Cons: "Honestly nothing it was perfect"

Pros: "Flight and crew were wonderful. Perfectly smooth landing!"
Cons: "I really wonder about the boarding procedure... isn't "back to front" more efficient? What is this Comfort +, Main Cabin 1, Main Cabin 2, Basic thing? Is that supposed to make you feel better because you paid for a seat selection?!"

Cons: "Not really an experienced flyer. Overall the flight seemed good. No issues with airline or airport. Just don’t understand self-important people that feel compelled to push the overhead storage limits with their bags."

Pros: "They did get to reschedule me on both my flights, but lost my bag."

Pros: "Crew were caring and friendly... seemed sincere"
Cons: "My husband and I had reserved seats next to each other but then today they had been rearranged and we couldn’t sit together which was annoying and disappointing especially as this was a treat to just come to Charleston together ... this seems wrong when we have paid for tickets together"

Pros: "The gate agents were nice enough."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for an hour without information as to why we were delayed. We missed our connection in Atlanta, even though we arrived at the gate in time to see the gate agent shut the door while we were running and waving. We arrived at the gate 8 minutes before the flight departure time also. The flight attendant on the flight from Fayetteville just handed out water and cookies without asking what you wanted. She had coffee and snack mix but didn’t ask anyone, just handed them what they got. Overall I was very disappointed in the flight from Fayetteville, NC to Atlanta and with the gate agents at the Atlanta airport. I usually expect more from delta. They didn’t offer vouchers to make up for the missed connection or offer to pay for a hotel since the next flight out was the next morning."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Somehow they didn’t serve snacks and drinks, I’ve been being thirsty and hungry, at the last 30mns I felt like I wanna throw up. We landed around 30mns ago and now no gates ready for us to get out of here. Still waiting inside the plane."

Cons: "This flight was good"

Pros: "Very friendly gate attendants helped us fix the problem that our frequent flyer number had not been entered on the boarding pass. This may have been because of the booking co., Just Fly."

Pros: "Upgrade to ComfortPlus. Movie."

Cons: "delayed flight"

Cons: "could be cheaper"

Pros: "Cody was such a great flight attendant. We weren’t seated with our kids and he helped us switch seats. He was so help and just sincerely nice. Really great person to represent your brand."

Pros: "The plane, the seating, and the service was outstanding, great entertainment setup with the movies."

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Did not appreciate Aeromexico/Delta changing my flight times after I booked, giving me a more than 7 hour layover."

Pros: "Good in general."

Cons: "My registered luggage was sent LAX->MDE and i had a short change in MEX. Running out of the LAX->MEX plane, the crew the said: "don't forget to pick up your luggage".. and then all went pairshaped. One member of MEX staff claimed the baggage is going directly to destination, another said that it won't and i need to pick it up myself and do god knows what with it. LAX->MEX flight delayed by 30mins, 1hr change time. Everybody relaxed just me loosing all my boozy contraband as i had no choice but to put my registered luggage thru security."

Pros: "Our flight attendants were lovely people specifically the first class attendant and he was humorous and witty, polite and friendly trying to make our christmas eve late night flight to be enjoyable."
Cons: "When we touched down in a blizzard we were told there was no jetway available and we had to climb down an icy ladder to walk probably 1000 feet on black ice barely seeing where we were going and at least one person fell and overall it was just very unprofessional and not the quality of service I expect from Delta."

Pros: "Arrived."
Cons: "Late, slow, de-icing in Detroit took nearly an hour!"

Pros: "I love and prefer most everything about Delta"
Cons: "Customer service outstanding, flight on time. Clean plane, but couldn't hear the captain announcements we were 30 minutes late arriving in Albany and our car rental office was closed!! We were there for my dads funeral didn't need that stress!!! That was terrible!!!"

Pros: "Crew was good. Flight was early."
Cons: "Poor booking experience."

