This flight was cancelled

Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"
Pros: "Crew and food"
Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment choices."
Cons: "It was a long flight, frequent offers of snacks and drinks would’ve been great."
Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."
Cons: "The lounge, they use the club lounge in Boston which was so so. Could we have use the one world BA lounge instead?"
Pros: "Crew were so good"
Cons: "Everything is good"
Pros: "flight attendants were not friendly enough."
Cons: "both flight from Bos-Doha, Doha-Hanoi was delayed"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "It could be better if they serve food from Doha to Islamabad."
Pros: "The crew, the seat and catering"
Cons: "the area I sat in smelled weird even though the crew helped spray a solution it didn’t help the smell .. Vegetarian meal is not good"
Pros: "The crew, especially Martin and Imen, were fabulous!"
Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."
Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Pros: "Our flight attendants were all amazing, but especially Joanna!! She was outstanding and went above and beyond to assist us in every way possible!!"
Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."
Pros: "inflight and qatar airport crews were accomodating eventhough there were backlogs due to delays caused by snow storm."
Cons: "The Ground crews in boston airport were not accomodating."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable and there was more room for our legs than most airline provide. The entire staff as well as the pilot certainly know what the term “service” means!"
Cons: "The website is not easy to navigate."
Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."
Pros: "Loved the food and entertainment."
Cons: "Not enough leg room and space between the chair in front."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"
Cons: "."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "my flight from Boston to Doha was deleyed and Qatar Airways have no arrangements for the passengers at the airport, I spent more then 15 hours in the transit on those chairs, there was no help provided by the airline"
Pros: "just enough time in Doha between flights. Not too long not too short!"
Cons: "Asian vegetarian food can be of better quality."
Pros: "good service, good food"
Cons: "staff could be more cheerful towards travellers"
Cons: "My 17 yr old son is stranded in Doha because Qatar cancelled his connection to Nairobi which is unprofessional and terribly worrisome . I, his mother, am in Greece with no way ofhelping him get to Kenya. Qatar offers no restitution and no help . The worst situation right now!"
Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."
Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"
Pros: "Staffs were helpful!"
Cons: "Food portion can be improved."
Pros: "Crew, food."
Cons: "Lack of communication. Flight was two hours late from Boston to Doha. Not once were we told about the length of delay or what we need to do about connecting flights. And toilets were very smelly right from the start as it seemed that itinerary has seeped into the floor over time. And there were only two items as a main course and one of them in very small quantity. I was told that too many veg main courses were loaded by mistake and very few non veg."
Pros: "Flawless boarding, service, food."
Cons: "We arrived 2 hours and 40 minutes late due to technical issues with the aeroplane. We were kept informed and we arrived safely, so this is a nibir complaint."
Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."
Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"
Cons: "The food was okay. The hot wrap/calzone served first was not very tasteful. The breakfast/brunch was better. Not much to dislike overall."
Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."
Pros: "I like that the air stewards bring you water and drinks throughout and don't judge you for being too thirsty. I like that they respect that it is a night flight and serve the meal quickly so it can be dark for the whole flight and you can sleep as much as you can. I like how efficient the layover is in Doha - only 40mins!"
Cons: "I don't like when they don't ask the person in front to move their chair up for the meal and the passengers have to ask each other. I don't like that they can't tell you the gate of your connecting flight and how long it will take to get you there - including if you will need to take a bus and the train. I think this could reduce a lot of anxiety. If they could do this, it would also be helpful to let people who have a connecting flight that is boarding in the next 30 mins off the plane first. This would save pushing and shoving in the aisles... and would also reduce anxiety about booking a flight with such a short layover."
Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"
Pros: "Food, service, staff at the counter"
Cons: "Cant think of any"
Cons: "Arrival in Johannesburg was a nightmare due to queues at immigration - I nearly missed my connecting flight. This was not the fault of Quatar airlines but needs to be taken up with the authorities at OT Airport in Johannesburg"
Pros: "The staff were welcoming and friendly. Their customer care is second to none. The food is excellent and i ate throughout my flight."
