Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Too hot in the plane - was far too hot. too late the drink...after I eaten."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Made traveling with infant little less harder."
Cons: "The crew from Doha to Kolkata segment could have been little more helpful, especially when they see someone travelling with small kids"
Pros: "Friendly Crew, good entertainment possibilites."

Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "amazing except for the entertainment system"
Cons: "Better entertainment system , 6 hours flight is tough without it"
Pros: "Service and entertainment."
Pros: "The food was OK, but not really as good as what we had received on other airlines. Example, on one flight I had a fish dish which was overcooked very dry and there was no sauce of any kind to make it palatable. I do not like to throw food away but half way into the meal I had enough. Other than that Qatar Airlines was really first class. The flight attendants were the best we have ever experienced. Their dress was immaculate, they were very friendly and attentive and were there to make the flight as comfortable as possible plus cater to all requests."
Cons: "The food which was generally very bland and without any taste. Sauces with some of the dishes would be helpful."
Pros: "Good service/Crew food quality and choice good."
Cons: "Need more choice of British TV Programmes rather than American"
Pros: "The food was good. Supposed to be Halaal (Kosher) for the Muslim population who have dietary restrictions. The economy cabin was comfortable enough. The cabin crew was friendly and helpful. We had a very short connecting time (1 hour) at Doha. They put a ground staff to receive all the ten passengers who needed to make that connection."
Cons: "The check-in person could have easily been a little less difficult with the slight over weight of the carry-on luggage."
Pros: "Staff was reasonable"
Cons: "Little to no leg room on a 15 hour flight while travel with kids was an extremely difficult/painful experience. International airlines have to stop squashing people in the economy class. That is insane."
Pros: "The staff are great, the food is good."
Cons: "The seats are awful, especially on the 7 hour flight from Doha to Barcelona. Very narrow, marginal recline. Also the flight was very hot, my watch thermometer said 33° at one point"

Pros: "The food"
Pros: "Flight duration was short"
Cons: "Nothing in particular"
Pros: "Excellent customer service, from the check in process, to boarding, to flying 21 hours from Boston to Phuket with infant- we couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Everyone was so accommodating and helpful as we traveled with our 7 month old a lot g distance."
Pros: "The service on board is excellent"
Pros: "Philadelphia-Doha was excellent and noticeably better than Doha-Bangkok. ood, service, condition of aircraft were all better in the PHL-Doha leg. I have done the trip a few times now so it is not a fluke. Odd that the Doha food (and I usually get the local dishes) is very so-so. I usually only take a bite or two. Not appetizing. The Doha-BKK staff was less professional as well. The trays of the main meal were left with the passengers so long, we passengers started to bring our own trays to the galley. The plane out of Doha was very tight so passengers in economy have that sardine experience. The cup holders did not work although they would have been useful."
Pros: "Everyone at Qatar Airlines is amazing. The service and inflight accommodations are great, and they are always looking for how to make your travel more comfortable. I highly recommend!"
Cons: "It would be nice to have socks to put on for when I want to take my shoes off."
Cons: "Everything was disappointing"

Pros: "Polite staff keen to help"
Cons: "Since I was sitting in the row starting a new section in the plane (row 26?), crew members walked in front of me throughout the whole flight. Sometimes if my legs were extended, they were stepping over me, so it just got annoying."
Pros: "Food was good. Service was great. Bathrooms were clean. Refreshing experience."
Pros: "Had a good experience , comfortable check in , boarding , seating and polite crew . Good part was the flight was on time and on couple of occasions before time arrival . Great entertainment options in the flight ."

Cons: "Boarding was crazy."
Cons: "They arbitrarily switched the flight one hour ahead of schedule, with no notice so half the passengers ended up missing it."

