I could not check in beyond Zurich as the flights to Singapore were overbooked. I was told not to worry, they will find a way to get you there. It was an appalling approach to long haul. The flight itself was okay but minimum service and no food.
This flight was cay Nobody sent any email to me about this
Minimum two kind food options
Pros: "Flight was cancelled. Kayak did not notify us. We found out by accident. There was no customer service from kayak. We had to solve with with the airline"
Pros: "Everything was comfortable."
Cons: "I can't think of anything."
Pros: "More or less on time"
Cons: "Outdated aircraft. Flight took longer than usual."
Cons: "Time schedule Better customer services"
Pros: "Delay was for 30 min"
Pros: "Again staff was very friendly and helpful."

Pros: "Crew was great, seating comfortable."
Pros: "Swiss is aways good"
Pros: "All operations a-ok"
Pros: "We have been flying Swiss for years and they are the most reliable and best organized airline, we have ever experienced."
Cons: "I didn't notice that I had booked some sort of new economy light category where checked baggage is no longer included and to check baggage when booked into this class cost $60 per bag per flight. So overall on the trip I paid $240 extra for luggage alone."
Pros: "The space of the seat is wide. Nice chocolate."
Cons: "First, they announced that they need some passengers to voluntarily give up the booking in exchange for 280 refunds (a slightly higher rate which not worth to do it) and 1 stopover the fight to Rome which will arrive at 22.00 instead (our flight is 17.35). About 15 minutes before boarding time, they announced flight delaying. Around 17.45, they announced gate changing from B to A which located at opposite side of the the airport so all passengers run there because of everyone afraid that their booking might be canceled because no one agrees to give up. At both gates, many people try to jump in the queue which no staff comes in the manage the queue. During waiting on the board, the air condition seems to be closed, hard to breathe. Around 19.00, the plane took off the Zurich airport eventually, finish the 1.5 hours delay. The captain announced that it cause by the technical problem of the flight earlier but my thinking it cause from over-booking."
Pros: "The food was delicious, the staff was wonderful. Entertainment was awesome."
Cons: "The leg room or seat closeness."
Pros: "On time, nice crew"
Pros: "Both times I flew with Swiss airlines it’s been great! Food is pletntiful, staff is very kind."
Pros: "good flight didn’t have any problems"
Pros: "Everything was good. From the service to the food."
Pros: "They magically appeared with water when I got thirsty and were all great. Veg entree from Hiltl good but a little surprising. Baked apple slices on top of mac & cheese? Sure, why not.? And 2 chocolate bars this flight!"
Cons: "Again could not check in online., or at self-serve kiosk at airport. General complaint to all airlines: You can do better with boarding efficiency."

Pros: "Nice experience."
Cons: "Seats are not so comfortable. Crew is nice, but not too nice"
Pros: "Flight was exactly on time as described. Crew was friendly"
Pros: "Swiss Air the best!!!!"
Pros: "It was very efficient and the staff was very nice. The line was long but fast. The seats have quite the lean which made it easier to lie back. Getting Swiss chocolate is always a plus."
Cons: "The seats weren’t as comfortable or fluffy but it was a short flight so it can very well be overseen."
Pros: "I loved Swiss flights.. its staff and in flight expereince"
Pros: "Nothing!! And by the way this is the last time I travel with you guys. I couldn’t travel because of my itinerary doula -Bruxelle - Zurich- Washington Dulles . I was not told when I bought the ticket that I will need a visa to transit between Bruxel to Zurich. Now they told me that my only option is to buy another ticket . Thank God éthiopien Airline was more affordable."
Cons: "Nothing!! And by the way this is the last time I travel with you guys. I couldn’t travel because of my itinerary doula -Bruxelle - Zurich- Washington Dulles . I was not told when I bought the ticket that I will need a visa to transit between Bruxel to Zurich. Now they told me that my only option is to buy another ticket . Thank God éthiopien Airline was more affordable."
Cons: "I have just had the most unpleasant experience with Swiss Air and feel that anyone on FB should be very careful when dealing with this airline. I am a Gold Member of Star Alliance for more than 20 years and have flown dozens of times on Swiss and would expect courtesy and consideration in return for my loyalty to their airline. Their flight from Hong Kong to Zurich leaves at 00:15. I mistakenly booked this for Nov 9th instead of the intended late evening of the 9th which then turns out to be Nov 10th. When I discovered my error, I called Swiss at least six times to explain my error and ask if my son could stand by for the same flight on the 10th or even apply the amount to rebook the same flight the next day. ZERO flexibility or consideration. Missed flight, lose entire value. Start from scratch. Astonished that an airline that claims to be serving their customers would treat me this way. I travel through Europe at least 6-10 times a year from Asia. I will now route through Frankfurt, Munich, Paris, London, Vienna, Instanbul or even Moscow before ever going through Zurich again. I encourage anyone making travel plans to be very careful when considering flights with Swiss Airlines. Perhaps this treatment of a loyal customer explains why they went through bankruptcy already once."
Pros: "Very friendly crew, good legroom in economy, excellent meals."
