Since it was a long journey should have better service and address all comfort and concerns for passengers.

My luggage was left at doha nd flight landed houston. Horrible experince i had this time.

Qatar airways Customer service was terrible especially in Baghdad office! They were very unprofessional, helpless and very rude!

Pros: "Cleanliness, orderliness, and cabin service."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by about 45 minutes to Madrid, due to which I have missed my next flight."
Pros: "Finally the staggered deboarding. It feels like COVID has actually disciplined us passengers this time and kept us from behaving like unruly cattle once the plane halts."
Cons: "Initial confusion at boarding with paperwork and onward passage through Athens,GREECE. Once again the airport teams reached out to my colleagues and I ahead of time and managed to resolve to satisfaction. Perhaps reservation team can trigger a call to the passengers while they are still at home asking for the documentation validation electronically over a secured database.... just a thought. Again, being a part of the Experience and Innovation team, travel and tourism needs less human interaction, now more than ever. While we digitalized the obvious, the exceptions can remain humanized."
Pros: "Excellent crew and great food."
Pros: "Crew was terrific. Great service. New aircraft are comfortable too."
Cons: "Food. Meals are of poor quality. Bland in taste and rubbery texture."
Pros: "Amazing staff, clean plane, good food, comfortable seats in business"
Cons: "Plane was very warm. Uncomfortably warm Movie selection was boring. Too many Marvel films which was ridiculous."
Pros: "Friendly crew (didn’t go above or beyond but polite and accommodated to simple requests). Plenty of meals/snacks and drinks offered."
Cons: "The seats barely recline backward which really meant I was basically upright trying to sleep for 14 hours on one leg and 6 hours on the next. My luggage was lost, despite being promised it would be delivered that day I had to wait 24 hours."
Pros: "The Crew were excellent, friendly, professional and attentative."
Cons: "We checked in seven and a half hours before this flight as we had just flown from Melbourne Australia to Qatar landing that same day at 0435am in the morning with this flight being delayed from 805 am to 12 noon then to find that we had been allocated the last row right at the toilets. Horrible."
Cons: "Really we enjoyed this fly"
Pros: "Everything!!!"
Pros: "Very poor Service on a 16 hour flight"
Pros: "aircraft A350 , food choices , Doha airport , Staff attitude and willingness to help ."
Pros: "The staff was very helpful went above and beyond to help. Everything was smooth from boarding to landing plus everything in between."
Pros: "The other two seats in my row were not occupied"
Cons: "The excessive and second security checking at Doha"
Cons: "food options exhausted pls tell ground catering to provide more food Plane was freezing on international flights and at 3:50am in the morning pls provide blankets to all"
Pros: "Entertainment system good,"
Cons: "Boarding was late, seating very cramped."
Pros: "Polite crew, food was pretty good."
Cons: "Did not have the duty free item I pre-ordered. I asked the crew 4 times about it, four times because they said that they would check but they never got back to me to tell me that it was out of stock; until I pressed the issue."
Cons: "Display showed TV news, not boarding Info. Boarding Zones were announced only once, if you missed it stuck in security you have no way of finding out."
Pros: "I liked their customer service, food, and the flight attendants were friendly. They have a very nice shopping mall at Hamad International Airport in Doha, Qatar."
Cons: "They have less space to move your feet and after a while your left knee begins to hurt because you have been sitting in the plane for a long time. Whenever I asked to get a drink of water or soft drinks, it took the flight attendant 10-15 minutes to arrive with my drink. I understand she was occupied with other duties, but she should have made me her priority."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Nothing to be liked on this Flight"
Cons: "Poor Service, they were even out of food."
Pros: "The food was great with three options for each meal and there were a lot of options for in flight entertainment"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "The food was very poor"
Pros: "Entertainment was good. Food was good, I got the Hindu vegetarian. Also service from Nagpur to Doha is very convenient."
Cons: "It was mostly a good experience."
Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"
Pros: "The planes were nice and the crew was nice."
Cons: "Every single flight we were on was delayed, with no explanation. The food was good on the plane, but almost every meal option I wanted was out by the time the crew got to my seat."
Pros: "Qatar personal ground services they did the best they could in a difficult environment such as GVA airport. Cabin Crew FABULOUS Quality of space GOOD Food EXCELLENT Looking forward in flying again with QATAR AIRWAYS Thanks Tony Manias"
Cons: "Although for some technical reasons the flight was considerably delayed, there was no action taken either by Qatar Airways or Geneva airport authorities to make the waiting more confortable!! The passengers of economy class and business class were all stacked in the same space (it looked more of a hangar...) Access to this space was only possible by stairs (No elevator - No escalator !!) No drinks offered, not enough chairs to sit and wait......etc The main blame is to put on Geneva Airport Authorities. This airport is a total mess From the moment one arrives at the airport area (access - parking - ..) till the moment of boarding... It should be boycotted by major and quality companies such as Qatar Airways and many others."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "The customer service is terrible. They refused to accommodate me for a 19 hour layover with a complimentary airport hotel stay, claiming there was an earlier flight--that was still 12 hours away, that I would have to pay to book anyway. Pure scam to get you to pay to upgrade your flight, pay for hotel or be condemned to stay in there airport for a whole day. Never ever again! Don't fly them!"
