Cons: "Meal service was very disappointing. 16 hour flight with one meal at the beginning, one meal at end, and a small, rather unappetizing hot pocket like sandwich in between? And snack offerings were ice cream, potato chips, candy bars and a few apples (ran out of apples). Need more healthy options. There needs to be a more full meal/snack offering around the half way mark if you are going to keep people from grumbling."
Pros: "The food you serve is good! We also appreciated the little gray packs of toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, etc. that you shared. The staff is very professional, and we enjoyed our flight,. We enjoyed the "quiet room" in the airport."

Pros: "Very generous with drinks and water to prevent dehydration. Two very good meals. Professional and courteous crew. Some unoccupied seats allowed passengers to spread out."
Cons: "Plane was a little too warm."

The flight that you gave us, JQ7 from Melbourne did not exist. Therefore we had to stay in Melbourne for another 24 hours and find another new route and flights to return to Heathrow. All a strain and stress. Your service to us for the return journey useless. So far, I have not found that you have corrected any of your failings and therefore it could also happen again to others tomorrow, next week, or next month. The return journey was a total disaster.

Okay

Cons: "Flight departed 35 minutes late"
Cons: "Boarding was very confusing. There was an area where they were checking people's bags or something near the gate and you didn't know if you needed to stop at it or continue. They didn't collect garbage before landing. Not only did we have to take our bags off the plane, we had to carry our garbage (drink cups/food served) to the front of the plane to throw out."
Cons: "The cabin crew was racist! She asked me to move from a seat because she wanted another guy ( obviously from her country ) to take it! Rude and racist."
Pros: "He missed it due to having a 32 minute layover, which he ran all the way to board."
Cons: "he had no choice but to look at the closed door of his flight, and wait an additional 7 hours and they didn't even give him a voucher for food. I'm his mother, I'm currently visiting family in Scotland, so couldn't help him much. I'm pretty disgusting and disappointed by the whole experience."
Pros: "Sandwich was incredibly tasty (although not much filling)"

Cons: "Business class was pretty empty but again I was not allowed to change my seat selection online. Pathetic check-in."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours. Arriving at Incheon, discovered ground crew were unaware of our arrival to take this connecting flight. However, we were put up overnight in a hotel, which was nice."

Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"
Pros: "Airline staff good and professional"
Cons: "Nothing one can do, for a 6.2" guy, the metal bar that forms the shape for the pouch for magazines and such digs into knees, ESP if person in front adjusts seat back. Fold out table barely accommodates laptop."
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."
Pros: "Everything was good. The crew was very friendly and attentive. The plane was comfortable, with great entertainment on the personal screens. The food was delicious. Flight was on time and actually arrived early, but then we had to wait for a gate (not the airline's fault)."
Cons: "No complaints at all."
Pros: "Wide selection of entertainment, food was good."
Cons: "Boarding unorganized, but that may have been more of a passenger issue then KLM"
Pros: "Good and plenty of food available."
Cons: "No power to charge phones, laptops, etc and no WiFi available. For such a long trip (10 hours) below industry standard."
Pros: "I have no complaints about the air crew. They where pleasant and attentive. Plenty of free entertainment. The food was good."
Cons: "my only complaint is the USB ports didn't work on any of the chairs that me and my family where assigned to."
Pros: "Friendliest economy class service I've ever encountered."
Pros: "Flight crew on flight from Amsterdam to Cape Town were probably the most friendly and enthusiastic I've experienced and no, they were not all young. The plane was spotless throughout the flight. They were always coming around with water and juice and they genuinely seemed to care about all the passengers. The Flight back crew were just the opposite. More like the old lazy farts you get on the American carriers or BA or QF long haul. Whoo have been there for the long haul and should have stopped ages ago."
Cons: "The Entertainment images on the screens promoted Beauty and the Beast, Batman Lego movie but neither were on the system! Food quality was rubbish"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The space is no longer a respectful space. Paid 32 Euros for my seat, there was not enough space, the man beside me kept jabbing me on the ribs."
Pros: "We love the flight all the way"
Cons: "seats on Jet air flight are very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Newer plane. Dimming windows, upgraded bathroom. Flight crew very pleasant."

