Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew were really nice and seemed to genuinely care about the passengers, were approachable and were very happy to chat with passengers and help them out."
Cons: "The food options always seem to run out by the back of the plane and this time didn't match the menu they gave me at the start of the flight, not that I minded because the option I was given was pretty tasty."
Pros: "It was empty so we were told we could move around in the empty seats"
Cons: "Food was basically carbs, carbs and more carbs (especially if vegetarian). Some diversity, please. Staff forgot requests on a couple of occasions (Economy Delight cabin)."
Pros: "The roomie seats, the USB port, and in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Child free section"
Cons: "My bag was damaged in transit"
Pros: "Top crew very friendly and professional"
Cons: "Business class food was bizarre for breakfast - a Mexican taco??? Asked for eggs from economy to be back later up"
Pros: "The flight itself was good! The one from London to Delhi was better than from JFK to London"
Cons: "I wasn’t told about my baggage were being delivered through different airlines the other day!"
Pros: "- Presence of entire box sets of some TV shows was a nice touch that I made good use of."
Cons: "- EVERY damn movie is prefaced by 4 minutes of ads. - The touchscreens (at least in economy) are slow resistive screens that are horrible for fine control gestures (like slightly changing the volume or position)"
Pros: "- Presence of entire box sets of some TV shows was a nice touch that I made good use of."
Cons: "- EVERY damn movie is prefaced by 4 minutes of ads. - The touchscreens (at least in economy) are slow resistive screens that are horrible for fine control gestures (like slightly changing the volume or position)"
Pros: "modern comfortable plane, in flight entertainment was good, service was outstanding."
Cons: "food was meh at best, seats in economy are tight and there is no legroom"
Cons: "luggage never made it to Boston? Don't know who's fault it was.Problem was corrected."
Cons: "Seatback TV is of the worst quality among airlines. They really need to upgrade those. They don’t nearly give enough beverage and water. The gate wasn’t announced till last minute. There was no group priorities when boarding. Process was chaotic. Food was meh. No internet."
Cons: "Everything incl customer service at the airport"
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent!"
Cons: "I paid extra for Economy Delight seats for me and my wife. Shortly after take-off, our calm and comfortable more or less empty section of the aircraft was colonised by an extended family of Orthodox Jews in a kind of airborne West Bank situation. They weren’t in our section of the cabin at all to start with, and I don’t know why they were apparently able to get a free upgrade that I had to pay £100 for. We went from being in an almost empty cabin to being basically sat in the middle of an Orthodox Jewish kindergarten. It was awful! They were noisy, messy, were constantly getting in and out of their seats, the back of my seat kept getting kicked, and there was even a baby crawling around the aisle. We were surrounded. I have no idea whether this is characteristic of Orthodox Jewish family life, or just a completely inconsiderate family. They didn’t exactly ruin my flight, but they didn’t make it enjoyable either. I asked to be moved. The cabin crew were great and acknowledged the difficulty of the situation. My wife lost her window seat but at least we still had the legroom and peace and quiet."
Pros: "Easy and on time boarding."
Cons: "Seats are extremely small. And when the seat in front reclines they are basically in your lap."
Pros: "Our ticket was canceled apparently due to an error by the airline. Very unhappy about that. The airline couldn't care less."
Pros: "Good Service. Great attitude of flight attendants..early arrival. smooth flight."
Cons: "despite purchasing 'extra legroom' seats, it was still very, very crowded and tight."
Pros: "The onboard crew were lovely."
Cons: "Stood at check in for over 30 mins with no staff in sight. Boarding was a disaster. Staff was not prepared nor organized and the crowds were unbearable. Upgraded seats were laughable and not worth an extra $60. Food was mediocre. Entertainment would have been good but GE touchscreens are so old, they were difficult to work."
Cons: "We haven’t possiblyty to check in online. Crew smell was terrible, ladies used some perfume, some people was allergic to it"
Pros: "Cool flight, mainly because it was empty. Good food"
Cons: "Seats weren't that comfortable. Entertainment sucked because the screen functions were terrible, very difficult"
Pros: "I could sleep in peace the entire flight and the food. The little care packages we receive with a sleeping mask and ear plugs are also fun and useful."