Pros: "Great on board bar"
Pros: "I liked the pilot and staff. The workers were very friendly. P.S I loved the food"
Pros: "Boarding, the welcome on board, the food choice and quality were all excellent. The seat was comfortable and I got a few hours sleep. The entertainment screen was big and clear, and the choice of films was good."
Cons: "The choice of films and tv programmes, was good, but before watching each one i chose, I had to endure a couple off minutes of an advert- the same one every time."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Out of mango juice and the plane was too old."
Cons: "I was seated between two overweight/obese passengers and as such was very uncomfortable throughout the long-haul flight. There was very little room to move as their body habitus spilt over onto my seating area and occupied the arm space. There needs to be serious consideration to make it mandatory for overweight/obese passengers to purchase two seats to accommodate their size."
Pros: "Staff courtesy."
Pros: "It was not a full flight. It was ok."
Cons: "Well, I noticed when the person in front of me reclined their seat, I had a hard time adjusting the entertainment screen so I could see it properly."
Pros: "When we flew into Melbourne it was not a happy experience. Seats were cramped and arm rests wouldn't raise. The flight out, even though on the same model plane, was better. There was more room and we could raise the arm rests. For a 13+ hour flight that makes a big difference."
Cons: "Because the tickets listed the same type of plane in both the bad and not so bad flight, it is very hard to know what we're going to get. I'd love to be able to plan to avoid the bad experience, but if they use the same plane in two configurations, there isn't enough information to do so."
Pros: "Everything was good ... we were on time .. no delay so .. perfect !"
Pros: "Food came out 1 am melb time ,2 hours after departure ."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Poor management didn't provide a hotel for layovers more than 12 hrs"
Pros: "Very friendly flight staff."
Pros: "Food and drink options. Courteous."
Cons: "Smells from others"
Pros: "Flight was very good"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Not a lot -14 hrs in cattle class is no fun."
Cons: "Toilet out of order from beginning of very long flight. Food ordinary. Doha airport transfer awful."
Pros: "The crew. Hana was the best. She is one of the crew members. The Korean female."
Cons: "the person next to me was load and annoin. Seat was crammed and was not comfortable AT All."
Pros: "On time, comfortable, decent food"
Cons: "I found the bed rather hard for sleeping on my side. When I awoke, I was stiff and sore."
Cons: "Flight got delayed and missed short connection in Doha. Had to fly to JFK instead. No compensation."
Pros: "Crew was great,"
Cons: "The seats are too small for 5 hours of flight time."
Cons: "I don’t like how they brought a snack cart thru where you could buy things, making it appear like it was the ONLY option. However, shortly after that, they gave everyone a free sandwich, bag of chips and drinks.... was pissed I spent $14 on snacks that I didn’t need to. Also, the flight originally was scheduled to leave Kauai at 1:45 and somewhere along the line it got changed to 1:15 but I didn’t know that somehow... glad we made it on time... Did not like how you had to have your own device in order to have movies or entertainment... pretty lame. This airline has so much potential! It was just little things that could have been much better"
Pros: "Hawaiian Air is very well run. Just a good experience compared to the other carriers... I wish Delta and United's fleets were as clean and efficient."
Cons: "Well, we sat next to two babies. I think what Japan air is doing is right."
Pros: "Nice, friendly & informative"
Cons: "Honolulu cookies!"
Pros: "The food, seat comfort, entertainment system and departure on time with an early arrival. I had lost my family heirloom money clip in the seat. The crew sent the flight agent Justin back to meet me at the gate and he went in and looked twice finding it on the second trip in."
Pros: "Great service."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything was Okrrrrrrrr!"
Pros: "Great plane - new"
Cons: "I could always use more legroom"
Cons: "They served me a vomit sandwich!! It was a chicken pesto sandwich that I thought was chicken salad but there was pieces of chicken in it. I think... Was gross. And I was hungry!"
Pros: "Awesome crew. They are friendly and professional"
Cons: "Arrived a little late but not a big deal"
Pros: "Non stop very good"
Cons: "Served no vegetarian lunch just chicken"
Pros: "The staff on the flight was great."
Cons: "Screaming babies everywhere."
Cons: "Major delayed flight and only Compensation was free promo code for shitty entertainment app which doesn’t even work. Had a family emergency and needed to make a connecting flight which I missed and the flight attendant completed ignored my request to assist getting off the plane as fast as possible. My crew assistance button was on for over an hour and they completely ignore you."
Cons: "Rerouted in airport to different checkin after standing in a long time. Not Hawaiian airlines issue but poor management on the part of the airport staff."
Pros: "I got home safely. The flight was quick and smooth."
Cons: "They take such pride in serving a free meal, but don’t provide any options for special diets, either on board, or prior to check in. The magazine shows beautiful salads but they didn’t have anything fresh at all. The flight attendant came through with lunch sandwiches and told me I could buy something from the snack menu after they had cleaned up after the lunch service. She returned with the menu (which was all junk food) and never came back to see if I wanted to order anything. The plane was absolutely frigid, there was no entertainment."
