I'm flew Swiss for the first time and like it
Pros: "Great helpful flight crew"
Cons: "Checking our bag was a nightmare. All bag check-in was at kiosk which we couldn't use because we had to pay to check our bag. Had to find a desk in another terminal to check bag, then pay an another desk for said checked bag. We saved money by ticketing this way but we almost missed our flight"
Cons: "On time departure would be nice. Overall very pleasant experience. Water and Swiss chocolates were served during under an hour flight. Thank you Swiss!"
Pros: "Crew was attentive, video selection was very good"
Cons: "Seat cushion was very hard for 7 hour fight. Bring a pillow!"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful."
Pros: "Food, crew"
Cons: "Comfort seats"
Pros: "I was offered to check in my carry on, it was nice."
Cons: "I was told a wheel chair would be available to help me get to Terminal E in Zurich. I had literally TO RUN to catch my connecting flight to NYC since the chair was not their for me in Zurich. I almost missed my flight. I am a 79 years old woman. That was one terrible experience."
Pros: "On time and a lot more roomy then the flight from New York to Zürich"
Cons: "There were no TV screens to play games or watch shows"
Pros: "Loved the warm and very delicious quiche, thank you!"

Pros: "Very Pleasant Staff!"
Pros: "The TVs we’re newer and had a great entertainment selection available for a 12 hour flight"

Cons: "Sound quality for the films was awful"
Pros: "Also poor this airline is overpriced"
Cons: "Long disorganized boarding process Old airplane"
Pros: "Booked a flight to Europe. Online check in easy. Luggage dropoff at JFK had no line for online check in. Flight was on time, my luggage arrived in my final destination fine (had 1 transfer). Crew was efficient and attentive."
Cons: "Spaces for seats in the economy class are shrinking. With Swiss Air, seems more so as the seats recline quite a bit which is of course good for an 8-9 hours flight. However if the passenger in front of you reclines their seats, you absolutely are forced to recline yours immediately, otherwise no one will fit. Flight attendants have to ask passengers to put the seats back from reclining during meal service so people can open the food tray and are able to access it, that is how much the seats tilt."
Pros: "Short flight and they handed out chocolate"
Cons: "They announced that carry-on suitcases must be checked to accommodate a much smaller plane This only applied to those stupid enough (us) to comply"
Pros: "100% the best flight experience I've ever had flying. Wish I flew to Europe more so I could fly with Swiss more often. Thanks!"

Cons: "No complaints it was excellent"
Cons: "I bought economy class ticket! (I have a printout ticket as proof!) When I went to the airport i had a VERY UNPLEASANT surprise. I had a 23kg bag. Bording stuart said that my ticket is ECO LIGHT class and I don't have the right to any baggage. Worst thing of all was that the reason of my trip to Paris was my sister's graduation and half of the baggage was my formal wear and other half were presents for my sister! Your lack of transparency ruined one in lifetime special event- MY SISTER'S GRADUATION. I am very glad that you asked me for my opinion because I am using my free time to demand full refund, even tough the damage is much bigger than the cost of the ticket and it's irreplaceable."
Cons: "- late in arrival - 2h late in departure - lost my luggage"
Pros: "Overall good"

Pros: "They are the best airline flying to Boston."
Pros: "Fast journey despite a short delay it arrived on time."
Cons: "Felt a bit hectic on the plane, possibly due to other passengers being slow to board."

Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "My wife is strictly Hindu vegetarian. We had entered her food choice at Swiss web site months before. She didn't get the food while going to Zurich and coming back to Boston. She remained hungry both ways. Although we were in business class while coming."
Pros: "Professional polite crew."
Cons: "Seats too SMALL Food not eatable"

Pros: "Friendly crew and very professoinal"
Cons: "Old plane"
Pros: "Flight attendants were sympathetic"
Cons: "The first flight was cancelled after we sat on the plane for over an hour. We all had to wait in line at the transfer desk. Then our second flight attempt- boarding was awful, total chaos. The flight was delayed because boarding was so long. Then once we landed late, there was an issue deboarding the flight with the stairs and we were stuck for 40 mins for this process."
Cons: "Boarding procedure for business class with being held up in a small holding space"
Pros: "Crew was very kind and accommodating."
Cons: "I was unable to choose my seat online due to Swiss system issues and when I called, customer service was completely unhelpful despite the 25 minutes I had to wait for someone to answer."
