The flight doesn’t have usb ports to charge or no wifi. Looks really old aircraft. Didn’t feel safe
Travelled in time as advertised
The staff lied to me all day long. No one informed me that my flight times had changed. I’m still sleeping on the ground in the Middle East. The worst experience I have ever had flying. With this level of incompetence and lack of compassion I can’t imagine how the airline business will survivor. This experience has encouraged me to stop traveling. May god have mercy on you and your customers. Not sure I can handle to be lied to my face anymore . Sleeping on the floor in the middle East with no hope of getting home
This flight was cancelled
Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"
Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."
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: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
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"
Cons: "The seats are smaller than other airlines.My entertainment system stopped working mid-flight on a 16 hour flight from Doha to LAX.Food portion is not enough. No hot towels on boarding, no welcome drink or snacks. Food is served only twice on a 16 hour flight.Rude immigration officers"
Pros: "Customer service"
Pros: "exellent in everything"
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: "The staff wad nice"
Cons: "I have requested sea food and I was told that no request was made and they do not serve it any more."
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."
Cons: "On time. Reasonably good. Satisfied with everything."
Pros: "Gave food vouchers due to extended layover. Marché food quality is average at best."
Cons: "Biggest problem was late arrival, missing connection. Lateness caused by them at first, then a departing passenger caused further delay. But they were late to begin with. Next problem was their REFUSAL to give me an aisle seat. I reserved an aisle seat originally, aisle seats were available when I tried to change, but agent REFUSED to accommodate me with either aisle or window. Sat in middle with huge guy next to me. Very uncomfortable. Food was mediocre on this leg. Oh, and late departing AGAIN. Will seriously look for other options on next trip."
Pros: "Stellar crew -- super friendly, served water/juices constantly, polite, attentive. To be commended Great choice of movies and entertainment but no wifi???"
Cons: "This was an older 777 -- no wifi -- pretty surprising on such a key flight at DOH-JFK! This is not the airline's fault but I had a crazy lady next to me who was very disoriented, who could not speak English and needed assistance. No one would deal with her! She had a little pouch with her name on it -- like a UM -- so someone knew something was not right when they put her on the flight. I bought drinks inside the terminal for this 14 hour flight but they were all confiscated at the additional security at the gate!! WTF"
Pros: "I had an exit seat"
Cons: "Service was only fair, no power outlets for a 15 hour flight. Seats too narrow. Only good options for every meal was chicken and vegetarian"
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: "Seat was comfortable entertainment was nice food was excellent"
Pros: "Leaving that god forsaken airport after hours of waiting in lines."
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."
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"
Pros: "I liked staff , boarding was organized food was not very good needs to be improved"
Pros: "Completely satisfied. Excellent all the way!"
Cons: "Everything was perfect. Thank You."
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."
Cons: "Main course is not enough"
Pros: "Complimentary upgrade to business class."
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: "My husband and I recently traveled from New York to Bali Indonesia for our honeymoon. We were upgraded to Business for all four of our flight segments. The flight attendants were incredibly friendly and courteous and were actually surprised when we only ordered one drink and one meal at a time! The food was phenomenal, especially for an aircraft meal, and no matter what I was in the mood for, they had it."
Cons: "Boarding in New York was not organized. Those traveling with small children or needing assistance were not boarded first, nor were Business and Economy boarding from separate jetways."
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"
Cons: "Poor communication about transfers. I also had to throw away 20 pounds of things or get charge $800"
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."
Never again will I fly American!
What I liked =NOTHING What could have been better =EVERYTHING
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Being a tall guy, I appreciated the extra legroom in first class."
Cons: "The boarding in Burbank was chaotic and caused delays. Resulting in a longer delay to my final destination."
Cons: "Very good I like it👌"
Cons: "American Airlines is on top there game"
Cons: "A full flight in the midst of a pandemic. Totally unsafe! Safety first in the air and closed space vs how many you can pack in during a pandemic. Disgraceful! I have tried to avoid AA due to how they handle flying right now , I couldn’t today and they were just as bad as I imagined. Delta was so much safer and more protective of its customers . 50-60% full by design . Fly them and learn something."
Pros: "Great crew, very efficient"
Pros: "Crew was great, pilot was amazing through the rough turbulence. Thank you!"
