Airline reviews

Pros: "Covid safety protocols and people following was excellent."
Cons: "Serve alcohol :)"

Pros: "The crew was nice"

Pros: "Nothing, the flight was canceled without a refund. I highly recommend canceling all business with kiwi in the future."
Cons: "My flight could have occurred or I could have been refunded."

Pros: "Being on time with everything."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Really felt happy on time touch down nice journey with delta"

Pros: "Friendly crew"

Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Customer service"

Cons: "Great flight. We were delayed but the crew kept us well informed and tried to make up time in the air"

Pros: "The crew was amazing! The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Used the self check in kiosk to begin! That was awesome! But after that I still had to stand in line to check in my bags. That part of the process took a bit longer than expected."

Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "That was the most uncomfortable and cramped seat I had ever had on a plane flight. Even sitting on the pillow did not help."

Cons: "I had an isle seat. I felt jostled all the time."

Pros: "I like that I arrived at my destination safely."
Cons: "My allergies were bothering me due to the airlines allowing animals to travel as passengers, in this case a rabbit. I am very allergic to animals. My breathing was compromised."

Pros: "This had one of the best attendants I have encountered. She was extra friendly and made us feel good."

Pros: "Boarding time, and timely departure"

Cons: "The flight was 2 hours delayed.. this cause a lot of inconvienece.."

Pros: "Everything was on time and efficient. I also liked that the captain came on and updated us on arrival, turbulence, weather, etc."

Pros: "The staff"

Cons: "Flight was delayed out of St. Louis causing several of us to miss our connecting flight from Salt Lake City to Portland. Delta was of very little help in assisting us in making a connecting flight. They could have at least helped with travel arrangements and provided us with a little food, a pillow and a blanket as we waited in their terminal for the next flight on their airline which was a several hour wait. I understand these things happen but the passengers didn't cause the problem and Delta needs to take care of people better if they expect to earn repeat business."

Pros: "Everything. Very nice accommodating ok"

Cons: "Ac not working at last 30 minutes of flight."

Pros: "A great flight overall. Delta provided a lot of entertainment options. Flight attendants were very friendly."
Cons: "I don’t like that we had to pay for our checked bag."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We lost our whole vacation and had to pay for the plans fare twice because My last name was spelled wrong on our tickets and we were unable to use them because my passport didn’t match the name on the ticket. We had to rebook everything pay almost twice as much for the plane fare, our Lodi g cost more and our trip was delayed for two weeks. Vyama is blaming us for spelling our name wrong and claimes that it’s our fault this happened because everything is automated. There saying they don’t touch anything that we enter into the booking but somehow everything they claim we entered is now in all capital letters and the space between our first name and middle name is now gone and all run together. The coustomer service number gets you to someone in India. I have tried to get this addressed four times now at first they tried to place the responsibility on the airlines now us and they have hung up on me twice. Kayak has been worthless, they also just pass the responsibility on to someone else. We will never use them again ant I intend to make sure that this mess is put out in social media to hopefully keep others from having their travel plans ruined by their flawed system."

Cons: "They changed my flight to a different one departing 2 hours earlier and did not notify me! The original flight was still available & they would not let me take it despite my reservation paper work. CRAZY! I have a two hour drive to the airport this gave me the option to leave home at 2:30am or go the night before and pay for a hotel. Flight was managed by DELTA who also did not care! All involved blamed each other. Beware"

Cons: "Aircraft seemed shabby despite refresh of Comfort Plus, food was really mediocre. Steer clear of the Asian Veg option."

Cons: "Long wait for de-Icing. Got on and off the plane 3 times. First wait was 1 hour, but plane aborted takeoff. Second plane waited at gate with all aboard for 2-1/2 hours and never got slot and de-planed. Third plane waited 1-1/2 hours for de-Icing and finally we were headed home. Arrived 8.5 hours after schedule."

Cons: "Older plane and seemingly frustrated crew. They had very little patience."

Pros: "Service was fast and the inflight entertainment is free. Lots of movies to chose from, which is nice for the long flight."
Cons: "It was the most cramped I have ever felt in a plane and also the longest flight. Horrible combination. Some of the crew were snippy."

