Pros: "Yes overall probably the best flight to Chennai from DC"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "All the food was terrible breakfast lunch and dinner I was sick from eating chicken I started vomiting as soon as I was on my way home , please serve better food , food tastes like factory junk , please offer cold drink and cold water or least ask if you would like ice, all the cups for the beverages was small, seating was very uncomfortable not enough room especially if you sitting next to a large person they kept elbow me and taking up my seating , I was so miserable on a 16 hours flight on Qatar to LAX , very bad experience , please do better, also staff was not friendly"

Cons: "Entertainment on the Boeing 777 suffered from access problems"

Pros: "Service and entertainment."
Cons: "Food."

Pros: "Flight was 80% empty, but it was amazing anyway, slept through most of it"
Cons: "Staff constantly woke me up for snacks and drinks, which is good on one hand but I was sleeping so deep that it was a bit annoying."

Pros: "Fabulous service from start to finish Excellent cabin, spacious & impeccably clean Super choice of food and drinks We travelled in the business cabin which I have to say, rivals many so-called 'First Class' products. The crew were courteous, addressing us by name and nothing was too much trouble."

Pros: "Faultless as per usual QA flights"

Pros: "I loved the service. All of the attendants were really nice and helpful."
Cons: "My tv on both 12 hr and 8 hr flights didn’t work well and the food wasn’t the best. Also they ran out of food options when they got to me twice."

Pros: "The long flight from Houston to Doha was good."
Cons: "The short flight from Doha to Nairobi was uncomfortably because of dry air in the plane."

Pros: "The airplane seats in economy were comfortable for the very long flights I took with Qatar Airlines. The seats had enough room between the back of the other seat. The seat reclined to a comfortable position. The seat back provided a built in head rest. The TV's in the seats were the largest I have ever seen on a flight in economy. The staff were helpful and great. The food and drinks provided were decent!"

Cons: "My suitcase was broken"

Cons: "carry-on did not fit on center overhead compartment unless I put it side ways (Same carry-on suitcase fit nicely on Emirates airplanes, so the carry-on overhead compartments have been made smaller on Qatar on purpose or by engineering error, and I will not fly Qatar airlines again. Less food options. I went to the Gally and they only had kitkat bars for food. Emirates offer fruit, sandwiches, and many choices at ALL TIMES of the flight for economy class passengers. Entertainment computer (Android based system) ran slow and out of memory at times. Seats were not comfortable for 12hrs flight. My butt was starting to hurt. I did not have this issues on Emirates flights."

Pros: "Courteous and friendly staff, on the plane and at the airports. Gave advice and directions when asked. Asked about time for food serving and said anytime you want something, come to the galley."
Cons: "A chorus of crying infants..."

Pros: "the attention in general for me was excellent."
Cons: "may be the fact that it was the same kind of food in both of the flights I had, is not that it was bad just in my opinion they should have more option, especially for south american people, thank you"

Cons: "Boarding"

Cons: "We had booked the flight together and they ended up putting us in different rows and couldn’t fix that. We travelled 14 hours apart :("

Cons: "Chairs a little too small for long flights...."

Pros: "Excellent friendly service"

Pros: "The cabin crew and Doha airport staff are absolutely great at thinking about customer comfort. Experienced it in the Business Class lounge as well as on the flight!"

Cons: "There's not food which was on menu I did not eat"

Pros: "Beautiful airplane with an incredibly hospitable staff. Food was delicious, seats were spacious and comfortable. Couldn’t ask for a better 14-hour flight!"

Pros: "Qatar has one of the best service in the world"
Cons: "Nothing that I ca th think off"

Pros: "Great crew members. Very friendly and helpful. Qatar Airways is great about providing pillows, blankets, ear plugs and eye masks. Really good food as well."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. With the tray folded out it was right against me without being extended. Leg room was cramped."

Pros: "Staff were professional, food was good and seats were comfortable."

