No response from staff at New York as we missed our connection to my final destination due to the delay of flight from qatar and they didn't even book my next flight too. Such worst experience .

I was so happy and at ease with the crew 100 %the best ever

Ground Staff in SFO were rude

Everything was fine

Check in process at Dubai was not easy. Qatar does not use its own employees they are outsourced.

Flight was delayed 2 hrs.

Everything was good but they need to improve on time

unfortunately we were unable to travel at this time due to the ongoing Covid situation in Sri Lanka. we hope to go instead in March 2022.

This flight was cancelled

Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"
Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"
Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."
Cons: "Every thing is good"
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"
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: "courteous service and a clean modern airplane"
Cons: "The sound system was inadequate on the TV and the headsets were uncomfortable. The queue at the check-in needs to be better controlled, it was a bit chaotic."
Cons: "The airline demaged both of my completely new suitcases. They both had TSA approved locks. One of the suitcses has a missing wheel, another one ripped zipper and missing lock and it was wraped in plastic. A few items were missing from that bag."
Pros: "Super comfy seat and entertainment, plus staff super nice"
Cons: "Too long on boarding"
Pros: "qatar airways"
Cons: "serving alcohol to passengers more than once is disturbing the passengers on the side"
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 check-in for my first flight was great in Philadelphia."
Cons: "There are no lounges in Philadelphia that accepted my Priority Pass. Your economy passengers deserve options, which I have paid for. Movie options were not as good as expected."
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: "good crew"
Cons: "plane hadn't been cleaned (trash/food garbage in the seat pockets), plane was very hot"
Pros: "No proper meal provided"
Cons: "PROPER comfort zone not provided at all"
Pros: "Service, entertainment, crew were all excellent!"
Cons: "Flight length"
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: "Crew"
Cons: "Preboarding area had no bathrooms. Boarding process was erratic with conflicting calls for zones. Discomfort with people bumping you as they walked down the aisle..toilets unkempt. Exit row USB port misaligned with seating area, so my USB cable bent and broke."
Cons: "Old plane treating the Africans like poor people of no value .. All other Qatar flights have newer aircrafts"
Pros: "Short flight, seat pitch OK and food adequate. Good crew."
Cons: "Bus boarding always chaotic"
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: "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: "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: "Everything was great except the plane from Doha to Beirut it was too small with no seat screens and bad c music channels and non-comfortable seats !! :( otherwise everything was great !! I like Qatar airlines and don't hesitate to travel with them again Thank you"
Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"
Pros: "It was nice service and hospitality"
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"

Flight attendants were outstanding! I was traveling with my 9 months old alone and I can’t express how kind and helpful they were.

Flight attendants were excellent.

