Top 5 airlines serving Athens Eleftherios V. to Charlotte Douglas
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Everything was very good and comfortable. I really enjoyed my journey. Thanks."
Cons: "Food would have been better."
Cons: "At CKG, mobile boarding passes for international are not accepted by the security screening authority, which says only boarding passes printed at the counter are acceptable. The QR counter opens approximately 3.5~4 hours ahead of the departure of the airlines only flight from CKG."
Pros: "crew was so kind and lovely with our daughter"
Cons: "food was fairly rough from Doha and the wine options in economy on all flights were terrible"
Pros: "Flight attendand Tiessy - QR943 - 8 Jun 2019 (outbound Singapore to Doha) She serve us (with kid) very well, with plenty of smile and warm helpful gestures."
Cons: "I really hope that kid's menu can be updated/changed in the system at least 24/48hrs before flight, as that was the first time we ride Qatar (we have no idea the menu) So we only order it once during the outbound flight."
Pros: "Crew, food."
Cons: "Dulles airport - yes, not directly related to the airline but Dulles is over capacity. Some should consider BWI - Baltimore Washington International that is little further but still a good airport."
Pros: "Crew and qsuite were top notch. The dine on demand is the best. One little nip pick. The crew knew I was going to sleep. It was a 1:20am departure flight and did not offer to make the bed/mattress..."
Cons: "Wish we could’ve park at the gate instead of bus over to terminal. Given Doha is their hub, should have been able to accommodate that. Also, do they update the movies every month? Still the same movies as in June."
Cons: "I don't understand how this company has a high rating in service. We missed our connection because the plane was delayed and they treated us poorly. How can you have a complimentary lounge for people missing their flight but not allow people in. I guess because we were only economy. When asked could we pay for an upgrade to business class, the attendant responded with "oh, its expensive" I didn't ask how much, I asked if we could. I never felt so insulted. The food was terrible. By the time they got to us, our food was cold and they ran out of the menu item we wanted. I have no intention of flying Qatar again. I will stick with Emirates"
Pros: "The Crew were professional, friendly and comforting. The A380 Business Class is the best way to fly. Smooth journey, very comfortable reclining beds with enough room to within the bed area to move around with adequate space. The Wine list was excellent with a great choice and variety."
Cons: "Nothing to do with the flight...but Qatar could have offered an airport hotel room to their Bus. Class passengers for the 9 hour delay....we did have the Lounge, but a shower, rest and comfort after another previous 5 hour 30 minutes flight from Athens 11.30am Start to 2.00am start from Doa."
Cons: "Quatar is the best"
Pros: "The seats are comfortable; food is good."
Cons: "Our luggage hasn't arrived due to the short layover and due to the feact that the first leg plane was late."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "The flight took off late more than an hour"
Pros: "comfortable seats, pretty good food, extremely gracious cabin crew."
Cons: "Lactose-free breakfast option was fish... I get that some people like fish for breakfast, but to me it was a little nauseating. Just ate around it and was fine though. Overhead air vents could be improved. felt a little plane-sick toward the end of the flight."
Pros: "Aircraft was brand new -- very clean and everything worked well. All flights were on time. Crew was excellent -- very courteous and helpful. Overall -- very good."
Cons: "The food was not served well. There were no snacks on the flight. The service was not even prompt. If I request for juice/water it was served to me after 30-40 minutes . I was travelling with a baby and the staff was not even considerate about it and attending fast. I requested for a mineral water bottle as I ran out of baby water for making milk for the baby and the staff was so reluctant and told "they are done" and just left.I am really dissapointed with this. I doubt if I would travel with qatar again"
Pros: "Food and flight attendants were excellent in Business Class"
Cons: "Sitting near bathrooms was a bit noisy and difficult to sleep"
Pros: "Spacious for economy, pleasant flight attendants"
Pros: "I had never heard of Qatar Airways before I booked a 24hr flight to and from Sydney, Australia. I only did this on the suggestion from a friend that stated Qatar Airways was "alright". So for the price I thought what the heck! I was extremely pleased with the service from the cabin crew. They are always polite, professional, and well trained compared to my previous favorites Delta and Lufthansa. The seats were comfortable (as comfortable as Economy and 24hours of flying can be), the entertainment and aircraft were state of the art, and the food was outstanding for airline food. If I get the chance in the future I will definitely choose Qatar Airways for long trips."
Cons: "Other rude or snotty passengers taking up the crews time and attention for no reason. But as I stated in the "positive" side of this review, the crew handled these impolite individuals with a smile and polite attitude. Kudos to Qatar Airways."
Pros: "Hotel to freshen up was great idea"
Cons: "Visa took forever. Ended having only 2 hours at the hotel"
Pros: "Good food, overall good service"
Pros: "Nothing. As flight was rerouted and airline changed"
Cons: "We didn't like the fact that our flight changed to a diff airline when we paid to fly with Qatar"
Pros: "crew is very professional"
Cons: "this plane is really old and junky. other flight times on this route get a much better plane"
Pros: "service, food and cleanness"
Pros: "Clean airplane"
Cons: "On a 16 hour journey, we only had 2 meals and no snacks. I usually fly Lufthansa. They provide 2 meals and a third snack (usually a pizza) and keep additional snacks and drinks fully stocked in the back of the plane. None of that existed on this flight. The crew was very uninterested. Seemed very absent and not into assisting patrons. Overall, not what I have experienced on prior Qatar Airways flights. To add insult to injury, I was sitting next to an EXTREMELY smelly person, which didn't make the experience any easier :( Not the airlines responsibility to ensure patrons exercise proper hygiene, but that didn't help the situation with my hungry growling stomach."
Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "It was a pretty old flight and had no tv in front! Huge disappointment. Probably they thought ppl flying from Doha to Colombo were ok with a low quality flight with no entertainment."
Pros: "Water bottle"
Cons: "There was no snack for the people that don't sleep, it's a long flight, I'd suggest instant noodle cups for those or chips or cookies (I know they hand them out maybe once, but maybe have it near the bathroom, so when people are hungry they don't have to bother the crew)."
Pros: "Food was better. Seating was comfortable."
Cons: "Baghdad is still an armpit. Doha is very nice. Kuwait not so nice. Qatar airlines has the best service I have ever had in 35 years of air travel."
Pros: "I had high hopes flying Qatar Airways for the first time but I suppose they are bound to have the same uncomfortable planes as everyone else now."
Cons: "I was annoyed that I could not put my carry on items in the bin above my seat. I was in front of the bulkhead so there was no other place to store my items except the overhead bin and the flight attendant took the space in my bin for some baby items she thought she might need for another passenger. I had to store my personal items away from my seat."
Pros: "Great food etc"
Pros: "The crew lead for Doha to Dhaka flight was very responsive and proactive. The food on this flight was very good."
Cons: "Air vent was not available for Business class between Doha and Dhaka; which made the temperature hotter than my liking."
Pros: "Polite staff keen to help"
Pros: "Had a great experience with this flight"
Pros: "It was excellent."
Cons: "It was excellent."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "Extremely like Qatar airways Both ground services and in flight service are excellent"
Cons: "Nothing . everything was fine."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic!! They saved this rating."
Cons: "Old plane. No power outlet, no wifi, entertainment system was glitchy... if it was not for the crew, this would have been the poorest u could get. Doha security and transfer were unruly, long, and a mess. Terrible experience there. Nearly missed connection. Dreading going through there on return flight"
Cons: "asian vegetable meal was uninspired"
Pros: "On time, good crew, easy connection."
Cons: "Hard and tight seats for such long night flight."
Pros: "The entertainment selections and the comfort of my seat."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for two hours without any warning, despite being registered for the airline's flight notification system. Service was terrible. The flight crew did not offer any kind of apology or explanation for the delay. Food and beverage service was delayed and the staff was forgetful of guests' requests. Upon our arrival in Doha, checked bags did not arrive until 2 hours after we landed! How does an airport receive a 5-star rating, but takes 2 hours to return baggage to its guests? Overall, a poor experience from Qatar Airways."
Pros: "Qatar airways always seems to handle busy flights and crammed seats calmly, efficiently and on time. It's a long haul - 16+ hours, and if you have to go economy as a 6 foot tall person, their seats recline well, seemingly better than many. You have to plan your long layovers, and they do offer assistance with hotel transfers, but they don't advertise this very clearly - so do your homework before flying!"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!!!!"
Cons: "Again, our flight was cancelled without notification!!!!!"
Cons: "We normally fly business class, but this was a quick side trip so we settled for economy."
Pros: "Seat leg room is very decent"
Cons: "very old planes with no wifi. Food overall was terrible. So called 5 star airline."
Cons: "I gave the food 4 stars only because of better meals that I have had with a different but similar class airline. It is good food but it is not excellent."
Pros: "Great crew...seat spacing gives great comfort. Love they have a comfort class option. So much better experience than American. Wish Delta had more direct flights out of Charlotte."
Cons: "It was perfect!!"
Pros: "Great crew, spacing of passengers, comfortable, on time"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Arriving over a half an hour late"
Pros: "Crew, atmosphere, timeliness. I was satisfied overall"
Cons: "Gate number changed couple times before flight departure"
Cons: "Far in advance I requested a seat with extra leg room for a back condition that is supported by a physicians note. The seat did not appear to me to have extra leg room. I was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Great entertainment features and free drinks."
Cons: "Ran out of certain types of food"
Pros: "Seats in economy are never comfortable. And someone also reclines their seat. But overall bathrooms were clean and food was good. Really no complaints about the flight itself or the crew!"
Cons: "Carry ons are too big! People should not be allowed to bring a piece of luggage inside the cabin. They are very heavy and some people cannot even lift them to place them in overhead compartment. Makes boarding slower and more complicated. Seats need to be a little wider. If a big person sits next"
Pros: "Having internet access on an overseas flight was a new treat for me. Delta appears to be bucking the trend of making flying miserable. I liked the waiting area at JFK with charging stations for every seat."
Pros: "Food was great. Especially the ice cream."
Cons: "The girls were sweet as usual!"
Cons: "Late and bumpy"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "I actually can not complain"
Pros: "There were minimal passengers on the flight so I was able to have the entire row to myself. The flight was also very short which is always nice."
Pros: "Boarding from back to front. Making early boarders wait to the side when they tried to embark too soon."
Cons: "All the people standing in line prior to boarding."
Pros: "Video access"
Cons: "Too hot, too crowded"
Cons: "Didn’t get our beverage and snack till we were almost ready to land at Charlotte"
Pros: "This was two hours of absolute freezing temperature"
Cons: "It was so cold it was actually unbeasable"
Pros: "Great experience. Left on time and landed early. Comfortable and great crew"
Cons: "Wish there were more snack options"
Pros: "Really nice staff all the way through from gate agent to flight attendants. Flight left on time and landed early. Night and day vs American"
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was perfect."