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: "Cold on the plane/food needs more choice and improvement. Plane was late to arrive-over an hour later"

Pros: "Service was courteous and effective once aboard the airplane."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, and primarily due to the fault of the boarding staff in Frankfurt. I was flying as a tourist from Switzerland, but it was easy to notice the condescending manner in which the African passengers were treated. I noticed the same attitude at immigration services in Frankfurt, were the officers were openly teasing, laughing at and harassing an Eritrean man. Some of the comments passed were frankly disgusting..."

Pros: "The plane was nearly empty, so there was a lot of space to spread out. The entertainment options were almost limitless and the food was plentiful and tasty."
Cons: "Since it was an overnight flight, I planned on sleeping, however, it seemed the flight attendants were coming through all the time. While I appreciated dinner and breakfast, it really wasn't necessary for that time of day and the length of flight. I also tried to upgrade and even though the premium economy clear was almost empty, they did not accept my bid. I would have understood if the flight was full but it wasn't. I'm not sure why they wouldn't want the extra money from me?"

Pros: "Very polite and patient staff. They are getting professional. The food is great for airline food. Very comfortable. But the movie touch screens need improvement."
Cons: "Touch screens need improvement."

Pros: "Good attitude"

Pros: "Everything overall"
Cons: "Slight delay"

Pros: "Hot and cold drinks offered welcomingly"
Cons: "The cabin needs better climatization (air conditioning). It was unacceptably hot at the very beginning, immediately after boarding the flight"

Cons: "Too crowded seats were very close"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Xxxxxxx"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and crew super friendly"
Cons: "Choice of food and entertainment could have been better"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Boarding procedure: well organized Crew: very polite and supportive Seat comfort: good Extra bottles of water very good idea Selection of magazines: good"
Cons: "Blankets too small, material only mediocre Food: rather mediocre (not very tasty); limited choices; poor quality Entertainment: audio and video selection needs to be improved; not was I was looking for; movies too old"

Pros: "Normal Flight, short, was coming from Munchen"

Cons: "Being put in a distanced place for boarding"

Pros: "Planes were new. Delayed flights but caught up by staff."
Cons: "Food was terrible. Check in process chaotic. Service was fair."

Cons: "bad weather, not your fault"

Pros: "Flight was on time, crew was helpful"
Cons: "Blasting speakers for announcements, should have served a quick drink"

Cons: "The business class seats is exactly like the economy seats"

Cons: "Frankfurt airport chaos Lyon customs downstairs in arrivals checkin upstairs so they can't view your items if you are claiming tax back. Clever French move. Obviously happens a lot"

Pros: "The airlines gives the best flights possible."

Pros: "The food and beverage options are always good when flying international. Having the restrooms located below the passenger deck is definitely an improvement when considering overall traveling comfort, specifically for the people that are seated next to the restrooms."
Cons: "There are way too many announcements that interrupt the viewing and listening of entertainment. In lieu of announcing redundant information about customs, the weather, arrival time, safety, etc., why not offer that as information that can be provided on the screen and in the primary language of the listener so everyone isn't forced to listen to the same lengthy message twice? I'm sure the Lufthansa Customer Service Dept. has and is considering other alternatives, I'm just reiterating the obvious."

Pros: "Short flight Ease of checking in Meal provided"
Cons: "Time of flight changed by two hours earlier w/o being notified No entertainment Flight delayed due to passenger"

Pros: "excellent seats, service, food, entertainment."

Cons: "The quality of food was pitiful, not to say gross, in the economy class. I'm comparing Lufthansa to other European airlines and to what Lufthansa used to be. Alcohol was of the most basic quality. Yes, I know, it was economy class, but it's gone down. Entertainment was hardly better. No new movies and the variety of what was available was poor. Lastly, the choice of seats in the tail (of 747-8) was poor judgment on my part. We were being wagged like fleas on the dog's tail. The only good part was that due to the narrowing of the plane we had two seats and no neighbor to jump over, plus extra room between the window seat and the window. The end of highlights. Can't help but compare every airline to Turkish airlines, where even in the economy class they make you feel like royalty. These people know how to do hospitality and make you want to come to their country."

Pros: "Lufthansa is the airline for long-distance travel!"
Cons: "Everything was great. On our flight over the pond, and back, the food was great it was comfortable, and the airplane had the best in technology."