Cons: "Not make me check my carry on when there was adequate room in plane"
Cons: "Delta is always a step above the rest."
Pros: "I was moved up to comfort instead of main cabin."
Cons: "The wifi didn’t seem to be working on the flight even tho it said it was equipped."
Pros: "Crew was exceptionally nice. Live DISH TV unexpected and appreciated."
Cons: "Assigning seats at check in? Why was that a thing? Also why did we have to wait for almost an hour once we landed to be given a gate for us to unload? So stupid the whole thing."
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Customer service"
Cons: "The Delta flight leaving Cleveland was a hour and a half late so we could not make our connection to get home and had to overnight in Minneapolis. This is the fourth time in six flights For Delta. I think the Kayak booking algorithm needs to allow more time between connecting flights."
Pros: "Quick boarding and great with accommodating my request for a window seat."
Cons: "Offer in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Crew was great. Always attentive to needs of the passengers."
Cons: "Can't really think of anything unless you can shorten the flight!?!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing this round I got good seats"
Cons: "Forgot my earphones so I had to read a book. I never asked nor did I see earphones"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "When all overhead bins were full, they should have allowed those who didn’t need to check their carry on to board the plane before those who needed to check their carry on. Very unorganized at gate."
Pros: "The ceew"
Cons: "Unorganized boarding and 6 hour delay from expected departure time."
Pros: "Delta in flight entertainment is great."
Cons: "Always delayed."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and our luggage is lost"
Pros: "We eventually got there"
Cons: "In Cleveland, the doors remained opened for about 30 minutes after they were supposed to close, and 6-7 people boarded. We then arrived in ATL quite a bit after we were scheduled to land."
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "Delta Comfort Plus for the win! Great seats with plenty of legroom and room for carry ons. Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew were fantastic and tried their best the delay."
Cons: "Delayed flight. 2 hours delay. Had to rebook a connecting flight and hence was very tight to board the next flight"
Pros: "Flight was good. Left on time. Crew was attentive."
Cons: "Did not assign seat at check in. Had to go to gate and check in. Staff handled it well, but it was inefficient. Wasted time dealing with it."
Pros: "Two ladies working in the aisles were very pleasant and nice"
Cons: "Takeoff accelerated too much... nicer to have a longer launch process"
Pros: "Efficient on board crew"
Cons: "Ground crew caused delay for unknown reason"
Pros: "The crew is always wonderful. The complimentary beverage and snack really makes the flight better, even in the tiny seats. The flights with tv screens and charging ports are great, although they only seem to be on my shorter of the two connecting flights."
Cons: "Crew allows the first zones to place both their carryon and personal items in overhead storage, filling the bins before many travelers board the plane. We are then asked to check our bag, and are forced to put our 1 bag between our legs, whole many people stored two overhead. Flight was delayed a few minutes and time was not made up in air. Delta changed a few of our flights before we were even off the plane, while other passengers were allowed to keep their original flight (originally we all had the same connecting flight). Looks to me like they overbooked and pulled some of us randomly. Also, my checked bag was sent on wrong plane, and sat unattended at next airport for 2 hours."
Pros: "everiding si so good thanks this is my 2nd time lovet"
Cons: "so organais tritment so good everiding lovet"
Cons: "The worst"
Pros: "Short trip"
Cons: "Very hot ride"
Cons: "Aircraft seemed shabby despite refresh of Comfort Plus, food was really mediocre. Steer clear of the Asian Veg option."
Cons: "Alhamdoulillah"
Pros: "Service was fast and the inflight entertainment is free. Lots of movies to chose from, which is nice for the long flight."
Cons: "It was the most cramped I have ever felt in a plane and also the longest flight. Horrible combination. Some of the crew were snippy."
Pros: "Despite small aircraft, boarding was fast and easy. On time departure and arrival. And quite clean aircraft despite a very fast turnaround. And Biscoff!!!! Delta's free wifi for messaging is a nice touch, as is free in-flight video. In-flight music would be nice, too. Doesn't hurt to ask :)"
Pros: "On time. Most important"
Pros: "We were treated very well and it was a short, sweet flight. Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Good service, on time, clean planes"
Cons: "The commuter Jets seats are really small unless you pay for Delta Comfort"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable. These short haul flights often have worn out, painful seats."
Cons: "They do a bad job of screening people with bags too large for the overhead bins and then those people have to check one they have already tried to board and it slow things down."
Pros: "Delta was so accommodating"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "- usb abd 110v charging ports on the seat backs - in-flight entertainment system for all passengers - comfy seats and adequate legroom in basic econ."
Cons: "- zone 1-5 boarding does not make for good logic - should board all window seat passengers first, then all middle seaters, and finally all aisle sear passengers"
Pros: "I liked that Delta gave me quick alternative flights and was able to switch at no charge to another flight using their app. I was traveling with my 12 year son and they were accommodating in seating us together."
Cons: "The hassle and the fact that we had to run to catch the new flight."
Pros: "Hey, they let us off the plane."
Cons: "The plane had just come in & problem was detected. Does it really take an hour to get the log book recorded?"
Pros: "Delta is a mess to check in. Check in on line, print boarding passes then stand for an hour to get bag checked, in Cleveland an. urn ind almost as long in Austin. Terrible"
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "The plane was dirty and there was a lot of trash around my seat."
Cons: "Cancelled my flight then re-booked me for the next day; was able to then find a flight same day but 7 hours later. That then was delayed another 4 hours and I had to buy a rental car to drive home instead. Thus far they have been unresponsive in getting me a refund for my travel. Don't fly Delta."
Pros: "Hard to like anything with this delay -- missed 3 appointments in Raleigh."
Cons: "If you have to swap out planes, do it at night, not the morning of the flight! And tell the customers in advance, so they can get some sleep instead of hurrying to the airport for an "on time" flight that couldn't be flown because of an equipment problem."
Cons: "Economy seating was cramped and painful. I sat in a window seat and couldn't hardly move freely enough to get my seatbelt on; and I am a petite female!!"
Cons: "After checking in at a kisok I had to wait in a huge line for over 20 minutes just to drop the bag. This the second time I have had this experience with them."
Cons: "the seats are WAY TOO SMALL"
Pros: "I fly Delta Airlines 2x a year and if I had to go on this flight experience alone I would never fly with them again. This particular flight attendant. Brunette who wore all red~ like she had a personal conflict with us from the moment we walked on the plane. We were sitting in the back and could hear the things that she was saying about my grandson and myself. She was rude, snotty, had a sassy mouth. I was COMPLETELY APPALLED as to the way we were treated by her. It was a long flight to have someone you felt was bullying you the whole flight to the moment we were exiting the plane. Karma will come back to her one day..."

