Cons: "We got told that our flight number had changed from VS103 to VS4049 but still a Virgin flight. Only when we checked in we found out we were now flying with Delta and number was now DL285. Was not happy as wanted to fly with Virgin.The seats were ok but the entertainment system went down mid film. Took an hour to get started again. The games didn't work. Staff were a bit grumpy."
Cons: "Service is super fast"
Pros: "Amazing food and drinks, and to top it off we were served a frozen ice cream treat during our flight."
Pros: "I was selected for additional screening at the gate. I have no problem with this at all. From the start I told them I am traveling with my fiancee. They tried to hold me back in a separate area after the screening and I once again told them my fiancee was waiting for me. One staff memeber walked with me half way back to get her and then disappeared. By the time I found her and came back, the staff memeber was no where to be found. Now we had lost are spot in the line and had to go to the back of the line. We spoke to 3 different staff people about what was going on and everyone said, oh the guy over there will help you. But no one did. The staff had No idea how to run a security check or handle paople. There was No working wifi! There was no tvs in the seats, only the old style in the aisle. The staff told me the plan was going to retire at the end of the month. The food was more for animals then for humans! We got updates by txt 10 mins before the staff updated the gate on our flight out from SFO. I have traveled all over the world with a lot of airlines and Never had such a poor service, but what is it to expect. It was United after all!"
Cons: "Refund of the whole flight."
Pros: "Fast check in Fast security line Upper Class Clubhouse Fast boarding Excellent onboard service Great crew"
Cons: "Old entertainment system Although the seats can be turned into a bed they don't fully recline"
Pros: "Everything from boarding to disembarking went very smoothly. Flight was on time, seats were comfortable and crew was friendly and accommodating."
Pros: "I was very impressed by the generosity you show concerning food och drink. the staff was kind and glad."
Cons: "I never understood how to connect the earphones to the screen so I couldn't ser any movie. But - I could have asked the staff of course ..."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly, and helpful. I also liked that the exit row that I was given had more than enough leg room, the dinner was really good for airplane food and snacks were great also. The attendant that I had for my section also told me that all food and drinks were free so they gave me a few extra adult drinks here and there which is a plus for how long the flight was going to be. The movie selection is great also having some on there that are still in theaters is a huge plus."
Cons: "The boarding process seemed way out of order, they made so many mistakes and nobody knew what to do, then you have the pushy passengers that are sitting coach getting mad that you're boarding before them. Breakfast left me wanting something else, lets just say this if you are given the choice of something vs french toast, take the something."
Pros: "We paid extra for more legroom and it was totally worth it."
Cons: "The regular seats were so lacking in leg room that I could not cross my legs, reach the floor to get my glasses when I dropped them, or even get my carry-on out. There is no way to get into the "brace for impact position" with arms over your head and head in your lap! This is really unsafe, not to mention really uncomfortable. The flight was long, so comfort would be nice! Our first flight was regular seats and I was pretty miserable and I am a slender woman 5'6". The extra 3" was great, and we had to pay more on the return trip. The FAA should be investigating seat size and safety on planes."
Pros: "Quantity of food was less for the dinner time..but overall experience was good.."
Pros: "Flight okay and staff attentive. Seats still to close together. Had to purchase seat to guarantee not be in middle rows. Plane very warm throughout flight."

Pros: "Virgin has the nicest staff, good food, and excellent movie options. I had a great time on my flight!"
Pros: "There are lots of relatively new movies to choose from."
Cons: "The complimentary headset breaks easily. Tray table was broken and they can't fix it. Very small bathrooms, knees almost touch the door when sitting down. Food selection for dinner ran out quickly, resulting in only 2 choices and one is hot spicy, so basically only one choice. All beverages are given out in small cups, even water is given out in small cups increments (finish in one gulp), they don't even give out small bottles of water. No complimentary packet (eye shades, socks etc.) , not even a barf bag for collecting trash."
