Cons: "Lack of room in seat especially with seat in front reclined."
Pros: "There was one stewardess that really made the trip feel less "restricted" in the way she would greet, talk, serve, and just being what I always experienced good international flight staff to be. I wish I was able to get her name so I can praise the airlines for hiring such a great staff like her."

Cons: "Seat was shockingly small, even for economy class. TV was poor quality."

Pros: "I liked the movies"
Cons: "Crew helping everyone be more courteous to people sleeping. Group of guys being loud in the back of the plane while I was trying to sleep"
Pros: "Fabulous flight, light on passengers, so excellent service given by the crew. Virgin goes the extra mile on service and little perks. 747-400 planes also very comfortable, compared to the Airbus 320,"
Cons: "Nothing. Trip both ways were outstanding."
Pros: "They didn't serve any refreshments or even water"
Pros: "I loved the food and the amount of it. There were so many movies and tv shows and music to choose from!"
Cons: "The seats weren’t comfortable enough for me to fall asleep."
Pros: "The flight felt so short, service was amazing, food was good. Great overall experience."
Pros: "We paid for ecomony x which gave us priority check in and boarding plus first meal. Very impressed, we had an exit row seat and the flight attendant who sat opposite us was extremely friendly."
Cons: "I wish the economy x seats weren’t located next to the toilets... it’s pretty bothersome with the noise, smells and light emitted"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and courteous"
Cons: "Poor drink selection. Food mediocre. I felt like I was in the living room of the Beverley Hillbillies. Loud people, dressed like slobs. No manners"
Cons: "Bed was incredibly uncomfortable in first class. It was like sleeping on the floor. People talking loudly in the bar late into the night, which made it even harder to sleep. Didn’t sleep a wink on this 10 hour flight."
Cons: "Everything incl customer service at the airport"
Pros: "Entertainment Meal service and quality"
Cons: "The plane seemed to be a little bit old, especially entertaining equipment"
Pros: "Everything was as or better than expected. Did not have high expectations, because price was so much less than other airlines. Crew was friendly. Was pleasantly surprised all was good. Was expecting extra fees, (from reading reviews) but had none. Virgin checked bags all the way through, even though tickets were unrelated (and my online checkin said I would have to recheck baggage for second flight)."
Cons: "Seats are small in economy. I was lucky it was not a full flight, so I had two seats. The entertainment system was a. It confusing to manage, but the choices were good. Food was ok; but not worse than would expect."
Cons: "Staff was not concerned about anything, vague and uncaring..this was my son flying across the Atlantic idiots!! One pissed mom!!!"
Cons: "10 hour delay in Brisbane was terrible"
Cons: "Flight was an hour and a half late boarding, sat on the tarmac for 45 minutes, and there was no offer of complimentary beverages. Very barebones level of service."
Pros: "Flight attendants were excellent!"
Cons: "No indication of where to go to get to connecting flight. Luckily we had 2 1/2 hours to find the flight."
Pros: "The onboard crew were lovely."
Cons: "Stood at check in for over 30 mins with no staff in sight. Boarding was a disaster. Staff was not prepared nor organized and the crowds were unbearable. Upgraded seats were laughable and not worth an extra $60. Food was mediocre. Entertainment would have been good but GE touchscreens are so old, they were difficult to work."
Cons: "Once In London, we were told by British Airways that was flying us to Nice that Delta had “lost” our infant electronic ticket - It took 1.5h to get new ticket reissued! We missed our connection and had to wait 3 more hours for the next flight - We were somewhat lucky as multiple flights were delayed/cancelled that day - I will avoid using Virgin Atlantic in the future as they need Delta and British operate their flights and this makes it prone to issues like that"
Pros: "The crew was excellent. Flight was quite comfortable. Nice attention to service"
Cons: "I would have appreciated another round of hot drinks."
Pros: "Seat is very comfortable"
Pros: "No one would update that the flight was delayed. They would not even communicate as to why delayed and would not put us in a different flight. Absolutely no customer service. Disappointed and would not fly jet airways again . I missed my conference lecture today as I was late."