Pros: "Our original flight delayed and then cancelled and the need help kiosk was quick to provide an alternative. Better aircraft and good flight compared with the original flight"
Cons: "The replacement flight has been delayed almost 2:30 hours due to bad weather in NYC."
Pros: "The aircraft was much better than the originally plan which was delayed and then cancelled. Comfort seats and cleaner aircraft was a nice surprise after 5.5hrs of stranded time at the CLE airport."
Cons: "Delayed for 5.5 hours."

When boarding started, it was like refugees rushing to a life boat. Everyone was rushing to the front. Only one KLM staff standing there saying "... now is this group, yours is next,,,, we will call it out...." While he stopped some travelers, he did allowed some others passed without even checking their ticket. They have all the digital gears, and the screens to show the current boarding sequences, why don't they just use that. For some of us that did not have a excellent hearing, it was hard not trying to get closer to understanding what is going on.

There was already a group forming a line at zone 4 for a good 15mins and another group created another line just 5mins before boarding and the 1st group had to re-queue. A few of us voiced out to the floor crew but they did nothing. Earphones. Could be supplied first since the flight is suffisent for a movie.

Have people at the Westjet counter

Nice steady flight, on time, enjoyed the complementary snack and drink. Good work KLM

Ok

Dreamliner was comfortable and entertainment system good

Pros: "The crew from Kili to DarEsSalam was tired. A fresh crew worked from DarEsSalam to AMS and they were great."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic. The passengers in the first boarding group had to fight through the crowd because there were no boarding lanes."
Pros: "Food was great, movie selection too. Everything was great except for I couldn’t really get comfortable to sleep"
Cons: "Not sure how to make the seats more comfortable. I have some back issues though. However, some of my travel companions slept right through the flight."
Pros: "Crew were excellent"
Cons: "Old aircraft. Uncomfortable seats in economy. Entertainment screens old and almost impossible to watch - watched my iPhone! No mobile phone charger."
Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"
Pros: "economy plus seats were nice, great movie selection, especially international movies"
Cons: "crew was not friendly, i had to ask for water many times, usually water person walk the aisle. food was terrible. other carriers food were better"
Pros: "very nice crew"
Cons: "my bagfage was lost"
Cons: "KLM crew exceed our expectations"
Pros: "Crew helpful. Food good."
Cons: "Better range of movies please"
Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Refreshments"
Pros: "Great plane and staff"
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "The bed was comfortable. Entertainment selection and large TV screen was good. The KLM crew is amazing, as usual."
Cons: "Food quality was not so good."
Cons: "We were allowed to choose our seats from SFO to Amsterdam but not for the return flight. I like to be able to choise my seats when I book the flight. Choosing seats 24 hours before is not convenient when traveling for the return trip."
Cons: "Dozens of high school students screaming and climbing onto seats, crew did not intervene."
Cons: "Lost all our bags so couldn’t ski"
Pros: "Friendly and efficient crew. Flights were on time if not even early."
Pros: "The crew!!"
Pros: "They considered my reguest of vegiterian food."
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Pros: "The flight AMS to MEX was smooth, very helpful personnel on board, we enjoyed a bit more space and the seat seemed a bit more comfortable."
Cons: "Besides the seat relative comfort, it did not recline much at all, i wondered what the extra money (at least $5 or $600) got us. The food, wine/ beer service was same as regular economy, the boarding took place at same time as economy, no drink before take-off if only sparkling water. And the plane was old generation 747 and the entertainment was same vintage: screen was not very bright and the selection of films was poor. No plug to charge electronics. We were disappointed with KLM when comparing with other airline companies offerings when you book in Premium Economy."
