Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Yes crew was great"
Cons: "More leg space"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Everyone was helpful."
Cons: "Check in was terrible- long wait just for drop off of already checked in bags"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to crew not being available."
Pros: "I was originally booked through jfk with an 80 minute layover. When I told a delta.help desk employee i feared it was too tight (I flew out through jf k and that was enough to convince me...) he booked me through Atlanta with a.comfortable schedule. Thank you!"
Cons: "It made no sense to board an hour and a half before takeoff."
Pros: "The boarding was fast and very well handled."
Pros: "Boarding time, and timely departure"
Cons: "This was my worst EVER airline experience. It was delayed 27 hours and the snow was not the only problem. When we finally got on board a plane we sat on the runway for over two hours - then they FORGOT to load the luggage!!!"
Pros: "Early and middle seat was open!"
Cons: "Coffee tasted like fish. :("
Pros: "Hostess were professional and warm"
Cons: "Seats was too tight, no leg room and no room for stretching"
Cons: "Had a 5 hour layover - booked first class but this did not entitle me to use the delta lounge in seattle. Snacks only on the flight."
Cons: "Left 30 minutes late from SLC."
Cons: "The monitors kept on freezing"
Pros: "The crew is always wonderful. The complimentary beverage and snack really makes the flight better, even in the tiny seats. The flights with tv screens and charging ports are great, although they only seem to be on my shorter of the two connecting flights."
Cons: "Crew allows the first zones to place both their carryon and personal items in overhead storage, filling the bins before many travelers board the plane. We are then asked to check our bag, and are forced to put our 1 bag between our legs, whole many people stored two overhead. Flight was delayed a few minutes and time was not made up in air. Delta changed a few of our flights before we were even off the plane, while other passengers were allowed to keep their original flight (originally we all had the same connecting flight). Looks to me like they overbooked and pulled some of us randomly. Also, my checked bag was sent on wrong plane, and sat unattended at next airport for 2 hours."
Pros: "Friendly staff. :)"
Cons: "Longer flight with no WiFi or video. :("
Pros: "Even though we were in the very back row, we did not experience a foul smell from the restrooms. This was a very nice relief. It is bad enough that the seats don't recline and there is no window in the very back row but prior experience with the added nausea of foul restroom order has been a serious insult to injury. In this case there was really minimal odor. Also since we are traveling as a family we are very happy that we were seated together. We have experienced the past that sometimes our seats will be fragmented and that creates major challenges when you are traveling with young children. However on this particular flight the ride was rough during both takeoff and landing, a lot of side to side shimmy. Also the cabin pressure varied quite a bit during landing causing all the kids to complain about some discomfort in their ears."
Pros: "Very comfortable and didn't feel cramped. Quick flight."
Cons: "No choice in snack and I couldn't eat what I was given. Staff appeared checked out and not bothered. No entertainment but it was a quick flight."
Cons: "Flight was moved up from 830am departure to 6am departure with very little notice, and my layover was reduced from almost 2hrs to 30 minutes. Then, my bag was lost. Terrible."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding. Quick flight"
Cons: "Audio entertainment quite limited"
Pros: "The service was good"
Cons: "The flight was very rough on landing"
Cons: "Due to the earthquakes, the film festival I was going to was cancelled. Ten days prior to the flight I called AeroMexico to cancel and they said there would be a cancellation penalty, which was fine. When I tried to redeem my credit, they said there was also an additional "No-show fee" even though I called to cancel 10 days prior, which left a total of $70 credit after all their penalties. I called and emailed to complain but they did nothing but pass me to someone else who was equally unhelpful. I will never fly AeroMexico for any reason in the future."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival. The Airbus plane has enough legroom for tall persons."
Pros: "For a short flight, they gave it drinks and snacks."
Pros: "Pilots skill - it was raining hard when we landed"

