Cons: "Lost luggage’s. Delayed trip"
Cons: "Kayak sold me a “lite” ticket on Swiss, but never mentioned that it didn’t include baggage. Even though Swiss is Star Alliance they didng count my Star Alliance Gold status for free bags and didn’t offer an upgrade. Zurich was incredibly hot and the airport didn’t have air conditoning anywhere. The boarding was worse than Ryan Air. The plane was okd and super uncomfortable. staff was rude and not at all helpful. Swiss is definitely a budget air line!!!!"

Cons: "Seating upholstery needs to be replaced. Faux leather upholstery has cracks. The seat next to mine kept coming off."
Cons: "French unions"
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: "My luggage being lost both from Toronto to Zurich and from Zurich to Toronto. Air Canada took nearly 4 days to get my baggage to me in Toronto, as a result of which I was unable to attend a funeral in Chicago. I was lied to over and over by air Canada. The entire experience was horrible."

Cons: "Will never use Lufthansa again"
Pros: "As previously stated hated having to go through security again"
Cons: "Well,my whole trip was an adventure! Problem with my checked in bag, so i had to pay 22 pounds extra to fit it in a connection flight and now i have to send receipt to get the refund. On my way back, there was a delay, so i missed the flight and the checked in bag"
Pros: "The crew was friendly. The seating was ok but dirty floors"
Pros: "Very Organised and punctual"
Pros: "Everything except delay"
Pros: "It was not immediately apparent that boarding was in a completely different terminal which was accessible by train, so this lack of info could have cost me arriving in good time as I thought I had sufficient time. I aldo found ground staff at the customer service desk very unsympathetic and unhelpful when I asked for assistance on grounds of ill health. They were quite condescending ."
Cons: "Ground staff poor customer service"
Cons: "I don't know why all airlines don't have a more orderly system for boarding by zones (like Delta). Lufthansa and Swiss both just have a mob of people blocking the boarding area and hindering people who shoud actually be boarding to get through."
Pros: "Very friendly crew, great seats in economy with lots of legroom."
Pros: "The flight was adequate."
Cons: "Sandwich was extremely unappetising and there were no hot drinks. The worst thing was that in transiting from the SAA flight to the Lufthansa flight we were obliged to go through security which seems unnecessary. The security staff were awful. Bullying, rude and totally unsympathetic to the fact that having brought water from the first plane to the second plane we had to either drink it or throw it away. One guy in particular, a tall greying man evoked the worst stereotypes of brutal secret policemen. Perhaps he formerly worked for Stasi or he was having testosterone problems. Totally unacceptable behaviour."
Cons: "1hr 20 minutes late"
Pros: "great over all experiance. Don't let the other negative reviews put you off"
Pros: "The Lufthansa app provides updates on plane status and gate number, etc."
Pros: "Did manage to get priority transfer which I requested from Dubrovnik but was told. “We do not do those”"

Pros: "Attitude of staff"
Cons: "Food and delay"
Pros: "Short trip"
Pros: "See above"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and this is consistent with my previous experiences with Lufthansa. The salami sandwich provided was actually very good."
Cons: "The slimline seats were not very comfortable. I would hesitate to fly Lufthansa's narrow bodies for flights greater than 2 hours."
Cons: "Absolutely perfect."
Pros: "The staff were all super helpful and friendly! Pleasure to fly with!"
Cons: "4/4 flights with involuntary stop-overs were delayed, causing 4 panics and 2 missed flights. Given their proclivity for busing passengers to distant planes in Herman efforts, a 50-minute allowance for changing planes, when added to the frequent Kate departures, is just not sufficient. They should acknowledge it and sell only flights that allow for 80-90 minutes in the airports that are so woefully managed (eg, Frankfurt and Munich). It’s back to BA for me!"
Pros: "the on time scheduled departure"
Cons: "the long complicated walk to terminal"
Pros: "All the staff were friendly and the complimentary food and drink snacks was lovely."
Cons: "Our flights were delayed both on the way there and back"
Pros: "Friendly and efficient staff."

