Top tips for finding a cheap flight

  • India is a vast and ancient country that is served by several international hubs in the major cities of Delhi (DEL) in the north, Mumbai (BOM) in the west, Kolkata (CCU) in the east and Chennai (MAA) in the south. Other major international airports serve the cities of Hyderabad (HYD) and Bengaluru (Bangalore) (BLR).
  • If you are planning a flight from the US to India, you should be aware that US citizens need a visa to enter the country. The standard tourist visa is good for multiple entries, valid for a year from the date of issue and allows you to stay for up to 180 days.
  • If you wish to visit Puducherry, Madurai or Chennai in the state of Tamil Nadu, you can either fly into Mumbai and get a connecting flight south or consider flying from Jaffna (Sri Lanka), which is actually closer to Tamil Nadu and will save you travel time.
  • If you wish to explore the banks of the Ganges River, flying to New Delhi is a good starting point. From there you can take a train, bus or car to Varanasi, Allahabad and Patra. However, catching the ferry down the famous river can’t be beat.
  • Apart from its numerous temples and holy sites, India is also well known for its festivals which attract many visitors from all over the world. You can book a flight in the fall and witness Diwali, the Festival of Lights, watch the burning of the effigies at Dussehra festival in October or take a flight in March and enjoy Holi, The Festival of Colors.

Pros: "Beautiful airplane with an incredibly hospitable staff. Food was delicious, seats were spacious and comfortable. Couldn’t ask for a better 14-hour flight!"

Pros: "I really enjoyed the flight, which was almost 15 hours long. I give an overall 4 star review for this flight. The boarding process was pretty organized (without including the ignorant passengers who can't read their zone numbers, haha) because they called us up group by group, in a speedy process. Even inside, the cabin crew welcomed us aboard and showed us where our seats are. This leads me to my 5-star rating of the service. Very warm, friendly, and generally helpful cabin crew Qatar Airways has. They fulfilled all my needs even if they had to go out of their way. As for entertainment, I was very surprised at how many great movies they have! Especially the new ones! I would not be bored again with this selection. Food was okay to be honest. It was a hot meal that satisfied my hunger and tasted good, but maybe it's just me and airplane food. Doesn't taste right for me. And to be honest, I was cramped. Not even me but many other passengers felt like the seats were too small. Overall, Good experience!"

Pros: "Boarding from Doha and service in doha."
Cons: "ASSISTANCE IN DELHI..my parents did not even get wheel chair after long tiring journey..they were keep trying for help and did not get any help..I am asking is this the airline duty or not to give assistance who is in need.even did not get the porter to carry the heavy luggage.is anyone responsible for that? what is the use of this nonsense servey?"

Pros: "Boarding, the welcome on board, the food choice and quality were all excellent. The seat was comfortable as I didn't want to sleep. The entertainment screen was big and clear, and the choice of films was good. The member of flight crew, a Latvian lady, who looked after me onboard was a real star, very efficient but still had time to chat."
Cons: "The choice of films and tv programmes, was good, but before watching each one i chose, I had to endure a couple off minutes of an advert- the same one every time."

Cons: "Unannounced delays. Waited in a line, then another one. Probably just different security protocol than I'm used to."

Pros: "Seats are very much smaller in economy. Hotel accommodation was no where close to good in comparison to Emirates or Thai."
Cons: "ANAZING flight staff! Friendly and courteous!!!! Loved them on all four flights!!!!"

Cons: "Our stewardess was not the friendliest!"

Cons: "Too much nonsense with carry on and check in language. I paid for my seat but they changed it for better balance of the plain. Really I weigh 165 lbs. Once the plane reaches altitude they let me take my seat. However the plane was barely occupied and somebody with closer and took my seat."

Cons: "The food is good k"

Pros: "Amazing - they had a full dinner for a 9:55pm flight, with real silverware, complementary alcohol, for economy passengers! Crew extremely professional and efficient."