Pros: "I liked that it was empty and I could lie down."
Pros: "The guidence between flights I was the only person off my flight to transfer and they sill had a gal waiting to take me to the next gate"
Pros: "Considering how long it was, not much could have been better. It wasn't too crowded, so the seat next to me was free, which made getting some sleep easier."
Pros: "Boarding experience was very good. Crew were attentive for the most part."
Cons: "I get the whole more leg room argument, but sitting on a piece of plastic with almost no padding for 14 hours is nothing but torture! Food was average at best."
Pros: "Friendly crew Good choice of food and beverage"
Cons: "Aircraft changed without notice Trapped in cramped window seat No storage bins IFE strobing windows tabs and would not switch off Useless design of chair lead to loss and destruction of my Kindle"
Cons: "Seriously, the service of Qatar Airways was horrendous in Uganda. Ridiculous. Could NOT give a worse review. Would 100% NOY recommend this airline. EVER."
Pros: "Movie selection was good."
Cons: "Everything else. Boarding was chaos, Ground crew should show authority while boarding passengers."
Cons: "I had chicken three time on the flight. To spicy for my tastes. Even scrambled eggs had a hot sauce on them."
Pros: "The spirit despite the COVID19 scare. Serving on an India bound flight from the Gulf is never easy"
Cons: "We need to promote paper free boarding passes for whoever can afford. Atleast an endeavor."
Pros: "So so"
Cons: "Food is junk."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "It was okay"
Pros: "Plane was large and comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic and confusing."

Cons: "there were no toothbrush kits given out in economy class"
Pros: "Entertainment was exhaustive and entertaining"

Pros: "Alexandra is just not a pretty face."
Cons: "I should have got a premium economy, my section was too cramped."
Pros: "Wish there were more leg room"
Pros: "We love this airline!"
Cons: "Flight lest 2 hours late. Didn’t have my choice of meal. Cabin crew very inattentive. Worst flight ever with Emirates in business class"
Pros: "The food was good, good intertainment options"
Cons: "On the Boeing 777 series which I flew on, the seats are UNUSUALLY CRAMPED TOGETHER. I have flown for decades internationally: this was absolutely the most uncomfortable flight I have ever been on."
Pros: "The plane left on time, the ride was smooth and journey felt safe throughout its entirety. I enjoyed the flexibility of the seats; the quality of the cutlery, duvet, headphones and the matteress provided. The ICE is a brilliant entertainment system; giving an array of films to watch and games to play. The cabin crew were polite, friendly and helpful, and gave an excellent service as one would expect from travelling business."
Cons: "The interior of the 777-300 was outdated, especially knowing that 777's have gone through an interior overhaul, so I was unfortunate to not be on of those refurbished planes. The food and the Virgin Mojito was not the best as I did expect it to better considering this was a business class. And the ICE tablet and its remote is not the most userfriendly nor responsive to use, as it does get a bit fiddly."
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Not sure you can change anything but it seems as if we had an inordinate amount of crying kids. On a 14 hour flifht, that was hard"
Pros: "Entertainment via onboard tv is really good and keep you busy during even the longest flight"
Cons: "Crew was not as hospitalitable as they have been. Seems a lot of their crew was flying back and caused them to not be as prompt with regular passengers. They ran out of certain selections quickly."
Pros: "I liked helpfulness of staff that took care of my 11months old son"
Pros: "Good everything"
Pros: "This was operated by Qantas. Nice movie/music setup. Crew friendly"
Cons: "Food plentiful but meat was tough and pretty instututional in taste. Couldn’t eat but half of any meal"
Pros: "A footrest would make the flight perfect."
Cons: "No footrest. Legs got tired. Felt like lifting them up."
Cons: "Despite me telling the crew a number of times that he temperature was FAR too low, no change was made. Now I am not a first time flyer and I know flights can get cold. I had a sweatshirt, socks, shoes, two blankets wrapped and it was still cold to the point that I put the blanket over my head. When I looked around the flight almost every single person was completely wrapped in blankets and had hoods, sarees, and scarves wrapped around their heads. I had my 1 year old infant who already had a head cold that I feel was worsened by the cold dry air. I spent my first few days in Kolkata pretty sick. I know the cold air doesn’t cause the illness but it certainly worsened any stuffy nose I had into a full blown cold and chest congestion. I was VERY upset by the discomfort on this flight especially after having a wonderful flight with Emirates from New York to Dubai. I really felt like the crew did not care despite clear discomfort the passengers were feeling. It was incredible how visible the discomfort was yet nothing was done to fix the temperature. The freezing cold air kept blowing right on everyone theoughout the flight."
Cons: "one of the Lady crew member was very rude. When i asked her child meal she made a very bad face and told me that u should have booked online. I explained her i tried but couldnt book coz of may be cheap fare category. It was quite embarrassing for me :("
Pros: "The cabin crew was attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The flight seemed crowded and did not have enough room for carry on baggage."
Cons: "It took over 45 minutes for my bag to come onto the collection conveyor, this seems excessive."
Pros: "The aircraft (a 777) and the on-board amenities and service."
Cons: "Too many clueless passengers. I could not wait for the flight to end. It took a full hour and a half to get my single suitcase at the Kolkata airport."

