Pros: "Amazing crew. Very attentive to passengers and genuinely nice."
Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"
Pros: "It was like flying in a Four Seasons but better."
Cons: "Boring movie selections. 80% Marvel films."
Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."
Pros: "Nothing"
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."
Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"
Pros: "The crew was super amazing and went to all extent to make our journey with infant comfortable"
Pros: "Crew was amazing and food was Delicious as compare to other airlines."
Cons: "There should be add more variety for toddler food/breakfast.As they served the same food which is for adult. Most of the time we saw Babies were not eaten the spice food....some cookies,cake,pastries etc should also be there as secondary option for choosy toddler."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."
Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."
Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Pros: "On time, fairly good food, good entertainment system."
Cons: "Very cramped seating when the flight is full. We're told to stretch our legs, but there is no place to walk or even stand."
Pros: "Staff was great"
Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."
Pros: "The crew was very polite. Being able to track flight path. Assortment of videos. Plain was very clean. Blankets, pillow, headphones, and all beverages free of charge."
Cons: "The food was not good. Not very much leg room. Did not like the 15 lbs. carry on weight limit."
Pros: "The plane had everything I could want."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the plane was late, prompting me to miss my connecting flight. These things happen, I understand, but most upsetting was the fact that Qatar Airways provided very little information to those of us missing our flights. While on the plane, when those of us with short layovers mentioned that we may be late, we were told "you'll be fine - they hold the planes for a bit." When we deboarded the plane from New York, we ere wrangled into groups depending on our destinations. Many of us assumed that we were going to be taken to our next flights as we had been told they would be waiting for us. The airline rep in charge of my group refused to tell us any information, however, only admitting after we got confrontational with her that we had missed our flights. She then offered no information about what would happen to us, telling us we'd find out when we got to the rebooking counter. Very unprofessional. I was told that I would have to wait for another 24 hours for the next flight, necessitating that I would spend the night in Qatar. I was put up in a hotel that was decent, but again that offered very little in terms of customer service. We were given an $80 meal allowance, but despite me not using it, I was nickeled and dimed in other aspects to where I ended up paying $20 to help reschedule a flight that I had missed in my destination country. The whole ordeal was a nightmare and mostly due to poor communication and very cold, almost robotic interactions with the QA staff on the ground in Doha."
Pros: "Food service was good"
Cons: "Flight was delayed leaving LAX and was about an hour late to arrive at Doha. Fortunately, despite the 45 minute window for connection, I managed to get my connecting flight to Islamabad thanks to good support from ground staff in Doha"
Cons: "Passengers in front of you slamming their seats back that crushed and spilled my food all over me. Happened 3 times!!!"
Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."
Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"
Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."
Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."
Pros: "Good legroom, friendly crew."
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Food is terrible.. why can't they offer sandwiches or bread and butter for people who don't eat Asian food"
Pros: "clean airline, modern airplanes, good food, friendly service"
Cons: "Nothing not to like. Spacing between seats is a little tight for med-tall passengers. Food service was slow. few/Infrequent additional beverage & snack visits."
Pros: "I had aisle chair on a Moscow to Doha leg"
Cons: "I asked for aisle seat on all flights. They gave me window seats except Moscow to Doha leg"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and patient. The flight departed on time."
Cons: "The plane was small and cramped. The food was mediocre and could have been more creative"
Pros: "Unfortunately..."
Cons: "...as mentioned, I don't have the pleasure of rating this flight because of the boarding delays and missing the flight. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Everything is good thank you so mach !!!!"
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."
Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"
Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."
Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"
Cons: "The food was okay. The hot wrap/calzone served first was not very tasteful. The breakfast/brunch was better. Not much to dislike overall."
Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "I didn't appreciate the fact that Qatar opened so late at the Abu Dhabi airport, nor did I appreciate that the woman who printed out my boarding pass royally screwed up and printed gate 8 , when in fact it was gate 3. That was total BS. Supposing I missed my flight due to her negligence ??"
Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"
Cons: "Arrival in Johannesburg was a nightmare due to queues at immigration - I nearly missed my connecting flight. This was not the fault of Quatar airlines but needs to be taken up with the authorities at OT Airport in Johannesburg"

I am very disappointed because they have no consideration for the traveler comfort

crew took too long to board and several people including myself missed our connecting flights