Pros: "Comfort of the seat/bed"

Pros: "The airline stewardesses were Fabulous! Especially one from Doha to Cape Town. Food was good and more than enough to eat. I was impressed by the scheduled meals and drink offers , very important for a dietetic"
Cons: "No leg room, can't stretch your legs properly so my bad knee was in pain"

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: "The flight went fairly smooth, the staff were courteous and the food was as good as can be expected of airline food. There were several courses and options, which is always appreciated."

Cons: "The flight departure from Dar was moved up an hour and the congestion at the airport made it close. Also I need a name tag on a checked piece of luggage. When I asked, I was told that none were available. The check in person was not pleasant or helpful. I also had to watch to make sure that the luggage labels were attached to be sure that they would make it to Chicago. Once on the plane there was an unrudy boy sitting in front of us jumping in his seat, never wearing his seat belt kicking the seat, turning on the light beating on the tray table, calling the flight attendant. The adult ignored the child through the flight. It was one of the worse experiences I have had on a plane. I would have to think very hard before I fly Qatar again."

Pros: "Crew are great and entertainment options are good."
Cons: "The seats are quite uncomfortable and small. Really struggled to get comfortable."

Cons: "The customer service is terrible. They refused to accommodate me for a 19 hour layover with a complimentary airport hotel stay, claiming there was an earlier flight--that was still 12 hours away, that I would have to pay to book anyway. Pure scam to get you to pay to upgrade your flight, pay for hotel or be condemned to stay in there airport for a whole day. Never ever again! Don't fly them!"

Cons: "I planned a wonderful vacation for my birthday only to face a horrible experience. Not only was the flight uncomfortable, but my television did not work. There was a huge box underneath the seat in front of me which prevented me from stretching my legs outward. The television was on but the screen itself wasn't operating. I reached for the remote located in the armrest only to find the entire piece missing. Only the base was there. I asked the flight attendents three times if I can move to an empty seat and they said "give me a moment". The moment never came. I really expected more from this airline."

Pros: "On time, good crew, easy connection."
Cons: "Hard and tight seats for such long night flight."

Pros: "The crew was amazing, the entertainment system needs more content, the food could use more variety. I would definitely travel with them again."

Pros: "The Chicago flight was more than hour late so had to miss my cincinnati connection. Had to wait for 4 hours at the airport to catch my next flight- making the long journey even longer. No priority lounge access provided to make up for the delay. Qatar never getting my business again."

Pros: "The crew members are amazing."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!!!!!"
Cons: "The fact that our flight was cancelled without being notified. I will never make flight arrangements with them again!!!!!"

Pros: "The plane was neat, clean and the services was world class. I was made to feel at home with service always at my finger tips."

Pros: "Maria in Winnipeg tried to find me decent connections. She did book me into a hotel in Boston as I missed connection 3 times!!!!"
Cons: "Flights that arrive and leave on time. How can one plan a trip if flights are continually cancelled or delayed. Very frustrating and a very unhappy customer."

Pros: "The Crew"
Cons: "No AC..."

Cons: "The check process was ridiculous. There not enough room in the box for me to explain my experience but the ticket agent lied to me, said he couldn't take my bag until I got a paper receipt and boarding pass from a kiosk despite having had pre-paid for my bag and digital boarding pass. 25 mins wasted"

Pros: "very nice crew"

Pros: "Atlanta airport was busy and we circled for 30+ minutes, which nearly caused us to miss a connecting flight (customs and all). The Delta pilot was good at communicating with the passengers though."

Pros: "top notch KLM are the best"

Pros: "Entertainment on short flights is a nice surprise"
Cons: "Very very late.. I almost lost my replacement of the replacement of my connection. Had to run like hell. The luggage didn't make it. To summarize the day, woke up too early, got to my destination hours late and got the luggage in the middle of the night."

Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "We landed 45 minutes ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Boarding was rushed and we left the gate late."

