Selection of in flight entertainment was limited and sound quality was poor."

Cons: "It was so hot on the (delayed) flight"

Pros: "The crew were helpful and polite"
Cons: "The boarding process was too long and chaotic in Zurich The seats are uncomfortably close together and there is not enough room to move at all.

Cons: "Boarding started 20 mins late, once on board was moved to accommodate a family to sit together. No objection to them sitting together but how is it possible that they’re in that situation to begin with. Flight was overbooked so crew offering cash to delay for a later flight, which on a Sunday evening is an unappetising proposect"

Cons: "We Flew business class. Very ordinary."

Pros: "We got to our destination"
Cons: "They don’t even give you a cup of water, a horrible low cost airline with premium pretences! Gatwick is a horrible airport to fly to."

Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Crew cheerful"
Cons: "Beyond their control. Flight delayed 50 mins"

Pros: "One amazing member of staff - she was the only redeeming person of all the cabin crew. The snacks were good (mini cheddars, mini twix bars and mcvities digestives)."
Cons: "EVERYTHING, but top 3 are: comfort (seats are TINY), legroom (there isn’t any), entertainment (very limited). Lastly, I think I’ll have to gauge out my eyes and ears if I have to endure their safety video one more time..."

Pros: "Crew ok, seat ok"
Cons: "Flight on time"

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "flight was delayed about 2 hours. First hour waited in the plane. Why they've boarded us if we were not able to take off and had to wait in the aircraft? Near Heathrow, we took loops for about one hour. Expensive and offering nothing, no luggage, no seat selection, no meal on board. BA worst than lo"

Pros: "American Airlines had awesome customer service, smooth flight, comfortable and seats were roomy for economy."

Pros: "Direct flight. That’s it."
Cons: "Boarding - via a bus at LHR T3. Comfort - Cramped “ Club Europe” seat with minimal legroom - same as in economy. Food - disgraceful “tapas” dish of literally one scrap of ham, an equally small piece of cheese and half a scotch egg. Crew - disinterested to the point of surliness. Entertainment - none, this being BA short haul (others can manage it but not BA)"

Cons: "We love everything was our first time and was excellent"

Pros: "Seat and space in plane"
Cons: "the old part of Nairobi In Airport... JKIA .....is appalling and the boarding procedure very tedious and uncomfortable Inflight entartainement is as old as the plane... built in the 80's"

Pros: "Amazing crew, kind and patient"

Cons: "The boarding crew forced us to check-in our handbags saying there's no space on board. The flight was half empty. We had to wait 30 mins to get our luggages when we arrived. Very annoying."

Cons: "One of the worst experience I’ve had, if not the worst. Lack of communication between flight attendants at gate was the main reason for missing our flight, after 2 delays from the previous flight. When we got to the gate they closed it at that moment, earlier than it should have. A Mr. Fenney, person in charge at the gate, didn’t help much. Just went through the motion and as slow as possible trying to help us. It seemed he just wanted to pretend he was helping us. Worse was his attitude when telling is the gate has already closed, didn’t do anything to help us, nothing at all. We had to literally get information out of him. We then went to customer service were the same thing happened, a lack of care that we missed our flight due to things out of our control. Even to the point where the agent told us “be sure to be there on time this time”, like if it was our fault we missed it (we told her the details of our situation). Till this point they don’t seem to care. They left about 15 people, that i know of, hanging. If they had better comunication between gates and waited a miserably 5 more minutes (although they closed the gate earlier then they should have) everyone would have made it. Throughout the whole process we noticed that american airlines employees did not care that many on that first flight had connection flights. They were just going through the motion, slowly while all of us were a bit desperate knowing that the layover time was going to be very close."

