Pros: "Crew is good. Flight got delayed"
Cons: "Food is good."
Pros: "Crew is friendly and polite. The guy at the boarding who made my day after all my nervous story with boarding pass! With his one sentence and sweet behavior the difficult transatlantic trip became more comfortable."
Cons: "In Tbilisi there were problems with boarding pass from Doha to NYC, as they said at desk than I’ll git it in Doha without problems. The arrival was late, wat Doha’s desk they tried to give me boarding oass , but at last sent to the information desk, at that time I had only 1 hr before departure, lazy woman at dest was not so much helpful and friendly, at last I’ve got the boarding and run to the gate as crazy. It was possible to say that I can got it at the gate too"
Pros: "Everything was GREAT!"
Pros: "Service by the crew was outstanding, but special mention to Deepika who made sure I had a Business Class experience out of this world, always smiling and checking if I needed anything"
Cons: "The food and the wine selection did not impressed me. Qatar needs to make some changes."
Pros: "On time. No problems"
Cons: "Internet bad"
Pros: "The on flight entertainment is great. It’s very accommodating especially for long flights."
Cons: "Onboarding was ridiculous. They merged two gates together with no instructions to the large crowd of people boarding the plane. We were scheduled to start boarding at a certain time and we didn’t actually board until 45 minutes later. When we asked the attendants when we would begin boarding and did they have any instructions they were extremely rude, laughing with one another and taking selfies. When we we asked for the third time they brushed us off with a time frame. It was extremely disappointing."
Pros: "I flew Qatar from Doha to NYC and the meal quality and options were excellent. I also enjoyed the amount of new Hollywood movie releases and music options."
Cons: "n/a"
Pros: "Everything."
Pros: "Extra leg room, very courteous crew, and pretty decent food. What’s not to like? I have had only very good experiences with Qatar so far."

Cons: "8 hr layover in Doha"
Pros: "Older plane Older entertainment system"
Cons: "Older plane Older entertainment system"
Pros: "Nothing. As flight was rerouted and airline changed"
Cons: "We didn't like the fact that our flight changed to a diff airline when we paid to fly with Qatar"
Pros: "Food, entertainment options, comfortable seats, warm blankets"
Cons: "My volume did not work well on the entertainment system."
Cons: "carry-on did not fit on center overhead compartment unless I put it side ways (Same carry-on suitcase fit nicely on Emirates airplanes, so the carry-on overhead compartments have been made smaller on Qatar on purpose or by engineering error, and I will not fly Qatar airlines again. Less food options. I went to the Gally and they only had kitkat bars for food. Emirates offer fruit, sandwiches, and many choices at ALL TIMES of the flight for economy class passengers. Entertainment computer (Android based system) ran slow and out of memory at times. Seats were not comfortable for 12hrs flight. My butt was starting to hurt. I did not have this issues on Emirates flights."
Pros: "They do not provide hotel service even in a 11 hour layover saying the ticket is pomotional. If that is the case, why they sell tickets on promotion? Cheap mentality"
Pros: "Need to give people cheap access to wifi"
Pros: "Very comfortable wii sleeping compartment"
Pros: "Comfortable, on time"
Pros: "Leaving that god forsaken airport after hours of waiting in lines."
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "The planes weren't as comfortable as others I've been on like the double deckers of Emirates. Their economy class was NOTHING special. Everyone talks about how superior Qatar is, but I found nothing special about it...the seats, the food, the entertainment were all basic and nothing fancy. The crew, while very sweet, seemed inexperienced and green to me..but they were lovely and that's all that ultimately matters."
Pros: "Excellent service from the crew. Flight on time."
Cons: "Some crews are not accommodating."
Cons: "The food options were good, but twice our family could not get the items we wanted as they ran out of them."
Pros: "Again, the crew were top notch"
Cons: "Comfort and available entertainment were so-so"
Cons: "They announced everything in English and Arabic and repeated the same announcement multiple times. The entertainment is good but frustrating that it is constantly interrupted with announcement about everything. I have never heard that many on any other plane. The announcement about customs paperwork was long and done 2 times in English and 2 times in Arabic. There safety video is soooo long and again is done in two languages. It was just all too much. Besides that everything was great."