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, and also very skilled so that their service was unobtrusive, graceful, and helpful. They took great care to get people what they wanted, and I saw them fulfill a few special requests from the people around me politely and quickly. The entertainment selections were good. The variety of interesting musical selections allowed me to go the whole flight without running down the battery on any of my own musical devices. The seat space was comfortable, especially compared to domestic flights I've taken for the last 10 years. The enforcement of carry-on luggage rules meant the overhead compartments were sufficient for what was brought aboard and people weren't filling the foot-space with bags."
Pros: "Short flight. Not much is expected. 3 stars for no rating, except comfort. Small seats/felt cramped. Not a huge deal since it's a short flight."
Cons: "No negatives or anything that caught me off guard."
Pros: "Everything! Great Flight attendants, good food. Drinks in economy class. First class treatment in economy. Plenty of entertainment options. We were fortunate to have a very clear air on our transatlantic flight. They did not turn on the seatbelt sign except to land."
Pros: "The staff were friendly and helpful, even more so as we traveled with two small kids. Very professional, high standards even for economy!"
Pros: "The food and staff were very good."
Cons: "You should board the plane from the back so people aren't climbing over each other. Paying to pick a seat is a huge turnoff. Economy very cramped. Lufthansa was better on that."
Pros: "Overall is perfect"
Cons: "Just to improve on the services and hospitality but there are really good"
Cons: "on time, but bad connection experience"
Pros: "Everything...the food was delicious, the staff was gracious and always went the extra mile."
Pros: "Staff was good"
Cons: "6 hrs delays"
Pros: "Nice seat, good choice of entrainment, great food"

Pros: "Crew and efficiency"
Cons: "Too hot in the plain"
Pros: "Planes are very clean, food is excellent, there is plenty of alcohol, and the crew treats economy passengers as if they were royalty. Flying attendants clean toilette each hour, There is also a flower pasted on the mirror in the toilette. All details of the flight have been take care of."
Cons: "1) The safety record is not superb https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkish_Airlines#Incidents_and_accidents 2) Political situation in Turkey is unstable. 3) Most of Europe is west of Istanbul - the flights to Europe are longer. BUT ANYWAY: THE AIRLINES ARE WORKING HARD TO OVERCOME ALL OBSTACLES AND PRICES ARE GREAT."
Cons: "Coffee ahould have been served sometime before landing and not in the middle of the flight when everyone was asleep. Entertainement options were practically zero"
Pros: "Crew attendance"
Cons: "No place for hand luggage"
Pros: "Food was good , enertainment and comfort was fine"
Cons: "The hostess was not friendly at all. Seemed to be inconvenienced by every request Also requested a veggie meal but was not avaible"
Pros: "Our Turkish Airlines flight was late boarding and passengers were upset about not being able to make their connecting flights. The crew handled it well, but anxiety was high. The food is always good and one of the reason I fly Turkish Airlines on a regular basis."
Cons: "Passport Control at Ataturk International was a nightmare with hundreds of people ahead of us in the queue. No Police to secure the area, so people rushed the line pushing us aside and jumped the queue, this happened repeatedly. I would advise people NOT to fly into this airport and expect to make your connecting flight, because it doesn't play out well at all. We were in line for 2 hours and witnessed people pushing, shoving, yelling at strangers and generally acting like animals. I found the whole experience highly disturbing."
Pros: "The flight was great and the service was wonderful. The plane was new and clean. A huge plus was the video entertainment in every seat along with headphones and USB Charging Port. They poured me a double Glenlivet scotch on the rocks at NO CHARGE!"
Cons: "I booked three round-trip tickets from LAX to Athens. Our daughter did not fly with us there but we checked with ticketing in LAX and they booked her seat anyway. The issue came when we tried to leave Athens the airlines then said that I had to purchase a one-way ticket! They informed me that the flight was cancelled for my daughter because she didn't fly to Athens. The ticket was almost $1,500.00 and I intend to get my money back but it was unfortunate that they had to charge me for it in the first place."
Pros: "Loved how friendly the staff was and wanted you to feel at home"
Cons: "Nothing out of the ordinary, seats can be a bit cramped but that can't be helped on a long flight"
Pros: "The flight took off and landed as scheduled. Boarding was quick and without any hassle. Food was served with in an effective way, and in a friendly manner. Food and drinks were of a good quality and passengers were taken into consideration. Thank you very much."
Cons: "I have nothing to complain about. I did not at any time feel disappointed about anything."
Pros: "service was excellent!"
Cons: "food wasn't enough or good"
Pros: "The staff from check in to on-plane service was very friendly and courteous and clearly did their best. The suppers were phenomenal! and the other meals were ok."