Pros: "The captain was very professional"
Cons: "Departure was late because of problem with thrust reversers. Once the plane started to push back after 1,5 hours delay, we had to return to the gate for another 30 mins because of an error on the maintenance logbook entry."
Cons: "My seat back screen was inoperable. I had other stuff to do, so not a problem although I would have liked having music and movie options. Oh well... In other news, AA’s morning food options are incredibly lame. It’s almost as if they don’t want to sell any food. Finally, can come one tell me where to buy stock in those mediocre little Biscotti cookies they (and every other airline) pass out for free? Must be KILLING it!"
Pros: "Non stop smooth flight"
Cons: "Gate crew sucked"
Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "We were delayed an hour and when we arrived late no one was there to meet us at the gate. We had to wait to deplane."
Cons: "It was way too hot in the aircraft"
Cons: "There was crowding at the gate.. the staff was rude, sitting on the tarmac over an hour the plane was stuffy and no beverages were offered, no one was knowledgeable regarding if connecting flights would be missed,"
Cons: "Seemed disorganized getting on"
Pros: "The service was great"
Cons: "That you have to pay extra for entertainment, that you have to have your own device, and that the food was mediocre"
Cons: "Delayed, poor info, no snacks, not even water. Lady at gate was rude. And unpleasant. Nobody kept us informed correctly and when we asked we were treated unkindly. Horrible experience with AA. Will avoid"
Pros: "Latam would not transfer 1 medium baggage from LATAM to Avianca at Lima"
Cons: "the seat space just to tight not any leg room on long flight"
Pros: "Fast all to boarding and everything"
Cons: "No comment"
Cons: "Great flight on time no issues"
Cons: "Seats are so uncomfortable! Too close together"
Cons: "Getting canned and moved to a flight that is five hours later"
Pros: "Loved the BRAND NEW airplane!!"
Cons: "Food is so fatty. this is 2018, we should be having healthier choices."
Pros: "Dreamliner plane"
Cons: "Terrible service from get go which continued when landing in Melbourne with hopeless Qantas."
Pros: "Flight delayed due to no crew"
Cons: "Got hotel voucher for hotel with no rooms available"
Cons: "First flight was cancelled and alternate flight was delayed. USB charging port didn’t work. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Everything, crew, plane was clean, service was better than the previous international flight. Nont"
Pros: "We left right on time. Plane was clean and had option to charge phone"
Cons: "You had to pay to check a bag and you had to pay for food. Ridiculous."
Pros: "Crew and other personnel"
Cons: "I was not able to select a seat 24 hours before flight"
Pros: "Check-in staff very helpful"
Cons: "Airline valet checked luggage, deplaned us then had us wait as carry-on luggage was handed off one by one"
Pros: "Priority boarding."
Cons: "Food is horrible at AA, in special breakfast!"
Pros: "Entertainment service and film variety was good"
Cons: "Seats are too small, no place for my legs"
Pros: "Movie's were good"
Cons: "American Airlines sucks at pretty much everything. The only redeeming feature, if there was one, was the staff were decent once on the plane."
Cons: "First Class Flight Attendant spent more time on her phone in the jump seat than asking if we needed anything. Came by twice for a 3 hour flight. I had to go up front to ask for a beverage, and she seemed totally put out"
Cons: "Horrible - Flight was diverted to IAD for no legitimate reason. Rebooked out of DCA with no travel vouchers. Most likely never booking with American Airlines again."
Pros: "It's just like very other airlines."
Cons: "Delay. Old airplane with sewer smell in back. Not a great experience."
Pros: "I booked a codeshare ticket through Alaska Airlines reward program. I was worried I'd be shafted when it came to seats. Not so. I had the row to myself on both flights and just 2 rows shy of first class! Very impressed."
Cons: "Becasue I was in boarding group 8, I was advised to again check my carry-on bag. When I boarded (almost the last person to do so), there was an empty overhead compartment directly across from my seat. I had to wait 30-40 minutes at the carousel to collect this carry-on bag. I could have just gone directly to my car as I had no other checked bags. Very poor service. I will avoid booking with American Airlines in the future."
Cons: "Small seats, no wifi, no chargers, terrible entertainment."