Pros: "The crew was excellent. Flight was quite comfortable. Nice attention to service"
Cons: "I would have appreciated another round of hot drinks."
Pros: "Helpful flight attendants"
Cons: "Delay at the airport due to system down where agents had to check in everyone manually"
Pros: "I liked that the boarding went really fast and the staff at the JFK airport was super nice and helpful."
Cons: "I didn't like how rude the airplane crew was and how useless and unhappy they were. The sits were very uncomfortable and the food didn't have any taste."
Pros: "Did not take the flight in the end"
Cons: "My first leg flight was delayed and I booked through kayak on two different airlines and the first airline did not communicate with the second airline so 5 passengers ran to make the change and arrived 1 min after the jetbridge to get on the plane was pulled away. It was incredible frustrating and could have very easily been avoided with communication from the airlines"
Pros: "Efficient service"
Cons: "Entertainment screens were of poor quality"
Cons: "My headphones and those of my neighbors did not work."
Pros: "The movie selections and comfortable headsets made it possible to watch three movies uninterrupted. The food selections were well prepared. Flight attendants were helpful and efficient."
Cons: "Boarding is always a bit of chaos when our seats are right in the back. People further up insist on boarding early and block the aisles in the process. Multiple levels of passport control and baggage checkout are chaotic, but that's for most all flights coming into USA? VIrgin/Delta handled it well enough. By the time we got through passport control in Boston ur bags were waiting and we had no problems at all."
Pros: "I liked everything, which is very uncharacteristic :)) At least compared to the big American carriers or the national European ones, VA is a gen - esthetically for sure. Clean, comfy, stylish! Will be my choice from now on."
Pros: "nice new seats"
Cons: "The entre food top was torn, apparently opened before I got it, also there was no salad dressing. ATTN RICHARD BRANSON: Are you concerned for our environment? The head stewardess would not refill my sports water bottle after I asked her nicely, instead she poured water into a cup which she threw away, wasting plastic unnecessarily. I told her I did not like wasting plastic and she appeared to not enjoy what I had to say. This was the same lady who handed me my dinner. Rest of crew was great."
Pros: "Audrey agent at the counter at Heathrow was amazing assisted me in getting my bags located and transfer from air malta to vigin"
Pros: "The whole flight was great quick boarding, lots of leg room, good entertainment, a USB charge port, good lighting, and the crew was very nice and helpful. I enjoyed the flight and would like to fly Virgin Atlantic more. Finally, you are the 3rd best flight, I have ever take, and the 2nd best airline I've been on. Flew Business Class on Swiss Air once to Geneva (#1) and all the flights I have had with Porter Air are comparable to your airline, but the free cookies and beverages at Porter's terminal in Toronto wonderful."
Cons: "A couple things went wrong on this trip, my checked luggage got misplaced for a day, and a nice women in baggage claim told me what was happening and a nice man handled my claim and my bag has now been returned to me. The bigger thing is my flight bas delayed taking off by 3 hours. Let me start that I would rather have a part replaced on the runway then not, safety is paramount. The fact is my flight took off 3 hours late from London (VS11), and got to my destination (BOS) 2.5 hours late. Kudos to the flight crew for getting me to my destination faster by gaining a little time. Plus, since BOSTON was my final destination it was all fine this time. But if I had had to get home to the elder person I take care of or my teenager it would been a problem. Again, I'm annoyed, but I do understand the reasons and they are valid and preferred. I have heard that airlines to keep their flight rating high, wait for planes to leave the gate on time and then do repairs on the tarmac. If this is still a SOP for airlines you should change the way the statistics are collected and figure out a way of not perpetuating this type of disincentive. This is just hypothesis on my part, and my whole trip had little negatives."
Pros: "Was a comfy flight thanks to not having anyone sitting next to me. If someone wouldve been next to me it wouldnt have been as nice because the seats are too bunched for international travel."
