Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Didn’t even take off!"
Cons: "My flight got canceled but nobody responded from flyus.com"
Pros: "Flight attendants were excellent, food service very good. If the service is so good in economy, I can't imagine how nice it would be to fly in business class. I would fly Qatar Airlines all the time if the price is right."
Cons: "Economy row seats don't give you enough space for your legs between rows, but this is a systemic problem among airlines. You have to live with it or move up to business class."
Cons: "Not a lot other than better choice of movies and music. Super airline as always"
Pros: "The portion for LAX to Doha was fairly comfortable and crew was helpful.. they kept running out of meal options by the time they reached us mid flight .. Doha to Bengaluru portion was less classy— the TV/ remotes etc didn’t work well and overall service not as good .."

Cons: "When a very large man is placed next to someone else who is in a middle seat and cannot use the arm rests on either side, I would think the hostesses would make an effort to move one of the three considering there were multiple other open seats. He was also very old and could hardly stand up when needed. It was the most uncomfortable flight, if I had the money, I would definitely fly business class"

Pros: "The entertainment was reasonable, I enjoyed the festive choices."

Pros: "I really like the Qatar flight from Auckland to Manchester. But beware now that the Akl leg leaves 1 hour later the transit in Doha is officially 1.15hr. But since the first leg is always getting in and you have to bus to the terminal, transit time is about 30 mins. Although they are efficient and i made it this time, i wouldn't want to do this with kids."

Pros: "In-flight crew was excellent."
Pros: "Nothing was spectacular."
Cons: "No lounge in Philadelphia took my Priority Pass. On the flight, the woman in front of me threw her chair back without asking and almost had hot coffee all over me. When I asked her to put her chair up, she got mad. She went to staff to insist she could put her chair back. I showed them that I was indeed in a back brace for a health condition and that I needed opportunities to move and shift, cross legs to release tension, etc. Staff sided with the rude woman, who, given the chance to move to an equal seat on the opposite aisle where she could recline, refused to move. I was very frustrated and have never been treated with such discrimination regarding my health concerns."
Pros: "empty seat next to me!"
Cons: "more cramped than akld to doha"

It also took 3 hours because of UAE and Qatar :("

Cons: "The head phones are terrible."
Pros: "Crew and flight itself was great."

Pros: "Comfortable, on time and as always good service from Turkish Airlines"
Pros: "I didn’t like anything. Or maybe the only thing I liked is getting to my destination so I don’t have to be flown by that terrible airline anymore."
Cons: "The fact that Turkish airline clearly is too stingy to take proper care of their passengers. You don’t provide accommodation when people get a stopover which is disgusting considering it is an airline that is supposed to represent a developed country. This cancels out anything you feel is a plus about the airline. This needs to be sorted out."
Cons: "Boarding was very annoying because when you go through security they make you feel like a total criminal for no reason. Checking our laptops as if we have something to hide. We already went through 3 security checks prior to boarding the flight. Security staff was extremely rude and inconsiderate for peoples belongings."
Cons: "The worst airline I have ever flown with, worst disruption management. No care for customers."
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight in Turkey as flight was delayed. It was my worst flight experience because nobody wanted to help me. It took an hour of being ignored by various TA staff to eventually get my boarding pass to the next available flight to London. I nearly missed that one as well because of it. The staff in Turkey was rude and unhelpful and most didn’t understand English properly. There were a number of others having the same issues, it was an awful experience."

Pros: "All is good"
Pros: "their services in the plain and they are very discipline as well"

After being delayed for two hours out of Rome to Istanbul and missing our connection to Jeddah with hundreds of other stranded passengers from the other flights, Turkish Airlines incompetent handling had us wait in multiple ques for more than five hours only to provide us a hotel for two hours and then shuttle back to a flight 12 hours later! I have yet to hear an explanation from anyone about what happened or a simple sorry for your trouble. This is operational incompetence at full display. Never Again!"

Cons: "I flew economy and all was good and appropriate to the level."
Cons: "Keep the temperature at a more reasonable level. Blankets + two layers of clothing was definitely not enough."
Pros: "Muslim food"
Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"

Pros: "Crew was amazing, seats were comfortable with enough leg space even without choosing extra space seats. It was my childhood dream come true to fly with KLM. It was really an exciting trip for me, just that it was short."