Pros: "Kindness, courtesy and smiles"
Cons: "nothing in particular"
Pros: "Good clean service that Swiss is known for."
Cons: "There’s never overhead space for carryon. Ever since they went to lift, I have had to put my luggage in a row near the rear, making me wait until the plane almost complete Disembarks before able to get the bag."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Crew just ok."
Cons: "Booked four flights from Zurich to Prague, but plans changed. No way to get a refund or cancellation although I tried two weeks beforehand. Disappointing to say the least."
Pros: "Comfortable....customer-service oriented staff. Enjoyable food, and entertainment."
Pros: "Boarding without frills. On-time departure. Overall good food. Great cabin crew; they took care of a toddler with a fever and her mother."
Cons: "Worst experience. Very rude employees. Not great flexibility with carry on luggage beware"
Pros: "The Swiss airline bit was about an hour late. Weather etc. But such things happen. The flight itself was fine. They even served food and a beer."
Cons: "The queues at Heathrow for passport control were long. The non-EU q was awful. Luckily the tube was running all night on those lines we needed."
Pros: "It was an uneventful trip, which is what you want in a trip by air. Boarding was easy, seats are pretty comfortable, staff friendly and helpful."
Pros: "The quiches are so yummy, and very compact and easy."
Pros: "I was so impressed with my whole experience with Swissair on my recent trip from Miami to Malaga, Spain. Very courteous and friendly crew, up to date aircraft and right on time!"
Pros: "Friendly crew members who kept serving food and drinks before asking. Meals, snack, drinks, hot towel, and cookies! The plane was also very clean and apacious enough."
Cons: "Checking in we had a nasty representative, but other than that, all was well"
Cons: "There was a supposed difficulty with my entry in Europe when I tried to Check into Chicago. I thought that I had to cancel my flight. Swiss air representatives had to do much consultation, which took nearly an hour, while I was standing there the whole time. At the end, I was thanked for my patience and told all should be well and not even given a small upgrade for the distress this caused me. Traveling is disagreeable in general now, and personally, even moreso after this episode."
Pros: "Very prompt and courteus"
Cons: "Baggage missing for three days. Communication poor."
Pros: "The food was delivered fast. The meals were delicious, especially the chicken and polenta. I also appreciated the ice cream and I enjoyed the selection of movies and television. I also appreciated the map and trip information display."
Cons: "We have bought our seats, but in the airport it was found that our seats were assigned to somebody else and nothing could be done to give them back to us"
Quicker drink and snack service
I slept the entire way, so not sure what to say.
The flight attendants were happy!
Cons: "Very comfortable flight!"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "too crowded"
Pros: "Seat comfortable and the seatbelts actually fit!"

Pros: "Nothing three hours late I went to dc and then took the train"
Pros: "Crew was really nice."
Cons: "My first flight was delay because of that I lost my second flight."
Cons: "We left Salt Lake City so late that I missed all my train connections and ruined my plans."
Pros: "Standard boarding The plane was on time"
Cons: "Better boarding process.Such as the one used by Southwest"
Pros: "The flight was on time the crew and captain was very helpful. They got us on and off quickly and safe"
Pros: "Almost 3 hours of delayed"
Pros: "Crew was the best I have had in 2019 on Delta, the only good crew."
Cons: "Everything at the Atlanta Airport. From the airport and staff itself to those working for Delta Airlines. It has been so bad, that I am thinking of flying with American Airlines again and avoiding the Atlanta Airport all together. Absolutely the worst airport in the country, Delta not much better"
Pros: "Good entertainment options."
Cons: "Only water and coffee available. Flight had been delayed over an hour."
Cons: "I paid to be in row 1 first class, when I checked in I was in the first row, then as I boarded I was told my seat changed to the back row in first class for no reason at all. I choose the 1st row for a ready and I expect to sit there! 2 flights in a row that Delta moved my seat for no reason"
Pros: "Entertaining crew"
Cons: "On time arrival (we were late)."
Pros: "I like flying Delta. Make you feel comfortable and at ease."
Pros: "The crew was nice, the flight was so short, there was little interaction with them."
Cons: "Boarding was a disaster, people didn’t have seats which caused a delay in boarding. It was a mess. The seats were uncomfortable and too small. I know it’s a short flight but it was just too tight in there. The flight was delayed and the communication was all over; the time was constantly changin"
Pros: "Don't know yet, because I have not left Korea."
Cons: "Not happy that DELTA changed my flight again and now I arrive (6) hours later in Philly. Longer layover in Detroit is not comforting! Hoping/praying that DELTA doesn't change more on this flight going home!"
Pros: "nice crew"
Cons: "terrible seat comfort, late departure due to airline’s booking problems"
Pros: "They did get to reschedule me on both my flights, but lost my bag."
Pros: "Flight was safe, smooth & fast."
Pros: "Pilot was courteous, pleasant and kept us informed of flight status."
Cons: "Seats have no leg room!!!"
Pros: "It was too cold on the flight. I asked for a blanket and luckily the stewardess had one. However, before giving it to me, she told me it was the only one on the flight!"
