Sampler food this good is very heavy for a flight
Coach seats are just too cramped for an 14 hour and 45 minute flight. Not the airlines fault, that is just the way it is today. Great incentive to upgrade to Business Class, but that would have been an extra $970, not in the budget for my company. I will say this, the meals and flight attendants are world class, even in Coach. I had a blind woman sitting in front of me and the genuine care that the flight attendant proactively provided was heartwarming and inspirational. I was moved by the personal touch and genuinely sincere interest by the fight attendant in this woman's experience and safety. Every aspect of the journey, this particular flight attendant made the airline proud.
I had a pleasant experience.

Pros: "The crew was excellent in their mannerisms, efficiency, service and never ending smiles."
Cons: "The flight was not overly crowded and many of the passengers were seated with three people per set of seats while others were seated individually and able to spread out with much more comfort. I felt that when the flight crew saw this they could have made everyone much more comfortable by switching people to two people per row thus giving them more room especially on such a long flight."
Pros: "Flight was not crowded, room to stretch out. Food and service was good."
Cons: "Difficult boarding procedure."
Cons: "Seat cushion was hard for long flight time!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, the entertainment system needs more content, the food could use more variety. I would definitely travel with them again."
Pros: "Again, the flight attendants were so sweet and nice and hospitable."

Cons: "My parents came from India to U.S. They had wheelchair, but they didn't get it and they have knee problem they don't know English too. So I had very bad experience with Qatar."
Pros: "Kept my Insulated tea mug filled with hot water."
Cons: "Plane left 1 hr late. Crew tried to make me check my carry on because it was a "full" flight and even though my medication was in it and I did not have a lock. Baggage handling bent my pull up handle - it no longer works - suit ace was brand new."
Pros: "Pleasant and professional crew on a new and well kept plane. The food and entertainment options were both varied and enjoyable. Big plus was the care package on a transoceanic flight. It only cost them pennies but it was nice to have a mini toothbrush and toothpaste on a 14 hour trip."
Pros: "When my main, very large over-weight suitcase was not able to be accepted, the Qatar Airways check-in representative was very clear and helpful, in explaining what to do (purchase inexpensive box + tape, re-pack some items from the suitcase-->create two pieces of baggage at correct weight)."

Pros: "In flight entertainment is awesome but we left an hour late! Love BA though, wish American Airlines would take a note."
Pros: "Seats with little fold-down head rests on each side, allowing you to sleep/nap/doze in any seat. Really good touch screens for the entertainment system, with no need to have to dig my knuckles into the screen to get it to respond. Good movie selection too. Movies are also available before take off and even after landing. Acceptable white wine (Chenin Blanc). Food was also entirely acceptable."

Pros: "The entertainment, food and crew were good"

Pros: "great team. good snacks. great room."
Pros: "The entertainment (TV in each seat) was great. The food was outstanding (chicken with risotto and beet salad), and so was the service. This was the best British Airways flight I've ever been on!"
Pros: "We landed on time."
Cons: "This was the first time I every flew on BA. I had higher expectations than the reality of the trip. I was told by a traveler that alcoholic drinks were gratis. However, other than the one time the cart passed through no offer was made. I guess you had to buzz for a drink. I expected water to be handed out in the cabin more frequently than it was. Food was inedible. Again, I thought BA had a better reputation. Leg room was tight. Other airlines offer more."
Pros: "Flight was on time departing and early landing. There were plenty of movies to choose from and the food was good for airline food."
Cons: "Airlines in general need to do a better job of controlling the boarding process (using the groups to board) and controlling the amount of luggage people bring on. Peoples definition of a "personal item" are skewed."

Cons: "Non-stop from Madrid to Philadelphia was canceled apparently because of a computer problem and then I was rerouted through Amsterdam with an extremely short connectios which in turn meant that baggage did not make it and was opened and damaged !!!

Cons: "Could not check in online"
Pros: "Service was very good."

Pros: "That plane left on time and had food."
Cons: "The touchscreen did not work to entertainment. I paid extra for a cramped seat with no entertainment..."

Pros: "Excellent service with good major airline."
Pros: "flight was on time and very smooth, staff courteous, frequent offerings of food and beverage."
Cons: "Several couples including my husband and I were split up for 9 hour flight, this is not desired when trying to relax, sleep and enjoy vacation. Also food offerings were all foods I could not eat, so I arrived in Philadelphia not feeling well. I have lactose intolerance as do many people and every meal or snack included dairy products. I was able to eat basic carbohydrates but no protein sources other than the almonds I always travel with. When paying $1000 for a flight I should be able to sit with my husband and eat some food. Also the TV screens are very difficult to use, not responsive to touch."
Pros: "Crew was very accommodating with every request and the flight didn't take as long as scheduled!"
Pros: "Food, on time, organized, friendly staff, entertainment options"
Cons: "seats were small and too close together"
Pros: "British offers a variety of comforts such as abundant drink and food as well as entertainment to keep the long travels interesting."
Cons: "On my way to Europe BA lost my custom made titanium crutches that cost over $750. They were moved without my consent to the holding of the plane, with checked baggage. The crutches were not tagged when moved without my permission and are now lost with very little chance of finding them. In the three weeks since they have only replied to one of my emails to say they will not provide compensation even to replace the crutches. It disheartens me they have a lack of care and urgency for equipment that is so vital for daily mobility in people's lives."
Cons: "At the airport, I went to the British staff to request info about the flight but the person was not well informed and redirect me to a wrong flight operator instead of American Airlines."
Pros: "Responsive crew lots of food"
Cons: "Too much mayo in good Economy seats are close"
Pros: "Overall a good trip!"
Cons: "Almost broke my finger trying to change the menu on the screen. The snack coming back toward Philadelphia, is really not very good. One should have a choice of yogurt or breakfast bar. The flatbread with weird combination of cheese, peppers etc after flying for 8 hours is just not good for any stomach."
Cons: "No food, no tv, flight attendants could be nicer"
Cons: "Took over an hour to check in bags, very little communication from check in staff at Manchester Airport, short staffed??"
Pros: "Great selection"
Cons: "Poor audio/visual quality"
Pros: "Ice cream makes American Airline unique. I love it!"
Cons: "Late departure without good explanation and announcement. Movie choices are not very,interesting."
Pros: "Appreciated the vegetarian meals that I requested."
Cons: "From Madrid to Philadelphia the seat belt sign was on. I cannot believe that there was bad weather all the way across the Atlantic! People, including me, finally decided that the light was never going to be turned off and disregarded it, which I would think is much more dangerous! Poor support on making sure that passengers had to pick up their bags in Philadelphia and go through customs. There should have been someone as passengers reached the end of the concourse from the plan to remind them to get their baggage. I knew but there were at least five around me in line for customs that did not know and I informed them. Wine was awful."