Pros: "I liked the in flight movies"
Cons: "Can't say there was anything I didn't."

Pros: "Crew passed out drinks and food as passengers requested. Very very courteous and extremely caring. Airport, boarding, and everything else went flawlessly."
Cons: "I don't know whether it was the airplane or the seats, but something was squeaking for the entirety of the two hour flight"

Pros: "Crew inside the plane was lovely."
Cons: "The crew woman that assist us in Barcelona Airport counters for the check-in was really rude asking very personal question that I still don't understand why and questioning our passports without any reason. My partner and I felt very uncomfortable and that was a totally unnecessary situation. After that everything was totally great during the flight."

Pros: "Again, excellent customer service. Can't say enough."

Cons: "It was late, we had connection to Berlin and we were in a hurry And forgot things on the plain. They didn't make arrangements to help us be on time for our connection. We had to run. My name is Dan Chevion. Can we get back the items we forgot on the plain?"

"They just let people fly without properly using the required mask"

Pros: "The crew is nice"
Cons: "No respect of distancing the seats ; all the seats were occupied. No wifi"

Cons: "Boarding was a disaster as my companion was selected for random search which held us up as there was no urgency to process us. Then there was no sign for where we should go since upper deck on 747 so we went in "economy" line as indicated on ticket and then was sent to correct line when we got to the front, wasting more time. The seatrs were the most uncomfortable I have ever beeon on for a long flight. I also paid extra to be in the exit row, to have people constantly congregating in front of us.The food was also mediocre."

Pros: "The rest area"
Cons: "The airport was cold and it should be warmer"

Pros: "Perfectly on time, no hassle, seat OK. This is the way I appreciate a flight."
Cons: "Food. No choice, three "madeleine" (sweet) cookies for all, no sugar-free (salty) alternative..."

Pros: "The bread was fresh and food better than other times"
Cons: "Crew is always aggressive and unfriendly"

Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Awoke to find ill man laying on floor in aisle next to me with oxygen. Shortly after... Passenger in seat near man on floor (diabetic but no one tells us anything) needs to lay across four seats with oxygen for heart issues for remainder of trip with staff and doctor on board nearby. Nevdr informed what was happening, never offered to move our seats or move iIl passengers. Glad all turned out ok. Could have given them more privacy and better informed other passengers."

Pros: "Not much, seats are super uncomfortable"
Cons: "Better code sharing with KLM"

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "Both flights through Detroit were re-routed, our luggage was lost for 4 days."

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."

Pros: "Entertainment system failed repeatedly."
Cons: "Entertainment system failed repeatedly."

Pros: "I'm not Hindu, but I requested Hindu Vegetarian meal. It was very tasty and enjoyable."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable, even in Comfort + seating isle."

Pros: "The new movies selection, food was very good, staff more friendly than previous flights"
Cons: "Boarding always a problem on MEA we have to wait too long in the queue"

Pros: "cbvghjkl;"
Cons: "mmmm"

Cons: "Lost my luggage."

Cons: "If you have to change planes and Paris is your middle person. Leave at least 2-3 in between the two flights otherwise you might not make it."

Pros: "The gate reps from CDG to MSP were professionals. The cabin crew on the Delta flight were exceptional! This was not my experience in Copenhagen with the Air France staff, they seemed to be self centered and rude."
Cons: "Delta please make excellence a priority in all areas of customer service. Set high standards for staff so customers know that you appreciate them and are ready for business. The world is at the customer's fingertips, let their first choice be Delta. When their are bad days, customers will understand"

Pros: "The transfer times were excellent"

Pros: "Nice staff. Flight on time."
Cons: "Bus to plane. Long walk to terminal upon arrival. Long Liong customs line?!!??"

Pros: "The crew was helpful and accommodating"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, missed connection, and lost baggage. Subpar."

Pros: "Food was ok."
Cons: "Very little room in economy class. For a 6'1" person, it's impossible to get comfortable."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by at least an hour leaving Paris - a regular situation I experienced with AF."

