Pros: "Organized process and controls."
Cons: "The crew can be a little more personable. They were very professional and courteous. Didn’t go out of their way to serve."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and willing to assist with everything."
Cons: "Seats are terrible. Crew didn't ask if I wanted to drink anything with the meal. Seemed like a budget flight."
Pros: "Super friendly and never skipped the details."
Pros: "Pilot communication"
Cons: "Free snacks & drinks"
Cons: "Reduced quality in Cuisine, and problem exacerbated by industrial strike by BA Catering Services company on the day in question. I didn't get value for what I payed for."

Pros: "Arrived earlier than scheduled, crew were informative"
Cons: "Departure was delayed"
Pros: "Great crew. BA lounge at Heathrow excellent."
Cons: "Flight delayed 4 hours due to technical issues. BA for a new plane but unfortunately still 4 hours late leaving Heathrow."
Pros: "Nothing. The fact that I booked my ticket via British Airways, but operated by Iberia made my situation very confusing. Iberia didn't offer me a connection flight from MAD to VLC when there was a 6 hours delay from JFK to MAD."
Cons: "Partner airline should have a better process to help customers when the help is needed the most! There was neither ownership nor responsibility held accountable by Iberia to help me find a connection flight between MAD to VLC. I had to pay for a Renfe ticket on my own to get to VLC - Nightmare!"
Pros: "The free drinks."
Cons: "The stink of curry throughout the plane and the other choices of meal being gluten laden pasta and gluten laden crackers, muffins, and bread for breakfast. I am very glad I ate in SFO before leaving or I’d have been starving by the time e arrived in LHR."
Pros: "Timely service and courteous staff."
Cons: "They took too long to start boarding group 1 and 2, crew did an awesome job, but flyers don’t keep the cleaning and after four hours is filthy"
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "The food, the wine"
Pros: "Good food great service"
Cons: "Delayed my flight connection was missed and ba said they put me on another flight but they never did"
Cons: "One piece of luggage was left at Heathrow. It arrived on the next flight so it turned out ok but was stressful for an hour."
Cons: "there's no screen. hence there's no chance of entertainment. a cup of water or just a juice box should be free/standard."
Pros: "Price was reasonable"
Cons: "They lost my luggage due to transfer"
Pros: "Price was goo £200 cheaper than the BA price"
Cons: "Cabin very cold over the whole journey at the end of the day you pay peanuts get monkeys But BA has a very tired fleet compared to say Emerites"
Pros: "BA overall service was good."
Cons: "Boarding at venice was a disaster. they changed gate without annoncing it in english. I am sure they did it in Italian but not every travel speaks italian. getting on bus to airplane was not organized at all. staff let people ahead of me taking their carry on bags larger than my normal size bag but asked me to check in mine. i thought perhaps i am amoung the last and there is no room left. how ever while i was waiting they let many others take their carry on with them. i explained them that i have expensive Murrano glass in my carry on and prefer not to check in or at least provide a tag to mark it fragile. response was that we are out of tag! and i have no choioce. i was very upset theway they trreated me and told them i will file a complain and took their picture. almost by the time i was getting on bus one of crew approached me with at Fragile tag to add to my bag. after all when i received my carry on bag in LAX many of my gifts were smashed and broken."
Cons: "Plane was making strange noise Way too cold on the plane . When I asked for blanket they gave me one that wasn’t wrapped. I didn’t like that they didn’t even offer anything to drink for free."
Cons: "Virtually impossible to feel comfortable that I had successfully checked in. The app kept telling Facebook me I wasn't checked in. AND when I went to review the checked baggage policy to make sure I didn't have to pay for my first checked bag (there was a "YES" notice on a prior screen that made me wonder), the app didn't give me a way to "return to finish check in". Quite unsatisfactory in this day and age. Otherwise, the flight was lovely."
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "I did like how efficiently the transfer was handled to the other plane, and I did like that we got a five pound voucher to get something to eat."
Cons: "I didn't like that, having boarded, and waiting for half hour, we had to leave the plane due to some electrical issue, and had to get another plane, which delayed our trip by three hours. I feel something like that should have been noticed before we boarded."