Pros: "convenience of Burbank airport"
Cons: "staff at check-in couldn't get my TSA pre-check printed on my ticket, got picked out to be patted down in regular line"
Cons: "Paid for extra legroom, got a seat that didn't recline :("
Pros: "I liked that we arrived alive. Bad weather had been forecasted for several days before our flight. Yet the pilot did not change direction to avoid the horrendous bumps until about 30 min. Outside of Dallas when he opted to come in from the West. Although the pilot said it was safe many if not most the passengers were very concerned if not terrrified. Even the stewards were not able to work. They were directed to stay in their jump seats."
Cons: "I know you have to make money. But squeezing so many into such a small space is not only uncomfortable, but dangerous. If we would have to evacuate the plane most would not have been able to dot out of their seats."
Pros: "The flight was late octavius"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Paying for WiFi"
Pros: "Eventually we got to hartford"
Cons: "Delayed leaving ATL, sat on the Tarmac for 30 mins. Leaving CLT was delayed 1.5 hrs for mechanical issue because it problem occurred during a shift change. Also was never given the opportunity to choose a seat assignment on CLT-BDL so I ended up in the very last middle seat."
Pros: "On time clean comfortable flight"
Pros: "Awesome and funny service."
Pros: "Excellent gate crew"
Cons: "Pretty uncomfortable seat"
Cons: "two hours late. No info. No recompense. It was a very long day."
Pros: "gate agent helped to get me on a flight at LAX just made it an extra 10 hours"
Cons: "not cancel my flight"
Pros: "Good flight, nice staff."
Cons: "Food not the greatest and flight over-crowded."
Pros: "Flight was on time and quick"
Cons: "Seat comfort was terrible, as if the seats were made for children."
Pros: "Great inflight service! On the ground faster than expected."
Cons: "I asked to complementary check my small carry on, but the attendants at the desk would not let me. The stewardesses were booked too closely to their last flight and we were delayed - huge oversight. Boarding was chaotic as the gate immediately across from us was simultaneously boarding and the United staff made the whole process long and miserable by failing to call the next boarding group in a timely fashion. This is not the first time I’ve felt miserable while trying to board a United flight :/."
Cons: "Delayed departure; cramped seat; minimal amenities"
Pros: "The plane, crew and boarding was great, and the food and drinks were quite good. Legroom in standard economy class was passable for a 6'2" person."
Cons: "I booked through the United website as trip from US, have Silver status on United, and Lufthansa's policies of not allowing advance (1-2 mo before flight) seat selection (never on UA nor LH websites) are just horrible. Hard to get through on 800 number, and 1 day before trip answer was still to do it in Frankfurt. Economy plus was $1000 more/person, and even then no guarantee I could choose a seat far in advance. Then, at computer kiosk in Frankfurt, they had a wrong diagram of the plane,as we ended up on what turned out to be a no-recline row which I would never get. I'm 6'2", 230lbs, and wasn't able to sleep on that flight. Had I been able to reserve a seat behind a bulkhead or in exit row 2mos in advance, I would have been fine."
Pros: "Leg room 7 aisle"
Cons: "Pretzels on a 4 our flight? There should have been some food"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Horrible uncomfortable plane"
Cons: "Would not give us hotel vouchet"
Pros: "Quick and easy to board."
Cons: "One hour delayed departure after an already too long 3.5 hour layover."
Pros: "I really can't complain about the flight. Great service and on time"
Cons: "The only unfortunate thing was there were no TVs which was a bummer"
Pros: "Caught all my flights on time everything went smooth."
Cons: "All good things"
Pros: "6 HOUR DELAY I THINK THAT SAYS IT ALL"
Cons: "The Overnight flight I had was EXTREMELY uncomfortable. Too uncomfortable to even sleep at all. The seating is so tight, I could barely move my legs when the seat in front of me was reclined (and I am tiny!) I landed after my connecting flight was already boarded, causing an employee from the airline to announce my name over the intercom on the plane and tell the passengers to "clear a lane for me." I ran with my suitcase over my head, bumping into people and making it to my next gate...where I was told there was ABSOLUTELY NO ROOM for my carry on...which was also, very tiny. I specifically did not want to check my bag because I needed to immediately hop off the plane to make it to work on time. Another customer was VERY upset about having to check his bag and was pulled aside. I finally was told I needed to check my bag at the gate to get on. So i did. As I entered the plane, about half of it was COMPLETELY empty with PLENTY of room. I was floored. About 10 minutes later, the very angry man happily entered with his carry on and stored it easily in the overhead bin. My frustration was at a peak. But I said nothing. When I arrived to Newark, I rushed to baggage claim and guess what? After 30 minutes of waiting, my bag never showed up. I had to check in with information and finally found it. But this caused to me to be late for work. I have usually had a great experience with United. But this experience has changed my mind completely and am very upset."
