Pros: "crew was super attentive, seat was very comfortable, but a few of the buttons did not work properly."

Pros: "Crew, food and entertainment. Seats were okay."
Cons: "Our Kochi to Dubai flight was late, the bus at Dubai airport was extremely slow and we reached Dubai airport two minutes prior to the closing of the boarding of the onward flight. We had to literally run to catch our onward flight to Boston. However, the ground staff at Dubai were excellent, called the gate staff to alert them about us and managed to get us on board. Surprisingly, our luggage was also loaded on to the same flight and we couldn't believe we got the luggage in Boston! Overall, all went well."
Pros: "Because i changed to business class, it was a different experience. Comfort, convenience, good service."
Cons: "All went well."
Cons: "— Better Seat assignments , —Boarding pass issuer must know well —how to take care — seat & boarding assignments , —Food with some standards (at least to match with other airlines , at least 3 choices) — On time food serve — Crew must care the requests/needs (at least to respond timely"

Cons: "If they could have offered neck rubs (jokingly)"

Pros: "Service level of cabin crew and ICE."
Cons: "The long wait to exit from the aircraft and to pick up my baggages from the carousel at Mcr airport. The main meal chicken curry & rice was a disappointment as the curry appeared slimy and starchy.

Pros: "I love everything about Emirates."
Pros: "Nothing, it did not felt like an Emirates flight."
Cons: "The ICE on this flight is ancient, the seats are narrow, food was okay, nothing special. This is an old 777, which needs a refurbishment badly. Boarind experience is blah. After checking in you find yourself in a waiting hall with all the other passengers."

Pros: "Punctual on Time. Clean Cabin. Nice Crew"
Cons: "They should be little flexible in timing for serving Dinner, as it happened, they served Dinner as soon as the Seat belt sign was switched off, at that time it was 4 pm local time.

Cons: "Old plane with old seats."

Also for a 14 hour flight there needs to be bottles of water handed out and someone should be on board to clean the rest rooms half way thru the trip"

Cons: "The lactose free meal was disgusting."

I have to take the bag all the way to front. The crew is very lazy and too much attitude, wont fly this flight any more."

Plane was two hours late with no explanation or communication. I did not expect such a poor level of service and it my worst experience with emerits."
Pros: "It's not horrible; just not up to world class standards of Singapore, Virgin, Emirates, United, or top airlines."
Cons: "Business Class: You have to place your order for all food and drink at the start of the flight because the flight attendant disappears after serving. Want a refill of wine? Tough bananas. Forget to order dessert? You're out of luck."

Pros: "Friendly service."
Cons: "Boarding process could improve"
Pros: "I have found Sri Lankan staff to be most friendly and accommodative."
Cons: "Unfriendly ambiance. Disorganized boarding. I’m even a member of Fly Smiles. The flight attendant named Chanaka moved 2 old passengers on my side. I kindly requested to another staff if I can just move seat too because I am not comfortable. But request no action. The cabin crew are not that caring because I took care of the 2 passengers. I just don’t understand why they are unfriendly. I will not choose this airlines again."
Pros: "Really good food the and crew on the plane was nice."
Cons: "In the Delhi airport we never interacted with anyone from Sri Lankan Airlines because a third party was contracted to work the counters, check us in, issue boarding passes, etc... These workers were all maybe 20 years old and possessed what seemed like zero training to do their job at all. They never had any answers and just smiled while saying “I don’t know” a million times. We were corralled and moved and waited hours while they ran around doing nothing."
Cons: "Flight was late and because of that we missed adelaide flight"
Pros: "Friendly crew and great food"
Cons: "Delay to take off"
Pros: "Acceptable but not exceptional as expected"
Cons: "Unfortunately the it was a bumpy ride as most of the time the seat belt sign was on and crew had to discontinue services for a while. This was beyond airlines control. The crew did not distribute the Sri lankan landing cards onboard. This caused some confusions for first time travellers as they had to cone off the immigration queue and went to pick the card up and to complete. Some foreigners were unhappy about it."

