Pros: "Crew was very friendly and took good care of the passengers"
Pros: "The crew went the extra mile to accomodate my bag due to not having a seat in front of me to stow it. Also, Delta Comfort was exceptional!"
Cons: "We weren't alerted there was a chance of delays. Over two hours late."
Cons: "Better food offerings"
Pros: "Nothing to like."
Cons: "Cabin was way too hot despite complaining multiple times. Wi-Fi didn’t work the whole flight. The entertainment system was down. Seats uncomfortable. Inept crew. Worst flight I’ve ever taken."
Pros: "No food, late by hour"
Pros: "Excellent crew and clean aircraft"
Cons: "Sat on tarmac for 20 mins because we were early..."
Pros: "The crew was communicative and courteous."
Cons: "There was a flight delay in LAX due to a maintenance issue. The captain and crew informed us before we boarded the plane which was excellent. However, they could not figure out what was wrong with the planed and delayed the boarding for another 3 hours, putting our 1900 departure time to 2100."
Cons: "More comfortable than I expected for a 6 hour flight. 757 was quite spacious."
Cons: "I came from a long trip from France, the seat I was assigned was not reclinable, close to the restroom. I was totally exhausted from the previous flight, not able to sleep at all and when I tried to stretch my legs by sitting sidewards on the aisle a crew member keep bothering me to keep my legs out"
Pros: "Very comfortable, no complaints."
Pros: "The guy announcing the boarding was a hoot! Great sense of humor."
Cons: "No delays. And have the terminal bridge in working order"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, capt. had smooth take off and landing."
Cons: "Late gate change threw me for a loop. Had dinner with some friends in terminal before they caught a different flight. Walked to my gate only to find flight had changed to a different terminal and gate. Ended up fine because there was a delay with the lane switch, but made me a little anxious."
Cons: "Took off late. Other than that very comfortable and great experience"
Cons: "THE FLIGHT WAS 5 HOURS LATE"
Pros: "I really enjoyed the service on Delta. The entire process was better than what i've come to expect on airlines. My flight attendant was Kate, and she was awesome - super friendly, professional, thoughtful."
Pros: "It is a busy travel day and this flight was unbelievably smooth. The entire crew was competent and friendly."
Pros: "Overall service was great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours."
Pros: "Having three seats."
Cons: "I had three seats to myself! After getting elbowed all the way from Amsterdam to Minneapolis, I was tired and I slept three good hours."
Pros: "Better than average entertainment system for domestic flights."
Cons: "Boarding done against logic: my seat was in the last 5 rows of the cabin and I was scheduled to board in the final group. When I got to my seat the first 30 rows were nearly fully, but the back of the plane was half empty. The whole time the gate agent was urging passengers to move faster through the aisle, but Delta should really rethink its boarding strategy. It shouldn't take 40 minutes to board a 757."
Cons: "Kayak a howed my gate as something that didn’t exist at the terminal. I went to a kayak help desk to have a ticket printed that showed my TSA precheck because it wasn’t showing on my mobile ticket, and no one was there to help. I waisted for 10 mins. It then took me nearly 2 hours to get through security. I asked if I could get through quicker and was told I could not, despite it being passed my boarding time. I then ran to my gate where I waited for another 10 mins (no one was there, again) and then an employee came out and said they couldn’t let anyone board once the door was shut. He then directed me to the delta help desk (there was at least 20 people behind me who missed their flight). I then had to pay an additional $75 to get a later flight. The whole experience was awful and I’m disappointed with Kayak and the gate confusion, but mostly Delta and the lack of customer service."
Cons: "Sat on the runway for over an hour to get the gate. Unacceptable."
Pros: "The flight was very good, no complaints, good service and we flew on schedule"
Cons: "We were split into two boarding groups, one for priority and one for everyone else. This was good but the priority line was just a bit too far away for the announcements to be heard. This added a little bit of confusion. This was at gate B36 at JFK Airport's Terminal 4."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Take a long time to taxi to the gate & getting off the plane."
Pros: "Everything was great, easy boarding, great idea (board ahead of your zone if you check bag free at gate), courteous staff, good food choices, arrived ahead of schedule, good movies."
Pros: "Personality and charm of the flight attendants made it an especially relaxing trip."
Pros: "Fast boarding and complimentary snacks."
Cons: "I was seated next to a very large woman who came over the arm rest onto my seat."
Pros: "They were comprehensive and tried to move fast"
Cons: "Delayed flight because they didn’t had the crew ready"
Pros: "The movie selection is very good"
Cons: "Both boarding the flight and getting off the flight were severely delayed. The flight attendants also seemed to ignore half the plane when handing out drinks and when picking up trash. I had to flag someone down after they had simply walked past my row both times."
Cons: "Force me to take a bad seat"
Pros: "We were not happy with our flight my flight got cancelled 3 times I miss work they need to reimburse us and also reimburses the hotel cuz we had to stay at a hotel because they cancelled our flight three times and then our flight that we went out on Monday was late because of a flight attendant arriving late to the hotel to the airport"
Pros: "I didn't get a chance to get the gentleman's name at the gate, but he was able to get me on the earlier flight (since I had NO luggage and only 1 carry on that fit under my seat) and didn't charge me the stupid fee for filling a seat that was empty when I was giving up a seat on a later flight that would accommodate those who missed this earlier flight. Nice to see kindness in an industry that seizes fees on every opportunity."
