Because of this, it was stale and smelly. I'm not sure why the circulation on their plane was so poor but it really made the flight more difficult than it should have been. I thought it was a one time issue but it was also hot on the flight back as well."

Pros: "Plane was on-time, that was the only thing nice to say about this flight."
Cons: "First, I was charged $100 because my bag was 3 kilos over weight. Second the seats in Comfort Plus were old. The recline was weak and there were no foot rests. For a cheaper flight on American, the seats have those amenities making it easier to sleep. Plus the food was inedible."

Pros: "The gluten-free dinner was amazing. There was even gluten-free bread! Also, I always appreciate the free Wifi for messaging!! Also, despite there being a lot of turbulence, everyone did well. I prayed for safety and for the pilots and crew; the turbulence stopped after that and our arrival wasn't all that delayed."
Cons: "The gluten-free breakfast was extremely disappointing. Yogurt, a tiny cup of fruit, and veggie sticks??? What about a gluten-free English muffin with egg instead? The boarding was a little confusing. I was one of the last to board in my group because I couldn't see from where I was sitting - I thought priority was still boarding, but group 2 was already up. Also, please be more kind to baggage."

Pros: "On time, clean cabin, attentive and professional flight attendants, plenty of overhead storage."
Cons: "Nothing. No complaints."

Pros: "Good price, good boarding and arriving, friendly and quick crew, LOTS of fluids. Restrooms cleaned frequently!! Great legroom."

Pros: "Flight was on a 787! Great plane"
Cons: "Food was mediocre for an international long haul fight, and was served by a completely indifferent staff! My prearranged seat choices were switched to a no recline rows and rebooking after a unnecessarily missed connection became 7 step comedy of errors ,aside from quality aircraft this felt like a budget operation."

Pros: "I got off the flight at out side,but i forgot to carried my small bag .and then the Crew returned me the bag very soon.they were very kind,thank you very much."

Cons: "On the MSP to ATL leg the gate crew made a huge deal about checking rolling bags. They even stopped us at check-in and nearly begged us to check our bags pointing to the backed up jetway. But we had a lot of unpacking to do before checking our bags so we politely declined three times. On getting to our seats there were at least 8 open slots for bags near us. I heard a crew member call forward to say "tell them no more rollaboards" so they forced everyone left to check. On departure they slammed shut several very large empty overheads. WTF"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I did not board this flight as the previous one from Tokyo was late by an hour. Delta did not do ANYTHING to help us pass immigration and customs the fastest possible way. They sent us with the luggage to another terminal and had no signs or attendants to tell us where we recheck the bags. In the end we were late for the flight but Delta did not care!!! They tried putting me on a flight to SLC with a connection! Overall, I am VERY unhappy with them! Zero stars is what they deserve."

Pros: "On-time"
Cons: "No power outlets, back of the plane is really loud, overhead bins suck"

Cons: "Missed our connection due to a 30 flight delay because crew duty day and crew rest and had to rebook on a later flight on the same day. Downgraded from first class by the airline without any compensation."

Cons: "Only one service on such a long flight? Should have done a second beverage service."

Pros: "We had comfort class and it's very nice"
Cons: "Both Crews at airport and on flight aren't very friendly, I guess this is the nature of all American flight after seeing how customer being treated from the United incident"

Cons: "My original flight from IND to LGA was cancelled due to weather and I was rebooked for the next day. I was forced to spend a night in a hotel near the airport. Then my flight the next day kept being delayed, first 5 min, then 20, then 40, etc until 2.5 hrs. Since the delays kept increasing, I decided to rebook on another flight with a very tight connection in Detroit--the only other option. When my flight arrived, the other fight was already boarding and I ran to make it. Luckily I got to the gate in time, just before the door closed. The original flight ended up with a 3.5 hr delay!!! That is unacceptable."

Cons: "The flight was delayed for 13 hours, the airline (delta) made no effort whatsoever to remedy the adverse effects of this delay. They were even charging for snacks on the flight. A horrific experience throughout."

Cons: "Boarding took forever. Delta doesn't seem to have a good system. Plane was packed to the last seat. Congrats! No food for purchase. Will avoid next time."