Pros: "Smooth , fast, comfortable"
Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Cons: "No TV unfortunately"
Pros: "What I liked was getting to my house."
Cons: "The air-conditioning was extremely cold; on the positive side, I was given a blanket. The plane did not have any kind of tv screen in which to watch films or programs. Space was unbelievably tight between seats and rows; I cannot imagine a horizontally or vertically big person having any level of comfort. In general, the service was quite poor, making me wonder how does Delta treat the flight attendants, for they seemed tired and careless. The above did not happen in any of my other flights: Atlanta-Guadalajara, Guadalajara-CDMX, CDMX-Atlanta."
Pros: "Everything, smooth flight with an entertaining crew."
Pros: "The exit row seats reclined."
Cons: "USB charging didn't appear to work. No meal service. Very brief lay over. This is bad because a 6A flight from RNO to SLC with a <50m layover and then a SLC to PHL flight means that you do not get any food until 11P when landing in PHL."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "No entertainment on flight. No smoking in Minneapolis airport"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. The staff were friendly, the flight fast and calm."
Cons: "Nothing that can be done, just tough being 6'5" in a connection plane."
Pros: "Made it out of Detroit that same day! Friendly flight attendants!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. And then cancelled. We were booked into a later flight 8 hours later that was also delayed again due to weather but we did make it out of Detroit that night. Other people were not as lucky."
Pros: "They have great and friend staff."
Cons: "Delta treats any passenger that isn't a member of their skymiles or anyone that doesn't purchase a seat in advance like peasants. You don't get assigned a seat until YouTube up at the airport... That's fine, not really a big deal. But because you didn't select a seat, they don't let you print or view your boarding pass on your phone, forcing you to go to the checking desk. For someone that has TSA pre check and travels alot, all that extra time adds up and can sometimes cause you to miss your flight. Because there is on "fast line" when you check-in like there is at the security check point. I only have this problem with Delta, never American airlines..."
Cons: "my flight from JFK to Cancun had entertainment (TV, movie screen, headphones, etc). This one did not. Was kinda disappointed."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "If flight is full all the time get a bigger plane"
Cons: "NO ENTERTAINMENT no snacks on the second flight after an hr 24 layover AND 52 minutes delay, seat near the bathroom which smelled horrible"
Pros: "Over all the flight was smooth and great"
Cons: "Kayak, the confirmation email that was sent was incorrect, ended up flying delta - had a scare when checking in at the air europa desk and the attendant says "theres no flights to Malaga" - after further investigation from the staff, we found out it was a Delta flight and NOT and air europa flight"
Cons: "All "carry-ons" were taken at the jetway, which was fine. But, when we landed, as passengers were trying to get off of the plane, the attendants were putting all of the collected luggage at the entry to the jetway. It created congestion. Then, anyone who had luggage, had to lineup against the side of the jetway, awaiting their luggage, and increasing the congestion. First, it was inconvenient. Worse, if there was any kind of emergency, I believe it would have created a unsafe environment. Very Poor Design & Process ! ! !"
Pros: "Our plane had mechanical issue with a parking brake which they left us know about once we loaded the plane. Unfortunately it was going to take to long so they switched us to another plane."
Cons: "Airlines in general need to enforce the carry on luggage rules. If it doesn't match the dimensions for the carry on specks then make the people Check it. Don't let it go. If I paid for a seat and I'm allowed two carry ons then there should be room for them. Don't ask people to check bags because of a full plane. The crew should have there own place to store their belongings, not where the passengers do and take their space. The life rafts need to be easy to get to but again should take up a spot a passenger has paid for their luggage to go. If that is the only space for these items then don't allow passengers to bring two items if in those seats or on the whole plane. It's really disappointing when your told you may have to check your bag because there's not enough room."
Pros: "Staff was nice and friendly, pilot did a good job of avoiding turbulence, food was good, good choice of entertainment available"
Cons: "Seats are tight and uncomfortable, boarding lines were very long"
Pros: "The attendants"
Cons: "The delay and no free wifi."
Pros: "Tail winds provided an early arrival. When my flight was rebooked due to a delay on my first booking I was upgraded to Permium booking and drinks were complementary on the flight from Atlanta to Philadelphia."
Impossible de s'enregistrer en ligne avec Finnair
The flight attendants did not come around to give out headsets but I had mine so I did not ask if they had them. The second meal was better than other flights I've been on, it was a stone oven baked pizza and not some sugary breakfast full of carbs. I tried the red wine, it tasted sweet and low quality. Would not get that again. The beer selection included an IPA, which was not really craft because Goose Island is owned by one of the biggest beer companies Anheuser-Busch. However, I did appreciate having an IPA on the menu from a former craft brewery which was better than all the other big brands. I'd like it more if it was a real craft beer from a non-mass producer. Snacks were made available to pick-up in the mid-plane galley which not all flights do so it's a plus. Movies selection was expansive and it included multiple films that were nominated or awarded at film festivals such as Sundance, Tribeca and others. I was very pleased with the selection. Keep up the quality! Plane was clean, seemed new, bathrooms fairly clean, nice soap and had all the required paper supplies.
