Could organize boarding better
Very helpful and fast serving crew . Can improve on seating space
Checkin was greuling slow and an excruciating experience at the Indira Gandhi international airport. There were only 4 windows open to check in 300 passengers. It took me 50 mins to get to the window. I was there 3+ hours before departure time upon arrival from my domestic flight that arrived on Terminal 2. Security took another hour and no one from the flight ground staff came looking for me to expedite my security unlike the KLM staff. KLM staff was looking for their passengers in the security and immigration area for a good half hour. Also, I tried multiple times the day of my flight to WEB CHECKIN. the Qatar website and APP didn't let me do that either. I nearly missed my flight and was the last one to board!!!! I hope the airlines adapts to handle larger volume of passengers given the type of Airport rules and regulations. For example, IGA at New Delhi haa an additional Immigration step before security that's added an additional 45 min to my time to board the plane. Thank you and I hope a real human actually reads this survey response and it doesn't end up being processed by a computer bot that lacks human compassion and emotional IQ.

Good food,helpful staffs .
Spacious seating was great! Food could have been better!
Right now everything good
The boarding procedure was ABYSMAL. It is infuriating to be asked to "social distance" and wear masks when the airline is unable to conduct boarding in an organized and efficient way. The crew was totally incompetent in informing waiting passengers. No microphones. No digital display of boarding order. No staff assistance. Waiting for WAY too long with no explanation. It was perfectly awful. Food was eatable but completely tasteless. Not nearly enough liquid distribution.
Clean the toilet more often.
Výhody: "Amazing crew, super hospitality, conformable sit"

Výhody: "Amazing service. Incredible comfort."
Výhody: "Another confirmation of excellent QA service."
Výhody: "Absolutely professional!"
Nevýhody: "Nothing all perfect"
Výhody: "Crew is good. Flight got delayed"
Nevýhody: "Food is good."
Výhody: "Everything was just average to poor."
Nevýhody: "Baggage was not handled properly. Food is just average. Crew looked very tired, they are probably too much overloaded with work and the airline has poor scheduling of shifts for their crews."
Výhody: "Crew was not mean"
Nevýhody: "The seats were very uncomfortable, entertainment screen had poor picture quality, eggs were black, stank + inedible, long bathroom lines , a child screamed most of the flight, no internet, couldn’t change phone, checked bags damaged - handles ripped off!!!"
Nevýhody: "I didn’t like the spicy food"
Výhody: "The food and flight staff were good"
Výhody: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Nevýhody: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."
Výhody: "While my Qatar airways flight from Houston to Doha (# 714) was almost perfect, flight #1335 from Doha to Nairobi was a huge disappointment."
Nevýhody: "The flight attendants didn't seem to know what they were doing, food ran out before i got any breakfast, the IFE system for my seat didn't work,"
Výhody: "Crew were very helpful and courteous"
Výhody: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Nevýhody: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."
Nevýhody: "most of us sitting in and around me didn't get any rest or sleep as we had a passenger who had a psychotic breakdown and was screaming and poking everyone. She sprinkled me with water severally, I hope we get some sort of compensation from Qatar airways for this terrible disturbance"
Výhody: "Good service, clean aircraft, friendly crew"
Nevýhody: "Qatar Airways Asian vegetarian hot meal is not as good as some other airlines. It lacks the asian grains, light spices etc."
Nevýhody: "- Leg Space is challenge"
Výhody: "Great service and crew"
Výhody: "Good service but need to improve food quality and quantity."
Výhody: "Every aspect of flight was wonderful, though I’m sure that fly"
Výhody: "All of it was great!"
Výhody: "Office staff was cooperative Overall flight was good"
Nevýhody: "Ground crew was rude in behavior - not all but briefing counter staff"
Výhody: "Staff were professional, food was good and seats were comfortable."
Výhody: "Let's just say there was nothing I didn't like"
Nevýhody: "I have no comment"
Výhody: "I liked the organized boarding prosecution, everyone was seated by the boarding zone so there were no mess and no fight over who gets to go first in the plane. the food was good too, again vegetarian options and very good quality. I"
Výhody: "Some how it was a good experience"
Výhody: "Food was good for once"
Nevýhody: "They said they would fix the sound on my sons t.v. but that never happened so we had to swap seats and one of us didn't have any onboard entertainment although we asked about it 4 times"
Výhody: "Extremely like Qatar airways Both ground services and in flight service are excellent"
Nevýhody: "Nothing . everything was fine."
Výhody: "The flight was on time, not full and the crew and the entertainment was excellent. Very happy with the experience of flying on Qatar Airways from Johannesburg to Miami."
Nevýhody: "Everything was well, the food was good not great (even for airplane food) and the only other issue is it seemed like trash from our drinks and food services was picked up for quite a while or until we brought it to the flight attendants ourselves."
Výhody: "They make you feel welcome like you are a big deal unlike most US airlines. Ticamporn was a great hostess especially . Food was great as well."