Cons: "I didn’t appreciate that your rude flight attendant allowed another passenger to move suitcase and she got an attitude with me. Delta there is always something on your flights."
Pros: "The crew on this particular flight was probably the nicest I've ever encountered on Delta. Sadly, that is rarely the case."
Pros: "Like the smaller contingent of passengers. Boerding a lot quicker and simpler. Captain gave us some interesting details about plane and its capabilities."
Cons: "Exit row seats were were very uncomfortable, very little padding, although there was plenty of legroom. No snacks or entertainment. WiFi did not work."
Cons: "I was the very first person in line for Zone 3, and they automatically told me I had to gate check my bag, which would mean adding at least 20 minutes when I landed. I took it on the plane anyway; and there was PLENTY of space in the overhead compartments. This feels like I’m being treated as a second class citizen because I was unwilling to be nickel and dimed for seat or boarding upgrades. It’s infuriating"
Pros: "It was great because I was able to get an aisle seat."
Cons: "Like it all"
Pros: "Delta personnel were very pleasant/friendly"
Pros: "Flight attendant was nice. She changed my seat to the front cause the guy behind me was kicking my chair."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight from the day before and when they rebooked my flight, they could of gave me a better seat."
Cons: "My return portion of my flight was canceled and had to purchase a new ticket. I would like a full refund of my expenses."
Pros: "Left on time!"
Cons: "Too cramped"
Cons: "I understand gate changes happen, but I got 4 texts switching the gates back and forth. Is that necessary?"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and the boarding crew. From the time I walked up to the counter at LGA to the time I exited the plane in CLT, I was treated so kindly and with such respect. Kudos to the Delta Crew."
Cons: "The FLIGHT!!!!! There were delays. Scheduled take of time was 6:59 PM. We took off at 735 PM. Once I was on the plane, I started kicking myself in the you know what because I knew immediately I was scammed. I had purchased a 1st Class ticket for $400+, only to find that my comfort would be the equivalent of that if I purchased a ticket in economy. My long legs would still be cramped. For the past few years, I have been purchasing 1st class for it's spaciousness. On this flight, on the RCJ700, I did not fly comfortably. The space was very tight, and I was able to stretch my legs as if I sat in economy. This was by far, my most uncomfortable flight ever. SMH; A WASTE OF MY HARD EARNED MONEY!!!!!"
Pros: "But, this wasn't bad at all, even though we were on the very last seat of the plane. We were next to one of the flight attendants during take off and landing and she was very kind and we were speaking with her. The flight was smooth"
Pros: "We spent 90 min in line to take off on the tarmac. Pilot kept us informed. Crew were very pleasant."
Pros: "2 hour delay.. had requested when I originally booked the flight an isle seat. I did not get it. The flight was long and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Attendants were courteous quick and attentive. On board entertainment was awesome. Kept us fed with main course snacks and beverages throughout. Made a 10 hour flight bearable."
Cons: "Music selection available was seriously lacking but the movies and games made up for that. Also Air France going into Greece was not as good. Seats had a gap between seat and window, food left much to be desired and service was not as courteous as delta's."
Pros: "The flight was on schedule and landed early, and the pilot landed that plane very gently. It was quite impressive."
Cons: "I purchased a first class ticket in hopes that I would have a lot more comfort during the flight. It took me quite some time to get comfortable. The seat was ok, but I found the pillows to be very small and flat. I needed multiple pillows. The head rest was not adjustable, so I also found this to be uncomfortable. Usually when I fly AA, the headrest is adjustable. My final dislike was that the beverage selection was limited. I'm quite sure there was plenty of alcohol, but what about those customers who do not drink alcoholic beverages? I asked for hot chocolate, there was none. I asked for hot tea with honey, there wasn't any. So all in all my flight was okay, but that is solely because of the flight attendant and pilot. They did their jobs and they did an excellent job."
Pros: "Food was nice and plenty. Great movie selection. Very polite crew."
Cons: "The seat was a bit uncomfortable and not big enough."
Pros: "Delayed and told die to Air Traffic Cintrol with ninproxtove means to resolve our delay. Poor customer sefvie at JFK...indifferent and lied to us."
Pros: "I got a seat in the exit row with lots of leg room. The entertainment that I didn't use offered a great selection with very recent movies, etc."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to take a bus to my terminal. I didn't like the fact that my gate was changed more than five times. I didn't like that my flight time was changed more than 15 times with no reason why until boarding time. I didn't like the fact that I did not get a seat assignment until boarding the plane. I didn't like the fact that they couldn't manage to scramble another plane and crew, but instead forced us to wait over four hours for one that was stuck somewhere else in the country."
Pros: "Speed and comfortable kind bars were a nice touch"
Cons: "Luggage went elsewhere"
Pros: "Plane left 2 hours late."
Pros: "The boarding process was very well done. Gate agent and flight attendants on top of their game. This is how it is supposed to be done. Thank you."
Cons: "Although weather played a part in the poor experience, it wasn't the only factor. Delta was unprepared."
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: "Games and videos were good. Food was ok."
Cons: "Not enough leg room. Need at least another 2 inches."
Cons: "The aircraft was older and visibly dirty in the corners. The baggage took well over the guaranteed 20 mins."
Pros: "The gate agents were courteous and efficient. The flight crew was very attentive. The pilots were clear in their announcements. Even though we were held up by sheer plane/ground traffic, we managed to still get back home early!"
Cons: "At one point on the initial flight, the cabin got so cold that I had to put on a jacket."