Pros: "Service was great, flight was excellent"
Pros: "Flight was delayed for over 6 hours. Not an ideal way to spend the day."
Pros: "Pushed back early, short taxi, took off one minute after scheduled departure, smooth flight, landed a half hour before scheduled time."
Pros: "On Time"
Pros: "I was automatically upgraded."
Cons: "I was upgraded, which I appreciate very much. However, I was upgraded to a window seat. With my bladder situation it was comfortable. This is why I only book aile seats."
Pros: "The infotainment screen on back of headrests."
Cons: "I don't know why delta's service has deteriorated so much in the last few years. Last two times that I flew the service and attitude at the gate has been horrible. Seat assignment has become a dread. Upgrade options are over priced. I guess I will be looking for a new airline."
Pros: "We barely got on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding "red shirt" saved us. We are a band on tour and thanks to her we made the gig"
Pros: "Gate agents were nice, crew was ok"
Cons: "but we could tell they were not happy with something and it's hard to hide that in the way you speak to and treat your passengers."
Pros: "Whoever making announcements from the cockpit seemed excited to be going to the Bahamas. Made the short trip from Atlanta very light hearted."
Pros: "We liked the personalized tv screens on the back of each chair that allowed us to watch free movies. The flight crew was very nice as well."
Cons: "We were delayed on our first leg of the flight so go into SL late but was relieved to see that our second leg was also running about 30 minutes late. Made for a very late night getting home and needing to be to work the next morning."
Pros: "Good Comfort+ seat, but needs a bit more recline - especially on a 9+ hour flight. Nice crew."
Cons: "Glad I have the comfort+ as the other seats have minimal leg room. Bathrooms could use a refresh."
Pros: "Our flight was cancelled and we had to buy $447 worth of Southwest tickets to get home. Our luggage is still missing, by the way."
Pros: "I had ordered a dairy - free vegetarian meal for the international flight. Initially the attendant brought me a vegetarian meal with cheese, part of the regular meal options, then she found the one with my seat number that was dairy - free. It was quite tasty! And I was grateful, since I would not have been able to eat the meal with dairy. It is not a preference, dairy makes me ill. The delay departing from Brussels caused us to miss our connecting flight to Denver, but our provided hotel accommodations in NY were quite comfortable. One item of note: The LaGuardia staff person, who made our arrangements for the overnight stay, said there was a shuttle from the hotel to JFK ( where our flight was in the morning), so she did not give us a travel voucher for the morning. The Hotel only has a shuttle to LaGuardia; it never has a shuttle to JFK. It seems the staff person should have known that. When we called Delta to ask how we should handle that, Delta kindly offered us reimbursement; it was just a phone call and a mailing for us and for Delta that was extraneous. Our interaction with the staff person was entirely pleasant, we were just surprised that there was misinformation."
Pros: "Food was OK. Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "No Entertainment for a 4 hour flight. Plane was very old."
Pros: "Great service, a lot of food, good entertainment"
Cons: "I don't understand why people take babies on red eyes. It makes the flight so unpleasant. I wish airlines would discourage this."

Pros: "Take off and landing"
Cons: "Layover time"
Pros: "Yeah Everything well organized"

Pros: "Nothing, the flight was delayed, the plane too small for passengers to store their carry-on luggage, the ground staff did not upload all the luggage and left some behind in Nairobi on the tarmac, the crew lied about the luggage being uploaded. Terrible experience! Kenya Airways is becoming worst and worst."
Cons: "Everything, the flight was delayed, the plane too small for passengers to store their carry-on luggage, the ground staff did not upload all the luggage and left some behind in Nairobi on the tarmac, the crew lied about the luggage being uploaded.

Pros: "Crew was awesome!!"
Cons: "I paid extra for the seat, but there was a metal box under the seat in front of me that curtailed my ability to stow my carry bag, and my leg room. I am very diappointed that I paid above the normal seat charge as if there was a premium to this seat, but in reality it was a sb par seat."