Pros: "The flight crew was excellent IAD to IST."
Cons: "The customs process takes too long to make domestic flights in time. I ended up missing my connection to Antayla because the customs line was too long, so I was re-booked for a later flight departing 7+ hours later. I think in the future kayak needs to ensure at least 2 hours for a connecting flight"
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Very helpful"
Cons: "Seating was cramped. Other travelers were not very cooperative"
Pros: "Specially food service and also boarding"
Cons: "They checked carry on again even you passed from the counter I felt very bad about this"
Pros: "The staff the staff the staff. They made the trip so enjoyable. The A330-300 aircraft was smooth and silent. Very impressed"
Cons: "The seats in business class were not as soft as they could be but very impressed overall and good value for the cost of the business class ticket"
Pros: "Great helpful staff, nice cabin layout with lots of space to sleep, excellent food, free internet, Live TV - what else could you ask for."
Cons: "There was nothing really to dislike here."
Cons: "Unreasonably late, no explanations, no apologies, 90 minute flight instead of 50 as promised."
Pros: "The plane :)"
Cons: "After a tech problem that kept the flight on the ground .. The rebooking staff were awful"
Pros: "Once we boarded, staff were attentive and service was good in business class. Food was high quality but in their effort to serve an elaborate 4-5 course meal, there was less attention on making sure people had drinks to pair with their meals."
Cons: "We were delayed for 3 hours. We were held in a the boarding area behind security for 2 hours with no seats, no water, no space, and no information. Turkish Airline representatives looked clueless and did not provide information or even look concerned. That was the worst handled delay in my over 30 years of flying all over the world on any many carriers. Once we boarded, the flight went well from there."
Pros: "The service of the crew was exceptional"
Pros: "Big plane, friendly staff, good food."
Cons: "Sometime, it gets a bit too cold."

Cons: "Movie controls not too responsive"
Pros: "Turkish Airline, great airline"
Pros: "Service, food, staff—all excellent!"

Pros: "Excellent service. Food and other amenities were excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Very disorganized the gate checking, staff ne d hospitality training . You ESP not have time for your queries and concerns . They are always in a hurry to finish talkign to you . Poor hygiene. The bathrooms are very dirty and has nomjand soap to wash your hands . Male staff in board come across unpolite. ingelt inwelcomed by the male flight attendant port side at the back.?"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "Good entertainment system with lots of options."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortably warm throughout the (long!) flight, which made it difficult to get any rest."
Cons: "We missed the flight for teasons totally outside our control. We were stuck at Borg El Arab Airport gate for over an hour and therefore missed our flight. Turkish reps weren't helpful at all and wouldn't try to find a solution for us!! We had to book new tickets with Egyptair. I don't believe we'll be flying Turkish again."
Pros: "Our flight was cancelled and they gave us direct flight back to Singapore in premium economy seats."
Cons: "This is our second experience of flights being cancelled via Turkish Airlines. Very disappointing customer care when flights get cancelled. Staff totally unprepared and untrained for such situations. We waited around for 6 hours before finding out on our own, that the flight was cancelled. The notice was not shown on the board. In all waited around at the airport for more than 10 hours before we were finally carted off to a small hotel near by at 1230am in the morning. Very little to no information given throughout the whole process, stranded with parched throats, no luggage, clean clothes or toothbrush."
Pros: "Outstanding service Excellent food Adequate entertainment Seat recline was good for economy"
Cons: "For a long flight (8+ hours) legroom on this Airbus was quite cramped Again poor boarding announcements resulted in very chaotic boarding process"
Pros: "Food and pleasant service."
Pros: "Food is ok"
Cons: "When you call for steward/stewardess took so long before they come"
Pros: "The steward went out of his way to accommodate my special dietary request"
Pros: "The food was the best I've had on an airplane and the in flight entertainment had an enormous selection. Flight staff and their service were amazing. I've flown all over and have never taken Turkish Airlines before. Now I don't want to fly with anyone else."
Cons: "seats were a little cramped for a 12hr flight, but I'm not a short guy. I guess it pays to go business class."
Pros: "I eventually arrived at the destination."
Cons: "Difficult to communicate with cabin crew due to lack of English. Flight was delayed by 1 hour. General atmosphere on plane was chaotic I think due to the small plane and length of flight as large numbers of people needed to use toilets."
Pros: "Not trying to be flattering here but it really is a good airline."
Cons: "First the flight was delayed 2 hours and then we sat on the plane for 7 hours before take-off, while the crew took care of several issues. Ridiculous. Should have made us wait at the airport gate so we could have eaten proper food and had wifi."
Cons: "My logged didn't arrived to Amman I received one and I miss one TAG number TK633655"
Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"
Cons: "The crew skipped our aisle whilst delivering the toiletry bags, some announcements were made purely in Turkish without regard to English passengers. The boarding gate from Istanbul was opened much later than the advertised times."
Pros: "short, so the missing entertainment system id forgivable. The crew is super,"
Cons: "legs space, legs space and legs space. I will hesitate to pick up turkish only because of tha"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Rich food and beverages menu. Rich and updated entertainment on board. Crew is polite and service is good."
Cons: "When boarding no air ventilation on board, so air is hot like sauna. After departure air condition is excellent."
Pros: "The entertainment and food were excellent"
Cons: "The boarding process was horribley inefficient. I stood in line in a non air conditioned terminal for over 30 minutes for a security check before boarding."
Pros: "excellent food, service"
Pros: "Food and service was excellent."
Cons: "Get rid of the foot rest, it blocks the ability to stretch your legs during a long flight. As a result, it was a very uncomfortable flight. I do not know of any other long haul airlines that have these. I will probably not fly Turkish Airlines on any flights over 3 hours due to the cramped space caused by your footrests. Other than space, everything else was excellent."
Pros: "The food was good, the crew was very professional and friendly."
Cons: "The seats are too crammed and there's barely any room in the economy class."
Pros: "Excellent service, excellent food, very friendly crew"
Cons: "no subtitles on English language movies, which means I could not understand half of the dialogues because of the noise and poor sound quality. It would be very nice to always have English subtitles on all English-language movies."
Pros: "Entertainment options are good. Flight timings and boarding was generally very good."
Cons: "The foot rest in economy class is really uncomfortable for people over 5'10'' in height as it means we have less legroom, even if it is folded up, and can be uncomfortable to press against. Food is too much the same across all Turkish Airlines flights. I took 6 flights with Turkish Airlines in 1 week and got cheese sandwiches in every flight!"

