Pros: "Very friendly crew, good space in my seat, kept the plane dark and quiet for the overnight flight"

Cons: "The check-in process, leaving Bangkok and leaving Doha, was horrible. Why do I have to wait until 3 hours before my flight departs to check-in and get my boarding pass? This made for long lines and took about 2.5 hours to get a boarding pass in Bangkok"
Pros: "on my flight from bkk to Doha all the flight attendants were very helpful. One in particular with the name Mary Jane, was very helpful and she stood out among the rest. Thank you for your kindness and help when I couldn't eat some of the foods on board. Whom can I write an email to so that I can be sure that she gets noticed for her work? Thank you"

Pros: "Great personnels!!"
Cons: "Overall nothing but great Service!!"
Pros: "Good, newer wide body aircraft. Good service. No hassles, really. Would fly again. Overall good experience."
Cons: "Newest seating arrangement in 777 300 ER just too crammed. Used to be better. Nothing special about this flight, was expecting a little more space, a little less crowded, a bit better service. But my flight was short hop from BKK to HAN, last leg of flight originating in Doha."
Pros: "Respect the scheduel and well organize."
Cons: "The seats are terrible."
Pros: "The flight crew was polite. The plane was clean and comfortable. The food was well timed and delicious. They explained everything in full, and were extremely apologetic when there was one short delay. All of my planes were for the most part well timed (we had one short delay)"
Pros: "Everything was great!!! Stewardess were very attentive and helpful. Food was good. Enjoyed the movies on plane. The comfort was excellent."
Cons: "Can't think of anything I didn't like but maybe that I wasn't in Business Class. Just joking!!!"

Cons: "The fact that our flight was cancelled without being notified. I will never make flight arrangements with them again!!!!!"
Pros: "- Efficient boarding and check-in - on time arrivals"
Cons: "- Food is not as good as in past years. No variety. - -- Attendants don't come around for second beverage (not talking about water distribution) - Planes are showing wear, USB plugs not working"
Pros: "Always heard middle eastern airlines where greats and Qatar didn't disappoint. The staff was amazing and the seats were comfortable and spacey considering it was economy. If I could do it again I would definitely fly with them again."
Cons: "Nothing really. Only thing would be you had to be pretty specific with the staff not be woken up because they ensured you were fed and hidrates (not necessarily a bad thing)"
Cons: "Not allowing water on the flight made it extremely long and unbearable."
Pros: "I don't like at all"
Cons: "Costumer service in Thailand was very bad and pool. Staff is so rude and looks down people."
Pros: "I was given great service by a Nadine in Detroit with JetBlue. She was very calm and helpful with me getting a baggage claim."
Cons: "My bag wasn't transferred to the next plane in Boston so I couldn't get my bags when I got off the plane. I wish someone would have told me because j waited in Detroit for about 1 hour for my bags without any mention of bags that didn't transfer."
Cons: "Seat is not comfortable at all."
Pros: "Customer Service was excellent. Very roomie, and comfortable. Plane was also very neat and clean. They also had all of the latest movies and other entertainment. I will for sure fly with them again."
Pros: "I just flew from Bangkok to Miami, with a connection in Doha. The roundtrip ticket was about the weirdest one listed (less than $1000USD). For the price, it was a really good flight. The flight attendants were really nice. The seats were comfortable, food was more than decent, and there was a good entertainment system."
Cons: "Earlier in the year I flew a similar flight for a similar price on Emirates. Emirates I liked more for one reason in particular. Emirates had one attendant whose job was solely to clean the bathroom. I don't know about you, but I love the idea of a constantly cleaned bathroom on such a long flight. Qatar didn't have this."
Pros: "Great service, smooth flight...on time departures and arrivals."
Cons: "Some of the touch screens weren't working"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "not the cleanest seat/tray table"
Pros: "The food was exceptional! I’d order it again at a restaurant if I could!"
Cons: "Still normal awkward/tight economy seat. It’s to be expected but the coat hook and free slippers make it better than a lot of other airlines."