Pros: "In flight movies"
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours late taking off which made us miss our connection to chicago so we are stuck in Atlanta tonight with unplanned expenses we were not planning on!"

Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Seatbelts very short given ample seat size"

Pros: "Everything from the check-in to the landing was great. We were well informed about what was going on with out luggage (we were on a regional flight) and the assortment of free snacks were superb! I guess I'll be a returning customer"
Cons: "I was expecting some form of entertainment (radio, overhead monitor, etc) on the CRJ700. But it really don't take away from the experience since T-Mobile partnered with the Wi-Fi service and I received a free hour of Wi-Fi!"

Pros: "I was thankful for the early boarding with a lap infant and was very pleased with the options for entertainment on the TV monitor."
Cons: "The main issue I had was that we sat in row 34 and the noise from the engines often made it difficult to hear announcements, even with headphones in. Look into possibly zoning the audio and turning it up a click or two for rows behind the engines."

Cons: "The fact that booking with kayak wouldn't let me pick my seats and traveling with 2 kids under 4 it made it very stressful trying to figure out how we could sit together or even the same end of the plane."

Cons: "My flight got to New York so late!!!! I missed my international flight."

Cons: "Not great communication from gate or staff on board. Failed to provide adequate water. No ice on super warm flight. Just bad experience overall."

Pros: "The gate agents and flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "We were not able to choose our seats until we got to the airport. Which was a waste of time since we did online check in but still needed to go to the self check for seat assignment. Then by that time it was too late to try to get a seat with my wife who is very afraid to fly. Overall not a good experience"

Pros: "Spacious, clean, great host and hostesses. The flight arrived at our destination 30 minutes early."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Newer plane! Comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing just great"

Cons: "Not enough water on the flight and we landed in a parking lot and shuttled back to the airport."

Pros: "Nothing to speak of. Nothing exceptional from any other airline - basic"

Cons: "turbulance"

Cons: "The small plane. It was cold the whole flight. The flight attendant woke me up right before landing just to make sure I had my seatbelt on. Why was that necessary? I'm not a child. Just because I was covered in my blanket he assumed I was using that to cover up that I took my seatbelt off. He also told me to put my purse on the floor which was odd to me because when I was on the flight Saturday Oct 10 from MSP to LSE the flight attendant never said anything."

Pros: "I was cleared for standby! Flight attendant at the stl gate is always friendly and willing to help! I love her!"
Cons: "I waited almost 6 hours on the phone the night before the flight to get on standby! Almost didn't get the flight! Was charged $50 only to not get on my next flight because it was over booked! Flight attendant was very rude!"

Pros: "I liked that I was able to get able to get an earlier flight!"
Cons: "I don't like that I had to pay $50 extra dollars for standby on both legs of my flight! I am a very loyal delta customer and these past times flying I feel like my favorite airline is turning into the bad airlines delay everytime, problems with the plane fare prices too high! I'm starting to think about taking my business elsewhere!"

Pros: "10 minutes early departure"
Cons: "There isn't enough seats in the gate area and sitting on the runway for 10 extra minutes we could have been early"

Pros: "Ground crew screwed up"

Pros: "I enjoyed their entertainment movie choices!"
Cons: "I did not enjoy their food it was simple without taste. Crew member did not know what kind of chicken was being served!"

Pros: "It was great and very roomy I felt like a movie STAR!!!"
Cons: "N.A"

Pros: "The fight was delayed but they gave us complimentary drinks on the flight. Nice."

Pros: "On time flight. Comfort seats"

Cons: "Exiting passengers from the rear exposed the entire flight as people had to walk past those seated from the back to front. Great social distancing and we'll done British Airways"

Pros: "No and no."
Cons: "Very crowded in.club class. Way lower standard for business class as compared to the other airlines."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and everything was perfectly on time!"

Cons: "4 hs delay"

Pros: "The flight was on time and landed early"
Cons: "The bags could have come out earlier and the food could be better"

Cons: "I made a mistake in my daughter's surname while booking online, BA refused ro change it at check-in and forced me to buy a new ticket for her."