Cons: "DID NOT LIKE MY LUGGAGE GOING MISSING. IT'S STILL MISSING AND, AFTER RECEIVING PROMISES OF DELIVERY TODAY, THERE IS NOW NO RECORD OF MY LUGGAGE!"
Pros: "The seats and space was ok. Exit from the plane was directly opposite the passport machines and the exit."
Cons: "The flight was very late leaving meaning I arrived in London over an hour late! With knock on problems!"
Pros: "Usual good service for economy class on this airline"
Cons: "It would really be nice as a paying HON/SEN and business ticket passenger to get priority boarding. As nowadays seemingly everybody has priority boarding, this offer does not make sense anymore."
Cons: "Refusal to board as our flight was a few minutes landing"
Cons: "None of the flights arrived on schedule. That caused other problems. Overall the trip was terrible. Not sure if I will fly lufthansa again nor recommen."
Cons: "Fight was cancelled, but we weren't notified until it was time to board (30-45 minutes before takeoff). We went to the help desk and were placed on a flight few hours later, but were never told the reason for the cancellation."
Pros: "Darned site more comfortable than the first leg of the journey."
Cons: "Tell your passengers they need hiking boots to get from main concourse to B terminal!"

Cons: "No entertainment and half sandwich with some cookies was the only food we got."
Pros: "They held the gate for us as we got there about 14 minutes before departure."
Pros: "Clean, friendly environment, friendly staff, even though a bit bossy, but that's the German way (which I am too)."
Cons: "Little space. and NO WIFI. This is really no longer adequate in 2017. In the US, practically all domestic flights have wifi now."
Pros: "787 seat spacing (a UA plane, not LH)"
Cons: "Took first available train , arr. Freising at 9:50. Arrived at Terminal 2 by bus ca. 10:25. I am handicapped and a slow walker, so I got to departure floor ca. `10:40. Waited in line at self-serve check-in; found out that it does not have ability to process numbers (for US address). Attendant was not helpful and nasty. She told me me to go to the regular check-in line, where I waited another 45 minutes. None of the 3 "help" personnel standing around when approached managed to tell me that there was a special counter for handicapped persons. The one at the express self-check-in refused to give me her lasst name or any form of ID (first name Sophia). After waiting an additional 15 minutes for a wheelchair, I was deposited in a waiting area, where a second wheelchair arrived after another long wait. Told me I might not make the plan (I did). Overall a very unpleasant and nasty experience. With the exception of the very nice lady (Mrs. Ilser?? ) who checked in my luggage, none of the other 3 persons at the express and regular check-in spoke decent German or English, and none was helpful (Go there, wait!!!) Barely made the plane in MUC, Heathrow turned out much better than the touted German efficiency. Please forward to Lufthansa customer relations. Dr. W. Hartwig"
Pros: "I have a servere hearing problem and was concerned (since we were late leaving Zurich for my changeover in Frankfurt), that I would be late because I can't hear any loudspeaker systems (either on planes or in airports). I felt that I could get easily lost between flights and not have time to get to the Frankfurt/Denver flight. I told this to the person at the gate in Zurich, and he immediately arranged for someone to meet me in Frankfurt and take me there. I was met by Maika in Frankfurt and she was just excellent--personable and efficient and really helpful. I'm sorry I couldn't remember the name of the person at the gate in Zurich. He was also great. I wouldn't have done this if I had had more time, but this really made my day (and my flight!) ! Thank you!"
Cons: "Boarding in Zurich is tough for infrequent travelers because all the desks say SWISS. And it took me a long time to realize that SWISS handled many airlines. Perhaps the signs could be bigger."
Pros: "Check in process was simple and efficient. The crew on the plane were polite and friendly. Flight arrived early."
Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic. The sandwiches offered were extremely dry."
Pros: "We got there"
Cons: "Had to get a replacement plane when the first one had issues."
Cons: "lastminute.com was completely unhelpful in assisting with any changes to my itinerary. They repeatedly provided me with incorrect information that sent me on a wild goose chase."
Cons: "Boarding tool a long time and late take off"
Pros: "Stewards dis perfect job"
Pros: "Everything about the United Airlines portion of the trip was terrific: lots of food & drinks; good entertainment system; good seats even in economy. United really stepped up their game."