Cons: "My seat wouldnt recline properly. There were limited food options for non pork eaters. No outlets for power. How can you operate an international flight with nothing provided for those who need to charge their devices after some time. Not a smart design move."
Pros: "Al comprar el ticket no se aclaraba que a pesar de ser un vuelo internacional se debia pagar por las valijas. Venia de hacer 5 vuelos internos por Australia y en todos los casos tanto Jet como Quantas aclaraban que se debia pagar por el adicional!!!"
Pros: "Very happy with everything"
Cons: "Air conditioning"
Pros: "Great cabin comfort and entertainment. Very nice place to be."
Cons: "Cabin crew less warm and professionally nice than Virgin. One point that needs addressing is that when the cabin crew or, even more so, the pilot came on the PA, the sound level was so much louder than that of the entertainment system. You had people jumping out of their seats and it was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Due to earlier late connecting flight into LAX, I assume, my bags didn't make it with me, and arrived two days late. But your man Fred from PNG Air was right there in POM Jackson's airport to take my information and somehow two days later I did receive the bags! Thanks! The flight itselfe was fine in every other way."
Cons: "Maybe when I checked in for the last two flights if your check-in agents could've told me more clearly about where in the system my bags were, it would've been less of a surprise to find out in POM that they were not with me. I did ask, but got answers like 'we'll try to transfer them' or 'your bags are in the system', which were not too informative, but maybe as complete as those workers could ascertain, I don't know. I would've liked to be able to check in on line in advance for this and other flights on this trip, if you ever decide to open up that facility (without a charge), it would be appreciated."
Cons: "I found the seats on this Virgin Atlantic A340 flight from LHR (London Heathrow) to LAX (Los Angeles), an eleven hour flight, to be unacceptable. The seats were very crowded. I am six feet tall, and was very uncomfortable all during the flight. I could not sit with my knees together. I had to spread my knees to sit comfortably. Holding that position for eleven hours was very uncomfortable. Anyone taller than me would have even more trouble. Also, every seat has a very large box underneath, I presume for the audio/video system. This is a terrible location. There is very little room to stow anything. But much worse, I couldn't straighten my right leg. All-in-all, I found the seat situation totally unacceptable. I will likely never fly Virgin Atlantic again because of this."
Pros: "Major issue: No information in advance of problems associated with transfer at Heathrow that required going from Terminal 5 to Terminal 3-- requireing a lot of walking, stress, time and security checks."
Pros: "There was no food or entertainment, but for such a short flight that's fine"
Cons: "It's so confusing when they list Virgin and Delta interchangeably, when you're not exactly sure which you're going to get. And in my experience, there is a huge difference between the two, so I prefer to know exactly which airline will be servicing me. Just be more clear in listing on flight info. This was not a Virgin flight, it was a Delta one."
Pros: "Virgin always provides the best, friendliest, coolest service!"
Cons: "The food is pretty low quality, but I understand the logistics constraints of feeding many people in a small space without kitchen facilities! Also the wine choices are superior to other airlines and I look forward to that. I normally plan ahead and bring my own meals whenever traveling by air."
Pros: "Great service, comfortable and punctual"
Pros: "More leg room space in the economy space"
Cons: "I'm over 6 feet tall so the seat in the economy class I felt really uncomfortable."
Pros: "Everything was great though navigating through the inflight entertainment could have been easier..."
Pros: "Pleasant crew, quick boarding."
Cons: "Late departure, late arrival due to a plane at our gate. Very poor quality media systems, cramped, inconsiderate passenger next to me taking up more room than necessary. Cramped."
Pros: "Food, crew, entertainment, captain announcements."
Pros: "I loved flying with Virgin. Everything was fast and efficient. All the staff were warm and friendly. The plane was spacious without the feeling of claustrophobia which can sometimes be experienced."
Cons: "7.30hrs next to a kicking, screaming and throwing everything 2 year old child. Virgin let themselves down when there were multiple opportunities to provide alternative seating arrangements."