Pros: "Yeah Everything well organized"
Cons: "I believe so"
Pros: "The crew was perfect"
Cons: "No wi fi on the plane."
Pros: "The crew and the food were great!"
Cons: "The seats weren’t very comfortable. You could tell the plane was a little dated. There was no WiFi and nowhere to charge your devices."
Cons: "I may be wrong but these days, the staff curtsy and overall well coming approach is lacking! Just a smile and a few cheerful words can transform passengers’ mood greatly!! This becomes particularly important when one is traveling for > 9 hours back to back flights!! One can extra charge for it!!"
Pros: "n/a"
Cons: "The conditions were very cramped. The entertainment system was quite old and had very little selection. My entertainment system actually stopped working all together. I called for assistance from my seat a couple of times, but nobody came."
Pros: "n/a"
Cons: "The entertainment system was very old with minimum selection. My entertainment system actually stopped working. The seating area was very cramped. I called for service a couple of times from my seat, but nobody came."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They have a terrible communication problem, they never communicated why the flight was late, they never communicated what they were doing or what was happening. Bad customer service. Bad communication with the client. They told us when I asked several times that we would not lose our connection and that everything was fine and that was not the case. We lost the connection. No one told us anything. Another problem was that the girl in the boarding process removed the suitcases tickets from the boarding pass and did not want to return them, and held it without any cause. Without that tickets we can not claim the bags. The flight staff went looking for us. Pretty sad and disappointed by their service. I understand that they were causes outside the airline but must communicate to the client. They cannot remain silent and say nothing."
Cons: "Comfort plus seats need some work. Very thin padding on a hard seat. The leg rest needs to come up higher so you don’t slide down while semi reclined. Nice compromise between business and coach though."
Cons: "Boarding (by bus) was a total chaos. I had to stand for about 50 minutes, either on the crowded bus or, after climbing with great difficulty three flights of stairs to a high jet-bridge (I am 76), standing there forever with 200 persons waiting to get access to the plane. Totally unacceptable. They started the boarding process early (50 minutes before departure), but passengers were allowed to actually board the plane at the time it was supposed to take off."
Pros: "Crew memebers"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew was terrific."
Pros: "Amasing crew"
Pros: "Crew was attentive. Timings were spot on."
Cons: "Virtually no information at boarding which made everybody just make a huge line. Boarding they a bus, it was raining and we got wet."
Cons: "Departure time was almost 2 hours late and the communication of the cabin crew regarding this issue was poor. Almost an hour went by without an update."
Pros: "Incredible staff. Super polite"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and extremely helpful!"
Cons: "The food could have been better"
Cons: "boarding groups were not adhered to and those in a lower boarding group often boarded well after those in later boarding groups."
Pros: "Average crew. Average seat."
Cons: "They could have controlled screening babies better. They just let them scream....."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Seats! They were too small!"
Pros: "great food, entertainment and seat comfort"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Good food and crew"
Cons: "Plane was old and seats were super tiny. Even an average guy would be uncomfortable in it. Can’t sit in one spot for longer than 15 min without getting sore."
Cons: "Air conditioning too cold. Wasn't offered an evening meal. My luggage went missing and I'm still waiting for it to be delivered."
Pros: "It was only 2 hours"
Cons: "Small plane, no movies"
Cons: "Not much legroom."
Pros: "Flight crew, pilot,food and entertainment options were great"