Výhody: "The food and entertainment systems were good. The staff on the plane were pleasant."
Výhody: "Stewardess (Thai origin) - can't recall her name... Simi something or another... was very helpful... great experience!"
Výhody: "Intertainment was very good"
Nevýhody: "The hostess were not in profisional, they were very rush while giving the food the toilet was not clean"
Výhody: "Overall, an excellent short flight. I was flying with oversize luggage (bicycle), which is offer a hassle. The ticket agent took care of it without issue, and it arrived safely. Food was OK. I would try Qatar for a long flight if the opportunity arises."
Nevýhody: "Boarding was chaotic. Everyone just queued up instead of using zones, etc."
Výhody: "The service given from the crew from the moment i checked in was amazing. The flight was smooth and went well. The music and movie selection could be a little bit better. The food was good, but the portion was small and it feels limited. But overall it was amazing experience considering i got a really good price for this flight! Thank you, Qatar."
Nevýhody: "The food portion was small and feels like during the flight the food or i might say snack was limited. The music and movies selection needs a little update and upgrade. I was pretty upset that from LA to Denpasar both the aircrafts didnt have wifi."
Výhody: "Everything was comfortable."
Nevýhody: "I can't think of anything."
Nevýhody: "Staff was very friendly, courteous and helpful."
Výhody: "Food was really hot and good customer service"
Výhody: "crew was friendly"
Nevýhody: "seats were way too cramped - worst flight ever that way - what has happened to Swiss - there is no room - horrible!!!"
Výhody: "The seat was much better than other airlines' economy seats. Great food and lots of it. Excellent attendants. Zurich is the best planned airport for changing to next flight. I'm going to try to use Swiss as often as I can."
Nevýhody: "Free Wifi."
Výhody: "Swiss is always excellent"
Výhody: "The crew"
Nevýhody: "More comfortable seats"
Výhody: "Amazing crew/ food/seats very comfortable! Very relaxing ride !"
Nevýhody: "It was perfect !"
Výhody: "Food and drink service were excellent and big choice of entertainment"
Nevýhody: "seat row spacing in economy was too tight for a 10+ hour flight"
Výhody: "The. Crew were amazing"
Nevýhody: "Lpst my luggage"
Výhody: "The crew was very helpful & friendly"
Nevýhody: "The a/c or fans were on too high"
Výhody: "There wasn't much that stood out as likable. The food was pretty good."
Nevýhody: "The plane was too hot. I asked multiple times throughout the flight for the temperature to be reduced, and it was not. I was wearing light jeans and a short sleeve shirt, and I was sweating all flight. Each time I asked throughout the duration of the flight, I was told it take a while for the temperature to decline. It's one thing to be uncomfortably warm on a flight; it's another thing when the flight crew lies to you. Further, I was not the only one to request that the temperature be reduced. This made an 11 hour flight particularly miserable."
Výhody: "Food service is adequate."
Nevýhody: "Standard complaint, but economy seats are way to squeezed in!"
Výhody: "Good seats for my wife and i: window and aisle seat"
Nevýhody: "Only glass of water free...coffee is 3.50"
Výhody: "Checkin was smooth, cabin crew and service was great. Absolutely no complaints."
Nevýhody: "Nothing. All was exceptionally good."
Výhody: "Great service & lots of room to sleep"
Nevýhody: "Roughest flight ever, many people got sick, too much turbulence to fly"
Výhody: "The flight ,food entertainment was very good. But I don't understand the SWISS airline logic. When I did the check in in Prague and got my boarding pass the told me that the system picked me to have the additional random checkup at Zurich airport. Its ok. If it’s done for security reason why to tell the people ahead of time that they will have additional checkup of bags and personal stuff. If you want to do it for security reason do it ( I want to be safe) but don’t do it for the check mark , it doesn’t make any sense and doesn’t protect us."
Výhody: "The seats were comfortable considering they were middle seats. The food was quite good and the entertainment selection was also good."
Nevýhody: "Boarding was later than initially said and I did not know why"
Výhody: "The crew fed us well throughout the flight--and we got free wine with dinner. The food was pretty good for airplane food. We got fresh dinner rolls, salad, dessert, and Swiss cheese. We got ice cream part way through the trip. I loved that we got a piece of Swiss chocolate on each leg of the journey. The crew was friendly. There was a screen at each seat where you could watch movies or TV, listen to music, or track your flight. The entertainment was free, and the crew provided free earphones. Blankets and pillows were provided."
Nevýhody: "Like most planes, there was not enough leg room. It makes it pretty uncomfortable for an 11-1/2 hour flight. The boarding was a little confusing, but no serious issues."
Nevýhody: "Seats too small."
Výhody: "Got bumped to business class."
Nevýhody: "What's not to like about that?"
Výhody: "Crew was great."
Nevýhody: "My wife is strictly Hindu vegetarian. We had entered her food choice at Swiss web site months before. She didn't get the food while going to Zurich and coming back to Boston. She remained hungry both ways. Although we were in business class while coming."