Pros: "Leg room fantastic"

Pros: "The crew were very attentive and there was a large variety of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "I am not a heavy set guy but the seats were unreasonably close to each other, this meant that when you eat a meal your elbows push into your sides making it hard to bring food to your mouth."

Cons: "Direct flights to and from South Africa to USA not via Middle East"

Cons: "Very narrow seats"

Pros: "The crew, the food and the smooth journey."

Cons: "Seating is a big problem. I am only 192 cm tall and cannot really fit my legs into the space. Have them out in the corridor"

Pros: "That the flight was on time."
Cons: "not applicable."

Cons: "Seat was broken. Reclines without requesting. Tray also needs attention. Seat 15C"

Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "Nothing. Pretty good for a short trip."

Cons: "Better business class seats"

Cons: "Delayed, twice!"

Pros: "New Years flight... very special. Great staff and grear entertainment on board"
Cons: "The flight data was not showing... could have been interesting especially on a New Years flight"

Pros: "This was a charter by BA. Airbus A320 with amazing legroom. Was slightly annoyed by them not having coffee ( to wake me up for the drive home) but I suppose I get why they weren’t serving hot beverages."
Cons: "The beverages thing above."

Cons: "Don’t like the business class seating configuration. The entertainment system played up and only worked in half the cabin. They tried to fix it without success"

Pros: "The A380 is roomy with large overhead bins. Its quiet and smooth. Flight was on time!!"
Cons: "It was impossible to select a seat in advance. I could not even get to seat selection at online checkin. It was very frustrating. When I went to BA in London and Los Angeles they said it was responsibility of AA and when I went to AA in London & Los Angeles they referred me back to BA. Why can I not choose seats like on other airlines????"

Pros: "BA in South Africa run a clean efficient airline. Planes are new crew well trained and food is good."
Cons: "Preseating totally random no matter your status. Booked state of my choice well in advance and was presented at the back of the plane on check-in"

Pros: "Customer service was helpful as they could possibly be.. once you are able to contact them."
Cons: "It was very difficult to contact customer service if the hours are not a time the office in NY, USA is open."

Pros: "I liked that we landed 30 minutes in advance for both flights to and back, compared to the other parallel flight via SAA which was delayed 2 hours when we arrived back."
Cons: "I didn't like the cheese roll I asked for as the whole roll and cheese was literally stuck to the bottom and parts of the bottom of the roll were mushy. The staff were professional but lacked personality and seemed a little hollow."

Pros: "I liked the seats that I got. Staff were friendly and it was a comfortable flight overall."
Cons: "There wasn't enough drinks (water etc) coming around after meals."

Pros: "Food was tasty"
Cons: "Was delayed"

Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding."
Cons: "The way that the crew (both in economy on right of plane) spoke to, and handled sensitive situations with several of the passengers in a loud and rather rude manner. This is not the British way that I have been accustomed to on previous BA flights, and is rather upsetting. The crew were very abrupt in general, and did not have that seasoned and polite demeanor which I expect from BA."

Pros: "BA moved me on to the Kulula flight without any fuss and gave me a meal voucher."
Cons: "I got to the airport to find that my 19:15 flight had been delayed to 22:15. I hadn't received any notification from BA and still do not know the reason for the delay. The only other option available was for BA to put us on the 20:20 Kulula flight to Lanseria and then shuttle us from Lanseria to OR Tambo. It really is not pleasant to get back home so late on a week night and not even be given any warning or any reason for the huge delay."

Pros: "Crew were excellent. Very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Boxes under the seat in front took up legroom (but it did ensure good entertainment options). Could have offered some more drinks."

Pros: "The staff was great, friendly, helpful and professional."
Cons: "I thought the food lacked imagination, was skimpy and too hot. I burned my mouth several times. I really do not like having to pay for a booked seat. I have special needs at my age and so booking early is how I typically make sure I can access the bathrooms easily without climbing over sleeping passengers. I picked flight for the price, but in the end I should have stuck with Delta, KLM and Air France and got the extra miles as with seat bookings and only one bag allowance, what I ended up paying did not make it worth it. Oh well, live and learn. Seats were tight, anyone bigger than me would have really struggled."

Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "My wife and I having to sit in separate seats when there were seats available next to each other. Being charged excess baggage when one suitcase was weigh under weight"

Pros: "All the normal stuff of flying domestic."
Cons: "The way that my brand new suitcase was damaged on the flight and BA just said that handles are excluded from bag damage. Thus, they can do what ever they want with your bag's handles, manhandle it and not take any responsibility. My suitcase was clearly damaged by the way it was handled since i booked it in till i received it again and they just said sorry...there is nothing we can do for you!!! Now that is is poor customer service."

Pros: "I have physical limitations and required assistance stowing overhead luggage and help getting out of seat. Crew were terrific. Wheelchair assistance also great. Travels on my own."

Cons: "Sorry I can’t give you feed back, because I missed flight due to my own fault!"

Pros: "Made up for time due to a big tail wind"
Cons: "Took off late and had to wait 45 minutes for luggage"

Pros: "Flight was on time,actually ahead of time."
Cons: "Aircon was not efficient. Very hot in the plane."

Pros: "The space on the A380 is nice, comfortable seats, and the crew was very considerate"
Cons: "No between meals drinks (like water, etc.) or snacks left out on this 11 hour flight. The seats are still a bit close together... for the comfort of a long legged man behind me, I was not really able to recline my chair at all."

Pros: "crew was very welcoming which made our journey very comfortable"

Pros: "787 is a great plane and was very comfortable. Even my 6'6" husband praised it. Cabin crew went above and beyond in all respects."

Pros: "Aside from the typically narrow seats, the service included all the hallmarks of higher-tier service, such as hot towels, cloth napkins, a good meal, and so on. The crew was attentive, as well."

Pros: "Timely."
Cons: "The airplane was really old. The screens wouldn't start for a really long time. Very, very few options for movies and the screen and sound had terrible quality. Food was not really good."

Pros: "Staff was extremely friendly"
Cons: "Seats were too close and comfort was hard for the long flights. I wish premium economy was better explained to one world partners prior to booking so there would be access to better seats."

Cons: "$100 just to choose a seat ? $100 for a 2nd bag? A Kellogg's bar for breakfast? Shame on them."

Pros: "Strong tailwind brought us in 30mins ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Nothing. Was a smooth and friendly flight. Cabin crew were courteous and efficient."

Pros: "That the flight only came in 15 minutes late."
Cons: "An old beat up plane in desperate need of renovation especially for a long haul flight. Only one nice flight attendant who tried to help. Others not interested. Terrible seat that I tried to move with no success. Did not eat anything or watch any entertainment. Very unpleasant experience. I have flown this route many times and next time I would fly Swiss through Zurich or Geneva as I have done before."

Cons: "Took forever to serve cold drinks and food. Said we were going to have a short flight due to tail wind so they would not serve hot drinks. Mean while we landed at the expected time of arrival."

Pros: "Great food. Ground staff were very accommodating."
Cons: "Flight crew attitude. Cramped seating."

Pros: "Everything was good after we finally left."
Cons: "Due to mechanical issues, flight was canceled. Missed a day of our honeymoon as a result. Compensation offered as a result was unsatisfactory."

Cons: "Kayak/priceline re-booked my flight for my sister and I from SAA to BA, but failed to completely reissue us tickets. When we checked in for the flight, we had no ticket for the first leg of the flight, but we had tickets for the remaining flights. We immediately called to fix this problem, but due to slow customer service, we weren't issued tickets in time and the flight left without us. We missed all remaining connecting flights and were forced to buy New tickets. Now we have to work with kayak/priceline to get all my money back due to their error. We came back a day later than expected and missed going back to work."

Pros: "Gold muffin."
Cons: "Lots of turbulence so only business class got drinks does not make sense how is it that turbulence only stops economic people from getting drinks."