The boarding staff very friendly and efficient. Seats were comfortable and flight attendants were great.

Nothing to rave about. Just another flight

Screaming crying kids. Kid kicking seat. Late to board. Late to leave

Pros: "Crew was great, the seats are never comfortable"

Cons: "Great flight"
Cons: "crj900 from BUF-MSP is a wreck. worn out, uncomfortable seats, cold air coming from floor toes were numb for about 20m after flight. Flight delayed, missed connecting flight, lost comfort+ upgrade I paid for. No excuse for pitch in main cabin on 737-900 ER."

Cons: "Some chaos getting on the flight. The area they have set up for the different sections to wait before getting called weren't marked very well so everyone was bunched up and confused. Once they started calling the sections it was fine. Not sure why they even had the marked areas."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "the flight attendant gets the order starting from the back and by the time she gets to the front there's no more selection for breakfast except for what is left that nobody like."

Pros: "Smooth flight."
Pros: "The airline did not disappoint and the customer service were very professional"
Cons: "Make sure the new signs are posted in all airports for boarding. That will help control people at the entrance"
Cons: "At least 10, including my entertainment systems didn't work as soon as we took off. A 4 1/2 hour flight cross country with no entertainment, very disappointing. The crew was very unorganized, they couldn't even figure out how to give drinks and snacks in an efficient manner with initially skipping several rows without asking about either.

Never more flight with your company!!!

Delta operated. Missed connecting flight due to single late crew member in dfw. 1.5 h late. Missed work and incurred costs of over $800. Delta failed to hold connecting flight(s) at gate and it actually left EARLY. Fail. Never again.

being a flight attendant and using spécial fare I apreciate being treated equally to the other pax, the fact that the crew, when I informed them of my status, went to check if I had a good seat ( no one beside me, to be able to get good rest.) Those are important gestures towards the person. I look to more flights with KLM

Listening covid restrictions and following them is completely nonsense. Avoid touching others? How when plane is full and everybody who pass around touchs me. Keep distance?? How???? Avoid walking in the plane but also wash your hands regularly with soap and water? How? I should avoid walking but at the same time you want me to wash hand regularly? It means i have to walk up and down. What is regularly for you? Every 15mins? Every hour? Every day? It is so stupid what you are telling that my brain stops to work.

