Was good for three songs and kept freezing and throwing me out. Was happening to other passengers too. It was very frustrating."
Pros: "flight departed Jhb on time and arrived in Istanbul a few mins earlier than scheduled"
Cons: "1.cabin temperature varied from cold to very warm 2.I asked the cabin crew for a blanket but they forgot about it 3.I ordered a whisky with ice - was given half a tot with 2 small blocks of ice 4.only one person was serving drinks and food on my aisle so it was very slow service (other aisle had 2 crew serving)"
Pros: "Flew JFK to BOM -business class and back. Very impressed. Excellent service, food and punctuality."
Cons: "Rude reception staff at the Istanbul Turkish airlines lounge. Scowling all the time, unhelpful, condescending attitude. Should be fired. The lounge however was huge, beautiful and had excellent food."
Cons: "I am still in Chicago - waiting on airline decision if I can have my emotional support puppy with me - had to change flight and for change pay $650 - and cen can not cancel and get my money back - whole think is a horrible experience - and still waiting on their Thais decision"
Cons: "This was the worst I have ever experienced. My flight arrived into Istanbul and 45 minutes until the departure I was told it had already left. I later found out something very similar had happened to a man from London, a couple from Boston, three people from Ghana, and many more that were taken advantage of in an attempt to sell tickets for them to go home. Never in my life have I seen such corruption first hand in a business that claims to be professional. I travel with them roughly twice a year so I'm not really a huge spender when it comes to their service, however I have suggested many to use their airlines. Never again will I make this mistake, and never again will I fly with them. I think I would rather spend the few extra hundred dollars than to have to experience that again. Turkish airlines you have lost my service and my respect."
Cons: "They didnt care about the damages caused to us"
Pros: "No complaints about the plane, staff etc and its probably no worse than any other airline"
Cons: "Long overnight flight in Economy Class, little legroom. As I am larger than average and find it hard to sleep on flights, the cramped conditions were extremely uncomfortable"
Pros: "Better of most European airlines.. nice enough lounge and inflight service pretty good with room to improve for sure."
Cons: "Boarding was simply chaotic where staff isn’t managing the queue well separating business and economy. At arrival baggage priority meant nothing. Half the non priority bags arrived way before a massive batch of priority bags arrived. Defeats the purpose of giving your guest fast track immigration !"
Cons: "Last minute gate assigned and then changed"
Pros: "Plenty of options for entertainment. Enough room to be comfortable in economy."
Cons: "My suitcase was lost. The crew were less than helpful on flight. Food choices were limited. Boarding process was chaotic and unorganized. Flight left an hour late."
Cons: "I miss the turkish delights they used to serve"
Pros: "I'm 6 ft 2. Legspace was adequate, and no silly boxes under the seats like other airlines that obstruct your feet. Great entertainment systems - modern, good selection. Food and staff excellent."
Cons: "Their online checkin systems could operate a bit more smoothly. At one point, I had to go in in person, because the online checkin site had an already past flight from their codeshare partner SAS showing up as the next flight, and I couldn't perform online checkin as a result."
Pros: "Food was fine"
Cons: "delay time and Istanbul airport"
Pros: "Everything was exellent"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The issue of excess baggage. Would appreciate to buy on line before my flight so that I know how much to carry and also that I am covered before leaving home. Payment at the airport may be too costly as well as unreasonable. It's like a penalty for having excess luggage. This is the reason I prefer flying with EMIRATES because they afford me to but pay fir excess luggage before my departure. Planning ahead is key"
Pros: "I like Turkish airlines. I was able to go on a City Tour and try Turkish cuisine provided by the Turkish airlines. I wish you distribute loqum (Turkish delight) on board like you did couple years ago. Turkish, you are the best! Thank you!"
Pros: "The flight was quite comfortable. We lucked out with only a partially filled flight leaving extra space to sleep. Service was friendly and the food was excellent! I was fed twice on my 9hour flight and once on my 4hour flight. Great in flight entertainment."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "excellent service, nice crew, seats are comfortable no complaint on that front Airport check in crew very professional attitude and cooperative I had no glitch whatsoever the whole journey starting in Los Angeles Luggage was promptly taken care of upon arrival"
Cons: "Honestly I have no negative comment to mention All went well I would fly Turkish Airlines again and again"
Pros: "Turkish Airlines generally has great personal entertainment systems for their passengers."
Pros: "Everything was great, service,food....."
Cons: "Nothing to mention"
Pros: "The tv because I got to watch a couple of movies"
Cons: "The crew did not know what they were doing. My grandmother needed a wheel chair and the lady who took her did not allow any of us to stay with her , mind you my grandmother can't speak English. The lady also told us that she didn't need the passport or her boarding pass ??? Because of that my grandmother almost got lost , we had to wait for her for an eternity. She got very scared and very upset for what you guys did . She is an old lady and it was one of her worst experiences of her life"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful,seats comfortable."
Pros: "Our 11.5 hour flight took 16 hours due to weather in Chicago. We were forced to land in Detroit for over 2 hours. The crew smiled while they answered questions and dealt with some very difficult passengers. The food was Turkish, but very tasty and in large portions. The entertainment included several movies that had just recently been released to DVD. Overall it was great service."
