Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Had premium seat. But since you drive with the bus to the airplane you are mixed up with economy for boarding."

The flight crew were friendly and professional. The food was delicious and sufficient. Overall very happy with my first flight in LOT."
Cons: "Knowing that the incoming was late ground crew could have been better prepared with a motorised transport in the airport (instead of me running out of my breadth). The onboard entertainment could have been better. WiFi in plane would be nice. But these are suggestions. I was overall very happy."

Cons: "The 787 is a very good plane, but I could do without the footrest underneath the seat; it just got in the way."

Cons: "When boarding the crew wasn't inviting they were acting like they did not care at all about the people no smile no hi whatsoever. When I addressed one crew member he was not only occupied watching something in his phone but responded plain rudely to me. Its quite obvious that on the airplane the crew is working. Ukrainian airlines was offering the same trip cheaper but I decided to take LOT. Also I was surprised that I had to pay my luggage in my fly back. Next time I'll try Ukrainian airlines"
Pros: "Boarding process was fine."
Cons: "Old plane. Terrible entertainment system. We ordered Kosher meals. They cam from a company called Stogel. NOT FIT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION. Flight attendants disavowed responsibility for anything other than meal service because "this is not our aircraft.""

Pros: "Professional personal from the check-in desk and crew on the bord. It was easy and very quickly Yo get to warshava from Lviv. Thank you"
Cons: "I like everything! No dislikes!"
Cons: "The entire flight was cancelled. I didn't receive any notification from the airline prior to my arrival at the airport."

Cons: "Boarding que at Warsaw is a mess."
Pros: "Nothing did our. Just another flight."
Cons: "The seat was very worn down and hard."
Cons: "No good meals available in the flight."

Cons: "Delay in boarding (not the airlines fault, I am sure)."
Pros: "Helpful crew"
Cons: "The window shading technology on the Boeing Dreamliner does not block direct sunlight."
Pros: "I guess the plane could have been cancelled, so I should be happy with that."
Cons: "Both planes were late taking off. My wife and I both checked our backpacks, her's made it, mine did not. If my bag comes in they will not deliver it unless someone is there to sign for it. That doesn't work well as we are on vacation and have plans/appointments to be out all day. I'm not sure if I'll ever see my bag again. Avoid this airline if possible. Also boarding is odd as you have to take a bus to the plane, which is slow, extremely crowded, and inefficient."
Pros: "Flight attendant made me a cup of decaf coffee. It was really good. And she found artificial sweetener."
Cons: "Boarding announcements in Warsaw for the flight to New York were ONLY in Polish. This left many passengers confused. I could understand this if the flight were to a Polish destination. During the flight, intercom announcements overrode the Entertainment System at FULL VOLUME - EVERY TIME. it is as though they wanted to maximize our discomfort. I would not fly with Lot again."
Pros: "The Crew was amazing!"
Cons: "The boarding was late!"
Pros: "Crew were responsive. 787 has more legroom & better recliner, window shading was amazing"
Cons: "Vegetarian food quality needs improvement"

Just wished was able to say goodbye to him. Fl EY455 9/3/19. He was heading for Beirut and me to LHR. JUST wish for an ETIHAD CONNECTION. Thanks."
Cons: "The waiting lounge had no info on the outside. We came early, was seated close to the door and I served as the info person."
Cons: "There should be more space between the seat because not all passengers can fit . And every passenger should have a chance to lower there seat without disturbing the passenger behind them ."
Pros: "Only cleanilyness inside the plane"
Cons: "Customer service at the checkin at the airport and also the service by the flight attendant inside the plane"
Pros: "La atención es excelente y la comida a bordo muy buena. El abordaje y entrega de maletas sin problema."

Pros: "They opened counter till before original traveling time by 30 minutes due to bad traffic conditions and delay of plane ."
Cons: "Delay if 1.5 hours to take off , no food was given to me during the 16 hours of flying, part of it I was sleeping, Help bottom was used several time with no response from crew ."
Cons: "Disasterous! The flight departed 3 hours late because of some mechanical problem. So missed connections in Abu Dhabi, although Ethihad could have held a later connection to BKK for just about 20 minutes for us to board. The huge hassle getting lodging from the airline to take an onward flight the next day. Your staff would not accommodate us at the airport hotel so we could avoid the need to obtain a visa, which takes a minimum of 3 hours wait. We finally gave up on the visa and decided to just stay up overnight at the airport. That caused one kind Ethihad staff to finally make issues us an authorization for the hotel at the airport. We would never fly your airline again."
Cons: "Very limited food served at inappropriate times with no flexibility. No information provided on what meals would be served at what times. Very limited entertainment. Very long uncomfortable flight compounded by crew hawking duty free goods like vendors at a fish market, waking many of those who had been fortunate enough to fall asleep."