Cons: "Trouble checking in regarding a visa issue?.. no other trouble at the other airports.."
Cons: "wasn't able to take the flight since I missed it"
Pros: "Very friendly onboard personnel - I really had kind of homy feeling."
Pros: "punctuality of boarding and flight time"
Cons: "attitude of crew in business class: no sense of true hospitality"
Pros: "Food was excellent, frequent and filling"
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable compared to my prior leg of the journey. Unfortunately the bathrooms were not clean, I understand that it's not the sole responsibility of the crew and passengers need to be mindful too."
Cons: "The movie selection did not seem extremely varied."
Cons: "Our two hour connection in Paris became 30 minutes because Air France was late in leaving Washington. So our luggage didn't make to to KLM to Amsterdam. My poor rating was because the luggage handling was really poor. Lots of flights from Paris to Amsterdam (almost hourly), but my bag showed up 12 hours later. My wife's bag took 36 hours. And yes, we checked in together. There were lots of confusing messages"
Pros: "He missed it due to having a 32 minute layover, which he ran all the way to board."
Cons: "he had no choice but to look at the closed door of his flight, and wait an additional 7 hours and they didn't even give him a voucher for food. I'm his mother, I'm currently visiting family in Scotland, so couldn't help him much. I'm pretty disgusting and disappointed by the whole experience."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Super delayed. Could have fixed the issue BEFORE we were sitting on tha plane for TWO hours"
Cons: "Please Endeavour to put the expiration date on the food served in the flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Warm plane with happy staff."
Cons: "Maybe a second sandwich option for food, not everyone likes cheese."
Pros: "Flight was lovely, crew were friendly and very helpful and food was delicious!! We travelled with assistance for mum and it was excellent and we were kept updated all through the flight."
Pros: "The food and the punctuality"
Cons: "The technology in interteiment is not touch screen"
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Pros: "The supplied pack of toothpaste/toothbrush"
Pros: "Got to Amsterdam on time and everything was great including the staff"
Cons: "Not only was there free food but they tried to sell you a bunch of stuff. Not a moments piece."
Pros: "Catering is ok"
Cons: "Seats comfort really old school"
Pros: "Good and plenty of food available."
Cons: "No power to charge phones, laptops, etc and no WiFi available. For such a long trip (10 hours) below industry standard."
Cons: "I requested low fat meals. The first one, was OK. But they forgot my request for the second one."
Pros: "Seat space was good for a short flight, inclusive of free snack and drink."
Cons: "Too much overoverhead luggage."
Pros: "Quick and efficient flight. Crew very organized. Great language skills"
Pros: "Flight was quick, professional, friendly."
Cons: "Since we had two extra bags (paid for in Chicago), they demanded to see my receipt before we could board in Amsterdam to Nairobi. We had trouble locating the receipt and we were not given an explanation as to why we needed it again. We were traveling with 5 kids including an infant and we were not allowed to board until we found the receipt. I thought surely they would have record that I had paid, but I guess not. We were the last to board and all very stressed out. The staff seemed not to care the least in our troubles."
Pros: "Leg room. Smiles of the cabin crew."
Cons: "Not enough selection of Electronic Dance Music. Lol!"
Pros: "Great food and movies."
Cons: "Might have lost my bag. I was told not to claim my bag and that it would meet me at my final destination. That did not happen. I even paid extra because of the over weight. When they charge you 100 extra euro you expect your bag to make it to its final destination."