Cons: "The communication was not what it should have been. While in Detroit, we were often left for extended periods of time with no update or information as to when we would be able to complete our flight. I realize they were at the mercy of O'Hare, but they should have made some announcement every 15 minutes or so just to "keep us posted" if nothing else. Also, there was quite a bit of confusion for passengers whose final destination was Detroit. I had to explain to the Flight Attendant that they needed to explain to the passengers why they couldn't deplane there. She phoned the pilot and he provided an appropriate explanation. This really my only complaint."
Cons: "Had a nine hours layover and I couldn't even entre the Turkish airlines lounge. The airport in Istanbul also had terrible wifi connection. I would not fly this route again"
Pros: "Food and Crew"
Cons: "The fact that the boarding was by bus and not through a sleeve detracts from the process."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "Food was so so. Turkish offers free excursions into Istambul for passengers staying over 6 hours. The excursion departs at 12p.m. This flights arrives at 11.25 a.m., but the lines in immigration are stupidly long. We arrived at the counter at 12.15. In a very unfriendly way, they explained the excursion had left, and no possibilities for joining it in Town. So, we were stuck at the airport for several hours. How stupid is to offer an excursion to passengers in layover, but program a flight with 300 passengers to arrive just in time to miss the excursion? Somebody has to think this over. This excursion should leave at 12.30, and it would avoid dozens of passengers stuck and unhappy."
Cons: "the kosher food was poor"
Pros: "Food is excellent, staff great."
Cons: "Not nearly enough leg room for an international flight!!"
Pros: "Nothing, will never use this airline again."
Cons: "Worst customer service. Very uncaring and rude. Worst airline I have seen and I have traveled with many. Had doubts about using Turkish and a little less expensive ticket turned out to be the most expensive in many ways. Went to the gate 17 minutes early and the agents and the plane was there but was refused entry and was lied and told to go to gate 215 and missed the flight even though there were empty seats on the plane. Asked for help at the other gate but was given the run around and ignored by everyone and told to go to gate 214. After I went to gate 214 was told to go to customer service lower level. Turkish airline supervisor Mustafa Bogaz at Istanbul customer service held a grudge because I was upset and yelled at one of the supervisors and he told Mustafa and everyone not to help me and wanted to get back at me and said penalty in front of me to the customer service member I was speaking with. Mustafa lied and would not put me on a connecting flight and said I had to pay penalty and wait 24 hours. Told me to go to customer service outside the airport and would not call them after I told him I was ready to pay for a connecting flight and could not wait 24 hours and needed to go to work. Even though an American citizen was told needed a visa after waiting 1 hour in line and had to pay to exit the airport. The machine didn't work and the credit card was refused. Got stuck at the airport for 24 hours and missed work and a family event. Turkey is a hell hole and nothing works. Will never visit again. Mustafa 6 hours later was still holding a grudge and told another customer service member in Turkish in front of me to lie to me and say there was no emergency aisle seat available for the flight the next day. Got an emergency aisle seat the next morning when Mustafa wasn't there. Everyone in the customer service team including other supervisors took Mustafa's side and would not help me and lied. Everyone had no compassion and held a grudge."
Pros: "Entertainment system is excellent, food is solid and plentiful."
Cons: "I've flown Turkish a few times before, and they're generally pretty good for the price. This trip was different. Despite Turkish Airlines policies outlined in their "Customer Rights," I received no notification that the flight was delayed 3 hours, and there was no notification at the JoBurg airport until you go to the counter to check in. JoBurg staff - which are Menzies third-party contractors, not Turkish staff - were disorganized, uncommunicative, and unhelpful. Only one person at the check in desk seemed to have authorization to make any changes, so all other agents were running back and forth to speak with him, and not communicating with passengers. It took over an hour to get clarity on the situation and rebook my connecting flight to Washington for a different flight 8 hours later. The only compensation offered was one meal voucher worth R100 (roughly $7). They would not even look at other Star Alliance flights for early arrival in Washington, and said they were not authorized to consider upgrading my ticket. When I called the Turkish customer service, they essentially said "What do you want us to do about it? You have to submit a formal complaint." Boarding was totally disorganized. In theory there are boarding groups, but after business class and all the high-ranking loyalty members, it's pretty much a mad rush. This seems to be the common practice for Turkish now. In general, Turkish has a great entertainment system on all their long-haul flights, with tons of movies - including very new releases - music, games, etc. They also provide complimentary kits with socks, slippers, eye mask, earplugs and dental kit, even for economy passengers. The meals are fairly good for airlines. However, legroom in economy isn't great. I'm 6'1", and had difficulty getting comfortable with my knees jammed into the back of the seat in front of me. On this particular flight, I was in row 18. The cabin crew were frantic, disorganized, and shouting to each other across passengers. One half of our row was served the meal, and the other half had to wait over 30 minutes to be served for some reason. By that time the vegetarian option was no longer available. Crew also had to run back and forth between service carts because they were frequently out of very common beverages (like sparkling water. And ice.), and on two occasions crew left a drawer from a cart full of trash sitting in the aisle. There were several times that crew ran carts into passengers - including once into my knee that was not in the aisle - and didn't even acknowledge doing so. They also stopped the carts in front of occupied lavatories, temporarily trapping passengers. So not terribly professional. While not specifically on this flight, the experience in Istanbul airport with Turkish Airlines' staff was awful. Zero interest in helping, rude and dismissive, and overall terrible."