Pros: "It got me to SFO earlyish"
Cons: "Was told to go away and wait for name to appear on screen for seat assignment. Was seated apart from travel companion. Got to sit next to folks with questionable hygiene, seat broken. Seatbelt broken. Stuck in back of plane window seat and was supposed to be “happy”. I was brilliantly ignored by crew. Seat back entertainment broken snd flight crew never answered the call button. Got to watch bag handlers throw and drop luggage like true gorillas. Delta, this time you truely are the worst. Wont book you again."
Pros: "We'd paid extra for main cabin so hot to choose seats and got in flight entertainment.. Staff were friendly."
Cons: "No free wifi."
Pros: "Very nice and friendly crew were very efficient."
Cons: "Very nice and friendly crew were very efficient. Unfortunately, we had to wait over 20 minutes to get into our gate because another plane was there, so we arrived late. Not DELTA's fault."
Pros: "The crew on Delta create a welcome atmosphere every time I have flown with them."
Pros: "The entertainment options and noticing the little touches that Delta is making to improve the brand and experience."
Cons: "Seems like there are legacy "attitude" issues with the crew. I sat on the aisle yesterday, and SEVERAL times I was bumped, quite rudely, by passing crew. In one instance, as they passed to pick up trash, they took two of my three items. They started walking on, and I tapped them as they passed to pick up the third. She brusquely turned and said: don't touch me to get my attention. No please; quite rude, and unnecessary."
Cons: "Horrible wait if nearly 30 minutes after landing"
Pros: "The boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Three hour departure delay. No explanation given. No apology."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for very 4 hrs sat in plane for 2.5 of those. Flight was delayed dye to strike in Barcelona. But replacement plane had fueling problems delaying the flight another 2 hours"
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Crew lacked any customer centricity, service was poor"
Cons: "Zero communication to the passengers as to why we were delayed for almost an hour sitting on the plane"
Pros: "They arrived on schedule."
Cons: "Seated in the rear middle seat. I had no options to select a seat when I checked in or made my reservation that wasn't an extra charge. I'mover 6' tall and middle seats are painful, especially cross country. Airlines need to be a little more attentive to their customers' needs. If a passenger is taller than average, and the flight is more than 60 minutes, provide comfortable seating at no extra charge. If a customer has a short layover, which their system knows about since it is the sourve of the flight plans, put the customer toward the front of the aircraft since these flights are habitually late and customers end up having to sprint through airports to try to make connections."
Pros: "Crew was polite"
Cons: "Rocky takeoff"
Pros: "Decent food and drink. Flight attendants were very nice, although not quite as excellent as on the other Air France flights which I had on this trip"
Cons: "The seat is angled when fully reclined so there's a feeling that you'll slide off the seat, making it difficult to find a good position to sleep. Video screen seemed quite large. Headphones were noise canceling and worked well"
Cons: "The food was not as usual."
Cons: "J’ai eu à payer un bagage supplémentaire sur internet à 160 euros. Mon compte a été débité et à l’aéroport de Dakar les agents au comptoir me disent qu’ils ne retrouvaient pas le payement du troisième bagage. J’ai été obligé de repayer le bagage comptant à 190€"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "Seats were too close together."
Cons: "Entertainment worked sporadically"
Pros: "Great crews, excellent customer service"
Pros: "The entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Seats are so cramped. I'm 5'3" and could use either arm rest because both people on either side spilled into my seat."
Pros: "Not being charged for my first bag of luggage"
Pros: "I really liked my seat, but it was one of the only ones that didn't have a USB port."
Cons: "See above. Overall, very nice experience."
Pros: "Very nice crew. Nice meal service and drink service throughout. Great choice of entertainment."
Pros: "On time, staff was nice."
Cons: "Not many options and not even a glass of champagne. That’s a minimal requirement. No sparkling water. Just very limited"
Pros: "Crew was nice although one fellow was a little too “nervous” and looked bossy"
Cons: "Food was awful. Asked for vegan meal they got it half right, as vegan is not vegetarian. And the second meal or snack as they say was not vegetarian or vegan at all."
Cons: "My first flight was cancelled my return flight was delayed by 5 hours They made me check my carry on even though it was with in the size limit which cost 85 euros and when trying to ask why the staff was extremely rude and not helpful worst flight experience I’ve ever had"
Pros: "Leg space was great, food was delicious, alcohol served 3-4 times, and the in-flight entertainment was spectacular. I saw 4 movies and slept somewhat comfortably for once!"
Pros: "The entertainment has great selection. The crews were much friendier than the flight from SFO to Paris."
Cons: "The seat padding is rather thin."
Pros: "Cheap ticket"
Cons: "The fact that you cheapskates don't allow credit or refund is downright usury. I didn't take that flight because of medical issues that caused me to cancel my trip 2 weeks in advance. I pleaded with you to be able to take a credit, to no avail. You lost a customer."
Pros: "My seat"
Cons: "The food was cold. We were served about 40 minutes after most of the plane got their food. The overhead compartments kept opening by themselves through out the flight. Food was horrible."