Výhody: "Everything!! This airline is a huge breath of fresh (old?) air. It reminded me of how air travel used to be. No baggage charge - we only checked one bag. There was plenty of great food and drink - alcoholic drinks were free. We will definitely look to use SwissAir whenever possible."
Výhody: "crew very nice and helpful. great service. food was very good and good portions. very nice entertainment system."
Nevýhody: "unable to choose seat without paying extra."
Výhody: "Crew was nice and I loved the TVs keeping us up to date on the flight and our connection. We were even early boarding."
Nevýhody: "Everything was good."
Výhody: "The aisle seat I purchased wasn't miserable like so many economy seats are. But I did have to pay for it!"
Nevýhody: "I had such a miserable experience getting to Florence on Swiss Air that I sent a letter of complaint WHILE ON VACATION!! Really. It was a nightmare... not the way you want to start a vacation. I had difficulty booking my daughter's seat online for the return, but didn't have access to phone service while abroad. In my complaint letter to Swiss Air I requested they place us together. I never got a response and upon check in, they had my son and me in our purchased seats and my daughter at the back of the plane. I asked them if they could do anything about it (I was even willing to give up my seats to move to the back...) yet no one seemed concerned or interested in helping to make this work. They also had no knowledge of my complaint or appeared concerned about my prior experience. I'm so over Swiss Air. My experience with the employees on the phone prior to my first departure, the lack of response to my email, and a disinterested and inattentive staff on my return, have all convinced me to choose a different airline next time."
Výhody: "The service is the best!!! I enjoyed everything!!"
Výhody: "Service ok"
Nevýhody: "Horrible food, tvs didn't work, crowded."
Výhody: "It takes two minutes to get to a live operator when you call. Simply amazing."
Nevýhody: "The flight from Nairobi to Zurich starts in Nairobi, flies an hour south to Dar es Salaam, you then sit on the tarmac for an hour, then you fly north for an hour until you get back to the starting point. I would think they would save money if they flew an empty plane down to Dar es Salaam, picked up those passengers and then flew back to Nairobi. No way should an 8.5 hour flight take over 11.5 hours. Plus my screen didn't work for one of the flights, nearly 12 hours without entertainment was BS. No real variety in their meals either. The first leg had a main meal of beef and potatoes as the meat option, same option for the second leg."
Výhody: "Crew was amazing. So patient and accommodating, even when passengers were a bit impatient. Cabin was clean, and it was good to have blankets and pillow on a long flight."
Nevýhody: "Boarding was a bit chaotic. Food was okay but not substantial. Comfort was terrible in my seat - for some reason I had a seat with a metal box underneath so I could not stretch my legs. And the fellow next to me, in the middle, was over 6 feet and was VERY uncomfortable, even though he had legroom. There were good options for entertainment, but it was unreliable and had to be restarted once. Also, the screen was terrible quality and I could not see no matter how I adjust the screen angle or the light."
Výhody: "The crew was pleasant."
Nevýhody: "The Swissair website did not have my information available. Stood next to Passport Control for an hour (!) for a glitch they couldn't resolve before boarding. Flight was delayed 90 minutes. Worse quality beef on a flight ever, and that's hard to do. In my 1.5 million miles flown, these were the least comfortable, cramped seats I have ever experienced. I am only 5'7", 150lbs, but for the first time ever could not reach my belongings in the under-the-seat space in front of me. Seriously, it was that cramped."
Výhody: "Courtesy of crew."
Nevýhody: "The most uncomfortable flight I've ever experienced. The seats were too small. It was torture for a 12 hour flight. Need more space and padding in the seats."
Výhody: "Best flight in years. Attentive crew, very good food and wine, on time. Strongly recommended."
Nevýhody: "Boarding was chaotic Crew was friendly but rarely came through Offering water during a 12 hr flight Also did not enforce "shades down" during the The night And did not respond to call lights"
Výhody: "Very good service on board"
Nevýhody: "Crammed into middle seats both way. Many/Long lines in ZRH/SFO"
Výhody: "Friendly crew. Good food and entertainment. Comfortable seats."
Výhody: "The flight crew were great very friendly & service oriented as far as getting your food & water"
Nevýhody: "My partner & I were given separate seats. We tired to reserve our seats online according to instructions & time but the online registration wasn't working properly. We had to wait til we were at the airport to do that. When checking in we were told we had to wait til onboard? Then once on board told no. So we were not able to sit together & weren't even in the same area of the plane. We also had an old plane & seats very uncomfortable. The movie screen was barely visible so basically u could just listen."
Výhody: "Food was overall not bad. It would have been nice to have more snack options if I was hungry in between meals."
Nevýhody: "Landed early but there was no gate so we just sat on the runway. We also sat on the runway long past when we were supposed to arrive. I'm not sure why there still was no gate when we passed the time that we were supposed to arrive. There were also no power outlets in the plane. For such a long flight, it would be great to have power outlets to charge devices while flying. Flight was also kept very cold. Not very good entertainment options."