Pros: "I left my iPad in the seat back of my previous flight to Istanbul and by the next morning they had my iPad to me and Hungary! Very professional!"
Cons: "The flight attendant was kind of rude. They ignored what I would say when the drinks came around. Also, one of them would try to hurry me and always tap on my shoulder instead of just saying "excuse me""
Pros: "Very comfortable. The best flight i ever had."
Cons: "There was a problem with conecting the headphones. The chicken dish wasnt good."
Pros: "Comfortable, tasty"

Cons: "Always delay flight"
Cons: "Bigger seats the new ones are way to narrow"
Pros: "Services is good ."
Cons: "Food can be better"
Cons: "Transavia does not serve anything complementary, not even water. A flight between two countries that is five hours long must be better than this. I was not aware of Transavia doing that before I booked. I will never fly with them again"
Pros: "The socks offered in business were comfortable and nice looking. The red wine was good."
Cons: "The food was just average and the seat not too comfortable"

Pros: "Fantastic gate agents!"

Cons: "1. In Flight Entertainment 2. Controlled In Flight Temperature"
Pros: "The crew is really welcoming"
Cons: "The seats are too narrow and a bit too hard"
Pros: "Crew was very engaging and service was good."
Cons: "My seat was horrible. Right at the door, crammed, and no place to store my carry-on luggage."
Cons: "This return flight was much better than the flight going to Amsterdam. I believe the biggest factor was the type of aircraft. The old 747 just didn't meet expectations. The newer 777 on the way back was much more comfortable, with better amenities."
Pros: "The crew are amazing! Attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The seats could have been bigger."
Pros: "Cabin facilities"
Cons: "They didn’t bring one of my bags"
Pros: "The crew was great but the seat wasn't as comfortable and didn't have much leg room."
Cons: "I bought tickets thrue you for me two months ago Iit went well but on the last few days I also bought ticked for my brother and his wife and it was a disaster night mare for them bound for Montpellier too to attend a wedding the damn suitcase didn’t get to final destination it was at Orlando but got"

Pros: "Lovely crew, very helpful"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Pros: "Smooth and faster than expected trip. I felt free to get up and walk around on this long flight. Food was good. I sat in seat with extra leg room for the first time and it was worth it"
Cons: "Too much light in the cabin because of too many screens on. Should have a separate part of the cabin with screens off allowing one to sleep more easily."
Cons: "I ordered Wheel chair for my parents but one of them didn't get it at all. When my parents were checking in for flight they asked the representative about meal selection and she didn't answer their questions properly and because of that my mom didn't get proper Hindu Vegetarian food on flight instead she got Egg omelet which she couldn't eat. She has to eat just fruits. My mother is a diabetic patient and she needs a food every after some time. I never had such a bad experience before with any other airlines."
Cons: "I’ve traveled a lot internationally and this was the WORST flight I’ve ever had to endure. I felt like I was being tortured and didn’t sleep at all and so slept when getting into Amsterdam rather than being able to explore the city. I was out $200 for the Airbnb (could’ve stayed in the airport cheaper) and $200 for a dinner cruise I slept through. NEVER AGAIN"
Cons: "Our lougage did not arrive"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Efficient crew"
Cons: "Long, slow line at check in. Not many new movies or tv shows"
Pros: "The crew was efficient. Flight left on time. Food and wine served."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "The seats seemed to have more space on this plane which was nice."
Cons: "It felt strange that the crew members completely skipped over me when serving lunch and drinks. At least something as basic as water should be given to all passengers."
Cons: "Didn’t happen."
Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."
Cons: "Our total flight time was about 17 hours - MAD- AMS-LAX. My husband and I both have an internationally approved carry on luggages with us. When we checked in - they asked us to both check in our carry on luggage. The reason why is because they said they don’t think they have enough space for our carry ons. I told the crew member checking us in that other people that was checking in with the same hand carry size luggage with us had no problems taking it with them. For being about to be on a 17 HOUR FLIGHT we should be ALLOWED to have our carry ons with us! We take carry ons for that reason! I had to argue and prove my case to the crew member to atleast keep 1 carry on with us. I thought that was an UNACCEPTABLE reason for us to check in a carry on luggage when we had a 17 hour travel time ahead of us. Not a happy costumer here."
Pros: "The crew were hardworking, responsive, conscientious and friendly"
Cons: "Really poor entertainment choices esp compared to my inbound AirFrance flight. Boarding was pretty disorganized and late."
Cons: "Unaccompanied minor flying to Lisbon overnight. Bag was lost. No real effort to assist. Bags of unaccompanied minor should be treated with priority."
Cons: "I can't take the flight because i'm not Chilean and I don't have a reembolse or other flight ,... nothing . Finally I take other flight with other company"
Pros: "The staff are the best European crews I have encountered. Naturally friendly, professional and fit looking. Nothing is too much trouble"
Pros: "Pleasant flight"
Cons: "Headset jack only worked if the headset plug was in EXACTLY the right spot."
Cons: "KLM crews look unhappy with their work. Everything they do is a favor not duty."
Pros: "The last two times we connected in Amsterdam to Humberside our luggage was delayed. This time it wasn’t. The simple things give the greatest satisfaction"
Pros: "Crew was courteous and polite! Entertainment system had some great movies at no additional cost."