Cons: "The computers at the check in desk kept going down, but the staff handled this issue very well. The gates REALLY need a digital board that displays upcoming flights so that I can confirm I am at the right gate."
Pros: "Good entertainment, adequate comfort"
Cons: "Repetitive, intrusive, unsmiling screenings at Istanbul airport"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled ten days prior to departure. Nothing to do with weather. Without my permission they, booked my return flight with a 20 hour layover in Istanbul airport. I had to buy a new ticket home on a different airline. Waiting for a refund which currently seems impossible."
Pros: "Exceptionally nice crew, outstanding amenities, best food I've ever had on an airplane. I especially liked having the option of traditional Turkish fare."
Cons: "The boarding process could have been more organized. I had a business class ticket and could not find the priority boarding line. The first ground crew member I asked was abrupt and sent me to the back of the long line. I caught the attention of a different crew member and he motioned me to the front of the line--it was a little awkward saying "excuse me" to each person that I passed. (I am not used to being a priority passenger!) Once my documents were cleared and my carry-on was inspected at the gate, it was not clear whether to take a seat or to go somewhere else."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "My screen wasn't working"
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "The staff and crew were very helpful and provided excellent service throughout the experience. The food makes one rethink all the bad stereotypes of airlines food and one does. It go hungry."
Cons: "Wheelchair assistance is the worst when we fly with Turkish Airlines"
Cons: "Bad bad bad screens on such a long flight are a disgrace. Blurry and dark. Very old. I am a smiles and miles member and fly a lot THY but this was really bad."

Cons: "i didnt like the plane touchdown the ground and take off again that was so scary."
Pros: "I always enjoy flying with Turkish airlines because the service and care is exceptional !"
Pros: "on time, pleasant flight"
Cons: "no issues"
Pros: "My husband and I had a very average experience overall. From boarding to inflight customer service."
Cons: "We did not plan to check in any luggage since we had few connections, so we decide to take our rimowa luggage with us. So we were forced to check them in because it was only 8kg allow per passenger on carry on. So our luggage end up full of big dents, and scratches. We reported to the airlines and it was hard to justify what we were complaining about it. As a consumer were are very unsatisfied and unhappy. One of the worst experience in hospitality I have ever experience."
Pros: "Very professional, clean and excellent service, I will flight with them again"
Pros: "entertainment was excellent the crew was nice"
Cons: "teh landing was tough the boarding was late"
Pros: "The service was good."
Cons: "Unfortunately, I was rerouted and flew from Istanbul to Dushanbe. (instead of to Khujand) This meant that I needed to take a taxi 6 hours through the mountains to get to Khujand. I hope the flights to Khujand resume again shortly."
Pros: "The crew is wonderful, the food is very good for airline, and the flight was on time"
Cons: "Boarding a bit chaotic"
Cons: "Staff was a bit rude"
Cons: "First we did not Flight from Cairo to Istanbul because the trouble happened in Turkey I blame to KAYAK because they didn't followed up the situation and did not gave us any information also till now did not know if we flight or no that not good we tried to call the agent many time and they told us all thing is ok no change but when we review with Turkish airline the change the day and reserved in another AIRLINE Company Second : we had a one luggage was damaged from USA to CAIRO we did a report # CAI TK 56650 IN CAIRO AIRPORT but nothing happened and no one call us until now ,Please check and let us know what we can do Ehab Sargyous 409-719-2196"
Cons: "We landed into Ataturk airport while a coup was going on! And no one from Turkish Airlines was anywhere to be found for the next 16 hours."
Pros: "The flight was effective, on time, the service was very good. Good food"
Cons: "I couldn't understand the entertainment computer. I experienced a much more friendly one at different airlines, and they had a rich variety of content and games. Please also make sure that all staff is fluent with English - few of them seem either not to be communicative, or not confident to speak."
Seats way too small for a long flight .... food, just ok ... boarding somewhat disorganised.
The crew members were very rude. One of them literally pushed me and yelled at me for trying to get my baby's bear she forgot in her seat while exiting the plane. The food was very bad. Will never ever book with this airline again.
Barely let my wife and 2 children in. The check in lady said you have to arrive 4-5 hours before flight depature and almost did not let them fly. Thankfully another attendant helped out.
Austrian changed the times on the connections resulting in longer layovers. Old airplane not friendly service
Pros: "The crew was nice. The economy seating was sorta spacious, but then again, it was economy. I’m 6’2” and my knees didn’t hurt."
