Pros: "I’ve flown Many airlines in the past but my experience with Turkish airlines was wonderful. The only bad thing was that there was a lot of turbulence. The staff were super helpful, every time you asked for something they provided quickly. The seats were spacious. Great flight entertainment tons of movies to choose from. Food was yummy. Will defenitly fly with Turkish air in the future."
Cons: "After bus arrived at steps kept on it 20 mins. 2 more buses arrived in this time. Still wait. Then let out all at once. Massive queues to board. Poeple not dressed for this. Poor babies crying Maybe 15 mins waiting in 2am cold on tarmac."
Cons: "I like everything"
Cons: "The priority for boarding. Disabled passengers should board first. In Istanbul they take your boarding card and hold it. There has to be a better system."
Pros: "Friendly staff good food. Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Might just be a cultural thing but the boarding was a clusterfuck. Not really any order compared to flying out. Everyone just kind of lined up without any regard to the boarding groups."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "You could be choose food... one of the dish was only pasta... what about the people who's allergic? I am... The business class crew was very stuck up! Totally looked down at people who wasn't in the business class... The Aircraft has no AC that you could adjust air blowing on you! It was incredibly hot the whole time !"
Pros: "Fine, short flight overall. Crew was good, airplane comfortable, and the boarding process was fine."
Cons: "I expected more substantial dinner; perhaps because the one in the Venice-Istanbul flight was. The latter flight got beef/pasta choice, whereas the former one a tuna-fish sandwich."
Cons: "The gate from Boston to Cairo in Istanbul is too far away. My plane left Boston one hour late so I had only about 50 mn to run from gate 200 to gate 712. Also in Boston the called all the family with children from business AND from economy to board first the we the Business we started to boarded after which was one hour after boarding time. That was REDICULOUS. Turkish Airline team was so slow and unprofessional unlike the team in Istanbul. But on the plane the service and food was excellent. Mervat Ali"
Pros: "Staff was nice and the food was good"
Cons: "We were 2 hours late taking off with no communications. The seats aren't strongly comfortable either"
Pros: "The food was delicious. I loved that there were blankets, pillows, and headphones for everyone and they were not at extra cost. We also received care bags with lip balm, socks, slippers and a night mask as well as a toothbrush and toothpaste. The flight did not seem like 12 hours. Thankfully."
Pros: "The plane was better then the usual"
Pros: "Usually a great trip."
Cons: "A series of about 9 rows of 3 seats each row, had errors in to the monitors that normally you can watch a movie, watch news, or listen to music. Approximately 27 people could not use these monitors affixed in the seat before you. These monitors (screens) control the reading lights, the signal for the stewardess. Flight 33 on 6/30/2017 had 12.3 hours of blankness and the complaints were numerous, but the crew were of no use. I wish this would have happened to business or first class. The crew were horrible."
Pros: "The tv because I got to watch a couple of movies"
Cons: "The crew did not know what they were doing. My grandmother needed a wheel chair and the lady who took her did not allow any of us to stay with her , mind you my grandmother can't speak English. The lady also told us that she didn't need the passport or her boarding pass ??? Because of that my grandmother almost got lost , we had to wait for her for an eternity. She got very scared and very upset for what you guys did . She is an old lady and it was one of her worst experiences of her life"
Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"
Pros: "Staff was extremely helpful and responsive. I like that plane is clean, and many plus, very good entertainment. I love that it is non-stop from SFO to Istanbul. Food was superb!"
Cons: "As usual check in and boarding is horrible with Turkish Airlines. I have used Lufthansa, British Airways, Air France, et had not trouble with them. Why is it so hard to improve this in Turkish Airlines. No charger for computer even during 13 hours flight?"
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "On time flight. Very good service."
Pros: "I used the prime lounge in Istanbul and when it was time to go, I was able to practically walk on the plane without any wait. The seats were comfy and didn't have a ton of legroom but it wasn't bad. The staff we're friendly and helpful. The in-flight entertainment had a pretty impressive selection and had one of the best-designed interfaces I've seen so far (and I've ridden a variety of airlines). Last and most important, the food was hands down the BEST I've had on a plane. Turkish is killing it, they're my new go-to airline!"
Cons: "I really can't complain about anything, even if I try! Maybe the touch screen sensitivity on the entertainment console seemed a little off, but that's just nitpicking"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful."