Cons: "Poor communication between delta, KLM and Air France meant that I couldn’t check in online and get a digital boarding pass. Furthermore I couldn’t use the check-in kiosks because my name was listed as Reidmr instead of Reid, which meant that my boarding pass did not match my passport. Overall this caused unnecessary delays that were compounded by the fact that I couldn’t use my TSA precheck. My main problem on the plane was that I had to struggle to get water served to me. It’s always so dry on planes and I would have liked to be able to get more than one tiny glass of water at a time. Also, would have loved a window at my window seat. Plus no WIFI!?"
Pros: "Good multi media access and content"
Pros: "From downloading the KLM app to the final touchdown of my final flight, everything was an ease, checking in, the option to change my seat, the service received was great."
Cons: "The ability to state a seat or meal preference within the app would be good but otherwise all was good."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful.food"
Cons: "Food was not upto the mark."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours. Arriving at Incheon, discovered ground crew were unaware of our arrival to take this connecting flight. However, we were put up overnight in a hotel, which was nice."
Pros: "Comfort economy well worth the extra."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy!"
Pros: "The crew were really helpful since I am a short person in putting my luggage away in the overhead compartment and attentive to everyone's needs. I am a fussy eater and don't really like airplane food but the food was actually really nice. We was given plenty of snacks and drinks in between meals as well. There was plenty of programmes to choose from to keep me entertained."
Cons: "The seats in economy were a little too small for a 12 hour flight"
Pros: "We love the flight all the way"
"4 flights in 3 weeks between arrival and departure and all flights delayed about 5 to 6 hours ! What’s going on with AF ?! Not a low cost and you paid for that service !?!? Not anymore"
Pros: "Clean plane , good crew ,"
Cons: "they didn't load my baggage from flight 1 to 2"

Cons: "New variety of food"
Pros: "Great crew and entertainment. Terrible experience at CDG airport but that’s the airports fault."
Pros: "The seat was very comfortable."
Cons: "My boyfriend and I were required to gate check our carry-on luggage which required us to go through customs in Paris to get to our bag and re-enter security for our connecting international flight. I am unsure why this was the case as other passengers brought the same size luggage. Very upsetting."
Cons: "Our request for vegetarian meals got lost after a glight was cancelled."
Cons: "They made me check my carryon rolly which is allowed on every other plane in the world, which meant going all the way back into a chaos of hundreds of people to check in. Because I had a connecting flight to New York in London, the check in caused many problems...and everything inside soaking wet"
Pros: "The whole crew is so kind"
Cons: "Delta made my whole first flying experience the best."
Pros: "Late departure, dirty, staff not friendly."
Cons: "Really hard to get boarding passes online"

Pros: "Arrived on time."
Cons: "Overhead luggage storage jammed with luggage belonging to someone who was sitting far behind my seat."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Food could be better, or at least be provided an option to purchase an upgraded meal. Also, insufficient amount of drinking water provided to passengers."
Pros: "The cue lines per zone are the most brilliant idea!"
Cons: "After boarding began there was a backup after the gate en route to the plane. No explanation. The plane left an hour later than scheduled but seemed to arrive close to scheduled time."
Pros: "Good food and crew"
Cons: "Plane was old and seats were super tiny. Even an average guy would be uncomfortable in it. Can’t sit in one spot for longer than 15 min without getting sore."
Pros: "Plane was new, and seatback screen responsive and functional."
Cons: "Economy seats not very comfortable, very tightly packed together"
Cons: "Boarding at CDG was awfully slow"

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Food could have been much better in comparison with other airlines."
Pros: "1. The flight attendant staff was very polite and cheerful. 2. The plane was clean and comfortable."

Cons: "No space for legs. No food (just snacks). Very high temperature inside the aircraft. Flight delayed by 45 minutes."
Pros: "The Air France service was ok. Got me to my destination on time and alive."
Cons: "I flew out on KLM on what felt like a new plane. Amazing service, seat, temperature, entertainment and food. In stark comparison Air France’s plane was old, too hot, poor entertainment choices and system and average food which for the French was surprising!"
Pros: "Not much but the staff"
Cons: "No room, boarding was slow, zero bag or legroom"
Cons: "Leg space."
Cons: "Everything. The crew seemed to skip over me and my husband multiple times. So we sat there with garbage the whole flight. My entertainment was broken and they had no solution but giving me $30 to use at the duty free shop the same day as the flighty. I paid extra for premium seating in an exit row and that was their idea of fair compensation. The crew ran out of vegetarian food so I didn’t eat anything but cold stale bread. The crew was non-existent most of the flight."
Pros: "I like traveling with AirFrance in general."
Cons: "Terminal too far to go to loggage, walking about more than two miles after a long trip is not very easy AirFrance should have a better terminal at Charles-de-Gaulle!!! Have some missing stuff in my luggage!!!!"
Pros: "The airplane was modern, and the crew very good. Nice, service oriented and in general trying to make the flight experience as good as possible."
Cons: "The flight was very late. I lost my connection. My bag was lost and unable to recover it so far (after more than 24 hours). About to initiate the next leg of the trip with no clothes or any idea if my luggage will be recovered."
Pros: "Crew were pleasant most of the time"
Cons: "Boarding process is total chaos Took 40 mins to.check in at desk , pre ordered for wheelchair Never showed ...total zoo Beds advertised as lie flat bu they are NOT 180 degree flat , legs hang down - bad for circulation"
Pros: "We got to the desk to check in and there was one person being served in front of us. He finished with him, turned and left the area through the dooor. No one came to help us for 15 minutes. Then they came out to answer the phone and said we were 10 minutes past the cut off and we could not fly."
