The middle aged white women that think they’re being cheeky are actually just being rude. Feels like I’m just stuck in a room with them for 12 hours. Horrible.
Dirty plane. Crumbs all over seat.
Absolutely atrocious experience. It’s going to be awhile before I think of flying American again.
Flight was smooth and the crew were great, but I ended up getting delayed in Dallas and spending 6 hours in the Dallas airport and they lost my luggage and it never made it to New Orleans.
I liked that The outlets were in front of my seat. The Wi-Fi was not consistent for the music which could have been better.
Delayed 4 hours due to crew. Then it began to rain and lightening. Crew arrived but then flight cancelled due to weather. American Airlines are thieves. No hotel voucher provided.
American is always excellent! I never have problems and everyone is nice
With American airline nothing can go wrong
Lack of information re baggage delays on arrival. I know the airline cannot control the weather but it was chaos in the arrivals area. I waited for 3+ hours with limited information only to be told our bags were still on the plane and to come back in the morning. Seriously? It’s an hours drive each way if I’m lucky, not to mention I have to work tomorrow. Not happy.
Pros: "Me rompieron el equipaje"
Pros: "Lisa Inzerillo is amazing, I don’t know how she kept everyone happy and safe. What an amazing employee she is, please thank her supervisor for such great training and service!"
Cons: "If Lisa was our flight attendant on previous flights!"
Cons: "When you buy basic economy they put you in zone 9 for boarding. When i checked in online, they didnt even give me and my wife seats together."
Pros: "Flight got in early. Boarding was easy"
Cons: "Bags could have been brought onto the plane instead of being checked in. There was space in the overhead bins. The space wasn’t utilized efficiently. It would be nice if there were a few choices for the snacks."
Pros: "Seats comfortable. Plane clean."
Cons: "Air conditioning way too cold. Turning off outlets did not stop extremely cold air. Delay caused by redistributing passengers to move weight. Seemed unnecessary, but apparently it wasn't. Would rather be safe than sorry. when pilot talked, couldn't understand him at all. Slurred speech."
Pros: "The crew was friendly enough and the seat size / storage was typical for standard plane tickets."
Cons: "The flight was extremely cold. Coming from Mexico to LA we didn't have jackets / blankets on us but it would have been very helpful for this flight. Deplaning at LAX was ridiculous. We stood on the tarmac outside the plane inside a glass tube for 20-25 minutes with no information waiting for a bus."
Pros: "The tv and drinks"
Cons: "Being told why we’re delayed and then not being kept on board for so long once we arrived late"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful."
Cons: "Food was passable. Confort was just OK for a 9h flight."
Pros: "Even if we departed with 1h and 30 min delay, the pilot made it up and we arrived with only 15 min delay on the initial arrival time. Great. I could get my initial connecting flight to."
Cons: "Just the stress of getting one message after the other mentioning that the flight was delayed over 1 and then 1 and a 1/2h."
Pros: "The gate crew very efficient boarding Very quick and efficient takeoff No electronic check of boarding passes Flight attendant somewhat responsive. Our luggage was charge 120 twice in a round trip !!!!"
Cons: "Late cancellation. We still haven’t departed Dayton."
Cons: "charged a surprise of $175 for my third bag although Kayak mentioned i should be charged $75 at the time of booking. AA says it is due to Jordanyan Airlines, why was I surprised by this extra charge?!"
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "No entertainment"
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.!"
Cons: "48 hours to get to Philadelphia from Madrid. First flight was cancelled due to plane mechanical problems. Then flight diverted due to bad weather. Horrible flight."
Pros: "On time and clean"
Cons: "No legroom! Felt like a caged animal. No power for my devices."
Pros: "People actually boarded by group number"
Cons: "Sitting in premium economy still doesn't giive enough room to spread out papers and get work done. Out of four segments I only got upgraded once despite having 16 upgrades in my account."
Cons: "Pre-booked Special meals were not catered to. Could have appreciated more friendly crew."