Pros: "VERY small plane and small narrow seats"

Cons: "Not getting internet after paying $19.95"

Pros: "Delta crew & flight were excellent no complaints!"
Cons: "We were stopped by the Delta crew checking tickets as we got on to the flight. They let a party of 7 with a small child cut us in line. They even allowed another traveler to board with them. We were a party of 8 w/ 2 people in wheelchairs. They would not allow us all on & said only one could accompany them both. They were also very rude and unorganized."

Pros: "Delta employees are a cut above American AIrlines and I have to say everything went very well with the flight. THe last flight I took on American went horribly wrong and it was not even completed."

Pros: "Crews were nice"

Pros: "Everyone was friendly and got us to our destination"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Comfort ability to board earlier and being able to relax in Sky Club with good choice of refreshments. Staff on plane were very attentive as responded quickly to requests. Check in was much quicker than previously and staff were very friendly. I like being able to get boarding passes online which makes boarding much easier. I liked having space for comfort by seat"

Cons: "Seats have no leg room!!!"

Pros: "Excellent gate personnel, spacious and clean plane"
Cons: "Some crew members were a bit curt"

Pros: "Flight was ok."
Cons: "Soggy bun sandwich prepackaged with mayo that was not up my standards. Broken video screen meant no entertainment other than the book I brought."

Pros: "Good food, excellent service"
Cons: "Seats did not have enough storage."

Pros: "Good flight."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Entertainment was good and staff was pleasant"
Cons: "Delta assigns seats at boarding, miss when you could pick which seats you sit in. I bought my sisters ticket, hoping we would then be able to sit together but we both ended up in the middle in different rows."

Pros: "Friendly attitudes"

Cons: "Customer service was lack luster..."

Pros: "I don’t know what Delta could have done better on this two leg flight from Albuqueque to Miami via Atlanta . Yes we were in First Class and it was a (groan) 6:05 AM flight which meant that we were probably on time. But Delta’s 737-900 (to Atlanta) was very comfortable, the crew did everything well and the breakfast was quite good. (Make sure you try the quiche). We had the same crew on the next leg to Miam, who were surprised and gave us a warm welcome. There were only snacks in 1st for that short segment, but they were all we wanted."
Cons: "Air turbulence over the Midwest storms."

Pros: "Good food. Great service"
Cons: "Small seats. Crowded."

Pros: "No wifi couldn’t do any work"
Cons: "Was looking forward to completing some work but the wifi never came on."

Cons: "The plane was late to JFK and then we had to wait for them to deboard and prepare for us to get one. Now we are in DCA and we can’t even get to our gate for another 10 mins"

Pros: "Yet one more trip that reminds me why I refuse to fly any other airline than Delta. (I fly every week for work.) Top-rate LA crew, flights always departs on time, early to destination more than half the time. Comfortable seats, upgraded to Delta Comfort today. Gate agent was friendly, helpful and joking with passengers. Made it seem like we were all going on an adventure. Kudos to Delta all around!!"

Pros: "I was able to get a gluten free snack"
Cons: "Tried to get an upgrade at the gate and they said our ticket wouldn't allow it."

Pros: "The staff was so friendly, and funny!! Loved the movies offered and snack choices. Updated aircraft"

Pros: "The fact that there were no delays!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Entertainment, newer plane, great crew. and complimentary meal? fantastic."
Cons: "I checked in 12 hours in advance for both trips and was assigned a B seat toward the back of the plane for both, with no capability to select my seats in advance."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "This is my third flight this year with Delta and every time we wait for the "crew" to get off from another flight. And as soon as they get there we can board. It's getting very annoying. Fix it."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Having delayed flights"

Pros: "Very attentative."

Cons: "Luggage went elsewhere"

Pros: "Very helpful crew. Quick boarding process."
Cons: "Not much leg room, or space in seats."

Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."

Pros: "Everything is fine."
Cons: "No"

Cons: "No TV in the chair ,even no group TV The the crew member in the business class lady was too aggressive in her way as if we are working for her , too tide chairs"

Pros: "no drama ....just good, timely service."
Cons: "The seats are tight and sitting on the aisle is a bit uncomfortable for me but I didn't pay extra for a better location."