Cons: "I attempted to change my seat but realised there was an upgrade fee. I was then unable to change it back on the way there. The crew gave me the seat on the way there because their system was not working correctly and didn't tell me I would have to pay for it on the way back. Upon my return I was unable to print out my return flight boarding pass without paying for the upgrade."
Cons: "Plane was dirty and I was freezing during the flight even with a couple of layers on! Now I’m sick"
Pros: "The Service, crew and flight were all good, very good landing."
Cons: "The flat bed seating was uncomfortable, I was squashed up and happy to get out of the seat on arrival. I was seated in 1C"
Pros: "HA is flying an Airbus A3231 Neo between Oakland and Maui. It's a single-aisle aircraft. The economy section is more comfortable than any other aircraft I've flown. Not dramatically different, but the little things add up. Back support in the seats are vastly improved. Under-seat storage is actually usable for a change. Overhead bins are capacious and easily accessible. Great choice!"
Pros: "The stewardesses were all extra attentive even with all of the young children on board."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Large plane. Good hospitality."
Cons: "No vegetarian option for food. Pay for movies and TV."
Pros: "I fly HA often to Honolulu because they have 2 seat rows and provide complimentary meals on the long flight."
Pros: "The kiosk was out and no one was available to ask questions on the floor"
Cons: "Rough flight. too much turbulence!"
Pros: "As I indicated it was OK!"
Pros: "A mechanical issue meant our late night Sydney to Honolulu flight was cancelled. As a consequence, we were on the runway from 9:30 until 11:30 while they tried to fix the problem. Then we were at the airport until 1:00 am getting a hotel voucher and re-ticketed. Unfortunately, instead of having a day in Honolulu to deal with jet lag before going on to San Diego, we lost our Hilton reservation in Waikiki. We ended up getting a direct flight to LAX and on to San Diego. I will say the crew attempted to work with us. Daniel made an executive decision and got us on United. But no stopover in Hawaii."
Pros: "Clean,good service"
Cons: "Crowded unless paid for extra leg room, food isn’t that great, cabin kept too cold... trying to sell blankets? No free entertainment?"
Pros: "The flight attendants were happy and wanted to help out unlike most airlines."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The flight staff was amazing! It is really hard to fly 15 hours in one day but each flight was filled with amazing flight attendants and pilots!"
Pros: "I like that they actually serve food, snacks, drinks, complimentary glass of wine, and everyone is nice!"
Cons: "I had my own entertainment so I was fine with my iPad, but some airlines have tv's for everyone! Their movie screens played Hawaiian music videos, after one I was bored! Too many waterfalls, which is something I never thought I'd say"
Cons: "The baggage took almost an hour to be retrieved. Specifically the staff was inadequate to unload baggage. The last things to be returned were all of the car seats, meaning the already late flight for families waited over an hour to leave the airport."
Pros: "The fold-able headrests that allow you to fall asleep."
Cons: "Arrived late due to an accident on the road. In Kauai, there is some kind of policy where they shut down the road for 3 hours if there's a bad accident. There's only one road to the airport from the north to the south shore. We were stuck due to this and therefore barely made it on time. We tried to explain this to the staff and asked if they could get us through quicker or check us in so we wouldn't miss the flight, and they just said we were out of luck. Weren't helpful at all. After having to scan our bags a second time by the airline (after TSA), we were dead last in line, and were told we lost our seats because we didn't check in on time. Therefore we were seated apart, and I was put further back in the plane very close to the pregnant woman with gas and the babies who screamed the entire flight. I had a window seat originally and lost it due to no fault of my own. Someone else was also sitting in my newly assigned seat and when I asked the staff to help us sort it out, they actually asked me to move since he was with his wife. After getting on the plane, we were forced to check our bags that we just got on with and it was a major hold up for everyone trying to get seated. Then, after landing, exhausted, and ready to go home, we had to wait for the bags to come out of the checked baggage claim area. We waited 1 hour and 10 minutes to get our bags because they were dead last and there was some issue with the conveyor belt. This is really poor planning on their part and made the trip even more unenjoyable. To top it off, my girlfriend left her phone on the plane and it was turned in to the staff. When we drove an hour back to get it the next day we were able, we were turned away because they have some new and separate office that is only open during obscure hours that the staff weren't even aware of. We are still trying to figure out how to get the phone back and have called several numbers telling us to call other numbers. It shouldn't be this difficult. I know the phone is in there somewhere. Lastly, food was gross. Don't think airlines will ever get this right. It'd be better to just serve quality mixed greens salads as you don't have to microwave them and they'd be fresh."
Pros: "I missed the Kahului flight so my second leg started in Honolulu. Pilot aborted the take off half way down the runway. Said there was an indication light that said the brakes had heated up and it would be 15 minutes to let them cool. Then said we would have go back to gate, saying it would be a little longer. These "little longer" efforts went on for just short of 3 hours! When we got in on the other end the gate was unavailable and we were forced to wait another hour on the ground there. 9 FREAKING hours in that plane next to gal and her toddler in her lap... bummer for me, but this poor gal missed her connection to CLEVELAND... gave me a perspective of what REALLY SUCKS."