Cons: "Flight was hot ac not working enough food was horrible."
Pros: "Vegetarian meal."
Cons: "Due to the delay of the first flight, I had to run until my heart aches to catch my second flight in time. Not many people spoke English"
Pros: "More legroom Crew was couteous"
Cons: "Poor quality food Old planes"
Cons: "They did not load one of my bag in Abu Dhabi for my interconnecting flight from Toronto to Dammam"
Pros: "The crew took care of their passengers' needs throughout the flight with plenty of food and drinks."
Cons: "My headphones or speaker did not work on my TV so I was unable to watch any movies. It was difficult to sleep as I was woken up to see if I wanted food or drink"
Pros: "Charging for devices at the seat, not too cramped."
Cons: "Out of DC, they weighed every carryon item both at check in and at the gate. I couldn’t fill my water bottle before boarding or I would have been overweight... I’ve never had an airline be so picky. And then they lost one of my bags - ironic given the precision about baggage weight."
Pros: "Same as Above"
Cons: "Same as Above"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The food and cabin confort"
Pros: "MUTTON WAS EXCELLENT"
Cons: "SAME MOVIES BOTH FLIGHTS"
Pros: "correct temprature flight crew was good food was good"
Pros: "Cabin, boarding"
Cons: "Transit through Abu Dhabi is a pain"
Cons: "I am very upset with Etihiad's service. On both ways, I had trouble with my luggage. On the way to Delhi all my bags were open and stuff was missing and now on the way back to U.S. all of my luggage was missing. I would not choose to fly Etihad again."
Pros: "Seat space"
Pros: "Every thing is perfect"
Pros: "Both of our flight were very comfortable. They gave us pillows, blankets and great food even in economy."
Cons: "The second flight took off quite a bit late but we did make up some of the time"
Pros: "Staff excellent on board Plane very high standard"
Cons: "Waiting 1.25 hrs to check in in SYD- with 10 and 12 year old children Check-in staff member unclear on passport requirements"
Pros: "The Crew was responsive and attentive."
Cons: "The On Boarding process, a bit too many checks on the weight of Carry ons (7Kg)and Laptop Bag (5Kg), which was a big inconvenience and I never experienced with any other airlines and believe me I have flown on virtually every airline. The food options were limited and the crew ran out of food choices (Veg) fast."
Cons: "Our connection from NYC was missed due to delay in leaving Abu Dhabi. The NYC connection wasn't request to wait for us, maybe five minutes would have been enough. After that, they took no care to book in a latter flight. They assigned unconfirmed tickets, which were not honored in the other terminals. I was able to get a seat in the third flight after, others were still left waiting. It took us longer to get a 1.5 hours connecting flight than to cross the Atlantic."
Pros: "Everything from crew to food"
Cons: "Having stand online to check in again/"
Pros: "I managed to find a MUCH cheaper deal through Kayak, cheaper than directly through the airline (£200 cheaper in fact!), which was a great start to the trip. I was emailed a confirmation that my booking had been accepted through the airline within minutes, and it was easy to workout how to check myself in. Then I had zero hassles on the flights, so I'm really pleased with the service. I was even lucky enough to have a whole row to myself on both of my flights from England to Australia, which on a +24hr flight can be an absolute godsend. Staff were all friendly even encouraging us to move to alternate seats given there was sufficient space. The air crafts were tidy and it was easy transitioning from each connecting flight. Absolutely no hassle at all."
Cons: "The only points were that the inflight entertainment from Manchester to Abu Dhabi was a tiny step below standard but great choice in terms of films to watch, my second flight was on an A380 so there was an obvious difference in design standard between the 2 planes making the first flight less desirable, and the food was OK at best. On one of my flights I didn't eat the heated meal, any sides and only ate some of the dessert given the flavour was quite poor. An airline could do to raise the taste bar standard."
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic Crew wss average in service"
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Bad seats, bad legroom and very cramped isles"
Cons: "I was assigned a middle seat next to a obese person. It was very unpleasant 13 hours, and the airlines could have moved one of us."
Pros: "the soft colours and comfort of the seats"
Cons: "some sort of pasta for breakfast"
Cons: "This ar line has no absolute respect for its people. It seems because it is a fight going to India, which apparently it is not an important country they can do anything. The worst gate (I do not know if this is the air line choice or not), there was no line to boarding, there was not enough seat at the gate and one of the people at the gate was insisting that travelers should sit. The crew was rude to the Indian people, however they themselves were not acting properly. The bus came to get the people from the gate to the plane in Abu Dabi was really bad."
