Airline reviews

They told us our family of five couldn’t fly because our Covid tests weren’t at the correct time. After it was elevated to the fourth level, someone actually did the math like we did, and they realized we were right and let us on the flight. This made the experience extremely stressful and frustrating. The employees and especially the flight crew were nice, but not having their info straight tainted the trip. I know these are very challenging times for airlines as they navigate all the different restrictions from different countries, but something as simple as the test cutoff time for a 48 or 72 hour lead time for a scheduled flight ought to be easy to have ready beforehand. After all that drama, there was no “Sorry about that” or perk of any kind. Good lesson for us to make sure we have our facts straight before torpedoing somebody.

Cons: "The wedsite for Qatar could use some work."
Pros: "The food was good. Supposed to be Halaal (Kosher) for the Muslim population who have dietary restrictions. The economy cabin was comfortable enough. The cabin crew was friendly and helpful.

Pros: "B777 Dreamliner is dreamy. Lots of overhead luggage space. Decent leg room (could always be more). Great individual entertainment screen for long transcontinental flights. Flight staff was a mixed international crew, very friendly, unpretentious, polite and just nice compared to other airlines. The planes they use seem very new. Would definitely recommend Qatar Air over Aeroflot any day."
Cons: "Food was decent for airline food but nothing to rave about and as with most airlines uses too much plastic packaging. Although I was pleased that some of the flights used metal flatware, but still too much waste in the industry in my opinion. Also, the headphone jack was not compatible with my headphones. The type used on the 777 is the dual pronged one. I did not have an adapter so had to use the crappy headphones that are provided."
Cons: "I used Qatar airways 3 times so far. In the last flight, were a connection has 8 hours between 2 flights, they deny me to stay in a hotel. The last 2 flights which have exactly the same schedule, I used the hotel in that 8 hours between the 2 flights. I asked why, they told me that my ticket is not eligible to the hotel, although, I bought the last two times from Kayak, with almost same price. My first flight with Qatar Airways was on July 2017. My second flight with Qatar Airways was on August 2017. My third flight with Qatar Airways was on Jan 208."

Cons: "No leg room, can't stretch your legs properly so my bad knee was in pain"
Cons: "The entertainment did not include any music (classical or otherwise)."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that on now 3 flights I have lost miles, as on every flight I have tried to sign on as a member or frequent flyer and on all flights, there were no entry forms. This is also after my attempt to complete one on line, which I have had no response to."

Pros: "Plane was perfect"
Cons: "Transit was just tedious very long line , had to wait for along time. The crew have very strong accent which makes difficult to understand them, but they are very nice and helpful"

All good

Everything was great

Overall good flight. Only downside is that the passenger next to me took up part of my seat in addition to hers, which was slightly uncomfortable but not a big deal.

2hours delayed and didn't give notification right away 🤷‍♀️. I even lost my food to rush to go to the airport. Paid $60 for seafood plate ending just leave it almost halfway on my way to the airport find out the flight was delayed. I wish they have more accurate policy to let passengers knows for any problems about the flight as soon or as early they can

I like that I got to my destination safely.

Pros: "The flight from EWR to MSP was extremely quiet. No loud engine noises."
Cons: "We were vert disappointed at the Newark Airport - the Delta Club was closed and there had been no notification prior to arriving at the airport. I certainly missed that early morning coffee."
Pros: "Crew was great! Friendly"
Cons: "Monitors for in flight entertainment didn’t work."
Cons: "There should not be a pay wall around the internet in today's day and age"
Cons: "People wiping down their seats during the flight .... how silly"

Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delta Comfort was no where near as good as a similar class on other airlines, such as Air France or KLM."
Cons: "The flight is operated by Air France and I would have preferred Delta. It was extremely cramped but the food was excellent and it was on time"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "The temperature, it was kind of hot."
Cons: "I really like more legs room and comfort and crew member were very good and helpful. Regarding food I say it’s just ok."
Pros: "top notch KLM are the best"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful! Food was good. It was a good experience."
Cons: "This whole paying for comfort seats is annoying. Just make all the seats decent for all travelers."
Pros: "The crew were great. A little too warm on the plane at the back of the plane and too cold at the front."
Cons: "Since this was the first leg of two, the person who checked us in did not check our bags to the final destination. Then, when we went to go to check in for our second leg, they wanted to charge for our baggage again. Not cool Delta."
Cons: "No WiFi kg was an old plane and the stranger next to me was 6’4” so pretty uncomfortable"
Pros: "Everything was great except for the man that smoked in the restroom on the flight to Atlanta."
Cons: "A man smoked in the restroom on the flight to Atlanta, and I didn’t see ANY kind of repercussions for his endangering all of our lives. I would’ve very much liked to see him detained for the remainder of the flight."