Pros: "My first and hopefully not last flight on one of the world's best airlines."

Cons: "the airplane was an older model, seats were not very comfortable"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Better comfort with Airbus 380 but food remains a concern"
Pros: "Crew were lovely very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Ground staff was quite rude refused to let us access the lift so we could board from the upper deck even though we were business class. She insisted that I walk round and board from where she was because she didn't want to walk a few steps and swipe her card for us to access the lift."
Pros: "Felt at home"
Cons: "I Was sick had a flu ! I asked for tea and I was waiting for about an hour :("

Pros: "A few of your flight crew were very nice and apologized for conditions. Free wine."

Cons: "I got food poisoning on this flight. Cramped in the middle seat for 14 hours while throwing up was not pleasant."
Pros: "The Airbus was very good -as comfortable as possible in Economy."
Cons: "It was a little noisy in our seats (we were next to one of the crew areas). But the biggest gripe was about the way we were treated when queuing. We all expect to have to wait our turn but it's incredibly frustrating when 1) the system isn't fair (eg splitting a queue into two then allowing those behind you to go to the front of a new line) and 2) treating us like second class by drawing a curtain in front of our faces so Business class people don't have to see us when they disembark."
Cons: "The crew was very impolite."
Pros: "The crew, overall were very alloof and disengaged. Rarely did we hear "your welcome" after saying thank you. We were made to feel as if we were interrupting their real work."
Cons: "The crew needs to remember that how consumers feel is almost as important as price. There are other choices that for air travel. It's costs nothing to smile, or to say your welcome."
Pros: "Nothing much to complain about"
Cons: "Shuttters always closed"
Pros: "Connection flights less time spent in transit"
Cons: "Crew not very friendly"
Pros: "Great entertainment offers."
Cons: "Luggage did not make it to final destination....still a waiting delivery of them."

Pros: "on borad crew Food entertainment plane"
Cons: "wheel char request poorly managed in Dubai and Amman Seating area next to crying children for 5 hrs + is horrible"
Cons: "Food and entertainment"
Pros: "All was good. Excellent price. Plenty of space. Crew was nice and helpful, as always with Turkish Airlines. The flight was on schedule."
Cons: "The food was basic, but I understand this, as we have the pandemics, and there is no opportunity for cooking."
Pros: "All what you served !"
Cons: "Everything is okey !"
Pros: "Food is amazing."
Cons: "Row was very crowded. Seats much too close together."
Cons: "Check in is insanely long. Terminal 1 at JFK as usually Absolutely terrible. Line to go thru TSA is exacting 40 min at 12 am Midnight. We pay so much (in the price of our ticket) to be treated as cattle !!!"
Pros: "The food was amazing and the crew was great from Chicago to Instanbul."
Cons: "Boarding seemed a bit unorganized and the crew from Instanbul to Zurich spoke very little English."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff, clean."
Cons: "The flight was extremely hot the whole time. it was very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Si Much!!"
Pros: "My languages are all damaged."

Cons: "I like the food and the service."
Pros: "Entertainment options good"
Pros: "Airplane crew was amazingly friendly and helpful"