Cons: "Longest boarding process I’ve ever experienced. Stuck on the ramp for 10-15 mins. Before they allowed general boarding for the second flight in a row, they announced no overhead storage space was left available and forced everyone to check bags at the gate."
Pros: "Professional crew, Good service , comfortable seating, fine entertainment."
Cons: "First time traveling abroad, it was a unique experience and a learning one."
Pros: "Good crew and amazing always ask if anything I needed."
Cons: "Had issues with specials meals requests. Was unable to get what was requested told both on originating flight, and returning light that its had not been loaded but the request wasn't there.."
Pros: "Delta refused to let us reserve a bassinet seat, and kept telling us to ask them later. They ultimately were not able to to provide one. They were the least accommodating of all the airlines we have asked."
Cons: "Better customer service."
Pros: "No problems. Service was great and we got there slightly faster than anticipated"
Cons: "Flight duration but that’s impossible to change so other than that nothing :)"
Pros: "Excellent crew and clean aircraft"
Pros: "Seat comfortable and amazing crew"
Cons: "Choice of movies somewhat limited"
Pros: "Boarding: c'mon...too many groups and subgroups. Radiculous!"
Cons: "STOP the non-sense of so many boarding goups. What happened to Common Sense boarding? Ill and needing add'l medical help, First Class, Plus Class, then General Boarding. Give me a Break with all the other subgoups for Delta, all B. S. !!"
Pros: "Nice to have more room in the premium economy section."
Cons: "Not even a smile from the crew and no help when asked. I don't expect Asian-style grace and class from an American airline, but I do expect good old-fashioned American friendliness, and there wasn't even that. Also hate the all-darkened cabin in the daytime."
Pros: "Delta Premium Economy (or whatever it's called) is definitely a step up. Food is pretty good and seats leave more room, so you don't feel crunched."
Cons: "First seat (no chance to put thngs underneath seat in front) MUST have a real space (as even economy generally has). There was a small pouch that would fit almost nothing. Staff was poor. Never a smile or friendliness from flight attendant and no help when asked."
Pros: "Nothing. Delta cancelled the flight with no explanation, and ruined our last day in Omaha."
Cons: "An explanation as to why the flight was cancelled, as well as help with finding alternative accommodation. We had to fly back very early via Atlanta, and spent the day in transit, which forced us to cancel a reservation in Omaha and erased our ability to enjoy the final day of activities there."
Pros: "Not crews fault that DELTA changed my flight at last minute!"
Cons: "Yes...not change my flight at the last minute and causing me to miss my connecting flight. Then making me reschedule my flight with only options that I now have (2) layover and then arrive in Korea another day later, that then caused me to miss my college orientation day!"
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "The food was amazing. The entertainment system was fantastic. The crew was lovely."
Cons: "The small bathrooms"
Pros: "No food or entertainment on a short hop of ~ 150 miles by air; I would have preferred to rate “N/A” but this wasn’t an option."
Cons: "poor hospitality by cabin crews cabin crews are very stingy in providing drinks"
Pros: "The staff are great very nice pleasant"
Cons: "Wifi doesn't work for long time and have wait long periods to watch something. TV on head reat is nice"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Business class seats were short whdn lay flat. Metal footrest at the end made it uncomfortable to hang feet off the end. Little privacy"
Pros: "The flight attendants was very rude & keep harassing me about my emotional support dog, I was a real animal hater, the complaint is to long to list here, never experienced such a rude flight attendant in all my years of flying , I filed a official complaint with delta."
Pros: "Free movies available in-flight"
Cons: "temperature during flight. Freezing then hot, freezing then hot and never a comfortable temp. Food was terrible. Entrees were flavorless and smelled terrible. Time they served food made no sense at all either. Within the hour of getting on the plane, they served a meal which made no sense because most folks ate before getting on the plane. Stewardesses were not friendly (only 1 made me feel valued and welcomed)"
Pros: "Service was good. Was upgraded for more space."
Cons: "Intertainment unit was not working correctly. Locked up after movie was over. No offers of any sort from crew about issue."