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "Cabin crew not really sincere and work with heart"
Pros: "Food, comfort and Crew"
Cons: "The fact that they lost my baggage, together with the baggage of about 20 other people. This unfortunately seems to be the norm rather than the exception......."
Cons: "my suitcase plastic zipper was opened by someone in the ground staff at IGI Delhi and a few items were stolen. something needs to be done about this because I am sure other passengers are losing a lot more"
Pros: "The service was great."
Cons: "The food was not up to the standard"
Cons: "No person travelling from New York received their luggage in New Delhi. After a frustrating wait in Abu Dhabi terminus for 24 hours to be subjected to another wait & search for luggage & eventually fill the displaced luggage forms was quite an ordeal. The only silver lining was that the luggage was eventually sent home after 72 hours. NEVER EVER RECOMMEND ETIHAD FOR TRAVELLING"
Pros: "The micro-suites in business class provided ample room and privacy for a good, long sleep. The 11 hour flight passed by so quickly."
Cons: "1 piece of luggage was missing from flight EY218 on 18 June 2016. Wheel of one luggage was broken when the luggage was received at the belt after flight EY 218 landed at New Delhi"
Cons: "16 hours flights is too tough for me."
Pros: "Polite staff."
Cons: "The seats were a little tight with not much space to avoid touching your neighbor. It really made the 13 hour flight uncomfortable to sleep. On a shorter flight it wouldn't have been as big of an issue but this overnight trip it was rough."
Cons: "I booked flight for my parents from Kayak for the first time. The confirmation number was: KAYAK Booking Reference KE40651 British Airways Record Locator 3IMN38 Booking Date Jan 24, 2021 So British airways cancelled the flight may days before the flight date and they notified Kayak but Kayak sent me no notification. At the time of check in we found that the flight was cancelled. It was such a hassle. I called kayak to rebook frantically since it was very important to travel right away. Your customer service was pathetic. I was told to cancel my british airways reservation and then I have to wait 24 hours for another department to call me to talk to me about rebooking choices. There was no concern from your customer service that since u are at fault so make correction for it right away by rebooking it. You guys didnt inform us for cancellation of the flight that happened days before the flight. I didnt like what Kayak rep was telling me and called British airways again to see if they would do something. They then were able to rebook me the following day with 2 stops instead of one stop which I had booked. So my parents took the flight with one day delay with extra stops. I had such a horrible experience with Kayak. I will never rebook from Kayak again."
Pros: "Crew was super polite and attentive. New modern equipment."
Cons: "The EROSNOW channel was very heavily cut and censored, I feel like I still need to watch those movies again somewhere to understand what happened."
Pros: "the crew on the flight were simply amazing! Kind, caring, 5*"
Cons: "There was questionable social distancing at check-in and most definitely none from the arrival at the departure gate to using the suttles to get to the plane and boarding. While I appreciate the ever-evolving challenges the current global situation are brining, this was a failure on your behalf. Istanbul international airport = disappointment and a letdown."
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: "It was absolutely on time. Great!"
Cons: "The meal is always too spicy and for more south Asian style. I prefer more European meal."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "The way they collect trash in the plane after serving food looked a little primitive. The crew walks around without trash bags and picks up passengers' trash and just stacks them on their arms or on their cart. I have traveled with BA many times in the past 40 yrs, and i don't remember this scene. Either I was not paying attention, or this is the new policy???!!"
Cons: "Old plane"
Pros: "It was just on time."
Cons: "The seats are very small hence not comfortable at all."
Pros: "Not much, except that I got to Nashville."
Cons: "I was told that boarding was about to stop, and that the doors would close any minute. As it turned out, this did not happen for at least 30 minutes. I was among the first on board, and really worried I'd miss the flight. The bathroom sink was out of order, no way to wash hands, a health hazard!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food was horrible"
Cons: "The staff at the check in at the front desk were not helpful. Some personnel do not even have the training how to handle the passengers who have already checked in and have the boarding pass with them and even not polite."
Cons: "Despite a 5 hour layover for our connection, one of our checked bags was left in London by British Airlines. Other bags made it. Makes no sense."
Pros: "Old airplane very outdated entertainments system and seats are very narrow ."
Cons: "Old airplane very outdated entertainments system and seats are very narrow ."
Cons: "Th business class seats were more like economy class without the center seat. Cabin crew always seem disorganized."
Cons: "Bad customer experience"
Pros: "Price and prompt and timely boarding."
Cons: "Old airplane, old entertainment system, below average food on the LHR-IAH leg and charging for food and drinks for the IST-LHR leg which is over 3 hrs."

Cons: "The business class seats are economy class seats with the middle seat blocked, the leg space are same as economy."
Pros: "Good crew and efficient service."
Cons: "Not the most comfortable business class seats. Had a hard time getting any sleep."