No leg space. I am 6ft tall, I am am not super tall. There is zero leg space. Borderline dangerous because with turbulence my knees are forced against the metal on the seat in front of mines. Horrible and painful experience. Not comfortable at all. Just one extra inch of space would be a big difference.
Both our US flights were cancelled ( BWI to JFK and PHL to DCA). For JFK, they were able to rebook us on a British airlines flight but arriving at our Athens destination much later. We sacrificed a day of sightseeing because of this. For return to DCA, they could find no alternative option same day, only a possible next day in late morning. We opted to take the train home. Needless to say, we are not happy with AA stateside service
Ice cream, seat comfort economy plus, plane 787, Could be better if we are able to pick seats online.
Check in was a disaster. We had to check in to each leg separately - and had to figure that out on our own. Buying a FinnAir marketed flight created a nightmare.
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, food was surprisingly good."
Cons: "My luggage was lost"
Pros: "It is misleading to review this as finnair flight. Not relevant"
Pros: "Good movie selection, frequent water refills, boarding was quick and easy with ample overhead stowage"
Cons: "Seat recline was broken, non-adjustable headrest, older flight crew less tolerant of passenger disrespect, not quite enough bathrooms, food had my stomach in knots"
Pros: "They moved my boyfriend and I from the back two seats on the plane up to the front with four seats across the middle! This was amazing for the long flight and allowed us to be very comfortable throughout the flight. Great service as well with three food servings and constant trash pickup."
Cons: "Woman in front talked endlessly"
Pros: "Pleasant staff and crew."
Cons: "Tv screens are old and function very poorly."
Pros: "The crew did an excellent job definitely went beyond good service, I enjoyed the food and they came often offering drinks. It was probabky my first long flight I wasn't thirsty at all. Overall I was very happy with my trip hope thank you!"
Cons: "I got slightly cold at one point and wished the lights were I little lower but I understand why the weren't."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "The entertainment system is terribly slow and hard to work with, food was awful. Next time I will bring my own."
Pros: "great flight. a little cofusingto get the right airline"
Pros: "There was a flight attendant who was perfect for his career-absolutely the best ever on the Rome to Philadelphia flight-a tall, African American gentleman. So accommodating and friendly!"
Pros: "The fact the plane didn't crash"
Cons: "Couldn't check in online- extremely slow at counters to get my checked bags, forced a meal of curry since I was in back of plane and there were no more 'non-vegan meals'- smelled NASTY! Ignored a lot by attendants bc rushed to get to back of plane attendant area and chat. Tv could barely be seen from window and then volume/distortion was awful while flying. The attendants were gaga about a screaming baby but ignored the rest of us"
Pros: "The service were very good. Just wish the food better selection."
Cons: "The leg room were tight."
Cons: "I paid for an upgraded seat and after boarding other passengers were being moved to the same area that I had paid for an upgraded seat FOR FREE!"
Pros: "I flew with American to London and with British in the way back... British air is such a nicer experience from the food, to the crew, to the entertainment."
Pros: "Loved the flight attendance!! They were friendly, witty and flexible."
Pros: "The flight attendant ruined my trip and experience3 with this airline."
Cons: "Twice I was passed up and overlooked for food and drink when they were being provided to all. The attendant said i needed to speak up if i wanted something and i pointed out i did and he said he would get me on the way back but never came back until he was picking up the empties. He said everyone else seemed to get served what was my problem and I pointed out the girl next to me was also skipped to which he turned around and never walked down my aisle again. Also, the lack of wiFi on this leg was a disappointment as it was available on the trip to Barcelona. That goes a long way to making the long trip more enjoyable."
Pros: "crew was friendly and courteous"
Cons: "had to be bussed to different part of airport to board plane no sound on the entertainment console"
Pros: "The fact that I got home in one piece I really like."
Cons: "Planes are old, small tv screens in aisles, older seats and headrests. I had requested Gluten Free meals and on the way to Amsterdam they did okay (besides the snacks). On the way back they didn't even offer me the second meal GF, I had to ask another flight attendant who went looking for it and found one.. so it was there, they just hadn't bothered to look for it. I also never understand why you wouldn't start boarding with the last rows? Is that just me? The aisles are always so crowded when the last rows walk in and there's always a line."
Pros: "Crewmembers were professional and nice!"
Cons: "Snack and meal were not so tasty, and the descending before landing was really uncomfortable."
Pros: "Good service, on time, friendly and helpful flight attendants."
Pros: "Departed on time and arrived early. What more could you ask for?!"
Pros: "Seemed to be a little more leg room than usual. Crew was courteous and efficient. It was an American Airlines trans-Atlantic flight that arrived early. Overall a good flight."
Cons: "The response of the American Airlines entertainment system is as slow as pond water, although the choice of entertainment was very good."
Pros: "The more modern plane with USB ports that actually charge and the higher quality and bigger displays really help make the trip more enjoyable."