Pros: "Check in was a breeze. All was on time. The ride was smooth safe."
Cons: "Didn't like the complimentary "stir fry" chicken and rotten cabbage salad. Guess they had to give it away cause if you paid for it you would want a refund and a barf bag. No movies anymore? I guess we were spoiled by Alaskans free wifi and downloads from their app on the flight there. But if there was any entertainment we couldn't have heard if over the crying children. The attendants were sour pusses, not a smile among them. They gave attitude with their service. I kind of felt their pain with the 15-20 screaming toddlers that were uncomfortable and begging for help. How about getting rid of the first class area and making a day care area where children can move about rather than parents up and down the aisles sharing the misery with us all. Didn't have the courtesy to alert us to our baggage terminal. I don't think I will ever get used to paying for my small bag to be stowed rather than fill up the passenger area."
Pros: "The staff of Hawaiian offered us drinks (more than once), a snack and a meal. The leg room was generous and bathrooms clean and we'll stocked."
Cons: "The boarding process was slow."
Pros: "Performed as expected without any thrills flying us back to OAK from Maui, Hawaii. Gate personnel's'attentiveness and tagging of roller-board luggage expedited boarding, and minimized wasted time and attempts to jam luggage into the plane's smaller overhead bins. Well done!"
Cons: "Inexperienced flying passengers pulling on the back of my seat each time she got up to use the lavatory. Observing timid passengers trying to eat during food service while the the row in front them had their seats fully reclined. Fellow flyers need to be more cognizant of simple courtesy and etiquette while flying."
Pros: "Crew and ease of boarding."
Cons: "Deplaning in Oakland"
Pros: "Relatively comfortable seats. Good crew. Free glass of wine."
Cons: "No meal options (we're vegan). Only old overhead video with no movie options unless you rent one of the few tables they have on the plane for a 5+ hour flight. Huge box filling a third of my food space for what? There are also no USB or electric plugs for power."
Pros: "i didnt have to worry about starving or being thirsty on the plane"
Pros: "The crew treats you well"
Cons: "Seats are cramped, food is pretty poor, and the old planes don't have the movie screens at every seat,and there is not much to watch. Sound system is also pretty poor"
Pros: "Everything else was great"
Pros: "The crew on the plane were very accommodating and friendly."
Cons: "The people at the check-in gate were very slowly and not efficient."
Pros: "Really friendly and helpful gate staff and flight crew. Food was reasonable for airplane food. Comfortable compared to other airlines, which cram you in these days. We didn't even bother with the entertainment system - between the choices and prices we'd rather read books."
Pros: "There was a lot to like. Very comfortable seats in coach on the A330 with decent legroom. They served free hot dinner with a complimentary glass of wine! Friendly crew too. Highly recommend Hawaiian."
Cons: "My wife has a broken ankle. They were disorganized boarding the folks who needed assistance and getting them off the plane. There were several people in wheelchairs so maybe they were overwhelmed but they should have done better."
Pros: "The flight was very smooth (kudos to the Pilot). The dinner was delicious (best I've had on Hawaiian Airlines). Most of the crew members were very kind and courteous. Even friendly to the crying kids. Loved the selection of entertainment that was readily available. That definitely helped with the long flight."
Cons: "There was one specific crew member that was just unfriendly & looked irritated most of the flight. Especially when he came around pouring water & to pick up trash."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly & courteous. Flight seemed shorter than the expected 4-1/2 hours of misery."
Cons: "1. At the airport in Maui, once we used the self-check-in to print our boarding passes and luggage check-in tags other airlines would have had someone take you luggage from you and you're done. Here, we now have to take our luggage and get into a long line where we then take it to another counter. 2. Why were there twice as many people in the TSA pre-check line as in the regular line? My son and his GF did not have TSA pre-check, yet they went through security much faster than my wife & I. 3. Seats too narrow. I was snugly fit in, and I had to stand in order to get something out of my front pant's pocket. 4. Not enough legroom and no way to stretch my leg (and my very painful knee). We sat in row 17. It was right side bulkhead on 2-3-2 configuration. There was no way to stretch out my knee. The configuration of the inside of the aircraft placed the bulkhead wall too close to the seat. My leg was at about 70 degrees the entire flight (0 degrees is completely straight). Notably, the same row on the left side of the plane had about another 12 inches of leg-room. That's just the way the plane was configured. 5. No WiFi 6. Entertainment device rip-off. I wasn't interested in renting an entertainment device, but I was offended by their offer. If you signed up for it at the desk before boarding you would pay $15 and would get the device 20 minutes after take-off. If you waited until you were on the plane you would pay $17. The worse part: YOU WOULDN'T GET THE DEVICE UNTIL 2 HOURS INTO THE FLIGHT!!!"
Pros: "Not much. The crew members' smiles were nice. That's about it."
Cons: "So cold! I asked 4 times for the temperature to be adjusted. Each time the crew member said that the temp was adjusted, and it would be getting warmer. Let me be clear: IT NEVER GOT WARMER! Furthermore, Hawaiian Airlines had the nerve to charge econ seats $10 per blanket. Even for babies! And we even heard a toddler say, "Mom, it's sooooo cold!""