Cons: "The comfort was a bit below my expectations. Sitting on the seats along the isle was uncomfortable as they are closely placed. There is no enough room to move and to lean sideways when one wants to sleep. My tv was not working. The touch screen was not responding. However the friendly flight attendants shifted me to a vacant seat where the tv was working. The movie selection was limited. There were no documentaries about wildlife. Sport was also missing. We also need some news channels like Aljazeera, CNN & BBC so that we keep updated on issues happening throughout the world. This is very important especially to people like me who traveled long distances from South Africa to Los Angeles USA."
Cons: "baby food could have been served baby bassinet installed only after asking multiple times"
Pros: "M"
Pros: "Yes everything was perfect"
Cons: "Everything including food was excellent"
Pros: "The food and the selection of movies"
Cons: "Nothingn"
Pros: "customer service was great and the food :)"
Pros: "Every thing normal and in time"
Cons: "Food was everage"
Cons: "No usb chargers on plane"
Pros: "good people /service, good food and comfortable seating nice experience all in all"
Pros: "Turkish Airlines offers an experience much better than your average two-hour plane hop in the U.S. There was a full meal served, staff were kind and didn’t try to sell a bunch of extra stuff to you, and there were many choices for in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the children on the plane were really poorly behaved and loud. In addition, the flight was delayed by 1 full hour and when we arrived in Vienna our luggage (and the luggage of many other passengers) had not been sent with us. We waited in line for luggage for 30 minutes, then another line for at least 30 more minutes to report the missing bag, and we were then told that it wouldn’t arrive for another day and would be delivered to us within a 3 hour window in the middle of the day. This was essentially an entire night and day lost to a mishap that the airline didn’t even notify us of when we landed. Pretty frustrating."
Pros: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Waited on the plane for a while before takeoff"
Pros: "Great entertainment, good seat comfort (even in economy seat), good food and friendly service."
Pros: "The crew are very friendly and in general and the flight was very nice"
Cons: "Need to have a bigger seats"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good food and in flight entertainment"
Cons: "None"
Cons: "Options for vegetarians were not really good."
Pros: "The hot stewardess. She not only was gorgeous she smelled fantastic. What a treat to look at! Hire more beautiful women. Fire the fat ones."
Cons: "No where to stash my legs. Why bother to have feet, knees and legs while flying. While flying economy class, airlines should require amputation of legs at the hip. You should just do it because at the end of a long flight your legs will fall off anyhow. They will be rotten and full of ganggreene from no blood flow."
Pros: "Route"
Cons: "crew was so helpful"
Pros: "Everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful. They fed us and gave us blankets and pillows and slippers. They were lots of movie and tv choices. It was a very pleasant experience."
Pros: "Turkish Airlins is so wonderful, and I really appreciate being treated like a human being at IST (unlike Schipol, De Gaulle, other airports to connect at around Europe)."
Pros: "Service, food, staff—all excellent!"
Cons: "The cabins on both flights were too warm."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth. Staff friendly. Great selection of movies."
Cons: "Dinner was really poor experience. However I guess it is a matter of taste (pun intended)."
Pros: "Food was good but needs bigger portion."
Cons: "Not many choice for drinks, some fly attendance need to know smiling is good ."
Pros: "food was good"
Cons: "wifi was announced but did not work"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Comfort, service, food"
Pros: "Pleasant, very standard flight, arrived safely."
Cons: "Flight time left origin very very late at night, would suggest to leave earlier in the day"
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Seats too narrow and no leg room."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Crew were rude and everything we asked for was an issue like we didn't exist not sure if they had a problem because we had a baby with us"
Pros: "Attentive crew, great food including perfect attention to our pre-arrangement for vegan meals. Good entertainment selection."
Cons: "No wifi at Istanbul airport."