Cons: "No communication, nor will they tell you why it's late . Nor will they move you to another flight even wen requested"
Cons: "During my flight from LAX to LHR I requested (pre-booked) a special meal (Asian Vegetarian). During the flight I was told there was no such request in their records and therefore I had to stay hungry for the entire duration of the flight. During my return flight from LHR to LAX the in flight entertainment system for my seat was not functional. I requested it to be reset several times and in spite of the hostess resetting it several times, it did not function. I had to stay without an entertainment system during the entire flight. This was my first time travel with Virgin Atlantic. I may never fly Virgin Atlantic again."
Cons: "Food was awful. Sorry. Breakfast was unrecognizable. Landed hungry."
Pros: "Good notification re a 30 Minute delay. Obtaining board passes was a breeze and love where I can save the passes to my wallet on my mobile device. Flight crews were helpful, cheerful and professional."
Cons: "With seats being so tight causing an issue when getting in and out of seats."
Pros: "Very comfortable and spacious seats, good air circulation and friendly crew."

Pros: "Everything was excellent. Food, service, attendant, on-time etc,"
Pros: "Major issue: No information in advance of problems associated with transfer at Heathrow that required going from Terminal 5 to Terminal 3-- requireing a lot of walking, stress, time and security checks."
Pros: "There was no food or entertainment, but for such a short flight that's fine"
Cons: "It's so confusing when they list Virgin and Delta interchangeably, when you're not exactly sure which you're going to get. And in my experience, there is a huge difference between the two, so I prefer to know exactly which airline will be servicing me. Just be more clear in listing on flight info. This was not a Virgin flight, it was a Delta one."
Pros: "The crew was very good with the passengers and attentive"
Cons: "The leg space is very tight, it was very hard to sit specially for longer flights it's not that comfortable"
Pros: "Very friendly and professional staff. Clean cabin."
Cons: "Not the most comfortable seats. Dinner not very tasty."
Pros: "Virgin included a lot of amenities on our trans-continental flight that I don't think US-based airlines offer to people traveling in coach. We received a "care package" that included eye masks, toothbrush, toothpaste, and socks. We also received blankets & pillows. Our 3-course dinner included complimentary wine, beer, or mixed drinks. Virgin also provided a large number of entertainment options. Highly recommend Virgin for long international flights."
Cons: "Seats & leg room did not seem any better than domestic flights in the US."
Cons: "They need to make more leg room in ALL planes"
Pros: "You know what you are getting with Delta"
Cons: "The economy seats were really tiny, this made the flight fairly uncomfortable"
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Very helpful flight crew."
Cons: "A little unexpectedly bumpy."
Pros: "The on board food was amazing, nothing like I’d ever had on a plane before. I was also pleased with the choices for entertainment."
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable in economy. I could not sleep and there were no air vents. Every time I tried to rest my head on the seat in front of me the screen would turn on and get super hot. I wish there was a cover or something you could turn the screen completely off."
Cons: "If my baggage arrived"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "We reserved exit row seats and when they changed the plane they gave our exit row seats to others."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Food was excellent"
Pros: "Overall was a good experience"

Pros: "Crew was great."

Cons: "more leg room is needed"
Cons: "Don't call it "food." the meals were terrible. Also stop creating so much single use plastic."
Pros: "The food and drinks on this Delta flight was much better than when I flew with them years ago. I was pleasantly surprised. Good entertainment too. Saw two movies I missed in the theaters..."
Cons: "The legroom was decent, but I couldn't get comfortable. Pillow or no pillow, the headrest just felt wrong."
Pros: "very helpful and pleasant crew. Warm wet towels are a nice touch. I like the water bottle for each passenger at the beginning of the trip."
Cons: "Slight problem at first with entertainement at my seat that did not work ,but a crew member restarted it and it worked fine after that."
Pros: "We left an overcoat on the plane after the long flight and did not realize our area until we were in the baggage claim area. The Delta agent in Paris was most helpful. He went above and beyond to retrieve our coat. Good job Delta!"
Pros: "Friendly service, smooth flight"
Cons: "Some seats were double booked, which was not realized until the plane was fully boarded, which caused very late departure, which almost caused us to miss our connection in Paris. Also the bathroom became a mess - slow to restock toilet paper, etc."
Cons: "Not much legroom."
Pros: "Food was okay. Everything else was great!"