Cons: "Separated me and my wife for the whole flight! Could not accommodate us together. This reservation was made over 6 weeks ago !!!"
Pros: "The food, beverages and choices of movies, entertainment There was a medical emergency that caused the flight to land in Canada. This was handled very professionally - I hope the passenger ended up getting the care needed and is doing well."
Pros: "The crew worked hard, but the food was below the French standards."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2.5 hours and the passengers spent this time in the cabin without a/c."
Cons: "Staff where so unhelpful that I missed my flight and then refused to offer any assistance as to how I could remedy this situation. This cost me over €180 which is a weeks food and stay for me. Don't fly with these guys or with air Croatia."
Pros: "It was a wonderful flight and service . Hospitality and welcoming."
Cons: "Nothing everything was amazing ."
Cons: "Screen broke half way through flight. Food was poor"
Pros: "Food and service was good and price was acceptable"
Cons: "Very long route"
Cons: "They were unfreindly and rude."
Pros: "Nothing... and we were late which made me miss my connecting flight and I wasn’t reimbursed because it was with a different airline"
Cons: "See above and the food was disgusting"
Cons: "I was asked to change my seat repeatedly"
Pros: "Everything was very prefect and would love to fly again."
Cons: "Some toilet facilities out of order and some slow service"
Cons: "Cramped, no cabin bag space, late departure with no communication and lost checked luggage. Not a great Air France experience."
Pros: "Good boarding procedure."
Cons: "Nothing much to add for a short journey."
Pros: "Crew was welcoming"
Cons: "Space between the seats was too small."
Pros: "Short, lots of leg space"
Pros: "The Crew was the only thing that stuck out. Associates had Way more patience than i."
Cons: "Late takeoff, priority seating happens same time as general boarding, two pieces of lost luggage"
Cons: "Everything. AF changed seats without authorization or notification, separating a mother from her 3 year old daughter. Their entire attitude was "nothing to be done, now board plane and leave" no compensation was offered, nothing done to remedy their mistake or rude behavior and treatment"
Pros: "The fact that the plane made it to SFO"
Cons: "Downgrade without notice or consent separating family. Paid full fare for family to travel business class together. AF without our knowledge downgraded one member, separating a mother from her 3 year old daughter. They offered no compensation, no apology, and CDG ground crew was terribly rude. All anyone said was, nothing to be done, now please Leave"
Pros: "Cheap aircraft, not even headsets"
Cons: "Dirty aircraft, I expect more when I pay a lot"
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth and the crew friendly. Flight ran on time."
Cons: "Unloading the baggage took over 90 minutes, and there was no explanation for the delay and nobody from Air France in sight on the ground in Boston."
Cons: "Meal choice missing kosher non-gluten combination."
Cons: "The company failed to transfer my checked-in bag to the next flight during the transfer apparently"
Pros: "Friendly crew; comfort; punctuation. Fast boarding"
Cons: "Simple food - very small amounts. No entertainment."
Pros: "It was a fine flight"
Cons: "no specific feedback"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "Old airplane with very low amenities. Plane still had ashtrays"
Pros: "Air France is the worst company I have ever flown with. They changed our seats last minute. They where late both flights. Not worth the stress if your layovers are short. Also they took my passport with no explanation of why into another room with out my permission."
Pros: "You get everything you would expect in this kind of flight in term of meals, comfort and entertainment."
Cons: "The flight left half an hour late because of weather conditions. But it is more an airport issue rather than an airline one."
Pros: "No complain about Air France. The service and food are very good. Enjoy it."
Cons: "Our return flight is Milan--CDG--SFO. The transfer time at CDG is 1 hour. The line at CDG is incredibly long. We barely made it. IMPOSSIBLE for tax return. Very bad flight connection experience."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient, the flight was on schedule, crew was nice."
Cons: "The temperature for this leg of the trip seemed very cold. I wore 2 sweaters & a jacket plus the blanket. Hard to rate entertainment (I wasn't aware of any)."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Provide coffee at least"
Cons: "50 minute wait for a gate to deplane. How could there not be a gate at 10:30 pm? It’s not like our arrival was a surprise!?"
Pros: "They had the AC on while we were waiting on the plane at the gate for 1.5hours"
Cons: "That the flight was delayed for 2 hours, information was inaccurate/missing, they knew we'd miss our connections but did nothing except, "they'll deal with it in San Francisco" and when we landed there was no one in sight to help us--no escorts/expedite to gates, no one to tell us where to get rebooked, and after going back and forth between terminals, waited in line an hour to get rebooked on a series of flights that would get me in 22hrs later after my original flight."
Pros: "The seats were decent for a domestic flight. Everything was timely."
Cons: "More food. Better entertainment."
Cons: "salt free option for snacks; flight could have not been delayed but that’s not the flight crew’s fault. winds at sfo caused us to delay our takeoff"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and thoughtful."
Cons: "Seating is too tight. Hard to believe that in 2019, major airlines still have seats without any electrical or UBS outlets for charging devices."
Pros: "Everyone was so nice and I appreciated the chance to pre-board with my toddler! Thank you."