Pros: "The entertainment was good"
Cons: "The food on the 2nd flight was bad"

Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "AC was not turned on until flight was up in air. That means for 30 minutes passengers were sweating sitting in a suffocating cabin. Crew refused to give Green Tea, saying only available in business class Inflight screen size was very small ...5-6 inches only"

Pros: "Crew was great. Phenomenal even."
Cons: "Economy seating, so hard to complain, I got what I paid for, but 1-2” more between seats would have kept my knees out of the lady’s back in the seat in front of me..."

Cons: "Actually making the flight"

Cons: "Movies , Wi-Fi , Live Shows"

Cons: "On time"

Pros: "Crew was very nice and attentive"
Cons: "Leg room on my first flight (longest leg of the trip) was not much and when the person in front of me leaned their chair back, my knees were touching the chair."

Pros: "Food was good. Crew was kind and gracious."
Cons: "Seats were extremely cramped. Once the person in the front reclined their seat it was very difficult to get out of the seat. Also better guidance is needed during boarding. Finally, my hand carry was checked 4 times by 4 different people, which means your staff doesn’t trust their own colleagues."

Pros: "Everyone was friendly, pleasant and very helpful. Upon arrival in Delhi our suitcase handle was broken."

Pros: "Great staff and air flight attendants"

Pros: "They have a policy of letting kids under 5 board early which was a boon to us! The veggie pasta was really delicious."
Cons: "The delay to fly was the only issue"

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Food was horribly salty. I got the middle seat between 2 men. One of the attendant s was taunting most of the people who asked him for anything."

Cons: "Despite listing items desired for breakfast per seat assignment, flight attendant still got it wrong."

Pros: "A very friendly and attentive crew and a decent meal. Comfort is still iffy in coach but better than most American airlines. Good selection of movies to pass the time."
Cons: "Seats in coach are cramped and some have an electrical box under the seat in front of you, so there is no room for your legs or carry on bag. Bathrooms keep getting smaller to jam in more seats."

Pros: "The movies were good, the food was good. Servers were kind and helpful. Clean and overall positive flight."
Cons: "Several delays and gate changes."

Cons: "The way the movies, needed extra parts. No touch screen"

Cons: "I was sitting on seat # 25 A : The distance between the seats in rows # 24 and # 25 was about 6 Inches less than between the other seat rows in front of us and across the isle thus making it VERY uncomfortable when the seat in front was in the sleeping condition. Peter M. Endriss"

Pros: "The line for screening for initial security at Ben Gurion was ridiculously long. Almost one hour in line before we even could be interviewed."
Cons: "Boarding and in-flight experience were excellent."

Pros: "Everything except the seats."

Pros: "The flight itself was very enjoyable. The only negative aspect was that the first leg of the flight was delayed long enough that I almost missed my connecting flight and my baggage was lost."
Cons: "The real reason for the negative review is a combination of the cost of this flight, loss of my baggage and poor service after the flight. I paid nearly $4,500 for an economy ticket from New York to New Delhi. The first leg of the flight, from New York to Zurich was delayed long enough that I made my connecting flight to Delhi within seconds of them closing the gate and as a result my baggage was lost. Once I got to Delhi I had to take a connecting flight to Goa and then drive an hour to my destination, where I was attending a good friend's wedding. All of my baggage was lost during transit by the airline, and unfortunately they never delivered by baggage to my hotel...so I was without formal clothes and normal clothes for the wedding for 4 days. The customer service line was no help, and the airline refused to deliver the baggage to me...the closest they would bring it was the Goa airport which was an hour and a half away."

Pros: "The flight was delayed from Newark to Zurich but they were able to rearrange my connecting flight before landing. The Swiss staff were very courteous and amicable. The food was also tasty."

Pros: "Courteous Service and excellent hospitality"

Pros: "Good staff, good boarding, good announcements"

Pros: "Clean, modern plane, friendly and attentive crew"

Cons: "My luggage was lost. I had to wait in line forever to file a report. Luckily it was sent to my hotel later that evening."