Pros: "Everything was very good"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Very professional. Also the transfer in Istanbul was very easy."
Cons: "I felt cramped in my seat. the footrest, rather than helping, got in the way of extending my legs."
Pros: "The entertainment and accommodations were superb. I appreciate all the things they think of to make you comfortable. The seats were a bit hard but they reclined nicely."
Cons: "The first delay during my trip was due to an emergency but my layover was delayed again. I'm not sure if this is an outlier event or if this is a pattern."
Cons: "Internet"
Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating staff. Helped us with luggage. Also, the food was excellent and abundant."
Cons: "There was not enough milk while they know there is alot of kids"
Pros: "Food, service, comfort packs."
Cons: "Not much Very decent efficient operation Always room for improvement"
Pros: "I eventually arrived at the destination."
Cons: "Difficult to communicate with cabin crew due to lack of English. Flight was delayed by 1 hour. General atmosphere on plane was chaotic I think due to the small plane and length of flight as large numbers of people needed to use toilets."
Cons: "Worst wheel chair service"
Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"
Cons: "The crew skipped our aisle whilst delivering the toiletry bags, some announcements were made purely in Turkish without regard to English passengers. The boarding gate from Istanbul was opened much later than the advertised times."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Rich food and beverages menu. Rich and updated entertainment on board. Crew is polite and service is good."
Cons: "When boarding no air ventilation on board, so air is hot like sauna. After departure air condition is excellent."
Pros: "excellent food, service"
Pros: "I was nervous to fly Turkish Airlines; however, the crew was professional and the experience was very positive. I felt safe and well cared for."
Cons: "Istanbul connection could have been smoother. The process was not efficient or clear. It worked; and I navigated it, but it could be improved."
Cons: "not all the crew spoke English"
Pros: "The Air hostess are aware of what they are doing, they can manage extra requests from different people."
Cons: "The workers at the boarding they don't have good language to new people they think every one should know every thing about Turkish schedule and other information, It is a little bit strange to have no where to sit at Instambul Airport while having wheel chairs for sick people after bringing them at the waiting place where do you think they will be sitting."
Pros: "Loved the seating space"
Cons: "I was traveling with my sister and the lady's who gave us our boarding pass had trouble with our tickets and sat us separate."
Pros: "good selection of movies free drinks"
Cons: "food was not too good"
Cons: "Delayed a couple hours."
Pros: "Almost everything. Food ..."
Cons: "Was great overall."
Pros: "food is always great, even if my flight is two hours or less. seats are comfortable and I enjoy the leg space."

Travelling from Nigeria was a nightmare. Those thugs at the airport gave my husband and i hell because we had our boarding passes on our phone. We had to keep bribing and begging them to let us through. It is the worse travel experience I’ve ever ever had in my entire life. And I travel a lot

Dreamliner was comfortable and entertainment system good

Cons: "Friendlier crews"
Cons: "The only complaint I had was that it was very warm on the flight (and I usually get cold on flights), and in the seats we had there weren't fans above the seats. A few rows up they had fans, so apparently you have to pay extra for air... This wouldn't be a big deal on a short domestic flight, but for an international flight it was a long time to be uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Decent price for economy comfort seat, 4A."
Cons: "The flight was delayed about 80 minutes and they did not informed until when I got to the Airport. I could have stayed more at home instead of the terminal. They have also changed the boarding gate.."
Pros: "15 years ago I told myself not to fly Delta anymore. But these 2 flights Detroit to Amsterdam and back changed my mind. I enjoyed the flight very much and I'm looking forward to the next one."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic & therefore delayed take off a little Receiving luggage was slow -@ 35 minutes from landing to luggage claim, so actual arrival was considerably later for those meeting me"
Pros: "Comfortable seat, great crew."
Cons: "Flight delayed, no USB port and no entertainment"
Pros: "Crew helpful. Food good."
Cons: "Better range of movies please"
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seating with enough leg room."