Pros: "fast efficient, lovely crew,"
Cons: "shame B.A. is turning into a budget airline, despite the high standards of service trying to be maintained by the excellent crews."
Pros: "Was not able to check in for the flight on the ba.com. Called BA on the phone - no help. Person in the Geneva airport - unprofessional, unhelpful, had to go to another agent to get seat assignment. British Airlines - disappointing."
Cons: "Customer service - useless and with attitude. Couldn’t check in for the flight either on ba.com or over the phone."
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: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "Very smooth security and boarding process at Gatwick. It was worth the extra $11 to have pre-selected my seat, 9C, in the second row of Coach on the aisle. The seating was a bit cramped, and the flight was full, but being up front made everything more pleasant. The landing process in Valencia went very well, and the metro to the town center was very efficient."
Cons: "The flight attendants had some problems initially with the electronic card reader for taking payments for food and beverage. It's always a bit jarring to me to be onboard an airplane where there's not a single complimentary beverage option, but I know it's common on many non-US carriers."
Pros: "Comfortable cabin pleasant crew. On time."
Cons: "BA charges for everything even water."
Pros: "The staff helpful and quick to respond."
Cons: "The incredibly uncomfortable, too narrow, too cramped seats with immovable armrests. Awful!!!"
Pros: "I worked for BA for 20 years. I was glad to book them. Ba Turned out to be AA Sat scrunched up between to big people. while in the back there were. 2 people sleeping across 4 seats. outrageous"
Cons: "No seats were allocated when i checked in for return flight. Flight overbooked. No time to change currency or stop for a tea as I had to wait and see if i was going to get a seat I was 3 and 1/2 hours before the flight."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, moderately intelligible announcements, passable food"
Cons: "In both directions, EDI—>JFK, our plane offered neither wi-fi (paid or free) nor seatback video screens, which is an awful lot of hours with no connection to anything. I didn't realize that any transatlantic airline still ran films on common screens, 1970s-style. Just how old were our planes?"
Pros: "full flight but well staffed and attentive. Great entertainment options."
Cons: "Takes too long to go through security in Lisbon. Several passengers were left behind. Having to pay for even a glass of water is not acceptable. BA has gone from one of my favorites to just average."
Pros: "The crew on the flight from London to Chicago was absolutely amazing, funny with great service... really can't ask for more.."
Cons: "Food was average at best.."
Cons: "video unavailable for half for the flight"
Pros: "Professional service. On time departure, early arrival."
Pros: "I liked how the Spanish Police Woman at the Passport station left her post at 6:50 am, with hundreds of people still on line for 0710 flights, knowing that her shift change came at 0700, to go "help" a pregnant woman who had fainted behind us! She did absolutely nothing to help out-but then conveniently was "replaced" by the next shift guy at 0700! What a farce!"
Cons: "Okay. We arrived at 0500 for our 0710 flight. British Airways had 3 or 4 stations open to process about 120 passengers-and the lines were painfully slow and inefficient. It was horrible. Finally, at 0630 we finished and then had to deal with the fiasco at passport control which was likely worse. You need to have more agents or kiosks so that people can print their own damn boarding passes. Get modernized! Stop being deliberately obstinate! Further, to charge passengers for coffee and poor snacks is abominable! No frills? Yeah, you can take that to the bank!!"
Pros: "I liked the movies and the entertainments on the plane."
Cons: "People like old when it comes to history, traditions, restaurants etc. But when it comes to travel and technology people don't. Two of my friend's entertainment monitors were broken, bugs with the program all the time, no wifi on board. Compared to other airlines BA was quite disappointing."
Pros: "The food was good, but BA charged for even a soda."
Cons: "Paying for even a basic beverage. Really?"
Pros: "The staff was pleasant & helpful. Queues for boarding moved along quickly & efficiently. Overall positive experience"
Pros: "Service flight crw"
Cons: "Terribly crowded"
Cons: "Flight delayed and changed multiple times"
Pros: "The was helpful and friendly and was able to take care of problems."