My luggage was lost during this connecting flight for nearly my ENTIRE 2 week stay in europe, this issue no doubt instigated by my original flight being delayed 6hrs I did not pack my "personal item" with anything of consequence, I had to buy CLOTHES & TOILETRIES TO LAST ME 2 WEEKS

I booked my flight through Kayak. I was not able to make the flight. I sent my passport in for renewal 7 weeks ago. I still have not received it. I couldn't rebook because I didn't know when or if I would even receive it. That would of cost me a extra $500. So I asked for a refund or voucher to book at a later date. I only was able to recover $90 of the $1000 I spent on my flight. How would you feel?

They have made the seats even narrower and tighter fore. Like paying someone a lot of money to torture you. Tall people—don’t mean NBA— can’t scoot down so there’s no seat to support neck. We got sore necks and no sleep. The aisles so narrow now flight attendants are hitting people’s shoulders all the time, spilled hot coffee on me. They probably have bruises. Airlines guilty of human rights violations.

The flight was on time. The flight was rough/ choppy so there was no beverage service. The could of offered bottled water and the cookie or pretzels. Not customer oriented. Cleveland -Anerican Airlines needs to reorganize/ layout their incoming boarding pass and ticketing/bag tag area with a separate customer service area for flight cancelations. It is a cluster! Someone should video tape and send to the funniest video program.

The plane was very late arriving at the gate which made me miss my connecting flight which made me miss my shuttle. I’m very upset and will be calling American Airlines

Newer airplane!

Worst airline experience of my life, depending on how the rest of my “customer service” experience goes I may never fly american airlines again.