Pros: "Seat was good"
Cons: "Depart on time (1 hour late), hostess put a laptop in the overhead, which fell out and hit me when the bin was opened"
Pros: "Entertainment was amazing"
Cons: "Seats a bit hard"
Cons: "Entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and the seat at economy comfort was comfortable at the “ok” level. It needs much mor3 to be super comfortable. The plug for the headphones was a mess! It was NOT possible to watch a movie and hear the sound too! I gave up! Not a great offering for the extra dollars..."
Cons: "So many things! Starting with the way assistance in the airport is offered to travellers with mobility issues! This is an important issue that needs to be revisited and changes for better service to be made!"
Pros: "I love the food"
Pros: "All good"
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."
Pros: "Short flight and being able to escape from drunk belligerent Passenger on previous flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "wasn't able to take the flight since I missed it"
Pros: "Flight crew very nice"
Cons: "Paid $70 for seat with more leg room and was the exit role to main entrance. No overhead space for carry on: broken food tray holder. People stepping on my feet. And gather in your space waiting for bathrooms. Window seat had no room for feet because of closed door"
Pros: "Snooth and efficiënt with a KLM service"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Food was excellent, service from staff was friendly, and entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Not a lot of shoulder room being in the middle seat. But it had adjustments options for a lot of other things which were good."
Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "I paid a top price for my ticket and expect the advertised amenities to work. Upgrade or replacement for entertainment system."
Pros: "Smooth boarding, clean seats/plane, nice small aircraft (2 rows x 2 seats each), surprisingly spacious (more legroom than expected - and I’m 6’2”)."
Cons: "About 1h30min delay without an explanation. All other planes in the terminal seemed to take off on time without a problem, without exception (aside from this flight, of course)."
Pros: "Very friendly crew going out of way to assist in making trip comfortable"
Cons: "Had travelled KLM to Amsterdam on my first flight 27 years ago and the aircrafts are stuck in that age! Lousy seats, poor quality bathrooms, lousy screens, prefer not to fly them"
Pros: "Short flight with good communication."
Cons: "Nil to complain."
Pros: "Crew were friendly. Flight was comforyable smooth and on time. Nice snack."
Pros: "The staff the facilities the food all ******. Will definetly look forward to choose both delta and KLM"
Pros: "The crew came to get me from the arrival gate to get to the departure gate since our plane was delayed. It helped to know that the airline was checking to make sure we made the flight."
Cons: "I did not get my luggage in Nairobi. The delayed flight that was the most likely reason it did not get to the connecting flight to Nairobi."
Pros: "Flight was lovely, crew were friendly and very helpful and food was delicious!! We travelled with assistance for mum and it was excellent and we were kept updated all through the flight."
Pros: "Service provided by the staff"
Cons: "The navigation of the entertainment system is not very friendly"
Pros: "The flight was very good, specially considering it was a daylight one. Staff was friendly and servicial. Tue food was above the industry's average."
Pros: "Good multi media access and content"
Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "Sears we're toooo small"
Pros: "The very dirty plane was cleaned at Dar-es-salaam and became less dirty. The pilot kept us updated periodically through the flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "The plane was very dirty when we landed in Dar-es-salaam. The plane did get cleaned a little bit in Dar-es-salaam however I was still missing a pillow and blanket which I had to actively seek out. Seating was not very comfortable as there was a box attached to the leg of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to keep my feet at an uncomfortable angle through the long flight. I did not enjoy the food."
Pros: "Jet airways flight till mumbai"
Cons: "Poor legspace in Klm flight till Amsterdam"
Cons: "The bags where damaged from the staff"
Pros: "quick boarding, responsive Airline stewardess, very polite."
Cons: "temperature control was not good, service was fine, seats were not comfortable. plane need to be cleaner."
Pros: "."
Pros: "It was a short flight so it was O.K."
Cons: "Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger."
Pros: "Very good flight, excellent service and good food."