Pros: "Pressurising on new plane seemed to make long trips less tiring."
Cons: "New plane's weird electronic window shades had us in darkness with sun up high! Unsettling. Couldn't operate the switch under the window. Very noisy systems such as flaps, wheels, etc. Screaming, grinding banging noises. Address system unhearable & useless."
Pros: "Aircraft took off and landed properly."
Cons: "Minimal to no food on the flight, plus size passenger next to me took up her seat and part of mine. No power outlets, no wifi, knees hit seat pocked in front me - basically it was like time travel, only I'm sure a stage coach was more comfortable."
Pros: "I particularly liked the seating which even in economy was roomy and comfortable. The air hostesses were very helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "I don't like drinking hot beverages out of paper cups! Even plastic is preferable to paper. The whole eating experience felt a bit picnicky - boxes of this and that. And I didn't like getting a freezing cold ice lolly in the middle of the afternoon - being British I was longing for a cup of tea and a biscuit or piece of fruit cake. The worst of all was being given late in the afteernoon a cold/damp wrap full of soggy cheese and tomato. Give me a traditional sandwich or roll any day."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "No entertainment. Late boarding."
Pros: "Cost of seat."
Pros: "One sign had row 27> The other sign had 28 >"
Cons: "Mass confusion resulting in slow boarding."
Cons: "Nothing! It’s no comfortable at all!"
Pros: "Over all v good"
Cons: "Why prizes change at the time of booking?"
Cons: "Plane delayed Missed connection"
Cons: "They didnt care about the damages caused to us"
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "Free meal and drinkd"
Cons: "Flight was delayed but we were not informed of what’s happening Too hot, air conditioning did not work"
Pros: "Everything- well done"
Cons: "The people at the counter for boarding were not really friendly. the plane was dirty and in my opinion old. It made a lot of noice."
Cons: "Nothing beat"
Pros: "Will never use kayak again"
Cons: "The breakfast was poor & frozen ."
Pros: "Overall was just ok"
Cons: "Dirty smelly bathrooms Bad breakfast"
Pros: "Great plane--huge and new!"
Pros: "It's all great. Recommended"

Pros: "Not enought time for transit between two flights"
Cons: "Two out of three sutecases did not arrive."
Cons: "Very Bed earing headset."
Pros: "Short flight-everything fine. Great plane."
Cons: "Having to pay for internet if you want to use it. The way Israelis queue at the airport, leaving no room between you and them...too much pressure. Strange 'breakfast"."
Pros: "I was upgraded to buisnes class :)"
Cons: "Every thing was ok"
Pros: "The tv because I got to watch a couple of movies"
Cons: "The crew did not know what they were doing. My grandmother needed a wheel chair and the lady who took her did not allow any of us to stay with her , mind you my grandmother can't speak English. The lady also told us that she didn't need the passport or her boarding pass ??? Because of that my grandmother almost got lost , we had to wait for her for an eternity. She got very scared and very upset for what you guys did . She is an old lady and it was one of her worst experiences of her life"
Pros: "Plenty of room for the legs."
Pros: "The staff are all very professional and nice."
Cons: "שום דבר"
Pros: "amazing !!!"
Cons: "Not enough room between rows. Can't recline seat if table behind is open."
Cons: "It was an hour late arriving!"
Pros: "The lost my 1 checked bag of luggage somewhere between tel aviv-istanbul-frankfurt!! Filed a report at Frankfurt Airport but it was filled with all my essentials and some valuables and the airport staff didnt seem to concerned in helping me.... To clarify, my experience through Kayak has been fine! However this whole ordeal has left a very sour taste in my mouth...i still dont have my luggage. They couldnt track it l yet....maybe you can help or forward this message to the appropriate authority. It is extremely important to me :/ Thanks, I still like kayak :) -addam rhodes"
Cons: "See literally everything above"
Cons: "I flew from Tel Aviv and upon arrival went through security so I could proceed to my departure gate. Then at the departure gate a whole new round of security. There was a priority line, but for some reason I didn't get in it, although I fly business. The line was not that long but it just did not move. And the a/c was not working. Worst boarding experience ever and I've been flying for over 40 years. When I boarded finally I asked if I could give a review and although they said yes- nothing. So I hope someone who cares sees this."