Cons: "Due to last minute and absurd changes made to my itinerary by Delta without my knowledge, I was not on this flight."
Pros: "The Capain kept us well nformed"
Cons: "4 hours trip, international, and only food to purchase."
Cons: "Business class on the 3.5 hour flight was just blocking the middle seat in the front of the plane. No leg room, narrow seats. My husband is 6’4”” with wide shoulders. His legs do not fit and therefore extend into the aisle. Flight attendants were constantly bumping into his shoulders. Very cramped We were not aware of this configuration."
Pros: "the crew was attentive."
Cons: "the seats are extremely crammed, the boarding process was so disorganized people were yelling at the staff...anyone they could find to vent. boarding passes had to be re-scanned, people had to be removed-assigned seats and no explanation was given"
Cons: "I am disappointed that BA has moved over to a few for service refreshments policy. It appeared that nothing was being offered for free- not even tea or coffee which in my opinion is below par for an airline like BA."
Pros: "Breakfast was great, quick loading , great staff ,leg room was much better for my 6’1” husband with a knee replacement."
Cons: "Due to my husband’s knee replacement, he is always taken to another area to be searched and checked while his wallet and all of his valuables ate left on the conveyer belt unattended and could be stolen by anyone. I grabbed his stuff but they didn’t know who I was. They need a more secure policy."
Pros: "Clean plan that was only slightly delayed"
Cons: "I was charged for water on a 4+ hour flight. That’s unheard of! Also, the seats didn’t even recline. I will never fly British Airways again"
Pros: "The pilot kept us in the terminal when he found out that we were delayed due to fog in London. I appreciated waiting in a more comfortable, open space rather than on the plane. I was also impressed with how the controllers and schedulers in London handled the delays so that I had not problem making my connection. And as things turned out, the second leg of the trip went so well that we reached our destination on time despite a one-hour delay."
Cons: "I'd like to see British Airways consider at the very least giving their customers a cup of coffee or tea on a 4-hour flight."
Pros: "BA always has a wonderful crew and I really enjoy flying with them!"
Cons: "One of my bags didn’t arrive. Hopefully it will be delivered to me as they promised ☹️"
Pros: "Nice crew Good food Good landing and no uncomfortable turbulence"
Cons: "Personal tv didnt work for majority of flight and when it did there was no audio (update technology ASAP)"
Pros: "Spacious seats"
Cons: "Very hot airplane before take off"
Cons: "One should not have to pay for a drink on that flight. it is too long. If it were less than an hour, I would understand."
Pros: "We got to London safely"
Cons: "This was a two leg flight. The British Airways leg between Athens and London was one of the worst flight I have had in the past few years. I will never fly BA in within Europe again! Passengers are required to pay for a glass of water The flight reminded me of attending a professional sporting event. The flight crew is turned into food, beverage, and merchandise vendors. London Heathrow Airport is one of the worst international airports in Europe."
Cons: "This is a 3.5 hour flight, early in the morning (meaning people are up hours in advance). No snacks and no water are a terrible idea. It seems that this is something like a strategy for trips to/from Athens. It is not a small/fast flight by any means and water should be offered and not charged at ridiculously high prices. Not enough space for a slightly taller people. Emergency exit seats which have more legroom were priced extra and way expensive. PS: it was too cold in that plane."
Pros: "Pilot kept us informed of delay status - gross delay b/c of French air traffic strike."
Cons: "Ran out of food, slowest beverage serve ever experienced. NO staff greeting passengers who were very late and missing connections (about 3/4 of passengers) insane and grossly inefficient boarding system was mass chaos - boarded passenger in buses by priority leaving some buses 90% empty with large crowds waiting to board."
Pros: "All BA personnel from check-in to landing were outstanding, professional."
Cons: "I had requested and been assured there would be a wheelchair waiting at Heathrow to transport me to my connecting flight in terminal 3. I never got one. We kept being told to walk to another place and there would be one. This went on all the way to the plane which was already boarding."
Pros: "on time, safe, not crowded,"
Cons: "no water or anything without paying extra. blase crew."
Pros: "Good schedules and reliable flights."
Cons: "Is there anything that America does poorly that the UK will not follow with? Does BA really wish to compete with Easyjet? No meals on a 3.5 hour flight? Extra payments for everything? Sorry, I will not fly Delta or United transatalantic because I have a choice. I guess I should switch back to Lufthansa or Swiss."
Pros: "The inflight crew was great. The film sound failed part of the way into the flight."
Cons: "The boarding was chaotic and confused. Many passengers complained. But the MUCH bigger issue was we weren't told until we got to the airport that NO bags were included as part of the fare. We had three (we are traveling around the world). Yes, when I looked back at the bottom of the reservation there was a note that said bags not included, but as this is such a significant thing, I think it should be made much clearer. I direct feature films and travel a great, great deal. I rarely make my own reservations, to be fair, but I still think this is worth noting. In the end I just bumped my wife and I up to Business class, but for others who can't afford it, I think you should make this clearer. I will write to your facebook page etc later in the hope you will get the message. That said, again, your flight crew was great."
Cons: "Flight was no better than a low cost airline. Almost 4h flight with no food/snack and NO DRINKS."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Pay for food on BA? They didn't even offer free water."
Cons: "Not even a glass of water?"
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "My bag was not delivered. What bothered me the most was that the representative told me the bag would be delivered to my house the next day. Then they say they want to know what is in the luggage. Why? Does it matter? The two reps were clueless."
Pros: "Flight was on time and there was in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was very disorganized."