Cons: "Cramped quarters"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, seated in the last row and non adjustable seating, so very little leg room. Dis-enbarkment was very slow."
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "We were 2h late"
Pros: "Food has improved a lot on business class. Meals are more creative."
Cons: "Water bottles not given out unless ou ask for it. Crew needs to better trained with how to handle business class..."
Cons: "Security services at Manchester airport...too long and not friendly at all"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and professional. The food very good"
Cons: "First the plane was delayed because of a technical issue that I think they should check before The plane was crowded and old."
Pros: "Boarding was on time"
Cons: "flight was delayed by 20 minutes Boarding got me through Sky priority quickly. Had to then wait in the boarding tunnel as the cabin was not ready. large queue Seats were exactly the same as economy so offered no added benefits apart from the meal on board parked in a distant area of the terminal and had to shuttle bus to 2E which meant a very tight transfer"
Pros: "We got to the desk to check in and there was one person being served in front of us. He finished with him, turned and left the area through the dooor. No one came to help us for 15 minutes. Then they came out to answer the phone and said we were 10 minutes past the cut off and we could not fly."
Cons: "Staff just walked away while we were in line, the rudeness and mean attitude, they blamed us for being too late after ignoring us and made us late, they didn't offer an alternative flight until we asked. Overall, horrible customer service. Never been treated so rudely by people in the airlines industry in my entire 42 years of flying!"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and always gave the feeling that they want the customers to feel comfortable and enjoy the flight. One of the crew members even offered me to move to an emergency exit seat (without me asking to move) because I am tall. Amazing!"
Pros: "Great hospitality. Champagne as apero, cognac as digestif. Excellent on board entertainment. Comfy pillow and blanket."
Cons: "Plane was canceled at the last minute with a transfer desk literally assaulted by 100s of people. Only 3 persons on the desk. No lane for sky priority. Queued for nearly two hours before some airport employee gave us instructions to travel by train without any other information or tickets etc. Had to buy my ticket. Couldn’t recuperate my suitcase. Had to wait for it the next day for three hours. Up to this hour I don’t know how I am going to be reimbursed (train and plane)."
Pros: "Plus seat was good. On board crew was nice."
Cons: "Another Air France company, with their motto: We Don't Care. Ground staff was rude, no good food onboard and have to pay for it. Entertainment is your device, but you can't download the app to use it."
Pros: "What’s not to like!"
Pros: "Nothing particular"
Cons: "Nothing particular"
Pros: "General air of professionalism is reassuring"
Cons: "Food, crew appear rushed"
Pros: "All of the crew were friendly and the flight was on time."
Cons: "No problems"
Pros: "Friendly people on board"
Cons: "Crew was not very responsive. It would take over 45 minutes for them to respond to a customer call. Plane landed and we were kept on runway for 1.15 hours and crew only checked in with us twice during that time. People were panicking regarding missing their connections"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "It was one problem after another during check in. And it was difficult to find help in English so I couldn't really tell what was going on. In the end I was tucking to get checked in because they were insisting I use a kiosk but I was telling them that the kiosk said to see an attendee. It was not efficient and I felt like a burden asking for help when there was nothing else I could do on my own."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Food could be a bit better. White bread is unhealthy."
Pros: "Punctuallity"
Cons: "Bording far away, got my cabin luggage and everyone elses into the cellar because ¨it didn´t fit in the plane¨. There was plenty of room, I had breakable stuff in my luggage, didn´t get the chance to choose. No entertainment AT ALL. Confort: no leg space at all. Not an AirFrance plane, subcontracted. Lousy food."
Pros: "movies were good, crew was great. Comfy seats. It was really as nice as an economy flight could be."
Cons: "delayed flight, hot overall plane, personal TV malfunctioned a lot"
Cons: "It was all good, only in comparison with Turkish airlines and etihad it is not at par."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1 hour 30 minutes. After over 24 hours of travel this was not appreciated. Also no lounge access at Toronto airport."

A short flight from City Airport. The whole experience was faultless. Every flight should be like this.

