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."

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."
Cons: "When I checked my two bags, I was told to pick them up in Doha and recheck them to my final destination at Rwanda. When I arrived in Doha I was told by the transfer desk that I did not need to pick up my bags because they had been checked to my final destination. I even asked them to pull up my flight information and to confirm that, which they did. However, when I arrived in Kigali, Rwanda, my bags were no where to be found. No one has found them yet. I also called Qatar Air before my flight and asked about hotel accommodations for my layover because my layover was from 6:00 pm to 7 am. When I called, I was told that I would be given a complimentary hotel room because of the length of the layover. However, when I arrived I was told that I did not qualify for the hotel accommodation. Then, I was told that a hotel room would cost 250. When i arrived at the hotel, I was told the cheapest was 325."
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.

Pros: "Great personnels!!"
Cons: "Overall nothing but great Service!!"
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."

Cons: "Too long of a wait for "parking" after landing"

Pros: "Comfort, amenities"
Pros: "Emirates leg was good. Easy checkin and I think slightly large than usual seats."
Cons: "I bought a return from Emirates with the returning flight from Australia to London as a code share with Qantas.

Too bad, as I would have been prepared to pay extra for a seat upgrade."
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "One carryon and no personal item - inconvenient and irritating! Security staff disposed of manicure scissors that met printed guidelines. Checked baggage was damaged, will avoid Emirates because of this. Staff, comfort, and food were very good, but will still select other airlines"
Cons: "My original flight was delayed so I needed to book for a hotel in manila and need to rebook my connecting flight from christchurch to queenstown. Supposedly, the airline company should offer a reimbursement for all my additional expenses. Vey inconvenient on my part."

Pros: "A380! Overall is good. I liked a bag of accessories including eye mask and socks."
Cons: "In flight food in Arabic style, my brother didn't like much of that styled food. But I'm OK with it. They provided light meal ( "pide" lamb/veggie filled bread or choice of fruit). The veggie pide was a bit weird. But overall, the food was not so bad."
Pros: "Got upgraded to Business!"
Cons: "Nothing really, crew was professional"
Pros: "Bar in business class"
Cons: "I specifically booked my flight with emirates as I prefer their service,food,staff,seating and entertainment and was instead told once I arrived at Auckland airport that we were instead flying with qantas .

Cons: "Extremely overweight passenger next to me. It was awful, her body was in contact with me the entire flight. The most uncomfortable, hot, smelly, awkward flight Ive ever experienced. Its time you charge for 2 seats for people that are the size of 2 people. Not fair to other passengers to have to be so inconvenienced and extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Started my Movie on the Ground before takeoff"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and there was absolutely no announcement with everyone lined up at the scheduled departure time. Communication on the delay was non existent.

Cons: "Smallish serves of food (dinner & light breakfast) for a long flight"
Cons: "I tried to change the date and/or the routing for the return flight, but it would have cost more than to buy a new one-way ticket, so I didn't use it at all -- and got no refund."

Pros: "Arrived alive."
Cons: "Sketchy plane. Too many speed changes. Left late."
Cons: "My family of 4 were not seated together even though all four tickets were purchased together in the same booking. After booking through KAYAK for flights, the on-line check-in process was a nightmare with the KAYAK booking number not matching the information required by QANTAS. As my children were all spread over the plane, and two son's look very similar, a hostess almost did not serve one of my son's a meal as she believed my son had already received a meal further forward in the plane. Thankfully, upon checking, the hostess realised that it was a case of mistaken identity."
Cons: "There was no entertainment on board. There was provision for iPads in the backs of the seat, but none provided. There were drop down TVs but the audio was not working. Had I known in advance that this would be the case, I would have been able to prepare my own device and headphones."
Pros: "Love going to Yancey when we are pushed by the tail winds!"
Cons: "Breakfast was dire"
Pros: "Upon confirming my flight I had received a middle seat. When I got to Sydney I was able to talk a host at the gate to see if she can move to an aisle seat. She did and it was at the front of the row with plenty of leg room. I couldn’t have asked for a better flight home."
Cons: "The mess other passengers made. Have some respect for yourself and the stewardess. I could only imagine the home some of these people Live in."

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."