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Slow in refuelling, got us delayed for 40-"

Cons: "Larger meals."

Pros: "The flight arrived a few minutes early."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."

Cons: "Didn’t happen."

Cons: "Boarding was confusing and disorganized"

Cons: "Actually the Welcome on board announcement. The part where they special welcome loyalty program members. I do not get that... I am an explorer holder my self, but really?? so other paying customers are not as welcome. This is leftovers from the older days.."

Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable, it was uncomfortably hot and there was not air conditioner vent above like most other airlines"

Cons: "Unaccompanied minor flying to Lisbon overnight. Bag was lost. No real effort to assist. Bags of unaccompanied minor should be treated with priority."

Cons: "Inexplicably, our preassigned seats were changed at checkin and we were put in bulkhead. This particular Boeing aircraft is pretty poorly designed. Especially the bulkhead in premium economy."

Cons: "OLD plane without comfort or entertainment"

Pros: "Eveything is well arranged"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Airline staff good and professional"
Cons: "Nothing one can do, for a 6.2" guy, the metal bar that forms the shape for the pouch for magazines and such digs into knees, ESP if person in front adjusts seat back. Fold out table barely accommodates laptop."

Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "It was so easy to board and I had no inconvenience. It took 4 minutes from when I said goodbye to my family till when I was at the front of the gate."
Cons: "Nothing! It was all great!"

Cons: "Service"

Cons: "Terrible service in flight and customer service wise .. app functionality was below"

Pros: "Crew was friendly, and the food was better than the usual KLM fare."
Cons: "The "new" seats were hard and uncomfortable. Avoid any kinds of seats near the bathroom in a configuration with 3 abreast next to the windows. The "aisle" seat is essentially a "waiting area" for the rest room."

Cons: "The fact that there are different airline carriers for one flight is hard. In my second flight they made me check a bag which was considered a carry on during my first flight"

Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliability."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."

Pros: "Great smooth flight staff was pleasant and the overall experience was fantastic."

Pros: "For an 8 hr flight...multiple snacks, 2 meals and continuous beverage service. Blanket, pillow amd movies."
Cons: "Watched flight attendant drop tongs on floor, pick them up and put them back in the bowl of buns and continue to use them to serve bums"

Pros: "Food and drink service"
Cons: "Boarding pass facility"

Pros: "Nice, turbulent-free flight. Food was good, service with a smile. Leg space was OK because Boeing 777s are usually better at this."
Cons: "Flight left over an hour late because of a sensor glitch. It is concerning when a technical glitch happens. But, the flight was smooth."

Pros: "Special treat for King's Day Friendly crew"
Cons: "15 min late boarding 30 min delay leaving the gate Very little leg room"

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "A movie player"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "The pilot, crew, etc. was all good. Boarding was great, as was deplaning. There was a lot of communication."
Cons: "I'm a tall woman and I was never more cramped. I think in a long flight such as this 2.5+ hours, they should not be using American Eagle jets. They are so tiny and my neighbor and I were practically on each other's laps."

Pros: "The flight time are on time ."
Cons: "Good entertainment on broad"

Pros: "CBP info."
Cons: "Wish AA cabin crew would treat the customers as attentively and friendly as the JAL crew. The 8pm inflight dinner is horrible. Why would they serve the cold dishes for the first Japanese course? I got a diarrhea."

Pros: "Take off 20 minute early. Super on time."
Cons: "The food can be better."

Pros: "Nothing. American is consistently terrible."
Cons: "Flight pushed back on time, but then we sat on the tarmac for well over an hour. I'm sure they did that to fudge their on-time record. Totally lame."

Pros: "Food and staff are great"
Cons: "Small space between seats"

Cons: "Luggage lost never return"

Pros: "In flight entertainment and food were great"
Cons: "Wish seats were comfier and more legroom"

Pros: "Wonderful Crew"

Pros: "Plane was only half full"
Cons: "American did not allow an upgrade at gate and said they never do that but just did it less than a year ago. He said we had to call, then walked away. Plane so old no plugs to charge devices on long flight, horrible."