Cons: "Delay was over an hour"
Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The check in and boarding process in Incheon was terrible! My flight ticket was printed and had the wrong name, which the agent at the check in desk did not catch. It was not until I went to the security line when they found a mismatched name. I was asked to go through security THREE TIMES. And then at the gate, I was supposedly "randomly selected" for ANOTHER swab/swipe security check. The flight itself was uncomfortable. There are not enough bathrooms for the number of people seated on the flight. The entertainment was the only excellent and recommendable thing about this delta flight."
Pros: "Boarding is about the only thing I liked."
Cons: "This was a 2 layover rebooking of a one layover flight, which was late (I would be missing my connection). I asked an Air France rep in Japan to assign me an exit row seat (it’s a 14 hrs flight and I am almost 6 ft tall). She showed me the plane diagram and picked a seat, but when I arrived it turned out I was in a row directly behind. WiFi did not worked and the flight attendant said “they could not do anything” My film was interrupted twice (with a random film drubbed in Korean) and had to be reset manually Food was not great (and menues are identical on all delta flights - this was my 5th delta flight in the course of one week), the snack in particular (leek and mushroom cream soup-like mass wrapped in a tortilla - who ever thought of this? And one of the flight attendants was aloof and snappy."
Pros: "Seats. Service. Timing"
Pros: "Great movie selection"
Cons: "All was great"
Cons: "I received a message flight would be early but it was actually late...luckily it did not affect my connection"
Pros: "Be nice if the first plane had worked. Almost one hour late leaving ATL."
Pros: "The food is delicious and there are healthy choices, the staff helped me put my carry on into the overhead bin, which was super helpful because I'm only 5ft tall"
Cons: "The entertainment selection was not that good. They had some new movies but nothing you could turn your brain off to. The selection on my second 50 minute flight with delta had more options and variety than my 14 hour korean air one..."
Pros: "We finally got home"
Pros: "Flight was on time. And faster. I really enjoyed it."
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "On time great baggage retrieval"
Cons: "The Delta team is a complete mess. After sending us to the wrong terminal via their own app, we missed our first flights. Then we had to be pushy to get onto the next flight."
Cons: "VERY bumpy ride- scary"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "The help desk personnel was friendly."
Cons: "Due to my first flight being late I missed my second flight. Delta booked me on a flight that was departing 5 hours later instead of the next flight. I had to go and ask to be was put on the stand by list for a sooner flight but not given any priority over the other standby's even though it was Delta's fault that my original flight was late."
Pros: "Not the wor st comfort,"
Cons: "Cannot even request seats before booarding, as they try to get us to pay more. The anxiety over separate seating for couples is not worth it."
Pros: "Flight Attendants!"
Cons: "When flight arrived late, the plane then required maintenance. After boarding, we were told the fuel vehicle was out of fuel. A small fuel truck was then called in, and it failed to operate. The Captain made a decision to deboard due to outside temperature with little air-conditioning...amd mid-deplaning...fueling was complete amd passengers were told to go back to seats. Flight Attendants were amazing throughout this incompetent ground crew ordeal.!!! Captain was Great as well...his effort kept all informed and sought the best possible outcome for his passengers!!!"
Pros: "Great service, polite staff"
Cons: "Incredibly tiny seats, even for my girlfriend, who is 5'6""
Pros: "Lots of seat space even in economy, I felt very comfortable and not cramped on my flight. Food was decent and flight attendants were very attentive. My flight was kind of an outlier experience as someone on my flight fell very ill and needed immediate medical attention. The KLM employees on board did a very good job of taking care of the situation and making sure everyone else on board still had a calm flight experience."
Cons: "My connecting flight was scheduled too close to my landing time."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Cabin air was very warm. Individual A/C fan was very slow. With it being a night flight, I was unable to read since my overhead light was not working."
Cons: "No westjet checkin area and no signage. Staff didn't know what was going on."