Cons: "I did not get the requested meal. I had requested Asian Veg meal. I had reconfirmed that Virgin Atlantic Kiosk at Heathrow airport as well. In flight when I asked cabin crew they said they didn't get any request. I was hungry whole flight. Very bad experience."
Pros: "reservations easy to make (like most other airlines) A water bottle, blanket, headset & sleep kit on each seat. Seats were not so close together in coach that your knees were against your chin if the guy in front of you put his seat back. The planes I was on To/from LAX-BNE felt very spacious because of the interior height. 2 free checked bags."
Cons: "The food was mediocre--doughy stuff for both meals Not very tasty. The entertainment selection was nowhere near as good as on other airlines. Very Australia-heavy music, old films & TV shows available, as well as some new ones. But no live TV channels, not even current news."
Cons: "cabin was nice but cold"
Pros: "Seat Legroom Comfort Food Service Crew ... amazing!!!"
Cons: "My video monitor didn't work so I couldn't watch movies, asked the crew twice to help and they never did. Then to top off a terrible 10 hour flight with no entertainment, my bag never made it. Worst experience ever"
Pros: "The plane was very nice with great lighting. More food would have been nice as it was a long flight The crew were variable - most very helpful but one or two not so much"
Cons: "Not enough food for everyone and no snacks between meals, which was very bad considering it was a 10 hour flight Entertainment was great, seats were OK (certainly had worse)"
Pros: "Service, food, etched all fine"
Cons: "Fees to assign seats in advance are very high. Sat on the Tarmac a while before takeoff and after landing."
Pros: "I liked entertainment options on your phone but at the same time there was nowhere to plug your phone if it ran out of battery."
Cons: "The boarding was good but we did not depart o time which did not cause us to be on time to our destination. It was international flight for almost 4 hours and there was no foodie snacks serve. Only tea or coffee. For a international flight more than 2 hours you should offer something else, soda juices and a snack at the very least. I guess the reason why I am feeling this ways is because I flew with virgin a couple years back to London and was so impressed by he service and the airline and the great quality modern vibe. It was the W hotels of the airlines industry and this time I really want impressed."
Pros: "The vegetarian meals, leg room and comfortable seats, wifi tv entertainment, kind and courteous service. It made the trip more comfortable! Thanks!"

Pros: "The veg meal - paneer, rice, lentils - was absolutely delicious. In fact, all of the food was great."
Cons: "Slight problem with the movie viewing - the screen kept going blank every minute or two throughout, and had to be touched to restart. Only on the films, though; the TV episodes were fine."
Pros: "Great food and movie offerings. On time and courteous staff."

Cons: "Delay, small seats"
Pros: "Professional crew, on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "Very cramped seating, almost uncomfortable"

Pros: "Liked foot room"
Cons: "Padded seat belt very uncomfortable.., tv control & pad on seatbelt pushed me into client on left, big gent sitting next to her pushed her into me.., people walked thru isle & stepped on my toes..., why virgin Atlantic moved us & gave refund I will never know...we paid for extra leg rm 4 months ago"
Pros: "Cabin Staff were attentive and professional. Aircraft was clean and neat. Flight Pushed back, took off and landed on time!"
Cons: "We were allowed to choose our seats from SFO to Amsterdam but not for the return flight. I like to be able to choise my seats when I book the flight. Choosing seats 24 hours before is not convenient when traveling for the return trip."

Pros: "On both of my flights to New York City, I was amazed at how friendly and helpful the flight attendants were to the passengers. On my short flight from Basel to Amsterdam, a young French speaking girl was concerned about how to manage getting to her next gate. The flight attendants talked to her and arranged for someone to take her there. On my longer flight from Amsterdam to New York City, there was a customer who was in distress about missing a previous flight and not making it to her connecting flight in New York. One of the flight attendants reassured her until she stopped crying and calmed down. That same flight attendant was always so positive and cheerful in all she did. The rest of the crew was top notch. This was my best experience flying in such a long time. Well done, KLM crews of flights 1984 and 0645 on July 10!"