Aircraft AUS->LHR, food, service

Pros: "Friendly staff and smooth boarding process."
Cons: "British Airways charge you for water. However the flight attendant did her best and brought me a glass of water. It is the first time that water is not courtesy form an airline."
Pros: "Everything was impeccable"
Cons: "Nothing except the rude passagers. But that is out of the hands of the airline.."
Cons: "The outward flight was rerouted to a different airport, and the return flight was delayed by more than an hour. Not even a glass of water free of charge."
Cons: "You could have not cancelled my flight after rebooking a connection"
Pros: "Flashy new seats."
Cons: "Flight delayed"

Cons: "It was all very nice nothing to change"
Pros: "Food and service were great. Super Polite, well manered, overall, you can feel it's British Airways."
Cons: "No complains. Honest."
Cons: "Incoming flight delayed so late departure"
Pros: "More legroom than other aircraft, plentiful IFE (in-flight entertainment), and a USB charging point in the seat back near the video screen. Decent food and wine, great crew."
Cons: "We departed the terminal for takeoff but a passenger had a medical emergency requiring a return to the gate and off-loading along with finding the passenger’s baggage down below. Not the airline’s fault, of course, but maybe passengers should carefully consider their health before embarking on an 11.5 hour flight from one continent to another."
Pros: "We loved the safety video. The seats were comfortable"
Cons: "No complimentary sodas or water."
Pros: "service was good, food was good"
Cons: "seats were too cramped for such a long flight and I didn't have the resources to upgrade to the next level (not first class, "World Traveler Plus" I think). The seats were also uncomfortable / not padded enough - my tailbone and lower back were very unhappy by the end of the flight"
Cons: "outdated inflight entertainment system generally worn and old plane"
Pros: "Crew polite and accommodating. Food OK"
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hours on tarmac. Reason unclear. Seats uncomfortable and shabby. Entertainment system down for large part of trip. Window shade difficult to open. Plane needs upgrade."
Pros: "There was NO water in a 4+ hour flight unless you pay!!"
Cons: "Non of the three bottles I asked for on duty free were onboard It is apauling that food & drinks have to be bought in such a long flight including water!!!"
Pros: "Made it to Zurich"
Cons: "48 hrs and as far as I know the bag has not been put on a BA flight after missing my flight on Wednesday! Also, I asked for a cup of water, but I guess I had to buy water because I was basically ignored,"
Pros: "Service kind and efficient"
Cons: "Late"
Pros: "Quick n easy"
Cons: "No complimentary snack or even water."
Pros: "It was good traveling with American Airlines. Good service from Chicago to London."
Cons: "I did not like the service between British airways from London to Gothenburg, they charge you even for water. They did not offer free drinks like soda or water, they charged. Even though the flight was international."
Cons: "30 minute delay. No boarding announcements except for "final call - doors closing in 2 minutes""
Pros: "The safety video was a great. All was on time."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and staff was very attentive as well as respectful of us when I was sleeping"
Cons: "There was condensation leaking from the ceiling of the cabin. A crew member said this was normal, would have been nice to know this ahead of time to reassure me that for a first-time overseas flier that this is normal."
Cons: "Wheelchair was not provided at London and Phoenix locations."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and arrived to London late for our connecting flight to Venice, was rescheduled for another flight from another airport. Had to take the taxi to get there on time for our next flight."
Pros: "The plane was spacious and quite confortable. The crew was friendly and professional as per BA standards(you never disappointed me)."
Cons: "Food was quite poor and not quite as much as I wished. So far Turkish has the best food for me. Poor quality of movies."
Cons: "Had a horrible time reserving a seat ( willing to pay) because the confirmation number changed and I was not informed. Took several calls to BA, a trip to the airport and an act of god to finally mange it. Was very stressful."
Pros: "Did not like that I had to buy a coke. Like common really?"
Cons: "Not even a cup of coffee! WOW. they charge and nickle and dime you to death. I had to buy a seat to be guaranteed to sit next to my wife. the base price for the flight was reasonable but then they added extra charges that were almost 1/2 more. the baggage charge was high. If I have my choice would not fly BA again."
Pros: "No wait, easy to check in & get luggage"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I love to fly on BA. Along with KAL, it is my favorite."