Pros: "The crew was excellent. They were very efficient and went about their duties without disturbing the passengers."

Pros: "Friendly Staff"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Best food and attention that I've had on an airline in 20 years. Really. I was telling a friend today, Swiss Air started with drinks, gave us a Parisian baguette sandwich, gave us a healthy breakfast of yoghurt warm croissant butter jam orange juice, drinks again, and several passengers surrounding me got special attention, one woman with a baby, a disabled person, and a teenager that was 6'5" was relaocated by the flight attendant without him even asking to a bulkhead seat for more comfort. You don't see this kind a attention to detail on any US flights or US airlines, so I noticed it. It was as if I was traveling back in the 70's or 80's when Airlines would compete for our dollars with their service. I mentioned to my friend that if I had a choice and Swiss Air was one of the choices, I'd choose Swiss Air over any other airline."

Pros: "Stewards are very kind and friendly unlike those in US flights."
Cons: "None."

Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable, not the leg room but they just felt a little worn down and tilting forward"

Pros: "The seats on Swiss' A330-300 are so comfortable in economy. Easy to find a good position to sleep in. Embrear from Zurich to Oslo is tighter, but food and service like in the old days! Bravo!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight attendant told me I had to keep my seat upright throughout dinner so the person behind me could eat. I wanted to sleep and couldn't do so without reclining. The seats are tight but I was in the economy plus section so I thought she should have let me recline instead of physically moving my seat upright. And for someone who cared so much about the seat at dinner no one cared about me the rest of the flight. I slept through breakfast and no one left me a tray even. Plus, I had my seat back the rest of the flight including landing which I didn't realize. Isn't it their job to ensure our seats are in upright positions in case we forget or don't realize? Just a very blasé crew."
Cons: "See above regarding the crew. It's not that big of a deal but I really thought the crew was poor. Flight was short and easy enough though."

Pros: "We liked the chocolates, the little things matter. We liked the timing of the flight."
Cons: "The seats were old and uncomfortable and the arm rests did not go all the way up."

Cons: "Seating and foot space was uncomfortable to me."

Pros: "The crew really went out of their way to accomodate and made sure I found my seat, was entertained and was comfortable throughout my flight."
Cons: "It was delayed a little."

Pros: "Fine"
Cons: "Newark airport is awful. Can't get food, can't get coffee, can't get a newspaper. I would try to avoid it."

Cons: "On my return journey I was told at check in that there were delays that would mean missing my onward journey from Zurich. I was then rerouted through Istanbul with the promise that I would be well compensated for my troubles. I was told that I would receive a certain amount for every hour I was delayed from my original arrival at end destination. Well I arrived 8 or more hours after I had originally expected (and the reason I booked with Swiss Air was because of the timing and the apparent luxury of the flight). Once I got back home and tried to pursue this amazing compensation I received some of the worst customer service ever and received 0 compensation for the experience. Very disappointed and will never fly swiss airlines again."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Passengers crowding the lane"

Pros: "Newer plane"
Cons: "I have been flying to Asia on Asian airlines and maybe I have become accustomed to flights and crews that know how to manage a long flight. For example: The crew seemed tentative and untrained. Saw the crew once between the meal at beginning and the meal at the end. I wonder where they can hide for so long on a small plane? Too many announcements by the Captain -- shut up and fly the damn plane! Do you think the crew might replenish the toilet paper on an 8 hour flight? on another note: Seat spacing is adjustable - very close seats Overall--- underwhelmed"

Cons: "I had a good seat, the plane was comfortable and the crew was nice"

Cons: "Chrap food"

Pros: "Night flight. Food is fine."

Pros: "Perfect service, on time"

Pros: "the crew members were patient , helpful. Food presentation and taste were good."

Cons: "They will not give you seat confirmation unless you pay , very annoying"

Pros: "Good enough."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything."