Pros: "Great food and on board service"
Cons: "I missed a bit more leg room to be able to sleep ok"
Pros: "Turkish Airlines always has decent food and entertainment."
Cons: "An hour late with no apologies. And seats are so small, the people sitting next to me were so large that I didn’t have enough room."
Pros: "Service was excellent Food was delicious..."
Cons: "Everything was perfect..."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled twice within 24 hours before takeoff. All I got was an email saying it was cancelled and a number where no one could help me. I spent over $40 international calls just to reschedule my flight, only to have to take a $80 cab to the airport to have a human help me. Worst customer service and worst experience. I was trying to get home after a natural disaster struck my hometown and Turkish Airlines actually made that experience even worse. At no point did anyone even apologize for cancelling two of my flights without another option until a full week later. I had to pay to fly myself home from Boston because they were so unhelpful. Would never recommend Turkish Airlines to anyone I know whn traveling internationally."
Pros: "Extras provided - eye mark, socks etc"
Cons: "My seat was unable to recline. My husband and I were moved to a middle aisle (although we really didn't want to share) only to find that the foot rest at my foot rest was also faulty. It was an uncomfortable flight"
Pros: "Lots of in flight entertainment options. Good meals. Very nice and helpful attendants."
Cons: "Flight attendants need to be friendly ."
Pros: "The food was delicious. I loved that there were blankets, pillows, and headphones for everyone and they were not at extra cost. We also received care bags with lip balm, socks, slippers and a night mask as well as a toothbrush and toothpaste. The flight did not seem like 12 hours. Thankfully."
Pros: "Offered us a free meal for the poor service."
Cons: "Old, uncomfortable plane. Took off 30-40 minutes late. Poor quality food. Circled Istanbul airport for 15 minutes without any communication. Flight arrived late, but no info. on connecting flights provided. At least eight passengers ran through the Istanbul airport to catch the connecting flight to Rome and, despite the fact that the plane was still at the gate, the gate staff person would not allow any of us on the flight. Customer service staff were unhelpful and had a negative attitude. The transfer were helpful."
Pros: "The care taken to wrap the electronic equipment you were mandated to confiscate. That part was handled well"
Cons: "Retrieving the electronic equipment was a chaotic nightmare. There was no order. There were two lines where passenger did line up in than others cut the line claiming they had connecting flights. Those in charge never verified whether they were connecting to another flight. Never asked for their boarding pass. I heard some laughing saying they did no have connecting flights. I better job and method of handling this situation is needed as long as the ban is in effect. Otherwise, Turkish airlines is fine. My wife and I have traveled most airlines and travel extensively. So, we are aware of good service and bad. Your service minus the electronic equipment is good."
Pros: "My above score should be 5 stars in all categories. They were running a special price on business class upgrades. It was fabulous: food great, service attentive, and seat that totally reclined to bed. I slept over 8 hours."
Cons: "I could not change the stars above."
Pros: "The flight and crew were fine. The food and drinks are free, which I wish some US carriers would take note of and adopt."

Pros: "Crews attitude, professional behavior"
Cons: "Not enough leg room in economy class"
Pros: "It was great to be fed, especially a full meal, on such a short flight."
Cons: "They ran out of homemade lemonade with fresh mint before I got any."
Cons: "Entertainment system was present, but not working. Short enough flight that we didn't need it, though"
Cons: "It was not comfortable at all No space the cherries no nice"
Pros: "Never again shame Missed connexion in Istanbul no service awful and lack of respect no more such a disaster no Thanx 3rd and last time"
Pros: "I really like the food and the crew members. they all were very kind and nice to us."
Cons: "Turkish airlines do not care at all about passengers from other countries (other that western Europe and USA) - my flight was cancelled but the airline reps did not bother to tell 150 plus passengers until the end... passengers got angry and one rep took us to the hotel desk, confusing with boarding passes and passport control on the way - forcing us to waster 3-4 hours; we were provided hotel accomodation at midnight (flight was supposed to take off at 9 pm - maybe they were avoiding to spend on out meals???"
Pros: "see above"
Pros: "Staff on plane were friendly and respectful"
Cons: "Landing was rough , boarding gate is isolated from amenities"
Pros: "The entertianment and food was excellent."
Cons: "The cabin crew seemed like they were on drugs. They gave us food and collected the trays 2 hours later. First time ive ever experienced this with turkish airlines."
Pros: "Wonderful food and service and movies."
Cons: "First let me tell you that when I booked a flight to Istanbul from Brussels, I booked, so I thought, the airport called Istanbul Ataturk with the initials of IST. What I got was SAW after I paid for a booking that said IST. Sabina Gokcen is one hour away further on the Asian side of Turkey. I did not want this airport! There was nothing I could do about this but bite the bullet & accept what I got since I was not allowed to have any corrections made after paying for this ticket. I am highly disappointed with Kayak. The first time you have disappointed me greatly!"
Pros: "Entertainment (movies) always helpful to pass the time."
Cons: "Hot in the plane during and after boarding - no cool air. I have come to expect more from Turkish Airlines, and I hope they make sure they improve this aspect."