Cons: "I didn't get to board, ended up spending $2,400.00 over and above the $980.00 that I spent booking the initial ticket. I was not informed when I booked the ticket that when you transit through 2 schengen countries, you need a transit document. I was informed about it at then airport. Not only did I miss my flight, I had to book for the next day at a outrageous price. SUPER BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE...BOTH KAYAK and PRICELINE. Will never recommend you guys to anyone."

Pros: "Good selection of movies"

Pros: "Not much but the staff"
Cons: "No room, boarding was slow, zero bag or legroom"

Pros: "The food, beverages and choices of movies, entertainment There was a medical emergency that caused the flight to land in Canada. This was handled very professionally - I hope the passenger ended up getting the care needed and is doing well."

Pros: "25 min ahead schedule!!!"
Cons: "Cabin space, too narrow rows."

Pros: "Modern aircraft with power, big screens etc"
Cons: "Teenage crew, poor service (not even water brought on request, all "self service" at back of flight, and not being allowed a second drink with dinner), poor language skills (crew not very helpful when 2 hour delay meant I could miss connecting flight, suggesting I "walk fast")."

Pros: "Enjoyed my food, especially tasty for airplan fare!"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"

Pros: "Late leaving - no reason or apology. A bumpy flight all flight. Food almoat inedible. Seat gave bum axhe after 45 minutes. Staff friendly, but they dropped my meal"
Cons: "Nothing to like"

Pros: "Yelling, cheering and literally rolling in the aisle made for a really annoying flight"
Cons: "Infusions bad behavior. Also, flight number was changed and AF. Was understaffed to handle questions on squirrelly luggage check."

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: "Nothing particular"
Cons: "Nothing particular"

Pros: "Todo muy bien Volvería a viajar con ellos."

Pros: "Although we departed late from Paris, it arrived on time to Mexico City. Most of the stewardess very professional and kind."
Cons: "Although we traveled in Business, all business cabins were full of children, tired crying, walking around. My suggestion to AIR France would be that the small cabin of business were assigned to adults only. Regarding food, some options were not available when our turn came."

Pros: "Seat comfort in business class Professional and friendly crew"
Cons: "Food not tasty Limited entertainment even in business class (such small and old screen style) Newspapers available to be much more diversified When is the WiFi going to be available?"

Pros: "Chicako Párizs szuper , udvarias személyzet pontos érkezés."
Cons: "."

Pros: "The fact that the plane made it to SFO"
Cons: "Downgrade without notice or consent separating family. Paid full fare for family to travel business class together. AF without our knowledge downgraded one member, separating a mother from her 3 year old daughter. They offered no compensation, no apology, and CDG ground crew was terribly rude. All anyone said was, nothing to be done, now please Leave"

Pros: "The service and food were excellent plane was clean."
Cons: "No entertainment system"

Pros: "Our flight attendant and fnally making it home!"
Cons: "Disorganized uninformed staff. One says I have to have an additional "random" security check after going through the same thing in security. Turns out it wasn't random and I didn't need it. Both times they read my boarding pass wrong thought I was going to Tel Aviv - not random. Airport was hot as hell! Flight kept getting delayed then we had a gate change as well. Finally got on the plane and it took forever to take off so we were basically sitting in a sauna for 30+ minutes."

Pros: "I like service of AF"

Cons: "It was all good, only in comparison with Turkish airlines and etihad it is not at par."

Pros: "Excellent choice of movies. Great service. Friendly crew."
Cons: "I requested a lacto-ovo vegetarian meal, which I received. However, it appears the meal was also vegan. Normally, that would be okay except one of the two standard meal choices was also vegetarian and seemed much better. Since I had selected lacto-ovo vegetarian, it seems I was not allowed to select the standard vegetarian option. Hard not to have cheese on an Air France flight - just saying :-)"

Pros: "Efficient boarding. Interesting hot food. Entertainment variety very good."
Cons: "Business class seats hard. Did not flatten out for sleep."

Cons: "Left a little late for no apparent reason."

Pros: "Although plane was full staff moved us through quickly"

Pros: "Boarding was fast and efficient. Flight attendant staff were friendly and very courteous."
Cons: "Vegetarian food choices are too limited. Snack and beverage availability on long flights like this are too few and far between."