Pros: "Quick and easy thanks"
Pros: "Snacks, meals, movies"
Cons: "Too squishy Flight attendant didn't give us a card to fill out for customs. She just walked right by quickly without asking."
Pros: "The seats on the plane were well covered and leather like that was helpful"
Cons: "The food was horrendous ant the staff unprepared for service . They don't want to be service oriented they want to be your equal they are two familiar and on the edge of rude."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing. By the time groups 5&6 boarded the first groups had not finished and there were no longer any lines to control the crowd, just people trying to get on board to assure overhead cabin space."
Pros: "Prompt and effective"
Cons: "limited space and comfort for such a long flight."
Cons: "Will probably never choose to fly with American Airlines again."
Pros: "Good customer service, friendly stewards and stewardess."
Cons: "No negative actions. All positive."
Cons: "Seat would not recline. Normally wouldn't be an issue, but it would have been nice to be more comfortable on a 9 hour flight."
Cons: "Seats that are smaller and more cramped than even the customary seats on domestic flights. The "breakfast" constituted yogurt and was served literally 42 minutes before we landed."
Cons: "Terribly uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Newer Aircraft had a little more legroom than I have seen in the past. Complimentary entertainment was excellent. It made the time on the ground and in the air go by quickly (even on this short flight)."
Cons: "Time on the ground waiting for takeoff. We spent more time on the ground than in the air. But that is more the congestion at the airport than the airline."
Cons: "Airline had no gates at destination and made us sit on board for an hour after landing. Should have been protactive and found air stairs to disembark instead of forcing passengers stuck on hot plane."
Pros: "Equipment was an A330. I was seated in Row 11 and had priority boarding. As a result, I had considerable leg room and not trouble finding overhead space. Seating in the back has several inches less "pitch" between seats. A330s provide a very smooth ride."
Cons: "Food: Salad was good, you could taste the arugula. Chicken, once you scrape off the barbecue sauce, was decent. The rest of the lunch did not seem worth eating. The best option if you are hungry is to either eat in the terminal or bring something you do enjoy with you. The movie selection had nothing you likely have not seen already. Be aware that sometimes PHL moves slowly. We waited over 5 minutes for the plane door to open. Bags took about 40 minutes to come up. There were no lines at immigration. Connecting in less than 2 hours can be iffy."
Pros: "The crew tried and did as good a job as they could with what they had to work with."
Cons: "The shuttle transportation didn't give me any information about baggage claim, took me 45 min to find the right baggage claim! So frustrating."
Pros: "I had to fly at 11:19pm I had a delay flight leaving at 2:00am . The flight was change from Lima to Miami and from Miami to Chicago not to Dallas"
Pros: "On time and efficient. Reasonably comfortable by the (appalling) standards of modern airlines."
Cons: "The entertainment systems were old and poor. Only a few terrible movies to choose from, and my wife's screen came going dark for long intervals."
Cons: "Live Tv CNN did not work"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Small plane"
Pros: "Left on time arrived at destination early"
Cons: "Stewardess didn't smile was abrupt impatient"
Pros: "Service and friendliness"
Cons: "Person sitting next to me smelled awful. Several passengers asked to move because of how awful the smell was. This individual should not have been allowed to board for basic sanitation reasons."
Cons: "I was delayed for an hour leaving Tampa and my connection in Charlotte was canceled. So I did not get into JFK until 12:15 in the morning. I asked for a food voucher from American in Charlotte and was denied after waiting so many hrs in Charlotte to get on a 10.05pm to jfk, that was terrible."
This flight was great as I got the three seats to myself.
Again this is an airline problem but our flight was delayed 7.5 hours and we sat on the plane at the gate for 2.5 of those hours.
The crew on this trip was incredibly rude and dismissive. Never experienced anything like it in 35 years of flying. This was also the general consensus of everyone around us.