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "My belongings stolen"
Pros: "Entertainment system was up to date with personal screens."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by an hour. The new departure time was moved twice after we were already invited for boarding. Attendants failed to communicate new times or make any announcements absolutely whatsoever. Just stood in line to board for almost an hour."
Cons: "Was missed due to delayed flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. The food was not great. There is not a lot of space in these planes, and it was a long flight. There is no power supply."
Cons: "No signage for checking bags. Was total cluster. No one knew where to take bags or what line to be in. Employees kept telling us we were in the wrong line but didn’t seem to tell us what was the correctly line."
Cons: "Aircraft at least in our section was very cold the whole flight. My young son was very cold even in a sweatshirt. I was very cold in a sweater, shirt, and jeans. I asked a crew member if they might have a blanket to cover my son, he brusquely replied “No blankets, no pillows!” So we just froze for 5.5 hours."
Cons: "headphone jack defective but more importantly the SFO arrival gate not available for over 45 minutes...."
Pros: "Flight attendants actually seemed to care about what they were doing. Seats were pretty comfy for once."
Cons: "Flight delayed with no explanation or apologies. Putting two and two together from the airport monitors it looks like they had to swap planes due to a scheduling or maintenance issue. Just another chapter in the neverending saga of delayed American airlines flights"
Cons: "Because they canceled my flight and i had to buy another ticket for 380$ and after that I realized my chair was available and i took a picture. It was really bad and i never choose again American Airlines."
Cons: "the connection time between flights was NOT adequate especially considering I had to go through customs! AA did page me and had a representative (I think his name was Brian) waiting for me to help me get to my connection. He gave me a bright red/orange tag. I still hit some barriers. I was stopped in security and my carry on was put aside to be searched. It sat and sat . I explained to the man I had to go. He said he was working alone, so I had to wait. I was ready to leave it and just run to catch the flight, but the security man said I wasn't allowed to do that. He finally called someone else to search my bag (nothing found) I did make it...barely!"
Cons: "no inflight entertainment no outlets"
Pros: "The only positive thing to be said for the flight was that the seat was not uncomfortable."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work during entire flight; crew (stewards) lied to passengers on the ground that it would work after takeoff, only admitting after we were in the air that they had been told by the technicians it would not work at all. Crew did not respond to call lights when pressed (in First Class), nor did they know how to operate the power system."
Pros: "Flight had very few people on it so everyone could stretch out for the 6 hour flight."
Cons: "The original flight turned around 45 minutes in and I missed my connecting flight. AA refused to try and get me on another flight the same day so I could make it to Sydney on the original day I was supposed to land. We waited 2/3 hours to board a whole new flight, and AA hardly compensated. If anything they should’ve provided a meal at least instead of a bag of pretzels. Flight crew seemed very inconvenienced and it showed."
Pros: "Flexibility and helpfulness of staff."
Cons: "I no longer fit in the seats because they keep shrinking the pitch"
Pros: "The boarding process was ok."
Cons: "The entertainment system failed again."
Pros: "Quick and did good job"
Cons: "After flying Japan Airlines I wish there were more free food and entertainment"
Cons: "No personal TV for entertainment"
Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "The seats were not as good as the ones on my BA flight to Heathrow and then Rome. Also, cross country flight but no in flight entertainment. Arrived early in PHL and American would not let me move up to an earlier PHL-SFO flight since it was a code share booked with BA. Should not be my fault as when booking it indicated all four of my flights were with BA. Once booked it indicated the return flights were code share with AA. American should have allowed me on the earlier flight. That would have opened a seat on the scheduled flight which had people waiting on standby."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "For a flight five hours or more I was disappointed that there was no complimentary food. It otherwise it was fine"
Pros: "blanket made it comfortable"
Cons: "No entertainment options"
Pros: "I really enjoyed the movies on this flight and they had us change to better seats before we took off"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Surprisingly, AA provided the worst experience of the overall itinerary, compared to Aer Lingus and Iberia. The AA plane was outdated, cramped legroom - despite having purchased an "upgraded seat" and departed 1hr late"
Pros: "No entertainment nothing"
Pros: "The flight crew was great and it was a very smooth landing."
Cons: "Had to pay extra for seats so we could sit together, near the front of the plane (not really, and no bathroom nearby, very small seats with zero legroom). we were delayed twice (40m then 1h10m) then told to go to a different terminal because now our flight WAS leaving on time! so we hauled over there only to be delayed again several times. we know it was a weather thing, but just wish there was more accurate info about when we would actually take off. seats on outgoing flight from SFO to CLT were GREAT, very roomy, comfortable. Coming back- not so much."
Cons: "Before I booked the flight I noticed it was only on time 53% of the time. True to that number we were delayed almost an hour before takeoff. Why schedule fights so close if almost half the time it's delayed? Something needs to change."
Pros: "Pilot did a great job coming into SFO airport. Had to abort landing and do it again."
Cons: "Unless we slept through it, no food or snack was served. It was a 6+ hour flight. I was awake for water and soda offerings but not even nuts. To be fair, I may have been asleep but I woke up every time a drink was offered. We came from a connecting international flight with no time to get a meal. We grabbed a bagel as we rushed through the airport. I didn't pick the flight so we couldn't have more time."