Cons: "Only problem this time was that the video monitors in the Economy class on the entire right side (Seats I-J-K) went out early in the flight and could not be repaired."
Pros: "I require a wheelchair for getting around the airport. When I first checked in at LHR, they claimed to have no record of my wheelchair request and my seat change, despite my very clear notations of who and when these were made. They did have a record of my paying for one suitcase. The agent at LHR promised to make these corrections so I would not have the same problem when returning to London. Furthermore, to turn this into a humiliating situation, at the gate I was informed that the jetway was broken and they would have to find some other way to get me onboard the plane. I cannot believe that British Airways has no contingency plan for a situation like mine. After many discussions between BA reps and ground crewmen they decided to bring me down in a lift at Gate 34, though my plane was at Gate 32. I was then loaded onto the freight platform of one of those food delivery trucks and driven over to my plane. The truck backed into place and again I hoisted up to the plane. However the plane door was locked and we had to bang on it for them to finally open it. To my great embarrassment I helped down the aisle to my assigned seat, looking back at the curious looks and glares from all those passengers who had no explanation for the delay and humiliating scene. Officially the flight was listed at 28 minutes late, when in reality it was 40 minutes till we taxied away from the gate My return flight from Brussels was little better because the changes that were supposed to have been entered at LHR never were and so I had to go through this whole routine again costing me over one hour in delays. Fortunately I was able to board the flight through the jetway and did not have to be hoisted up again, and delivered like freight. How would you rate these flights. I had problems with every single British Airways flight!!"
Cons: "Airline did not honor Ticket, Gave incorrect information as the excuse and have not refunded me for ticket they did not allow me to fly on. they made us purchase new tickets and we were charged 2 times"
Cons: "I think it's a real shame that BA have gone budget and no longer offer complimentary food on their shorter haul flights. At least they're using M&S though."
Pros: "- The flight itself was adequate in all aspect for a short haul flight"
Cons: "- The security process ahead of boarding is poorly organized, staffed with some rude and unprofessional agents and with inconsistent requirement in between different passengers"
Pros: "I like that the staff was very kind, accommodating and professional."
Pros: "Good entertainment options, crew was nice, ride was smooth."
Cons: "I had a very tight layover and it took forever to get off of the plane, I nearly missed my next flight - it would be nice if short layover passengers got de-boarding priority."
Cons: "You had cargo on the plane we were supposed to board that leaked and contaminated the plane's controls. 2 hour delay. The replacement plane was beat up, old, and quite shaky."
Cons: "Due to US State Dept travel alert for US Citizen to Europe until Sept 1, I had to postpone the flight. Delta waived the $300 cancelation fee due to the terrorism alert to rebook two other ticket I had purchased. BA said they would but I can not receive confirmation of this until I rebook in the fall. Dr. David Miller Dmiller@Illinois.edu"
Pros: "Finally an airline whose pilot keeps passengers informed of reasons for delays with frequent updates."
Cons: "You are now charging for water? Really?"
Pros: "Pilot pulled off the runway as he thought there was a problem. Determined there was no problem having kept us in an overheated plane for over90 minutes"
Pros: "crew was great, entertainment was also great and service was solid."
Cons: "seats, while roomy, were a bit hard"
Pros: "food and video entertainment"
Cons: "mysterious baggage problem that was not adequately explained by Captain. Staff were choatic in supposedly checking bags to passengers, but only in an erratic fashion. As a result flight was delayed by 2 hours."
Pros: "The crew/flight attendants were great and provided outstanding service (Gordon). The food was great too."
Cons: "It was very hot on the plane most of the flight which was rather uncomfortable."
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours and no screen on the plane - a long way to catch up with Singapore airlines"
Cons: "This was a connecting flight for us and was delayed causing us to miss our flight home from London to Los Angeles. There were no flights back to Los Angeles until the following morning (18 hours later). We had to stay in a hotel near the airport in the meantime. My boyfriend and I were forced to miss work an additional day causing stress and inconvenience to our lives."