Cons: "I paid for the upgrade to Delta Comfort Plus for an aisle seat & for some reason they reassigned our seats and I got Putin a middle seat. It was not what I paid for and it was very uncomfortable. If people pay to upgrade to specific seats we should. It be reassigned to whatever seat they want to put us in."
Pros: "I like the notice given prior before I get to the airport on regard to a free carry-on check in. The staff was friendly and enthusiastic happy giving me the comfort of a nice travel journey. Thank you to all the staff!!!"
Cons: "Honestly nothing I was really happy with my flight!!!"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "More support"
Pros: "The crew was nice and efficient. There was no meal service because they had catering problems, but they tried to accommodate small children with candy cars and chips."
Cons: "There was no meal service because of catering problems. Though it was done for our safety (the crew mentioned some problems in prior flights), not having a back-up plan of sorts would be good for an airline of Lufthansa's stature."
Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "The infotainment system could be better. My system was not working for the first 3 hours and then the sound went out out completely after 2 hours of use. Also the airbus model still use the outdated 2 prone headphone and I was not able to use my noise canceling headphones."
Pros: "Space in cabin, friendly crew and nice food"
Cons: "Shorter stoppage ;)"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, we had blankets and pillows and that was super comfortable."
Pros: "Quick and easy flight decent cold sandwiches."
Pros: "Plane was comfortable, ample, with plenty of room, departed and arrived sharp in time"
Cons: "Boarding process was a mess, no one respected nor enforced priority boarding, they call for business and preferred access boarding and everyone rushed, and the airline agents just started to accept all people"
Pros: "Online check in, easy to board. Flight was on time."
Cons: "I wish there was a vegan option for the food/snack onboard."
Pros: "Staff, especially male steward was very professional and dedicated. Bravo for the effort for the boy."
Pros: "The whole trip went smoothly. The price was right. There was a very bad storm in Charlotte before departure. Lufthansa made a delay, and I was very happy about that decision. They were very informative about connections, and emailed important information. Friendly, competent staff!"
Cons: "The TV sound didn’t work too well. Excellent staff Ms Maria Was very gracious."
Cons: "I have been transatlantic for forty years on various carriers. Without a doubt this was my worst flying experience ever."
Cons: "I was transferring from an international flight and was not able to check 8n online, thus I didn’t get to choose my seat. I ended up squeezed in a middle seat next to a man who was served a lot of alcohol and took up more than his share of room."
Pros: "In this day of continuous service cutbacks Lufthansa has managed to keep amenities that make long flights bearable. The boarding was early and efficient. Meals were decent and plentiful. Hot hand wipes were provided. Hundreds of video entertainment options and fairly friendly English speaking flight attendants. I recommend paying the small upcharge to choose seats with extra legroom. totally worth it on the long haul"
Cons: "Be there early. They board early"
Pros: "Water and juice served all the time"
Cons: "professionalist from the whole crew"
Pros: "Upgraded seats from PHL to FRA, which was great. Had a lot of legroom. Very nice staff, comfortable flight"
Cons: "Very small legroom from Frankfurt to Budapest. When you are 5’11 it’s hard to fly . The prices i have to pay all the time to upgrade only because I am tall is out of control. It adds hundreds to my flight cost when the prices are already high."
Cons: "Was assigned worst seat on plane. Engine vibration on seat back"
Pros: "Excellent flight attendant in charge of us."
Cons: "The galley where the snacks were looked more like a very dirty restaurant kitchen. It was absolutely gross with dirty forks, dirty glasses, overall grimy and dirty."
Pros: "That was the most comfortable flight I have ever had. Famous German standards of excellence. Everything was just as it's supposed to be. Punctuality, politeness, order - just perfection. Thank you for such a great treatment!"
Pros: "The entire crew was very professional and friendly, and I could tell that each one of them really liked their job. I am a seasoned traveler and have flown in the past on every major and minor airline, and I have to rate my flight LH424 from Munich to Boston as one of the best."
Cons: "I cannot think of a thing that I did not like."
