Cons: "The ability to state a seat or meal preference within the app would be good but otherwise all was good."
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Cons: "The leg room on the long flight was less than I would have wished and it was particularly bad when the person in front put their seat back. this was a day time flight and it would have been good to have a bit more room to use a laptop."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant"
Cons: "Not only was there free food but they tried to sell you a bunch of stuff. Not a moments piece."
Pros: "The crew were lovely and welcoming. We was given snacks and drinks on the flight which was great. Take off was a bit delayed but boarding was smooth. Couldn't complain about the comfort as was only just over an hours flight."
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "Wide selection of entertainment, food was good."
Cons: "Boarding unorganized, but that may have been more of a passenger issue then KLM"
Pros: "KLM fed a sandwich even though the flight was only 2 hours. The crew was pleasant. Getting through the Amsterdam airport to catch a connecting flight with only an hour to do so was no big deal. Airport staff was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "I really did not find anything to improve, it was a pleasant flight"
Pros: "My air hostess was very friendly and kind"
Cons: "Food for vegetarians"
Pros: "The flight was on time and landed early"
Cons: "The bags could have come out earlier and the food could be better"
Pros: "The crew were very attentive and there was a large variety of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "I am not a heavy set guy but the seats were unreasonably close to each other, this meant that when you eat a meal your elbows push into your sides making it hard to bring food to your mouth."
Cons: "Very narrow seats"
Cons: "Seating is a big problem. I am only 192 cm tall and cannot really fit my legs into the space. Have them out in the corridor"

Pros: "Service was excellent"
Cons: "Entertainment system getting a bit long in the tooth on 747. Hot breakfast could have done with some colour"
Pros: "Things went as planned in the beginning. The young lady who checked me in at the BA counter was very friendly and helpful. The preboarding and boarding went very smoothly as well."
Cons: "The plane boarded as usual then things went wrong. There was apparently something that went wrong with furl getting into a separate storage tank (that's scary in itself...how does that happen?) and they announced that they couldn't get the fuel tank to fill completely and the mechanics needed to get a "special tool" to complete the process. Then they needed some "tool" to drain the fuel from the mysterious storage tank. That was done and they announced that they had decided that they had plenty of fuel to make it to Denver. An hour and a half later of sitting in a sweltering hot cabin the y announced that the mechanical issues were taken care of BUT we'd have to wait another 20 minutes to take off because of the traffic waiting to leave Heathrow."
Pros: "Do the upgrade if its available!"
Cons: "long delays between segments of the flight however the business class BA lounge was excellent . Entertainment systems on the 747 aircraft are getting dated"
Pros: "Very professional and friendly employees. Someone fainted in our cabin and the crew members took very professional care and offered the passenger oxygen."
Cons: "Very packed cabin, offered us just a sandwich after the first main meal."
Pros: "Food was decent and they came back to offer us another drink."
Cons: "Plane was old and dated. No usb or outlets to charge any devices on a 10.5 hour flight. Also seating was small and cramped. I wish there was a way to automatically get an isle seat or emergency row seat if you are over 6ft tall."
Pros: "No hassle with hand luggage"
Pros: "747s are good stable planes in flight"
Cons: "The greatest problem was dealing with the usual chaos and discomfort of traveling through Heathrow airport. Primitive and time-consuming transportation system between terminals- Had to ride overcrowded buses packed with so many people that your body was pressed against your neighbor. Inadequate number of restrooms and poor signage to find them. Bad selection of restaurants. Then at the terminal, boarding time listed as 10:40, but they did not even announce the boarding gate until 10:40. Then a 10 minute ride on another overcrowded bus to the plane which you had to board by a staircase (and a staircase to the door on a 747 is no small thing!) Although flight was smooth in the air, the pilot landed so "hard" I thought the landing gear must have been damaged!"
Pros: "Efficient processes. All went to plan"
Cons: "Tight seating. Old plane. Entertainment screen sub par"
Cons: "The transfer from T5 to T3 was chaotic. Queues to join queues to get the transfer bus. People were getting caught on a moving escalator because the crowd in front had nowhere they could go to make room. Extremely dangerous! It took longer to get from T5 to T3 than it did to get from Dublin to London. Boarding in T3 for the flight to Denver was almost as bad. Bodies everywhere, no organisation and no help. Then the aircraft itself was so old with uncomfortable seats and an almost unwatchable screen. I will never transit through LHR again."
Pros: "On-time/early arrival, relatively communicative staff who also provided timely service. Bags delayed upon final destination."
Cons: "Seating became uncomfortable after so many hours. Boarding times long. Staff was at time over the top with their checks."
Pros: "I liked the fact that the customer service on board was pretty spectacular & very clean bathrooms."
Cons: "It was extremely warm throughout the flight and the seats weren’t too comfortable."