Výhody: "Excellent service"
Nevýhody: "Small jet for transatlantic didn't allow for being able to walk, stretch and move about much during such a long flight, unlike larger airbus planes or larger Boeing planes. Why do airlines hire chefs then serve lousy food!? First meal was so so while wake up meal was really bad. Was so disappointed in Swiss Air so will not fly with them again. Great service doesn't make up for the noted disappointments. Spending a $2-3 more on food would have helped, but placing us in a long flight in such a small airbus plane just won't do!"
Výhody: "We were fed constantly, which is nice because on a longer flight you never feel hungry. The staff was great."
Nevýhody: "More space would be nice but I guess you can't ask for too much on flights these days."
Nevýhody: "Not working screens in the plane in my area, gate full of smoke coming from a smoking lounge without a place to buy coffee or food, not civilised stewards (I saw them jumping through fences to skip some part a line at the airport in US). Also the seat in front of me was stretching out more than mines and I was squeezed."
Výhody: "The seats had a large amount of leg room!"
Nevýhody: "We left a little late."
Výhody: "Friendly crew"
Nevýhody: "Very uncomfortable seating"
Problems with the in-flight wi-fi (none) and the flight info (none). However, movies worked fine and the selection is exceptional.
New 737 and seats too confining
Swift clean friendly on time
Výhody: "The crew from Kili to DarEsSalam was tired. A fresh crew worked from DarEsSalam to AMS and they were great."
Nevýhody: "The boarding process was chaotic. The passengers in the first boarding group had to fight through the crowd because there were no boarding lanes."
Výhody: "I was sorted on Row 3 and the drapes kept hitting the back of my head."
Nevýhody: "Move the drapes a few more inches back."
Výhody: "KLM are our airline of choice. A great full-service carrier with impecable standards."
Výhody: "Usual faultless KLM experience"
Výhody: "Planes were on time and connections made."
Nevýhody: "One bag delayed as not put on flight and food could be better."
Nevýhody: "We were allowed to choose our seats from SFO to Amsterdam but not for the return flight. I like to be able to choise my seats when I book the flight. Choosing seats 24 hours before is not convenient when traveling for the return trip."
Výhody: "Good for both."
Nevýhody: "Bigger seats."
Nevýhody: "The website I booked on and the Delta phone line on the printed ticket said that I had baggage when it turns out that I did not according to the check in staff and they made me pay."
Výhody: "The service"
Nevýhody: "The food."
Výhody: "Best airline in the business quick efficient and outstanding service What else can you say"
Výhody: "Friendly crew! More legroom, good entertainment and food was great! Smooth landings pretty much on time."
Nevýhody: "Boarding could be better"
Výhody: "Nothing to mention"
Nevýhody: "Crew was rude when I asked if there was a vegetarian option for the snack. I did request special meals for the trip. Even if they did not have a vegetarian option, they don't need to be rude!! Boarding was ridiculous. we were supposed to form a line and wait. Would have been a lot better if they boarded by seat numbers. Also they made me check in my fairly small and light carry on bag resulting in its contents arriving broken!"
Výhody: "short, sweet and to the point. 1+ hour flight is usually an easy hop."
Výhody: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight. KLM #605 from Amsterdam to SFO---please pass the praise to all of them."
Výhody: "Good selection of movies."
Nevýhody: "Very small seats with no leg room and very little room on either side. The food was bad - even when compared to other airplane food. Plane is kept too warm."
Výhody: "Easy flight; loved the crew and their friendly customer service. Great food, kept everyone hydrated and fed."
Nevýhody: "The movie options, as well as music and TV options were limited. There were no electrical outlets."
Výhody: "Easy flight; loved the crew and their friendly customer service. Great food, kept everyone hydrated and fed."
Nevýhody: "The movie options, as well as music and TV options were limited. There were no electrical outlets."
Výhody: "Easy to board and easy flight."
Výhody: "Arrived early!"
Nevýhody: "Boarding seemed disorganized."
Výhody: "Great on board service from a very professional crew."
Nevýhody: "Can't think of a thing."
Nevýhody: "KLM staff in the Prague airport were some of the rudest humans I have ever met. So incredibly uncaring and outright mean."
Výhody: "Food was excellent, frequent and filling"
Nevýhody: "The seat was not comfortable compared to my prior leg of the journey. Unfortunately the bathrooms were not clean, I understand that it's not the sole responsibility of the crew and passengers need to be mindful too."
Výhody: "Nice crew; clean plane; decent dinner"
Nevýhody: "No entertainment system; insufficient knee space"
Výhody: "Very friendly crew going out of way to assist in making trip comfortable"
Nevýhody: "Had travelled KLM to Amsterdam on my first flight 27 years ago and the aircrafts are stuck in that age! Lousy seats, poor quality bathrooms, lousy screens, prefer not to fly them"
Výhody: "Friendly attendants. Decent food, and frequent snacks and beverages."
Nevýhody: "No charging ports for electronic devices."