Pros: "wonderfu crew... very helpul`"
Cons: "Did not serve the food we asked Limited choice of movies"
Cons: "The food was just ok."
Pros: "Food and service was amazing."
Pros: "The crew was awesome and helped out tremendously when anything was needed!"

Pros: "Good food. Great service"

Cons: "Seats not very comfortable-very close quartered"
Pros: "Counter agent found reservation but not ticket number(?). She was very helpful and nice but Delta reservation system was a total mess. Barely made boarding even though we arrived airport plenty of time before the flight."
Cons: "Counter agent."
Pros: "Left on time. Arrived on time. Seat was ok. Meal was ok. Crew was professional."
Cons: "Long wait at immigration in Paris (not Delta's fault)"
Cons: "Like everyone says - could use more leg room. Theres no way to stretch legs which is a problem on ling flights. Why not lift up the seats by a few inches? This would create more leg room underneath without changing the number of seats and doesnt impact the head room much."
Pros: "The flight got us from Anchorage to Atlanta on time."
Cons: "No A/C vent controls for each seat. No reading light for seats. No flight attendant call light buttons were accessible. NO WiFI or video entertainment. Coach plus seats were just like the rest of coach, just in front of them. Seats would not adequately recline. The plane was still PACKED."
Pros: "Good food (for economy), lots of little perks (like eye shades), and most importantly, excellent service from the flight attendants. One of my best transatlantic flights."
Pros: "At least the plane didn't return to the gate and we departed 7 hours late."
Cons: "All the delays and gate changes with no explanations and only informed via text message. The weather wasn't even that bad. Missed the connecting flight to Bucharest and part of vacation time."
Cons: "Compared to such airlines like Turkish or etihad, service and comfort was lacking behind."
Cons: "Aircraft was smelling bad! Hygiene is the key"
Pros: "Not the newest 777, but everything went well on this flight - food, comfort and service were all first rate in Delta's business class section."
Cons: "The salad was the only weak point in the dinner."
Cons: "First class seats were uncomfortable for a 6.5 hour overnight flight."
Pros: "Before we even boarded, the ticket agent happily found two seats together for my husband & I. The in-flight staff was particularly helpful. We had some medicine that needed to be refrigerated and they both provided a bag of ice for us to keep it in and checked back to replace the ice as it melted."
Pros: "Lots of great food n free new movies! Crew was polite and on top of their stuff :)"
Pros: "A woman who spoke no English or French was seated next to me last minute with a baby who cried the whole flight. The woman hit me several times, waking me up, while trying to get the baby to stop crying. Talk about a red eye"
Cons: "Would have appreciated a bit more help from the cabin crew"
Pros: "Good flight, comfortable"
Pros: "Very good selection of movies"
Cons: "I booked with Delta who doesnt give you limits of weight for the carryon...why since the flight was operated from Airfrance they gave me limits of weight of 12 kg??? one ticket one law pls again, the hostess in my row was very nice, even the steward who was working with her very snob...it's not his job"
Pros: "I liked the comfort of the plane and its entertainment !!"
Cons: "Hated the food! You used to be better."
Pros: "Same airplane but we had to get off and go thru customs. Kind of a maze to get back onto same plane. Better seat with extra leg room"
Cons: "The iPad didn’t work so I couldn’t watch any movies. The seat next to me was broken also so neither of us could have inflight info."
Cons: "My bag did not make my connection in Iceland and was not placed on a plane headed the same route on the same day over 3 hours later. It was delayed for over 24 hours and it took over 48 hours to receive my bag."
Cons: "Boarding was chaos"
Cons: "More food choices"
Cons: "Needed a little more space."
Pros: "Overall nice service"
Pros: "Very speedy embarkation process"
Cons: "The seats weren’t comfortable, no snacks were offered at all unless you paid for food, & we had to get off the plane in Iceland on the runway & walk to a bus that took us to the terminal."
Pros: "The quality of the aircraft, staff, service and food was excellent."
Pros: "I like we had more room. How’s that possible for a shorter flight?!?"
Cons: "Reduced legroom"
Cons: "Ended up with a long layover I couldn't change after hours on the phone with your people."
Cons: "No instruction on use of shared video. No headset. Music?"
Cons: "This airline is the actual worst. Never taking it again."