Cons: "would like complimentary TV channels and movies"
Pros: "It was all great!"
Cons: "Nothing at all."
Pros: "The spacious seats are wonderful. The cleanliness! The movie selections. The incredibly professional, courteous, kind flight attendants. Free meal! (it's a long flight) Being able to buy a half bottle of red wine. The humor of the gate attendant during and after we boarded was a treat. It was a fully booked flight but managed to avoid that pushy, hectic atmosphere while boarding and after. Very peaceful, easy flight along the lines of what Virgin and Jet Blue introduced a decade ago. The flight ended up feeling like part of the vacation. Will always choose Hawaiian in the future."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing."
Pros: "Crew was very rude both to and from Sydney. Always made people feel like they were a burden and they didn’t want to even be there. Will never fly Delta again, especially internationally."
Cons: "Hire employees that at least pretend they enjoy their job."
Pros: "tCrew was good. On one side of airplane in main cabin, bathroom was twice size of normal airplane bathrooms. This was welcome."
Cons: "Seats were reasonable."
Cons: "I really like more legs room and comfort and crew member were very good and helpful. Regarding food I say it’s just ok."
Pros: "Comfortable and clean plane, crew professional and nice."
Pros: "The entire thing, food, service, and ..."
Cons: "More room in each seat"
Pros: "Delta always does a superior job - domestically and internationally!"
Cons: "Everything was perfect!"
Pros: "Early and middle seat was open!"
Cons: "Coffee tasted like fish. :("
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "- Put a special meal request. Meal request (vegan vegetarian) was confirmed on my boarding pass. However, when service came, flight attendant informed me that "I don't have any left. sorry". So I went 15 hours without food. - Ceiling light was "broken" and falling off. The light would not turn off, so I went 15 hours with no sleep. Overall very rude and low standard service."
Pros: "Great entertainment, nice leg room!"
Cons: "Food was a disgrace - very low standards. Ate only snacks through the entire flight"
Cons: "Not much- pretty great flight"
Pros: "I love flying Delta and my flight to Australia was incredible. I like the fact that I can check two bags free and the free inflight messaging and entertainment. Some of the staff were very polite and friendly."
Cons: "The seat I was in was broken. It moved and I was stuck sitting on metal. There was no leg room. The plane used going to Australia was a lot roomier this plane was old. Some of the flight attendants were very unfriendly and seemed to be bothered by the fact they had to do their job. The entertainment system had to be rebooted multiple times and the usb on the seats didn’t work. They ran out of food during lunch."
Pros: "Attendant was very good at explaining ground staff members actions to a fellow passenger"
Cons: "Left 30 minutes late from SLC."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, and I appreciate the eye shades. There was a tremendous amount of turbulence on the flight that seemed to last for hours without a break. I have flown this route many times before and don’t remember turbulence that lasted so long without a change. The seatbelt sign was not on and the plane felt like a small boat in choppy waters."
Cons: "The food tastef awful and was minimal."
Pros: "Flight was on time, flight crew was great"
Cons: "Seats weren't very comfortable and the iPod chargers were broke in 2 of our 3 seat row"
Cons: "Entertainment Poor. Not to many movie for 14 hours trip"
Cons: "The monitors kept on freezing"
Cons: "I wasn’t able to select my seats and choose a meal before getting to the airport and hence had a middle seat and no special meal"
Pros: "food was pretty good."
Cons: "a bit squashy in the seat. Inability to go online and select my seat without having to ring Delta and they do it."
Pros: "Boarding was quick, gate agent upgraded my middle seat to an exit row window for free (or so I thought), decent movie options"
Cons: "Some of the crew seemed a bit grumpy, was not given the seat I was told I got, not much leg room in economy, was given wrong meal, first meal was taken away without being asked, second meal was stale (french toast), flight was a bit warm, bathrooms not stocked"
Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "I used the call button for the attendant and no one came for a long time"
Pros: "Empty seats, room to spread out"
Pros: "It got me there in one piece. USB ports, entertainment system a good distraction."
Cons: "Terrible food, aisles too tight, seats not very comfortable. 777’s are very noisy. Visas on arrival a ridiculous disaster- 100’s of people standing in lines for over an hour while 3 people slowly stamp your passport. Know that is not the airline’s fault!"
Cons: "Due to the earthquakes, the film festival I was going to was cancelled. Ten days prior to the flight I called AeroMexico to cancel and they said there would be a cancellation penalty, which was fine. When I tried to redeem my credit, they said there was also an additional "No-show fee" even though I called to cancel 10 days prior, which left a total of $70 credit after all their penalties. I called and emailed to complain but they did nothing but pass me to someone else who was equally unhelpful. I will never fly AeroMexico for any reason in the future."
Pros: "They solved my name matching problem with calm and efficiency, so I made it to my conference. Thank you !!"
Pros: "Lots of water being offered. Lucky to have extra seat for comfort."
Cons: "It seemed longer than the estimated time. The food was bland. My husband's entertainment system worked, mine didn't. We had hit a lot of rough air during time over Pacific. Would have been nice if the pilot would have given more information."