Pros: "Flight arrived on time"

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Entertainment was good, and crew was very nice and accommodating. Flight was very comfortable and smooth."
Cons: "The food was okay, not that great."
Pros: "Cabin Crew was awesome."
Cons: "Entertainment System was not working and no Non-veg food option in flight."
Pros: "The flight was very good, specially considering it was a daylight one. Staff was friendly and servicial. Tue food was above the industry's average."
Pros: "Good multi media access and content"
Pros: "Easy boarding, plenty of room"
Cons: "Per usual, KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Strange choice of in-flight movies; no accounting for taste, I guess."
Cons: "suitcase didn't turn up, although connection was quite tight"
Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "Sears we're toooo small"
Pros: "No chargers or tv on planes"
Cons: "At Amsterdam we were told that our checkin luggage wouldn't be at Sydney!! Some low fat meals were terrible!"
Pros: "Overall, my trip to Cardiff via Amsterdam was smooth and delightful. I've flown a few short trips this summer and I was pleasantly surprised to find KLM still offered complimentary snacks. What a refreshing change!"
Cons: "There was no entertainment which is why I assigned that category only one star. The boarding process in Amsterdam could have been a bit smoother. Announcements were no clear."
Pros: "Fortunately, the plane was not full, so people could spread out a bit to create extra room. The food was really good! (surprisingly)."
Cons: "KLM's new configuration for this type of plane made the seats even narrower than before. While leg room was reasonable, the 3 abreast seating meant a lot of discomfort, especially in the row right in front of the restroom."
Cons: "Horrible. First, we lost a suitcase. It could happen but for two days they did nothing and only told us stories (so as not to use the word lies). Within a few hours (and thanks to airline assistance) we were able to locate the suitcase. Even then it took them two days to bring it to us, two precious days off our planned vacation (7 days) At the end of the shortened vacation, we got to the chek in, and told that since the ticket I had purchased form them two months earlier was too cheap ... and since the flight was Over booked, they would take me off the plane if all the passengers would arrive. It's unnecessary to describe what I felt until the plane took off. They apologize constantly, but do nothing practical. a bae company. no me nor my freinds/family will go with KLM"
Pros: "Staff, service"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Special treat for King's Day Friendly crew"
Cons: "15 min late boarding 30 min delay leaving the gate Very little leg room"
Pros: "We really liked the KLM people, from the check in crew to the flight attendants."
Cons: "Because of slow boarding process flight was delayed by 15 minutes. I had short connection in Amsterdam."
Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."

Flight attendants wore very strong perfume along w a bumpy flight made me vomit 4 times in flight. Along with being delayed over 3 hours and missing our connection. Ugh

Horrible plane and very uncomfortable..

Our flight was canceled as soon as we reached the gate. No reason given! We were traveling to Buffalo for a wedding. Everything needed for that trip was in my suitcase. I had immediately went down to baggage claim to request my suitcase because I knew i wasn’t going to be able to reschedule the flight. I had no choice but to head to Buffalo (12 hour drive) of I was going to make it for the wedding! I was told my suitcase was headed to Buffalo! I tracked my suitcase and it never showed it leaving Charlotte. I had to buy clothes, shoes and toiletries, not only for me, but my child as well. All I got from AA was, “Sorry for the inconvenience.”

I am not an airline worker, so I can not judge or give opinions on the job. I do think the overall company needs an overhaul to get their stuff together. It seems like everything is very jumbled, unorganized and unhappy, compared to other airlines. I have flown w/ American 3-5 times over the last 3 months. Every single time, there was something going on. My husband and I are flying American to London, in October, to visit our son. We told him to anticipate delays and cancelation.

A lady who wouldn’t shut up next to me. And the baggage crew ( probably not American ) out my bag on with everyone else’s and it was to go to the security

The fact that it was over an hr delayed. Then an hr to get my bag in Dfw

Pros: "Entertainment on seats"
Cons: "I sat in seat 12A- the window was so hot it was burning my arm and I was extremely hot. Not sure if it’s from the engine heat or sun but it’s probably a mechanical issue that the 737 should address. Horribly uncomfortable trip."
Cons: "A movie player"
Pros: "The crew for the rear of the plane for this flight was fantastic."
Cons: "More Woodford reserve. Was only 1 available."
Cons: "Seat wasn’t comfortable and the on flight entertainment didn’t work. AA in flight WiFi kept giving error messages"
Cons: "My bag is misplaced and no one has an answer"
Cons: "This leg of my trip went off without a hitch boarding and crew were very professional."
Pros: "Seats are too close"
Cons: "Some food"
Pros: "Yes the flight was slightly empty so I had a ton of room!!!!"
Cons: "No inflight service"
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "3 hours late flight- customer care very insensitive and unhelpful"

Cons: "The gate changes...........and no information in 3 hour delay"
Pros: "Vegetarian chickpea curry were delicious"
Cons: "7 hour flight with no individual entertainment, plane was not clean chairs worn and controls were filthy. One flight attendant asked “Are you going to eat”? Customer interaction leaves much to be desired."