Cons: "Canceled the outgoing flight"
Pros: "Friendly people , correct timing , good prices"
Cons: "The chairs didn,t go well for sleeping And we had 12 hrs to do ."
Pros: "Good movies to watch and food was also pretty good"
Pros: "Really amazing except for..."
Cons: "Stewardesses did their jobs, but as far as checking on passengers at non-food and assigned drink times, they were sitting in the back drinking coffee and talking. On top of not making rounds, there was no call button to summon a stewardess. Twice, my husband who was ill had a "coughing attack" and needed a glass of water... there was nobody was available. A passenger had to go and get them from the back. Perhaps due to this being a 13 hour flight, this is not a normal situation for them, but to go three hours at a time without taking a stroll through the cabin seems unprofessional. Otherwise this airline really does amazing service! I did not realize that such airline service still existed. American ones should pay attention!"
Cons: "Very good experience on a nonstop from San Francisco to Istanbul & on to Thessaloniki. Very friendly professional staff. Good food. Charge outlets at the seats. Big choice of free movies. Istanbul airport is very busy. We had delays arriving and leaving for the connection."
Pros: "Food was good. Service was excellent."
Pros: "First of all, the food is fantastic is you are not a meat and potatos (or big mac) kind of person. My original flight left late due to a hold up in security in Chicago. Turkish Air was very responsive and easy to work with when I missed my connector in Istanbul. Friendly crew. Clean jet. Will definitely use them agian."

Pros: "They change my seat from middle to window, but that’s all."

Cons: "Wifi access"
Pros: "Crew were very good"
Cons: "We had a delay caused by over filling of fuel"
Pros: "Crew and airline was fine"
Cons: "Due to the way the flights were booked, even though I flew on the same airline on both legs of my trip they were two separate bookings causing me to wait in line for two hours in Heathrow to get my bags and check back in. I will probably never use kayak / kiwi.com again."
Pros: "Comfortable new plane, friendly staff."
Cons: "Not having over an hour delay followed by buses to disembark resulting in a missed connection."
Pros: "Crew did their best to deal with the multiple delays."
Cons: "Having a plane that was properly prepared to fly. Not stealing my Limoncello Cream and tape measure."

Pros: "Not being squeezed into a claustrophobic window seat."
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Pros: "It's a non-stop from Austin to Heathrow. Flight attendants were helpful and professional. Flight was on time."
Cons: "This 747 should be refurbished or retired. I've traveled this flight on 777s and newer 747s. This plane was an embarassment."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful cabin crew, even on this short flight. I liked the fact that the Captain stood outside the flight deck to say goodbye to the passengers. A nice touch."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and seemed preppared to do their job well."
Cons: "The seats were very tight, even smaller than other flighs that I have been on."
Cons: "We had a horrible experience in boarding BA both in Chicago and returning from London. In both instances, our seats were held back, told the flight was oversold (we booked 90 prior to the flight, and almost didn't get on the flight returning home. Our confirmed flight was meaningless. I'll never use Kayak again."
Pros: "I did like how efficiently the transfer was handled to the other plane, and I did like that we got a five pound voucher to get something to eat."
Cons: "I didn't like that, having boarded, and waiting for half hour, we had to leave the plane due to some electrical issue, and had to get another plane, which delayed our trip by three hours. I feel something like that should have been noticed before we boarded."
Pros: "The food and the services. The plane looks new and clean. Many new release movies."
Cons: "seat space is too small and not comfort."
Cons: "As per above"
Pros: "Nice crew, short flight, comfortable seats."

Pros: "Great flight and services"
Cons: "It was all good"

Cons: "The fact I could not even get a glass of water without a credit card."