Cons: "Staff just walked away while we were in line, the rudeness and mean attitude, they blamed us for being too late after ignoring us and made us late, they didn't offer an alternative flight until we asked. Overall, horrible customer service. Never been treated so rudely by people in the airlines industry in my entire 42 years of flying!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 times and when I was finally put on a flight that was leaving, they failed to check the connection in Paris (Left me 10 minutes to get from the aircraft to the other plane!) I was moved to SAA in the end after a truly traumatic time in Johannesburg. This is not the first time I have suffered at the hands of Air France sadly. Needless to say, I wont be booking with Air France again."
Pros: "In cabin crew was attentive and friendly. Food was good and came at good times. Middle bathroom on Airbus 380 was big and comfy."
Cons: "Boarding was not too well organized and I followed Security's direction who put me in wrong line and I wasn't able to board with my priority group. Sitting in exit row with no floor storage so this delay made it hard to find overhead storage above my seat. (Grrrr) Entertainment system didn't work which made the flight feel LOOONG. (They offered an in-flight credit, but I'd paid for premium exit row seat and had to choose between moving to working system in crowded middle seat or keep premium, exit seat. I decided to have them move me to a seat with a working entertainment system, which were available and they'd offered, but never happened.) When I got home, I discovered the gift I purchased with in-flight credit and my own money wasn't the one I'd requested from Duty Free catalog so now I have to figure out how to solve this problem. (COULDN'T GET IT RIGHT.) Premium exit row seat was narrow, due to in-seat tray table & entertainment system, but seatbelt mounts and thinly padded seat made it even more uncomfortable on a long flight."
Pros: "Boarding and punctuality."
Cons: "Lagos boarding with rather annoying wait due to repeat hand check. Perhaps added security carried far."
Pros: "The hostesses were very kind and nice"
Pros: "Pretty decent"
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "Getting there on time despite delay"
Cons: "entertainment had very old media and no recent additions. Crew was not very organized"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "It was one problem after another during check in. And it was difficult to find help in English so I couldn't really tell what was going on. In the end I was tucking to get checked in because they were insisting I use a kiosk but I was telling them that the kiosk said to see an attendee. It was not efficient and I felt like a burden asking for help when there was nothing else I could do on my own."
Pros: "Flight went smoothly"
Cons: "Flight left late The seats are small and crowded There are no entertainment options"
Cons: "The crew was not very polite."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable with good recline. Food was good, but not excellent."

Pros: "The flight crew and flights itself were great."
Cons: "I was told the wrong flight time, wrong terminal, wrong gate, and wrong airline. I couldn't check-in online. It was horribly inconvenient and I nearly missed the flight. We got there with 5 minutes until the doors closed."
Pros: "Movie selection was awesome! Food was good too."
Cons: "Too many interruptions. Every time there's an announcement, it interrupts the movies and some of the announcements were completely unnecessary and there were so many of them, it was like constant interruptions, really annoying."
Cons: "Small leg space"
Pros: "The lounge is great, however the food is substandard to nearly every other lounge that I have used."
Cons: "The food on the plane is even worse, The staff were ok but not overly going out of their way to help with any issues, also they could at least pretend to smile."
Pros: "Pleasant staff."
Cons: "I sat next to an overweight lady and was incredibly uncomfortable my entire flight. There needs to be better regulation for overweight passengers to ensure that every passenger has enough room"
Pros: "Everything good more or less."
Cons: "Planes where not updated. I would like planes to be more up to date like other companies."
"The delay could have been shorter. Rough traveling late at night with an infant and then a delay."
"My flight was cancelled and I wasn’t even notified!!! Horrible service!"
Pros: "Overall the experience was okay."
Cons: "Flight attendant was the most intense covid person I’ve experienced on any flight... militantly going up and down the isles making sure everyone’s mask was perfect. Annoying to say the least."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "The flight was repeatedly delayed and AA isn't social distancing on their planes, causing people to be right next to another person for multiple hours. Even with masks, the risks could be further mitigated if seating was more staggered."
Cons: "Made it a smaller flight. It was a lot of people on the plane! We could not practice social distancing"
Cons: "Nothing--everything was great--perhaps the best service I've ever received."
Pros: "No one within 6 feet of me."

Cons: "The crew could have given a care and tried to make eye contact"
Pros: "Nothing because the fly was delayed"
Cons: "The flight has to be on time"
Cons: "No deberían cojerse los artículos personales de los pasajeros"
Pros: "There were 2 crew members who were very helpful and nice."
Cons: "The movies were kind of poor but the worst part really was the service. Most were not willing to help me at all (I was traveling solo with a baby and carry on baggage + a car seat). One stewardess even told another passenger to carry something back for me since the crew was too busy."
Cons: "The plane was very hot when boarding and then very cold while flying. It was uncomfortable."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed for two hours because of a mechanical issue. When we reached Savannah we had to wait to get to a gate to get off the plane."
Cons: "Plane was late. Connection in Chicago was the worst"
Pros: "Arrived safely"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 6 hours weeks before which made the return really inconvenient for my schedule. Then the flight was delayed on the day of the flight until the next day. I did not get to the hotel room until 3:30 AM- 3 hours sleep then back to airport only to have the flight delayed again."