Cons: "The seats on the Austria Airlines portion of the trip were very close together & very minimally structured (little padding, depth etc.)"
Pros: "In flight crew worked hard"
Cons: "No lines for boarding - it was a mess And randomly we were asked to check in our bags though Austrian crew had earlier tagged them for carry on"
Pros: "The hotel was nice although I was unable to sleep due to the delays all around concerning my connecting flight. I am thoroughly upset because I contacted the airlines 3 times in May to express my concern with the 30mins layover. And to no avail. My worst concerns are being played out now. It appears that their isn’t any concern from the airlines about this catastrophe impacting so many people. Shame on you."
Cons: "The connecting flight departed before the first flight landed. Then I was given the wrong information of gate departure by airport personnel. After running like crazy to find this gate for departure, the plane had already departed before we even landed. There wasn’t anyone around to help, and finally I found an airport worker who gave me the same incorrect information. She was as perplexed as was I. Finally, she directed me to the information booth where I was booked in a flight the next day. The food voucher was insufficient to cover dinner, i had to pay out of my pocket but I was frugal given the financial situation. The taxi service personnel were rude and it took a long time to taxi me to the hotel where I am unable to sleep because I have an early morning g departure. All in all, between the airport delays getting me to the hotel, lack of proper food and treatment by personnel, I am exhausted and lost sleep in the process."
Pros: "Great to be able to check in bags at the CAT railway station in the morning. Cabin crew were excellent- very friendly and helpful and did two drinks services. Austrian’s cabin crew sets them apart on European routes."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing. Despite booking business class flights 3 months before departure date because we had to attend a very important wedding. Swiss Airlines overbooked the flight but didn’t warn us in advance. This meant my husband was forced to pay over 8 thousand Euros to charter a small private je"
Cons: "So That we could attend the wedding early the next morning in Oldenburg. They then had the audacity to void our return flights. Luckily I spoke with a lovely lady at Lufthansa, explained the situation and she re-instated return flights for an admin fee. Will never ever use Swiss Airlines again."
Pros: "I get Airpoints with the flight, crew were lovely."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked, so a few delays (as they were asking if anyone would layover to release a seat) and they were being very strict on the one bag per traveller, but that’s fair enough considering it was busy."
Cons: "more than one hour delay, crew didn't arrange anything for passengers who had to catch a connecting flight in a short time. And according to other passengers, Austrian's flights are always late for at least 30-45 minutes since recent years."
Pros: "Plane, pilots and the leader of the crew"
Cons: "The flight attendant in the back needs to be more educated"
Cons: "Can’t like it if you missed it!!"
Pros: "Fast disembark. Used both ends."
Cons: "No entertainment. Luckily, it was late or I would have missed it because my previous plane was so late."
Pros: "continium of previous service provided"
Pros: "We had a very tight connection but there was no problem. With only 30 minutes between arrival and departure our checked bags still made the flight."
Cons: "Poor announcements"
Cons: "Delayed longer than the flight time"
Pros: "Very friendly staff"
Cons: "we had some delay, and they did not inform us at all how long this will take. so this is something ot work on."
Pros: "Very friendly staff"
Cons: "All was well"
Pros: "Flight attendants were extremely friendly and considerate of passenger needs. In flight Wi-Fi is free in economy. Good leg space between the rows. Overall it's rare to find such good service now a days."
Cons: "While going to the gate G11 at Vienna airprt, i slipped infront of the gate in presence of 3 male austrian airways staff who were checking there. After i got up i requested if i could get some water and they said they cannot. Finally a co passenger gave me her bottle of water. I ended up actually breaking my leg"
Pros: "It was fine"
Cons: "Food part was missing."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Lateness and virtually no food at lunchtime"
Pros: "Seating like every other airline in economy. There was NO baggage charge for economy and the drink trolley offered wine and beer, at no cost, on our 1.5 hour flight."
Pros: "The flight was nowhere near full, which was terrific. The crew were excellent, polite and attentive. Everything was on time."
Cons: "I don't remember anything about the food."