Cons: "The seats were extremely close together and hard to get in and out of your row."
Pros: "Traveling business class makes all the difference, as it should. Trolley service lets one see and choose a meal. Attendants were very nice and helpful. Also, the Turkish Air Lounge in Istanbul is incredible and almost worth a destination in its own right."
Pros: "The crew bumber was short fot the full flight. The food used to be better in THY."
Cons: "AC was not working while we were in the ground"
Pros: "Limitations to 20 kg when travelling"
Pros: "To small area for passengers after security before boarding"
Pros: "really great service"
Cons: "The plane wasn't very full and my wife and I had 3 seats each to lay down and sleep on the long transatlantic flight"
Pros: "That was the only problem, it was a long flight. Also had to store my carry on further back from my seat due to the crowd. Made exiting awkward."
Cons: "Leg space a nighrmare!! Was uncomfortable for all the 13 hrs of the flight. Terrible experience"
Pros: "It was a 12 or 13 hour flight and except for sitting too much we were never uncomfortable. The service level made me think we were back in the 80's. Hot towels, attentive service, tons of food and free drinks. There was actually one meal that we would have eaten even if it wasn't on a plane. They gave out full size blankets and pretty fluffy pillows. (I bring our own anymore, because you never know if you will get one on most airlines, and if you do they're usually useless). Their entertainment system was amazing. We caught up on all the recently released movies that we've wanted to see for FREE! If only Netflix had this quality of movie offerings. They had fresh flowers in the huge bathrooms. It's that type of attention to detail you just really don't see anymore."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing that could actually be changed."
Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"
Pros: "I had not had the possibility through the third party website to precise I woud like a vegetarian dish, but the staff could arrange it on the plane. The food was delicious."
Cons: "The contrast of the screen was bad, it was hard to see if the scene on the screen was a bit dark."
Pros: "Best long distance airline I have flown to date."
Pros: "We had a connecting flight in Instanbul, Turkey, and a representative met us at our arrival gate from Rome and walked us through security and to our connecting flight to LAX. I thought that was great because we would've been completely lost if we had to do it on our own. Security check in was thorough. We had to go through security screening AGAIN (already did it in Rome and had to throw away our waters purchased in the airport), and two different lines for passport check. My husband had to go through a third security line because he had a carry-on. Boarding was well organized with passengers lining up by their boarding letter - no crowding - and people sitting at the back of the plane boarded first (after 1st class). The flight itself was great. The food was delicious. The orange juice tasted freshly squeezed. They gave us a water bottle, lots of current and blockbuster movies to choose from. They provided pillows, blankets, and earphones at no extra charge. Would definitely fly again."
Cons: "The seats were a little tight. They woke us when it was time to eat. Not sure why they didn't just let us sleep, and then give us our food when we woke up. Not really a big deal since I wanted to stay awake on the flight home, but I may have wanted to sleep."
Cons: "Flight didn't start boarding until posted departure time and no announcement was made. the food was horrible and smelled horrible. Airplane exhaust was permeated the cabin making passengers nauseous,"
Pros: "The price, the service, the food"
Cons: "I wish there could be a little more leg room"
Pros: "It was a nice flight"
Pros: "Tv and food also attendants"

Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "There was no vegetarian food on the menu on the flight between IST-BOS. The stewardess told me I needed to request special vegetarian mean while checking in. This is the first time this has happened to me."

Pros: "I would like to have ore of a grace period to check baggage."
Pros: "Loved this crew!!!"
Cons: "Everything was perfect."
Pros: "Comfort+ seats are affordable and give me the leg room I need as a 6'3" adult."
Cons: "Seems like Delta provided free upgrades to families with small children in Comfort+. This impacts the flight comfort for us paying customers. Recommend readdressing this policy and not placing small crying children in Comfort+ for free."
Pros: "the crew was friendly and courteous"
Cons: "Boarding process was cumbersome. Look at the Southwest model."
Pros: "Crew was quick to help."
Cons: "long flight -- 2nd cup of coffee"
Cons: "Great flight"
Pros: "The pilot did an awesome job of welcoming travelers and keeping them updated on the flight status."
Cons: "I sat almost to the back and there was not enough lunch by the time the crew made it back there so I had to eat breakfast instead of lunch."