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: "The crew was super friendly and amazing at an incredibly tough and tense time due to the Coronavirus outbreak. A very stressful and long flight was made a bit better and I truly thank you guys for that."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and willing to assist with everything."
Cons: "The least comfortable and smallest narrow business class seats ever"
Pros: "Overall good flight"
Cons: "Free snacks and drinks"
Pros: "great crew great seats great entertainment great pilots great food and the greatest airline in the world"
Cons: "free wifi"
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: "British Airways did not correctly issue ticket to American Airlines and we have to wait another day before departure. Resulted in my loss of monies on various reservations"
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: "Flight from heathrow to Manchester stopped it being excellent alll round as flight delayed over an hour"
Cons: "Baggage delayed on arrival"
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "The food, inflight entertainment. Our flight was delayed by over an hour."
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."
Cons: "I cannot even begin..."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Flight was delayed several times and the plane was really old, thought they would have something better but the staff did what they could to accommodate passengers."
Pros: "Friendly crew, flight on time, great food and snacks, good movie selection"
Cons: "Seats not too confortable, landed on time but got to the gate 45 mins after landing"
Pros: "Very good hot food included - this is the British Airways I used to know! Not a big fan of the mayonnaise sandwiches, however..."
Cons: "The fact that my husband and I were not seated together - it should be straightforward that tickets booked together should be seated together! Also, this zone boarding system is really inefficient. Just board from the back of the plane in logical chunks!"
Pros: "The Crew were great"
Cons: "Boarding could have been more efficient"
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: "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: "The room on plane to Heathrow, wouldn’t know about way back considering I had to rebook onto Air India..."
Cons: "Just the fact that BA decided to hold us in UK for 6 hours to get their full pay and the fact that Heathrow ground crew had not enough de icing equipment and resources were at an all time poor response. Three hour lines for checking on status of bags, status of flights, unable to book a hotel through BA and got nothing from them. I didn’t enjoy freezing and staying there in Heathrow freezing... plus I didn’t fly this flight home due to fears of them not being able to handle a coating of snow versus what loads of snow we recieve in the states. I had to take Air India home to the US AND HATED IT... thank you BA and especially Heathrow Number one for lack of response and total irresponsibility..."
Pros: "On-time/early arrival, relatively communicative staff who also provided timely service. Bags delayed upon final destination."
Cons: "Seating became uncomfortable after so many hours. Boarding times long. Staff was at time over the top with their checks."
Pros: "Seated at front window seat where one can be overlooked, friendly attention and service by attendant was assured and most appreciated. Please thank her!"
Cons: "Seated at front window seat where one can be overlooked, a few times I was overlooked by same other attendant. No kudos for him."
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: "The crew apologized for the late departure"
Cons: "We were left waiting for the technical issue to be fixe for more than an hour"
Pros: "Pleasant helpful staff, comfortable, clean seat, good food."
Cons: "Having to pay TWICE for extra item of luggage!! Some delay with boarding"
Pros: "Service, efficiency, speed, accuracy, attentiveness."
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: "Although they left late , they made up for it and arrived only 5 min late. Although a huge plane, the boarding process worked out fine. Service was good and entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "Food could be a bit better,"
Cons: "Food. Choice of chicken or vegetarian curry. And the chicken ran out - so no choice other than vegetarian. Who designed this ? The breakfast had 2 choices that were not vegetarian.... Lounge. I have an American Gold card and a United gold card. All United partners allow use of their lounge. BA does not. Will fly United partners in the future. Coach seats are unreasonably small for international flights. Small than competitors"
Cons: "Huge disappointment - food was inedible and on our connection we had to pay even for water. Huge drop in service and I've flown BA for years."
Cons: "Never again will I fly with this airline! Had a horrible flight , food, service going from Chicago to Athens with portion of the plain empty and same thing again back."
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent. Attentive and amusing."
Cons: "I hate that the armrests don't raise up only halfway, so if you happen to luck out and have an empty seat next to you, you will can't lie down comfortably."