Cons: "paying over £200 for a one way 3 hour ticket and having to buy food on the plane."
Pros: "Dinner was quite good. And yes, the seats were comfortable. But the aircraft was probably from the 90's"
Cons: "Entertainment system was really archaic ... No USB slot to charge phones ... Breakfast was ok ok ... not good."
Pros: "Sort of on time"
Cons: "Buy on board menu poor Both sandwiches contained cheese Of the meat dishes all except one containing pork No indication of halal dishes Also several nut dishes The of the four confectionary offerings, three contained chocolate"
Pros: "I liked the service"
Pros: "Friendly staff. The food was Ok. The flight was on time."
Cons: "People kept bumping into my shoulder but i guess there isn't much that can be done about it."
Pros: "crew was nice and friendly food was good bit old aircraft so little bit less comfortable"
Cons: "Checked-in baggage got mishandled and haven't got any response from British airlines after 24 hrs of complain filed. and on top of it their website is not working can't update my contact details and also cant track status of my complain."
Pros: "All was easy"
Cons: "It wasn't super comfortable"
Pros: "Great crew members and boarding was immaculate."
Cons: "Good flight, however I could see that not only my children were bored after an hour into the flight. Entertainment would be beneficial for BA to introduce asap."
Cons: "Flight was delayed after arrival at Heathrow for 4 hours Baggage lost did not get it even after the end of the trip There wasn’t much of help or effort from the airlines to track baggage Even my 8 year old son said ... never board British airways"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable again."
Cons: "Crew seemed to be a little more aggressive and rude than last flight from BA."
Cons: "British Airways"
Cons: "A lot of flights park away from the terminal and you board a bus to get to/from the plane. No power outlets at seats."
Pros: "Left and arrived on time! Comfortable aircraft"
Pros: "All was good"
Cons: "The lack of service"
Pros: "The crew and assistants were excelent"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and they have wo"
Pros: "The airplane was new"
Cons: "Check in Crew and service Unqualified personnel is running the operation I suggest they get some training g from Turkish airlines"
Cons: "Flight was operated by Qatar Airways due to strike of some BA union. Aircraft was old and seats not very comfortable. Boarding process was a bit haphazard. (No row-by-row boarding). Even though it was an international flight, there was just a plain sandwich for food."
Cons: "I didn't like the food, I couldn't eat."
Pros: "Crew was very good and very attentive. Dinner was of good quality for airline food. Both options sounded good and the chicken curry was excelent. Flight took off late beacuse the luggage of passengers who did not make the flight had to be removed, but managed to arrive only a few minutes late."
Cons: "It was just too cramped. It didn't help the the gentleman sitting next to me was large enough to be spilling over into my seat. The seats were not very comfortable either. The movie selection was a bit disappointing compared to Iberia Airways, and the screen quality was not so great. I also didn't see usb ports to charge portable elctronics, which was disapointing."
Pros: "They tried to help me in person by making a phone call to the security gate."
Cons: "Despite the call to security (I guess it was to the security gate? Not sure) it seemed standard the way they spoke, not as if anyone seemed empathetic to my situation as I am a graduate student and was in dire need of returning to Dublin, Ireland for work the following morning. I have had a different experience with different British Airways representatives. The customer service on the phone seemed good, but in person, it just felt like robots following policy unfortunately. I spent $150 for a roundtrip flight and could not use my "Return" portion of my ticket. I arrived to the security gate and I could not be let in. My flight was even delayed which should have allowed me time to scan through security but it did not. My phone is temporarily unavailable as it is in the shop for repair, while I navigate a foreign country without the use of maps or access to email so easily. I checked my email at a random hotel in London for 1.5 hours, and 30 mins after I left, apparently an email was sent by BA to me, alerting me that I could check-in my luggage, instead of having to take it on-board as carry-on. All these details would have been nice to know a little more ahead of time. I wish I could be refunded for my flight, as that was the last flight of the evening, and I ended up having to go to Air Lingus to pay nearly 300 pounds to get on their last flight back to Dublin. As a graduate student, working on my thesis and fulfilling a job here in Ireland as the final leg of my Master's degree, any money saved is a help. Forfeiting half my ticket, and purchasing a new one twice the price of my original was not something I was expecting. I was an emotional wreck getting on-board my other airline's flight. Just not a positive experience that resonated with me overall :( I wish I had more positive insight to share, especially on social media or Yelp about my experience to London and back with BA. Plane was small, and complimentary drinks were not served as every flight I have ever been on in 30 years, and that is several several dozen, have ALWAYS given at least a drink, even if they didn't have peanuts/pretzels. Pretty disappointing.."
Pros: "The airplane comfort."