Pros: "Luftahnsa is great. I can’t seem to get our system to recognize the two Condor is abysmal"
Pros: "The same"
Cons: "Nothing to be mentioned everything was good"
Cons: "HEAVY PASTA DISH."
Pros: "During this flight, the attendants were suprisingly kind."
Cons: "Entertainment was just too poor(movie selection was just counted numbers.) the seat comfort was one of the ugliest, I think. even though they prepared many of premium seats, still once you compare with other airlines, it is far below than the average I think."
Cons: "Charges for suitcase 40 euros this rediculas"
Pros: "Attendants were impressive. kind and so willing to serve."
Cons: "Entertainment was horrible. Those movies were not the best selection but the poorest selection as the cheapest probably."
Pros: "Quick flight and very comfortable."
Cons: "For a transatlantic flight, boarding was one mass stampede, seats were hard as a rock, tight, media "touch" screen had to be punched to work, worst selection of entertainment film & TV show options I can remember for an overseas flight"
Pros: "Smooth flight. No delay, no unpleasant surprise."
Pros: "Fell aslep right after takeoff"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "Perfect flight..."
Pros: "Excellent steward."
Pros: "Our first flight was late. We were met at the gate immediately after landing and were brought individually and directly to our next flight behind the scene, including passport control. Excellent."
Cons: "I had booked both flights at least 9 month in advance. Was not given a choice of seats for the short flight. In the past that has not been an issue. This time the four of us, including 2 children, were seated in the back of the plane separate from each other. Not cool."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Food was tasteless"
Pros: "The crew was very assertive, plenty of snacks and drinks, good food. Flight went on smooth and the captain lender splendidly. Seats were comfortable with plenty of leg space, entertainment had numerous choices. Would recommend to friends."
Cons: "Everything's was fine"
Cons: "Because of a family illness I had to reschedule my flight 2 weeks before. Because the flight was booked through a secondary company, rebooking the outgoing flight ended upp: a) costing me as much as the whole original return flight; b) was no longer a 1 stop flight as I also had to stop in Frankfurt plus the company would not allow me to choose directly, I sent them details and then they booked what they could find; and c) I lost both the outgoing flight ( which was charged) and the return flight ( which was not changed) premium seat bookings both of which I had to pay for a second time. If I had booked directly with the airline this would have cost a transfer fee and I would not have lost the premium seat bookings. This was therefore a great expense and inconvenience. I will no longer book flights indirectly when using kayak. In future I will search using google flights and then go straight to the airline sites to book. Very disappointed. I never had this problem when booking with kayak before"
Pros: "Efficiency...I sat three rows behind the crying babies...but with ear phones...had a pleasant flight"
Cons: "Once again - the connecting flights through Frankfurt are difficult because of the size of the airport and the location of the gates. Make certain there is enough time between flights to get to new gate. Use extra time to purchase some of the excellent food items"
Pros: "The food and drink were good. The crew very polite and professional."
Cons: "The boarding process was a bit chaotic."
Pros: "the magazine selection prior to flight, bottle of water in front of each seat and crew were great, the pilot's landing was amazing! The seat in front of me had weird legs that made the room under the seat smaller than other seats around me. So you couldn't fit in the carryon fully under it as you could under the seat diagonally from me, however, this ended up being a huge plus since I could use the legs of this chair in front of me as stepping places to place my feet during flight. Since airline does not provide foot rest, it was great to have this to elevate the feet for a long flight. More considerations should be give to provide footrest or at least these kind of foot elevations."
Cons: "The dinner and breakfast were a bit disappointing, but not bad and not a deal breaker at all since the rest of the flight was wonderful. I noted comfort as ok, but that's applies to all airlines - the seats in economy and no footrest is very uncomfortable, but that's on all economy flights, so no deduction of points there. I do want to note that I needed a boarding pass at the gate and stood in line for quite a while (I was first in line) before I was even acknowledged by a lady who ended up helping me eventually. But she was so cranky! (there were 2 ladies - one busy helping the crew and putting around barrier - she was fine, the other with a head covering (putting this hear just to distinguish the ladies as one was doing a great job)- not sure what she was doing, but she plainly ignored me standing at the desk in front of her, I didn't say anything, just patiently waited until she acknowledged me, and then she printed the boarding pass for me, but she was way to cranky to be in the job that she is in - no need for that kind of attitude."