Pros: "Excellent gate personnel, spacious and clean plane"
Cons: "Some crew members were a bit curt"
Cons: "Plane was Boarded and we sat for over an hour waiting on fuel. Minimizing the wait time on the plane should be considered prior to boarding. The practice of getting us on the plane to make us wait shhould be stopped. It will creat a much more relaxed and smooth delay if we are allowed to be in the terminal."
Pros: "Food and service was nice"
Cons: "Very long route to my final destination"
Cons: "Gate agent @ LAX calling every single passenger with a lot of noise around couldn't hear. I had to go and check myself a couple of times."

Pros: "The flight was great. The crew was great. The plane was great. I would highly recommend Delta over every other airline for travel within the USA."

Pros: "Seats in economy had a little more elbow room and space. They offered free movies and free satelite tv as well as better snack options."

Cons: "WAS DELAYED SEVERAL HOURS, WAS TRAVELING ALL DAY FOR A FLIGHT THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN MUCH SHORTER. DUE TO THIS HAD TO INCONVENIENCE THE PERSON THAT WAS PICKING ME UP AS WELL!"

That was great

The food on business class was not good at all

Initially I had a short layover—booked through Lufthansa I was worried about. Then My first flight got delayed, and continued getting delayed, and I was sure I was going to miss the next flight. That got delayed too though, so while I still ended up with a short layover it was enough for me to make it before boarding began. Then my second flight also kept getting delayed while my third one did not. The transition between my second and third flight was supposed to be my longest and a breeze, but when it was all said and done I had right about an hour to make it. It was a bit more stressful than I would have liked.