Cons: "Exiting passengers from the rear exposed the entire flight as people had to walk past those seated from the back to front. Great social distancing and we'll done British Airways"

Pros: "No and no."
Cons: "Very crowded in.club class. Way lower standard for business class as compared to the other airlines."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and everything was perfectly on time!"

Cons: "4 hs delay"

Pros: "The flight was on time and landed early"
Cons: "The bags could have come out earlier and the food could be better"

Cons: "I made a mistake in my daughter's surname while booking online, BA refused ro change it at check-in and forced me to buy a new ticket for her."

Pros: "Leg room fantastic"

Pros: "The crew were very attentive and there was a large variety of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "I am not a heavy set guy but the seats were unreasonably close to each other, this meant that when you eat a meal your elbows push into your sides making it hard to bring food to your mouth."

Cons: "Direct flights to and from South Africa to USA not via Middle East"

Cons: "Very narrow seats"

Pros: "The crew, the food and the smooth journey."

Cons: "Seating is a big problem. I am only 192 cm tall and cannot really fit my legs into the space. Have them out in the corridor"

Pros: "Easy on boarding"
Cons: "Staff were reluctant to serve us extra drinks. Asked for 2 miniature bottles of wine as they are so small. Told that customers were only allowed one. Bought some later though although the staff weren’t keen"

Pros: "That the flight was on time."
Cons: "not applicable."

Cons: "Seat was broken. Reclines without requesting. Tray also needs attention. Seat 15C"

Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "Nothing. Pretty good for a short trip."

Cons: "Better business class seats"

Cons: "Delayed, twice!"

Pros: "Service"

Pros: "New Years flight... very special. Great staff and grear entertainment on board"
Cons: "The flight data was not showing... could have been interesting especially on a New Years flight"

Pros: "This was a charter by BA. Airbus A320 with amazing legroom. Was slightly annoyed by them not having coffee ( to wake me up for the drive home) but I suppose I get why they weren’t serving hot beverages."
Cons: "The beverages thing above."

Cons: "Don’t like the business class seating configuration. The entertainment system played up and only worked in half the cabin. They tried to fix it without success"

Pros: "The A380 is roomy with large overhead bins. Its quiet and smooth. Flight was on time!!"
Cons: "It was impossible to select a seat in advance. I could not even get to seat selection at online checkin. It was very frustrating. When I went to BA in London and Los Angeles they said it was responsibility of AA and when I went to AA in London & Los Angeles they referred me back to BA. Why can I not choose seats like on other airlines????"

Pros: "None"
Cons: "Flight attendance"

Pros: "BA in South Africa run a clean efficient airline. Planes are new crew well trained and food is good."
Cons: "Preseating totally random no matter your status. Booked state of my choice well in advance and was presented at the back of the plane on check-in"

Pros: "I liked that we landed 30 minutes in advance for both flights to and back, compared to the other parallel flight via SAA which was delayed 2 hours when we arrived back."
Cons: "I didn't like the cheese roll I asked for as the whole roll and cheese was literally stuck to the bottom and parts of the bottom of the roll were mushy. The staff were professional but lacked personality and seemed a little hollow."

Pros: "I liked the seats that I got. Staff were friendly and it was a comfortable flight overall."
Cons: "There wasn't enough drinks (water etc) coming around after meals."

Pros: "The plane was updated. But did not have outlets on coach for charging a laptop. It did have USB ports and a lot of movies and entertainment. Also had good food."
Cons: "No charging outlets in economy class."

Pros: "Food was tasty"
Cons: "Was delayed"

Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding."
Cons: "The way that the crew (both in economy on right of plane) spoke to, and handled sensitive situations with several of the passengers in a loud and rather rude manner. This is not the British way that I have been accustomed to on previous BA flights, and is rather upsetting. The crew were very abrupt in general, and did not have that seasoned and polite demeanor which I expect from BA."