Pros: "Landed from Sydney at 8am. Flew to San Francisco at 4pm. Long wait. Not good."
Cons: "Landed in Los Angeles at 8am. Left for San Francisco at 4pm. Aweful."
Pros: "service and accommodations."
Cons: "Ran out of a meal that I wanted. One flight attendant forgot to hand me utensils with my dinner meal."
Pros: "For a short flight, they gave it drinks and snacks."
Pros: "Nothing quite as nice as first class. Ravioli for dinner was tasty. The browned butter gelato is amazing. That's why I only fly Delta and I fly every week. While other airlines decline, Delta shines. Thanks to the awesome crew."
Pros: "Crew was courtesy"
Cons: "1hour delay from departing LAX runway - not good"
Pros: "Staff on the plane was courteous although they skipped half of us for snacks & forgot some requests for water"
Cons: "Was not able to check in online. Was not able to select my seat online. I was told I would be able to do both of these things. Spent 30 minutes trying to find a number to someone at Delta to check in & select seat. I was in Australia & all Delta offices were closed because it was Sunday. Although I had an internationally calling plan, no calls to Delta US would go through. finally found someone through a back channel that would help me. We boarded an hour late, and staff would not answer any of our questions about what was going on or how late we would arrive (they sped up the fight so that we landed on time). Flight ran out of drinking WATER after the first service. Half of our section (Economy Plus) was skipped for snacks. An unruly child was allowed to scream for almost the entire flight & was running up & down the aisles. NOTHING was said to the parents by staff members. Was absolutely the worst behaving child with who I've had to fly."
Pros: "Flight was delayed for over 6 hours. Not an ideal way to spend the day."
Pros: "Cabin crew were excellent and so friendly and down to earth."
Cons: "The seats are very hard but I find this with all the airlines now"
Pros: "I liked: After check-in, I was given luggage sticker and told that luggage will be collected in Hyderabad which is my last destination, same was printed the sticker."
Cons: "I didn't like: While transition from Mumbai to Hyderabad, i was told to collect the luggage in Mumbai and check-in again which made so worried and confused."
Pros: "Troy, Karee, and all of the staff on board were amazing! One of the best flights I have ever been on. Hope they are the crew for my flight home."
Cons: "Economy seating was cramped and painful. I sat in a window seat and couldn't hardly move freely enough to get my seatbelt on; and I am a petite female!!"
Pros: "I'm an American ex-pat who travels to and from between the US and Australia. I do whatever I can to fly on Australian rather than American airlines, as they are always much better in every regard. But in this case it wasn't feasible, and I found myself on a Delta flight. I'd say the overall experience was somewhere between okay-good. Nothing major to complain about, but nothing to rave about either. The entertainment options were decent. I appreciated the variety of newly released movies. However, I would have liked a greater selection of TV shows, and the availability of more episodes. I also appreciated the availability of internet access, but I don't understand why it has to be quite *so* pricey. Surely they could make a bit more on greater volume if they dropped the price a bit. I didn't purchase access, but I would have if it were 40-50% cheaper. The comfort of the plane seemed the same as any of the alternatives. Boarding and deplaning were as they should be."
Cons: "The service from the crew though was simply ok. They were just friendly enough not to be rude, but no more than that. Virgin Australia and Qantas consistently have much happier crews, who make you feel like a dignified guest, even in economy. The food was average at best, and they served two meals where the Australian airlines would serve three on the same flight. They also offered less in the way of snacks and drink refills. It seemed like they were cutting corners here, which I don't appreciate on a 15 hour flight. Also, they said they "proudly serve Starbucks coffee". After drinking it, I don't think they should be proud of that! Again, overall it was a decent experience. Nothing flashy, but nothing too bad either. If the costs are comparable for your flight, you should certainly choose one of the Australian carriers. You'll get better service from the crew and better food. The one caveat, however, is that Delta has WiFi, whereas at the date of writing this, the Australian carriers do not. While access is exorbitant, if you really need to get some work done on the plane, you might choose Delta for this reason alone."
Pros: "We barely got on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding "red shirt" saved us. We are a band on tour and thanks to her we made the gig"
Pros: "Decent food"
Cons: "Bad delay Flight attendants not friendly"
Pros: "Fairly comfortable and uneventful. The flight was delayed for an hour and a half, so we arrived in L.A. later than expected. The crew was excellent and friendly, Boarding was a bit crazy but in the end we all found our seat. My flight attendant was terrific. She did all she could to fix the problem to no avail, Kudos to her."
Cons: "The trip was okay. Unfortunantly my movie player quit after the first movie so I was left to reading. The coffee was horrible but the food was great. Good choices in the menu. I did get a $50.00 rebate due to the faulty video player, but seriously, what can you do with $50..00 on Delta?"
Pros: "Entertainment was fine."
Cons: "Food variety for lactose intolerant. Crew was bare able."
Cons: "Connection flight from LAX to Seattle was dropped off of booking completely. When Delta was able to fix the changes in Sydney Australia they put my husbands ticket as a standby instead of putting him in an assigned seat and reported that they couldn't fix it that we would have to wait and get to LAX before the changes could be made again. There was a one and a half hour flight delay from LAX to Seattle. From Sydney Australia to LAX entertainment system didn't work the whole entire flight, they were screaming children the entire flight, and Delta had double booked seats on several different people. There were no apologies and no compensation for any of the incidences."