Cons: "I was forced to leave my power bank to the staff at the airport without any notification that I am not allowed to have it in my hand bag not even in my suitcase. That was rude and impolite. I'm so disappointed. As a passenger I have my rights and obligations, I'm aware of that! Yes, I would keep all the rules if knew about them. Now it seems that I didn't have any right in that time. I'll proceed with my complain at next level."
Cons: "No entertainment! While you have to check in your laptop and iPad!"
Cons: "As like always late"
Pros: "The speed of bouncing back from the computer system mishap"
Cons: "The lack of food. Little service on board. Nothing free. Check in process was chaos and people were rude."
Cons: "Wait for shower was more than one hour - really do you expect people with 10 hours to cone to lounge Food was minimal for breakfast and should take cue from their boston lounge"
Cons: "Long flight, no laptop, no entertainment on the flight, buying your own food and drink, what can be worst that this?"
Cons: "To summarize it, the manager at the counter told me: you should have booked with Turkish airlines instead of us. This would be my first and last time with British airways."
Pros: "Good food and efficient service"
Cons: "Noisy plane made the entertainment system less audible"
Cons: "Seat was very uncomfortable and in-flight entertainment screen did not function properly"
Cons: "Seat pitch"

Cons: "Seat comfort was awful. No seat pocket to put even a small bottle of water or a few personal items."
Pros: "Staff broke my kids stroller"
Cons: "No blankets on the flight no headphones no bassiinets for little babies"
Cons: "I'm only 5'4" and felt like a stuffed sausage in those seats. I've never experienced such little leg room and I don't know how taller people even sit in those seats. 90% of the screens were not working at all and were burning hot to touch. Also, what's up with the spray they use along as they walk along the overhead storage bins (insecticide?). We all had to cover our nose/mouths as they walked by. Will completely avoid FlyDubai for any future flights."
Pros: "I like overall, excellent service, entertainment etc.I would be flying next time with emirates."
Cons: "Nothing I can say.It meets my satisfaction."
Pros: "I did not realize the flight was a Fly Dubai plane until I got to the airport. I intentionally bought Emirates Airline ticket so that I did not have to go Fly Dubai. Fly Dubai just plain sucks."
Cons: "Make it clear this is a Fly Dubai flight and not Emirates. I feel deceived and cheated."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Crew members did not pick up trash in a timely manner. The seat was really uncomfortable. None of the tv monitors on the right side of the plane worked. They only worked on the left side of the plane."
Cons: "The crew are extremely rude"
Cons: "boarding was not good, all times using buses. people inter plant from back entrance and front entrance and they meet at middle of plane with a lot of delay."
Pros: "We were pleasantly surprised at the roominess of the aircraft. We went expecting cramped spaces, but this was comfortable, even for a nearly 7 hour flight."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "Very pleasant crew"
Cons: "No leg spaces even for children. You can’t get even one glass of water for free. Pay or die."
Pros: "Helpfulness of checkin staff, as I was running late due to a traffic accident."
Pros: "The best thing for fly dubai in kuwait is t have a standalone terminal."
Cons: "Late flight!"
Pros: "Service everything"
Cons: "Many people on board were watching videos on their mobile phones without headphones. It was really annoying and hard to sleep."
Pros: "Good airline for a 3 hour journey...value for money."
Cons: "Most of the display units across the flight did not work properly."
Pros: "Nothing much. Flight was delayed and no apology was given."
Cons: "The food situation was weird. Only some passengers were given food. Also I didn't see any selection of movies."
Pros: "Flydubai does a great job overall. Food pre-ordered was decent--they've improved things."
Cons: "The little kid behind me who kept kicking the seat back."
Pros: "We got to sit in the front"
Cons: "The flight was delayed more than two hours and there were no TVs on the plane"
Cons: "Plane delay due to technical problem. Plane brand new, A/C system problem, apparently never got completely fixed, since cruised at 25K ft only. Food was potatoes + potatoes instead of chicken+beef preordered online."
Cons: "Still stranded in airport!!! Weather condition is fair and all other flights left and only Fly Dubai delays without explanation"
Cons: "I booked tickets business and the charges for business but when we send my it not says business it’s looks economy So I canceled the booking"
Pros: "Everything but"
Cons: "Nothing except comfortable pillow to rest your neck is needed"
Cons: "the check in and boarding took almost 2 hours of waiting in line... the flight itself, you had to pay for everything including water... nothing was included... and it was an extremely rough flight... I thought the pilot was going to crash twice once when we started our decent and once when we landed"
Pros: "There on time"
Cons: "Small space seats. Charge for everything even water sat on bus on tramas for half hour before boarding. Not good for 6 hr flight."
Pros: "crew outfits"
Cons: "no entertainment, no food, delays, terrible dubai terminal for 8+ hours- you certainly do not get what you pay for."