Pros: "Food was good for once"
Cons: "They said they would fix the sound on my sons t.v. but that never happened so we had to swap seats and one of us didn't have any onboard entertainment although we asked about it 4 times"
Pros: "same"
Cons: "same"
Pros: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "More movies, no wifi, better food"
Pros: "Good, comfortable and smooth flight. Food was better than expected."
Cons: "Some of the flight attendants seem to be bias towards passengers. Had some loud passengers on one of our flights and noone told them to be quiet. Was also asked to move my seat up so that the person behind me could eat, yet the person in front of me was not asked the same thing"
Pros: "Great airline...nice staff, very attentive and polite."
Pros: "SPECIALLY THE CREW SERVICE EXCELLENT"
Pros: "Service & cleanliness."
Cons: "Nothing I remember."
Pros: "Very spacious, good food & service"
Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "Need to provide more variety for vegetarian food. Cannot serve the same food for every meal on a long haul flight. Provide more entertainment options, more episodes of sitcoms, more movie options, more language options."
Cons: "Check in to the boarding lounge was a bit chaotic and there were a lot of angry customers yelling at airline staff. The process needs to be improved."
Pros: "The crew, they were very pleasant and good about taking care of our needs."
Cons: "The middle console video went out on my husband at the end of the flight, while he was watching a movie. This also happened on the earlier flight from Singapore to Doha."
Pros: "everything!"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!!!!"
Cons: "Again, our flight was cancelled without notification!!!!!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The first flight of my journey was delayed which made me late for my next two connecting flights. I arrived on vacation a day late. Paid for a hotel and activities that I never used. My bag arrived 5 days late. I had to buy clothes on a daily basis which ate up more time and fun money. The airline gave me nothing except empty promises and dismissive apologies."
Cons: "Flight attendants raising shades so that light was in your face. Blocking aisles near bathrooms"
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Time of flight"
Cons: "I am hard of hearing. It would be appreciated it you would offer more movies with English subtitles."

Cons: "None"
Pros: "on time departures,kochi airport is great ,overall a nice trip"
Cons: "the inflight service on the flight from kochi to dubai was not good.staff seem to be hostile,and not at all courteous."
Pros: "I like the food, history, and the people contributing to make this country so beautiful."
Cons: "I wasn’t be able to experience everything in one trip so I have to go back again to fully live the history there."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Fast boarding and unboarding."
Cons: "Crew weren’t very nice. Was hard to get anything to drink! After lunch waited for an hour for crew to collect trays!!!! Soda finished after first half of the flight. Crew collected headphones and blankets 45 minutes before landing!!!"
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "No internet"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was an hour late. Since the airlines only gave us a 2 hour layover knowing we would have to go through immigration and retrieve our luggage and recheck it, we missed our connection, then the airline tried to make us wait another 18 hours for a flight. We had been already traveling for two days. Airline offered no expedited support to get off the plane first or help through immigration, completely unacceptable!"
Pros: "Usual overall great service."
Cons: "They were stingy with the beverages. No sodas until 2/3 way through the flight, and small, infrequent cups of water, all while running an “ad” telling me to stay hydrated."
Pros: "The food was pretty good and the one ICE video center that was working offered a ton to watch."
Cons: "On a 13-hour flight, the video center is your main source of not losing your mind. Truly disappointing when you pay for the extra leg room in an exit row and you can’t watch any videos. Unfortunately, the ICE video center was broken on the way to Dubai also. In addition, the flight crew lets people stand around in front of you which reduces the extra leg room you pay a hefty price for. What’s the point of charging over $700 for this added “luxury” on each of your flights from JFK to Male, Maldives when you can’t use it. Emirates is nice, but didn’t reach the expectations they set."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "EVERYTHING"
Pros: "Live football final game"
Cons: "Cannot think of anything"
Pros: "Seating space in the plane"
Cons: "The crew was quite rude. My flight got cancelled and the next day there was no veg food in the flight. It’s a 14 hour flight for god’s Sake!"
Cons: "Very noisy for passengers sitting by crew area. Crew seats were used very frequently and every time it opened and closed it slammed waking up passengers."
Cons: "Awesome"
Pros: "Beautiful aircraft flight attendants speak 19 languages additional leg room fabulous entertainment"
Cons: "only had jetblue as partner and when my flight had to be changed it presented a huge problem- they need more US partnerships to provide better options"
Pros: "Everything. Staff was terrific and the fancy new screens for in-flight entertainment were really cool."