Pros: "Very helpful and experienced crew, really good service! Thank you!"
Pros: "It's good to flight public transit long time I'm the food is really bad pouring food"
Cons: "The only company that constantly delays flights. Narrow and uncomfortable places in the business class. They waited 4 days for the suitcase! They are not responsible for receiving compensation for the delay in suitcases! Where to write and call?"
Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Did not fly to D.C. (or with Lufthansa at all) as that flight left before our first flight arrived. We had to wait 3 hours in the customer service line before we were told we could not fly out until the next day, which caused me to miss work (even though I gave an entire day as a buffer)."
Pros: "Lufthansa is an airline in a different class altogether. Can not compare with any commercial airline that flies to Europe"
Pros: "The crew was the best! Excellent service... kind and caring as well as professional."
Cons: "As always, more space but I was fortunate enough to get an exit row this time, which helped."
Pros: "Flew Business Class with miles program (United). Lufthansa always gives good basic flight experience. Watched two movies so saved some time at home. Lounges are getting better every time I fly. They are especially good, understandably, in Frankfurt."
Cons: "Nada. They get the job done."
Cons: "Lufthansa in Frankfurt is a nightmare. Gates are very far apart and Lufthansa scheduled layovers are very short. We were running close to 2 km from one end of the airport to other with little kids barely making our flights. Boarding was on tarmac even for 747, once in rain once in 40C degrees."
Cons: "Departure arrangement at Budapest airport was total confusion; the plane and departure was approx. 2 hours late. The result: we missed our connecting flight from Munich to Washington DC, thus loosing a whole day to return home. Huge disappointment !!!"
Pros: "Everything Else"
Cons: "Too much cabin baggage."
Pros: "The problem was with the booking, cancelled flights- under stable- but nobody willing to make it right. Flights still screwed up"
Cons: "Give some customer service to your paying customers. Don't make a bad situation worse. Practice a can do attitude. Very disappointed in customer service. Not the flight itself."
Pros: "I booked with Lufthansa, but this was a United flight. I prefer United's boarding process with multiple groups to Lufthansa's single group. Lufthansa's leads to a very very long line 20 minutes before boarding starts."
Cons: "United had fewer movie options, fewer meals, and worse food than the Lufthansa flight we took when we traveled to Frankfurt. It was also delayed two hours due to mechanical issues. I will have to pay more attention when I book next time to avoid United flights."
Pros: "The crew on the jet were fine. The entertainment was good too."
Cons: "The crew at checkin we’re pretty awful. They were rude and not very helpful. I witnessed 3 customers have poor service in front of me and then they weren’t helpful with me either. The plane changed and I had paid for a seat and I lost my money and the seat I paid for and was never notified."
Pros: "Good standard Lufthansa service"
Cons: "Economy seats are too cramped, in comparison to the other airlines"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "UAL sucks, as expected."
Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."
Cons: "Flight from Heathrow to Frankfurt delayed, when we arrived we had no chance of making our connecting flight to Split yet no one told us. No one at the gate which didn’t say final call (or on any of the boards) or anyone calling us over the tannoy at any point. Super rude “flight manager” A. Turini burst out laughing when we told him our situation and when I asked why he said “Well would it make you happier if I cry instead?” So unprofessional."
Pros: "Staff was very pleasant , polite, and accommodating"
Cons: "No complaints except for the how long is the flight, but it’s a part of a journey"
Pros: "Food was good but not enough."
Cons: "Entertainment system was not working."
Cons: "The TV sound didn’t work too well. Excellent staff Ms Maria Was very gracious."
Pros: "Attitude of staff"
Cons: "Food and delay"
Cons: "Late arrival in Munich, missed connection to Krakow, no rebooking and nobody cared that we, 3 people, get to our destination the same day. Spent 12 hours ( 10 am to 10 pm ) at Munich airport not knowing if and/or when we get on the plane, hoping to be on 10 pm flight, not making any connection all day long. Suggestions to fly through different city or on different airline we’re met with shrug and “ not possible “ reply. Having one Omaha Krakow Lufthansa ticket made no difference to anybody. Horrible experience specially that one of us was 80 years old. Will never fly with Lufthansa again. None of my friends will. Dreading my flight back. Kasia Bradley"
Pros: "Everything in order and on time."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Cons: "Luggage didn’t make a Lufthansa connection even though both flights w."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and polite. The airplane was clean. The boarding was quick and easy. The entertainment was varied and enjoyable."
Cons: "It wasn't an issue on my flight since there were empty seats in my row, but I don't enjoy the spacing provided for personal items on the floor under the seat in front you. For four seats there are three sections; so, you can hope that someone doesn't need any space or else you have to decide how to awkwardly split it up."
Pros: "the crew and entertainment were excellent"
Cons: "the comfort of the seats is terrible. the boarding process was: 1st class, then everyone else. no zone or seat range loading..."
Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
Pros: "Good overall experience"
Pros: "Boarding, seat and crew"
Cons: "Movies selection and audio offers"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. 11 hour flight. Boring. No seat change available. No reading light, as light controlled by entertainment system. Seats in front of toilet cluster lit up every time door was opened. Crew were slow to react. Wasn't a priority. Ruined the excellent first leg of had from Philadelphia to Frankfurt. Do they run inferior planes to South Africa compared to USA?"
Pros: "The service was very good. You never really felt you had to ask. I was able to catch up on a few movies of my choice. That was nice."
Cons: "It's a long flight and it's always difficult to get comfortable and 1st class is just out of my budget."
Pros: "The food was terrific. The in flight entertainment system was one of the best I've experienced."
Cons: "The online check-in using my wife's iPad's browser in a don't have a printer scenario (which is the case when you're not home), was difficult to navigate. My wife wound up with my boarding pass on her phone and not one for herself. We did get our boarding passes at the kiosk, but then mine had my TSA-precheck but my wife's didn't and she had to go through an extra layer of security (near the gate area) because of this at the Munich airport."
Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Was a short flight , so really I don't have any negative impression"
Pros: "Nice staff...."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Pros: "Entertainment and staff were great"
Cons: "It wasnt comfortable and i wasnt able to sleep at all"
Pros: "Excellent service....very comfortable."
Cons: "No screens at all and the boarding was messy"
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Cons: "Not so friendly crew"
Pros: "Crew was extremely friendly! Great variety of the newest movies. Toilets were always kept clean."
Cons: "Horrible food: over-salted and "mystery meat" for lunch; only given a small piece of bland cheese pizza for dinner and that was it. I suggest providing a small bottle of water for a long flight instead of a small cup of drink during the two meal times. I felt dehydrated during the flight (wasn't able to buy a bottle of water beforehand) and didn't want to keep buzzing the flight attendants repeatedly."
Pros: "Food. The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding by row would have been better. All of economy boarded at the same time."
Pros: "Check-in was easy, and boarding went quickly. I got the seat of my choice in Economy, and was very comfortable. Food coming from Germany was good, especially the breads! The crew was numerous and very attentive and pleasant. This was my first time flying Luftansa, and I would definitely fly with them again."
Cons: "The biggest complaint I have was that one of the restrooms in my section was out-of-order. That meant a lot of waiting, but everyone was understanding and good about taking turns. The movie selection could have used a bit more mystery type films, but that is my taste. I did watch a few movies I hadn't seen."

