Airline reviews

The entertainment selection was great, boarding process was smooth. However, the staff were so rude, my tray table was broken so had drinks split on me. I had a child coughing on me and kicking me in her sleep. The person in front of me put his seat down so far that my knees were against the seat (I’m only 5’9). The person behind me used her tray table to sleep so I couldn’t put my seat back. She woke up for breakfast, by which point I wanted sleep so I put my seat back and she complained about it so I had to put the seat upright again!

Cons: "I discovered when I hit Dubai that despite having an eight an a half hour layover that I didn't qualify for the free hotel I thought I did qualify for as someone with an eight hour plus flight so that was a little disappointing have had it before so assumed it was on all flights but that ended up being a negative surprise..."

Very stressful and tiring. There was not even a proper accommodation for this very long wait between flights. This experience will be told to all my friends and trust me it will be a very bad, negative endorsement."

Pros: "The flight crew we're fine and helpful if you needed something."
Cons: "The TV for my seat would cut out when the person in front of me reclined. The charging plug also didn't work."

Even though I told Steward not to wake me for the meals but still I was woken up 3 times for two serving of meals."
Cons: "Significant delay in Dubai. Food vouchers handed out while change of plane which made it like feeding time at the zoo. Late boarding on new time. Food service was 6+ hours after the vouchers were handed out. Crew spent more time socializing with each other than servicing the passengers."
Pros: "Quality of service"

Pros: "Service was too notch. Economy Class was a bit tight for such a long flight. Still a great experience. Thank you."
Cons: "70 minutes waiting on tarmac for no obvious reason before 15 + hours flight is not nice, perfect weather, plane 4 hours before take off ready , but ATC allowed 14 small planes to over take us....Dubai airport big disappointment, not enough clean restrooms, overpriced ,not enough food courts ,only retail and duty free, boarding took double time than usual....for me no more Dubai,"
Pros: "The seats were good, more reclining than Etihad, Luftansa and United airlines and a good leg space, although I'm 5'4. Food was good and plentiful."

Cons: "Screen was black and white most of flight"

Pros: "The Captain spoke to us a few times and the crew were absolutely amazing. Best flight Ive ever been on."

I had bought a ticket with two checked bags but when I did the check in they made me pay for the second bag saying it wasn’t included in the ticket. Plus, I had asked for vegetarian food when buying the ticket and they didn’t gave me special food. Don’t know if it is eDreams fault or Turkish Airlines.

Pros: "Everything...the food was delicious, the staff was gracious and always went the extra mile."

Pros: "It was a smooth trip"
Cons: "Boarding a bus to be taken to the plane It’s probably not unusual in Turkey but that was a first for me In all fairness it was a high anxiety moment for me with all the unknowns I was facing but I appreciate Turkish Air nonetheless"
Pros: "plenty of food that was good quality, lots of entertainment options, usb to charge. flight attendants very nice and helpful. one of the best international flights in a while."

Pros: "Big plane, friendly staff, good food."
Cons: "Sometime, it gets a bit too cold."
Pros: "Price of ticket Clean bathrooms"
Cons: "I was sitting next to toddlers, who were crying and hyper. I think they should assign special section for parents with kids under 5. Felt sick after dinner with aubergine rice and mince meat.

Pros: "this particular plane had PLENTY of leg room, I could really stretch out and take a nap. Just depends which plane you fly on Turkish. Food is good for plane food."

Pros: "Landing!"
Cons: "A 12-hour flight maybe necessary for a visit but it still is uncomfortable."

Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
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"
Cons: "The tv sett wasn't working ."
Cons: "Crew was slow to pick up trays."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly and welcoming"
Pros: "Good food. I would say there is scope for improvement on wines"
Cons: "Employees didnt look or act very welcoming. Very little food."
Cons: "Lack of space for over 1.95m person, uncomfortable seats (seat can not be adjusted because the button was broken for the flight over 10hours!), old fashioned seats, no usb to charge any device."
Pros: "_ very delicious food - nice stuff, - good service - good plane - good selection of new movies,episodes and live TV - long trip to Egypt but with fun and enjoying it - gave chance to those people to entertain you while you are in long trip - one more time was very delicious meals ...like it so much Thanks guys."
Pros: "Food; power outlet."
Cons: "legroom."
Pros: "Great crew, pleasant fligt"
Cons: "The A/C in the cabin was not working properly and for the first 2 hours was not even working. I had a hard time breathing, I was sweating and felt like I was going to faint. Eventually it worked better, but was on and off during the flight. It was unacceptable to let the plane go with the A/C not working properly. They even tried to blame it on the engines, that they had to work in full to get it going. I've flown hundreds of times and this is the first time I encountered anything like that."
Pros: "Entertainment options are good. Flight timings and boarding was generally very good."
Cons: "The foot rest in economy class is really uncomfortable for people over 5'10'' in height as it means we have less legroom, even if it is folded up, and can be uncomfortable to press against. Food is too much the same across all Turkish Airlines flights. I took 6 flights with Turkish Airlines in 1 week and got cheese sandwiches in every flight!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The service is slow and bad. Very unaccomodating from the first person at the airline desk at the airport tonthe hosts on the plain."
Pros: "All was great as mentioned earlier."
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."
Cons: "I wanted to upgrade called Kayak that out me through to VAYAMA that then called Turkish airlines. Took hours in the phone (international call) they then told me I can't upgrade (payed upgrade) because the business is FULL, guess what??? Business was EMPTY"
Pros: "None"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by one hour"
Pros: "Wonderful service and amazing food."
Cons: "Beds weren't flat on business class. My feet were hanging all the trip."
Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew was brilliant"
Pros: "Helpful crew Good food"