Pros: "i got there alive."
Cons: "narrow seats, no legroom, small entertainment screens, OK food (but they are British, so not much expectation), then no gangway off the plane, we had to wait a long time for the stairs, then everyone down the stairs onto a bus. staff was friendly enough, but once they fed us and one round of drinks, they were gone until they rushed us thru breakfast (no coffee refills). good thing the flight was cheap!"

Pros: "BA moved me on to the Kulula flight without any fuss and gave me a meal voucher."
Cons: "I got to the airport to find that my 19:15 flight had been delayed to 22:15. I hadn't received any notification from BA and still do not know the reason for the delay. The only other option available was for BA to put us on the 20:20 Kulula flight to Lanseria and then shuttle us from Lanseria to OR Tambo. It really is not pleasant to get back home so late on a week night and not even be given any warning or any reason for the huge delay."

Pros: "Crew were excellent. Very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Boxes under the seat in front took up legroom (but it did ensure good entertainment options). Could have offered some more drinks."

Pros: "The staff was great, friendly, helpful and professional."
Cons: "I thought the food lacked imagination, was skimpy and too hot. I burned my mouth several times. I really do not like having to pay for a booked seat. I have special needs at my age and so booking early is how I typically make sure I can access the bathrooms easily without climbing over sleeping passengers. I picked flight for the price, but in the end I should have stuck with Delta, KLM and Air France and got the extra miles as with seat bookings and only one bag allowance, what I ended up paying did not make it worth it. Oh well, live and learn. Seats were tight, anyone bigger than me would have really struggled."

Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "My wife and I having to sit in separate seats when there were seats available next to each other. Being charged excess baggage when one suitcase was weigh under weight"

Pros: "All the normal stuff of flying domestic."
Cons: "The way that my brand new suitcase was damaged on the flight and BA just said that handles are excluded from bag damage. Thus, they can do what ever they want with your bag's handles, manhandle it and not take any responsibility. My suitcase was clearly damaged by the way it was handled since i booked it in till i received it again and they just said sorry...there is nothing we can do for you!!! Now that is is poor customer service."

Pros: "I have physical limitations and required assistance stowing overhead luggage and help getting out of seat. Crew were terrific. Wheelchair assistance also great. Travels on my own."

Pros: "Made up for time due to a big tail wind"
Cons: "Took off late and had to wait 45 minutes for luggage"

Pros: "Flight was on time,actually ahead of time."
Cons: "Aircon was not efficient. Very hot in the plane."

Pros: "The space on the A380 is nice, comfortable seats, and the crew was very considerate"
Cons: "No between meals drinks (like water, etc.) or snacks left out on this 11 hour flight. The seats are still a bit close together... for the comfort of a long legged man behind me, I was not really able to recline my chair at all."

Pros: "Aside from the typically narrow seats, the service included all the hallmarks of higher-tier service, such as hot towels, cloth napkins, a good meal, and so on. The crew was attentive, as well."

Pros: "Timely."
Cons: "The airplane was really old. The screens wouldn't start for a really long time. Very, very few options for movies and the screen and sound had terrible quality. Food was not really good."

Pros: "Staff was extremely friendly"
Cons: "Seats were too close and comfort was hard for the long flights. I wish premium economy was better explained to one world partners prior to booking so there would be access to better seats."

Cons: "$100 just to choose a seat ? $100 for a 2nd bag? A Kellogg's bar for breakfast? Shame on them."

Pros: "Strong tailwind brought us in 30mins ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Nothing. Was a smooth and friendly flight. Cabin crew were courteous and efficient."

Cons: "Took forever to serve cold drinks and food. Said we were going to have a short flight due to tail wind so they would not serve hot drinks. Mean while we landed at the expected time of arrival."

Pros: "Great food. Ground staff were very accommodating."
Cons: "Flight crew attitude. Cramped seating."

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: "Everything was good after we finally left."
Cons: "Due to mechanical issues, flight was canceled. Missed a day of our honeymoon as a result. Compensation offered as a result was unsatisfactory."

Pros: "Smooth flight, no hassles from start to finish. Arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "The seats could not have been any narrower. Vegetarian meal was ok."