Výhody: "Crew was very nice and helpful, entertainment system worked well and had good choices"
Nevýhody: "Seats were not very comfortable, it was uncomfortably hot and there was not air conditioner vent above like most other airlines"
Nevýhody: "Bit cramped for space"
Výhody: "Pleasant flight"
Nevýhody: "Boarding was a free for all. The travelers did not pay attention to the priorities."
Výhody: "Consistently high standards"
Nevýhody: "Amesterdam airport employee was really rude"
Nevýhody: "Old airplane with not really comfy seats. No outlets for charging devices. Very old entertainment screen."
Výhody: "I was pleasantly surprised they had a snack service on such a short flight. The flight attendants were very friendly"
Nevýhody: "Amsterdam customs is the most disorganized I have ever seen. With the number of tourists entering the country you would think they would have done something about it. There were only 2 customs agents!! One for all passports and 1 for all passports. We were in the customs hall longer than we were in flight!"
Výhody: "Loved the service...everything was excellent"
Nevýhody: "The bus class seat was a bit narrow at the feet"
Výhody: "The flight was delayed due to fog, but the staff was amazingly helpful to make sure everyone got to their destination."
Nevýhody: "Terrible service in flight and customer service wise .. app functionality was below"
Výhody: "Easy airport business"
Výhody: "KLM food and service are great"
Výhody: "Newer plane. Dimming windows, upgraded bathroom. Flight crew very pleasant."
Nevýhody: "Boarding wasn't announced. Limited in flight movie selection. Food was average. Same dessert for both meals served."
Výhody: "Captain was updating us with the delay status."
Nevýhody: "You have to be gold to get the priority boarding. In other countries I can do it with my silver status."
Výhody: "In general, it was ok"
Nevýhody: "Yet again it was flight delay from KLM side."
Výhody: "- entertainment systen was OK (movies), but has no current news - food was good - windows can be darkened progressively"
Nevýhody: "- Schiphol airport (AMS) is small, crowded, noisy; no water fountains; toilets are dirty and insufficient in number; SFO is much better - KLM boarding process was chaotic (not by group or row number), boarding/security personnel (4 old guys) didn't have a clue - 787 is noisy, chairs are uncomfortable (my back still hurts) and very close together, they also recline way too much - food trays not collected promptly - noisy babies on all flights - clearly not enough cabin crew for a full flight - no or wrong info by pilots on timing (crew are always lying anyway) - gate is all around the back at SFO (long taxi to get there) - they inserted people in wheelchairs during deboarding thus holding everybody up."
Výhody: "Average service and food quality"
Nevýhody: "Inside the business class cabin Boeing 777 only one toilet facility available. People is queuing."
Výhody: "Crew were polite"
Výhody: "The time and the route and seat pitch."
Nevýhody: "Food and crew."
Nevýhody: "I could not check in online and BA is not available on the kiosk in the airport."
Nevýhody: "Rerouted thru LA and I have filled in all the challenges faced in previous review."
Výhody: "Crew was great given the circumstances that British Airways had significant systems issue that caused significant delay and missing of connecting flight"
Nevýhody: "Trip was a disaster"
Nevýhody: "Overall it was a very good experience. The crew was bad obliging and professional. The flight took off 30 minutes early from Abu Dhabi. However, it was late taking off from Heathrow. There was a delay of 1.25 hours as the ground crew took a long time to load and get the plane ready at Heathrow."
Nevýhody: "Our baby has broken leg with plaster cast and Cathay didn’t deliver our stroller to Hongkong so we had to carry him on the hands whole afternoon...this was unpleasant experience...also when we arrived from HongKong to Denpasar Bali we found that one of our suitcases was damaged broken :/"
Výhody: "Seat was comfortable"
Nevýhody: "Crew. Crew was very rude. I understand their day was difficult due to the delay, but it made it worse for passengers, many of whom missed or were about to miss connections"
Výhody: "Flight was fine, staff friendly and caring"
Nevýhody: "Transfer in Heathrow - they dont return your gate checked stroller at gate, they dont have loaners, lines are long and distances huge and with no stroller this is super tiring They dont even give free water or cold drinks on this flight and we were lare late due to air traffic at Heathrow"
Výhody: "flawless flight, pleasant captain, friendly crew, free drinks, better than average food, enough food, toilet rooms not crowded, entertainment as good as can be expected, charging stations, reclining seats to the extreme"
Nevýhody: "music could have more variety. window shade jammed... could not close, light broken, impossible to extricate oneself from seats due to reclined seats in front."
Nevýhody: "Sat near gate waiting 15 min for ground crew. Flight was on-time and weather fine so there was no reason for a crew not to be there. Then sat at gate because no attendant available to move the jetway. Again, poor planning or cut staff to save money at the cost of timely service."
Výhody: "Comfortable seats, good selection of food/drinks from the menu and courteous staff"
Výhody: "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."
Výhody: "Lie flat bed"
Nevýhody: "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."