Pros: "I'm even still here i miss it my flight i have told they are going put me to another flight but I have not received any call yet from"
Cons: "I'm still waiting"
Pros: "The food and the entertainment were excellent, staff also worked very well, and the airplane appeared well cleaned and maintained"
Cons: "The economy seats are too close to each other to be comfortable for extended periods of time (back to front ways - side space is reasonable)."
Cons: "Flight was canceled, no information given, no compensation offered. Next day took the same flight. Bad food, uncomfortable seats, and this was in business class. All around Lufthansa is like a US airline. No thanks."
Pros: "terrible earphone, could listen only on one ear."
Pros: "This flight was 11 hours and I could have lasted another 2 or so hours."
Cons: "The lady who checks paperwork for animals at the front desk with Luftansa Airlines was uninformed and didn't know what she was doing as well as unnessarily rude. MY large dog was on this flight and after several employees had looked over my forms for him she came out nowhere and threatened to not allow my dog on board due to faulty and incomplete paperwork! I instantly went into a nervous condition of the sweats and scrambled to prove her wrong. When I asked again what was wrong with my (actually legitame paperwork) she just told me that at this point it didn't matter and that she would allow me to fly even though I was at risk of quarantine aty destination. I wasn't happy about this and asked again why there seemed to be an issue and she was unhelpful, handed me a business card for the USDA and told me that I was lucky to get away with her travel mercies for my dog. I had visited a USDA certified veterinarian and she hadn't given me the opportunity to prove this. I was confused and annoyed and while the other employees could see this about me, they apologized on her behalf. I really wish I had gotten this woman's name and work station so I could follow up with her and inform her on a few things. Other than that I love working with and flying Lufthansa airlines!"
Pros: "Comfortable seat, good entertainment"
Pros: "Great entertainment options"
Cons: "Did they really have to collect headsets a full 30 minutes before we landed? I was right in the middle of a movie. Next time I'll just hide it."
Pros: "Short swift flight"
Cons: "The way the plane was boarded took a long time for such a small flight"
Cons: "How come I always have a beautiful and talented flight attendant? She was perfect!"
Cons: "Seats small"
Pros: "Crew was amazing!"
Cons: "Food was very nominal considering the 8 hour flight even for a small female like myself. One sandwich and chips and one serving of snacks. Also the temperature on the plane was extremely warm."
Cons: "No turbulence"
Pros: "Friendly crew, smooth flight and comfortable seats."
Pros: "entertainment, seat space (main cabin extra)"
Cons: "meal service more suitable for daily flight (breakfast first and lunch last)"
Pros: "The AA staff was incredibly nice to us. The facilities our check in at DCA that got us on faster and the staff at CLT very nicely got us on to an earlier flight. They were awesome!"
Cons: "The entertainment options are great but the interface is annoying and difficult to use. -connecting to the WiFi was wonky -working between the apps and browser page was annoying -rewind/fast forward controls overly sensitive"
Cons: "This flight, along with the bulk of AA flights, were cancelled, leaving me stranded and missing work meetings."
Cons: "We made reservations on Premium economy which was overbooked so we did not get a seat assignment until reaching the gate. However they upgraded us to business class so we were delighted."
Pros: "Everything, The privacy of the seats, the friendliness of the crew and the amazing entertainment."
Cons: "Not sure. Everything was great! I love the cabin American long haul."
Pros: "Because American Air had to change a light bulb on the plane in Lisbon, which took a couple of hours, we barely made our connecting fligh. We ran from customers TSA to the other end of Philly airport."
Cons: "Another airline."
Pros: "Worst flight of my life"
Cons: "The crew was rude, the entertainment system was broken, there was 0 leg room, and it took hitting the call button 4 times to get water after beverage service (the second time they walked up, turned it off and walked away). I vowed to never fly American again after this flight."