Cons: "The crew was incredibly rude. One flight attendant yelled at me to take my seat even after i told him the seat was wet. He insisted the plane didn't come from anywhere so it could not be wet. I showed him how it was so wet that it soaked my pants and told him it smelled like beer. He seemed annoyed i was bothering him and said he would replace the seat cushion. It took ten minutes before he replaced the cushion. When he did he threw it over the seatbelt preventing me from bucking up. I told him the arm rest and side of the plane were sticky from whatever had spilled. He ignored me and walked away. Another attendant came by and told me to buckle up before landing. I explained the situation that I did not have access to the belt to her for the second time and she rudely told me to move my seat. When I requested a new seat before the flight the first attendant told me no that was the seat I had paid for. Ignoring the fact that I had also paid for a dry seat. Now when the flight is landing my safety suddenly became a priority. Its safer to say I will not be recommending this airline."
Pros: "Good for an LCC."
Cons: "Termiinal 2 at Dubai is very overcrowded. As I bought this flight as part of an Emirates ticket, it would have been nice if a meal would have been included."
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "- flight late one hour. - A/C of the plane was too warm. - food too poor and I don’t have a problem with the payment. - cabin crew not helpful at all."
Pros: "The service was great, punctual, helpful."
Cons: "Must pay for in flight entertainment...screen also did not work even when offered to pay 11 us to watch movies"
Pros: "everything went fine"
Cons: "food should be included"
Pros: "40 me on the flight knowing that that my connecting flight was cancelled stayed in Dubai for a day and a half without anyone helping me because I did not fly with Emirates to Alexandria horrible service customer service no one held I would never fly with this company ever again. Martha milagros Rivera"
Cons: "They did not give us food or drink, , They were selling everything even water."
Cons: "The best service"
Pros: "On Time Arrival although we experienced a late departure"
Cons: "Passive agressive crew Entertainment system did not work and the screens do not turn off which made sleep impossible and the glare was a great discomfort when the lights dimmed."
Pros: "Accuracy and courtesy"
Pros: "Amazing service and crew"
Pros: "Staff was great, food and drinks were good,"
Pros: "I suppose the price."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing was provided. For a 5 hour flight everything cost, including the water ($2). I bought a terrible, nearly inedible, sandwich for $6. No entertainment. No food or drink unless you paid. And the exit row seats went empty the entire flight because, unlike most other airlines, they didn't fill them when no one paid the extra $100 to buy the increased leg room, they wouldn't let anyone move there. Noting pleasant about the experience. And it was esp. galling after flying 12 hours on Emirates, which was fantastic in every way!"
Cons: "I had an emergency and wanted to delay my flight, but they asked me to pay for a penalty that was almost the tickets prices."
Pros: "I got to my destination on time."
Cons: "The cramped, uncomfortable seats. The cold, non-engaged staff."
Pros: "Comfort, professionalism, food"
Cons: "While passengers were clearly notified about new lap top/ tablet ban, many passengers appeared to disregard and still showed up with these items as carry on in Dubai? All the boxing and shrink wrapping apparently caused a 1.5 hour boarding delay, which isn"t fair to those who follow instructions. Even the pilot blamed American government? Why can"t people listen.? This rule was well publicized in media."
Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable"
Pros: "The crews were great on both legs of the flight. Seating was not too bad. When boarding finally started, it was fast."
Cons: "Both of my flights were delayed, and in both situations no one would tell anyone what was going on. Leaving passengers in the dark about their travels is a terrible experience."
Pros: "Option to buy food. 30 mins only from Dubai to Doha"
Cons: "Delay in take off by about 30 mins. Ground services in Dubai sucks and you are treated like low/no class passengers if you fly with other airlines apart from emirates. Transport bus from Term 3 to Term 2 via Term 1 make extra stops as per driver pleases. This would be last time I go via Dubai on other airlines non Emirates. Toilets in Term 2 also sucks and would rather go on the plane...."
Pros: "It was cheap"
Cons: "The cabin was swealtering while we were waiting to take off for an hour. No explanation as to why there was a delay. No complementary drinks, even in that heat. At least for short flight the entertainment was free."
Pros: "La vista del cielo"
Cons: "No se por q fuimos a Dubai sin aviso creo q e una falta súper grabe 3 horas por “gasolina” creo que es una falta de respeto. Pude escoger otra aerolínea"
Pros: "Liked the blanket, the nice leather seats. I enjoyed the chicken actually and the breakfast roll."