Pros: "Good communication"
Cons: "I don't understand why you boarded the flight when it seemed you knew there would be a delay to take off to SFO. We boarded only to learn we would sit at the gate for 30 min and the wait on the tarmac for anothe 40. Why not just delay the flight an board an hour later? It would have been a lot more comfortable in the terminal."
Cons: "That fact that on both ways they changed our flights which either we got to the destination late or we had to run across the airport so we don't miss our flights"
Cons: "Multiple delays, ended up having to change flights, then 2nd flight was also delayed. The only silver lining was the customer service representative, I think named Sofie(?) was astoundingly wonderful and helpful."
Cons: "People still using mobiles as we were taking off. Crew seemed not too bothered."
Cons: "Customer service was not great. They canceled my flight without any great reason. While I learned about another situation regarding my flight, I was not treated well on the phone by costumer service. I don't think I want to fly with American Airlines again."
Pros: "Nothing absolute nightmare .. no water .. are you serious"
Cons: "Sits were not comfortable."
Cons: "My flight was delayed for 3 hours and they where rude about my flight being delayed"
Pros: "Routine flight. No issues on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "Paid extra for exit row seats, felt they were not worth the extra money. The extra legroom was great but the armrest did it move and I felt like I was sitting in a box."
Cons: "As I mentioned in my last comment I was seated at the back of the plane on over four and a half hour flight by the time the food got to me they had ran out that I mention that I'm a diabetic with high blood pressure so I have to sit and suffer for over 3 hours will never ever fly American again"
Cons: "The plane was freezing and made me very uncomfortable! I asked the flight attendant for a blanket and she told me no. Even though I saw some in first class.... I would have purchased one. It was very hard for me to fall asleep because of how cold I was. Comfort is one of the main things I expect in a 4 plus hour flight."
Pros: "Things went ok"
Cons: "The plane was old"
Pros: "There was no warning until departure time that flight was delayed for two hour. Some other american flights were delayed much as four hour or more."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and no reason was given. I had to buy new flights on Southwest and ended up having to pay an extra $200 in order to get home for work on Monday."
Pros: "The time and the route and seat pitch."
Cons: "Food and crew."
Cons: "Boarding process.."
Pros: "The flight was relatively on time and the crew was nice"
Cons: "The food was not the British Airways high quality"
Cons: "Entertainment didn’t work, big delay broken seat"
Cons: "The entertainment system wasnt working on the first flight, and had poor content on the second flight."
Pros: "Wonderful crew and flight. A380 smooth and quiet"
Cons: "Vacation was cancelled due to illness."
Pros: "Entertainment was a little better than usual, but could have had more current movies. Food was OK. Nothing special, but more than acceptable. I like the ice cream. Although we had a late start, we got to San Francisco pretty much on time."
Cons: "I don't like being scrunched in a little seat for 10 or 11 hours, but then I am not willing to pay for a bigger seat and more leg room."
Pros: "Great crew, very friendly"
Cons: "Prior to departure, we were told to check in our carry-on luggage due to flight overbooking..... Turned out that there were lots of overhead compartments/bins were totally empty. We were not prepared for that so cluld not pack personal items accordingly"
Pros: "Outstanding service"
Cons: "Down onevtoilet from get go was unfortunate but not a big deal until both toilets on our side were out.."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by an hour."
Pros: "Six years ago, after a very bad experience with this airline, I swore never to use BA again. However, this year, because of my children, I found myself on this airline again and had a very positive experience. The flight was on time, luggage was transferred without a hitch, the food was excellent and in-flight entertainment had a great variety to choose from. The 747 provided a very steady flight experience. Personnel were reasonably helpful. Continue this kind of service - it will help you remain successful."
Pros: "The drinks were great, however the food specifically the salmon meal (Great Britain breakfast) seemed to be missing something. The stewardess mentioned my partner to have the chicken as there was only a portion of the meal. But, I paid £24 for the meal. Although, the vegan and veggie meals were great!"
Cons: "Next time I will pay more attention to the two row seating and pay for seats in that area of the plane. Other than that, good service."
Cons: "the flight delayed a lot and i missed my connection flight as a result"
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 $5K for this flight and had the same experience. I recently flew Emirates from SFO to Dubai in business class and it was comparable to first class in BA."
Cons: "The airplane was shaking all the flight"
Cons: "I booked a regular flight and at the end the system or dont know how, booked me PLUS ECONOMY, when I wanted to change my ticket date, it was so expensive and almost no dates were available. Also, you didnt give me chance to downgrade in order to change the dates more easily. I always fly through BA and I love the easy it is to change dates, but this time you disappointed me. I usualy choose BA because its easy and non expensive to change dates in my flight but now I may be open to book with other airlines."
Pros: "Great, very comfortable, easy transatlantic flight"
Pros: "The flight was smooth from boarding to landing early at Heathrow."
Cons: "It was a fully booked flight, which means the person next to you tends to overflow into your seat"
Cons: "I paid 100$ 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: "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: "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."