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: "Im stuck in London due to flight delays. I will never book with kayak again. I am so fed up with travel ticket i booked with kayak"

Pros: "The leg space was great for economy class. There was room for bags in the overhead. The movie selection was great."
Cons: "Boarding via bus.... first bus had kids, business class, and people who needed help. Second bus had everyone else. Both waited on the tarmac for the plane to be ready and both busses opened the doors at the same time. The families were swamped while trying to load the plane with kids in tow."

Pros: "The crew was pleasant and the entertainment was great. I had a wonderful experience."
Cons: "Perhaps meals. Maybe more options."

Cons: "I still think it makes more sense to board the seats in the back of the plane before those further forward. It is difficult to get past the people who stand in the aisle or take forever to try to put their bag in the overhead bin."

Pros: "Very nice flight, the food was super delicious and the crew very professional"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Crew, boarding, seat"
Cons: "Paris airport is extremely passenger unfriendly. Better to connect somewhere else"

Cons: "Wish we had empty seat between us, w both the same name it should hv been possible. Special meal bland"

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."

Pros: "Very friendly crew"

Cons: "Had to run thru airport to catch plane, thn long wait to board."

Pros: "Flying premier economy. Flight was on time...no crying babies. Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Long lines to get through boarding"

Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."

Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"

Pros: "Service, etc was great"
Cons: "There was so little leg room on the transatlantic fight that I could not even cross my legs in front of me. And I am a petite woman. My poor husband (thin and tall) could barely fit in his seat"

Cons: "Departure time go to plane was worst because there were not jetway. So people were with carry on to downstairs to reach the plane was very difficult and more difficult for with the baby passengers , elder lady, ...."

Cons: "It was awful. The staff was more concerned with flirting with guests than everyone else. The seats were absolutely terrible. Getting off the flight the flight attendant had her back turned to everyone but made sure that the guests in first class were greeted as they discarded the air craft. As soon as she left everyone else from economy off the plane she didn’t even say have a good day, rather she had a nasty look on her face. This will be the last time I fly Lufthansa."

Pros: "The entire crew was very professional and friendly, and I could tell that each one of them really liked their job. I am a seasoned traveler and have flown in the past on every major and minor airline, and I have to rate my flight LH424 from Munich to Boston as one of the best."
Cons: "I cannot think of a thing that I did not like."

Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"

Pros: "Staff was nicer on this flight verus the first flight."
Cons: "My tv didnt work. They tried to reset it twice. So 9 hours without entertainment sucks!"

Pros: "The crew was excellent. Attentive and respectful of people (which did notified on the Lufthansa leaving US for Munich). The crew has a tough job at all hours of the day, but passengers as clients are just people cramped for 8 hrs and trying to enjoy their time as well,and this crew from Munich to US seemed to get that."
Cons: "The seats in economy are extremely close (front to back) for short people leg room is fine, for general height (5'4" women; 5' 10" men) and above it is unhealthy for a 6 -8 hr flight."

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: "Once onboard the flight was excellent and trouble-free. The crew were efficient and pleasant to passengers. I must give a big credit to Lufthansa for its great on-board entertainment system and good quality screens."
Cons: "Boarding in San Jose: For the first time I saw a Lufthansa person physically checking the weight of cabin backage at the gate. This was was not very pleasant experience as he approached us asking questions why we had so much cabin baggage, when our children were in bathroom and assumed me and my wife had 4 pieces of baggage, when we had 1 each and then left without apologising."

Pros: "Great customer services, Very outstanding staff."

Pros: "The services provided by United were good, although we were delayed due to mechanical issues. However, we were kept informed and made comfortable."
Cons: "I did not know when I booked through Lufthansa that it was a United flight, so I could not check in online and I was not able to order my gluten-free meal. Also, since it was Lufthansa, I was not able to download the entertainment system onto my portable device because I did not know I needed to."