Pros: "They were awesome."
Pros: "It was a short flight so it was O.K."
Cons: "Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger."
Pros: "Very good flight, excellent service and good food."
Pros: "I ended up getting home with less delay than originally predicted. I guess that's a good thing Also delta customer service was super polite and trying to help when I called"
Cons: "Delay again... seems to be pretty frequent on KLM flights at least on the ones I flew with in the past 4 years... this time it was 3hours wait due to a technical issue... no alternative flight option and we ended up getting a very old plane as a replacement.

Cons: "- Schiphol airport (AMS) is small, crowded, noisy; no water fountains; toilets are dirty and insufficient in number; SFO is much better - KLM boarding process was chaotic (not by group or row number), boarding/security personnel (4 old guys) didn't have a clue - 787 is noisy, chairs are uncomfortable (my back still hurts) and very close together, they also recline way too much - food trays not collected promptly - noisy babies on all flights - clearly not enough cabin crew for a full flight - no or wrong info by pilots on timing (crew are always lying anyway) - gate is all around the back at SFO (long taxi to get there) - they inserted people in wheelchairs during deboarding thus holding everybody up."
Pros: "Food was relatively good"
Cons: "We had ourtrip from San Francisco to Amsterdam which is one of the longest flights ever, andthe entertainment system wasnt working, we kept on telling them several times but nothing happened and at the end they wereeven avoiding us.

The extra leg room seats at the exit aisles I was offered don't recline. (This wasn't true on the next flight).

Cons: "I actually didn't fly QR. My RJ light from TLV to AMM was delayed by approx 2 hours. I asked to be taken off the flight in order to fly the day after from TLV to LCA and take QR. However the RJ gate agents explained that there are over 40 people on the flight that need to take the QR from AMM and that the ties between RJ and QR are very strong and the QR flight will wait the necessary 15 minutes. However, as we landed in AMM we saw the QR aircraft push back 5 minutes earlier than the scheduled departure. We got stuck in AMM and the RJ people were nice but totally inefficient and claimed that they were limited by their corporate procedures. I asked to be put on an Etihad flight that was scheduled to leave 2 hours later and that would put me at the end of the day in MAA (my destination) around 2.5 hours later which was acceptable in my eyes. The transfer desk agent said he is going to arrange it, disappeared for 45 minutes and then came and told me this is already too late for Etihad (it was not) and anyway they cannot let me take Etihad since they are not a part of "One World". I argued a bit and he said ok went to teh back office and disappeared for another 20 minutes. at that point he came and told me that all is taken care of and here is my new flight and proceeded to show me an itinerary which took me through BKK to MAA but the AMM-BKK flight will leave only at 0130 at night (this was around 1430) and get to BKK in the afternoon tomorrow. Then I will have to wait in the airport another 8-9 hours to fly to MAA. hence 2 nights without sleep staying at airports. BTW, I was the only Business/first passenger but this did not confer on me any special treatment. I refused to take this route and at the end asked them only to get me back to TLV and there I will change the whole route and go tomorrow on QR from LCA. I had to wait at AMM airport until 2100 and only now - 2300 - reached home which I left at 0600 this morning. BTW, i don't think that they restored my ticket to its original form (which was a full QR ticket covering also the RJ and Pegasus flights. but I was too tired to argue. I will postpone my trip by one more day and change the route to avoid another debacle like this one. Also, I chatted with the QR people in Amman, and ithey claim that they were not told that the RJ from TLV had 40 passengers connecting through them. This is the absolute opposite of what the RJ people claimed. Last, all his is without even mentioning the issues this delay caused since I have people who came specifically for this, waiting for me in MAA and God only knows when I will manage to get there and whether or not they will wait for me. Guys, you have to do something about this. I am quite a regular flyer and this is the worst experience I had."
Pros: "Fast check in, Comfort seats"
Pros: "Left on time. Probably overpriced for the length of the flight. Baggage was out promptly."