Tv on the plain

Cons: "My eyes were watering and my nose was itchy for the entire flight and I had to hold back sneezes and I think there was something in the air on the plane that was causing this to happen. I was double-masking and I do not have allergies. I wonder if it had to do with the chemicals used to disinfect the plane between flights? I was not very comfortable, to say the least. Everything else was great, though, but I don’t think I will be flying again anytime soon."
Pros: "A crew member saw me struggling to walk and offered a wheelchair, explained to me that I would be met with one throughout my trip. Her name was Donna!! Problem occurred when we got to Dallas."
Cons: "Instead of circling in the sky, they could have had the pilot take the alternate route he eventually took anyway, in the first place. My family and I still don’t know if we’re going to get a flight to El Paso/ stand by. So much 4 seeing my armyson before he deploys, recipient time waisted over bad decisions on to of everything else, entitled woman on the plane insults me on the lane for no reason. The crew was amazing though."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, and the entertainment choices were pretty good."
Cons: "By the time the food service cart reached us in row 28 of about 33 or so, my choices for food and drink were both sold out. It would have been less of a big deal if our earlier flight hadn't been so late that we couldn't grab something to eat before boarding."
Pros: "Easy boarding."
Cons: "No usb charger. Flight delayed."
Cons: "The attendants attitude."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "6 hour delay"
Pros: "Great airplane. Enjoy the 2 seat rows."
Pros: "comfortable seats, legroom,"
Cons: "seat recline, food, offer lounge access"
Pros: "The friendly informative team when we learned our plane broke. I switched to Charlotte connection earlier as a Miami one made no sense as Miami is south of Atlanta final destination. We had a different outcome than expected yet staff cared for us."
Cons: "Plane better maintained as before take off a hydraulic part broke and we were grounded . We arrived home hours later than planned because of this."
Cons: "The flight was full. We waited for wheelchair assistance that never arrived until we got to the gate for boarding, after already doing a 20 minute walk to the gate. The crew was snippy and unfriendly. Two lavatories were out of order from the get-go which should have been detected before leaving."
Pros: "My bag was lost!!!"
Cons: "To have my bag delivered"
Cons: "On time"
Cons: "Departing on time...30 minutes late."
Pros: "Very professional and timely. My last six flights with American have been without a hitch and right on time. If I were a business traveler, which I am not, American Airlines would be my go to carrier. Quite satisfied with this airline and have been for a long time. Thanks!"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "I just don’t understand how a flight can be delayed three hours from weather the day before. And, of course, we arrived and there was no gate for us. They had three hours to have a gate ready for us. AA fail!"
Pros: "Newer plane. Standard American amenities. Fast WiFi and live TV channels."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Check in"
Cons: "Missed connection"
Cons: "They charge for coffee."
Cons: "Supposed to leave saturday, but didnt cause the lady at airlines said i need a visa when i did not need a visa.now its tuesday in austrailia and im stuck in airport because quantos doest know where my bags are. This trip is turning or turned into a total disaster!"
Cons: "I have been flying for over 40 years and this American flight is the worst SNAFU I have ever experienced. Rerouted for refuling 30+ minute waits for gates to open, 1+ hour waits for takeoff. Not all of it was weather related. Even the flight attendant is disgusted."
Pros: "Standard AA domestic flight. Once we were boarded and underway, things were fine. Crew was friendly, the aircraft was cleaned on the turn from the prior flight, and we didn't sit on the tarmac too long when arriving at DFW. Normal operations for AA domestic."
Cons: "Unfortunately, normal operations for AA domestic means boarding 20-30 minutes late, which delayed the arrival a bit. In general, AA could provide more accurate updates and boarding information for their flights. For example, if the inbound aircraft arrives at the time my flight should be boarding, I want to see an updated departure time, rather than maintaining the "on time" status right up until five minutes before the new boarding time. Generally it takes 25-30 minutes to turn the plane for the next outbound flight."
Pros: "The inflight entertainment. They had a touch screen with a great selection of movies, music, and TV shows to kill the time with."
Cons: "No peanuts."
Pros: "Crew was nicw"
Cons: "Now pay significant more for carry on bags for another mediocre airline where it is not significantly cheaper."
Pros: "I like the in-flight attendants as they are courteous even though it was late night flight. I cannot complain at all."
Cons: "Gate agent refused to try to put my 9-year-old son to sit next to me. She said "It's full flight" right out of the bat. Well, even if that's the fact of the matter, at least, be kind in responding to customer's inquiry. My son was seated across the isle, same row, but in reality the row was not even straight. And as a little boy, he cannot sleep straight and he has to lean to a stranger's shoulder? Thankfully I got a nice gent who should have sat next to him who were so kind to exchange seat with me. It's all in the attitude.... hopefully my attitude is not as bad :-) But maybe the gate agent was so tired for it was the last flight from ONT, at 1 AM. Bless her heart! Thank you though for your help to get the plane leave on time.!"
Pros: "Like my AA rides > 90% of the time. The usual prob is sketchy gogo service."
Cons: "Nogo gogo"
Cons: "So. Many. Screaming. Children."
Cons: "Plane was dirty and crew inattentive."
Pros: "Short flight, nothing much to say."
Pros: "The crew on both flights to Cancun were very nice!! thanks"
Pros: "Speedy boarding, friendly crew."
Cons: "Seats are definitely cramped."
Cons: "My Chair would not recline it was broken and was crushed every time the guy in front would lay back on his cause I could not move mine!"
Pros: "Smooth flight, on time, good entertainment and food selections."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The gate agent was having a bad night because she did not get a break. I am platinum pro and would not upgrade me because she said I was not on the list but she put 2 people in first who were not even advantage members"
Pros: "Left on time Nice flight attendants Arrived early"
Cons: "Runway time in New York"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and ontime"
Cons: "Flight was extremely expensive."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I selected an aisle seat because I have very bad anxiety and when I got there to print off my ticket I was assigned a middle seat. It was very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Good flight! Smooth landing!"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled without notification."
Cons: "flight delay"
Pros: "Very nice crew. Full meal"

Delay. Long wait in line. Poor communications.