Pros: "good job rushing us to the correct gate"
Cons: "I was shocked when we landed in Ataturk and the sleeve was attached to the plane we had to get down to the ground from the middle of the sleeve. We were taken to the terminal by bus!! After the sleeve was already attached! I can understand when you are in some small airport or flying with low cost airline. But it's Turkish airlines in their home airport! Really disappointed."
Pros: "Add good airline to Atlanta to eu"
Cons: "AC was not working while we were in the ground"
Pros: "It was an amazing overall experience."
Cons: "Would have like to more about boarding gate earlier. But the process flowed very smoothly"
Cons: "No vegan good woithout order"
Pros: "everything was good and don rhith"
Pros: "'we took of late. I WAS PROMISSED ON THE PLANE THAT SOMEONE WILL ASSIST ME TO GET TO MY CONNECTION . IT DIDNT HAPPEN . I LOST MY CONNECTION AND WAS TREATED AT THE DESK AS A VAGABONED. THE PERSON WAS RUDE AND HE YELLED AT ME ! IWAS AFFRAID TO GO TO THE CITY AND STAYED IN AN HOTEL IN THE AIRPORT THAT COST ME 138E SHAME ON THEM ZEHAVA TELEM GILLADI"
Cons: "Security going from venice to Istanbul then israel could have been better"
Cons: "My seat space was too small"
Pros: "The hospitality"
Cons: "It took us 18 long hours to arrive at Germany...and I lost an important meeting..."
Pros: "Everything was okay until I got to Venice,you lost my luggage and couldn't tell me where it's right now!! I'm in Venice without anything and freezing,what should I do?? And I'm here for just few days!!!would you buy cloths for my staying here?! You have said that my stuff will be get directly from Israel- tel aviv ariport to Venice but you lost all the luaggag!!! So I can't think about anything ealas beside thinking about my lost stuff!"
Cons: "Everything was fain but just find my laugh age befor I will get cold and spend my vacation I'll! I will be thanksful for that!"
Pros: "The Turkish Delight servings before meal is excellent."
Cons: "Very long luggage check-in in Tel Aviv."
Pros: "Ran into some turbulence and the pilot did a great job calming down the passengers and explain the weather situation."
Cons: "food option were limited, only one meal choice left"
Pros: "Nothing specific"
Cons: "Long boarding time. Unfriendly flight attendants in business class."
Pros: "The crew was kind and professional, cosy seats with enough place for the legs... Good content in entertainment system."
Pros: "Flavor was fine"
Cons: "Out of 6 special vegetarian meals provided on 4 recent flights, all were pasta. One main meal of pasta even had A SIDE of pasta salad."
Pros: "I slept. Pillow, blanket, clean disposable headrest cover Food was decent Way above average crew."
Cons: "Long boarding process. Broken headphone jack."
Cons: "Late arrival from Helsinki caused issues. Transit from Terminal 3 to Terminal 5 was problematic. Boarding from a bus is never a positive."
Cons: "Not enough legroom. Seats with more room are priced 100€ more, as if we should be paying for being a bit taller. Again, too cold. One or two degrees up would have been comfortable. The entertainment system is a bit clumsy and has odd choices. SAS planes are better in that department for example."
Pros: "Food was better than I thought it was going to be (not that I have enormous expectations for airline food, but it was quite good)."
Cons: "Economy class is cramped, and it was a packed flight. Obviously, this is not a BA-only issue. It may have been me in my dehydrated state, but the cabin was also quite a bit warm."
Pros: "The crew was phenomenal overall service good no complaints in that regard"
Cons: "My son is 6 foot 4 and it really would have been nice to have more options for more leg room that didn't cost $266 per person we were really scrunched in there and it was pretty uncomfortable for 6 or 7 hours"
Pros: "The staff were excellent, very professional and cordial. Food was delicious and plentiful. The special diet I ordered for my daughter was delicious as well. Airplane and facilities were clean throughout."