Pros: "The crew were nice."
Cons: "The boarding process was horrible and it involved climbing down steep stairs from the air tunnel to the tarmac to board a bus that took us to a far distance where the plane was parked. Had to new walk in the sweltering heat to the plane can climb up steep stairs in the heat! We were now kept in the plane for another hour with no aircondotion. It was boiling hot in there. We had to use the safety manuals to fan ourselves. We eventually left late and got to Lagos one and half hours we were meant to get there. Lastly not all the luggage arrived. Two days into my arrival and I am yet to get all my luggage. It was truly a horrible experience which was echoed by fellow passengers."
Pros: "Service was great, flight was on time and I really enjoyed everything"
Cons: "Little turbulence but overall it comes as usual so it was worth the flight"

Pros: "the Airline"
Cons: "The Airport, Security, Boarder control."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The food was really poor. The chicken was as dry as it can be. The food taste was poor. I flow 3 weeks ago with KLM and the food was pretty good for flight food. In a French company I expect much more. The entertainment system on the airbus a380 was like an enchant IT system from the past. Very poor reaction time. Very messy and not people oriented at all. Especially after KLM's And Delta experience."

Cons: "Although incoming plane arrived late, flight home arrived 20 minutes early."
Cons: "Checking, boarding and overall experience"
Pros: "That I got home"
Cons: "Haha where do I start. The experience overall was poor. One of my flights was canceled by British and they claimed I cancelled it. It was a hot mess all the way around. This left we standing outside the airport in Indi for nearly an hour."
Pros: "The crew was behaving nice."
Cons: "The website is horrible and full of bugs. In Flight tracker, the same flight returned two results, one in cancelled status and another in delayed status. I called british airways to update my personal details as their website didn't allow me to enter details, the staff messed up the details."
Cons: "Arrangenents for wheel chairs at London were poor compared to Chicago which was excellent ."
Pros: "Crew were helpful. Food was OK. I had Hindu meal and it was hot and tasty but salty."
Cons: "Seats could have been more comfortable. I am not a tall person so seat spacing was not an issue, but for any one more than 5'8'' tall, seat spacing may be uncomfortable."
Pros: "Arrived earlier than scheduled, crew were informative"
Cons: "Departure was delayed"
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: "What can I say about this awesome flight with great crew and a free upgrade? Fan-dabby-dozy-tastic!"
Pros: "I liked the crew, they were friendly."
Cons: "The food was not that pleasant. They need to have a variety based on their takeoff location."