Cons: "Boarding was very slow and exiting the plane was also slower than normal. An overhead bin was locked and that delayed passengers"
Cons: "A Boeing 757 should not be used for a 6+ hour flight"
Pros: "The crew was a replacement for the original crew that probably was running late (i suspect because everyone was stuck in wonderful LA traffic that night), they made do with what they have and tried to get everyone boarded as fast as they can."
Cons: "On time departures, better boarding, crowded planes, better snacks, comfy seats, charging bagss???"
Cons: "Delays were unfortunate, but the gate area at LaGuardia was way too crammed, hardly any seats, and poorly organized"
Pros: "you were on time !!"
Cons: "space between seats !!!"
Cons: "Overall, a good short flight."
Cons: "Stop being LATE!!!!"
Pros: "Crew was great, comfortable and clean"
Cons: "One plane didn't have TV screens on the backs of the seats, which would have been nice for the 1 hr 45 min flight"
Cons: "If there could have been some sort of services to take travelers to their connecting flight, for cases of really short time window of course, it’d be extremely helpful."
Pros: "Everything is perfect"
Pros: "Good boarding process. Friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "Its a long, long flight so can't really complain too much. Overall, it was a good flight."
Cons: "Old plane, long delay, sketchy WiFi."
Cons: "I had a small window for my transfer and Delta gate agents, knowing I was on the way to the gate, closed the gate early now I'm stuck in Detroit for the night at low end economy hotel."

Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Cons: "the flight was delayed by about 90 minutes and the gate was changed two times."
Pros: "Good snacks"
Cons: "This was my worst EVER airline experience. It was delayed 27 hours and the snow was not the only problem. When we finally got on board a plane we sat on the runway for over two hours - then they FORGOT to load the luggage!!!"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Business class seats were short whdn lay flat. Metal footrest at the end made it uncomfortable to hang feet off the end. Little privacy"
Cons: "Very late .missed connection. Agents in Detroit were worthless to get us on different connection"
Pros: "Flight was fine. No real complaints other than a talkative neighbor when I wanted to sleep."
Cons: "Talkative neighbor when I wanted to sleep. Very narrow and cramped cabin."
Pros: "I had the opportunity to send my carry on to the final destination. The flight was overbooked and there was no place to put carry on on the top place."
Cons: "I did not have the chance to choose my seat. I traveled sandwiched by two overweighted guys. I was holding my arms and was literally compressed by the gentlemen. Horrible experience. If I had the chance to choose my seat I would pick the corridor, and had a little less embarrassment and sweating."
Pros: "Just the crew people they were amazing"
Cons: "No room plane very crowded I have broken leg and could not raise my leg. No entertainment"
Pros: "I love the snack choices and that entertainment was provided."
Cons: "1 hour flight delay"
Pros: "Nice service , but flight was delayed , but that's not Delta dakut as it was weather related"
Cons: "Nice sercixe and crew and generous with snacks and water"
Pros: "Free ear phones"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive and available."
Pros: "Got grounded for five hours stuck on the plane."
Pros: "It was my first time to fly Air France. They exceeded my exceptions. The service was great and they made sure we were very comfortable. I will definitely fly Air France again."
Pros: "It was as fast!!"
Cons: "Nothing was offered, my bag was checked at the door but no big deal"
Pros: "Both check in and gate agents were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The boarding process seems to have some hiccups...like everyone crowding the gate and the wrong people boarding at the different boarding times. This all began when airlines charged for baggage and carry on became the only way to travel without excess fees. There is not enough overhead storage for everyone to carry-on so let's go back to no fees for baggage. The boarding process will become smooth again."
