the gate with some time left and this extremely rude woman whom I was told is the manager insulted the living day light out of my life and turned me back. So I didn't fly with BA in the end. No matter the situation and despite me being late, I believe things would have been handled better. And even if the manager felt I was lying, she should have been more diplomatic about it and speak to me in a good manner. I won't be recommending flying BA from Nice to anyone. That woman was so hurrible, that experience haunts me psychologically."
Cons: "The crew had to do a hard reset of the entertainment system. Unfortunately it took more than 1.5 hours into the flights because the first reset did not work and the crew was busy with other things."
Pros: "Troy was very helpful and entertaining"
Cons: "No white wine"
Cons: "Late BA flight made sure I had to wait 7 hours to catch and EVA air flight. I want my money back. I paid 1000 to flight British Airways not to be crammed on a flight as a show away. Super uncomfortable seat on EVA and a terrible experience. I fell on the plane."
Pros: "Most things"
Cons: "Luggage took forever to be delivered in Newark--one of the longest waits I've ever experienced."
Pros: "The crew are always the bright spot on any BA flight."
Cons: "Entertainment system needs upgrading. Food just average. Seat comfort is better than before but still less comfortable than Asian carriers. Two drunken idiots spoiled a fair portion of the flight."
Cons: "That the plane ended up in budapest and not krakow with an overnight delay"
Cons: "Went through vayama, for this booking. Arrived for a 1:45 pm flight, which I had paperwork for. Jay Informed me, that a flight change to an am flight was emailed to me in December! No follow up email....say a week before?! Like all the other booking sites I use. Spent another night, in Ediinburgh, plus much money for new tickets. Two airport layovers. Will never go through this site again, rate it poorly and not recommend. Thanks, Vickie Varney"
Pros: "I like that I could book seats for my son and I in advance of check out We are both 6 foot 4 and leg room in Economy is tight I got us seat beside the emergency exit"
Cons: "I found the extra cost exorbitant - OK I did pay it but for the two od us it was much more than I expected"
Pros: "Overall flight better London to Beirut l"
Cons: "Long wait over"
Pros: "Communication regarding weather problems"
Cons: "My luggage arrived 3 days after I did. Communication between baggage delivery service and BA baggage reps terrible. BA baggage reps never told delivery service the hotel room I was at was registered under another name. BA baggage reps gave me miss information each time I spoke with them."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Not much space. Seats were too narow."
Pros: "The crew were very nice and helpful"
Cons: "The inflight entertainment system was at least 15 years old and it did not work in my seat despite numerous attempts to reset. As someone who cannot sleep on flights I was very uncomfortable and annoyed that I had to sit through 12 hours of flying with nothing to watch or listen to."
Cons: "Having to take a bus to get to the aeroplane"
Pros: "Thai airways much better"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "A few peoples televisions, including my own, just stopped working midway through the flight. The crew didn't offer us much to drink (like they didn't walk around offering water enough). Also paid extra for seating which we did not get the seats I paid for pretty sure."
Pros: "Honestly nothing"
Cons: "The whole flight was disastrous and we Are old gold card holders"
Cons: "1. Allowed us to book connection but time is limited. You need 5 hours layover to get to gates in London, every gates seem to be requiring to ride a bus. 2. We missed our connection and booked us to the next flight, waited 5 hours. 3. We were assigned to row 54, headache the whole trip, almost throw up at the end. 4. my daughter almost didn't eat because apparently only have chicken curry. My daughter is vegetarian."
Pros: "The seats are more comfortable than other low cost airlines. There is a bit more leg room. The crew are always friendly. We arrived earlier than the scheduled time."
Cons: "There was no in flight entertainment except a graphic showing how far we were progressing. Alas, paying for M&S food is not what I expect, that's EasyJet territory not British Airways."
Cons: "Flight delayed 1 hr resulting in my missing the connecting flight and an extra 12 hr wait at the airport, not a happy situation!"
Pros: "Not much to like. The crew was very good and flight was smooth."

Cons: "Not much space in the cabin. Plane was quite tired. Breakfast, as always, terrible."
Pros: "Nothing to say"
Cons: "When the ticket was issued it never said anything about who the subsidiary operating airline is. That caused so much confusion that I missed my flight despite of arriving at the airport almost 3 hours before departure. Then on my way back I asked for a tissue she threw one on the table with a snarl and said they are in the bathroom. Then the plane was standing still in the tarmac for good 10 minutes and I needed a tissue again - the same stewardess was extremely rude in telling me to go back to my seat - I advised her to be calm and speak appropriately. I was only trying to get the tissue paper from the toilet."
Cons: "Since you now have to pay for additional luggage, which I have always done in the past, I find it increasing infuriating that when boarding the plane to store my carry on luggage I have not been able to store this appropriately, I am led to believe as a paying customer I should not have to store my carry on luggage by my feet because the overhead cabin is not available to me. ."