Pros: "It does the job of taking you on time to the place you are flying to. I had forgotten that you have to purchase food but I find that much better: a lot less waste that on airlines where it is provided."
Pros: "Roomier plane for a shorter flight."
Pros: "Icelandair has the most legit airline blankets of any airline, also they gave out individual water bottles on my longer flight, saving a lot of attend call time."
Cons: "The flight to Paris started boarding behind schedule, and the boarding felt rushed."
Pros: "No pillows or blankets in seats, had to get your own or ask."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Pros: "Planes are nice. USB charge ports and entertainment is awesome."
Cons: "Boarding process needs more organization. It was basically a free for all."
Pros: "The flight was pleasant."
Cons: "The baggage check was a problem. Self check is at Keflavik airport is required. After printing the self check tags all of the baggage drop point systems failed for about 30 minutes. After repeated re-boots the systems would work intermittently. Initial check in to the gate took about 90 minutes."
Pros: "They had great menu options. Good price on alcohol if you want to drink also a really superb selection of spirts to choose."
Cons: "Small aircraft should not put three people to a row."
Pros: "Everything you hear about Icelandair is true. The crew is polite and caring and the planes are clean and efficient. I will definetly use this airline again. The price was right, the in flight entertainment was on point, and the service was above what I expected."
Cons: "I'm not sure if this was just a fluke, but the plane was freezing for me! I Had an air vent next to my feet and not even extra socks and two blankets wrapped around my feet kept my toes from turning into little piggy icicles!"
Pros: "About the same as our first leg of our trip."
Pros: "Everything was great. Liked the pillow, blanket and everything offered."
Cons: "The only thing we didn't like was we felt like we were being starved into buying food. We would have bought food anyways but the lack of peanuts or crackers made us feel cheap."
Pros: "Flight crew very friendly and accomodating. On tome, excellent entertainment ."
Cons: "Only annoyance was non bridge boarding, needing to get bus to board"
Cons: "They did not call for rows so it was mass chaos especially when our gate line crossed with another boarding at the same time. They have a lot of flights leaving at the same time and it could be a much better boarding process."
Cons: "It was delayed"
Cons: "No food offered"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and quick. There was a lot of room on the plane."
Cons: "There was some confusion at the Iceland airport because there were two gates areas close together that provided a place to wait for a bus to take passengers to the plane. Our flight was delayed and there were no announcements until after it should have taken off. In the end, it was only delayed 50 minutes. There were people from another flight mixed in with our line and they nearly missed their own plane. It would have reduced stress to have more direction from the staff."
Cons: "No free snacks or food"
Pros: "sufficient room for legs (my height is 1,78)"
Cons: "An entertainement digital tablet is available on demand. Nevertheless, the proposed films and music aim almost exclusivment Icelandic public"
Cons: "This is the first and the last time that I fly to Europe with a budget airline. To save themselves a few bucks, they made the experience much less pleasant than it could have been. What they sold as food on the airplane was pathetic. And the prices for the awful food at the airport in Reykjavik were outrageous and they were not even posted, so until you went to pay you didn't know that those two pieces of stale bread with a thin slice of ham cost more than $12. Things like these leave one with a very bad aftertaste. Not worth it."
Cons: "No food and the movie selection"
Pros: "Uncomfortable plane."
Cons: "Non-smiling and unfriendly flight attendants in Business Class. A delayed bag had all my fiancés clothes. Bag was supposed to be delivered next day, but it may take 3 days. Icelandair staff are not making it a priority. Very long wait times on their customer service number too."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "The Reykjavik airport is simply too small for the number of flights they have. Most planes can't come to a gate, and there were nowhere near enough busses shuttling passengers to the planes. As a result, it took 90 minutes to board the plane, and an additional 70 minutes after boarding to get a runway to take off. We made up some time in the air so we were only an hour late, but it seemed avoidable if the airport would be more realistic about its capacity."
Cons: "It's fine if you miss your connection in Iceland to France because you can wait around for the next flight 8 hours later. If the original flight didn't have a delay of 1.5 hours things would have been smooth. Every flight from Icelandair was late and they don't give you an update as to why. The crew told some white lies to make us believe we wouldn't have a problem making our connection."
Cons: "I was delayed 9 hours due to a strike, including a 7 hour layover with no offer of compensation or assistance."