Pros: "Plane didn't crash."
Cons: "Boarding totally chaotic, someone was in my assigned seat, plane was very late, food was crappy, no legroom , seat and armrests uncomfortable , constant screaming babies, smelly passengers, music only came out of one speaker, music kept jumping from one song to another and then back !"

Cons: "Better organized boarding"

Pros: "Excellent"

Cons: "Horrible"

Cons: "The Soviet Union wants its airline back. This was perhaps the RUDEST airline experience I've ever experienced. I was at Frankfurt (FRA) airport waiting to board Air Moldova Flight 864 to Chisinau (KIV). Due to a delay caused by Frankfurt security (and no fault of my own), I was delayed in reaching the gate. Since it was past my boarding time, I grabbed my bags from the conveyor belt once past security without having time to repack. I arrived at the gate and the extremely rude Air Moldova gate agent on duty yelled at me and demanded that I give her my boarding pass. When I told her I needed to pack, she yelled that there was “no time for that”. When I searched for my pass, she again yelled and said “NOW!”. When I told her that it was not my fault that I arrived late since there was a delay at security, she said “Not my problem!”. After she checked my boarding pass, I tried to repack and she again yelled “There is no time. Go to the bus NOW!” I once again told her that it was not my fault I got delayed and she again yelled “NOT MY PROBLEM”. In addition to rude employees, the airline is clearly in violation of safety regulations. The safety card in the back seat pocket was written in ARMENIAN – and Armenian only, thanks to the plane having been leased and Air Moldova not appropriately changing the safety cards. How did they expect people who read Romanian or Russian (the local languages) or English to understand it! On top of that, the plane was easily 20 years old or more and dirty. If they can't even keep a plane clean or have the appropriate safety cards, what else are they not maintaining. Do not fly this terrible airline!"

Cons: "Great airline"

Cons: "Tight seating"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Lufthansa is a great airline. My problem is Kayak, who sold the tickets to us."
Cons: "You, Kayak, sold me economy tickets. When I checked in online I saw it for the first time that our tickets were Economy Light. So even though we are Frequent Flyers, we payed $220 for three checkin luggages. I intend to dispute this case."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "1. There was no beverage service before the meal - that's new to me (travelled 4x around the globe, mostly with LH 2. It took 3 people to open the meal seal with the plastic knife ... 3. You need a written contact with your neighbor about the foot placement - space is so narrow, you need to take turns if you would like to come off the plane without back injuries 4. New custom: serve coffee AFTER breakfast 5. Nobody walked around with water or juice between the meals - you had to wake your neighbor since climbing over someone is no longer possible [either] 6. If you have 2 beverages on your tray and your neighbor needs to get out, you need a third person to assist (impossible to get out of your seat with 2 beverages in your hands (we tried it!) - just too narrow (even for a European Teenager) 7. It was not clearly visible who boards where. An Economy couple standing patiently in line at the Wong boarding line was sent back to the end of the long economy line - although NOBODY was in the business line"

Pros: "Hospitality"

Cons: "Our departure was severely delayed due to airport and aircraft crew errors. This meant that I missed my connecting flight in Munich, had to endure an extended lay over, board an extra flight to Budapest and endure an even more unbearable lay over there before being able to reach my final destination in Athens. I paid for a one-stop flight and have ended up having to endure a two-stop flight with extended lay overs. I feel completely cheated out of my money and overall have had a terrible experience."

She actually swore at us!! We were only able to rebook by calling the Lufthansa call centre and had to spend a very uncomfortable overnight at the airport without any certainty of when we would fly out. Lufthansa finally got us out on the same flight as booked but 24 hours later. And then, of course, they lost our luggage. Terrible overall experience."

Pros: "..."
Cons: "....."

Pros: "Check-in was easy and smooth."
Cons: "Agents at check-in desk took longer time to process passengers, even though some desks had two people helping. The web check-in line moved slower than the line with passengers who had not done online check-in. When I booked my flight via kayak, I was not given an option to select seats (this was new) . I was able to indicate my seat preference but there was no followup. When I checked in online 24 hours before my flight, the only option for seats was in the middle, which I did not want, although I I knew the flight would not be full. I was able to change seats when I checked in with the agent in the airport ."