Pros: "Your staff were truly excellent, helpful and engaging."
Cons: "My TV worked only intermittently and I therefore could not relax and enjoy the entertainment..."
Cons: "transfer from terminal 5 to terminal 3 - process was unclear"
Pros: "Meal from Lagos to London was good"
Cons: "I don't know why spray was used on Lagos flight to London and London flight to Denver no spray."
Pros: "Checking documents on entering gate area rather than at boarding time, made for more efficient boarding"
Cons: "Delay in baggage reclaim due blockage in system"
Pros: "Flt attendants. Esp the english guy."
Cons: "Once again just some measly pretzels."
Pros: "Made up for time due to a big tail wind"
Cons: "Took off late and had to wait 45 minutes for luggage"
Pros: "Flight was on time,actually ahead of time."
Cons: "Aircon was not efficient. Very hot in the plane."
Cons: "very little food! chairs r too tight and tv screens r rediculously small... no usb adaptors to charge ur phone, no toilette seat covers!"
Cons: "Nothing was impressive at all"
Cons: "They were awful"
Pros: "British Airways code share is always nice"
Cons: "Older 747 not quite as nice as the Dreamliner but it made it!"
Pros: "Fight was on time. BA Crew always do a nice job."
Cons: "The entertainment on the flight didn't work. It is not easy to have two small kids on a 9 hour flight when the entertainment system isn't working properly. We did bring our own items to entertain our kids but with the limitations on what you can carry on we were banking on them being able to use the in flight system."
Pros: "I'd like to mention Ramon, a crew member on the flight, who was extremely helpful and kind. Also, the food was quite good."
Pros: "The first class steward who helped us when he didn't need too. The free films."
Cons: "I flew British Air in the past and had excellent service. I actually would have paid a bit more to choose them as an airline. No longer! Horrible service. Our stewardess was rude and unhelpful. Best example, when my husband turned in the remains of his last meal, something had leaked over his tray table. She didn't bother to help. He luckily had some extra napkins. She watched him clean it up and then left without taking the soiled napkins. Thanks. The meal quality was poor on the international flight. American handled the start of our vacation. Such a superior international flight quality compare to British Air."
Pros: "Staff are all great. No fuss and every thing on time."
Cons: "It's economy class and always cramped. Standards slipping in the toilets a little. Seats are getting worn. The entertainment choice could be better. Food quality has also gone down"
Pros: "Service, comfort"
Cons: "They lost my bag due to flying a 3rd party "Vueling" and did not add my FF# and would not do it at the airport so now I have to sort through online pages and phone queues to do something that definitely should have been feasible and included at airport (I added it on my outbound flight but because of this 3rd party being the originating operator of my return flight it was not included on my return)."
Pros: "I generally fly business or first but not this flight I felt like we were treated like we were in first class the attendants was great. Really great. I became a believer in British on this flight!"
Cons: "Antiquated and glitchy entertainment system on the 747-400"
Pros: "Crew were attentive and competent."
Cons: "The food was just not very good which is a bummer since it was a long flight."
Pros: "Fantastic chicken curry! Best airline food EVER! Nice stewardesses too....."
Cons: "I suppose I expected a slightly bigger toilet on a 747, but no biggie."
Pros: "I liked the polite and friendly manner of the flight attendants."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over an hour after boarding, and the temperature was uncomfortably warm. Even after takeoff, it took several hours for the temperature to cool down to normal. I have not experienced this before and wonder why it took so long to cool. All of the passengers around me were complaining of the heat.."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Pros: "1st class flight attendant sat through the entire flight (except for offering drinks and food early in flight). There were passengers NOT wearing masks through the flight but she wouldn't know that since she never left her seat"
Cons: "just about everyting"
Cons: "IFE was not streaming movies, WiFi on but not loading"
Cons: "Spacing people out until this covid is over"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Appreciated the pilot keeping us informed re: turbulence and avoiding it"
Pros: "I loved everything! Best flight experience in a long time. Really easy, on time, great window seat, thank you"
Cons: "Me probably. You guys were excellent!"
Cons: "Not allowed unleashed dogs to take my seat or be in my flight"
Cons: "The plane had a mechanical issue that they needed to address (due to the fact that they prior crew did not address it) and we sat in the gate for 2 hours waiting. No worries water was offered by crew and the flight had no food."
Cons: "Flight got delayed. We paid for assigned seating for our almost 85 yo mom. And the change in flight no one asked for to get seated in the front of plane. Instead she was seated all the way in the back. It was physically exhausting for her."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Absolutely no accommodation for seat assignments and the lady at the gate was so rude for even just asking to sit next to my fiancé even though there were tons of single people on the flight."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "The gate change was not announced on my phone app (changed from E7 to D49). I hate leaving out of Terminal E at MIA. There is no point to having TSA Pre-Check if you have to stand in line with people who don't have it. I have to remove my liquids and laptop. It's such a shabby, run-down terminal."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Not enough leg room. They did a gate change and I almost missed the flight because nothing was announced and when I looked at my phone app it had the previous gate."