Cons: "3 out of our 4 flights had some sort of delay."
Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Pros: "The problem was with the booking, cancelled flights- under stable- but nobody willing to make it right. Flights still screwed up"
Cons: "Give some customer service to your paying customers. Don't make a bad situation worse. Practice a can do attitude. Very disappointed in customer service. Not the flight itself."
Pros: "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: "Travel is good and comfortable"
Cons: "Travel from Frankfurt to London was quite late start . Delay in immigration check."
Pros: "coffee"
Cons: "boarding was chaotic"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Almost everything"
Cons: "The flight was late."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Late noisy too many children slow boarding"
Pros: "Breakfast food was fantastic. Staff was helpful, anticipatory, and thoughtfully accommodating."
Cons: "No access to usb power outlets."
Cons: "Lufthansa has a horrible website. I wanted to check in online but I had to no reservation or ticket number is provided so I had to go to my old reservations to find it. .Next I wanted to pay for my luggage online but there was no link given. It says you can do it cheaper on Lufthansa.com but I could not find where you can actually do that. All in all spend 30 minutes with no result. Had to pay at check in $44 instead of $27. And it was just one of many other problems and inconveniences with their website."
Pros: "Flight on time and excellent service."
Cons: "Food was not great."
Cons: "Quite satisfiedoverall"
Pros: "food, entertainment and most of the crew was great"
Cons: "Early boarding and then got yelled at for showing up 3min after official boarding time on ticket. no air vents for each seat. massive heat in airplane while waiting for taxiing"
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Pros: "Excellent overall."
Pros: "Five stars good flhte !!!!!!!!"
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating. I was surprised that the food was as good as it was."
Cons: "The seats were very small. I am a woman in her late twenties under 5 feet tall and I had difficulty getting comfortable in the seats. The temperature was too hot the entire flight and I was unable to recline my seat back in order to sleep. Two bathrooms were out of commission the entire flight. This was the worst experience I've had on a red eye flight to Europe (I've traveled at least a dozen times between the US and Germany)"
Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Cons: "Terrible boarding. Finally we were almost 1 hour delay in departure"
Cons: "The food options you're supposed to get don't exist because they provide a limited number of the variety they have! By the time they get to your seat, they are already out of options. Sadly, the quality and service are going down too."
Pros: "Food and service were good"
Cons: "Flight was 30 minutes late to board and it was very crowded, so we ended up leaving an hour late (but made up most of the time)."
Cons: "1 person working the service desk. I had a question about our connecting flight from Frankfurt and I was told to call the 1-800 number. When I went to check my bag the woman was very rude and asked me "why do I think I can check two bags?" and questioned my Star Alliance premium silver status, demanding I show her my card (I have no card). My friend was flying with me and she was told that her carry on, mind you had flown to and within europe, was too big for the overhead storage and she had to pay 90 euros to check it and the woman held her boarding pass and wouldn't give it to her. we waited in line at the service desk for over 40 minutes so that she could pay. We arrived to the airport 2.5 hours early to eat and shop for souvenirs. We barely made it in time to get to our gate because of the inefficiencies of Lufthansa. 1 person working a service desk for a large airport is unacceptable, especially when they are 8-10 waiting to scan your baggage and not helping out at all. I had a wonderful flight to Europe on Lufthansa and was absolutely appalled at the attitudes of the airport staff and their lack of customer service."
Cons: "Delay of over 40 minutes and very dysfunctional entertainment system. Poor plan for connecting flights. We had to run to catch up the connecting flight. Very unpleasant experience"
Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
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: "Efficiency and made sure our luggage made it on our connecting flight"
Cons: "All good no complaints"
Pros: "Appreciated pillow, blanket and headphones on each seat. Served edible dinner on a 10 pm flight."
Cons: "Movie selection was subpar."
Cons: "Vegetarian meal choice not offered"
Cons: "Entertainment center did not work. I paid for wifi and did not work and need my money back. The headphone jack for the tv did not work."
Pros: "Good plane"
Cons: "No entertainment on board of the aircraft"
Pros: "Great overall experience oafter some years of absence using other major carriers"
Cons: "All bathroom downstairs, crammed stairs long long waiting , no room to wait for your turn"
Cons: "That better seats are so much more expensive."
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Cons: "They had overbooked the flight and asked to reroute me. I asked if I would still be able to get to my destination at the same time and to make sure I would have a window seat. Everything from the moment I said yes was a terrible. They rebooked me twice on two different routes when I was in the air. Said a steward would meet me (never happened) instead I was running to catch flights on different airlines in two different airports. The entire situation was disgusting. The running was with all of my luggage. Because of the rebooking I was in the last row of 75 rows on a plane with an additional connection. Every flight had delays creating more chaos for the next flight. The only helpful airline in the bunch was Delta."
Pros: "Senator lounge in franfort was very comfortable, showers were good, french champagne, overall good food on the flight and service level very professional"
Cons: "If the flight was longer I would not have minded I enjoy long haul on lufthansa"
Pros: "Our flight from Frankfort to Munich was late. Luftansa sent a representative to our flight to make sure we and others from our flight got on to the flight to Charlotte. How awesome! Plane needs more leg room."
Cons: "I had a short transit time in Munich (40 minutes). Munich website promises that this is possible and that gates are close to each other and if the first flight is late, then someone will help you to your next flight. My first flight was about 10 mins late. Although assistance was provided to people connecting to some of the other flights, no-one helped me with my connection. I asked two ground staff and was just told to make my own way to the next gate, which was not close. It was in a different terminal! After literally running through two terminals, I did not make it to the gate in time and had to wait for the following flight which got me home over three hours late. Lufthansa did give me a five euro meal voucher though (which doesn't buy very much in an airport cafe)."
Pros: "Overall great experience!"
Pros: "The boarding was smooth. The movies are ok."
Cons: "The seats are terribly not comfortable. I've been in many long flights with other carriers but these by far are the less comfortable seats ever. I tried in April the premium economy and the business class with the same carrier but still I'm disappointed and it doesn't seem that it will get better."
Pros: "Nice seats and friendly staff"
Cons: "This was an evening flight and while we landed at Logan on time we had to sit on the tarmack for a full hour before we could get to our gate. After a cross-Atlantic flight this final hour on the tarmack was almost unbearable. On top of that, it was 8pm EST which felt like 2am for passengers from Europe. It was just a very long day of travel."
Pros: "Service in general."
Cons: "I paid to choose my seat during the flight. However; they didn't respect the seat I paid for and they gave a different one, and the seat that they gave me wasn't a seat for the one I wouldn't had paid for. That same situation happened two times. During the flight from Panamá to Franckfurt and Franckfurt to Rome. That's why I felt they Robbed me."
Pros: "Efficiency of the crew and steward staff"
Cons: "Food Entertainment - definition of the little screen is very poor, you should focus more on providing free programming to passengers Ipads and Notebooks"
Cons: "It needs bigger seats More comfortable for far flights"
Pros: "The plane stewardesses were actually really efficient (German style). Because of being on the waiting list to get on the plane I couldn't get a seat next to my partner so they did the biggest math exercise to put us together. Props to them"
Cons: "The flight overbooked (I still don't understand this concept, since is basically selling twice the same seat, right? Is that even legal?) Also the system was down, so no check-in online = the biggest line at the airport, it took me more than 1 hour to check-in and drop my luggage, all to get there and the ground force lady (the rudest person alive) tell me that I had no seat available, that she was going to put me on the waiting list... WHAT? I bought my ticket already, waiting list? Well, to say that I highly doubt that I'll book with Lufthansa again."
Cons: "It was long terrible 24 hr journey with a pregnant wife"
Pros: "Good infotainment"

Problems with the in-flight wi-fi (none) and the flight info (none). However, movies worked fine and the selection is exceptional.