Cons: "No meal included on my second leg of my trip..had to pay for it...but my booking confirmation clearly indicated meal included. Misleading and will never travel with BA again."
Cons: "Not even a cup of coffee! WOW. they charge and nickle and dime you to death. I had to buy a seat to be guaranteed to sit next to my wife. the base price for the flight was reasonable but then they added extra charges that were almost 1/2 more. the baggage charge was high. If I have my choice would not fly BA again."
Cons: "Paid extra for mediocre seats"
Cons: "Didn't even offer you a bag of peanuts!!! Weak!!"
Pros: "The food was good and enjoyed the entertainment."
Cons: "We had to buy coffee, water, or anything other non-alcohol beverage we wanted to drink. Not sure why on one flight we didn't get free beverage service when all of the other BA flights provided it. When we got to London, we purchased drinks at the airport because we wanted to be prepared for our next flight and then we didn't need it because we had free beverage service."
Cons: "After technical issues, our flight got delayed over 2 hrs. and many passengers missed international connections. BA handled the rescheduling very poorly. They did not offer any compensation and during the delayed flight, they did not even offer us water for free - just as a curtesy. Overall I see this as incapablity and very poor treatment of passengers."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and welcoming."
Cons: "The seats are not comfortable at all. Spaces are too tight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed in the middle of boarding with no AC when board. Luggage was broken. Missed connection to California due to delay."
Cons: "Seats are not that comfortable and food is terrible."
Pros: "The trans-atlantic segment was OK"
Cons: "Between Britain and Europe there is no food, not even water, unless you pay extra: 1.80£, or about $2.40 for a SMALL bottle of water. Flight to Athens is four hours, no free water! Airlines like Ryan or Jetblue do this but charge A LOT LESS than British Air. Shame."
Cons: "Boarding process was confusing because it started so early 50+ minutes prior, but our boarding passes said otherwise, 30 minutes prior."
Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "Would have like wifi so I could plan my trip and do some business."
Cons: "Flight was late for more than hours , due to the delate flight a lost the last train in London , I had to paid a Taxi over $ us dollars 106.00. Not in my budget . :( Maria Zoriada York"
Pros: "Flight there was ok."
Cons: "British Airways customer service was terrible. Flight was delayed. We called BA and they told to us to arrive at the later flight and find our connection in London. This was not the right thing to do and we are still not home. We are now stuck in DC, have no clue where our luggage is. BA has provided no information. Not sure why they even have a call line."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Have to pay for even bottled water or coffee."
Pros: "Great crew, loaded early, smooth flight, landed early"
Cons: "Felt abused with petty charges. Charged for WATER- even those peanut packs were not free. Checked luggage fees were up to 100 British pounds per bag. Legroom was barely OK. Entertainment was a decade old system. Not a good value."
Pros: "Plane had a bit more legroom than others I've been on recently. That was a pleasant surprise"
Cons: "Airlines in general need to do a better job of controlling the boarding process (using the groups to board) and controlling the amount of luggage people bring on. Peoples definition of a "personal item" are skewed."
Pros: "Punctuality, courtesy, professionalism."
Cons: "No food not even snacks were served"
Cons: "Once arriving in London our airplane didn't have a place to park so that we could be relieved from our flight. We waited, seated in the plane for over 45 minutes and we almost missed our connecting flight. We had to run to the next gate and getting through security checks was a nightmare. The London airport crew seemed to have terrible communication and terrible customer service skills."
Pros: "Very clean craft, Nice staff and smooth flight."
Cons: "Never again will I fly with this airline! Had a horrible flight , food, service going from Chicago to Athens with portion of the plain empty and same thing again back."
Pros: "Athens to London no complementary drinks or snacks on a FOUR hour flight."
Pros: "The crew were great and friendly. The check-in agent put my father's name on notice for assistance in London for his achy knees."
Cons: "We only brought (2 - 1 each) carry on bags and were asked multiple times to check the bags even though they fit easily on the aircraft. We only had one hour to connect in London so we (1) could not risk losing our bags and (2) needed them for our things. Food was only available for purchase as is the case in the US now. British Airways was always a cut above in my eyes, now they are just part of the herd."
Pros: "The service was good. I felt bad for them because of the number of cards they had to process."
Cons: "As of mid-January, any flight less than 5 hours includes no complimentary food or drink. Cash and check are not accepted, and the card processors are slow. This meant the stewards were in the aisle for quite a while dealing with this, and access to the bathrooms was hampered."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hours in Athens due to London fog. BA did nothing for passengers with connections. No information given nor attempts to hold connections. Missed our connection by 5 minutes. Could see the airplane pulling out after RUNNING through the airport for 15 minutes to catch it. There were 7 passengers on this connection. This was unacceptable"

Cons: "Tv screen didn’t work on trans Atlantic flight"

Cons: "Noting all was great"
Cons: "Our original flight was cancelled so we were rebooked for a much later flight which impacted our vacation. Call system was not working efficiently."
Pros: "Didn’t like anything"
Cons: "Old planes! Very old planes! No charging ports on board. No entertainment! Seats broken. for the largest carrier in the world as they say. Horrible! Three and a half hour delay missed my connection. Traveled for 16 hours on a flight that should have been 7 hours. HORRIBLE American Airlines."
Pros: "Very very helpful I will fly AA every time I can"
Pros: "Liked sitting in the bigger leg room. Short flight was a bonus."
Cons: "Sat on tarmac a lot at both airports. They boarded all 9 groups so back to back, there was almost no line speration."