Cons: "Exiting passengers from the rear exposed the entire flight as people had to walk past those seated from the back to front. Great social distancing and we'll done British Airways"
Pros: "No and no."
Cons: "Very crowded in.club class. Way lower standard for business class as compared to the other airlines."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and everything was perfectly on time!"
Cons: "4 hs delay"
Pros: "The flight was on time and landed early"
Cons: "The bags could have come out earlier and the food could be better"
Cons: "I made a mistake in my daughter's surname while booking online, BA refused ro change it at check-in and forced me to buy a new ticket for her."
Pros: "Leg room fantastic"
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: "Direct flights to and from South Africa to USA not via Middle East"
Cons: "Very narrow seats"
Pros: "The crew, the food and the smooth journey."
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: "That the flight was on time."
Cons: "not applicable."
Cons: "Seat was broken. Reclines without requesting. Tray also needs attention. Seat 15C"
Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "Nothing. Pretty good for a short trip."
Cons: "Better business class seats"
Cons: "Delayed, twice!"
Pros: "New Years flight... very special. Great staff and grear entertainment on board"
Cons: "The flight data was not showing... could have been interesting especially on a New Years flight"
Pros: "This was a charter by BA. Airbus A320 with amazing legroom. Was slightly annoyed by them not having coffee ( to wake me up for the drive home) but I suppose I get why they weren’t serving hot beverages."
Cons: "The beverages thing above."
Cons: "Don’t like the business class seating configuration. The entertainment system played up and only worked in half the cabin. They tried to fix it without success"
Pros: "The A380 is roomy with large overhead bins. Its quiet and smooth. Flight was on time!!"
Cons: "It was impossible to select a seat in advance. I could not even get to seat selection at online checkin. It was very frustrating. When I went to BA in London and Los Angeles they said it was responsibility of AA and when I went to AA in London & Los Angeles they referred me back to BA. Why can I not choose seats like on other airlines????"
Pros: "BA in South Africa run a clean efficient airline. Planes are new crew well trained and food is good."
Cons: "Preseating totally random no matter your status. Booked state of my choice well in advance and was presented at the back of the plane on check-in"
Pros: "I liked that we landed 30 minutes in advance for both flights to and back, compared to the other parallel flight via SAA which was delayed 2 hours when we arrived back."
Cons: "I didn't like the cheese roll I asked for as the whole roll and cheese was literally stuck to the bottom and parts of the bottom of the roll were mushy. The staff were professional but lacked personality and seemed a little hollow."
Pros: "I liked the seats that I got. Staff were friendly and it was a comfortable flight overall."
Cons: "There wasn't enough drinks (water etc) coming around after meals."
Pros: "Food was tasty"
Cons: "Was delayed"
Pros: "Crew were helpful, polite"
Cons: "Flight was late boarding and departing Not particularly comfortable seats No free drink"
Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding."
Cons: "The way that the crew (both in economy on right of plane) spoke to, and handled sensitive situations with several of the passengers in a loud and rather rude manner. This is not the British way that I have been accustomed to on previous BA flights, and is rather upsetting. The crew were very abrupt in general, and did not have that seasoned and polite demeanor which I expect from BA."
Pros: "BA moved me on to the Kulula flight without any fuss and gave me a meal voucher."
Cons: "I got to the airport to find that my 19:15 flight had been delayed to 22:15. I hadn't received any notification from BA and still do not know the reason for the delay. The only other option available was for BA to put us on the 20:20 Kulula flight to Lanseria and then shuttle us from Lanseria to OR Tambo. It really is not pleasant to get back home so late on a week night and not even be given any warning or any reason for the huge delay."
Pros: "Cleared Gatwick security fine. Boarding was fine. Departed gate on-time."
Cons: "Got 200 yards from the gate only to park in another stand, the plane shut down and waited an hour for engineers to come fix a ‘communication computer’ error (basically they had to reboot the plane)."
Pros: "Crew were excellent. Very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Boxes under the seat in front took up legroom (but it did ensure good entertainment options). Could have offered some more drinks."
Pros: "The staff was great, friendly, helpful and professional."
Cons: "I thought the food lacked imagination, was skimpy and too hot. I burned my mouth several times. I really do not like having to pay for a booked seat. I have special needs at my age and so booking early is how I typically make sure I can access the bathrooms easily without climbing over sleeping passengers. I picked flight for the price, but in the end I should have stuck with Delta, KLM and Air France and got the extra miles as with seat bookings and only one bag allowance, what I ended up paying did not make it worth it. Oh well, live and learn. Seats were tight, anyone bigger than me would have really struggled."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "My wife and I having to sit in separate seats when there were seats available next to each other. Being charged excess baggage when one suitcase was weigh under weight"