Cons: "I called for a crew member 5 times and waited 25 minutes for anyone to help me with just some water. I had to get up and go to the very back of the plane to ask for some water. The plane was hot and no air to be found. This was all after we had to get back off the plane before takeoff. It was terrib"

Cons: "Flight was delayed, landing at vce took an additional 10 minutes due to no one at the jet way. Luggage service was very slow"
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: "Crew was excellent -kind nice and very attentive"
Cons: "Entertainment went out mid flight. Had to be reset off 30 mins but cam back up"
Pros: "Efficient crew"
Cons: "Long, slow line at check in. Not many new movies or tv shows"
Pros: "Restrooms clean, decent food and drink, nice cabin crew."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "kLM staff was great."
Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."
Pros: "The attendants took great care of us. Super smooth flight."
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: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Food and one bathroom out of service makes an awful flight"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Flew KLM 27 years ago and the airlines seem to be stuck in the same era. Food is poor quality... Have you recently checked the Gulf carriers."
Pros: "Boarding was quick, Flight on time....just a regular service and plane"
Cons: "Terminal 3 Manchester is not worth staying longer then necessary, loud music, crowded....old"
Cons: "After more than two hours of delay... Initially the flight takes off was at 8:35... Then 21:20... Then 21:50... Then 22:10. Finally we took off at 22:40... Refund our money klm..."
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: "My bagage broke"
Cons: "I paid extra fee for extra bagage which was tv and i paid insurance my tv broke and no one responces for it"
Cons: "KLM crews look unhappy with their work. Everything they do is a favor not duty."
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Pros: "Short-hop flight, fit for purpose."
Cons: "OLD plane without comfort or entertainment"
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "magazines very dog eared and some badly torn"
Pros: "I was upgraded to Buisness so, no complaints"
Cons: "No Marlboro light cigarettes on the duty free shopping cart"
Pros: "Staff superb. They even surprised us with an exit row and a gift for my partners birthday! Amazing. Samantha and Dennis also took time to come and personally wish him a happy birthday. A lovely touch. This airline runs like clockwork. They are just great. The sandwich and stoop waffle are nice too."
Cons: "There is a bus to the plane, so that takes a bit of extra time but they are very well organized."
Pros: "Quick (relatively) flight."
Cons: "Skinniest seat ever. Couldn't even lean back. I now have hunchback."
Pros: "Short layover connecting from US flight and luggage transferred ok to destination. Food option not great but at least they didn't charge for it unlike some other airlines. No entertainment but to be expected on such a short flight."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and professional. toilets were very clean adequate overhead space"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats in Economy Comfort. Legroom and recline were OK but the seats were extremely narrow. No evening meal and breakfast was minimal"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Airlines had no record of our pets flying with. Missed our flight even though we were there over 3 hours prior. Ruined the last day of vacation. Now we are waiting for the promised help in Amsterdam. No one is here. No one knows anything. Feel like crying"

Tha table was dirty. I had to ask a crew member to clean it up.

Chicago-OHare was mostly good, though the YSA agents were very loud and many of them very rude! American Airlines staff and crew were excellent. No complaints. The bag-check process was very easy and we had a very smooth arrival process. We were at the airport for about 45 minutes including rental car return, bag check, TSA, and arrival at our gate. Very happy!

The plane was gross. Everything seemed dirty and had black smudges all over it. The plane was older and areas where paint had chipped off (on arm rests or interior panels) was repainted poorly. I don’t expect aircraft to be pristine but I was kind of surprised this one was still in service. The rest of the flight was fine. The plane was just yuck. Thank god they gave us wet wipes when boarding.

I had my 2 year old and hate checked my stroller and when I got to Miami there was no crew to bring it up they told me so I had to carry a sleeping child and my carry on along with my making sure my 5 year old was with me. Then my stroller wasn’t even with my bags it was on a domestic arrivals. Horrible experience.

Once we got on the flight everything was fine. The first leg of our flight was delayed 3 times but American sent us emails allowing us to chose a new itinerary.