Anyways on time and excellent service

Almost 6hs delay and luggages were left in London. Not even sure as to whether the luggage will be found and delivered. Very bad BA !

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 --

Flight canceled by airline. No refunds, no ability to talk to customer service. Terrible!

Pros: "The crew was very attentive and willing to assist with everything."
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived in Lyon early. Crew was attentive."
Cons: "Seat wouldn't go back."
Cons: "Rude staff"
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: "Baggage delayed on arrival"
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "The food, inflight entertainment. Our flight was delayed by over an hour."
Pros: "The plane left on schedule."
Cons: "I was asked to check in my carry on but I couldn’t do it bc I had lots of fragile items packed. I was told that overhead compartment was full which was not true as there was a lot of empty space left."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly staff"
Cons: "Very poor movie choice and poor quality screen"
Cons: "I paid extra for exit row seating, but what they didn't tell me was that the flight attendant seat was facing ours, so much for leg room. The actual placement of the seats were aisle row and middle row-so neither of us had a window to look out of or wall to lean against, no overhead lighting or air vent either. Can you say "rip-off?" My husband, who is tall and broad shoulder was constantly being knocked around by the flight attendants and carts. This flight was miserable. I guess I should be thankful for the hour plus delay in departure."
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: "Flight was very brief so not much to evaluate"
Cons: "."
Pros: "Meal service"
Cons: "Security at Heathrow. Check-in at b.s. was very v3ry slow. Charged us for coffee and tea flight from map to heathrow"
Pros: "Flight crew informed us what was happening although all passengers were accounted for earlier than departure time. Very pleasant crew members and pilots."
Cons: "No entertainment available and no snacks available without purchase."
Pros: "I’m always impressed with the friendly and caring nature of the British Airlines staff. They always go the extra mile (or km) to make sure that you’re happy."
Cons: "The food, but who flys for the meal"
Cons: "My flight never happened due to the cancellation."
Pros: "Muslim meal caters are not good at all. Need to have better meals"
Cons: "The food was not up to the standard. Also felt discrimination in the crew staff"
Pros: "The Crew were great"
Cons: "Boarding could have been more efficient"
Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Seats spacing, food"
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: "One of the most comfortable cabin interiors I've been in for 747s"
Cons: "Flight boarding was delayed fairly significantly, the second time this has happened to me out of two flights. Certain "hand luggages" were allowed onto the plane despite then failing to fit in overhead compartments and slowing down the whole procedure. Food was bad."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Overpriced"
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."
Cons: "I ended up being rerouted to LA!"
Pros: "Deserts were really good"
Cons: "Would be great to have Healthier snacks inbetween the meals"
Pros: "Pleasant helpful staff, comfortable, clean seat, good food."
Cons: "Having to pay TWICE for extra item of luggage!! Some delay with boarding"
Cons: "Had to pay even for water. Seats very small."
Cons: "Iberia airlines, operating for BA, refused to honor the tickets we had bought via Airfare .com. Would not let me fly!!!!!!! After several hours they found a way to put us on a later flight--got in late, had to stay overnight in Orlando. Don't understand!!!! Wife and I are in 70's--spent 22 hours trying to get home!!!"
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,"
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"
Pros: "nothing"
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"
Pros: "Crew handled the emergency well."
Cons: "We had a mechanical problem and flight had to return to London. My compliant is the maintenance was not done properly which could have been a much bigger problem."
Pros: "The audio did work for movies"
Cons: "I felt very warm and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The whole trip."
Pros: "That BAA have WiFi on the plan and the flight back did not even have USB charger . In new York at at the BAA terminal they only have 30 min worth of wifi"
Cons: "The service . In general it can be better"
Pros: "Crew were very efficient and friendly"
Cons: "Premium economy seats weren't as good as Singapore airlines ones. The seats had small screens and leg room was a bit restricted"
Pros: "Not much. Flight cancelled and was rerouted to London-Heathrow. Total travel time was longer than original flight schedule. Also my luggage was delayed and I had to return to Jerez airport to pick up my luggage the following day."
Cons: "See above post"

Aside from the plane being filthy, it was a perfectly fine flight

Everything was great.