Pros: "Seating quality was good Crew was fine"
Cons: "They could be better, friendlier"
Cons: "No breakfast on out bound leg"
Cons: "Delays and overbooked flights"
Pros: "Good and crew were fine"
Cons: "Seats were too close, not comfortable"
Pros: "The new boarding process (just one general call, rather than a bunch of zones) was simple, quiet, and efficient."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable. There were small ridges on the left and right side - perhaps to compensate for the very shallow seat depth. But these made it hard to sit more on one side of the seat than the other, something you'd want to do if you were sat next to someone who took up a good deal of armrest area. Media screens had a good selection but were unresponsive and had poor picture quality."
Pros: "Flight was on schedule"
Cons: "Food was poor Service was mechanical non personal"
Pros: "Great snack options and wide drink assortment"
Cons: "Red wine wasn't that great"
Pros: "Crew was exceptionally friendly."
Cons: "Entertainment units often malfunction. Seats are cramped."
Cons: "The airplane was shaking all the flight"
Pros: "Flight staff was very nice"
Pros: "The flight was smooth from boarding to landing early at Heathrow."
Cons: "It was a fully booked flight, which means the person next to you tends to overflow into your seat"
Cons: "I paid 100$ 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."
Cons: "Opportunity to purchase snacks and have wifi available."
Pros: "Upgraded to world traveler plus was way more comfortable. The flight crew were so so nice and helpful. I am handicapped and they just couldn't do enough to make me comfortable."
Cons: "They the seats I reserved months ago were changed."
Pros: "On time, fast baggage return. Dinner (herbed chicken) was very tasty. Generous drinks"
Cons: "Pre-arrival snack was just chips or candy bars, after a 7+ hour flight."
Pros: "Cabin crew was very friendly. On board entertainment worked. Food was good. Overall a much better experience than our flight to London"
Pros: "British airways are putting effort into good bathrooms in airport. On time. No problems. Good quality food. Free tea and food."
Cons: "in seat 40 there was no food choice. for baggage."
Pros: "The food was adequate and when they brought drinks they were free. With the person in front of me reclining her seat I could not have my cup of water on the tray without it being tipped because it intruded too much. i am assuming the seat was broken as that would be silly to have a seat recline so much that you couldn't use the tray table properly."
Cons: "48 minutes and I turned the light off and on for a flight attendant numerous times. I finally had to speak out across the plane since the people blocking me in were sleeping. This was just to get a glass of water. Service was deplorable. People kept walking to the galley rather than the flight attendants attending. A sad state of affairs. I paid for extra leg room but apparently a plane change put me in a different seat which did not give extra leg room."
Pros: "Quick, smooth flight"
Cons: "Landed over 40 mins ago and still waiting to get off the flight."
Cons: "Could not get seat assigned until I was at the gate. Same thing occurred on the way to Edinburg. Not sure what the issue is but it happened both ways and was a problem."
Pros: "Security staff was rude in England and our suitcases was lost And they did not even let us know"
Pros: "Boarding was good and flight was on time. Crew were polite and attentive. Food was okay too."
Cons: "No leg room and as usual I had an uncomfortable 6 hours with my legs jammed against the seat in front. Having spent $900 on the flights I am not going to pay another $81 for the 'upgrade'. Also, even as a slim person, the seats are crammed together so we all knock elbows and I am disappointed that all the airlines continue to reduce space. Arrival at Logan, Boston was a nightmare...2 hours to get through passport control, customs and baggage pick up. Don't fly into Boston at 9pm Saturday night! I flew outbound with AerLingus and the leg room was better so I will look to fly with them next time."
Pros: "The crew was very efficient"
Cons: "The was really bad."
Pros: "flight crew were very friendly and mostly helpful, except when they could not locate my meal, and i ended up getting about half of what the other diners got."