Cons: "I arrived on time to make my flight yet was denied the opportunity to board. Resulting in me being unable to do my lecture for UCLA and being late to my aunt’s wedding."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The flights were on time."
Cons: "It’s disappointing AA doesn’t recognize Veterans’s along with active duty during group 1 boarding. Some of us have served over 20 years and participated multiple wars. It would be a nice gesture."
Pros: "Flight time, availability on short notice"
Cons: "Delayed, no communication, delayed at boarding, sat at arrival with no gate."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "delayed almost 5 hours due to “air traffic,” flight had plenty of room and they did not offer any upgrades"
Cons: "Boarding seems to always take longer than necessary. Why not board passengers in the back of the plane after special status boards?"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "Even with the delay I had a good flight and the service on board was very good"
Cons: "Sat waiting for gate for 30 min"
Pros: "The flight itself was good however, the cancellation/rebooking process by the airline carrier was less than satisfactory."
Cons: "The airline carrier was not very accessible. I was on hold for a long period of time (during late night hours) for questions."
Cons: "The plane was ridiculously hot, also connecting to the entertainment via the app was terrible."
Pros: "yes thank you"
Cons: "all vary good"
Pros: "The plane was nice and clean...had just been renovated"
Cons: "I can’t believe therebwere no flights from MIA to RDU from 11:30 to 4:30 :(. (Original flight was a 3.5 hour layover and that was bad emough)...and then it was changed to this flight:("
Pros: "Phoenix to Santa Rosa 10 times better than Phoenix to San Francisco then driving the rest of the way."
Cons: "Luggage took a long time to collect in Santa Rosa."
Cons: "Didn’t like how old the plane was. Didn’t have any entertainment, and food was bad. Seats were not very comfortable and not much leg room."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient the flight left on time in spite of rain. Lots of air traffic departing JFK and we were delayed in the take off queue for an hour. The captain made up time and arrived Paris almost as scheduled. Food was very good for coach class and it was a hot meal."
Cons: "The coach seats even on this 6.5 hour flight were uncomfortable. The seat backs have no support. The aircraft was an older 767 and did not have entertainment screens on the seat backs. Thus there were no games or other interactive programs. It had the overhead monitors for movies. Hopefully they will modify that plane soon."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. American said I was a no-show so I couldn't get rebooked, my trip insurance was refused,etc. My vacation was ruined. American wouldn't change status either. Funny, I ate right across from the gate 2 hours before flight on the same card. This airline should be banned from flying. I do see a lot of other people are not happy either."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "No overhead. No crew interaction getting on or off plane. First time in 55 years no crew at door as deplaned."
Pros: "The crew was great, the entertainment options were plentiful (if you bring your own earphones) and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "I'm only 5'7" and normal build, and the seats were uncomfortably narrow with no room to partially straighten even my short legs. The life vest box under each seat also doesn't leave much room for the personal item you're supposed to stow under there."
Pros: "The crew made a real effort to make everyone comfortable."
Pros: "Jams you up with connections in Charlotte."
Cons: "Always running to make connections."
Pros: "The staff was nice and the pilot tried his best to keep us informed."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 50 minutes. Then once on the plane we were stuck sitting on the plane for hours. Didn’t end up landing in ATL until 1:45am. And then had to wait another 15-20min for them to open the door and bring the ramp to get off the plane. Horrible and exhausting experience!"
Pros: "Either Frank needs a raise or the register personnel need additional training. It seemed every time the desk needed assistance, they were hollering for Frank. May be nice to have an ear set for personnel so they aren’t hollering amidst the chaos. Honestly, I sat at Gate E16 for almost 2 hours and genuinely want to say, “Great job!” to Frank. He kept a level head through the madness and maintained his professionalism all the while. Thank you for your hard work, Frank. We need more like you."
Pros: "I like that American Airlines did not charge for my carry-on. It was a short flight but we also received a snack and a drink for free. That was nice. I will definitely consider American airline before others when I plan my next trip."
Pros: "The flight left on time - I do appreciate that."
Cons: "We were forced to check our Uppababy Vista stroller at EWR departures that we hoped to check at the gate. Needless to say this made it difficult to get our toddler through security. At baggage claim only half our stroller was there - they had disconnected the seat from the wheels. Luckily we spotted what looked like a similar frame to ours at the gate when we landed. It then took another forty minutes for the baggage claim office person to go through security, to the arrival gate and back to baggage claim."