Pros: "First flight I have ever flown that offered free beverages of all kinds. Food wasn't too bad. Entertainment choices were outstanding. Pilot was like a tour guide."
Cons: "Cramped space for 14 hours. Some crew were somewhat grumpy and seemed rushed, even though we had plenty of time."
Cons: "Lost luggage, 4 hours late, missed connection, had to re check in, etc."
Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "staff was very good."
Cons: "The flight was bought through Virgin Australia and without much notice, the flight was switched to Delta. The seats were amply smaller, amentities were not good (blankets and pillows). Food was terrible and was not as promised when the purchase was made through Virgin. Seats were so bad that my back and butt hurt after a couple hours. I would rather pay a couple hundred dollars more to have a quality flight experience."
Pros: "Our flight was cancelled and we had to buy $447 worth of Southwest tickets to get home. Our luggage is still missing, by the way."
Pros: "Delayed by 55 minutes in 10 or 20 minute increments as they waited for a crew."

USB plug did not work in-flight and it seemed super bumpy from start to finish. Not sure if it was because it was a much smaller plane, but I fly generally 2ce a week for work and this was by far the bumpiest and wobbliest(not sure if that is a word..haha) I've had this year. Also, in Albuquerque the gates shifted from what was on the boarding pass to what was in the terminal which caused some confusion. Then landing in Austin for my layover to Tampa the flight was delayed and then back on time on the in-app boarding pass, the gate changed too and when I got to the gate my flight was not posted. I thought I was going to miss my flight because it was supposed to have been boarding right then and I couldn't find the gate for my flight. Finally someone showed up to the desk and I was able to ask, and she confirmed that it was that gate and was delayed. There were several of us going to Tampa that were a bit stressed and confused. After all was said and done we were delayed about an hour, but it was the confusion that made things so much more stressful. I like to fly American quite a bit, and have a MC as well, and although there have been some delays, which I understand will happen, I haven't experienced this level of confusion.

Liked everything about this flight. They could have been a little more transparent as to the delay. But the pilot did get us to our connection with plenty of time to spare.

The worse.

My honest opinion is it was very good

I dreaded the flight. I was pleasantly surprised how nice the passengers and employees were. After watching the news I expected bedlam and rude people. Everyone everywhere wore masks without hesitation. There were no problems.

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "The airport experience was horrible. American Airlines did not have enough personnel on duty to process all the waiting passengers."
Cons: "Being sit at the plane for two hours and then having to deplane and board again plus further delays on the 44 minute fly to Boston made it feel eternal"
Pros: "CREW WAS GREAT AT BOARDING GATE AND IN FLIGHT."
Cons: "LEFT 30 MIN LATE, DUE TO CONNECTING FLIGHT."
Cons: "More options when flights are delayed. I understand that some things can’t be controlled but 3hrs with limited to no options is unacceptable. And boarding the flight, it’s always unorganized. A more organized line should be formed. When the groups are called to board the plane."
Pros: "We got there."
Cons: "Long delay. We were worried we would miss our connection and we had to dash to catch our next flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seat"
Cons: "Umm, maybe a tv in the headrest"
Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Plane was hot and smelly upon boarding; turbulence on landing caused delay with no updates from pilot"
Cons: "plane was too hot...AA needs to keep a lower temp and pump air through their plane...on a crowded flight like this was, claustrophobia set in. First time I ever experienced this."
Pros: "Nothing special."
Pros: "Customers service. The crew was awesome. They're good to me when I was sick."
Pros: "Easy check in, helpful staff. Great seats and lovely in-flight amenities. Most of the food was really good and quite a bit was offered during the flight. Arrived early and staff was really helpful in getting through customs."
Cons: "Weight limit on baggage was very strict. Boarding took a long time and seemed disorganized."
Pros: "Arrived safely."
Cons: "Noisy children."
Pros: "Non stop and an on time arrival after 20 min delay at phl when no gate agent could deplane previous flight. After being re-ticketed from overbooked united flight all in all not bad at all."
Cons: "They happen from time to time,... from many unassigned seats causing long gate line where several butted to the front to random noises during the flight from passengers to 6 bathroom trip guy just weird all around. Plus the multiple gate changes by PHL which are to be expected. Just a regular PHL departure,..."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Packed"
Cons: "Delay was too long - thanks. The weather was cleared but still delay for no reason."
Pros: "Boarding, comfortable seats, clean"
Cons: "Mediocre service, choice of food was down to one option (and I was on the 2nd row)"
Pros: "My wife is hypoglycemic and requires food. The flight was so early that none of the terminal restaraunts were open, nor did the plain have food for any passengers accept first class. I've purchased a box on other flights, but this one did not provide an option for a box lunch or breakfast."
Cons: "Plane was delayed over an hour!"
Pros: "The flight was smooth sailing from the beginning to the end and the meal service was good."
Cons: "A little bit of turbulence during the final descent into the airport made it a bit uncomfortable."