Pros: "Waited on us hand and foot! Every crew member I had contact with was super nice and professional. Would definately reccommned!!!"
Cons: "Crew was pretty unfriendly! There was no food served and no in-flight entertainment although the flight was 4 hours! Worst airline I have been so far! They need to learn alot from other airlines such as American Airways or Turkish Airlines!"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Noise level when people were trying to sleep; seats not too comfortable"
Pros: "Extra leg room in premium economy"
Cons: "Service poor relative to global peers, food mediocre, entertainment system totally outdated"
Cons: "Was not able to check in through to Cape Town, only JNB. When arrived in JNB, British Airways flight was not clearly identifiable from ticket (no flight number). Then the flight was delayed, and plane was old! Horrible experience"
There was no entertainment like there had been outward bound. I did have my own though. It was cold in the cabin. Hate ac on at 16C! Why travel in a fridge ?
This flight took off a bit late but was comfortable. The onboard service was excellent!
Choice of food ran out before trolley reached the back of the cabin. Not enough toilets. Tight leg room
The staff is very overzealous with mask enforcement
Boarding was done way too fast compared to other flights, food/beverage service was minimal (water only), attendant was helpful, flight was timely departing and arriving
Cons: "Ensure parents are being honest about the ages of their children. Couple next to me had a wailing, thrashing, kicking, screeching, punching 3 year old who should have had her own seat instead of sitting on her parent’s laps for the duration of the 5 hour flight."
Pros: "The funny crew"
Cons: "Softer landing"
Pros: "Flight convenients"
Cons: "Small plane .. I’m a y’all person.. warning when booking ticket"
Cons: "flight was over two hours late because of a late incoming plane. That may be for good reason, but we weren't told until less than one hour before takeoff. It doesn't make sense that the airline just found out one hour before takeoff that the flight was two hours behind. We should have been told sooner about the delay, while we had other choices of alternate flights."
Pros: "The staff was amazing made you feel really confident!"
Cons: "Boarding was horrific I paid for insurance my seat was in the middle of 2 HUGE guys and I'm 6'4...I thought my insurance would give me some kind of courtesy boarding/seating!"
Pros: "FAST TURNAROUND OF LATE ARRIVING INBOUND FLIGHT"
Pros: "I liked that it was a fast flight arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Seating was crowded."
Pros: "Attendants were great"
Cons: "Needle point lady sitting next to me used more room than I'd would've liked. The upgrade wasn't much of an upgrade, guess I'll have to see what aircraft I'm on before I pay the extra for little comfort."
Pros: "I was able to make my flight."
Cons: "Crew were not friendly or helpful while boarding."
Pros: "This was an average flight on a small, cramped, RJ/CRJ. There was nothing special about this flight and this review is only to stop the over abundance of emails Kayak sends you begging for a review...."
Cons: "Please read what I wrote above."
Cons: "Crew remained their usual ignorant, uninterested , back-of-the-plane kitty party groupies"
Cons: "The plane was absolutely filthy. The window was had a coating a head grease and dirt. It was disgusting."
Cons: "Flight attendant on first flight rude overall to all passengers, second flight they were good. Not one complimentary television station."
Pros: "Boarding process was quick"
Cons: "Should serve food on flights over 4 hrs"
Cons: "I didn't realize how you can no longer be accommodated without being charged for everything."
Pros: "Easy in/out of the plane."
Cons: "The waiting area was not clean. Flight was delayed by 3 hours and another 30 minutes in the airport. I missed my lunch and wanted purchase something from the menu but the crew said they don't have anything but snacks. The entertainment wifi wasn't providing anything."
Pros: "Had a complimentary drink given to three of us because some rain water leaked in as passengers were boarding the plane. The staff was excellent beyond that!!!"
Cons: "Our flight was late leaving and for some reason when I checked in on my phone it said I needed to see an agent for my seat assignment"
Cons: "Had to pay for wifi in flight."