Pros: "We left early and arrived early. Seats were more spacious than I expected for economy class. It was a short flight so there was no food service, just orange juice."
Cons: "When My luggage was searched at the gate of armman before fly back to Chicago, my camera was taken away by security person, he never returned to me. I only found out when I got home."
Cons: "I'll was good"
Pros: "It’s a 25 minute flight. It’s all good. :)"
Cons: "I pre ordered a kosher meal. It was said to me that someone miscalculated and there were not enough kosher meals. I was left hungry and starved on such a long flight."
Pros: "Very short, only a half hour flight"
Cons: "nothing not to like"
Pros: "All new"
Cons: "Extensive security. Warm plane. No charging outlets."
Cons: "Flight attendants was a bit rude and not nice to passengers. They do not treat fairness to everyone and not cautious with their actions. I asked for water to one of the guy flight attendants and he did not come back."
Pros: "The Dreamliner is the best plane I’ve ever boarded, it was used for this short flight."
Cons: "Could not check in online, had to get the boarding pass at the airport."
Pros: "The flight was on time and arrived early"
Cons: "The plane is old. Even though I was flying business but they need to renew their short and medium range aircrafts"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Modern aircraft"
Cons: "Food is terrible Service is marginal They serve a mediocre meal right after takeoff then you don't see them again until right before landing with a dry snack"
Pros: "Good service, leaving on time"
Pros: "Loved all of the kind smiling faces on all of the flight attendants"
Pros: "Schedule was on time On departure crew were courteous"
Cons: "Lack of cleanliness, the crew did not walk the isles to take the rubbish from the passengers They did not pass by to sell duty free goods It would be nice if they upgrade free of charge frequent flyer members to business class when there are empty seats"
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding process, nice person at check-in counter"
Cons: "I used the restroom in the plane before takeoff and the it was absolutely filthy. It was clear it did not receive any attention between flights. I was sitting in the emergency exit row and, during takeoff, the plane made a horrible, howling/whining noise that I've never heard before. Everyone was looking around and fearful. I fly often and this was the kind of noise when you wonder "is this where it all ends?" Not sure if it was the engine just outside or the emergency exit not being fully sealed but it was the first time in a long time that I've been fearful on a plane."
Pros: "Everything overall was really good. The crew was helpful and very kind. The food was okay. The chairs were comfortable."
Cons: "The TVs and headphone jacks hardly worked."
Cons: "Lost 3 bags"
Pros: "The was extraordinary nice"
Cons: "Three of four flights were delayed"
Cons: "The flight was severely delayed and caused me to miss my connection to Berlin. I wasn't provided much explanation or assistance in planning an alternative itinerary to get me to my final destination."
Pros: "Comfort, service"
Pros: "Good all-around service from boarding to landing!"
Cons: "No alcoholic beverages on the flight! RJ does not upgrade silver or gold frequent flyer card holders for free even if there are open business class seats. The only time a free upgrade is provided is if the economy class is over sold."
Cons: "We were late boarding and did not make it to Chicago on time. This made me miss my last flight home. I had to purchase a flight home out of pocket. During the trip from Jordan to Chicago, a two year old kid kept kicking my seat. I complained to the parent and the crew, the issue was not resolved. The food was not very good."
Pros: "Tried United and delta airframe klm, no doubt RJ is the quickest rout to Jordan . Dreamliner witha great cabin service . I will Do it again !"
Pros: "All the flights were in time. New and clean aircrafts."
Pros: "1. I am a religious Jew and felt comfortable and relatively safe, more than expected. 2. The staff was very curious 3. The plane was surprisingly advanced - Boeing 787 dream-liner, has great entertainment a touch screen tablet with many entertainment options, also the crowed was very calm, polite and relatively quiet during the flight both ways."