Pros: "Very well organozed"
Cons: "Complete lack of information and abrupt staff when flight was delayed"
Pros: "Plane left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Rude gate agent. Small seats, no leg room, very crowded together. Clearly a budget airline - should be marketed as such."
Cons: "When I was boarding all representatives was very unfriendly and I would say they were rude."
Pros: "Great staff, friendly and helpful."
Pros: "On time, smooth takeoff and landing, friendly staff and crew"
Cons: "Everything was fine, even the legroom"
Cons: "Not enough snacks and no entertainment. Only an hour flight..."
Cons: "As I was flying from London Heathrow back to Vienna, I had a carry-on that was allowed on my flight with Austrian from Vienna to London. My carry-on weighed 8 kg, like is required by the rules. While boarding my flight, the woman at the counter told me my bag had to be checked because there were too many carry-ons on the flight. I asked her that I keep my bag because I had medication in there, and she didn't listen to me at all. She just kept repeating that i have to check my bag, and then took my bag from me and gave it to the baggage crew there. I didn't want to make a huge scene because the flight is only 2 hours and I hoped i Could deal without my medication during that time, but I found it incredibly, incredibly rude and awful to not listen to a passenger."
Cons: "Delay of 1 hour on a flight of 1 hour during lunch time and neither a snack during the flight."
Pros: "Pleasant flight crews on all flights."
Cons: "Cramped seating in coach."
Pros: "Short flight and the crew was attentive and pleasant."
Cons: "Loading of the bus to the terminal was slow only 1 bus was available."
Pros: "Service was spectacular. The United crew was awesome."
Pros: "Everything seemed all right"
Pros: "We left late but efficiently."
Pros: "The meal and drink service was quite good. The stewards/stewardesses were very attentive and kind."
Cons: "There is not enough leg room. There is even less room if the person in front of one's seat has the seat reclined. The seats barely recline at all, so sleep is impossible. Sleep would be possible if there were enough room to rest one's head on the tray in front of the seat. This is impossible if the person in front of one's seat has reclined his or her seat. Thus, sleep is totally impossible on this aircraft. The sinks in the bathrooms also need to be deeper and need to drain more quickly."
Cons: "Seats in economy class were crammed with next to no leg room"
Pros: "The only positive aspect about this experience was the crew on board the plane. They were pleasant and efficient."
Cons: "The true cost of this ticket was extremely poorly communicated. The baggage policy was not clear when I purchased my ticket, and I was charged an additional 30 Euros upon boarding to check a bag that met the carry-on size requirements (I had looked this up ahead of time), but because it was in addition to my purse (which fit under the seat), I was forced to pay to check it. Had I been aware that this ticket only permitted a purse-sized carry-on when purchasing the ticket, I would have selected a different ticket/carrier entirely. What was even more confusing was that I had flown on a similar ticket from London to Vienna, and didn't have any issue bringing a carry-on and a purse, so of course I was surprised when they told me I had to pay an additional 30Euro for the same two bags! When I tried to explain this to the agent, she argued with me and was very unhelpful. Overall, a very negative experience on Austrian Air. I will not be returning."
Pros: "Exiting the aircraft."
Cons: "United did not honour the seat assignment that Airfare.com gave me so I sat in a middle seat. But the entire seating plan on United is so bad it should be a violation of the anti torture convention."
Pros: "It was cheap and easy to book"
Cons: "Not being able to check in online, was not able to reserve seat. Even at luggage check in the flight attendants did not allow me to reserve a seat."
Pros: "Friendly crews, good coffee"
Cons: "Food is bad, and the reading light doesn't work. Limited selection of movies and tv shows"
Pros: "The fact that there was no one sitting by me was fab. Through man on priority check in desk was very helpful getting me the assistance I needed"
Cons: "More choice of meal. Getting special.assistance.upon arrival at.Istanbul airport first outbound flight was hard. I nearly fainted as I had to stand for so long."
Pros: "From JFK to London, staff was friendly."
Cons: "From JFK to London, a large number of passengers were not wearing masks properly and the crew did not take action other than a reminder early on. From London to Edinburough, the crew was somewhat rude."
Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "Check in (i could not do it online) and the 82 chf cost to check a suitcase"
Cons: "Bathroom faucet awful. Seats in premium economy not comfortable."
Pros: "Female Flight attendant was very rude"
Pros: "ON time Flight"
Pros: "Entertainment system was decent."

Pros: "It was incredibly quick!"
Cons: "T5 needs many more drinking fountains."
Cons: "price and reliability"
Pros: "I travel 70 times a year and I try to avoid BA the f I can. This flight 2 hrs late and they ran out of food as hey got to me I’m tge back. The toilets ran out of water 3/4 of the way through the flight so people couldn’t use the toilets. Not good. Zz"
Pros: "Helpful and Friendly Crew. Did their best to help during the delay. Able to take hand baggage on board (unlike our kid journey when forced to check it in at the gate)"
Cons: "Sat on plane for an hour waiting to depart, so delayed landing. The BA feel is no different to budget airlines now."
Pros: "The aircraft seemed new or renovated and it was fairly clean."
Cons: "The crew was talking with a passenger at the end of the corridor while laughing very loud. This caused many passengers to wake up from their sleep or just disturb them from their reading. Instead of telling the passenger to keep it down they were all cracking jokes to each other while the whole cabin could hear them."
Pros: "Good service and crew."
Cons: "Seats were very very narrow."
Cons: "I paid 20 pounds for seat 9 something and was given seat 32F"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable, and the crew was friendly"
Pros: "I liked crew's friendly attitudes."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Lack of punctuality (90 minutes late, due to “late arrival of inbound aircraft” as per usua). Ever decreasing seat pitch so absolutely abysmal lack of comfort. Dismal snacks and drinks for purchase. Bus service at LHR rather than jetty."
Cons: "I experienced several delays on my journey to Zurich and so my itinerary was changed. When I started my journey to Madison, there were apparently then multiple bookings, which caused confusion, and had to be sorted out. Luckily I had left plenty of time to get through security and customs."
Pros: "Pilot skilled, first landing attempt was too shaky so we pulled up and did it again"
Cons: "Long wait to take off, all food and beverage on the flight were for sale only which feels petty"
Pros: "Empty seats next to us."
Cons: "1 hour delay (not BA's fault) confusion as to gate location"
Cons: "I did not like the food"
Pros: "Everything else"
Cons: "A 30 minute delay in taking off caused by de-icing."
Cons: "BA has gone cheap. They charge you for a cup of tea also."
Pros: "The flight was cancelled"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Quality of service, the fact that they charge you for a bottle of water!"
Pros: "Flight was onetime, food on the flight was for purchase but it was vert nice, boarding was onetime and smooth."
Pros: "Crew and pilot were very friendly"
Cons: "No free food, no entertainment"
Cons: "They could not see our flight from London to dallas so they would not let us get on the plane in Zurich."
Pros: "Clean, informative pilot"
Cons: "2 hours delay!"
Cons: "Was given hard time about guitar carry-on - British Airways kept wanting us to check it, even though we had zero problems bringing it to Zurich on American Airlines."
Cons: "Bad boarding, problem with booking (BA fault), overall worse than budge airline"
Pros: "We sat in the plane for 2 hours and were told they were dealing with a passenger issue."
Pros: "Nothing - absolutely nothing."
Cons: "A 30-year old 767. Broken headrests on seats. Late departure with no rationale offered. Usual (by now) pathetic fare ordered as food and beverages at a cost. Surly aervice. All at a premium price."
Pros: "I still think highly of BA but please don't follow American domestic carriers down the rabbit hole of terrible service with regards to food and comfort."
Cons: "Short haul flights food not served and need to be purchased"
Cons: "A fellow traveler needed to check a bag and BA charged more for the bag than we paid for the flight. They said that because the flight was not full it cost more??? Ridiculous! If flight not full she should have paid less.... Very unhappy with this policy."
Pros: "Short flight so service was standard, was conked out for most of it so I guess it was comfortable :D"
Pros: "The trip was adequate in all aspects for a short haul flight"
Cons: "It was very difficult to get our seat assignments.. We had to wait till the last day."