Cons: "Not enough leg space, cramped seats"
Pros: "Also perfect"
Pros: "Flight was delayed for 2 hours"

Pros: "The cabin crew were friendly and attentive, I was quite impressed with the food, and they served a good white wine. I was happy to find an excellent choice of movies, tv shows and music with a simple, intuitive system for playing them."
Cons: "There were problems in the bathroom. All the paper towels were in a heap on the floor, and the sink was blocked. I told the stewardess, and she just shrugged. Obviously there are no bathroom checks on Srilankan Airlines and I don’t think that’s good enough."
Cons: "The airline needs to work on the human touch(crew). I did not understand why the immigration were questioning foreign travels for no reason. Lastly can’t reach the customer care number always gets disconnected."
Cons: "There was no uniform procedure in the flights, crew is too lazy to perform their duties. probably the first and last flying with Sri Lankan."
Cons: "We really appreciate your prompt response.Your customer service guidance is supportive for us"
Cons: "We really appreciate your prompt response.Your customer service guidance is supportive for us."

Pros: "comfortable timing for india."
Cons: "1.we seated at UL 604 / 52K video was not updated , one one movie was displayed. 2.

They discriminate with respect to whites and Indian's. Its really bad."

My travel was of 10 hours and after 3 hours of departure I started having pain in my back...seat was poorly structured. . Its like cushion of seats were dead n on top of it that cushion behind back was too outside.. I was not able to sleep at all as was not comfortable.. Also there was no system at Srilankan airport.. No barriers for travelers so that people stand in cue but no one was following lines as there were none.. Will never fly with Srilankan airlines again ever.."
Cons: "For a family of 4, 3 of us had continual problems with the sound on the entertainment system during movies, etc"

Cons: "1. The crew from Abu Dhabi to Belgrade was appalling. As we touched down at Belgrade Tesla airport, and were still taxiing, many passengers stood up, opened up the overhead compartments, took out their carry-on bags (some were pretty big hard top) and left it on the aisle. The overhead compartment doors were left open and once or twice the crew at the back murmured them to sit on their seats and strap themselves. But neither did the crew come up to severely reprimand them nor did the passengers seem to care. IT WAS THE MOST SHOCKING EXPERIENCE in my over 25 years of flying. Terrible service on part of Etihad Crew. 2. We'd just an hour's transit in Abu Dhabi airport and there were numerous passengers still trying to disembark from the Kochi-Abu Dhabi flight, pass through security checks, walk quite a distance to the gate and then get on to the bus to board the aircraft. Strangely there was no Etihad personnel helping us to navigate through this absolute chaos. Many people, young and old, were literally running with their bags. Some of us yelled that we'd a short connection and then one of the ground staff tried to make way for us to navigate through the huge queues waiting for security. This process could've been managed infinitely better. Just imagine if there were elderly passengers or little children? 3. Food was terrible. I'm a vegetarian and usually Asian vegetarian is reasonably good. In this case the rice was poorly cooked (grainy), lacked any variety (anybody who's familiar with Asian food can assure you that there're amazingly tasty and healthy vegetarian dishes that can be prepared - if Etihad needs help they're welcome to contact me). I'm surprised by all this. Try Emirates and one can see the quality of the food. 4. We'd to collect our boarding passes at Belgrade airport. We've a carte de legitimation (CDL) residence card for Switzerland but it seemed obvious that the ground staff at Belgrade have no clue what a Swiss CDL looks like. My wife who's a South African national cannot obviously enter Switzerland without a visa but the CDL is a legitimate document and that should have been it. Further we'd been checked in from Kochi to Zurich (and our bags had been checked through to ZRH). It's obvious that Belgrade staff are poorly trained and it caused unnecessary waiting time (nearly 30 minutes) and senior staff had to be summoned to clarify. I'm terribly disappointed with the overall service of Etihad. I'll never fly through Belgrade for sure. It's horrible and the travel desk were not particularly helpful. In fact I'm considering never to fly Etihad again."
Pros: "The seat were nice & the staff more helpful than before"
Cons: "Food can be better Entertainment is not good at all, you are starting it after take off, which might take an hour, and closing it an hour before landing Which is something not nice at all"

Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "Bigger and more comfortable seats"
Pros: "Flight was on time and arrived a bit early. Seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Check-in process could be better. I was in the baggage drop off line which was much shorter line yet it took a long time to get to the agent. Need more agents at the counter. Boarding could be more structured and efficient. Boarding by zone was not followed. Food was mediocre."
Pros: "Main meal (Singapore noodles) was actually ok."