Cons: "It’s standard European airline. Don’t expect Cathay, Singapore or Emirates."
Pros: "Crew was polite and helpful"
Cons: "Long boarding time. Pasengers with huge bags as hand luggage. This should be controled."
Pros: "Rude inconsiderate staff. Terrible plane"
Cons: "The food was so cheap... pasta and a muffin. I’ll be looking around for another airline."
Pros: "Flight time was quite good"
Cons: "There was a 45 min departure delay and no announcements to us while waiting in the plane about it"
Pros: "Friendly crew with a wide range of entertainment options"
Cons: "Smoother boarding. Was great once on board."
Pros: "I liked that the airplane was newer and comfortable. The crew and food was ok."
Cons: "There was no entertainment unless you paid for it. We already pay enough for our tickets to fly and entertainment should be included and not another added expense, especially for families that already pay so much for their flights!"
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and professional Even got some sleep, not easy on economy seats but on this flight they were actually good."
Cons: "The other travelers were loud rude and didn't listen to instructions. Also clapping loudly upon landing and it's very annoying. Parents don't take responsibility for their children."
Cons: "They overbooked the flight which delayed boarding but the flight was on time."
Pros: "Very friendly and attentive flight crew, nice entertainment options, food good for airline food."
Cons: "Never been more uncomfortable in a plane seat. I’m six feet tall and my knees hit the back of the seat in front of me. I would not fly this airline again for this reason."
Pros: "Almost every thing was very good"
Cons: "My selection in pasta... was not bad but it was bit dry other than that no complains....thanks for save trip."
Cons: "I didn't like that I paid for a ticket months ago and checked in my bags and then was told that there's no room the plain is full"
Pros: "Flight schedule, boarding management"
Cons: "No WI-FI service during my return flight, limited options for tv news programs."
Pros: "Austrian Airlines does it right— service, food, cleanliness. This was a really terrific experience. They even boarded efficiently, having those with seats in the back board first."
Cons: "This was a great flying experience."
Cons: "arogant staff, flight canceled, great difficulties to claim my money back"
Pros: "Crew only offered water once during the whole night flight. The entertainment programs regarding games was very restricted, both in terms of game offers as well as operation / handling"
Cons: "I remember a time when these flights had entertainment on them..."
Cons: "The airplane came late, delaying our trip. Despite that, the luggage would not come, and the claims office was ridiculous (despite of the destination being within 1 hour of drive from the airport, it took us 24 hours of our short vacation trip to deal with luggage). It seems that LH has these problems regularly, and they don't seem to care; I guess we'll have to try someone else to avoid suffering the same problem every time. The employees already knew the luggages are in a mess, and so were the claims. When taking LH, we have to accommodate luggage delay into our planning."
Pros: "Nothing stood out compared to other airlines"
Pros: "smooth flight, friendly crew"
Pros: "Absolutely nothin Airlines was courteous enough to provide hotel which was just abt ok"
Cons: "Reschedulle of my journey to next day, everything tat followed"
Pros: "The air crew service"
Cons: "1. No option to pay for a second luggage; the company website very unclear about the luggage policy; no contact information as well as no web payment service; days before my flight, spent a lot of time and efforts to know that I could pay for a second luggage at the airport on my departure; 2. Paid $120 or so for the second luggage!!!??? After decades flying Austrian I will try switching to your competitors."
Cons: "Our flights there were postponed causing us to miss out connecting flights, we rescheduled with a different airline. The same thing happened coming home. Austrian was a complete disappointment going there and back."
Pros: "It's just normal seats with the middle seat blocked for Business class. It's not a true Business class seat by any definition. There is no entertainment system for this flight. I would choose to fly economy for this leg, if given the option as there is no added value to the Business class."
Pros: "The flight was nowhere near full, which was terrific. The crew were excellent, polite and attentive. Everything was on time."
Cons: "I don't remember anything about the food."
Pros: "The crew were very kind. The food was good."
Cons: "The space between the seats is very narrow and there is no entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, as is always true with both Austrian Airlines and Lufthansa."
Cons: "Very confusing boarding procedures. In Vienna they would check you at the gate to make sure you are in but keep you standing for a long time. I am not sure what happened but food was barely edible: breakfast eggs were like rubber and Lunch was served with a tiny sandwich. For a 10 hour flight it was not even sufficient"
Pros: "Staff, seats (exit)"
Cons: "No screen,no entertainment, the food was very bad even for airlines food, for a 4 hours flight cancel the food and make a cheaper flight."