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Boarding in Reykjavik was nightmarish. There were no announcements at all and no organized seating process. We had to stand out in the cold wind waiting to board because they didn't board from the back. No hot water on the flight, so no coffee or tea or oatmeal available. Uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Flight staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Leg room better than average."
Cons: "We boarded the airline and actually got airborne for about 15 minutes before we were told by the captain that there were "technical problems" and would be force to return to (KEF) the original airport. Once there, we were told that we needed to exit and board another aircraft, which would depart in about 2 hours (all told the delay was around 3 hours total). In the meantime, the airline gave us food vouchers for the food court to compensate for our inconvenience. The only problem was, we weren't hungry, that wasn't what worried us... what worried us was that our Airfrance connecting flight to Florence, at the following airport (CDG Paris), departed about 15 minutes before our ( new) arrival time. We told this problem to icelandair staff at Reykjavik airport, there was no attempt by them to help alleviate our problem, they merely told us that we would have to talk to Airfrance about this problem as our Airfrance ticket wasn't booked on the same itinerary, and so it appeared that we were on our own. We passed the two hour layover relentlessly attempting to contact Airfrance to inform them of our status, hoping we could get re-booked on a later flight.... And so we arrived in Paris late, as expected, and learned that, not only did we miss our departing flight to Florence, without refund or a new flight booked, but we also forfeited our RETURN flight to Paris, not set to depart for THREE WEEKS. Stuck in Paris without a flight, now 16 hours after our journey began, extremely tired, angry, confused...we then had to book another round trip ticket from Paris, costing us an additional $900 USD! Although my anger and sense of injustice is largely aimed at Airfrance (because they still cancelled our return flight even though we contacted them numerous times to inform them of our dilemma), it would have been reasonable for icelandair to have worked with us and perhaps put us on a different flight, perhaps to Rome?, instead of dismissing us so thoughtlessly, because, after all, it was the icelandair flight that was delayed 3 hours and caused the problem in the first place. Right?"
Pros: "Smooth flight,cheerful crew, easy overall."
Cons: "Long lines to stamp passports made short connection time very difficult - almost missed the plane, airline should reconsider booking connections with very short amount of time at airport. Also, a light free snack (pretzels? chips?) would be nice."
Pros: "A surprising amount of legroom! The flight was incredibly well managed. We were well taken care of and everything was prompt and efficient."
Cons: "The gate at Keflavik had nowhere to sit. I prefer some sort of included food, but all of it requires payment--even little snacks."
Cons: "Hearded through constuction with poor directions and had to ride a bus and stand outside for 20 minutes in Iceland at 5 am trying to board a plane."
Pros: "Ahead of my flight, I was texted twice that there was no in-flight entertainment system on board, so iPads would be provided for use during the duration of the flight. It still provided all the flight information and entertainment I had previously experienced on the brand new plane, so it was great! And I loved that I was warned ahead of time so that I was not surprised at the slight inconvenience (which wasn't much of an inconvenience at all). Also, I didn't manage to pay for my food as I had left my wallet in the overhead compartment, so when I reminded the flight attendants once everyone had left the plane, they just told me not to worry about it! Too nice... Finally, I also appreciated the timeliness and efficiency of the entire crew."
Pros: "Luggage made all the very short connections, which has never been the case with other airlines such as BA, Air Nez Zealand, Delta and AA."
Cons: "pay for food"
Pros: "We ran a bit late but the crew made up for it!"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "nothing to eat, not even snacks!"
Cons: "Small seats No meals served for free Bus flights connection at Reykjavik airport Signals and directions at Reykjavik airport"
Pros: "Dinner and boarding"
Cons: "Seats, noise and kids running, walking and CRAWLING in the aisles and lack of wifi and entertainment that I can choose, Also, the bathrooms ran out of paper and the crew was not attentive. They didn't do anything about the kids disruptive behavior and extremely load talking (reciting abc and counting). I asked if they could talk to the parents and they said no, the beverage service was not good as I couldn't get more water and the seats were awful! Why wasnt the wifi working? even if it worked I'd have to purchase it even tho it was an international flight. I will not fly American Airlines again!"