Cons: "Crew was bad/ food options were horrible/ boarding wasn’t very comfortable/ space in the aircraft was bad/ entertainment was limited/"
Pros: "The crew were pleasant and visible."
Cons: "Food quality was pretty poor. It used to be so good. I had sea bass which was so dry. There were a group of 30 people travelling together. They monopolised the lobby bar and were rowdy and noisy despite requests from the crew. The flat bed is so hard, it needs a mattress."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating while the flight was quick and carefree"
Cons: "Though it was a very short flight, refreshments were served. These were a kind gesture, but the effort was worth more than the items served. Next time, just drinks would be great!"

Cons: "meals could be improved"
Pros: "Timing was maintained"
Cons: "I checked in at Hyderabad and the check in staff were more than unprofessional. First they said my carry on bag and laptop bag should be no more than 7 kgs which was wrong. Later when I asked them to show the baggage restrictions, they went back saying it's okay. I had only 1 check in bag and it weight 1 kg more. I thought they would allow it since I had only 1 check in bag but they made me take out that extra kg and check in my carry on as second bag. Finally I asked for an aisle seat and they said the flight was full. But when I boarded the IAD flight I was rather surprised to see quite a few aisle and window seats. So rather than being a great experience, I would say it was a mediocre one because of the Hyderabad staff."
Cons: "If anything it would be the terminal 1 lounge at Abu Dhabi airport. It is pretty poor compared to the other lounge."
Cons: "The temperature in the plane was too high ie it was too hot and not enough drinks given out"
Cons: "Delay of 2 hours in taking g off. We were all about n the plane. Not enough explanation given for this"

Cons: "Trip was a disaster"
Cons: "was a packed old plane. It left nearly 2 hours late without any proper explanation food was awful the service was dull. It was a very bad experience overall and checking in and making my reservation was bad because all the information BA already has about me I had to re-enter including my passport."
Pros: "Wonderful to fly on a small airline that still believes in service - a free cup of coffee and a Tunnocks biscuit - whereas many larger airlines charge for coffee etc."
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: "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: "Gave me a bagel before landing."
Cons: "Boarding process was disorganized, no one helping adjust suitcases to maximize space (one guitar laid on its back instead of standing on its side took an entire bin instead of half), the flight attendant woke me up to lift my seat back because the person behind me wanted to eat. Their flawed design is not my problem."