Cons: "1. Upon arriving in JFK I had an issue with my luggage and no-one answered the phone number provided by the company, turns out a 3rd party company handles the luggage for RJ (Swiisport) and RJ is closed a few days a week, so take that in consideration if having any issue, must note they were curious and solved my issue when they were available. 2. Disappointingly there were no (extra) snacks such as chocolates or nuts ) available for sale during the flight."
Pros: "All five star excellent including perfect punctuality."
Cons: "Only downside is the front scree entertainment. Films limited to unspeakable junk....but hey some might like junk....and classical music limited to Bach's fugues and cantatas which I personally adore and hugely enjoyed, but not much else. Pop and jazz junk. Advantage is that one has/had 12 hours to read a brilliant novel."
Pros: "The crew was kind and professional, cosy seats with enough place for the legs... Good content in entertainment system."
Cons: "I did not fly this leg because Iberia somehow deleted my return flight home. This resulted in me flying home a different way that led to me landing the two hours later than I was originally going to."
Pros: "Nothing really was good or stood out in a positive way."
Cons: "Horrible lie flat seats with absolutely no stowage room. Seats are super cramped with 8 in a row you feel like being transported in a cattle car. Crew was most decidedly unfriendly. We were boarded on time despite the fact BA knew the flight was delayed and sat at the gate for an hour. Food was equivalent to hospital food. U must be crazy to fly business in BA. Never again."
Pros: "Lie flat bed"
Cons: "Non-A380 plane feels very old now and in need of an overhaul. My biggest complaint was the food. On the outbound leg (SFO-LHR) I had the pasta dish which was dry and poorly cooked so on the return flight I opted for the beef dish which was ok. I thought that the pasta was just a one-off issue. When the pre-landing meal arrived, it was so bad I had to look at the menu to see what it was (pea mousse with artichoke and almonds). It was completely inedible. Finally the amenities bag consisted of hand cream, face lotion and lip balm as well as the std toothpaste, socks, eyeshades etc. in the past there were far more items in the bag. Overall it feels like BA has cut costs and I had a reasonable deal on my flight price which I was willing to pay just to have a lie flat bed. I can't imagine if I paid $5K for this flight and had the same experience. I recently flew Emirates from SFO to Dubai in business class and it was comparable to first class in BA."
Cons: "The airplane was shaking all the flight"
Cons: "I booked a regular flight and at the end the system or dont know how, booked me PLUS ECONOMY, when I wanted to change my ticket date, it was so expensive and almost no dates were available. Also, you didnt give me chance to downgrade in order to change the dates more easily. I always fly through BA and I love the easy it is to change dates, but this time you disappointed me. I usualy choose BA because its easy and non expensive to change dates in my flight but now I may be open to book with other airlines."
Pros: "The flight was smooth from boarding to landing early at Heathrow."
Cons: "It was a fully booked flight, which means the person next to you tends to overflow into your seat"
Cons: "I paid 100$ because I had to cancel my request. It was a technical error of your reservation system which unexpectedly changed my return from the 5th of November to the 6th of November. The fine was unfair and you're required to refund me."
Pros: "It was a long flight but it seemed like the crew was constantly handing out drinks or food and the food was really good. There were plenty of recent movies and TV shoes to watch on the personal video screen."
Pros: "Liked the big 380 airbus. The food and entertainment was great on the long distance flight. The Airbus seats are more comfortable than others."
Cons: "2 hour delay because they said they didn't have the equipment to back the plane out of the maintenance hanger. Really? - at one of the big airports of Europe, they didn't have a tug vehicle."
Pros: "The staff were some of the friendliest I have encountered in recent traveling experiences. They were very attentive to every passenger."
Cons: "We only paid for economy seats, and unfortunately, it's hard to expect much more than what we got. The friendly service made up for the lack of comfort these seats provide."
Pros: "overall the flight was smooth. they had a video about collecting leftover coins, but but no one came by to collect, and no information as to where to leave your donation, so i just took my envelope and euros with me. price is the only reason I flew British airways again. If I could afford a better ticket I would fly a better airline."