Pros: "Calm flight that was ahead of schedule"
Cons: "One surly flight attendant. No enough chance to sleep"
Pros: "the movies selection was quite nice"
Cons: "I have to run to get to my connection flight"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and it was nice to have a complimentary meal and wine. We landed very early."
Cons: "This plane has not been updated since before I was born. The seats were extremely uncomfortable and there was no in seat entertainment, just overhead screens. I was never able to get the WiFi to work. There were no power outlets, and we were never offered headphones, eye masks or ear plugs. I expected more from American since our 2hr flight from Orlando to JFK had working WiFi, power outlets and in-seat video monitors."
Pros: "The plane departed and arrived as scheduled. Flight attendants weee courteous and responsive."
Cons: "I was cramped in Seat B."
Pros: "American Airlines Crew, friendly and personable"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. On time departure and landing."
Cons: "No individual entertainment screens so only one entertainment choice and screen was too far away. At the same time, flickering light from screen was distracting on a red-eye flight where people want to sleep -- better to not have entertainment at all."
Cons: "Check in at Paris took 2 hours to get through passport control and baggage pick up."
Pros: "Crew are saving a bad experience"
Cons: "Space are laughable Food is bad If I have a choice, I'll not take an american airlines for any international travel"
Pros: "The flight crew was professional, friendly and competent. They served the dinner as early in the flight as possible."
Cons: "This was a plane with central screens along the aisle, and the airline chose to broadcast a sci-fi action movie with almost constant flashing blue light, and violent action scenes. This was first of all a movie that many people, including me, would never choose to watch, but since it was on the aisle screens there was no getting away from it. It was also unsuitable for children, even without sound. But mainly, I object to the showing of any film in that situation - only aisle screens available, and on a night flight where most of the passengers are trying to sleep. I was awakened several times by the flashing lights. Other things: one of the bathrooms was not very clean, and the plane felt like the usual cattlecar, with just 3 seats on each side of the aisle, which is unusual and unpleasant for a transatlantic flight."
Pros: "There was a female flight attendant who was extremely rude and coarse with everyone on the flight. It was painful to watch and annoying to experience. I will pass on BA in the future. People who dislike other people should not be placed in customer service roles."
Pros: "I loved the delay."
Cons: "Sits are very tight."
Pros: "Airline crew was good. Attendant was appreciative for my daughter translating for her. There were two passengers who did not speak English. One spoke french and the other Spanish. The food provided was tasty."
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable, not enough leg room, too small ( I am a smaller person.). Did not like that could not reserve seats in advance without paying $50. Spent almost an hour with agent to get two bags checked for free. Iberia flight operated by American allowed two free bags. Agent took awhile to discover this was correct then she got locked out system. There was no regard that we had a flight to catch. No individual TV's."
Pros: "The flight departed on time, landed early, had plenty of entertainment, and the crew were pleasant."
Cons: "Check-in was problematic: the first agent claimed my luggage allowance was only one checked bag, even though the ticket said 2. Had to wait in a second line to fix it."
Pros: "The boarding was fast, the flight was faster than expected too, crew was very efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Space between seats too small, breakfast not good, too far inside the plane... Not so happy of the company rules : whatever you want to change, it will cost you. I suppose it's the way to keep flights cheap, but it's not fair to pay if when you arrive first, you have to pay to change for another seat... One free luggage of 23 kg when you cross the Atlantic is not enough..."
Pros: "Since air travel holds little charm for those of us who ride in economy class, my expectations are pretty low. The crew was polite and there were no delays."
Cons: "The food was typically low quality."
Pros: "staff was amazing, entertainment great, dasani sparkling lime water tasty, very clean and reasonably comfortable"
Cons: "the breakfast was made of 90% sugar - this was very disappointing."
Pros: "Easy and safe flight to destination. Not meant to be a 5 star hotel."
Pros: "Got to Paris. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Very tight seats that had minimal room to sleep. My knees hit the seat in front of me when sitting upright"
Cons: "FLIGHT DELAYED 3 hours, miserable uncomfortable plane- awful wines (grape juice) and not entertainment in flight-"
Pros: "Good service from crew members"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2 hours"
Cons: "This is our honeymoon! Every single blessed thing you sent said British Airways, but it was really American. Ended up at wrong terminal. Staff uncaring, plane cramped, seat reservation not honored. The worst. You will be getting a letter on your deceptive practices and I am going to bury you on social media. Kevin Howard"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Pros: "Everything was smooth and organized. The flight even arrived early. Friendly crew and comfortable seats with extra leg room (but these were too expensive). Food was quite good for airline fare."