Pros: "delayed"
Pros: "Food and drink service"
Cons: "Boarding pass facility"
Pros: "Nice, turbulent-free flight. Food was good, service with a smile. Leg space was OK because Boeing 777s are usually better at this."
Cons: "Flight left over an hour late because of a sensor glitch. It is concerning when a technical glitch happens. But, the flight was smooth."
Pros: "Except for my negative comment, a good flight."
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat, but due to the poor alignment of the seats with the actual windows, I actually sat next to a wall! Nol much to see out of a wall. If KLM are going to charge extra for a window seat, then they should make sure there is a window there! If the seat had actually had a window it would have been an excellent flight."
Cons: "Because of slow boarding process flight was delayed by 15 minutes. I had short connection in Amsterdam."
Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."
Pros: "Flight was quick, professional, friendly."
Pros: "There was no flight! So it's one thing that you have to cancel the flight because of fog; but rebooking us the next day on a flight through New York that doesn't exist, was way below the standard of care I would expect from any airline. Apparently, the NY to LAX flight that KLM booked us on, was only one leg of the flight to Sydney Australia; and according to some airline agreement, only Australian nationals are permitted to take that flight! Running around at JFK from terminal four, to terminal seven, to terminal eight, back to terminal four, to get a flight out, was a bit much considering how tired we were – not to mention hungry, since KLM neglected to provide the kosher meals we had requested with plenty of time – BOTH going to and returning from Europe."
Pros: "Easy no hassle check in and board."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing. Thank you!"
Pros: "Crew was OK"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable. There was no power outlet."
Pros: "First class, good food, quiet and comfortable"
Cons: "People traveling with "emotional support animals" should board LAST, not first"
Pros: "My legs were sandwiched behind the seat in front of me. I hate that kind of seat spacing."
Pros: "It was on time,!!!"
Pros: "The crew members were extremely helpful. It was a full flight and hard to find space for all the carry-on luggage, but an extremely helpful stewardess did a great job of finding space for my bag. She was attentive and friendly for the beverage service and really made me feel welcome."
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable. We were allowed to deplane down a staircase off the back of the plane. Very cool."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Crew was nice. Boarding and deplaning was quick. Flight was on time"
Cons: "WiFi was super slow"
Pros: "The crew were pleasant and attentive. The seat was moderately comfortable. The food was decent and two services on a 5 hour flight was nice."
Cons: "I’m getting so tired of flying American Internationally on old planes without modern norms. What international flight doesn’t have seat back entertainment or better cabin environment systems?!"
Cons: "Overall good business class trip."
Cons: "PHX airport baggage claim was a mess. I had to wait 40 min to pick up the luggages."
Cons: "The gate attendant was very hard to understand and so I couldn’t hear what she was saying."
Pros: "Coffee"
Cons: "Only snacks available at 5am"
Cons: "that my flight got cancelled and wasn't going out until Saturday and I would have been less than 24 hrs in Boston"
Pros: "Good pilot/ crew to passenger interection. Great movie and entertainment selections."
Cons: "Turbulence but airline / pilot can't control that."
Pros: "The crew were fine, not their fault for sure."
Cons: "5 hour delay. That about says it all. All due to late flight crew from weather elsewhere, having them being taken offline because of long hours, trying to find new people, having a jetway break. Having to sit on a plane in the terminal for more than an hour with no air and stifling heat, taken off the plane and back on. All for a non-stop flight from Boston to LA. Definitely not fun."
Pros: "Bos to Rome via jfk. Both flights easy in all ways. Grrat first class seat one first flight and quite good bus class on second. New Flagship Lounge a real plus."
Pros: "Early arrival, plane not crowded"
Cons: "Onboard wifi not working so no inflight entertainment"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Very cold."
Pros: "They let me sleep"
Cons: "Not enough food options"
Pros: "Everything!!"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Early and easy"
Cons: "Was perfect"
Pros: "Crew was nice and kept us updated."