Cons: "the armrest between the seats did not go up all the way. the storage area next to the window seat was dirty on the inside with food crumbs. after the recent news about bed bugs, i was uneasy on the flight. the actual flight was smooth, some turbulence but not the worst. they have absolutely the worst food ever. i have no idea what the awful purple stuff is, but they really should get rid of it. it is really unappetizing by the look of it. the carpet was coming loose in a number of places, just in our seat area. how long would it take to put some tacks in, or even some tape? bathroom was nasty and the sink was clogged.and full of water"
Pros: "We could tell upon boarding that the crew was focused on making our fight of 10 hours as pleasant as they could. They got along well together, which aided in providing excellent coordinated care to the passengers. Not an hour passed without being offered food, drinks, snacks, drinks, and more food. Even a time delay at take off due of a passenger leaving passport in the terminal was made up mid flight, for an ontime arrival in SFO. Would definitely look to British Airways for my next European trip."
Pros: "Entertainment options were varied and good."
Cons: "The Airbus seating in the tourist section is terrible. The seats are very close together, making it very difficult to get in and out, particularly if the person in front of you puts the seat back. On long flights we like to get up and move around a few times, and not only is it hard to get out of our seats to do this, there is little room to walk or stop to stretch. Heathrow London is tolerable if one is going to London, but as a place to change planes, it's exhausting. The various walks feel like mazes, and going from one terminal to another, even by tram, is time-consuming and tiring. We fly to Europe often, but we will try to avoid both British Airways (Airbuses, at least) and Heathrow."
Cons: "the only hard part was the boarding in London, very hard to hear the boarding directions. Kind of chaotic. BUT it all worked out"
Pros: "very friendly and efficient crew"
Cons: "mediocre food, chaotic boarding area"
Pros: "The air plane ran out of fuel we had to divert to San Jose we waited two hours because of weather and because the paperwork had the wrong pilots name so they wouldn't let the plane fly. Therefore we waited in the airport all night because neither British airways or American Airlines would help us We waited here all night with no sleep no one would give us a hotel or a meal we have now will be getting into London 24 hours later than planned and we will be out about $1000 in hotels in two hours we had booked that were non-cancelable . Multiple phone calls to British airline Waze and to American Airlines for all of the helpful"
Cons: "Wasn't allowed to check in prior to flight and got 2 middle seats on a A380"
Pros: "Most everything"
Cons: "Seat choice"
Cons: "BA cancelled the flight, did not reroute us, provided a phone number for tel aviv (closed for the weekend). Terrible customer service. And our ticket was bought thru vayama who also did not bother to help us. Bad bad customer service for BA."
Pros: "Entrees were OK"
Cons: "Not nearly enough snacks. They were pretty much out in business class half way through the flight"
Pros: "The seat was nice and movies onboard were entertaining."
Cons: "No personal AC vents; one small "meal" in the first hour followed by one small snack of popcorn a few hours later on 11-hour flight made it seem longer."
Pros: "We arrived safely at our destination. Our bags arrived at our destination. Plenty of room in the overhead compartment. Due to a security snafu unrelated to the airline, we arrived at the gate after boarding was over but the gate crew were gracious and welcoming and let us board. The male flight attendant was quite nice. The entertainment screen choices were decent, and the hand-held controller was a great improvement over the touch-screen variety. There were multiple lavatories available. There was a decent amount of space by the lavatories that we could use for stretching and exercising. The wrap they gave us for high tea was pretty good."