Pros: "very friendly and efficient crew"
Cons: "mediocre food, chaotic boarding area"
Cons: "For the 2nd time, neither me or my husband got our food choice...it has happened everytime we have flown. And we purchased full fare business class seats! I can understand once and maybe for one of us but it has happened EVERY time. MOST IMPORTANTLY, I sadly left my laptop onboard and I called the number for SFO BA Lost and Found for 48 hours....every 20 minutes. NO ONE answered and no one returned my messages. I finally had to drive back to the airport to talk to a human....a 5 hr round trip. No laptop turned in and it didn't turn back up in London. So clearly, cleaning crew stole it. That in its own right is a problem but NO ONE returning my calls. Completely unacceptable. I got the duty manager's email and emailed him TWICE over TWO days before he returned my email. I highly doubt I will fly BA again, I'm afraid."
Cons: "Legroom is extremely tight."
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"
Pros: "Flight crew was incredibly nice and professional. They were particularly attentive to another passenger that had food allergies. The seats were comfortable, with neck support and low back pillows. The over-intercom announcements were just enough to keep passengers aware of relevant info. There were lots of entertainment choices on the tv in the back of the seat. The first meal was really good (pasta). Thank you for a great flight."
Cons: "The boarding gate was not announced until very close to boarding time and boarding seemed a bit of a free-for-all. The second meal/ 'hot snack' of a pizza pocket was gross."
Cons: "Wasn't allowed to check in prior to flight and got 2 middle seats on a A380"
Pros: "Economy window seat on A380 has extra storage unit underneath window (similar to business class). This was really convenient. Still some room underneath seat in front but entertainment box would block large items. Quiet flight no unnecessary announcements from crew. Boarding was ok as I am a priority member."
Cons: "Food is not as good as some other economy flights I have taken. Entertainment (movies) were ok but not great."
Pros: "Lots of movies, excellent quality."
Cons: "Very crowded, otherwise okay."
Pros: "Most everything"
Cons: "Seat choice"
Cons: "The lady at the check in counter changed the seat I paid to reserve from the front to the back of the plane without informing me"
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: "Entertainment selection"
Cons: "Snacks were carb heavy and protein low"
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"."
Cons: "The BA ticket counter did not open early enough with enough staff to get all passengers checked in time. As such, the plane was delayed and we missed this connecting flight. Other people were in the same boat. We had no chance to make our connection but others did. While the flight crew offered weak apologies advising they had no control, they made no effort to help connecting passengers in ways the could control. Such as asking all passengers to remain seated allowing connecting passengers off the plane first. Something I've seen done on many other airlines numerous times."
Cons: "It was difficult to get our seat assignments."
Pros: "This was my first time on an Airbus A380 and I must say that I'm still in awe of how an aircraft this large can be so quiet and smooth, let alone get in the air. Boarding was smooth. Entertainment was great and the food (depending on what you got) was okay. The inflight crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "Economy seats are very uncomfortable. I am 6'4 and there isn't that much space. It's even worse when you have a kid sitting in front with his seat reclined all the way back - so the little room I had to start with became even worse. Not to mention he kept rocking his chair back in forth, passed gas about 5 times, felt the need to stretch his arm behind him 3 times so his hand was blocking my screen. I really never got comfortable in my seat during the 11 hour flight. For a plane this large, i would of expected a little bit more comfort, especially when I felt it on AA 777"
Pros: "The crew was very efficient"
Cons: "The was really bad."
Pros: "Nothing to talk about. Entertainment had many choices"
Cons: "Food was pathetic"
Pros: "Although they left late , they made up for it and arrived only 5 min late. Although a huge plane, the boarding process worked out fine. Service was good and entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "Food could be a bit better,"
Pros: "Cancel my flightthey canceled my flight and provided absolutely no help in getting me another flight. I was left stranded in the middle of Italy"
Cons: "they canceled my flight and provided absolutely no help in getting me another flight. I was left stranded in the middle of Italy"
Pros: "Very smooth ride, good food. Glad to fly again."
Pros: "BA crew was amazing--friendly, courteous, helpful. There was always plenty of food--most of it good, and they certainly kept us hydrated with trays of juice. Free everything: wine, movies, music, etc"
Cons: "There was nothing different that could have been done. We had a 5 hour layover after our flight from Shannon. That was ok because we ate, shopped and generally used the time. But we were 1/1/2 hours late taking off, then had to wait to land because we were out of order for the gates. It turned into a 23 hour day."
Pros: "Fantastic service and entertainment. One of my best flights in years."
Cons: "1st service was good. Second just ok."
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: "The Service. The Attention"
Cons: "The Food."
Cons: "No hard liquor. Only wine"
Pros: "El Al flightcrew was courteous and friendly, and the aircraft was new."
Cons: "Horrible leg room, poor seat comfort, poor entertainment choices, food and drink service was inconsistent. El Al airline lost not one but BOTH of my checked bags, and the number they gave me to call to open a baggage claim had no answer and a full voice mail box. I will never fly El Al again no matter how cheap."
Pros: "Yes crew was amazing and bathrooms remained clean for entire flight"
Pros: "The crew was nice and it wasn't a full flight so we had room."
Cons: "The food wasn't very good and the headphones were a bit uncomfortable"
Cons: "More space and larger selection of movies and shows."
Pros: "Crew was polite and courteous. Flight arrived on time despite late takeoff."
Cons: "Reading light and entertainment system did not work the entire flight despite repeating attempts from crew to restart system. This is a 12 hour flight and with out overhead light and / or entertainment, one cannot do much. Could have been good also if there was wifi, like other airlines have."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "The plane was falling apart and there was no Ac. Dirty plane too. I was surprised how poor it was."