Cons: "Notifying me when a flight was being canceled before getting to the airport not where. You are supposed to be boarding the plane."
Pros: "Best Airline."
Cons: "Nothing, flights are always great in my experience with United."
Cons: "The video on safety did not work"
Cons: "Terrible boarding process, awful food, rude staff...literally one of the worst flights ever"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly. The seats were ok but for a 12 hour flight nothing would be perfect."
Cons: "I think it went as well as possible. No delays in boarding and only short delay waiting for a gate at SFO. The flight crew were very friendly and drinks and food were adequate."
Cons: "We were delayed not once, not twice, but 3 times. Changed our gate 3 times. They changed planes twice. Then, only one agent at the gate to do everything!! I will not fly United again unless I have to!!"
Cons: "It’s just crowded. The crew was great. Safe landing"
Pros: "Great service, quick and easy!"
Pros: "enjoyed getting moved up to economy plus with my premier silver status."
Cons: "the little kid kicking my seat behind me which is no one's fault except the parent which you can't police."
Cons: "Not a kind service"
Pros: "Flight was good, nothing stood out as good or bad. It just seems like a very tight space (I'm 5'3 and less than 150 lbs)."
Cons: "Going through TSA in Newark Airport was HORRENDOUS. A TSA agent grabbed my things out of my hand and threw it on the belt without any consent from me. I was still unpacking my carry on, to abide to the rules and no she just wouldn't have it and was very rude."
Pros: "Nobody bugged me about plugging my laptop and cellphone into the wall for charging. I wanted to check out the spice shops in the airport but they were closed both times I was there. That would have been something I might have liked."
Cons: "Customs in Trinidad, even for transit is a pain. You go through customs, get dumped outside, have to recheck your luggage whenever the counter decides its going to open. 11 hour layover on the way down, 6 hour layover on the way up. Food options were fried chicken (KFC), fried chicken (Churches), fried chicken (the local franchise), and Subway. Since the layover was late at night and I was a woman traveling alone, I did not want to leave the airport (and still drag my luggage because the airline counter was not open yet to check in to my connecting flight)."
Cons: "After the entire flight was boarded & ready to go the plane had a mechanical issue before take off. Had to sit on the plan for 90 minutes before we were allowed to exit the plane. No other flights available For family of three until 3 days later! Had to demand to be transferred to another airline so my family & I can go home the next morning. Overall stuck in SNA airport for 8 hours. Didn’t get a refund for baggage, instead was given meal vouchers for the airport in the morning. United did provide hotel for the night but nothing special. United staff where nice to make the best of the situation."
Pros: "Great service and fed well!!"
Cons: "4 hour delay but they did give me 5,000 miles. And I think the main problem with the delay was the airports problem of not having parts."
Pros: "Flight was uncomfortably hot, seats are incredibly close together / too tight. Also flight was delayed"
Pros: "The only thing i liked was when i left this horrible, run down airport and the awful people working at it."
Cons: "There was nothing good about this flight... until i landed in Pittsburgh. I will never fly United again... and i will avoid Newark at all costs."
Pros: "No delays, kind people, fast flight, what's not to like?"
Pros: "Crew on the plane were nice"

Pros: "It was a regularly good flight, as comfortable as a long flight can be, and I thought the food was pretty good for 'airline food'. Tasty."
Cons: "My ear bud jack happened to not work. No biggie."
Pros: "The flight crew were friendly enough. Space in the overhead cabin was adequate. The seats were fairly comfy. And I liked that there were power outlets for passeners to use."
Cons: "My flight to Pittsburgh was cancelled and NO attempt to rebook was made by united. No compensation. I had to fly to Cleveland and rent a car for $150 and drive to Pittsburgh. United refused to pay for my rental car. Terrible experience."