Cons: "Not as much to eat on this BA flight back to Philidelphia from Hethrow as there was on the American Airlines flight there."
Cons: "The plane was old. The movies were played in the aisle and the selection was inappropriate/terrible. No kids on the flight and they played a Disney dinosaur movie and the Peanuts movie."
Pros: "The plane was not full"
Cons: "I wish it truly were Finnair instead of American: The seat, the legroom, the fact that you have to pay 20% more to have the same rotten seat 12 rows further up front, the food that's barely fit for human consumption, the presence of 20 year old cathode screens that can't be watched but do prevent the cabin being dark, etc."
Pros: "Once we got on the flight it was all good!"
Cons: "We had the worst experience getting to our flight this airport is so badly managed it is laughable."
Pros: "Friendly flight crew made me feel very welcome . Food and drinks service was excellent, nice choices. Movie selection was vast."
Pros: "I was not well and at the check in the lady was kind to change my seat ..."
Cons: "I order a special meal ....no meal for me on the plan ."
Cons: "The flight attendants blocked off the last three rows of seats and laid down and went to sleep!"
Pros: "Flight operated by BA; food was excellent, wine was free, crew were friendly."
Cons: "Legroom so cramped its dangerous; worse than on my CRJ connecting flight."
Pros: "Great service. Comfy seats."
Cons: "Hi -- the flight was fine. A bit of turbulence and rocky but it was raining so it's understandable. The crew was nice, professional. The plan was actually delayed 1.5 hours. They sent a text message at 7:15 apparently but my phone was not on so I understand not receiving it. I also left for the airport around 7:15. I also received an email from Kayak at 7 am that said there was no delay so I didn't check to see if there would be any others. I never received an email from Kayak about the delay. I would just suggest making sure all the alerts I get are correct. I also receieved an email to check in 72 hours before the flight but it wouldn't let me on Finnair.com Maybe I was supposed to go to Open Skies. Thanks! Melodie"
Cons: "The food was terrible , the flight was canceled from Paris to phila , i didn't know til 8 pm . It was very hard to have an other flight from London to phila. A lot of souffering for me ."
Pros: "Courtesy of attendants, smooth flight, good service"
Cons: "Food and your TV screens are not good. Very hard to operate a touch system which is so insensitive. Movie choice rather poor as well"
Pros: "Very friendly staff, smooth ride and information provided"
Pros: "This was actually a USAirways flight now rebranded as American. A lot of people had to check baggage. There was no in-seat video entertainment. The crew were surly."
Pros: "About the only positive was that the plane left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "Checking luggage was a nightmare. I stood well over an hour in line. We barely made the flight, and afterwards our luggage was lost, and it still has not been found. The wheelchair that I had ordered for my travelling companion was not there, either at Manchester or Philadelphia. The seats that I had reserved were given away to someone else. Whilst the plane flight itself was okay, the airport experiences on either end were miserable."
Pros: "The service is great , I enjoyed the food as well. Attendants were very friendly."
Cons: "When flying from US to Erupoe there should be a private tv screen directly in front of every passenger. On this flight the tv is in the middle of the isle on the ceiling. That's terrible ! When you are on a 8 + hour flight. People want their own screen with their own options. Been on many flights to and from Eruope , this was the only flight that was set up like this. Change it"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and the entertainment was updated."
Cons: "Philadelphia airport services were terrible: - immigration processing was too long and took more than one hour dur to out of service customs machines and insufficient immigration personnel. - luggage handling at the airport careless and resulted in the breaking of some of my belongings."
Pros: "I was running late getting through check-in because there was an abandoned backpack that caused a huge mob scene and delay. The American Airlines/(Finnair) check-in staff were WONDERFUL and made it all OK, pulling us out of the mob to get us through check-in. Then I went through security, which the check-in staff had tried to expedite, and got stopped for a random inspection. Then, after boarding passes were scanned, I was again stopped for a random search that took apart every zippered corner of my purse and my carry-on bag. But again, everyone was lovely to deal with. By the time I got on the plane I was grateful for having caught the flight, and for the kindness of the Paris staff, and marveling at what an obstacle course it had been. And I had enough leg room."
Cons: "1. The sound on my in-flight screen did not transmit the movie sounds, so I read a book all the way back. 2. The red wine was great to have. The food was like school cafeteria food, so I ate what I had brought with me. 3. The seats on airplanes never fit my body right. I sit very straight and upright, and I'm fairly tall. The airplane seats keep forcing my head forward and my back into a hunch."
Pros: "everything except food"
Cons: "A bit confusing and not sufficiently emphasized and explained. There were two sets of record finders, two sets of billing. For a while, I was wondering if I was double billed."
There was literally one crew member for our whole section because two of them in our section just laid in the back rows for 5 hours (*this is not an exaggeration. we were surprised that we could find no one, that they didn't help us, but pointed to the one other woman, so we started counting). This made it difficult to order drinks and snacks and receive help when it was needed. I was pretty shocked honestly.
The seats reclined way too far back. The gentleman in front of me moved his chair so far back that the table was unusable (because his headrest was too "over top" of it) and I was unable to watch my screen.