Cons: "Seats were very cramped. I was sitting on the right next to the window, and there was no room for me to extend my right leg while facing forward; I had to twist to my left and extend my legs under the middle seat in front of me (fortunately my wife was next to me so I could do this). In addition, the passenger seated in front of me decided to recline his seat, nearly knocking over my drinks in the process, which left me with very little usable space. I haven't ever felt that cramped on an international flight. The main meal was very low quality. I had the pasta and it was quite awful; the sides were quite bad, as well. One of the female flight attendants was rather testy and unpleasant throughout the flight. She, and another female flight attendant, seemed put out when passengers asked questions about the food offerings, as though we should already have known what was being served. One passenger had just woken up and seemed confused and the flight attendant was quite impatient with him. The flight attendants were quite stingy with the water and only poured out a little bit at a time; they also came very infrequently, which meant that we had to keep pressing the call button to ask for more (which made us feel bad about bothering them). They would not give us a whole bottle of water, saying that there was not enough, but did, when we asked, provide multiple plastic cups of water at a time, which just seemed wasteful (of cups, not water). The timing of drink service was also perplexing: they did not offer drinks at least 45 minutes before or after bringing the boxes of salty "movie snacks"."
Pros: "The food and entertainment met our expectations. The crew was attentive and provided good service throughout our flight."
Cons: "I prepaid for 3 seats in the front row of a coach section according to the diagram provided when I paid $75 per seat to reserve them. If I had known we would be placed back a row and not able to be more comfortable I would not have paid that fee. I do feel as though I was scammed for the $225 for reserving the seats."
Pros: "Crew was great and very helpful."
Cons: "The air pressure in the cabin didn't seem right, feet were swollen more than other international flights I have taken."
Pros: "A very long flight but decent food, good entertainment and leg room surprisingly not bad"
Pros: "The service and the people at this airline are by far the best experience I've had flying. Love the atmosphere of comfort they create. Good food served and entertainment provide a pleasant experience on long flights."
Cons: "The seating was a little small, but still comfortable."
Cons: "I was sitting in business class and the crew ignored the passengers for most of the flight. They sounded like they were having a party in the galley."
Pros: "-Crew was very attentive to the passenger who needed medical attention. -Captain spoke clearly and slowly. All crew members were very professional. -Cleaner and bigger WC rooms than most planes I've been on which is always a plus."
Cons: "-Food was mostly bland (e.g. vegetarian lasagna), overly seasoned (e.g. caramel/chocolate pudding dessert) or just not quite good (e.g. cole slaw). Lots of room for improvement here. Thank goodness I'd packed some snacks while we were still in Barcelona. -The earbuds wasn't very good in comparison to other in-flight earbuds I've used from other airlines. Sometimes staticky, noise cancellation was low, and wasn't as comfortable to wear."
Pros: "Travelled in business class so priority boarding was good Well planned boarding by different seat sections Crew attentive when needed but not intrusive"
Cons: "Food selection not great Video screen brightness not working on my screen and so very difficult to watch movies"
Pros: "Seats were cushioned and comfortable, entertainment screens were crisp and colorful, restrooms stayed clean and maintained throughout flight."
Pros: "My husband was entertained with the movies but I felt the selection was limited. The dinner was good but felt we were limited on drinks. Leg space was very good compared to other airplanes. Crew was excellent in getting passengers settled before the flight."
Cons: "The boarding area was too small of a space for so many people. The snack was served to late in the flight. Waiting to get into the bathroom was a bit long."
Pros: "The entertainment options were great with very good movie selections. The food was not as bad as I thought it'd be."
Cons: "Crew members came off as a bit racist and weren't nice at all. One of the flight attendants spilled liquid from my cup and didn't even apologize. Instead she blamed me for stacking stuff with my cup"
Cons: "We sat on the runway for 3 hours while they fixed a mechanical problem. This is understandable. However, what was not ok was that the last hour to hour and a half, we were delayed because 2 people decided to leave the airplane and staff were looking for their bags. I find it outrageous that BA inconvenienced 400+ passengers for the sake of 2! This should not happen no matter how much they paid for their seats."
Pros: "The in-flight food was good"
Cons: "Not being able to select seating for free at time of ticket purchase"
Pros: "The Service. The Attention"
Cons: "The Food."
Pros: "entertainment crew comfort"
Cons: "Terrible food, no option available online to order special meals, the restrooms were filthy and not looked after. We are never flying either British Airways or Aer Lingus in future. It was a big mistake !"