Sone pleasant staff. On time. No AA staff at gate at boarding time in PHL. Most staff engaged with one another, but not very attentive with customers.

By the time we got to our gate after check in, our flight had been delayed enough for us to miss our connecting flight. I attempted to rebook our flight via the AA app, but it wouldn’t let me choose a flight until the following day. I went to the desk to ask for help, (there was no one else at the desk that needed help and there wasn’t a flight boarding at the time) and when I explained what was going on I was very curtly told “Don’t do that! Call this number!” and she threw a postcard with a phone number on it at me. When I tried the number, it wouldn’t connect, I only got beeping on the other end. I returned to the desk, where fortunately, another employee was able to get me seats on a flight later that evening. When we landed, our original connection was also so delayed that we were able to catch it and fortunately, the employee there was super helpful in getting us seats on that flight again. However, I continued to get notifications for the evening flight that we would have taken and it too, was very delayed.

Lost luggage as usual

We arrived early, then sat on the runway for almost an hr. I then missed my connecting flight.

Cons: "With Covid they could hand out a bag containing water and a snack."
Pros: "I was in first class this time. The seat was comfortable for the flight of roughly 2-1/2 hours. We were served a continental breakfast that was filling and healthy with cereal, fresh fruit, Brie, soft crackers and yogurt. I'd rather have something simple but satisfying than something overcomplicated and possibly not that good. The crew was polite and efficient. I did have to use the lavatory at one point and I was happy that it was clean."
Cons: "The entertainment system was down, but it wasn't American - it was gogoflight or whatever it's called. I ended up listening to my Audible so it turned out alright, but on a 2+ hour flight, it could have been frustrating."
Cons: "Flight from CLT to MCI was delayed 40 minutes, which made me arrive at Kansas City really late"
Pros: "The crew was friendly. The airline brought out some snacks for the passengers after an hour or so."
Cons: "There was a mechanical failure. We all had to deplane. The flight was delayed longer than the travel time to the destination."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "We had to wait for a flight attendant in Louisville going to Chicago, which made us a little late to OHare. Then we had to wait at OHare for another plane to leave. I ran from the one set of gates to the other, but I missed the boarding, even though the plane was still there. I was extremely disappo"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight got delayed missed my connecting flight rebooking options are garbage. Hotel was not accepting people from AA. Their shuttle company at MIA airport showed up 35 minutes late"
Pros: "Would’ve loved if the flight from Louisville to Charlotte weren’t delayed 2 hours for mechanical reasons!"
Cons: "The flight could’ve waited for us instead of leaving on time for Allentown!"
Pros: "The planes took off on time, and arrived early. Couldn’t ask for more!"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and legroom was bad."
Cons: "Old aircraft ...what’s with the non-assignment of seats until the last minute unless you pay extra !"
Cons: "On time, roomier seats"
Cons: "Beverages"
Cons: "I’ll never fly American Airlines again. Staff was rude and food and entertainment screen did not work"
Pros: "Friendly crew, excellent food options, very clean cabin."
Cons: "I had to pay for water."
Pros: "Biscuits are awesome"
Cons: "WiFi is a little confusing. App didn’t work."
Pros: "Everything was ok."
Cons: "very little service"
Pros: "Went smoothly as it should."
Cons: "Entertainment system didn't function well but that could have been more an airbus issue."
Pros: "Fast reliable two thumbs up!!!"
Pros: "Nice newer model plane"
Cons: "The usual...cramped seating. Boarding was very slow."
Cons: "The crew met their requirements. I dont think you’ll survive they dont go beyond."
Cons: "Made us wait over 2 hours on the tarmac before take off inside the airplane."
Pros: "Not a thing plans got changed I had back surgery"
Cons: "That my plans got changed"
Cons: "We arrived in Amsterdam at 9am, after traveling two hours to get there. We found out right away that there was a delay and chances of missing the connecting flight from Philadelphia to Orlando were great. We requested a different booking to insure travel to Orlando, which was denied. So the connecting flight was missed and after hours arrived in Orlando at midnight. Missed my ride and all car rentals were booked. All this caused a lot of anxiety and unnecessary stress. Very disappointing. And to add to it, the flight itself was horrible and there was no entertainment available for the entire flight."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and did their job effectively"