2 queues for check in at Malaga. One said AerClub boarding which was a small queue. The other queue was extremely long and slow. A lot of people who obviously were not aer club members joined the queue and were not checked. We were one and a half hours in the standard queue. No aer lingus staff to monitor the queue. Very unacceptable and frustrating.
flight was fine. did not eat anything or use entertainment as mostly slept. flight was slightly delayed but not too badly.
Not only did 12 family members fly before us on three separate flights and all had no luggage on arrival (some for two weeks), we were grounded unnecessarily prior to departure for over 12 hours before flight being cancelled and staff were not to be seen…. Refreshment vouchers promised but never materialised
No bag drop in Malaga Aerport big disappointment
The flight was cancelled, and communication from the airline and kayak was impossible, making for an incredibly stressful trip which may also involve losing a lot of money (I am still trying to figure out how to contact the airline to make sure that I don't lose my return trip).
Seats on plane were new but very uncomfortable. Entertainment good.
Pros: "Indeed the crew was amazing!"
Cons: "Nothing. It was all good!"
Pros: "Rapid boarding with no delays"
Cons: "No snacks, no entertainment."
Pros: "The seat was broken, The temperature was freezing and despite asking 3 staff members nothing happened to sort out the situation."
Cons: "several thinkd as above"
Cons: "plane was so old, the seat was worn out and terribly uncomfortable sitting on it for 8 hours. It also had about a 2 inch gap of missing seat cushion. plane was very dirty. service was not friendly."
Cons: "My seat was broken, so I had to move to another. Fodd options were less than expected. Overall experience was good. Would definitely fly again, but bring my own snacks."
Cons: "Food was meh...would have rather had a sandwich than the congealed mess that was supposed to be cheese sauce. Needed way more water offered for such a long flight."
Cons: "The air hostess was very rude and showed no cursory to passengers"
Pros: "Staff on board were friendly"
Cons: "7 hour delay with no effort to facilitate passengers"
Pros: "One male Steward was first class,efficient and very helpful to everyone"
Cons: "My flights were cancelled by Aer lingus and I was rebooked improperly, resulting in my being removed from a plane and having to be rebooked at least three times because of how long it took."
Pros: "Staff were great and the pilot did a great job."
Cons: "The plane was not as nice as some of the other planes we have flown with but considering the short flight this was fine."
Pros: "I loved that they had blankets and pillows available, and the seats overall were comfortable. I also loved the in seat screens so we could watch movies. The select was a little limited compared to other airlines, but they still had some brand new releases. They also fed us two meals and a snack, and the crew was super nice."
Cons: "The boarding process was a little confusing. It was done by row numbers but not very well announced, so I wasn’t actually sure when my row was supposed to board."
Pros: "Professionalism and courtesy!!"
Pros: "Good service, attentive, courteous and friendly cabin crew. The ease of getting immigration completed at Dublin rather than having to wait in line for over an hour at London. Wheelchair assistance available right at the exit from aircraft for each flight."
Cons: "Boarding was hopeless as usual. Held us on stairways for ages after passports were checked by the ground crew"
Pros: "Very good Organisation at the Dublin Airport"
Cons: "No snack - expensive baggage-fee"
Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "They don’t even give you water unless you pay. Three hour flight. Ridiculous"
Pros: "Large plane"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "food is expensive and the drinks are robbery"
Cons: "Boarding and deplaning"
Cons: "Boarding was not done by groups, I end up storing my bag in the bin by the end of the plane while my seat was at the beginning and this was delaying my exit upon arrival. Not good experience having connected flight."
Cons: "The aircraft was old. The flight attendants were disinterested. The seats were terribly uncomfortable."
Cons: "Didn't like the fact when we landed in Dublin at 1.25 am. The plane did not park at terminal 2 but on the Tarmac where we had to walk in the cold to a door and then walk down a dingy corridor past terminal 1 security and luggage reclaim to terminal 2 to get out . If they are landing planes at the old terminal passport control and baggage reclaim should be in terminal 1 for these flights instead of a long trek"
Pros: "Nice stewards."
Cons: "Terrible bag handling and passenger experience management wrote to airline 3 times and no response. Was without luggage for a week with no offer of assistance."
Pros: "Configuration of seating"
Cons: "Minimal service didn't appear to be any attendants down ng periodic water service but I did doze off and may have missed it"
Pros: "Ahead of time"
Cons: "In South America the airlines queue you by seat no and then board from the rear first. It works like a dream"
Pros: "Speed of boarding from both the gate crew and the cabin staff. At that hour of the morning the last thing you want is hassle when boarding."
Cons: "It's a very very early morning flight."
Pros: "Friendly staff, decent food."
Cons: "Seat in front of me was too close! My knees touched for 7 hours. Plus, computer and seat support take up foot space. Very very uncomfortable for a moderately tall person (6'2")"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Short flight so not too much to worry about."
Cons: "Took carry on at gate. Not even water served."