Cons: "They seemed to have entire plane boarding in group 6. Hardly anyone boarded in groups 1-5, and when they called 6 the entire gate area lined up."
Pros: "The gate was close to security, quick embarkation, departure on time, kind and professional service, decent size aircraft and overhead bins."
Cons: "Kind of dated, wifi didn’t work."
Pros: "None of the experience was pleasant"
Cons: "First flight was delayed causing us to miss the 2nd flight and we ended sleeping on a chair at the airport waiting for a morning flight. AMERICAN AIRLINES didn't even have the decency to put us in a hotel for the night due to their delay. Then they added a 2nd lay over which was delayed for hours also. Traveling was to visit my mother who had cancer and I was sick so this made the trip even more distasteful."
Pros: "Nothing really. I will never book from Kayak ever"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "Two of crew very chatty with each other on their personal lives, finances, friends and family."
Cons: "3rd flight in two weeks suck sitting next to a morbidly obese person. They should be forced to purchase two seats."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "westjet delayed my flight once again, so I was stuck in the LAX airport for 5 hours"
Pros: "I miss the first leg of my flight and they cancelled my whole ticket and didn’t rebook me. This was an intentional flight. I paid $1500 for the ticket and even when another airline was going to fly me to catch the second leg they denied me. This was my worst experience, I have missed flights before and I get rebooked pay some fee but I still get to my destination. I missed an opportunity to pay last respect to my dad. I’m so very disappointed"
Cons: "The customer service is just horrible. They simply don’t care about you just what you paid."
Pros: "Everything was great about my flight from Buffalo. Friendly people, easy boarding and flight was smooth as I expected."
Pros: "Nice crew, quick boarding"
Cons: "quite a bumpy ride, passenger's drink next to me went everywhere as a result; No entertainment"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic. Could have been more organized."
Pros: "Crew was excellent."
Cons: "The connection in Chicago was 3 HOURS late with several gate changes. People on the desk were rude and never explained what was wrong. They didn't even announce the gate. change. I got it from Kayak."
Pros: "Flight attendant"
Cons: "Delays Was told my ticket had been canceled"
Pros: "Crew was service oriented and friendly and food was good"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating; ran out of water on an 8 hour flight, and no individualized entertainment"
Pros: "Eveything ran smoothly"
Pros: "Left and arrived on time. Crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "Passengers are packed in like sardines. All carry on bags must be checked at the gate as the overhead bins are too small to accommodate anything except a small personal bag or jacket."
Cons: "5 hr delay"
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarding went smoothly."
Pros: "Headrest entertainment systems"
Cons: "Lack of comfort in the seat, pay for every little thing, departed late, 90% of all passengers seems to be lumped in "Group 6" making boarding extremely annoying. I suppose any other group costs extra."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Airplane should be a bit more modern."
Cons: "The flight attendant continued to serve alcohol to passengers (employees of TomKats catering - they screamed it throughout the flight) that were drunk and belligerent. Her poor judgement, and their complete lack of control, made the flight miserable."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. this is the third flight that has been cancelled to this destination. I waited for 7 hours in the airport and caught a flight on stand by. Because this has happended to me before I knew how to get a stand by ticket right away even though I was scheduled on a flight for later that day. Much later."
Cons: "Maintenance delay caused me a 4 hour delay getting home on a work night. Going to be a long day tomorrow. Switched connector to United."
Pros: "I like that their fleet has become slightly more modernized. Leathers seats are a plus"
Cons: "In flight entertainment and charging stations are a must. Slightly lacking in both those. Their flagship dreamliners have all these amenities but are new planes. Boarding on American seems like a broken process."
Pros: "Staff and customer service were great"
Pros: "Very nice crew. Full meal"
Pros: "My flight was late leaving buffalo ny which caused me to miss my connecting flight in Phl.... Never once was this delay communicated to ONE person sitting at the gate in buffalo. I even asked the attendant in buffalo if the plane was present at 1:10 pm and he responded that it would be landing in ten minutes. We were scheduled to board at 1:16 although I am highly disappointed to have gotten home 2.5 hours later than anticipated...communication is my biggest complaint here."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Easy boarding. Served food and beverages. Comfortable flight"
Cons: "Food tastes better on other international flights that I have taken. Movie and music selection better on other flights too. One flight attendant not so nice when I requested another napkin. The first one fell on floor when as I was attempting to pick it up. I did get another one."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Crew and the fact that they lost my bag"