Nevýhody: "Nothing wrong"
Výhody: "Entertainment options were good."
Nevýhody: "Lost my bag. No idea where it was for 48 hours. Staff was ok. Ran out of meal options, took 4 asks to get a glass of wine and by the time I got it, I was done eating."
Výhody: "Great, very comfortable, easy transatlantic flight"
Výhody: "The crew were great."
Nevýhody: "Did not like that you have to pay for water or soft drinks"
Výhody: "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."
Výhody: "Entertainment options were varied and good."
Nevýhody: "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."
Výhody: "very friendly and efficient crew"
Nevýhody: "mediocre food, chaotic boarding area"
Nevýhody: "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."
Výhody: "As always, a great flight."
Nevýhody: "Nothing I can think of."
Výhody: "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"
Výhody: "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."
Nevýhody: "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."
Nevýhody: "Wasn't allowed to check in prior to flight and got 2 middle seats on a A380"
Výhody: "The plane"
Výhody: "Lots of movies, excellent quality."
Nevýhody: "Very crowded, otherwise okay."
Nevýhody: "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"
Výhody: "The captain kept us aware of the delay and the reasons for the delay."
Nevýhody: "No free food or drink other than water."
Výhody: "The seat was nice and movies onboard were entertaining."
Nevýhody: "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."
Výhody: "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."
Nevýhody: "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"."
Nevýhody: "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."
Výhody: "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."
Nevýhody: "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"
Nevýhody: "A lot of stress: our 1st leg IAD to Dublin was cancelled, than we got 2 set of tickets rebooked. On the way back there was a stress since we had a "problem with the ticket" Apparently the Aer Lingus made all those mistakes."
Nevýhody: "We flew with BA from Prague via Heathrow to San Diego on May 30 just day after they started operating normally after computer glitch. From Prague we were on time, When boarding in London started we were told to sit down again claiming Boeing 777 had equipment problem and they were waiting for parts to fix it. Our departure was delayed by 1 hour. Seats in economy class are really cramped so when seats are declined person behind can not eat without banging head into the back rest. Difficult to get in and out of seat as well. Arm rests do not come all the way up so one has to squat to avoid being hit by arm rest. Not very pleasant on 11 hour long flight. Joe"
Výhody: "Food and Drink were good!"
Nevýhody: "My husband and I weren't seated together. No matter how we try to change or ask for it even before check-in we couldn't change our seat locations. I am 5 months pregnant and it was not comfortable not having husband close to me, when in case of emergency I need something and he is not able to help right away."
Výhody: "The food and entertainment met our expectations. The crew was attentive and provided good service throughout our flight."
Nevýhody: "I prepaid for 3 seats in the front row of a coach section according to the diagram provided when I paid $75 per seat to reserve them. If I had known we would be placed back a row and not able to be more comfortable I would not have paid that fee. I do feel as though I was scammed for the $225 for reserving the seats."
Výhody: "Crew was great and very helpful."
Nevýhody: "The air pressure in the cabin didn't seem right, feet were swollen more than other international flights I have taken."
Výhody: "A very long flight but decent food, good entertainment and leg room surprisingly not bad"
Výhody: "I was traveling alone with my baby. Everyone was very helpful"
Výhody: "Travelled in business class so priority boarding was good Well planned boarding by different seat sections Crew attentive when needed but not intrusive"
Nevýhody: "Food selection not great Video screen brightness not working on my screen and so very difficult to watch movies"
Výhody: "The in-flight food was good"
Nevýhody: "Not being able to select seating for free at time of ticket purchase"
Nevýhody: "Took 1 1/2 hour to check in at counter. Agent spoke minimal english and directed Czech in one line and all others in another line. even when that line was only 2 or 3 persons and someone walked up only waited 5 minutes our line hardly moved. The agent did not care or understood that a lot of people may miss the flight. We arrived 2.5 hours early and barely made the flight."
Výhody: "entertainment crew comfort"
Nevýhody: "Terrible food, no option available online to order special meals, the restrooms were filthy and not looked after. We are never flying either British Airways or Aer Lingus in future. It was a big mistake !"
Výhody: "NOT A DAMN THING"
Nevýhody: "We booked on Kayak for a British Airways flight international--but it was a bait and switch. We ended up flying on American Airlines--the WORST! And our whole reason for booking British Airways was to avoid any US airline... We paid a premium, plus Kayak then sends you to a third party processor that charges you another $100 booking fee! American Airlines was terrible! Not even an entertainment center on on this flight (OLD PLANE THAT SHOULD BE TAKEN OUT OF SERVICE!). THIS WAS A BARE BONES PLANE> We will NEVER use KAYAK again."
Nevýhody: "The food vendor did not supply the right number of each type of meal so they ran out of 2 types of meals almost immediately. This made for frustrated customers & BA flight attendants apologizing for things that were not their direct mistake."
Nevýhody: "They ran out of food option so at a certain point the only option was mushroom risotto. Also my husban ordered a lactose free meal which he received but all the other snacks and meals on the flight included some type of lactose product."