Pros: "service was consistent"
Cons: "Plane was unusually hot"
Cons: "Gate changed 4 times...late boarding and even later departure 2 hours. Put us on a small plane and then do maintenance. not cool."
Pros: "Nice flight"
Pros: "The crew was great. Even though we were delayed by about 40 minutes, they were friendly and courteous."
Cons: "40 minutes maintenance delay."
Pros: "Teeny little plane but easy (early i think!) boarding process and nice flight attendant."
Cons: "We were in quite a long line to take off and when we arrived in bmore there was no one to manage the jet bridge and we sat for a little while. Seems like these issues should be easy to solve - you know when the plane is arriving for over an hour!"
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew were great."
Cons: "Plane was hot, dinner was a sandwich that was still frozen and the attendants weren’t friendly."
Pros: "The flight was smooth sailing from the beginning to the end and the meal service was good."
Cons: "A little bit of turbulence during the final descent into the airport made it a bit uncomfortable."
Pros: "I lost money, I came back a day later wish it wasn’t plan and is NOT ok ."
Cons: "westjet delayed my flight once again, so I was stuck in the LAX airport for 5 hours"
Cons: "Seats are small, tight and don’t recline much."
Pros: "Only good thing about the flight is the price."
Cons: "I do not like the two hour delay, after a hour maybe consider getting another plane."
Cons: "AA claimed the overhead storage was full and took my carry-on. Except I walked by at least 15 spots that easily would have fit my bag. They made us pay $50 to check-in luggage, but then didn't bother to put the bags on our flight. They also tried to charge us twice for the privilege of checking bags. They had no flights that would get us home on the same day, then claimed that since 12 hours had elapsed, we had to repay to check bags. During the flight, they had non stop commercials for their credit card. Ugh"
Pros: "It makes such a difference when the attendant is happy and clearly enjoying her work and trying to make a difference. A fantastic boost after a long flight"
Pros: "Food & Entertainment were good. Thankfully the crew seemed to have waited for us."
Cons: "We were late, so some guy took my seat. Attendant was annoyed that I didn't just take any open seat. I wanted the seat I purchased, near my wife. The other passenger didn't gain anything by taking my middle seat as he travelled alone."
Pros: "New plane, all kinds of entertainment choices including new movies, great flight crew, smooth flight."
Cons: "American check in software was down when we got to the airport. Created a very large line. Did not delay boarding, even though passengers still had to go through customs before reaching the departure gates. Had a bit of jog to make sure I was able to get on the plane."
Pros: "ON TIME"
Cons: "NO ROOM TO BREATHE. AISLE TOO SMALL TO WALK WITHOUT HITTING SOMEONE AA IS MAKING BILLIONS PER YEAR IN PROFIT. SO CHEAP, YET PRICES ARE SOOOOOOO HIGH"
Cons: "departed late, we have to wait 20 minutes on board, flight arrived late to destination and in Lima airport were not gates, no buses available so we have to wait another 25 minutes in the plane, once in the terminal another 15-20 minutes waiting luggage"
Pros: "New and Updated plane, great service, great crew."
Pros: "The American Airways gate agent was very helpful fixing the problem that British Airways created. She went out of her way to get me booked on AA flights to catch my BA flight from London to Riyadh."
Cons: "My original flight was cancelled and the first available flight was 3 days later. BA booked me on the flight but failed to change my ticket from the original flight causing me to miss the flight from Kansas City. At the airport BA agent told me on the phone that I would have to wait 3 more days after I had already waited 3 days because BA canceled my original flight. Because of the flight cancelation I missed two days of work and because of the failure to ticket my following flight I almost missed a full week of work. The BA booking person seemed content that there was no way I could make it to Saudi prior to the end of the week. Fortunately, the AA agent was able to find a way for me to continue my trip on a later flight."
Cons: "4 hours delay and a plane with no tv or any kind of entertainment."
Cons: "Seats were small and uncomfortable on American Airlines compared to Qantas"
Pros: "The movie, game and music selections were good. However, my son was only able to connect to the Disney movies. Something was wrong with his monitor."
Cons: "Food was awful! Service was hit or miss. One flight attendant was very curt in asking about beverages. They seemed to be impatient. Also, comfort level was poor. I am only about 5'2" but I thought leg room space was tight."
Pros: "Staff was fantastic."
Cons: "Flight leaving Miami delayed 1.5 hrs Flight leaving London delayed 3hrs"
Pros: "Check in Miami Stewards Miami Quito portion"
Cons: "Being 3 1/2 hours late from Quito to Miami Being delayed from Denver to Houston and switch to United to coach seats, they did give us coupons though, but after the fact . Luggage arriving late from Denver, customer service didn't have a clue were the luggage was. As we were leaving to come back next day the luggage, we saw it in a carrousel, and pick it up. Republic flight from New Orleans it's not worth it the business class, very poor service ."
Pros: "The professionalism of the pilots in handling the extremely rough weather during the flight"
Cons: "The meal of a turkey sandwich on dry bread was forgettable . They are co - shared with Qantas and could learn a lot about providing a decent meal on a long expensive flight"
Pros: "Eventually we got to hartford"
Cons: "Delayed leaving ATL, sat on the Tarmac for 30 mins. Leaving CLT was delayed 1.5 hrs for mechanical issue because it problem occurred during a shift change. Also was never given the opportunity to choose a seat assignment on CLT-BDL so I ended up in the very last middle seat."