Pros: "All the normal stuff of flying domestic."
Cons: "The way that my brand new suitcase was damaged on the flight and BA just said that handles are excluded from bag damage. Thus, they can do what ever they want with your bag's handles, manhandle it and not take any responsibility. My suitcase was clearly damaged by the way it was handled since i booked it in till i received it again and they just said sorry...there is nothing we can do for you!!! Now that is is poor customer service."
Pros: "Staff was very pleasant. However the airline charges for everything! Coffee, tea, water. As a result it took 1 hour and 40 ministers to get to my row! Everyone had to pay by charge card. A disgrace to wait so long. Greedy leeches."
Cons: "Charged fir water and coffe."
Pros: "I have physical limitations and required assistance stowing overhead luggage and help getting out of seat. Crew were terrific. Wheelchair assistance also great. Travels on my own."
Cons: "Wifi Opportunity to purchase snacks More food/drink service More attention to picking up trash after services"
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."
Pros: "The space on the A380 is nice, comfortable seats, and the crew was very considerate"
Cons: "No between meals drinks (like water, etc.) or snacks left out on this 11 hour flight. The seats are still a bit close together... for the comfort of a long legged man behind me, I was not really able to recline my chair at all."
Pros: "Aside from the typically narrow seats, the service included all the hallmarks of higher-tier service, such as hot towels, cloth napkins, a good meal, and so on. The crew was attentive, as well."
Pros: "Timely."
Cons: "The airplane was really old. The screens wouldn't start for a really long time. Very, very few options for movies and the screen and sound had terrible quality. Food was not really good."
Pros: "Staff was extremely friendly"
Cons: "Seats were too close and comfort was hard for the long flights. I wish premium economy was better explained to one world partners prior to booking so there would be access to better seats."
Cons: "$100 just to choose a seat ? $100 for a 2nd bag? A Kellogg's bar for breakfast? Shame on them."
Pros: "Strong tailwind brought us in 30mins ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Nothing. Was a smooth and friendly flight. Cabin crew were courteous and efficient."
Cons: "Took forever to serve cold drinks and food. Said we were going to have a short flight due to tail wind so they would not serve hot drinks. Mean while we landed at the expected time of arrival."
Pros: "Flight crew"
Cons: "* LHR T3 departure - appalling terminal * Baggage checked in at BA desk but collected to one side because of baggage belt failure * Captain must have known that 2 containers had not been loaded * Arrival at MRS to eventually find that luggage had not travelled on the flight * Inept handling by ground service partner Avia Partner * Baggage re-flighted on following flight and arrived at MRS at 16:00 with Avia Partners only offering to deliver after 13:00 the following day * BA in-flight service badly let down by ground handling at LHR and MRS"
Pros: "Great food. Ground staff were very accommodating."
Cons: "Flight crew attitude. Cramped seating."
Pros: "Everything was good after we finally left."
Cons: "Due to mechanical issues, flight was canceled. Missed a day of our honeymoon as a result. Compensation offered as a result was unsatisfactory."
Cons: "Prague to London flight First I was surprised and disappointed to find out there were so many extra fees. They get you to buy the ticket with a cheaper price and then hit you with all the extra fees e.g. choosing a seat, luggage, food, drinks, you will pay for everything except the flight. The second thing is that when I did go to the BA website on 5 different occasions to pay for my luggage and in order to get a cheaper rate for doing it online before check-in, it gave me a message that the site to do it was not working and that I needed to pay for it at the airport check-in. When I went to check-in at the airport the ticket agent seemed annoyed that I had luggage to check in when I hadn't registered it online. When I told her that the site was down and I wasn't able to do it before hand, she showed no sympathy or understanding. Instead she proceeded to charge me for checking my luggage. It was an outrageous amount of over $80 USD. I have never in all my travels around the world been charged for my luggage. I only travel with one carry on and one medium size check luggage because of my extensive travel. I know charging for luggage may be something more airlines will start doing but I did not think that BA would be one of them. I also would have appreciated some compensation for theirsite being down and not being able to get a discount on the fee because I couldn’t check it online. I am extremely disappointed with my BA experience and will never fly with them again. That is unfortunate for them since I am in the process of traveling around the world for the next few years while writing a travel blog and book. I will definitely publish my review and experience in detail, which I am sure will influence my readers and followers."