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."

Food was terrible. The in flight entertainment was lacking entertainment. Crew members told us we needed to hold our carry on’s, on our lap then to store it under the seat because other people have bigger bags. Even though I got to the seat first and was trying to get settled in. Crew members were eating and on their cellphones in the back the majority of the time. It was hard to get a cup of water.

Cons: "Bad seats, bad legroom and very cramped isles"

Pros: "Actually there was nothing to like except for the ground crew and the flight took off on time"
Cons: "Everything was horrible. The seats are uncomfortable compared to qatar airways, lufthansa, kuwait airways. The food was amazingly horrible. The entertainment device was out of date."

Pros: "Seating and inside flight everything was good"
Cons: "My luggage was tested with 2 machines and it was shown under 23 kgs but as i went on airport it showed me 27 kgs. I couldn't return anything and i had to pay over wieght fees. It was a shock for me."

Pros: "All seats had power outlets"
Cons: "Plane was older than expected. Food/service was nothing exceptional."

Pros: "Food, In flight entertainment"
Cons: "Etihad has the most ridiculous carry on baggage policy. They have this cage within which your carry on should fit in. If it does not then you have to pay $320 to check in the bag which I was forced to pay. Never seen any airline doing such a shitty thing and overcharging. Also, I think they turned the AC off during the flight and I was fanning myself for the entire 14 hour duration of the trip. WTF??"

Pros: "Amenities package with toothpaste and brush."

Pros: "Nothing was good"
Cons: "Air hostess were very rude. Her name is Iliana , none of them have name tags on. I guess that will he the first thing any passengers would expect. Food was not served as per the menu. They gave away whay ever they wish. To ask for water we had to request 4-5 times. The air hostess Iliana was bumping constanly into us, and does not even have courtesy of apologising. Because of her I could not even sleep for a second in the plane. Iliana is very racist. When multi cultural people are around, it a common sense that we have to talk in a language which is understandable by every one. She was speaking in the local language, and messing around with the fellow passengers for a small issue. She is definitely not fit as an air hostess, if she is there as a racist. there was another air hostess who as shouting at us to book business class if we need to order individually. A kid beside me was asking for an ice cream if we had a chance of purchasing it, like we do in domestic airlines. When I was requesting for the ice cream, she mentioned it thrice to book a ticket in business class. Rude absolutely very very rudeeeee. Untolerable service.....worst really worst service. There was no blanket and ear plugs kept on my seat, I request iliana thrice for blanket and ear plugs, she was like i will give you after I serve everyone, but I never had one through out my journey. This is how Eithad has trained their air hostess to handle passengers. seriously I will never ever choose eithad."

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."

Cons: "Flight attendant could have cared less about being there. lol"

Pros: "The plane was specious but the crew needs to improve their service ."
Cons: "___"

Cons: "Etihad doesn't have a consistent baggage policy. The line manager at the checkin did not stand by the company. Not ready to give a written statement of what they told me at the check-in counter. Customers are held hostage with the inconsistent policies and what ever they relay to you, you do not have any option but abide by that or cancel the trip."

Pros: "I was pained to see so many passengers hassled at checking time by the crew. When carry luggage with same dimensions was allowed on onward journey how can it be oversized on the return journey? I was asked to refer the website for dimensions and tod that Ethihad does not use standard carry on baggage size. Some passengers were forced to buy new carry on luggage at the airport. It is pathetic service in my opinion because the airline put so many elderly passengers with no knowledge of English to a lot of heardship."

Pros: "I like the Islamic programs, nice food, nice pillow"

Pros: "Very professional but efficient."

Pros: "Loved the cabin crew, they were friendly, helpful and attentive despite a very long journey from Chicago to Islamabad."
Cons: "One piece of luggage was is banged up that there is a large dent and the handle no longer closes...unfortunately one of the best peices of luggage. Limited staff for such a filled flight, despite their best efforts service suffered. Need a seperate section for families with children. Face mask might be offered to passangers who coughed much of the journey causing concern about sharing germs in air that is already still. Food and toilet areas were smelly towards end of flight."