Pros: "Staff and food"
Cons: "TSA lack of checking my suitcase in a timely manner caused us to lose our connecting flight to

Pros: "Courtesy of tge british airway staff"

Pros: "Crew was very attentive and food and drink good as on most flight to and from City Airport. Seats very comfortable compared to main fleet. City Flyer is still worth paying the extra which most flight by main fleet ex Heathrow or Gatwick are not."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and boarding not great as we were kept waiting in a hot bus outside the aircraft for 15 minutes"

Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "The food"

Pros: "Good smooth journey"
Cons: "There was no entertainment"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled with no notice.or explanation Stuck at Heathrow no alternatives available. We are a party of 7 3 young children and 1 disabled passenger . Now one of us flys tomorrow via Madrid, and palma before mahon. All others fly Sunday via Barcelona. Hol ruined disgrace"

Pros: "No entertainment and no vegetarian selections in the menu unless you book in advance again the plane was dirty"

Pros: "On time good flight"

Pros: "It got me to my destination safely."
Cons: "Everything- BA’s relentless push downmarket means it’s justbtoo awful for words. Ryanair with better livery but more expensive."

Pros: "I was very well looked after by crew."

Cons: "I had a connecting flight from London to Madrid. Not only was the flight to London late over an hour, because of the security check point and liquid quantity confusion I was late to the connecting flight to Madrid and had to take a later flight which made me late to my meeting but on top of that I had to get rid of some of my stuff because it was over my limit on liquids. Very frustrating!"

Pros: "The man at the customer service desk in london airport was nife."

Cons: "As per above"

Pros: "The flight from SFO to London was excelent. Espessialy crew members who Were very caring and helpfull and really nice. The food was very good, as well as entertainment choices. The flight from London to Madrid was ok. The flight was delayed but the captain kept us updated. We were comfortable waiting on the plane. The were no food (only for purchase) nor entertaiment on board, not actually needed since its a short flight. The crew presense was almost non-existent. They were staying or sitting there but, for example, didnt try to help family with crying little son. Im sure that crew ladies from sfo/madrid flight would do. Overall very pleasant experience."

Pros: "Cabin Crew flight data punctuality"

Cons: "Everything well. No issues"

Pros: "Security check was quick and easy."
Cons: "The flight left 35 minutes late but arrived on time"

Pros: "Last minute flight (booked 4 hours before departure), one way, economy, for €99 from Amsterdam to Edinburgh via Gatwick. Long layover at Gatwick (around 3 hours), but I had much work to do anyway, so time went faster than I realised. Not sure if this was the case at Schiphol, but at Gatwick had priority security queue as a BA customer."

Pros: "I took this flight to Madrid after missed the connection from a delayed takeoff. It was spacious l!"
Cons: "The crew did not get my luggage on the plane in time so it was left in London for a day and I had no luggage."

Pros: "Not much, flights were on time is the only positive"
Cons: "Turbulence (other airlines went out of their way to avoid it, by BA didn’t seem to care), BA has got rid of in flight services - so what am I paying so much for? - and made me exit and re-enter through security despite the fact that I’d checked in for a connecting flight. Overall not a positive experience and don’t think I’ll be rushing to fly with them again."

Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Nothing wrong"

Pros: "Well run and organized"
Cons: "They had no sandwiches for purchase even thought it was a mid day flight"

Pros: "So the 777 WTP is definitely more comfortable than the 787. Much better than the Beijing leg outbound. Entertainment option also improved as outbound they hadn’t changed since August."
Cons: "Dining options in WTP poor with breakfast being a major fail. English was potatoes, spinach, beans and mushrooms. Alternative was the same but with a slice of tomato replacing the beans and spinach. Inedible."

Pros: "Excellent flight."
Cons: "Cramped and no free tea/coffee"

Pros: "Polite crew, flight was on time landing - even early. Seats were comfortable."

Pros: "Video was good, seats were good."
Cons: "Man doing the check-in in Madrid (site 909) was very rude and unhelpful."

Cons: "The plane had no entertainment inflight"

Cons: "Food was ok"

Pros: "Food is poor , pasta have not taste n the portion not enoug"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and one started bording it when ok."
Cons: "It was delayed, as normally, 45 mins this time. Awful experience going through security in CDG I would avoid that airport at all cost. Randomly making you wait luggage before security, with add extra 30 mins to the security processes, not sympathy of staff even if flight people may miss their flight."

Pros: "Wide body plane A330"
Cons: "Seats too narrow. No individual TVs, no entertainment, not even a music channel available."