Pros: "Plenty of food and drinks, pleasant crew"
Cons: "Please change food, enough of pasta every time."
Cons: "I reached out several times to the airline and nobody returned my calls or answered the phone. I needed to switch my flight/get a refund and was unable to reach them"
Cons: "Delay of 1 hour on a flight of 1 hour during lunch time and neither a snack during the flight."
Pros: "The plane itself was ok, the food also was ok."
Cons: "As usual, boarding in Miami airport is awful which is not exactly coming from austrian airlines, but they also took part in the unpleasant experience. The announcements were badly articulated, the boarding time was delayed and so on. Onboard, part of the crew completely refused to speak english."
Cons: "if you sit in the rear part of the aircraft no menu no food options for you they give you what have left."
Pros: "The crew worked so hard and were always ready to do more for any problem that arose, be it, mothers with babies, the elderly and infirm, the less than gracious occasional passenger, or younger children. The entertaining things on the individual screens also helped make the long periods of sitting more manageable for young and old."
Cons: "I didn't like how the passengers in general, left the cabin of the plane in such a mess! The crew came through several times for refuse, so I couldn't understand. Leaving pillows and blankets should be the only thing to clear out. Maybe a note on the TV screen could say, "a tidy plane helps flights be on time :-)""
Cons: "Our baggage did not make it to our final destination"
Cons: "Been traveling with Auystrian for a while now and so far so good, I'm very satisfied"
Cons: "They could not issue boarding pass for the all the segments of the travel. The agent had to talk to someone in order to even issue the boarding pass and even though the bags were checked in all the way to Pittsburgh boarding passes were not issued. I cannot blame the agent because Luftansa had issued the ticket for this Austrian Airline flight."
Cons: "The Air France flight was good overall. The food was okay, comfort good, boarding good, crew excellent."
They ask for electronic vaccination status to be downloaded but then they ask to see it again!!! Whats the point of downloading?? Also economy class was allowed to board through business and were not told to go to a different line
So now even with a 200€ flight you get only water and a piece of chocolate, no more food. Aircraft was 30 minutes late and no information on connection flights.
Deplaning by row groups due to covid was a joke - we were then crammed into a bus to the Munich intl terminal. Wifi did not work at all on the 9 hr flight.

Cons: "Seat hard. Space tight. I am 6’4”"

Pros: "The crew was the best"
Cons: "Not much legroom and no tv’s on a 10-hour flight"
Pros: "a320 was comfortable"
Pros: "We had a Lufthansa pilot sitting with us on his was back to Frankfurt. He was definitely good company and taught us a lot about how the airline worked, his family's history working with airlines, and life stories. The flight definitely went fast thanks to Daniel!"
Cons: "I was sick so couldn’t fly, spoke to customer care and they refused to let me change my flight"
Pros: "Reasonably comfortable seat"
Cons: "The flights was considerably delayed, due to Lufthansa's operation issues. Information provided at the terminal was nearly non existent and the posted information on the extent of the delay was inaccurate and not updated. All in all, not effective and non communicative handling."

Pros: "Luggage space, comfortable seat.. huge plane"

Cons: "Departing the plane into steps to z bus carrying heavy bags with no help."
Pros: "Short flight but staff very attentive, food good."
Cons: "We were put on standby. We expected our names to be called for seat assignments but we didn’t expect we could just swipe our boarding pass and our seat assignment would show. It’s a nice feature but I didn’t like that it wasn’t clearly explained to us."
Pros: "Staff tried hard to serve food"
Cons: "Very stinky person sitting in front of me and because there is no air jets to regulate had to breath 9 hours of stinky armpits Stayed 20 min on the plane or more waiting until gate would open."
Cons: "We missed our flight bc our luggage was stuck on the plane for 1.5 hours and we missed our connection. After running around the airport, waiting on the phone for over 2 hours and in line for 45 minutes, we are booked on a later flight and hope to get home tonight."
Pros: "See previous comments"
Pros: "One of flight attendants lent me her phone charger to charge my phone which absolutely saved and they were just generally very pleasant and easy to interact with."
Pros: "The Lufthansa crew and planesnare always top notch."
Cons: "Long wait time to board, delay of approx 40 min without any update on what was happening. I believe however that is not the fault of Lufthansa crew but rather the SJJ airport staff. I also have one star for entertainment bc there is no option for “not applicable”- this airbus was not equipped with a television or other entertainment options as the flight length is merely an hour."