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"

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: "The check in agent missed to give me a tag for my hand luggage When ground crew at the gate didn't see the tag they placed it in a cage and a scale it was underweight & within dimensions, the wheel however was sticking out of the cage and for that it was $300 charge!! Let alone the humiliation.. It was pay in 5 mins or you will be booted off... I swear I found another family almost crying as they coming from a connecting flight didn't go through the check in desk and paid $1200 I have been using same handbag on airlines including etihad for 5 years without any problems ... Go figure"

Pros: "The food was ok."
Cons: "The crew at O'hare Airport had terrible customer service.. The boarding crew made everyone buy new carry-on bags as their current bags were apparently 'too tall' to fit, even though most of the passengers there had arrived from domestic flights without having any issue with their carry-on baggage. They said that either pay $300 to check-in your bag, or buy a new bag. Once everyone had bought new bags ($100 minimum) and ditched their old bags (created a huge pile in the corner of the boarding area), they didn't bother to check the new bags to see if they were now compliant... Never flying with Etihad!"

Cons: "Gate manager "Nadia" very rude and unprofessional in dealing with boarding passengers."

Pros: "The fact that we had dinner and a snack was great! The crew were fantastic!"
Cons: "It was a bit cramped but overall it was a wonderful experience"

Cons: "The least comfortable and smallest narrow business class seats ever"

Cons: "People could have helped"

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Wifi and entertainment need help"

Pros: "Great crew and service"
Cons: "It would be convenient to have phone chargers"

Cons: "The planes floor plan showed bathrooms which I avoided. But there were none at that spot so we lost out on more comfy seats."

Pros: "Very friendly"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and the pilot did an excellent job getting us there safe."
Cons: "The food they served was not the greatest"

Pros: "Soft drinks + food"

Cons: "The plane was at the gate for almost 2 hours due to the fuel tanks - apparently the engineers didn't know which tanks were refueled. Sounded a bit weird. I bill at $800 per hour - I think I should be compensated for my time."

Pros: "Our airline steward was incredible."

Pros: "The wine was good"
Cons: "Least expensive tickets. Food was the least expensive, very popr"

Pros: "Terrible food. The food will actually make you sick."
Cons: "Charge extra for food but provide food that will not make you sick."

Pros: "The food was surprisingly tasty for an airplane - it looked horrific but that’s of no importance. The airplane staff was very friendly and generous, possibly due to delays everywhere."
Cons: "Delayed takeoffs on both legs of the flight, combined with absolutely awful layout at Heathrow which made us nearly miss our connecting flight. Why do we have to go through security again in London?"

Pros: "Friendly FA, good entertainment options."
Cons: "The seat density BA has put on the 787 is ridiculous for a long haul flight. Impossible for a grown adult to get comfortable with the narrow seat pitch on this aircraft."

Cons: "I noticed that a rubber beading of a sliding part of the left wing was worn out and was waving with the wind. I feel this should be fixed immediately for our safety."

Pros: "The reclining seat in Club section was a wonderful experience"
Cons: "British food still lacks taste."

Pros: "Almost everythibg was great"
Cons: "The screen wasnt working properly"

Pros: "It's British Airways so no frills really, just a cheap flight going to New York"
Cons: "Service as a whole is nothing more than a 3 star"

Cons: "Bumpy but not BA’s fault"

Pros: "Pleasant staff, trying to put a brave face on standards they know are slipping"
Cons: "No breakfast, no snacks, tired seats, poor entertainment , dreadful food (and I LOVE airline food!)"

Cons: "Flight was okay. Did not get my bag after landing at Mumbai airport. Have to wait 24 hours to get it. Very inconvenient."

Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "11 hours wait time!!!! No lounge entrance No food!"