Pros: "5.5 hour flight and no movies to watch. Had to pay $8 if you wanted to watch anything. Whyyyyyy??? I couldn't even watch the flight path without them wanting me to swipe my credit card."
Pros: "Plane was a little roomier than the A230"
Cons: "No audio or v ideo on almost 5 hours flight to Phoenix. Plane was full and seats very tight on A230. The return flight to Newark was no better. Tight connection thru Houston. DIRECT TV did not work on the 737800. Many of us had connecting flights, flight attendants should have announced that people who without connecting flights to remain in seats while those of us with connections deplanned. Seat did not recline"
Pros: "My mother was the one that flew. But after intense interrogation she divulged that the planes were on time and employees pleasant. Nothing stood out good or bad. Just the way a flight should be, in my opinion."
Cons: "Good trip good service"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Check in was terrible"
Cons: "Overall fine, overhead space ran out for group 5"
Pros: "We loved the convenience of booking a United Flight through Kayak. Planes were clean and no delays!"
Pros: "I liked that the crew tried their best to make sure that everyone was happy. Key word was tried"
Cons: "Everything almost we was delayed by almost 3 hours. Crew members kept giving us false hope for no reason"
Cons: "The $25 each way for piece of luggage"
Cons: "TINY seats! I'm 5'11 and I had a hard time being comfortable and I find it incredibly unfair to have to now pay more for the exit row??? The person in front kicks back their seat and suddenly the TV screen on the back of the seat is in my lap"
Pros: "Very helpful crew, comfortable flight I was alone and everyone was helpful all around"
Cons: "Did not get a receipt/mail of booking, had to call to make sure the flight was actually booked."
Pros: "I got all my steps I while waited. Was rebooked on an American airplane for my connection on Chicago"
Cons: "Over a 3 hr delay in leaving Flont"
Pros: "Crew friendliness"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess with an adjacent gate exiting at the time of boarding creating a melee of people crossing queues. You have a carry-on baggage policy - stick to it. I wasn't carrying any roll-ons or large items but many of my fellow passengers were carrying multiple items in the hope of either getting them on or having them checked for free. Complete shambles with later boarders running up and down the aisle trying to fit their carry-ons into overhead lockers. Solution: Enforce one item only; Apply free checked items at the gate early. Apply a fee for items that don't fit and were not offered up for checking."
Pros: "Price we paid was excellent."
Cons: "It was just my wife and myself and we didn't even get to seat together. They want extra for being able to select your seat in advance. Food was terrible. Seats recline probably 2" at the top of the backrest so no comfort there at all."
Cons: "They gave me the last seat in the airplane"
Pros: "The friendly and comfortable atmosphere!"
Cons: "PHX is a large airport, and my emailed ticket said Brussles Airlines, Terminal 4. First off, Brussles Airlines is not a carrier at PHX, and secondly no one knew that United was their partner. There was no information provided to me to go to United, which was in Terminal 2. After making a phone call to Brussles Airlines, I ended up getting to the check in gate ten minutes after boarding started. It was a lovely rest of the trip after that though! But please include partner information im the email next time!"
Pros: "Even though it was a long miserable flight with no entertainment at least the crew attempted to move me to another seat the plane was full so it was either stay where I was or go to a middle seat"
Cons: "Maintenance should be done especially on minor things like headphone jacks on Long flights passengers pay for those upgrades pretty frustrating when they do not work"
Pros: "Lots of turbulence"
Pros: "The O'Hare bathrooms, which I shaved in? Everything else about the flights and the airports were awful, like of course"
Pros: "Flight departed and arrived on time. Flight attendants were courteous. Boarding was quick."
Cons: "The plane was delayed quite some time and we sat on the Tarmac for about 40 minutes too long."
Cons: "My seat cushion was not in correctly and very uncomfortable. Movies were free on my last flight and coat money on this one."
Pros: "Friendly steward, boarding staff very good , no delay"