Cons: "4* star airline...hahahaha... yeah,because charging for a newspaper and for headphones is 4 star stuff!!!! Staff are unprofessional and rude sometimes"
Pros: "Apart from the boarding everything was o.k."
Cons: "Boarding and disembarking was very badly controlled"
Cons: "I was recently on a 5 week tour of South America where I took 13 flights. They had a boarding system whereby you boarded by numbers with the highest numbers boarding first and they had 3 designated small queues 1-15 16- 30 30 -46 and this worked extremely well"
The boarding process was uneventful and normal. The plane was on the smaller side and a tight fit. Most people had to plane side check their luggage. The pilots seemed pleasant. We waited about an hour from leaving the gate to actually taking off with no information from the crew as to what was taking longer than normal. The flight attendants were informative but aggressive about the mask policy and spoke on the PA system often and for long periods of time. The attitude of the flight crew about several issues made the passengers tense. We arrived about 30 minutes behind schedule but safely.
A REVIEW BASED ON FACTUAL EXPERIENCES ON FORIGN CARRIERS AND THEIR SERVICE COMPARED TO AA and Other US CARRIERS, FIRST CLASS WHAT ? YOUR price for what not much more then a premium class seat AND ALL YOU OFFER IS a can of coke and a pkg of Fig Cookies ? Seriously. All 4 of my flights were first class, Joke of an offering, and each one sucked, I am American and I have flown over 800,000 miles and over 650 flights in 4 years, out of all these flights I've only flown US Carriers 12 times and I know that is a factual number. Jet Blue I will fly again, they act are a good and ran and they know how to take care of their guests AMERICAN AIRLINES JUST SUCKS Cathay pacific, Eva Air, Air Asia, Asiana, Korean Air, ANA, Thai Air ways and many more, I fly business class and every one of these airlines blows away these Sad Poorly ran US CARRIER'S, ,
Pros: "Great comfortable seats"
Cons: "Too much turbulence"
Pros: "Easy boarding process, friendly crew member and smooth flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed which impacted our connecting flight."

Cons: "It was crowded"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "food and entertainment (5+ hours!)"
Pros: "I like to staff and flight."
Cons: "My legs are too long for the seats"
Pros: "Roomy seats excellent service good food"
Cons: "Need better choices of movies"
Cons: "Mobile boarding passes did not work and required us to go back to the service counter and print the tickets. Luckily we had time but this was a hassle given we were traveling with our 3 year old. The woman at the service desk quickly helped us print the passes but stated the mobile boarding passes tended to not scan. They should have told us to print the passes the first time we were at the counter if they knew the mobile passes tend to not work."
Pros: "Crew is helpful, seats comfortable, flight and baggage on time. Food was good for the airline."
Cons: "International connection experience is awful. I understand that AmericanAirlines is not responsible but no help or explanation was provided either."
Pros: "Food was okay"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. The tv at key seat did not work at all initially. Crew tried to re- boot it but it still didn’t work properly Flight attendant in our area was brusque and rude. And none of the others said a word to us"
Cons: "I paid $10 for the WiFi service and it wouldn’t connect at all. I had a short flight so i never got to send my emails off. American Airlines should refund me my $10."
Pros: "Nothing about the flight we screwed around before takeoff, in the air as well as on the ground. Wasted an hour and a half, missed my connection"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Plane was very old (from the 90s?), cabin kept freezing all night. Now my husband's luggage has been lost and we are getting conflicting information on how to retrieve it."
Cons: "Too many delays that made me miss the original time I was to catch my connecting flight. Missed my appointment in Spain as a result..."
Pros: "The only good thing about this flight was the free plastic cup of water they gave us right before we landed. Thanks!"
Cons: "The stewardess was outright mean! I am disabled and showed up in a wheelchair. The woman had the nerve to ask me if I was really disabled or if I was using it to cut the line. It was really horrible!"
Pros: "USB port at seat. Smooth ride and landing. Complimentary wine."
Cons: "Some of the typical unfriendly flight attendants. No way to get comfortable on the 10-hour flight. Horrible movie and other "entertainment" selections. Had to wait about 45 minutes on the tarmac after landing because they couldn't get an available gate for our scheduled flight. Beats the 5 HOUR delay on the flight out to Athens though. I have to say that's all the usual American Airlines incompetence. The cockpit crew always seem great though. I don't fly American unless I have to."
Pros: "It was on time. I liked the head rests on the seats."
Pros: "After we were boarded and ready to take off, the power on the place went off. They kept us there without any AC or even air draft for about an hour. It was hot and stuffy. They took forever to let us know what was going on. Everything else went well. I just wished they had kept us appraised on a more timely manner and had done something to control the temperature of the plane."
Pros: "Not much here. The seats were ok, but the rest of the flight the airline was just poor."
Cons: "The airline is so outdated and behind the times of their competitors, their in that they don't have in flight entertainment unless you download their app and give them your email address. On top of that when I originally booked my flights, I had made sure to have 1.5 hr for a layover between my connecting flights. Well, they decided to move up my connector such that I had 25 minutes to run across 2 terminals. They only give you pretzels on the plane, and a single soda drink. They offer you "food bundles" but why do I want to pay $8 for a sandwich that costs $1 to make."