Cons: "Flight arrived 20 minutes early and we still deboarded 20 minutes LATE. Wifi on flight is ten dollars instead of being free and they use plastic cups for the drinks which I am sure is not recycled."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Not a lot of snacks"
Pros: "Smooth flight, not too bumpy. Also flew on time and landed early. Free beer"
Cons: "No internet. No tv screens. Jet blue is still better."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "On time, kept informed."
Cons: "We sat in Charlotte on the runway and had to run to our connection. The airport seems too small for the amount of traffic. We usually try to avoid Charlotte, but it was the only way to use frequent flyer miles"
Cons: "Not having boarding passes for the entire trip and not checking luggage thru to Charlotte was a hassle."
Pros: "Friendly attendants, plenty of coffee. Great service."
Cons: "We left late and then got stuck on the tarmac for almost 45 minutes upon returning."
Pros: "The crew was really nice and caring"
Cons: "The music and entertainment collection was very limited"
Pros: "The flight to Washington was fine. It was the flight back that I have issues with."
Cons: "My issue with flying back American is that...I didn't. They boarded us on the plane, moved down the tarmac, and then checked to see that we had a brake problem. They took our plane out of service (which I get, I would want brakes before takeoff), but then they never updated us on our status, until I physically went to the counter to ask an hour later. This is when they informed me that the flight was cancelled and we were rebooked on the 9pm flight (Mind you, this is 12:30p and I have a 2 year old with me). Luckily, I was able to book JetBlue and get home earlier (8:00pm)"
Pros: "We had to wait in the airplane upon arrival in La Guardia NY because wheelchair was not ready."
Pros: "Professionalism and all time smile of the crew"
Cons: "That there is not TV in the plane"
Pros: "The flight was on time, so no issues with that."
Cons: "Checking-in at CDG was very inefficient, it took forever, even though it was automated. Having to put my own tags on my bag is not great, especially if they fall out. No personal screen for entertainment on a transatlantic flights? Really -it's 2017? Food was really bad - all packaged snacks."
Pros: "Everything great. Rate food and entertainment moderate because there was no dinner, which we did not require, and we went to sleep so didn't pay attention to entertainment."
Pros: "The flight crew was professional, friendly and competent. They served the dinner as early in the flight as possible."
Cons: "This was a plane with central screens along the aisle, and the airline chose to broadcast a sci-fi action movie with almost constant flashing blue light, and violent action scenes. This was first of all a movie that many people, including me, would never choose to watch, but since it was on the aisle screens there was no getting away from it. It was also unsuitable for children, even without sound. But mainly, I object to the showing of any film in that situation - only aisle screens available, and on a night flight where most of the passengers are trying to sleep. I was awakened several times by the flashing lights. Other things: one of the bathrooms was not very clean, and the plane felt like the usual cattlecar, with just 3 seats on each side of the aisle, which is unusual and unpleasant for a transatlantic flight."
Cons: "Seat 20f It was very uncomfortable and freezing My legs were sore after the journey. Besides until 30 seconds before actual boarding time the members didn't inform about the delay. Everybody had formed lines and we see people getting out only then."
Pros: "The boarding was fast, the flight was faster than expected too, crew was very efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Space between seats too small, breakfast not good, too far inside the plane... Not so happy of the company rules : whatever you want to change, it will cost you. I suppose it's the way to keep flights cheap, but it's not fair to pay if when you arrive first, you have to pay to change for another seat... One free luggage of 23 kg when you cross the Atlantic is not enough..."
Pros: "Good service from crew members"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2 hours"
Pros: "Good crew Lucky to get better seats!"
Cons: "Poor Selection of entertainment not enough screen"
Pros: "The crew were pleasant and friendly. They tried the best that they could given the circumstances."