Pros: "No, the crew wasn't amazing, and no, the seats weren't super-comfortable. Nothing especially good about this flight, but it did take off and land safely, which is the main thing."
Pros: "Crew, service, clean. Free wifi."
Cons: "Nothing . Perfect flight."
Pros: "The seat was not super comfortable.I was grestful that I sat next to a very nice person."
Cons: "The vegan food wasn't very tasty.There was a very limited choice of entertainment.The staff was excellent;very friendly and helpful."
Pros: "I had a good experience purchasing my El Al ticket through Kayak. I was able to select my seat--exit row seats at no extra cost! (although the ticket was admittedly expensive). El Al itself was fine. Service was fine. Food was fine for airplane food. (The bread was actually good, much better than the food on America airlines in general). El Al is known for their tight security and we certainly experienced that. However, I found myself NOT annoyed by it. Because I and my traveling partner were not Jewish or Israeli, we were singled out and interrogated with extra questions. This doesn't sound good but it meant we didn't have to wait in the regular line and kind of got the VIP treatment. We were treated very nicely. Someone went out of their way to get us a seat while we waited for them to inspect the dust particle samples on our wallet and shoes. TSA makes my blood boil but the security through El Al was somehow a pleasant experience. Overall, I was satisfied."
Cons: "The seats were a little narrow. Unlike other reviewers, I did not find the crew particularly friendly."
Pros: "Nothing to get imprese"
Cons: "Good attention, standard flight"
Pros: "Comfort Crew was nice"
Cons: "Food bad taste Small tv screens Bad quality"
Cons: "Delay, food, entertainment"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Seating atrocious. Considering there first. Was given row 40 then at boarding was moved to 55. 6 rows from back. As domeone who suffers epilepsy and cancer and other health issues it was unpleasant sitting amidst lots of noisy children. I asked hostess if there were two seats up front was told “absolutely not” during flight i went and sat at back on crews seat just to make it easier was told to get off not permitted. Then i gave up. I fly a lot for work but wont be flying Thai again. Sorry disappointing. Ps I told crew member anout health issues and she was not interested. So cheers."
Cons: "Storage is too small for trolley or even a computer bagpack"
Pros: "Crew and boarding and price"
Cons: "Charging got coffee is a bit much. NO foot room"
Pros: "It was my first flight with El Al and would do it again the attention of all the stewardess was excellent above all their attitude to please passengers."
Pros: "the part I liked was that the plane didn't crash."
Cons: "other than the pilot doing his job, the experience of flying on this flight (operated by Arkia) wasn't up to any basic standards. this began when the boarding started - we were escorted to our busses which was to take us to the plane itself. however there was no bus. apparently the bus was right around the corner but its perfectly aligned stop near the doors was hindered by a truck that took about a third of the spot. so for some reason instead of simply allowing passengers to walk 3 meters, we had to stand in a small inclosed area for about 15 min with no seats for the older people. once we actually boarded it was chaos. people stuffed their luggage in the overheads in such a way that they didn't close, couldn't find their seats and we're stuck in the isle waiting for others to find a place for their luggage. this happens, sure, but there was no staff in sight to assist and instead they were on the microphone telling people to clear the isle and sit down, like we're on a bus... why not have people board the plane in groups and areas? the bus did two rounds of bringing people to the plane anyway, why not do this smartly and devide passengers into boarding groups, for our and the staffs ease? Finally everyone were in their seats and the plane took off. this is a very short flight of 45 min. and I understand it's a low cost company but during almost half of the flight you just hear the staff on the speakers reading out commercials, offering to buy cigarettes and whatever, telling how they have the best prices(!). finally we land, and instead of requesting everybody remain in their seats until the doors open, like the staff does on every single flight I've ever been on in my life, the guy on the mic says some stupid joke. TLDR : the whole flight felt like it was operated and staffed by teenagers, and not the responsible and bright kind. I am very happy we arrived safe because the staff made me doubt the pilots abilities as well. nothing to say about the passengers, they're israeli so anyone who has flown with them know what it feels like. just put your headphones in, it'll be over soon."
Pros: "Staff was great!"
Cons: "The seats were so tight I felt claustrophobic and I'm only 5'4". The food was not very appetizing."
Pros: "All was cool!"
Cons: "All was ok, flight was a bit late, but fine"
Cons: "To small plan"
Cons: "CHECK IN TOOK VERY LONG TIME"
Cons: "I didn't ply . I did check in . Then they ask me to pay 70$ for my baggage because it's nut El AL it's different compani - up . In the email it's say I have 1 free baggage. I was were upset so I didn't fly . I will be were happy to get answer from kayak . Thank u BTW I fix all my ticket whit kayak . That what really neck me upset"
Pros: "The food was good and the crew on board was pretty good."
Cons: "I am always treated like I'm a bad person since I'm not Jewish. However, this time I was expecting it, so I wasn't surprised. However, the planes are SUPER out of date and there were only a few channels and on the way to Israel most of them were in hebrew. For a 12 hour flight on the way back, there wasn't really anything to do since the 4 movies they had just kept repeating themselves and I didn't really like 2 of them."
