Anyways on time and excellent service

Considering I cancelled the flight 2 months ago -- I would have to say the communication was poor -- since I continue to received updates. I say poor since Kayak seems not to want to respond to me to reschedule a flight -- they hold my voucher -- so I can not do it on my own --

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I wish kayak gets back to customers .. very poor customer service .. flight delays .. no proper assistance"
Pros: "Business class lay flat seats allow sleep. Staff tries to pamper you with good service. Smooth long flight 10hrs40min and flight left 30 min late and still arrived early 40 min."
Cons: "Online checkin requires passport check at airport so you try but cannot print boarding pass. Online would not let me order gluten free vegetarian meal for daughter, but staff at terminal said oh it is too late now, you need 24 hrs notice... on flight though they figured it out and brought her foods she could eat so it worked out ok."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and willing to assist with everything."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Really old plane with uncomfortable seats and really bad in flight options. The air conditioning was also broken so the entire flight felt hot and muggy, this is on a 12 hour flight!!"
Pros: "Smooth flight without event. On time landing. Efficient deplaning."
Cons: "Newer plane. Seats , entertainment, cabin crew."
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was unbearably hot"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Not applicable."
Cons: "Only one round of drinks served?"
Cons: "Initial delay and then take off delay because slot time had not been updated. Our family missed connections. Disaster follow up in terminal!!! So far far we have been over six hours from check in and are still not through immigration. This for an hour flight."
Pros: "AMAZING CREW! Excellent food, clean bathroom, comfortable, good movie selection. Fantastic experience!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Flight screens showed info"
Cons: "Bring back free food ba"
Pros: "The seat was more comfortable and more leg room than Norwegian"
Cons: "Baggage delayed on arrival"
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "The food, inflight entertainment. Our flight was delayed by over an hour."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Better more comfortable seats"
Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly staff"
Cons: "Very poor movie choice and poor quality screen"
Pros: "We pushed back from the gate about 24 minutes late and arrived at our destination about 38 minutes late. The four-course dinner (Chicken Tikka Masala or Penne Pasta) was good for airline food. The crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "No USB power ports by the seats."
Pros: "Landing and disembarking"
Cons: "Paying $275 to upgrade and experiencing one of worst flights and service I’ve travelled. No water supply for hot beverages, wash hands or brush teeth during eight hour international flight, not given special diet meal requested as crew unable to locate it, Entertainment monitor not working or housed in seat back correctly to adjust angle, remote handset buttons barely working to watch or make selections, unable to call cabin crew who did not visit through cabin for approximately two and half hours as ‘assumed most passengers were sleeping’, no wine choice only Sauvignon blanc and I wanted Chardonnay so had nothing. Breakfast ‘special diet request’ meal was cold hard bagel with colourful lump of cream cheese, which seemed to be what everyone else had. No orange juice, grapefruit that can’t take medication with, so had nothing to drink except allotted splash of water into small paper cup. Dreadful journey"
Pros: "The new Dreamliner made for the smoothest, quietest flight I've ever taken."
Pros: "Good flight. Friendly crew members. We checked our carry on because the flight was full and the attendants said that they wouldn’t have room for all the bags. Checking the bags was very easy and we got to board the plane first."
Pros: "No entertainment and no vegetarian selections in the menu unless you book in advance again the plane was dirty"
Pros: "The Crew were great"
Cons: "Boarding could have been more efficient"
Pros: "Love flying British Airways very pleasant and polite"
Cons: "The seats do seem to get smaller each year"
Pros: "Very comfortable flight , cabin crew were excellent and the food delicious and entertainment was extensive."
Cons: "Only part that was a challenge was the transfer at Heathrow from one flight to the next. While it has improved since my last transit through there many years ago it is still not my first choice when I fly international."
Pros: "Nothing to special comparing with other first class"
Cons: "Boarding process was very late, they made us wait in the cold for 10 min before letting us in the plane. The staff was professional but not too friendly and the place is old. When I purchased the ticket it said it was a airbus A380"
Pros: "Staff are friendly, accomodating for an unaccompanied child with me, upgraded me and helped to support the extra baggage needs"
Cons: "Old, dirty planes with bad enterainment systems and mediocre food and drink offerings. With the price of a ticket more than Emirates, KLM and other airlines, always really suprised the overall crappy hardware, infrastructure on planes etc. When can we get a decent plane to fly the long haul flights. And an actual entertainment system like to competitors?"
Pros: "Flight on time, great crew and generally good service"
Cons: "plane interior was a little "tired""
Pros: "Always 5 stars to the crew and reliability."
Cons: "Seats are not so comfortable or that much leg room in economy. Asian airlines do much better n seat comfort. The entertainment system on this 777 is old and unreliable. Poor viewing aspect and screen resolution. On a 13 hour flight the passengers deserve more for their money."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, there was entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, no specific lines, etc."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "There was an abusive passenger sitting behind me that kicked my chair the entire flight. They were angry that they didn't have more space and that I wanted to have my seat back. I offered to put it up during meal times to make sure they had enough space but that wasn't good enough. The crew knew what was happening and tried to get the other passenger to stop but the passenger persisted. The crew refused to upgrade me even though I had paid for an aisle seat and there were no other aisle seats available for me to move to. I find this service unacceptable. I probably won't be willing to fly BA again as they obviously care more about money than ensuring their customers are comfortable."
Pros: "Crew was professional and good, as usual. Plane was clean and as comfortable as economy class can be."
Cons: "I guess a hazard of being toward the back, but they were running out of food choices. It was still pretty good. Also, my entertainment screen was working only so-so."
Cons: "No wifi on a +11hr flight TV Screen looks horrible. Too old. Didn’t even watch any movie on it. got downgraded from First Class to Business Class because the airline oversold first classs. Shouldn’t happen."
Pros: "Cabin crew was amazing..... didnt mind the delay things happen"
Pros: "Plane was comfy and airport setup was good"
Cons: "The prices of items at airort"
Cons: "Old 747 minimum space in coach. Not a very clean plane."
Pros: "No food or entertainment. Flight was delayed, then delayed more because of gate assignment."
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable and no entertainment on the flight."
Pros: "Pleasant helpful staff, comfortable, clean seat, good food."
Cons: "Having to pay TWICE for extra item of luggage!! Some delay with boarding"
Pros: "Clean only immediately after boarding."
Cons: "1) Toilets too small 2) Toilets after first use by passengers, was not cleansed and toilet supplies like seat covers, etc not replenished 3) Not even enough toilets around."
Pros: "That Pilot has to bring my buggy"
Cons: "Socking wet buggy Head rest in pices Rubbishy in the pockets Staff confused about checked in bag I purchase on different occasion than ticket, took ages to sort it out"
Cons: "Why can't Germany load planes from concourse ramps instead of busing and so many stairs. Frankfurt airport is so poorly designed and how much of my ticket is for buses and bus drivers, etc."
Pros: "What a different experience in relation to last week!"
Pros: "Wonderful customer service and hot meal was a lovely treat!!"
Cons: "No direct communication. Really bad"
Pros: "Cancel my flightthey canceled my flight and provided absolutely no help in getting me another flight. I was left stranded in the middle of Italy"
Cons: "they canceled my flight and provided absolutely no help in getting me another flight. I was left stranded in the middle of Italy"
Pros: "The food and entertainment met our expectations. The crew was attentive and provided good service throughout our flight."
Cons: "I prepaid for 3 seats in the front row of a coach section according to the diagram provided when I paid $75 per seat to reserve them. If I had known we would be placed back a row and not able to be more comfortable I would not have paid that fee. I do feel as though I was scammed for the $225 for reserving the seats."
Pros: "Bording was quick"
Cons: "Crew was serious, absolutely not happy to smile Genuine smile is really appreciated whenmeeting custimers. Food trolley/ drinks came to customers and before we could react it was gone. When we asked them back they were not very happy looking . Seats we not comfortable."
Pros: "Lots of info, arrived 10mins early"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Noise level when people were trying to sleep; seats not too comfortable"