Cons: "The food was fine. The chicken for dinner was really good. The pizza was mediocre."
Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Great service, good meal and outstanding entertainment channels"
Cons: "No critical comments to be offered"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine"
Cons: "But the next morning I became violently ill and had to be hospitalized. Before we took off Emirates reported they were deciding whether to remove a sick passenger from the plane before taking off, which they ultimately did. I wonder if everyone on the flight got sick."
Pros: "I love business class the best"
Pros: "Everything except boarding and internet"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic they need to have better communications... it was a free for all! I did not at all like the way they make you think you are getting free wifi but in reality it's a hoax!"
Cons: "I've never flown Emirates and boarding section of the trip was very confusing. There was no audible instructions and they used flip-boards to indicate which group should be boarding. It was very difficult to see the flip-boards since the attendants holding them up were around 5'2". All was well once i got on the plane."
Pros: "Business class was great! Service was great!"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "I was amazed to be upgraded to Business class!!! I wonder why. Anyway, the service was amazing, and the staff very friendly and helpful!!! The food was superb."
Pros: "The two checked bag allowance is very helpful - especially for someone who travles for projects, for long times and is on a tight budget. The staff were very attentive. Frequent offers fof drinks to stay hydrated was very good. The seats were large enough to be comfortable. The number of entertainment options was exceptional."
Cons: "The air plane was freezing cold - I could not even be comfortable sitting in my seat with a blanket on. The woman next to me had 2 blankets on. I could not check my luggage when I arrived at the airport. I had to sit with my luggage for 3 hours just waiting to check it. So I could not enjoy the 7 hours I had before my flight - to walk around the city, or even shop in the airport. I could not select a seat when I checked in on line - even though it was 20 hours before my flight. Even though I was traveling alone I could only get a middle seat. There were no non-meat food choices for the meal. We could not hear the announcements at boarding - no one knew what was being said."
Cons: "Better comfort with Airbus 380 but food remains a concern"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Movie selection was good."
Cons: "Not at all accommodating of dietary restrictions. It was a very long flight to not have any options for food, and crew acted very put out when we asked if there were any other options. Checked our carry on luggage for being "too heavy" in spite of the fact that it was the exact same luggage we carried on for the flight out which meets all necessary size restrictions. Boarding was very disorganized, no announcements were being made, flight attendants were simply holding up signs at chest level which were completely blocked by the crowd."
Pros: "The flight itself was great, though it was 4 hours delayed. The interface between Jet Blue and Emirates didn't work."
Cons: "I booked roundtrip flights in two legs, so Jet Blue, Emirates, Emirates, Jet Blue. The two airlines didn't seem to interface. In each direction for some reason, I was unable to check in online for the second flight, which didn't make sense (so Emirates there and Jet Blue back). On top of that, neither could give me boarding passes that would work for the other. The customer service kiosk took about 15 minutes to get this done for Jet Blue in JFK."
Pros: "Great airplanes. Crew is is helpful and kind."
Pros: "So great to still fly with some comfort in this day and age, especially with the awful experience flying American carriers. Great crew, very friendly."
Cons: "Only problem was lots of children running around, screaming, and generally causing commotion. Some Parents did not attempt to calm their children. Might be worth seating families with young children together so they don't disturb older travelers to"
Pros: "Leg space on time"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Front legs little short"
Cons: "I was treated differently, because, I bought my ticket from Kayak and not directly from Emirates."
Pros: "The entertainment system was okay. The cabin crew did the best they could, but did run out of the [honestly very mediocre] food."
Cons: "Emirates' economy cabin is extremely crowded. The food is mediocre even for airplane food."
Pros: "flight attendants, food, nighttime lights, seats, movies"
Cons: "when the PA announcements came over the loud speaker, when i was listening to a movie, was extremely loud"
Pros: "Compared to other airlines, especially trips to and from Europe, this one was great! I will try to fly Emirates every time! I especially appreciated the variety and abundance of choices for entertainment. Eight hours just flew."
Cons: "As far as a reasonably priced economy flight, I can't think of a think. Of course, I'd always like a bigger seat but even those were better than most."