Cons: "Flight attendants were very rude apart from that it was great"

Cons: "Did not like sharing a screen with the entire plane. Wish there was individual screens behind the seats."

Cons: "The delay"

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Air Europa lost my bag for 6 days. I picked it up at the airport finally the 7th day of my trip. They found it on day 3 but took 4 entire days to ship it from Boston. Awful. We were also delayed 3 hours in Madrid with no compensation, we got a "snack" voucher that totaled $5. It was terrible and I will never fly this airline again."

Pros: "Overall the flight was fine."
Cons: "My connection in Madrid was bad. I arrived at gate E82 and had to get to A8. Terminals are laid out sequentially and it was quite a walk, with a passport check before the B terminal. Even with an hour and a half layover I had no time to spare going straight there."

Pros: "The boarding was easy. Having a blanket and pillow at my seat."
Cons: "The delay and short time between flights to get to gate and get through customs. Having no in flight entertainment for a 7.5 hour flight. There was not a vegetarian snack option for my daughter."

Pros: "The flight was easy to board when it was time. We left and arrived on time."
Cons: "There was only one person initially checking people in. Then when there was a second person, she was going to make us move to the end of the other line after waiting 30 minutes. She did end up taking us, but it was only after conceding that."

Cons: "I was upset because I had no television the entire trip. Very bored. Nothing to read."

Pros: "The price was great for a direct flight from Boston to Madrid."
Cons: "The plane was very, VERY old and extremely uncomfortable. This was an overnight flight, they turned down the cabin light for the first ten minutes but then it was on for four hours, making it impossible to sleep. There was no in flight movie, and there was no way to turn off the antiquated cumbersome seat TV. Really awful to get off the plane and be exhausted. They didn't offer food to the inside rows, only to the window side. When you asked you got an annoyed glare."

Pros: "Great price to value ratio, attentive crew, good food. Wifi available."
Cons: "Older panes with no phone jack charging options. What's the use of Wifi if your battery runs low or dies. They have charging ports in Business Class. I don't remember the last time I was on a plane with at least phone charging ports."

Pros: "Price was great, flight crew very attentive, even the food was good."
Cons: "The seats didn't have a port to charge phones. Older planes with antiquated tech. Monitors on back of seats were also outdated. Plane was late leaving Madrid."

Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Crew skipped us for dinner but when we pointed it out they came back. But they skipped us again for water/drinks."

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Air temperature inside too hot."

Pros: "terminal E7 was filled about 15 AE personnel standing around doing not much of anything. Not even simple announcement welcoming or informing the customers of why its flight was delayed. They were busy greeting their own VIP's heading in and out of the business class. When asked what's going on, the AE personnel simply stated 'just wait'"
Cons: "At the security, i was turned away because TSA will not take Air Europa's electronic boarding pass. When I went back to the check in counter, I asked why, no answer from three people at the check in standing around. Again, indifferent attitude. Shouldn't AE inform customers of this time wasting problem? No self check in kiosks."

Cons: "Website not working. I had to call and was sent a PDF boarding pass without a barcode. I ended queuing at the checkin counters again."

Pros: "One of the best international flights I have taken. Comfortable (as much as a plane can be for 9 hours), good food and service, lots of free movie options."

Pros: "Great value for the money, pleasant crew, good food, and comfortable seating."
Cons: "In flight entertainment limited to a few small TVs in the center."

Pros: "Nice aircraft, nice crew"
Cons: "Had trouble confirming flight on their mobile app, then suddenly it worked. At airport kiosk, for printed ticket, was only in Spanish German and French. Muddled through that and got printout. Then to find out onboard they would even charge for water?"

Cons: "No outlets!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "- you need to pay for everething !!!!"

Pros: "Nothing that called my attention"
Cons: "- Food was ok but you can do everything by the mobile app but not ask for special food. - entertainment took like 40 min to start working - limited number of movies"

Pros: "Pretty standard experience on this flight for what you pay."
Cons: "Delayed. No transparency. Not a single detail with the passengers despite waiting for 2 hours at the airport."

Pros: "Smooth process and quick check in."