Pros: "The plane was cleaned, the movie was good and the food was good with lower price. It was a no problem flight and on time."
Pros: "mas de media hora en la pista y 15 minutos mas para desembarcar"
Pros: "short"
Cons: "second security check at gate where they wouldn't allow me to bring water even though I was sick and bought it after 1st security also threw away my lotion that had gotten through first security"
Pros: "Finally taking off"
Cons: "Being stuck on the runway"
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "It was 3 hours delayed and we ended up with an aircraft that was in the hanger. The economy seats were really tight, more suitable for a 2-3 hour domestic flight, not for a transoceanic 7 hour flight. I paid $81 for my seat since AA did not let me choose my seat. $81 for a seat that was really uncomfortable and with very limited leg room. I felt ripped off. There were common screens as entertainment instead of individual ones, very obsolete. This will be the last AA flight I will take."
Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Nothing great"
Cons: "It was delayed because of late or no show flight attendants. Thankfully two women who just got done offered to do the flight, so our flight wasn't cancelled."
Pros: "There was an air traffic back-up for a few minutes, and instead of just letting us sit there wondering what was going on, the pilot gave us periodic updates on what was happening, which made the process much easier. Also, the flight attendants were friendly, which makes a big difference."
Pros: "I have traveled first class with other US airline, and in comparison, American First Class in this trip was just ok. Is like they work right on the below line on Customer Service for First Class passengers."
Cons: "No entertainment, food selection very limited."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, at not fault of the crew on board, however the flight attendants did very little to update the passengers on connecting flights and did not try to help in making the connecting flight aware that some passengers would be delayed. I missed my connection by MINUTES (I saw it still taxied at the gate) and they could not hold the plane for 5 passengers connecting. Awful service and procedures."
Pros: "Overall the flight was fine. There was plenty of room in the seats and leg room (economy). I'm 6'2" and never felt there wasn't enough leg room or hip room in the seat. There was good service throughout. There were good entertainment options. The food was very good. Arrived early. I checked to purchase this flight directly with AA but found it to be cheaper booking through Kayak choosing British Airlines. I will look here again to be sure."
Cons: "Beware of sitting on the aisle. Those drink carts can get you. This is true with any airline that uses drink carts. Also, I was seated in the aisle seat that went from four seats in the middle to three seats in the middle as the airplane progressed toward the back galley. I was in the last 4 seat across and was bumped constantly by people coming up from behind, particularly by one flight attendant. I will be sure not to choose that seat in the future."
Pros: "Rveything ok i noticed American keeps lights low for people rest unlike other airlines"
Cons: "Everything fine considering hours in plane also note passing out fooda all once jal toyko manila didnt like"
Pros: "The entire experience was great. All the employees were kind and courteous. Flight to Phoenix arrived early and return flight to Omaha was on time."
Cons: "There wasn't anything I didn't like."
Cons: "Delayed. Missed Connecting Flight."
Cons: "It's not the first time that I was forced to gate check my carry on luggage. They claim that the cabinet in the plan is full while actually there is plenty of spaces for multiple luggages to be there. The crew was rude and refuse to explain it in an acceptable way. When I asked why cant I carry it when there is enough space, she simply says because you just can't. Do you want to take the plan or not! This is unacceptable."
Pros: "Why because my flight was delayed did I get moved to the last boarding group???? I was group 2 on my original flight... I feel as though I should've kept that status. Subsequently... I was forced to check my roll on carry-on. I also was forced to wait at baggage claim in msp. I purposely traveled with carry-on items to avoid this issue! Not happy..."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Taking off and landing."
Cons: "Boarding was slow. Seating was cramped."
Pros: "Seats reclined, beverage service."
Cons: "Wish movie would have been a better movie, not animated."
Pros: "Volare con American"
Cons: "No snacks offered! No alcohol drinks offered!"
Pros: "Frankly there isn't much to say here. After 7 flights in 2 weeks there was only 1 flight with great staff that actually cared about the customers and looked like they enjoyed their job. The rest treated guests with indifference at best."
Cons: "Customer service is dreadful, the planes are so old they still have cigarette lighter charges in first (but of course no adapters), no food/snacks of any significance, and they seemingly cancel flights at a whim with basically no staff to help re-book the lines of guests that have been disrupted. I pity those who loose luggage AA baggage services are flooded with lost baggage they just don't care any more. Seriously its embarrassing how little they care about customer service."