Pros: "Ran on time"
Cons: "Boarding via the tarmac; check-in staff did not assign a seat for ongoing flight legs, desp"
Cons: "The seats were tight & crews are not at all welcoming! Connection time was insufficient for the strict security screenings, custom clearance & distance between gates (London Would never connect at London Heathrow ever again!"
Pros: "I thoroughly enjoyed my flights. Boarding was efficient and well-conducted. Seats were quite comfortable, I felt. The entertainment systems included plenty of content; movies allowed for different tastes, and there were other options. The crew were thoughtful and responsive to specific requests or needs. Blankets and pillows, earphones and announcements were useful. It was possible to sleep, but also, to stay awake if necessary. The flight arrived in good time, and was de-boarded efficiently as well. The menu was sufficient, although the tarragon chicken was underwhelming: the pasta dish was quite nice. The coffee was not great, but drinkable. I appreciated having actual milk for the coffee."
Cons: "The gates at Heathrow are not announced until one hour before, which can mean a long trek to arrive in time for boarding. Also, at IAD, there's a lot of queuing and navigating passage systems both to get to the plane and to arrive back. I liked the new kiosks for the entry to immigration/passport however."
Pros: "Flight was on time, staff were friendly and helpful (eg brought me coffee and pastry when I slept through the device)."
Cons: "Late flight missed my connection and totally horrible experience"
Cons: "Little close on the connection"
Cons: "When you book BA and end up with Iberia, that’s definitely not what you want..."

Cons: "This flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Arriving ahead of time"
Cons: "Too hot in the plane"
Pros: "The aircraft comfort"
Cons: "Do the checking before not 15 min before the departure"
Cons: "Delayed by an hour due to inbound delay, causing a knock-on delay with plane maintenance. While fairly comfortably seated and offered water, this still was somewhat unpleasant especially after a long-haul from Havana"
Pros: "Not a lot."
Cons: "Arriving at the gate whilst the flight was still boarding, with a boarding pass in my hand, and being told that my seat had been given to someone else because the Airline unilaterally decided that my connecting flight from Bogotá would not arrive in time. Followed by two hours of Iberia staff being surly, not looking me in they eye and doing absolutely nothing about getting me home. I have now been travelling for nearly 30 hours without sleep, am stuck in Madrid with no certainty of when or how I will get home or see my luggage again, and am seriously seriously pissed off. I do accept that things can sometimes go wrong and that it is nobody’s fault. This is definitely somebody’s fault."
Pros: "Every thing was ok"
Pros: "The food was nice."
Cons: "There was no water in business class toilets. The staff are not polite."
Cons: "I was not able to check in online"
Pros: "The screens on a dozen seats just failed a few hours in - engineering issue. And breakfast was a cold pretzel. Food gets let’s generous on BA all the time. The crew were lovely."
Cons: "A 2330 Flight ran significantly late with a passenger delay and then de-icing. The repeated assurances of “a 10 minute or so delay” were obviously not correct. Takeoff close to 0100 was followed by drinks AND then food - my vote would be neither. Please oh please just let us sleep."
Pros: "Madrid's airport is comfortable and modern."
Cons: "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."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Seating and not so friendly"
Pros: "Heathrow Airport has a lot of stores to keep you occupied"
Cons: "Late notice of where our gate was located. By the time we got the news, we went to our gate and the people were already boarding"
Pros: "I like the staff and the generous host of them"
Cons: "The price was not matching the benefits of the ticket because it was without check in bag (luggage) and every single thing you have to pay The type of aircraft there are using its too small business class is very poor nothing to compare with other company."
Pros: "Crew was nice and I had a great flight with Iberia on my flight from Chicago to Madrid"
Cons: "I am 6 feet 180 pounds and I had absolutely no legroom was completely stuck in my seat can’t believe that a tourist class seat is this small with no legroom"
Pros: "That I arrived"
Cons: "Iberia flight was delayed by 45 minutes causing me to miss my connection from London to Dublin."
Pros: "Airbus 320"
Cons: "Boarding process and pitiful legroom space . Iberia clearly loves showing the privileged few who have paid top dollars to be at the front , that we must be made to wait and struggle to get to our seats .Then, we have to squeeze into a tiny , pitiful space of a seat .....Even Ryanair does better !"