Cons: "This is something that has happened to me on every flight/airline I have taken to India. I am sat next to some slightly older Indian nationals who I find inconsiderate. This again happened on this flight, the 'gent' next to me continually elbowed his way into my space, kicked me, fidgeted, pushed against me continually. when I asked him to stop kicking me and to move his feet back to under the seat in front of me, he tried to silence me as if I shouldn't be talking to him like that or that I had no right to be annoyed. I was in pain, couldn't sleep. He encroached into my space so that he could give his wife lots of space. Selfish. I do feel it's a cultural thing. It doesn't happen to me when I fly to other destinations and travel economy. I didn't feel safe at the end of the flight when it was taxing to the bay. Passengers turned on their phones the minute we hit the tarmac and were opening the overhead lockers and left them open even the plane was still moving at speed. I thought things were going to come crashing out. It just doens't feel save and controllled when fellow passengers do not follow instructions. I worry what would happen if there was an emergency."
Cons: "Well to make it short, I am about 5'7" and still felt the seats were very closely placed and for long trips it is awfully uncomfortable. The airplanes are very old!!"
Pros: "Crew was magnificent"
Cons: "Food awful seats tiny check in procedure is confusing"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, terrible meal, rude service . 15 euro boarding passes . Charges money for everything. Airline employees look like "gai"( former Soviet police) employees, try to find reason to charge you money"
Pros: "Boarding was not extremely painful, even though there were three security checkpoints to go through between the first flight and this flight."
Cons: "This was the dirtiest airplane I have ever been on. Halfway through the flight, the bathrooms were unusable. The water was not draining in the sink, there was no toilet paper, and the garbage bin was overflown. The flight attendants were unfriendly. There is not enough space provided for writing."
Cons: "The seats were very cramped and lopsided which made for a very uncomfortable flight. The flight was completely packed and upon landing we were kept on the plane for an additional 45 minutes which made people very irritable. The food quality was not good."
Cons: "My flight was overbooked so I was put on a flight to Almaty then Delhi and now my luggage is lost. I will never fly with Ukraine Intl. Airlines again."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled without firther notifications. I called UIF office 7 times and finally one of the reps was able to give me full information and reschedule my flight with other airlanes. In the airport I saw a bunch of people who came for their flight... which was cancelled. I received email about cancellation after I spoke with UIF reps. Never will reccomend or use this airline again"
Pros: "I liked receiving an extra food as we stuck on plan for extra 2 hours."
Cons: "As we had to wait 50 passengers from another flight we have to stay on plane for extra 2 hours and it’s was terrible experience"
Pros: "Pleasant flight"
Cons: "Could not understand the English announcements. Need better audio quality or better grasp of English without foreign accent. Would have appreciated complimentary coffee and tea."
Pros: "Flying economy it was very satisfying. Clean airplane, friendly staff, smooth flight."
Cons: "the ground services in Vienna weren't excellent as understatement. The transit in Borispol airport was so slow that we almost missed the flight. One of our suitcases didn't arrive with the flight to Tel Aviv and was delivered 2 days later"
Pros: "the flight from kiev to delhi was good"
Cons: "we had a horrible wait inside the airplane it was very hot and no water was given to the passengers after the flight was delayed twice!"
Pros: "Crew members were very nice and professional"
Cons: "Seats, food, drink option( I had to pay for a coke), entertainment system all these were terrible. Plus we're delayed 7 hours on top of 3 hours layover it was just a bad airline company"
Pros: "Crew s"
Cons: "Absent of entertainment on board!"
Cons: "There was a very problematic passenger on the flight that caused a delay of almost one hour. The stewardess threatened to kick him out but didn´t, she lost all credibility and he therefor continued to act out not only before the flight but during. We were concerned about our safety this man screaming throughout the flight was a liability. The fact that armed men escorted him off the plan did little to assuage our dissatisfaction with the way the situation was handled."
Cons: "One of the worst flights of my life. It lasted 10 hours and the plane had no in-flight entertainment system. The plane is old and very uncomfortable. 5 babies cried THE WHOLE FLIGHT and neither the parents (impolite people, of course) nor the flight attendents did anything about it. Food was terrible, service is terrible and you have to pay for a SODA and for printing your boarding pass. Disgusting airline. I will never fly this again. And it wasnt cheap, just in case you are wondering."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Crew was somehow nice ... most of the time just following Protocol"
Cons: "Where do we start : old airplane .. no space between seats Squished like an animal in. Cage to be delivered .. horrible ! The airplane Ukarainian uses Should not be used for inter contnetablang haul flights! Where s the Avaiation Commison ! Drinks are to pay ! 3 euros every time pull credit out ! Annoying ! The entrertainmet system : one shitty TV for the whole airplane ! Back to 1980! USSR style !"
Pros: "I liked new registration procedures.It saves my time and makes and makes the whole process faster and smoother"
Pros: "No problems or delays. Crew was professional a nod the flight was smooth."
Cons: "Boarding are the gate was a big disorganized. Everything Walsh waa just fine."