Cons: "boarding seems intent of creating class divisions. it may be useful for profitability, but it seems quite weird in today's world. food was significantly worse than the food on another flight i had taken the same day, delhi to london. seats are a bit janky and we had problems with the seat ahead reclining too much and not being able to be held upright."
Cons: "For some reason British Airways has a bug in its computers and does not allow me to check in on line. This is not the first time."
Cons: "Seats on 747 recline back way too far. Could not enjoy my flight back from London with the guy in front of me reclined back so far. Was forced to recline my seat all the way back as well if I wanted to watch anything. I guess it's OK if you are on an overnight flight and just want to sleep. Everything else was great though."
Pros: "Great modern plane with plenty of room. Food was great and loved the free wine."
Cons: "Boarding could have been done more efficiently."
Pros: "Everything was good on this flight. The staff were excellent, very professional, and were very helpful. When they heard about our plight at LHR Term. 5 when connecting to this flight, they were very considerate and offered to send in a report (still waiting for the result of this, no contact yet 6 days later). Again, the luggage space and lie-flat seats (Club World) and meals (except my gluten-free meal) were very good, as was entertainment and cleanliness of the plane and lavs. This flight was supposed to be delayed by two hours, but in the end, they managed to take off at the originally scheduled time. More good news: the flight was smooth and arrived on time and most importantly, safely. Luggage arrived quickly and in good condition on the carousel. BA is really good!"
Cons: "Lavs: Lavs were clean, which is always good, but there was no red/green availability lights on this aircraft, those would be helpful."
Pros: "The attitude of the staff to help"
Cons: "In london it took 3 hours to rebook. They rebooked me to JFK onward LGA to BOS the next day. The flight to JFK landed 9:30 PM as scheduled. Poor slot management lead to 2 hours on the Tarmac. 11:30 PM flight is taxied to another terminal. No BA customer service here. BA baggage service takes 2.5 hours to write a hotel voucher. Left Airport and reached Hotel at 3 AM. It took a further 1 hour for the Hotel to verify the vouchers. Finally hotel room at 4:15 AM"
Pros: "This flight was very empty, which made for quick boarding and a comfortable journey. We were on time and luggage came out promptly. Overall a really easy flying experience (despite a bit of turbulence)."
Cons: "The pasta dishes continue to be uninspiring, but at least the dessert was tasty! Also, my last BA flight had outlets for personal electronic devices, which this did not - I would have really appreciated having a way to charge my laptop and keep working."
Pros: "The Service. The Attention"
Cons: "The Food."
Cons: "We need more space!! You know that, we know that , everyone knows that"
Pros: "The seat belts have chewing gum all over and it was gross"
Pros: "Food was excellent for an airline, free wine doesn't hurt. Crew was polite."
Cons: "Very cramped seating, seats and blankets looked dated (read: kind of gross)."
Pros: "Attentive crew, they asked person in front of me to bring their seat upright so I could eat my meal properly -- that was a first for me! When chicken option ran out, they offered me the business class beef option."
Cons: "Absolutely no room at all -- we were packed in like sardines in the coach section. Window cover was broken so could not raise it to look out (across my fellow passenger)."

Cons: "The 7:00 flight was delayed for an hour and then delayed for another 2. Meanwhile, the 8:00 flight was called for boarding. It was very frustrating. Those of us who got in line quickly were able to fly standby on the 8:00 flight. I felt the airline did not treat us honestly. I believe the reasons for the delays were known long before the delays were communicated to passengers. (For example, there was a new delay announcement at 8:00 for a flight scheduled to leave at 7:58). Had we been informed earlier, people could have made alternate plans if they wanted to do so (e.g. Rent a car or reschedule for the next day.)"
Pros: "Business Class seat"
Cons: "People using forward lavs"
Cons: "Packed light with no toiletries in our carry on to avoid having to go to baggage claim. They announced anyone in groups 3 or 4 had to check their bags. We checked our bag, boarded the plane, and there was PLENTY of overhead space. Wasted 35 minutes at baggage claim."