Cons: "Flight cancelled and no alternative to deal with cancelled flight"
Pros: "The best time to fly a particular airline is right after they've been in the news with bad publicity. Every single personnel was attentive and cordial."
Cons: "It was a smaller plane and very full. The seats are packed so tightly together, you dare not sneeze."
Pros: "Everything was fine on the first leg."
Cons: "Delays, very long delays. Not a fault of anyone but United had delays."
Pros: "Seats comfortable Flights on time Good communication between airline staff and passengers"
Pros: "Very comfortable and the staff was great!"
Pros: "Flight attendant was fine"
Cons: "Was told upon checking in that they did not have s seat for me. United airlines informed me that third party websites do not guarantee seats. You must book directly on united. They over book the flight and several passengers were not allowed on the flight"
Pros: "fast smooth safe trip"
Cons: "They ran out of food, didn't get any snacks, which were pretzels, I would prefer peanuts like in the old days."
Cons: "HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE FROM UNITED AND THE THIRD PARTY CONSOLIDATOR. Awful. Awful. Awful."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and on board crew was nice and helpful. Flight attendant noticed I came on with a cane and offered to have a wheelchair ride available in the SF airport. Reminding me that it was a large airport. I declined, but she encouraged me to try it and I agreed. She was concerned and very helpful."
Cons: "The plane was a small plane and we had to disembark on the tarmac. There were two attendants with wheelchairs but they didn't have my name so I walked on. The flight attendant called to me and said to wait. One of the attendants came up with a wheelchair and said he would take me. Unfortunately, a steep ramp had to be used to get into the airport building. He asked another worker to help him and all the way up the ramp I had to listen to comments about "good thing they had eaten their Wheaties" and "they were getting a good workout." I know that I am not a small person, but these ongoing comments were rude and insulting. When we got into the gate the attendant told me that he didn't have my name on his list and had to call for permission to take me through the airport. I waited and he came back and said he couldn't take me, but if I could wait someone else could come for me. I had waited enough already and suffered their rude comments, so I said no thanks and walked slowly through the airport. This experience has left me with a bad feeling for the airline and its personnel. I believe their staff could use sensitivity training at the very least!"
Cons: "Had to wait at gate for a while before disembarking."
Pros: "On way from Boston to SF, Burbank,,and from Burbank to SF, everything, from service, plane comfortability, seating, was excellent. I was really impressed! But they dropped the ball,the last leg of journey."
Cons: "In SF, I paid wheelchair assistant, who left me at Gate 62, and I told him to come get me if gate changed. He never came back, even after hefty tip, and last minute I had to get to Gate 73, almost fainted, I have leukemia. Though I was able to,board first, the plane was older, smaller, and I was out in an E, middle, seat. Horrible experience."
Cons: "No notification that the flight was cancelled until I got to the airport. Not sure then why I share my phone number and email"
Cons: "Loud girls behind me talking."
Pros: "Super sweet flight crew and great entertainment."
Pros: "Plane was clean and crew was helpful and professional."
Cons: "Flight was not on time."
Pros: "Crew was able to get most of those delayed onto the incomming flight which was also delayed."

Cons: "The food item's for purchase were over priced!!!"
Pros: "I waited for 4 hours on the second left of my flight. That was unpleasant but I appreciate Kayak sending continuous updates"
Cons: "read above"
Cons: "Four hour equipment delay on departure One hour equipment delay in return I never want to fly connecting again but it was the only way to get from Newark to Burbank."
Pros: "The flight attendant was super."
Cons: "Nothing really. I would like it if pilots would be more interactive. Tell passengers landmarks and cities/states they pass over. Seems no one does that."
Pros: "Getting to my destination"
Cons: "Almost 3 hours delay on the way there and the same on the way back. It's so unacceptable"
Pros: "Other than all my flights were delayed"
Cons: "Flights delayed"
Cons: "Plane Was delayed For 3 hours. Will never fly United. Alaska is way better"
Cons: "The plane broke and we had to be towed. We didn't land until 2am. I had to get a hotel."
Pros: "nothing my plane was canceled"
Cons: "that my trip was canceled"