Cons: "Lack of seat space Planes seemed old Minimal overhead storage room—carry on fits all other airlines overhead but struggled to get bag in compartment Also, no help from crew with this Seats recline nearly into lap of person behind"
Cons: "Departed late and missed connection due to an overage of fuel. The crew took an additional 45 minutes to defuel the plane of 8000 gallons. Wth?! Have to stay overnight in Chicago now."
Cons: "After being delayed without any explanation, I was told that I would not have my purchased 1st Class seat. To add to that I received no service In economy."
Pros: "Arrived 20 min early. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Didn’t have individual movie screens."
Cons: "I don't like the fact that American Airlines try to get me to put my small carry on bag below both ways in the cargo area it is against FAA to have batteries down there. I have 30,000.00 in cameras and they tried to get me to do this both times saying the bag will not fit. The Flight Attendant each time say that it fits JUST FINE! I'm going to try to avoid American Airlines as much as I can!"
Pros: "My flight wasn't completely full, so I had a row to myself. The pilot was excellent; takeoff and landing were very smooth."
Cons: "I had to gate check my luggage because of the small plane size. Had I had a shorter layover this could have caused an issue for me."
Pros: "It was okay"
Cons: "We loaded late and than sat in the plane awhile before we left. No explanation was given. Once we arrived in Charlie we sat on the tarmac for 20 min. No explanation. Than we waited 20 min fir our carry on luggage to arrive. We were told we had to check it. By the time we arrived at our gate they had given outlet seats away. They were not very polity ir helpful."
Cons: "The flight was delayed more times than I can count, we got a different reason each time. Weather I can understand, but telling us we are waiting on a specific crew to arrive and then announcing that crew is not for our flight was just terrible communication. No one seemed apologetic. The only thing they did was bring a snack cart over for us, and that got raided by children so many people didn't get anything. We had arranged transport from Orlando to Tampa for that evening, and our rides had to cancel because instead of 7pm we were now arriving at 130am. Your airline's mistakes put everyone at an inconvenience and we weren't offered assistance to fix it. My husband went to ask for help in arranging new transport home, but he couldn't even get to the front of the line. The customer service was terrible. We really enjoyed our first leg of the flight home with American Airlines, but after the second leg and all of the problems we had... we will not fly with American Airlines in the future."
Cons: "Middle seat and one of the last ones on. Enough said"
Pros: "fly was on time, good service, food and entertainment."
Pros: "Everything was fine except it was inexplicably late!"
Cons: "It was over 30mins late for no reason!"
Pros: "Courteous crew, easy experience smooth "get in and get out" process"
Cons: "Flight was late due to weather but that's beyond anyone's control obviously"
Cons: "Plane was delayed by 4 hours due to mechanical issues"
Cons: "My flight was pushed back and I was never notified and I had to reschedule my flight completely from Vegas to Frankfurt"
Pros: "Staff was fantastic."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We purchased seats and they changed them without telling us so we picked new ones. Well guess what, we get to the airport and the same thing. I was seated at the front of the plane and my fiancé was at the back. Luckily a nice gentleman switched seats with me and we were able to sit together but it was the last seats that did not recline on an 8 hour flight. We will never fly American again. Their customer service offered no help and was extremely rude to us."
Cons: "Always delaysd"
Pros: "Flight delayed which allowed us to make connection after long runway and customs delays. Crew friendly and helpful. Prompt cabin service. Baggage brought quickly in SAT. Clean plane. Power source."
Cons: "Local pickup at SAT is now devoted to taxi. Airport police rude. Most people picked up at 11PM and hard for cars to get to curb or see passenger due to taxi line. Both terminals terrible after several experiences in last couple months. SAT worst pickup experience that I see national and international travel. Obvious that cabs and air port police are the worst congestion problem I experience."
Pros: "A short flight, so quite comfortable"
Pros: "The seat was a lot better than the first leg. Also the entertainment screen worked."
Cons: "The food was okay but not that good, The male crew steward was very friendly with a couple across from me and gave each of them 8 glasses of wine, even without asking for them, He would just show up with two glasses of wine every 30 mins. All the lady's working were great and friendly."
Cons: "Several consecutive issues delayed our start, then had a weather hold before we could descend. VERY crowded, got stuck with a window seat with a very large man next to me--better than B or D, at least."