Cons: "Fee for more legroom."
Cons: "One hour late"
Cons: "Could not buy snacks"
Cons: "These 767's should be retired. I can get a better flying experience being jammed into a Jet Blue flight to Florida than this. And that costs 1/4 of the price."
Pros: "The plane and facilities were all very nice."
Cons: "Requested a raw vegetarian meal when prompted but message was not delivered to airline evidently. Flight attendant did not attempt to find alternate meal and implied we had not followed proper directions."
Pros: "The flight was very smooth and the crew was so friendly!"
Cons: "It was an older plane and it felt a bit cramped."
Pros: "I did not have a seat! Waiting for people to give up their seats!"
Pros: "Food. There was dinner (and wine) and breakfast. Check-in was quick, flight departure was on time."
Pros: "Crew was excellent and live tv options"
Cons: "Temperature on flight was freezing cold!"
Pros: "1. Let me check in online but NOT my wife ... we are both Advantage Gold & TSA pre .... wasted 2 hours on the phone with idiots in their Manila call center 2. An ancient plane, cramped seating, wretched food. 3. An hour late departing JFK & arriving CDG so right in the middle of Paris rush hour !!"
Pros: "Kind and courteous crew. Soft blanket for free."
Cons: "The seats were old and uncomfortable. There was no internet. There was no power for electronics. There was only one movie option (terrible selection) and the screens were spaced out so far I couldn't have seen it anyway. All of this would have been ok for a short flight but for an overseas flight it was the worst I've experienced."
Cons: "No tv's for such a long flight. One tv on the ceiling every so often does not qualify for entertainment.. flight was delayed for 3 hours. Never American Airlines again"
Cons: "Flight left 4 hours late"
Pros: "On time start and finish. All but one of the crew were pleasant. One was a bit imperious and seeming overwtought."
Cons: "The 9 hour international leg of our flight was very, very uncomfortable. I'm 6'2", not a freak, and my legs were jammed against the seat frame in front on this new dreamliner Legroom AND seat width both markedly less than the short haul Airbus on our fist leg. To get one of the last 'extra room' seats would have been 179.00...rediculous. This was abuse."
Cons: "Flight cancelled American Airlines aircraft old 30+ years No AC No entertainment"
Cons: "No wifi or any video"
Pros: "The crew for the most part were friendly. Boarding was easy enough"
Cons: "The one thing that stood out was that the flight attendants weren't offering water outside of the regular beverage service. I've never been on an international flight where there wasn't almost a constant flow of water. I was so parched after 8 hours. It seemed unusual. Also the seats are so small. I'm only 130 and 5'7" and it was a tough ride"
Pros: "We arrived safe."
Cons: "The plane had been on the ground for 6 hours prior boarding time, yet we leave until 1 hour late. Waited for the food to be loaded and then waited for paperwork to be signed. Really?"
Pros: "Staff was professional. Beverages were plentiful. The quality of the wine was actually quite good."
Cons: "Not enough toilets for the number of passengers."
Pros: "The American Air crew was great very attentive and they pass out free drinks"
Cons: "The 787 is tight and when the fight is 7 plus hours it tends to ware on you"
Pros: "Plane was brand new. Nice to flight in a plane like this"
Cons: "Unexpected changes in the boarding gate, not clearly notified"
Pros: "All the movies"
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent."
Cons: "Crappy old plane. No individual tvs. Offered entertainment was truly awful."
Pros: "Price, boarding process and seats were good"
Cons: "Crew was border line rude, and for sure neither attentive nor pleasant, food was really really bad."
Pros: "The crew were exceptionally friendly and helpful. They made the negatives about the flight much more bearably be their excellence service whether during boarding, in flight, or after landing."
Cons: "I booked the flight originally through british airways and expected your standard, modern plane for cross atlantic travel. Boarding to find myself on a 767 designed (and likely built) in the 80s was rather disappointing."
Pros: "Timing and transit time was excellent"
Cons: "Food was horribe and no dedicated tv per seat"