Pros: "Cabin crew was friendly helpful and courteous. Service was very good even t hough the flight was completely full."
Cons: "The seating on this aircraft is inadequate for a long flights. Tall people really suffer due to seat size and spacing. There was a 6"6" man of median weight for his height who was in the middle seat next to me and he could barely fit into his seat. It was not his fault, rather the unrealistic expectation that airline seats actually fit today's customer. Not only is there not enough leg room, but the width of the seat leaves no room for arms or shoulders. No one should have to ride 7-plus hours touching the shoulders of the passenger next to them! I used to prefer to fly on Lufthansa because their seating was more comfortable than other carriers, but I will try another airline next time."

Cons: "Lufthansa cancelled the flight with no reason That is right, they took the fare and cancelled the flight Passenger has no rights with this airline Stay away from Lufthansa"

Cons: "The cabin got a little hot during the night and made it hard to be comfortable. Also, the seats lean pretty far back so I had little room in front of me when the person sitting in front of me leaned their seat all the way back."

Pros: "The people in the crew were very nice"
Cons: "The two seats that I paid for were the worst seats I've ever had in a plane They were the back two seats of the plane they were so small you should not have them there. I am a small person I had no room my wife is small she had no room. When the seat in front of me laid-back it almost hit my chest."

Pros: "Clean, friendly environment, friendly staff."
Cons: "Little space. No wifi. The food was from a Russian vendor, which is good, except the bread rolls where puffy and from the freezer. I don't think it was butter, more like margarine."

Cons: "Food was served burning hot, and nobody came over to collect the trays in for minutes"

Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."

Pros: "Plenty of room"
Cons: "Lack of good movies"

Pros: "Our first flight was late. We were met at the gate immediately after landing and were brought individually and directly to our next flight behind the scene, including passport control. Excellent."
Cons: "I wish Lufthansa would find a way to create less trash. Too many small plastic cups are used. Proved refill options rather than new cups."

Pros: "The flight crew was wonderful! Friendly and really attentive the whole trip!"

Cons: "I will never fly Lufthansa again anywhere"

Pros: "The staff at check in was very helpful!! Great service!"
Cons: "You need to pay $35 per seat to reserve."

Pros: "Prompt boarding and takeoff, good space, comfortable seats, good food."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The lufthansa planes are very nice and always comforting."
Cons: "We left late for absolutely no reason to be said. We landed late then in Frankfurt and instead of parking at a gate, we parked at the tarmac and had to wait for a bus to take us to the terminal. Then my layover was at the very end of the terminal. All of this combined caused me and some 30 other passengers to miss their connecting flight to Chicago. Just poor management of the flight."

Pros: "The aircraft was very clean."

Pros: "Plane seemed newer and clean."
Cons: "Boarding seemed a bit chaotic. Seating was cramped."

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "It was great because the flight was half emty and there was plenty of room..."

Pros: "The crew was very attentive and willing to assist with everything."

Cons: "I paid extra for the seat but it was very cramped."

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."

Pros: "We had mobility assistance.They were excellent"

Cons: "Only one round of drinks served?"

Cons: "Baggage delayed on arrival"

Pros: "On time, standard flight for BA no frills airline."
Cons: "Not the best organised inflight service,"

Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "The food, inflight entertainment. Our flight was delayed by over an hour."

Pros: "Seats were nice"
Cons: "Complementary water... It was a decently long fly not to offer anything."

Pros: "The people from British airways were incredibly helpful."
Cons: "British airways pushed the flight time which made the original connection flight from Heathrow impossible. They notified justfly the company who we used to book the flight and told them the reservation would be cancelled. Only justfly never did something about that. They did not notify us about any changes and when we arrived at the airport the lady at the counter told us we don't have a reservation even though justfly happily took our money. If it weren't for the BA staff who rebooked is through Air France we probably wouldn't have made it."