Pros: "We sat in the rear of the plane and had all kinds of room. Just with the crew performed better"
Cons: "The crew seemed unfamiliar with the aircraft misdireting passengers to the wrong areas making the boarding process a complete mess"
Pros: "The exit row seat was clutch!! I couldn’t imagine sitting anywhere else!!"
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic. Not very much room at the gate and very disorganized."
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "The seat was tiny. It took forever. I hate you people."
Cons: "The plane was not full. I sat in row 32 with two people on either side of me. In the row in front of me there were no people in it. What’s up with that? We also sat on the tarmac at the time that we were supposed to be deplaning. We were waiting on another plane to back out of the gate for 10 minutes. What’s up with that?? American Airlines, get your act together!!!!!"
Cons: "A delay in take off"
Cons: "They forgot to plan a pilot....also the crew was 45 min late"
Pros: "One of their newst planes. Amazing! Loved it!"
Pros: "I would like that the seats were not so small I got 2 people with overweight and I was very uncomfortable the trip"
Cons: "in all the flight you did not have internet WiFi"
Pros: "Amazing flight..,......... Great service"
Pros: "Entertainment was good. Food was pretty decent considering it was gluten free. Wish there were more snacks on command kind of thing. I got really hungry. The guy working at the madrid ticketing counter that helped me check in my bags. Super cool dude. Very easy to talk to. Spoke perfect English and spanish because he was raised in usa but his mom is from spain. He was very detailed in I was going to have to navigate both madrid and dallas airports."
Cons: "The VERY first American Airline lady I met at Madrid airport who was like the first greeter. I was looking at all the different posted signs to see where to go and she says “hola” and i say “hola” back. She asked me which class i was in i said whichever the normal one is. All while im inching my way towards where i seem to already to know where to go. The lady kind of snaps at me and says “stop excuse me im talking to you.” I wasnt really walking away from this lady, i was inching towards what seemed to be i needed to go(and in fact was where i needed to go). I am fully capable of listening and moving at the same time. I dont need to be scolded like 5 year old child because she thinks I wasn’t listening to her. I was listening and progressing towards the place i need to be at the same time and also using two different languages in my head in order to talk to her. So that is just what i would call mulitasking for a person and not grounds for someone to use a parenting tactic on another adult at 730am."
Pros: "Flight was delayed slightly, but pilot made up most of the time in the air. Everyone was polite and flight was totally uneventful."
Cons: "Seat headrest was weird. Made flight slightly uncomfortable."
Pros: "The flights were on time and the staff was very friendly."
Pros: "Range of entertainment options, one crew member was terrific"
Cons: "Comfort of bed, some crew members snarky, old aircraft"
Pros: "Very nice and genuinely friendly flight attendants and ground personnel. Flight arrived early, perfect landing and take off."
Cons: "Kayak/webjet sent me the wrong check in code for the wrong airline operating my flight. I inserted it on the online form multiple times until I was blocked from doing so, and there was no link to communicate online in real time with anyone who could solve the problem. This was extremely stressful and unnecessary, as well as time consuming. It was not how I wanted to spend my final night in Italy. Furthermore, I had to wake up at 4 am to get a very early bus to the airport in order to check in early enough in person. NOT cool. The food was mediocre. The entertainment options were about the worst I've ever seen. My seat hardly went back at all."
Cons: "Start boarding with the last row, not the 1st row - so people settling into the 1st rows do not hold up the people trying to reach the higher numbered rows."
Cons: "Need to change up the videos accessable by WiFi."
Pros: "Free movies and tv"
Cons: "Equipment malfunction at 11 pm is always really nice."
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent"
Pros: "The staff that pushed us thru the ridiculous process of going thru customs , getting our bags checked again & raced us thru to our connecting fight was amazing !!!"