Pros: "Overhead bins were newly done with plenty of space since carryon can be placed vertical on side. Decide holder built into the seat was very nice."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Pros: "Pretty standard flight"
Cons: "Inconvenient timing and overcrowded with obnoxious children sitting on laps. No attempts made to change their behavior by crew or parents."
Cons: "Ran out of food that I like"
Pros: "The plane looks like new. Great seats, phone and tablet holders at the seat back, USB outlet and a smooth flight."
Cons: "The WiFi did not work and so no entertainment for a flight of almost 4 hours."
Cons: "I hate Americans boarding process"
Cons: "3+ hour flight with no TV/ entertainment"
Pros: "Not using kayak."
Cons: "Worst flights in history. It took three days to get from Italy to the US. Do not use kayak!"
Pros: "Our plane was given to another group going to Orlando so we were delayed almost 4 hours. This after a 5 hour layover."
Cons: "Gate lady was funny about being pissed about the delay."
Pros: "They got us there quickly."
Pros: "Ahead of schedule"
Pros: "Seats were too tight and too close together."
Pros: "Movie and tv selection was good. Boarding was a cinch, we took off exactly on time, seats were comfortable, too."
Cons: "Airline misplaced my boyfriend's checked back with our duty free Portuguese wine in it. It still hasn't been delivered to him the next day. They had three hours to get the bag on the flight."
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Outlet did not work"
Cons: "Flight crew was late and didn’t try and make things move faster to make up time. Kept saying they wanted to go Puerto Rico and that’s where they should have been going."
Cons: "Everything. Had to sleep overnight in airport and was late coming home."
Pros: "Wonderful, again. Will fly American any chance I get!"
Cons: "No tvs!!"
Cons: "the new seats are awful"
Pros: "Tv and power outlets"
Cons: "This one attendant didn't get her name but was very cold to me"
Cons: "Long delay"
Cons: "Small plane"
Pros: "Good serice,"
Cons: "Good service to switch flight pattern from greenville to new bern but still a delay that cause a 2 flight connection. Lots of on-line issues with check-in, overall a stressful day, hopefully it will all work out!"
Pros: "More improved than the last trip I took with AA to Denver. Efficient boarding."
Pros: "The plane was sleek and clean. I had a good amount of room even in coach!"
Pros: "Nothing. AA is the worst airline. Period."
Cons: "Rude flight attendants, delayed flight (as always), just AWFUL."
Cons: "The flight was 3 hrs late, of which 1.5 before boarding, and almost 1.5 stuck in the plane."
Pros: "Flight not entirely sold out. So they let my 14 month grandson have an empty seat between my daughter and I. That was a great gift since he doesn't sleep and is jumping and crawling all over the place. And I'm sure the other passengers were breathing sighs of relief!! Also super smooth landing and nice flight attendants."
Cons: "Flying with an active 14 month old toddler boy and of his "stuff" is nothing less than anxiety provoking. Not much the airline can do.."
Cons: "Had to board three times, two different planes. I understand mechanical problems, but 3 hours later, and on another plane, the captain starts making stuff up, saying that the only reason we hadn't moved in the last hour was because people were using the bathroom, then something about having to deplane because the plane couldn't back up with us on it because of some sensor? And then, surprise ! All of the sudden they noticed there was an issue with his and some of the crews' hours and we had to wait till they could locate more crew. But they gave us each a 1/3 glass of water and later a $12 food voucher which didn't even cover a meal and beverage. Whoop-de-do. 7 hours later we finally boarded for the third and last time. The crew on the other hand stayed professional and friendly."
Cons: "Seats too small and the gentleman next to me was a big guy so crowded over into my seat some."
Pros: "Very friendly staff"
Pros: "The plane was new on the interior and comfortable."
Cons: "The customer service from AA representitives in the airport was completely unnacceptable and the absolute worst service I have recieved in an airport to date! One incident during this trip was as follows: When arriving in Charlotte and running to catch my connecting flight, I arrived as the lady at the desk was closing the door, she looked at me and rolled her eyes. When I went up to the desk along with the other passengers arriving from the same flight as me the AA representative said "Hurry up , I want to go home!! At a point I'm just going to cut you off and that will be it!" She was of no help to me in anyway amd was forced tonstay the night in charlotte ; Normally this would not have been such a big deal, However I am on emergency leave from the Navy rushing home because I have a very serious family emergency, that representitive was very lucky I held my temper! From now on thanks to the poor unproffessional customer service I received I will no longer be flying American Airlines!"