Pros: "Flights attendants were super friendly and the plane was very clean"
Cons: "seats are uncomfortable"
Pros: "The planes and staff were excellent!!!"
Cons: "Hated the layovers!!!"
Cons: "The first class flight attendants were VERY RUDE to the passengers getting on the plane, especially the male flight attendant. While serving drinks, instead of saying things like "pardon me", they would say "move" (as was said directly to me) and get out of the way" (as I herd him say to another passinger). Very disrespectful way to treat a person, let alone a paying customer! Btw...I am a middle class 5' 11" tall college educated male."
Pros: "They checked my carry on"
Cons: "Seemed unprepared my movie screen nonfunctional"
Cons: "The plane was 2 hours late . It was in the hsngar. They said they were fixing the plane. It was an old plane. No Screen anywhere . It was 5.5 flight across country. Only pretzels. I will try not to fly American again."
Cons: "I paid $75.00 to take an earlier flight and Americans crew error nullified this. I feel ripped off."
Pros: "Food was better than expected - not a fan of airline food, but this was not so bad."
Cons: "Finnair was thru American Airlines. American had only a couple of check in windows open when we got to the Frankfurt airport - nowhere near enough to handle the number of people checking in."
Pros: "Polite and professional:-)"
Pros: "I liked the fact that it was a smooth flight, my row was totally empty, which enabled me to pass out like a little baby. I forgot that I was on an airplane and not an air mattress. Kudos to the pilot!"
Cons: "Eddie Murphy wasn't on my flight"
Pros: "The crew, as always"

Pros: "Individual screens worked well, food was good."
Cons: "Flight attendants with carts bumped my boyfriend's shoulder repeatedly, nearly every time they went by, without ever apologizing. They were also really rude when we asked for additional beverages. I travel very frequently, and I was shockedz"
Pros: "Nice boarding head schedule friendly service."
Cons: "Poor entertainment but other than that it was a great flight until we got to Charlotte the ✈it was thousands of feets to make touchdown went took off again a was scary moment for all the passengers."
Pros: "I liked that I landed in time to get to my next flight."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had a child kicking my seat back the whole flight and that the in flight movie that I purchased skipped more than it played."
Cons: "The delay"
Cons: "The AA employee at the counter in Batoj Rouge informed me that I would miss my connection at Charlotte Airport due to a delayed in the incoming flight. Hebgave me the option to flight the next day or flight the same day, and after a 2 hour delay flight to Charlotte where I would be provided a hotel room and a meal for the night. I asked several times if that information was confirmed and he repeatedly said yes. At my arrival at Charlotte Airport (near midnight) every AA employee said that they did NOT have any more hotels. It was obvious that everything was a staged lie since over 100 people had to spend the night in one of the the terminals where we were provided a pillow and a blanket. I am terribly disappointed for the lack of transparency in AA. I was told my some friends that they also have had experiences like that at the same Charlotte Airport. You have damage once again your reputation and from no own in will expect THE WORST from AA."
Pros: "Arrived home safely"
Cons: "Arrived very early due to logistics and our flight was not leaving for 9 hrs and the AA Representative would only put us on a earlier flight if we paid a large fee, so we waited then the original flight was delayed 2 hours and we nearly missed our connection in another city, it all could have been avoided if a little flexability and care were involved to put us on a earlier flight"
Cons: "Zero flexibility"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and welcoming. I enjoy having more choices then just pretzels and peanuts for a snack."
Cons: "The boarding process seems like it is hectic and not very well planned. A lot of people still standing in line that are not actually boarding yet because they are not in the correct group. This made it hard to actually board and know where the line was. Once on the plane the seats just seemed very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Staff were efficient and helpful."
Cons: "I was told at 7;15 am that the flight was delayed until 11:30. Unfortunately, I was already at the airport as my original flight was at 9:00. Luckily, there was another flight that would get me to my final destination at the same time as what I booked."
Pros: "On time. Bigger plane. No problems"
Pros: "Crew was sympathetic"
Cons: "The plane was extremely small, and the flight attending was rude and very bad at her job"
Pros: "Comfort on an airline? I did have a great seatmate... a psychiatrist from Greenville. I told him a loved my parents, and that was not much of a conversation starter. hehehe"
Pros: "Staff was very courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 time, needed to change connecting flight. Surprised that flight crew didn't even say goodbye and thank you as they were cleaning the aircraft before passengers were off."
Cons: "No entertainment system on flight and no power options to charge electronics"
Cons: "Customer service miss lled us as to connections"
Pros: "Comfortable seat and on time."
Cons: "Too many programs that confuse the boarding process."
Cons: "Flight delayed waiting for connecting flight to clear customs. No communication on the delay just kept delaying. Doubt will wait for me next time connection delayed."
Pros: "Although winter storm Jonas wreaked havoc on our flight schedule, AA agents worked hard to re-route us repeatedly each time one of our scheduled flights was canceled. We were originally supposed to fly to San Juan, but due to all the flight cancelations & delays, we would have missed our cruise ship, so AA flew us to St. Thomas to catch up with our ship. Agents, pilots, flight attendants were all in a good mood in spite of all the stress from problems created from the storm."
Cons: "Very tight quarters on some of the flights. A few of the newer planes had more leg room which was appreciated. I understand there will be some free wifi & a few free snacks in the near future. I hope that is true because sometimes it is hard to have enough time to grab a sandwich between flights. Free Wifi and/or movies would not only help parents trying to entertain their kids, but I think all of us passengers would be in a much better mood if we could have something to watch to distract us from the tight quarters. One of my favorite suitcases was ruined, but AA has offered to repair or replace it."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful so unpretentious and responsive."