Pros: "Aircraft cleanliness staff everything."
Pros: "Better plane with much better entertainment system. Decent food. Once I had missed my connecting flight because of the flight delay, they promptly arranged for a hotel to stay at, as there wasnt another flight to NYC for 12 hrs. Otherwise I would have been really pissed."
Cons: "First time I have had mediocre crew on an emirates flight. The guy serving my section was not particularly friendly, had a bit of an attitude problem and spent a little too much time chatting up an attractive female passenger. Again, disorganized boarding process. First time I have experienced such terrible service on emirates."
Cons: "Before the flight landed and before an announcement was made to bring seats upright, I was repeatedly poked by a crew member to wake up. This was not necessary since we were not close to landing. Very rude and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Good service on the plane. They pretty much gave you whatever you asked for. No charge for beverages, etc., even alcohol. The food provided was very good."
Cons: "On the outbound flight, the seat bottom was very hard as if the cushion had deteriorated. My behind was killing me very shortly into the 7+ hour flight and I sat on my neck pillow, which wasn't ideal but helped a little. The seat on the return flight was more comfortable."
Pros: "Best airline. Comfortable seats"
Pros: "The attendants were great at keeping the cabin clean and were very goo with the kids. Loads of activities and unexpected surprises that really pleased my kids."
Cons: "More regular offerings of drinks."
Pros: "Food and staff service"
Cons: "Everything was great"

Stay away from flights going through Lome if that is not your final destination. The agents at the Accra airport are also thieves. They held onto my boarding pass for my upgraded ticket which I paid an extra $800; untill I paid $260. for excess baggage, when I was entitled to 3 free because of my upgraded ticket. I could have kept my economy seat and paid only $260, instead I paid $1060!. The agent held onto my boarding pass untill I had paid and had only 20 minutes to clear TSA. Pleasw do not fly Ethiopian Air via Lome to Ghana!!!!. You will regret this very e expensive experience.

Pros: "Excellent service and on time performance."
Pros: "The staff and flight attendants were pleasant. Good entertainment and comfortable enough seats."
Cons: "I wasn't looking forward to the 11 hour flight, however the 4+ hour delay was a significant inconvenience. We were on the tarmac in Abidjan for almost an hour, before we were informed that there were some technical issues. We were told it was a minor issue, until clearly it was a large enough issue as a lot of time passed by. Air stopped flowing so many passengers including myself became uncomfortably hot and dehydrated. The flight attendants only came down the aisle once with water, which was not considerate enough given that the air stopped flowing. Finally close to two hours later passengers we instructed to disembark without mention of how long the wait would be. We re-boarded the flight after about an hour and only then were informed that there was not enough power to fly the plane. Once we took off the air flow returned and the flight overall was pleasant. While safety of course is a priority, especially for a long overnight flight, communication could have been much better."

Pros: "It's very nice flying with them. I will again fly with them"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The food was horrible. My TV didn't work and although I asked for it to be reset several times, the crew kept forgetting. The flight was supposed to be 9 hours, but we left late and it was 11+ hours. I understand things happen, but the crew gave no explanation for the delay or elongated flight. Last, but not least, when we landed in Newark we waited 2 hours for our luggage to come out. We landed at 9:50pm and didn't receive our baggage until 11:50pm. My friend and I were not even the last to get our bags. Overall this was the worst flight experience I've ever had."

Cons: "No assistance at all for handicap person, try to ask for help and was told grab a wheelchair and have your family push you or wait till 530 which my flight would be boardiat that time."
Cons: "United once again shows it’s disdain for customer service and any sort of quality in their product. I don’t think I’ve had flight attendants who were less caring of providing anything more than what David Spade and Chris Farley provided in Black Sheep - “show em an instructional video and throw a bag of peanuts at em and we’ll be there in no time”. United is quickly becoming the - even more so underwhelming - Greyhound of the skies"
Pros: "Great flight attendants."
Cons: "Wifi only available in continental US but even when we got to that point it was still inaccessible."
Cons: "The self- entertainment is really an inconvenience especially when the internet doesn’t work. Babies were crying the entire time. comfort wise the headboard is uncomfortable and annoying."

We missed connected flight to Albany. United gave us only option: morning flight to Washington and then To Albany which is inacceptable option. We took rental car. Also: Workers at Newark do not coordinate. Super Slow and give disinformation."