Pros: "Poor customer service dealing with bag delayed for 5 days, almost all of my holiday was over by the time the bag came and I was promised my bag would arrive on day 2, 3 and 4. Didn't arrive til 5th day"
Cons: "Late baggage, incompetent staff who each told me a different lie about when the bag would arrive"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Flight left on time"
Cons: "Incorrect advice from check in staff at Dublin re transit visa requirements"
Pros: "Food and service were good"
Cons: "Flight was 30 minutes late to board and it was very crowded, so we ended up leaving an hour late (but made up most of the time)."
Cons: "I was not allowed to take my cabin bag and was forced to check it in at the checkin counter. The reason mentioned to me was the flight is small. Contradictorily, travellers after me in the queue were allowed to take cabin bags."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "Seat wasn't the best in premium economy. Quite hard with little support."
Pros: "Flight was on time. We boarded and left on time. Flight attendants were friendly and courteous. I was happy to get a complementary sandwich and drink on such a short flight. We arrived at our destination earlier than expected. Seats were no frills, but decent. Overall good experience."
Cons: "Boarding is stressful. A free for all. I wish they would announce and board one section at a time. I'm traveling with children! I don't want extra stress of people being so pushy. Also,on arrival the bus back to the terminal was similar."
Pros: "It was all great!"
Cons: "I was denied boarding on the Dublin to Munich leg of my connecting flight from Newark to Munich. My ticket was booked through Lufthansa, but the transatlantic leg of my trip was operated by United. When checking in with United in Newark, I received two boarding passes, one for each leg of the trip. I arrived on time in Dublin for my flight to Munich and tried to board the plane for Munich with the boarding pass I had printed in Newark. After scanning my ticket, the Lufthansa employees at the gate informed me that they had no record of me or my plane ticket in their system. I showed them the email confirmation for my ticket, but they still could not find any record of my ticket in their online system. The employees seemed more concerned with boarding all passengers as quickly as possible than assisting me. After being denied boarding, I had to go back through passport control to change my flight, and ended up getting to Munich nearly 6 hours behind schedule and missed an entire day of vacation. A Lufthansa employee told me that out of every partner in the STAR alliance, United is the ONLY airline they have had this problem with. I find this inexcusable, I will be AVOIDING ANY United/Lufthansa connecting flight from now on."

Cons: "Flight delayed by over 3 hours, inflight entertainment did not work"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and eager to help, as I was traveling alone with a baby"

Pros: "Good service except added an extra flight to my trip and"
Cons: "Pilot strike rerouted added a flight and 12 HRs"
Pros: "New crew on first flight but they we're even"
Cons: "Not much. Left sitting on a plane for over an hour & 1/2. Then taken into a door where I illegally entered the country. My passports seized. No other flight available to Dallas. Sent to Newark, NJ & missed the next flight to Dallas because Lufthansa lost my scooter. Someone pulled it by a wire and it doesn't run correctly. VERY BAD EXPERIENCE!!!"
Pros: "the crew was good"
Cons: "the food was poor"
Cons: "2 1/2 hour wait while boarded then missed flights in toronto. Toronto airport a mess! Unclear directions and procedues."
Pros: "I liked how organized the crews are. The flight attendants are driven by efficiency. Things were done quickly like serving drinks and water. Appreciated having the hand towel to wipe the hands before serving the meals."
Cons: "I fly economy class with United and Lufthansa when I travel from the US to Asia or Europe. Lufthansa seats feel narrower. I am only 1.62 meters in height. I felt there was not enough room for a 12+ hour flight (delayed by one hour). The small leg room began to take a toll after 6 hours of flight."
Pros: "Loved the business class upgrade"
Cons: "Lack of food choices even in business class"
Pros: "This was the first time flying with Lufthansa. The overal service was excellent. I would give 5 stars."
Cons: "I wasn't even on this airline my booking reference said that I was. I had this airlines flight number I go to the gate to check in, and then for me I'm on Air Canada. This was a mass from the start I will never use this airline or Air Canada again they ruin my login and told me it's still usable we had a delayed for three hours on the plane. Never never again!"
Pros: "Roomy flight, professional crew, great service."
Cons: "Check in with an extra bag or overweight baggage is cumbersome. You must first check in, then take bag elsewhere to pay fee, then take bag back to check in."
Pros: "Crew took care of business. Kept all the passengers in good comfort."
Cons: "Unfortunate delay. Never seen flight left this delay. But they make up the delay."
Cons: "Delayed - but made up for later!"