Cons: "The food was not that good. I don’t eat potato salad out. The pasta was not flavorful. I wish airlines would switch to butter cookies and skip chocolate chip."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours due to mechanical issues. Missed our connection to LAX in Toronto due to the delay. Poor communication from on the ground staff regarding the rebooking. When we actually got our rebooked flight, it was for two days later. Took multiple calls to booking line to get a more reasonable flight out the following day. The hotel they put us up in was over 40 minutes away too. To add insult to injury, when we finally got to LAX, our luggage didn't make it and didn't get delivered until two days later. Overall very poor experience."
Pros: "We paid to upgrade our economy seats, so there was leg room and the seats were roomy (we were immediately behind the first class area). Service is pretty good. Not great, but pretty good."
Cons: "The food was terrible! We know airline food is usually not great, but come on folks! I will cook spinach pie for all and bring it next time! The lunch was ok, but the snack (bad chocolate cookies) and the dinner (hot pocket type thing) were really bad and terribly unhealthy. I skipped lunch because I bought it from the airport because on the the way in I tried the meals and knew it would be bad...Entertainment was even worse! I did the AC rouge site with my iPad. The movie I chose was interrupted every 4 minutes for commercials-the SAME five commercials mind you-AND every time they stopped, the movie would start from the beginning! Ridiculous really...."
Cons: "Our flights were switched twice. Ended up paying for seats on an added interim flight to Chicago. Not good. Do not like surprises."
Cons: "I was dozing when the attendant came around- as a result went through whole flight without water!"
Pros: "Crew was great and very helpful when needed!"
Cons: "There were no TVs or Audio Jacks for entertainment for such a long flight. They did have an iPad available for a cost."
Pros: "We got exit row seats and had tons of room - without an upcharge. We even got a hot breakfast in economy for free. Our first bad was free too - love Lufthansa (who operated flight fir air canada)"
Cons: "Need bigger coffee cups!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice and friendly, they did a great job distributing the meals."
Cons: "No inflight computer to watch movies or track flight info."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "The Crew Was rude. the seats were small, NO TV's, for a 10 hour flight. Had to "rent" a iPad. I was not able to download movies on my own device. Had to pay for drinks, on an international flight, Are you kidding me!!?? I will never fly Air Canada Rouge again. Very disappointing."
Pros: "the staff was wonderful"
Cons: "no entertainment on flight 10 hours bored to death"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Everything was slow. We had been in the air for more than an hour before any drinks were offered. Also what kind of decent airline charges for alcohol on an 11-hour transatlantic flight? The entertainment options were limited, especially if you didn't bring your own device with the Air Canada app installed as there were no screens in the seats. The aircraft interior was dated and worn. The crew were curt and not helpful. I just expected better from the national airline of Canada."
Pros: "The crew were nice."
Cons: "It was just a long flight. Food was mediocre. Not a lot of elbow room to eat."
Cons: "The overall service was poor. One male flight attendant was very rude and disrespectful to two elderly passengers. It was NOT David. Charging $10 for entertainment was is terrible!!! Restrooms were filthy!!!"
Pros: "Comfortable ride and on time"
Cons: "Compared to the flight over with Lufthansa, the food, drinks and treatment by the flight attendants was not nearly as good."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "No food served on a 5.5 hour flight."
Pros: "Service was good. Friendly and responsive."
Cons: "Food was very mediocre. Entertainment was ok once you figured out how to load the app, but there were fewer choices of content than I expected. More importantly, this was only two of five AC flights we had on this trip that departed on time, and when we got to the gate, the plane was stopped 10 feet short of the gate, so everyone had to reseat so the plane could be towed to the gate. I was really surprised at the consistent delays across the board."
Cons: "movie selection is poor and using your own device isnt that enjoyable. Girl at counter was demeaning."
Cons: "There was a yappy dog on the flight which the owner kept outside of the kennel for much of the flight. This is a serious security and health safety breach. One of the flight attendants said "I have a dog so I understand" and let he continue to kee the dog outside the kennel. Flight from hell."
Pros: "The staff were friendly even though the flight was completely full"
Pros: "We didn't die, so that's a plus. Flight staff were nice and attentive"
Cons: "Seriously, no personal tv's. The ticket prices were already expensive, but an addition cost to rent an iPad? That's crazy! Also, your wifi on the plane isn't strong enough to download the app, forcing people to rent the iPads. I see what you're doing, air canada, and it sucks. Next trip to Europe will definitely not be with your airline!"
Cons: "11 hour flight with no feasible entertainment options."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The seats were hard and not comfortable. There was no entertainment on back of the seats."
Cons: "Cramped, bathroom smelled and no mvies unless you brought your own tablet or rented one which they didnt inform us of ahead of the flight"
Pros: "Ok so I download the app and horrible content. Not alot of options and then you have to rent an iPad? They should b giving.those.out free"
Pros: "I was able to use my iPhone, good thing I had an iPhone"
Cons: "I wasn't told to download the app before I got on the plane. It was a ten hour flight with limited entertainment on my iPhone. I was rebooked on SAS with my flight to Europe. SAS Entertainment and Food was much better than AirCanadas Entertainmnet and Food on the long flight from Montreal to Copenhagen."
Pros: "That this flight wasn't as bad as the rest of my trip with them."