Cons: "Our connecting flight was too close given we were coming back from Mexico& had to go thru customs. The security at customs were so rude to my mother who was in a wheelchair! The customs checking process was a joke! We barely made to our flight running thru that entire airport pushing my mother in a wheelchair. I can't tell you how horrible the experience was for both of us!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed more times than I can count, we got a different reason each time. Weather I can understand, but telling us we are waiting on a specific crew to arrive and then announcing that crew is not for our flight was just terrible communication. No one seemed apologetic. The only thing they did was bring a snack cart over for us, and that got raided by children so many people didn't get anything. We had arranged transport from Orlando to Tampa for that evening, and our rides had to cancel because instead of 7pm we were now arriving at 130am. Your airline's mistakes put everyone at an inconvenience and we weren't offered assistance to fix it. My husband went to ask for help in arranging new transport home, but he couldn't even get to the front of the line. The customer service was terrible. We really enjoyed our first leg of the flight home with American Airlines, but after the second leg and all of the problems we had... we will not fly with American Airlines in the future."
Pros: "Great crew. Friendly and reaponsive. Easy boarding."
Cons: "4 hour flight from SFO to Charlotte. No food beyond snacks. No entertainemt options. No electrical outlets."
Cons: "We did not get on this flight because AA's scheduled it 90 minutes after landing from an Int'l flight. Why don't airlines schedule a minimum 3hours between Int'l-domestic connections. half the plane was stressing and freaking out about missing their connection even though the plane landed on time. "AA is not responsible for customs/security delays". Well, your customer service agents would have a lot less work if you didn't have to reschedule 100 people per flight. The time the plane drives/parks at the gate, you get off the plane and make it through customs, get your bag, recheck it (if need be, we didn't this time though), get through security and get to your gate, you'll be the luckiest person in the world to do that in less than 90 minutes."
Cons: "We boarded, sat on the plane for a while, backed up from the gate, then sat for a while longer. 3 hours later, we had to go back to the gate because we reached the legal limit they can hold us on the plane on the tarmac. Another hour and a half or so later, we finally took off for JFK. We missed our first connecting flight and the second connecting flight I was able to rebook."
Pros: "I loved not having to change planes."
Cons: "It was VERY cold on the plane."
Cons: "While Delta are stepping up their snack & refreshment options, American seems to be joining the downhill slide group. If you don't like dry pretzels... choose another airline. Also had that wonderful experience of learning after boarding that you need to have downloaded the app to be able to reach any entertainment options. And, nowhere to plug the device to keep it alive. I didn't realise that AA was competing with the budget airlines like Rouge now..."
Pros: "The associates at the terminal, who faced long delays and concerned and frustrated customers were patient and gracious. Following prescribed procedures they made announcements, apologized and provided snacks for the long delay."
Cons: "Having to wait for an extended time in the terminal. Delays turned my 10 hour journey into 24 hours."
Pros: "There was an air traffic back-up for a few minutes, and instead of just letting us sit there wondering what was going on, the pilot gave us periodic updates on what was happening, which made the process much easier. Also, the flight attendants were friendly, which makes a big difference."
Pros: "On time departures. Friendly crew."
Pros: "Poor service They had a severely overweight person sitting next to me. She was struggling putting on her seat belt for a few minutes. I was very uncomfortable in my seat. The flight attendant was walking around withh seat belt extenders ; why are you accommodating severely overweight customers at the expense of others?"
Pros: "Quick flight. but my row and some others behind us did not get beverage service. Never had that happen before."
Pros: "Service was very efficient and responsive. I was lucky to have an empty seat next to me!"
Cons: "Hate, hate, hate not having individual monitors for entertainment....especially considering that it's an international flight."
Pros: "Boarded on time and was easy"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Plane was clean; staff professional; no issues."
Cons: "Same as previous response."
Pros: "Everything was pretty decent.. Best part was the price.. Boarding was good staff was good"
Cons: "Wasn't enough room.. kind of tight.. Couple more inches all around would have been perfect though"
Cons: "The flight was operated by American Eagle, on a small regional commuter jet. We had to board from the tarmac and climb a steep flight of stairs to board. Not advisable for anyone with limited mobility."