Cons: "flight was delayed by about 4 hrs, however that worked to my advantage bcos of the inordinate delay in Immigration clearance in Miami."
Pros: "It Was Great. Flight Attendant Rita Was Amazing. The Flight Was Quite And Relaxing."
Cons: "That It Didn’t Last Longer. It Was A Short Trip."
Pros: "Not much. Standard flight."
Cons: "Cramped seats, unintelligible announcements, battered by credit card promotions."
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Would you like a beverage? Not unless you asked and that was only if you could get her attention. Truly felt like a second class citizen in this fight"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "An S80? Really? This plane was older than me! Horrible plane! The crew looked like they had been up since 4 am. Looked exhausted and unfriendly. I do want to clarify that this was an American Airlines operated plane, not etihad."
Pros: "Food was ok and options for entertainment"
Cons: "I was sold a British Airways Flight and got AA"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The food was so so nothing special"
Pros: "VERY GOOD"
Cons: "I was unable to choose my seat, so my boyfriend and I had to fly cross country on opposite ends of the plane. There was a stewardess named Karen who was so rude. She clearly was not happy to be working, never smiled, and banged on the bathroom door while I was peeing because I was "not allowed to miss the instruction video." Had I not seen it a few hours earlier, I would have waited to use the restroom. Good thing they showed the same video three times in a row."
Pros: "Upgraded to business class"
Cons: "I've never been so cold on a flight in my life. Had two blankets on me and still shivered the whole flight. Others in the cabin were wearing coats and sweaters - in July. Crazy cold."
Cons: "Lost our bag in LAX"
Pros: "I liked the crew, they were nice and tried to help, food and refreshment was good."
Cons: "1) Flight from Dallas delayed and caused me to miss the connecting flight from London to Vienna. 2) Monitor for the entertainment not working AT ALL. Crew tried to reset it multiple times, but it didn't help. So flight was longer due to delay and I was looking at the BLACK SCREEN entire time. 3) I attempted to read my book. Since it was a night flight and overhead lights were off to prevent disturbance, I needed to use reading light. Well, the reading light was not working. I called a flight attendant to assist me. She tried to help me, but confirmed that it was out of order. 4) There was not information regarding terminal for my connecting flight. Captain kindly referred us to look up this information on our individual screens. Mine was not working, neither was the screen of the passengers next to me. Not helpful at all."
Cons: "The seats are too tight."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Disaster"
Cons: "Lovely flight, but onboarding groups were a nightmare. Given the chaos, they started forcing bags to be checked early."
Cons: "I'm still limping slightly from not having hardly any legroom period but it's just a fact that you're playing too not designed for people like me"
Pros: "No complaints. Keep up the good work, American!"
Cons: "I don't like the fact that food has to be purchased. I liked it much better when the food was included in the price, as it still lives in the major international overseas airlines."
Pros: "Rveything ok i noticed American keeps lights low for people rest unlike other airlines"
Cons: "Everything fine considering hours in plane also note passing out fooda all once jal toyko manila didnt like"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane was falling apart. Food served frozen cold. Entertainment was commercials then nothing for hours. Crew was a mess and rude. Flight from hell."
Pros: "The flight between WA D.C. And Phoenix went well. Very nice staff, orderly onboarding"
Cons: "Arrived in Phoenix and hurried to my next gate for the flight to Palm Springs only to discover a delay in the flight. No marguees were updated, no explanation just the plane had not arrived. Soon after we were told of a gate change, the marquee then said the flight would not arrive until 11 pm it is a one hour flight, so we actually arrived at 10 pm."
Pros: "Crew, food and entertainment."
Cons: "Seats are toght. Just an inch more would have made a long flight much better."
Pros: "There's nothing good about AA"
Cons: "One of the few things SouthWest, Alaska & United did was the proper queuing of people to get into the plane. AA is a free for all - those who follow regulations will fall behind. In this flight from Boston to LAX - I heard there were 80 Priority checking - are you kidding me. Group 1 does not help if I have 80 Priority seating and one family took 12 people in with one elderly. It's good to place Elderly and Military up front first - but to take the Whole entire family - that's not fair - you have 8 able bodies who should be in line with the rest of the crowd. Also who heard of 80 Priority check ins - normally, that's Group 1. Never flying AA unless I a desperate."
Pros: "Very good"
Pros: "See above. Worst flight in 60 years of flying.Their systems failed at every point-- changing flights without carrying over seat reservations "Too close to flight time""
Cons: "Attitude of many employees--" tough on you, suck it up. stuff happens". poor communication re flight change, rejection of AA Advantage Mastercard to pay for baggage check and get boarding pass and seat assignment. Rerouted me by 200 yards to TSA checkpoint I could see was 30 yards away. When flight arrived in SFO the arrivals board never showed it and there was no carousel shown for checked baggage. I finally had to go to customer service, where attendant just pointed to my bag on the floor with lots of others from the flight, shrugged, no apology, and chewed her gum a little faster before turning her back."
Cons: "Barcelona airport boarding area is a disaster. Poorly designed and not travel friendly. Very minimal choice of movies on the plane."