Pros: "Short duration"
Cons: "Didnt have a seat assignment for me. Told me the flight was overbooked... paid long in advance. Disappointing, finally finally found a seat."
Pros: "The new airplane was nice. The plane that we took to Hawaii was so old that it still had ashtrays and was super dirty."
Cons: "For some reason American has not given us any seat assignments in our trip home and all the gate agents are very unfriendly and not in HR least bit helpful."
Cons: "Boarding, food"
Pros: "No comment"
Cons: "No food or drink given to me. Deliberately ignored by crew."
Pros: "La puntualidad"
Cons: "La comida"
Pros: "Crew did a good job. In flight entertainment was great. Need a way to use my wireless headphones with the direct tv (maybe through the United app?)"
Cons: "Seats in First Class were not as comfortable as I would expect. Hardly any padding in the back or in the armrests. Didn’t care for the food on either flight. Can’t you just serve some good ol’ Meat and potatoes with gravy, a plain vegetable and a roll?"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, helpful and very competent. Flight arrived early. Regular notification/reminder via SMS on flight status. Comfortable seats, generous seat pitch."
Cons: "For a three-hour international flight, and at that ticket price, substantial snacks should be complimentary. In Asia, flights of three hours or more on legacy carriers have proper inflight food. Low cost carriers sell food; but UA is not LCC."
Pros: "I was crying while watching a movie and the crew wrote me a sweet note and gave me a complimentary glass of wine. It means a lot, honestly. I cried a little more because of the sweet gesture!"
Pros: "Entertainment is excellent!"
Cons: "Seats are very close together but the flight is short"
Cons: "It was one of the worst trips i have taken. The delay was beyond real and they informed us of it 10 min prior to planned boarding eventhough they knew of the snowstorm all day. We boarded at 11:30pm and spent 3 hours in the plane with minimal updates. Nerve wrecking and missed an important meeting"
Cons: "I checked on Brussels and united about baggage rules and was very rudely surprised that I had to pay to check my luggage. And will have to on the way back. Has never happened before, pretty upset."
Cons: "In both flights the in flight entertainment don’t work, you need to pay for a service that is free in other airlines"
Pros: "They let us off the plane to stretch and get food when we had to return to the gate for mechanical issue."
Cons: "The flight was over an hour late so we barely made our connection and certainly didn't get food which was our plan. They did not have room for any of our carry on as we were some of the last to board so they took it at the door of plane. . They managed to put our carry on on a flight to Beijing, not in the plane( that is mind boggling). The seats were uncomfortably tight. Our next flight on a smaller plane was roomier. No warning we needed to download the app to our device for entertainment as you had to pay for inseat tv."
Pros: "Timely departure"
Cons: "Annoying screaming 4 year old with his mom’s inability to control him. They sat in front of us. From Houston to Baton Rouge - attendant was too slow. Couldn’t get a cup of water to anyone except I am assume first class passengers. No notice. No apology. Disappointing!"
Cons: "Volume of the PA was so loud it was painful"
Pros: "Never made connection since first flight was deplaned"
Cons: "Never made it"
Cons: "I'm 6'1" . The seats are too small for long flights."
Pros: "Attendants were nice"
Cons: "Made me check my carry on to destination when lots of people had carry one same size as mine"
Cons: "Have the seats and leg room gotten even smaller on the 767 or is it me. Booked w SwissAir, got United quality instead"
Pros: "I bought extra leg room which was worth it given we were delayed.."
Cons: "The flight was very late getting in and the one attendant was not very good on follow up and seemed grouchy The other attendants were nice. My Hemisphere Magazine only showed the snack meals as a page was missing so I barely got any food and United ran out of food totally before reaching my travel companion. United needs to plan for more food on long flights during the day."
Cons: "2 suitcases out of 6 came broken, the airline did not accept any claim because they say the type of damage is not covered!!!"
Pros: "I liked that the suitcase was stowed"
Cons: "Waiting 11 hours for a flight to Portland"
Cons: "I think, on a five hour international flight that you should not have to pay for your entertainment. Really cheap. And if you have a couple of kids? Since the Go App works for free in the states, why can't they offer that."
Pros: "They had many movies selection."
Pros: "The meal that was served was exceptionally good."
Cons: "Is it really that much more expansive to provide complementary movies - personally I never watch the movies but many passengers do - I did not notice anyone who purchased this service."
Cons: "I had a seat that had a monitor that was steaming code in front of me for 6 hours. It couldn't even be turned off. The only thing the crew offered was a piece of cardboard to cover it up. "If you download the United app you can pay to stream movies." I hate United and I don't use that word often. I would much rather give praises than complaints. Pay extra for food, entertainment, emergency isle seats... not that the tickets didn't already cost me a fortune. Crew even gave me grief about hanging up my suit!?! I flew to Thailand recently for less than flying to Texas, and everything was included, comfortable, and FRIENDLY. NOT UNITED."
Pros: "Very few things."
Cons: "6 hours international flight with only popcorn and cheese and crackers selection for lunch. Ridiculous Boarding process was a mess."