Cons: "The service and the flight connection which we missed because of the short amount of time in between the 2 flights. They didn't wait for us, as we got told they would, since our first flight was with Iberia. And this flight was late"

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Late and bad communication"

Pros: "modern plane, large overhead bins, comfy seat with adjustable headrest, very good entertainment system"
Cons: "There was a broken restroom on the plane in the main section, so then, they should keep an eye on the remaining restrooms as they get dirtier sooner. Madrid barajas airport is an ordeal, Iberia needs to explain better that passport control happens when you get to terminal 4S on the tram AND then there are TWO more passport controls. then there isn't enough space for people to line up for the various groups, creating friction. Iberia just needs to be more organized."

Pros: "Crew was good from Rime to Madrid, however my connection from Madrid to JFK, service was not good, i felt ignore when asking for water"
Cons: "Took to long to service, and customer service was lacking"

Pros: "Puntualidad"
Cons: "Incomodos los asientos para un vuelo trasatlántico"

Cons: "Still waiting for luggage 2 hours after flight arrived."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Very small plane, so much turbulence during flight. It was the worst."

Pros: "Don’t feel fully informed of what is going on. Had overhead bin opened and seat reclined during takeoff."

Pros: "Got In ahead of schedule"
Cons: "The boarding process"

Cons: "We we’re delayed 3 1/2 hours causing us to miss our flight to San Sebastian. That, in turn, caused us to miss our check in for our hotel that we had already paid for so we ended up spending $300 on nothing."

Pros: "It was my first flight with Iberia - I was very pleased with the entire experience."

Pros: "I had a problem finding ticket number for a return ticket. It took an hour at boarding but Iberia rep. found it and saved the day. She really cared and got the job done. Can't say enough about this Argentine rep. Also this was an international flight and they did Not hassle us about the weight of our carry on. Last year Etihad weighed our purses with a bathroom scale at the door of the aircraft. Outrageous. Slowed boarding for over an hour and cost passengers an average of $150 - $320."
Cons: "Food was terrible all around. Didn't pass out water during 11 hour flight and all the "good" movies didn't load."

Pros: "Boarding was excellent and crew also food was good."
Cons: "Seats to small. Like sardines for 8 hours. Almost no leg room"

Pros: "Very little - other than getting off"
Cons: "Every detail from rude checking all the way through rudness"

Pros: "excellent"

Pros: "I never got on this flight."
Cons: "I was at the airport more than 2 hours ahead of my flight time. By the time I made it through check in, security, and immigration, I was already cutting it close. A random security check right at the gate made me miss my flight. There were no timely options to re-route my flight unless it was at a fee of over >$2,000. Horrible, stressful, experience."

Cons: "Changed our seat without notification and didn't help. We talked to 4 gate agents, the boarding gate agent and 3 crews, and they didn't try to help, at all. The pillow had coffee stains and eye make up, even though they were wrap in plastic...."

Pros: "The movies and the leg room seemed better then normal"

Pros: "Madrid's airport is comfortable and modern."
Cons: "Unless you paid you do not even get a seat assigned until you get to the airport. No food or even drink unless you pay."

Pros: "It was a regular flight Seats worked entertainment worked Staff did their jobs without many smiles but they did it"
Cons: "staff was somewhat distracted doing their duty but not attuned to peoples needs I wanted more water Had to ask twice OH I forgot was the answer I got Otherwise all was fine"

Pros: "Our seats were very comfirtabke"
Cons: "Nothing, it was all great!"

Cons: "Online check in failed, and legroom was non-existent - the worst of any alliance-based carrier I have ever flown."

Pros: "After explaining to the woman that I would like yogurt or something in the box one of the attendants offered me her food and warmed it up"
Cons: "The fact one attendant didn’t empathize that I was unable to order my food and didn’t try to help me eat something and basically said too bad, I’m sorry.a pleasant surprise being"

Cons: "The service was aweful. Right from getting my ticket, to getting served on the flight. Staff needs major improvement."

Pros: "clean, good entertainment services, and service from crew"
Cons: "delayed start, very cold temp. during flight"

Cons: "late departure from boston resulted in late arrival in madrid.More than 12 passengers missed the connecting flight to malaga by about ten minutes. iberia could have delayed the flight to malaga and its customers would have had a much better day."