Pros: "My flight was amazing---amazing in the fact that I had to be on top of flight status and was rudely spoken to by the sellers of the ticket. They almost cancelled my entire trip, even though I paid for it, because while at work I could not pick up the phone when they called me. This site is seriously a scam to buy your ticket from. I survived and was able to go---but I would never encourage anyone to buy through this site, unless you just really love living a nightmare. If you love nightmares, why not. Go ahead."
Cons: "Kayak is a nightmare to buy your flight through."

Pros: "Great Airport and easy access to the gates and transportation."

Pros: "Quick flight- Bahamas Airport was nice and walking to the plane on the tarmac was a cool experience"
Cons: "N/A- everything was pretty solid!"

Pros: "Meal and drink service was excellent"
Cons: "Economy plus is packed liked sardines and difficult to move from side to side. Also upgrade doesn’t include priority seating. It should be included in any seating upgrade."

Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable and that must have been the decision of the airline. We landed early and taxied and waited for a long time, more than 30 min until we actually pulled up at gate, also the airlines fault."

Pros: "Good service. The crew was very attentive. The pilots were very good about relaying Typhoon related issues to the passengers; and doing their best to get us to our destination as close to on time as they could"

Cons: "Assigned middle seat, no choice."

Cons: "My ticket was issued by JAL but it was printed oersted by American Air. I was confused which terminal I should go to checo in. I called JAL. i waited 2 hours. No answer. Then, I called AA. They said international. But i went to terminal 4 which is American Air just in case because it was OPERATED by AA. I was right! I hope someone gave me a correct info."

Pros: "Super nice plane. High tech . Comfortable. Good food"

Pros: "perfect"

Pros: "Boarding was a breeze"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The selection of music and movies to watch was extensive and wide ranging. All the Star Wars movies as well as great Disney movies as well."
Cons: "Felt very rushed when eating. Once the food/drinks were dropped off, it seems right away the staff was ready to pick up and clean."

Cons: "This flight was miserable. Seriously, one of the worst flight experiences I've ever had. The leg room was absurdly small. I'm not a tall person and I only had one inch in front of my legs. When the guy in front of me put his seat back it pressed into my knees. There wasn't enough space to bend down and untie my shoes, let alone get something out of my bag. My shoulder and knee were touching the guy next to me (a complete stranger) for the entire flight and there was nothing I could do about it. This was a red-eye but I absolutely could not sleep because it was so uncomfortable, so when we landed I had a terrible migraine and was nauseous and disoriented going through customs. I actually had to sit down in the airport because I though I was gonna pass out while trying to carry my bag, that's how shitty I felt after this flight. On top of that, not being able to sleep on the flight really messed up my sleep schedule and so jet lag from the time change has been made even worse, so I'm completely out of whack and its so much worse that it otherwise would have been because of the horrible flight. Also the food was gross and there wasn't enough of it. Even now, I don't think I have really communicated just how shitty this flight was. I was actually angry when I saw my seat upon boarding, and I'm still angry about it now."

Cons: "I was expecting this to be a flight by Japan Airlines but it turned out to be an American Airlines flight. I was expecting and wanted to experience a flight from another airline."

Pros: "there were 2 meals"
Cons: "were unable to pre-select without incurring an additional fee so our group of four was split up"

Pros: "The crew was very good"
Cons: "The food was not good on this flight."

Cons: "The service was mediocre and the food was horrible! It made me sick!"

Pros: "I loved that kayak grouped all my flights together into one easily accessible travel guide. The convenience of it all helped me out tremendously during my first visit to Japan. Overall a wonderful experience!"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing."