Good economic flight Got me here
English language entertainment options.
It was a really long flight but Iberia made it less tiring with great food and great entertainment.
Delayed departure from Lisbon due to security issue but flight arrived on time in Madrid.
Nevýhody: "When you book BA and end up with Iberia, that’s definitely not what you want..."
Nevýhody: "Lost luggage. Took one hour waiting for my luggage in vain, and file the report of missing luggage."
Výhody: "Seats were comfortable and the crew was great."
Nevýhody: "While the entertainment system had good options, the screen was very unresponsive when pushing the buttons. On average, it would take me over 10 tries to get any on screen button to work. Gave up several times."
Nevýhody: "Nothing !! Thanks for everything"
Výhody: "The entertainment was ok."
Nevýhody: "The staff was rude and ignored me and the person who sat next to me drinks we ordered (just simple water and a coke). They offered a variety of meal options, yet when they got to me they said they only had a beef option so i had no other choice but when they went to the person behind me they had dif"
Výhody: "Tv, food, blanket with pillow"
Nevýhody: "Everything was wonderful"
Výhody: "Crew was friendly."
Nevýhody: "Couldn't find out online which gate my flight was leaving from. Long bus ride from jetway to plane. No in-flight entertainment, uncomfortable seats."
Výhody: "The crew was polite"
Nevýhody: "A canceled flight with poor rebooking and then another 90 minutes delay. 47 hours of travel from Israel to Cleveland"
Výhody: "Staff was very friendly"
Nevýhody: "We wanted to eat and there was no sandwiches left."
Nevýhody: "The space between seats was just microscopic. I’m 6ft tall and I really had a bad time in those 2h30, all twisted and unconfortable."
Výhody: "Food and entertainment were okay."
Nevýhody: "Iberia was unable to ticket us all the way through to our final destination when we checked-in at our origin (Faro). We then had to go through an arduous process to get handwritten boarding passes in Madrid. This put us at the end of the line for boarding. Then the gate agent refused to let us board because the boarding passes Iberia customer service wrote and stamped didn’t have ticket # on ithem. The gate agent made it clear that it was all on me to go back to the agent at customer service to get it addressed and make it back in-time. The other passenger was my 80 year old mother who a I had to leave unaccompanied at the gate so i’d have some chance of running across the terminal and making it back in-time, which fortunately I did. The complete lack of interest in helping or even acknowledging that this was their mistake is the reason why I will never fly Iberia again."
Nevýhody: "Legroom a little scarce on a 12-hour flight, even though I'm only 5'7" tall."
Nevýhody: "We had a terrible experience with iberia airlines,working with british airways.We almost missed our fl8ght as they cannot find info about e tickets in the computer(otherwise i had tge print out of our tickets). Truly it was a night mare for our family. But we are really glad that we were able to board in the nick of time and finally home ."
Výhody: "Once I understood how it worked it was a breeze"
Nevýhody: "Made more than four different lines before 1 understanding Iberia worker helped us out. Was told that that wasn’t the correct line and sent to another. The next place the same for more than 3 times. Then finally, Raquel, LISTENED, and away we went."
Výhody: "Very nice crew members!"
Nevýhody: "The food was So So. We had to take a bus to the plane out in the middle of the taxi area. Sat on the bus for several minutes be fore they would let us board."
Nevýhody: "The plane was too cold. It doesn't matter they give you a blanket it's uncomfortable and a waste of energy"
Nevýhody: "That plane was way to small for that long of a trip! Very very uncomfortable. No leg room and it got worse when the person sitting in front of me leaned his chair back!!!"
Výhody: "Food, Entertainment was state of the art for airlines that is, wine and beer available as choices"
Nevýhody: "No so friendly staff but OK, I've noticed other major airlines trying a little harder. but it was OK. It was difficult changing seat assignments and checking in online,"
Výhody: "Fast boarding, friendly staff, clean plane."
Nevýhody: "Not even a tiny snack as complimentary for a 3h flight."
Výhody: "Madrid's airport is comfortable and modern."
Nevýhody: "Unless you paid you do not even get a seat assigned until you get to the airport. No food or even drink unless you pay."
Nevýhody: "They didn’t let me check in or on the flight. Boarding was a disaster for others on my previous flight who were making this connection and British Airways, Iberia, and Kayak had TERRIBLE customer service when helping me (or refusing to help me) rebook my flight. I will never again use any of these companies. I’d rather walk to Europe."
Výhody: "Airport was spacious and gate area/aircraft clean"
Nevýhody: "Captain made. Or announcement other than twice very loudly to announce take off/landing to crew. Woke people up."
Nevýhody: "One of the shows I started watching on had one episode. Handmade tail?"
Výhody: "the AC worked. the last flight had warm air from the vents"
Nevýhody: "flight was delayed 3 hours to begin with.. it was unorganized....no apology was given whatsoever.. plane was a bit uncomfortable. flight crew looked unhappy..I like to see people smile."