Pros: "NOT A DAMN THING"
Cons: "We booked on Kayak for a British Airways flight international--but it was a bait and switch. We ended up flying on American Airlines--the WORST! And our whole reason for booking British Airways was to avoid any US airline... We paid a premium, plus Kayak then sends you to a third party processor that charges you another $100 booking fee! American Airlines was terrible! Not even an entertainment center on on this flight (OLD PLANE THAT SHOULD BE TAKEN OUT OF SERVICE!). THIS WAS A BARE BONES PLANE> We will NEVER use KAYAK again."
Cons: "They ran out of food option so at a certain point the only option was mushroom risotto. Also my husban ordered a lactose free meal which he received but all the other snacks and meals on the flight included some type of lactose product."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "It took us over an hour to board. There were 3 lines. 3 attendants. One attendant would leave and we would be left standing there for 20 min. Then they lost my luggage. After 1 day they said they found it in Rome. Each day I would call and they said Rome wasn't sending it. They said they were in India and they couldn't do anything. Finally after 5 days I got it"
Pros: "American Airline agent in Madrid was very helpful during check-in by finding us comfortable seats together."
Cons: "We could not do check-in on-line. Same as on the way from SFO to London and then Madrid. This is absolutely unacceptable. We plan neither use British Airways ourselves nor recommend it to any of our friends or family members in the foreseen future."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable for such a long trip. Not because of the room available, which is okay, but because of the seat itself, which is too hard to be seated for so many hours. It should be a little softer."
Pros: "Overall the flight was good. We took off on time and arrived on time. The crew was very courteous and helpful. The food was ok. While I understand that we get what we pay for, the seats are too squished for such a long flight."
Cons: "I did not like the 10 hour layover in London especially because there appeared to be earlier flights. I also did not like sitting in the middle of two people who would not stop talking really loud on their cell phones."
Pros: "There was no food provided and there was no entertainment on this flight. Plus, this flight was on American Airlines; not British Air. I would give British Airways higher marks overall."
Pros: "The crew were exceptional and so was the food."
Cons: "The choices of entertainment could be better with much more choices and varieties."
Cons: "lost my luggage for no good reason"
Pros: "Really comfortable seats with sidewing headrests and more legroom than standard for economy seats. Cheerful, helpful staff. Food was really good, again compared to standard airline fare. wine to accompany meal."
Cons: "Bathroom ran out of toilet tissue. We were connecting BA flights at Terminal 5 and were not told of the scarcity of restaurants/shops at the satellite C gates (only Starbucks) and we had to return to A (20 mins roundtrip). BA customer service at C were indifferent about the issue and gave no help about how to get back."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable flight I have ever been on. British Airways website would not let me check-in in advance so me and my travel partner had possibly the worst seats on the entire plane. The seats were miserably uncomfortable. All of the people surrounding us were extremely inconsiderate. The person in front of me reclined their seat to the max, leaving me with inches of space in front of my face. My knees were sinking into the seat in front of me and I'm not even a tall person (5'5" with average length legs). I had to recline my seat a bit and when I did so, the person behind me kept kicking the back of my seat. The passenger to the left of me used both armrests available to him and left me with none. He was also a creepy person and asked my friend if she wanted to sleep on him."
Pros: "The crew, food, and comfort of the plane were all outstanding. The plane was the quietest and smoothest ride I have ever had. We were delayed almost 3.3 hours because of a change in planes that needed to take place earlier in the day, but there was plenty of notice ahead and some minor credit was given for food while waiting at the airport. All understandable."
Cons: "The baggage at the end of the flight was quite delayed and after waiting almost 1.5 hours was told that a significant portion of the baggage had not made it to SFO from London. Curious as the flight had been delayed 3.3 hours so one might assume there was plenty of time for all connecting baggage to make the transfer. All the agents on the ground were very helpful, however seriously understaffed and overwhelmed by the scale of the problem so passengers, already delayed 3.5 hours, lost about another 1 - 2 hours, no fun at 9:30pm."