It's an understatement to say he surpassed my service expectations! he should be commended. This random act of service and kindness was witnessed by many other passengers. I"

Pros: "Everything great"

Even though there were plenty of aisle seats open, the crew member just kinda ignored us. The old lady sitting next to me just slept the whole time and I could not get out to the bathroom. Also since I am left handed I could not really eat since with the right-handed old lady we were hitting each other's elbow and nocking each the food out of each other's hand, I finally pulled my elbow in and ate like a T-Rex. The person in front of me pushed their seat back all the way, I asked the crew member to do something but nothing really was done, since I am a little taller I could not fit my knees, they were crushed."

Pros: "The entertainment system was standard. The food was ok."
Cons: "At the check in, despite that I have a swiss passport, 5)3 hostess looked solely at my face and assumed I need avisa and asked me three times for my visa. On the flight, blankets are removed 20-30 minutes before landing during which I was freezing. Upon arrival, my new bag i hadnt used as yet was broken and TAP pays nothing and does no kind of exchange for broken bags. Basically- they dont care! During my return flight, despite being checked in adn being at the airport wel ahead of time, the airport clerks gyided me to the wrong desk and I had to wait longer than needed. The check in for baggages had closed by 1 min. They were allowing me to take the flight only if I threw out all my liquids or else were off loading me. They proposed no other solution and wanted to make me pay 450 dollara to put me on the flight the next day. I had an interview the following day and needed to return. I ended buying a new full fare ticket with British airways and got excellent service. I am yet to complain to TAP."
Cons: "The crew was rude, after 5 hours they seemed annoyed when I asked for water and gave me half a cup after I had just finished vomitting due to all the swaying of the aircraft. While we were landing, we came over the runway maybe 100 feet off the ground then jetted back up and circled around the airport for 20 minutes before landing horribly...with NO explaination. Everyone started vomitting because the landing (both times) were so horrible. Our first flight was late, we landed when the second was 'closing the doors', they never updated the monitors or informed the crew that the second plane was also delayed (by over an hour), so we rushed through customs and ran through the airport only to discover they hadn't even started boarding yet, even though the screen said it had departed. Completely disorganized."
Cons: "They had no record of my order for a vegetarian meal. I was served some fish but it was terrible. I couldn't determine what the grainy side dish was."
Cons: "They lost my luggage. What else is there to tell????"
Pros: "As noted above"
Cons: "TAP rebooked on SATA flight to Boston. There was no inflight entertainment for a 7 hr flight! not even one small TV where you could watch. The food was chicken but it came with pork which i cannot eat. Upon arrival to Boston they lost my luggage and did not seemed concerned when i reported it. There were several outfits for family members for a religious holiday in a few days. They promised a call back regarding my luggage but they never called. The number i was given didnt work. I had to call several numbers before i was able to find someone to discuss my luggage with. The lady on the phone told me it was probably because I switched from TAP to SATA. However I didnt choose this change, TAP rebooked me. They could not assure me they would find or call me back. i ended up getting it back 6 days later. without an appology or any kind of compensation."

Cons: "The entertainment for the plane ride was not working for the entire plane-for a ling 7+ hour flight its not very comfortable/good."

Pros: "Comfortable, nice flight. Lots of room for legs.Confortable leather seats. Nice food and drink options.Great flight attendants. Early arrival in Boston. Smooth and pleasant return flight to the US overall just like the flight going to Europe."
Cons: "Confusing non-European passport check with machines that did not work. Police officers did not help at all. They just waited for us to manage to go through automatic passport checking via machines and stamped our passports. Frustrating for the elderly people in line with us. Long, delayed boarding. Long wait to get luggage at arrival : more than one hour! Long wait at customs although we had landed early and there was no other flight than ours at first, but we waited so long for our luggage that there was an enormously long line because a couple of more flights had also landed. Overall an exhausting experience because of the wait at arrival. And we had a 2-hour drive afterwards... BUT this has has nothing to do with the flight which was great!"
Cons: "Entertainment screen did not function. Snug seating No vegan food"
Cons: "See above remarks"