Pros: "The entertainment selection was pretty good on the flight. That is my only positive experience."
Cons: "The seats were incredible jam-packed together. We had a 9 1/2 hour flight from Tokyo and could not even sit without our knees touching the seat in front of us. My tray table couldn't even properly extend -- the seats are so tight my tray just folded up on top of me. The food was BAD. 1/3 edible out of each course, consistently. I saw other passengers also dumping untouched trays of mystery meat that came as a side. They handed out egg-tomato-cucumber sandwiches which were inedible. The tomato had gone bad and the egg had a sour taste -- I gagged when I took the first bite. I'm especially disappointed with the seat spacing, though. I had a really difficult time getting in/out of the seating aisle to use the restroom. Even with our bags stored under the seat, I couldn't get in without tripping on/getting my foot caught in the strap of our purses/backpack. I couldn't even turn on one side without my arms or legs touching the passenger next to me -- sore neck, sore back, and still couldn't even get a wink of sleep. I will not be flying internationally with American Airlines again. They are the epitome of an airline trying to cash in on as many seats as possible. Save yourself the trouble and fly Japan Airlines directly -- their food was great and their seats were very comfortable."

Cons: "I wish they have two sheets. I don't like to sit next to stranger. And hard to go to bathroom"

Pros: "It's convenient that was next to a laboratory."
Cons: "It's convenient that my seat by a laboratory but since the way to laboratory is narrow the crews kept bumping my seat by the catering carts that kept woke me up while resting..."

Pros: "The different variety of movies that was shown as well as the usb port."
Cons: "No free wifi, more meals, and more drinks."

Pros: "This JAL flight was actually operated by american airlines using an american airlines plane. This flight was not great compared to the JAL flight we took to Haneda which was actually a JAL plane which was roomier and had pretty good food."
Cons: "Food was extremely salty, overly sauced. The breakfast options were salmon or omelette and i got salmon. It was spongy and didn't look like salmon. It must have been mashed with something else and reformed into a roll form."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "I liked the promptness and great service I would fly with them again :)"

Pros: "JAL is awesome overall. Super friendly crew. It was a short flight so no good was given but I did get little treats. There wasn't a tv to watch anything but I survived."

Cons: "I was expecting to be on an JAL flight but it wasn't JAL and was operated by american airlines and I feel ripped off."

Pros: "The movie, game and music selections were good. However, my son was only able to connect to the Disney movies. Something was wrong with his monitor."
Cons: "Food was awful! Service was hit or miss. One flight attendant was very curt in asking about beverages. They seemed to be impatient. Also, comfort level was poor. I am only about 5'2" but I thought leg room space was tight."

Pros: "Boarding was easy and I liked the film selection."
Cons: "I was placed in the back of the plane and subsequently they ran out of the food option I would have chosen. There was only pork left which I cannot eat. I was left hungry and the stewardess was rude about it- I understand that she was likely tired as I was in the last row but it's literally her job. The flight was also pretty turbulent- which is usually worse in the back of the plane."

Pros: "Good variety of entertainment options. Wifi reliable"
Cons: "Food options were horrible. Need to offer non seafood/pork option."

Pros: "We bought the extra legroom. Worth it."

Pros: "I was just happy to get a flight out early the next morning when my Thursday afternoon flight was cancelled."
Cons: "I ended up in a middle seat due to having to be rescheduled, but it was still comfortable."

Pros: "I liked the boarding, entertainment, and food."
Cons: "I did not like the cramped legroom. The airline got greedy and crammed too many rows of seats in the plane, cramping the legroom for all the economy passengers. Legroom in economy was MUCH better on the Japan Airlines plane (also a 777) that I was on from Los Angeles to Japan. Legroom is always important, but especially so on long trans oceanic flights. I am inclined to avoid American Airlines in the future because of that.qa"

Pros: "Food, flight plan on the screen, selection of music and movies, that the lights were turned down for sleep, quiet efficiency of the crew"

Pros: "Roomy legroom and proximity to the restroom"
Cons: "There is limited recline."

Pros: "The staff was very nice and the movie selection in flight was among the best I've had on a plane."
Cons: "Food was decent but this is only comparing to Japan Airlines which I had on my flight from SFO to Haneda."

Pros: "Japan Team excellent in customer service"
Cons: "AA flight crew very poor and not helpful, I saw one of the flight crew almost fight with a customer over a baby crib. As per my experience I had a nice travel suit that I took off and flught attendant did not offer help. I have to store on floor."

Pros: "This airline is evil."