Seats (in World Traveller Plus) were very comfortable. Service from the cabin crew was excellent.
My knees were in the seat in front of me. And then when the seat was laid back, my knees were jammed. I couldn’t even sit in my seat upright at the top bc there wasn’t enough shoulder room with the couple next to me and myself. A bit more room or accommodations for someone that is crammed in. Also, the hour and 15 mins of the flight, a child screamed and the mother did nothing. It would be nice if something would have been said instead of making everyone listen to this kid scream for over an hour.
Pros: "Crew was attentive - the service from SJC is much better than SFO - less crowded etc. New 787 and Premium Econ is great."
Pros: "Very nice crew"
Cons: "The boarding process, better seats, outdated entertainment system, & slow Baggage delivery ."
Pros: "Flight was excellent crew awesome."
Pros: "Seats had tv monitor"
Cons: "Check in was horrible and inefficient. The seats are smaller compared to most major airlines (Delta, AA, Air France, KLM)"
Pros: "Check In went fast, getting through security was also fast. The price was excellent."
Cons: "Small seat, did not recline fully but it was an economy ticket."
Pros: "On time service, quick to board ."
Cons: "I’m surprised by now that British airways don’t provide any food for children onboard. A cheese and mushroom toastier is not exactly child friendly"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Inadequate frequency and quality of service by flight attendants, mediocre food, small portions at dinner service, poor responsiveness of seat controls, incredibly poor resolution and small sized video screen in business class. Nothing but candy and pretzels available for snacks between the long time between meal services. No separate jetway for first and business class passengers. Several hour delayed takeoff after boarding due to multiple maintenance issues and equipment failures."
Pros: "Nothing to like at all."
Cons: "There is no food even water at international flight!!! Terrible service."
Pros: "Service and welcome was great."
Cons: "Entertainment system was old and screen was not working the first 2 hours."
Cons: "2 1/2 delay with no information to travelers. We were told Gate A then at the last minute (after a couple of hours) it was switched to Gate C. We had to take a transport to new gate and were afraid we would miss flight as the original flight time was still posted. There was no updated flight info anywhere. Very stressful after what was already a long wait."
Pros: "The plane was newly refurbished. Entertainment was excellent. Seat room, or course, is an issue and comfort was a little above average for economy, but the operation was well-run, the food was descent, and entertainment was solid."
Cons: "The screens on the seatbacks could use shielding from oblique angles. If the people in front of you decide to binge-watch movies late into the night, it can interfere with sleep."
Pros: "When we finally took off."
Cons: "Flight was delayed >3.5 hours because of an "electrical problem affecting in-flight entertainment system and 1st and Business Class seats. After powering down the aircraft c. 3 times at 11:15pm CT the electrical system miraculously worked as normal."
Pros: "New, clean aircraft. Pleasant crew. Good food & plenty to drink. Great TV & movie choices."
Cons: "Economy seats are close & cramped. I’m a 5’3” medium build woman, and I was cramped!"
Cons: "The unpleasant unhelpful staff"
Cons: "Theres no entertainment and I had to run to my gate because the connection time is so short."
Pros: "In flight entertainment is awesome but we left an hour late! Love BA though, wish American Airlines would take a note."
Pros: "The crew, all the way around were very attentive & courteous, food was great!"
Cons: "I was completely satisfied with this airline, would use again!"
Cons: "Old aircraft, mediocre entertainment display, food was sub par compared to previous flights"
Pros: "flight cancelled"
Cons: "flight cancelled because of fog,........ there was no fog"
Pros: "The flight attendants were great, helpful and polite. The food was delicious and there was planty leg room. A great airline to fly with and I'd highly recommend them."
Cons: "Nothing, all was great."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, the food was good, but I have had better. Entertainment was good"
Cons: "The comfort was the worst I have ever experienced. Because it was so bad I will never travel BA again"
Cons: "transfer from terminal 5 to terminal 3 - process was unclear"
Pros: "How short the flight was and the fact that I had an empty seat next to me."
Pros: "The staff helped me board and get better seating."
Cons: "There was only one meal through out. A few snacks here and there."
Pros: "Reminds me of great flights from days when service was king. Only better."
Pros: "General advantage of flying with BA like T5 and lounges"
Cons: "Food quality going down every time and no flight entertainment for a 4 hrs flight."
Pros: "Clean plane with good crew"
Cons: "Come on BA, you are meant to be a service airline..... not completing with EasyJet and Ryanair....."
Pros: "Flight on time, good crew, got a direct gate position at FRA."