Pros: "The Delta crew was super corteous to my friend and I even when we arrived to the airport a bit late. They were friendly and went the extra mile to get our bags on our plan and on their way to the US. They checked us in quickly and ensured that we would make our flight. Can't thank them enough"
Pros: "Crew aware of my children's nut allergy and chose not to serve"
Cons: "Coffee horrible"
Cons: "Everything that could have gone wrong with my flights, went wrong. On my way from LA to Raleigh (through Atlanta), I was affected by the weather conditions at Atlanta. I understand that the weather is beyond Delta's scope of control, but customer service is not. I had to wait in line at LAX for 8 hours to even get information on what had happened, and what solutions were available. The customer service call center was collapsed, and at the airport counters at one point there was ONLY ONE DELTA REPRESENTATIVE serving a line of more than 100 upset customers. This IS Delta's fault, and it is unacceptable. This definitely was under Delta's control, but in order to save a few dollars in overtime for emergency staff Delta was willing to let its customers make terribly long lines, miss their flights, their connections and consequently their commitments. It is disappointing to observe how Delta believes that a few dollars saved on extra staff and emergency measures can offset the irreparable long term damage to its business due to upset customers. My way back from Raleigh to Los Angeles was also a disaster. Without any type of explanation and nothing more than an email announcing the change, the nonstop flight I bought was replaced by a 1-stop flight with connection in Atlanta. This was NOT THE PRODUCT I PURCHASED. There is a reason I paid a premium for a nonstop flight, and Delta did not hesitate in providing me with a less valuable product without any explanation or refund. Delta prioritizes its operational metrics - an obsession to fill and overbook its capacity - over its customers' experience, one again under the foolish belief that short term savings in any way offset the long term damage of disappointed and alienated customers. I will NEVER FLY DELTA AGAIN. I will do whatever I can to transmit my experience to everyone I know. At a time where major airline carriers are in the spotlight due to abusive practices (i.e. the United passenger case), I still find hope in knowing that alternatives such as Southwest still put their customers first, over the ethereal benefits that a few-dollar savings in operational expenses can provide."
Cons: "Seat back entertainment was outdated and non functional. Drinks were served but not a pretzel or peanut to be seen unless you were in first class."
Pros: "Nice snacks for such a short trip...most airlines have abandoned this for short trips. Clean and spacious cabin"
Cons: "Freezing cold in the cabin"
Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "Unsmiling, miserable staff. Seats like concrete. Cheap and nasty snacks"
Pros: "staff was very good."
Cons: "The flight was bought through Virgin Australia and without much notice, the flight was switched to Delta. The seats were amply smaller, amentities were not good (blankets and pillows). Food was terrible and was not as promised when the purchase was made through Virgin. Seats were so bad that my back and butt hurt after a couple hours. I would rather pay a couple hundred dollars more to have a quality flight experience."
Pros: "Nice to have full-size jets serving GNV once again..."
Cons: "Boarding procedures"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Cons: "Multiple technical issues on each leg of the flight for both airlines. Took 1.5 hours to deboard the aircraft on final leg of journey"
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."
Cons: "Touch screens were not working well. Required multiple hard taps which disturbed the passenger in front."
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: "Seat was excellent. I like the blanket and more than anything real silverware...unfortunately for bad food"
Cons: "Food real bad, hope it will be better from Frankfurt"
Pros: "Staff tried hard to serve food"
Cons: "Very stinky person sitting in front of me and because there is no air jets to regulate had to breath 9 hours of stinky armpits Stayed 20 min on the plane or more waiting until gate would open."
Pros: "Great crew and on time."
Cons: "Seating a bit cramped"
Pros: "Boarding was automated gates was easy."
Cons: "Didn't get meal of my choice. The crew was very friendly and responsive. Overall very good experience."
Cons: "You cancelled my flight & I lost a whole day of mt trip!"
Pros: "Nice plane, efficient boarding and very attentive crew. There’s plenty of entertainment options and free win with dinner."
Cons: "Everything was great. No complaints."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Pros: "Didn’t like absolutely nothing"
Cons: "We had to walk from gate z all the way to gate B carrying all the bags which was painful, the plane was very tight and old that I had to put all my carry on bags in the floor. I personally had to help the crew members to pick up the food trays because they were very limited and no entertainment at all which was really boring."
Pros: "Worst food ever. Stewardess could not figure out where my seat was . Seemed unfamiliar with the plane."
Pros: "Went smoothly and without delays"
Cons: "We were 24 hours late for departure without warning. We only found it out at airport. Air attendant didn't take customer's complain seriously. When we asked if there were a choice for food. Answer was YES - to eat or not to eat."
Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Pros: "The special meals ordered were good. the staff was courteous. Bags arrived on time."
Cons: "Seats towards the rear of plane were too narrow. When the front passenger reclined their seats they were in your face. This is bad design. Also, at Frankfurt we had to wait over an hour for the plane to get de-iced. Why was this process not started early, as the departure time was known."
Pros: "Beautiful day to fly. Flight attendants were very nice! Great service!"
Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
Pros: "Restful 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: "The boarding process is very efficient."