Cons: "Our luggage did not arrive. They told us it was sent to another city by mistake and that they would get it to us as soon as it arrived. It's a long story but we didn't get the bag for a week. We called multiple times and got very little help. We finally got the bag, but had to buy new clothes to get by in the meantime."

Pros: "Our flight to Bologna via Madrid on Iberia Airlines was wonderful from take off to landing! Friendly, courteous staff. Good food and entertainment."

Pros: "Entertainment was nice and the rise was very smooth."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "My flight went smooth and on time. I think we were early. The service is impeccable. Most in-flight meals are pretty crummy if you get one at all. The flight I took wasn't packed somthere was plenty of room. Even if it was there was still a fair amount of space. The entertainment was way better than the ole " everyone get to watch the same thing. Wi-Fi, new releases, even some classic 80's. if you get bored on this flight you really don't deserve to fly internationally."
Cons: "I"lol have to fly them again and find some fault. They worked on my flight and my Mother flew with Iberia and had the same good impression."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "I really enjoy flying in your airline"

Pros: "Entertainment was excellent. I appreciated the blanket, headphones, and pillow. One of the staff was very rude to the gentleman next to me because he asked for tea after she passed by with it the first time."

Pros: "The senior flight attendant was responsive."
Cons: "I paid for 2 tickets and 2 seats. My friend was ill but I didn't cancel her seat. I was not given the paid for aisle seat. I was given the middle seat and a last minute person was given my seat!"

Pros: "Everything was great including staff, entertainment (movie/show options) and luckily an extremely smooth flight."

Pros: "Crew were really nice and polite"
Cons: "No entertainment, I can't believe how close the seats are to each other. I'm not a very tall person and my knees were hitting the front seat constantly (and the kness of the passenger seating behind me of course)"

Pros: "Fast and clean. Smooth ride."

Cons: "Lost luggage, hot plane, charged for water"

Pros: "Lots of leg room, comfortable and very nice staff."
Cons: "See Above. There was a 2.5 hour delay. I was worried I would not make my flight to Vigo, but I did"

Pros: "Speed of boarding and free wine!"
Cons: "Despite asking the crew 3x, the TV in my seat did not work. Each time I asked it was like they were hearing it for the first time. They wrote down my seat number and never came back. Thankfully I had a book! The seats were horribly uncomfortable and my legs and behind went numb several times. The food was awful and I regret eating it as I had a stomachache for several hours."

Cons: "LAMENTABLEMENTE ESTE VUELOFUE MUY POBRE Y NO ACEPTABLE PARA EL NIVEL ESPERADO , N O IMAGINE PASARIA POR ESTA EXPERIENCIA. PARAPODER RECOMENDAR LA AEROLINEA A OTROS , HUBIESEN TENIDO QUE OFRECER UN MEJOR SERVICIO. ME DESPIDO CON EL DESEO QUE CAMBIE ESTA TORPE SITUACION. ALICIA"

Pros: "The entertainment was good and some flight attendants were very polite."
Cons: "The last thing I would ever expect from a flight attendant is negligent behavior. A child aged around 5 years old clearly unattended by parents throughout the entire 9 1/2 hour flight to Chicago was not only being disruptive but his behavior could have placed him in danger. From banging the table shut successively against the chair, to walking on top of the seat and placing his hands in the monitor behind him not allowing me to see my screen. Furthermore, his feet and legs dangled and kicked the person immediately next to him across the aisle, creating a dangerous environment for himself and for others as he could have gotten hurt from somebody or a cart passing through. I proceeded to express my concern for the child's safety and the flight attendant expressed these matters are delicate and refused to engage the parent in any type of conversation. This child's screams and incessant yelling lasted the entirety of my flight, hindering ANYBODY from sleeping or watching their entertainment without interruption. Hopefully in the future when faced with not only an extremely disruptive family but a clinically uneasy child, flight attendants will make an effort to at least announce the importance of respecting other people's flight experience. Needless to say this is the very last time I ever fly Iberia. This matter was not only brought to the crew's attention once but three times by three different people."