When they arrived on Amsterdam Netherlands Airport they were dropped to the gate assigned first and once the gate changed on the fly no body came to help them moving to the new gate assigned which was far away to walk. Nobody even came to tell them that the gate has been changed. It was because of my father's alertness they didn't miss the connecting flight and when my father asked help to members on airport none of them helped my parents and other 4 co passengers which also were on wheel chairs. It was so scary experience for them that they asked me not to book any more flights with Jet Airways. I won't recommend Jet Airways to any of my friends for their parents to travel to USA. I strongly recommend you guys to take a strict action against this. This is so unacceptable."
Cons: "I ordered Wheel chair for my parents but one of them didn't get it at all. When my parents were checking in for flight they asked the representative about meal selection and she didn't answer their questions properly and because of that my mom didn't get proper Hindu Vegetarian food on flight instead she got Egg omelet which she couldn't eat. She has to eat just fruits. My mother is a diabetic patient and she needs a food every after some time. I never had such a bad experience before with any other airlines."

Cons: "No such things"
Pros: "Comfort was better than on the previous Dash-8. Food was OK."

Pros: "Interior of the plane was clean. Smooth landing."
Cons: "Pilot did not avoid turbulence"
Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."
Cons: "Our total flight time was about 17 hours - MAD- AMS-LAX. My husband and I both have an internationally approved carry on luggages with us. When we checked in - they asked us to both check in our carry on luggage. The reason why is because they said they don’t think they have enough space for our carry ons. I told the crew member checking us in that other people that was checking in with the same hand carry size luggage with us had no problems taking it with them. For being about to be on a 17 HOUR FLIGHT we should be ALLOWED to have our carry ons with us! We take carry ons for that reason! I had to argue and prove my case to the crew member to atleast keep 1 carry on with us. I thought that was an UNACCEPTABLE reason for us to check in a carry on luggage when we had a 17 hour travel time ahead of us. Not a happy costumer here."
Pros: "did not get the flight,because of no not given correct notice"
Cons: "don't know,flight missed..virgi s fault 100%"

Pros: "Overall satisfied."
Pros: "Efficient airline, friendly staff."
Cons: "Can't blame the airline but getting through terminals is time consuming in Abu Dhabi. Seats are small and hard but I felt excellent value for money."
Cons: "14 hours connection time and they don't offer hotel/meal accommodation that airlines like Qatar Airways do. I inquired about the hotel within the airport and it costs $300 for 8 hours. Ridiculous. There is no place to sleep properly in the airport, I saw people laying down on the floor."
Cons: "Getting more minimal on the food service. Emirate have more and better quality"
Cons: "The crew is the most arrogant and ill mannered from all the other international airlines I have flown with - so please be ready for a very unwelcome experience. I had also worded this out as a complain to them, but received a very lukewarm and uninterested reply."
Pros: "Good value for money."
Cons: "Slow processing at boarding with unnecessary additional bag search."
Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "Bigger and more comfortable seats"
Pros: "Good quality overall from Etihad"
Cons: "Selection of movies/tv was pretty dire and the wifi was awful."
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "There are a number of things that Etihad do that just degrade the quality and experience of the flight and I probably wouldn’t fly with them again as a result. I’ve listed these below: 1) Entertainment system is poorly appointed and travel in two seperate months found that little had been refreshed on the in flight programs. 2) The entertainment system is deactivated until the seat belt sign is turned off, and is deactivated again about 30 minutes prior to landing. 3) You practically have to cut off your arm to get some water. I would always bring my own water on the flight, but Australian regulations prevent more than 100mls being carried on flight. 4) The service is inconsistent, some staff are just downright rude and others are incredibly friendly. The time waiting after pressing the call bell is excessive and in one case my drink never arrived. 5) Unlike other airlines, they don’t give you a “menu” to chose from for the inflight meal. Instead they just come around asking “Chicken, Lamb or vegetarian”, and lack any real understanding of what’s actually in the food. 6) When you order a drink, they open the can pour some into a cup but don’t give you the remainder in the can. 7) The inflight wifi is expensive. 19.95 USD for 180mb puts them at one of the most expensive. Overall, I would have expected a bit more from an airline such as Etihad."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant and visible."
Cons: "Food quality was pretty poor. It used to be so good. I had sea bass which was so dry. There were a group of 30 people travelling together. They monopolised the lobby bar and were rowdy and noisy despite requests from the crew. The flat bed is so hard, it needs a mattress."
Cons: "The food was seriously too small in portion! Had to go hungry on a full service 14hr flight!"
Cons: "I booked 2 tickets but it was not allowing me to check-in as well as seat selection online"
Pros: "Comfort in the plane and hospitality from the crew"
Cons: "Food served during dinner"
Pros: "Clean & tidy planes. Good service. Sufficient legroom for me - I'm six foot two inches tall & the 787 was great. Much more room than the airbus we flew to Athens on from Tel Aviv."
Pros: "Seat upgrade in response to complaint"
Cons: "Etihad website did not allow check in and seat allocation until arrival at the airport. This meant that, despite having booked months before and making numerous attempts to complete web check in, my wife and I would have been placed in the centre two seats of a block of 4 seats. The check in process makes Ryanair look excellent!"
Pros: "Used their larger A380 plane Good boarding and inflight service"
Pros: "Crew tried to make the best of the situation. Food"
Cons: "How do you seat my wife, my 2 year old daughter and me all seperatly from each other and since our first flight from London refuse to change our seats for us. Knowing that we couldn’t choose our seats when checking in initially!!! We were not the only ones separated on this trip and we all had to sweet talk each other so we could swap and sit together. This makes the life of the crew so hard as it is not their fault and clearly many people were affected!! Lastly stop using small planes for your Brisbane flights!!!!!!! We pay good money and deserve better. This is not the first time"
Cons: "Boarded by bus"
Pros: "Could not fault anything... great boarding. Service, food and flightsnothing...."
Cons: "Nothing..... the staff could not be more helpful if they tried"