Cons: "Lufthansa’s people are mostly good. But there are some obvious opportunities for people to be more friendly. Also, LH like many others continues to serve cold rolls and cold butter on international flights. KLM warms the rolls! It’s the one small touch that would make Lufthansa’s meal service so much nicer."
Pros: "Catering food and professional crew"
Cons: "Late boarding ,flight was delayed 25-30 minutes,turbulence over flight (slight)"
Cons: "The flight boarded late, and very slowly, and took off late as a consequence. Thus, landing late. The inflight entertainment is only accessible with aps that you need to download before you get on the plane, when, of course, you don't know you need them. A remarkably illogical process."
Pros: "Faster, newer planes."
Cons: "Flights were late and boarding was caios, no one had any clue what to do. Blankets were filthy. Entertainment had limited choice. Considering I took six flights in this month, I will let it slide that they ran out of New movies. Worst part was food. Obviously, there is no quality consideration when they decide menu. Check Emirates or other similar fare bracket airlines to understand the gravity of Lufthansa food problem. If one reason I had to choose to drop Lufthansa from my future consideration then that would be worst food and drinks. I would strongly recommend that they should assign people who need additional time to board at the back of the plane. It will help them to go back of the plane faster and avoid gridlock in the middle. Another advantage is it will help other passengers leave plane faster at the end of the ride. Boarding process will be come significantly faster by filling the plane from back to front by loading passanger with children and who needs time at the first loading area at the back of the plane. Thanks"
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Pros: "Good space in cabin compared to other airlines and excellent service by crew"
Cons: "Benefits for frequent flyers and senators have been eroded significantly . also it has been made much harder to achieve status. In the past, complimentary upgrades were done frequently. nowadays it doesn't happen anymore. For someone who is flying approximately 30 times per year with star alliance, this is dissatisfying. I also don't understand why my preferences from my profile are not used in the pre-allocation of my seat."
Pros: "1. I am gold status and I had to wait a lot of time in the line people without gold membership who came 30 minute after me finished checkin before me. 2. The plan didn't have any Entertainment system. 3. I didn't got my food as well."
Pros: "Everything! The food was nice, I liked the entertainment too!"
Cons: "That my fellow passenger took some of my limited space due to being obese:("
Pros: "The onboard staff worked throughout the trip taking care of the passengers."
Cons: "The plan was over 4 hours late leaving and we had to board an Airbus 380 with buses. There was never any clear explanation as to why the flight was delayed."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment part: movies are good, crew was pretty nice"
Cons: "I didnt like the boarding process bacause it wasnt in order, also airplane crew started feeding passangers in 3 hours!!! after we took off. I started thinking that it is not included in my ticket!"
Pros: "nothing very special but it was on time."
Cons: "It was ok"
Pros: "Everything about the service staff the plane amazing"
Cons: "The seats are even smaller than the ones on small planes; Almost impossible to move even though i'm not a big person by any means;"
Pros: "Larger than expected in room. Lots of movie options. Food was pretty good"
Cons: "Layover was short so they said to tell the crew and they would help. They did not. Missed my connecting flight due to their delay leaving Frankfurt and no assistance given."
Pros: "It departed and arrived on time. The boarding process was very efficient thanks to Frankfurt's automated ticked checking gates."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Good food and beverages"
Cons: "Headphones are terrible"
Pros: "Entertainment had great variety, flight progress software showed great detail of surroundings and progress. 4 bathrooms provided for our area allowed good availability. Hot towels, metal silverware nice, and not available on competing airlines. Overhead compartments were roomy."
Cons: "Legroom marginal and seat ahead reclines too far, takes away all usable space for reading, etc."
Pros: "Flying Lufthansa is a much more enjoyable experience than the US based airlines. The seating is alway going to be cramped but the crew is a lot nicer than any of the US based carriers. The flight reached right on time."
Cons: "Seating is cramped"
Pros: "Food was terrible"
Cons: "Toilets were not clean"
Pros: "Flight on time, overall good."
Cons: "Luggage did not arrive in San Francisco which believe the problem started at the Malta airport. I was booked in as a stand by according to staff at SFO. I had booked my flight in Jan. with a seat assignment confirmed so not sure why I was booked in as a stand by passenger. Bag arrived to my home the day after I arrived home. Overall, good flight."