Cons: "According to my itinerary, we were scheduled to fly from Marrakech to Casablanca on Royal Moroccan Airlines flight 402. There was no flight. My itinerary also said we were to fly out of Casablanca on American Airlines. After sitting at the gate for over 2 hrs. in Marrakech,one of the ground crew members told us our flight had been canceled, but we were never notified. The supervisor refused to give us a letter stating that they screwed up by either sending us to the wrong gate, or that the flight had been canceled so I could get my money back thru my travel insurance. She said the flight was not cancelled so it wasn't her fault. No flight left from our gate. She refused to help us book another flight. I had no smart phone to book another flight and she told me, that was too bad. I asked what should I do, she said "that is your problem not mine, I cannot help you." There were 2 others they sent to the wrong gate and 6 others who had the same problem as us. Later 2 others, on a different flight with RAM, walked up to the ticketing section and said they were sent to the wrong gate and missed their flight too. I need a letter from someone so I can retrieve my $1800 back from my travel insurance because we had to book other flights and stay an extra day in a hotel in Casablanca. I don't feel that is asking too much. We were there early to fly out and did everything they told us to do. Luckily, someone cared enough to let me use their smart phone to book another flight and hotel or this could of been a real tragedy."

Pros: "The crew was AMAZING"

Pros: "Madrid airport is seriously beautiful Flight departed on time Seats was lie flat and comfortable Food was best of any European business class"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was over two hours delayed; flight attendants mostly ignored economy cabin, closed the curtains and chatted in their little area, and took a really long to respond to calls for attention to get water etc."

Pros: "The crew was fabulous! And the ride was on time and had plenty of entertainment."
Cons: "My only complaint is that the seats were very tight in the economy class. We were packed like cattle. I know these were the "cheap" seats but for almost $1500 I would hope for a bit more comfort."

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Checking was a mess : Could only check in for the first flight, checkin for the second time was available 24h before the second flight, and when I finally was able to check in, it failed. so I had to check in at the desk in Paris. I also was not sure if I had to checkin at the AA desk or Iberia desk : ended up being AA, but you all should be clear about this and say it on your confirmation email for multi company flights. My ticket said Iberia but the flight was handled by AA. Food was awful and no personal screen in the plane, but that's not your fault."

Pros: "Got to my destination safe and sound"
Cons: "Staff has bad attitude. Food was cold. Entertainment was awful."

Cons: "Terrible American Airlines customer service. Avoid AA including "alliances" with other airlines."

Pros: "Iberia flight frim Barcelona ti Madrid my bags dis nit arruved. Now I am in Puerto Rico and my bags still lost"
Cons: "Iberia flight frim Barcelona ti Madrid my bags dis nit arruved. Now I am in Puerto Rico and my bags still lost"

Pros: "First flight from STL to ORD was amazing. I was upgraded to 1st class...not sure why. Robert was a fantastic flight attendant."
Cons: "There was a delay on my second flight from ord to gsp bc there was some type of miscommunication/altercation with some passengers not wearing masks. I have been traveling since 11 am and it was annoying to have to wait another hour."

Cons: "The internet connection was terrible i was not able to see anything that was being offered"

Pros: "Very good no complaint at all"

Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "Cramped seating in basic economy, the upgrade seating wasn’t much better"

Pros: "Good flight, nice staff."
Cons: "Food not the greatest and flight over-crowded."

Pros: "Flight left on time. There was plenty of room. Nice staff."
Cons: "It was very cold on the plane because the valve for the heat was frozen."

Pros: "Very good service"

Pros: "Flight left on time and landed early. Attendants were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Food choices were very limited for a 4 hour flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Aircraft, cabin crew"

Pros: "The plane, crew and boarding was great, and the food and drinks were quite good. Legroom in standard economy class was passable for a 6'2" person."
Cons: "I booked through the United website as trip from US, have Silver status on United, and Lufthansa's policies of not allowing advance (1-2 mo before flight) seat selection (never on UA nor LH websites) are just horrible. Hard to get through on 800 number, and 1 day before trip answer was still to do it in Frankfurt. Economy plus was $1000 more/person, and even then no guarantee I could choose a seat far in advance. Then, at computer kiosk in Frankfurt, they had a wrong diagram of the plane,as we ended up on what turned out to be a no-recline row which I would never get. I'm 6'2", 230lbs, and wasn't able to sleep on that flight. Had I been able to reserve a seat behind a bulkhead or in exit row 2mos in advance, I would have been fine."