Easy entry into Canada

The on board crew was awesome, weather delayed flight, missed connecting flight, landed at a diff airport. No sign of baggage. Anywhere.

Need more seat sanitizing wipes like United gives out when you enter the plane.

I loved the snacks, the attention and kindness from the flight crew and the fact that during the flight there wasn't much turbulence. Also we arrived earlier.

About an hour late, sat on runway waiting for fuel long time. Then there was no ground crew to get us in the air, had to wait on them.

Pros: "We ask for help with a 80 year old woman that needed assistance signed up for help o get her from one terminal to her next carnet flight no one accepted her."
Cons: "Only saw what was supposed to have happened but didn’t no help from the air line period."
Pros: "empty plane awesome"
Pros: "Crew was great, pilot was amazing through the rough turbulence. Thank you!"
Cons: "Either less stingybwith Basic Economy or take one less chance to repeat that it is basic."
Pros: "Crew was awesome!"
Cons: "it was great!"
Pros: "Crew was great & flight was quiet."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Had abnormally long delays today!! Added 4.5 hours to my flight today"
Cons: "The plane was very old. It had cigarette ash tray in the armrests and bathrooms. It also only had three screens to watch movies. The headphone jack did not work properly and you could not hear the movie well. There were no screens in the chairs in front."
Cons: "This is my second time bad experience with ticketing desk crew. The lady (Her name is Maria) at issuing boarding passes was real rude. First of all she doesn’t know how to enter India OCI (Overseas Citizen of India) information. She was keep saying I do not have a visa to go to India. Which I do not"
Cons: "The female staff at the desk where the luggage is dropped and boarding passes are issued was very rude. A little smile makes a difference vs being rude to customers. Apparently she needed to know that she is getting paid because customers like us choose to fly AA or BA"
Cons: "I would blame this on myself but had a second incident with CheapoAir. The date was wrong and neither cheapoAir NOR AA would help me to fix it without extravagant fees. Ended up eating the ticket."
Pros: "Great crew! Smooth flight! Landed almost half an hour early!"
Cons: "It was an older plane but it flew fine"
Pros: "Crew was polite, accommodating and pleasant"
Cons: "Seats too close together, too narrow, and without individual screens. Seats did not recline enough"
Cons: "No in-seat entertainment"
Pros: "Easy boarding crew were friendly food was hot"
Cons: "Seating was a pain to try and get 2 seats together even though I booked it months in advance very noisy rude people couldn't sleep on a supposed overnight am exhausted"
Cons: "Flight to and from AL on American Airlines were both canceled - I was switched to Delta on the ‘to’ trip and stuck in AL another night on ‘home’ trip"
Pros: "Everything. Crew. Comfort. Everything."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "The 24hr layover in Miami"
Pros: "Nice staff!"
Cons: "A bit bumpy!"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Plane malfunction resulted in delay, and missed connection. Rebooked connection flight was canceled. Now in day 2 of eaitingto get home."
Cons: "Well because of some dumb delay we missed our connection allowing us to be given new tickets for two more connecting flights. Which is absurd."
Pros: "The flight was a quick 39 minutes from Chicago, the staff was friendly. Good flight."
Cons: "It's snowing!"
Pros: "Smooth direct flight to BCN, good captain & flight crew. Comfortable seats complete with usb charger port; excellent entertainment choices on personal screen. Tasty dinner & snacks."
Cons: "Domestic flights with American are atrocious. The plans cram too many people into such a small space. Leg room is non-existent."
Cons: "Nickel and diming people for every little thing. I didn't mean to select a paid seat upon making my reservation on-line, and I couldn't get it to come off. Had to pay anyway."
Pros: "The staff were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "When I called the emergency number, I was put on hold and charge by my wireless carrier for international call and no one answered the call."
Cons: "I called your customer service department which I believe is in India or Pakistan three times to ask them to help with an alternative flight and each time I got different information, when I asked to speak to a supervisor I was told by the punk on the end of the phone that that wouldn't be possible. I asked for his name and employee number and he told me his name was Michael, difficult to believe when he sounded Indian"