Výhody: "Great flight overall. Good food, pleasant crew. Easy boarding process"
Nevýhody: "they had fancy touch screen TVs that at the beginning of the trip showed all the movie options... They then never activated during the entire transatlantic flight after takeoff."
Výhody: "The crew was nice and attentive. Leg room in the extra leg room seat was absolutely worth the extra fee."
Nevýhody: "Connectors always seem to be delayed causing late boarding."
Výhody: "I am of average height -6 feet- and my knees were touching the seat in front of me. Not comfortable but not too bad either."
Nevýhody: "Boarding was extremely chaotic."
Nevýhody: "There was no complimentary water provided"
Výhody: "Everything was pretty good"
Nevýhody: "The seats were kind of tight."
Nevýhody: "We were in JFK for over 24 hours being lied to and being promised that our flight to Madrid although late would leave that day. We were changed from boarding door to boarding door, we were told that there were no hotel rooms available in New York that they could place us in and told that they were testing a plane and as soon as it was confirmed it could fly we would be on it. At approx. 1am or a little after we (the passengers) from the flight were located at boarding door 7 and they brought an Iberia plane right by the windows in hopes that we would be put at ease at the sight of a possible flight only to find out that there are no flights out of JFK after 1am. The lies they told and or lack of truths was very frustrating"
Nevýhody: "Flt attendants unnecessarily bossy."
Nevýhody: "It was not British Airways, they put us on Iberia."
Výhody: "On time and great service by crew"
Výhody: "Crew was nice enough."
Nevýhody: "Boarding started very late and left airport late, somehow landed "on time" but without enough time or guidance to make connecting flight. Although arrived at gate before schedule flight time, were not allowed to board, missing the connecting flight and was then charged a ludicrous amount in fees. Will never travel again."
Výhody: "Everything flowed very smoothly desite the fact I had an irregularly shaped carry on. It was no problem, Staff were positive and acomodating and that lead to passengers being accommodating to each other. The intertainment was great, the only draws back is that I slept most of the time and wanted to watch another movie."
Nevýhody: "That I had to bother the person sitting next to me to get up when I wanted to go tot the bathroom, but he was very accommodating"
Výhody: "The entertainment was good and some flight attendants were very polite."
Nevýhody: "The last thing I would ever expect from a flight attendant is negligent behavior. A child aged around 5 years old clearly unattended by parents throughout the entire 9 1/2 hour flight to Chicago was not only being disruptive but his behavior could have placed him in danger. From banging the table shut successively against the chair, to walking on top of the seat and placing his hands in the monitor behind him not allowing me to see my screen. Furthermore, his feet and legs dangled and kicked the person immediately next to him across the aisle, creating a dangerous environment for himself and for others as he could have gotten hurt from somebody or a cart passing through. I proceeded to express my concern for the child's safety and the flight attendant expressed these matters are delicate and refused to engage the parent in any type of conversation. This child's screams and incessant yelling lasted the entirety of my flight, hindering ANYBODY from sleeping or watching their entertainment without interruption. Hopefully in the future when faced with not only an extremely disruptive family but a clinically uneasy child, flight attendants will make an effort to at least announce the importance of respecting other people's flight experience. Needless to say this is the very last time I ever fly Iberia. This matter was not only brought to the crew's attention once but three times by three different people."
Výhody: "The flight attendants are rude, the food is disgusting, and their customer service is non existent. My husband left his iPad on the plane, and realized as soon as we stepped off, but they refused to let us retrieve it. Instead, they went us through this ridiculous online process, where they determined they found the iPad, but "rejected our request to have it returned"!!!!!! The absolute worst!!"
Výhody: "Choice of entertainment: movies, tv shows, etc."
Nevýhody: "Wifi was >$50!"
Výhody: "Everything fine. Attendants very good"
Nevýhody: "Everything fine"
Nevýhody: "flight was late"
Výhody: "Efficient, friendly crew"
Nevýhody: "Rather boring meals Poor flight-following software"
Výhody: "The attendants/crew were kind and efficient"
Nevýhody: "worst seat on the plane. Off center from the isle. Off center tv. drop down table not available due to interference with service carts. Bumped into often by everyone that passes. Next to the bathrooms. 8+ hours of extraordinarily uncomfortable travel. I am 5'4 110 and fit easily in small spaces"
Výhody: "Short 2 hour hop to Heathrow, adequate seating, nothing challenging about this flight. Barcelona airport is very user friendly, open and expansive. Service was good on the flight."
Nevýhody: "Landed at heathrow, which is a sprawling airport and plenty of time required for the endless walking, bussing, and subway connections between terminals and gates. But efficient."
Nevýhody: "Flight was delayed over 2 hours. Entertainment was non-existent. They offered us pretzels which is hardly an inspiring food choice. Prior to boarding the airplane the alarm got triggered in the gate were waiting in, took over 10 min for them to deactivate it. Staff were seen just casually standing around."
Výhody: "Space, meals, movie selection"