Cons: "no room , overpriced, poor entertainment, old plane, dirty bathroom, no personal fan/ air vent, so so food."
Pros: "I can't think of anything I'd really like an Air Canada . Even when they initially told me I needed to buy the wine and finally gave me one bottle for free, it really tasted like vinegar . I couldn't drink it ,"
Cons: "The worst part of thiis experience with Air Canada was the fact that there was no entertainment on board . They are supposedly switching to this system where you are supposed to download the Air Canada entertainment app on your phone or your tablet to be able to watch anything . Even though I supposedly had free Wi-Fi in The Athens airport, I was unable to download the app so I spent 11 hours with nothing to do on my way to Montreal. I wonder what they expect elderly or very young flyers to do . Most of these don't have tablets or smart phones . They did have some tablets for rent for $10, but not enough for everyone. Would not recall mend this airline for a transatlantic flights without checking whether the airplane has onboard entertainment first ."
Pros: "Really friendly crew."
Cons: "The plane doesn't have an entertainment system and the seats are uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly."
Cons: "The seats were very small. I was flying Premium Economy, so it was tolerable, but my daughters were flying economy with very hard seats, very little room, no snacks and no entertainment. It was the Gulag! I can't imagine it being worse for them. On a short domestic flight, it may be tolerable, but for a long international flight across the pond, it was a nightmare! Also, please stop serving those hot pockets as a snack and please stop charging for potato chips and snacks unless you plan to serve a substantial meal! A 400 calorie meal is not going to keep anyone satisfied for 10 hours!"
Pros: "Plenty of beverages provided and friendly crew."
Cons: "Entertainment app had to be downloaded prior to take-off to access many of the entertainment features such as movies."
Cons: "Lack of entertainment . Unfriendly staff. Flight was long and crew did not ask passengers to close shades in order to sleep."
Cons: "Delays,multiple gate changes, poor waiting areas for express flights!!!"
Cons: "They need bottled water. Flight was so dry and they were serving tap water. How cheap"
Cons: "Waited 1 hour for my bag only to be told that it was put on a different flight. They couldn't tell me this during my flight or while I was waiting? They said it would arrive by morning the next day. I call multiple times to get an update and no one has an update. 6pm rolls around without a single update so tired of calling I drive back to the airport to get a hold of a person. Person says delivery company has it and gives a phone number. Call delivery company and they have no idea what i'm talking about say to go back to the airport. Bag finally shows up 12 hours after expected without a single call or update. Never flying air canada again!"
Pros: "I liked how you had movies to watch although they were outdated. The bathrooms were okay."
Cons: "You have to download an entertainment app and if no one tells you to then you are screwed. The food was awful, like baby food for adults. The chairs need to be able to move back more. The flight delays are just wrong."
Pros: "The crew was really nice and on top of things. Prompt service and very pleasant."
Cons: "The wifi movies and tv were not captioned in English for the deaf and hard of hearing. Accessibility was not provided."
Cons: "Have you heard of an International flight without entertainment? That's just the surface. Our flight from Athens to Toronto was delayed 4hrs causing us to miss our connection to NYC. When customer service was called for assistance to get another flight, we found there were no flights out after 8 pm. I appreciate the vouchers for food and hotel. But after 35hr of traveling to NYC we come to find that our luggage was left in Toronto. Traveling with Air Canada was a series of poor customer care and negligence. I was very disappointed."
Cons: "There was no tv and one of the flight attendants was very rude. She acted like it was a chore to talk to us and was rude to other passengers as well."
Pros: "The flight arrived early"
Cons: "The chicken dish was terrible and gave me stomach upset"
Pros: "Good pilot. Take off and landing were very good. Clear announcements. plane was a comfortable temperature."
Cons: "Not organised on boarding procedures. Anyone could have gotten thro. Flight attendants wouldn't come by to pick up trash often enough. No movies or TV to watch on an 11 hour flight."
Cons: "Food was terrible - no movie screens - just their ipads, crew wasn't that friendly"
Cons: "The food was the worst. Did not feel it was even edible. For an 11 hour international flight there were zero amenities. If you wanted to watch a movie, you had to pay $10 per person for an iPad. You could not even use your own & link to their wifi unless you are in their earned points program."
Pros: "The idea of READ BOOKS via the in-plane entertainment system. Very limited book choices so not of interest, and often interrupted as the system kept dropping. Great opportunity though to expand Vs boring and mindless TV shows and low rated straight to video view movies."
Cons: "Delayed, food (best not to touch), seat PC power charge plugs didn't work, was NOT allowed to use wireless PC mouse !!! (1st ever in 20 years of off-line PC use to work on planes), the seats were old and smelled, the in-plane access to movies plug-in didn't work, the TV shows kept disconnecting, crew had no idea how to correct, Montreal airport was dirty and poorly maintained, the one restaurant with service had the worst food I ever ate with promised internet access and PC / Phone charging facilities NOT working. Amazing stuff !!. So awful it now seems funny !...Almost missed my days in and out Sanaa Airport in Yemen with Yemen Air !!!"
Cons: "Barely any entertainment for the 11 hour flight because no one advised me to download their app to access their small selection. Also, first international flight that wanted to charge for beer (highest price I've seen)."
Pros: "Attendants were conscientious, hospitable."
Pros: "You had the latest HBO shows"
Cons: "Staff was a bit rude in at check in to get onboard as I was one of the last passengers to board the plane."
Pros: "Everything was great in the premium seats (first row)."
Cons: "The seats could use a foot rest to help passengers sleep better."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment available"