Pros: "Crew very friendly. Decent leg room in economy"

Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly staff"
Cons: "Very poor movie choice and poor quality screen"

Pros: "I appreciated regular fluids; water and juices being brought around as this was quite a long haul-13hrs. Staff were good, although I would say less"
Cons: "The food was still ho-hum, ordinary. I would have thought exiting Singapore food could have been very tasty, some spice etc."

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: "Plane kept to time schedule fabulous"
Cons: "Traveling economy"

Pros: "The Crew were great"
Cons: "Boarding could have been more efficient"

Pros: "Crew, boarding process, food, cleanliness, movie choices were all good."
Cons: "There should still be more leg room in coach. The screen in just my seat had a "loose connection", as it was a bit blurry sometimes -- enough to be annoying, but I still watched a movie OK. No other screens around me had the problem; they were crystal-clear."

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"

Cons: "The only problem that I had with my flight is that my luggage did not arrive on the same flight. Possibly due to my connecting flight from DCA to JFK. Both American Airlines and British Airways reassured me that it would be at Gatwick Airport when I arrived. Unfortunately, it did not. It took approximately four days to get my luggage. This was definitely a lessons learned."

Pros: "The crew were amazing, friendly, attentive and quick at everything they did"
Cons: "The entertainment screens were a little old and battered - scratched and all, which meant a reduced viewing experience"

Pros: "Great crew, quiet flight, good food,"

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: "So the 777 WTP is definitely more comfortable than the 787. Much better than the Beijing leg outbound. Entertainment option also improved as outbound they hadn’t changed since August."
Cons: "Dining options in WTP poor with breakfast being a major fail. English was potatoes, spinach, beans and mushrooms. Alternative was the same but with a slice of tomato replacing the beans and spinach. Inedible."

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 were great"
Cons: "The meal served left much to be desired."

Pros: "Nice aircraft and decent service. Cleanliness was good."

Pros: "Wonderful customer service and hot meal was a lovely treat!!"

Cons: "No direct communication. Really bad"

Pros: "Staff was very nice."
Cons: "I feel it is very cheap of the airline to charge for all food and beverages during the flight. A small snack and complimentary water/soda/juice would have gone a long way."

Cons: "Plane was extremelly cold.Came back with bronchitis, missed day of work.Attendent claimed they do not have blankets, but at least came later one with one. Seat could have been broken was uncomfortabe sit on,"

Cons: "Delayed twice, switched gates, AND forced to gate check my carry on "because the plane was small" and supposedly they were having everyone check their bags. Except that didn't turn out to be true. Frustrating although baggage claim had bags waiting when we got through customs."

Cons: "Noise level when people were trying to sleep; seats not too comfortable"

Cons: "My flight was cancelled because I missed the first half of a round-trip flight, even though I phoned several times to explain that I still wanted to use the return trip. This practice seems almost criminal. I paid for the flight, I should have been able to use it."

Cons: "terrible entertainment option. plane interior was old and only way to have entertainment was using my own device, which was a phone and has a small screen. on the way back it was great"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We made thru customs and rescreening and still 18 minutes early. The gate agent literally closed the gate right I front of us. Argued that they closed the flight.

Cons: "I have no complaints."

Pros: "We left 25 minutes later, but arrived 25 minutes early!! I hVe flown many times and that has never happened!!"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The carrier was supposed to be Alaska it turned out to be American Airlines and with that comes the confusion checking in with the wrong confirmation number. On a separate note, this was a bundled itinerary and the Thrifty Car shuttle was so infrequent and slow to the terminal I nearly missed my flight... I am not sure if I would bundle my travel plans again..,,also Thrifty car rental was short on cars in Liz Angeles on arrival"

Pros: "We had a really nice, friendly and fun male flight attendant."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly. On time departure and landing."

Pros: "Awesome crew. On time."

Pros: "inflight entertainment was good; food was so-so"

Pros: "Great flight crew price was right and I will travel American again!"