This caused many passengers to miss their connecting flight in Atlanta. When we arrived after midnight, one gate person was attempting to help 50 people with morning connecting flights and room accommodations. The airline knew 3 hours prior that they would have tired, hungry, frustrated passengers. To then have to wait more than an hour in a line to get a bed and or a meal was too much for most people. There were other smaller examples of how Delta's staff or procedures were not customer centric. I will avoid Delta for travel in the future, and I am getting out of their stock."
Pros: "Friendly but efficient. Allowed me to keep my bag with me without a fight."
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: "Was a nice flay , thanks"
Cons: "I like the AirFrance seats more than I like the Delta seats. AirFranxe has better entertainment too."
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: "Everything else good."
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: "Very good."
Cons: "Snack food not health.Cold and I lost my glasses in the boarding lounge and found the lost and found difficult to fill in as I didn't know area code. It took me a while to get I have not had a reply"
Cons: "Made me check a small bag and let others carry on 2 and3 bags very rude"
Pros: "The passenger seated next to me with a sense of humor about our situation."
Cons: "For some reason when I booked my flight, for this leg of it, I had "get seat assignment at gate". Once I got my seat assignment I thought I had a window seat: however, when I boarded the plane, I realized that I was in the very last seat of the plane in the window position, but no window. I was crammed in next to a wall and claustrophobic the whole way as I couldn't see anything, couldn't recline at all because behind me was the bathroom, and the engine roared at times in my ears to where I couldn't hear the passenger next to me when we tried to have conversation as the engine was right outside my "wall". We joked, when we could hear each other, that we must've pissed someone at Delta off the last time we flew them. I have no idea why I had to get my seat assignment at the gate for this particular flight, or why I was put in the 'flying coffin' seat, but it made for a very unpleasant experience. Why even have that seat in the plane? Everyone pays a lot of money to fly these days and deserves better than that seat when doing so. just take those two seats out and give everyone else a little more leg room = much better passenger experience for everyone...my suggestion if Delta really cares about the quality of passenger experience."
Cons: "No entertainment and only pretzel and peanuts available"
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude and not helpful. The checkin counter at the Sydney airport is hidden. Better signage would be helpful in locating the area"
Pros: "Arriving and departing flights were at totally opposite ends of airport"
Pros: "Nothing,really other than the fact that it Got us home."
Cons: "At least offer water. There was no service whatsoever"
Pros: "Crew was great"

Cons: "There’s no headphones aboard for entertainment"
Pros: "The legroom."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable American airlines is the worst"
Cons: "We were rerouted by JustFly prior to our trip. Instead of Venice - Philadelphia-Tampa at noon, we were moved to Venice - London - Chicago - Tampa. Flight from London - Chicago was delayed 6 hours. Of course missed connection in Chicago. Spent night in Chicago and arrived home 48 hours after leaving for Venice airport."

Cons: "Last to board with a young child."
Pros: "The business class cabin is one of the best in the business with a great seat and onboard product. The food was good and the snack bar is great for when you need something mid-flight. American has one of the best selections of inflight entertainment with tons of movies and TV shows available for their long-haul flights."
Cons: "Boarding at Sydney International Airport was a bit of a chore. There is a pre-screening area where they check passports and boarding passes prior to reaching the gate. People are randomly selected for secondary screening. Give yourself extra time to board."
Cons: "2.5 hour delay going, 3.5 hour delay returning. All because their paperwork had not been submitted on time. Terrible organization."

Pros: "Leg room"
Pros: "It was a very short flight so not too much to go wrong."
Cons: "I had a carry on and a laptop case that fit under the seat. The laptop case has wheels and a handle. The gate agent said I need to check one bag, even though I could show that the laptop case was within the specs for fitting under the seat. When I tried to argue with her, she said, "One of your bags is going to be checked--which one is it going to be?" Bad attitude."
Pros: "Relatively uncorwdedcat that time so I got row to myself. Good amount of legroom"
Pros: "My wife and I have flown on many airlines. This was one of our best experiences. All the staff that we came across were ridiculously helpful and very understanding. Despite us getting held up in traffic and running quite late, staff members of both American Airlines and Qantas were extremely calming and reassuring the whole way through. Flight was extremely comfortable and entertainment was fantastic. Made the trip really easy."
Cons: "Food wasn't the greatest. Barely touched the breakfast and dinner meal. Supposedly the flight had free wifi, but I honestly couldn't eat that to work for me."

Cons: "Carry on limitations"
Pros: "The crew, and the plane, confy. Was a good flight in general."
Pros: "QF operated by American Airlines. First time flying AA from LAX to SYD (typically do this trip once a year). Overall a good experience, much better than I was anticipating. They diid not charge for surfboard, which was great. Plane is smaller than Qantas Airbus 380, so boarding and getting off plane was quicker. Would fly again."
Pros: "With American Airlines in general there is no such thing as customer service anymore .Staff at desk at the airport are rude .Could learn a few things from your Australian counterparts at Qantas airlines"
Cons: "No respect for customers anymore"
Pros: "Somewhat disappointing on the snack options..."
Pros: "I loved the Qantas plane that took us from LAX to Sudney. It was so quiet and smooth, and each seat in coach had very slight improvements , such as a head rest that moved, and cushions that atually felt comfortable. I think it was a new Dreamliner or something similar. AA should use these."
Pros: "overall best airline I flew, steve"
Pros: "Good assortment of movies"
Pros: "The crew was really nice, food was good, movie selection was also good."
Cons: "Too crowded. Too many seats made it too hard and inconvenient to get up to stretch out or walk around on such a long flight. Which is recommended to prevent blood clots."