Pros: "Aircraft was very good"
Cons: "Food very poor, staff mediocre"
Cons: "Very old aircraft"
Cons: "Tv Options"
Pros: "I go an email that this flight has not been purchased. I had to call the company directly to purchase. Kayak website never made any correction in the my trips section. Which made me believe falsely that I have a confirmed booking."
Cons: "Boarding not good no line turebel"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable even though it was full. Punctual too."
Cons: "Not able to check in on line. Had to queue for 50 minutes at the check in desk. The passport control was almost as bad . I arrived at the airport 1 hour and 45 minutes before departure. By the time I had check in and pass through passport control and security it was just 20 minutes until flight departure time"
Pros: "Flight attendants are nice enough."
Cons: "1. On FCO-AUH route, my son’s entertainment system did not work. We informed the flight attendant and she said it has to be reset but did not come back to do something about it. 2. On AUH-MLA route, my entertainment system is so unresponsive. The touch screen does not work, so I had to use the manual controls. 3. Repetitive advertisements 4. Movies are old, not updated. 5. Food is not so satisfactory."
Pros: "Travelled in Airbus 380 for the firstvtime and I was impressed by size of the plane and comfort in economy class. Enough of leg space to bend my leg and avoid bad blood circulation. Overall comfortable flight."
Cons: "Again I found behaviour of few Crew Members a bit rute for instance i asked hor headphone from one of the attendant and she immediately told me that it cannot be missing as she put the headphone there by herself making me feel like as if i stole the headphones. I was bit speechless though i really wanted to reply to her but it would have been rude. Second thing I did not like about flight was foir serving. In our over 7 hour flight, we were just served breakfast in the morning just 2 hours before landing. Its not healthy to keep customers hungry what if the customer is diabetic. Airline need to understand that up in the sky we are dependent on them for our basic needs and it should be respected."
Pros: "Aircraft, crew, comfort, ground staff."
Cons: "Food and entertainment are average. Movies are old."
Pros: "Prompt departures and arrivals"
Cons: "Lack of leg space and the food"
Pros: "Nothing! Except the fare was low."
Cons: "This time The experience was super horrible! Took almost 1hr 30 mins to get boarding pass. I had 2 suit case one was 24.5 kg and other one was 25 kg, they wanted me to pay $132 for each bag or take out stuff to make it 23kg. Never met someone that horrible who doesn’t want to let it go. I requested the wheelchair and they dont wana give it to me, I had no choice but to call their supervisor and eventually got wheelchair only from jfk to abu dhabi. Worse experience."
Pros: "Food and entertainment was good"
Cons: "If your someone with mild restless leg syndrome, go business class or the leg room package or you will be miserable."
Pros: "SERVICE VERY GOOD"
Cons: "FOOD NO GOOD AT ALL"
Pros: "USA customs done in Abu Dhabi"
Cons: "I will never fly or recommend etihad to any one of my friends or family."
Pros: "The movies were okay."
Cons: "The fellow traveller next to me was a large man who unfortunately spilled over onto me, either his legs pushed mine away or his arms covered mine underneath his. Then as it was a night flight, he fell asleep and snored in my ear - I didn't get any sleep at all. All in all it wasn't a nice experience."
Pros: "The crew das really nice"
Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "Air con too cold"
Pros: "Flight was on time, food was average ."
Cons: "Crew was bit rude"
Pros: "food was great!"
Cons: "Same crew not that friendly"
Pros: "That me and my son had a extra seat each"
Cons: "Wasn't served any food at all. And I had to go and get my own water from the staff"
Pros: "Nothing. Would never take this airline again. And would tell everyone to never take this airline."
Cons: "I checked in 10 hours early for my flight and no one told me that I was bumped out of my flight because they were overbooked until one hour before takeoff. Then a gate attendant had the nerve to ask me if I was Vip. When I said no, she said she couldn’t help me and I had to wait for the next flight which was the next day. When I complained to a manager, they let me through security to get on standby for the flight and I was the last one to get on the flight. Their service is awful!!"
Cons: "Same type of food. They ran out dinner so served the previous entree. Turn the crew light on for water. No air hostesses showed up."