Flight was great!

Long wait for shuttle to get to terminal

The plane was gross. Everything seemed dirty and had black smudges all over it. The plane was older and areas where paint had chipped off (on arm rests or interior panels) was repainted poorly. I don’t expect aircraft to be pristine but I was kind of surprised this one was still in service. The rest of the flight was fine. The plane was just yuck. Thank god they gave us wet wipes when boarding.

Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather, understandable. We deplaned. This was the first short 1.5 hour leg of an international flight. It seemed clear that we would not make our connecting flights, which messes everything up with covid tests, quarantine, and all the many restrictions that airlines have insisted without thinking about the consequences. I tried to share my concern with the agent at American Airlines, knowing that it would probably be better to rebook and start all over for the following week or something. But his limited perspective, condescending attitude, and egotistical control behavior would not listen to me and was only concerned with getting me to the first stop 1.5 hours away. 7hrs later, stuck on that same plane which rerouted and refueled, I am now stuck in a city for 2 days since I had to rebook and start all over for missing my international connecting flight. Still have 20+ more hours of flying to go and nowhere closer to my destination. Hotel, rental, and new covid tests are all at my expense. Just wish American Airlines staff would listen and help, but if you don't shut up and comply to their every demand, they will ban you and ruin your life forever."
Pros: "crew was great"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "All seats were booked, no covid-19 social distancing"
Cons: "Never heard the announcement for boarding resulting in me missing my flight. If it were just me I’d say all my fault but there were 12 people that did not hear the announcements."
Pros: "Amazingly helpful and friendly crew."
Cons: "Affordable fares equates to small space."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Not much other than lower fare"
Pros: "American really exceeded our expectations on both overseas flights on this trip. Good food, nice service, plenty of in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "Average crew. The seat became comfortable after complaining that the one I requested was not noted on passenger request or should I say begging for the request."
Cons: "Listen to the passenger."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and we almost missed our connecting flight, but the pilot was on our side and we made it just in time!"
Pros: "Staff, plane, ride - one of the nicest flights I've had in a long time"
Cons: "Nothing. Well, if you paid me to fly ;)"
Pros: "Someone got sick but the crew helped her right away. An ambulance was already waiting for her. Flight despite this arrived on time."
Cons: "Snacks"
Cons: "The big problem was a 2+ hour delay departing from Ohare. No plane. Came later."
Pros: "Like clockwork. New plane."
Cons: "the fact that they rushed everyone only to have you wait in the ramp"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight got delayed which caused me to miss the last flight for my connecting flight."