Cons: "Lost my bag"
Cons: "Very lethargic service and no serving of snacks in between meals"
Cons: "The flight to Heathrow was delayed by 2.30 hours while other flights to London was on time"
Pros: "Only good thing was that British Air didn’t crash us"
Cons: "British Air overbooked the flight; I checked in on time but there were no seat assignments left. I went to the gate anyway to try; the gate attendant kept me waiting for a seat so long that the gate closed. He was not nice. His colleague booked me on a different flight to LCY airport (instead of Heathrow). But that different flight got diverted to Manchester. So the fast that BA overbooked cost me an extra 6 hours and $140 to buy a train & tube ticket to get back to Heathrow. The fact that there was not a single smile among the staff, and I had to argue to even get on the second flight, is inexcusable."
Pros: "Flight left on time. Crew were helpful and friendly. Asian vegetarian meal was good. I had tomato rice, broccoli and eggplant as side dish. Toilets were clean."
Cons: "Breakfast was not great. I had asian vegetarian meal. I had uppuma, mini dosa and sambar and they were tasty. But I also had bread, sweet bread and a piece of sweet cake. Three kinds of bread is not necessary. Too much carbo. Please provide, vegetables like cucumber, tomato and carrot with breakfast. Also chick peas without spices and rava kesari can be served with breakfast."
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable. The crew are OK. No fruit juice or cool drinks."
Cons: "Rude staff, incompetent customer care"
Cons: "The crew were clearly not happy to be here New Year’s morning. They didn’t do the proper number of services, then left many of us with our food trays while they all went to take a lengthy break together. Passengers were using the flight attendants call button, and they were ignored."
Pros: "It was comfortable, the staff were helpful and it was a pleasant flight."
Cons: "I am not tall enough to reach the overhead compartments to place my bag inside. Two passengers kindly helped me on the return flight. On my last trip with BA a 6ft steward told me off for not being able to lift my case over my head and place in the overhead compartment. He refused to help me with my bag he said he had a bad back and I swore I would never fly British Airways again and I wouldn't have if I had realised that my return flight was with them. However, this time was different it was a good flight but if passengers don't help lift my case in the overhead locker in future I have no idea what I will do. I never have this problem with other airlines."
Pros: "Entertainment and space."
Cons: "Seat cushioning, and food quality."
Pros: "This was the first time I had flown into Oakland instead of SFO. It was faster, easier and close to my destination than San Francisco Airport."
Cons: "The selection of music on BA flights has fallen dramatically in the last year. I prefer to listen to music rather than watch movies and in the past there was a good selection and a broad choice."
Cons: "The change of seats with the motove of keeping balance on the plane"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Good hospitality"
Cons: "As to drinks like juices etc there is no suffecient supply"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and roomy."
Cons: "Flight delayed & on a 2+ hr flight you don’t give anything free to drink. What a sorry airline. Not even human."
Cons: "In the last leg ie with breakfast they offered only orange juice coffee or tea but no drinking water."
Pros: "Storage bins next to seat in world traveller plus"
Cons: "Lack of seinking water and no toilet in the world traveller plus cabin - curtains divided off the area blocking access to any toilets!"
Pros: "Leg room, food and entertainment"
Pros: "The plane was comfortable and clean, and there was enough legroom for me even in economy. The flight attendants were friendly and meal services were well timed. For a 10+ hour flight, this was about as comfortable as it could be."
Pros: "Crew were great."
Pros: "Nice plane, very smooth flight, good landing."
Cons: "Small screen on movies, couldn't find charger station for my iPhone."
Pros: "No wait, easy to check in & get luggage"
Cons: "I loved everything except the in flight entertainment which was very limited and boring. Please upgrade it to the high standard and good quality of everything else. I spent the whole flight reading!"
Cons: "Crew did not seem friendly nor as though they wanted to help. Perhaps because they were all young, perhaps some senior crew members to supervise would be beneficial."
Pros: "Some of the cabin crew were friendly."
Cons: "I was in the premium economy section, which was definitely more comfortable than regular steerage but the 777 cabin was old, and the amenities out of date. No plugs for phone or ipad charging; the in flight entertainment system was buggy and the selection was very limited. There was one drink service. Even business class looks worn out and tattered. No wonder the Gulf based airlines are eating their lunch."
Pros: "On time, good entertainment"
Pros: "We were lucky we boarded early because i had reserved the seats in Premium economy and had a baby with us. That's the only good part about the journey"
Cons: "Horrible food No USB or charging ports in aircraft. The plane felt like decade old. Crappy seats with shitty monitors, reclining mechanisms Crew kept disturbing us for food when we were sleeping and kept serving us the meal we didn't order. When u hit the call button no answer! Ba missed our bags stroller and car seat. Thanks but no thanks BA. No one at athe counter to answer"
Pros: "Service was good. 2.5 meals, lots of water and drinks, kind service, kind help desk. Good room between seats"
Cons: "Seat bottoms were painful. TV screens were super old, but thats a very first world complaint."
Pros: "I like the fact that was San Francisco to London just one chunk of the flight."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I did not have enough room for my legs. We were crump like sardines. The food was discusting, unedible. The quality of the air was very bad. It was hard to breath inside."
Pros: "1. MAA - Boarding - grouping should have been more professional"
Cons: "1. I had filled up API information & am an Executive club member. My India contact number is available on record. In spite of that I did not get SMS about flight ETD details or alert. 2. First meal was served about 1 hour after departure, which is Ok. The second meal was served after 8 hours, towards end of flight. 3. BA 36 takes off at ETD 05.30 & travels east. It is always day time as it flies."
Cons: "The plane takeoff time was delayed by almost two hours. When we got to Oakland, waiting for the luggage took an exceptionally long time. Don't understand why we couldn't sit in the waiting room until a "certain time" before getting on the plane, we had to wait outside in a hall with no seats. The room was not being used by anyone else."
Cons: "Not many choices on direct flights from Edinburgh to Shannon our final destination. Waste of time having to fly to London first for a connecting flight"
Cons: "Nothing specific"
Pros: "The experience in baggage counter was pathetic.They charged me more than $200 for my third baggage."
Cons: "The staff at Chennai Airport was unfriendly"
Cons: "My flight was booked for April 25 and my paperwork actually showed that. Upon arrival at Gatwick I was told the flight left on April 24 and no other flight till April 27 so I had to go to Heathrow."