Pros: "We ended up being delayed on the flight for about 3 hours due to fog in Abu Dhabi— delays are always frustrating but the crew was absolutely fantastic. The head of cabin crew personally came by to explain the problem and made he passengers feel welcome. Excellent service all around, especially when the situation is unpleasant but not within anyone’s control."
Pros: "I’ve been very disappointed with the lack of cleanliness of the aircraft and the disregard of the aircraft overall. It was quite old, fair enough, but there where some missing pieces here and there that didn’t make me feel safe. The flight overall was good, British Airways crew are always very competent and professional, which is the reason why I mainly fly with BA. But this is the first time I had some concerns on the lack of safety checks especially because I travelled with my 2 years old son."
Cons: "Please see answer above. The aircraft should have been maintained."
Pros: "Crew and pilot great."
Cons: "Toilet was dirty."
Cons: "Needs WiFi"
Pros: "Food was unusually good for airplane food"
Cons: "Leg room"
Cons: "For an hour and one half flight the seats were tolerable. Anything longer than that would have been torture."
Cons: "The phone number to contact BA in Italy started with 02, didn’t work with a cell phone needs a country code. The check in staff were ok, but the disability support staff in both Rome and London were EXCELLENT and the cabin crew were great."
Cons: "Despite most of the plane being offered refreshment I never was as staff not organised enough to have time to do so, even though other airlines have managed easily."
Cons: "Error on kayak.com resulted in me losing approx. £600 and having to take the issue to the small claims court."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Not applicable."
Cons: "This was like a Ryanair flight for 4 or 5 times the price."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Swat comfort. Boarding. Crew warmth (at least pretend you don’t hate your job)."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Leg room!"
Pros: "quick boardling, good flight, enough personal space in business class"
Cons: "I do wish passengers would sit until the seatbelt signs are off and not all jump up and open the over heard bins and drop things"
Pros: "I flew with my sister who has disability. Check in was very smooth and the Spanish lady who checked us in at Heathrow airport took our hand luggage which was really nice as we could just take care of our wheelchair."
Cons: "BA should consider to serve complementary coffee and tea on board. Such a little thing, but could make a huge difference."
Pros: "Very comfy business class. Had a very good sleep."
Cons: "When queuing for boarding, some other classes queued on the the same line which made the queue very long. However there was no staff checking."
Cons: "Flight was very delayed. Business lounge was poor"
Pros: "Comfortable new plane, friendly staff."
Cons: "Not having over an hour delay followed by buses to disembark resulting in a missed connection."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Pros: "Excellent crews"
Cons: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Food - my dog wouldn’t eat it, Entertainment - woeful same movie just different title, Late again they must specialise in being late"
Pros: "The plane got from a to b safely"
Cons: "The food was dreadful. Both the gluten free and regular meals. Tasteless and unimaginative. Very dodgy landing. The time of arrival given by the airline prior to flying did not take into account the fact that the clocks went back. So our pickup was delayed. Not good at 4 am"
Pros: "Pilot was informing us about the reason for slight delay. Can not comment on food or entertainment ."
Cons: "British Airways introduced boarding by groups Inspite of my plea for my husband who recently undergone heart surgery he had to stand and queu until our group number was allowed to enter the plane. We have been told very firmly by taciturn lady at Fumicino Rome that this are new rules nad they are to be obeyed! compassion is not forte in our experience of British Airways."
Cons: "My daughter and I were bumped off flight. We also had problems checking in. Luckily Alitalia were able to accommodate"
Pros: "Boarding pass to from LHR to Hyderabad was not iisued at SAT airport. The guy with wheelchair at London didn't help in getting me boarding pass in time. My flight scheduled left. I had to wait for the next flight enroute to Delhi rather than hyderabad directly. I had to wait for more than 10 Hrs at LHR and Delhi. There was heavy delay to reach my destination."
Cons: "Non-issue of boarding pass from LHR to Hyderabad at SAT airport USA. Callous attitude of the guy who didn't help me in getting me the boarding pass at LHR. Enrouting me through Delhi to Hyderabad instead of a direct flight I had to wait for more than 10 Hrs at LHR and Delhi. There was heavy delay to reach my destination."