Pros: "seat is comfort"
Pros: "Flight was safe, aircraft was clean and luckily with enough room under the seat to store carry on bag"
Cons: "The fact that all the passengers boarding in "group 3" were forced to check in their carry-on bags if they did not fit under the seat; and retrieve those at the baggage claim area (not right after exiting the airplane) In my case I was able to store my carryon under the seat in front of me after pleading to the crew and gate members to let me try because of my connecting flights. There is no complimentary food service, even water is charged."
Cons: "I stopped at the Iberia check-in at Barajas in Madrid. They sent me to BA check-in, where I waited 45 minutes to find out that I should be at Iberia check-in. Then, Iberia check-in had to send me to last minute clerk or I would have missed my flight. Last minute check-in ended up being the same place and same clerk I began with."
Cons: "A porter checked our bags at the gate without asking us whether we were traveling beyond London, so the bags were never transferred to the transatlantic flight nor did they arrive in SF. It wasn't necessary to check them because there was plenty of room in the overhead bins when we got on the flight. We immediately asked a flight attendant to help when I realized they might not go through and he said he spoke to someone who caught and tagged the bags to go through, but it still didn't happen. It would have been easier if he had just brought them to us on the plane. Another women's bag was taken with all her baby supplies and bottles in it for a 16-hour travel day. Very frustrating for all of us."
Cons: "Mistake Kayak or its subcontractor made in listing the name of my wife incorrectly. This created a real hassle in getting a boarding pass in her name"
Pros: "short flight, on time"
Cons: "indifferent crew"
Pros: "The flight was short"
Cons: "They didn't even give out water on the flight. Not to happy with the service"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that we could not check-in online nor at the airport kiosk. There were no attendants to help and explain the issues ppl were facing."
Cons: "There was no complimentary water or beverages"
Cons: "Very pleased with overall service and hospitality"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Check in was terrible, did no allow online and on the desk a lot of misinformation which sent me to different desks for check in. Personnel Needs training!!l"
Cons: "Upon boarding the aircraft was really hot, I was sweating in my seat... I did not receive any complementary drinks or snacks."
Pros: "Movies, no delays"
Cons: "Luggage was not documented correctly to my final destination by Iberia"
Cons: "Very limited room to move. Rather impersonal"
Pros: "Comfortable flights & on time"
Cons: "Service, flight crew seemed to busy chatting instead of serving."
Cons: "No free snacks or drinks"
Pros: "Easy check in and comfortable seats"
Cons: "Too little time to connect with another flight at Heathrow. Missed my connecting flight. Why is there an additional security checkpoint at Heathrow when you've already been thru security at another airport? Poor design for international arrivals."
Pros: "The ease at putting my luggage in.."
Cons: "The prices of the food and drinks!! Ripped off!!"
Pros: "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."
Cons: "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."
Pros: "We were overall very pleased with everything about, thank you!"
Pros: "The crew was fabulous! And the ride was on time and had plenty of entertainment."
Cons: "My only complaint is that the seats were very tight in the economy class. We were packed like cattle. I know these were the "cheap" seats but for almost $1500 I would hope for a bit more comfort."
Cons: "Kept us waiting for five hours"
Cons: "Late departure."
Pros: "Guests were boarded quickly. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Food was tasteless and bland. Crew was not very attentive."
Cons: "The seat did not recline, a bit ridiculous for a plane that size"
Cons: "The fight from Chicago to London was a nightmare."
Pros: "Loved the gluten free meal option."
Pros: "Spaciousness of aircraft, comfort of aircraft (vibration, noise)"
Cons: "not enough leg room. and i have to point out that I am a petite 110 lbs, 5'2" woman. although the flight is short, a complimentary snack and drink would have been nice. instead, you had to pay for anything you wanted. prices on top of that, were exaggerated. very disappointing."
Pros: "The flight from Raleigh to Heathrow London was LONG, so I especially enjoyed the wine being included without extra cost! Wine helped me to relax, read, & survive the long sleepless night!"