Pros: "My seat was comfortable, with good head and neck support."
Cons: "BA doesn't allow guitars as carry ins, unlike most every other overseas carrier. That's a major negative for me, and I've spread the word to other musicians who will avoid the company. Terrible policy."

Pros: "Choice of inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Crew couldn’t serve hot drinks, focussed on clearing trays!"

Cons: "Did not get seat I reserved. Stuck in middle seat. Very late."

Pros: "The flight staffs were awesome"
Cons: "No USB port on the plane"

Pros: "Civilized boarding process Warm welcome from crew Calming music upon boarding Ample leg room + comfortable seat Redeye amenities at seat (headphones, ear plugs etc.) Nice food/drinks selection Clean restrooms"
Cons: "nothing, everything was great!"

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "A few of us were held up on the tram. The doors were shut And they held the plane and accommodated us. For that I give 10 stars. I will always try to book British Air first"

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "The food"

Cons: "My wife didn't able to travel. She is on h4 visa and when we tried to checkin at airport staff said she can't travel because she doesn't have valod visa in her passport for us. I tried to explain to staff that her h4 visa is her us visa but didn't accept. I have no problem with uk policy but atleast britiah airways should let is know when we booked ticket that you need visa on your passport. I will never ever travel through british airways."

Pros: "The 787s are super spacious!! Economy class never felt so good."

Cons: "Paying $7000+ For a seat like this is a travesty"

Cons: "Plane was late which caused us to miss our connection and spend an extra 12 hours traveling to Gothenburg"

Pros: "Nothing to complain about. Everything excellent."

Pros: "Leg room seats"
Cons: "London transfer had to go through security again almost missed flight I'm sure some people didn't make it"

Cons: "Cramped seats. Entertainment system did not work well."

Pros: "Flights were on time, staff was courteous."
Cons: "leg space was inadequate, air conditioning was not adjustable, choice of indian movies was not very good."

Pros: "We Arrived safely. The captain explained the situations well."
Cons: "We left late and arrived late. They ran out of one of the menu items."

Cons: "Seats are too small for anybody above 5'8". My knees were hitting the back"

Pros: "Inflight entertainment with access to recent movies. Service was good."
Cons: "Fee for assigned seating. No outlets for charging electronic devices."

Pros: "The lounge services and staff at the airport."
Cons: "seats and surfaces not so clean in club world."

Pros: "Everything was organised.Didn't even waste a minute.I should say excellent service being my first trip withBA"

Cons: "The airline overbooked the flight and kicked us, along with 100 other passengers, off the flight and forced us onto a non-direct flight. They violated Passenger Rights, and every member of their staff treated us incredibly rudely. Due to their violations and illegal behavior, I am seeking legal counsel and plan to take the necessary action. I DO NOT recommend British Airways and will NEVER fly the airline again."

Pros: "The aircraft"

Pros: "British Airway's service is cordial and comfortable, which goes a long way to making the entire trip the same. Obviously they have no or little control over potholes in the air and wind turbulence."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled to arrive 2 hours before our connecting BA flight departed Heathrow. Unfortunately because of loading delays on our original flight, we arrived in Heathrow 40 minutes late. The crew said that 60 minutes is the designated minimum but we used all of the 80 minutes plus, and it airport was NOT crowded. If BA is connecting to BA, then you have a responsibility ahead of time to address this problem and keep connecting passengers from getting overly distressed in a strange airport."

Cons: "I require wheelchair assistance .. There was only one person servicing the entire group of people on the prior flight as a result it took us way longer to get to our connecting flight and we all ended up missing it. I had to spend over 12 hours in London .. Which was very uncomfortable and tiring for me considering my poor health, the previous 8 HR flight from Boston-London and the upcoming 9 hour london-Mumbai."

Pros: "Many things including the seat space and less crowded flight"
Cons: "Cost. One way close to 2000 USD"

Pros: "New planes"
Cons: "Bad food. Very few portions. Serving drinks only once and making one pick a beverage for the meal and nothing mere."