Pros: "Quick boarding, departed on time, arrived early, good cabin communication"
Cons: "This is a very cramped commuter jet, just one flight attendant to serve entire plane, she came by once for drinks but not a second time"

Pros: "Efficient crew. It"
Cons: "It was good overall."

Pros: "the fact that the flight arrived on time without delay and the gates were easy to locate."
Cons: "How on earth did my i arrived lagos and only one out of my two bags showed up, i have to extend my stay in lagos and hoping my bag will come the next day, i have to pay $100 extra just to extend my one night hotel booking to two nights."

Cons: "Our flight was delayed. We did not make the connecting flight. They would not provide us another flight same day or money back or money for the rental that we required."

Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "The flight was half empty and when I tried to move a row ahead of me (from economy to economy plus), the flight attendance rudely told me I had to move back to my seat since the economy plus seat was $70 more. However, a reasonable airline would upgrade their customers to first or economy plus to not only appease their customers but to fill some empty seats. Therefore, I had to spend the entirety of my redeye flights crammed next to someone while I was looking at an almost empty economy plus section. Also, we boarded earlier than expected but we spend an extra hour on the flight waiting to take off. I would not have minded boarding early if we had taken off early, but we took off an hour later."

Pros: "He was the epitome of the Friendly Skies. Chatted with whom wished to chat was quite near those that wanted to snooze on this early morning flight."

Pros: "The crew on the plane was nice and helpful."
Cons: "I understand pretzels for the most part are allergy friendly however I have a gluten intolerance so I couldn’t have them and i couldn’t download the United app because there wasn’t WiFi available anywhere in the terminal and there weren’t any charging stations."

Pros: "Everything was excellent! I even got upgraded to a window seat!"

Pros: "My wife was happy"
Cons: "Fixing my own supper"

Pros: "Service was excellent"

Pros: "That I didn't have to walk to Fargo. I wasn't dragged off a plane."
Cons: "3 flights to Fargo were cancelled. I was told I would not get to Fargo until 32 hours after my original time I was suppose to land in Fargo. After spending a fair amount of time on the phone with customer service I was able to get me on a Flight to Minneapolis that did not arrive till 1:30am then had to take a rental car to drive 3.5 hours to make it to my destination. I was not compensated for any of this. My return flight from Fargo to St. Louis was also Delayed. Both from Fargo and from Chicago. I have never experienced such poor scheduling from an airline or as many delays or cancelled flights in just a few day period."

Cons: "Never on time"

Pros: "Smooth and positive communication."

Pros: "Everything was smooth"

Pros: "I managed not to use toilet."
Cons: "An epic storm (April 27-May 4) caused my bicycle tour across MO to flood out during our trip. Rescheduling my flight back to CA cost &230..same price as RT. Gouging people leaving a massive flood! The governor of MO declared a State of Emergency yet my trip cancellation insurance didn't cover what was clearly beyond my control. I'm left with some hard feelings."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No meal on business, no free internet, no entertainment"

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: "Fast"

Cons: "All was perfect"

Pros: "The service was prompt and professional. The plane on this trip was clean and in good repair. The snack was simple and tasty. It was a pleasure flying United."
Cons: "The first flight from St. Louis to Chicago was very small. While I don't have concerns about flying in a small plane, I can imagine those nervous about air travel would feel concerned with the size of the aircraft."

Pros: "Good communication and helpful."
Cons: "Delays"

Pros: "The boarding process went smoothly and was on schedule."
Cons: "Overhead compartment filled up and it was hard funding space for my bag."

Cons: "Massive delays on both flights out of O'Hare... No leg room...."

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: "Good"
Cons: "Good"