Cons: "Staff seen to not like people of color black"
Pros: "Tutto bene solo voglio sapere come faccio x fare I miles"
Cons: "Come ti servono"
Pros: "Very nice"
Cons: "Bad food, surly crew, old plane nor properly cleaned, ancient entertainments system, cramped seating"
Pros: "The crew, flight, food was great. At OTP, they don't take your shoes off and I rang because I had a metallic zipper on my boots. That costed me an extremely nasty and abusive pat down. They also searched my handbag, taking my stuff out and asking about everything, including eyeglasses. I was so upset that I forgot to take my passport from the bin."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants. I really liked that there was water service constantly; flying can be so dehydrating. I wish that it was a breakfast service on our arrival to Sfo even though it was evening is the states; I felt that I missed breakfast."
Pros: "Not much maybe just the boarding"
Cons: "The staff needs to be retrained a lot like many police personal and subsequent Police departments. The first class is literally coach with a slightly nicer seat. They treat you like cattle at American Airlines. If you have another option take it."
Pros: "Super smooth flight, good seats"
Pros: "I felt safe add respected. They serve drinks and small snacks, no meals going to Hawaii, plan ahead."
Cons: "The airport at Phoenix had little seating. I was funny in the floor in case someone needed a seat. Otherwise, everything was good."
Pros: "Meal provided was excellent"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "nothing lousy flight"
Cons: "treat people with respect"
Cons: "Main meal was mediocre, other food better"
Cons: "Both female flight attendants were very rude and pushy, the male was the only pleasant person. Also the in flight entertainment didn’t work half the time."
Cons: "We landed early and had to wait 45 min on the runway."
Cons: "Boarding very slow in Medellin -always- Entertainment only in your phone now!"
Cons: "Delayed the flight because they sold 1/3 of the seats, not a priority for American operating at a loss."
Pros: "Honestly, nothing!!"
Cons: "Everything. This airline has disappointed me for the last time."
Cons: "Better communication about handicap persons. I called twice and notified two people about my mom and her wheelchair but no one tells the gate to put a ramp up to the regional jet on the tarmac. Three ring circus as usual ."
Pros: "The flight and cabin crews handled an equipment problem and consequent delay, and information about it, very well."
Pros: "First Class Food (Dinner was short rib) was better than most flights. Pilot was very friendly and personable with his in-flight communications."
Cons: "Departure was delayed due to late arrival of aircraft; boarding gate was changed at PHX from A21 to B27 where there is no Admirals Club."
Pros: "Wasn’t horrible."
Cons: "Would have been nice to be on time. Not packed so every single seat was filled. But it was as expected which is the best we can expect."
Pros: "The crew was great. The seat was adequate but NOT comfortable. The request/requirement for only the wheelie bags to be in the overhead and everything else to be under the seat was EXCELLENT. Thank you for organizing the amount of “stuff” people carry on to the plane."
Cons: "I needed a little back support pillow..."
Pros: "The only good thing on that plane was the crew. We where grounded in board for three hours because of a water leak in the kitchen... My seat had a hole were the ashtray used to be filled with garbage, the tray was filthy when I pulled it open, the overhead light didn't work"
Pros: "Every thing! Healthier food needed"
Pros: "Nice to see the airline boarded and took off on-time. Kudos to the airline for actually having a meal option for breakfast without dairy for folks like me that are lactose intolerant. Oats were delicious"
Cons: "Boarding group 6 was awkward. Crazy American Airlines lady kept yelling at the first two passangers to use blue lane to board, which we were already walking in, pointing to us and repeating herself in a rude manner that made us pause and question ourselves that we were in the right lane! So we got out of the lane only to have 5 passengers cut in front of us. Idiot lady misdirecting passengers. Poorly handled."

Cons: "The food. Same sandwich the last 4 years."

Pros: "Efficient and on time! Courteous and professional travel assistants. Nice job. Nice new planes too!"
Cons: "Traveling as family of 5 - booked tickets two months ahead and we did not sit together despite me selecting seats when I booked. They were cheap seats so I can’t complain too much but felt that could have been accomplished given the advance booking."
Cons: "Has to be the most narrows seats with the smallest amount of legroom of all carriers. Great price on the flight (comparatively speaking) but I will opt to pay more for a diffferent airline with better seats. Comparing economy to economy seating"
Pros: "Our pilot was great. Kept us informed, was pleasant and got us in early. I appreciated the extra information he provided regarding expected turbulance and arrival updates."