Pros: "11 hr flight Business and 1st class were full, so we decided to upgrade to premium coach. There was plenty of leg room, however you are right beside the bathroom and the galley so don't think about resting cause the lights flash the whole trip"
Cons: "That the passengers left such a mess and I felt sad, over all a great fought."
Pros: "It was FREEZING. I have never experienced. The like on any airline. It was like sitting in a refrigerator for five hours- made it a very uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "on our way back' from Prague to TLV the ground crew decided that the "rules" for baggage has changed. they charged me for one "Trolli" suitcase because they desided that camera bag "counts" as suitcase . BAD experience. Won't fly with them again."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Nice service"
Cons: "Dinner was a sandwich"
Pros: "Nothing was particularly good."
Cons: "ElAl canceled my return flight from Tel Aviv with little advance warning and no reason given, I suspect because of underbooking. They successfully rerouted through Boston, but then messed up re-ticketing in Logan. Food edible but unappetizing. Ancient 767 with no seat-based, on-demand movies (they played on ceiling-mounted screens). No Wifi. Customer service on phone had huge hold times. Personnel were not available between flights. Will not fly again."
Pros: "Entertainment system did not work at my seats on both legs on my round flight."
Pros: "The flifht was not fully booked which obviously had a positive impact on crew and service"
Pros: "Mechanical problems, grounded in montreal for 4 hours, no food or water or air conditioner. Antique entertainment system. Sad part is I live in Montreal and I wasn't allowed to get off the plane, I had to sit on for an extra 4 hours and then fly to Toronto only to get on another flight back to Montreal, because of dumb Quebec beauracy, And pathetic élal incompetent management."
Pros: "Food was fine, Accommodations for collecting the garbage should be sooner so passenger can get out of seat . Beverages offered were a plus."
Cons: "Seats were very crowded and tight. Passengers should not be charged for preferred seating."
Pros: "I had purchased a flight ticket to leave china on the 10 January and that was clear on my ticket. Once at the areport in chengdu ( after a flight from Tel Aviv to Beijing and Beijing to chengdu) I was told that my flight to Sydney was leaving on 11 January. I had to stay in chengdu for an extra 26 hours and not 2 hours 40 as it was clearly mentioned on the ticket I have purchased. I feel I was cheated and I am not satisfied"
Pros: "the crew were trying to do a good job."
Cons: "el al changed the aircraft at the last minute. check in and boarding were very late, slow and stressfull, as they kept kicking people out of the flight beacuase the aircraft was smaller."
Cons: "My flight was operated by American Airlines but it wasn't clear to me on the e-ticket so I went to elal terminal. By the time elal staff realized I wasn't on that flight it was too late to get to AA so I missed my flight"
Cons: "Plane left late and arrived late. As a result we missed our connecting flight and, because of the impending typhoon in Hong Kong, had to be rerouted via Auckland on Air New Zealand. As a result it took us an extra 24 hours to get home."
Cons: "Food was horrible and was down to one option by the time the crew got to the back of the plane. Security for this airline is ridiculous and the staff are incredibly rude."
Cons: "when buying with Kayak, one can not order a seat in the airplane. the flight was full and i had to wait until every body boarded the plane. i waited 2 hours for it. it would be nice if you can send a link to the official site to choose a seat or a reminder to do so 2 days before the flight. thank you"
Cons: "Elal changed the airplane to a tiny plane run by some charter company. The seats were tiny. No legs pace and the next passenger had half his body on me. El-Al is complete disgrace and I hope never to fly with them again, which is a shame, since I am from Israel. In any case, I paid full price, and received something worse than I would expect from any low-cost company. El-Al should be ashamed."
Cons: "We got to Barcelona about an hour before the flight to Charlotte. There were 50 of us. They put us on a bus took us to the plane had us wait on the bus for an hour. Told us we couldn't get on the plane and we needed to get new tickets. It took 4 hours to get our backs and new tickets and the customer service was terrible they didn't want to help us."
Pros: "El Al, flight that is secured well Flight officer shared during the flight few tips about berlin."
Cons: "Flight was on Terminal 1, old and with mess and queues that are not organized. El Al Fly web site is horrible, can register well, lot of mistakes, at the end had to call few time. Had to add 160$! For 2 suitcases and seat arrangements (seat near my wif), so this is not low cost flight at the end. Missing water and small snacks during the flight."
Pros: "Was a very bad and negative experience. I fly btw Israel and NYC about 5 times a year, I will not fly again with El Al because of the terrible service and lack or respect for a plane full of 200+ customers."
Cons: "Plane left Ben gurion 7 hours late. No apologies offered. Zero customer service. No snacks or food or even smallest attempt made to improve the experience. Pathetic and dumb way to treat paying customers."
Pros: "The stewardess were very sweet and tried to get it working for us"
Cons: "The lights above our seats and the screens did not work at all during the flight. The screens were not such a problem as the stewardess gave us ipads, but the non working lights were very frustrating."
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Flight was late. Old aircraft. Very little space between the seats."
Cons: "Was late to leave- late to arrive- slow boarding- no explanation from crew Ppl moved all around- loud drunk ppl- crew don't keep order- poorly managed."