Cons: "Our flight out of Montgomery, AL was cancelled TWICE! We never made it to Charlotte to take this flight. AA was difficult to deal with in rebooking. My family ended up missing several events surrounding my niece's wedding and the individuals with whom I spoke didn't even seem to care."
Pros: "Flight was on time and prompt."
Cons: "Stayed on the run way for a bit"
Pros: "Boarded on time."
Cons: "Left 25 minutes late. when I asked the flight attendant to let me move further to the front so I can leave the plane quick and not miss my connection I was told that there were no other seats. I looked and YES there was at least 5 other seats in rows much closer than mine! Also upon arrival we did not get off the plane for 15 minutes . My connection was boarding already. I had to go from gate E 6 to gate B14 in a flash at the age of 66 I barely made it out of breath and they were about to close the doors! I was not a happy camper when I was told in the flight 5406 that I had plenty of time!!! not to worry!!!"
Cons: "They were not honest with the information given by stewardesses"
Pros: "On time and no lost bags"
Cons: "Tiny overhead bin"
Pros: "Since chek-in gate number changed two times. Outdated airplane especially for international flight. In flight meal could be better. Compare with other US airlines AA needs serious improvements in customer service."
Pros: "Courteous and polite"
Cons: "Nothing was a great flight"
Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "My tickets ultimately were booked through Kayak/webjet. I will never book through webjet again. You can't directly speak with an agent. They never sent me my e-tickets. I couldn't download my tickets prior to arriving at the airport. It was super confusing because I couldn't figure out whether I was flying on British Airways or American Airlines. I didn't know what terminal to go to. I finally checked in with American even after they told me to go to British Airways. Next, American said that my booking was messed up such that they couldn't check my bag through. So at Chicago I had to exit the Secure area, pick up my bag from baggage check, check it back in and go back through security. I still didn't have my ticket for the chicago-barcelona leg of the trip. At American, they told be I had to exit the airport again to go to British Airways for the Chicago- Barcelona leg of the trip. Luckily, i asked another agent and she confirmed my flight was though American. It was the most confusing flight experience, I have ever had."
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: "Entertainment."
Cons: "We waited in the plane at the gate for over two and a half hours after scheduled departure time. I understand that things happen and illnesses are sometimes sprung upon us but that wasn't the issue. The issue was that there was not a backup in place for an instance like this. I understand the time of night was the main issue but planes are flying 24/7."
Pros: "The single flight attendant was very friendly and down to earth, and was keen to share her experience with us."
Cons: "De Havilland Dash-8's can be a bit noisy, and they seem to be the only planes they fly into Hilton Head. However, that isn't to say you're unable to get sleep on them, because my partner and I both slept the entire flight- the vibrations are only slightly disconcerting. Departure was about 15 minutes late out of Charlotte."
Cons: "Bhm flight delayed . Threw everything else off"
Pros: "Meals, space, comfort"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Flight to Dallas was 3 hours late and that was the good news"
Cons: "Flight returning from Dallas to Birminham was absurd. Multiple delays before announcing cancellation. Other flights over booked. Took 24 hours to get back to Bham. Cheap motel. Food voucher was not enough to cover pizza."
Cons: "Delayed for 'weather' but weather was fine and missed my connection by 10 min and needed to sleep the entire night in airport"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight from Bham to Dallas was 3 hours late due to purported "maintenance", causing us to miss our connecting flight to Jackson Hole, where we were to attend wedding festivities. Our bags did not make the flight either and were also stranded in Dallas, like us, but we were not allowed to retrieve them. The American Airlines hate people in Dallas were extremely rude and unhelpful, and could offer us neither a hotel room not an alternative way to get to our destination. Moreover, the "customer service representative" cancelled our remaining tickets, including our return flights without our instruction or permission. It was an altogether outraging experience and we will not be flying AA ever again."