Cons: "No tv Flight delayed"
Pros: "The flight was nice crew was nice"
Cons: "The fact it took three calls to get chair to the gate my knees and back is not good.. Some places on a flight the airline took one call few min chair was there this was the longest I had to wait and get someone to call and call"
Pros: "Courteous crew. Smooth landing. My only compliant is that we have to purchase in-flight wi-fi."
Cons: "Flight cancelled with no explanation."
Cons: "Heading from BWI to Newark to Boston on 9/29 on United. There were delays at Newark airport which lasted about an hour, and meant that we would be super tight getting in for our connecting flight. We had been told ahead of the departure of the delayed flight that there would be someone on the ground at Newark monitoring the delayed connecting flights, in case a flight needed to be held. Well, we actually landed about 15 minutes before our connecting flight was due to take off. However, we quickly found out that not only were the gates closed early, but the flight tracker was showing the flight had actually left early. There was clearly no communication between on the ground crews, and everyone working at the airport once we landed seemed confused about the situation. By the time we got within eyeshot of our gate, the gate agents were telling us that the Boston flight was already closed. This meant that no one was even monitoring the situation for us, and that they made no effort to hold the plane for the five of us who were supposed to be on that flight. Additionally, that was the last flight to Boston from Newark, so they literally didn't give one iota of care for our situation. I had a 10am wedding to attend that next day, and even after telling the agent this information she still asked me whether I wanted to get on a 10:38am flight to Boston, which made exactly zero sense. After all of this, she ended up getting me on a flight into manchester (that flight had been delayed for 3 hours by this time, and was delayed again after I was booked on it) which landed at 1:24am, a full two hours and some change after I would have landed in Boston, and a full hour away from Boston. Luckily, my boyfriend had his car and was able to pick me up. I finally got to Boston around 2:45am. My suggestion to the airport crews is to actually communicate when you have issues like this. It wasn't our fault, but we were greatly inconvenienced and they did not make an effort to prevent the situation at all. Adding to this, our pilot for that first flight told us that the reason for the first delay was that Newark was congested with too many flights into and out of the airport. THAT is entirely their fault for not being able to properly gauge their own capacity and should not have ended up inconveniencing passengers! I end all this with an additional inconvenience- when I arrived for my flight on Sunday at 4:40am for a 5:55am flight back to DC, I was told that my return flight had been CANCELED. Somehow, in rebooking me on the flight to Manchester. So I had to spend 30 minutes on the phone with United to get that fixed at 5 in the morning and nearly missed my return flight due to crew incompetence as well."
Pros: "I would like to have movies shown during long flights."
Cons: "I do not like satellite TV option. No one seemed to even use it. The internet and the TV are only availlible for certain periods during the flight."
Pros: "The crew was great and loved being able to board first with my baby without paying extra."
Cons: "The five hour delay was insane and unorganized."
Pros: "Boarding Crew Leg room Entertainment"
Cons: "Snacks"
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Lounge in Santo Domingo was very nice. Fair price for ticket."
Cons: "Upgraded to business class for flight home. I had aisle seat last row. Cart left in aisle to keep cabin class from constantly using the bathroom by the cockpit. But they kept coming just pushing the cart aside and rubbing their butts on my arms and shoulders to squeeze by. I understand why they did it. Many times their was a long line and people bothering the guests in business class. I eventually complained and the cart was removed. The attendants really tried hard to minimize the traffic through that section. But to little success."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact I was unable to reschedule my flight due to medical reasons. The ticket I purchased was nonrefundable. I wasn't asking for a refund, I was asking to reschedule due to medical reasons of which I have a letter from my Cardiologist as proof of my condition. I saw my Cardiologist Baxter D. Montgomery, M.D. phone: 713.599.1144 on June 9th and was treated for uncontrolled Blood Pressure. I was advised to reschedule my flight after a follow-up appointment on June 23rd. On June 10th I Called United to reschedule my June 11th flight and was referred to Lowestfare.com at 800.678.0998. I spoke to Albert and explained my situation and was told that I couldn't reschedule. I asked to speak to a manager and spoke to Jane who only confirmed that I couldn't reschedule and nothing could be done. Not allowing customers with verifiable medical excuses to reschedule their flight is a shameful business practice."