Cons: "Legroom in Club Europe is poor, seating in the front rows should not have been densified so much."
Pros: "Smooth and nice flight. Crew was friendly and attentative."
Cons: "I found it surprisingly coincidental that both my wife's and my checked bags did not make the flight to Santorini. Of course, given how the process in dealing with Kayak and this booking, it did not surprise me. Any calls or customer service related questions were handled as though we were 2nd class citizens. I've never been treated like this traveling, but always the attitude came from "oh, you booked this through a discount site" and then I was handled accordingly. I booked it through Kayak for ease as I planned a 7-city, 21 day trip around the Adriatic. Now we'll do our honeymoon without a wardrobe change, filing claims for the contents of our bags, as no one can tell us what happened, or where the bags are, and we're about to depart for our next city. Never, NEVER book a trip from a 3rd party. The seats next to the toilets that don't recline, attitude from airlines, now my first lost bag in 10 years (I fly 3 times a month, too)."
Pros: "That I was in shape to run from one terminal to another to catch the flight"
Cons: "The transfer flight was a disaster - see above. We dragged a car seat to the plane and dropped it off before we boarded. Upon landing, there was no car seat to be found. We were told to go to baggage as it would be there. We waited for over an hour for it to come through and it never did. Again no ground staff available to assist. Airport security advised to go BA office. They located the car seat in London. It never made the flight?! We arrived Wed and the car seat wasn't delivered until Friday. Again, no contact from anyone. I received a call from the courier when I was out. Overall, atrocious customer service from BA"
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "No leg room"
Cons: "While I prefer beef to be cooked rare to medium-rare (and mentioned this) on both legs the meat was well-done and dry. This is common to many airline steaks, and may be an unavoidable consequence of the limitations of preparing food on board. (Though I have had reasonably prepared meat dishes on certain AA flights). All dishes are highly under-seasoned, but a packet of salt and paper is provided, so this is not a curial concern."
Pros: "It is great that they give every person a blanket and pillow on boarding. Flight was nice and dark. The flanges that pull down on either side of the headrest to lean your head into are genius."
Cons: "Flight was late and announcements were not understandable over the PA. While I understand that seats are made for the "average passenger" and at 5'2" I am on the very low end of that, seat was very uncomfortable with a metal bar higher than the seat cushion poking forward where the cushion met the seatback. The temperature was extremely variable and when my seat mates who did not speak English very well tried to flag a flight attendant down to get an extra blanket, the flight attendants actively ignored them, so I hit my assistance button and my light went on, then after some time it went off again without our being helped so I hit it again about 10 minutes later and my light went on again but was again ignored. Then the attendants started selling things from the flight magazine and looked the other way as they went by my hopeful beacon. When they finally did get to me, I got a curt "I'll see if there is anything I can do" and she went off, returning 5 minutes later with one blanket when there were two people. Later on I saw her give blankets to others, and I found that strange."
Pros: "Efficient and polite crew and excellent entertainmemt!"
Cons: "No direct communication. Really bad"
Pros: "Crew was gracious and professional despite long lines of frustrated passengers. I was very impressed."
Cons: "Meals were tasteless."
Pros: "Their approach, politeness and service"
Cons: "Cannot think of anything"
Cons: "My flight was booked for April 25 and my paperwork actually showed that. Upon arrival at Gatwick I was told the flight left on April 24 and no other flight till April 27 so I had to go to Heathrow."
Cons: "we order kosher food for the flights, on the first flight we recive only for 1 pessanger so on the way back we call few days before to the airlines company to confirm that is kosher food for both passengers and they confirm and again we didnt recive only 1 passanger recive for flight over 20 hours way to be with out food"
Cons: "Low quality of the food !!!"
Pros: "Maybe to other people the service was regular - but this was the fanciest flight I'd ever been on. The crew was great - never actually knew that much technology was available on the plane. I'm not a very fancy person and this was a really fun way to fly."
Pros: "Don't usually have a chance to fly BA in the USA. The flight crew were professional, courteous, and very friendly. They ALL looked so polished and well groomed. Some USA carriers should take a look. It makes a difference. Even their donning hats and putting on suit jackets on landing made an impression on me. Thanks British Airways."
Cons: "Nothing Wonderful flight"
Pros: "Everything is clockwise precision. All the passengers were well disciplined or rather made to be. Aircraft was very airworthy. The pilot was very experienced and nice soft landing at Mumbai in spite of inclement weather conditions"
Cons: "The food & drinks. Both offered we're mediocre stuff."