Cons: "Took over an hour to get baggage."
Cons: "2 published delays and then another 30 minues waiting to push away from gate. Almost 2 hours late"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Seats and space"
Pros: "On time! That pretty much says it all. I think American did a great job at everything they had control of."
Cons: "Having connecting flights that seem like they are miles apart. I’m sure there is a good reason for this but it is annoying to have to change concourses at these huge airports."
Pros: "The only good thing about this flight was the free plastic cup of water they gave us right before we landed. Thanks!"
Cons: "The stewardess was outright mean! I am disabled and showed up in a wheelchair. The woman had the nerve to ask me if I was really disabled or if I was using it to cut the line. It was really horrible!"
Pros: "NOTHING AA IS THE WORST. This is my 2ND AA experience within a 5 month time period and the first experience i tried brushing under the mat as it was bad however this one TAKES THE CAKE"
Cons: "The airport staff after TSA are RUDE! I was suppose to leave from one destination to another, last night. AA rebooked me without my consent and assumed i would be ok taking a later flight 24hrs later. After hassle, i thought i received a perfect flight which would get me to my destination A WEDDING at that in time. However, i have been rebooked over 5x in under 24hrs and still at the airport from 9hrs later! They do not compensate you and do not even extend the offer!"
Cons: "Last minute cancellation and reschedule if original flight with 20 people hounding the gate for standby status. Craziness. These last minute revisions mist stop"

Cons: "Long wait for clearance"
Pros: "Good service. Early arrival. Fast boarding."
Cons: "No entertainment. Hard seats."
Pros: "Smooth operation, on time"

Pros: "Arrived safely and on time."
Cons: "No power outlets at seats."
Pros: "The plane was fairly new. Video worked."
Cons: "You sold me an Iberia flight and stuck me on American. That's very wrong! Then, I had a screaming infant and didn't get one minute of sleep on an overnight flight. American is so cheap they don't even have ear plugs any more. Seats are too small."
Pros: "Customer service in general"
Cons: "Boading could be smoother. Some customers had a hard time to put a luggage into the upper compartment and blocked a passage."
Cons: "Not a fan of baggage fees especially this high for only one checked. Next time Southwest Air, I guess."
Pros: "The guy at the initial ticket counter was wonderful and took his time addressing my needs."
Pros: "All of the flight attendants were amazing and went above and beyond."
Pros: "Everything was very pleasant for myself and my four year old grandson. Have never had any problems flying with American Airlines. Thank you"

Cons: "When I was flying to Arkansas from NY they didn't give anything to eat"
Pros: "Tvs on last flight"
Cons: "Overnight delay in Dallas."

Cons: "Internet is kinda hard to get connected to sometimes."
Pros: "Flights were on time and smooth. Some of the planes were fairly new."
Cons: "Paid for each bag, on one regional flight the.plane was falling apart on the inside with no padding on the seat, armrest padding coming off the seats in multiple seats."

Pros: "Nothing - never happened."
Cons: "The flight was changed many times."
Pros: "got to my destination... eventually.."
Cons: "boarded us then deboarded bc pilots were "at their hours" (why did you make us board if you knew they were close to their hours). handed out 1-800 number cards to rebook. Had to sleep in the Chicago airport on the floor. American Airlines did not offer hotel, no food vouchers, not even a blanket... very disappointed with how they treated everyone. I couldn't even buy a blanket bc all of the stores were closed. I understand that flights get delayed and things happen.. but at least give me a pillow and blanket to sleep in an airport when you force me to stay in an airport for 12+ hours."
Pros: "nothing. horrible flight."
Cons: "Aweful experience. I waited for hours in the airport because there was no plane available. thank you for wasting my time. No food served on my first class flight. All airport restaurants closed down so no food available and yet American airlines left me stranded and hungry."

Cons: "My flight was changed a few times so I was sitting in the airport for seven hours before I was even informed on which flight I would actually be on. Horrible experience."