Late departure for no good reason, watched our plane at the gate being prepared for over an hour, we finally took off but missed our connection and therefore missed our Cruise Ship departure. We were put up in a hotel but upon landing in Rome, we opted to wait at the airport in lieu of the second hotel because of the timing as we had to catch a 6 a.m. train to get to Livorno to meet the Ship, it's first stop. Up for 36 hrs as we got little sleep, and were very tired."
Pros: "Comfortable on plane. Pleasnt crew"
Cons: "Boarding could be bettet done.. .miss the free drink"
Pros: "the plane landed safely"
Cons: "a lot of confusion between in flight staff and ground staff as to where to go and what to do concerning transfers to ongoing flights, security, tight layover etc . It was like it was everyones first day on the job."
Pros: "One aspect that was greatly appreciated was when the cabin head came over the speaker and asked everyone to please return their seat to the up right position so that everyone could enjoy their meal. When you sit in the main cabin, it's incredibly frustrating to have the person in from of you recline their seat. There is little room, and for the most part everyone is pretty selfish about that."
Cons: "The cabin crew got a little snippy. Understandable. It is a long flight."
Cons: "I understand the flight was delayed because of the thunderstorm, but even then, the boarding process was horrible, at the airport they didn't know what was going on and people could board with no logic. It's also unbelievable that with a flight with such a delay, where we were told that at the gate that there was a limited amount of food on board, whatever was available (even water) was not kindly offered, but was on sale only."
Pros: "Good smooth journey"
Cons: "There was no entertainment"
Cons: "I was not able to sleep given the small business class seats."
Pros: "Almost nothing on this flight."
Cons: "Boarded on time then 40 minute delay before take off. After we landed the plane came to a sudden stop and the Captain told us the lights to guide us to the appropriate place were not working this was a long delay. When we got to the disembarking area we had another long wait and the reason was due to the bridge not working,eventually we went out the back of the plane. The most unbelievable problem was the announcement just before take off that both rear toilets were out of action,since the flight was late this was an issue and I do not believe that both toilets could be broken more likely that there was no person available to clean them."
Pros: "Excellent, courteous crew. Flight punctual."
Pros: "Leg room was decent enough."
Cons: "I’m stuck on a plane for hours. Don’t abuse this by trying to charge me for food and drinks. Especially when I can’t bring my own drinks unless bought at extortionate airport prices."
Pros: "The flight kept getting delayed, but made up during flight so I was able to catch my connection in Frankfurt. Very pleased about that."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 50 minutes and the gate was not available until 30 minutes of departure. Tap water, really?"
Pros: "The cabin crew were very nice, pilot announcements clearly audible"
Cons: "Check-in/bag drop area at Berlin TXL is poorly organized. Need an attendant to help with line management. No free snack on board — not even a peanut or a pretzel! Purchase only."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and on time, plane was clean and warm."
Cons: "Did not think this was any better than the budget airlines, I expected more from British Airways, no entertainment on board - food limited, some gifts ran out."
Pros: "Thanks for many up to date movie choices to watch. Crew worked hard to keep the toddlers in front of me happy. (and they were really good with them!)"
Cons: "Dislike posting of gate assignments in Edinburgh and London so late. Means I have to hightail it across the terminals, every time. Dislike the gate change posting late. Had to hear about it from a passenger, no announcement was made. My chicken and potatoes lunch had potatoes as the side dish. Looked like the caterer had leftover potatoes to use! No real vegetables. 2 bites of spinach. Red wine was offered they had no white wine. No choice of sodas..."
Cons: "no free food in a 2h flight??!! thia is a low xoat airline standard!!"
Pros: "Friendly and quick service."
Cons: "Waiting for a space at the terminal."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "I had to throw away some very expensive facial creams/cosmetics on my connecting British Airway flight from London to MAdrid. I suddenly had to fit everything I had into a very small bag. They said it was policy, but I had been on a British Airway flight the whole time! Why was it allowed when I boarded?"
Cons: "2 Hour Delay"
Cons: "As per above"
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly, the meals and entertainment were good"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Arm rests on plane do not raise up all the way. I tried to lay down because the seat next to me was empty but I could not. Person operating the jet bridge took 20 minutes to learn how to operate it. We sat on the tarmac for an extended time"
Pros: "Efficient boarding."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Great crew with Laura, Luke and the team in Club World."
Cons: "BA lounge in Heathrow Terminal 3 had it's days and needs upgrade."
Pros: "It got me to where needed to get to. First flight in 12 months that wasn’t delayed."
Cons: "Poor value for money. The food & drink selection (that you have to pay for) is abysmal. UK Border is a joke, 20+ passport desks but only 2 are ever occupied, ePassport gate DOESNT work (won’t eork if you have kids). Zero f**ks given. #BrexitBritain #BrokenBritain"
Pros: "Seat felt very uncomfortable and as though it was about to break! Very cramped."
Pros: "Basically nothing"
Cons: "They should do announcements properly, and the crew attitude is awful."

Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Crew was amazing, & purchased food was extraordinary quality."
Cons: "We traveled with a wheelchair person, but they boarded her separately from the rest. That meant she was without anyone she knew for some time. It'd been better to allow @ least 1 person of her people w/ her while she boarded."
Cons: "The ground crew in Mumbai let on a very drunk group of men who became more and more problematic. Eventually they had to be removed which let to a further delay to an already delayed flight. Bad"
Pros: "Flight delay"

Cons: "everything has to be improved"
Cons: "Nothing I didn't like"
Pros: "The staff at the airport check in counter cause too many delays by asking unnecessary questions regarding visa for concerned country, where as they only need to check for onward ticket. Also, passenger at the back of my seat was causing discomfort by stretching his legs too close to my seat"
Cons: "The staff at the aiport check in counter are not very well trained regarding visa requirements for other countries. The cabin crew needs to better train passengers regarding the amount of space allowed for their seat."
Pros: "Seats very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Separate counters for wheel chair passengers as well as bus transport. There were several unruly travellers and it is not fair that ground staff should have to remind passengers of protocol. Separate transport will help."
Pros: "No, not really, especially the boarding crew. Where was chaos and signs of lack of planning. Gate changed towards the end and sequential boarding wasn’t done properly."

Pros: "Seat is as good as a concrete slab of a park bench."
Cons: "Late departure. No communication to passengers. Taking passengers to aircraft in a bus before it is ready and making them wait for a long time. In fact the passengers from incoming flight were disembarking when we were taken to the aircraft. Last week also it was the same story."
Cons: "Waited close to an hour for collecting baggage at the terminal"
Cons: "Could have been on time"
Cons: "Legspace for passengers"