Cons: "There wasn't individual entertainment unless i used my own device."
Cons: "We had a snow storm I arrived at the counter 75 minutes early. The staff were rude and unhelpful. By the time I got assistance it was 9:01and my flight would leave at 10:00. They would not check my bags. I had to be rescheduled for another flight tonight at 7:00. I hope it goes better. I still have received NO confirmation for my flight tonight."
Cons: "Very inefficient that all bags had to be checked on the jet way and then picked up on the jet way. The picking up on the jet way turned into a cluster F."
Pros: "The onboard entertainment has definitely improved. Nice to see how organize is the boarding process when compare to other local airlines."
Cons: "I was seating in the front of the plane were the seating should be better. The seat reclined minimum. Also, had the had luck to travel next to an amazing mother who was traveling with two small kinds and a dog. Brave woman but nasty flight for me. Need to improve the meals on the international flights. Too mediocre."
Pros: "I found this flight to be very efficient and the crew very professional and friendly. After a previous 15 hour flight I was very tired and this flight was a welcome ending to my journey."
Cons: "My ticket was cancelled because of a misrepresentation made by an agent when I had to rebook the outgoing leg of this trip. I had to pay $670 for new ticket at the airport with no other options and very little help from the LatAm agents. I'll never book another ticket with this airline."
Pros: "Boarding process and flight crew were just fine - nothing excellent, just average. The plane was an older model, nothing special. We arrived 10 minutes early but then had to wait 20 minutes for a gate."
Cons: "They had no alcohol and no entertainment on a Transcontinental flight from IAD to LAX. Also once we landed we had to wait 20 for a gate assignment."
Pros: "Our experience was very smooth. We appreciate all the work that went into making this a pleasant experience for all of us."

Cons: "Entertainment is rather limited."
Cons: "I never experienced the flight because I wasn't given a seat. The airline oversold the flight and I never got to go. I missed my once in a lifetime experience because the airline is greedy at my (and other people's) expense. I missed out on a priceless experience. Not only that, the bag that I checked did not make it off the flight so I remained in DC while my bag went to Medellin. I had to purchase new toiletries and had to make arrangements to get back to the airport. As of now, I do not plan on choosing American Airline nor LATAM for my future flights."
Pros: "Schedules were always on time, the price was the best"
Cons: "Apparently Finnair leases a Hilly plane and crew for this flight right now, so it wasn't quite the same."

Cons: "Need better crew the lady serving the snacks looked moody."
Cons: "airbus A320 doesn't have power ports at seats...."
Pros: "Medical emergency response and support was excellent."
Cons: "No pre-boarding for infant. Straight legroom in 13D still had seat in front recline into my knees at 6'5". Extra legroom purchase did not provide any extra legroom. Need to know what seats provide extra legroom for 6'5" tall passengers."
Cons: "Almost did NOT make it home to Salisbury airport. 3 hr layover in Philadelphia. Tried to obtain seat assignment 1 1/2 hrs prior to departure and was only told it was too soon and they would call my name. 5 minutes prior to boarding, checked again and told by another airport helper that the flight was OVERBOOKED and now I was on STANDBY. Purchased tickets over a month and a half ago. No problems getting to Orlando but to return to this- UNACCEPTABLE. DO NOT OVERBOOK a flight!!!!!!!! People make plans, have to work the following day and face the chance of not making it home-POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!!!!! Thankfully 5 people did not show for the flight, should NOT gamble with that!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Everything was on time. Food and service were very good."
Cons: "My check-in bag was 5 pounds overweight and resulted in a charge of $200. I think this is outrageous."

Cons: "Old disgusting seats Entertainment service broken and screen didn't work"
Pros: "The entertainment selection was nice, and it was nice that we were served lunch."
Cons: "On my flight from Medellin to Miami, the stewardess did not offer my row a drink. Then when I asked for one, I was told I can only have water or juice, of which I wanted neither. The plane rides were both extremely hot and uncomfortable. I was sweating profusely on both flights."
Pros: "From getting called stupid by Linda B in the phl airport bc I used the first class check-in computers vs the regular ones, then she says "what you can't spell"? After I asked for her name, what a horrible overall experience from American airline s. Won't ever fly your airline again. I'll pay more money to avoid your company.."