Cons: "My flights were delayed so I missed my connection. I had to fly a red-eye from San Fran to Boston getting in at 6AM with meetings that started at 10AM...had to BUY a day-pass at the Admirals Club (I feel this could have been provided as it was mechanical issues that caused the delays). THEN my trip from Boston home were delayed so they switched me to another flight and then THAT one was delayed twice so I actually got home later than if I had taken the original flight! Overall the flights really sucked!!"
Cons: "American Airlines made me check my carry-on luggage, despite there being many open overhead compartments visible on the plane."
Pros: "Old school seat. No foot rest. Small plane to go coast to coast."
Cons: "UI on the entertainment system was horrible."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew are nice with the people"
Cons: "Too crowded not able to take my other luggage on board."
Pros: "There's nothing good about AA"
Cons: "One of the few things SouthWest, Alaska & United did was the proper queuing of people to get into the plane. AA is a free for all - those who follow regulations will fall behind. In this flight from Boston to LAX - I heard there were 80 Priority checking - are you kidding me. Group 1 does not help if I have 80 Priority seating and one family took 12 people in with one elderly. It's good to place Elderly and Military up front first - but to take the Whole entire family - that's not fair - you have 8 able bodies who should be in line with the rest of the crowd. Also who heard of 80 Priority check ins - normally, that's Group 1. Never flying AA unless I a desperate."
Pros: "Very nice crew. Full meal"
Pros: "the flight was on time coming and going"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Announcement was made that flight was delayed for at least two hours and that delay might be longer or might be cancelled. Desk staff specifically said they would not help rebook until the 2 hour delay had passed. I bought a ticket on Delta amd actually flew to London."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "The food on the flight was good and the wheelchair assistance was good too."

Cons: "Check in"
Cons: "Overall was excellent"
Pros: "Staff and leg room"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Otherwise great flight"
Cons: "Cabin crew seemed uninterested in passengers. Hot food was honestly disgusting and there were no snacks other than a sugary chocolate bar"
Pros: "Everything! Best airline ever."
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."
Pros: "The entertainment controls give many options which is nice to help pass the time."
Cons: "The attendants were not as helpful as I thought they should have been and actually were a bit unpleasant."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Comfortable. Great flight attendants"
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: "The flight got us there safely."
Cons: "The security area was crowded and loud with a man shouting instructions you could barely hear. No one was helpful. No one was there to answer questions. An extremely unpleasant experience."
Pros: "Courteous service"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "I liked the fact that the crew got out of he way when I went to the bathroom."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic, everyone ran to board and it wasn't clear who could board when, there was no wifi on the plane, the "screens in the headrest" were not functioning, and the ones that were were SO OLD that you could see the lines on the screen where you were supposed to touch, entertainment was terrible, and we sat on the runway for over three hours because "the left engine wasnt starting" only to discover two hours later that a latch was frozen which is why it didn't start, so they defrosted it and then we flew. WTF?!"
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: "Boarding was quick and efficient and the crew was friendly and very helpful. The one flight was on time, but the other can be excused because of a technical fault on the plain. Safety is priority #1 so although a 3 hour delay was not nice, i'd rather be safe than sorry!"
Cons: "The food was absolutely appalling on both flights... We received a cheese snack. It was an old sesame seed bun ,with a very thin, small slice of cheese which you could hardly taste on it. With that they placed cucumber, that does not add to the taste of the dish, but only makes the bread soggy. There is also a piece of lettuce on that is past its crunchy freshness it is supposed to have. The last ingredient is sun-dried tomato that was the only ray of light for a poor effort of a snack by BA. I can truly say that during the past year BA's in flight food service on local flights, are on a downward spiral and almost in the dumps."
Cons: "they have removed the eye mask and toothbrush from the long-haul night life kit. Also the new seat have different headrests, that don't bend"
Cons: "The first beverage service on the flight was 30 min before landing."
Pros: "Very smooth, easy to book special meal. Helpful attendants"
Cons: "It was all godd-only wished I had direct all the way"