Pros: "Scum bags wanted >$5k to change flights, daylight robbery"
Pros: "Very pleasant crew"
Cons: "Price & food not so good."
Pros: "I require a wheelchair for getting around the airport. When I first checked in at LHR, they claimed to have no record of my wheelchair request and my seat change, despite my very clear notations of who and when these were made. They did have a record of my paying for one suitcase. The agent at LHR promised to make these corrections so I would not have the same problem when returning to London. Furthermore, to turn this into a humiliating situation, at the gate I was informed that the jetway was broken and they would have to find some other way to get me onboard the plane. I cannot believe that British Airways has no contingency plan for a situation like mine. After many discussions between BA reps and ground crewmen they decided to bring me down in a lift at Gate 34, though my plane was at Gate 32. I was then loaded onto the freight platform of one of those food delivery trucks and driven over to my plane. The truck backed into place and again I hoisted up to the plane. However the plane door was locked and we had to bang on it for them to finally open it. To my great embarrassment I helped down the aisle to my assigned seat, looking back at the curious looks and glares from all those passengers who had no explanation for the delay and humiliating scene. Officially the flight was listed at 28 minutes late, when in reality it was 40 minutes till we taxied away from the gate My return flight from Brussels was little better because the changes that were supposed to have been entered at LHR never were and so I had to go through this whole routine again costing me over one hour in delays. Fortunately I was able to board the flight through the jetway and did not have to be hoisted up again, and delivered like freight. How would you rate these flights. I had problems with every single British Airways flight!!"
Pros: "Extended information from the captain was very nice"
Pros: "Seats were great"
Cons: "No free entertainment"
Pros: "Got food poisoning from flight or Italian restaurant at terminal 3"
Pros: "the plane was clean"
Cons: "3 hour delay, no communication with customers regarding delay or connection. Once we finally arrived st Heathrow for the 2nd leg of our journey, we were put on a later connection, no apologies whatsoever from any of the employees. Overall we spent over 4 hours in the air. We were never served even a glass of water or a bag of pretzels. The seats were very tight with very little leg room, and I am only a 5'6" female."
Cons: "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."
Cons: "Boarding the plane. I do not know why the airlines load the people who are at the front of the plane first. Load the people on the back of the plane first. That way, when you call the next section, the people in the back are not blocking people as they enter. An alternative is to call people in sections based on where they sit in a row. If you have window seat, you should be called first. Why? Because so many passengers who have aisle seats have to get up to let people with middle or window seats get in. So, they hold traffic up as people are trying to get to their seats. After window seat passengers get called, then call middle seat passengers, and last, call aisle seat passengers."
Pros: "I was prepared with my smart phone and iPad and external batteries, turns out I needed none of those things! What a pleasant surprise for the in flight movies, music and tv to be perfect. I didn't even have to use my external battery on the flight because there is a perfect USB port in the screen in front of you. The food was as good as airplane good gets, the plane incredibly comfortable and staff was attentive. I don't love the long flights but this BA flight is now my go to anytime Im headed to Europe."
Pros: "Al parts of flight expertly handled by staff, especially cabin people. Thanks for a great flight, VA."
Cons: "The seats on this British Airways flight were so tight and pitched forward that my knees were jammed into the seat in front of me and I felt as if I was being launched forward the entire flight. Not comfortable or safe."
Pros: "I wish the menu can be more kid friendly. I enjoy the food no my kiddos"
Cons: "Missed my connecting flight and experience was horrible"
Cons: "Missed the flight and the next flight was to expense had to take a train to my destination and pay $400 extra dollars. Was at airport and checked in 2 hours early sitting at what seemed to be the only London flight going out. Our flight was not listed on the computer monitors and we checked it several times. Our names were not announced over loud speaker and no one helped us to rebook."
Cons: "The seat arrangement is awkward with very tight seats. Little room for storing personal items and no privacy whatsoever on aisle seats. Entertainment system needs updating. Moving map was not working."
Pros: "Service was very good."
Cons: "No choice of main dish for lunch."
Pros: "This was a simple, smooth flight."
Cons: "Even though we had assigned seats we did not get them. Flight was late to depart and really close to lose our connection flight, which for a flight that is less than 1hr you are hoping that should never happen."
Cons: "for my flight from London to Seattle I tried to check in the day before online and it said online check in was unavailable. Then when i got to the airport in London i tried checking in at the kiosk and it said it could not confirm my booking. i was brought to a help desk where they said they had to release a seat for me because the flight was so full. It was very stressful and the employees didn't seem too concerned. I understand they may deal with this on a daily basis but to me it was scary to think i may not get on a plane home when i paid over $1000.00 and it wouldn't let me check in early. I would have appreciated a little empathy."