Cons: "United had only available flight to Harrisburg which is over three hours from Binghamton."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Good options are terrible"
Cons: "Not only did we sit on the plan for almost two hours before they realized that the plane didn't have enough gas we sat there for a another 30 minutes circling the dam flight line only to realize that there is to much cargo in the plane that it's to heavy to fly they didn't let anyone use the bathroom and we proceeded back to the terminal only to get on a different plane to fly out"
Pros: "Due to being late to the airport I didn't get on the flight however the staff was very courteous and rerouted me"
Cons: "3 hour delay, water didn't work in bathroom so there was no washing my hands, bathroom old and dirty, seats old, mismatched and dirty. Essentially a terrible flight."
Pros: "The food was tasty for airline food."
Cons: "The tv on the headrest didn't work."
Cons: "Both flights were late !!!!"
Pros: "That I made it home and had an open seat next to me"
Cons: "Service was unfriendly. Didn't have headphones, didn't have pillows. Seat was not much leg room. Plane had a hard landing with screeching tires, like a car that's spinning out of control. The passenger nearest me said that's the last time she's ever flying United, that she'll stick to Jawaiian from now on. I mirror her sentiments"
Cons: "It was a new plane and they added another row of seats in economy. My knee hurt for two days."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly, and that's really all that matters. The crew was great."
Cons: "Don't know why we have to pay for entertainment. It used to be free."
Pros: "Very roomy and workers were helpful."
Cons: "Nothing. It was great!"
Cons: "Cancelled and rebooked on a different airline with a long layover."
Cons: "The tsa lines of course."
Pros: "The flight was short 102 people so the attendants were very attentive."
Cons: "A seat with more cushion would be nice for an 8 hour flight."
Pros: "Just noticed survey on my flight from Omaha to Chicago. Sadly I woke up to find that that flight was cancelled and I had to reschedule and flown to Denver instead."
Cons: "The stewardess wasn't the least bit helpful. I did not see any friendliness on her part to anyway. It was like she had to do the job but didn't like being there. So very weird. My original flight to Milwaukee with stop in Chicago was cancelled. This was a flight that took me to Denver and then Milwaukee. Therefore cold for over two hours. Not a good experience with United."
Pros: "The flight overall went fast - boarded, took off, landed within an hour."
Cons: "There was only one snack - a zesty ranch snack mix. I couldn't eat it because it was a little spicy. I was not offered an alternative, I don't know if there was one."
Pros: "We were flying from Atlanta to Chicago to Jackson Hole (50 minute layover). Because of bad storms the flight was delayed for hours but they got us on a different flight through Denver and we still arrived on time, and with all of our baggage. Great job!"
Pros: "Flight staff were friendly and accomodating going to destination"
Cons: "Computer system down at check in on return flight but staff at shannon did great job on checking in manually earphones outlet in seat did not work making return flight very long with no entertainment staff were ok"
Cons: "Never want to fly into newark again. Wrong baggage claim 5 advertised and waited till last bags picked up b4 being told oh we made a mistake and its carousel 7. And if the end of the trip wasn't bad enough the beginning was a nightmare at newark with getting there and the security/tsa..Nobody wants to do their job just pass the buck and make it more chaotic. No wonder there were lines wrapping around terminal 3/4 times. I know this is not directly related to airline but since u insist on flying out of newark it is indirectly. They say la guardia is third world well then newark is fourth/fifth world. Chaos absolute chaos. Please god i will never have to fly united /Lufthansa out of newark again."
Pros: "Plane left on time and got in early. Flight crew unusually pleasant. Service fine."
Cons: "I upgraded my seat and had hoped to get an aisle seat. When none of those were available, I chose a window seat. However, when I took my seat, I was sitting next to a wall, not a window. Bummer"
Pros: "Boarding was organized and easy. The crew was great"
Cons: "Everyone is so crammed together in economy that even just a few hour flight was really uncomfortable for everyone in our row and we were all average sized people. I am 6ft tall 180lbs and had the aisle seat but still found zero comfort in the seat and leg room. The gentleman next to me was even smaller than me and he struggled too"
Cons: "Even though I downloaded the app, the WiFi wasn't available so there was no entertainment. Also, the flight was delayed over an hour."
Cons: "Check in was was understaffed waited for 30 before assisted"