Pros: "they gave me a row with all three seats open so I could sleep on the way home on a red eye. Absolutely excellent crew."
Pros: "Economy plus seating for free. Checking in early has its benefits since you get the extra legroom perks without having to pay for it."
Cons: "An hour delay for boarding due to computer problems, but these things happen from time to time."
Pros: "Snacks were good for a short flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and overbooked. It wasnt the first time the flight was delayed. Flight going was also delayed. Attendants seemed to be in a bit of bad mood but were overall ok i guess. It was a short flight so it didnt matter."
Cons: "30 minute flight delay due to late inbound aircraft. Fortunately, we were able to make up for the lost time in flight."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great."
Cons: "My flight was late and I missed my connecting flight. The next flight I got put on was delayed several times. I'm in the military and I was late checking into my command."
Pros: "They changed my flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed but they did put me on an empty flight leaving earlier but never switched my luggage to the new flight"
Pros: "Good legroom. Did not feel cramped"
Cons: "No access to movies because my earbuds would not plug into the hole for them. All food was nasty, inedible. Breakfast so bad even the smell of it polluted the cabin for the remainder of the flight. Just a cold ham or turkey and cheese sandwich would have been preferable. Attention from flight attendants was haphazard at best. Chose this flight because of good flight times but in future will avoid United if at all possible."
Cons: "They kept delaying this flight but not telling us. First it was delayed to 6:50; at 6:51 I asked whether it was further delayed and was told no, we were about to board. Five minutes later the screen said 7:15 (and later, 7:35); at no point was there any announcement about these further delays. They then stowed carry-on luggage below, so passengers lost access to any entertainment in their carry-on. There was no entertainment on board."
Pros: "Easy quick boarding - attendants seemed to watch and keep the misc items from going into the overhead."
Cons: "Being woken up to see if I wanted water or food"
Pros: "Fantastic minus the fact this flight was canceled without any notification."
Cons: "I wasn't notified that my flight was cancelled until I tried to check in online a few hours before. Then I was booked on a terrible next day combination. I had to book with another carrier for $400. I missed out on time and money."
Pros: "The first leg of the trip was very good and no complaints. Food and entertainment-N/A"
Cons: "Perhaps the people who have a tight connection could be allowed off of the plane first. I only had a half hour layover so by the time I got to the proper gate, I had missed my flight and had to wait eight hours for the next flight ."
Cons: "United's inefficient practices resulted in a missed connection for which they did nothing to compensate me."
Pros: "Free new release movies available for free. Pretty good for a domestic flight. Lots of choices to choose from. Staffs were friendly, helpful, and attentive."
Cons: "No spaces left for carry-on luggage, even if I was able to put mine away. I felt bad for those after me."
Pros: "Please do a better job of keeping your customers informed about cancellations of flights in the event of a storm or emergency..."
Cons: "No one try to reach out to me let me know my flight was canceled I had to find that out on the day I was supposed to travel"
Cons: "There seem to always be delays on my united flights. This flight was delayed about 30-45 minutes with no major apologies or some type of compensation from them. Even a food voucher or a free alcoholic beverage would've been nice."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic"
Cons: "I really didn't like how the TVs were running to make you think you could watch whatever you want but then you had to pay. No one is going to pay for such a short flight, it would be really nice to offer it for free."
Pros: "We were upgraded to first class and we made the flight, though we had to run."
Cons: "Running for the flight because the gate was at the end."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact that not only was my flight cancelled but so was its replacement with no explanation."
Cons: "There's no spave at all between your seat and the one in Front of you. I couldn't leave my seat to go to the restrooms without shamefully jumping into the two gentlemen's sitting next to me"
Pros: "Crew was attentive. I liked the wifi option to watch movies"
Cons: "Didn't like that I paid to upgrade my seat for more legroom but another person saw the empty seat next to me moved into it without paying and crew did nothing about it. Also paid $50 extra for priority boarding and security but was informed by the airport staff in Aruba that it didn't apply for that airport. Seats are a little tight"
Pros: "Everything went well. No problems. Left and arrived on time."
Cons: "The service was good, and the food tasty, but not very much. Also, the guy next to me couldn't sit still, but that is not the fault of the airline."