Pros: "Good time for flight"
Cons: "Tight, hot inside plane, no refreshments"
Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "No movie screens, no video screens, no charging options, no blankets, no pillows, no fun."
Pros: "Loved all the meals. Tasty, well-coordinated."
Cons: "Attendant took too long to hand out drinks, then ran out of water for the back of the plane. By the time we got water it was almost time to land."
Pros: "On time, non stop"
Cons: "New higher prices for less service."
Pros: "great flight! THank You"
Pros: "This was a completely hassle free trip. No aggressive, angry flight attendants. The usual United Airlines features that I have become numb to were entirely a absent. The 2 hour delay did not happen!"
Cons: "The attendants could have come down the aisles a few more times. I got pretty dehydrated & had to get up & ask for water."
Pros: "The un seat entertainment"
Pros: "Comfortable and food was great So was the service"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Staff were helpful."
Cons: "It was advertised that one can see entertainment through WIFi, but from my iPad, i can't connect to this WiFi. I tried several times until I just gave up."
Pros: "A crazy day at the airport with TWO unattended baggage threats that created a back log at security. Efficiently boarded the plane and took off on time, arriving early."
Cons: "Taking a bus to the plane, being forced to wait on the bus in hot conditions to board, having to climb stairs to access plane."
Pros: "Great hard working crew. Good food and snacks. On time!!!"
Pros: "Comfy/roomy seats, friendly staff, female pilot!!"
Cons: "It was freezing and blankets were not available. It is typically cold on flights but this felt like sitting in a freezer. That is the o not reason I gave 4 stars and a 3 star for comfort"
Pros: "Crew was fine and meal service was decent"
Cons: "Stood on the jetway for 30 minutes due to some issue with boarding. Aircraft was tiny, not enough bathrooms for such a long flight. Dirty bathrooms and long lines."
Pros: "Flight attendant"
Cons: "Delays Was told my ticket had been canceled"
Pros: "Flight was great. Landed a few mins early"
Cons: "Not much selection of snacks. No tv"
Pros: "Each person having their own screen for movies and Tv is great! Food good/ too much but spaced apart very well...overall excellent service"
Cons: "Being pulled aside prior to boarding because we did I not have a sticker on our passports... otherwise boarding was excellent!"
Cons: "Entertainment screen did not work which affected 6 passengers, rows 34 and 35. Flight attendants kept saying there was nothing they could do. They didn't return to give us an update. We had to ask three times to different attendants."
Pros: "My flight had a really tight connection at London Heathrow. Then my flight from Vienna arrived 10 minutes late which made it even worse. A very nice BA agent met me as I deplaned at London Heathrow and ran with me thru Terminal 3. Helped me clear security with a priority card and ran to my gate with 2 minutes to spare. The women was really nice and if it was not for her I am sure I would not have made my connection. I don't know if there is anyway to track her down and thank her but I would like to do so. The flight attendants were OK but not excessively helpful."
Cons: "Having to reclear security. I understand the necessity though. The touch screens for the inflight entertainment did not work well. Food was Mediocre at best."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "Plane is dated and a little crowded"
Pros: "There was a lot of extra room on the flight so it was comfortable. The meals were tasty. I was glad they gave us a few snacks in addition to the main meal and the dinner snack with the tart and the sponge taper very good."
Cons: "The monitors were very difficult to use. I had to press them multiple times to change the screen"
Pros: "My wife and liked the food selection during both flights. We also liked how one of five flight attendants actually seemed to enjoy their job. And also how that one flight attendant made sure we were taken care of."
Cons: "Initially upon arriving in phili, my wife and I boarded the plane and I walked on the plane first than immediately my wife was asked by a flight attendant if she was supposed to be on the flight without any explanation at all, it was weird and disheartening. Also other than one flight attendant actually seemed to enjoy what they were doing, and I am a big customer service man, and some of the attendants didn't seem to care AT ALL at many points, very disappointed. Also he plane that we took out of the United States to go to Ireland was very small, and the plane to return us to the states was very small as well. The flight from our connection in phili to go to Charlotte was the biggest plane we had, just for a two hour ride.. really disaipointsd with American Airlines."
Pros: "The flight was on time, I like the assigned seat, and the service was pleasant."
Pros: "The actual flight was fine, no surprises. Food was better than average in Economy, crew was very attentive."
Cons: "This was a code shared operation. Iberia issued my ticket but flight was operated by American Airlines. That made it difficult to reserve my seat in advance, and impossible (literally!) to reserve a special request meal. Online request wouldn't work so I called Iberia. They said they couldn't reserve the meal, I needed to call American. So I called American, they said they couldn't reserve the meal (even though the plane would be catered by their contracted food service-go figure THAT out!) and I should call the travel agent. Called the travel agent, who said I needed to call Iberia! Apparently no one could (or would) be responsible for my satisfaction. So the message here is: Beware the Code Share!"
Pros: "Nice crew on time pretty smooth flight"
Cons: "Middle seat"