Pros: "The wheelchair services at both Rome and Heathrow were superb. The lady who checked us in in Rome was extremely helpful."
Cons: "Food in business class could be better. One toilett in business class was unusable. At leadt 1 in economy cladd was also unusable."
Cons: "Used to be good when you got food and drink"
Pros: "Once again BA 297 was more than an hour late departing because BA could not get bags and cargo loaded."
Cons: "See above. If BA cant get A380 loaded for on time departure, get more baggage handlers or use a different aircraft."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant enough"
Cons: "British airways is always delayed, I never make my connection, I had to be rescheduled on the way there and on the way home"
Pros: "At least we were able to wait in the lounge."
Cons: "One of the jet bridges malfunctioned. Had to board >500 passengers via remaining bridge. An hour late departing."
Pros: "The food was excellent. The service was one of the better ones."
Cons: "The forwyand rear facing business class seating is ok. But the window seats on the 2-3-2 configuration needs so me workout to get in and out. For a large person like me it was cramped and extremely claustrophobic."
Cons: "Ran out of food. Credit card machine didn't work,Crew can't take cash. Lots of shrugs and 'not our fault'. Better service from the low cost carriers. Expected better from ba."
Cons: "They even charge for water, just like Easy Jet and the low price airlines. BA doesn’t accept US credit cards online, nor do they accept cash. The simple drink service takes forever. I feel sorry for the flight attendants who have to fill out paper credit card forms if you present an American credit card. It’s like we are back in the 1970s. Ridiculous. It’s a $45/bag charge to check your bag. That’s almost double the standard $25 for American carriers. May try to avoid BA in the future."
Pros: "That there was help from the beginning to the end of the flight."
Pros: "Almost nothing on this flight."
Cons: "Boarded on time then 40 minute delay before take off. After we landed the plane came to a sudden stop and the Captain told us the lights to guide us to the appropriate place were not working this was a long delay. When we got to the disembarking area we had another long wait and the reason was due to the bridge not working,eventually we went out the back of the plane. The most unbelievable problem was the announcement just before take off that both rear toilets were out of action,since the flight was late this was an issue and I do not believe that both toilets could be broken more likely that there was no person available to clean them."
Pros: "Good leg room, good service from staff and left early"
Cons: "Did not have food so can't comment but tea was cold, however cabin crew more than happy to change it. no other negatives to think of"
Pros: "Crew was very professional and friendly. Service was quite efficient."
Cons: "Business class was 3x3 with the middle seat locked up with the tray table. First time that I’d seen this... looked strange."
Pros: "Good entertainment."
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "Flight at a very inconvenient early time, though booked months ahed. The aircraft had no leg room at all, being excessively uncomfortable. You could not stay in the market with this rubbish in Australia."
Pros: "On time. Nice scenery. Cordial crew. All food costs extra. Completely full. Glad it was only 2 hrs."
Cons: "All food costs extra. Seats cost money (no thanks, I’ll stand). Every seat booked, so i suspect some didn’t make it."
Pros: "Best flight I’ve ever been on. International is always better but it was more like flying in the days of old when you weren’t just a body in a seat. Thanks BA"
Pros: "Long haul service and food has improved but service is still kinda ‘cold’. Cabin crew still wears a frown most of the time."
Cons: "The reclining mechanism is not user friendly whereby the chair does not recline smoothly. Unfortunately it falls too quickly and not allow the passenger in the back row to get out of the way. a must thing to improve."
Pros: "The on time arrival"
Cons: "That even non alcoholic drinks costs The gate agent provided misleading information"
Pros: "Food was tasty"

I need to update your aircraft’s .... when I do Lhr - NYE the aircraft’s are much better.... all my business friends have now shifted to Emirates because of the service and aircraft’s..... I keep flying BA because of the convenience of the direct flight and loyalty I have for the airline..... but we deserve better aircraft’s....."
Pros: "Crew were excellent. Very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Boxes under the seat in front took up legroom (but it did ensure good entertainment options). Could have offered some more drinks."