Cons: "When I came for check in, it came out my baggage is not included into ticket price. There was no indication on my ticket about the baggage and it was written in the rules I may take 21 or 23 kg bag. But airline agent told this rule does not apply and I had to inquire at the airline about the details. It looks strange, I have to buy ticket and then ask what I have actually bought ."
Pros: "apart from the fact that I got from point A to point B, there was nothing redeemable or positive about this experience."
Cons: "a cup of water. that's all."
Cons: "Staff was rude also they selling warm beer for 5$!! I think it was last time with UIA"
Pros: "Price was ok"
Cons: "Our ticket was booked with checked in luggage going to our destination but no checked luggage on return. This was not mentioned when we were booking or we would have gone with a more expensive airline. It turned out costing the same by the time we added in the luggage. Food is offered but you must pay."
Cons: "wasn't worth the money. everything on the flight besides water was NOT included and you were asked to pay extra money for a cup of juice or coffee. the chairs weren't comfortable at all and very dense. the airplane was old and not in a good condition. that will absolutely be my last flight with this company. I'm very disappointed."
Pros: "Everything was OK. Check in was smooth and except for the absence of jetways, it was OK."
Cons: "This flight was horrible"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly. One flight attendant helped to relocate me to another aisle seat that could recline. The seat was more comfortable than I thought it would be for a 10 hour flight."
Cons: "There was. I vegetarian option on board. I thought I had ordered a vegetarian meal, but was told I hadn't. There were no individual screens to watch movies or plugs to charge electronic devices. Also, there wasn't anyone at the gate until it was time to board to discuss seating changes and then I was told it wasn't possible but maybe I could buy a "comfort seat," which the gate agent didn't know if there were any or how much they are. For my transatlantic flight that meant 55 euro for the bulk head. That's basic info the gate agent should have known."
Pros: "It arrived on time"
Cons: "The smell in the toillet"
Pros: "they kept on time"
Cons: "we were crowded like herrings."
Cons: "Had to wait to disembark"
Pros: "I like that the flight left on time."

Pros: "My seat mate"
Cons: "Rude staff. Old aircraft. Non-operational toilets on 10 hr flight. Need I say more?"
Pros: "Got to NY safe. Crew was fine. Price"
Cons: "Old plane, no seat specific entertainment. Restless travellers, pacing back and forth ( from a specific background unfortunately)"
Pros: "Flight attendants spoke good English and they readily helped if there was problems,."
Cons: "It was very hot in the plane, there was no entertainment and they didn't let me take my carry on with me, even tho my itinerary said I could, they said the plane was to full,.."
Pros: "2 luggage free."
Cons: "Old and crowded planes. To get a Coke you must pay"
Pros: "Helpful staff. On time. Kiev airport a convenient size and efficient."
Cons: "Nothing could be faulted."
Cons: "Crew is unbelievably mean. They are there to make people angry, I thought I was saving some money buy forget it. Never ever in my life I would step into that airlines again. And I am not even talking about 12 hours delay.."
Pros: "good was only one - we landed safety."
Cons: "poor airconditioning. it almost did not work tea and coffee onboard for 2euros they did not load my luggage!!! and it was my second time with Ukraine Intl Airlines when the forget to load my luggage. pity, i did not have a chance to choose another airlines. all the time they have very special surprises for their customers."
Cons: "bad food .. wasnt enough for all pasangers i was left without it .. 5 hours delay"
Pros: "We were served drinks in paper cups! No plastic. Attendant said credit card machine did not work but then used it for others. Tried to overcharge by 12 euro and did not bring back change."
Cons: "Plane was too small for so many passengers. I asked for window seat and got middle! Airline people should speak better English as job requirement."
Pros: "Everything was right at scheduled time. Plane looked new and nice. Cabin crew was very polite and looked gorgeous!"
Cons: "You can get for "free" only a glass of water. Sandwiches, juices, soda, coffee etc. are for purchase only. It was a short flight, but UIA is not a low cost airline to charge for food."
Pros: "Cheap prices- round trip to Istanbul in the summer was only $555-how can you possibly beat that? Layover in Kiev's modern new airport terminal was quick and easy."
Cons: "Their 767-300ERs are terribly antiquated. First of all, their plane has an 8 abreast seating arrangement when most airlines have 7-so you can imagine on a 10 hour flight how cramped."
Cons: "NEVER HAPPENED. READ ABOVE."
Cons: "Service is really horrible, they only have water and some juices if you want cola you have to pay 3 euro... they didn't have enough blankets, restrooms were dirty, they didn't care. I'll never ever buy ticket on Ukraine airlines, even Azerbaijan airlines are batter."
Cons: "Aggressively slow boarding with no opportunity to sit down"