Pros: "Professional staff, landed safely, the NY skyline is gorgeous"
Cons: "Had to get on a later flight, TSA sucks as usual, I'm too tall for that plane"
Pros: "The cabin lights were off during takeoff and it was wonderful because the lady with the crying baby behind me was finally able to get her baby to sleep."
Cons: "Then all of the cabin lights turn me down on. And woke the baby up. And stayed on for the duration of the flight, not turning back off until we landed. I feel like the cabin lights should at least be dimmed for a flight that goes from 11 pm to 1 am."
Pros: "it was a direct flight"
Cons: "Honestly, the customer service with United was in need of serious improvement, from the moment we checked our bags to the time we were in flight, we were given very poor service, the man at baggage check in was extremely condescending, acting like we should know everything about United's processing instead of just helping us with our needs in the first place and it added unnecessary extra stress to our travels from Colorado to Hawaii. I don't even want to blame the employees as it was very obvious that they hated their jobs and just wanted the shift to be done with; something needs to be addressed about how they can accommodate both employees and paying customers alike. Let's just say I can't wait until Hawaiian Airlines expands to Denver flights so we never have to deal with United again, as this is the only reason we used this airline."
Cons: "I am young but I am in heart failure and have an artificial heart. I had requested wheelchair service so I didn't overexert myself at the airport and was wheeled right up to the gate. There were two other older passengers in wheelchairs, one on either side of me. When it came time to pre-board flight attendants came up to both men and helped them on board. They ignored me. Then they announced regular boarding. I had to remove my bags from my lap and get up out of the chair and go to the gate to say I needed to preboard. The man looked annoyd and said they had announced it. When I explained how no one came to me but they did the others he said I could go now. I said I needed help with my bags and he acted VERY surly and put out. He did help me but I felt like they assumed because I was young I couldn't possibly be sick and treated me like a liar."
Pros: "Everbody seemed nice. Smooth ride."
Cons: "The back bins get filled too quickly. Same issue going and coming."
Cons: "Completely missed meeting due to 6 changes made during flight - Ask for a refund of some sort and non was given - not even air-miles or ticket recognition. Customer service from United was almost non existent. Will not be flying with united ever again."
Pros: "I had to get my luggage in Frankfurt and was almost denied access to it in the airport because the airlines don't have agreement together."
Cons: "Luggage transfer"
Pros: "Boarded on time. Arrived on time. Fast boarding"
Cons: "A little turbulent"
Pros: "Norfolk is always good and professional"
Cons: "Delayed 1.5 hrs"
Cons: "Touch screen broken on TV. I couldn't watch the films I wanted to watch."
Cons: "We were in Cleveland and our flight got cancelled. We confirmed a flight out of Canton. Drove the hour only to find that flight to be cancelled also. Drive from Canton to Chicago and arrived at about 2 in the morning. We had tried to change our flight to leave two days earlier. The fee for changing flights was more than the tickets were initially but when you cancel it its tough break for us."
Pros: "CSR people were very nice"
Cons: "I took this flight based on the schedule because I needed to be back home after being gone for 21 days for a very important for some very important events with my wife and family I had already been delayed one day by my employer to find out that I'm delayed in O'Hare by united airlines for over two hours crammed into a airplane like a bunch of sardines no place to upgrade the service was horrible the flight was horrible in O'Hare is horrible"
Cons: "United airlines sucks. Broke my macbook. Told attended to not put other people stuff on top on my macbook. She still put 30 pounds stuff on my macbook and damage is made to the screen. I want my money back"
Pros: "Crew was great, captain was a comedian. Pretty sure he broke the speed limit getting from Denver to OKC (95 minute flight took just about 67 minutes. Hey, the pilot told us he was going supersonic) no complaints here. Again, great entertainment, flight didn't last long enough to enjoy the free wifi entertainment."
Cons: "This was a 6 person row plane. As such, with three on each side and more people front to back, I lost leg and shoulder room. At 6'4" & 280 with size 14 feet, you notice these things."
Pros: "Boarding was ok"
Cons: "I was one of the last to broad the aircraft and found that my seat was given to another customer. I was asked by the flight attendant if I could seat all the way in the back by the restrooms. I was not happy with this at all but could live with it. Once we landed I waited on my bags at baggage claim. Found that my luggage had been damaged."
Cons: "Four hour equipment delay on departure One hour equipment delay in return I never want to fly connecting again but it was the only way to get from Newark to Burbank."
Pros: "friendly service newspaper punctuality"
Cons: "the snack little legroom"
Cons: "Delayed in Sacramento due to weather which is understandable. However, my connecting flight in San Francisco left 8 minutes early causing me to miss the flight. It was the last flight out for the night.... Had to sleep at the airport for 5 hours until another flight in the morning. My flight in the morning caused me to have a middle seat, which was very uncomfortable for the next 5 hours."
Pros: "Getting to my destination"
Cons: "Almost 3 hours delay on the way there and the same on the way back. It's so unacceptable"
Cons: "There was no entertainment, no more food left when they got to my seat and the seats were really small"
Cons: "Lack of leg room, no TVs, no free wifi"
Pros: "The crew showed respect to all of the passengers. The food was tasty and had a nice presentation."
Cons: "the first flight was delayed and i arrived at the destination 8 hours after the scheduled time and completely missed the appointment. Very disappointed."
Cons: "Was told I could sit next to my travel partner but when we went to check in at the boarding gate, we did not have seats together...."
